Chapter 942: Celebration
Flaming Sun Island.
Many excited faces celebrated and drank, each palace filled with cheers and laughter.
The three ghoul races were defeated and Wen Bin, along with the other members of Illusory Demon Sect that opposed Flaming Sun Island, had been killed as well.
The patriarchs of the three families that once invaded this land had been killed. Jiang An had been defeated, fled into his sect, afraid to show his face...
The inspiring news caused the martial practitioners who had joined Flaming Sun Island before and after to become extremely excited.
Flaming Sun Island which had been founded not long ago had become one of the top factions in the Land of Chaos.
After the three families were destroyed, and Illusory Demon Sect's strength greatly decreased, Flaming Sun Island became a major faction that could be mentioned in the same sentence with Terminator Sect, Celestial Artifact Sect, Heavenly Sword Mountain, and Ten Thousand Beast Mountain.
For these martial practitioners of Flaming Sun Island, nothing made them rejoice more at the decision they made to join Flaming Sun Island!
In the large hall, Qin Lie, Song Tingyu, Tang Siqi, Mo Hai, and the other core members of Flaming Sun Island conversed happily.
On the rectangle table a dozen meters long were fresh fruits, carefully made food, and all kinds of delicious wine.
When Li Mu and Duan Qianjie came in, they found Qin Lie and the others slightly drunk. THe two exchanged a look and then voiced the conditions that Wang Enze and the others had given.
"What?" Song Tingyu’s eyes lit up like stars. "Heavenly Sword Mountain is going to give Scarlet Tide Continent, Heavenly Fate Continent, and Flowing Cloud Continent to us?"
Qin Lie's expression also turned shocked.
“These three continents are Heavenly Sword Mountain's proposition." Li Mu smiled and nodded his head.
"Ten Thousand Beast Mountain and Celestial Artifact Sect will give the five continents closest to the Ruined Lands," Duan Qianjie added.
The martial practitioners of Flaming Sun Island stilled. Then, they laughed strangely.
"They do not want war to start again," Li Mu looked at Qin Lie and said seriously.
"I hadn't planned on waging war in the first place." Qin Lie shrugged with a relaxed expression. "However, this is an unexpected but a very happy surprise."
Once Luz and the other Dark Shadow clansmen moved to the Nether Continent through Tate, his forces would immediately lose majority of their Soul Altar experts.
At that time, he would not have the ability to fight Heavenly Sword Mountain, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, and Celestial Artifact Sect.
He had wanted to plan in the long term.
"You made too much of a fuss at Illusory Demon Sect, the death of Wen Bin and the others, the destruction of the three patriarch's Soul Altars, they are afraid of your savage retaliation." Li Mu smiled slightly.
Learning that Qin Lie did not intent to attack the three factions, he sighed inwardly in relief. He felt that his understanding of Qin Lie was not wrong.“
"Where is everyone?"
Xu Ran and his wife, Tong Zhenzhen, came in with Shen Kui, Lei Yan, and Shen Yue.
The group of Terminator Sect martial practitioners walked into the hall.
"These are our friends from Terminator Sect." Qin Lie stood and introduced Mo Hai, Yao Tai, Feng Rong and the others.
"Welcome." Mo Hai and the others stood in greeting.
"Since everyone is here, how about we clear some things up?" Xu Ran smiled and said easily, "In the current situation, it appears that the three ghoul races will not be able to make any waves, their extinction is just a matter of time."
"Through the rampage of the three ghoul races, the human factions have all suffered great losses, Illusory Demon Sect... is completely ruined, it may not be able to recover even after three hundred years." Xu Ran looked at the group.
"You killed the patriarchs of the three families. Many of their clansmen were killed before that by the Earth Ghoul Race. Without any surprises, from now on, the three families will not be able to rise again in the Land of Chaos."
"Heavenly Sword Mountain, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain and Celestial Artifact Sect have suffered varying degrees of damage, and lost many Soul Altar experts."
Xu Ran paused.
Everyone showed thoughtful expressions.
"The Land of Chaos needs a period of peace," Xu Ran said sincerely.
At this moment, Li Mu, and the people of Terminator Sect subconsciously looked towards Qin Lie.
Without realizing it, Qin Lie had become the most important person who could change the state of the Land of Chaos. His decisions could ignite the flames of war once again in this part of the world, or make it settle in peace.
Both Terminator Sect and Li Mu hoped that the humans could rest for a while.
They wanted Qin Lie to stop.
"Flaming Sun Island will not wage war," Qin Lie promised.
The people from Terminator Sect sighed in relief.
Behind Qin Lie were Luz, who had a five-level Soul Altar, and more than a dozen Dark Shadow Race Soul Altar experts. This faction was more than enough to annihilate any Silver rank faction in the Land of Chaos.
Even Terminator Sect would not be able to match them.
Therefore, Qin Lie's attitude was crucial for all of the Land of Chaos.
"Blood Fiend Sect... what is the situation there?" Xu Ran asked.
"The destruction of Blood Fiend Sect back then was led by Black Voodoo Cult and had the three families as collaborators from within, however... the other factions all participated." Shen Kui's brow furrowed and his expression turned serious. "The present Blood Fiend Sect is separated into Jiang Zhuzhe and Xue Li's branches. These two brothers have resolved their differences, and Blood Fiend Sect has become one of the strongest factions in the Land of Chaos. Especially Jiang Zhuzhe. He was able to seriously injure Bhutto, his power is unfathomable. No one knows how many tricks he has up his sleeve."
"I'm more worried about Xue Li." Li Mu sighed.
Xu Ran nodded softly and said, "Xue Li... has clearly been influenced too deeply by the Soul Altar of the Blood Progenitor. If he loses himself, and goes mad, he will be more troublesome than Jiang Zhuzhe."
"If he achieves a breakthrough, and comprehends the mysteries of another level of that Soul Altar, he will become the most terrifying person in the Land of Chaos," Li Mu said.
"If Blood Fiend Sect is not willing to rest, the chaos may still continue," Shen Kui said worriedly.
"Other than you, this pair of brothers doesn't seem to listen to anyone." Li Mu looked deeply at Qin Lie.
Qin Lie thought for a while and said, "I will urge them."
Li Mu smiled, nodded and said, gratified, "The most correct thing I did in this lifetime was to have you become an apprentice of my little shop back then in Icestone City."
Qin Lie bowed deeply. "Without Uncle Li, I would have died at Icestone City a long time ago, I wouldn't have made it out of the Scarlet Tide Continent."
"It's very lively here." At this time, Xue Li's voice came from outside.
"Island Master Qin, I hope you won't blame me for coming without an invitation?" Jiang Zhuzhe raised his voice.
When the brothers’ voices sounded, the expressions of many people in the hall changed minutely.
Qin Lie smiled and said, "Great wine and food specially prepared to celebrate our victory. At your leisure."
Xue Li and Jiang Zhuzhe walked in together.
Under the eyes of the crowd, the two brothers came to the long table. They each grabbed a jug of wine and gulped down several mouthfuls.
Their bodies carried a strong tang of blood, and their clothing was marked with blood.
While Jiang Zhuzhe's clothing was bloodied, his aura was elegant and relaxed like a scholar. He gave off an eerie and extraordinary charisma.
Xue Li's eyes had recovered their normal color, bottomless and hard to guess.
After they came, everyone else other than Li Mu, Duan Qianjie, and a few others, felt pressured.
This pair of brothers appeared to have resolved their past differences and come back together again.
When they were not enemies and were allied with each other, they were the most terrifying existences in the Land of Chaos.
"What was the result?' Qin Lie asked with a smile.
He was the only person in the room who had a smile on his face. Brother Xue Li and Jiang Zhuzhe were not threats in his eyes.
He was also the person who could affect this pair of brothers the most in the Land of Chaos.
"Jiang An has retreated back to the depths of Myriad Poison Forest, and is within the great sect-protecting formation of Black Voodoo Cult. The two of us together cannot break through that ancient formation." Jiang Zhuzhe shook his head and said, "That ancient formation is more complete than in the past. It seems the first voodoo creature had given Jiang An true inheritance of Black Voodoo Cult, along with a few secrets."
"Then you came out empty-handed?" Qin Lie said.
"We killed many people." Xue Li snickered. "Not all the disciples of Black Voodoo Cult were called back into that formation in time. We stayed a while around the Myriad Poison Forest and killed one Soul Altar expert, six Nirvana Realm martial practitioners, and several dozen disciples in the Fragmentation Realm."
He subconsciously licked the corner of his mouth.
Qin Lie looked at this small motion. His expression didn't change but he was shocked.
"I talked with Senior Mo and we agreed to abide by our earlier previous agreement. You will divide the Heavenly Calamity Continent between yourselves. The Setting Sun Islands and the surrounding factions will belong to Flaming Sun Island," Qin Lie suddenly said.
"Whatever you say, I owe you too much, no matter what you demand, it will not be outrageous in my eyes." Xue Li immediately agreed. Then, he said, "I feel you can directly enter the Heavenly Slaughter Continent. If you let that five-level Soul Altar come out, Black Voodoo Cult will be exterminated. In the present Illusory Demon Sect, only Yu Lingwei possesses a Soul Altar. She cannot intimidate that continent with just Illusory Demon Sect alone. However, you gave it up, so I will not say anything."
"I do not want to wage war temporarily, instead I will expand my area of influence towards other places." Qin Lie looked at the pair of brothers and said, "I'm willing to stop all actions against Heavenly Sword Mountain, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, and Celestial Artifact Set, what about you?"
"If Flaming Sun Island doesn't move, we are not a match for the three factions." Jiang Zhuzhe smiled as though he saw through everyone's thoughts. He said, "The people we hate are Black Voodoo Cult and the three families. Now that we have obtained the Heavenly Calamity Continent, we will not continue this madness."
"If you do not move, we will not move." Xue Li looked at Qin Lie. "The three members of my family, my branch of Blood Fiend Sect, we all owe you."
When the two expressed their opinions, everyone in the hall including Xu Ran and Li Mu sighed inwardly in relief.
They had been worried that Qin Lie would not be able to persuade this pair of brothers. They had feared that the brothers would continue to give chase, and target Heavenly Sword Mountain, Celestial Artifact Sect, and Ten Thousand Beast Mountain.
The two of them promising publicly that they would not continue their madness caused the stone weighing on their backs to be lifted.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
