In the enormous martial practice grounds, Heavenly Deity spectators, who numbered over ten thousand, were in absolute silence. It was so quiet that it was scary. However, after a short moment of quietness, what followed was a tide of discussion noise.
There were those discussing Dong Hou's decision and those talking about Qin Yu becoming the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace.
"Quiet." Huangfu Liejun's cold voice sounded. His voice echoed through the entire martial practice grounds. All of the Heavenly Deities stopped talking and looked toward Huangfu Liejun.
Only then did Huangfu Liejun have a slight smile on his face. With a clear voice, he said. "Dong Hou's party has conceded. Adding on the fact that Qin Yu's party has already achieved a victory over Xue Yu's party, Qin Yu's party has thus won twice in a row. Hence, the position of the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace shall go to Mister Qin Yu."
At this moment, the Utmost East Sage Emperor also stood up.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu currently had a warm smile on his face. Once he stood up, Huangfu Liejun immediately sat back down and stopped talking. The Utmost East Sage Emperor opened his mouth and spoke. "A conclusion has been reached for the battle for the position of Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace. Qin Yu will be the new Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace." As he said that, the Utmost East Sage Emperor looked at Qin Yu while smiling.
In an instant, almost everyone's gaze was focused upon Qin Yu who was in the middle of the martial practice grounds.
Qin Yu also slightly smiled to the Utmost East Sage Emperor. He then bowed.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu continued. "Also from today hence, our Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold's Four Great Palaces will all have Palace Masters. In order to congratulate this rejoicing occasion, I have decided that our Mount Dazzling Gold shall have a proper celebration for this tonight. Ordinary Heavenly Deities shall celebrate in the barracks. As for military officers and such, they are all to come to the Imperial Palace to celebrate."
"Thank you Your Majesty Sage Emperor."
Over ten thousand Heavenly Deities all got down on one knee. The descendants of the Huangfu Clan, Qin Yu, Huangfu Liejun, Black Wing Palace's Palace Master and the Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master all got down on one knee and said respectfully.
Their voices were like a tide that resonated until it reached the horizon.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor Huangfu Yu displayed a smile on his face. At this moment, the Utmost East Sage Emperor was in a very excellent mood.
The Eight Great Sacred Lands of the Divine Realm, in the Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold, the people with the highest status were the three Godkings: Utmost East Sage Emperor, Hundred Flowers Godking and the Gold Sword Godking. After them were the Four Great Palace Masters of the Misty Mystic Palace, Black Wind Palace, Heaven Desolate Palace and Liejun's Palace. After them were the nine large squadron captains of the Heavenly Deity Army…
Qin Yu, as the Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace, possessed a status above that of ordinary princes and princesses.
In the Eight Great Families of the Divine Clan, being a princess or a prince, was merely an identity. It did not signify that those princesses and princes possessed a very high status. In order to obtain a high status, one must possess enough strength to fight for the status.
When the Dark Curtain of Night descended, the entire Divine Realm was covered in pitch black darkness. However, the Dazzling Gold City of the Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold was covered in golden light. The entire Dazzling Gold City had turned into a city without night.
Regardless of whether it were the Utmost Northern Region's Floating Snow City's Dark Curtain of Night or the Utmost Southern Region's Light Lens City's Light of Daytime, they were both created through Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. If the Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold wanted to make the small region of Dazzling Gold City filled with light, it was an extremely simple task to do.
Inside the Imperial City of the Dazzling Gold City.
Tonight's Imperial City was unprecedentedly lively. The Golden Light Park of the Imperial City was the location where the Utmost East Sage Emperor had called for the gathering to take place. Tonight the Golden Light Park was bustling with noise and excitement. Over a thousand people were gathered here. Transparent rectangular tables that were shining like quicksilver were placed in this location.
Beside each rectangular table sat twelve Heavenly Deities. There were over a hundred of these rectangular tables in total.
The tables were placed in picturesque disorder around the Golden Light Park.
Other than these transparent rectangular tables, there were also other small transparent tables. Beside those small transparent tables sat only one or two individuals.
The Utmost East Sage Emperor and his wife sat on an elevated platform in the Golden Light Park. Before the two of them was a horizontal small rectangular transparent table. The Gold Sword Godking and the Hundred Flowers Godking sat on the two sides of the Utmost East Sage Emperor. Before the two of them was also a horizontal small rectangular transparent table. On top of the horizontal small rectangular transparent tables were all kinds of fine liquor and delicious food.
Seated underneath the Three Great Godkings.
Were the Four Great Palace Masters: The Palace Master of the Misty Mystic Palace, Qin Yu; the Palace Master of the Black Wind Palace; the Palace Master of the Heaven Desolate Palace and the Liejun Palace's Palace Master. The four of them were seated in two rows.
Underneath them were the nine large squadron captains of the Heavenly Deity Army. Only these people possessed their own small rectangular tables. As for the other people, even the princes and princesses, were seated around the large transparent rectangular tables.
Just by looking at this sort of arrangement, one would be able to see the strict hierarchy of the Divine Realm.
"Actually, being the Sage Emperor is not very interesting either." Qin Yu listened as the Utmost East Sage Emperor spoke to everyone underneath him. He was unable to refrain from gasping in his heart.
Huangfu Yu did not speak much. Right after Huangfu Yu finished his speech, the entire Golden Light Park grew bustling with noise and excitement.
The army officers underneath all possessed status close to one another. Thus, they started to lively chat and drink. As for the descendants of the Huangfu Clan, they too were chatting and drinking with one another.
As for the Utmost East Sage Emperor, he was chatting with the Gold Sword Godking and the Hundred Flowers Godking. Occasionally, he would smile and speak to the four Palace Masters underneath him.
As for Qin Yu and them, they would mostly chat with each other…
"Brother Qin Yu, I am the Palace Master of the Black Wind Palace, Gu Zhuang. You've been in our Dazzling Gold City for some time now, however, only now do I manage to have the opportunity to chat with you. Haha…" Said the Black Wind Palace's Palace Master who sat beside Qin Yu as he smiled and raised his wine cup for a toast.
Qin Yu also raised his wine cup. "Palace Master Gu Zhuang, I have only just entered the Dazzling Gold City. There are still many things that I do not understand. Palace Master Gu Zhuang, please give me some pointers."
This Gu Zhuang was silver haired, silver browed and baby faced. His entire body radiated a chilling aura. Merely, when he smiled, he also appeared to be very amiable and approachable. The Palace Masters of the Black Wind Palace and the Heaven Desolate Palace both possessed extremely high qualifications, seniority and meritorious services. They were not people that Qin Yu, a new Palace Master, could compare with.
"Haha, Brother Qin Yu, there is no need for you to be worried. The Four Great Palace Masters do not have much of anything to take care of. Only during the times of war would we step forth to lead the army into battle." Said the Black Wind Palace's Palace Master Gu Zhuang with a light smile. "In the great war of the Divine Realm, the Godking level experts would not easily join the battle. Under normal circumstances, it is sufficient for us to be the ones watching over the battle."
Qin Yu nodded his head in understanding.
And at this moment, the two Palace Masters across from him… the Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master and the Liejun's Palace's Palace Master both walked over. The Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master was a bald headed man. He wore a white colored silk gown and had a slight smile on his face.
The Liejun's Palace's Palace Master was Huangfu Liejun. He was a short blond haired man who was unflustered like the ocean and strong like a volcano.
The Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master was a bald headed man who was always smiling. "Brother Qin Yu, I am the Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master, Ji Lusheng. You've been in the Dazzling Gold City for this long, yet I have not paid you a visit at your mansion yet. Please do not take offense."
"It is I who should've gone and paid you a visit, Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master." Qin Yu immediately stood up.
Huangfu Liejun laughed heartily and said. "It is the first time for both Old Brother Ji and Old Brother Gu to meet Qin Yu. I, on the other hand, have met Qin Yu several times. Haha, come, there's no need for the four of us to regard each other as strangers. Let's all sit down."
Huangfu Liejun said, as he sat down cross-legged.
These Four Great Palace Masters were gathered together. The four of them started chatting. As they drank with each other, the Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master and the Black Wind Palace's Palace Master also grew more amiable with Qin Yu.
Right when they were chatting excitedly, Huangfu Liejun suddenly raised his wine cup and said in a serious tone." Brother Qin Yu, Old Brother Gu, Old Brother Ji, to be honest, with me being a Palace Master, I have in fact stolen the army authority that you all possessed. Today, I shall apologize humbly to you all first. I wish that the three of you do not mind about that."
Qin Yu was startled.
"Stolen the army authority? How did this come to be?" Qin Yu was completely confused.
Seeing Qin Yu's expression, the Heaven Desolate Palace's Palace Master Ji Lusheng and the Black Wind Palace's Palace Master Gu Zhuang both knew that Qin Yu was confused. The Black Wind Palace's Palace Master Gu Zhuang smiled and said. "Liejun said that mostly because… our Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold originally only possessed the Misty Mystic Palace, Black Wind Palace and Heaven Desolate Palace, the Three Great Palaces. Afterwards, because Liejun managed to make a great contribution and because the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master from then was still present, a new palace, the Liejun's Palace, was established."
While Qin Yu now understood the history of things, he was still confused. "Stolen the army authority? What was that about?"
Huangfu Liejun explained personally. "Brother Qin Yu, our Mount Dazzling Gold's Army possesses a total of nine large squadrons. Under normal circumstances, it is the large squadron captains that lead the squadrons. However, in times of true war, it will be us, the Palace Masters that lead the large squadrons. In the past when there were only three Palace Masters, the Palace Masters would each lead three large Heavenly Deity squadrons. And now that we have established the Liejun's Palace, my Liejun's Palace ended up commanding three large Heavenly Deity squadrons. As for the three of you, you ended up only leading two large Heavenly Deity squadrons each. I have been ashamed because of that for the entire time. I am truly sorry."
Only now did Qin Yu completely understand what's going on.
The Godking level experts did not need to bring along subordinates with them as a single Godking was capable of determining the outcome of a battle. However, in ordinary wars of the Divine Realm, the Godkings would not join the battle. It was the Palace Masters who led the Heavenly Deity Army to battle.
"Liejun, there is no need for you to think about it. You becoming a Palace Master was something that I, balded headed Ji and old Lan all agreed to. We also decided to give you a large Heavenly Deity squadron underneath us each. This was a decision from a long time ago. For one, you are very strong and know when to fight when leading troops." Said Palace Master Gu Zhuang with a light smile.
[TL: Lan is the same 'Misty' in the Misty Mystic Palace.]
Qin Yu understood completely now.
"Brother Liejun, this is merely a trivial matter. Actually, I am not particularly proficient in leading armies. I am more fond of formation arrays. I also possess some interest in training and artifact crafting. Other than those…" Qin Yu smiled as he shook his head.
The Heaven Desolate Palace master Ji Lusheng immediately smiled and said. "Brother Qin Yu, there is no need for you to be modest. I have personally seen your formation array space at the martial practice grounds. That formation array space that you created was definitely comparable to the space that Godkings can deploy. On the battlefields of the Divine Realm, with you present… as long as your opponent is not a Godking, you are certain to win."
"Number one individual beneath the Godkings, this is not false." Huangfu Liejun also said while smiling.
Qin Yu smiled modestly. Suddenly, Qin Yu recalled a matter. He immediately asked. "Brother Liejun, what happened to the previous Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master?"
"Old Lan?" Gu Zhuang and Ji Lusheng glanced at each other. Then sighed.
Huangfu Liejun's expression had also grown dim. He sighed and said. "The war of the Divine Realm six quadrillion years ago was truly too fierce and cruel…. That battle could be considered as being the largest war since the formation of the Divine Realm. In that battle, over ten Godkings fell. As for High Level Heavenly Deities, the number of them that perished was innumerable."
Qin Yu was overwhelmed with shock.
Over ten Godkings fell? Countless High Level Heavenly Deities died?
Gu Zhuang smiled bitterly and said. "Brother Qin Yu, let me tell you. The Three Great Palaces, Misty Mystic Palace, Black Wind Palace and the Heaven Desolate Palace, all three of them were named after their first Palace Master. In that battle… the first Palace Masters of the Misty Mystic Palace, Black Wind Palace and Heaven Desolate Palace all fell. I am someone who succeeded the Black Wind Palace's Palace Master in the course of the battle."
[TL: Misty Mystic → Lan Xuan. Black Wind → Hei Feng. Heaven Desolate → Tian Huang. Liejun → Great Split/Rend.]
"I am the same." Ji Lusheng sighed and said. "That battle was truly too cruel and fiery. The battle spread through the entire Heaven and Earth… Practically all of the Godkings had shown themselves. Even Exalted Celestials had joined the battle in the shadows!"
Qin Yu's heart shook with shock.
Exactly what sort of war happened six quadrillion years ago?
Qin Yu have once heard about the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan's father-in-law mentioning this battle in Yuchi City. That High Level Deity had only mentioned that the Divine Realm would have a war every six billion years.
However, it appears now that the war of every six billion years was merely a small battle.
That battle from six quadrillion years ago was the true war of the Divine Realm.
Godkings falling one by one. Even Exalted Celestials were helping in the dark… All of the first generation Palace Masters of the Utmost Eastern Region's Mount Dazzling Gold had fallen during the battle. Just by that, one could tell exactly how fierce and violent the battle had been.
"Why did such a battle occur?" Qin Yu asked.
There must definitely be a reason for everything to occur. The various Godkings would definitely not be lunatics who started waging war with one another for no reason at all.
"Reason? That battle bears upon the opportunity to become an Exalted Celestial. In that battle, a Godking managed to achieve the final victory. He ended up becoming the new Exalted Celestial. And from that, the Divine Realm now has three Exalted Celestials." Gasped Huangfu Liejun.
The upper echelons that had experienced the battle from six quadrillion years ago were still very clear about the course of events of that battle.
"New Exalted Celestial?" Qin Yu's heart was trembling.
No wonder it caused the entire Divine Realm to go frantic and kill that many Godkings. So it was actually because of the opportunity to become an Exalted Celestial.
"Weren't there three Exalted Celestials in the Divine Realm? How come only a single most frightening battle that engulfed the entire Divine Realm occurred?" Confused, Qin Yu asked. He believed that since there were three Exalted Celestials, there should be three battles like that.
The Black Wind Palace's Palace Master Gu Zhuang shook his head and said while smiling. "No. When the Divine Realm was formed, there were already two Exalted Celestials."
Qin Yu suddenly understood.
There were already two Exalted Celestials when the Divine Realm was formed.
And in the close to twelve quadrillion years, there had only been a single new Exalted Celestial. And that Exalted Celestial was someone who attained the Exalted Celestial status in the incomparable great battle from six quadrillion years ago.
"What a fierce and bitter battle!" Just by thinking, Qin Yu was able to feel a strong throbbing on his heart.

On the day after the banquet, Qin Yu brought Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu and arrived at the Misty Mystic Palace.
In the Imperial City, which was located in the center of the Dazzling Gold City, there were five palaces. One was the Utmost East Sage Emperor's Palace. The other four were the Four Great Palaces. The Misty Mystic Palace that Qin Yu had was also the largest palace among the four.
"This Misty Mystic Palace is truly large." Said Qin Yu with a smile as he looked to the Misty Mystic Palace before him.
Qiuzhong Fu said respectfully. "Master, the Misty Mystic Palace and the other Three Great Palace are the commanders of the Heavenly Deity Army. There are also elite Heavenly Deity mid squadrons stationed here. Thus, naturally the Misty Mystic Palace would be large."
"Elite Heavenly Deity mid squadrons?" Qin Yu was confused.
After the banquet, the Utmost East Sage Emperor had only called Qin Yu and said some kind words of congratulations to him and presented him the Misty Mystic Palace's Palace Master's Title Plate. As for the other trivial matters, he did not mention them.
And at this moment, the entrance guards of the Misty Mystic Palace had noticed Qin Yu. This guard had already seen Qin Yu before at the martial practice grounds. Thus, he instantly recognized Qin Yu.
"Quickly, quickly go and report to the large squadron captain." Said that guard to another guard. He then started to lightly run to Qin Yu. He got down on one knee and said respectfully. "Liu Rufeng of the Misty Mystic Palace's number one elite mid squadron pays his respect to Lord Palace Master."
Qin Yu lightly nodded. "You can rise."
However, Qin Yu started to ponder in his heart. "Misty Mystic Palace's number one elite mid squadron? It seemed like there ought to be many people and more than a single mid squadron." Qin Yu asked directly. "How many elite mid squadrons are there in the Misty Mystic Palace currently?"
That guard said respectfully. "The Heavenly Deity Army has nine large squadrons. The first large squadron and the second large squadron belong to the Misty Mystic Palace. The two large squadron captains have respectively dispatched two elite mid squadrons to come and await for Your Lordship Palace Master to command. The two large squadron captains have also already arrived and are waiting for Lord Palace Master."
Respectively dispatched two elite mid squadrons. In other words, there were a total of four elite mid squadrons.
Right after the guard Liu Rufeng finished saying those words, a man and a woman walked out from the Misty Mystic Palace's entrance. Behind the man and woman were four more people. These four people were two males and two females.
"Princess Jing?" Qin Yu was surprised to see that the woman in the front was actually Huangfu Jing.
Huangfu Jing walked over with a smile on her face. "Qin Yu, ah, I should address you as Lord Palace Master. You didn't expect this right? I am the large squadron captain of the second Heavenly Deity large squadron. I am also currently a direct subordinate underneath you."
As for the man beside Huangfu Jing, he was a robust man with a head full of golden lion like hair.
"This subordinate is the large squadron captain of the first Heavenly Deity large squadron, Ying Qiu. Pays his respect to Lord Palace Master!" Said that robust man respectfully as he bowed.
"Your surname is Ying?" Qin Yu said in surprise.
The Qin Clan of that Qin Yu was from, back during the generation of the Qin Shihuang, their clan name was actually Ying. In that case, this Ying Qiu could be said as being from the same clan as Qin Yu. This had also caused Qin Yu to have a amiable feeling toward this Ying Qiu.
"Ying Qiu, Ying Qiu, haha, truly a good name." Said Qin Yu while smiling. This caused Ying Qiu to be completely confused.
Huangfu Jing's nose wrinkled. She humphed and said. "Lord Palace Master, is the name Ying Qiu something rejoicing?"
"If we were to mention it, then this Ying Qiu could be considered as being from the same clan as me. Well then, we shouldn't continue to stand at the entrance the entire time. Let's go in and then speak." Qin Yu entered into the Misty Mystic Palace with a smile on his face.
After Qin Yu checked into the Misty Mystic Palace, he soon brought the over a hundred servants of his from the Flowing Cloud Mansion to the Misty Mystic Palace. At the same time, he also dispatched an elite mid squadron from the Misty Mystic Palace to the Flowing Cloud Mansion.
Ever since the day he checked into the Misty Mystic Palace, in the future, Qin Yu would usually end up staying in the Misty Mystic Palace.
As Qin Yu stayed in the Misty Mystic Palace and had just started his peaceful life, Wu Lan, Hong Yu, Lu Shui and Wu He from the Jiang Lan Realm had a matter to trouble Qin Yu.
Misty Mystic Palace. Wind Listening Hall.
Qin Yu sat in the master's seat. Standing on his two sides were Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu. Tan Jiu and three other Heavenly Deities were standing underneath.
"Tan Jiu, I have an important matter that I want you to take care of. The three Low Level Heavenly Deities behind you will listen to your orders and dispatchment." Qin Yu said directly.
The current Tan Jiu was extremely respectful toward Qin Yu.
After the battle last time, Qin Yu had already bestowed the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, the enormous heavy sword, to Tan Jiu. After obtaining this High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, Tan Jiu's might had increased greatly. It could now be said that there was barely anyone at the Mid Level Heavenly Deity stage that could match against him.
Even High Level Heavenly Deities, when confronted with Tan Jiu, would not dare to look down upon him. After all, if Tan Jiu's nine clones were to all attack frantically together, then even if a High Level Heavenly were able to destroy the space and a clone along with it, they would not be able to destroy the space and kill all nine clones at the same time.
Tan Jiu's others clones would have sufficient time to use the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and teach the High Level Heavenly Deity a bitter lesson. As Tan Jiu's strength had increased greatly and, on top of that, Qin Yu currently possessed the high status of a Palace Master, Tan Jiu naturally became even more respectful of Qin Yu.
"Please go ahead and give me the order, master. This subordinate will definitely use all his strength to accomplish the mission." Said Tan Jiu respectfully.
Qin Yu slightly nodded and then said. "I have four demon beasts. All four of them are about to undergo their Divine Tribulations. Merely, Mount Dazzling Gold does not allow for ordinary Deities, much less allowing demon beasts to undergo their Divine Tribulations. The dates of their tribulations are not far from now. I plan to have the four of you take care of the four demon beasts and inform me about it after they finished their Divine Tribulations."
Hearing that it was such a simple mission, Tan Jiu immediately answered. "Yes, master."
"Good. Then I shall first bring you all out of the Dazzling Gold City." Qin Yu directly stood up. He then turned around and said to Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu. "Uncle Fu, Qiuzhong, the two of you can stay in the Misty Mystic Palace and wait for my return."
The two accepted the order.
After that, Qin Yu brought Tan Jiu and the other three Heavenly Deities and left the Misty Mystic Palace. Qin Yu had no other choice but to go personally. Since Wu Lan and them were staying in the Jiang Lan Realm, he couldn't just let them out right away.
Furthermore, he also could not give Tan Jiu the Jiang Lan Realm. Thus, he had no choice but to go personally.
The Mount Dazzling Gold had a very low restriction on the freedom of the Heavenly Deities on it. For ordinary Heavenly Deities, they would be able to leave with the approval of their superior military officers. For High Level Heavenly Deities or the Four Palace Masters like Qin Yu, they were able to go out whenever they wished.
Upon seeing Qin Yu, the guards outside of the Dazzling Gold City immediately let him pass. The battle at the martial practice grounds had caused practically everyone in the Dazzling Gold City to know who Qin Yu was.
"It's Palace Master Qin Yu. Open the city gate." The guard immediately shouted. As the number of Heavenly Deities who entered and exited the Dazzling Gold City was very low, the city gates were usually closed.
Just like that, Qin Yu and his group of people left the Dazzling Gold City.
After exiting the Dazzling Gold City, Qin Yu and them started flying rapidly. Soon, they passed through the mountain road and then, following the tunnel, exited Mount Dazzling Gold.
Qin Yu and his group of people landed on the ground.
"Wu Lan, Wu He, Hong Yu, Lu Shui, the four of you are to follow Tan Jiu for the time being. After you all successfully pass your Divine Tribulations, I will come and pick you up." With an intention from Qin Yu.
An enormous Subterranean Cave Dragon appeared.
A Subterranean Cave Dragon's torso was several hundred meters long. Its slender and sharp tail was over a hundred meters long. The several hundred sharp claws were shining coldly. Its pair of ice-cold eyes were currently staring at Qin Yu. The Subterranean Cave Dragon spoke. "Master, Wu Lan and them are inside my abdomen scale."
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
Tan Jiu and them were shocked. They never anticipated for the so called demon beast that Qin Yu had to be a monster like the Subterranean Cave Dragon. Although a Subterranean Cave Dragon was a demon beast, it possessed strength close to that of a Low Level Heavenly Deity.
"Tan Jiu, I'll leave the four of them in your hands." Qin Yu looked to Tan Jiu while smiling.
"Master can rest assured." Tan Jiu felt extremely relaxed.
For a king among demon beasts like the Subterranean Cave Dragon, undergoing Divine Tribulation was an extremely simple task. As its strength surpassed that of High Level Deities before even undergoing their Divine Tribulation, the difficulty of its Divine Tribulation was naturally much lower.
"Good. In that case I shall take my leave." Qin Yu glanced at the Subterranean Cave Dragon. Qin Yu's Universal World's Spatial Energy had also discovered, that within the abdomen scale of the Subterranean Cave Dragon, the half a man sized black ant with black light circulating through its surface. That was Wu Lan's true form, the king among ants, Blackstain Ant.
Qin Yu lifted his gown and flew into the sky. He directly flew toward that enormous Mount Dazzling Gold that covered the sky. In the blink of an eye, Qin Yu had disappeared before Tan Jiu and the others.
Wu Lan had followed Qin Yu since the Mortal Realm. Qin Yu had more feelings toward Wu Lan than Qiuzhong Fu, Tan Jiu and them.
After bringing Wu Lan out of the Mount Dazzling Gold, Qin Yu also took a load off his mind.
After Qin Yu returned to the Imperial City's Misty Mystic Palace, he proceeded to directly walk toward his own residence.
"Master." Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu walked toward Qin Yu.
Qin Yu said. "Uncle Fu, from today hence, I plan to enter seclusion training. The seclusion training this time will last all the untill I open the third layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm. Everything regarding the Misty Mystic Palace shall be left in your hand."
After taking care of the matter regarding Wu Lan and the others, there was nothing else for Qin Yu to do.
Uncle Fu also managed to sense Qin Yu's determination. He promptly said. "Master can set your mind at ease and train. This old servant will definitely take care of everything regarding the Misty Mystic Palace." Qiuzhong Fu also bowed alongside Uncle Fu.
Qin Yu lightly nodded. He then walked into his own sleep chamber and then directly entered the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.
Inside the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.
Qin Yu was slowly walking on the smooth meadows. On top of the lone mountain far away, Hei Yu was still thrusting his spear unceasingly. The current Hei Yu's Flowing Light Spear Path was even more vigorous than before. Each and every spear thrust gave Qin Yu a sense of space-time distortion.
"Is this the temporal law? Amazing indeed." Qin Yu slightly smiled.
Qin Yu casually sat on that gentle and smooth meadows. After closing his eyes, Qin Yu was able to sense the gentle breeze brushing through his face. This caused Qin Yu to involuntarily display a peaceful smile.
Time was flowing past unconsciously. As Qin Yu was sitting there quietly, the Divine Energy within his body was rapidly transforming into Heavenly Divine Energy. Qin Yu knew that even if all his energy managed to transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, he would still have to form a Jade Blood Golden Pellet for it to be successful.
As Qin Yu's Divine Energy was being transformed, the Universal World that he had created in the flour paste space was also expanding incessantly with an astonishing speed.
The Universal World seemed to be breathing.
With every breath, a huge amount of flour paste energy was sucked in. This caused the Universal World to grow even bigger. The current Universal World was over a hundred thousand times larger than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm!
Too large. However, even though it was this large, the Universal World was still unceasingly expanding with a shocking speed.
The cost of its expansion was the unceasing consumption of the flour paste energy.
When Qin Yu spent over thirty years in the Jiang Lan's Realm's second layer space, eighty percent of his Divine Energy had transformed to Heavenly Divine Energy. And at this moment, Qin Yu trembled. The peaceful smile on his face had completely disappeared.
The wind in the Jiang Lan Realm suddenly became swift!
The weather of the Jiang Lan Realm was something that changed according to Qin Yu's frame of mind.
Qin Yu suddenly opened his eyes. At this moment, Qin Yu's eyes actually had a nebula spinning, meteor falling, star exploding and all kinds of scenes of the evolution of the cosmos. At the same time… Qin Yu's body had disappeared into thin air.
Inside the Universal Space.
Qin Yu suddenly appeared in the sky of the Universal World. The current Qin Yu had reached an unprecedented peak mental state. Qin Yu mumbled in a low voice. "Never had I expected that the Universal World would have reached the peak of its growth."
That's right. The current Universal World stopped growing. Its surface area was no longer increasing.
Qin Yu suddenly raised his head and looked to the sky.
"If it has truly grown to its limit, then according to the comprehension that I had back then, the next stage is…" A slight smile appeared on Qin Yu's face. He suddenly raised his right hand and pointed to the sky with his forefinger.
In an instant, the boundless Universal World started trembling. It was like the arrival of the apocalypse on this Universal World that was over a hundred thousand times larger than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. The ocean waves were surging, the mountains were cracking open, the meadows were instantly engulfed…
"Heaven and Earth, Break! The Universe, Split!"
Qin Yu chanted in a low voice.
In an instant, as if millions upon millions of lightning strikes had descended upon the Universal World, the frightening noise was resonating everywhere. Like a porcelain plate shattering, the azure sky collapsed and fall apart.
Numerous billion mile long enormous cracks had covered the earth.
In Qin Yu's eyes, the different scenes of the evolution of the cosmos flashed through.
Qin Yu chated in a low voice.
In an instant…
"Boom!" A soul-trembling sound echoed throughout the entire Universal World. The Universal World that had already collapsed to its limit, had completely exploded. The membrane that separated the Universal World and the flour paste space, after being affected by the explosion, was forced apart to all directions. At the same time, even more flour paste energy started to frantically rush into the Universal World.
The shattered sky, earth, and rivers started to absorb the flour paste energy. Some of it turned into planets. Some of it turned into stars. Some of it turned into the boundless outer space. Some of it turned into enormous nebula…
Boundless stars. Vast starry sky.
The Universal World perished. What was created was an enormous Cosmos over ten times larger than the Universal World. As for the creator of this enormous Cosmos, Qin Yu, he was currently standing in the boundless cosmic space.
[TL: Thank god I used cosmos and cosmic space before. Otherwise, I would've been royally fucked with the Universe Stage and then another Universe Stage lol. Technically, the Universe Stage is the Qiankun Stage which in turn could mean Heaven and Earth Stage. But Heaven and Earth Stage doesn't describe the stage properly :. Perhaps I should've use the World Stage. But then it'll become Worldly World… super weird.]
