As Qin Yu listened to Jiang Yan’s speech, he deeply remembered every single sentence that she said, so that he could analyze the hidden meaning behind every sentence.
As he analyzed those words, he managed to come up with a lot of theories.
One cannot speak more than needed. If one does, then one would easily let words slip!
When Jiang Yan was telling Qin Yu, although she remembered the stern order given to her by Uncle Lan, Granny Yin Hua and everyone, telling her that she was not allowed to speak of some important matters, she still managed to unintentionally expose some of the hidden information. Although she did not pay attention to it as she was speaking, Qin Yu instead managed to guess all of them.
“Yan’er, you said earlier that your big sister only started to become pursued by a large amount of people after the ‘Heaven Startling Battle;’ and that it was also at that time Uncle Lan became overly concerned about her. Can you tell me what kind of battle this ‘Heaven Startling Battle was?’” Qin Yu asked.
Qin Yu’s intuition told him that all of the changes ought to be related to this ‘Heaven Startling Battle.’
“The Heaven Startling Battle is of course an extremely amazing battle. It’s merely some of the powerful experts of the Divine Realm fighting each other. What’s special about it?” Jiang Yan was not at all enthusiastic toward that ‘Heaven Startling Battle.’
“Which experts?” Qin Yu continued asking.
“You won’t know them even if I tell you about it. How many people of the Divine Realm do you know? Among those in the battle, much less you, even I don’t know many of them.” Jiang Yan curled her lips and said.
Qin Yu nodded.
Regarding this ‘Heaven Startling Battle,’ Qin Yu was also not in a rush to know more about it. After all, the current him doesn’t know anything about the famous people or the numerous powers of the Divine Realm. It was not too late for him to slowly investigate the Heaven Startling Battle after he has reached the Divine Realm.
What Qin Yu longed for the most, what he wanted to know the most was… where exactly in the Divine Realm was Li’er’s home?!
Qin Yu looked at Jiang Yan and said with a serious tone. “Yan’er, is it possible for you to tell me where in the Divine Realm is your home located?” Qin Yu merely needed to know the name of the location. As long as he knew the name, it would become very easy for him to search for it after he reaches the Divine Realm.
Jiang Yan looked to Qin Yu with a smile yet not a smile.
“Qin Yu, hehe, I knew that you would ask that. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you.” Said Jiang Yan with a smile.
Qin Yu frowned. “Yan’er, I know that this might be an order given to you by Uncle Lan or Granny Yin Hua. However, I still wish that you can tell me where exactly Li’er lives. You ought to be able to understand the impatience in my heart.” Qin Yu was staring at Jiang Yan.
Jiang Yan felt somewhat uncomfortable being stared at by Qin Yu.
She too knew about the relationship between her big sister and Qin Yu. Jiang Yan who loved dreaming had even thought this relationship, the love between a youth from the Mortal Realm and a girl from the Divine Realm was very romantic.
“I….” Jiang Yan was about to refuse.
Qin Yu immediately interrupted. “Yan’er, in all these years, from the time when I was in the Mortal Realm till now, I have been trying my hardest the entire time! I have never once given up. All I want is to know the location where your sister, Li’er, is at right now.”
“I understand that,” Qin Yu took a deep sigh, “the reason that Uncle Lan and everyone doesn’t want me to know about Li’er’s location, is most likely because they are worried that I would be unable to hold myself back and would rush to her immediately after reaching the Divine Realm only to encounter danger. Is that right?”
Jiang Yan nodded. She didn’t say anything, she merely looked at Qin Yu.
Qin Yu smiled bitterly. “Unable to hold myself back? Indeed. This has been in the depths of my heart for all these years; I do not even have any means of getting in touch with Li’er. Do you know how much I wish to hear Li’er’s voice? Unfortunately, I can only hear her voice in my dreams.”
Qin Yu closed his eyes. “Even though several thousand years have passed, once I close my eyes, I am able to clearly see the smiles and the scowls that Li’er had shown me before. It is so clear like it was engraved in my soul. Unless my soul gets scattered, I would never forget about it in eternity.”
Qin Yu suddenly stepped forward. He grabbed Jiang Yan’s shoulders with his hands. He opened his eyes and stared at Jiang Yan. “Yan’er, I ask of you, please, I ask of you! You can be at ease, I will not be impulsive. Having wandered the world for all these years, I am already no longer that foolish youngster that doesn’t know about anything. I know how to endure silently, I know!”
Qin Yu’s tone was very firm. His eyesight was burning.
As if she had been influenced by Qin Yu, Jiang Yan took a deep breath and then said slowly. “Okay then, I’ll trust you.”
Qin Yu was overjoyed. He then pricked up his ears to carefully listen to what Jiang Yan was about to say.
Jiang Yan said slowly. “My big sister is currently still in the clan. The location where our clan is located in is the Divine Realm’s…” Upon reaching this part, Jiang Yan’s voice grew silent.
Qin Yu looked to her. He was shocked to discover that Jiang Yan’s mouth was moving but no voice was being sounded.
“Yan’er, you are too hot-headed.” A voice sounded.
With a silver flower hairpin on her head, with an appearance like that of an kind elderly lady, Granny Yin Hua was walking over with her walking stick. And only at this moment did Qin Yu manage to sense that… the space surrounding Jiang Yan had been completely distorted. It was as if it had been separated from the external world.
Jiang Yan immediately started acting coquettishly and begged for forgiveness. Although Qin Yu was unable to hear her voice, he was able to guess it just by looking at her coquettish appearance.
“I’ll let this time pass, sigh.” Said Granny Yin Hua helplessly.
“Thank you granny.” The distorted space surrounding Jiang Yan had instantly returned to normal.
Qin Yu was certain about one thing: This Granny Yin Hua’s ability to control the space surpassed his own by far. It was so great, that even with the assistance of the Meteoric Tear, Qin Yu was still unable to detect the slightest aura from her.
Qin Yu knew that with the assistance from the Meteoric Tear, his Divine Awareness had barely reached the level of Low Level Heavenly Deities. From this, he was able to determine that… Granny Yin Hua’s strength was greater than that of a Low Level Heavenly Deity.
“Yan’er, you ought to know about how serious this matter is. If this foolish boy were to be truly unable to resist himself in the end and frantically go to your home to find Li’er, then once the news of that spreads, this foolish boy would then lose his life. Then….” Granny Yin Hua shook her head and sighed.
Jiang Yan didn’t dare to say anything anymore.
“Your big sister is a very gentle and quiet person. However, her heart is extremely unyielding. The things that she determines, there is no one who can force her to change her mind. With your sister’s temperament, if this boy were to die, then even if your big sister did not search for death with him, her temperament would likely still take a huge change.” Granny Yin Hua’s tone was serious. “I have watched you and your big sister grow up, there is no one who knows the temperament of you two sisters better than I.”
Qin Yu’s heart moved as he continue to hear from the side.
This Granny Yin Hua was the one who raised Jiang Yan and Li’er.
“Qin Yu, you ought to have guessed my identity. That’s right. I’ve raised Yan’er and Li’er. Their meals, their sleep schedule, their training and even their amusements were all my responsibilities. In my heart, I have long since considered them to be my own granddaughters.” Granny Yin Hua coughed and said.
“Granny.” Jiang Yan grabbed one of Granny Yin Hua’s arm. She rocked it back and forth and shouted like a spoiled child.
“Okay, stop fooling around.” Granny Yin Hua smoothed Jiang Yan. She then turned around to look at Qin Yu. “Qin Yu, there are not many things that Li’er would conceal from this old woman. I know of the things between the two of you. I also know what Li’er is thinking in her heart. Thus, I support Lan, Lord Lan’s plan.”
As Qin Yu heard Granny Yin Hua, he took note of the ‘Lord Lan.’
What does Lord Lan signify?
Does it merely signify that within Li’er’s clan, Uncle Lan possessed a higher status that Granny Yin Hua?
“Thus, Li’er true identity, where Li’er is at, and everything else; neither I nor Yan’er will tell you about them…. when the time comes, Lord Lan will naturally tell you about them.” Said Granny Yin Hua.
Qin Yu nodded.
From Granny Yin Hua’s tone as well as her gaze, Qin Yu was able to tell that she was not someone that could be persuaded just by using emotions.
“I know that Lord Lan regarded you as very important. Furthermore, he believed that your future prospects are boundless. He firmly supported you being together with Li’er. Haha…. Qin Yu, let me tell you, had it not been for Lord Lan, it would’ve been impossible for Li’er to resist her father’s command.” Laughed Granny Yin Hua.
Qin Yu didn’t say anything. He merely continued to listen.
“To Lord Lan, you are someone with boundless future prospects. This time, the reason why Yan’er and I came to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm was precisely to see who exactly is the genius that Lord Lan had regarded as so important. However, the first time I saw you, I was relatively disappointed.” Granny Yin Hua spoke without holding anything back.
Qin Yu was still silent as before.
He too came to understand now why Jiang Yan was especially interested in him the first time he met her. So it turned out that these two people came to the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm precisely to check him out.
“I was unable to see what exactly about you deserves for Lord Lan to regard you with such importance!” Said Granny Yin Hua with a very heavy tone.
Granny Yin Hua’s manner of speaking was unpleasant to hear. Thus, Qin Yu was unable to refrain from slightly frowning.
“That was the reason why the battle of the Reef Yellow Star came to be. Emperor Yu used the great formation array to bind you. I wanted to use this to see your potential. If you are to be unable to break through even such a difficulty, then in the Divine Realm with numerous more obstructions, how would you be able to break through them?” Granny Yin Hua started smiling. “However, from what it seems now. Lord Lan is worthy of being Lord Lan, his foresight is far above mine.”
At this time, the gaze Granny Yin Hua looked at Qin Yu was like the gaze a mother-in-law looked at her son-in-law — extreme fondness.
“Not merely above but far far above!” Granny Yin Hua gasped in admiration incessantly. “No matter how hard I try, I am unable to understand how, with your aptitude, since last time we met, in merely a bit over three thousand years, your soul has actually reached such a level; it’s about to reach the High Level Deity stage.”
While one’s strength was easy to train, one’s soul was hard to train.
“Usually, the time it would require for one’s soul to reach the Low Level Deity stage from the level nine Immortal Emperor stage would be extremely long. To reach the Mid Level Deity stage from the Low Level Deity stage is even more difficult! Under normal circumstances, for one’s soul to reach the Low Level Deity stage from level nine Immortal Emperor stage would require close to a hundred million years.”
“However, you, in merely over three thousand years, such an aptitude… I have never seen such a frightening speed before in my entire lifetime.” Granny Yin Hua shook her head and ridiculed herself. “And here I was, thinking that your aptitude was not up to much. Lord Lan’s vision is truly vicious.”
As Granny Yin Hua said those words, she had walked up to Qin Yu.
She patted Qin Yu’s shoulder and then said kindly. “With your astonishing cultivation speed, if you were to persist on training, I think…. in several tens of thousand of years, you’ll be able to reach the Heavenly Deity stage. With your astonishing aptitude and the assistance from Lord Lan, it is still possible for you to be together with Li’er.”
Qin Yu nodded.
“Although you possess an astonishing aptitude, I am still unable to determine how your aptitude is so astonishing.” Thought Granny Yin Hua in her heart. “How is it possible that in merely over three thousand years, his soul would be able to reach such a state?”
At this moment, Qin Yu said. “What granny had said, Qin Yu will firmly remember it in his heart. Is there anything other advice granny might have for Qin Yu?”
Towards Granny Yin Hua who had raised Li’er, Qin Yu was extremely respectful.
Granny Yin Hua said in realization. “Now that you mentioned ‘advice,’ I remembered something very important. Granny Yin Hua’s expression grew serious. Solemnly, she said. “Qin Yu, you must remember this thing.”
Qin Yu was startled by Granny Yin Hua’s expression. His ears immediately opened wide to listen to what Granny Yin Hua was about to say.
“There’s something very important?” Jiang Yan who stood to the side muttered in confusion.
Granny Yin Hua then said to Qin Yu. “From your current strength, I can tell that your Divine Tribulation should be coming soon. The thing that I am about to tell you is in regard to the Divine Tribulation. Qin Yu, you must remember that when you are undergoing the Divine Tribulation to not use the Jiang Lan’s Realm. Furthermore, you must also not use your hidden trump cards.”
“Trump cards?” Qin Yu looked to Granny Yin Hua with a confused expression.
Qin Yu had already decided that he was going to take on the Divine Tribulation with Hei Yu and Hou Fei. At that moment, the three brothers would be able to ascend to the Divine Realm together. With the three of them taking on the Divine Tribulation together, it was possible that the might of the Divine Tribulation would increase greatly. However, Qin Yu was still very confident in himself.
“Why am I not allowed to use it? When I take on the Divine Tribulation, I will definitely be doing it in a hidden location. Even if I were to use the Jiang Lan’s Realm, others would not know about it. No one would know about it. So why not?” Qin Yu was a bit confused.
Granny Yin Hua shook her head and said with a slight smile. “There’s someone who will know! The people from the Divine Realm! Qin Yu, let me tell you, the Divine Realm is not as simple as you imagine it to be. Did you perhaps think that the Divine Realm merely possesses some powerful experts separated into a few different powers?”
Qin Yu was stunned.
“No, the Divine Realm is involved in the operation of the cosmos, it involves the cosmic space. In short, the Divine Realm is extremely complicated. It is not as simple as you imagine it to be. If you do not wish to create difficulties for yourself, then when you are undergoing the Divine Tribulation, do not use the Jiang Lan’s Realm or your hidden trump cards.” Granny Yin Hua said.
Qin Yu came to realize.
“If the treasure I use to take on the Divine Tribulation are too powerful, then they would likely be lusted after by the big shots in the Divine Realm.” Qin Yu thought in his heart. “However, even if I do not use powerful treasures, it is still very easy for me to take on the Divine Tribulation.”
Qin Yu was extremely confident.
“Well then, this is all that I want you to know. Just remember these two points. First, when undergoing the Divine Tribulation, hide all your trump cards. Second, do not be reckless and go find Li’er. When your strength reaches the needed level, Lord Lan will naturally come to your assistance.”
After Granny Yin Hua finished her words, she looked to Jiang Yan. “Yan’er, it’s time for us to return. The time we have been in the lower realm this time around is relatively long. If we do not return now, it’ll become a bit troublesome.”
“Mn.” Jiang Yan nodded. She then looked to Qin Yu. “Qin Yu, I’m going back to the Divine Realm now. You better try harder. Do not make my big sister wait too long.” After biting her lip a couple times, Jiang Yan said softly. “Big Brother Qin Yu, if Big Brother Luo Yu were to have any troubles, I wish that you’ll lend him a hand. Please.”
Qin Yu slightly nodded. “You can be reassured.”
Granny Yin Hua and Jiang Yan bid their farewells with Qin Yu with a smile. Immediately after, the two of them flew toward the horizon. A golden gate suddenly appeared in the sky. Just like that, Granny Yin Hua and Jiang Yan stepped into the golden gate and disappeared. The golden gate had also vanished.
Blazing Sun Star. On this large brown mountain, there was only Qin Yu raising his head toward the sky.
Afterwards, with a movement of his body, Qin Yu also disappeared.
