Chapter 764: Main City of the Jiangling Country
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Worryfree City could already be considered very vast in terms of area, let alone the entire Jiangling Country. Only the word boundlessly vast would be able to describe it and it was unknown how many powers existed within it.
As for the Cloud Prefecture, it was so large that it was even difficult for immortal-foundation experts to want to walk out of it. One could very well imagine how vast that was.
In a location of wilderness somewhere in the Jiangling Country, there was a young man mounted on a demonic beast, soaring through the air at a casual speed. This young man had his eyes closed and was in a cross-legged position, cultivating atop the back of the demonic beast.
As for this demonic beast, it was pure white in color. It looked extremely furry and had a very adorable demeanor.
"Yawn, this is so tiring~"
A human voice issued from the mouth of this demonic beast as it stretched its paws to scratch its back, constituting a very comical sight.
Qin Wentian rolled his eyes and directly used some strength to rap Little Rascal on its head, "You rascal... Before this you slept till the end of the heavens and earth and you still have the gall to say that you are tired now?! I even needed to use an immortal-ranked treasure to drag you along as I flew."
"It's precisely because I slept too long that's why I'm still tired." A bout of sleep for Little Rascal lasted over a hundred days, and it finally woke up in the past few days. Right now, his conversational skills were much smoother than before. Although there were still hints of childishness in its voice, it could at least convey what it wanted to say with a single breath.
"Also, in the future please stop calling me Little Rascal. This name is simply too trashy for my taste." Little Rascal inclined its head and whined.
"Then what do you want me to call you?" Qin Wentian asked.
"Let this baobao* think about it. How do you feel about 'Primordial Beast Emperor?'" Little Rascal's eyes brightened.
"Scram." Qin Wentian aimed a slap over. This Little Rascal wanted to term itself as the primordial beast emperor?
"Ai, this baobao has already awakened my inherited memories, I am truly a descendant of the Primordial Beast Emperor, how can you treat me like this?" Little Rascal drew in a deep breath and stared at the skies, exuding a sense of desolation like that of a mythological beast being treated like a common sheep.
"This sleep of yours has really granted you quite a bit of comprehension, but sadly it's all wasted on elevating your boasting abilities." Qin Wentian continued to roll his eyes.
"This baobao can't be bothered to argue with you, arghhh I'm so tired..." Little Rascal's eyes were about to close but right at this moment, it noticed quite a number of silhouettes flying over their way. One among those silhouettes was a beautiful woman clad in revealing attire. Her snowy white shoulders were delicate and sexy, and her cleavage was faintly discernible every time her chest heaved.
"So beautiful!" Little Rascal's sleepiness instantly faded away as it instantly dashed over with Qin Wentian on its back. When he neared, it transformed back to its original small size and leapt right into the direction where the bosom of the woman was located.
Qin Wentian suddenly had an impulse to cough blood, he had no time to react and he only saw Little Rascal transforming into a streak of white light that landed within the woman's bosom.
"Sister you are so beautiful!" Little Rascal's baby voice rang out. Just when the woman was about to get angry, her anger melted upon hearing that adorable baby voice. A smile appeared on her face as she hugged Little Rascal closer into her chest, "What a cute little demonic beast."
"That's me alright, this baobao is a singular and unique demonic beast, the only one of my kind underneath the heavens." Little Rascal's paws got increasingly naughtier as it pawed the woman's breasts. Qin Wentian who was watching by the side felt black lines appearing on his face. This vile beast...
He felt especially awkward when the male companions around the woman cast their cold gazes over to him. Qin Wentian felt as though he didn't know whether to laugh or cry. He would definitely be framed to death by this little rascal in the future. This long sleep has made it even more lecherous than before.
"Mhm?" At this moment, one of the men stiffened for an instant when he stared at Qin Wentian. A light flickered in his eyes as he came closer and asked, "Sir, may we inquire where you are from and where are you planning to go?"
"Just a drifter with no purpose in mind." Qin Wentian laughed carefreely. Although his eyes contained hints of a smile, his heart was filled with caution. He naturally had noticed the flickering light as well as the stiffened expression of that man earlier.
"Roaming alone in the vast immortal realms is very dangerous. We are all from one sect and are currently preparing to head towards the Driftsnow City of the Jiangling Country. How about joining us as we travel together? At the very least, we can take care of each other." That young man smiled, as though he was filled with good intentions regarding Qin Wentian.
"Sure, sure." Qin Wentian initially wanted to reject but who would have thought that Little Rascal beat him to it and replied first, causing Qin Wentian to glare harshly at that little fellow.
At this moment, the woman turned her gaze over and smiled, "I'm called Leng Yi. How about we travel together?"
"Just promise this beautiful sister!" Little Rascal egged Qin Wentian on. Qin Wentian could only helplessly nod his head, "Okay fine, why are you guys heading over to the Driftsnow City?"
"Doesn't sir know?" Leng Yi curiously stared at Qin Wentian as she smiled. "There's an immortal spirit manifesting itself in the Driftsnow City. Just some time ago, experts from all over the Cloud Prefecture are all rushing over to the Driftsnow City. Maybe Sir has always been roaming the wilderness and had little contact with others, hence you did not know of this news."
"That's true, I've been cultivating out in the wilderness for quite some time before this." Qin Wentian nodded. "However, what do you mean that an immortal spirit is manifesting itself?"
"You would know once you arrived there. This is a major event of the Cloud Prefecture and it's especially important to divine inscriptionists of master weaponsmiths. Because of this matter, the Jiang Clan even dispatched a team to the Driftsnow City earlier to study the situation. However, there's an unexpected accident which occurred when they passed by the Worryfree City. I wonder have you heard of that?" Leng Yi smiled as she looked at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian's heart fluttered. He didn't expect that was the reason the Jiang Clan would pass by the Worryfree City, resulting in a storm of commotion because of this major event. But since the Jiang Clan would be heading there, it meant that the Driftsnow City would be quite dangerous to him.
"No. I haven't heard anything about it." Qin Wentian shook his head.
"Don't worry about it, let's travel together then?" Leng Yi laughed.
Qin Wentian glanced at Little Rascal before resignedly nodding his head, "Might as well."
"I still don't know what sir's name is?" Leng Yi flashed a radiant smile. She stepped towards Qin Wentian as her fragrance drifted over. Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with a strange light before he indifferently stated, "Tianwen."
"So it's brother Tianwen. The journey to the Driftsnow City is very far and perilous, being able to become companions on the road could also be considered fate. Let's set out immediately." Leng Yi smiled as she moved ahead. Her male companions exchanged glances before they too, set off after her. Qin Wentian had no fluctuations to his expression and followed after.
The Worryfree City could be considered located at a very remote area of the Jiangling Country. While the Driftsnow City was one of the three largest main cities of the Cloud Prefecture and belonged to the core of the prefecture. Naturally, experts there were as common as the clouds.
Just the journey there alone needed them to travel for several days and finally, in the horizons several thousand miles away, they could faintly see the outline of the Driftsnow City in the distance.
At this moment, Qin Wentian stood at a location a few thousand miles outside the Driftsnow City. This place was akin to a small city, used by a waypoint for travellers. However, this small city located outside the Driftsnow City could only be an adornment to accentuate the majesticness of the Driftsnow City. It was like comparing a hut and an exquisite villa, there was no need to compare at all.
From afar, a city so tall that it seemed to touch the heavens was located there. The walls of the city was ten thousand meters tall and there were a total of eighteen divine weapons embedded atop the walls, their aura of sharpness radiating outwards, creating an extremely terrifying atmosphere.
"Although the Worryfree City has immortal-ranked powers within, it's only a very small city at a remote region of the Cloud Prefecture. This Driftsnow City before us is one of the three largest cities of the Jiangling Country, and it could be said that it was a main city. The size and aura of it naturally dwarfed the Worryfree City by over tens or hundreds of times." Qin Wentian silently mused.
Just the size of this city could be comparable to a particle world. No wonder it was worthy of the term 'main city.'
"Brother Tianwen, we will soon arrive." Leng Yi at the side walked up and stood beside Qin Wentian. Staring at that unending streams of people in the air and ground heading towards the same location, she gave a charming smile, "Look, all these people are extraordinary. There are even major powers from the Cloud Prefecture rushing over here."
"Is the legend of the Driftsnow City true?" Qin Wentian mumbled. Through these few days, he gradually learned about the legend of the Driftsnow City. This legend was passed down from ancient times, and right now, there were glimmers that this legend could become reality hence it attracted countless experts from major powers including the powerful sacred ground of the Cloud Prefecture, the Jiang Clan.
"How can something that can create such an uproar be false? Those experts of the Cloud Prefecture are no fools." Leng Yi smiled. "Let's go and find an inn to enjoy some good food before we continue on our way, heading towards the Driftsnow City."
"Sure." Qin Wentian nodded. A streak of white light flashed by, as Little Rascal jumped back onto his shoulder and laid there. Upon staring at the city, it spoke in its baby voice, "This city is so tall, and baobao can feel an energy awakening."
"Truly?" Leng Yi giggled as she stared at Little Rascal, feeling tickled by its words.
"What this baobao says is naturally real!" Little Rascal recalcitrantly stated.
"Fine, I believe you." Leng Yi nodded before descending downwards. However, she discovered that Qin Wentian remained standing at his original location and couldn't help but to turn her head as she stated, "Tianwen, let's go."
"It's fine. Since we already arrived at the Driftsnow City, let's split." Qin Wentian emotionlessly added. After which, he took Little Rascal and head off in another direction, speedily rushing towards the Driftsnow City. This scene caused Leng Yi's brows to furrow as a cold light flickered within the depths of her eyes.
"Hold up." At this moment, Leng Yi spoke. Her voice no longer had gentleness and warmth and there was only coldness.
Qin Wentian turned his gaze over, staring at Leng Yi, "Is there something the matter?"
"Your name isn't Tianwen, and should be Qin Wentian right?" Leng Yi flexed her willowy waist and walked towards Qin Wentian, the smile in her eyes turning into cruel amusement.
"Why do you know who I am?" Qin Wentian asked in a low voice.
"The entire Jiangling Country has an order for your arrest, how can I not know?" Leng Yi smiled. After which she stared at Little Rascal, "This little bastard even took advantage of this noble lady, does it think that I have no idea what it was trying to do?"
Little Rascal's gaze flickered. He stared at Leng Yi and spoke, "This baobao is so angry. This ugly woman is an evil thing!"
"Little bastard, do you want me to stew you or braise you in a pot?" Leng Yi snickered. Her male companions stepped forth at the same moment, arriving without being summoned, tightly surrounding Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian's gaze swept over. He already knew that this woman had a motive right at the start when they first encountered her and always had his guard up around her. To think that this was caused by the order of arrest that was announced throughout the Jiangling Country. Seems like he needed to change his identity before he can enter the Driftsnow City!
Baobao (Little Rascal is referring to itself as 'Treasure Treasure/Darling" or Lil Treasure).
