Chapter 1216: Bone Race
At the entrance to the secret realm, he and Xuan Luo had fought. He was familiar with Xuan Luo's bloodline.
Hearing the roar in the air, and the incoming icy presence, he immediately determined Xuan Luo was the attacker in the darkness.
"You are... Qin Lie?!"
In the darkness, Xuan Luo was shocked and stopped his attack.
"Hong Kai was right. You are still alive," Qin Lie said gravely.
"You saw Hong Kai? He is still alive?" Xuan Luo was excited.
"He and Gan Xing are together," Qin Lie answered.
"As long as he is alive. I thought... I was the only one left." Xuan Luo spoke with clear frustration and sadness.
Qin Lie did not speak. He remained silent as he mentally communicated with the Spirits of Void and Chaos.
He had used the Blitz Thunder Escape successively to leave that hunting squad of high rank Abyss Devils. Enos could no longer feel his location using her bloodline.
In other words, albeit temporarily, he was safe.
He tried to communicate with the thunder spirit following Gan Xing and the others. He found that Gan Xing's group was far from him and they should be still within Enos's range.
Therefore, he was not in a hurry to meet up with Gan Xing and the others.
"How come you are alone? What about them?" Seeing Qin Lie's silence, Xuan Luo hesitated and asked, "What… is their situation?"
"One dead," Qin Lie said.
Xuan Luo was shocked. "Just one dead? You did not encounter any enemy factions?"
"We did, but we had good luck. we did not encounter a hunting squad of a hundred powerful Abyss Devils," Qin Lie responded. Thinking for a moment, he said, "In a while, I will send you to meet up with Gan Xing and the others."
"You... know where they are? You can find them?" Xuan Luo was shocked.
"Yes, when they are further away from the hunting squad, I will bring you over," Qin Lie said.
Xuan Luo was silent for a moment, and nodded. "Alright."
At this moment, he was filled with curiosity towards Qin Lie. He did not know how Qin Lie managed to maintain contact with Gan Xing and the others in the secret realm.
He thought that his bloodline was stronger than Qin Lie's. But in this place, he could not see anything or feel anything with his soul.
Therefore, once he separated from Hong Kai, he feared they would never meet again. He felt that Hong Kai was most likely dead.
Hong Kai also thought the same.
And Qin Lie... after separating from Gan Xing, seemed able to reunite with Gan Xing and the others at any time. This appeared fantastical to him.
"Yiya! Yiyaya ..."
The four Spirits of Void and Chaos romared around as they messaged Qin Lie so he could see the surrounding situation clearly.
After a while, Qin Lie suddenly said, "Xuan Luo, other than us, is there anyone else being hunted by these Abyss Devils?"
"The Winged Race, the Bone Race, and one or two members of the Spirit Race," Xuan Luo answered.
Qin Lie was shocked.
The Winged Race was naturally slightly weaker than the four transcendent races, but the Spirit Race was one of the strongest races in the universe.
The Spirit Race was also being chased.
"One or two..."
A moment later, he realized that the Spirit Race was like Xuan Luo and the others. They were defeated because they were few in number.
"Some of the others are not far from us. Should we go take a look?" he suddenly suggested.
Just as he was being silent, the four Spirits of Void and Chaos had discovered nearby presences.
Through the Spirits of Void and Chaos, he knew there were several soul vibrations active near them.
Clearly, those people were ones being chased, just like Xuan Luo.
Fortunately, this place was far from where the hunting squad was. This meant that they had successfully escaped as well.
The group of a hundred high rank Abyss Devils including Enos and Vicente was so strong he had no way of dealing with them.
He knew just with the Blaze Family alone, he would be torn to pieces by those Abyss Devils if he remained nearby.
So an idea formed in his mind...
"You, you do not have a Darklight Stone. Who can you know people are nearby?" Xuan Luo said in shock.
"I have my methods," Qin Lie said casually.
"Alright, I will go with you to look." Xuan Luo remained puzzled.
Qin Lie immediately led the way.
An hour later, bursts of cracking came from in front of him and Xuan Luo.
Xuan Luo hear the unusual sound and immediately knew their identity. He said, "Are you a friend of the Bone Race?"
"You are?" a shrill voice asked in the language of the Abyss.
"God Race," Xuan Luo answered.
"As long as you are not those Abyss Devils," the other responded.
Following the brief exchange, a weak light appeared in front.
It was a fist-sized piece of a Darklight Stone.
Two skeletons that were about a meter and a half tall appeared under the light of the Darklight Stone.
Those were two members of the Bone Race.
The Bone Race clansmen had neither flesh nor skin. Their bodies consisted of jade-like bones with a mysterious sheen.
Their eyes were like jewels that shone with eerie light.
They held a small piece of Darklight Stone each as they walked in front of Qin Lie and Xuan Luo, their jewel-like eyes moving rapidly.
"You do not want to fight?" a Bone Race clansman said.
Xuan Luo shook his head. Under the light of the Darklight Stone, his eyes lit up and he looked at Qin Lie. "You are able to feel life vibrations in here?"
"Your soul is not restricted here?" the Bone Race member said in shock.
Qin Lie shook his head. "I am using another method."
He looked curiously at the Bone Race clansmen.
Through this period of time and the memories of the Soul Beast, he gradually learned more about the races of the universe.
The Bone Race was an unusual race, who was similarly just below the transcendent races in strength. In realms far from Spirit Realm, the Bone Race was famed.
Yet in Qin Lie's eyes, these clansmen of the Bone Race looked like nothing more than living skeletons.
However, their bones were not gray and matt.
They were made of jade-like crystal that contained abundant refined flesh and blood energy.
Their bones also flowed with marrow-like blood fluid. Their latent abilities were also powerful.
The Bone Race was stronger in combat than the Winged Race, and had once ruled a part of the universe.
"If you do not want to fight, we will leave. We have to find other survivors of our race," a Bone Race member said coolly.
"That group is too strong. With just your strength and our strength, we cannot fight back." Qin Lie thought and said, "I have a suggestion. Will you be interested?"
"Working together?" That Bone Race member immediately guessed Qin Lie's intentions and shook his head. "I do not trust the god race. We only have to find other members of our race and leave here. We just have to avoid clashing against these Abyss Devils."
"You will have a difficult time finding your living members but I... can help," Qin Lie said.
"You can help us find the survivors?" The Bone Race clansman was shocked.
"Yes, I can help you gather those of your races," Qin Lie answered.
"Prove it to us. And then… we will decide once we have gathered. We are not leaders of our group. We don't have power to decide," the skeleton said.
"Alright," Qin Lie responded.
He immediately communicated with the four Spirits of Void and Chaos. He had them remember the presences of the two Bone Race clansmen and had them search.
Soon after, the water spirit sent a message from its area.
Qin Lie's expression changed and he said, "Follow me."
Xuan Luo and the two Bone Race clansmen hesitated and followed closely.
An hour later.
A Bone Race clansman about one hundred and seventy centimeters appeared, their jade-like bones covered in cracks.
He was taller than the other two, but only by a bit.
The second the figure came into view, the other two lunged at him excitedly. "Lord! Lord, you are still alive!"
"You two idiots, why are you with members of the God Race!?" the tall skeleton shouted angrily.
