Ancient Godly Monarch - Chapter 1538 - Nine World Palaces, One Realm
Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed, as he stared with bewilderment at the crystal ball.
The people of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms can communicate and relay messages through this crystal ball?
Beiming Youhuang’s beautiful eyes also flashed. Qin Wentian transmitted his voice to her, “Youhuang, don’t be impulsive. This Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms is very strange. Our looks might have been imprinted into the crystal already. Also, from their attitudes, it seems like they are very sure we wouldn’t act against them. There should be some rules, let’s make things clear first.”
The Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms is the Upper World, the strongest layer out of the thirty-three heavens. They were completely ignorant of things here and couldn’t help but to be more cautious.
Jialan Mingyue inclined her head and stared at the two of them, her eyes contained a trace of wariness, as well as cold disdain. Although the possibility of these two daring to act against her was very small, but if she encountered someone crazy, she might very well die in their hands. At that time, there would be no meaning even if her father avenged her.
Upon seeing Beiming Youhuang and Qin Wentian remaining silent. She contemplated a little and continued, “As unaffiliated cultivators, you guys actually appeared in my Windthunder City and one of you is even at the immortal emperor realm. How can I be careless? I’m bringing you two back for an investigation. If you two are innocent, nothing will happen to you.”
“Miss…” One of Jialan Mingyue’s protected transmitted her voice, “For immortal emperors, even if they are unaffiliated cultivators, we do not have the capabilities to offend them.”
Jialan Mingyue’s protectors weren’t like Beiming Youhuang and Qin Wentian, ignorant of everything. Immortal emperors are ultimately immortal emperors, they had extraordinary strength and status. By using this method to threaten an immortal emperor, although Jialan Mingyue’s words seemed polite, in truth, this was clearly inappropriate. Jialan Mingyue didn’t have this authority. An immortal emperor could totally disregard a City Lord like her.
But Jialan Mingyue couldn’t swallow this breath of resentment. It was fine if they both merely rejected her. But the woman actually showed killing intent? In that case, it was clear she would have no face if she let things go like that. It would be best if she could delay them until her father arrived. At that time, everything would be settled then.
“Fine. I’ll go with you.” Beiming Youhuang spoke in a light tone but her expression was as cold as ever. If this place was the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms, why would she need to suffer like this? Just like what Qin Wentian said, they were completely ignorant of things here in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. It would be best to get things clear first before making a decision.
This time, the people here were all astonished. This immortal emperor was actually so easy to talk to? Jialan Mingyue also started.
Jialan Mingyue’s lips curled up. “In that case, come to my City Lord manor first. I’ll naturally not mistreat the two of you.”
“Youhuang, I feel that this woman is delaying on purpose. Do you really want to go?” Qin Wentian transmitted his voice to Beiming Youhuang.
“If there’s danger, I will directly take her hostage.” Beiming Youhuang replied.
Qin Wentian nodded and didn’t continue to persuade her. The two of them then followed Jialan Mingyue, while observing the areas in the city. This city was extremely prosperous, although a character like Jialan Mingyue was the City Lord, this city could be compared to a main city of their Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. Also there was a dazzling lineup of treasure transaction pavilions all around.
However, when they arrived at the City Lord manor, they could sense a fearsome aura gushing forth. A group of experts that was a regiment of an immortal army, walked out.
Beiming Youhuang’s countenance changed. She transmitted her voice to Qin Wentian, “There are three immortal emperors. One of them is a mid-stage immortal emperor and two other initial-stage immortal emperors. The rest are immortal kings.”
A bright light flashed through Qin Wentian’s eyes. The Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms are actually as powerful as what the crazy old freak has said? There were countless people here who could trample them to death.
Before this, he thought that the crazy old freak was just trying to scare him. Even in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, an immortal emperor can also be considered a character strong enough to rule over an area. Who would have thought that they would encounter such a situation the moment they arrived here?
In truth, his guess wasn’t wrong. Although they met three immortal emperors when they arrived, in truth, that mid-stage immortal emperor was already a ruler of a vast area. He even had many cities under him and naturally, also numerous powerful experts following him.
This mid-stage immortal emperor was none other than Jialan Mingyue’s father. He only came here through a teleportation array after receiving the news that Jialan Mingyue might be in danger. One could say that Beiming Youhuang and Qin Wentian have nicely delivered themselves up to the doorstep.
“We pay our respects to the Monarch.” The people around Jialan Mingyue bowed.
The Jialan Monarch surveyed Beiming Youhuang and Qin Wentian. He didn’t give a damn about Qin Wentian who was merely at the immortal-foundation level. But as for Beiming Youhuang, her beauty actually caused a bright glow to flicker in his eyes.
“Mingyue, what’s going on?” The Jialan Monarch asked.
“Father, the two of them are unaffiliated cultivators. I wanted to investigate them to see if they are bandits or not.” Jialan Mingyue replied but she silently transmitted her voice over, “Father, these two don’t seem to know everything. I told them to follow me and they actually agreed. Also, this woman earlier displayed killing intent towards me.”
“Senior, me and my senior sister just arrived here. We are definitely not bandits.” Qin Wentian spoke. At the same time he spoke, he and Beiming Youhuang were both prepared to act at any instant. As long as something felt wrong, they would instantly capture Jialan Mingyue.
“Senior sister? This means that you guys are not unaffiliated cultivators but have a sect?” Jialan Mingyue asked.
“Our master is somebody that lives in seclusion. The two of us has always been cultivating in the wilderness and have no sect to speak of. It’s just that we might have accidentally offended Miss earlier after exiting the mountains. Please forgive us.” Qin Wentian spoke.
“I wonder which supreme expert is your master?” Jialan Monarch stared at Beiming Youhuang as he asked. If Qin Wentian’s words were real, the master of an immortal emperor definitely wouldn’t be simple.
“Master doesn’t wish for his name to be revealed.” Qin Wentian bowed apologetically.
“Oh, so it’s just a misunderstanding. My daughter was frightened by the behavior of you two earlier. In addition, recently around the region governed by the Lifire World Palace, there were many bandits that appeared, plundering the area. Hence, the Lifire Empyrean gave orders to strictly step up on the checks. If the two of you don’t mind, why don’t you temporarily stay at my residence as guests?” The Jialan Monarch spoke.
“Lifire World Palace?” Qin Wentian noted down this name.
Beiming Youhuang furrowed her brows. But Qin Wentian actually replied, “Since senior has issued the invitation, how would we not comply with it? Senior sister, let’s head over to senior’s residence.”
Beiming Youhuang glanced at him only to hear Qin Wentian transmitting his voice, “Youhuang, being beautiful is always an advantage. This Jialan Monarch has a different look in his eyes when he looks at you. He definitely wouldn’t do anything towards you. It’s better that we adopt the soft approach.”
When she heard Qin Wentian’s words, Beiming Youhuang shot him a cold glance. However, she knew that Qin Wentian also had no choice but to do this. They were completely unfamiliar with the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms and the strength of the Jialan Monarch’s group clearly exceeded them. Could they say no? Even if they wanted to flee, they might not be able to. They might as well comply with the Jialan Monarch first.
“This place is my daughter’s manor, there’s a teleportation array leading to my Jialan Emperor Palace. Please.” The Jialan Monarch was exceedingly polite but his gaze was fixed only on Beiming Youhuang. He couldn’t care less about Qin Wentian.
Jialan Mingyue’s mouth twitched. How could she not understand what sort of person her father was. But as long as he could help her vent her emotions, it was enough.
“Father, it’s been some time since I visited your palace. I will accompany you.” Jialan Mingyue spoke.
“Alright, let’s go back together.” The Jialan Monarch nodded. The group of them then headed towards the teleportation array. Jialan Mingyue came to Qin Wentian’s side and asked, “Why is there such a huge difference between your cultivation base and your senior sister?”
“Ah I feel regret when I speak of this. My talent is far inferior to hers.” Qin Wentian bitterly smiled and shook his head.
“Oh? Your senior sister not only has high talent, she is extremely beautiful as well. Are you fond of her?” Jialan Mingyue laughed, clearly, the atmosphere now was no longer as tense as earlier. But this actually caused Qin Wentian to start. The attitudes of people here actually could shift so quickly.
“How can I be worthy of my senior sister?” Qin Wentian smiled. He then asked, “Miss Jialan, the two of us just arrived here and have completely no idea regarding the rules here. Please pardon us if we offended you earlier. Also, what is the Lifire Palace?”
Jialan Mingyue stared at Qin Wentian in astonishment. This fellow was really good-looking, the light in his eyes was extremely mesmerizing from a certain perspective.
Because of his unique astral souls, the Qin Wentian now, was more attractive than he was before.
“You really have no idea?” Jialan Mingyue asked.
“Mhm.” Qin Wentian nodded.
“This place is the Lifelong Realm, the Lifelong Realmlord is the ruler of this realm and the territories here can be classified into nine world palaces. The Lifire Palace is one of the nine world palaces and is led by the Lifire Empyrean. My father is one of the nine monarchs under the Lifire Empyrean and is responsible for governing this region. The Windthunder City where we met, is naturally one of the cities under my father’s control.” Jialan Mingyue smiled.
“Lifelong Realm!” Qin Wentian’s eyes gleamed with sharpness. This name…it involuntarily cause him to recall the Heavenly Talisman Realm.
The Lifelong Realm, the Lifelong Realmlord, this boundlessly vast region was just part of it.
“Are the cultivation bases of the nine monarchs same as your father? In that case, wouldn’t the nine world palace lords be peak-stage immortal emperors?” Qin Wentian pretended to be shocked.
“You have underestimated the palace lords and monarchs. Usually, for the nine monarchs, their cultivation bases would be at the peak-stage of the immortal emperor realm or they would be extraordinary mid-stage emperors. As for the nine palace lords, their cultivation is naturally a step higher, at the Empyrean Realm. They might also be extraordinary peak-stage emperors.” Jialan Mingyue coldly smiled. Qin Wentian’s heart trembled. No wonder this Jialan Mingyue didn’t feel fear despite discovering Beiming Youhuang was an immortal emperor.
If things were like what Jialan Mingyue explained, the power led by a monarch would be equivalent to a peak power in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. Under an Empyrean, there are a total of nine monarchs which are also equal to nine peak powers. The territories they governed are all exceedingly vast. This Windthunder City was merely a city the Jialan Monarch gave his daughter to play with.
As for the Empyreans mentioned by Jialan Mingyue, this made Qin Wentian feel that she was referring to someone with the cultivation at the ancient-emperor realm.
There are a total of nine empyreans, and even if the people around them are ignored, there are still a total of 81 monarchs under them. This force was sufficient to sweep through the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms unchallenged.
“What about the bandits?” Qin Wentian calmed himself down and asked.
“Under the Longlife Realmlord, there are nine world palaces led by the nine empyreans, with a total of 81 monarchs under them. They naturally were the ones controlling the cultivation resources in this realm. There are some brazen fellows who dared to rob and plunder the resources. These people are the bandits I was referring to, they are all hunted down on sight.” Jialan Mingyue cast a deep glance filled with hidden meaning at Qin Wentian. This caused Qin Wentian to sigh in relief silently. Earlier, this Jialan Mingyue actually gave them such huge hats to wear.
