After Qin Yu managed to travel some distance with his teleportation, he suddenly stopped.
At this moment, Qin Yu was not far away from Liu Yuxi. Qin Yu didn’t dare to get any closer to him because he feared that Liu Yixu might discover him. Using his Spatial Energy, Qin Yu observed the movement of the waters in the lake to determine the location of Liu Yuxi.
As Qin Yu continued to determine the locations of Liu Yuxi, he managed to create the trajectory at which Liu Yuxi was traveling in his mind.
“He’s directly going towards the center of the lake?” Qin Yu was slightly confused. “Could it be that Tan Jiu who had been hiding in the Black Dragon Pool the entire time had been hiding in the center of the lake?” Qin Yu stopped overthinking it and started to proceed toward the center of the lake.
Right after Qin Yu flew for some time in the bottom of the lake…
Qin Yu felt another movement of lake water. That movement originated from the center of the Black Dragon Pool. Furthermore, that movement of water was following a very regular pattern.
Two movements of waters. One originated from Liu Yuxi. As for the other one, it naturally had to originate from Tan Jiu!
“Back then, I searched throughout the entire Black Dragon Pool and yet was unable to find him. Truly, I do not know where he had been hiding!” Qin Yu quietly approached the center of the lake. There were numerous underwater plants at the bottom of the lake. Qin Yu was currently traveling in between some rocks and plants.
After some time, Qin Yu had arrived behind a large stone.
He spread out his Spatial Energy. Qin Yu was clearly inspecting the center of the lake a hundred meters away from him. At this moment, a tunnel actually appeared at the center of the lake. The tunnel connected all the way into the ground underneath the lake.
From the other side, Liu Yuxi also arrived at the center of the lake.
Tan Jiu walked out from that tunnel. He saw Liu Yuxi and said cold and indifferently. “As expected, you’ve come. Merely, you’ve come two years earlier than I had anticipated.”
“Although it would still take a couple more years for the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus to finish ripening, but I was afraid that there would be an error in the time. Thus, I decided to come ahead of time.” At this moment, Liu Yuxi had a smile on his face.
The scarlet haired and scarlet browed Tan Jiu humped coldly. “If you want to come in, then come in quickly.” After he said that, Tan Jiu once again returned to the underground tunnel.
The silver haired and silver browed Liu Yuxi lightly smiled. He also stepped into the underground tunnel. Right after the two of them stepped into the underground tunnel, Qin Yu also quietly followed behind them. He had spread his Spatial Energy down through the tunnel.
This underground tunnel was only several tens of meters deep. Around eighty meters underneath the bottom of the lake was an underground mansion.
At this moment, Liu Yuxi had arrived at the entrance of the underground mansion. As for Tan Jiu, he had pressed on the mechanism on the mansion. Right after that, the tunnel started to slowly close. It wasn’t the entrance of the tunnel that was closing but rather the entire tunnel was closing.
“No wonder I didn’t discover it the last time I searched.” Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
When Qin Yu searched with his Spatial Energy, he only covered an area of about a hundred meters and permeated his Spatial Energy a meter or two underneath the ground. He did not try to penetrate eighty or ninety meters with his Spatial Energy at all. If he were to continue to search, even if Qin Yu were to spend a couple more years, he would likely still not find anything.
“Eighty meters, that’s enough for me to get there through teleportation.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
In front of the Spatial Energy from the Universal World, the underground rocks were unable to hinder them at all. Perhaps even a High Level Heavenly Deity cannot get down there without a word or movement. However, Qin Yu was capable of doing it!
“There’s actually no water in the underground mansion. Mn, it’s pretty huge. That room should do.” Qin Yu selected a room in the underground mansion. With one teleportation, Qin Yu disappeared from the lake.
Eighty meters underneath the bottom of the lake. Within the underground mansion.
Qin Yu appeared within a room inside it. This side room was very close to the courtyard in the middle of the mansion. It was only several tens of meters away from it. Within this room, Qin Yu was able to clearly hear the conversation between Tan Jiu and Liu Yuxi in the middle of the courtyard.
Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu, due to the fact that they’re inside the underground mansion that they believed even High Level Heavenly Deities cannot come in without making a sound, were not attentive of their surroundings.
Qin Yu’s Spatial Energy was spread out. It covered over half of the entire courtyard. Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu were both within the area where Qin Yu’s Spatial Energy had covered. However, the two of them weren’t aware of it in the slightest.
“Liu Yuxi, the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus was something that the two of us discovered together. We shall distribute according to the method that we have determined. For the two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses, I shall have one and you shall have one!” Said Tan Jiu indifferently.
Qin Yu was slightly startled upon hearing the conversation.
“Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus?” Qin Yu remembered that he had seen the records regarding the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus before in the scrolls of the Bewitching God Temple that contained information regarding precious materials. “Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus, all seven lotus petals that it possessed could be used to concoct pills and medicines. The lotus core of the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus, through eating it, could revive those who have only a True Spirit remainding. If one were to use it to concoct pills, then its efficacy would be even greater!”
Qin Yu was surprised. That was because in the Divine Realm, magical pellets that are capable of reviving those who possessed only a True Spirit were extremely valuable.
In terms of value, it was even more precious than a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and was approaching that of a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
As for the ‘lotus core’ of the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus, it was even more precious. That was because eating it was merely part of its medicinal use. If one were to use it to concoct pills, then its effect would be much greater. This lotus core definitely valued as much as a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact or even greater.
“No wonder it would cause Tan Jiu and Liu Yuxi to care about it so much.” Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
Although the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus was precious, it would only be attractive to Qin Yu and was not something that would cause him to be emotionally excited for. That was because Qin Yu possessed the Bewitching God Temple which contained a lot of treasures.
IN the room that contained the materials and ingredients, although ingredients at the level of Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus were few, there were still several of them.
“So it’s all for merely Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus. However, they said that there are two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses? That is quite strange.” Qin Yu frowned. Qin Yu clearly remembered that the records have listed that Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses were treasures borned from absorbing the Divine Spiritual Energy of the world. Thus, each Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus would absorb the Divine Spiritual Energy in its surroundings; how would it possible coexist with another Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus?
It was just like the mountain tigers. In every region, there could only be a single tiger.
The Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses were the same. For two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses to grow together was simply an impossible matter according to Qin Yu’s logic.
“Two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses, you shall have one and I shall have one?” Liu Yuxi looked to Tan Jiu with a confused expression. “Tan Jiu, when did you turned so generous? With your temperament, wouldn’t you be more greedy than that?”
Liu Yuxi was extremely knowledgeable of Tan Jiu’s character. Tan Jiu was someone with an extreme amount of greed. Back during the time when they were in the Devil Murder Realm, he would always try to obtain as much treasure as possible.
Although the two of them said to distribute evenly back then, but as Tan Jiu had stayed here the entire time, Liu Yuxi believed that Tan Jiu would definitely want to seize more.
“I do want to get more, but would you be willing to give?” Tan Jiu coldly humped.
“Not at all.” Liu Yuxi replied.
“Well, that solved the problem then.” Tan Jiu’s expression was still cold and indifferent. “I am very certain about your strength. If the two of us were to fight, neither of us would be able to win. These Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses, it just so happened that we can each have one.”
Liu Yuxi nodded while smiling. Merely, he was looking at Tan Jiu with a gaze like he just met someone new.
“You’ve changed greatly.” Liu Yuxi said with a smile.
Tan Jiu coldly humped and said. “According to my estimation, it’ll likely take another three and half years for the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses to ripen. At that time, you can go to one of the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus whereas I’ll go to the other one.”
“Let’s go with that.” Liu Yuxi’s smile have been extremely brilliant the entire time.
After Liu Yuxi said those words, he proceed to stand up and walk toward a corner of the courtyard. Part of Qin Yu’s Spatial Energy immediately changed direction and started to stretch toward another corner. Qin Yu discovered something strange!
Qin Yu knew everything from the locations where Qin Yu’s Spatial Energy managed to come into contact because he was the creator of the Universal World.
“Mn?” What an extremely cold aura. For the surface of the pond to be this cold, it seemed like that pond water is… Unitary Heavy Water! The Unitary Heavy Water that had formed a small pond, it appeared very similar to the golden bead on top of the Refining Dark Star of the Dark Star Realm.” Qin Yu’s attention was instantly focused upon that cold pond.
Unitary Heavy Water was extremely rare. For there to be such a pond here, there are definitely treasure within this pond.
“Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses were cold attribute items. They grow on top of Unitary Heavy Water. The amount of Unitary Heavy was extremely sparse, it only required about enough to fill half a cask.” Qin Yu still remember the information regarding the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus in the golden scroll.
Ordinary casks were only the size of half a person. How much could a half cask contain?
As for this pond, its shape was round and possessed a diameter close to two meters. Such a large pond, the amount of Unitary Heavy Water in there would likely be enough to fill ten casks of Unitary Heavy Water.
On the two sides of this pond of Unitary Heavy Water grew two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses. The appearance of these Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses were exactly like what was recorded in the golden scroll. There were seven lotus petals of seven different colors. The lotus seed head was extremely small. On top of it was the core of the lotus.
“Hm?” Qin Yu was suddenly surprised.
“There was a very small hidden illusion array placed in the middle of this pond.” Through using his Divine Awareness, Qin Yu managed to discover right away that there was something in the center of this pond that was hidden by an illusion array.
TIme passed, in the blink of an eye, over three years had passed. In the past three plus years, Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu were both sitting cross-legged and have not said a single word to each other. As for Qin Yu, he too had been sitting cross-legged in the room and didn’t say a single word.
Qin Yu who had been in the state of peaceful training suddenly felt a dazzling radiance. Immediately, he opened his eyes.
The entire underground was covered by dazzling seven colored lights. Qin Yu immediately covered the pond of Unitary Heavy Water with his Spatial Energy. At this moment, two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses were radiating seven colored lights like two suns on the two sides of the pond.
Liu Yuxi and Tan Jiu instantly rushed to the side of the pond.
“Haha, it has finally finished maturing.” Liu Yuxi’s eyes were filled with delight. The Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses are only completely ripen after they started radiating seven colored lights.
Tan Jiu also displayed a smile. He said at once. “Liu Yuxi, you go take that one first, I’ll take this one.” Compared to Liu Yuxi, Tan Jiu was a lot more calm.
At this moment, Liu Yuxi was actually on guard against Tan Jiu. He was afraid that Tan Jiu would sneak attack him and try to seize both of the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses.
“Okay, I’ll go take this one.” Liu Yuxi said that and was about to pluck the lotus when…
The two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses suddenly started shining even brighter. Two amazingly dazzling lights were shot out from the two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses. The light then proceeded to gather in the center. With a visible speed, the two Seven Colored Magnificent Lotuses withered.
The two rays of eye dazzling light were gathered in the center of the pond.
The hidden illusion array had been opened. Tan Jiu’s expression took a huge change. He started muttering his unbelieving. “What, what’s happening? I thought it still hadn’t reached the date of ripening.”
“What is that?” Liu Yuxi’s gaze instantly locked on the center of the pond.
The hidden illusion array had been eliminated. What was hidden was now in clear view. It was a magnificent lotus a size smaller than the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus. Merely, it had nine lotus petals and was radiating a black light all over.
Qin Yu’s eyes were instantly opened wide like a ball. “Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus? Such a thing really exist?”
At this moment, Tan Jiu’s expression calmed down. He looked to the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus on the pond. A flash of frantic ruthlessness flashed through his eyes.
[TL: I took some translation liberty and change the lotus leaves to lotus petals. Because well, I think IET meant petals because Lotus have multiple petals and not leaves. The leaves aren’t even connected with the lotus flower…]
