“Bloodline of the Fourth Rank? Lords, it…”
Liu Yi paid no heed to Lu Li. She pointed at the kid and looked to the three elders of the temple. One of the elders walked towards the kid and said to him in a low voice, “Kid, do you feel there is more information in your mind now? Think about it. That is the Bloodline Skill. Now tell me, what Skill that is!”
Lu Li’s pupils contracted and he trembled. He sensed there was some strange information in his head. He was just so concentrated on the Bloodline Awakening, so he did not take notice of it. Now, he promptly started to try to figure out the additional information.
The kid thought about it and looked up. “It seems to be… Roaring Flames?”
Liu Yi and Patriarch Hong’s expressions quickly changed upon hearing the kid’s words. The Family Patriarch of the Liu Family, i.e., Liu Yi’s grandfather, had the Bloodline Skill of “Roaring Flames”. So, it was certain that the Bloodline awakened by the kid was indeed of the Fourth Rank.
The elders of the temple nodded. “It is the Fourth-rank Bloodline. I think there is something wrong with the altar which caused it to tremble so badly just now.”
The other two elders nodded along. Roaring Flames was a Fourth-rank Bloodline Skill. It corresponded with the green mark on the kid’s neck. Therefore, something must be wrong with the altar.
Lu Li, who was standing there, suddenly gasped. Shock was written all over his face. There was something on his mind. After consideration, he realized it was a Bloodline Skill—Burning Blood!
As such, why was there no Bloodline mark on his neck now that he had the Bloodline Skill? Also, what Rank was this Burning Blood Skill of? Which Rank of the Bloodline did he awaken?
Everyone was attracted by Lu Li’s surprise and they all looked at him. Liu Yi frowned, asking, “Lu Li, what is it?”
Lu Li wanted to tell them about him possessing the Bloodline Skill and ask the elders about the strange things that happened to him.
But on second thoughts…
His awakening was not normal. Once he told them about it, the stuff about the animal tooth pendant would be exposed. What if people coveted it? Plus, there was no mark of Bloodline on his neck. Could he be studied like a lab rat by the people of the temple?
Soon, he made up his mind. He started at the kid of the Liu Family and said, “How can it be Bloodline of the Fourth Rank? Just now, I could feel the blood boiling in the kid’s body. The altar shook for several times.”
On speaking of this, Liu Yi and Patriarch Hong once again felt upset. Everyone withdrew their attention from Lu Li to the kid and wanted to see if they were mistaken.
It was still a green mark no matter how hard they looked. Liu Yi had to extend her appreciation to the three temple elders and leave with the family. Even though it was not a Bloodline of the Sixth or Seventh Rank, a Fourth-rank Bloodline was not bad. Under adequate training, the kid could make another powerful warrior in the Liu Family.
Outside on the plaza, there were some crowds. All of the people were curious and surprised. When the kid of the Zhao Family awakened his Bloodline, glaring light came out on the outside of the temple. When it was the turn for the Liu Family children and Lu Li, the light was even brighter, which meant that altogether, two children had succeeded in awakening a powerful Bloodline.
People saw the cyan mark on the Zhao Family child’s neck. People almost went into a commotion on the plaza seeing that a Fifth-rank Bloodline was awakened. But people sighed with pity when the kid of the Liu Family came out. How could he only have a Bloodline of the Fourth-rank? Just now, the glare of the temple was so strong that it was hard for people to keep their eyes open.
Nevertheless, two Bloodline Warriors awakened in the Wu Ling County this time. This was worth of celebration. The plaza was bustling with noise and excitement. People were talking about it non-stop.
Liu Yi and the other warriors guarded the kid who had his Bloodline awakened to go back to the Liu Family. Lu Li was still pondering about his own weird situation. He was not in the mood to mind the people on the square, so he headed towards the Liu Family in silence.
What Lu Li did not know was that someone in the crowd snorted at him in anger. If Lu Li had seen this man, he would be filled with murderous intent; it was nobody else but Di Huo—the oldest son of Di Ba.
Di Huo, to other’s surprise, also joined the Zhao Family. He was in the cyan armor of the Zhao Family. Several other young men were standing next to him, also in the same kind of armor.
“Di Huo, what’s up?”
A handsome young man asked Di Huo with doubt after Lu Li was in the distance. Di Huo withdrew his eyesight and replied obediently to the young man, “Young Master Rui, that was Lu Li. He put on a killing spree in my tribe. If it were not for the fact that I escaped in time, I could not be able to serve at your side now.”
“Oh? That was him!”
Coldness climbed onto the corner of the young man’s mouth. He patted Di Huo’s shoulder and continued, “Di Huo, don’t worry. He is just the Guest Warrior of the Liu Family. Even if he was killed, the Liu Family wouldn’t say anything. Now… you go back and send someone to keep tabs on him. As soon as he is out of the county, I will bring someone to kill him for your benefit.”
“Thank you so much Young Master Rui!”
Di Huo showed his gratitude in joy. This Young Master Rui was the No. 1 young master of the Zhao Family; he was also the talent with the most abnormal constitutions in the Wu Ling County. He was able to make it to the Spirit Sea Realm at the age of 21. As long as he made his moves, Lu Li had no escape from death.
“Let’s go now. Liu Family only has a Bloodline of the Fourth Rank awakened. There is nothing to see.”
Master Rui waved his hand and led a group of young men run towards the Zhao Family happily. This time, a Bloodline of the Fifth Rank was awakened in the Zhao Family. Zhao Family would enjoy elevated status accompanying that. It could be the change of the order in the Wu Ling County.
After they were back inside the Liu Family Compound, Liu Yi brought the kid to the backyard in a hurry. Lu Li went back to the Guest Clan with doubt all along.
There was a young lady standing at the gate of the Guest Clan on her walking stick and with her faced covered with a veil. Lu Li called her after he saw her. He stood there, looking guilty.
Lu Ling kept staring at Lu Li’s neck. Her beautiful eyes dimmed when she took several looks. The walking stick in her hand fell. She trembled all over and mumbled in disbelief, “How can you fail to awaken your Bloodline? How is it possible? No, it’s not possible…”
Lu Li was scared when he saw Lu Ling trembling and shaking as if she was about to fall to the ground. He instantly went over to hold her. Lu Ling stared at Lu Li’s neck for a while and asked in doubt, “Lu Li, you failed to awaken your Bloodline?”
“I… don’t’ know!” Lu Li did not know how to explain this. He thought about it and said, “Sis, let’s go in and talk about it.”
There was some joy in Lu Ling’s eyes now. She picked up her walking stick and went into their own yard with the help of Lu Li. Lu Li closed the door as soon as they were inside and explained everything that went on in the temple to Lu Ling.
“Animal tooth? You were disturbed by the animal tooth pendant during the Bloodline Awakening?”
On learning about this, Lu Ling was somewhat angry. She sighed in bitterness. “If there was nothing amiss, you would have been able to awaken the King Kong Bloodline of the Eight Rank and to get a Bloodline Skill of the Eighth Rank—Mystical Armor. Once you release this Skill, no one in the entire Wu Ling County can break through your armor of defense. This time, the animal tooth pendant really did you injustice!”
“Bloodline of the Eighth Rank? Bloodline Skill Mystical Armor?”
Lu Li’s eyes were wide open in shock. The highest level of Bloodline was the Ninth Rank. If he were to awaken Bloodline of the Eighth Rank, maybe the three Fifth-rank Royal Families on the Northern Desert would be begging him to join their families.
“Sis, how can you be so sure?” Lu Li once again voiced his doubt.
Lu Ling paused for a bit and shed some light for Lu Li. “Because we are the direct offspring of the Lu Family. Lu Family is one of the ten most powerful Bloodline Families of the entire Central Plains. Basically, any direct male offspring of the Lu Family are able to awaken the King Kong Bloodline and possess the Mystical Armor Skill. The King Kong Bloodline is the strongest defensive Bloodline of Central Plains. Our father awakened the King Kong Bloodline. When he released his Bloodline Skill, he could sweep away warriors of the Human Sovereign Realm!”
It was like a bolt of lightning that struck inside Lu Li’s head. He trembled and shook. His father, Lu Ren Huang, was a Powerhouse of the Human Sovereign Realm, the Sovereign of Humans.
