With a slight intention of his mind, the location of where Uncle Fu was appeared before Qin Yu’s mind.
At this moment, several miles away from Qin Yu’s courtyard manor, beside two pavilion buildings, one green and one red, Uncle Fu was smiling and chatting with Hong Yu and Lu Shui. Seeing Uncle Fu smiling wholeheartedly, it was evident that he was in a very cheerful mood.
With a step, Qin Yu’s figure disappeared from the courtyard manor. When he reappeared, he had already arrived beside the three.
“Master.” Upon seeing Qin Yu, Uncle Fu immediately greeted him with a bow.
The two girls, Hong Yu and Lu Shui, were beaming with smiles. They bowed and said with crisp voices. “Lord Qin Yu.” The two girls, Hong Yu and Lu Shui, already knew about Qin Yu’s strength. In the Divine Realm that possessed as many experts as the clouds in the sky, the two of them were extremely excited to follow such an expert like Qin Yu.
Qin Yu discovered that Hong Yu and Lu Shui were actually also level nine Demon Emperors.
“Hong Yu, Lu Shui, have the two of you managed to sense your Divine Tribulation?” Qin Yu asked.
With a scarlet red face, Hong Yu said in succession. “Lord QIn Yu, Lu Shui and I have already reached level nine Demon Emperor level a long time ago. Although neither of us have sensed our Divine Tribulation yet, according to the time the others from our Fish Clan have stayed in the level nine Demon Emperor level, we estimate that our Divine Tribulation would be coming soon.”
Lu Shui opened her bright and intelligent eyes wide and said while looking at Qin Yu. “Lord Qin Yu, I have a matter that I wish to request Lord Qin Yu’s help. May I know if it’s possible for you to help me?”
“Go ahead.” Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
Qin Yu wanted to know what exactly these two girls wanted to ask him.
“Hehe… us two sisters, back when we were still in that pond, we were bullied by the other male fish all the time. It was mainly because us sisters were the sort of fish that possessed extremely weak fighting power. Lord Qin Yu, is it possible for you to also bring them in here… so that we can properly teach them a lesson?!” Lu Shui’s eyes were radiating with excitement.
Hong Yu also looked to Qin Yu with hope and expectation.
“Male?” Qin Yu was surprised.
How did he catch them so accurately? There were numerous fish in the pond. Back then, Qin Yu merely casually captured two fish Who would’ve expected that they would be the only females among those fishes and that all the rest of them are males.
“Sure, leave this matter to me.” Qin Yu didn’t mind about doing it. “May I ask how the two of you plan to punish them? If the hatred wasn’t great, then a small punishment should do.”
Hong Yu bulged her chest and said confidently. “Lord Qin Yu, you can rest assured. We would definitely not take their lives… humph humph.” After she said those words, her nose frowned and she humphed twice.
Qin Yu shook his head and smiled.
Ever since Hong Yu and Lu Shui, these two girls, came to Jiang Lan’s Realm, it was unknown if it was because there were scarcely any females in Jiang Lan’s Realm, but Wu Lan and Wu He, the two ruler level demon beasts of the Divine Realm, were extremely good to the two girls. Qin Yu believed that once he got those other fish into Jiang Lan’s Realm, Wu Lan and them would definitely help them out in teaching them a lesson.
“Hong Yu, Lu Shui, the two of you can return and rest first. Uncle Fu and I will be leaving Jiang Lan’s Realm.” Qin Yu said with a light smile.
“Yes, Lord Qin Yu.”
Lu Shui and Hong Yu bowed respectfully. After that, the two of them returned back to their own pavilion buildings.
Uncle Fu was smiling with his eyes narrowed. “Master, these two girls, Hong Yu and Lu Shui, are extremely lively. In these past days, I’ve seen that even Young Master Hei Yu frequently displays a smile on his face.”
“Mn, the number of people in Jiang Lan’s Realm is too small. Hong Yu and Lu Shui possess very lively temperaments, they indeed brought a better mood to everyone here. Seeing their lively and quirky appearance, even my mood has become a lot more relaxed.” Qin Yu looked to Uncle Fu. “Uncle Fu, let’s go out. I have still yet to finish experimenting with my formation arrays.”
“Yes, master.” Uncle Fu nodded respectfully.
Just like that, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu disappeared from Jiang Lan’s Realm.
The current Mount Bewitch You was incomparably desolate. It had been burned to the ground by the Extremely Silent Heavenly Flames. The entire mountain had turned barren. The rocks and stones that were burned by the flames had decayed to a grayish black color. A lot of the stones and rocks were also cracked by the burning.
All the trees had turned to ashes. Those large craters on the mountain were completely visible.
On top of this bare and desolate Mount Bewitch You, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu suddenly appeared. Qin Yu and Uncle Fu looked to their surroundings. Both of them displayed a disbelieving and shocked expression.
“Master, here…” Uncle Fu’s brows were completely creased.
Qin Yu looked at the extremely desolate Mount Bewitch You before him. The former enchanting sceneries of this mountain appeared before his mind. The rumbling waterfall, the clear pond water and the animals running around the mountain forest.
“This is Mount Bewitch You?” Qin Yu looked at some of the stones that had been split apart by the burning. He suddenly turned his gaze towards his house that was on Mount Bewitch You.
Like a sharp arrow, Qin Yu flew towards the location of his previous house. As for Uncle Fu, he was like a wind elegantly drifting through Mount Bewitch You. Easily, the two of them arrived by the location where Qin Yu’s house used to be.
“This was the pond that Hong Yu and Lu Shui used to be in.” Qin Yu looked to that large pit. The form of the pond was still present, however the pond water, as well as those fish, were gone.
Qin Yu felt a burst of anger.
Ever since he started experimenting with the formation arrays, Qin Yu did not have the intention to kill those from the Black Dragon Pool. For the majority of the time, he had spared them when he could spare them. For example, those that had originally been trapped in his Trapping Array were all able to leave with their lives intact.
Even that Heavenly Deity Xiong Hei, Qin Yu also did not kill him.
When he said that he wanted him to kowtow, that was merely a joke. However, Xiong Hei ended up really kowtowing to him. Qin Yu didn’t mind about that either. To the current him, that was merely a game.
If he truly wanted to kill Xiong Hei?
If he wanted, he would’ve been able to easily kill Xiong Hei just by utilizing his Divine Spear Waning Snow. After all, Qin Yu’s ability to control space was equivalent to that of Xiong Hei’s. Yet, with the Divine Spear Waning Snow, his attack power would greatly surpass Xiong Hei’s!
“Master, Hong Yu and Lu Shui, those two girls asked you to…” At this point, Uncle Fu stopped talking.
Qin Yu also frowned. It was likely that Hong Yu and Lu Shui still didn’t know that the fish that used to fool around with them and bully them, had already been burned to nothingness and their souls scattered.
“Master, there is no need for you to be compassionate and merciful in the Divine Realm. You spared their lives yet they came and burned down your entire Mount Bewitch You. What you should do now is to demonstrate your might.” Said Uncle Fu beside Qin Yu in a light voice.
Uncle Fu understood in his heart that this master of his, although he cannot be considered as being extremely compassionate and merciful, he was still not quite fierce enough.
Had it been the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan, he would’ve long since killed those that dared act disrespectful towards him, without a care of other things. This was something that those who had reached the higher level of cultivation all understood… the law of the heavens was merciless, to kill and not to kill; one’s nature, whether treacherous or kindhearted, did not matter when comprehending the laws of the heavens.
All the roads were interlinked.
Among the Three Great Ascenders Powers of the Divine Realm, the Asura Sea and the Mount Blood Demon were both famous for their slaughter. Actually, slaughtering others was a method that allowed one to increase one’s strength even easier. It was a way that allowed one to reach the Great Dao easier.
“Master, although we still cannot determine which one of the Eight Great Families Jiang Li is from, but master, if you wish to obtain the acknowledgement from the Eight Great Families, you must possess sufficient strength and status. As for now, what you should do is to create fame for yourself through might.” Advised Uncle Fu.
The Divine Realm was a place where the strong ruled. No one in the Divine Realm would have pity upon a compassionate and merciful person. A person could only rely on himself. Likewise, one’s status could only be won over by oneself. One’s honor could only be defended by oneself.
“Uncle Fu, let’s go. We’ll be going to the Black Dragon Pool!”
Said Qin Yu coldly. He turned around and looked to the north. The Black Dragon Pool was located several thousand miles to the north. This time around… Qin Yu had finally decided. The current him still did not have the qualifications to receive the acknowledgement from the Eight Great Families. However, a mere Black Dragon Pool actually dared to look down upon him?
“Don’t force me to use Waning Snow.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
The Divine Spear Waning Snow possessed strength of a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure to begin with. And now, it had started absorbing the Dark and Yellow Energy. Although it had merely absorbed a very small portion, Qin Yu was still able to clearly sense the increase in power that the Divine Spear Waning Snow had.
“Yes, master!” Uncle Fu immediately displayed an excited expression.
Uncle Fu felt as if he had returned back to the days when he was together with Chehou Yuan where they would move about unhindered in the Divine Realm and no one would dare to be disrespectful to them.
Qin Yu and Uncle Fu left the Mount Bewitch You one following the other. As they were leaving the Mount Bewitch You, Qin Yu saw the shattered ‘Mount Bewitch You’ stele.
Qin Yu was flying a foot above the ground. As for Uncle Fu, he was gracefully drifting. If one were to compare speed, much less Qin Yu, even a High Level Heavenly Deity would be inferior to Uncle Fu.
The two of them were relatively fast. In merely two hours, they had arrived at the main area of the Black Dragon Pool.
“This Black Dragon Pool also possesses quite an enchanting scenery.” Qin Yu raised his head and looked to the unending mountain range before him. He was unable to refrain from smiling lightly. When they were flying over, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu have already discovered numerous troops of the Black Dragon Pool. Merely, because the two of them were flying so fast, they were easily able to pass through without alarming those troops and arrive outside of the Black Dragon Pool.
Uncle Fu pointed to the mountain range ahead and said. “Master, the Black Dragon Pool is located in the ravine within those highest mountains. Inside the ravine is a large lake. That lake is called the Black Dragon Pool. To the side of the Black Dragon Pool are four palaces. The one in the middle is called the Black Dragon Palace. As for the other three, they are the palaces of the other three Low Level Heavenly Deitieis.”
“There is no need to bother with the small fries. We shall proceed directly towards those four palaces.” After Qin Yu finished saying that, his speed reached its peak. Like a rapid specter, he followed the mountain range and entered the ravine. As for Uncle Fu, he was effortlessly following behind Qin Yu.
Flying in the mountain range, without alarming anyone, Qin Yu and Uncle Fu had arrived outside of the ravine.
Standing on a mountain top outside of the ravine.
Qin Yu was able to see the ravine located between the couple mountains with a single glance. This ravine was enormous. It possessed the circumference of a hundred or two hundred miles. The Black Dragon Pool had occupied more than half of the entire ravine. Such a large ravine was truly something that was rarely seen.
“Uncle Fu, from today on, in front of others, I shall pretend to be an expert who is extremely proficient in utilizing flames. My body’s True Flame has already reached the White Pure Flame level. Using flames… should be sufficient.” Said Qin Yu with a smile on his face.
Having reached the Universe Stage, the True Flame within Qin Yu’s body had turned into White Pure Flame. This had caused Qin Yu’s strength when using his Grandmist Spiritual Treasure ‘Refining Flame Wristband’ to be even stronger. The power that the Refining Flame Wristband displayed was determined firstly by the degree of its refinement and secondly by the level of one’s True Flames.
Uncle Fu nodded in approval. “Master, you are now capable of covering the entire heaven and earth with Black Divine Flames. Even the White Pure Flames, I reckon you’re capable of creating several tens of meters of White Pure Flames. Furthermore, you are now capable of emitting a small amount of ‘Void Flames.’ Back then, when my old master utilized flames, he too had only reached this level.”
Chehou Yuan was a High Level Heavenly Deity. His body’s True Flame was also White Pure Flame. Even though he possessed the Refining Flame Wristband, he was only capable of emitting a small amount of ‘Void Flames.’ However, even though it was only a small amount, it was sufficient enough to create artifacts with.
Flames: Black Divine Flame, White Pure Flame, Void Flame.
The Void Flame was the True Flame of Godking level experts. The Refining Flame Wristband that was created through using nine Purple Origin Flame Beads, was sufficient enough to allow a Heavenly Deity level expert to emit a very small amount ‘Void Flames.’
“Hey, who are you? How come I have never seen you before?” Suddenly, a man in the ravine saw Qin Yu who stood above the ravine. He immediately shouted at Qin Yu.
Qin Yu lightly smiled. Like a great Peng spreading its wings, Qin Yu flew past the sky above the ravine and arrived outside the four palaces. With an illusion-like speed, Qin Yu was executing numerous hand seals with his hands. A countless amount of black colored light started to drift above the four palaces.
In an instant, all the troops of the Black Dragon Pool within the ravine became noisy. Countless Deities started gathering here from all directions.
“Heavenly Deity, it’s a Heavenly Deity. My wife, quickly, hide ourselves. We cannot interfere in a battle between Heavenly Deities.” A youth pulled a woman beside him and started fleeing far away.
“I have never seen this Heavenly Deity before. He’s not a Heavenly Deity from Mount Cold Gold nor is he a Heavenly Deity from the Mount Three Forks. When did our Black Dragon Pool make a new enemy?” Said a bald headed old man in confusion.
“That person seems to be the Heavenly Deity from Mount Bewitch You.” Said a youth that had gone to Mount Bewitch You with the army close to ten thousand people last time around.
The three bandit groups outside of Yuchi City were respectively the Black Dragon Pool, Mount Cold Gold and Mount Three Forks. These three powers would frequently battle each other.
Amidst the noise, the three Heavenly Deities of the Black Dragon Pool… Xiong Hei, Mei Ji and Daoist Liu Xu had all rushed out from their respective palaces. Once they saw that Qin Yu was in the sky, Mei Ji and Daoist Liu Xu’s expression changed. As for Xiong Hei, he had instantly exposed anger on his face.
“Qin Yu, you actually dared to run over to our Black Dragon Pool. You truly have balls!” Xiong Hei extended his arm and the enormous spiked club appeared in his hand.
Qin Yu had also finished arranging his hand seals. Suddenly, a black cover lay over the area, concealing the sky. The cover was enormous. It covered all four palaces. Suddenly, an unfathomable amount of black flames started appearing from the black cover…
“A simple Trapping Array supplemented by the attack of Divine Flames.” Said Qin Yu with a light smile. “Xiong Hei, you people have burned down my Mount Bewitch You. Today… I shall burn down your Black Dragon Pool!”
