Chapter 1285: Killed
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
“Are you guys rebelling?” The Old Xia Devil King howled in madness. The four great protectors of the Fallen Devil Emperor actually tried to kill him, including the subordinates of the Vast Sky Devil Emperor. He was surrounded, and terrifying devilish might completely covered him. He would find it hard to escape even if given wings.
“Old Xia, you influenced the decision of his Majesty that day. His Majesty treats you as a good friend, and hence, he allowed you to do as you wish. But now things have already reached this state…In order to avoid the needless sacrifices that war would cause to both regions, you best give them a satisfactory answer.” A protector devil king spoke. It was reality that the Vast Sky Devil Emperor was a level stronger in comparison to the Fallen Devil Emperor.
The battle in the air made this point extremely clear. If both side waged a war, the ones who died wouldn’t be just a mere devil king. The entire devil palace would even be destroyed.
Hence, there must be someone standing out to give a satisfactory answer.
The Fallen Devil Emperor and the Old Xia Devil King were extremely close friends, there was no way he would be able to bring this up. Hence, his subordinates had no choice but to stand up and call out the Old Xia Devil King.
The other devil kings under the Fallen Devil Emperor didn’t say anything but they didn’t interfere to stop. Since the protectors already acted, there was no need for them to interfere in this. It was better to step aside or they might suffer the displeasure of the Fallen Devil King. But as to them actively helping the Old Xia Devil King? They naturally wouldn’t do so either.
If a war started, they might even lose their lives. Who wouldn’t stand on their own viewpoint and consider things? In the face of everything, benefits were still the deciding factors for actions to be taken.
Back then, Qin Wentian was merely a talented junior. So what if he was unfair towards him? Given Old Xia Devil King’s status, nobody would say anything more. But now, Qin Wentian brought a devil emperor and army back here, how could things still be the same. Since the situation changed, the best solution now was to sacrifice the Old Xia Devil King.
As the protectors of the Fallen Devil Emperor, they naturally had to do their utmost for him even if he were to blame them for it later.
Let alone the fact that the Old Xia Devil King tried to sneak attack Qin Wentian earlier. Since Qin Wentian could bring an army here, it definitely meant that his relationship with the Vast Sky Devil Emperor wasn’t a slight one. Once Qin Wentian died, the Vast Sky Devil Emperor would surely be completely enraged and the consequences would be unimaginable. No matter what, the Old Xia Devil King had to die – this was the answer.
On the ground, Xia Yuan was completely pale. What was going on? A Huang Shatian alone was monstrous enough and now, there was another Qin Wentian. Also, the commotion this caused was far greater than the commotion Huang Shatian had created back then. Black clouds now filled the sky, the pressure from the emperor-ranked battle was so great that it even had the power to crumble the emperor palace into pieces.
In the crowd, Old Chai glanced at the battle in the air, feeling extremely shocked in his heart. Luckily he didn’t overly offend Qin Wentian back then or his ending would definitely be very miserable. Why would monsters like Huang Shatian and Qin Wentian suddenly appear here?
“Hahaha, you guys want to sacrifice me, Xia Mo?” The Old Xia Devil King laughed crazily, his long hair fluttering in the wind.
“Since Old Xia isn’t willing to do it himself, we can only offend you then.”
A protector spoke. After which, numerous devil kings acted together, sealing the his pathways of retreat. Old Xia’s maniacal laughter resounded out in the air. A bright burst of devil light radiated from him as he dashed towards the four great protectors. He had walked tyrannically all through his life and was extremely good friends with the Fallen Devil Emperor. Yet today, he would become a sacrifice because of a mere junior?
The battle shook the heavens and earth. The entire area was sealed by the subordinates of the Vast Sky Devil Emperor, preventing the aftershocks from spreading. The spectators from afar all felt their hearts shaking and this wasn’t only because of the emperor-ranked battle, but was also because of how devil kings on both side had surrounded the Old Xia Devil King.
“This world changes too fast.” Many people silently mused. From afar, more and more people came here to spectate. When they saw the army brought here by Qin Wentian, all of them were speechless.
The four great protectors were all fighting against Old Xia now. No matter how strong Old Xia might be, there was no way he could win. He went all out and injured two protectors while he received a critical attack, causing his organs to shatter.
“BOOM!” Another blast of destructive might slammed into him, causing him to shudder violently as blood flowed freely from his wounds. Even his gaze seemed to dim, seemingly already on the doorway to death.
“I, Xia Mo, was able to move unhindered throughout my life. Yet I’m actually going to die because of a young brat at the devil-foundation realm today. Ridiculous, how utterly ridiculous!” Old Xia Devil King roared loudly at the sky. He was unwilling to, his heart was filled with an extreme reluctance.
He turned with difficulty and stared at Qin Wentian. This young man stood in the air and was coldly staring at him.
“You who came from the immortal realms. Since you are so brazen on the Myriad Devil Islands, you would surely die extremely miserably in the future.” The Old Xia Devil King venomously cursed.
“Old Xia Devil King, you are saying that I’m brazen? Could it be that you still don’t understand how you died? It’s precisely because you have no one in your eyes! Tell me, who is the brazen one? At the banquet you acted so imperiously, using your identity as an old friend of the Fallen Devil Emperor to influence his decision. The you at that time, have you ever thought that today would come? You sent people to hunt me down, thinking that I was merely a junior who can be killed anytime as long as you willed it. The you back then, did you ever think that this would happen today?” Qin Wentian’s eyes were like ice.
“Hahaha, you are just a junior, an ant in my eyes. Do you think you have the qualifications to lecture me?” Old Xia Devil King laughed loudly.
“Someone who is going to die still wants to talk big?” A look of pity flashed in the eyes of Qin Wentian. “In the immortal realms, there are even immortal emperors who want to kill me. You, a devil king who can only depend on the prestige of others actually dares to act so brazen? Simply ridiculous. You must have offended plenty of people in the past. Once you die, I’m afraid your clan members wouldn’t have another day of peace. They would all pay for the deeds you have done. Could it be that you feel no sadness nor regrets?”
The Old Xia Devil King trembled and coughed out another mouthful of blood, on the verge of death. He inclined his head and stared at the two devil emperors who were battling as he howled, “I’M NOT WILLING!”
After that, he slammed a palm onto his own head, commiting suicide. As Xia Mo, even in death, he had to face it directly. He didn’t want his body to be shattered from the attacks of others.
His roar of reluctance drifted through the heavens and earth, causing chills in the hearts of everyone. This young man who rejected the reward was too terrifying, coming back to kill the Old Xia Devil King because of a slight injustice. Nobody knew what methods he used, he actually managed to invite a devil emperor to come back here with him.
“OLD XIA!” In the air, the roar of the Fallen Devil Emperor echoed out. A thunderous boom rang out as a bright light pierced through the sky. After that, the spectators saw both the devil emperors descending down from the sky.
The Fallen Devil Emperor flew to the body of Old Xia and hugged his corpse, feeling extremely complicated in his heart.
An old friend of so many years has just died like that. In addition, his death was brought about by his subordinates. But even so, could he blame them? He knew that his subordinates were thinking of the big picture, and thinking for him.
“Well done.” The Fallen Devil Emperor turned his gaze to Qin Wentian.
“Senior must be joking. If I wasn’t forced to an extreme, I wouldn’t have chosen to walk on this path. The decision of the Old Xia Devil King back then was extremely important to junior. Also, he sent someone to hunt me down. Maybe, my life in senior’s eyes isn’t worthy of a single mention but even minor characters have a pride of their own. I naturally would want to seek revenge.” Qin Wentian calmly replied. The eyes of the Fallen Devil Emperor turned sharp but he knew that Qin Wentian spoke the truth.
From his perspective, Qin Wentian was insignificant. But since Qin Wentian was almost hunted down, he naturally would want revenge. And now, he found the method of obtaining revenge, and here he came.
The Old Xia Devil King died because he underestimated Qin Wentian’s methods and resolve.
“I think you are here today not only just to kill my old friend, right? What else do you want?” The eyes of the Fallen Devil Emperor were like sharp swords, directly staring into the eyes of Qin Wentian.
“Where is Huang Shatian?” Qin Wentian asked.
“Some news from some devil islands was received, he set off to find those he wanted to find.” The Fallen Devil Emperor calmly replied, his words caused Qin Wentian to stiffen as his expression turned incomparably unsightly.
If the people Huang Shatian found were those belonging to Qin Wentian’s side, those people would die for sure. There was no one who could stand against Huang Shatian, considering the power of his supreme treasure which he displayed during the recent battle against Qin Wentian. That kind of power even caused Qin Wentian to have chills in his heart, it was definitely an inheritance treasure of the Nine-Emperors Immortal Empire. Most probably, out of all the immortal-foundation experts on his side, only Qin Wentian alone had powerful enough treasures to contend against Huang Shatian.
“For the people which Huang Shatian wished to find, I hope that in the future, your Majesty would give me all the info once you receive them from your sources.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“Are you giving me a command?” The Fallen Devil Emperor coldly laughed.
“I don’t dare to, this is a just a humble request from junior.” Qin Wentian politely spoke.
“What if I disagree?” The eyes of the Fallen Devil Emperor turned cold.
“In that case, my army will be stationed here.” The Vast Sky Devil Emperor calmly added. Earlier when they fought, he possessed the advantage. His strength was higher than the Fallen Devil Emperor. But if he wanted to kill the Fallen Devil Emperor, he was still not strong enough to do so.
If the Fallen Devil Emperor went all out, there was no problem for him to flee. If he pushed him so far, his own Vast Sky Devil Region might be in danger. Hence, he wouldn’t promise Qin Wentian to kill the Fallen Devil Emperor.
He has already said that he came here to be the support for Qin Wentian.
As to how things would be done, that would have to depend on Qin Wentian’s own capabilities.
“Do what you will.” The Fallen Devil Emperor took Old Xia’s corpse with him as he walked into his emperor palace. The devil kings behind him naturally followed after. The eyes of the Vast Sky Devil Emperor flashed, he turned to Qin Wentian and smiled, “Seems like the death of that devil king has thoroughly enraged the Fallen Devil Emperor. Things won’t be so easily settled now.”
Qin Wentian frowned. It wasn’t an easy task to get a devil emperor to compromise.
“Senior Fallen Devil Emperor, no matter you agree to this or not, let me make this clear first. If there are any devil kings in the Fallen Devil Region who dares to disseminate news to Huang Shatian again in the future, I will kill that devil king for sure.” Qin Wentian’s cold words rang out in the air. Even if the Fallen Devil Emperor didn’t give him news, he wouldn’t allow the other devil kings of the islands in this region to give any news to Huang Shatian.
The Fallen Devil Emperor didn’t bother with Qin Wentian. The Vast Sky Devil Emperor merely smiled, “Station our troops here.”
“Yes.” All the experts here nodded and flew to the ground, stationing the army right at the side of the Fallen Emperor Palace. The eyes of the crowd all gleamed, seems like there would soon be frequent conflicts between the armies led by the two devil emperors!
