This was a beautiful valley. It was the intoxication of a beautiful spring day. The water of that several thousand foot tall and close to a hundred foot wide waterfall, was falling from high above. If was as if there was a curtain of white pearls hanging down from the sky. Under the sunshine, the waterfall’s splashes appeared like pearls as they radiated a touching luster.
Qin Yu was standing in front of this pond of water.
The waterfall was falling unceasingly. Behind the waterfall was a steep and extremely straight rock wall.
“There’s actually no danger here at all.” Qin Yu was shocked to discover that the Bewitching God Painting displayed that all of the routes were safe. Evidently… there was no danger whatsoever in this valley.
Qin Yu carefully looked everywhere. There were flowers and plants filled with vitality, clear lake water, a warm breeze… everything had signified that there was nothing special here. However, why then did the master of the Bewitching God Temple hide this room?
“Wu Lan, I’ve entered a hidden room. I opened it by chance. However now, I am unable to find anything special about this room.” Qin Yu once again sent a Mind Voice Transmission and asked Wu Lan.
With Wu Lan here, if Qin Yu didn’t ask him and instead let his imagination run wild, then he’d truly be an idiot.
Ever since the first time Qin Yu asked Wu Lan about the Bewitching God Temple after entering it, Wu Lan had stopped his training. He knew that Qin Yu might ask him again at any moment. Hearing Qin Yu’s question, Wu Lan pondered for a moment. He then said via Mind Voice Transmission.
“Qin Yu, I had never seen any hidden room like the one you spoke of, while I was still living in the Bewitching God Temple. However, according to my understanding of the master of the Bewitching God Temple, he is not a senseless person. As he has concealed the room, there must definitely be an important reason for him to do so. Oh, that’s right, what does the Bewitching God Painting show?”
“Nothing, the Bewitching God Painting shows that everything here is safe.” Qin Yu replied. He was still carefully inspecting everything with his eyes. At the same time, he had slowly spread out his Divine Awareness.
“The Bewitching God Painting actually displayed that everything’s safe. Qin Yu, you should explore the area carefully. You must also carefully examine even the things that are unremarkable. You might even be able to obtain a pleasant surprise.” Said Wu Lan while smiling.
Qin Yu nodded.
Qin Yu walked forward slowly. He was looking through his surroundings. His Divine Awareness was also carefully inspecting everything in this valley.
“Mn?” Qin Yu’s moving gaze suddenly locked on to a location… the waterfall! To be more exact, it was the mountain wall behind the waterfall. The mountain wall was yellow but Qin Yu clearly saw that there was a cyan colored wall behind the waterfall!
With how accurate Qin Yu’s sight was, he instantly determined that there was a cave behind the waterfall!
“There’s actually a cave behind the waterfall. Had I not carefully inspected my surroundings, then I suspect I wouldn’t have been able to spot the cave when it showed up for an instant.” With a step, Qin Yu’s body flickered and shot toward that waterfall.
After passing through the waterfall, Qin Yu sensed that the scene in front of him had changed.
Refreshing. This was the first sensation Qin Yu felt when he entered the cave. The entrance to the cave was about four meters wide. After merely walking three or four steps, Qin Yu had entered the cave dwelling. The arrangement of the cave dwelling was extremely relaxed and natural.
A ancient dark black colored wooden table was in the middle of this cave. Beside the table was a chair.
There were some swaying hammocks in the cave too. It was likely that when the master of the Bewitching God Temple grew bored, he would rest on those hammocks. There was even a bend of creek water in the cave.
Crawling mountain plants were on one wall of the cave. The other wall of the cave was covered in a scarlet red color. It was like a red-heated boiler. There was unexpectedly a row of words on that scarlet colored wall.
“To have come to my cave dwelling, it seems fate has brought us together. The things that I left behind in the Bewitching God Temple, you can have however many you’ll be able to obtain. I am not afraid that you’ll take too much, all I’m afraid of is that you won’t be able to take them with you…
Written by Che Hou.”
“Che Hou?” Qin Yu was slightly startled. “Che Hou seems to be a name. Chehou is also a family name. Is the master of the Bewitching God Temple called Che Hou or is his family name Chehou?”
Back in the Hidden Dragon Continent, Qin Yu had indeed came across the surname Chehou. Although it was very rare, but there were still people with that surname. However… it was hard to tell whether or not there are people with this surname in the Divine Realm.
[TL: Hidden Dragon Continent = Qianlong Continent]
“Was this row of words written using his fingers? His calligraphy is actually pretty good.” Qin Yu walked to this scarlet colored mountain wall. However, on the bottom of the scarlet wall was a stream of water. Qin Yu was unable to get very close to the wall.
After being separated by a the stream of water, Qin Yu stood merely a few meters away from the wall. Using his Divine Awareness, Qin Yu carefully inspected this row of words. Qin Yu knew that he cannot let anything slip by in here.
“I do not believe that this hidden room’s purpose is only to leave a series of words for me.” Qin Yu carefully inspected the words with his Divine Awareness. Not only the words, Qin Yu was also carefully inspecting the scarlet wall. After inspecting for a long time…
The expression on Qin Yu’s face started to change. Initially, he had a confused appearance. However, slowly… he displayed a pleasantly surprised expression.
That scarlet wall was slowly trembling at an almost invisible speed. Space ripples were passing through and forth the surface of the wall.
“So it’s like this.” Qin Yu took out a Divine Sword. He held it in one of his hands and then suddenly jumped. The Divine Sword started to draw on the wall. A flamboyant carving. Soon after, a word appeared on the wall.
This Yuan that Qin Yu wrote covered almost the entire wall.
“Buzz!” The space inside the cave started to vibrate. Suddenly, the entire space appeared to have been immersed in a layer of gold color. A dazzling white light shot out from the Yuan that Qin Yu carved.
The white light that shot out suddenly turned into a person.
This person was very handsome. Merely, the hair on his temples was already white. He appeared to be forty years old. However, his handsome face appeared to be only twenty or thirty years old. His gaze was extremely deep and serene. An indifferent expression was on his face the entire time. It seemed that nothing could change his expression.
“Hello, I am called Chehou Yuan.” Said the man with white hair on his temples.
“Chehou Yuan, so he’s actually called Chehou Yuan.” Qin Yu came to an understanding. However, Qin Yu had a feeling… that this man in front of him ought to be an image that was left behind and not a part of the Bewitching God Temple.
Chehou Yuan continued. “This is an image I left behind. For you to be able to discover the barrier I left behind, signifies that your soul’s level is pretty decent and could be comparable to pretty powerful Deities. For there to be an expert like you in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, it is truly surprising.”
Qin Yu was confused. If someone from the Divine Realm were to descend to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, wouldn’t they be able to enter here just like he did?
“Although I, Chehou Yuan, do not possess great strength, this Bewitching God Temple of mine possessed a barrier effect toward those from the Divine Realm…. Even if a Godking wanted to enter it, he’d have to spend a large amount of energy. Furthermore, if the Bewitching God Temple were to encounter some of the Godking level expert intruding upon it, it would also self destruct.” Said Chehou Yuan indifferently.
Qin Yu was excited.
Although he did not know how strong the level ‘Godking’ was, for them to be able to become ‘Kings of Deities,’ they were most definitely extraordinary.
“Since you’ve found this location and also opened the image I left behind, you shall become the sole person with the opportunity to obtain the greatest treasure of my Bewitching God Temple. Of course… as to whether or not you’ll obtain it, will depend on your luck as well as your ability.” Chehou Yuan continued.
Merely by listening to Chehou Yuan’s words, Qin Yu had already had a favorable impression towards him.
Although there was no smile on Chehou Yuan’s face, his speech gave off an amiable sensation.
“For you to be able to come here, you could also be considered a genius in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. Now then, before everything else, let me introduce the Divine Realm to you.” Chehou Yuan continued. Qin Yu instead grew puzzled.
For what purpose did this Chehou Yuan leave behind a hidden room and this image?
Merely, the curiosity Qin Yu had for the Divine Realm had caused him to continue paying close attention and listen. After all, Wu Lan was merely a low level character in the Divine Realm and didn’t even know a lot of the fundamental stuff about the Divine Realm.
“Divine Realm is a Cosmic Space of an even higher level than your Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. If my guess is correct… the Divine Realm ought to be the peak of all Cosmic Spaces!”
Chehou Yuan said slowly. “The Divine Realm contains within it ‘Divine Spiritual Energy’ and gives off an extremely strong oppression toward those who ascend to it. Usually, the Deities that have just ascended, upon entering the Divine Realm, would be oppressed by the Divine Spiritual Energy to a level where they would barely be able to walk.”
Qin Yu was startled.
This Divine Realm was truly a bit too astonishing. This Divine Realm was much stronger than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. Even Deities that have just ascended to the Divine Realm would barely be able to walk.
“The experts of the Divine Realm, to put it simply, are separated into Two Great Stages. The first stage is the Deity Stage. The second stage is the Heavenly Deity Stage! The Deity Stage was separated into Low Level Deity, Mid Level Deity and High Level Deity. Above that are the Low Level Heavenly Deity, Mid Level Heavenly Deity and High Level Heavenly Deity!” Upon reaching this part of his speech, Chehou Yuan slightly stopped. It was as if he knew that this information would stun Qin Yu.
Qin Yu was indeed somewhat shocked.
“So the Divine Realm’s experts are actually separated into different levels like this!” Qin Yu had a relaxed sensation. The most frightening thing was the unknown. In the past, he didn’t know anything regarding the Divine Realm. However now, he finally knew that the people in the Divine Realm were primarily separated into the Deities and Heavenly Deities.
“The soul of Deities is the ‘Golden Soul Pellet’ stage whereas the soul of Heavenly Deities is the ‘Embryo Soul’ stage. At the same time… the energy the Deities use is merely Divine Energy whereas the energy Heavenly Deities use is Heavenly Divine Energy.” Chehou Yuan continued.
Qin Yu frowned.
From what he had heard, it seems like the gap between Deities and Heavenly Deities was pretty great.
Suddenly, Chehou Yuan’s mouth was slightly raised. It was as if he had a feeling of disdain. “In the Divine Realm, although one’s strength and soul is important, but other than those, weapons are also very important.”
“Weapons are divided into Low Quality Divine Artifact, Mid Quality Divine Artifact and High Quality Divine Artifact; and above those are the Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts for a total of six great grades.” A slight confidence suddenly appeared on Chehou Yuan’s face. “Divine Artifacts are usually used by Deities. Divine Artifacts are merely very ordinary weapons. Ordinarily, anyone possessing strength would be able to take one out. Upon pouring one’s Divine Energy into the Divine Weapon, one would be able to exhibit a formidable power. As for Heavenly Divine Artifact, they are generally used by Heavenly Deities… a good Heavenly Divine Weapon was capable of allowing one to skip past levels and kill those above.”
“Of course, the power of the weapon is not all there is to it. With a good stratagem, a good method, or a good sneak attack, Deities can still kill Heavenly Deities.” Said Chehou Yuan indifferently.
Qin Yu was instead a bit puzzled.
Deities were divided into Low Level, Mid Level and High Level. Heavenly Deities were divided into Low Level, Mid Level and High Level. The Heavenly Deities possessed both stronger strength and soul than Deities; so how would a Deity be able to kill a Heavenly Deity?
“The reason why Heavenly Deities are powerful, is mostly because of their ability to control the space. Their levels are divided into Low Level Heavenly Deity, Mid Level Heavenly Deity and High Level Heavenly Deity according to their ability to control the space.” Once Chehou Yuan finished these words, Qin Yu suddenly came to a realization.
So it turns out that Heavenly Deities were actually ranked like that.
“The Deity and Heavenly Deity that I spoke of earlier are only the major levels. I myself am a High Level Heavenly Deity.” Said Chehou Yuan indifferently. Only now did Qin Yu know of the strength of the master of the Bewitching God Temple.
The strongest amongst the Heavenly Deities!
“Above the High Level Heavenly Deities is another level.” Chehou Yuan continued. “That is the Godking level! Godkings are practically unequalled existences in the Divine Realm. Godkings are people who have completely comprehended the spatial laws!”
Qin Yu nodded in his heart.
Heavenly Deities experts were differentiated through their comprehension of the spatial laws. However, the Godkings have completely comprehended the spatial laws. Their strength was almost unimaginable.
“In the Divine Realm, to a certain degree, the Godkings are the strongest existences. Merely… all of the Divine Realm experts know that there is actually another level above the Godkings! An omnipotent existence that could split the heaven and earth apart…. Exalted Celestial!” Upon reaching this point, Chehou Yuan’s expression had also slightly changed. It seemed as if he grew a bit excited.
Qin Yu felt that his heartbeat had suddenly stopped.
Merely the title of Exalted Celestial had already gave Qin Yu an oppressive sensation.
“After completely comprehending the spatial laws, one will become a Godking! Although there are only so many Godking level experts in the Divine Realm, those Godking level experts still seek a higher level. They seek to comprehend and control an even higher law… the temporal laws! Upon completely comprehending the temporal laws and the temporal laws, one would become a Exalted Celestial.”
Chehou Yuan gasped. “Legends say, that Exalted Celestials are able to split the heaven and earth apart and bring about the apocalypse. Even if their soul were to be destroyed, as long as their True Spirit remained, the Exalted Celestials are able to come back from the dead. This is the power of Exalted Celestials; the absolutely unequalled, absolutely supreme power!”
Qin Yu felt as if he was unable to breathe.
Merely this Chehou Yuan had already given him an incomparably oppressive sensation. However, the Godkings were even stronger. To have completely comprehended the spatial laws, just thinking about it was already scary. Yet, above it… was the Exalted Celestial.
Exalted Celestial! In front of an Exalted Celestial, everyone was just powerless ants. With a wave of his hand, the entire world would crumble!
“Even with my status in the Divine Realm, I have still only seen extremely exceptional Godkings. As for Exalted Celestials… I was lucky to have a chat with a Exalted Celestial. However unfortunately, I was unable to see this Exalted Celestial’s face the entire time.” Sighed Chehou Yuan.
Qin Yu had a speculation in his heart.
This Chehou Yuan ought to not be an ordinary High Level Heavenly Deity. According to what he had said, Exalted Celestials are practically people of legends in the Divine Realm. However, Chehou Yuan was actually able to have chat with a Exalted Celestial. Even though they have not met, it was still a shocking thing.
“I have told you all this to allow you to have a rough understanding of the expert levels in the Divine Realm. Actually, in the Divine Realm, as long as you can reach the Heavenly Deity level and not offend anyone, you’ll be able to walk with your head up. After all… the Divine Realm is extremely boundless and there are only that many Godkings. With their status being that high, Godkings would not randomly come and handle a nobody like you.” Said Chehou Yuan indifferently.
Qin Yu understood very well about what Chehou Yuan’s intention was.
It was likely that it would be extremely hard for him to meet a Godking, much less a Exalted Celestial.
