Volume 15 – Splitting the Heaven and Earth Apart – Chapter 48 – Formation Array ‘Universe’
Translated by: Pumpkin

When Qin Yu flew out from the formation array to inspect the surroundings, he was still thinking about the level eight formation array from the golden scroll.
“This level eight formation array, how, how…” Qin Yu had a sort of uncertain feeling that he was unable to explain.
This formation array seemed to be very familiar.
That’s right. It was extremely familiar. Qin Yu seemed to have a memory in his mind that was related with this formation array. However, regardless of how hard Qin Yu thought, he was unable to recall when he had seen this formation array before.
As he continued to think about the level eight formation array, Qin Yu saw the large group of Heavenly Deities located at the foot of Mount Bewitch You.
“Mn, Tan Jiu has also appeared.” Qin Yu’s eyes shined. That dark skinned youngster with scarlet short haired and scarlet colored brows, wasn’t he Tan Jiu? And at this moment, Tan Jiu was bowing to a green clothed scholarly looking man.
“That Tan Jiu can already be considered as having reached the peak of Mid Level Heavenly Deity, why would he be that respectful to that blue clothed scholarly looking man?” The scene that Qin Yu saw had shocked him.
To be able to make Tan Jiu this respectful, what sort of strength would this person have?
“Could it be that there are truly High Level Heavenly Deities that have come for me?” Seems like this has turned troublesome.” Qin Yu frowned. The current Qin Yu was no longer as relaxed as he was before.
Tan Jiu, Yigong Shu, Le Yuyao, Le Yurao and Liu Bing all respectfully bowed and said. “Mister Qiuzhong.”
Qiuzhong Fu was a very prideful person. He disliked what the title that ordinary bandit bosses addressed themselves as: Lord, Boss, and such. Instead, he demanded other to address him as ‘Mister.”
Qiuzhong Fu wore blue clothes. Beside him were his two personal subordinates, Jin Kong and his brother Jin Long. In normal circumstances, these two brothers would follow Qiuzhong Fu wherever he goes.
“Mn.” Qiuzhong Fu lightly nodded. “In a short while, I will be breaking the great formation array and will then kill that Qin Yu. If there is anything in Qin Yu’s body that I do not fancy, I will gift them to you all. However, I do not wish for you all to take your own initiative and not listen to my orders. Understand?”
“Understood!” Even Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu were extremely respectful and didn’t dare to have the slightest amount of disrespect.
Qiuzhong Fu lightly nodded. He then ordered. “Jin Kong, you are in charge of the people here. Remember, allocate how many Low Level Heavenly Deities a Mid Level Heavenly Deities leads according to their strength.”
“Yes, my lord.” Said Jin Kong respectfully. He then coldly looked at the other Mid Level Heavenly Deities. “Le Yuyao, you are to lead those six Low Level Heavenly Deities.” Jin Kong pointed and marked six Low Level Heavenly Deities with his Heavenly Divine Energy.
“Yes.” Le Yuyao lightly smiled and accepted the order.
One by one, the orders continued. Le Yuyao, Le Yurao and Liu Bing ended up leading close to twenty Low Level Heavenly Deities combined. As for the rest, they were being led by Tan JIu and Yigong Shu. Tan Jiu and Yigong Shu were extremely powerful. Their skills in using the Spatial Domain was also much better than the three women.
“Brother Jin Kong, are you all not going to lead any Low Level Heavenly Deities?” Said Yigong Shu with a light smile on his face.
As Jin Kong and Jin Long always follow Qiuzhong Fu, their status was naturally high. However, their own strengths were inferior to Yigong Shu. Thus, their attitude toward Yigong Shu when talking was still respectful.
“Of course we’ll be leading. Our men are still on their way. Their flying speed is much slower than ours.” Said Jin Kong with a smile.
Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu started to curse in their hearts.
Doesn’t this mean that this Mister Qiuzhong has rapidly flown over here so that he can make everyone listen to his commands? Everyone was able to guess the intention of this Mister Qiuzhong. He did this precisely because he feared that Yigong Shu and them would be able to obtain Qin Yu’s treasures before him.
After a long period of time, twenty three Low Level Heavenly Deities had arrived. These twenty three Low Level Heavenly Deities were all Qiuzhong Fu’s subordinates.
Yigong Shu and them were originally fifty six Heavenly Deities. With the addition of the twenty six new Heavenly Deities, Qiuzhong Fu, Jin Kong and Jin Long, they now numbered a total of eighty two Heavenly Deities.
The eighty two Heavenly Deities were separated into seven groups led by the seven Mid Level Heavenly Deities.
As for Qiuzhong Fu, he was standing in the air by himself and looking at Mount Bewitch You in the distance.
“Jin Kong, you seven groups are to cooperate in breaking the formation arrays. If you discover any formation array that you cannot break apart, you are to come and inform me about it.” Ordered Qiuzhong Fu indifferently.
“Yes.” Jin Kong, Jin Long, Tan Jiu, Yigong Shu and the rest of them all bowed to accept the order. While on the surface everyone was extremely respectful, Tan Jiu and Yigong Shu were actually madly enraged in their hearts.
Who among them didn’t wish to obtain Qin Yu’s treasures? However, what could they do now? They had turned into Qiuzhong Fu’s lackeys. It was not that they wanted to be lackeys but rather that they had no choice but to be lackeys. If they dared to resist Qiuzhong Fu, Tan Jiu and Yigong Shu were a hundred percent certain that Qiuzhong Fu would directly kill them.
The seven groups took to the sky simultaneously. All seven of them spread out their Spatial Domains.
Although everyone was restraining their power, Tan Jiu and Yigong Shu’s Spatial Domains were still spread to a circumference of three to four hundred meters. As for the other five people, their spatial domains were only about a hundred meters circumference. With all of them working together, ordinary illusion arrays were simply unable to stop them at all. As for the Attacking Arrays, they too were unable to break through the Spatial Domains. With extreme ease, they destroyed the surface of Mount Bewitch You thoroughly and broke through the formation arrays with brute force.
One, two, three… in a blink of an eye, over twenty great formation arrays were broken through.
At the moment when they broke through thirty great formation arrays, the groups finally stopped. Jin Kong said to Qiuzhong Fu who stood in the air. “My Lord, it is a bit hard for us to break through this great formation array.”
The formation array before them was a relatively large Trapping Array. It was a Trapping Array at the peak level of level three formation arrays. If Yigong Shu and Tan Jiu were to use a large amount of their energy, it was still possible for them to break through this formation array. However, at this moment, Yigong Shu and them did not want to exhaust a large amount of their energy.
“Oh?” Qiuzhong Fu glanced at this formation array. He smiled indifferently and said. “Merely a small formation array. You all, step aside.”
The numerous Heavenly Deities immediately stepped far away. Qiuzhong Fu merely grabbed the space before him a couple times as he stood in the air, and a couple places in that peak level three formation array completely shattered. In an instant, one of this Trapping Array’s foundations had been broken.
A Trapping Array with a foundation broken naturally became a lot weaker. Even Mid Level Heavenly Deities were capable of easily breaking it now.
“You all, continue.” Said Qiuzhong Fu coldly.
Tan Jiu and Yigong Shu both felt shiver in their hearts. There was a difference in the area of space that a High Level Heavenly Deity could destroy. When they saw the area that Qiuzhong Fu had instantly destroyed, they knew right away that Qiuzhong Fu was a relatively powerful High Level Heavenly Deity.
“Spatial Destruction? As expected, he’s a High Level Heavenly Deity.” Qin Yu who was within the vast forest of the Mount Bewitch You was quietly watching all that was unfolding.
Upon seeing that Qiuzhong Fu easily destroyed a small region of space, the small bit of hope that Qin Yu previously had also instantly vanished.
“If I were to rely on teleportation and my Divine Spear Waning Snow, killing this High Level Heavenly Deity…” Qin Yu started to simulation the battle in his mind. In the end, he shook his head. “There’s no certainty of winning!”
Qin Yu knew very well that High Level Heavenly Deities knew more than just ‘Spatial Destruction.’ They also knew ‘Spatial Domain.’ Furthermore, the binding ability of their Spatial Domain was even greater than those of Mid Level Heavenly Deities.
Once Qin Yu were to get caught into his Spatial Domain, the Divine Spear Waning Snow would be caught into a very powerful restriction energy and its speed would definitely not be fast enough.
And at that moment, his opponent was totally able to come and attack him instead.
Although he could escape with teleportation, he would be unable to kill his opponent. Thus, it was not worth it for Qin Yu to disclose his hidden trump cards.
Qin Yu who was hiding within the center of the dense forest suddenly sent a binding gaze. In reaction, he turned to look over. It was precisely that Qiuzhong Fu who was standing in the sky.
“He discovered me?” Qin Yu was startled.
Qiuzhong Fu’s gaze turned cold. He suddenly shouted violently. Like thousands of rolling thunders, his voice sounded in Qin Yu’s ears. At the same time, an overbearing Divine Awareness directly rushed into Qin Yu’s mind.
Divine Awareness attack!
Qin Yu felt a burst of shock to his mind. And at this moment, that Qiuzhong Fu rushed downward with lightning speed. Qiuzhong Fu’s eyes were filled with confidence. “A mere Low Level Heavenly Deity, after receiving my Divine Awareness attack, by the time your mind becomes sober, I’ll already have caught you.”
Divine Awareness attack was the same as soul energy attack. If the gap between the two people’s soul levels were too great, using Divine Awareness attack would be an extremely fast type of attack. However, if there was barely any gap between the two parties, using Divine Awareness attack would injure both parties.
From Qiuzhong Fu’s point of view, as he was a High Level Heavenly Deity, if he were to use his Divine Awareness to attack a Low Level Heavenly Deity, he would at the very least cause this Low Level Heavenly Deity to be in a muddleheaded state for quite some time.
However, Qin Yu merely had his soul jolted for a moment. His Meteoric Tear emitted rays of green lights. In a blink of an eye, Qin Yu had woken up.
“What a powerful High Level Heavenly Deity.” Gasped Qin Yu in his heart. With lightning speed, Qin Yu rushed into the level four formation array beside him.
“Mn?” Qiuzhong Fu was startled. “He’s already recovered? Could it be that he’s a Mid Level Heavenly Deity and that the information gathered about him before was mistaken?”
If the gap between them was not great, and was instead only a single level, the Divine Awareness attack would not amount to much.
“You think you’ll be okay after hiding in the great formation array?” Qiuzhong Fu had a smile on his face.
Inside the level four formation array.
Qin Yu was now met with two choices. One was to fight against this Qiuzhong Fu. The second was to directly escape into his Universal World. Having stirred up the entire Divine Realm, Qin Yu truly do not wish to end up hiding himself.
“Bang!” “Bang!” “Bang!” “Bang!” …
Sounds of explosions continued outside. Qin Yu knew that the formation arrays outside were being broken through one by one by the combined force of those Mid Level Heavenly Deities. Level three formation arrays were indeed unable to stop Tan Jiu and them for a long time.
“Qin Yu, are you truly planning to hide yourself in the great formation array?” Qiuzhong Fu’s voice sounded. “I suggest that you should come out. Otherwise, if you were to fall into the spatial cracks, there would be no one capable of saving you.”
Qin Yu smiled coldly as he stayed in the formation array.
“He wants me out?” Qin Yu completely understood what Qiuzhong Fu was thinking. If he remained in the great formation array, then this Qiuzhong Fu would not dare to rashly use his ‘Spatial Destruction’ to destroy this level four formation array.
That was because Qiuzhong Fu didn’t know where in the formation array Qin Yu was hiding. If he were to destroy the area of space where Qin Yu was,while breaking the formation array, then not only would Qin Yu get sucked into the spatial cracks and be killed, the treasures that he possessed would also drift into the spatial cracks and Qiuzhong Fu would not be able to obtain them.
Thus, while Qin Yu could be killed, he couldn’t be sent into a spatial crack.
Outside the level four formation array.
Qiuzhong Fu had an ice-cold expression. Standing behind him awaiting the orders were the seven Mid Level Heavenly Deities and the large number of Low Level Heavenly Deities they led. Jin Kong asked in a low voice. “My lord, what should we…”
“You all are to stay here. I will go and break the formation array!”
Like a meteorite, Qiuzhong Fu smashed into the great formation array. As a level four Trapping Array, although it only appeared to have a circumference of several hundred meters from the outside, it actually possessed greater than ten thousand meters circumference on the inside.
This was similar to the Bewitching God Temple.
“Not good.” Sensing that Qiuzhong Fu had charged into his formation array, Qin Yu had a bitter smile on his face. “In order to kill me, this Qiuzhong Fu is actually willing to do such complicated things. There’s nothing I can do about it either.”
Qin Yu was able to anticipate what Qiuzhong Fu planned to do.
This Qiuzhong Fu was going to use his ‘Spatial Domain’ to search whether Qin Yu was in a region of space. If Qin Yu was not in that region of space, then Qiuzhong Fu would directly use his Spatial Destruction to destroy that region of space.
The area Spatial Destruction could destroy was generally not great. However, when inspecting the great formation array from within, one must inspect a very large area. To break the formation array or coincidentally destroy a formation foundation was a very complicated process.
“Buzz~~” “Buzz~~” “Buzz~~” “Buzz~~” …
The sound of space being destroyed continually echoed out. Without stopping, that Qiuzhong Fu was destroying a small region of space after another. As many little things adds up to a great amount, he ultimately succeeded.
“It had been destroyed by a High Level Heavenly Deity this easily? Is there really nothing that could truly trap a High Level Heavenly Deity?” Qin Yu felt hatred in his heart.
Suddenly, the level eight formation array appeared in Qin Yu’s mind.
“That’s right, that level eight formation array is capable of binding High Level Heavenly Deities. Even High Level Heavenly Deities cannot escape it. Unfortunately, I am unable to deploy that…”
Qin Yu was suddenly startled.
He had a familiar feeling regarding the level eight formation array the entire time. However, he was unable to think of why it was so familiar. After thinking about it for so long, Qin Yu finally remembered at this moment.
“Splitting the Heaven and Earth apart. That’s right. It was splitting the Heaven and Earth apart!”
[TL: remember, splitting the heaven and earth apart refers to the creation myth of pangu and his Universe world.]
Qin Yu suddenly closed his eyes. At this moment, he began to feel the ancient aura like that of the flour paste space. The profound sensation that he had when he split the Heaven and Earth apart to create the Universal World once again descended upon him.
Why did he have such a familiar sensation regarding this level eight formation array?
That was because the principle behind this level eight formation array was already relatively approaching the principle behind the Universal World that was formed through splitting the Heaven and Earth apart. During the time when he created the Universal World, Qin Yu merely knew about what how to do it but not what the principle behind it was.
Although he was unable to understand the principle, he remembered the profound sensation.
At this moment, after he entered that sort of profound state, the process of the creation of the Universal World emerged in Qin Yu’s mind.
The peak of formation arrays was merely creating a space through the comprehension of the spatial laws.
Although Qin Yu had not comprehended the spatial laws, he had created his own Universal World. Thus, he naturally understood the spatial laws of the Universal World!
“So this was the case!”
A smile appeared on Qin Yu’s face. He lightly streaked his hand across the air. Several rays of light flew out from Qin Yu’s hand. Like meteors, they fell to various locations surrounding Mount Bewitch You.
“Formation array ‘Universe,’ form!”
Qin Yu lightly shouted.
In merely an instant, everyone in the surrounding several thousand miles, including even Qiuzhong Fu who had just broke the level four formation array, felt that their sky and earth was being turned upside down. The scenes before them all ceased to exist. Instead, what appeared in their surroundings was a vast and boundless land.
