Inside the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
Hei Yu, Bai Ling, their daughter Hei Tong and their son-in-law Guo Fan were currently having a meal together. Other than their family, Guo Fan’s master Wu Lan was also present. Of course, Hou Fei was certainly to be there too.
This large group of people were happily drinking and eating. As for Hou Fei, he was currently boasting to Hei Tong.
“Little Tong, let your Second Uncle tell you; in the Immortal Realm, the Devil Realm and the Demon Realm combined, there are not many people who could match against your Second Uncle. With my Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes, who would dare to take it on?” Hou Fei blinked his eyes complacently.
Hou Fei’s Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes was indeed very powerful. This held especially true with the assistance of the Black Stick that Uncle Lan gifted him. Its attack power was so strong that even Hei Yu didn’t dare to take it on with his defensive scaled feathers. Thus, one could easily imagine how strong it was.
“You have the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes, my father also has it.” Said Hei Tong.
“Your father? Your father had learned it from me.” Said Hou Fei with his head raised up.
Sitting on the side, Hei Yu merely smiled. At this moment, he did not dare to say anything. Indeed, more than eighty percent of his spear technique was learned through Hou Fei’s stick technique. The other twenty percent was created by himself.
Hei Tong smiled and laughed. She said. “Second Uncle is amazing. However, is it possible for you to teach my Big Brother Guo Fan that Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes of yours?”
“Little Tong.” Bai Ling uttered a voice of rebuke.
Whenever Hei Tong sees someone powerful, she would ask that person to teach their techniques to her husband. Guo Fan smiled and said. “Little Tong, my comprehension is insufficient. Moreover, I think that it would be sufficient as long as I can master the fist technique that master taught me.”
“It is good to specialize in one thing. Little Tong, you need to learn more from Guo Fan.” Lectured Wu Fan.
At the beginning, Wu Lan merely gave Guo Fan some guidance. However, as time passed, Wu Lan discovered that Guo Fan who appeared to be very simple and honest was actually extremely meticulous. His comprehension of things was also extremely high. The speed at which he learned the fist technique that was taught to him was also extremely fast.
“Where’s uncle Ye Qu? Is he not coming today?” Hou Tong said with a frown.
Wu Lan smiled and said. “Regarding Ye Qu, your father and your Second Uncle are now able to become level nine Demon Emperors any time they want and have controlled their power in order to wait for your Eldest Uncle; your uncle Ye Qu, on the other hand, is still at the level eight Demon Emperor level. Thus, he naturally has to try his hardest.”
“Haha… even if he has to try harder, there is no need for him to concern about such a small bit of time.” A thick voice sounded. With a mountain-like figure and heavy steps, Ye Qu walked over. He then directly sat down. “Little Tong is the best after all, she still thinks of me even now.”
Cleverly, Hei Tong nodded her head. Soon after, she looked to her surroundings. “It’s one thing for master to not come because she had entered seclusion training, but didn’t uncle Wuxu reach level nine Demon Emperor level not too many years ago? Why didn’t he come?”
“He’s not used to places with a lot of people.” Ye Qu explained.
“Oh, that’s right, uncle Wuxu doesn’t like lively places.” Hei Tong nodded. Suddenly, she looked to a distant place with excitement. “Ah, Eldest Uncle came!”
“How could that be? I am certain that I know about Wuxu’s personality.” Said Ye Qu confidently.
Hei Yu, Hou Fei and them also looked over. “Big brother, you’ve finally returned.”
”[TL: okay, this might be confusing. the reason why Ye Qu thought Hei Tong was referring to Wuxu is because she calls them all with ‘(eldest) uncle.’ However, Qin Yu was the only one referred to her with only ‘(eldest) uncle.’ Since technically, they are related, and Hou Fei is the second uncle, I have translated Qin Yu as the eldest uncle.]
Shocked, Ye Qu also turned around to look. “Qin Yu?”
Indeed, the person who came was Qin Yu.
Qin Yu walked over. He said. “I’m sorry about the fact that I ended up training three thousand years at once and caused you all to wait for a long time.” He then looked to Hou Fei and Hei Yu. “Fei Fei, Xiao Hei, both of your souls have reached the level nine Demon Emperor level. Mn, not bad. Even your strength has reached the limit of level eight Demon Emperor. Fortunately, you two still haven’t gone through the Divine Tribulation and ascended.”
Hou Fei stood up, with a slanted mouth, he said. “What’s so fortunate? Mixed Hair Bird and I have reached our current level a long time ago. Had it not been for the fact that we have been suppressing our power, we would’ve long since reached level nine Demon Emperor and likely be in the Divine Realm by now.”
“Monkey.” Hei Yu frowned. He did not like what Hou Fei had said. “The reason why we were able to cultivate so fast was because big brother allowed us to be in the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Had we been outside, then I suspect we wouldn’t have reached our current level yet.”
Hou Fei immediately smiled apologetically. He said. “Mixed Hair Bird, I’m merely joking.”
“Enough now, stop fooling around.” Qin Yu smiled and put a stop to the two. “The two of your souls have reached level nine Demon Emperor level for quite some time now. Seems like the speed at which the two of you progressed is pretty fast. However, I am unsure about what your actual strength might be.”
Hou Fei said confidently. “Strength? I have completely comprehended the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes now. My current strength is definitely no weaker than the Great Ape Emperor. You asked about how my strength is? Big brother, are you feeling inferior now?”
Qin Yu smiled. He then looked to Hei Yu.
Hei Yu had instead grew confident. “The Black Feathered Armor formed by my feathers ought to possess a defense close to that of a High Quality Divine Armor. With my speed and the Cloud Piercing Spear; big brother… I think that there are not many people in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm that could surpass me.” Although Hei Yu did not say it, the meaning behind his words were very clear. He was also confident in beating Qin Yu in a fight.
“Seems like you’re all very confident.” Qin Yu was smiling.
“Eldest Uncle, Second Uncle and father had been in the Jiang Lan’s Realm the entire time. They have trained many times longer than you have. It’s not unreasonable if you were to lose.” Hei Tong comforted Qin Yu out of kindness.
Qin Yu merely smiled helplessly.
“Xiao Hei, Fei Fei, let me know of the progress you’ve made in this period of time. Come, attack at me.” Said Qin Yu.
“Big brother, you want the two of us to fight against you?” Hou Fei’s eyes were wide open. Hei Yu also looked to Qin Yu in shock. The two of them were both extremely powerful. It would have already been pretty amazing if Qin Yu managed to defeat one of them. Yet, he wanted to fight against two?
“Qin Yu, Fei Fei’s Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes possesses an extremely powerful might. Even a High Quality Divine Artifact would be unable to resist it. This was precisely the reason why the Great Ape Emperor was able to match up against the Peng Demon Emperor and the Dragon Emperor.” Wu Lan reminded Qin Yu.
Wu Lan knew that Qin Yu had received comprehension. However, he did not believe that Qin Yu would be able to increase his power by much in a mere three thousand years.
That was because in the Divine Realm, experts would spend tens of thousands of years every time they entered seclusion training to achieve comprehension.
However, Wu Lan did not know at all that Qin Yu had not been trying to attain comprehensions with no direction. Instead, he had directly comprehended the achievements that Zuo Qiumei have toward the laws of the cosmic space.
This was comparable to collecting diamonds. Others have gone through the entire world to collect them one by one. However, for Qin Yu, a large amount of diamonds were displayed in front of him. He merely need to reach out his hand to grab them and they would’ve been his. The speed in which Qin Yu had achieved comprehension was at a level of its own.
Although he merely trained for three thousand years, Qin Yu’s achievements were likely better than the three million years long training of some the experts in the Divine Realm.
“Don’t worry about it, just come at me.” A faint golden light was emitted from Qin Yu’s body. “I have already reached the ninth stage of the Nine Steps Dark Gold Body. My entire body could be comparable to a High Quality Divine Artifact. It would be hard for you two to injure me.”
Hou Fei and Hei Yu took a glance at each other. Immediately after, they nodded.
“Big brother, in that case, please excuse us!” Excited, Hou Fei licked his lips.
It wasn’t that Hou Fei had never fought against Qin Yu before. Merely, almost every single time he fought against Qin Yu, he would end up being trampled upon by Qin Yu. Thus, Hou Fei currently wanted to turn the table around and devastate Qin Yu instead.
“Big brother, you’re seeking to be trampled upon, you cannot blame me for it.” Hou Fei was smiling excitedly. As for Hei Yu, he was also holding onto his Cloud Piercer Spear with a single hand. His gaze directed at Qin Yu. In his eyes were a trace of excitement.
This was the first time the three brothers fought each other after three thousand years.
Was this the time for Hou Fei and Hei Yu to bring about change and ravage Qin Yu or would they be oppressed by Qin Yu again?
“Eldest Uncle, add oil, Eldest Uncle, add oil, I believe in you!” Hei Tong started clapping to encourage Qin Yu. At the same time, she comforted. “Eldest Uncle, it’s fine if you lose too. They’re two against one.”
[TL: add oil = chinese word meaning to try harder. Encouragement.]
Qin Yu could only smile.
Soon after, with a movement of his figure, Qin Yu had reached the sky. Hou Fei and Hei Yu had also teleported into the air.
“Let’s start.” Qin Yu said.
“Stop!” Hou Fei suddenly yelled.
“What’s wrong?” Qin Yu looked to Hou Fei. Hou Fei said. “Big brother, this is the Jiang Lan’s Realm, your territory. You are able to completely control everything that happens in the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Thus, I demand that you must not use the Jiang Lan’s Realm to fight against us and could only use your own strength.”
Hei Yu also looked to Qin Yu. The two of them had realized this.
“Sure, I guarantee you that I would not control the Jiang Lan’s Realm.” Qin Yu agreed. He however felt helpless in his heart.
Not control the Jiang Lan’s Realm?
Even if Qin Yu did not control the Jiang Lan’s Realm, but once he start using the comprehension he had toward the laws of the space and create space distortions and the like, it was likely that his two brothers would think that he was controlling the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
“Big brother, eat my stick!” Hou Fei roared.
A black stick silhouette merely flashed before passing through space and arriving in front of Qin Yu. Against this incoming stick strike, Qin Yu merely slightly moved and easily dodged it.
“Mn? Impossible.” Hou Fei’s expression changed. He was very confident in his own stick techniques. It was one thing if Qin Yu used his body to resist it. However, Qin Yu actually managed to easily dodged it.
A black spearhead had arrived in front of Qin Yu in an instant.
“This spear strike’s comprehension toward the laws of the space is also pretty good. However, from the looks of it, Xiao Hei also merely knows of its existence but doesn’t know what it is yet.” Qin Yu’s body moved once again. He had dodged the incoming spear.
The comprehension toward the space was something that Qin Yu was able to use on any technique that he possessed.
Movement technique, spear technique, finger technique, leg technique, fist technique… over ten thousand of them. Hou Fei and Hei Yu had merely achieved the comprehension of spear and stick techniques. Although they knew that if they were to attack using the spear or stick technique one way, it would allow for an immense attack power. However, they do not know the reason why it would display such an immense attack power!
“Impossible!” Hou Fei’s eyes were filled with shock. Hei Yu was also staring at Qin Yu in shock.
Soon after, Hou Fei and Hei Yu took a glance at each other and nodded slightly.
The Black Stick and the Cloud Piercing Spear almost came attacking at Qin Yu simultaneously. Stick and spear silhouettes were flying toward Qin Yu unceasingly. However, as if it was a child’s play, Qin Yu was easily evading all of them.
Wu Lan, Hei Tong and the rest of the people down below were filled with shock upon seeing the scene.
“Impossible. Big brother, did you control the Jiang Lan’s Realm and change your body’s location?” Hou Fei grabbed onto his Black Stick and stood up in the air. He looked to Qin Yu and said. “Big brother, it is wrong for you to do that.”
Hei Yu also grabbed his spear and looked to Qin Yu.
“I have said that I would not use the Jiang Lan’s Realm, so I would definitely not use it.” Qin Yu sighed in his mind.
Sure enough, it was exactly as he anticipated. Hou Fei and Hei Yu guessed that he was using the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
“However your… your ability to dodge is too abnormal.” Hou Fei found it somewhat hard to accept.
Qin Yu smiled and said. “It is not my dodging ability that is abnormal. Instead, your stick technique could only be considered as being ordinary. Back in the Inherited Prohibited Area, I have already seen and understood the Heaven Startling Seventy Two Stick Strikes, Heaven Startling Thirty Six Stick Strikes, Heaven Startling Eighteen Stick Strikes, Heaven Startling Nine Stick Strikes, Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes and the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike.”
Qin Yu extended his hand. An ordinary metal stick appeared in his hand.
The amount of spatial laws that the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike contained was still an extremely sparse amount. Compared to Qin Yu’s current comprehension, it was much less. In the past he did not understand the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike. However now that he had managed to comprehend part of the spatial laws, he managed to understand the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike completely upon remembering it.
“Big brother, what are you planning to do?” Hou Fei looked to the stick in Qin Yu’s hand. He started to have a guess in his heart. However, that guess of his, even he himself thought it to be extremely crazy.
Qin Yu held the long stick with a single hand. Immediately after, the long stick in his hand started to shake.
“This is the Heaven Startling Seventy Two Stick Strikes!”
Qin Yu’s figure flashed at a lightning speed. Countless stick silhouettes covered the entire sky. Qin Yu had executed the Heaven Startling Seventy Two Stick Strikes extremely naturally. Although Qin Yu’s execution of the Heaven Startling Seventy Two Stick Strikes did not contain the grandeur of Hou Fei’s, yet Hou Fei knew that… this was because Qin Yu had managed to achieve complete comprehension of the stick technique and have polished it to its true brightness.
“This is the Heaven Startling Thirty Six Stick Strikes!”
Qin Yu executed every single move from the Heaven Startling Thirty Six Stick Strikes. The final move, the Thirty Six Overlapping Waves, had even bursted forth an amazing power.
Hou Fei mumbled. “That’s too crazy. Don’t continue anymore. I don’t even dare to continue watching it anymore.”
“This is the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes!”
This was already the fifth set of stick technique that Qin Yu executed. When executing the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes, Qin Yu used his Gold Force to protect the metal stick. That was because no ordinary metal sticks would be able to bear such a stick technique.
Three explosions were heard. Cracks have appeared in the space.
“Monkey, big brother executed the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes even more effortlessly than you did. Furthermore, its power was much stronger than yours.” Hei Yu looked to Hou Fei. Hou Fei was however staring at Qin Yu. “Please don’t tell me you even know the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike.”
After Qin Yu finished executing the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes, he took a glance at Hou Fei and Hei Yu. With a smile, he said. ““This is the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike!”
Qin Yu held the long stick in his right hand. He then directly thrust it forward!
When Qin Yu thrust the long stick forward, everyone who were watching him saw that his figure had turned blurry. Even the long stick had turned blurry. It was as if there were seven or eight blurs.
When the blurs united with each other, Qin Yu’s long stick had also stopped.
The space that the long stick struck started to shake. Unceasingly, the vibration was being sent forward unceasingly all the way till it reached a large mountain located far away. That large mountain slightly vibrated for merely a moment before turning into fine powder.
Everything that the long stick pointed to had turned into fine dust!
“Did you manage to see that clearly?” The metal stick in Qin Yu’s hand disappeared. Qin Yu looked to his two brothers while smiling.
Hou Fei and Hei Yu took a glance at each other. They both saw the unbelieving expression in each other’s eyes.
What an abnormal big brother. Hou Fei felt a bitter pain in his heart. He raised his head to Qin Yu and said helplessly. “Big brother, I have trained here for thirty thousand years and only managed to learn the Heaven Startling Three Stick Strikes. You, on the other hand, did not train like I did and have only stayed outside for three thousand years. Yet, you’ve mastered even the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike.”
Hei Yu looked to Qin Yu’s figure. He thought to himself. “Big brother is still that strong. It appears that I have to try harder.”
“Actually, the stick technique of your Monkey and Ape Clan has already entered the Dao. However, a Dao is the same as Ten Thousand Daos. As long as you possess enough comprehension toward the cosmic space, then stick techniques, spear techniques, fist techniques, you’ll know them all. The movement techniques that I displayed earlier were through the use of merely my comprehension toward the space. When I reach a sufficient amount of spatial comprehension, I am even able to cause the space in a certain place to disintegrate. The people that exist in that space would also naturally be disintegrated. This is the power of the greater Dao.” Qin Yu explained.
[TL: Dao = Daoism/Taoism = Path/Way. Hard to explain…. Basically… kinda like All Might’s One For All… wait no… argh… (from wikipedia: The term Tao means "way”, "path”, or "principle”, and can also be found in Chinese philosophies and religions other than Taoism. In Taoism, however, Tao denotes something that is both the source of, and the force behind, everything that exists.)]
