"Chi chi~~~" Zuo Qiulin immediately began to emit endless amount of black mist from the surface of her body. Wherever that black mist passed, the countless number of flowers, plants and trees started to frantically shine with a dazzling green light. The green light and the black mist were melting away one another unceasingly. The flowers, plants and trees that got close to Zuo Qiulin all began to wither.
However, the flowers, plants and trees that got closer to Jiang Li took a very interesting turn. When those enormous creeper branches grew closer to Jiang Li, they actually became controlled by Jiang Li. They turned around and blocked the countless number of flowers, plants and trees that continued to rush toward her.
As for Qin Yu, he pointed with one hand.
In an instant, the places where his finger waved past, countless White Pure Flames surged forth. In an instant, before him was an ocean of White Pure Flames. Those flowers, plants, trees and branches which were shining with green light had all completely been burned to ashes.
"You have some tricks up your sleeves." That gentle voice sounded once more.
At the same time, those flowers, plants and trees which were frantically rushing toward them, suddenly started to pull back. Qin Yu and them felt that the world had became unclouded in an instant. And at this moment, there stood an old man in the airspace above the island.
Long green hair and long green eyebrows.
His green eyebrows were so long that they were hanging downward. This pair of long green eyebrows had caught Qin Yu's attention.
His tiny eyes were below those eyebrows. They appeared extremely unremarkable. This hidden expert of the Eastern Sea seemed to be very interesting. Small eyes, and the corner of his mouth seemed to always have a smiling expression. His appearance seemed like a person that was easy to get close to.
"I truly never expected for Zuo Qiulin to be willing to lower your face and find helpers. On top of that, you've found two juniors to help you." This Eastern Sea's hidden expert squinted his tiny eyes. HIs gaze that leaked out from his little eyes took a glance at Qin Yu and Jiang Li. It was then fixed upon Zuo Qiulin. "Zuo Qiulin, go ahead, tell me, did you come here this time for that promise that we made back then?"
"Obviously." Zuo Qiulin's hoarse voice contained anger within it. "Otherwise, why would I bother to come to your place? Old Ghost, this youth beside me is my helper. According to the agreement that we had back then, as long as my helper is capable of defeating you, the promise that we made back then shall be considered completed."
The long green-browed old man squinted his eyes and looked at Qin Yu. He smiled and said. "I will naturally keep my promise. As long as you can defeat me, you can do whatever you wish to do. Boy, you are that Qin Yu?”
"So Senior already knows who I am. May I know who Senior is?" Qin Yu said with a smile.
Qin Yu did not find it strange at all that he was known. Last time… when the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure Water Splitter appeared in the Divine Realm and gave birth to the change in the sky, various Godkings had gathered above the Eastern Sea, and in the end, Qin Yu had defeated two Godkings.
As the actions of that battle were extremely great, it was likely that there weren't many Godkings in the Divine Realm who didn't know about it. Thus, it was not strange at all for them to know Qin Yu.
"Who am I? This old man here is called 'Mu Yu.'" This long green eyebrowed old man said with a smile while squinting his eyes.
[TL: Mu Yu → Wooden Fish]
Qin Yu was stunned. Jiang Li beside him was also a bit startled.
"Could it be that the same 'Wooden Fish' that the experts of the Dual Domain Island's Buddhist Domain would frequently tap?" Qin Yu promptly asked.
[TL: Buddhist monks tap on wooden fish as they recite buddhist chants.]
This hidden expert of the Eastern Sea squinted his eyes and nodded cheerfully. "Precisely."
"Mu Yu, surnamed Mu and also proficient in the Life Energy?" Qin Yu began to think. "Could this old man called Mu Yu be related to the Mu Clan of the Northeastern Region's Forest Ocean City? Furthermore, this old man also possesses long green hair."
Qin Yu began to guess.
"Boy, don't let your imaginations run wild. If you want to fight, then let's do it quickly as this old man has a lot of things to do. I do not have the time to waste on you." The Eastern Sea's hidden expert Mu Yu said.
Qin Yu said courteously. "In that case, where does Senior think we should fight?"
"Where? Let's just do it here." The long green brows old man said extremely straightforwardly. "Boy Qin Yu, are you ready? If you are, then this old man will be attacking now."
Qin Yu did not dare to lower his guard against this long green eyebrowed old man. After all, this old man had defeated even the Godking of Death Zuo Qiulin before.
Qin Yu's body immediately turned into two.
A white gowned Qin Yu and a cyan gowned Qin Yu.
"I already knew that you had a clone. During that battle above the Eastern Sea, you used your clone to defeat that Zhou Tong. Today, allow this old man to experience it too." Said the long green eyebrowed old man with a smile. At the same time, his long green hair started to suddenly grow longer.
Like a waterfall, the long green hair instantly covered the entire heaven and earth. Countless strands of long green hair started to fly towards Qin Yu to bind him. Each and every single strand of hair was extremely sharp. Even the Divine Realm's space started to vibrate. It was if the space could be pierced through by the long green hair at any moment.
"Truly powerful indeed." Qin Yu held the Divine Spear Waning Snow in his hand. He thrust it forward and pierced a hole in the world created by the long green hair. Qin Yu's true body immediately fled out. As for his clone, the cyan gowned Qin Yu, it remained standing there without moving.
As for the hole created by the Divine Spear Waning Snow, it had closed up in a blink of an eye.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu's body started to emit an endless amount of Coldmist Air. The Coldmist Air was extremely cold. After being covered by the Coldmist Air, the surface of the long green hair seemed to be covered by a layer of cold frost and had become motionless.
The body muscles of the cyan gowned Qin Yu suddenly jolted. Spatial ripples which could be seen with the naked eye suddenly appeared in the surroundings. The spatial ripples started to spread in all directions. The long green hair that was already frozen, upon being touched by the spatial ripples, instantly turned into powder.
The long hair of the green eyebrowed old man returned to normal. His pair of small eyes spun around. He smiled and said. "Coldmist Domain. Your clone actually knows the Jade Ripple Lake's Coldmist Domain. Truly extraordinary… For my Life Domain to be broken apart by the Coldmist Domain, it could not be considered to be a humiliation. It would seem that this old man would have to use his expertise."
The green eyebrowed old man opened his mouth.
Four dots of green light grew bigger along the wind. In an instant, they turned into four plants similar to the 'Man-eating Flowers' that Qin Yu had seen in the Mortal Realm. These four plants were floating in the surroundings of the old man.
"Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?" Qin Yu was able to sense the aura of Grandmist Spiritual Treasures from those four plants. It would appear that these four plants were no ordinary plants.
The branches and tendrils of the four plants suddenly grew longer. In an instant, it was like a several hundred meter long enormous python flying toward the cyan gowned Qin Yu to bind him. However, the cyan gowned Qin Yu was still standing there motionlessly.
"Buzz~~" The Coldmist Air was once again emitted outward. However, no matter how hard the Coldmist Air attacked them, those branches and tendrils were actually not affected in the slightest. In an instant, they bound the cyan gowned Qin Yu.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu was created through a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Its entire body was incomparably tough. Thus, it would naturally not fear these branches. However, the four plants actually possessed several tens of branches and tendrils. In an instant, they covered the cyan gowned Qin Yu with layer upon layer. When watching the cyan gowned Qin Yu from the outside, he now appeared like a lotus leaf wrapped glutinous rice dumpling.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu suddenly began to exert strength. The several tens of tree branches that had covered him suddenly grew tighter.
"What powerful branches and tendrils. Even my clone was unable to break them apart." Qin Yu exclaimed in admiration. At this moment, Qin Yu's true body was actually holding the Divine Spear Waning Snow and looking at the green eyebrowed old man with a smile on his face.
Qin Yu had a feeling that this green eyebrowed old man had yet to use his expertise.
This battle was only one that he needed to defeat his opponent and not one where he need to kill his opponent. Thus, Qin Yu did not frantically attack the old man but was instead only countering his every move. What Qin Yu wished to do was to make his opponent accept defeat by himself.
"Break it apart? In all these years, I've yet to met anyone capable of breaking apart these four treasures of mine after they got completely bound by them. All of those Godkings had escaped through using teleportation." The green eyebrowed old man was extremely confident.
Suddenly, one of the branch that wrapped around the cyan gowned Qin Yu broke apart. "Pop!" Another branch cracked open. The several tens of branches and tendrils were wrapped around to the limit of their tightness. Seeing the appearance of those branches slowly breaking apart, one could clearly imagine the strength of the cyan gowned Qin Yu that was wrapped by those branches and tendrils.
The green eyebrowed old man displayed a shocked expression. "What powerful strength."
Qin Yu started to smile.
How could the strength of his clone that was formed through first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure possibly be weak? In terms of only strength, it was likely that there would not be anyone in the Divine Realm who was capable of matching Qin Yu's clone.
"However, it's useless. No one can break it apart." The green eyebrowed old man was extremely confident. Rays of green light began to flow through the broken branches. Those broken branches actually started to grow back and recover.
The green eyebrowed old man looked at Qin Yu's true body and mocked. "Boy Qin Yu, could it be that you didn't know… that the most important characteristic of Life Energy is its ability to grow and multiply without end? Even though they're broken, they can still grow back."
Every now and then, one of the several tens of branches and tendrils that had tightened to their limit to bind the cyan gowned Qin Yu would break apart. However, in a blink of an eye, they would be restored. If this continued on… then the cyan gowned Qin Yu would be incapable of breaking apart the tendrils and branches no matter what he do.
"This clone of yours is pretty amazing. It has been completely enveloped by my four treasures but is actually not injured in the slightest." The green eyebrowed old man exclaimed in admiration.
The white gowned Qin Yu looked at the green eyebrowed old man.
"Senior Mu Yu, let's not waste time anymore. It's impossible for you to handle me with just that. Just show me your true abilities." Qin Yu waved the spear in his hand. His aura suddenly soared.
The green eyebrowed old man looked to Qin Yu. A light flashed through his little eyes.
"Haha, this old man shall play with you." A dark black colored whip appeared in this green eyebrowed old man's hand. There were also countless barbs on this long whip.
"Qin Yu, be careful. This long whip is extremely strange. I have fought against this green eyebrowed old man many times and was seriously injured by this long whip every single time." Said Zuo Qiulin to Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission with 'good intentions.'
Qin Yu smiled indifferently. He looked to this dark black colored whip.
The green eyebrowed old man waved his right hand. Like a water dragon that overturned the river, the long whip immediately engulfed toward Qin Yu. The pair of silver gloves appeared on Qin Yu's hands. Like a mirage, his left hand grabbed a section of this dark black whip with lightning speed.
"Oh?" The green eyebrowed old man exclaimed in shock. After that, he began to smile.
Qin Yu suddenly felt that the whip in his left hand was actually wriggling. A painful stinging sensation was transmitted from his palm. Qin Yu's Spatial Energy was able to clearly discover what was currently occurring.
It turned out that those tiny little green barbs on the whip had actually began to grow. Like knives, they stabbed into Qin Yu's palm. Fortunately Qin Yu's gloves were both second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Only because of that did he manage to withstand the barbs.
"Eh, as expected of the new Craftsman God." The green eyebrowed old man took a surprised glance at Qin Yu's gloves.
That long whip started to suddenly tremble like a struggling python. Although Qin Yu possessed quite a bit of strength, he began to feel that he was about to become unable to resist it anymore. At the same time, those densely packed green barbs actually separated themselves from the dark black whip.
The countless and densely packed barbs started to thrust toward Qin Yu himself.
"Senior Mu Yu, look carefully."
Qin Yu suddenly started to laugh. His right hand was holding the Divine Spear Waning Snow. Like a wild dragon, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was swept toward the sky and left behind a great number of spear silhouettes in the sky and a trace of dark and yellow color.
As for the countless barbs, they were all knocked flying by the spear.
That green eyebrowed old man was dumbstruck. And at this moment, Qin Yu's Divine Spear Waning Snow had already wrapped the dark black whip around it. The Dark and Yellow Energy on the surface of the Divine Spear Waning Snow started to move, it caused that dark black whip to tremble. It seemed that the whip was about to break apart at any moment.
"Stop. I concede. Quickly, stop."
Shouted the green eyebrowed old man loudly.
Qin Yu slightly smiled and then retrieved his Divine Spear Waning Snow. He held the spear in his hand and stood to the side. As for Jiang Li and Zuo Qiulin, they had flown over to Qin Yu's side. No matter how cold and indifferent Zuo Qiulin was, she still displayed a smile at this moment. "Old Ghost, You admitted defeat?"
The green eyebrowed old man carefully looked to his whip. He gulped and looked at Qin Yu's spear with a slightly terrified expression. He then looked at Qin Yu. "Boy Qin Yu, this whip of mine is a top-notch treasure among second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Furthermore, it's toughness is renowned throughout the Divine Realm. It would be difficult for even the Clan Protection Spiritual Treasures of Sage Emperors to break it apart. Yet that spear of yours…"
The green eyebrowed old man knew extremely well. His whip was connected to him. Earlier, that whip of his was about to break. The green eyebrowed old man knew that this was definitely what had happened earlier. This was the reason why he loudly admitted his defeat earlier.
"This spear is called Waning Snow." Qin Yu did not bother to explain much.
"Mn, not bad." The green eyebrowed old man was thankful for Qin Yu being lenient toward him. He displayed a smile and then looked to the cyan gowned Qin Yu that was still wrapped around by the branches and tendrils. "However, that clone of yours is still bound by me. It would seem that we are about the same strength."
"Bound?" Qin Yu slightly smiled.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu instantly turned into Coldmist Air. Those branches and tendrils immediately loosened. Those Coldmist Air arrived beside Qin Yu and once again condensed into the cyan gowned Qin Yu.
"Y-your clone, th-this…" The green eyebrowed old man was displaying an expression as if he had seen a ghost. He had become completely speechless.
