Jade Cloud Star. Inside Man Qian's residence in the Imperial City.
Qin Yu had been waiting for Man Qian in the guest room the whole time. Man Qian had left for the Transmission Secret Array to send a transmission to the Ox Demon Emperor. At this moment, only Qin Yu, Shi Xin, and his two brothers were left in the guest room. Qin Yu's gaze was cast toward Shi Zhan.
Qin Yu had a thought.
Shi Zhan was Xiao Hei's spiritual beast, he should be able to sense where Xiao Hei is.
"Shi Zhan, you should be able to sense where my third brother is at right? Do you know where he is?" Asked Qin Yu directly.
Shi Zhan nodded and said. "Lord Qin Yu, I am able to sense where master is located at. He should be located at the northeast direction. The distance from here is very far."
Qin Yu frowned. Northeast was too vague of a direction. According to the map, the Dragon Clan's territory, the Bird Clan's territory and even the Dark Star Realm could be considered as toward the northeast.
"Lord Qin Yu, Lord Hou Fei had previously brought me to find master before. At that time, I discovered that master is located in the Bird Clan's territory. As for where he is at precisely, I am not certain." Said Shi Zhan helplessly.
"Fei Fei had tried to find Xiao Hei before? What's the result?" Qin Yu immediately asked.
Shi Zhan shook his big head and said. "At that moment, Lord Hou Fei wanted to go to the territory of the Bird Clan to search for master. However, we were stopped by His Majesty the Great Ape Emperor en route. Lord Hou Fei was also forcibly brought back by His Majesty the Great Ape Emperor."
"Forcibly brought back?" Qin Yu looked at Shi Zhan and was awaiting for his explanation.
"The Bird Clan has some friction with us." Man Qian walked in from outside. "Brother Qin Yu, Hou Fei is a Fiery Eyed Water Ape. As a Super Divine Beast, how could he be allowed to rashly endanger himself? If he were to try to wander the Bird Clan's territory with merely his strength of a Demon King, the Great Ape Emperor would certainly not allow that."
Qin Yu also understood.
Even if Hou Fei was a Super Divine Beast, as he was only at the level of a Demon King, his attack power was definitely very low. If he were to enter the territory of the Bird Clan, then he might be killed by others.
"Big brother Man Qian, earlier when you sent the transmission to the Ox Demon Emperor, was there any result?" Qin Yu immediately asked.
Man Qian laughed and said. "Wait three days. After His Majesty and I communicated, he had already immediately set out to come back. As for where Hou Fei is located… according to what His Majesty said, he wanted me to inform you that without His Majesty's help, it would be impossible for you to get there."
Qin Yu was startled.
Where exactly was Hou Fei located at? That place seemed to be very mysterious.
"It should be fine, it's just three days. When that time comes, His Majesty would help you personally. You definitely will be able to meet your brother Hou Fei again." Man Qian patted Qin Yu's shoulder and comforted him.
Qin Yu nodded. "This is the only way."
"Lord Qin Yu, I have a matter that I don't know if I should say or not. It is relating to the master." Shi Zhan who stood on the side looked at Qin Yu.
Qin Yu's eyes shined.
"Speak." Qin Yu looked toward Shi Zhan.
Shi Zhan had a very serious expression. "I am master's spiritual beast and could roughly sense master's location at all times. However, before Lord Hou Fei even went to find master, I had already discovered… that master's position had been moving about a large distance."
"About a large distance?" Qin Yu's expression changed.
Shi Zhan was located so far from the Bird Clan's territory but was still able to sense that Xiao Hei was moving about a large distance. Why would Xiao Hei run around in the territory of the Bird Clan for no reason?
"That's right, it's about a large distance. At the very least, he had been traveling about seven to eight star fields." Shi Zhan nodded and said.
"Being chased!" Qin Yu immediately said those words. He also started to get nervous.
Xiao Hei had grew up together with him, they were like brothers. If Xiao Hei was really in that kind of circumstance, then…
"Something's amiss. According to what big brother Wuming said, he had never heard about there being a powerful High Level or Super Divine Beast ascending to the Bird Clan other than Zong Jue. Xiao Hei possessed inherited memories but the Eagle Clan does not possess a Divine Beast like Xiao Hei. Xiao Hei ought to be a Divine Beast that the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm had never seen before."
Qin Yu was thinking at a rapid pace.
"Xiao Hei had only recently arrived in the Demon Realm, his strength was still weak. Even if he had enemies, they should also not be very strong. For him to move about at a large scale, I'd suspect that it's most likely because of some other reason." Qin Yu rejected the possibility that Xiao Hei was being chased.
As for what sort of circumstance his third brother Hei Yu was in, Qin Yu currently was unaware. As for Hou Fei, he was at a mysterious place. In order to know where this place is, Qin Yu would have to wait three more days.
He had to wait till that His Majesty the Ox Demon Emperor returns.
At this moment, Qin Yu still didn't know that the Immortal Realm's Emperor Yu had already made a breakthrough and became a level nine Immortal Emperor.
Qin Yu chatted with Man Qian for half a day and was then arranged by Man Qian to enter his residence. Qin Yu directly entered the Jiang Lan's Realm.
Inside the Jiang Lan's Realm.
There are all kinds of buildings and constructions in the Jiang Lan's Realm. The building that Qin Yu picked to be his residence was very close to Wu Lan's. Qin Yu had only arrived at his place and Wu Lan had walked over.
"Qin Yu, so you've come." Said Wu Lan while smiling.
Qin Yu smiled helplessly and said. "Now I have to wait for the Ox Demon Emperor to come back. I'm more used to quietly train in the Jiang Lan's Realm. Ah, that's right."
Qin Yu suddenly recalled a thing.
Bewitching God Painting!
Immortal Emperor Ni Yang had previously issued a warning that one must reach the Emperor level before one can open the Bewitching God Painting.
"Immortal Emperor Ni Yang had described that Bewitching God Painting as extremely extraordinary like and Emperor Yu and them were even extremely desperate for it. It was also claimed to be the number one treasure in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. I, instead, want to see what exactly it is."
Qin Yu took out the 'Bewitching God Painting.'
Seeing the Bewitching God Painting in Qin Yu's hand, Wu Lan's eyes shined. "Bewitching God Painting!"
"Mister Wu Lan, do you also know of the Bewitching God Painting?" Qin Yu looked at Wu Lan.
Wu Lan replied while beaming with smiles. "Won't you know once you open it?"
Qin Yu nodded, he than started to agitate the Black Hole energy within his body and rush them forth into the Bewitching God Painting. Under the attack of the Black Hole energy, the barrier that was set up by was ultimately broken through.
At the moment the barrier was broken through, Qin Yu's eyes shined.
The Bewitching God Painting was radiating a captivating light. Rays of star atlas like, map shaped, light were flying out from the Bewitching God Painting. Soon, they disappeared. Qin Yu immediately let his blood drip onto the Bewitching God Painting to be its master. Then his Immortal Awareness immediately permeated into it.
Numerous strange symbols and a lot of strange rays of light were unceasingly moving about within the Bewitching God Painting at a rapid pace.
"What is this?" Qin Yu was confused.
Qin Yu looked at Wu Lan and asked. "Mister Wu Lan, this Bewitching God Painting is known as the number one treasure in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, why is it that I cannot find how it is precious?"
Wu Lan shook his head and smiled. He said. "Had you not discovered the strangeness of the Bewitching God Painting that is different from ordinary Divine Artifacts?"
"It's certainly strange. I even drip my blood on it and became its master but was still unable to find what's so precious about it." Qin Yu shook his head and lightly smiled.
Wu Lan sighed and said. "Forget about it, it's better for me to just tell you about it. It was not without reasons that this Bewitching God Painting is known as the number one treasure of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. Before then, let me ask you about a thing first. Where did the Divine Weapons of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm come from?"
Qin Yu was startled.
That's right, only people from the Divine Realm could refine a Divine Weapon. How could there be Divine Artifacts in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm? Could it be that there's people from the Divine Realm that have came to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm and they specially created Divine Artifacts to gift to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm's people?
Wu Lan saw Qin Yu's expression, he laughed and said. "Let me tell you, several tens of millions of years ago, there are no Divine Artifacts in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm."
"Oh?" Qin Yu's eyes shined. "Mister Wu Lan, are you stating that everything changed some tens of millions of years ago?"
Wu Lan nodded and said. "That's right. Several tens of millions of years ago, an extremely mysterious temple descended from the Divine Realm to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. This temple contained within it numerous Divine Artifacts. And the Divine Artifacts of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm came precisely from there."
"Divine Realm, temple?" Qin Yu was listening attentively.
"That's right, this temple is called the 'Bewitching God Temple.'"
"Bewitching God Temple?" Qin Yu was startled, The name Bewitching God Temple was something that he had heard others saying numerous times. So, this Bewitching God Temple was actually such an extraordinary place. It was the source of all the Divine Artifacts of the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.
Wu Lan sighed and said. "The Bewitching God Temple was originally a temple of an extremely dreadful person from the Divine Realm. Afterwards, for unknown reasons, the master of that Bewitching God Temple made the temple arrive in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm."
"Qin Yu, you ought to know… " Wu Lan's face was filled with a disappointed and frustrated expression. "It was precisely because of the Bewitching God Temple that I came to here."
Qin Yu nodded.
Wu Lan had once told me that he was a Demonic Beast from the Divine Realm. As for him having arrived in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm because of the Bewitching God Temple, it was something that Qin Yu had naturally thought about… When the Bewitching God Temple was descended to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, Wu Lan was likely within the Bewitching God Temple.
As a result, Wu Lan was sent to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm along with the Bewitching God Temple.
"When the Bewitching God Temple descended to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, I was unable to exit it and had been trapped at a certain area of the Bewitching God Temple… Like that, a certain day, someone entered the Bewitching God Temple and received my attack."
Wu Lan had a light smile on his face. "After that man was attacked by me, he immediately ran to the outside of the barrier. I, on the other hand, was unable to exit the range of that barrier… then that man threatened me and said that if I were to enter the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas, he'll take me away from the Bewitching God Temple."
"It's Immortal Emperor Ni Yang." Qin Yu was able to guess what that man was.
Wu Lan nodded. "Although I came from the Divine Realm, but there were numerous Divine Barriers in the Bewitching God Temple. I had absolutely no way to deal with them. However, that Ni Yang was able to pass through them."
"Why?" Qin Yu asked.
"Because of the Bewitching God Painting." Wu Lan gasped. "That owner of the Bewitching God Temple was also an extraordinary big shot in the Divine Realm. The barriers within his temple, there likely aren't many people from the Divine Realm that can break through them. Thus, they could only travel about the routes that he determined."
"Those routes can only be discovered with the Bewitching God Painting." Said Wu Lan solemnly.
"Something's amiss." Qin Yu said in confusion. "There are no routes at all in this Bewitching God Painting, only strange symbols and unusual lights. There's no routes at all."
Wu Lan smiled and said. "The routes within the Bewitching God Temple are constantly changing. If one does not possess the Bewitching God Painting, then one could only dangerously charge forth. However, they would certainly die."
Qin Yu was shocked.
That Bewitching God Temple's routes are actually constantly changing. Seems like even if one possessed a map of the routes, it'll also be useless.
"As long as one entered the Bewitching God Temple with the Bewitching God Painting, the Bewitching God Painting would naturally illustrate the routes. Likewise… the routes and channels that appeared in the Bewitching God Painting are also constantly changing." Wu Lan smiled as he looked at Qin Yu. "Qin Yu, do you understand the preciousness of the Bewitching God Painting now?"
"A map could be considered as the number one treasure of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm?" Said Qin Yu to himself within his heart.
Seeing Qin Yu's expression, Wu Lan didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Qin Yu, did you know how many Emperor level experts in the past tens of millions of years have charge into the Bewitching God Temple in hopes of obtaining Divine Artifacts and lost their lives? Even Emperor Yu, Mystic Emperor and them, their Divine Artifacts were also only obtained from the outer regions of the Bewitching God Temple through their lucks."
"There's already such great Divine Artifacts in the outer regions?" Qin Yu had seen Emperor Yu and Mystic Emperor's Divine Weapons. When they combined, they turned into a High Quality Divine Weapon.
Wu Lan shook his head and said. "All of the Divine Artifacts in the outer regions were low level ones, only rarely would there be some good ones. The true treasures are located in the inner regions."
"Back then, when Immortal Emperor Ni Yang first explored the Bewitching God Temple, he was extremely lucky and obtained the Bewitching God Painting. Using the Bewitching God Painting, he managed to travel about the exterior regions safely and obtained the Divine Sword Sky Piercer, Divine Armor Black Frozen Snow… and so on. A total of twelve Divine Artifacts." Said Wu Lan indifferently.
Qin Yu was instead startled.
Twelve? That many.
"Qin Yu, the Immortal Emperor Ni Yang from back then was still very weak. Even with the Bewitching God Painting showing him the safest routes, he was still only able to travel about the outer regions. However, he still managed to obtain twelve Divine Artifacts of which he gifted a couple of them to his friends and left a couple in the Ni Yang's Realm. At that time you, Man Qian, and Zong Jue all received your respective Divine Artifacts. Didn't you? Furthermore… even now, there's still Divine Artifacts within the Ni Yang's Realm. Furthermore, it's inside the Ninth Heaven of the Ni Yang's Realm."
Qin Yu was greatly surprised.
The Divine Artifacts from the Ni Yang's Realm's Ninth Heaven, the Seventh, Eighth and Ninth layer's Divine Artifacts were all taken by Qin Yu, Man Qian and Zong Jue. Yet surprisingly there's actually still Divine Artifacts in the Ninth Heaven.
"When Ni Yang first entered the Bewitching God Temple, he used those Divine Artifacts he obtained from there to create a great reputation for himself. His power also increased. It's just that all of the other experts were skeptical of how Ni Yang managed to obtain so many Divine Artifacts." Wu Lan started to laugh. "Qin Yu, you ought to know that Emperor Yu, Mystic Emperor and others had spent countless amount of mental and physical efforts and entered the Bewitching God Temple countless times before they obtained several Divine Artifacts. Ni Yang, on the other hand, merely entered the Bewitching God Temple once and obtained twelve Divine Artifacts. Furthermore, the Ni Yang from that time was also very weak. There was one who wasn't skeptical about it."
Qin Yu nodded. If he was Emperor Yu and them, he too would be skeptical.
"Ultimately, the secret about the Bewitching God Painting was leaked. This all had to be blamed on Ni Yang trusting his trusted aide. Afterwards… Ni Yang charge into the Bewitching God Temple for the second time. This time around, he possessed the strength of a level eight Immortal Emperor and also had the Bewitching God Painting showing him the routes; he was prepared to charge into the inner regions of the Bewitching God Temple."
Wu Lan lightly smiled and said. "However this time, he died. When he cast off Emperor Yu, Mystic Emperor and the rest, right when he entered the inner regions of the Bewitching God Temple, he stepped on a Divine Realm's poisonous bug."
"Qin Yu, you ought to know about the preciousness of the Bewitching God Painting. With it… then, in the Bewitching God Temple, you can pick up Divine Artifacts like picking up trash. Also, when your power is stronger, you can also enter the inner regions of the Bewitching God Temple through using the Bewitching God Painting. However, if one doesn't have the Bewitching God Painting… even if they were people from the Divine Realm, it would still be impossible for them to enter the inner regions. The inner regions are the private area of the Bewitching God Temple's master."
Hearing all that Wu Lan had said, Qin Yu finally understood the importance of the Bewitching God Temple.
With it, then one could easily obtain Divine Artifacts in the outer regions of the Bewitching God Temple. The title of the number one treasure in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm was certainly without doubt.
