Volume 15 – Splitting the Heaven and Earth Apart - Chapter 37 – Wretched

A Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus had nine flower petals.
As for the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus, it was also called the Seven Petaled Magnificent Lotus. Although the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus was larger than the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus only had a lotus core on top of the lotus seed head. As for the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, although its size was small, it had three sparkling and translucent lotus seeds on top of its lotus seed head!
The three sparkling and translucent lotus seeds were all milky white in colour and emitting a white light.
At the core of the lotus seed head of the nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, that is, the center region of the location of the three lotus seeds, was an ice-cube-like sparkling and translucent black lotus core. This black lotus core radiated a black light and an ice-cold aura.
"No wonder two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses grew. So it was actually the aura radiated by the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus that produced the two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses. However, this Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is truly tyrannic. It directly absorbed the essence of the two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses to ripen itself."
Qin Yu finally understood the reason why two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses grew at the same place.
At the same time, the information regarding the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus written in the golden scroll appeared in Qin Yu's mind. "Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is a higher class material than the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus. It is considered a legendary treasure. In the history of the Divine Realm, only a single Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus has been discovered before. The most precious part of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is its lotus core. The lotus core of a Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is nurtured through absorbing Grandmist Spiritual Energy. Upon refining the lotus core, it could allow one to create a Magnificent Lotus Clone! Its three lotus seeds are milky white in colour. Each of the lotus seeds possess the ability to revive one from the dead upon eating it. If one were to refine them, then their effect would be even greater…. The nine lotus petals are all precious medicinal herbs. Even its and stem is a treasure. The root is as precious as a single lotus seed."
The Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, although it was a lotus, it could also be considered to be a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
"Once one refines the lotus core, one can actually create a Magnificent Lotus Clone!" Qin Yu became excited. In the golden scroll that was left behind in the Bewitching God Temple, there contained detailed information regarding all parts of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. Furthermore, it was also extremely detailed in how to create a Magnificent Lotus Clone and what uses it possessed.
The more detailed it was, the more excited Qin Yu became.
The preciousness of a Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was greater than even ordinary second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasures!
Even Qin Yu who possessed the Bewitching God Temple wanted to obtain the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus badly. Qin Yu didn't really care much about the efficiency of the three lotus seeds, nine lotus petals and the stem; what Qin Yu wanted was that black lotus core.
"The information regarding the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is something that only the upper echelons of the Divine Realm know about. It is likely that Tan Jiu and Liu Yuxi still don't know about the true preciousness of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus!" Qin Yu's attention was cast toward Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu.
Just like what Qin Yu had anticipated, the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus had only appeared once in the entire history of the Divine Realm. How could two mere Heavenly Deities of the Yuchi City know about the uses of a Nine petaled Magnificent Lotus? Even a lot of the High Level Heavenly Deities didn't know about it.
Liu Yuxi saw the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus and was shocked. "It actually absorbed the essence of two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses, it is definitely more precious than a Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus. Nine lotus petals? Could it… could it be the legendary Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus?"
During the time when Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu discovered this location, they also discovered two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses that were still growing.
At that time, neither Liu Yuxi nor Tan Jiu knew about the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses. They had instantly assumed that these lotus flowers were definitely treasures the moment they saw the Unitary Heavy Water. Thus, Liu Yuxi proceeded to investigate using his connections in the Yuchi City when he returned.
In the end, he managed to obtain detailed information regarding how precious the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus was. This caused Liu Yuxi to be overjoyed. In that detailed information that he had obtained, it also slightly mentioned about the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus at the end. It said that above the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus was the legendary Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. As for the usages of all the different sections of a Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, it did not contain any information regarding that.
Neither Tan Jiu nor Liu Yuxi knew about the usages of the different parts of a Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus.
However, they were certain about one thing… the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was definitely much more precious than the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus!
With two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses, Tan Jiu and Liu Yuxi was able to split them evenly among each other. However, with a single Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, how should they split it among themselves?
Liu Yuxi who was planning to discuss with Tan Jiu about how to distribute this Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus suddenly has a change in his expression. He was planning to dodge back but an over twenty thousand kilogram strike ruthlessly smashed onto Liu Yuxi's head.
Like a ball, Liu Yuxi was smashed flying. Ruthlessly, he smashed against the stone wall of the courtyard. Fissures instantly spread across the stone wall.
The strange thing was, Liu Yuxi's entire skin's surface was fluctuating like a ripple. That strike to his head surprisingly only managed to crack his head open. His blood flowed out.
With lightning speed, Liu Yuxi rushed out from the huge hole in the wall. On his hands appeared a pair of golden gloves.
Tan Jiu's scarlet sword brows were raised. He sneered. "Liu Yuxi, your defense is truly powerful. During the time when we were in the Devil Murder Realm, I possessed the strongest offense and you possessed the strongest defense. And now, against my Mid Level Heavenly Divine Artifact's attack, it actually only managed to wound you. Truly admirable, admirable."
"Tan Jiu, you actually dared to sneak attack me for that Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus!" Liu Yuxi's expression was extremely unsightly.
Although others might think that Liu Yuxi's injury wasn't much when looking at him, but Liu Yuxi himself was very certain that he was extremely lucky to survive Tan Jiu's sneak attack with all his strength.
The current Liu Yuxi merely had about sixty percent of his strength left.
A sparkle of red light flashed through the gloomy eyes underneath Tan Jiu's scarlet brows!
"Liu Yuxi, I suspect your soul has been damaged, no? How much strength do you have remaining? Fifty percent? Sixty percent? Haha… Liu Yuxi, seeing that the two of us ascended from the Devil Murder Realm together and have fought each other for so many years, I also have some affection for you. If you were to leave here directly, I shall spare your life." Said Tan Jiu generously.
Liu Yuxi's expression was extremely unsightly. His silver brows were furrowed into a line. He said in a low voice. "Tan Jiu, we have been enemies with each other since the time when we were both weak. The two of us have fought each other for billions of years now. We have ascended together and reached Heavenly Deity level at practically the same time. And now, the two of us are both Mid Level Heavenly Deities… To be honest, I have already considered you as an intimate friend of mine. I have even dreamed, dreamed of how interesting it would be if we were to become Godkings. However, I truly never have expected that for a mere Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, you actually went and sneak attacked me!"
"In all these years that we have been in the Divine Realm, the two of us have fought several times. During those times, I discovered that you never fought all out with me. That had led me to think that after all these years, you were thinking the same as me and have also considered me as an intimate friend. However now, it would appear that…" Liu Yuxi's voice contained traces of grief.
"Intimate friends?" Tan Jiu was startled. His expression also changed.
However, Tan Jiu started laughing coldly. "Haha… what sort of joke are you talking about? I, Tan Jiu, have an intimate friend? Humph humph, whoever it is that blocks my path shall be swept away. In the past, the reason why I have never gone all out with fighting you was because I am not certain that I can kill you and that I want a rival to allow me to improve even faster. Yet this time… the preciousness of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, I reckon it is at the very least as precious as a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. For it, of course I have to be fierce and ruthless against you."
"Are you going to flee or are you going to fight me for this treasure? You decide!" Said Tan Jiu coldly.
Liu Yuxi who possessed only sixty percent of his strength was still a threat to Tan Jiu. If Liu Yuxi was to fight with the intention of dying, then it was likely that Tan Jiu would only be able to kill him after sustaining serious injuries.
Liu Yuxi glanced at Tan Jiu twice. He slightly nodded and said. "Fine. This Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus is yours. Let me go."
Inside a room not far away from the courtyard was Qin Yu. Qin Yu was currently watching all that was unfolding.
After understanding the course of events, Qin Yu can't help but sigh. "This Liu Yuxi was likely thoroughly disappointed. He had originally thought that Tan Jiu was an intimate friend of his. However, who would've expected that Tan Jiu would actually ruthlessly attack him."
Soon after, Qin Yu calmed his mind.
"Currently, the Divine Spear Waning Snow has yet to absorb even a thousandth of the Dark and Yellow Energy. However, if I want to kill Tan Jiu, I can only use the Divine Spear Waning Snow." Qin Yu was prepared to attack.
Even though it had yet to even absorb a thousandth of the Dark and Yellow Energy, the Divine Spear Waning Snow's might had already been increased greatly. Qin Yu was able to sense it very clearly.
As Tan Jiu pressed on the mechanism button, the tunnel leading to the bottom of the Black Dragon Pool started to open.
Liu Yuxi directly proceeded toward the entrance of the tunnel.
The entrance of the tunnel was located right next to Tan Jiu. Right after Liu Yuxi walked to about three meters distance away from Tan Jiu, Liu Yuxi suddenly raised his fists and emitted a dazzling golden light.
At the same moment when Liu Yuxi attacked, Tan Jiu's nine sectioned whip also turned into a stick and was once again smashed toward Liu Yuxi.
Liu Yuxi's two golden fists smashed upon the nine sectioned whip simultaneously.
The two people's bodies were jolted. After that, they flew backwards simultaneously.
Liu Yuxi had a cold expression on his face. "Tan Jiu, you are ruthless indeed. You never planned to let me go. Instead, you were planning to sneak attack me again so that you can kill be even more easily. Isn't that right?!"
Having been seen through, Tan Jiu did not feel embarrassed in the slightest. Instead, he sneered and said. "Liu Yuxi, there is no need to bother spouting nonsense. Although I have launched a sneak attack on you, weren't you also trying to sneak attack me? All that intimate friend bullshit that you said earlier, I bet it was all just fake."
Liu Yuxi said coldly. "Before you launched that sneak attack, I truly had considered you to be an intimate friend. However, once you sneak attacked me, I already knew… even though we knew each other for over billions of years, you were still as vicious and merciless as before. Thus, I knew that… you would definitely not let me go this time around. I wanted to sneak attack you before you do me. However, it would appear that it didn't work."
Upon seeing this scene, Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock.
These two people are truly ruthless. That Tan Jiu said he was going to let Liu Yuxi go but it was actually so that he could sneak attack him again.
Liu Yuxi stopped bothering to talk anymore. He proceeded to charge toward Tan Jiu. As for Tan Jiu, he also charged forward with his nine sectioned whip. These two people were extremely knowledgeable of their opponent's strength. When they attacked each other, their speed was extremely fast.
"They both aren't using Spatial Domain and the courtyard was surprisingly not damaged much!"
Qin Yu's Spatial Energy was closely observing the astonishing power that the two of them were displaying at close combat fighting.
Everywhere the nine sectioned whip and the two fists passed, the space there would be completely distorted. Their Heavenly Divine Energies as well as their powers were completely condensed into their weapons. They were frantically attacking each other.
"Pow!" "Pow!" "Pow!" ….
From time to time, Liu Yuxi's body would be whipped by the strange nine sectioned staff. However, the skin on Liu Yuxi's body would occasionally fluctuate like a ripple. Through that, he easily blocked the attacks from Tan Jiu.
Truly an abnormal defense.
Several tens of after images appeared in the courtyard. It was like several tens of Tan Jiu's were fighting against several tens of Liu Yuxi's. In the instant of a lightning flash, the two of them had exchanged over a hundred hits.
"If they continued to fight like this, when will the battle end?" Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
However, right at that instant!
Qin Yu's expression suddenly changed. "Clones!"
That's right, Tan Jiu suddenly brought out two clones. Due to the fact that they were battling too fast and created that many after imagines, having two more clones was something that one cannot distinguish with one's naked eye.
Qin Yu managed to discover the clones and Liu Yuxi had also discovered the clones.
The two clones instantly rushed toward Liu Yuxi. Like madmen, they pressed onto Liu Yuxi from either sides.
As if several hundred Heavenly Lightning bolts sounded near one's ears, parts of the underground mansion started to collapse. Qin Yu had hid himself into the corner of the room. A pillar above him smashed down beside him. However, he did not pay attention to it at all. All his attention was on the battle in the courtyard.
"This Tan Jiu is truly ruthless. He actually self detonated two of his clones." Qin Yu was filled with shock.
The nine clones of Tan Jiu were all his true bodies. For him to give up two of his true bodies at once, he was truly determined.
"You're still alive?" Tan Jiu's cold and indifferent voice sounded.
In the middle of the courtyard, Liu Yuxi was kneeling on the ground on one knee. His body was covered with blood. He looked to Tan Jiu before him with an ice-cold gaze. "Tan Jiu, could it be that you think you're capable of killing me with merely two clones? Did you forgot that my strongest strength is my defense?!"
A mocking smile appeared on Tan Jiu's cold and indifferent face.
Although his defense was very powerful, but through the self detonated of two of Tan Jiu's clones, Liu Yuxi's injury had become even worse.
Liu Yuxi suddenly raised his head toward the sky and shouted. His head started to shine. Instantly, the space in the entire courtyard seemed to have frozen. Tan Jiu's expression also changed. "You…"
"Let's die together." Craziness flashed through Liu Yuxi's eyes.
Tan Jiu was very certain that at this moment, Liu Yuxi had ignited his Nascent Soul. The Nascent Soul was the materialistic existence of one's soul's energy. The amount of energy it contained was truly astonishing. When exploding the Nascent Soul's energy at once, one's Divine Awareness would instantly reach its strongest point and one's control of the 'Spatial Domain' would become even greater.
At the same time, Liu Yuxi launched his final hysterical Divine Awareness attack at Tan Jiu!
Divine Awareness was a manifestation of the soul's energy. One could attack another's soul through using soul energy. Merely, with an attack like this, although one might be able to kill one's enemy, one would still suffer eighty percent of the damage. It was something that no ordinary people would do unless one have the resolution of dying.
Tan Jiu snarled. He instantly turned into seven people. At the same time, three of his clones' bodies started shining. Even their heads were shining. Those three clones rushed toward Liu Yuxi.
It was extremely hard for one to create clones in the Divine Realm. The reason why Tan Jiu was capable of having nine clones was because he had nine heads. This also allowed him to have nine souls. Only a clone that possessed a soul could be considered as a true clone.
Earlier, when his two previous clones self detonated, he had retrieved the souls from those two clones. However, as for these three clones, he had ignited their souls.
"Ah~~~" Liu Yuxi's eyes were filled with frantic craziness.
As for the three clones, their eyes were also filled with frantic craziness. An explosion even louder than the one from earlier was heard. "Boom!" The Mid Level Heavenly Deity Liu Yuxi and the three Tan Jiu clones had all perished.
At the same time, the entire underground mansion started to crumble even more severely. The entire underground mansion had turned into a mess.

Three clones had self detonated. On top of that, two clones had self detonated earlier. Tan Jiu had already self detonated five clones. Now, all he had remaining were four clones. These four 'Tan Jiu's' were all watching attentively at the location of the explosion with bright expressionful eyes.
At the same time, they covered the entire courtyard with their Spatial Domain.
In an instant, all those rolling or falling crushed rocks, stones and whatnot all stopped moving. The entire courtyard had turned into an immobile state. Tan Jiu's four clones frowned for a short moment and then slowly displayed smiles on their faces.
"Liu Yuxi, you've finally died!"
First Tan Jiu seriously injured Liu Yuxi with his sneak attack. He then self detonated five of his clones. Only through these methods did he managed to kill Liu Yuxi who possessed astonishing defense. At the moment when Liu Yuxi was killed, Tan Jiu felt sort of worry-free, sad, and all sorts of other kinds of complicated sensations.
The four clones instantly fused into one.
Tan Jiu walked to the location where Liu Yuxi self detonated. At this moment, a damaged battle armor, a Storage Divine Artifact as well as a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Gloves remained on the ground.
These were the remnants of Liu Yuxi. Only through discovering these remnants as well as the fact that Liu Yuxi had already ignored his Nascent Soul earlier did Tan Jiu become certain that Liu Yuxi had died. When one ignited one's soul, even if others were to not attack, one would still likely only survive for a couple breaths time.
Qin Yu's Universal World's Spatial Energy had been locked on Tan Jiu the entire time.
"I must kill him with a single strike. This Tan Jiu has yet to let go of his guard. This is not the best opportunity to kill him. I'll wait till the moment when he plucks the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, that will be the best moment to launch my sneak attack on him."
Qin Yu slightly arched his back. His attention had been condensed to the max. He was able to execute his strongest strike at any moment!
Tan Jiu picked up the remnants of Liu Yuxi. He felt a burst of carefreeness. After killing Liu Yuxi, not only did he manage to obtain a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and all his treasures, at the same time… the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was completely his now.
Tan Jiu walked over to the pond where the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was.
The intense battle from earlier did not spread to the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus at all. The Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was still radiating a black light. Especially that sparking and translucent black lotus core, it was extremely alluring.
Tan Jiu stepped into the pond. Although this Unitary Heavy Water was powerful, it was not powerful enough to kill a Heavenly Deity.
"This Unitary Heavy Water is truly cold!" Tan Jiu was shivering.
He then thrust his hands into the bottom of the pond. Tan Jiu needed to pull out the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus from the bottom of the pond. He didn't dare to nor did he want to pull the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus by its lotus flower.
At this moment, Tan Jiu's attention was completely concentrated on the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus.
"This is the moment!"
A long spear suddenly appeared in Qin Yu's hand. The Divine Spear Waning Snow that was completely black before now possessed some dark yellow color in both its shaft and tip. The amount of dark yellow was extremely tiny. It was like some small specks on the spear.
Divine Spear Waning Snow. The Divine Spear Waning Snow that had absorbed a miniscule amount of Dark and Yellow Energy!
Behind Tan Jiu who have his back bent and hands inside the pond of Unitary Heavy Water suddenly appeared Qin Yu. Qin Yu's Divine Spear Waning Snow flashed. Like piercing through leather, it pierced through Tan Jiu's head.
The two great auxiliary functions of the Divine Spear Waning Snow: Body Break and Devouring Soul!
Tan Jiu's skull instantly turned to fine dust. As for Tan Jiu's body, it turned into seven or eight fragments. However, those seven or eight fragments actually instantly turned into three Tan Jiu's.
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock. "How is he still alive? His head has turned into fine dust already. The soul within his head has also been shattered already. How is it that he still has three clones?"
Qin Yu was shocked. However, Tan Jiu was even more shocked.
Tan Jiu had never thought that he would actually have his head smashed to nothingness without even noticing it.
"It's the so close yet worlds apart! It's Qin Yu!" Tan Jiu instantly understood what had happened. "Fortunately I would always put my nine soul sections into different parts of my body when I am not in battle."
Tan Jiu was extremely crafty. His soul was in nine sections. Usually, he would only place a single soul section in his head. As for the other eight soul sections, he would place them in different places like his chest, dantian, arms and so on…
This was the method that Tan Jiu used in order to prevent himself from being killed by a sneak attack. This time around, this method of his saved his life. Qin Yu only managed to destroy one of the soul sections as well as the 'Jade Blood Golden Pellet' of that soul. (When Divine Energy transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, it would create a jade green colored golden pellet. This golden pellet is called the Jade Blood Golden Pellet. The Jade Blood Golden Pellet is the source of Heavenly Divine Energy.)
The Nascent Soul was the core of the soul whereas the Jade Blood Golden Pellet was the source of the Heavenly Divine Energy.
The heads of Heavenly Deities would usually contain a Nascent Soul and a Jade Blood Golden Pellet.
Qin Yu glanced at the three clones. These three clones were all holding a three-sectioned staff. These three sectioned staffs was the nine sectioned whip divided into three parts. Even Qin Yu must admit that this nine sectioned whip was created extremely skillfully.
"QIn Yu, you actually dared to sneak attack me and destroy a clone of mine. However, you would no longer have another opportunity now. Last time I did not kill you, this time…" Sneered a Tan Jiu clone.
Even now, Tan Jiu was still extremely confident in killing Qin Yu.
In Tan Jiu's mind, Qin Yu was merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity. He was merely someone who relied on his remarkable ability of 'so close yet worlds apart.' Tan Jiu believed that if he were to go all out, then Qin Yu is certain to die.
"These three clones, I must kill them all. I cannot allow a single one to escape." Qin Yu was thinking extremely fast.
"Mn, you're not using that Heavenly Divine Sword?" Said the Tan Jiu to Qin Yu's left with a frown on his face. And at this moment…
Qin Yu's figure suddenly appeared beside the Tan Jiu to his right.
With a movement of his right arm, the Divine Spear Waning Snow in Qin Yu's hand started to twist as it was thrust forward. Wherever the Divine Spear Waning Snow passed, spatial cracks of the thickness of hairs appeared in the Divine Realm.
The Tan Jiu to the right confidently used the three sectioned staff in his hand to block the spear strike. Tan Jiu believed that he was able to block Qin Yu's High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact using a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
Tan Jiu's expression suddenly changed. The three sectioned staff started to vibrate and then cracked apart. As for that spear, it pierced through Tan Jiu's neck while he was in a state of shock.
Qin Yu shouted angrily.
Tan Jiu felt a burst of exotic energy. Following along the wound in his neck, it spread all over his body. After that, both his head and his chest turned into fine dust! That Nascent Soul and the Jade Blood Golden Pellet had also turned into fine dust.
The other two Tan Jiu's' expressions instantly grew pale. At the same time, their eyes were open wide like balls.
The first reaction of these two Tan Jiu's were… to escape!
The two Tan Jiu's, one proceeded to flee toward the entrance of the tunnel whereas the other proceeded to run toward the opposite direction, the direction toward the inside of the underground mansion.
"What sort of weapon is that? It's not a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact; is it something that's even more powerful than a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact?" Tan Jiu felt that his heart was shivering. Could it be a legendary Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?
Tan Jiu was filled with fear and shock.
Ordinary Deities did not know about the great name of Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, Tan Jiu, a Mid Level Heavenly Deity, had heard about rumors of it before. Merely, he had never seen one before. Or rather… he wouldn't know even if he had seen one.
"Trying to flee?"
Seeing the two Tan Jiu's fleeing in opposite directions, Qin Yu instantly made his decision to first kill the Tan Jiu that was fleeing toward the tunnel entrance.
Qin Yu believed that it would require the Tan Jiu who fled toward the underground mansion to create a tunnel in order to run away. This amount of time was sufficient for him to kill the other Tan Jiu.
After two continuous teleportations, Qin Yu arrived inside the tunnel and stopped the path of Tan Jiu.
"Hooh!" The first reaction Tan Jiu had when he saw Qin Yu was spreading out his Spatial Domain and then smash his weapon toward Qin Yu.
While rotating rapidly, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was thrust forward. Like a dragon flying out from the sea, with bits of dark black color to the tip of the spear, the Spatial Domain was unable to block the Divine Spear Waning Snow at all.
When the attack was powerful enough, even Spatial Domain would be useless.
After all, the current Divine Spear Waning Snow was already capable of creating tiny spatial cracks.
"Bang!" The three sectioned staff was forcibly thrust apart by the Divine Spear Waning Snow from the inside. The Divine Spear Waning Snow continued to thrust toward Tan Jiu's neck. Tan Jiu who already knew that he cannot block the incoming strike have directly let his Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet out from his body. However…
With a twist of the Divine Spear Waning Snow that Qin Yu held, a weak ray of Dark and Yellow Energy burst forth from the tip of the spear and directly bonded Tan Jiu's Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet. In an instant, the Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet have turned to dust.
"There's one left!"
Qin Yu did not bother to care about the corpse before him. He once again started teleporting!
After two teleportations, Qin Yu had arrived inside the underground mansion. Qin Yu started to spread the Spatial Energy from his Universal World. With lightning speed, Qin Yu teleported three more times and continued to search the underground mansion. Only then, did he discovered that the situation was bad.
With a movement of his body, Qin Yu appeared inside a study room behind the underground mansion.
At this moment, there was surprisingly a tunnel on the wall of this room.
Qin Yu immediately grew anxious and angry. "What a mistake, truly a great mistake. This Tan Jiu had stayed in the underground mansion for countless years, how could he only leave a single tunnel? Although barely any time passed, but with his speed, I suspect he'd already reached several tens of miles away. My Spatial Energy is only capable of searching a range of around a hundred meters; without an exact direction, how could I possibly find him?"
Qin Yu was at a loss as to what to do.
This study room was located at the back of the underground mansion. The room where Qin Yu hid himself in was far away from this place. Thus, Qin Yu had never discovered that there was another secret tunnel here.
Everything was in vain. A Tan Jiu clone managed to escape.
"Forget about it, even if this Tan Jiu managed to survive, what could he possibly do after fleeing?" Qin Yu didn't really care about it either. "Although he had discovered my secret of 'teleportation,' but would others believe him if he were to tell them?"
Teleportation was a remarkable ability that only Godkings possessed. This was an ironclad law of the Divine Realm for the past a hundred million and two quadrillion years.
Even if Tan Jiu were to tell others that there was someone who possess a remarkable ability similar to that of teleportation, how many people from the Divine Realm would actually believe him?
Although Qin Yu also knew that even if there weren't going to be many people that would believe Tan Jiu, it would still make things troublesome for him. However, as Tan Jiu already escaped, Qin Yu could only comfort himself this way.
With a flash of his body, Qin Yu reappeared in the courtyard.
Seeing the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus on the pond of Unitary Heavy Water before him, Qin Yu started to smile. "For this Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, a Mid Level Heavenly Deity died and another Mid Level Heavenly Deity had lost eight of his nine clones."
Qin Yu glanced at the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. His gaze then turned to the Divine Spear Waning Snow in his hand.
Although he had imagined the might of the Divine Spear Waning Snow before, but Qin Yu was still overjoyed to see how powerful it was in action.
A Mid Level Heavenly Deity using a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact against him who used the Divine Spear Waning Snow with Divine Energy. However, even though this was the case, the Divine Spear Waning Snow still broke apart his opponent's Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
"Originally, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was comparable to a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. And now, its might was much more powerful than before. It was likely that even if it was to be inferior to a first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, it would not be much inferior." Qin Yu thought in his heart.
Furthermore, the current Divine Spear Waning Snow had only absorbed a very small amount of Dark and Yellow Energy. Exactly how powerful the Divine Spear Waning Snow would be once it finished absorbing it completely, Qin Yu was excited just thinking about it.
"If I hadn't use the Divine Spear Waning Snow and had only used the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact Heavenly Divine Sword Scarlet Blood, then killing Tan Jiu would simply be a dream. However when I used the Divine Spear Waning Snow, I was able to trample upon him. A good weapon indeed provides a different result!"
Qin Yu became even more aware of the advantage of possessing a powerful weapon.
With an intention of his mind, the Divine Spear Waning Snow returned into Qin Yu's Universal World and once again began absorbing the Dark and Yellow Energy.
"The Divine Spear Waning Snow is like teleportation, it's best for me to only use them in important moments. Trump cards, the deeper I hide them, the better their effects." Qin Yu thought in his heart. Qin Yu then looked to the pond before him.
With merely an intention, the Spatial Energy from the Universal World covered the entire pond of Unitary Heavy Water and the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. And then…
The Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus and the Unitary Heavy Water all disappeared. They had already arrived in the Universal World. As for Qin Yu, he too had disappeared from the underground mansion and entered into the Universal World.
Qin Yu stood on a piece of meadows. The Unitary Heavy Water and the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was floating before Qin Yu. When inside the Universal World, everything changed according to Qin Yu's intention.
With an intention of his mind, the Unitary Heavy Water separated from the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus.
"The lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus could become a Magnificent Lotus Clone after refining it. The Magnificent Lotus Clone naturally possesses the Unitary Heavy Water Domain… its body's toughness is even greater than that of a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact."
Qin Yu's heart was extremely relaxed.
What the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus attracted him the most was the lotus core.
It was extremely hard for one to refine a clone. That was because a true clone required a soul. Who among ordinary people are capable of splitting their souls?
However, the lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was different. The lotus core was born through absorbing Grandmist Spiritual Energy. The entire lotus core was a conscious-less soul body. After Qin Yu finished refining it, he merely needed to leave a bit of his consciousness in it in order to obtain a clone.
Furthermore, Qin Yu believed that the fighting strength of the clone might be even greater than his own body.
"I shall combine this Unitary Heavy Water with the Unitary Heavy Water that I had obtained from the Dark Star Realm." With an intention of his mind, a water ball of Unitary Heavy Water appeared floating in the sky. At the same time, beside this ball of Golden Elemental Heavy Water was another ball of Unitary Heavy Water and a golden bead.
This golden colored bead was extremely unusual. It was so cold that Qin Yu estimated that it was something that was impossible to refine unless one has reached the Embryo Soul level.
Right when Qin Yu was pondering…
"Mn?" Qin Yu opened his eyes wide in shock.
The golden bead voluntarily started flying toward the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. At the same time, the black lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus shot out a ray of black light. The golden bead also shot out a ray of golden light. The two lights actually started to wind together…
