Chapter 1212: Slaughter
Two Darklight Stones floated down Qin Lie’s direction under Gan Xing and Nan Qi’s control.
Qin Lie hidden figure abruptly appeared before the group’s eyes.
“What’s wrong?” Liu Yang asked after coming over.
“I found something interesting. Just follow me,” Qin Lie said.
The soul connection he shared with the Spirits of Void and Chaos meant that he could always pinpoint their location even in absolute darkness.
He followed the Spirits of Void and Chaos swiftly from behind.
Gan Xing and Nan Qi led their team members and followed closely behind Qin Lie as well.
Qin Lie exclaimed in his mind. He learned through his connection that even the wood spirit, thunder spirit and water spirit had gotten excited.
Normally, a rank six Spirit of Void and Chaos that had just had its fill would fall into slumber to digest the food it ate.
But this time, they didn’t hurry back inside the Soul Suppressing Orb at all. In fact, they were leading him down a certain direction.
It was obvious that the Spirits of Void and Chaos were not affected by the absolute darkness of this Origin World.
He, Gan Xing, Nan Qi, and the others could only see as far as a dozen or so meters away from them even with the light of two Darklight Stones.
Anything beyond that remained completely dark.
Since their vision was limited to a range of a dozen or so meters, there were very few meaningful things that they could do.
But the Spirits of Void and Chaos were obviously not like them.
It had almost been an hour since they started moving, but the Spirits of Void and Chaos still hadn’t slowed down. This meant that their ability to perceive normal and unusual things was quite expansive.
In fact, Qin Lie had a feeling that their power of perception was stronger here than when they were outside.
Everyone’s eyes and soul were blinded when they entered this place, but the Spirits of Void and Chaos… seemed to only have gotten stronger.
“Winged Race clansmen!”
Suddenly, Gan Xing exclaimed and stopped in his tracks.
Qin Lie came back to himself and looked back towards the front. His expression had changed as well.
A group of youngsters with white wings behind their backs laid dead on the ground, bloodied and mangled.
He only needed a glance to identify these white-winged youngsters as part of the galaxy renowned Winged Race.
The Winged Race wasn’t as powerful or reputable as the four transcendent races, but they were a powerful race.
The eight Winged Race clansmen lying on the ground looked like they had been shredded or chewed by some terrifying beasts. Their bodies were a terrifying sight to behold.
Plenty of spirit artifacts were scattered next to their bodies as well. Among them was an emerald staff glowing with gentle green light and faint life aura.
It would seem that the wood spirit had come for the emerald, gem-studded staff.
By the time Qin Lie got a good look of the scene, he discovered that the wood spirit had entangled itself around the emerald staff in the form of a life tree.
Traces of rich life force was converted into wood spirit energy and absorbed by the wood spirit.
When Levy noticed the wood spirit and what it was doing, he hurriedly dashed towards it in an attempt to stop it.
“Don’t!” Qin Lie shouted.
Levy turned back in confusion before yelling, “That thing is absorbing the staff’s energy!”
Qin Lie said calmly, “It belongs to me.”
Levy was surprised by his answer.
“What is that thing?” Gan Xing moved closer curiously.
“I don’t know about you guys, but we call them the Spirits of Void and Chaos. They are all in my care.” Qin Lie gave them a quick explanation. “Also, the reason I noticed that something was amiss with this place wasn’t because I was able to sense it myself. They were the ones who told me.”
Levy, Nan Qi, and the others immediately grew a measure of respect and awe towards the Spirits of Void and Chaos.
Everyone here was forcefully blinded by the absolute darkness of this place, but it turned out that the Spirits of Void and Chaos weren’t affected by it at all.
It made them curious.
Seeing that they weren’t going to attack the Spirits of Void and Chaos anytime soon, Qin Lie walked towards the thunder spirit and water spirit this time.
The thunder spirit—a miniature Thunder Crystal Beast—was consuming several lightning jades strung around a dead corpse’s waist.
Those jades clearly contained a large amount of lightning and thunder.
At another side, the water spirit was also extracting a jade from a Winged Race clansman’s forehead and devouring it whole.
The earth spirit and metal spirit floated around in search of their own targets, but they seemed to be coming up short so far.
“There’s a high rank Abyss Devil’s corpse here!” Nan Qi called out loudly.
After making some simple exchanges with the Spirits of Void and Chaos using his mind, Qin Lie walked next to Nan Qi.
A brawny high rank Abyss Devil with shock haircut and sharp horns around his neck was lying on the ground, his chest penetrated by a sharp object. It looked like his blood had stopped flowing since some time ago.
“He’s been dead for some time.” Nan Qi analyzed with a serious look. “These Winged Race clansmen had probably run into a troop of high rank Abyss Devils, and they were wiped out mercilessly by their opponents. From the marks on the battlefield and how spread out they were, I believe that both sides didn’t have a Darklight Stone. That is why these items were left behind in this place.”
“These high rank Abyss Devils only lost one person, but the Winged Race clansmen... were either killed here or fleeing from pursuit, even though both sides didn’t have a Darklight Stone,” Gan Xing said seriously.
“The Winged Race clansmen were inferior to the high rank Abyss Devils to begin with, so it’s natural that they would suffer a terrible defeat,” Nan Qi said indifferently.
Qin Lie recalled his battle against Vicente battle a while ago as he stared at the horribly mutilated corpses. His eyes became shrouded with gloom.
“Why are you looking like that?” Liu Yang curled her lips before remarking disdainfully, “These Winged Race clansmen are definitely weaker than us. Those high rank Abyss Devils would have been the ones to die if they had run into us. It’s suicide for powerless people to enter this place.”
Qin Lie’s cheeks twitched unnaturally at the comment.
“Powerless people, huh…”
Bitterness filled his heart as Ling Yushi and Gao Yu suddenly entered his mind. Suddenly, his heart felt incredibly heavy.
He had learned from the Soul Beast avatar that Ling Yushi, Gao Yi, Ling Xuanxuan and a couple of rank seven Nether Realm bloodline warriors had been sent into this secret realm by a devil monarch.
Although Ling Yushi’s bloodline had reached rank seven, Gao Yu and Ling Xuanxuan’s combat strength were a lot weaker than hers.
It was hard to tell if Nether Realm’s rank seven bloodline warriors were even stronger than their equals in the Winged Race. So what would happen to them if they ran into powerful Abyss Devils or the Bloodthirst Family warriors led by Hao Jie?
The moment he thought of this possibility, fear suddenly joined the deep worry plaguing his mind.
“I hope that good luck is on your side. I hope that you all can run into me as soon as possible…”
He could only pray in his mind.
“You look terrible. What’s going on?” Liu Yang asked caringly.
“It’s nothing.” Qin Lie shook his head, but complicated emotions were starting to cloud his eyes.
Ling Yushi and Ling Xuanxuan had purple hair, so they looked just like high rank Abyss Devils. The Horned Demon Race and Ghost Eye Race shared the appearance of Abyss Devils as well.
If his squad really were to run into Ling Yushi and the others, how on earth was he going to convince these God Race clansmen to accept them as they were?
Could he seriously convince them to help a bunch of weak high rank Abyss Devils and treat them as companions?
Would Gan Xing and Nan Qi accept such a thing?
He felt a headache when he thought about this.
Suddenly, this trip was looking a lot less appealing than it was before.
It was at this moment the earth spirit contacted him with its soul. It seemed to have discovered something.
“There’s soul activity nearby…” Qin Lie realized and pondered for a moment. Then he said, “Everyone follow me, there’s life not far away from here!”
“Hmm!” Everyone gathered around him immediately.
Guided by the earth spirit, the squad controlled the two Darklight Stones and sent them flying down the direction Qin Lie pointed.
A few minutes later, a terribly wounded male and a female Winged Race clansmen entered their vision.
Both Winged Race clansmen were covered in bloody wounds from head to toe. They had probably been running for their lives the moment they saw the approaching Darklight Stones.
Unfortunately for them, they were terribly wounded to begin with, and the earth spirit had their auras completely locked down.
There was nothing they could do except watch as Qin Lie and the others got closer and closer.
“The God Race!”
The two of them wailed in despair when they saw the burning flames around Nan Qi beneath the Darklight Stone.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
