Chapter 1626: Seeking Permission to Fight
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
In the crowd, a figure stepped out. He was dressed in white and his black hair was as dark as ink.
His eyes were boundlessly deep, shining with starlight. He was extraordinarily handsome and radiated a magnificence that would last through the generations. Just standing there was sufficient for him to give off a transcendent aura. With a glance, one could easily tell that this was not an ordinary character. His bearing was too outstanding.
Beauty Xiao had a smile in her eyes as she stared at the figure who just appeared. The smile on her face grew increasingly radiant.
This fellow really chose the right time to appear. He actually came here. One must know that the Lifire Palace Lord didn’t bring him along, intentionally telling him to stay at Lifire City. But he still chose to come and appeared now at such a critical moment.
The Lifire Empyrean’s eyes flashed when he looked at the person who appeared. Unhappiness could be seen on his face as his expression turned somewhat cold. This man actually defied his orders and came to Lifelong City of his own volition.
The gazes of people from the Jialan Clan also froze as they looked at the man who just appeared. Jialan Qiuyue’s eyes gleamed with sharpness. That arrogant fellow actually truly came here.
“Who is he?” Jialan Yunhai asked.
“Qin Wentian, a governor of Lifire City. He’s the figure we were speaking about earlier.” Jialan Yuntian replied. This man was precisely none other than Qin Wentian.
At the towering stairway in the direction of the Lifelong Realmlord, many figures had sharp looks in their eyes. In fact, quite a few governors from Lifelong City were trembling, their auras exploded outwards like they wanted to rush out now. Among them, the number one governor of the northern city regions Xiao Yu, was the one affected the most. His eyes were terrifying, shooting out electric sparks, as a fierce sword intent radiated from him.
“It’s him.” How could Xiao Yu not recognize this man? This was the mysterious challenger who had defeated him domineeringly, causing him to lose all face. To think that he actually came here today.
Among the crowd, there were also people who had personally witnessed the mysterious challenger’s fight in the northern city regions. Many people were mumbling to each other as they discussed, causing the competition between the nine world palaces to come to a temporary halt. The appearance of this man seemed to have affected several people.
“Who are you? How dare you disrupt the competition between the nine world palaces.” A cold voice rang out from Ye Kong of the Skyair Palace, he was already on the towering platform.
“Is the Lifire Palace still intending to fight? If you are not, just retreat. The Lifire Palace is only good for filling up the numbers, it’s of no importance whether you all fight or not.” An expert from the Dragonsaddle Palace mocked, his words causing the Lifire Empyrean’s expression to turn extremely ugly. He stared at Qin Wentian and asked, “I commanded you to stay behind at Lifire City to guard your territory well and to suppress all troubles. Who gave you the guts to come to Lifelong City? How dare you defy my orders!”
Qin Wentian saw the coldness in the Lifire Empyrean’s eyes. He naturally understood that the Lifire Empyrean captured Ye Qianyu because he wanted to control him. But now, Ye Qianyu was already shifted to Lifelong City, if the Lifire Empyrean had no way to control the fate of Ye Qianyu, he would surely be worried that Qin Wentian might try something. Let alone the fact that this event now, was the grand banquet of Lifelong City. The Realmlord was watching everything and if Qin Wentian became another Di Tian, dazzlingly displaying his prowess and attracted the Realmlord’s attention, there would be nothing the Lifire Empyrean could do to him.
The Lifire Empyrean naturally didn’t want to see Qin Wentian slipping out of his control.
“Reporting to Realmlord, I’ve already settled everything back in Lifire City. I heard that the Realmlord had personally set up a grand banquet to welcome the heroes of Lifelong City and Nine World Palaces, I felt curious and envy in my heart and decided to come and take a look. Please pardon me.” Qin Wentian bowed, appearing extremely humble. He then continued, “I didn’t expect that after I arrived here, I saw the experts from the other world palaces bullying our Lifire Palace. I, Qin Wentian, humbly request for palace lord to send me in the place of Beauty Xiao. For this round of battle, your subordinate is willing to fight for our Lifire Palace’s honor.”
Qin Wentian spoke, his words instantly enlightened others on his identity. So, he was a governor of Lifire City and wished to participate in the battle.
However, this governor was just a mid-stage emperor. What could he do? The experts on the towering platform all had mocking expressions. This mid-stage governor simply didn’t know what was good for him. As expected, the Lifire Palace was truly only good for filling up the numbers.
“Nonsense. You are just at the mid-stage, stop making a fool out of yourself and come here and sit down. This battle will be handled by Beauty Xiao.” The Lifire Empyrean berated, he didn’t want to give Qin Wentian and chance to perform.
“Although your subordinate is not that strong, I can’t stand seeing these people humiliating our Lifire Palace. Qin Wentian is seeking permission to participate in this round, Palace Lord, please grant me my wish.” Qin Wentian spoke, exuding a heroic manner.
“Lifire Empyrean, your subordinate is truly interesting.” The Skyair Empyrean calmly spoke.
“Are all governors from the Lifire Palace so weak? In the past rounds, the Lifire Palace only obtained a single #2 ranking. Right now, a mid-stage emperor stepped out to save face for the Lifire Palace, it felt as though the situation would be extremely bad without him. How ridiculous.” Someone sarcastically commented.
“Most probably, there’s no one else left in the Lifire Palace.” The other palace lords were all extremely unhappy by the fact that Qin Wentian disrupted the competition.
“I once challenged four governors in the northern city regions of Lifelong City and I won all four battles. Although no governors from Lifelong City have participated in the competition between the nine world palaces, you guys can ask yourself this question whether you all can win against Lifelong City’s governors. How dare you underestimate others and act so arrogantly? So what if I’m a mid-stage immortal emperor. Have you all forgotten the cultivation base of the person who obtained first in the martial competition earlier?”
Qin Wentian flicked his sleeve and domineeringly spoke. Instantly, the eyes of many people gleamed with sharpness. The volume of the discussion among the crowd also grew louder, creating a loud commotion.
“So he is that mysterious challenger who defeated four governors in the northern city regions back then?”
“This man even won against Governor Xiao Yu. He is extremely powerful, I’ve personally witnessed his might.”
Many voices rang out, causing the eyes of everyone to turn sharp. Countless gazes turned to Xiao Yu. Even the people of the Lifire Palace were shocked when they heard that. They all turned to glance at Qin Wentian. This fellow actually already arrived at Lifelong City earlier and had consecutively defeated four powerful governors of Lifelong City, including the number one governor of the northern city regions, Xiao Yu.
Xiao Yu had an ugly expression on his face. The numerous gazes turning towards him caused him to clench his fists tightly, feeling extremely ashamed.
“Do you dare to fight again?” Xiao Yu’s gaze pierced through space as he looked towards Qin Wentian. His gaze flickered with coldness as he stood up. His actions undoubtedly verified that this Qin Wentian was truly the mysterious challenger who had defeated four governors back then.
What was more shocking was the fact that he was actually the only governor from the Lifire Palace with a cultivation base at the mid-stage of the immortal emperor realm.
Why did the Lifire Empyrean not want to let such an expert fight in the last round of the competition?
“How can it be him?” Jialan Qiuyue froze. Not long ago, Di Tian obtained the top ranking in the martial competition. At that time, she felt that Qin Wentian was definitely inferior to Di Tian. Di Tian was a grandmaster weaponsmith and had displayed shocking talent in the martial path with a cultivation base merely at the mid-stage of the emperor realm.
However, Qin Wentian appeared now and he had defeated four powerful governors of Lifelong City, including Xiao Yu. Before the Jialan Clan came here, they were still discussing about this matter.
That mysterious challenger was actually the arrogant northern governor of Lifire City whom she loathed.
Jialan Yuntian’s expression changed as well, feeling extremely shocked. No matter how high he set his sights in the past, he discovered that he had ultimately still underestimated Di Tian, as well as Qin Wentian.
“Bastard!” The Lifire Empyrean cursed silently in his heart. Other than feeling shocked at Qin Wentian’s strength, he also felt a sense of unease. This Qin Wentian seemed to have already made his preparations extremely long ago. Today, he would display his prowess before the Realmlord for sure or he wouldn’t have challenged Xiao Yu and the other three governors.
He could already sense that Qin Wentian was gradually walking out of his control.
Xia Hou, Yin Qiu, the Jialan Monarch and the others all had ugly looks on their faces. None of them felt any goodwill towards Qin Wentian and many had conflicts with him.
Only Beauty Xiao felt joy. When she heard the news, the light in her eyes gleamed even brighter when she looked at Qin Wentian. This fellow actually defeated four powerful governors of Lifelong City.
“No need. It’s pointless to fight anymore with you. If I’ve offended Governor Xiao before, please don’t hold it against me.” Qin Wentian calmly rejected, causing Xiao Yu’s expression to turn even more unsightly.
“Palace Lord, Qin Wentian is seeking permission to fight for our Lifire Palace’s honor.” Qin Wentian bowed towards the Lifire Empyrean.
The Lifire Empyrean glanced at everyone. He saw the Realmlord looking at him and he understood that if he still didn’t allow Qin Wentian to participate in this situation, things would be illogical.
“Qin Wentian, seems like your strength has improved. In that case, go on and win some glory for my Lifire Palace” The Lifire Empyrean’s expression changed to a gentler one as he smiled. Since he already made his decision, he might as well go all the way.
“Many thanks, Palace Lord. This subordinate will do my best.” Qin Wentian’s silhouette flashed as he flew towards the central platform. When he passed by Beauty Xiao, Beauty Xiao’s eyes stared charmingly at him as she transmitted her voice, “You are so gutsy.”
Qin Wentian didn’t reply and passed her by. By defying the Lifire Empyrean’s order and coming here, was truly a risky action. The Lifire Empyrean would surely feel unhappy in his heart. Also, since the Lifire Empyrean lost control over Ye Qianyu, he didn’t know what attitude the Lifire Empyrean would have when they interacted in the future.
But since he had personally seen Ye Qianyu appearing here, he had to take the risk. Although he had already made some preparations earlier, he was in truth, taking things step by step. Since the Lifire Palace had suffered so miserably, choosing to stand out at this moment was undoubtedly the best opportunity.
When Qin Wentian arrived at the platform, the transcendent-level emperors from the eight other world palaces all turned their gazes towards him. Although earlier they felt contempt for him because of his lower cultivation base, but after they heard he defeated Xiao Yu, they couldn’t help but to take him seriously. They were all cursing silently in their hearts. Before this, a mid-stage immortal emperor monster Di Tian had already appeared and obtained first in the martial competition. Right now, another monster appeared in this competition between the nine world palaces? Also, both of these freaks originated from Lifire City. What was going on in Lifire City?
At a remote corner, a group of females could be seen there. Ye Qianyu was among them, she had a radiant light in her eyes and was extremely beautiful at this moment. She simply silently looked at that figure.
“Is it him?” A maiden at the side asked Ye Qianyu in a light voice.
“Mhm, it’s him.” Ye Qianyu nodded. The fairies of the Red Dust Immortal Palace all gazed at Qin Wentian. So it was this young genius that caused Ye Qianyu to be imprisoned in the Lifire Jail? They all wanted to see how high his talent is.
“What sort of person is he?” Someone asked.
Ye Qianyu blinked, she felt gratified in her heart that Qin Wentian was now still the Qin Wentian she knew. She then broke into a bright smile, “I initially thought that he had changed, I didn’t expect him to be as silly as before.”
