Chapter 1551: Threaten the East, Strike at the West
The immortal emperor used a law energy prison to seal this space. The gaze he used to look at Qin Wentian with, was like he was staring at a dead man. His expression was cold to the extreme as he spoke, “Given your combat prowess, you could have made a living off the right path but you actually chose to be a bandit. Simply courting death.”
As the sound of his voice rang out, he stepped forth and Qin Wentian only felt a formless heavy pressure pressing down on him.
Qin Wentian’s expression was incomparably calm. Boundless light flowed from him, exuding an almost holy feeling, and was blinding to the extreme.
A spatial gate appeared as Qin Wentian stepped into it. At the next instant, the spatial gate opened at a location before that immortal emperor. Qin Wentian slowly stabbed forth with his finger as a beam of extreme brightness shot out, engulfing everything, brimming with destruction.
That immortal emperor punched out, the force of his attack shaking the void. The spatial gate directly crumbled as the boundless energy in the attack slammed into Qin Wentian. However, under the powerful radiance, no matter how strong an attack was, it would dissipate under the bright light. Qin Wentian’s finger strike actually unleashed a sword formed of light, flowing endlessly like a river, madly piercing into his opponent’s body.
How could one block an attack performed with light?
In an instant, pinpoints of white light appeared all around the immortal emperor’s body, slowly disintegrating him upon contact. In a few short moments, the emperor’s figure vanished completely. As for the prison surrounding them, it naturally dissipated as well.
“Mhm?” The experts who saw this situation all narrowed their eyes. That immortal emperor has vanished?
Not long ago, he established the law prison to make sure his target couldn’t flee and was prepared to kill him off. But now, the person who vanished was actually that immortal emperor?
However at this moment, everyone was engaged in a fierce battle. Nobody was actually able to spare the attention to deal with Qin Wentian. The battle between the Jialan Monarch and the Evil Emperor was the most brutal one. The aftershocks of their fight swept through the surroundings, destroying everything despite the vastness of the area where they fought in.
The terrifying giant beast manifested by the Jialan Monarch actually fought evenly against the Evil Emperor. As for the Jialan Monarch himself, he was fighting against Ye Qianyu. Just like what Ye Qianyu had said, as one of the nine monarchs under the Lifire Empyrean, how could the Jialan Monarch be weak? His position was even higher than peak-stage immortal emperors and there was naturally no need to doubt his combat prowess. If not, how could he sit securely in his position, and impose his will on experts of his territory?
Although if there were things he couldn’t settle with his strength, the Lifire Palace would surely send reinforcements. But why would the Lifire Palace want such a subordinate? The Lifire Palace naturally wanted the strongest people to share the burden of management with them.
Qin Wentian glanced over here before he cast another glance at Beiming Youhuang and the Barbarian Emperor’s battle. Beiming Youhuang possessed the absolute advantage, easily suppressing the Barbarian Emperor. If this carried on and if the Barbarian Emperor didn’t choose to flee, he might really be killed by Beiming Youhuang.
“Why are you still not helping me out?” The Barbarian Emperor coldly shot a glance at Qin Wentian, causing him to start.
“The Qin Wentian you spoke of was that slave? He has already died, he was personally killed by this man.” The Barbarian Emperor pointed at Qin Wentian as he spoke.
Right now, Beiming Youhuang was trembling when she heard that. Cold qi filled the air, she heavily injured the Barbarian Emperor, blasting him into retreat but she didn’t continue to pursue him. She then landed before Qin Wentian and asked, “Are his words real?”
“Eh….” Qin Wentian saw the cold eyes of Beiming Youhuang shining with a blood-like light while radiating a fearsome killing intent. Right now, she was truly terrifying to the extreme.
This beautiful princess of the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty actually cared so much for him?
That Barbarian Emperor truly hated him, intentionally putting him in a situation where it was hard for him to advance or retreat. Should he fight or tell Beiming Youhuang.
If he told Beiming Youhuang, he might be easily exposed. If others guessed that he was Qin Wentian, he wouldn’t be able to roam this territory after killing subordinates of the Lifire Palace any longer.
“Yes.” Qin Wentian’s silhouette flashed, he directly turned and fled after speaking.
“Ah!” Beiming Youhuang screamed when she heard Qin Wentian admitting to the Barbarian Emperor’s words. Her hair fluttered wildly as she blasted out with a palm, causing ice to freeze everything in her surroundings. Qin Wentian’s power of light gushed forth, breaking through the layers of ice while Beiming Youhuang pursued after him frenziedly.
Upon seeing this scene, Qin Wentian felt warmth in his heart. He didn’t expect Beiming Youhuang to be so concerned about him. She actually seemed to have gone mad after hearing news of his death.
He continued flying forward as Beiming Youhuang pursued him. Numerous times, he was almost struck by an attack but luckily, they were all negated by the power of his light laws. The two of them flew with great speed and soon arrived at an extremely faraway location.
Qin Wentian turned his head back to see Beiming Youhuang whose eyes were still bloodshot chasing after him. He then transmitted his voice, “Youhuang, it is I.”
Beiming Youhuang suddenly halted, staring dumbly at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian turned his body and faced her but he actually spoke this sentence, “Beautiful maiden, what do you mean by chasing me so far? Could it be that you’ve fallen for this seat?”
“Hu…” Beiming Youhuang initially knew that Qin Wentian was intentionally saying this after she heard his words. But although she understood, the coldness radiating from her grew more intense when she thought back to how he teased her now, in addition to her mad chase after him. She waved her hand as frost covered everything, directly freezing Qin Wentian who was clearly taken by surprise.
Qin Wentian stared at her dumbfoundedly. Beiming Youhuang was too ruthless. She actually attacked for real.
Bright light flashed from his body of laws as he broke apart the ice. He could see a bitter resentment in the cold eyes of Beiming Youhuang and he couldn’t help but to smile bitterly in his heart. “Youhuang, are you doing well beside the Jialan Monarch? He didn’t bully you, right? Should I kill a few of his immortal emperors to vent your anger for you?”
Beiming Youhuang couldn’t be bothered with him and continued her attack. Qin Wentian helplessly defended but he was only going through motions while Beiming Youhuang actually attacked for real. Many times, he was almost seriously injured.
“Mhm?” At this moment, Qin Wentian frowned. The Barbarian Emperor rushed here and roared coldly, “I shall help you destroy her.”
As he spoke, a giant palm slammed towards Beiming Youhuang.
Coldness flickered in Qin Wentian’s eyes. This Barbarian Emperor wanted to kill Beiming Youhuang? Or was he trying to make him expose his identity?
Once he admitted that he was Qin Wentian, not only would he be hunted down, Beiming Youhuang’s status would definitely be affected and would be in an extremely awkward position or might even be deliberately targeted by others.
“You restrict her first then. I will go kill others.” Qin Wentian’s body flashed, directly leaving the area, as he stepped through the void. This caused the expression of the Barbarian Emperor to turn extremely cold.
“Retreat!” At this moment, a command rang out in the air, spoken by Ye Qianyu. She and the Evil Emperor coldly glanced at the Jialan Monarch as they retreated. The bandits all retreated in her direction as well. The Jialan Monarch waved his hand, stopping the others from pursuing them. At this moment, he suddenly felt a strong sense of unease.
When they fought, nobody was guarding the teleportation arrays and they were destroyed by a few bandit immortal kings
Both forces were fighting, yet the bandits destroyed the teleportation arrays. What did this mean?
There was only a purpose for this, they wanted to prevent the Jialan Monarch’s forces from returning to the emperor palace. But he naturally wouldn’t assume that these bandits were daring enough to attack his emperor palace. However, what if they destroyed the teleportation arrays because they were doing something sneaky? Are there other groups of bandits?
The Jialan Monarch has occupied his post for many years and was naturally sensitive to matters like this. At the time he learned that the teleportation arrays were destroyed, he thought of many things as the worry in his heart grew stronger.
Ye Qianyu’s bandits, including Qin Wentian, had already returned to the back of the Evil Emperor. The revealed eyes of Ye Qianyu flashed with a mocking smile before they flew away.
Beiming Youhuang stared coldly at Qin Wentian as he departed, causing him to sweat. This woman…he was just teasing her earlier.
“Youhuang, do you remember the lake where we were travelling through back then? A month later, I will head there and look for you.” When the Evil Emperor was retreating, Qin Wentian transmitted his voice to Beiming Youhuang. The battle was too fast, he wanted to ask how Beiming Youhuang’s current situation was but there was no way for him to leave behind each other’s immortal sense in their messaging crystals. Qin Wentian could only arrange for a separate time to meet her.
Back then, he left Beiming Youhuang alone in the Jialan Emperor Palace for ten plus years. Although Beiming Youhuang was stronger than him, he still felt guilt in his heart.
“Monarch.” Upon seeing the Evil Emperor bringing the bandits away, there were experts walking towards the Jialan Monarch, staring at him in puzzlement.
The other party were bandits, although they couldn’t suppress them, there was no way they could allow them to leave so freely, right? If this was made known to the Lifire Palace, the Lifire Empyrean would definitely punish the Jialan Monarch.
“Something is wrong. They don’t seem to be here specifically to plunder the Purple Cloud Mine.” The Jialan Monarch narrowed his eyes. He took out his messaging crystal and very swiftly, it vibrated as a voice rang out in his head.
“Monarch, our Flowing Sand Mine and Heavenfall Mine just got attacked by bandits!”
“RUMBLE!” A violent aura gushed forth from the Jialan Monarch. He instantly flew forward, moving towards the city closest to here. The Flowing Sand and Heavenfall Mines were two out of the three main mines he was responsible for.
He did anticipate that bandits would attack the Purple Cloud Mine on the day where the exit spatial gate opens. Hence, he was lying in ambush here. To think that the true targets of the bandits were the two other mines instead!
What a good diversion tactic. Since this is the case, the powerful forces of the bandit group here weren’t their entire strength. How strong were they exactly?
After the Night Empyrean was killed back then, did he leave behind some of his vile spawns who had fortunately survived the purge?
