Chapter 851: The Nine Great Leaders
Qin Lie’s heart jumped as his complexion swiftly darkened. “Where did the news come from?”
“It was probably spread together by Celestial Artifact Sect and the three great ghoul races.” La Pu shook his head helplessly. “Every reputable force in the Land of Chaos had learned about this in a flash.”
“What’s the reaction outside?” Qin Lie asked.
“The news just spread out, so we’re… not sure what the reaction is yet. But from my experience, things should be pretty bad.” La Pu sighed.
While the two were speaking, a figure landed on Soul Summoning Island. He teleported straight to where they were and yelled, “Is Qin Lie here?”
“Senior Xu Ran?” Qin Lie looked astonished.
The figure instantly shifted over and stopped in front of Qin Lie and La Pu. It was none other than Xu Ran.
Moreover, it was Xu Ran only.
“You need to come with me to Terminator Sect, now.” Xu Ran exclaimed.
“It’s about your identity!”
Suddenly, La Pu moved in front of Qin Lie and unleashed the dark lights of his eyes. Then, he said, “Qin Lie, it’s best if you don’t leave Soul Summoning Island right now. Anything can happen if you leave recklessly during such dangerous times.”
“An eight-eyed expert of the Ghost Eye Race?” Xu Ran looked deeply at La Pu before shaking his head, smiling. “You are not my match just yet.”
“What if fourteen evil dragons were to aid me?” La Pu said coldly.
“It would be a battle, but… you would lose all the same.” Xu Ran suddenly revealed his three level Soul Altar.
The moment the three-level Soul Altar appeared, its vast and oppressive aura immediately enveloped the entire Soul Summoning Island. It was so powerful that it became difficult even to breathe.
La Pu turned pale in shock.
But Xu Ran quickly withdrew his Soul Altar in the next moment. “If I really wished to hurt Qin Lie, I wouldn’t try to take him to Terminator Sect at all, am I right?”
La Pu nodded in disappointment.
“Even Old Monster Nan had come out of his seclusion ahead of time due to Qin Lie’s matter. He will be summoning the leaders of the eight great Silver forces and discuss with them the matter of Qin Lie’s identity through the Shadow Prism Mirror,” Xu Ran said with a solemn expression on his face. “Old Monster Nan believes that Qin Lie should be present for the discussion because it relates to his future. He wishes to know what the eight leaders’ reactions are and how are they going to treat his bloodline and identity.”
“I’ll come with you.” Qin Lie walked past La Pu and stood beside Xu Ran. “Let’s go now.”
He too wished to know how the what the attitude of the martial practitioners of the Land of Chaos was towards the bloodline of the god race.
“Alright! We shall head to Evil Infant Island first and teleport directly to Terminator Sect. We shall go directly to where the Shadow Prism Mirror is!” Xu Ran grabbed him and flew into the sky immediately.
Due to the urgency of the situation, Xu Ran neither concealed his identity nor his powerful aura.
“Don’t worry, something went wrong with Seine’s cultivation, so he will not be interfering with the Ruined Lands’ business for now,” Xu Ran explained.
“No wonder Luo Han and those people dared to act so wantonly.” Qin Lie nodded.
Not long after, Xu Ran and him had returned to Evil Infant Island. Qin Lie acutely sensed that a lot of Flaming Sun Island martial practitioners were looking at him with slightly urgent looks on their faces.
It was obvious that they also had received the news and learned that he possessed the bloodline of the god race.
Even Yi Yuan looked like he had a lot of things to say to him when he looked at him.
“We’ll talk later.” He and Xu Ran entered the teleportation formation right after he threw down this line.
There was a flash of brilliant light.
When he opened his eyes, he noticed that he was at a different large-sized spatial teleportation formation. Xu Ran grabbed him and flew swiftly towards a particular direction.
Fifteen minutes later, both Xu Ran and him had arrived at a giant palace at a mountain peak.
Many Terminator Sect martial practitioners could be seen waiting in front of the palace. Lei Yan, Tong Zhenzhen, Shen Yue and Shen Kui were among them too.
“Is Old Monster Nan ready?” Xu Ran asked after he landed.
“He’s just waiting for you to bring Qin Lie now,” Lei Yan answered.
Xu Ran stopped talking after nodding at Lei Yan’s answer. He finally released Qin Lie’s hand and beckoned him to follow them inside.
Without hesitating, Qin Lie stepped into the palace immediately under the gaze of many important figures of Terminator Sect.
Inside the incredibly vast interior of the palace, there were many Shadow Prism Mirrors about the height of two meters and the width of one meter. The interior of the mirrors were shining with murky light.
A Shadow Prism Mirror shared a similar function with the transmission stones. The latter could transmit voices, and the former could not only transmit voices but images as well.
However, Shadow Prism Mirrors were also incredibly rare. In the entire Land of Chaos, only Silver rank forces were wealthy enough to possess Shadow Prism Mirrors and use them to conduct cross-continental communication.
Normally, the Shadow Prism Mirrors were used only when matters of great importance had happened on the Land of Chaos. For example, the Asura Race’s invasion and the three great ghouls race’s invasion demanded the unity and defense of all forces. That was why the Shadow Prism Mirrors were used.
“Qin Lie, stand here at this corner and keep quiet during the discussion. All you need to do is to watch and listen quietly.” Forefather Terminator was standing in front of a Shadow Prism Mirror. He pointed at another location and motioned for him to head over.
Qin Lie nodded and didn’t offer a comment. He obediently stood at where Forefather Terminator had pointed.
The corner chosen by Forefather Terminator was a blind spot. The people who would appear in the mirrors later wouldn’t be able to see him when the communication began.
“Has everyone found their respective spots?” Forefather Terminator looked at everyone around him.
Qin Lie noticed that Lei Yan, the husband and wife Xu Ran and Tong Zhenzhen, Shen Yue and Shen Kui had stood still at various corners of the room.
No one but Forefather Terminator was standing in front of a Shadow Prism Mirror. No one was standing in front of the other vertically standing Shadow Prism Mirrors too.
“We’re ready,” Lei Yan said.
“Mn. I’m summoning them now.” Forefather Terminator nodded and took a sudden step backwards. His person actually sank into the Shadow Prism Mirror behind him.
Qin Lie was surprised immediately by the sight.
From his point of view, Forefather Terminator Sect seemed to have vanished entirely from this place. He could not sense either his aura, the oppressing atmosphere around him, or his soul activity.
However, he could clearly see that Forefather Terminator was standing upright inside that Shadow Prism Mirror.
It was a most profound experience.
In the next moment, the interior of the Shadow Prism Mirrors next to Forefather Terminator began to sparkle wildly with murky light.
Very soon, the blurry figures inside the mirror became clear.
Inside those mirrors, there were people who seemed to have entered into the other world inside the Shadow Prism Mirrors just like the Forefather Terminator.
When the light inside the Shadow Prism Mirrors had stopped sparkling entirely, when the images had completely stabilized, Qin Lie’s pupils abruptly shrank.
He already knew who the people inside the mirrors were.
The pope of the Black Voodoo Cult Jiang An, the sect master of Celestial Artifact Sect Feng Yi, the mountain master of the Ten Thousand Beast Mountain Qi Yang, the leader of the five Heavenly Swords of Heavenly Sword Mountain Wang Enze, Wen Bin of Illusory Demon Sect, and the three patriarchs of the three great family Xiahou Jie, Su Pan and Lin Yuehan were present in the mirrors. Including Forefather Terminator, every leader of the Land of Chaos had appeared inside the Shadow Prism Mirrors in unison.
“Old Monster Nan, the three ghoul races haven’t made a move yet, and that Great Sage Bhutto hasn’t exited his seclusion. Why have you summoned us so urgently?” Feng Yi was the first person to start the conversation.
“We, the three great families are fighting against the Earth Ghoul Race on the Heavenly Calamity Continent, and we don’t have time to care about the other ghouls on Prism Continent. Therefore, we will not be participating in the war of Prism Continent!” Xiahou Jie yelled.
“The Blue Ghoul Race is still attacking the Heavenly Slaughter Continent en masse, and there’s no telling when they will stream into our territory from Illusory Demon Sect’s side.” The pope of the Black Voodoo Cult Jiang An had depthless eyes and an absolutely cold and detached voice. “Therefore, Black Voodoo Cult will not interfere with any changes occuring on Prism Continent or send any experts to participate in those battles.”
“Why are you the representative of Illusory Demon Sect, Wen Bin?” Nan Zhengtian ignored them both. Instead, he abruptly focused his gaze on Wen Bin and taunted, “Who do you think you are? Do you think that someone like you is qualified to answer my summons?”
The moment he said this, the leaders of every Silver rank force began to laugh in ridicule. Their eyes on Wen Bin were full of disdain.
Wen Bin, the martial practitioner who once looked oh-so-glorious at Setting Sun Islands looked incredibly uncomfortable at this moment.
Although he was scolded and ridiculed by Nan Zhengtian on the spot and laughed by Jiang An, Feng Yi, and Qi Yang right after, he didn’t dare to say anything against them. Hiding his anger, he said with a red face, “Seven days ago, I have replaced Yu Lingwei to become the new sect master of Illusory Demon Sect with the support of Senior Uncle Ji.”
“Ji Qingpeng was nearly killed by Jiang Zhuzhe at the Ruined Lands, and both you and Chu Miaodan suffered serious soul injuries that you haven’t recovered from yet.” Forefather Terminator had an odd look on his face. “Even now, Illusory Demon Sect’s Yu Lingwei is engaged in a bloody battle against the Blue Ghoul Race, and yet you have made yourself the new sect master of Illusory Demon Sect using Ji Qingpeng’s support… Hehehe, you are such a capable man, Wen Bin. You are such a capable man!”
Qi Yang, Feng Yi, Wang Enze and the others all laughed out loud without a care for courtesy at all.
It was obvious that these true leaders of the Land of Chaos didn’t think of Wen Bin as anyone important at all. They didn’t give him the respect he deserved for someone of his status.
“So you’re Sect Master Wen now, huh?” Jiang An was spoke up in an odd tone, “When your war against the Blue Ghoul Race is done, I will personally head to the Illusory Demon Sect and pay you a visit myself. You absolutely must be there to welcome me when I arrive!”
Wen Bin abruptly turned pale when he heard this. He was growing more and more clueless as to what he could say to salvage the situation.
Forefather Terminator let out a snort but didn’t continue to attack Wen Bin any further. Instead, he changed the subject and said, “The reason I call all of you over isn’t to discuss about attacking the three great ghoul races. I want to talk about Qin Lie.”
“Qin Lie?” Jiang An curled his lips. “What are you doing, Old Monster Nan? Did you seriously just call everyone over for a mere Fulfillment Realm kid? Are you sure you’re not just trying to show off your bluster as the number one cultivator of the Land of Chaos?”
“It is a little too much to summon all of us for one Qin Lie,” Feng Yi of Celestial Artifact Sect agreed.
“Did he grow another two heads and four arms or something?” Xiahou Jie also taunted.
The rest of the leaders also expressed their respective dissatisfaction.
Wang Enze of Heavenly Sword Mountain and Qi Yang of Ten Thousand Beast Mountain were the only ones who stayed quiet and said nothing in retort.
As Qin Lie observed the conversation between the nine great authorities of the Land of Chaos from a corner, he finally realized that he was still an insignificant character in all these people’s eyes.
This people were dissatisfied at the fact that Nan Zhengtian had summoned them just to talk about him. It was obvious that they didn’t regard him as anyone important at all.
“These nine Shadow Prism Mirrors represent the most powerful figures of the Land of Chaos. One day, I will appear in one of these Shadow Prism Mirrors. As a summoner, no less!!” Qin Lie inwardly made an oath to himself.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
