Chapter 926: The Horrid Nature of Races
When Ge Rongguang and the others returned to the Ruined Lands, they immediately went to Flaming Sun Island and reported everything that had happened to Song Tingyu.
The sparkling spatial rings were placed on top of a stone table.
“The Ancient Beast Race of Boluo Realm gave us seven times the amount of rare spirit materials they delivered to us last time. Obviously, they are requesting seven times the spirit materials we sent them.”
“Seven times!” Song Tingyu’s eyes glittered like the stars. “We’re rich! We’ve really struck gold this time!”
Ge Rongguang was excited beyond words too.
As of late, many Nirvana Realm martial practitioners had joined Flaming Sun Island. These people would be needing a huge sum of spirit materials to construct their Soul Altars in the near future.
Flaming Sun Island didn’t have enough foundation, so the only way they could solve this enormous expenditure was to accumulate as much wealth as possible in a short time.
Ge Rongguang had been troubled by this problem at first as well, but after visiting Boluo Realm and witnessing Qin Lie’s abilities with his own eyes, this worry completely disappeared from his mind.
“The island master is truly an extraordinary person. He shares a deep relationship with those rank nine ancient beasts of the Ancient Beast Race,” Ge Rongguang said with a relaxed expression on his face. “In the past, I was very worried that the three great ghoul races, who have committed countless atrocities in the Land of Chaos and even rendered the great Silver rank forces powerless, would invade the Setting Sun Islands one day. But now? Hehe, after the visit to Boluo Realm with the island master, I finally realized just how amazing he is. If I’m not mistaken, the island master can end this war against the three great ghoul races any time he wishes.”
Song Tingyu said with a half smile on her face, “If I remember correctly, you didn’t think too highly of his abilities in the past.”
Ge Rongguang bowed deeply before saying seriously, “I was shortsighted, and I failed to notice the island master’s true abilities but now, I am completely convinced.”
Song Tingyu smiled.
“Miss Song!” It was at this moment Lu Yi rushed in with a severe look on his face. “Our people were attacked by the evil races on the Heavenly Slaughter Continent!”
“What happened?” Song Tingyu’s expression changed.
“The Blue Ghoul Race and Earth Ghoul Race have joined hands and retreated from Myriad Poison Forest. They are now heading straight towards the Setting Sun Islands.” Lu Yi added, “Blood Fiend Sect’s ship has also been attacked!”
“It was only a matter of time.” Song Tingyu inhaled deeply before ordering, “Tell Gray Island and Blood Island to prepare for war!”
At Terminator Sect.
“I just received news that the Blue Ghoul Race and Earth Ghoul Race have joined hands and departed for the Setting Sun Islands.” Shen Yue stared at the crowd seriously.
Inside the discussion hall, there were Xu Ran, Tong Zhenzhen, Lei Yan, and Shen Kui.
“I guess the evil races ultimately think that the Setting Sun Islands are easier to deal with than Black Voodoo Cult.” Shen Kui frowned.
“Flaming Sun Island and Terminator Sect are good friends with each other. For the past three years they’ve supplied us with many Blazing Profound Bombs, not to mention that Qin Lie is the island master of Flaming Sun Island. We have a responsibility towards that kid,” Xu Ran said.
“It’s unfortunate that Big Brother Nan is in a terminal seclusion right now.” Lei Yan’s eyes looked heavy with emotions.
Maybe it was because he felt great pressure weighing on his back, but Nan Zhengtian had announced a terminal seclusion after his negotiations with the eight great Silver rank forces had broken down three years ago.
He refused to come out of his seclusion until he steps into Void Realm.
During this period, no one and nothing was allowed to disturb him.
He couldn’t afford to be disturbed in the slightest during this period.
Three years had passed, but Nan Zhengtian was still in seclusion, and showed no signs of coming out.
That was why Xu Ran and the others had no choice but to watch the three great ghoul races grow stronger. Even when they learned that Bhutto had rebuilt his four-level Soul Altar and reentered the Void Realm, they could do nothing about it.
Nan Zhengtian was the strongest cultivator in Terminator Sect and the entire Land of Chaos. He was the only person who could fight Bhutto head-on.
Without him, Terminator Sect didn’t dare act recklessly. They were afraid that the three great ghoul races might be provoked into a mad charge.
Therefore, they could do nothing but wait even though they knew that the situation was only growing worse and worse for Terminator Sect.
As long as Bhutto didn’t know what was going on with Nan Zhengtian, he wouldn’t dare to attack Terminator Sect. Therefore, Terminator Sect was still safe for now.
If they carelessly and truly enraged Bhutto he might charge to their doorstep and if he then realized that Nan Zhengtian was at a critical moment of attaining the Void Realm, it would bring disaster to Terminator Sect.
Therefore, they could only stay their hands in silence even as the Land of Chaos was ravaged by those ghouls.
They had put all their hopes on Nan Zhengtian.
When Nan Zhengtian entered the Void Realm one day, they would become the final hope of the humans of the Land of Chaos.
They didn’t want to see their hope extinguished before its time.
“If we aid Flaming Sun Island, we will be tearing up our side of the agreement with the evil races. The three ghoul races may tear up their side of the agreement too and wage war against Terminator Sect together.” Shen Kui frowned deeply before saying, “When that happens, the remaining Silver rank forces may not necessarily be willing to put down past enmities and work with us to fight against the three great ghoul races. Worse, if Bhutto learns that the sect master hasn’t ascended to the Void Realm and is currently stuck at a critical juncture, Terminator Sect may very well succumb to their invasion.”
“You don’t think we should help Flaming Sun Island, Elder Shen?” Lei Yan exclaimed in astonishment.
“That’s not what I mean.” Shen Kui thought for a moment before saying, “I don’t think we should lend them a helping hand directly. If Flaming Sun Island cannot handle the evil races’ attack, we can let them escape to Terminator Sect through Evil Infant Island. Once they’ve reached our borders, the three great ghoul races may give up on the chase because they’re wary of us.”
“Little Yue, send a message to Miss Song and tell them to transfer their core elites to Terminator Sect immediately if the situation looks bad.”
On this matter, both Terminator Sect and Flaming Sun Island shared a tacit understanding with each other.
“The three great ghoul races are incomparable to before, and none of the great Silver rank forces can afford to help anyone but themselves. Sigh… if everyone had worked together from the beginning, how could the evil races possibly have acted as wantonly as they have?” Tong Zhenzhen sighed.
“The human race will never be truly united unless we’re at the end of our rope. This is the horrid nature of any race, and no one can change it.” Xu Ran smiled bitterly.
“That’s true.” Tong Zhenzhen understood his words very well.
Qin Lie walked out of the secret realm entrance.
“The evil race has officially begun to invade the Setting Sun Islands.”
The second he walked out of the portal, La Pu, who had been standing by all this time, immediately reported this important news to him.
“It has begun?” Qin Lie’s face darkened.
“The Earth Ghoul Race and Blue Ghoul Race have gathered their experts. They are ready and waiting only for the signal.” La Pu calculated in his head for a moment before saying, “Five days. In at most five days’ time, they will reach the Setting Sun Islands and wage a bloody war against us.”
Qin Lie inhaled deeply before saying, “Bring me to the chief commander!”
“Got it!” La Pu led the way.
Not long after, Qin Lie arrived at the mountain forest shrouded by nether demonic energy. He appeared before Luz, Eddie, and the other clan elders.
“I ran into a bit of trouble…” Qin Lie began to explain.
But Luz waved off his explanation and said, “I know everything already.”
“How are you doing?” Qin Lie asked.
Luz grinned cruelly. “I have only recovered a little over half of my strength, but it is still all too easy to kill a four-level Soul Altar expert.”
“All eighteen Soul Altar experts of the Dark Shadow Race are ready to head out into battle anytime too,” Eddie said smilingly.
Qin Lie’s spirits were raised tremendously by this news.
“Senior Luz, please lead half of your clansmen to Flaming Sun Island, but don’t expose yourself for now. If we really can’t hold on, or if Bhutto himself shows up then I hope that you can take care of it.” He shared his plans with the Dark Shadow Race.
“No problem,” Luz promised him.
“You’ll take care of the preparations.” Qin Lie looked at La Pu before saying, “I need to head to Terminator Sect through Evil Infant Island, and I may… head to Heavenly Sword Mountain too. I will return before the evil races attack Flaming Sun Island, but I need to confirm Terminator Sect and Heavenly Sword Mountain’s stances first.”
“You don’t need to rush,” Luz said calmly. “I guarantee that the three great ghoul races can’t do anything for as long as I’m at Flaming Sun Island.”
“Thank you,” Qin Lie said sincerely.
“You don’t have to thank me; you and your grandfather have done far more for every race of the Nether Realm. If your grandfather hadn’t been around, we would’ve been killed three thousand years ago. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t have survived in Boluo Realm. At the very least, we wouldn’t have made it back to Spirit Realm as easily,” Luz said.
“There is no need for pleasantries between us,” Eddie also said.
“Alright.” Qin Lie nodded. He and Luz with his clansmen rushed to Evil Infant Island. Then, they split up and headed towards Terminator Sect and Flaming Sun Island through the spatial teleportation formation.
The Heaven Ghoul elites who were launching a devastating assault on the Heavenly Fissure Continent suddenly changed directions.
Under Bhutto’s command, the Heaven Ghoul clansmen focused their strength onto the Heavenly Wither Continent instead.
At Heavenly Sword Mountain.
The five Heavenly Swords—Wang Enze, Luo Nan, Yan Baiyi, Ju Xiang and Yan Dong—were gathered in one place while surrounded by many Heavenly Sword Mountain’s greatest elites.
Even Li Mu and Duan Qianjie were standing among them.
“The Heaven Ghoul Race has been attacking the Heavenly Slaughter Continent all this time. Why did they suddenly switch directions towards us?” Wang Enze asked seriously.
Li Mu answered calmly, “The Blue Ghoul Race and Earth Ghoul Race have joined forces and departed for the Setting Sun Islands. They know that we share a business relationship with Flaming Sun Island, so they were worried that we might send our experts over to help them.”
He looked towards Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan.
Thanks to Du Xiangyang and Luo Chen, these two Heavenly Swords managed to buy many Blazing Profound Bombs from Flaming Sun Island at a normal price.
Moreover, Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan had promised Song Tingyu to help Flaming Sun Island personally if they were ever in danger.
Of course, Li Mu and Duan Qianjie shared even closer ties with Qin Lie. If Flaming Sun Island really was attacked by the evil races, they would not stand by and do nothing about it.
Bhutto had obviously grasped the general situation of the Land of Chaos. He knew that Heavenly Sword Mountain might interfere with the battle at Flaming Sun Island if the Earth Ghoul Race and Blue Ghoul Race were to attack them.
That was why he led his powerful clansmen and charged at Heavenly Sword Mountain first.
He wanted to keep Heavenly Sword Mountain so busy that they couldn’t spare even an ounce of strength to attack the Earth Ghoul Race and Blue Ghoul Race.
“It’s all your fault that Heavenly Sword Mountain has clashed against the ghouls ahead of time!” Wang Enze snorted coldly.
Li Mu frowned slightly before answering, “We were going to face these foreign races sooner or later. If we fail, then every human in the Land of Chaos will be slaughtered.”
“But we could’ve let Celestial Artifact Sect and Ten Thousand Beast Mountain hold out for a little while longer!” Ju Xiang shouted.
Wang Enze, Yan Dong, and he had problems with Qin Lie’s identity as a member of the God Race since three years ago. In fact, they were the ones who came up with the idea of forcing Forefather Terminator to turn in Qin Lie.
When Celestial Artifact Sect and Ten Thousand Beast Mountain were attacked by the Heaven Ghoul Race, Li Mu had suggested sending reinforcements to help them. Although Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan had both agreed with the suggestion, these three leaders were of the opposing opinion.
Although Li Mu was the sixth Heavenly Sword, he didn’t have the power to influence the important matters of Heavenly Sword Mountain.
Since all three of them had voted against the suggestion, Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan’s votes were naturally useless. Therefore, Heavenly Sword Mountain simply watched Ten Thousand Beast Mountain and Celestial Artifact Sect being ravaged by the evil races and did nothing about it.
They only wanted to preserve their strength, avoid being targeted and pick the scraps off the ground like vultures.
That was why the three great ghoul races managed to grow stronger through warfare and improve at a tremendous rate.
A hint of sadness colored Li Mu’s eyes. “Let’s endure their attack first before we concern ourselves with right and wrong.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
