AGM 497 – Forced Into Desperate Straits

Qin Wentian’s countenance turned incredibly ugly as he stared at the middle-aged man in front of him. Naturally, he could sense the power of a space sealing treasure on the man’s body—this was something the major powers had specially prepared to deal with him.

Explosively retreating, Qin Wentian waved his hands as beams of sword light slammed into the light screen. Fluctuations of energy could be seen upon the slash yet the light screen appeared unharmed.

“It’s useless,” Yin Ting icily stated. This sealing treasure was an extremely powerful heirloom of their Yin Clan. They had taken the trouble to request its use, so how could they still allow Qin Wentian to escape?

“I’ve said it before, you won’t be able to escape,” Shang Qi coldly spat, stepping forward. The chosen from the six major powers were all gathered here today, slowly advancing forwards as they stared at Qin Wentian. From their gazes, Qin Wentian could feel an unmasked killing intent.

Obviously, they wanted nothing more than for Qin Wentian to die.

Qin Wentian hadn’t expected that these people would be able to find him, and even going so far to prepare such a powerful sealing treasure just for his sake. Evidently, this wasn’t just a random pursuit, but an extremely well-planned one.

The baleful aura from the Vermilion Bird grew increasingly intense as purgatory flames erupted around it. Only then did those experts seriously pay attention to the vermilion bird, feeling extremely shocked in their hearts. This young man’s demonic beasts were all extremely strange. He had a puppy that could enlarge at will, able to move at incredible speeds and now, he actually had a vermilion bird as well? Not to mention, the aura of the vermilion bird felt exceedingly powerful.

Qin Wentian glanced at Purgatory, feeling astonished as he sensed the power of its aura. It would seem that after Little Rascal had devoured the crimson-eyed demonic spirit, it acted as a source of nourishment for Purgatory, causing it to grow even stronger.

Little Rascal was extremely intelligent. Right now, it was hiding behind Qin Wentian. It knew that they were facing extreme danger, and hence, it opened its mouth and started to spit out astral light, manifesting a nebula in the sky.

“Hmm?” Upon witnessing this scene, the middle-aged man frowned and stated, “Stop that little beast.”

“Roger.” Behind him, several experts moved towards Little Rascal. Qin Wentian stepped forwards, blocking them with a halberd in his hands. Those experts all wore expressions of fear on their faces; the memory of Qin Wentian slaughtering those fifth-level Heavenly Dipper Sovereigns was still fresh in their minds. They dared not infuriate this god of death.

“You wanna play?” That middle-aged man with a cultivation base at the seventh-level of Heavenly Dipper walked out. Yet, the Purgatory Vermilion Bird gave a shrill shriek as it instantly appeared before Qin Wentian, guarding him protectively. The baleful light in its eyes struck terror in the people’s hearts.

The six chosen also began to move towards Qin Wentian.  Right now, their Astral Nova’s were all already unleashed.  They would not give Qin Wentian the slightest bit of opportunity in this confrontation.

In the battle yesterday, Xie Yu had almost been slain by Qin Wentian. They couldn’t afford to be careless when facing this man.

“You might have been able to save your little life if you had obediently handed over the fruits yesterday. Now, the only path that awaits you is death,” Feng Yunhe coldly spat out. Facing such a scenario, Qin Wentian could see no way to escape. There was no blood pool in the area, so Qin Wentian couldn’t unleash the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay. His only choice was to transform into a primordial great roc once more, completely annihilating those who’d come after him today.

The nebula in the sky grew increasingly concentrated to the point of it was birthing a constellation. A glint of sharpness flashed through Qin Wentian’s eyes, back then Little Rascal devoured the Vermilion Bird Formation. Now that Purgatory has recovered, could Little Rascal spit out the formation it had devoured and allow Purgatory to control it?

“I must drag this out.” Qin Wentian mused. Upon thinking of this, his blood started surging once more. Truth to be told, the power of his bloodline had not completely recovered after that intense battle yesterday. Now that he was burning his blood once more, Qin Wentian felt an extremely heavy pressure boring down on him. However, he didn’t have a choice, he had to fight or die.

The star light from the manifested nebula gradually landed on the Purgatory Vermilion Bird’s body, causing the purgatory flames around it to soar to an even higher crescendo. Such a scene caused the expressions of the middle-aged man to falter as he swiftly commanded, “I must kill that vile beast.”

As the sound of his voice faded, his silhouette flickered as he sped towards Purgatory. With a grabbing motion, a palm imprint made from lightning and thunder manifested and slammed down with blinding speed, holding the purgatory vermilion bird in his grasp as arcs of lightning sparkled and directly exploded, injuring the vermilion bird.

The Purgatory Vermilion Bird issued a wrathful shriek, the purgatory flames from it exploded outwards, blasting against that palm imprint as shockwaves from their collision devastated the surrounding area.

At the same time, the six chosen began attacking Qin Wentian. The rest of the experts similarly moved towards Little Rascal.

Qin Wentian’s Astral Nova’s erupted into being, his demonic blood seething and surging within his body as demon scale armor enveloped his body.

“Whoever dares to move forward shall die.” Qin Wentian roared. Stomping on the ground, a towering sword qi gushed forth from him, engulfing this entire space.

“Why wouldn’t we dare?” Jian Jingtian frowned. Stepping forwards, the sword qi from him grew more and more intense, eventually causing a river of swords to manifest, which then gushed over to Qin Wentian.

“BOOM!” Qin Wentian stepped forwards as the sword might from the Seven Annihilations Swordplay soared to its limits.

“DO IT!” Shang Qi commanded, the other experts began unleashing their attacks, aiming for that snowy puppy behind Qin Wentian.

Qin Wentian continued stepping forth as the amount of sword qi rose to a terrifying height. His silhouette flickered and vanished, before appearing in the midst of those moving towards Little Rascal and completing the fifth step. An overwhelming sword intent engulfed his surroundings as his King Sword Astral Nova swung left and right. Instantly, blood splattered as the others all rapidly retreated in all directions.

“BOOOM!” The Heartbreak Echo rumbled the hearts of the experts. At the same instant, Qin Wentian completed the sixth step as the surrounding experts all screamed in agony as the sounds of laceration resounded out.

On the other side, Shang Qi and the others dashed towards Little Rascal. Feng Yunhe was the fastest, his sharp talons directly slashed downwards yet Little Rascal still continued what he was doing, spitting out astral light as his body turned shiny golden in color.

“Szzz!” The sharp talons slammed onto his body causing it to be flipped over a few times by the force. However, the stream of astral light issuing from its mouth continued unabated, causing the light from the nebula to grow increasingly stronger as the star light enveloped the purgatory vermilion bird.

“This little bastard is truly tanky indeed.” Xie Yu coldly spoke. His nine arms unleashed a flurry of punches causing the sky to be covered in fist shadows before slamming right into Little Rascal again. The rumbling might of his attacks sank into Little Rascal from all directions, causing Little Rascal to be flung through the air from the impact as it spat out fresh blood.

Little Rascal’s eyes were smouldering with rage. It lifted its head as it continued to issue out streams of astral light. An unbendable resolution resembling Qin Wentian’s could be seen flashing in its eyes.

Qin Wentian’s anger boiled to its limits upon seeing what happened. Stepping out the seventh step, his King Sword Astral Nova containing a boundless fury lashed out in wrath. Those near him all felt sword qi penetrate their bodies and the humming of a sword melody that lacerated their throats. However, the six chosen from the major powers didn’t seemed too concerned when their subordinates fell. They were willing to spend any price to kill Qin Wentian.

“Can you just die already?” Xie Yu mercilessly unleashed his attacks at Little Rascal once again. Each of his punches contained the vast and ponderous might of the Mandate of Great Earth as well as the sharpness of the Mandate of Gold within them.

How could Qin Wentian endure this? After killing those blocking his path, he immediately executed Stellar Transposition and appeared beside Xie Yu. A resplendent light glimmered at the center of his brows, shooting right into Xie Yu’s sea of consciousness. At the same time, his Astral Nova directly lashed out, wanting to smash Xie Yu’s head apart.

However, Shang Qi directly appeared before him, blocking the strike for Xie Yu. His blood-colored palms shone with a golden light, slamming against Qin Wentian’s King Sword causing him to be forced several steps backwards from the force of that impact. But in that brief instant, Xie Yu’s attacks had all unceasingly slammed into Little Rascal successfully.

Right now, the fluctuations of the sealing energy fluttered as several newly arrived experts entered into the light screen. These people all exuded an extraordinary aura, they were the reserves prepared and had been following behind the chosen from a great distance away.

“Bzzz!” However, before Qin Wentian could do anything, he felt the fluctuations of the sealing energy once more as this entire space was re-sealed again. The pursuers chose an exact moment where he couldn’t afford to be distracted before they tweaked the seal, allowing the reserves to enter.

Qin Wentian scanned the cultivation bases of these experts, soon after, a look of despair clouded his face.

The weakest among these people had a cultivation base at the sixth level of Heavenly Dipper. There was completely no hope at all.

Torrential amounts of demonic qi exploded forth from him as he stretched his will across the skies. Only through using the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation could he resolve this crisis.

However the next instant, Qin Wentian paled. He had no way to activate the Demonic Divinity Sacrificial Transformation technique.

That sealing treasure didn’t merely prevent teleportation. It was a complete, absolute sealing of space, separating this area completely from the external world. Qin Wentian had no way to form a connection with the constellations of the demonic divinities in the Heavenly Layers.

Since he knew it was impossible, Qin Wentian immediately discarded the plan. His silhouette flickered as he appeared before Little Rascal. Now that Qin Wentian was trapped, those experts weren’t in a hurry to make their move. Their eyes flickered with cruel amusement as they stared at Qin Wentian. They too, also knew that right now, Qin Wentian had no way out.

“Little Rascal, if I die here, bring Purgatory back to Grand Xia.” Qin Wentian spoke in a low voice. There was only one solution left. However, if he unleashed the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay in such a circumstance, he would die without a doubt.

But now, he no longer had a choice.

“AROOOOOOO!” Little Rascal let out a torrent of barks, while frenziedly shaking its head, as the stream of astral light being issued from its mouth continued on at an even faster pace.

“After you die, do you think these two demonic beasts can escape? But I have to say they would truly make good mounts for my royal clan, to think you have something so rare like a vermilion bird with you.” Shang Qi’s eyes gleamed with sharpness. Did Qin Wentian think he could protect these demonic beasts? Wasn’t that a little too laughable?

“Subdue the vermilion bird first, the aura its exuding is getting stronger and stronger.” Upon hearing the command, the experts near the area all dashed towards the vermilion bird.

Right now, the flames around Purgatory has already reached an incredible degree. It was as though with but a thought, it could incinerate everything.

A shrill shriek echoed out as it suddenly turned about, shooting purgatory fireballs towards Shang Qi and the others.

“Careful!” Shang Qi and the rest immediately retreated. The purgatory vermilion bird didn’t chase after them but rather, it sped towards Qin Wentian instead, knocking him down onto the ground. Just as the torrential sword qi from Qin Wentian was about to explode forwards, he found himself interrupted by the vermilion bird. It refused to allow him to unleash the Immortal Vanquishing Swordplay.

“PURGATORY!” Qin Wentian raged, only to see the wings of the vermilion bird gently enveloping him protectively within. Right now, the baleful light in its eyes melted, replaced by an intense warmth and a gentleness.

It was born because of Qin Wentian. How could it allow him to die from using that fearsome swordplay just when it was just revived?

It, Purgatory, refused to allow this!

  1. This is a good story, too bad Qin Wentian is a moron. He struggled to beat them last time and when he noticed them coming over he rushed towards them to fight. What a fool. Serves him right if he suffers greatly, maybe he’ll learn to make intelligent decisions in the future.

    1. Loving Qin Wentian but I have to agree there. What an incredibly stupid move. Rushing into battle every single time is a tad too reckless. Having him survive this purely because of his main character status will just degrade the story. >_<

    2. And let’s not forget that he hadn’t recovered to his optimal state, but even if he had, it would have still been wiser to run away. Running away isn’t a mark of cowardice, it shows someone who knows his limits or knows not to do unnecessary things.

  2. I love when the enemies can remain so cocky when they team up on him and would get trashed 1 on 1. also I really hope we dont have another sacrificial technique again from the bird, thatd be too repetitive.
