Land of Chaos, Flaming Sun Island.
After so many years, Flaming Sun Island had become the most famous place in the Land of Chaos.
Every Silver rank force in the Land of Chaos had undergone a complete transformation after the big shift in Boluo Realm and the invasion of the Frost Desolation Abyss.
Terminator Sect, Heavenly Sword Mountain, Celestial Artifact Sect, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, and Black Voodoo Cult had jumped from Silver rank to second tier Gold rank force.
It was because a great number of Void Realm experts were born among these forces.
Void Realm experts were the symbol of Gold rank forces.
The Curse Progenitor’s curse in the Land of Chaos had long since vanished due to Qin Lie’s interference.
An increasing number of Imperishable Realm experts had successfully ascended to Void Realm as a result.
Right now, all the great forces were guarded by at least several Void Realm martial practitioners.
The Land of Chaos used to be in a state of constant turmoil, but thanks to Qin Lie and the Flaming Sun Island, they had become an incredibly united and orderly.
“Qin Lie has returned to the Flaming Sun Island.”
“He’s finally back.”
“It’s been so many years. I almost thought he had an accident in the outer realms.”
Many flashes appeared from a large-scale teleportation formation on Flaming Sun Island.
Many Land of Chaos experts could be seen walking out of the teleportation formation and speaking cordially with each other.
Nan Zhengtian, Lei Yan and Chu Li of the Terminator Sect; Yan Bai and Luo Chen of the Heavenly Sword Mountain; Feng Yi, Luo Kexi and Luo Han of the Celestial Artifact Sect; Yu Lingwei of the Illusory Demon Sect; Mo Lingye and Xue Moyan of the Blood Fiend Sect; so on and so on had all arrived at the Flaming Sun Island after hearing of Qin Lie’s arrival.
These people used to be rulers of their respective territories in the Land of Chaos. Their relationship had been unfriendly to say the least.
However, the appearance of Qin Lie and the invasion of the three ghoul races ultimately pushed them to form a united front against the enemy.
Later on, Qin Lie had taken them to Boluo Realm with him.
Even further later, they followed Qin Lie into the Frost Desolation Abyss and fought against the Abyss Devils.
Before they knew it, Qin Lie had become everyone’s backbone. It was because they knew Qin Lie was the one who changed their fates.
They might stay in the Land of Chaos, but Boluo Realm still provided easy access to the Frost Desolation Abyss. In fact, the resources they were obtaining in a day weren’t too far from the Central World forces’.
Moreover, more martial practitioners from other forces and lands were quietly migrating to the Land of Chaos.
The Land of Chaos had become the second most attractive place for tempering and cultivating besides the Central World.
“A lot of old friends have arrived today.”
Qin Lie said with a smile inside the grandest palace of the Flaming Sun Island.
Song Tingyu and Tang Siqi were sitting on his left and right side.
Ever since they returned from Sky Bearing City, they had been listening to Qin Lie talking about his terrifying battles in the Abyss Purgatories.
Because they knew that the Qin Lie in front of them was in fact the Dark Soul Beast avatar, they had avoided engaging Qin Lie with physical intimacy.
In their eyes, Qin Lie’s true body was the only real Qin Lie.
Qin Lie was aware that he had a lot to make up to his wives, so he hadn’t bothered with the details of the alliance between the God Race and Sky Bearing City. Instead, he had accompanied them to the Flaming Sun Island.
Originally, he was planning to spend all his free time with his wives before he returned to the battlefield.
Unfortunately, someone had leaked his arrival and caused every reputable person in the Land of Chaos to show like the wind. The whole was packed with people right now.
He looked at the crowd from atop his palace. There were both old friends and former enemies, but even those enemies had become his comrades due to changing circumstances.
Examples of such people were Qi Yang of the Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, Feng Yi and Luo Han of the Celestial Artifact Sect, and so on.
“Ever since the Curse Progenitor’s curse in the Land of Chaos was lifted, everyone’s ascension to the Void Realm has become incredibly smooth,” Song Tingyu said with a smile. “We have close relations with Nether Realm, Boluo Realm, Frost Desolation Abyss; the Giant Race, the Asura Race, and even the Dragon Race of the Dragon Realm. All kinds of spirit materials are delivered to the Land of Chaos through our channels, and one can find almost any spirit material they need to forge their Soul Altars.”
A pause later, she declared with a bit of pride, “Not even the Central World is as good as us in terms of the sheer variety of spirit materials.”
“It’s all thanks to sister Tingyu,” Tang Siqi said with a sweet smile.
“Thank you for all your hard work,” Qin Lie said softly.
“I-it’s okay.” Feeling something tingly in her eyes, Song Tingyu said softly, “My talents were considered outstanding back when I was at the Scarlet Tide Continent, but I quickly learned that my cultivation talent was average at best when I came to the Land of Chaos. I can’t help you with artifact forging like Siqi, so I had to find other ways to support you…”
If she were to be honest with herself, she had been plagued a sense of inferiority all these years.
Although she had an endless supply of cultivation resources, her cultivation speed was slow at best. She didn’t know how to forge artifacts either, and she felt useless because there wasn’t much she could do to help Qin Lie.
Worse, every time she met Qin Lie, the latter had improved by leaps and bounds in both influence and power.
The pressure on her shoulders grew everyday. She thought that the chasm between Qin Lie and herself was too big to fill.
She had no choice but to do her best in what she was good at.
As a result, she single-handedly created the prosperity of Flaming Sun Island and slowly transformed the Land of Chaos into the center of Spirit Realm. Every day, countless powerful experts came to the Land of Chaos to temper themselves and cultivate.
Thanks to her efforts, the Land of Chaos was even better than the Central World when it came to cultivation in some aspects.
This was the reason why she had turned down Qin Shan’s subtle offers to take her and Tang Siqi back to the Central World.
Her plan was to transform Flaming Sun Island into a second Sky Bearing City. She wanted to lift the Land of Chaos even higher than the Central World and make it the center of Spirit Realm one day.
“Island master, everyone’s here. It’s time to leave the soft embrace of your beloveds, don’t you think?” said Feng Rong with a smile on her face.
“Let’s go meet our old friends,” Tang Siqi said.
“By the way, Mo Lingye of the Blood Fiend Sect wanted to know where you’d kidnapped her husband, Xue Li, to,” Feng Rong said.
Qin Lie slapped his forehead once and said, “Ah, damn. I forgot about that.”
Xue Li, Miao Fengtian, and Jiang An had been pulled to Flaming Sun Purgatory while his true body was refining it.
It was why most people had no idea what happened to the trio until now.
Qin Lie, Song Tingyu, and Tang Siqi flew out of the palace and landed on the incredibly wide square of Flaming Sun Island.
Many people of importance were waiting for him on the square already. They all smiled when Qin Lie revealed himself.
“You’ve finally returned, Island Master Qin.”
“How are you doing?”
“Long time no see.”
Qin Lie landed at the center of the crowd and smiled at everyone. He said, “It truly has been a long time, everyone. I’ve returned today to declare that Spirit Realm is ready to unfold new pages and start a new chapter… We are now officially ready to enter the universe.”
The crowd was stunned by his declaration.
