Chapter 1515: Unrivalled in the City of Ancient Emperors
Jiang Zihua and the reverend’s battle continued. Qin Wentian glanced at them. If this continued on, Bujie’s master might very well be killed by Jiang Zihua.
“Jiang Zihua, we all came from the immortal realms. Although we are contending against each other in the City of Ancient Emperors, victory and defeat are already clear. There’s no need to kill one another.” Qin Wentian spoke, instantly indicating his stance. His intent was clear, he wanted Jiang Zihua to stop attacking the reverend from the Askheart Temple.
Since this was Bujie’s master, he naturally couldn’t act like he didn’t see this,
“Brother Qin, I and the reverend received the inheritance from the same dao element.” Jiang Zihua calmly spoke. Qin Wentian naturally understood his meaning. Between the two, one must fall for sure.
“Even if it’s the same dao element, there’s no need to take his life.” Qin Wentian spoke. However, the reverend merely pressed his palms together, resembling an ancient mountain, as immovable as a mountain despite his injuries. He calmly stated, “Dao friend Qin, this old monk is filled with gratitude for your kindness. It’s just that this is my battle, I will settle things myself.”
Qin Wentian glanced at the reverend, and the numerous cracks on his dharma idol. He then asked, “Reverend, why do you have to persist?”
“If I don’t enter hell, how can I see through the true meaning of the buddha path? This, is my path.” The buddhic light from the reverend intensified, as though he was about to enter nirvana.
“Master!” Bujie called out loudly. “Qin Wentian, help me out!”
Qin Wentian was truly put in a difficult position. Originally, he wanted to interfere but the reverend himself told him not to. In addition, the reverend’s tone was calm and given his current cultivation base, there’s no question that his state of heart is already transcendent. Since this is the case, his resolve must be extremely tough and he has long seen through the mortal coils.
“Silly boy, don’t speak nonsense. Your dao is of freedom, so act according to your desires. Now that you have entered the devil-path, do well and comprehend more things. Don’t allow the dust of the mortal world to stain your carefree heart.” The reverend added.
Jiang Zihua then laughed, “Reverend’s cultivation is truly supreme. I, Jiang, cannot hold a candle to you.”
Although he said this, his attacks grew even more ferocious, wanting to kill the reverend from Askheart Temple.
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed with coldness. But a moment later, the radiance from the reverend grew so intense to the point where one couldn’t open their eyes. He merged as one with the buddhic light, transforming into a beam that shot up into the clouds. The resplendent lamp above him grew even brighter, and a buddhic relic – a sarira, appeared inside it.
“MASTER!” Bujie howled. Devil light illuminated the area around him as numerous devils manifested, brimming with a powerful will as they rushed towards Jiang Zihua.
“This is my path. Bujie, there’s no need to feel sad. We will see each other again.” A voice rang out from within the lamp, incomparably ethereal. After that, as the light of the lamp faded, the lamp also vanished into the void. Bujie thought back to the memories of his childhood as he felt his heart bleeding blood, filled with extreme sorrow. He was an orphan and was extremely mischievous when he was young. He encountered his master who brought him into the Askheart Temple, nurturing him, bringing him up, showing kindness and imparting the buddha dao to him.
Jiang Zihua inclined his head and bowed slightly, “Reverend’s cultivation base has reached a height that’s far above me. I, Jiang, truly feel regret.”
“Brother Jiang’s strength really made me impressed. Right now, the supreme characters at the peak are contending for number one. Why don’t I use this opportunity to test Brother Jiang’s capabilities?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke. As the sound of his voice faded, boundless law energies circulated around him as devil intent soared up into the skies. This made the experts in the surroundings tremble as they froze.
Qin Wentian was planning to act against Jiang Zihua. Seems like he was very unhappy that Jiang Zihua didn’t listen to his request. This was clearly an act of revenge. As expected, those who are strong are wilful indeed.
Jiang Zihua’s eyes flashed with a strange light. However, before he could say anything, Qin Wentian directly slammed out a palm attack. The might of this devil palm seemed unending and boundless, like that of a devil god, containing a fearsome destructive power within. The terrifying pagoda holy will was infused within as well, when the palm slammed forth, it had the power to collapse everything.
Right now, Jiang Zihua basically didn’t have any choice to choose. Qin Wentian directly acted, he had to fight even if he didn’t want to fight.
Buddhic light shone from him as many ancient buddhas appeared around him. All of them unleashed buddha palm attacks in retaliation.
The gigantic devil palm slammed forth with unmatched momentum, easily shattering those buddha palm attacks, arriving before Jiang Zihua. Jiang Zihua folded ancient hand seals as a golden buddha statue appeared before him. With an explosive bang, the statue slammed out two giant palm attacks, clashing with the devil palm imprint, finally causing Qin Wentian’s attack to disintegrate.
Jiang Zihua then transformed into countless clones as a resplendent buddhic light enveloped everything. His true body vanished, and at this moment, an overwhelming pressure could be felt above Qin Wentian’s head.
A boundless buddha might cascaded down, boring down on this entire area. Qin Wentian glanced up, his sword holy will transformed into a towering sword qi river, capable of slashing everything apart. At the same time, Jiang Zihua suddenly felt himself entering another space. Over here, he stood alone in the air, with countless figures of Qin Wentian surrounding him.
His eyes gleamed, shining with buddha light, wanting to see through all illusions. In reality, his true body appeared and descended downwards, wanting to slay the true body of Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian’s body radiated a bloody light as his blood protection avatar appeared, transforming into the form of a Xuanwu, infused with the vajra holy will. Despite Jiang Zihua’s powerful attacks, he was as immovable as a mountain.
In the dreamscape, the countless figures of Qin wentian surrounded Jiang Zihua, each of them launching palm strikes, causing the sky to be blotted out.
Jiang Zihua transformed into countless clones, launching out buddha techniques in deterrence. After that, a bright light flashed as he vanished into the void. When he reappeared again, he was already extremely far away. However, this was useless in the dreamscape. No matter how far he ran to, Qin Wentian could instantly appear beside him in an instant. The pagoda law domain gushed forth, enveloping the entire dreamscape.
At this instant, the spectators saw a strange scene. After Jiang Zihua’s attacks in reality failed, he returned back to his original location. Right now, he was very far away from Qin Wentian but he was frenziedly launching out attacks and defending himself while Qin Wentian stood unmovingly, simply radiating law energy.
At this moment, Qin Wentian also moved, shuttling through space, directly moving towards Jiang Zihua. He slammed out with a punch, sweeping through everything. Jiang Zihua’s countenance drastically changed, he could feel how much pressure Qin Wentian’s other opponents were under when they were facing this double-layer combat.
With a thunderous boom, the giant buddha statue shattered. Jiang Zihua was forced back, as he coughed out several mouthfuls of blood.
However, Qin Wentian also ceased his attacks. He stood arrogantly in the air, coldly regarding Jiang Zihua.
“It was just a friendly spar between us. Brother Jiang wouldn’t mind it, right?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke, domineering referring to the matter before this, where Jiang Zihua didn’t stop the fight against the reverend.
Jiang Zihua’s heart turned cold but there was no expression on his face. He then smiled at Qin Wentian, “Brother Qin’s strength is truly extraordinary. No one in the City of Ancient Emperors can contend against you. I, Jiang Zihua, am truly impressed.”
The spectators all felt shocked in their hearts. They also felt that what Jiang Zihua said was true. In the City of Ancient Emperors, Qin Wentian already had no opponents. Since his identity as the Saber-Sword Immortal King was exposed, he no longer had any trepidations and unleashed his full strength. No one could contend against him. He could deal with whoever he wanted to deal with.
Before this, Qin Wentian told Jiang Zihua to stop but Jiang Zihua refused to. Hence, Qin Wentian directly acted against him, injuring him to humiliate him. How domineering was this? If it wasn’t because the reverend from the Askheart Temple told him not to interfere, most probably, Qin Wentian would already have killed Jiang Zihua.
“Brother Jiang praises me too much.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke, he directly flicked his sleeves and departed. At this moment, the experts from the Jiang Clan and the Myriad Ancient Devil Hall had already stopped fighting. They glanced over at Qin Wentian, the people from the Jiang Clan all had unsightly looks on their faces. Jiang Ziyu also had a complicated expression on his face. Back then when he first met with Qin Wentian, it was in the Southern Phoenix Clan. At that time, Qin Wentian was helping Nanfeng Yunxi to compete for the position of holy successor while he was helping out another holy maiden.
At that time, Qin Wentian’s cultivation base was inferior to him. But now, at the immortal king realm, no one in the entire Jiang Clan was able to hold a candle to Qin Wentian. As for he himself, he was already long surpassed by Qin Wentian.
“Bujie, the reverend has already clearly stated his will. I can’t very well flout it. Also, he did say that you guys would meet each other again. I believe that he didn’t really die.” Qin Wentian consoled Bujie.
“Mhm.” Bujie nodded. He could understand where Qin Wentian was coming from. But still, he couldn’t help but to feel hurt when he saw his master vanishing under the attacks of Jiang Zihua. He could only hope that his master didn’t lie to him and they would see each other again in the future.
There are many secret techniques of the buddha path that ordinary people couldn’t comprehend. There are some that enables the user to cultivate a sarira, some that even allowed the user to be reincarnated into the next lifetime. It was highly possible that Bujie’s master didn’t really ‘die.’
In the other direction, the experts from the Beast God Sect thoroughly annihilated the demons from the nether race. Their strength caused many to feel shock in their hearts. Right now, only three more characters had the opportunity to challenge Qin Wentian. The supreme character from the Beast God Sect, and the two other supreme devil cultivators from the devil mountain. In fact, that two other devil cultivators have not made a move since the beginning at all.
“Brother Qin, if there’s a chance, head back to the devil mountain for a walk.” The Grand Apostle smiled at him. Qin Wentian glanced over and nodded his head, “Sure, I will head there if I get a chance to.”
“Farewell.” The apostle departed. The supreme character from the Judiciary Hall cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian. He didn’t have any intentions to act either. He turned and walked towards the direction where the devil cultivators of the Judiciary Devil Hall were at.
As for the supreme expert from the Beast God Sect, he was already satisfied at having hunted down the supreme nether demon. He didn’t say anything and directly led the other experts from the Beast God Sect away.
No one else challenged Qin Wentian again. For this gathering for those at the peak, he alone reigned supreme over the others. No one could rival him.
“I really didn’t expect that he would actually be the one.” Before this, many people didn’t expect that the ending would be this.
As for Qin Wentian’s enemies, their eyes flickered with coldness. This gathering was truly a failure. Not only did they fail to kill Qin Wentian, he even ascertained his position, standing at the very peak of the City of Ancient Emperors. From now on, no one else would dare to easily make a move against him, unless he exits the City of Ancient Emperors!
