Star Odyssey - Chapter 1918
Lu Yin stared at God of Mirrors for some time without saying a word.
The gray-haired man was not stupid, and he quickly said, “We can offer you something in exchange. We have several ruins in my Gods’ Origin where we all train. I will tell you that I have indeed reached the Infinity realm of Truesight, and I have done so with the ruins that we possess. Regardless of what level your cultivation has reached, it is practically impossible for any outsiders to reach the Infinity realm of Truesight. You must already understand the miraculous nature of Rune Technology and the civilization that was built upon it. Their cultivation method is impossible for others to grasp no matter how desperately they may wish to.
“If you want to reach the Infinity realm of Truesight, you will need to train in Gods’ Origin.”
Lu Yin considered this proposal. “What does the Infinity realm allow one to do?”
He had learned of the Infinity realm’s existence from the Rune Technology ruins that he had found in Burial Garden, but reaching that level would be as difficult as ascending to the heavens without further assistance. This was the reason why Lu Yin had wanted to speak to God of Mirrors. Lu Yin hoped to learn what Gods’ Origin relied upon to train in Truesight, and if possible, Lu Yin wanted to visit Gods’ Origin and train there as well.
A quick look at tinyurl.com/2p9emv8w will leave you more fulfilled.
God of Mirrors stared intently at Lu Yin, fanaticism blazing in the older man’s eyes. “The Infinity realm follows the Knowing realm. At the Infinity realm, all battle techniques, skills, secret techniques, and innate gifts can be seen as runes with Truesight. Not only that, but Truesight allows one to do more than merely observe and weaken the runes at this level—it can also force runes to change on the finest, most detailed level, which allows one to change the observed battle techniques and more.
“Essentially, the Infinity realm of mastery is a transformative level for Truesight where the practitioner is able alter the most primitive observable state to nullify an opponent’s attack. Not only can a person create something out of nothing, but they will essentially become omnipotent.”
Lu Yin became incredibly excited by this explanation. “Please allow me to experience this myself.”
Even as Lu Yin spoke, he raised a hand and released a Hollow Palm, though he deliberately slowed the palm strike so that God of Mirrors would have no difficulty in seeing the invisible attack.
God of Mirrors’s face twitched upon seeing this palm strike. This was a peerlessly powerful attack, and it incorporated Lu Yin’s domain, spiritual force, and more. If any part of this attack struck home, God of Mirrors would suffer terrible injuries. The worst part of all was the sheer power behind this attack.
The man continued to stare at Lu Yin, and the Hollow Palm completely dissipated when it was less than one meter from the older man.
This would not be unexpected in the past, as it was no different than if someone had weakened Lu Yin’s attack completely. However, God of Mirrors was not stronger than Lu Yin, and yet the man had been able to erase Lu Yin’s Hollow Palm. This was the power of the Infinity realm of Truesight.
Lu Yin did not release another attack as God of Mirrors had already revealed enough. Given Lu Yin’s current level of strength, who could easily handle his Hollow Palm? However, God of Mirrors had simply erased the attack, which was quite terrifying.
“When it comes to the Infinity realm of Truesight, I’ve only managed to scratch the surface. If God of Flames makes a move, the miraculousness of Truesight can truly be seen. He can cause planets to disintegrate and be reassembled. He can transform someone else’s battle technique into his own, or even copy an opponent’s battle technique. He can even copy an innate gift. That is the level of true mastery of the Infinity realm,” God of Mirrors explained.
Lu Yin eagerly anticipated reaching such a level of mastery. “I’ll visit your Gods’ Origin as soon as possible to observe your Rune Technology ruins, and when I arrive, I’ll tell you where that statue can be found.”
God of Mirrors was also excited. “You can tell me now. Gods’ Origin will always be happy to welcome you.”
Lu Yin shook his head. “I’ll tell you in Gods’ Origin. It’s still too soon.”
God of Mirrors shrugged. Gods’ Origin yearned for any ruins of the Rune Civilization. They had sent out people across all parts of the Fifth Mainland long ago to help search for more ruins. The Outerverse’s Amethyst Exchange was one such group, and there were many others who had been sent to scour the Innerverse and the Cosmic Sea. There was no one more eager to master Truesight than these people.
If anyone else tried to withhold such information, God of Mirrors would have already taken them away and interrogated them, but he did not have the courage or the strength to do so to Lu Yin.
“Overseer Lu, I truly hope that you will come to visit my Gods’ Origin as soon as possible. No matter when you visit, Gods’ Origin will welcome you.” God of Mirrors could not hide his eagerness.
Lu Yin could plainly feel the man’s sincerity. This was no different from when he had dealt with the Wen family. Actually, Lu Yin realized that he had quite a few people eager to appease him. First the Wen family and the Ku family, and more recently, Gods’ Origin. Actually, there was also the Sword Sect, as Lu Yin had already agreed to give them Liu Hao. He would negotiate that exchange when he returned to the Innerverse.
“Don’t worry, I will come by as soon as possible,” Lu Yin politely said to the older man.
Before leaving, God of Mirrors could not resist saying, “Overseer Lu, you must take care of yourself. Your safety must remain your top priority.”
The man’s words left the old woman and everyone else from Gods’ Origin dumbfounded, and they all gave God of Mirrors odd looks.
City Master Qing and his son were also stunned. Since when were people from Gods’ Origin so kind?
Yao Hong had only just woken up, but she passed out yet again after hearing God of Mirrors’ words.
Lu Yin sighed. So many powerful people in the Neoverse were desperate to keep him safe, including the Cosmic Sect. With this, Gods’ Origin had joined that group.
Everyone from Gods’ Origin left, and they took Yao Hong with them, assuring Lu Yin that they would discipline her upon returning to Gods’ Origin.
Lu Yin remained where he was, as he was still waiting for Qian Zou’s word.
Since Lu Yin was staying in Skyraiser City, it was only natural for City Master Qing to play the host. Despite being badly abused by Lu Yin, since City Master Qing was not dead, he needed to personally entertain Lu Yin, and Qing Yu accompanied his father to serve their “guest.”
The recent events had completely transformed Qing Yu’s entire life. Although there was fear in his eyes when he looked at Lu Yin, there was also longing. For the first time in his life, Qing Yu desired to become a powerhouse. He had always been protected by his father, but even City Master Qing had to lower himself before Lu Yin. Qing Yu recognized that he needed to move forward with his own power.
Lu Yin had not expected to have such an influence on Qing Yu, as the youth was not worthy of Lu Yin’s concern or attention.
A few days passed, and Qian Zou found Lu Yin. “I’m back.”
Lu Yin nodded and bade his farewells to City Master Qing.
The Envoy let out a sigh of relief when he saw Lu Yin leave. He had been quite worried that Lu Yin would kill him upon leaving. There were many ruthless people in the universe, and such people were even more common among those at Lu Yin’s level of strength.
However, this was not a bad outcome.
“Father, what about Yao Hong?” Qing Yu asked.
City Master Qing gritted his teeth, becoming angry upon hearing the question. “Everything happened because that bitch provoked Lu Yin! If not for her, the two of us would have never been put in such a tight situation. Forget about her. It doesn’t matter if she returns or not.”
After speaking, City Master Qing held himself. His injuries were truly severe, and he had forcefully endured them for several days in order to wait upon Lu Yin. It was vital that City Master Qing retreat into seclusion as soon as possible to recuperate.
“Be straight with me and don’t make any trouble while I’m gone. The universe is not as simple as you believe,” City Master Qing warned his son before ordering someone to keep an eye on Qing Yu and not allowing him to leave. That done, the Envoy isolated himself to heal his injuries.
Elsewhere in the city, Lu Yin and Qian Zou met with the owner of Silverjoss Auction House.
When it came to such a minor character, anything could be pulled out with just a little bit of effort.
The owner of Silverjoss Auction House did not try to keep any secrets. Even if he had any, they would only be about his wealth.
However, the former Yadoor Auction House had been caught with a huge secret. That person had found and taken control of a pocket dimension, similar to the space that concealed the Bizarre Sect. Inverse Step had come from this pocket dimension.
There was an asteroid field a short distance away from Skyraiser City. This was the northern region’s asteroid field, and Lu Yin and his little group appeared on one of the asteroids in this place.
The group consisted of Lu Yin, Qian Zou, and a little old man.
“Is this it?” Qian Zou asked.
The little old man was panicking. “Yes, this is it!”
Lu Yin observed the asteroid that they were standing upon. It was massive and about the same size as a normal planet. They followed the little old man’s lead and approached a certain location on the asteroid. After taking one more step, all three of them disappeared.
This was not a particularly large pocket space, though that was only from Lu Yin’s perspective; it actually encompassed an area much greater than most planets. The entire place was covered with a mist and a drizzle, and all of the mountains and fields in the space were covered with flowers.
The flowers were everywhere, but Lu Yin trembled when he saw them, and his eyes glowed with excitement. This was the flower that appeared on Progenitor Chen’s emblem!
“Where is it?” Lu Yin asked eagerly. When he looked out at the endless fields of flowers, he felt quite close to Progenitor Chen. In fact, he had not felt this close to the Progenitor even when exploring his tomb.
The little old man pointed in a particular direction. “We spent a few months exploring this place before we found it. It’s in the middle of a field of flowers near a small river.”
Lu Yin grabbed both Qian Zou and the little old man before disappearing.
The next instant, the three of them were standing next to the small river, and Lu Yin saw a small ruin nearly buried under some rocks.
“This place should be truly ancient, and the rocks have all collapsed. When we first arrived, there was a wooden house here with rotten furniture and other sundries inside. We checked it all out, but other than the stone table, everything turned to dust when touched. All of it was completely useless, so we haven’t returned to this place in quite some time,” the little old man respectfully explained.
Lu Yin’s eyes were drawn to the stone table after he heard the man’s words, and he stepped over next to the table to study it.
It had originally been buried under the collapsed rocks before being dug out by the auction house’s people. Fortunately, they had not used much force, as they could have easily destroyed the table.
It was actually a perfectly ordinary stone table, but they had made a point to preserve it because of a line of text on it. The language had been used during the Daosource Sect’s era, and although Lu Yin could not read it, he could recognize a few of the characters from the text he had seen in the ruins inside the giant centipede’s corpse from all those years ago. It was the same language that had been written by the man who had been pinned to the ground by five spears.
Lu Yin remembered the Ghost Monkey had translated the text as ‘My regret is not being able to protect our master awaiting for the rain to end! Hate! Hate! Hate!!’1
The writing on this table had most likely been left behind by Progenitor Chen, and Lu Yin was able to recognize three of the characters since he had seen them before. They meant “awaiting for the rain to end.”
Seeing this, Lu Yin looked up at the sky. Rain was falling in this entire pocket dimension. The whole place was covered with rain and mist, which gave the entire place an indescribable beauty. Was there some connection between the weather and this text?
Qian Zou grew curious. “Seventh Bro, what does this say?”
The little old man also looked at Lu Yin with curiosity, but Lu Yin shook his head. “I don’t know.”
Qian Zou felt disappointed. “This is a very old language, and after so many years, writing has changed so much that it will be difficult to translate this.”
“Was there anything else that you found in this place? Where did you find the piece of jade?” Lu Yin turned to the old man and asked.
The little old man was respectful as he replied, “Right here. It was right next to the stone table. We searched this entire place for a long time and were very careful. Aside from the jade slip, there was nothing at all in this place.”
Lu Yin frowned. Why would a place where Progenitor Chen had possibly stayed be so ordinary? Logically speaking, any place that a Progenitor stayed at should have been difficult for even someone like Lu Yin to enter, let alone a tiny auction house. A perfect example of this was Progenitor Chen’s Mausoleum. This pocket dimension was simply too ordinary. Lu Yin had even observed the place with Truesight upon entering, but there was nothing to be seen even when observing the runes.
There was no intelligent life in the pocket dimension. There were some fish in the little river and some bugs in the fields of flowers. It was enough life to form a stable ecosystem, but there was nothing here that could cultivate or even had any connection to such.
If there was no connection to cultivation, then why leave that jade slip? The Inverse Step recorded in the jade had clearly been left behind as an inheritance, but this place was so mundane that it was hard to make sense of.
Qian Zou touched one of the white flowers. “These flowers are ordinary, but I must admit that they have a very pure appearance.”
Lu Yin looked out at the sea of flowers. The small blossoms shook when struck by raindrops, and they looked quite weak. Progenitor Chen’s emblem was of nine stars surrounding one of these white flowers. What did it mean? Did he want to protect these flowers?
