“Monarch.” Upon seeing the Evil Emperor bringing the bandits away, there were experts walking towards the Jialan Monarch, staring at him in puzzlement.
The other party were bandits, although they couldn’t suppress them, there was no way they could allow them to leave so freely, right? If this was made known to the Lifire Palace, the Lifire Empyrean would definitely punish the Jialan Monarch.
“Something is wrong. They don’t seem to be here specifically to plunder the Purple Cloud Mine.” The Jialan Monarch narrowed his eyes. He took out his messaging crystal and very swiftly, it vibrated as a voice rang out in his head.
“Monarch, our Flowing Sand Mine and Heavenfall Mine just got attacked by bandits!”
“RUMBLE!” A violent aura gushed forth from the Jialan Monarch. He instantly flew forward, moving towards the city closest to here. The Flowing Sand and Heavenfall Mines were two out of the three main mines he was responsible for.
He did anticipate that bandits would attack the Purple Cloud Mine on the day where the exit spatial gate opens. Hence, he was lying in ambush here. To think that the true targets of the bandits were the two other mines instead!
What a good diversion tactic. Since this is the case, the powerful forces of the bandit group here weren’t their entire strength. How strong were they exactly?
After the Night Empyrean was killed back then, did he leave behind some of his vile spawns who had fortunately survived the purge? After the Jialan Monarch arrived at the city closest to the Purple Cloud Mine, he discovered that the teleportation arrays here leading to the emperor palace were damaged too. Clearly, this was a deliberate provocation that was planned long in advance.
As expected as a surviving vile spawn of the nefarious Night Empyrean. The Jialan Emperor had a heavy look on his face. He knew that he would soon have to face great pressure from the Lifire Palace.
As for Ye Qianyu’s group, things were the same as the previous time. The bandits respectively got off at different stops, silently disappearing from view. No conversation was necessary, all of them were in tacit agreement. Ye Qianyu, Qin Wentian and the others then returned to the Thousand Feathers Palace in Heavenly City.
“Qin Wentian, you didn’t use your full strength to kill enemies. You clearly could kill that initial-stage immortal emperor but why did you not do it?” As they returned, Qin Wentian’s features returned to normal. The Barbarian Emperor immediately start to berate him.
Qin Wentian coldly glanced at him, “I still want to ask you what your true intentions are. You clearly know that she is my senior sister, yet you purposely want her to fight with me. If I wasn’t held back by this, I naturally could kill more people. What is the meaning behind your actions?”
“Palace mistress, Qin Wentian’s senior sister is someone from the Lifire Palace. His heart will not be with us sooner or later.” The Barbarian Emperor coldly snorted, staring at Ye Qianyu.
“A`mun, since I dared to use him, I naturally would have considered everything. Also, Qin Wentian has already fought with us and even killed an immortal emperor from their side. What problems can there be?” Ye Qianyu calmly spoke. “A`mun, you should return to your residence first. After we get the treasures from the mines, I will help you to forge an even better emperor-ranked weapon.”
“Many thanks palace mistress.” The Barbarian Emperor clasped his hands and shot an icy glance at Qin Wentian before he took his leave. Ye Qianyu and Qin Wentian were after all, returning to the same place as Qin Wentian was staying in Ye Qianyu’s personal palace…
Inside the palace, Qin Wentian stared at Ye Qianyu as he asked, “Palace mistress, what was the purpose of our plunder this time around?”
He naturally discovered that this operation was not usual. Hence, he couldn’t help but to ask now.
Ye Qianyu’s earlier solemn look melted away as a charming smile appeared on her face. She didn’t reply to Qin Wentian. Her soulful eyes regarded him and spoke, “Your little lover is truly beautiful and is extremely powerful. So it turns out that you are in love with such ice beauties.”
Qin Wentian had a speechless look on his face but he didn’t explain anything. There was no way to explain things to this vixen.
“Don’t worry. Although we clashed head-on earlier and didn’t gain any harvest, overall, we seized enough cultivation resources for a hundred years from the other two mines.” Ye Qianyu laughed. “The Jialan Monarch controls a total of three great mines. They are the Purple Cloud Mine we attacked, and the Flowing Sand Mine, as well as the Heavenfall Mine. While we were attacking the Purple Cloud Mine, I sent two more groups to attack the Flowing Sand and Heavenfall Mines. Tell me, if immortal emperors led immortal kings to plunder a mine, how many guards stationed at the mines would be able to stop them?”
Qin Wentian stared at the smile on Ye Qianyu’s face as his heart pounded lightly. The attack this time around was to mask her true targets. What an audacious plan. Qin Wentian couldn’t help but to smile bitterly. This bandit leader was no minor bandit. Has he already boarded onto the pirate ship?
Staring at the bitter smile on Qin Wentian’s face, Ye Qianyu giggled, “Right now, you can’t even leave if you want to. Do you regret it? Do you want me to get someone to forge two emperor-ranked weapons for you? Tell me what divine weapons you want.”
Qin Wentian shook his head, the bitter smile on his face was still there. Ye Qianyu blinked, “Could it be that you are angry because I didn’t inform you about this earlier?”
“I don’t dare.” Qin Wentian shook his head. This was the first time he participated in a bandit operation. It was only normal that Ye Qianyu didn’t tell him the full plan.
“Are you really angry? Could it be that you want me to marry myself to you? You can just say it if that’s what you want. Who knows? I might really agree to that.” Ye Qianyu coquettishly smiled at him. That gaze filled with charm caused Qin Wentian’s ability to resist to be severely weakened. When he saw Ye Qianyu moving closer and closer to him, Qin Wentian was about to start sobbing, “Palace mistress, I’ll go and focus on my cultivation now.”
As he spoke, he started to turn around and hasten away, running towards his cultivation platform.
“If you are in love with ice beauties, I can change my demeanor and make it colder.” Ye Qianyu called out while laughing as she stared at the fleeing Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian stumbled and almost fell to the ground. Could he really still focus on his cultivation in the future…?
The Flowing Sand and the Heavenfall Mine were plundered and the guards there were all annihilated. A majority of the excavated stones were all taken away by the bandits. As for the person responsible for these two mines, the Jialan Monarch, he didn’t appear at all. He only showed up after the bandits plundered the mines and by the time he came, all bandits had already disappeared.
This matter caused a large commotion in the Lifire Palace. The Lifire Empyrean was extremely enraged and sent people there to investigate. The Jialan Monarch headed to the Lifire Palace to apologize. In the Lifire Palace, several monarchs who had always been in opposition to the Jialan Monarch, accused him of failing in his duties and beseeched the empyrean to remove him from his post. But ultimately, the Lifire Empyrean still decided to give him a chance, telling him to investigate this manner completely and he has to find the bandits regardless of the cost. If his strength wasn’t sufficient to suppress and annihilate them, he can apply for reinforcements from the Lifire Palace after he has found the bandits.
Only then did this matter came to a close. The Jialan Monarch started his investigation. However, the bandit group left no clues for him and how could they jump out involuntarily to confess that it was them who plundered the two mines? They would definitely lay low for a period of time or might even retire completely.
Just like what the Jialan Monarch anticipated, Ye Qianyu’s group of bandits wouldn’t act again within a short period of time.
As for Qin Wentian, he was prepared to head to the emperor city for his meeting with Beiming Youhuang. After Ye Qianyu learned of it, she actually wanted to tag along. Qin Wentian was speechless and naturally decisively objected. What a joke, an immortal emperor of such beauty tagging along would definitely be too conspicuous. Did this woman not know of her own status? The daughter of the Night Empyrean, the leader of a group of bandits. She still wanted to go to the Jialan Emperor City? What a crazy person.
Although Qin Wentian adamantly objected, his objection was naturally ineffective…
Hence, one day, a strange group appeared in the Jialan Emperor City.
A young man with an extraordinary aura walked around the emperor city. This was naturally none other than Qin Wentian who had changed his facial features. Despite so, his demeanour remained unchanged and was extremely attractive. However, the passersby on the street only took a casual glance at him before tossing him to the back of their minds. This was because the person beside him was simply too dazzling.
Ye Qianyu was clad in a phoenix dress today, which further accentuated her perfect figure. Her bright smile and charming eyes radiated a radiance that drew the attention of others. Her snow-white skin and alluring figure was truly a sight pleasing to the eyes.
What was even more mesmerizing was that there was a slit in her dress, revealing her perfect long and sexy legs, adding to her mesmerizing aura.
However, nobody dared to antagonize her because when their immortal senses swept past her, they couldn’t ascertain her cultivation base. Clearly, she had a higher cultivation compared to them.
But such an alluring maiden with no flaws was actually locking arms with that young man. Her smile was extremely charming and there was a blessed look on her face. But what was strange was that the young man had a cold expression on his face like he wanted to beat someone up… This scene seemed a little incongruous. Many people felt the impulse to rush and beat Qin Wentian up, tossing him by the roadside to replace him and lock arms with the beautiful maiden.
They were cursing this bastard in their hearts. Living in such fortune, yet he still had a cold expression on his face? What did he mean by this? He doesn’t know how to cherish beauty? Why did he look like he was forced to lock arms with her? He is simply a bastard…
Qin Wentian truly felt like beating someone up. It was fine that this vixen came, but could she be more low-profile about it? What was she wearing? Why was she wearing so provocatively? Is she trying to attract more attention? This bandit lord was actually so out in the open now, Qin Wentian really felt the urge to cry.
He initially wanted to keep a low profile but it seems that his plan was destined to end up in failure. Everyone who passed by them clearly took note of them.
“Can you let go of me…” Qin Wentian gritted his teeth and transmitted his voice over. He could feel the warmth of her arm. Right now, he felt very miserable, extremely miserable.
“Am I not beautiful?” Ye Qianyu had a doleful look in her eyes as she stared at Qin Wentian. Such a look was capable of instantly causing someone’s heart to soften.
She was not not beautiful, but was too overly beautiful!
Qin Wentian completely gave up when he saw that look. He knew that it was useless. There was no way for him to stop anything this vixen wanted to do.
Under the moonlight, the scenery of the lake was beautiful to the extreme. The dragon boats sailed leisurely on the water, accompanied by sounds of zither music. In the various pavilions beautiful maidens could be seen dancing as well, it was truly a beautiful and relaxing sight.
Qin Wentian sat on a dragon boat as he extended his immortal sense outwards. Beside him, Ye Qianyu laid down in a carefree manner with her head on his shoulder. Her perfect figure was truly tempting to the extreme, causing many dragon boats to start gathering around Qin Wentian just for a glance at this beauty. Although these people didn’t dare to disturb them directly, they felt that there was nothing wrong for them to look.
Qin Wentian’s peak-stage immortal king aura instantly gushed forth, permeating the surroundings. He radiated coldness as he spoke, “Scram!”
After that, many dragon boats surrounding his all drift away. Ye Qianyu’s eyes flashed with a bright light when she saw this. She giggled, “Why? Are you jealous when you see so many people looking at me?”
Qin Wentian gritted his teeth, He glanced at the excellent figure lying beside him. He didn’t know why but when he saw many people looking at Ye Qianyu, although the emotion he felt couldn’t measure up to jealousy, he felt pretty uncomfortable about it. Maybe, this was the innate nature of males.
“Why don’t you woo me then? If you do so, I will only let you alone look at me. You can stare at me as long as you want to.” Ye Qianyu had a charming smile on her face. Her long hair fluttered in the wind, that mesmerizing face of hers was extremely beautiful under the moonlight.
“Palace mistress, please spare me.” Qin Wentian transmitted his voice over. If this continued, someone would surely die.
At this very moment, an immortal sense ‘bumped’ into Qin Wentian’s immortal sense. After that, Qin Wentian felt his body growing cold and he hurriedly opened his eyes. He then directed the dragon boat towards a certain direction. From afar, an extremely beautiful ice beauty could be seen standing on a different dragon boat. Under the moonlight, she seemed like a goddess, similarly attracting the attention of several people. Yet, the eyes of this ice beauty were fixed upon Qin Wentian and Ye Qianyu.
Ye Qianyu was as though she sensed something. She smiled widely and actually laid down with her head resting on Qin Wentian’s thigh. Qin Wentian’s gaze instantly froze! “This…” Qin Wentian lowered his head and stared at the excellent creature resting her head on his thigh. Ye Qianyu had a smile on her face as she stared at the dragon boat drifting towards them from afar, she was smiling at the ice beauty on that boat. From her smile, Qin Wentian could see the hints of a playful tease within.
He couldn’t help but to perspire cold sweat. This woman has gone mad.
Beiming Youhuang’s expression was still as icy as ever. She naturally saw how Ye Qianyu was smiling at her. She looked at Ye Qianyu, her perfect figure simply laid beside Qin Wentian. All her contours were truly mesmerizing to the extreme. Although she was a female, Beiming Youhuang could strongly feel the charm exuded by Ye Qianyu. Let alone a male like Qin Wentian.
Inclining her head slightly, her eyes were like sharp blades of wind. Qin Wentian smiled bitterly. Although he had no relationship with Beiming Youhuang and didn’t need to explain anything, he couldn’t help but to feel an inexplicable sense of him doing something wrong.
This vixen’s actions were always illogical. This place was the emperor city governed by the Jialan Monarch yet she wore so provocatively, completely not afraid of attracting attention. You didn’t have the slightest clue what she wanted to do exactly.
“You invite me here just to see this scene?” A cold voice rang out in Qin Wentian’s mind. It was naturally Beiming Youhuang’s voice.
“Youhuang, if I tell you this vixen did this intentionally after she saw you, would you believe me?” Qin Wentian bitterly smiled, transmitting his voice back.
“It doesn’t matter if I believe it or not as we have no relationship between us. If you are fine, I shall leave then. Right now, your identity is a bandit, you shouldn’t stay for long in the emperor city.” Beiming Youhuang’s voice was still as cold as ever, having a sense of pushing Qin Wentian away. Qin Wentian didn’t know to laugh or cry, he weakly replied, “Are you…jealous?”
Beiming Youhuang’s beautiful eyes flashed as she coldly stared at Qin Wentian. After that, with a wave of her hand, her dragon boat started to sail in the opposite direction.
“Just a joke!” Qin Wentian was sweating now as he directed his boat to chase after her. After he caught up, he didn’t go over but chose to let his boat travel side by side with hers.
“Ignoring me after you met with your little lover?” Ye Qianyu giggled, causing Qin Wentian to start. She actually didn’t transmit her voice but chose to speak out instead.
“You’ve gone mad.” Qin Wentian lowered his head and looked at her. Could it be that she didn’t know if there were people observing them now, their actions would be extremely suspicious?
“Ai, seems like I’m not welcomed.” Ye Qianyu sighed with a hint of sorrow in her tone. After that, she sat up, “Alright then, I shall leave this time to you two. I shall go enjoy the lonely solitude alone.”
After speaking, her silhouette flashed as she flew through the air towards a pavilion. Over there, there were a few fairy maidens dancing, exuding incomparable charm. Ye Qianyu wasn’t polite at all as she descended right in the middle of them from the sky. She took off her shoes, revealing her fair white ankles as she started sashaying with her hips under the moonlight. Right now, she was more beautiful compared to a fairy in a portrait.
“What a beautiful woman.” For a period of time, the other experts travelling on dragon boats were all looking over there, attracted to Ye Qianyu.
“Natural fox-like charm, a truly excellent creature.” Everyone was completely mesmerized by her beautiful appearance, alluring figure, and snow-white skin. Just a glance caused them to be unable to divert their gazes away.
Qin Wentian stared at this scene dumbfoundedly. He really regretted. He shouldn’t have come here together with her.
“Your luck with the females is truly good. There are two beautiful women with such deep emotions for you in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. After you came to the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realm, there’s actually such a charming maiden accompanying you daily.” Beiming Youhuang coldly spoke. Although she said that Qin Wentian’s luck with females was good, her tone was filled with a touch of heavy sarcasm.
“Youhuang, I have always been worried about your safety through these years. Are you well?” Qin Wentian knew he couldn’t explain things clearly, hence he didn’t bother to try.
“Oh? With such an excellent creature that’s also at the immortal emperor level to accompany you, you present such an awesome sight even when being a bandit. Are you sure you have the time to think about me?” Beiming Youhuang’s voice was as cold as ever.
“Eh…” Qin Wentian glanced at Beiming Youhuang who was beside him. He only saw that her eyes were fixed on Ye Qianyu who was dancing under the moonlight. She basically didn’t spare a glance at him at all.
Ye Qianyu was floating as she danced, attracting the attention of everyone here. The fairy maidens dancing below her were already exceptionally beautiful. But at this moment, nobody was staring at them. All of them had their attention fixed on Ye Qianyu.
Her dance seemed to contain a magical power, drawing people into it.
Qin Wentian also couldn’t avert his gaze. He was completely stunned by this excellent creature, Ye Qianyu. There were many beauties in the immortal realms and he has seen all sorts of sexy dances before. But even so, Ye Qianyu’s beauty when she was dancing, had truly exceeded all of his expectations.
Right now, the scene was incomparably quiet. Everyone was watching in enjoyment under the soft and gentle glow of the moon. When the moonlight shone upon her, Ye Qianyu seemed to be the only one in this entire space. Only her dance mattered.
The fairy maidens in the pavillion stopped and exited. They similarly were looking at Ye Qianyu in admiration. That was a true dance, it didn’t seem to originate from the mortal world. Even for women, they had no way to shift their gazes away and were instantly attracted, unable to extricate themselves.
That spiralling dance was so agile, the swaying of the hips exuded mesmerization. Her long hair fluttering in the wind spoke of an unquestionable charm. Each and every scene branded themselves deeply into the minds of everyone present.
Qin Wentian suddenly saw Ye Qianyu smiling at him. Just that single smile had entered straight into his soul, causing him to involuntarily tremble.
Beiming Youhuang was in a daze as well. A moment later, she shifted her gaze towards Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian was clearly immersed in watching the dance, unable to extricate himself from him. She sighed softly, given Ye Qianyu’s beauty, it was no wonder he couldn’t resist. There shouldn’t be any males who could resist such a beautiful maiden. Also, Ye Qianyu wasn’t simply beautiful, she was extremely charming as well.
“Why did you arrange to meet me here today?” Beiming Youhuang no longer mocked Qin Wentian but seriously asked instead. Qin Wentian woke up from his daze. He transmitted his voice to Beiming Youhuang, “Back then when I was sent to the mine, I didn’t expect over ten years would have passed by before we met again. I’m worried that you would be at an disadvantage at Jialan Monarch’s side. Although I heard that you gained the favor of the Lifire Empyrean, I still couldn’t set my heart at ease. Hence, I wanted to see you.”
A strange light flashed in Beiming Youhuang’s beautiful eyes. She then transmitted her voice back in reply, “I’m doing pretty well. The Lifire Empyrean personally ordered me to be at the Jialan Monarch’s side to help him. But in truth, I’m considered as someone on the same level as the Jialan Monarch. He wouldn’t dare to do anything to me.”
Qin Wentian nodded lightly, “In that case, I can rest my heart at ease. Given your talent and beauty, no matter where you go, you would surely be heavily favored. Beauties would always be appreciated, let alone someone like you with breath-taking beauty.”
“Are you praising me?” Beiming Youhuang quietly spoke.
“Naturally.” Qin Wentian nodded.
“Compared to her, how am I?” Beiming Youhuang glanced at the dancing figure and asked. But after the words left her mouth, she instantly berated herself silently, why did she ask such a question? Could it be that she was provoked by Ye Qianyu’s beauty?
“Both of you are rare beauties and each has different aspects where you all excel in. She is like the beautiful temptress under the moon, capable of mesmerizing every living being. As for you, you are like the goddess of the moon, your beauty is sacred, holy, not to be profane. There’s no need for any comparison.” Qin Wentian smiled.
Beiming Youhuang didn’t say anything in response to that. She continued, “Then, are you prepared to continue being a bandit? Could it be that you don’t know what status bandits have in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms? You won’t be able to face others with your true face and would even encounter endless waves of people trying to hunt you down. Given your talent, even if you left now and quit being a bandit, you can still soar high in the future. You can go to other locations to temper yourself and even join any of the superpowers here.”
Qin Wentian sighed silently. He glanced ahead. When Beiming Youhuang conversed with him about this, he suddenly realized why Ye Qianyu treated him so well.
Even if he had no intentions towards her, but given how good she has treated him, could he really leave so carefreely just like that?
Humans ultimately are not creatures with no emotions. They couldn’t sever all relationships easily. If he wanted to leave, he would wait until he repaid Ye Qianyu for her kindness before he did so.
Beiming Youhuang seemed to have understood something when she saw Qin Wentian’s expression. Ultimately, all heroes would fall to beauties.
“I understand.” Beiming Youhuang spoke in a light voice. Qin Wentian bitterly smile. Did she really understand?
Clearly, she didn’t But Qin Wentian didn’t bother to explain. He and Beiming Youhuang didn’t really have that kind of relationship in any case. They were only here together because of the old freak. Before this, Beiming Youhuang could take care of him due to her strength. But now after his cultivation base was restored, there was no need for Beiming Youhuang to protect him anymore.
A messaging crystal appeared in Beiming Youhuang’s hand. Qin Wentian stared for a moment before he understood. He then sent a strand of immortal sense into her crystal while he also took out his own. Beiming Youhuang did the same as him and sent a strand of her immortal sense into his messaging crystal. In this manner, they would be able to contact each other easily in the future.
“Monarch.” Upon seeing the Evil Emperor bringing the bandits away, there were experts walking towards the Jialan Monarch, staring at him in puzzlement.
