Chapter 1562: Unrivalled
Qin Wentian has arrived at the emperor palace.
Everywhere the radiance illuminated, the things there got destroyed. More waves of experts came but before they even arrived at where Qin Wentian was, their bodies instantly disintegrated from the pure radiance manifested by Qin Wentian’s laws of light.
“Senior Crow!” Someone called out loudly but the Crow Emperor didn’t seem to have heard it. Or more accurately, he wasn’t in the emperor palace at all.
The screams rang out unceasingly. Qin Wentian continued into the depths of the palace as an immortal emperor finally appeared. He was in control of a formation and caused it to shoot a golden beam of destruction at Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian glanced over and blasted out with his palms. A moment later, a manifestation of a thousand-armed buddha directly crushed the golden beam into nothingness.
The expression of that immortal emperor instantly changed. Although the formation was damaged slightly before this, the power of Qin Wentian’s attack was truly terrifying.
He waved his hand as a golden beast lunged out, blotting out the sun, capable of lacerating everything. Qin Wentian glanced up, his eyes were emotionless. He lifted his hand and punched out the Warring Heavens Divine Fist, an innate technique learned from the tiny astral-being. The power it exuded was like ten thousand buddhas ascending to nirvana, filling the skies with buddic light. Thunderous cracking sounds rang out and that giant beast was directly penetrated through, disintegrating into nothingness.
Qin Wentian’s long robes fluttered in the wind. He took a step forward and bypassed space, directly appearing before that immortal emperor.
With a glance at him, the radiance radiating from him flared up, casting its shine on his opponent’s body. In an instant, that immortal emperor had no choice but to shut his eyes when facing that blinding light. Fresh blood seeped out of his eyes. After that, his body slowly began to disintegrate into motes of light as a scream of agony echoed from his lips. The eyes of that immortal emperor continued bleeding, staring with disbelief at Qin Wentian. He simply couldn’t believe there would be such a disparity in strength when they were both at the same initial-stage of the immortal emperor realm.
Finally, he completely disintegrated, like he had never existed before. Qin Wentian directly bypassed him, continuing forward. The guards in the palace were already so frightened that they were trembling. Nobody dared to obstruct Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian continued and finally arrived at the core region in the emperor palace. If he continued heading in, he would then have arrived at the back area. At this moment, a powerful mid-stage immortal emperor appeared before him, staring at him icily.
“Where is she?” Qin Wentian asked.
“By slaughtering so many people here, could it be you want to implicate her even further?” That mid-stage immortal emperor icily spoke. Qin Wentian didn’t reply and directly stepped forward. In the blink of an eye, his eye-technique sealed his opponent’s resonance with his constellation. That mid-stage immortal emperor glanced up at the sky only to see a pair of eyes staring back at him there. Qin Wentian walked towards him calmly, his expression cold to the extreme.
“BOOM!” Qin Wentian was cloaked in emperor light. As he punched out, a brilliant radiance illuminated everything around him. That mid-stage immortal emperor hurriedly reacted but his defense was effortlessly destroyed by the blinding light. A look of despair appeared on his face and a few moments later, a tyrannical mid-stage immortal king was destroyed just like that.
From afar, Beiming Youhuang stood there. Her long hair fluttered and her beautiful eyes stared at the emperor light surrounding Qin Wentian. He has broken through to the immortal emperor realm and was more extraordinary than before, finally truly exuding a supreme magnificence. When facing mid-stage emperors, he was actually so domineering, able to sweep through everyone with invincibility. That innate technique in addition to the power supplied by his astral souls, made it that ordinary mid-stage emperors completely posed no threat to him.
She stood far away and didn’t move. She believed that Qin Wentian had already seen her. But right now, how would they meet with each other?
Beiming Youhuang was considered someone from the Lifire Palace. As for Qin Wentian, he wasn’t simply a bandit, he was someone who took the lives of numerous experts under the Jialan Monarch. On the surface, at the very least, the two of them couldn’t appear to be too close together.
Beiming Youhuang didn’t go to stop Qin Wentian too. She didn’t say anything and just silently observed. Right now, she already knew the whole story. Qin Wentian came to Jialan Emperor City for the sake of ‘saving’ her, and fell into a devious trap. Ye Qianyu showed up to save him but was eventually injured heavily and captured. What reason did she have to stop Qin Wentian?
As for the guards within the palace, when they saw how domineering Qin Wentian was, nobody dared to act at all. Everyone was hiding far away as the stared at trepidation at the scene before them. Their eyes were filled with rage. The Jialan Monarch led his troops to deal with the bandits at Heavenly City, and the Lifire Palace sent the Crow Emperor and Beiming Youhuang here for protecting it. Yet, the two of them actually did nothing to stop this. Only the two of them was strong enough to stop Qin Wentian.
If the Jialan Monarch knew about this, it was unknown what reactions would he be. Most probably, he would lose his mind and head to the Lifire Palace in anger. But when these guards thought about the identity the Crow Emperor and Beiming Youhuang had, all of them couldn’t help but to tremble. Could it be that the Lifire Empyrean wanted to make use of Qin Wentian to destroy the Jialan Monarch?
Qin Wentian arrived at the back area in the emperor palace. This place was usually used by the imperial concubines for their residence.
When Jialan Mingyue and her mother, a concubine of the Jialan Emperor named Molan, saw Qin Wentian appear, their expressions drastically changed. Molan was calmer as she was an immortal emperor after all who had an extraordinary state of heart. Jialan Mingyue’s expression kept changing from shock to disbelief as she looked upon the handsome features of Qin Wentian. This was the original face Qin Wentian had.
Qin Wentian was cloaked in light and radiated vitality due to his life-attribute astral soul. His demeanor was simply too outstanding and his looks were even better compared to before. Originally, it was also because of his good looks that Jialan Mingyue wanted to recruit him as a subordinate. However, Qin Wentian rejected her then, which led to everything that happened next.
Back then, Jialan Mingyue was gifted a city to rule by her father. How could she regard two unaffiliated cultivators highly? Even though Beiming Youhuang was an immortal emperor, she didn’t really fear her because her father was the monarch ruling this area.
However, never in her wildest dreams did she imagine that everything could happen in the world, and changes that happened would actually be this swift. Right now, Beiming Youhuang is already considered someone from the Lifire Palace, someone that her father didn’t dare to offend casually. As for Qin Wentian, he became a powerful bandit, depending on his cultivation base at the initial-stage of immortal emperor to kill his way into their emperor palace, standing before her. What irony was this?
“Where is she?” Qin Wentian’s expression was cold to the extreme, staring at the two of them.
“Qin Wentian, back then you were originally a valued guest at our residence but you have actually fallen so far and became a bandit. If you are willing to change, I can persuade my husband to ignore everything that has happened. After all, your talent will definitely be highly valued by the Lifire Palace, they would heavily nurture a heaven-defying genius like you.” The Molan Immortal Emperor’s eyes were still maintaining their calm as she forced herself to speak gently.
There were no fluctuations to Qin Wentian’s expression. If the Lifire Palace valued his talent and might ignore the casualties suffered by the Jialan Monarch, could the Jialan Monarch really be so big-hearted and forget the past?
Even if the Jialan Monarch could be so magnamious, he himself couldn’t do so.
His cold and mocking gaze turned to Jialan Mingyue, gleaming with a bright light. Jialan Mingyue didn’t dare to match his gaze but she still held herself upright and forced herself to stare at him.
“Valuable guest? Why did I fall so low to become a bandit? Are you guys not clear about this?” Qin Wentian’s voice was filled with a touch of heavy sarcasm. If it wasn’t for Jialan Mingyue, how could the scene today have occured?
Jialan Mingyue’s expression turned incredibly unsightly. Everything that happened now was an after-effect of her intial actions. If she didn’t send Qin Wentian into the mine, all the things that happened later, wouldn’t have happened.
“What do you want to do? If you really kill us, my father will definitely use all methods at his disposal to kill you and that vixen.” Jialan Mingyue’s countenance turned wretched.
“Similarly, I will also use all methods at my disposal to kill your father.” Qin Wentian coldly spoke. “I’ll ask for the last time. Where is she?”
“She has been shifted away by the Lifire Palace and is no longer in this city. It is impossible for you to save her unless you can slaughter the entire Lifire Palace. This wasn’t suggested by my husband, but an order given by the Lifire Palace instead. No matter if you kill us or not, you won’t be able to change the current situation.” The Molan Immortal Emperor glanced at Qin Wentian. She then continued, “I know you have a deep hatred against my husband. But at the very least as of now, you are still in a weaker position. If you kill us, it would only implicate that bandit leader. You best think thrice before acting.”
The radiance from the laws of light unleashed. He glanced at Jialan Mingyue, “Your daughter, an initial-stage immortal king is already so crafty and unruly. If I allow her to live on, how many people would be harmed by her in the future?”
Qin Wentian remembered Yang Yun`er who was excavating the mine with him. She was precisely sent there because her family offended Jialan Mingyue.
The radiance then shone upon Jialan Mingyue, causing her expression to turn as pale as paper. She stretched out her hand, attempting to block the radiance as she screamed, “MOTHER, SAVE ME!”
The Molan Immortal Emperor erupted forth with might. Although she knew it was impossible for her to win against Qin Wentian, she still acted with no reservations when she saw her daughter being captured.
Qin Wentian waved his hand as a beam of light directly shot into the Molan Immortal Emperor. Her body froze as the terrifying laws of light bound her movements. As for Jialan Mingyue, she kept screaming as her body disintegrated bit by bit. Her facial expression contorted before she finally disappeared forever.
“Mingyue!” Molan had forgotten the pain she was enduring as she screamed when she saw her daughter vanishing. Her gaze was filled with hatred when she turned to Qin Wentian again.
Qin Wentian had no expression on his face. As one of the nine monarchs, the Jialan Monarch thought himself to be a lofty being who could control the fates of others. Jialan Mingyue was the same as well. How would they regard a minor character like him who just came to the Supreme Ancient Realms seriously? If it wasn’t for Ye Qianyu, if it wasn’t for him breaking through to the immortal emperor realm, he would long be squashed like ants by these people and he wouldn’t even leave a mark in their hearts.
“Impudent bandit, how dare you kill your way into the emperor palace.” A cold voice rang out. A current of destruction drifted over as the Crow Emperor’s figure appeared. He truly came at the ‘right’ time!
