The three colored light enveloped Chehou Yuan. At this moment, the gazes of all the Godkings present on the Exalted Celestial Mountain were fixed upon Chehou Yuan. All of them had very complicated expressions. There was jealousy, envy and even deep unwillingness.
The battle for the Exalted Celestial had lasted for so long. More than ten Godkings had fallen in the struggle. Many Godkings had also become the servants of the Purple Mystic Mansion. However, in the end, the new Exalted Celestial was this Chehou Yuan.
The three colored light which originally enveloped Chehou Yuan suddenly shot off in all directions. In an instant, the entire Exalted Celestial Mountain was covered by the three colored light. The dense aura of the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure had caused the various Godkings to quake in fear.
"Chehou Yuan has become an Exalted Celestial." Said Jiang Lan who stood beside Qin Yu in a low voice.
Jiang Lan had experienced the last Exalted Celestial Mountain. Thus, he knew very well that this scene meant that in the short amount of time earlier, Chehou Yuan had managed to completely comprehend the Temporal Laws. Although others might think that it was merely a moment, but the time at the location where Chehou Yuan was at had been accelerated by a hundred million times. It had already been countless years for Chehou Yuan.
After opening his eyes, Chehou Yuan had a faint smile on his face.
The scarlet colored membrane that covered the Exalted Celestial Mountain disappeared. After that, the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron and the floating slate on the summit of the Exalted Celestial Mountain both soared to the sky and began flying upwards.
Qin Yu spread out his New Cosmos's Spatial Energy to follow these two items. He wanted to know where the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron and the floating slate would fly to. It was not only Qin Yu, many other Godkings had also spread out their Divine Awareness to follow the two items.
However, after merely a short moment, Qin Yu's New Cosmos's Spatial Energy felt the peak height of the Divine Realm. After reaching that point, the Spatial Energy was unable to proceed forward. However, this Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron and the floating slate actually ignored the membrane at the utmost limit to the top of the Divine Realm and continued onward…
"Where did those two items fly to? What is up above the Divine Realm?" Qin Yu was puzzled.
And at this moment, many Godkings were making their greetings and offering good gestures to Chehou Yuan.
"Exalted Celestial Chehou!"
One by one, respectful voices sounded in the air. Back then, Chehou Yuan who had became the Craftsman God was merely a High Level Heavenly Deity. However now, Chehou Yuan had already became an Exalted Celestial. As an Exalted Celestial, Chehou Yuan was someone high above these Godkings.
"Exalted Celestial? New Exalted Celestial?" Jiang Fan looked to Chehou Yuan. In his heart was a deep sense of unwillingness and jealousy.
He had obtained two of the three portions of the Living World Seal. Why was it that in the end, it was Chehou Yuan who became the new Exalted Celestial?
"Chehou Yuan, quickly follow me to go pay your respect to master." That cold voice directly sounded in Chehou Yuan's mind. As for the other Godkings, they did not hear the voice.
After Chehou Yuan became an Exalted Celestial, he managed to know a lot more too. He knew that above the first Exalted Celestial, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial, the second Exalted Celestial, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, and the third Exalted Celestial, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial, was an even more powerful person, the master of all the Exalted Celestial… Master Lin Meng.
"Yes, Eldest Martial Brother." Chehou Yuan replied through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
Chehou Yuan swept his gaze across the surrounding Godkings. He then looked to Qin Yu and them. With a smile, he said. "Qin Yu, Yi Feng, Jiang Lan, farewell. We shall meet again."
After that, Chehou Yuan disappeared into the air.
Suddenly, an explosion capable of shocking the soul was heard. Suddenly, that Exalted Celestial Mountain disappeared. Once again, the entire Divine Realm had returned to normal. Air started to move, waves started to surge and the countless Deities and Heavenly Deities returned to normal. They continued to do what they were doing. Those who were chatting continued to chat. Those who were training continued to train. It was as if that the period of time earlier did not occur at all.
The sudden disappearance of the Exalted Celestial Mountain had caused the Godkings to be standing in the sky.
"Haha, after battling for several tens of years, after the death of all those Godkings, I have only made a wedding dress for another. In the end, all was naught." In anger, Jiang Fan laughed out loud. After that, he directly teleported back into the Floating Snow City.
The Asura Godking and the Blood Sea Queen both had complicated expressions. In the end, they also teleported and returned to their respective places.
"Uncle Lan, Uncle Yi Feng, Li'er, let's return too." Qin Yu said to Jiang Lan and them after seeing the Godkings leaving one by one. It was not only Qin Yu and them, the dozen plus Godking servants had also returned.
After they returned to the Purple Mystic Mansion through teleportation, Qin Yu immediately made his decision.
"I reckon that only seven to eight months remain till the completion of the New Cosmos. Mn, I will immediately enter seclusion training." Qin Yu knew very well that at the final moments before the completion of the New Cosmos, the New Cosmos would undergo a lot of changes. It would also benefit him if he were to go there right now and carefully comprehend what was happening.
Inside the Purple Mystic Mansion.
Qin Yu said his farewell to his relatives and brothers. After that, he directly entered into the New Cosmos and began the final seclusion training and comprehension before the completion of the New Cosmos.
In the sky above the Divine Realm, Qin Yu as well as the other Godkings had all thought this to be the highest place of the DIvine Realm. However, in reality, there was another space above this 'highest place.' This place contained a boundless amount of Auspicious Clouds. On the end of the Auspicious Clouds was a beautiful and illusion like palace.
"Eldest Martial Brother, why are you so urgent? Although master is going to gather us because of the birth of the new Exalted Celestial, it will only take me a brief moment to kill that Qin Yu. I would be able to make it back in time to see master in the White Cloud Palace after killing Qin Yu. Eldest Martial Brother, why did you stop me?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said to the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial with an angry tone.
At this moment, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial were flying, one ahead and one in the rear.
As for the new Exalted Celestial Chehou Yuan and the Unfettered Exalted Celestial, they had likely already arrived at the power-center of this Cosmos, the White Cloud Palace. As for the reason why the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was slower, it was because he had gone to intercept the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial.
"Second Martial Younger Brother, is master's matter more important or is your matter more important?" The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial's voice was cold.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's heart immediately began to palpitate with fear. Earlier, he was only full of anger because he was obstructed by the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial when he was about to attack Qin Yu. It was only now did he recall the strength of the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and his influence before their master.
With great difficulty, he restrained the anger in his heart and said in a humble and respectful tone. "Eldest Martial Brother, thank you for pointing that out to me. Master's matters are indeed much more important. Had it not been for Eldest Martial Brother pointing that out to be, I was nearly blinded by hatred."
"It's good that you know. After we finish seeing the master, whatever you plan to do later does not concern me." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial had a cold expression on his face.
"Yes, Eldest Martial Brother." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial strongly contained the anger in his heart. "Qin Yu, I shall allow you live for a little longer."
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had wanted to kill Qin Yu for a long time now. However, because of the rules which were set by his master and the fear from his Eldest Martial Brother's threat, he had no choice but to restrain himself. However, now that Chehou Yuan had become the new Exalted Celestial, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was able to go and kill Qin Yu for revenge. Yet, right when he was about to attack, he was stopped. How could he not be angry?
"We've reached the White Cloud Palace." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial lightly said.
Before their eyes was the White Cloud Palace located within countless Auspicious Clouds. It was the center at which the control of the Divine Realm, countless Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm level cosmic spaces as well as the countless Mortal Realm cosmic spaces was located!
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately exercised restraint on his aura and, at the moment when he set foot onto the steps of the White Cloud Palace, he appeared much more modest. One following the other, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial entered into the White Cloud Palace. The entire White Cloud Palace was extremely strange. The flow of time within the White Cloud Palace was changing unceasingly. Sometimes, the time would be accelerated by several times whereas other times it would be several million times or even hundred of millions of times.
Essentially, the flow of time in the White Cloud Palace was changing constantly.
Inside a large hall within the White Cloud Palace.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial and Exalted Celestial Chehou were respectfully standing there. In the center of the hall was a sturdy looking youth wearing a gown and had his hands behind his back.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately called out respectfully. "Master."
"Master." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial also said respectfully.
At this moment, the gowned youth turned around. He had long dark brown hair, a pair of abstruse eyes and an amiable smile. However, this gowned youth displayed a frightening power that brought about fear to others.
This youth was precisely the person that Qin Yu called 'Second Brother,' Lin Meng!
When he saw his master, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately buried the hatred he had for Qin Yu into the depths of his heart. He did not dare to act disrespectful in the slightest before his master. That was because he knew that while his master was able to make him into an Exalted Celestial, he was also capable of making him lose everything instantly.
Inside the Divine Realm of the almost completed New Cosmos, Qin Yu was sitting cross-legged in the middle of the air. The Divine Realm of the New Cosmos was currently desolate. There was no living thing there at all.
Qin Yu's soul had fused together with the New Cosmos. Thus, he knew very well about the developments throughout the entire New Cosmos.
Within Qin Yu's mind was the development model for the New Cosmos.
"The Divine Realm is the highest layer of the entire Cosmos. It controls the power of the five elements, the power of yin and yang and the power of thunder and lightning. The Cosmic Origin is also required to fuse together with it."
Qin Yu was feeling the development of the New Cosmos.
The entire Divine Realm suddenly started shaking. After that, the entire Divine Realm became stable. Qin Yu displayed a cheerful expression. The third layer, the Divine Realm, was finally complete.
"Even though the Divine Realm is completed, there is still a small step before the entire New Cosmos is complete. I reckon there is still a need for a month or two." Qin Yu knew very well that what the New Cosmos needed to do now was to make the three layers of the New Cosmos form into a single organic entity and make the Cosmos be even more perfect.
At this moment…
The speed at which the entire New Cosmos was absorbing the Grandmist Spiritual Energy was relatively slow. That was because the entire New Cosmos had reached its final state before completion.
Time passed, the New Cosmos gradually grew closer to perfection.
"Huff!" A burst of Grandmist Spiritual Energy was absorbed into the New Cosmos.
The entire New Cosmos started to quake violently. Qin Yu immediately displayed an ecstatic expression. His New Cosmos was finally completed. However, after that, Qin Yu's expression grew serene.
Within Qin Yu's mind.
In Qin Yu's ceramic glaze colored Nascent Soul, because of the completion of the New Cosmos, streams of peculiar and profound energies were unceasingly entering into Qin Yu's soul. Qin Yu's Nascent Soul started to emit a scarlet light. After that, it turned into a golden light. After that, it turned hazy purple. And after that, his entire soul became hazy and started to radiate all kinds of colors, enveloping his entire mind.
Qin Yu's hazy soul suddenly separated itself and then disappeared.
"Haha, so this was it, so this was it." Qin Yu opened his eyes. Within his eyes was the circulation of the nebula and the development of the cosmos. Qin Yu stood up. "Half of my soul had actually fused together with the entire New Cosmos! In that case… as long as the New Cosmos continues to exist, I will be able to exist forever."
With the completion of the New Cosmos, Qin Yu's soul had advanced by leaps and bounds. After that, his soul directly split into two. Half of his soul directly fused with the New Cosmos whereas the other half fused with Qin Yu's corporeal body.
For the current Qin Yu, his soul had turned into nothingness. It was simply impossible for others to harm him.
As for his physical body…
With a smile, Qin Yu waved his hand. Immediately, a burst of Dark and Yellow Energy flew to Qin Yu. The completion of the New Cosmos actually did not require the usage of this Dark and Yellow Energy to stabilize the five elements. When the New Cosmos was completed, Qin Yu naturally came to know many peculiar abilities.
From the birth of the Cosmos, the most wondrous element was the Dark and Yellow Energy.
"Only sixty percent of these Dark and Yellow Energy is required in order to create the Indestructible Dark Yellow Body" With an intention from Qin Yu, the majority of the Dark and Yellow Energy entered into Qin Yu's body. Qin Yu's body immediately started to emit a boundless amount of Dark and Yellow golden light.
Qin Yu extended a finger.
"Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure? From the way it seems now, they are merely ordinary weapons. Once the Indestructible Dark Yellow Body is formed, I can destroy an Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure using a single finger." Qin Yu was lightly smiling.
The completion of the New Cosmos not only gave him such a remarkable ability.
It also gave him many other remarkable abilities. Among them was the most important 'Life Creation' ability.
"This newly formed Divine Realm is truly desolate." Qin Yu smiled and looked to the newly formed Divine Realm. Immediately, countless amount of ocean water appeared in the newly formed Divine Realm. Five enormous floating islands had also appeared in the five directions of east, west, south, north and center.
Compared to Lin Meng's Divine Realm, the amount of land in Qin Yu's Divine Realm was much more larger
"There's too little life."
Qin Yu looked to the ocean. The ocean started to roll about. An enormous dragon with a length of ten thousand miles was swimming through the ocean. One by one, underwater demonic beasts appeared in the ocean. After that, countless amount of other kinds of demonic beasts started to appear.
Qin Yu had only created some demonic beasts before stopping his creation. The process of making this New Cosmos filled with life and civilization was a very complicated task. For the time being, Qin Yu did not have the energy to do that.
"As the creator of the New Cosmos, I possessed truly a large amount of peculiar abilities." Qin Yu was not urgent to return to the Divine Realm. Instead, he began to experiment with his numerous abilities.
"Huff!" After walking out from the White Cloud Palace, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial heaved a long sigh of relief.
"Every single time I see the master, I feel a large pressure." Right after that, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial remembered Qin Yu. "Qin Yu? Fortunately, the flow of time in the White Cloud Palace this time around could not be considered as being too fast as a whole; only a single year had passed in the outside world."
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial looked down. His gaze was cast through the boundless amount of Auspicious Clouds. It appeared as if the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had managed to see the Purple Mystic Mansion.
"Qin Yu, you have killed three of my sons and two of my grandsons. Right now, it shall be the time of your death." The anger and resentment that the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had contained in his heart immediately flooded his chest. He immediately started to rush toward the Purple Mystic Mansion.
The Purple Mystic Mansion was still as peaceful and quiet as before. A purple gowned silver haired old man appeared in the Purple Mystic Mansion. At this moment, the red mark in the center of the silver haired old man's eyebrows were shining with an unprecedented level of brightness.
It was like a drop of blood.
"He's not here?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial frowned. He had cast his Divine Awareness through the entire Purple Mystic Mansion but, to his surprise, he didn't manage to find Qin Yu. This caused the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial to burst into rage. "Not here? Well, that's simple too. You've killed my sons and grandsons, I shall return that to you with some interest now." A cruel smile appeared on the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's face.
"Qin Yu, come out here!'
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial suddenly shouted.
"Qin Yu, come out here!" "Qin Yu, come out here!" "Qin Yu, come out here!"…
Like a myriad of thunder, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's voice echoed through the Purple Mystic Mansion. All of the people in the Purple Mystic Mansion, including even those Godkings, were enveloped by the frightening pressure. After that, they were all brought to the plaza before the Purple Mystic Mansion's entrance.
Over a thousand people were brought here.
"Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial!" Jiang Lan, Zuo Qiulin and them immediately recognized who it was. Their expressions immediately turned extremely ugly. Many Qin clansmen also managed to recognize the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial as they had all seen the appearance of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial through the water screen.
"Speak, where did Qin Yu go?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial stood in the sky above the plaza like a Devil God.
The hearts of the Godkings below were all palpitating in fear. There was no need to mention the fear that the Heavenly Deities and Deities. As for the Qin Clansmen who were still only Immortals, they were extremely scared.
"Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, what do you want here?" Hei Yu was the first to shout at him coldly.
"Mn?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial coldly humped.
"Pfff!" As if his chest had been firmly hit by a fist, Hei Yu started to vomit blood and directly fell to the ground.
