Chapter 1283: Forcing Old Xia Devil King onto the Path of Death
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
With the Fallen Devil Emperor on the island, ordinary matters naturally would be minor.
However today, when a terrifying army marched into the island, the devil cultivators who saw it all felt their hearts shaking. They could all sense that something major was going to happen.
Qin Wentian had fled the Fallen Devil Island and there were even three devil kings who attempted to hunt him down, yet all of them died. Right now, it was evident that his return wasn’t to pay his respects to the Fallen Devil Emperor. In that case, there was only one possibility – he was here for revenge,
Since they had entered the Fallen Devil Island, how could these soldiers not know of the Fallen Devil Emperor? And since they still came by, it only meant one thing. They weren’t afraid of the Fallen Devil Emperor.
The gazes of everyone turned to an expert who exuded an incomparable imposingness. He stood there, simply like a divine being, unexcelled in the world.
Was this person also a devil emperor?
Nobody knew, but most assuredly, they would all soon know.
This group of people sped towards the emperor palace of the Fallen Devil Emperor. And when they were close to it, the Fallen Devil Emperor suddenly felt an aura. As the chess piece in his hand landed, a crisp sound rang out as his brows furrowed.
“What’s the matter?” The Old Xia Devil King couldn’t help but ask when he saw the Fallen Devil Emperor furrowing his brows.
The Fallen Devil Emperor didn’t reply, but his gaze turned to the horizon as his terrifying devil sense swept out.
A moment later, the Fallen Devil Emperor stood up and faced a direction as his expression turned solemn.
“With me on the island, what could possibly happen?”
Seems like today, even if the Fallen Devil Emperor was here, a major thing was about to unfold.
“All devil kings gather now.” The Fallen Devil Emperor’s terrifying devil sense swept across his territory, causing great shock to countless people. The devil emperor actually issued an order personally. What was going on?
The expressions of the Old Xia Devil King also changed. He knew this old friend of his, and seeing the serious expression on his friend’s face, he instantly understood something major was about to happen.
“What’s going on exactly?” The Old Xia Devil King asked.
The Fallen Devil Emperor glanced at the Old Xia Devil King as a strange expression flashed in his eyes. “That little fellow named Qin Wentian, he has returned.”
“Qin Wentian?” The eyes of Old Xia Devil King flickered, did he came back to court death?
“He dares to return?”
“He came back with the Vast Sky Devil Emperor.” The Fallen Devil Emperor spoke again, causing Old Xia to freeze there. Ordinary people might not know what sort of person the Vast Sky Devil Emperor was. But he as an ancient devil king, as well as the old friend of the Fallen Devil Emperor, how could he not know of the devil emperor who ruled the Vast Sky Devil Region, a neighbouring region to the Fallen Devil Region?
Qin Wentian came with the Vast Sky Devil Emperor?
The expression of the Old Xia Devil King turned incomparably ugly. A devil-foundation character actually made a devil emperor follow him here?
This young brat should be someone from the immortal realms by right, how did he have a connection to the Vast Sky Devil Emperor?
Numerous devil kings gathered from all directions. That terrifying aura moved closer and closer, they could soon felt an overwhelming devil might from the army moving their way. When their devil senses swept out, the expressions on their faces could only be described with the word ‘fascinating.’
Qin Wentian, the young man who rejected the devil emperor’s reward because of unfairness actually returned so soon. Not only that, he even brought an army here.
“Let’s welcome our guests.” The Fallen Devil Emperor walked out. The group of devil kings all had solemn expressions as they followed after him.
The countenance of Old Xia turned extremely heavy. The Vast Sky Devil Emperor actually came by in person for the sake of a mere junior. No matter how outstanding the talent of the junior was, Old Xia had never thought of such a consequence. If the Vast Sky Devil Emperor declared war because of this incident, he, the Old Xia Devil King, would undoubtedly be a sinner of the Fallen Devil Region.
Not too long after, the terrifying army arrived, exuding waves of grandeur, their pressure sweeping across the sky, causing a stifling atmosphere. Other than Qin Wentian and a few others, everyone else was at the devil king level.
The spectators in the surroundings of the emperor palace, were all staring over from afar, feeling great waves rising in their hearts.
An army marched right to the emperor palace. Even the Fallen Devil Emperor came out personally, something major was definitely about to occur.
The devil kings around the Fallen Devil Emperor all turned their gazes onto Qin Wentian. This fellow…what charisma, when he rejected the Fallen Devil Emperor’s reward back then, everyone believed that he was finished, and would die for sure. In reality, three devil kings did attempt to hunt him down yet he still remained alive and even killed his pursuers. Now, he actually brought another devil emperor here, seeking his revenge.
One couldn’t say that this was a story of hot-bloodedness. Sadly, Qin Wentian was the only main lead here.
“Brother Vast Sky, I wonder why you are here at my Fallen Devil Region?” The Fallen Devil Emperor didn’t continue looking at Qin Wentian and turned his gaze to the Vast Sky Devil Emperor. He couldn’t understand, given the sort of existence the Vast Sky Devil Emperor was, how could he mobilize his army for the sake of a junior? No matter how outstanding the talent of the junior is, there was no way the Vast Sky Devil Emperor would give him such a large amount of face.
“Actually nothing much, I only heard that a junior was being bullied badly and hence, I came here to stand up for him.” The Vast Sky Devil Emperor casually spoke, his tone extremely carefree. The brows of the Fallen Devil Emperor twitched. If he was right, this Qin Wentian should be from the immortal realms and had no connections to the Vast Sky Devil Emperor. When did Qin Wentian ever become Vast Sky’s junior?
However, he didn’t say anything to refute that. He simply smiled, “That day at my birthday banquet, Qin Wentian’s performance was truly not bad. But after considering many aspects, I decided to reward him instead. To many people, this is undoubtedly an honor. To think that the personality of this little fellow would be so obstinate. However, since he is Brother Vast Sky’s junior, just tell me exactly what he wants. There’s no need to act out the show any longer.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed when he heard the Fallen Devil Emperor’s words. If he considered things from the perspective of the Fallen Devil Emperor, it truly wasn’t a great matter. He was only a little unfair to Qin Wentian but still chose to reward him. If it was others, they would definitely feel honored. Nobody would dare to reject it or like now, directly bringing an army to the doorstep of the Fallen Devil Emperor.
However, that small bit of injustice might be nothing much to the Fallen Devil Emperor. But to him, Qin Wentian, it was a matter of life and death.
This little bit of injustice could cause all his friends in the Fallen Devil Region to die. Once their identities were known, they would become the prey of Huang Shatian and the adjudication battle would be lost for sure.
He couldn’t afford to lose. Hence, he took the risk to meet with the Vast Sky Devil Emperor.
“To your Majesty, it’s only an insignificant thing because I, Qin Wentian, am just a minor and inconsequential character. However, a single command from your Majesty might force my friends to their end.” Qin Wentian spoke. “If I had lost the battle back then, I would have nothing to say. But, I didn’t lose.”
“As an insignificant character that couldn’t enter your eye, I rejected the reward which resulted in three devil kings hunting me down, narrowly costing my life. I know that the weak have no rights to speak. Back then, I merely rejected the reward. If I talked back to you, I might have already been killed. Hence, I can only invite Senior Vast Sky Devil Emperor to seek justice for me.”
“What justice do you want?” The Fallen Devil Emperor asked.
“Old Xia Devil King.” Qin Wentian’s gaze turned over, his eyes landing on Old Xia. “I wish to ask that back then in that battle, both me and Huang Shatian were injured. Old Chai and Duan Qianshan fought to a draw, and Xia Yuan didn’t even have any worthy battle achievements. Why did the top three consist of Huang Shatian, Old Chai and Xia Yuan while me and Duan Qianshan were not?”
The Old Xia Devil King frowned. If it was in the past, how would Qin Wentian have dared to question him? But today, Qin Wentian brought the Vast Sky Devil Emperor here. He didn’t know how to answer that question.
“I ruled it that way because of my own logic. You borrowed external power of a secret art, while Old Chai and Xia Yuan killed more people, using nothing but their own strength.” Old Xia Devil King replied.
“Old Xia Devil King, Xia Yuan is coincidentally here. Why don’t you tell him to come out and fight with me? If he is victorious, he will prove that your words are right, I should die instead of being alive. Senior Vast Sky Devil Emperor will absolutely not interfere in this. If he is defeated, I won’t kill Xia Yuan. But you, Old Xia Devil King, you have to pay with your life.”
“RUMBLE!” The eyes of Old Xia flashed with a fearsome coldness. How impudent was this? Wanting him to pay with his life?
“Even if I was biased back then, you want me to pay for that with my life?” The temper of Old Xia was extremely violent. Waves of anger could be felt radiating from him.
“A subordinate of yours attempted to hunt me down. I’m already giving you a chance by bringing out the suggestion of fighting with Xia Yuan.” Qin Wentian’s voice was ice cold. The eyes of the Fallen Devil Emperor were fixed on the Vast Sky Devil Emperor instead.
“Since you did it, don’t be so cowardly as to not even dare to admit it. Things will be settled according to what Qin Wentian said.” The Vast Sky Devil Emperor calmly spoke, making the final decision.
This fellow Qin Wentian truly knows what should and should not be done. He knew that it was impossible to kill the Fallen Devil Emperor and hence, he first chose to establish dominance using the Fallen Devil Emperor’s subordinate.
Today he came here to be the support and backing for Qin Wentian, wanting the Fallen Devil Emperor to compromise. No matter what, someone would have to be sacrificed for them to establish dominance.
“What if I disagree?” Old Xia coldly spoke.
“You’ve already done the deed. If you don’t have the courage to admit it, we will start a war right here and now.” The Vast Sky Devil Emperor replied back just as coldly.
A single sentence shocked the entire space.
“Old Xia Devil King, the seed of karma you planted now returns and you want the entire Fallen Devil Region to wipe your ass for you? Ridiculous, back then how awe-inspiring were you when you wanted the Fallen Devil Emperor to give you face?” Qin Wentian laughed coldly.
Today, the Old Xia Devil King was someone he had to kill for sure. He and Huang Shatian had an agreement of sorts and no matter from which angle he considered it from, it was still for the best to finish this devil king off.
The devil kings brought by the Fallen Devil Emperor all felt the formless tension in the atmosphere. Seems like Qin Wentian truly wished to force the Old Xia Devil King toward the path of death.
The spectators from afar felt their hearts shaking. Back then, the Old Xia Devil King did indeed use his identity as an old friend of the Fallen Devil Emperor to push things. Right now, Qin Wentian wanted his life in return.
Back then, how imposing was he? Borrowing the might of the devil emperor and his words were like the heaven’s will. But today, Qin Wentian brought another devil emperor here.
The countenance of the Fallen Devil Emperor was extremely unsightly. The Vast Sky Devil Emperor was forcing him. His meaning was clear, no matter if Old Xia agreed or didn’t agreed to Qin Wentian’s request, Old Xia would die today. It was impossible for Xia Yuan to win against Qin Wentian. Everyone who spectated the battle event on his birthday celebration was extremely clear about this fact.
In front of Old Xia, there was only the path to death. Unless…the Fallen Devil Emperor went all out and decided to open war!
