Chapter 1765: Play All the Way Until the End
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The fragrance of the newly served wine permeated the atmosphere, it was clearly of a better grade compared to the previous wines he ordered. After drinking it, a feeling of warmth rose from his stomach and transformed into a cool current of energy that circulated his entire body, causing him to feel extremely comfortable.
Qin Wentian and the others only took a small sip and involuntarily praise it. “Good wine.”
“This wine is truly so fragrant. It must be from the inn’s boss’s private stash.” Jun Mengchen laughed. Little Rascal drank bowls after bowls of the wine, appearing extremely adorable.
“The boss of this inn is truly an interesting man.” Qin Wentian laughed. The price of the food and drinks here were measured in world stones, yet the boss of this place actually waived the fees for them? What would the other customers think? Clearly, the boss didn’t give a damn.
Before this, there was someone saying that he should look for either the inn’s boss or that Absolute Beginning Overlord to resolve this issue. And now, both of them have already expressed their attitude. The Absolute Beginning Overlord was too proud and had a very lofty view of himself. Compared to him, the inn’s boss made Qin Wentian feel more comfortable. It was because the boss had given him some benefits. The wine and food might be good but what was truly important was the meaning behind his actions. All these were just minor things but they were capable of expressing the boss’s attitude. Comparing the inn’s boss and the Absolute Beginning Overlord, Qin Wentian preferred the inn’s boss more.
The group of them continued to enjoy the food. There were many world overlords who came to the Ten Miles Inn and left after that. The name Qingcheng Realmlord soon began to spread through Time City. Right now, outside the inn, there were many people discussing about Qin Wentian. This man forcefully abducted the serving girl from the Heaven Immortal Tower, rejected the invitation by the Donghuang little princess, not wanting to rely on her for protection. Clearly, this person was somewhat prideful. But after that, he slayed three world overlords in a single battle, rendering the Heaven Immortal Tower’s plan useless. And no one actually dared to challenge him again.
Who knew how powerful this transcendent-level world overlord was exactly? His victory over the three world overlords wasn’t just a simple victory, he insta-killed them tyrannically. He wanted to tell others that for the sake of a treasure, they might even lose their lives and it wasn’t worth it to take the risk. After knowing this, the would-be bounty hunters also didn’t feel that the temptation of the Heaven Immortal Tower’s treasure was too great as they understood that their target would be a transcendent-level world overlord.
In addition, it was said that the Absolute Beginning Overlord was also residing in the Ten Miles Inn. He personally invited Qin Wentian to join him to dine but was rejected by Qin Wentian, causing the Absolute Beginning Overlord to be in a bad mood. But after that, the inn’s boss actually sent up more delicacies free-of-charge for Qin Wentian to enjoy? This matter soon circulated around causing the name of Qingcheng Realmlord to rise sharply in fame in Time City.
Naturally, the people of Time City weren’t too bothered about this. To them, this was nothing new. Before the commencement of each Convention, there would always be people rising to fame and there was no exception this time as well. The Qingcheng Realmlord wouldn’t be the only one. Right now in another location inside Time City, another matter occurred and a world overlord had also displayed his brilliance.
However, Time City would only pay attention to those who could truly leave their names in history after they became famous. Each of these legendary characters had a shocking story behind their rise. A new person like the Qingcheng Realmlord was still nothing now, he was someone walking on that path of glory. No one knew what his future heights would be.
Many people were paying attention to the movements of the Dragon Pool Manor. The Heaven Immortal Tower’s plan was neutralized by that battle. In that case, what actions would they take to resolve this matter?
Could it be that the Dragon Pool Manor would send out domineering experts at the world overlord realm of their own to suppress this Qingcheng Realmlord?
At this moment, in a courtyard inside the Dragon Pool Manor, a young world overlord stood there with his hands behind his back. He had an extraordinary aura and radiated a formless pressure.
His name was Longyuan Haoyu and was a genius world overlord of the Dragon Pool Manor that had an extraordinary status. Jin Zhi was one of his many women. Given a character like him, it was extremely normal for him to be surrounded by beauties. All humans would have desire and world overlords were no exception as well. He wasn’t married but does it mean that he would abstain from women? It was naturally not possible.
Also, women to him weren’t considered overly important. Back then, Jin Zhi tempted him and he didn’t resist. After that, he arranged Jin Zhi to work in the Heaven Immortal Tower and only a minority knew that Jin Zhi was his woman. He naturally wouldn’t make public such information as Jin Zhi wasn’t qualified to be the woman he married in the future. He didn’t really have any deep emotions to Jin Zhi, everything was just for fun to him.
But even so, there was naturally no way he would allow any tom, dick or harry to humiliate his woman, let alone forcibly bringing her away. It was one thing that he didn’t want to admit his relationship with Jin Zhi, but it was also the truth that the Qingcheng Realmlord had smacked his face and caused damage to the Heaven Immortal Tower’s reputation. Hence, he asked an elder in the clan who was responsible for the Heaven Immortal Tower to give out the command, tempting bounty hunters to act for him.
But even so, he wasn’t really bothered about this. To him, this was just a very minor matter. As long as he captured Qin Wentian, he would surely humiliate him badly to repair some reputation of the Heaven Immortal Tower while also helping him to vent his emotions. However, the problem now was that this minor matter wasn’t settled at all and this incident has spread even further. The only reason was because the person the Heaven Immortal Tower wanted to deal with was actually a transcendent-level world overlord who could insta-kill three powerful existences at the world overlord realm.
This matter has circulated all over Time City and caused a huge commotion. That Qingcheng Realmlord used the Heaven Immortal Tower to boost his own fame. Many people were waiting for the Heaven Immortal Tower, nay, the Dragon Pool Manor’s attitude. They wanted to see how the Dragon Pool Manor would react.
“Haoyu.” A voice rang out. Longyuan Haoyu’s eyes flashed as he replied through the air, “Uncle.”
“Next, what do you plan to do? How do you plan to settle this matter? Right now, your father has already learned about this but he hasn’t questioned you yet. After all, this is something stirred up by you. That serving girl is your woman, right?” A voice rang out in Longyuan Haoyu’s mind. Since such a major commotion has happened, it was naturally impossible to hide this from the clan’s elders.
“I will pay a visit to the Qingcheng Realmlord.” Longyuan Haoyu spoke.
“Good.” The other party replied and there was no more communication. Longyuan Haoyu might be his junior but was also a world overlord existence. Naturally, there was no need for the elder to interfere in everything. In any case, the matters of the clan would always be handed over to juniors of the latter generations to resolve, helping them to mature faster.
They didn’t send anyone to domineeringly suppress Qin Wentian because although their Dragon Pool Manor might be able to do that, they were considered a major power in Time City. How could they truly go all out to suppress a transcendent-level world overlord who came here for the Convention of the Myriad Realms for the sake of a single serving girl? Would that improve their reputation? Would that be able to repair the Heaven Immortal Tower’s face? Most probably, there would be even more gossip in the future, feeling that the Dragon Pool Manor had no principles when doing this. One mustn’t forget that the start of all of this was because of that serving girl first insulting the other party’s wife.
The wife of a transcendent-level world overlord, is she someone a serving girl of your Heaven Immortal Tower could casually insult? Could it be that just because the Heaven Immortal Tower belonged to the Dragon Pool Manor, the serving girl could act so tyrannically?
If the Dragon Pool Manor really did so, they would even suffer more damage to their reputation and be denounced by others.
Hence, for the next few days, there were no movements from the Heaven Immortal Tower. The Dragon Pool Manor also seemed very calm as though they had already forgotten about this matter. Some people even thought that this was already concluded and both sides decided to treat it that this matter has never happened and wouldn’t pursue it any longer. After all, a serving girl was captured because she insulted a transcendent-level world overlord? Of course there was nothing anyone could say about it. Could it be that transcendent-level world overlords have no temper?
Jin Zhi, who initially thought that Qin Wentian would be in trouble, actually found him leading peaceful days. She no longer had any temper and was now taking the role of a servant, serving the needs of Qin Wentian’s group. She was already filled with despair. Did her boyfriend give her up just like that?
Today, Qin Wentian was in his courtyard. All of a sudden, he furrowed his brows and asked, “Who is it?”
“Longyuan Haoyu.” A voice rang out. Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, someone from the Dragon Pool Manor has arrived?
“Come in.” Qin Wentian calmly spoke. After that, a young-looking figure appeared before him and this was none other than Longyuan Haoyu.
Another figure then sped over. Jin Zhi was filled with joy when she saw the person who came and she called out with excitement, “Haoyu!”
Longyuan Haoyu merely coldly glanced at her before shifting his eyes away. With that single gaze, it caused Jin Zhi to feel chills all over her body as though she had fallen into a freezer.
Jun Mengchen and the others walked over, staring at this uninvited guest with some trepidation in their eyes. The aura of this young man was very strong and he had the surname Longyuan. Clearly, he was from the Dragon Pool Manor. During these days, they had heard the name of the Dragon Pool Manor many times.
“Qingcheng Realmlord.” Longyuan Haoyu stared at Qin Wentian. “Recently, Sir’s fame has been shooting up in Time City.”
“Just speak directly.” Qin Wentian stared at Longyuan Haoyu.
“Alright.” Longyuan Haoyu nodded. “You forcefully brought away a serving girl of my Heaven Immortal Tower, causing my Dragon Pool Manor to have no good way to react. Why don’t we each take a step back? You send the serving girl back to the Heaven Immortal Tower and we will allow you to choose a divine weapon of your choice so that both sides would have a method to step down. How about it?”
Qin Wentian stared at Longyuan Haoyu while coldly laughing in his heart. Wanting him to first send the serving girl back meant that they wanted him to take the first step to make the compromise. After that, the Heaven Immortal Tower would then allow him to pick a divine weapon to reward him?
“Why is it not the Heaven Immortal Tower first bring a treasure here to apologize before I send the serving girl back? In any case, this matter was caused by this woman. But back then if the Heaven Immortal Tower made her apologize, I wouldn’t have pursued the matter any further.” Qin Wentian replied. He didn’t have any objections that Longyuan Haoyu wanted a way where both sides could step down and resolve this peacefully. However, there was no logic for him to be the first to compromise.
The one who did so first and the one who did so later, the meaning behind it was completely different.
“Sir, why must you act like this? Our Dragon Pool Manor has been here in Time City for many years and is still considered somewhat famous.” Longyuan Haoyu spoke.
“So, because the Dragon Pool Manor is a major power, I should be the one who first take a step back?” Qin Wentian laughed. “In truth, there’s no need for so much trouble. I’ve already said this before in the Heavenly Immortal Tower that I have no intentions to go against the Heaven Immortal Tower and the Dragon Pool Manor. The one who insulted my wife is this woman, this is the reason why I captured her as she should pay a price for her actions. As for the loss of face caused to the Heaven Immortal Tower, wasn’t the Heaven Immortal Tower the one who first tried to tempt bounty hunters to come after me? I can treat this matter as though it didn’t happen before.”
“In that case, you are not planning to step a step back then?” Longyuan Haoyu frowned. He had already personally made a trip here, but this Qingcheng Realmlord still maintained his attitude.
“If you came here for the sake of making me take a step back for you to save face, you can return now.” Qin Wentian impolitely replied. He has already made things very clear, he wouldn’t pursue the fact that the Heaven Immortal Tower offered a reward to tempt bounty hunters to hunt him. This was the compromise that he was willing to make. It also wasn’t that he wanted to blow this matter up but from what he was hearing now, this Longyuan Haoyu actually wanted him to take the first step and release the woman who had insulted Qingcheng.
This was the attitude of the Dragon Pool Manor?
Since this was the case, he shall play all the way until the end with them!
