1472 Xu Qingyao
In the City of Ancient Emperors, all the experts here were struck by shock as they watched Zi Daolong being killed.
This Saber-Sword Immortal King actually really did it. He humiliated the projection of the Violet Emperor, telling him to scram and beheaded Zi Daolong.
Before this, Zi Daolong insulted him, wanting to slaughter him but now, Zi Daolong was the one who died in such a miserable state.
Zi Daolong's death caused the other battles to cease. After all, the most core character in this entire area was none other than Zi Daolong. He was the one who wanted to kill the female devil priestess, which led to such a large-scale combat. Now that Zi Daolong has died, everyone was in a daze.
The experts from the Violet Mountain all trembled one after another, staring at Zi Daolong's corpse, not daring to believe that this sight was real.
In the immortal realms, the son of an immortal emperor was a character almost none would offend, they naturally wouldn't die so easily. Let alone the fact that Zi Daolong was a peak-stage immortal king. Even if Zi Daolong offended a supreme character, that person would still have to consider Zi Daolong's background and wouldn't dare to kill him. After all, the revenge by a peak-stage immortal emperor was something nobody wanted to face.
However, Zi Daolong offended a madman. This Saber-Sword Immortal King directly slew Zi Daolong in front of everyone.
Leaving aside the people from the Violet Mountain, even many from the Heavenly Talisman Realm were taken aback. They didn't expect that Qin Wentian would be so ruthless, killing Zi Daolong directly.
"You killed Zi Daolong, the Violet Emperor will never spare you. The immortal kings from the Violet Mountains will definitely come to the City of Ancient Emperors to hunt you down. Sir, you might need to leave this place earlier and hide away for a period of time." Bujie transmitted his voice to Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian's eyes flashed, he glanced at Bujie and replied out loud, "Back then at the Gazing Emperor City, Zi Daolong has already insulted me, saying that I'm not qualified to be on equal standing with him and he had already wanted to kill me back then. However, reality has proven that Zi Daolong was merely so-so. With such weak strength, he actually wanted to kill this seat? How would this seat spare him? I'll kill those who wish to kill me."
Qin Wentian spoke in a domineering tone, further reinforcing his image as the Saber-Sword Immortal King in case others suspected that he had some other grudges with Zi Daolong.
He came to the City of Ancient Emperors using the identity of the Saber-Sword Immortal King, and through competing with others, he would definitely make enemies. By using two different identities was undoubtedly the better choice.
"You guys better be prepared to suffer the wrath of the Violet Emperor." A peak-stage immortal king from the Violet Mountain coldly spoke. His body was trembling, as he was still feeling the chills from Zi Daolong's death.
"I originally also planned to kill Zi Daolong. For this grudge, I shall be implicated no matter what. Since this is the case, let's continue the slaughter. There's no need to show mercy." Bai Qing immediately commended decisively.
The person she hated was the Violet Emperor. As a peak-stage immortal emperor, he actually ignored his status and attacked Qin Wentian. Since the Violet Emperor already wanted to kill her Wentian gege, there was no need for any discussion then, she would not give a damn any longer and the reason she was originally here was to hunt down Zi Daolong.
"How dare you!" That peak-stage immortal king roared in rage. However, numerous devil cultivators already rushed forth. Qin Wentian's eyes were incomparably cold. With a flash of his silhouette, he coordinated his attacks with the devil cultivators as they killed their way towards the experts of the Violet Mountain.
To him, things were simple. In the future, these people would all be enemies that want his life. He will kill as many as he can now.
"What should we do?" The experts from the Skymist Immortal Empire, the Paragon Sword Sect and their allies exchanged mutual glances as they transmitted their voices in conversation. After Zi Daolong died, the situation would no longer be so easy to control.
Tuoba Saintsky and Jun Mengchen's group were transmitting their voices too. Jun Mengchen spoke, "Senior Tuoba, these experts from the other eastern powers are all hesitating, they most probably no longer intend to fight. How about us blocking them and allow senior brother Qin and the devil cultivators to be at ease as they deal with the experts from the Violet Mountain?"
"Mhm, good idea." Tuoba Saintsky nodded. They all released their auras and moved towards the Skymist Immortal Empire and their allies. Just as Jun Mengchen expected, these people no longer had the heart to battle but it wouldn't look too good if they abandoned the experts from the Violet Mountain and left just like that. Hence, when they fought against Jun Mengchen and the others, they intentionally shifted their battle further and didn't put in all their effort.
The experts from the Violet Mountain were soon surrounded. Qin Wentian continued his massacre until a point where a peak-stage immortal king there roared, "Let's retreat!"
As the sound of his voice faded, the experts of the Violet Mountain all dispersed in different directions. However, how could the devil cultivators and Qin Wentian allow them to flee? A prison made of judicial power as well as his suppressive law domain was instantly unleashed, restricting their movements as they continued the slaughter. At the very end, only a very few peak-stage immortal kings managed to escape. The others all died here.
As for the immortal kings from the Skymist Immortal Empire and their alliance, they actually already silently left the battlefield.
"Zi Daolong really died a wronged death. These people all understood that the Violet Emperor would be enraged after they saw Zi Daolong dying. They are hoping the Violet Emperor would send more forces here to kill these people for them. They wanted to save their strength."
"The bonds of an alliance of different major powers naturally wouldn't be so solid."
The spectators discussed. Qin Wentian glanced at the battlefield, he then turned to Bujie, Bai Qing and the other devil cultivators as he spoke, "Everyone, we have to be more cautious in the future."
"Saber-Sword Immortal King, you have to be more careful too." Bujie reminded. After all, they had fought side by side. Even if they had no idea the Saber-Sword Immortal King was Qin Wentian, they still felt good will towards him. After this battle, they were already like friends.
Qin Wentian clasped his hands. After that, he cast a glance in Jun Mengchen's direction before he departed the area. He wasn't afraid that the experts from the Violet Mountain would find trouble for him. Earlier, his act of killing Zi Daolong was definitely enough to shock several supreme immortal kings. Zi Daolong might only be at the initial-phase of the peak-stage, but his combat prowess was undoubtedly equivalent to an immortal king at the late-phase. But even so, he still died to the Saber-Sword Immortal King.
This made it so that everyone who wanted to deal with him, had to first think through their actions carefully.
The immortal kings who were spectating all sighed as they left respectively. The news of Zi Daolong's death soon circulated around the City of Ancient Emperors, creating quite a huge commotion. When the news got out, the immortal realms were shocked as well. After all, Zi Daolong was quite famous, a peak-stage immortal king as well as a son of the Violet Emperor, yet he was still killed. This caused many supreme immortal kings to feel curious about the mysterious Saber-Sword Immortal King.
After that, more news circulated out. Before this Saber-Sword Immortal King killed Zi Daolong, he had already slain several other immortal kings, including a peak-stage immortal king from the Paragon Sword Sect. In an instant, the name of the Saber-Sword Immortal King resounded throughout the entire City of Ancient Emperors as many immortal kings started to discuss about this madman. This crazy fellow didn't have the peak powers of the immortal realms in his eyes at all.
After that, there were many immortal kings in the City of Ancient Emperors who wanted to challenge the Saber-Sword Immortal King and see how strong he was exactly to be able to kill Zi Daolong.
There were some saying that the son of the Violet Emperor, Zi Daolong, was simply someone that wasn't worthy of his reputation. A peak-stage immortal king like him actually got killed by a mid-stage one? This was an inglorious battle, and even if Zi Daolong didn't die, he wouldn't be able to lose this amount of face too.
Naturally, there were also people who revered the Saber-Sword Immortal King's courage. There were even some people who wanted to meet with this Saber-Sword Immortal King, seeing what sort of person he was exactly, able to kill Zi Daoyang in such a scene where there were so many experts of the Violet Mountain gathered. Even daring to tell the Violet Emperor to scram, and killing the immortal kings from the Paragon Sword Sect and Taihua Immortal Dynasty.
After several days, outside an ancient palace in the City of Ancient Emperors, countless experts were gathered there. They were all staring at the dilapidated-looking palace as their eyes gleamed with sharpness.
There were countless secrets hidden in the City of Ancient Emperors. The experts here were constantly searching, hoping to uncover them.
"Who is he?" Right now, there was a person sitting cross-legged outside the ancient palace, with his eyes closed in meditation.
"What a shocking amount of emperor's fate." Someone glanced at the emperor's fate behind his back. Such a character was not good to antagonize. His emperor's fate was too dazzling, and clearly indicated his fearsome battle achievements, collecting the fear and respect from many individuals. Only such a character would be able to amass so much emperor's fate.
"Saber and sword." Someone noticed that this figure had a saber and a sword strapped behind him. Momentarily, that person's eyes flashed with excitement. Right now, the Saber-Sword Immortal King is extremely famous, his deeds circulating around the City of Ancient Emperors.
"You are the Saber-Sword Immortal King?" A voice rang out. A moment later, some of the immortal kings actually stepped to the side, opening up a pathway as several figures walked through them.
The person in the lead was actually a female immortal king. She was extremely beautiful and just a glance at her was sufficient to sense the aura of nobility. This woman was able to cause the beauty of the moon to pale. By standing there, she became the center of attention of everyone, attracting their gazes.
"Xu Qingyao." The immortal kings stared at this female, instantly knowing her identity. She was a top-tier beauty in the central regions. Not only was she beautiful, her talent is shockingly high as well, causing many males to hold her in envy, and invoking jealousy in other females.
Qin Wentian still had his eyes closed, it was as though he hasn't heard the words. During these days, many people came and caused a disturbance. Maybe it was because of the incident where he killed Zi Daolong, many people managed to guess his identity just glancing at the sword and saber on his back.
"I'm speaking to you. By ignoring me, are you not being a little too rude?" A light smile appeared on Xu Qingyao's face, instantly causing the atmosphere to lite up. She curiously surveyed Qin Wentian, this man who was a mid-stage immortal king yet powerful enough to kill Zi Daolong.
Xu Qingyao was also a mid-stage immortal king and she was at the peak-phase of it. The man before her was also a mid-stage immortal king and he only used a single day for his name to resound throughout the entire City of Ancient Emperors.
"What do you want me to reply?" Qin Wentian opened his eyes and glanced at her. His eyes flickered with a bright light, as he was somewhat taken aback. This woman before him was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful ones he had ever seen. Her graceful figure was perfectly accentuated by her clothing, she also had a flawless countenance that could only be described as stunning.
"Saber-Sword Immortal King, I wish to discuss the dao with you. Am I not qualified enough for you to speak?" Xu Qingyao stared at the flickering light in Qin Wentian's eyes as her smile grew even more radiant.
Qin Wentian silently mused at what a beauty this woman was. He stood up and laughed, "With a beauty like you, how boring would it be to discuss the dao? Why don't we discuss romance, flirting around with each other and weave poetry about the wind, the flowers, the snow and the moon? Wouldn't that be more excellent?"
The expressions of everyone instantly changed as they stared at the Saber-Sword Immortal King. This fellow was truly audacious, daring enough to kill Zi Daolong and even tease Fairy Xu with words. Could it be that he had no idea who Xu Qingyao was? Xu Qingyao wasn't someone so easily teased with words. There was once a peak-stage immortal king who did so and ended up extremely miserably. There was in fact, no need even for Xu Qingyao to act personally
