Chapter 785: Slaying an Immortal
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
As the sound of Qin Wentian's voice faded, everyone present only felt stunned beyond words.
"He has gone mad, he has truly gone mad!" Somebody exclaimed, staring at the location Qin Wentian was at. That young man stood proudly in the air, exuding an incomparable arrogance. Although he did forge an immortal-ranked weapon and his talent was unmatched among those of the younger generations, he didn't know how to take a step back, his words were too unbridled.
It was fine if he adopted this attitude when facing those below the immortal-foundation realm, but when facing off against immortals, he actually even dared to say these words? He simply didn't know how the word 'death' was written.
Immortal-ranked characters weren't something mortals could contend against. This was an ironclad law.
Below immortals, everything was mortal.
In the eyes of immortals, below immortal-foundation no matter how outstanding someone's talent was, everything was illusory. These so-called geniuses, how many of them could truly transcend mortality?
Not one of those who are able to become immortals were ordinary people. They were all among the most dazzling of the heaven chosen of their generation.
At this moment, Qin Wentian said that that immortal was despicable and was an ant-like existence among those at the same realm, destined to be trampled upon by all. These words were clearly filled with provocation and the intent to humiliate, equivalent to a declaration of war towards an immortal.
This brat, what does he have to depend on to be so arrogant? He doesn't even place an immortal in his eyes?
"Could it be just because he managed to forge an immortal-ranked weapon? Did this event lead to his arrogance and to his ignorance of the immensity of heaven and earth? Did he really believe that with that weapon, he would be powerful enough to contend against immortals?" The hearts of the crowd speculated. Most probably, Qin Wentian would be in for an extremely painful lesson. In fact, he might even lose his life because of this.
And as expected, how could that immortal-foundation expert from the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor stand for these humiliating words said by someone of a lower cultivation realm? However, his countenance was still calm. To immortals, they have all endured the harshest of experiences before finally succeeding in transcending mortality. Their hearts were undoubtedly extremely resolute. Hence although he was angered, he could suppress it easily and the only sign of his rage was the cold light flickering within his eyes.
"Do you know that there's this saying in the immortal realms, 'One must never insult an immortal.'" That immortal-foundation expert stared at Qin Wentian as he spoke.
Qin Wentian naturally could clearly sense the killing intent radiating from this man. However from his perspective, after he forged an immortal-ranked weapon and obtained the recognition of the Nine Immortality Bells, he knew for sure that these people from the major powers would never rest until they knew of the secret hidden within. Since this was the case, he might as well take this chance to do some things. If not, there would still be others suppressing him without end.
"I've never heard of that before. I only know that those who humiliate others, deserve to be humiliated. You disregard the pride and dignity of others, so on what grounds do you have to receive respect? In my eyes, no matter mortals or immortals, there's only the difference between friends and foes." Qin Wentian's eyes indifferently stared straight at that immortal.
As the sound of his voice faded, that same immortal burst out into an incomparably arrogant laughter. His gaze was directed downwards, onto Qin Wentian as he replied, "Ignorant fool, only friend and foe? But are you even qualified to be my foe? Your life is nothing but a speck of dust in my life. So what even if you forged an immortal-ranked weapon? Now, I shall seize the immortal weapon you forged and reap your life away. No, on second thoughts, I shall leave you alive and perform a soulsearch on you, ripping your memories away."
Qin Wentian silently stared at the immortal, his countenance was as calm as water. He didn't rage, there was no fluctuations to his expression despite what that immortal had said.
"Are you now revealing your true nature now?" Qin Wentian stared as he continued, "Bring it on."
"I will let you know what it means to be an immortal." The immortal-foundation expert spoke with cold arrogance. His palm erupted outwards as a surge of gigantic palm imprint shot out, continuously growing larger as immortal light shimmered around it. The might within could shake even the heavens, and with a single smash, countless mortals would undoubtedly perish from the impact.
Although Qin Wentian was quite far from him, he still felt a supreme pressure boring down on him. With an intention of his will, the ancient bells tolled frenziedly as boundless light enveloped him in a resplendent armor of runic light, alleviating the pressure on him.
At the same time, the long spear that was shimmering with immortal light also erupted outwards, upon colliding with the palm imprints it broke apart everything..
However, this was merely the beginning.
"Do you really believe that with the aid of a mere immortal-ranked weapon, you would be able to obstruct me from killing you?" A voice filled with arrogance drifted over. That immortal stepped forth moving towards Qin Wentian and every single step caused the pressure boring down on him to increase, making the armor of light that enveloped him to tremble violently as though it could break apart at any moment. If it wasn't for the energy within the Nine Immortality Bells, this immortal-foundation expert would only need a single step to kill him.
The distance between mortals and immortals was inconceivably vast. This was especially so considering how weak Qin Wentian was. With only a cultivation base at the third-level of Celestial Phenomenon? How could he fight against an immortal?
"This young man is too brazen, he actually insulted an immortal? I'm afraid he would die for sure today." From afar, a spectator mumbled upon seeing this incredible scene while sighing in his heart at how terrifying immortals are.
Only to see that at this moment, the immortal was as though he had three heads and six arms, the number of palm imprints blasting out increased exponentially, so much that it seemed as though even the skies would be devoured, blasting towards Qin Wentian.
"Immortals are truly too fearsome, how can that young man hope to defend against this with merely an immortal-ranked weapon?"
It was as if everyone already saw how Qin Wentian would die. Each and everyone of the palm imprints in the air gleamed with immortal light, illuminating this entire space.
When immortal-foundation experts were in combat, their fight would be filled with resplendently beautiful lights.
Qin Wentian's countenance was as calm as ever with no fluctuations to it. He waved his hands and with an intention of will, an insane amount of power blasted out from the immortal-ranked spear.
"Divine weapon connected with immortality, a spear shaking the heavens!" Qin Wentian's eyes flickered with a terrifying coldness as the long spear swept out through the skies. This attack was like a full-out onslaught by a primeval giant, smashing apart the dazzling palm-imprints, as thunderous explosions rocked the air.
Even before the shockwaves born from the impact dissipated, the immortal-foundation expert arrived in the airspace above him. His body grew larger, a corona of immortal light circulated around him as he stared at Qin Wentian with a penetrative gaze. His eyes when he looked at Qin Wentian, were akin to looking at an ant, despite the fact that Qin Wentian had resisted his attacks twice.
However, it was impossible for the situation to change. In his eyes, Qin Wentian was already a dead man.
"To think that from borrowing the immortal energy within the Nine Immortality Bells, you actually managed to forge an immortal-ranked weapon. Although you are its creator, you aren't worthy enough to own it. In any case, why do the dead need immortal weapons?" That expert emotionlessly spoke.
The light radiating from him grew even more intense to the extent that immortal might completely permeated the atmosphere. Even for spectators who stood afar, they could clearly sense the pressure in the area.
"Time to end this." That immortal's silhouette flickered as an eye-piercing bright light flashed. A countless number of palm imprints blasted out at the same time, blotting out the skies.
At this moment, the chimes of the Nine Immortality Bells also filled the air, reverberating through the air.
"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!" The bell chimes echoed unceasingly, resonating as one as boundless runic light congregated around Qin Wentian. There seemed to be a surge of immortal qi gushing forth from within the bells. The immortal qi enveloped Qin Wentian and right now at this moment, it seemed as though there was a continuously expanding primordial gigantic figure standing in the air above Qin Wentian.
With Qin Wentian at the center, a towering figure of over 30,000 meters tall containing a heaven piercing might manifested.
This towering figure directly grabbed that divine long spear. In an instant, the immortal-ranked spear also enlarged, shining dazzling with untold radiance as an icy voice sounded out in the air.
"What you say is right, why do the dead need immortal weapons?"
This voice naturally belonged to Qin Wentian, however there were traces of solemness in it that contained an irresistible prestige.
That figure violently pierced the spear out with explosive might, shattering apart those boundless palm imprints with crushing force, as even space itself fell into pieces.
Everywhere the spear passed, a swath of desolate destruction could be seen, everything turning into the void from the pure power packed within.
The countenance of the immortal-foundation expert drastically changed. The immortal light radiating from him grew stronger as he frenziedly defended. However, it was useless, he couldn't halt the momentum of the divine spear.
This spear seemed as though it wanted to smash apart the heavens and earth. That immortal-foundation expert gritted his teeth and actually turned, transforming into a beam of light as he chose to flee.
However, he only saw that the long spear in the hands of the towering figure lengthening unceasingly, chasing after him. When the spear moved out in attack, even the ghosts and demons would wail in terror.
A light piercing sound rang out, the immortal-foundation expert was halted against his will. The long spear had directly pierced into his body, impaling him through the air.
"Immortal? So what of it? You can also die." Qin Wentian's voice once again swept out, rumbling the heavens and earth. With a burst of immortal light, that immortal expert directly exploded, transforming into dust that was dissipated along with the wind.
Immortals could also die.
That divine spear attack made even ghosts and demons wail in terror.
It could even slay immortals!
Before this, how arrogant and brazen that immortal was? He thought of himself as a supreme existence and regarded Qin Wentian as a speck of dust, easily wiped away with the effort of lifting a finger. In addition, he also said that he would leave Qin Wentian alive so as to search his soul and to rip out his memories. How domineering was his attitude then? He completely didn't have Qin Wentian in his eyes. In fact, even after the divine weapon blocked his attacks twice, he still believed that the final clash would be sufficient to kill Qin Wentian.
However, never in his wildest dreams would he have imagined that that last attack would actually be the harbinger of his death. Qin Wentian's spear directly nailed him into space, seizing his immortal path away, destroying his life.
A spear, slaying immortals!
Who said that immortals, being lofty existences, could disregard everything that are mortals? Who said that immortals, are able to humiliate those with a lower cultivation bases than them? Immortals couldn't be insulted nor sullied, but does that mean that they could do it to mortals?
Qin Wentian used the most overbearingly domineering method to prove otherwise. If you wanted to insult him you better have enough strength to back it up. If not, even if you are an immortal, he would still reap your life away!
