“You’re very strong.” The leader of the Enforcers, Wen Feng, looked at Qin Yu and said.
“You’re not bad yourself.” Qin Yu’s swept his gaze at the five people behind Wen Feng and nodded slightly. “The Enforcers truly lived up to their name. No wonder you’re capable of causing those sinister people to fear unceasingly.”
The five Enforcers behind Wen Feng all looked to Qin Yu. Their gazes were extremely cold.
At this moment, Elder Liu Tong immediately spoke with a light laugh. ”I am the Elder of the Deep Mulberry Star, Liu Tong. This person is the Interstellar Cultivator, Lord Liu Xing. Lord Liu Xing is currently also a person of our Deep Mulberry Star.”
“Interstellar Cultivator!” Wen Feng repeated the words. He then placed his left fist on his right chest. Respectfully, he said. “Wen Feng thanks Liu Xing for killing the seven star Emperor level Metal Beast.” The five other Enforcers behind Wen Feng also saluted to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu lightly smiled and said. “It is merely a very slight effort. Oh, that’s right. At the moment when I killed that seven star Emperor level Metal Beast, that Metal Beast had sent a voice transmission to threaten me. He was saying that if I killed him, then his brothers would return to avenge him.”
Enforcer Wen Feng’s lips were slightly raised. It appeared as if he had a slight smile on his face. “That seven star Emperor level Metal Beast must have most likely been mistaken with his plan. I reckon that even if his two brothers were to join hands, they’ll still be no match against you, Liu Xing.”
[ED: More like joining paws…XD]
Qin Yu merely slightly nod his head.
The reason why he stayed on the Deep Mulberry Star for a couple more days was because he was worried about that seven star Emperor level Metal Beast’s brothers coming to the Deep Mulberry Star and retaliating against the people of the Deep Mulberry Star. According to Qin Yu’s estimation, if those brothers of that seven star Emperor level Metal Beast were to come for revenge, it’ll happen in these couple of days.
Now that the Enforcers have arrived. Furthermore, looking at their strength, they are definitely able to take care of the two surviving Metal Beasts. Qin Yu also did not worry about it or staying on the Deep Mulberry Star any longer.
“Lord Enforcer, please come inside and rest.” Elder Liu Tong immediately said. Amongst this group of people, he, Elder Liu Tong, was the weakest.
Elder Liu Tong knew very well that the Enforcers were a violent force that chases to kill those sinister people who causes destruction to the Dark Star Realm. Thus, the Enforcers were even more blood-thirsty compared to those sinister and blood-thirsty people!
Inside the inner palace of the Elder’s Palace.
“Elder Liu Tong, these three Emperor level Metal Beasts first appeared on the Origin Movement Planet located to the north, the Oh’Esteemed Star. They massacred all of the several tens of thousands of people on the Oh’Esteemed Star. Even the Elder of the Oh’Esteemed Star was killed. Afterwards, we Enforcers were dispatched. We were separated into three squadrons. However, we did not anticipate for the three Emperor level Metal Beasts to be that powerful. When the three Emperor level Metal Beasts destroyed another Origin Movement Planet, one of our small Enforcer Squadron managed to intercept these three Emperor level Metal Beasts.”
In the palace, Wen Feng was carefully presenting what had happened. “Merely, at that time, the people that we dispatched were not strong. The strongest amongst that Enforcer Squadron was merely a ten star Emperor. Of that small squadron of six, three were killed and three fled. However, the captain of that squadron, the ten star Emperor, had already deduced that the strongest amongst those three Metal Beasts is around twelve star Emperor level. Of course… that does not eliminate the fact that that Emperor level Metal Beast might be concealing its strength.”
When Liu Tong heard all these, his heart was overwhelmed with horror.
Never had he anticipated that two Origin Movement Planets had already been massacred into extinction. Had it not been for Qin Yu, then his Deep Mulberry Star would have became the third.
“It should not be hiding its strength. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have let three of your men escape.” Qin Yu determined.
Wen Feng who was wearing a silver mask cast his gaze to Qin Yu. He nodded and said. “I also believe that to be the case. Furthermore, we have managed to determine the strength of the other two Metal Beasts. One of them is ten star Emperor level whereas the other is seven star Emperor level. Those are absolutely certain. No matter how powerful the last one might be, it would not be much stronger than those two.”
“Liu Xing, you said… that before that seven star Emperor level Metal Beast died, it had once tried to threaten you saying that its brothers would come to avenge him?” Wen Feng looked to Qin Yu and asked.
“That’s right.” Qin Yu nodded. “Rest assured, had those two Emperor level Metal Beast appeared, then I would have been the first one to discover them.”
Currently, Qin Yu’s Immortal Awareness had covered the entire Deep Mulberry Star. With Qin Yu’s current Immortal Awareness, covering the entire Deep Mulberry Star nonstop would not affect him in the slightest.
“You all go rest first.” Wen Feng said to his subordinates.
“Yes, Your Lordship.” The five Enforcers said as they saluted. Immediately after, they left the main hall of the palace. And at this moment, Wen Feng’s gaze was shot toward Elder Liu Tong. Elder Liu Tu also tactfully departed the main hall. Immediately, only Qin Yu and Wen Feng remained in the main hall.
Wen Feng looked to Qin Yu. The mask on his face had instantly disappeared.
Qin Yu was unable to refrain himself from opening his eyes wide.
This Wen Feng’s appearance had indeed caused Qin Yu to be shocked. Never had he thought that someone from the Dark Star Realm would have an appearance similar to that of someone from the Demon Realm… A third eye!
To be more exact, there was a closed crack on Wen Feng’s forehead. Qin Yu was able to tell with his Immortal Awareness that inside that crack was an eye.
“Liu Xing, your strength is sufficient for me to unmask myself. Let me introduce myself first. I am called Wen Feng, the newly appointed great captain of the Enforcers, a fifteen star Emperor level expert.” A hard to come by smile appeared on Wen Feng’s face.
Qin Yu was unable to determine what the purpose of this Wen Feng in front of him was.
“I am called Liu Xing, an ordinary Interstellar Cultivator.” Qin Yu casually introduced himself.
“Someone that even I, Wen Feng, am unable to see through is an ordinary Interstellar Cultivator? A while back, the Sacred Planet had even called for a summon of all the fifteen star or higher Emperor level experts of the Gold Punishment Sect to assume the position as the leader of our Dark Star Realm’s Three Great Sovereigns… Gold Punishment Lord. I am confused… with your strength, why have you not gone to the Sacred Planet?” Wen Feng asked straightforwardly.
Dark Star Realm’s Three Great Sovereigns, it was a position that everyone yearned for. Furthermore, the Gold Punishment Lord is the leader amongst the Three Great Sovereigns. The status of the Gold Punishment Lord is even more reverend!
Qin Yu smiled and said. “Let’s not talk about me, what about you then? From the way I see it, you’ve also reached fifteen star Emperor level. However, why haven’t you gone and become the Gold Punishment Lord and instead became the great captain of the Enforcers?”
Regarding this, Qin Yu was incomparably confused.
Wen Feng had a self-mocking smile. “Did you think that I didn’t want to become the Gold Punishment Lord? The Gold Punishment Lord, the leader of the Three Great Sovereigns, oh how revered that status was…”
“The Emperor level Metal Beasts have arrived.”
Qin Yu suddenly interrupted Wen Feng.
Wen Feng also stopped talking. The two of them took a glance at each other. Almost simultaneously, the two of them disappeared into thin air.
A vicious bird with an entire body composed of blue colored metal was currently circling around the sky. This vicious bird was precisely the Metal Beast that had reached ten star Emperor level. It was currently hesitating… as to whether or not to eliminate the Deep Mulberry Star.
“Second brother, quickly, flee. There’s expert here.” A voice sounded in this vicious bird’s mind.
The vicious bird also felt its heart shaking in fear. “Not good, there’s danger here.” However, right at the moment when it was prepared to use Greater Teleportation to run away, a hand suddenly appeared in the air and grabbed onto its neck.
“Little bird, you’re still trying to flee?” A voice with a trace of mocking tone was heard.
The vicious bird turned it head to the side to look. The person who grabbed his neck was a smiling youth. This youth was standing in the middle of the sky. This vicious bird did not know at all that a couple days ago, its third brother was also caught by the neck by the same person.
At this moment, another figure appeared beside Qin Yu. It was Wen Feng.
“We’ve let it escape.” Wen Feng’s expression was a bit ugly. “That twelve star Emperor level Metal Beast is hiding in the cosmic space. It had also set up a formation array around itself causing me to be unable to directly teleport over to it.”
“Formation array? Metal Beasts also know formation arrays?” Qin Yu was slightly shocked.
Wen Feng had a self mocking smile. “Who knows, it’s also my first time seeing one. However, there had also been powerful Emperor level Metal Beasts setting up formation arrays in the records of history. As they possess the intelligence of humans, it is not impossible for them to set up formation arrays.”
“It’s best for you all to let me free. Otherwise, my big brother would definitely come and kill you all.” That vicious bird actually spoke human language from its mouth.
Qin Yu started laughing. “Hey, little bird, did you know that a couple days ago, that seven star Emperor level Metal Beast was also captured by me like this. When I was about to kill it, he had also threatened me with the same words.”
“It’s you who’ve killed my third brother.” That vicious bird firmly stared at Qin Yu.
However, the vicious bird discovered that after having its neck grabbed by Qin Yu, the Golden Core within its body had been completely wrapped up by Qin Yu’s Gold Force. It was unable to use even the slightest amount of its energy at all.
“Wen Feng, even if that twelve star Emperor level Metal Beast was to be in the formation array, you should also be able to capture it.” Said Qin Yu in confusion.
Afterall, Wen Feng was a fifteen star Emperor level expert.
Wen Feng shook his head and said. “As it was in the formation array, I was unable to use Greater Teleportation to teleport to it. In a blink of an eye, that twelve star Emperor level Metal Beast had left the great formation array from the other side and fled.”
“How shall we take care of this little bird?” Qin Yu looked to Wen Feng.
“However you want. All’s good as long as you killed it. The Golden Core and the corpse is naturally yours.” Said Wen Feng casually.
As if it had sensed its doomsday coming, that vicious bird looked to Qin Yu in dismay. “Your Lordship, please spare my life. As long as you spare my life, I would do anything you want me to do.”
“It indeed has a human level intelligence.” Qin Yu gasped in admiration.
Would he spare it? Qin Yu still remembered that the Enforcer leader Wen Feng had said that these three Metal Beasts had massacred two Origin Movement Planets. Such cruel and savage Metal Beasts, how could he possibly spare their lives?
Qin Yu’s fingers slightly squeezed.
A sound like metal breaking sounded. That ten star Emperor level Metal Beast’s neck was completely snapped off. Its Golden Core had also been taken out by Qin Yu.
“Wen Feng, what I had asked you earlier, you still haven’t given me an answer. Weren’t you a fifteen star Emperor level expert? How come you didn’t become the next Gold Punishment Lord?” Qin Yu was still concerned about this question.
Wen Feng shook his head and smiled helplessly. “I too had once wanted to become the Gold Punishment Lord. That’s why I had tried my best in training myself. Half a year ago, I had finally managed to attain a breakthrough and became a fifteen star Emperor. However, only when I returned to the Sacred Planet did I found out that… a super expert had already returned to the Sacred Planet. That super expert had already been determined to become the new Gold Punishment Lord. After half a year, they would likely make it public. At that time, I felt a bit helpless. Thus, I assumed the position of the great captain of the Enforcers and decided to chase and kill some people to vent my anger.”
“Never had I expected that you became the great captain of the Enforcers just to vent your anger. Oh, that’s right… you’ve mentioned that the new Gold Punishment Lord had been decided; how strong is that person?” Qin Yu asked.
Wen Feng clenched his fist tightly. He said. “The new Gold Punishment Lord is extremely strong, frighteningly strong!”
Qin Yu was astonished.
For even Wen Feng to say that the new Gold Punishment Lord’s strength is frighteningly strong, exactly how strong was this new Gold Punishment Lord?
“How strong could he get?” Said Qin Yu while smiling. Wen Feng instead replied solemnly. “No, he’s truly extremely powerful. Back then, I was also not convinced as to why he’s the one who should become the new Gold Punishment Lord. Only later did I found out that he’s already an eighteen star Emperor.”
“Eighteen star Emperor!”
Qin Yu was stunned.
Seventeen and eighteen star Emperor level experts usually possess souls at the level of level nine Immortal Emperor. They were people that were about to undergo the Divine Tribulation. For an Eighteen star Emperor level expert to appear, the probability was truly low.
“Eighteen star Emperor, then his bones and muscles were all comparable to High Level Divine Artifacts.” Qin Yu felt a bit terrified in his heart.
Qin Yu suddenly frowned.
How did such an expert suddenly appear out of nowhere? Qin Yu looked to Wen Feng and asked. “Where is this super expert from? How come he would suddenly appear out of nowhere?”
Wen Feng said solemnly. “The eighteenth Dark Star of the Eighteen Emperor Level Trial Dark Stars.”
“Liu Xing, you ought to know that one would be considered as an eighteen star Emperor level expert once one managed to persist on the eighteenth Dark Star for two hours. In all these years, I have never known anyone that would go and train in that eighteenth Dark Star. However… about a year ago, a person suddenly appeared out from the Interstellar Conveying Array that is connected to the eighteenth Dark Star.”
Upon saying to this part, Qin Yu also understood it.
The eighteen Dark Stars all possessed Interstellar Conveying Arrays leading to them. For this person to be able to walk out from the Interstellar Conveying Array that was connected to the eighteenth Dark Star, that person was definitely an eighteen star Emperor level expert.
“Sigh. Who would’ve known that there would be people on the eighteenth Dark Star? Just like that, he suddenly appeared. After he appeared, two months later, another person appeared from the Interstellar Conveying Array that lead to the seventeenth Dark Star.”
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock.
“Another one? This one ought to be a seventeen star Emperor. Seemed like it wasn’t injustice for that Gold Punishment Lord’s position to be taken away from you. That’s right, how come these two super experts suddenly appeared?”
Wen Feng smiled wryly. “How would I know? Based on the records of the Interstellar Conveying Arrays, the last time someone had used the seventeenth and eighteenth Dark Stars Interstellar Conveying Array was several hundred years ago. The majority of the people had thought that those people who had entered to those Dark Stars were crushed to pieces by the gravity and died. Who would’ve known that they’ll appear again after all these years.”
Qin Yu nodded and said jokingly. “Indeed, it’s quite terrifying. If tens or twenty people were to walk out from that eighteenth Dark Star that day, just imagine what sort of scene that would be.”
Hearing Qin Yu’s words, Wei Feng grew numb from head to toe.
“Rarely does anyone enter the seventeenth and eighteenth Emperor level Dark Stars. Likewise… no one knew whether or not there are any super experts training themselves on those two Dark Stars.” Wen Feng sighed.
Qin Yu nodded.
“Mn, it’s time for me to go to the eighteen Emperor level Trial Dark Stars.” Thought Qin Yu.
