The vast earth spread as far as the eye can see. However, Qin Yu was able to clearly sense the change that had occurred in this world after he ‘split the Heaven and Earth apart.’ The earth was spreading unceasingly. The area of this world was increasing endlessly.
“This earth is much greater than even a thousand Purple Mystic Stars.” Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
As he stood on this piece of land, his heart felt extremely peaceful. This world belonged to him. The entire world was his to control.
“Since splitting the Heaven and Earth apart has created a new universe, then this tenth stage of the ‘Stellar Transformation’ shall be called the… The Universe Stage!” Qin Yu had decided the name for the tenth stage in his heart.
[TL: The name for the tenth stage is 乾坤之境 which could mean the Heaven and Earth Stage or the Universe Stage. Essentially, Qin Yu created a world within the Stellar Space.]
The ‘limit of this world’ that Qin Yu had created was actually the membrane of the Stellar Space that surrounded it. This world was unceasingly absorbing the ‘flour paste energy’ from the outside world and increasing in size without end.
“Never had I expected that I would actually be able to evolve it to such a state. Even my body managed to come in.” Qin Yu was somewhat stunned.
Originally, Qin Yu was only able to bring his awareness into the Stellar Space. It was impossible for him to bring his physical body in it. Who knows what had happened in the evolution that caused him to be able to bring even his body into the Stellar Space.
“This world is too monotonous.” As Qin Yu said that, the Universal World that he had created immediately started to change.
Rivers, mountains, wetlands, oceans, lakes, deserts, trees, plants, flowers… the world that was originally monotonous was transforming with an astonishing speed. As all this was happening, Qin Yu merely smiled.
At the moment when this world was successfully created, Qin Yu already knew what sort of magical ability he possessed here.
Within his own Universal World, Qin Yu can be said to be omnipotent.
However, he could only be ‘considered’ omnipotent and not completely omnipotent. That was because this Universal World that he had created was still in a state of growth. It had not yet reached the state of perfection. At this moment, Qin Yu was only able to barely utilize the Spatial Energy from this Universal World and not the Temporal Energy.
However, this Universal World was created by Qin Yu. Even if a Godking were to show up here, although Godkings could control the Spatial Laws, if Qin Yu wished for it, then even Godkings would be unable to use the Spatial Energy of this world. That was because Qin Yu was the owner of this world.
Qin Yu exclaimed in surprise. His body instantly disappeared. He reappeared in the middle of the sky.
At the moment, this place of the Universal World, a dark and yellow colored gas was being generated. The speed at which it was generated could not be considered fast. However, it was still being generated. A half man’s size dark and yellow colored gas was floating in the middle of the air here.
[TL: Dark and Yellow → Color of the Heaven and Earth. (Xuan) Dark/Black is the color of the heaven whereas (Huang) Yellow is the color of the earth… I guess that makes sense sometimes (night and dry land)?]
As the dark and yellow colored gas was being birthed, as the owner of this world, the information regarding this dark and yellow gas naturally appeared in Qin Yu’s mind.
“Dark and Yellow Energy are born during the creation of the world. Once one merges the Dark and Yellow Energy into a weapon, that weapon’s hardness and defensive ability would reach its pinnacle.”
Qin Yu’s face immediately blossomed into a smile. “Who could’ve known that such a thing would actually appear with the creation of this Universal World. Hardness and defensive power? Good.”
Qin Yu stretched out his hand. The Divine Spear Waning Snow appeared in his hand.
In the Divine Realm, if one did not utilize Grandmist Spiritual Energy, then the strongest weapon one could create would be a ‘High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact’ that generally possessed the same power as a third-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. As for the Divine Spear Waning Snow, although it did not possess Grandmist Spiritual Energy, its might was comparable to that of a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. It was also the most prided work of the Craftsman God.
Missing Grandmist Spiritual Energy, yet still comparable to a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
How powerful would the Divine Spear Waning Snow become if it were to fuse with the Dark and Yellow Energy that was birthed from the creation of a world?
The Divine Spear Waning Snow floated out from Qin Yu’s hand. It then continued to float straight in the air like so. That lump of Dark and Yellow Energy the size of half a man completely wrapped around the Divine Spear Waning Snow.
Qin Yu was able to sense the speed at which the Dark and Yellow Energy was assimilating into the Divine Spear Waning Snow. He was unable to help himself from gasping. “What a slow assimilation speed. With such a speed, who knows when it would complete the fusion.”
“Forget about it, I don’t have any use for this Divine Spear Waning Snow at the moment anyway. I’ll just let it stay in this Universal World and slowly fuse with the Dark and Yellow Energy.”
Qin Yu was able to sense the connection between this Universal World and Jiang Lan’s Realm. He was able to sense the connection point between the two worlds. It was the place where Qin Yu had previously disappeared from. Controlling the Spatial Energy, Qin Yu directly came back to that location in Jiang Lan’s Realm.
Qin Yu understood that once the Spatial Energy of the Universal World covers a location, he would be able to instantly arrive at that place.
In the second layer space of Jiang Lan’s Realm. Outside of Qin Yu’s courtyard manor. Hei Yu, Wu Lan and them had waited here quietly for many years now. In all these years, none of them had said a single word.
They merely waited quietly…
“Big brother, you must definitely succeed.” Hei Yu had an extremely grave expression on his face. His heart was very heavy.
That was because under normal circumstances, the time it take for one to breakthrough a stage to another was extremely short. However, Qin Yu had been in his courtyard manor for many years already. Fortunately there was no change to Jiang Lan’s Realm. Thus, at the very least, it signified that Qin Yu was still alive.
A creaking sound was heard.
“The door to the room has been opened?” Hei Yu, Wu Lan, Wu He, Hong Yu, Lu Shui and Uncle Fu stood up at practically the same time. The six of them glanced at each other with pleasantly surprised expressions. After that, all six of them immediately proceeded towards Qin Yu’s courtyard manor.
Hei Yu took the lead. He was the first to open the door to the courtyard manor. Sure enough, he saw Qin Yu walking out from his room. At this moment, he had already arrived in the courtyard.
“Haha… I’ve successfully broken through.” Qin Yu saw Hei Yu’s worried gaze; he immediately smiled and said.
Hei Yu and the others immediately displayed a relaxed smile. The two girls, Lu Shui and Hong Yu, immediately started chattering. “Didn’t I say that Lord Qin Yu would definitely succeed? Isn’t it just like I said?”
“I think we should celebrate this. In these past years, I’ve been so scared that I couldn’t even breathe properly.” Said Hong Yu who was dressed in all pink as she held her chest.
“Good, let’s celebrate this.” At this moment, Qin Yu’s mood was also extremely good.
After a lively feast of drinking and eating, Qin Yu and Hei Yu talked about a lot of things. In the couple hundred years that Qin Yu had been outside, Hei Yu had been in the second layer space of the Jiang Lan’s Realm for several tens of thousands of years. The current Hei Yu was much more powerful than before. Merely, he was still at the Mid Level Deity level.
“Big brother, after your breakthrough, how much did your strength increase?” Hei Yu asked.
Upon hearing Hei Yu’s question, Qin Yu displayed a strange smile on his face.
How much did his strength increase?
Even Qin Yu himself felt strange. Back when he was at the Origin Stage, he possessed the Origin Energy. However, after reaching the Universe Stage, he became only able to at most utilize the Spatial Energy of his Universal World.
Spatial Energy, Qin Yu was uncertain as to how powerful the Spatial Energy was.
Furthermore, would the ‘Spatial Energy’ of the Universal World be rejected by the Divine Realm? After all, the Divine Realm was a completely different world from Qin Yu’s ‘Universal World.’
Other than this, there was also another unusual aspect.
A transformation had occurred in Qin Yu’s dantian. The ‘Black Hole’ that was originally in his dantian had disappeared. Qin Yu did not know when it disappeared, but he suspected that it had most likely disappeared during the period of time when he was creating the Universal World.
Other than this, a lump of White Pure Flames was surprisingly burning in his dantian.
When Qin Yu was at the ‘Origin Stage,’ his body’s True Flame was that of the ‘Black Divine Flame.’ However, when he reached the ‘Universe Stage,’ his True Flame had turned into ‘White Pure Flame.’ Merely, Qin Yu never expected for the White Pure Flame to be in his dantian.
However, Qin Yu still did not appear to be any different from other people from the outside.
Although he no longer had the connection of his dantian to his ‘Black Hole,’ after creating the ‘Universal World,’ Qin Yu’s soul had become connected with the Universal World. He was able to even teleport to the Universal World with merely a thought now.
“When compared with Jiang Lan’s Realm, it’s likely that the Universal World is even more safe.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
After all, when hiding in the Jiang Lan’s Realm, the true form of the Jiang Lan’s Realm would still remain in the original location. At the very most, it could turn itself into a speck of dust, mountain rocks or other objects. However, the Universal Space… was a true world. Once he hides himself in that, no one would be able to find Qin Yu.
“If my enemy were to be able to get into the Universal Space, then that’s even better.” Qin Yu’s face was filled with smiles.
In the Universal World, Qin Yu was unequalled.
“Big brother, what are you thinking? I was asking you how much your strength increase this time!” Hei Yu said.
Qin Yu woke back up from his thoughts. He immediately smiled and said. “This time, mn, my soul’s level has increased slightly. It’s about at the High Level Deity’s peak. I am merely a step away from reaching the Heavenly Deity level.”
“Peak?” Hei Yu’s eyes have instantly opened wide into circles.
“I have bitterly trained for over two hundred thousand years and only reached a level near the peak of the Mid Level Deity. Big brother, I believe that you haven’t trained much.” Hei Yu felt a bit dispirited. The gap between their cultivation speed was too great.
Qin Yu helplessly shook his head and said. “Before I had reached the Universe Stage, I was merely at the ordinary High Level Deity level. Perhaps when I broke through to the Universe Stage, my soul improved somewhat. However, I didn’t really feel it myself.”
However Qin Yu understood that the hardest mountain pass was breaking through the High Level Deity stage and reaching the Heavenly Deity stage. There were countless people in the Divine Realm who were trapped at the peak of the High Level Deity stage, unable to step across and enter the Heavenly Deity level.
“It appears that I will have to train even harder.” Hei Yu nodded. He then smiled to Qin Yu and said. “Big brother, I will be leaving first.”
Qin Yu stood up and saw Hei Yu off.
After Hei Yu left, Qin Yu stood on the outside of his door. He looked to the boundless Jiang Lan’s Realm. “This Jiang Lan’s Realm was originally Uncle Lan’s. Furthermore, it is Uncle Lan’s first Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Compared to Jiang Lan’s Realm, my Universal World is only unable to control the time. It is primarily because the Universal World has yet to finish maturing. Mn… when I see Uncle Lan again, I’ll return the Jiang Lan’s Realm back to him.”
