“So the mirror mansion itself was the Mirage Spirit Mirror!” Hou Fei gasped in a low voice.
At this moment, Qin Yu, Zhou Xian and them all managed to find the answer. None of them had expected for the mirror mansion itself to be the Mirage Spirit Mirror that they had searched for that long.
“Trying to find a horse while riding a horse, who would’ve expected for such a thing to occur to even me. Merely, this horse camouflaged itself truly well.” Qin Yu smiled a self-mocking smile.
Qin Yu also understood his original suspicions.
Qin Yu had thought that the Godking Yi Feng had some sort of plot when he was using his Divine Awareness to monitor everyone. However, now that it appeared… that this Mirage Spirit Mirror was Yi Feng’s item to begin with.
“That Mirage Spirit Mirror is his. Yet, he told us where to go to find it. What is his intention behind that?” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
Qin Yu cast a glance at the enormous change that had occurred to the bottom of the ocean.
Above Qin Yu and them was an enormous vortex. The vortex was so huge that it had started from the bottom of the ocean and traveled several tens of thousands of miles to reach all the way till the surface of the ocean.
Waves were unceasingly pounding through the entire Southern Boundary Archipelago.
“Mn? What’s happening? Could it be that this is not something that Yi Feng had created? But rather…” Qin Yu suddenly grew confused. After reaching the Godking level, it would not be hard for them to move mountains and oceans.
When Qin Yu saw that the bottom of the ocean was shaking and the water and waves were rolling, he had originally thought that it was Godking Yi Feng who did all this.
“But rather, it was Duanmu Yu who did all this?” Qin Yu’s gaze was completely shifted toward Duanmu Yu.
A moment earlier, Qin Yu had not paid attention to Duanmu Yu. However, now that he had, he was shocked to find out that he was no longer able to sense Duanmu Yu’s soul’s aura.
Duanmu Yu had already fused together with the Divine Realm’s space.
“Spatial Laws, he has completely comprehended the Spatial Laws?” Qin Yu had an completely astonished expression. “Could it be, in this short moment of time, Duanmu Yu managed to achieve a breakthrough through the final obstruction and reach the Godking stage?”
The current Duanmu Yu still had his eyes closed as he stood at the bottom of the ocean. He had an extremely calm and composed expression on his face. There was neither joy nor grief on his face.
After he opened his eyes, his gaze was penetrating like that of ice.
Duanmu Yu looked directly at the Godking Yi Feng who stood above. He then softly said. “Brother Yi Feng, thank you.”
Yi Feng nodded and said with a light laughter. “When Brother Duanmu reached the High Level Heavenly Deity stage, I had only just reached the Low Level Heavenly Deity stage. Brother Duanmu has been trapped in the High Level Heavenly Deity for countless years and today, Brother Duanmu managed to finally break through the final mountain pass because of Brother Duanmu’s own ability. It is not largely related to me.”
Duanmu Yu lightly laughed and said. “Brother Yi Feng, had it not been for your Mirage Spirit Mirror that allowed me to once again experience joy and grief, that allowed me to understand everything, then I reckon that I would never have been able to make this final breakthrough.”
Duanmu Yu had been at the peak of the High Level Heavenly Deity stage for an extremely long time.
He was also the leader of the three Palace Masters, the Palace Master of the Bright Jade Palace of the Utmost Southern Region’s Light Lens City. He was also the first Palace Master of the Bright Jade Palace. In the Light Lens City, he possessed influence comparable to that of his father, the Utmost South Sage Emperor.
[TL: as all palaces were named after the first generation master, this held true for Duanmu Yu too. Yu means Jade. That’s his name. Jade.]
Both his strength and charisma were extremely amazing.
Merely, because he had a lingering concern in his heart the entire time, he had been incapable of freeing himself. Although he was an extremely talented individual, he was still trapped at the peak of the High Level Heavenly Deity stage.
However, once he freed himself from his concern, he immediately reached the Godking level.
Duanmu Yu raised his head. Through the surface of the ocean and the vortex at the bottom of the ocean, he seemed to have seen the endless seven colored auspicious cloud with flickering lightning.
“In the Divine Realm, whenever a new Godking is born, the Eight Great Divine Families’ Grandmist Spiritual Treasures would all start to violently shake and give rise to the change in the Divine Realm’s sky. In the past, I have seen this occur several times. In each time, it signified that someone else had reached the Godking level. Yet today, it happened because of me.” Duanmu Yu had a slight smile on his face.
Duanmu Yu slightly smiled to Qin Yu, Zhou Xian and them.
As if the world was being overturned, Qin Yu clearly felt that the space where he and everyone else was in, was being moved. However, he did not resist. That was because he believed in Duanmu Yu.
In a blink of an eye.
Qin Yu and everyone else reached the sky above the ocean from the depths of the ocean.
“D-Duanmu Yu, y-you’ve become a Godking?” Zhou Xian had an extremely amazed expression on his face. It was as if he had seen something that he could not believe.
Duanmu Yu nodded to Zhou Xian while smiling.
Zhou Xian felt a bust of unhappiness.
He, Zhou Xian, was definitely comparable to Duanmu Yu in terms of family background. However, his cultivation speed was much slower than Duanmu Yu’s. Merely, because Duanmu Yu had been trapped at the peak of the High Level Heavenly Deity stage for too long, Zhou Xian had managed to catch up to him.
In all these years, Zhou Xian had believed himself to be at the same class as Duanmu Yu.
And when the groom search began, Zhou Xian had even believed that once he married Jiang Li, it was extremely possible for him to achieve a breakthrough of the final level and reach the Godking stage, surpassing Duanmu Yu.
However, in the midst of the groom search, Duanmu Yu actually managed to achieve comprehension and become a Godking.
The seven colored auspicious clouds had covered the entire vast sky. Neverending amounts of lightning and thunder were flowing through the sky. Usually, when lightning and thunder were formed in the cosmos, they would all be under the control of the Zhou Clan.
However, the change of the world that occurred when a Godking was born was something that the Eight Great Divine Families’ Spiritual Treasures brought about autonomously. No one could obstruct or control the said change.
“Duanmu Yu.” Yi Feng looked at Duanmu Yu.
Duanmu Yu also looked at Yi Feng. Yi Feng lightly smiled and said. “Duanmu Yu. You’ve come here this time for the matter of participating in the groom search. However, you’re now already a Godking. I presume that there would be no need for you to have this Mirage Spirit Mirror anymore either. Merely, when I told you all to check the mansion, I had already decided that if any of you three could completely experience the soul tempering brought about by the Mirage Spirit Mirror, I would then give the Mirage Spirit Mirror to that person. Among the three, only you managed to completely experience the soul tempering. This Mirage Spirit Mirror shall become yours from now on…”
A simple and unadorned mirror started to float above Yi Feng’s hand. A drop of blood was floating on the surface of the mirror. Everyone understood that Yi Feng had already removed the blood oath from the Mirage Spirit Mirror.
Turning into a ray of light, the Mirage Spirit Mirror arrived before Duanmu Yu.
Duanmu Yu reached out his hand and received the mirror. He then nodded and said. “Thank you Brother Yi Feng.”
“No need. As you’ve completely experienced the soul tempering, you are qualified to possess it.” After he finished saying that, Yi Feng waved his sleeve and called upon a burst of wind. Yi Feng had disappeared with the wind.
Seeing this scene, Qin Yu gasped in his heart.
He understood everything now.
The Mirage Spirit Mirror was originally Yi Feng’s. Yi Feng had all of them enter the mansion just to test out who would be able to completely experience the soul tempering, who would be able to endure it completely.
Qin Yu was unable to endure it. He simply couldn’t stand by and watch Li’er being together with Zhou Xian.
“Everyone, I still have an important matter to take care of. I will take my leave back to the Utmost Southern Region’s Light Lens City first. Brother Qin Yu, after I finish my matter, I will go and meet up with you again in the Floating Snow City.” Duanmu Yu nodded to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu also said with a smile. “I shall wait for Brother Duanmu in the Floating Cloud Mansion.”
Duanmu Yu slightly smiled. He then waved his sleeve. The surging violent ocean instantly returned to a tranquil state. Duanmu Yu raised his head toward the sky. The seven colored auspicious cloud and the multitudinous amount of thunder and lightning had all vanished like smoke into thin air.
Soon after, Duanmu Yu disappeared from the sky above the ocean.
“The remarkable ability of Godkings. Truly extraordinary.” Hou Fei exclaimed.
Hei Yu was however frowning. He said to Qin Yu in a low voice. “Big brother, would that Duanmu Yu continue to participate in the groom search? If he were to continue to participate, then…”
Evidently, if a Godking were to participate in the groom search, the threat that he would possess toward Qin Yu would be much greater than that of Zhou Xian.
Qin Yu looked to the direction of the Utmost Southern Region’s Light Lens City. “Duanmu Yu participated in the groom search precisely for the goal of becoming a Godking. And now, he has already reached the Godking level. I don’t think he would continue to participate in it.”
Yet Qin Yu didn’t possess absolute certainty that Duanmu Yu would not continue to participate in the groom search. This was merely his speculation.
An angry humph was heard. “Let’s go!”
Without calling out for Qin Yu and them to say farewell, Zhou Xian coldly brought his four subordinates, soared to the sky and then left. Duanmu Yu becoming a Godking seemed to have caused a major shock to Zhou Xian.
“Big brother, let’s leave too.” Hou Fei waved his sleeve and a ray of light fell onto the surface of the ocean. It turned into a boat. It was the Divine Craft Flying Yamen.
Qin Yu and his brothers got on the Divine Craft Flying Yamen. In an instant, the speed of the Divine Craft Flying Yamen reached its peak.
In merely a short while, Qin Yu and his brothers surpassed Zhou Xian and them. This caused Zhou Xian who was already in a bad mood to be in an even worse mood.
When the seven colored auspicious cloud was formed, it had not formed only in the sky above the Southern Sea. Even the sky in the interior of the Divine Realm had formed an endless number of auspicious cloud with countless electric snakes flowing through it.
The Godkings of the Divine Realm all understood that this signaled the birth of a new Godking.
With their remarkable abilities, the Godkings instantly found out that the new Godking was Duanmu Yu, one of the eighteen candidates in the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City’s groom search.
“Duanmu Yu, it’s actually Duanmu Yu?”
After the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan managed to find out that it was Duanmu Yu, a lot of ideas immediately popped into his head. “Duanmu Yu has become a Godking now, will he still continue to participate in the groom search? If he were to continue to participate, then I…”
To have a Godking as a son-in-law, this was indeed extremely attractive.
“However, after Duanmu Yu became a Godking, the Utmost Southern Region’s Light Lens City now possesses four Godkings. They now have one more Godking than our Floating Snow City.” Jiang Fan was unable to refrain himself from frowning.
In the Divine Realm, the birth of Godkings was an extremely rare matter. Generally, a Godking would not be born in even billions of years. Duanmu Yu’s renowned name was spread through the numerous experts of the Divine Realm.
Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City. Inside the Floating Cloud Mansion.
Qin Yu and his brothers were seated around the table. They were toasting and drinking with one another.
“Big brother, although that Duanmu Yu is a Godking, Godkings still need life companions. He still possesses the Mirage Spirit Mirror. If he were to truly continue to participate in the groom search, then it is likely for him to obtain the second chosen candidate spot. After the three chosen candidate spots are determined, the Utmost North Sage Emperor Jiang Fan might perhaps choose the Godking Duanmu Yu as his son-in-law.” Hou Fei had grown worried for Qin Yu.
“There is no need to speak any further.”
Qin Yu lightly smiled and raised his cup. “The matter of whether Duanmu Yu will continue to participate in the groom search or not, is not something that we can decide. What we ought to do right now is to put forth our utmost efforts. Furthermore… Fei Fei, do you think that if the Utmost North Sage Emperor were to select another person to become his son-in-law, I would just sit by and accept it?”
Both Hou Fei and Hei Yu’s eyes shined as they looked at Qin Yu.
“Big brother, you mean?” Hou Fei had an excited expression in his eyes.
Qin Yu lightly laughed. His eyes were emitting a cold light. “Humph, I merely participated in this groom search so that I would not make things difficult for Li’er. However, if the end result is for Li’er and I to separate… would I still care about the other stuff? Regardless of who tries to blocks my path, it would all be useless. I want to see, even if they were Godkings, what could they possibly do to me?”
Both Hou Fei and Hei Yu had an indescribable excitement in their eyes.
Especially when fighting against super experts, this was the most exciting.
The two brothers also knew the trump cards that their big brother Qin Yu possessed. The Variation Magnificent Lotus Clone that was said to possess an undying body, that Divine Spear Waning Snow, the Spatial Energy from the New Cosmos and the remarkable ability of teleportation.
With all of those, they were more than sufficient for Qin Yu to fight against Godkings.
“Fei Fei, Xiao Hei, there are currently more than nine years left till the ten years date. This amount of time is more than enough for me to prepare as well as craft weapons for you two.”
Qin Yu smiled and said.
Qin Yu long since prepared to craft weapons for his brothers. However, after he became a grandmaster artifact craftsman, he had been busy the entire time and doesn’t have any idle time to craft weapons.
“Craft weapons?” Hou Fei and Hei Yu glanced at each other.
A rare smile appeared on Hei Yu’s face. “Big brother, what level weapons would they be?”
Hou Fei also looked to Qin Yu with anticipation.
“Ones that aren’t inferior to first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures!” Said Qin Yu with absolute certainty. The Divine Spear Waning Snow had only absorbed a tenth of the Dark and Yellow Energy. There still remained nine tenths of the Dark and Yellow Energy.
Qin Yu was confident in crafting two weapons with might approaching that of the Divine Spear and then having them absorb the Dark and Yellow Energy to make their might reach that of a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
After all, when the Divine Spear Waning Snow had only absorbed a thousandth of the Dark and Yellow Energy, it was already powerful enough to match that of first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
There was ninety percent of the Dark and Yellow Energy left. If he were to spend ten or twenty percent for his brothers of life and death, what significance would that be?
“First-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures? Big brother, you’d best not be boasting.” Hou Fei did not believe Qin Yu.
“You’ll understand when the time comes.” Qin Yu slightly smiled.
Qin Yu was not anxious. He figured that his brothers would understand how powerful the weapons would be once they appeared before them.
“Fei Fei, Xiao Hei, are you two still using a stick and a spear as your weapons?” Qin Yu asked. “Furthermore, is there any special request you have for your weapons?”
Only through knowing what his two brothers wanted would Qin Yu be capable of creating a precise plan for crafting the two weapons.
“There’s no need for anything special, it’ll be fine as long as it’s similar to the Black Stick.” Hou Fei laughed and said.
“It’s the same for me. It’ll be fine as long as it’s similar to the Cloud Piercing Spear.” Hei Yu’s condition was also extremely low.
Qin Yu knew that his two brothers didn’t want to make things too difficult for him. “Xiao Hei, Fei Fei, soon, the two of you would be able to experience how powerful these two weapons will be.” Qin Yu said confidently.
Qin Yu had also grown a bit of anticipation.
The scene of three brothers all using Dark and Yellow Energy weapons. He had grown excited just thinking of it.
