Inside the dusky room, only a red candle was burning. The flame of the candle was lightly flickering. The Thunder Nightmare Godking Zhou Wulian was staring at this red candle without blinking at all.
The red candle grew shorter and shorter. In the end, the flame died out.
“Sigh.” After the flames died out, a long sigh sounded from the dusky room. After some time, another red candle was lit up. The candle began to burn once again…
An unknown number of red candles have already been burned.
“Third brother, quickly come to the Sage Emperor’s Palace.”
The Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Huo’s voice suddenly sounded in Zhou Wulian’s mind. Zhou Wulian’s dangling eyes suddenly was suddenly opened. A lighting flashed through those eyes. As for that red candle that had already been burned to half, it immediately disintegrated to nothingness.
After pushing open the door to his room, Zhou Wulian raised his head and looked to the sky. An endless amount of lighting was flickering in the sky. The sky of the Thunder Punishment City was covered with countless amounts of lightning for eternity.
Although Zhou Huo’s voice transmission sounded to be urgent, Zhou Wulian did not hurry in the slightest. He slowly walked out from his mansion and began to walk toward the Sage Emperor’s Palace step by step.
He walked all the way to the entrance gates of the Sage Emperor’s Palace.
“It’s Yan’er?” A gentle voice sounded from within the Sage Emperor’s Palace. Zhou Wulian who originally appeared to be dispirited had immediately grew energetic. He immediately sped up his pace and entered into the Sage Emperor’s Palace.
[TL: Yan → nightmare. The same nightmare in the Thunder Nightmare Godking.]
Seated above the Sage Emperor’s Palace’s palace hall was a purple gowned and silver haired old man. This old man possessed a pair of eagle-like sharp eyes. His lips were very thin and slightly purple in color. As for his long silver hair, each and every strand of hair was flickering with a transparent light. If one did not carefully observe it, one would not be able to tell at all. Between his eyebrows was a scarlet colored mark.
Standing below the palace hall was the Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Xian, Thunder Martial Godking Zhou Tong as well as Zhou Wulian’s son Zhou Ran. At this moment, these three Great Godkings were displaying an extremely polite and modest attitude.
Zhou Wulian said with a bow.
This silver haired old man was precisely the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial of the Divine Realm’s Three Great Exalted Celestial.
“Yan’er.” Facing Zhou Wulian, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial displayed a face filled with smiles.
Why did the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial address Zhou Wulian as Yan’er? Actually, this Zhou Wulian’s actual name was Zhou Yan. The three sons of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial… oldest son Zhou Huo, second son Zhou Tong and third son Zhou Yan.
Merely, six quadrillion years ago, Zhou Yan changed his name to Zhou Wulian.
“What might lord father have come here for today?” Zhou Wulian said indifferently. Merely, within his gaze was the trace of politeness and modesty that one had towards their father.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial took a glance at his third son. He sighed in his heart.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial knew very well that his third son had already been heartbroken to a state of death and had nothing to long for in life. Likely there would not be anything that could stir up his emotions. Every single time when he remembered that his son had changed his name to ‘Wulian,’ the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial felt extremely helpless in his heart.
[TL: Wulian → No feeling of attachment.]
“The main reason for my return is because of the suddenly emerged Qin Yu. I’ve heard that this Qin Yu has placed our Thunder Punishment City in a sorry state? Is this matter true?” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial’s gaze was cast to the four people below.
Zhou Huo displayed an ashamed expression. He immediately spoke and said. “Father, this is indeed the truth.”
The Thunder Martial Godking Zhou Tong said with a clear voice. “Father, according to what Zhou Xian has said, this Qin Yu ought to only be a nobody from the Mortal Realm twenty thousand years ago. Yet now, he is capable of crafting first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. Furthermore, his strength is very, very strange!”
“Haha… how could strength be described as weird?” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial lightly laughed.
Ordinarily, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial would not bother about the matter that occurred in the Thunder Punishment City. That was because he believed that no one would dare to provoke the Thunder Punishment City. Merely, this time around, after he returned to the Divine Realm after wandering the lower realms, he would occasionally hear about people talking about the matters of the Thunder Punishment City. Only through that did he manage to have a rough idea of what had happened.
“Grandfather.” Zhou Ran said respectfully. “That Qin Yu is not a Godking. Yet, what’s so strange is… that Qin Yu could teleport and even accelerate time!”
“Capable of teleportation and Time Acceleration? Not a Godking?” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial nodded. However, he did not display a very shocked expression on his face.
“What’s the most astonishing was that he was capable of breaking the Spatial Freezing created by the Six Great Sage Emperors at the same time and subsiding the space.” Zhou Ran’s voice contained the gasp of surprise.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial’s eyelids were raised. He was finally surprised.
“Lord Father, it seemed that you have some understanding of this Qin Yu?” Zhou Huo asked.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial nodded and said. “That’s of course. Not long ago, that Qin Yu managed to surmount the Heaven Connecting Flight of Steps on the Mountain Sea Palace. Thus, I would naturally take note of him. Because of this, I had even discussed matters about this Qin Yu with my Eldest Martial Older Brother and Third Martial Younger Brother. However, according to what my Eldest Martial Older Brother had said… ’if something exists, then there must be a reason for it. Do not investigate pointlessly.’”
“Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial?”
Zhou Huo gulped. He then ask. “Lord Father, could that Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial possess a relationship with that Qin Yu? If the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial were to value that Qin Yu deeply, then our Thunder Punishment City might as well endure our anger.”
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial coldly humped. The red mark between his brows actually started to shine. “You all can rest assured. I’ve already asked my Eldest Martial Older Brother about this. This Qin Yu does not possess any relationship with him. However, if you all want to deal with this Qin Yu, feel free to do it. If all else fails… this old fellow here could also set out to deal with him.”
After hearing these words, the Four Great Godkings in the Northwest Sage Emperor’s Palace were all shocked. Even the Thunder Nightmare Godking Zhou Wulian looked to his father in shock.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said coldly. “In this enormous Cosmos, the Thunder Punishment City is my root. It is also your root. No matter what, we definitely cannot allow anyone to humiliate our Thunder Punishment City and trample upon its dignity.”
“Yes, Lord Father.”
At this moment, Zhou Huo was overjoyed. With these words from the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial, Zhou Huo had became completely relieved. Even if they were unable to win against Qin Yu, if they were to have their father set off to deal with him, then wouldn’t that guarantee a win?
How could there be any need to doubt the strength of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial?
“However.” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial suddenly muttered.
The Four Great Godkings below were all quietly listening. To say ‘however,’ it would seem that it was not that easy to have the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial set out to deal with Qin Yu.
“However, my Eldest Martial Older Brother had told me that the Exalted Celestial Mountain is about to descend. During the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain till the birth of the new Exalted Celestial, I am only allowed to attack once. During that time, I am not allowed to attack anyone else so as to not destroy the equilibrium when fighting for the new Exalted Celestial.”
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial looked to the four Godkings below him. “You all ought to understand what I meant. If you wish to have me handle that Qin Yu, then there are only two times where I can do that. One is before the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain and the other is after the birth of the new Exalted Celestial. As for during the period of time in between that, I am not allowed to attack. Otherwise, my Eldest Martial Older Brother and Third Martial Younger Brother would come and create troubles for me.”
Zhou Huo, Zhou Tong and Zhou Ran all heaved a sigh of relief in their hearts.
“Lord Father, we will definitely take care of that Qin Yu before the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. If we fail to take care of him, it would not be too late for us to trouble Lord Father then.” Zhou Huo said respectfully.
The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial nodded.
“Remember, do not try to be excessively brave.” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial advised.
“Yes, Father (Grandfather).”
The Four Great Godkings below all answered with a bow.
“Mn. In this period of time, I’ll be living at the old place. If you all don’t need anything, then don’t come and disturb me.” The Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial said indifferently. He then took a glance at Zhou Wulian and then disappeared from the palace hall.
Only after the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial disappeared did these four Godkings raise their body up.
“Good.” Zhou Huo held his fist up. His eyes were filled with excitement. “Haha, with what father had said, there is no need for me to ever be afraid again. That’s right, what father had said is right… No one can trample upon our Thunder Punishment City’s dignity.”
Zhou Tong and Zhou Ran who stood beside him were also displayed a joyous expression throughout their faces.
“This time around, that Qin Yu is definitely going to die.” Zhou Tong said with laughter. All of the Sage Emperors knew very well that regardless of which of the Three Great Exalted Celestial set out to attack, their might would surpass that of the Eight Great Sage Emperors combined.
They are absolutely unequalled.
Those who were not Exalted Celestials, there was no one among them capable of shaking up the Exalted Celestials.
“Big brother, second brother, Ran’er, I’ll be returning first. If you all need my help in dealing with that Qin Yu, just inform me.” After he finished saying that, Zhou Wulian waved his sleeve, turned around and began to slowly walk away.
Zhou Ran looked to his father’s desolate back, he heart was filled with the feeling of helplessness.
During the time when the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial arrived at the Thunder Punishment City, in the New Cosmos’s Purple Mystic Star’s Purple Mystic Mansion, Qin Yu and them were extremely lively.
Qin Yu moved his horse piece and then said with a loud laughter. “Fei Fei, are you stunned yet? Interlocking of two horses, you’re toasted.” At this moment, Qin Yu was laughing extremely happily.
Hou Fei looked to the chess pieces before him. He was so frustrated that he started tweaking his ears and scratching his cheeks. He even looked to Hei Yu beside him. Hei Yu was also frowning and displaying a helpless expression.
“In Chinese chess, even if the two of you combined, you’ll be no match for me.” Qin Yu said confidently.
Hou Fei curled his lips. “Big brother, if you have the ability, then stop playing chess with only me and Mixed Hair Bird the entire time. Go and challenge Big Sis Li’er. Yesterday, how many rounds did you manage to win against Big Sis Li’er?”
Qin Yu immediately grew silent.
Ten rounds, not a single victory!
If it wasn’t for the fact that he was devastated too badly by Li’er, why would Qin Yu bother to go and devastate his brothers?
“Eh, Fei Fei, where’s Uncle Lan?” With an intention from Qin Yu, everything from the New Cosmos was within his heart. “Uncle Lan’s actually not in the New Cosmos?”
“Oh, that’s right. When you were still in bed with Big Sis Li’er, Uncle Lan had told me that he’s returning to the Floating Snow City.”
