Time passed. In the blink of an eye, close to five years had passed since the birth of Hou Fei’s two children. In this close to five years period of time, that the Unfettered Exalted Celestial had come to the Purple Mystic Mansion several tens of times.
“Senior Unfettered Exalted Celestial, Fei Fei is in the garden to the back accompanying his two children.” Qin Yu said to the Unfettered Exalted Celestial with a smile.
“Thanks.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial lightly smiled to Qin Yu.
Seeing the back view of the Unfettered Exalted Celestial as he entered past the garden’s entrance, Qin Yu sighed in his heart. In this period of time close to five years, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial had never given up. However, no matter what he did, Hou Fei would refuse to pay any attention to him.
Contrary to him, Hou Fei’s two children liked the Unfettered Exalted Celestial.
“Brother Yu, don’t bother thinking about it anymore. Fei Fei also knows what he is doing.” Beside him, Jiang Li smiled to Qin Yu and said.
Qin Yu smiled and nodded.
“Oh, that’s right. Brother Yu, your New Cosmos ought to be almost complete, right?” Jiang Li suddenly mentioned this matter. Hearing that, Qin Yu smiled. He had been monitoring the development of the New Cosmos the entire time.
“I reckon there’s still another year till the New Cosmos finishes forming.” Qin Yu said with a smile.
Jiang Li displayed a joyous smile on her face: “When Brother Yu’s New Cosmos is completed, there will likely be a way to assist Qin Shuang. Sigh, that child is more and more rebellious now.”
Qin Shuang’s cultivation speed was too slow. Furthermore, both his father and mother were Godkings. On top of that, his older brother’s cultivation speed was also extremely fast.
Thus, Qin Shuang heart was naturally feeling very unwell. Over the course of a long period of time, it was also normal for Qin Shuang to become rebellious. Merely, there was nothing Qin Yu and Jiang Li could do for the rebellious Qin Shuang.
“It will all be well in another year.” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
After about an hour, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial finally walked out from the rear garden. At this moment, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial had a joyous smile on his face. However, Qin Yu knew very well that the Unfettered Exalted Celestial was only happy because he was playing with the two children.
Over the course of nearly five years, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial had practically given up on trying to make Hou Fei recognize him as his father.
“Qin Yu, I shall take my leave, farewell.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial said with a smile.
With the Unfettered Exalted Celestial’s ability, it was extremely easy for him to come and go about the Purple Mystic Mansion. However, every single time he came to the Purple Mystic Mansion or was about to leave from it, he would always offer words of greeting or departure to Qin Yu. That was because Qin Yu was, after all, the master of this place.
Qin Yu and Jiang Li immediately stood up.
“Oh, that’s right. Qin Yu, there is a matter that I must inform you.” The Unfettered Exalted Celestial suddenly remembered something. He looked to Qin Yu and said with a smile. “In roughly three to four months, the new Exalted Celestial will be born.”
“The new Exalted Celestial will be born? In three to four months?” Qin Yu and Jiang Li were startled.
Qin Yu immediately thought of a lot of things. For the time to be this certain while the three portions of the Living World Seal in the hands of Jiang Fan and Luo Fan. It was difficult for either of them to obtain all three seals.
“Could it be that this new Exalted Celestial would be determined by the person standing behind the Exalted Celestials?” Qin Yu thought in his heart.
“That is all that I wished to inform you. Well then, farewell.” After that, the Unfettered Exalted Celestial directly teleported away from the Purple Mystic Mansion. As for Qin Yu and Jiang Li who had obtained this information, they were both extremely excited.
Qin Yu immediately decided to gather Uncle Lan, Zuo Qiulin and them.
This information was something that he must tell them.
The news of the new Exalted Celestial’s birth being only a short three to four months away had indeed shocked the Godkings in the Purple Mystic Mansion. However, compared to them, the other Godkings of the Divine Realm, for example the Asura Godking, did not even know about this.
Regardless of whether it was the Asura Godking Luo Fan or the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City’s Jiang Fan, they were both wholeheartedly studying the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure portions.
In the misty space that Jiang Fan had created, time was accelerated by five thousand times. To Jiang Fan, maintaining a space that accelerated time by five thousand times for a long period of time was also relatively hard.
Sitting cross-legged in the air, two seals were floating before Jiang Fan. One was gray and the other was gold.
After training for all these years, Jiang Fan had merely managed to attain a slight improvement in Time Acceleration. As for Time Stop, it could be said that he did not obtain any comprehension of that.
To become an Exalted Celestial through comprehending Time Reversal could be said as being impossible for Jiang Fan.
Months passed. In a blink of an eye, three months had passed.
Inside the Purple Mystic Mansion.
“Big brother, according to what that Unfettered Exalted Celestial had said, the birth of the new Exalted Celestial should be soon. It might even be possible for the new Exalted Celestial to be born today.” Hei Yu said in the side.
Qin Yu and Jiang Li smiled.
“Xiao Hei, could it be that you wish to become the new Exalted Celestial?” Qin Yu looked to Hei Yu with a smile on his face.
“I am not interested in becoming the new Exalted Celestial. I am merely curious as to who the new Exalted Celestial would be after all these Godkings have died through the years.” Hei Yu said with a smile.
Suddenly, a loud rumble was heard. After the rumble, suddenly…
The sound throughout the entire Divine Realm had disappeared. For those who have not reached the Godking level, even the movement of their souls stopped. Only the Godkings and the Exalted Celestials were capable of thinking at this moment.
Suddenly, a beautiful musical sound played in the minds of the Godkings.
All of the Godkings in the Divine Realm appeared to have been hypnotized by the music. One by one, they soared to the sky. After that, they all flew toward the direction of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
No, there was still a Godking in the Divine Realm that remained sober.
Qin Yu’s soul that had fused with the Cosmic Origin Energy and also the New Cosmos’s Cosmic Origin was extremely clear-headed. Although the music was peculiar and beautiful, it was unable to shake Qin Yu.
“Strange, strange.” Qin Yu’s New Cosmos’s Spatial Energy had covered the entire Divine Realm.
“The entire Divine Realm seems to be under Time Stop. Only the Godkings were not restricted by it.” Qin Yu discovered that the wind, the waves of the ocean, all the Deities, Heavenly Deities and demonic beasts of the Divine Realm had become motionless. Even their gazes had turned lifeless.
It was clear that their souls had stopped moving at this moment. They no longer had any ability.
Qin Yu saw Jiang Li, Zuo Qiulin, Hei Yu, Yi Feng, Jiang Lan, Chehou Yuan, Jiang Xing, Tang Lan, Putai Hong… all of the Godkings of the Purple Mystic Mansion had actually soared into the sky.
“All of the Godkings are being controlled?” Qin Yu was astonished.
Qin Yu immediately decided to feign being controlled too. He followed the various Godkings and also flew into the sky. Under the observation of Qin Yu’s New Cosmos’s Spatial Energy, he discovered that the other Godkings in the Divine Realm; the Utmost Northern Region’s Floating Snow City’s Jiang Fan, the depths of the Western Sea’s Blood Sea Queen, the Asura Sea’s Asura Godking, the Eastern Sea’s Mu Yu… and various other Godkings also started flying into the sky from their various locations.
Practically simultaneously, all of the Godkings teleported to outside of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. Qin Yu followed them and also teleported to the outside of the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
He looked to to the millions of mile tall scarlet Exalted Celestial Mountain before him and thought in his heart. “The entire Divine Realm appears to have been under Time Stop. However, none of the Godkings are aware of it. They are even capable of teleporting. Why is this? What was that music that wondrous and was able to control even the Godkings?”
Qin Yu was puzzled.
At this moment, all of the Godkings in the Divine Realm, a total of over thirty of them, were gathered outside of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. Other than Qin Yu, all the other Godkings were hypnotized.
The red membrane, the ‘Godking’s Prison,’ that covered the entire Exalted Celestial Mountain suddenly disappeared. All of the rest of the Godkings began to fly toward the ravine where the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron was located at.
Qin Yu naturally also followed them.
Once all of the Godkings flew into the ravine, the scarlet membrane once again appeared and covered the Exalted Celestial Mountain.
Right at the moment when the scarlet membrane reappeared, the music that was sounding through the minds of the Godkings suddenly faded away. The thirty plus Godkings present had all become sober.
“This, what is happening?” Many Godkings cried out in surprise.
“What a great method.” Qin Yu gasped in his heart. All of the people in the Divine Realm that have not reached the Godking level had all been put into a state of ‘Time Stop.’ Furthermore, even the movement of their souls stopped.
In the entire Divine Realm, it was likely that only these Godkings and the Exalted Celestials were awake.
“This is the Exalted Celestial Mountain. It would seem that, like last time, all of us Godkings have been brought here. This also signified that the new Exalted Celestial is about to be born.” Sneered the Blood Sea Queen Xue Yun.
The thirty plus Godkings were standing at various locations through the ravine. The Godkings from six quadrillion years ago have all experienced this before. Soon, all of the Godkings calmed down.
“Exalted Celestial; big brother, who do you think will be the new Exalted Celestial?” At this moment, Hei Yu was also extremely excited.
“We’ll know soon.” Qin Yu said with a smile.
However, at this moment, the amount of Godkings that were capable of smiling in the ravine were extremely few. That was because practically all of them were feeling tense. They were all hoping that it would be they who would be the new Exalted Celestial.
The millions upon millions of Deities and the several hundred thousands of Heavenly Deities were all in a state of silence. On the enormous mountain of several million miles high that floated in the center of the Divine Realm, On the scarlet colored Exalted Celestial Mountain, all of the Godkings were eagerly waiting.
The Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron was motionless like before.
“Blue Sky Seal!” Luo Fan suddenly shouted out impatiently.
All of the Godkings in the ravine looked over to Luo Fan. A cyan colored seal flew out from Luo Fan’s body and started flying toward the direction of the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron. There was a Godking who had a fast reaction and immediately flew toward the Blue Sky Seal and grabbed it.
“Bang!” Right after he touched the Blue Sky Seal, that Godking was immediately jolted by it and started to vomit blood.
Luo Fan also rushed over. He also grabbed at the Blue Sky Seal. However, after a low and downcast voice, Luo Fan was jolted flying backwards by the seal. His complexion turned deathly white and blood started to drip down from the corner of his mouth.
“What is happening? I have already refined the Blue Sky Seal.” Luo Fan was completely at a loss.
All of the Godkings present were in a state of confusion. The Blue Sky Seal that had been refined by Luo Fan, why was it not accepting his control? This was something that they had never seen before.
During the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain last time around, the Unfettered Godking had received the secret assistance of the Floating Feathers Exalted Celestial and directly obtained the various portions of the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure. Thus, he naturally ended up becoming the new Exalted Celestial. However, this time was different. The three portions of the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure were in the possession of two individuals.
“This is interesting.” Qin Yu looked to the Blue Sky Seal that was floating above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron and started smiling.
The floating Blue Sky Seal would faintly give off a cyan light. However, it would not allow any Godking to touch it.
“Back Earth Seal!”
A gray seal flew out from Jiang Fan’s body. How could Jiang Fan possibly accept his treasure flying away? Even with the lesson taught by the precedent of the Asura Godking, Jiang Fan still eagerly grabbed the Back Earth Seal.
“Bang!” Without exception, Jiang Fan was seriously injured with a jolt.
The other Godkings did not do anything. They merely watched as the Back Earth Seal flew toward the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron. In the end, the Back Earth Seal also started to float above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron beside the Blue Sky Seal.
“Brother Jiang Fan, I truly never would imagine that the Back Earth Seal actually ended up in your hands.” Shentu Yan exclaimed.
“All that’s left is the All People Seal now.” Many people looked toward Qin Yu. That was because they knew that Qin Yu had obtained the All People Seal.
The All People Seal that was giving off a golden light flew out from Jiang Fan’s body. This time around, he did not try to go and grab it. That was because he already knew that he cannot stop it. Many Godkings were shocked to find out that both the Back Earth Seal and the All People Seal were actually in Jiang Fan’s possession.
Blue Sky Seal, Back Earth Seal and the All People Seal!
These three seals were beside each other and floating above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron while emitting brilliant light in all directions.
“It has been close to forty years since the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain. Now, the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, Living World Seal, is about to be born. The new Exalted Celestial will also be born.” A cold voice sounded through the entire Exalted Celestial Mountain.
All of the Godkings were startled and became silent.
“Big brother, who is it that’s speaking?” Hei Yu asked Qin Yu through voice transmission.
It was not only Hei Yu, the other Godkings were also puzzled. However, they all knew that the person who spoke was likely related to how they were all brought to the Exalted Celestial Mountain without their knowledge.
“The gathering of the three seals, Living World Seal, be born!” That voice was extremely cold.
The light being emitted by the three floating seals soared. Cyan, gray and golden color lights were spinning about non stop. In the end, they gradually fused together. All of the Godkings present had their eyes fixed upon these three seals.
In the end, the light gradually grew weaker. A palm sized seal appeared above the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron. The palm sized seal was quietly floating; only a faint layer of hazy light surrounded its surface.
Living World Seal!
Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, Living World Seal.
The eyes of the Godkings present had all became slightly red.
“The Living World Seal is born. The new Exalted Celestial shall be born too. Among all the Godkings present in the Divine Realm, the person who possesses the most qualification to become the new Exalted Celestial is…”
All of the Godkings held their breaths. They were all nervous and started trembling. Their palms were also sweaty. They were all waiting for the announcement of the name…
“Godking Chehou Yuan.” The cold voice said the name. However, this name had shocked Luo Fan, Jiang Fan, Blood Sea Queen and the many other Godkings present.
“Chehou Yuan, how could it be him?” Jiang Fan, Luo Fan, the Blood Sea Queen and them were unable to believe it. “We have fought with our life on the line for all these years, how could it end up being him who would become an Exalted Celestial in the end?”
They fought for that many years it was even that many Godkinds had died. However, in the end, the person who was to become the new Exalted Celestial was someone who did not participate in the battle? Why did they fight for all these years then?
Everything was a hopeless illusion. In the end, everything was for naught!
At this moment, Chehou Yuan was still in a state of shock. However, the Living World Seal directly flew to the top of Chehou Yuan’s head. Three colored light was emitted from the Living World Seal and enveloped Chehou Yuan’s entire body. At the same time, all of the Godkings were able to sense that the location where Chehou Yuan was at was undergoing a Time Acceleration.
“What an astonishing Time Acceleration. It’s at the very least a hundred million times.” The rate of the Time Acceleration had caused Qin Yu to quake in fear.
All of the Godkings were looking at Chehou Yuan who was enveloped by the three colored light. They had fought for that many years but the person who ended up becoming the Exalted Celestial was Chehou Yuan, the last person to return to the Divine Realm.
At this moment, Qin Yu did not know that in the space above the DIvine Realm, the Thunder Punishment Exalted Celestial was waiting. He was waiting for Chehou Yuan to completely become an Exalted Celestial. The moment when Chehou Yuan becomes an Exalted Celestial would be the moment when he shall attack Qin Yu.
