Volume 15 – Splitting the Heaven and Earth Apart – Chapter 42 – Bad Situation
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Phillip and Robin
Jiang Lan was beaming with cheerful smiles. He walked to the side and sat on a chair. Li’er also walked over to Jiang Lan and sat on a chair beside him.
Jiang Lan closely looked at Li’er. He nodded satisfiedly and said. “Your cultivation speed’s pretty decent. Continue to train hard so that you can reach the High Level Heavenly Deity by the time you see Little Yu again.”
“Mn.” Li’er face was still slightly red. Soon after, she asked. “Uncle Lan, over a thousand years ago, that information that was spread out from the eastern region of the Divine Realm had provoked that many Heavenly Deities to want to chase and kill big brother Qin Yu. How is the situation now? Is big brother Qin Yu okay?”
Li’er was still worried about Qin Yu.
Jiang Lan chuckled and said. “Rest assured, in these thousand plus years, Little Yu has never shown himself. I have even searched the entire Divine Realm and also did not manage to discover him. I reckon that he must be in my Jiang Lan’s Realm.”
Even Jiang Lan could not imagine that Qin Yu was actually able to create his own world.
“Jiang Lan’s Realm… Uncle Lan, thank you.” Said Li’er thankfully. Li’er knew very well that Jiang Lan’s Realm was a major contributor to helping her big brother Qin Yu stay alive for so long. Furthermore, she also knew about the importance the Jiang Lan’s Realm held to Uncle Lan. How could Li’er possibly not be thankful of Uncle Lan giving his first Acquired Grandmist Spiritual Treasure to Qin Yu?
Jiang Lan shook his head and said. “Well then, let’s not talk about this anymore. You ought to know that with my strength… it is very unlikely for me to use Jiang Lan’s Realm. Only if a True Great War of the Divine Realm were to occur would I be forced to use the Jiang Lan’s Realm!”
“True Great War of the Divine Realm?” Confused, Li’er asked. “There are differences between the wars of the Divine Realm?”
“The Great War of the Divine Realm that occurs once even six billions years is merely the battle that the masses of the Divine Realm know about. However, in actuality, there are a lot of things that ordinary people and even Heavenly Deities do not know about. Well then, when it is time for you to know about these things, I will tell you about them. What you need to do right now is to continue training wholeheartedly.” Comforted Jiang Lan.
“Mn.” Li’er nodded her head obediently.
Li’er suddenly said. “Uncle Lan, a while back, my Imperial Father came to my place and talked with me.”
The smile on Jiang Lan’s face have instantly vanished.
“When did this occur?” Jiang Lan asked.
Li’er pondered for a moment and then said. “Roughly three hundred years ago. At that time, Uncle Lan, you just happened to not be in the Floating Snow City. My Imperial Father conducted a heart-to-heart chat with me…” Li’er had an expression of helplessness on her face.
If her Imperial Father were to force her to marry someone, then Li’er would rather die than submit. In that sort of situation, there was nothing that her Imperial Father could do to her.
However, when her Imperial Father conduct a heart-to-heart chat with her, this instead caused her to feel helpless.
“Big brother still hasn’t given up?” Two streams of air were shot out from Jiang Lan’s nostrils. “Li’er, how about this. From today on, I will leave a clone in the Wood Mansion. I shall see if my big brother would come over again!”
Li’er immediately felt a burst of relaxation.
There were Three Great Godkings in the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City. Among them, the Utmost North Sage Emperor and the Wood Mansion’s Godking had reached the Godking level a very very long time ago. The two of them possessed the strongest strength. When compared to the other Godking of the Floating Snow City, the Heaven’s Heart Godking, their strength was a lot greater than his.
Li’er knew very well that while her Imperial Father might not give face to the Heaven’s Heart Godking, he would not genuinely fight with Uncle Lan.
This was especially true because her Imperial Father still owed her Uncle Lan!
[Robin: As in, Her father still owed Jiang Lan a favor, not as in he still owed her "a Uncle Lan” :P]
“Well then, Li’er, you can ease your mind and continue to stay here. There is no need for you to concern yourself with other matters.” Jiang Lan stood up. Li’er also promptly stood up to see Jiang Lan off.
Jiang Lan smiled cheerfully and then walked out from the pavilion. He walked down the staircase and left.
“Your Lordship.” Chu Ji and Ji Shao, the two attendants that had followed Jiang Lan for the longest time followed behind Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan still had the scene of Li’er training quietly in his mind. “Li’er looks exactly like her when she’s training!” Upon thinking of this, Jiang Lan felt a burst of heartache.
Even now, Jiang Lan was unable to forget…
The figure that had fallen from the sky, the two most sparking, translucent and dazzling tears that slid down her face and the desolate smile that she still had on her exquisite beautiful face before her death.
That scene was forever carved on Jiang Lan’s soul! Forever, he would never forget it!
“A’Mei, you’ve chosen Li’er and Little Yu. Thus, I will use my life to protect them!” Said Jiang Lan resolutely.
Eastern region of the Divine Realm. Inside Yuchi City.
When the Dark Curtain of Night of the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City covered the Divine Realm, Yuchi City was also covered in a layer of darkness. According to the rules of Yuchi City, in night time, no one was allowed to walk the streets.
In the majority of the locations of Yuchi City, quietness resumed. However, there were privileged existences in any location. Likewise, there were some special places.
The Pity Fragrant Building was an extremely bustling place in the Yuchi City. Especially at night, this place would be brightly lit.
There was no army that would come here to investigate. That was because those who could step into the Pity Fragrant Building possessed either status or wealth. During any given day, there were always people from the upper echelons of Yuchi City gathered here.
The Pity Fragrant Building occupied an extremely huge region. Within it were numerous different areas.
Inside the Guest Welcoming Hall of the Pity Fragment Building.
The Guest Welcoming Hall was the largest hall in the entire Pity Fragment Building. However, there were not many seats in the Guest Welcoming Hall. There were only a total of twenty four seats. One must spend an extremely large number of Divine Spiritual Stones in order to be qualified to sit in one of those seats.
At this moment in the Guest Welcoming Hall, there were eighteen females wearing extremely thin gauze dresses while dancing a special dance. The gauze dresses that these eighteen females were wearing were so thin that one could practically see through to their naked bodies.
However, the dance that these eighteen girls danced gave off a sense of relaxation. It was an exceptionally beautiful sensation that causes one to completely ignore one’s carnal desires.
There were twelve seats on either sides of the Guest Welcoming Hall. The seats were arranged in pairs.
At this moment, Qin Yu was sitting in one of the seats.
“Xi Shuang, to be honest, I truly admire that Qin Yu. He is merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity yet he dared to kill all the way to the Black Dragon Pool and even killed a Low Level Heavenly Deity of the Black Dragon Pool while seriously injuring the other two. Even that Lord Black Dragon has hidden himself. Amazing, truly amazing.” Said that fatty beside Qin Yu to Qin Yu.
This fatty was called ‘Chu Liuqing.’ Or, according to the fatty, ‘one must always show mercy.’
[T[TL: This fat dude’s name is Chu Liuqing. Liuqing is his name, which also means show mercy or forgiveness. So this fatty’s name is basically, Chu SpareMe. Which he thus decided to make a pun out of his name saying ‘one must always spare others.’]p>
“Fatty Chu, I’ve heard that many people want to kill that Qin Yu for the treasures that he possesses.” Qin Yu said. Qin Yu had investigated the rumor in Yuchi City for some time now and had discovered that there were actually many different versions of the rumor.
The reason why rumors were called rumors was because even if the rumors were real at the beginning, the more they spread the more excessive they become.
“Heh, treasures?” Fatty Chu’s stealthy tiny black eyes glanced at the beautiful women that’s dancing before him. He then humped and said. “What sort of treasures does that Qin Yu have? No one knows for certain. There are people saying that Qin Yu possesses two High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifacts, a large number of other treasures, a Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus and a remarkable ability. Fucking hell, who do those people spreading the rumors think that Qin Yu is? He’s merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity. Did they think that he was a Godking? That many treasures! I don’t believe it one bit.”
Fatty Chu pulled Qin Yu’s arm and said. “Hey, Xi Shuang, I’ve heard another version that’s even more exaggerated. There’s actually people saying that Qin Yu possessed a remarkable ability similar to that of ‘teleportation.’ Bullfuckingshit. Whoever it was that was spreading this rumor truly wasn’t even thinking logically. Truly laughable.”
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
However, Qin Yu was thinking in his heart. “Fatty Chu, I actually possess even more treasures than in the rumors that are being spread around. Furthermore, I also know how to teleport. Unfortunately for you, I cannot tell you about this!”
Among all the different versions of the rumors, there was some similarities… ‘Qin Yu definitely possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, Qin Yu possessed some treasures and Qin Yu was a Low Level Heavenly Deity!’
“Fatty Chu.” Said an old man beside him with a smile on his face. “I’ve heard you talking about that Qin Yu. Let me tell you, you’d best believe me, that Qin Yu definitely possesses a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and possesses fire attribute treasures. He is merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity. For him to have that many treasures, there are definitely a lot of people that wanted to take them from him.”
Fatty Chu knew that old man. After all, the two of them frequently visit this Pity Fragrant Building.
“He is merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity? You make it sound so easy. If Qin Yu was in front of you, would you dare say the same thing?” Said Fatty Chu with a mocking tone.
Heavenly Deities; the number of Heavenly Deities in the Divine Realm was extremely small.
A Heavenly Deity would only appear among a million Deities. Over half of all the Heavenly Deities that originated from Yuchi City were gathered at Mount Dazzling Gold. The number of Heavenly Deities that ended up staying in Yuchi City was less than a hundred.
And among all those Heavenly Deities, the majority of them were in seclusion training. For the Heavenly Deities that would come to enjoy the pleasures of life in a place like the Pity Fragrant Building, it was extremely rare if a single one of them were to show up.
“That Tan Jiu plotted to try to kill me or perhaps he was trying to force me to not dare show myself. However, it would appear now that the might of the rumors are still within a limit that I can bear.”
Qin Yu gulped the wine in the wine cup in his hand.
What Qin Yu feared the most was having his ‘teleportation’ or the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus discovered.
However it would appear that the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus had never appeared in the rumors. There was merely rumors regarding the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus. Furthermore, among the different rumors, the ones regarding teleportation were the ones that had the least number of people believing it.
“This Tan Jiu, he did not publicize the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus and only mentioned the Seven Colored Magnificent Lotus, could it be…” Qin Yu had a thought. “Could this Tan Jiu be trying to become the oriole from behind that stalks the mantis as it stalks the cicada? He was afraid if he mentioned the Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus, experts too powerful would come and then he would not be able to obtain the treasures?”
This Nine Petaled Magnificent Lotus was definitely precious enough to attract High Level Heavenly Deities to come. It might even attract a Godking or two.
In the Guest Welcoming Hall, the eighteen practically naked female dancers had withdrawn.
What replaced them was a beautiful young woman who wore a crimson colored qipao looking gown. She looked around at everyone present and then said. “Everyone, please be quiet. Right now, we shall present the ‘Qin and Xiao Duet’ who have ascended from the Flying Rise Realm. I believe everyone knows about the skill these twin sisters have in the Qin and Xiao. Everyone should be very familiar with the two of them. Thus, I believe there is no need for me to further introduce the two of them. And today, it is the date of the once-a-year performance from the two of them.”
[T[TL: Qin is Guqin. A chinese plucked string instrument. Xiao is a chinese flute instrument.]p>
“Ha, the reason why I came today was precisely to hear the performance of the Qin and Xiao Dual.” Fatty Chu was the first to cry out.
In an instant, the Guest Welcoming Hall had grown bustling with noise and excitement.
As for Qin Yu, he started to drink wine out of his wine cup as he calmly looked to the two beautiful woman performing in the side hall beside the Guest Welcoming Hall. There was only a pearl curtain blocking the Guest Welcoming Hall from the side hall.
The sounds of the Qin and the Xiao resonated through the Guest Welcoming Hall like bird-cries. Everyone in the Guest Welcoming Hall felt as if they have entered into a world of Qin and Xiao. They were completely immersed in the music and have forgotten about their surroundings.
In the entire Guest Welcoming Hall, only Qin Yu remained sober.
While the music of the Qin and Xiao was sounding, Qin Yu suddenly saw two same looking males walking in from the entrance of the Guest Welcoming Hall.
“Two Low Level Heavenly Deities?” Qin Yu was slightly shocked as he looked over. The attendant outside the Guest Welcoming Hall was simply unable to block these two men at all. After the two of them had entered the Guest Welcoming Hall, they proceeded to quietly listen to the sound of the Qin and Xiao.
When the performance was over.
These two cold looking men both started clapping cheerfully. One of them spoke and said. “Never had I expected that the Yuchi City would actually have experts of music that reached such level with the Qin and the Xiao.”
The crimson gowned woman who was originally the program hostess promptly walked over. “Lords Heavenly Deities, welcome to our Pity Fragrant Building.” This woman’s eyesight was extremely pungent. She actually managed to tell that these two were Heavenly Deities.
“There are quite many Heavenly Deities coming to the Pity Fragrant Building recently. Practically all of them came from outside Yuchi City. They all came for that Qin Yu. These two Heavenly Deities ought to be here for Qin Yu too.” Said Fatty Chu to Qin Yu in a low voice while smiling.
Qin Yu’s eyebrows were raised.
It would appear that a lot of people thought him to be a Low Level Heavenly Deity that was easy to be bullied.
“I’ve heard that the Heaven Numbered Pavilion of your Pity Fragrant Building was pretty famous. Prepare two Heaven Numbered Pavilions for us two brothers.” Proudly said a Low Level Heavenly Deity among the two.
That crimson gowned sweet and charming woman promptly said. “Lords Heavenly Deities, our Pity Fragrant Building only has a total of three Heaven Numbered Pavilions. As for these three Heaven Numbered Pavilions, they have been rented by three other Heavenly Deities for several hundred years already. Even many of the Earth Numbered Pavilions were rented by Heavenly Deities.”
“Go and tell them that we are the Wu Clan Brothers. I believe they would know what to do then.” Said one of the men proudly.
That crimson gowned woman lowered her voice and said. “Lords Heavenly Deities, the three Lords Heavenly Deities that have rented the three Heaven Numbered Pavilions, two of them are Mid Level Heavenly Deities. As for the other one… he is the boss of the two Heavenly Deities!”
These two Wu Clan Brothers were instantly startled.
Qin Yu cannot help himself from frowning. “They’ve all come for me? The two Heavenly Deities that lived in the Heaven Numbered Pavilions, two of them are Mid Level Heavenly Deities… and the other one, could he be a High Level Heavenly Deity?”
If it was a High Level Heavenly Deity, it would also be hard for Qin Yu to handle him.
