Chapter 1855: Qin Zhong, Luoshen Mu
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
Heaven Region, Qin Clan
In a majestic ancient hall that extended so high its top touches the clouds, a figure with a violet-golden crown on his head sat there. He was dressed in luxurious robes, seemingly the embodiment of heaven’s might.
If Qin Wentian was here, he would definitely recognize this man. This man has frequently appeared in the memories his father left behind for him.
Qin Zheng, the current controller of the Qin Clan, he was the father of Heaven’s Son, Qin Dangtian.
He stood on the stone steps with his arms behind his back. Just simply standing there, he seemed like the king of heaven and earth.
At this moment, a figure suddenly appeared below the stone step. This figure also had a transcendent aura and seemed one with the heavens. This man was one of the heavenly deities of the Qin Clan.
“Clan leader, you are looking for me?” This heavenly deity was named Qin Zhong, he has already entered the heavenly deity realm for many years but before Qin Zheng, he still maintained civility and the respect he ought to have, despite the fact that he was Qin Zheng’s elder.
“Uncle Zhong, I have a matter which I might need to trouble you to make a trip out.” Qin Zheng spoke. Qin Zhong was a clan uncle of his.
“Sure.” Qin Zhong nodded, not asking what the matter was.
“I would originally have let Dangtian head out for this matter but after his defeat at the Heavenly Dao Sacred Academy, Dangtian seemed to have encountered some setbacks, he has not exited his closed-door seclusion after that incident despite a hundred years having passed. Hence, I can only trouble Uncle Zhong to do this.” Qin Zhang calmly spoke. Qin Zhong casually nodded, “Clan leader, please feel free to command me.”
“Mhm.” Qin Zheng nodded. “The Luoshen Clan sent a message saying that Qin Yuanfeng’s son is currently in the Luoshen Clan. I want you to go to the Luoshen Clan and bring him over to our clan.”
Qin Zhong’s eyes flashed as he asked curiously, “Clan leader, the Luoshen Clan actually sent such news to our Qin Clan?”
“Right now, the Luoshen Clan is besieged by internal warfare. Luoshen Mu wished to seize authority and his current strength is already sufficient to fight equally against Luoshen Chuan. It’s just that he still lacks the support of a few old fellows. Hence, he needs an opportunity. After controlling the Luoshen Clan, he wants to settle all grudges between our clans. Qin Zheng calmly spoke.
“So when I head over to the Luoshen Clan, I only need to state that I’m here acting on behalf of the Qin Clan to deal with the son of a traitor and Luoshen Mu will cooperate?” Qin Zhong asked.
“As long as he can restrain Luoshen Chuan, it will be enough. The few old fellows in the Luoshen Clan are long already swords that have lost their sharpness, they no longer have the strength to fight against our Qin Clan. If Luoshen Chuan forcibly intervened, his time reigning over the Luoshen Clan will come to an end soon.” Qin Zheng laughed, as though he had already foreseen everything.
“Alright, I’ll head out now.” Qin Zhong nodded.
“Try your best to do this as fast as possible. Use the fastest method to travel there.” Qin Zheng spoke. Qin Zhong nodded as he turned to depart. There might be complications if things dragged out, he naturally had no objections to travel there as quickly as possible. Things would be troublesome if Qin Wentian left the Luoshen Clan.
If Qin Yuanfeng was really still alive, he would surely appear if they captured Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian, who was in the Luoshen Clan, had no idea what just happened in the Heaven Region. He also didn’t expect that someone in the Luoshen Clan would actually send a message to the Qin Clan, revealing his whereabouts.
After all, the Luoshen Clan and Qin Clan had grudges that divided them since a very long time ago and viewed each other as mortal enemies.
The Qin Wentian now came to a large public square on the Luoshen Mountain. Not only was he here, the experts from the various factions of the Luoshen Clan had also arrived, many people were gathered here. Those who came were all characters with some status in the clan and at this moment, Qin Wentian could clearly sense the dispute within the Luoshen Clan. These weaker factions that gathered here at the public square now were divided into two camps. One of the camps had Luoshen Chuan, the clan leader of the Luoshen Clan leading it. As for the other camp, another heavenly deity exuding immense might could be seen there. This person was the one in-charge and he was none other than Luoshen Mu.
Behind Luoshen Mu, experts were as many as the clouds. The people in his camp was even more than those in Luoshen Chuan’s camp. Not only that, Qin Wentian also saw the two world overlords who went into the world of reincarnation. His eyes flashed with coldness when he saw them. These two betrayed Lei`er in the world of reincarnation and it was precisely because of this matter that caused the conflict between these two largest factions of the Luoshen Clan to escalate to this degree within the last one hundred years.
In addition, the experts of each camp radiated a hostile air to each other. No one was bothering to mask it.
Luoshen Mu’s gaze immediately locked on to Qin Wentian. After he was seated, he asked Qin Wentian, “So, you are Qianxue’s son? You’ve grown so big in just the blink of an eye and have even cultivated to such a high realm, allowing you to easily suppress hegemonic-level world overlords. I still remember when Qianxue was growing up in the clan, she was truly extremely outstanding. Sadly, she picked a wrong path.”
Luoshen Mu’s voice contained no anger at all, it was as though he was speaking to a junior of the clan, and not making things difficult deliberately for Qin Wentian. As expected of a heavenly deity, he was proficient in keeping his state of heart calm, not allowing his emotions to run unchecked.
“Junior Qin Wentian pays my respects to senior. However, I don’t agree with senior’s views. From what I know, my mother has never walked on a wrong path before. Senior might feel the path she picked was wrong, but in reality, it didn’t represent that the path she picked was really wrong.” Qin Wentian calmly replied in a manner neither servile nor overbearing.
“There is some logic in your words.” Luoshen Mu nodded his head lightly. However, many experts beside him had unfriendly looks in their eyes when they stared at Qin Wentian. This was especially so for those experts who were driven away by his show of force when he met with his uncle Luoshen Yu. They knew exactly how brazen Qin Wentian was. Qin Wentian simply didn’t place anyone in the Luoshen Clan in his eyes.
“However, I heard that earlier when you came here, you had some conflict with the experts of the Luoshen Clan? You said that you merely came here to see your uncle and younger sister and have no connections to the Luoshen Clan. Is this correct?” Luoshen Mu asked.
“That’s true.” Qin Wentian nodded.
“Oh, these words cannot be considered correct. For the matters in the past, I believe you should know of some as well, right? Our Luoshen Clan had many clashes against the Qin Clan due to the marriage between your parents. And now, for many of those in the junior generations, their elders and parents all died because of that incident. Despite so, Qianxue abandoned everything and left alone without a care in the world. Since you are her son, do you really feel that you have no connection with the Luoshen Clan?” Luoshen Mu calmly asked, his voice contained no emotion at all.
“Junior wishes to ask senior, if senior’s children had a conflict with some other major powers and was suppressed, would the Luoshen Clan intervene?” Qin Wentian asked.
Luoshen Mu fell silent for a few moments, instantly understand the point Qin Wentian wanted to make. He calmly smiled, “Naturally.”
“If the Luoshen Clan sustained losses from that, would the Luoshen Clan blame senior’s children for everything that happened?” Qin Wentian calmly continued. “Refusing to think of ideas to deal with one’s mortal enemy yet shifting the blame to one’s clansmen, if this is the way the Luoshen Clan does things, I’m afraid that they would truly become the greatest joke in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. If news about this were to leak out, wouldn’t the Luoshen Clan be sneered at and ridiculed by everyone in the world?”
“IMPUDENT!” Someone roared.
“Might I ask which of my earlier sentences is impudent?” Qin Wentian stared at the person who roared as he calmly asked.
Luoshen Mu waved his hands and smiled at Qin Wentian, “Your words are not illogical. However, the marriage of your parents was something the Luoshen Clan has forbidden from the start. Your mother chose to ignore the clan’s wishes and went ahead to do it, resulting in all these consequences. This example is different from what you had listed earlier.”
“Regardless of right or wrong, if the Luoshen Clan cannot even protect their clan members and sought to transfer blame to them instead, is there even a need for the Luoshen Clan to continue existing?” Qin Wentian coldly mocked. “If senior is so mindful about what is correct or wrong, in that case, back in the world of reincarnation, there are two world overlords from the Luoshen Clan who betrayed their own clan member, going all out to act against Luoshen Lei, wanting to deliver her into the hands of their mortal enemies. Such shameless and despicable behavior, why are those two still in the crowd? Why are they not expelled from the Luoshen Clan yet?”
The eyes of two world overlords gleamed with extreme coldness when they saw Qin Wentian directing the spear head at them.
“I didn’t expect Qin Yuanfeng’s son to be such a sharp-tongue brat.” An old man mocked.
“Senior wished to debate, so I naturally replied with logic. Now that your side cannot win the argument, are you going to become angry due to embarrassment and resort to insulting me? Such deplorable behavior…” Qin Wentian shook his head, not masking his sarcasm at all.
“Your words are correct.” Luoshen Mu laughed. “In the fight you had earlier, you crushed an expert from the Luoshen Clan with a single sword strike. What a glorious victory. Your talent truly doesn’t lose out to your father’s talent back then. Also, there’s nothing wrong with what you said. In anycase, it is hard to determine who is correct just from logic and it’s not important who is right or wrong. What is important is that if the Luoshen Clan cannot even protect their clansmen when their clansmen suffered insults and humiliation, in that case, what is the point of the Luoshen Clan existing? Hence, for the insults and humiliation you gave to the Luoshen Clan’s experts earlier, shouldn’t you give an answer for that?”
“Oh? If that’s the case, those who insulted my father and my elder brother earlier, shouldn’t they give an answer for that as well?” Luoshen Lei coldly spoke. Luoshen Chuan, who was the clan leader, remained silent from the start until now. He wanted to see how Qin Wentian would respond.
“Naturally they should. Those who insulted Yu`er earlier, step out now and slap yourselves for every insulting sentence you spoke to humiliate him.” Luoshen Mu’s voice suddenly turned cold and imposing. The earlier experts all froze, many of them were world overlords. Did Luoshen Mu want them to slap themselves in public?
Luoshen Chuan’s eyes narrowed, this Luoshen Mu…what a ruthless method. Was he preparing something even more terrifying hidden in his reserve?
“Did you not hear my words?” Luoshen Mu’s voice turned even colder. The world overlords who insulted Luoshen Yu walked out. Their expressions were extremely ugly but they understood Luoshen Mu did so because he wanted to deal with Qin Wentian. Hence, they gritted their teeth and followed his orders, slapping themselves in public.
Qin Wentian’s expression turned glacial when he saw this scene. He naturally understood that Luoshen Mu was looking for an excuse to act against him.
Luoshen Mu calmly watched as the world overlords slapped themselves. After that, he turned his gaze back to Qin Wentian, “You’ve already said it yourself that you came here to visit your uncle and have no connection with the Luoshen Clan. Now, they have already paid a price for their actions, what about you then? You insulted the Luoshen Clan’s people and even held a sword to one of their throats, even drawing blood. What price should you pay for this act?”
“Since someone dared to insult me and my uncle, I naturally would retaliate. If senior wishes to let those in the junior generations deal with me, I have nothing to say and will accept this with open arms.” Qin Wentian calmly smiled. If a heavenly deity wanted to act against him, his grandpa was the clan leader of the Luoshen Clan, Luoshen Chuan would surely defend him.
“I naturally won’t personally act.” Luoshen Mu spoke.
Qin Wentian’s smile grew radiant. “Since this is the case, everyone who wishes to seek revenge for what happened earlier, feel free to attack me. If you all can kill me, I will simply admit that I’m inferior. However, if those acting against me are killed by me instead, don’t blame me then.”
“Arrogant.” The experts beside Luoshen Mu all had enraged looks on their faces. The arrogance of Qin Yuanfeng’s son wasn’t at an ordinary level. He completely had no one in his eyes, disregarding the experts of the Luoshen Clan!
