Chapter 1440: Terrifying Existence
Qin Wentian spoke. Numerous powerful auras flared, boring down on him. The him right now was like an unexcelled character, exuding magnificence through the generations, calmly staring at everyone here.
Before this, the guards of the City Lord Manor obstructed him from leaving. Now, he wanted the people here to beg him to leave.
How brazen and arrogant was this? However, Qin Wentian spoke it in a manner-of-fact tone, his voice so resolute that it could sever iron. He, who was suffering from heavy injuries, was being sent here to the City Lord Manor and had consumed a grand recovery pill. By rights, this wasn’t any major matter but since the competitive nature within the Snowdrift Sage Hall was so prevalent to the extent where Lu Yanxue wanted to use him as an excuse to suppress Chu Qingyi, he had to do something. They treated him like dirt, something to be killed whenever they want to kill.
How arrogant were they? How much contempt did they have for him?
Since this was the case, he will show them what a terrifying existence he can be.
At this moment, there was still no one from the City Lord Manor who understood what sort of existence Qin Wentian was. They were only bothered about Qin Wentian’s killing of Lu Zhanfei. All of the experts from the City Lord Manor stood up, their hearts boiling in anger.
“Zhanfei!” A middle-aged man screamed miserably. Lu Zhanfei was his son but was actually killed like that. Lu Zhanfei’s talent was extraordinary and would sooner or later enter the immortal king realm. However, he died today just like that. Not long ago, his son was still so imposing but now, he had turned into nothing but a corpse. How could he not be enraged? His killing intent now towered up into the sky.
“Immortal king realm.” Lu Yanxue’s voice was cold. Although Qin Wentian didn’t release his aura completely, she had already sensed that this was an aura only immortal kings would possess. The person Chu Qingyi was fond of was also an immortal king, and a young one at that.
Mo Xiaoxiao who was at the side had completely frozen. She had always believed that Qin Wentian was prying on them and was injured by her. Hence, she had never looked up to Qin Wentian before. Only at that moment when Qin Wentian killed Lu Zhanfei did she realize that her earlier conjectures about him might have been wrong.
“Capture him.” City Lord Lu icily spoke. He slammed his palm on the table, shattering it. His imposing eyes flashed with killing intent.
“Yes.” Many figures stepped out, exuding terrifying auras. Those guests who were here to offer their congratulations all still had a look of shock on their faces. They didn’t think that at the birthday celebration banquet of City Lord Lu, there would actually be someone who dared to kill a grandson of his like that. Truly audacious.
Just a few moments ago, they still thought that Qin Wentian wanted to use Lu Zhanfei’s life to bargain for his own. However, in the next moment, Lu Zhanfei was already killed by him. How decisive was this?
“Die.” Qin Wentian coldly spoke when he saw the numerous figures rushing him. In just an instant, a destructive sword might swept through the air, causing sounds of piercing to ring out as the experts rushing him were all slain. Qin Wentian continued standing there, not moving an inch from his original spot. He started a massacre at this birthday celebration.
“BANG!” City Lord Lu stomped the ground, causing fissures to appear. His anger surged forth like tidal waves. To think that there’s actually someone so brazen, disregarding everything and started a massacre at his territory, and on his birthday celebration too.
“This is an opportunity.” Wu Bufan transmitted his voice to his son, Wu Tianjiao. Wu Tianjiao’s eyes flashed and nodded slightly. This was indeed an opportunity for them to form good relations with the Snowdrift Sage Hall. With a roar, his killing intent erupted as his law domain appeared. He arrived before Qin Wentian, his law domain energy had already formed a terrifying storm, forcing many of the other experts back.
The storm completely surrounded Qin Wentian and at this moment, numerous golden spears materialized within the storm, shooting out rays of killing light, all of them aiming to pierce through Qin Wentian. With just a command, he would be able kill Qin Wentian.
“Wu Tianjiao, an immortal king expert.”
“When an immortal king acts, things are truly different.” The spectators sighed. Too powerful, Wu Tianjiao concentrated all his energy at the small area Qin Wentian was standing in, immensely increasing the explosive effect. Even the slightest bit of aftershock would be sufficient to kill immortal-foundation characters, the aura was so intense that cracks appeared on the ground around Qin Wentian.
Wu Tianjiao took another step forward, standing in the air, resembling an unexcelled divinity. He then calmly spoke, “Everyone, please retreat further back.”
As the sound of his voice faded, the experts continued to retreat, creating a battlefield for him and Qin Wentian. A fight on the level of immortal kings would produce shockwaves strong enough to extend to a very vast distance. At this moment, the manifestation of a golden divine spear in the form of an astral soul could be seen behind Wu Tianjiao. He was like the sovereign of every spear in this world.
“Wu Tianjiao is truly a peak-level genius, as expected of a personal disciple of an immortal emperor. Truly unparalleled.” Someone sighed with admiration.
“Seems like the Wu Clan’s hope of forming a marriage alliance with the Snowdrift Sage Hall might become a reality soon. He wants to use this chance to establish his dominance, indicating his goodwill towards the Snowdrift Sage Hall.” Someone mused.
“KILL!” As the sound of Wu Tianjiao’s voice rang out, the golden spears in his domain started streaking towards Qin Wentian, slamming into him. That terrifying speed made it as though Qin Wentian couldn’t even dodge it in time. Everyone was sure that Qin Wentian’s body would be drilled through.
“No!” Chu Qingyi’s eyes turned red. That destructive might was too terrifying. After all, this was an attack by an immortal king. Ever since the time after that stint at the sacred academy concluded, it had only been a few short years. Even if Qin Wentian managed to enter the immortal king realm depending on his outstanding talent, it was impossible for someone to block those exploding spears with the toughness of their body alone. The target of that violent attack would be dead for sure.
Lu Yao clenched her fists, her perspiration had already drenched her dress. She drew in a deep breath as she stared with worry at the scene in the battlefield.
“BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!” Deafening sounds rang out unceasingly. The golden spears radiated a blinding light, causing the spectators to be unable to open their eyes fully. All of them pierced towards Qin Wentian and exploded at the point of contact. However, under the stunned gazes of the crowd, Qin Wentian calmly stood there with his hands behind his back, unmovable, observing Wu Tianjiao with a sneer on his face.
“How is this possible?” Great waves rose in the hearts of everyone. Qin Wentian didn’t even blink at the ferocity of Wu Tianjiao’s attack. He merely stood there quietly as his body circulated with a gleaming light, allowing the attacks to freely land on him.
Wu Tianjiao’s expression was incredibly unsightly to behold. He had no way to believe what he just saw.
“Seems like you all still don’t understand.” Qin Wentian’s calm voice rang out. He stared at Wu Tianjiao who was in the air, his eyes flickered with disdain as he spoke, “You want a marriage alliance with the Snowdrift Sage Hall. It’s not wrong wanting to express goodwill and seize this good opportunity. However, your mistake was choosing me to use as a stepping stone. Wanting to use my life to please others? This is the most foolish choice you have ever made in your entire life.”
As the sound of his voice faded, he slammed out with a palm, manifesting a fearsome gigantic imprint. Wu Tianjiao howled as the golden spears shot out once more. However, these spears were easily shattered by the palm imprint. With a thunderous boom, the palm slammed into Wu Tianjiao and in just an instant, Wu Tianjiao, the unrivalled genius in everyone’s eyes, died directly from the overwhelming impact.
“Tianjiao!” Wu Bufan roared with anger and sorrow. He soared up in the air and wanted to act, but at the next moment, the giant palm imprint had already slammed down. He didn’t even have the time to protect his son’s corpse. Wu Tianjiao’s corpse had already completely disintegrated from impact of the second palm strike.
At this moment, Qin Wentian soared up into the air, radiating the powerful aura of a mid-stage immortal king that enveloped the entire City Lord Manor. Everyone stared up in shock at the young man in the air. This young man was actually so powerful.
Not long ago, the unrivalled genius in the eyes of everyone, Wu Tianjiao, was smacked to death with a single palm strike.
“Mid-stage immortal king.” Lu Yanxue glanced up in the air. Her robes fluttered with the wind as her own powerful aura gushed forth. Qin Wentian was actually also a mid-stage immortal king.
Mo Xiaoxiao who was at the side, had already gone completely pale. Mid-stage immortal king? The trash she had been referring to, the one she thought she injured, was actually a mid-stage immortal king. How ironic and face-smacking was this? She could feel a burning sensation on her cheeks.
No wonder Chu Qingyi had rejected so many suitors, only reacting differently towards this young man. So it turned out that this young man was actually so outstanding and extraordinary.
She had no idea that Chu Qingyi herself was also in shock now. Although she knew that Qin Wentian’s talent was outstanding and knew that he would definitely have grand achievements in the future for sure, she didn’t expect his cultivation to be so fast. He actually used such a short period of time and had broken through to the mid-stage of the immortal king realm.
Lu Yao also felt as though she was in a dream. Also, for Lu Zhan, as well as their entire faction, all of them were in a stunned state. Never in their wildest dreams did they expect that the person they mocked earlier was actually a mid-stage immortal king. If they knew this, let alone one grand recovery pill. Even if Qin Wentian ate two or three grand recovery pills, they wouldn’t have dared to say anything. Being able to save a mid-stage immortal king would definitely make the immortal king indebted to them. How could the debt of gratitude be compared to some mere medical pills? But now, sadly, there no longer was any gratitude. There was only hatred.
“For the sake of a single medical pill, I was actually treated like an insignificant insect by you people. You feel that you can kill me whenever you want. The life of I, Qin, am actually not even worth the price of a medical pill?” Qin Wentian coldly laughed, surveying the crowd. Only to see Lu Yanxue’s body slowly soaring up the air. Coldness radiated from her, terrifying to the extreme.
Wu Bufan similarly soared up into the air. A barrier of golden light surrounded him as his eyes flashed with an intense killing intent.
“Do you know who the person you just killed is?” Wu Bufan coldly spoke. “He was a personal disciple of the Martial Emperor.”
“Even if you are a mid-stage immortal king, even if you are from a major power, you will die here today for starting a massacre here and insulting my Snowdrift Sage Hall.” Lu Yanxue coldly spoke, directly bringing the name of her sect out. Because, she had already sensed that Qin Wentian should be an extraordinary individual from one of the peak powers in the immortal realms. Since she was the one who had insulted him first, she wanted to bring the name of her sect out and twist the story, saying it was Qin Wentian who insulted them first, to make things easier to handle.
However, how could Qin Wentian not understand her thinking? She still didn’t understand that Qin Wentian didn’t give a damn about her being a member of the Snowdrift Sage Hall.
Naturally, he also wouldn’t mind killing a disciple of an immortal emperor. For those that wanted his life, he would never show mercy to them.
“How regretful. Even at this moment, you guys still don’t understand.” Qin Wentian quietly spoke. As his voice faded, a whistling sound rang out. His figure was like a great roc, possessing unrivalled extreme speed. Wu Bufan’s expression drastically changed, he wanted to retreat but he couldn’t react in time. Qin Wentian’s palm slammed out, reinforced by God’s Hand, directly shattering the golden barrier of light around Wu Bufan. After that, a thunderous sound echoed out as a powerful giant palm grabbed hold of Wu Bufan’s body.
“A disciple of an immortal emperor? I can’t even remember how many of those I’ve killed. Even if Wu Tianjiao is the son of an immortal emperor, so what of it?” Qin Wentian mockingly laughed. “Since you all still cannot understand, let me help you all to fully comprehend who I am exactly.”
As the sound of his voice faded, he mercilessly laughed. Wu Bufan’s body was directly crushed into meat paste by that giant palm imprint. A powerful immortal king like Wu Bufan now had an expression of despair on his face. His eyes were filled with terror.
A son of an immortal emperor? So what of it?
What sort of existence was this person exactly?
At this moment, only now did the people here fully understand how terrifying an existence the young man standing in the air was!
