Chapter 1556: Youhuang is in trouble?
Qin Wentian’s life now was very simple. He would comprehend insights and cultivate with the aid of the emperor-grade cultivation platform. When he had more time, he would research forging methods and would do sculpting like the River Portrait Immortal Emperor, on emperor-ranked stones.
The River Portrait Immortal Emperor was a mid-stage immortal emperor and was also a grandmaster craftsman. Sculpting was his daily homework for Qin Wentian. This allowed him to get more familiar with the different law attributes of emperor stones and allow him to feel more at ease during forging. Qin Wentian understood this and he felt that sculpting was a good method to train his state of heart. During sculpting, he would be fully focused and his heart would be tranquil.
However, this was only possible because Qin Wentian was relatively wealthy now. If his wealth was the same amount back when he first arrived at the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, how could he be able to have such cultivation conditions, possessing emperor-rank stones for sculpting? This was simply too luxurious for ordinary cultivators. The plunder ten years ago resulted in a heavy harvest. He had gained many cultivation resources there and in addition to the fact that he had that supreme-grade cultivation altar, he usually wouldn’t need to use his spare cultivation resources in any case.
At this moment, Qin Wentian was currently sculpting an emperor-ranked stone. Beside him, an excellent creature in white laid down, accompanying him. Other than Ye Qianyu, who else could it be?
Ye Qianyu stared at Qin Wentian’s serious expression as a bright light flickered in her eyes. She was very fond of how focused Qin Wentian was when he was sculpting. He had no distractions in his heart. Despite her attempts at charming him, Qin Wentian’s heart wasn’t moved at all.
“Mhm?” Ye Qianyu’s beautiful eyes suddenly flashed when she looked at the emperor stone in Qin Wentian’s hand. Right now, he actually wasn’t sculpting a divine weapon, but was sculpting someone instead. The stone was slowly sculpted into a human form. An elegant figure, long-flowing air, and an extremely beautiful face gradually appeared. The facial features were innocent and pure, a smile from this person was definitely capable of toppling empires.
“Who is she?” Ye Qianyu had a serious expression on her face when as she stared at the sculpture. Qin Wentian didn’t stop. He continued carving lines, perfecting the sculpture, bringing it to life. After he was done, he took up another emperor stone and continued on. The second sculpture was in human form as well. When the facial features appeared, Ye Qianyu was sure that this was another supreme beauty. The second sculpture radiated an air of coolness, as well a sense of holiness. She was as flawless as a snow lotus on an ice mountain.
“Who are they?” Ye Qianyu’s beautiful eyes flashed. She had seen Beiming Youhuang before. But these two maidens sculpted by Qin Wentian didn’t resemble Beiming Youhuang.
Finally, the dagger of laws used for his sculpting disappeared, transforming back to astral light. He stared at the two sculptures as a look of warmth appeared on his face. Such warmth and gentleness was something Ye Qianyu has never seen before. When she saw that look, her heart couldn’t help but to tremble involuntarily.
Were these two maidens the reason why Qin Wentian could resist her despite her charm after so long?
“They are my wives.” Qin Wentian glanced at the sculptures as he spoke in a light voice. “I’m not someone from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. I came from the lower world, the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. Over there, I have so many enemies that they exist all over in that world. One day, experts from the vast majority of the major powers descended on the immortal empire my wife was in and forced me to show up. My friends and some seniors I’m close with, went with me, and an all-out war erupted. Sadly, I eventually died in that war. Hence, I’m someone who has already died once.”
Ye Qianyu didn’t disrupt Qin Wentian, she listened quietly.
“After that battle, one of my wife’s hair instantly turned white. The other one became like a living zombie, her eyes like dead ashes. This lasted until I managed to revive myself due to some extraordinary coincidences before her eyes finally glowed with luster once more. After that, I came to the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms to seek more opportunities. As for the two of them, they are still waiting for me back in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms.” Qin Wentian gently smiled, staring at Ye Qianyu.
“Is this the reason why your astral souls are all so extraordinary?” Ye Qianyu instantly understood.
“Mhm. My talent might be very ordinary if it wasn’t for my rebirth. After knowing all of this, is palace mistress still willing to waste time on me?” Qin Wentian smiled.
Ye Qianyu was actually smiling at Qin Wentian. Her smile was no longer like that of before, trying to charm him. It was just a gentle smile now, “Can you help me to sculpt a figurine of me?”
“….” Qin Wentian instantly turned speechless. What was this woman thinking about?
Staring at Qin Wentian’s eyes, Ye Qianyu giggled, “Maybe, I don’t even mind if I have to become your concubine. Do you want to try it?”
“Qin Wentian stood up and fled in a miserable manner. He hurriedly sat on his cultivation platform, but a moment later, Ye Qianyu’s laughter rang out, “Qin Wentian, are you not a man?”
Recently, Beiming Youhuang received a mission to temper herself.This mission was given to her personally by the Lifire Empyrean, telling her to venture into a secret realm. She naturally participated. This was a very important trial of the Lifire Palace and the participants cannot depend on any external items or communicate with others in the external world. Hence, the belongings of the participants, including interspatial rings, were all not allowed to be brought in. This naturally also included messaging crystals. Beiming Youhuang didn’t feel anything strange about that. She has been in the Lifire Palace for some years now and knew that this was indeed the rules.
But just when Beiming Youhuang accepted the mission, the Jialan Monarch actually sent out an arrest warrant for Qin Wentian and said that they would kill a comrade of Qin Wentian one month later. This news circulated very quickly, the forces under the Jialan Monarch seemed to already know that Qin Wentian was one of the bandits who partook in the plunder ten years ago.
At this moment, Qin Wentian still had no idea about all of this. Until one day where he was about to head to the River Portrait Immortal Emperor’s place, the Barbarian Emperor stopped him.
“Is something the matter?” Qin Wentian’s attitude towards the Barbarian Emperor was no longer as polite as before. After that incident when the Barbarian Emperor tried to get Beiming Youhuang to fight him, he knew that the Barbarian Emperor hated him immensely in his heart.
“Look at it yourself.” The Barbarian Emperor waved his hand. After that, an arrest warrant appeared before Qin Wentian. Upon seeing that, Qin Wentian’s expression grew extremely unsightly. He turned and prepared to head back.
“You want to tell the palace mistress?” The Barbarian Emperor transmitted his voice over. “Do you think that she wouldn’t know of this? If you tell her, do you think she will allow you to head to the emperor city? Or do you expect palace mistress would mobilize our forces due to your little lover and start a war to the death?”
Qin Wentian’s footsteps halted. He slowly turned and icily stared at the Barbarian Emperor. “You are telling me this because you want me to court death by going to the emperor city?”
“I can’t stop you or force you from going. You can decide what you want to do. In any case, only a few days are left. Naturally, from my perspective, your own life is naturally more important. Also, the palace mistress is fond of you. Why must you care so much about one of your lovers.” The Barbarian Emperor coldly laughed before he departed.
“How would I know whether you forged this arrest warrant or not?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke, staring at the back of the Barbarian Emperor.
“How ridiculous. You can easily investigate to see if the warrant is real.” The Barbarian Emperor directly left. Qin Wentian stood at his original location and took out his messaging crystal. He sent his immortal sense in and searched for Beiming Youhuang’s as he spoke, “Youhuang are you there?”
“Nobody replied.” He then continued, “Youhuang, things are extremely urgent. Get back to me immediately once you read this.”
There was still no reply. Qin Wentian’s expression turned pale. He lifted his foot and continued to head to the River Portrait Immortal Emperor’s location but his entire person was clearly distracted. Throughout the day, he sent numerous message but Beiming Youhuang didn’t reply no matter what he said.
Clearly, the words of the Barbarian Emperor were real. Beiming Youhuang was in trouble.
During the second day, Qin Wentian stealthily left Heavenly City alone. He naturally had a disguise on. Regardless of whether the news was true or false, he had to check it out.
He didn’t inform Ye Qianyu. Even if Ye Qianyu was willing to go with him, he didn’t want to implicate her in this.
After exiting Heavenly City, Qin Wentian sped up, moving with great speed towards a certain direction.
“Mhm?” On the way there, Qin Wentian suddenly frowned. His sharp senses told him that there were people tracking his movements. Although this feeling was very faint, his instincts told him that it was real.
However, he didn’t bother with it and continued on his way. Finally, two figures appeared before him, quietly standing there as though they have been waiting for him all this while.
Behind him, the people tracking his movements no longer bothered to mask themselves. Very swiftly, four powerful experts at the immortal emperor realm appeared before him.
In addition, one of them was a mid-stage immortal emperor. They were all fully clad in armor, in the attire of bandits.
“Barbarian Emperor, this should be your killing move, right?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke. One of the four immortal emperors here, was none other than the Barbarian Emperor.
“Qin Wentian, if you went to the emperor city and are captured alive, what would we do if you betrayed us? Leaving you alive is a source of trouble.” The Barbarian Emperor icily spoke. It was none other than these four emperors who leaked Qin Wentian’s identity as a bandit to the Jialan Monarch. However, the Barbarian Emperor only had a single intention. He wanted Qin Wentian to die. He naturally didn’t wish for Ye Qianyu to be implicated within.
Although Ye Qianyu’s treatment towards him was far inferior compared to Qin Wentian, he was still in love with her and has been so for many years. He only wanted Qin Wentian’s death.
“You guys are also Ye Qianyu’s subordinates? Barbarian Emperor was the one who incited you three to come and kill me?” Qin Wentian glanced at the other three emperors.
“The palace mistress is acting strangely recently. Us as subordinates, can only act in the shadows to help her recover.” An immortal emperor coldly replied. “Although we might get punished for this, we are still willing to do so.”
“If there’s any punishment, I will endure them alone on my own. Regarding the Thousand Feathers Palace, that’s the heart’s blood of brothers. We must not let an outsider change things.” The Barbarian Emperor’s voice was extremely cold. He then continued, “Do it.”
“Mhm.” The others nodded. Four immortal emperors, including a mid-stage one. Such a powerful group was sent out just to kill a mere peak-stage immortal king. This was already heavily respecting Qin Wentian’s strength. This naturally was the Barbarian Emperor’s arrangement. He knew how strong Qin Wentian was and the fact that Qin Wentian could easily kill an initial-stage immortal emperor. He had no choice but to be more cautious.
A bright light flashed as resplendent light energy radiated from Qin Wentian. The radiance was so blinding that the emperors couldn’t open their eyes. Simultaneously, the four emperors unleashed the power of their laws, causing beams of emperor light to descend from the sky as they resonated with their constellations. They stood in the four directions and directly launched attacks at Qin Wentian.
