Chapter 1859: Divine Might
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The mental energy of a heavenly deity can no longer be described as immortal sense. It was divine sense instead. Under the scanning of divine sense, there was simply no way Qin Wentian could escape. Although he could travel a million miles with a single ‘blink,’ but once divine sense locked on to him, a formless energy would latch on to him, revealing his location every time.
“You won’t be able to flee.” Qin Zhong’s voice rang out in Qin Wentian’s mind, it was like even Qin Zhong’s image directly appeared inside his mind.
Qin Wentian ignored the voice in his mind. He continued traveling at great speed, stepping into the void again and again to extend the distance between them. Qin Zhong stepped out. With each step he took, he seemed to traverse the distance equal to a particle world. Although his motion seemed slow, the distance he moved was simply unfathomable to ordinary people.
“Your usage of the dao of space isn’t bad, allowing you to travel freely through the void. Sadly, under divine sense, regardless of reality or illusion, you won’t be able to hide your presence. Vile spawn, come back with me to the Qin Clan, don’t invite suffering on yourself.” Qin Zhong continued to pursue, as he spoke in an unhurried manner as though he wasn’t in a rush to capture Qin Wentian. To him, Qin Wentian’s capture was something already set in stone. It was best to leave this area first in case Luoshen Chuan wanted to interfere. After all, this was something Qin Zheng ordered him to do, he had to perform well. If Luoshen Chuan saw that he captured his grandson, he might be so angered that he would ignore everything and attack and in order to obstruct him.
Over at the Luoshen Clan’s side, Luoshen Chuan also didn’t expect Qin Wentian to be so decisive, leaving the moment he said he would leave. He clenched his fists tightly, wanting to chase after however, he saw an old man appearing beside him. That old man stared at him and shook his head lightly.
Luoshen Chuan’s expression contorted as he stared at that old man. The calmness on his face earlier was long gone, his expression turned extremely unsightly.
Did he really have to see his grandson being brought away by the Qin Clan? This was his grandson, the son of Qianxue! If Qin Wentian was really brought away by the Qin Clan and if Qianxue was still alive and knew that Qin Wentian was taken away in his presence, she would truly hate him, this father of hers, right?
“Grandpa!” Luoshen Lei called out, she felt agony, helplessness and pain in her heart. Right now, only her grandpa could save her elder brother.
Luoshen Chuan drew in a deep breath, he stared at the satisfied smile in Luoshen Mu’s eyes as he sighed in his heart. He was still the clan leader, but this was not because he was obsessed over power. It was rather because as a descendant of the Luoshen Clan, he had a responsibility. But now, it seemed that the Luoshen Clan no longer needs him. Since this is the case, rather than exhausting the strength of both Luoshen factions through internal warfare, why should he not simply give it up?
Lifting his foot, Luoshen Chuan was about to leave. But at this moment, Luoshen Mu’s figure flashed and blocked him. “Elder brother, you are the clan leader of our Luoshen Clan and your actions would represent all of us. If you interfere in the internal matters of the Qin Clan, you would implicate the entire Luoshen Clan in this. I hope elder brother can give more considerations about the Luosheen Clan.”
“Since you want this position so much, I shall give it to you. From now onwards, I’m no longer the clan leader of the Luoshen Clan.” Luoshen Chuan’s voice rang out within the Luoshen Clan. Behind him, his supporters stared at him in shock. They all called out, “Clan leader!”
Luoshen Chuan turned his head and stared at them, “In the future, work hard for the Luoshen Clan. I still stand by what I said earlier. If I cannot even protect my kin, how can I protect the entire Luoshen Clan? From today onwards, I, Luoshen Chuan, am no longer the clan leader of the Luoshen Clan.”
The people behind him all felt misery in their hearts. They supported Luoshen Chuan because Luoshen Chuan was more ‘human.’ When compared to him, Luoshen Mu was full of schemes, hence they didn’t really like Luoshen Mu.
A few old fellows appeared. They stared at Luoshen Chuan, some of them sighed, some of them were calm. On Luoshen Mu’s face, a victorious smile could be seen. He said before that Luoshen Lie’s death had value to it. Everything was like how he planned out. Given Luoshen Chuan’s personality, Luoshen Mu was sure that he would do this.
“Since you want to give up on the position of clan leader, head to the sacrificial shrine for our ancestors and perform the abdication ceremony, allowing the new clan leader to take over.” An old man spoke.
Luoshen Chuan’s expression changed. “I will do that after I return.”
“Impossible.” Upon seeing that Luoshen Chuan wants to leave, the old man blocked his way. “As long as you have not performed the abdication ceremony, you are still considered the clan leader of Luoshen Clan and your actions would represent the entire clan’s attitude.”
They were all Luoshen Mu’s supporters, their thinking was the same as Luoshen Mu, wanting to resolve their grudge with the Qin Clan. They naturally wouldn’t allow Luoshen Chuan to continue antagonizing the Qin Clan and would stop him here at all costs, not letting him act against Qin Zhong. If a heavenly deity from the Qin was injured by Luoshen Chuan, the grudge between the two clans would undoubtedly be even deeper.
They spoke about the abdication ceremony but in truth, they merely wanted to delay time, they didn’t want Luoshen Chuan to interfere with Qin Zhong capturing Qin Wentian.
“Why must you guys force me to the edge?” Luoshen Chuan spoke with anger. His aura erupted forth as a fearsome heavenly might engulfed the area. The few old fellows all unleashed their own auras to resist it. Luoshen Mu stared at Luoshen Chuan, “Luoshen Chuan, you actually want to act against the elders? Don’t forget, this place is the Luoshen Mountain.”
“Luoshen Chuan.” The old fellows who had supported Luoshen Chuan all had disappointment on their faces as they shook their heads. If Luoshen Chuan really acted now, most probably, not only would he not be able to continue holding on to the position of the clan leader, he would even become a sinner of the Luoshen Clan. They naturally didn’t want to see this.
“The etiquette must not be abolished.” The old man earlier had a determined look on his face, wanting to make Luoshen Chuan stay here.
“Father!” Luoshen Yu sighed in his heart. He didn’t expect that this would happen today.
“Grandpa…” Luoshen Lei’s heart was filled with pain. She icily stared at Luoshen Mu. Everything has happened according to his wishes.
“Sure.” Luoshen Chuan spoke. After that, he moved towards the ancestral shrine of the clan. Since the other party wanted to delay him no matter the cost, he knew he wouldn’t be able to leave here now no matter what he did.
“Father!” Luoshen Lei glanced at Luoshen Yu when she saw this. Luoshen Yu inclined his head and stared up in the air while sighing silently in his heart. After giving up the position as the clan leader, he knew that it was impossible for his father and the rest of them to continue staying in the Luoshen Clan. Also, given his father’s personality, his father would surely act in the same manner as he did back then, rushing into the Qin Clan.
What’s regrettable was that they had no power to change anything, he felt endless sorrow in his heart.
A majority of people in the Luoshen Clan were sighing, they didn’t expect that their Luoshen Clan actually ended in such a state today. Although Luoshen Mu had finally become the winner, but in the perspective of the entire Luoshen Clan, can it really be considered a victory? Most probably from now on, the strength of the Luoshen Clan as a whole would continue to weaken.
“Elder brother, please be safe.” Luoshen Lei’s heart prayed for Qin Wentian’s safety but she knew that her prayer would be useless. Because this time around, her elder brother’s opponent was a heavenly deity.
A heavenly deity of the Qin Clan wants to capture him, how can he escape?
At this moment, Qin Wentian has already left the boundary of the Luoshen Mountain, and had even exited Luo City. He was rapidly flying through space but Qin Zhong’s divine sense still locked on to him. Even though Qin Wentian constantly entered and exited the void, he had no way to evade Qin Zhong’s divine sense’s boundary.
Once Qin Zhong confirmed that Luoshen Chuan wouldn’t pursue him, a coldness flashed in his eyes as he spoke, “Qin Wentian, in the past I acted against your father and now, I’m about to capture you. There are all sorts of wondrous things in the world, it feels just like samsara. Just give up and follow me back to the Qin Clan.”
As the sound of his voice faded, a wave of heavenly might enveloped the area Qin Wentian was in. The winds and clouds changed, as a golden storm manifested, revolving wildly in the sky. The heavenly might permeated the atmosphere and at this moment, countless people below stared up in the sky with great waves of shock in their hearts. What was going on?
The sky was trembling and heavenly might could be felt everywhere.
A deity stood in the air, bathing in golden light. Countless people below stared up in awe as they bowed their heads, there were even some who prostrated themselves in worship. They actually saw a god and could sense the divine might radiating from him.
To countless people, a heavenly deity was a supreme existence that existed at the pinnacle of things. They were able to peer down imperiously at the multitude of living things below them.
They held deities in awe, yet heavenly deities cared nothing for them, the other lifeforms were beneath their notice, and were as insignificant as ants.
Qin Zhong stood imposingly in the air, an ancient Xuanhuang bell appeared behind him. This bell was like an ancient bell of the heavenly dao. It was an incarnation of the dao, manifested by the surroundings but it also seemed to be Qin Zhong’s astral soul.
“If you don’t give up, I can only act personally then.” Qin Zhong calmly spoke. The ancient bell radiated boundless light as chimes filled the air. In this entire space, a tribulation formed from heavenly dao appeared, cleaving the skies apart. Many experts who were prostrating themselves on the ground all directly coughed out blood as they died. Their eyes were wide-open in death, dying with regrets. Why would a deity want to kill them?
Qin Zhong didn’t have any wish to kill them, it was just that in his eyes, they were nothing at all, no difference from insects. The person he wanted to deal with was Qin Wentian.
The terrifying tribulation force spread far and wide, flooding the void completely. Qin Wentian was forced out from the void. He had no choice but to pull the demon sword out. His dao was contained within his sword and at this moment, a bright beam of light shot out, aiming for that blast of tribulation force. A terrifying destructive energy devastated the surroundings as explosions occurred from the impact.
Qin Wentian’s figure appeared. When he saw so many innocents here dying, an extreme coldness flashed in his eyes. When he stared at Qin Zhong, his eyes revealed an incomparably intense killing intent.
So this is a heavenly deity? The people of the world prostrated themselves and worshiped him yet he didn’t care a whit about their lives. When the tribulation force formed from his heavenly might descent, a majority of the people here had all died.
“You still want me to make a move?” Qin Zhong calmly asked. Qin Wentian’s eyes were icy to the extreme. His killing intent surged forth as he wielded the demon sword. For the enemies who once acted against his father, Qin Zhong was also a part of it.
“You actually dare to radiate your battle intent?” Qin Zhong had a disdainful smile on his face. An ant trying to shake a tree, Qin Wentian was clearly overestimating himself.
Below heavenly deities, everything was the same, they were mere insects. In their eyes, a hegemonic-level world overlord was only a slightly bigger ant. They were no different than mortals.
The ancient bell behind Qin Zhong expanded, transforming into the sky, becoming an entire world. Within this world, an image of the gigantic bell could be seen. Waves of heavenly might gushed forth, raining down endless destruction wanting to crush everything. Qin Wentian’s body was directly beneath the gigantic ancient bell. Before the divine might, he seemed so small and inconsequential.
