Chapter 821: Mini Banquet
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Gu Liufeng's countenance was painted by unhappiness. He was the one who brought Qin Wentian here and they actually encountered such an issue.
"These friends of mine are here to participate in the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's banquet. If your Inn is planning to do such a thing, wouldn't it be a little inappropriate?" Gu Liufeng stared at the receptionist and asked.
"Everyone, this is the arrangement made by a Sage Child. Please look for some other place to reside." At this moment, a waiter designated to lead that group who just arrived spoke up.
Upon hearing his words, that receptionist could only smile awkwardly. He turned to Qin Wentian, "Everyone, why don't you just give the Sage Child some face?"
Gu Liufeng furrowed his brows, he naturally understood what the words 'Sage Child' of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect meant.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor was termed as the Eastern Sage Majesty. The word 'Sage' denotes an extraordinary intent and within the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, Sage Children are all referring to the nominated disciples of the Eastern Sage Majesty. They all had extraordinary statuses and were characters which the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect heavily nurtured. They would even have a chance to become a personal disciple of the Immortal Emperor himself in the future if their achievements were high enough.
There were currently many Sage Children within the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and all of them were demon-level characters of different cultivation realms.
And this group of people who just arrived were actually requested by a Sage Child to come here. Since this inn was owned by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, the Inn naturally had to obey.
"Sage Child? Yet he treats the guests of the thirteen prefectures like this?" Gu Liufeng unhappily stated. They were participants from the other prefectures and at the very least, they could be considered the guests of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
"Why must you be so serious? Since this is an order given by a Sage Child, everyone please just give the Sage Child some face and change your residence. In the future if there's an opportunity, I can introduce you to get acquainted with him. Why must you be so persistent?" That waiter spoke in a rude tone.
"What a joke. Why must we be acquainted with him?" Jun Mengchen laughed coldly. That person stared at the medallion pinned on Jun Mengchen's robes but his countenance had no fluctuations to it.
"Ranked second in the Cloud Prefecture, no wonder you are so arrogant. However, this place is the Emperor City and not the Cloud Prefecture. Do you know who these people, that the Sage Child wanted me to arrange lodging for, are?"
These words were also extremely rude. Qin Wentian stayed silent from the start till the end, matching gazes with the man in the lead which the waiter pointed to.
He was actually acquainted with this man and had met him before when the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor went to the Royal Sacred Region to recruit a disciple. This person also had outstanding talent and was one of the individuals that persisted till the end.
His name was Blackpeak. But in the end, he didn't enter the tutelage of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor but rather, he entered under the tutelage of the Deepflame Immortal King, a war general under the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor instead.
Blackpeak naturally also recognized Qin Wentian. Back then Qin Wentian was the one who surpassed all of them and was narrowly accepted by the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor as a disciple. But sadly this fellow didn't know how to appreciate kindness and actually refused the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's favor when the Emperor wanted his current master Deepflame to arrange training for him, and giving him a period of freedom every thousand years. At the very end, Qin Wentian was forsaken by the Immortal Emperor.
Now, Qin Wentian actually managed to arrive here at this place from the particle world he came from but the number on the medallion pinned to his robes was a mere rank 27. This made Blackpeak laughed coldly in his heart. As expected of geniuses from a particle world. Despite how outstanding he was previously, that was only for a period of time. Since Qin Wentian missed the opportunity then, he had already became mediocre, ranking 27th in the Cloud Prefecture. How regretful.
"This is the personal disciple of a war general under the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, the Deepflame Immortal King. His name is Blackpeak." That waiter spoke in arrogance, his words causing the exquisite features of Jun Mengchen to exude sharpness. Jun Mengchen then stood up even straighter and puffed out his chest. If someone dared to be arrogant in front of him, he would simply be even more arrogant than that person. And in any case, these people were obviously wishing to force them out of a residence which was already promised to them. It was simply ridiculous that they were talking to him and his companions in such a manner now.
"I don't give a fuck who the hell you are. We were at this place first and so according to rules, this belongs to us. If you want to snatch it away, just settle this in a fight then. I heard that in the Emperor City casual combat is forbidden, but I wonder if you people from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect are also bound by this restriction?" Jun Mengchen spoke, releasing his aura. He was completely like a lord that was totally unafraid of anything in this world.
Although he had exquisite-looking features, he was the king of his world. The one and only king there.
Blackpeak's eyes shifted away from Qin Wentian as though he had no idea who Qin Wentian was. It felt like the Qin Wentian now was no longer worthy of his attention. He turned his gaze back to Jun Mengchen as he spoke in a sinister voice, "Are you sure you guys want to stay in this inn?"
Jun Mengchen initially wanted to speak only to hear Qin Wentian beating him to it as Qin Wentian replied, "That's right."
The gazes of everyone flickered as they turned to Qin Wentian only to hear him continuing indifferently, "The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect organized a banquet for selected participants from all the thirteen prefectures. Now that we are here as guests, we are actually bullied by a bunch of people from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect? How laughable is this?"
"When did I bully you guys?" That waiter's countenance turned cold. Yet he only saw Blackpeak waving his hand as he turned his attention back to Qin Wentian. "Back then, it was precisely this personality of yours that destroyed your chance to soar up into the heavens, causing you to fall into mediocrity. Now, you are the same as ever, not knowing when to retreat. I admire your courage, but although you are guests, you would do well to remember that this place is the Emperor City. If we meet each other again during combat, you best remember to be careful."
After speaking, Blackpeak turned and walked away. He flicked his sleeves, "Let's change to another place, why do we need to lower our statuses to argue with them?"
"You have no common sense." That waiter coldly glanced at Qin Wentian before leaving with Blackpeak and the others.
"Too arrogant." Jun Mengchen's battle intent gushed forth in palpable waves. He stared at the departing backs of those people as he stated, "They better not let me meet them in combat."
The receptionist was extremely awkward. He cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian and the rest before speaking, "You guys go on ahead then. I will bid my farewell first."
He departed instantly after speaking, causing Jun Mengchen to curse out loud. Yet, Gu Liufeng stared at Qin Wentian in surprise. He was puzzled that Qin Wentian was actually acquainted with Blackpeak.
"The Deepflame Immortal King's personality is extremely baleful and he conquered several regions for the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. His disciple Blackpeak has the same personality as him and is extremely brazen but his strength is the real deal." Gu Liufeng commented. All of them walked towards the courtyards but their initial good mood was already disrupted by what happened earlier. They respectively went into one of their three courtyards and rested.
Time flowed by and this region got more and more lively. The geniuses from the other remaining prefectures all continuously arrived one after another. The number of geniuses were so many that just anyone picked up from the crowd had a very high possibility to be an extraordinary genius. Many residents of the Emperor City also came to this region where the participants were all at, wanting to know when the banquet would officially start.
Today, a startling piece of news spread throughout this region. An extraordinary character of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, Sage Child Ye Zixuan had invited the top three rankers of all the prefectures to the largest and most luxurious restaurant, the Eastern Immortal Inn, for a mini banquet.
When the news circulated out, countless numbers of experts headed over to the Eastern Immortal Inn.
What sort of character was Ye Zixuan? He was a Sage Child and it was rumored that he just stepped into the immortal-foundation realm recently, ascending to immortality. In addition, the number of years he cultivated was only for a 102. From this, it could be seen how high his talent was and he was someone who had successfully crossed the barrier to immortality that had blocked countless others.
Also for those he invited were actually the heaven chosens of all the prefectures that were currently gathered here. It was said that there would even be some heaven chosen of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and personal disciples of immortal kings attending this mini banquet, giving rise to the large magnitude of this commotion.
The Eastern Immortal Inn has a total of nine levels and countless experts already gathered in its surroundings. They wanted to take an advance look at these famous people because after all, they would be competitors with these supreme geniuses in the near future.
"He's here, Sage Child Ye Zixuan has arrived." At this moment, there were people staring in the skies as they witnessed Ye Zixuan and his entourage directly landing on the top of the Eastern Immortal Inn.
"There are also some of those top rankers of the thirteen prefectures that have already arrived." At this moment, several others appeared in the air, exuding an aura of magnificence.
"No. 1 from the Qian Prefecture, no. 3 from the Li Prefecture, no. 2 from the Qian Prefecture..." Supreme-level geniuses descended from the air one by one, causing the eyes of everyone to brighten.
"Haha! You guys attending this mini banquet I, Ye, had organized, is truly honoring me." Ye Zixuan's voice rang out with laughter. The various geniuses clasped their hands and politely replied, "Sage Child is too polite."
Ye Zixuan could be considered their senior. Although he was 102 years in age, he looked extremely young and is also extremely good looking.
"Brother Blackpeak has also arrived," At this moment Ye Zixuan inclined his head and saw a silhouette in black descending downwards. The gazes of those in the surroundings shifted to the newcomer, it was none other than the personal disciple of the Deepflame Immortal King, Blackpeak.
"Bzz!" At this moment, an overwhelming aura permeated the atmosphere as a lanky figure appeared as well, exuding an unexcelled aura. The medallion on his robes stated the word 'Cloud,' as well as the number '1.' He was none other than Gu Zhantian.
This man was the top ranker of the Cloud Prefecture.
The number of people gathered for the mini banquet got increasingly greater and whenever a tyrannical figure appeared, it would certainly cause a commotion.
The top ranker of the Li Prefecture, Cang Ao also arrived. He cuts an imposing figure with a domineering aura and a headful of red hair which fluttered in the wind.
"Ye Qianchen also arrived." The top ranker of the Qian Prefecture appeared, causing the attention of the crowd to be focused on him instantly. Both Ye Qianchen and Cang Ao were characters thought to have the highest chance of becoming the top three in this selection.
"Would Gusu Tianqi also come here today?" At this moment, the crowd couldn't help but to speculate silently. Such a supreme character, nobody knew if he would give face to the Sage Child and attend this banquet.
At the top of the Eastern Immortal Inn, the banquet was already fully prepared. Ye Zixuan and those he invited chatted leisurely. But as for Gusu Tianqi, he hadn't appeared yet. It seemed that out of all the invitees, he was the only one who didn't turn up.
"Wait there's something wrong. Where's the second ranker of the Cloud Prefecture? It seems that he didn't turn up as well?" Somebody in the crowd suddenly realized that in the seats designated for the Cloud Prefecture, there were only two characters there; Gu Zhantian and Mu Yun.
"He's here, the second ranker of the Cloud Prefecture is actually standing below with the rest of us!" A few silhouettes suddenly appeared below the Inn and one of them had a cloud medallion pinned on his robes that stated, Name: Jun Mengchen, rank: 2!
"Sage Child, the second ranker of the Cloud Prefecture has arrived." On the top of the Inn, a subordinate of Ye Zixuan reported.
"I didn't invite him." At this moment, Ye Zixuan's voice drifted out, his words causing the countless gazes that were currently fixed on Jun Mengchen to flashed with bewilderment.
The second ranker of the Cloud Prefecture Jun Mengchen actually didn't receive the invitation by the Sage Child Ye Zixuan? Also, by saying this out loud in public, doesn't that mean that the Sage Child didn't intend to give any face to Jun Mengchen and wanted to cause him embarrassment, to be in an awkward position?
Jun Mengchen lifted his head and stared at the top of the Eastern Immortal Inn. He had also heard of the banquet invitation by Ye Zixuan and indeed, Ye Zixuan didn't issue any invitation to him. But even so, he still came here but his purpose wasn't to attend the banquet and was rather that he wanted to look at the faces of his opponents. He will definitely accomplish the mission given by the Heavenly Talisman Realm and that clearly meant that sooner or later, he would trample upon these characters that were invited here by the Sage Child for the banquet today!
