Chapter 990: Sky Full of Corpses!
Zhuang Jing who had been eager to team up with Qin Lie against Naji showed a disappointed expression.
Zhuang Jing held a grudge towards Naji for using the Dark Soul Beast skull to almost destroy her soul.
She wanted Naji and Qin Lie to engage in a fight.
"And after that?" Naji asked for Qin Lie's opinion.
Qin Lie smiled coolly, and said, "We will go our separate ways."
Naji sighed in relief and went back onto an enormous Crystal Sun Core.
Qin Lie thought for a while, and said to Zhuang Jing, "Will the Moon Core pieces here be of benefit to your cultivation?"
"Of course. " Zhuang Jing's eyes lit up slightly.
Qin Lie nodded and said, "You can use the moon energy here to cultivate."
Zhuang Jing's expression was full of surprise. She said softly, "Many thanks."
Qin Lie did not speak anymore. He sat on the Demon Sealing Tombstone and came above the Sun Core fragment he had demanded.
"Absorbing sun energy from the Sun Core… was this the ‘flame consumption’ latent ability?" he thought inside.
Back on the Nether Continent, he had merged the Silver Streak Heavenly Snake and the fire spirit's blood into his bloodline.
His bloodline had ranked up as a result.
His bloodline itself didn’t bring him any new latent abilities, but he received the “corrosion” ability of the Silver Streak Heavenly Snake and “flame consumption” of the fire Spirit of Void and Chaos. He received latent abilities characteristic to these two lifeforms.
Corrosion… he had never tried to use this latent ability.
But the working of flame consumption talent he had confirmed through Heavenly Flame Crystals. He could easily absorb the fire energy inside of them or any similar fire attribute spirit material.
The Sun Core fragments were the remnant of the local sun and contained the most potent fire energy. They were like the purest of fire attribute spirit materials.
He could absorb the sun's fire energy from the Sun Core fragments and merge it into his bloodline. This most likely was due to the wondrous “flame consumption” latent ability.
As he pondered over the matter, he secretly observed Naji and Zhuang Jing. He found that Naji nd Zhuang Jing were relatively far from where he was.
"They should not feel this ..."
Taking a deep breath, Qin Lie carefully channeled his bloodline power and caused his blood to boil.
He closed his eyes. He used his soul perception to feel the movement of his bloodline. He saw mysterious runes belonging to the God Race, the Ancient Beast Race, and the Spirits of Void and Chaos coursing through his veins.
The blood in his body was like roaring rivers of flame as it flashed with the ancient divine characters of the three races.
Suddenly, he felt a great hunger coming from his blood...
Then he saw blinding sparks float out of the Sun Core piece underneath them.
Before he could react, sparks flew out of it like moths drawn to a flame and sank into his blood.
As sparks continued to fly out of the blinding Sun Core fragment, its light gradually became gentle, no longer dazzlingly bright.
Standing on top of the Sun Core fragment, he seemed to be made out of fire as he attracted the sky full of sparks.
Inside his bloodline, the mysterious runes that represented the God Race and the Spirits of Void and Chaos grew brighter as sun energy flowed in.
He mentally observed those mysterious runes.
"If I magnify them by thousands of times, these mysterious runes are actually complex ancient diagrams. They seem to contain the rules and laws of the universe. Each ancient race have these mysterious runes as well as their own Chaos Blood Realm. Then are these runes… connected to Chaos Blood Realms?"
"A race's strongest inheritances, their long history and their most powerful experts will be imprinted in the Chaos Blood Realm."
"Inside the Chaos Blood Realm, those bubble-like balls of light are formed from many divine characters."
"If one enters the inheritance balls, those divine characters will be imprinted into memory. Pureblood members will learn the secrets of their race."
"The Chaos Blood Realm and those ancient runes complement each other. Maybe when a race is created, those are already formed."
A string of thoughts flashed through Qin Lie's mind. Watching the three mysterious divine characters flash like lightning in his blood, he was full of thoughts and seemed to learn something.
He did not know that his speed at absorbing the energy in Sun Core fragment was much faster than Naji’s.
When he awoke from his thoughts, he look down and found the originally blinding Sun Core fragment had become the most common brown rock that could be seen everywhere in the chaotic streams of space.
This rock was tens of acres large, and seemed to be slowly dissipating as it floated.
After losing its sun energy, this rock could not withstand the twisted chaotic power inside the chaotic streams of space and was gradually turning to dust.
He sat silently on the Demon Sealing Tombstone, his brow tightly locked, as he continued to think about the mysteries of the ancient race bloodlines.
An unknown amount of time later, the nine crescent moons of Moon Tear flew back from the horizon and went back into the silver moon mark.
You Ye spoke from within the mark, "If you can get more Moon Core fragments like that, Moon Tear may truly become a Divine Grade Two spirit artifact."
"I will pay attention to them," Qin Lie responded.
Soon, Zhuang Jing came back, excited and with a smile at the corner of her lips. She seemed to have benefited from a Crystal Moon Core.
"Master, should we leave now?" she asked.
At this time, Naji was still sitting on a Crystal Sun Core, absorbing the sun energy inside.
Qin Lie looked towards where Naji was. He thought for a moment and then called out, "Friend, we are leaving first."
Naji opened his eyes and looked at Qin Lie with a complicated look. He nodded and said, "See you later."
"Let's go." Qin Lie left.
"Master... is this a Star Compass?" In the unknown chaotic streams of space, Zhuang Jing asked curiously, looking at the Demon Sealing Tombstone.
Qin Lie's expression was indifferent. He said, "You and I should separate."
Zhuang Jing's gaze skittered and she said urgently, "If you and I separate, I will have a difficult time surviving the chaotic streams of space. Please do not drive me away."
"I need to pick up the pace, and you will only slow me down," Qin Lie said coldly.
"I can come with you," Zhuang Jing begged.
"No." Qin Lie shook his head.
Just as Zhuang Jing was about to keep begging, her expression changed slightly. She covered her mouth and exclaimed, "So many corpses."
"There are many rotting corpses in the chaotic streams of space, what is so strange?" Qin Lie said as he looked where Zhuang Jing was looking in. After shooting a glance, his expression became grave.
Human corpses floated in the air, having been torn to pieces.
Some corpses were still bleeding.
These people clearly had died not long ago!
"These are Blue Flame Manor's people!" Zhuang Jing screamed.
Qin Lie looked and also saw signs of Blue Flame Manor from those people's clothing.
Narrowing his eyes, he looked over, and did not see Guan Lian and Wan Bin's corpses.
"They seem to have been torn apart by some beast." Zhuang Jing's eyes were full of fear." Guan Lian and the others may have encountered experts from the Ancient Beast Race."
"It has nothing to do with me." Qin Lie's expression was cold.
"Let me follow you for a while. The next time we encounter humans, I will leave," Zhuang Jing begged.
Qin Lie frowned slightly.
The reason he let Zhuang Jing live was because Zhuang Jing was pragmatic and had told him everything she knew.
Also, he could see that Zhuang Jing was an intelligent and devious person. If he could control her, it would be of great help to him in entering the Central World.
However, he was also in a hurry to use the Demon Sealing Tombstone to learn what secrets were hidden inside this place. He could not always keep Zhuang Jing with him.
"The next time we encounter humans, you will leave." After a moment of thought, he nodded again.
Subsequently, he let the Demon Sealing Tombstone guide him.
A long time later.
An angry dragon roar came from the distance and caused Qin Lie's mind to shake.
"Giant dragons! It's the giant dragons!" Zhuang Jing screamed.
Qin Lie looked at the Demon Sealing Tombstone and found the Demon Sealing Tombstone was flying in the direction of the dragon roar.
Along the way, he started to see more corpses. Those corpses were of Asura Race, Wood Race, Sea Race, and also human race...
As he advanced to the source of the roar, there were even more corpses, this time of the ancient races.
Wild power vibrations came from the area where the giant dragon roar had occurred. Prismatic light and all kinds of spirit artifacts were colliding with each other.
Powerful soul fluctuations came from below. Qin Lie felt with his perception and knew that there were at least hundreds of powerful beings fighting.
"The entrance is blocked by the Giant Dragon Race! Kill those giant dragons!" someone shouted from the crowd.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
