Chapter 1694: All the Empyreans
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
In the vast space, trapped by the tree vines, there were many demon emperors. However, all of them were turned into the heaven devouring beast’s nutrients. This was a simply shocking sight.
Many demons felt their hearts trembling. The heaven devouring beast was as expected of a unique beast, it was actually able to contain the essence and energy of so many powerful greater demons and there didn’t seemed to be any change to its body.
Finally, after the heaven devouring beast finished its devouring, he transformed back into that snowy-white puppy. His stomach rumbled as he slowly made his way towards Qin Wentian and laid down lazily. After that, he closed his eyes, and golden light could be seen gleaming from its body.
Qin Wentian had a look of astonishment on his face. Was this falling asleep after feasting on a good meal?
“Purgatory, help me take care of Little Rascal.” Qin Wentian passed Little Rascal over to Purgatory. His gaze turned to the skies as he continued, “Since you all have already arrived, why don’t you show yourselves. Is there any meaning to hiding away?”
Many people felt their hearts pounding. There were still experts hidden? Among the crowd, the vast majority were all peak-stage demon emperors but they didn’t sense anything. Didn’t that mean that these experts all had higher cultivation bases than them?
A moment later, three figures descended through the air, moving towards the location where the Jiang Clan gathered. Their gazes were terrifying as though they could see through everything and everyone.
The Jiang Clan of the southern regions had always been mysterious. They appeared low-profile and didn’t seek to gain power, yet they give others an incredibly dangerous feeling. Right now, three empyreans appeared within their midst. The gazes of everyone naturally turned over, feeling great waves of emotions rocking their hearts.
These three were all existences at the ancient emperor level?
If it was true, wouldn’t things be too terrifying?
“Three empyreans, how impressive of the Jiang Clan.” Qin Wentian spoke. His words undoubtedly verified the speculations of the crowd. Many people felt their hearts pounding fiercely.
“The Jiang Clan originates from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. The Jiang Clan here is just a side branch of ours.” One of them spoke. Qin Wentian silently mused that the waters of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms were truly deep indeed. The Heavenly Talisman Realm, Jiang Clan, Ying Clan and some of the others all actually had inheritances from the upper world. Now after the ban was relaxed, there were so many experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms coming here. He also didn’t know the reason why.
Evidently, the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms wasn’t as simple as it looked to be on the surface. If not, there wouldn’t be any reason for empyreans to come here. Azure Mystic didn’t have any means at all and the average strength of cultivators were much weaker when compared. Why would the empyreans want to come here?
If it was purely for the sake of recruiting disciples, there should be more than enough people in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms to choose from. There was no need for them to expend the effort and travel all the way here to do so.
In the air, more experts descended but they didn’t head to any other major powers. They only smiled, “We are just passing by here to watch the show.”
From different directions, over ten empyreans appeared, seemingly out from the void. Upon seeing this scene, the experts from Azure Mystic all felt their hearts trembling wildly. There were actually so many empyreans hidden in the dark?
Are these all ancient emperor characters?
They simply didn’t dare to imagine that there were actually so many legendary characters actually gathering in their Azure Mystic Immortal Realms today. This made them feel extremely unbearable. They weren’t able to accept this in such a short time.
However, Qin Wentian already knew that there were many experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms coming here. And now that such a major thing was happening in Azure Mystic, it would naturally attract their attention. It was impossible to hide this from their immortal senses.
“Since everyone came from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms and are all empyreans, you guys naturally are our Azure Mystic’s guests.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke, he also wouldn’t offend all these empyreans for nothing.
“Those from the Heavenly Talisman Realm, just come out. There’s no need to hide any longer.” Qin Wentian glanced in the direction of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. After all, he knew that it was possible for the Heavenly Talisman Realm here to open a spatial tunnel to connect the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms to the dimension they were in. Although he didn’t specially sense the surroundings, he knew that the empyreans from the Heavenly Talisman Realm must have also arrived and were hiding in that separate dimension.
“The Heavenly Talisman Realm?” Many people turned their gazes to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. After that, an empyrean laughed, “I didn’t expect that they are from the Heavenly Talisman Realm. To think that they would have such a peak power under their control in Azure Mystic. They must have been preparing for many years.”
From the void, light flashed as several figures walked out, all of them empyreans. Their auras were extremely terrifying and they were clad in golden robes, exuding an imposing majesticness. They were none other than experts from the Heavenly Talisman Realm in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.
Countless gazes stared at these empyreans that appeared from the void. At this moment, they only felt a sense of surrealism.
Today, they initially thought that it would be a battle with all the peak powers of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms participating in this. However, at this moment, many discovered to their horror that even the vast majority of peak powers didn’t have the qualifications to participate in this.
In addition, Qin Wentian evidently already knew that such a scene would occur. Qin Wentian, who was now at the ancient emperor level, no longer placed the peak powers of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms in his eyes. He summoned the peak powers of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms to gather and obtaining his revenge was merely his first step. Earlier, he had hidden his true cultivation, not revealing his ancient emperor-level strength because he wanted all his enemies to send themselves to the death by appearing before him.
Only now did the people of Azure Mystic realize that Qin Wentian was no longer on the same level as them. He who has returned, was an ancient emperor, a lofty existence they could only look up to.
“The devil cultivators of the Myriad Devil Islands have actually arrived here at Evergreen’s royal capital. What do you all want?” At this moment, an empyrean of the Jiang Clan spoke, his words causing the eyes of everyone to flash. The devil cultivators of the Myriad Devil Islands also arrived?
Although the volume of his voice wasn’t loud, it traveled easily through the air. Everyone in the royal capital heard it. All of them then waited quietly and not long after, a fearsome devil might could be felt permeating the area, causing those weaker cultivators to feel stifled.
The devil experts of the six supreme devil halls, and all devil emperors controlling the devil regions had arrived, forming a fearsome army of devils, powerful enough to rival the alliances of the immortal realms.
Right now in Azure Mystic, the immortals, the devils and the demons each had a separate area where they held supreme. Before the Demon God Mountain appeared, the Myriad Devil Islands were already separated from the rest of the immortal realms by the devil gate, both in opposition. The entirety of the strength the Myriad Devil Islands possessed was capable of contending against the alliances in the immortal realms. From this, one could imagine how powerful they were. Right now, the six supreme devil halls have led their experts over and surrounded everyone.
“Does the Myriad Devil Islands also want to unify the immortal realms and become the hegemon? However, where is the Myriad Devil Sovereign?” The people of Jiang Clan laughed. No matter how powerful the devil army of the Myriad Devil Sovereign was, if there wasn’t an empyrean backing them, they were simply not worthy of a mention. Before empyreans, immortal emperors were like ants. Everyone was very clear about this point when they saw Qin Wentian act earlier.
Only to see the devil cultivators all turned their gazes to the figure in white standing in the air as they bowed together and roared, “We pay our respects to the Devil Sovereign!”
“We pay our respects to the Devil Sovereign.” In the direction of the devil army, everyone bowed as they greeted. This caused countless people’s expressions to flicker as they stared at the person the devil army was bowing to. Over there, in the airspace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire, the white-robed Qin Wentian was precisely the one standing there.
At this moment, the hearts of many involuntarily trembled again.
“Dispense with the greetings.” Devil might radiated from Qin Wentian, creating a fearsome pressure. With a wave of his hand, the devil experts all inclined their heads. At this moment, the hearts of countless people violently trembled.
So it turned out that Qin Wentian was the Myriad Devil Sovereign.
They initially thought that Qin Wentian had returned from the upper world and wanted to lend the aid of major powers friendly to him for his revenge. He gathered the Evergreen Immortal Empire, Southern Phoenix Clan, Matriarch Ji and the others to help him. However, never in their wildest dreams did they expect that Qin Wentian had actually become the Myriad Devil Sovereign. The countless devil experts from the Myriad Devil Islands all treated him as their lord.
If those empyreans from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms didn’t show up, just given the strength of Qin Wentian’s forces, it was already enough for him to conquer and unify the immortal realms. Even the currently powerful Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect couldn’t be compared to him. After all, the millions of devils on the Myriad Devil Islands would obey him. Just this group alone was sufficient to contend against the entire immortal realms.
“Brother Qin has actually already controlled the Myriad Devil Islands. Now that the devil experts have gathered here, are you preparing to take control by force, forcing the other powers and the various demonic races to submit to you?” Jiang Zihua asked.
“Who is your Brother Qin?” As Jiang Zihua’s voice rang out, Qin Wentian shot a stare over as he coldly spoke, “Are you even worthy?”
Jiang Zihua froze, his countenance turning unsightly. Qin Wentian’s words were simply smacking his face, not polite at all. But, who would dare to say that what Qin Wentian has said was wrong?
Right now, Qin Wentian was someone who could even kill ancient emperors. He Jiang Zihua, no matter how high his talent is, was merely an immortal emperor. In any case, was his talent higher than Qin Wentian? Since Qin Wentian said he wasn’t worthy, he naturally wouldn’t even have the qualifications to refute it.
Jiang Zihua coldly snorted. So what if Qin Wentian was an empyrean? Being humiliated publicly like this caused Jiang Zihua’s expression to turn extremely ugly. He coldly spoke, “You are truly different. Now, you already start to look down on your peers of your generation?”
Qin Wentian’s eyes stared at Jiang Zihua, his terrifying gaze penetrated through everything. At this moment, Jiang Zihua only felt himself entering a strange world, it was like everything in his mind was seen through by Qin Wentian.
“Back then in the City of Ancient Emperors, are you the one who exposed me when I took on the identity as the Saber-Sword Immortal King?” Qin Wentian’s voice thundered through Jiang Zihua’s mind, causing his eyes to narrow. His expression changed, “Are you provoking me?”
“Hmph.” Qin Wentian coldly snorted, rumbling Jiang Zihua’s mind. Earlier, every micro-change to Jiang Zihua’s expression was seen clearly by Qin Wentian. His eyes of truth were able to see past all lies and illusions. Seems like what he speculated was correct. The person who exposed his identity was Jiang Zihua.
The Jiang Clan had secret arts that enabled them to intercept immortal sense transmissions of others. When he was the Saber-Sword Immortal King, his identity was exposed and revealed. Back then after thinking about it for a long time, he already suspected it was Jiang Zihua who did so.
“I’m taking his life.” Qin Wentian didn’t stare at Jiang Zihua, he was looking at the three empyreans of the Jiang Clan instead. There was truly no need for him to look at Jiang Zihua. Given his current status and cultivation base, it would take a thought from him to finish Jiang Zihua off. If it wasn’t for the fact that the Jiang Clan had empyreans here, he would have already done so.
“How brazen.” An elder from the Jiang Clan icily spoke. “Don’t go too far.”
“Qin Wentian, on what grounds are you doing this?” Jiang Zihua coldly stared at Qin Wentian. What sort of character was he? He was one of the most supreme geniuses of the Jiang Clan and had a high chance of becoming the future clan leader. However, he was humiliated like this here.
“On the grounds that you attempted to harm my life when we were back in the City of Ancient Emperors.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“Who can prove that the one who revealed your identity was me?” Jiang Zihua icily spoke.
“There’s no need for proof. You know you are him, and I’m sure I’m right. That is already enough.” Qin Wentian tyrannically replied!
