The eyes of the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereign similarly gleamed with sharpness as she stared at Qin Wentian. This was the person who broke the record of the grass hut and rejected her when she tried to recruit him. Now, she was here to seize the treasure for her disciple Lou Bingyu, compelling the Human Emperor but the envoys from the Immortal Martial Realm actually showed up right at this moment to pass the Immortal Martial Medallion to this young man?
Qin Wentian held the Immortal Martial Medallion in his hands and inclined his head, staring at the white-robed envoys who were standing in the air.
"Every ten years, the Immortal Martial Realm shall open. We hope for your presence. Chances, opportunities, destiny awaits you within. Do not miss this." One of the envoy lightly nodded his head to Qin Wentian, after which their silhouettes flickered as they left directly, ignoring everyone else. Swiftly after, they vanished completely, becoming streaks of light that shot through the horizon.
Below, the Crown Prince of the War Country, the Princess of the Spirit Luan Country and also Li Hanyou all had strange gleams in their eyes. Even the disciples of the Battle Sword Sect were staring at Qin Wentian in envy. This fellow was actually regarded so highly by the Immortal Martial Realm envoys that they personally came by to deliver a Immortal Martial Realm medallion to invite him.
"Junior Brother Qin, although this medallion serves no other purposes, it can at the very least show you how much the envoys values you. This was why they personally delivered the medallion to you, urging you not to miss the opening for the Immortal Martial Realm this time around. Since time immemorial, the total number of people obtaining the Immortal Martial Medallion was only eighty-one. I didn’t receive one, neither did the Crown Prince of the War Country nor Princess Tianluan. You mustn’t miss the opening of the Immortal Martial Realm for this batch."
Duan Han who was at the side transmitted his voice to Qin Wentian, "Usually for those who were highly regarded by the Immortal Martial Realm envoys, they would usually have outstanding performance in the Immortal Martial Realm, able to leave their names behind on the ranking monument."
Qin Wentian silently nodded his head. Although he was slightly bewildered in his heart, he can always ask about it later. Right now, he inclined his head and stared in the air, his foster father, the Human Emperor was a hero of the generations. Being compelled to hand over the treasure, it was truly a solemn and stirring sight.
With the Immortal Martial Medallion in his hands, Qin Wentian turned his gaze onto the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness. Just as well, the Sword Sovereigness was looking at him as well.
"Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness, you took advantage of the Human Emperor’s precarious situation, forcing him to dig into his flesh for the treasure just to gift to your disciple. However, you better remember this, guard the treasure well." Qin Wentian slowly spoke as he stared into the air. The countenance of the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness flashed with sharpness as she icily replied, "Are you threatening me?"
"As one of the Sword Sovereigns of the Battle Sword Sect, nobody can restrict you no matter what you wished to do. However, your actions blackened the name of the Battle Sword Sect, if you fought openly and above-board, we would have nothing to say. But your actions today…even I as a junior, despise you."
Qin Wentian emotionlessly spoke, his words causing the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness to laugh coldly, "Even if I don’t snatch the treasure today, Ye Qingyun wouldn’t be able to retain it. Not only that, the matters regarding this seat, when has it ever became your turn to interfere in it? Today I won’t bully you, but if you step into the Immortal Martial Realm, this seat’s personal disciple will naturally discipline you on my behalf.
After the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness spoke, she flicked her sleeves and flew away with her people, "Ye Qingyun, farewell."
"Old witch, I, Ye will remember this matter today. You better cultivate well." The Human Emperor spoke as he stared at the departing silhouette of the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness. After which he turned his gaze onto those below as he continued, "Please leave, and forgive I, Ye for not sending all of you off.
After the Sword Sovereigness left, Ye Qingyun directly issued an expulsion order. These people were all major powers from the Southern Domain of the Royal Sacred Region and thought that the Human Emperor would surely fall to the Qi King today. Their original plan was to cause the Ye Country to stumble, leading to a total collapse where they would be unable to recover from yet who would have thought the ending would so far from their predictions? Since the Human Emperor is still alive, the remaining kings and dukes are all willing to follow his orders. Now that the Ye Country is united once more, if they wanted to destroy Ye, they might have to pay a terrible price. Hence, they were naturally unwilling to do so.
"Since this is the case, we shall bid our farewell." Everyone stood up, smiling at Ye Qingyun as though they were good friends from the start.
Ye Qingyun merely stared at them calmly. A moment later, all of their silhouettes flickered as they disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving the Ye Country.
After everyone left, Ye Qingyun finally couldn’t control his body any longer. He gave a groan of misery before spitting out fresh blood, his countenance as white as a sheet of paper.
Everyone was greatly alarmed, evidently the injuries of the Human Emperor were far more terrible that what they originally thought. The battle today was simply too fierce, even the Head-Supremacy of the Violet Thunder Sect had appeared, surrounding the Human Emperor with the other members from the Violet Thunder Sect. However, the end result was that almost all their experts died and in the end they could only return in low spirits after failing to achieve their objectives. After that, the Human Emperor was forced to worsen his injuries by digging into his own flesh to take the treasure out for the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness.
If he wasn’t already so badly injured in the first place after the battle, with his character he would surely engage the Plum Mountain Sword Sovereigness in a duel. However, he understood that he was bound to lose if he was not at full strength and as the Human Emperor of Ye, he had to take the entire country into his considerations. If he fell here, Ye would instantly fall into a calamity and would most likely be destroyed.
If he was alive, he is the pillar supporting Ye. Those ancient countries and supreme clans don’t even need to dream about annexing Ye despite his injuries.
Qin Wentian and Mo Qingcheng instantly dashed over to the Human Emperor as Mo Qingcheng retrieved a bottle of medicinal pills and passed it to him.
The Human Emperor smiled and directly accepted. He broke the bottle and consumed the pills within, not bothering to stand on ceremony with Mo Qingcheng. Since Qin Wentian was his foster son and Mo Qingcheng would be his wife sooner or later, she could also be considered his daughter.
After consuming the medicinal pill, a surge of medical energy circulated around the Human Emperor’s body, aiding his injuries to recover. He directly closed his eyes and meditated. After a period of time, astral light gushed from him as he recovered somewhat before he opened his eyes once more with spirit shining in them once again.
The Human Emperor turned, facing the various dukes and kings as well as Shi Xuan as his men, "Transmit my orders, for the dukes and kings who rebelled today, seal their residence and show no mercy to whoever is found guilty of having the slightest part in today’s rebellion. For those who are innocent as well as the women and children, give them a path of survival and let them leave Ye unharmed."
"Human Emperor, would it be better to annihilate them all so as to sever all roots of trouble?" An old man spoke, his eyes flashing with a glint of sharpness.
"No need. From ancient times till now, the winner has always been the king while the losers are all vilified. I, Ye Qingyun, stepped on mountains of corpses before climbing up to my current position, how would I fear revenge by their descendants? If in the future any of their descendants can best me in a fight and snatch the throne away, I would have nothing to say. I only hope that when people of Ye engaged in internal strife to seize the throne, the winner wouldn’t go all out and exterminate everyone related to the loser, not sparing even the innocents."
The Human Emperor calmly spoke, although he could be ruthless and decisive, he wasn’t willing to kill the innocent children. Not only that, who dared said that there wasn’t someone who spared him, Ye Qingyun, in the past which enabled him to survive till today?
"We hear and obey." Shi Xuan and his men bowed before rushing off to carry out the Human Emperor’s order.
The Human Emperor stared at the few princes present, "All of you have witnessed what happened today, I’m sure this has taught you something. Although your talents are average, but as long as your heart is determined, it doesn’t matter even if you cultivate slower than others."
The various princes nodded their heads, the battle today truly impacted their thinking. They were all very clear that if the Human Emperor were to fall, the entire Ye country would collapse. They and their families would become refugees, hiding like rats to avoid being slaughtered. They could still be the princes only because the Human Emperor was alive, affording them protection. But if the Human Emperor falls, who would protect them?"
"In the Royal Sacred Region, there are many ancient countries, reclusive sects and powerful clans. However, the foundation of such a power is tough to build up and easy to collapse. Our Ye Country has a history of over ten thousand years but it would only take a single day to crumble if the Emperor of a generation is weaker compared to others."
The Human Emperor murmured, feeling waves of sadness in his heart. The Human Emperor of this ancient country has no one capable enough to be his successor.
Qin Wentian also lamented in his heart. How could people not covet for the power of an ancient country that lasted over ten thousand years? If the Human Emperor wasn’t alive, Ye would have fallen instantly. This was the importance of the strength of people at the top-tier echelons of various powers.
The nine great sects were known as the nine great sects because they had several people who were exceedingly strong at their upper-echelons. An example was the nine Sword Sovereigns of the Battle Sword Sect and the Seven Supremacies of the Violet Thunder Sect. If the Ye Country has two Human Emperors or more, how could the War Country and Spirit Luan Country even dared to step into Ye’s borders?
"Wentian, regarding the battle today, it's still your battle that make people slap the table and call out in praise. A fifth-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereign slaying a genius from the Violet Thunder Sect who was at the seventh-level of Heavenly Dipper? And adding that defeat to the fact that so many of them died when fighting against me, it would be hard for the Violet Thunder Sect’s reputation to remain untarnished. Also, that expression on that old witch’s face was simply classic when the envoys came by, delivering the medallion to you instead of her personal disciple Li Hanyou."
The instant the Human Emperor thought back to that moment, he burst out into laughter.
"Foster Father, why would there be envoys personally delivering medallions to people?" Qin Wentian curiously inquired.
"The Immortal Martial Realm is an extremely mysterious place. Their envoys are said to be omniscient. Your feat of comprehending fourteen sword strikes breaking the record of the grass hut at the Battle Sword Sect and your act of slaying Ye Kongfan in such a domineering fashion is probably already known to them. How many in the Royal Sacred Region could accomplish what you did? What’s so strange about the envoys personally delivering the medallion over? You don’t need to think too much on this, what you need to do is to prepare well for the journey to the Immortal Martial Realm. The realm opens only once every ten years, and is one of the greatest event in the Royal Sacred Region" The Human Emperor replied.
"Can anyone enter the Immortal Martial Realm?" Qin Wentian asked again.
"Anyone under Celestial Phenomenon is qualified to enter. However, that place is also known as the graveyard of geniuses, although there’s good fortune within, unless you are truly a genius, you would end up dying nine out of ten times. Hence those who eventually chose to enter are all elites of their generations and their cultivation bases would at the very least be at the third level of Heavenly Dipper. After all, external divine weapons are not allowed in there, and if your cultivation base is too low, you would die there very easily."
"Since that’s the case, wouldn’t those at the peak of Heavenly Dipper enjoy an absolute advantage?" Qin Wentian asked in a low voice. Although his cultivation base was only at the fifth level of Heavenly Dipper, he could even slay seventh-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns. But he knew it would probably be impossible for him to prevail if the opponent he’s facing is at the peak of Heavenly Dipper instead.
"You are mistaken, I’ve already said that the Immortal Martial Realm is an exceedingly mysterious place. Many times, they regard talent more importantly compared to one’s cultivation base. You would understand when you enter. Those names near the top on the ranking monument are all not those with the highest cultivation but rather, the ones with the strongest talent." The Human Emperor explained.
Duan Han walked up, "Junior Brother Qin, this time around, us from the Battle Sword Sect are planning to enter as well. In that case, we won’t return to the sect but head off directly to the Immortal Martial Realm instead. That place would surely be the gathering of geniuses from our generation, it would be a shame to miss it."
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed with sharpness. Given the vastness of the Royal Sacred Region and the number of ancient countries, reclusive sects and powerful clans, it was unknown how many talented geniuses were there. The opening of the Immortal Martial Realm was one of the grandest events in the Royal Sacred Region, how could he miss something like that? He definitely must take this chance to witness for himself how powerful exactly are the top geniuses in the Royal Sacred Region!
