Chapter 1233: Abandoned
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The devil saber contained a terrifying corrosion energy, shimmering with a bloodthirsty light, frenziedly devouring the energy in the layers of light. As a protector under the devil general, there was no need to doubt the strength of this knight at all.
Qin Wentian’s fiendgod-like body was circulating ancient runic characters wildly. When the devil saber slashed onto him, a dazzling immortal light burst out from the runes, the devil saber was forcibly halted. It had no way to continue slashing through.
“Huh?” The devil expert narrowed his eyes. What a powerful defense.
The defense of this fleshly body was many times more terrifying compared to the bodies of numerous devil cultivators.
“BOOM!” An even more powerful devil might erupted out. Numerous saber shadows floated above the opponent’s devil-foundation and all of them cleaved down at the same instant, engulfing this space completely,
A divine glow circulated around Qin Wentian. He lifted his palm and activated God’s Hand, augmenting several ancient characters of suppression that blasted towards the space engulfed by the numerous devil sabers as he rushed his opponent directly.
“Bzz!” His opponent blasted out with both palms as millions of devil saber shadows superimposed and stacked together, fusing into one. At this instant, a black-colored devil light slashed down from the sky, erupting forth with the might of a million sabers, aiming for Qin Wentian’s head.
Qin Wentian’s God’s Hand clashed against the terrifying light as destructive energies madly ravaged the surroundings. Lu Xuejia radiated an intense black sword light, enveloping her protectively within, defending her against the aftershocks.
She had already turned about and was observing the battle, with traces of excitement in her eyes.
This Qin Wentian was a seventh-level immortal from the immortal realms, yet his combat prowess was far above her expectations.
Both of their attacks clashed again, causing tearing sounds to ring out in the air. Qin Wentian then lifted his left palm, and under the gaze of that devil expert, he stabbed his finger forward. In an instant, boundless sword might gushed forth. That devil-cultivator retracted one of his palms and blasted it outwards in defense. However at this moment, the streams of sword might gushing forth from Qin Wentian all transformed into numerous great rocs, wanting to rip everything apart.
“Puchi…” A light sound echoed out. A sword mark appeared on the center of the devil expert’s brows. His gaze froze there and a moment later, the boundlessly vast sword intent of Qin Wentian directly penetrated through him, finishing him off directly. Even in death, the expression of terror on his face couldn’t be wiped away.
This battle, he actually was defeated and killed on the spot.
There wasn’t too much of a change to Lu Xuejia’s expression. She glanced at her other protectors and calmly spoke, “Clean this mess up.”
As the sound of her voice faded, a protector knight walked out and dragged the corpse away. Another protector stared at Qin Wentian with fear and trepidation in his gaze.
“From now on, you will replace him, and become a protector knight under me.” Lu Xuejia’s gaze landed on Qin Wentian.
“Many thanks to the devil general.” Qin Wentian nodded, casting another glance at Lu Xuejia.
“However, this doesn’t mean that I like your gaze. Your eyes better be more honest and not roam about needlessly. If not, I dare not guarantee that I won’t dig your eyes out myself.” Lu Xuejia’s calm voice contained a hint of coldness. After that, she continued on her way as she spoke, “Follow me to the devil king palace.”
After that, she took a step forward while the devil knight protectors all followed after her.
Qin Wentian didn’t mind as a smile appeared on his face, following after Lu Xuejia, as they headed towards the direction where the residence of the Blackstone Devil King was at.
Outside the luxurious devil king palace erected in the center of the sect, there was an immense hall where many devil cultivators gathered. Each and every one of the devil cultivators had terrifying auras and they were all from different camps.
Lu Xuejia led Qin Wentian and the other protector knights over. When she arrived, the eyes of many landed on her. As a beautiful female devil general, Lu Xuejia would naturally attract plenty of attention.
However, the gazes of some were filled with wariness, but there were also others that were filled with unrestrained disdain.
“Lu Xuejia, you are getting more and more beautiful.” A gaze landed on Lu Xuejia’s body, gleaming lasciviously, not masking the lust in his eyes at all. His eyes roamed freely, wandering around her body, and those lustful eyes seemed as though that figure wanted to swallow her up.
Lu Xuejia had an expression of disgust as she coldly glanced at that person. That person was none other than the eighth-ranked devil general Situ. He was extremely lecherous but also immensely powerful.
Lu Xuejia didn’t doubt in the slightest that if an opportunity presented itself, Situ would definitely ravaged her harshly. Hence, she had to get stronger, becoming even more powerful compared to him.
There were no rules in the devil sect, strength was the only law.
“The force in your gaze is getting more and more tasty.” Situ licked his lips, his eyes gleaming with a demonic light. He wanted a strong woman like Lu Xuejia for a very long time. It would definitely be more tasty compared to those compliant women.
“One of these days, I will kill you.” Lu Xuejia stared at Situ as she spoke.
“Dying in the embrace of a beauty? That sounds like a worthwhile death. If you let me have one night with you, I will let you kill me okay?” Situ laughed uproariously, not bothering to hide his words. All the devil generals here didn’t really have any reaction to his words, as though they couldn’t care less about their conversation at all. It was like this was extremely normal.
Also among the other devil generals, there would faintly be enmity and battle intent being exuded when they stared at each other.
But at this moment, everyone fell into silence. From afar, a group of experts walked over. The man in the lead was majestic and imposing, he was the third-ranked devil general, Zong Yan, someone who had terrifying strength.
For the top three generals, there was no need to doubt that they were the strongest three below the four devil lords. Their strength was fearsome to the extreme.
The eyes of this imposing figure were ice-cold, and everyone fell into silence when his gaze glanced past them. When Qin Wentian saw him, his eyes narrowed. However, the reason for this wasn’t because of Zong Yan, but was because of an expert behind Zong Yan.
That expert was none other than one of the participants of the adjudication battle. However, this expert was on the enemy’s side.
There were a total of two hundred participants for the adjudication battle, a hundred on each side. Qin Wentian naturally remembered each of his enemies carefully. This expert was none other than one of them and as expected, he was not the only one who arrived on this devil island.
One of his enemies did so as well and his intentions were the same, wanting to borrow the strength of the strongest force on this devil island, the Blackstone Devil Sect. If this was the case, it would undoubtedly be easier and much more convenient to do things in the future.
That expert also saw Qin Wentian. Both of their gazes clashed in mid-air, both filled with an intense killing intent.
This man was none other than an elite chosen by the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire. He was an expert at the peak of immortal-foundation and could already control a trace of immortal-king might. He had already spent a thousand years at the peak of the immortal-foundation realm, but he couldn’t break through to the other side of the gate. But even so, in the immortal foundation realm, there was no doubt that his strength was extremely terrifying.
Each and every elite, chosen by the Skymist Alliance, was undoubtedly extremely powerful.
The name of this person was Huang Hanling, he was also of the royal clan but he couldn’t be considered a core member.
“How coincidental.” Huang Hanling’s eyes flashed with a terrifying light. To think Qin Wentian was actually here. Although he, Huang Hanling, did not enter the sacred academy, he had also heard of Qin Wentian’s name. Qin Wentian was number one on the to-be-killed list from his empire.
Since Qin Wentian was here as well, he might as well use this opportunity to take his life.
And just so nicely, the devil ranking battles would be an excellent opportunity to do so.
“You know him?” Zong Yan could sense Huang Hanling’s gaze.
Huang Hanling was from the immortal realms, he naturally knew of Qin Wentian’s appearance. Zong Yan tested Huang Hanling’s strength before and it was extremely powerful, enough to become a devil general should he wish to. This time, he promised that he would help Huang Hanling to become one of the twenty-eight devil generals if Huang Hanling helped him in the ranking battles, allowing him to govern a devil palace in the future.
“I know of him. In the future if we meet this man on the battlefield, I beseech general to kill him for me.” Huang Hanling spoke in a low voice.
“Fine.” Zong Yan nodded, glancing at Qin Wentian. That emotionless gaze of his clearly indicated that he didn’t treat Qin Wentian as a threat.
“What’s going on, there’s someone around Devil General Zong Yan who wants to kill you?” Lu Xuejia’s expression turned heavy, staring at Qin Wentian as she asked.
“Yup, I want to kill that guy too.” Qin Wentian replied.
Lu Xuejia furrowed her brows. She already received news that other than Qin Wentian, another immortal realm cultivator also entered their devil sect. Who would have thought that that person would have a death grudge with Qin Wentian.
If it was like that, there would be no problems. What was problematic was that that person was a protector of the devil general Zong Yan.
If she stood on opposing ends against the third-ranked devil general Zong Yan, let alone her wanting to advance forward, most probably her position as the ninth-ranked would even be hard to maintain.
“Since this is the case, from now on I will officially remove your position as a protector. There’s no longer a need for you to support me in the ranking battle. I will seek another guardian.” Lu Xuejia’s personality was straight-forward and decisive, directly choosing to give up on Qin Wentian.
There were no emotions to speak of in the devil sects. Since Qin Wentian’s existence would affect her, she would naturally choose to abandon him.
Lu Xuejia didn’t bother to mask her voice. Evidently, she wanted to tell Zong Yan this, she didn’t want the third-ranked general to have enmity towards her. She could instantly and directly abandon a protector knight before the battle. Lu Xuejia was truly a decisive individual.
Several devil generals had a trace of sympathy in their eyes when they glanced at Qin Wentian. How pitiful, being abandoned by Lu Xuejia just like that. In addition, no one would dare to take him in. In addition, as long as the devil general Zong Yan gave the order to kill him, Lu Xuejia definitely wouldn’t protect him.
When Huang Hanling heard the words spoken by Lu Xuejia, a cold smile appeared on his face. His mocking gaze turned to Qin Wentian, filled with provocation. This was the man that was the legend of the sacred academy?
“Sacred academy?” Huang Hanling coldly laughed in his heart. So what of it? Qin Wentian would still die here today.
Qin Wentian’s gaze abruptly turned cold. If he didn’t become a protector knight earlier, he wouldn’t even have known about the devil ranking battle here. If that was the case, he wouldn’t have felt anything. But it was this Lu Xuejia who told him to prepare for this battle, but she actually chose to abandon him simply because of the protector of Zong Yan had killing intent towards him? This undoubtedly caused Qin Wentian to be extremely dissatisfied and unhappy.
“If I’m abandoned by you, would I still be able to participate in this?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Since you are not a devil general nor a protector, you naturally wouldn’t be able to.” Lu Xuejia spoke.
“We haven’t even started the battle but since you are already so afraid of the opponent’s enmity, you have already lost.” Qin Wentian coldly stated!
