Upon hearing Huang Jing's question, Qin Yu instantly woke back up to reality.
Currently, Qin Yu still couldn't allow others to know about the relationship between him and Li'er. His current strength was too weak! Qin Yu immediately asked instead. "Chase after Jiang Li? Miss Huang Jing, why would you say such a thing? Could it be that there are a lot of people chasing after Jiang Li?"
"Oh?" Huang Jing looked to Qin Yu with suspicion.
Qin Yu however had a lingering fear in his heart. Earlier when Huang Jing asked him that question, had he not woken back up to reality, then perhaps he would've said what he shouldn't have.
"Miss Huang Jing, what are you thinking?" Said Qin Yu with a smile on his face. In merely a short moment, Qin Yu's frame of mind had grown completely undisturbed.
Huang Jing glanced at Qin Yu a couple times. She then said. "There are naturally a lot of people chasing after little sister Jiang Li. This involves a great secret. For the time being, I believe it's best for you to not know about this matter."
"Involved a great secret? What sort of secret is this mysterious?" Said Qin Yu with a smile on his face.
Huang Jing shook her head and didn't say anything. Actually, this secret couldn't be considered to be a great secret. After all, all the upper echelons of the Divine Realm knew about this secret. Otherwise, there wouldn't have been that many Heavenly Deities chasing after Jiang Li. However, Huang Jing didn't want to tell Qin Yu about this secret!
"Actually, little sister Jiang Li is also quite pitiful." Said Huang Jing with a sigh.
Qin Yu's heart shivered. What's wrong with Li'er? Why is she pitiful? However, Qin Yu was still feigning a curious expression. "Jiang Li is pitiful? How is she pitiful?"
Huang Jing shook her head and said with a sigh. "Jiang Li is from the utmost north region's Jiang Clan. Thus, her status could also be considered as being very high. Logically, she should be able to live her life carefreely and without worries. After all, things like forced marriage are extremely seldom nowadays. Likewise, there are rarely any people from the Divine Realm that would like someone to a frantic level. However, ever since that Heaven Startling Battle, little sister Jiang Li's situation has turned for the worse."
"The number of people chasing after her is immense. Furthermore, many of the people among them possess extremely high status. For there to be that many people chasing after her… does it illustrate her charm? It would've been fine had that been the case. The most lamentable thing was, this large group of people that wants little sister Jiang Li, not a single one of them likes her for who she is." Huang Jing sighed.
A group of people that doesn't like her yet chases after her.
This was truly lamentable..
Qin Yu felt a burst of fury rising from the bottom of his heart. He tried his best to maintain his tranquil expression. "Miss Huang Jing, why are those people chasing after Jiang Li if they do not like her?"
"It's all because they want to have the opportunity to become a Godking! Humph, each and every one of those people wants to become a new Godking. Little sister Jiang Li is truly pitiful. If she were to marry any one of them… fortunately she has the protection of senior Jiang Lan. Otherwise, little sister Jiang Li would've already been forced to marry someone." Huang Jing sighed.
Qin Yu's heart shivered.
Forced to marry someone? Those four words have caused Qin Yu's heart to tighten. Although he knew that this had yet to happen, just thinking about it caused Qin Yu to feel that his heart was tightening.
Qin Yu didn't know what to do if Li'er were to truly become someone's wife!
"Uncle Lan, Li'er…"
Qin Yu's clenched down on his teeth tightly. At this moment, his resolution seemed to be carving his soul. "Li'er, bear for it a bit longer. Once I have enough strength, I will definitely walk into the Floating Snow City straightforwardly and out in the open."
At this moment, Qin Yu needed to suffer patiently but firmly resolve himself and continue to put in effort into his training.
He shall wait till the future when he achieves accomplishments before emerging and showing his magnificence.
"Miss Huang Jing, I, Qin Yu, cannot thank you enough for the things you have told me today." Qin Yu bowed to once again express his gratitude. Huang Jing immediately smiled so hard that her eyes squinted. "It's nothing much. In the future, once you've come to the Mount Dazzling Gold, these things would be things that you'd naturally come to know."
Huang Jing turned around and looked at the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu who stood far away.
"This Tan Jiu says that he has something that he wants to chat with you about. You can go ahead and chat with him now." Said Huang Jing with a smile on her face. At the same time, she removed the spatial domain in the surroundings.
With short scarlet hair like steel needles sticking out; with a pair of gloomy and baleful eyes underneath a pair of scarlet sword brows; with the appearance of a slender youngster was the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu. With a cold expression, he stood on the open land. The mountain wind of the ravine whiz past him. Although they crashed at his body, Tan Jiu's appearance did not change in the slightest.
"This Qin Yu, I hope that he won't make our conflict a life and death crisis!" Tan Jiu had a matter that bothered him in his heart.
Qin Yu's identity!
From Tan Jiu's point of view, Qin Yu possessed a High Level Heavenly Divine Artifact, knew of the 'so close yet worlds apart' remarkable ability and even mentioned that he possessed a master. Today, Tan Jiu tried to kill Qin Yu. However, at the final moment, his plan was destroyed by Huang Jing.
And now, Tan Jiu had begun to worry about what might happen if Qin Yu were to tell this matter of him trying to kill Qin Yu to his mysterious master behind him and have his master come and kill him. If such a thing were to happen, what could Tan Jiu possibly do?
Tan Jiu knew that Qin Yu had most definitely sensed the killing intent that he had in the Six Directions Extermination Array.
Tan Jiu believed that Qin Yu would definitely retaliate against him.
Since Qin Yu would come for retaliation, he must extinguish the thought of revenge before it occurs!
Kill Qin Yu?
A scene of Huang Jing effortlessly breaking his strongest offensive formation array appeared in Tan Jiu's mind. He immediately gave up the idea of killing Qin Yu. With Huang Jing here, it was impossible for him to kill Qin Yu.
"There's only a single way out!" Tan Jiu thought in his heart.
"Tan Jiu, don't you have something to talk about with Qin Yu?" Suddenly a voice sounded from the side. Tan Jiu was slightly startled. He proceeded to look to the side. Huang Jing who was still far away from him earlier, was actually beside him right now.
Tan Jiu immediately slightly bowed and said. "Lady Huang Jing. The matter that which I plan to chat with him about is extremely short. Please wait a moment."
After he finished saying that, Tan Jiu turned into a blur and arrived beside Qin Yu after a short moment.
"Tan Jiu, go ahead and tell me what you wanted to say." Qin Yu looked to the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu with a slight smile on his face.
Qin Yu was also pretty curious of this Tan Jiu. A Nine-headed Black Dragon actually took the appearance of a youngster after taking a human form.
Space ripple spreaded out from the space surrounding the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu. It covered an area a hundred meters surrounding him. Spatial Domain! Qin Yu did not try to escape the Spatial Domain at all. That was because Qin Yu believe that as Tan Jiu had experienced his 'teleportation' ability, he would definitely not do something stupid.
"Qin Yu, I merely wanted to apologize to you." Tan Jiu smiled as he bowed slightly.
Qin Yu looked to Tan Jiu with a confused expression on his face. Did this Tan Jiu have some sort of mental issue? Could he be trying to apologize for trying to kill me earlier? Could such a matter be settled with merely an apology?
"The three subordinates of mine, you've killed Xiong Hei and seriously injured the other two. You've also destroyed a Low Level Heavenly Divine Artifact. I, as the boss of the Black Dragon Pool, have no choice but to handle you. If I were to let you go, how then would I be able to rule over my subordinates?"
Tan Jiu raised his pair of scarlet brows and then continued. "If I can kill you yet don't kill you, then all my subordinates would refuse to obey me. Later on, when I used the Six Directions Extermination Array to attack you, it was easily broken apart by Lady Huang Jing. Through that, the close to a million Deities of my Black Dragon Pool also understand that it is not that I do not wish to avenge my subordinate but rather that I do not have the ability to avenge him. Thus, they also cannot blame me for it."
Tan Jiu looked to Qin Yu. "Qin Yu, I believe you understand the intention behind my words."
Qin Yu sneered in his heart. 'Aren't you merely trying to make me think that the reason why you, Tan Jiu, wanted to kill me was because you were forced into the situation and that you do not have the intention to kill me from the bottom of your heart?'
"Tan Jiu, I can understand your difficulties. As a boss, what you have done is completely understandable." Said Qin Yu with an extremely 'understanding' tone.
"Qin Yu, for you to be able to understand my reasoning, I feel that my heart is a lot more relaxed." Tan Jiu started laughing. Merely, he was still suspicious from the bottom of his heart. He did not believe that Qin Yu would let him off so easily.
Qin Yu continued. "Tan Jiu, if there isn't anything, I'll be taking my leave first."
"Qin Yu, I am not someone who can keep my mouth quiet. Earlier, when I learnt that you possessed the 'so close yet worlds apart' remarkable ability, I was unable to keep my mouth quiet and told about this information to my trusted aide." Tan Jiu said continuously. "I am truly sorry about that. However Qin Yu, you can rest assured. This trusted aide of mine possesses a much tighter mouth than mine. As long as I am around, he would definitely not spread this information out."
"Of course I believe in brother Tan Jiu." Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
However, Qin Yu was actually cursing in rage in his heart. "Humph, isn't this Tan Jiu threatening me saying that if I were to kill him, then his trusted aide would spread the information about my 'so close yet worlds apart' remarkable ability out?"
Tan Jiu said with gasp of admiration to Qin Yu. "However Qin Yu, that 'so close yet worlds apart' ability of yours is truly extraordinary. If all of the Heavenly Deities of the Divine Realm were to find out about it, then who knows how many of those ambitious Heavenly Deities would brave death to try to take the ability from you. There are very many Heavenly Deities in the Divine Realm that dare to take risks for their goals."
Qin Yu grew even more enraged in his heart.
Tan Jiu's intention was extremely clear. If he were to die, then the information regarding the 'so close yet worlds apart' ability would be spread out. This would in turn lead to a large number of ambitious Heavenly Deities to come for Qin Yu.
"Although they might be willing to take risks, since it's a risk, they should definitely be prepared for the possibility of death. Killing me is not that easy of a task." Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
"That's right, this is also what I was thinking too." Tan Jiu said with a nod.
"Ha, Black Dragon, I've heard that even your Black Dragon Palace was burned down by someone!" A loud and brash roar was heard. Like the rumbling thunders, this loud roar resonated through the heaven and earth. A super muscular bearded robust man with height even more terrifying than Xiong Hei was flying downward from the sky above the ravine.
"Big brother, it's not merely a single Black Dragon Palace, even the other three palaces were burned to nothingness." Another robust bearded man with a similar size to the first one was also flying down from the sky above the ravine.
"I've heard that it's a Heavenly Deity that was proficient in using formation arrays that did all this. Haha, I truly want to meet him, truly want to meet him." Another robust man flew down from the sky above the ravine.
These three robust men with muscles like stone carvings, with bodies larger than even Xiong Hei's, with auras ten times more domineering than Xiong Hei's appeared to be almost exactly the same.
"What overbearing auras!" Qin Yu looked to the three men. "These three robust men, I reckon they're all Mid Level Heavenly Deities!"
There was a strange matter regarding these three robust men — all three of them possessed purple eyes!
Upon seeing these three people, Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu frowned. At the same time, he instantly created three clones from his body. All three of these Black Dragons that were created held a black stick in their hands
