    Chapter 374: I Finally Found You!

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Qin Yun flew four hundred kilometers away before entering a barren desert. The sheer vastness of the desert made it difficult to spot a single person in it all. Only then did Qin Yun descend.

    "My trip to the Great Chu world was quite an eventful one with some near misses but nothing too dangerous. I finally obtained the pair of Dharma treasure gauntlets. It's time to return." Qin Yun sensed the Void Altar that had been set up in his homeworld from afar. After he created the fifth move of the Dreamlike Sword, Traveling in Solitude, Qin Yun's grasp of the void was deeply profound. He sensed the Void Altar even clearer than before.

    "Open!"

    Qin Yun tapped with his finger as a wisp of misty rain instantly tore through the void.

    Rip!

    A void rift appeared.

    However, it only barely established a connection with his homeworld. The passageway was only strong enough to transmit information and energy, but nothing physical.

    Whoosh! As Qin Yun kept the connection going, he cast his flying sword out, widening the void passageway and making it more stable.

    After about thirty seconds, Qin Yun's eyes lit up. "That's enough, time to leave!"

    He instantly stored away his flying sword as he quickly transformed into a beam of light and burrowed in. He did not dare hesitate! This was because the spatial void passageway was constantly shrinking. It would close completely after some time.

    ...

    Like a fish, he swiftly traveled through the constantly changing and narrowing void passageway. The surrounding void pressed down on him but he still managed to proceed quickly and deftly.

    Finally, his eyes lit up as he tore through the end of the passageway. He had appeared in a sealed hall. There was a ten-foot-wide golden altar there, and it was clearly the hall he had set off from.

    "I'm back." Qin Yun finally relaxed completely.

    "Rumble." The door to the hall suddenly opened from the outside. Daoist Divine Firmament, dressed in a Daoist robe with a tall headdress, as well as a light yellow-robed Human Emperor entered together. They looked smilingly at him.

    Although Qin Yun had met Human Emperor many times, it was only his avatar.

    "Hahaha, Qin Yun. Congratulations," said Human Emperor.

    "From the way you are beaming, you must have succeeded," added Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "I was nearly caught. The person that took action at the end was the Great Chu world's Empyrean Lord," said Qin Yun. "Thankfully, I did not linger in battle after obtaining the gauntlet. I fled quickly and still only barely escaped."

    "Empyrean Lord?"

    Human Emperor and Ancestral Master Zhang exchanged looks. That was a terrifying existence that even they feared.

    "That's an existence at least at the fourth Firmament Skyfiend level, perhaps even stronger. After all, she is able to suppress a group of Skyfiends," said Human Emperor regretfully. "Even we wouldn't be her match if we encountered her. Did you see her face?"

    "No, I was still thousands of kilometers away. If I saw her face, I probably wouldn't be here talking to you right now," said Qin Yun with a smile.

    Ancestral Master Zhang threw a Cosmic Bag to Qin Yun. "Your treasures. It's time they return to their owner."

    "Thank you, Senior Zhang." Qin Yun received it, opened it, and took a look. Nothing was missing. Qin Yun immediately took out the other parts of the Empyrean Lord Divine Armor set.

    "Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!"

    All the parts began to join and organize themselves.

    Qin Yun threw the Heart-Protecting Mirror and the two gauntlets he brought back over to them.

    Instantly, there was a perfect golden-armor floating in midair. It had gauntlets, combat boots, a helm, etc. Everything was there. Looking from the back, it looked like a living golden-armored Godfiend. When the Numinous treasure was completed, it also emitted a terrifying aura.

    "Nice treasure." Ancestral Master Zhang commented upon seeing it. "With Old Bai's personality, I believe he will want to buy it. The amount of treasures he has is probably enough."

    "Skydemon has also long wanted such a set," said Human Emperor.

    "Can I sell it for more than three inferior-grade Numinous treasures?" Qin Yun could not help but ask.

    "Don't get your hopes up," said Human Emperor with a laugh. "It's only worth three inferior-grade Numinous treasures. It would be sold for that rate in another world as well. Although Skydemon wants something like it, she might not be willing to buy it because of the high price! Her treasures are all being used in other areas."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    The expenditure of treasures on the cultivation path had a natural inclination towards certain aspects.

    For instance, he used to put nurturing his Intrinsic Flying Sword above all else! Now, ever since he needed to accumulate Numinous treasures, he did not dare to spend resources constantly nurturing his Intrinsic Flying Sword. People like Skydemon and Patriarch Bai, they also definitely had their hierarchy of choices... A Numinous treasure armor that could protect them would usually have lower priority! This was because the protection of one's body could be achieved through other means.

    "Do you think Skyimmortals and Skydemons are all rich?" Human Emperor shook his head. "Gathering the two or three Numinous treasures that work best for them makes them poor."

    "That's right. However, those Skyfiends who fight each other are even poorer. I have seen a Skyfiend who does not even have one inferior-grade Numinous treasure. They fight purely with their physical bodies," quipped Ancestral Master Zhang. "For instance, your Earth-shattering Stellar Armor is a superior-grade Numinous treasure. One of those matches ten inferior-grade Numinous treasures."

    "That was obtained by my Godfiend lineage's predecessors. I only inherited it," responded Human Emperor.

    Qin Yun stood to the side, listening with a smile. At the same time, he put away the Empyrean Lord Divine Armor into his Cosmic Bag.

    He secretly thought, "The Empyrean Lord Divine Armor is counted as three inferior-grade Numinous treasures. Then I have the Cosmic Bangles, the Heart Stirring Bell, and the Space-shattering Halberd. In total, that's six. To get more treasures like these, I will need a huge opportunity. I would truly have to comb the world slowly. The lost Numinous treasures in the Great Chang world are extremely few in number. Other humans and even demons are also constantly searching for them as well. It won't be that easy for me to find one."

    From his own experience, the Ancient Skydragon Palace was a rare opportunity. Immortal Cloudgrace's cave abode was his first opportunity after searching the world for fifteen years.

    After discovering the secret of the Empyrean Lord Divine Armor parts... he directly went to the Great Chu world. He narrowly escaped and managed to obtain the treasures.

    He needed opportunities, strength, and to take risks!

    "I still have quite a bit of treasure on me. The Two World Picture, the alchemical cauldron, etc. There's also some of the treasures I obtained from exchanging the Other Realm Skyfiend's corpse. Although I used up some while nurturing my flying sword and setting up the array formations in the family manor, my remaining treasures should amount to one Numinous treasure," thought Qin Yun.

    "Even if I sell everything I have, I'll only make enough for one Numinous treasure. Counting the six from before... I'm still short three." Qin Yun shook his head in silence.

    "Qin Yun, what do you plan on doing next?" asked Human Emperor with a smile.

    "Your Majesty," said Qin Yun. "My trip to the Great Chu world also gave me a chance to pass by another world on my way back. I feel that... although I'm unfamiliar with other worlds, intelligence can be slowly gathered. One good thing about going to other worlds is that they do not know anything about me! Since it's difficult to obtain any huge opportunities in our homeworld, I think I'll head to the other worlds to continue the search."

    "They know nothing about me and aren't wary of mortals, giving me a chance," said Qin Yun.

    Ancestral Master Zhang and Human Emperor were slightly taken aback.

    "You are in that much of a rush?" asked Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded. "Every day I delay only further endangers Xiaoxiao."

    "Your Majesty, Senior Zhang, without any delay, I bid you farewell." Qin Yun looked at the Void Altar to the side. "I'll temporarily leave this Void Altar here in the Divine Firmament Chapter."

    "It's safest in Divine Firmament Chapter." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded.

    ...

    Sou!

    Qin Yun streaked across the sky.

    He first made a trip to Grand Dominance.

    High above Grand Dominance, Qin Yun overlooked the city. He saw Qin Shuyan and his wife disciplining a fifteen-year-old youth.

    "This is Shuyan's child?" Qin Yun watched. "He got so big in a blink of an eye. If my daughter grew up safely, she's probably around his age."

    He fell into thought for a while as he overlooked the area before wiping those thoughts away.

    Qin Yun took a look at his family. And after confirming that his parents were well, he turned and flew off.

    ...

    According to plan, Qin Yun intended to spend a year filling the Grotto-heaven Sword Calabash's Sword Qi to the brim. Then, he would head to the Ancient Skydragon Palace to make another attempt at cleaning it out. Now that his strength had risen, he wished to see if he could use the Grotto-heaven Sword Calabash's strength to crack the core array formation and obtain the final treasures in the Ancient Skydragon Palace.

    Regardless of how much success he had there, he had to head to other worlds to continue the search as long as he was short on Numinous treasures.

    "The ten inferior-grade Numinous treasures will be gathered."

    Qin Yun continued traveling the world.

    During that one year, other than infusing the Grotto-heaven Sword Calabash with Sword Qi, he would also continue the search for treasure troves. Although he innately believed that it was very unlikely, who knew? Perhaps he might find another treasure trove!

    ******

    In a blink of an eye, it was the third month since Qin Yun's return.

    That day, Qin Yun flew through the clouds as he watched a distant city. He habitually opened the third eye in his glabella. The Eye of Lightning looked at the city from afar.

    "Whoosh."

    The Eye of Lightning swept through the area.

    He quickly discovered the strongest auras in the city. One of them was especially eye-catching.

    "I never expected there to be a Connate Golden Core. He has quite a strong aura too." Qin Yun was rather surprised when he did his cursory sweep. But when he looked carefully, his expression changed!

    His face flushed red as his body trembled slightly.

    He looked in disbelief at the man in the city hundreds of kilometers away.

    "He Qian!!!" Qin Yun squeezed the two words out through his clenched teeth. All the blood in him seemed to boil over as his eyes turned red. "I've finally found you!"
