Long after Li Xin and Metcina left.
Three figures suddenly appeared in the air above the ruins of Lawton's palace.
"A Great Lord of the Abyss has come here."
Han Che, the patriarch of the Profound Ice Family, sensed Metcina's Abyss Devil presence at a sniff.
"Yes, the other person should be... a subordinate of Lieyan Yuan, a foreigner called Li Xin," Lieyan Zhao said
"Qin Lie's presence is across the shore." An Hao of the Darkness Family frowned.
Han Che, Lieyan Zhao, and An Hao had hurried over to search for Qin Lie.
The God Race, after several discussions, decided to bring Qin Lie back.
First, they needed to understand Qin Lie's bloodline abnormality. Secondly, this was to protect Qin Lie from being killed by the Abyss Devils.
Han Che already learned that Qin Lie had caused a great disturbance when he completely transformed into a Lord of the Abyss.
Qin Lie had killed many rank nine Abyss Devils in his madness and taken their hearts.
They did not know about the mysterious power capable of controlling the dead souls, but they knew that if Qin Lie dared to rampage in the purgatory, even with his Abyss Devil status, he would be targeted by the Great Lords of Yellow Springs Purgatory.
In reality, Metcina had come in search of him. If she and Blood Emperor hadn't formed an agreement, Qin Lie may have been killed already.
"Where did you see him last time?" An Hao asked.
Han Che said gravely, "Definitely not across the river."
At the words, Lieyan Zhao reacted and said, "He crossed the Nether River?"
Among the three, only Lieyan Zhao didn't have a Flesh Filling Tombstone and couldn’t feel Qin Lie's location.
But he knew how mysterious and strange the Nether River of the Eight Purgatories was.
Based on his knowledge, not even the Great Lords of Yellow Springs Purgatory dared to rashly cross the Nether River.
Lords of the Abyss with their rank nine bloodlines would most likely be destroyed if they accidentally intruded when the Nether River's boundary was not gone.
"Yes, he crossed the Nether River and also... is living well." An Hao inhaled deeply, his expression uncertain. "Even if he completely transformed into a Lord of the Abyss, he should not be able to cross the Nether River. There is only one reason he can live after cross the Nether River..."
"What is it?" Lieyan Zhao said curiously.
"You should know how the Nether River formed?" An Hao said
Lieyan Zhao shook and said, "You mean?"
"The Nether River is formed from the body of the Abyss Master after he passed away. Even though the Abyss Master is dead, his inextinguishable resolve still has passed down through the Nether River." An Hao's eyes were deep. "Qin Lie is not one of the First Devils, but he was able to turn into a complete Lord of the Abyss after his bloodline reached rank nine. Even if he has the Abyss Devil Race bloodline, it should not be like this, unless... the core ability in his Abyss Devil Race bloodline is related to this Nether River."
"The Nether River is the deceased Abyss Master!" Han Che shouted.
"In other words, he has comprehended the Abyss Master's bloodline power?" Lieyan Zhao paled.
"His Abyss Devil Race bloodline is able to suppress our race's bloodline. It must be because of this!" An Hao's expression was dark. "Your Blaze Family's Flesh Filling Tombstone has always been with him. But he still transformed into a complete Lord of the Abyss. The power of the Abyss Devil Race bloodline is obvious."
Lieyan Zhao and Han Che suddenly grew silent.
A long time later, An Hao sighed and said, "Let's go."
"What?" Lieyan Zhao frowned.
"We are not Abyss Devils, the risk if we rashly cross the Nether River is too great." An Hao seemed to have thought through and said, "Everything will depend on him. If he only has a Abyss Devil Race bloodline left the next time we see him, we can only think of him as an Abyss Devil."
"As an enemy?" Han Che understood.
"Yes. Such a dominant Abyss Devil Race bloodline... If it cannot be suppressed, it will kill all other bloodlines, including the God Race bloodline nurtured by the Flesh Filling Tombstone. But if he can control his Abyss Devil Race bloodline, and thinks of himself as one of us, if the God Race bloodline hasn't disappeared, and still exists in his body..."
"Then he will be one of us."
An Hao said.
Han Che and Lieyan Zhao were silent for a long while. They nodded silently and did not argue.
Standing on the shores of the Nether River, they looked across and after a long time, they disappeared.
On the opposite shore.
In the bog, Qin Lie's enormous body slowly contracted.
He slowly shrank to his normal size.
This place was thin with abyss devil energy. He used his enormous soul to cover the surrounding hundreds of miles. All the Abyss Devils he felt were rank five and below.
"Lawton is hiding far away..."
He knew that Lawton was hiding in this place just like he was.
At this time, Lawton should be comprehending secrets of Afra and Daley’s bloodlines, and using hearts of the Lords of the Abyss they had killed earlier to fuel his breakthrough to rank ten.
Lawton must be worried that he would appear before the breakthrough so he hid far away.
He relaxed when he couldn't find Lawton's presence within hundreds of miles.
Just like Lawton, he wanted to fix his bloodline’s flaws.
In this period of time, Lawton did not want to encounter him, and he also did not want to encounter Lawton.
The grass suddenly floated up. The Ancient Life Tree on the grass gave off thick vitality.
At this time, when he attempted to merge the Ancient Life Tree into his bloodline, he heard the cheers of the wood spirit in the Soul Suppressing Orb.
Before he could react, a ray of green light flew out of his forehead.
The wood spirit, in the shape of a little tree, flashed and landed on the grass patch.
The Ancient Life Tree who had rooted into the grass was not repelled by the wood spirit. Its little leaves waved nimbly as snakes.
Qin Lie's expression changed and found something was strange.
Not long ago, when this Ancient Life Tree was rooted in the Frost Desolation Abyss, he stood under the Ancient Life Tree for some time. Even so, the wood spirit didn’t show much reaction.
This time, when Li Xin brought the Ancient Life Tree using a special method into Yellow Springs Purgatory and gave it for him to refine, the wood spirit suddenly flew out.
He knew that the wood spirit had a history with the Ancient Life Tree. The Wood Race thought of the Ancient Life Tree as their goddess, their Mother, and the creation of the Wood Race seemed to be connected to this Ancient Life Tree.
"Come back, I have a use for this thing," Qin Lie said to the wood spirit.
He knew the wood spirit could understand him.
The wood spirit chattered and waved its tree branches in communication.
Qin Lie listened intently, and gradually understood the wood spirit's meaning.
The wood spirit wanted him to root this Ancient Life Tree into the Flaming Sun Abyss.
According to the wood spirit, if the Ancient Life Tree planted roots in the Flaming Sun Abyss, it could change the vitality of the Flaming Sun Abyss, and give it great benefits.
He was the creator of the Flaming Sun Abyss. If the Flaming Sun Abyss changed magically due to the Ancient Life Tree, he would benefit as well.
"No, without this, my bloodline might explode," Qin Lie shouted.
As he spoke, he grabbed towards the damp grass, wanting to hold the miniature Ancient Life Tree.
"Yiya!" The wood spirit who never disobeyed him chattered urgently to object.
"Without it, I will die." Qin Lie lost his patience.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
The fire spirit, thunder spirit, water spirit, earth spirit, and metal spirit all flew out of the Soul Suppressing Orb.
The six Spirits of Void and Chaos shouted together.
At the same time, the Spirits of Void and Chaos bloodline that the Abyss Devil Race bloodline was suppressing in Qin Lie's body suddenly seemed to move.
The silver white bloodline crystal chains in his bloodline gave off blinding light.
The bloodline of the Spirits of Void and Chaos was like the fuse that caused more bloodline explosions in Qin Lie's body
The God Race bloodline and the Demon Spirit of Space and Time bloodline also surged.
His second heart gave off ear-deafening beating, and the strongest Abyss Devil Race bloodline also exploded.
In a flash, Qin Lie could not attend to the six Spirits of Void and Chaos and sat down cross-legged while panting.
He stared at the damp grass where the Ancient Life Tree was rooted.
As though they knew his thoughts, the six Spirits of Void and Chaos pulled the grass far from him.
The six Spirits of Void and Chaos waved their small arms as though they were explaining something.
But he was dazed by the bloodline conflict in his body. He could not hear what the Spirits of Void and Chaos were saying.
