Chapter 1099: Taishan Immortal King
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The Skymist Immortal Empire was a neighbouring power near the Evergreen Immortal Empire, their territory was boundlessly vast and was an extremely ancient power with an incredible foundation.
Back then, the Evergreen Immortal Empire was experiencing upheaval because the Skymist Immortal Empire interfered with them, causing a division of power, subtly acting from the shadows and influencing the luck and destiny of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. In that war, the strength of the Evergreen Immortal Empire was diminished as countless experts died. Eventually, although the Evergreen Immortal Emperor won the war, he did so at a tragic cost. That war, to the Evergreen Immortal Empire, was a black spot in their history.
After that war, the Skymist Immortal Empire retracted their hand and no longer interfered in the internal matters of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. However right now in the royal capital of the Evergreen Immortal Empire, a regiment of troops and a group of envoys from the Skymist Immortal Empire had arrived.
These people didn’t directly enter the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. But at the instant they entered the capital, huge waves of commotion arose and even the Evergreen Immortal Emperor was startled. There were many kings and marquises that met with the Evergreen Immortal Emperor frequently to discuss this matter.
Everyone understood that the Skymist Immortal Empire came here with ill intentions.
These two were both immortal empires and were bordered next to each other. In the long river of time, there had been countless clashes and conflicts between the two empires. And today, because the Evergreen Immortal Empire gradually weakened from the internal warfare in the past, the Skymist Immortal Empire gradually occupied an advantage. How could the people of the Evergreen Immortal Empire not understand the ambitions of the Skymist Immortal Empire? They wanted to devour them whole, absorbing them into their territory.
Their visit this time around would surely be for some malicious motives.
Also the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire also received news that for the group of envoys that came this time, there were many important characters within, including a few princes of the Skymist Immortal Empire.
Today, the Skymist Immortal Empire’s group sent a letter into the imperial palace, directly into the hands of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.
In the Evergreen Immortal Empire, within the imperial palace, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor sat upon a throne fashioned from a true dragon as he read the letter sent by the Skymist Immortal Empire. His expression was as calm as ever, but a surge of destructive energy flowed from him soon after, destroying the letter.
“Our purpose visiting your esteemed immortal empire is for the agreement made those years ago. We hope the Evergreen Immortal Empire would abide by it.” An ethereal voice abruptly drifted out as a wisp of green smoke gushed out from the destroyed letter. This ethereal voice rang out through the great hall.
Many kings and marquises in the great hall stood up, their expressions ashen. One immortal king then spoke, “That year in the past, it was the traitor who set this agreement with the Skymist Immortal Empire, and he borrowed their strength to fight the internal warfare of our Evergreen Empire. We still have not held the Skymist Immortal Empire accountable for that and now they even have the face to bring up this dogshit agreement?”
“That’s right, the Skymist Immortal Empire is too arrogant.” Another immortal king icily spoke. Many of the nobility had looks of rage on their faces.
The Evergreen Immortal Emperor waved his hands casually, “There’s no need to say so much. Since they are already here, just do our part well and receive them as guests. As for that agreement, I want to see how they would broach the subject about it.”
“Yes.” Everyone nodded. This incident would surely cause much commotion. Most probably, this commotion wouldn’t die down in a short period of time.
In the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, Qin Wentian was quietly cultivating. Although it was tough to level up when one was at Immortal Foundation, Qin Wentian’s heart was filled with incomparable determination. He would do his best and wanted to raise his strength to the highest possible within the shortest time. Although immortal-foundation characters could live without worry in the immortal realms, if one really wanted to become an expert and stand shoulder to shoulder with those of true power, stepping into the immortal king realm was a must.
Only immortal king characters had the authority to speak and would be treated seriously in the immortal realms. They could even rule over an area or establish a powerful sect, or in fact, even rule as the king over an entire prefecture.
Today, after Qin Wentian finished cultivating, he saw Mo Qingcheng wearing a contemplative look on her face. He couldn’t help but smile as he asked, “Qingcheng, a penny for your thoughts?”
“Some questions regarding cultivation.” Mo Qingcheng smiled when she saw Qin Wentian walking over.
“You can ask me. If I can’t answer, I can seek the guidance of Senior Bai and the rest.” Qin Wentian walked beside her and spoke gently.
“Mhm.” Mo Qingcheng nodded. “Oh by the way, a few days ago the Taishan Immortal King sent some people over and said that after you finished your cultivation, he wants you to go and look for him. He seems to have some important matters to tell you.”
“Okay.” Qin Wentian nodded. “I will accompany you today and go tomorrow.”
“You should head over first. Since senior Taishan Immortal King is looking for you, there must be a major matter of great importance.”
“Okay, I will head over there first.” Qin Wentian pinched Mo Qingcheng’s cheek gently. After that, he headed in the direction of the Taishan Immortal King’s immortal palace.
Qin Wentian came before the immortal king and bowed, “Senior, are you looking for me?”
“Mhm, there are some matters which I should tell you.” The Taishan Immortal King nodded.
“Senior, please feel free to speak.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“You are still young and you are from a particle world. I’m sure you are not very clear regarding the history of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Let me briefly summarize for you then.” The Taishan Immortal King spoke. “Back then, the Evergreen Immortal Empire erupted with internal warfare. The Evergreen Immortal Emperor fought against another immortal emperor for the authority to govern the empire. Both parties had plenty of supporters and caused a great deal of commotion to the empire. However, there was another immortal empire involved in this internal warfare. They were none other than the Skymist Immortal Empire who was situated right next to the Evergreen Immortal Empire in terms of territories. The powerful Skymist Immortal Empire supported the Evergreen Immortal Emperor’s opponent.”
Qin Wentian listened quietly. Indeed, he wasn’t clear of many things regarding this immortal war. However, it seemed that Qing`er was sent to his particle world precisely because of this war. From this, one could infer that the situation back then was truly drastic. If not, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor wouldn’t have sent his beloved daughter away, hiding her within an obscure particle world and ignored their relationship as father and daughter. If in the event he lost and was killed, Qing`er could still live in safety at the very least.
“The Skymist Immortal Empire is extremely ancient and has a very deep foundation. They are very powerful and their strength isn’t something the united Eastern Sage Thirteen Prefectures could stand against. Back then, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor’s opponent received support from the Skymist Immortal Empire and that opponent once promised that the empire would send over one of their most illustrious princess within a thousand years over to be married to the Skymist Immortal Empire in return for their aid. In fact those years ago, there has already been some princesses sent over to the Skymist Immortal Empire. To put it more simply, the clan of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor’s opponent wasn’t completely obliterated. Some of them are married to the royal clan of the Skymist Immortal Empire.”
Qin Wentian started. Such behavior truly made one feel disdain. From this one could see that for the war fought back then, both parties including the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, didn’t have any confidence to win. It surely must have been a desperate battle.
“Now, the people of the Skymist Immortal Empire went to the royal capital of the Evergreen Immortal Empire and sent a letter wanting the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to honor the agreement made by his opponent.” The Taishan Immortal calmly spoke. Qin Wentian narrowed his eyes as a cold light flickered within.
“But this wasn’t an agreement made by the Evergreen Immortal Emperor. What qualifications does the Skymist Immortal Empire have to ask the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to follow through with the agreement?” Qin Wentian coldly spoke. He instantly thought of Qing`er and his eyes flashed with killing intent when he heard about the Skymist Immortal Empire.
“Although there’s nothing wrong in what you say, that opponent of the Evergreen Immortal Empire also had the authority to speak for the country. He made the agreement in his full stead as a candidate to become the emperor, and now, although the Skymist Immortal Empire was trying to twist words and force logic, they do have a sufficient reason.” The Taishan Immortal King spoke. “I’m afraid this matter would be disadvantageous to the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Also, it would affect Princess Qing`er.”
“Qing`er is the disciple of Matriarch Ji and is currently cultivating there. Matriarch Ji would most probably stand on her and the Evergreen Immortal Empire’s side.” Qin Wentian spoke. He naturally heard about Qing`er’s master before. Matriarch Ji was extremely proficient in the laws of time and space. She was an extremely powerful immortal emperor character.
“That might be true. However, I don’t know if you know about this one thing.” The Taishan Immortal King spoke again. “Back then, Zi Daolong the son of the Violet Emperor had once paid a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Emperor. I do not know what happened exactly but during that time, you were in the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Zi Daolong must have wanted the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to hand you over to him. However, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor didn’t do so. This matter must have caused plenty of unhappiness to the Violet Emperor. Right now, the Violet Emperor also sent some subordinates to the royal capital of the Evergreen Immortal Empire.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, he didn’t imagine that back then, the Evergreen Immortal Emperor had protected him. Towards this father of Qing`er whom he had never met yet, Qin Wentian felt a sense of gratitude. He was sure that the Evergreen Immortal Emperor truly dotes on and loves Qing`er.
“I will tell you one more thing. Before this, the relationship between the Violet Emperor and the Evergreen Immortal Emperor had always been excellent. There are even rumors saying that they used to belong to the same sect. It’s just that there were some differences in their age and they were both of different generations. But even so, it could be said that there was a friendship between the two of them.” The Taishan Immortal King spoke. Qin Wentian then recalled the words Zi Daoyang said to Qing`er back then when they were all in the City of Ancient Emperors. Seems like what he said was true.
Zi Daoyang truly died a wrongful death. He died from an ambush from Mo Xie.
“Many thanks to senior for the information.” Qin Wentian bowed. The Taishan Immortal King was a direct subordinate to the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord. The information he knew would surely be more compared to others. It seems that he was paying close attention to the situation in the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.
“What thoughts do you have?” The Taishan Immortal King asked.
“I wish to pay a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Empire.” Qin Wentian replied.
“Good.” The Taishan Immortal King had a smile on his face, he already anticipated Qin Wentian’s answer. This made Qin Wentian a little bewildered, he had no idea what the Taishan Immortal King meant by that.
“I will send some men to accompany you on this trip.” The Taishan Immortal King laughed, “You can visit the Evergreen Immortal Empire using the identity of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect.”
“This…” Qin Wentian stared at the Taishan Immortal King only to see the immortal king patting him on his shoulder. The immortal king laughed, “Actually, I really hope you can marry Princess Qing`er. In that case, the Evergreen Immortal Empire and Matriarch Ji would have a connection with our Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect. Hahaha.”
“Senior…” Qin Wentian was speechless. The Taishan Immortal King continued laughing, “What? In fact if it wasn’t for the case that Southern Phoenix Maidens are unable to marry out of their clan, I even thought of bringing you and Nanfeng Yunxi together.”
Qin Wentian was completely speechless. This Taishan Immortal King’s thinking wasn’t wrong and was actually extremely beneficial albeit being a little too… If he really did so, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect would be linked to three other great powers – the Evergreen Immortal Empire, Matriarch Ji and the Southern Phoenix Clan. This allied force was sufficient to awe and overcome many other major powers in the immortal realms. No wonder the Taishan Immortal King was all for him going to the Southern Phoenix Immortal City back then, he was already thinking about marriage alliances!
