On top of a desolate mountain, the white robes of the young man were stained with blood. The depth of his eyes shone with a coldness that made the temperature around the surroundings drastically plunge.
The chosen of the Xuan King City, they can just wait for him to return.
His silhouette flickered as he hugged Little Rascal, departing from this area.
Evidently, this area wasn’t suitable for them to stay in any longer. Especially considering that Purgatory had entered his bloodstream, it could recover and cultivate while in there.
Qin Wentian also didn’t understand why his primordial demon blood had abruptly manifested a new ability. Maybe, this ability had awakened after he absorbed the blood of an immortal from the blood pool within the hidden realm. The Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay had consumed the majority of the blood available within the pool while the remaining excess was absorbed by him. This was also the reason why his Mandate of Demons could reach the Transformation Boundary of the second level insight so quickly.
Lowering his head to stare at the injured Little Rascal in his arms, he only saw the snowy puppy looking up at him and speaking in a baby-voice, “Lit…tle… Ras…cal…!”
“Yup, Little Rascal.” Upon hearing this voice, the dark clouds in Qin Wentian’s heart all seemed to disperse. A gentle smile appeared on his face as he rubbed Little Rascal’s head.
“Don't…like…!’ Little Rascal shook its head in an adorable manner, using human speech to express its discontent for the name Qin Wentian had chosen for it.
“Hahaha, I've already called you that for so long that I've gotten used to it.” Qin Wentian gently tapped Little Rascal on its head causing the little puppy to frown. Its bright eyes flashed with a touch of grievance. After becoming able to speak, Little Rascal continued adopting more and more human characteristics.
The two of them flew through the air, leaving this area of desolation while venturing even deeper into the depths of the mountain range of the Heavenly Mountain.
Meanwhile in Xuan King City, several rumors were being circulated around. According to the rumors, during the Treasure Seizing Assembly, there was a young man by the surname of Qin. This young man had seized Shang Yue’s spatial brush, even went so far as to humiliate Yin Cheng and Jin Zhang. That young man was the epitome of arrogance. Furthermore, he had even bested Grandmaster Qiu, killing him via divine inscriptions.
Additionally, there were rumors that a hidden realm appeared. It was said that the major powers had all sent their geniuses over there and discovered that it was the burial ground of a legendary character. A Celestial Constellation Tree was discovered which resulted in a fierce battle among the geniuses. After that, the young man surnamed Qin fought against all the experts, killing more than half of them. After snatching over half of the constellation fruits, he faced the combined attacks from the demon-level geniuses, before safely escaping.
And what's even more shocking was that this young man was said to only have a cultivation base at the third level of Heavenly Dipper.
Because of him the Wind Roc Aristocrat Clan brought out their ten-thousand miles tracking mirror, while the Yin Clan brought out their space sealing treasure. Together they managed to track down the young man in white. But in the end, they were forced to retreat with heavy injuries. Even two experts who were at the seventh to ninth level of Heavenly Dipper had fallen. Nobody knew exactly what happened in the battle, but that young man in the white robe had become something like a legend, as though he was an invincible being with three-heads and six-arms.
Currently, the young man in the white robe was in fact, still cultivating within the mountain range of the Heavenly Mountain.
In the depths of the mountain range, a strange scene was currently playing out. Qin Wentian sat atop a mountain peak staring straight ahead. Over there, snow could be seen drifting all about, covering the mountain range ahead, exuding an extremely chilling intent.
The location he was in seemed to be separated into two parts.One part, ahead of him was a world of ice and snow, while the second part, the place he was in had no hint of snow or ice at all.
Qin Wentian sat there cross-legged, both his hands holding on to constellation fruits. One of the fruits was the heart-thumping dark-red fruit while the other was the Earth Mandate Fruit.
He didn’t consume them directly. These Mandate Fruits exuded aura fluctuations based on their respective wills of Mandate. They would be good materials to further advance one’s comprehension of insights by meditating on the aura fluctuations. Although a cultivator could directly consume these fruits, there would be nothing left after they enjoyed a one-time miraculous effect which aided them with improving their Mandates. These constellation fruits would be most effective if one consumed them at the most appropriate moments.
Qin Wentian sat there silently with the fruits in his hands. His heartbeat increased to a frantic speed, yet there was a strong sense of rhythm to the beats. Each beat of his heart caused him to feel that all the cells in his body were moving together in tandem.
As for the Great Earth Mandate Fruits, it could enable him to more clearly sense the pulsing of the Great Earth. In fact, he felt as though his heartbeat was akin to the earth’s pulse, thumping with power.
Qin Wentian soon entered into a state of self-immersion as he focused fully on the pulsing energy. Following the pulsation of the great earth, his perception continued to stretch forth unceasingly.
Gradually, his heartbeat slowed down. Slowing down to the point as though it wanted to thump together with the rhythm of the throbbing pulsation of the great earth.
Such a feeling was as if he was a part of the earth itself, this prompted his mind and heart to fuse together as one with the earth.
As Qin Wentian’s cultivation grew stronger, he was able to comprehend the insights from the Mandate of Great Earth.However, because he didn’t have an earth-type astral soul, it was impossible for him to condense an astral nova of this attribute. Even if he did comprehend it, the strength he would have gained would also be many times weaker in comparison to his own Mandates, despite needing a longer period of time to comprehend it.
After all right now, he was using the Mandate Fruits to enable him to enter into such a wondrous state that allowed him to comprehend insights into Mandates that were different from his Astral Souls.
As a period of time passed, Qin Wentian’s heartbeat became so slow that it had almost stopped.
“Hu…” Exhaling, his eyes opened.Qin Wentian felt totally refreshed after the session, having been in a state of self-immersion and comprehending insights of the Mandate of Great Earth, the sensation of feeling as though he was one with the earth itself was too marvelous.
“It’s about time my Mandate of Force has a breakthrough.” Qin Wentian stood up and walked ahead to the front of a mountain wall in the snowy region. The will from His Mandate of Force coated his fist as he slowly sank it into the mountain wall. A terrifying undulation gushed into the wall from his fist, causing the entire wall to tremble. After which, cracking sounds echoed as line after line akin to a spider-web, dented the surface of the wall.
“Shatter.” Qin Wentian retracted his fist as a rumbling sound thundered in the air. The mountain wall in front of him had instantly shattered into dust.
Qin Wentian had the shadow of a smile on his face, “The Mandate of Force truly shares some similarities with the Mandate of Great Earth. The second level insight which I had comprehended for my Mandate of Force, Void Vibration, isn’t that also a kind of pulsation energy which emits vibrational shockwaves? Right now, my Mandate of Force finally broke through to the Transformation Boundary of the second level insight.”
Right now, of his four Mandates; the Mandate of Force, Mandate of Demons and the Mandate of Swords had already reached the Transformation Boundary of the second level insights. As for his Mandate of Dreams, he had the Great Dream Immortal Art to study and reference from, he could feel that soon enough, his Mandate of Dreams would also be able to break through soon. It wouldn’t be long before all four of his Mandates would be at the Transformation Boundary of the second level insights.
The snow continuously cascaded down, each and every of Qin Wentian’s halberd strikes were filled with the entirety of strength he was able to summon.
When Qin Wentian first started along the path of cultivation, he had learnt the principles behind the Tempered Thousand-Hammer Refinement Technique. Any innate techniques, as long as they were practiced countless times, one would surely be able to comprehend the essence of that technique.
Right now, he knew many innate techniques, yet it was immensely difficult for him to fuse all of their essences into one perfectly. For example, his halberd arts; previously he created some moves regarding halberd attacks that were extremely well suited for himself. But in his current circumstances, the power of those techniques was far from sufficient to deal with experts at the Heavenly Dipper Realm. But what if… he managed to infuse the will of his Mandates completely into it? Wouldn’t the power of his attacks be augmented by over tens or even hundreds of times?
However, how could a complete infusion of power from his Mandates be so easy to achieve? He needed to create new moves of greater attack power. Considering the fact that this was creation, it meant that he had to continuously test out the attacks to see if there would be any chance of success.
The falling snow brought along with it a bone-piercing coldness, yet that young man continued on as though he was incapable of feeling fatigue. With a thin white robe, he struck out strike after strike, seeking nothing but perfection.
One day passed.
Seven days passed.
In the twinkling of an eye, nine days already passed. The young man in white was still deep in a world of his own. He had already forgotten how many halberd strikes did he had struck out. However right now, he could already attack using his halberd while emitting no traces of his presence. His attacks were totally in silence, completely devoid of sound. This was because his attack speed had already reached a state where it broke past the limits of sound - when the sound of the halberd strike echoed out, his attack would have already landed.
The silhouette of the white-robed young man flickered, his eyes staring at the snow mountain ahead. Stepping out, he lashed out with his halberd, the force of his strike was akin to a tyrannical dragon, as his halberd might engulfed the entire mountain.
The halberd had landed, yet no sound could be heard. After which, the snow mountain before him collapsed inch by inch as his force permeated into the interior of the mountain. Terrifying rumbling sounds rang out and only after some time had the entire mountain collapsed totally, transforming into dust.
“Not strong enough yet, the strongest state of my void vibrational shockwaves should be able to fuse with the pulsation of great earth, and instantly destroying this mountain in a single strike.” Qin Wentian frowned, appearing still unsatisfied. After which, he brandished his scarlet demon halberd again and again once more.
Time flowed by, another seven days passed.
On the snowy ground, Little Rascal lazily laid on it, its white fur melding perfectly with the snow.
Behind them, on a snowy peak, a maiden untainted by mortal dust appeared there silently, gazing at the young man in white who was practicing his halberd arts.
A few hours later, the white robed young man stopped once again, but this time, the glimmer of a smile could be seen in his eyes.
“My Mandate of Dreams has finally reached the Transformation Boundary of the second level insight.” Qin Wentian laughed. Right now, all four of his Mandates had reached the Transformation Boundary, if he met with those six chosen once more, Qin Wentian was extremely confident that he could kill them all despite their advantage in numbers.
One must know that a few days ago when he fought against the six chosen, his strongest insurance was his sword as well as the Seven Annihilations Swordplay. Back then, only his Mandate of Sword had reached the Transformation Boundary in his second level insight.
And now, as though he suddenly felt something, Qin Wentian turned his gaze at the silhouette atop that snowy peak. His eyes involuntarily brightened when he saw who it was.
Qin Wentian’s silhouette flickered, appearing at the mountain peak where Qing`er stood. The pair of eyes belonging to that ice-cold silhouette were filled with intelligence as she stared at him. She wasn’t somebody with a lot of words.
“These two constellation fruits are Space Mandate Fruits, they should be of use to you.” Qin Wentian passed the fruits over to her, yet Qing`er merely cast a glance at him but didn’t show any interest in taking the fruits.
“Qing`er, take them.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“Okay.” Qing`er finally replied, stretching her hands out and accepting the Space Mandate Fruits. Her countenance still remained unchanged, it was unknown what she was thinking about.
“I’m leaving first.” Qin Wentian turned as he appeared below the mountain, walking across the land of ice and snow.
Looking at his back view, Qing`er’s countenance had finally changed. Her lips were gently curled up in a sweet smile. This smile was filled with such emotions that it was as though it was fully capable of melting all the ice and snow in this world!
