Jiang Fan had watched as Qin Yu killed Zhou Xian without the slightest hesitation. Jiang Fan had thought that even if Qin Yu did not kill him, he would humiliate him.
However, unexpectedly, from what Qin Yu had said, it seemed that he was planning to let him leave this damnable place safely.
“Qin Yu, you…” Jiang Fan looked at Qin Yu. He did not know what he should do.
Qin Yu swept his gaze to the surrounding Godkings. He could tell the nervousness and fear in the hearts of all the Godkings present. He then directly announced. “Among you all, Asura Godking Luo Fan, Jiang Fan, Huangfu Yu and the Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha, the four of you can safely leave this place.”
The nineteen Godkings present were all displaying extremely wondrous expressions.
This Huangfu Yu was both delighted but also angry. He was delighted because he managed to save his life. He was angry because… Qin Yu was not letting his brother, Huangfu Lei off.
The four people that were safely let off by Qin Yu all possessed their respective powerful background. Luo Fan was Hou Fei’s master. Jiang Fan was, after all, Jiang Li’s father and Jiang Lan’s older brother. Huangfu Yu had shown grace and kindness to Qin Yu in the past. As for the Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha.
Qin Yu had heard the conversation between all the Godkings through the water screen. He remembered what the Blood Devil Queen had said… “Zi Xin, to be honest, I do not believe that Little Brother Qin Yu would die. Come, let’s go and have a look.”
The reason why the Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha chased over was not to kill Qin Yu at all. Instead, she didn’t believe that Qin Yu would die so easily and had only come to watch.
Qin Yu waved his sleeve…
Immediately, a black channel appeared in a place not far from them. The nineteen Godkings all looked to this black channel. They all understood that this black channel was likely the channel back to the Divine Realm.
“This channel leads to the Divine Realm. Brother Luo Fan, the four of you can enter through it.” Qin Yu directly said.
“Qin Yu, what about my brother Sun Lian and my younger sister Liu Lian?” The Asura Godking Luo Fan did not leave. He instead stared at Qin Yu. He was incapable of giving up Sun Lian and Liu Lian.
Jiang Fan also did not leave. Instead, he looked at Qin Yu and said. “Qin Yu, what about our Floating Snow City’s Jiang Xing? Although not by blood, he possesses a relationship with Li’er like that of siblings.” At this moment, Jiang Fan could only try to relate Jiang Xing with Jiang Li.
“Qin Yu, what about my big brother Huangfu Lei? You won’t be killing him, right?” Huangfu Yu looked to Qin Yu.
Seeing this scene, Qin Yu understood that this group of Godkings, many of them were related to one another. It was likely impossible for him to let a few of them off by themselves.
“Humph, fine, in that case, Brother Luo Fan, Brother Huangfu, I shall tell you all how I plan to punish these Godkings.” Qin Yu’s tone had suddenly turned cold.
The nineteen Godkings present immediately grew tensed.
Qin Yu’s gaze swept past the nineteen Godkings. Coldly, he said. “Other than Luo Fan, Jiang Fan, Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha and Huangfu Yu, for the remaining fifteen Godkings, there are only two options they can choose.”
“The first option is to die, whereas the second is to become servants of my Purple Mystic Mansion.” Qin Yu said with an expressionless face.
The nineteen Godkings were all startled. Even Hou Fei, Jiang Lan, Jiang Li and them were surprised. Earlier, they had been discussing who to kill and who not to kill the entire time. Unexpectedly, Qin Yu actually wanted them to become the Purple Mystic Mansion’s servants.
“Sage Emperors as servants, not bad, not bad.” From the side, Hou Fei’s eyes started to shine.
“Death? Servant?” Shentu Yan frowned. He looked at Qin Yu. “Qin Yu, if we choose to become your Purple Mystic Mansion’s servants, how long must we be your servants? Could it be that we are to be servants forever?”
“It cannot be considered as being forever. It would only last until the descent of the next Exalted Celestial Mountain. At that time, you all can have your freedom back.” Qin Yu lightly smiled and said. “Of course, whether the Exalted Celestial Mountain will descend in the future is still an uncertainty. In other words, it will be six quadrillion years. The fifteen of you, the majority of you will become servants to my Purple Mystic Mansion for six quadrillion years. After six quadrillion years, you shall have your liberty back.”
“The majority?” The Blood Devil Queen Yu Cha looked to Qin Yu. “Qin Yu, are you saying that there are distinctions between the fifteen of them?”
Qin Yu smiled and nodded. “That’s right. Of these fifteen individuals, Huangfu Lei, Duanmu Rufeng, Shentu Yan, Jiang Xing, Zi Xin and the Blood Sea Queen, these six individuals only need to be servants of my Purple Mystic Mansion for a hundred million years before they can have their freedom back.”
Huangfu Lei, Shentu Yan and them heaved a sigh of relief.
To the Godking level experts, a hundred million years cannot be considered a long time. After all, Huangfu Lei and Shentu Yan had lived for twelve quadrillion years already. To be a servant for only a hundred million years, it was not something that they could not bear.
“Come, everyone, please follow me into the Purple Mystic Mansion. Let’s slowly talk about this after we reach the Purple Mystic Mansion, what do you all say?” Qin Yu said with a light smile.
The surroundings of the Purple Mystic Mansion were extremely beautiful. The Godkings followed Qin Yu and them and were walking in the Purple Mystic Mansion. Their hearts also slowly calmed down.
Bringing this group of Godkings with him, Qin Yu led to them a garden. “This is the Flowing Water Garden. There are several tens of pavilions located in the Floating Water Garden. In the future, some of you will be living here.”
Many Godkings suddenly started to think that being a servant at the Purple Mystic Mansion was not too hard to accept.
“Servant? Qin Yu, what do you want us to do as your servants?” Putai Hong suddenly said with his big voice. “I, Putai Hong, am after all the Southeast Sage Emperor. No matter what, don’t you think you can bring about humiliation to me.”
Immediately, Tang Lan, Mu Qin and many other Godkings looked at Qin Yu. To Godking level experts, they would sometimes rather die than to be humiliated.
Qin Yu looked to these Godkings and said with a light smile. “Rest assured, I am not that despicable of a person. Once you all decided to become the servants of my Purple Mystic Mansion, you would only be required to reside in the Purple Mystic Mansion and occasionally provide guidance on the training of the younger generations in the Purple Mystic Mansion or defeat and drive out some people who dared to provoke the dignity of the Purple Mystic Mansion. Other than this, you all are not required to do anything else. Furthermore, to the ordinary people within the Purple Mystic Mansion, I would say to them that you are some people that I have invited over. What do you all think?”
Tang Lan, Mu Qin and the other Godkings looked at each other. Their eyes were all filled with joy.
If Qin Yu were truly to do such a thing, then they would be able to retain their faces.
Only the few people present right now knew that they were the Purple Mystic Mansion’s servants. The outsiders did not know about it. Tang Lan and them were also certain that the other people would not spread such a scandal out.
“Of course, some people within you all are still Sage Emperors. Sometimes, you still need to show yourselves! Being the servants of my Purple Mystic Mansion does not mean that your freedom will be completely restricted. How about this… every ten thousand years, you will have an opportunity to leave the Purple Mystic Mansion for a year. As for the other times, you are all required to stay within the Purple Mystic Mansion.” Qin Yu continued.
Tang Lan, Mu Qin and them felt loosened.
Generally, Sage Emperors rarely needed to show themselves. Since Qin Yu said that in every ten thousand years, they would be able to have a year of freedom. To them, it was already sufficient.
“Good, I’ll accept.” Duanmu Rufeng was the first to voice her acceptance.
Among the fifteen people, six of them only need to be servants for a hundred million years. Duanmu Rufeng was one of the six. She knew that she did not show any mercy towards Qin Yu. For Qin Yu to treat her like so still, it was most definitely because of Duanmu Yu. Thus, Duanmu Rufeng naturally knew when to come and when to leave.
“I also accept.” Mu Qin also voiced his acceptance.
One by one, the Godkings voiced their acceptance. Even the Asura Godking, Jiang Fan, Huangfu Yu and them felt relaxed. Qin Yu merely wanted those Godkings to be in the Purple Mystic Mansion and be ‘servants.’ Furthermore, he was not going to make it public. This had caused them to be extremely satisfied.
“Blood Sea Queen, only you remain.” The Asura Godking looked at the Blood Sea Queen and said.
Indeed, at this moment only the Blood Sea Queen had not voiced her standing.
“Blood Sea Queen, it’s merely a hundred million years. It can’t be that you can’t even agree to something so slight?” Beside her, Ma Tian said.
The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun looked at Qin Yu and said with a downcast voice. “Qin Yu, is it possible for me to speak with you alone?”
“Oh, you want to speak with me alone, sure.” Qin Yu was silent for a moment and then nodded and agreed to it.
Qin Yu and the Blood Sea Queen walked to a little secluded courtyard. The Purple Mystic Mansion with a circumference of close to a thousand miles possessed many quiet secluded locations.
“Blood Sea Queen, go ahead and speak.” Qin Yu looked at the Blood Sea Queen.
“I do not wish to be your Purple Mystic Mansion’s servant.” The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun looked to Qin Yu and firmly said.
Qin Yu was slightly startled.
“Blood Sea Queen, you must know that you have never shown any mercy toward me. Right now, I am only asking you to be my Purple Mystic Mansion’s servant for a hundred million years. Are you telling me that even this cannot do with you? You refuse to choose the path to life and yet decided to chose the path to death?” Qin Yu’s voice grew cold.
It seemed that he had been too merciful.
The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun immediately shook her head and said. “No, that is not my intention. Merely, if you do not have me become your Purple Mystic Mansion’s servant, I would tell you… why I gave up on the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure at the final moment.”
Hearing that, Qin Yu became a bit interested.
In the past, the Blood Sea Queen had used the lives of Zi Xia and Hong Yun to threaten Qin Yu for a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. At the final moment when Qin Yu was about to agree to her demand, this Blood Sea Queen suddenly let the whole thing go. Why was that?
“Good, I’ll accept.”
A hundred million of years being a servant, it was not lacking to not have her. Qin Yu directly accepted her proposal.
The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun displayed a joyful expression. She was only trying this, never did she expect it to succeed.
“Blood Sea Queen, it’s better for you to tell me about it faster.” Qin Yu frowned.
The Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun took a deep breath and then said. “It was because at the final moment, someone had directly sent me a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission telling me not to threaten you, Hou Fei and them.”
“Someone sent a Divine Awareness Voice Transmission to you? You actually did what that person told you? Could it be that, it was an Exalted Celestial?” Qin Yu immediately managed to deduce what happened. “Was it the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial?”
Qin Yu immediately thought of the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial.
Qin Yu had already come to a speculation that this Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial was likely the silver haired silver eyed youngster. If it was him, then everything could easily be explained.
“That’s right, it was an Exalted Celestial. However, it was not the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial. Instead, it was the Unfettered Exalted Celestial who possessed a bit of a friendly relationship with me back then.” At this moment, the Blood Sea Queen was extremely straightforward. She had directly spoken out what had happened.
“Unfettered Exalted Celestial?” Hearing this, Qin Yu was slightly surprised.
It was not the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial that he had anticipated, but instead the Unfettered Exalted Celestial?
This Unfettered Exalted Celestial could be considered someone who had shown consideration for Qin Yu. Back then, on the Mountain Sea Palace, this Unfettered Exalted Celestial had directly appeared before Qin Yu and given him a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
“Why did the Unfettered Exalted Celestial help me? Help Fei Fei?” Qin Yu became confused.
“Blood Sea Queen, how much do you know about this Unfettered Exalted Celestial?” Qin Yu looked at the Blood Sea Queen. “Do you know the reason why he helped me and Hou Fei?”
The Blood Sea Queen muttered. “Before the Unfettered Exalted Celestial became an Exalted Celestial, he had a friendship with me. However, ever since he became an Exalted Celestial, I have only seen him a couple times. Thus, I also do not know why he helped you and Hou Fei.”
Qin Yu lightly nodded.
“Unfettered Exalted Celestial…” Qin Yu became puzzled.
The Purple Mystic Mansion once again returned to the Divine Realm. The Divine Realm appeared exactly the same as before. Merely, not many people in the entire Divine Realm knew that the many of the Godkings, the people standing at the paramount of the Divine Realm, had actually become the servants of the Purple Mystic Mansion.
Inside the Purple Mystic Mansion.
“Big brother, just stay here for a hundred million years. It’s merely a hundred million years, it’ll pass by very quickly.” Huangfu Yu consoled Huangfu Lei.
“Sun Lian, Liu Lian, just stay here and train yourselves. With me in the Asura Sea, no one will be able to do anything to it.” The Asura Godking Luo Fan consoled them.
One by one, the Godkings consoled each other.
Afterwards, Jiang Fan and the Blood Sea Queen flew away from the Purple Mystic Mansion in succession. As for the other Godkings, they remained in the Purple Mystic Mansion and began the period of their life as servants of the Purple Mystic Mansion.
“Brother Luo Fan, please wait a moment.” When the Asura Godking was about to leave, Qin Yu called out for him.
“Qin Yu, is there something that you need?” Luo Fan looked at Qin Yu.
Luo Fan did not harbor a grudge against Qin Yu. After all, they had not shown any mercy towards Qin Yu. For Qin Yu to show so much mercy towards them and also retain the faces of the Godkings, it was the best they could ask for.
“Brother Luo Fan, I knew that you started to instruct Hou Fei because you were entrusted by someone. Is it possible for you to tell me who that person is?” Qin Yu promptly asked.
The Asura Godking was startled. “You ask who he is?”
After being silent for a moment, the Asura Godking nodded and said. “Okay, I’ll tell you. The person who had entrusted me with the task of instructing Hou Fei was the greatest support of our Ascender Powers, one of the Three Great Exalted Celestials, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial!”
‘Unfettered Exalted Celestial, it’s indeed him.” Qin Yu’s eyes shined.
