Qin Wentian glanced at the teasing smile of Juyu and he involuntarily stated, "What do you think the third princess is looking for me for?"
"How would I know? Maybe she became fond of you?" A smile of interest appeared on Juyu's face, causing Qin Wentian to glare at her.
"I'm the last-ranked devil general of the past and I didn't have any chance to interact with the Central Devil Palace. The third princess is naturally the daughter of the devil king, her status isn't something us generals can be compared to. It's just that other than devil king and the devil lords in the sect, all external matters are dealt with by devil generals. For those bottom ranking generals, the central palace might not care about them. But they would definitely pay attention to the top few generals."
"As for you, since you replaced Zong Yan not too long ago, I wouldn't believe it if the people of the central palace held no curiosity over you."
Juyu slowly spoke. "I've never met the third princess before so I can't give any comments on her. Since she wants to meet you, it might be an opportunity for you. Let's head over there now."
"What opportunity?" Qin Wentian asked.
"Didn't you want to find some people? Although you can use our devil palace and Lu Xuejia's influence, it is still not sufficient. If you want things to go smoothly, it's best to use the entire sect's influence." Juyu spoke.
"That's true also. Come together with me." Qin Wentian spoke.
"The third princess wanted to meet you, not to meet me. I will bring you to the entrance but you have to enter alone. Without her orders, I won't be able to enter there." Juyu was very clear of her own status. Now, she was only a devil protector. She naturally wouldn't be able to go in there.
"Right." Qin Wentian nodded lightly. After that, the two of them soared through the air, flying towards the central palace with Juyu leading.
"Why would the attendant come by just to pass on some words from the princess?" On the way there, Qin Wentian asked.
"Although attendants of the devil king can meet the devil king, however considering how strong the devil king is, is there a need for the attendants to constantly guard him? Attendants are merely an identity that could stay inside the central palace. It's only natural that they are acquainted with the princes and princesses." Juyu spoke. The two of them continued on their way and arrived before the imposing central devil palace.
"The third-ranked devil general Qin Wentian is here according to the third princess' orders. Someone, please lead the way." Juyu walked up to the guards as she stated.
One of the guards glanced at Qin Wentian as he spoke, "Sir general, please follow me."
Qin Wentian walked up. Juyu nodded to him and after that, Qin Wentian followed after the guard.
On the journey there, he encountered many change of escort before he finally arrived at the residence of the third princess.
The style of the third princess's residence was different from the devil general palaces. It exuded elegance and beauty, and was similar to those residences seen in the immortal realms. Small bridges built atop flowing water, leading to beautiful pavilions. The surroundings were filled with spirit energy.
Qin Wentian followed the guard. After which, he saw several people sitting by the side of the lake, drinking tea and chatting leisurely.
These figures were all extraordinary. Qin Wentian even saw the first and second devil generals here. Other than them, the fourth devil general was here as well.
Evidently, the third princess didn't only invite him. However, the third princess has already met the other devil generals before. This time around, the main point was for her to meet Qin Wentian.
Other than the three devil generals, there were also some other young men here. Their auras weren't any inferior to the three generals. And that direct attendant who invited him was here as well.
Qin Wentian turned his gaze onto the woman on the lead seat. Although she was a princess of the devil sect, she was clad in robes of pristine white. Despite merely sitting there, one could see her long fair legs, and her delicate and beautiful figure. If she stood up, she would definitely be a beauty with an extremely alluring figure.
Her looks contained traces of grace and exquisiteness. Other than this, there was also a devilish aura of experts from the devil path, causing one to feel a sense of distance.
These people naturally knew of Qin Wentian's arrival. However, their gazes didn't shift as they continued what they were doing. The devil attendant who invited Qin Wentian coldly glanced at his direction as a mocking smile could be seen on his face. Before this, he went over to invite Qin Wentian personally, but Qin Wentian didn't give him any face at all. Now, he wanted to see what would Qin Wentian do.
"May I ask who is the princess?" Qin Wentian clearly knew the answer but he still asked anyway. For a princess of a devil sect, there was no need for him to keep waiting for her.
"Impudent." The attendant nearby berated. He coldly stared at Qin Wentian, "Didn't you see the princess is currently discussing matters with the other generals? Just wait here for your turn."
"I, Qin, still have something to do. If princess is busy, I will come back to pay my respects another day."
Qin Wentian wasn't angry either. His voice was extremely calm as he turned about to leave. His actions caused the attendant beside him to freeze.
"What guts!" A cold voice rang out. Qin Wentian halted his steps. The fourth-ranked devil general Pang Huang icily spoke. "Her highness invited you over, yet you dared to act so rudely."
"If I don't remember wrongly, you should be the fourth-ranked general? You better be more polite when speaking to me, the third-ranked." Qin Wentian's back was facing Pang Huang as he spoke. "If not, I wouldn't mind paying a visit to your devil palace."
Pang Huang froze. In reality, it was hard for him to meet with the third princess. The chance today was incredibly rare and he naturally had to show a good performance, which was why he said that earlier. Who would have thought that Qin Wentian's reply would be so domineering.
As the fourth-ranked general, his strength was clearly inferior to the previous third-ranked Zong Yan. And as for this man before him, it was an expert who could kill Zong Yan.
"How arrogant." The second general Blood Butcher laughed.
The third princess turned her gaze over and smiled, "General Qin, there's no need to be angered. I was the one who invited you to gather here. Come on over for a seat."
Only then did Qin Wentian turned about. The third princess' beautiful eyes flashed with a bright light. Qin Wentian had met many girls before in the Blackstone Devil Sect, and among those, Lu Xuejia was the most beautiful with an extraordinary air. But if just based on looks alone, this third princess was even more outstanding than her. Also, the coldness radiating from her wasn't an ordinary one, but one borne of pride.
"Many thanks princess." Qin Wentian nodded and walked over. There was an open seat next to the princess. She then smiled, "General Qin, please be seated."
As the sound of her voice rang out, the eyes of everyone gleamed with sharpness. Qin Wentian was sitting beside the princess?
Qin Wentian naturally could sense the gazes of everyone. He frowned. Such preferential treatment wasn't any good thing.
"I've long acquainted with everyone here. This time around, my main point of inviting you here, is to see how the new third-ranked devil general is. I'm sure everyone wouldn't mind, right?" The third princess gazed at the people here, there was a trace of imposiness mixed within her smile.
Her status was extremely lofty, even if the people here were unhappy, they wouldn't say it out loud. Since the princess has already spoken, they could only sigh coldly in their hearts and stared at Qin Wentian who was sitting right next to the princess.
"I heard that you, Qin Wentian, are a cultivator from the immortal realms. Is this true?" The third princess lifted up a teapot and poured tea personally for Qin Wentian.
"Replying to princess, I, Qin, did come from the immortal realms." Qin Wentian hurriedly took the tea cup the princess passed over. When he stared at her beautiful eyes, his own eyes suddenly flashed with a bright glow, as though he wanted to see what the third princess was thinking.
The eyes of truth could see through all illusions. In those beautiful eyes, Qin Wentian didn't see any malicious intents. It seemed that it was true that this princess was just curious regarding him, and she also seemed to have some questions for him.
"What's the difference between the immortal realms and the Myriad Devil Islands?"
"Virtually the same." Qin Wentian replied.
"What about cultivation?" The princess asked.
"The devil arts are more domineering and tyrannical. Among the devil cultivation arts I've seen in the third-ranked general palace, the methods of cultivation are harder compared to the ones in the immortal realms. But if one can successfully cultivate the devil arts to a high level, the power unleashed would be more violent and overwhelming."
"Qin Wentian if you want to change your path to the devil path, would there be any difficulties?"
"Nope. I, Qin's foundation is extremely solid. Even if devil arts are incomparably tyrannical in nature, it wouldn't influence me." Qin Wentian spoke in confidence.
"You said that devil arts are more tyrannical. However, Zong Yan was a character at the peak of devil-foundation while you are only at the seventh-level. How did you kill him then?" The princess smiled at him. This was the reason why she was so curious about him. A cultivator from the immortal realms could actually jump two levels to kill Zong Yan.
In that case, this means that Qin Wentian must also be a supreme heaven chosen character in the immortal realms. Also, she could tell that he had his own pride and self-confidence. Despite sitting beside her, and although he appeared polite, there was no traces of nervousness, panic, or reverence in his eyes.
Such a gaze was as though he was looking at an ordinary female. This made her somewhat shocked in her heart. Also earlier, she felt that Qin Wentian's gaze seemed capable of seeing through her. She has never felt this way before. It was like her clothes were stripped bare for all to see.
"Even if the levels between devils and immortals are similar, there is still a distinction between strong and weak. Cultivation ultimately still depends on oneself, who can say for sure that devil cultivators are stronger than immortal cultivators?" Qin Wentian spoke.
"You are saying that you are very strong?"
At this moment, a cold and sharp voice rang out. Everyone inclined their heads only to see the first devil general sitting in the lead seat below the princess staring at Qin Wentian. After that, expressions of interest appeared on the faces of everyone. They understood that Qin Wentian had completely managed to rouse the hatred of the first devil general.
Many of those bottom-ranked generals might have no idea. But for the people here, who didn't admire the third princess? The first devil general has always been wooing her.
Qin Wentian stared at the expression of the first devil general before casting a glance at the princess. He instantly understood some things.
However, even if this was so, why did he need to care about the first devil general?
"Whether one is strong or weak, it will be judged by others. It's not something you say yourself." Qin Wentian replied.
"If I want to kill Zong Yan, he would have died long ago. I'm merely preserving some strength for the devil sect." The first devil general coldly spoke.
"I believe it." Qin Wentian laughed. "However, so what? Does this have something to do with him?"
"Most probably, it wouldn't be too difficult if I want to kill any of the devil generals." The first devil general spoke again.
Qin Wentian was also one of the devil generals.
Qin Wentian stared at him and calmly spoke, "Before this, I have no idea. But now, it may not be so."
In the air, an extremely sharp intent could be felt. Despite so, it already felt that the first devil general was suppressing it!
