The sea breeze brushed pass. The ocean of countless bamboos of the Bamboo Forest Island waved with the wind and gave birth to a burst of ‘rustle’ sounds. The sound continued for quite some time before stopping.
Qin Yu and Jiang Li were standing on the beach of the Bamboo Forest Island.
“What a beautiful ocean of bamboos. There’s actually this many bamboos on an island.” Jiang Li looked at the jade green bamboos and gasped.
Qin Yu was familiar with this Bamboo Forest Island. He immediately pointed to the ocean of bamboos ahead. “Li’er, this ocean of bamboos was not birthed by nature. Instead, it is the transformation of an extremely powerful treasure. Once one enters the ocean of bamboos, one would be trapped within. Of course, Li’er, you’re already a Godking now. Even if you were trapped within it, you’d still be able to easily escape.”
“Transformation of a treasure?” Jiang Li looked to Qin Yu in shock.
Qin Yu lightly smiled. “Wait a moment. Once you see that Godking Yi Feng, you’ll understand then.”
“Could it be Godking Yi Feng’s treasure ‘Vast Territory?’” Jiang Li suddenly said in shock. “That was the sole Spatial Grandmist Treasure among all the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.”
Qin Yu looked to Jiang Li in shock. How did she know about this?
After seeing Qin Yu’s expression, Jiang Li smiled. “Brother Yu, after the two Soul Tears of Life completely fused with me, I gained access to all of Aunt Zuo Qiumei’s memories. This Godking Yi Feng is one of Aunt Zuo Qiumei’s two great followers and is also the possessor of the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure ‘Vast Territory’. Back then, Godking Yi Feng was only able to escape with his life after being surrounded and attacked by the Sage Emperors by using this Vast Territory.”
Qin Yu nodded.
Qin Yu also knew a bit about the battle from back then. The Sage Emperors joined hands and froze the space. This caused Zuo Qiumei and them to be incapable of teleportation. In that sort of situation, Zuo Qiumei and them had no way of escaping.
Before Qin Yu’s emergence, there were only ten publicly announced first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.
The Eight Great Sage Emperors each possessed a single first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The Asura Godking possessed one. The last one was this Godking, Yi Feng’s. Merely, his Grandmist Spiritual Treasure ‘Vast Territory’ was a Spatial Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. In terms of attack power, Vast Territory was inferior to the other nine first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. However, if one were to compare the ability of trapping others and helping one escape, then Vast Territory was extremely powerful.
“Brother Yu…” Jiang Li suddenly frowned. She said anxiously. “If Godking Yi Feng has been in the ocean of bamboos the entire time, how do we speak with him? This ocean of bamboos itself should be the Vast Territory. This first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, once one enters it, it will be difficult for one to escape even if one is a Godking.”
Qin Yu lightly smiled.
“How to speak with him? We can just speak directly.” Qin Yu looked at the ocean of bamboos. In a clear voice, he said. “Godking Yi Feng, I am Qin Yu. This person next to me is my wife Jiang Li. I wish that Godking Yi Feng would come out to meet us.”
Qin Yu’s voice was so loud that it echoed through the heaven and earth like thunder. Merely, no matter how much this voice echoed, it remained in the several thousand miles range.
A surprised voice was heard. A thin man wearing a white gown appeared. Qin Yu immediately recognized that this man was Godking Yi Feng. Compared to the last time they met, this Godking Yi Feng seemed to have become even skinnier. His appearance was like that of a sick and weak man.
“Uncle Yi Feng.” Jiang Li bowed cleverly.
Yi Feng looked at Jiang Li. Hearing her call him ‘Uncle Yi Feng’, had caused Yi Feng to be extremely happy. He displayed a rare kind smile. “Little girl Jiang Li, never would I have expected that since our last meeting, you’ve actually already become someone’s wife. Furthermore, you’ve also reached the Godking level.”
“Its due to the help from Aunt Zuo Qiumei. Had it not been for Aunt Zuo Qiumei’s Soul Tears of Life, I’m afraid that it would have taken me countless years to reach the Godking level.” A sentimental expression was shown in Jiang Li’s eyes.
“Aunt Zuo Qiumei? A’mei?”
Yi Feng was slightly startled. His gaze had turned misty. He seemed to have recalled the days when he had followed Zuo Qiumei.
“Little girl Jiang Li, according to what I know, you ought to only have obtained a single drop of Soul Tear of Life. How did you manage to obtain two Soul Tears of Life?” Yi Feng looked at Jiang Li and asked. “Could it be that this second Soul Tear of Life was obtained by your husband, Qin Yu?”
Jiang Li took a glance at Qin Yu. Her eyes displayed the radiance of happiness. “Mn, it’s Qin Yu who gave me the other Soul Tear of Life.”
Yi Feng looked at Qin Yu. He nodded satisfied and said. “Little girl Jiang Li, this husband of yours is truly not bad. Surprisingly, he was actually willing to give the Soul Tear of Life to you.”
“Furthermore, ever since the last time this Qin Yu came here, I started paying attention to what’s happening in the Divine Realm. These years, the news of Qin Yu continued to arrive. This husband of yours is truly extraordinary.” Yi Feng looked at Qin Yu with a gaze of admiration. “To be able to craft a new first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure and become the new Craftsman God. Using first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures as gifts. Publicly kidnapping the bride in the Sage Emperor’s Palace. He even defeated two Great Godkings on the Eastern Sea in succession. Little girl Jiang Li, for you to be able to find such a husband, I am also happy for you. If A’mei were still here, she would definitely also be happy for you.”
To be praised like so by another, Qin Yu also felt happy in his heart.
“However, the two of your should not be too complacent.” Godking Yi Feng’s expression sunk.
“The Eight Great Divine Families of the Divine Realm have a joint agreement. They would not allow for another power to grow again and would definitely extinguish them during their budding stage.” Yi Feng said solemnly as he looked at Qin Yu and Jiang Li.
Qin Yu frowned.
Jiang Li asked in confusion. “Didn’t the Divine Realm already have the Three Great Ascender Powers? How did these Three Great Ascender Powers manage to become established in the Divine Realm?”
Yi Feng lightly smiled and said. “The emergence of the Three Great Ascender Powers were formed by a certain chance. One was because of the birth of the Unfettered Exalted Celestial six quadrillion years ago. This allowed the ascenders to have a backing. The other was from the sudden emergence of the Asura Godking. Furthermore, the Blood Demon Queen and the Asura Godking possessed an ambiguous relationship. As for the Godkings of the Dual Domain Island, they are also extremely powerful. The Three Great Ascender Powers managed to set foot to power due to many reasons.”
“By the time they finished emerging, if the Eight Great Divine Families wished to extinguish them, they would definitely have to sustain heavy losses. On top of that, there’s the Unfettered Exalted Celestial in the shadows. Thus, the Eight Great Divine Families ended up maintaining a peaceful relationship with the Three Great Ascender Powers.”
Yi Feng suddenly started to laugh mockingly. “However, the Eight Great Divine Families have an agreement with each other. The emergence of the Three Great Ascender Powers was already the limit of their tolerance. They would definitely not allow for a fourth ascender power to be born. If an indication of such a thing was ever to appear, then the Eight Great Divine Families would eliminate them during their budding stage.”
“Back then, my big brother and I followed A’mei. Because of the fact that three Godkings were together and A’mei also possessed leadership capability, we managed to gather quite a few people underneath us. This caused the Eight Great Divine Families to feel threatened. Thus, they decided to extinguish this power that had yet to mature. The Eight Great Divine Families were extremely unwavering in their methods. Once they set off, they did not allow anyone to survive. Because of this, my big brother died and A’mei also ended up dying in the end. Only I managed to barely escape with my life.”
Yi Feng had a self mocking smile on his face.
Yi Feng suddenly looked at Qin Yu and Jiang Li. “Qin Yu, if my guess is correct, then the sign signaling the birth of a Godking that occurred not long ago ought to be little girl Jiang Li’s, right?”
“Yes, that’s right.” Qin Yu nodded.
Yi Feng’s expression turned solemn. “Qin Yu, from the battle on the Eastern Sea, you’ve already displayed your strength and made the Eight Great Divine Families completely realize it. You are definitely comparable to a powerful Godking. Adding on the fact that Jiang Li has also become a Godking; and the most important matter being… you two are in odds against them. I think… those Eight Great Divine Families will be planning to kill the two of you.”
“There’s no need for us to fear that. Brother Yu defeated two Godkings last time.” Jiang Li was completely confident of Qin Yu.
Yi Feng shook his head.
“You’re wrong. Last time, the Eight Great Divine Families were caught unprepared. At the beginning, they had only thought Qin Yu to be a High Level Heavenly Deity. Thus, they did not think too deeply of how to take care of Qin Yu. However, if they were to set off again, then it would be completely different! Because they know of Qin Yu’s might, once they set off to attack again, they would definitely do so with absolute certainty. By the time you all regret your decisions, it would be too late already!”
Yi Feng’s eyes were brightly locked on to Qin Yu and Jiang Li. “I advise you two to join the Asura Sea and seek help from the Asura Godking Luo Fan. Luo Fan’s might is extremely astonishing. His might is even more terrifying after he obtained a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. The Eight Great Divine Families would also not be willing to go and provoke him.”
Qin Yu lightly nodded.
All that Yi Feng had said were things that Qin Yu knew very well in his heart. However, this Yi Feng did not know of his true trump card. Qin Yu’s true trump card was his New Cosmos. The only reason the Eight Great Divine Families were able to kill Zuo Qiumei was because the Spatial Freezing caused her to become unable to escape.
However, was there anyone capable of preventing Qin Yu from teleporting?
“Godking Yi Feng, please listen to me.” Qin Yu looked to Godking Yi Feng.
Godking Yi Feng nodded and looked to Qin Yu. “Go ahead.”
“Godking Yi Feng, Li’er and I are capable of hiding ourselves, making the Eight Great Divine Families unable to find us. However, Li’er is currently pregnant. I am incapable of putting up with having my child to hide for eternity too. I am also incapable of putting up with making my friends and relatives unable to live their lives openly because of me. Thus, I wish to fight against those Sage Emperors. I… require your assistance too, Godking Yi Feng.”
Qin Yu said his request. Qin Yu did not want to speak too many emotional words. After all, the person he’s trying to persuade was a Godking. Yi Feng would also have his own beliefs.
Yi Feng displayed a trace of anger within his eyes. “Qin Yu, don’t you dare be too arrogant. Who do you think the Sage Emperors are? How could the Sage Emperors who have existed since the birth of the Divine Realm be so easy to handle? If you do not wish to live, then do not make Jiang Li suffer with you. As for I, I too will not become crazy like you.”
Yi Feng humped, turned around and proceeded to walk toward the ocean of bamboos. After two to three steps, he had already entered the ocean of bamboos.
“Godking Yi Feng.”
“Uncle Yi Feng.”
Qin Yu and Jiang Li voiced at the same time. However, Yi Feng didn’t come out. Only his voice sounded beside Qin Yu’s ears. “Qin Yu, do not repeat the tragedy that befell A’mei again. Also, do not believe that just because you’ve defeated two Godkings that you’ll be able to fight against the Sage Emperors. The attack power of Sage Emperors combined with their Clan Protection Spiritual Treasures is something that you could never imagine.”
After the voice dissipated, regardless of what Qin Yu and Jiang Li said, Godking Yi Feng would not respond. Only the ‘rustle’ sound of the ocean of bamboos was heard.
After some time, Qin Yu and Jiang Li had no choice but to admit that their efforts had failed.
“Never had I expected for the first target, the target that we’ve determined to possess the highest possibility of success, was a failure. The beginning of the journey is truly detrimental!” Qin Yu smiled a self mocking smile.
Jiang Li could also only helplessly smile.
“Brother Yu, why didn’t you say that the Sage Emperors’ Spatial Freezing is useless toward you? If you had said that, then Godking Yi Feng might consider it more.” Jiang Li asked Qin Yu.
Qin Yu smiled helplessly. “After he finished his words, he immediately left. Did I even have the time to speak of that? Furthermore, even if I said it, would he even believe me? Li’er, had you not been to the New Cosmos, would you believe that there’s another different set of spatial laws and temporal laws? Would you believe that there’s an unimaginable amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy?”
Jiang Li was startled.
That’s right, some things regarding Qin Yu were truly too miraculous. If one did not see it for themselves, they would definitely not be able to believe it.
Qin Yu suddenly frowned. A Divine Awareness originating from a Godking from Mount Blazing Flame had suddenly covered the entire Divine Realm. It so happened to discover Qin Yu and Jiang Li. At this moment, Jiang Li also sensed the search of the Godking’s Divine Awareness. Jiang Li immediately said to Qin Yu. “Brother Yu, a Godking has discovered us. Let’s return.”
Qin Yu’s eyes suddenly started shining. He started to smile.
“Li’er, the most major reason why this Godking Yi Feng was unwilling to help us was because he believes that I am incapable of escaping the killing encirclement of the Eight Great Divine Families. If I were to fight against those Sage Emperors in front of his home and slightly display my skills, then he ought to believe my abilities if he were to see it for himself.” Qin Yu said with a smile.
Jiang Li grew silent for a moment. She then also nodded.
“Merely, I wonder how many Godkings the Eight Great Divine Families would dispatch to handle us?” Qin Yu said with a smile. “Li’er, if danger comes, you are to immediately enter the New Cosmos, got it?”
In terms of defense, Jiang Li was actually even more powerful than Qin Yu. Jiang Li wore the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure Purple Rain Dress. The ordinary Godkings’ attacks would not injure her in the slightest. Furthermore, she possessed the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure Water Splitter. Thus, her safety was definitely secure. However, Jiang Li still felt a burst of warmth from Qin Yu’s words.
Qin Yu’s New Cosmos’ Spatial Energy covered the entire Divine Realm. Of the Divine Realm’s Eight Great Sacred Lands, other than the Utmost Eastern Region’s Mount Dazzling Gold and the Subterranean City, there were people dispatched from the rest of the Six Great Sacred Lands.
“Hff, they’ve actually only dispatched six Godkings. However, all six of them are Sage Emperors. Six Great Sage Emperors joining hands, what a great display! Could it be that these Six Great Sage Emperors want to eliminate this threat, me, during my budding stage?” Qin Yu said softly. His eyes were instead bursting with excitement.
