Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Phillip and Robin
Wearing cyan clothes and stepping on the Gauze Feather Blade, Jiang Lan streaked through the sky and was flying towards Qin Yu and the numerous Godkings. His frightening speed even shook space.
“It’s Jiang Lan!”
Standing beside the Eight Great Sage Emperors, Huangfu Liuxiang was the first one to shout in surprise. Immediately, all of the focus of those Godkings landed on Jiang Lan.
“It’s indeed Jiang Lan. This Jiang Lan actually came out by himself.” Duanmu Yun was pleasantly surprised.
The eyes of the Asura Godking Luo Fan and the Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun both started to shine. Their gazes were focused on Jiang Lan who was rapidly flying over. They had both begun to feel restless.
The two of them were both confident in handling Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan flew over to Qin Yu’s side. He smiled and nodded to Qin Yu. “Little Yu.” Qin Yu was extremely confused. Uncle Lan ought to be training in the New Cosmos. It had only been a short while, how come he had come out already?
Regardless of whether it was Qin Yu or the other Godkings, they were all thinking that it had only been half a day since the battle for the Back Earth Seal at the Exalted Celestial Mountain. However, Jiang Lan himself had actually already trained for several tens of years. Merely, Qin Yu had thought that even if Uncle Lan had trained for several tens of years, it would still be unlikely for him to increase his strength greatly in merely several tens of years.
“Jiang Lan, hand over the Back Earth Seal right away!” Duanmu Yun was the first to shout at him.
Whether it was Duanmu Yun or Jiang Fan, the two of them were people with ambitions. Otherwise, the two of them would not be leading a faction each and fighting each other in the Divine Realm for so many years.
Both Duanmu Yun and Jiang Fan wished to become Exalted Celestials. Naturally, they wanted to obtain the Back Earth Seal, one of the three seals, greatly.
“Second brother, hand over the Back Earth Seal. Otherwise, you’ll only be harming yourself!” Jiang Fan said with a cold expression.
Jiang Lan took a glance at his big brother Jiang Fan. He then looked at Zhou Huo, Duanmu Yun and the other Sage Emperors. His expression suddenly turned ugly. That was because Jiang Lan had recalled the time when Zuo Qiumei was surrounded and killed by these Sage Emperors who had joined hands.
Compared to back then, the scene now resembled it greatly. In fact, the spectacle had become even greater.
“You want me to hand over the Back Earth Seal? That cannot be done.” Jiang Lan said indifferently.
“Jiang Lan, even if you don’t want to have it over, you’ll still have to hand it over!” The Asura Godking Luo Fan said coldly. At the same time, a Blood Ruler appeared in his hand. It was the Blood Ruler Life Sunderer.
“Since you’ve come, then you can forget about leaving.” The Blood Sea Queen also said with a cold smile.
The various Godkings all began to show killing intent in their eyes. Even those ordinary Godkings started having confidence now. When facing Qin Yu, they did not have any certainty. However, when facing Jiang Lan… once they join hands, even if Jiang Lan possessed three heads and six arms, he would still be killed.
Suddenly, two burst of sharp aura suddenly started surging from the front and back.
Only at this moment did the Eight Great Sage Emperors, Asura Godking, Blood Sea Queen and the others recall the black gowned Qin Yu before them and the cyan gowned Qin Yu behind them.
“You wish to kill my Uncle Lan? Humph, I shall see if you have the life to do that.”
Qin Yu said coldly. He immediately brandished his Divine Spear Waning Snow and was about to attack. However, beside him, Jiang Lan actually extended his hand and stopped Qin Yu. Qin Yu was startled. He was completely puzzled.
Why did Uncle Lan stop him?
Qin Yu turned around to look to Jiang Lan. Jiang Lan fixed his gaze on Qin Yu. With a smile, he said. “Little Yu, these Godkings have come for me. Allow me to handle them.”
“Uncle Lan, by yourself?” Qin Yu was shocked.
Not only Qin Yu, even the Godkings in the distance felt baffled by these words. They had all experienced Jiang Lan’s strength before. They admit that Jiang Lan’s strength was powerful. However, he was only at the most comparable to one or two Sage Emperors. If he were to fight against that many Godkings, then he would definitely be killed.
This Jiang Lan, was he trying to court death?
Many Godkings all looked at Jiang Lan in confusion.
At this moment, Jiang Lan said to Qin Yu via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “Little Yu, although it has only been half a day outside, I have already trained for several tens of years in the New Cosmos. In these several tens of years, I have already reached a higher step in the comprehension of the Temporal Laws.”
Reached a higher step?
Uncle Lan had originally already reached the limit of Time Acceleration. In that case, a step higher would be…
In an instant, Qin Yu managed to understand. However, when he thought of the answer, Qin Yu became even more unwilling to believe it. It had only been several tens of years. However, Uncle Lan had managed to comprehend Time Stop. Now, in the Divine Realm, other than Uncle Lan, only the Asura Godking Luo Fan and the Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun managed to comprehend Time Stop.
“Uncle Lan, did you really, did you really manage to comprehend Time Stop?”
“There’s no need for you to not believe me.” Jiang Lan said to Qin Yu with a smile. “Little Yu, when have I ever lied to you? I have indeed comprehended Time Stop. All of these people have come for me. You only need to remain at the side and watch as I handle this matter. If I am truly unable to handle this, it would not be too late for you to help then.”
Qin Yu hesitated for a moment and then nodded.
“Okay. Uncle Lan, be careful.” Qin Yu possessed absolute confidence in Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan smiled and nodded to Qin Yu.
After that, Qin Yu started to coldly look at the Eight Great Sage Emperors and the other Godkings. He coldly humphed and flew to the side. The black gowned Qin Yu flew over to a location close to the Asura Godking. As for the cyan gowned Qin Yu, he too had moved. He flew over to a location close to the Blood Sea Queen.
When the Godkings saw that Qin Yu and Jiang Lan were exchanging gazes, they all guessed that Qin Yu and Jiang Lan were likely talking with one another through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. The Godkings had originally thought that Qin Yu would stop Jiang Lan from throwing his life away. However, to their surprise… Qin Yu actually moved to the side. From what it seemed, Qin Yu was actually persuaded by Jiang Lan.
Jiang Fan, Zhou Huo and them exchanged gazes.
“Brother Jiang Fan, this second brother of yours is actually planning to take us all on by himself? Do you perhaps understand why that is the case?” Zhou Huo asked Jiang Fan through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
Jiang Fan shook his head.
“I think, I think that it might be because he wants to settle his own matter himself. This is the only possible explanation.” Replied Jiang Fan. This answer was something that Jiang Fan himself found unconvincing.
Not a single Godking among all these present at the scene could believe that in merely ‘half a day,’ Jiang Lan would go from a state where he had originally only comprehended Time Acceleration to the limit, to a super expert who managed to comprehend Time Stop.
At this moment, Jiang Lan coldly looked to the Eight Great Sage Emperors. “Don’t you all want the Back Earth Seal? If you have the ability to kill me, then the Back Earth Seal will naturally become yours.” Holding the Gauze Feather Blade in his hand, Jiang Lan coldly looked at the various Godkings.
The Godkings were all communicating with one another through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. At the same time, they were also paying attention to Qin Yu.
The current Qin Yu, his true body, the black gowned Qin Yu, was located opposing the Asura Godking. As for the cyan gowned Qin Yu, he was located near the Blood Sea Queen.
“Brother Luo Fan, I do not wish to fight against you. I hope that you would not force our weapons to collide with one another.” Qin Yu looked to the Asura Godking and said via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission. “You merely need to quietly remain there and watch.”
The Asura Godking started to frown. He took a glance at Qin Yu.
Immediately after, the Asura Godking started smiling.
“You are this confident of Jiang Lan?” The Asura Godking ridiculed.
Qin Yu lightly smiled and maintained his silence.
“Blood Sea Queen, during my Uncle Lan’s fight against those Godkings, I hope that you do not join in. As long as you do not act, I too will not act. If you were to act, then I would have no choice but to stop you.” At the same time, Qin Yu had also sent a voice transmission to the Blood Sea Queen.
His clone, the cyan gowned Qin Yu, was firmly fixed upon the Blood Sea Queen.
The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun’s heart was filled with anger. She knew very well of how powerful this clone was. This clone’s body’s toughness was comparable to hers. Furthermore, the clone was also capable of teleportation! If she were to truly start fighting the clone, then she would likely find it extremely problematic too.
“Humph, even if I do not act, your Uncle Lan will still die.” Said the Blood Sea Queen angrily through Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
“There is no need for you to worry about that.”
The black gowned Qin Yu and the cyan gowned Qin Yu had reached a deadlock with the two super experts, the Asura Godking and the Blood Sea Queen respectively. As for Jiang Lan, he was facing the Eight Great Sage Emperors as well as the other Godkings.
“Not knowing when to give up. Attack!” Duanmu Yun said via Divine Awareness Voice Transmission.
The other seven Sage Emperors all nodded.
In an instant…
The great formation array the Eight Great Sage Emperors formed suddenly started to scatter. They separated into two groups, Huangfu Yu, Putai Hong, Shentu Yan, Tang Lan and Mu Qin, the five Sage Emperors who controlled the Origin Spiritual Energies of the five elements, and the three Sage Emperors Jiang Fan, Duanmu Yun and Zhou Huo.
The Eight Great Sage Emperors had split into two group formations.
Without the slightest hesitation, the Eight Great Sage Emperors proceed to attack Jiang Lan. The Five Elements Origin Formation Array was lead by Huangfu Yu. With a wave of Huangfu Yu’s hand, a five colored blade ray appeared. The blade ray directly proceed to hack toward Jiang Lan.
Jiang Fan, Duanmu Yun and Zhou Huo also joined hands. Led by Zhou Huo, he waved his hand and two rays of sword-shaped Origin Energies proceeded to fly towards Jiang Lan.
“This Jiang Lan, his strength is much inferior compared to Qin Yu. If he were to receive one of those attacks, then he would likely be seriously injured. Once he becomes gravely injured, I will be able to directly kill him.” A cold and fierce light flashed through Huangfu Liuxiang’s eyes.
Not only Huangfu Liuxiang, the other Godkings had all flown over from the sides at practically the same time.
They did not proceed to confront Jiang Lan directly. Instead, they were circling the sides. These Godkings were waiting for Jiang Lan to become injured. Once Jiang Lan got injured, they would swarm in to kill him and snatch away the Back Earth Seal.
“Catching the fish by the neck?”
Jiang Lan lightly laughed. Facing the five colored blade ray that was approaching him, he stepped onto the Gauze Feather Blade and reached the limit of his speed. He did an arc and flew over the five colored blade ray from the side.
The five colored blade ray also turned around. Furthermore, the speed of the five colored blade ray was much faster than Jiang Lan’s speed. When Jiang Lan took his curve, the direction where he was flying toward just so happened to have a group of ascender Godkings.
Those ordinary Godkings were separated into their own groups. For the most part, the Godkings of the Ascender Powers were close to each other and the Godkings of the Eight Great Divine Families were close to each other.
“Not good, Jiang Lan is flying over!”
Godking Ao Tu, Goking Zi Xing, Godking Yu Cha, Floating Mist Godking, Widespread Laws Godking, Word Searcher Godking, Godking An Xun, Godking Liu Lian, Godking Sun Lian and the many other Godkings who were originally planning to obtain small benefits from the sidelines were all startled.
However, shortly after, these ascender Godkings all gathered together and prepared to handle Jiang Lan.
They were not worried in the slightest. With this many Godkings of the Ascender Powers gathered here, how could they possibly fear Jiang Lan who had only managed to comprehend Time Acceleration to the peak? These people all took out their own respective Spiritual Treasure weapons.
The five colored blade ray was in the front and the two sword rays were following behind. The flying speed of the blade ray and sword rays were much faster than Jiang Lan’s. In merely the blink of an eye, they were about to reach Jiang Lan’s body. And at this moment, Jiang Lan was several tens of meters from the Godkings of the Ascender Powers.
Godking Ao Tun, Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha and the other Godkings only saw Jiang Lan’s lips slightly moved.
In an instant, the entire world stopped emitting any sound. Wind stopped moving. Clouds stopped drifting. Even the five colored blade ray and the two sword rays which were shot out by the Sage Emperors stopped in their tracks.
Furthermore… not a single one of them were able to move anymore!
Seeing the five colored blade ray and the two sword rays that stopped moving…
“Time, Time Stop…”
Jiang Fan was stunned.
Zhou Huo was stunned.
All of the Eight Great Sage Emperors were stunned. The ten Godkings from the Ascender Powers were also stunned. The hidden Godkings were all looking at this scene with foolish expressions. Even the Asura Godking Luo Fan and the Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun who knew TIme Stop had grown silent.
The Divine Realm now had another Godking who knew Time Stop!
Although the ten Godkings from the Ascender Powers were incapable of moving, Jiang Lan was still able to move.
The dark blade ray turned into a beautiful curve as it streaked through the sky.
Jiang Lan’s movement was extremely graceful. The Gauze Feather Sword in his hand gracefully slashed toward the Godkings of the Ascender Powers. However, the Eight Great Sage Emperors immediately woke back up from being stunned. They immediately increased their Origin Energies. At the same time, the ten ascender Godkings also began to sharply increase their energies.
The air began to flow once more. The sound resumed once more. Even the five colored blade ray and the two sword rays began to move once more.
Time Stop had been broken through.
Merely, in the period of time that Time Stop was active, four of the ten Ascender Godkings had died and one seriously injured. At this moment, the Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha was lingering with fear. Had the Time Stop not been broken through by the last moment, then she would likely had also died.
The corpses of the four Godkings sprayed blood in the air and then fell to the ground.
The four Godkings that were killed by Jiang Lan were respectively Godking Au Tun of the Mount Blood Devil, Godking An Xun of the Asura Sea and Widespread Laws Godking and the Word Searcher Godking of the Dual Domain Island.
The Asura Godking Luo Fan suddenly roared angrily.
As for the black gowned Qin Yu who stood opposing the Asura Godking, his gaze immediately grew sharper. His right hand that held the Divine Spear Waning Snow also started to tighten its grip.
