The Meteoric Tear that was radiating an endless amount of green light in Qin Yu’s mind was extremely dazzling. The green light had covered everything. The Meteoric Tear was currently emitting a seven colored brilliance into Qin Yu’s golden soul pellet.
As the seven colored brilliance entered into Qin Yu’s golden soul pellet, the Meteoric Tear started to reduce in size with a speed visible to the naked eye!
When Qin Yu’s golden soul pellet was absorbing the seven colored brilliance, Qin Yu’s Awareness had entered into a particular setting.
A boundless amount of seawater.
At this moment, Qin Yu appeared to have turned into a drop of seawater. He was connected with the boundless amount of seawater and experiencing the extensiveness of the peacefulness of the ocean, the ire during the time when enormous waves surged in the ocean and the boundless depths of the ocean.
After an unknown period of time, Qin Yu had even come to believe that he was indeed a droplet of water.
Suddenly, the ocean disappeared.
Qin Yu had entered into a vegetative state. He was surrounded by all kinds of flowers and plants. They were many and varied. So many and varied that Qin Yu was unable to even count them. As for Qin Yu, this time around, he was merely regular grass among them.
He grew and then withered. Soon, once again, he revived and germinated. Again he grew, he again withered….
A cycle, a continuous cycle.
As he was undergoing the cycle, Qin Yu suddenly sensed that his surroundings were once again undergoing a change. His surroundings had turned into nothingness. It was the outer space! Qin Yu was able to see the celestial bodies far away; the blazing sun, the uninhabited planets.
All of these celestial bodies were eternally floating in the cosmic space. It was as if they would never change.
Occasionally, Qin Yu would become one amongst countless weapons. Occasionally, Qin Yu would become a speck of dust in the air. Occasionally, Qin Yu would enter into an endless void. Occasionally, Qin Yu would enter a boundless sea of flames….
As he went through the mysterious experiences one after another, Qin Yu did not know how much time had passed.
After seemingly a countless number of years had passed, a voice sounded.
“Child, this is what I left behind before my death. Contained within it is my comprehension toward the cosmic space. Try your best to comprehend as much as you can. I, Zuo Qiumei, have never accepted a disciple in my life. You could be considered as my sole disciple. However, you must remember, before you are able to comprehend everything that I have passed onto you, do not speak of my name to others. Disciple of mine, I hope that you’ll be able to enjoy a more relaxed and more happy life than mine….”
That gentle and soft voice had caused Qin Yu’s mind to enter a state of hypnosis.
In his fuzziness, Qin Yu appeared to have heard the voice of his mother. That sort of tranquility was extremely comfortable to him. He wished that voice would never stop. However, that voice disappeared after merely a moment.
As the voice disappeared, Qin Yu became sober headed again in a short period of time.
“Was it this Zuo Qiumei who passed on the Meteoric Tear to me?” Qin Yu grew somewhat understanding of what have happened. “Based on what that Zuo Qiumei had said, she appears to have already died.”
For an unknown reason, upon knowing that this Zuo Qiumei had died, Qin Yu unexpectedly had a painful feeling in his heart.
Qin Yu still clearly remembered the final voice of that Zuo Qiumei. Qin Yu was unable to understand at all. She who possessed such a voice that could allow even one’s soul to enter a state of tranquility, who would be willing to kill her?
“The comprehension toward the cosmic space?”
Qin Yu was able to clearly sense that within his soul were some things that are similar to the most ancient and origin of the universe. They were the things that this woman called Zuo Qiumei left behind for him.
“I shall allow my body to naturally continue its training with the Nine Steps Dark Gold Body and the Gold Punishment Sect’s martial technique.” Qin Yu’s Awareness entered into the dazzling seven colored radiance within his soul.
In Qin Yu’s mind, the Meteoric Tear had stopped shooting out the seven colored radiance. The current Meteoric Tear, when compared the before, was an entire size smaller. Earlier, when Qin Yu experienced all those scenes, the time seemed to be very long… however, only a couple days had actually passed.
The Meteoric Tear that had become a size smaller once again fused with Qin Yu’s golden soul pellet.
As for Qin Yu, he was currently submerging his awareness into the depths of that seven colored radiance. He was appreciating the comprehensions that Zuo Qiumei left for him.
These were the most precious things that Zuo Qiumei had left behind with the assistance of the Meteoric Tear. It was unknown how long it would take for Qin Yu to comprehend these things…. Just like that, Qin Yu’s Awareness entered a state of comprehension, training at the depths of the seven colored radiance.
Qin Yu sat cross-legged on the Dark Star. The twenty seven thousand seals and patterns merged with the depths of Qin Yu’s bones and muscles. They were unceasingly absorbing Elemental Spirit Energy and tempering Qin Yu’s bones and muscles. As for the martial technique of the Gold Punishment Sect, it too was being used constantly and absorbed an endless amount of Gold Attribute Energy into Qin Yu’s body.
Time passed. Qin Yu, in the depths of his training, did not know how much time had passed at all.
Inside the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
On a snow peaked mountain. Hou Fei, Hei Yu and Wu Lan were currently together. Hou Fei was donned in golden clothes. His fiery eyes were flickering with a sense of helplessness. Standing beside Hou Fei was Hei Yu who was dressed in all white with a grave and stern expression.
As for Wu Lan, he was sitting on the side and drinking wine.
“Monkey, what’s with big brother this time around? Even with using Mind Voice Transmission, big brother still did not respond.” Hei Yu’s brows were creased. Qin Yu’s training this time around was truly too long. It was so long that even Hou Fei and Hei Yu grew worried.
Hei Yu and Qin Yu were brothers who grew up together. Thus, there was a special kind of connection between them. Between Hei Yu and Qin Yu, they do not even need to use Soul’s Power to send voice transmissions. Instead, with merely a mind’s intention, they were able to communicate with each other.
Wu Lan lightly smiled and said. “The Mind Voice Transmission would only sound in one’s True Spirit.”
“True Spirit, what is that?” Hou Fei looked to Wu Lan in confusion.
Wu Lan explained while smiling. “Oh, I’ve forgotten about it. This ‘True Spirit’ is the same as the ‘Awareness’ that you all know. Usually, one’s Awareness would be able to receive communications coming to it. Since even your Awareness Voice Transmission was not received by him, it would seem that Qin Yu has entered a deep level training where even his Awareness is immersed.”
“Deep level training?” Hou Fei and Hei Yu glanced at each other.
How deep must it be for even Mind Voice Transmission to not work? This was truly too astonishing.
“What’s the most important is that big brother had already trained for twenty thousand years. No, only two thousand years have passed outside! However, training for two thousand years, isn’t that a bit too long?” Said Hou Fei anxiously.
Wu Lan laughed as he scolded. “What would a brat like you know? This sort of deep level training is something that can be discovered but not sought! Usually, when one trains, one would train one’s body of the power of one’s Nascent Soul. Much less Awareness Voice Transmission, even a Voice Transmission through the Demon Awareness would be able to wake him up.”
“This sort of deep level training is not a training of the body or one’s energy. Instead… it’s the training of the state of being. It’s the achieving of comprehension regarding the cosmic space! That is both the most basic and the most deep level training. It is something that would not come even if I sought for it. It’s best for the two of you to not be bored and randomly send Mind Voice Transmission to your big brother. I wish for your big brother to continue training like this for several tens of thousands of years more.”
Hearing what Wu Lan had said, Hou Fei and Hei Yu were only able to smile.
“For big brother to possess such good luck, we are naturally happy for him. It’s just that both Monkey’s and my soul have reached level nine Demon Emperor level. Our power had also reached the limit of level eight Demon Emperor. Had it not been for us restricting ourselves, we would’ve already reached level nine Demon Emperor level.” Said Hei Yu helplessly.
Training for twenty thousand years, Hou Fei and Hei Yu’s souls have both reached level nine Demon Emperor level. In terms of strength, had they not been suppressing themselves, they too would have reached level nine Demon Emperor level.
Hou Fei muck up his lips and said. “Once one enters the level nine Demon Emperor, it’s very possible for him to encounter the Divine Tribulation. Although it is very hard to say when the Divine Tribulation would arrive, in order to not ascend to the Divine Realm too early, the two of us could only suppress our powers.”
Hei Yu also nodded.
Wu Lan who stood to the side said helplessly. “You two brats, your cultivation speed is so fast. I, on the other hand, wished to reach level nine Demon Emperor level earlier but was unable to do that. That holds true for Ye Qu and Wuxu too. They have been working very hard on their training these past years.”
Hou Fei and Hei Yu both smiled apologetically.
The speed in which the two of them progressed caused an immense shock to Ye Qu and Ao Wuxu. The cold and detached Ao Wuxu did not bother to say anything, he merely frantically trained by himself. As for Ye Qu, he was also training with great effort.
“Sigh, we’ll just have to continue waiting. Who knows when big brother will finish his training.” Said Hou Fei helplessly.
Hei Yu smiled. “In these past years, I have also not spent time with Ling’er. Now, I shall go and spend some time with Ling’er and give some guidance to Little Tong and Guo Fan.”
Currently, Qin Yu’s awareness was completely submerged and unceasingly absorbing comprehensions. Like an extremely hungry traveler, he frantically absorbed the comprehensions left behind by Zuo Qiumei.
Qin Yu’s body was faintly radiating a golden light. Even the bones within his body were faintly radiating a dark gold light. Evidently, this was the sign that Qin Yu had reached the ninth stage of the ‘Nine Steps Dark Gold Body.’
Before Qin Yu submerged his awareness into a deep level training, he had already reached the eighth stage of the Nine Steps Dark Gold Body. In the following two thousand years, even though he did not proactively trained in it, the long period of time still allowed him to reach the ninth stage of the Nine Steps Dark Gold Body.
After a long long time!
Qin Yu who had been sitting cross-legged the entire time suddenly opened his eyes. Two essence-like lights were being emitted from his eyes.
“It’s already been, it’s already been three thousand years.” Qin Yu calculated the amount of time in his heart and was shocked to discover that he had trained for three thousand years. The deep level training of his awareness, now that he recalled it, it appeared to have only taken a blink of an eye.
In a flash, three thousand years have passed.
“Who exactly is this Zuo Qiumei? The comprehension of the cosmic space that she left behind is so astonishing. In these three thousand years, I merely managed to comprehend ten or twenty percent of it. However, with barely this ten or twenty percent, it allowed me to become ten to a hundred times stronger than before.”
Qin Yu stood up.
“Dark Star’s Gravity? Even if this gravity were to increase by ten times, it would still not affect me in the slightest.” Suddenly, Gold Force were emitted from Qin Yu’s body. The Gold Force was drifting through the surrounding of Qin Yu’s body. Like a lump of golden rings, it covered Qin Yu.
Qin Yu started to float.
That’s right, he was floating.
He was floating on the Dark Star!
A Fifteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. Even if one was a sixteen star Emperor level expert, one would only be able to, at the most, jump on the Fifteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star. Floating was practically impossible. It was only possible if one was an eighteen star Emperor level expert.
However, Qin Yu’s current strength was still not at the eighteen star Emperor level. He had merely just reached seventeen star Emperor level.
However, through his comprehension of the cosmic space, Qin Yu had easily transformed the space surrounding him and decreased the Dark Star’s gravity in the space surrounding him by several tens times.
“Laws, that is the most basic and most powerful force.” Qin Yu had already understood this.
However, he also understood, that when two people with the same level of comprehension fight each other, they would still have to resort back to using their most primitive strength. Nevertheless, the comprehensions regarding the ‘Laws’ is still very important.
“Laughable, truly laughable. The Meteor Finger Technique, that Ten Thousand Weighty Fingers, Thousand Illusion Fingers, Ten Termination Fingers and that Sky Piercing Finger, they are truly laughable, laughable!” Qin Yu laughed at himself.
When viewing the sky from the bottom of a well, one would not know how the sky is. However, once one exited the well, one would be able to see that the sky was boundless.
Qin Yu was precisely feeling like this.
The comprehension he had toward the cosmic space from before was merely that of an Emperor level expert from the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. He merely had an experience of sensing the cosmic space yet though himself to be extraordinary already. Furthermore, coming up with the ‘domain,’ truly ignorant and narrow-minded.
Qin Yu was certain that even if the Peng Demon Emperor dared to come and fight him again; then, with merely his comprehension toward the space, he would be able to greatly decrease the Peng Demon Emperor’s speed and make the fastest person in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm to become the slowest amongst the Demon Realm’s Three Great Emperors.
“Never mind the Meteor Finger Technique, all I need to know is the Sky Piercing Finger.” Qin Yu extended the index finger of his right hand.
A ray of Gold Force was shot out from Qin Yu’s finger.
As if passing through the layer of space, that golden finger ray was shot directly on the ground of the Dark Star. Even though the Dark Star was extremely tough and durable, a half meter deep hole was still created by the finger ray.
“Haha….” Qin Yu started laughing. “Back when I was on the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star, through great efforts, I merely managed to cut a small stick’s worth of Dark Star substance with my Divine Sword Sky Piercer. However now, with merely a simple finger ray, its power is more than ten times greater than the Divine Sword.”
Qin Yu had not used his black hole to increase the speed of his finger ray.
This finger ray was shot through utilizing the comprehension Qin Yu had toward the cosmic space. He caused the surrounding space of the finger ray to disintegrate. Thus, even the Dark Star substance was shot through half a meter by the finger ray. Merely, Qin Yu’s comprehension level was still not enough… had it been that Zuo Qiumei, then Qin Yu reckoned that with a wave of her hand, she would be able to turn the entire Dark Star into dust.
“I’m still very weak.”
Qin Yu sighed in his heart.
Was Qin Yu really weak? With merely his body that was comparable to that of a High Quality Divine Artifact, there are already not many people that could defeat him. However, the strongest thing that Qin Yu possessed was instead the comprehension toward the space. Although he merely managed to comprehend ten to twenty percent of what Zuo Qiumei had left for him.
In the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, perhaps only people like the Dragon Emperor who possessed an Inherited Treasure could be able to resist his attack through his turtle-like defense.
“I reckon my body has now reached seventeen star Emperor level. I should not be far away from eighteen star Emperor level. There is no need for me to rush training myself anymore.” Qin Yu had prepared to leave this Dark Star. However, right after walking two steps, Qin Yu opened his eyes wide. “It’s been three thousand years! Fei Fei and them had already trained for thirty thousand years in the Jiang Lan’s Realm! Don’t tell me that the two of them have already undergone the Divine Tribulation!”
Qin Yu disappeared from the Dark Star Realm. He had entered the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
