Chapter 1552: Vixen’s Victim
After the Jialan Monarch arrived at the city closest to the Purple Cloud Mine, he discovered that the teleportation arrays here leading to the emperor palace were damaged too. Clearly, this was a deliberate provocation that was planned long in advance.
As expected as a surviving vile spawn of the nefarious Night Empyrean. The Jialan Emperor had a heavy look on his face. He knew that he would soon have to face great pressure from the Lifire Palace.
As for Ye Qianyu’s group, things were the same as the previous time. The bandits respectively got off at different stops, silently disappearing from view. No conversation was necessary, all of them were in tacit agreement. Ye Qianyu, Qin Wentian and the others then returned to the Thousand Feathers Palace in Heavenly City.
“Qin Wentian, you didn’t use your full strength to kill enemies. You clearly could kill that initial-stage immortal emperor but why did you not do it?” As they returned, Qin Wentian’s features returned to normal. The Barbarian Emperor immediately start to berate him.
Qin Wentian coldly glanced at him, “I still want to ask you what your true intentions are. You clearly know that she is my senior sister, yet you purposely want her to fight with me. If I wasn’t held back by this, I naturally could kill more people. What is the meaning behind your actions?”
“Palace mistress, Qin Wentian’s senior sister is someone from the Lifire Palace. His heart will not be with us sooner or later.” The Barbarian Emperor coldly snorted, staring at Ye Qianyu.
“A`mun, since I dared to use him, I naturally would have considered everything. Also, Qin Wentian has already fought with us and even killed an immortal emperor from their side. What problems can there be?” Ye Qianyu calmly spoke. “A`mun, you should return to your residence first. After we get the treasures from the mines, I will help you to forge an even better emperor-ranked weapon.”
“Many thanks palace mistress.” The Barbarian Emperor clasped his hands and shot an icy glance at Qin Wentian before he took his leave. Ye Qianyu and Qin Wentian were after all, returning to the same place as Qin Wentian was staying in Ye Qianyu’s personal palace…
Inside the palace, Qin Wentian stared at Ye Qianyu as he asked, “Palace mistress, what was the purpose of our plunder this time around?”
He naturally discovered that this operation was not usual. Hence, he couldn’t help but to ask now.
Ye Qianyu’s earlier solemn look melted away as a charming smile appeared on her face. She didn’t reply to Qin Wentian. Her soulful eyes regarded him and spoke, “Your little lover is truly beautiful and is extremely powerful. So it turns out that you are in love with such ice beauties.”
Qin Wentian had a speechless look on his face but he didn’t explain anything. There was no way to explain things to this vixen.
“Don’t worry. Although we clashed head-on earlier and didn’t gain any harvest, overall, we seized enough cultivation resources for a hundred years from the other two mines.” Ye Qianyu laughed. “The Jialan Monarch controls a total of three great mines. They are the Purple Cloud Mine we attacked, and the Flowing Sand Mine, as well as the Heavenfall Mine. While we were attacking the Purple Cloud Mine, I sent two more groups to attack the Flowing Sand and Heavenfall Mines. Tell me, if immortal emperors led immortal kings to plunder a mine, how many guards stationed at the mines would be able to stop them?”
Qin Wentian stared at the smile on Ye Qianyu’s face as his heart pounded lightly. The attack this time around was to mask her true targets. What an audacious plan. Qin Wentian couldn’t help but to smile bitterly. This bandit leader was no minor bandit. Has he already boarded onto the pirate ship?
Staring at the bitter smile on Qin Wentian’s face, Ye Qianyu giggled, “Right now, you can’t even leave if you want to. Do you regret it? Do you want me to get someone to forge two emperor-ranked weapons for you? Tell me what divine weapons you want.”
Qin Wentian shook his head, the bitter smile on his face was still there. Ye Qianyu blinked, “Could it be that you are angry because I didn’t inform you about this earlier?”
“I don’t dare.” Qin Wentian shook his head. This was the first time he participated in a bandit operation. It was only normal that Ye Qianyu didn’t tell him the full plan.
“Are you really angry? Could it be that you want me to marry myself to you? You can just say it if that’s what you want. Who knows? I might really agree to that.” Ye Qianyu coquettishly smiled at him. That gaze filled with charm caused Qin Wentian’s ability to resist to be severely weakened. When he saw Ye Qianyu moving closer and closer to him, Qin Wentian was about to start sobbing, “Palace mistress, I’ll go and focus on my cultivation now.”
As he spoke, he started to turn around and hasten away, running towards his cultivation platform.
“If you are in love with ice beauties, I can change my demeanor and make it colder.” Ye Qianyu called out while laughing as she stared at the fleeing Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian stumbled and almost fell to the ground. Could he really still focus on his cultivation in the future…?
The Flowing Sand and the Heavenfall Mine were plundered and the guards there were all annihilated. A majority of the excavated stones were all taken away by the bandits. As for the person responsible for these two mines, the Jialan Monarch, he didn’t appear at all. He only showed up after the bandits plundered the mines and by the time he came, all bandits had already disappeared.
This matter caused a large commotion in the Lifire Palace. The Lifire Empyrean was extremely enraged and sent people there to investigate. The Jialan Monarch headed to the Lifire Palace to apologize. In the Lifire Palace, several monarchs who had always been in opposition to the Jialan Monarch, accused him of failing in his duties and beseeched the empyrean to remove him from his post. But ultimately, the Lifire Empyrean still decided to give him a chance, telling him to investigate this manner completely and he has to find the bandits regardless of the cost. If his strength wasn’t sufficient to suppress and annihilate them, he can apply for reinforcements from the Lifire Palace after he has found the bandits.
Only then did this matter came to a close. The Jialan Monarch started his investigation. However, the bandit group left no clues for him and how could they jump out involuntarily to confess that it was them who plundered the two mines? They would definitely lay low for a period of time or might even retire completely.
Just like what the Jialan Monarch anticipated, Ye Qianyu’s group of bandits wouldn’t act again within a short period of time.
As for Qin Wentian, he was prepared to head to the emperor city for his meeting with Beiming Youhuang. After Ye Qianyu learned of it, she actually wanted to tag along. Qin Wentian was speechless and naturally decisively objected. What a joke, an immortal emperor of such beauty tagging along would definitely be too conspicuous. Did this woman not know of her own status? The daughter of the Night Empyrean, the leader of a group of bandits. She still wanted to go to the Jialan Emperor City? What a crazy person.
Although Qin Wentian adamantly objected, his objection was naturally ineffective…
Hence, one day, a strange group appeared in the Jialan Emperor City.
A young man with an extraordinary aura walked around the emperor city. This was naturally none other than Qin Wentian who had changed his facial features. Despite so, his demeanour remained unchanged and was extremely attractive. However, the passersby on the street only took a casual glance at him before tossing him to the back of their minds. This was because the person beside him was simply too dazzling.
Ye Qianyu was clad in a phoenix dress today, which further accentuated her perfect figure. Her bright smile and charming eyes radiated a radiance that drew the attention of others. Her snow-white skin and alluring figure was truly a sight pleasing to the eyes.
What was even more mesmerizing was that there was a slit in her dress, revealing her perfect long and sexy legs, adding to her mesmerizing aura.
However, nobody dared to antagonize her because when their immortal senses swept past her, they couldn’t ascertain her cultivation base. Clearly, she had a higher cultivation compared to them.
But such an alluring maiden with no flaws was actually locking arms with that young man. Her smile was extremely charming and there was a blessed look on her face. But what was strange was that the young man had a cold expression on his face like he wanted to beat someone up… This scene seemed a little incongruous. Many people felt the impulse to rush and beat Qin Wentian up, tossing him by the roadside to replace him and lock arms with the beautiful maiden.
They were cursing this bastard in their hearts. Living in such fortune, yet he still had a cold expression on his face? What did he mean by this? He doesn’t know how to cherish beauty? Why did he look like he was forced to lock arms with her? He is simply a bastard…
Qin Wentian truly felt like beating someone up. It was fine that this vixen came, but could she be more low-profile about it? What was she wearing? Why was she wearing so provocatively? Is she trying to attract more attention? This bandit lord was actually so out in the open now, Qin Wentian really felt the urge to cry.
He initially wanted to keep a low profile but it seems that his plan was destined to end up in failure. Everyone who passed by them clearly took note of them.
“Can you let go of me…” Qin Wentian gritted his teeth and transmitted his voice over. He could feel the warmth of her arm. Right now, he felt very miserable, extremely miserable.
“Am I not beautiful?” Ye Qianyu had a doleful look in her eyes as she stared at Qin Wentian. Such a look was capable of instantly causing someone’s heart to soften.
She was not not beautiful, but was too overly beautiful!
Qin Wentian completely gave up when he saw that look. He knew that it was useless. There was no way for him to stop anything this vixen wanted to do.
Under the moonlight, the scenery of the lake was beautiful to the extreme. The dragon boats sailed leisurely on the water, accompanied by sounds of zither music. In the various pavilions beautiful maidens could be seen dancing as well, it was truly a beautiful and relaxing sight.
Qin Wentian sat on a dragon boat as he extended his immortal sense outwards. Beside him, Ye Qianyu laid down in a carefree manner with her head on his shoulder. Her perfect figure was truly tempting to the extreme, causing many dragon boats to start gathering around Qin Wentian just for a glance at this beauty. Although these people didn’t dare to disturb them directly, they felt that there was nothing wrong for them to look.
Qin Wentian’s peak-stage immortal king aura instantly gushed forth, permeating the surroundings. He radiated coldness as he spoke, “Scram!”
After that, many dragon boats surrounding his all drift away. Ye Qianyu’s eyes flashed with a bright light when she saw this. She giggled, “Why? Are you jealous when you see so many people looking at me?”
Qin Wentian gritted his teeth, He glanced at the excellent figure lying beside him. He didn’t know why but when he saw many people looking at Ye Qianyu, although the emotion he felt couldn’t measure up to jealousy, he felt pretty uncomfortable about it. Maybe, this was the innate nature of males.
“Why don’t you woo me then? If you do so, I will only let you alone look at me. You can stare at me as long as you want to.” Ye Qianyu had a charming smile on her face. Her long hair fluttered in the wind, that mesmerizing face of hers was extremely beautiful under the moonlight.
“Palace mistress, please spare me.” Qin Wentian transmitted his voice over. If this continued, someone would surely die.
At this very moment, an immortal sense ‘bumped’ into Qin Wentian’s immortal sense. After that, Qin Wentian felt his body growing cold and he hurriedly opened his eyes. He then directed the dragon boat towards a certain direction. From afar, an extremely beautiful ice beauty could be seen standing on a different dragon boat. Under the moonlight, she seemed like a goddess, similarly attracting the attention of several people. Yet, the eyes of this ice beauty were fixed upon Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu.
Ye Qianyu was as though she sensed something. She smiled widely and actually laid down with her head resting on Qin Wentian’s thigh. Qin Wentian’s gaze instantly froze!
