That Liu Qiyan could be considered as being calm as he did not flip out and act violently. After he finished receiving the taxes, he decided to go to Zi Yun’s house. After that, he brought his subordinates with him and left the Sealfeel Village and returned to the Black Dragon Pool.
As for what exactly this Liu Qiyan had talked about in Zi Yun’s house, Qin Yu wasn’t sure. However, what Qin Yu did know was, that in the end, Zi Yun’s family had agreed to the marriage between her and Xing Yuan. That was because on the third day of the tax collection, Zi Yun’s parents, Zi Yun and Xing Yuan had invited Qin Yu and his brothers to go to Yuchi City with them.
What good was it to pay taxes once every thousand years? In the past, Qin Yu was unable to understand the reason for the taxes. He now however understood it…. at the very least, there was a completely maintenanced government road. Furthermore, there were army troops stationed along the road to ensure that the people traveling the road would not be robbed by bandits.
“Little brother Qin Yu, I have walked down this road numerous times in my lifetime. However, this time around is the happiest I’ve been. Haha…” Zi Yun’s father, Zi Futian laughed and said.
At this moment, Xing Yuan said in a slightly respectful tone. “Lord Father, how much longer will it take for us to reach Yuchi City?”
Upon hearing this, Qin Yu and his brothers started to smile.
“Hell, you’ve already started saying ‘Lord Father’ before you’re even married. Not bad.” Hou Fei patted Xing Yuan’s shoulder and said in a jokingly tone. Zi Futian instead started laughing and said. “Sealfeel Village is located very far away from Yuchi City. I estimate that it’ll still take two more days of travel.”
As the group of people journeyed to Yuchi City, Zi Yun had been walking next to her mother and chatting with her. Contrary to expectations, she was not together with Xing Yuan.
After about two days, Qin Yu and them could finally see Yuchi City in the distance. Yuchi City was like an enormous vicious beast that has been lying in wait the entire time. That sort of ancient aura caused Qin Yu’s heart to be completely stunned.
“Uncle Zi, do you know how many years of history Yuchi City possesses?” Suddenly, Qin Yu asked curiously.
Zi Futian smiled and said. “Of course, Yuchi City’s history is as long as the Divine Realm’s. They are both about a two quadrillion and a hundred million years old.”
“Truly ancient.” Qin Yu gasped in admiration.
“All the major cities of the Divine Realm have been in existence since the Divine Realm first appeared. They have also never been destroyed before. Furthermore, the Divine Spiritual Energy within the cities is extremely tranquil and gentle. One can easily absorb them to train. As for the reason why these cities are so peculiar, even now, no one knows about the secret to it.” Zi Futian said with a sigh.
Qin Yu, Hou Fei, Hei Yu and the rest all nodded.
Merely, Qin Yu had another theory in his mind. “I suspect it isn’t that no one knows about the secret but rather that those who know have never told others.”
“Lord Father, can you tell us a bit about the Divine Realm? We know too little about the Divine Realm.” Xing Yuan said with extreme modesty.
Qin Yu and his brothers also looked to Zi Futian.
“Haha, I am merely an ordinary resident of the Divine Realm, how much more would I be able to know about the Divine Realm? I merely know a bit about the eastern region of the Divine Realm.” Zi Futian started to talk about it slowly. “Of the Eight Great Sage Emperors of the Divine Realm, the Utmost East Sage Emperor’s power range is located in the eastern region of the Divine Realm. As for the Utmost East Sage Emperor himself, he lives on top of ‘Mount Dazzling Gold.’”
“Mount Dazzling Gold?” Qin Yu and the rest were all surprised.
They did not know anything about this.
“You all know how special the Divine Realm’s space is. In the Divine Realm, flying is a sort of extravagant hope. One can only fly when one has reached the Heavenly Deity level. Furthermore, for non-living things to float in the air, it is something that is even harder to imagine. However, Mount Dazzling Gold is precisely a floating mountain!” Said Zi Futian solemnly.
Floating mountain, Mount Dazzling Gold? The dwelling place of the Utmost East Sage Emperor?
Qin Yu remembered it in his heart.
“There are a total of sixty four cities underneath the Utmost East Sage Emperor. These sixty four cities are all of the same type. As for the core of the eastern region of the Divine Realm, it is Mount Dazzling Gold. Of course, it is impossible for regular people like us to go to Mount Dazzling Gold.”
Zi Futian laughed and said. “Now that I’ve talked about Mount Dazzling Gold, let me talk about Yuchi City. Yuchi City, a long long time ago, was not called Yuchi City. The reason why this city is currently called Yuchi City is because the city’s governor is Lord Yuchi. The number one clan in Yuchi City is the Yuchi Clan! The governor of this Yuchi City is also the number one expert in the region surrounding Yuchi City!”
“Number one expert? How strong is he?” Qin Yu asked.
“Big brother Qin Yu, the governor of Yuchi City is extremely powerful. Even that Lord Black Dragon of the Black Dragon Pool is greatly inferior to the governor of Yuchi City.” That Zi Yun had also walked over. She smiled and said.
Qin Yu lightly nodded to Zi Yun. “Zi Yun, do you know what level expert that Lord Yuchi is?”
“I think, I think he’s a High Level Heavenly Deity.” Said Zi Yun without absolute certainty. She then said with definite certainty. “However, the governor of Yuchi City is extremely powerful. In the entire range of Yuchi City, there is no one that can rival him.”
Zi Futian lightly smiled and said. “The boss of the Black Dragon Pool… Lord Black Dragon, although he can also be regarded as being very powerful, he is different from the governor of Yuchi City. Back then, Lord Yuchi followed the Utmost East Sage Emperor to numerous wars and achieved great contributions. In the end, Utmost East Sage Emperor bestowed this city to Lord Yuchi.”
“Numerous wars? There are also large scale battles in the Divine Realm?” Qin Yu was slightly surprised.
“Of course there are.” Said Zi Futian with a smile. “It would be impossible to not know this as long as one has lived for several billions of years in the Divine Realm. In the Divine Realm… every six billion years, all of the major powers of the Divine Realm will go to war with each other. The war is extremely bitter and desperate…”
Zi Futian gasped in admiration.
Every six billions years, a large war that extends through the entire Divine Realm would occur?
“Lord Yuchi is a great expert who has moved through the Divine Realm unhindered. There are also a large number of Heavenly Deities that have died by his hand. How could someone like the boss of the Black Dragon Pool be comparable to Lord Yuchi?” Gasped Zi Futian with admiration.
In Zi Futian’s heart, this boss of the Black Dragon Pool was simply not someone that could match up to the governor of Yuchi City.
“Come, let’s go into the city.”
At this moment, Qin Yu and them had already arrived at the entrance of the city. The soldiers who guarded the entrance inspected the group’s identity title plates and then received the fee to enter into the city before allowing Qin Yu and them to enter into the city.
Upon entering Yuchi City, Qin Yu and them all felt the tranquility and docility of the Divine Spiritual Energy within the city. Absorbing and refining such Divine Spiritual Energy was simply incomparably effortless. Inside Yuchi City, Qin Yu and them directly proceeded towards the City Governor’s Palace’s Property Selling Bureau.
All of the houses and buildings inside Yuchi City were controlled by the city. Thus, everyone would naturally have to go to the same location to purchase houses.
This was Qin Yu’s first time in Yuchi City. Upon viewing the different kinds of constructions and buildings in Yuchi City, Qin Yu had to admit that the arrangement of the city was truly good. Although they were all different and irregular, they gave off a charming effect and were not disheveled in the slightest.
Medicinal Herbs Store, Weapons Store, Leisure Teahouse, Stone Carving Store, all sorts of stores appeared before Qin Yu. Qin Yu was surprised to discover that there were actually a lot of places in the Divine Realm for leisure and enjoyment.
Following a shout, a line of troops that numbered at the very least in the several hundreds were running in perfect harmony on the street. In the sky above this group of people was a man wearing a standardized golden battle armor, flying with his hands behind his back.
“It’s a Heavenly Deity.” Zi Yun pointed to the man in the sky in surprise.
Qin Yu and the rest also raised their head up to look.
“That man is definitely a Division Commander or a Legion Commander of the Yuchi City Army.” Zi Futian said to Qin Yu and them.
“In Yuchi City, ten soldiers compose a small squadron. A hundred soldiers compose a mid squadron. A thousand soldiers compose a large squadron. Ten thousand people compose a division. A hundred thousand soldiers compose a legion. Among them, in order for one to become a Legion Commander, the requirement is that one must reach the Heavenly Deity level. There is no such requirement for the Division Commander. However, a lot of the Division Commanders of Yuchi City are Heavenly Deities.”
Zi Futian had already lived for several billions of years. The knowledge he possessed was clearly very vast.
“Ahead is the Property Selling Bureau. Let’s go buy the house.” Qin Yu said.
Just like that, Qin Yu and them entered into the City’s Property Selling Bureau. The Property Selling Bureau was a very large two storied building. When Qin Yu and them walked into the Property Selling Bureau, there were already a lot of of people inside it.
There was only a single service personnel in the Property Selling Bureau. It was a yellow clothed woman.
“There are jade slips over there. They contain information on the empty houses inside the city. You all can go and check it out for yourselves. If you manage to find any that you like, just tell me about it.” The yellow clothed woman did not look at Qin Yu’s group at all. She merely said those words indifferently.
“Big brother, this woman’s attitude is truly lacking.” Said Hou Fei to Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
Qin Yu nodded and smiled. “There’s nothing we can do about it. All the properties in Yuchi City belong to the Governor. Even though her service attitude is lacking, there is nothing that we can do about it. All we can do is to tolerate her attitude.”
Qin Yu thought of a thing.
For a number one artifacts craftsman like the ‘Craftsman God’ Chehou Yuan, if he were to act arrogant against those major powers of influences, those major powers of influences would still have to tolerate him. Wasn’t this the same principle?
While Qin Yu and his brothers were chatting with each other, Xing Yuan, Zi Yun and them had gone to the jade slips to inspect the currently available empty houses.
After a living discussion, Xing Yuan, Zi Yun and them finally decided. Xing Yuan walked to that yellow clothed woman. With a smile on his face, he said. “We have decided. We would like to purchase Yuchi City’s North City District’s number 8793043 house.”
“There are only thirteen houses left in the North City District. This house that you chose is the best among them. You all truly have good eyesight.” Said that yellow clothed woman with a light smile. “You can pay the price now. It’s a total of two million two hundred eighty thousand Low Quality Divine Spiritual Stones.”
Xing Yuan and Zi Yun glanced at each other. They smiled as they took out two hundred twenty eight High Quality Divine Spiritual Stones.
That yellow clothed woman received the two hundred twenty eight High Quality Divine Spiritual Stones. She nodded and then flipped her hand and took out a hexagonal key. At the same time, she also took out a jade slip. However, right at this moment…
“Little Yan.” Following a voice, a golden battle armored man walked in.
“It’s that Heavenly Deity from earlier.” Said Hou Fei to Qin Yu via voice transmission. Qin Yu nodded. He naturally remember that Heavenly Deity that they saw earlier. However, the person that Qin Yu took note of was another person.
Right after that golden battle armored man walked in, a white clothed youngster also walked in following him.
“That youngster is an expert. A Heavenly Deity level expert.” Qin Yu was able to clearly sense the aura from that white clothed youngster.
When that white clothed youngster walked in, he proceeded to walk to the jade slips and start inspecting the housing situation in Yuchi City. As for the golden battle armored man, he had walked to the yellow clothed woman.
“Ah, Legion Commander Liu, is there anything you need?” That yellow clothed woman’s smile had instantly turned brilliant. She completely ignored Xing Yuan and Zi Yun.
That Legion Commander Liu nodded. He said. “I remember that in the North City District, there was a house close to the ‘Empty Condor Pavilion.’ I shall take that house, remember that for me.”
“Yes, Legion Commander Liu.” Said that yellow clothed woman at once.
Zi Yun said to Xing Yuan in a low voice. “Big brother Xing Yuan, of the thirteen houses in the North City District, wasn’t ours the only one that’s close to the ‘Empty Condor Pavilion?’”
Xing Yuan also remembered. He immediately said to the yellow clothed woman. “Young lady, we have already purchased that house. We have even handed over the two hundred twenty eight High Quality Divine Spiritual Stones to you.”
“Mn?” That golden battle armored man frowned. “Little Yan, what’s going on?”
That yellow clothed woman called ‘Little Yan’ said with a smile. “It’s nothing.” As she said that, she looked to Xing Yuan. “His Lordship Legion Commander Liu have decided to take this house. Furthermore, I do not have any records of the selling nor have I given you all the key to the house yet. That house is technically still not yours yet.” As she said that, the yellow clothed woman placed the two hundred twenty eight High Quality Divine Spiritual Stones on the table.
“Take those Divine Spiritual Stones back first. Look for a different house.” Said the yellow clothed woman straightforwardly.
Zi Yun and Xing Yuan glanced at each other. They then glanced at that Lord Heavenly Deity. They felt anger in their hearts. However, what can they do? Are they to fight over a house against a Heavenly Deity?
“What a Heavenly Deity!” Qin Yu frowned. He did not interfere. His gaze was suddenly cast toward that white clothed youngster that had been inspecting the houses the entire time.
“North City District? All of the thirteen empty houses in the North City District, I’m taking them all.” Said the white clothed youngster with a smile as he raised his head.
Not only Xing Yuan, Zi Yun and them, the yellow clothed woman, the Legion Commander Liu and the other people who were inspecting the houses all looked to the white clothed youngster. Qin Yu and his brothers also looked to the white clothed youngster.
“You are…” Legion Commander Liu looked to the white clothed youngster with a frown. Only now did he discover that there was such a super expert behind him.
That white clothed youngster lightly smiled. He flipped his hand and took out a golden colored title plate. “I am a large squadron captain of the Mount Dazzling Gold’s cultivators, Huang Jing. I have brought my subordinates to Yuchi City and might be staying for a relatively long period of time. These thirteen houses are barely enough for us to live in.”
“Mount Dazzling Gold’s cultivator!”
Legion Commander Liu’s expression took a huge change. That yellow clothed woman’s expression also took a huge change.
“A large squadron captain from the Mount Dazzling Gold?” Legion Commander Liu only felt a burst of pressure on his chest. He immediately squeezed out a smile and said respectfully. “So it’s actually senior Huang Jing. His Lordship the City Governor has already ordered this junior to receive senior. Never would I have expected that senior had already arrived. This junior has already made arrangements beside the City Governor’s Palace…”
“No need. I’ll take the thirteen houses in the North City District. You can just go and inform Uncle Yuchi about it. What? Is there a problem?” This white clothed youngster called Huang Jing looked at Legion Commander Liu.
“Of course not!” Said the Legion Commander Liu straightforwardly.
“Uncle Zi, how powerful is this Huang Jing? Does the large squadron captain of the Mount Dazzling Gold’s cultivator possess a very high status?” Asked Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to Zi Futian.
At this moment, Zi Futian was looking at Huang Jing with a blazing expression. He replied back to Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “In the Eastern Region of the Divine Realm, over half of the Heavenly Deities are on the Mount Dazzling Gold. They number about ten thousand people. The cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold, the weakest among them are Low Level Heavenly Deities. The cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold are already people who possess special privileges. However, this Huang Jing is actually a Large Squadron Captain of the Mount Dazzling Gold.”
Qin Yu was unable to refrain himself from looking at this seemly gentle and quiet white clothed youngster. Exactly how powerful was this white clothed youngster? Qin Yu didn’t dare to determine that at all.
