Qin Yu walked into the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Building.
Like before, the triangular prism shaped crystal pillar located on top of the entrance of the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Building immediately discovered Qin Yu’s strength. The familiar ‘ding’ sound echoed through the lounge. Even the noise of the people eating had immediately turned into silence.
When that sound rung , it signified that an advanced Emperor level expert had arrived!
In the middle of the lounge was a Conveying Array. Beside that Conveying Array was an Elder. This elder’s job was precisely handling all the affairs regarding the ‘Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star.’
“Quiet.” This Elder shouted to the people in the dining area. He then walked to Qin Yu. Respectfully, he said. “Your Lordship, I am the Elder in charge of all affairs regarding the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, Elder Zhi Qiao.”
“I am Liu Xing.” Qin Yu nodded and said.
“Might Your Lordship want to enjoy a meal and rest here or could it be that Your Lordship wants to enter the Dark Star to train?” Elder Zhi Qiao asked. However, Zhi Qiao was a bit shocked. ‘It’s another super expert that I’ve never heard of before. It’s already the second one today.’
“I wish to enter the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star and train.” Said Qin Yu tranquilly.
Once Qin Yu said those words, many people beside him immediately started to discuss among themselves.
“It’s another one going to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star to train! There had already been one earlier. And now, another one had appeared. How did the Gold Punishment Sect have so many experts?”
“Fourteen star Emperor level. Forget about fourteen star Emperor level, if I were able to reach one star Emperor level, I’d already be thanking the heavens and earth.”
Upon hearing what those group of people were saying, Qin Yu was surprised. “Mn? Someone had already entered the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star today?”
“Lord Liu Xing, this is all the key information regarding training in the Dark Star. Your Lordship, please look over it.” That Elder Zhi Qiao handed a jade slip over to Qin Yu. Qin Yu received the jade slip and ran his Spiritual Awareness over it.
Although this jade slip was very small, it contained within it a lot of information.
Upon looking through it, Qin Yu learned a lot of the information regarding the Trial.
First of all, in order to enter the Trial Dark Stars, one must use their Stellar Identity Crystal. Earlier, when Qin Yu stepped through the entrance, the reason why the triangular prism shaped crystal pillar shined was that it was inspecting Qin Yu’s Stellar Identity Crystal.
Furthermore, in order to enter the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, one must have the proof that one possesses the strength of a thirteen star Emperor.
The proof of this strength is through successfully passing the trial on the Thirteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. Once successful, one would be granted a Thirteen Star Emperor Level Title Plate.
Of course, as Qin Yu was determined to be an advanced level Emperor level expert through the inspection, he was at the very least a thirteen star Emperor. Thus, there was no need for him to have the Thirteen Star Emperor Level Title Plate. Furthermore, if Qin Yu were to successfully train on the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, then he would be granted a Fourteen Star Emperor Level Title Plate.
Other than this, the jade slip in Qin Yu’s hand also contained some information that one must know when training on the Dark Star Realm. Of course… Qin Yu was also able to eat, drink and rest here for free.
“Elder Zhi Qiao.” Qin Yu put away the jade slip. With a smile, he asked. “I’ve heard that not long ago someone had entered into the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star?”
They’re all extraordinary experts.
Elder Zhi Qiao gasped in his heart. He said. “That’s right. There had indeed been a person entering the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star not long ago. Haha. I’ve been here all this time, sometimes, I would not even receive a single visitor proceeding to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. Yet, today, I received two visitors at once.”
“Well then, please start the Conveying Array.” Said Qin Yu.
Immediately after, Qin Yu walked into the center of the Conveying Array.
“Please wait a moment.” Elder Zhi Qiao walked to the front of Qin Yu. He raised his hand, pointed it toward the Conveying Array and then a white colored energy was shot out from his hand and poured into the Conveying Array. Immediately after, the Conveying Array started to shine.
At this moment, several hundred people had surrounded Qin Yu and were watching him. Within their eyes as… envy and adoration!
“Your Lordship, please be careful.” Seeing Qin Yu standing so proudly like that, Elder Zhi Qiao was unable to refrain from reminding him to be more careful.
Qin Yu lightly smiled and shook his head.
Elder Zhi Qiao gasped in his heart. “What a relaxed and careless attitude.”
After the radiance of the light covered the entire Conveying Array, it disappeared after a short period of time. Qin Yu had also disappeared with the light. The surrounding cultivators started to grow noisy again. In merely a single day, two people had gone to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. That was certainly something worthy to be discussed.
Qin Yu knew his own strength very well. With merely his own bones, he was certain that they were definitely able to compare with a fifteen star Emperor level expert. However, if he were to compare his muscles instead, then it was likely that Qin Yu would be inferior to even a fourteen star Emperor level expert.
Qin Yu decided to come to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star precisely to train his muscles.
Qin Yu saw a flash pass by his eyes. Following the flash, a desolate world appeared before him. However, before he was able to clearly inspect his surroundings, he felt an extremely powerful and terrifying pressure engulfing his entire body.
Qin Yu kneeled onto the ground with a crash. His knee was smashed onto the ground. His hands were also on the ground.
“What’s happening?” Qin Yu felt that his entire body’s muscles were shivering. Both the muscles inside and outside. It was as if all his cells were being shattered to pieces. The terrifying gravity caused his cells to be unable to maintain their original form and start to collapse.
“Sss sss~~~” Qin Yu’s skin started to rupture. The crimson colored veins and arteries were exposed. His crimson colored muscles lumps were clearly visible. However, his muscles were still slowly being ripped apart.
Qin Yu was feeling a pain that penetrated through his soul!
This pain came not from merely the ruptures of skins and muscles. Instead, it was the collapse of the cells that existed in the depths of the skins and muscles. Even his heart, lungs and other organs were starting to slowly collapse. It was the ultimate pain!
“It’s someone who had overestimated his abilities. He actually dared to come to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star without training on the Thirteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star till he reached a sufficient level.” A cold voice sounded from nearby.
With great difficulty, Qin Yu turned his head toward that voice.
It was a robust youth whose situation was currently a bit better than him. Compared with Qin Yu… that youth’s skin had also ruptured. However, his muscles were still alright. Merely, that youth’s entire body was giving off a crackle sound.
This youth was also kneeling on the ground on one knee. His hands were also pushed against the ground.
“You are not much better off than me.” Qin Yu tried his hardest to say those words. However, at this moment, the muscles in his throat were causing him immense pain.
Qin Yu knew very well in his heart that there was still some gap between his muscles and the muscles of a fourteen star Emperor. However, the gap shouldn’t be large. Had the gap been larger, then it was likely that his entire body’s muscles would’ve been crushed into fine dust instantly.
However, Qin Yu’s bones had reached fifteen star Emperor level. On this Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, his bones were still pretty relaxed. However, that youth located not far from him was currently experiencing an immense pressure on his bones, causing his bones to give off a crackle and rattle sound.
“There’s Gold Attribute Energy here?” Qin Yu’s Soul’s Power managed to sense the energy here.
“The seniors of the Dark Star Realm had most definitely prepared these Conversion Arrays for their descendants.” Qin Yu understood it clearly in his heart. Immediately, he began to absorb the Gold Attribute Energy.
Qin Yu continued to kneel on one leg. He strived his hardest to crawl three steps forward and out from the range of the Conveying Array. Afterwards, he sat down on the ground cross-legged.
The situation of his muscles was still not too bad. Although the weak muscles like his skin had ruptured, the Life Elemental Energy hidden in every single cell of Qin Yu’s body was restoring his body at a terrifying speed.
Skin ruptured, restored!
Slowly, his muscles ripped apart; once again, the Life Elemental Energy restored them!
The Life Elemental Energy was also slowly transforming Qin Yu’s muscles. As for Qin Yu, he was currently absorbing the Gold Attribute Energy unceasingly. He was increasing the toughness of his muscles with a frightening speed.
Once Qin Yu sat down, he sat down for an entire year.
A year later, Qin Yu opened his eyes.
“My muscles have reached the fourteen star Emperor level now.” With a push from his hands, Qin Yu stood up. At the moment when Qin Yu stood up, a voice sounded…. “Eh? You’ve succeeded in the training?”
Qin Yu looked to the direction where the voice sounded from. Not far away from Qin Yu, at a location about ten meters away, a naked man sat cross-legged with only his shorts on.
Not only that person, Qin Yu was also only wearing shorts created by the Gold Attribute Energy. His upper body and his thighs were all bare. Even his feet were bare.
After all, in a circumstance where his skin had ruptured and his blood was flowing unceasingly, it was very uncomfortable to wear clothes.
“Didn’t you say that I was overestimating my capabilities?” Said Qin Yu while smiling.
That robust man also tried his hardest to stand up. However, his skin would still occasionally burst open a small crack. That robust man laughed to Qin Yu. “In that case, I shall apologize to you. However, you’re truly amazing. In merely a single year, you’ve managed to stand on this Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star without the slightest amount of damage being done to you.”
Qin Yu knew very well in his heart that the reason why he was able to succeed so fast was most definitely because of the Life Elemental Energy.
“Let me introduce myself. I am called Meng Long!” Said that robust man with a grin.
“I am Liu Xing.” Qin Yu replied.
Meng Long nodded. He then said. “You should continue training. However, this time around, you don’t need to be too anxious. A year ago when you first came out of the Conveying Array, I was able to clearly tell that your muscles had not reached a level where you could endure the fourteen star Emperor level. At that time, I thought that you would immediately run back. Who would’ve expected that you were actually able to persist until today and even succeeded.”
“I was not careful enough last time around. This time around, I will pay more attention. Meng Long, I shall go and train first.” Said Qin Yu while smiling.
Meng Long nodded. He then immediately sat back down in a cross-legged position. Actually, earlier, when he was standing up on his two legs, the pressure on his bones was truly too great…. His bones were currently still unable to bear that terrifying pressure standing up.
As for Qin Yu, he was currently walking at a slow speed like ‘taking a stroll.’
“It’s been a long time since I’ve felt such a state of reaching my limits.” Qin Yu felt that his entire body seemed to have received an extremely frightening pressure. “According to the descriptions of master’s Science and Technology Universe, on Dark Stars like the White Dwarf and Neutron Star, that possess a terrifying level of gravitational force, a matter of a cubic centimeter was comparable in weight to a large mountain. However, this is the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. It is a cosmic space of a higher stage than the Mortal Realm. The Dark Stars here seem to be different from the Dark Stars in the Mortal Realm.”
Qin Yu looked at the ground under his foot.
It was indeed different.
According to Qin Yu’s understanding. The Dark Stars in the Mortal Realm’s Science and Technology Universe ought to be formed by the later stage of a star. Furthermore, a neutron star could even be considered as a complete giant atomic nucleus.
“Science and technology? It seems to be impossible to me.” Qin Yu smiled as he walked on this Dark Star.
Of the eighteen Emperor level Dark Stars, this was the fourteenth. Its gravitational force ought to be considered as one of the most terrifying amongst them…. According to Qin Yu’s estimation, its gravity ought to be able to be compared with that of the Mortal Realm’s neutron star. However, as a living person, he was actually able to walk on it.
Although his cells collapsed earlier, due to the transformation they had underwent. With the help of the meteoric tear, they were now even more powerful. They were now able to completely bear the gravity of the Dark Star that he was stepping on.
Qin Yu started to spread out his Soul’s Power.
“Mn? This Dark Star is actually able to attract the Soul’s Power?” Qin Yu was shocked to find out that this Dark Star’s frightening gravity was actually able to affect the Soul’s Power. However, Qin Yu possessed the assistance of the Meteoric Tear. Thus, he was still able to observe the entire Dark Star.
This Dark Star was very small.
To be more exact, Dark Stars are usually extremely small. This Dark Star possessed merely the diameter of around a thousand miles. Had it been a normal Mortal Realm’s planet, then Qin Yu would’ve likely passed through the entire planet in an instant.
However, what about now?
To walk a thousand miles with the speed of taking a stroll, how long would that take? If he were to walk a hundred miles a day, it would still take ten days. Furthermore, that was merely the distance of the diameter. To walk a circle around the Dark Star, the time it would take would be absolutely more than a month.
“Only myself and that Meng Long are on this Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. This is exactly as I had anticipated. However, there’s actually liquid on this Dark Star?” Qin Yu was a bit shocked.
Earlier, Qin Yu’s Soul’s Power had discovered that in a distance greater than three hundred miles away from him, was a small hole with the length of about two meters and width one meter. Inside that small hole was a green colored liquid.
There’s liquid on the Dark Star?
According to Qin Yu’s understanding of the neutron star, he was completely unable to explain this phenomenon. All he could do was to comfort himself. This was the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. It was a cosmic space at a higher layer than the Mortal Realm.
“Sigh, a distance over three hundred miles. So far.” Qin Yu had a long sigh.
Qin Yu was only able to reach the speed of ‘taking a stroll’ after his muscles’ toughness reached their limit. To walk over three hundred miles with that kind of speed… Perhaps only on the Dark Star would Qin Yu feel that a distance of over three hundred miles was extremely far.
What Qin Yu didn’t know was Meng Long who found it difficult to even stand up was currently extremely envious of him being able to ‘stroll.’
After a day…
“Huff, Huff….” Qin Yu was breathing hard.
Wearing only shorts, Qin Yu’s entire body was completely covered in sweat. He immediately collapsed under the frightening gravity. All the muscles on Qin Yu’s body were shivering. An entire day. ‘Strolling’ for an entire day. Qin Yu was using his muscles to their limits.
At this moment, Qin Yu was able to clearly sense the aching pain coming from his muscles. Fortunately he possessed the Life Elemental Energy that continuously restored his body.
Otherwise, walking an entire day would be nothing but wishful thinking.
As he walked, Qin Yu raised his head and saw the endless outer space. There were no other planets beside this Dark Star. That was because this Dark Star’s gravitational force was too great. Only very far away were there some very small planets.
“What exactly is the liquid on the Dark Star? Mn, continue walking.” Qin Yu clenched his teeth and continued to, heavily, walk step by step. The muscles of his body that had reached their limits were being sprained unceasingly…
On this Dark Star with the extremely terrifying gravity, Qin Yu walked step by step like so. Each of his steps were heavier than Mount Tai.
