Di Ba had taken all the adult warriors in the tribe with him, even some warriors in their fifties. After all, the more people went to the Ice Abyss, the more bonus they would get. Di Ba thought that there was nothing dangerous about them stationed outside the Ice Abyss.
Hence, all those that were left in the tribe were the aged, weak, women and handicapped. The only ones with strong combat capacity were the one-armed old man and the rest of the elders, plus some young guys who came back with Di Huo, Di Tian, and Di Han.
At present, Di Huo was the most powerful warrior, but he still ran away. Di Han was shot to death by Lu Ling, and Di Tian had been decapitated. There was a wound on one-armed old man’s chest deep enough to see his bones. This was okay at a younger age, but given that one-armed old man had surpassed the age of 60, the wound was fatal.
As for the other three elders, one was badly injured, one got his arm broken off, and the last one was completely freaked out. As for the more than a dozen young men including Di Lu, they didn’t dare to move a single bit. Lu Ling and Lu Li had astonished and stunned all warriors in the tribe.
Many old women, some old maid servants, and young girls in the distance were all the more dumbfounded. They were just normal women with no combat capacity, no guts, so many of them could not even bear the sight of it all. Only some old maid servants burst into rage of tears. Some bigger children were terrified and they ran back home.
With a saber dripping blood in one hand, and his sister’s arm in the other, Lu Li walked forward step by step.
Lu Ling was smiling. Lu Li took one of his sister’s arms in his, and in her sleeve, she had the Death Seeking Crossbow ready to launch at all times. With her walking stick in her other hand, she moved forward with a limp.
“Why are you crying?!”
The one-armed old man stood up with much effort while enduring the sharp pain in his chest and shouted to those old maid servants. Silence instantly fell, to the degree that gradually, a deadly stillness spread out. Even the sound of a needle falling to the ground could be heard. The only sound was the clop-clop sound accompanying Lu Li and Lu Ling’s moving forward… and the sound of blood dripping from Lu Li’s saber.
Soon enough, Lu Li had walked to the front of the one-armed old man. The rest of the elders had retreated here, not far behind the one-armed old man with swords in their hands. Lu Li stopped, pointing his saber at the one-armed old man and said, “Old dog, will you get out of the way or not?”
“What if I don’t?”
The one-armed old man was a bad ass. He angrily stared at Lu Ling with his bulging eyes bursting with anger. He was not willing to submit to defeat. If it were not for the fact that he was poisoned with the Purple Erosion Grass, how could Lu Li, a punk that couldn’t even cultivate the Xuan Energy, hurt him?
Lu Li and Lu Ling had slaughtered their way through the tribe, ensanguining the Di Long tribe. If he were to let the pair of siblings to leave so easily, the one-armed old man would feel disgraced, and his authority and dignity accumulated during all these years in the tribe would be all wasted.
He was the uncle of Di Ba. Without Di Ba in the Tribe, he had become the leader. If he were to back off, Di Han and Di Tian would have died in vain!
“If you don’t, then go to hell!”
Lu Li angrily shouted; he let go of Lu Ling’s hand and dashed forward like a leopard. He had been seized by a killing frenzy. Now that he had already killed Di Tian, he would not mind killing some more.
Lu Ling said the one-armed old man was the murderer of their maternal grandfather. Disregarding whether that was real or not, Lu Ling had almost get raped and had her leg broken. When she came back to seek justice from the one-armed old man, he just wished her away with ten Golden Leaves. Just this was already unbearable to Lu Li.
What Di Huo and the rest did was clearly authorized by the elders. Since the one-armed old man tried to kill him, and now he was standing in their way, sure enough, he had made himself an enemy.
Lu Ling had said, when faced with an enemy, one must be ruthless and cruel with absolutely no mercy!
That was all on Lu Li’s mind—be merciless. He launched forward in an instant. Rays of glaring light morphed out of the saber. He chopped at the one-armed old man with great strength.
With a muffled and abrupt piercing sound, the one-armed old man was harmed. How could he have defended it, now with all of his Xuan Energy messed up? The one-armed old man’s sword was knocked away, and he himself was driven backwards.
Lu Li’s eyes were as cold as if he were a beast. He quickly pursued the one-armed old man and held his saber up high. He could be chopped down at any minute now. Staring at the one-armed old man, Lu Li cried out in a rage, “Will you make way or not?!”
The one-armed old man sure was a ruthless character. He screamed while clenching his teeth, “No, little bastard, if you have guts, then kill me! Di Ba has become the External Clan Patriarch of the Zhao Family. When he comes back, he will tear you into pieces and send you in the wild to rot!”
“Go to hell—”
With a loud scream, Lu Li swung his saber downwards. Just one move, Lu Li had smashed the one-armed old man away for nearly 40 feet. The one-armed old man’s blood gushed out of his chest; clearly, he would not make it with his chest and stomach cut open.
“Fourth Big Brother!”
Crying out in alarm, the rest of the elders, and those nearby the stone house came forward and surrounded the one-armed old man. Lu Li looked back at Lu Ling, and the latter caught up quickly.
Lu Li went on one step at a time, carrying the blood-dripping saber. Standing about 10 feet in front of the corpse of the one-armed old man, Lu Li stopped yet again. He pointed to the elders with his saber. “You are all advanced in age now, with not much time left on earth. I don’t want to kill more today. If you don’t want to die, then get out of my way!”
The five or six elders turned their heads back and looked at Lu Li. Hatred and spite filled their eyes, but none of them dared to talk, not to mention take some actions.
“I will take 10 steps now. If you don’t move, then don’t blame me for being heartless!”
Lu Li walked, step by step. His murderous look became even more serious. By the fifth step, finally someone gave in with fear. One of the elders took the lead and stepped aside.
When one had stepped aside, the rest quickly followed suit. Nobody wanted to die. Right now, no one could compete with Lu Li anymore. They had to wait for Di Ba to come back to seek revenge on their behalf.
But one of the elders did not step aside. That was the one that almost had his arm cut off by Lu Li. He was the cousin of the one-armed old man. The one-armed old man being killed filled his eyes with anger. Instead of moving to the side, he roared and rushed towards Lu Li.
The rest of the elders shouted in surprise. Lu Li ran towards him with fury shown in his eyes. He held up high his saber and cut it down. How could an injured elder stand such a blow with more than 11,000 pounds of strength?
Both the elder and his saber were sent airborne. Half of his body was heavily injured with blood all over. One more was killed.
Lu Li wielded his saber and coldly looked at the elders nearby. At that moment, he had transformed into a killing demon. Who else dared to stand in his way would be killed with no questions asked.
It was silent all around. Nobody dared to step up now. Some of the young men’s legs were even trembling because of fear. When they looked into Lu Li’s eyes, they found them to be more horrifying than devils and ghosts.
Lu Li easily managed to walk towards the outside of the front gate of the tribe with Lu Ling . As soon as they set foot outside of the gate, they heard swearing coming from behind them.
“Lu Li, you have lost your mind. You will die a horrible death!”
“You two bastards, when the chief comes back, he will hunt you down and tear you into pieces no matter where you go.”
“Yes, send someone for the chief now. These two unpardonably vicious souls must be torn into pieces…”
“The two should die a thousand times…”
Bouts of swearing came, together with crying of some elder maiden servants. Lu Li frowned and stopped. He took a look back but said nothing.
Instead, Lu Ling glanced over the crowd and coldly said, “We are heading towards the Wu Ling County. You can let Di Ba to find us in Wu Ling County to get your revenge. We two have killed people here today. If someone from your tribe can kill us, good for you. We will not complain.”
“Also… we will look into the particulars of the death of my maternal grandfather. If it really had something to do with the tribe, all involved, I swear, I will not spare any life. One final note. Take good care of our Sixth Granduncle. Anyone who dares to trouble him because of what we did, as long as we are still breathing, we will come back and kill that person and his entire family!”
With these said Lu Ling turned back and walked forward with the walking stick in her hands. Lu Li quickly caught up with her and helped her leave. Again, people felt chills ran down their bodies.
Before, they could have regarded what Lu Ling said as a joke. Yet from that day on, no one dared to underestimate the girl again, or the punk Lu Li that could not even cultivate Xuan Energy.
One of the elders shed tears as he watched Lu Li and Lu Ling leave. He mumbled in regret, “Today’s disaster is bound to happen. We should not have treated these two like we did. Nor should we do the wrong things back. The children of Lu Ren Huang , that Human Sovereign, how can they be losers.”
“Eleventh Brother, what are you talking about?”
The other elder scolded him, “These two bastards are ungrateful souls! If it were up to me, we should have killed them in the old days. Then we would not find ourselves in this kind of trouble today. Now we must inform the chief as soon as possible to hunt them down. We cannot resort to force in the Wu Ling County. Once they are in, it will be too much trouble.”
“What’s to be afraid of?”
Another elder snorted. “Sure, forces cannot be used inside the Wu Ling County which is a rule set by the Liu Family. But today is not like the old days. Liu Family’s power and strength have suffered a lot because of the turbulence in their family. The Zhao Family now is a match for Liu Family. Di Ba is the External Clan Patriarch of the Zhao Family. It should be just like a piece of cake for him to kill these two?”
One of the elders nodded and then shouted to Di Lu and others, “What are you bastards doing here? Now, go and inform the chief. Ask him to send someone to kill these two bastards.”
Di Lu rushed out with two other people. They ran towards the Ice Abyss at the top of their speed and quickly vanished into the north.
 Ren Huang (人皇) means Human Sovereign. Lu Li and Lu Ling’s father’s name is Lu Ren Huang.
