Chapter 995: The Key to the Secret Realm
The reason the Qin Family was destroyed was because they were growing so strong that they they threatened to surpass all top rate Gold rank forces in the Central World.
Despite being humans themselves, the Qin Family was ultimately double-crossed by Ninth Heaven and its allies and forced into hiding.
Sky Mender Palace and the Ji Family hadn’t participated in the plot, but they didn’t express their stance either.
Perhaps the leaders of Sky Mender Palace and the Ji Family had tacitly permitted their movements behind the scenes.
Scarlet Tide Continent’s Profound Heaven Alliance and Eight Extreme Temple were both Heavenly Sword Mountain’s Copper rank forces, but they constantly waged war against each other every year.
The nine Silver rank forces at the Land of Chaos were only engaged in greater conflict.
After the Qin Family had vanished from the Central World, the remaining eight top Gold rank forces continued to clash against one another both overtly and covertly.
At Boluo Realm, the racial wars between the Ancient Beast Race, Giant Race, Black Jail Race and other races had continued for thousands of years too.
In this world, there were no realms with intelligent lifeforms that were at peace. The conflicts between races and within one’s species would always exist… it was a tune that would never end.
Thirty thousand years ago, the hundred races still would’ve fought one another endlessly even if the God Race hadn’t shown up.
After the God Race had been chased away from Spirit Realm, the human race rose to prominence and began expanding their territories into other races’ realm. They constantly clashed against the powerful ancient races.
The way human race acted was essentially no different from God Race back then.
“Either we become strong enough to conquer others, or we will become the conquered…”
Qin Lie muttered to himself as the determination grew stronger and stronger. His expression turned cold and merciless as he looked at the human race and other races.
“What should we do now, master?” Zhuang Jing asked softly.
Right now, the foreign races led by Lando were charging the human race and clashing against them intensely.
All kinds of strange spirit artifacts clashed against one another in the small space around the spatial passage. Colorful energy beams, ice blades, fireballs, thunder rumbles and lightning bolts erupted between the powerful beings again and again.
Ye Yilan, Ji Qi, Ao Jing, and the other human forces’ leaders had ordered their subordinates to stay behind and keep the foreign races busy.
They themselves had secretly sneaked their way to the prismatic spatial passage while the battle was still ensuing.
Then, they vanished into the spatial passage after the giant dragons’ footsteps, leaving the mess that was this battle to their subordinates to deal with.
The human race’s leaders have already charged inside!” Lando let out a strange howl.
The foreign clansmen roared in response and attacked the human race with all their might.
The eight Gold rank forces had left behind about a hundred or so martial practitioners on the outside. They formed a solid battle line and kept the foreign races firmly away from the spatial passage.
“Ji Qi had left with the Heavengold Mirror.” Zhuang Jing’s eyes lit up.
Qin Lie suddenly noticed that the surrounding space had begun to distort once more after Ji Qi had vanished.
The spatial rifts had reappeared, the energy storms had reformed, the astral winds had begun to blow once more and the chaotic energies had returned.
The five Spirits of Void and Chaos suddenly regained the ability to manipulate the unusual hazards of the chaotic streams of space.
They controlled the energy storms and made them rush towards the spatial passage.
“Not good! Now that Ji Qi’s gone, he once again is the ruler of this situation thanks to his Spirits of Void and Chaos!”
“None of us can resist the natural hazards of the chaotic streams of space!”
“What can we do? If we can’t stop him, we can’t stop the foreign races either!”
“Go go go! Everyone head inside!”
The human martial practitioners quickly arrived at a mutual understanding after they communicated swiftly with one another.
Not long after, they escaped into the spatial passage right before Qin Lie’s eyes.
No one tried to stop the foreign races from advancing any longer.
“See, I told you to ignore that guy. Him being around is beneficial to all of us,” Lando of the Asura Race said.
The Sea Race and Wood Race clansmen around him expressed their agreement and felt admiration towards Lando.
“Let’s not dilly dally around here any longer. The human race and Giant Dragon Race are already inside!” an Ancient Beast clansman yelled.
The encroaching energy storms forced the humans to give up their defense lines and slip into the spatial passage.
The moment they gave up, the foreign races were given an excuse to barge into the spatial passage themselves.
“What about us? Shouldn’t we head in already?” Zhuang Jing asked anxiously.
Qin Lie had withdrawn the eight Thunderblitz wood slabs and was slowly making his way towards the prismatic spatial passage.
“There’s no hurry. We’ll wait until everyone has gone inside,” Qin Lie said calmly.
“If we go in last, we may not be able to grab even the tiniest treasure for ourselves, master. I think we should head in now.” Zhuang Jing tried to persuade Qin Lie to change his mind.
Qin Lie shook his head. “There’s no hurry.”
Zhuang Jing gloomily accepted his decision. Although she was absolutely anxious on the inside, she was given no choice but to wait with him.
The foreign races outside and Guan Lian of Blue Flame Manor hastily dashed into the rainbow-colored spatial passage as fast as lightning.
Qin Lie wore an indifferent expression on his face. Surprisingly, he didn’t stop Guan Lian and the Blue Flame Manor martial practitioners from entering.
He allowed everyone to enter the spatial passage.
As the energy storms floated around him, he watched the last Sea Race clansman slipping into the spatial passage like he was just a bystander.
“Alright, everyone’s gone in. What do we do now?” Zhuang Jing smiled bitterly.
Qin Lie looked and probed the surroundings with his soul consciousness. As Zhuang Jing said, there were no longer any lifeforms around the area.
He ordered the Spirits of Void and Chaos with his mind.
The five Spirits of Void and Chaos flew away like five light beams towards five different directions. It was to confirm that no one else was hiding somewhere beyond the range of his soul consciousness
Qin Lie tried to communicate with the fire Spirit of Void and Chaos still undergoing its evolution inside the Soul Suppressing Orb.
Unfortunately, it didn’t answer his call.
“If the fire Spirit of Void and Chaos successfully evolves to the next rank in time, it should be able to play a bigger role in the chaotic streams of space. This is unfortunate…” Shaking his head, Qin Lie finally brought out the Demon Sealing Tombstone also known as the Flesh Filling Tombstone from his spatial ring.
The moment the Demon Sealing Tombstone was brought into the open, the seven godly lights on the surface of the tombstone abruptly glowed bright.
The prismatic light the spatial passage was giving off also glowed in response after the Demon Sealing Tombstone had appeared. Its light was so dazzling that it couldn’t be looked at directly.
What was most surprising was that the light inside the spatial passage actually split up into seven individual light beams and stretched out of the spatial passage.
The rainbow joined together with the godly lights of the Demon Sealing Tombstone and became as one.
Zhuang Jing abruptly let out a exclamation of surprise as she stared at the prismatic spatial passage, the Demon Sealing Tombstone and Qin Lie in great astonishment.
“The real entrance won’t open without this tombstone,” Qin Lie said calmly.
While saying this, the seven godly lights began to change forms constantly as ancient God Race runes rose up from the Demon Sealing Tombstone.
The spatial passage suddenly glowed brightly as if it had remade itself into a new spatial passage.
“But they’ve gone into the spatial passage, haven’t they? Where… are those people right now?” Zhuang Jing asked in alarm.
Qin Lie grinned coldly. “Wherever they are right now, it’s probably not as interesting as they hoped, I believe.”
Fear and shock suddenly colored Zhuang Jing’s expression. She then thanked her lucky stars.
She was glad she hadn’t rushed into the spatial passage on impulse.
