Chapter 816: A Single "Blaze" Character!
Dug out blood pools could be seen everywhere on the island Jiang Zhuzhe had renamed to Blood Fiend Island. The bloodwater within was dense and gave off a thick tang.
Many Blood Drinkers were soaking in the pools, completely naked with only a head above the surface. Their pores absorbed the fiendish blood energy inside the blood pools, cleansing their bodies and helping them gather blood spirit energy.
Behind those blood pools was a graveyard filled with great yin energy. Blood Drinkers guarded the entrance.
Thick corpse clouds floated above the graveyard and gave people an extremely dark and eerie feeling.
The crystalline war chariot Qin Lie rode had been enveloped by a bloody red wind and pulled into a dense forest between the blood pools and the graveyard.
Many of Jiang Zhuzhe's subordinates looked up at him with red eyes from within the towers made out of white bones.
There were Fragmentation Realm experts, and seven or so that were in the Nirvana Realm. The bloody energy they released spread like a bloody mist.
Jiang Zhuzhe sat among those Nirvana Realm experts, a book in his hand. He was like a refined scholar seemingly teaching the wonders of the Blood Codex to these people.
Beside him, an old person with a thick corpse energy aura sat atopa white bone one-level Soul Altar.
The old person's fingertips were unusually long and sharp like blades. His face was as white as paper, and white corpse fur grew out of his body. He was like an ancient corpse that climbed out of a ten thousand year old tomb.
With just a glance, Qin Lie knew this was Miao Fengtian, the previous patriarch of the Miao Family.
"Haha, a honored guest has come." Seeing his crystalline war chariot land, Jiang Zhuzhe put down the book and stood up with a laugh. His expression was enthusiastic and had a friendly smile. "I heard our young friend showed extraordinarily power earlier this month. You wounded Chu Miaodan and Wen Bin, those lowly people. I'm greatly pleased!"
The Nirvana Realm martial practitioners with him looked over curiously with eyes flashing bloody red.
Miao Fengtian also looked over. When he saw Qin Lie looked at him he nodded in what passed as a greeting.
"What did you pull me over for?" Qin Lie's expression was calm. He frowned and said, "You want to settle old debts now?"
During the Trial of Graveyard of Gods, he had ruined Jiang Zhuzhe's plan. He had stolen the great majority of ancient elite remains, and also obtained the remains of the Blood Progenitor as well as the Demon Sealing Tombstone, among other items.
Three years ago, when Jiang Zhuzhe came to the Setting Sun Islands and tried to steal the remains of the Blood Progenitor from Xue Li, he had ruined that plan as well.
He thought that Jiang Zhuzhe would hate him to the bone.
"No, we do not have any old debts to settle." Jiang Zhuzhe smiled and shook his head, his expression carefree and his tone sincere. "Our young friend cultivates the Blood Spirit Art, and can be considered a part of my Blood Fiend Sect. Seeing our young friend's accomplishments makes me very happy."
"Are you serious?” Qin Lie asked wryly.
"Each word comes from the bottom of my heart," responded Jiang Zhuzhe with a grave expression. "The greatest dream of my life is to see Blood Fiend Sect dominate this world, and be above all the other Silver rank forces. For this dream, I will do anything, even if I incite world’s fury. I'm not afraid of making oceans of blood and being enemies with everyone."
"While I disagree with my senior brother and sister on the matter of cultivation, our final goal should be the same."
“Young friend cultivates the Blood Spirit Art, and naturally can be considered a member of Blood Fiend Sect. Seeing you gradually rise, and senior brother gradually assimilating the power of the progenitor, seeing Blood Fiend Sect of the Setting Sun Islands rise, I'm truly happy."
At this moment, Jiang Zhuzhe was full of sincerity; gentle and refined.
In the next moment, his face turned cold, his eyes suddenly shooting out two streaks of bloody light. Evil energies spread around him, filled with bloodthirsty and insane urges. He seemed to completely change into a different person.
"White Bone Demon Monarch knows that you cultivate the Blood Spirit Art, the relationship you have with Blood Progenitor. And yet, he still dared to attack you! He must have been tired of living!
I came to White Bone Demon Monarch and drove him out of White Bone Island on this trip to the Ruined Lands just to give him a lesson."
"Also, some lowly foreign race people have sneaked from Prism Continent to try to assassinate you in the Ruined Lands!"
"I've taken care of these people for you!"
As he spoke, Jiang Zhuzhe snapped his fingers.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
An enormous metal cage flew out of the graveyard in the rear containing seven Heaven Ghoul Race members.
Among them, three had reached the Nirvana Realm, the other four were in the Fragmentation Realm.
All seven ghouls were still alive.
These seven ghouls didn't have the blaze imprint. He wouldn't be able to feel the movement of these seven. If any of the seven suddenly attacked, they could threaten his life.
If the seven attacked together, unless he conveniently had a Soul Altar expert protecting him, he would have a hard time escaping the calamity.
"They hid between Dark Wind Island and Evil Infant Island, waiting for an opportunity. If I did not capture them, you would have been ambushed the second you rashly left Evil Infant Island." Jiang Zhuzhe licked his lips, the bloody energy in his eyes crossing. "Do you have anything you want to ask them?"
Looking at the seven Heaven Ghouls, Qin Lie's expression changed slightly. He realized that he had been careless when he travelled from Evil Infant Island to Dark Wind Island previously.
"No." Qin Lie shook his head.
"Qin Lie! We know you are called Qin Lie! Your body contains the dirty blood of the God Race, you will not escape the pursuit of us three great ghoul races!" Inside the cage, a Nirvana Realm expert of the Heaven Ghoul Race shouted. "We also know that the humans, and many of the other foreign races in the Ruined Lands, had once been harmed by your God Race! When we leak your identity, all of the races will pursue you, your future will be a tragic one!"
This member of the Heaven Ghoul Race shouted in the common language of Spirit Realm. Jiang Zhuzhe, Miao Fengtian, and those Blood Drinkers all heard him clearly.
Qin Lie's expression was dark, his eyes flashing with an unusual light, but he didn't respond.
Strangely, Jiang Zhuzhe, Miao Fengtian, and the Nirvana Realm Blood Drinker seemed to not have heard the words. Their expressions were indifferent.
"Drain them of blood." Jiang Zhuzhe waved his hand.
The seven Blood Drinkers’ red robes shook, and they charged out like vampire bats.
The cage suddenly shattered, and the seven Heaven Ghouls showed great terror. They shouted loudly.
Unfortunately, there seemed to be a power restraining them. They could not release their own power.
The seven Blood Drinkers under Jiang Zhuzhe's command went forward together, grabbing the ghouls from behind, and opening their mouths to bit on their neck arteries. They gulped down blood.
"No! You lowly humans! One day, we will eat all of you!"
The Heaven Ghouls shouted.
They had always treated the humans like animals. Wherever they passed in the Land of Chaos, the humans had endured terrible atrocities. No matter if they were martial practitioners, or mortals, they were killed and eaten.
The ghouls used the blood and flesh of human martial practitioners to recover their energies and power.
Right now, in the eyes of Jiang Zhuzhe's Blood Drinkers, it was them who were food as they were being ruthlessly drained of blood.
Before they died, they seemed to experience the same terror as the humans whose arms were torn off and eaten.
"Go to the side to eat, do not disturb us." Jiang Zhuzhe's expression was displeased.
The seven Blood Drinker dragged away the Heaven Ghouls. Ignoring their screams, the Blood Drinkers dragged them out and took to air.
The bloody light in Jiang Zhuzhe's eyes gradually receded. He showed a gentle smile again and said elegantly, "I invited you to Blood Fiend Island this time to discuss two matters with you. The first is that Celestial Artifact Sect has requested me to tell you they hope you will join Celestial Artifact Sect."
"Celestial Artifact Sect?" Qin Lie shook his head harshly. "I have nothing to discuss with them."
"Do not be in a hurry to refuse. You should hear their conditions before you refuse. In my view, Celestial Artifact Sect is sincere this time, and their conditions are very good." Jiang Zhuzhe smiled freely and said, "First consider the consequences if you refuse. If you do that, Celestial Artifact Sect will tell the world that you have the bloodline of the Heaven Fighting Race after the Silver rank forces kill the three ghoul races."
“You also know that the Heaven Fighting Race is a sensitive subject. Many of the foreign races in the Ruined Lands hate them. Once your identity is leaked, there will be countless forces and hidden entities that want to burn your bones to ash in the Land of Chaos."
Qin Lie snorted and said, "Did Celestial Artifact Sect also tell you that I have the Heaven Fighting Race bloodline?"
"No, no, before Celestial Artifact Sect told me, I’ve already known you were special." Jiang Zhuzhe smiled and shook his head. "Celestial Artifact Sect, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, I was the one who told them all about the Graveyard of Gods. You were able to obtain the Demon Sealing Tombstone, receive many fortuitous encounters in the Graveyard of Gods, and was recognized by the eight god corpses... After thinking about it for a bit, I guessed the reason."
Not waiting for Qin Lie to speak, Jiang Zhuzhe said, "Listen to me, here are Celestial Artifact Sect's conditions."
"Feng Yi of Celestial Artifact Sect personally messaged me that if you are willing to join, Luo Han will marry his granddaughter, Luo Kexin, to you. Also, if you agree, you will immediately become the vice sect master of Celestial Artifact Sect. Feng Yi also promised that the child of you and Luo Kexin, no matter the gender, will become the next sect master of Celestial Artifact Sect!"
"After this, all of Celestial Artifact Sect's resources will be unconditionally open to Flaming Sun Island. Your Flaming Sun Island’s lack of artificers? Celestial Artifact Sect can solve this issue, they will send their trainee artificers to Flaming Sun Island.”
"Of course, Flaming Sun Island will become the most important part of Celestial Artifact Sect."
"How do these terms sound?"
Jiang Zhuzhe asked with a smile.
"If you were me, what would you do?" Qin Lie asked in response.
“What would I do?" Jiang Zhuzhe rubbed his chin and laughed softly. He said slowly, "If I were you, I would temporarily bear it when I am not strong enough. I would join Celestial Artifact Sect, marry Luo Kexin, but not let her get pregnant."
"In this period of time, I would use Celestial Artifact Sect's resources to increase my own power. I would have Flaming Sun Island grow and attract the pledges of experts with powerful spirit artifacts. Once the opportunity is ripe, I would betray Celestial Artifact Sect and completely destroy them. I would kill Feng Yi, kill Luo Han, kill Luo Kexin, and then assimilate Celestial Artifact Sect into Flaming Sun Island."
"Haha, yes, I feel this is a good path. Do you have any interest in going down this path?"
Qin Lie looked deeply at Jiang Zhuzhe and shook his head. "I do not."
"What would you do?" Jiang Zhuzhe asked with interest.
"My name consists of only one character. Blaze. I am not patient, nor tolerant. I am not skilled in schemes and cunning. I do not possess such wisdom." Qin Lie thought for a moment and said, "When Flaming Sun Island forges enough Blazing Profound Bombs, when we have millions of them, I just have to throw a spatial ring at Celestial Artifact Sect, and then... there will be no Celestial Artifact Sect in the Land of Chaos."
When he finished speaking, Jiang Zhuzhe looked at him silently for a long time.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
