    Chapter 242: Godfiend Temple

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    "What? Third Firmament?"

    "The Highwarrior family's Wing just came of age and he has already reached the third Firmament?" The parents of the other youths looked at Qin Yun in astonishment. They were all descendants of the Connate Godfiends. Only by persistently cultivating for a long time, perhaps as long as a few centuries, would they reach the third Firmament of the Mortal realm. However, a fourteen-year-old would be considered a genius among Connate Godfiend descendants if he reached the third Firmament of the Mortal realm!

    Qin Yun replied, "After I was severely injured, I gained new insights while on the border of life and death."

    "Yes, Wing nearly died from his injuries."

    "We saved him."

    The other four youths said immediately.

    The parents present all came from the large family clans of the city. All of them knew! Struggling on the border of life and death was very effective but it was similarly very risky.

    "Haha, my Wing has already reached the third Firmament. Let's bring him to the Godfiend Temple first." The muscular man said with a laugh. He immediately led Qin Yun and his wife onto a carriage. The beast pulling the carriage was a four-legged, white-furred mutate. There was a driver on the carriage who sent the beast flying rapidly forward with a shake of the ropes.

    "Let's go. We should go to the Godfiend Temple as well, to take a look."

    "It's been a long while since our Fire Phoenix City has seen a fourteen-year-old reach the third Firmament of the Mortal realm. Let's all go."

    "Father, Wing's sword skills are very impressive."

    "Oh? Very impressive?"

    The soldiers stored the spoils of war that the young Godfiend descendants had brought back. As for the four youths themselves, they followed their parents up a path that traveled straight to the Godfiend Temple.

    ...

    On the carriage, Qin Yun looked at the mutated beast in front of him. He sighed secretly, "About ten thousand years have passed since the birth of the world. The Heaven and Earth spiritual energies are still rich, richer than my homeworld by a hundred times. In such an environment, many fascinating mutated beasts can be produced. This Snow-treading Beast seems to be considered common in this era but in my homeworld, there are only regular animals like cows, horses, and goats.

    "With such rich Heaven and Earth spiritual energies, cultivation becomes much easier. Furthermore, with my present identity as a Connate Godfiend descendant, my talent in cultivating the Godfiend Dharmic formulations will be even more astounding. I can match Connate Golden Cores at fourteen. But in this world, this is still only considered a basic genius."

    "The third Firmament of the Mortal realm is rather common. The ones that can step into the Godfiend realm are still few and far between."

    To go from the third Firmament of the Mortal realm to the first Firmament of the Godfiend realm was equivalent to a Connate Golden Core reaching the level of immortal.

    Such a breakthrough was equally difficult for Godfiend descendants.

    They were capable of reaching the third Firmament of the Mortal realm because of their bloodline! But to reach the Godfiend realm, one needed to comprehend the Heavenly Dao. To the Godfiend descendants that usually valued strength and speed, it was too difficult to comprehend the mysticism in offensive moves or wonders of the Heavenly Dao!

    "We have arrived at the Godfiend Temple," said Wing's father, Highwarrior Ambition, loudly.

    Godfiend descendants had very unique names.

    They would place their ancestral Connate Godfiend's name in front of their own names. And after their Coming of Age ceremony, they would take on another name and place it behind. For example, Highwarrior Ambition! Firephoenix Tianyin!

    And the greatest pursuit of Godfiend descendants was the day they would cultivate to the third Firmament of the Godfiend realm, gaining strength that could match Connate Godfiends. That way, their own names would become a Godfiend surname.

    For example, if Highwarrior Ambition reached the third Firmament of the Godfiend realm, his name would possess wondrous might. He could create a Godfiend family clan and his descendants would take on Ambition as a surname. Of course, Wing's father, Highwarrior Ambition, was merely at the third Firmament of the Mortal realm. He was but one of the more ordinary members among the many Connate Godfiend family clans.

    "Godfiend Temple?" Qin Yun looked over.

    Humanity had nine main cities. Each city had a Magus God Temple and Godfiend Temple. The Magus God Temple was a sacred land for magi in every city. The Godfiend Temple was similarly the sacred land of the many Connate Godfiend family clans.

    Highwarrior Ambition and his wife disembarked the carriage with Qin Yun and walked through the Godfiend Temple's humongous door.

    "Ambition, why are you here?" The guard at the door was also a Connate Godfiend descendant. He too was at the third Firmament of the Mortal realm.

    "I'm bringing Wing to meet the Elders," said Highwarrior Ambition loudly and clearly.

    "Meet the Elders? Ah, has Wing already reached the third Firmament?"

    "It's true! He has indeed reached the third Firmament." Two other guards immediately determined Qin Yun's strength. Although the city was large, there were only a total of fifteen Connate Godfiend families in Fire Phoenix City. It was difficult for Godfiend descendants to reproduce so there were not many Godfiend descendants. Everyone knew each other very well.

    Qin Yun continued following his parents obediently.

    In truth, he had long reached the Seamless realm. His soul was fully capable of perfectly converging his aura, preventing others from determining his strength. But the Godfiend descendants in this world had imperfect control of energy. They naturally did not converge their auras so if he deliberately converged his, it would raise the suspicions of his elders.

    Soon.

    After traveling across a huge square in the Godfiend Temple, they came in front of an ancient and unadorned building.

    "Elder." Highwarrior Ambition stood respectfully outside and said, "Wing has broken through to the third Firmament during the Coming of Age ceremony. I have brought him here specially to meet you."

    "Oh?" A hunchbacked elder with long brows walked out. He smiled at Highwarrior Ambition. "Oh, it's Ambition from the Highwarrior family. Not bad. Your child is not bad at all. To reach the third Firmament of the Mortal realm at such an early age, he is much better than a father like you."

    "Hahaha." Highwarrior Ambition laughed as he scratched his head. The beautiful woman beside him giggled.

    "Your name is Wing, isn't it?" The elder looked at Qin Yun and said with a smile. "In a while, I'll arrange an opponent for you. You must attack with all you got. By the way, what weapon do you use?"

    "Sword," said Qin Yun.

    The elder grabbed a sword out from the bag by his waist.

    Qin Yun thought to himself. "Since Dharma spells are uncommon here, the Cosmic Bags that can store items are extremely rare in this world."

    "You can use this sword for now." The elder threw the sword to Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun extended his hand and grabbed it. When he unsheathed it, he saw that the sword had patterns on it that resembled a silver dragon. He faintly heard a dragon's roar from the pattern. It was a third-grade Dharma treasure. He immediately said, "Thank you, Elder."

    "Why are using a sword?" Highwarrior Ambition asked puzzled. "Don't you use a hammer?"

    "I had some insights while bordering life and death. I prefer to use swords now," explained Qin Yun immediately.

    Hammer? He was a sword immortal!

    "As long as you like it. You are still young, so it's fine to switch weapons. But in the future, don't switch weapons so easily. Focus on one type of weapon," exhorted Highwarrior Ambition.

    "Yes, Father." Qin Yun answered.

    "Also, do well later for me. It will be an honor for our Highwarrior family," said Highwarrior Ambition. "Use as much strength as you have!"

    "Wing, remember, go all out." The woman looked at Qin Yun with eyes filled with anticipation.

    "Okay." Qin Yun nodded.

    He could sense the immense anticipation Wing's parents had for him. He also knew that although there were not many Connate Godfiend descendants, it would still be a sizable number when all nine cities' worth were added up! The Connate Godfiends that stood atop the pack would naturally choose the best for further nurturing. It was impossible for plebeians and geniuses to receive the same treatment.

    "How much the Godfiend Temple is willing to nurture you will all depend on this battle." Highwarrior Ambition was filled with anticipation.

    ...

    Moments later.

    Many Connate Godfiend descendants were gathered on the sides, watching the distant Qin Yun and the brawny man in front of him.

    There were fifteen Connate Godfiend family clans in the city and with a few people from each family coming to spectate, there were easily more than a hundred clansmen there.

    "Highwarrior's family's Wing? He just had his Coming of Age ceremony, didn't he?"

    "What, he's already at the third Firmament of the Mortal realm at such a young age?"

    "I would never guess that Ambition could produce such an impressive son."

    There was a flurry of discussion.

    "Haha." Highwarrior Ambition was extremely happy. He had never felt so proud in his life.

    "However, he's still too young. He will at best last ten strikes against Bofeng."

    "I heard that his sword skills aren't bad. He might be able to last fifteen strikes."

    "I think he might be defeated in three strikes."

    There were all sorts of discussions.

    Highwarrior Ambition frowned when he heard it. He stared at the distant Qin Yun and mumbled, "Wing, you have to do well. Last fifty strikes or something."

    The beautiful woman beside him looked at her husband and whispered, "Ambition, Wing is still too young. He's lacking in combat experience while Team Leader Bofeng has a rich history of combat experience that might not even be inferior to yours. I think we should be satisfied if Wing can last ten strikes."

    ...

    And a distance away.

    "Begin then." The hunchbacked elder said.

    Qin Yun looked at the brawny man who was wielding a thick saber in front of him. The man laughed and said, "Highwarrior family's Wing. I never expected you to come to the Godfiend Temple at fourteen. Come on, use all your strength. Do not be afraid of injuring me!"

    "Uncle Bofeng, you should be careful," said Qin Yun.

    "Haha, don't you worry about me. Numerous fiendish demons have died under my blade. My strength is not something a child like you can match," said the man confidently.

    "Alright."

    Qin Yun grabbed his scabbard with his left hand. "I'm going to attack."

    "Come on, let me see what you are capable of." The man nodded.

    Sou!

    Qin Yun suddenly charged forward.

    "You are pretty fast." The man looked with interest. The hundred plus Connate Godfiend descendants, who were a distance away, watched carefully. The Highwarrior couple was even more nervous.

    Qin Yun was extremely fast and at the exact instant he approached the man, his right hand flashed. He had instantly drawn his sword.

    The sword unsheathed!

    The brawny man only felt a lunar beam flash across his eyes. He immediately swung his thick saber up to block but failed.

    "Woosh!" The lunar beam came to a halt.

    The sword that Qin Yun held with one hand stopped beside the man's neck.

    One strike!

    Victory!

    There was silence. Many of the Connate Godfiend family clansmen widened their eyes as they stared at the scene in disbelief.
