Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Robin
It had already been ten years since the Blue Sky Seal was born. However, that Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldon showed no activity at all. No one knew when the Back Earth Seal would be born.
Inside a pavilion within the Inner Lake, Qin Yu was sitting cross-legged by himself.
However, his soul had been completely fused with the New Cosmos. The development speed of the current New Cosmos was growing faster and faster. The Cosmos was separated into three layers. The most complicated Mortal Realm layer had already been completed. As for the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm layer cosmic space, it had reached the final section of its development.
A boundless amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy was frantically rushing in. One after another, the cosmic spaces of the New Cosmos’ second layer were being formed.
“I reckon in another year or two, this New Cosmos’ second layer will be finished forming.” Qin Yu opened his eyes. He had a smile on his face. Qin Yu was looking forward to the completion of the New Cosmos second layer space.
He wanted to know what level his strength would reach once the second layer space finished completion.
“This Exalted Celestial Mountain’s Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron is showing no activity at all. When will the Back Earth Seal be born?” With an intention from Qin Yu, the New Cosmos Spatial Energy followed the Relief Sculpture Tunnel and entered the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
Within the ravine of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
Jiang Lan, Zuo Qiulin and Yi Feng were still together. At this moment, practically all of the Godkings in the ravine were on alert. They all knew that the Back Earth Seal could appear at any moment.
Compared to the number of Godkings who were waiting for the birth of the Blue Sky Seal last time, the number of Godkings in the ravine this time was much lower. The Asura Godking Luo Fan as well as the eight Godkings he killed were not here anymore. However, there was an increase of a Godking…
Jiang Lan was unable to refrain himself from gazing at that long crimson haired woman in the distance.
“Brother Jiang Lan.” Yi Feng sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to Jiang Lan. “According to Qin Yu’s identification, this long crimson haired woman is that mysterious super expert who can use Time Stop. You truly cannot recognize this long crimson haired woman?”
After Qin Shuang was born, Jiang Fan and them had returned to the Exalted Celestial Mountain. When they arrived here, Qin Yu had immediately identified this long crimson haired woman as the Blood Sea Queen. When Qin Yu asked Jiang Lan if he knew who she was, Jiang Lan had said that he doesn’t.
However, as time passed, Jiang Lan became uncertain in his response.
Jiang Lan frowned. He seemed to be hesitating.
“I’m not sure.” Jiang Lan replied.
“Not sure? If you recognize her, then you do. If you don’t then you don’t. Why do you say you’re not sure?” Yi Feng was a bit unsatisfied with Jiang Lan’s response. “Brother Jiang Lan, if there’s something you want to say, then just say it out directly.”
Jiang lan said via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “Brother Yi Feng, this Blood Sea Queen, by merely her appearance and aura, I seemed to have never seen her before. However, these years, I have been taking note of her frequently. From her smiles, scowls and her simple movements, I determined that she appeared to resemble an old friend of mine deeply.”
“Old friend?” Yi Feng looked to Jiang Lan.
“That old friend of mine is called Xue Yun. She is a pure girl who rarely speaks. Back then, Xue Yun had formed an group with the Unfettered Godking and fought for the Exalted Celestial Mountain’s Spiritual Treasure together with him.” Jiang Lan said in details.
“Joining hands with the Unfettered Godking? You’re speaking about the Unfettered Exalted Celestial, right?” Yi Feng was a bit shocked.
“That’s right. It’s just that in the future, the Unfettered Godking got lucky, and obtained the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure and became the new Exalted Celestial. As for Xue Yun, she remained an ordinary Godking. After that, she had concealed her identity and disappeared.” Jiang Lan frowned and took a glance at the Blood Sea Godking in the distance. “However, Xue Yun from back then, her strength was truly ordinary. Furthermore, her aura and gaze was not this fierce as this Blood Sea Queen. I am unable to believe that the Xue Yun who was pure like a piece of white paper would change this greatly.”
“Merely, some of her movements resemble the Xue Yun from back then. That’s why I suspected that she might be Xue Yun. Of course, it’s merely a suspicion.” Jiang Lan said via voice transmission.
Yi Feng nodded.
“Brother Jiang Fan, Godking Zuo Qiulin.” Yi Feng suddenly sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to them. Zuo Qiulin also opened his eyes and looked at Yi Feng.
Yi Feng smiled and continued to speak via voice transmission. “I remembered a matter. Now that the Asura Godking is no longer at the Exalted Celestial Mountain, in terms of only strength, I believe that if the three of us were to join hands, we would be quite a power to reckon with. We ought to be possess the opportunity to obtain the Back Earth Seal.”
Zuo Qiulin’s eyes shined.
Both Zuo Qiulin and Jiang Lan, back when they did not have a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, already possessed strength that was close to that of the Sage Emperors. And now, Jiang Lan possessed the Gauze Feather Blade and Zuo Qiulin possessed the Ten Thousand Willows Scepter. The strength the two of them possessed definity surpassed that of ordinary Sage Emperors. As for Yi Feng, he also possessed the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure Vast Territory.
If the three of them join hands, their strength was definitely no weaker than three Sage Emperors joining hands.
“That’s right, it’s promising.” A trace of rare excitement flashed past Zuo Qiulin’s eyes. “Because the Asura Godking is not present anymore, the current Eight Great Sage Emperors are not united. Jiang Fan, Zhou Huo and Shentu Yan are in a group. Duanmu Yun, Tang Lan and Mu Qin are in a group. The remaining other two are in a group. The Eight Great Sage Emperors are not united… As for that Blood Sea Queen, she does not possess an offensive first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. If we were to be careful, there’s hope for us to obtain the Back Earth Seal.”
Jiang Lan grew silent for a moment.
“In that case, let’s plan carefully.” Jiang Lan was also looking forward to the Back Earth Seal. Immediately after, these three Godkings began discussing with one another and began planning how to contest over the Back Earth Seal.
Jiang Fan, Shentu Yan and Zhou Huo were all sitting there quietly.
Jiang Fan would look to the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron in the center of the ravine every now and then. The Back Earth Seal that was about to appear from the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron and was something that Jiang Fan was anticipating for a long time.
He planned to obtain the Back Earth Seal first and then obtain the All People Seal with the help of the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial. If he were to succeed, then the chance of him, Jiang Fan, becoming an Exalted Celestial would be extremely great.
Like habit, Jiang Fan once again looked over to the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron. Right when he was about to habitually redraw his gaze, he was suddenly stunned. That was because he discovered that the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron was actually shining with light.
Jiang Fan’s eyes immediately started shining.
“Shentu, Zhou Huo, quickly, the Back Earth Seal is about to be born.” Jiang Fan immediately reacted and called out for the other two with through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. Jiang Fan did not create any movement in fear of alarming the other Godkings. He was hoping that the other Godkings would discover this later.
However, all of the Godkings were on high alert.
The slight change in the illumination of the surrounding of the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron had caused practically all of the Godkings to look over to it.
“The Back Earth Seal is about to be born?” The eyes of the Blood Sea Queen who stood at a corner of the ravine suddenly shined. The Blood Sea Queen had hid her strength and entered onto the Exalted Celestial Mountain. The other Godkings, for example the Eight Great Sage Emperors, had not discover her astonishing strength at all.
The Blood Sea Queen licked her lips and shoot a glance at the several Sage Emperors in the distant. “Humph, having not seen each other in six quadrillion years, never would I expect that no one recognized me. It would seem that my change is truly great. However, this is good too. To not be taken note of by you all, I would be able to catch you all off guard and obtain the Back Earth Seal.”
As the Asura Godking was not present anymore, the Blood Sea Queen was extremely confident.
The four totems on the four sides of the enormous Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron began to emit faint lights. As for the space above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron, the light there was dazzling. All of the Godkings had stood up. All their gazes were focused upon the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron.
Suddenly, the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron began to tremble. The light above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron instantly became more intense. Practically all of the Godkings present began to immediately fly toward the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron.
Of the Eight Great Sage Emperors, five of them had used Spatial Freezing at practically the same time. No matter who it was that obtained the Back Earth Seal, they would not be able to teleport to the Relief Sculpture Tunnel.
The Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron suddenly started shaking. A ash-black light was shot out with a frightening speed.
This ash-black light was extremely strange. It actually did an arc and then rushed into the mountain rock of the ravine and entered into the depths of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
The several tens of Godkings that were originally flying all stopped in mid air. They tried to use their Divine Awareness to penetrate through the Exalted Celestial Mountain. However, the rocks and stones of the Exalted Celestial Mountain was extremely unusual. The Divine Awareness of the several tens of Godkings were unable to penetrate through those rocks and stones.
Many of the Godkings had spread their Divine Awareness out and began to take note of the various locations. Although they were unable to penetrate the rocks of the Exalted Celestial Mountain with their Divine Awareness, they were able to wait for the Back Earth Seal to fly out of the mountain once more.
They waited a long time but there was no movement from the Back Earth Seal at all. It was as if the Back Earth Seal had grown fond of staying within the rocks of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
A Godking of the Putai Clan, Putai Tu, shouted loudly. Immediately, he used a special hiding technique specific to the Putai Clan. The Putai Clan who was proficient in hiding techniques was defeated this time around.
Putai Tu tried using the hiding technique numerous times but he was unable to enter into the rocks of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
“It would seem that we could only use weapons to dig through the Exalted Celestial Mountain.” Jiang Fan frowned. However, once he thought of the enormous size of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. “How tough are the rocks of this Exalted Celestial Mountain?” Jiang Fan looked to the rocks on the surface.
“Bang!” A loud sound was heard. A Godking suddenly used the enormous axe that he held and hacked down toward the mountain rocks. Various small crushed rocks were sent flying. A little hole half a meter long appeared.
Evidently, not only Jiang Fan thought of digging through the Exalted Celestial Mountain, the other Godkings had also thought of it. Furthermore, someone had already started digging.
“I’ve used eighty percent of my attack power but only managed to create a small hole.” That Godking gasped in a low voice.
At this moment, Jiang Fan had realized the toughness of the rocks of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. He then looked to that practically boundless enormous mountain. “With such digging speed, when would we be able to dig through the entire Exalted Celestial Mountain?”
The Exalted Celestial Mountain had descended from the Heavens. Unless they have no other choice, the Godkings also did not dare to break and ruin this Exalted Celestial Mountain.
“Woosh!” “Woosh!” “Woosh!” “Woosh!” …
One by one, Godkings began flying toward all directions.
Yi Feng looked to Jiang Lan and said. “Brother Jiang Lan, that Back Earth Seal currently hid itself in the depths of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. The rocks of this Exalted Celestial Mountain are extremely strange. It is impossible for us to penetrate through it with our Divine Awareness. No one knows where the Back Earth Seal would reappear at. How about the three of us separate and go to three different locations to wait for it? Perhaps we might be lucky and obtain the Back Earth Seal right as it reappears. Once we obtain it, it might even be possible to leave right away.”
What Yi Feng had said was actually what many Godkings were thinking.
If a group of people were to remain in the ravine, then when the Back Earth Seal reappear, then it would likely be the strong individual who would obtain the Back Earth Seal.
This Exalted Celestial Mountain possessed a range of several hundred thousand miles. Its height was several million miles tall. Due to Spatial Freezing, one can not teleport in this enormous floating mountain. However, by flying, it would still take a very long time to move about.
“Brother Yi Feng, there’s no need to rush.” Jiang Lan said with a light smile. “What was meant to be ours would be ours. If it wasn’t meant to be ours, then even if we risk our lives, we would also not be able to obtain it.”
“Moreover, if the three of us separate and wait for the appearance of the Back Earth Seal, then even if one of us were to be lucky and obtain it, he or she might still be intercepted by others. It’s better for the three of us to stay together. If we were to obtain it, then with the three of us joining hands, ordinary people would not be able to snatch it from us.” Jiang Lan looked at Yi Feng.
Yi Feng smiled and said no more. As for Zuo Qiulin beside them, she took a glance at Jiang Lan and also grew silent.
Not many Godkings would care so little about the Back Earth Seal like Jiang Lan. All of the Godkings flew to the various different location of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. They were monitoring everything with their Divine Awareness at all times.
“Shentu, Zhou Huo, do not be too far away from me. If any of the three of us were to obtain the Back Earth Seal, the other two could go and provide assistance to him.” Jiang Fan was standing in the sky. His Divine Awareness was completely spread out.
Both Shentu Yan and Zhou Huo were close to ten thousand miles away from Jiang Fan. The two of them were also carefully observing their surroundings.
While the various Godkings were carefully monitoring and waiting for the emergence of the Back Earth Seal, time seemed to be passing extremely slowly.
A cup of tea’s time seemed like half a year.
“Yi Feng, look at those Godkings, they’re all…” Jiang Lan pointed to some Godkings in the distant with a smile.
Suddenly, an ash-black light directly emerged from beside Jiang Lan’s foot. With rapid speed, it was shot toward Jiang Lan. As if it was a reflex, Jiang Fan caught the ash-black light.
“Pop!” His hand trembled. Jiang Lan looked to his hand.
An ash-black seal was lying on Jiang Lan’s hand. On the surface of this ash-black seal were three special characters. Those characters were something that Jiang Lan did not know at all. However, for some unknown reason, three words naturally appeared into Jiang Lan’s mind… Back Earth Seal.
“Back Earth Seal?”
Jiang Lan was stunned for a moment. Beside him, Yi Feng and Zuo Qiulin also took note of this. The two of them were also stunned.
“Stop looking anymore, let’s leave quickly!” Jiang Lan suddenly managed to react. He immediately sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to the two. Yi Feng and Zuo Qiulin also managed to react. Like three rays of light, the three of them began to rapidly fly toward the foot of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
As for the other Godkings who discovered the Back Earth Seal with their Divine Awareness, they were currently rushing toward Jiang Lan and them from the other locations of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
