Chapter 929: Li Mu's Promise
"He's ignoring us completely!"
Yan Dong said with a dark look on his face. His eyes gleamed inside the hall as if he was plotting some malicious scheme.
Zu Xiang also looked unhappy. "If they hadn't gotten close with Flaming Sun Island, the Heaven Ghoul clansmen wouldn't have abandoned Celestial Artifact Sect and Ten Thousand Beast Mountain halfway to attack us instead."
All three of them believed that Li Mu, Yan Baiyi, and Luo Nan were the reason they were targeted specifically by the evil races. They believed that they had brought disaster upon Heavenly Sword Mountain.
"Terminator Sect's sudden appearance after three years of silence may not be good news for us either." Wang Enze narrowed his eyes and pondered for a moment. "At the time, Old Monster Nan had declared that he wouldn't care if the rest of us were to live or die. Old Monster Nan isn't someone who goes back on his words, so there's no way he's helping us to fight the evil races out of goodwill. Even if he does, Terminator Sect will definitely demand a lot of things from us. There is no way they'll help us unconditionally."
Yan Dong and Zu Xiang agreed with his assessment.
"That Qin Lie of Flaming Sun Island has the blood of the god race in him. I doubt he's plotting anything good now that he has returned after three years of disappearance!" Wang Enze inhaled deeply. "I'm sure he knows that we tried our best to force Old Monster Nan to hand him over!"
"So… you're saying that this Xu Ran and Qin Lie will be our enemies?" Yan Dong said ponderingly.
"At the very least, I don't think they'll be our friends," Wang Enze said.
Their eyes slowly turned dark.
At the peak of Heavenly Sword Mountain.
"Qin Lie, when have you come back?" Li Mu asked smilingly.
"Why don't you call Luo Chen to come over too." Yan Baiyi informed Du Xiangyang.
Du Xiangyang left cheerfully.
The group of people walked up to the wall facing a sea of clouds and sat down. They could see many gigantic palaces from this spot, and clouds surrounded them like coiling dragons.
"I just came back not long ago." Qin Lie couldn't help but smile before these people. "How have you all been, seniors?"
The moment he said this, everyone in Li Mu's group smiled wryly and shook their heads.
Even Duan Qianjie looked downcast.
"The situation is very bad." A while later, Li Mu sighed. "The evil races are even more difficult to deal with than we imagined. The problem is that the strongest Terminator Sect refused to participate in this war, and the other Silver rank forces ultimately couldn't unite as one to fight the evil races. Sigh, judging from how things are going right now, I doubt it'll be easy for the Land of Chaos to chase out and exterminate these evil races."
"If someone in the Land of Chaos can ascend to the Void Realm in a short time and suppress Bhutto, I dare say that the evil races won't act as wantonly as they did," Luo Nan said.
"If we really could take out Bhutto, the evil races would've been swiftly exterminated already. We wouldn't be hurting our heads over this." Yan Baiyi added.
It was obvious that the Void Realm ghoul, Bhutto, was the most difficult enemy to defeat for all Soul Altar experts.
As long as Bhutto wasn't dead, every Silver rank force in the Land of Chaos would have to ready themselves against this looming mountain of power at any moment.
Xu Ran smiled at Qin Lie. "They're the same as us."
Qin Lie understood that Heavenly Sword Mountain was also afraid of Bhutto.
He finally realized just how much power an expert who far surpassed all experts held over these powerful forces.
A single Void Realm Bhutto was all it took to render the great Silver rank forces of the Land of Chaos powerless.
And yet there were at least ten Void Realm experts at Bhutto's level in Boluo Realm.
Moreover, every Gold rank force in the Central World of Spirit Realm was guarded by several Void Realm experts at least.
Even better, a top rate Gold rank force had at least a couple of peak experts who had reached the Genesis Realm.
Through this war, he recognized just how important a peak expert was to all great forces.
"I know someone who can deal with Bhutto," Qin Lie said suddenly.
Li Mu and everyone else's reactions were exactly the same as Terminator Sect's earlier.
They were all dumbstruck by his words.
"A five-level Soul Altar chief commander of the Dark Shadow Race is more than capable of dealing with Bhutto," Qin Lie explained Luz's strength in detail before they even asked. "The Earth Ghoul Race and Blue Ghoul Race are going to attack Flaming Sun Island soon. When that happens, I'm going to make them suffer huge losses! Bhutto is well-versed in the power of space, so if he doesn't show up, it's gonna be his lucky day. But if he dares travel to the Setting Sun Islands then I will make sure that he stays there permanently!"
"If Bhutto is dead, then the evil races are not a real threat!" Yan Baiyi jumped to his feet.
Luo Nan also looked unusually red with excitement.
Li Mu and Duan Qianjie's eyes brightened for a second before they regained their cool.
"You really are a carrier of miracles," Li Mu praised.
"What does Heavenly Sword Mountain say?" Qin Lie asked.
"As long as someone can delay Bhutto, we can even attack the Heaven Ghoul Race first!" Yan Baiyi yelled.
"What if those three disagree?" Qin Lie looked at the distant great hall.
The moment he said this, Luo Nan and Yan Baiyi's excitement faded away into odd gloominess.
It was at this moment a sharp gleam fleeted across Li Mu's eyes. He frowned and said, "As long as you can delay Bhutto, Heavenly Sword Mountain will work together with Terminator Sect to launch a counterattack against the evil races."
"Oh!" Both Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan exclaimed in surprise.
"I have something that allows me to take decisive control over Heavenly Sword Mountain during a moment of crisis," Li Mu said calmly.
Luo Nan and Yan Baiyi's eyes abruptly lit up with great emotion. It was obvious they knew what Li Mu's underlying meaning was.
"Go. Heavenly Sword Mountain will attack the Heaven Ghoul Race the second we learn that Bhutto is in trouble." Li Mu promised Qin Lie.
"You truly deserve the title of the sixth Heavenly Sword," Xu Ran said with respect in his eyes. "Old Monster Nan once said that you are the one person in the whole Land of Chaos who most likely will surpass him in the future."
Duan Qianjie immediately narrowed his eyes competitively when he heard this.
Yan Baiyi and Luo Nan fell into deep thought after hearing this too. Li Mu was growing more and more important in their minds.
"The Forefather is humble," Li Mu said courteously.
It was at this moment Du Xiangyang and Luo Chen walked over from afar. A surprising smile was etched across Luo Chen's icy face. "Where have you been for the past three years?"
"I went to another realm." Qin Lie welcomed him with a smile.
After hugging Qin Lie somewhat unnaturally, Luo Chen said, "Do bring us with you to that realm if you have the time."
"This bastard's already at the Fragmentation Realm!" Du Xiangyang said.
Luo Chen exclaimed in surprise, "What kind of speed is this!?"
"Well, what can you do? He has the god race's bloodline in him after all." Du Xiangyang rubbed his chin and said ponderingly, "I heard that a lot of people in the Central World are born with extraordinary talent because they possess a powerful ancient race's bloodline. Hmm, for the sake of the future generation, I should probably find a couple of evil race females and sow my seeds."
"Oh? What do you think about the Earth Ghoul Race?" Yan Baiyi hit him in the head once before sneering, "Should I grab a few Earth Ghoul Race females for you to sow your seeds?"
"The Earth Ghoul Race? Forget it, just forget it." Du Xiangyang smiled wryly. "I have no desire to copulate with women who look like actual ghouls."
"Qin Lie, why don't you take Luo Chen and Du Xiangyang back to Flaming Sun Island with you? They've both been cooped up for a long time already," Li Mu said smilingly.
"Alright!" Qin Lie nodded.
Both Luo Chen and Du Xiangyang smiled cheerfully too.
"Get going." Yan Baiyi waved them away.
After building a tacit understanding with Li Mu, Qin Lie, and Xu Ran quickly departed Heavenly Sword Mountain.
Just like before, they returned to Terminator Sect through the spatial teleportation formation.
"How is it?" Lei Yan asked.
"The sixth Heavenly Sword of Heavenly Sword Mountain promises that Heavenly Sword Mountain will attack the Heaven Ghoul Race the moment Bhutto is suppressed," Xu Ran said.
"Li Mu is an impressive one. He is far more reliable than that Wang Enze. His promise certainly lightens our burdens by a lot." Shen Kui relaxed.
"Flaming Sun Island, Blood Fiend Sect, Terminator Sect, and Heavenly Sword Mountain…" Tong Zhenzhen thought for a moment before saying, "As long as Bhutto cannot threaten us, our chance of victory is definitely huge."
"I think I forgot to tell you all something." Qin Lie smiled. "Other than a five-level Soul Altar chief commander, the Dark Shadow Race also has eighteen Soul Altar experts. They are working together with me."
"What?" Lei Yan was shocked.
Xu Ran also smiled wryly after the initial shock. "I guess Flaming Sun Island is the strongest force in the Land of Chaos from here on out."
"But doesn't that mean that we have to obey his every whim in the future?" Lei Yan was troubled.
"Hehe, this is a good thing, my friend. After all, Flaming Sun Island isn't a force like Black Voodoo Cult or Celestial Artifact Sect." Xu Ran smiled.
Lei Yan and the others thought carefully for a moment before nodding in agreement.
