Chapter 801: Fellow Sect Members
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
After the Saberlord brought Qin Wentian and Mu Yan away, several experts respectively appeared. They all stepped within the Driftsnow City and stared at its surroundings.
"Such a powerful city yet after so many years, no one was able to unravel its secret." The hearts of many of the experts sighed. If it was them who unraveled the secret and gained the recognition of the Driftsnow Master, this city would have been theirs. Sadly, only with Qin Wentian's supreme talent was he able to connect with immortality through smithing a weapon and eventually, obtained this weaponized city.
"Pei Yu," At this moment, someone spoke. Pei Yu was still quietly sitting down within the city. She lifted her head and turned to the person who spoke. It was none other than an expert from the King's Manor.
However now, even Pei Tianyuan the Jiangling King had already died. But Pei Yu longed for the enemy, and even helped the Driftsnow Master.
"Do you understand your crime?" That expert coldly spoke, his voice filled with killing intent.
Pei Yu calmly stared up at the skies, at the ever drifting snowflakes as she spoke, "Since I didn't choose to leave this place, I'm already prepared to give my life away."
As the sound of her voice faded, Pei Yu laid down on the ground, staring at the drifting snow. A beautiful smile flickered in her eyes as she closed them, exuding a feeling of harmony and contentment. She had long tossed the fear of death out of her mind. She didn't mind sacrificing everything, immersing into a story of her own. And in this story, the only characters were the Driftsnow Master, and her alone.
"You..." The killing intent gleamed in that expert's eyes but he only heard those in the surrounding saying, "Just forget it."
"Hmph." That person coldly snorted, but he didn't act in the end.
This piece of sky was still raining down snow, but the ancient city no longer gleamed with light. Is the Driftsnow Master's soul still within the Nine Immortality Bells?
When would that young man who had left, return to take back this city that belonged to him?
And as for those major powers who many of their members had died, would their sects and clans dare to take revenge on the young man the Sabrelord of Death brought away?
Snow continued flowing, all the questions were as though they were buried in this endless snow. Nobody knew the answers, only time would be able to tell.
Three days later, in the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
Within the Heavenly Talisman Palace, Qin Wentian sat cross-legged in the air, comprehending the countless runic inscriptions that hung suspended in the air. He was trying to formulate new innate techniques. He lifted his palms and slammed out with them numerous times, every time his palms blasted out, the type of force within was different but the power was undoubtable.
Three months ago, in the battle within the Driftsnow City, he had to borrow power from external sources before he had the ability to slay an immortal. Although that wasn't considered his own strength and was from the Driftsnow City, it had actually granted him numerous benefits. He sensed for himself first-hand on how to trigger law energy. He who had transformed into a giant then, every blow he unleashed was filled with immortal energy. That had granted him invaluable insight.
Naturally, Qin Wentian understood that cultivation was the accumulation of effort garnered by a step by step process. Only with his own strength improving, would his combat prowess climb as well. Ascending to immortality in a single step was possible only when he is in the weaponized city, but after leaving there, the only surest source of guarantee, was none other than his own strength.
"Time to go for a walk." Qin Wentian stood up and stepped out of the Heavenly Talisman Palace. He glanced at the terrifying statue of the Realmlord as he involuntarily thought of the Driftsnow Master. How regretful, he could only sigh silently in his heart. The magnificence of the Driftsnow Master, he wondered if it would be possible to allow the Driftsnow Master to live again in this world.
"Are you done with your cultivation?" At this moment, a voice drifted over. Qin Wentian exited the palace and came before a river. The Saberlord of Death was standing there, continuously brandishing his saber, slashing apart the waves again and again. He didn't infuse any strength within his strikes and was merely contemplating the way of the saber.
Behind every expert, there was always an unseeable amount of hard work. Who could have thought that the powerful immortal king, Saberlord of Death, would use such a back-to-basics method to comprehend his saber.
Naturally, everyone had different methods of cultivation. The Saberlord would do this naturally meant that he had his own logic.
"Mhm, I stabilized my foundation and I can faintly sense that I've stepped into the peak of the third-level of Celestial Phenomenon. There's no meaning if I continued to stay within." Qin Wentian stated.
"In the past, senior Bai Wuya brought you over and other than the Heavenly Talisman Palace, did he bring you around?" The Saberlord asked.
"No. After exiting the palace back then, I directly left the Heavenly Talisman Realm." Qin Wentian replied.
"That's fine. This time I will bring you around to the combat region of the Heavenly Talisman Realm. You can temper your combat prowess within." The Saberlord spoke. After that, he halted his saber movements and brought Qin Wentian away.
Not long after, they appeared before an extremely tall palace. This palace was so tall that its top seemed to touch the sky and was incomparably large, it was unknown how vast the area within it was.
Other than them, there were others here as well. Two females, but since they could appear within here, it was evident that these are members of the Heavenly Talisman Realm as well.
One of the two females had a disposition that would overwhelm others, but there was a perpetual frosty look on her countenance. As for the other female, she was exceedingly young around twenty years of age and was very beautiful. She had a pair of phoenix eyes and gave off the feeling of bursting with life, radiating health and vigor. She wore tight-fitting clothes that accentuated her exquisite figure, easily capable of causing temptation in the hearts of men.
"Is this a junior you invited into the sect?" That older female stared at the Saberlord of Death as she asked.
Only immortal kings had the qualifications to issue invitations. Apparently, this older female was an immortal king as well and the younger one was someone she had invited in. Violet-gold astral souls were the first criteria, it goes without speaking that everyone who could get invited were all outstanding geniuses.
"Nope," The Saberlord shook his head, "I've never issued an invitation before. However, this young man is truly extraordinary. If it was I who had met him earlier, I would have similarly invited him into our sect."
"Oh is that so? You would regard him so highly?" The beautiful older woman's brows twitched, exuding a sense of sharpness.
"For those who are outstanding, they would naturally be regarded highly." The Saberlord smiled. "Fairy Xu, I wonder how the junior sister you invited would fare?"
"My judgement is naturally better than yours." The beautiful woman seemed to be at loggerheads with the Saberlord of Death. Her tone wasn't very friendly at all. She then glanced at Qin Wentian and spoke, "There are many geniuses within the Heavenly Talisman Realm. This person being able to encounter Zi Qingxuan by chance when on the way to the combat region could already be considered that his luck isn't bad. Just as well, we can compare the two of them.
The eyes of the Saberlord gleamed with sharpness. He then turned to Qin Wentian, "Brat, someone is looking down on you. This Fairy Xu is your senior sister Xu but she thinks you can't be compared to this little junior sister whom she invited."
"Haha don't try to sow discord." Fairy Xu glanced at the Saberlord before turning her attention to Qin Wentian, "Since you've already joined the sect, you are also my junior brother. However, Zi Qingxuan's talent is truly extraordinary and her bloodline is unique as well. Being able to enter the combat region together with her could be considered a fortunate matter, there's no need for any comparision between you both. Just look at different geniuses and they might prove to be a benefit to your own cultivation."
"Did you hear that? Your senior sister Xu says just looking at junior sister Zi Qingxuan's talent would surely benefit your cultivation. You certainly must learn from junior sister Zi." The Saberlord apparently wanted to see the world in chaos. He turned to Fairy Xu, "Oh ya, when did she enter? Between them, we must also know who first became a disciple of our sect."
"Zi Qingxuan has joined the Heavenly Talisman Realm for a duration of five months." Fairy Xu stated.
"Then she ought to call Qin Wentian senior brother. Hahaha." The Saberlord laughed. Zi Qingxuan's phoenix eyes glanced at Qin Wentian before shifting away, choosing not to linger there.
"Okay, let them enter." The Saberlord of Death spoke.
"Hold on, there's one more junior brother joining." Fairy Xu spoke, causing the expressions on the Saberlord's face to stiffen. "What? One more junior at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm?"
"How rare. For Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants, unless they are truly talented, they would never be issued an invitation." The Saberlord murmured, as though he was also speaking to Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian naturally understood this point. First and foremost, Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants had to have a violet-gold astral soul. This criteria already narrowed the scope down to one in a hundred million.
"They are here."
The sound of the wind whistling could be heard as two figures appeared. One among them was naturally the immortal king who issued the invitation. And for the other one, he was extremely young, looking just barely in his twenties and had very exquisite looks as well as a clean and neat appearance.
"Senior sister Xu, senior sister Qingxuan!" That young man called out. After which, he turned his gaze onto Saberlord and Qin Wentian. "Greetings to the two senior brothers!"
"Saberlord, this is Jun Mengchen, junior brother Jun." That immortal king introduced.
"This is Qin Wentian, junior brother Qin." Saberlord also made the introductions.
Qin Wentian nodded in response. This was the first time he met so many sect members. The criteria to join the Heavenly Talisman Sect was extremely strict, but since it had existed for such a long time, and if all members from the various locations of the immortal realms were to gather together, the Heavenly Talisman Realm would definitely become a force to be reckoned with.
"Okay, you guys can enter." The immortal king who just arrived spoke. The three of them nodded as they stepped into the combat region of the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
After entering, the Saberlord and Fairy Xu turned to the newly arrived immortal king as they asked. "Senior, you would actually also issue an invitation? Who exactly is that young man?"
"I encountered him while roaming the particle worlds. His talent is extraordinary for sure and his disposition is unparalleled. When I met him, his talent awed me and I couldn't help but to issue an invitation to him." That immortal king replied.
"A person from a particle world yet he managed to move senior so much?" Fairy Xu was a little bewildered.
"He is the King of a particle world." That immortal king indifferently replied, his lips curling upwards in a smile as though he was thinking of the time he met Jun Mengchen. Back then, despite how powerful he was, he was still stunned by the young man's talent.
When that young man soared into the skies, his entire particle world would lie prostrate in respect. If it wasn't him who saw that personally, it was impossible to imagine that that exquisite young man would have such prestige.
"How about you guys?" That immortal king asked.
"Zi Qingxuan is an orphan. However, the background of her parents must most definitely be unusual. Her bloodline is extremely unique and she has an innate supreme physique. Her combat prowess can only be described as terrifying." Fairy Xu stated. After that, the two of them turned to the Saberlord of Death.
The Saberlord casually waved his hand and smiled, "I met that young man inside a city within the Thirteen Prefectures of Eastern Sage. He triggered the will of an ancient immortal, connecting with immortality through smithing a weapon, acquiring a weaponized city. Not only that, with a mere cultivation base at the third level of Celestial Phenomenon, he fought alone against the joint forces of the Cloud Prefecture and even managed to kill numerous immortal-foundation experts."
"No wonder you would issue an invitation for him to join us." That immortal king stated.
"He was not issued an invitation by me. The one who did so was Bai Wuya." The Saberlord of Death laughed, his words causing both of their gazes to freeze as gleams of sharpness flickered in their eyes!
