Within this New Cosmos, Qin Yu was unequalled. Even though the Ancient Red Tung Tree was extremely tough and durable, Qin Yu was still able to cut it apart with a single wave of his hand. However, had it been in the Divine Realm, then Qin Yu would likely have to spend a great deal of effort to cut it apart.
Jiang Lan looked at the Ancient Red Tung Tree that had fallen. He nodded and said. “The Tree Core of this Ancient Red Tung Tree could indeed be considered an utmost supreme top quality crafting material. However, using only this Tree Core would only allow one to craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Little Yu, do you have the certainty that you’ll be able to win with this second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?” As he said that, Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu slightly smiled. “Uncle Lan, I got this. You do not have to worry.”
Qin Yu did not have absolute confidence. He knew very well that with his artifact craftsmanship ability… if his state were extremely at its peak, then he would indeed be able to craft a peak second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure using this Ancient Red Tung Tree.
However, one’s state during crafting was very hard to control.
A single little error was capable of causing an item to drop in rank.
“Little Yu, do not try to deceive me.” Jiang Lan slightly smiled. “I have also meticulously studied artifact crafting before. My understanding of it is inferior to yours… but look at the Jiang Lan Realm, you ought to be able to tell my artifact crafting ability.”
Qin Yu was stunned.
Jiang Lan continued. “I know very well that this Ancient Red Tung Tree is something birthed by the world. A Divine Tree born by the world, its Tree Core does indeed contain within it Grandmist Spiritual Energy. However, with the amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy within the Tree Core of the Ancient Red Tung Tree, it would only be enough for one to craft a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The most important aspect one needed in order to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure is… Grandmist Spiritual Energy! Little Yu, say, was what I said correct?”
Qin Yu smiled bitterly. He could only nod honestly.
Qin Yu knew that he couldn’t deceive Uncle Lan! Uncle Lan was also very proficient in the matter of artifact crafting.
Jiang Lan continued. “When the Craftsman God Chenhou Yuan crafted the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for the Asura Godking, he had melted down a total of three second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures and six third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures in order to obtain enough Grandmist Spiritual Energy. Using this Grandmist Spiritual Energy, a large number of precious materials, and Craftsman God Chehou Yuan’s peak craftsmanship ability, only then did he manage to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.”
Qin Yu was carefully listening.
Although Qin Yu knew that the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had crafted a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, he did not know about the detailed course of events.
“The Grandmist Spiritual Energy is an extremely miraculous energy of the world. It by itself does not possess a lot of attack power. However, once it is assimilated into weapons, it will allow a weapon to contain spiritual nature and come to possess an even more remarkable ability.” Jiang Lan exclaimed.
“Even if your craftsmanship ability is sufficient to create a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, you would still require a sufficient amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy. I have quite many relatively good crafting materials at my place. I reckon that you also have some here, right? If we were to add those to the Ancient Red Tung Tree’s Tree Core… I reckon the materials would not be much inferior to the materials that the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan had used to craft his first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. And now, the only thing that is lacking is the Grandmist Spiritual Energy. The amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy the Ancient Red Tung Tree contains is truly insufficient.”
Qin Yu nodded.
He also knew very well in his heart that the Tree Core of the Ancient Red Tung Tree was completely incomparable with the Tree Core of the Ancient Ironwood Tree. Regardless of whether it was the quality of the material, or the amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy that it contained, there existed a significant gap between them.
“Little Yu, rest assured. I know… You likely wouldn’t be able to find any Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Even if you have one, it should only be that Jade Spring Gourd. Isn’t that right?” Jiang Lan said with a smile.
Qin Yu smiled helplessly.
He does possess a couple Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. For example, there was the Refining Flame Wristband. However, the Refining Flame Wristband was extremely important in the process of artifact crafting. How could Qin Yu be willing to melt it down?
There was also the God Sealing Pagoda. However, the God Sealing Pagoda was the main aspect to controlling Qiuzhong Fu, Black Dragon Tan Jiu and various other Heavenly Deities.
As for the ones he held no use for initially, he had already given them to Hou Fei and Hei Yu. The only one that he had no use for right now was the Jade Spring Gourd bestowed to him by the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.
As for the Fire Origin Spiritual Pearl and the Purple Rain Dress, they were two first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Unless Qin Yu’s brain had issues, there would be no way for him to destroy two first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
Seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Jiang Lan naturally understood.
“Little Yu, have you seen it? That Zhou Xian, his Nine Phoenix Crown, all nine of those spiritual pearls were third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. That’s the fact. Merely by those nine third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures’ Grandmist Spiritual Energy, if they were to be added on top of the Grandmist Spiritual Energy of the Ancient Red Tung Tree’s Tree Core, it would already be enough.” Jiang Lan said with a smile.
Qin Yu said helplessly. “Uncle Lan, why did you mention the Nine Phoenix Crown? Could it be, that you want to melt down the Nine Phoenix Crown?”
Jiang Lan started laughing. “I did not said that for with that intention. I merely want you to know that… among Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, the overwhelming majority of them are ornamental Grandmist Spiritual Treasures! As for real offensive Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, they are extremely rare. That was also the reason why Zhou Xian was able to take out nine Grandmist Spiritual Treasures for ornamental purposes.”
Qin Yu nodded.
Even if it were only ornamental Grandmist Spiritual Treasures, Qin Yu still didn’t possess any.
“I know that you have cultivated for too short of a time. Thus, you naturally would not be able to obtain many Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, your Uncle Lan I….” Uncle Lan displayed a smile on his face.
“I have existed since the time when the Divine Realm was formed. I have also been a Godking for an extremely long period of time. Just think about it; I was able to obtain even the Ancient Ironwood Tree, how many useless Grandmist Spiritual Treasures do you think I would have?” Jiang Lan looked to Qin Yu while smiling.
Qin Yu came to an complete understanding now.
What Uncle Lan meant was, he’d give Qin Yu Grandmist Spiritual Treasures to melt down.
“You do not have to mind about it too much. I truly possess quite a lot of Grandmist Spiritual Treasures that are of no use and could only be taken out to play with. How about this, I’ll take out six third-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures and a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for you to melt down.” Jiang Lan’s words were spoken in a tone of not allowing for rejection.
Qin Yu looked at Uncle Lan. In the end, he nodded.
“Exactly how much do I owe Uncle Lan?” Qin Yu was unable to calculate that anymore. Back in the Mortal Realm, Uncle Lan had saved his life several times already.
And after he arrived in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, the exact number of times that Uncle Lan had assisted him in the shadows was something that Qin Yu was unable to imagine.
All in all…
In Qin Yu’s heart, Uncle Lan possessed a status not inferior to his own father.
“Come, let’s return to the Wood Mansion. Those insignificant and relatively useless Grandmist Spiritual Treasures of mine, I keep the majority of them within the Wood Mansion’s storehouse.” Jiang Lan said to Qin Yu.
Qin Yu nodded.
Inside the Wood Mansion.
Right after the banquet at the Sage Emperor’s Palace ended, Jiang Lan had went to Qin Yu’s place. As for Jiang Yan, she had went to the Wood Mansion. As the main character of the groom search, Jiang Li had only displayed herself during the first occasion. She was not present in the other two judgements.
Inside the secluded courtyard deep within the Wood Mansion. The sisters Jiang Li and Jiang Yan were sitting together underneath the Ancient Ironwood Tree.
“Lil sister, you said that Big Brother Qin Yu lost?” Jiang Li immediately stood up.
Jiang Yan immediately said. “Big sister, you’ve heard about all the course of events earlier. This matter cannot be blamed upon Big Brother Qin Yu. From the way I see it, that Northwest Sage Emperor had clearly did something in the shadows. Otherwise, how could Zhou Xian possibly win?”
“I know.” Jiang Li had a bitter smile on her face. “Merely, I fear for Big Brother Qin Yu’s current frame of mind. I remember back in the Mortal Realm, what Big Brother Qin Yu hatred the most was being insulted by others. If someone were to insult him, he would fight back right away and might even end up battling against the other person.”
Jiang Li had been with Qin Yu for too short of a time. She didn’t know that in the years leading from the Mortal Realm to the Divine Realm, Qin Yu was already no longer easily angered like how he was back in the Mortal Realm.
“Lil sister, was mother truly that prejudiced and in favor of Zhou Xian during the banquet?” Jiang Li asked. Her worried expression was already seen from her brows.
Jiang Yan lightly nodded.
Chunyu Rou was extremely caring for the two sisters. However, on this matter, she had caused Jiang Li to ache in her heart.
“I know of mother and aunt’s relationship. But…” Jiang Li wanted to say something. However, she ended up not saying it in the end.
“This situation would definitely be hard for Big Brother Qin Yu. The reason he had fought and competed through the various competitions was all so that things would not be difficult for me. That Purple Mystic Mansion…” Tears were flickering in Jiang Li’s eyes.
Jiang Yan who had personally experienced the Purple Mystic Mansion had described everything within the Purple Mystic Mansion to her sister.
Although others might not know about it, but Jiang Li knew very well that the various arrangements within the Purple Mystic Mansion contained many stories of their past.
She was able to feel Qin Yu’s diligence and attentiveness from every portion of it. “They said that Big Brother Qin Yu was not diligent and attentive?” Jiang Li also felt anger within her heart.
Jiang Li’s gaze have suddenly become firm with resolution. “Lil Sister, let’s go to the Floating Cloud Mansion.”
Jiang Yan was shocked jumping.
“Big sister, what are you planning to do?” Jiang Yan promptly tried to stop her. Oh Heavens, Jiang Li was the main character within the groom search. If others were to discover at such a time that Jiang Li had gone to the Floating Cloud Mansion, then who knows what sort of scandal would come about from this.
Jiang Li said. “We’re going to the Floating Cloud Mansion!”
“Big sister.” Jiang Yan pulled Jiang Li.
Jiang Li lightly smiled. “Although I love mother, she still has you, she still has our older and younger brothers. Even without me… there would not be any significant effect to them.”
“However, Big Brother Qin Yu, he had come all the way here from the Mortal Realm. Oh how many life and death crisis has he experienced through this journey? In all these years, what have I been doing? I have merely been hiding within the Wood Mansion. I have been hiding the entire time.”
Jiang Li had a bitter smile on her face. “It is Brother Qin Yu who shouldered all the winds and rains. I have merely been waiting. And now, in order to not make things difficult for me, he has been trying his best and put forth everything. His first gift was a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. His second gift, that Purple Mystic Mansion… all of this, I don’t understand, how could those Godkings not see all of this? How could Big Brother Qin Yu’s diligence and attentiveness possibly be fake?”
“I do not wish to continue like this. I only wish to also do something for Big Brother Qin Yu.” Jiang Li looked at her sister with a smile on her face.
Jiang Yan was dumbstruck.
Was this still the gentle girl who listened to her parents for everything?
Never had Jiang Yan seen her older sister this determined before.
“If Big Brother QIn Yu were to stop his training and cultivation, then he would’ve already be able to be with his father and brothers in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. However, he left the responsibility of taking care of his father to his brothers. Yet he, he bears upon the pain of leaving his father, brothers and relatives and came to the unfamiliar Divine Realm. All of his struggles, they were all for me.” Tears were flickering within Jiang Li’s eyes. “For Big Brother Qin Yu to be able to do all this, how could I possibly not be able to do that too? Furthermore, it’s not like father and mother would lack a single daughter like me among their children.”
Jiang Yan slowly loosened her grip.
She understood her older sister.
Jiang Li smiled to Jiang Yan. She then proceeded to walk toward the entrance of the courtyard.
Qin Yu and Jiang Lan had already returned to the Wood Mansion. The two of them were following the corridors and proceeding toward the inside of the Wood Mansion. However, at the corridors, Qin Yu was pleasantly surprised to encounter Jiang Li.
“Li’er?” Qin Yu was full of joy.
All of his worries, all of his hardships, they all turned to joy and happiness when he saw Li’er.
Jiang Li was shocked to see Qin Yu. After some time, she rushed over into Qin Yu’s bosom. She tightly hugged him. Tears started to roll down her eyes.
“Li’er, what,what’s wrong?” Qin Yu felt completely confused. He looked to Jiang Lan beside him. Jiang Lan was also completely confused.
Qin Yu started to comfort Jiang Li.
Jiang Li who was in Qin Yu’s bosom suddenly raised her head and looked to him. She said a series of words that shocked Qin Yu. “Big Brother Qin Yu, can we elope now? You don’t have to worry anymore. You don’t have to be vexed and distressed over those complicated things anymore.”
“Li’er, don’t let your imagination run wild.” Qin Yu immediately understood what Jiang Li was thinking and was deeply moved.
Worries and hardships could not be considered as anything.
As long as Li’er understood all of this, Qin Yu would already be blessed with happiness.
“You merely need to sit still and wait. In another ten years, after I obtain the third chosen candidate spot… at that moment, you will only have to wait to be married to me.” Qin Yu said with a smile.
Jiang Li looked at Qin Yu as if she were in a daze.
She was able to tell that there was not the slightest amount of worry or hardship within Qin Yu’s eyes. All that contained within them were only happiness and his cherish toward her.
“Big Brother Qin Yu, I…”
“It’s okay.” Qin Yu smiled. His gaze was fixed upon Jiang Li. “Don’t give up halfway, okay? I believe that you will be able to become my bride happily.”
Jiang Li wanted to say something. Yet, she didn’t manage to say those words out. At this moment, she only felt that she had been completely engulfed by happiness and emotions.
Afterwards, Qin Yu encountered Jiang Yan. They chatted for a very long time. Only then did Jiang Li finally let go of the matter that gnaws at her mind. After that, Qin Yu, Jiang Li, Jiang Yan and Jiang Lan proceeded to walk toward the Wood Mansion’s storehouse.
“I’ve never been to the storehouse before. What sort of treasures will there be in there?” Jiang Yan was so excited that her eyes were shining.
As for Jiang Li, she merely followed Qin Yu. In her heart, everything was already good enough as long as she followed Qin Yu.
“This storehouse is merely a simple use of the spatial laws. Come, follow me.” Jiang Lan walked to the entrance of a underground tunnel. The underground tunnel’s gates opened by itself.
Qin Yu and them followed Jiang Lan and walked into the storehouse.
