Chapter 789: Words That Tremble The Heart
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian was now on the arrest list by the Cloud Towers. Several cities of the Jiangling Country already had orders for his arrest. And given that the Driftsnow City was one of the three main cities of Jiangling Country, there would naturally be many who knew of the appearance of Qin Wentian.
The anger from the Jiang Clan towered up into the clouds. Numerous figures stood up instantly, and one among them spoke, "Everyone, let's go and kill him. But before that, we will search his memories to see what secret the Driftsnow Master left behind."
"I agree. Kill him, this brat is actually a criminal on the arrest list of the Jiangling Country. He onced kill a genius of the Jiang Clan and hence even if we join forces, nobody would gossip about it. In addition, since this order of arrest was issued by Tower Lord Ji on behalf of the Jiangling King Pei Tianyuan, it wouldn't be inappropriate if we all act together to deal with him."
Pei Tianyuan and Ji Kong laughed coldly in their hearts. Even at this junction, these wily old foxes still wanted to implicate them.
Pei Tianyuan and Ji Kong initially thought that the character the Jiang Clan wanted to catch was nothing more than an ordinary third-level ascendant, hence they didn't mind providing a little help. But they didn't expect that this 'small-time character' would actually create such huge waves of emotions, changing the way they looked at him.
But in fact, both sides had already incurred enmity, and considering the arrest orders. They could not not step out to take some action against Qin Wentian.
"Brat, you can only blame that your fate is unlucky." Pei Tianyuan's eyes penetrated through space, staring in the direction of the Nine Immortality Bells. Evidently, the Jiangling King Pei Tianyuan was already prepared to kill Qin Wentian, severing all future roots of trouble.
"Let's go." Even before the banquet ended, people already soared into the air, speeding towards the location of the Nine Immortality Bells.
Other than them, in the location of the Nine Immortality Bells. The spectators were all startled when they saw the image of Qin Wentian's true appearance appear in the air. After that, they noticed an expert from a major power staring at Qin Wentian with his expression turning ice cold, "So he is the criminal that the Jiangling Country wanted to arrest, Qin Wentian. He killed someone in the Worryfree City some time ago and had actually fled to the Driftsnow City now. How audacious."
"Criminal?" The gazes of the spectators stiffened. After which many suddenly understood. No wonder the image in the air looked so familiar. So it turned out that it was recorded in the arrest lists published by the Cloud Towers. This miracle-creator was actually a criminal? His original name was Qin Wentian and he had killed someone from the Jiang Clan before. So it turns out that his arrogance was a personality that was deeply carved in his bones.
"What a demon-level character. I heard that the Jiang Clan wanted to captured him because he killed Jiang Kuang in the face of many immortal-foundation experts previously and escaped unscathed. How long has that been? It's only a short period of time and now he is already at the Driftsnow City, causing an even greater commotion." Someone sighed in admiration, feeling that Qin Wentian was actually somewhat impressive.
At this moment, at the center of where the Nine Immortality Bells are situated at, Qin Wentian's eyes flashed with sharpness. His long hair fluttered in the wind and an instant, his appearance returned to normal, matching that of the image in the air.
Qin Wentian who reverted back to his original appearance was immersed in boundless runic lights, appearing even more extraordinary than ever. The loftiness in his eyes were as though it was indicating that Qin Wentian was a descendant of some divinity.
"How handsome." Someone praised.
"This demeanor, he's so much more handsome than the image projection. He definitely must be from an extraordinary background." Many people were attracted by Qin Wentian's demeanor. Even Pei Yu's body trembled lightly. Qin Wentian who returned to his true appearance wasn't only much more handsome than before. He was much younger as well. Back then when the orders of arrest were issued, she already felt unjust on behalf of him. Clearly it was those from the Jiang Clan at fault, Qin Wentian had no choice but to save his friend and killed Jiang Kuang under those circumstances
"To think that brother Tianwen was actually Qin Wentian." Cheron mumbled. He didn't mind that he was kept in the dark. After all, it was impossible for Qin Wentian to tell him that he was a target for arrest. Hence, it was understandable why Qin Wentian hid his identity.
"That's right, I'm Qin Wentian. The same Qin Wentian who killed the trash Jiang Kuang of the Jiang Clan." Qin Wentian inclined his head and spoke in a straightforward tone. He wasn't bothered that his identity was exposed at all.
And at this moment, whistling sounds rang out as several experts arrived. The Jiangling King Pei Tianyuan and Tower Lord of the Cloud Towers Ji Kong, were both here as well.
They peered downwards at Qin Wentian, with cold expressions. This was especially so for those of the Jiang Clan, killing intent could be perceptibly felt gushing forth from them.
"Qin Wentian, are you aware of your crime?" An expert from Jiang Clan coldly spoke.
Qin Wentian indifferently glanced at him, "People of the Jiang Clan, have you not thrown enough face? You actually still dare to stand here and speak to me with arrogance?"
"Impudent!" That expert evidently didn't expect that even now, Qin Wentian was still so brazen. He pointed his finger at Qin Wentian, "You killed Jiang Kuang of my Jiang Clan, there's even an order of arrest in the entire Jiangling Country for you. Your crime is unpardonable, you must be killed."
"Ridiculous, and lamentable." Qin Wentian icily regarded those above the air. "Back then in the Worryfree City, your Jiang Clan used your authority to bully the commoners. The useless City Lord even abducted females off the street to fawn on all of you. One among those abducted was my sister, I stepped up and demanded for her return. Yet, your Jiang Clan was reluctant to release her. That was the only reason I acted, and as a result, even when in front of so many experts of your Jiang Clan, I killed the tyrannical Jiang Kuang. You are not going to deny this right? What all of you should do is to properly reflect on your own actions yet you even want to pin a crime on me? What crime was committed?"
Qin Wentian pointed his finger at that expert and continued, "My only crime was that I'm not as strong as you all. Just like that day during the Jiangling King Banquet. The geniuses of the various powers ridiculed and humiliated me with words, yet I'm not even allowed to respond? Honestly, it's only you bunch of sanctimonious bastards using the influence of your sect to bully others, suppressing those weaker than you. If you met someone from a stronger background, most likely you would act like a dog, obediently wagging your tail. How truly lamentable."
"IMPUDENT!" That expert of Jiang Clan roared. The faces of all the experts present were filled with anger. Qin Wentian's words didn't merely ridicule the Jiang Clan, it included all of them.
This brat was truly too impudent. He had to die.
"Impudent?" Qin Wentian coldly laughed, "All of you said that I'm guilty of a crime, but who can pronounce me guilty? Ridiculous to the extreme."
"I can. I hereby pronounce you guilty of the crime." At this moment, the Jiangling King Pei Tianyuan spoke, his words causing the hearts of the spectators to tremble. As the king of this country, his words naturally had weight behind them.
"My King..." Pei Yu turned pale, was the king going to act against her friend Qin Wentian?
"You?" Qin Wentian shifted his gaze over as he smiled. "I killed a person of the Jiang Clan who had a questionable character, yet you pronounce me guilty? The Jiang Clan rides on their authority and influence, behaved in an overbearing tyrannical manner, abducting females off the streets. You mean they are not guilty? How could someone of your character become the king of a country? You are merely the lackey for these major powers, do you think you are qualified to pronounce me guilty? Who the fuck do you think you are?"
Qin Wentian's voice caused the hearts of everyone to pound violently. He even dared to curse the Jiangling King and said that he was a lackey? How audacious.
However to Qin Wentian, he couldn't be bothered at all. From the moment Pei Tianyuan issued the arrest orders, the two of them already had an enmity between them. If later on Pei Tianyuan stopped opposing him, he naturally wouldn't bear grudges. But, Pei Tianyuan had always acted on behalf of the major powers to help suppress him. Including the time at the banquet set earlier, the words spoken by Pei Tianyuan had already clearly indicated his attitude and stance on this.
From this, one could see that Pei Tianyuan was long prepared to kill him. If not, based on Pei Tianyuan's character who always preferred neutrality on the surface at least, he wouldn't have opened his mouth and spoke up against him at this crucial moment.
And since this was the case, what words are there still that Qin Wentian didn't dare to speak?
Pei Tianyuan pronounced him guilty? What qualifications does he have to do that?
For those who want to kill him, how could he be bothered with their feelings?
"Do you understand what you are saying?" Despite being humiliated and cursed at, Pei Tianyuan was still in control of his anger. From this, one could see how terrifying his state of heart was. His lips curled and a gleam of sharpness flickered in his eyes, indicating although he might appear calm, he was harboring a killing intent in his heart.
"Naturally I do. But as for all of you, do you understand what you are doing?"
Qin Wentian's gaze swept over Pei Tianyuan, exuding an unmatched loftiness and cold arrogance. "Back then, I could already kill Jiang Kuang in the face of so many people of the Jiang Clan. Now, I forged an immortal-ranked weapon, killed an immortal-foundation expert. and even unraveled the secret within the Nine Immortality Bells yet you guys dared to provoke and surround me here? Have you thought clearly of the consequences behind your actions?"
As the sound of Qin Wentian's voice faded, the people in the surrounding gulped as their hearts trembled involuntarily.
Qin Wentian's words seemed to indicate that he had an extremely terrifying background supporting him.
In addition, the things he accomplished, as well as the talent he exhibited, did prove that such a possibility was highly likely.
Could it be that the power Qin Wentian was from, was so strong to such an extent that he didn't even fear peak-tier powers of the Cloud Prefecture?
"Don't listen to his bewitching words. Back then in the Worryfree City, he had already used this tactic in an attempt to bluff. However, no other experts from his sect appeared. Also, he hid his appearance and came sneakily to the Driftsnow City. If he was truly from a supreme power, why would he need to do this?" Experts from the Jiang Clan glared at Qin Wentian. "You are truly intelligent, to think that you could weave such a believable lie."
The gazes of everyone turned to Qin Wentian, yet they only saw a cold smile painted on his face when he heard the words of the Jiang Clan. Apparently, he wasn't bothered by the words at all.
"Retard." Qin Wentian spat out in a mocking tone. "But it's not surprising. Ant-like powers such as yours, how could any of you know how truly supreme powers nurture their disciples? An example, just like Jiang Yan of your Jiang Clan, if he had no capabilities on his own and would die if he ventured alone outwards, would it be better if he just stayed home forever in protection? Such trash are nothing more than false geniuses. Their combat prowess is unbelievably weak, unable to stand up to a single strike. If it wasn't for all of you interfering, such false geniuses as these, I can kill as many as I wanted to effortlessly. If you all are still bent on acting this way, consider the consequences yourselves carefully."
As the sound of his voice faded, the hearts of the people here trembled more violently. That's right, if they leave aside the topic of Jiang Kuang dying and just speak of the events now...If the immortal-foundation experts didn't interfere and left it to the junior generations to fight it among themselves, Qin Wentian's strength enabled him to kill as many geniuses as he wanted to. They didn't even have the strength to resist.
If one compares this way, the difference was immediately evident. The possibility of Qin Wentian being a disciple of a supreme power who came out alone to temper himself was extremely high.
Seeing the expressions on the faces of these people changing, Qin Wentian couldn't help but laugh coldly in his heart. Even if this was useless, he had to scare these people to death making it so that even if they acted against him, worry and trepidation would be heavy in their hearts!
Anyway, he wasn't lying. A power on the tier of the Heavenly Talisman Realm...was it something these people could imagine?
