It was true that the bead’s speed was accelerated again. Now, its speed was comparable to that of a Human Sovereign Realm warrior.
Every time Lu Li dissolved a part of the Wicked Bead’s seal, the bead’s speed would increase. This had made Lu Li extremely pleased and excited recently for it had let him see hope of survival and returning to his home.
A speed of the Human Sovereign Realm was fast. Of course, it was still slow compared to the five Semi-God Realm warriors. That being said, Lu Li felt he was not even half way through the first layer of seal!
How fast the bead could get when the entire seal was dissolved? It might not be as fast as a real immortal, but chances of it moving faster than the Semi-God Realm warriors, especially the ones chasing after Lu Li, could be great!
Lu Li had been feeling tired recently. It had been some time since he last slept. Even so, he didn’t mind. He kept on cultivating Xuan Energy and pouring it in, including the Xuan Energy he stored in his Spirit Sea.
In the beginning, it would take him at least over a month to arrive at the Feng Dynasty. The speed had since improved greatly. Lu Li should be reaching the Feng Dynasty in half a month, at most.
The shortening time was also noticed by the five. Once they reach the border of the Feng Dynasty, things could become difficult. By then, the Feng Dynasty would have the perfect reason to send out troops. Families of the Central Imperial Universe would fly into a panic. They might even join up to deal with the five.
What was more, they were still worried about Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian’s intention. Jun Hongye was not convinced that the two had gone back. They must be hiding in a corner, waiting for the perfect chance. When the time came, Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian would show their intentions and tear all of them apart.
Those from the Mage Imperial Universe were regarded as insane for a reason. To seek revenge, they could go on for years, even decades, and would not stop until death had come.
“We must crack the bead before we arrive at the Feng Dynasty.”
Jun Hongye shouted. His voice was coarse. Too many had died, and all they gained was some Mystical Materials and Quasi Relics from the Leng Family. The families joined in the mission had suffered a huge loss. If they were to leave like this, the families would become jokes among the universes. Those warriors were not young anymore. In a few hundred years, they might pass away. By then, how should they face their ancestors in the underworld?
They kept chasing after Lu Li. Everywhere they passed through, mountains were leveled to the ground, rivers were cut off, plains became fragmented, forests were destroyed, and the entire place was disintegrated.
Then, 10 days passed.
The bead showed no change, and it was going to leave the border of the Leng Dynasty. Five Semi-God Realm warriors were down in the dumps. Even their actions had become weaker.
Today, the bead glowed again and… increased its speed!
The five Semi-God Realm warriors looked as the bead vanished into the distance in a blur. Nothing was more lamentable than a dead heart. Apart from Jun Hongye, the other four had stopped chasing the bead. They felt the bead was like a mountain with a peak they could not see and could never ascend to.
Jun Hongye turned around and shouted, “What are you doing there? Why aren’t you moving? We will lose him before long.”
The other Semi-God Realm warrior of the Jun Family said bitterly, “Family Patriarch, do we… have a chance of cracking the bead?”
The other warriors also looked at Jun Hongye anxiously, especially those from the Ren Family and the Li Family. The bead would not be given to the two families even after it was cracked. They felt their efforts were wasted. Once they went into the Feng Dynasty, there was a good chance that they would die in battle.
“I don’t care if we can, but we must not stop!”
Jun Hongye’s eyes reddened as he shouted, “Think about this. If those from the Central Imperial Universe, or Wu Guangde and Chen Tianxian get the bead first, what will happen to us? What will happen to our families? So… I know we may not break it anytime soon, but we must keep going until we get the bead or until every single one of us is dead!”
Jun Hongye’s words made great sense. The other four looked at each other, frustrated. Jun Hongye was right. Either they got the bead or saw their families doomed for eternity. They had no more freedom of choice. They might either get the bead or perish in battle…
“I swear in the name of Emperor Heaven Reverse!”
Jun Hongye said solemnly, “If you can help me get the Wicked Bead, I will make sure that your three families will enjoy glory for a millions years. We will never turn back on you until the day the Jun Family is no more!”
Semi-God Realm warriors of the Li Family and the Ren Family felt reassured. The Hao Family Semi-God Realm warrior was not as convinced, but now was not a good time to bring his worried up. They wasted no more time. They all sped to maximum and went after the Wicked Bead.
It had accelerated again. As of this moment, its speed had reached the Earth Immortal Realm, very terrifying. Since the Semi-God Realm warriors had wasted some time, it took them the time for two incense sticks to burn to catch up.
Lu Li had thought that they had given up. He pouted when he saw the five coming again. But he was less worried now. There was enough energy left in the bead, enough to sustain for half a year under attack.
Since the Wicked Bead was as fast as an Earth Immortal Realm warrior now, another elevation and its speed would reach the Semi-God Realm. The Feng Dynasty was not far away. Lu Li believed that in no case would the Feng Family warriors allow the five Semi-God Realm warriors blast away in their territory…
Lu Li had little Xuan Energy left in his Spirit Sea so he stopped mobilizing from it. In three days at most, the Wicked Bead would arrive at the Feng Dynasty.
As Lu Li had expected!
Three days later, Lu Li went pass a city. In the city, he could no longer see the flags of the Leng Dynasty. Instead, there were flags with patterns of six-clawed golden pythons on them. He was now in the Feng Dynasty.
“Let us have some fun!”
Lu Li made up his mind. Instead of flying in a straight line, the Wicked Bead began to move to the sides so that the Semi-God Realm warriors would have to chase it everywhere and make random attacks.
“Some scouts over there. Hmm, how dare they come so close to look?”
Lu Li used psychic power and noticed some scouts hiding in a mountain. They must be from the Feng Dynasty. He steered the Wicked Bead that way, and the five Semi-God Realm warriors followed him closed. It was too late for the scouts to run away now. They were blasted into dust instantly.
While Lu Li would try his best not to implicate civilians, he had no sense of guilt when it was the warriors that died. The scouts should have prepared for death for checking at such close quarters. What was more, he was not the one killing them.
“I think the City of Feng is at the north of the Feng Dynasty?”
Lu Li remembered the map of Central Imperial Universe he once read. A cold smile climbed to his face. He believed that if he lured the five Semi-God Realm warriors to the City of Feng and they made a mess in the city, Feng Family warriors would definitely came out.
Lu Li flew the Wicked Bead toward the City of Feng. He must create a battle between the Semi-God Realm warriors to find a chance to get away or else it was merely a matter of time before his bead was broken down.
He kept flying. Lu Li was not concerned that some warriors along the way lost their lives. If they were bold enough to come and enjoy the show, they must be ready for death at any moment. This was not an average show for people to see.
The Wicked Bead was fast. Those pursuers kept attacking it. Usually, by the time they noticed someone ahead, they had already taken actions. Those scouts and warriors were not powerful, so they could not run away…
“That punk is trying to provoking a war between us and the Feng Dynasty.”
Jun Family Semi-God Realm warrior said to Jun Hongye with worry. The latter sighed and said, “By entering here, we have already challenged the Feng Family. If Feng Family was is not courageous enough to fight with us, then they would send out troops even if we massacred several cities, let alone these few people. So, the fate will decide.”
The other three Semi-God Realm warriors looked at each other in frustration. Maybe, this time, all of them would be ruined by a… Noble Lord Realm warrior!
