Book 13 Three Brothers - Chapter 32 – Hei Yu's Birth Information
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Phillip and Robin
With the Sealing Element Refining Flame Array, the Peng Demon Emperor and them did not fear that Qin Yu and Hei Yu would be able to escape. Ao Ku directly stepped forward and removed the Profound Golden Illusion Array. The array was easily removed. Upon seeing Peng Demon Emperor and the other three coming in, Qin Yu merely looked to Hei Yu by his side.
"You're still trying to fight a futile battle?" Ao Ku, Bai Feng and Liu Tu sneered.
Immediately after, the three of them turned into three blurs and shot directly toward Hei Yu. The three of them were joining hands to take care of Hei Yu together according to the Peng Demon Emperor's command. It was very clear that the Peng Demon Emperor wanted Hei Yu to die. And with the current circumstances, the three of them also didn't believe that they would fail.
"Xiao Hei, it's impossible for you to get the opportunity to kill them, it's best for you to give up for now." Said Qin Yu via voice transmission. At the same time, he was prepared to send Hei Yu into the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Hei Yu turned around to take a glance at Qin Yu. He finally gave up resisting.
"Huff!" The three blurs pounced upon empty air.
"Where'd he go?" Ao Ku, Bai Feng and Liu Tu looked at each other in dismay. Hei Yu who was previously in front of them had disappeared into thin air. The three of them looked to Qin Yu simultaneously. Qin Yu smiled and said. "Don't bother searching anymore, Hei Yu is already inside the Qingyu Immortal Mansion. And I too…"
Right when Qin Yu was preparing to enter the Jiang Lan's Realm, suddenly… a divine light shined through Qin Yu's mind.
"Maybe I could even safely leave here." Qin Yu decided not to enter the Jiang Lan's Realm.
"Qingyu Immortal Mansion. Humph, it'll merely delay your death." In the distance, the Peng Demon Emperor was currently walking over indifferently. It appeared that the Peng Demon Emperor was very confident in breaking through the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Ao Ku, Bai Feng and Liu Tu appeared to have the same idea without speaking and started to attack Qin Yu like lightning. However, at the moment before they attacked, Qin Yu had already acted. His speed was extremely fast. Leaving behind only a blur, Qin Yu had rushed in front of Ao Ku.
"Old friend, it's the second time." Qin Yu appeared in front of Ao Ku.
Ao Ku was greatly alarmed.
He was very clear about Qin Yu's strength. If he were not to change into his two true bodies, than with merely a single body, especially with his current form that hasn't even changed to battle form, Qin Yu possessed enough strength to kill him. With lightning-fast speed, Ao Ku went into battle form. His Divine Weapon, the spiked club, was also sent smashing forward ferociously.
Like two colossal meteorites colliding, the rumbling noise sounded unceasingly. Qin Yu and Ao Ku separated simultaneously.
"Eh, why didn't Qin Yu use his extremely sharp finger technique?" Ao Ku started to ponder. During their last fight, Qin Yu almost killed him when he used his Divine Sword Sky Piercer and his Sky Piercing Finger; that was something that was still fresh in Ao Ku's memory.
The stronger the collision, the stronger the rebound. Borrowing the strength of the rebound, Qin Yu's body did a beautiful curve and immediately arrived beside another level eight Demon Emperor… in front of Bai Feng.
Amongst the three Demon Emperor’s, Bai Feng was the weakest!
"Humph." Bai Feng humphed coldly. The Mid Quality Divine Weapon Long Sword in her hand turned into a red ray of light as it was thrust at Qin Yu. Wherever the Divine Sword passed, the space would warp all over. Qin Yu merely moved several centimeters; the rest appeared to be unchanged.
"Tsk~~" The Divine Sword pierced into Qin Yu's body. Like a regular metal sword piercing through solid leather, the Divine Sword appeared to have been jammed. It barely managed to pierce through several centimeters.
Bai Feng was shocked. She had heard that Qin Yu's body was extremely strong, almost as strong as a Divine Artifact. However, she was unable to restrain her shock when she experienced it for herself.
Qin Yu did not bother with Bai Feng's Divine Sword being pierced into his body. Instead, he began to speed up the Nine Steps Force through his Black Hole. Using that, he shot out the most frightening Sky Piercing Finger and destroyed Bai Feng's defense, piercing through her dantian. At the same time, Qin Yu had also thrust his Divine Sword into it.
"Bang!" The Nine Steps Force contained in the Divine Sword also erupted. Bai Feng's Nascent Soul had luckily escaped the Sky Piercing Finger, but against the Nine Steps Force that was shot in all directions from the Divine Sword that was thrust into her dantian, her Nascent Soul was finally hit. The Nascent Soul with extremely weak defense crumbled on the spot.
"How could this be?"
Bai Feng had a face filled with disbelief. She had never expected that she, an existence in the Bird Clan that was second to only the Peng Demon Emperor, would die here; die in a battle that seemed like a certain victory. She was even unable to use her special finishing move, the Phoenix Tail Needle.
Bai Feng's body landed on the ground heavily.
Level eight Demon Emperor Bai Feng, dead!
"Regarding this Mid Quality Divine Sword, I'll kindly accept it." At the instant Qin Yu killed Bai Feng, he had snatched her Divine Sword. At the same time he took the Divine Sword, his Immortal Awareness had already covered the entire surrounding. All of the people on the scene, including the Peng Demon Emperor, had every single one of their actions closely monitored by Qin Yu.
Especially the Peng Demon Emperor, Qin Yu had always been careful of him.
At this moment, Ao Ku and Liu Tu who saw this scene were astonished. Bai Feng, who was their partner for all these years, had unexpectedly died just like that. And at the same time Bai Feng's corpse landed on the ground, a golden light appeared to have traveled through time and space, arriving in front of Qin Yu.
"How could he be this fast?" Qin Yu who had already spread out his Immortal Awareness to pay attention to the Peng Demon Emperor, upon noticing that the Peng Demon Emperor had started to move, only managed to move his body slightly before the Peng Demon Emperor's attack arrived in front of him.
A heavy fist landed on Qin Yu's chest, who had a face filled with shock.
Like a ray of light, Qin Yu crashed onto the black pillar. The black pillar, that was specially designed to restrain people, broke apart with a loud rumble and toppled over. However, Qin Yu was not stopped. He continued to ruthlessly smash into the ground. His crash jolted the entire summit of the Yellow Lion Mountain.
"Your body's truly strong." The Peng Demon Emperor clenched his fist.
If Qin Yu's body had been a bit weaker, then he wouldn't have been smashed into the ground. The punch would instead have pierced his body.
"Where'd he go?" Ao Ku and Liu Tu flew to the hole that Qin Yu smashed into. That hole was very shallow; its depth was only about the length of a man. Qin Yu had merely just been smashed into it but had already disappeared into thin air.
The Peng Demon Emperor's voice sounded.
"Don't worry, that Qin Yu had already disappeared the moment when he smashed into the ground. I think… that Qingyu Immortal Mansion must've changed into some sort of speck and is hiding on the ground." Said the Peng Demon Emperor as he pointed at the location where Qin Yu landed.
"Your Majesty is truly brilliant." Praised Ao Ku and Liu Tu.
The Peng Demon Emperor said cold and matter-of-factly. "Enough. For Bai Feng to be killed by Qin Yu under the circumstances from earlier, Bai Feng was truly being too careless. Her death cannot be blamed on others. We'll leave here and go outside of the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array. We'll have them use the Extremely Silent Heavenly Flame to burn everything down."
"Yes." Ao Ku and Liu Tu accepted the order.
With the Peng Demon Emperor in the lead, Ao Ku and Liu Tu followed behind him on either side and flew out of the range of the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array. Compared to the time when they came in, they have lost a member, Bai Feng.
Inside the Jiang Lan's Realm.
"Phew, that speed was truly fast." Qin Yu had a lingering fear just thinking about it.
With Qin Yu's chest as the center, a hole was caved in. The majority of his breastbones were broken. Had it not been for his Life Elemental Energy recovering him rapidly, that punch would've likely pierced a hole through Qin Yu's body. However, at this moment… Qin Yu had completely recovered.
"I suspect that the Peng Demon Emperor is about to use the Sealing Element Refining Flame Array and burn everything down now?" The corners of Qin Yu's mouth were slightly raised. "However, I don't know if I could be fortunate enough to go back out this time around."
Immediately after, Qin Yu's figure started to rapidly fly toward a far away location. It was precisely the residence of the three brothers.
Sixteen Demon Emperors were currently controlling the Sealing Element Refining Flame Array from all directions outside of the great formation array. Seeing the Peng Demon Emperor and the other two coming out, the sixteen Demon Emperors all bowed. "Your Majesty."
The Peng Demon Emperor slightly nodded.
"Listen, that Qingyu Immortal Mansion is inside the Sealing Element Refining Flame Array. You all are to burn everything inside the Sealing Element Refining Flame Array clean first. Afterwards, I'll personally go in and slowly handle that Qingyu Immortal Mansion." The Peng Demon Emperor ordered the sixteen Demon Emperors.
"Yes, Your Majesty."
The sixteen Demon Emperors immediately started executing one hand seal after another…
The Peng Demon Emperor took a glance at the scene. Currently, they were using Blue Heavenly Flames to burn all the mountain rocks and so on in the formation array. Only when they reached things that they cannot burn with the Blue Heavenly Flames would they use Extremely Silent Heavenly Flames.
The Peng Demon Emperor turned around to look. Immediately after, he started flying toward a plain below the Yellow Lion Mountain. Liu Tu and Ao Ko followed him and flew toward that plain. The Peng Demon Emperor landed and then casually crossed his legs and sat. "You two can sit too. My Demon Awareness has completely covered that Sealing Element Refining Flames Array, if anything were to happen, I would know immediately."
"Thank you Your Majesty."
Liu Tu and Ao Ku also sat down with their legs crossed.
"Your Majesty, this subordinate has a sentence that he doesn't know whether or not he should say." Said Ao Ku with a low voice.
"Speak." The Peng Demon Emperor said indifferently.
Ao Ku nodded. "Your Majesty, even if that Hei Yu was to cultivate, Your Majesty possessed an Inherited Treasure. So how could they Hei Yu possibly overtake Your Majesty? Why must Your Majesty place so much importance in killing him? Even if we were to spare his little life, it would still not mean much."
"You're shortsighted." The Peng Demon Emperor laughed lightly. "Liu Tu, Ao Ku, back when I was contesting for the status of the Peng Demon Emperor with Fang Chong, you ought to also know what happened."
Liu Tu nodded. "That Fang Chong and Your Majesty were both level seven Demon Emperor Super Divine Beasts. Your Majesty is a Golden Winged Great Peng Bird whereas he was a Dark Electric Great Peng Bird. You were both Super Divine Beasts of the Peng Clan… the contest for the title of Emperor is certainly something that we subordinates remember clearly."
"I must admit, if we were to compare merely the strength, then I would've been a bit inferior to that Fang Chong. Although the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird and the Golden Winged Great Peng Bird are both Super Divine Beasts, the Dark Electric Great Peng possess more than just fast speed, they also possess some mysterious and remarkable abilities. Back then, the chances of me obtaining the title of the Peng Demon Emperor were not very favorable. Liu Tu, back then, Fang Chong had married a woman from your clan. Do you still remember that?" Asked the Peng Demon Emperor while smiling.
Liu Tu nodded.
"That woman could also be considered a prodigy of my Eagle Clan. Her true form was merely that of an ordinary Eagle Clansman, she wasn't even a Divine Beast. However, her cultivation speed was comparable to that of a High Level Divine Beast." Liu Tu was currently the Clan Chief of the Eagle Clan. His true form was also that of the strongest High Level Divine Beast of the Eagle Clan, the Cyan Flame Eagle.
The Peng Demon Emperor nodded. "That Fang Chong was originally also a very ambitious and ruthless person. I had contested against him for my entire life. Back then, he was generally cold toward me. However, who would've expected that such a person would fall for a woman from your Eagle Clan. I merely planned a simple strategy but was able to cause Fang Chong to be seriously injured and even lose his life to my hand."
"For Fang Chong to lose to Your Majesty, that was also because of his insufficient training of his heart and mind." Flattered Liu Tu.
The Peng Demon Emperor nodded. "To be alive, how could one allow oneself to be bound by another? If I want to kill someone, then I'll kill. If I want to go against the Heavens, then I'll go against the Heavens. Only such would one be happy." The Peng Demon Emperor had a trace of cruel pride in his gaze.
"I, Zong Yan, could be considered as someone who feared neither the Heaven or Earth. However, who would've expect that when Fang Chong was greatly injured back then, he would cut open the space with all his might and managed to open the space tunnel between the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm with the Mortal Realm. He threw away that little bastard into that space channel. That, to the me that feared neither the Heaven or Earth, actually caused me to be uneasy and fearful."
Although the Peng Demon Emperor said he was fearful, his expression did instead did not change. "From Zong Jue, I came to know how frightening the child of the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird and a female Eagle Clansman, who was not even a Divine Beast, was. Not only is his speed comparable to mine, he also possesses all the remarkable abilities that the Dark Electric Great Peng Bird possessed. At the same time… the Eagle Clan's defense is usually pretty good. However, this Hei Yu's defense is even more frightening. He's truly a perfect Variation Super Divine Beast!"
"If that was all there was, then I would not be afraid. What I was most concerned about was his cultivation speed! He has only cultivated for only how many years? Yet, he's already a level five Demon Emperor! I have never heard of such a frightening cultivation speed from the Bird Clan ever before."
The Peng Demon Emperor laughed coldly. "Although this little bastard cannot threaten me in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm but if I were to continue to ignore him, then with his cultivation speed, it's very possible for him to surpass me one day in the Divine Realm. Ao Ku, say, would I ignore him and let him keep on living?"
Ao Ku came to a realization.
"This subordinate's sight was truly narrow and shallow. I truly have not considered the matters that'll happen after ascending to the Divine Realm." The majority of these Demon Emperors like Ao Ku were worried about the Divine Tribulation. They do not have the confidence that they'll be able to pass the Divine Tribulation, so who amongst them would care to think about what would happen after they have ascended to the Divine Realm?
However, the Peng Demon Emperor possessed an Inherited Treasure that allowed him to pass the Divine Tribulation effortlessly and had already began to think about the future.
"When Zong Jue spoke of this Hei Yu, I was almost completely certain that he was Fang Chong's little bastard. His true form was that of an Eagle. But does the Eagle Clan possess such a powerful Divine Beast? Furthermore, he also knew many of the remarkable abilities that only the Super Divine Beasts of the Peng Clan possessed; if his father wasn't Fang Chong, then how would he possess the remarkable abilities of the Peng Clan? To have such a son, Fang Chong should be proud. Unfortunately… today, his son would also die."
As the Peng Demon Emperor said those words, he raised his head and looked to the sky above him. "They ought to have about finished the refinement now!"
Inside the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Qin Yu, Hou Fei and Hei Yu were currently together.
"Xiao Hei, don't be too heartbroken." Qin Yu and Hou Fei were both looking at Hei Yu.
As the owner of the Jiang Lan's Realm, Qin Yu was able to hear the voices in the surroundings of the Jiang Lan's Realm. Thus, the chat of the Peng Demon Emperor, Ao Ku and Liu Tu earlier was naturally heard by him. When he heard that it was regarding Hei Yu's birth information, Qin Yu, with merely a thought, made the voice of the Peng Demon Emperor and them sound in the surroundings of the three brothers.
"So, it turns out that my father and mother are both dead." Hei Yu's eyes were a bit moist.
"Mixed Hair Bird, I'm about the same as you. Even now I still do not know who my father is." Hou Fei consoled Hei Yu.
"Xiao Hei, don't be sad." Qin Yu started to smile. He changed the topic and said. "Hey, I did not expect that the plan that I thought of out of the spot actually worked. Xiao Hei, Fei Fei, we do not have to hide inside the Jiang Lan's Realm the entire time anymore in the future."
"How come?" Hou Fei looked to Qin Yu. Hei Yu also dry his tears and looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu explained. "I know that the Peng Demon Emperor would think that the Jiang Lan's Realm would be by certain places near where I landed. However, he never expected that… during the first time I fought against Ao Ku, the Jiang Lan's Realm had already turned into a speck of dust and attached to his clothes."
With how exceptional the Jiang Lan's Realm was, even if Ao Ko were to use his Demon Awareness to search, he would still be unable to find the speck of dust that the Jiang Lan's Realm had turned into.
"They're currently outside the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array and have just finished talking. I suspect that they'll be flying up now."
"Let's go up." The Peng Demon Emperor said indifferently.
Ao Ku and Liu Tu accepted the order. The three of them flew toward the sky rapidly. None of them noticed that during the moment when they were flying toward the sky, a speck of dust dropped from Ao Ku's body, landed on the ground, and blended into the plain, becoming one of the countless dust specks in the sand.
