Nine Amplifications Sect. In an elegant and isolated palace. This palace was a residence that only the Mystic Emperor could live in.
Ever since the Qin Clan moved to the Blazing Sun Galaxy's Virtue Residence Star, the Mystic Emperor Xuan Xi spent the majority of her time living in the Nine Amplifications Sect. This had caused the Nine Amplifications Sect's Sect Master to become extremely cautious and solemn every single day.
The Nine Amplifications Sect's Sect Master walked into the palace respectfully.
"Your Majesty, Qin Yu has returned." Said the Nine Amplification Sect's Sect Master respectfully as he bowed. He didn't dare to raise his head to look at Xuan Xi at all.
Xuan Xi wore a moon-white colored gown. Her long hair trailed over her shoulders all the way down to her buttocks.
"He's finally returned after leaving for over a dozen years?" Xuan Xi had a shallow smile on her face. "Good, you can return."
"Yes, Your Majesty." The Nine Amplifications Sect's Sect Master withdrew while bowing.
Only after he left the palace did the Nine Amplifications Sect's Sect Master heave a sigh of relief. He thought to himself. "Back then, when Emperor Yu died, not only did Her Majesty not go and avenge him, she instead treated the Qin Clan so well. And now, she is so concerned about the movement of the Qin Clan. What exactly is she planning?"
Even the trusted aide of the Mystic Emperor, the Nine Amplifications Sect's Sect Master, does not know what the Mystic Emperor is planning to do.
The Mystic Emperor had made a lot of people become part of the Qin Clan. She even had one of her disciples become the wife of Feng Yuzi. Not long ago, another female subordinate of hers became the wife of the Qin Clan's genius, Qin Nan. And Qin Nan was Qin Feng's grandson.
And because of that, the Mystic Emperor managed to obtain a lot of the secret information about the Qin Clan. For example, Qin Yu had said that he'd be likely going to undergo the Divine Tribulation in several hundred years. (The Qin Yu from back then didn't know when he was going to undergo the Divine Tribulation. He merely managed to guess the timing based on the Cyan Emperor's Divine Tribulation.)
Inside the palace.
The Mystic Emperor was sitting in front of the dressing table. Her gaze was misty.
"Brother Feng Yu, did you know? That Qin Yu was said to be going to undergo his Divine Tribulation in several hundred years… your vengeance, I do not have to wait too long anymore. In several hundred years, I'll be able to attain your revenge."
The Mystic Emperor's voice was extremely soft and gentle. "Brother Feng Yu, after all these years, I have also become the Immortal Realm's Mystic Emperor. However, my happiest days were still the time when you were Emperor Yu and I, Mystic Emperor, and fighting against each other. Unfortunately, you've died…."
The Mystic Emperor was someone with ambition and the desire for power. She loved being high above, controlling others, telling others what to do.
"Divine Realm, it is an even vaster battlefield. If you want to become a big shot there, it is much more difficult than becoming a big shot in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. And, before I ascend to the Divine Realm, I will definitely avenge you."
The Mystic Emperor stood up. She walked to the palace's gate. She raised her head up and looked to the boundless space.
"Qin Yu, it was your subordinate that killed Brother Feng Yu. This time around, I must let you know what being too late for regrets means, what it means to die deranged." A ruthless light shined through the Xuan Xi's eyes. "Qin Yu, I shall let you despair and die in a state of absolute despair!"
And at this moment, the temperature in the surrounding of the palace started to suddenly and violently drop.
Inside the Qin Palace. Within a courtyard manor. Only Qin Yu, Qin De and Qin Feng were present.
Originally, Qin Yu had said that he'd be leaving for only several years. However, he had instead been gone for over a dozen years. Qin Yu also didn't expect for the Grandmist Spiritual Treasures to be so hard to refine. It was also only through the help of his Stellar Space's flour paste energy that he managed to only spend a bit over a dozen years refining it.
The father and sons were chatting.
"What? You only have around ninety years before your Divine Tribulation comes?" Qin De and Qin Feng heard Qin Yu's words and was unable to refrain their shock. The date of Qin Yu's Divine Tribulation was truly too soon.
Qin Yu nodded and said. "That's right. There is nothing I can do about my Divine Tribulation coming so soon."
"Royal Father, big brother, it will be very difficult for the two of you to become level nine Immortal Emperors and then successfully pass the Divine Tribulation. Even if you manage to succeed, it would still take a very very long time." Qin Yu felt a bit pained in his heart.
Just by looking at how many Emperor level experts there were in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, one could tell how hard it was to become a level nine Immortal Emperor.
In the entire Qin Clan, other than Qin Yu, it was extremely hard for them to obtain another level nine Immortal Emperor.
"Yu'er, that is our blessing." Qin De patted Qin Yu's shoulder and said in a comforting tone. "Do not feel sad for us. The Divine Realm is definitely even more dangerous than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. At the very least, in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, we are still able to live our lives peacefully without any dangers."
Qin Feng said vigorously. "Qin Yu, in the boundless Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, the population number is in the billions. Perhaps, for you, the arena is too small. However, for us, it is already large enough."
Qin Yu quickly left behind his feeling of pain.
To have his family members live in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, that too is a sort of blessing and happiness.
Divine Realm… Qin Yu was unable to even guarantee his own safety there, how would he be able to safeguard his family?
However, once he ascends… how many years later would he be able to meet his family again?
A hundred thousand years? A million years? A hundred million years?
Even Qin Yu himself had no certainty on the amount of time it'll take.
Qin Yu clenched his fists. His brows started to crease. With a flip of his hand, he took out a scroll-like item. "Royal Father, big brother, this item is called the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas."
Qin De and Qin Feng have heard about the renowned Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas before. However, they were confused as to why Qin Yu took it out.
With an intention of Qin Yu's mind, Ye Qu, Wu Lan and Ao Wuxu appeared in the courtyard manor.
"Qin Yu, you…" The three of them, including the cold and detached Ao Wuxu all looked to Qin Yu with an astonished expression.
Qin Yu lightly smiled and said. "Don't doubt it. That's right, I have already removed the soul bindings on you three. From today on, all three of you shall have your liberty back. Wherever you want to go, no one will try and stop you."
Ye Qu, Wu Lan and Ao Wuxu all stared at Qin Yu.
"Royal Father, you shall take charge of the Qingyu Immortal Mansion. As for that Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas, big brother shall be in charge of that. Big brother, bind the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas. From today on, you shall be the new master of the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas. All of the Spiritual Beasts within it shall be under your control." Qin Yu handed over the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas to his big brother.
Qin Feng looked to the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas before him. He then looked to Qin Yu. He was momentarily stunned.
Qin De was instead the first one to wake back up. He hurriedly said. "Yu'er, this Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas is a precious item. Why is it that you don't want it?"
"I don't need it anymore. The Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas only possesses three different spaces for Spiritual Beasts. The highest among them is merely Emperor level. It would amount to no use in the Divine Realm. However, in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, it is extremely useful." Explained Qin Yu.
Qin Yu had also originally considered the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas to be important. However, he later came to find out from Uncle Fu that… the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas, in the Divine Realm, was merely a type of amusement Divine Artifact. Otherwise, Immortal Emperor Ni Yang from back then would also not be able to obtain it so easily.
The Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas had a total of three layers of spaces. It was able to absorb three different levels of Demon Beasts. However, the strongest Demon Beast that it could place within it was merely a level nine Demon Emperor.
In the Divine Realm, a level nine Demon Emperor would be merely a house pet's level.
This Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas, it was merely a cage to house pets and animals. Of course, those Spiritual Beasts that are captured, as long as their master do not remove the soul binding, even if they reach the Heavenly Deity stage, they would still be controlled.
However, to imprison a Demon Emperor level Demon Beast and then cultivate it to the Heavenly Deity level, so that one could use it later on, was much harder than hiring ten Heavenly Deities.
Thus, the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas was something that was merely relatively powerful in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.
"Qin Yu, I do not have much interest for the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. Allow me to return to the Jiang Lan's Realm to continue training. When you reach the Divine Realm, you can just casually bring me with you into the Divine Realm." Said Wu Lan with a smile.
Ever since seeing the 'Jiang Lan's Realm,' Wu Lan has never thought of not going back to the Divine Realm. That was because Wu Lan knew how important it was to possess a powerful backer in the Divine Realm.
"I also do not have any interest for the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm." Ye Qu's loud voice sounded. Ao Wuxu looked at Qin Yu coldly. His intention was obvious — he was also not interested toward the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.
Qin Yu instead shook his head and said. "Ye Qu, Ao Wuxu, I will be undergoing my Divine Tribulation in ninety years. Although the two of you are level nine Demon Emperors, your Divine Tribulation should be much later than mine."
Both Ye Qu and Ao Wuxu were stunned.
Usually, when reaching level nine Demon Emperor, one would require several tens of thousand or more years till the Divine Tribulation comes.
"So soon?" Said Ao Wuxu with a frown.
"That's right, it's very short. That's why the two of you cannot ascend to the Divine Realm together with me. If the two of you think that the outside world was boring, then you can for the time being live in the Qin Palace. If you're bored, you can also accompany Hei Tong, Guo Fan and them." Said Qin Yu with a smile.
Ye Qu and Ao Wuxu nodded. No matter how quickly they trained, it would still be impossible for them to undergo the Divine Tribulation before Qin Yu.
Qin Yu and his two brothers taking on the Divine Tribulation together was already a bit dangerous. If Ye Qu and Ao Wuxu also wanted to take on the Divine Tribulation with Qin Yu and his brothers, then, with five people undergoing the Divine Tribulation at the same time, even Qin Yu would not have a single trace of certainty that they'll succeed. Therefore, Ao Wuxu and Ye Qu did not suggest that.
"Big brother, Royal Father, with the Qingyu Immortal Mansion and the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas at your hands, my mind is now at ease." Qin Yu smiled as he looked to his Royal Father and big brother.
Qin De and Qin Feng glanced at each other. The two of them were both emotionally moved.
"Little Yu, thank you." Said Qin Feng. Seeing the Qin Yu before him, he recalled the seven or eight year old little child from back then. That little child that soaked in the hot spring together with him. 'Is this my third brother?' Sometimes when Qin Feng thought about this, he felt as if he were dreaming.
Qin Yu waved his sleeve.
A large number of 'people' appeared in the courtyard. These 'people' all possessed very strange appearances. Some of them, although they possessed the form of humans, instead had a large tail. Some of them looked like a hairy ball. However, the vast majority of them still had the appearance of people.
"Your Lordship." Said the eighty plus people simultaneously as they bowed.
These people were extremely grateful toward Qin Yu. That was because Qin Yu freed them from the Bewitching God Temple. That's right, they are the eighty plus house pets of the Bewitching God Temple.
Qin Yu nodded. "The vast majority of you are all Emperor level. Three of you are King level. You all came from different cosmic spaces. And from today on, I wish that you all promise me one thing."
"Please speak, Your Lordship." Said those eighty plus people simultaneously.
"Before you ascend to the Divine Realm, you shall all be considered Consecrated of my Qin Clan. You are to protect my Qin Clan. However, because I am unknown about your temperaments, I will have you all directly enter into the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas. I will make my big brother swear to release your soul bindings after you pass your Divine Tribulations." Said Qin Yu indifferently.
As Qin Yu was speaking, he was emitting a mighty aura.
No matter what, Qin Yu did not wished to gamble with his clan's lifeline. Thus, having these eighty plus people enter into the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas was the safest method.
These eighty plus people were unable to help from feeling a bit hesitant. They looked at Qin Feng.
"I, Qin Feng, swear that all the Spiritual Beasts of the Ten Thousand Beasts Atlas, once any of them manage to pass the Divine Tribulation, will immediately have their soul bindings removed. If I were to go against this oath of mine, then I shall be struck by the Divine Lightnings till my soul scatters." Said Qin Feng straightforwardly.
Hearing Qin Feng's oath, those eighty plus people immediately loosened up. Since there was nothing for them to do before they ascend to the Divine Realm anyways, so what if they needed to protect the Qin Clan? After all, it was Qin Yu who gave them back their freedom.
Once they recalled the cages that they were in, where they were unable to leave that cage at all, they started to feel a burst of uneasiness.
Having finished all the arrangements, Qin Yu felt a lot more at ease.
These eighty plus people, each and every one of them were extremely special in the cosmic space that they came from. Otherwise, they would not have been taken as pets by Chehou Yuan. These eighty plus people, each and every one of them possessed miraculous abilities. Some of them were even more abnormal and powerful than Super Divine Beasts.
For example Wu Lan. Back then, Wu Lan was also one of them.
Just like this, Qin Yu ended up passing his tranquil days in the Qin Palace. Because of the fact that there weren't many things for him to take care of in the Dark Star Realm, Qin Yu merely sent a transmission to them saying that he would have to train. Thus, no one came to bother him.
Days like this lasted for fifty entire years. This time around, the Qin Clan held a feast. Of course, they also invited some people from the outside. The Qin Clan was a location that only the people of the Qin Clan were allowed to enter. Usually, when they held banquets, it would be held on a palace on the waist of the mountain.
At this moment, a large number of people were gathered in this palace. An overwhelming majority of the Qin clansmen were present. Furthermore, even the Mystic Emperor had come. That was because the Mystic Emperor was Feng Yuzi's wife's master.
The main hall was extremely lively. A large number of people were gathered here. Qin Yu, Qin Feng, Hei Yu and his family, Qin De, Feng Yuzi and the rest of the people were all present. Before the banquet even started, the large number of people gathered here had already started chatting with each other.
"Little Yu." Feng Yuzi and a red clothed beautiful woman walked in.
"Uncle Feng, Aunt Feng." Qin Yu lightly smiled.
Regarding Feng Yuzi, Qin Yu had a slight headache. That was because he suspected that the Mystic Emperor had some sort of plot. Thus, Qin Yu was suspicious of the Mystic Emperor's disciple, Uncle Feng's wife, Lian Yu.
"Brother Qin Yu, I've heard that you'll be undergoing your Divine Tribulation in about forty years?" A gentle and soft voice sounded. With a smile on her face, the Mystic Emperor Xuan Xi walked over.
Seeing Xuan Xi, Qin Yu was slightly startled.
There are not many people in the Qin Clan that knew that he would be ascending in about forty years. How did this Mystic Emperor know about it? Could it be from… Uncle Feng's wife?
Qin Yu immediately smiled and nodded. "Xuan Xi, do you by any chance know when your Divine Tribulation would come?"
"Oh, mine's still going to take a while." Said Xuan Xi while smiling.
"Big brother." Hou Fei's voice sounded from behind. Qin Yu smiled. "Xuan Xi, go and chat with the others first. I must take my leave." Qin Yu turned around and immediately proceeded toward Hou Fei.
Seeing Qin Yu's back view, Xuan Xi had a slight smile on her face. She was thinking. 'Forty years, you are still able to live for forty more years. Your Qin Clan will only be able to survive for another forty years."
