When describing it, it seemed to be slow. However in actuality, Qin Yu's speed was extremely fast. Once he appeared, he immediately snatched the All People Seal from Jiang Fan with lightning-like speed.
Zhou Huo and Zhou Xian's eyes were opened wide and round like a ball. Within their eyes were anger and fear. At this moment, the two of them were unable to move at all.
"Qin Yu, you've finally come." When the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial saw the arrival of Qin Yu, he was instead extremely excited. According to the rules, he could only act once. If he were to kill Qin Yu within this one time that he was allowed to act and attack, then it could not be considered as a violation to the rules at all.
"Time Stop, merely a child's play." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was extremely proficient in the Temporal Laws. With an intention, he was planning to eliminate Qin Yu's Time Stop.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial who was trapped by the Time Stop was unable to contain his surprise. "What sort of Time Stop is this? Why isn't it subjected to my control?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately grew anxious.
This Time Stop, it was created through using the New Cosmos' Temporal Energy to stop the flow of time.
How could the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial possibly be able to control the New Cosmos' Temporal Energy?
There were only two methods to remove Time Stop. The first was through the comprehension of Time Stop itself. The second was to break it apart by force. However, breaking Time Stop by force generally required one to use some time.
"Not good, not good!" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately grew nervous.
"Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, I'm sorry."
Qin Yu's ice cold voice sounded in the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's mind. After Qin Yu snatched the All People Seal from Jiang Fan's hands, a simple and unadorned black spear appeared in Qin Yu's hand. On the shaft of the spear circulated Dark and Yellow Energy.
It was the Divine Spear Waning Snow.
Qin Yu's body suddenly moved. Like an arrow, his body was shot forward rapidly. The spearhead of the Divine Spear Waning Snow was closest to Zhou Huo. The distance between them were only several meters. It was truly too small of a distance.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had already activated his Origin Energy in order to activate the power of the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure Origin Sin Sword. The flow of time seemed to have turned into a string that was pulled to its extreme and could snap apart at any moment.
However, no matter how strong the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was, it would still take him a bit of time in order to break the New Cosmos' Time Stop. That short period of time was sufficient enough for Qin Yu to kill Zhou Huo.
"No…" Zhou Huo stared at the spearhead that was coming closer and closer to his face. His heart was filled with unwillingness.
At this moment, he recalled the Utmost South Sage Emperor Duanmu Yun who had died earlier. Duanmu Yun also had his head pierced through. He, Zhou Huo, would also have the same ending.
At the moment before his death, Zhou Huo was still hoping for his father to save him. However, it was too late.
Ruthlessly, the ice-cold Divine Spear Waning Snow directly pierced into Zhou Huo's head. The frightening energy within the Divine Spear Waning Snow easily ripped apart the layer of Origin Energy that covered Zhou Huo's soul.
Zhou Huo's True Spirit was directly shattered.
The Blood Sea Queen's Blood Fork's attack power was inferior to even first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. It was completely incomparable to Qin Yu's Divine Spear Waning Snow's attack power. The Divine Spear Waning Snow combined with Time Stop, killing Sage Emperors was simply of no difficulty.
At the moment when the Divine Spear Waning Snow pierced through Zhou Huo's head, its speed did not reduce in the slightest. Once again, it was rapidly thrust forward.
"Bang!" The Divine Spear Waning Snow's auxiliary effect, Body Break, was immediately mobilized. Zhou Huo's body directly exploded on the spot. It turned into a large amount of blood, minced meat and shattered bones. As for the black gowned Qin Yu, he appeared like a God of Death as he continued to thrust forward his Divine Spear Waning Snow.
The Divine Spear Waning Snow merely slightly changed its direction.
The Divine Spear Waning Snow directly proceed to thrust forward Zhou Xian who was beside Zhou Huo. The speed of the Divine Spear Waning Snow was still that fast. Qin Yu's hand was extremely steady, there was not the slightest amount of hesitation. His gaze was fixed deadly upon Zhou Xian's eyes.
"No, no." Zhou Xian looked at the Divine Spear Waning Snow that was thrust toward him with a rapid speed. His heart was filled with fear.
At the moment before, his father, the Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Huo had been turned into mincemeat and had his True Spirit shattered. He, Zhou Xian, possessed strength much inferior to the Northwest Sage Emperor.
There was no need to doubt what sort of conclusion it would be if the Divine Spear Waning Snow were to pierce through his head.
"No…" Zhou Xian's heart was filled with unwillingness.
Seeing the black gowned and ice-cold Qin Yu before his eyes, Zhou Xian only felt that the Heavens had played a huge joke on him. The brat from the Mortal Realm back then, when Zhou Xian first saw him, Zhou Xian had only felt that he was a powerless ant, someone he would kill with a flip of his hand.
However, in less than twenty thousand years.
This Qin Yu had become the Divine Realm's new Craftsman God, a very influential person. Furthermore, in the few years after, Qin Yu's strength continued to increase at an astonishing rate. Before he became a Godking, he was already able to defeat Zhou Tong. After he became a Godking, he killed Zhou Wulian and Zhou Tong.
His might was so powerful that it was a tier above the Asura Godking.
And now, before his grandfather, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, Qin Yu was actually planning to kill him!
At the moment when the Divine Spear Waning Snow was only several tens of centimeters from Zhou Xian's eyes, filled with unwillingness, Zhou Xian snarled in his heart.
The New Cosmos' Temporal Energy that blocked the flow of time suddenly collapsed. Time once again returned to normal. Time Stop had been broken. Qin Yu's expression changed. "This Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, what powerful strength. He broke it even faster than I anticipated." Qin Yu began to increase the speed of his thrust.
Qin Yu was unable to thrust his Divine Spear Waning Snow forward anymore.
A voice that sounded dull, but actually contained a boundless amount of anger, sounded in Qin Yu's mind like the thunders from the Ninth Heaven. Qin Yu's mind felt a burst of rumble.
At the same time, Qin Yu felt an extremely strange matter occurring to him. The time surrounding him started to change irregularly. His Divine Spear Waning Snow actually grew further and further away from Zhou Xian.
He was moving backwards!
No, it's not moving backwards, it was returning to the past!
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's sharp gaze was firmly fixed upon Qin Yu. The shock in his heart was something that couldn't be described with words. At this moment, he had many questions. For example… How come Qin Yu could directly teleport onto the Exalted Celestial Mountain without going through the Relief Sculpture Tunnel.
Even Exalted Celestials were required to go through the Relief Sculpture Tunnel.
On the Exalted Celestial Mountain, the Divine Realm's Spatial Energy was under restriction. Thus, no matter who it was, they could not directly teleport into the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
Other than this, he was also puzzled by Qin Yu's Time Stop. Why was it different from ordinary Time Stops? Why was he unable to eliminate the Time Stop and could only force it apart?
However, no matter how many things he was puzzled by, it was still unable to stop the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's hatred and anger toward Qin Yu!
A thick and broad gigantic sword appeared in the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's hand. This gigantic sword was precisely the legendary Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure, Origin Sin Sword. The Origin Sin Sword merely slightly moved and a ray of sword energy shot toward Qin Yu.
The speed of the Origin Sin Sword's sword energy was truly too fast. While Qin Yu was still in the state of 'Time Reversal,' he was hit by the sword energy.
During the battle against the Thunder Punishment City's Four Great Godkings, Qin Yu killed Zhou Wulian and Zhou Tong. At that time, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had attacked twice. The first time he used the Single Aura Eight Elements. However, the Single Aura Eight Elements was unable to break apart the Spatial Freezing. His second attack was the sword energy that originated from the Original Sin Sword. Like a knife cutting apart part, that sword energy easily cut apart the Spatial Freezing.
The might of the sword energy was much more powerful than the Single Aura Eight Elements.
"Dead for sure." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial removed Time Reversal. He was extremely confident. Even an Exalted Celestial would be heavily injured if they were to receive a sword strike from the Origin Sin Sword. As for Godkings, they would die for sure.
When the sword energy entered his body, Qin Yu appeared like a mortal being struck by lightning. His body started to violently shiver and twitch.
"Pfff…" Like an opened dam, Qin Yu was unceasingly vomiting blood from his mouth. He was in the air and continued to tremble non stop. Blood continued to flow out from his eyes and nose without stopping. His complexion turned pale like paper. It was extremely frightening.
Having received the attack of the Origin Sin Sword's sword energy, death was certain!
Qin Yu who was bleeding from his eyes, ears, nose and mouth suddenly disappeared. Before the eyes of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, the Sage Emperors and the various Godkings, Qin Yu disappeared from the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
"Grandfather, quickly, we got to chase after him. We have to kill that Qin Yu." Zhou Xian's eyes were filled with rage and grief.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial nodded and said coldly. "This Qin Yu does indeed possess some powerful abilities. He was actually able to directly teleport out of the Exalted Celestial Mountain without going through the Relief Sculpture Tunnel."
One was required to go through the Relief Sculpture Tunnel in order to exit the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
This was an established rule. However, Qin Yu had violated this rule twice in a row.
The spiritual pearl that had thunder and lightning revolving around it suddenly flew out from the shattered flesh and directly flew toward Zhou Xian. This spiritual pearl was precisely the Zhou Clan's Clan Protection Spiritual Treasure, the Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl. As the Zhou Clan currently only had a single Godking left, this Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl would naturally land in the hands of Zhou Xian.
"Xian'er, first drip your blood on it to become its master." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said.
Zhou Xian knew very well in his heart. He immediately dripped a drop of blood from his fingertips into the Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl. After that, the Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl directly flew toward Zhou Xian's head and started to float at the top of his head.
The new Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Xian.
"Senior Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, that All People Seal is in Qin Yu's hands. Quickly, we need to chase after him." Jiang Fan said impatiently. He had given everything he had for the All People Seal. The All People Seal was literally his life. Qin Yu had snatched the All People Seal from him, thus he naturally had to snatch it back.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial nodded indifferently. "Rest assured, that Qin Yu received a sword strike from the Origin Sin Sword. His soul's True Spirit is definitely shattered. He is certainly going to die. He had merely escaped before his death. I reckon that he is dead with his soul shattered by now… I'll accompany you all right…"
"Martial Younger Brother!"
An ice-cold voice sounded in the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's mind.
"You have already acted per the assignment that Jiang Fan had requested you to do. You have acted and attacked once and thus cannot act again. Right now, you are not allowed to participate in the contest between the Godkings. Return right away." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial's voice did not even contain the slightest margin of discussion.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's expression grew solemn.
"Yes, Eldest Martial Brother." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately replied through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial did not dare to go against the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial's command at all. If he were to go against it, then although the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial had not mentioned what the result would be, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was able to imagine it.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial suddenly looked to the surrounding Sage Emperors and Godkings. Indifferently, he said. "That Qin Yu is dead for certain. You all merely need to go to the Fog City and snatch the All People Seal back. In the current Fog City, the only expert there is Jiang Lan. The Asura Godking and that little girl are both individuals who have comprehended Time Stop. The two of them can easily defeat Jiang Lan if they join hands. If you all were go to to the Fog City, it is certain that you would snatch the All People Seal back. There is no need for me to participate in this."
After the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial finished saying that, he nodded to Zhou Xian and then flew toward the Relief Sculpture Tunnel and exited the Exalted Celestial Mountain through it.
"Senior Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial." The Asura Godking bowed respectfully.
At this moment, the binding on all the Godkings was removed. Furthermore, the words spoken by the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial were clearly heard by the Asura Godking and the Blood Sea Queen who were outside too.
Qin Yu had died. The only remaining threat was Jiang Lan. What was there to fear anymore?
"Hfff." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial directly teleported away before everyone present
As for the Eight Great Sage Emperors, the Asura Godking and the Blood Sea Queen, their eyes all shined coldly. Qin Yu had died. The All People Seal was extremely easy to obtain.
Outside of the Fog City.
Qin Yu appeared here. Qin Yu did not immediately teleport back into the Purple Mystic Mansion. He feared that his relatives would be worried.
Qin Yu once again vomited a mouthful of blood.
"The might of the attack from the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure was truly terrifying." Qin Yu gasped in admiration. If his body was damaged, it would only take a blink of an eye's time to recover. What greatest harm to Qin Yu was the injuries to his soul!
Inside Qin Yu's mind.
At this moment, the Nascent Soul that had eight different kinds of light flickering about was currently growing dim and faint. When he received the attack from the Origin Sin Sword, it was as if his Nascent Soul received a huge cut. At that moment, Qin Yu was truly feeling that he was approaching death.
Fortunately, after the Eight Great Origin Energies completely fused with his Nascent Soul, his recovery ability had reached an unprecedented level. Furthermore, Qin Yu's soul had completely fused with the New Cosmos. The New Cosmos' Cosmic Origin immediately started to unceasingly send forth Origin Energy to assist Qin Yu's soul.
After wiping the blood from the corner of his mouth, Qin Yu had a trace of smile on his face. "This Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's attack power is not small. I reckon that they all think that I'm dead by now."
"Oh, all of those Godkings have arrived? I should properly greet them."
Qin Yu waved his hand. The All People Seal that everyone was fighting over appeared in his palm. After that, with a smile on his face, Qin Yu moved and returned to the Purple Mystic Mansion.
