Chapter 1645: Revelation
It was impossible to hide the fact that the Flaming Sun Abyss was replacing Yellow Springs Purgatory for too long.
In fact, Qin Lie knew full well that the Great Lords of the Abyss before him would be among the first to receive the news.
They would probably learn of the giant change in Yellow Springs Purgatory in just a few days.
In that case, he might as well confess this part of the truth and give Dawson no chance to doubt him.
Moreover, the oldest laws of the Abyss would automatically forbid these Great Lords of the Abyss from entering the Flaming Sun Abyss during the transformation process.
Therefore, he didn’t need to worry about them intercepting or damaging his good fortune.
Moreover, his Dark Soul Beast avatar currently had rank ten soulline. As long as the Galaxy Mirror still remained in his possession, he didn’t need to worry about his own safety.
“Flaming Sun Abyss will transform into a purgatory…” Dawson sucked in a deep breath as he stared at Qin Lie in shock. “Are you serious, Qin Lie?”
“I have no need to hide this from you.” Qin Lie sighed. “However, what is the dream of a lifetime to you all, may not necessarily be good news to me.”
“You must be joking!” Russell, the second strongest Great Lord of the Frost Desolation Abyss clearly didn’t believe him.
“Castor has awakened,” Qin Lie said.
“Castor the Abyss Master!”
“He has woken up from his slumber?”
All the Great Lords of the Abyss here were as strong as Dawson. They had also lived for several million years.
Younger Great Lords of the Abyss like Russell and Belle didn’t know Castor too well. They only realized who he was after Dawson had explained to them.
The stronger, older Abyss Devils had heard of Castor since they were young. Some of them had even received direct orders from him.
They knew that Castor was exceptionally powerful, and that Castor was sealed away only due to the combined efforts of eight Devil Monarchs and the patriarch of the Demon Spirits of Space and Time. They even had to sacrifice the Galaxy Mirror in the process.
A lot of the Great Lords of the Abyss looked terrified when they heard that Castor had awakened from his slumber.
Puzzled by their reaction, Qin Lie asked curiously, “Castor used to be the Abyss Master, isn’t he? His awakening meant that the one hundred and nine—excuse me, I mean one hundred and eight—Abyss levels would have a new master. But why are you all looking so scared? Shouldn’t you be happy for his return?”
The rank ten Great Lords of the Abyss suddenly fell silent.
Dawson let out a bitter sigh before shaking his head. “No one wishes for his return.”
“Why’s that?” Qin Lie grew more and more curious.
“We’re not talking about this now.” But Dawson shook his head and changed the subject. He asked, “You said that it may not necessarily be good that the Flaming Sun Abyss is transforming into a new purgatory. Why’s that?”
Qin Lie’s face darkened as he answered, “Castor’s the one who ensured that the Flaming Sun Abyss will be chosen to replace Yellow Springs Purgatory. He wants to use me to return to peak strength.”
“He wants to use you? At his peak, any of Castor’s avatars is stronger than even the strongest Abyss Devil among us. Why would he need you for?” a foreign Great Lord of the Abyss asked.
The Great Lords of the Abyss who didn’t know the true value of Qin Lie’s Perfect Blood looked confused as well. They all thought that Qin Lie was being arrogant.
But Dawson knew how miraculous his blood really was. He quickly figured out the reason in no time.
“Alright, enough.” Dawson spoke up before asking, “I thought you guys wanted to go to Nine Hells Purgatory? Who else still wants to go now that Yellow Springs Purgatory is destroyed?”
The dozen or so Great Lords of the Abyss suddenly fell silent.
They seemed to be measuring if the benefits outweighed the danger they would be facing.
A short while later, a couple of Great Lords of the Abyss declared their intentions to return to their Abyss level, claiming that the situation in the Abyss Purgatory had become too complicated for their liking.
Upon closer inspection, Qin Lie noticed that these Great Lords of the Abyss were the ones who showed the most fear towards Castor.
He immediately understood that these Abyss Devils were retreating not because they were afraid of the Spirit Race.
Castor was the one they were afraid of.
If even a single one of Castor’s avatar was awakened, the rest of his avatars would awaken as well. They must have assumed that was the case in Nine Hells Purgatory as well.
Their prediction was right on the money.
“Is there anyone else who wishes to retreat?” Dawson asked again.
The ones who remained showed no reaction to his question. They all stood as firmly as a boulder.
“Alright, send us to Nine Hells Purgatory, Qin Lie,” said Dawson.
“Give me a minute, let me transfer all the low rank Abyss Devils of Yellow Springs Purgatory to the Frost Desolation Abyss first,” replied Qin Lie.
“Okay, sure.” Dawson nodded.
Flaming Sun Abyss was still consuming the breaking pieces of Yellow Springs Purgatory.
Even now, Qin Lie could clearly feel the growth and the transformation of the Flaming Sun Abyss.
In fact, the Flaming Sun Abyss had grown almost twice as big again during their conversation.
“Your bloodline hasn’t reached rank ten yet, am I right?” one of the Great Lords of the Frost Desolation Abyss, Belle, asked.
She knew that the Qin Lie before her was just an avatar. It was a Soul Race avatar even.
“Yes. What’s wrong?” Qin Lie asked in puzzlement.
Belle let out a chuckle before looking at the Great Lords of the Abyss around her. “Have you ever heard of a rank nine Devil Monarch?”
The group of Great Lords of the Abyss fell silent at once. Everyone looked like they were deep in thought.
“Does anyone feel like this guy has broken many ancient laws since he appeared in the Abyss?” Belle stopped for a moment before continuing, “The way he obtained the Origin World is strange. The fact that the Origin World had transformed into the Flaming Sun Abyss while he had just a rank eight bloodline is strange as well. Then, the Flaming Sun Abyss kept sinking lower and lower until suddenly, it moved all the way into the Eight Purgatories. Now, it’s even going to replace Yellow Springs Purgatory.”
Belle looked like she wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry. “No Abyss Devil had been able to change the oldest laws of the Abyss for tens of millions of years. Then this guy showed up and broke all the laws…”
The Great Lords of the Abyss shot Qin Lie odd looks after hearing that.
“What are you trying to say, Belle?” Dawson wasn’t sure where she was going with this.
Belle fell silent for a moment before replying, “While my bloodline was breaking through to rank ten, I had received a revelation from my bloodline imprint. To put it simply, it is about a great change in the laws of the Abyss, and the coming of a great chaos!”
“Eh! I think I received a similar revelation as well while I was breaking through to rank ten!” a different Great Lord of the Abyss exclaimed in surprise.
“I received a similar revelation while I was receiving a bloodline inheritance and breaking through to rank ten as well! It presented itself a bit different, but the general meaning was similar to what you just said!”
Soon, all the rank ten Great Lords of the Abyss were shouting in surprise.
Even Dawson’s expression had changed slightly. It would appear that he had received a similar revelation during his breakthrough to rank ten.
Qin Lie was the only one who didn’t understand what was going on. “What are you guys talking about?”
“We’re talking about you.” said Belle with a sigh.
“What’s wrong with me?” Qin Lie felt even more confused.
“We’re saying that you are possibly that special one who’s destined to change the Abyss forever,” replied Belle.
Qin Lie was astonished by her answer.
