Inside a palace within the Black Crow Star's Imperial City.
The leaders and big shots from all over the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realms as well as their important subordinates are all gathered here. There are a total of over twenty people. However, some of the people amongst them are only here to observe and cannot do anything.
The ones with the true right of speech was the Dragon Emperor, Peng Demon Emperor, Ox Demon Emperor, the side of the Immortal Realm and the side of the Devil Realm for a total of five different groups.
The side of the Immortal Realm was composed of the Flame Emperor, Emperor Liu, Emperor Yu and the Mystic Emperor combined. The side of the Devil Realm was composed of the Blood Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor, Asura Devil Emperor as well as the two hidden experts combined.
The twenty some people within the palace were separated into five different groups. On the side of the Peng Demon Emperor sat three people: Peng Demon Emperor, Ao Ku and Liu Tu.
As the person who proposed this matter, the Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan stood up first. As usual, the Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan wore gold from head to toe and his facial expression was as cold as always.
"Everyone are the leaders of the numerous powers within the Immortal Realm, Devil Realm and the Demon Realm. I believe none of you all wish for an unstable factor to appear within your domain. This unstable factor is precisely the Bewitching God Temple. Brother Chi Qing had just ascended. However, I believe everyone knew of brother Chi Qing's strength… if one day, your enemy or subordinate were to obtain a treasure comparable to that of brother Chi Qing's, I believe everyone would be able to imagine the consequences." Said the Peng Demon Emperor indifferently.
A black clothed old man that leaded the side of the Devil Realm said indifferently. "Brother Zong Yan, it's better for you to go to the main topic."
"What brother Mo Luo said is correct." Peng Demon Emperor slightly nodded.
Ever since the Cyan Emperor invited everyone from the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm to come and attend his Divine Tribulation, the Blood Devil Emperor and them of the Devil Realm discovered that there were actually two exceptional experts in the Devil Realm and immediately decided to get to know them. This time around, they had invited these two great experts to come out and help oversee the matter regarding the Devil Realm.
These two men were respectively Mo Luo and Mo Kong. They were both level nine Devil Emperor level experts. As for their true strength, no one knew about it yet.
"I shall get to the main topic then. The reason why I invited everyone today was precisely in hope that everyone would agree to sealing off the entrance of the Bewitching God Temple." The Peng Demon Emperor Zong Yan spoke of his aim clearly.
"Seal off the entrance to the Bewitching God Temple?" A voice sounded. The person who spoke was a handsome golden clothed youth. This golden clothed youth was dazzling with grandeur like the sun. "Brother Zong Yan ought to know that there are two great entrances to the Bewitching God Temple. How do we go about sealing off the entrance in the Dark Star Realm?"
Peng Demon Emperor said indifferently. "We merely need to seal off the entrance that's located in the Demon Realm. I do not believe that…. there would be anyone in the Immortal Realm, Devil Realm or the Demon Realm that is capable of entering the Bewitching God Temple from the Dark Star Realm's entrance."
Everyone grew silent.
All of these big shots of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm knew of the hostility the Dark Star Realm had toward their respective realms. If someone from the Immortal Realm, Devil Realm or the Demon Realm were to enter the Dark Star Realm, they would be lucky if they haven't been killed by them directly. Allowing them to enter the Bewitching God Temple through the Dark Star Realm's entrance? That was without question.
"Everyone, please speak out whether or not you'll agree to this. I'll voice my opinion first. My Bird Clan has agreed to this matter." Said the Peng Demon Emperor directly.
"My Beast Clan also agree to this." The Ox Demon Emperor also nodded and said.
"My Dragon Clan, agreed." The Dragon Emperor also spoke his standpoint.
All of a sudden, three amongst the five parties have agreed to it. The couple Immortal Emperors from the side of the Immortal Realm were currently discussing over it. As for Mo Luo and Mo Kong, they were not in the slightest anxious. They were currently waiting for the result of the discussion from the Blood Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor and the Asura Devil Emperor. The only reason why Mo Luo and Mo Kong agreed to come was because the Blood Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor and Asura Devil Emperor had agreed to one of their request. Otherwise, why would they possibly bother to show up?
Flame Emperor, Emperor Yu and Emperor Liu discussed about the matter for a moment before Emperor Liu spoke out as the representative of the side of the Immortal Realm. "My Immortal Realm also agree to this matter. However, after we seal off the Bewitching God Temple, how long would it take before we reopen it? Also, how many people are allowed to enter it every time we reopen it? That is something that I believe we still need to discuss greatly."
"That's of course." The Peng Demon Emperor also had a smile on his face.
Mo Luo received a voice transmission from Asura Devil Emperor. He then nodded and said. "My Devil Realm side also agree to it. Merely, we had the same question as the side of the Immortal Realm. When would the Bewitching God Temple be opened and how many people amongst every side would be allowed entrance every time it's opened? That is something that we still have to negotiate on."
The Peng Demon Emperor, Dragon Emperor and the Great Ape Emperor actually wanted to shut off the Bewitching God Temple forever.
[TL: Yes I know, didn't know Great Ape Emperor was here. Who knew.]
If they were to shut off the Bewitching God Temple for good, then their superiority was something that none of the other powers would be able to catch up to.
However, they also knew that it was impossible to shut off the Bewitching God Temple forever. For one, the Immortal Realm and the Devil Realm would oppose it. Secondly, the other Super Divine Beasts within the Demon Realm, such as the Phoenix, Seven Colored Peacock, Purple Eyed Ox Demon King and the Fire Qilin would all oppose to it. Furthermore, the other clans within the Demon Realm would also be in opposition to it. They would not give up the opportunity to allow themselves to strengthen and expand.
"Well then, since everyone has agreed to it, then the matter of sealing the Bewitching God Temple is thus settled. Now, we shall discuss how many years between each time the Bewitching God Temple opens and how many people are allowed to enter every time." Said the Peng Demon Emperor indifferently.
Soon after, all the major powers started to discuss.
From the viewpoint of the Peng Demon Emperor and the Dragon Emperor, the longer the blockage the better, the lesser the amount of people that were allowed in the better. However, the Immortal Realm, the Devil Realm and even the Ox Demon Emperor were not really in favor of that.
Three entire days.
After using all kinds of methods, the five sides finally agreed to a proposal that all five sides could barely accept.
"Good, since everyone has agreed to it, then from today on, us five sides must always be in accordance to this agreement. If any side were to violate the plan, the other four sides shall join hand and kill them." Said the Peng Demon Emperor coldly.
The Dragon Emperor and them nodded.
This agreement that is decided upon by the leaders of the five different sides, this agreement that would last for countless years, was thus determined like so.
The details of the agreement: the Demon Realm's entrance to the Bewitching God Temple shall be sealed. In ordinary times, no one was allowed to enter it. Then every ten thousand years, the entrance to the Bewitching God Temple shall be opened once. And upon opening, each of the five sides would be allowed one person to enter it.
The side of the Immortal Realm and the Devil Realm possessed numerous powers and were very chaotic. Thus, the person who is to be allowed to enter shall be determined by the powers within the Immortal Realm and the Devil Realm.
Opening once every ten thousand years and all five sides could only submit a single person to enter; it appeared to be very few. However, this was the result that was obtained after a lot of talks by the Immortal Realm and Devil Realm.
According to what the Peng Demon Emperor had originally proposed at the beginning, he wanted the Bewitching God Temple to be opened once in every ten million years!
The proposal by the Peng Demon Emperor had shocked everyone. It was clear that he did not wish for the Immortal Realm or the Devil Realm to obtain any treasure. Finally, after continuous discussions, the time was reduced to ten thousand years.
In actuality, the Peng Demon Emperor also knew that the time that he proposed at the beginning was not something that could happen. Merely, the Peng Demon Emperor knew that the longer the time he proposed, the more leeway there would be in the discussions.
"The Bewitching God Temple shall be opened once every ten thousand years. Of our fives sides, we are only allowed one person per side to enter into the Bewitching God Temple every time it opened. As this matter has been determined, we shall now discuss about the method of sealing off the entrance to the Bewitching God Temple." The Peng Demon Emperor brought about a new subject.
The Dragon Emperor smiled and said. "Isn't the Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array very good for the job? I do not believe that there would be anyone that's capable of breaking through it."
"That's right, just have those seventy two Demon Emperors continue their guard." The Ox Demon Emperor also said while laughing.
The Peng Demon Emperor's brows creased. They wanted to have his seventy two Demon Emperor’s waste their time there till the end of time? The scheme from the other four sides was truly too much.
The Peng Demon Emperor suddenly smiled and said. "If those seventy two Demon Emperors were to continue to arrange the Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array, then where would they themselves be at? If they were to stay outside of the entrance, I fear that they might be killed. If the people setting up the Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array were to die, then the formation array would naturally be broken. Thus, the seventy two Demon Emperors could only stay inside the entrance."
"What you said is reasonable. It is indeed not safe for them to stay outside the entrance." Emperor Yu nodded and said.
"Since you all wanted my men to guard the Bewitching God Temple's entrance the entire time, I too would not have any complaint regarding that. We can just let them continue to guard the entrance." The Peng Demon Emperor suddenly said while smiling.
The Dragon Emperor, Ox Demon Emperor, Blood Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor and them all came to a realization.
To be able to stay inside the entrance meant that they could enter into the Bewitching God Temple and gather Divine Artifacts. If the seventy two Demon Emperors of the Bird Clan were to continue to stay there the entire time, who knows how many Divine Artifacts they'll be able to obtain.
"That won't do." Said the Ox Demon Emperor as he laughed. "For one, we cannot let you suffer such a loss. Secondly, this would cause embezzlement to be very easy to occur."
"That's right." The Dragon Emperor nodded and said. "How about this, us five sides would all dispatch some Emperor level experts and set up the Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array together. In that case, the Emperor level experts from all five sides could monitor each other and thus prevent the matter of embezzlement from occurring."
The Blood Devil Emperor laughed grimly and said. "That's hard to say. If they were to come into a mutual agreement, they could still embezzle. Thus, we must strictly order that whoever it is that were to enter the Bewitching God Temple and seek for Divine Artifacts while they're on guard duty would be chased and killed by all three realms."
"Right." Peng Demon Emperor also nodded.
Following, this suggestion received the approval from all the other parties.
"Eh, can the power of the Emperor level experts we dispatched be different? There's Immortal Elemental Energy, Devil Elemental Energy and Demon Elemental Energy. If they were to blend with one another, would it cause a rejection and cause the formation array to collapse?" Emperor Liu said in puzzlement.
Peng Demon Emperor laughed and said. "Brother Liu is not familiar with the Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array. This Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array is actually stronger the more mixed the energy of the people setting up the formation array are."
"Oh, it's that peculiar?" The Black Devil Emperor of the Devil Realm was also startled.
"That's precisely the case. You all would come to know it when we display it later." The Peng Demon Emperor said confidently. This Eight-Nine Space Sealing Array is a great formation array of the Bird Clan, thus he was naturally very familiar with it.
Peng Demon Emperor continued. "Now we shall discuss about how many people are we each sending out. Seventy two is a number that's a bit hard to distribute amongst the five sides."
After another round of discussions.
The final result of the discussion: the Bird Clan, Dragon Clan and the Beast Clan would each dispatch fourteen Demon Emperors. As for the Immortal Realm and Devil Realm, they would each dispatch fifteen Emperor level experts. This amount to a total of seventy two Emperor level experts.
Afterall, if one were to talk about the Immortal Realm or the Devil Realm as a whole, they are a respectively a bit stronger than the Dragon Clan or the Bird Clan.
The entrance would be opened once every ten thousand years. The amount of time it would stay open is a single year. If one were to not come out within a single year's time, then they would be chased and killed by all five sides.
On the year the Immortal Realm, Devil Realm and Demon Realm set up the agreement regarding the Bewitching God Temple, each of the five sides have all dispatched a single person to inspect the outside region of the Bewitching God Temple. The next time the Bewitching God Temple reopens was to be ten thousand years after.
A year later.
The five people who were lucky enough to be dispatched to search the outside regions of the Bewitching God Temple have all returned. These five people were: Ao Ku of the Bird Clan, Ao Lan of the Dragon Clan, the Ox Demon Emperor himself of the Beasts Clan, Mo Luo of the Devil Realm and Emperor Liu of the Immortal Realm.
These five people have power on par with each other.
On a planet closest to the Bewitching God Temple.
At this moment, the Peng Demon Emperor, Dragon Emperor and the rest were here.
"The outside regions of the Bewitching God Temple was truly weird. To be regulated to leave within a year's time, I too could only extend my best capabilities to scour the outside regions of the Bewitching God Temple. In this single year… my luck was pretty good. I managed to obtain a single Low Quality Divine Artifact." Said the Ox Demon Emperor carefreely.
The Dragon Emperor laughed and said. "You've had it pretty good. Of the five that went in this time, only you managed to obtain a Divine Artifact. The rest of them didn't obtain anything."
Divine Artifacts were very hard to obtain.
Back when the Bewitching God Temple wasn't sealed, there would frequently be Emperor level experts entering it to try their luck. However, trying to test their luck our in the outside regions of the Bewitching God Temple and to the best of the abilities, only one amongst a hundred Emperor level experts would be able to obtain a Divine Artifact.
After the matter regarding the sealing of the Bewitching God Temple had finished, the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm had returned to the dullness of before. Occassionaly, a new person would become famous and their name widespread. However, they are incomparable to Qin Yu and his brothers.
In merely a couple hundred years, Qin Yu and Hou Fei's strength were comparable to that of level nine Immortal Emperors whereas Hei Yu's approaches that of a level eight Immortal Emperor.
Qin Yu and his brothers had grown equally as famous as the Hidden Emperor and his two brothers, people of the peak of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, for such a miracle-like thing to happen again was extremely hard.
Inside the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Qin Yu and his brothers were currently together. Qin Yu was watching Hou Fei and Hei Yu sparring.
"Bang!" A spear swept across. As if it was penetrating through space, it suddenly appeared in front of Hou Fei. Hou Fei who was startled by its appearance was forcefully knock onto the ground by it. The ground had cracked open.
Qin Yu clapped his hands and laughed. "Good. Fei Fei, well wasn't that karma? See how you were always bully Xiao Hei in the past?"
"Mixed Hair Bird is truly a freak." Hou Fei stood up aggrievedly. "While he's fighting against me, he actually learned my stick technique. After changing it and improving it a bit, he's using my stick technique as a spear technique."
Stick, spear, the difference between the two wasn't great. One could use a spear to display the techniques of a stick.
"You can't say it like that. For Xiao Hei to be able to beat you, it's not merely because of the spear technique and stick technique. What's most important was that his speed is faster than yours and his movement more agile. Furthermore… his defense is stronger than yours. He does not have to care about his body's defense like you do. All he needed to do is attack and didn't have to defend at all. Thus, you'll naturally lose to him." Said Qin Yu while smiling.
Hou Fei humped lowly a couple times and didn't say anything.
Hei Yu continued to stand there coldly. He held the Cloud Piercing Spear with a single hand and said coldly. "Monkey, you've trampled upon me for several hundred years, and today, I've only managed to smack you with a single spear technique; this debt of mine has yet to be paid completely."
Hou Fei had a blank face.
Qin Yu immediately started to laugh. He felt that his two brothers were truly amusing.
"Mn?" Qin Yu suddenly had a delightful expression on his face. "It's been several hundred years now. After all these years, I've finally managed to absorb enough of my body's energy. The energy from the flour paste space could finally enter into the ninth stage of the Stellar Transformation."
