Tian Qi had obtained the Scepter of Fate, and Castor had revived from the dead. He had accomplished all of his main objectives.
Between Austin and Castor, only one of them could become the new Abyss Master anyway, not to mention that he favored Castor’s chances a bit more from the beginning.
Finally, Austin’s death hardly affected his own plans…
“Are you going to leave, Tian Qi?” Castor asked with a frown.
“That’s right,” Tian Qi said calmly. “I’m not going to let my clansmen die in droves because of you. Two of your avatars have already awakened, and I know it’s only a matter of time before you return to peak form and become the Abyss Master once more.”
Time around Tian Qi started to return to normal.
The purple lotuses flying toward Tian Qi and tugging at his soul suddenly worked faster.
Qin Lie’s Light of Annihilation abruptly moved faster toward Tian Qi.
However, Tian Qi suddenly turned blurry and illusory.
Qin Lie immediately realized that his target seemed to have turned into thin air.
His attack failed to hit anything as a result.
Moreover, Auston’s soul secret art actually turned on Qin Lie instead.
Realizing what had happened, both Auston and Qin Lie hurriedly withdrew their power.
Tian Qi appeared next to Indigo while still gripping the Scepter of Fate.
After teleporting away from Auston and Qin Lie, Tian Qi looked at the duo from below and frowned slightly. “It’s time to leave,” he told the Spirit Race clansmen.
“But Great Sage, isn’t the abyss passageway still closed?” a rank ten Spirit Race warrior asked.
Tian Qi answered with a faint smile on his face, “That Qin Hao’s power of destruction broke the spatial crystal barrier. Everything had changed since that moment.”
A prismatic crystal suddenly flew out of his sleeves and hovered vertically in front of him.
It suddenly grew ten times larger than normal. The world reflected inside the crystal was none other than the Spirit World.
“Let’s return home,” Tian Qi said gently.
The Spirit Race warriors wordlessly rushed through the enlarged prismatic crystal.
The Spirit Race clansmen and their demon pets soon vanished from Nine Hells Purgatory.
Assad did his best to hold back Qin Hao with the Profound Heaven Spirit Orb and buy time for his retreating clansmen.
Qin Hao’s expression immediately darkened when he saw Tian Qi.
The spatial barrier of this area had become multiple times stronger after Tian Qi arrived.
Not even the Light of Annihilation was able to melt it down immediately.
He had no choice but to watch the Spirit Race warriors and their demon pets leave through the prismatic crystal under Tian Qi’s assistance.
In just dozens of seconds, all Spirit Race warriors who were below rank ten had left Nine Hells Purgatory.
Assad grabbed the Profound Heaven Spirit Orb and stared at Qin Hao, his icy blue pupils promising retribution. “We will not forget the atrocities you’ve committed today.”
Sitting on top of his nine-level Soul Altar, Qin Hao frowned and asked, “What are you going to do about that?”
“You may have the protection of the God Race, but your home realm isn’t as safe as you think,” Assad threatened.
Then, Tian Qi cut Assad off with a wave of his hand and said, “Just leave him to Lieyan Yuan.”
Suddenly, Castor’s avatar slipped into the spatial hole Qin Hao had created without warning.
An instant later, the Abyss Devil had vanished without a trace.
Tian Qi urged the remaining rank ten Spirit Race warriors to leave.
“The power of fate is still going to affect you for a short while. Enjoy.” Tian Qi said his parting words before vanishing together with the prismatic crystal.
After he had made up his mind, the entire Spirit Race had evacuated from Nine Hells Purgatory in over a minute.
Castor had also left through the hole in the sky.
The Abyss Devils had thought that the battle would continue until the bitter end, but their enemies had escaped before some of them could react.
Most of the Great Lords of the Abyss stared blankly at where their enemies had disappeared to with a dazed look on their faces.
“Did they just… leave?”
“How can the Spirit Race just leave like that? Also, how did they ignore the spatial crystal barrier of the Abyss?”
“I thought they were going to conquer Nine Hells Purgatory?”
Dawson and the Great Lords of the Abyss he had brought couldn’t help but complain in confusion.
Inside Nether City, Ming Xiao, Qin Shan, and the others looked distracted as well.
“Qin Lie, is it possible to reseal that hole in the sky?” Auston asked suddenly.
Even Qin Lie was a little puzzled by the sudden turn of events.
Tian Qi and the Spirit Race clansmen had suddenly left just like that. He couldn’t quite figure out that the Great Sage was playing at.
Auston reminded him again, but moved slightly away from Qin Lie.
He was afraid of the Light of Annihilation surrounding Qin Lie’s soul.
Frankly, not even he had any real ways of dealing with the Dark Shadow World’s Light of Annihilation.
Qin Lie could create a body out of the Light of Annihilation and control it. Qin Hao also possessed the power of destruction. Their very existence was a source of pressure to him.
In his opinion, both Qin Lie and Qin Hao were monsters beyond his imagination.
In the past, he would never imagine that a weak race like the humans could produce someone like Qin Hao.
He decided that he would pay more attention to Spirit Realm and study what exactly was so special about the human race after today.
In fact, he had a feeling that Nine Hells Purgatory would benefit greatly if he could find a way to connect the two realms.
Qin Hao seemed to have heard Auston’s request, because he moved his nine-level Soul Altar toward the giant hole.
It was a strange sight, but the foreign light spilling into Nine Hells Purgatory suddenly froze in midair when Qin Hao’s Soul Altar passed through the giant hole.
Moreover, the hole started shrinking bit by bit as if it had a consciousness of its own.
Even the Light of Annihilation surrounding Qin Lie had flown back into the closing hole.
Without the Light of Annihilation, Qin Lie was just a naked subsoul.
Auston stared at Qin Hao and his nine-level Soul Altar in astonishment.
He was the Devil Monarch of Nine Hells Purgatory. He knew full well just how tough the spatial crystal barrier of the Eight Purgatories was.
The amount of people who could break through the spatial crystal barrier and travel to the Abyss Purgatories directly could literally be counted on two hands.
Tian Qi and Lieyan Yuan were both experts in the power of space. That was why they were to break the spatial crystal barrier and lead the God Race and the Spirit Race into the Abyss Purgatories.
Most races simply didn’t have enough power to break through the space of the Abyss Purgatories even if they were well-versed with the power of space.
Qin Hao was clearly unfamiliar with the power of space, but somehow he was able to break the space of Nine Hells Purgatory by force.
If that was all he did, then it wasn’t really that strange. But to close a spatial hole with his nine-level Soul Altar?
How could he do this when he was unfamiliar with the power of space?
To Auston, the answer was beyond imagination.
