1890 Meeting in Time
Qin Dangtian stared at Qu Mo. Qu Mo was incomparably handsome and elegant. No wonder his daughter could become the number one beauty of the Heaven Region. Both father and daughter looked alike, causing him to feel a sense of familiarity.
"Nephew Dangtian pays my respects to uncle." Qin Dangtian clasped his hands. "If Nichang knows that uncle is still alive and well, she would surely be very happy."
"Nichang." Qu Mo's eyes flashed. His daughter, how was she now?
"You know my daughter?" Qu Mo stared at Qin Dangtian.
"Brother Qu." Qin Zheng stepped forward and spoke to Qu Mo. "I've long heard of Brother Qu's name. It's a pity that we didn't have a chance to be acquainted. I didn't expect to be able to meet with Brother Qu here. Most probably, this meeting was arranged by fate. Before I entered the Heaven Vault, I've already paid a visit to Uncle Qu to discuss about the marriage between my son Qin Dangtian and your daughter Nichang."
"Marriage?" Qu Mo's body trembled. His daughter was already going to get married?
"Who are you?" Qu Mo asked.
"The current Qin Clan Leader, Qin Zheng. This is my wife and my son Qin Dangtian." Qin Zheng spoke.
Qu Mu turned his gaze onto Qin Dangtian. He wasn't unfamiliar with the Qin Clan, on the contrary, he was extremely familiar with them. He was famous much earlier, during the time of Qin Zheng's youth, this was why Qin Zheng hasn't interacted with him before. However, Qu Mo knows Qin Zheng's father, Qin Ding, as well as Qin Tiangang. Qu Mo was also acquainted with Qin Yuanfeng.
"Earlier, you said that Qin Yuanfeng is the traitor of the Qin Clan?" Qu Mo stared at Qin Dangtian as he asked.
"Uncle Qu, Qin Yuanfeng once betrayed the Qin Clan and is undoubtedly a traitor. Many years ago, he was hunted down by the Qin Clan and this brat is none other than the vile spawn Qin Yuanfeng left behind, Qin Wentian." Qin Dangtian pointed to Qin Wentian as he continued, "Because he fled to here, that is the reason why we pursued him until here. We didn't expect to be able to meet Uncle Qu here. This must be an arrangement of fate."
"From what I know, Yuanfeng is a magnanimous and heroic individual, how would he betray the Qin Clan?" Qu Mu felt extremely doubtful. He glanced at Qin Wentian after that. He naturally knew that different people had different opinions, and he wouldn't believe someone fully.
"Wentian pays my respects to Uncle Qu." Qin Wentian was also very polite. At this moment, he naturally knew who this handsome man before him was. This man was acquainted with his father and their relationship seemed to be not bad.
"People of the Qin Clan are all incomparably shameless. It's true that my father rebelled against the Qin Clan and left it but it is only because the Qin Clan let my father down first. My father has always stood tall and faced the heavens proudly all his life. He initially wanted to live a reclusive life with my mother but this despicable person Qin Zheng sought him out and acted against him. After Qin Zheng lost, he wasn't convinced and used all methods at his disposal to force my father to act. Ultimately, in a fit of rage, my father killed his way into the Qin Clan and everything he had was seized from him, including his flesh, rune bone, blood and possessions." Qin Wentian coldly spoke. Qu Mo's gaze froze as a look of sorrow flickered in his eyes. Yuanfeng actually died?
"What a load of nonsense. You are the son of a traitor from the Qin Clan and will naturally speak for him. Uncle Qu, please don't believe him." Qin Dangtian spoke in cold arrogance. After speaking, he stepped out and walked towards Qin Wentian. "Even if you flee to the ends of the world, I will still pursue and capture you back to the Qin Clan."
"Yuanfeng has already also died? Ultimately, did he not escape his destiny?" Qu Mo mumbled in a low voice, his tone was filled with sorrow.
"Also?" The experts here glanced at Qu Mo. When they heard this word, a strange look appeared on their faces. Qin Zheng and Qin Dangtian looked closely at Qu Mo before Qin Zheng spoke, "Brother Qu, why is there a need for you to feel sorrow for a traitor? What sort of place is this Gods Extinction Path? Why doesn't Brother Qu come with us and we can join forces to barge our way out?"
"Barge our way out?" Qu Mo turned his gaze onto Qin Zheng. "I pray for your good luck. I really hope you guys will be able to leave this place. As for me, there's no more opportunities left."
"Uncle, what do you mean?" Qin Dangtian asked. However when he spoke, his tone was calm, there weren't much emotions in it. Even though this man before him was Nichang's father, the person he liked was Goddess Nichang. Initially, everything was fine. But this man actually was acquainted with Qin Yuanfeng and had a good relationship with that traitor.
"In this place, the people you meet might exist in a different spacetime. Do you understand what I mean? They may be from a certain time back in the past. I'm a very good example." Qu Mo slowly spoke. "Now, for me, it is my present, but for you guys, you see me in the past. In my future, I've already died in the Gods Extinction Path."
"A spacetime from the past…?" The hearts of everyone trembled. This place was actually a zone of intermingled timelines? Qu Mo had actually truly died and no longer existed in the real present. He only existed at a space and time in the past. As for them, the corridor they chose led them to here.
This was simply unimaginable. The hearts of every expert present pounded wildly.
"Brother Qu, how did you die?" Qin Zheng asked again. His gaze blazed with a fiery heat. It wasn't because he was sad for Qu Mo, he just wanted to know what Qu Mo experienced before he died. Only knowing the answer would enable him to probe the secrets of the Gods Extinction Path further.
Qu Mu calmly glanced at Qin Zheng and Qin Dangtian. He suddenly felt somewhat uneasy. He didn't like this father and son pair at all. In fact, he felt an intense dislike for them.
"Since you addressed me as Brother Qu, can you promise me to spare him? After all, Yuanfeng is a good friend of mine. Now, after all of you entered this place, your lives are already not up to your control. Why is there a need to fight each other?" Qu Mu sighed, as he spoke sincerely.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Brother Qu, this Qin Wentian is the son of the traitor. Our Qin Clan has to capture him for sure. I hope Brother Qu can understand this." Qin Zheng politely rejected.
"Uncle, I will definitely walk out of this place alive. You don't need to worry about Nichang. I will take good care of her on your behalf. In the future, she is destined to be above everything, ruling the masses beside me." Qin Dangtian spoke with arrogance. Qu Mu glanced at the two of them. This father and son pair was truly alike. As expected of them being father and son.
"If you can leave here alive, help me tell my father and Nichang that I, Qu Mo, don't agree to this marriage." Qu Mu transmitted his voice to Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian froze before nodding his head. If he could leave this place alive, he would pass on the message. From his perspective, he also doesn't wish for Goddess Nichang to be married to Qin Dangtian.
Upon seeing Qin Wentian nodding, Qu Mo placed the flute in his hands towards his lips. He then played a melody. The sound of the flute was filled with a hint of sorrow, as well as longing.
Qin Zheng and Qin Dangtian stared at Qu Mu. Seeing that he was playing his flute and ignoring them, Qin Dangtian turned his gaze back to Qin Wentian. He then took a step forward as he spoke, "Do you still want to flee?"
As he spoke, the Qin Clan's experts stepped out, surrounding Qin Wentian from all directions. Luoshen Chuan stepped out and arrived beside Qin Wentian. He didn't expect that even when Qin Wentian fled into the Gods Extinction Path, there was still no way to avoid the Qin Clan.
The Qin Clan was actually willing to pay any price to catch him.
"Grandfather, you don't need to care about me." Qin Wentian sighed. Luoshen Chuan stared at him, his expression was incomparably calm as he spoke, "You are my grandson."
Qin Wentian's heart trembled as currents of warmth flowed in his heart. This was his maternal grandfather, the father of his mother.
"Since this is the case, grandfather let us fight together." Qin Wentian laughed loudly. His aura erupted forth. Qin Zheng and Qin Dangtian both coldly laughed. Struggling at death's door? Was there any meaning to it?
Just as their auras gushed out, the flute melody changed, transforming into waves of power from the great dao. The sound waves spread out in all directions and at this moment, the surroundings here started to twist. The time corridor was changing as well. The flute melody seemed to have created a tunnel that would lead to a different point in space and time.
"This…" All the experts stared at Qu Mo. The distance between them and him seemed to be increasing, yet also nearing. It was very chaotic and confusing. Qu Mo merely sat there calmly, playing on his flute. It was like the matters of the world wouldn't be able to disturb his heart.
"What is he doing?" Someone asked, but nobody knew. However, they had a feeling of travelling through time.
No one understood what Qu Mo wanted to do. Qu Mo continued playing his flute as everyone was being transported through different spacetime. They met many different people, everyone they saw had existed in Heaven Vault once in the past. No one knew if those people they saw were alive but trapped, or had already died.
"He wants to send us to a different point in time." An expert spoke, understanding Qu Mo's intents. However, they didn't know which spacetime Qu Mo wanted to send them to exactly.
Finally, when a certain figure appeared in this particular spacetime, Qu Mo's flute melody suddenly ceased. The time and space here no longer twisted. Qu Mo's figure moved further and further before gradually vanishing from the vision of everyone. Another figure had replaced him. That figure stood there, giving off an aura as mighty as a majestic ocean, like an evergreen tree that stood tall and straight. His headful of black hair fluttered in the wind. The lines on his face were also incomparably clear. When at the instant Qin Wentian laid his eyes on this man, his heart couldn't help but tremble.
Not only him, when Qin Zheng and Luoshen Chuan saw this man, their gazes also froze as they looked at the man in disbelief.
The eyes of this man were terrifying to the extreme, as though they contained the myriad of constellations within. The gaze of this man turned to Qin Wentian. It was like despite everyone being here, he only had eyes for Qin Wentian alone.
Their gazes matched, as though crossing through a cycle of samsara. They were seperated by boundless distance but the flute melody of Qu Mu matched their points in space and time together, allowing this man to encounter Qin Wentian here at this moment.
Qin Dangtian stared at the imposing man in front of him as he frowned. He also seemed to have sensed something. He turned to his father only to see Qin Zheng staring at this man in shock, yet that man didn't even glanced at Qin Zheng.
"My name is Qin Wentian, the son of Qin Yuanfeng." At this moment, Qin Wentian suddenly spoke, revealing his name.
That figure stared at him. After that, that figure slowly spoke, " My name is Qin Tiangang!"
