Chapter 762: Ruthless
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
A myriad of suppressive destruction palm imprints descended, even the void seemed about to collapse. Jiang Kuang gritted his teeth. With a roar of rage, his constellation was unleashed. A gigantic lance coalesced from astral light appeared behind him as currents of destruction energy flooded the area. This was a manifestation of his constellation.
"KILL!" Jiang Kuang was truly angered, he was actually forced to such a state by Qin Wentian. At this moment, the constellation behind him swept out, forcibly sweeping away the myriad of descending palm imprints amidst unceasingly thunderous sounds born from the impact.
Jiang Kuang then stepped forward, controlling his manifestation, stabbing towards Qin Wentian.
However, at this moment, Qin Wentian's body became incomparably terrifying. Resplendent runic lights enveloped him as he continued expanding in size, resembling a true fiendgod.
He then too, unleashed his constellation. Behind Qin Wentian, a glowing towering gigantic figure could be seen, it gave off the sensation that it could even trampled the heavens, and suppress everything in existence.
Qin Wentian stomped down in the air, as the giant figure behind him mirrored his movements. The constellation lance of Jiang Kuang was directly trampled underneath as it let out mad whistling noises. But under the crushing impact of the suppressive force, it eventually could hold no longer as cracks appeared on it.
"Since you want to talk about limits, let me show you mine." Qin Wentian emotionlessly stated. A white candle flame illuminated his body, joining together with the circulating runic lights. At this instant, Qin Wentian seemed to be bathing in a divine glow, exuding an unfathomably powerful aura.
Qin Wentian coldly spoke as he unleashed the suppressive power of the Fiendgod Suppression Art, jolting the lance so badly that it shattered apart. Even the space between them was trembling, and at this instant there seemed to be an area of suppressive destruction around Qin Wentian.
"Young master be careful!" An immortal-foundation expert sensed the degree of force and warned Jiang Kuang. This attack by Qin Wentian was inconceivably powerful and had reached the standard of Jiang Kuang's extreme limit. Who would have thought that the combat prowess of this second-level ascendant would be so shockingly powerful.
Jiang Kuang grimaced. A moment later, an actual short-looking black lance appeared in his hands as he casually pierced it out. Buffeting storms of destruction ravaged the area where he pointed as a desolate black aura blanketed the entire space. Qin Wentian explosively retreated, the force behind his powerful attack was wiped out completely by Jiang Kuang's weapon in an instant.
"Immortal-ranked weapon." Qin Wentian retreated, staring at the lance in Jiang Kuang's hand. His eyes shone with an unmatched sharpness as he stared at Jiang Kuang and spoke, "A fifth-level ascendant is merely at this level? Regardless of combat prowess or weapons, I exceed you in both aspects. I, Qin, never had any grudges with your Jiang Clan and don't want to start an incident. If you release my sister now, I can forgive and forget everything."
Qin Wentian's tone of voice was as domineering as before. This wasn't because he was confident but rather, it was because he deeply understood a certain logic. In the immortal realms, if he displayed himself as weak, don't even mention about him fighting against Jiang Kuang. It would be a problem for him to even walk to Jiang Kuang's side without interference from other sources.
Only by displaying an arrogance that belonged to yourself would the other party give you sufficient respect. Naturally, the prerequisite is that your strength must reach a certain level to match with the arrogance you displayed. If not, how could one stun all the experts present at the banquet here today?
And indeed as expected, after those present personally witnessed Qin Wentian's overwhelming combat strength with their eyes, the vigilance and respect in their eyes deepened by several degrees. Given the level of combat prowess they just witnessed, they in fact wouldn't believe it if there were people who said Qin Wentian wasn't from a major power.
This person seemed so young and should be within only forty years of age.
Jiang Kuang inclined his head, staring at Qin Wentian. Three levels... This guy jumped three levels to fight him and he was the one at a disadvantage. This naturally wasn't a glorious matter.
"Your combat prowess is really not bad. But if it's only like this, I still have no wish to release her." Jiang Kuang stared at Qin Wentian as he spoke. Today, he definitely will make Qin Wentian reveal his background. If he doesn't, he didn't even need to think about bringing that young woman away.
Jiang Kuang didn't care for how domineering Qin Wentian was. The Jiang Clan wasn't simply a strong power, they had always maintained connections with several powers on their level. Even if Qin Wentian hailed from a power they couldn't afford to offend, he believed that that power wouldn't intervene and deal with his Jiang Clan for such a small matter.
In addition, if Qin Wentian truly had this background, he would have long revealed its name. Why was there a need for him to act like this?
Jiang Kuang was even speculating that the power Qin Wentian belonged to is weaker than his Jiang Clan. This must be the reason why Qin Wentian didn't dare to say which power he was from.
Hence, he wanted to force Qin Wentian to say the name. If not, he wouldn't release Qin Qing.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" Qin Wentian coldly asked. That ice-cold eyes of his looked at Jiang Kuang, containing a terrifying frost within.
"Yes." Jiang Kuang nodded.
Qin Wentian replied. At this moment he was exceedingly calm. The crowd only saw the light around him shimmering as he stepped towards Qin Qing.
"You want to directly seize her away?" A mocking light flickered in Jiang Kuang's eyes. The battle lance in his hands stabbed out again as a boundless destructive energy gushed towards Qin Wentian. It was so strong that even the space between them felt like it was about to be torn apart.
Qin Wentian stepped onto the immortal-ranked shuttle and soared through the skies in a beautiful arc. His third eye appeared, its energy directly penetrating through Jiang Kuang's sea of consciousness, causing a terrifying constellation to appear in his mind. There seemed to be countless golden-colored figures that were rushing at him, and the sight of this caused his mind to trembled.
The demon sword slashed through like a streak of lightning, and accompanying the humming of the demon sword, was an exceedingly fearsome killing intent being exuded.
"YOU DARE?" The nearby immortal-foundation experts all roared in rage upon seeing Qin Wentian releasing killing intent. Even before they closed in, the weight of their combined immortal might had already arrived.
However, at this moment, Qin Wentian directly turned his palm and pressed it into his body. A strand of true immortal might circulated around him before transforming into a layer of immortal armor. Even Jiang Kuang's immortal-ranked battle lance was unable to penetrate his defense. Qin Wentian continued his way towards Jiang Kuang, soaring over on his shuttle.
An immortal expert from the Jiang Clan executed a fearsome finger art, blasting onto Qin Wentian. However, the immortal armor around Qin Wentian absorbed the force of the blow as dull thudding sound echoed in the air. Yet, the armor wasn't destroyed despite absorbing the power of that attack. Qin Wentian paid it no heed and continued his way forward.
The speed of the shuttle was simply too fast. In the blink of an eye, Qin Wentian already arrived before Jiang Kuang.
"You..." Jiang Kuang paled when he discovered that his attack had no effect on Qin Wentian. Right now, he could only mount a hasty retreat. There was no time for him to take out other treasures during the instance of this short moment.
Everything happened too quickly.
"Puchi..." How sharp was the demon sword? It tore through Jiang Kuang's body like cutting apart tofu, instantly sapping away at Jiang Kuang's life force.
"NO!" Jiang Kuang's countenance drastically changed as he shrieked in fear. Those present at the banquet all stood up and at this moment, they only felt chills trembling their bodies as they involuntarily shivered. For some reason at this moment, they felt cold, so cold.
Today was supposed to be a day of welcome for the Jiang Clan, and as a representative and leader of the entourage that came today, Jiang Kuang was actually killed by someone?
"Everyone halt." An ice cold voice echoed from the air. Qin Wentian pointed his sword at Jiang Kuang's heart. The flowing armor of light around his body had now been completely shattered. Experts from the Jiang Clan surrounding him as an oppressive aura gushed forth from them, each of them shaking with anger. They stared at Qin Wentian with cold eyes while feeling their hearts pounding madly in a frenzy when they saw the sword pointed at their young master's heart.
"Release him." An immortal-foundation expert waved his hand as the surrounding space instantly solidified, as though some force was locking it down.
"Chi, chi..." A light sound rang out, it was the sound of a sword piercing into flesh. Qin Wentian held Jiang Kuang with one hand while his other continued driving the sword in, aiming for the heart.
At this instant, Jiang Kuang was completely frightened silly and was as dumb as a wooden chicken. Even in his dreams never would he have imagined that this person was able to take his life away at this instant. In addition, this person actually dared to do this...
"Open a path up." Qin Wentian dragged Jiang Kuang as he walked forward. The experts around all panted nervously as the fluctuations of their powerful auras could be felt. However, despite so, Qin Wentian continued forward and they involuntarily stepped aside, opening up a path for him. Nobody dared to obstruct him, this young man was crazy. In front of so many immortal-foundation experts, he even dared to be so ruthless and wouldn't hesitate to kill Jiang Kuang.
"Release me, and we shall call it quits with the matter earlier." Jiang Kuang only felt his heart go cold. He was truly frightened. He had never met someone so ruthless before.
Qin Wentian merely glanced at him coldly without saying anything. This was the worst situation that would occur.
Before he came, Qin Wentian had already made many plans. He had many immortal treasures from the experts of the War Immortal Palace on him and he should be able to threaten and control Jiang Kuang's life if he moved fast enough. If those from the Jiang Clan didn't want to release Qin Qing, he would do what he did, directly aiming for the kill.
"Qin Qing, come over." Qin Wentian walked towards her as he spoke.
Qin Qing finally recovered from her daze. She directly boarded Qin Wentian's shuttle, but at this moment the immortals of the Jiang Clan all stepped forth. "Sir, please release the young master, and you can go your way after that."
"Bzzz!" The immortal shuttle directly arced through the skies, speeding towards a direction. His demon sword was still embedded inside Jiang Kuang's body, constantly sapping away at his life force amidst the screams of agony from Jiang Kuang. None of those present dared to stop Qin Wentian, they merely watched on as the shuttle shot past them.
"Pursue him!" The experts of the Jiang Clan chased after, yet they only saw Qin Wentian taking out a spatial-type treasure scroll. Terrifying spatial fluctuations rocked the area and with a toss of his hand, accompanied by a shriek of pain, Jiang Kuang was directly tossed towards the experts of the Jiang Clan.
"Bzz!" The spatial transference scroll activated as Qin Wentian and Qin Qing vanished completely. At the same instant, immortal might suddenly radiated from Jiang Kuang as a terrifying projection formed by a strand of protective immortal sense manifested. The immortal's silhouette formed was none other than from the immortal sense left behind by Jiang Kuang's father. Earlier when Qin Wentian stabbed the sword in Jiang Kuang, it was already too late when Jiang Kuang's father discovered it. Hence, he chose not to manifest via the immortal sense at that moment but rather, chose to wait for a better opportunity instead.
However, it was as though Qin Wentian had long anticipated his presence!
