Chapter 863: Frost Queen Mo Wen
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The Supreme Mystic Immortal King instantly understood the thoughts of the Deepflame Immortal King. Qin Wentian has actually already offended the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor once and was forsaken by him. In that case, it was truly somewhat of a tall-order for Qin Wentian to enter the top three.
Right now, everyone only saw the Deepflame Immortal King turning his gaze onto Qin Wentian as he continued, "In the past, you've already missed this opportunity. Even if you knew your mistakes and want to start afresh, his Majesty might sit up and take notice of you but sadly, you are destined never to be within the top three."
"This has not ended yet, aren't your words a little too decisive?" Qin Wentian stared at the Deepflame Immortal King as he spoke.
A cold smile lighted the face of the Deepflame Immortal King. This brat was too naive. Could it be that he really thought that the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor didn't accept him as a disciple back then was really because he angered him? And now, he wanted to use an outstanding performance to persuade his Majesty to accept him?
How ridiculous! Qin Wentian's hopes were destined to be fruitless.
Naturally, it was impossible for the Deepflame Immortal King to tell Qin Wentian the truth, he would never do so. He merely left behind a string of low-sounding words before he left, "Some things are already destined, they are not changeable just by hard work."
The meaning behind his words was extremely significant.
"Some things, until the very end, you can never know the results." Qin Wentian similarly also replied. If the Deepflame Immortal King paid attention, he would also discover that there was a significant meaning within Qin Wentian's words. However, the Deepflame Immortal King naturally didn't bother to pay attention. He believed that Qin Wentian was someone who didn't know the immensity of the heavens and earth, he believed that was just an arrogant rebuttal, nothing more and nothing less.
However, did he really understand what Qin Wentian was saying?
Just like what the Deepflame Immortal King had said. Some things are already destined, they are not changeable just by hard work. From the surface, this might be mocking Qin Wentian's talent. But in fact, Qin Wentian understood that no matter how high his talent is, there was no way the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect would allow him to be one of the top three rankers.
However what about Qin Wentian's words?
Some things, until the very end, you can never know the results...
The Deepflame Immortal King took his wine cup and directly left, while chatting with the other immortal kings, laughing happily. It was as though the earlier humiliation by Qin Wentian wasn't able to affect the state of his heart. However, the Supreme Mystic Immortal King cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian as he sighed in his heart, feeling that this whole thing was such a pity. He initially wanted to take on Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen as disciples. Even if they were truly fortunate enough to become Sage Child characters, he could also have guided them.
But now... The Supreme Mystic Immortal King shook his head and didn't say anything else.
"How noisy. Nothing but a persistent bastard." Jun Mengchen stared at the back view of the Deepflame Immortal King with his fists clenched tightly. This Deepflame kept opposing them in all things, it was extremely irritating.
"Qin Wentian, I believe you will be able to do it." Gu Liufeng patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder as he spoke.
"Mhm. Although this time around you didn't manage to get into the top twenty, don't be discouraged by this." Qin Wentian replied. He still remembered back then when he first saw Gu Liufeng, how imposing was he.
"Don't worry, my state of heart isn't that weak. Maybe because my temperament has changed I'm now inferior to you and Hua Taixu. Back then in a particle world, I was one of the few geniuses that stood at the peak; but when I came to the immortal realms, so many people were able to suppress me, thus leading to the change in my beliefs. Maybe, I should learn from Hua Taixu, roaming the immortal realms to gain more experience to temper my state of heart." Gu Liufeng spoke in a low voice.
"Mhm, I believe in you." Qin Wentian smiled. There were truly too many geniuses in the immortal realms. The geniuses of particle worlds, when placed in perspective of the immortal realms, if they didn't continue to improve they truly couldn't be considered anything. After entering the immortal realms, you still need to continue advancing on your path, achieving transformation after transformation from the experiences you gained. The people here were the most outstanding elites of the thirteen prefectures. Which one of them wouldn't be geniuses at the peak when placed in a particle world?
"Next, the cultivation level of all the remaining participants is different. I wonder what methods would they use to choose the top ten. I think, maybe those higher level ascendants would have to suppress their cultivation levels to have a fair match against the lower level ones." Gu Liufeng spoke in a low voice. It was really tough to compete fairly given that the cultivation bases of the remaining participants are all different.
On the highest level, the immortal kings were all discussing the rules of the next competition.
They have to choose the top ten from these twenty participants, and the rules have to make things relatively fair for all participants. There were many kinds of combat methods they could use but the crucial thing was that Dongsheng Ting has to approve them. After all, he is the designated host of this event.
The immortal banquet was extremely lively. Those eliminated geniuses gradually accepted their fate and started to enjoy the banquet. Although they lost their opportunity, they were still core disciples of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. As long as they were willing to put in the effort, they could still have a dazzling future.
Many famous personnel in the thirteen prefectures were actually outstanding disciples from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. If one could cultivate till the immortal king level, they also would have a chance to govern a prefecture. Such an authority could said to be already heaven-reaching.
Although in this place, the position of a prefecture lord wasn't that dazzling and appeared to be somewhat normal. One must not forget that this place was the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, the hegemon of the thirteen prefectures! This banquet was organized for the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, and naturally, immortal kings wouldn't seem to be that impressive. Even characters like the Idlecloud Immortal King didn't stand out here but this doesn't mean that the authority they had was non-existence.
How vast was a prefecture? A single Cloud Prefecture already has eighty-one countries with a countless number of cities. The Idlecloud King was the prefecture lord of the Cloud Prefecture. Over there, his hand could cover the skies, summoning the wind and rain with his will alone.
Although right now, these participants were sitting together with the immortal kings, this didn't represent anything at all. They have to pass the numerous tests of this immortal banquet to prove their potential before they could be qualified to attend this immortal banquet. As for the future, it still had to depend on the participants themselves to see how far they can go.
As the people at the banquet chatted, time flowed on. Dongsheng Ting returned to his host seat as the various immortal kings also quieted down. Those on the lower level stared at Dongsheng Ting in silence and the solemn atmosphere now instantly gave them a feeling of imposingness.
Right now, Dongsheng Ting swept his gaze over everyone as he spoke. "Before this, I have discussed with Princess Glaze and some senior immortal kings about the rules of the next test. This test shall eliminate ten more participants to filter out the remaining ten but the participants who pass this test won't be ranked subjectively. As for those in the top ten positions, everyone would be given a reward once the immortal banquet ends. And naturally, for the top three rankers, their rewards would be exceedingly valuable. In order to be part of the top three rankers, you have to pass this test first."
"The rules are very simple, we will go according to the order of names called out earlier by Princess Glaze. The twenty participants will mount the platform and if they fight against people at the same cultivation level, there's no need for either to suppress their cultivation bases. But for fights between different-level ascendants, I will use a treasure to ensure that the cultivation bases of the two combatants are the same. For those who win their first battle, they are temporarily safe. And for those who lost a battle, they would still have a chance to challenge others after the first round of combat ended. Those who have two losses will be directly ousted from the top ten."
Dongsheng Ting slowly continued, "And one more point, for people who have already lost one fight, the others cannot choose him as an opponent. I will give those who have one loss an authority to initiate. This is to prevent two outstanding geniuses from picking on a single participant. Everyone, you should understand the rules already, right?"
The crowd nodded their heads. Dongsheng Ting had made things very clear.
"For the first match, Gusu Tianqi you are up." Dongsheng Ting swept his gaze over to the location where the people of the Eastern Prefecture were seated at.
Gusu Tianqi's silhouette flickered, directly appearing on the battle platform. A moment later, the other nineteen participants couldn't help but to feel a little nervous. If Gusu Tianqi choose to fight against them, the possibility of their defeat would be very great. If that's the case, they would only have one more chance remaining. If they lose two battles, they would be directly eliminated.
"Supreme Moon Prefecture, Mo Wen." Only to hear Gusu Tianqi emotionlessly speaking a name. And upon seeing him choosing Mo Wen, there were several people who felt extremely bewildered.
Mo Wen is the top ranker of the Supreme Moon Prefecture. Among the top twenty rankers, only Mo Wen and Zi Qingxuan were female, they were both the chosen daughters of heaven.
However, everyone instantly understood the reasoning behind why Gusu Tianqi picked Mo Wen. Maybe to him, it was the same no matter who he fought. Mo Wen was at the same cultivation level as him, and in that case, there's no need for either of them to suppress their cultivation level and can fight each other directly.
Gusu Tianqi hated troubles, it would naturally be best for things to be simpler.
Mo Wen's silhouette flickered, quickly appearing on the platform. She was clad in robes of icy blue. Her demeanor was extraordinary and her skin was fair like snow, completely untainted by dust.
"Mo Wen, will she be able to fight against Gusu Tianqi?" Jun Mengchen mumbled in a low voice, staring at the female before him. A hint of concern could be seen flickering in his eyes.
"It might be a little difficult but Mo Wen is no ordinary character. Even if Gusu Tianqi wanted to fight with her, he will have to show his true strength." Qin Wentian replied. The three of them watched as Mo Wen stood on the platform, as though she was the focus of their complete attention.
Because...Mo Wen was the same as them, she was also from the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
Within the top twenty, other than the three of them, there's still one more individual - Supreme Prefecture, Mo Wen.
Out of the top twenty spots, the disciples of the Heavenly Talisman Realm took four positions.
From the start till now, they have never gone up to greet each other. In fact, not even the slightest hint that they knew where each other were from could be picked up by others. They merely silently observed each other, knowing of each other's existences.
Mo Wen who was clad in icy blue robes was still extremely calm at this moment. Upon seeing a resplendent battle light radiating from Gusu Tianqi, the clear sounds of cracking could be heard around her as all of a sudden, a world of ice appeared in her surroundings as the temperature in the surroundings abruptly plunged.
"How cold." Even sitting far away from the platform, the spectators could still feel the chill exuding from Mo Wen. What was even more terrifying was that right now, the black hair of Mo Wen transformed into strands of ice that were as sharp as swords, floating behind her. Her entire person seemed to have transformed, and currently that ice beauty from earlier was emanating a phantasmal feeling, resembling a frost queen.
Gusu Tianqi's attack blasted out, bringing with it a resplendent light as blinding as the sun itself. However, when that attack arrived in front of Mo Wen, the frost in this world of ice was so cold that even the sun would be frozen solid. Clear cracking sounds rang out as the fist imprint thrown out by Gusu Tianqi completely froze in mid air. One could very well imagine how terrifyingly cold the surrounding temperature was.
An ice lance shot out, breaking apart the frozen fist imprint. That terrifying battle might within that imprint was easily dispersed.
"This Mo Wen also has an unique physique, it's the extremely rare innate Frost King Physique!" An immortal king mumbled. But then again, if Gusu Tianqi wasn't incomparably confident, he would definitely never have chosen Mo Wen for his first battle!
