Diga couldn’t stop himself from shouting in surprise when Qin Lie suddenly appeared in front of him.
He thought that Qin Lie had left a long time ago.
Up until now, Diga still wasn’t too sure what had happened to Yellow Springs Purgatory.
He had slipped far away when the God Race clansmen had launched an attack against the abyss passageway. He was hoping to leave Yellow Springs Purgatory after the abyss passageway opened a few months later.
He didn’t know that Qin Lie had obtained the Galaxy Mirror, opened the abyss passageway, and then sealed it again later.
He didn’t even know what had happened to Qin Lie.
He didn’t dare head to the abyss passageway or meet up with too many Abyss Devils because he was an exile.
After his father had sent his subordinates to kill him and harvest his bloodline, the abyss passageway became even less likely a destination to him.
He had been hiding in scarcely populated areas when the world suddenly crumbled all around him, signaling the end of Yellow Springs Purgatory.
Everything had completely exceeded his expectations. For a time, infinite despair had gripped his mind.
“Y-you’re still here?” Diga asked.
“My lord! Do you still remember me, my lord!” a bat-shaped Abyss Devil said happily while grinning at Qin Lie.
Qin Lie was surprised to discover that it was the little Abyss Devil he had encountered on the other side of the Nether River a long time ago. Before he knew it, the little Abyss Devil had grown to rank six.
It meant that this little Abyss Devil had made tremendous improvements during this time. Both his bloodline and his power had grown by leaps and bounds.
“Yellow Springs Purgatory is about to fall apart. All Abyss Devils born in this purgatory will die if they don’t leave as soon as possible.” Qin Lie immediately created a star door using the Galaxy Mirror. “Diga, you…”
He hesitated for a moment before saying, “You should head to the Frost Desolation Abyss for now.”
Surprised, Diga asked, “You have the power to send me away?”
Qin Lie nodded.
“But I’d like to return to Nine Hells Purgatory,” said Diga.
“Nine Hells…” Qin Lie smiled bitterly before replying. “Unfortunately, the situation Nine Hells Purgatory is more or less the same as Yellow Springs Purgatory. The Spirit Race is fighting a war against them. If you wish to stay alive, you should stay in the Frost Desolation Abyss until the situation at Nine Hells Purgatory had stabilized.”
“My lord, my lord, your presence is everywhere!” the bat-shaped Abyss Devil chirped again.
“His presence?” Surprised, Diga asked seriously, “What do you mean, Olynik?”
The little Abyss Devil who named himself Olynik after his intelligence had grown said excitedly, “My lord’s presence is everywhere in the world! In fact, it’s growing stronger and stronger!”
Diga trembled when he heard this.
He knew that this little bat-shaped Abyss Devil was unusually sharp when it came to identifying auras. It made him realize an unbelievable truth.
“Qin Lie!” he shouted.
“Flaming Sun Abyss is slowly taking over Yellow Springs Purgatory and consuming it. Both Lawton and your father had been consumed by Castor. Daley and Afra had died as well,” Qin Lie explained in a calm tone. “You’re probably the one and only remaining blood of Grom now. The Great Lords of the Abyss had all left through the abyss passageway when they saw that the Yellow Springs Purgatory was about to collapse. All low rank Abyss Devils who failed to leave before the Flaming Sun Abyss completely consumes Yellow Springs Purgatory will be crushed by the laws.”
“How can this be? How can this be?” Diga whispered to himself in disbelief.
“My lord! Does this mean you’ll become the new Devil Monarch?” Olynik asked.
“You can say that,” Qin Lie replied noncommittally before urging Diga. “Save your questions for another time. You all don’t have much time left.”
The rank six bat and rank seven high rank Abyss Devils hurried through the star door after Qin Lie’s urge.
Olynik hesitated for a moment before saying, “Congratulations on becoming a Devil Monarch, my lord. I hope that one day I’ll be able to join you and serve you for real!” He rushed through the star door after that.
Diga finally returned to his senses after a short while.
He too left through the star door after shooting Qin Lie a complicated look.
Using his tremendous soul perception to detect all remaining Abyss Devils in this crumbling world, Qin Lie teleported again and again.
He appeared on another crumbling land before calling out to the dozen or so low rank Abyss Devils, “Leave this place immediately!”
He opened the star door while saying this.
The low rank Abyss Devils were about to give in to despair. In fact, they could already feel a crushing pressure pressing down on their bodies. There was nowhere to escape to, however.
Qin Lie’s arrival was without a doubt a ray of hope to these low rank Abyss Devils. In the end, they all managed to escape Yellow Springs Purgatory before the Flaming Sun Abyss could assimilate it completely.
Frost Desolation Abyss.
A star door kept admitting a bunch of low rank Abyss Devils into the Frost Desolation Abyss.
Dawson and the rest of the local Great Lords were about to check what was going on when Qin Lie’s Dark Soul Beast avatar who was right next to them suddenly said, “It’s fine. I’m the one who sent them over.”
They were hoping to travel to Nine Hells Purgatory through Qin Lie’s Galaxy Mirror.
Most of these Great Lords of the Abyss had come from another Abyss levels. They had come here under Dawson’s arrangements after learning of the war in the Abyss Purgatory.
“From Yellow Springs Purgatory? What happened?” Dawson asked curiously.
“Yellow Springs Purgatory has been destroyed.” Qin Lie’s Dark Soul Beast avatar stared at the new arrivals and hesitated for a moment. Then, he said, “The battle between the Devil Monarch Grom and Castor’s avatar was too much for Yellow Springs Purgatory. When the God Race regained all five Flesh Filling Tombstones, Yellow Springs Purgatory was showing signs of crumbling already. Grom used the origin power and thought that he had the situation well under control, but in the end he was devoured by Castor, setting off the destruction of Yellow Springs Purgatory…”
Qin Lie told them a half-truth before continuing, “Both the God Race and the Abyss Devils had left.”
Another powerful Abyss Devil suddenly appeared in an instant.
“Dawson! The Flaming Sun Abyss has vanished!” the newly-arrived Great Lord of the Abyss shouted the moment he arrived.
“What? The Flaming Sun Abyss has vanished? What’s going on?” Even Dawson was shocked.
This time, Qin Lie’s Dark Soul Beast avatar was completely composed. He said casually, “The Flaming Sun Abyss has entered the purgatory. It’s about to replace Yellow Springs Purgatory as a whole new purgatory—Flaming Sun Purgatory.”
The Great Lords of the Abyss gathered were completely speechless.
