From the time when Qin Yu attacked Chi Hongfeng and her subordinates till the time he finished absorbing them, only a moment had passed. This time around, all twenty three Heavenly Deities that came to attack Qin Yu were captured by Qin Yu at once.
Adding on the six from earlier, and the Wu Clan Brothers, Qin Yu had obtained thirty one Heavenly Deity level servants.
Mount Bewitch You. Beside the alpine lake.
The water of the alpine lake was calm like a mirror, reflecting the sky. Occassionaly, mountain wind would blow past, causing a layer of ripples to form on the surface of the water. Qin Yu was standing beside the alpine lake with his hands behind his back, his long gown being blown adrift by the wind.
With a wave of his hand, the twenty three Heavenly Deities who Qin Yu had just captured appeared before him.
Chi Hongfeng, Xianyu Yang and Lanshan Huo stood to the front whereas the other twenty three Heavenly Deities were behind them. At the moment the twenty three Heavenly Deities saw Qin Yu, they all bowed and respectfully said. “Master!”
Once one was captured into the God Sealing Pagoda, one’s soul would be bound. Thus, these twenty three Heavenly Deities could only accept their fate and follow Qin Yu.
Chi Hongfeng, Xianyu Yang and Lanshan Huo looked at Qin Yu with gazes filled with shock and awe. When they saw each other in the God Sealing Pagoda, they knew that the other person was also captured by Qin Yu.
Why was it that the three of them, all Mid Level Heavenly Deities, did not possess even the slightest power to resist when faced with Qin Yu, a Low Level Heavenly Deity? They were unable to understand why. Thus, the ‘master’ that stood before them appeared even more mysterious to them.
Qin Yu glanced at everyone present. He then said. “From today hence, you all shall be my servants. As for all the matters that you all need to do, it will be in the care of Uncle Fu.” With an intention from Qin Yu, Uncle Fu appeared beside Qin Yu from the Jiang Lan’s Realm.
“Uncle Fu.” All twenty three of these Heavenly Deities were extremely respectful and modest.
Uncle Fu already knew about Qin Yu’s intention. Upon seeing this group of Heavenly Deities, Uncle Fu bowed to Qin Yu and said with a smile. “Never had I anticipated that in the blink of an eye, master would capture twenty three Heavenly Deities.”
“Uncle Fu, they shall be under your administration.” Said Qin Yu with a light smile.
“This old servant will definitely manage them well.” Uncle Fu looked at the twenty three Heavenly Deities. He nodded. Then, with an intention, Qin Yu moved Uncle Fu and the twenty three Heavenly Deities into the second layer space of Jiang Lan’s Realm.
Like a cat, Qin Yu was standing on top of a tree and looking to the distance.
“It will likely be a while before the next group of Heavenly Deities arrives.” Qin Yu did not want to wait here in vain. Thus, he directly flew into the Trapping Array. Qin Yu proceeded to sit cross-legged in the center region of the Trapping Array.
Qin Yu didn’t care about when those Heavenly Deities would come, because he knew that in the end, those Heavenly Deities would definitely enter his Trapping Array to find him.
“I reckon that I will be able to reach a breakthrough in my soul within a hundred years. By the time my Divine Energy transforms into Heavenly Divine Energy, I reckon I’ll be able to open the third layer space of Jiang Lan’s Realm. At that time, I will be able to see Li’er again.” Qin Yu had a slight smile on his face.
Qin Yu was very certain about his own soul’s level. Qin Yu had been at the peak of the High Level Deity stage for numerous years. When his comprehension of formation arrays reached the level four formation array level, it meant that Qin Yu had broken through the membrane that separated the High Level Deity stage from the Low Level Heavenly Deity stage.
A hundred years should be more enough for Qin Yu to completely surmount the threshold of Heavenly Deity.
Training in formation arrays was indeed also a means of increasing one’s soul’s level. With a flip of his hand, Qin Yu took out a golden scroll. This golden scroll was the scroll that contained the detailed descriptions of level seven and level eight formation arrays by the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan.
Qin Yu understood that for level one formation arrays to level six formation arrays, the method to deduce them goes from simple to complicated. Although he was currently only at the fourth level of formation arrays, Qin Yu was confident that as long as he had sufficient time, he would be able to reach the sixth level of formation arrays.
However, the level seven formation arrays and the level eight formation arrays were instead extremely simple. One could tell how simple they were by the fact that a single golden scroll managed to contain the information regarding both level seven and level eight formation arrays.
“What sort of mysteries do the level seven and level eight formation arrays contain?”
Qin Yu began to read the scroll carefully once again. It would require a very long time just to set up ordinary level three or level four formation arrays. For level five and level six formation arrays, the amount of time it required to set them up was frighteningly long. However, for level seven and level eight formation arrays, one could set them up in a couple breaths worth of time.
“The level seven formation arrays seem to be very simple. However, how could such simple methods be able to contain such great amount of power?” Qin Yu was unable to understand this.
This was already not the first time Qin Yu read the information regarding the level seven formation arrays. He had read it time and time again, yet he was still unable to solve the mystery of its profoundness. Qin Yu then proceeded to look at the final formation array… the sole level eight formation array.
“Senior Chehou’s highest accomplishment in formation arrays is truly astonishing. With the five elements of gold (metal), wood, water, fire and earth as the foundation, yin and yang as the darkness and light, and lightning as punishment. It’s simple and logical. However, this great formation array formed through this method, its might seems to be overly powerful.”
Qin Yu was unable to set up this great formation array. Thus, he was unable to personally experience the might of this formation array.
He was only able to read the descriptions regarding this great formation array left behind by Chehou Yuan himself. According to Chehou Yuan, once this formation array finished being set up, there would be no need for foundations for this formation array. It would be able to absorb the frantic Divine Spiritual Energy of the Divine Realm and use it to create a miniature world. This formation array was so powerful that no one, other than experts at the Godking level, would be able to break through it.
Without the need for formation foundations. Capable of creating a miniature world. This formation array could be said as having no flaws.
“It truly is that powerful? Unfortunately I do not know whether Senior Chehou Yuan is alive or dead now. If Senior Chehou Yuan is still living, then I would be able to personally see the might of this great formation array.” Qin Yu sighed in his heart. Suddenly, Qin Yu’s ears moved. A smile appeared on his face. “More Heavenly Deities have come?”
At the foot of the Mount Bewitch You. At this moment, over a dozen Heavenly Deities were gathered. This group of Heavenly Deities were led by a pair of sisters. These two sisters were both very pretty and enchanting. The sisters were the only two Mid Level Heavenly Deities among these people.
“Big sister, why isn’t there anyone else other than us here? That shouldn’t be the case. There were many other Heavenly Deities that set off before us.” Le Yurao, who wore a pink gauze dress, frowned as she asked.
Le Yurao and Le Yuyao were the famous ‘Enchanting Sisters.’ These two Mid Level Heavenly Deities possessed strength that one cannot underestimate.
“That Xianyu Yang and Lanshan Huo all set off before us. Regardless of what happened, there should be many Heavenly Deities here.” Le Yuyao looked at Mount Bewitch You extremely cautiously. “If they were to fall to Mount Bewitch You, we most definitely cannot allow ourselves to also fall to it.”
Le Yurao nodded.
Right when these two sisters were bewildered by what was happening, another group of ten plus Heavenly Deities flew over from behind. In this group of Heavenly Deities, there was a single Mid Level Heavenly Deity.
“Little Enchanting Sisters, to see you two here is truly a happy occasion.” A clear voice sounded. The leader among the group of ten plus Heavenly Deities, a cultured and refined white clothed youth, took the lead and descended to the ground.
Le Yuyao and Le Yurao immediately greeted the incoming person with loud and clear voices. “Hello, Young Master Yigong.”
Le Yuyao and Le Yurao had long since heard about the distinguished name of ‘Yigong Shu.’ One must know that there were also distinctions between Mid Level Heavenly Deities. The strong ones among them were those like the Nine-headed Black Dragon Tan Jiu, Liu Yuxi and them. For them, even handling five or six Mid Level Heavenly Deities by themselves wouldn’t be too hard.
As for Yigong Shu, he was someone at the same level as Tan Jiu.
Wearing a scholar’s headpiece and a white gown, Young Master Yigong lightly smiled and said. “Little Enchanting Sisters, why are you the only people here? Where’s Miss Chi? I know that she has arrived already.”
“We haven’t seen her.” Said Le Yuyao.
Le Yurao continued. “When we set off from Yuchi City, we obtained information that Lanshan Huo and Xianyu Yang had already set off. However, when we got here, we couldn’t find a single person. We suspect that they are either dead or trapped in the great formation arrays.”
“Xianyu Yang?” Yigong Shu frowned. “This Xianyu Yang is an expert of formation arrays. Even he has fallen to Qin Yu?”
Le Yuyao and Le Yurao also nodded. “That’s the only possible explanation.”
Yigong Shu turned around to look at Mount Bewitch You. He was able to clearly sense that the entire Mount Bewitch You was radiating energy from different kinds of formation arrays. His heart grew heavy. “It seems that the formation arrays that this Qin Yu has set up are very powerful.”
“That’s right, they’re very powerful.” Le Yurao and Le Yuyao also looked at Mount Bewitch You.
This two groups of people, that numbered close to thirty, all quietly looked at Mount Bewitch You. They felt a sudden burst of shivering in their hearts. They were able to imagine exactly how many formation arrays there were around Mount Bewitch You.
The quiet Mount Bewitch You appeared like a vicious beast lying in wait. Whenever someone passed by this vicious beast, they would be swallowed up by it. For a moment, not a single one of the close to thirty Heavenly Deities dared to proceed onward.
As time passed, Heavenly Deities in groups of seven or eight, or two or three started arriving. The number of Heavenly Deity experts at the foot of Mount Bewitch You became bigger and bigger.
However, the more people arrived, the more certain they became of one thing… Chi Hongfeng, Xianyu Yang and Lanshan Huo, three Mid Level Heavenly Deities who possessed some reputation, had all fallen to Mount Bewitch You.
After half a day, the number of Heavenly Deities gathered here was already greater than fifty.
At this moment, there were also five Mid Level Heavenly Deities. Other than the Enchanting Sisters and Yigong Shu, there was also the ice-cold Heavenly Deity beauty Liu Bing and… Nine-headed Black Dragon ‘Tan Jiu.’
Tan Jiu who had hidden himself for so many years, had finally shown himself today.
“Are we are still waiting?” Liu Bing’s gaze was cast towards the other four Mid Level Heavenly Deities. Liu Bing was tall and possessed an amazing figure. Her silver hair increased her aura of coldness. Especially that pair of eyes of hers, they appeared to be eternally void of emotions.
Le Yuyao smiled charmingly. “Little sister Liu Bing, do not be anxious. Three Mid Level Heavenly Deities have already fallen inside those formation arrays. Unless we have absolute certainty, it’s best for us to wait a bit longer.”
“I think that we should set off to break the formation arrays.” A shiny light flashed through the scholarly Yigong Shu’s eyes. “Those three Mid Level Heavenly Deities, their strength can only be considered mid-tier. However, us here… there’s Black Dragon and I. If even we are unable to kill that Qin Yu, then it would truly be strange.” Yigong Shu was filled with confidence.
Among the current five Mid Level Heavenly Deities, Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu possessed the strongest strength.
Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu each possessed strength that was greater than Xianyu Yang, Lanshan Huo and Chi Hongfeng combined. With the two of them, they indeed possessed a real great possibility of success.
“Since young master Yigong is in approval of setting off, then I shall also approve of it.” Said Tan Jiu coldly.
Tan Jiu had come this time precisely to be the oriole behind the mantis. However, it required much skill to properly play the role of the oriole. If he were to wait to attack, till after everyone had already taken the treasures, then wouldn’t he be unable to get anything? Because of that, Tan Jiu had shown himself.
Yigong Shu smiled and said. “Good. Since Brother Black Dragon also approves of it, then this matter shall be simple. What is the most important now is who among our fifty plus Heavenly Deities shall be the leader, giving the orders and controlling the situation?”
Liu Bing, Le Yurao and Le Yuyao all looked towards Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu.
The leader of this group could only be either Yigong Shu or Tan Jiu. If one were to become the leader, then he would have the authority to order what everyone must do. Thus, this person would naturally have a higher chance of obtaining Qin Yu’s treasures.
Yigong Shu looked at Tan Jiu. He knew that this ‘Lord Black Dragon’ was someone who was very hard to talk with. However, in order to obtain the treasures that Qin Yu possessed, Yigong Shu knew that he must certainly become the leader.
“I am not interested. Young master Yigong can be the leader.” Said Tan Jiu indifferently.
Yigong Shu was startled. He had even prepared many excuses and arguments to persuade Tan Jiu. Yigong Shu immediately smiled and said. “Good. Since Black Dragon has said so, then I shall be the leader of this group of fifty six Heavenly Deities. From now on, everyone must listen to me and do as I say.”
Yigong Shu’s gaze was cast towards all the Heavenly Deities. None of them protested.
Even the cold and proud Liu Bing did not oppose it. After all, strength was the most important aspect.
Tan Jiu glanced at Yigong Shu. He was laughing coldly in his heart. “Do you think that Qin Yu will be that easy to take care of? Humph… if you are careless, then you’ll only suffer death.” Tan Jiu was forever unable to forget about the spear that Qin Yu had.
At this moment, Yigong Shu had already started assigning what everyone would do with a smile on his face. “Enchanting Sisters, the two of you will lead twenty Low Level Heavenly Deities, after all…” Yigong Shu stopped in the middle of his speech right after starting it.
Three figures were flying over rapidly.
“Everyone, listen up. My Lord has ordered, and you all must listen to my Lord’s order in how to break Mount Bewitch You’s great formation arrays and killing Qin Yu.” A loud shout sounded from far away.
The fifty six Heavenly Deities immediately looked over to the distant place.
“Who dares to be this arrogant?”
“It’s only three people. They don’t seem to be very powerful. Why should we listen to them?”
“Jin Kong, it’s Jin Kong and his brother!” Le Yuyao suddenly said in shock. “For them brothers to come, then… that Lord that they spoke of. Wouldn’t it be…”
Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu’s expression changed. Yigong Shu’s gaze turned cold. He then said two words. “Mister Qiuzhong!”
In the Divine Realm, Mid Level Heavenly Deities were generally extremely powerful beings in bandit powers. As for High Level Heavenly Deities, they were individuals that all the major powers fought each other for. How many High Level Heavenly Deities would actually go and become bandits?
In sixty four cities of the eastern region of the Divine Realm, the strongest person among all the bandits… Mister Qiuzhong was the sole High Level Heavenly Deity among all the bandits powers present.
No one had ever imagined that Qin Yu was actually able to attract even Mister Qiuzhong. After all, Mister Qiuzhong already possessed a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
“Fuck. The situation has turned bad.” Tan Jiu’s expression had grown gloomy.
He had hidden the fact that Qin Yu possessed the spear shaped Grandmist Spiritual Treasure and Nine Petaled Magnificant Lotus precisely because he feared that people too powerful would come. Now that a High Level Heavenly Deity have arrived, how would he, Tan Jiu, possibly be able to obtain the treasures?
