Chapter 1157: Arranged Battle in the Sacred Academy
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
At the 35th year mark, Qin Wentian who was on the lead seat finally opened his eyes. His eyes were extremely calm and immeasurably deep and his aura was retracted. This cultivation period lasted for a total of eleven years. There were no others on the immortal seats, save for him alone.
“Has your comprehension finally concluded?” An ethereal voice rang out. Qin Wentian nodded, “Senior, there’s a dao lecture every twelve years? If that is the case, the date for the third lecture is near. Will we be able to still attend it?”
“There are no more lectures.” That voice rang out, “Going too far beyond the limit is the same as falling short. You guys have already benefited twice and the knowledge gained is sufficient to aid you in your cultivation for many years. Right now, the rules of the sacred academy have changed and you can go down the mountain to take a look for yourself. If there’s a lecture again, I naturally will inform all of you. But if there isn’t one, we will just let nature take its course.”
Qin Wentian nodded his head lightly, feeling that it was a little unfortunate. Has the rules of the sacred academy changed? He stood up and dismounted from his seat. When he stared at the horizons, he saw three other similar academies floating in the skies. He naturally knew what that meant. Right now, all four academies could already see each other, they must already be connected.
“When I crossed the immortal sea, I once cultivated the art of truth in an ancient castle. Can I ask senior where that place is?” Qin Wentian inquired.
“In the ancient castle, you saw four sacred academies. That ancient castle is naturally at the center of all four academies.” That ethereal voice rang out. Qin Wentian’s eyes flickered as he stared at the center point of all four academies. Over there, there was something akin to a world. It was the Sky Connecting Realm.
“The ancient castle is within the Sky Connecting Realm?” Qin Wentian felt a little puzzled. That didn’t seem to be the case.
“The Sky Connecting Realm is a world onto its own. You can leave now.” That voice continued. Qin Wentian silently mused, only half-understanding those words. After that, he bowed low to the statue before him and replied, “Junior will take my leave.”
After speaking, he went down the stairway and returned to the sacred academy he was in. A mysterious aura then blocked the stairway. Most probably, it was impossible to return back up.
He lifted his feet and walked forward, moving with determined steps. Unknowingly, he was now already at the fifth-level of immortal-foundation and his combat prowess was many times greater compared to the time when he just entered the academy. Even with the numerous demons here in this particular sacred academy, with his current strength, he should have enough strength now to contend with most of them.
“The rules of the academy truly have changed.” Qin Wentian could feel a formless law energy enveloping this world. He knew that right now in the academy, immortal treasures and weapons would no longer be of use.
The rules in the Sky Connecting Realm also changed, one need not enter there by sitting on the sky connecting altar. Right now, one could enter with their true bodies and the center of the Sky Connecting Realm has opened up paths that led to four different locations. The people of each academy would be able to view the Sky Connecting Immortal Rock for the Supreme Might Rankings when they headed over to here, after they entered.
At this moment, Qin Wentian was before the immortal rock. On the Supreme Might Immortal Rankings, pictures of over ten experts could be seen. These people were all extremely powerful characters from all levels of immortal-foundation. Not only that, there wasn’t a single defeat on their battle records, and their images were all recorded on the ranking board.
The Sky Connecting Realm was a world onto its own. When Qin Wentian recalled this sentence, he faintly understood some things.
After a few moments, Qin Wentian departed the area. He searched for the entrance to another sacred academy and begin walking towards it. After so many years, he truly missed Qing`er, Qingcheng and also his junior brother Jun Mengchen. Qingcheng wasn’t in the academy, but Qing`er, Jun Mengchen, Zi Qingxuan and the others were all here cultivating. Their improvements should most likely be very large as well.
The Sky Connecting Realm and all four sacred academies are very vast. It wasn’t easy to search for a single person.
After entering his selected academy, Qin Wentian saw many experts contending against each other and there were even team battles. Most probably, the two groups both contained individuals with too much pride and a spark ignited the conflict between them. Other than this, he clearly also discovered that the number of people in his previous academy was much fewer in comparison to this one.
Naturally right now, the sacred academies are the same. All four of them are the Heavenly Dao Sacred Academy, there was no distinction between them now.
Qin Wentian had no idea that during the time he was immersed in that state, many things had happened. The expert from the Sky Roc Race, Jia Gu, because he was unhappy with the fact that Qin Wentian still ultimately took the lead seat back then, he often created trouble for Nanfeng Yunxi. Little Rascal and the others and had injured many of them. The White Tiger Race also knew of the close relationship between Qin Wentian and the Southern Phoenix Clan, and have been fighting intense battles with the Southern Phoenix Clan and experts from the Battle Saint Tribe for many years now.
Other than that, because Lei Ba was jealous of the fact that Chu Qingyi announced publicly that she was Qin Wentian’s woman, he felt humiliated and focused on his cultivation. Now that he stepped into the eighth-level, he had an unexcelled arrogance and announced publicly that he would humiliate the woman Qin Wentian loves, Princess Qing`er. He even caused trouble many times for Jun Mengchen, but was stopped by that disciple from the Heavenly Talisman Realm. The two of them fought several times against each other since then.
Qing`er was harrassed often, she had an icy personality and didn’t like to speak much and would often move about with the other disciples of Matriarch Ji. However even so, there were still many exceedingly proud individuals who said that they wanted Qing`er to be their woman and would make a trip to the Evergreen Immortal Empire to ask for her hand in marriage from the Evergreen Immortal Emperor.
Other than these people whom Qin Wentian was close to, there were naturally also many other conflicts between the other students of the sacred academy.
Qin Wentian slowly wandered the academy but he didn’t encounter Jun Mengchen or anyone else. Instead, he encountered someone he had met once before, all because of that monk Bujie. This female was none other than the maiden from the Pursuing Sun Immortal Empire. Right now, she was wearing a smoking hot dress that accentuated the curves of her figure. However, despite how hot she was, the look in her eyes was extremely cold, able to cause chills in the hearts of people.
“The incident from before is just a misunderstanding.” Qin Wentian stared at the female as he spoke. That year, he and the Jadestage Immortal Palace’s fairies were all tricked by Bujie, used by that damnable monk as a means to escape because of some unknown things he had done to this maiden.
“I know you. When we entered the academy, you are the one with the perfect saint-grade immortal foundation. You are close friends with that lecherous monk and you even did something to Chu Qingyi, tossing her away after you had your fun with her, right? I can tell what sort of character you are.” That female coldly spoke, her words causing Qin Wentian to shake his head as he smiled bitterly. That single sentence from Chu Qingyi back then, not only damaged her own reputation, she had dragged him down into the mud with her as well.
“Sometimes, what you see or hear might not be the truth. In truth, I also want to find that monk to give him a harsh beating. If you manage to capture him, remember to be more ruthless when you give him a beating. As for Chu Qingyi, I didn’t do anything inappropriate to her or sully her honor as a maiden. I already have someone whom I am in love with, and that person is also currently in the sacred academy.” Qin Wentian explained.
“Are you referring to Princess Qing`er from the Evergreen Immortal Empire?” That female asked, causing Qin Wentian to start. Seems like this female has thoroughly investigated him.
“Since you know about Qing`er, you should know that I’m not lying.” Qin Wentian spoke. He could sense that although there was coldness in the eyes of this female, there were no malicious intentions or any thoughts of killing him. Most probably, she only wanted to teach him a lesson. If that monk Bujie really did do some unspeakable things to her, this reaction was only natural. Hence, Qin Wentian was still quite polite.
“Who knows what you men think.” The tone of the female was somewhat unconvinced, apparently she was also thinking of that damnable monk.
“Let me warn you out of good will, although the person you like might be Princess Qing`er, she might not become your woman.” That female spoke, her words causing Qin Wentian’s eyes to flicker. He then smiled, “I’ve already gone to the Evergreen Immortal Empire, I believe there should be no problems with regards to that.”
“You are really self-confident, but you should know as long as the dust has yet to settle, there would inevitably always be some changes.” That female continued, “There are not many supreme beauties in the immortal realms, and out of those, the ones with outstanding talents and backgrounds are even fewer. Just so coincidentally, there are quite a few of these supreme beauties in the sacred academy and the males here are also the most elite out of the entire immortal realms. You should know that for Qing`er, a disciple of Matriarch Ji and a princess of an immortal empire, there would naturally be many falling for her.”
“It’s very normal to fall in love with Qing`er. My judgement has always been good.” Qin Wentian laughed. Even Chu Qingyi had plenty of admirers, let alone Qing`er.
The female discovered that he didn’t seem to mind in the slightest and was on the contrary, feeling a little proud instead. She couldn’t help but to silently glance at this young man before her. What a proud individual, it seems that he didn’t mind the competition and this made her feel that Chu Qingyi’s words might not have been real.
A matter like pride wasn’t something that could be faked easily. Especially when in front of her eyes.
“If you know what characters are among those people, maybe you would no longer be so arrogant.” That female laughed. “Let me remind you again out of my kind intentions. Not long ago there was an arranged battle in this sacred academy. You should be acquainted with the main characters in this battle. Other than Lei Ba from the Thundergod Hall, there was also another young man named Jun Mengchen.”
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed as he asked, “Where?”
“I can bring you there.” That female spoke with indifference. After that, her silhouette flashed as Qin Wentian followed after.
“Why are you helping me?” Qin Wentian walked to the side of the female and asked.
“Do you think I’m helping you?” That female smiled at Qin Wentian. Upon staring into her eyes, Qin Wentian somewhat understood what her intentions was. For this battle, Jun Mengchen was most likely at a disadvantage. Given Lei Ba’s hatred for him, there was truly no need for this female to do anything.
Qin Wentian didn’t say anything more and followed closely after the female, speeding towards the location of the arranged battle.
In a location where there was a vast ancient palace, the gazes of many geniuses all turned to a certain direction. At the airspace above the palace, there were experts from two factions currently fighting against each other. In fact, many were already injured and clearly, they had already undergone a round of battles.
Jun Mengchen was fighting currently as well. His perfect immortal-foundation and his outstanding combat prowess were all indicators of his supreme talent. He domineeringly suppressed his opponent, exuding a magnificence that lasted throughout the generations.
There were several people spectating. These people were all clad in luxurious robes and should have some background. One among them was extremely young but the luster he emitted felt incredibly brilliant. When he saw Jun Mengchen fighting, an intense battle intent flickered in his eyes. Jun Mengchen was using Emperorking Force?
He stepped out and released his immortal foundation. His entire body exuded a terrifying emperor air, as though this entire world were his subjects.
“BOOM!” Jun Mengchen decimated the opponent before him with a single punch. After that, that young man walked towards Jun Mengchen and slammed out with his own attack. When he attacked, it seemed that the image of an ancient emperor covered the entire space, as an overwhelming blast of power directly shot towards Jun Mengchen. Jun Mengchen stiffened, he then lifted his palms to defend as the energy of the world frenziedly circulated, aiding him to dissipate that blast of power.
“Despicable!” An expert stepped out wanting to help Jun Mengchen but at the moment he stepped out, Lei Ba descended from the skies. His tyrannical figure was like a thunder god, emanating a might so strong that no one could surpass.
