Chapter 1103: Establishing Dominance
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The news of the Juxian Tower swiftly circulated the royal capital of the immortal empire. Although there wasn’t an intense clash, both the Skymist and Evergreen Immortal Empires have already hinted at their respective attitudes with regards to this matter.
The Skymist Immortal Emperor sent one of their princes, Skymist Hai, over and he verbally disrespected and insulted the two princesses, exhibiting a domineering manner and acted like the Skymist Immortal Empire would have its way regardless of what the Evergreen Immortal Empire wanted.
Similarly, important characters of the Evergreen Immortal Empire appeared. The younger sister of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, Princess Changping; and the daughter of the White Emperor, Princess Glaze, both personally appeared. Their reply was as domineering and tyrannical as their opponent. Their attitudes were clear, they had no intentions of honoring an agreement the Evergreen Immortal Emperor didn’t make. In truth, the conflict that day didn’t require the presences of these two princesses. But since they have already appeared, that by itself is an indication of the Evergreen Immortal Empire’s attitude.
The attention of everyone was gathered at the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. In fact, there were many experts who successively headed over to the direction of Evergreen Immortal Empire, wanting to see the situation there for themselves.
Princess Glaze has already said that the Evergreen Imperial Palace will welcome experts from all powers. Their gates are open in welcome to whoever wishes to enter.
This would be a direct face-off of the Skymist Immortal Empire and Evergreen Immortal Empire. The Skymist Immortal Empire already directly spoke about sparring to exchange pointers under the pretext of building up relationships among the juniors. Clearly, they were intending to smack the face of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Although their request was tactful, everyone knew their true intentions. They wanted to find an opportunity to dull the fire of the Evergreen Immortal Empire.
A period of three days was simply too short in the perspectives of immortal empires. It flew by in the blink of an eye. Today, the experts of all directions gathered and appeared outside the imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Their eyes were on the majestic palace before them, this place was the central governing area for the Evergreen Immortal Empire and many kings and marquises resided there. Only those nobilities with titles can enter and reside there. This was glory and also a symbol of status.
The towering gates of the imperial palace shone with dazzling silver light. They seemed to have been constructed with divine weapons. At this moment, the gate swung open as an ancient pathway appeared before them. They could enter the imperial palace if they followed this path down.
At this moment, groups of experts soared over from afar, several hundreds in number. They sat on greater demons and those greater demons exuded a malevolence that caused one’s heart to shiver. The greater demon mount in the lead radiated balefulness to the extreme, its eyes were filled with the coldness of killing intent. It was a greater demon White Tiger.
The man mounted on the white tiger was clad in blue. He exuded elegance and had a crown of feathers on his head. It was clear he had an extraordinary status. This man was an immortal king and there was a similarly visually-stunning woman beside him. This woman’s beauty also contained a sense of sharpness. It was especially true for her eyes.
Even for Skymist Hai, he wasn’t qualified to sit next to this young man. Clearly his status was way inferior. This man in blue was also a prince of the Skymist Immortal Empire and was someone whose talent was particularly outstanding. He was very famous in the Skymist Empire and wasn’t someone a silk pants like Skymist Hai could be compared to.
At this moment, the sound of a sword humming filled the air. A group of experts appeared, all of them riding on swords that emitted extreme sharpness. These were none other than experts from the Paragon Sword Sect.
The experts from the Taihua Immortal Dynasty arrived in a war chariot. The war chariot exuded a sense of majesticness and tyranny. The Taihua Immortal Dynasty was also an extremely strong major power that ruled over a region.
Those from the Sky Demon Palace all sat on demon mounts as they came over, shocking the others with their vast demonic aura. Many experts involuntarily gave way to them and for those ordinary mounts, they were all shaking under the pressure. More and more greater demons were appearing. Ordinary demonic beasts had no way to withstand the pressure.
Not only these peak-tier major powers arrived, there were many disciples from the other weaker immortal emperor-level powers that also arrived. Earlier, both the Skymist and Evergreen Immortal Empires said that there would be a gathering for the juniors to spar in the imperial palace. It would only be of benefit to them to witness the strength of juniors from peak-tier powers. In addition, they were also keen to watch the drama between the two empires play out.
These were all intelligent people. The words of Skymist Hai and their proposition for a spar was clearly just a pretext for them to stomp on the face of the Evergreen Immortal Empire. The Evergreen Immortal Empire understood this and the two princesses three days ago had also accepted and invited everyone who wishes to come into the imperial palace. In reality, they were prepared to answer the challenge.
Qin Wentian and his group also arrived, standing within the crowd so he wouldn’t be so conspicuous. However, Skymist Hai from the Skymist Immortal Empire easily saw them. He noticed that there were many guards around Qin Wentian. And although he didn’t know Qin Wentian’s real identity, he already understood that there was also an immortal emperor behind Qin Wentian. But…so what of it?
“You actually still dared to appear? Truly, you have some guts.” Skymist Hai stared at Qin Wentian from afar as he spoke.
“You really think highly of yourself.” Qin Wentian casually glanced at Skymist Hai, as though mocking Skymist Hai for not knowing his own strength and capabilities.
“Still as arrogant as ever. You best pray that you can exit this palace alive.” Skymist Hai laughed coldly in disdain. After that he turned his gaze away as the immortal king beside him called out, “Skymist Immortal Empire’s Skymist Jiang, leads a team of envoys to pay a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Empire.”
“Disciples from the Paragon Sword Sect pays a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Empire.” Another voice rang out. After that, more and more voices spoke. Qin Wentian then spoke as well, “Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect’s Qin Wentian is here to pay a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Empire with a team of envoys.”
As the sound of his voice faded, several gazes turned to him. Only now did these people know his identity.
He was actually from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect.
Right now, the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect was at war with the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect in the region of the thirteen prefectures. To think that the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect still has enough time and manpower to send a team of envoys to the Evergreen Immortal Empire.
“No wonder you are so arrogant. So he is from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect.” Skymist Hai spat in contempt. His eyes still flickered with coldness but he didn’t really care much now. The foundations of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect cannot even be compared to the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect’s. What does the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect have then to compare with his Skymist Immortal Empire?
Seems like the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect was too proud of themselves because they managed to wrest control of six prefectures from the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect. This caused this Qin Wentian to not understand the immensity of the heavens and earth.
“Everyone, please enter.” A voice rang out. At this moment, many serving girls appeared, respectfully welcoming and ushering in the guests. Regardless of the fact that the Skymist Immortal Empire came with ill intentions, the Evergreen Immortal Empire still welcomed them properly, not lacking manners and had the bearing of a good host.
The experts from all the other major powers descended to the ground from the air and walked towards the imperial palace. On their way, there were serving girls leading them, and because they are all immortals, their movement speed was extremely fast.
The imperial palace of the Evergreen Immortal Empire was exceedingly vast. There were the residences of many kings and marquises situated within. It was like a forest of majestic buildings. If one walked at normal speed, it was unknown how long it would take for them to enter the depths of the palace. They could only increase their pace and sped up.
Finally, the group of experts came to a vast empty space. This place was already set up for an immortal banquet and Princess Changping and the Crimson-eyed Marquis appeared at the host seat. When they saw the experts, they bowed slightly and spoke, “Welcome everyone to the imperial palace of our Evergreen Immortal Empire.”
“Are we not allowed to enter the emperor palace? My team of envoys from the Skymist Immortal Empire wishes to pay respects to the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.” Skymist Jiang glanced at Princess Changping as he spoke. No matter what, they were from the Skymist Immortal Empire. The Evergreen Immortal Empire actually wanted this mere Princess Changping to receive them?
“The great emperor is busy in his cultivation and doesn’t have much time. Hence, we can only replace him to play the part of the host and wait on everyone. There would be a prince from our Evergreen Immortal Empire appearing here later to play hospitality to all friends gathered here.” Princess Changping smiled. The Skymist Immortal Empire was truly rude. Even before entering the imperial palace, they were already so disrespectful. Now, they even wanted the Evergreen Immortal Emperor to receive them personally? They merely sent a single prince over on this expedition, weren’t they thinking a little too highly of themselves?
The Evergreen Immortal Empire will similarly also send out a prince to meet with them, an equal exchange. These people wanted to meet the Evergreen Immortal Emperor? They are still not qualified.
“Are they trying to establish dominance?” The hearts of all experts mused silently. The Skymist Immortal Empire came to pay a visit to the Evergreen Immortal Emperor but the immortal emperor basically didn’t even intend to meet with them. Let alone discussing the agreement.
At this moment, a group of figures soared through the air. Princess Glaze was actually among them. And beside her, there was a young figure that was extremely handsome in appearance. It was none other than a prince of the Evergreen Immortal Empire, one of the sons of the Evergreen Immortal Emperor, Evergreen Longhao, who is at the immortal king realm.
“This is his Highness Longhao, a prince of our Evergreen Immortal Empire.”
“Aunt!” Evergreen Longhao called out in greeting. He then turned his gaze to the immortal banquet. Today, experts from various powers have gathered, there were actually over a thousand people here. All of them were extraordinary characters.
“We greet your Highness.” Many people clasped their hands. Evergreen Longhao smiled and nodded, “Everyone is a guest here, please feel free to be seated.”
“Today our purpose in visiting the Evergreen Immortal Empire isn’t for this banquet. We are here firstly to see the Evergreen Immortal Emperor and secondly, to allow the juniors of our empire to spar against yours. Why is there a need to waste time?” Skymist Jiang was also a prince and didn’t even sit down. He directly spoke back, exuding a strong sense of oppression.
“Your Highness Jiang, you can speak whatever you want to say to my father to me. I will naturally relay your words. In any case, there’s no conflict between sparring and enjoying an immortal banquet.” Evergreen Longhao spoke. As the sound of his voice faded, an expert from his side walked over to the area in the center. With a stomp of his feet, bright light flashed as a battle platform appeared.
This battle platform was extremely large. Everyone discovered that the location of the banquet was intentionally arranged this way. All the experts from the various factions had a different table facing the central battle platform. Evidently, the Evergreen Immortal Empire planned everything before hand.
“This battle platform was constructed using immortal-ranked materials. It can withstand any attacks below the immortal-king level. There is also screen of light around the area to block all aftershocks resulting from the battles, it wouldn’t affect everyone from enjoying the banquet.” Evergreen Longhao spoke.
“Seems like if we don’t properly enjoy this immortal banquet and the sparring process, we won’t be able to meet with the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.” Skymist Jiang’s voice was filled with coldness. He was naturally unhappy. The Evergreen Immortal Empire was intending on not giving them face!
