Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The atmosphere around the Stonebell Rampart turned heavy. Several experts from different factions stood out in opposition, and the number of spectators grew more and more. Right now, they also understood from hearing what was said. It seems that the Eastern Regions of the immortal realms had invoked the immortal adjudication law and there were many powers joining up to target the Evergreen Immortal Empire. Qin Wentian made plenty of enemies precisely because of this matter.
“So many enemies, yet his cultivation base doesn’t seem to be high enough.” Many of the experts laughed as they stared at Qin Wentian. Being able to complete the 81 steps made them all impressed of him, but it wouldn’t be able to hide the fact that Qin Wentian’s cultivation base was truly still too low. A vast majority of people in the sacred academy all improved, and the fifth-level of immortal-foundation although couldn’t be considered weak, it wasn’t too strong.
“This is a truly troublesome matter. If one wants to become an incomparably dazzling character, they are destined to face off against multiple strong enemies from all directions. Even if we leave Qin Wentian aside, that day when Huang Shatian completed the 81 steps, the number of powerful enemies he attracted over was countless. Huang Shatian used the most domineering method, defeating so many enemies in a brutal fashion that none dared to move against him ever again.
They were all thinking of the challenges one had to face if one wished to stand at the very top.
For ancient emperors, it was rare even for an era to have one. For the ancient emperors in the history of the immortal realms, which of them didn’t manage to reach that height by trampling upon the bones of their countless powerful enemies, killing their way to the top, becoming unparalleled under the heavens. The history of each and every ancient emperor character were ones filled with battles and conflict.
Qin Wentian, his comrades treated him as their core but for his opponents, all of them viewed him with enmity, wanting to crush him to death.
“How interesting, this is the first time this monk has witnessed such an interesting thing.” At this moment, a voice drifted over. From the crowd, three monks walked out, but other than one of them being bald, the other two had hair on their heads. This was especially so for the monk on the left, although he was dressed in the garb of a monk, he was extraordinary handsome and exuded a feeling of elegance.
The person who spoke was none other than the monk in the center. He walked over here and laughed in a low voice. “Immortal realms, what era is this? There are actually so many forces fighting for the sake of a beauty?”
When Qin Wentian heard this voice, he couldn’t help but to shake his head. This monk was none other than Bujie and behind the three monks, there was also another group of fairy-like maidens, they were all female cultivators from the Jadestage Immortal Palace.
“What era is this? Why do monks like to interfere in other people’s business?” A disciple from the Violet Emperor Sect coldly snorted, with an unkind expression on his face.
“Senior brother, he dares to discriminate against monks.” Bujie hid behind the handsome monk on the left and pointed to that disciple from the Violet Emperor Sect as he complained.
“You guys can interfere in the matters of others and we monks can’t?” That handsome-looking monk domineering spoke, as a terrifying aura gushed forth from him and enveloped that disciple from the Violet Emperor Sect.
“As monks, it’s naturally for the best if you three don’t be busybodies.” That disciple continued.
“Stop talking nonsense. If I want to interfere it means I will interfere. What can you do?” That handsome monk continued in a ferocious manner, his words causing the Violet Emperor’s disciple’s aura to similarly gush out. The anger on his face deepened as he coldly spoke, “You want to try me?”
“Senior brother he is insulting you!” Bujie pointed to that disciple and spoke. After that, The kasaya of the handsome monk fluttered as his aura grew increasingly violent, like that of howling winds and torrential rains.
With a loud shout, a powerful wave of buddhic energy gushed over, causing the countenance of the Violet Emperor’s disciple to instantly turn red as an unbearable expression of pain could be seen on his face. After that he continuously retreated and with a low groan of agony, he spat out a mouthful of blood. His hand was clutching on his chest, at the position where his heart was, as his countenance turned incredibly unsightly.
Several other disciples from the Violet Emperor Sect all stepped out, their auras gushing forward. Their faces were all ashen, how strong was this monk exactly? With just a shout, he actually injured one of their comrades. What power was this?
“How dare you.” A person icily stated. This domineering monk which suddenly appeared caused everyone to have strange expressions in their eyes. How tyrannical, this caused many present to wonder about the origins of this monk. Naturally, there were also some here who belonged to peak powers, for example the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire, that already knew the identity of these monks.
“Such monks who don’t care about logic. Most probably, they are from the Askheart Temple.” Huang Wudi had a look of unhappiness on his face. Although he wasn’t acquainted with that disciple of the Violet Emperor Sect, they were both still allies on the same side.
“What logic?” That handsome monk glanced at Huang Wudi as he asked.
“Senior, he means that because they are strong, no matter what they do, everything is logical. Now that he says we don’t care about logic, maybe he is insinuating that we are too weak.” Bujie hid behind his senior brother and added fuel to the fire.
“Junior brother, I understand. I just want to ask him.” That handsome monk gently spoke with no trace of his earlier tyranny, causing the spectators to all be speechless. The monks from the Askheart Temple were never famous for their logic but there were many who have only heard of them until today. From the earlier interactions, one was domineering and tyrannical, one was wretched and shameless, while one was silent, preferring not to talk.
“This time around, there are three monks from the Askheart Temple that entered the sacred academy. Buyu (not to speak), Buchen (not to anger), and Bujie (not to abstain). Reverend Buyu has never liked to speak much and Bujie’s personality is just like his buddhist title. Only Buchen is the complete opposite, he was the one with the most violent and eruptive temper. Hence, I guess, that should be you sir. It is just that my Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire has never had any conflict with your Askheart Temple before. The matter here is a matter of my empire, does the Askheart Temple really want to interfere?” Huang Wudi spoke, causing many spectators to have strange expressions on their faces. This Huang Wudi was actually so polite to these three monks? This isn’t like his personality at all. If his strength surpassed them, Huang Wudi would always use his fists to solve everything.
“Junior brother, why are we interfering in this matter?” Buchen spoke to Bujie.
“Senior brother, as warriors of the buddhist path, we emphasize on having a state of heart that’s calm and at peace. In the past, this brother Qin has aided me before, and hence, junior brother naturally has to return back this debt of kindness to him. Senior brother, since you are my senior brother, my matters are naturally your matters.” Bujie spoke with a straight face in an extremely serious tone. Everyone here was stunned speechless. These two monks had a state of heart that was calm and at peace?
“Junior brother truly makes sense.” Buchen contemplated awhile before he nodded his head. He then stared at Huang Wudi, “You’ve also heard it. The matters of benefactor Qin, are now my matters as well.”
“Have you all played around enough?” The experts from the Skymist Immortal Empire barked unhappily.
“Nope, what about it…?” Buchen stared at the expert who spoke, and spoke in a tone with no anger at all.
“BOOM!” An expert from the Skymist Immortal Empire stepped out. Since the monks haven’t played around enough yet, they can only battle it out. That expert who walked out had a very strong cultivation base, at the eighth-level. His aura was very terrifying as he coldly snorted, “Roll the fuck out then.”
“Senior brother, he…” Bujie’s eyes opened extremely wide as he involuntary shuddered. Sighing deeply in his heart, he sincerely prayed for the well-being of that person who just spoke. There were actually people in this world who are truly unafraid of death.
Buchen appeared on the contrary, very calm. He had no expression on his face, save for a slight twitch of his eyebrows. Those who were familiar with him knew that this was a sign of an oncoming calamity.
“I’ve already gotten used to walking, why would I be rolling?” Buchen walked out. Both of their auras turned violent and with a loud roar, that Skymist expert launched an attack that manifested a powerful divine elephant which rushed over, wanting to smash Buchen.
“Sigh, why must things be like this…” Bujie sighed. As the sound of his voice faded, an incomparably radiant buddhic light surrounded Buchen, akin to the golden body of a buddha. Millions of palms appeared in the air, a part of them directly grabbing hold of the divine elephant and forcibly halting its momentum while the others shot towards that Skymist expert simultaneously.
The countenance of that expert drastically changed, he continuously blasted out divine elephant energy, infusing more destructive might within. However, the entire space was trembling under the onslaught of those millions of palm imprints, which also easily neutralized whatever attacks he could blast out. That Skymist expert could only retreat, those millions of palms shot out, extending without limits, directly enveloping him, closing up a section in space. In fact, the spectators could no longer see the figure of that expert from the Skymist Immortal Empire. A moment later, sounds of numerous explosions went off as the enveloped space trembled violently.
“Ai…” Bujie sighed unendingly, feeling sorry for that expert in his heart. Those other experts from the Skymist Immortal Empire also had looks of fear on their faces, that battle simply ended too fast. When the palms all disappeared, everyone only saw that expert from the Skymist Immortal Empire lying on the ground convulsing intensely as his entire body was completely swollen. He coughed up a mixture of blood and froth before fainting completely. Most probably, this battle would be a recurring nightmare to him.
“My senior brother prefers to keep a low profile and always has a good temper, but you guys cannot insult him like that.” Bujie spoke in a tone of sadness. Qin Wentian was sweating buckets, truly… that senior brother of Bujie was extremely ‘low profile’ with an extremely ‘good’ temper…
However, he didn’t expect that this shameless monk would appear here now to help him. After all, given the relative power of both sides, his was the weaker side.
Bujie’s senior brother should be exceptionally powerful, even Huang Wudi felt some trepidation towards him. Clearly, this Buchen was an extraordinary character but it was just that he didn’t show it usually.
“Brother Qin, check out how brotherly this monk me, is being. How am I like you? Denying our brotherhood after seeing some pretty girls, how lamentable.” It seems like this monk Bujie already knew about that day where the princess of the Shooting Sun Empire found Qin Wentian. This caused Qin Wentian to roll his eyes, this monk truly seems to be omniscient.
“Thank you.” Qin Wentian eventually smiled, he didn’t choose to reject Bujie’s help. This in the first place wasn’t any sort of fair battle. Naturally, the stronger his side is, the better it would be.
“Qin Wentian, this is ultimately still your battle. No matter how much you hide behind others, you won’t be able to evade it.” The experts from the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire blocked the pathway between Qing`er and him, not allowing them to meet.
“Why are your words so vapid… If you want to talk about your battle with him, didn’t Huang Youdi already lose? Now after he was humiliated, you want Qin Wentian to fight against all of you alone?” Bujie spoke in a depressed manner.
“Truly, how boring this is. We can’t kill people in the sacred academy, so if you hit my allies, I will hit you back. Vapid indeed.” Buchen shook his head and sighed. “Make it quick if you all want to start a battle.”
“Buchen, you wish to start the battle so fast? Could it be that you are afraid of encountering me?” A faint-sounding voice drifted over, causing the crowd of experts gathered here to turn their gazes over. After that, they only saw a group of experts soaring through the air. Just a single glance was sufficient to tell that the expert standing in the center was extraordinary.
Qin Wentian’s gaze also turned toward that direct, and he naturally had an inkling who this newcomer might be. This must be the royal elder brother spoken of by Huang Youdi.
The person who came was precisely the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire’s Huang Shatian!
He also saw Qin Wentian and spoke with a hint of surprise, “I really didn’t expect there would be another person managing to complete the 81 steps of the Stonebell Rampart. Seeing that you can do that, it’s only normal that Youdi lost to you. However, you made a mistake, you shouldn’t have humiliated him!”
