A Single Piece Of News
“Senior Zong, you didn’t lie to me? Even the Dragon Clan’s Emissary from the Ascendant Realms has descended?”
Inside the Qingyu Immortal Mansion, Qin Yu was currently communicating with Zong Jue through use of a Transmission Talisman. The arrival of the Devil Realm’s Emissary ‘Blood Devil’ Du Zhong Jun was a startling news, and had spread like wildfire throughout the entire Tenglong Continent, so Qin Yu obviously, too, received the news. Who would have thought that only a few days after the Devil Realm Emissary’s descent, the Dragon Clan’s Emissary would also descend to the Mortal Realm.
“Be at ease, Fang Tian had personally told me this news. Currently, Fang Tian also has a Finest Grade Demon Weapon and a Finest Grade Demon Equipment Tier Battle Clothes. Ah, now he even wants to have another battle with Hua Yan,” Zong Jue did not even have a slightest bit of envy in his tone.
Fang Tian had received treasures from the Dragon Clan’s Emissary.
However, he, Zong Jue, had received from Uncle Lan a piece of treasure that was definitely not inferior.
“Qin Yu, for what reason did you send me a message? I do not believe that you would find me for no particular reason,” Zong Jue replied with a message.
The edges of Qin Yu’s lips unintentionally curved into a smile, and immediately used his Spiritual Awareness to transmit the contents, “There is a matter which is slightly more important. Senior Zong, do you still remember during the time before that Sword Immortal Lan Feng left, he had said that he required my aid to handle an important task?”
“What happened, did he find you?” Zong Jue was intrigued.
Qin Yu smiled in his heart. Find? That Sword Immortal Lan Feng could, in actual fact, be considered nothing more than a separate embodiment of himself.
“Correct, he looked for me. Meanwhile, I also found out a secret that shocked me. It was no wonder that he had initially said my master and him both shared the same origins.”
“Humph, don’t say it first and let me take a guess. Let’s see if I manage to guess correctly?” Zong Jue was already secretly confident.
Yet, Qin Yu had to continue with his pretense, “Senior Zong, please say.”
“That Sword Immortal Lan Feng, is he your Martial Uncle? Moreover, is he Senior Lan’s Younger Martial Brother?” Zong Jue revealed the conjectures that he had kept hidden all along in his mind.
Qin Yu immediately sent a message in reply, “Ah.”
“Haha, did I guess correctly? But, kid, you can also stop pretending. With your intelligence, I think that you should have already made some speculations just from the words ‘Lan Feng’. All right. There is no need to pretend and present an awed expression to coax and make me happy already. Carry on, why did that Martial Uncle of yours look for you?” Zong Jue promptly inquired.
Qin Yu began to say the words that he had planned in his mind.
“I also came to know that Martial Uncle of mine for the first time. He came to let me handle one task. Meanwhile, if I were to handle this task alone, it will really be slightly too difficult for me. That is why I came to seek Senior Zong’s help.”
“What kind of task is that?” Zong Jue continued asking.
Qin Yu slightly smiled in amusement, then used his Spiritual Awareness to write a single word onto the Transmission Talisman: “Auction!”
“Auction? Auction what? Unless it is…… Sundering The Heavens Diagrams?” Zong Jue had a sudden flash of intuition in his mind, and therefore instantly continued to inquire.
“Correct, Senior Zong. Currently, my Younger Martial Uncle urgently requires Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones, which is why he will first auction the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. Of course, the price to be quoted for the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams has to be in units of Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones. He does not want anything else.” Qin Yu promptly sent a reply message. “In other words, the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams will belong to whoever offers the highest amount of Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones.”
Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones!
What Qin Yu really needed were Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones. Qin Yu had thought of it earlier, that even though the Immortal Realm Emissary brought with him quite a number of treasures, he would not have necessarily brought with him many Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones. That was because from the Ascendant Realms’ point of view, there was not really much use for Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones to enter Ni Yang’s Realm.
Yet, even though not necessarily many, the Immortal Realm’s Emissary should probably have at least two, three, or even four pieces of Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones.
After all, having an extra piece meant that the Sword Immortal Puppet’s capabilities will multiply exponentially. Moreover, that Sword Immortal Puppet was Qin Yu’s only greatest assurance to enter Ni Yang’s Realm and plunder its treasures.
Zong Jue was puzzled.
“Little Brother Qin Yu, ah, but that Sundering The Heavens Diagrams is related to entering Ni Yang’s Realm, and even the various major and large factions of the Ascendant Realms had spent great efforts to pierce through the space barriers to send their Emissaries down to the Mortal Realm. Therefore, you can imagine that Ni Yang’s Realm will definitely contain within it many extremely important treasures. Why would that Younger Martial Uncle of yours be willing to auction it away?”
Qin Yu grinned while sending a message in reply, “Please be at ease Senior Zong, even without the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, my sect has the means to enter Ni Yang’s Realm.”
“How is that possible?” Zong Jue was unable to believe.
Qin Yu immediately sent a message in reply, “That method was certainly created by my Uncle Lan personally. The only restriction was that the number of people entering Ni Yang’s Realm is limited. However, if Senior Zong really wants to enter, I can also provide you with one or two slots to enter Ni Yang’s Realm. How about it?”
Qin Yu stared at the Transmission Talisman in his hand. Zong Jue was late in sending a reply message.
“Little Brother Qin Yu, Senior Lan had said that you will be bringing me an opportunity with fate, ah, he was absolutely correct, haha…… I had originally thought that, with the loss of the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, I would no longer be able to enter Ni Yang’s Realm. Who would have thought that ‘there would be a villa hidden behind the trees and flowers’,” Zong Jue sighed in relief.
[Rylain: Zong Jue only said the second part of the entire saying. The complete phrase is actually ‘山重水复疑无路, 柳暗花明又一村’, which literally means ‘Blocked by heavy mountains and rushing rivers seemingly no way forward, who would have thought to have found a hidden villa behind lush trees and beautiful flowers’. What the author meant was, ‘there is always a way out for someone’.]
Qin Yu was startled.
Uncle Lan had said that he would bring Zong Jue an opportunity with fate?
Wasn’t that a little too frightening?
Qin Yu still remembered the words Uncle Lan had said before he left. Ni Yang’s Realm was a test for himself. Only through Ni Yang’s Realm, could he understand his own level of martial cultivation and be able to see Li Er.
“Ni Yang’s Realm.”
Deep within Qin Yu’s heart, surmounting Ni Yang’s Realm was a necessity.
“Initially, many disciples amongst the people of my Qin Clan had died and were injured. Now that Qingxu Sect and Yinyue Palace had been set on fire, it can be considered that a large portion had been avenged. As for the perpetrators Reverend Ming Liang and Wu Kong Xue, I’ll wait until after the auctions, then use the sufficiently received Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones and let the both of them die.”
In his mind, Qin Yu had already sentenced the both of them to death.
“From my point of view, the most important thing right now is how to successfully overcome Ni Yang’s Realm. When entering Ni Yang’s Realm, the most important thing is to have many martial experts on my side. Senior Zong Jue is now on my side, and as for the Sword Immortal Puppet, I can use it as a hidden last resort. However, the Ring of the Black Flame Lord allows me to bring another eight people into Ni Yang’s Realm. Fei Fei, Xiao Hei count as two people. Zong Jue’s side has two or three people. I can still bring another three or four people into Ni Yang’s Realm.”
Qin Yu considered at a shocking speed within his mind.
How to effectively make use of the available slots, and at the same time rope in several allies.
There would be countless dangers within Ni Yang’s Realm. Having more allies would naturally be easier, and hidden resorts should also not be used casually. After all…… the Immortal Realm’s Emissary, the Devil Realm’s Emissary and the Dragon Clan’s Emissary along with other martial experts, who amongst them would not have sufficient tricks kept up their sleeves?
Take for example the Immortal Realm’s Emissary ‘Hua Yan’, those Hundred Pulverising-Thunder Sealed Talismans might seem quite powerful, but Qin Yu did not believe that those were his hidden last resort.
That Immortal Realm’s Yu Huang had exhausted an amount of strength to break open the space barriers between two realms, won’t he surely also provide Hua Yan with several extra powerful hidden ultimate moves?
Suddenly, Qin Yu smiled. “Ah, maybe, in the eyes of the Emissaries from the various realms, the only enemies they had that would snatch their treasures were also the other great Emissaries from various realms. Since I am just an ordinary Xiuzhen Practitioner, I estimate that they would not care much about me,” Qin Yu instead felt happy within his heart. What he wanted was for others to not take notice of him.
Ah, let those Emissaries of the Ascendant Realms battle each other when they arrive at Ni Yang’s Realm, while the ‘weak’ him would just be at one side. It would not be late to take action at the very end.
Qin Yu’s Spiritual Awareness once again felt a few light tugs from the Transmission Talisman. Zong Jue had already sent his second transmission message.
“Oh, Senior Zong Jue, I was slightly distracted earlier,” Qin Yu immediately sent a message in reply. “I am really finding it hard to imagine, that my Uncle Lan, he was actually that powerful, and said that I would bring Senior Zong an opportunity with fate. Isn’t this too unbelievable for people?”
“Senior Lan is absolutely omniscient. Since you had revealed a secret, then let me also tell you one,” said Zong Jue with a pleasant smile.
“Oh?” Qin Yu was a little surprised.
“Senior Lan once gave me a weapon one or two years ago. This weapon suits me perfectly well. With it, I will also be sufficiently confident even if I am to face against Hua Yan. Earlier at Qingxu Mountain, it was only that I did not want to reveal this weapon at that point of time,” Zong Jue confidently stated.
When Qin Yu’s Spiritual Awareness saw this transmitted message, he was also secretly surprised.
Even until today, Qin Yu could not determine the nature of the weapons which Uncle Lan had given Fei Fei and Xiao Hei.
Cloud-Piercing Spear, Black Stick. They were made from peculiar materials. When comparing the level of toughness, even Qin Yu’s Middle Grade Immortal Sword was unable to leave a scratch on their surface.
Then there was the Sword Immortal Puppet. It’s materials were even more peculiar, such that amongst the introductions left behind by Uncle Lan regarding the Sword Immortal Puppet, it was hinted that the Sword Immortal Puppet was virtually indestructible.
Zong Jue continued with a transmitted message, “Humph, I will not use this weapon for now. When I arrive at Ni Yang’s Realm, using this weapon along with my disdain for the speed of all the Ascendant Realms’ Emissaries, who else do I need to fear?”
Qin Yu nodded slightly.
Indeed, using the terrifying speed of the Super Divine Beast Golden-Winged Giant Peng as a measure, even for a First Tier Golden Immortal’s Sword Immortal, and that Blood Devil, there would still be a huge gap in the difference between their speeds.
If Zong Jue were to rely on his speed for evasion, and to entrust in that mysterious weapon for attacks, he would definitely be an extremely terrifying enemy.
“The stronger Zong Jue is, the more advantageous it will be for me,” Qin Yu was secretly happy, and at the same time, he promptly sent a transmission message, “Senior Zong, with regards to my objective for sending you a transmission message this time, I believe that Senior Zong has already understood, and that is regarding the matter of auctioning the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. For the Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones, there are simply too few of them in the Mortal Realm. My Younger Martial Uncle, his targets, are the various Ascendant Realms’ Emissaries.”
“Ascendant Realms’ Emissaries, hmm, I am afraid they might have some Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones.” Zong Jue also agreed, “Immortal Realm, Devil Realm, Dragon Clan and Demon Clan’s Emissaries.”
Qin Yu continued, “Senior Zong, I only have one problem, which is figuring out how to disseminate this news out. That is why……”
“That is why you came looking for me, right?”
“Qin Yu, you can rest easy and be assured. With a single sentence from me, your news will spread throughout the entire Chaotic Astral Sea. Those countless numbers of Loose Practitioners will also naturally know of it, and the countless Loose Practitioners on the Tenglong Continent will also naturally know of it then. As long as it’s a martial expert on the Mortal Realm, none will not know of it,” Zong Jue confidently replied.
He absolutely had that kind of confidence.
Given his position, letting a single news spread throughout the entire Chaotic Astral Sea was not difficult. Meanwhile, the sides of the Loose Immortals, Loose Devils, and combined Loose Demons would definitely have quite a number of people in the Chaotic Astral Sea, who would naturally receive the news.
“Then, I am very grateful to Senior Zong. I think…… the auction event, will be held at the southern part of the Chaotic Astral Sea on Snow Fish Island, on the last day at the end of this year. Senior Zong only needs to disseminate this new out, and Qin Yu will be extremely grateful,” Qin Yu immediately sent a transmission message.
“The last day of the year? Don’t this mean that there will still be another six to seven months?” Zong Jue was puzzled after a slight estimation.
“Indeed it is six to seven months, but this Junior have some matters to attend to in a few months,” Qin Yu simpered.
Roughly in another four months would more or less be the date of his Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations.
To survive past the Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations was indeed top priority. Even if it was the auctioning of the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, that had to be scheduled to after the date of the Heavenly Tribulation.
Along with the descent of the Immortal Realm’s Emissary, Devil Realm’s Emissary, Dragon Clan’s Emissary, and even the imminent descent of the Bestial Clan’s Emissary of the Demon Realm…… the entire Mortal Realm was in a state of balance. That was because the various great Emissaries all understood one point. Any single Emissary amongst them had kept their powerful resorts hidden.
If it wasn’t the very last moment, none of the Emissaries would be willing to engage with another Emissary to a death match. After all…… if they were to fight with each other to the death, that will be to the advantage of the other Emissaries.
That was why……
The Mortal Realm was extremely peaceful.
Yet, Qin Yu and Zong Jue’s exchange of conversation instead, began stirring a series of hurricanes and tsunamis on the peaceful Mortal Realm.
Under a single instruction from Zong Jue, countless Loose Practitioners immediately began disseminating a single piece of news.
“On the very last day at the end of this year, the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams will be auctioned on Snow Fish Island. Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones will be required to partake in the auctions, and nothing else will be accepted. Whoever bids the highest amount of Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones will receive the final piece of the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams!” That piece of news had swept throughout the entire Mortal Realm like whirlwind.
Nearly every great Emissary came to know of it.
Three pieces of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. One was with the Dragon Clan. With the descent of the Dragon Clan’s Emissary to the Mortal Realm, and the capabilities of the Dragon Clan’s Patriarch Fang Tian added to that, no one would even think about robbing that piece of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams.
The second piece of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams was in Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun’s hands. The Blood Devil’s personal capabilities were powerful and brutal. Who knows what powerful resorts were kept hidden by him.
The final piece, was instead snatched away by a martial expert whose powers were not beneath Sword Immortal Hua Yan — Sword Immortal Lan Feng. That Sword Immortal Lan Feng seemed as if he had suddenly appeared and suddenly disappeared. No one knew where he came from, nor where he went. Even if there were to be an attempt to rob that piece, there was nether an address nor location.
That piece which was to be auctioned, according to estimations, would eighty to ninety percent be the piece which was with Sword Immortal Lan Feng.
“It is the final chance, I have to obtain this piece of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams no matter what.” Within Shangtian Palace, Sword Immortal Hua Yan had sharp, shining eyes. “It is only that the person who auctioned it actually only wanted Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones.”
Hua Yan was filled with a lot of regret.
If he had known that Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones were that useful, he would have brought several hundreds in one breath from the Immortal Realm without paying any mind to it. Although Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones were precious, to Yu Huang who was the leader of a super faction, even if it was not Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones but Elemental Spirit Refined Souls, he would be very willing to take them out.
However…… at that point of time, who would have thought that such a day would come to pass? Hua Yan carried with him a few Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones that he had casually brought with him.
“Only a few, so little, will I be able to win the bid for the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams? No way, no way, no matter what I have to obtain that piece.” Hua Yan gritted his teeth, and his entire person disappeared from within Shangtian Palace.
Within the surrounding wilderness.
The person in control of the wilderness, Yu Liang, and his three great Demon subordinates Kong Cao, Xing Shou, Wu Shan had just returned to the wilderness.
“My Lord, we might have left for the Tenglong Continent this time, but we did not really use our full powers,” Wu Shan grumbled softly.
Yu Liang faintly smiled, “This is an order from the Demon Realm’s Emissary. If we can obtain the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, then we obtain it. If we did not manage to obtain it, there will also not be any problems…… because amongst the various Emissaries who had descended to the Mortal Realm, our Emissary of the Demon Realm is definitely the strongest. The Emissary will descend to the Mortal Realm in a few more days. When that time comes, we can directly rob the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams and settle the matter.”
Yu Liang could still remember the confident tone of the Demon Realm’s messenger in his mind.
In actual fact, Yu Liang was also doubtful. “Why was he that confident? On what basis was he certain that the Demon Realm’s Emissary was the strongest Emissary?” No matter what, there was still a few more days. That mysterious Demon Realm’s Emissary who dared to call himself the strongest Emissary was also about to descend.
