Chapter 1865: Demon Sovereigns
Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
It has been about two months worth of time after Qin Zhong died. During this period of time, the incidents that happened in the Luoshen Clan circulated to the entire Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. It has been a long time since such major matters happened. A war almost broke out among three hegemonic powers, the Qin Clan, Divine Ox Clan and the Luoshen Clan. However, because the Luoshen Clan decided to be willingly humiliated, the matter was concluded.
After this matter, the Qin Clan and the Luoshen Clan started to search for Qin Wentian’s traces, they also continued with the investigation of Qin Zhong’s death.
Luoshen Chuan also returned to the Desolate Region, he was also searching for Qin Wentian.
However, never in their wildest imaginations would they imagine that Qin Wentian was actually currently at the other hegemonic power of the Desolate Region, he was on the Demon God Mountain.
Today, Qin Wentian woke up. The young man and young woman who brought him here appeared before him and they were both staring at him with interest.
“This place is the Demon God Mountain?” Qin Wentian asked. Evidently, he hasn’t been completely unconscious and maintained a hint of clarity. He actually knew that this place was the Demon God Mountain.
“Qin Wentian.” That young man smiled. “Was Qin Zhong killed by you?”
Clearly, he was very curious about this point. The Qin Clan actually lost one heavenly deity and even now, the Qin Clan was still investigating this seriously, despite there being no clues.
Now, the only person who could solve this riddle was none other than Qin Wentian alone.
“What do you think?” Qin Wentian smiled. He knew that he was on the Demon God Mountain but he had no idea whether the Demon God Mountain had good or bad intentions. After all, his understanding of the Demon God Mountain only extended to the information he read in the ancient records.
There are five demon sovereigns on the Demon God Mountain that governs all the demonic beasts here. There were many different demonic races, and for those demons who could become heavenly deities, they were known as demon gods and given the title of demon sovereigns. In the world of demons, strength was everything. They contended against the Divine Ox Clan but didn’t suppress and dominate the other races, choosing to cooperate with each other instead. They only hope more demon sovereigns would appear on the Demon God Mountain. After all, the main purpose of them allying together was to deal with the Divine Ox Clan. And now, by pooling their strengths together, they finally obtained enough power to stand equally with the Divine Ox Clan.
“He actually awoke. Let’s inform this to the demon sovereigns.” The young woman calmly spoke. The young man smiled and glanced at Qin Wentian before leaving the area with the young woman, leaving Qin Wentian alone behind.
Qin Wentian stood up and walked out from the ancient demon palace. He discovered that he was on a very tall mountain and there was a boundlessly vast mountain range before his eyes. All sorts of demonic beasts gathered in groups, even for those rarely seen demons, they could not be considered rare here. After all, this place was the Demon God Mountain, a paradise for demonic beasts in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. It was also a gathering place for all greater demons.
Qin Wentian breathed out, expelling the impurities in his body. He felt extremely refreshed. Luckily, he had cultivated the Undying Scripture and he had the undying law energy protecting his body. This was why he could recover so quickly. After that battle with Qin Zhong, he truly understood how terrifying heavenly deities are. Before this, the power of heavenly deities only existed in his imagination but after that fight with Qin Zhong, he had personally experienced the tyrannical strength of heavenly deities.
Being able to survive that battle was truly due to luck. Not only so, he had also gained many benefits from that. His insights in comprehending a heavenly dao would surely increase when he tries to break through in the future.
“Lei`er.” Qin Wentian took out his messaging crystal. The first thing he did was to inform Lei`er about his safety. Most probably, she was extremely worried about him.
“Elder brother.” A voice filled with surprise and joy replied back instantly. “Elder brother…”
“It’s me, Lei`er.” Qin Wentian could hear her choked sobs. That little lass must have teared because of her agitation. She should have believed that he had already died.
“This is excellent. Elder brother, you are still alive.” Luoshen Lei emotionally spoke. “Elder brother, where are you now? I will go look for you with grandpa.”
“I’m on the Demon God Mountain.” Qin Wentian replied.
“Demon God Mountain?” Luoshen Lei’s gaze froze. Her elder brother was actually in the third hegemonic power of the Desolate Region, the Demon God Mountain. Could it be that the Demon God Mountain was the one who killed Qin Zhong? This was impossible, right?
“Mhm. Back then Qin Zhong was chasing after me but I managed to kill him due to luck. I was heavily injured and brought here by experts from the Demon God Mountain. Although I have no idea whether they did so because of kind intentions or evil intentions, I think that they won’t harm me or they would have long handed me to the Qin Clan or the Luoshen Clan.” Qin Wentian transmitted his voice. The Demon God Mountain didn’t imprison him or restrict him.
“Elder brother, you actually killed Qin Zhong. That was a heavenly deity!” Luoshen Lei felt her heart shaking with disbelief. However, she knew that her elder brother surely wouldn’t lie to her. Qin Zhong’s death didn’t really have a secret to it. The answer was very simple. He was simply killed by Qin Wentian.
“If it wasn’t for him being careless and wanting to capture me alive, the one who died would have been me instead.” Qin Wentian felt really fortunate when he thought back to that battle. Just with his strength alone, leaving aside the divine rod, he still wasn’t powerful enough to kill a heavenly deity.
“Oh, by the way Lei`er, what happened after that? Are you and grandfather okay?” Qin Wentian asked. After hearing this question, Luoshen Lei told Qin Wentian everything that happened to the Luoshen Clan during this period of time. After hearing it, Qin Wentian had an indescribable feeling in his heart. His grandfather actually gave up the position of the clan leader for him and even directly rushed to the Heaven Region, wanting to take him back from the Qin Clan.
As for the Qin Clan, they actually allied with the Divine Ox Clan, sending an army to the Luoshen Clan. Luoshen Mu shied from battle, causing the Luoshen Clan to be gravely humiliated. In fact, he even made use of this opportunity to suppress those who used to support his grandfather. Regardless of the heavenly deity or the ten world overlords brought away by the Qin Clan, all of them used to be Luoshen Chuan’s supporters. Luoshen Meng’s grandfather was also one of them.
Luoshen Lei even told Qin Wentian that right now, the Luoshen Clan was crumbling internally. Many experts have decided to leave.
Just when Qin Wentian was silently musing over these, the young man and young woman from the demon races came back. Qin Wentian then ended the conversation with Luoshen Lei.
“The demon sovereign wants to see you.” The young man calmly spoke.” Qin Wentian nodded and followed the two of them, heading towards one of the five tallest mountains in the Demon God Mountain Range and arrived before a true demon god palace.
In the palace, on a majestic throne, a demon sovereign sat there. Although this demon sovereign was in human form, his body size was extremely large. His eyes gleamed with terrifying light, exuding an imposing pressure.
“This is the Heaven Devouring Demon Sovereign.” The young woman’s cool voice rang out. Heaven Devouring Demon Sovreign, his true form was a heaven devouring beast and was one of the five demon sovereigns of the Demon God Mountain.
Right now, Little Rascal was actually seated beside that divine throne of this demon sovereign. He winked at Qin Wentian and transmitted his voice, “Ah, Wentian. You’ve finally awakened.”
“You little bastard, you really know how to enjoy life. After you woke up from your injuries, you actually didn’t take care of me?” Qin Wentian transmitted back with a curse.
“The demon sovereign has already instructed them to take care of you. He wants me to remain by his side.” Little Rascal replied. Qin Wentian felt joy in his heart. Heaven devouring beasts were extremely rare and now, a demon god-level character like the Heaven Devouring Demon Sovereign actually regarded Little Rascal so highly. He naturally felt happy for Little Rascal.
“Was Qin Zhong killed by you?” The Heaven Devouring Demon Sovereign stared at Qin Wentian as he asked.
“It was only by luck.” Qin Wentian glanced at Little Rascal. It should be this little fellow who told this demon sovereign about that. Hence, there was no need for him to conceal anything. Since this demon sovereign was fond of Little Rascal, he naturally wouldn’t have any ill intention towards him.
“Even though it was by luck, being able to kill a heavenly deity at the world overlord level clearly shows that you have supreme talent. However, right now, the external world is looking for you everywhere. The Qin Clan and the Luoshen Clan are the ones behind it. What do you plan to do?” The demon sovereign asked.
“I have no plans as of yet.” Qin Wentian honestly replied.
“I told this little fellow to follow me but he wants to follow you instead. Why don’t you stay on the Demon God Mountain? After all, the ones who know of your identity are only a few people and I’ve already told them to keep it a secret. How about it?” The heaven devouring sovereign spoke. Qin Wentian pondered a little. Cultivating on the Demon God Mountain? It wasn’t too bad. Right now, he needed to stabilize his foundation and attempt to break through to the next cultivation realm.
“Sure.” Qin Wentian nodded in agreement.
“You can leave first.” The heaven devouring demon sovereign nodded. Qin Wentian bid his farewell. The young man and young woman glanced at Qin Wentian. Qin Zhong was really killed by him alone?
“How much has your strength recovered?” The young man asked.
“Is there a problem?” Qin Wentian laughed as he asked.
“Nothing much, I wish to spar against you. I want to test myself against someone who can kill a heavenly deity.” The eyes of the young man gleamed with sharpness as he brimmed with excitement.
“In the future if there’s a chance, I will be sure to spar with you.” Qin Wentian smiled.
“Alright.” The eyes of the young man still gleamed sharply. “I’m a sky roc under the Kun Sovereign.”
“I will remember it.” Qin Wentian nodded. The Kun Sovereign’s true form should be a KunPeng (Leviathan Roc). It was able to rule unchallenged in the oceans or fly supreme in the sky. The young man true’s form was a roc. Although he is directly under the command of the Kun Sovereign, any one of the five demon sovereigns on the Demon God Mountain would be able to give orders to them.
The sky roc’s silhouette flashed as wings took formed behind his back. The wings gleamed resplendently and a moment later, he vanished in an instant. The young woman brought Qin Wentian back to his resting place, “You can stay here temporarily for now.”
“Right, many thanks.” Qin Wentian nodded. After that, the young woman departed.
Qin Wentian glanced at the surroundings. This area should be considered a territory governed by the Heaven Devouring Sovereign.
“Who is it that has come to my Demon God Mountain?” At this moment, the voice of the Heaven Devouring Demon Sovereign thundered out. Qin Wentian’s eyes flashed as he stared in a certain direction.
After that, a figure descended from the sky, directly appearing here. When Qin Wentian saw that figure, his eyes gleamed sharply as he sped over there directly.
Outside the Demon God Palace, Qin Wentian rushed back after he had just left here. That figure who just appeared was standing in opposition with the Heaven Devouring Demon Sovereign. The demon sovereign was extremely unhappy now, “Luoshen Chuan, isn’t it a little rude for you to be barging in unannounced like this?”
So it turned out that the person who came here was Luoshen Chuan who has returned to the Desolate Region. After he learned from Luoshen Lei that Qin Wentian was here, he immediately rushed here alone.
“Grandfather!” Qin Wentian called out. Luoshen Chuan turned and nodded his head at Qin Wentian. He had been worried for many days but upon seeing that Qin Wentian was safe, he acted extremely calm. After that, he turned to the demon sovereign, “I came to fetch him. Sorry for any disturbance caused.”
“Luoshen Chuan, you forcefully barged into my Demon God Mountain. Isn’t your behavior too rude? You want to brush this off with a simple apology?” Another voice rang out. In the air, another figure sped over with frightening speed. This figure had huge wings behind him, capable of blotting out the sun. He was like the lord of the nine heavens, it was none other than the Kun Sovereign.
“Senior, my grandfather only did this because he was worried about me, he has no other intentions. Please pardon his behavior.” Qin Wentian spoke. He wasn’t worried about Luoshen Chuan’s safety. As the leader of the Luoshen Clan, although he was the previous one, Luoshen Chuan was undoubtedly strong enough to retreat safely. However, he didn’t wish for there to be a conflict between Luoshen Chuan and the Demon God Mountain.
