From a young age, Qin Wentian had followed Uncle Black and eventually grew up in the Qin Residence of Sky Harmony City. He had never once imagined he had such an extraordinary origin, and never imagined that his parents would be so dazzling. That man who possessed such indomitable spirit, slaughtering and massacring so much that even immortals and demons cried out; that divine celestial maiden from the nine heavens. Qin Wentian was proud to have such parents.
"In this life, if I'm unable to trample on your enemies, I won't have the face to face you both. No matter what you all have experienced, I will get to the bottom of it sooner or later." Qin Wentian was staring into the horizons. Although he had always yearned to be powerful, he had been a lost sheep regarding his future direction. But now, he knew what he had to do. This time around, he could borrow the power within the ranking monument to unlock these memories. If he were to depend on himself, he would probably have to reach the legendary immortal realm before he had the power to unlock the complete set of memories his father left behind.
Opening his eyes, the clear and dark eyes of Qin Wentian glinted with a glow. He wasn't sad nor depressed, or even dispirited. Only an unyielding determination could be seen in his eyes now.
"Time flowed by so quickly," Qin Wentian mused in his heart. He turned to the food and wine Lin Xian`er brought over and started devouring them ravenously.
After he finished, he stood up and walked towards the banquet table. Lin Xian`er inclined her head and stared after Qin Wentian. She could faintly sense that Qin Wentian had somehow changed. That was the transformation of his presence, it felt as though he was even more unfathomable compared to before. His deep eyes gave people the feeling of an indomitable spirit, desiring nothing but to trample upon immortals and demons alike. Such a gaze actually caused Lin Xian`er's heart to tremble.
"Was I wrong about him?" Lin Xian`er wondered. With the leveling up in his cultivation base, there would naturally be changes to Qin Wentian's aura and presence, but why were there tears in his eyes yesterday? For what reason did his tears flow? Could it be that the energy of the ranking monument caused Qin Wentian to sink into an illusion-scape?
"Allow me to pour the wine for you," Lin Xian`er gave a sweet smile to Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian didn't bother with any pretense of courtesy and directly passed his wine cup over to Lin Xian`er.
Lin Xian`er held the cup in one hand and a wine flask in another, seriously pouring out the wine for Qin Wentian, attracting the attention of many.
"Thank you, Xian`er," Qin Wentian replied. Lin Xian`er smiled and her gentle and dainty hands passed the wine cup over. He then received the wine cup with a laugh, causing Lin Xian`er beautiful brows to flutter slightly before an even more radiant smile painted her face.
"If you like it, Xian`er wouldn't mind pouring wine for you every day," Lin Xian`er 'teased,' and when she spoke, her face was blushed red from the shyness, so beautiful that it caused one's soul to stir.
"I can't satisfy Xian`er's condition," Qin Wentian smiled as he sat down, enjoying the wine. The condition he was referring to was naturally that night when Lin Xian`er told him that in this life, she would only marry an ideal man whose heart only had her. If she can't find such a person, she would remain unmarried all her life.
Lin Xian`er pouted as she added in a charming manner, "What if Xian`er is willing to share Sir Qin with others?"
"Cough, cough…" Qin Wentian almost spat out the mouthful of wine in his mouth. He instantly felt countless sharp gazes riveted upon him. Evidently, everyone was taken aback by the words of Lin Xian`er. Especially these bold words spoken with such a mesmerizing expression mixed with streaks of shyness, they were sufficient to drive any man crazy.
"Hehe." Upon seeing Qin Wentian's embarrassed expression, Lin Xian`er couldn't help but break down in giggles. Qin Wentian knew that he had been 'teased,' and could only smile wryly and shake his head. This Lin Xian`er, even without her doing anything, she could already attract others. Not to mention the fact that if she intentionally tried to charm someone, the temptation would surely be irresistible. She just like a fairy in the mortal world. One could only wonder who in the future would be fortunate enough to have her as a wife.
"You guys are enjoying the delicacies here and whispering sweet nothings to each other, but those remaining in the Immortal Martial Realm have no choice but to wait miserably, shut in there for seven days. It's about time I let them out too, hahaha." Realmlord Wu Mu had a smile that was not a smile as he glanced at Qin Wentian, before shifting his glance to the entrance of the Monument Realm.
"Yeah, junior sister Lingshuang and the others are still in there. They must have been anxious to death." Duan Han stared at the area behind the path of monuments and after which rumbling sounds rang out as the barrier was lifted. The other participants within all instantly rushed out of the exit to the external world. For these last seven days, they had been bored to death, and what was even more depressing was that even now, they still had no idea who the top three rankers were.
Qin Wentian shifted his gaze back, looking through the transparent ranking monument. Those Heaven Chosen who now had the suppression effect lifted were all visibly excited, as they rushed to gather with members of their clans and sects. After that, they turned their gazes onto the ranking monument ahead, and they were all stunned one after another when they noticed the names in the top three positions. Although they had personally witnessed Qin Wentian's strength, their heart still couldn't help but to tremble upon seeing his name appearing at the topmost row.
Qin Wentian naturally also noticed Fan Le, Ye Lingshuang, and the others. Ye Lingshuang was now staring at the names with an unmasked expression of joy, while Fan Le was jumping around excitedly as though he was trying to show off to some people. Even the ice-cold beauty Yun Mengyi seemed to have melted a little, as a soul-stirring smile appeared on her face albeit, only for an instant.
All these scenes were seen by Qin Wentian. Maybe because of their cultivation, the distance between them would involuntarily be pulled apart. However, these people were his best friends and this friendship would never fade despite the passing of time.
Soon after, Qin Wentian frowned. He saw that there was a group of people in a confrontation with Fan Le and the others. The group of people were participants in the Immortal Martial Realm that had conflicts with Fan Le and the rest and right now, behind both groups, even more experts appeared. These newly arrived experts were from the supreme Di Clan and the troops Ye Qingyun had sent. Both groups stood grimly facing off against one another, battle intent radiating from them. Ultimately, both sides suppressed themselves and no battle erupted.
Qin Wentian's eyes narrowed as his eyes gleamed with coldness. He heard from Ji Feixue that if it wasn't for Lin Xian`er, Di Shi would have already killed Fan Le and the others in the Immortal Martial Realm.
"Okay, it's about time for you all to go out. I hope that we would still have a chance to meet again in the future," Realmlord Wu Mu spoke, causing an expression of puzzlement to appear on the faces of many. However, Qin Wentian, Gu Liufeng, and Hua Taixu all understood that these words were meant for them. They had all received the invitation from the master of the realm and as long as they are willing to, they could visit the Immortal Martial Realm anytime.
Thunderous rumbling sounds echoed out as the floating monuments landed on the ground once more. After which, the envoys busied themselves, clearing the banquet and retreated completely. Wu Mu also left this area, leaving only the participants behind.
After which, the Realm Monument parted to two sides as a stairway appeared, leading them out of the Immortal Martial Realm. Instantly, countless gazes shifted over and landed on the participants, the eyes of the crowd were all filled with fervor.
Ten years per activation, the journey for this group of participants has finally ended.
"It has concluded." Qin Wentian drew in a deep breath. The instant the Realm Monument Gate opened, he discovered the empire-toppling silhouette with eyes filled with deep emotions, tightly gritting her teeth and staring right at him. Her gaze never left him. For months now, she had been standing there unmoving, awaiting his return.
The silhouettes within the Immortal Martial Realm all flitted outwards. Qin Wentian lifted his foot, a gentle smile could be seen on his face as he walked towards Mo Qingcheng. The sun's rays landing on him emitted traces of gentle warmth, and even now when he was mixed within the crowd, he was still as dazzling as ever.
"He is Qin Wentian, the number one of the Immortal Martial Realm."
"How young, he isn't even thirty right? Yet he is the first in the Immortal Martial Realm? This is simply too incredible." The hearts of some trembled as they commented.
"Sis, do you believe in love at first sight? I've fallen in love, what should I do?!" a young girl in red stared at her sister as she asked.
"I didn't believe it before this, but now I'm a true believer." Her elder sister by her side stared fixedly at Qin Wentian, as a besotted expression appeared in her eyes causing her younger sister to be taken aback.
"Sis, you are already too old, don't snatch with me okay? I've decided, I want to be the mother of his children."
"Scram. I'm only twenty-four. A mere sixteen-year-old like you even wishes to have children? Can you even have them?" The doughty conversation between the two beautiful young women caused the elders standing behind them to be completely speechless.
At this moment, countless gazes focused on Qin Wentian. Before he came out, although many had heard his name before, only a rare few has seen his face. Before this all they had were their imagination, yet nobody imagined that Qin Wentian was actually such a fiendishly handsome young man. Not only that, the exquisite smile on his face contained traces of unyielding determination. Right now, he was beaming with a radiant smile. One could only imagine the killing power of him right now to those teenaged girls and young women.
Naturally, everything that was happening now was on the basis of him being the top ranker of the Immortal Martial Realm. If he was only mediocre, no matter how good-looking he was, there wouldn't be many outstanding women falling head over heels for him. Ultimately, there was a difference between men and women.
"I can feel the overwhelming pressure." Some women paled as they noticed Lin Xian`er and Lou Bingyu walking beside Qin Wentian. Both of them were considered heavenly beauties.
The Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness frowned when she saw this scene. After which, she saw Lou Bingyu walking over to her with her head lowered. Lou Bingyu then spoke with a tremor in her voice, "I've caused master to be disappointed."
Staring at Lou Bingyu's countenance, the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness felt that something was wrong. Her severe and strict-looking face couldn't help but soften as she gently rubbed Lou Bingyu on her head. "Bingyu, your achievement is already considered pretty good."
Lou Bingyu's body trembled slightly as she lifted her head to look up to the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness. Upon seeing the gentleness in her master's gaze, her eyes instantly misted and turned red. For some reason, she suddenly felt an impulse to cry. This caused the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness to silently sigh; after all, Lou Bingyu was still a child.
Stretching her arms out, she embraced Lou Bingyu as she gently added, "Your talent in cultivation can already be considered extremely outstanding. After all, you are still younger compared to all the eight era-suppressing geniuses. It was master who has been too strict with you."
Lou Bingyu's tears flowed down her face. She spoke softly, cuddled in the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness's embrace. "Master, I fought directly against him and was defeated by him. But he didn't make things difficult for me, he didn't force me to take out the treasure in my body, and even treated me as a friend of his."
The Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness stood there stunned, she instantly knew who the 'him' her disciple was referring to. Turning her gaze to the young man seemingly framed by the sunlight, traces of complexity flickered in the eyes of the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness!
