The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial's ice-cold and ruthless silver eyes glanced at the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial. "Martial Younger Brother, you ought to also know how much importance our master placed upon this Exalted Celestial Mountain which descends once every six quadrillion years. I wish that you would not cause master to be unhappy."
"Yes, Eldest Martial Brother, I understand." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said repeatedly.
The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial had his back facing the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial. He said indifferently. "It's good that you understand. Back then, master had selected you and you receive the fortune to become an Exalted Celestial. You ought to have the enlightenment of an Exalted Celestial… let go of the death of those two sons of yours. As far as I know in these countless number of years, when you and Third Martial Younger Brother hid your identities and traveled the lower realms, you've both left behind quite a nuber of descendents. The death of one or two children do not amount to much."
"It's exactly like Eldest Martial Brother says." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial promptly replied.
Under normal circumstances, the Three Great Exalted Celestials rarely stayed in the Divine Realm. Generally, they would be hiding their identities in the countless amount of cosmic spaces of the lower realms and experiences various new lives. Thus, they would naturally leave behind descendents.
"You'd best behave yourself." After the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial said that, he disappeared before the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial continued to bow respectfully. Only after the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial left did he straighten his waist and sigh lowly. "It's true that I have many sons. However, this time around, the one who died is my most favorited Yan'er."
When Zhou Tong died, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's heart was barely moved. He had merely felt that his dignity was infringed upon and became a bit angry.
However, when Zhou Wulian died, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial felt as if his vision had turned dark. He had nearly gone mad.
"Revenge?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial began to frown. The red mark in the center of his eyebrows began to tremble.
He truly really wished to avenge his son. However, once he remembered what the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial said… 'If you were to attack Qin Yu now… then you would be violating the rules. In that case, I can only implement the punishment of the Heavens and kill you on behalf of master!' the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial began to shiver. He immediately gave up this idea of revenge.
"In master's eyes, perhaps Third Martial Younger Brother and I are merely tools. I reckon only the Eldest Martial Brother is considered to be a true disciple by master." Once the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial thought of his 'master,' his heart began to grow cold.
His master was so powerful that his strength had already reached a frightening level.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was certain that if his master wished to kill him, he would likely be able to do that with a single glance. The two of them were simply not of the same category at all… Furthermore, the only reason why he managed to become an Exalted Celestial was because he was lucky enough to be selected by and bestowed with the spatial laws and temporal laws by his master. Only because of that was he able to fortunately become an Exalted Celestial in one go.
To be able to bestow meant that he would also be able to deprive!
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial understood that his master's powerf was unparalleled.
"Master allowed Eldest Martial Brother to take care of everything. It was so much that in the countless years, the number of times master had called for me is something that can even be counted with a single hand. Yet, what about Eldest Martial Brother?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial felt sad in his heart.
The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was someone who could go and see their master whenever he wished.
Yet the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, in the twelve quadrillion years, he had only seen his master a couple times. Furthermore, it was also only because of something major. Furthermore, without his master's permission, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial would not know to where to find his master at all.
The difference between their status could be seen with a single glance.
Furthermore, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial possessed the privilege to 'erase' other Exalted Celestials. Thus, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was the one who was given the greatest authority in the entire universe. This was also something their master had personally said. Ever since the day when his master announced the privilege that the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial possessed, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial no longer dared to act disrespectful toward the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial.
"However, I cannot not avenge Yan'er's death. I merely need to endure… After the New Exalted Celestial is born, I'll kill that Qin Yu!" The seed of hatred was firmly placed in the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's heart. It had also started to germinate.
Golden light illuminated everything. The sound of trembling continued to echo through the heaven and earth. The countless number of people in the entire Divine Realm all raised their head to look toward the sky. Above the endless amount of red clouds was a floating mountain descending with a very slow speed.
This mountain was extremely enormous.
The base of the mountain was millions of miles long. Such an enormous floating mountain, none of the Eight Great Sacred Lands of the Divine Realm was comparable to its size.
The floating mountain with a circumference of millions of miles was slowly descending from the sky. The sky of the entire Divine Realm was covered with red clouds. This enormous mountain which was originally on top of the red clouds was slowly descending. With its height and the slowness of its descent, this mountain was likely going to need several days to completely descend past the red clouds.
The slow descent of an enormous mountain like this was a scene that caused people's hearts to tremble.
Within the vast seas of the Eastern Sea. Suddenly, a passageway appeared on the fluctuating sea surface. The sea water separated themselves. A figure walked out from the passageway. It was a scarlet haired robust man.
He raised his head and looked at the sky.
"Exalted Celestial Mountain, haha, it's actually the Exalted Celestial Mountain. However, compared to last time, this time's Exalted Celestial Mountain's color has changed. The Exalted Celestial Mountain that was completely blue in color had actually turned completely green in color. The boundless blue clouds have also turned into boundless red clouds! Red, I like that… It would seem that there's a promising hope of success for me this time."
The hidden Godkings who had gone hidden since six quadrillion years ago to train themselves would once again reappear now that the Exalted Celestial Mountain has descended.
To be able to reach the Godking level of cultivation, practically all of them were looking forward to the ultimate status they could reach. Without that sort of longing, without the goal of reaching the pinnacle, it was extremely difficult for them to be able to reach a cultivation level of Godking.
When the Exalted Celestial Mountain descended last time, none of the Eight Great Sage Emperors managed to obtain the status of Exalted Celestial. In the end, the unremarkable Unfettered Godking managed to achieve victory. The Unfettered Godking could not be considered as being a powerful Godking. He only managed to became an Exalted Celestial in one go through the help of the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial near the end of the battle.
Because of the birth of the Unfettered Exalted Celestial, this had caused many more Godkings to be filled with anticipation this time around!
"The descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain does not signify that whoever it is that's more powerful would become an Exalted Celestial. If that was the case, why would there even be a fight over it? The Unfettered Godking was capable of becoming an Exalted Celestial, I perhaps might also be able to." A figure flew out from a barren hill of the Divine Realm. Immediately after, it disappeared with a teleportation.
Practically all Godkings were tempted. The descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain meant that all of them would have a chance of becoming an Exalted Celestial. Admittedly, strength was important. However, strength did not signify everything.
In the sky above the Asura Sea. Four people were currently standing in the air. One person was standing in the front and three people behind.
The person standing in the front with his hands behind his back was precisely the Asura Godking Luo Fan clothed in white. Luo Fan had an indifferent smile on his face. Merely, his gaze was cast on the Exalted Celestial Mountain in the distance.
The three people standing behind Luo Fan, one was a silver gowned man, one was a gray gowned man and the last one was an ice-cold beautiful woman. These three were precisely the other three Godkings of the Asura Sea… Godking An Xun, Godking Sun Lian (also known as the Heaven Pacifying Godking) and Godking Liu Lian.
"Everyone, although I am determined to win the Exalted Celestial position this time around, but Little An, Sun Lian and Little Lian, you all also possess the hope to become an Exalted Celestial. There is no need for you all to assist me." Sun Fan said indifferently.
When the Exalted Celestial Mountain descended.
The former allies and friends… were all jokes at this moment. Not many people were trustworthy at this moment. That was because practically all Godkings wished to become an Exalted Celestial. Even if one wanted to find allies, one must open one's eyes wide. Otherwise, one might be stabbed in the back by others.
The number of Godkings that had died from the Exalted Celestial Mountain six quadrillion years ago was truly too great.
"Big brother, there's no need for say anymore." An Xun still had a cold and indifferent expression. "No one can stop you from becoming an Exalted Celestial this time around."
"That's right, big brother." Liu Lian also nodded and said.
That gray clothed Sun Lian also nodded.
Luo Fan's eyes shined. He nodded and said. "Good. I shall not speak any words of thanks. Little An, Little Lian, Sun Lian, when the Exalted Celestial Mountain stops descending, we shall go over there"
"Yes, big brother."
An Xun, Sun Lian and Liu Lian all nodded. The charisma of the Asura Godking was truly great.
Inside the Divine Realm's Foggy Marsh.
The Fog City that was destroyed by the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was once again constructed. A city that was practically exactly the same as the one before was located here.
To Qin Yu, constructing a city was indeed extremely easy.
Above the city walls of the Fog City. Qin Yu and Jiang Li were standing above the city walls while holding each other's hands. They were enjoying the gentle breeze.
"Qin Yu, the current Fog City's status could be said to be to be extremely firm. Now that the Exalted Celestial Mountain has also ascended, I shall be taking my leave. The status of Exalted Celestial is extremely attractive to me." Zuo Qiulin's hoarse voice sounded.
Qin Yu and Jiang Li both looked over to Zuo Qiulin.
Qin Yu smiled and said. "Senior Zuo Qiulin, feel free to go. This time, there are truly many Godkings who have gone toward the Exalted Celestial Mountain." Qin Yu knew extremely well of what was happening in the Divine Realm with his New Cosmos's Spatial Energy.
Zuo Qiulin felt relaxed in her heart.
Although she did not fear Qin Yu, she had received Qin Yu's first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. If she were to leave without Qin Yu's agreement, then she would feel bad in her heart.
"In that case, farewell." Zuo Qiulin did not bother to say words of thanks. She merely nodded, flew outward and then teleported away before Qin Yu and Jiang Li.
