Chapter 1138: Soul Beacon
Acarus was completely covered by that flame ball.
Curtis and the others sat on their Soul Altars, constantly casting secret bloodline arts of the Asura Race to attack that flame ball.
Many dark shadows, extremely cold cyclones, and flashing lightning smashed onto the ball of fire.
Inside the flaming sphere, Acarus's body twisted violently as he furiously roared.
But the ball of flame did not burst.
As the blows kept coming, the surrounding dead volcanoes started to roar again as though they were taking damage for him.
But this Abyss Devil was only at rank eight. He had not fully ascended into the ranks of Lords of the Abyss.
Facing Void Realm experts like Curtis, even if he used his natural bloodline to completely defend, he would only be able to survive for a dozen seconds.
That enormous flame ball finally exploded under the barrage of attacks.
The figure of Acarus, who had been hiding within the sphere of flames, was exposed to Qin Lie and the others.
"Capture him alive," Qin Lie ordered.
Curtis laughed sinisterly. The six-level Soul Altar under him suddenly dropped down towards Acarus.
A great attractive force formed at the bottom of the six-level Soul Altar to securely restrain Acarus.
At the same time, Qin Lie formed the star door again and let Curtis throw Acarus to the other side.
At the other side was the Soul Beast avatar. Acarus would not be able to escape from the Soul Beast avatar.
He wanted to see if his comprehension of the Soul Race's secret arts had reached his estimates through Acarus.
If his Soul Beast avatar could successfully enslave Acarus, he would have reached the level required to enslave the first voodoo insect as well.
To him, Acarus was the best experiment.
Acarus screamed in terror before he was consumed by the star door.
At the other end of the star door, among the surging soul presence, the appearance of the Soul Beast was exposed.
As a high rank devil, he clearly knew the origin of the Soul Race. After realizing there was an expert of the Soul Race on the other side of the star door, he immediately knew what fate awaited him.
"Curtis. Stay here temporarily, I have to take care of some matters." Qin Lie turned and ordered.
The star door made from the Eight-eyed Demon Spirit's bloodline latent ability suddenly changed, and showed Zhuang Jing's figure at the other side.
Qin Lie led the Asura Race soul slaves to pass through.
"Return to the Frost Desolation Abyss," Qin Lie ordered them.
These soul slaves had been at the Frost Desolation Abyss helping Miao Fengtian forge Corpse Demons.
He had move these people from the Frost Desolation Abyss to the Extreme Flame Abyss with the Star Door latent ability.
After resolving the matter of Acarus, he had Curtis guard the Extreme Flame Abyss, and used the soul as a locator to return to Boluo Realm through Zhuang Jing.
Zhuang Jing saw the star door appear and knew he was going to arrive. When his figure appeared, she called out with a smile on her face.
Recently, Zhuang Jing had been acting as Qin Lie's representative and passing Qin Lie's orders on Seven Spirits Island.
After leaving the Serene Moon Race, Zhuang Jing now lived on Seven Spirits Islands and had a tower belonging to her.
Only she and Lin Jie lived in this tower.
Once she received mental orders from Qin Lie, she would immediately contact Ge Rongguang and have Ge Rongguang pass them on.
She was a pair of eyes Qin Lie had arranged on Seven Spirits Islands.
Through her eyes, Qin Lie could know the situation of Boluo Realm and Land of Chaos. Through her, he could communicate with Song Tingyu and Tang Siqi so they would advance based on his plans.
"Where is Lin Jie?" Qin Lie suddenly asked.
Zhuang Jing was slightly puzzled and said, "Master, what do you need to find her for?"
At this time, the Asura Race soul slaves had moved towards the white bone sacrificial altar following Qin Lie's rules. They were going to return through the realm door to Frost Desolation Abyss.
Only she and Qin Lie were left in the room.
As she spoke, she bashfully moved towards Qin Lie, and grabbed Qin Lie's thick arm with a red face. She said, "Master, are you interested in Lin Jie? That girl... has recently admired me. She is very curious about the advancement of my bloodline. If Master wants her, I can arrange it for you."
As she spoke, she brushed her chest light against Qin Lie's arm, her eyes full of emotion.
Ever since her last night with Qin Lie, and advancing to rank seven bloodline from rank six, Zhuang Jing anticipated the next time.
She hoped to advance her bloodline power faster through Qin Lie.
The bloodline she had came from the Serene Moon Race. The stronger her bloodline, the more moon power she could absorb from the nine moons of Boluo Realm.
This would be of great help to the advancement of her cultivation.
She had always been ambitious, and wanted to strengthen herself. In the past, she had worked hard.
Right now, when she found that her and Qin Lie's union was a very effective shortcut, she had other thoughts.
"Is Lin Jie unable to return to Lunar Temple at all?" As he enjoyed Zhuang Jing's fawning, Qin Lie asked, "What does she think?"
"She and I cannot return," Zhuang Jing said softly.
"I need a soul slave. I need her to be on Flaming Sun Island to help pass on messages at any time. I need her as a steady soul location." Qin Lie narrowed his eyes, and lifted Zhuang Jing's round chin with his hand. He said, "If she is willing to be enslaved, I do not need her body. I will give her pure soul power so that she will never have to worry about soul power in her breakthroughs. Also, while she is enslaved, I will be responsible for all the materials she needs for cultivation. Even if she reaches the Imperishable Realm in the future, I will prepare all the spirit materials necessary for creating a Soul Altar."
Boluo Realm and the Land of Chaos were all important lands he controlled. He needed two steady soul beacons in these two places to pass on his soul messages at any time.
The soul slaves of Asura Race were at the Imperishable Realm at the weakest. They would be a waste to use as soul beacons.
Also, they were of the Asura Race. It was not suitable for them to live long among the human race.
Due to this, he needed a human to be a soul beacon and become another pair of eyes for him stationed on Flaming Sun Island.
"You do not want her body?" Zhuang Jing was surprised.
"I need her to be another pair of eyes for me," Qin Lie said.
"I will talk to Lin Jie about this, and explain the conditions to see if she is willing." Zhuang Jing nodded.
"There is something you have to explain clearly. Once the soul agreement is formed, it will be hard for her to get rid of me in this lifetime. You have to make sure she understands this," Qin Lie said solemnly.
"I will." Zhuang Jing nodded docilely.
At this time, her hand had trailed along Qin Lie's chest to his waist.
Qin Lie took a deep breath, lifted Zhuang Jing up and walked towards Zhuang Jing's bedroom.
After a turbulent storm, Qin Lie walked out Zhuang Jing's tower towards the secret realm entrance leading towards the Land of Chaos.
Just as he walked out, he saw Lin Jie coming from afar.
Under the night light, Lin Jie seemed to be dressed in moonlight as the moon power flowed from her.
Evidently, Lin Jie had been using the moonlight of Boluo Realm's night to cultivate secret arts in another place. This was why she had such clear moonlight on her.
"Greetings, Island Master Qin."
Seeing Qin Lie walked out of the room, Lin Jie was shocked and then bowed.
She saw that Qin Lie's clothing was in disarray.
Her mind shifted and she subconsciously glanced into the room. She found that Zhuang Jing had not come to bid farewell.
She immediately knew that Qin Lie and Zhuang Jing must have had an encounter previously.
A flush made its way onto Lin Jie's face.
Qin Lie glanced at her, nodded, and left without a word.
Lin Jie watched him as he disappeared before returning to the tower and coming to Zhuang Jing's bedroom.
Inside the bedroom, the air was filled with scent and traces of the recent events.
Zhuang Jing covered her body with a blanket. All the parts of her body exposed outside were naked.
"Senior sister, your fight was really fierce." Lin Jie twisted her mouth and said sourly. "This time, what did you obtain through him?"
The flush had no faded from Zhuang Jing's face as she said lazily, "Junior sister, do not say that senior sister does not take care of you, now there is a shortcut in front of you, it just depends on how you will choose..."
She narrowed Qin Lie's words and told Lin Jie Qin Lie's intentions for Lin Jie to decide.
"If he wants me to be his soul slave, he has to come say it to me personally, and not through you," Lin Jie said hatefully. "Why did he do it through you?"
"Oh, I understand. The next time he comes, I will have him talk to you," Zhuang Jing said with a small smile.
