“Have you all heard of him?” Asked Qin Yu who grew a bit impatient.
Meng Hong thought for a bit but still shook his head. He said to Qin Yu. “Qin Yu, I’ve never heard of a Divine Beast called Hei Yu appearing within the Bird Clan in the past two hundred years.”
Seeing that Qin Yu was a bit disappointed, Meng Hong continued. “You should ask Wuming, he’s the Prince of the Dragon Clan and the Dragon Clan’s territory was next to the Bird Clan’s. He knows more than me, maybe he would know.”
Qin Yu firmly looked toward Ao Wuming. Ao Wuming started to helplessly shake his head. “Qin Yu, you said that that Hei Yu was at least a Top Level Divine Beast? And he’s also just recently ascend to here within the past two hundred years?”
“Right, at the very least he’s a Top Level Divine Beast.” Qin Yu nodded continously.
Xiao Hei possessed inherited memories, this signifies that Xiao Hei was at the least a Top Level Divine Beast. He might even be a Super Divine Beast.
“You also said that he’s a black eagle?” Ao Wuming had a slight smile on his face.
Qin Yu nodded.
“Qin Yu, let me tell you… the amount of Super Divine Beast was extremely sparse. As for Top Level Divine Beasts, they’re also sparse. If that Hei Yu was a Top Level Divine Beast that ascended within the last two hundred years, then I would most certainly know about it!” Said Ao Wuming decisively. “However, I had never heard that there’s a Top Level Divine Beast named Hei Yu ascended here within the last two hundred years.”
Qin Yu was slightly startled. However, he suddenly came to realization and hurriedly asked. “Perhaps… perhaps he’s concealing his name?”
“That is also possible.” Ao Wuming loosened his firm expression. “According to the information that my Dragon Clan possess, there’s three Top Level Divine Beasts that ascended to the Bird Clan. One of them was a Hong Luan, the other is from the Peng Clan and the last was from the Crane Clan. There wasn’t any from the Eagle Clan.”
“Therefore, the Top Level Divine Beast you spoke of was simply nonexistent.” Ao Wuming once again cut off Qin Yu’s hope.
Qin Yu felt a headache.
His heart began to feel somewhat jittery. Unable to help himself, he frowned.
“That shouldn’t be the case, Xiao Hei ascended at the same time as Fei Fei. Fei Fei ascended into the territory of the Beast Clan, then why isn’t there any news regarding Xiao Hei? Xiao Hei possessed inherited memories, and that was absolutely certain. So why?”
Qin Yu head was like being shocked by electricity. He’s also extremely anxious.
Xiao Hei was the only person Qin Yu had with him growing up. Their relationship was very deep. Ao Wuming’s speech caused Qin yu to have an indescribable panicky feeling from the bottom of his heart. He believed that Ao Wuming would certainly not lie to him.
And the grand Dragon Clan would certainly not had mistaken the information.
“Ah, could Hei Yu be a Super Divine Beast?” Asked Qin Yu.
Meng Hong who stood on the side started to laugh loudly. “Haha… brother Qin Yu, let me tell you. There’s four types of Super Divine Beasts within the Bird Clan. Two types were from the Peng Clan. The other two are the Seven Colored Peacock and the Phoenix. There’s certainly not Black Eagle.”
Ao Wuming also nodded. “Qin Yu, if a Super Divine Beast were to appear in the Bird clan, then how would I not know of it? Let me tell you, there’s only a single Super Divine Beast emerging within the the Bird Clan. It’s a Golden Winged Peng of the Peng Clan. His name is Zong Jue.”
“Zong Jue.” Qin Yu understood everything.
The top individual of the Mortal Realm’s Chaotic Astral Ocean, the Island Master of the Devil Peng Island, Zong Jue. Qin Yu naturally knew of him.
“There’s absolutely no other Super Divine Beast other than that Zong Jue.” Ao Wuming said certainly. “Besides, there had never been a Super Divine Beast from the Eagle Clan. Unless the Eagle Clan were to be super lucky and had a Variant Super Divine Beast appearing in their ranks.”
Qin Yu’s eyes shined.
Xiao Hei had the appearance of a Black Eagle. He’s not a Peng, Peacock or Phoenix. Maybe he’s a Variant Divine Beast of the Eagle Clan.
“Qin Yu, you should stop overthinking it. Super Divine Beasts are very rare. For a special Variant Divine Beast to appear, that’s much harder to come by. In the whole history of my Dragon Clan, only my big brother was a Blood Dragon.” When Ao Wuming mentioned his big brother, his expression grew sullen.
“The only Blood Dragon in the Dragon Clan’s history?” Jun Luoyu was surprised.
How many years had the Dragon Clan been in existence?
Not many people know. However, it’s certainly an enormous amount of years. However, in all those years, there’s only a single Blood Dragon’s emergence.
“Even if he’s a Variant Divine Beast, then regardless if he’s a Top Level Divine Beast or a Super Level Divine Beast, it’s impossible for him to be unknown… if he were to exist, then my Dragon Clan ought to know. However, we do not know about him.”
Ao Wuming’s words were like Heavenly Thunders striking directly on Qin Yu’s head.
“What exactly happened to Xiao Hei?”
Qin Yu was continuously thinking and immediately grew very worried. His second brother Hou Fei had the Great Ape Emperor of the Dual Emperor of the Beast Clan looking after him. This allowed Qin Yu to feel very at ease. However, what about Xiao Hei?
“This…” Seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Ao Wuming, Jun Luoyu and Meng Hong became lost at to what to say.
They were all able to tell that Qin Yu was very concerned about this Hei Yu.
“Qin Yu, perhaps some of the people within my Dragon Clan were slacking off and didn’t gather all the information of the Bird Clan. Furthermore, the territory of the Bird Clan was extremely large, it’s about as large as the Immortal Realm. In such a large territory, perhaps somewhere in it was Hei Yu.” Ao Wuming went to console Qin Yu.
Qin Yu took a deep breath and then slowly exhale.
“It’s alright, don’t worry, I’m fine.” Although Qin Yu said those words, they were still able to see that his complexion was somewhat pale.
“Come, let’s drink.”
Said Meng Hong loudly. Immediately after the four started to drink again. The atmosphere in the great hall immediately became lively again. Merely that within all the drinking and laughing, in the deepest part of Qin Yu’s eyes were still a hint of worry.
The East Star City was enormous. Qin Yu had never seen such an enormous city before. Even the Blue Flame Star’s city were a lot smaller compared to the East Star City.
Since they had arrived in the Hidden Emperor Star, Qin Yu and Jun Luoyu would not immediately start training in seclusion.
The two of them accompanied Ao Wuming and Meng Hong and began visiting the East Star City. And Jiang Yan who had been in the Wuming Dragon Mansion the whole time also came out of the Immortal Mansion to visit the city together with them.
A party of five were relaxingly strolling the East Star City.
Meng Hong was acting as the guide, he was introducing the surroundings to the four beside him.
“This building is called Heaven Connecting Building. It had nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine floors and is the tallest building in the East Star City. Within the Heaven Connecting Building were casinos, auctions, shopping malls, restaurants, tea houses, and recreation and entertainment facilities.”
Said Meng Hong as he pointed at a tall building that lead all the way to the deepest skies.
From a glance, this Heaven Connecting Building does indeed thrust through the skies. It was impossible to see exactly how tall this Heaven Connecting Build was. However, the extremely tall Heaven Connecting Building would still instill a surge of emotions within those who saw it.
“This several hundred miles long extremely large palace is the Immortal Mansion Theme Park. There’s a lot of fun and interesting things inside. When one’s bored from cultivation, one could enter there and relax one’s body and mind.”
Meng Hong pointed at the enormous Immortal Mansion Theme Park that’s not far away.
The Immortal Mansion Theme Park wasn’t tall. From a glance, one could see numerous strange and mysterious buildings within it. The shorter ones were only a single floor building. As for the taller ones, they’re also nothing more than a couple floors tall. On the walls of the Immortal Mansion Theme Park carved a long drifting dragon.
“This engraving of the Divine Dragon revolve around half the Immortal Mansion Theme Park’s walls. Its length were over a thousand miles.” Meng Hong smiled as he looked toward Ao Wuming. “The powers standing behind the Immortal Mansion Theme Park, amongst them were the Dragon Clan.”
Ao Wuming nodded and laughed. “Fifty percent of the earning from this Immortal Mansion Theme Park goes to my Dragon Clan. At that time, the idea of building this Immortal Mansion Theme Park had come from a cultivator too.”
“Within the Immortal Mansion Theme Park were places for entertainment, excitement, and freight. There’s all sorts of places. Through the strange and exquisite game rules and the arrays of experts to control regulations, various fascinating and wondering places were constructed. Furthermore, there is a place within the Immortal Mansion Theme Park that allows practitioners to become even more intimate with and appreciate the nature.” Ao Wuming was clearly very knowledgeable of this Immortal Mansion Theme Park.
“Intersting, intersting. Let’s go, let’s go there.” Jiang Yan’s eyes were shining.
The couple mens could only force a bitter smile as they followed Jiang Yan to the Immortal Mansion Theme Park.
….. Three whole months passed. Under the guidance of Meng Hong, Qin Yu and them had went to every famous locations within the East Star City. They places were all strange and exquisite; so much that even QIn Yu feel that his mood had changed.
Sometimes, to train doesn’t necessarily need to be in seclusion. This type of sightseeing was also a type of training. This was especially true toward people like Qin Yu who had never really rested.
Within the Wuming Dragon Mansion.
“I had seen so much in the three months, I must say… those cultivators who possessed the strength to overturn seas and rivers, not only are they extremely strong in combat, they’re equally amazing in constructing a city and the various peculiar places within it.” Qin Yu praised.
A building that’s nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine stories tall.
The Immortal Mansion Theme Park that’s several hundred miles wide. The thousand miles long Divine Dragon Carving. While it might be effortless to mention them, however when one really stood in front of them…
Standing under the Heaven Connecting Building as one looked toward the building that pierces through the skies.
Standing in front of the gates of the Immortal Mansion Theme Park as one looked at the unending Divine Dragon Carving.
Standing inside the Sculpture Building and seeing the millions of vivid and lifelike statues.
All in all, those majestic aura was enough to cause people to quake in fear.
So it turns out that… that using the immortal level skills on the field of art was even more awe inspiring. This was the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. A world where Heavenly Immortal, Golden immortal, Heavenly Devil, Devil King, Heavenly Demon, Demon King, and Emperor level experts exist in.
A world that’s far surpassing the mortal realm.
Although this world was bustling and lively, it’s also as cruel and grim.
“Brother Qin Yu, those are the training rooms that I specially constructed within the Immortal Mansion. You and Luoyu can go ahead and pick whichever one you prefer to train in. There will be absolutely no one to disturb you two.” Smiling, Ao Wuming pointed toward a group of training rooms within the Wuming Immortal Mansion.
Ao Wuming didn’t feel at ease to allow Qin Yu and Luoyu train in Meng Hong’s place. That place was after all the outside world. However, this Wuming Dragon Mansion was much safer.
“Thank you big brother Wuming.”
Both Qin Yu and Jun Luoyu thanked him.
“Training in seclusion, training in seclusion, all you know about is training in seclusion.” Jiang Yan had her cheeks puffed up. She stared at Qin Yu and Jun Luoyu with her big eyes. “Who knows how long you’ll be there once you started your seclusion training; I’ll be left all alone.”
“Yan’er, rest assured, I would not be taking a long time. Do you remember how long it took me to reach level two Mystic Immortal? Once I reached level three Mystic Immortal, I’ll come right out. I suspect that I won’t even need a hundred years.” Said Jun Luoyu with a smile.
Qin Yu had finally experienced how outstanding this Genius Immortal Emperor was.
For others, to reach level three Mystic Immortal from level two Mystic Immortal, they would require an immense amount of time. Only this Jun Luoyu dared to say that he would only need a hundred years.
“Luoyu, you’re totally showing off, totally showing off!” Said Ao Wuming detestfully.
Jun Luoyu exposed a forced smile. In reality, he wasn’t showing off at all.
“I suspect the amount of time it takes for me to train would be about the same as brother Luoyu. It might even be a bit shorter.” Said Qin Yu smiling. He had never dared to tell others his cultivation speed.
If he were to tell others that it had only been a dozen or so years since he since he ascended into the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, then Ao Wuming and them would likely be even more astonished.
‘Three in Nine Soul Refinement.’ Training the soul and refining the Nascent Soul to increase its energy. If one were to compare the speed of training, nothing could be faster than this.
“Good, you two, take care and train. As the training time is long and I have no serious matter in my hands, I will be staying in this Hidden Emperor Star for the next hundred years.” Ao Wuming said while laughing.
Immediately after that, Qin Yu and Jun Luoyu each choose a training room and started training in seclusion.
Within a training room of the Wuming Dragon Mansion.
Qin Yu sat cross-legged and motionless on the vine mat. He does not have the dazzling radiance of others’ cultivation. He also didn’t have to engulf any Soul Aura. Qin Yu’s cultivation was like sleeping.
Within the first layer of the Soul’s Soul Space.
Clouds and mist were rolling. Within this boundless Soul Space, Qin Yu was sitting cross legged in mid air. However, his hands were constantly doing the Hand Seals of the Great God. After reaching the Earthly Soul Realm, Qin Yu’s Thirty Six Forms Hand Seals were already different.
Likewise, executing this Thirty Six Forms Hand Seals consume an enormous amount of soul power; so much that Qin Yu smacked his lips.
Right after Qin Yu did a hand seal, he sensed that the energy within his soul were being franticly consumed. Qin Yu could only slowly do the hand seals. After doing two or three hand seals, he felt that he had to wait for his soul to replenish its energy become he could continue.
In order to completely execute the Thirty Six Forms Hand Seals, the amount of time Qin Yu needed was extremely long.
However, the effect was also extremely good. Qin Yu could feel that his soul were maturing at a continuous speed.
In order to the soul to transform, there’s three methods. They correspond to the three types of cultivation experts.
The first method was to slowly let the soul progress with the passing of time. This method was extremely slow but very stable. The reason why many experts had cultivated for millions or even tens of millions of years was precisely this reason.
This method was very slow in increasing the expert’s soul level.
The second method — Enlightenment.
Enlightenment were to let the soul achieve a profound state. Under that state, the soul would mature at a frightening speed. However, that state were something that can only be discovered but not sought.
Experts using this method, their cultivation speed were usually slow but were extremely fast at the moment of enlightenment.
The third method were something that only some special group of talented individuals possess. They were usually known as — Genius!
These people doesn’t need enlightenment but their soul cultivation speed were always fast. Although their soul improvement speed were not as fast as those in the moment of enlightenment, but they’re many times faster than those who use the first method.
Jun Luoyu belonged to this category. He was also the most excellent people in the third category. There’s many geniuses within the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, a genius who achieved level two Mystic Immortal within a couple hundred years was a genius amongst geniuses.
As for Qin Yu…
He doesn’t belong to any of the categories. His soul improvement speed was even faster than Jun Luoyu.
Time flew by. A year after another. The outside world was constantly changing. Within the training room, the amount of dust that covered Qin Yu were also continuously increasing…
Training within the Soul Space, Qin Yu was completely unable to sense the passing of time. He was only able to sense that his training had born fruit and that the Meteor Tear’s Great God’s Thirty Six Forms Hand Seals were a slightly easier to execute.
In the past, his soul strength only had the energy to execute two Hand Seals at once. However now, he could execute eight Hand Seals at once. And Qin Yu was still training hard. As for how many years had passed in the outside world, Qin Yu was completely unaware. He continued to be immerse in training…
