Chapter 1379: Arriving At An Agreement
At a place where the ice and snow were fierce.
A golden giant who looked like he was made out of liquid metal was leaning against a glacier. His chest area was bleeding profusely.
Beside the golden giant lay a rank nine Lord of the Abyss. Its gigantic heart had been dug out of its torso.
Purple blood was flowing down the corner of the golden giant’s mouth, and its naked upper body was glowing brightly. His presence seemed as firm as a mountain.
Suddenly, a tornado appeared next to him out of nowhere. Qin Lie, Enos, and Dawson walked out of it.
The moment Dawson appeared, Banderas was immediately woken up from his trance. He immediately stopped feeding and got up to his feet.
It was at this moment a familiar figure abruptly entered his vision. “Qin Lie!”
“Banderas!” Qin Lie asked after a moment of surprise, “Has your bloodline reached rank ten?”
Golden light roamed around the giant’s body, and his refined flesh and blood energy was growing exponentially with every passing second. The giant gave Qin Lie a simple smile before replying in a deafening voice, “I just ate heart of the Lord of the Abyss, and the terrific flesh and blood energy it contained helped me break through my limits and reach rank ten.”
While saying this, Banderas looked at Dawson seriously and asked, “Who is he, Qin Lie? His Abyss Devil aura is even more terrifying than that Lord I just fought. He can’t be…” Banderas’s face changed when he arrived at the answer himself. Since Dawson hadn’t bothered to conceal his presence, Banderas already had an educated guess.
“I am Dawson.” The ruler of Frost Desolation Abyss grinned at him.
The moment Dawson started laughing, Banderas immediately activated his bloodline power in an attempt to fight him with all he got.
“Stop!” Qin Lie stopped him.
It was at this moment Qin Lie sensed another three terrifying presences in the distance. However, Dawson’s declaration had caused them to disappear all of a sudden.
It was then Qin Lie realized that the other three Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss had noticed Banderas’s breakthrough immediately just like Dawson did.
The three Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss had extended their soul presences all the way to this place. Then, they retreated immediately after Dawson had made his declaration.
It would seem that Dawson was also claiming responsibility over Banderas when he made that declaration.
“Qin Lie! He’s the strongest Abyss Devil in the entire Frost Desolation Abyss. Why are you with him?” Banderas asked urgently.
Dawson hadn’t manifested his true body, so both appearance and size wise he looked much smaller than Banderas and completely unassuming.
However, Banderas remained anxious after learning who the tiny man really was. Had Qin Lie not been present, Banderas would’ve prepared himself to run away already.
“Normally, if a foreign rank ten bloodline expert were to show up in the Frost Desolation Abyss.” Dawson focused on explaining to Qin Lie instead of looking at the overly tensed Banderas. “The four of us would treat it as an invasion and repel the invader accordingly.”
“On the other hand, if the foreign invader had yet to reach rank ten, and they obeyed the rules of the Frost Desolation Abyss, we will not interfere no matter how many Abyss Devils are killed in the process.”
“However, if a foreign invader were to ascend to rank ten in the Frost Desolation Abyss, then the four of us will show up and greet them.”
“This golden giant before you is one such example.”
Dawson looked up towards Banderas before chuckling to himself. “If we were feeling content at the time, we would request the ascendants to leave the Frost Desolation Abyss as soon as possible. But if we were not then…”
Dawson paused for a moment before continuing, “We would engage them in battle immediately! According to the rules of the Abyss, all those who had reached rank ten are powerful existences at the same level as we are! This means that it is not against the rules to fight a rank ten foreign invader! Whether they’ll make it out of the Frost Desolation Abyss before we hunt them down is entirely dependent on their luck!”
“My father normally chooses to chase down those types of invaders. He’ll either meet them at their place of ascension immediately, or travel straight to the abyss passageway,.” Enos interrupted. “If these people were able to make it to the abyss passageway or their realm entrances, then my father would stop pursuing. However, according to my knowledge, no one has managed to escape my father in recent years.”
Banderas’s expression distorted drastically.
Qin Lie was shocked as well.
Banderas had just ascended to rank ten using a heart of a Lord of the Abyss. If Dawson had chosen to attack him immediately, then Banderas might seriously not make it back to Boluo Realm.
It also meant that Dawson was entirely in the right to kill Banderas if he happened to be feeling “discontent”.
Before Qin Lie could recover from his bewilderment and suspicion, Dawson waved his hands and said, “You should head to Cadak’s territory and leave through their realm entrance right now. No one will stop you during your journey. However, do not forget that we are your opponents the next time you enter the Frost Desolation Abyss once more.”
“Qin Lie…” Banderas asked in confusion.
“Head back to Boluo Realm first. I’ll talk to you afterwards. Also, you should inform Tyler and the others that they shouldn’t complete their breakthrough to rank ten in the Frost Desolation Abyss if possible,” Qin Lie instructed.
“Okay.” Banderas left with unanswered questions.
Dawson chuckled, “If you promise to copulate with Enos, all of your companions may ascend to rank ten in the Frost Desolation Abyss and leave without hurry. As long as I’m still the Great Lord of the Frost Desolation Abyss, I promise that they will not be killed on the way.”
“That is not a bad condition. Is there anything else you can offer me?” Qin Lie asked.
He finally understood the reason Dawson had brought him over. He was using Banderas as his favor to Qin Lie, and to explain to him the laws of the Abyss in detail. It was all to obtain the bloodline he possessed.
“You may not be aware of this, but the God Race and Soul Race are all attempting to obtain you through me recently.” Dawson pondered for a moment before continuing, “The Blaze Family are aware that you often operate in the Frost Desolation Abyss. They’d offered me great things in exchange for your person.”
“Members of the Soul Race have also done the same thing. They’ve offered me things that I found quite difficult to turn down.”
If Dawson’s earlier conditions counted as his promises, then these ones were naked threats.
Dawson’s meaning was very clear. If Qin Lie dared to refuse his offer, he would turn Qin Lie in to the God Race or the Soul Race. He would use him to profit himself massively.
Qin Lie’s mind went blank for a second, but he quickly realized that he never had a choice to begin with. After shooting a glance at Enos, Qin Lie agreed obediently, “If the time is right, then… I’m willing to give Enos a child.”
Dawson grinned. “Then I shall promise you this; If Enos really does come to bear the third generation of my blood, then I’m willing to exit the Frost Desolation Abyss and protect you for the sake of this child, even if the entire God Race is my opponent!”
“Alright.” Qin Lie nodded.
They came to an agreement.
After that, Qin Lie appeared at La Pu’s place in a blink of an eye thanks to Dawson.
Dawson’s soul voice suddenly reached his ears. “It’s about time you start developing and evolving that Origin World of yours, and I will tell you my suggestions. If you can develop this Origin World into a complete Abyss level, then you will become the new Devil Monarch of that world.”
“Remember, the Origin World contains infinite wonders, and you can brand it with the laws and truths you’ve learned.”
“Be it the God Race’s, the Soul Race’s, or other bloodline powers and secrets, you can create them all inside the Origin World as long as they are familiar to you. They will aid you in understanding the laws of the lower Abyss levels. You must invest some time in your Origin World because it will be a powerful nucleus to you in the future.”
“Again, be sure to remember this!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
