Chapter 1432: Purgatory Devils
The abyss devil energy near the Origin Sea suddenly became chaotic and began to gather.
In a short while, the thick abyss devil energy enshrouded the newcomers.
Qin Lie and Cohen of the Black Bog Abyss saw the disturber and immediately stopped fighting.
They frowned and looked at the newly-arrived challengers.
Cohen looked down, and frowned slightly. He said, "You come from the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory?"
The high rank Abyss Devil dressed in grand, noble clothes and Abyss Devil patterns over his exposed skin performed an ancient traditional bow of the Abyss. He grinned brightly and said, "I am Locke."
Cohen's expression grew more grave. "The son of the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch?"
Locke smiled and nodded.
Cohen frowned, his enormous pair of saw-like wings slowly flapping.
Yet the sticky purple poison that his wings secreted went back into his wings.
He appeared to not be in a hurry to fight Qin Lie. He gathered abyss devil energy to recover as he looked curiously at Locke. "You’ve also come for him?"
Locke's eyes narrowed, mysterious characters of the Abyss flashing within. His eyes gave off a soul-searching observing power.
He looked deeply at Qin Lie.
Qin Lie's Abyss Devil Race bloodline suddenly started to boil under his gaze.
Circles of purple light came from Qin Lie's body and formed an umbrella of light that protected his body.
Locke moved his gaze away and chuckled. He said, "Are you Qin Lie?"
"Yes." Qin Lie nodded.
"I come from the Eight Purgatories. My father is the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch. Not long ago, my father and I went to the Nine Hells Purgatory, and saw a daughter of the Nine Hells Purgatory who had been lost..." Locke suddenly stopped.
Qin Lie's eyes flashed with light.
"Her name is Ling Yushi. You should know her?" Locke's expression suddenly darkened, his eyes brewing with savageness and bloodthirst. "Of course you know her! My father took me in person to Nine Hells Purgatory in the hope that Ling Yushi and I will marry. He hoped that the bloodline of the two Devil Monarchs would merge! Even the Nine Hells Monarch showed great interest in this matter. But that daughter of his, Ling Yushi, said she already had an engagement! She said that that person was the one who took the Origin World. That is you, right?"
Behind Locke, the Abyss Devils all dressed in heavy armor roared.
An ancient and primitive secret language of the Abyss seemed to echo through the Flaming Sun Abyss through their shouts.
In the air, many invisible Abyss Devil patterns spread in waves.
Qin Lie and Cohen listened to the roaring of the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory Abyss Devils, their gazes turning grave.
They had to activate their bloodline power to resist the waves of the patterns in the sky that came at them.
"Yes, Ling Yushi and I are engaged." Qin Lie pressed one hand on his chest, the other tapping his forehead. His eyes sharpened. "You have objections?"
The thick abyss devil energy that had gathered around Locke and his subordinates suddenly retracted at Qin Lie’s gesture.
The abyss devil energy resembled purple snakes that slithered their way back to Qin Lie.
It gathered into an enormous whirlpool, with Qin Lie in the very center.
He himself was the center of the whirlpool!
"What objections do I have? You ask if I have objections?" Locke snarled. "The daughter of the Nine Hells Monarch has his powerful Soul Hell bloodline latent ability, the core ability of the Nine Hells Monarch! If I can marry her, I can use that powerful bloodline latent ability to strengthen my power! I can use her bloodline power to advance my bloodline, and have hope of becoming a rank ten Great Lord of the Abyss, and become the Devil Monarch of the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory!"
"Oh, and?" Qin Lie stood in the center of the enormous purple-black whirlpool like a glacier. "Then she and the Nine Hells Monarch refused you together?"
Locke suddenly gave a beastly howl. "She said I am inferior to you and do not qualify to take her hand!"
Qin Lie nodded and said seriously, "It is true."
Locke howled wildly.
Strange Abyss Devil patterns flashed on his body, becoming clearly visible. The refined clothing he wore turned to dust at the eruption of his bloodline power.
Completely naked, Locke roared wildly in the air, his seemingly tall and thin body expanding and transforming at a visible rate.
"Do not interfere, I will crush him with my own hands, and swallow his heart!" Locke shouted.
The heavily-armored Abyss Devils behind him did not make a sound, and retreated.
They clearly had absolute confidence in Locke's strength and believed the bloodline descendant of the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch had an absolute advantage in other Abyss levels.
Usually, the Abyss Devils of the Eight Purgatories had stronger bloodlines at the same rank.
The bloodline descendants of the Devil Monarchs were known to be stronger than the descendants of the other levels’ Great Lords of the Abyss.
This was why Cohen of the Black Bog Abyss had a serious expression once he confirmed Locke came from the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory.
This was the newly-formed Flaming Sun Abyss, and not the Black Bog Abyss that had given birth to Cohen. The powerful bloodline latent abilitys he had could only be used to full effect in the Black Bog Abyss.
In the unfamiliar Flaming Sun Abyss, even Cohen had no confidence he could win against the bloodline descendant of a Devil Monarch.
Due to this, when he saw Cohen was undergoing devilization after being provoked by Qin Lie, he wisely retreated to the side.
"Qin Lie? You are the creator of the Flaming Sun Abyss, you should have your advantages in this level," Cohen spoke to Qin Lie as he retreated. "If you can use your advantage wisely, maybe... you have a chance of victory, but just a thread."
He did not want to see Locke kill Qin Lie.
He was a true member of the Abyss Devil Race and understood the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory and its monarch better than Qin Lie.
Locke was a bloodline descendant of the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch and must have also inherited the other's temper. This meant that if he killed Qin Lie and became the creator of the Flaming Sun Abyss, all the beings who entered the Flaming Sun Abyss would be killed.
Right now, Cohen was considering if he should leave the Flaming Sun Abyss while Locke and Qin Lie fought.
Yet just as he had this thought, Locke's words ruthlessly interrupted him.
"All the people who have gathered near the Origin Sea and those who came later are not allowed to leave!" Locke said.
The heavily-armored Abyss Devils who had come from the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory heard his orders, their murderous gazes concentrating on Cohen.
Cohen's brow furrowed. He immediately dismissed the thought of leaving and stopped in the air.
He knew with his own strength, he was not a match for so many armored Abyss Devils. He remained in place.
"I need you to see how I tear him apart and eat his Abyss Devil heart!" Locke said, licking the corners of his mouth.
"Alright." Cohen nodded.
At the same time.
A seemingly ordinary Abyss Devil stopped in another part of the Origin Sea and raised his hand.
Oktan suddenly stopped and asked curiously, "What is it?"
Thamur, who had taken possession of an Abyss Devil, had green ghostfire flashing in his purple eyes.
He seemed to open his soul eye and pointed at the gray sky. "A group of powerful Abyss Devils has surrounded Qin Lie. One of them... should come from the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory!"
"Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory?!" Oktan shook.
"If I am not wrong, he should be the bloodline descendant of the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch. He is undergoing devilization right now. The presence of the Sacrificial Ghost Monarch's bloodline is growing clearer." Thamur took a deep breath as though he smelled something. "There’s another Abyss Devil with terrifying corrosive presence as well. He should come from the Black Bog Abyss. Ha, we do not have to hurry. Let them tire out Qin Lie first."
Oktan nodded and stopped.
"Those people did not enter the Origin World with us back then. They do not know how difficult Qin Lie is.” Thamur laughed lowly. "Right now, the presence that Qin Lie gives off is only that of an Abyss Devil. He has not used his God Race bloodline, merged with the Flesh Filling Tombstone, or utilized the spirit energy the Spirit Realm races use. That person from the Sacrificial Ghost Purgatory thinks that Qin Lie is only a lucky Abyss Devil."
"So pitiful," Oktan said in schadenfreude. "That guy doesn’t even know that Diga, who had also come from one of the Purgatories, was soundly defeated by Qin Lie?"
"I am very happy a pitiful worm will first test the waters for us." Thamur laughed darkly.
