“At any rate, our plan to extract the Geocentric Motherlode and use it as protection against the Light of Annihilation probably won’t work now.”
An Hao said calmly, “Now that the Geocentric Motherlode has a master, it has become nearly impossible to extract or refine it.”
“Let’s leave. There’s no point hanging around here any longer.”
Han Che also said, “She needs some time to fuse with the Geocentric Motherlode. Once she becomes the master of the Geocentric Motherlode fully, Lieyan Yuan’s spatial shut down over Spirit Realm should fail automatically.”
“We shouldn’t think to use the Geocentric Motherlode against the shadow beings anymore,” Lieyan Zhao said calmly.
Qin Lie shot them a long look before nodding. “Alright.”
The trio hadn’t explained about the mysterious connection between the Chaos Soul Realm and the Geocentric Motherlode at all.
However, Qin Lie knew that they must know about this at a deeper level.
Maybe they refrained from revealing their knowledge because the Flame Emperor, the Ice Emperor, Hua Tianqiong and Ji Dan were here.
After all, this was incredibly valuable knowledge.
It was understandable that they wouldn’t want to reveal it to people they weren’t really close with.
“Those on the ground are waiting for us to bring them the Geocentric Motherlode,” the Ice Emperor said with a bitter expression. “We will need to justify ourselves properly for returning empty-handed, or else…”
“Everything’s fine,” Qin Lie said calmly.
“Let’s go.” Qin Shan looked stern as well.
At Nether City, Nine Hells Purgatory.
After Ling Yushi’s soul had left her body, she never came out of the secret underground room she was placed in.
She was guarded by Ming Xiao, one of the five Demon Gods.
Castor’s avatar had left Nine Hells Purgatory since a long time ago. The Spirit Race clansmen had also returned to their homeworld.
For now, Nine Hells Purgatory was in a state of peace.
Ming Xiao was closing his eyes and studying the secrets of his bloodline when he opened his eyes suddenly.
The Nine Hells Monarch, Auston, had appeared inside the room before anyone realized it as well.
Staring closely at Ling Yushi and sensing the energy coming off her, Auston said, “Strange…”
“What’s wrong?” Ming Xiao asked.
“She seems to have awakened a rich energy. In fact, it’s growing stronger and stronger,” Auston explained.
Ming Xiao’s study of the soul was far inferior to Auston’s, but he managed to notice the anomaly thanks to Auston’s reminder.
“This is… the world spirit energy of Spirit Realm,” Ming Xiao exclaimed in astonishment.
“The world spirit energy of Spirit Realm?” Surprised, Auston said, “This energy is running through her entire body. It’s… even starting to temper her body. But I thought her soul is still trapped inside the Chaos Soul Realm. What’s going on?”
Ming Xiao shook his head in equal puzzlement.
“The energy is growing richer and richer. It… has the power to increase her bloodline to rank ten and evolve her into a Great Lord of the Abyss!” Auston’s eyes were filled with shock when he realized what was happening to Ling Yushi. “I don’t know why, but I’m sensing aura of Abyss Creator from her. She is in Nine Hells Purgatory and hasn’t taken control of any Abyss level though. Strange, truly strange…”
“Swhoosh swhoosh swhoosh!”
Suddenly, dazzling sparks flew out of Ling Yushi’s body.
The light eventually joined together to form a picture.
The picture displayed a place filled with crystal veins. If Qin Lie and Qin Shan were here, they would’ve recognized it as the geocenter of Spirit Realm immediately.
In fact, Qin Lie had sensed Ling Yushi’s unique aura from the same crystal veins just a short while ago.
“What’s this place?” Auston asked in confusion.
“These are the crystal veins beneath Spirit Realm!” Ming Xiao yelled.
“Spirit Realm? Crystal veins? The underground area where the Geocentric Motherlode is located?” Auston trembled and looked at Ling Yushi in excitement.
He seemed to figure out what was going on already.
At Heaven Wood Realm.
“The Geocentric Motherlode can be used to defend against the Light of Annihilation. Please inform this to all outer realm races who are invaded by the shadow beings.”
Qin Lie’s Blood Soul Beast avatar relayed the knowledge his main body found to the Winged Race clansman, Kermit.
“The Geocentric Motherlode!”
Shocked, Kermit subconsciously looked at the ground beneath his feet before shaking his head, saying, “Heaven Wood Realm will die without the Geocentric Motherlode.”
“You don’t have to use your own. Any realm’s Geocentric Motherlode can be used to defend against the Light of Annihilation,” Qin Lie said. “Also, you only need to extract a tiny bit of the Geocentric Motherlode and make spirit armors out of it. They’ll protect you from the Light of Annihilation’s corrosive nature.”
“I’ll tell this to all races who are being hounded by the shadow beings!” Kermit said with a nod.
“I hope you’ll find a way to beat back the shadow beings,” Qin Lie said. “I need to head to the Frost Desolation Abyss right now. Please arrange a teleportation for me.”
“Just leave it to me,” Stanca said.
The realm entrance between Boluo Realm and the Frost Desolation Abyss had become unstable ever since Lieyan Yuan had sealed off the space of Spirit Realm.
As a result, not even Qin Lie’s Dark Soul Beast avatar dared to use Boluo Realm’s realm entrance to travel to the Frost Desolation Abyss.
After seeing Ling Yushi’s soul inside the Geocentric Motherlode, Qin Lie wanted to contact Auston and talk about this.
He wanted to know what was going on with Ling Yushi.
It would be troublesome to travel to Nine Hells Purgatory directly. But if he headed to the Frost Desolation Abyss, he could just contact Auston through Dawson.
Now that the abyss passageway of the Eight Purgatories was unblocked, Auston could project his soul directly to the Frost Desolation Abyss like any Devil Monarch.
His main body was currently studying the Abyssal laws of Flaming Sun Purgatory and at a critical moment, and the Dark Soul Beast avatar couldn’t leave Spirit Realm. Therefore, the Blood Soul Beast avatar was his only way to contact Auston.
Luckily for him, the space of the Winged Race’s star system wasn’t blocked. He could travel to the Frost Desolation Abyss through their realm entrance.
An hour later.
His Blood Soul Beast avatar went through the Winged Race’s secret channel and appeared in the Frost Desolation Abyss’ abyss passageway.
When his rank ten Blood Soul Beast avatar appeared in the Frost Desolation Abyss, Dawson was immediately alerted of his presence.
Dawson immediately spared a soul to speak with Qin Lie.
“Please tell Auston that I’d like to meet him.” Qin Lie cut straight to the point.
“Alright.” Dawson agreed immediately to his request.
Some time later, Auston’s giant shadow appeared in the clouds of the Frost Desolation Abyss.
“Qin Lie! I was just looking for you. Is Little Shi absorbing Spirit Realm’s Geocentric Motherlode right now?” Auston’s soul voice thundered through the air.
“Yes, she is. How’s she doing right now?” Qin Lie asked hurriedly.
“She’s doing fine. Her body’s in Nine Hells Purgatory, and her soul hasn’t returned yet. However, her body is currently being tempered by the world spirit energy of Spirit Realm. She’s growing stronger and more powerful with each passing second!” Auston said.
“That is a relief,” Qin Lie said.
“One more thing. I think she found your father while absorbing the Geocentric Motherlode,” Auston added.
“What did you say?” The news immediately excited Qin Lie.
“There’s an image next to her body, and your father is inside it!”
