Huang Jing cast a side-eye glance at Huangfu Liushui. Ultimately, she said. “Liu Shui, if you were to get bored, then stop staying in the desolate Mount Cold Gold and return back to Mount Dazzling Gold.”
“Mn.” Huangfu Liushui nodded obediently.
However, Huang Jing knew what she had said was likely going to be useless. Otherwise, this younger brother of hers would not have left his home. With her younger brother’s rebellious nature, all she could do was to try to urge him like so. If she were to try to force him to come back, then the result would be even worse.
“Good, then I shall take my leave. Qin Yu, farewell.” Huang Jing looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu also bowed. “Miss Huang Jing, let’s meet again on Mount Dazzling Gold.” Upon hearing what Qin Yu said, Huang Jing lightly smiled. She then soared into the sky and flew toward the east.
“Huhu, she finally left!” Huangfu Liushui immediately started laughing happily.
“Brother Huangfu, no wonder you possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. So you actually possessed an older sister with a high status at Mount Dazzling Gold.” Sneered Tan Jiu. Within Tan Jiu’s words contained jealousy and envy.
High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, even if it was the Mount Dazzling Gold, it was likely that only those with high status would be able to obtain those.
As for Tan Jiu, he had only managed to luckily obtain a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact after paying a huge price. As for Man Chou, Man Fan and Man Fei, although all three of them were Mid Level Heavenly Deities, they were only able to barely possess a Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact each.
As bandits, it was no simple task for them to obtain a Heavenly Divine Artifact. For those three Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts, Man Chou and his brothers had spent an unmeasurable amount of mental and physical effort to obtain them. In the Divine Realm… the majority of the Low Level Heavenly Deities did not possess a Heavenly Divine Artifact. That was because the Heavenly Divine Artifacts were truly too precious.
This was also the reason why Mei Ji and Daoist Liu Xu were envious of Xiong Hei. Xiong Hei’s Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact ‘Mountain Crusher’ was originally the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu’s weapon. After obtaining his Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, Tan Jiu bestowed his old weapon to Xiong Hei. However, that Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact had been destroyed by Qin Yu.
“What? Are you envious?” Huangfu Liushui flipped his hand and took out an… enormous hatchet!
That enormous hatchet was golden colored throughout. Right after Liushui took out this enormous golden hatchet, Qin Yu instantly sensed the frightening aura contained within it. If the Divine Sword Scarlet Blood were to possess a sharp aura, then this enormous hatchet possessed an incomparably thick and imposing aura.
Huangfu Liushui gently caressed the enormous hatchet in his hand. He was caressing it so affectionately like how one would caress one’s lover. “Tan Jiu, if you’re envious, then just say it out clearly. This High Quality Divine Artifact of mine, I had spent quite some effort in order to obtain it. With your status, you can only obtain a Heavenly Divine Artifact if you managed to reach the High Level Heavenly Deity level and then submit yourself to a certain power where the power would be able to grant a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. Otherwise, with your current strength, you can only obtain a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact within your dreams.”
Tan Jiu coldly humped and then glanced at Qin Yu beside him.
Tan Jiu cursed in his heart. “Huangfu Liushui, if it wasn’t for your sister, then I would’ve likely have obtained a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact by now. Furthermore, I might’ve even be able to learn the remarkable ability of ‘so close yet worlds apart.’”
“What’s there to envy you for? It’s not like you’re the only one here with a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact!” Tan Jiu raised his scarlet brows and said coldly.
“Who else is there?” Huangfu Liushui’s eyes shined.
Man Chou, Man Fan and Man Fei also looked to Tan Jiu with shocked expressions. Man Fei said. “There’s someone with a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact? Black Dragon, you’d best not sprout random lies around. High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts are no ordinary playthings.”
Qin Yu frowned.
Sure enough, that Tan Jiu looked at Qin Yu. He pointed at Qin Yu and said. “Brother Qin Yu possesses a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. It was bestowed to Brother Qin Yu by his master and was extremely powerful.”
Qin Yu felt extremely enraged in his heart.
Tan Jiu said to Qin Yu apologetically. “Ah, Qin Yu, I am unable to keep secrets. Earlier when I saw how excessively arrogant Huangfu Liushui was, I felt grievance for you and was unable to refrain my mouth from opening and speaking in your behalf.”
“Felt grievance for me?” At this moment, Qin Yu truly did not know whether he should curse at how excessively shameless Tan Jiu was.
Huangfu Liushui’s eyes started shining. He looked to Qin Yu and said. “Qin Yu, you have a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact? When I used my Divine Awareness to inspect you, your body merely possessed the Divine Energy of a High Level Deity. If you possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, how would this nine headed bug not try to forcible take it from you?”
Huangfu Liushui gaze Tan Jiu a side eye. “I am quite familiar with the temperament of this nine headed bug. He would definitely be unable to resist himself from trying to take your High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.”
“I have just reached the Low Level Heavenly Deity level. The Divine Energy within my body still hasn’t managed to transform to that of Heavenly Divine Energy yet.” Qin Yu immediately explained. This was the only sort of explanation he could provide.
Deities and Heavenly Deities, their souls were unlike that of the souls of Immortals and Mortals. When one’s soul had reached a specific level, a Deity’s soul would form a Golden Soul Pellet. As for the Heavenly Deities, their souls would turn into an Embryo.
Both the souls of Deities and Heavenly Deities were actual entities. They were hidden within the depths of the brain and cannot be investigated by others at all.
However, it was easy for one to determine the Divine Energy and Heavenly Divine Energy that Deities and Heavenly Deities possessed. Those who are more powerful are capable of using their Divine Awareness to hinder others from investigating them. As for those that are weak, they can only allow themselves to be investigated by those stronger than them.
“Oh, so that was the case.” Huangfu Liushui suddenly understood now. However, he shortly said in a puzzled tone. “However you’re only a Low Level Heavenly Deity, how is it that you can stop that nine headed bug with merely a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact? Although I don’t really like that nine headed bug, but to be honest, this nine headed bug’s battle prowess is extremely astonishing.”
Tan Jiu coldly humped.
“It is your older sister that saved me.” Qin Yu explained.
Huangfu Liushui immediately understood it now. He laughed out loud. “That’s right, with my older sister helping you, if this nine headed bug actually dared to attack you, he’ll merely be courting death. Oh, that’s right, do you really possess a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact?”
Qin Yu admitted that he possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. He extended his hand and then the Divine Sword Scarlet Blood appeared within his hand. “This Divine Sword is called ‘Scarlet Blood.’ It is a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. It is bestowed to me by my master.”
In Qin Yu’s heart, the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan did indeed provide him the grace of guidance like that of a master. Everything in the Bewitching God Temple was left behind to him by Chehou Yuan. To say that they were bestowed by his master was also correct.
“Master, what might your master’s name be?” Huangfu Liushui asked. “Perhaps I know who he is.”
“My master has ordered me that I cannot tell his names to others. I am deeply sorry about that.” Qin Yu said somewhat regretfully.
Actually, Chehou Yuan had also left a message to Qin Yu telling him to not let others know about him becoming the successor of the Bewitching God Temple. Otherwise, merely the identity of the ‘successor to the Craftsman God’ would bring about the attention of many people.
Huangfu Liushui nodded. He was also someone who had seen the greater world. He was not someone who would bother to have wicked intentions merely for a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
“Nine headed bug and you three dumb oxens, my sister has already left. There is no one else here either. Let’s have a great battle over here.” Huangfu Liushui held the enormous golden hatchet and started to wave it around unceasingly.
Man Chou, Man Fan and Man Fei glanced at each other.
The second brother Man Fan nodded and said with a hump. “That’s good too. Today, we three brothers wanted to fight against the Black Dragon anyways. Merely, our moods were wrecked by your older sister. Now that your older sister has left, it would be fine for us to have a battle.”
“That’s right. Fuck. I’m currently full of anger and have nowhere to vent them.” Man Fei added.
“Vent anger? You’re planning to vent your anger on me? I too am full of anger!” Tan Jiu’s expression turned even more gloomy. Today had been a bad day for him all day. He had just lost a Low Level Heavenly Deity subordinate earlier. Then, when he was about to kill Qin Yu, he was disturbed by Huang Jing. And now, he must worry about the retaliation from Qin Yu’s master.
How could he not be angry?
The three Man brothers stood at one side. Each of the three brothers held a long three pronged fork. These three long three pronged forks were all Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts. All of them were dark red in color and extremely heavy.
Huangfu Liushui held his enormous golden hatchet in his hand and smiled as he stood at once side.
The three Man brothers and Huangfu Liushui were all looking at the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu. At this moment, Tan Jiu had already turned into nine Tan Jiu’s.
Qin Yu was watching the battle from afar. The three Man brothers, Huangfu Liushui and Tan Jiu, they were all Mid Level Heavenly Deities. Although they were all Mid Level Heavenly Deities, there was disparity between their strength.
“I’ll go first!”
Huangfu Liushui laughed loudly. At the same time, he threw his enormous golden hatchet high up the sky. That golden hatchet suddenly became even larger and grew to the size of a large mountain.
As for Huangfu Liushui, his body was radiating a misty golden light. His body instantly charged sharply toward a Tan Jiu. His metal-like fist was directly smashed toward Tan Jiu’s head.
Tan Jiu and Huangfu Liushui started fighting at a lightning speed. Their after images were appearing unceasingly. The sounds of explosions were being heard nonstop.
The blade of the enormous golden hatchet instantly became about ten miles long. However, the blade was still as thin and sharp as it was before!
Exactly how large was a ten miles long blade? The speed that this enormous golden hatchet chopped down was extremely fast. In an instant, it had chopped down upon another Tan Jiu. That Tan Jiu held a black stick and could only firmly take on the incoming hatchet.
“Bang!” A sound like an earthquake. Qin Yu felt that even the ground was shaking.
A gigantic crack appeared on the surface. As for that Tan Jiu that was hacked by the enormous golden hatchet, he had been hacked deeply into the ditch. After some time, a blur flew out from the deep ditch. It was precisely that Tan Jiu clone that had been hacked into the ditch.
At this moment, this clone’s complexion was already pale. He was already seriously injured.
“You only know how to rely on your High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact!” That Tan Jiu clone’s scarlet brows were raised as he shouted angrily. “Huangfu Liushui, even though you possess a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, you still would only be trampled upon by me!”
At this instant, six of the nine Tan Jiu clones had rushed toward Huangfu Liushui. As for the remaining three clones, they were taking on one of the Man brothers each.
Tan Jiu, the three Man brothers and Huangfu Liushui were all Mid Level Heavenly Deities. All three of them are capable of creating ‘Spatial Domains.’ Perhaps it was because they knew each other very well and knew that if they were to use ‘Spatial Domains,’ they would only be wasting their energy. Thus, none of them had used their Spatial Domains.
Six against one!
Holding his enormous golden hatchet in his hand, Huangfu Luishui’s entire body turned golden in color. His fists, legs, knees, elbows… each and every one of his body parts was able to execute an extremely frantic attack. As for the enormous golden hatchet in his hand, it was striking with a lightning speed.
“What a valiant body.” Qin Yu gasped in admiration.
He clearly saw that Huangfu Luishui managed to shatter one of Tan Jiu clone’s High Quality Divine Armor with a single fist strike. Qin Yu knew very well that… when a Mid Level Heavenly Deity used a Divine Artifact, the defense of the Divine Artifact would be astonishingly strong. Yet Huangfu Liushui still managed to shatter the High Quality Divine Armor.
“Six clones against one. Yet this Huangfu Liushui is actually able to keep up with them. This Huangfu Liushui’s speed is truly astonishing. And that enormous hatchet of his, those clones simply don’t dare to take it head on at all.” Qin Yu was able to clearly see that although Huangfu Liushui was fighting six Tan Jiu clones by himself, he was however dominating.
Qin Yu turned around to look at the other battlefield.
Three clones against the three Man brothers.
“A clone against a single person. It seems that the three Man brothers hold the superiority by a slight margin. Mn… that’s true too. Tan Jiu’s clones all hold a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact. Although they were merely a portion of a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, they still possess an extremely powerful amount of might. On the other hand, the three Man brothers only possess Low Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts!”
The three Man brothers were roaring and frantically attacking. The three Tan Jiu’s were also trying their hardest to block the incoming attacks.
This battle continued for an entire day. Ultimately, Tan Jiu seemed to be unable to bear it anymore. After all, for him to take on four people by himself was indeed an extremely difficult thing to do. This held especially true for Huangfu Liushui.
Tan Jiu knew that even if he was to fight against Huangfu Liushui one against one, he would only be able to win by a slight margin. Yet now, he had only sent six clones to fight against Huangfu Liushui. Thus, he had no other choice but to be trampled upon.
Tan Jiu suddenly roared angrily. The nine clones started to gather toward the center with a lightning speed. After that, the nine Tan Jiu’s fused into one. At the same time, the nine black sticks had turned into a single nine sectioned whip.
Tan Jiu was able to clearly sense the increase in thickness and strength of the power within his body.
“Huangfu Liushui and you three, if you have the ability, come at me again!” Tan Jiu held his nine sectioned whip in his hand and shouted angrily.
“Haha… you’ve finally decided to go all out. Delightful, delightful!” Huangfu Liushui laughed out loud and then charged toward Tan Jiu. As for the three Man brothers, they roared and then also charged over.
Four against one!
Qin Yu finally managed to experience the true strength of this Tan Jiu. After his nine clones combined into one, Tan Jiu’s speed and power were both increased greatly. Especially that nine sectioned whip that he held in his hand.
The nine sectioned whip was both flexible and firm. It could attack from around and turn into a stick to attack with a smash. It could also be both flexible for half of the whip and firm for the other half!
The nine sectioned staff could even increase in length to bind his enemies. Furthermore, it could even split apart into different sections to attack Tan Jiu’s enemy. In Tan Jiu’s hands, Qin Yu felt that he was dazzled by the nine sectioned whip.
Perhaps Huangfu Liushui and the three Man brothers were not good at cooperating with each other. Although they were fighting Tan Jiu four against one, they were only able to slightly possess the upper hand and unable to defeat Tan Jiu at all.
“His energy is completely condensed into his weapon. The attack power is completely condensed. Each leg, each fist, all their attack power are extremely astonishing. Although it does not have a gorgeous appearance, its might is enormous.” More than half of Qin Yu’s concentration was focused on Huangfu Liushui.
After a battle of three days and three nights, Huangfu Liushui and them had no option but to admit that even if they were to battle for several hundred more years, it would still be impossible for them to win. Thus, they ended up giving up.
“Ha, delightful, delightful.” Huangfu Liushui smiled as he walked to Qin Yu’s side. “Qin Yu, what do you think about coming to have some fun at my Mount Cold Gold?”
Qin Yu however had his own plan. He immediately said. “I still have something to do. How about I go when I have time?”
“That’s good too.” Huangfu Liushui nodded. He then secretly said to Qin Yu via his Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “Qin Yu, let me remind you. You’d best go to the Mount Dazzling Gold quickly and try your best to chase after my older sister. Perhaps you might become my older brother-in-law. Truly, I think that my older sister has a pretty good impression of you. You’re quite hopeful!”
Qin Yu was startled.
Seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Huangfu Liushui immediately started laughing out loud. As he was laughing, Huangfu Liushui flew away.
