“After 20 years… I’ve finally found you.”
Lu Li was taken aback and so were Jiang Qiling and Bai Qiuxue. If Ming Yu did not mishear anything, then this incident was strange.
Over 20 years ago, Lu Ling had just been born. How did this young master know Lu Ling when she was born?
According to Ming Yu, this young master did not seem to be old. How could he possibly have met Lu Ling more than 20 years ago and have looked over for her for this long?
Lu Li’s eyes flickered as he asked again, “That is all? Nothing else?”
Ming Yu nodded. “The three came out from nowhere and saw Lu Ling at once. This was the one thing they said. Afterward, the young master put a finger on Lu Ling and then she passed away. The young master carried her, and they left by tearing apart the void. Some other warriors also witnessed this. Some other servants and maids saw this as well, but they were all crushed to death by the three people’s spirit and energy.”
What happened was straightforward and sudden. The three came out from thin air, took away Lu Ling at once without resorting to violence or killing people.
What happened to the servants and maids were unexpected calamities. It was possible that the three powerful warriors did not want anyone to interfere with their task, so they used their spirit to strike awe. However, the maids and servants were too vulnerable, so they lost their lives instantly.
With only spirit and energy alone, they could crack more than half of Ming Yu’s bones when he was at the Human Sovereign Realm and kill many maids and servants?
What kind of strength was that? Not even Semi-God Realm warriors could do that. The three of them were here with a purpose and that master was young.
Lu Li believed that this was a grave matter. On the other hand, his confusion grew. He had someone to ask some witnessing warriors. He trusted Ming Yu, only to obtain more information.
But that person did not come back with much information. Apart from those in the manor, the warriors outside did not even have time to check the situation over here. They only felt three imposing presences and then Lu Ling was taken away.
Lu Li paced up and down in the room. With no information, there was nothing he could do. The Patriarchs of the Cyan Phoenix Race had already sent out scouts to probe around. Him going over the world would be pointless.
An hour later, a deacon of the Lu Family came with the portraits that he took to the soul slaves. He reported to Lu Li, “Young Master Li, Seven of Feng, Wu Feng and the others all took a look at the portrait. They were certain that the three did not come from the nine universes. They claim that they knew the Earth Immortal Realm and Semi-God Realm warriors of the nine universes very well. The three could not have come from the nine universes given their powers.”
Lu Li was even more puzzled. Where were the three mysterious warriors from if not the nine universes? Were there bigger and stronger universes other than the nine?
“Qiling, come with me.”
Lu Li could not get more information from here. He took Jiang Qiling and the twins out of the Deserted World and teleported to the Serene Cloud City which was located in the Serenity Plains.
This city was built to protect this opening. The city was prosperous. After all, with several Earth Immortal Realm warriors on guard, the city was safe.
Three Earth Immortal Realm warriors were here. Seven of Feng and Wu Feng had come back to the Serene Clouds City. They came around as soon as Lu Li arrived.
Lu Li let the deacon here go and led the three Earth Immortal Realm warriors into a secret room. Holding the portrait in his hand, Lu Li asked, “Are you sure that the three are not from the nine universes? What if they are some retired warriors of some major family?”
“There is no way!”
Wu Feng shook his head. “We actually have moles inside each other’s families, and we know perfectly clear about each families’ information. We can recognize the Human Sovereign Realm warriors, let alone Earth Immortal Realm warriors. The nine universes are not that big… but since there is a limited number of families…”
Lu Li was convinced. At the Heaven Reverse Universe, humans had moles in the Asmodians, Feather Race, Barbarian Race, and the Voodoo Race. Therefore, humans knew something of those races. The number of powerful warriors in the Asmodians could be learned via the mole, for instance.
Lu Li thought for a while before he asked again, “Are there any larger universes other than the nine universes? The Heaven Reverse Universe is connected to the Inferno and yours are connected with the Prison of Gold. What if there are other universes that are connected to the Prison of Ice, Prison of Wind, Prison of Darkness or even the Prison of Soul and Prison of Thunder?”
Seven of Feng shook his head, “There have always been warriors from the nine universes exploring the Prisons of Ice, Wind, Darkness, Soul, and Thunder. For millions of years, there have been warriors in those places. It is unlikely that we wouldn’t know if there were other powerful warriors from other universes.”
Lu Li was convinced. At the same time, he was more perplexed. The warriors were not from the nine universes or other worlds. Were they from the Divinity?
Jiang Qiling had been listening carefully. She just happened to have the same idea. “Are they from the Divinity?” She asked in astonishment.
Wu Feng and the other soul slaves had been informed of what happened to Lu Ling. They shook their heads in disapproval. Lu Li also denied the idea, “The cost of coming down to the mortal world from the Divinity is heavy. Otherwise, the Emperor of Heaven Reverse would have come back a long time ago.”
Wu Feng added, “Madam Ling, you may not know this but Emperor Heng passed away soon after he came back. Of the nine universes, many have ascended to the Divinity, but none ever came back. One of our ancestors in the Wu Family. He used a special meaning to send us a message to say that he must become a super warrior in the Divinity or else he could not come back down to the mortal world.”
“Someone in your family ascended to the Divinity?” Lu Li looked at Wu Feng with different eyes. He knew another one with a connection to the Divinity.
Jiang Qiling blinked but said nothing else. Bai Xiashuang proposed but without confidence, “What if the three of them were super-warriors in the Divinity? What if they were from superfamilies in the Divinity? In that case, could they descend to the mortal world?”
Lu Li and Wu Feng looked at each other in surprise. It was possible. If they were from a superfamily in the Divinity, the three could come to the mortal world without a hitch.
Lu Li asked again after some thoughts, “Wu Feng, you know the Semi-God Realm very well. I have a question… can a powerful Semi-God Realm just crush over half of the bones of a Human Sovereign Realm warrior with just intimidating spirit?”
Wu Feng answered without even thinking of it, “Intimidating spirit is just a means to impose pressure. People can possibly die out of fear, have blood oozing out from their faces because of terror, experience cardioactive arrest or Soul Pond explosion. But not even a warrior at the peak of the Semi-God Realm can fracture a Human Sovereign Realm warrior’s bones with intimidating spirit.”
An idea came to Lu Li’s mind that he could not believe himself. He murmured, “Are they really from the Divinity? Why can they come and go without a trace? Why can they be so powerful and so unfamiliar?”
Bai Qiuxue said with a frown, “Sister has been growing up in the Northern Desert, in the Heaven Reverse Universe. How can she know someone from the Divinity? Also, it’s been only 20 years since she was born. That young master claimed that he had been looking for her for 20 years. That makes no sense.”
“Actually, it does!”
Lu Li thought of something else. He sighed then said, “If I am right. it will make sense. Of course… I need father to come back and confirm.”
Lu Li crushed a jade talisman in his hand. It had a warning function, an identical jade talisman was held by Lu Renhuang who came back from the Prison of Ice as soon as possible after Lu Li broke his jade talisman.
