Chapter 1454: True Identity
If it had been Xuanyang Emperor Lord, perhaps she could have held on a little until help arrived.
But it was White Chalk Ghostly Lord, someone she loathed to the core. He made her sick.
If she was taken by such a person, it would be worse than death itself!
Qin Yunling had already struggled for a long time, but she was still unable to free herself from the Abominable Hook Soul Chains. Instead, the great void immortal treasure and soul fire were wounding her severely!
And at this time, White Chalk Ghostly Lord had a sleazy smile on his face, as his hands moved in groping motions towards her chest......
Qin Yunling’s head felt like it was going to explode. She was almost frothing at the mouth. As discontent as she was, she knew what was more important. And losing it now did not mean that she would be out of the running. She made her decision!
After all, she could still struggle, and pulling out the Rainbow Pearl was not difficult. The Rainbow Pearl appeared in her hand, and she flung it outwards. It vanished from Wu Yu’s sight in a flash!
To think that she was so hard about it. Wu Yu immediately vanished in pursuit. As he left, the Abominable Hook Soul Chains naturally could not hold Qin Yunling. Wu Yu only held her for a while longer before she broke free!
However, Wu Yu had already obtained the Rainbow Pearl at this time. It was a curious object, and could not be faked. He hurriedly kept it. Now there were six of such Rainbow Pearls, and he had already taken three. The other three were with Gu Huo Immortal Lord, Mo Yuji, and Xuanyang Emperor Lord.
"Haha!" Finally in hand, Wu Yu did not forget to continue his act. Qin Yunling was already red with anger, driven close to hysteria. She came charging at Wu Yu with the Tragic Mirror blazing.
"A pity that I wasn’t fortunate enough to make love to you today. But one day, you will willingly beg me to take you." Wu Yu laughed.
"Die!" Qin Yunling screamed madly.
Wu Yu did not want to waste time here. That had been a performance, in line with White Chalk Ghostly Lords’ repulsive behavior. A bit of acting was enough.
"Seems like Old Wu is very talented in this. Perhaps a sleazy personality lurks within those bones." Full Moon of Nanshan commented laughingly.
"Do you think everyone is like you?" Ye Xixi rolled her eyes.
"Like me? It would have been impossible for me. If I had such a beauty captured, I wouldn’t care about the 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King. Is a 10th Grade Mark of an Immortal King more important than a beautiful lady?" Full Moon of Nanshan demanded brazenly.
"You’re garbage." Ye Xixi rolled her eyes again.
Wu Yu was still moving through Hell with various identities, and it was not convenient to let them out. While the Floating Dreams Pagoda was still useful, they would use the time to cultivate. Wu Yu was different. The effects of the Floating Dreams Pagoda’s time changes had become weaker for him.
Now that he had obtained three pearls, he should continue to strike while the iron was hot. He had already received some immortal message talismans from the other Hell masters and ghostly kings, who had confirmed that the three Rainbow Pearls had gone to White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, Qin Yunling, and Xuanyang Emperor Lord.
Because Xuanyang Emperor Lord and Qin Yunling had a special status, so all of the ghostly immortals were looking for White-Eyed Ghostly Lord. The Hell masters were also searching. But they had all forgotten about Xuanyang Emperor Lord.
"That White-Eyed Ghostly Lord moves strangely! Find Xuanyang Emperor Lord for me instead! Whoever can give me Xuanyang Emperor Lord’s trail will be richly rewarded!" Wu Yu sent out immortal message talismans to all of them, directing their focus to Xuanyang Emperor Lord!
The Hell masters and ghostly kings were taken aback by this message. "White Chalk Ghostly Lord is scared of White-Eyed Ghostly Lord? He’s not chasing White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, but Xuanyang Emperor Lord instead? That’s the son of the Beiyin Necropolis Grand Emperor, isn’t he stronger than you?"
Of course, they kept their thoughts to themselves.
And since White Chalk Ghostly Lord had spoken of rich rewards for just the location, what was there not to be happy about?
"Command your subordinates to tell me if they find Xuanyang Emperor Lord! Rich rewards!"
Wu Yu again sent out the immortal message talismans. He actually felt that chances were not high. Xuanyang Emperor Lord was keeping his head down, and had probably already sought shelter far away. He might even be protected by Hell masters.
Not many knew that he had snatched away Qin Yunling’s Rainbow Pearl. The Hell masters only knew that White Chalk Ghostly Lord and Qin Yunling had fought, and they rushed over now. Halfway through they had received Qin Yunling’s immortal message talisman, and jumped in fright. It was soon followed by another immortal message talisman!
"Find White Chalk Ghostly Lord for me! I want him smashed to pieces! Whoever who finds him will be generously rewarded!" The ghostly kings and Hell masters who followed Qin Yunling started to speculate. Did this mean that Qin Yunling had come out worse in the fight? And it seemed like her treasure had been snatched by White Chalk Ghostly Lord? No matter how you looked at it, White Chalk Ghostly Lord just didn’t seem that capable......
After all, it was much more difficult to snatch something away from someone of equal strength, compared to killing them.
Right now, Qin Yunling was looking for White Chalk Ghostly Lord, while White Chalk Ghostly Lord was looking for Xuanyang Emperor Lord. Everyone was looking for White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, and even Chakravarti Ghostly King and his daughter Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord, trying to track down White-Eyed Ghostly Lord through them.
Actually, the two of them wanted to find White-Eyed Ghostly Lord more than anyone else.
On a broken star, Chakravarti Ghostly King and Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord were huddled. Their eyes were wild, especially Chakravarti Ghostly King’s. His face was as heavy as molten metal, and Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord was gripped with panic. She gabbled incessantly and distractedly: "Daddy, are you really certain? How could it be? How could he have killed Pitch Dark Ghostly Lord...... Impossible......"
Chakravarti Ghostly King’s haunted eyes were lost in thought, and he did not reply.
Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord had sunk into despair after thinking about the consequences. She saw a bleak future ahead of her.
"I heard he even snatched a Rainbow Pearl? Could it be luck? Impossible! How could a useless guy like him have such skills? Not even all the Hell masters got one......"
Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord was still babbling. She sat on the floor, her face listless. She was on the verge of crying.
"We’re doomed. Our whole family will be destroyed because of trash like you. We’re doomed!"
"Shut up!" Chakravarti Ghostly King shouted fiercely, giving Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord a fright. Her tears fell noisily.
"Daddy......" Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord was afraid. Even her usually composed and doting father was now in a dark mood. That meant that they were truly in trouble.
"Stop yakking! Let me think!" Chakravarti Ghostly King said tersely.
"Is there even a way to live, everyone saw it......" Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord’s voice was feeble. She sat on the floor with her legs bent sideways, limp with fear at her future.
"That must be it!" Excitement had returned to Chakravarti Ghostly King’s face. He gripped Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord with both hands, lifting her up from the ground. The frown on his face had eased a little. He declared: "We have a chance to live! There’s hope!"
"How can it be? Judge Wangfeng won’t care about White-Eyed Ghostly Lord’s relationship with us. In his anger, he’s sure to take revenge on us."
Chakravarti Ghostly King said: "You think that way because you don’t know that the one who killed Pitch Dark Ghostly Lord was not White-Eyed Ghostly Lord at all!"
"Huh?" Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord was confused.
Chakravarti Ghostly King released her, and continued feverishly: "I had suspected it for a while now. How could a useless thing like White-Eyed Ghostly Lord have such abilities and techniques? I’ve watched him for hundreds of thousands of years, and he’s been the same damn way. How could he suddenly get good? Do you remember that an immortal lord suddenly emerged from the Prismatic Thunderball with some sort of escape ability? Even I couldn’t catch him, and was led around?"
"I remember. That person seemed very powerful. But then there was no news of him afterwards." Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord did not understand why her father was telling her all this.
Chakravarti Ghostly King’s eyes blazed: "When White-Eyed Ghostly Lord fought Pitch Dark Ghostly Lord and White Chalk Ghostly Lord, I saw that he used the same skill, to render White Chalk Ghostly Lord unable to track his movements. And he used it very masterfully as well. How could he have used a Mystique that I had never seen before, in such a short time? This means that that person is not White-Eyed Ghostly Lord. He might well be that immortal lord, with some sort of transformation ability that prevents others from telling the difference......"
"Is that true?!" Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord was still reeling from all this. She ran this theory against her memories. It sounded possible, but still she was doubtful. "If it was someone else, how could they have White-Eyed Ghostly Lord’s great void immortal treasure, and use his techniques? When he defeated me, he did not seem that different......"
"I don’t know how he did it. But I am sure that person is definitely not White-Eyed Ghostly Lord. As for when the impersonator took over, I don’t think it was within these 10 years he vanished. I guess that it might have been the first time he defeated you, and got permission from me to see the Prismatic Thunderball!"
Amethyst-Eyed Ghostly Lord’s face was pale. "How could it be? Such a strong being, to be able to impersonate someone without us detecting at all. I felt that he’s still the same......"
She still had her doubts, but she trusted her father’s judgment.
"All I can say is that White-Eyed Ghostly Lord was a talentless failure. After you overtook him, there was no possibility for him to make a come back. Although there were a few other suspicious points, just looking into his eyes will make you realize that he’s a fake!"
"What are we to do now?"
"We have to prove that he’s not White-Eyed Ghostly Lord, and that he’s someone else. Your brother might be long dead. That way, Judge Wangfeng will have no business against us. Therefore, we must catch him and find proof!"
Chakravarti Ghostly King had to stake his life on this now. Or it was forfeit anyway.
Now they were not in the Maelstrom Silver Dagger Sphere, his abilities were fully restored. All he needed was the truth, and he was a very real threat to Wu Yu......
