Translated by: Pumpkin

At the moment when the Cosmos was formed, Qin Yu already knew that he was able to use the most basic portion of the ‘temporal law.’ If he were to forcefully try to use temporal law that surpassed the limit that which this Cosmos could bear, then it might only lead to the cave-in of the entire Cosmos.
“This New Cosmos is still in its developmental stage. Currently, all I can use is ‘Time Acceleration.’ Furthermore, I can only accelerate time to around two thousand times.” Regarding this, Qin Yu was still very satisfied.
After all, even the third layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm was only able to speed up time by a thousand times.
Furthermore, Qin Yu was able clearly sense that the limit of his Time Acceleration was increasing as the New Cosmos continued to expand. He believed that should the New Cosmos reach a certain level, a Time Acceleration by the millions would also be possible.
Qin Yu also knew that the ‘Time Acceleration’ was merely the first stage of the temporal law.
When the Universal World shattered and formed the new Cosmos, the general understanding of the temporal law had entered Qin Yu’s mind.
The temporal law was separated into three levels.
The first level, Time Acceleration, was the most elementary level. However, even in the Divine Realm, the majority of the Godkings were struggling within this level. There were some Godkings that had yet to even reach this first level.
Although there are many Godkings struggling in the first level of the temporal law, there are also differences between them. The weaker ones were only able to accelerate the time by ten times. The stronger ones were able to accelerate the time by a thousand times, ten thousand times or even more.
The second level, Time Stop!
This level was much more scary. If a Godking was able to comprehend the ‘Time Stop,’ then ordinary Godkings could only allow themselves to be trampled upon by him or her. It was only possible for them to get rid of the Time Stop through the use of some extremely powerful Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
A Godking that had reached this level would be the strongest Godking in the Divine Realm.
The third level, Time Reversal.
Once one comprehended the Time Reversal, that signified one as having completely comprehended the entire Temporal Law. At this moment, this Godking would have reached the Exalted Celestial level.
Once one used Time Reversal, one was able to make a powerful Godking return back to the time when they were small and weak. This was why Exalted Celestials were so powerful.
New Purple Mystic Star. The sky was covered with stars. Qin Yu was standing on top of the new East Hazy Mountain.
“What level of the temporal law has Uncle Lan reached?” Qin Yu was thinking out loud. Qin Yu had long since begun considering Uncle Lan as his own relative, his own senior. He also hoped that Uncle Lan was able to achieve a higher level of accomplishment.
Qin Yu was not very certain about the differences of strength between the Godkings of the Divine Realm.
However, he understood one thing. The Godkings that controlled the Spatial Law, each and every one of them were able to defeat him.
Qin Yu turned around and looked to his side. A person suddenly appeared beside him. With a cyan gown and long cyan hair, it was Qin Yu’s Magnificent Lotus Clone.
“From today on, you shall stay here and train. In here, the flow of time can reach the limit and will be much more efficient compared to the Jiang Lan Realm.” Said Qin Yu with a slight smile on his face.
“Yes, True Body.”
The Magnificent Lotus Clone bowed to Qin Yu. It then sat down in a cross-legged position and started training quietly.
“The flow of time has increased by another fold.” Qin Yu lightly smiled. The limit of the flow of time had once again increased. As the New Cosmos continued to expand, the flow of time would continue to increase.
His own cultivation speed would also become faster and faster.
With an intention of Qin Yu’s mind.
The large lump of Dark and Yellow Energy appeared beside Qin Yu. The Divine Spear Waning Snow was still floating within the Dark and Yellow Energy. After the Universal World shattered, everything within the Universal World had arrived at this New Cosmos.
“Although the Dark and Yellow Energy is unable to enter the Jiang Lan Realm, I am still able to increase the speed at which the Divine Spear Waning Snow absorbs the Dark and Yellow Energy by several thousand times in the New Cosmos.”
After that, Qin Yu also sat down in a cross-legged position and started quietly train.
In the Divine Realm’s Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City, outside of the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace’s palace entrance.
At this moment, a handsome silver haired and white clothed youth was standing outside of the palace entrance. This handsome silver haired youth did not say a single word, he merely continued to stand outside the palace gates.
From afar, an equally handsome green gowned youth walked over. As this green gowned youth’s eyes blinked, his pupils would occasionally flicker like lightning. This man was precisely Qin Yu’s old acquaintance, Zhou Xian.
“Duanmu Yu, you’re also here?” Zhou Xian saw Duanmu Yu who stood outside of the palace entrance, he was unable to refrain from calling him out with a frown on his face.
At this moment, the handsome white gowned and silver haired youth also turned around and took a glance at Zhou Xian. He slightly smiled and said. “Brother Zhou, are you implying that while you are permitted to come, I, on the other hand, am not?”
Zhou Xian’s eyes slightly narrowed. Electric snakes were flickering through his surroundings.
Zhou Xian was the Divine Realm’s Eight Great Sacred Lands’ Northwestern Region’s Thunder Punishment City’s prince. Of the Eight Great Sacred Lands of the Divine Realm, only the Thunder Punishment City did not possess Palace Masters. As Zhou Xian was a High Level Heavenly Deity, his status was extremely high and second only to the Godkings of the Thunder Punishment City.
However, Zhou Xian knew that that Duanmu Yu who stood a small distance from him was also no ordinary person.
Duanmu Yu was the Divine Realm’s Eight Great Sacred Lands’ Utmost Southern Region’s Light Lens City’s prince. In terms of strength, he too was a High Level Heavenly Deity. Furthermore, he was also the Light Lens City’s Bright Jade Palace’s Palace Master. His status was also extremely high.
This Duanmu Yu was a love rival to Zhou Xian in trying to marry Li’er.
Zhou Xian confronted Duanmu Yu’s gaze. He finally smiled and said. “Of course Brother Duanmu could come. Merely, I am confused as to why you are outside of the gates and haven’t gone inside?”
At this moment, the guard of the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace spoke. “Lord Zhou Xian, His Majesty the Sage Emperor has ordered, that regardless of who it might be, no one is allowed to enter the Sage Emperor’s Palace right now. Lord Zhou Xian can wait here until His Majesty Sage Emperor allows the two Lords to enter. Lord Zhou Xian can also leave and come again later.”
Only now did Zhou Xian understood why Duanmu Yu was standing outside. So it was actually the Sage Emperor’s order.
Duanmu Yu took a glance at Zhou Xian. “Brother Zhou, are you planning to wait here or return back?”
Zhou Xian slightly smiled. He shot a glance at Duanmu Yu. He then walked to the outside of the entrance and stood next to Duanmu Yu. “Brother Duanmu is able to wait, I too naturally will be able to wait.”
Duanmu Yu lightly laughed. He then no longer said anything. As for Zhou Xian, he also stopped talking. The two people continued to quietly stand there and wait.
Inside a side hall of the Utmost North Sage Emperor’s Palace. Outside the side hall was complete silence. However, the noise of a fierce quarrel filled the side hall.
“Second brother, can you stop being so stubborn? While you are extremely fond of Li’er, am I not also extremely fond of Li’er? She is a girl, is there something wrong with her marrying someone? All these people that want to marry her, aren’t they all worthy of her hand in marriage? Second brother, why are you always making this matter difficult for me?” Said the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan angrily.
Zhou Xian, Duanmu Yu and many other people had already stayed in the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City for many years. The reason why they stayed there was precisely for Li’er’s hand in marriage.
The Utmost North Emperor was completely willing to marry off his daughter.
He was totally able to use this marriage to obtain many things beneficial to the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City. However, this matter was completely obstructed by his second brother Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan’s expression was cold and indifferent. He looked at the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan. “Big brother, I have already said this before. Li’er marriage requires her willing consent. Although you have already announced the so called ‘groom search’ and cannot recant your words, the date of the ‘groom search’ is something that requires Li’er to decide for herself.”
Jiang Fan had already announced the news of his daughter searching for a groom to the world.
As the Utmost North Sage Emperor, he naturally couldn’t go back on his words.
Merely, they had yet to decide the date of the groom search. This had led to Zhou Xian and a large group of other suitors to arrive to the Floating Snow City and continue to wait. After all, to Heavenly Deities, time was not something of much significance. They were also not anxious. Instead, each and every one of them started to bribe and befriend people of the Floating Snow City. They were all trying their best to construct a situation that would be advantageous to them.
Jiang Fan looked to Jiang Lan furiously.
As for Jiang Lan, he had an indifferent expression on his face.
“Big brother, back then, didn’t you restrain me through the use of the Clan Protection Treasure? If you have the ability, then restrain me once more. Last time, because of the interest of the Eight Great Divine Families, I did not resist. This time, for Li’er, even if you try using the Clan Protection Treasure to restrain me, I will still try and see if I can contend against it!” Jiang Lan shot a cold and indifferent glance at Jiang Fan.
The Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan was startled. His expression had turned complex.
Back then, the Eight Great Divine Families had joined hands and killed the Godking of Life Zuo Qiumei. This matter involved truly too many reasons. Not only was it due to the remarkable ability that the Godking of Life possessed, it was also related to the Asura Godking of the Asura Sea.
However, regardless of what, Jiang Lan and Zuo Qiumei loved one another. He, the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan, had tried to persuade Jiang Lan through the virtuous cause of the Eight Great Divine Families and then restrained him through the use of the Clan Protection Treasure. Because of this, Jiang Fan had felt guilty toward his second brother the entire time.
After all, ever since that day, his second brother that originally possessed a very good relationship with him had turned cold and detached.
Jiang Fan took a breath of air. His brows slightly frowned.
“Second brother, what happened back then perhaps harmed you rather greatly. However, that matter was a joint decision by the Eight Great Divine Families. You too are a member of the Eight Great Divine Families!”
Jiang Lan’s eyes had a trace of pain. “That’s right, I am a member of the Eight Great Divine Families. Thus, I did not resist being restrained. However… I should’ve chosen to die together with her.” Jiang Lan’s eyes were filled with grief.
Suddenly, Jiang Lan’s gaze have turned sharp. “Big brother, Li’er has absorbed a drop of A’mei’s Tear of Life. I, even if I die, I will not allow others to force Li’er into doing anything!”
Even if he were to die, he would still not allow it!
The Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan was slightly trembling.
The resolution of his second brother Jiang Lan was truly too huge.
“I already cannot delay this public groom search anymore. The other Godkings have also talked about this with me. Regardless of what, we cannot delay this any longer.” Said Jiang Fan extremely sincerely.
Jiang Lan coldly humphed and said. “Unless, you want to fight against me for real, you can forget about forcing Li’er!”
Jiang Lan glanced at his older brother. “Even if we were to fight for real, it would still be hard to tell who would live and who would die.” After he finished saying that, Jiang Lan disappeared.
Jiang Fan was startled. He then smiled bitterly.
Back then, when those many outstanding men came to search for his daughter’s hand in marriage, Jiang Fan was extremely happy. He even declared a public groom search. However, who would’ve expect that after he declared a public groom search, he ended up delaying the date of the groom search for such a long time.
Li’er was simply unable to hinder the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan. The person who have been hindering him was his second brother Jiang Lan.
“Fight against you? Indeed, even if I utilize the Clan Protection Treasure, it is still very hard to tell whether I would be able to defeat you or not.” Jiang Fan did not know what to do.
Furthermore, regardless of what, Jiang Fan would not kill Jiang Lan. After all, Jiang Lan was one of the Three Great Godkings of the Flowing Snow City. If he were to kill Jiang Lan, wouldn’t this be the same as cutting off his own arm?
Inside the Wood Mansion of the Floating Snow City.
Jiang Lan was looking at Li’er residence from afar. He lowly sighed. Whenever he confronted his big brother, Jiang Lan would always feel extremely agitated.
“I must continue to delay. I must continue to delay until Little Yu possesses sufficient strength and status.” Jiang Lan sighed in a low voice. However, once he thought of Qin Yu, a slight smile appeared on his face.
Jiang Lan was extremely knowledgeable of Qin Yu’s astonishing progress. “Never had I anticipated that a little boy from the Mortal Realm would end up becoming Mount Dazzling Gold’s Misty Mystic Palace’s Palace Master.”
Inside the Cosmos that Qin Yu had created.
The grass and weeds that Qin Yu sat on had already withered and regrown over twenty times. Finally, Qin Yu’s body started giving off a trace of jade green light.
Inside Qin Yu’s mind.
Like waves, numerous rays of Heavenly Divine Energy were intertwining with one another. Following an intense rotation, a jade green golden pellet was born in the center of the Heavenly Divine Energy. That jade green Heavenly Divine Energy rushed into the jade green golden pellet and was completely engulfed by it.
Jade Blood Golden Pellet formation!
Just like that, the Jade Blood Golden Pellet floated to Qin Yu’s Nascent Soul’s palms.
“My Divine Energy has finally completely transformed into Heavenly Divine Energy and formed a Jade Blood Golden Pellet. Now, I should be able to open the third layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm.” Qin Yu opened his eyes.
Qin Yu’s eyes had a pleasantly surprised expression.
He looked at the Magnificent Lotus Clone beside him and then looked at the Divine Spear Waning Snow that had been absorbing the the Dark and Yellow Energy the entire time. Qin Yu slightly smiled and then disappeared.
Qin Yu appeared in the Misty Mystic Palace. He had appeared in the main hall of his residence.
“Once I open the third layer of the Jiang Lan Realm, I’ll be able to see Li’er.” Qin Yu held the little green pagoda in his hand. However, his hands were slightly shivering.
An excitement coming from the bottom of his heart.
Numerous rays of Heavenly Divine Energy poured into the Jiang Lan Realm. Qin Yu’s hand was slightly shivering the entire time. Finally… the entire little green pagoda started shining brightly.
The third layer of the Jiang Lan Realm had been opened!
Qin Yu’s eyes were radiating a joyous light.
The instant the third layer space of the Jiang Lan Realm was opened, Jiang Lan, who was currently inside the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City’s Wood Mansion, was jolted. He then also displayed a joyous expression in his eyes.
After that, Jiang Lan disappeared from the Floating Snow City.
[TL: IET initially referred to the eight sage emperor’s clans as the Eight Great Families. Now however he changed them to the Eight Great Divine Clans. For consistency’s sake, I decided to change them to Eight Great Divine Families. Technically, it would also work since clan = family. IET and his inconsistency in the wordings…]
