The large mountain far away had already disappeared. All that remained was a large amount of rocks and powder, where the mountain used to be. As the wind blew, the powder followed the wind and started flying. Upon seeing the scene in front of them, Hou Fei and Hei Yu looked at each other and then started laughing.
“Big brother, there’s no use in telling us about things like the Greater Dao. Our soul realm levels are merely level nine Demon Emperor. How much do you think we’d possibly be able to comprehend?” Said Hou Fei helplessly.
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
He knew that the only reason he himself managed to attain such an accomplishment, in merely three thousand short years, was because of the assistance of the Meteoric Tear, the assistance of that Zuo Qiumei. The fact that Hou Fei and Xiao Hei were able to achieve comprehension in the spear technique and stick technique, was already a pretty good accomplishment.
“Come, let’s descend.”
With a movement of his body, Qin Yu arrived on the ground.
Beside a short and robust large tree, everyone was surrounding a table, laughing, eating and chatting. Qin Yu had also started talking about what had happened all these years. Of course… he had not mentioned the name, Zuo Qiumei.
That was because Qin Yu remembered very well that Zuo Qiumei had said to not mention her name unless he managed to completely comprehend everything that she had left for him.
“Qin Yu, to what extent did you comprehend the spatial laws? What level is your soul now?” Wu Lan suddenly asked.
Qin Yu looked to Wu Lan. For Wu Lan to ask him such questions, it was evident that Wu Lan knew quite a lot. Unable to refrain himself, Qin Yu asked. “Wu Lan, do you know how many levels there are for the soul?”
“When one’s soul reaches the final stage and obtains satisfaction, it will condense into a golden pellet. This golden pellet is called Golden Soul Pellet. This is the level of ordinary Deities. The stage above this, is called the Embryo Soul. Which is when your soul takes the appearance of an embryo, making one become very powerful. That being said, Qin Yu, based on everything that you displayed earlier, I am certain that your soul’s level is extremely high. Have you reached the Golden Soul Pellet stage?” Wu Lan asked.
Qin Yu nodded.
Golden Soul Pellet?
Before he started comprehending all those laws regarding the space, Qin Yu’s soul had already reached the Golden Soul Pellet stage. Qin Yu theorized, that his current Golden Soul Pellet was over ten times stronger compared to his Golden Soul Pellet from three thousand years ago.
“The spatial laws are extremely immeasurable and possess no end point. The path of comprehending the spatial laws is a very very long and endless path. Actually, one would be able to tell one’s comprehension toward the spatial laws just through by looking at one’s soul’s level… When your soul surpasses the level of Embryo Soul, then you’ll likely gain complete comprehension of the spatial laws. However, in all my years in the Divine Realm, I had never once seen anyone who managed to achieve complete comprehension of the spatial laws. For people like that, with merely a thought, they’d be able to kill hundreds of millions of me.” Gasped Wu Lan.
Hou Fei and Hei Yu were overwhelmed with shock.
They were very familiar with Wu Lan’s strength. However, to be able to kill hundreds of millions of Wu Lans, with merely a thought. That sort of strength was truly too frightening.
“Mn…. when one has reached that level, then with merely an intention, one would be able to cause the heavens to fall and the earth to rend.” Qin Yu nodded.
Qin Yu understood very well the strength one would possess after completely comprehending the spatial laws. That was because he had only managed to comprehend ten to twenty percent of what Zuo Qiumei had left him. Furthermore… the Meteoric Tear had also only grown a ring smaller. It was likely, that all that had been passed to Qin Yu was merely a part of what was contained within the Meteoric Tear.
Wu Lan had already said earlier.
When one’s comprehension regarding the spatial laws reaches a certain level, one’s soul will transform from the Golden Soul Pellet to the Embryo Soul. When one reaches the level of Embryo Soul, one will still be on the journey of comprehending the spatial laws. Only when one surpasses the Embryo Soul stage will one have completely comprehended the spatial laws.
Thus, one could easily see how long and boundless this cultivation journey was.
“Golden Soul Pellet, Embryo Soul… how long will it take?” Qin Yu thought in his heart. Presently, he did not sense any sign that his Golden Soul Pellet would transform into a Embryo Soul. Clearly, he was still very far away from reaching the Embryo Soul stage.
Upon seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Wu Lan smiled and said. “Qin Yu, don’t think about it anymore. With your current strength… with merely your comprehension of the spatial laws, you could essentially be unparalleled in the entire Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.”
“Unparalleled?” Qin Yu laughed. “That’s hard to say. While I might not care much about the Peng Demon Emperor and the Great Ape Emperor, against the Dragon Emperor’s defense, I am not confident that I would be able to break through it.”
Although the Peng Demon Emperor possessed a very fast speed, Qin Yu was able to use his comprehension toward the spatial laws to decrease his speed immensely.
The Peng Demon Emperor who no longer possessed his absolute speed would have no hope at all against Qin Yu’s attack.
As for the Great Ape Emperor, the reason why the Great Ape Emperor was powerful was because of the Heaven Startling Stick Techniques. However, Qin Yu’s comprehension toward the Stick Techniques was even better than his, so how would the Great Ape Emperor be able to match up against Qin Yu?
Only the Dragon Emperor with the abnormal defense remained. Qin Yu was uncertain whether his strongest attack would be able to penetrate through the defense of the Dragon Emperor.
“Not only the Dragon Emperor, there are also the Three Great Sovereigns of the Dark Star Realm. I also do not have absolute certainty in defeating them.” Qin Yu’s gaze was deep. Slowly, he said. “All of the Three Great Sovereigns of the Dark Star Realm possess Inherited Treasures. Their bodies are already extremely valiant when they do not use their Inherited Treasures; once they use their Inherited Treasures, I reckon… they might be even more powerful than the Dragon Emperor.”
All the people around the dinner table started to quietly ponder over it.
“They’re that powerful?” Hei Tong muttered in a low voice.
Wu Lan, Hou Fei, Hei Yu, Ye Qu and the rest of them were still quiet and pondering about the words that Qin Yu had just said.
Seeing everyone acting like this, Qin Yu smiled. “Haha, what I meant is that they’re extremely exceptional. However, as for whether their defense is able to resist my attack, that’s still unknown.” Qin Yu looked to Hou Fei. “Fei Fei, you ought to know about the might of the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike of your Monkey and Ape Clan.”
Hou Fei said confidently. “If I were able to execute the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike, then I am certain that I would be able to pulverize even a High Quality Divine Artifact.”
Qin Yu smiled and said. “My comprehension toward the spatial laws is much greater compared to the comprehensions contained within the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike. If I were to attack… then with my strongest attack, the possibility that the Dragon Emperor and them would be able to resist it, would also be very low.”
“Haha, I still have quite a large gap from you, big brother. I’m not going to compete with big brother anymore. It’s all good as long as I am able to trample upon the Mixed Hair Bird.” Said Hou Fei while giggling.
“Who’s actually trampling upon who now?” Hei Yu asked.
Hou Fei suddenly grew silent.
“Haha…” Everyone started laughing.
After having their dinner, Qin Yu, Hou Fei and Hei Yu were wandering the mountains.
“Big brother, how’s your progress in your Stellar Transformation martial technique?” Hei Yu asked. Hou Fei also looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock.
Stellar Transformation martial technique?
After he finished his three thousand year long training, Qin Yu had rushed back into the Jiang Lan’s Realm. He had yet to enter into the Stellar Space to see what the progress his Stellar Transformation martial technique had made.
Qin Yu stopped walking. His Awareness directly entered into the Stellar Space.
Inside the Stellar Space.
The Stellar Space was as spacious and empty as before. However, its volume had turned a lot larger compared to last time when Qin Yu was there. A vast amount of flour paste energy had permeated through the membrane and assimilated into the Dark Golden Sphere located in the center of the Stellar Space.
“It’s changed color? Last time I was here, it was still a golden color.” Qin Yu immediately took control of that Dark Golden Sphere and made it shoot out a ray of energy.
Qin Yu carefully inspected the pureness of that ray of energy.
“It’s strength is much stronger than before. It is even stronger than the current Nine Steps Force and the Gold Force.” Qin Yu was overjoyed. When the Nine Steps Dark Gold Body reached the ninth stage, his Nine Steps Force and the Gold Force were both comparable to a level eight Immortal Emperor’s energy. However, Qin Yu’s current Origin Energy was actually even stronger!
Suddenly, Qin Yu thought of a thing. “I might be able to open the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm now!”
Of the Jiang Lan’s Realm’s three layers, Qin Yu has only opened the first layer. According to what Uncle Lan had said, he, Qin Yu, would only be qualified to see Li’er after opening all three layers of the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
“Big brother, what’s wrong?” Confused, Hei Yu looked to Qin Yu.
“Let me try to see if I am able to open the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm.” With an intention, Qin Yu made the dark golden color Origin Energy to directly enter into the true body of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Qin Yu’s Origin Energy entered into it continously.
Hou Fei and Hei Yu were quietly watching.
“There’s something.” Qin Yu sensed that his Awareness vaguely came into contact with the gateway to the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Immediately, Qin Yu poured even more amount of Origin Energy into it.
Qin Yu suddenly felt that there were two layers in the Jiang Lan’s Realm. One was the first layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm whereas the other was the second layer.
Qin Yu was delighted. Immediately, he disappeared.
“Where’s big brother?” Hou Fei and Hei Yu saw Qin Yu disappear in front of their eyes; they were unable to refrain their shock.
There are three spaces within the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Earlier, Qin Yu had directly entered the second space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm from the first space.
Inside the second space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
The second space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm was completely empty. Qin Yu appeared out of thin air. In front of Qin Yu was a person. WIth a deep and unflustered gaze, with a tranquil aura, the identity of the person was obvious.
“Uncle Lan.” Qin Yu was pleasantly surprised.
Uncle Lan was as unflustered as he was before. He lightly smiled to Qin Yu and said. “Little Yu, congratulations on opening the second layer space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Your cultivation speed is indeed very fast.”
“Uncle Lan, is this your image or your awareness?” Qin Yu asked.
“To be able to converse with you, what do you think it is?” Uncle Lan slightly smiled. “Little Yu, I want to ask you about a thing.”
“Uncle Lan, please ask away.” Qin Yu calmly waited for the question.
Uncle Lan opened his mouth. He then shook his head and took a deep sigh. Unexpectedly, he did not say anything. Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock. The Uncle Lan who he had always considered to be something who would be unbothered by even the heavens collapsing actually would have a moment when he was unable to say something.
“Your soul has condensed to a golden pellet, right?” Finally, Uncle Lan asked.
“Yes.” Qin Yu nodded. He opened his eyes wide and looked at Uncle Lan. “Uncle Lan, was this what you wanted to ask?” Qin Yu did not believe this question to be something that’s hard to ask.
Uncle Lan had a self mocking smile. A sparking tear seemed to have flashed through his eyes. However, when Qin Yu carefully looked to Uncle Lan’s eyes, he instead found that there were no tears at all. He ended up not knowing whether what had flashed by was actually tears or not, whether he was seeing things.
“Your soul has condensed to a golden pellet, I suspect you’ve managed to attain a part of what she left behind?” Uncle Lan took a deep sigh and then no longer held himself back.
“Her?” Qin Yu was shocked.
Could it be that Uncle Lan knows about that ‘Zuo Qiumei?’
After a moment, Uncle Lan regained his calmness from before. He lightly smiled to Qin Yu and said. “Let’s not talk about that. Qin Yu, continue to strive your hardest. With how you’re doing, if you continue on with it, then there would definitely be one day when you’ll be able to be together with Li’er. No one would be able to stop the two of you. I can guarantee you that!” Uncle Lan patted Qin Yu’s shoulder. With an extremely resolute expression, he looked at Qin Yu.
Qin Yu was able to sense that the hand that Uncle Lan placed on his shoulder was filled with power.
Uncle Lan’s guarantee? Qin Yu was startled.
“However, what’s most important is still that you’ll have to try hard yourself. It is not enough with only my help. Li’er is also trying her best. In the past, she disliked training. However now, she is also training her hardest. Merely, with her strength, it’s still impossible for her to leave the Divine Realm.” Uncle Lan slightly leaked some information about Li’er.
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his emotions.
At once, he came to find out that… Li’er was actually also striving her hardest.
“I will definitely continue to strive my hardest.” Qin Yu clenched his fists.
Uncle Lan happily nodded his head. His figure then disappeared. Only a voice remained. “Qin Yu, continue to strive hard. When you open the third layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm, I will try to find a way to allow you and Li’er to meet each other.”
Qin Yu nodded. At this moment, he felt that his body was filled with enthusiasm.
“Uncle Lan, thank you.” After calming himself down, Qin Yu thanked Uncle Lan in his heart.
Qin Yu knew that he, as a nobody from the Mortal Realm, would definitely have caused Uncle Lan to spend a great amount of effort to allow him and Li’er to be together. After all, Qin Yu was able to recall some of the things Uncle Lan had done for him.
“The next step shall be going to the Fourteen Star Emperor Level Dark Star’s green colored liquid cold pond. After that, I shall proceed toward the Bewitching God Temple!” Qin Yu thought in his heart. As long as it’ll help him in the Divine Realm in the future, Qin Yu would definitely go and do it.
Qin Yu returned to the first layer space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. He gathered Wu Lan, Ye Qu and a lot of other people together.
“Qin Yu, what’s the matter for you to find us?” Wu Lan asked while smiling. The other surrounding people were also curious as to why Qin Yu had gathered them. As for Hou Fei and Hei Yu who had already knew that Qin Yu had opened the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm; they were on the side smiling.
Qin Yu directly said. “Earlier, I opened the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm. In the Jiang Lan’s Realm’s second layer space, when one spends a hundred years in there, only a single year would be passed in the outside. Furthermore, the density of the Elemental Spirit Energy there is a hundred times that of the outside. Whoever wants to enter into it, do let me know.”
“A hundred years inside is a year outside?” Ye Qu’s eyes shined. With how fast Hou Fei and Hei Yu were training, they had already provoked Ye Qu to frantically train. With such a great opportunity in front of him, how would he possibly let it slip by? At once, Ye Qu said. “I want to go to the second layer space to train.”
Wu Lan also nodded. He said with a smile. “Consider me too. My soul’s level is indeed a bit too low.”
Qin Yu looked to them and then nodded. “Good. Wu Lan and Ye Qu shall temporarily enter the second layer of the Jiang Lan’s Realm to train. As for everyone else, if you want to enter into it, you can come and let me know.”
