The experts of the Royal Sacred Sect were all dumbstruck by the words they heard.
As the hegemony of the Royal Sacred Region, the word of the Royal Sacred Sect was the law, nobody dared to disobey it. However today, a dazzling young maiden with a mysterious resplendent glow around her descended from a spatial treasure and threatened them in front of all the experts present, as well as in front of the Sacred Emperor that if anything happened to Qin Wentian, she would level the entire Royal Sacred Region to the ground.
This unbridled arrogance turned the thoughts of the Royal Sacred Sect's experts topsy-turvy. What character was she exactly that she dared to speak words like this? Also that spatial treasure was extremely strong. They had many of the latter-level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants present, yet only the Sacred Emperor had sensed her existence.
Not only that, although she seemed to be very young, in her beautiful eyes there were traces of a undoubtable resolve, as though she would definitely achieve what she had said.
"Capture her!" When that maiden disappeared, only then did the various experts realize that they had been too stunned by her words. A voice rang out filled with a towering coldness, it belonged to none other than peak-level Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant. As the hegemony of this world, how could they stand for such threats?
However, they only saw a golden light flashing in the sky as a terrifying fluctuation of spatial energy permeated the air. That flawlessly beautiful figure stepped onto a bridge from the void and instantly disappeared as the screen of golden light closed, completely vanishing into thin air.
The experts of the Royal Sacred Sect flew over, yet they only heard a calm voice saying, "She has already left."
"Left?" The experts were all stunned. What a powerful spatial treasure, it could hide the presence of someone completely to the extent that they couldn't discover her existence.
"Sacred Emperor, that female threatened our Royal Sacred Sect, we must kill her!" An old man icily spoke.
"Can you even catch her?" The emotionless voice of the Sacred Emperor rang out, his words causing the gaze of the old man to stiffen. After which the Sacred Emperor continued, "That maiden shouldn't be someone of our Royal Sacred Region."
The hearts of everyone present shuddered at the implications. After which the old man asked again, "Then what should we do?"
"Hmph." A cold voice rang out, filled with dissatisfaction causing the entire space to become silent. Even the experts from the Royal Sacred Sect all felt a pressure pressing down on them.
It seems that the Sacred Emperor wasn't very happy regarding them.
Today, Zai Qiu and the others had no way to resist Qin Wentian, and were even humiliated by Qin Wentian in public. It was no wonder why the Sacred Emperor was unhappy. Even though his status was supreme, and no longer bothered about the matters of the Royal Sacred Region, he would still feel the trapping of emotions.
After that cold snort, the pressure bearing down vanished, and there was no longer any sound. The experts of Royal Sacred Sect remained silent for a long moment before sighing. What should they do? Did they still need the Sacred Emperor to teach them what to do? No wonder the Sacred Emperor was unhappy. The matters that happened today had disturbed the Sacred Emperor, causing him to manifest his immortal will. Not only that, the events today were a great humiliation to their Royal Sacred Sect. The experts were all exceedingly infuriated when they thought about it.
They were the ones who governed this world, and had never been so sullen and depressed before.
However, Qin Wentian didn't know what happened after he left. That maiden who protected him for over ten years had always been silently standing in the shadows never forsaking him. There had been simply too many times where he couldn't even sense her existence.
The matter regarding the Royal Sacred Sect naturally caused a commotion throughout the world. Qin Wentian and the rest actually safely left even after going to the Royal Sacred Sect. As to what happened there, there was evidently no way to keep things under wraps save for the matter where that flawlessly beautiful maiden appeared. At that time, only the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect were present, and they naturally wouldn't publicize what she said.
The Medicine Sovereign arriving, the Realmlord of the Immortal Martial Realm brought so many envoys to his rescue, and invited Qin Wentian to join them once again. Who cared about offending the Royal Sacred Sect? The mysterious Immortal Martial Realm finally appeared in the field of view of the public. So it turned out that the Immortal Martial Realm was also another power that recruited the most talented geniuses of the Royal Sacred Region once every ten years.
Because of this, even the Sacred Emperor of the Royal Sacred Sect had appeared. Although it wasn't his true-self, it was still his immortal will that presented his thoughts.
And in front of the Sacred Emperor, Qin Wentian killed Xia Sheng, Shang Li, and another Heaven Chosen of the Royal Sacred Sect. Zai Qiu who was so haughty, wanting Qin Wentian to admit his guilt earlier, was now hiding under the protection of the experts from his sect, not daring to battle. This was the only reason why he could escape death.
And in front of the Sacred Emperor, Qin Wentian announced to the world that even without joining the Royal Sacred Sect, he could still be unrivalled in Heavenly Dipper, easily killing the Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns of the Royal Sacred Sect. In that case, what use was there to join the Royal Sacred Sect?
This matter was already commotion, hence many were paying attention to it. And so this battle naturally became the topic of discussion for people of the Royal Sacred Region. Using only a short span of half a year, Qin Wentian from fighting against Di Shi on the Sacred Royal Platform to comprehending true intent to him who was currently unrivalled in Heavenly Dipper, and had already completed an astounding transformation. This transformation was something impossible to achieve for the vast majority of cultivators.
There were many who had talent high enough to step into the Celestial Phenomenon Realm, but this didn't mean that at the time when they were in Heavenly Dipper, they could rule that realm unchallenged. In the Royal Sacred Region, there were many ascendants, however for existences like Qin Wentian, you can count them on your fingers. He became the symbol of a generation.
However just when Qin Wentian's name resounded famously throughout the Royal Sacred Region once again, he suddenly vanished completely from sight. For a total of three to four months after he left together with the Medicine Sovereign, there had been no news of him at all.
Some speculated that maybe Qin Wentian had already left the Royal Sacred Region together with the experts of the Immortal Martial Realm. There were also some who speculated that since Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng were already engaged, they might be preparing secretly for their wedding.
Naturally all these were mere speculations.
Qin Wentian didn't really do much in these months, he had been focusing on his cultivation.
Di Tian was still undergoing countless tests in the immortal palace as his strength slowly increased bit by bit. Through these few months, Qin Wentian stayed in the Medicine Sovereign Valley and Mo Qingcheng concocted many pills to aid him in his cultivation. These medicinal pills weren't those that increased one's cultivation, but rather, they helped to stabilize one's foundation and ignite one's latent potential.
Finally, Qin Wentian broke through to the last level - the ninth level of Heavenly Dipper. Although he was already unparalleled in strength a few months ago back in the Royal Sacred Sect, his cultivation base was only at the eighth level then. And now after a few months of hard work, he finally broke through to the ninth level of Heavenly Dipper.
The next realm, was to cast his very own constellation, entering into Celestial Phenomenon.
Right now, the only thing Qin Wentian was depressed about was that even after breaking through the ninth level, Di Tian still had no way to win against those immortals whose cultivation bases were sealed. Those fellows were simply too powerful, their memories and intelligence were unsealed, hence their usage of true intents wasat their very peak. They also had immortal arts that could unleash unimaginable power. Yet even so, Di Tian's rate of improvement was simply astonishing.
Spring arrived. In the Medicine Sovereign Valley, numerous luxurious manors were situated in the center of a range of evergreen mountains. The fragrance of flowers moved the hearts of people, permeating the atmosphere. Even the air here seemed exceptionally fresh and clean.
There were also simple wooden huts around, cloaked by mists from the mountain and making it so that this place resembled a celestial realm. A maiden was leaning against a green-colored railing formed by ancient vines and staring into the horizons. This woman was clad in white and was as beautiful as a celestial maiden. Her eyes were filled with smiles, and she was even more beautiful in comparison to the scenery here.
There was a silhouette that stood behind the white-robed maiden with his hands around her willowy waist. The celestial maiden then leaned back as her head pressed gently against the face of the person behind her. If this scene was seen by others, they would surely envy this young man.
"Lecher." A small white puppy lay nearby with a satisfied look in its eyes. It narrowed them and stared at Qin Wentian lazily, but his baby-like voice was totally disregarded by the two of them. During this period of time, Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng were living together, leading a carefree lifestyle so blissful that even immortals would envy them.
"Why did you stop your cultivation? Master said that you've already managed to fuse your true intents, it shouldn't be too difficult to break through to the Celestial Phenomenon Realm. As long as your cultivation base reached the peak of the ninth level, success would follow naturally." Mo Qingcheng turned and smiled at Qin Wentian.
Staring at that beautiful countenance and rosy red lips, Qin Wentian leaned in for a soft kiss, causing Mo Qingcheng's face to redden as she scolded, "Are you not tired of doing that?"
"You are so beautiful, even if I do this every day for three lifetimes, I won't be tired." Qin Wentian smiled and kissed her again, causing Mo Qingcheng to glare at him before turning her head.
"Qingcheng." At this moment, she only heard Qin Wentian gently calling her name. Mo Qingcheng turned back once more only to feel Qin Wentian hugging her tighter as he stared deeply into her limpid eyes.
"What's the matter?" Mo Qingcheng's heartbeat quickened.
"Marry me." Qin Wentian spoke with deep emotions. It has already been over ten years. From the time they knew each other in Chu, they vowed never to leave each other. The two of them experienced too many things and right now, in the entire Royal Sacred Region, everyone knew about their relationship and were admiring them, giving them their blessings.
Mo Qingcheng's eyes turned red as tears sparkled in her eyes. She had always been waiting, waiting for Qin Wentian to say these words.
Staring at the reddened eyes of Mo Qingcheng, Qin Wentian gently caressed her face as he spoke, "Breaking through to Celestial Phenomenon isn't something that can be accomplished in a day or two. Qingcheng, will you marry me?"
"Mhm," Mo Qingcheng nodded heavily, her tears flowing down because of joy. At this moment, the smile on her face was so beautiful that it could even cause the hearts of people to tremble.
"Where shall we get married at? Shall we hold our wedding here in the Medical Sovereign Valley?" Mo Qingcheng softly asked.
"Wherever we came from, that's naturally where we would return to. Qingcheng, it has been many years since we've left home." Qin Wentian sighed. Ever since Mo Qingcheng was brought to the Pill Emperor Hall, she had never returned to Chu. This trip lasted already for over ten years, how could Mo Qingcheng not miss her clan?
"What about master…?
"Naturally we will invite them for the wedding. Let us first return to Chu." Qin Wentian smiled.
Currents of warmth flowed in Mo Qingcheng's heart, she leaned lightly against Qin Wentian's chest. He really did know what was in her heart.
'Wherever we came from, that's naturally where we would return to.' She had indeed missed home terribly and wished to return to her clan for a visit.
"Wentian, when are we setting off?" Mo Qingcheng asked in a low voice.
"Now, we will move out immediately." Qin Wentian run his fingers through Mo Qingcheng's hair before carrying her in a princess hug and directly soared into the sky. His sudden actions caused Mo Qingcheng to be dumbstruck but soon after, smiles flickered in her eyes, so beautiful that she could topple empires.
"Wait for me!" A baby-like voice whined, and a moment later, a streak of white light zoomed upwards and a puppy jumped onto Qin Wentian's shoulder. Just like this, two humans and a demonic beast soared through the air, heading for the direction of Grand Xia.
The country of Chu, it had already been ten over years since they last saw it. How could Qin Wentian not be filled with longing for his family as well?
Father Qin Chuan, Sister Qin Yao, Teacher Mustang. Were all of them still faring well?
