Ancient Godly Monarch Chapter 2000
In the Heaven Vault, numerous floating palaces could be seen bathing in starlight, they were all incomparably majestic.
At this moment, the Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden arrived outside a floating palace. This floating palace was in the absolute center and was none other than Qin Wentian’s residence. Outside the palace, guards could be seen here. Right now, the number of people in the Heaven Vault was much more than before. This particular palace was a place where no one could disturb easily. After all, this palace was the residence for Qin Wentian, his family, and his closest friends.
The Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden stared at the two guards outside the palace. One of them radiated devil might and was akin to a devil god while the other radiated an intense battle intent. Their existences caused the hearts of the Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden to tremble fiercely.
Because, these two guards were actually heavenly deities.
Heavenly deities acting as guards? Who else in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms could use deities as guards?
They, with their identities of being the Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden, naturally have seen many things before. There weren’t too many things that would shock them but this trip to the Heaven Vault already caused them to be shocked even before they met Qin Wentian earlier.
And now seeing the heavenly deities acting as guards, they didn’t know what to say.
This meant that currently, the number of heavenly deities in the Heaven Vault was already…
When they thought of this, their hearts trembled once more. They tried their best to endure their shock as they walked into the floating palace.
On their way in, they encountered some people and things were just like how they imagined. The people they met were all at the heavenly deity realm. It was like in this place, heavenly deities were like mortals. There were simply too many of them.
Finally, they came to a location and finally saw Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian smiled at them, “Sect Leader and Mystical Maiden came from afar, please forgive me for not being able to head out to welcome you both.”
The two of them surveyed Qin Wentian. Right now, Qin Wentian’s magnificence was even greater compared to the past. With a single glance at him, he gave off a feeling of unfathomable mystery. Back then, he was already the number one genius in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms that could suppress the Thunder Clan Leader. Now, his cultivation base must have grown even stronger to the point where it was hard to imagine. But there’s no doubt that he was more than sufficiently strong enough to deal with the two of them. With regard to this point, this was still something they could accept.
The Qiankun Sect Leader smiled bitterly. Earlier, he still felt a trace of unhappiness because Qin Wentian just sent out his voice instead of going out to receive them as he felt that Qin Wentian didn’t give them respect. But after he came here, that unhappiness vanished completely. He truly could feel that right now, Qin Wentian’s position was no longer the same as before, on a different level from them. Him being willing to meet with them was already a sign of respect. If not, given their betrayal of the alliance back then, so what if Qin Wentian didn’t want to meet them? Qin Wentian didn’t even need to be too polite with them.
“Take a seat.” Qin Wentian stretched out his hand in invitation. The Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavenly Mystical Maiden nodded their heads lightly and sat before Qin Wentian. Beside him, a beautiful maiden walked over to pour the tea. This young woman exuded a pure sense of beauty like she was someone from a portrait. What made the Qiankun Sect Leader and the Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden shocked was her current cultivation. This young woman who was pouring tea for them was actually a heavenly deity too.
They felt that the majority of people in this particular floating palace were all heavenly deities.
“Sect Leader Qin, this young woman is an outstanding beauty. I wonder who is she?” The Qiankun Sect Leader attempted to probe, wanting to know the identity of this young woman.
“I’m a maid serving the sect leader and am in charge of the internal matters here in this palace.” The beautiful maiden blinked her eyes with some mischievousness. The Qiankun Sect Leader perspired. A heavenly deity as a maid… he felt his heart pounding faster.
“Sect Leader, don’t listen to this lass talking nonsense. Her name is Nanfeng Shengge and is one of my good friends. I knew her back in Azure Mystic.” Qin Wentian rolled his eyes at Nanfeng Shengge. Nanfeng Shengge didn’t mind at all and gave him a mischievous smile.
“So this is the case.” The Qiankun Sect Leader nodded his head lightly but he was sighing in his heart. Truly, this was a case of when a person achieved the dao, everyone around him would rise to the skies. Even his subordinates and good friends from Azure Mystic were deities now.
Was the Heaven Vault really so mystical?
He was thinking that if they hadn’t quit the alliance back then, would an army of deities have also appeared in his Qiankun Sect?
“Sect Leader Qin, the flow of time in this floating Palace should he different from the outside world, right? I can sense some differences.” The Nine Heavens Mystical Maidens asked curiously. How could she not be extremely shocked as well? Even a young maiden from Azure Mystic has already become a heavenly deity. Other than cultivating in this cultivation sacred ground which was the Heaven Vault, the amount of time was also an important factor.
“Currently, the flow of time in here has roughly reached 1,000 times.” Qin Wentian laughed. The Mystical Maiden nodded her head. No wonder. The Heaven Vault possessed an extremely favourable advantage allowing people to comprehend their daos on their respective constellations. That, in addition to the change in the flow of time, a short time might have passed outside while a long time passed in here. Now, they could already be certain that heavenly deities weren’t a rare sight at all in the Heaven Vault. They were commonly seen everywhere.
The Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden exchanges a mutual glance. They came here initially wanting to discuss some conditions but right now, all their confidence was wiped away. It seems that with the addition of them or not, it made no difference for the current Heaven Vault.
“Wentian, for some of the matters in the past, we were also helpless about it then. I’m sure you know about the strength of the western world. That godking has never appeared at all and that by itself is already a great threat. Back then, they told us to leave the alliance, we were truly helpless to resist…” the Qiankun Sect Leader slowly spoke. Qin Wentian waved his hands to stop him from continuing to speak. He smiled, “Sect Leader, there’s no need to explain anything about that matter. With regards to that, I understand everything and can comprehend your reasons. In any case, I have also fought together with Sect Leader and Fairy before. I naturally wouldn’t care about such a matter.”
If humans don’t act for the sake of themselves, the heavens would fall. The Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden didn’t make a mistake by choosing that choice. They did it for the sake of their sects. No one would have wanted to directly defy the western world.
“Since this is the case, I can set my heart at ease.” The Qiankun Sect Leader nodded lightly. Qin Wentian lifted his tea cup and took a sip, he didn’t say anything. He believed that the Qiankun Sect Leader and Mystical Maiden didn’t come here together just to apologize to him. If they wanted to do so, they would have already come earlier. Why was there a need to wait until now?
Hence, at this moment, Qin Wentian decided to wait for the Qiankun Sect Leader to speak.
As expected, after falling silent for a period of time, the Qiankun Sect Leader spoke. “Sect Leader Qin, our purpose for this trip, other than offering our apology, we also hope that we can form an alliance with the Heaven Vault again.”
“Alliance?” Jun Mengchen at the side frowned. “Do you think that given the current strength of our Heaven Vault, we would still need the Qiankun Sect to ally with us? In addition, what’s the use of an ally that would forsake you the moment things go south?”
“This…” The Qiankun Sect Leader had an awkward look on his face but he had no way to refute Jun Mengchen’s words. Although the words were ugly, Jun Mengchen’s words were the truth. Before he and the mystical maiden came by, they were confident that the Heaven Vault needed their strength. But after they entered the Heaven Vault, their confidence melted into nothing.
But precisely because of that they saw the current strength of the Heaven Vault clearly now, their determination to form an alliance strengthened even more.
Right now, the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms were in a tripartite situation. The positions of their Qiankun Sect and Nine Heavens Mystical Palace was somewhat awkward. Maybe, they didn’t need to proclaim their allegiance to one of the three factions and might be able to peacefully wait in silence for one of the three factions to emerge in triumph. But, what would happen after that day arrived? Would there still be any place for their sects?
The western world wanted the entire world to believe in the buddhist path, gathering their faith. Once they became the ultimate king of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, would there still be any place for them left?
If Yue Changkong won, that would be even more terrifying. In the past, Godking Gu was known to be someone with a strange and evil character. If he became the ultimate king, the Qiankun Sect and the Nine Heavens Mystical Palace would surely have dire endings.
Out of all three factions, they could only trust in Qin Wentian’s character. They hoped that Qin Wentian would be able to become the victor. Also, after they entered the Heaven Vault, they felt that the chance of the Heaven Vault becoming the final victor was very great.
Since they supported Qin Wentian to win, it would naturally be better to join him before victory is determined than later. At that time, if they joined him then, that would no longer be an alliance. It would be them submitting to him. Their statuses would be completely different.
And just by seeing Jun Mengchen’s attitude, they knew for sure that the people around Qin Wentian would definitely look down on them once the Heaven Vault is victorious. If they joined now, they could still fight together.
This time around, Qin Wentian didn’t stop Jun Mengchen. Seems like although Qin Wentian didn’t hate them for quitting the alliance, it wasn’t going to be so easy for him to accept them again.
“We were wrong in the past. If war truly occurs between the three grand factions, we shall aid the Heaven Vault with the fullest of our abilities. Our fates are tied together.” The Qiankun Sect Leader spoke.
“It’s easy to talk. What if someone comes to persuade you two when we are fighting against the other two factions, wanting you all to betray us? Senior brother, we have to be on our guard against them. It already happened once before.” Jun Mengchen spoke.
“Your words are too overboard.” The Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden stared at Jun Mengchen. “We are not like those types of people.”
“Whether you are or not, words alone cannot prove it.” Jun Mengchen calmly spoke. Qin Wentian turned his gaze to Nanfeng Shengge who was at the side as he asked, “Shengge, what do you think?”
Nanfeng Shengge smiled good naturedly. “Shengge absolutely believes in the sincerity and character of both the Qiankun Sect Leader and Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden. But after all, an unhappy thing has once happened in the past. It’s highly impossible for the Heaven Vault to accept the two of them again completely without reservations in their hearts. If Sect Leader and Mystical Maiden is really keen to be with us, you all can lead your men and enter the Qin Heavenly Divine Sect, joining us completely, becoming one of the official branches. In the future, we can observe the performance of Sect Leader and Mystical Maiden before we decide to let the experts of both your branches to enter the Heaven Vault for cultivation or not. If not, once the strength of your sects increased and unhappy matters occur once again, it would be a calamity to our Heaven Vault.”
“This…” the Qiankun Sect Leader had an unhappy expression on his face.
Qin Wentian smiled, “Sect Leader, Fairy. Let’s not speak about such unhappy matters for now. No matter what, we had once fought on the battlefield together. Even if my faction truly becomes the ultimate king of the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms in the future, we would never make things difficult for you two.”
The Qiankun Sect Leader and the Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden silently sighed in their hearts. Qin Wentian had already silently agreed to Nanfeng Shengge’s words. After all, they did quit the alliance out of their initiative in the first place. If Qin Wentian were to accept them like before, there would definitely be many who would be unhappy.
The Heaven Vault now was no longer the Heaven Vault of the past. It was one of the three great factions today.
After that, they chatted idly for some time. The Qiankun Sect Leader and the Nine Heavens Mystical Maiden then bid their farewell. When they departed, they inclined their heads and stared up in the air. The Qiankun Sect Leader sighed, he had a feeling like he was past his prime. The era has changed. The current heavens no longer belonged to them any more.
Many days later, news was circulated through the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms. The Qiankun Sect and Nine Heavens Mystical Palace has relocated to the Qin Heavenly Divine Sect.
But this time, it wasn’t an alliance. They have submitted and joined the Qin Heavenly Divine Sect as one of the official branches!
