The Sovereign Realm
“Great! Sure enough, a miracle appeared once more. Jiang Chen is indeed a man with a great fortune. He even befriended the peerless Venerable, Xiao Wangqing. As long as Xiao Wangqing is determined to protect Jiang Chen, Jiang Chen has a chance of surviving!”
Yang Yu’s face revealed a look of excitement. Xiao Wangqing’s appearance was undoubtedly a miracle. The atmosphere was suddenly filled with anxiety.
Countless people sighed. Although no one knew what would happen next, one thing was certain – they had not come in vain. Aside from those old ancestors whom they wouldn’t see during normal days, the legendary Venerables were even rarer. Today, even Xiao Wangqing had appeared. No one could remain calm.
“Xiao Wangqing, so you aren’t dead yet?” Lei Wang Venerable spoke.
“You bunch of old men are still very much alive, so I naturally can’t die first.”
The old liar said with a smile and in a dignified tone. Plus, he seemed incomparably proud as though he didn’t put the three unparalleled Venerables in his eyes.
“Xiao Wangqing, this is the matter of Immortal Court. I hope you won’t interfere,” Wang Xuanfeng said with a frown, knowing that Xiao Wangqing wasn’t easy to deal with.
Additionally, he wasn’t a fool. Xiao Wangqing’s intention was clearly expressed when he stopped Wang Xuanfeng’s attack. Xiao Wangqing had come to saved Jiang Chen.
“I’m too lazy to meddle in the matters of the Immortal Court, but if you want to kill Jiang Chen, I’ll oppose it. Jiang Chen belongs to me. No one is allowed to touch him.”
Wang Xiaoqing spoke nonchalantly, and with an obvious tone of resoluteness.
“Xiao Wangqing, I’m afraid that you won’t be able to interfere in this matter. The three great Immortal Courts wanted Jiang Chen’s life. Do you think you are qualified enough for that?” Lan Yanting spoke.
“It’s not up to you if I qualify or not. In fact, you three aren’t even qualified to speak in front of me.” Xiao Wangqing’s expression became cold. Once he made up his mind, no one would be able to stop him.
“How arrogant! He’s at the same level as the other three and is also one of the peerless Venerables, but he’s saying that the three Venerables aren’t even qualified to speak in front of him. I reckon that he’s just being overly conceited.”
“He’s really arrogant. If the three of them joined forces, I’m afraid that he won’t be a match for them.”
“We’ll see. Jiang Chen now has a reliable backer. Perhaps a miracle will appear once more. After vanishing for so long, no one knows the extent of Xiao Wangqing’s current power is.”
Everyone was shocked by Xiao Wangqing’s unparalleled aura and resoluteness, however numerous people could already guess that he was just as strong as the other three.
“Haha! Xiao Wangqing, aren’t you being a little too conceited? In that case, show me if you are still as powerful as before.”
Wang Xuanfeng suddenly burst into laughter. At first, he thought that Jiang Chen had already embarrassed him enough, but now, Xiao Wangqing, who was even more arrogant than Jiang Chen, told him that he wasn’t even qualified to speak. How could he take this insult? It was a direct slap on his face!
A powerful qi rushed out his body. Every peerless Venerables was full of ferociousness and dominance, and the last thing they could tolerate was someone violating their dignity.
He charged, displaying the aura of a peerless Venerable, striking a brilliant palm at Xiao Wangqing.
Countless eyes were focused on him. This was a battle between peerless Venerables. It was their great honor to be able to witness such a battle.
“Amazing! No wonder he’s called Xuan Feng Venerable. His cultivation base is so close to half-step Sovereign. If I were to be hit by that strike, I would die instantly.” Yang Yu was appalled.
Not just Yang Yu, even those late Immortal Venerable old ancestors’ eyes brightened. They were able to see the gap between themselves and these peerless Venerables just by this move.
Currently, all eyes were fixed on Xiao Wangqing. They wanted to see how powerful this legendary Venerable was, and if it was true that not even Wang Xuanfeng and the other two were qualified to speak in front of him.
Silence filled the atmosphere. In the face of the apocalyptic palm, Xiao Wangqing’s eyes didn’t show the slightest bit of fluctuation. His body didn’t even release any sort of qi. When Wang Xuanfeng’s palm was only inches away from Xiao Wangqing, he gently stretched out his finger. That’s right, it was only a finger.
Xiao Wangqing’s finger accurately hit the palm of Wang Xuanfeng. Under the countless astonished gazes, with a sound of ‘pu chi’, Wang Xuanfeng’s palm was pierced through by the finger, and he spurted out blood crazily. His energy instantly diminished.
Wang Xuanfeng let out a cry of exclamation, and retreated with haste. His entire arm had become numb, blood oozed out uncontrollably.
He then looked at Xiao Wangqing, fear slowly spread across his face from his eyes. “You-you have already stepped into the Sovereign Realm?”
As soon as the word ‘Sovereign Realm’ came out, the whole scene was in an uproar. Lei Batian and Lan Yanting in particular had completely changed the way they looked at Xiao Wangqing. Others might not be able to notice it, but they clearly saw how easily Xiao Wangqing had pierced the palm of Wang Xuanfeng with just a finger, there wasn’t even a trace of qi exuding from him. If he was the previous Xiao Wangqing, he wouldn’t be able to this no matter how heaven-defying he was. The only explanation was that Xiao Wangqing had reached the Sovereign realm. If this was true, then what he said previously wasn’t just a boast, the three of them indeed weren’t qualified to speak in front of a Sovereign.
“My God! A Sovereign expert! Xiao Wangqing has actually reached the half-step Sovereign realm! No wonder he’s that arrogant.”
“Amazing! A Sovereign expert has emerged. I can’t believe that I’m actually witnessing the demeanor of a half-step Sovereign.”
“This trip is worthwhile indeed. Xiao Wangqing really had the right to be arrogant. Despite disappearing for so long, he still reached the Sovereign realm.”
Everyone was utterly surprised. The shock brought by the peerless Venerables and a half-step Sovereign was completely different. There was no comparison at all.
Jiang Chen looked at the old liar’s back, the corners of his mouth couldn’t help but reveal a trace of a plain smile. It seemed like Xiao Wangqing had finally made the breakthrough and reached the Sovereign realm, which was something that was worth celebrating.
In the void, Xiao Wangqing’s qi and body began to change. Countless rays of golden light rushed out of his body. His hair began to turn black, his body became sturdier, his beard disappeared, and his appearance became handsome and young once more, restoring him back to his former elegance.
