Chapter 956: Overwhelming Strike
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Strands of protective immortal sense existed on all the bodies of the geniuses who stepped into the City of Ancient Emperors, and these images of immortal emperors were allowed to manifest here. However, they weren't allowed to stay for too long, nor were they allowed to break the rules of this place.
The instant the protective strand of immortal sense of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor appeared, his emperor might swept over this space. His silhouette floated in the air as Que Tianyi respectfully called out, "Master!"
"Master." Gusu Tianqi also greeted.
"We pay our respects to the immortal emperor." The members of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect all had expressions of reverence on their faces. The battle instantly stopped as the eyes of people from the Qin Sect stared at the silhouette of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor that appeared.
The gaze of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor turned to Nanfeng Yunxi as a powerful wave of might enveloped her. However, he only saw Nanfeng Yunxi as cold as arrogant as before, staring in disdain at Que Tianyi. She then spoke, "Senior Eastern Sage. This personal disciple of yours is so weak but he's so arrogant? Now that he's defeated, he purposely activated your immortal sense. Such a personal disciple...doesn't senior feel that he has thrown all of your face away?"
"You..." Que Tianyi pointed at Nanfeng Yunxi.
"My sect disciples just entered the City of Ancient Emperors, and if there's anywhere they offended you, why must you act so ruthlessly?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor indifferently replied.
"Senior, why don't you ask your disciple what he has done? After entering the City of Ancient Emperors, the disciples of your sect insulted and humiliated the people of my Qin Sect. After which, he even dared to summon the sect leader of our Qin Sect to meet him, and injure the members of our Qin Sect? However when in true combat, he can't even withstand a single strike. Senior's imposing prestige is completely thrown away by these disciples of your sect." Nanfeng Yunxi spoke in a tone neither servile nor overbearing, staring at the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor.
"Are you a descendant of Matriarch Southern Phoenix?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor suddenly asked. The moment he appeared, he instantly saw the phantom of an ancient phoenix behind Nanfeng Yunxi and he had already guessed her identity correctly. And now that he heard her words, he couldn't help but to feel disappointed at Que Tianyi. If it wasn't for Que Tianyi's good luck, he would never have accepted him as a personal disciple. From a certain perspective, Que Tianyi's luck was because of Qin Wentian, giving him a chance to become a personal disciple.
"That's right." Nanfeng Yunxi replied.
"Que Tianyi, apologize." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's majestic voice rang out, his words causing Que Tianyi to freeze. He also heard of the Southern Phoenix Clan before. Who would have thought that this beauty in front of him was none other than someone from there and was even a descendant of Matriarch Southern Phoenix.
And now, his master the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor actually commanded him to apologize.
"Give me some face. I will make my disciple apologize. How about ending the matter here?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor spoke to Nanfeng Yunxi.
"If an apology was sufficient, why would we be fighting against each other in the first place." Nanfeng Yunxi decisively rejected. "Since we are here in the City of Ancient Emperors, the matters of us juniors should be decided by ourselves. Senior best not interfere in this or your prestige and reputation would be damaged."
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's expression turned stiff. This Nanfeng Yunxi actually didn't intend to give him face?
"What do you want then?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor asked.
"This disciple of yours humiliated the members of my Qin Sect and even injured them. My cultivation base is the same as him and can't be considered as the strong bullying the weak. In addition, he's a personal disciple of senior. I want him to fight with me one-on-one, and I believe your majesty wouldn't have any reason to obstruct such a duel right?" Nanfeng Yunxi spoke in cold arrogance. Que Tianyi's expression froze when he heard her words. Earlier, he had already fought against Nanfeng Yunxi and clearly, he wasn't her match. If things continued, he would surely be defeated without a doubt. And also, this woman didn't simply plan on defeating him, she wanted to kill him.
Just as they were speaking, another wave of imperious might descended, enveloping this space. A blurry face appeared in the air, staring downwards as it spoke. "This place is the City of Ancient Emperors. The rules mustn't be broken. You should leave now."
"I won't personally make a move here and break the rules of the City of Ancient Emperors." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor inclined his head and spoke as he stared at the face. "Give me a few moments more, I will leave after I ask a few more questions."
"Okay. The grudges born in this place will be settled by the juniors themselves. You must not interfere." The majestic voice in the air boomed. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor spoke to Nanfeng Yunxi, "Since a descendant of Matriarch Southern Phoenix has joined this sect, I'm sure the power of the sect in the City of Ancient Emperors must be extraordinary. With your magnanimous heart, why must you hold it against newbies who just entered the City of Ancient Emperors? In addition, my disciples all have immortal-ranked weapons as well. If you guys truly went all out and fought, there would surely be injuries and death on a large scale. Why not take a step back?"
"You truly overestimate the abilities of your disciples." From afar, a voice drifted over. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's eyes turned sharp as he glanced over. Soon after, he saw a few figures approaching and his eyes couldn't help but to narrow as a gleam of coldness flashed within.
These few people who just arrived were none other than Qin Wentian, Jun Mengchen and Qing`er.
There was nothing that needed to be said about Qin Wentian. Jun Mengchen once rejected his offer to take him on and a disciple, causing his prestige to be damaged.
And who would have thought that the daughter of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor was actually together with Qin Wentian.
Que Tianyi and Gusu Tianqi evidently also saw the people who just arrived. Their attention was fixed onto Qin Wentian as a sharp light glimmered in their eyes.
"Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, your moral character is questionable, and your disciples are all the same as you, nothing but a bunch of scum, only knowing how to bully those weaker than them. However, the moment they lost the fight, they directly summoned you here. How truly ridiculous." Qin Wentian and his companions stepped forward, standing in the air.
"What do you think you are? Do you even have the qualifications to talk here?" Que Tianyi swept his eyes over to Qin Wentian. He was already extremely sullen by the way things turned out and now, this Qin Wentian was so audacious that he even appeared here to humiliate him. Truly impudent.
Qin Wentian stared at Que Tianyi as a mocking smile appeared on his face. After which he descended from the air and advanced forward. "A trash like you who summoned his master out the instant he suffers defeat...you actually still dared to speak so arrogantly? Back then both of us participated in the disciple recruitment event of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor at the Royal Sacred Region. Do you remember how it was that you got the position? You are nothing but a joke."
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor turned his eyes onto Qin Wentian as a terrifying might gushed forth from him. Upon feeling the pressure, Qin Wentian laughed coldly. "Why? What's the matter? Could it be that the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor is going to act against me personally in the City of Ancient Emperors?"
"Do you have the qualifications to speak here?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor coldly stared at Qin Wentian. "Scram."
"Scram?" Qin Wentian laughed as he stared at the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. "This place isn't your Eastern Sage Thirteen Prefectures. Over there, you can use all sorts of despicable methods and no one dares to say anything. But please wake the fuck up. This place... this place is the City of Ancient Emperors, old dog Eastern Sage."
"BOOM!" A violent wave of pressure directly bore down onto Qin Wentian.
"INSOLENCE!" That majestic voice thundered out. A supreme pressure enveloped the image of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor as the blurry face in the air spoke, "Do you want me to forcibly make you leave?"
The eyes of everyone present turned toward Qin Wentian. This fellow actually has a grudge with the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and even dared to publicly humiliate him, calling him old dog Eastern Sage. What audaciousness, this was great disrespect. He actually dared to behave in this manner towards an immortal emperor. His behaviour was simply too brazen.
"You are courting death." Que Tianyi coldly glared at Qin Wentian.
"Shut up." Qin Wentian glanced over, as cold light flickered in his eyes. His gaze was terrifying to the extreme, staring at Que Tianyi as he continued, "Scumbags like you, killing you would be nothing more than dirtying my hands. However, since you dared to humiliate the members of my Qin Sect...Que Tianyi, your life is already destined to end here in the City of Ancient Emperors. No one can protect you here."
"Qin Sect? You are also from the Qin Sect?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor stared at him. After which he turned to Nanfeng Yunxi and spoke, "The character of this man is truly inferior, daring to curse at and humiliate people of the senior generation. As a descendant of Matriarch Southern Phoenix, why would you invite such a person into your sect?"
"Lass Qing`er. Your royal father is a good friend of mine. It's best to distance yourself from this Qin Wentian." The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor then turned to Qing`er as he continued speaking.
Qing`er's countenance was like ice. She stared at the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and spoke, "You are the greatest hypocrite I've ever met."
The expression of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor froze, yet he could not allow his anger to erupt. He could only reply, "No matter what you are like a niece to me. Maybe there are some misunderstandings between us, but you have to know that everything I do is all for your own good."
"Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. There is no need for you to worry about the matters between us juniors. This place is the City of Ancient Emperors. Disciples of your sect wanted to show off their strength, yet they instantly summoned you after being defeated. With disciples of such lowly character, how can juniors like us still respect you?" Nanfeng Yunxi coldly smiled. "In addition, Qin Wentian isn't a member of the Qin Sect."
"He isn't?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor had a puzzled look on his face.
"He is the sect leader of the Qin Sect." Xu Ruxue who was standing at the side, spoke in a quiet voice. The geniuses of the Qin Sect present all turned their gazes towards Qin Wentian and spoke, "Sect leader, how should we handle this bunch of brazen disciples from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect?"
"Sect leader?" The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor's gaze stiffened. Qin Wentian was actually the sect leader of the Qin Sect?
"Impossible." Que Tianyi turned ashen. He knew very well of the Qin Sect's strength. It was an extremely terrifying power in the City of Ancient Emperors where even powerful characters like Nanfeng Yunxi decided to join. How could Qin Wentian possibly be the sect leader of the Qin Sect?
"Old dog Eastern Sage, you didn't expect it? Given the standard of these disciples from your sect...how lucky was it that me and my senior brother didn't choose to join the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect back then? If not, who knows, our standard might drop to this level, nurtured into trash by you." Jun Mengchen pointed to Que Tianyi as he laughed coldly. "Your personal disciple don't even have the qualifications to carry the shoes of my senior brother, yet you dared to tell my senior brother to scram?"
"Trash?" Que Tianyi's aura gushed forth, as numerous pale cold moons appeared in the air. He slowly stepped out towards the direction of Qin Wentian as he shouted in rage. "Qin Wentian, I want to see what qualification do you have to show off here."
Qing`er's aura was extremely cold as well and when she was about to step out, Qin Wentian spoke in a low voice. "Qing`er, let me handle this."
Qing`er halted her steps, and after that, Qin Wentian moved forward. A rumbling sound echoed from within his body as a startling might gushed forth. His entire body was circulating with a brilliant battle light. A shimmering runic glow covered the sky as a supreme, incomparable annihilative suppression pressure swept over everything, containing an overwhelming savageness in it.
God's Hand appeared, and upon seeing Que Tianyi continue moving forward, a cold light gleamed in Qin Wentian's eyes.
"DIE!" Que Tianyi roared. The numerous cold-looking moons gushed forth, shining their light onto Qin Wentian. However, Qin Wentian simply lifted his hand to block, grabbing outwards.
The palm imprint blasted out by God's Hand was so gigantic that it could blot out the sky. It completely suppressed all energy as a stifling pressure swept forth. Thunderous booms echoed out as the light from the pale moons was completely snuffed out. That gigantic palm imprint descended from the heavens, grabbing towards Que Tianyi and in that instant, Que Tianyi only felt a pressure so overwhelming that he couldn't even breath. Staring at that incoming palm imprint manifested by God's Hand, a sense of helplessness birthed in his heart. This terrifying suppressive might caused even his soul to be stretched taut.
Qin Wentian's palm imprint slammed down, directly injuring Que Tianyi heavily. Que Tianyi's body was then grabbed by that palm imprint, hoisting him into the air.
Que Tianyi let out earth-shattering roars, but Qin Wentian didn't even bother to look at him. Qin Wentian was looking at the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor instead as he spoke, "This... is this the standard of your personal disciple?"
