AGM 428 – Meteoric Rise

It had already been over twenty years, and the baby that he once held in his arms had already grown up into a real man. With determination in his heart, disregarding life and death, dragging the demon sword a hundred thousand miles towards the Pill Emperor Hall.

What more could he ask for?

Looking at the demonic divinity great roc, the eyes of this mysterious man were filled with gentleness as well as deep emotions.

He desperately wanted very much to act way before this; however, he once promised him that he would never ever do so. Qin Wentian’s life would be his own to walk. Only then one day, Qin Wentian would be able to depend on his own strength to support the piece of sky he had achieved.

If Qin Wentian grew up underneath their care, then whenever Qin Wentian ran into danger, he might always look to them for protection, instead of fighting on his own, achieving strength with his own efforts.

The he back then, how lofty had he stood, how awe-inspiring was he? How could his child ever be mediocre? Growing under the protection of others instead of his own strength?

Today, it was only because he heard the rumors of a young man dragging the demon sword for a hundred thousand miles that he chose to appear here to take a look. Looking at that baby he once held in his arms, he finally saw a shadow of that man he respected.

He was happy and gratified.

There were so many more trials waiting for this child in his future. Since he knew what sort of storms and tempests the child had to experience, he had no choice but to allow the child to be tempered by the fires of the world, walking step by step and confronting them directly, alone, even in the face of death.

Life was a long, long path. Today, when he solely barged into the Pill Emperor Hall, although he might die here, wasn’t this also a brand new beginning? A rebirth in the flames of nirvana?

And even though he had been here since the beginning, not one person could sense his existence. Everyone’s attention was drawn by the great roc and Qing`er’s appearance. The only one who could sense him was that evil skeleton down at the bottom of abyss.

Right now, the bone fragments in the sea of corpses joined together and formed a gigantic skeletal arm, shooting straight towards the mysterious man.

And as the mysterious man shifted his gaze over to the bottom of the abyss, ice-cold fire could be seen burning in his eyes when he stared at the sea of skeletal remains.

As he slowly stepped towards the gigantic skeletal arm, each and every step he took caused the entire space to vibrate.

As though his steps formed a mysterious resonance with the world.


The light sound of a foot step crackled. As a thunderous shock wave shattered the gigantic skeletal arm, the resounding impact rocked the bottom of the abyss, instantly turning all of the withered skeletons into a cloud of dust. That mysterious figure had his hands held behind his back, as he gazed at the cave dwelling the monstrous existence was in. In the direction of that cave dwelling, there was also a terrifying fluctuation of energy, a palpable sense of undeath.

“Peng…” Yet another crisp sound echoed as the entire cave dwelling shattered into pieces. Over there, a shimmering figure could be seen, as handsome as the devil, yet as young as a teenager. His skin was sparkling clear, yet the eyes of that shimmering figure glinted with an extremely terrifying crimson light. Inclining his head and staring at the mysterious figure in the air, the monster spat out, “Who are you?”

As the sound of the monster’s voice faded, terrifying chains appeared in the air and fired towards that mysterious figure. The fearsome chains directly bound him, as the evil flames, born of the aura of undeath, combusted violently.

Yet, the mysterious figure merely calmly took another step downwards; his hands still crossed behind his back, completely disregarding the flames. “Kacha!” The chains shattered, the evil flames still burned, yet it did nothing to impede his movements.

Above the skies, yet another resplendent constellation was birthed. It not only enveloped this sacred land, but that constellation also enveloped the entirety of the vast Pill Emperor Hall.

At that moment, it seemed as though the Pill Emperor Hall had been totally separated from the external world. Nobody could see clearly what was happening within.

“What’s going on? Another constellation manifestation?”

The spectators inclined their heads, their faces filled with endless shock. The two Ascendants belonging to the Pill Emperor Hall was already badly injured. Who was the one that manifest this constellation?

Those from the Chen Clan, Hua Clan and Star-Seizing Manor had long retreated from the Pill Emperor Hall, yet their perception had never deviated from it, even for a single second. But now, they could no longer ‘see’ anything that was happening inside.

Earlier, they only felt a supreme might pervading the atmosphere, as a mysterious figure appeared in the air. He simply stood there, with his hands behind his back, yet the imposing presence he emanated seemed as though he was shouldering the entire heavens.

Who was that person?

Why had that person come?

Nobody knew, not even Qin Wentian and Qing`er. And right now, Qin Wentian was already unconscious; he wasn’t aware of the things that’s happening right now.

Qing`er was still carrying Qin Wentian on her back. Her beautiful eyes stared at the constellation at the air.  A powerful spatial energy enveloped her and Qin Wentian, as a wind kicked up from where they were. At this moment, she only wanted to bring Qin Wentian away to leave this god-forsaken place.


The spatial waves were directly disrupted, the energy emanated by the constellation locked down this entire space. Even if her insights into space were more powerful, there was no way for her to leave this place.

Her gaze contained hints of ice as she stared at the constellation in the sky, as though she was extremely infuriated by it.

“Hey little doll, you are really not bad.” A voice drifted directly into Qing`er’s ears. Only she could hear this voice transmission.

Qing`er frowned; after which, she saw a lazy looking old man appearing from the constellation in the middle of the air, languidly gazing at the scene playing out below.

He didn’t do anything. He only used the powerful energy fluctuations from his constellation to seal the entire Pill Emperor Hall away.

“You are?

The Pill Emperor, as well as that ancient elder, both turned ashen when they stared at that blurry silhouette in the air. Now that they were heavily injured, just the mere presence of energy fluctuations from the constellation in the sky was able to severely suppress them.

They had never imagined that the Pill Emperor Palace would have so many legendary characters gathering here. Aside from them, there were actually other terrifying existences at the Celestial Phenomenon Realm appearing here.

“Who are you guys? Why have you come to my Pill Emperor Hall?”

The silhouette in the middle of the air didn’t reply, he directly ignored the Pill Emperor.

That lazy-looking man gently landed on the stone platform, glancing at Mo Qingcheng while shaking his head and sighing.

Down in the location of the shattered cave dwelling, that monstrous youth was also staring at the new constellation in the sky. His expression grew incredibly ugly as he asked, “You still have helpers with you?”

“Helper? Even if you are at your full strength, killing you is as easy as flipping my palms, let alone now when you are just a half-alive monster that crawled out of the grave, borrowing the life of others.” The mysterious figure casually stretched out a palm as a supreme formless energy shook the entire place. It was as though he could even control the motion of the Heavens and the Earth.

“Sealing the mountains here to absorb their celestial qi to purify the life force you stolen? Abominable being, face your death!”

With a clench of his fist, the surrounding mountains around the abyss all fragmented and collapsed in an instant, before turning into motes of dust and floating away, carried by the wind.

The monstrous youth turned pale upon witnessing that. After the surrounding mountains shattered, black chains could be seen embedded in them, chaining them all together to produce the sealing effect. Yet right now, cracks simultaneously appeared on those black chains, as they exploded an instant later.

Everything turned to dust. Nothing could escape this swath of destruction.

If the Pill Emperor had this strength, he would have long smashed Qin Wentian into meat paste, even if he had the demon sword with him. Shattering everything with a clench of his fist…how powerful was that? Qin Wentian wouldn’t have been able to block it.

That formless energy shot towards the monstrous youth. He hesitated no longer, stomping on the ground, immediately seeking to escape.

“Can you even escape?”

That mysterious figure stretched his hand out and tightly clenched it once again. The will of his mandate directly exploded the mysterious youth; the monstrous youth’s flesh and blood turned into fragments, as the core of his body transformed back into a skeleton.

Yet, that monster was still not dead. It emanated fearsome evil energy while continuing to frenziedly escape.


That mysterious figure brought his palms together in a resounding clap. That skeleton shattered into eight pieces, yet it still clung on to life, as it continued to run away.

At this moment, a fourth constellation appeared in the skies. The resplendent light of this constellation shone down; the cold silvery light burning the bone fragments of the evil existence, melting it down into a puddle of liquid before evaporating it completely, stealing the last vestige of its unnatural life away.

The old ancestor of the Pill Emperor Hall schemed his way through death and tried all methods to rebirth, but today, because of Qin Wentian, and his love for Mo Qingcheng, as well as the machinations of Luo He and the Pill Emperor, his last desperate attempt to cling to life had disappeared forever.

That mysterious figure flicked his sleeves, directing the astral light from his constellation to fill every crevice of this god-forsaken land, cleanly wiping out all traces of the evil formation set up by that monstrous youth.

After which, his silhouette flickered as he appeared on the stone platform, staring at that beautiful figure lying down on it.

“Child, it has been hard on you.”

This peerless expert had a look in his eyes similar to when he was staring at Qin Wentian. Warm, and filled with gentleness. He already saw everything when he spectated from the air. Qin Wentian came to the Pill Emperor Hall for this girl, and this girl, for Qin Wentian, didn’t mind sacrificing her everything.

Before she condensed that pill, her eyes were filled with endless longing saturated by her love.

She didn’t want to die. She didn’t want to leave. But she had no choices remaining to her.

“Bring the pill.”

That person inclined his head, and he calmly spoke. Instantly, a raging wind gusted by as the languid-looking silhouette appeared beside him with a medicinal pill in his hands. This was none other than the pill Mo Qingcheng had spat out earlier, the one where she used the remaining life force and essence in her body to condensed, a pill that contained her love.

“Both of them are really good girls.” That languid-looking figure infused the pill with his energy before feeding the pill back to Mo Qingcheng. That medicinal pill melted, and dissolved into spiritual qi which then diffused inside Mo Qingcheng’s body.

“Seeing how you treat him, we would not fail to live up to your well intentions. However, in his life, he’s destined to rebuke the Heavens and Earth, shaking the world with his name. If you are to be his wife, you too have to undergo a meteoric rise, soaring up to his level.” The mysterious figure murmured before he turned to the languid-looking figure as he stated, “You, aid her in this. Nurture her to be the wife of our young master. The Pill Emperor Hall isn’t worthy of her.”

“Right.” That figure lightly nodded. He propped Mo Qingcheng over his shoulder, and with a single step, he soared up all the way into the clouds, disappearing in an instant.

After which, that mysterious figure stared up at the heavens, as he shook his head.

And a moment later, his gaze softened as it shifted onto Qing`er carrying the huge roc upon her back.

“Lucky fellow. With two girls of such characters treating you this way, you are much more blessed compared to your father. In the future, you best not let either of them down,” that mysterious figure murmured. As a heartwarming smile appeared on his face, his eyes flashed with the sweetness of past memories.

Laughing fondly, he casually stepped forward. Yet, the entire Pill Emperor Hall was shuddering violently from the power of that single step!

43 thoughts on “AGM: Chapter 428” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. I hate how authors always go with this route. “Let’s abandon him so that he can grow on his own”. Bitch, if his blood and genes are powerful enough for his family to stand on the top then there shouldn’t be any doubt about how powerful he will become. Other powers don’t just willy-nilly abandon their descendants throughout the world and then pick the one that survives yet they stand at the top anyways. It’s so stupid. If I was MC, I wouldn’t consider them as family at all. Use them to destroy Pill Emperor Hall and resurrect Qingcheng if they can and then leave. I’d wait a couple dozen years and wipe their asses out as well.

    1. Well, he wouldn’t grow into someone that reach the apex if he doesn’t experience hardships and is always sheltered by his family. They would have a typical anti-mc-from-a-superior-clan-can’t-recognize-Mt. Tai attitude which is proven to be what leads to their clan being annhilated if he offends someone suprerior and he is in the wrong. The novel won’t sell if he is someone who just uses his background to scare other people of.

    2. Well i believe that kind of approach is the best, how many times you’ve seen in chinese novels characters who hails from superior clans/sects and are young masters of said places, only to provoke mc because they always got away with it. He noticed a beautiful girl that is someones fiancee/wife? I’ll steal it if anything my elders will deal with it later. He has some item that i want? I’ll steal it my elders will take care of that and so on.

      While i’ve strayed from subjects i believe super rich people of this world should take the same approach. Where they just leave their children alone without financial support so they can strive to become as great as their parents, if anything then maybe leave them a small sum of money which they can use to invest into their bussines. The outcome of that would be them investing or creating bussiness and trying to become succesful or simply try to live the rest of their lives with that money.

    3. Well, I have to desagree with you, I get your point but they didn’t just abandon him, he had his Uncle Black and the Qin family, he raised with them, and after thare could be someone monitoring him from far, helping him indirectly, like with Little Rascal, where did that dog come from? Think about it, that girl from the Unmatched real, also he wasn’t really about to die that many times, maybe 3 o so, the first in Chu, but they could know that he was cultivating the technique and would no die for something like that, in the Ancient Realm when he awakened this 3rd eye they had no way to enter and actually was very beneficial for him and then now, he had no way to survive besides they helping him directy, and he did.

      Also you could think that for x or y they weren’t at good spot when he was born and had to leave it temporally but they can’t just show up and say “Hey, we’re your parents, seems you’re doing fine, well, we leave, bye bye” I mean, his parents was the Qin Clan, they biological parents are strangers for him and even so his father still let him help, op techniques and also memory fragments, it’s not like MGA. Well, anyway that’s my point of view, even I understand your point I also understand the plot point.

    4. Simply to say, the family is making sure that their child’s character and dao heart will be firmed and resolute, and wont be influenced by their clan’s power. Yes, there are some exceptions wherein even if one grew up in a very strong family, that person can still experience hardship to form his dao heart and character but it wouldnt be like the experiences someone could get by starting small and simple without any influence/backing. And to be honest, hes actually lucky as he got uncle black before that taught him some stuffs. unlike Chu feng and especially meng hao (literally NO HELP at all until he went to dao seeking). But due to this circumstances and hardships they experienced, it made their will stronger. it made them not to rely on their backings, made them confident, but not arrogant. Just look at ji ning. When he was already a true immortal/empyrean god in 3 realms, he still roamed the minor worlds. (NOT FOR the sake of tempering his will but THERE ARE experiences that can only be found by starting small and simple. AND it actually helped him for his comprehensions. REMEMBER? He became dao father by just fishing in a mortal realm). I do understand your point of view but u need to understand as well that sometimes you need to look at things at a different angle.

  2. sigh, the author is separating them again, i’m sure that Mo Qingcheng will be resurrected or some shit in like 600 chapters.
    wow author, i have never seen that in others chinese novels before, how original of you

    .. well, i hope that she is really dead and the author isn’t using that shitty plot

      1. a Miracle
        like 10000 xianxia novels and every single of them is a copy of each other
        I now (i hope) that a real author will appear one day

    1. perhaps a “resurrection” of sorts with him returning her pill to her. It did mention that none of the other females were dead. Also it may just be me but it never said that she died in a indisputable manner. She might just be having her essence taken just like everyone else.

    2. shes not dead…..were we reading the same chapter, clearly she as already saved and they plan on training her so she can keep up with Qin Wentian… fact this is sorta opposite to most xuanhuans/xianxias where the MC has to rise in power to get the girl, instead she has to rise in power to get him

      1. i wrote this before the chapter was out

        and the authors separate the gf of the MC because the authors have no idea how to fking write a relationship or/and what the hell do to motivate the MC

  3. Qin mention better kill himself, at least his so called allies that were watching from a view would realize how stupid they have being letting him do everything on his own.Mo qingchen you are Dumass he does all that just so you an kill yourself gwd you suck

  4. Despite its short comings, this story manages to always make me on edge for more.

    Also, I guess that the mysterious man is not Uncle Black or his father, but a new character that has never been mentioned before. Maybe his father’s friend or relative?

  5. Sigh… who didn’t saw that comming?

    Jk, I guess we all saw it 30 chapters ago. No idea even with all the raging, and emotions that should be there, personally it doesn’t touch me anymore, since somehow these xianxia/ wuxia novels are too similar… I can forsee that his gf is going to be resuscitated one way or the other, no idea if this is the right place for my rant but I feel…

    disappointed, yes just disappointed the author built such a big world, so many minor scenes fit well and all feels like “shit” when you find out there was somone watching his every step, but couldn’t do anything since the promise he made so long ago… Bah, seriously I want to puke now. Everyone, but his acquaintance in the clouds can break his / her promises made, really? You mister Author want me to seriously believe that?

    Take care in another [] chapters you have an enemy that tells you “That his entire life was planned by ‘him’, every opponent the mc fought was arranged by ‘him’, if you think about it why was it, that the mc’s opponent’s were always slghtly stronger than the mc and he mysteriously got a powerup in every fight, to beat that opponent?” See, ‘he’ planned it all. Hell no! Would believe such bull s#@!!

    If some of you think, hey… that… sounds familiar, you are right, it is from Aizen Sōsuke (Bleach)

    And on a side note, I kept track of the time I spent reading the last chapters, and for me it is between 7 and 10 minutes for every chapter, that means on a normal day where I have to, get up drive to work/school and back home, do miscellaneous housework I have good 4 hours in the evening for myself to be reading then, isn’t worth it for me if all that I get is another copy of the already multiple times read story of xianxia/wuxia narration. After all giving up, around 4% of my free time I have in a day isnt worth it for me to read a story i have already read in a similar shape.

    Sorry if I got on the wrong side of some of you, yet for it to only be an other copy of the already much repeated same novel just disappoints me. However I can do some serious science in the time I had wasted on this, if you are not convinced try the book ‘Our Mathematical Universe’ by Max Tegmark.
    Maybe I give it another try in 100 or 150 chapters after my M.A. in mathematics; scientific computing…

      1. Well, the term “harem” could be used for if the MC constantly makes girls fall for him… doesn’t have to mean he’d actually get a harem. It’s because these tags are added by a few readers often BEFORE they know the whole story… it’s not unusual for tags to be wrong either….

  6. Thanks for the chapter Lordbluefire and Big Fatty Bro! Wonder when his faction will gather together. It looks like he’s already got 2-3 Celestial Phenomenon Realm cultivators on his side who are staying hidden.

  7. Reach the top? Become powerful? What if Wentian ended up just wanting to live a normal life with a loving family?
    A child should always be allowed to suffer hardships. That is life. However as a parent you should always be there for them as they grow up. Helping them and aiding them.
    Taking the stance that his father and these two old men has taken is just abandoning the child unless it becomes good enough according to their own foolish standards.
    This is not love. It is not care. It is not family.
    This is forcing your ideals onto your child while forcing it to suffer.
    If you don’t have any emotional support, how can you ever reach the apex?
    Suffering? Pain? Misery? Foolish. Those things do not make one strong. You can become strong with or without them. Otherwise the strongest person would also be the deadest, with the most miserable life. And the deadest person is dead as sh*t. So that doesn’t make any friggin sense.

    1. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?
      So if I survive a car accident and become a brain damaged cripple my strength will actually have soared halfway to godhood?

      1. If someone survive a car accident and become a brain damaged and ends up in coma could be dreaming his whole life being a xianxia MC that dominates the world. Kappa

  8. If Qin Wentian grew up underneath their care, then whenever Qin Wentian ran into danger, he might always look to them for protection, instead of fighting on his own, achieving strength with his own efforts.

    Bulls***! Why you don’t you just throw him in the middle of the jungle when he is infant if you want him to truly became independent ?!

    He was happy and gratified.

    This is sarcasm right?!! Right, rightttt?!?!?!

    Life was a long, long path. Today, when he solely barged into the Pill Emperor Hall, although he might die here, wasn’t this also a brand new beginning? A rebirth in the flames of nirvana?

    What did you mean ‘brand new beginning’?!?!?!? If you don’t want to help him, then just let him die you *******! And if he died, will you say something like “(*sigh*) He is just too weak…”


    Sorry, I’m just venting my anger. If you won’t help him, who need your long speech of ‘Love’???
    I won’t blame author, I will just blame all to that stupid and hypocryte Uncle B****, or whoever he is.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. But now that I think about it, all of it make the story more interesting.

      A family which have an extreme ideals and pride as high as the heaven, which won’t ever allow their successor became a mediocre person.

      Now that I remember Wentian himself has quite extreme ideals, as said in chapter 1:
      “… In this world, Stellar Martial Cultivators are the true rulers and dictators, while the Martial Cultivators could be considered an existence equivalent to ants. If you cannot be one of the rulers, you might as well give up cultivation.”

      I’m just a mortal which won’t ever ascend to sky with my own strength in my entire life, how can I understand those aloof cultivator that stand above the sky (*sigh*).

  9. Wow, such an annoying chapter.
    Annoying family who forced their extreme ideals to their son.
    Annoying romance, hope it will be much better than Spirit Realm.
    Annoying readers, including me, who are in rage because of this chapter.

    Hope the story still interesting after this and not degrading because it’s likely that harem creation will start after this. Because many harem story feels bland in term romance.

    Still… thanks for the chapter!
