Chapter 841: Domineering Counter Attack
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Sage Devil Gorge, at the location Qin Wentian was at, his aura surged, blasting outwards akin to thunderous explosions.
There were participants who glanced up at the skies. Upon seeing Qin Wentian's 100 meter physique exuding towering battle might, in addition to so many experts pursuing him, they couldn't help but feel their hearts shaking. By now, they naturally understood the different tiers of Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's disciples by the color of their robes.
Among those pursuing Qin Wentian, the ones closest to him were wearing scarlet golden robes that attracted a great deal of attention. They were even more conspicuous than the golden robes worn by core disciples. They all seemed to be elite disciples who would usually never act against the participants based on ordinary circumstances. These people shouldn't be participating in the hunt by right; yet now, all of them were ganging up to kill a single person.
At this moment, the crowd only saw the 100 meters giant halting his steps abruptly. The instant his steps halted, there seemed to be a terrifying gust of wind that shook the clouds. The elite disciples behind him couldn't help but to stop their steps as well when they realized it.
That 100 meter giant suddenly turned and stepped forth, his aura crackling like lightning as thunderous explosive sounds resounded through the air. The countenances of those elite disciples all drastically changed as they chose to retreat instead of advancing as though they were filled with terror towards that giant. This caused the crowd to have a puzzled looking expression on their faces. Who was it that was killing who?
"A bunch of trash, you actually still have the face to tell me I should have fear and reverence in my heart towards you guys?"
His voice reverberated through heaven and earth, Qin Wentian's expression was filled with sarcasm. This wasn't just his mocking towards elite disciples but rather, it was towards the entire disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
A variety of disciples were pursuing after him but when he stopped and turned back, nobody actually dared to step forth. And when he moved towards them, the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect actually retreated? Was there anything more ridiculous in this world?
"How brazen." The crowd below felt their hearts trembling at the sight of the scene in the air. Who was this man exactly? He viewed the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect as trash and ridiculed them in public. And as expected, the faces of the disciples all turned ashen. In the Sage Devil Gorge, their mission was originally to hunt down participants. But now that such a scene occurred, it was truly embarrassing.
From afar, more and more disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect congregated as they finally caught up. Qin Wentian's mouth curled into a smile of disdain, staring at Xia Hou and Blackpeak who were standing in the air faraway. "Let me try to persuade you guys not to waste effort scheming to kill me. With a bunch of trashy disciples like them flaunting their strength and superiority; but in actual fact, are weak as fuck. I can't guarantee their lives if they continue with their attempts."
After speaking, Qin Wentian directly turned and continued his way once more, his words causing those disciples beside him to exchange glances but they had nothing to say in response.
Qin Wentian's speed was extremely fast, it was basically impossible for ordinary disciples to catch up with him. Only a few elite disciples were quick enough to follow after him. But once combat presented itself, they didn't even dare to do anything. In fact, it was just like what Qin Wentian had said, they wouldn't be able to guarantee their lives if Qin Wentian counter attacked. What irony.
"How dare he humiliate us all with such words. Continue to chase after, spare no expense to kill him!" Xia Hou icily commanded. The various disciples regrouped and continued their pursuit. At the same time, Xia Hou shot out another summon ray as even more disciples joined in the fray enroute and were all chasing after the pinpoint of light that represented Qin Wentian. However, those who appeared before him were killed by a single smack, they were not on the same level.
The pursuit continued. After some time, Zi Qingxuan who was in a certain location noticed Qin Wentian's figure flying through the air. Her eyes instantly turned sharp and glanced in the direction behind Qin Wentian, instantly understanding what was happening.
Her silhouette flickered, a pair of divine falcon wings appeared behind her back as she soared into the air with rapid speed, flying parallel to Qin Wentian, moving in the same direction as him.
Qin Wentian naturally also noticed Zi Qingxuan, soaring towards him with extreme speed.
"How can I help you?" Zi Qingxuan stated when she drew nearer. She didn't ask the reason, there was no need to ask why. Since she has already recognized Qin Wentian's strength, she was on the same side as him. Right now, since there were people pursuing him, she would naturally stand by his side.
"Let's play a game of hunt with them." A cold light flickered in Qin Wentian's eyes as he stared at Zi Qingxuan next to him.
At this moment, a voice rang out.
"Those who don't wish to die better not butt their noses in this business. Or don't blame us for killing you as well." Those behind Qin Wentian upon seeing Zi Qingxuan flying up to him, couldn't help but to threaten. Zi Qingxuan continued flying next to Qin Wentian, she didn't bother replying.
"Qingxuan, let's kill the one who spoke." Qin Wentian stated. His immense body directly halted, Zi Qingxuan's wings flapped as she too, turned around and shot ahead like a bolt of lightning.
Qin Wentian took great strides through the air, directly speeding towards the disciple who just spoke. Although there was quite some distance between the two of them, he unhesitatingly blasted out a palm strike. This palm strike instantly manifested from the void, directly smashing downwards. That disciple hurriedly slammed out with both his palms, launching an attack with the hope of destroying Qin Wentian's palm imprint.
But at the same moment, Zi Qingxuan had also arrived. The glow from her divine falcon constellation was incomparably resplendent. Her eyes turned incomparably sharp and with a gesture, countless falcons manifested shooting outwards, ripping this space apart. That expert stepped back, wanting to delay because there was already another elite disciple rushing forth to aid him. However, a thunderous boom echoed out, Qin Wentian slammed out a number of Grand Nihility Palm Imprints that burst out from the void, attacking several disciples, preventing them from sending the target aid.
Qin Wentian's own body sped towards the elite disciple Zi Qingxuan was attacking. Everything happened in an instant, so quick that it was unbelievable.
Their target was currently enveloped by Zi Qingxuan's manifested falcon and was in a defensive position. At this moment, Qin Wentian rushed out as a blood-colored long spear formed from astral energy materialized in his hand. This spear shone resplendently with battle light, as though the might from his battle art had infused into the spear.
In an instant, the spear expanded to over tens of meters, causing the space to tremble. The might it exuded towered into the skies. The face of their target was painted by terror wanting nothing more than to flee, but Zi Qingxuan's persistent attacks made it impossible for him to do so.
Finally, the expanding spear penetrated over, filling the air with a trail of blood-colored light, directly piercing towards their target's body. There was simply no way to block it, that elite disciple could only roar in defiance and helplessness. As the spear pierced into him, a deafening sound rang out as the body of that elite disciple shattered into pieces, pulverized by the might of the spear.
In the span of a few short breaths, an elite disciple was slain. Xia Hou and Blackpeak could only watch on but they couldn't interfere personally.
Qin Wentian and Zi Qingxuan worked together seamlessly as a team, as though they could read each other's minds. They stared at the other elite disciple who rushed over earlier but was blocked by Qin Wentian's attack. Qin Wentian delayed him for so long precisely because he wanted to deal with them one by one, making it easier for them to act, causing the other disciples to feel despair.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's disciples wanted to gang up, surround and hunt him down? Then, they better prepared to pay the price.
"Bzz!" The Dreamworld Constellation directly transformed into a domain that enveloped his target. After which, another heaven-shaking spear strike pierced out. This spear strike seemed to contain law energy, with a stifling pressure boring down on the atmosphere. How powerful was Qin Wentian now after he activated the second level of the battle art? This spear strike of his was akin to the spear strike of a war divinity.
Zi Qingxuan flanked to the target's back in tacit understanding, blocking his path of retreat. Earlier so many experts joined forces and attacked Qin Wentian, but they could do nothing to him. Right now, Qin Wentian merely joined forces with Zi Qingxuan and in just an instant, that elite disciple was obliterated by the power of a single spear strike.
Not even ten breaths have passed, two elite disciples were already slain consecutively.
After that, Qin Wentian and Zi Qingxuan directly soared away. When the other disciples planned to continue to pursue them, Xia Hou finally gave the command to stop.
At this moment, Xia Hou could only have a heavy expression on his face as he watched Qin Wentian soar away. He knew that if this continued, the casualties would be even more grievous. Whoever caught up to Qin Wentian first would surely die; but if everyone slowed down to wait for the rest before attacking him, he would have already fled far away with his speed, rendering this meaningless.
He understood that Qin Wentian's 'fleeing' was nothing more than using a carrot to bait the donkey to follow him.
"Do we end things just like that?" Blackpeak's face turned dark. He knew Xia Hou wanted to give it up. But after expending so much effort and they still failed to claim Qin Wentian's life, it was an extraordinary humiliation.
"What else can I do?" Xia Hou glared at Blackpeak, his eyes extremely sharp as though he had forgotten Blackpeak's identity.
Losing elite disciples one after another, this was all because of Blackpeak's request. However, the consequences would all have to be borne by him, the supervisor of this selection test alone. If this continued on, he didn't even dare imagine what his punishment would be.
Although the cultivation bases of those elite disciples were inferior to him, it was only a matter of time before they all grew as strong as him. The status they had was that of equals, all of them were disciples of the elite tier. As for their deaths, their masters would surely question and investigate, and if it was found out that it was because of his command which lead to the deaths of all these elite disciples, the punishment would definitely be extremely severe.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would never blame Qin Wentian. Even if they wanted to protect their disciples, what excuse would they have to pin the blame on a heaven chosen who resisted the joint attacks of all their disciples? In addition, given how dazzling Qin Wentian was, why wouldn't the sect directly recruit him as an elite disciple? He had already proven how outstanding he was in combat.
"That man, would he try anything funny?" Xia Hou stared in the direction of the vanished back of Qin Wentian as he mumbled. Before this, they had completely enraged Qin Wentian and he had also said that he would definitely make them pay a terrible price for their actions. Those blood-colored demonic pupils had truly caused a sliver of fear to manifest in his heart.
Naturally, this thing wouldn't be concluded so quickly.
Qin Wentian had originally only wanted to retreat. Since this was a hunting exercise for the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, as well as the selection test for the participants. He would act in accordance to the rules, killing those who sought to hunt him. But the matters earlier had thoroughly infuriated him. As a supervisor of this test, Xia Hou actually used such a ridiculous reason - having an arrogant temperament - to summon the disciples to gang up and kill him.
Since this is the case, from that moment onwards, Qin Wentian would no longer play by the rules. He would no longer play the role of the prey waiting for the hunter, but would become the hunter directly instead.
The disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect treated them as prey, and they could only passively wait to be hunted down. Since this is the case, under this brutal rule he shall launch a counterattack that belongs to him alone.
Qin Wentian soared through the air, his eyes roaming all directions. At this moment, he discovered a fifth-level ascendant currently fighting against a disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. Not only that, that opponent was a core disciple and he already possessed an advantage, forcing the fifth-level ascendant participant backwards.
At this moment, Qin Wentian directly descended downwards. The two people in combat felt a towering pressure gushing over as they separated from close combat. Staring in the air, they only saw a gigantic palm imprint blotting out the skies as it smashed down with a thunderous boom. The core disciple was directly pulverized.
The participant had a look of extreme shock on his face. He stared at Qin Wentian as his heart trembled.
"Since the disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect want to hunt us, why don't we group together and counter-hunt them back? Kill all the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's disciples if we encounter them." Qin Wentian spoke.
"Okay, I will follow you." That person stepped out, following Qin Wentian on his expedition!
