Melodramatic events were not unusual in big families. Fall-out between siblings that could lead to slaughters did happen from time to time. Sometimes, parents and children would become enemies as well.
Lu Li was now an enemy of the Lu Family. He and Lu Suan were absolutely irreconcilable. Given the chance, Lu Li would definitely end Lu Suan’s life.
However…that was feud between cousins. What was more, growing up in the Northern Desert, Lu Li shared no emotional connection to Lu Suan. Between Lu Suan and Lu Ni, even the two shared hatred, they wouldn’t go so far as to implicate life and death. Besides, Lu Li had threatened Lu Suan’s status, which resulted in Lu Suan plotting against Lu Li and had him kicked out of the Lu Family. Otherwise, Lu Suan wouldn’t do such a thing.
Today, he learned a beautiful young lady wanted him to kill her own half-brother? It was the first time Lu Li had heard something so outrageous.
Lu Li now understood why Leng Wuxin outsourced him for the job.
Ji Mengtian and Lu Suan had asked Recluse Solar Dragon, instead of powerful warriors of their own families, to kill Lu Li. It was the same thing.
Lu Li was from another universe. If he had killed Leng Wuxin’s brother secretly, Leng Family would kill Lu Li in a fit of rage rather than suspect one of their own.
Upon second thought, Lu Li found some flaws in the plan. He was too weak. If Leng Wuxin didn’t take him, how could he get to the Leng Family? How would he kill a person without going into the Leng Family? On the other hand, if he was brought there by Leng Wuxin, Leng Family definitely would realize something was going on.
Lu Li turned to Leng Wuxin with his question. She put forward her plan without any conservation, “Listen up. We will split up once we are at the fifth level, the Prison of Gold. I will give you a map and something to protect you from the Beasts of Primordial Chaos. Then, you will have to find the Central Imperial Universe, the universe my family is at. You will find the Leng Family and join the Leng Family. My guys will assist you secretly as long as you can make it to the Leng Family.”
“I will give you some treasures in a bit. You are somewhat talented. More importantly—your Bloodline is good. My family will for sure want you to join the External Clan. You will have to cultivate with great efforts after you join. I will create opportunity for you to know my little brother.”
“He is a fan of getting to know young talents. You will please him when you suck up to him. Later, you will find a chance to hang out with him or become his partner in training. By then…you will find yourself a chance to kill him.”
“I don’t care how you end his life as long as you do. I have plans for afterwards for you to escape. I will secretly plant a person at the Purgatory of Primordial Chaos to wait for you and escort you back.”
Leng Wuxin laid out her complete plan, which seemed to be perfect. That being said, Lu Li found it flawed.
To put Leng Wuxin’s words simply, it meant—Lu Li would have to sneak into the Central Imperial Universe by himself and then join the Leng Family, relying on his talent. He would then try to get to her brother, gain his trust and then kill him.
Lu Li casually glanced to her chest, wondering if all sexy women were thickheaded.
He could tell from her account that Leng Family was very powerful at the Central Imperial Universe. Leng Family might be one of the forces governing the continents, like the Royal Families of the Central Plains.
A family like this came with strict or even harsh rules. Lu Li would be reaching for the moon to think that an unidentified person like him could join the Leng Family, let alone getting in contact with Leng Wuxin’s brother.
If, by some luck…
It all went well and Lu Li could get to know Leng Wuxin’s brother and then found a chance to finish the task. But could Lu Li kill a young talent that was better than any Human Sovereign Realm counterparts and was protected by many treasures?
Leng Wuxin was waiting for his answer so Lu Li stated his concerns in a subtle way. He didn’t look for the underlying reason for her to seek her own brother’s doom. He didn’t want to gossip about the feud within a wealthy family.
Hearing Lu Li’s questions, Leng Wuxin frowned, which made Lu Li feel worse.
These two questions never crossed her mind. Or, she had never given the plan a careful thought. She just had a sparkle of hope…and she wished him to be like a moth flying into the flames.
Leng Wuxin deliberated about it for an hour before she said, “For the first thing, it is easy. There are many old freaks cultivating in the Prison of Gold. They would go to the Central Imperial Universe often and sometimes they will accept young talents as apprentices. You can pretend to be some old freaks’ apprentice and claim that you were brought to the Prison of Gold since you were young. Later, I will go through some records to find a freak that hasn’t showed his face for 1000 years. You can say that your mentor has passed away, which will make it a cold case.”
Leng Wuxin had come up with an okay excuse after racking her brain for an hour. At least, the Leng Family would be handed a dead lead. That being said, Leng Family would not be convinced by him so easily.
“As for your second concern!”
Leng Wuxin’s expressions grew colder as she continued, “I don’t care what kind methods you use, the bottom line is…if you don’t kill my brother, you will have to die. You will have to think about it and find a way. If you need to rely on me, then why do I need you for?”
Leng Wuxin was being unreasonable. After some consideration, Lu Li sighed and posed another question, “Young Lady Leng, I have another question. Aren’t you afraid that I will go to your brother or your father to rat you out?”
According to her plan, Leng Wuxin and Lu Li were about to part ways. What if Lu Li found someone to make public of her plan? What if at the arrival of the Leng Family, he would notify them about her plan?
Leng Wuxin grinned and said casually, “I don’t think that you are so stupid. You can…check your bone marrow.”
“My bone marrow?”
Lu Li used psychic power to check his bone marrow. His findings stunned him. There was a trace of strange energy among his bone marrows. Leng Wuxin had poisoned him before he knew it.
“This is one wicked ancient poison!”
Leng Wuxin leaned forward a little, put her pretty and yet cold face in front of his and whispered, “You must take the antidote every six months. Without the antidote, you will rot and you will die. I am the only one of the Leng Family possessing this poison. No more than three people have possession of it of the entire Central Imperial Universe!”
Leng Wuxin continued, “Either you find a way to kill my brother or you commit suicide now, which will save your pain. This mission seems formidable and impossible. However, I will provide you with necessary Mystical Materials so that you can make fast progress. Maybe after several decades, you will become my brother’s right-hand man and be capable enough to end his life.”
Gazing into Leng Wuxin’s blood streaks-filled eyes and the ice in there, Lu Li shuddered.
How much hatred was there that a young girl was willing to devote decades of her time to kill her own brother?
Lu Li had no other way to go other than going down the road with this crazy person. The only thing he felt lucky about was that…there was ample time and he could have many Mystical Materials to facilitate his cultivation?
He sighed. In the end, he could not help but ask, “What has your brother done that you must kill him?”
The answer he received was a fast moving fist. He was smashed away, hit against the petal and fell onto the floor…
