Purple Mystic Star!
Seeing those words, Qin Yu appeared to be struck by lightning. Scenes immediately flashed through his mind. The scene of when he was training as a child, the scene when he was chatting with his big brother and second brother happily in the hot spring, the scene when he was together with his Royal Father…
Qin Yu felt as if his entire soul was throbbing. The impulse to return home had instantly lifted up heavy waves in the calm ocean that was Qin Yu’s mind. Qin Yu was unable to hold down that urge to return home at all.
“Uncle Fu, you said that I can reach the cosmic space listed in on the pillar just by entering it?” Qin Yu asked.
“That’s right. Why? Are you planning on entering one?” Upon seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Uncle Fu asked.
Qin Yu took a deep sigh. “The Purple Mystic Star is the place that I lived in my childhood. Although I have reached a level where I could rip apart space, it is still very hard for me to create a space channel that would allow me to reach the Mortal Realm. I still do not have the strength to do that.”
“Fortunately, Senior Chehou has already refined such a space channel.” Qin Yu was overjoyed.
“It is fine if you want to enter it. However, Qin Yu, you must definitely never forget to come back when you have the strength to open the entrance door to the Artifacts Palace.” Uncle Fu said, entrusting this task to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu nodded.
“Rest assured, I will definitely return.” After Qin Yu said those words, his gaze shifted toward the pillar in front of him.
Qin Yu took a step and disappeared into the pillar.
In an instant, everything changed.
Qin Yu felt that his body was rapidly passing through space. The only thing that he could see was the chaotic space rifts. It was something that Qin Yu would frequently see when he ripped apart spaces. After about seven breaths’ time, Qin Yu felt that the scene in front of him had changed.
The chaotic space rifts had disappeared. A boundless outer space appeared before Qin Yu.
“The gravitational force here is truly small.” Qin Yu turned around. He saw that there was an unremarkable space tunnel behind him. From a glance, this space tunnel appeared to be a black hole. Merely, the gravitational force of this black hole was too small.
Qin Yu understood that once he entered this black hole, he’ll be able to return back to the Bewitching God Temple.
Qin Yu remembered this place in his heart.
“The Purple Mystic Star ought to be not far away from here.” Qin Yu looked to the boundless outer space. He immediately started to spread out his Divine Awareness. Upon spearing out his Divine Awareness, Qin Yu discovered that the range of his Divine Awareness was much greater than the time when he was in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.
Qin Yu had a very clear-headed sensation that as long as he just slightly spread a bit of his energy, he would easily be able to rip apart the cosmic space of this Mortal Realm.
“The space here is indeed a level lower than the space of the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm.” Qin Yu waved his hand.
Instantly, a over ten thousand meters long enormous space crack appeared before Qin Yu. Engulfing energy was being emitted by this space crack unceasingly. Merely, this engulfing energy did not affect Qin Yu in the slightest. After a short moment, this space crack was automatically restored by the cosmic space.
“It would appear that what Zhou Xian did back then could not be considered as anything exceptional.” Gasped Qin Yu.
[TL: have to check out who Zhou Xian was. Dude’s Li’er’s cousin. That scrub who killed tons of mortals and almost killed Qin Yu.]
Back then, in front of Qin Yu, Zhou Xian was able to rip apart the space with a wave of his hand and easily extinguish everything in a location. The Qin Yu from back then was indeed shocked and stunned.
However, from the way it seemed now, the space that Zhou Xian ripped apart and extinguished back then was merely the space of the Mortal Realm. The space of the Mortal Realm was the lowest level space. Ripping apart such a space was nothing exceptional. The current Qin Yu was also capable of easily accomplishing such a thing.
“The Purple Mystic Star, its distance is indeed not far from here.” Qin Yu’s Divine Awareness had already covered the Purple Mystic Star that was located about half a galaxy away from where he stood.
With a Greater Teleportation, Qin Yu disappeared from the cosmic outer space.
Qin Yu stood on the Yellow Stone Star. He was looking at the enormous planet located not far from him…. the Purple Mystic Star. Back then, Qin Yu had trained on this Yellow Stone Star until he finally reached comprehension and attained the ‘Dark Star Realm’ of Stellar Transformation.
The Purple Mystic Star, when looking at it from the faraway Yellow Stone Star, one could still see that it was filled with torrent-dashing flames and a white colored mist. Those are naturally the Two Great Extreme Regions of the Purple Mystic Star. Qin Yu’s figure was rapidly flying toward the Purple Mystic Star.
As Qin Yu approached, he began to see the vast ocean of the Purple Mystic Star. He had also seen the Chaotic Astral Ocean located within the middle of the vast ocean. On the north of the Chaotic Astral Ocean was a small area of land. That was the Hidden Dragon Continent. The large area of land to the north of the Chaotic Astral Ocean was the Soaring Dragon Continent.
[TL: Qianlong Continent → Hidden Dragon Continent. Tenglong Continent → Soaring Dragon Continent]
As he looked at the various locations on the Purple Mystic Star, various scenes began to form in Qin Yu’s mind.
The time when he was training on the Hidden Dragon Continent.
The struggle and battles in the Seabed Cultivation Realm.
The frantic burning by the Heavenly Flames on the Soaring Dragon Continent.
Qin Yu stood in front of the Purple Mystic Star. However, he still did not go to the Purple Mystic Star. Only after a long time did Qin Yu manage to calm his disturbed frame of mind. He shook his head, forced a smile and sighed. “The closer to home, the more timid one gets.”
Soon after, Qin Yu’s figure disappeared. Evidently, he had arrived at the Purple Mystic Star.
Hidden Dragon Continent.
It had already been around four thousand years since Qin Yu ascended to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. In the period of four thousand years, numerous dynasties have succeeded through the Hidden Dragon Continent. There was no dynasty that was capable of having perpetual glory.
The Qin Dynasty of the olden days, the Han dynasty of the olden days, the Song dynasty of the olden days, they have all become things of memories.
In the current Hidden Dragon Continent where mortals lived, a rare unity has occurred.
The Tang Dynasty Empire!
Li Shi, the founding emperor of the Tang Dynasty Empire fought for close to half of his lifetime. In the end, he managed to unify almost the entire Hidden Dragon Continent. With the exception… of the restricted area of humanity, the Great Wilderness, which belonged to Demon Beasts.
The Tang Dynasty Empire had existed for over two hundred years. Currently, it is incomparably bustling. However, because it did not have any enemy, the hierarchy of the entire empire appeared to be decaying somewhat. The people sought for pleasure, beauty and longevity….
This had also caused true cultivators to become even more esteemed.
Tang Dynasty Empire. Broad Hill City.
The Broad Hill City was a remarkable large city of the Tang Dynasty Empire. The most famous things in this city is the beautiful women and the fine foods. The beautiful women of this city have attracted a great amount of gifted scholars. The fine foods have attracted some nobilities and people of high standings.
There was no need to mention how flourishing the Broad Hill City was. When night falls, lanterns were hung in all of the streets and alleyways of the Broad Hill City. The night was actually the most flourishing time for the Broad Hill City. People would walk about the street. There were many people wearing embroidered clothes. There were also servants following behind those people.
“Master, where are we heading to today?” A servant asked respectfully.
This master had a potbelly. He flicked his thin mustache with his pinkie finger. With a light smile, he said. “Today we shall go to the Moonlight Boat.”
“Yes, master.” Said the servant respectfully.
However, right at this moment…
A brilliant light landed from the sky. That was a sharp sword!
That master with the big belly’s expression immediately changed. He violently inhaled. That potbelly of his actually violently grew smaller. This master’s right fist had also grown red. Following a violent gale, this master violently smashed his fist forward.
His fist actually created sonic boom as it flew forward.
The longsword shattered. The assassin also spurt out a mouthful of blood before immediately escaping.
The servant’s eyes shined with a cold light. He was about to chase after the assassin. However, the master coughed. Indifferently, he said. “Don’t chase. That man is merely a bronze assassin of the Heavenly Net. Even if you chase him, it’s still useless.”
“Someone from the Heavenly Net?” The little servant’s expression also changed. “Master, then…”
“Return first. Whoever it is that wanted to kill me, they’ve actually only hired a bronze medal assassin. They truly are belittling me a bit too much.” This master’s complexion turned cold. He immediately turned around and proceeded to leave.
The scene that had just happened on the street was seen by many people in the restaurant beside the street.
“Heavenly Net? The Heavenly Net is actually still in existence.” Muttered a black clothed youth who sat in the restaurant.
This was precisely Qin Yu who had arrived on the Hidden Dragon Continent. Having returned to his hometown, Qin Yu did not immediately return home. Instead, he proceed to first get to know his hometown of four thousand years later first. Furthermore, Qin Yu’s Divine Awareness had covered the entire Purple Mystic Star. On the Purple Mystic Star, only his second brother, Qin Zheng, still remained.
As for his Royal Father Qin De, his big brother Qin Feng, Feng Yuzi and the others, none of them remained on the Purple Mystic Star. Even his little sister from back then, Little Lu, also disappeared from the Purple Mystic Star.
Qin Yu knew that the cultivation speed of his brothers and them could still be considered relatively fast. Adding on the treasures that he had left behind, the four thousand years was sufficient for them to ascend to the Immortal Realm. As for his second brother Qin Zheng, the fact that he still remained in the Mortal Realm now was also something that Qin Yu had anticipated. After all, the second brother Qin Zheng was the one with the slowest cultivation speed among the three brothers.
“That man from earlier was a bronze medal assassin from the Heavenly Net. Never had I expected that the hidden expert Boss Wang actually possessed such a strength.” Some of the sons of nobilities in the restaurant started chatting.
“Only a bronze medal assassin. It would appear whoever it was that wanted Boss Wang dead was unwilling to spend enough money. If they were to have requested for a ‘bone ash’ assassin from the Heavenly Net, who would possibly be able to escape?” Another son of nobility said.
Qin Yu was shocked upon hearing that.
Bone ash assassin?
Back when he was still in the Mortal Realm, it seemed that there were no such rank called ‘Bone Ash’ among the assassins.
“The changes of four thousand years is truly great.” Qin Yu lightly sighed. He then drank the wine in his cup. After all these years, the wine brewing skills of the Hidden Dragon Continent had actually increased greatly.
“Brother Li, I’ve heard that the eldest daughter of the number one martial family, the Qin clan, Miss Qin Yutong was about to arrive to the Broad Hill City. Do you all know of it?” Said a son of nobility.
“Brother Guo, I’ve already known about this. If I didn’t, why would I rush to this Broad Hill City? Furthermore, I know that Miss Qin Yutong ought to be arriving tomorrow.” Said that Brother Li.
“Miss Qin Yutong is the number one beauty amongst the martial world. If anyone were to be able to marry her, then not only would he obtain a beauty, he would also be able to learn the top martial techniques of the Qin clan.”
“That’s of course. The Qin clan has existed and inherited over three thousand years of martial techniques. There is absolutely no need for us to suspect of their strength.”
Immediately, a group of people started chatting around the topic of this ‘Qin Yutong.’
Qin Yu instead grew suspicious.
“For this Qin clan to be able to exist and inherit over three thousand years of martial techniques, this ought to have something to do with second brother.” Thought Qin Yu in his heart. However, according to Qin Yu’s thoughts, he did not believe that his clan would only be a mere martial arts clan.
Furthermore, after merely inspecting with his Divine Awareness.
In his family’s headquarters, the Flame Capital City, other than his second brother, Qin Zheng, there was also many Dujie level experts and Loose Immortal level experts. With such strength, the Qin clan was strong enough to compete against some of the cultivation sects of the Soaring Dragon Continent.
[TL: Dujie = about to undergo tribulation]
On the second day, Qin Yu also slightly observed that Qin Yutong. She was indeed an outstanding beauty. However, he did not care too much about her. Soon after, Qin Yu started roaming around the cities of the Hidden Dragon Continent.
After three days.
Qin Yu arrived at the Flame Capital City.
Flame Capital City was the headquarters of the Qin clan. Even after all these years, it is still the capital!
Although the dynasties of the Hidden Dragon Continent changed many times, all of the dynasties knew of one thing… there was a great hidden clan in the Hidden Dragon Continent, the Qin Clan. This clan possessed the strength to instantly destroy an entire dynasty.
Therefore, in all these years, the Flame Capital City has always been under the control of the Qin clan. The Prince Who Pacified the East’s Mansion from back then has already been renamed the Virtue Garden. In the four thousand years, the master of the Virtue Garden had always been from the Qin clan.
Qin Yu stood on the outside of this Virtue Garden by himself.
“I, have returned.” Said Qin Yu softly.
Outside of the gate of the Virtue Garden’s Mansion House. Other than Qin Yu, there was no one else who dared approach it. Whenever someone approaches the Virtue Garden’s Mansion House, the guards of the Virtue Garden would always ‘coldly’ stare at them. However, with Qin Yu standing there, the guards instead seemed to act as if they didn’t see Qin Yu.
Furthermore, even some of the people that were walking by acted as if they didn’t see Qin Yu. Whenever lights shined on the area that Qin Yu stood, they would automatically distort.
Qin Yu’s comprehension regarding the spatial laws was sufficient enough for him to distort the space and make it so that no others can see him. It might be that he was unable to accomplish such a thing so easily in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, the space of the Mortal Realm was extremely simple and effortless for Qin Yu to control.
At this moment, a father and daughter walked by. The woman was wearing a veil. The father was instead wearing plain and simple clothes.
Even though the woman was wearing a veil, Qin Yu was still able to see through her appearance. This woman was precisely that so called number one beauty of the martial world that Qin Yu had met yesterday, Qin Yutong.
“Father, why did the clan master gather everyone from the branch family over?” A twenty years old or so beautiful young lady said to the black clothed middle aged man beside him via voice transmission.
This middle aged man responded back indifferently via voice transmission. “Don’t ask. Our clan master has already dispatched the order for us to gather three days ago. He most definitely has something important to tell us.”
This pair of father and daughter were both using the voice transmission that internal experts were proficient in. With Qin Yu’s strength, he was able to easily hear their conversation.
The guards of the Virtue Garden’s Mansion House stopped this pair of father and daughter. This pair of father and daughter displayed their invitation card. Immediately, the guards allowed them entrance.
“Branch families? Never had I expected for second brother to separate our clan into different branches. However, this is also good.” Qin Yu was calmly looking from the entrance of the mansion house. In merely a day, many people had displayed their invitation cards and entered into the Virtue Garden’s Mansion House. These people had all come here either by themselves or with one or two people.
“Master, are you not coming in?” A voice sounded in Qin Yu’s mind.
Mind Voice Transmission. It was the Ink Qilin. Only the Spiritual Beast that possessed a soul connection with Qin Yu, Ink Qilin, knew that Qin Yu have arrived.
“Ink Qilin, you’ve told the news of my return to my second brother, right?” Asked Qin Yu through Mind Voice Transmission.
