Book 13 Three Brothers - Chapter 33 – Training atop the Meteorite
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Phillip and Robin
The sixteen Demon Emperors were floating in the air in their respective positions. At the same time they were controlling the Extremely Silent Heavenly Flames and burning that final lump of liquid. The Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan, Ao Ku and Liu Tu have arrived beside the airspace of the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array.
Upon seeing that the Peng Demon Emperor had come, the sixteen Demon Emperors immediately greeted him respectfully.
"Never had I expected that after refining less than half of the Yellow Lion Mountain, we'd actually obtain materials to refine a Top Quality Demon Artifact." Said the Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan with a light laugh. His current mood was extremely good. "Liu Tu, Ao Ku, have you two discovered the Qingyu Immortal Mansion?"
Ao Ku and Liu Tu both spread out their Demon Awareness to search for the Qingyu Immortal Mansion. Their Demon Awareness covered the entire Sealing Element Refining Flames Array, including that lump of liquid that was being burned and boiled unceasingly. After a long time, Ao Ku and Liu Tu were still carefully inspecting that lump of liquid.
"It's better I do it myself." Said the Peng Demon Emperor indifferently.
"This subordinate is incompetent." Said Ao Ku and Liu Tu respectfully.
"That Qin Yu most certainly turned that Qingyu Immortal Mansion into a droplet. Unfortunately, no matter how hard he tries to imitate the liquid, it's still fake. There will certainly be a loophole." The Peng Demon Emperor's Demon Awareness was also spread out. It turned into numerous waves and covered that lump of liquid in an instant.
Trying to distinguish each and every droplet from the lump of liquid was extremely hard. Ao Ku and Liu Tu stood to the side and didn't dare to disturb.
Below, at the location where the Peng Demon Emperor, Ao Ku and Liu Tu were resting before.
A figure suddenly appeared. It was precisely Qin Yu who had changed his appearance.
Qin Yu raised his head and took a glance. The corners of his mouth were slightly raised. "Peng Demon Emperor, you can continue to slowly search. If you find me, then I'll truly admire you." After staying for merely a blink of an eye's time, Qin Yu disappeared from the plain.
"Mn?" Ao Ku turned around and looked to below.
"What's wrong?" Liu Tu who stood beside him asked. At the same time, he also turned around to look below. The plain was exactly the same as before, there wasn't a single thing on it. "What are you looking at?"
"Nothing." Ao Ku turned back forward and smiled to Liu Tu beside him. "My brain must have played a trick on me." Ao Ku had actually sensed an extremely slight amount of energy fluctuation. That fluctuation merely lasted for a wink's time before disappearing. Ao Ku had thought that it was his own misperception.
Liu Tu laughed. "Let's wait until His Majesty finds out where that Qingyu Immortal Mansion is. After we take care of Qin Yu and them, we won't have much to do in the future anymore."
"That's true." Ao Ku sighed.
With their status, what matters in the Bird Clan would actually need them to move out in normal circumstances?
Unfortunately, the current Ao Ku and Liu Tu had no idea that the current Qin Yu had already arrived on the Interstellar Conveying Array of the Black Crow Star. Effortlessly, he had escaped via the Interstellar Conveying Array. As for the Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan, he was still trying to find the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
"Never had I expected that this Qin Yu's ability to conceal himself would be truly profound." The Peng Demon Emperor no longer had any smile on his face.
After being unable to find the Qingyu Immortal Mansion after such a long time, he too had grown angry.
"I do not believe that I can't find it." The Peng Demon Emperor's gaze was icy-cold. His Demon Awareness split into millions and millions of parts. Each and every one of his Demon Awareness parts then covered a speck of liquid droplet each. The Peng Demon Emperor was carefully examining each and every speck of liquid droplet for differences. Unfortunately, no matter how hard he tried, he was unable to find anything.
After two entire hours!
The Peng Demon Emperor ended up admitting his defeat. Even an extremely conceited individual like him couldn't last any longer.
"All of you, use your Demon Awareness to search. Find out exactly where that Qingyu Immortal Mansion is hiding." Said the Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan coldly. His gaze swept past the sixteen Demon Emperors as well as Liu Tu and Ao Ku. "Whoever manages to find the Qingyu Immortal Mansion shall be rewarded greatly!"
"Yes, Your Majesty."
Immediately, the sixteen Demon Emperors, along with Ao Ku and Liu Tu, a total of eighteen people, started to carefully search for the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
The result was self-evident, still a failure.
"Your Majesty, this subordinate has an idea." Suddenly said a Demon Emperor respectfully.
"Speak." The Peng Demon Emperor's eyes shined.
That Demon Emperor said respectfully. "We merely have to control the Extremely Silent Heavenly Flame to make it occasionally burn and occasionally not burn. That lump of liquid would switch between solid and liquid form.. I reckon that no matter how strong that Qingyu Immortal Mansion's ability to change itself is, there would inevitably be a slip-up."
This method was practically the same method that Emperor Yu used in order to find Qin Yu in his Sealing Element Refining Flames Array.
"Good." Upon hearing that, the Peng Demon Emperor thought that it was a feasible idea. "You are to command and deploy everyone. Quickly, find that Qingyu Immortal Mansion for me."
"Yes, Your Majesty."
That Demon Emperor had a cheerful expression in his eyes. Immediately, he promptly went to command the rest of the Demon Emperors. He would make them burn the lump of liquid with Extremely Silent Heavenly Flames. And then suddenly make them remove the Extremely Silent Heavenly Flames. By continuing this process, the lump of liquid would occasionally condense together, and then in the next instant melt into liquid. All of the Demon Emperors were carefully searching for the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Still a failure!
Six entire hours. The Peng Demon Emperor and his subordinates had used a wide variety of methods. The Peng Demon Emperor even went into the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array himself and refined that lump of liquid into a Top Quality Demon Artifact. He even dripped his blood on it to make it his own.
After becoming the master of that Top Quality Demon Artifact, the Peng Demon Emperor had also carefully inspected it. However, he was still unable to find the Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
The Peng Demon Emperor even removed the blood contract with that Top Quality Demon Artifact and used his Peng Claws to directly crush that Top Quality Demon Artifact into pieces.
At last, the Peng Demon Emperor had no choice but to admit that there's an eight or nine out of ten chance that the Qingyu Immortal Mansion had already left the Sealing Element Refining Flames Array. He did not believe that he was unable to discover the Qingyu Immortal Mansion even after using all those different kinds of methods to find it.
"How exactly did that Qin Yu escape from here?"
This question had vexed the Peng Demon Emperor for a long, long time!
When the Peng Demon Emperor finally gave up on searching for the Qingyu Immortal Mansion, Qin Yu had already left the star field that the Black Crow Star is located in. He was currently rushing toward the northeast of the Bird Clan's Territory with astonishing speed. Occasionally, he would use the Interstellar Conveying Arrays and occasionally he would use his own Greater Teleportation to move about.
In merely three days, Qin Yu had arrived on a star field in the northeastern section of the Bird Clan's Territory… 'Cyan Flame Star Field."
Cyan Flame Star Field, located toward the extreme north section of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. To its east was the Bird Clan's Territory's most chaotic location, the 'Chaotic Star Field.' Further eastward was… the location of the legendary Bewitching God Temple! The Bewitching God Temple was located between the Bird Clan's Territory and the Dark Star Realm.
The Chaotic Star Field was truly chaotic. It was so chaotic that even Qin Yu didn't want to enter it. Thus, he decided to stop in the more peaceful Cyan Flame Star Field.
The Cyan Flame Star Field was the headquarters of the Eagle Clan. The Eagle Clan was one of the extremely powerful clans amongst the Bird Clan. When comparing strength, the Eagle clan would only be second to the Peng Clan. The current Clan Chief of the Eagle Clan was the level eight Demon Emperor Liu Tu. He was also one of the three great experts underneath the Peng Demon Emperor. Of course, now that Bai Feng had died, only Ao Ku and Liu Tu remained.
Cyan Flame Star Field, Flowing Mist Star.
A man was currently hovering in the vast skies of the Flowing Mist Star and looking down from above. His gaze swept past all directions.
"What a beautiful and tranquil planet." Qin Yu had a smile on his face. "Mn, this'll do. I've decided to make this planet the place where we brothers will stay in the future." Afterwards, Qin Yu directly landed onto the ground.
With an intention of his mind, Hou Fei, Hei Yu, Bai Ling and Hei Tong have all appeared.
"Big brother where is this? This place seems pretty beautiful." Said Hou Fei while laughing.
Qin Yu nodded and said. "This is the Flowing Mist Star of the Cyan Flame Star Field. The Flowing Mist Star is a border planet of the Cyan Flame Star Field. According to the introduction written on the Interstellar Map that big brother Wuming gave me, this planet is a very ordinary planet; it is about as ordinary as the Maple Moon Star that I was on before. The strongest people here are likely only level seven or eight Demon Kings."
"Big brother, did you decid to choose this place as the residence of us brothers?" Hei Yu was dressed in a white gown. His long hair was drifting in the wind. He was giving off a sense of elegance.
Qin Yu nodded. He then looked to Hei Tong. "While it doesn't matter much to us three brothers, but Little Tong cannot be with us the entire time and not enter a city. That's why I picked here to be our future residence."
"Ah!" Hei Tong's eyes shined brightly. "Eldest Uncle, will I truly be able to go out and play?"
"Don't worry. We cannot ignorantly step onto internal areas of this planet. Who knows whether or not there are subordinates of the Peng Demon Emperor in there?" Qin Yu lightly smiled and said.
Bai Ling spoke. "Big brother, although the Peng Demon Emperor's strength spreads wide and far, his troops are only gathered on certain galaxies' large or important planets. On a small planet like the Flowing Mist Star, there are barely any foreigners. Majority of them are just passerbys from the Interstellar Conveying Arrays."
"That I know, that's the reason why I chose such an ordinary planet." Qin Yu nodded. "But, it's better to be safe than sorry."
Suddenly, six figures appeared on the ground. Of these six people, one of them was a level four Demon Emperor Dong Xue. The other five people were two level nine Demon Kings and three level eight Demon Kings. They were all Spiritual Beasts from the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas.
"Master." Said Dong Xue and the rest respectfully.
"Big brother, this is?" Hou Fei, Hei Yu and the rest were all confused.
Qin Yu instead did not respond. He said directly to Dong Xue. "Dong Xue, this planet is the Flowing Mist Star, an extremely ordinary planet. The strongest person here is merely a level seven or eight Demon King. I command you all to control this planet completely within a hundred years."
"Master's intention is?" Dong Xue asked puzzled.
Qin Yu smiled and said. "It's very simple. Control this planet completely and everywhere. I want to make the overwhelming majority of the people on the Flowing Mist Star controlled by us. Even if a foreigner were to step onto the Flowing Mist Star, you must know about that too. It'll be fine once you are able to accomplish that."
"Local tyrant?" Said Hou Fei while laughing with a gaga sound. "Big brother, your intention is for us to become the local tyrant here?"
"Not us, but Dong Xue!" Said Qin Yu with a light laugh. "Furthermore, Dong Xue shall also become a background controller. The acting controllers shall be these five Demon Kings. They shall control the entire Flowing Mist Star. As for anything that they cannot settle easily, Dong Xue would then take care of that."
"Master, for such a planet, a single year is more than enough for the six of us to control it." Said Dong Xue confidently.
A planet like the Flowing Mist Star was naturally extremely easy for a level four Demon Emperor like Dong Xue to obtain. Even if it was to achieve complete control, a year is indeed more than enough.
"Eldest uncle, you're having them control the Flowing Mist Star, then what do we do?" Asked Hei Tong.
Qin Yu smiled and said. "You ought to know that I, your father, your second uncle and even your mother have statuses that cannot be leaked. Such a thing like controlling the planet does not require us to do it ourselves. We merely need to hide ourselves in a secret place and not allow anyone to know about us."
Hou Fei, Hei Yu and the rest of the people's eyes shone. They had completely understood Qin Yu's intention.
Qin Yu's gaze grew sharper. He stared at Dong Xue. "Dong Xue, I'm giving you a hundred years, after a hundred years, you must obtain a level of control where, even if the Peng Demon Emperor were to send someone to the Flowing Mist Star, you'd be able to obtain all information regarding that person."
"Although the Bird Clan's Territories all belong to the Peng Demon Emperor, I want this Flowing Mist Star to be under our complete control. When the subordinates of the Peng Demon Emperor arrive here, they shall become blind. Whatever they see… shall be what we want them to see. Dong Xue, are you able to accomplish that?" Qin Yu looked at Dong Xue.
Dong Xue said confidently. "Please rest assured Master. A hundred years? This subordinate will definitely be able to achieve it."
"Xiao Hei, Bai Ling, do you still remember what I have told you two?" Said Qin Yu with a smile.
Hei Yu and Bai Ling nodded. Hei Yu rubbed his daughter's head. "Big brother, what you said was correct. I must let this child experience the world for herself."
"Father, Mother, Eldest Uncle, you all…." Hei Tong had a face filled with puzzlement.
Qin Yu looked to Dong Xue. "Dong Xue, I am leaving Xiao Tong in your hands. You can let Little Tong live in the Flowing Mist Star for these hundred years. Your status shall be her master. Peng Demon Emperor and them do not know of Little Tong's existence, she should not be in any danger."
"Yes, Master." Said Dong Xue respectfully.
"Father, Mother, Eldest Uncle, Second Uncle, could it be that you're not going to stay on the Flowing Mist Star with me?" At this moment, Hei Tong had came to a realization.
"For now, no. This place is still not sufficiently safe yet." Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
Stay on the Flowing Mist Star?
At the very least, it's a no go for now. Qin Yu already had a plan in his mind. He would spend a hundred years in the Cosmic Space to comprehend the cosmos. Qin Yu really wanted to thoroughly comprehend the next stage of the 'Stellar Transformation' cultivation technique.
Likely, compared with the 'Nine Steps Dark Gold Body' body strengthening technique, Qin Yu cared more about his own 'Stellar Transformation.'
After being reluctant to part, Little Hei Tong followed Dong Xue and the other five Demon Kings into the city of the Flowing Mist Star. As for Hei Yu, Bai Ling and Hou Fei, they entered into the Jiang Lan's Realm. According to the plan, they are to spend a thousand years in the Jiang Lan's Realm.
A thousand years in the Jiang Lan's Realm was a hundred years outside.
Hou Fei and Hei Yu were to train in the Jiang Lan's Realm whereas Qin Yu was to train in the Cosmic Space.
The boundless Cosmic Space. Countless amount of enormous planets were slowly floating in the Cosmic Space. And, at this moment, next to a beautiful blue colored planet were several tens of enormous meteorites flying past. The meteorite in the middle of these several tens of meteorites was the largest; it had the length of close to ten thousand miles. However, such a size could only be considered as extremely small in the Cosmos.
In the middle of the surface of this meteorite was a man sitting cross-legged. It was precisely Qin Yu.
Surveying his surroundings, comprehending the boundless cosmos, this was the current cultivation method of Qin Yu. Sitting atop this meteorite, Qin Yu was drifting about the Cosmos unceasingly…
