Qin Wentian's projection hugged both Luo Huan and Qin Yao as his body trembled.
For immortal senses of immortal-foundation experts, their protective immortal sense would be contained within the body of the people they wanted to protect and would only be activated under the most dire of circumstances. The projection formed by the immortal sense has a portion of the true body's combat prowess. These protective strands of immortal sense would sap the origin qi and spirit of the immortal greatly and those who are protected are usually the people who were very close to the immortal casting it. Luo Huan and Qin Yao both have a strand of protective immortal sense from Qin Wentian because they were one of the few people whom he was the closest to.
And now, they actually encountered such an incident. How could Qin Wentian not feel pain in his heart.
"Senior sister, I will ask the Emperor Lord for help. Your injuries will definitely be healed." Qin Wentian's projection from his immortal sense brought Luo Huan and flew along. His other hand carried Qin Yao. Qin Yao's injuries weren't that serious, but for Luo Huan, her injuries required immediate attention.
At this moment, the experts from the Thousand Transformations Sect were all rushing here. Qin Wentian's immortal sense contacted an immortal king and bid him to send Qin Yao and Luo Huan to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect immediately.
At the same time, Qin Wentian's actual body sped towards a direction with extreme speed. His immortal sense gushed out frenziedly, trying to find the people who acted against Luo Huan and Qin Yao.
"SEAL THIS ENTIRE SPACE!" Qin Wentian roared. A fearsome aura shot down from the sky as formless law energy enveloped an area of a thousand mile radius instantly, covering it in a dome of golden light, locking this area securely.
"There's someone there!" At this moment, an immortal foundation expert pointed at a direction, there was a group of people on the verge of splitting up and fleeing away with great haste and in a panic.
"Bzz~" A group of experts shot over with speed like lightning. The person fleeing was none other than one of the perpetrators and was the man who targeted Qin Yao. These people all split up and wanted to flee away. Clearly, they knew they would all be in for it if they stuck together but this person panicked too early and wasn't calm enough. His suspicious actions easily led to him and his comrades being captured.
However under such circumstances, it was difficult even if one didn't want to panic.
Very soon, numerous silhouettes descended from the sky, surrounding all these people. Their expressions instantly turned to the color of dead ashes. When the immortal sense on Luo Huan was activated, they already knew that they were in deep trouble. And as expected, they were now all trapped, surrounded by experts from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect.
Qin Wentian descended from the air. A terrifying killing intent gushed forth from him as he stared at these people. His entire being radiated a sense of coldness as he spoke, "Who sent you all over?"
A few immortal-foundation characters to infiltrate the Cloud Prefecture City seeking opportunities to trap his kin and close comrades. Qin Wentian wouldn't believe it if they said they came here on their own accord. There was most probably a major power behind them and that power was 90% likely to be the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect.
The leader among those captured stared at Qin Wentian. His eyes gleamed with a demonic glint and instantly, Qin Wentian felt himself appearing in another space controlled by this opponent.
"Chi!" A beam of light flashed as an enemy from the side suddenly erupted forth with might, dashing towards Qin Wentian, aiming to kill him.
"You must be courting death." A resplendent glow erupted forth from Qin Wentian as a fearsome might gushed out. He wasn't controlled by his opponent at all. The experts in the surroundings all blasted out attacks and by the time his opponent arrived before him, he was already coughing out blood from the injuries obtained from the powerful attacks sinking into him.
Qin Wentian took a few steps forward, staring straight into the eyes of his opponent. His palm landed before his opponent's chest as a destructive might ravaged the interior of his opponent's body.
"ARGHH!" That person screamed in misery, roaring for Qin Wentian to kill him.
"You want to die so easily?" Qin Wentian's countenance was like frost. Another wave of destructive might bore down on the immortal foundation of his target, causing the screams of pain to intensify.
"Speak, who gave you the order?" Qin Wentian's eyes flickered with an extremely terrifying light.
"You should already know the answer. Qin Wentian, do you still think you can live after offending his Majesty?" That person had a look of madness on his face. "Qin Wentian, dealing with you is an order from my master. As long as we capture you, it would be a deed of great merit. Your destiny in the future will be as such, prepare to be hunted down by us. As to who was the one who gave this command, it's my master, the Dream Demon King."
"BOOM!" Qin Wentian's palm slammed down as the sound of something shattering rang out. That person screamed in agony as more and more cracks appeared on his immortal foundation until it finally broke apart, destroyed completely.
A terrifying sword qi radiated from Qin Wentian's palm, drilling through the body of his opponent. In a mere short instant, his opponent laid on the ground with all his meridians and Yuanfu destroyed. This man has already become a complete cripple. He couldn't even move.
"Since you love the Cloud Prefecture City so much, you can stay here forever." Qin Wentian turned and soared into the air. This man almost tainted his sister Qin Yao. How would Qin Wentian kill him so easily? He intentionally crippled him, forcing him to remain here in the Cloud Prefecture City. If he wished to escape, there was only one path for him to take - commiting suicide.
"Dream Demon King." Qin Wentian stared ahead, the killing intent he was exuding was terrifying to the extreme. He naturally remembered who the Dream Demon King was. Back then when he participated in the hundred-year banquet recruitment event of the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect, the Dream Demon King was one of the testers. The Dream Demon King used the dreams as a way to probe his deepest secrets. It was extremely dangerous. The Dream Demon King always appeared to be sleeping but he was able to cause the death of people silently undetected.
These people who infiltrated the city were actually the disciples of the Dream Demon King. No wonder they had the ability to bewitch the mind, making Qin Yao and Luo Huan listen to their orders. If it wasn't for Little Rascal not being controlled, the consequences would truly be too horrible to imagine.
In the past among the subordinates of the Eastern Sage Immortal Emperor, Qin Wentian hated the Deepflame Immortal King the most. Later on, Deepflame died in the hands of Bai Wuya and now, the person he hated most in his heart was replaced successfully by the Dream Demon King. This man was the immortal king Qin Wentian wanted to kill the most. Sadly right now, he was still too weak in the face of an immortal king expert.
"Young Lord Qin, over there!" At this moment, somebody shouted out to Qin Wentian. Another person was captured in the distance. Qin Wentian flew over with great speed and discovered that this was none other than the person who caused Luo Huan to commit suicide with his actions. Right now he was already seriously injured and laid weakly on the ground. The eyes which he used to look at Qin Wentian with were filled with the flames of anger. It was because Qin Wentian's immortal sense was triggered, which caused his doomsday today.
"Make sure he doesn't even have the strength left to kill himself." The ice in Qin Wentian's voice could pierce the bones.
"Roger." Everyone replied. Under the screams, they shattered the person's immortal foundation and broke his meridians, crippling both his hands. Qin Wentian's face was expressionless as he departed. No matter who it is, as long as they did something to his loved ones, he would definitely make the offenders pay a most painful price for their actions.
Many experts gathered in the air, they were all still searching for the offenders.
"Young Lord Qin, there's still one more who's unable to be found. He should have already hidden himself."
"Mhm, even if we have to dig three feet into the ground, make sure to find him." Qin Wentian's voice was glacial. The person missing was none other than the senior brother of these people. His cultivation base was the highest and he was the one who acted against Luo Huan and Qin Yao in the inn.
The experts of the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect began the search by preparing to scour each inch of the sealed area. Even if that person had a treasure that obstructed scrying from immortal sense, he wouldn't be able to escape a physical search.
However after a long time, despite completely searching the sealed area, they still couldn't find anyone.
Qin Wentian frowned, "Is there a possibility that he changed his features?"
"Ordinary disguise techniques wouldn't be able to evade the probe of immortal sense. In addition, we didn't manage to find that treasure that can obstruct immortal sense scrying." Someone replied. "Maybe earlier he has already used a spatial treasure to escape. Splitting from his companions must be a ruse to allow him to flee more easily."
"That might be the case." Qin Wentian's expression was as cold as ever. "However, I do not want to take the chance. Everyone, I have to trouble you further."
"Young Lord Qin is too polite. This incident happened in our Cloud Prefecture City. Even if Young Lord Qin didn't command us, we will still do our best to search for the perpetrator." Someone replied. The experts from the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect began to widen the radius of their search. However after an entire day passed, no one could be found. In this vast city, if one truly wanted to conceal himself, it's not going to be so easy to find him.
Naturally all the experts understood that the perpetrator also wouldn't have an easy time. He had to live in a state of constant worry and fear, and if he was the slightest bit careless, he might be captured. At that point, the only path for him to take was death.
It was impossible for the Cloud Prefecture City to restrict flying permanently. Qin Wentian also understood this point. If they failed to catch all the culprits during the first day, it would be many times more difficult if they wanted to do so in the future.
Qin Wentian returned to the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect first. In the Emperor Lord Palace, the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord brought Luo Huan and Qin Wentian with him to meet Qin Wentian. When he saw the senior sister who was smiling at him despite the ordeal she went through, a radiant smile also appeared in Qin Wentian's eyes.
"The injuries your senior sister suffered are considered quite heavy. Luckily her cultivation is still weak and it's not difficult to restore her. I will help her to reconnect her meridians and repair her Yuanfu. As for your sister, she didn't really suffer much physical harm from that ordeal." The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord spoke.
"Many thanks to Emperor Lord." Qin Wentian bowed deeply to the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, feeling gratitude in his heart. All outsiders assumed that the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord was his master, but he knew very well that the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord didn't have any relationship with him. Despite so, the Emperor Lord was still willing to help him time and time again. Qin Wentian was naturally grateful for this.
"No worries." The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord shook his head.
"Senior sister, Sis Qin Yao." Qin Wentian walked to their side, feeling a sense of relief. Luckily nothing happened to them or he would definitely feel guilty forever.
"Little brat, your senior apprentice sister is just as beautiful as before, what are you looking at?" Luo Huan giggled, she was as bubbly as usual.
"I will know the answer after we hugged." Qin Wentian hugged Luo Huan and Qin Yao. The two maidens rolled their eyes but there was a hint of a smile in their gazes.
"Enough, the Emperor Lord is here." Qin Yao reminded in a low voice.
Qin Wentian loosened his hug. He then saw Luo Huan and Qin Yao both bowing to the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord, "We can't thank the Emperor Lord enough for your favor in saving our lives. Our gratitude knows no bounds."
The Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord waved his hand, indicating that it was not a big deal. He then turned to Qin Wentian, "Wentian, although everything was resolved in the end, it's best to be more careful in the future. You should understand that as long as the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect isn't destroyed, there would always be the possibility of such things happening in the future."
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded. He could only hate himself for being too weak now.
"Emperor Lord, I wish to go out on the frontlines and participate." Qin Wentian spoke, his words causing the eyes of the Thousand Transformations Emperor Lord to flicker. "There are seven prefectures controlled by the Eastern Sage Immortal Sect and six controlled by me. These few years, there were many minor battles that broke out. The fighting occurs mainly at the common border of the thirteen prefectures. That place is extremely dangerous, do you really want to go?"
"Mhm." Qin Wentian nodded. He could also use this as a chance to temper himself on the battlefield!
