Chapter 1262: Xia Devil King
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Many experts here had a curious look on their faces. This devil king wasn’t an ordinary expert at the devil king realm. Even for experts at the devil king realm, the disparity between their strengths was still extremely vast.
In addition, this man was a good friend of the devil emperor, who roamed about with the devil emperor when they were young. Such a connection with the devil emperor led to the supreme position and status of this particular devil king.
At this moment, who was the young man he thought so highly of?
The devil kings of all the major powers from the Fallen Devil Island were all extremely curious.
“Old ancestor!” Someone from afar called out. After which, a young man cloaked in black walked over and directly entered the most elite core sector, sitting behind Qin Wentian, surpassing Ba Xiao’s seat.
“Xia Yuan, do your best.” The Xia Devil King nodded. This young man was none other than the Xia Yuan who has been mentioned earlier, a terrifying character on the Devil Rankings.
Xia Yuan was a terrifying expert who was at the peak of devil-foundation for several hundreds of years. He already reached the peak around a few hundred years ago, able to briefly glimpse the gate leading to the devil king realm. His strength wasn’t something that could be compared to those experts who just glimpsed the gate. Hence, this was the reason why he could enter the elite sector.
Xia Yuan, Old Chai and Ba Xiao, were the top three most terrifying characters on the Devil Rankings.
Ba Xiao was deemed the last-ranked among these three. Xia Yuan and Old Chai were both more fearsome than Ba Xiao.
However, the Old Xia Devil King actually said that there was someone who surpassed even Xia Yuan? Who was the man he was talking about exactly?
More and more experts came by, even the four supreme devil kings, under the devil emperor directly, have arrived. They nodded to Old Xia Devil King, “Old Xia, how are you? His majesty would often think about you.”
“At my current level, how would I be anything but fine? The only thing I’m ‘not fine’ with, is that I still can’t break through yet, unable to stand side by side with his Majesty the devil emperor.” Old Xia Devil King smiled. The others didn’t feel taken aback, on the Fallen Devil Island, he was the only one who could speak of things like this so casually, comparing himself to the devil emperor.
Even for loyal subordinates of the devil emperor, they wouldn’t dare to compare themselves with him. The friendship between the devil emperor and Old Xia were forged through life-and-death. If not, it was impossible for their relationship to be this good after so many years.
“Old Xia is right. Given his temperament, he would break through the bindings of this level sooner or later.” The devil kings here laughed.
“Haha, thanks for the auspicious words.” Old Xia stroked his beard and laughed.
“Xia Yuan came pretty early.” At this moment a voice rang out. The gazes of the crowd turned, only to see an old man walking over. Despite his aged appearance, spirit filled his steps and he seemed extremely energetic.
“Old Chai is here.” A devil king smiled. This Old Chai was an extremely famous character, one of the strongest two on the Devil Rankings.
In addition, he had stayed on the Devil Rankings for an extremely long time. Despite batches of geniuses changing again and again, he was still in the rankings.
Evidently, this Old Chai was extremely old and had stopped at this cultivation level for a very long time. He had truly reached the pinnacle of the devil-foundation realm, it was just that no matter what he did, he wasn’t able to cross the last step and enter the devil king realm.
Somebody said that his talent was a shade inferior, being able to reach his current step was already maxing out his luck and effort. There were also people saying that his destiny has not yet arrived, but there was no problem with his talent or he wouldn’t be able to reach his current step.
“Little fellows are all filled with energy and vitality. This old man me is almost ready for the grave.” Old Chai walked to the side of Xia Yuan, patted his shoulder as though they were old friends as he sat down. However, Xia Yuan merely snorted coldly, “Don’t worry, I will be extremely cautious towards you or I wouldn’t even know how I died.”
“Young people are always so impulsive. I’ve already lived so long and killing and fighting has long become boring for me. Today, I’m only here to offer my congratulations to his Majesty. In any case, this old me has already attended the celebration several times but sadly, I’m still unable to break through.” Old Chai shook his head. After which, he then turned to Qin Wentian who was in the sector before him.
“Little fellow, who are you? Why have I never see you before?” Old Chai asked.
“My name is Qin Wentian.” Qin Wentian nodded and smiled.
“The heroes of the younger generations would replace that of old. This world is for you all.” Old Chai sighed, as though musing about something. Qin Wentian only smiled. How could there be any simple characters at the peak of the devil-foundation level?
The devil kings in the surroundings chatted leisurely. It seemed that many of the devil kings, which were the rulers of the islands, were extremely confident in the devil generals under them. As time flowed on, Qin Wentian already saw over ten familiar faces. A majority of them were enemies from the Skymist Alliance, but this was only to be expected as more of them entered the Myriad Devil Islands.
Qin Wentian didn’t interact with those people. It was better to be low profile in this situation, it was enough as long as both parties knew what was going on. A single glance was already sufficient to communicate their intent, but naturally with regards to their enemies, their gazes were all flickering with coldness as they glanced over.
Right now, another person came to the sector Qin Wentian was at. Qin Wentian glanced at him and nodded slightly, that person nodded back to him as well. This caused many people to have looks of bewilderment on their faces. What did these two meant by that?
Were they acquainted with each other or not?
At this moment, at the sector Qi Da was in, several figures stood up at the same time, staring with respect in the direction of this young man who just arrived.
It was as though he became the focal point of the crowd instantly.
Many devil kings glanced over, all of them were being attracted to the aura of this young man. Although this young man was only at the peak of the devil-foundation, his aura made it so that it seemed as though he was one with the heavens. Every step he took was filled with a unique rhythm.
This person, wasn’t simple.
“Haha, he is here.” The Xia Devil King laughed, causing the eyes of the devil kings nearby to flicker.
Was this the young man spoken of by Old Xia? He said that Xia Yuan was inferior to this man.
Given Old Xia Devil King’s judgement, he naturally wouldn’t make a mistake. In that case, that meant that this young man was definitely extremely outstanding for sure.
“Who is he? Why is Old Xia thinking so highly of him?” A devil king under the devil emperor asked.
“The period of time where I’m acquainted with him, isn’t long. However, you all will soon know why I’m praising him so much. He will definitely become a most dazzling character and I really hope that his Majesty the devil emperor would be able to recruit him as a disciple. If that is the case, his accomplishments in the future would most assuredly be extraordinary.” The Old Xia Devil King smiled, staring at the young man who was walking over with satisfaction.
“Old Xia.” The young man came by and nodded slightly to Old Xia.
“Just take a seat, I’m waiting to watch your performance.” Old Devil King Xia smiled.
The young man glanced at his surroundings. After which, he walked in the direction of Qin Wentian and sat down beside him. He didn’t look at Qin Wentian and only sat there quietly.
Xia Yuan’s gaze was filled with complexity as he stared at this young man. His old ancestor thought more highly of this man compared to him, making him extremely frustrated. However, he fought with this man before and understood why this was so.
This person, was undoubtedly a terrifying character.
As the young man sat down, the several experts who stood up earlier all sat back down as well. The gazes of many turned to the young man, all of them wanted to pay attention to those few supreme characters at the elite sector seats.
“I knew you would come here for sure.” At this moment, the young man who had been silent, suddenly spoke. This caused those in the vicinity, including the devil kings here to glance at him.
Who was he speaking to?
“So?” Qin Wentian replied.
When the sound of his voice faded, the eyes of the devil kings in the surroundings all gleamed with sharpness. These two dazzling characters actually knew each other.
“So, I came to the Fallen Devil Island earlier to wait for you.” The young man continued. Qin Wentian smiled, “Now, I’m here.”
“Let’s hope you won’t disappoint me too much.” That young man calmly added.
“In the past, I’ve already surprised you once. This time around, I will naturally not make you disappointed.” Qin Wentian replied just as calmly. The person sitting beside him, was none other than Huang Shatian.
He’s arrived and from what Huang Shatian was saying, he was here earlier compared to Qin Wentian. In fact, he was even acquainted with the old monster Old Xia, causing the Xia Devil King to think extremely highly of him.
On this island, the old monster Old Xia was the person closest to the devil emperor. One could say that the first step Huang Shatian took on this path, was further compared to him.
Huang Shatian was truly a terrifying opponent.
“Interesting.” The old monster Old Xia smiled. He didn’t expect that there would be someone here which Huang Shatian was waiting for. In addition, that young man sat together with Huang Shatian. Seems like this banquet was going to get more and more interesting.
The Blackstone Devil King from afar, frowned, feeling some worry. The young man whom the Old Xia Devil King thought highly of, seemed to have a grudge with Qin Wentian.
He knew the reason why Qin Wentian came here from the immortal realms. It was evident that this person was an enemy of Qin Wentian. However, since the old monster Old Xia was praising him so much, there was no need to doubt his strength.
The boundlessly vast spectator stands were completely filled with people. Right now at a remote corner, a beautiful silhouette appeared there. This person was none other than Lady Xin Yu from the Celestial Devil Lodge.
Xin Yu’s beautiful eyes unceasingly searched the crowd, however she couldn’t find the one she was searching for. Unintentionally, she glanced at the elite sector at the center area and at that very moment, her beautiful gaze froze there as her heartbeat quickened.
She saw the man she was looking for. He was sitting in the most elite sector, with devil kings all around him. How resplendent was that? Even Ba Xiao, didn’t have the qualifications to sit there.
“Hahaha, this year is as lively as before. Old friend, you are here.” A voice rang out. After that, the crowd glanced over, only to see a shadowy figure suddenly turning corporeal, appearing in the most illustrious emperor seat.
At that instant, countless figures stood out as they bowed in respect, “We pay our respects to the devil emperor.”
“I’m here, I’m here, but how can I be as impressive as you?” Old monster Old Xia also stood up. Although they were old friends, the devil emperor’s status was supreme. He still had to show some respect.
“Old friend, you are still the same as before.” The devil emperor laughed. After that, he turned his imposing gaze towards the crowd, sweeping through everything.
“Everyone, feel free to be seated.” The Fallen Devil Emperor waved his hands.
“Many thanks your Majesty.” Everyone bowed and sat down. Countless gazes were focused on the devil emperor, all of them wanted to see what sort of existence this, the master of the Fallen Devil Region, was exactly!
