Chapter 1202: Consoling
The terrifying existence that had appeared in the sky of Frost Desolation Abyss quietly awaited Ling Yushi's decision.
In fact, the entire Frost Desolation Abyss seemed to have quieted down.
The four Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss were still floating in the air just in case this Great Lord of the Abyss Purgatory decided to take matters into his own hands.
But they were fine with his desire to send Ling Yushi into the secret realm.
That was why they kept their silence.
The Soul Beast's territory was extraordinarily silent right now. The humans from the Land of Chaos, the races of Boluo Realm, the Asura Race, the Ji Family, and the Sky Mender Palace were all acting as meek as lambs.
The five terrible demonic presences in the sky were powerful enough to give even a Void Realm expert a hard time.
This pressure was nothing like a human Genesis Realm expert's from Spirit Realm.
Everyone was afraid and shocked.
"My queen, please… decide quickly."
Gray, the rank nine Ghost Eye clansman's eyes were looking fearful. He urged her to make a decision in a trembling voice.
Ling Yushi was just as shocked as he was. A short moment of hesitation later, she chose Ling Feng, Ling Xuanxuan, Gao Yu, and a couple of excellent warriors from the three Nether Realm races.
"I'll send you to the Darkness Abyss right now."
The terrible existence from the Abyss Purgatory suddenly conjured a black hurricane with his soul shadow.
The group was caught by the hurricane before they were done preparing.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
The hurricane could move ten million miles in an instant. It quickly entered the abyss channel.
The four Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss that had appeared above the ice pillars slowly vanished after the hurricane had gone away.
The races on the ground finally felt like they could breathe again. They slowly stood up.
"What a terrifying Abyss Devil!"
"Is this the strength of a rank ten Great Lord of the Abyss?"
" That is just their souls too."
"Just how strong are they!?"
The Silver rank forces of the Land of Chaos, the races of Boluo Realm, the Asura Race, the Sky Mender Palace, and the Ji Family all looked fearful and worried after the demonic figures above their heads had gone away.
Everyone was seized by a sudden and terrible fear.
Miao Fengtian and Curtis hurriedly informed Qin Lie about what just happened through their souls.
Qin Lie was heading to the secret realm at Darkness Abyss under An Yun's lead, so he couldn't show up in Frost Desolation Abyss personally. Instead, he sent his Soul Beast avatar to Frost Desolation Abyss using Boluo Realm's white bone sacrificial altar.
The Soul Beast avatar took on Qin Lie's appearance.
At the realm entrance.
Everyone including the Cullen Family had gathered here after Miao Fengtian had notified them of Qin Lie's arrival.
Right now, the experts of dozens of forces and races were looking dark and lost.
In fact, a lot of people felt like pulling out of this expedition.
The soul manifested by the four rank ten Great Lords of the Abyss was so destructively powerful that they couldn't muster any will to resist.
In that moment, even Void Realm experts like Teng Yuan, Gray, Ji Yao, Hua Anyang, Hunchback Ba, and so on felt like they were infinitesimally small.
It was something they had never felt when they faced a Genesis Realm expert from Spirit Realm.
They were starting to doubt their own decision and wondered if their operation in the Frost Desolation Abyss was too reckless.
It was at this moment the human-like Soul Beast arrived from the realm entrance.
The Soul Beast avatar had even used Dark Soul, its bloodline ability, to adjust its soul presence to become identical to Qin Lie's.
The Dark Soul ability was a very mysterious ability. It was one of the reasons the Soul Race had taken a liking to the Soul Beast Race.
After the Soul Beast avatar had physically transformed into Qin Lie and adjusted its soul's strength to match that of its true body, it became near impossible to distinguish between the two of them.
The Soul Beast avatar's soul had originated from its true body. Therefore, the avatar and the true body had nearly identical soul presence.
Only those that were even stronger than the Soul Beast and knew the Soul Race and the Soul Beast's secret well would be able to identify it.
At the Frost Desolation Abyss, the strongest existences present were rank nine bloodline experts and six-level Soul Altar experts.
No one was stronger than his Soul Beast avatar.
Qin Lie had no reason to believe that anyone could see through the Soul Beast avatar's disguise.
It was he had come as the Soul Beast without worry.
The leaders of all races and forces surrounded him immediately like he was a life saving straw in a sea of water.
"Qin Lie, Miss Ling was…" Tang Beidou yelled urgently.
"The queen was taken away!" The nine-horned warrior Gordon couldn't help himself.
"I know, I know." Qin Lie raised his hands and beckoned them to calm down. "Please quiet down and listen to what I say."
The crowd abruptly grew silent.
Qin Lie examined the crowd and discovered in satisfaction that no one except his soul servants, who had a direct link to his soul had noticed that he was the Soul Beast avatar.
"This is an opportunity for Yushi. This trip to the Darkness Abyss is the best chance to prove her bloodline's worth." Qin Lie looked the denizens of Nether Realm first and smiled." That terrible existence from the bottom eight Abyss levels is probably the very source of the Dark Nether Race's bloodline. The reason he appeared here even at the risk of offending the four Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss was probably he was attracted by the presence of her awakened bloodline. It would appear that he found her to have potential, which is why he had decided to send her to a newly-discovered ancient secret realm."
A short pause later, he said seriously, "You don't need to worry too much. This trip is probably good for Yushi because she may be able to awaken her scariest, core bloodline ability and obtain acknowledgement of that Great Lord of the Abyss."
"What will happen after that existence acknowledges the queen?" Luz asked.
"He will do his best to quicken Yushi's growth. In the future… Yushi may become a true ruler of the Abyss Purgatory, and you as her followers will have the fortune to cultivate and live at the bottom eight levels of the Abyss," Qin Lie said.
"The bottom eight levels… the Abyss Purgatory…"
Gray, Gordon and Luz all looked lost.
"It's a miraculous place where you can directly feel the laws of the Abyss. It is a better place for high rank bloodline experts like you all to evolve your bloodline compared the top one hundred Abyss levels."
The Nether Realm denizens slowly calmed down after hearing his explanation. They quieted and pondered about the Abyss Purgatory.
Seeing that he had appeased the Nether Realm races, Qin Lie turned to look at Teng Yuan, Ji Yao, Hua Anyang, Gan Feipeng and the leaders of the Land of Chaos. He said, "The four Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss will never manifest themselves as long as you obey the rules of the Abyss."
"What are these rules?" Teng Yuan asked.
Qin Lie thought for a moment before starting, "I'll explain the most important ones only."
Everyone paid close attention to him.
"As long as you haven't become a rank ten bloodline expert or a Genesis Realm expert, everything you do here is acceptable and within the rules of the Abyss. If you're capable, you can kill as many Abyss Devils as you wish. The four Great Lords of the Abyss will never interfere as they believe you are like grindstones that strengthen their Abyss Devils."
Qin Lie chose his words carefully before continuing, "In reality, the Lords of the Abyss will fight amongst themselves even if we haven't entered this place. The Abyss obeys the laws of the jungle, and only the winners have the right to keep evolving and hope to reach rank ten one day."
"Your arrival may even please the four rulers of Frost Desolation Abyss, so of course they're not going to interfere with your battles against the Lords."
"Of course, this is all under the assumption that none of you are at rank ten bloodline or Genesis Realm."
"If you are, then the Abyss will respond according to a different set of rules. The four Great Lords of Frost Desolation Abyss will be forced to interfere directly."
Hua Anyang asked, "A different set of rules?"
"It means that the Abyss will respond with all out warfare!" Qin Lie said seriously, "For example, the five great families of the God Race are currently engaging five abyss levels in war! The amount of power involved in a war like this is unimaginable, and right now… we don't have the power to start a war just yet."
"Therefore, you must remember never to send a Genesis Realm expert or rank ten bloodline expert into this place. Also, if you've ascended to rank ten or Genesis Realm here, you must stop attacking the Abyss Devils of this place and leave as soon as possible. If you do so, then the Great Lords of the Abyss will not take it as a challenge."
"Of course, those four fellows will chase you away themselves once you've reached that level."
"If you refuse, they will respond with force."
"That's about it, I think."
The crowd that was about to collapse upon themselves mentally gradually calmed down after hearing his careful explanation.
As long as they hadn't reached rank ten bloodline or Genesis Realm, everything they did was within the rules of the Abyss.
They would never have to meet those four absolutely terrifying Great Lords of the Abyss.
After understanding this, they slowly relaxed instead of leaving in a hurry and fear.
The only thing they were really afraid of was the four Great Lords of the Abyss suddenly deciding to kill them out of a fit of passion.
—That was something they absolutely didn't have the physical or mental capacity to endure.
"If there's nothing else, then i wish you all good luck and good harvest. I hope that most of you have ascended to the next realm when I see you again."
