Translated by: Pumpkin

Two people walked out from the small narrow path in the bamboo forest. One of them was tall and had both handsome facial features and sparkling and translucent jade-like skin. However, it was hard to determine whether this person was a male or a female from the appearance. The other person was a large plump fatty.
"So Asura Devil Emperor and Black Devil Emperor have also arrived." Emperor Yu smiled as he greeted them.
Cyan Emperor, Black and White Dual Immortal Emperors and the Hidden Emperor all greeted them.
"Gong Pang, say, can you not change your appearance a bit?" Hidden Emperor laughed as he said this towards the big plump fatty. "You're the Black Devil Emperor, yet you always possess such a meatball-like appearance, it's really…"
Gong Pang was very fat. However, his expression was ice-cold. "The most important aspect of the Black Devil Path is the body. In a battle, the most optimum body figure is that of a meatball."
"Brother Lin, you'd best stop trying to persuade him. Nobody has been able to change something that Gong Pang had decided upon." Laughed the handsome yet gender indeterminate Asura Devil Emperor who had arrived with Gong Pang.
The Asura Devil Emperor was called Zi Ruxue. As for the gender… he was a male!
In the house within the tiny bamboo forest. In a short period of time, so many big shots had arrived. All of these big shots were at a super high level, aloof and remote. Many of the normal cultivators had even set them as their ultimate goal.
Cyan Emperor, Emperor Yu, Asura Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor all sat down in succession.
"I do know why you all have arrived at this time around." Hidden Emperor took a glance at everyone present. "Such a large disturbance happened, in the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realms, only to unexpectedly form a few words."
Emperor Yu laughed. "Not only words; at the end, those frightening energies collided with each other. It was a truly gorgeous and beautiful sight. At the same time, there were also the words of that existence which transcends the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realms. I believe you all have heard that."
Everybody's expression changed.
That voice completely ignored the willpower of everyone. It directly sounded in their ears, their mind and then soul. Even experts of Hidden Emperor's level were equally unable to resist it.
Difference in level. That was precisely the difference in level.
"The person who said 'little friend, train quick, we are waiting for you,' how strong he is was not something that we need to think about. He was already way beyond the level of our imagination. However, as to who this little friend is, I am wondering if brother Lin have an answer to that." Black Devil Emperor looked at Hidden Emperor.
Hidden Emperor shook his head.
"Brother Lin truly don't know. I had already asked him earlier." At this moment, Emperor Yu assisted Hidden Emperor.
At the same time, Emperor Yu stood up. "Everyone, I apologize but I must leave now."
This Emperor Yu suddenly out of nowhere decided to leave first. However, Hidden Emperor, Asura Devil Emperor, Cyan Emperor and the rest of them all had a slight smile on their faces. Even the Black Devil Emperor's facial muscles trembled a bit.
"Old boy Feng Yu, you can leave first. We know about your difficulties." Said the Hidden Emperor with a smile.
Emperor Yu's old face grew slightly red. After walking for a couple steps, he disappeared into the bamboo forest.
Right after Emperor Yu disappeared, a figure of a beautiful woman appeared within the bamboo forest. Her pink silk dress was fluttering in the wind. A woman who's so beautiful, enough to move hearts, appeared in front of the Hidden Emperor and the rest.
"If old boy Feng Yu doesn't appear, then little sister Xuan Xi would also not appear." Said Cyan Emperor as he chuckled.
The person who arrived was the Mystic Emperor, Xuan Xi.
The Mystic Emperor merely faintly smiled but didn't say anything.
Hidden Emperor Star, East Star City. Inside a certain manor's garret.
Emperor Yu was currently sitting inside the garret.
"Xuan Xi's temper is way too strange. Wasn't she fine a couple of days ago, how come she's mad at me again? Sigh…" Emperor Yu sighed in his heart. He slightly had a bitter smile.
At this moment, a bald headed man walked in.
Said the bald headed man respectfully. This bald headed man was one of the 'Eighteen Emperors' working under Emperor Yu, a level six Immortal Emperor, Yuan Lan.
Emperor Yu's expression returned to the tranquility it had before. "Yuan Lan, when I had you dispatch people to follow those people, did you manage to obtain any result?"
Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan said respectfully. "Your Majesty, fifty years ago, the Prince of the Dragon Clan, Ao Wuming, Jun Luoyu and that man that Your Majesty wanted arrived to the Demon Emperor Meng Hong's manor."
"Did you manage to find out the identity of that person?" Asked Emperor Yu.
Yuan Lan nodded, he said. "Yes, Your Majesty. From the maids of Meng Hong's manor, we discovered that Meng Hong and the rest of them called that man 'Qin Yu!'"
"Qin Yu?" Emperor Yu's face had a slightly astonished expression.
To be able to flee from the White Haired Blood Devil, Xue Yileng; how could it be Qin Yu?
Emperor Yu had always thought that Qin Yu was only Lan Feng's sect nephew. He had thought that Qin Yu was only a nobody that had just ascended to the Immortal Realm. Who Emperor Yu truly held in importance in his heart was Lan Feng.
"Qin Yu? I'm afraid that's a false name that Lan Feng deliberately used." Emperor Yu laughed mildly.
"This subordinate doesn't know. However, Your Majesty had dispatched people to search for that Lan Feng, certainly that Lan Feng would also know of the dangers. Perhaps he truly was using 'Qin Yu' as a false name." Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan voiced in approval.
"Continue speaking." Said Emperor Yu indifferently.
Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan went through his thoughts before continuing. "In these fifty years, based on our investigation, we had determined that Ao Wuming and them should all be hiding within that Wuming Dragon Mansion. For a period of time, we had thought that Ao Wuming, Jun Luoyu, Qin Yu and them had left the Hidden Emperor Star. However, in these fifty years, we had seen Jiang Yan and Ao Wuming's wife Lian Zhu strolling down the street. Thus, in these fifty years, Qin Yu and them should be hiding in the Wuming Dragon Mansion the whole time."
The existence of the Wuming Dragon Mansion was not a secret to Emperor Yu's intelligence organization.
"Not long ago, my subordinates had discovered that Qin Yu, Jun Luoyu, Ao Wuming and them have appeared in Meng Hong's manor and even held a banquet in the manor's grand hall." Said Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan respectfully.
"Oh?" Emperor Yu slightly smiled. "With so many frightening energies gathered in the skies of the Hidden Emperor Star, they instead dared to conduct a banquet? They're pretty courageous."
"Yuan Lan." Emperor Yu's expression turned somewhat serious.
Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan bowed. He knew that Emperor Yu was about to give him an order.
"I want you to continue to monitor that 'Qin Yu' in secrecy. As long as he's still together with Ao Wuming, you are not required to inform me. However… once he leaves Ao Wuming, you are to immediately contact me." Emperor Yu gave the order sternly.
"Yes, Your Majesty."
Immortal Emperor Yuan Lan bowed to accept the order.
"Also, if that Qin Yu had any special movements, you are to note that too. After a period of time, you are to transmit all those information to me." Emperor Yu entrusted another task to Yuan Lan.
Even though Qin Yu relied on his Meteoric Tear a lot, his Immortal Awareness was very sensitive. Even if an expert of the Immortal Emperor level were to spy on him, he would still be able to easily discover them.
The methods that Emperor Yu's subordinates used to investigate someone were extremely many. Even with Qin Yu's ability, he still had never discovered that he was being investigated. Furthermore, in the bottom of his heart, he had never worried about the dangers.
As for now, there's even less of a chance for him to worry!
Inside the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Qin Yu was sitting on a chair. He took out the little green tower, 'Jiang Lan's Realm.'
The incident with all the Cosmic Energies of the whole universe gathering in the Hidden Emperor Star had already passed. Qin Yu, with his mind at ease, opened the Jiang Lan's Realm.
"When you are able to completely control the Jiang Lan's Realm is the time when you're capable of meeting Li'er." Qin Yu clearly remembered Uncle Lan's words. Remembering those words, Qin Yu had a slight smile on his face.
"Uncle Lan had said that it'd be possible to open the first layer of this Jiang Lan's Realm with the strength of a level five or six Golden Immortal. I should be able to open it now." Qin Yu took a deep breath.
Within his Dantian, the Golden Ring of Light that appeared in a third distance into the Black Hole Channel flashed.
The power of the Black Hole was pouring into the Jiang Lan's Realm from Qin Yu's body.
The little green tower started to gradually tremble. Golden rays started to shine from within the little green tower. Gradually… as Qin Yu poured more and more energy into the little green tower, the little green tower was finally completely covered in a golden light.
The little green tower had turned into a little gold tower.
"Congratulations on opening the first layer space of the Jiang Lan's Realm. You have two more layers waiting for you. The moment when you open the whole Jiang Lan's Realm, that is the moment when you're qualified to meet Li'er."
Uncle Lan's voice echoed in Qin Yu's mind the moment he opened the first layer of the Jiang Lan's Realm.
"I opened it. I finally opened the first layer."
The golden light on the Jiang Lan's Realm had dissipated. It had once again returned to being a little green tower.
Seeing the little green tower on his hand, Qin Yu had a slight happy expression on his face. "So many years had passed, I finally managed to open the first layer of the Jiang Lan's Realm. To be able to open the first layer, it indicates that there would be a day when I would be able to open the second layer and then the third layer!"
Qin Yu's eyes were shining, he was filled with confidence.
"Li'er, we will meet again soon, soon!" Qin Yu felt that his heart was trembling. Regardless… he had finally managed to accomplish the first step.
Jiang Lan's Realm is a very special Divine Artifact. As for what level this Divine Artifact was – Middle Level Divine Artifact? High Level Divine Artifact? Or maybe the Top Level Divine Artifact? – Qin Yu didn't know.
[TL: I am putting Divine Artifact because I don't think Divine Weapon would be the best translation for a tower. 神器 literally means Divine Artifact/Tool/Weapon/Utensil. So yeah. I try my best to keep weapons for 'weapons' and armors for 'armors'. Since Jiang Lan's Realm is a tower, I decided to use artifact.]
However, he was currently the master of the Jiang Lan's Realm.
With a move of his intentions, Qin Yu disappeared from the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
In the first layer world of the Jiang Lan's Realm.
A strange feeling. The moment he entered, Qin Yu was able to sense that the whole space here was different from the space outside. The construction of the space had some difference that Qin Yu was unable to understand.
The space in Jiang Lan's Realm's first layer was 10:1 in time compared to the outside world. When ten years passed in this space, only a single year had passed in the outside world.
With the time dilation, the Elemental Spirit Aura concentration was also changed. The concentration of the Elemental Spirit Aura in here was also ten times that of the outside world.
"Marvelous, what a marvelous Jiang Lan's Realm. To be able to change the speed of time and the concentration of Elemental Spirit Aura, oh how extraordinary." Unable to help himself, Qin Yu sighed in awe.
Qin Yu's currently cultivation level was too weak. He totally didn't know what it signified when someone was able to create a Divine Artifact that can create a space with a changed speed of time!
"Divine Artifact. A Divine Artifact with a containing a space. A Divine Artifact that one could enter." Qin Yu's eyes shined.
Space rings are powerful. However, they're only able to store items and were unable to allow people to enter.
Immortal Mansions like Qingyu Immortal Mansion were something that people could enter. However, their defense was based on the barriers. Moreover, these Immortal Mansions have a size limit. For example, the Qingyu Immortal Mansion was only that big.
But this Space Divine Artifact was different.
Not only was the space within it boundless, the Divine Artifact's defense power was also surpassing the Qingyu Immortal Mansion type barriers by far.
Once inside the Jiang Lan's Realm, even experts of Emperor Yu's level would not be able to break through it.
Opening the first layer of the Jiang Lan's Realm and becoming the master of it, Qin Yu was able to determine how strong its defense was.
With an move of his intention, Qin Yu came out of the Jiang Lan's Realm.
"Although I only barely opened the first layer, it allowed me to save ten times worth of time in my cultivation speed. It even gave me a place to hide in times of danger." Qin Yu looked at the little green tower in his hand. He was awfully excited.
Qin Yu hated the feeling of being ever fearful and nervous.
However, in order to see Li'er, he must live. And now that he had the Jiang Lan's Realm, Qin Yu now also had the confidence.
Although he didn't know what rank this Divine Artifact Jiang Lan's Realm was, but with Qin Yu's knowledge, this extraordinary Jiang Lan's Realm ought to be higher level than his Divine Weapon, Sky Piercer.
"Uncle Lan had casually given Zong Jue and Fei Fei those weapons constructed of special materials that was able to stand up to Divine Weapons. As for this Jiang Lan's Realm, when Uncle Lan gave it to me, he appeared to be very serious. It was clear how precious the Jiang Lan's Realm was."
"I really wanted to spend a couple hundred years and train in the Jiang Lan's Realm. Mn, let's go out first. Otherwise, Jiang Lan would make a scene again." Qin Yu departed from the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Inside a restaurant.
Qin Yu was drinking wine by himself.
"Brother Luoyu, don't blame me for being inadequate toward my brother. It's just that that Yan'er was truly too hard to deal with." Muttered Qin Yu as he looked toward the street underneath the restaurant. Jun Luoyu was helplessly following behind Jiang Yan as they shopped down the street.
Jiang Yan insisted that Qin Yu, Jun Luoyu and the rest to go strolling with her.
Qin Yu accompanied her for a while. As for now… it was Jun Luoyu's turn. Qin Yu didn't have any spirit of brotherhood to accompany Jun Luoyu and endure Jiang Yan's torments. When he accompanied Jiang Yan earlier, why was Jun Luoyu spared for it?
"I'll accompany Yan'er for a couple more days and then enter the Jiang Lan's Realm and train." Qin Yu had decided.
Training in the Jiang Lan's Realm would certainly allow Qin Yu's cultivation speed to enter a new level. Training a thousand years in the first layer of the Jiang Lan's Realm would only be a hundred years in the outside world.
He continued to drink wine silently. He was enjoying the rich and mellow flavor of the fine wines of the Immortal Realm. Suddenly —
"Miss, please sit here."
A sharp and clear voice sounded in the restaurant. Qin Yu raised his head to look. He saw a yellow clothed maid leading a green clothed girl toward the restaurant's window seat.
"Sisi, you can sit down too." The green clothed girl's face was abnormally pale.
Seeing that green clothed girl, Qin Yu quickly pulled back his eyes.
He remembered… that this green clothed girl was the girl his dumb disciple, Liu Hanshu, liked.
Qin Yu can't help but recalling the scene in his mind —
"In my lifetime, the only regret that I have is… her." Liu Hanshu who was bleeding from his eyes, ears, nose and mouth appeared to be having a fantasy. One the verge of death, his dimly lit eyes contained a reluctance. Soon after, Liu Hanshu who was bleeding from his eyes, ears, nose and mouth slowly and straightly fell. With a rumble, he smashed into the ground.
Qin Yu's body shivered, his whole mood had changed.
Qin Yu had a bitter expression. Never had he imagined that he would encounter the green clothed girl that his disciple, Liu Hanshu, liked.
