Chapter 496: Palatial Lord Kuishi

    Chapter 496: Palatial Lord Kuishi

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Time passed, and in a blink of an eye, it had been eight years since the battle with Demon King Bear Mountain.

    Qin Yun had also fully integrated the wisp of the baffling Chaos concept into his Sword Dao. He also reached a deeper, more profound level of cultivation in the five sword manuals.

    ...

    Tenebrous Fiend world. In a hall of Kuishi Palace.

    A beautiful woman with four sharp curved horns was half-slumped in her throne. Beside her were four handsome male slaves who served her with utmost care. They were trembling in fear, for just moments ago a handsome male slave had dropped a grape he had deskinned accidentally. He was swallowed whole by the Palatial Lord.

    Palatial Lord Kuishi rubbed the blood from the corner of her mouth with her finger as she extended her long tongue to lick it, wiping off all traces of blood from her lips. The four male slaves turned even more careful after that.

    "Sister Kuishi, Qin Yun has returned to his homeworld, the Great Chang world." A voice resounded in the hall.

    "Oh?"

    Palatial Lord Kuishi furrowed her brows a little as the corner of her mouth curled slightly. She gently waved her hand as the four male slaves reverently took their leave.

    "Brother, is there anything that I should be wary of in the Great Chang world?" inquired Palatial Lord Kuishi.

    "The Great Chang world has Daoist Divine Firmament, who is also a Green Touring Palace disciple. However, he poses no threat to you. Your target is Qin Yun." The voice continued resounding in the hall. "The present him poses little threat, but if he is allowed to continue to grow, the threat he'll pose in the future would be immense. You have to kill him during this operation."

    "Brother, don't worry. Leave it to me. I believe this Sword Immortal Qin... will definitely be quite delicious." Palatial Lord Kuishi flipped her hand and held a trident.

    With a whoosh, Palatial Lord Kuishi transformed into a black stream of light before leaving the palace.

    She first flew out of the Tenebrous Fiend world.

    "Great Chang world?"

    Kuishi's single step allowed her to traverse the void. She had used Major Void Transference.

    Skyimmortals who could cast Void Transference by themselves... would typically be those that reached the seventh firmament Skyimmortal realm. However, Void Transference was limited in distance. It was typically tens of thousands of kilometers, and at most hundreds of kilometers! To travel through the starry cosmos? It would take an immense amount of time going from one planet to another. Just Void Transference alone would be extremely demanding, much less traversing the cosmos.

    As for Major Void Transference, that was typically for those that had a extremely profound grasp of the void. They could cast Major Void Transference without any external items, and they would mostly have reached the half-step Golden Immortal realm.

    What was a half-step Golden Immortal?

    It referred to those that could exchange a multitude of blows with Golden Immortals and Buddhas, delivering attacks that could even threaten mighty figures. They strengths were already very close to Golden Immortals and Buddhas!

    And it was because their realms were extremely high could they cast Major Void Transference!

    For instance, Ancestral Master Zhang... was unable to cast Major Void Transference despite reaching the pinnacle of the Skyimmortal realm and being rather perceptive.

    It was the same with Qin Yun.

    However Kuishi was able to cast Major Void Transference by herself! From this alone-without the use of external objects-one could tell just her realm alone was already extremely high. She was already very close to the level of a Ancestral Fiend mighty figure.

    "Whoosh."

    Dressed in red robes, Kuishi walked through the void with trident in hand.

    She looked at the gigantic planet in front of her.

    "Great Chang world?" Kuishi smiled faintly. "Sword Immortal Qin, an Essence Soul sword immortal who forged a new sword immortal lineage. He must be delicious."

    With a step, she entered deep into the Great Chang world's clouds. And with another step, she appeared on the surface of the Great Chang world.

    ******

    Great Chang world. Wusu County.

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao were sitting in a private, elegant room in a restaurant eating some of the local delights. There was a wooden railing by the side of the room, and through it, they could see the performance below. There were women playing the pipa and singing local songs on the stage.

    The female voices and the gentle plucking of the pipa seemed to scratch at one's heart.

    "Brother Yun, now that Yiyi has been cultivating in the Effulgent Great World for eight years," said Yi Xiao. "Shall we make a trip to the Effulgent Great World?"

    "We?" Qin Yun was astonished. "Xiaoxiao, didn't you say you would let me accompany you to enjoy the local delicacies since I just returned? Why do you suddenly have thoughts of heading to the Effulgent Great World?"

    "Wusu County is near to our Grand Dominance, but the performances are already so different," said Yi Xiao with a smile. "The Effulgent Great World is so far from us, and it's the center of the entire Effulgent dominion. There are countless mortals, immortals and fiendish demons. It would definitely be more interesting there."

    Qin Yun smiled with a nod. "Yes, there are many immortals and fiendish demons there. Many of which have integrated themselves into the mortal world."

    "Let's go take a look," wheedled Yi Xiao.

    Qin Yun could not help but laugh at his wife's actions. "Alright, as you wish. We will head to the Effulgent Great World tomorrow."

    "While we are there, we can see Yiyi, as well as that son of yours from your dream of a hundred years," said Yi Xiao with a smile.

    "I've already told you multiple times about Huan'er's true parentage," said Qin Yun immediately.

    "I obviously believe you." Yi Xiao smiled with her eyes narrowed.

    Qin Yun was rendered helpless.

    He had a clear conscience, so he had long told his wife.

    But...

    Whether he was the biological father was something only Qin Yun really knew.

    "We haven't met in years. I heard from Sect Master Jade Tripod that Huan'er is doing well." Qin Yun could not help but miss his son. His feelings for Huan'er were in no way inferior to those for his daughter or wife. "On our trip to the Effulgent Great World, I can visit Huan'er as well."

    At that moment-

    Qin Yun felt his heart palpitate. He felt danger rapidly approach him!

    At his present realm, his Dao domain extended out for three hundred kilometers. He was very perceptive of everything that happened within those three hundred kilometers.

    "No good!" Qin Yun suddenly stood up as starlight emitted from his body.

    The dense stellar forces from the boundless cosmos descended as they instantly emanated fifteen hundred kilometers out! Wusu County City, as well as the provincial cities around it, including the mountains,villages, and surrounding counties-spanning a total of fifteen hundred kilometers-were fully enveloped by Qin Yun's stellar barrier. It left countless people alarmed.

    They were either practicing their swordplay, calligraphy, toiling in the farms, listening to music, doing business on the streets...

    Or they were bragging and bleating to themselves...

    However, when the boundless stellar forces descended and swirled around them, it left them confounded. It was unheard of for starlight to descend around them in the daytime.

    And at that moment.

    In the restaurant in Wusu County City.

    Qin Yun was already fully focused.

    "Boom!"

    A terrifying blast surged over.

    "Brother Yun." Yi Xiao stood by Qin Yun's side, feeling extremely nervous.

    Qin Yun stared ahead. He had already discerned his enemy though the Heavenly Cycle Stellar Realm divine power! It was a red-robed female Skyfiend who appeared in the sky over Wusu County. She wielded a trident and had four sharp curved horns. The Skyfiend was looking at Qin Yun, and despite the buildings, including the restaurant, blocking their line of sight, she could still see Qin Yun clearly. She grinned at him, her smile alarming him to his very core.

    "It's her? Palatial Lord Kuishi?" Qin Yun's heart tightened.

    Her reputation preceded her.

    The fiendish forces that wreaked havoc in the Effulgent dominion for eons had Fiend Supremacy Tenebrous Cloud as their supreme leader. That was someone who could truly match that of a Golden Immortal or Buddha.

    And there were three with strength at the half-step Ancestral Fiend level! Palatial Lord Kuishi was one of them.

    "Boom!!!"

    Three emerald green needles tore through the sky and headed straight for the restaurant as they exuded a terrifying fluctuation.

    Qin Yun commanded with his mind. "Seal!"

    The 360 Swords of Stellar Light formed a massive barrier of light, enveloping the entirety of Wusu County City. The three needles stabbed into the barrier, causing the barrier to disintegrate after some warping.

    "The surrounding void has long been sealed. There's no way to do void transference." Qin Yun grabbed his wife.

    "Time to leave."

    He immediately flew into the sky.

    The three needles pursued Qin Yun the moment they pierced through the obstruction from the 360 Swords of Stellar Light.

    "The Heavenly Cycle Stellar Realm is good at trapping enemies, but it's not good for defense." Kuishi chuckled. She took a step, her speed far exceeding Qin Yun's. As she controlled the three needles to attack Qin Yun, she stabbed with the trident in her hand.

    Hua-

    The trident expanded to a hundred thousand feet, like a heavenly column that was suspended above Wusu County City. It stirred the winds and clouds, ripping through the void as it thrust towards Qin Yun.

    The trident's thrust was even faster than the three emerald needles! Its might was also a lot more terrifying.

    After all, Kuishi cultivated her body. She was famous for engaging in melee combat!

    "Oh?" Qin Yun took a glance as the might of the terrifying trident left him shuddering in fear. If it had been unfettered, perhaps everything in a five hundred kilometer radius would have been pulverized. Qin Yun had only managed to protect the mortals by using his Heavenly Cycle Stellar Realm to dampen the auxiliary shockwaves.
