"I can freely go in and out of the Eight Purgatories."
Qin Lie's expression was stern. After a pause, he continued, "I was attacked by Great Sage Tian Qi of the Spirit Race and was pulled into Yellow Springs Purgatory when traveling to God Realm. Not long ago, when the abyss passageway of the Eight Purgatories was closed, Tian Qi urged the God Race to force open the abyss passageway along with Lieyan Yuan. The Spirit Race went to Nine Hells Purgatory, and the God Race to Yellow Springs Purgatory..."
He recounted the recent happenings, "The Spirit Race are staying in Nine Hells Purgatory under Tian Qi's orders and are not willing to leave. If you want... I may be able to get you to Nine Hells Purgatory."
"You can send us to Nine Hells Purgatory?" Russell said in shock.
"Yes." Qin Lie nodded.
"How?" Dawson said.
Qin Lie hesitated and suddenly summoned the Galaxy Mirror. "You recognize this item?"
Russell and the other two Abyss Devils looked in puzzlement at the Galaxy Mirror. They shook their heads.
"What is it?" Russell was confused.
Qin Lie snickered and spun the multifaceted Galaxy Mirror with a finger. He presented each face in front of the four Great Lords of the Abyss.
He pointed one of the faces.
That facet suddenly shone with white light. Light and shadow flowed within to form a clear image.
Under a gray sky, an enormous abyss passageway connected two worlds like a giant twister.
Many Abyss Devils were gathered around that abyss passageway. The rank ten Abyss Devils, thousands of meters high, floated like giant mountains as they looked around.
Many Spirit Race clansmen stopped attacking the abyss passageway after receiving new orders from Tian Qi and were retreating slowly.
However, tens of thousands of corpses still remained on the ground.
The corpses belong to both sides. A kind of chilling and murderous presence seemed to come out of the scene in the crystal.
"This is... Nine Hells Purgatory?"
Russell looked into the mirror and realized as he saw the scene.
"Nine Hells Purgatory! It really is Nine Hells Purgatory!" a female Abyss Devil called Belle couldn't help but shout in shock. "It really is Nine Hells Purgatory! I see Azgalo!"
Belle was the third strongest Abyss Devil in the Frost Desolation Abyss even though her high rank Abyss Devil appearance was unremarkable.
If one did not know her origins, they would not imagine her noble status in the Frost Desolation Abyss and great power just from her appearance.
"You know Azgalo?" Qin Lie said curiously.
Previously, when he sneaked into Nine Hells through the Galaxy Mirror, the dragon-shaped Azgalo immediately noticed him and searched for him.
When Azgalo found he was a high rank Abyss Devil, he put his attention back on the Spirit Race and did not pay attention to him.
But because of Barett and the other demon dragons’ resemblance, he paid attention to Azgalo and remembered his name.
"Yes, I have interacted with Azgalo before, I know his identity," Belle answered.
Russell and Belle were shocked as they paid attention to Nine Hells Purgatory image in the crystal facet.
Only Dawson paid attention to the entire Galaxy Mirror. When he heard Belle confirm the scene came from Nine Hells Purgatory, Dawson shook.
He took a deep breath, his eyes filled with shook. "This, this thing... is the Galaxy Mirror?" he said in a hoarse voice.
Under his burning gaze, Qin Lie nodded minutely to confirm his guess.
"What is it?"
Russell, Belle, and the other Abyss Devils were puzzled.
They did not know the origins of the Galaxy Mirror.
Dawson glanced at him, sighed and said, "You have only become a Great Lord of the Abyss not long ago. It is normal you are unfamiliar with what happened a million years ago."
Before Russell could ask, Dawson shook his head and said, "I will explain the Galaxy Mirror to you later."
He turned to look at Qin Lie. He thought for a moment and said, "Can you send us to Nine Hells Purgatory without going through the abyss passageway?"
"Yes." Qin Lie was honest. "I know what the Eight Purgatories mean to you. The Spirit Race is active in Nine Hells Purgatory and Tian Qi will have more plans. If you are willing, I can send you to Nine Hells Purgatory and destroy the Spirit Race's plan.”
"Why not Yellow Springs Purgatory?" Dawson shouted.
Qin Lie hesitated and said, "Over in Yellow Springs Purgatory, the God Race and Abyss Devils will not fight, they have formed an agreement."
"Are you sure?" Dawson snorted.
He was part of the Abyss Devil Race. To him, no purgatory could be invaded.
Yellow Springs Purgatory and Nine Hells Purgatory were the same in his eyes—the foreign races were not allowed to invade.
Qin Lie possessed the Galaxy Mirror. This meant the opening and closing of the abyss passageway might be related to Qin Lie.
In a situation like this, Qin Lie clearly had his own selfish reasons for sending them to Nine Hells Purgatory and not Yellow Springs Purgatory—he was protecting the God Race.
He was slightly uncomfortable about this.
However, when he heard the Abyss Devils of Yellow Springs Purgatory and the God Race had formed an agreement, he felt slightly better.
"Temporarily, Yellow Springs Purgatory should not have a battle," Qin Lie said.
"You do not just want the four of us to go to Nine Hells Purgatory?" Dawson said.
Qin Lie grinned and said, "If you think the four of you alone... can reverse the state of Nine Hells Purgatory, then that is also possible."
Dawson thought for a moment and said, "I understand. I will communicate with the other Great Lords of the Abyss and see what they think."
"When you decide, you can tell him."
Qin Lie pointed at his Soul Beast avatar, bowed slightly to Dawson and the other three Abyss Devils before disappearing through the star door.
In the next moment, he appeared next to the dried up Nether River in Nine Hells Purgatory.
He communicated mentally with the soul servants of Sky Bearing City.
An hour later, he used the Galaxy Mirror and the Demon Spirit of Space and Time bloodline to form a star door next to the Nether River.
After the star door formed, figures slowly flew out.
The Flame Emperor, the Ice Emperor, Qin Hao, Ming Xiao, Ji Dan, Hua Tianqiong, Dan Yuanqing, Chen Lin, and the other human race experts who had reached Genesis Realm all stepped into Nine Hells Purgatory.
Looking at these Spirit Realm experts who flooded in with unknown intentions, he was dazed.
"How come you’re bringing so many?" He was shocked.
Qin Hao looked deeply at him and smiled saying, "It is time for the human race to formally enter the galaxy. Nine Hells Purgatory is just our first step."
Qin Lie stilled.
"Haha." Qin Shan slowly came at the end and said, "If we do not fight in the battles between the powerful races of the universe, the evolution of the human race will never accelerate."
