Chapter 755: Zhao Yuyan's Determination
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
As to why Qin Wentian didn't exit the palace, it wasn't because he had too many insights regarding the essence of innate techniques after perusing the treasured tome. He spent the bulk of his time to study these runes that would trigger the heavenly laws, starting his comprehension from the very source.
Every single rune, even if it were those low-ranked ones, had the ability to trigger law energy when applied to attacks.
There are naturally a myriad of runes. Sword-type runes in sword imprints, palm-type runes in palm imprints and even eye-type runes.
From the start of his cultivation till now, Qin Wentian had cultivated many innate techniques, but he had never tried to comprehend them from the origin source.
After he read the treasured tome, he grew increasingly aware of the triggering process that converts the essence into law energy.
For example, Qin Wentian at this moment was sitting cross-legged with his perception immersed within the scroll so thoroughly like he was one with it. This treasured tome was all encompassing and seemed to have everything. It was boundlessly vast and immeasurable, and contained a myriad of transformations. At this moment, he was observing a certain transformation. That was a strand of elephant-type energy. Boundless light flashed and that strand of essence transformed into a terrifying leg-type innate technique that resembled a demonic elephant trampling the skies. The incomparably thick hoof exuded boundless might, capable of dominating everything in an area.
This process of triggering transformed unceasingly in Qin Wentian's perception. He could see everything clearly as he imprinted the knowledge in his sea of consciousness.
Resplendent light circulated around his body as he suddenly float in the air. His body mirrored the movements he saw in the scroll perfectly, his leg casually stomping downwards. Rumbling sounds thundered out as the heavens and earth trembled. A gigantic elephant hoof manifested and right now if there was someone beneath Qin Wentian, they would be undoubtedly trampled to death.
"How powerful. This powerful force can be used casually at will through more practice." Qin Wentian mused as he closed his eyes again. Once more, he sank into a state of self-immersion and contemplated on the truths recorded in it.
Time slowly flowed by. Bai Wuya waited outside the Heavenly Talisman Palace quietly while the other expert felt more depressed with every passing day. He came here this time in high spirits, wanting to enter the palace to confirm his spark of insight but sadly the palace had a rule that only one person would be allowed within it to peruse the tome at any given moment. Since Qin Wentian is currently occupying it, he had no choice but to wait outside.
In the Worryfree City, roughly a hundred days had passed since Qin Wentian became the victor of that gambling match. The operations of the Immorseize Residence never stopped and they continued having gambling matches once every seven days. Sadly, the level of the commotion created by the treasures offered never exceeded the hype back then when the Sky Demon Oracle Bone was offered.
That day, the Immorseize Residence put up the Sky Demon Oracle Bone as an offer, inviting people to participate.
Han Luo, Xie Yu, Zhao Yuyan and the other dazzling geniuses of the Worryfree City had all participated but none of them acquired the offered item at the end. It was won by a complete stranger that was proficient in divine inscriptions and only had a cultivation base at the second level of the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. The background of that young man was mysterious, nobody knew anything regarding him and he was one of the weakest in terms of cultivation bases among the participants.
After obtaining the Sky Demon Oracle Bone, he wanted to depart immediately but Zhao Yuyan was reluctant to let him go, wanting to force a trade with her overbearing obnoxiousness. Conflict occurred and combat happened. Zhao Yuyan who had a cultivation at the fourth level of Celestial Phenomenon was actually defeated.
As the disciple of the supreme elder of the Golden Armor Sect and a genius of her sect, she was actually defeated by someone who jumped two levels up to fight her. This naturally caused a great deal of commotion and it was especially so when the immortal sense of her master appeared. However, at that moment, a mysterious white-robed man appeared beside the victor and after a single word telling the supreme elder to scram, the immortal sense of Zhao Yuyan's master actually vanished! After that, the two didn't even bother to kill Zhao Yuyan as they left immediately. It felt like they held her in contempt.
After that, both Han Luo and Xie Yu tried searching for the mysterious young man but both failed.
At this moment within the Qin Clan, Qin Feng and his uncle was currently in a quarrel. After Qin Feng chased his uncle away, his expression was extremely unsightly as he spoke, "Qin Qing, let's go talk to grandpa about this. He's getting more and more overboard."
"It's useless. He didn't do anything to us. Telling grandpa would only make him angry." Qin Qing shook her head, her face was also red from suppressed anger.
Earlier, their uncle came here to tell them that recently there was a major character who stop by in Worryfree City. The City Lord was preparing for his welcome and wanted to recruit beautiful girls to serve him. Their uncle wanted Qin Qing to register, hoping that she would be selected.
Because to him, even if one was a servant, as long as they were servants of a powerful character, they would still be above the common crowd, exuding resplendent brilliance.
Qin Feng and Qin Qing almost went mad with rage when they heard that. What did this bastard treat Qin Qing as?
It was as though he wanted nothing more than to drive Qin Qing out of the Qin Clan faster and treated her like a commodity.
"He's too despicable." Qin Feng grinded his teeth.
"Forget it." Qin Qing shook her head. "Is there any news of big brother Qin? He won't run into some trouble right?"
"I don't think so, big brother Qin's strength should be passable. There won't be anything that happened to him." Qin Feng shook his head.
"Let's hope so." Qin Qing furrowed her brows. Actually she knew that Qin Feng was also very worried. After interacting for a period of time, they had already treated Qin Wentian as their kin. Also, they got to know his personality after this periodic interaction and knew that Qin Wentian would definitely bid farewell to them if he wanted to leave. Now that he had silently disappeared, they were truly worried that something unfortunate might have befell him.
After all in the immortal realms, death was a common occurrence. Just offending the wrong people would invite the calamity of impending doom over one's head.
At this moment within the Worryfree City, there was a location exuding a majestic imposingness so great that no hegemons of particle worlds were able to match. In one of the great halls there, the female City Lord and her husband were both there. The City Lord was a beauty and was clad in a long gown that accentuate her figure. Her beautiful eyes sparkled with charm.
Her name was Bu Yanyu and the sturdy male with handsome features and a golden mane of hair was none other than a demonic beast that was a hegemon in a particle world. His entire body was filled with explosive strength and after ascending to immortality, he transformed into a demon immortal and took on the name of Xie Shi.
Within the great hall, There were many present. Their son Xie Yu was there as well.
"They will be here within seven days. How goes the preparations?" Bu Yanyu asked.
"Reporting to City Lord, we are all in the midst of preparing." Someone below replied.
"Mhm, this is a rare opportunity and we must make sure to grab it. Xie Yu if you can seize this chance and form good relations with them, you will be able to soar into the skies in a single step and walk further on your path. Hence, you better prepare well." Bu Yanyu spoke to her son Xie Yu.
"Mhm, most of the preparations are done. Sadly, the Sky Demon Oracle Bone was previously won by an unknown. How regretful." Xie Yu's eyes flashed with coldness. Back then he wanted the Sky Demon Oracle Bone because he wanted to use it as a meeting gift with one of the important characters that would soon come for a visit. However, he had failed.
"Just forget about past things, since you can't even locate the person. This upcoming event should be your concern instead. Are the beauties selected?" The golden-haired Xie Shi spoke out. His voice was brimming with energy, causing his words to resound and echo throughout the great hall.
"That should be completed soon. I already arranged for recruiting, I wonder if there are any results." Xie Yu calmly replied.
"There are no men in this world who don't love beauties. Strength is number one while beauties are number two. I want you to prepare more so there would definitely be someone that suits his tastes. Get those young and vivacious ones, those exuding mesmerizing charm. Search the city and get all of them regardless of the methods used. This matter has to be done to perfection." Xie Shi loudly commanded.
"Right." Xie Yu nodded. He turned his gaze onto a middle aged man, "Go and get this done. We don't force those immortal-ranked powers, just send them invitations, I'm sure they would agree. For those ordinary powers, just get them to come over. Tell them our City Lord mansion wouldn't mistreat them."
"Okay, I will do so immediately." That person nodded as he left the great hall and summoned his men to carry out the order. Soon after, everyone in the city learned of this news.
In the near future, a major character in the Cloud Prefecture would arrive in the Worryfree City. It was said that this person came from a sacred grounds of the Cloud Prefecture and had an extraordinary status. The City Lord mansion is currently recruiting beauties to accompany him and this news caused many beauties who had no background to feel a stirring in their hearts. To them, this was an extremely hard to come by opportunity.
The entire Worryfree City became extremely lively.
Right now in the Golden Armor Sect, Zhao Yuyan had also concluded her imprisonment. She quietly stood atop a mountain peak with her gaze turned towards the horizons.
"The sacred grounds of the Cloud Prefecture?" Zhao Yuyan mumbled. Her gaze then turned to an immortal palace on the highest peak as her eyes flashed coldly. "Master, you will definitely regret this."
After speaking, Zhao Yuyan headed out of the Golden Armor Sect. She wanted to go to the City Lord mansion of Worryfree City to be selected as one of the lucky females that would accompany the major character. She was doing this willingly.
She was unwilling to accept the treatment levied on her, she would show her master how wrong he was!
