Chapter 817: Forming An Agreement
"You said before that you had two matters. Let's not talk about helping Celestial Artifact Sect. What is the other matter?" Seeing Jiang Zhuzhe’s silence, Qin Lie frowned and asked proactively.
Jiang Zhuzhe's eyes flashed with bloody light as his mind immediately calmed. He had a relaxed smile at the corner of his mouth as though he had been freed of something.
"The Heavenly Calamity Continent is being attacked by the Earth Ghoul Race right now. According to my information network, the three families are not in a good state. If not for Black Voodoo Cult's support, the three families would have a hard time winning over the Earth Ghoul Race."
"Currently, the three families do not have the ability to control the Heavenly Calamity Continent. I think... it is time for us to return to Blood Cloud Mountain Range and take back what belongs to our Blood Fiend Sect."
Jiang Zhuzhe smiled slightly and said, "Two years ago, when the three families and Black Voodoo Cult invaded the Setting Sun Islands, they clearly had malicious intentions towards you. As long as the three families and Black Voodoo Cult exist, they will not give up on Blood Fiend Sect. You and I, as well as senior brother and senior sister cultivate the Blood Spirit Art and will be their enemies."
"You want to ally with me and drive the three great families out of the Heavenly Calamity Continent?" Qin Lie's expression changed.
"Exactly!" Jiang Zhuzhe had a proud expression. "A thousand years ago, the three families colluded with outsiders, and under the help of Black Voodoo Cult, they allied with the major Silver rank forces to attack Blood Cloud Mountain Range and exterminate the experts of Blood Fiend Sect. After that, the members of Blood Fiend Sect fled and left. They withered away and had to struggle to live."
"The three families rose because of this, stealing the Heavenly Calamity Continent, stepping on the bones of Blood Fiend Sect, drinking the blood of Blood Fiend Sect, slowly growing powerful to become three Silver rank forces!"
"The fertile Heavenly Calamity Continent should belong to Blood Fiend Sect, but it is being occupied by lowly rats! I have endured for a thousand years, now is the time. This time, I will not give up on this chance!"
Qin Lie's expression was grave. He started thinking it over, and wasn't in a hurry to respond.
He had no positive feelings toward Black Voodoo Cult, and the three families, but... the state of affairs was extremely sensitive. All the forces in the Land of Chaos were enemies with the three ghoul races, and many internal conflicts had halted.
Even Celestial Artifact Sect expressed that they would only publicize his identity after they drove out the three ghoul races or killed them, so that he would have nowhere to go.
At this important time, if they went into the Heavenly Calamity Continent and attacked the three families, would they cause the displeasure of the other forces?
Also, while the other factions accepted Blood Fiend Sect, they only recognized the branch of Blood Fiend Sect on the Setting Sun Islands.
Jiang Zhuzhe was still being treated as an unorthodox demon. The calamity he created a thousand year ago caused many martial practitioners to be drained of blood.
If he allied with this person, he would become a target all over again. The other would tarnish him by association.
As though he saw Qin Lie's worries, Jiang Zhuzhe snickered and said, "I know what you are worried about."
Not waiting for Qin Lie to respond, Jiang Zhuzhe continued, "We will not ally in public. Our cooperation will be fully covert. Flaming Sun Island and Blood Fiend Sect will openly proceed with driving the three families out, after the battle between the three families and the Earth Ghoul Race. And I will be responsible for doing those things that cannot be seen in light. I will help you attack Black Voodoo Cult's reinforcements and assassinate the experts of the three families. I will not appear at the same time as you."
Qin Lie's expression relaxed slightly.
"With me present, even if Jiang An wanted to interfere, he would have to consider it." Jiang Zhuzhe pointed at Miao Fengtian and said, "Other than him, I have at least one more Soul Altar expert strong enough to deal with the people from Black Voodoo Cult."
"The three families have four Soul Altar experts, but Xiahou Jie is the only two-level Soul Altar!"
When my senior brother can channel the power of the Blood Progenitor's Soul Altar's second level, he can easily defeat the Xiahou Family. After Mo Jun builds his one-level Soul Altar, he can take care of one as well. Your eight god corpses and those evil dragons are enough to capture the last two Soul Altar experts of the three families."
Jiang Zhuzhe knew Flaming Sun Island and Blood Fiend Sect in great detail. He knew that Mo Jun was building his Soul Altar and knew all of his trump cards.
Jiang Zhuzhe had considered the matter in great detail before reaching a conclusion and bringing the matter up with Qin Lie.
"Do not worry. You will be the one to take the initiative against the three families for the public affairs. Give all the dirty things needed to be done in secret to us," Jiang Zhuzhe urged.
"If we really recapture the Heavenly Calamity Continent, what do you want, what will Blood Fiend Sect get, and what will Flaming Sun Island get?" Qin Lie asked.
"Very simple." Jiang Zhuzhe's eyes lit up and he said, chuckling, "Senior brother and the others can move into Blood Cloud Mountain Range, and they can take back the territories and mines that used to belong to Blood Fiend Sect. All I want are the territories that currently belong to the three families. This way, we can each have half of Heavenly Calamity Continent. Heavenly Calamity Continent will belong to two different branches of Blood Fiend Sect, but they are both part of the same sect.. Heavenly Calamity Continent will be ruled by Blood Fiend Sect!"
"And what about me and Flaming Sun Island?" Qin Lie snorted.
"When Senior Brother returns to Blood Cloud Mountain Range, the Setting Sun Islands, Gold Sun Island, Black Cloud Palace, the Pan Family, and Heavenly Sea Pavilion's territories, and even Blue Moon Valley's territories will belong to Flaming Sun Island." Jiang Zhuzhe smiled. "At that time, Flaming Sun Island's territories will be more than ten times greater. If you are strong enough, you can move against Black Voodoo Cult and Illusory Demon Sect, and continue to expand."
"Also... the Shadow Earth Palace underneath Blue Flame City. I will allow you and the evil dragons to excavate it. If there are no surprises, you can find new evil dragons and more mysteries about the Evil Dragon Race in that Shadow Earth Palace."
"How do you know about ‘Shadow Earth Palace’ underneath Blue Flame City?" Qin Lie was startled.
Jiang Zhuzhe said slowly, "Blood Fiend Sect were the masters of the Heavenly Calamity Continent, my understanding of the Heavenly Calamity Continent surpasses understanding of others. A thousand years ago, I led the Blood Drinkers to hunt all over the Heavenly Calamity Continent. At that time, the three families were my prey. I once led the Blood Drinkers deep underground. I know of that place, but there are great wards there. At that time, I was unable to venture too deeply. After the fact, I studied many ancient records and learned what was buried there."
"There are sleeping evil dragons, and evil dragons... are something you could use."
Pausing, he continued, "Other than this, once your identity is exposed and you are being targeted by multiple forces, all of the Heavenly Calamity Continent, and Blood Fiend Sect can support you. At that time, if Terminator Sect and Heavenly Sword Mountain still stand on your side, with your own Flaming Sun Island's strength, even if the other forces and races are displeased, they cannot do anything to you."
Qin Lie's eyes flashed. He thought for a moment. Then he said, "Blood Fiend Sect will have to give permission first."
"I will persuade Blood Fiend Sect, as long as you give your agreement," Jiang Zhuzhe said proudly.
"Why do you think so highly of me?" Qin Lie said in bewilderment.
Jiang Zhuzhe looked deeply at him. "It seems that you have not recognized what you possess right now."
"The eight god corpses are enough to kill a one-level Soul Altar, and can even rival a two-level expert. That evil dragon called Gilbert can rival a two-level Soul Altar expert. Those other evil dragons possess strengths of Nirvana Realm experts. The Blazing Profound Bombs also possess destructive power in large-scale battles. Other than this, you have these six strange beings, and I ... know what they are! The terrifying beings called Soul Altar devourers are an unimaginable intimidation to Soul Altar experts."
"On top of that, there are also artificers of Gray Island and their terrifying ability to gather wealth. Flaming Sun Island's strength may be stronger than any one of the three families! If you truly start fighting, your importance is unfathomable"
"In my view, the strength of Flaming Sun Island surpasses the Blood Fiend Sect that my senior brother leads.
“And Flaming Sun Island has only used three years to develop to this stage."
Jiang Zhuzhe's eyes flashed with wariness. He clearly recognized the terrifying nature of Flaming Sun Island.
Qin Lie thought and then said, "If you could persuade Blood Fiend Sect, I will have no problems on my side."
"It's settled then!"
