"This phenomena, was this caused by Qin Wentian establishing his immortal foundation?" In the royal palace, all the kings and marquises stared in shock at the sky above them. Their immortal senses all swept out, gushing towards Princess Changping's estate.
Princess Changping and the Scarlet Eye Marquis were both staring at the sky as their eyes occasionally glance to the location Qin Wentian was in.
"Is this caused by him?" The Scarlet Eye Marquis murmured.
"Only he and his demonic beasts are the ones cultivating at the cultivation platform. Most probably, this phenomena was caused by him and there's a high possibility he already established his immortal foundation. Let's wait awhile more to see if he exits seclusion then we will know for sure." Princess Changping spoke in a low voice.
"If this phenomena is truly caused by him, that young man is simply too extraordinary. Being able to establish a heavenly phenomena just when establishing an immortal foundation...could it be that the immortal foundation he established is none other than the legendary saint-grade immortal foundation?!" The Scarlet Eye Marquis mused as he smiled, his words causing the beautiful eyes of Princess Changping to flash with a strange light as she spoke, "Establishing a saint-grade immortal foundation would cause a phenomena to be birthed?"
"I'm not sure, there are no information on anything like this in the ancient records. But no matter what, something extraordinary must have happened for the heavens to produce a phenomena. Seems like this young man should be an innate immortal king." The Scarlet Eye Marquis laughed. Qing`er was born with an innate immortal king physique, the lowest accomplishments she would achieve was the immortal king realm. Now that Qin Wentian caused a phenomena by establishing his immortal foundation, his talent was clearly higher even when compared to Qing`er.
At this moment, the illusory phenomena in the sky vanished as everything returned to calmness. However, the attention of everyone was still on Princess Changping's estate.
On the cultivation platform, Qin Wentian's entire body radiated immortal light. With an intention of his will, the light vanished as he opened his eyes. His entire demeanor has changed, and his being emanated immortal might.
"Immortal!" Qin Wentian spoke. The him right now have completed his immortal foundation and fully stepped into the immortal foundation realm. In addition, his cultivation base was incomparably solid, possessing a saint-grade immortal foundation and a perfect physique.
For other stellar martial cultivators, usually when they become immortals, the immortal foundation they established would usually be low-tiered mortal-grade. These people would have limited accomplishments in the future, and mortal-grade immortal foundations didn't have the qualifications to enter the immortal king realm. However that doesn't mean that it was the end of the path for them. As they continued cultivating and increase in cultivation level, there was a chance that their immortal-foundation might level up as they continued infusing their insights into it. Among this lengthy process, the immortal foundation would grow purer and more perfect, slowly upgrading in tiers and grades.
But Qin Wentian was different from others, the moment he completes his immortal foundation, it was already the perfect saint-grade. This indicated that his path during immortal foundation would be incomparably smooth.
And as for combat prowess, there was no doubts that saint-grade immortal foundation can completely dominate lower-graded immortal foundations. For characters at the same cultivation level, even if they were chosens, Qin Wentian had no need to place them in his eye.
Glancing at his surroundings, he discovered that the mountains of resources he prepared had all vanished. He actually prepared several more times the amount needed to break through to immortal foundation yet he hadn't expect that the consumption rate to establish a saint-grade immortal foundation would be so terrifying to the point where it was completely inconceivable. For stellar martial cultivators who had no background, it was apparent they would face difficulty even if they want to establish the lowest-grade foundations. They had to take risk and go on adventure, fight with their lives on the line for treasures or join a major power.
In addition, the immortal foundation was merely the starting step on the path of becoming truly strong. It has a total of nine levels, and the amount of cultivation resources required wasn't something Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants could imagine. This was why there were so many immortal-foundation experts having to work for others. With no background, one can only depend on hardwork and effort to continue forging ahead.
100 years to establish an immortal foundation, 10,000 years to become an immortal king. These individuals were all considered geniuses. The cultivation path would only grow more and more difficult as one continued advancing.
Luckily for the current Qin Wentian, at the first step of becoming an immortal, could only be described as perfect.
Closing his eyes, Qin Wentian didn't exit seclusion immediately and continued to cultivate. With the Sky Demon Oracle Bone in his hand, he cultivated the fiendgod body refinement art. Although his first step was a large stride on the path, he wasn't satisfied yet. He wanted to be in the most perfect state ever as only then, each of his continued steps down the pathway of cultivation would all be perfect. Such a cultivation path wouldn't have any bottlenecks, it would be incomparably smooth instead.
Others were considered geniuses for them to become immortal kings within 10,000 years. However, Qin Wentian had no wish to take that long.
Qin Wentian still hadn't exitted his seclusion?
The people in the royal palace discovered that Qin Wentian was still in seclusion and couldn't help but to be puzzled. Could it be he haven't established his immortal foundation yet?
And just when numerous kings and marquises started to pay attention to Qin Wentian, Yang An and Mu Feng who has also been in seclusion, finally came out. They had completed their immortal foundations and truly stepped into the immortal foundation realm completely. This caused quite a stir in the royal palace as after all, it was extremely rare that these two were able to complete their foundations within such a short time to enter the immortal foundation realm fully.
Both Yang An and Mu Feng's immortal foundation was at the mortal grade. However, Yang An's immortal foundation was the third tier while Mu Feng's one was slightly inferior, merely at the second tier.
Qing`er, Little Rascal, Purgatory were still in their seclusion, they wouldn't exit until they complete their immortal foundations.
Today, Qin Wentian finally halted his cultivation. His flesh shone with a brilliant light and appeared as though he was clad in armor.
Turning his gaze over, Little Rascal and Purgatory was still absorbing the law energy from their innate constellations and were at the critical points of their cultivation. He didn't disturb them, he closed his eyes once more as his perception turned inward into his sea of consciousness. Over there, the figure of a tiny astral-being could be seen shimmering in and out of existence.
"Now that I've already become an immortal, the energy in my body is infinitesimally vaster compared to when I was an ascendent. It should be enough to open up more astral fragments containing the memories my father left behind right?" Qin Wentian mused. His immortal sense gushed towards the tiny astral-being and very swiftly, he entered into the starry space.
"The memories in the outer layers wouldn't prove to be much use. What I want is the core memories, only then can I discovered what exactly father has experienced back then!" Qin Wentian's immortal sense drilled in deeper and deeper. He had once saw his parents in a memory locked by an astral fragment. That man with an indomitable spirit, as well as that woman that exuded magnificence through the generations, had given their everything to him who was still in his infancy then.
Why would his parents have to do this? Why would Uncle Black and the others be so secretive and cautious in their movements? They even went so far to bring him to a remote particle world, observing his growth step by step.
He knew of his parents strength, and that it was sufficient to ensure that he grew up in the best environment with boundless resources and guidance instead of starting from the absolute bottom.
Qin Wentian's immortal sense dove deep into the depths of the tiny astral-being. His fearsome immortal might gushed into the resplendent fragments and all of a sudden, the sound of shattering rangout and there was a boom in Qin Wentian's mind. A moment later, scenes of memories played out in his mind.
"Break, break, break, break, BREAK!" Qin Wentian's immortal sense was in a frenzy, his immortal foundation flared with brilliant light, providing him with immortal might as he frenziedly shatter the astral fragments. The tiny astral-being was like a black hole, devouring all the energy as it lit up. One hour...two hour.. and gradually, his immortal foundation dimmed. Qin Wentian was still using astronomical amounts of immortal energy to break the memory fragments. A few fragments weren't sufficient. He wanted to know the entirety of the story.
Although Uncle Black had promised to tell him, right now he didn't even know where Uncle Black was. It would be more direct to open up the memories stored in the tiny astral-being.
Finally, Qin Wentian's immortal sense retreated. Countless memories appeared in his mind. He closed his mind and slowly digested them.
The memories blended together, Qin Wentian saw the growing up process of a young man.
That was a lonely young man. A radiant palace, an ancient race, the buildings in his surroundings were as majestic as those constructed for gods. The majesticness of the scene in Qin Wentian's mind was something he had never witnessed before. This place seemed to be the residence of Gods. Regardless was it the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect or Evergreen Immortal Empire's royal palace. They all paled in comparison.
However despite the environment, this young man seemed to exude loneliness. He had a palace belonging to himself, he was the king of the younger generations, he had many slaves and servants who were extremely powerful and loyal, treating him as their sovereign.
His loneliness was because he had no companion. In fact, he didn't even have parents.
These memories weren't completely connected. Hence there were many things Qin Wentian could only speculate. This young boy seemed to be the descendant of an ancient and powerful clan. However, he was merely one of the descendants. He possessed an incomparable glorious status and had his own immortal palace that was far grander than the royal palace of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.
However, he was alone. In the memories, an old figure appeared. It was an elder on the grandparents level. He brought the young man away, sending him to mingle with heaven chosens from different factions in the clan whose status was just as noble and esteemed as his. He cultivated together with them, underwent many brutal tempering exercises. These geniuses he mixed with were all extraordinary, each possessing overwhelming talent. On the contrary, he seemed to be the most ordinary one among them, only having an average performance. This led to many people shunning him, unwilling to interact with him, causing him to be even more lonely.
There were only two who were the exception - a boy and a girl. They were the most outstanding elites among this bunch, and were both young kings and queens. They were like the moon adorned by the countless twinkling stars, and all the elders doted on them both. Their statuses were naturally extraordinary, as all the nurturing, care and guidance of the clan was fully focused on them.
The memories were disjointed. The young boy grew up, his familiar handsome features finally made Qin Wentian understood that it was none other than the man he saw before in the memories of the past. This boy was his father, he was incomparably resolute and had experienced countless things. In the end, he grew stronger and stronger as his demeanor became more outstanding. He went out to temper himself, roaming the world and experiencing all sorts of trials and calamity. From a young boy, he grew to become a man with an indomitable spirit.
He fell in love with that young girl who once was close to him. However, the other boy whom he regarded as a brother, had also fallen in love with the girl. The two of them seemed like the perfect match made in the heaven, they were like monarchs among the younger generations, envied by countless people and eventually getting together. Although he felt hurt in his heart, he still sent his blessings, and gave up the most valuable treasure on him as a gift. After which, he chose to leave alone, roaming the world once more.
The years passed by, he encountered the most important woman in his life. Staring at that young woman, Qin Wentian's heart instantly trembled. This was none other than his mother.
In the memories Qin Wentian unlocked, the scenes of his parent's first encounter was there. Evidently to his father Qin Yuanfeng, this memory was extremely precious. That young woman was as beautiful as a celestial, exuding magnificence through the generations, emanating carefree-ness. She didn't bothered about him at first, holding him in disdain. Yet he persisted on, falling in love at first sight, admiring her wholeheartedly as he frenziedly pursued her!
