"Pfff!" As if his chest had been firmly hit by a fist, Hei Yu started to vomit blood and directly fell to the ground. Immediately, his complexion turned pale. The strength of Exalted Celestials was simply not something that Godkings could resist.
"I shall ask again, if no one answers me, then I shall start conducting Soul Search." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said coldly.
"Mom, when will dad return?" Qin Si asked Jiang Li through voice transmission.
Jiang Li lightly shook her head. "Mom doesn't know either. However, he should be returning soon. Little Si, no matter what, we cannot allow you dad to be caught up in danger."
Over a thousand people from the Purple Mystic Mansion were standing on the plaza. Adding on the Godking servants, there was close to twenty Godkings present. However, when faced with the murderous-looking Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, the Godkings also do not have the slightest ability to resist him.
"I shall ask one last time, where is Qin Yu?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's expression was extremely cold.
"Haha… Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, with what you're doing, how could you be worthy to be an Exalted Celestial? If you wish to kill us, then kill us. As for my big brother, you can forget about finding him. By the time you find him, my big brother will have the strength to kill you." Hei Yu said coldly.
Hei Yu had grown up together with Qin Yu. In terms of their relationship, it was likely that even Qin Feng and Qin Zheng could not compare to Hei Yu and Qin Yu.
"Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial is Hou Fei's father. You also know the relationship the Exalted Celestial Chehou has with our Purple Mystic Mansion. If you were to kill us, I'm afraid that those two Exalted Celestials would not let you off that easily." Jiang Li loudly said.
In anger, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial started laughing. The Unfettered Exalted Celestial? Exalted Celestial Chehou? The people from the Thunder Punishment City didn't know at all that the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial did not fear the two of them at all. The only Exalted Celestial he feared was the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial!
"Huff!" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial extended his hand and lightly pressed downward. The thousand plus people present all felt a frightening pressure and were all pressed down into a single-knee kneeling position by it.
"It seems that you're the one who has the tightest lips, I shall use Soul Searching on you." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial looked to Hei Yu with a cold smile on his face. He extended his hand and Hei Yu started to float toward his hand.
"Mixed Hair Bird!"
Hou Fei immediately grew anxious. As for Hei Yu's wife Bai Ling, she was so worried that she was about to cry.
However, it was all useless.
"You want to kill me? Humph, if you kill me, then you should prepare to die later on too." Hei Yu looked to the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial without the slightest amount of fear.
"Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, stop." A voice that contained anger sounded. The thousand plus people present, including the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, all looked to the source of the voice. What they saw was a black gowned Qin Yu walking toward them one step at a time.
Qin Yu's expression was very gloomy as he stared at the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial.
"Qin Yu?" For some unknown reason, when he saw Qin Yu, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial felt that his heart was violently twitching. Surprisingly, he felt fear from Qin Yu. "Why would I fear him? He's merely a Godking."
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial gathered his resolution. "Haha, stop? What a joke, I insist on killing him today. After that, I'll kill you."
Suddenly, the Origin Sin Sword appeared in the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's hands. The Origin Sin Sword turned into a blur as it was swept toward Hei Yu. The speed of the Origin Sin Sword was so fast that those Godkings were simply unable to block it in time. Moreover, they did not dare to block it either.
"Big brother, farewell." Hei Yu did not look at the Origin Sin Sword. Instead, he had turned his head around and was looking at Qin Yu. His gaze was fixed on Qin Yu.
"Xiao Hei, you won't die." Qin Yu's voice sounded in Hei Yu's mind. As for Qin Yu, he had suddenly appeared before Hei Yu. That Origin Sin Sword directly slashed onto Qin Yu's body.
It was like a wooden sword slashing a diamond. Qin Yu was not injured in the slightest.
"This, how could this…" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was dumbstruck.
The Godkings below were also stupefied. The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's Origin Sin Sword was an Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure. The might of an Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure was something that they all knew. However, when the slash landed on Qin Yu's body, it actually was unable to harm him.
Qin Yu extended his index finger and middle finger and held the Origin Sin Sword between them.
"Impossible, impossible!!!" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was snarling. He was unable to believe what was happening. He started to unceasingly control the Origin Sin Sword, trying to move it. However, this Origin Sin Sword was unable to move at all after being held together by Qin Yu's two fingers. All it did was incessantly making a buzzing noise.
"Is it that surprising?" Qin Yu smiled coldly.
He moved his two fingers and "Bang!"A crisp sound was heard. The Origin Sin Sword had been snapped into two. Qin Yu relaxed his fingers and a broken section of the Origin Sin Sword directly fell to the ground. This scene had caused the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial to become stunned.
"This, this is the Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure that my master had bestowed me!" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial didn't dare to believe his eyes.
"Exalted Celestial's Spiritual Treasure?" Qin Yu's middle finger lightly pointed at the damaged Origin Sin Sword. Immediately, the entire Origin Sin Sword began to break apart. It turned into several tens of pieces and fell to the ground.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was standing there motionlessly.
His strongest weapon, the Origin Sin Sword, was this easily destroyed by Qin Yu. The psychological shock this had brought him was truly too great. However, after merely a short moment, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had managed to recover.
"It's impossible, this is definitely impossible, impossible!!!" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had became hysterical and started shouting. After that, he moved his hands and a frightening energy was immediately formed between his hands. This was precisely the Single Aura Eight Elements.
"Martial Younger Brother, do not act rude!" A large shout was heard.
The silver haired silver eyed youth flew over from the sky. When he saw that the person who had came was his Eldest Martial Brother, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately frowned. However, he still continued to brandish the Single Aura Eight Elements toward Qin Yu.
"Impudent." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial shouted coldly. He waved his hand and a black blur flew past. The Single Aura Eight Elements was directly dissipated by it.
"Eldest Martial Brother, why did you stop me?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was unable to contain his anger. He pointed to Qin Yu. "Eldest Martial Brother, this Qin Yu had killed three of my sons in succession and also killed two of my grandsons. This hatred, I cannot live under the same sky as him! Furthermore, the Origin Sin Sword that master had bestowed to me has also been destroyed by him. This hatred, Eldest Martial Brother, say, how can I not take my revenge?"
The corners of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's eyes started to tear up. His eyes had also turned deep red. As for the red mark between his eyebrows, it had become distorted and was trembling unceasingly.
The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial did not care about the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial at all. Instead, he respectfully flew over to Qin Yu. After that, he bowed and said. "Martial Uncle. Congratulation on Martial Uncle's success. Master has ordered this disciple to invite Martial Uncle to the White Cloud Palace."
"Martial, Martial Uncle?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial who was furious and wanted to kill Qin Yu earlier had became completely stunned.
Qin Yu said with a smile. "Oh, I understand. Clayweg, please wait a moment. I will go and see Second Brother with you right away."
"Second, Second Brother?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial felt that his mind was blown.
"Martial Uncle, this Second Younger Martial Brother of mine had been extremely disrespectful toward you. However, Martial Uncle, please be magnanimous and allow my master to punish him personally." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial respectfully said.
Qin Yu lightly nodded. "Good. As he is Second Brother's disciple, I shall allow Second Brother to handle his punishment."
After that, Qin Yu turned around and waved his hand. A surging life energy flew into the bodies of all the people below. The injuries of all the people were immediately recovered. Compared to the Life Elemental Energy from the Godking of Life, this was much more magical.
"Big brother, you've completed it?" Hei Yu's eyes were filled with excitement.
Qin Yu looked to Hei Yu. A strong brotherly affection surged in his heart. Momentarily, Qin Yu didn't know what to say. He merely patted Hei Yu's shoulder.
"Brother Yu." Jiang Li had also flown over. Jiang Lan, Qin Si and them had also flown over.
Earlier, everyone had seen Qin Yu displaying a frightening strength that surpassed even the Exalted Celestial. One by one, they were truly shocked. There was no other way to explain it, there was only a single possibility… Qin Yu's New Cosmos was finally completed.
"Li'er, Uncle Lan… everyone, please rest here for the time being. I shall go out for a bit." Qin Yu said.
Earlier, they had all heard that Qin Yu was going to go to meet the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's master. Just thinking about it caused them to feel terrified. The Exalted Celestials actually had a master?
"Brother Yu, go ahead." Jiang Li immediately nodded.
Qin Yu smiled to everyone. He then turned around and looked to the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial. "Clayweg, let's go." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial nodded. He then turned to the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial and shouted. "Second Martial Young Brother, immediately follow us back to the White Cloud Palace."
"Martial Uncle? Second Brother?"
At this moment, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial still felt that everything was that strange. Qin Yu was a Godking, how did he manage to suddenly become his master's brother?
"Quickly." The Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial shouted.
"Yes, Eldest Martial Brother." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial immediately started to follow the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and Qin Yu. The three of them began to fly upwards. Soon, they disappeared from the sight range of the thousand plus people from the Purple Mystic Mansion.
"Brother Jiang Lan, did I mishear earlier? That Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial had addressed Qin Yu as 'Marital Uncle?' The Exalted Celestials actually have a master? In that case, who is the Exalted Celestials' master?" The shock Godking Yi Feng received was also very great.
Not only him, those Godking servants Tang Lan, Putai Hong, Shentu Yan, Huangfu Lei… and the rest all felt as if they were dreaming. They were all thinking…
The Exalted Celestials were already this powerful. Then, how powerful was the Exalted Celestial's master?
Jiang Lan, Zuo Qiulin and them looked at the ground. The several tens of pieces of fragments of the Origin Sin Sword were on the ground. All of them felt that their hearts were quaking in fear. The scene of Qin Yu shattering the Origin Sin Sword into several tens of pieces with an effortless snap of his finger appeared in their minds.
"What sort of strength is that?" The hearts of the Godkings were all palpitating with fear.
In the depths of the boundless Auspicious Clouds, within the White Cloud Palace.
At this moment, Lin Meng was standing outside of the entrance of the White Cloud Palace. Standing behind him was the Unfettered Exalted Celestial and Exalted Celestial Chehou. When Lin Meng saw the arrival of Qin Yu, he immediately chuckled and called out. "Qin Yu, we finally meet again."
Qin Yu also smiled and nodded. "Second Brother."
"Come, let's go into the palace hall." Lin Meng immediately started to lead the way in the front.
Whether it was Chehou Yuan or the Unfettered Exalted Celestial, they were both shocked. It turned out that the Martial Uncle that Lin Meng mentioned to them earlier was actually a Godking, Qin Yu.
Within the White Cloud Palace's palace hall.
"Qin Yu, sit." Lin Meng and Qin Yu both sat above the palace hall side by side. Several maids in the palace hall immediately brought forth all kinds of exquisite dishes. As for the four Exalted Celestials, they were respectfully standing in the palace hall.
"Qin Yu, before this, let's settle the matter with Zhou An." When Lin Meng saw Qin Yu's expression, he immediately said. "Zhou An is this Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's name."
Only then did Qin Yu understand.
"This disciple is guilty; master, please punish me." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial Zhou An directly kneeled to the ground.
Qin Yu looked to the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial below the palace hall. The forehead of Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was drenched with cold sweat. Evidently, he was extremely scared. This Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial possessed a lot of sons and daughters. There was not only those from the Thunder Punishment City, there were also those that he had left behind in the Lower Realms. Actually, to him, losing a couple sons was also nothing major.
Merely, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial had held the high position of an Exalted Celestial for a very long time. For Qin Yu to offend him, he naturally needed to make reprisals.
And now, he was scared.
"You also know that you're guilty?" Lin Meng said indifferently. "Good. In that case, Zhou An, I would not give too great of a punishment to you. From now on, I shall strip you of your Exalted Celestial status and destroy all of your martial cultivation prowess, allowing you to reincarnate. As for whether you'll be a man or an animal and what sort of accomplishment you'll make after your reincarnation, it will all depend on your luck."
Once these words were said.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was immediately stunned.
Qin Yu sighed in his heart: 'According to Second Brother's intent, this Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial would lose all of his martial cultivation prowess. In that case, he would likely experience countless calamities in the future."
"No, master, master, didn't you said back then that our Zhou Clan is destined to always have an Exalted Celestial? How could you strip me of my Exalted Celestial status? Why?" The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was unable to accept it.
Lin Meng's expression turned cold. "Your Zhou Clan is indeed destined to always have an Exalted Celestial. However, it does not signify that it would forever be you. You, Zhou An, only possess two Grand Kalpas worth of fate to be an Exalted Celestial. Now that two Grand Kalpas have passed, your fate of being an Exalted Celestial has already reached its end!"
After the New Cosmos finished forming, Qin Yu came to know a lot.
Grand Kalpas was a method of time calculation. Every six quadrillion years was a single Grand Kalpa.
Lin Meng continued. "As for your Zhou Clan, not long after you fall, that youth Zhou Qing will become the first person who managed to comprehend Time Reversal by himself in my Lin Meng Cosmos."
"Comprehend Time Reversal by himself? No wonder Second Brother had me give the Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl to him." Beside him, Qin Yu was also shocked. Qin Yu knew very well that the creator of the Cosmos controlled everything that happened in the Cosmos.
The creator could figure out even the fates of everyone in the Cosmos.
However, because this was Lin Meng's Cosmos, Qin Yu was unable to determine the fate of that Zhou Qing. Yet, Lin Meng was able to.
"Zhou Qing? No, how could it be him? The Zhou Clan's Exalted Celestial ought to be me." The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was unable to accept it.
Lin Meng coldly humped and waved his hand. "No…" Right after the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial's terrified voice sounded, he was immediately turned into dust. Only a dot of light disappeared into the heaven and earth.
The three Exalted Celestials below were all quaking in fear.
Actually, to people of Qin Yu and Lin Meng's level, the Exalted Celestial could not be considered as anything. The two of them were both capable of making anyone into their Cosmos's Exalted Celestial.
After the matter with the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was settled and they finished eating, Qin Yu and Lin Meng proceeded to walk alongside each other in the White Cloud Palace.
"Qin Yu, now that your Cosmos was completed, it should be about time for you to go see Big Brother." Lin Meng said with a smile.
Qin Yu had also frequently thought about it in his heart. 'Second Brother is Lin Meng, who is the Big Brother?' There was a lot of things regarding the outside world that Qin Yu did not know about. However, based on what Lin Meng had said, this Big Brother ought to be living in the Grandmist Space.
In the past, Qin Yu was unable to enter the Grandmist Space at all. Now that the New Cosmos was completed, Qin Yu was able to easily enter the Grandmist Space.
Inside the Grandmist Space.
Countless amounts of Grandmist Spiritual Energies were slowly moving about. Qin Yu and Lin Meng were flying alongside each other. Wherever they moved to, the Grandmist Spiritual Energies naturally opened up a path for them.
The Grandmist Space is boundless. As for Qin Yu and Lin Meng, they were talking cheerfully and wittily as they flew.
"Second Brother, I know that when I reached the Black Hole stage in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, I had heard someone say 'Little Friend, we're waiting for you.' Is that you and Big Brother? Furthermore, there's the 'My path is not alone'…" QinYu said with a smile.
This question was something that Qin Yu was thinking for the entire time.
Lin Meng started laughing. "You're talking about that? That's right, it's indeed something that Big Brother and I had made. Back then, the two of us were truly too overjoyed. Neither Big Brother nor I had ever thought there to be someone that was capable of connecting with the Grandmist Space. When you managed to connect with the Grandmist Space, even if your martial technique ended up in an imperfection, Big Brother and I would still be able to help you. However, you were amazing. Step by step, you've walked over with your own strength and attained the most perfect state."
Qin Yu smiled.
"Qin Yu, it is impossible for you to imagine how overjoyed Big Brother and I were. The amount of time I've waited could still be considered as being brief. It was merely a bit over two Grand Kalpas. As for Big Brother, he had waited over a thousand Grand Kalpas! The two of us had both hoped there to be more kindred spirits. After all, we have been lonely for too long." Lin Meng said with a sigh.
Qin Yu quaked in fear.
Over a thousand Grand Kalpas? A single Grand Kalpas was six quadrillion years. Over a thousand Grand Kalpas, how long was that?
That Big Brother, he had been alone for a truly long time.
"Second Brother Lin Meng, according to what you had said, there ought to only be three Cosmos in the entire Grandmist Space?" Qin Yu said.
Lin Meng nodded and said. "That's right. There are only three Cosmos. The Cosmos Big Brother created was the oldest. The Cosmos I've created was two Grand Kalpas old. As for yours, hehe… I reckon you have yet to create even life on there, right?"
Qin Yu nodded. "That's right, I still didn't have the time to do that yet."
"There's no need to worry about that. However, Qin Yu. To be honest, both Big Brother and I deeply admire you." Lin Meng gasped and said.
"Oh? Admire me?" Qin Yu was a bit shocked.
Lin Meng smiled and said. "You don't know about this but back then I had managed to attain a Grandmist Body through cultivation. After that, I broke through the membrane separating the Cosmos I was from through my attack power and charged into the Grandmist Space. After that, I encountered Big Brother. Only through the guidance from Big Brother did I manage to create my Cosmos."
"As for Big Brother, he is the first life in the entire Grandmist Space, a life created by the Grandmist Space. A very long time after his birth, he managed to learn how to create a Cosmos and life."
"Big Brother possessed immense talent and was the first life in the Grandmist Space. Thus, it is also nothing special for him to be able to create Cosmos. However, what about me? I am merely someone who had managed to rush out from my original Cosmos. Yet you… without the assistance from Big Brother and I, you managed to perfectly create a Cosmos on your own. Say, for you to be able to do such a thing, how could Big Brother and I not admire you?"
Qin Yu smiled.
However, Qin Yu also knew that the Grandmist Space was extremely dangerous. Only through managing to train one's body into a Grandmist Body, in which case one's body would be fused together with the Grandmist Spiritual Energy, one would not be harmed in the Grandmist Space, since the body would be the same as Grandmist Spiritual Energy. The other method was to obtain an Indestructible Dark Yellow Body. With such a body, one could resist the oppression from the Grandmist Space.
Even the Exalted Celestials did not possess the ability to enter into the Grandmist Space.
Currently, in the entire Cosmos, the people that were capable of entering into the Grandmist Space were only Qin Yu, Lin Meng and that Big Brother.
"Oh, that's right. Second Brother, when the Exalted Celestial Mountain descended in the Lin Meng Cosmos, why did you select Chehou Yuan as the new Exalted Celestial? Could it be that he possessed a very high amount of virtue?" Qin Yu asked.
Qin Yu did not understand why Lin Meng had selected Chehou Yuan.
"Chehou Yuan. Sigh, mentioning of Chehou Yuan, to be honest, he was greatly wronged." Lin Meng sighed.
"Wronged?" Qin Yu was surprised.
