“Careful, Di Han!”
Di Huo and Di Tian shouted at the same time with one accord. Neither of them clearly knew why Lu Ling was so calm, nor did they know what Lu Ling could count on.
But they detected the pink on Lu Ling’s cheeks. Somehow, they thought about the dusk five years ago, when Lu Ling looked exactly like she was now. An ominous feeling came into the minds of these two.
Lu Li shouted and rushed towards Lu Ling. Unfortunately, there was some distance between him and Lu Ling, and Di Han was already more than 3 feet closer to Lu Ling.
With the distance shortening between Di Han and Lu Ling, Lu Ling’s face became so much redder, like a coquettish fox, so much so that Di Han began to feel uncertain and nervous.
The shout of Di Huo and Di Tian had made Di Han hesitate, but Lu Ling was right in front of him, and Lu Li was rushing towards her too. If Di Han could not hurt Lu Ling now, he might be killed by Lu Li who was furiously charging.
“Crazy woman, who do you want to frighten?!”
Di Han cried out and continued charging towards Lu Ling. But before he could finish with his words, he was suddenly filled with terror and his eyes were squinted as he abruptly started retreating.
He saw Lu Ling lift one of her arms. There was a black dot shooting out of her sleeve. The black dot was moving so fast, getting larger and larger in Di Han’s eyes. There was a glow on the dot. Needless to say—it was something lethal!
No matter how fast he walked backwards, he would not be as fast as the black dot. He tried to block it with his saber but it was too late. The black dot had quickly enlarged on his pupils and got in between his eyebrows in an instant.
Di Han, who was walking backwards, stopped moving. He trembled at that spot and collapsed to the ground. There was a black bolt between Di Han’s eyebrows. Half of the bolt was buried inside his skull and its glow was glistening. Di Han had instantaneously died.
There was a total silence around except for some faint gasps. Everyone was staring at Di Han who had already stopped breathing. After they had seen his eyeballs that still showed terror and the black blood running out from the bolt, everyone had eventually felt fear and shock arose from the deepest of their souls.
It was the same for Lu Li!
He had already killed a tremendous amount of beasts, as well as Xuan Beasts, but never a human, not to mention inside the tribe. Lu Ling, a weak girl that they never even seen killed a chicken before, dared to kill a human in front of everyone today. How could that happen?
A young man gathered himself from the shock, shouted and rushed towards Di Han. He carried Di Han to the distance in a desperate effort to save him.
“Don’t waste your time. Di Han is already dead. On the bolt is the poison of the Underleaf Pearl. Haven’t you ever heard it? Once a human gets poisoned by the Underleaf Pearl, one would eventually go to the Underworld.”
A sound softly rose with absolutely no emotion. Lu Ling had spoken while her face was still pink, so pretty and charming like a delicate flower. It was so beautiful that people could not stand a sight of it.
At that moment, it was true that many people didn’t dare to look at her. She had just killed a person, but she still remained so calm after that. Was she still a human? This woman was absolutely crazy…
“Ah~ You crazy woman. You dared to kill my brother Han. You better get ready because I will tear you apart!”
The young man who was holding Di Han had turned crazy and charged towards Lu Ling like a beast running wild. Lu Li finally came to himself and quickly ran towards Lu Ling.
Lu Ling slowly lifted her hand and showed a small black mechanized crossbow. She coldly stared at the young man and said, “I have named this crossbow as the Death Seeking Crossbow. I spent three years making it. The speed of the bolt shooting out can match a hit by a warrior in the Spirit Sea Realm with full strength. There is toxic all over it. Anyone who dares to get within a 6.5 feet radius near me will surely die. If you don’t believe it… come and have a try!”
The young man paused and didn’t dare to move another step forward. Di Han was at the peak of the Xuan Wu Realm, but he was just at the early stage on his current realm. If he had rushed over, he couldn’t do anything and would eventually get killed.
“Three years, Underleaf Pearl!”
Lu Li began to remember something. Three years ago, Lu Ling indeed was toying with something. She spent one month in her spare time whittling. When Lu Li asked her, she just said she was having some fun. One year ago, she asked Lu Li to harvest some herbs which now turned out to be the Underleaf Pearl.
“Your sister, I, cannot cultivate the Xuan Energy, but I still have the ability to protect myself. Anyone who dares to cause us trouble would definitely regret being born in the first place.”
Lu Li once again remembered what Lu Ling said when he returned to the tribe to check on Lu Ling after he hurt Di Huo and the other two. Now, Lu Li could see that Lu Ling indeed have the capacity to protect herself. Anyone that was not in the Spirit Sea Realm or above would definitely die if they dared to get near her…
Yet, at that moment, Lu Li found Lu Ling so unfamiliar. She was nothing like a gentle and frail-looking sister. Even he didn’t have the courage to kill people, let alone remain so calm after that!
Right at that moment, screams filled with sorrow came from afar. Some elderlies came in strides with someone with them. They were tribal patriarchs staying behind. They were advanced in age, so they could not compete with young man in their abilities to fight, which was why they did not follow Di Ba to station outside of the Ice Abyss.
Di Han had died horribly. Undoubtedly, this group of people could not just sit there and let it happen in front of their eyes. Di Han was the grandson of one of the elderlies.
The elderlies rushed over. One of the elderlies who had silver hair and only one arm was about to express his madness to Lu Ling. He pointed at Lu Ling with his only arm and said, “What a diabolic gal you are! We came from the same tribe. How can you be so ruthless, so totally devoid of any consciences or heart? Heaven will not tolerate it! Heaven will not tolerate it!”
“Right! Bastards are bastards. Our tribe has been raising these two seeking nothing in return for years. They are so ungrateful souls. We should have seen it coming and feed them to beasts when they were still little.”
“Kill them and revenge for Di Han!”
Some of the elderlies were swearing nonstop. Some elderly women had even wanted to make their way here from the distance, but they were prohibited by other elderlies. There could be a huge fight going on at any moment now. A group of old women would only make it more chaotic.
Lu Li seriously looked to the front; even though these elderlies were not in very advanced realms, just in the mid-stage of the Xuan Wu Realm, but they had escaped from death for so many times. Three of them had earned quite a reputation in the tribe, so Lu Li did not have the courage to fight them.
Lu Ling didn’t pay any attention to the swearing elderlies; she just looked at Lu Li and said, “Today, you are going to step into the entry of Wu Dao. I will teach you the first lesson—when faced with an enemy, you must be heartless, cruel, and have no mercy.”
“Look at them!”
Lu Ling pointed at people in front of them and said, “You look at them and think about when they have ever treated us as people in the tribe… Even worse, when have they ever regarded us as humans? If it were not for our Sixth Granduncle, do you even think that we could make it to today?”
“For brothers and friends, you can help them at the cost of your own life. For relatives and loved ones, you can give up anything. For enemies, you must be ruthless. Once you make your move, you must see it through and wipe them out.”
“The road to Wu Dao is a road of killing. If you want to become a powerful warrior, to become an overlord of a city, of a realm, or even a Human Sovereign, you must climb your way up by stepping on countless corpses. A great achievement comes at the cost of many lives. That has always been the way how the history works. Do you see?”
“Men should kill, and kill with no mercy. When indestructible greatness rises, it rises from bleaching bones. Former times boast men of lofty spirit and loyalty, and promises are dear to their hearts. Revenge is done through killing, as life is nothing but petty things. Rulers and lords kill, and to kill is as natural as it comes!”
After Lu Ling had finished with her words, she lifted the crossbow and pointed towards Di Huo, Di Tian, and those elderlies, and said, “These men in front of you are all your enemies and deserve to die!”
“Men should kill!”
A slight trace of murderous look came into Lu Li’s eyes. He lifted his saber, but he was not so determined inside. This was to kill people, living people, not some beasts or Xuan Beasts.
Di Huo could not work up the courage to stare into Lu Ling’s eyes any longer. He turned his head over and cursed, but he didn’t dare to immediately start the fight.
“Ha, ha, crazy woman?”
A beautiful and sad smile crept up to the corners of her mouth. She turned her head and looked at Lu Li who was showing hesitation. “Dear brother, do you know why they have always been calling me crazy woman? Do you know how I became limp? Do you know why I spend three years building this Death Seaking Crossbow? These were all because Di Huo and Di Tian did something. Even if I were crazy, they made me one!”
Lu Li was shocked. That was five years ago when Lu Ling became limp. He was just ten years old back then. Lu Ling had gone to the mountain to harvest herbs by herself for five or six days. He was so worried that he searched for her all over the mountain. It was several days later when Lu Ling crawled back while dragging a broken leg.
Lu Ling did not say too much back then and just said that she had broken her legs when she was trying to harvest herbs. Lu Li did not see that this had something to do with Di Huo and Di Tian.
Lu Ling looked at Di Huo and Di Tian who had lowered their heads and didn’t dare to look at her. Lu Ling softly said, “Five years ago, I had gone to harvest herbs in the mountains. These two bastards tried to rape me. If I had not jumped off from the cliff, I would have lost my virginity. Lu Li… you cannot imagine how perverted they were. I jumped off from the cliff, I broke my legs, and they were still after me. If I had not cut off five pieces of flesh off my thigh and ate them piece by piece raw to scare them away, I might not have been able to make it back…”
Di Huo suddenly bent over to throw up. Many of the young men’s expressions had changed and an urge of throwing up came to them.
Ate her own thigh flesh! She was surely a crazy woman!
Di Tian also had a disgusted expressions on his face. Neither him nor Di Huo could forget what happened at that dusk five years ago. Lu Ling cut the flesh while smiling; she chewed them and swallowed them down piece by piece. An intoxicating smile was hanging on her lips that had blood dripping from them.
That picture gave five whole years of nightmare to Di Tian!
