Chapter #421 – 421 His Followers’ Developmen
Because the group’s soul imprints were bound to Li Yunmu’s heavenly world, the five of them could clearly sense that not only was their master still alive, his strength had increased rapidly during the years he was gone.
The sensation of him becoming more powerful every day was becoming increasingly more intense. But he wasn’t alone in getting stronger. The presences of Li Qinghong and Demon seemed to have strengthened greatly as well.
“I can sense Elder Sister Qinghong’s presence. She is progressing at lightning speed.”
Flowing Cloud forced out a bitter smile.
The five of them had thought that their increase in strength during the couple years had been astonishing, but when compared to Li Qinghong who had descended to the Origin World, they were like ordinary trains compared to bullet trains. Even when compared to Demon they were a bit slower.
It had to be known that they had used the King’s True Territory without any hold back, absorbing the divine blood there to improve their bloodlines.
“How much divine blood have we collected?” asked Blade Overlord, who was responsible of making decisions while Li Yunmu was away.
“Until now, we have collected two thousand seven hundred sixty-three drops,” Underworld Hand answered.
“Still far from sufficient. This speed is a lot slower compared to our master at that time.”
Blade Overlord shook his head in dissatisfaction while the other four forced out bitter smiles. They had realized the vast disparity between their strength compared to that of Li Yunmu, even if it was him from two and a half years ago. At that time, his speed of killing the monsters in the king’s true territory was a lot faster compared to theirs, even after their strength had increased. From this, they could clearly see the vast difference between his strength and their own combined one.
But Blade Overlord and the others didn’t know that Li Yunmu had used shadow hack system which didn’t know fatigue or exhaustion.
In fact, any one of them now was comparable to Xiye Hanbei of back then; otherwise they wouldn’t be considered overlords of the Fifth Dimension. It was just that they were mistaken about Li Yunmu’s strength.
“We haven’t fallen behind on capturing and nurturing ape gods. We have already gathered one thousand six hundred of them. But if we provide them with divine blood and have them awaken their ancestral bloodlines before they enter a contract with master by binding their souls, I won’t feel at ease.” Devil Monkey sighed deeply.
“We needn’t act with haste. As long as we prepare enough divine blood, then once master returns, this problem will easily be resolved.”
“Ohh, I feel that the day of heavenly transformation isn’t too far. Beginning from tomorrow, we must increase our pace,” Nangong Gongzi said while nodding. During the past two years, all of them had acted together to kill many monsters in the king’s true territory and absorbed many drops of divine blood which greatly increased the potential of their bloodline.
Moreover, while killing king grade monsters all the time, they had also condensed the eight rainbow lights of their devil king armor. It could be said that they had surpassed Li Yunmu in this aspect. Unlike them, he hadn’t condensed even a single rainbow light of his king crystal armor because of the lack of twelve rainbow light kings.
But if Li Yunmu knew about the situation of his five followers, he would’ve been extremely satisfied.
“That’s right, since times are becoming increasingly more chaotic and dangerous, we cannot wait any longer. We must attack the twelve rainbow light kings. Master couldn’t even condense one rainbow light because of the lack of twelve rainbow light flux crystals,” Flowing Cloud said while grinding her teeth.
Twelve rainbow light kings were extremely formidable. Even the ordinary kings were extremely powerful, then what to speak of the twelve rainbow light ones who had evolved because of divine blood.
Due to that, despite the great increase in the five’s strength, they hadn’t yet launched an attack on the terrifying monsters.
But they couldn’t wait anymore and had to brave the danger.
“Don’t be anxious, even if the twelve rainbow light kings transformed by divine blood are extremely terrifying, none of us are allowed to die. Devil Monkey, how is that matter proceeding?” Blade Overlord was extremely calm.
“It is beginning to materialize. After that lord sensed the great increase in our strength, his attitude toward us changed greatly. As long as he consents with our demand and provides that forbidden weapon, our success against the twelve rainbow light kings will increase by 20%,” Devil Monkey replied with delight.
Among the five of them, only Devil Monkey stepped out of the hidden domain. He was the most experienced in disguising himself, which was why he had gone out to establish relationships.
When everyone heard his good news, all of them were delighted. As long as that lord consented to deliver the forbidden weapon to them, they would have assurance of victory when dealing with the twelve rainbow light kings.
Naturally, everyone understood that the only reason behind the change in the lord’s attitude toward the five of them was Li Yunmu.
As his followers, they were bound to his heavenly world. When the other party saw Devil Monkey’s strength increase rapidly, they clearly understood that his master, Li Yunmu, was living quite well in the Origin World.
If Li Yunmu had died, his followers would have also perished with him. If he had been weakened or severely injured in the Origin World, Devil Monkey and the others would have also suffered the same.
But Devil Monkey hadn’t weakened. On the contrary, his strength had increased greatly. The lord has thus changed his position and consented to provide them with the forbidden weapon because he had decided to gamble on Li Yunmu.
The five followers weren’t idiots and clearly understood that fact. Blade Overlord and the others also didn’t want to miss the opportunity of using the helping hand. After all, there was no reason that they shouldn’t do so.
“We only need to wait for a bit more. I think that lord will make his decision soon. As long as we obtain that forbidden weapon, we can quickly kill the twelve rainbow light monsters who have been transformed by divine blood. As for what to do now, everyone should use the time to gather more divine blood as well as ape gods. This was master’s main command before he descended.”
The four others enthusiastically nodded.
Li Yunmu wasn’t aware of the events happening on Earth, and a month passed while he was cultivating on the island. During it, his strength had advanced to the next level, reaching forty-seven oxen from forty.
After attaining that level of physical strength, he wasn’t far from crossing one of the thresholds to become a great flux master.
