Chapter 1698: Short-term Glory
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
In the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, the auras from the three empyreans were extremely frightening. Qin Wentian, he actually dared to invade the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
“Go!” The eyes of those three radiated killing intent as their law origins manifested around them. After that, one of them opened up the spatial pathway leading to the Heavenly Talisman Realm but before they could step into it, a spatial gate opened near them as ancient tree vines shot over, wrapped around tens of immortal emperors, appearing before them. Behind the vines, Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu stepped out.
Numerous figures soared into the air, the people of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect felt their hearts trembling when they saw this. Qin Wentian actually killed his way here. Not only him alone, the other person beside him was Hua Taixu, the supreme genius with the title of the Samsara Great Emperor, Hua Taixu.
“Traitor, how dare you!” The three empyreans coldly stared at Qin Wentian, their voices were like frost.
“I truly didn’t wish to do this but since you guys want to force me, I can only take action.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke. Hua Taixu didn’t reply. His gaze was extremely terrifying, his pupils replaced with samsara vortexes. In an instant, the three empyreans felt themselves being pulled in and trapped in those vortexes, unable to extricate themselves.
“Careful!” Their expressions changed as their consciousnesses were trapped. In their minds, the scenes flashing past were out of their control but their reactions were extremely quick. One of the empyreans started to glow with boundless runic light. A golden screen of light suddenly manifested, intersecting with the runic light, forming a shield of law’s origin before them, Qin Wentian’s palm slammed into the golden screen of light, shattering it but it bought enough time for the three empyreans to struggle free as they respectively flew towards different directions, separating themselves.
“Kill the one in the center.” Hua Taixu silently transmitted his voice to Qin Wentian. His samsara eyes locked on to the empyrean in the center. It was the empyrean that had manifested the law’s origin shield. Boundless light radiated from that person but he discovered that he was drawn into a world of endless samsara by Hua Taixu’s eyes.
“Bang!” Hua Taixu stabbed out with his spear. The law origin shield spun about and was knocked away and Qin Wentian directly seized the opportunity and appeared before this man. Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu’s teamwork was perfect, so quick that the others couldn’t react.
The two other empyreans at the side were also extraordinary characters. One of them grabbed out in the air and Qin Wentian immediately felt a heavy pressure pressing down on him, making him unable to move. That terrifying pressure continued to bore down on him while the other empyrean wielded a long spear that crackled with the power of lightning and thunder. The skies instantly turned dark as rumbling noises filled the air. The spear in his hands shot out towards Qin Wentian, leaving behind a trail of violet light that was compressed to the extreme. If this spear pierced Qin Wentian, the thunderous energies within would cause Qin Wentian’s body to explode.
Everyone involved in the battle were empyreans, no one was a weakling. The cooperation between the two was also extremely perfect. There was no need to intentionally do anything to compensate for the other, everything flowed together perfectly.
Hua Taixu was still engaging with the empyrean in the center, making sure that the empyrean had no way to escape his world of samsara formed by his eye technique.
Qin Wentian was unable to move due to the effect of the gravity laws and an empyrean-powered spear was launched his way with shocking might. With an intention of will, his demon sword appeared before him, emitting a long and sharp screech as it transformed into a great roc. The source origin of the laws of sword was channelled into it by Qin Wentian. The great roc spread its wings, blocking the area before Qin Wentian and as its wings closed in, it enveloped the space before it directly within.
“KACHA!” The powerful energies in the spar caused the roc’s wings to explode. Remnants of thunder and lightning energy interweaved, like divine lightning from the nine heavens that desired to destroy everything. From this scene, one could very well imagine what would happen if the spear hit Qin Wentian. But at this instant, the remnants of explosive energies were blocked by the demon sword, negating a huge amount of it.
Everything happened too quickly, in the time a spark took to fly off a flint. A buddha dharma body projection appeared in front of Qin Wentian, its multitude of arms extended forth, unleashing attacks, completely wiping out the remnant energies and also causing countless gigantic palm imprints to converge into one as it slammed towards the empyrean in the center that was trapped by the world of samsara. The experts of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect watched with shock as the gigantic palm imprint blasted into the body of that empyrean. A thunderous boom echoed as the entire space here trembled.
That empyrean, died instantly.
At this moment, the hearts of countless people shuddered. From Hua Taixu and Qin Wentian coming here to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect after they invaded the Heavenly Talisman Realm, the battle erupted in an instant. The attacks launched were all too swift and in a few moments, one of the empyreans was already killed by Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu. Also, this was a scenario where three empyreans were fighting against two.
They couldn’t help but to think about the fourth empyrean that remained behind in the Heavenly Talisman Realm to guard there. He must have also already been killed, right? Under the joint-efforts of three empyreans against two, one of the three empyreans was actually killed. In that case, given the fact that the empyrean in the Heavenly Talisman Realm was acting alone against the two of them, how could he not die?
Because Qin Wentian had once killed an empyrean in the Evergreen Immortal Empire, he became known as the number one expert of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. He was truly terrifying indeed.
However, even the Samsara Emperor Hua Taixu had also stepped into the legendary level and was actually so powerful. This caused everyone in the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect to be filled with shock.
The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord had also arrived. When he saw Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu killing their way over, his eyes gleamed with sharpness. Ultimately, the thin balance had ruptured. Actually, he didn’t wish to see this. Back then when the Heavenly Talisman Realm used Jun Mengchen and Bai Wuya to threaten Qin Wentian, he already knew that Qin Wentian would make a move against the Heavenly Talisman Realm for sure. Given Qin Wentian’s personality, how could he endure this? Even if his opponent is the Heavenly Talisman Realm, he would still go all out because the other party had already touched his bottom line.
In truth, the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord could understand Qin Wentian’s current emotions. Actually, he didn’t want to start a war with the Evergreen Immortal Empire but he had no choice but to do so. He simply understood this young man whom he watched grow up too well.
Hua Taixu turned his eyes towards the empyrean that was proficient in the gravity laws. He was also under great pressure and found it hard to move. However, his eye techniques were capable of causing someone to be trapped with just a single glance. The two of them were currently in a confrontation in the air.
After Qin Wentian killed one of the empyreans, he faced off against the empyrean that was proficient in lightning laws. Brandishing the demon sword in his hand, the sword itself was like a great roc, spreading its wings, wanting to soar up high in the skies. When Qin Wentian infused his energy from the source origin of laws into it, the demon sword desired to break through the dome of the heavens, filling the air with countless roc shadows, each brimming with a fearsome sword intent as they clashed with the crackling lightning bolts.
“Qin Wentian, you are too rebellious. The Heavenly Talisman Realm will punish all traitors for sure.” The empyrean felt a little trepidation in his heart as there were already quite a few empyreans that died to Qin Wentian. He couldn’t help but to feel fear.
“Why must you force me?” Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed with killing intent. Since he had already acted, there was no way for him not to go all out. If not, the threat an empyrean represented was just too great. He might be able to handle empyreans but what about the Evergreen Immortal Empire? What about the Southern Phoenix Clan? What if this empyrean targets Qing`er and Qingcheng for revenge?
He was naturally clear that since he decided to act, he had to be ruthless enough to completely eliminate all threats, removing all future sources of trouble. At such a critical moment, his heart mustn’t grow soft. He also understood that although he did care about this ex-sect of his, resulting in the fact that other than killing empyreans, he didn’t kill anyone else, things would be different if the situation was reversed. His sect took him as a traitor and they also wanted to conquer the immortal realms. If they had a chance to act, they would surely kill him for sure. After they dominated the world, those who allied themselves with him would surely be hunted down.
Hence, there was basically no need to choose at all.
The demon sword hummed shrilly, another powerful gigantic great roc manifested, gleaming with radiance from his laws of light and boundless sword intent from his laws of sword, rushing towards his opponent. Qin Wentian slowly stepped forth, with every step he took, the amount of might he radiated increased.
“BOOM!” A powerful gravity bore down on Qin Wentian, disrupting him, making it tough for him to continue to move forward. Spatial light flashed, his body vanished completely and at the same instant, Hua Taixu’s samsara eyes erupted forth with a terrifying light, causing the expression of the empyrean that was using the source origin of gravity laws to contort. Qin Wentian wanted to kill him.
With a piercing sound, sword light flared. The great roc arced through the skies, as fresh blood splashed through the air. That empyrean’s body was lacerated into pieces before turning into nothingness by the immense sword intent of the great roc.
The empyrean proficient in lightning laws, that faced against Qin Wentian earlier, felt his countenance pale. He rapidly retreated, releasing his source origin of laws, wanting to open up the pathway to the Heavenly Talisman Realm to escape. Out of the three empyreans here, two were already killed. He knew that if he didn’t flee, there would be no suspense to the situation, he would die for sure.
How could Qin Wentian allow him to leave? Swishing sounds rang out as countless vines appeared. He stepped through a spatial gate along with his vines, and the vines directly wrapped around his opponent. However, his opponent’s body suddenly erupted with a fearsome destructive thunderous light, causing the vines to disintegrate.
The radiance and sword intent of Qin Wentian interweaved together as they flowed forwards, targeting his opponent. That empyrean’s body was protected by his law origin but the layer of protection disintegrated together with the radiance when they came into contact. At this moment, a sharp whistling sound echoed out as the demon sword shot through the skies. In a situation where it was impossible for the empyrean to defend, the demon sword directly opened up a hole and tunnelled through his body. An empyrean with no heart to battle and only wanted to flee…right at the start, his combat prowess already dwindled drastically. Also, he had his back facing Qin Wentian. How could he still survive?
His corpse continued to descend through the air. In this instant, the gazes of everyone in the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect turned to that corpse falling through the air as their hearts trembled violently.
The three powerful empyreans were all killed, not even one remained. Most probably, the empyrean that remained in the Heavenly Talisman Realm to guard it had also died as well. Initially, the supposed strongest supreme power, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect who had four empyreans, actually collapsed in an instant, becoming history in this chaotic world, leaving behind only a period of short-term glory.
What they didn’t expect was that the person who ended this period of glory for them, was none other than an ex-disciple from their very own sect, the supreme genius that was heavily nurtured by the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, Qin Wentian.
In the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, there were many people that were acquainted with Qin Wentian. The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, Taishan Immortal King, Saberlord of Death, Zi Qingxuan and the others…all of them were staring at Qin Wentian now, their hearts numbed from shock. However, a moment later, they also felt a sense of relief. It has finally ended, they no longer needed to bear this burden in their hearts and do things that they weren’t willing to do!
