Chapter 888: Taking On A Master?
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Jun Mengchen smiled very happily. Two out of the three of them had accomplished the mission given by the Heavenly Talisman Realm. Right now, they already obtained the treasures given by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and when they went back, they would be able to obtain a reward from the Heavenly Talisman Realm as well. Such a joyous matter, how could he not be smiling widely?
Also, he already understood that his senior brother Qin had a former grudge with the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. This was why Dongsheng Ting and the Deepflame Immortal King kept making things difficult for Qin Wentian and even implicated himself and Zi Qingxuan as well. This actually made him even more excited, since they had forsaken Qin Wentian before, he couldn't wait to see Qin Wentian give them a taste of their own medicine.
Upon thinking of this, Jun Mengchen's smile grew even more radiant. He lifted his wine cup and drained it in a single gulp. Dongsheng Ting was still paying attention to him and upon seeing the radiant smile on Jun Mengchen's face, he silently nodded as his mood truly turned for the better.
Both Jun Mengchen and Qin Wentian had obtained the top two rankings. In this case, they should be satisfied already right? The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect will slowly educate them in the future.
"This immortal banquet concludes here and can be considered a perfect ending. Let me toast all the immortal king seniors, the participants as well as those who came to spectate." Dongsheng Ting lifted his cup and smiled.
"Come, let's drink up!" An immortal king laughed.
"However, one more step remains before this banquet is concluded. Let me first offer my congratulations in advance to your highness for sourcing out these three talents. Also, let me offer my congratulations to the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect for accepting three more supreme geniuses." Someone laughed uproariously as the various immortal kings smiled.
"Yes, we will have to offer our congratulations in advance then."
The people at the banquet drank their wine happily as though the matter of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor accepting these three participants as disciples was already fixed in stone.
It was because from their point of view, this immortal banquet provides: fame, treasures, and a status of authority in the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. To many, these were what they were cultivating for. These were the reasons why they came here. After all, who didn't want to have an immortal emperor as a master?
Especially given how vast the immortal realms are...how many geniuses were there? There were no lack of characters who exuded magnificence through the generations as well.. So what does the inconceivably vast immortal realms lack? Experts who were at the very peak.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, the emperor of the thirteen prefectures. This entire region was controlled and governed by him alone. How terrifying is his authority?
Taking the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor as a master would instantly cause one's status to skyrocket. To countless people, this can be described as ascending to the heavens in a single step. In the future, treasures, resources and the level of people you come in contact with would all change.
In the face of such glory, there was almost no one who would think about this word 'reject.' Such a notion would never appear in their minds.
Even for Dongsheng Ting, although he did think of this tiny possibility, he instantly squashed it after a moment, finding it ridiculous.
His royal father was the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, the governor of the entire thirteen prefectures!
"Little fellows, cherish this opportunity well." Right now, there were immortal kings who toasted Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen in congratulations.
"The young are wild and arrogant. These two little fellows are much more wilder than I was back when I was young. Maybe only characters with their personalities, are suited to be the disciples of his Majesty."
Almost everyone at the immortal banquet nodded their heads. Right now, many people were gathered at the table of Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen.
It felt as if the entire focus was now all congregated on the two of them.
Although Dongsheng Ting said that the ending of the immortal banquet was perfect, the immortal kings understood that the main event has yet to arrive. Only after his Majesty finished taking on the three participants as his disciples could the ending of this immortal banquet be considered perfect.
"Brother Qin." At this moment, someone called out to Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian turned his attention over only to see it was Zuyu from the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor. He instantly frowned as his countenance turned ice-cold.
However, Zuyu now no longer had that attitude from before. He respectfully raised his wine cup and smiled, "Brother Qin, for those unhappy things that happened before, I hereby apologize and will punish myself by drinking three cups in forfeit. I only hope brother Qin can forgive and forget."
Right now, the eyes of everyone were on Qin Wentian. It was already destined that he will become a personal disciple of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and would be a future Sage Child of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. When he matured, his authority was something the major powers of the Cloud Prefecture couldn't compare to. Given Qin Wentain's talent, if he was to receive the personal guidance of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and others, it would be difficult if he didn't want to get stronger.
Before this, Zuyu and Qin Wentian had an extremely intense clash. Because, he had never expected that Qin Wentian would be able to achieve his current achievements after the Deepflame Immortal King said what he said. However, Qin Wentian had actually managed to accomplish this and hence, it was only natural that Zuyu had no wish to become an enemy of a future Sage Child of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
The Battle Heavens Immortal Sect was unwilling as well, which was why they sent Zuyu to apologize.
"Scram!" Qin Wentian spat out. In just an instant, Zuyu turned pale. His smile was frozen there. Although he didn't manage to enter the top ten, he could still be considered someone famous. With his prideful heart and the hot-bloodedness of youth, he initiated an apology only to be met with the word 'scram.'
The countenances of experts from the Battle Heavens Immortal Manor also turned unsightly. It seems that Qin Wentian had no intentions to make peace.
When the other major powers of the Cloud Prefecture saw this scene, they also gave up their plan of sending people to apologize. They initially wanted to reconcile their relationship with Qin Wentian but evidently, they understood that it was impossible.
Zuyu coldly stared at Qin Wentian before turning around and leaving. He drank the wine in his cup before crushing the cup to vent his anger.
Qin Wentian didn't bother with Zuyu. To him, it was basically impossible for him to take the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor as a master. But naturally, even if he grew stronger in the future, he wouldn't intentionally return to the Driftsnow City to take revenge on those major powers. Although these people had once wanted to deal with him, it could be treated that their actions were a form of tempering for him. He wouldn't be so free to waste time to get revenge on them.
As for Zuyu, he touched Qin Wentian's reverse scale. At that time when Jun Mengchen was badly poisoned, Zuyu was by the side cursing venomously for Jun Mengchen's death. Did he really think, that with one apology, Qin Wentian would forget everything and start treating him like a brother? Doing this would only make Qin Wentian feel so disgusted that he felt like puking.
There were also some major powers from the Eastern Prefecture who came over to their table, toasting Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen. They naturally wanted to be acquainted with these two future Sage Child characters.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Sect was located precisely within the Eastern Prefecture. The status of Sage Child of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect was naturally extremely high to most people.
Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen didn't reject those who wanted to get close to them. They also didn't say anything and just listened with a smile while enjoying their wine.
At this moment, a beautiful silhouette walked towards Qin Wentian. Momentarily, the gazes of several experts were drawn over by her and not only that, in the eyes of experts from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, there were even hints of trepidation.
The person walking towards Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen was none other than Princess Glaze. Did she want to recruit them for the Evergreen Immortal Empire?
The Idlecloud Immortal King stood up in welcome. He then smiled, "The name of Princess Glaze spreads far and wide. Even I, Idlecloud, have heard of your name in the faraway Cloud Prefecture."
"Senior is too polite." Princess Glaze smiled. After all, the Idlecloud Immortal King was someone at the immortal king level. She naturally would show him respect.
"I merely came to toast the two of them for their success." Princess Glaze's eyes landed on Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen as she spoke. The information her royal father told her was of paramount importance. And there was a very high probability that one of these two would be the individual that would affect the fate of their Evergreen Immortal Empire. Hence, she came over personally.
"Mhm." The Idlecloud Immortal King nodded. After that, he turned to Qin Wentian and Jun Mengchen as he introduced, "Qin Wentian, Jun Mengchen, this lady is the daughter of the White Emperor. The Evergreen Immortal Emperor also treats her like his own daughter."
Qin Wentian's body violently shuddered for a moment. He stared at Princess Glaze as a dazzling light flashed through his eyes before standing up to show his respect.
This Princess Glaze that stood before him was actually from the Evergreen Immortal Empire!
Upon seeing Qin Wentian staring so directly at her, a strange expression appeared on Princess Glaze's face. No man had ever dared to look at her this way. She couldn't help but feel a trace of unhappiness.
"Are you acquainted with Qing`er?" At this moment, Qin Wentian's voice transmitted over, his words causing Princess Glaze to tremble. Instantly, her eyes gleamed with sharpness as she looked at Qin Wentian, as though she was waiting for him to continue with his words.
"Princess when you return, if you happen to see Qing`er can you help me tell her that I will definitely head there in the future to look for her." Qin Wentian continued. Dongsheng Ting couldn't help but frown, a trace of coldness flickered in his eyes when he noticed the interaction between the two of them.
"What is your relationship with Qing`er?" Princess Glaze stared at Qin Wentian.
"You will know soon." Qin Wentian replied. Princess Glaze furrowed her brows, this young man was as though he was intentionally keeping her in suspense.
However, if Qin Wentian really has a connection with Qing`er, there was no doubt that the person her royal father was looking for, would surely be him. He was the one that will affect the fate of their Evergreen Immortal Empire.
"I'll wait." Princess Glaze returned and didn't say anything more. Back at the immortal banquet, the atmosphere was still extremely lively.
And at this very moment, a flash of light appeared in the distance as a beam directly shot towards the banquet. At that moment, everyone in the immortal banquet stood up as they turned their gazes over.
A figure stood over there and the instant he appeared, everything in this world seemed to be centered around him.
"We pay our respects to your Majesty."
Several immortal kings instantly bowed, and as for the immortal-foundation experts and servants, all of them knelt on the ground in respect. This man was none other than the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, the living totem of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
"Father!" Dongsheng Ting excitedly called out as he relinquished the host seat.
"Everyone please be seated, there's no need to be so polite." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor didn't seem to like to put on airs. He then appeared right next to Dongsheng Ting's seat and glanced at Princess Glaze before smiling, "Ah, the daughter of White Emperor, truly you are someone blessed by the heavens."
"Senior praises me too much." Princess Glaze replied courteously. "Royal father would often bring up senior in our talks together."
"Mhm, when you return, remember to send my greetings to your father as well as that old fellow Evergreen." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor exuded an amicable aura, smiling to his juniors. After that, his eyes swept over and glanced at the people below. "Although I wasn't present earlier, I already know everything that happened. Those participants who managed to secure a seat here are all welcome to join my Eastern Sage Immortal Sect as core disciples."
"For the top three rankers, stand up and let me take a good look at you." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor smiled.
Gusu Tianqi, Jun Mengchen and Qin Wentian all stood up respectively.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor didn't have any looks of strangeness when he saw Qin Wentian. He didn't say anything as well. It was like this is the first time he was meeting Qin Wentian. He only smiled, "Once before I said, for those who can enter the top three ranks are all welcome to join my sect. The three of you have extraordinary talent and it's very remarkable that you can reach this step. Today, are you three willing to take me on as your master?"
"Junior agrees." Gusu Tianqi immediately replied. Although the elders of his clan were strong, none of them could be compared to the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. With such a fortune in front of his eyes, he naturally couldn't miss out on it.
"Mhm, what about the two of you?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor smiled and nodded before turning to Jun Mengchen and Qin Wentian.
The various immortal kings all smiled and glanced at the three of them, admiring their talent and fortune. They were soon to be his Majesty's personal disciples, they didn't understand why the immortal emperor was still asking such an obvious question.
"This Jun Mengchen's talent is simply overwhelming. His Majesty is sure to be fond of him." An immortal king laughed.
"Junior came here to take part in the immortal banquet only because I wished to temper myself. I have no intentions of taking on a master and can only let down the good intentions of senior." Jun Mengchen stated. Instantly, all the laughter in the atmosphere vanished, replaced by a heavy silence.
At this moment, even time seemed to have stopped.
However just at this very moment where time seems to have stopped, Qin Wentian's voice rang out breaking the silence. "Junior's aptitude is just too low, I don't have the fortune to become your Majesty's disciple."
