Lu Li quickly forgot about the Ice Abyss business. Just as Lu Ling told him, with countless powerful warriors from the Super Families present, how badly could things go?
Even if something erroneous were bound to happen, there were always big potatoes to protect them. Over the entire Wu Ling County, there were powerful families besides the third-ranked Liu Family. Moreover, there were several second-ranked families and chiefs from different tribes and warriors to count on. Additionally, there was quite a number of the latter in the Wu Ling County.
Lu Li went to the Cutting Blade Ridge to continue with his coffin carrying business. It was strange that Liu Wu didn’t appear; instead, there were so many strong escorts. Lady Yi herself led the escorts to patrol.
Lady Yi promised an award after all the Ancient Coffins were carried, therefore, everyone was now eager to pull the coffins, and they all persistently hastened their steps.
Lu Li now possessed a strength of more than 7700 pounds, so it was utterly easy for him to carry a coffin of only 3300 pounds in weight, despite of the prerequisite that the coffin would not fall down. Lu Li ran at his top speed, and he had already finished with two coffins by the afternoon.
“Tonight, I will consume two Body Refinement Pellets so I could carry three coffins tomorrow!”
Before, others would catch up to Lu Li and go past him, but now, it was the other way around. Apart from some old men in the peak of the Xuan Wu Realm, others could not even finish two coffins. Lu Li shockingly now had a massive strength. Warriors of the middle-stage of the Xuan Wu Realm could not even compete with Lu Li, let alone those in the early stages.
Lu Li quickly gained a massive amount of strength that amazed most of the older Coffin Carriers and the Liu Family escorts. However, the rest of the coffin carrying old men always asked for the Mysterious Deity Pellet. They never thought about asking for the Body Refinement Pellet. For all the warriors, the most important thing had always been about the Xuan Energy Cultivation; brute alone force would amount to nothing.
Lu Li gained another 550 or 660 pounds of strength when he returned that night to consume two Body Refinement Pellets. The next day, Lu Li ran rapidly that he was like a horse carriage and numerous old men were left behind.
Lu Li had finished carrying three coffins in one day! Among all of the coffin carriers, only the three old men in the peak of the Mysterious Wu Realm could carry three coffins.
A lot of old men secretly pouted their mouth as they saw several coffins were left. If Lu Li were to consistently work like this, they would not earn any award.
“The efficacy of the Body Refinement Pellet is getting weaker.”
Lu Li took and consumed three Body Refinement Pellets in a single night, yet he only gained 770 to 880 pounds of strength. Lu Li was bit upset. At first, he gained a strength of 550 to 660 pounds when he cultivated one Body Refinement Pellet.
That being said, Lu Li now had a power of more than 9000 pounds, so 11,000 pound was just around the corner.
Lu Li was getting more and more excited. He was ready to pull four coffins after he got up in the morning; he was planning to consume four Body Refinement Pellets at the same time and see how much strength he could gain.
Lu Li thought to himself; he needed three days at most and then he could get enough Body Refinement Pellets to increase his strength up to 11,000 pounds. After that, he could go to the Wu Ling County to awaken his bloodline.
They were the strongest among the Warriors. Every Bloodline Warrior would be favored and recruited by the Super Families. On top of that, he could cultivate Xuan Energy once he awakened his bloodline; after which, Super Families would fight to recruit him.
“I could finally get my sister out of the Di Long Tribe and she would be free from all these bullies!”
On the thought of this, Lu Li’s heart passionately pounded as he became absolutely excited. He hurriedly went outside, carrying the jute bag on his back. He wildly run after he left the tribe.
“What? Someone is here!”
About one mile after Lu Li left the tribe and just as he was about to go into the mountains, he heard some rushing footsteps in the jungle ahead of him. Lu Li instantly slowed down and stood on the side to let them pass first.
The three people came running and suddenly stopped after they went over a corner. When they looked at Lu Li, there was a mocking smile on their faces.
Di Hu, Di Gu, and Di Ping!
Enemies were indeed bound to meet on a narrow road. Weren’t the three men delivering food and herbs to the people of the Di Long Tribe outside of the Ice Abyss? How could Lu Li run into them so early?
Lu Li secretly complained about his bad luck. Since he was a child, these three people had been picking on him and hurting him severely by punching him on dozens of occasions. They were the three people Lu Li would like to see the least in the tribe.
It was just after dawn, so it seemed like they had been rushing back from the Ice Abyss overnight. That should be why he had encountered them here.
Over there, Di Hu had already approached Lu Li with others following. He venomously glanced at Lu Li and said, “Yo, we didn’t expect to see you here. What are you doing so early in the morning, you little bastard?”
Lu Li didn’t want any trouble and wanted to leave so he could return on carrying the coffins. Therefore, he sucked it down and said nothing.
Di Gu, who was standing next to Di Hu, said, “What else would he do aside from carrying coffins? Hum, this time, several people of our tribe were beaten by Xuan Beasts and suffered from bad luck. It must have been because this kid goes and carries coffins. It has influenced the luck of our tribe.”
Di Ping’s eyes became red on discussing this subject as he bitterly said, “Yes, my sixth uncle got his hand cut off. It must have been because this guy was carrying coffins.”
Lu Li said nothing but had a sullen face. Di Hu felt bored, and he was feeling sleepy since he had been hurrying on with his journey all night long. He waved his hand and said, “Let’s go, leave. Don’t pay attention to this god of plague. He will be the reason for his sister’s death one day. But… that crazy b*tch sure has a pretty face. If I could bed her before her death, it would be absolutely nice.”
It was okay to insult him, but someone insulting his sister was his most hated thing. He angrily said to Di Hu, “Watch your mouth!”
The ugly and ferocious face of Di Hu shook. He already had some anger accumulated inside him, because this time, when he went to the Ice Abyss, he saw several people of the tribe had their limbs bitten off by Xuan Beasts. Now, Lu Li even wanted to challenge him?
He waved his big fists and shouted in a cold voice, “I said it, so what? If you are not willing to submit, let’s just fight. Nobody will protect you and your sister when your sixth granduncle dies. I will forcefully bed your sister. Tsk, tsk, even though your sister is a cripple, she does have an exquisite body with perfect curves, to feel it must be…”
Before Di Hu finished his sentence, Lu Li rapidly made his move. Lu Li could no longer suppress his anger, which had accumulated inside him for years when he heard Di Hu verbally abuse his sister.
Today, he decided not to restrain his anger anymore!
Di Ba had led all the adults of the tribe to the edges of the Ice Abyss and will be stationed there for a month. Lu Li had gained much strength and currently had a strength of more than 9000 pounds. The most important thing was, he would reach strength of more than 11,000 pounds in just three days maximum. After that, Lu Ling said he would definitely be able to awaken his bloodline and cultivate Xuan Energy.
Once he got his bloodline awakened, he would be recruited by the Super Families. If that was the case, what else should he worry about?
Lu Li hurriedly rushed onward like a wind and pounded Di Hu’s chest. He was so quick which caught Di Hu off guard that the latter did not even have time to realize what was happening. He was heavily pounded by Lu Li that he flew out like a broken kite.
It was lucky that Lu Li did not use his full force, or else, Di Hu would have found himself with several broken bones. Nevertheless, Di Hu was sent flying for about 13 to 16 feet, and he bounced back after he hit a tree.
Di Gu and Di Ping stood there frozen for a bit and eventually became enraged. At a distance, Di Hu hurled all kinds of abuses, “How dare you? All of you beat him. Beat him so hard that he cannot get out of bed for a month.”
Lu Li didn’t feel any fear as he furiously looked at the three with an indifferent look. He then shouted in a sullen voice, “That punch for you, Di Hu, was for abusing my sister. If you really want to fight me, you need to suffer the consequences.”
Di Gu and Di Ping didn’t mind any of Lu Li’s words. White glow gathered in Di Ping’s hand as he mobilized Xuan Energy. After which, he swung his fist hard at Lu Li’s chest.
Di Ping had only cultivated his Xuan Energy for a year, so he was not experienced in it yet. However, he was a warrior of the Xuan Wu Realm. Since Lu Li could not cultivate the Xuan Energy, he thought it must be easy to overpower Lu Li.
“You… asked for it!”
There was a light flickering in Lu Li’s eyes. He looked up and made his move towards Di Ping’s fist.
There was a sound of bone cracking. Di Ping had used his Xuan Energy, so Lu Li didn’t dare to be careless. This time, he used about 70% to 80% of his strength.
Now that he had a strength of more than 9000 pounds, 70% of it would be more than 6000 pounds. The strength of this magnitude was like a giant boulder falling off.
Di Ping miserably shouted in a strained voice like a pig being slaughtered. Di Ping’s body flew backwards and his hands were shaking while blood trickled all over his fists. He held his hands and started rolling over the ground as he kept screaming, “My hand is broken. My hand is broken!”
Di Gu, who was about to charge at Lu Li, was stunned. When they were little, they often fought Lu Li. Though Lu Li was bold and brave, they would easily beat Lu Li to the ground.
Over the recent years, Lu Li never provoked them for the sake of Lu Ling, though they thought it was surely because Lu Li could not cultivate the Xuan Energy.
Just now, there was not a single trace of Xuan Energy glow on Lu Li’s hands, so how could he be so strong that he could brake Di Ping’s hand with a single punch?
“Use your sword, cripple him!”
At a distance, Di Hu roared. Di Ping’s loud and miserable scream and his own raging pain filled Di Hu with anger.
Today, he planned not to let Lu Li stay in bed for half a month, but to destroy Lu Li’s hands and legs directly.
