When Qin Yu discovered that the person who had suddenly tried to sneak attack him was Zhou Wulian, Qin Yu’s guard had instantly risen to its highest level.
Among the Four Great Godkings of the Thunder Punishment City, this Zhou Wulian was the one that Qin Yu wanted to avoid the most. Although Zhou Huo possessed the Clan Protection Spiritual Treasure and appeared to be even greater of a threat, Qin Yu’s current understanding of the Origin Energy was much greater than before. It was so high that his soul had even absorbed the Cosmic Origin Energy.
As the saying goes, know yourself and know your enemy and you will never be defeated.
Qin Yu naturally pay no attention to Zhou Huo at all. However, this Zhou Wulian was different. According to what Qin Yu knew, this Zhou Wulian merely used a second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure as his weapon. However, his individual power was extremely powerful. Why was he this powerful? What about him was powerful? All of these were something that Qin Yu did not know about. What one didn’t know was the most frightening!
The cyan colored blade ray was rapidly slashing toward Qin Yu. Qin Yu was able to tell that the flow of time surrounding this cyan colored blade ray would occasionally increase by millions of times and occasionally only increase by several tens of times. However, this cyan blade ray appeared to be extremely harmonizing naturally. At the same time… the countless amount of bamboos within the Vast Territory was actually unable to stop the blade ray in the slightest.
When the blade ray approached Qin Yu’s body, the blade ray suddenly grew bigger. A neat blade trace unexpectedly appeared in that space. Fortunately they were located within the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure where the space was so stable that even first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures cannot easily cut open.
As for Qin Yu himself, he too had directly teleported away.
When Qin Yu reappeared, he had appeared behind the Thunder Nightmare Godking Zhou Wulian. Without the slightest hesitation, he thrust the Divine Spear Waning Snow within his hand. The vague Dark and Yellow Energy on the shaft of the Divine Spear Waning Snow began to move. Like a dragon leaving the water, bringing along it a fatal killing intent, the Divine Spear Waning Snow was thrust toward Zhou Wulian.
The speed was too fast.
Teleport, spear strike, Time Acceleration! All of this was coordinated to perfection.
“This Zhou Wulian, if he do not wish to die, then he could only escape with teleportation.” Qin Yu looked to the Divine Spear Waning Snow with his eyes. With a might of breaking apart everything, he thrust it toward Zhou Wulian. Qin Yu was absolutely confident of the Divine Spear Waning Snow.
At this moment…
The bamboos surrounding Qin Yu actually split apart and turned into dust. Qin Yu’s attack was too powerful. It had even caused the Vast Territory to receive an enormous shock.
Zhou Wulian noticed this spear strike. The cyan short blade in his hand took an elegant change in direction. It streaked across a strange curve. Surprisingly and miraculously, the blade blocked the spear right before the spearhead reached Zhou Wulian.
Merely, was the Divine Spear Waning Snow something that one could block head on?
“Eh?” Qin Yu’s expression suddenly changed.
Two extremely soft collision sound was heard. Like a leaping music note, Zhou Wulian’s cyan short blade gently tapped the Divine Spear Waning Snow’s spearhead twice. The accuracy of the Divine Spear Waning Snow was shifted.
It was the first time that Qin Yu met someone who blocked the Divine Spear Waning Snow through using softness to conquer strength.
In order to use softness to conquer strength, it must also be dependent on how ‘firm’ something was.
Against the Divine Spear Waning Snow, a weapon that possessed a terrifying attack, not many people in the entire Divine Realm would be capable of doing what Zhou Wulian had did.
Like a deep pond, Zhou Wulian’s eyes were extremely tranquil and serene. However, at this moment, he still looked to Qin Yu’s Divine Spear Waning Snow with shock. He nodded and said. “Qin Yu, that spear that you held is truly powerful. Just from the slight touch of it earlier, I managed to sense the oppression brought by the Divine Spear Waning Snow… however, a weapon is only a portion of a person’s true strength.”
Qin Yu smiled.
“Zhou Wulian, are you trying to delay?” Qin Yu said with a smile.
Qin Yu was able to guess Zhou Wulian’s current purpose. That was because the current Zhou Huo was wholeheartedly trying to break open the Vast Territory so that they can escape. As for Zhou Wulian, he had came to stop Qin Yu. Merely, from the short exchange earlier, Zhou Wulian already came to know that he cannot face Qin Yu head on. Thus, he began to delay time through speech.
Zhou Wulian nodded indifferently. “Qin Yu, I am able to sense your strength. For example, the temporal laws… you have reached an extremely high level in Time Acceleration. Your talent is something that I truly admire. Merely, Time Acceleration is not something where faster equates better. Sometimes, one must combine the fast and slow of Time Acceleration to create the best effect. This is something that one could only learn through the accumulation of countless years of experience. For example me… in the entire Divine Realm, other than the Asura Godking and the Eight Sage Emperors, there is no other expert that is capable of killing me. Even if they knew Spatial Freezing, they would not be able to do it. This is experience… Qin Yu, properly comprehend this.”
Qin Yu began to smile in his heart.
Although what Zhou Wulian said was reasonable, was it actually useful to Qin Yu?
Qin Yu looked to Zhou Wulian. He smiled and said. “Experience is something useful to experts of the same level. However, toward those experts that are definitely stronger than you, experience would be useless. It’s just like how no matter how much experience you possessed, you are still not match for the Asura Godking.” If a place was to be Time Stopped, then you could only allow yourself to be trampled upon.”
Qin Yu pointed the spearhead of the Divine Spear Waning Snow toward the front. “Earlier, you had merely seen the tip of the iceberg of my Divine Spear Waning Snow.” Qin Yu curled his lips and said with a smile. “Well then, I reckon that Zhou Huo was about to break open this space now. Before then, I’ll have a final battle against you.”
“Final battle?” Zhou Wulian frowned.
Qin Yu did not bother to explain. He merely held his spear and said with a light smile. “Be careful.” After that, the shaft of the Divine Spear Waning Snow swayed. Countless amounts of spear silhouettes appeared from the spearhead. One by one, they were cast forth toward Zhou Wulian like a group of pythons trying to engulf him.
“Third brother, second brother, persist for only a bit longer. I am about to be able to break apart the space sealed by this Vast Territory.” Seeing the countless amount of jade green bamboos that were floating before him, Zhou Huo was putting all his focus on using his Clan Protection Spiritual Treasure, Thunder Origin Spiritual Pearl’s might.
The light of the electric Spiritual Pearl that floated above Zhou Huo’s head shrunk a bit. Immediately after, it burst into an even greater range.
The bamboos that approached him were being shattered unceasingly.
Zhou Huo’s tactic was extremely simple. He planned to have Zhou Wulian and Zhou Tong delay Qin Yu. Only after they break apart the Vast Territory and returned to the Divine Realm could they be at ease again.
In the Divine Realm, they could attack Qin Yu’s Fog City. If they were unable to win against him, they could also run away and teleport back into the Thunder Punishment City and then have the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial come and take care of him.
Back then, the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial had given the order that… when the Exalted Celestial Mount descended till the time when the new Exalted Celestial is born, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial could only attack once. However, before the arrival of the Exalted Celestial Mountain, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial possessed the privilege to kill Godkings.
“How come this Qin Yu’s luck is this good? It’s one thing for his own strength to be powerful. He actually also has several Godkings helping him.” Zhou Huo was striving his best to eliminate the Vast Territory’s layer upon layer of obstruction.
Qin Yu’s true body was fighting against Zhou Wulian. As for Qin Yu’s clone, it was fighting against Zhou Tong. From the surface, it appeared as though his clone had been pinned down by Zhou Tong. However, in actuality…
“If the clone wished to go and disturb Zhou Huo, how could Zhou Tong possibly be able to stop it?“ The cyan gowned Qin Yu was like an unequalled God of War. Each fist strike and leg strike from it would cause the space to tremble.
Just its simple attacks possessed extremely frightening power.
Zhou Tong stopping this cyan gowned Qin Yu with great difficulty. He could accelerate time but the cyan gowned Qin Yu was also capable of that. Qin Yu’s clone also possessed the New Cosmos’s Spatial Energy and the ability of Time Acceleration.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu teleported above Zhou Tong in an upside down position. Its fist struck downward violently. That simple fist contained within it a countless amount of oppression and might. It was like a mountain smashing down from above. Down below, Zhou Tong felt shivers go down his spine.
Zhou Tong had a bitter smile on his face. He chose to dodge the strike with a teleportation.
The Thunder Martial Godking Zhou Tong was famed for his braveness. He loved fighting others head on, using force against force. His body’s defense was indeed extremely powerful. However, when encountering the Qin Yu clone that was formed by a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, his prided defense, when compared to Qin Yu’s clone, was like the cheek of an infant encountering a galvanized iron sheet.
They were simply not of the same level at all.
“Zhou Tong, it appears that you only know how to flee.” The cyan gowned Qin Yu stopped his movement. He did not continue to attack.
Zhou Tong also stopped moving. He was happy that Qin Yu stopped attacking. Merely, after hearing what Qin Yu said, he coldly humped and said. “Qin Yu, we are not sparring here. Instead, this is a battle of life and death. I admit that my defense is inferior to yours. However, does that mean that I must be killed by you because of that? If you do not have the ability to kill me, then stop making those cynical remarks.”
“Oh? You’re trying to justify your actions?” The cyan gowned Qin Yu said with a light laughter.
Zhou Tong’s old face turned angry red.
In the Divine Realm, it was extremely difficult for a Godking to kill another Godking. That was because the Godkings were capable of teleportation! The exception was the Sage Emperors. That was because they possessed the ability of Spatial Freezing that caused others to be unable to teleport. Of course, the Asura Godking was also capable of easily killing other Godkings.
Merely, there were only eight Sage Emperors. As for those who have comprehended Time Stop, the amount was pitifully few.
Thus… in normal circumstances, when a Godking fought another Godking, once a Godking began to continuously teleport and tangle with his or her opponent, that could only be considered as a conduct of acting shamelessly. That was because if one was unable to win against another but still continue to tangle with one’s opponent, then it was indeed a shameless act.
Zhou Tong’s heart was filled with anger. However, he possessed a mission… of tangling around Qin Yu’s clone. That was the reason why he continued to tangle with Qin Yu’s clone even though he was unable to win against it. He himself was also feeling extremely helpless.
After all, of the Four Great Godkings, Zhou Wulian and him were tasked with tangling Qin Yu’s main body and his clone. Zhou Huo was tasked with breaking apart the Vast Territory. As for Zhou Ran… The Zhou Ran who was not in the slightest knowledgeable of the temporal laws was simply unable to even accomplish a state of tangling against Qin Yu’s clone that was capable of Time Acceleration. It was likely that he would be knocked half deaf by a fist strike before he could even react
“Mn? It’s about to break.” The cyan gowned Qin Yu said in a low voice.
Qin Yu’s main body and his clone were intrinsically a single person. The clone’s soul was created through a portion of Qin Yu’s spiritual awareness and the soul’s body. The cyan gowned Qin Yu was also capable of sensing the New Cosmos’s Spatial Energy.
At this moment, he was able to clearly sense that this Vast Territory was in a state of collapse.
“Buzz~~” The space shook. One by one, the bamboos cracked apart and turned into dust. Seeing this, Zhou Tong displayed a cheerful expression on his face.
“Zhou Tong, before you leave, I shall give you a gift.” The cyan gowned Qin Yu said indifferently.
“What?” Zhou Tong looked to the cyan gowned Qin Yu before him. Suddenly, his expression changed.
That was because this cyan gowned Qin Yu turned into a cyan gas. Furthermore, this cyan gas had spread open. The portion of cyan gas that had approached Zhou Tong suddenly turned into a leg. With sharpness, the leg was kicked outward.
Zhou Tong teleported away to dodge the kick.
However, that leg had once again turned into gas. At this moment, Zhou Tong sensed that… in merely a couple breaths more time, the entire space would completely collapse. Thus, at this moment, all of his concentration was placed upon this cyan gas that appeared like a flowing water.
Another portion of cyan gas that approached Zhou Tong turned into a fist. In an instant, the fist was struck forth. Zhou Tong teleported again!
“Bang!” Zhou Tong felt that his body had tightened. After that, he felt a bust of pain in his soul. “Not good.” Zhou Tong directly teleported away. And at this moment, the space created by the Vast Territory had finally completely collapsed. Zhou Wulian who had been tangling with Qin Yu the entire time had also teleported out.
In the sky outside of the Fog City. Qin Yu, Jiang Li, Godking Yi Feng and Zuo Qiulin were all standing in the air. As for Zhou Huo and the other three Godkings of the Thunder Punishment City, they all possessed an unsightly expression on their faces.
“Second brother, how is it?” Zhou Huo looked to the pale faced Zhou Tong beside him.
Zhou Tong’s complexion was extremely pale. He seemed to be in poor health. “It’s nothing. I merely did not notice it at the moment. Truly never had I imagined that not only could Qin Yu’s clone turn into gas, it can also turn into other weapons.”
“Big brother.” Zhou Wulian took a glance at Zhou Huo. He slightly shook his head.
Zhou Huo understood what his third brother was trying to say. Evidently the Fog City was too powerful. The four of them were likely unable to even destroy the Fog City itself.
After taking a glance at the Four Great Godkings that stood side by side before the Fog City, Zhou Huo was about to send a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to have everyone leave together. It would seem that the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial must set off in the end.
“Everyone of the Thunder Punishment City, today, you all desired to destroy my Fog City and kill those of my Fog City. I believe that it is proper for me to return politeness for politeness.” Qin Yu suddenly said with a smile.
Zhou Huo and them sneered in their hearts. They were all anticipating for their father to come handle the matter after they returned.
However, what Qin Yu ended up doing afterward had shocked them.
Qin Yu smiled and pointed with one hand. “Spatial, Freezing!” Right after, with the Fog City as the center, the space within the ten thousand mile range was completely frozen. It was impossible to teleport anymore!
The expression of Zhou Huo and the rest instantly became frozen.
An aura of viciousness was emitted from Qin Yu’s heart. “It’s time to settle the matter.”
