Lu Ling was everything to Lu Li. She was more important than Lu Renhuang and Lu Zhengyang!
Jiang Qiling, Bai Xiashuang, and Bai Qiuxue knew very well the close bond between Lu Li and Lu Ling.
The three of them understood the sufferings of Lu Ling when she was young. They admired Lu Ling, this wonderful girl, from the depth of their heart and they adored their sister-in-law.
Lu Ling could be as cold as winter to her enemies, but she spoiled the ones she loved. As Lu Li’s three wives, Jiang Qiling, Bai Xiashuang, and Bai Qiuxue were doted by Lu Ling. How she wished she could give the best in the world to them.
Therefore, Jiang Qiling and the other two were in a rush to find Lu Li after they were informed by Ming Yu.
But they did not know the specifics because Ming Yu was not here in person. They were told that Ming Yu was injured and he sent an underling to report the information.
Ming Yu was the one managing the Deserted World and the Inferno. After marrying Lu Feixue, Ming Yu enjoyed a high status in the Lu Family. Adding to that, Ming Yu was praised by Lu Li and Lu Ling, which made it possible for Ming Yu to take control of the Deserted World and the Inferno.
Lu Li could not waste another minute. He could not get more information by staying here. He and his three wives left the castle.
Outside, Great Grandfather Five and the other patriarchs of the Lu Family were waiting. Lu Li gave them a glance and left a quick word, “Great Grandfather Five, block the information. Take care of the family.”
Lu Li teleported to the eastern seas with his three wives and then made their way to the Deserted World.
They arrived at the hot springs in the Deserted World. There was a manor that Lu Li built for Jiang Qiling and the twins. Over ten thousand warriors were stationed here all year round to prevent any unauthorized access.
The stationed warriors were of ancient races and their leader was a patriarch of the Hags Race. He bowed on the sight of Lu Li.
“How is the Deserted World? Where is Ming Yu?” Lu Li asked coldly.
“The Deserted World is peaceful!”
The patriarch of the Hags Race answered with caution, “It has been stabilized in the Inferno also. Lord Ming Yu is in the Inferno.”
“Activate the Teleportation Formation!”
Lu Li asked no more questions and stepped into the Teleportation Formation, arriving at the entrance of the Inferno.
There was an army stationed here as well. Lu Li took a look to make sure everything was fine before he stepped into the Inferno.
In the original base camp area in the Inferno, a small city had come into being. Several large castles were constructed for Lu Li, Lu Ling, and Ming Yu.
As soon as Lu Li came in, he released the Feather Wind castle in case there were ambushes. He checked with psychic power and made sure that this area was peaceful without any enemies. He was relieved.
Many people came over and dropped to one knee in front of Lu Li. He knew many faces here but he was in no mood to engage in conversations with them. He found Ming Yu in a yard with psychic power.
It was a yard where Lu Li would live in when he came here. Now, many buildings had collapsed. Lu Li noticed many blood stains. Many must have been deceased.
Ming Yu was in bad shape. Over half of his bones were fractured but he was still conscious. He was lying on the bed. Ding Gui was treating him while Lu Feixue sat on the side with tears in her eyes.
Lu Li and his three wives flew directly into the yard, alarming Lu Feixe. She came over, tears kept dropping down her cheeks. “Lu Li, Lu Ling is taken. Save her, save her!” She said, choking.
Jiang Qiling and the twins hurried over to comfort her. Lu Li asked Ming Yu, “Can you talk now?”
Ming Yu struggled to sit up, took a deep breath and said, “I could not protect Lady Ling. I have sinned.”
“That is unhelpful nonsense.” Lu Li continued coldly, “Tell me what matters. Who took my sister? Where did they go?”
“I don’t know!”
Ming Yu shook his head. “Those three people came out of nowhere. None of our scouts sensed anything. The three of them were so powerful that I was immobilized by their spirit only. My bones were cracked. Some even lost their lives. The three people took Lady Ling and left by tearing apart the void. I do not know where they have gone.”
“Spirit? Tearing apart the void?”
Lu Li was frightened. Ming Yu was at the Human Sovereign Realm. Not even a Semi-God Realm warrior could make Ming Yu’s bones fracture just by emitting spiritual energy.
What was more, they left by tearing apart the void? Lu Li did not know there were other powerful warriors in the Heaven Reverse Universe that could sneak into the void apart from the Asmodians.
In addition… those people could just fly away after taking Lu Ling. The Inferno had few powerful warriors. Nobody could have stopped the three.
Those Earth Immortal Realm soul slaves were never allowed in the Inferno for fear that they might be killed by the rules of the Prison of Primordial Chaos.
Therefore, the Inferno had no Earth Immortal Realm warriors. Lu Li believed that the three warriors must be at least of the Earth Immortal Realm and it was highly likely that they were at the Semi-God Realm. If so, why would they have to try to cover up their tracks?
“Are they from the Mage Imperial Universe or the other universes?”
A glint of coldness rose in Lu Li’s eyes. His first thought was that warriors from the nine universes had come early. They sneaked into the Inferno, abducted Lu Ling to force Lu Li to give up the Wicked Bead.
“Get me some painters!”
Lu Li shouted. Arrangements were made. Soon, several old warriors walked over. Lu Li told Ming Yu, “Tell the details of the three people and let them paint a portrait.”
Lu Li left afterwards. A patriarch of the Cyan Phoenix Race had been here waiting. “Anything?” Lu Li asked.
The patriarch of the Cyan Phoenix Race said with fright, “There is no trace. It is as if the three have come from the heavens and then vanished in the Inferno! I have looked into it. None of the passageways into the Inferno were used. It was unlikely that the three could have entered the Inferno without a sound or a trace. Also… we have people guarding in the mountain area. The Inhibition Formation set up by the Shadowland Race was never touched. No one descended from the towering mountain!”
“How is that possible?”
Lu Li was filled with disbelief. To enter the Inferno, one must either come down from the mountain or enter through the Deserted World.
However, neither side had any marks. Did the three really tear open the void to enter the Inferno?
There was no doubt that the patriarch of the Cyan Phoenix Race was more than capable in scouting. Lu Li was confused. He waved his hand and said, “Send a message to Ye Cha. Get all the powerful warriors of your race here. Do not ignore anything.”
The patriarch of the Cyan Phoenix Race bowed and left. The painters had drawn some portraits according to Ming Yu’s description.
Lu Li compared the portraits. They looked quite similar to each other. One of them was a young man with imposing appearances, while the other two seemed to be his servant. The three of them all wore white armors. That young master with imposing looks was domineering and impressive.
“Send those portraits to the Deserted World and Serene Cloud City!”
Lu Li waved his hand, giving those portraits to Wu Feng, Seven of Feng and the other soul slaves take a look. They would know if the three were from the nine universes.
Lu Li did not leave. He asked Ming Yu solemnly, “What happened back then? Did they say anything? I don’t suppose they just took away my sister without saying anything.”
“They said something!”
Ming Yu tried to think but he seemed confused as he retold the story, “I think that Young Master said… it’s been 20 years and I have finally found you.”
