Chapter 426: I Cant Save Her!

    Chapter 426: I Can't Save Her!

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    At the Divine Firmament Chapter, a wind blew across a lake, stirring up ripples across its surface. Qin Yun, Yi Xiao, Patriarch Bai, Human Emperor, Skydemon Palatial Lord, East Sea Skydragon, Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa, and Daoist Divine Firmament were sitting together.

    They were splitting the spoils of war.

    They were truly shocking. There were more than a hundred transcendent-grade armors, the value matching three to four superior-grade Numinous treasures! Furthermore, these third Firmament fiendcelestials each had their individual weapons and various treasures. All of them added up made for an astonishing figure.

    "These fiendcelestial guardian's treasures might not be a lot on an individual basis, but a hundred added up matches six superior-grade Numinous treasures," said Ancestral Master Zhang with a smile. "The fact that we discovered the danger ahead of time and averted the disaster is all thanks to Qin Yun. I suggest that forty percent of the spoils of war should be given to Qin Yun. Do we all agree?"

    "All I did was help in cracking the array. It was Senior Zhang that really dealt with all those fiendcelestials," said Qin Yun immediately. "It was Senior Zhang's vigorous efforts that turned the tide and averted this disaster. How can I be given all the credit?"

    "Hahaha..." Patriarch Bai said with a laugh. "I'm the oldest here, so let me decide on the matter. Brother Zhang is the strongest among all of us. He also needs the most treasures for cultivation. Finally, he was the one who vanquished the group of fiendcelestials. He shall be given half. Qin Yun's role in this matter was extremely crucial as well. Without him, we would not have been able to crack the array formation. He shall be given thirty percent. The five of us will split the remaining twenty percent equally. Although we only stayed by the side aiding indirectly, we did put in some effort despite not accomplishing anything noteworthy."

    "We aren't taking advantage of you," said East Sea Skydragon with a smile.

    "I was only watching the battle by the side yet I'm benefiting from it. I'm really ashamed," added Human Emperor.

    Bodhisattva Mahākāśyapa and Skydemon Palatial Lord smiled in agreement.

    Ancestral Master Zhang hesitated for a moment before nodding. "Alright. Qin Yun, don't speak any further. We shall split it as such."

    Qin Yun could only nod in agreement when he saw everyone's expressions.

    Patriarch Bai and the other four had agreed to such a split for two reasons.

    Firstly, they had really not contributed much. Secondly, the strength Daoist Divine Firmament showcased left them astounded. They felt the huge gap between them! It was only because Daoist Divine Firmament needed to create a more profound Dharmic formulation for the Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma that he remained in the third Firmament Skyimmortal realm and purposefully avoided making any breakthroughs. As for Qin Yun, he had only cultivated for decades but he was able to suppress ordinary Skyimmortals and Skyfiends with his mortal coils.

    Daoist Divine Firmament was naturally powerful but Qin Yun similarly had extraordinary potential. His achievements were bound to exceed the five of them!

    All of them were willing to yield to him.

    In the past, they had vaguely treated Daoist Divine Firmament as their leader but now, there was no need to keep it concealed. Daoist Divine Firmament was definitely the leader of the Great Chang world's cultivation community.

    ...

    After splitting the spoils of war, one fiendcelestial after another was sent in for questioning.

    Only the scouts that entered the Great Chang world ahead of time were planted with Mental Demons to keep the invasion plans a secret. The ordinary third Firmament fiendcelestial guardians were relatively weaker, so Empyrean Lord was unworried about their potential for betrayal. Hence, they were unqualified to be planted with Mental Demon seeds.

    Qin Yun and company sat down and saw a fiendcelestial being escorted over. The fiendcelestial's Dharmic powers were sealed and it was feeling somewhat uneasy.

    "Be honest. Answer whatever is asked. You are doomed if we realize you have lied by saying anything that differs from the other fiendcelestials," a Divine Firmament Chapter Elder in charge of escorting the fiendcelestial bellowed.

    "Yes." The third Firmament fiendcelestial answered obediently.

    "Master, here is one of the fiendcelestials," said the Elder when he escorted the fiendcelestial over.

    Patriarch Bai looked at the fiendcelestial and asked, "What's your Empyrean Lord's name?"

    "Our Empyrean Lord's name is Kuifu."

    Ancestral Master Zhang was enlightened. "It's indeed him."

    Qin Yun asked anxiously, "Do you know of a female toddler that was sent to the fiendcelestial world by Fiendcelestial Wuha about seventeen years ago?"

    Yi Xiao looked gripped with anxiety as well.

    "Female toddler? Yes," replied the fiendcelestial guardian. "We are all guardians of Empyrean Lord, so we naturally know of the matter."

    "Where is she now?" pressed Qin Yun immediately.

    "We heard she was placed under house arrest at first. But later she infuriated Empyrean Lord and he killed her, as well as her maidservants," said the fiendcelestial. "As guardians, we are by Empyrean Lord's side perennially, so most of us have heard that same story."

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao's face turned white when they heard that.

    Had she really been killed?

    "Did anyone see it with their own eyes?" asked Skydemon Palatial Lord with furrowed brows.

    "Actually, no." The fiendcelestial shook his head after some thought.

    Ancestral Master Zhang asked, "Why would Empyrean Lord pay such a tremendous price to conquer our Great Chang world?"

    "How could we dare question Empyrean Lord on his decision to conquer a world?" said the fiendcelestial.

    ...

    "Next," said Patriarch Bai.

    The fiendcelestial guardians were questioned one after another but the results only made Qin Yun and Yi Xiao more anxious.

    The fiendcelestials' accounts were mostly the same. As they were guardians of Empyrean Lord, many of them had heard about the female toddler! They heard that she had been killed for enraging Empyrean Lord! However, none of them actually saw the murder with their own eyes.

    "It's strange to kill a female toddler and even the maidservants," said Ancestral Master Zhang. "He is very strong, strong enough to easily withstand the karmic effects of killing a few mortals. However, there's no need for him to do so, nor would he do so wantonly. After all, if he killed a few this time out of anger, and a few the next time, over time, the accumulated karma will still be huge. Skyimmortals and Skyfiends typically hold back. They do not kill mortals unless necessary! If the girl had truly infuriated him, he only needed to kill her. Why would he kill the maidservants as well?"

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao nodded immediately.

    "Yes, yes, yes," said Yi Xiao.

    "My daughter might very well be still alive," added Qin Yun.

    Human Emperor frowned and said, "Those fiendcelestial guardians only heard of the murder of the girl despite being personal guards. Qin Yun, if your child is still alive... where would she be? How can we investigate the matter?"

    "It will be difficult." Patriarch Bai shook his head. "There's no way for us to enter that fiendcelestial world to investigate. Entering that world spells certain death."

    "Yes, it's suicidal." Ancestral Master Zhang nodded. "That Empyrean Lord Kuifu's strength is much greater than mine."

    "So the only way to investigate is through divination?" asked Skydemon Palatial Lord.

    "Divining the details of a life in a distant world across the cosmos far exceeded the means available to Skyimmortals. It's only possible for a mighty figure." Ancestral Master Zhang looked at Qin Yun. "From the looks of it, the only way is to seek Puqu Dragonlord's help again. He is the only mighty figure willing to help us."

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded. "Let's not delay matters. I'll seek an audience with the Dragonlord now."

    Everyone present turned solemn.

    Mighty figures at the level of Golden Immortals or Buddhas... were legendary! Even they were considered lucky to be able to meet a mighty figure as ordinary Skyimmortals and a Skygod. Perhaps only Ancestral Master Zhang might chance upon a mighty figure in Green Touring Palace.

    Qin Yun looked at Yi Xiao and consoled her, "Don't worry. Dragonlord has extraordinary powers. I was able to rescue you thanks to him. I believe he will definitely be able to help save our daughter."

    Following that, Qin Yun took out a token with the words 'Puqu' engraved on it.

    He activated it.

    Buzz-

    The token projected a spot in distant space. In that vast starry sky was Puqu Dragonlord's massive coiled body. His dragon scales contained Dao charms and when he opened his eyes, they were more blinding than the sun. Qin Yun and company did not dare look him directly in the eye.

    "Dragonlord." Qin Yun and company, including Yi Xiao, bowed.

    "Little guy, it's you again?" Puqu Dragonlord smiled as his long dragon whiskers flailed.

    Qin Yun took out a golden seal. It was the superior-grade Minor Empyrean Seal.

    With it in hand, he bowed and beseeched, "I am offering this treasure, to shamelessly seek Dragonlord's help once again to rescue my daughter. My daughter also has dragon blood flowing through her."

    Qin Yun did not mind giving up the Minor Empyrean Seal if it meant reuniting his family.

    "Your daughter?"

    Puqu Dragonlord looked at Qin Yun through the distance space before looking at Yi Xiao.

    He could easily see the couple's karmic lines. Much of the karma was concealed or obstructed but his eyes could easily penetrate to see the threads. He traced one of the karmic lines... rapidly traversing distant space to a distant world where the other end of the karmic line was.

    "Oh?"

    Spying on that world from afar, he saw a girl practicing her swordsmanship on a mountain diligently. She had a wound on her face.

    He easily found Qin Yun and Yi Xiao's daughter but it made anger flash in his eyes.

    "Your daughter is in the Skywolf world! I can't save her. If you want to save her, rely on yourself!" Puqu Dragonlord's voice rumbled. As his words continued echoing, the spatial rift closed.

    Perhaps it was because he was unable to rescue the girl, or perhaps due to his anger, Puqu Dragonlord did not take the Minor Empyrean Seal away from Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun was taken aback when he heard that, he was still mid-bow and holding up the seal.

    "My daughter is still alive!" Qin Yun was pleasantly surprised but also anxious. "But even a mighty figure like Puqu Dragonlord can't save her?"

    "Skywolf world? It's Yellow-robed Supremacy?" Ancestral Master Zhang found it unbelievable.
