Chapter 1682: There’s an open path to heaven but you didn’t want to walk it
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The reconstruction of the Evergreen Immortal Empire was carried out. Qin Wentian didn’t actively head out, choosing to stay in the Evergreen Immortal Empire as he waited.
Right now, he has already circulated the news about his return through the immortal realms. The various major powers must be communicating in secret and once there are any movements, everyone would know immediately. He was waiting for his enemies to group up once again, coming here together in force to hunt him down just like they did in the past. Only then would he be able to account for the debt once and for all.
Qin Wentian wasn’t in a hurry at all. Since he returned to Azure Mystic, he naturally would want to clear each and every debt of revenge the major powers owned him.
At the same time, he has also sent people out to make discreet enquiries about the news of Jun Mengchen and Little Rascal.
However, at this moment, the news from the Senluo Immortal Empire circulated over, telling Qin Wentian to scram there and submit. This caused Qin Wentian to feel bewildered, had the Senluo Immortal Empire gone crazy? The Ying Clan and Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire was destroyed, yet they actually dared to tell him such a thing?
Or to better put it, the Senluo Immortal Empire was extremely confident in themselves. Could they have also originated from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms?
Qin Wentian knew that there are also other empyreans from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms who came here together with him. There were even some characters from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms that received the news before them and were here earlier than them. Now that they were in Azure Mystic, yet they didn’t do any major things to gain attention. Qin Wentian didn’t believe that they are here just for sightseeing, they must be biding their time for something.
Now, the experts of the immortal realms were all paying attention. The Senluo Immortal Empre told Qin Wentian to scram over to their empire and submit. How would Qin Wentian respond?
Qin Wentian’s response was only a single sentence – the Senluo Immortal Empire will be the next empire that’s destroyed.
This caused the hearts of many people to tremble. Their messages…one was more tyrannical than the other.
Today, a few guests arrived in the Evergreen Immortal Empire. They weren’t the people Qin Wentian pointed out in his original message. These people came from the hegemonic sect of the eastern regions, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect.
In the imperial palace, Qin Wentian, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor and the others were all present. They stared at the three guests who arrived. These three were people Qin Wentian had never met before, but their cultivation bases were extremely strong. One was a peak-stage immortal emperor while the two others were at the mid-stage. The peak-stage emperor was in the lead, he wore a platinum robe that shone resplendently as he exuded a feeling of imposingness.
“Junior Brother Qin.” When the three of them saw Qin Wentian, the man in the lead directly called out. Right now, there was no need to hide anything. Since the Heavenly Talisman Realm has already shown their strength, using the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect to enter Azure Mystic, they naturally didn’t fear that their identities would be exposed. When the man in the lead called Qin Wentian as ‘junior brother,’ the Evergreen Immortal Emperor and the others didn’t feel any surprise, they had long guessed at this. Jun Mengchen had always been Qin Wentian’s junior apprentice brother and everyone knew that Jun Mengchen came from this hidden power. There was no need to doubt that Qin Wentian did as well.
“Please be seated.” Qin Wentian spoke. The peak-stage immortal emperor in the lead waved his hand, “We will be leaving after I say a few words. Junior brother Qin, it’s fortunate that you didn’t die and even managed to return in such an imposing manner. I’m truly happy for you. Now that our sect has already moved out in the open, you should return to the sect with me together. We are now the hegemon of the eastern regions and if we combine our strength with junior brother Qin and your subordinates, we would undoubtedly be like a tiger given wings. It would be effortless to dominate the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms and quell all the chaos.”
“Get Bai Wuya and Jun Mengchen to speak to me.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke, his words causing the eyes of the peak-stage emperor to narrow. That emperor then smiled, “Jun Mengchen has betrayed our sect. If junior brother Qin sees him, don’t forget to act and kill this traitor. Bai Wuya is currently in closed-door seclusion, it’s inconvenient for him to come here.”
“Why did Jun Mengchen become a traitor?” Qin Wentian asked.
“How would I know why? The sect was extremely good to him, the kindness the sect has shown to him was as heavy as a mountain. He had cultivated in the sect and obtained many benefits before. To think that he actually turned traitor at the end, simply incorrigible.” That expert coldly snorted.
“I’ll know everything for sure once I’ve seen him. The three of you, you can return now.” Qin Wentian directly issued the expulsion order. The three of them frowned, as they coldly replied, “Qin Wentian, what do you mean by this? Are you not planning to return to the sect? Are you going to walk the footsteps of Jun Mengchen?”
Qin Wentian also frowned, his eyes gleamed with cold light as his expression turned icy, “Can I ask, what’s the main edict of the sect? When I joined, it was told to me that the sect would never force its disciples to do anything against their will?”
“The circumstances now are different now. This era is extremely chaotic. Since we have shown ourselves, we naturally should unite and fight together with our sect to conquer Azure Mystic.” Another one of them spoke.
“I see how things are. Now that I’ve returned with an army of immortal emperors, the sect finally remembers me and wants to unite to fight together. Back then when I was weak, when the major powers of the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms banded together to hunt me down, where was the sect then? Did they fight together with me?” Qin Wentian’s voice turned glacial. During that year, the Heavenly Talisman Realm did not fight for him but he didn’t feel too much resentment about that. He understood the sect’s edict well enough when he joined. He didn’t need to do anything against his will, and the sect would not act to save him if he was in trouble.
However, things had already passed, the Heavenly Talisman Realm was true to their word and didn’t send anyone to fight for him. But now that he has become stronger, they wanted to unite with him so as to fight together? How ridiculous was this? In addition, the Heavenly Talisman Realm has fully taken over the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, they even wanted to force the Evergreen Immortal Empire to submit and hunt Jun Mengchen down. Since this is the case, he can be considered to have severed his relationship with the Heavenly Talisman Realm completely. From now on, the Heavenly Talisman Realm was the Heavenly Talisman Realm. He, Qin Wentian, was his own man. They would have nothing more to do with each other.
“In that case, you are bent on following the path Jun Mengchen took?” That peak-stage immortal emperor icily spoke.
“Can you guys sense the imprint of the Heavenly Talisman Realm on me?” Qin Wentian suddenly asked. Since the other party spoke like that, there was no longer a need to continue talking.
The three of them frowned. This was also something they felt strange about. Between disciples of the Heavenly Talisman Realm, they should be able to sense each other’s identity. However, Qin Wentian’s body didn’t seem to have the Heavenly Talisman Imprint.
“Did you ask someone to destroy the imprint?” That expert coldly spoke.
“Back then during the war in the Evergreen Immortal Empire, I, Qin Wentian, have already died once and the imprint vanished upon my death. The Qin Wentian today is no longer the Qin Wentian of the past. The three of you, please return.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke, he had already made things very clear with his words. He had already died once and was no longer the Qin Wentian back then. His connection with the Heavenly Talisman Realm was severed.
The three immortal emperors all had unsightly expressions as they stared at Qin Wentian. The peak-stage emperor in the lead coldly spoke, “Since you are no longer a disciple of our sect. Don’t blame us for not showing mercy if anything happens in the future. Farewell.”
After that, the three of them flicked their sleeves and left. They were openly threatening Qin Wentian.
But how would Qin Wentian be bothered by that? He did owe the Heavenly Talisman Realm and had a sense of belonging to it. But now, the Heavenly Talisman Realm actually wanted the Evergreen Immortal Empire to submit to them and even had the thoughts of destroying the Evergreen Immortal Empire? Not only that, they also forced Jun Mengchen to rebel and was hunting him down now? Since that’s the case, let the death he suffered back then act as the catalyst of severing all connection between him and them.
After the people of the Heavenly Talisman Realm left, more guests arrived at the Evergreen Immortal Empire. This time around, it was actually someone from the powerful nine-tailed demon fox race. In addition, it was none other than the fox goddess whose beauty was unrivaled. She had personally came here, escorting another person back.
“Big brother Qin!” A sexy maiden, yet her aura was still filled with a hint of innocence, stood beside the fox goddess. This was actually none other than Purgatory. When she saw Qin Wentian, her silhouette instantly flashed as she rushed into his embrace.
Her life was given by Qin Wentian. In this world, no one else would surpass Qin Wentian in her heart. That year when Qin Wentian had died, she was filled with complete despair. Who would have thought that she would be able to see Qin Wentian standing before her again. She was naturally incomparably happy.
“Purgatory.” Qin Wentian hugged her and patted her on the shoulders. He then turned his gaze to the fox goddess standing in the air. This was someone once defeated by him those years ago when in the City of Ancient Emperors.
“Many thanks.” Qin Wentian smiled.
The fox goddess had a cold look on her face. She shot a glance at Qin Wentian, “Someone begged a favor from me. Now that I’ve sent her here. I shall bid my farewell then.”
After that, the fox goddess directly turned and flew off, not stopping for an instant.
Purgatory came out of Qin Wentian’s embrace and there were tears in her eyes. She sobbed, “That old monster has died.”
“Old monster?” Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed.
“It’s that old monster that has been taking care of Little Rascal. He and Little Rascal were being hunted by Jia Yemo of the Phoeroc Race and the king of the Sun Gold Demonic Race and he was eventually killed. However, Little Rascal managed to escape.” Purgatory sobbed as she explained. Back then after Qin Wentian’s death, that old nine-headed heaven devouring beast was the one taking care of her and Little Rascal through so many years.
The old heaven devouring beast had a good relationship with the nine-tailed fox race, he decided to leave Purgatory with them. And after the news of Qin Wentian being alive was circulated, he asked the fox goddess for help to send her here.
Qin Wentian’s heart trembled, filled with melancholy as he thought of the old heaven devouring beast. Although he wasn’t really familiar with that old demon, he still felt hurt in his heart when he learned of his death.
“What about Little Rascal? Where is he now? I’ll go look for him.” Qin Wentian spoke.
Purgatory shook her head, “I only know that he’s being hunted and has escaped into the depths of the desolate mountain range. He should be injured but I have no idea where is he currently. But his ability to hide is very strong, he shouldn’t be in any trouble.”
Little Rascal was capable of transforming himself into a myriad of forms and was extremely shrewd.
“Phoeroc Race, Sun Gold Race.” An immense killing intent gushed forth from Qin Wentian.
“RUMBLE~” At this moment, the space trembled as a terrifying screen of light appeared in the air. A burst of fearsome energy completely sealed this entire space as a destructive beam of light shot towards the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire.
A few figures rose up in the air, these were all Qin Wentian’s subordinates. Emperor light radiated from them as they blocked that beam of light.
“Qin Wentian, to think that you actually didn’t die.” A cold voice rang out from the void. Qin Wentian slowly soared into the air. He saw that space was actually severed here, somebody had launched an attack towards the Evergreen Immortal Emperor through the void.
This must be the Heaven Seizing Bowl, the treasure of Old Devil Duo Tian. Back then at the Demon God Mountain, he had used this to attack Qin Wentian before.
Through the broken layers of space, he saw a black palace. Over there, a few familiar faces could be seen. Old Devil Duo Tian, the Violet Emperor and the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor. Their eyes were cold, filled with killing intent as they stared at Qin Wentian.
“There’s an open path to heaven but you all refuse to walk. There’s no gate that allowed entry to hell yet you guys want to barge in.” Qin Wentian’s expression was like ice. Eastern Sage and the Violet Emperor have finally appeared, not only that, they even took the initiative to send themselves here.
His palm extended forward. In an instant, a terrifying giant spatial pam imprint shot through the layers of space, entering the void, targeting the source of the beam of light. Old Devil Duo Tian’s eyes flashed as he coldly asked, “What’s going on? Why does he under the laws of space?”
The Heaven Seizing Bowl continued to flare with power as it unceasingly launched light beams, destroying Qin Wentian’s palm imprint. However, Qin Wentian had already moved forward. A spatial gate opened up before the Heaven Seizing Bowl, redirecting its attacks elsewhere. Qin Wentian then entered yet another spatial gate, crossing the void, instantly disappearing from his original location.
At the next moment, Qin Wentian directly appeared at Old Devil Duo Tian’s headquarters. He stood in the air and stared down imperiously at Old Devil Duo Tian, Eastern Sage and the Violet Emperor.
