Chapter 1358: House Arrest
“Ancient Emperor!” Beiming Youhuang’s eyes flashed. After that, she turned her eyes in Beiming Nongyue’s direction as she asked, “Nongyue, what are you doing together with him?”
“Him?” Beiming Nongyue’s gaze froze. Everyone turned their attention over only to see Beiming Youhuang was looking at Qin Wentian, who was beside Beiming Nongyue. She wasn’t looking at Li Yufeng, but was looking at Qin Wentian.
“Brother Qin?” Beiming Nongyue asked.
“Why did you appear within my Darknorth Royal Palace?” Beiming Youhuang stared at Qin Wentian.
“Elder sis, Brother Qin is a friend of mine.” Beiming Nongyue explained.
“Nongyue is acting to wilful, bringing any random person into our royal palace. This banquet was held to welcome Youhuang’s glorious return, are your friends even qualified to be here?” The prince earlier didn’t forget to toss a stone at Beiming Nongyue when she was down.
“Why don’t my friends have the qualifications?” Beiming Nongyue was extremely unhappy.
“Who knows what sort of lowly characters they are. They should have eyes and not overestimate themselves.” That prince coldly snorted.
“Even if he is a lowly character, he is unquestionably stronger than you.” Beiming Youhuang glanced at that prince, causing that prince to freeze. He had an unsightly expression as he stared at Beiming Youhuang. He can talk back to Beiming Nongyue but now, this half sister of his Beiming Youhuang, was sitting in the position of honor beside their royal father. He didn’t dare to retort and could only snort unhappily.
“You are unwilling to accept this?” Beiming Youhuang’s countenance was cold. “The first time I met him, he was only at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. Not even a hundred years have passed, I met him once more at the opening of the sacred academy and at that time, he was already in the immortal-foundation realm. Now, he’s already an immortal king. What about you? From Celestial Phenomenon to the immortal king realm, how long did you take?”
The people in the surroundings all drew in a deep breath as they stared with shock at Qin Wentian. They didn’t think that a random friend of Beiming Nongyue would actually be so impressive and was such a young immortal king.
Taking a hundred years to break into immortality from Celestial Phenomenon. And now, he was already at the immortal king realm. What sort of cultivation speed was this?
Many people were staring at Beiming Youhuang. The cultivation speed of this Qin Wentian seemed even faster compared to her.
“You can’t even get in the sacred academy and you even have the face to make remarks here? Why don’t you put more effort into your cultivation?” Beiming Youhuang wasn’t polite at all as she continued to berate him. The prince’s expression grew incredibly ugly. He was about to reply but the Darknorth Immortal Emperor interrupted, “Youhuang is right. You should put more effort into cultivation, why are you wasting time on such a minor matter?”
That prince instantly paled, his temper was completely gone as he nodded, “Yes, Father.”
However, the hatred in his heart for Beiming Youhuang deepened. But in that exchange of words earlier, his image and status had already plummeted immensely.
“Qin Wentian, could you be the fellow who caused an emperor war in the eastern regions? Ten plus years ago, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor announced that he would be marrying off his daughter Princess Qing`er, to a young man named Qin Wentian. Are you him?” At this moment, somebody suddenly felt that the name Qin Wentian was extremely familiar when Beiming Nongyue introduced him. Right now, when Beiming Youhuang said all of this, he suddenly recalled about this matter.
“Oh?” The Darknorth Immortal Emperor suddenly had an expression of interest on his face. This friend of Nongyue actually had such a grand background, and even caused an emperor war in the eastern regions. Even he had heard of this young fellow who caused the first adjudication battle of this era.
To think that the main character of that commotion was currently at this banquet and he was so young and with such a terrifying cultivation speed. Even the Evergreen Immortal Emperor approved of him, and he became his son-in-law.
“You came here for the Darknorth Immortal Mountain, right? Did you break through in there?” Beiming Youhuang’s beautiful eyes stared at Qin Wentian as she asked. Qin Wentian glanced at this supreme beauty, he only felt a sense of danger. This woman was too cold, lofty and seemed to have no emotions despite her fair face was so stiflingly beautiful.
She actually easily guessed where Qin Wentian had broken through to the immortal king realm. Qin Wentian felt that encountering her here would bring him nothing but endless trouble.
“Princess Youhuang is wise, I did indeed break through to immortal king within the Darknorth Immortal Mountain.” Qin Wentian nodded.
“Back then you obstructed me from getting an inheritance, how do you explain that?” Beiming Youhuang coldly stared at her. Only then did everyone realize that Princess Youhuang was acquainted with this young man. Not only that, they seemed to have a conflict between them.
“It has been so many years, Princess Youhuang has already entered the immortal emperor realm. Why is there still a need to bother about the conflict back then? If I had offended princess, Qin Wentian is willing to apologize.” Qin Wentian replied.
“I naturally wouldn’t bother about that. Failing to obtain the inheritance is my problem. But since you came here today, many things can easily be settled.” Beiming Youhuang coldly spoke, causing Qin Wentian’s expressions to change. Was Beiming Youhuang planning to do something to him?
“Princess Youhuang, what do you intend to do?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Where’s the demonic beast that is always by your side? Also, you should have the ultimate technique of Ancient Emperor Yi, God’s Hand, with you, right?” Beiming Youhuang spoke.
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed as a look of unhappiness could be seen. “Is this how the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty treats their guests?”
“Elder sis, he is a friend whom I invited.” Beiming Nongyue spoke unhappily.
“Nongyue, this matter has nothing to do with you.” The voice of Beiming Youhuang was as calm as ever.
“I’m sure everyone has heard about the emperor war in the eastern regions. If it was I, Qin, who had first offended the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty, there’s nothing I can say. However, since I’m being invited here as a guest, and if something happened, I’m sure plenty of powers in the eastern regions wouldn’t be willing to close one eye. Why must princess be so stubborn with regards to matters of the past?” Qin Wentian’s voice also turned cold.
“I won’t do anything to you, I just want to get something back. You won’t even lose a strand of your hair. In addition, I will invite you to my princess residence as a guest.” Beiming Youhuang calmly spoke, Qin Wentian was completely speechless.
This woman was simply incomprehensible. In her eyes, there was only cultivation.
“Everyone, please don’t mind me, just continue enjoying the banquet. After the banquet concludes, I will invite him to be my guest.” Beiming Youhuang acted like nothing had happened. Everyone smiled, also pretending that nothing had ever happened. Even the Darknorth Immortal Emperor pretended as well. When Qin Wentian saw this, he wanted to cry but there were no tears.
These major characters of the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty were simply a bunch of hooligans.
“Youhuang, look at the young man beside your younger sister. She said that he is her boyfriend. What do you think of this?” The Darknorth Immortal Emperor suddenly turned to Beiming Youhuang.
“It’s tough to escape the entrapment of emotions. It’s fine as long as one doesn’t sink into it, allowing their emotions to influence their cultivation. Nongyue, you should know control. But this matter is after all your own, you have to walk your own path. We can’t walk it for you.” Beiming Youhuang calmly spoke, reminding her younger sister. However, she wouldn’t interfere too much with her younger sister’s decision.
As for whether she approved of it or not, the current Li Yufeng clearly wasn’t qualified enough. Being able to not reject it outright, was already considered very polite of Beiming Youhuang.
“Oh.” Beiming Nongyue was a little unhappy. She shot an apologetic glance at Qin Wentian. For matters her elder sis has decided, she had no power to obstruct them. However, she would observe her elder sister so Beiming Youhuang wouldn’t be able to do anything much to Qin Wentian.
“Brother Qin, if there’s a chance, I will secretly let you go. Today, I’m truly sorry to have implicated you.” Beiming Nongyue transmitted her voice over.
“We can’t blame you for this matter. In any case, your elder sis said it herself that I wouldn’t even lose a strand of my hair. I can only blame my own ill luck.” Qin Wentian didn’t really mind it.
In the banquet, praises to Beiming Youhuang naturally couldn’t be avoided as she was the main lead today. Occasionally, there would be people noticing Qin Wentian and Li Yufeng. These two fellows were both extraordinary. This was especially so for Qin Wentian, he also created a miracle being such a young immortal king.
After the banquet ended, Beiming Youhuang spoke to her father, “Royal father, I’ve cultivated for many years in the sacred academy. I should take some time to solidify my foundations, hence I will be returning to my residence first.”
“Mhm, you should do so.” The Darknorth Immortal Emperor naturally wouldn’t disagree.
“Qin Wentian, come with me to my residence.” Beiming Youhuang spoke to Qin Wentian, her tone was like ice. The simple white robes she was wearing couldn’t mask her magnificence. Regardless of her face or her figure, both were perfect.
“Since Princess Youhuang has issued an invitation, I will naturally comply.” Qin Wentian spoke. In the royal palace, how could he reject it?
“I will go as well.” Beiming Nongyue spoke.
“Princess Nongyue, it’s fine. I believe Princess Youhuang wouldn’t do anything to me.” Qin Wentian glanced at Zhiyin. Beiming Nongyue’s beautiful eyes flickered before she nodded, “Elder sis, I believe you won’t do anything to my friend. If not, I will never forgive you.”
“Let’s go.” Beiming Youhuang glanced at her younger sister before she stepped out. Qin Wentian smiled to Zhiyin, “Zhiyin, take care of yourself in the future.”
“I…” Zhiyin was somewhat worried.
“I will arrange a mentor for Miss Zhiyin, Brother Qin, there’s no need to worry. In the future, you can pay us a visit.” Beiming Nongyue spoke. She then continued, “Is Miss Zhiyin okay with this?”
“Many thanks Princess.” Zhiyin nodded lightly. This time around, she didn’t reject it.
Qin Wentian gave a carefree laugh and followed after Beiming Youhuang.
Beiming Youhuang’s princess residence was very quiet and the environment extremely beautiful. There actually was no one here, not even serving maids or guards. Most probably, this has something to do with her personality.
“You are living here alone in such a big space?” Qin Wentian curiously asked.
“Isn’t it good that there’s no one to disturb my cultivation?” Beiming Youhuang stared at Qin Wentian. “Are you not worried at all?”
“Princess Youhuang has already promised that I won’t even lose a strand of my hair, why do I need to worry? In addition, given such a beautiful environment and being able to interact with the number one supreme beauty of your dynasty, how many people would wish that they were in my shoes?” Qin Wentian joked, his words causing Beiming Youhuang to stare coldly at him.
“You are truly audacious, how dare you speak to me this way.” Beiming Nongyue spoke.
“I’m only speaking the truth. A maiden like Princess Youhuang, truly makes my heart fonder the longer I look at you.” Qin Wentian continued. Since he couldn’t beat her in a fight, he would tease her a little. This can also be considered revenge for the house arrest.
“Let’s hope you can continue acting this way.” Beiming Youhuang suddenly flashed a brilliant smile at Qin Wentian. This smile was beautiful to the extreme, causing Qin Wentian to be somewhat dazed. However, there seemed to be something behind her smile.
“What is this female demon planning?” Qin Wentian mused silently, he told himself that he must never be tempted by her beauty.
