Chapter 792: A Storm Descends
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
This was not only doomsday for Jiang Yan, the countless geniuses from the major powers were all bound by the endless chains, forced apart from the experts protecting them. After which, the chains brought all of them before Qin Wentian.
Nion from the Seven Sword Sect, Shu Luyao from the Myriad Sage Academy, Zurius from the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor, Han Dongjiang from the Ninepeak Immortal Court and Pei Xiao from the Jiangling King Manor.
All these people were tightly chained up and had no power to resist. Their eyes were filled with fear as they stared at the towering figure before them, their expressions ashen. Only despair was in their hearts.
They were all extraordinary characters of the younger generations in the Cloud Prefecture. At the banquet, they despised Qin Wentian. Yet today, their lives were all controlled by him.
"You dare to kill us all?" Nion struggled futilely against the binding chains, her face was still painted with a trace of cold arrogance but other then that, fear was evident as well. The fear when facing against death.
"Qin Wentian, if you kill us there would no longer be a place for you here in the entire Cloud Prefecture. You will die for sure." Shu Luyao coldly threatened.
"You...you will definitely not be able to walk out of the Jiangling Country." Pei Xiao's expression was wretched.
Qin Wentian quietly stared at these people as he listened to their threats. That towering figure exuded a sense of loftiness but there was no fluctuations to his gaze. The only thing they saw was that his lips abruptly curled into a smile of mockery.
"Even now, you all want to use your so-called pride to mask the fear in your hearts?" Qin Wentian's voice rang out, his eyes flickering with pity. "A bunch of pitiful people self proclaiming themselves as geniuses, enjoying a false sense of superiority. Wanting my life just because I wasn't qualified to contend against you all? Now that a death grudge has already formed between us, do you think I would want to reconcile our relationship and spare you bunch of trashes? What a joke."
As the sound of his voice faded, the fear in the hearts of these people further intensified as they turned pale white.
Qin Wentian's words naturally were understood by them. Since a death grudge was already formed, there was no way the major powers would be able to let him go untouched. In fact, killing them or not killing them had no effect on the decision made. There was no difference. And under such a circumstance, how could Qin Wentian spare them?
"What do you want? I can give you anything." Nion suddenly spoke, her beautiful eyes flashing with mesmerizing charm. This kind of transformation even stunned Qin Wentian. After which, he turned his mocking gaze over to her, "How lamentable, just with your standard of beauty? Nothing but a leather bag, you are not worthy."
Nion's expressions turned incredibly unsightly. After which, numerous chains shot out aiming to kill. Qin Wentian's voice rang out once more, "I've already given you all enough chances, but again and again all of you proved to be recalcitrant and kept wanting my life. In that case, just go to hell then."
With the pronouncement of their doom, the sounds of piercing echoed out. These geniuses of the major powers were directly killed on the spot.
These geniuses were all here because they wanted to decipher and unravel the secret within the Nine Immortality Bells. But never in their wildest imaginations did they think that this place would be their burial grounds.
In the air, those immortal-foundation experts were still frenziedly defending against the boundless chains. For those weaker immortals, there were already a few who died. The number of chains hung suspended across the heavens and earth, slaughtering all who were in their paths. The weaponized city below seemed capable of generating unlimited chains to be used for attack, it was simply too terrifying.
"You must be courting death." At this moment, a terrifying voice rang out. Qin Wentian only saw a silhouette killing his way through the chains and appearing before him. This was none other than the Jiangling King, Pei Tianyuan.
Pei Tianyuan's eyes gleamed with sharpness and an intense killing intent.
In the Driftsnow City of his Jiangling Country, a third-level ascendant actually dared to be so brazen going so far even as to kill a member of his clan, Pei Xiao.
Qin Wentian's countenance had no change despite Pei Tianyuan's appearance. Pei Tianyuan's strength was truly remarkable, the countless number of chains were unable to stop his advance the slightest. But so what of it? Qin Wentian now was already very familiar with the weaponized city. The ancient city created and refined by the Driftsnow Master and Immortal Jade simply had too many methods of attacks.
"Puchiu!" The gigantic wings behind him flapped as Qin Wentian directly sliced through the air, moving towards Pei Tianyuan, initiating an attack with such force that the space where he passed by seemed to break apart from the pressure.
Pei Tianyuan dodged to the side with a speed akin to lightning. After which, he used his fastest speed and dashed towards Qin Wentian. As long as Qin Wentian died here, the weaponized city would no longer launch attacks.
"Within this ancient city, I am God." Qin Wentian spoke in arrogance. After which, Pei Tianyuan only saw light flashing as Qin Wentian's body tunneled into the earth, vanishing from sight completely. Over there, a terrifying whirlpool was formed. Pei Tianyuan stood in the air but he didn't dare to continue his pursuit. He didn't dare to guaranteed that he would be able to retreat in one piece if he barged into the whirlpool.
"BASTARD!" Pei Tianyuan roared in rage. He stomped his foot downwards, causing an intense might to blast down. Rumbling sounds echoed but the city remained unharmed. This ancient city was clearly an immortal-ranked divine weapon, it was extremely durable and had insanely high defense.
At this moment, the mouth of the whirlpool suddenly manifested a terrifying surge of destructive energy so powerful that it even caused Pei Tianyuan's expression to stiffen as he gazed downwards with trepidation.
A terrifying scene appeared. There seemed to be a golden web of lightning spreading itself upwards while brewing and nurturing a heaven-destroying might within. Even Pei Tianyuan felt his heart trembling.
"Retreat!" Pei Tianyuan roared, soaring into the air. After which the web of lightning shuddered before erupting outwards, extending with blinding speed. Wherever it passed by, all life was ripped apart. Only death remained.
All of the experts present rapidly soared upwards in the air. There was an immortal-foundation expert whose speed was slightly slower and was ensnared by the web. He only felt his entire body growing numb and a moment later, copious amounts of golden destructive energy rushed into his body unceasingly. His body trembled madly and an instant later, no signs of life could be felt from him. He had already died.
The golden web of lightning continued expanding with unbelievable speed, killing quite a few immortal-foundation experts. The remaining people stood at an extremely high location in the air, feeling their hearts shaking at this sight. This city, could they even break through its defenses?
It was basically impossible. In fact, they didn't even know what kinds of other devastating attacks this city had in its repertoire. Maybe what was revealed now was only the tip of the iceberg.
Qin Wentian's figure appeared once more, standing above the Driftsnow City. His icy eyes were filled with loftiness as he stared at the experts in the air above him. There was completely no trace of fear in his eyes.
"Am I, very good to bully?" Qin Wentian coldly asked. This battle had caused the major powers to suffer grievous losses.
They initially believed that a mere third-level ascendant would be easily killed. But never did they expect that there would be such a miserable ending for them.
"Qin Wentian, even if you can borrow the power of the weaponized city to defend against us for a period of time, do you really intend to hide in there forever?" Pei Tianyuan's killing intent towered into the skies as he stared below.
"There's no need for you to worry about that. If you wish to kill me, just come. But if you don't dare to, just scram as far from here as possible. From now on, I am the City Lord of the Driftsnow City." Qin Wentian coldly spoke. As the sound of his voice faded, several points of the city shone with light, the energy radiating transformed into arrows of lightning that pierced upwards into the sky.
"CAREFUL!" Pei Tianyuan's expression stiffened. After which he stomped in the air as a terrifying gigantic mountain manifested, crushing downwards. The arrows penetrated into the mountain but their momentum was eventually halted completely.
The other experts employed their own methods to defend against the onslaught of arrows. The trepidation in their eyes grew even more intense as they stared at the ancient city below.
This weaponized city was simply too powerful. If Qin Wentian chose to hide within, they basically wouldn't be able to kill him. In fact, even nearing the city was impossible, the death rate was too high. They might be killed by the weaponized city that was able to launch out a myriad number of attacking methods due to a moment of carelessness.
"We must definitely acquire this weaponized city." The experts of the Jiang Clan were not only filled with intense hatred and killing intent for Qin Wentian, their greed for this weaponized city was extreme as well. The more they looked at the overwhelming might of this place, the more they wanted it.
"My King, what should we do now?" An expert from the Jiang Clan transmitted his voice to Pei Tianyuan.
"The news that the weaponized city has been revealed would soon circulate. At that time, the ones who wish to deal with him wouldn't be us alone. The life of that brat is doomed for sure. However, it's difficult to say to who the weaponized city would eventually belong to." Pei Tianyuan transmitted his voice, just a single sentence went straight to the point.
"We humbly request the Jiangling King to aid us in this." The Jiang Clan expert spoke. After all the Driftsnow City was the Jiangling King's territory and Pei Tianyuan himself has quite a powerful background too. If he was willing to aid them, the probability of their Jiang Clan obtaining this city would be boosted by a huge degree.
"How can I help you? Nobody can predict what sort of commotions this would cause in the future." Pei Tianyuan replied.
"As long as you mobilize the Jiangling Troops to guard this area and work together with experts of my Jiang Clan to obtain this city, we will definitely succeed. Once the matter is successful, our Jiang Clan won't forget the help you've rendered." That expert from the Jiang Clan spoke.
"Since this is the case, let me properly consider this suggestion first. But no matter what you have to immediately inform the experts of your Jiang Clan to gather here as soon as possible lest there are some unforseen circumstances." Pei Tianyuan stated.
"Okay, I will use the immortal sense I left behind to communicate with them at this instant. Our Jiang Clan will send a large group of our experts over."
"Mhm," Pei Tianyuan nodded lightly. He glanced at the other experts only to see all of them absorbed in thoughts of their own. This scene made Pei Tianyuan's eyes flash with sharpness.
He lowered his head once more, looking towards Qin Wentian. The talent of this brat was truly extraordinary and he's a rare genius. But sadly, he acquired something that shouldn't belong to him. As a result, his death was already destined.
Right now, a huge storm of commotion had descended, sweeping across the Jiangling Country as well as the Cloud Prefecture.
The immortal-foundation experts of each power must have already informed their sects and clans regarding this news with the immortal sense they left behind. Most probably, a huge number of experts from each major power were already gathering and would soon arrive!
