Volume 15 – Splitting the Heaven and Earth Apart – Chapter 38 – Divine Spear Waning Snow

Three clones had self detonated. On top of that, two clones had self detonated earlier. Tan Jiu had already self detonated five clones. Now, all he had remaining were four clones. These four ‘Tan Jiu’s’ were all watching attentively at the location of the explosion with bright expressionful eyes.
At the same time, they covered the entire courtyard with their Spatial Domain.
In an instant, all those rolling or falling crushed rocks, stones and whatnot all stopped moving. The entire courtyard had turned into an immobile state. Tan Jiu’s four clones frowned for a short moment and then slowly displayed smiles on their faces.
“Liu Yuxi, you’ve finally died!”
First Tan Jiu seriously injured Liu Yuxi with his sneak attack. He then self detonated five of his clones. Only through these methods did he managed to kill Liu Yuxi who possessed astonishing defense. At the moment when Liu Yuxi was killed, Tan Jiu felt sort of worry-free, sad, and all sorts of other kinds of complicated sensations.
The four clones instantly fused into one.
Tan Jiu walked to the location where Liu Yuxi self detonated. At this moment, a damaged battle armor, a Storage Divine Artifact as well as a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Gloves remained on the ground.
These were the remnants of Liu Yuxi. Only through discovering these remnants as well as the fact that Liu Yuxi had already ignored his Nascent Soul earlier did Tan Jiu become certain that Liu Yuxi had died. When one ignited one’s soul, even if others were to not attack, one would still likely only survive for a couple breaths time.
Qin Yu’s Universal World’s Spatial Energy had been locked on Tan Jiu the entire time.
“I must kill him with a single strike. This Tan Jiu has yet to let go of his guard. This is not the best opportunity to kill him. I’ll wait till the moment when he plucks the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, that will be the best moment to launch my sneak attack on him.”
Qin Yu slightly arched his back. His attention had been condensed to the max. He was able to execute his strongest strike at any moment!
Tan Jiu picked up the remnants of Liu Yuxi. He felt a burst of carefreeness. After killing Liu Yuxi, not only did he manage to obtain a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and all his treasures, at the same time… the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was completely his now.
Tan Jiu walked over to the pond where the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was.
The intense battle from earlier did not spread to the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus at all. The Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was still radiating a black light. Especially that sparking and translucent black lotus core, it was extremely alluring.
Tan Jiu stepped into the pond. Although this Unitary Heavy Water was powerful, it was not powerful enough to kill a Heavenly Deity.
“This Unitary Heavy Water is truly cold!” Tan Jiu was shivering.
He then thrust his hands into the bottom of the pond. Tan Jiu needed to pull out the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus from the bottom of the pond. He didn’t dare to nor did he want to pull the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus by its lotus flower.
At this moment, Tan Jiu’s attention was completely concentrated on the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus.
“This is the moment!”
A long spear suddenly appeared in Qin Yu’s hand. The Divine Spear Waning Snow that was completely black before now possessed some dark yellow color in both its shaft and tip. The amount of dark yellow was extremely tiny. It was like some small specks on the spear.
Divine Spear Waning Snow. The Divine Spear Waning Snow that had absorbed a miniscule amount of Dark and Yellow Energy!
Behind Tan Jiu who have his back bent and hands inside the pond of Unitary Heavy Water suddenly appeared Qin Yu. Qin Yu’s Divine Spear Waning Snow flashed. Like piercing through leather, it pierced through Tan Jiu’s head.
The two great auxiliary functions of the Divine Spear Waning Snow: Body Break and Devouring Soul!
Tan Jiu’s skull instantly turned to fine dust. As for Tan Jiu’s body, it turned into seven or eight fragments. However, those seven or eight fragments actually instantly turned into three Tan Jiu’s.
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his shock. “How is he still alive? His head has turned into fine dust already. The soul within his head has also been shattered already. How is it that he still has three clones?”
Qin Yu was shocked. However, Tan Jiu was even more shocked.
Tan Jiu had never thought that he would actually have his head smashed to nothingness without even noticing it.
“It’s the so close yet worlds apart! It’s Qin Yu!” Tan Jiu instantly understood what had happened. “Fortunately I would always put my nine soul sections into different parts of my body when I am not in battle.”
Tan Jiu was extremely crafty. His soul was in nine sections. Usually, he would only place a single soul section in his head. As for the other eight soul sections, he would place them in different places like his chest, dantian, arms and so on…
This was the method that Tan Jiu used in order to prevent himself from being killed by a sneak attack. This time around, this method of his saved his life. Qin Yu only managed to destroy one of the soul sections as well as the ‘Jade Blood Golden Pellet’ of that soul. (When Divine Energy transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, it would create a jade green colored golden pellet. This golden pellet is called the Jade Blood Golden Pellet. The Jade Blood Golden Pellet is the source of Heavenly Divine Energy.)
The Nascent Soul was the core of the soul whereas the Jade Blood Golden Pellet was the source of the Heavenly Divine Energy.
The heads of Heavenly Deities would usually contain a Nascent Soul and a Jade Blood Golden Pellet.
Qin Yu glanced at the three clones. These three clones were all holding a three-sectioned staff. These three sectioned staffs was the nine sectioned whip divided into three parts. Even Qin Yu must admit that this nine sectioned whip was created extremely skillfully.
“QIn Yu, you actually dared to sneak attack me and destroy a clone of mine. However, you would no longer have another opportunity now. Last time I did not kill you, this time…” Sneered a Tan Jiu clone.
Even now, Tan Jiu was still extremely confident in killing Qin Yu.
In Tan Jiu’s mind, Qin Yu was merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity. He was merely someone who relied on his remarkable ability of ‘so close yet worlds apart.’ Tan Jiu believed that if he were to go all out, then Qin Yu is certain to die.
“These three clones, I must kill them all. I cannot allow a single one to escape.” Qin Yu was thinking extremely fast.
“Mn, you’re not using that Heavenly Divine Sword?” Said the Tan Jiu to Qin Yu’s left with a frown on his face. And at this moment…
Qin Yu’s figure suddenly appeared beside the Tan Jiu to his right.
With a movement of his right arm, the Divine Spear Waning Snow in Qin Yu’s hand started to twist as it was thrust forward. Wherever the Divine Spear Waning Snow passed, spatial cracks of the thickness of hairs appeared in the Divine Realm.
The Tan Jiu to the right confidently used the three sectioned staff in his hand to block the spear strike. Tan Jiu believed that he was able to block Qin Yu’s High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact using a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
Tan Jiu’s expression suddenly changed. The three sectioned staff started to vibrate and then cracked apart. As for that spear, it pierced through Tan Jiu’s neck while he was in a state of shock.
Qin Yu shouted angrily.
Tan Jiu felt a burst of exotic energy. Following along the wound in his neck, it spread all over his body. After that, both his head and his chest turned into fine dust! That Nascent Soul and the Jade Blood Golden Pellet had also turned into fine dust.
The other two Tan Jiu’s’ expressions instantly grew pale. At the same time, their eyes were open wide like balls.
The first reaction of these two Tan Jiu’s were… to escape!
The two Tan Jiu’s, one proceeded to flee toward the entrance of the tunnel whereas the other proceeded to run toward the opposite direction, the direction toward the inside of the underground mansion.
“What sort of weapon is that? It’s not a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact; is it something that’s even more powerful than a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact?” Tan Jiu felt that his heart was shivering. Could it be a legendary Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?
Tan Jiu was filled with fear and shock.
Ordinary Deities did not know about the great name of Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, Tan Jiu, a Mid Level Heavenly Deity, had heard about rumors of it before. Merely, he had never seen one before. Or rather… he wouldn’t know even if he had seen one.
“Trying to flee?”
Seeing the two Tan Jiu’s fleeing in opposite directions, Qin Yu instantly made his decision to first kill the Tan Jiu that was fleeing toward the tunnel entrance.
Qin Yu believed that it would require the Tan Jiu who fled toward the underground mansion to create a tunnel in order to run away. This amount of time was sufficient for him to kill the other Tan Jiu.
After two continuous teleportations, Qin Yu arrived inside the tunnel and stopped the path of Tan Jiu.
“Hooh!” The first reaction Tan Jiu had when he saw Qin Yu was spreading out his Spatial Domain and then smash his weapon toward Qin Yu.
While rotating rapidly, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was thrust forward. Like a dragon flying out from the sea, with bits of dark black color to the tip of the spear, the Spatial Domain was unable to block the Divine Spear Waning Snow at all.
When the attack was powerful enough, even Spatial Domain would be useless.
After all, the current Divine Spear Waning Snow was already capable of creating tiny spatial cracks.
“Bang!” The three sectioned staff was forcibly thrust apart by the Divine Spear Waning Snow from the inside. The Divine Spear Waning Snow continued to thrust toward Tan Jiu’s neck. Tan Jiu who already knew that he cannot block the incoming strike have directly let his Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet out from his body. However…
With a twist of the Divine Spear Waning Snow that Qin Yu held, a weak ray of Dark and Yellow Energy burst forth from the tip of the spear and directly bonded Tan Jiu’s Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet. In an instant, the Nascent Soul and Jade Blood Golden Pellet have turned to dust.
“There’s one left!”
Qin Yu did not bother to care about the corpse before him. He once again started teleporting!
After two teleportations, Qin Yu had arrived inside the underground mansion. Qin Yu started to spread the Spatial Energy from his Universal World. With lightning speed, Qin Yu teleported three more times and continued to search the underground mansion. Only then, did he discovered that the situation was bad.
With a movement of his body, Qin Yu appeared inside a study room behind the underground mansion.
At this moment, there was surprisingly a tunnel on the wall of this room.
Qin Yu immediately grew anxious and angry. “What a mistake, truly a great mistake. This Tan Jiu had stayed in the underground mansion for countless years, how could he only leave a single tunnel? Although barely any time passed, but with his speed, I suspect he’d already reached several tens of miles away. My Spatial Energy is only capable of searching a range of around a hundred meters; without an exact direction, how could I possibly find him?”
Qin Yu was at a loss as to what to do.
This study room was located at the back of the underground mansion. The room where Qin Yu hid himself in was far away from this place. Thus, Qin Yu had never discovered that there was another secret tunnel here.
Everything was in vain. A Tan Jiu clone managed to escape.
“Forget about it, even if this Tan Jiu managed to survive, what could he possibly do after fleeing?” Qin Yu didn’t really care about it either. “Although he had discovered my secret of ‘teleportation,’ but would others believe him if he were to tell them?”
Teleportation was a remarkable ability that only Godkings possessed. This was an ironclad law of the Divine Realm for the past a hundred million and two quadrillion years.
Even if Tan Jiu were to tell others that there was someone who possess a remarkable ability similar to that of teleportation, how many people from the Divine Realm would actually believe him?
Although Qin Yu also knew that even if there weren’t going to be many people that would believe Tan Jiu, it would still make things troublesome for him. However, as Tan Jiu already escaped, Qin Yu could only comfort himself this way.
With a flash of his body, Qin Yu reappeared in the courtyard.
Seeing the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus on the pond of Unitary Heavy Water before him, Qin Yu started to smile. “For this Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, a Mid Level Heavenly Deity died and another Mid Level Heavenly Deity had lost eight of his nine clones.”
Qin Yu glanced at the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. His gaze then turned to the Divine Spear Waning Snow in his hand.
Although he had imagined the might of the Divine Spear Waning Snow before, but Qin Yu was still overjoyed to see how powerful it was in action.
A Mid Level Heavenly Deity using a Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact against him who used the Divine Spear Waning Snow with Divine Energy. However, even though this was the case, the Divine Spear Waning Snow still broke apart his opponent’s Mid Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
“Originally, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was comparable to a second-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. And now, its might was much more powerful than before. It was likely that even if it was to be inferior to a first-rated Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, it would not be much inferior.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
Furthermore, the current Divine Spear Waning Snow had only absorbed a very small amount of Dark and Yellow Energy. Exactly how powerful the Divine Spear Waning Snow would be once it finished absorbing it completely, Qin Yu was excited just thinking about it.
“If I hadn’t use the Divine Spear Waning Snow and had only used the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact Heavenly Divine Sword Scarlet Blood, then killing Tan Jiu would simply be a dream. However when I used the Divine Spear Waning Snow, I was able to trample upon him. A good weapon indeed provides a different result!”
Qin Yu became even more aware of the advantage of possessing a powerful weapon.
With an intention of his mind, the Divine Spear Waning Snow returned into Qin Yu’s Universal World and once again began absorbing the Dark and Yellow Energy.
“The Divine Spear Waning Snow is like teleportation, it’s best for me to only use them in important moments. Trump cards, the deeper I hide them, the better their effects.” Qin Yu thought in his heart. Qin Yu then looked to the pond before him.
With merely an intention, the Spatial Energy from the Universal World covered the entire pond of Unitary Heavy Water and the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. And then…
The Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus and the Unitary Heavy Water all disappeared. They had already arrived in the Universal World. As for Qin Yu, he too had disappeared from the underground mansion and entered into the Universal World.
Qin Yu stood on a piece of meadows. The Unitary Heavy Water and the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was floating before Qin Yu. When inside the Universal World, everything changed according to Qin Yu’s intention.
With an intention of his mind, the Unitary Heavy Water separated from the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus.
“The lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus could become a Magnificent Lotus Clone after refining it. The Magnificent Lotus Clone naturally possesses the Unitary Heavy Water Domain… its body’s toughness is even greater than that of a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.”
Qin Yu’s heart was extremely relaxed.
What the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus attracted him the most was the lotus core.
It was extremely hard for one to refine a clone. That was because a true clone required a soul. Who among ordinary people are capable of splitting their souls?
However, the lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was different. The lotus core was born through absorbing Grandmist Spiritual Energy. The entire lotus core was a conscious-less soul body. After Qin Yu finished refining it, he merely needed to leave a bit of his consciousness in it in order to obtain a clone.
Furthermore, Qin Yu believed that the fighting strength of the clone might be even greater than his own body.
“I shall combine this Unitary Heavy Water with the Unitary Heavy Water that I had obtained from the Dark Star Realm.” With an intention of his mind, a water ball of Unitary Heavy Water appeared floating in the sky. At the same time, beside this ball of Golden Elemental Heavy Water was another ball of Unitary Heavy Water and a golden bead.
This golden colored bead was extremely unusual. It was so cold that Qin Yu estimated that it was something that was impossible to refine unless one has reached the Embryo Soul level.
Right when Qin Yu was pondering…
“Mn?” Qin Yu opened his eyes wide in shock.
The golden bead voluntarily started flying toward the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus. At the same time, the black lotus core of the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus shot out a ray of black light. The golden bead also shot out a ray of golden light. The two lights actually started to wind together…
