After Qin Wentian and his group left the Heaven Immortal Tower, their good mood was completely destroyed and naturally, they didn't have any feeling to continue touring Time City and chose to return to their inn.
Jin Zhi was at the empyrean level but she was imprisoned in a space bubble behind Qin Wentian and couldn't move at all. That terrifying pressure caused her to feel like breaking down. She understood that with a single thought, Qin Wentian could cause her to die instantly right now.
At this moment, she felt both rage and fear. Rage because Qin Wentian actually dared to act against her and used such a method to forcibly bring her away. He was so tyrannical that Old Huo and the other two world overlords didn't dare to protect her. She naturally understood what this meant, Old Huo felt that none of them were able to stop Qin Wentian. Or to simply put, the disparity in their strengths was too great. If not, since her boyfriend had given the order, how would Old Huo not do his best?
Hence, this was why she felt fear now. She was worried that Qin Wentian might really do something to her.
On their way back, many people glanced over at the imprisoned her. These included those customers from the Heaven Immortal Tower who followed them out to watch the drama. She felt that she was incomparably humiliated due to being paraded around like this in public.
"I'm the girlfriend of a genius world overlord from the Dragon Pool Manor. Do you understand what you are doing? If you still don't release me, you and your woman both have to pay an unimaginable price." Jin Zhi spoke with anger, she wasn't able to endure the gazes from the crowd.
"I don't care whose woman are you. But since you've insulted my wife, you will be the one who pays a price for your words." Qin Wentian icily spoke. Ye Zi, who was at the side, felt her heart tremble when she heard that, she didn't expect Qin Wentian to be so domineering, directly bringing Jin Zhi away from the Heaven Immortal Tower, not giving face at all. In addition, he completely ignored the three other world overlords and none of them dared to stop him as well.
"What sort of power is the Dragon Pool Manor?" Qin Wentian asked Ye Zi. For Qingcheng, he didn't mind creating trouble. But no matter what, he had to understand the strength of the major power he offended. He wouldn't really lose all his rationale just because he was angered. By doing this, the most important reason was for Qingcheng. He wasn't able to endure some things. That was his reverse scale. And as for the secondary reason behind his actions, it was naturally because of his confidence in himself.
Ye Zi had a face filled with black lines, she was completely speechless. Earlier, I've reminded you to take a step back. You don't even know what sort of major power the Dragon Pool Manor is and you directly dared to stir up trouble?
Naturally, it was impossible for her to say such words. Hence, she simply shook her head and replied, "The Dragon Pool Manor is one of the peak powers in Time City. Their experts are as numerous as the clouds and they have several world overlords. The Dragon Pool Manor Lord is also the clan leader of the Dragon Pool Manor, he has long already entered the world overlord realm countless years ago and is now already at the peak of this cultivation realm. As to how strong he is, I'm not too sure either. After all, I've never met such a character, I've only heard rumors about him before."
World Overlords cannot be classified into different tiers of cultivation, this was why it was very hard to describe one's strength clearly. In any case, he should be very powerful or the Dragon Pool Manor wouldn't be able to become a peak power.
"Mhm." Qin Wentian calmly nodded.
"Did you hear it yet? Quickly release me. If you release me now, maybe your punishment won't be so heavy. If not, you won't be able to imagine the consequences." Jin Zhi, who was floating behind, coldly spoke.
Qin Wentian didn't even glance at her. He only icily replied, "Do you truly have no idea about your current circumstances? As the girlfriend of one of the Dragon Pool Manor's World Overlords, you are actually working as a serving girl in the Heaven Immortal Tower. It's evident that you don't have any impressive background. Could it be that you assume after such a huge matter has happened, after you had thrown all his face, that world overlord would still admit that you are his girlfriend? Does he not want face any more?"
Jin Zhi felt chills suddenly when she heard Qin Wentian's words. She wasn't a foolish person and in truth, she can be considered very intelligent. When Qin Wentian designed that little trick earlier causing her to use her hands to pass the dress over, she already knew that she had fallen into a trap. And now, with Qin Wentian's reminder, how could she not understand her current situation?
Just like what Qin Wentian has said, she was a serving girl in the Heaven Immortal Tower and from this, it was clear that she wasn't from any impressive background and wouldn't have any chance to enter the Dragon Pool Manor in the future. Also, now that such a thing happened today and she was forcibly brought away by Qin Wentian in public, this was truly an extremely embarrassing matter. She, whose status was originally already not high, still wished that she could be that world overlord's girlfriend? Even the Dragon Pool Manor couldn't afford to lose so much face, right? It was evident that the world overlord would break up with her. In fact, he might even not recognize her existence and would treat her as an ordinary serving girl from now on.
"Even so, your actions today have already offended him to the max." Jin Zhi's expression grew somewhat malevolent. Even if she wasn't going to be recognized as the world overlord's girlfriend, how could Qin Wentian have a good end?
"Ridiculous to the extreme." Qin Wentian mocked. "Do you really think that just for your sake alone, the entire Dragon Pool Manor would mobilize their forces? As for your so-called 'boyfriend,' although I've never met him before and don't know who he is, but seeing that he even wants a woman like you, the strength he possesses shouldn't be too great."
These words were an insult to Jin Zhi, and it was also a sign of his confidence.
The fear in Jin Zhi's heart grew even more intense. She suddenly felt regret. It was possible that she might have to pay a very high price for her earlier actions, even to the extent where all her earlier efforts in getting her into her current position were going to be wasted. Also, there were many beauties around Qin Wentian. Leaving aside their strength, none of their beauty was inferior to hers. No wonder he dared to say words such as 'seeing that he even wants a woman like you.' This was great contempt with regards to her.
Although she thought like this in her heart, she didn't want to admit it. She still held hope and her gaze turned even more venomous.
The gaze which Ye Zi used to look at Qin Wentian gradually changed. She discovered that she might have underestimated this outsider world overlord. His domineering behavior wasn't because of impulse, it was also because of his confidence.
The news of what happened in the Heaven Immortal Tower swiftly circulated out. Through the usage of messaging crystals, many people in Time City learned of this quickly. The circulation of the news was so swift that even the inn Qin Wentian was staying was discovered by these busybodies. The inn was a famous one named the Ten Miles Inn. The price of lodgings and food there was very high and only world overlords would usually be able to afford to stay there.
Hence, more and more people decided to gather around the Ten Miles Inn. They wanted to see how the Dragon Pool Manor would handle this.
At this moment, there were still many customers inside the Heaven Immortal Tower. There was a particular group of people who had very outstanding auras. The people in the lead was a young man and a maiden. The young man was extremely young but his cultivation was unfathomably deep, at the world overlord realm. The maiden was just an empyrean but there was a group of followers, all at the world overlord realm standing behind them. From this, one could very well imagine how high their status is.
"I've already investigated clearly, they are staying in the Ten Miles Inn." The young man spoke to the maiden beside him. He was handsome and elegant and had an extraordinary appearance, with a magnificent bearing. The woman was even more striking, she had a sense of nobility and her beautiful eyes glowed with luster, sparkling like the stars. She also exuded an extraordinary demeanor.
"Little Princess, why are you suddenly so interested with regards to that world overlord?" The young man smiled and asked. They came to Time City and decided to head to the Heaven Immortal Tower because it was very famous. Who would have thought that they would witness the entire incident between the serving girl and Qin Wentian?
"Don't you feel that it's very interesting?" The maiden being addressed as 'little princess,' smiled brightly, causing the nearby people to be in a daze when they saw it.
"Don't tell me that you felt it's interesting because you saw that world overlord taking out 20,000 world stones for the sake of his wife? If little princess is fond of any treasures here, just let me know. I can take out 20,000 world stones too." The young man smiled.
"Stop currying favor with me." The maiden swept a glance at him, causing the young man to smile weakly. "I'd like to do so, sadly I don't have such an opportunity. I would only have a chance to act so domineeringly for the sake of a beauty then if there truly is someone who dares to stare at little princess in disdain."
A strange look appeared on the maiden's face. Everytime she came out, her father would send some people out with her to protect her. It was very rare for others to view her with disdain and contempt.
"Didn't you say that his world heart was extraordinary? He might be the same as you and have manifested a transcendent world heart. Just so coincidentally, he has already offended the Dragon Pool Manor. If he doesn't have any background and only came here to attend the Convention of the Myriad Realms, why don't we try to recruit him?" The maiden calmly spoke.
"Princess truly loves talents. It's just that little princess is still so young, why are you already so worried about things like this? You should just enjoy yourself and leave such troublesome matters to the elders to handle." The young man speechlessly spoke.
"You don't understand." A look of deep contemplation appeared in the beautiful eyes of the maiden. Earlier after the news about the reappearance of the ancient battlefield of ancient Azure Mystic, rumors were rife but some of these rumors had great implications. She once heard her elders discussing that in the near future, it was very possible that a huge commotion would shake the entire Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.
"Right, I don't understand." The young man bitterly smiled and shook his head, staring at the maiden with a tender look along with unmasked admiration in his eyes.
"You don't need to understand as well. Your talent lies in cultivation, you should just focus on that." The maiden smiled brightly. She stared at the young man, "Let's go to the Ten Miles Inn for a look."
After that, the group of them left the Heaven Immortal Tower and headed in the direction of the Ten Miles Inn.
A serving girl of the Heaven Immortal Tower was forcibly brought away. Although this matter wasn't really that big, it wasn't that minor as well. This was equivalent to smacking the Heaven Immortal Tower's face and there would surely be some troubles in the future. Not only for this group, several others made their way towards the Ten Miles Inn as well.
At this moment, the Ten Miles Inn suddenly became extremely bustling. Naturally before this, the atmosphere of the courtyard outside the inn was already considered very lively. A manor could be seen near it and this manor was the residence of a world overlord where many people would often come by to pay a visit. They were all willing to wait in the courtyard for long periods of time even though the manor's master might not have any intentions to meet with them. What was even more terrifying was that of all these people who were waiting, they were all world overlords with no exceptions.
"What's going on?" Why is there suddenly so many people in the inn's surroundings?" Among the crowd, a world overlord suddenly frowned as he asked.
"Could it be that the news of Senior Absolute Beginning Overlord's residence being here was leaked?" Someone murmured. The people in the surroundings all nodded their heads respectively. This should be the only possibility. If that was the case, given Senior Absolute Beginning's temperament, he most probably wouldn't meet with them even more!
