Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Jialan Qiuyue was undoubtedly an exceptional beauty. She had the title of the number one beauty in Lifire City and even when in Lifelong City, she was also considered one of the peak-level beauties here. She, who is elegant and dignified, now completely had a cute and dependent look on her face. Her eyes sparkled brightly as a charming smile filled her face. Her current appearance was completely capable of toppling empires.
“Hmph.” Xuanyuan Hao abruptly snorted as his expression turned extremely unsightly. He coldly shot a look at Jialan Yunhai. The experts from the Sword Spirit Sect and the Heaven Punishment Sect, all had ugly looks too. Jialan Yunhai, who was also caught by surprise, also had a drastic change to his expression. Today, he said that it was a welcoming reception for Jialan Yuntian’s group on the surface but in truth, he wanted to make use of Jialan Qiuyue’s beauty, using her to form a marriage alliance.
If people from the three peak powers took a fancy to Jialan Qiuyue, he would simply ask their father for her. Jialan Yuntian would have no way to protect her if his own father agreed to his second brother’s proposal. Jialan Yuntian’s influence would gradually weaken and the clan leader’s position would eventually be Jialan Yunhai’s.
“Big brother, when was Qiuyue betrothed?” Jialan Yunhai glanced at his brother Jialan Yuntian as he asked.
Jialan Yuntian coldly looked at his brother, “Qiuyue’s marriage partner is something that she decides on her own. What do you mean by the word ‘betroth’?”
“Mhm.” Jialan Yunhai had a calm look on his face as he continued asking, “This Grandmaster Di Tian, why have I never hear brother mentioning anything about him before this? Which peak power is he from?”
“Grandmaster Di Tian is a peak-tier weaponsmith, he established his own power, the Emperor Pavilion. He is not from any peak powers.” Jialan Yuntian coldly replied.
“A power established by a mid-stage emperor?” The young man sitting beside Xuanyuan Hao laughed.
“There are many grandmasters in my Xuanyuan Clan, including many peak-level weaponsmiths. Earlier, I heard Jialan Skywolf saying that you wanted to seek guidance in an exchange of pointers?” Xuanyuan Hao also spoke out. He who was seated there, exuded a sense of arrogance, there was cold disdain in his eyes when he glanced at Qin Wentian.
“That was from someone who is too self-opinionated. I didn’t say anything about an exchange of pointers and also don’t intend to come here and prove anything to the Xuanyuan Clan. How boring is that?” Qin Wentian calmly replied. But the young man beside Xuanyuan Hao stood up and laughed, “Oh, but I feel this would be extremely interesting. I have a divine weapon with me now and this is something created by a grandmaster from my Xuanyuan Clan. Since you proclaim that you are a grandmaster as well, why don’t you take out the creation you are most satisfied with and compare?”
As the sound of his voice faded, he didn’t wait for Qin Wentian to reply. A terrifying aura gushed forth, the young man from the Xuanyuan Clan had a nasty smile on his face as he took out a divine weapon. Emperor light flared, as astral light cascaded down from the sky. Instantly, an aura capable of cleaving the heavens and earth could be felt from the emperor-ranked divine weapon. However, the thing that appeared on the hand of the young man, was actually merely a ring. After that, he wore the ring on one of his fingers.
He took a step forward and smiled as he looked at Qin Wentian. “Grandmaster Di Tian, how is this divine weapon?”
As he spoke, he stretched his finger and pointed it at Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian smiled. He took out a glove-type divine weapon and similarly, a terrifying sealing light erupted forth, forming a resonance with the astral light cascading down from the sky. Powerful sealing energy emanated forth as he wore the glove. He stretched his hand out as a burst of sealing might formed a palm imprint that grabbed out, directly sealing away the entirety of energy fluctuations radiating from the ring.
The smile on the young man’s face instantly vanished. His body froze as well. Qin Wentian laughed as he continued to exert force, causing the sealing palm imprint to grab even fiercer. The young man’s body trembled violently, feeling a formless pressure boring down on him.
“The might from your ring isn’t too bad. A casual divine weapon you took out already possess this level of power, and even needed a divine weapon forged personally by this seat to negate the might from your ring. The Xuanyuan Clan truly lives up to their reputation.” Qin Wentian replied. Although there was nothing but praise in his words, the young man felt a hot sensation on his face, he had been completely shamed.
The people in the surroundings all revealed gleams of sharpness in their eyes. As for Jialan Qiuyue, she stared in astonishment at Qin Wentian as bright light flickered in her eyes. This fellow had took out so many treasures to auction away in Lifire City. But it seems like there were even much better stuff which he didn’t bear to auction away.
“Grandmaster’s reputation is truly well deserved. Was this glove forged by you?” Xuanyuan Hao suddenly stood up as his eyes gleamed. The Xuanyuan Clan had the largest transaction grounds and Xuanyuan Hao naturally could be considered as an expert in grading treasures. If this glove was truly forged by Qin Wentian, Qin Wentian would undoubtedly be a terrifying weaponsmithing genius.
“Naturally. His weaponsmithing abilities are without equal in Lifire City.” Jialan Qiuyue spoke.
“Mhm, if grandmaster has some time in the future, you can come and pay a visit to my Xuanyuan Clan.” Xuanyuan Hao instantly became more polite. After that, he swept a glance at his son, “Quickly apologize to Grandmaster Di and step back.”
The expression of that young man froze. His expression was unnatural, but upon seeing the sharpness of his father’s gaze, he bowed and said, “Grandmaster Di, I apologize if I’ve offended you earlier.”
“Don’t worry about it.” Qin Wentian casually said, silently musing that no one here was a simple character.
Jialan Yunhai’s expression continuously changed. He took a step forward and forced out a laugh, “Why is everyone still standing about? Grandmaster Di Tian, please be seated.”
Qin Wentian glanced at Jialan Yunhai as he coldly laughed in his heart. He then calmly replied, “It’s fine. I, Di, still have something I need to do. I won’t remain here then. Farewell.”
“This…” Jialan Yunhai’s expression changed again. Qin Wentian couldn’t be bothered with him and directly turned and left. Jialan Qiuyue was actually still holding on to his hand. She spoke lightly in an affectionate manner, “Let me send you off then.”
The two of them then began to walk towards the exit yet a voice suddenly rang out at this moment, “Hold on.”
Qin Wentian turned his head only to see a terrifying pair of eyes staring right at him. Formless swords seemed to materialize, shooting into Qin Wentian’s eyes, piercing into his soul.
The Sword Spirit Sect, they were unrivalled in their ability to control their swords. Using a spirit sword to slay souls, they could kill from a distance and no one would know who did it.
Qin Wentian’s eyes suddenly turned extremely terrifying. With a glance over, his holy sword will shot out, crushing all his opponent’s attack. A scream of misery rang out as that expert from the Sword Spirit Sect who attacked clutched his eyes. There were actually blood flowing down.
Qin Wentian coldly snorted before continuing to walk away. The people of the Sword Spirit Sect stood up, only to hear Xuanyuan Hao saying, “You guys can’t afford to lose?”
The leader of the Sword Spirit Sect stiffened, before slowly sitting down again. He glanced at the young man beside him. This young man was naturally the person who attacked. He finally took his hands away, but trails of blood could be seen flowing from his eyes. If it wasn’t for Qin Wentian showing mercy, he would have already been blinded.
“That man is also proficient in soul attack techniques.” The young immortal emperor’s voice quavered abit. Earlier at that instant, he had experienced an extremely terrifying thing. Jialan Yuntian’s eyes gleamed with a bright light. This Grandmaster Di Tian was truly mysterious. Seems like the things that happened today might not necessarily be a bad thing.
He stared at the direction of Qin Wentian’s departure. When he saw Qin Wentian and Jialan Qiuyue holding hands and walking side by side, a faint smile appeared in his eyes.
As for Jialan Skywolf, he had long turned ashen. Only now did he know that that character whom he had been mocking, was someone far superior to him. In terms of weaponsmithing, Di Tian could suppress the Xuanyuan Clan, in terms of soul attacks, he also exceeded the Sword Spirit Sect. As for he himself? Di Tian had never treated him seriously at all. The glance which Di Tian shot him, only now did he know that that was filled with boundless contempt.
Jialan Qiuyue walked with Qin Wentian to outside the Jialan Clan before she released his hand. She smiled sweetly and stared at him, “Grandmaster Di Tian, have you taken enough advantage of me?”
“I did that in order to help you. In that situation, if it wasn’t for me, how awkward would you feel?” Qin Wentian shrugged.
“Mhm, in that case, you mean I have to thank you, right?” Jialan Qiuyue rolled her eyes at him.
“Sure.” Qin Wentian seriously nodded.
Jialan Qiuyue didn’t expect Qin Wentian to be so shameless. She glared at him with her beautiful eyes before smiling, “In that case, how does Grandmaster Di Tian want this little lady to thank you? How about I offer myself in marriage?”
Qin Wentian had a bizarre expression on his face. He smiled at Jialan Qiuyue, he didn’t expect that the number one beauty of the Jialan Clan who was always so composed and dignified to have such a mischievous side to her. Seems like the facade everyone displayed out in the open might not necessarily be their true self. People would only show their true face when their states of heart were wavering. At that instant earlier, Jialan Qiuyue actually had no trepidation in her heart with regards to him. If not, it was impossible for her to make such a joke.
This made Qin Wentian feel somewhat strange. What if she learned that he was only using her in the future. What would she think?
“Such a beauty like you. In that case, I would rather comply than to go against your wishes.” Qin Wentian laughed. Jialan Qiuyue harshly glared at him, but she had a smile on her face. She surveyed him before saying, “You have so many secrets on you. Liu Feibai challenged you but you refused to accept. Right now, an immortal emperor from the Sword Spirit Sect actually cannot even withstand the power of a single glance from you. From this, one can roughly tell how powerful you are, and given your capabilities in weaponsmithing…how many secrets do you actually have?”
“My greatest secret might be that I’m plotting to get close to you and gain your trust.” Qin Wentian laughed.
“Oh, is that so? In that case, you have succeeded.” Jialan Qiuyue smiled. “However, if you want me to trust you more, why don’t you remove your mask and show me your true appearance?”
“Wouldn’t you be afraid that I’m too ugly?” Qin Wentian laughed. “But don’t worry, if you really manage to see my face, I won’t be an old man. Maybe, I would even be more good looking than you imagined. You will definitely be shocked.
“Oh?” Jialan Qiuyue’s beautiful eyes gleamed. “You refuse to show me even after taking advantage of me? Isn’t this a little unfair?”
“There’s no one who has ever seen the face beneath my mask. If you wish to be the first, that is still not enough.” Qin Wentian flashed a smile at her. Jialan Qiuyue felt taken aback when she heard his words. She blushed slightly, actually feeling some shyness but this only caused her beauty to be even more apparent.
“Haha, I’m leaving first.” Qin Wentian laughed loudly. After that, he turned as his silhouette flashed, soaring into the air.
Staring at his departing back, Jialan Qiuyue stood there in a daze. After that, a bright and beautiful smile flickered in her eyes, further increasing her beauty!
