Chapter 1290: End of A Stage
Qin Lie sat on top of the Origin Crystal with a clear heart and peaceful expression.
Wisps of soul energy flowed down his Soul Lake and entered the crystal beneath him.
His Soul Lake gradually dried up over time...
But not only did he look completely fearless, his eyes glowed brightly, and a small smile adorned his features.
After all, the most fundamental change that occured when a martial practitioner ascended from the Nirvana Realm to the Imperishable Realm, was the replacement of one's Soul Lake with a Soul Altar!
The fact that his Soul Lake's soul energy was merging with the Origin Crystal beneath him was a sign that his Soul Altar was taking form.
His recognition of the power and spirit energy of lightning, earth, blood and so on seemed to have transformed into some sort of imperceptible worldly network that was projected onto the Origin Crystal.
Qin Lie felt like he was becoming one with the Origin Crystal beneath him. At the same time, a sudden thought gradually entered his mind.
The translucent crystal suddenly flew out from beneath his feet and shrank continuously right in front of his chest.
A couple of seconds later, the crystal that was the size of a lotus platform earlier had become as small as a fingernail.
There was a hot white flash, and the tiny Origin Crystal passed through his flesh to enter his mind.
An instant later, the Origin Crystal appeared inside his soul consciousness.
The Origin Crystal swelled at a rapid pace after a crack of lightning.
The fingernail-sized Origin Crystal became as big as a thousand acre field inside his soul consciousness in just the blink of an eye.
Countless strange reactions sparked inside the gigantic Origin Crystal.
Before Qin Lie could react, his True Soul was sucked out of his Soul Lake andi into the crystal.
The powers and soul energy that had flown into the crystal earlier immediately built a new connection with his True Soul.
Suddenly, he felt as if his True Soul was still lying inside his Soul Lake, comfortable and peaceful.
Lightning occasionally flashed inside his vast soul consciousness. Now that Qin Lie's True Soul had entered the Origin Crystal, the crystal's transformation into a Soul Altar had officially begun.
With the Origin Crystal as the foundation, a Soul Altar made up of Qin Lie's Sky Piercing ancient spirit diagram, powers, spirit arts, soul energy, and True Soul was slowly but surely taking form.
He also felt like his True Soul was becoming one with the Origin World. In fact, the Origin World felt like an infinitely bigger version of his Flame World.
It was almost as if he would become the one and only God of the Origin World if he successfully constructs his Soul Altar!
His Eight-eyed Demon Spirit bloodline stirred restlessly. It would seem that he could build a connection to the outside world already.
There were no longer any obstacles standing between his main soul and his Soul Beast avatar either
Over time, the feeling that the entire world was within his grasp slowly appeared from within his True Soul.
Lightning and spatial energies occasionally spilled out from above his head.
A spatial door formed above his head as he willed it into existence.
The God Race, the Abyss Devils, the Spirit Race, the Bone Race, and the Winged Race clansmen all stared at him in surprise.
It was at this moment the Satorius Family clansmen suddenly howled in pain.
The commotion they caused attracted everyone's attention.
Suddenly, green ghostfire appeared inside their eyes.
They were all going to die one way or another, but in that moment, Thamur was sucking their souls with greenish soul threads that looked like wet, venomous snakes.
Light faded bit by bit from the Satorius Family clansmen's shrunken eyes.
They clutched their heads and screamed in pain, but there was nothing they could do to stop the process.
They all stared fixatedly at Oktan.
Oktan turned his back to them and unleashed a violent torrent of spatial energy from his chest.
A rice-sized black dot slowly took form as he poured his bloodline power into it.
The space around him seemed to be contracting and collapsing rapidly. The black dot seemed capable of drawing any power into it.
“Black Hole of Death!” Sienna exclaimed.
Thamur's soul flew out of the body he was possessing and took the form of a green soul flame.
The refined souls he had forcefully drawn out of the Satorius Family members’ bodies poured into the Black Hole of Death Oktan had created.
Oktan abruptly looked up and stared deeply at Indigo. Then, he shot Qin Lie a hateful glare before he transformed into a beam of light that entered the swelling black hole.
Thamur's green soul flame was right behind him.
The strange black hole continued to wriggle and suck in all kinds of power even after its creator had disappeared. Then, a terrible explosion resounded from inside the black hole.
Just before the Black Hole of Death had vanished completely, a bloodcurdling scream that belonged to Oktan and a painful soul cry that belonged to Thamur could be heard.
It sounded like they had suffered massive injuries after they were consumed by the black hole.
The black hole suddenly vanished to nothingness.
“Did he just… commit suicide?” Stanca of the Winged Race asked blankly and dumbfoundedly. “A swelling black hole that explodes can annihilate all living things. Forget them, not even a rank nine or rank ten bloodline warrior could survive such an explosion.”
“Oktan must have gone insane,” Sienna added in agreement.
“It sure looks like he's committed suicide,” Salleh sneered.
“That's incorrect.” Indigo shook her head slightly before explaining, “It looks like Thamur had created a portal into an unknown spatial rift and brought Oktan with him just before the black hole exploded. That is why he needed the Satorius Family members’ refined souls. They might have to wander in some unknown chaotic streams of space for a while, but… there's a chance that they might survive this predicament.”
Everyone was shocked when they heard this.
“What? They might survive even this?” Stanca said in a heavy tone.
“It's definitely a possibility,” Indigo said.
Salleh snorted coldly. “He tried to kill you, didn't he? If you leave this place alive, he'll be hunted down by the entire Spirit Race even if he escapes somehow, right?”
“Their attempt to murder the Young Mistress is no different from betraying the entire Spirit Race! We will annihilate the entire Satorius Family!” Sienna declared harshly.
“Not a single member of the Satorius Family will be left alive!” shouted the rest of the Spirit Race group.
Bolts of lightning started converging into one spot.
They slowly turned into a glowing Star Door right next to Gan Xing.
Gan Xing was surprised by the portal. When he subconsciously turned to look at Qin Lie, he discovered that the latter's eyes were still closed.
“It's the Extreme Flame Abyss!” Liu Yang cheered.
Gan Xing glanced at the Star Door again, finally understanding what was going on. He said with a somewhat complicated look, “Qin Lie is telling us to leave.”
“I understand.” Liu Yang sighed quietly.
“Let's go, there's no point hanging around here any longer,” Ming Xu said indifferently.
The remaining God Race clansmen stood up and lent Cang Ye and Hao Jie their support. Then, they stepped into the open Star Door led by Ming Xu and Gan Xing.
It didn't take long before the God Race clansmen were completely gone.
The inside of the Star Door changed before it moved next to Diga and the Ling Family members on its own.
Enos shot a glance at the Star Door before exclaiming, “Frost Desolation Abyss!”
At the same time, Ling Yushi walked over from the edge of the Origin Sea and cast a glance at the Star Door as well. She too came to realization when she saw the ice pillars on the other side of the portal.
She pondered for a moment before saying, “If you wish to leave this place alive, you should move to the Frost Desolation Abyss first before transferring to the Abyss levels of your choice.”
“I guess that's our only choice then.” Diga smiled wryly.
The surviving Abyss Devils left the Origin World through the portal Qin Lie had purposely opened for them under Ling Yushi and Diga's command.
Not long after, the high rank Abyss Devils were completely gone as well.
“What about us, sister?” Ling Xuanxuan asked.
“We should leave too. It's going to take a long time for Qin Lie to completely refine the Origin Crystal into his Soul Altar. There's no telling what might happen in the Origin World during this period,” Ling Yushi said.
“Oh. Okay.” Ling Xuanxuan nodded.
“The rest of you should head to the Frost Desolation Abyss too.” Ling Yushi suddenly looked at Indigo before saying, “He can only connect to the Frost Desolation Abyss and Extreme Flame Abyss. He can't send you to other realms.”
“No, we're not going to the Frost Desolation Abyss.” Indigo gave Ling Yushi a smile before continuing, “I know that there's one more place he can send us to.”
“Where?” Ling Yushi asked in surprise.
“Spirit Realm,” Indigo answered.
Ling Yushi shuddered before asking, “Who on earth are you?!”
“Just ask him when he's free in the future.”
Indigo thought for a moment before adding seriously, “My identity's a little sensitive, so I'm worried that the Great Lords of either the Extreme Flame Abyss or Frost Desolation Abyss might give me trouble if I head there.”
She was the Spirit Race's strongest Spirit Seed. If she were to show up at the Frost Desolation Abyss carelessly, and if Enos were to reveal her identity, the Great Lord of Frost Desolation Abyss might take action against her immediately.
She wouldn't be able to return to the Spirit Race through the abyss passageway if that were to happen.
She had no choice but to act with great caution.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
