Chapter 1697: Insta-killing an Empyrean
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Qin Wentian naturally didn’t know that a certain fatty was jumping up and down happily in a city in the eastern regions after hearing his name. He also didn’t know that the hearts of many who knew of him were shaking due to great shock. These people who were acquainted with him were either friends or brothers that had shared life-and-death experiences, or beautiful maidens that secretly admired him, there were also some who had grudges with him. All of them without fail, continuously heard about Qin Wentian’s name.
The Heaven Empyrean’s name circulated through the immortal realms. Just like what the Southern Phoenix Matriarch Nanfeng Yaoyue has said, no one in the world didn’t know of him.
The royal capital of the Evergreen Immortal Empire became more majestic. Countless experts were extremely busy but Qin Wentian felt very carefree. Right now, Mo Qingcheng, Qing`er, Little Rascal, Purgatory and the others were all around him and he could set some worries in his heart at ease. Naturally, he didn’t forget about Jun Mengchen and Bai Wuya.
On the other side, Qin Wentian was also worried about the general situation in the immortal realms. According to his scouts, he learned that many more experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms appeared in various locations. They all seemed to be searching for something and was keeping low-profiles. In addition, there were people who saw empyreans flying through the horizons, travelling extremely far away to unknown lands beyond the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms.
Although Qin Wentian had no idea what these experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms are searching for, he knew that there clearly must be some secrets hidden within Azure Mystic. Back then countless years ago, the Heavenly Talisman Realm and the Jiang Clan already sent out a branch here to develop in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. Their main purposes should be to search for this unknown thing as well. And now, since the ban was relaxed, many experts from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms personally came down to the lower world to search themselves.
In the blink of an eye, several months passed. The Azure Mystic Immortal Realms was still jointly ruled by the tripartite powers but none of the three supreme powers made any moves to invade each other. Most probably, all of them felt some mutual trepidation in their hearts.
During these days, other than accompanying his family and friends, he would also occasionally guide the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, Southern Phoenix Matriarch and the others on their cultivations. Right now, strength and insights are already at an extremely high level. Not only that, he even brought many treasures from the upper world to aid in the cultivation efforts of everyone here. He hoped that more empyreans would appear in his alliance, there were too many people stuck at the peak-stage of the immortal emperor realm for too many years. They were only a single step away from reaching the empyrean realm and the difference between the two realms was just a spark of insight.
However, Qin Wentian failed to cause anyone under him to break through to the empyrean level but there was an empyrean who came to the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire looking for him.
When Qin Wentian saw the person who appeared, he was instantly stunned. This was especially so after he sensed the fluctuations of the person’s cultivation base. A great amount of shock stirred in his heart.
This, should be then the real person from the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms that became an ancient emperor. Qin Wentian didn’t expect it to be him. Seems like his cultivation speed wasn’t any inferior to Qin Wentian himself who was aided by a series of fortunate events.
“You annihilated the Sun Gold Demon Beast Race?” The person who just arrived was also clad in white. He had a lanky figure and exuded a transcendent aura.
“Seems like I’ve acted too fast and affected your quest for revenge.” Qin Wentian apologetically replied. So it turned out that the person who came here was none other than Hua Taixu.
Qin Wentian knew that back then in the City of Ancient Emperors, the Myriad Manifestations Immortal King died in the hands of demons from the Sun Gold Demon Beast Race. Hua Taixu naturally wanted revenge. In another words, even if Qin Wentian didn’t act, the Sun Gold Demon Beast Race would also have became history.
“The ending is still the same.” Hua Taixu’s calm voice had no fluctuations. He recently broke through and only came out after he stabilized his foundation. After coming out, he learned that Qin Wentian was named as the Heaven Empyrean and he had already annihilated the Sun Gold Demon Beast Race.
“The spatial tunnel from the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms has appeared, it’s about time to go back. In any case, I heard that the Heavenly Talisman Realm has captured Jun Mengchen. When are you heading there? I can go there with you.” Hua Taixu’s voice didn’t contain too much emotion but he was actually willing to fight side by side with Qin Wentian. Back then in the City of Ancient Emperors, Qin Wentian, him, Jun Mengchen, Nanfeng Yunxi and the others has also once fought together before and experienced many things.
“Right. I’ll head there once the time is right. Why don’t you rest and cultivate in the imperial palace for now?” Qin Wentian spoke.
“That’s alright. You should have messaging crystals with you, right? Give me one of them, when the time comes for you to act, just inform me and I’ll come by accordingly.” Hua Taixu’s words caused Qin Wentian’s eyes to gleam with sharpness. Hua Taixu seemed to be very familiar with the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. However, he didn’t ask anything more, he directly took out a messaging crystal and imprinted his immortal sense into it and passed it to Hua Taixu.
After Hua Taixu also left his immortal sense in his crystal, he directly departed, as though he had never appeared at all. Qin Wentian glanced at his vanished silhouette as a look of contemplation flashed in his eyes. At this moment, several figures appeared around Qin Wentian. Little Rascal and Nanfeng Yunxi came over and their eyes were also gleaming with a bright light. After all, they once fought together with Hua Taixu when they were in the City of Ancient Emperors.
And the conversation Hua Taixu had with Qin Wentian earlier caused them to feel that Hua Taixu has already reached Qin Wentian’s level.
“He has broken through the emperor realm.” Qin Wentian softly spoke. Nanfeng Yunxi’s beautiful eyes gleamed sharply, Little Rascal had a look of shock on his face. After that, Little Rascal sighed dispiritedly, “Ai, seems like this genius has slacked too much.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed, he felt that Hua Taixu was somewhat different from before.
Time continued to flow by, after the tripartite balance of power was formed, things seemed to have calmed down on the surface. In the royal capital of the Evergreen Immortal Empire, there were now many majestic imperial palaces. It was rumored that during the time of construction, there were many grandmasters laying powerful formations on the buildings as well. It was just that nobody knew if these rumors were true or false.
Today, the spatial tunnel leading to the Heavenly Talisman Realm was opened forcibly from the outside. Two handsome figures dressed in white stepped together into the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
These two exuded magnificence through the generations and had transcendent auras. They were none other than Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu. They didn’t head to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect but directly barged into the Heavenly Talisman Realm in the lower world instead.
The spatial gate flashed, Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu directly stepped through it. Their immortal senses swept out and discovered many experts but they weren’t in a hurry to act. After all, many people here were characters at the immortal emperor realm and below and when these people discovered Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu, all of them had shocked looks on their faces. After all, in the past, no one could possibly invade the Heavenly Talisman Realm because they had no way to enter. However, Qin Wentian could.
“Invasion, Qin Wentian is invading…” Very swiftly, the experts of the Heavenly Talisman Realm circulated this news out. However, since Qin Wentian has openly showed himself, he naturally couldn’t be bothered about news leaking out. Swishing sounds rang out, tree vines shot over with the speed of lightning, directly rushing towards an immortal emperor. The expression of that immortal emperor drastically changed as he frenziedly tried to flee but how could he make it in time? The thick vine directly bound him. After that, Qin Wentian brought his captive along as he made his way into the depths of the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
On their journey in, he discovered more immortal emperors. The tree vines multiplied and shot out in all directions as an ancient tree manifested behind Qin Wentian. Not too long after, over ten immortal emperors were caught by him. All of them struggled madly but how could they be strong enough to break free?
“BOOM!” A heaven-shaking might gushed over, instantly enveloping Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu. The entire sky changed color as the world turned to ice. Frost descended everywhere, those immortal emperors felt themselves being frozen, the vines were also losing all hints of vitality. Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu were frozen as well.
A figure walked over, exuding immense power. Cracking sounds rang out, Hua Taixu and Qin Wentian broke free of being frozen.
“Qin Wentian, you actually dare to act so brazenly.” An empyrean from the Heavenly Talisman Realm roared. This was an empyrean that was guarding the Heavenly Talisman Realm in the lower world, he was extremely powerful.
The two of them ignored him. At the next instant, Hua Taixu’s eyes turned into vortexes, there were no longer pupils, but the vortexes seemed like a separate space, a different world. A strong suction force directly absorbed the Heavenly Talisman Realm’s empyrean into it. In the next moment, that empyrean only felt his will being overridden and his body was out of his control. He was actually traversing through the cycle of countless samsara as numerous scenes flashed through his mind.
And at this moment, a fearsome sense of danger arose in his heart. That empyrean howled in anger but his consciousness remained trapped inside the world of endless samsara, unable to extricate himself. Destructive energies crackled around his body, but he had no way to control his fear. He started trembling and in the next moment, felt a burst of pain. This pain lasted only for a short time because his body had completely disintegrated in a few moments due to the destructive attacks. Since he had already died, his consciousness was naturally snuffed out as well.
Within the span of a second, an empyrean was insta-killed.
Those emperors, that were caught, all had despair on their faces. Their hearts felt like dead ashes, this powerful empyrean guarding their Heavenly Talisman Realm was killed in a single strike by the two invaders? Who could block these two then?
Even that expert at the empyrean level had no opportunity to inform others for help, vanishing in an instant after the joint-attack. One has to know that the empyrean guarding here was at the so-called ancient emperor realm. But he got insta-killed so easily?
Qin Wentian and Hua Taixu continued, not bothered at all by the terrifying levels of destruction when the two of them joined forces. In truth, having such an effect was also considered normal. Hua Taixu was proficient in the energy of samsara and reincarnation. After he comprehended the source origins of his laws, his eyes became the ignition point for his source origins. With a single gaze, his eye technique would automatically activate, trapping his target into endless samsara. There was no way for his target to struggle free so easily.
When the target got trapped, Qin Wentian used his fastest speed to unleash his powerful attacks. How could he fail to kill a defenceless target? This was simply a perfect partnership.
“Where is Jun Mengchen and Bai Wuya? If you guys refuse to speak, just die.” Qin Wentian spoke. Many of the immortal emperors he captured felt their hearts trembling. Someone then replied, “They are in the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect…”
Qin Wentian continued to fly through the air with Hua Taixu beside him. The amount of immortal emperors they captured grew more and more. As long as Qin Wentian wanted it, just a single thought from him could cause these immortal emperors to disintegrate into ashes. However, Qin Wentian didn’t kill them. Unless it was absolutely essential, he still wasn’t willing to start a massacre in the Heavenly Talisman Realm!
He believed that the Heavenly Talisman Realm changed because of some edicts from the upper world. And no matter what, this place, was ultimately once his home.
At this moment, inside the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, in a floating palace, the three remaining empyreans grouped together. Their expressions were extremely unsightly to behold. They just received news that Qin Wentian had invaded the Heavenly Talisman Realm here in the lower world!
