The nine astral rivers of the nine heavenly layers were in the air above everyone. They extended forth and seemed boundless, constituting a beautiful and magnificent sight.
All the deities were bathed in the starlight. Although they won an overwhelming victory in the deity-level battle, they didn’t feel too excited. Qin Wentian had fought for so much time for them, allowing them to have more cultivation time in the Heaven Vault to gain insights on their daos through their constellations. This caused an army of deities to be born and the older batches of deities would only grow stronger with time. Under such an environment, if they couldn’t even win a deity-level battle, how could they have the face to see Qin Wentian?
It was only natural for them to win the deity-level battle, there was nothing worthy to be joyful about. Everyone understood that the battle between the eight great experts in the air was then the true battle.
Under the starlight, a gentle breeze gusted by, causing Mo Qingcheng’s long hair to flutter. After she entered the heavenly deity realm, her aura became more outstanding and she was like a celestial maiden from the nine heavens, breathtakingly beautiful.
Beside Mo Qingcheng, Qing`er, Ye Qianyu, Luoshen Qianxue, Qin Kexin, the Southern Phoenix Matriarch, Nanfeng Yunxi, Nanfeng Shengge, Bai Qing and the other females were all so beautiful as well. Right now, they stood in different locations but their gazes all turned to the same direction.
“Wentian gege, you have to win for sure.” Bai Qing softly spoke, praying for Qin Wentian. She hated herself for not being strong enough to participate in the godking-level battle. She had no way to help Qin Wentian.
“He will.” Qing`er’s eyes were cold as she stared at the starry space. Her white hair fluttered in the wind but the resolve in her eyes was extremely staunch.
“Mhm, Wentian will definitely win. He promised me and sister Qing`er that he would bring us to tour the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, taking us to view all the beautiful sceneries.” A radiant smile appeared on Mo Qingcheng’s face. She firmly believed that Qin Wentian would win against his opponent. They had experienced so much suffering but managed to pass through all trials. This would be the final battle. Once this battle is won, from then on, their family could truly be free and explore the entire world. They would no longer have any external restraint in the form of enemies, under the nine heavenly layers.
They would view the sceneries of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms together, travel to all corners of it, visiting the majestic mountains, the magnificent lakes and rivers, admiring the world. This was what Qin Wentian has promised them. He would be able to do it for sure.
Luoshen Qianxue glanced at the beautiful young woman beside her. She stretched out her hand and held Mo Qingcheng’s hand while gently smiling, “Naturally, he would do what he has promised. If he dares to break the agreement, I will disown him as my son.”
“Thank you mother-in-law. Wentian also said that he would bring father-in-law and mother-in-law alone. He said that after being reunited with you all, he spent most of his time on cultivation and has never truly accompanied you two before. He said he would compensate for all the lost time. When everything is over, our family must definitely visit all corners of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms together!” Mo Qingcheng smiled sweetly.
“Right.” Luoshen Qianxue’s eyes were slightly wet. She nodded heavily, as many scenes of the future flashed through her mind. How beautiful would all that be?
In truth, not only for Qin Wentian, she and Qin Yuanfeng had always been under pressure. Firstly, it was their hatred towards the Qin Clan. After they left the Divine Mausoleum and settled the grudge with the Qin Clan, they initially thought everything would be over. But right now, the war for supremacy of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms suddenly started. They had never known true peace at all. She truly hoped that there would be a day where their family could live unrestrained, tossing aside everything and simply enjoying time with each other.
But the prerequisite for all of this was that they had to gain victory in the godking-level battles. Regardless of her son Qin Wentian or her husband Qin Yuanfeng, their opponents were extremely terrifying. One was the evilest godkings out of the eight ancient godkings. He had even devoured the dao of the Moon God and fused the power of two godkings into one. As for the other, he was the clan leader of the Che Clan that merged with an ultimate divine weapon, gaining control of the dao of chaos.
Right now, all of their hearts were tense, they were all silently praying.
“That little lass Youhuang must win as well.” Luoshen Qianxue glanced at Beiming Youhuang’s battlefield.
“Naturally. Sister Youhuang will definitely win. When everything is over, we will make Wentian organize a grand wedding to bring sister Youhuang into the family.” Mo Qingcheng gently smiled. She stared at Beiming Youhuang’s battlefield, and spoke of a beautiful future. How could she not understand the feelings Youhuang had for Wentian? Youhuang was also willing to give up everything, including her life. During the first invasion, it was Youhuang who saved all of them and she almost died. Now, she’s risking her life again to join the battle and her opponent was the Buddha Sovereign, one of the strongest existences in the world currently. Even when the three experts on their side joined forces, they also failed to kill him. The Buddha Sovereign was a monster with both the buddha and devil in one body.
If she was the slightest bit careless, she would be consigned to eternal damnation with no hope of reprieve.
When everyone heard Mo Qingcheng’s words, all of them felt their hearts were moved. All of them also prayed for this, they hoped that her words could come true.
“Silly child.” Luoshen Qianxue tightened her hold on Mo Qingcheng’s hand a little. She then spoke in a light voice, “Wentian is truly fortunate to have met you girls. If he doesn’t treat you all well, how can he face up to you all?”
The people at the side listening felt many emotions in their hearts. The hearts of Nanfeng Yunxi, Nanfeng Shengge, and the others all felt extremely tender now. All of them were silently praying. Now, they only hoped that Qin Wentian could be safe and return victorious. From then on, there would no longer be any troubles in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.
“Nothing will happen to elder brother.” Luoshen Lei also had a radiant smile on her face as she spoke to everyone. “Why are you all frowning? We must trust in elder brother. How can he be defeated?”
“Mhm, nothing will happen to senior brother.” Jun Mengchen nodded his head. The expressions of many people then eased up but their hearts were still filled with worry. It was impossible for them to totally let go of their worry and anxiousness. After all, this battle concerns the fate of the entire Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms.
Their hearts had already flown into the boundless starry space, together with the ones they entrusted their hopes and expectations.
In the boundless starry space, the battlefield in the nine heavenly layers, all the evil devils surrounded Qin Wentian. Each of them were extremely gigantic, resembling gods of evil and all had different shapes and forms.
There were some powerful devils with nine heads, some with many arms, some with blood-red light in their eyes, some emitting the aura of corrosion… Each of the devils had a different dao, and each of their daos was terrifying to the extreme, containing immense destructive power.
Right now, Qin Wentian was completely surrounded. These devils were summoned by Yue Changkong. Yue Changkong was the king of all these devil lords.
Qin Wentian glanced at the evil devils, the buddhic light radiating from him grew increasingly bright. The holy light contained the properties of purification, wanting to purify all evil from the world. However, at this moment, he saw a pair of devil eyes looking straight at him. In the next instant, many illusions flashed through his mind as countless terrifying scenes played out before him. After he was killed by the evil devils, his family, his friends were all slaughtered, their fates were extremely miserable. He saw Beiming Youhuang living a life worse than death, he saw the terrible fates awaiting Qingcheng and Qing`er. All these scenes continued to devour his heart. These were the things he was most fearful of.
Some times, death wasn’t the most terrifying thing. What was most terrifying are the things that would happen to his loved ones after his death.
“This is the power of heart devils, he wants to use illusions to summon my heart devils.” Qin Wentian understood what Yue Changkong wanted to do. Buddhic chants filled the air as the buddhic light grew more resplendent, attempting to expel the heart devils.
But what were heart devils? There would always be fear in one’s heart. If there’s fear, there would be heart devils.
What was the goal for Qin Wentian’s cultivation? His goal was to be free from all restraints, for the safety of his loved ones, for him to be strong enough so others couldn’t threaten him, for him to be carefree. What he feared wasn’t his death, it was the fate of his loved ones after his death. Hence, with the seed of fear existing, the heart devils naturally took this chance and influenced his heart.
Everyone would have a heart devil. Their influence was unblockable as long as one felt fear.
“Kill!” An evil light gleamed in Yue Changkong’s eyes. The evil devils in the area all launched their attacks, rushing towards Qin Wentian, wanting to take the opportunity when Qin Wentian was distracted by his heart devil to kill him. Yue Changkong naturally understood that given Qin Wentian’s current strength and cultivation, the influence of the heart devils would only last for a few moments. It was impossible to depend solely on Qin Wentian’s heart devils to deal with him. Attacking him with everything while Qin Wentian was distracted was the best choice to kill him.
The buddhic light was rapidly being corroded by the attacks of the evil devils. The entire space seemed about to be destroyed. When the boundless evil energy blasted into Qin Wentian’s golden buddha body, the impact and damage caused cracks to appear.
“SLAY!” Qin Wentian roared in rage, his closed eyes suddenly opened as his millions of hands slashed out resplendent arcs of light, transforming into sword rivers that contained the dao of space and time, as well as the aspect of purification, powered by the buddha dao. Many of those evil devils were instantly disintegrated. However, their numbers were too much and they were too powerful. It was impossible to destroy them all with a single strike.
This evil space seemed to become hell, buried in the starry space. The evil devils were howling, a powerful corrosion energy then bore down on Qin Wentian’s golden body, slowly invading it.
“Yue Changkong.” Qin Wentian’s body was ice-cold. The golden buddhic light has faded, becoming extremely dark and dim. The gigantic golden body was now a body of darkness. An instant later, towering amounts of devilish might flooded out from Qin Wentian, threatening to dominate everything in the surrounding space, filled with the air of tyranny. This transformation caused Yue Changkong to be stunned.
It seems like not only that bald donkey of the western paradise could fuse the buddha and devil in one body, Qin Wentian has achieved the same feat as well!
