Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Dongsheng Ting sat atop an azure dragon while Princess Glaze sat upon a blue luan. The two of them exuded an imposing magnificence and resembled an immortal couple.
This scene radiated a heavy rush of impact.
"Dongsheng Ting's azure dragon mount is something his big brother Dongsheng Yin subdued from the Qinghai Dragon Pool and gifted to him as a present for breaking into the immortal-foundation realm. The relationship between them is extremely deep and there are rumors saying Dongsheng Yin had to fight against this azure dragon for a total of eighteen days before it submitted to him." The crowd whispered to each other. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor reigned supreme here for countless years and every single one of his sons were extraordinary individuals.
Dongsheng Ting, the youngest son, also had already stepped into the immortal-foundation realm. He has many older siblings who were exceedingly famous characters as well. However, they didn't stay within the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and were off roaming the immortal realms, taking the four corners of the world as their home.
The gigantic azure dragon exuded a tyrannical air. When its eyes swept past, the loftiness within was as though it was only normal for everyone to grovel before it. To think such a noble azure dragon was willing to submit to Dongsheng Yin.
Naturally, the blue luan Princess Glaze was riding on also gave people an intense rush of impact. Not only was the blue luan exuding a sense of imposingness, it also exuded a sense of immense beauty that matched perfectly with the demeanor of Princess Glaze.
"Is that the legendary daughter of Emperor White? She actually appeared here today." In the direction where the experts of the Cloud Prefecture gathered, the Idlecloud Immortal King mumbled. The mysterious and powerful White Emperor is rumored to be the brother of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor. He possessed the ability to foretell events and can pry into heavenly fate. It was he who aided the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to ascend the throne and there were people who said that the White Emperor already knew the fate of that empire and that was the reason why he agreed to aid the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.
"The daughter of the White Emperor, Princess Glaze." Qin Wentian mumbled. Right now, the people at the banquet were all discussing about her. Naturally, he could hear what they were saying, he also heard the names of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, and also Qing`er. This daughter of the White Emperor seems to be Qing`er's cousin but as to how good the relationship between them are, nobody knew. After all, Qing`er has just returned to the immortal realms.
But no matter what, upon seeing Princess Glaze, Qin Wentian felt a step closer to Qing`er.
Dongsheng Ting and Princess Glaze finally descended, heading to the host seats of the banquet. The azure dragon and blue luan hovered in the sky, adding to the atmosphere. When enjoying the banquet, one could also see the azure dragon and blue luan flying in the sky. Most probably, only in the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would one be able to witness such a magnificent scene.
At this moment, it was unknown how many people were at the banquet. Everyone was seated at their arranged seats.
On the highest level, Dongsheng Ting, some supreme experts of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, the war generals like Deepflame Immortal King as well as valued guests with extraordinary statuses like Princess Glaze, Undying Immortal King, and the Scarce Moon Immortal King could all be seen. The location of their seats depended on their status and strength, and could be clearly seen. The space between each individual was quite large and there were many beautiful female servants rotating around, going up to serve each individual with the utmost care whenever they are needed.
Everyone on the top level had an extraordinary status and the vast majority of these people were immortal kings who are tyrannically strong.
And below them, were the experts from the major powers of the thirteen prefectures. Immortal king characters sat more in front and powerful immortal-foundation experts were seated behind the head of their respective power. The prefecture lords and the 160 participants was seated together equally on this level.
Next, were the ordinary immortal-foundation experts as well as the subordinates from the major powers, and servants from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
At this moment, the sound of a dragon roar rent the air. Dongsheng Ting stood up as everyone at the banquet stood up to show their respect as well.
Dongsheng Ting then raised his wine cup to everyone as he spoke with a smile, "Today, I am here to represent my father to host this banquet. Firstly, let me extend his thanks to the various seniors who turned up today. I shall drain this cup of wine first as a mark of my respect."
As he finished speaking, Dongsheng Ting downed the cup of wine. Since he sat at the host seat, it was clear that he would be the one to host this banquet and represent the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor.
Evidently, after Dongsheng Ting stepped into the immortal-foundation realm, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor was gradually pushing him to the front, wanting him to have more interactions with the experts of the thirteen prefectures, appearing in grand occasions. At the same time, this was also a test of tempering towards one's state of heart. In front of so many powerful experts, not many people could control the atmosphere well. After being exposed to this for prolonged periods of time, Dongsheng Ting's state of heart would grow firmer as his self-confidence would also build up, eventually constituting a more and more powerful aura.
Everyone toasted him and drained a cup of wine. An expert laughed, "Today is a grand occasion organized by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect where his Majesty would accept three disciples. We are all here to partake in the liveliness and hope your highness wouldn't blame us for being so presumptuous."
"Everyone, your presence brings light to our humble abode. My royal father would surely feel gratified in his heart." Dongsheng Ting nodded and smiled to the expert who spoke. After which, he raised another toast to the people from the thirteen prefectures and spoke, "This is an immortal banquet organized once every hundred years. Although this isn't the only disciple recruitment event the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect has, we attach a very high importance to this event. My royal father will accept the top three rankers as disciples to indicate how much he values geniuses of the thirteen prefectures. I would like to thank all the participants here for participating. Let this toast be to the geniuses of the thirteen prefectures!"
"Many thanks to your highness!" The prefecture lords and immortal kings of the thirteen prefectures replied politely, draining their cups once more. The participants all had bright light gleaming in their eyes when they stared at Dongsheng Ting. Dongsheng Ting was what a true genius would be. How dazzling is he? The moment he showed up, he was riding on an azure dragon as his mount. Although they were the heaven chosen of the thirteen prefectures, their auras were clearly weaker by an unknown amount of times when compared to Dongsheng Ting.
This time around, they had to grab hold of this opportunity to receive recognition from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect's elders and try their best to enter the top three. Naturally, if they could become Sage Child characters and take the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor as their master, that would be for the best. However, it was simply too difficult to obtain one of the top three rankings.
"Haha, enough. Everyone, please be seated and let the banquet be started." Dongsheng Ting smiled and sat down. The guests sat down as well and started to chat leisurely and enjoy the delicacies prepared. Although the geniuses from the thirteen prefectures were famous individuals, in such a setting, they could only act with restraint, and couldn't truly be at ease. After all there were simply too many supreme characters, the vast majority of experts here were people whose name can shake an entire region, their accomplishments were sufficient for the participants to look up to in admiration.
"Senior brother and senior sister, this immortal banquet is so awesome and there are so many delicacies prepared. I feel positively stuffed and extremely comfortable. Back when I was in my particle world, although there are many exotic delicacies as well, I've never enjoyed such a high-grade banquet." Jun Mengchen stuffed himself as he spoke. He couldn't be bothered with those major characters, they had nothing to do with him. He was an extremely carefree man.
Qin Wentian initially was still lost in his thoughts but upon seeing Jun Mengchen's manner, he couldn't help but to laugh as he too, started enjoying the delicacies. Indeed, as the wine and food went down his gullet, a clear and cool stream could be felt circulating throughout his entire body, giving a very comfortable feeling. It felt like all the energy expended during the battles earlier was recovering unceasingly. Even his wounds were healing more rapidly than usual.
Dongsheng Ting sat on his seat. He turned his gaze onto Princess Glaze who sat beside him as he smiled in a warm and elegant manner, "Princess Glaze, what are you looking at."
At this moment, Princess Glaze was surveying the crowd as an unfathomable light could be seen flickering in her eyes.
"I'm taking a look at the strength level of the heaven chosen from the thirteen prefectures." Princess Glaze casually replied.
Dongsheng Ting smiled and stated again, "After this, the 160 participants from the thirteen prefectures will enter a competition to select the three most outstanding individuals. At that time, Princess Glaze will be able to see clearly the strength of our geniuses. However, forgive me for my straightforwardness; Princess Glaze travelled from so far away just to attend this immortal banquet hosted by my royal father. Is there something else the matter?"
Before this, when he received the request card, he was extremely excited and commanded his subordinates that this immortal banquet had to be perfect and exceed the quality of all previous banquets. In the end, although Qing`er wasn't the princess who came, Princess Glaze's presence also made him extremely surprised and happy. Being able to be acquainted with the daughter of the mysterious White Emperor naturally was a good thing. However, Dongsheng Ting also understood that it was almost impossible for Princess Glaze to come here to attend the banquet because she had too much time on her hands and for no other reason.
"You wish to know the real reason?" Princess Glaze's beautiful eyes turned to Dongsheng Ting. That soulful light within actually caused Dongsheng Ting to feel a stirring in his heart. However, he maintained his calm and smiled, "If it isn't convenient, Princess Glaze doesn't need to reply. I'm only asking casually."
"Nothing much. My royal father simply asked me to pay a visit here." Princess Glaze replied and shifted her gaze away. However, her words caused Dongsheng Ting's expression to freeze.
The White Emperor asked his daughter to pay a visit here? Is there some behind-the-scenes details or secrets?
However, since Princess Glaze didn't elaborate, he naturally didn't press her further.
Princess Glaze seemed to radiate a divine light. Although it was claimed that she was able to pry into heavenly secrets and foretell the future by the external world, she knew how difficult it was to do such a thing. It was only because of the unique constellation she condensed which enable her to have a different type of energy compared to the other stellar martial cultivators which also allowed her to see things ordinary people can't see. However, she knew she was still not upto the mark at her current level. Her royal father's attainment in this area far surpassed her.
The White Emperor told her that in the location where the Eastern Sage Thirteen Prefectures were located at, there was a dazzling star which recently appeared that actually had a connection with the destiny of their Evergreen Immortal Empire. This indicated that this star had the ability to influence the fate of their empire. Also, this star was strikingly similar to the star that represented the Evergreen Immortal Emperor himself, which appeared long ago when they began their quest to fight for the Evergreen Immortal Empire. But right now since so many things were still unclear, her royal father only revealed this information to her. Even the Evergreen Immortal Emperor was unaware.
And just so coincidentally with the appearance of the new star, the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect was actually organizing their once-per-hundred year immortal banquet. There was an obvious link to the appearance of the new star, hence the White Emperor sent her over to see if she can pick up more information.
Dongsheng Ting followed Princess Glaze's gaze as he stared at the participants below. An instant later, his expression stiffened as an extremely cold light flashed through his eyes. Even his aura fluctuated as he glared straight at a participant.
Princess Glaze was astonished by his behavior. After a moment, her eyes landed on a young man who was currently chatting with a smile and enjoying the banquet's delicacies. This young man seemed to be in glowing spirits, joking with those who sat beside him. But an instant later, it was as though that young man could sense their gazes on him. He turned about and his eyes landed on Dongsheng Ting. Under the bewildered gaze of Princess Glaze, she could see an unmasked sharpness gleaming in the eyes of this young man who was merely at the Celestial Phenomenon level, matching Dongsheng Ting's glare with one of his own, showing absolutely no fear at all.
What sort of character was Dongsheng Ting? Yet, this young man didn't seem to be bothered by that at all. In addition, Dongsheng Ting appeared to be very affected by the presence of this man. This made her extremely surprised and she couldn't help but to wonder what the identity of this ascendant was.
"You actually came here?!" Dongsheng Ting suddenly yelled, his words causing an expression of puzzlement to flash on the faces of the crowd. Everyone halted what they were doing and stared in the direction where he was staring. Who was it that could cause Dongsheng Ting to be so bothered?
