Qin Wentian continued on his way, with Bujie following him.
“Which one is the Apostle Hall?” Qin Wentian asked. Bujie pointed to a direction as Qin Wentian headed over there. He was very curious with regards to the Apostle Devil Hall. That mysterious young man in white who invited him, as well as the other peak immortal-realm geniuses, was from none other than this hall. What was his intention exactly?
As Qin Wentian entered the Apostle Devil Hall, he discovered that the people here was very little in number. So little that Qin Wentian couldn’t even see a single one when he entered. When he walked past the stone stairs, a huge hall appeared before him, yet there was no one at all in the surroundings.
“There are only a very few members of the Apostle Devil Hall?” Qin Wentian curiously glanced at Bujie who was beside him.
“There are very few apostles, hence the members of the Apostle Devil Hall are very limited. Also, these apostles always travel alone and they can easily choose guards or apprentices to serve them.” Bujie spoke. Qin Wentian bowed slightly to this place as he spoke, “Junior Qin Wentian pays his respect to seniors of the Apostle Devil Hall.”
“Bzz~” A gust of wind blew by as an old man appeared before Qin Wentian. He had a smile on his face as he stared at Qin Wentian.
“Senior.” Qin Wentian was somewhat shocked by the speed of this person. It was so fast that he didn’t even discover it until this old man appeared right before his eyes. It was highly possible that this ordinary-looking old man might be a devil emperor character.
“What are you doing here? The Apostle Devil Hall isn’t suited for you, go, go.” The old man waved his hand to Qin Wentian, directly asking him to leave, causing Qin Wentian to be astonished. He then stated, “Senior do you know why the white-robed young man asked us all to ascend the Devil Mountain?”
“How would I know?” The old man rolled his eyes. Qin Wentian shook his head and smiled bitterly, seems like he wouldn’t be able to find out anything here.
“Since this is the case, junior will take my leave.” Qin Wentian turned and departed. The old man smiled, staring at the back of Bujie and Qin Wentian while musing in his heart that the Devil Mountain would surely be extremely lively this time around.
After exiting the Apostle Devil Hall, Qin Wentian frowned. Out of the seven supreme halls, disregarding the Imperial Dragon and Apostle Devil Halls, the Judiciary and Darkness Devil Halls should be the same as well. He might not even be able to join them if he went there. In that case, only the Saint Devil Hall, Sky Devil Hall and Myriad Ancient Devil Hall remains.
The Myriad Ancient Devil Hall was the hall Bujie joined. The Saint Devil Hall was the hall created by the Myriad Devil Sovereign. It seems that he can only choose the Sky Devil Hall for now.
Hence, Qin Wentian turned and walked towards the direction of the Sky Devil Hall. The mysterious white-robed young man invited him here. Since he has ascended the mountain, he naturally has to take a look at the supreme devil halls here.
Before the Sky Devil Hall, a sinister cold intent permeated the atmosphere. The Sky Devil Hall fits the devil hall in Qin Wentian’s imagination. Devil qi filled the area, with guards guarding the perimeter. Nobody knew what was going on within the hall. But Qin Wentian guessed that the interior of the devil hall most probably wasn’t as small as it looked from the outside. There should be a dimension formation within.
If not, no matter how vast the Devil Mountain is, how can it contain over ten thousand devil halls?
The place of faith of the Myriad Devil Islands, the supreme seven halls were situated at the peak. Just a single hall at the peak was the size of the entire Devil Mountain. Only then could the majesticness of the supreme devil hall emanate forth. Hence, there was only a single possibility, there must be a dimension formation within each of the devil halls, making the space within much larger and vaster than one could see on the outside.
As he arrived, numerous cold auras gushed forth, causing Qin Wentian to furrow his brows. An instant later, he saw a group of devil experts walking out, and there were even devil kings within. The group of experts then stared at Qin Wentian and Bujie.
Bujie gulped and took half a step back, trying to hide behind Qin Wentian.
From the group, a figure walked over. Qin Wentian’s eyes instantly narrowed, gleaming with coldness.
This figure was similarly staring at Qin Wentian, his eyes flickering with killing intent.
“You are actually someone from the Devil Mountain.” Qin Wentian stared at the person before him which could be said to be an old friend of his. He was acquainted with this man before he broke through to the immortal-foundation realm. In the City of Ancient Emperors, this man was none other than the person who killed Zi Daoyang, the second ranker of the Immortal Ascension Rankings, Mo Xie!
Zi Daoyang was the son of a peak-level immortal emperor. At the moment of his death, many people were already speculating about Mo Xie’s identity, thinking that it was very possible that he came from an extraordinary power from the Myriad Devil Islands.
After that, in the sacred academy, Mo Xie once tried to devour Little Rascal.
Now, Qin Wentian finally knew of Mo Xie’s identity.
He was someone from the Devil Mountain, of the Sky Devil Hall and his status in the hall was extremely high.
“You actually came to the Devil Mountain.” Mo Xie’s voice was extremely cold. Actually back then in the City of Ancient Emperors, he had not ascended the Devil Mountain yet. By tempering himself in the City of Ancient Emperors, he was making preparations to ascend the mountain.
However although he did receive many benefits in the City of Ancient Emperors, there was also an inheritance which was seized by Qin Wentian from him.
Now, Qin Wentian of the immortal realms actually came to his territory, the place of faith for the entire Myriad Devil Islands.
“Everyone, I’m from the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall. I still have something to do so I will bid my farewells now.” Bujie clasped his hands. This Qin Wentian was truly a character, he actually had so many enemies on the Devil Mountain. First, it was Yulong Shengtu and now, it was the Sky Devil Hall.
An immortal cultivator being able to encounter two enemies from the devil halls at the peak? This should be a matter Qin Wentian can be proud of.
After speaking, Bujie instantly turned and left. Qin Wentian could only roll his eyes.
Sweeping his gaze over to the experts of the devil hall, there were truly many at the devil-foundation realm. However, as long as devil kings don’t interfere, Qin Wentian didn’t really fear them at all. He coldly stared at Mo Xie and spoke, “You won’t be able to do anything to people who managed to ascend the mountain.”
After that, he simply turned around and left.
“Follow him.” Mo Xie stared at Qin Wentian’s back, his deep eyes flashing with greed. The others on the Devil Mountain might not understand Qin Wentian, but he knew very well what sort of character he was. Qin Wentian himself, was just like a treasury filled with valuables.
Qin Wentian was incomparably depressed. Given how vast the Devil Mountain was, is there really no space for him to take a breather?
Many devil experts followed after him, making him even more depressed.
And on his way, Qin Wentian discovered even more experts coming from another direction. These people were experts brought by Yulong Shengtu. Yulong Shengtu’s eyes were like ice, and he similarly followed behind Qin Wentian, as though wanting to force Qin Wentian to get down the mountain.
As long as Qin Wentian left the mountain, his death would be inevitable.
“Everyone is from the seven supreme halls, don’t you find your behavior a little shameless?” Qin Wentian turned his head and spoke to those following him. However, those people didn’t reply and continue to quietly follow after.
“That damnable Bujie.” Qin Wentian cursed that death-fearing monk, he was simply shameless to the extreme. He actually messed up the routes up the mountain and brought him to proceed around wildly. He understood that there was no way he could exit the mountain now. Since he had ascended the mountain, passing the test of the Myriad Devil Sovereign, these people wouldn’t dare to kill him. But it was a different story if he exited the mountain.
Qin Wentian shrugged and continued wandering about on his own. He passed by many places and he suddenly stopped outside of a desolate looking devil hall.
This devil hall had an extremely dilpliated look, but it actually could be here at the peak of the Devil Mountain. Also when Qin Wentian glanced at the surroundings, he discovered that the location of this devil hall was at the center of the rest.
“Mhm?” The devil experts behind him all froze. What did this fellow intend to do?
At this moment, Qin Wentian actually proceeded forward, wanting to go in.
“HOW DARE YOU!” A thunderous voice rang out as a devil king radiated a terrifying might, instantly appearing before Qin Wentian, blocking his path.
Numerous experts then appeared, obstructing Qin Wentian as they coldly looked at him.
“An immortal cultivator dares to walk this path? We will show no mercy.” A powerful expert icily spoke.
Qin Wentian’s gaze flashed. Earlier, these devil experts weren’t so nervous. Why can’t he walk this path?
“Saint Devil Hall?” Qin Wentian’s eyes flickered, suddenly thinking of a possibility. This was the hall established by the Myriad Devil Sovereign himself.
He never expected that the paramount Saint Devil Hall was actually so diapiliated, the most inconspicuous one out of all the other halls.
These people didn’t want Qin Wentian to enter, but because of this, he wanted even more to enter. The Saint Devil Hall was initially a hall which he had neglected. But since these people were so nervous, they caused his desire to enter to grow even more intense instead.
“I’ve passed the test of the Myriad Devil Sovereign and since I’m here now, I’m naturally under the light exuded by the mighty sovereign. The places where you all can go, I can go as well. If you choose to stop me, that would be disrespect to the Myriad Devil Sovereign.” Qin Wentian lifted his foot and continued forward.
“Just try it.” An extremely cold aura gushed over. Those devil kings weren’t willing to step aside.
“Do you all need me to get the Judiciary Hall’s members over?” At this moment, a voice rang out. Qin Wentian turned his head and saw a group of experts speeding over. These people were actually led here by Bujie. Bujie cast a glance at Qin Wentian, as though trying to tell him hey, look how much of a brother I am, bringing reinforcements for you…
“What do you all mean by this? You are allowing an immortal cultivator to enter the sacred ground of our Devil Mountain?” A devil king icily spoke.
“Since he managed to ascend the mountain, he has already obtained the sovereign’s approval. No matter where he goes, no one should stop him.” An expert from the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall replied back just as coldly.
“Everyone knows the primogenitor of your Myriad Ancient Devil Hall is a traitor. You guys will naturally speak for an immortal cultivator.” An expert from the Sky Devil Hall spat. Instantly, the auras of experts from the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall gushed forth. Only now did Qin Wentian know that the founder of the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall was actually an immortal cultivator.
“Since you want to make things so ugly, let’s get the Judiciary Hall to decide.” An devil expert from the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall spoke as he turned and prepared to leave.
“Hold on.” A devil king interrupted. Those fellows at the Judiciary Devil Hall weren’t flexible at all, who knows what they will think.
“I really want to see how an immortal cultivator can enter the Saint Devil Hall!” The voice of that expert from the Sky Devil Hall was extremely cold but he did step aside, allowing Qin Wentian to enter.
Qin Wentian was somewhat bewildered, the Judiciary Devil Hall was in charge of judgement and punishment, and seemed to have an immense binding power with regards to the Sky Devil Hall.
