Lu Li hesitated for a moment. He felt Commander Ye looked at him as well. Was Commander Ye bought off as well? Lu Li wondered in dismay.
Su Zixi patted Lu Li’s shoulders. Having no other choice, Lu Li walked toward the Beast of the Void. Then, the two of them were pulled into the Beast of Void by a light beam.
“Someone is troubling you?”
Su Zixi was clever. When they entered the Beast of the Void, they stepped to a corner and Su Zixi whispered the question.
Lu Li nodded. Su Zixi pointed downward and asked again, “Someone in the prefecture?”
Seeing that nobody was paying attention to them, Lu Li nodded again. Many people were discussing how to kill the demonists. To many people, this trip was rewarding because they could be exempted of one year’s service over little effort.
Su Zixi felt bothered as well. After some thought, he made up his mind and said, “If it’s that difficult for you, just run. I will pretend that you have fought to death. The prefecture will not list you as wanted. On the other hand, without gaining the identity of citizenship, you cannot go into cities. You will have to figure out your ways ahead by yourself. I cannot offer anything to help you out of this conundrum at the moment…”
“Do not worry about me. I will act accordingly. Take care of yourself.”
Lu Li patted Su Zixi’s shoulder. He had formally recognized Su Zixi as his friend.
Su Zixi smiled. “I will be fine. I have some ways to protect myself. If possible… I will help you eliminate your enemies.”
Lu Li patted Su Zixi’s shoulder again but said nothing much. He would remember Su Zixi’s kindness.
More people were coming into the hall in the Beast of the Void. It was like a farmer’s market here, and it was noisy. The majority were excited. After all, their days in the Valley of Vicissitudes were boring. Naturally, they were filled with delight and curiosity to enjoy a chance to work with the team on a grand mission.
The Beast of the Void should be large enough to house thousands of people, but no more came after two thousand entered.
A door opened. Dozens of prefecture warriors walked in a line, including bird-eyed Li Qiang. However, he did not look at Lu Li. He stood by the door indifferently.
Everyone quieted down in the hall. One of the prefecture warriors said, “The flight will take us three days. Our destination is the Sect of Supernatural Beings. There are tens of thousands of immortals and Followers there. The chief of the sect was a mighty warrior in the Divinity. However, he had been assassinated by powerful warriors in the sect. We will be in charge of killing the immortals and you just stay further out to get rid of the Followers. Well… the Followers are weak. You should be able to kill them easily.”
“You can keep all the spoils you get during this mission. But you cannot leave without permission. After everything is done, all must return to the Mountain of Vicissitudes or you will be wanted!”
With that said, the prefecture warriors left. That bird-eyed Li Qiang never looked at Lu Li during this time.
After the prefecture warriors were gone, the hall was drowned with noise again. Everyone felt relaxed and free of pressure.
Lu Li asked with a frown, “Brother Su, what are Followers?”
It was the first time that Lu Li had heard the term “Followers”. Su Zixi explained, “Basically, they are indigenous people in the Divinity. Many of them are not immortals. Also, there are some descendants of immortals who are not immortals themselves. Those groups are called Followers in the Divinity, they are at the bottom in the Divinity.”
Lu Li rolled his eyes. He had thought the average immortals were at the bottom in the Divinity. Were there really others who were not immortals? Wouldn’t the indigenous people in the Divinity become immortals when they grew up?
Lu Li posed this question. Su Zixi explained after some thoughts, “I don’t know about the details but there is one thing I am sure of. Ninety percent of the indigenous people in the Divinity cannot become immortals. It is said that… millions of years ago, there was this powerful warrior, an indigenous warrior in the Divinity. He once offended an almighty deity. His entire race was cursed. They could hardly grow up to the immortals and can only stay as Followers!”
Lu Li curled his lips but did not ask other questions. Those stories basically all came from incorrectly relaying an erroneous information. There must be some physical reasons. What kind of deity could have such powers to stop so many Followers from being immortals?
Lu Li did not have the time to think about the Followers. Sitting in the corner, he began to contemplate his ways ahead.
If Yan Tiangang, Commander Ye, and bird-eyed Li Qiang were to work together, then Lu Li would be faced with immense danger. He was faced with a risk graver than anything he had encountered before.
He wasn’t even sure he could defeat bird-eyed Li Qiang, not to mention Yan Tiangang or Commander Ye.
Besides, the bird-eyed prefecture warrior represented the official force. Lu Li would be wanted by the prefecture army if he were to kill the bird-eyed Li Qiang. In the future, Lu Li would be faced with constant pursuit. He would run for his life like a homeless dog until he was crushed into pieces.
In the wild, there were many wild beasts. Where could he possibly go given his abilities? He could not go into cities now. Say he was fortunate enough to survive the wild beasts, could he stay alive while not going into any cities? How could he go to the Swords Mountain? He didn’t even know where the Swords Mountain was located. Besides, he had to search for Lu Ling.
But if he did not escape, when they reached the destination, the bird-eyed prefecture warrior would probably murder him secretly. Faced with a prefecture warrior, should Lu Li fight back or allow himself to be arrested without putting up a fight?
He was trapped in an impossible and yet critical situation.
Even though he knew he was faced with the most severe trials, there was nothing Lu Li could do other than stepping into the trap.
Before he ascended, Lu Li had expected that he would be in danger in the Divinity. However, the danger had come so quickly and so directly.
While seemingly calm, Lu Li was burning inside. With each minute passing by, he became more and more anxious.
He was not afraid of death but did not intend to sacrifice his life. Once he died, his jade talisman of life would be broken. Jiang Qiling, Bai Qiuxue, and Bai Xiashuang would commit suicide to follow in his steps. Lu Zhengyang, Lu Renhuang, and Patriarch of Law Enforcement would cry their eyes out and the Lu Family might be wiped out by others.
Time zipped by. It had been a peaceful flight. Lu Li wondered if they just didn’t run into any wild beasts or the prefecture warriors had to get rid of them.
Three days later, the Beast of the Void stopped at a mountain. At the peak were many huge castles and there seemed to be people moving about there.
Someone said. The door opened and the prefecture warrior’s orders were delivered, “When you are outside, spread out and surround the mountain. Do not let go of any servant. If there are powerful immortals trying to break out from the encirclement, stall them for a moment and we will come soon!”
Su Zixi and Lu Li stepped to the door and descended from the Beast of the Void. They gazed at the mountain in the distance. Faintly, they could see the castles on the peak which demonstrated the style of a sect.
Soon, black smoke began to rise from the peak. The smoke enveloped all the castles and was spreading out quickly. It was as if a huge beast had swallowed the mountain.
“Prefecture warriors, kill all the demonists!”
Commander Ye stood in the air. He also had a blue spear in his hand. Around him was a glaring blue hue. There seemed to be an illusion of an elephant behind him, which was quite terrifying. Commander Ye shouted, “The entire Sect of Supernatural Beings has been infected. Kill them all. Spare no one!”
