The calm and indifferent expression that the White Profound Lord Ju Mi originally had suddenly disappeared. An astonishing cold ray of light burst forth from his eyes. He stared at the Blazing Profound Ring on Qin Yu’s finger. Black Flame Lord Wu Shan’s expression had also turned serious.
“Liu Xing, from where did you obtain this Blazing Profound Ring?” The White Profound Lord Ju Mi stared at Qin Yu with an extremely serious expression.
Qin Yu took a glance at the White Profound Lord and the Black Flame Lord. He nodded and said. “I obtained this Blazing Profound Ring from Immortal Emperor Ni Yang from the Immortal Realm. You could consider that he gifted it to me.”
“Gifted it to you? Impossible.” Said the White Profound Lord coldly. “Ni Yang knew of the usefulness of this Blazing Profound Ring. He would definitely not gift it to others.”
“However, he had died.” Qin Yu said directly. “If he was still alive, then perhaps he would not gift it away. However, he was about to die. As someone who was about to die, how would they care about mere worldly possessions?”
Qin Yu lightly smiled and said. “Your Majesty Black Flame Lord, Your Majesty White Profound Lord, the two of you might not know of this. I have once wandered the Immortal Realm and the Demon Realm. This Blazing Profound Lord was obtained through my luck. I know that… Your Majesties possessed a friendly relationship with Immortal Emperor Ni Yang. I hope that the two of you are willing to honor the Blazing Profound Ring and help me this one time.”
The Black Flame Lord sighed and said. “Can you tell me how he died? Before Ni Yang died, he had once sent a transmission to us saying that he would definitely die. Merely, no matter how Ju Mi and I ask him, he still refused to tell us the cause of his death.”
The White Profound Lord also looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu understood the reason why. He reckoned that Immortal Emperor Ni Yang who was poisoned by a poisonous bug of the Divine Realm was embarrassed to tell his good friends. All the way till the time before his death, this Ni Yang likely was unable to bear to contain his secret anymore and ended up telling Qin Yu who have found his Ni Yang’s Realm.
“Your Majesty Black Flame Lord, Your Majesty White Profound Lord, to be honest, Immortal Ni Yang’s death is somewhat vexed. Before he died, he also did not wish for the reason of his death to be known and spread about. Please forgive me.” Qin Yu did not say the reason.
The Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord took a glance at each other and sighed.
“Vexed death, I truly do not know how vexed Ni Yang’s death was.” The Black Flame Lord took a deep sigh. He then looked to Qin Yu. “Liu Xing, since you’ve obtained this Blazing Profound Ring, we most definitely could help you out with a trifling matter like refining a passage title plate.”
The White Profound Lord also nodded.
Qin Yu felt a bust of relaxation.
His gamble was a success.
Qin Yu was also without any other choice. Otherwise, how would be possibly take out the Blazing Profound Ring? Taking out the Blazing Profound Ring, Qin Yu had even worried that the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord might think that he was the one who killed Ni Yang. He had even prepared a large amount of excuses. Fortunately… Immortal Ni Yang had communicated with the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord before his death.
“Thank you Your Majesties.” Qin Yu said his thanks.
The White Profound Lord said indifferently. “No need. If you want to thank someone, then thank Ni Yang. Unfortunately, Ni Yang has died, sigh…”
As Qin Yu and the other two were chatting on the side hall, the couple people in the main hall also started discussing. The topic of their discussion was whether or not Qin Yu would be capable of persuading the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord.
“You all know of His Majesty White Profound Lord’s temperament. He’s not that easily persuaded.” Vice Sect Master Bao Yu said with a smile.
Vice Sect Master Liu Lan had his eyes closed as if he didn’t care in the slightest.
“From the way I see it, as that Liu Xing is that anxious of going to the Bewitching God Temple, he ought to have prepared a method to persuade Ju Mi and Wu Shan. Although I am also unable to think of a reason as to how he’ll persuade them.” Laughed the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan.
Wen Feng who stood down below had been wondering the entire time whether or not Qin Yu’s reason would be able to persuade the White Profound Lord.
“They’ve come out.” Said the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan while smiling. At the same time, he looked to the door to the side hall. Wen Feng, Liu Lan and the rest of them all looked over too. They saw Qin Yu and the White Profound Lord and the Black Flame Lord walking out from the door.
Upon seeing Qin Yu’s expression, everyone had an idea in their mind.
“Consecrated Liu Xing’s mood seems to be pretty good. I suspect he managed to successfully persuade Wu Shan and Ju Mi.” Said Xing Yuan while laughing.
Qin Yu was about to speak but the Black Flame Lord Wu Shan instead opened his mouth first. He laughed loudly. “Liu Xing had given us a pleasant surprise. Mn, we’ll help him refine a passage title plate.”
The White Profound Lord also nodded.
“Are we refining it here?” Asked the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan.
Both the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord nodded. They did not object to it.
Qin Yu was instead shocked. Could it be that one could refine the passage title plate anywhere? There was no need for any preparation at all?
Wen Feng who stood to the side saw Qin Yu’s puzzled expression. He said via voice transmission. “Liu Xing, refining a passage title plate is extremely hard for us. However, to the Three Majesties, it’s something that can be done in the blink of an eye.”
“Good. As this is my first time refining a passage title plate, therefore I shall be the one deciding its appearance.”
The Gold Punishment Lord flipped his hand around and took out a dark black colored metal. A burst of Gold Force was emitted from his palm and wrapped around that dark black colored metal. Under the powerful control of the Gold Force, the appearance of that metal started to change.
In merely a blink of an eye, this dark black colored metal turned into a hexagon shaped title plate. On the front side was the word ‘Title’ whereas the back side had a vivid and lifelike sculpture. It was precisely the sculpture of the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan himself.
“Xing Yuan, you’re truly narcissistic.” Upon seeing the sculpture, the Black Flame Lord Wu Shan started laughing out loud. Everyone in the main hall was also unable to refrain themselves from laughing.
Xing Yuan said in a deadly earnest tone. “This is likely the only time that I would get to refine a passage title plate, you should all be a bit more serious. Well then…. the appearance has been set. Wu Shan, Ju Mi, let’s refine it.”
The White Profound Lord and the Black Flame Lord nodded.
The expressions on the Three Great Sovereigns all turned serious. Soon after, they all extended their right palm simultaneously. From the center of the palms of the three people, three rays of lights simultaneously shot out. One of the rays of light was golden colored. The other was white colored and the last one was black colored. The three rays of lights gathered on that title plate.
Qin Yu narrowed his eyes in front of the light.
“The power of inherited treasures.” Qin Yu was able to clearly sense that the three rays of lights all contained a mysterious energy. The aura of the energy was exactly the same as the aura of the energy of the seal at the entrance of the Bewitching God Temple.
In an instant, the Three Great Sovereigns withdrew their hands simultaneously.
And at this moment, faint light was wandering about the surface of the title plate. After a brief period of refinement, this title plate had changed, becoming something more than just an ordinary metal.
The Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan held the title plate in his hand. He looked at the sculpture of himself on the back side. After appreciating it for a short period of time, he threw the title plate to Qin Yu. “Liu Xing, take it.” Qin Yu immediately caught it.
“It is very easy to use this passage title plate. You merely have to bring it to the entrance of the Bewitching God Temple and then pour Gold Force into the passage title plate; the title plate itself will then naturally emit a ray of energy into the seal on the Bewitching God Temple. When that happens, the seal will disappear for a short moment. At that time, you should use that opportunity to enter the Bewitching God Temple. When leaving, the method is the same. You’ll have to pour in Gold Power and it’ll start the energy within the passage title plate.” Explained the Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan attentively.
The Black Flame Lord Wu Shan laughed. “Liu Xing, you’d best not randomly go and pour in Gold Force and enter the Bewitching God Temple because you’re bored. The amount of energy contained within this title plate is not a lot. I suspect it’ll only allow you to use it three or four times. If you were to use all of the energy contained within it, then you won’t be able to open the seal to the Bewitching God Temple anymore.”
Qin Yu grabbed the title plate in his hand. His mood was extremely good.
He was able to clearly sense the energy within this title plate. The aura of the energy was the same as the aura of the seal. Merely, the amount of energy within the title plate was not much to begin with and would likely only work for a couple times.
“Liu Xing, this time, the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord have specially come over to help you out. I already had people prepare a banquet. You must properly entertain the two of them.” The Gold Punishment Lord Xing Yuan said to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu nodded. “Of course.”
Having obtained the passage title plate, Qin Yu enthusiastically entertained the Black Flame Lord and the White Profound Lord. By the time the second day came, Qin Yu proceeded to leave for the Bewitching God Temple by himself.
Having comprehended things for three thousand years, Qin Yu’s Golden Soul Pellet was already at a level where even ordinary Deities fall short.
Adding on the Meteoric Tear, a single Greater Teleportation from Qin Yu was sufficient to cross over an entire star field. With the speed of Qin Yu’s Greater Teleportation…in merely a short period of time, Qin Yu had arrived on the closest galaxy to the Bewitching God Temple. On this galaxy, Qin Yu did not dare to use Greater Teleportation anymore. Instead, he used the Interstellar Conveying Array to reach the Dragon Arrow Star.
On the Dragon Arrow Star.
“Your Lordship, you’ve come again?” That personnel in charge of the Interstellar Conveying Array was unable to refrain his shock. Qin Yu had come once not long ago.
“That’s right, I’ve come again.” Said Qin Yu while beaming with smiles. His current mood was great.
Qin Yu then turned into a ray of light and was shot toward the Cosmic Space. Qin Yu started to fly toward the Bewitching God Temple rapidly… however, no matter how fast he flew, it was still much inferior to teleportation. For a distance less than half a galaxy, Qin Yu had spent a long time flying through it.
By the entrance to the Bewitching God Temple.
Elder Lian Fan was still sitting cross-legged in front of the entrance. Guarding the entrance of the Bewitching God Temple could be considered as a boring job. However, as Elder Lian Fan was calmly training, time also passed by quickly for him.
The scene of that expert called Liu Xing attacking the seal a couple days ago, would be occasionally remembered by Elder Lian Fan. He gasped in his heart. “Lord Liu Xing is truly amazing.”
“Lian Fan.” A familiar voice sounded.
Elder Lian Fan immediately opened his eyes. Upon seeing the person who have arrived, he immediately said respectfully. “Lian Fan pays his respects to Lord Liu Xing. May I know what business Lord Liu Xing might have… could it be, Your Lordship is going to break the seal?”
Qin Yu flipped his hand around and took out the passage title plate. “This time around, I’ve brought the passage title plate with me.”
Upon seeing the passage title plate, Elder Lian Fan gasped in his heart. ‘He is indeed a super expert. He was actually able to make the Three Great Sovereigns break the rules and personally make him a passage title plate.’
“Lord Liu Xing, congratulations on obtaining the passage title plate.” Lian Fan said promptly.
“Move aside first.” Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
“Yes.” Lian Fan moved aside. He then looked to Qin Yu. To see someone enter the Bewitching God Temple… that too was a difficult scene to come by.
The passage title plate started to float in front of Qin Yu. Qin Yu pointed at it with his hand. A Gold Force energy was poured into the passage title plate. Immediately, the passage title plate started to vibrate.
A three colored light was shot out from the passage title plate. It shot toward the seal on the Bewitching God Temple’s entrance.
The seal that merely jolted under the all out attack from Qin Yu, after being shot by the three colored light, actually opened like curtains being pulled apart. The energy of the seal pulled apart to two sides. The tunnel to the Bewitching God Temple was exposed.
Qin Yu retrieved the passage title plate. His figure turned into a ray of light and he immediately rushed into it.
After a short moment, the seal started to slowly close again.
The black speck-like matter was over ten meters thick. After passing through the tunnel, Qin Yu saw the external region of the Bewitching God Temple!
Seeing it with his eyes….
Fog covered his view. The entire external region of the Bewitching God Temple seemed to be enveloped by a layer of fog. When Qin Yu flew forward a couple more steps, he discovered that landslides, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and so on would occasionally appear within the fog…
“It would appear that this is the illusion barrier of the external region of the Bewitching God Temple.” Qin Yu knew quite a bit regarding the Bewitching God Temple.
The external region of the Bewitching God Temple was covered in a Divine Barrier. To be more accurate, it was covered in a Divine Realm’s Illusion Barrier. The area that the barrier covered was extremely vast. It’s area was comparable to a hundred ordinary stars. This had also caused the Illusion Barrier’s power to not be very powerful.
The most important thing was… this Illusion Barrier did not possess the power to kill someone. It merely possessed the ability to trap someone.
However, if one were to be trapped in this Illusion Barrier for hundreds of millions of years, then it would also be very difficult to bear.
Ordinary, when people enter into the Bewitching God Temple, they would only go about this external region covered by the Illusion Barrier. That was because the area this barrier covered was truly too great. Thus, its strength was not large. As long as one does not enter the depths of the Bewitching God Temple and only move about the fringe, then by relying on one’s Soul’s Power, one would still be able to exit the Bewitching God Temple.
“Let’s see, with my soul’s level, how far in will I be able to go?” Qin Yu’s Divine Awareness immediately started to permeate into the Illusion Barrier. Qin Yu was able to clearly sense that the moment his Divine Awareness entered the Illusion Barrier, he felt as if his Divine Awareness had sunk into a quagmire. It was very hard for him to continue to spread it forward.
After a short moment.
“This is my limit. Not even a millionth of the distance that the Illusion Barrier covers.” Qin Yu clearly sensed that… there were three Divine Artifacts floating in the areas where his Divine Awareness spreaded out to.
Qin Yu flipped his hand and took out the Bewitching God Painting.
A misty radiance was shining in the surroundings of the Bewitching God Painting. Qin Yu muttered out loud. “Illusion Barrier? I have no time to waste on that.” A part of Qin Yu’s awareness entered into the Bewitching God Painting. The route to the Inner Palace of the Bewitching God Temple appeared in his mind. Merely, this route was changing unceasingly.
Qin Yu took a step. He had instantly entered into the foggy land covered by the Illusion Barrier.
With the routes pointed out by the Bewitching God Painting, Qin Yu had been turning left and right unceasingly. He had even turned back…. However, Qin Yu knew that this was the closest route. After six hours, Qin Yu had managed to travel half the distance.
Within this half distance that he had traveled, Qin Yu had already collected thirty six Divine Artifacts.
Some of the time, he merely needed to turn back and spend some time in order to pick up a Divine Artifact. However, Qin Yu was disinclined to even turn back to pick them up. That was because he knew… if he wanted to obtain it, it’d be extremely easy.
“When Ni Yang entered the Bewitching God Temple with the Bewitching God Painting for the first time, he had surprisingly only obtained more than a dozen or so Divine Artifacts. His soul’s level was too weak, much too weak.” Qin Yu sighed in his heart.
Qin Yu continued onward with a fast speed. His Divine Awareness had covered a wide area around him.
Ni Yang, when he entered the Bewitching God Temple for the first time, the distance his Soul’s Power covered was less than a thousandth of what Qin Yu currently covered. Thus, how could he possibly be able to compare with Qin Yu?
