When she heard this question, the Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun raised her eyebrows. She actually had a rare smile on her face. With a smile as she looked to Qin Yu, she said. "Qin Yu, if you truly want to know the answer to that, then I'll tell you if you were to help me obtain the All People Seal."
Hearing that, Qin Yu wanted to rain curses on this Blood Sea Queen.
It was merely a simple question. Yet, this Blood Sea Queen was acting all secretive.
Qin Yu lightly smiled. "Blood Sea Queen, consider it that I haven't asked."
"Uncle Lan, let's return." After that, Qin Yu turned around and said to Jiang Lan beside him. Jiang Lan slightly nodded and the two of them turned into two rays of light and flew toward Fog City in the distance.
As the Blood Sea Queen saw the figures of Qin Yu and Jiang Lan disappear into the vaguely visible Fog City in the distance, she lightly laughed twice.
Immediately after, the Blood Sea Queen's figure moved and disappeared from the dense fogs.
Countless bolts of arm width lightnings were running through the heaven and earth. In the center of all these lightning bolts was a floating city… Thunder Punishment City.
The Thunder Punishment City remained the same as it was billions of years ago. Merely, of the four Godkings of the Thunder Punishment City, three of them had died. Only the Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Huo remained.
Thunder Punishment City. Inside that small and secluded courtyard manor the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial lived.
Nervously, Zhou Huo walked to the outside of the entrance to the courtyard manor. His heart was filled with worries. Seeing this closed entrance gates, Zhou Huo hesitated for a long time before finally extending his hand to knock on the gates. Right when he extended his hand, the courtyard manor's gates opened by themselves with a squeak.
"Huo'er, come on in." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's sonorous and powerful voice sounded.
"Yes, Lord Father." Zhou Huo complied respectfully. After that, he entered into the courtyard manor. At this moment, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had his hands behind his back and was standing in the center of the courtyard with his back facing Zhou Huo. His silhouette was still that tall and straight!
When Zhou Huo saw the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, his worries and feelings of grievance all burst forth at once. He immediately bowed and said sorrowly. "Lord Father, Zhou Ran has also died. Lord Father, please attain justice for them."
Zhou Huo felt truly powerless.
When faced with Qin Yu, Zhou Huo had no means of handling him at all. The Eight Great Sage Emperors were powerful. Even when they faced the Asura Godking, they would still be able to threaten him. However, when faced against Qin Yu, it was likely difficult for them to even harm Qin Yu.
And this time around, Jiang Lan's strength had suddenly increased. He had become a super expert comparable to the Asura Godking.
The current Fog City possessed Qin Yu and Jiang Lan, the two super experts. Even if the Eight Great Sage Emperors joined hands against them, they would still be unable to do anything to them. They had no choice but to admit that the Fog City was now the number one power of the Divine Realm!
If he wanted revenge, the only way possible was to rely on his father… the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial!
"Huo'er, do not be anxious."
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said indifferently. His voice seemed to not even contain the slightest anger. After that, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial turned around. His hawk-like eyes looked to Zhou Huo. "The descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain has placed numerous restrictions upon I, your father. Regarding Qin Yu, we should exercise forbearance."
"Father…" Hearing what the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had said, Zhou Huo felt a burst of pain.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial gaze was clear and cold. Indifferently, he said. "Huo'er, there is no need for you to be too pained. Let the dead be dead. Those who are alive are still alive. You still have a son. Among Zhou Xian's generation, there are still many Zhou descendents."
Zhou Huo curb his mood and stood to the side respectfully.
"Now that the Exalted Celestial Mountain has descended, both I and the other Exalted Celestials are all not allowed to act as we wish. Right now, we will allow that Qin Yu to remain free and unfettered for several tens of more years…" Cold lights flashed through the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's pair of hawk eyes. "When the new Exalted Celestial is born, it shall be the time for my Origin Sin Sword to carry out its punishment."
Although the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was an Exalted Celestial, he still possessed concerns in his heart.
His third son Zhou Yan, aka. Zhou Wulian, was the most loved child of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial. The death of Zhou Wulian had caused the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial to possess unforgettable hatred for Qin Yu.
Merely, the words of his Eldest Martial Brother the Floating Feather Exalted Celestial were still lingering by his ears… "Martial Younger Brother, according to the rules, from the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain till the birth of the New Exalted Celestial, you only have a single opportunity to attack. As for that opportunity, you have already promised it to Jiang Fan. Now that the Exalted Celestial Mountain has descended, 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!"
Directly killing the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial!
Just thinking about it caused the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's heart to shiver. The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was never one to joke around. The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial knew this very well. He was certain that if he were to truly attack Qin Yu, it was likely that even before he could kill Qin Yu, he would already be killed by the Floating Feather Exalted Celestial.
As for whether the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial possessed the ability to kill him, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial did not doubt this in the slightest!
"I can only wait until the new Exalted Celestial is born." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's eyes narrowed. The red mark in between his eyebrows grew even more bright. "The date when the new Exalted Celestial is born shall be the date of Qin Yu's death!"
Actually, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial possessed another opportunity to deal with Qin Yu. That is the time when Jiang Fan has him act. When Jiang Fan had him act for him, if Qin Yu just so happened to be contesting for the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure, then he could kill Qin Yu openly.
If Qin Yu does not go to contest for the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure but instead continues to stay peacefully in the Fog City, then the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial possessed no justifications for going over to kill Qin Yu.
Fog City, inside the Purple Mystic Mansion.
Above the grandiose Inner Lake with a circumference of a hundred miles were numerous pavilions situated all around the lake. A long winding pathway connected the various pavilions through the entire Inner Lake.
Qin Yu and Jiang Li were slowly walking through the path. They looked to the surging lake water. It had already been a year or two since the battle for the Back Earth Seal. In these years, Qin Yu had been living his life comfortably.
"Brother Yu, how come I haven't seen Xiao Hei in the past couple months?" Jiang Li said in confusion.
In the Purple Mystic Mansion, Qin Yu would frequently be together with Hei Yu and Hou Fei. As for Jiang Li, she would frequently be together with Bai Ling and Zi Xia. Thus, Jiang Li naturally had seen Hou Fei and Hei Yu frequently.
However, in the recent days, Jiang Li had not seen Hei Yu.
"Oh, you're asking about Xiao Hei?" Qin Yu recalled the scene from several months ago.
Time that, Qin Yu was chatting with Hei Yu and Hou Fei. They were discussing about the various Godkings of the Divine Realm. However, Hei Yu suddenly stopped in mid speech. When Qin Yu and Hou Fei looked to Hei Yu in confusion, he remained startled for a bit longer before reacting and immediately telling Qin Yu and Hou Fei. "Big brother, Monkey, while we were speaking earlier, I seemed to have sensed that I managed to comprehend something. I'm going to immediately enter seclusion training."
As he said that, Hei Yu did not bother to waste any time. He immediately moved and disappeared before Qin Yu and Hou Fei.
"Li'er, I think Xiao Hei managed to comprehend something and thus decided to enter seclusion training. Perhaps Xiao Hei would be able to reach the Godking stage this time around." Qin Yu said with a smile.
Jiang Li also nodded.
"Eh, Little Shuang has come." Jiang Li suddenly saw Qin Shuang jumping and shouting in a pavilion to the distant. "Dad, Mom, Dad, Mom…" This Qin Shuang shouted very lively and also ran very fast.
Seeing her son, Jiang Li smiled so deeply that her eyes narrowed. She immediately walked over joyfully.
Qin Yu also walked over with a smile on his face. However, right after he took two steps, Qin Yu's expression changed.
"Li'er." Qin Yu suddenly shouted.
Surprised, Jiang Li turned around and looked to Qin Yu. Her gaze showed her confusion. Qin Yu raised his eyebrows and smiled eccentrically. "Li'er, it would seem that I will also have to enter seclusion training for ten days to half a month."
"Seclusion training? Brother Yu, you're going to enter seclusion training?" Jiang Li was completely confused.
"The second layer space of the New Cosmos is on the verge of completion." Qin Yu said with a smile.
Hearing that, Jiang Li displayed a joyous expression on her face. "Ah, that's truly wonderful. Brother Yu, after the second layer space of the New Cosmos is completed, how much stronger will you become?" Jiang Li was not certain about these things.
"I'll tell you when I return. I'll be leaving for the New Cosmos now." Qin Yu said.
"Mn." Jiang Li held Qin Shuang who had already ran over to her and nodded to Qin Yu.
"Dad, are you leaving?" Qin Shuang's black eyes looked to Qin Yu in confusion.
With a smile, Qin Yu stroked Qin Shuang's head. "Dad would return in ten days to half a month's time." After that, Qin Yu took a glance at Jiang Li and then disappeared.
Inside a space of the New Cosmos's second layer space.
Qin Yu appeared. He looked to the boundless cosmic stars that surrounded him and then directly closed his eyes and sat down cross-legged within the cosmic space. In his mind, the constant development of the various locations in the New Cosmos appeared.
At this moment, the second layer space of the New Cosmos was already close to completion.
Practically all of the cosmic spaces of the New Cosmos's second layer space had been completed. Only a small number of cosmic space was collapsing, vibrating and condensing constantly. They were gradually moving toward stability to a final stable cosmic space.
When the various spatial slabs condensed together, the cosmic spaces of the New Cosmos's second layer space finally turned into one entity. The second layer space was finally completed.
