The elimination of the Samsara Region went well. Even though the total number of warriors was not large with merely several hundred on each of the three teams, they contained many powerful ones. The number of Earth Immortal Realm warriors alone was over ten. This was a force that could wipe out any old Royal Families.
The Samsara Region had very few Earth Immortal Realm warriors of its own, only two. Even those two were on their deathbeds. They died in the hands of the Master of the Palace of Heaven’s Roar and Chen Tianjiao respectively. The rest of the expedition was easy. Per Lu Li’s request, all the warriors were killed, and all the civilians were captured.
The Ji Family indeed hid a large amount of treasure here, vastly large. Lu Li’s troop were shocked by the sheer amount and even the three masters were amazed.
Lu Li didn’t even want to check after he was informed. There would definitely be piles of dead bodies. Bai Xiashuang was an innocent and kind girl. She would hate to see that sight.
Making sure that all the enemy warriors had been killed, Lu Li left with Bai Xiashuang. Great Grandfather Five was left to deal with the distribution of the loots.
Great Grandfather Five was not angry at all that Lu Li had punished Lu Fengyun. Instead, Great Grandfather Five discharged Lu Fengyun from the position of patriarch and grounded him for three years to ponder about his faults.
Also, Great Grandfather Five and Lu Zhengyang had a discussion. They informed the Lu Family that they would punish anyone that violated the rules with due severity. Lu Li was right. Lu Family had become the most prominent force and many disciples of the Lu Family were getting arrogant. But this could be detrimental to a superfamily…
Lu Li left with Bai Xiashuang. He did not cultivate. He went back to the Inferno with Bai Xiashuang. It was a pity that Bai Qiuxue was still cultivating. Therefore, Lu Li took Bai Xiashuang on a sightseeing tour.
Bai Xiashuang was not fond of cultivating. She had strong senses of fun and playfulness. She was a straightforward and innocent girl, which was why Lu Li liked her so much. Cultivation was important but his wives worth more attention. He had been busy for a long time. Finally, he could have a window of free time to keep her company.
They went to the Great Buddhist Temple and visited Cyan Phoenix Race’s ancestral ground. Afterward, they went to the Pavilion of Delicacy for Jiang Qiling.
Bai Xiashuang was over the moon because Lu Li could travel with her. She tried her best to please Lu Li in bed. With him helping her, she learned many different tricks and she was very willing. Lu Li was blessed with a good fortune in love affairs.
The Tumulus of Universe, Pavilion of Delicacy and Great Buddhist Temple were still busy. Nothing out of ordinary happened again. Everything was going smoothly.
The first that took complete control of the newly acquired territories was the Pavilion of Delicacy which was a powerful force, to begin with. Lu Li had sent Jiang Qiling several Earth Immortal Realm warriors to help. It was an easy task.
After occupying the territory of the previous Hades Society, the Pavilion of Delicacy’s strength was enhanced by a large margin. The Pavilion of Delicacy took the line share and only let their affiliates take small portions. Leaders of several large regions were all from Pavilion of Delicacy, which could ensure that they could acquire most of the resources.
The Lu Family was making progress as well. Under Lu Ling’s command, Lu Family’s armies pressed on with irresistible force. Soon, they had occupied most of Pavilion of Blossom’s territory. The Tumulus of Universe was moving away from their territory in the southeast.
Many affiliated families of the Tumulus of Universe were unwilling to leave. After all, they had been living in the southeast for years.
What was more… by staying, they would become Lu Family’s affiliates. The Lu Family was the leader now. The future could be more promising with the Lu Family than with the Tumulus of Universe.
Of course, the several seventh rank affiliates of the Tumulus of Universe were not so eager for quick success and instant benefits. The world would laugh at them if they turned to connect with the Lu Family, not to mention that Lu Family might even turn them down given how close the Lu Family and Tumulus of Universe were.
Therefore, the seventh rank’s forces left with Tumulus of Universe. The latter promised a large share of lands for those who followed. A lot of the fifth rank and sixth rank families chose to stay. The Lu Family and Ye Family did not mind.
Lu Family sent people to take over the land parcels at the southeast. The Lu Family disciples were high-spirited and vigorous. With so many lands, a larger number of people were sent to govern those areas. Many Lu Family disciples became a city master or region master overnight.
After what happened with Lu Fengyun, the Lu Family disciples had been going low profile. They did not dare to involve in any monkey business, or at least not in public. If Lu Li knew about that, they might even be banished from the Lu Family in addition to losing their status.
The Central Plains gradually returned to normal. Lu Li was just trying to divide territories of the five forces. He did not invade in other lands. That was reassuring for the Palace of Heaven’s Roars, Palace of Immortal’s Inquiries, Red Lunar and the other plains.
But it was not hard to understand. If the Lu Family sought after the unification of the world, they would not have let the Pavilion of Delicacy, Great Buddhist Temple and Tumulus of Universe to take shares of territories. The Lu Family could just publish an announcement. How dare them to resist? Who could resist?
Many families envied the Pavilion of Delicacy, Tumulus of Universe and Great Buddhist Temple. The three forces were now controlling prosperous lands. In a few thousand years with a good operation, the three forces could enter a new stage of strength.
By then, the Central Plains’ landscape would be changed completely. The Lu Family would stay at the top, while the three forces were second to none other than the Lu Family. But the Palace of Heaven’s Roars, Palace of Immortal’s Inquiries and Red Lunar would be inferior to the former three…
After things were settled at the Central Plains, Lu Li sent someone to the Demon-slaying Hall. Making sure that things were peaceful there as well, Lu Li went back to the Inferno along with Jiang Qiling.
Lu Li let some Earth Immortal Realm soul slaves stay at the City of Mystic Armor and did not bother in anything else. Lu Ling returned to the Inferno as well. Many young masters felt dejected.
Some young ladies of the Palace of Immortal’s Inquiries, Red Lunar and Palace of Heaven’s Roars tried to seduce Lu Li, but he gave all of them the cold shoulder.
Therefore, young masters of the three forces tried to fight for attention from Lu Ling. If they could find favor in her eyes, they would be able to build a connection with the Lu Family. Besides, Lu Ling was of fire phoenix birth and she was wise. Her looks were second to none in the Great Land. She was the muse and goddess that would appear in numerous men’s dreams.
However, Lu Ling had no interest in them. She was an ambitious girl and her own younger brother was so outstanding. She would not give anyone that was not better than Lu Li a second look.
Back in the Inferno, Bai Qiuxue was still cultivating. She was a diligent girl. Her Enchantment had reached the second stage. If her realm could be improved, her abilities would be unimaginable.
Jiang Qiling started cultivating as well. The magical legacy of the Emperor of Heaven Reverse that was passed on to her was not completely comprehended yet. She believed that if she could have a complete understanding of it, she would be able to reach the Semi-God Realm.
Bai Xiashuang was still reluctant to cultivate. Lu Li asked her to take Little White and wander around. But he went back to his place in the Inferno to cultivate.
He once swore to himself that he must breach into the Eastern Land of Oceans quickly and kill the Asmodian Lord to avenge Great Grandfather Three and the other deceased.
There was something else on his mind that he had not told others. He could always feel a sense of urgency. The Asmodian Lord knew about the Wicked Bead. He tried to get it, which was surprising for Lu Li.
Lu Li believed that—
There was someone else behind the Asmodian Lord. It was not the Asmodian Lord that wanted the Wicked Bead, but the person behind him.
Maybe very soon, whoever was behind the Asmodian Lord would come to the Universe of Heaven Reverse. If Lu Li could not reach a higher level, then the Universe of Heaven Reverse would face a great calamity.
In the yard, Lu Li drove all the thoughts away from his mind. He must make the best of time to study and engrave more line diagrams.
In the meantime, he tried to dissolve the second layer of a seal in the Wicked Bead, which he believed could elevate his powers to the next level…
