"Qin Wushuang, you were looking for me, and I am here. Stop messing things up!"
When the Emperor of the Great Wu opened the door of the secret chamber, he had already accepted his death. If he did not, he would not have come out. Earlier, he thought he could get away from this disaster. However, he did not expect that Qin Wushuang would arrive here so quickly that they could no longer wait for the support army from the three Upper Subordinate countries.
After some hard decision, he decided to step out. Although he was the ruler of a country, before an Upper Sky warrior, he knew he would not have much leeway.
Being the Emperor, he could only step out and sacrifice himself to protect the entire Royal family and to prevent the entire Great Wu from being consigned to eternal damnation.
All of this had started due to his ambition. Thus, he should be the one to end it.
Thus, although the Emperor of the Great Wu could not help but tremble from head to toe as he withstood Qin Wushuang’s Upper Sky presence, inwardly, he was extremely calm. He was prepared to die.
As long as he protected the Royal families and his offspring get to live, the Great Wu would have hope. If he remained hidden and thought he could get away, eventually, him and his family would not survive before Qin Wushuang’s power and that deadly roar.
To put it bluntly, he had underestimated the power of an Upper Sky elite warrior. He thought he could escape by hiding in the secret chamber. The reality had proven to him that this was not the case at all.
Even if he were to dig thee metres deep into the ground to bury himself, the Upper Sky elite warrior would still have methods to deal with him.
Looking with slanted eyes, Qin Wushuang looked with disdain at this Emperor of the Great Wu.
He possessed a tall figure and some temperament. At least before him, this Emperor did not reveal too much fear on his face. On the other hand, he remained self-composed.
"It’s the best and the smartest move for you to come out." Qin Wushuang said coldly, "You understand your situation."
The color on the Emperor’s face flickered pale green from time to time. Yet, he said: "Qin Wushuang, since you are here, whatever you are planning, why not lay it out."
"Lay it out? Can you receive it?"
"Regardless of being able to do it, I will take all the blame. Tell me, how you wish to resolve and seek satisfaction for the grudge between the Bai Yue and the Great Wu?"
"To resolve the grudge between our two countries?" Qin Wushuang sneered, "Who said I came here to resolve the grudge between two countries. I came here to seek personal revenge for Senior Brother Qiu. You and Qi Shengnan are the two main criminals for this invasion. Qi Shengnan has already died. And you still live freely. I came to borrow your head as a sacrifice to Senior Brother Qiu’s soul!"
"As for the politics between our two countries, the Emperor of the Bai Yue will make the decision," Qin Wushuang said lightly.
The Emperor of the Great Wu said bitterly: "Who would believe your words? If you wanted to resolve personal grudges and to avenge Qiu Lingde, then this has already been resolved the moment you killed the Martial Saint. Why did you keep killing my elite warriors along the way? If you want to destroy my country, why disguise it?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Your Great Wu loved to show off and cause trouble. I did it to remove your claws and to prevent your country from continuing to cause trouble. Or else, you would only bring disaster upon your people. How could I be disguising my true intentions?"
His words of sarcasm made the Emperor of the Great Wu unable to utter a word.
There was the so-called saying of the winner would become the king, and the loser loses everything. Currently, the Great Wu was a loser country
and they had lost their Martial Saint. Whatever they said would be useless. At most, they would receive a few more words of mocking from the enemy.
"Qin Wushuang, I know that you can only let go of your anger by taking my life. I know that before an Upper Sky warrior, I am powerless against you. Take my head and I will say nothing. If we can end this grudge and make you stop, I will not regret dying!"
The Emperor of the Great Wu gave a fervent speech. Apparently, he had already accepted death.
Qin Wushuang sized him with a sneer. Of course, he knew his little plan. He wanted him to kill him only, forgive his Royal family and still keep his territory.
This plan would be beneficial to the Great Wu. However, Qin Wushuang did not want it.
"You, I must kill. I cannot forgive your direct line of descendants. I could consider forgiving the other offsprings from other lines. For your line, I will not show mercy to a single one of you!" Qin Wushuang said with a cold tone.
He shook the snake shaped whip and spread the Upper Sky Qi. The whip wrapped around the neck of the Emperor.
At this time, a sound of shouting came from the outside: "Hold on!"
Stunned, Qin Wushuang felt that two strong waves of Upper Sky Qi was approaching rapidly as they had already arrived outside of the wall.
Hearing this voice, the Emperor of the Great Wu was overjoyed as he knew that the two Martial Saints from the Great Jin had arrived. He had been fortunate enough to meet with these two Upper Sky warriors once. Thus, he knew who they were from the sound.
Although Qin Wushuang was slightly stunned, he reacted immediately. He observed that the Emperor of the Great Wu showed a face full of excitement and wrapped the long whip around his neck with a sneer. He pulled him in front of him. Next, he grabbed the Emperor and jumped to a high ground to prevent these two invading Upper Sky elite warriors from attacking him from both sides.
Qin Wushuang sneered and looked at two Upper Sky figures jumping together.
"Young man, don’t bully intolerably." One of the Upper Sky elite warrior in a yellow robe spoke clearly.
"Who are you?" Qin Wushuang was not worried. He could see that if he were to fight against these two one on one, they would not be able to defeat him. He would even go against two of them at the same time.
"We are from the Great Jin." That yellow robed elite warrior said lightly.
"Great Jin?" Qin Wushuang knew that the Great Jin country located on the north to the Great Wu. They did not have a bad relationship nor a friendly one.
Although a while ago, representatives of the Great Wu went around trying to build a four country alliance to invade the Bai Yue together, the alliance never formed due to division of benefits. Thus, on the day of the November 9th, only the West Chu agreed to send out troops.
Since the Great Jin and the Ba Shu country did not enter the four country alliance or get involved, why did the two Upper Sky Martial Saint come here together now?
However, soon Qin Wushuang understood the situation. They were here because—Without the lips, the teeth would feel cold.
If the Great Wu did survive, regardless of how strong or prosperous the Bai Yue become, they would not threaten the Great Jin Country. However, once the Bai Yue had swallowed the Great Wu, they would pose as a direct threat to the Great Jin.
Of course, the Great Jin would not allow this thing to happen.
"Young man, where it is possible to let people off, one should spare them. You also killed a lot of the elite warriors of the Great Wu. Now, you are at the imperial capital and want to kill the Emperor. You have made a mess of the order and a violation of the rules."
"Rules? Who made the rules?" Qin Wushuang sneered.
"It was the hidden rules that have existed for hundreds of years among our Subordinate Countries."
"Is there such rule? That Qi Shengnan took advantage of my country’s difficulty and had killed my Martial Saint. Why didn’t you guys come out to blame him?’
"When the Great Wu schemed with the fellow Subordinate Countries to try and invade my Bai Yue, why didn’t you say they had violated the rules? Yet, you guys only came out to stop my revenge, does this make sense?"
The so-called rules did not exist at all. It was a form of rule for the winner and the loser.
Qin Wushuang knew that these two planned to use the advantage of numbers to suppress him. Only, how could Qin Wushuang fall for their tricks?
That yellow-robed elite warrior said lightly: "Qiu Lingde got killed, and you have killed Qi Shengnan. This grudge should have been resolved. Even if you still have anger, you have already killed many innocents to fill the gap. Your anger should be gone. To us few old guys, we came from a thousand miles away when we received the message from the Great Wu Emperor. We are here to resolve this long time grudge between the two countries."
"Oh, this way, not only you two had come?"
"Of course now, the Martial Saint from the West Chu and the Ba Shu Country are all on the way. I believe soon they will arrive too. We all share the same opinions. You should stop before going too far. Too far is as bad as not enough."
"Ha ha, are you threatening me?" Qin Wushuang asked with an unfriendly tone.
"It’s not a threat, but I hope that everyone will sit down quietly to discuss the best solution." That yellow robed elite warrior was peaceful.
Qin Wushuang shook his head with a sneer: "If I don’t accept your mediation, what will happen?"
"It would depend on the seriousness of the matter. If the matter becomes serious, it might be possible for all three countries to invade the Bai Yue." Suddenly, the other Martial Saint from the Great Jin said coldly.
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Ok, you’ve got guts. I will remember the Great JIn. You mentioned that the Martial Saint from the West Chu will also come, is that Yi Chenzi coming?"
"Yi Chengzi is known to be the number one among all Martial Saints among the Subordinate Countries, of course he will come."
"Number one Martial Saint?" Qin Wushuang sneered, "During the battle outside the Purple Flame territory, I did not see how special he was. Isn’t the title of number one Martial Saint too easy to get?"
The two martial saints looked at each other. That yellow robed Martial Saint said with surprise: "You had fought with Yi Chenzi?"
"We fought a friendly match with each other. If we didn’t, do you think the West Chu would have give up and retreat from the Purple Flame Territory? At that time, when the West Chu invaded my border, how come none of you stepped out to say that it was against the rules? Could it be, after so much talking, you are scared of Yi Chenzi and felt that my Bai Yue is a pushover! Right?"
With a stomach full of anger, Qin Wushuang asked a stream of questions and made these two look at each speechlessly for a moment.
"I don’t care what rules you are making up and how many people are coming. I don’t even care how you guys are looking to resolve the difficult situation while leaving worries behind! The offender must die! This is my principle. My Martial Saint of the Bai Yue will not have died a meaningless death. And no one can step so easily onto the land of the Bai Yue. Since you have done this, you must pay for what you did. I don’t care who you are, don’t think you can get away!"
As Qin Wushuang spoke, he poured his power into the long whip. With only two sounds of "Ka Ka", the Emperor of the Great Wu suddenly waved his hands randomly and let out a cry of "Huo Huo".
Next, his neck went soft as Qin Wushuang twisted it. He had died completely.
"You really killed him?"
Showing an expressionless face, Qin Wushuang threw the body away and said with determination: "So what if I have killed him? If you want to fight for justice, then come up. I will give some suggestions to you, all the troubles came from being greedy. If you don’t want to bring trouble to yourself and don’t want me to cause trouble to your imperial capitals, then go back! The grudge between the Bai Yue and the Great Wu will be resolved by our two countries. None of you can serve to mediate this grudge nor do you have the authorization to do it!"
After he had finished speaking, with a long whistle, he rolled his body and rushed outside rapidly.
