Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1510: Family[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:23:28]
The Space Boundaries Crystal spun in midair, spraying dazzling divine light.
Each and every beam of light contained spatial power, as if they could help Pei Qiqi establish connections to different areas in the starry river, allowing her to perceive what was happening in any human domain.
In the beams of light shooting from the Space Boundaries Crystal, Nie Tian could vaguely see that darkness had enveloped an area of the starry river by the shattered Realm of Heaven Span, where the black tortoise’s enormous looming shape was slowly expanding.
Though separated by endless space, he could imagine the black tortoise’s immense flesh aura thrumming from that darkness-shrouded area.
In another mirror-like beam of light, he saw the headquarters of the Streamcloud Sword Sect, which sat in a sea of clouds.
He saw the loftiest pavilion Pei Qiqi had mentioned, and the countless Godspan Sword Lights hovering around it and letting out cheerful low chirps, as if they were waiting to greet Yin Xingtian.
He instantly realized that the places Pei Qiqi had been to recently would be reflected in the beams of mysterious light that shot out of the Space Boundaries Crystal.
In this case, it was the Realm of Heaven Span and the Streamcloud Sword Sect.
“It seems that the Space Boundaries Crystal has become a divine tool already...” Nie Tian said inwardly.
Pei Qiqi, however, assumed a tight grip on the Space Boundaries Crystal with a grim expression, as if they were facing formidable foes.
“Outside.” In a few seconds, she charged out of the Realm of Ancient Heights into the starry river, holding the Space Boundaries Crystal.
Nie Tian followed along.
The starry river outside the realm was dark and dotted with a few dim stars. There wasn’t a single sun or moon in sight.
Strange energies suddenly started madly gathering and condensing in a distant location, as if a bottomless hole was about to form.
Eyes like icy diamonds, Pei Qiqi pointed in that direction and said to Nie Tian, “That’s it. It’s said that powerful ancient beings could split open spatial rifts with the help of wondrous tools even if they weren’t skilled at spatial power. Grand Monarch Remote Demon is only at the early tenth grade. He doesn’t have such an ability.”
Surprised, Nie Tian asked, “Are you saying that whoever’s coming here is much more powerful than Grand Monarch Remote Demon?”
Pei Qiqi nodded slightly. “Didn’t people say that Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory of the Demons has awoken and come out of the Blood Purgatory Sea? He was at the late tenth grade before he died. If he’s really come back to life, given his bloodline grade, I suppose he can create spatial rifts with his terrifying flesh aura and the help of certain wondrous spatial items.
“The spatial barriers between the Spirit World and the Mortal World aren’t very rigorous. Many outsider races have left plenty of spell formations in the Mortal World that they can use to facilitate teleportation.”
As she spoke, the energies surged and condensed even more violently.
Nie Tian’s expression flickered strongly. “Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory!”
A spatial rift slowly split open in the void behind Pei Qiqi.
Clearly, Pei Qiqi was prepared to evacuate at any time. “We’d have nothing to fear if it was just Grand Monarch Remote Demon that’s coming here. He’d die beyond the shadow of a doubt after you and I joined hands. However, if it’s both Grand Monarch Bloodlust and Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory, we’d better avoid getting into a fight against them, considering our current battle prowess.”
Nie Tian wasn’t reckless. He nodded and said, “Let’s be cautious and see what we’re facing first.”
The two of them then fixed their gazes on the energy-gathering place, wondering who would suddenly come to the Realm of Ancient Heights at this moment.
THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!
Moments later, Nie Tian’s heart suddenly started racing.
Taken aback, he activated Life Detection, hoping to locate the source of the vigorous flesh aura he was sensing in this boundless starry river.
A huge cluster of blindingly bright light suddenly manifested in his sea of awareness.
Its size and brightness surpassed that of all living beings in the Realm of Ancient Heights put together!
Even those ninth grade Demon grand patriarchs had only seemed like two bright lamps in the darkness under Life Detection.
However, at this moment, that huge cluster of light took up almost his entire sea of awareness, and was shining so brightly that he couldn’t see anything else.
He even started to feel lightheaded looking at it.
He couldn’t help but exclaim, “Such immense flesh aura! It’s definitely not Grand Monarch Remote Demon. The flesh aura of an early tenth grade grand monarch can’t possibly reach such heights!”
“So it’s Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory then,” Pei Qiqi said, feeling uneasy. “We’re not strong enough to contend against a late tenth grade grand monarch yet. Do we leave?”
Nie Tian shook his head with an expression of disbelief. “It’s not Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory either. It’s the Ripper Behemoth. It’s coming here...”
Pei Qiqi was in disbelief as well. “Isn’t it somewhere near the Domain of Heaven Span? Why would it come here all of a sudden? Also, the Domain of Heaven Span is so far away from here, and that Ripper Behemoth has been hiding on that floating continent. How did it get here so fast? With a sudden realization, she added, “It must be here for Grand Monarch Remote Demon!
“Only vigorous flesh auras have such strong appeal to it!”
She hastily spun the Space Boundaries Crystal.
In the next moment, the image of the floating continent emerged on one of the facets of the crystal.
The floating continent was speeding through the void, giving rise to spatial ripples. It covered large areas of the starry river with every passing second.
Pei Qiqi was flabbergasted. “My heavens! It’s the floating continent indeed! But it’s traveling using spatial wonders. That’s why it can cover an area of the starry river in the blink of an eye. Don’t tell me that the Ripper Behemoth has even mastered spatial power after its feeding session?!”
Nie Tian smiled bitterly. “I’ve no idea.”
“So it’s coming here...” Pei Qiqi said, looking worried. “Can you establish soul communication with it as you did before, so we can see if it’s returned to its senses after its mad killing and realm-devouring in the Domain of Heaven Span?”
“Alright, let me give it a shot,” Nie Tian said.
Clutching the Star Behemoth bone, he sent wisps of his flesh aura and soul awareness into it as he tried to communicate with it as he had in the Domain of Heaven Span.
“How are you doing?”
“I’ve come to my senses.”
Their soul communication was established without any obstacles!
In a few seconds Nie Tian’s expression flickered violently as he jerked his head towards Pei Qiqi.
Pei Qiqi was baffled.
“There are Voidspirits on the floating continent. I heard them calling your name!” Nie Tian said.
Pei Qiqi shuddered. “What did you say? Some Voidspirits on the floating continent called my name? Are they my family? Are you sure?”
Her eyes instantly welled up. Tears started rolling down like fragmentary diamonds.
How many years had it been?
She had painstakingly searched for her family since when she had been in the Realm of Split Void.
She had searched almost every spatial rift in the Void Illusion Mountain Range. Because of that, her master had been killed.
She had been to the space disruption zone and numerous desolate lands, but had returned empty-handed every time.
Now, all of a sudden, Nie Tian told her that some Voidspirits on the floating continent were calling her name. How could she not be thrilled?
“Qiqi.” A distant voice traveled through space to echo in Pei Qiqi’s ears.
She instantly burst into tears.
Nie Tian suddenly realized that the reason why the floating continent could travel in such a manner that defied space was because there were Voidspirits on the floating continent, not because the Star Behemoth had mastered spatial power.
Also, they weren’t just anyone. They were Pei Qiqi’s family.
