On the day after the banquet, Qin Yu brought Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu and arrived at the Misty Mystic Palace.
In the Imperial City, which was located in the center of the Dazzling Gold City, there were five palaces. One was the Utmost East Sage Emperor’s Palace. The other four were the Four Great Palaces. The Misty Mystic Palace that Qin Yu had was also the largest palace among the four.
“This Misty Mystic Palace is truly large.” Said Qin Yu with a smile as he looked to the Misty Mystic Palace before him.
Qiuzhong Fu said respectfully. “Master, the Misty Mystic Palace and the other Three Great Palace are the commanders of the Heavenly Deity Army. There are also elite Heavenly Deity mid squadrons stationed here. Thus, naturally the Misty Mystic Palace would be large.”
“Elite Heavenly Deity mid squadrons?” Qin Yu was confused.
After the banquet, the Utmost East Sage Emperor had only called Qin Yu and said some kind words of congratulations to him and presented him the Misty Mystic Palace’s Palace Master’s Title Plate. As for the other trivial matters, he did not mention them.
And at this moment, the entrance guards of the Misty Mystic Palace had noticed Qin Yu. This guard had already seen Qin Yu before at the martial practice grounds. Thus, he instantly recognized Qin Yu.
“Quickly, quickly go and report to the large squadron captain.” Said that guard to another guard. He then started to lightly run to Qin Yu. He got down on one knee and said respectfully. “Liu Rufeng of the Misty Mystic Palace’s number one elite mid squadron pays his respect to Lord Palace Master.”
Qin Yu lightly nodded. “You can rise.”
However, Qin Yu started to ponder in his heart. “Misty Mystic Palace’s number one elite mid squadron? It seemed like there ought to be many people and more than a single mid squadron.” Qin Yu asked directly. “How many elite mid squadrons are there in the Misty Mystic Palace currently?”
That guard said respectfully. “The Heavenly Deity Army has nine large squadrons. The first large squadron and the second large squadron belong to the Misty Mystic Palace. The two large squadron captains have respectively dispatched two elite mid squadrons to come and await for Your Lordship Palace Master to command. The two large squadron captains have also already arrived and are waiting for Lord Palace Master.”
Respectively dispatched two elite mid squadrons. In other words, there were a total of four elite mid squadrons.
Right after the guard Liu Rufeng finished saying those words, a man and a woman walked out from the Misty Mystic Palace’s entrance. Behind the man and woman were four more people. These four people were two males and two females.
“Princess Jing?” Qin Yu was surprised to see that the woman in the front was actually Huangfu Jing.
Huangfu Jing walked over with a smile on her face. “Qin Yu, ah, I should address you as Lord Palace Master. You didn’t expect this right? I am the large squadron captain of the second Heavenly Deity large squadron. I am also currently a direct subordinate underneath you.”
As for the man beside Huangfu Jing, he was a robust man with a head full of golden lion like hair.
“This subordinate is the large squadron captain of the first Heavenly Deity large squadron, Ying Qiu. Pays his respect to Lord Palace Master!” Said that robust man respectfully as he bowed.
“Your surname is Ying?” Qin Yu said in surprise.
The Qin Clan of that Qin Yu was from, back during the generation of the Qin Shihuang, their clan name was actually Ying. In that case, this Ying Qiu could be said as being from the same clan as Qin Yu. This had also caused Qin Yu to have a amiable feeling toward this Ying Qiu.
“Ying Qiu, Ying Qiu, haha, truly a good name.” Said Qin Yu while smiling. This caused Ying Qiu to be completely confused.
Huangfu Jing’s nose wrinkled. She humphed and said. “Lord Palace Master, is the name Ying Qiu something rejoicing?”
“If we were to mention it, then this Ying Qiu could be considered as being from the same clan as me. Well then, we shouldn’t continue to stand at the entrance the entire time. Let’s go in and then speak.” Qin Yu entered into the Misty Mystic Palace with a smile on his face.
After Qin Yu checked into the Misty Mystic Palace, he soon brought the over a hundred servants of his from the Flowing Cloud Mansion to the Misty Mystic Palace. At the same time, he also dispatched an elite mid squadron from the Misty Mystic Palace to the Flowing Cloud Mansion.
Ever since the day he checked into the Misty Mystic Palace, in the future, Qin Yu would usually end up staying in the Misty Mystic Palace.
As Qin Yu stayed in the Misty Mystic Palace and had just started his peaceful life, Wu Lan, Hong Yu, Lu Shui and Wu He from the Jiang Lan Realm had a matter to trouble Qin Yu.
Misty Mystic Palace. Wind Listening Hall.
Qin Yu sat in the master’s seat. Standing on his two sides were Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu. Tan Jiu and three other Heavenly Deities were standing underneath.
“Tan Jiu, I have an important matter that I want you to take care of. The three Low Level Heavenly Deities behind you will listen to your orders and dispatchment.” Qin Yu said directly.
The current Tan Jiu was extremely respectful toward Qin Yu.
After the battle last time, Qin Yu had already bestowed the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, the enormous heavy sword, to Tan Jiu. After obtaining this High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact, Tan Jiu’s might had increased greatly. It could now be said that there was barely anyone at the Mid Level Heavenly Deity stage that could match against him.
Even High Level Heavenly Deities, when confronted with Tan Jiu, would not dare to look down upon him. After all, if Tan Jiu’s nine clones were to all attack frantically together, then even if a High Level Heavenly were able to destroy the space and a clone along with it, they would not be able to destroy the space and kill all nine clones at the same time.
Tan Jiu’s others clones would have sufficient time to use the High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact and teach the High Level Heavenly Deity a bitter lesson. As Tan Jiu’s strength had increased greatly and, on top of that, Qin Yu currently possessed the high status of a Palace Master, Tan Jiu naturally became even more respectful of Qin Yu.
“Please go ahead and give me the order, master. This subordinate will definitely use all his strength to accomplish the mission.” Said Tan Jiu respectfully.
Qin Yu slightly nodded and then said. “I have four demon beasts. All four of them are about to undergo their Divine Tribulations. Merely, Mount Dazzling Gold does not allow for ordinary Deities, much less allowing demon beasts to undergo their Divine Tribulations. The dates of their tribulations are not far from now. I plan to have the four of you take care of the four demon beasts and inform me about it after they finished their Divine Tribulations.”
Hearing that it was such a simple mission, Tan Jiu immediately answered. “Yes, master.”
“Good. Then I shall first bring you all out of the Dazzling Gold City.” Qin Yu directly stood up. He then turned around and said to Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu. “Uncle Fu, Qiuzhong, the two of you can stay in the Misty Mystic Palace and wait for my return.”
The two accepted the order.
After that, Qin Yu brought Tan Jiu and the other three Heavenly Deities and left the Misty Mystic Palace. Qin Yu had no other choice but to go personally. Since Wu Lan and them were staying in the Jiang Lan Realm, he couldn’t just let them out right away.
Furthermore, he also could not give Tan Jiu the Jiang Lan Realm. Thus, he had no choice but to go personally.
The Mount Dazzling Gold had a very low restriction on the freedom of the Heavenly Deities on it. For ordinary Heavenly Deities, they would be able to leave with the approval of their superior military officers. For High Level Heavenly Deities or the Four Palace Masters like Qin Yu, they were able to go out whenever they wished.
Upon seeing Qin Yu, the guards outside of the Dazzling Gold City immediately let him pass. The battle at the martial practice grounds had caused practically everyone in the Dazzling Gold City to know who Qin Yu was.
“It’s Palace Master Qin Yu. Open the city gate.” The guard immediately shouted. As the number of Heavenly Deities who entered and exited the Dazzling Gold City was very low, the city gates were usually closed.
Just like that, Qin Yu and his group of people left the Dazzling Gold City.
After exiting the Dazzling Gold City, Qin Yu and them started flying rapidly. Soon, they passed through the mountain road and then, following the tunnel, exited Mount Dazzling Gold.
Qin Yu and his group of people landed on the ground.
“Wu Lan, Wu He, Hong Yu, Lu Shui, the four of you are to follow Tan Jiu for the time being. After you all successfully pass your Divine Tribulations, I will come and pick you up.” With an intention from Qin Yu.
An enormous Subterranean Cave Dragon appeared.
A Subterranean Cave Dragon’s torso was several hundred meters long. Its slender and sharp tail was over a hundred meters long. The several hundred sharp claws were shining coldly. Its pair of ice-cold eyes were currently staring at Qin Yu. The Subterranean Cave Dragon spoke. “Master, Wu Lan and them are inside my abdomen scale.”
Qin Yu slightly nodded.
Tan Jiu and them were shocked. They never anticipated for the so called demon beast that Qin Yu had to be a monster like the Subterranean Cave Dragon. Although a Subterranean Cave Dragon was a demon beast, it possessed strength close to that of a Low Level Heavenly Deity.
“Tan Jiu, I’ll leave the four of them in your hands.” Qin Yu looked to Tan Jiu while smiling.
“Master can rest assured.” Tan Jiu felt extremely relaxed.
For a king among demon beasts like the Subterranean Cave Dragon, undergoing Divine Tribulation was an extremely simple task. As its strength surpassed that of High Level Deities before even undergoing their Divine Tribulation, the difficulty of its Divine Tribulation was naturally much lower.
“Good. In that case I shall take my leave.” Qin Yu glanced at the Subterranean Cave Dragon. Qin Yu’s Universal World’s Spatial Energy had also discovered, that within the abdomen scale of the Subterranean Cave Dragon, the half a man sized black ant with black light circulating through its surface. That was Wu Lan’s true form, the king among ants, Blackstain Ant.
Qin Yu lifted his gown and flew into the sky. He directly flew toward that enormous Mount Dazzling Gold that covered the sky. In the blink of an eye, Qin Yu had disappeared before Tan Jiu and the others.
Wu Lan had followed Qin Yu since the Mortal Realm. Qin Yu had more feelings toward Wu Lan than Qiuzhong Fu, Tan Jiu and them.
After bringing Wu Lan out of the Mount Dazzling Gold, Qin Yu also took a load off his mind.
After Qin Yu returned to the Imperial City’s Misty Mystic Palace, he proceeded to directly walk toward his own residence.
“Master.” Uncle Fu and Qiuzhong Fu walked toward Qin Yu.
Qin Yu said. “Uncle Fu, from today hence, I plan to enter seclusion training. The seclusion training this time will last all the untill I open the third layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm. Everything regarding the Misty Mystic Palace shall be left in your hand.”
After taking care of the matter regarding Wu Lan and the others, there was nothing else for Qin Yu to do.
Uncle Fu also managed to sense Qin Yu’s determination. He promptly said. “Master can set your mind at ease and train. This old servant will definitely take care of everything regarding the Misty Mystic Palace.” Qiuzhong Fu also bowed alongside Uncle Fu.
Qin Yu lightly nodded. He then walked into his own sleep chamber and then directly entered the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.
Inside the second layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.
Qin Yu was slowly walking on the smooth meadows. On top of the lone mountain far away, Hei Yu was still thrusting his spear unceasingly. The current Hei Yu’s Flowing Light Spear Path was even more vigorous than before. Each and every spear thrust gave Qin Yu a sense of space-time distortion.
“Is this the temporal law? Amazing indeed.” Qin Yu slightly smiled.
Qin Yu casually sat on that gentle and smooth meadows. After closing his eyes, Qin Yu was able to sense the gentle breeze brushing through his face. This caused Qin Yu to involuntarily display a peaceful smile.
Time was flowing past unconsciously. As Qin Yu was sitting there quietly, the Divine Energy within his body was rapidly transforming into Heavenly Divine Energy. Qin Yu knew that even if all his energy managed to transform into Heavenly Divine Energy, he would still have to form a Jade Blood Golden Pellet for it to be successful.
As Qin Yu’s Divine Energy was being transformed, the Universal World that he had created in the flour paste space was also expanding incessantly with an astonishing speed.
The Universal World seemed to be breathing.
With every breath, a huge amount of flour paste energy was sucked in. This caused the Universal World to grow even bigger. The current Universal World was over a hundred thousand times larger than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm!
Too large. However, even though it was this large, the Universal World was still unceasingly expanding with a shocking speed.
The cost of its expansion was the unceasing consumption of the flour paste energy.
When Qin Yu spent over thirty years in the Jiang Lan’s Realm’s second layer space, eighty percent of his Divine Energy had transformed to Heavenly Divine Energy. And at this moment, Qin Yu trembled. The peaceful smile on his face had completely disappeared.
The wind in the Jiang Lan Realm suddenly became swift!
The weather of the Jiang Lan Realm was something that changed according to Qin Yu’s frame of mind.
Qin Yu suddenly opened his eyes. At this moment, Qin Yu’s eyes actually had a nebula spinning, meteor falling, star exploding and all kinds of scenes of the evolution of the cosmos. At the same time… Qin Yu’s body had disappeared into thin air.
Inside the Universal Space.
Qin Yu suddenly appeared in the sky of the Universal World. The current Qin Yu had reached an unprecedented peak mental state. Qin Yu mumbled in a low voice. “Never had I expected that the Universal World would have reached the peak of its growth.”
That’s right. The current Universal World stopped growing. Its surface area was no longer increasing.
Qin Yu suddenly raised his head and looked to the sky.
“If it has truly grown to its limit, then according to the comprehension that I had back then, the next stage is…” A slight smile appeared on Qin Yu’s face. He suddenly raised his right hand and pointed to the sky with his forefinger.
In an instant, the boundless Universal World started trembling. It was like the arrival of the apocalypse on this Universal World that was over a hundred thousand times larger than the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. The ocean waves were surging, the mountains were cracking open, the meadows were instantly engulfed…
“Heaven and Earth, Break! The Universe, Split!”
Qin Yu chanted in a low voice.
In an instant, as if millions upon millions of lightning strikes had descended upon the Universal World, the frightening noise was resonating everywhere. Like a porcelain plate shattering, the azure sky collapsed and fall apart.
Numerous billion mile long enormous cracks had covered the earth.
In Qin Yu’s eyes, the different scenes of the evolution of the cosmos flashed through.
Qin Yu chated in a low voice.
In an instant…
“Boom!” A soul-trembling sound echoed throughout the entire Universal World. The Universal World that had already collapsed to its limit, had completely exploded. The membrane that separated the Universal World and the flour paste space, after being affected by the explosion, was forced apart to all directions. At the same time, even more flour paste energy started to frantically rush into the Universal World.
The shattered sky, earth, and rivers started to absorb the flour paste energy. Some of it turned into planets. Some of it turned into stars. Some of it turned into the boundless outer space. Some of it turned into enormous nebula…
Boundless stars. Vast starry sky.
The Universal World perished. What was created was an enormous Cosmos over ten times larger than the Universal World. As for the creator of this enormous Cosmos, Qin Yu, he was currently standing in the boundless cosmic space.
[TL: Thank god I used cosmos and cosmic space before. Otherwise, I would’ve been royally fucked with the Universe Stage and then another Universe Stage lol. Technically, the Universe Stage is the Qiankun Stage which in turn could mean Heaven and Earth Stage. But Heaven and Earth Stage doesn’t describe the stage properly :\. Perhaps I should’ve use the World Stage. But then it’ll become Worldly World… super weird.]
