Inside that floating stone house where several thousands of golden scrolls floated around it, Uncle Fu was seated at the side. He had a golden scroll in his hand. His eyes were slightly closed. That golden scroll in his hand was unceasingly radiating a golden light.
As for Qin Yu who was sitting cross-legged on top of the praying mat, his eyes suddenly opened. As if he had sensed Qin Yu opening his eyes, Uncle Fu looked to Qin Yu.
“Qin Yu, you? Why aren’t you continuing with the refinement of the Refining Flame Wristband?” Asked Uncle Fu with a puzzled expression. “Qin Yu, it’s only been over a dozen years. It’s still very early. The Grandmist Spiritual Treasures are already very hard to refine. If you’re able to finish refining it within several thousand years, then you’re already doing very well.”
Qin Yu smiled and looked to Uncle Fu. “Uncle Fu, you said something about several thousand years? I’m confused as to what you meant by that. I have already finished refining the Refining Flame Wristband.”
Uncle Fu was shocked.
“You said that you’ve succeeded in refining the Refining Flame Wristband?” Uncle Fu was filled with amazement.
“That’s right.” Said Qin Yu with a smile. “Why? Could it be that you don’t believe me?” With an intention of Qin Yu’s mind, the illusions in the outside of the house started to change.
The scene that was originally that of the cosmic outer space had turned into a scene with a little bridge, rivers and meadows. The originally floating house was now located on top of the meadows. As for the several thousand scrolls, they have been gathered together neatly to one corner of the house.
Seeing this scene, Uncle Fu said with a shocked expression. “Qin Yu, you…. no, Master!” Uncle Fu bowed respectfully. “From today on, you’re the master of the Bewitching God Temple and also my master.”
“Uncle Fu, there is no need. Just address me as Qin Yu.” Said Qin Yu nonchalantly.
Uncle Fu firmly shook his head and said. “When the old master left, he had commanded me that once the successor managed to control the Bewitching God Temple, he shall become my master. I cannot rebel against the command of the old master.”
Qin Yu understood it in his heart.
This Uncle Fu was a puppet created by Chehou Yuan. Uncle Fu naturally would not dare to resist the orders of Chehou Yuan.
“Master, please address me as ‘A’Fu.’ A’Fu is too ashamed and doesn’t dare to be addressed as Uncle Fu by master.” Said Uncle Fu respectfully. Although Uncle Fu was extremely happy when he was addressed as Uncle Fu by Qin Yu, but Chehou Yuan had also mentioned before that a puppet was only a servant.
A smile instead appeared on Qin Yu’s face. “Uncle Fu, I am now your master, correct?”
“Yes.” Said Uncle Fu respectfully.
“Could it be that you want to argue with me about what I want to call you?” Qin Yu asked with a smile. “I can call you whatever I wish to call you. From today on, you are still the Bewitching God Temple’s housekeeper. And I…. am still going to address you as Uncle Fu.”
Declared Qin Yu straightforwardly.
“Master.” Uncle Fu looked to Qin Yu. He was extremely moved.
He was a created puppet. Although he possessed emotion, intelligence and could even smile and get angry like man, but he was still unable to train. Even the energy within his body was provided by the Divine Spiritual Crystal Essence.
However, as he possessed emotions of humans, he naturally possessed a longing to be acknowledged by others.
Qin Yu addressing him as ‘Uncle Fu,’ had brought him a speechless moving sensation.
“Uncle Fu, you mentioned something about taking several thousand years to refine the Refining Flame Wristband, what do you mean by that?” Qin Yu was filled with confusion. “Didn’t I manage to successfully refine it in merely over a dozen years?”
At this moment, Uncle Fu’s attitude was clearly different.
Respectfully, he said. “Master, the Refining Flame Wristband left behind by the old master, because of the fact that it was personally refined and created by the old master and that the old master had also considered about his future successor, it was a lot easier to refine. With master’s current soul’s level as well as your True Flame’s level, it should require you several thousand years to succeed. For master to succeed in merely over a dozen years, even I am unable to understand how master was able to do it.”
“Oh?” Qin Yu naturally recalled the scene when he was refining the Refining Flame Wristband.
After Qin Yu dripped blood on the Refining Flame Wristband and became its master, he had instantly refined around ten percent of the Refining Flame Wristband. Later on, using his soul’s power as well as the Black Divine Flame, he managed to refine another ten percent after spending several years. Finally, he moved the Refining Flame Wristband into the Stellar Space.
After it absorbed that ‘flour paste energy,’ the speed of the refinement started to increase rapidly. The first month was the fastest. Ten percent was instantly refined in a month. Later on, the speed became slower and slower. The later on, the slower it became. It ended up taking ten years to refine the Refining Flame Wristband in the Stellar Space and a total of more than a dozen years to successfully refine the Refining Flame Wristband.
“Master, I had originally estimated that you’ll be able to immediately refine ten percent of the Refining Flame Wristband at the beginning. Afterwards, you’ll be able to refine another ten percent in about five year’s time. After that, another ten years to refine another ten percent. The speed then grows slower and slower. The final ten percent, I had estimated that it would take about two to three thousand years for you to refine it.” Said Uncle Fu respectfully.
Qin Yu was listening to the pattern that Uncle Fu spoke of.
The speed at which the Refining Flame Wristband absorbed the ‘flour paste energy’ was exactly like how Uncle Fu described. It gets slower and slower… at the same time, the speed of the refinement was also slower and slower. The final ten percent took close to five entire years.
“Master, your speed of refinement was extremely fast. I have followed old master for all these years and yet have never heard of someone managing to refine a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure so fast like master did. Unless, unless an expert of the Exalted Celestial level were to help.” Said Uncle Fu with a low voice.
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
His refinement speed being fast have nothing to do with the help from Exalted Celestial level expert. Instead, it was because of the ‘flour paste energy’ that his Stellar Space absorbs.
“This ‘Stellar Transformation,’ ever since it reached the ‘Black Hole Stage,’ and opened a channel to another space, the evolution of the ‘Stellar Transformation’ martial technique had entered into a different evolutionary path.”
Qin Yu knew that the Stellar Space was located in an extremely vast and boundless ‘flour paste space.’ What exactly was this ‘flour paste space?’ Why was it that the core of the Stellar Space, the ‘Origin,’ only absorbs the ‘flour paste energy’ in order to evolve?
“The current ‘Stellar Transformation,’ had reached the Middle Stage Origin Stage. It is not far away from reaching the Late Stage Origin Stage. However, what would be the next stage after the ninth stage, the Origin Stage?”
Qin Yu was very certain in his heart that if the ‘Stellar Transformation’ martial technique were to continue its development like this, and if each of the step in the development were to be a correct step, then it would likely become extremely powerful.
However, mishaps could also occur in matters like creating your own martial technique. If a mistake were to be made, it would be possible to cause the ‘Stellar Transformation,’ to walk down a different branch. While the different branch might also give birth to a good accomplishment in the future, it would not reach an extremely powerful level.
“There are no benefits to over thinking such matters. Perhaps when the moment comes, a moment of enlightenment would allow me to know what to do.”
Qin Yu stopped pondering about the future of the ‘Stellar Transformation.’
“Uncle Fu, I reckon it’ll also take a long period of time to refine the other three Grandmist Spiritual Treasures?” Qin Yu looked to Uncle Fu.
Uncle Fu nodded and said. “Yes, that’s right. Master, the speed of the refinement of the other three Grandmist Spiritual Treasures ought to be slower than the Refining Flame Wristband’s. According to my estimates, master would likely have to spend…. eh, even I do not know how long it would take master to refine them.”
At the current moment, Uncle Fu was also not daring to make assertions of the master that stood before him. The numerous years of experience that he had gathered beside Chehou Yuan had turned useless before Qin Yu.
Qin Yu lightly smiled. “Well then, let’s leave here first then.”
“Yes, master.” Said Uncle Fu respectfully.
The Bewitching God Temple was floating within the outer space. Qin Yu and Uncle Fu were outside of the Bewitching God Temple.
Qin Yu extended his right hand. On his arm was the Refining Flame Wristband. The Refining Flame Wristband started to shine a faint red light. The Bewitching God Temple immediately decreased in size rapidly. It then turned into a ray of light and entered into the Refining Flame Wristband.
“Uncle Fu, let’s go!” Said Qin Yu, he was about to rush into the dense and foggy Divine Illusion Barrier before him.
“Master, you are now the master of the Bewitching God Temple. As for those trifling matters, you can just let me resolve them.” Said Uncle Fu respectfully. He then pointed to the space not far to the east of the two.
A ring radiating a three colored light suddenly appeared there.
“This is?” Although Qin Yu had become the master of the Bewitching God Temple, he did not know much about Uncle Fu.
“Master, this is a Conveying Array. In all these years, I have been in the Bewitching God Temple without anything to do. Thus, I had created a Conveying Array here. Another one was created outside of the Cosmic Golden Fragmentary Stream. They were created so that in the future when I leave from here with the new master, we would not have to go through the troubles of going back and forth through the Divine Illusion Barrier.” Said Uncle Fu with a smile.
Qin Yu lightly nodded.
He also didn’t feel like rushing through that Divine Illusion Barrier. Qin Yu directly followed Uncle Fu and entered into the Conveying Array. Following a flickering of lights, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu disappeared from the Conveying Array.
Qin Yu and Uncle Fu continued on with their journey. Uncle Fu’s flying speed was extremely fast. However, he was unable to use Teleportation or Greater Teleportation because he did not possess a soul.
Thus, Qin Yu could only bring Uncle Fu along with him as he used Greater Teleportation.
On the journey, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu chatted with each other. Through that, Qin Yu managed to get to know a lot of Uncle Fu’s secrets.
Uncle Fu was extremely powerful. Although he was unable to use Teleportation or Greater Teleportation, he was able to travel tens of thousands of miles in a blink of an eye. His speed was ten to a hundred times faster than Qin Yu.
Because Uncle Fu’s body’s toughness had already reached the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact level, even High Level Heavenly Deities’ bodies were unable to match his in toughness. Furthermore, a lot of formation arrays and barriers were placed within his body to increase his speed. One could easily imagine how fast Uncle Fu was.
At the same time… Uncle Fu was a great expert in the arts of formation arrays and barriers!
Having followed Chehou Yuan for all those years, Uncle Fu had been researching the ‘Array Path,’ the entire time. The nine hundred scrolls of the ‘Array Path,’ it was likely that Uncle Fu would be able to remember them word for word with his eyes closed.
It was so much so, that with the comprehension that Uncle Fu had toward the nine hundred scrolls of the ‘Array Path,’ Uncle Fu had actually written a set of ‘Array Path’s Comprehensions.’ He had written a total of over ten thousand scrolls. Merely, those Golden Scrolls were placed within Uncle Fu’s personal Storage Divine Artifact.
Furthermore, because Uncle Fu did not possess a soul, he was unable to comprehend out a stage. This caused… Uncle Fu to struggle in the first level of the ‘Array Path’ the entire time.
Back then, when Chehou Yuan decided to relearn the ‘Array Path,’ he spent a billion years researching the first level.
However, what about Uncle Fu? He had followed Chehou Yuan for all these years and had been researching the first level of the Array Path the entire time. The amount of time he spent on it was so long that it was unknown how many billions of years it had been.
The current Qin Yu knew that Uncle Fu was a master in the arts of formation arrays and barriers. However, the actual strength of Uncle Fu’s formation arrays and barriers, he had still yet to know about them.
Without truly researching the nine hundred scrolls of the ‘Array Path,’ it was impossible for Qin Yu to know of Uncle Fu’s true strength in the field of formation arrays and barriers.
