Lei Ba was still trying to convince himself that this space was an illusory one. However, seeing the gentle smile on Chu Qingyi's face, it was like a sharp knife stabbing right into his heart. Everyone knew that he was pursuing Chu Qingyi. During this period of time, he has been doing his best to aid her in dealing with Qin Wentian but right now, Chu Qingyi actually leaned against Qin Wentian so intimately, and even announced to everyone that she is already his woman? What the hell was going on?
Regardless of how deep his emotions for Chu Qingyi were, his face had been completely thrown away. Right now, his countenance alternated between shades of white and green, his expression incomparably unsightly to behold.
Even the experts from the Battle Saint Tribe stood there stunned. Their faces were filled with astonishment when they stared at the female beside Qin Wentian, while immense admiration surfaced in their hearts. As expected of the Saint Lord, Qin Wentian was too awesome. This way works as well?
Qin Wentian's lips twitched. He initially wanted to use this method to deal a blow to Chu Qingyi and Lei Ba, but he didn't expect Chu Qingyi to be so direct. Staring at the gentle eyes of Chu Qingyi, he transmitted his voice over, "What do you mean by this?"
"Isn't this the situation you wanted to see? Since you want to use this method to take revenge on me, I will simply give you what you want. I heard that the woman you love is also in the sacred academy, right? From now on, everyone will know of the relationship between you and me, wouldn't that be very interesting?" Chu Qingyi replied. Qin Wentian was incomparably depressed. He glanced at his surroundings and indeed, the eyes of everyone were filled with disdain as they glanced at him. They were all thinking that Qin Wentian was truly a despicable man, to think that he actually used such a method to torment the holy maiden of the Snowdrift Sage Hall, Chu Qingyi, until she gave in to him, tainting her austere reputation. Right now, she actually followed him of her own volition, taking the initiative to admit that she was already his woman.
However, given how beautiful Chu Qingyi was, this was simply a blessing for that despicable fellow Qin Wentian. During this period of time, nobody knew what Qin Wentian did to her. This undoubtedly would cause the crowd's imagination to run wild.
"Qingyi." Many experts from the Snowdrift Sage Hall were stunned.
"In the past, I was the one in the wrong. Back then I coveted his secret art and was defeated and humiliated by him, but that was nothing less than what I deserved. I shouldn't have implicated his junior apprentice brother in my quest for revenge. Let this matter come to an end here… After this period of time, I've also thought it through. Qin Wentian is a rare genius and it can be considered that I've found the candidate for my dao companion. Everyone, you guys should give us your blessings." Chu Qingyi smiled, as though she had completely turned over a new leaf.
Qin Wentian's eyes gleamed with light. Through the art of truth, he could sense that although there was still resentment in Chu Qingyi's heart, she no longer had any intent to kill him. This made him totally speechless.
"Scram!" Qin Wentian shouted. After that, he waved his hands as Chu Qingyi's body flew towards the group of experts from the Snowdrift Sage Hall. He truly didn't want to have any connection with this woman any longer.
"Since you have acknowledged your mistake, the torment you suffered during this period of time is clearly, also enough. I will release you today but if you antagonize me again in the future, I will not spare you." Qin Wentian coldly spoke.
"What do you mean by you will release me? Didn't I already say that I'm your woman? You can do whatever you want to me. Or could it be that you refuse to acknowledge your actions after what you did to me?" Chu Qingyi stared at Qin Wentian as she spoke, her words causing everyone present to indulge in fantasy again, thinking of how Qin Wentian played with the Holy Maiden, Chu Qingyi and now, after he finished playing, he wanted to abandon her.
"You are sick in the mind." Qin Wentian speechlessly replied. "Let's go."
After speaking, he and the experts from the Battle Saint Tribe directly left the area, no longer having the heart to even do combat. Lei Ba and the others didn't pursue them as well. He was still in a daze, staring at Chu Qingyi. After a moment, he stepped forward, coming before her as he asked, "Qingyi, was what you said real?"
"What do you think?" Chu Qingyi's beautiful eyes stared into the horizons as her expression was somewhat cold. She then continued, "Lei Ba, thank you for the things you've done for me. But there's no need for you to continue bothering about this matter. He is right, I should be the one to settle my own matters."
Lei Ba didn't quite understand what Chu Qingyi meant by that. However, he coldly replied, "Fine, I will no longer bother about your matters in the future. However, between him and me, there's still a grudge that I must settle. I will not spare him."
After he spoke, Lei Ba flicked his sleeves and departed, directly leaving this area. The prideful him seemed as though he just suffered a major psychological blow.
On the Sky Connecting Altar, Qin Wentian's eyes open as his consciousness returned to his body. Stepping down, a speechless look could still be seen on his face. Chu Qingyi's actions were completely out of his expectations.
Stretching his body, Qin Wentian didn't continue thinking about it. The tempering in the Sky Connecting Realm caused him to have great improvements. Right now during combat, it felt easier and easier for him to fuse all sorts of innate techniques together. He was improving bit by bit via his comprehension of all aspects regarding each particular innate technique. Next, he had to ponder over these insights and improve more from there. Nanfeng Yunxi and the others were no longer here. Evidently, they were all busy with their own cultivation, and also right now, he had no idea how long had he cultivated in the sacred academy for but he knew he had to grab hold of this opportunity well. Over here, there was not only heaven chosen from all regions of the immortal realms, there are also rarely seen locations with special conditions that enabled one to better comprehend insights, aiding people in their cultivation.
With a flash, his silhouette disappeared from this area, and headed back to those ancient palaces with the mountain ramparts. He wanted to continue observing the battles of immortal kings as it would surely aid him in his understanding of the usage of law energy.
Qin Wentian wanted to make use of every moment to increase his strength. In the academy, he broke through to the fourth-level from the second-level. It could be said that such a speed in improvement was godly. Hence, he wanted to improve as much as he can before he left this place. At the very least, he wouldn't be considered too weak when he departed the academy. Also, he can shorten the time needed to break through to the immortal king realm.
Those who entered the academy had no idea that right now, in the Nine Cauldron City, the gazes of numerous experts were staring in the direction of the sacred academy. The gate to the sacred academy was still not closed yet, even if one missed the time of the entry, as long as the quota wasn't filled, they would still have a chance to enter and take the trial on the immortal sea as long as their potential was high enough.
The various major powers in the immortal realms also paid close attention to this. This sacred academy is not merely a place to nurture their geniuses. In the future, an ancient emperor character might even be born from here. It was unknown how many immortal kings who stepped into the sacred academy this time around would be able to enter the immortal emperor realm, as well as how many from immortal-foundation would be able to break into the immortal king realm.
In the Central Regions of the immortal realms, the major powers are: the Nine-Emperor Immortal Empire, the Chasing Sun Immortal Empire, the Senluo Immortal Empire, the Snowdrift Sage Hall and the Askheart Temple.
In the Eastern Regions: the Evergreen Immortal Empire, the Thousand Transformations Immortal Sect, the Beast God Sect, the Paragon Sword Sect, the Sky Demon Palace and the Taihua Immortal Dynasty.
In the Western Regions - The various demonic races.
In the Southern Regions - The three great ancient clans.
In the Northern Regions: the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty, the Jadestage Immortal Palace, etc.
All these powers were paying extremely close attention to the sacred academy.
In the eighteenth year after the sacred academy opened, another sacred land appeared in each of the four sacred academies.
Qin Wentian stood in the airspace above the ancient palace while Little Rascal was beside him. Purgatory followed behind quietly as they stared into the horizons, at the sacred land that just appeared.
Above the sacred land, shadows of dragons and phoenixes, rocs, kirins, divine elephants, vermillion birds, divine turtles, etc could all be seen. The shadows of these greater demons caused the hearts of everyone to tremble, attracting the gazes of everyone in the academy. Just from looking at it, they knew that this sacred land was surely an extraordinary place.
"Let's go." Qin Wentian's silhouette flashed as he sped towards that location. Not only him, the other experts in the academy also saw the resplendent glow from the shadows of the demonic beasts. They all flew over, coming to the entrance of the sacred land.
Right now, the number of people who entered the academy, were naturally more than before. The white tigers still viewed Qin Wentian and his comrades with hatred. Every time they encountered each other, the eyes of the white tigers would all be gleaming with an intense balefulness.
"Let's enter." The experts stepped within, bathing in the light of the sacred land. Qin Wentian and his companions naturally didn't wish to fall behind. They too, sped forward, entering this seemingly illusory and ethereal sacred land.
This sacred land contained an ancient-looking and majestic greater demon palace with the life-like statues and sculptures of many greater demons within. Traces of divine charm were contained in each of these statues and there were over thousands of greater demons here. Many of the demonic beasts who entered this hall, could find their own species among the statues.
Qin Wentian's heart shuddered. Seems like this sacred academy out of the four academies, was really prepared for demonic creatures and those who cultivated the demonic arts. He came before a golden-winged great roc, there were many other rocs around his surroundings as well. Qin Wentian's gaze focused on the golden-winged great roc's statue as his immortal sense sunk into it. A moment later, as he stared at the statue's eyes, he discovered that this great roc seemingly came to life. A terrifying aura gushed forth from it and in the next instant, Qin Wentian's consciousness was brought directly into an illusory space. He then saw that golden-winged great roc floating in the air before him.
The eyes of this great roc were too fearsome, containing a sharpness that could penetrate through the heart of people. Its entire body was shining gold, and its dazzling wings seemed to be covered in resplendent runes.
"BOOM!" A bolt of lightning landed. Qin Wentian found it hard to even follow its movements. His aura abruptly erupted forth as he mumbled words of truth, creating the ancient character for suppression. However, the wings of the great roc directly sliced through the air, easily destroying the character for suppression and continued slashing towards his body.
Qin Wentian's entire body shimmered with a fearsome divine light. However, the speed of the great roc was simply too quick. Its wings directly smashed into Qin Wentian's fiendgod-like body, causing a thunderous sound to echo out. Under the impact, Qin Wentian's tyrannical defense was actually broken as fresh blood sprayed out from the wounds that appeared. He retreated with explosively speed, this was the first time he felt the might of a true saint beast.
"Bzz~" The golden-winged great roc was too fast. Its feathers slashed over, resembling golden sharp swords that ripped through the air, containing more strength compared to those ordinary geniuses in the external world. This statue, contained the battle intent of an extremely pure-blooded supreme golden-winged great roc.
"BOOM!" The phantom of a divine turtle appeared, shrouding him within protectively. His saint-grade immortal foundation unleashed a fearsome strength, channelling its energy into the divine turtle's projection while the great roc lunged over. With a loud shout, Qin Wentian activated God's Hand and blasted the roc away, jolting it back up into the air. However, the great roc simply hovered there, staring back at him calmly as though it took no damage at all.
