Chapter 1606: Throwing Herself into His Arms
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian’s body trembled when he heard Beauty Xiao’s words. He gently pushed her away, his dark eyes gleamed with sharpness as he spoke, “Is this news real?”
Beauty Xiao glanced at him with eyes filled with hidden resentment. “Don’t you know your actions are very hurtful?”
“Beauty Xiao, you should know how important this news is to me.” Qin Wentian stared straight at her.
“Ai, is the disparity between me and Ye Qianyu so great?” Beauty Xiao sighed. Her jade-like hands stretched out, cradling Qin Wentian’s face as she smiled, “This news is naturally real. Can it be that I called you over just to lie to you?”
“Why would the Lifelong Saint Hall interfere in this?” Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed sharply.
Beauty Xiao smiled as she replied, “Did you collude with the Jialan Clan?”
“Jialan Clan?” Qin Wentian narrowed his eyes, suddenly recalling the visit from the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor. Before this, he already had some doubts. Although the Jialan Clan publicly invited him, the palace lord wouldn’t act so obviously, sending the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor to personally check up on him even if he was suspicious of him.
However, only after he heard Beauty Xiao’s words did he realize that things weren’t as simple as he imagined. The Purple Moon Immortal Emperor might have been there to probe him, seeing if he knew about this matter where the Lifelong Saint Hall wanted to move Ye Qianyu away. If he inadvertently revealed something and was discovered by the Purple Moon Immortal Emperor, his ‘collusion’ with the Jialan Clan would then become a reality.
When he thought of this, Qin Wentian couldn’t help but to perspire cold sweat. If the Jialan Clan truly was behind this, it means that the Jialan Clan was simply too terrifying. Not only was their background fearsome, their methods were fearsome as well. Just a simple invitation to a birthday celebration actually had so many plots behind it. He didn’t really take it seriously when the Jialan Clan tried to sue for peace. What’s terrifying was that they had many ways to follow up with their actions the moment he accepted the invitation to head to the birthday celebration event.
The Lifire Empyrean could control Qin Wentian because there was a variety of reasons. Other than strength, what is his other greatest assurance? Undoubtedly, it was Ye Qianyu. As long as Ye Qianyu was safely imprisoned in the Lifire Jail, Qin Wentian would be loyal to the Lifire Empyrean, helping him to deal with the Jialan Clan. But if the Jialan Clan made a move against Ye Qianyu, pulling the carpet under, how would the Lifire Empyrean view Qin Wentian?
If this was in the past, the Lifire Empyrean might not really care about this. Placing him on the northern governor’s seat was just a test of his abilities. After all, the Lifire Empyrean had placed many people on the northern governor’s seat before him and all their endings had been miserable. If Qin Wentian was weak and died to the Jialan Clan, the Lifire Empyrean wouldn’t care too much about it.
However, it just so happened that Qin Wentian used a mere fifty years to control the northern regions, making all the powers there pay up tributes obediently, fully displaying his prowess. Even the Jialan Clan wanted to use him and was willing to wipe the slate clean for all previous grudges, ignoring the Jialan Monarch’s attitude despite the Jialan Monarch being a Jialan Clan member.
“What are you thinking about?” Beauty Xiao involuntarily asked when she saw the expression on Qin Wentian’s face constantly changing.
“Will the Jialan Clan be successful in moving her away from the Lifire Palace?” Qin Wentian asked. Right now, this was the crux of the question. If the Lifire Palace suspected him, it would be impossible for them to allow Ye Qianyu to be moved.
“The battle between characters at the upper echelons isn’t something I’m that clear of. I also have no idea how things would turn out.” Beauty Xiao smiled. She then continued, “I’ve already told you such important news, how are you going to thank me?”
“In the future, you can ask me for help for whatever matter you might need help for.” Qin Wentian replied. Since Beauty Xiao could receive such news, her backing shouldn’t be simple. He had to maintain this level of relationship with her. After all, although he had temporarily tamed the northern city regions by using iron-blooded methods, he was still ‘blind’ when it comes to the situation inside the Lifire Palace. He needed Beauty Xiao to update him on the happenings within there.
Beauty Xiao’s eyes were like silk. Her alluring body pressed into Qin Wentian and Qin Wentian could clearly feel her full figure. She then stretched out a jade-like hand and placed it against his chest while softly speaking, “Could it be that you still have no idea what I want?”
“Beauty Xiao, I’m no gentleman. You should understand that given your exceptional beauty, if I can have a night of passion with you, it’s not of any disadvantage to me. It’s just that I, Qin, feel some regret for you should I do this… Given your status and beauty and I believe you would surely be able to find a good dao companion in the future. You shouldn’t be defiled by me.” Qin Wentian directly spoke, his words causing a bright light to flash through the beautiful eyes of Beauty Xiao. She had a tender expression on her face as she placed her hands around Qin Wentian’s neck, continuing to press her body against his as she whispered, “I’m willing to be defiled by you. You are so handsome, it’s still not known who would be the one suffering a disadvantage.”
Qin Wentian instantly felt a nefarious heat coursing through his loins when he heard that. Beauty Xiao’s entire person was already lying against him. Her figure was so soft and full, he stared at her charm-filled eyes as his heart stirred. He then hoarsely whispered, “Have you thought things through clearly?”
“You are so naggy.” Beauty Xiao giggled, exuding boundless charm. Her entire body already seemed to be stuck permanently to him.
Qin Wentian glanced at her only to see Beauty Xiao smiling at him, “Just take me already. Don’t tell me you are afraid that I would eat you up?”
“…” Staring at the mock contempt in Beauty Xiao’s eyes, Qin Wentian was completely speechless.
“Are you a man or not?” Beauty Xiao’s voice was filled with rapture, as though she could no longer control herself. Her nightgown slipped off, Qin Wentian involuntarily lowered his head, staring at her twin peaks.
“You better not regret this.” Upon staring at that perfect body, Qin Wentian’s eyes turned slightly red. He directly carried her and walked towards her bed chambers. Beauty Xiao’s smile grew more and more radiant. She leaned in closer and whispered in his ears, “Go to the garden, the scenery is more beautiful there.”
Qin Wentian only felt his entire body heating up. The truth was like what he has said. As long as one was a man, it was extremely difficult to resist the boundless seduction and charm of an exceptional beauty like Beauty Xiao.
The scenery of the garden was truly extremely outstanding, improving the ambience.
After a period of fondling and teasing, their bodies finally connected, both of them lost in mutual enjoyment. Flower petals made up their bed as Beauty Xiao’s womanly fragrance permeated the surroundings. Her devil-like figure huddled together with Qin Wentian as she squirmed in pleasure. Right now, it was unknown how mesmerizing she was. She gently bit his earlobes as she whispered, “In the future, why don’t I follow you and be your concubine?”
Qin Wentian glanced up at the sky, “Regretting it now?”
“Regret?” Beauty Xiao giggled. “Do you really think that I want to be your concubine? Do you not know how terrible your current circumstances are? You are sandwiched between the Lifire Palace and the Jialan Clan, who knows when you would lose your life. When we are out of here, I do not wish for anyone to know about our relationship. In any case, since I’ve ‘gotten’ you, I’m not at any disadvantage at all. It’s well worth it for telling you about the news.”
“Beauty.” Qin Wentian glanced at the vixen beside him, “Since you’ve already taken advantage of me, help me out in the future by paying attention to news inside of the Lifire Palace.”
Beauty Xiao looked at him with a smile that was not a smile. “I thought that I was already very cheap, taking the initiative to throw myself into your arms. Who would have thought that you are even more shameless than me. After bedding me, you still want me to help you to do things?”
“However, seeing how comfortable you made me and how much enjoyment you gave me, I’ll help you pay attention to the news, allowing you to have a chance to save your little lover Ye Qianyu.” Beauty Xiao then looked into his eyes and continued, “How would there be another woman like me in this world? Although I clearly know that you are making use of me, only bedding me because you want my help, I don’t feel any resentment towards you.”
“Making use of you?” Qin Wentian mumbled, maybe she was right.
After a few moments, he then spoke, “Beauty, if there’s a conflict between me and the palace lord one day, which side would you be on?”
“I will be on the side of whoever possess the advantage.” Beauty Xiao charmingly replied. “Don’t assume that I’m your woman just because you bedded me. However, if you really want the Lifire Empyrean’s position, let me remind you that strength alone is insufficient. Even if you really have enough strength to defeat the Lifire Empyrean one day, you might not be able to take his position. The Lifire Empyrean is the controller of one of the nine world palaces that are directly under the Lifelong Realmlord. If you killed him, that would be direct insubordination, the Realmlord would surely send people to hunt you down. If everyone dares to act so insolently, how would the Realmlord be able to manage the Lifelong Realm? The only option remaining is that you obtain the favor of the Realmlord and he is willing to give you a fair chance to compete for the position.”
Qin Wentian glanced at her with a puzzled look. This woman’s mind was extremely sharp and very intelligent. Even for matters between males and females, she could be so open in her mindset. It was impossible to get her to be completely on his side, opposing the Lifire Empyrean. However, it was evident that she had a more favorable impression of him compared to the palace lord, she would be willing to silently help him out in the future.
“Then, what do you think I should do now?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Regardless of the Lifire Palace or the Jialan Clan, both have the ability to crush you. However, the Lifire Empyrean wished to use you as a chess piece and find a way to move against the Jialan Clan. Hence, he doesn’t really want you to die. But as long as he discovers that you have truly thrown in your lot with the Jialan Clan, he would definitely ensure that you die a miserable death. You must never take this step no matter what. As for the Jialan Clan’s side, they can also kill you. But now, immortal emperors would already find it very difficult to kill you and if they really wanted to do so, they would surely have to pay a huge price for it. Not only that, after they killed you, they would be conveniently providing the Lifire Empyrean with an excuse to openly move against them. Hence, unless they are truly forced by the circumstances, they wouldn’t act against you. This is why the Jialan Clan would rather forget all past grudges and attempt to recruit you, even trying to sow discord between you and the Lifire Palace now.”
Beauty Xiao analysed the current situation for Qin Wentian. “Hence, what you need to do now is continue to apply pressure on the Jialan Clan on the surface, but don’t move too fast or do things too forcefully. You can only hope for your survival by not making any wrong moves. At the same time, you should strengthen yourself and try to gain the Realmlord’s attention. Only then, would you truly have a chance to survive.”
“I completely have no way to interact with the Lifelong Realmlord.” Qin Wentian frowned.
“The chance will come soon.” Beauty Xiao’s eyes were like silk, she stared at Qin Wentian and continued, “For the Lifelong Saint Hall, they would hold a gathering once every hundred years for the nine empyreans, as well as their monarchs and governors. The gathering place is always set at Lifelong City and right now, the hundred-year mark is soon approaching. Hence, your chance would soon be here.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed with sharpness, but Beauty Xiao soon giggled, “However, it’s a fact that the Lifelong Saint Hall wants to move your little lover away and the palace lord is already suspicious of you. If Ye Qianyu is truly shifted away, I’m afraid that you won’t have the chance to go to Lifelong City this time around. The Lifire Empyrean would definitely prevent you from going.”
