Chapter 1069: Nobody knows
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
At the God Hand Mountain Manor, a terrifying aura swept across the heavens and earth. A figure soared up into the air, radiating boundless waves of anger. At this instant, it felt as though apocalypse has arrived.
“MY SON!” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor roared in anger. His robes fluttered in the wind as a supreme immortal might bore down on everything in this space. After which, he stepped out, moving towards the Ancient Mountain.
“BOOM!” In the direction of the God Hand Mountain Manor, a burst of violet light flooded the area. The Violet Emperor stood there and was similarly radiating waves of anger that swept over everything in the heavens and earth, exuding a stifling pressure.
Everyone at the God Hand Mountain Manor was stunned into shock as they stared at the Violet Emperor and the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor rushing towards the ancient mountain. What happened exactly? Why were these two immortal emperors so angered?
Earlier the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor roared for his son. Could it be that Dongsheng Ting encountered a misfortune? This possibility was very great but why was the Violet Emperor so angered as well?
They wanted to know what happened in the ancient mountain exactly but sadly, they can only depend on speculation. They watched on as the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor tried to barge into the ancient mountain. A thunderous boom blasted out as the entire space trembled. He failed again and again, being bounced back by the resistant force from the ancient mountain. This scene made everyone sigh in admiration at how strong Ancient Emperor Yi was. In Emperor Yi’s era, how strong and terrifying was he?
“Who knows the identity of the young man in the bronze mask? Which clan is he from? For those with information, I will reward you heavily.” The voice of the Violet Emperor was cold to the extreme. His gaze turned to everyone as he asked. The crowd’s expression froze a little as they recalled who the Violet Emperor was talking about. That person had a bronze mask obscuring his features and had been exceedingly mysterious and low profile. He entered the ancient mountain with a black hound as his companion but no one here knew of his identity at all.
“I will heavily reward anyone who has the info as well.” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor finally returned, an intense killing intent radiated out from him as he stared at everyone. His eyes had even turned red, he personally watched as his son Dongsheng Ting screamed for help. How miserable was his son then? Crippled, lying helplessly on the ground while brutally being murdered before his eyes. He could see the despair in Dongsheng Ting’s eyes, as well as the pleading look that spoke of a cry for help.
But it was useless. He, who was a great immortal emperor in the immortal realms actually had no way to save his son. Despite giving Dongsheng Ting an extremely powerful treasure and many guards to guarantee his safety, Dongsheng Ting still died in the end. The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor didn’t even think of this scenario in his dreams. Right now, he didn’t even know who was the one who killed his son.
Everyone was speechless, nobody knew who the masked young man was or where he originated from.
An expression of interest appeared on the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord’s face. Seems like Dongsheng Ting was dead and the person who killed him was none other than the mysterious young man whose features were obscured by the bronze mask.
At this moment, the eyes of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor suddenly turned over to the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord as he coldly asked, “That masked young man was too mysterious. Is he someone from your Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect?”
An expression of ridicule appeared on the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord’s face. “Eastern Sage, why do you like to vent your anger on innocent parties? In fact, I truly hope that that person was someone from my sect. Given how heavily Dongsheng Ting was protected, that masked young man must definitely be someone extraordinary seeing that he was able to kill your son. In addition, you also gave your son such a supreme immortal treasure.”
The expression of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor turned cold. The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord was right. Even with so many measures of protection for Dongsheng Ting, how could this have happened? What happened in the ancient mountain exactly? The Violet Emperor had no idea too. Their immortal sense was disintegrated by the power of the divine essence but before their projections were extinguished, they noticed that that entire space there was sealed. Who was it that had such a powerful spatial sealing treasure? He had no idea at all.
“My son, I will definitely take revenge for you.” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor clenched his fist tightly, his killing intent was terrifying to the extreme. He glanced at Emperor Yu as his gaze was filled with ill intent. However, Emperor Yu seemed not to have noticed as he continued drinking and was laughing and smiling to the crowd. He had already reminded everyone that once they entered the ancient mountain, there would be danger. Since those who had entered chose this for themselves, could it be that their elders wanted to vent their anger onto him when their juniors died within?
However, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor just lost a son. He must be feeling extremely frustrated.
“That bunch of trash.” The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor thought of the protectors he sent in with Dongsheng Ting. What a useless bunch, all of them deserved to die.
In the ancient mountain, those experts from the factions of the Violet Emperor and Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor completely had no idea that even the immortal emperors wanted to kill them personally now. They failed completely in their duty to protect their young masters, so what could they expect? But it’s only normal for the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor to vent his anger on them. There were too many of such incidents in the immortal realms and if they knew Dongsheng Ting had already died, they most probably would be so afraid that they wouldn’t dare to step out of the ancient mountain.
At this moment, Qin Wentian and Nanfeng Yunxi had already left the area where Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu died. He didn’t need to worry about anything there any longer. At this moment, Nanfeng Yunxi’s beautiful eyes landed on the handsome face of Qin Wentian. She then asked, “Are you acquainted with that expert?”
“What do you think?” Qin Wentian smiled at Nanfeng Yunxi. He knew that he naturally wouldn’t be able to hide the truth of this matter completely from her.
“You seemed to be fleeing right from the start but most probably, you were waiting for that mysterious masked man to catch up. That person has terrifying sealing abilities and fearsome treasures. Is he your friend? Where is he from?” Nanfeng Yunxi felt extremely curious about this.
“Yunxi, it’s enough that you know about this matter.” Qin Wentian smiled at Nanfeng Yunxi and didn’t say anything more. Nanfeng Yunxi smiled and nodded, “Anyway right now, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor doesn’t even know how Dongsheng Ting died. You did so intentionally, right?”
“What do you think?” Qin Wentian exchanged a mutual glance with Nanfeng Yunxi, everything was said in that glance without words exchanged. Nanfeng Yunxi also understood that she must not reveal anything that happened here today to anyone else. After all, she also played a part in Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu’s deaths.
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed with coldness when he thought of Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu. He did so because he wanted to make sure that the immortal emperors wouldn’t know how their descendants died exactly. He didn’t directly kill Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu because he knew that although both the emperors hated him now, they still didn’t hate him enough to the extent where they would personally act to kill a junior.
The Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor wouldn’t do so because there was a deterrence factor of the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord. If he did so, the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord would surely repay his actions in kind and wipe out the immortal-foundation experts and immortal kings of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect personally. Secondly, it was because of face and his status as an immortal emperor.
The Violet Emperor wouldn’t personally act because there was no excuse for him to do so. After all, Qin Wentian only defeated Zi Daoyang in the City of Ancient Emperors, Mo Xie was the true killer. It was fine if the Violet Emperor sent his subordinates to capture Qin Wentian, but if the Violet Emperor, a great immortal emperor personally acted to kill a junior to vent his anger, what would the other people of the immortal realms see him as?
Hence as he was now, both the immortal emperors did not have sufficient reason to kill him personally.
But if they personally saw Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu being killed by Qin Wentian, they would have the reason to act. Even for immortal emperors, it was possible that they ignored all face and their statuses to kill Qin Wentian. If that happens, he would be in an extremely dangerous situation. Naturally, Qin Wentian wouldn’t choose to allow the situation to develop into such a state.
This was the actual reason why Qin Wentian got Di Tian to come here. When Dongsheng Ting was planning to kill him, he was planning to kill Dongsheng Ting as well. After this matter, Di Tian could vanish forever, the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor and the Violet Emperor wouldn’t be able to find any trace of him. Nobody would know that he was Di Tian and Di Tian was him.
“Holy Successor.” A voice drifted over as the two of them continued their way. It was none other than the guard of Nanfeng Yunxi earlier. Seeing that Nanfeng Yunxi and Qin Wentian were safe, the guard immediately rushed over.
“None of the others came by?” Nanfeng Yunxi asked.
“They should still be locked down in combat.” One of them replied. After all, both sides were immortals. The battle wouldn’t be concluded so fast.
“Let us go back to take a look.” Nanfeng Yunxi spoke. After which, the three of them mounted her puppet phoenix and flew through the air and as expected not long after, they ran into the groups of people still fighting against each other.
“Are you okay?” That disciple from the Heavenly Talisman Realm clad in stone armor asked as he saw Qin Wentian returning.
“Never felt better in my life.” Qin Wentian shrugged and smiled.
“Where are Dongsheng Ting and that nephew of the Violet Emperor? Have you thrown them off your scent?” Someone in the surroundings asked.
“That treasure Dongsheng Ting was using was simply too powerful. Also, he had many other immortal weapons on him. Yunxi and I were being hunted down step-by-step and were in an extremely miserable state. Luckily, that mysterious masked expert is also an extraordinary individual who is proficient in the art of sealing, and was able to suppress Dongsheng Ting. That person must have wanted to seize the treasures on Dongsheng Ting, he sealed the entire space there and allowed us to leave. Most probably, it isn’t likely for Dongsheng Ting to have survived.” Qin Wentian spoke with no intentions of lowering his voice. It was like he wanted the subordinates of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and Violet Emperor to hear what happened.
And as expected, their faces all changed. An expert from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect coldly spoke, “That spinning wheel is a special treasure given to Young Master Ting by his Majesty. How could it be suppressed so easily? What nonsense are you talking about.”
Qin Wentian cast a mocking gaze at that person. “I’m not even talking to you, why are you speaking out of turn? As for Dongsheng Ting, believe what you will. Since he has unparalleled talent and is invincible with that treasure, why don’t you all just wait quietly for him to return?”
That person stared at the mocking smile in Qin Wentian’s eyes as his countenance drastically changed. After which he spoke to his sect members, “Let’s go.”
As he spoke, he and his sect members launched an attack, borrowing the opportunity to lengthen the distance between them and Qin Wentian’s comrades. After which, they all retreated in one direction before completely departing this area. Qin Wentian has already returned, yet there are no signs of Dongsheng Ting and Zi Yunwu. This matter felt extremely bizarre.
“Senior brother.” From afar, the silhouette of Jun Mengchen and Purgatory flew over along with the other experts from the Southern Phoenix Clan.
“Why did those people stop fighting?”
“Dongsheng Ting ran into trouble.” Qin Wentian laughed. That disciple from the Heavenly Talisman Realm who asked Qin Wentian if he could handle Dongsheng Ting earlier, cast a deep glance at Qin Wentian now but he didn’t say anything.
“Let us continue on our journey. Most probably, many people have already entered the extreme depths of this ancient mountain. Let us not waste any more time.” Someone spoke. Qin Wentian turned and gaze at the surroundings, he realized that those from the Jiang Clan were no longer here. Evidently, they went off searching for the location of the divine essence. That was their purpose of coming into the ancient mountain.
“Mhm, this ancient mountain seems boundlessly deep and is simply unfathomable. Everyone, it’s better to act more cautiously.” Qin Wentian spoke. Before this, he lured Dongsheng Ting through many places but he still felt that he had merely explored a corner of this ancient mountain. It wasn’t going to be so easy to be able to obtain the complete inheritance left behind by Ancient Emperor Yi!
