The second chosen candidate spot was obtained by Zhou Xian. This news was soon spread like wildfire. The entire Floating Snow City came to understand that everyone that had participated in the Utmost North Sage Emperor's banquet were all full of praise for Qin Yu's Purple Mystic Mansion. They were all chatting with each other about it…
However, even though this was the case, Qin Yu still did not obtain the second chosen candidate spot. This caused many people to feel sorry for Qin Yu.
While others felt sorry for him, Qin Yu himself was also not feeling well. Merely, he was still displaying a strong external appearance.
After walking out from the Utmost North Sage Emperor's Palace, Uncle Fu who had been waiting outside the entire time immediately walked over to Qin Yu.
"Uncle Fu, let's go."
Qin Yu did not even bother to take a single glance at Zhou Xian behind him whose face was currently filled with smiles. He directly brought Uncle Fu and left toward the Imperial City's city gate. Uncle Fu also knew that Qin Yu was not in a good mood and thus did not say a single word.
"Brother Qin Yu…" Zhou Xian was calling from the back.
However, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu acted as if they hadn't heard him and continued to walk. Seeing this scene, Zhou Xian merely smiled coldly and no longer continued to call for Qin Yu.
"My Lord." Zhou Xian's attendant was also waiting outside the Utmost Sage Emperor's Palace.
Zhou Xian took a glance at his attendant. He then said in a carefree tone. "Let's return." He cast a glance at Qin Yu's back view from afar. With a low voice, he sneered. "So what if you possess an amazing cultivation speed? So what if you are extremely powerful? What use is that? Trying to compete against me?"
Zhou Xian had been resentful towards Qin Yu, ever since he met him again in the Divine Realm.
Less than twenty thousand years ago, Qin Yu was merely a nobody from the Mortal Realm. In Zhou Xian's eyes, he was something that was inferior to even ants. However, in a blink of an eye, he had become a great person of power in the Divine Realm that presented with Zhou Xian enormous pressure.
The enormous drop in gaps between them naturally caused Zhou Xian to feel extremely unwell.
His defeat of Qin Yu this time around had caused Zhou Xian to be extremely delighted.
However, once he thought of the fact that his Imperial Father had assisted him and secretly asked several Sage Emperors to help him and even after that, only being able to barely defeat Qin Yu, Zhou Xian also felt a bit uncomfortable.
After all, such a person that he only barely managed to defeat was a nobody from the Mortal Realm over ten thousand years ago.
"Humph, next time I must make this Qin Yu lose without the slightest amount of doubt." Lightning was flashing through Zhou Xian's eyes.
Inside the guest room of the Floating Cloud Mansion.
Qin Yu sat down. He waved his hand and said. "Uncle Fu, you can withdraw. Do not let anyone disturb me." Uncle Fu bowed respectfully and then withdrew. Only Qin Yu remained in the entire guest room.
The guest room was extremely quiet.
"This judgement, those Godkings that supported Zhou Xian were clearly lying through their teeth." Qin Yu frowned. "This second gift tested the level of diligence and attentiveness. The arrangement of the Purple Mystic Mansion, the craftsmanship of the Purple Mystic Mansion and those Heavenly Divine Artifact ornaments, which among them does not show my diligence and attentiveness?"
"Furthermore… without any of those, merely the Mirage Spirit Mirror would be more than sufficient to compete against that Nine Phoenix Crown. However, during the judgement, they did not even mention the Mirage Spirit Mirror at all. They had completely ignored it. I reckon that… they too knew that they did not have any way to negate the marvelous item of the Divine Realm, the Mirage Spirit Mirror."
Qin Yu sneered in his heart.
How could he possibly not tell that the Godkings were doing shady businesses in the shadows?
"I truly wonder what Zhou Xian's old man, that Northwest Sage Emperor offered this time around to make those Godkings support his son." Qin Yu sneered. The coldness within his eyes grew even more dense.
The maids outside the guest room did not dare to enter at all.
Just from being merely outside the guest room, they were able to clearly sense the dense ice-cold aura emitting from the guest room. Evidently, their master Qin Yu was currenting flaming with rage.
The maids glanced at each other. They all had a helpless expression within their eyes.
Suddenly, a maid looked to the guest room with shock. The other maids also looked over. They were also shocked to discover… that another person had suddenly appeared within the guest room. However, there was absolutely no one that had walked past them to enter the guest room.
Those maids were all stunned. Was the person that entered the guest room a Godking?
"Uncle Lan, why did you come?" Qin Yu saw that Jiang Lan had appeared in the middle of the guest room. He immediately curbed his exposed aura of fury and stood up.
Jiang Lan smiled as he shook his head. "Seeing your appearance earlier, it seems that you were truly unable to contain your anger."
"What use is there to be angry? All it does is merely vent out one's rage. I have yet to reach a state where I can confront insults with a smile. Back in the Sage Emperor's Palace, I could only restrain myself. Now that I've returned, I ended up venting out the discontent that I held in my heart." Qin Yu said casually.
Jiang Lan slightly nodded.
"I also know that you would not become reckless merely because of this small matter. The reason why I've come here, firstly it is to check your current state. Secondly, I have come to ask if you have the certainty in obtaining the third chosen candidate spot?"
"The third chosen candidate spot?"
Qin Yu grew silent. He began to ponder.
Qin Yu knew very well that if he were to take out a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, he would definitely be able to obtain the third chosen candidate spot. However, he currently only possessed two first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
One was the Fire Origin Spiritual Pearl and the other was the Purple Rain Dress.
Merely, this Fire Origin Spiritual Pearl was something that Qin Yu wanted to give to the future child between him and Li'er. As for the Purple Rain Dress, it was something that was meant for Li'er. Qin Yu did not wish to take either out.
Yet, other than these two items, Qin Yu possessed nothing that would absolutely defeat Zhou Xian.
"For third third chosen candidate spot, if I were to try my hardest, I would still have certainty in being able to obtain it." Qin Yu replied.
"Try your hardest? You mean, you're going to craft the gift yourself?" Jiang Lan asked with a smile.
Qin Yu slightly nodded. This was the advantage of being a grandmaster artifact craftsman. Even if he did not possess a treasure to gift, he could craft it himself. Merely… even the cleverest housewife cannot cook without rice!
Although his craftsmanship ability was amazing, even when using precious materials, Qin Yu was only able to craft High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts. Even if his state had reached its peak, he would at the very most be able to craft High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts comparable to second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
However, a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure did not possess enough certainty in being able to defeat Zhou Xian.
"Little Yu, standing behind that Zhou Xian is the Thunder Punishment City. The Thunder Punishment City is one of the Eight Great Sacred Lands of the Divine Realm. Although they possess only a single first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, they still possess many second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Especially… because the Thunder Punishment City possesses the authority to administer the lower realms and also control the passageway to leave the Divine Realm." Jiang Fan exclaimed. "This Thunder Punishment City, the treasures that they've managed to obtain through searching the various cosmic spaces of the lower realms ought to be the most among the Eight Great Sacred Lands."
The Thunder Punishment City was the most otherworldly among the Eight Great Sacred Lands of the Divine Realm.
In the Great War of the Divine Realm, only the Thunder Punishment City was not mixed into the battle. On top of that, behind the Thunder Punishment City was the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial. His status was exceedingly extraordinary.
The Thunder Punishment City controlled the power of the Punishment of Thunder and Lightning and also controlled the channels from the Divine Realm to the lower realms.
Qin Yu was stunned.
"No wonder." Qin Yu suddenly started laughing. "No wonder the other Sage Emperors gave the Northwest Sage Emperor that much face and supported Zhou Xian on the Sage Emperor's Palace's palace hall."
Hearing that, Jiang Lan merely smiled.
This matter was something that anyone with the slightest amount of intelligence would be able to guess. However, so what if one managed to guess it? After all, those people were all Sage Emperors. What they said, who would dare to refute it?
"Qin Yu, if you want to win the third chosen candidate spot, then the weapon that you've crafted must definitely be at the most apex of second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Only through that would you be able to beat Zhou Xian with certainty." Jiang Lan said to Qin Yu solemnly.
Qin Yu naturally also understood this in his heart.
In order to marry Jiang Li, Zhou Xian was willing to part with a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. However, he would definitely not be willing to part with a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Even if he was… the Thunder Punishment City would not be.
Thus, as long as his gift was the most apex of second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, he would be able to win.
"Little Yu, if you do not have any method, then I have a method!" Jiang Lan said with a smile.
"What method?" Qin Yu was delighted.
Jiang Lan said with a smile. "Within my mansion is an Ancient Ironwood Tree. This Ancient Ironwood Tree's age is not that much inferior to the age of the entire Divine Realm. It is ten quadrillion years old… One could easily craft Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts using its branches. It is also not hard to craft High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts using its trunk. And the most precious, the 'Tree Core' contains within it Grandmist Spiritual Energy. As long as you are skillful enough, it is possible to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure using it."
"Let's cut down this Ancient Ironwood Tree. Amongst the materials of the Divine Realm, there is no single material that is comparable to the Tree Core of the Ancient Ironwood Tree. Back then, the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan managed to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure using other precious materials; if you were to use the even more precious Tree Core of the Ancient Ironwood Tree to craft, then with your craftsmanship ability, I believe you would be able to create a new first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Crafting with the Ancient Ironwood Tree, you would definitely be able to obtain the third chosen candidate spot."
Qin Yu was stunned.
He stared blankly at Uncle Lan.
"What's wrong?" Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu with a smile.
"Uncle Lan?" Qin Yu felt a burst of ache in his heart. He had also heard the importance of the Ancient Ironwood Tree to Uncle Lan. He had obtained this Ancient Ironwood Tree the moment when he became a Godking.
The Ancient Ironwood Tree had been accompanying Uncle Lan the entire time.
Furthermore, when he was chatting with Li'er, Qin Yu also came to know that Uncle Lan had spent numerous years together with the Godking of Life Zuo Qiumei underneath the Ancient Ironwood Tree.
However, at this moment…
Uncle Lan, in order for Qin Yu to obtain the third chosen candidate spot, was actually willing to cut down the Ancient Ironwood Tree?
"Uncle Lan…" Qin Yu's eyes had turned slightly red.
It wasn't that Qin Yu didn't have a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure; both the Fire Origin Spiritual Pearl and the Purple Rain Dress were first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures! Merely, he was unwilling to part with them. However, Uncle Lan, for him, was willing to part with the Ancient Ironwood Tree, the item of memories of his lost lover!
"What's wrong? There's no need for you to mind about it. This Ancient Ironwood Tree is mine. It could also be considered as belonging to the Jiang Clan. After you craft the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, you would still end up giving it to the Jiang Clan in the end. You can just consider it as me using your hands to gift it to my big brother. Thus, you do not have to mind too much about it." Uncle Lan said with a smile.
Qin Yu knew very well that Uncle Lan had said these so that he would not have a sense of guilt.
However, the more Uncle Lan said it like that, the more difficult and painful it became for Qin Yu. Especially after seeing the smile on Uncle Lan's face…
"Uncle Lan, there's no need." Qin Yu took a deep breath.
"Foolish child, no matter what, I would not allow others to wreck the marriage between you and Li'er. You must definitely obtain this third chosen candidate spot. Well then, there's no need to throw a fit anymore." Uncle Lan seemed to be reprimanding a spoiled and pampered child.
Qin Yu shook his head. "I am not throwing a fit. Rather, after hearing you mention of the Ancient Ironwood Tree, I remembered a thing. I already have the absolute certainty that I would be able to win the third chosen candidate spot."
"Oh?" Uncle Lan was a bit surprised. "What thing?"
"Uncle Fu." Qin Yu suddenly shouted. As Qin Yu was Uncle Fu's master, Uncle Fu immediately felt Qin Yu's mind connection. In an instant, he appeared in the guest room.
Jiang Lan began to ponder. What was Qin Yu planning to have Uncle Fu do?
"Uncle Lan, follow me." Qin Yu turned around and said to Uncle Lan. Then, with but a thought.
Jiang Lan felt that the space was shifting. He was able to resist. However, he didn't… It was exactly as he imagined, after the surrounding scenery became clear, he had already arrived on the New Purple Mystic Star of the New Cosmos.
"The thing that I talked about is in here." Qin Yu pointed to a palace on top of the East Hazy Mountain.
"That is… the Bewitching God Temple?" Jiang Lan said in surprise.
"That's right." Qin Yu stepped into the Bewitching God Temple. After passing the front palace, they entered the courtyard. Jiang Lan was following Qin Yu. He also wanted to see what exactly was the thing that Qin Yu spoke of.
Uncle Fu had been following behind Qin Yu the entire time.
"Uncle Lan, do you know of this tree?" Qin Yu pointed to a thick and solid Red Tung Tree in the middle of the courtyard.
"This is… the Ancient Red Tung Tree?" Jiang Lan immediately recognized it.
"That's right. This is the Ancient Red Tung Tree. It is also the Divine Tree that is second only to the Ancient Ironwood Tree." Said Qin Yu with an extremely confident expression.
"Why is there an Ancient Red Tung Tree here?' Jiang Lan asked in surprise.
"Uncle Fu, it's better for you to explain." Qin Yu looked to Uncle Fu. Uncle Fu bowed respectfully. "Senior Jiang Lan, this Ancient Red Tung Tree is something that my old master received as payment from the Thunder Godking, that is, the Thunder Punishment City's Sage Emperor, when he sought for my old master to craft an offensive-type second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for him."
"Oh…" Jiang Lan slightly nodded. "Although this Ancient Red Tung Tree's Tree Core is relatively good, it's still a level below the Ancient Ironwood Tree's Tree Core. Even if a grandmaster artifact craftsman were to use it to craft, they would likely only be able to craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure out of it. Using a Divine Tree that could only craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure in exchange for an offensive second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure; this Zhou Huo was truly meticulous in his calculations."
Back then, Zhou Huo had no ways around it.
Although he possessed the materials, he still needed the skills of a craftsman. Without enough craftsmanship ability, the Ancient Red Tung Tree was merely an ornament.
"Qin Yu, the thing you mention is…" Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu.
"That's right, it's this Ancient Red Tung Tree." Qin Yu waved his sleeve. A blade-like spatial crack appeared in the space. The blade-like spatial crack slashed through the Ancient Red Tung Tree. The Ancient Red Tung Tree was cut apart and toppled over with a loud bang!

Within this New Cosmos, Qin Yu was unequalled. Even though the Ancient Red Tung Tree was extremely tough and durable, Qin Yu was still able to cut it apart with a single wave of his hand. However, had it been in the Divine Realm, then Qin Yu would likely have to spend a great deal of effort to cut it apart.
Jiang Lan looked at the Ancient Red Tung Tree that had fallen. He nodded and said. "The Tree Core of this Ancient Red Tung Tree could indeed be considered an utmost supreme top quality crafting material. However, using only this Tree Core would only allow one to craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Little Yu, do you have the certainty that you'll be able to win with this second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?" As he said that, Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu slightly smiled. "Uncle Lan, I got this. You do not have to worry."
Qin Yu did not have absolute confidence. He knew very well that with his artifact craftsmanship ability… if his state were extremely at its peak, then he would indeed be able to craft a peak second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure using this Ancient Red Tung Tree.
However, one's state during crafting was very hard to control.
A single little error was capable of causing an item to drop in rank.
"Little Yu, do not try to deceive me." Jiang Lan slightly smiled. "I have also meticulously studied artifact crafting before. My understanding of it is inferior to yours… but look at the Jiang Lan Realm, you ought to be able to tell my artifact crafting ability."
Qin Yu was stunned.
Jiang Lan continued. "I know very well that this Ancient Red Tung Tree is something birthed by the world. A Divine Tree born by the world, its Tree Core does indeed contain within it Grandmist Spiritual Energy. However, with the amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy within the Tree Core of the Ancient Red Tung Tree, it would only be enough for one to craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The most important aspect one needed in order to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure is… Grandmist Spiritual Energy! Little Yu, say, was what I said correct?"
Qin Yu smiled bitterly. He could only nod honestly.
Qin Yu knew that he couldn't deceive Uncle Lan! Uncle Lan was also very proficient in the matter of artifact crafting.
Jiang Lan continued. "When the Craftsman God Chenhou Yuan crafted the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for the Asura Godking, he had melted down a total of three second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures and six third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures in order to obtain enough Grandmist Spiritual Energy. Using this Grandmist Spiritual Energy, a large number of precious materials, and Craftsman God Chehou Yuan's peak craftsmanship ability, only then did he manage to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure."
Qin Yu was carefully listening.
Although Qin Yu knew that the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had crafted a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, he did not know about the detailed course of events.
"The Grandmist Spiritual Energy is an extremely miraculous energy of the world. It by itself does not possess a lot of attack power. However, once it is assimilated into weapons, it will allow a weapon to contain spiritual nature and come to possess an even more remarkable ability." Jiang Lan exclaimed.
"Even if your craftsmanship ability is sufficient to create a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, you would still require a sufficient amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy. I have quite many relatively good crafting materials at my place. I reckon that you also have some here, right? If we were to add those to the Ancient Red Tung Tree's Tree Core… I reckon the materials would not be much inferior to the materials that the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had used to craft his first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. And now, the only thing that is lacking is the Grandmist Spiritual Energy. The amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy the Ancient Red Tung Tree contains is truly insufficient."
Qin Yu nodded.
He also knew very well in his heart that the Tree Core of the Ancient Red Tung Tree was completely incomparable with the Tree Core of the Ancient Ironwood Tree. Regardless of whether it was the quality of the material, or the amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy that it contained, there existed a significant gap between them.
"Little Yu, rest assured. I know… You likely wouldn't be able to find any Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Even if you have one, it should only be that Jade Spring Gourd. Isn't that right?" Jiang Lan said with a smile.
Qin Yu smiled helplessly.
He does possess a couple Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. For example, there was the Refining Flame Wristband. However, the Refining Flame Wristband was extremely important in the process of artifact crafting. How could Qin Yu be willing to melt it down?
There was also the God Sealing Pagoda. However, the God Sealing Pagoda was the main aspect to controlling Qiuzhong Fu, Black Dragon Tan Jiu and various other Heavenly Deities.
As for the ones he held no use for initially, he had already given them to Hou Fei and Hei Yu. The only one that he had no use for right now was the Jade Spring Gourd bestowed to him by the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.
As for the Fire Origin Spiritual Pearl and the Purple Rain Dress, they were two first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Unless Qin Yu's brain had issues, there would be no way for him to destroy two first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
Seeing Qin Yu's expression, Jiang Lan naturally understood.
"Little Yu, have you seen it? That Zhou Xian, his Nine Phoenix Crown, all nine of those spiritual pearls were third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. That's the fact. Merely by those nine third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures' Grandmist Spiritual Energy, if they were to be added on top of the Grandmist Spiritual Energy of the Ancient Red Tung Tree's Tree Core, it would already be enough." Jiang Lan said with a smile.
Qin Yu said helplessly. "Uncle Lan, why did you mention the Nine Phoenix Crown? Could it be, that you want to melt down the Nine Phoenix Crown?"
Jiang Lan started laughing. "I did not said that for with that intention. I merely want you to know that… among Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, the overwhelming majority of them are ornamental Grandmist Spiritual Treasures! As for real offensive Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, they are extremely rare. That was also the reason why Zhou Xian was able to take out nine Grandmist Spiritual Treasures for ornamental purposes."
Qin Yu nodded.
Even if it were only ornamental Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, Qin Yu still didn't possess any.
"I know that you have cultivated for too short of a time. Thus, you naturally would not be able to obtain many Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, your Uncle Lan I…." Uncle Lan displayed a smile on his face.
"I have existed since the time when the Divine Realm was formed. I have also been a Godking for an extremely long period of time. Just think about it; I was able to obtain even the Ancient Ironwood Tree, how many useless Grandmist Spiritual Treasures do you think I would have?" Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu while smiling.
Qin Yu came to an complete understanding now.
What Uncle Lan meant was, he'd give Qin Yu Grandmist Spiritual Treasures to melt down.
"You do not have to mind about it too much. I truly possess quite a lot of Grandmist Spiritual Treasures that are of no use and could only be taken out to play with. How about this, I'll take out six third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures and a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for you to melt down." Jiang Lan's words were spoken in a tone of not allowing for rejection.
Qin Yu looked at Uncle Lan. In the end, he nodded.
"Exactly how much do I owe Uncle Lan?" Qin Yu was unable to calculate that anymore. Back in the Mortal Realm, Uncle Lan had saved his life several times already.
And after he arrived in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, the exact number of times that Uncle Lan had assisted him in the shadows was something that Qin Yu was unable to imagine.
All in all…
In Qin Yu's heart, Uncle Lan possessed a status not inferior to his own father.
"Come, let's return to the Wood Mansion. Those insignificant and relatively useless Grandmist Spiritual Treasures of mine, I keep the majority of them within the Wood Mansion's storehouse." Jiang Lan said to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu nodded.
Inside the Wood Mansion.
Right after the banquet at the Sage Emperor's Palace ended, Jiang Lan had went to Qin Yu's place. As for Jiang Yan, she had went to the Wood Mansion. As the main character of the groom search, Jiang Li had only displayed herself during the first occasion. She was not present in the other two judgements.
Inside the secluded courtyard deep within the Wood Mansion. The sisters Jiang Li and Jiang Yan were sitting together underneath the Ancient Ironwood Tree.
"Lil sister, you said that Big Brother Qin Yu lost?" Jiang Li immediately stood up.
Jiang Yan immediately said. "Big sister, you've heard about all the course of events earlier. This matter cannot be blamed upon Big Brother Qin Yu. From the way I see it, that Northwest Sage Emperor had clearly did something in the shadows. Otherwise, how could Zhou Xian possibly win?"
"I know." Jiang Li had a bitter smile on her face. "Merely, I fear for Big Brother Qin Yu's current frame of mind. I remember back in the Mortal Realm, what Big Brother Qin Yu hatred the most was being insulted by others. If someone were to insult him, he would fight back right away and might even end up battling against the other person."
Jiang Li had been with Qin Yu for too short of a time. She didn't know that in the years leading from the Mortal Realm to the Divine Realm, Qin Yu was already no longer easily angered like how he was back in the Mortal Realm.
"Lil sister, was mother truly that prejudiced and in favor of Zhou Xian during the banquet?" Jiang Li asked. Her worried expression was already seen from her brows.
Jiang Yan lightly nodded.
Chunyu Rou was extremely caring for the two sisters. However, on this matter, she had caused Jiang Li to ache in her heart.
"I know of mother and aunt's relationship. But…" Jiang Li wanted to say something. However, she ended up not saying it in the end.
"This situation would definitely be hard for Big Brother Qin Yu. The reason he had fought and competed through the various competitions was all so that things would not be difficult for me. That Purple Mystic Mansion…" Tears were flickering in Jiang Li's eyes.
Jiang Yan who had personally experienced the Purple Mystic Mansion had described everything within the Purple Mystic Mansion to her sister.
Although others might not know about it, but Jiang Li knew very well that the various arrangements within the Purple Mystic Mansion contained many stories of their past.
She was able to feel Qin Yu's diligence and attentiveness from every portion of it. "They said that Big Brother Qin Yu was not diligent and attentive?" Jiang Li also felt anger within her heart.
Jiang Li's gaze have suddenly become firm with resolution. "Lil Sister, let's go to the Floating Cloud Mansion."
Jiang Yan was shocked jumping.
"Big sister, what are you planning to do?" Jiang Yan promptly tried to stop her. Oh Heavens, Jiang Li was the main character within the groom search. If others were to discover at such a time that Jiang Li had gone to the Floating Cloud Mansion, then who knows what sort of scandal would come about from this.
Jiang Li said. "We're going to the Floating Cloud Mansion!"
"Big sister." Jiang Yan pulled Jiang Li.
Jiang Li lightly smiled. "Although I love mother, she still has you, she still has our older and younger brothers. Even without me… there would not be any significant effect to them."
"However, Big Brother Qin Yu, he had come all the way here from the Mortal Realm. Oh how many life and death crisis has he experienced through this journey? In all these years, what have I been doing? I have merely been hiding within the Wood Mansion. I have been hiding the entire time."
Jiang Li had a bitter smile on her face. "It is Brother Qin Yu who shouldered all the winds and rains. I have merely been waiting. And now, in order to not make things difficult for me, he has been trying his best and put forth everything. His first gift was a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. His second gift, that Purple Mystic Mansion… all of this, I don't understand, how could those Godkings not see all of this? How could Big Brother Qin Yu's diligence and attentiveness possibly be fake?"
"I do not wish to continue like this. I only wish to also do something for Big Brother Qin Yu." Jiang Li looked at her sister with a smile on her face.
Jiang Yan was dumbstruck.
Was this still the gentle girl who listened to her parents for everything?
Never had Jiang Yan seen her older sister this determined before.
"If Big Brother QIn Yu were to stop his training and cultivation, then he would've already be able to be with his father and brothers in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, he left the responsibility of taking care of his father to his brothers. Yet he, he bears upon the pain of leaving his father, brothers and relatives and came to the unfamiliar Divine Realm. All of his struggles, they were all for me." Tears were flickering within Jiang Li's eyes. "For Big Brother Qin Yu to be able to do all this, how could I possibly not be able to do that too? Furthermore, it's not like father and mother would lack a single daughter like me among their children."
Jiang Yan slowly loosened her grip.
She understood her older sister.
Jiang Li smiled to Jiang Yan. She then proceeded to walk toward the entrance of the courtyard.
Qin Yu and Jiang Lan had already returned to the Wood Mansion. The two of them were following the corridors and proceeding toward the inside of the Wood Mansion. However, at the corridors, Qin Yu was pleasantly surprised to encounter Jiang Li.
"Li'er?" Qin Yu was full of joy.
All of his worries, all of his hardships, they all turned to joy and happiness when he saw Li'er.
Jiang Li was shocked to see Qin Yu. After some time, she rushed over into Qin Yu's bosom. She tightly hugged him. Tears started to roll down her eyes.
"Li'er, what,what's wrong?" Qin Yu felt completely confused. He looked to Jiang Lan beside him. Jiang Lan was also completely confused.
Qin Yu started to comfort Jiang Li.
Jiang Li who was in Qin Yu's bosom suddenly raised her head and looked to him. She said a series of words that shocked Qin Yu. "Big Brother Qin Yu, can we elope now? You don't have to worry anymore. You don't have to be vexed and distressed over those complicated things anymore."
"Li'er, don't let your imagination run wild." Qin Yu immediately understood what Jiang Li was thinking and was deeply moved.
Worries and hardships could not be considered as anything.
As long as Li'er understood all of this, Qin Yu would already be blessed with happiness.
"You merely need to sit still and wait. In another ten years, after I obtain the third chosen candidate spot… at that moment, you will only have to wait to be married to me." Qin Yu said with a smile.
Jiang Li looked at Qin Yu as if she were in a daze.
She was able to tell that there was not the slightest amount of worry or hardship within Qin Yu's eyes. All that contained within them were only happiness and his cherish toward her.
"Big Brother Qin Yu, I…"
"It's okay." Qin Yu smiled. His gaze was fixed upon Jiang Li. "Don't give up halfway, okay? I believe that you will be able to become my bride happily."
Jiang Li wanted to say something. Yet, she didn't manage to say those words out. At this moment, she only felt that she had been completely engulfed by happiness and emotions.
Afterwards, Qin Yu encountered Jiang Yan. They chatted for a very long time. Only then did Jiang Li finally let go of the matter that gnaws at her mind. After that, Qin Yu, Jiang Li, Jiang Yan and Jiang Lan proceeded to walk toward the Wood Mansion's storehouse.
"I've never been to the storehouse before. What sort of treasures will there be in there?" Jiang Yan was so excited that her eyes were shining.
As for Jiang Li, she merely followed Qin Yu. In her heart, everything was already good enough as long as she followed Qin Yu.
"This storehouse is merely a simple use of the spatial laws. Come, follow me." Jiang Lan walked to the entrance of a underground tunnel. The underground tunnel's gates opened by itself.
Qin Yu and them followed Jiang Lan and walked into the storehouse.
