Zai Qiu initially wanted to deliver a deathblow to Qin Wentian with the three of them joining forces, taking his enemy's life away in this battleground. However, he obviously had never imagined that the situation now would occur. Qin Wentian used only a single strike to kill one of his comrades.
That halberd strike caused them all to be thunderstruck. Their hearts pounded rapidly, even their breathing was affected.
However to Zai Qiu, he didn't have any time to stay shocked. Because, the halberd of Qin Wentian instantly turned onto him. That flickering particle of light seemed to bring him into an illusory world where only that halberd existed. There was no way to dodge that strike, completely no way at all.
Upon feeling that terrifying aura of destruction from the halberd, Zai Qiu involuntarily trembled. He sensed that even if he used his strongest attack in response, he would still have no way to negate the power of that halberd strike.
This halberd strike could penetrate his body, annihilating him completely.
An intense light flashed as a fearsome corrosive energy gushed out. Zai Qiu's fist blasted forth as a divine weapon appeared in his hand. The instant the divine weapon unleashed its power, this entire space seemed to be corroded away. The halberd in Qin Wentian's hand explosively erupted forward while his person retreated, lengthening the distance between him and Zai Qiu.
"Fifth-ranked divine weapon?" Qin Wentian stared at Zai Qiu, looking at a black-colored treasure wielded in his hands. This treasure emanated a fearsome corrosive energy, spreading a web of corruption in all directions. Even the space beside Zai Qiu had already turned black.
"Is this the pride of your Zai Clan? How impressive," Qin Wentian sarcastically remarked. His words causing Zai Qiu to have a burning sensation on his face. He was actually forced to use a fifth-ranked weapon, this undoubtedly indicated that he was useless and needed to depend on the strength of a divine weapon to defend against Qin Wentian's earlier attack.
"Zai Qiu, of the Zai Clan, a Heaven Chosen of the Royal Sacred Sect. How awesomely impressive." The smile of disdain on Qin Wentian's face got wider and wider. He then turned his gaze onto the various experts of the Royal Sacred Sect, only to see their countenances growing ashen and extremely unsightly to behold.
Today, they desired to prove Qin Wentian's guilt and slaughter him on the spot, yet were hindered by the arrival of the Medicinal Sovereign Valley and Immortal Martial Realm's experts, which even caused the immortal will left behind by the Sacred Emperor to manifest. Initially they still believed that the combat strength of Zai Qiu and the others could easily kill Qin Wentian, yet the reality was a complete contrast from what they had imagined. Qin Wentian used absolute strength to kill a Heaven Chosen of the Royal Sacred Sect, and was even such a threat that Zai Qiu had no choice but to use a fifth-ranked divine weapon.
With the Sacred Emperor spectating the battle, the geniuses of the Royal Sacred Sect couldn't even deal with an outsider. How much of a humiliation was this? Not only that, they were even ridiculed by Qin Wentian.
A wave of terrifying dreamforce gushed out as a blood-colored halberd formed in his hands, replacing his earlier one. This was none other than the Scarlet Demon Halberd, similarly a fifth-ranked weapon. Tendrils of his true intent of Dreams infused the halberd as Qin Wentian dashed towards Zai Qiu. With a wave, the Scarlet Demon Halberd smashed out, and instantly Zai Qiu was brought to a blood-red dimension that resembled Purgatory.
When Qin Wentian infused the Scarlet Demon Halberd with his true intent, no matter how resolute or tough Zai Qiu's will was, he would still be dragged into the dreamscape formed by the Scarlet Demon Halberd.
Zai Qiu's divine weapon erupted outwards, blotting out the skies and threads of black corrosion energy permeated the atmosphere, spreading in all directions. However in that blood-red dimension, countless silhouettes of the Scarlet Demon Halberd were blasting towards him, Qin Wentian's silhouettes seemed to be everywhere in that dimension.
"Damn this dreamscape!" Zai Qiu turned pale. Although the attacking power of his divine weapon was strong, he had no way to put it to good use inside the dreamscape.
A blood-colored halberd pierced right into his body causing Zai Qiu to convulse as bean-sized droplets of perspiration unceasingly flowed down. He let out a low-sounding roar filled with agony, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO~"
Underneath the unceasing assault in this strange dreamscape, he would die sooner or later.
An intense sense of danger permeated his being, Zai Qiu heard explosive sounds thundering out from by his side. After which, the dreamscape vanished as he felt his entire body devoid of strength. Panting furiously, and staring in incredulous disbelief, there was a blood-red halberd embedded in the forehead of Xia Sheng before being pulled out and pointed back towards him.
Zai Qiu involuntarily shivered when he saw this scene, he felt his entire body turning ice-cold.
That intense sense of danger was real, Qin Wentian's Scarlet Demon Halberd was going right for him, but his senior had blocked it at the key moment and endured the attack instead, dying on his behalf, killed by the Scarlet Demon Halberd.
A cold wind gusted, Xia Sheng's body turned into dust and dissipated with the wind. He died the same way as the vine-controlling expert earlier, crushed by a single strike.
Qin Wentian's eyes were cold and radiated killing intent. Zai Qiu's eyes reddened and just as Qin Wentian was about to continue his attack, a number of terrifying auras rushed over as a wind enveloped Zai Qiu bringing him away. After which, several experts appeared in front of Qin Wentian.
Zai Qiu, of the Zai Clan, a descendant of the Sacred Emperor. Although the Sacred Emperor said he didn't care, it didn't mean that the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect wouldn't care.
Qin Wentian had already killed Xia Sheng. They all knew if the battle continued, Zai Qiu would surely die at Qin Wentian's hands.
It was already enough, Qin Wentian's arrogance had already reached the limit of what they could take. They can not allow him to kill a descendant of the Sacred Emperor in front of the Sacred Emperor himself.
"I thought we are supposed to settle this grudge ourselves?" Qin Wentian raised his halberd and pointed at the figures in front of him.
"Today, even though the Sacred Emperor does not mind your unbridled arrogance, this matter has already come to an end. Now, just scram." The figures before Qin Wentian all had eyes as sharp as blades as an overwhelming pressure gushed out from them and bore down on Qin Wentian, causing Qin Wentian's arm to feel an extreme sense of heaviness, making it for him to lift his halberd.
"Do you all treat the words of senior Sacred Emperor as fart?" Qin Wentian mocked, his words causing the expressions on the faces of the experts from the Royal Sacred Region to turn stiff. Although the Sacred Emperor was several generations removed from Zai Qiu, they were still distantly related. Most probably, the Sacred Emperor wouldn't want to see one of his descendants dying here today.
"Your strength is pretty outstanding, why don't you join our Royal Sacred Sect?" At this moment a voice drifted out, this voice belonged to none other than the Sacred Emperor.
"Senior Sacred Emperor must have already seen how the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect banded together to bully those weaker. Why must I join it?" Qin Wentian's gaze held a hint of provocation as he stared in the direction of the voice.
"IMPUDENT!" The countenances of the Royal Sacred Sect's experts all turned ashen. In front of the Sacred Emperor, Qin Wentian actually dared to be so impolite?
"The Royal Sacred Sect is the king of the Royal Sacred Region, the king of this world," the Sacred Emperor calmly replied emotionlessly.
"What does that have to do with me? Could it be that you want me to join the Royal Sacred Sect as a servant to these people?" Qin Wentian's countenance was serene as he continued, "Even without joining your Royal Sacred Sect, I can still sweep unchallenged over every Heavenly Dipper Sovereign of the Royal Sacred Sect. In the future, when I step into the peak of Celestial Phenomenon, I can similarly sweep aside every Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant in your sect as well. Tell me then, what use is there to join your Royal Sacred Sect?"
His calm voice was filled with an intense pride and confidence, causing the hearts of people to shiver. Not joining the Royal Sacred Sect, but still possessed the prowess to sweep unchallenged over the Royal Sacred Sect's Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns, reigning supreme in Heavenly Dipper. In that case, what use was there in joining the Royal Sacred Sect?
His words were undoubtedly filled with contempt for the Royal Sacred Sect. However, they were the truth, and hence, the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect didn't know how to rebut his statement.
"Little fellow, you are too arrogant," the Sacred Emperor faintly spoke, and a supreme might from afar enveloped Qin Wentian within. Qin Wentian could make out a pair of eyes radiating scintillating light looking at him, the pressure causing Qin Wentian to feel a sense of breathlessness. At that instant, he only felt his body out of his control, and that pair of eyes that appeared from the void seemed to contain enough sharpness to penetrate his body.
"The path you have to walk, is still very long. You can go," the Sacred Emperor softly spoke as that pressure vanished instantly. His soft voice and calm tone was akin to an order.
He was the Sacred Emperor, an immortal. No matter how outstanding one's talent was, in front of immortals, they were nothing but ants. The Royal Sacred Region had so many talented geniuses throughout the generations, yet how many of them could achieve immortality?
"Thanks for Senior's guidance," Qin Wentian stared in the horizon as he politely replied. No matter what the attitude of the Sacred Emperor was, he was still the Sacred Emperor, he is an immortal.
Qin Wentian had a ferocious tiger in his heart and a resolute will and determination to match. He had no need to prove himself to others whatsoever. The Royal Sacred Region wasn't his final aim. This piece of sky would only be a small part of his life.
After speaking, Qin Wentian turned and held onto Mo Qingcheng's hand. Both of them smiled at each other before they returned to the side of the Medicinal Sovereign.
Since the Sacred Emperor didn't wish for Zai Qiu to die, it was impossible for him to kill Zai Qiu.
The situation today could already be considered peaceful. The various experts of the Royal Sacred Sect didn't act because the experts of the Immortal Martial Realm and Medicine Sovereign had arrived. If not, the Sacred Emperor would never have shown himself.
However, Qin Wentian didn't think that this matter had concluded. He wanted to kill Zai Qiu. Zai Qiu had personally witnessed Xia Sheng dying for him, how could Zai Qiu still spare him in the future?
In any case, the hatred between him and the hegemon of the Royal Sacred Region had simply deepened further.
"Senior Medicine Sovereign, let's leave," Qin Wentian spoke. The Medicinal Sovereign stroked his beard before he smiled and nodded. Qin Wentian was able to calmly meet gains or losses with equanimity, it wasn't something easy to accomplish.
"Sacred Emperor, farewell then," the Medicine Sovereign stared into the distance as he faintly spoke. After which, he led those of the Medicine Sovereign Valley away as they soared through the air.
"Junior Wu Mu shall bid farewell as well." The envoys of the Immortal Martial Realm departed together with him, vanishing so quickly as though they had never appeared. While the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect only felt that their face and prestige had been completely thrown away today.
Qin Wentian today had used his actions to prove to the entire Royal Sacred Region. Even by not joining the Royal Sacred Sect, I am still unrivalled in Heavenly Dipper. For what do I join the Royal Sacred Sect then?
"Are you still not coming out?" A faint voice resounded through the air. This voice belonged to the Sacred Emperor, his words causing the hearts of the experts to clench. Was there still someone hiding in the shadows? They actually had not discovered anything at all.
Within the void, an intense fluctuation of spatial energy manifested as a golden screen of light cascaded from the sky. A lovely, mesmerizing figure descended from the heavens, standing in the air, as dazzling as a celestial maiden.
"Who is this maiden?" Many frowned, it was actually an extremely young lady, yet they hadn't discovered her existence. She must have used a rare spatial treasure.
The eyes of this maiden were glacial as she radiated a chill when she stared at the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect. Her countenance was perfect and flawless and even when standing in front of so many experts from the Royal Sacred Sect, she still exuded a magnificence unmatched in her generation. She even reminded people of Qin Wentian's fiancee Mo Qingcheng. The two of them had different temperaments, yet similarly intense auras.
"If something happens to him, I will level the entire Royal Sacred Sect to the ground." The soft-spoken words of the maiden were cold and emotionless. After which, she turned around and departed, causing the experts of the Royal Sacred Sect to stand there dumbstruck as they even forgot to obstruct her due to the audacity of her words.
The hegemony of the Royal Sacred Region had heard an unprecedented voice of utmost arrogance today!
