“No, it’s not dark red colored eyes, instead, it’s…” Only after Qin Yu carefully inspected the purple gowned man before him did he discover that the man’s eyes were radiating a faint red light.
The purple gowned man’s eyes were actually black colored. However, as the purple gowned man looked to Qin Yu, his eyes were radiating a faint red light.
Because of this, when Qin Yu first saw the purple gowned man, he had thought that his eyes were dark red colored.
“Radiating a red light?” Qin Yu was startled. Qin Yu knew very many people. However, very few of the people that he knew had eyes that radiates a red light. “Fei Fei, that’s right, Fei Fei!”
Hou Fei’s true form was that of a Fiery Eyed Water Ape. When he carefully inspected something, his originally black eyes would radiate a faint red light. It was very similar to this purple gowned man before him.
The purple gowned man’s eyes were able to radiate a red light; could he be a Fiery Eyed Water Ape? Or perhaps did he train in some sort of special martial technique?
It was uncourteous for Qin Yu to ask. That was because the strength of the man before him was something that he could not see through at all. Qin Yu was currently a High Level Heavenly Deity, someone that he could not see through… it meant that the person was at the very least a Godking.
“This junior is Qin Yu. Is senior perhaps Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial?” Qin Yu bowed respectfully.
The corner of the purple gown man’s mouth was slightly raised. His gaze was fixed upon Qin Yu. “Qin Yu? Mn, not bad. It is as you imagined, I am the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.”
“Come, let’s sit and chat.” This Unfettered Exalted Celestial was smiling. Qin Yu was unable to sense the slightest trace of oppression from him. It was as if this purple gowned man. It was like the purple gowned man was an ordinary mortal.
However, mortals would not be like the purple gowned man whom Qin Yu couldn’t see through.
At this moment, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial had already taken a seat. He took a glance at Qin Yu, pointed to the seat next to him and said with a light smile. “Come, sit.”
“Yes.” Qin Yu immediately sat down on the seat.
“You do not have to be overly cautious. You can just imagine that you’re chatting with your own clan’s senior.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial was able to sense Qin Yu was overly cautious.
Do not be overly cautious?
Qin Yu felt bitter in his heart. Heavens, this man before him was an Exalted Celestial! Even the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had never once met an Exalted Celestial.
When the Unfettered Exalted Celestial told Qin Yu to relax, it only caused Qin Yu to feel even less relaxed.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial nodded and said while smiling. “You can be considered pretty decent. Before me, at the very least, you managed to accomplish an undisturbed appearance. Those Eight Great Sage Emperors, they were unable to even accomplish an undisturbed appearance before me.”
Qin Yu was unable to refrain his surprise.
Eight Great Sage Emperors?
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial continued while smiling. “This time, the most important reason why I decided to see you was because you’ve managed to step onto the ninety ninth step of the Heaven Connecting Flight of Steps! According to the rules set up by us, since you’ve managed to summit the Heaven Connecting Flight of Steps, one of us Three Great Exalted Celestials would have to come see you. Thus, I’ve come to see you.”
Qin Yu could only let himself smile.
At this moment, he didn’t know what to say. He was unsure about what to say, and how to put it.
“Qin Yu, the matter regarding the groom search, because my Eldest Martial Brother was relatively interested in it, my Second Elder Martial Brother and I also grew interested in it.” As the Unfettered Exalted Celestial said this, Qin Yu’s smile had come to a stop.
Qin Yu was able to guess that the people that the Unfettered Exalted Celestial called ‘Eldest Marital Brother’ and ‘Second Elder Martial Brother’ could only be the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial and the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial.
Qin Yu’s heart started to move: ‘This Unfettered Exalted Celestial said that the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was relatively interested in the groom search which caused him and the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial to become interested in it too. Just from this, one could tell that the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial possessed a much higher status. Merely… why is the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial interested in the groom search?’
Qin Yu was unable to understand why.
Perhaps Li’er’s public groom search would be very influential to the Divine Realm, but why would that ‘Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial’ possibly be interested in it?
“I am thinking, why was my Eldest Martial Brother interested in the groom search?” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial started to frown. “Unfortunately, I am unable to understand why.”
Qin Yu looked at this Unfettered Exalted Celestial before him.
Qin Yu knew that the Unfettered Exalted Celestial was the person who managed to capture the opportunity and become the new Exalted Celestial in that war six quadrillion years ago.
“When I was following my Eldest Martial Brother and also started paying attention to this groom search, I came to take note of you.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial smiled as he looked to Qin Yu. “When I took note of you, I naturally also came to notice your two brothers, that Hou Fei and Hei Yu.”
Qin Yu was completely focused. He was a bit worried: ‘Why was this Unfettered Exalted Celestial mentioning Fei Fei and Xiao Hei?’
“Qin Yu, although your cultivation speed is fast, you could also be considered as someone who has gone through a lot of ups and downs. Thus, your cultivation speed could still be considered as being within logic. However, there was a matter that I have been confused. That brother of yours, Hei Yu, he seems to have some comprehension of the Temporal Laws, right?” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial frowned.
Qin Yu’s heart jumped.
Hei Yu’s ‘Flowing Light Spear Path’ was precisely an usage of the temporal laws.
“According to reason, one cannot comprehend the temporal laws without reaching the Godking stage. I had also once asked my Eldest Martial Brother about this matter. The response from my Eldest Martial Brother has also confused me for some time. Haha, I’ve spoken too much, I’ve spoken too much.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial smiled as he said that.
Eldest Martial Brother’s response?
Qin Yu became curious. How exactly did the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial reply?
Qin Yu knew that with the remarkable abilities of the Exalted Celestials, the various movements that he and his brothers had were likely all within the knowledge of the Exalted Celestials.
“Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial.” Qin Yu opened his mouth.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial saw that Qin Yu had spoken, his eyes shined. “What is it?”
What Qin Yu wanted the most was the gift bestowed by the Exalted Celestial. The purpose in his meeting with the Unfettered Exalted Celestial was precisely this. However, even though the Unfettered Exalted Celestial said a whole bunch of stuff to him, he did not mention anything regarding the gift. Qin Yu had also started to grow anxious.
If he doesn’t get a gift, how shall he deal with the groom search?
Even though he saw an Exalted Celestial, if he didn’t get a gift, he would still hold no qualification to compete for the first chosen candidate spot against Zhou Xian.
However, could Qin Yu personally mention about wanting a gift?
“Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial, I, mn, I am curious about what senior’s Eldest Martial Brother had said? I am also baffled as to how Xiao Hei is capable of comprehending a portion of the temporal laws.” Qin Yu shifted the subject.
He was incapable of asking for a gift.
A trace of a smile flashed through the Unfettered Exalted Celestial’s eyes. As an Exalted Celestial, how could he possibly not know what Qin Yu was thinking?
However, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial still kept his deadpan expression as he said. “Ah? What my Eldest Martial Brother said? When my Second Elder Brother and I asked my Eldest Martial Brother about this matter, he said… ‘There must be a reason for something to exist. There is no need to ask about it nor is there a need to investigate.’”
“There must be a reason for something to exist.” Qin Yu was surprised from the reaction of that ‘Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial.’
Soon after, Qin Yu became curious.
Why did the Unfettered Exalted Celestial and the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial go and inquire the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial the moment they became confused?
Qin Yu lowered his head and exhaled a mouthful of air. He cast away the confusion he had in his mind. What Qin Yu was worried about the most right now was the gift, the gift bestowed by the Exalted Celestials!
Qin Yu raised his head and looked at the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial still had a light smile on his face. Seeing Qin Yu’s current expression, he even displayed a confused expression to Qin Yu. It was like he was asking ‘what’s the matter?’
However, could Qin Yu possibly ask for a gift?
“Haha…” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial suddenly started laughing. “Truly amusing. Qin Yu, if there was a mirror, you should have a look at your current facial expression and eye expression, it is truly amusing. Haha…”
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial suddenly started to hold his belly as he laughed out loud. His laughter was extremely exaggerated.
“Come, check it out for yourself.”
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial waved his hand. Numerous water droplets were gathered together. They formed a mirror. The mirror contained the expressions that Qin Yu had earlier.
Nervousness, anticipation, hesitation, anxiety…
Those gaze, those facial expressions, they were indeed marvelous.
“Well then, I won’t tease you anymore. I also know what you all who are participating in the groom search came here for…” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial flipped his hand. A bronze colored gourd appeared on his palm.
Qin Yu’s gaze was immediately fixed upon that gourd.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial sighed. “Sigh, although we are Exalted Celestials, but… these Grandmist Spiritual Treasures are items that were birthed by the world. We too only possess a very small number of them. This ‘Jade Spring Gourd’ is a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure that I managed to accidentally discover as I wandered the Cosmos. You can have it.”
That Jade Spring Gourd started floating from the Unfettered Exalted Celestial’s hand. It directly floated to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu received the Jade Spring Gourd and immediately dripped a drop of blood on it. To drip one’s blood on it was merely the first step to refining a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. However, once he dripped blood on it, he would at very least be in control of the Jade Spring Gourd.
“The Jade Spring Gourd, it is capable of releasing the Jade Spring Binding, attack…” Qin Yu immediately understood the general function of the Jade Spring Gourd. At the same time, he also had a rough evaluation of the Jade Spring Gourd.
This Jade Spring Gourd was a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
“To be able to bestow me a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, that is already very good.” Qin Yu was very content. That was because he knew… that first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were extremely rare in the entire Divine Realm.
The majority of the Godkings in the Divine Realm used second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures as their weapons.
The Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had only become known as the Craftsman God because he managed to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. From this, one could tell how rare the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures were.
“Well then, I suspect you’re perfectly content now that you’ve obtained this Jade Spring Gourd, right?” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial said with a light smile. “You can go out now.”
Qin Yu flipped his hand and retrieved the Jade Spring Gourd. He then bowed and said thankfully. “Thank you Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial.”
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial waved his hand and said. “You can go.”
Qin Yu immediately bowed once more. He then turned around and left. However, when he reached the entrance of the garden, that Unfettered Exalted Celestial spoke. “Qin Yu, before you leave, let me inform you about another thing.”
Qin Yu immediately stopped. He turned around and looked at the Unfettered Exalted Celestial. “Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial, please.”
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial smiled and said. “I told you earlier that my Eldest Martial Brother was very interested in this groom search. Thus… this time around, not only my Second Elder Martial Brother and I, even my Eldest Martial Brother is on one of the islands surrounding the Mountain Sea Palace.”
“Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial is on one of Mountain Sea Palace’s surrounding island?” Qin Yu was greatly startled.
“Of course, as my Eldest Martial Brother is my Eldest Martial Brother, if he wants to see you, you’ll naturally know about it. If he doesn’t wish to see you, then I reckon that even if you search all of the three thousand plus islands in the surroundings, you’d still be unable to find him.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial smiled and said. “The reason why I told you this was to let you know to not hurry back and continue to stay here. Perhaps you might be able to encounter the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial. If you were to be able to encounter him… then you’ll be extremely lucky. My Eldest Martial Brother is not poor like me and my Second Elder Martial Brother.”
Qin Yu didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
However, Qin Yu was able to tell how lucky and wonderful of a thing it would be if one were able to encounter the mysterious Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial. That Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial ought to have a lot more treasures than the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial and the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.
“No wonder that Zhou Xian still remained here even after obtaining a gift from the Thunder Punishment Godking.” Qin Yu suddenly realized.
“Thank you Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial for you guidance.” Qin Yu said thankfully.
The Unfettered Exalted Celestial slightly smiled. He then disappeared from the garden.
Qin Yu walked out from the Unfettered Palace. He looked down underneath. There was current a group of people discussing among each other in the surrounding of the Mountain Sea Palace. When Qin Yu walked out, this group of people all cast their gazes toward Qin Yu.
After walking down the flight of steps, Qin Yu walked over to Duanmu Yu and them.
“Brother Qin Yu, congratulations, congratulations.” Kuiyin Hou said with a loud laughter. Duanmu Yu and Shentu Fan were also looking at Qin Yu with smiles on their faces. That Duanmu Yu asked with a slight curiosity. “Brother Qin Yu, did you manage to obtain a gift bestowed by the Exalted Celestial after meeting the Unfettered Exalted Celestial?”
Immediately, the surrounding people’s ears all perked up.
Zhou Xian was even staring at Qin Yu with a burning gaze.
Qin Yu slightly smiled. He flipped his hand and took out the bronze gourd. The dozen plus people’s gaze were all focused on this bronze gourd.
Grandmist Spiritual Treasures possessed an aura specific to Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Furthermore, weapons which were crafted rarely would take on the appearance of a gourd. Gourds, they are generally birthed by the world.
Treasures that were birthed by the world were generally Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
Duanmu Yu and them who possessed great eyesight had already made a guess in their mind. Zhou Xian’s expression had grown even more ugly.
“Brother Qin Yu, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial also bestowed you with a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?” Kuiyin Hou exclaimed.
“Precisely.” Qin Yu nodded and said.
