Chapter 1632: Conflict
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian started. Di Tian’s final attack was also something augmented by God’s Hand but it appeared more like a sealing-attributed palm from it’s external look. For people who were unfamiliar with God’s Hand, they wouldn’t be able to tell for sure. However, the Gemini Palace Lords were both experts from the Battle Saint Tribe, how could they be unable to tell?
God’s Hand is basically a technique born from the Battle Saint Art of the Battle Saint Tribe. This must be the reason why they could see through it so clearly.
“Senior’s vision is as blazing as torches. Di Tian and I are twins. There’s naturally no need for me to hide the fact that I’ve cultivated the God’s Hand from him. The two of us are both Saint Lords of this generation. Because we are worried that we might encounter danger here in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, we decided to conceal our identities and act separately. In this case, even if something happens to one of us, the other still could take revenge. Seniors, please help me to keep this a secret.”
Qin Wentian spoke. He didn’t reveal the fact about Di Tian was his avatar. He still needed to keep this a secret. If it wasn’t for the two palace lords being a part of the Battle Saint Tribe, he wouldn’t even have admitted to the slightest connection between him and Di Tian.
“No wonder.” The two palace lords nodded, not suspecting his words at all. Qin Wentian and Di Tian’s law attributes were completely different so no one would suspect that they are one and the same. They actually trusted Qin Wentian’s words even more.
“Don’t worry, we will naturally not leak this matter now. Is the Battle Saint Tribe still doing well? Are there people who followed you to the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms?”
“The Battle Saint Tribe is still doing well. As to why I came here, it was all due to a series of fortunate events and the Battle Saint Tribe didn’t follow me over. They are still in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms.” Qin Wentian slowly spoke. “Oh, seniors. If I wish to return to the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms, how can I do so?”
“Given your current cultivation base, it’s very difficult for you to directly breakthrough the barrier between realms. In addition, the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms are sealed away, so it is different compared to the other immortal realms. There should be teleportation arrays in the superpowers here but it’s very troublesome for you if you want to return now given your current strength.” Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, feeling some disappointment. It seems that it wouldn’t be easy for him to return to the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms.
“I still need to tell you one thing. The Lifelong Realmlord should be able to see that you used God’s Hand as well. He might not be able to discover that Di Tian was using it, but your attacks were too obvious. Saint Lord, I mean Emperor Yi, he had used God’s Hand before the Lifelong Realmlord before. You won’t be able to hide from him. Hence, you have to be prepared that the Lifelong Realmlord might not put you in an important position and use you. But as for your twin Di Tian, the chances of him being placed in an important position is much higher.”
Qin Wentian’s expression turned heavy. Seems like the relationship between the Lifelong Realmlord and Emperor Yi was somewhat unusual. It wasn’t as good as the rumors had said.
“In that case, what about Ye Qianyu?” Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed.
“He might have intentionally made her stay in the Lifelong Saint Hall but you don’t need to worry too much. There won’t be any danger to her. The Lifelong Realmlord upon seeing you using God’s Hand, would definitely assume that you are someone personally nurtured by the Saint Lord and was sent here by him to temper yourself. Although he wouldn’t place you in an important position, he also wouldn’t suppress you. Unless of course, your growth had reached a stage that’s threatening to him. In that case, he might try something.” The palace lords smiled.
Qin Wentian nodded. That’s right, out of the nine world palaces, one of the world palaces already belonged to Emperor Yi. He didn’t hide the fact about God’s Hand when in the competition, the Realmlord would definitely think that he is a successor nurtured by Emperor Yi. It was impossible for him to place a successor of a World Overlord in an important position in his Lifelong Realm. If not, would this realm be the Realm that belong to the Lifelong Realmlord, or the realm that belong to Ancient Emperor Yi?
Since he didn’t hide the fact that he was using God’s Hand, the Lifelong Realmlord would assume that he was someone arranged by Emperor Yi to come here but he wouldn’t do anything too drastic.
Upon thinking of this, a strange look appeared on Qin Wentian’s face. He didn’t expect using God’s Hand would lead to such a complicated result.
“Haha, do you feel gloomy?” The two palace lords laughed.
Qin Wentian bitterly smiled and shook his head, “I didn’t expect this at all.”
One of the palace lords stretched his hand out and patted Qin Wentian on his shoulder. “We will inform Saint Lord about your matter but we have no idea where he is now exactly as he is roaming the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. We will send a message to him. If you encounter any trouble in the future, you can come to us.”
After speaking, he took out his messaging crystal. Qin Wentian took out his as well. The three of them then left a trace of their immortal senses on each other’s crystals, it would be easier to communicate in the future.
After chatting for awhile more, Qin Wentian departed and returned to his own temporary residence to rest.
At the second day, the individual world palace lords brought along their serving maidens and went to the Realmlord to make their reports. Qin Wentian and the others continued to stay in the temporary palaces.
Qin Wentian, who had his eyes closed currently in meditation, suddenly heard some noise. He sent out his immortal sense and then stood up. His silhouette flashed and an instant later, he appeared outside the residence of Beauty Xiao. Right now, many people had barged in, and the one leading them was actually none other than Xiao Yu, the governor of the Lifelong City’s northern city regions.
Other than them, plenty of the Lifire Palace’s monarchs and governors came here as well. Upon seeing the situation here, there no longer was a charming smile on Beauty Xiao’s face. A look of cold stubbornness could be seen instead as she stared at Xiao Yu’s group of people.
“I’m ultimately still a governor of the Lifire Palace. By forcefully barging in, do you know the rules or not?” Beauty Xiao icily spoke.
“We are here to visit a junior of our clan, the Lifire Empyrean won’t have any objections.” An elder behind Xiao Yu walked out and coldly stared at Beauty Xiao.
“Who is your junior?” Beauty Xiao icily shot back.
“You don’t even want to acknowledge your ancestor?” That elder’s eyes gleamed with a cold light. “I heard that your actions in Lifire City are completely unrestrained, behaving wantonly, acting like a slut. You might not feel embarrassed, but our Xiao Clan of the Sword Spirit Sect cannot afford to lose such face.”
The Sword Spirit Sect was considered a sect, that was also a clan as well. Right now, two major clans were in control of the Sword Spirit Sect and one of them was precisely none other than the Xiao Clan. However, the Sword Spirit Sect also wouldn’t reject others who had different surnames if they wanted to join them.
Beauty Xiao of the Lifire Palace was precisely someone from the Xiao Clan of the Sword Spirit Sect.
Qin Wentian had a look of surprise on his face but the other monarchs and governors of Lifire City didn’t look surprised. Evidently, they all knew about this.
“I have long severed all relationships between me and the Xiao Clan. There’s no need for you guys to care about what I am doing.” Beauty Xiao coldly spoke.
“Slut.” Xiao Yu coldly spat, his tone extremely sharp. “Back then when the clan arranged a marriage for you, you refused to comply and insisted on following that trash. The clan did you a favor and killed that trash. Everything the clan did, it was for your own good. Who would have thought that you became such a cheap slut now and had completely thrown the face of our Xiao Clan. You actually even dared to not admit to this?”
Beauty Xiao’s expression turned ashen. She stared at Xiao Yu, “Considering our position in the family hierarchy, I’m your elder. You dare to speak to me like this?”
“For such a lot, how can you be fit to be my elder?” Xiao Yu radiated coldness, stepping out as though he was about to attack Beauty Xiao.
“This place is the Lifelong Saint Hall, you dare?!” Beauty Xiao’s expression changed.
“Even if you want to sever your relations with the Xiao Clan, the Realmlord won’t say anything if we want to discipline an unfilial member of our clan.” Xiao Yu icily spoke. He stretched his palm out, forming a gigantic palm imprint that radiated sharpness which blasted towards Beauty Xiao. Beauty Xiao’s expressions changed, she stabbed out with a finger attack to defend. They actually started to exchange blows here.
Although both were governors, their strength level was clearly different. After all, Beauty Xiao was a governor of Lifire City and Xiao Yu was a genius governor of Lifelong City. Numerous collisions occurred, but Beauty Xiao was clearly at a disadvantage. A few moments later, the ringing sound of a slap rang out. Beauty Xiao was directly knocked to the ground as traces of blood could be seen at the corners of her lips.
“My Xiao Clan originally should have crippled you. But seeing that you are a governor of the Lifire Palace, we can expel you from the clan if you kneel down and apologize and accept three blows from me. After that, your actions would no longer concern our Xiao Clan, you can be as cheap as you want to.” Xiao Yu coldly spoke as he stepped forward.
“Impudent.” A glacial voice rang out. Because Beauty Xiao was someone of the Xiao Clan, Qin Wentian initially didn’t want to get involved. After all, it was considered their Xiao Clan’s internal matters. But now, it was clear that the Xiao Clan came here purposely to humiliate Beauty Xiao. He truly could no longer stand it.
When Xiao Yu saw Qin Wentian, his expression turned extremely ugly. “Why, is an outsider like you planning to interfere with the matters of my Xiao Clan?”
Qin Wentian blinked and a terrifying sword intent instantly gushed forth, shooting straight towards Xiao Yu’s eyes. He took a step forward and slammed out with his palm. Xiao Yu’s aura exploded outwards as his own sword intent gushed forth, colliding with Qin Wentian’s. With a thunderous bang, his body was blasted back from the impact.
“What are you doing?” An expert of the Sword Spirit Sect icily spoke as he glared at Qin Wentian.
“Coming to our Lifire Palace’s temporary quarters to insult one of our governors and considering that this place is still the Lifelong Realm, did you guys place the Realmlord and our Lifire Empyrean in your eyes at all?” Qin Wentian walked to the side of Beauty Xiao as he coldly replied.
“This is an internal matter of our Xiao Clan.” An old man growled.
“She has already said that she severed all relations with the Xiao Clan. Also, didn’t you guys say that you wanted to expel her? Since this is the case, it’s clear that you all came here specifically to insult her, a governor of the Lifire Palace.” Qin Wentian coldly spoke.
“Seeing how this slut leaned against him yesterday. and how protective he is of her, I wonder if there’s anything sordid between them.” One of the experts from the Xiao Clan spoke. The Sword Spirit Sect felt no goodwill at all towards Qin Wentian. He defeated Xiao Yu and embarrassed him. How could they feel any goodwill towards him?
“And? So what of it?” Qin Wentian coldly laughed. He helped Beauty Xiao up and wrapped his arm around her waist, causing her body to tremble slightly as she inclined her head and looked at his handsome features.
“You guys are so interested in my private matters?” Qin Wentian threatened. “Don’t say that I didn’t warn you. If there’s anyone who still dares to insult or humiliate her, don’t blame me for not being polite.”
“Not being polite? How impolite can you be?” Xiao Yu sneered as killing intent radiated from him.
“Whatever you do to her, I’ll return it to you double.” Qin Wentian similarly radiated a cold killing intent.
“When you stepped out for Ye Qianyu, I still thought how deep and profound your love for her was. To think that you would also want such a slut.” Xiao Yu laughed loudly.
Beauty Xiao turned pale after Xiao Yu spoke. She glanced at Qin Wentian but there was no change to Qin Wentian’s expression. He merely barked, “Scram.”
Xiao Yu and his group all had ugly looks on their faces. After that, they looked coldly at Qin Wentian and said, “Let’s hope Governor Qin will still dare to protect her in the future.”
After speaking, the people of the Xiao Clan flicked their sleeves and departed.
