Star Odyssey - Chapter 1618
“Captain, that’s actually not the point. What I’m trying to point out is that there’s no grievances between Chaosgod Mountain and Big Sis: why did they target her? Why did they go through the Leo family? Was it really because of orders from the Ignition Crew? Why didn’t the Ignition Crew just handle it themselves? The way that Jin He mentioned this matter, there were details that have remained hidden, and there were no records of it even on Chaosgod Mountain. The whole thing’s really weird,” Lu Yin said.
Highsage Leon seemed to think of something. “There were once rumors that the current master of Chaosgod Mountain originally came from the Longevity Brigade.”
Lu Yin’s eyes widened, and his mind started to race. Something occurred to him in an instant, only to flee from his mind just as quickly. He continued to consider what he had been told.
“No one believed that rumor, and only a few people ever mentioned it even when the rumor first appeared. What’s their connection to the Ignition Crew now? I’ll have to go to Chaosgod Mountain and personally ask Cang Zhou about this,” Highsage Leon declared.
Lu Yin suddenly remembered the thought he had been chasing, and he quickly said, “It’s the Longevity Brigade! Boss, it’s the Longevity Brigade!”
“What about the Longevity Brigade?” Highsage Leon was left confused.
Lu Yin gritted his teeth. “People from the Longevity Brigade visited Chaosgod Mountain a few days ago. They were wanting to pick up some criminals from Chaosgod Mountain to help with exploring the Cosmic Sea. I didn’t think much of it at the time, so I just told Cang Yi to send them off with a batch of criminals, but now it’s clear that everything that happened at Chaosgod Mountain after that was triggered by that incident.”
Highsage Leon snorted coldly. “If it really is the Longevity Brigade, then I’ll have to kill that Ji bastard! He’s had a good relationship with your daddy, so he better not have stabbed me in the back.”
“Boss, wait for news from me. I’ll get to the bottom of this, and then we’ll get our revenge,” Lu Yin said.
Highsage Leon grunted. “I feel better with that. Alright, I’ll wait to hear from you.”
The call then ended.
Lu Yin felt that the call had ended rather oddly. Had he just unknowingly agreed to settle the feud that Highsage Leon had with the Longevity Brigade?
In the Outerverse, Wang Wen was again meeting with a representative from the Autumnfrost family on Zenyu Star. His counterpart was a beautiful middle-aged woman. Though the woman looked soft, her eyes were sharp, and every word she spoke was a threat.
“Where’s your alliance leader? Have him see me immediately. A mere junior like him will be killed by our ancestor with a single breath; is that why he doesn’t dare show himself?” The beautiful woman mocked.
Wang Wen had a headache. The Sixth Mainland’s three Progenitors were currently occupied blocking the passage to the Sixth Mainland, and even though the rest of the Sixth Mainland still completely outclassed the Fifth Mainland when it came to pure power, the Sixth Mainland was still quite cautious.
At this moment, Wang Wen was thinking about Lu Yin’s orders to start a conflict with the Autumnfrost family in order to divert attention away from Chaosgod Mountain. Was that even possible? It was just too dangerous.
No matter how cautious the Sixth Mainland might be towards the Fifth Mainland, the moment a war started, both the Outerverse Innerverse would be crushed.
This whole thing was so confusing! Wang Wen could not help himself from scratching his head.
“Boy, I’m talking to you!” The woman glared at Wang Wen. “Hurry up and release our Autumnfrost family’s young master, Uncle Hua, and Di Fa. Do that, aplogize to my Autumnfrost family, and leave the Outerverse and we’ll drop this matter.”
“You just keep saying the same thing, but your Autumnfrost family’s people have nothing to do with my Great Eastern Alliance,” Wang Wen said.
The beautiful woman grew furious, and her eyes exuded a terrible pressure. “It looks like the Great Eastern Alliance actually wants to start a war with my Autumnfrost family. I hope you have powerhouses who can stop my ancestor. At least that will allow the ancestor to have some fun.”
With that, she turned and left.
There was an Envoy on Zenyu Star, which made the woman hesitant to take action. Otherwise, the planet would have been destroyed long ago.
At this moment, Wang Wen received a message on his gadget. When he saw it, he quickly called out to the woman, “Senior! Wait a moment.”
The middle-aged woman turned just her head to glare at Wang Wen.
Wang Wen smiled, and it looked quite sincere. “Senior, your family’s people have been found.”
The beautiful woman glared at the young man. “How can you dare claim that they weren’t caught by the Great Eastern Alliance?”
Wang Wen answered in an earnest and honest voice, “They were discovered by the Hall of Honor. It’s nothing to do with our Great Eastern Alliance.”
A long time later, Wang Wen let out a sigh of relief and collapsed in exhaustion. The woman had finally left.
Autumnfrost Qing, Uncle Hua, Di Fa, and all of the others had been returned to the Autumnfrost family. No matter how the Autumnfrost family reacted to the matter, he was determined to claim that they had been found by the Hall of Honor.
Uncle Hua was absolutely furious that Wang Wen insisted that the Great Eastern Alliance had absolutely nothing to do with the matter. Even when when Autumnfrost Qing insisted that he had been injured by Lu Yin, Wang Wen simply replied that it must have been an illusion. The Great Eastern Alliance had had nothing to do with the matter, and there was no evidence to the contrary.
As for how the Autumnfrost family might respond in the future, it was a matter for the future. War could not be allowed for the moment.
At this thought, Wang Wen immediately called Lu Yin. “What’s going on? How was Chaosgod Mountain lost?”
Lu Yin shrugged. “Some experts showed up and saved Cang Zhou. There was no way for me to stop them.”
“Where were Liu Ye and Fei Hua? They’re both peak masters with power levels of more than 700,000. Couldn’t they have stopped them?”
“They couldn’t do it.”
“What’s the current situation?” Wang Wen instantly grew much more serious. If not even Liu Ye and Fei Hua had been able to stop the attackers, then the matter was more serious than he had thought.
Lu Yin hid nothing at all from Wang Wen.
Wang Wen listened to Lu Yin’s story, and then solemnly replied, “If all of that was just done to deal with Leon’s Armada, why would they have tried so hard to keep everything hidden? If the Longevity Brigade’s also involved, then things are even more bizarre. The Ignition Crew and the Longevity Brigade combined are more than capable of dealing with Leon’s Armada. On top of that, why would they have pulled Chaosgod Mountain into the mix and then secretly sent orders to the Leo family? Nothing about this makes any sense.”
“That’s why I want to investigate this,” Lu Yin said.
Wang Wen cautioned Lu Yin, “It’s possible that there’s a larger conspiracy behind this and some other hand controlling things. Be careful; this matter isn’t simple.”
“I know, and that’s why I’ve decided to head to Little Millennium Flowzone to visit the Starsibyl Sect,” Lu Yin said.
Wang Wen frowned. “Everyone’s a suspect until the truth is revealed. Not even the Starsibyl Sect is an exception.”
“I’m going to investigate first. I’ve got Liu Ye and Fei Hua with me, as well as a bunch of equipment. It won’t be a problem for me to stay safe. Also, it’s not a big deal whether or not I go. Actually, help me find Xuan Jiu,” Lu Yin suddenly asked when he remembered the old man.
Wang Wen’s brows rose high. “The old scammer?”
“He isn’t a liar. If you can find him, you might learn that for yourself.”
Lu Yin did not know if Cang Zhou would expose Lu Yin’s attack on Chaosgod Mountain after Lu Yin had been driven out.
Logically speaking, such a thing should not happen, as the master of Chaosgod Mountain would not be able to explain how he had been rescued. After all, Lu Yin had moved with Liu Ye and Fei Hua, each of whom was an expert with a power level exceeding 700,000. Cang Zhou could not have fought off such people, and receiving hidden help would make Cang Zhou look suspicious, and all of the other Innerverse forces would grow wary of the mountain.
It was unlikely for the matter to be exposed, but Cang Zhou would definitely manage to find a way to secretly stir up trouble in the Innerverse and have the various powers unite against Lu Yin, which would not be good for the Great Eastern Alliance.
Lu Yin considered the matter the entire way to Giant Consortium. However, even after arriving, he had still not managed to come up with any sort of solution. The only answer was to secretly eliminate Cang Zhou, but the older man would never allow Lu Yin another opportunity to do so.
Qing Kong proved to be very, very annoying. When Lu Yin had first hatched his plot to take control of Chaosgod Mountain, the giant had disapproved, but Lu Yin had actually failed. This meant that Giant Consortium would no longer receive any protection from Chaosgod Mountain, and it was even possible that Chaosgod Mountain would use this matter to reveal the existence and location of the giants, and that would trigger the Expeditionary Force to likely take action before anyone else.
Qing Kong’s expression was quite bad as he looked at Lu Yin, but the giant did not dare say a single thing. Chaosgod Mountain would no longer help the giants, and they could not rely on any of the other Innerverse powers, which meant that their only option was to rely on the protection of Lu Yin and the Great Eastern Alliance.
Qing Kong had already known that Lu Yin had intended to attack Chaosgod Mountain and take control of the place. With that, Giant Consortium would no longer be under the umbrella of Chaosgod Mountain, but would instead need to rely on Lu Yin. Even though he had failed, Giant Consortium was still left with no choice but to stay with Lu Yin. The moment Lu Yin had taken action, Giant Consortium had become permanently bound to him.
Qing Kong maliciously believed that Lu Yin’s goal all along had been Giant Consortium.
Lu Yin had no time to bother considering Qing Kong’s thoughts. He had only returned to Giant Consortium to drop off the colossal giants from Chaosgod Mountain. There was no reason for him to even think about whether or not the giants were still with him, as they had no choice. Qing Kong was in a position that left him with no room to maneuver at all.
“Lord Lu, someone from Shamrock Enterprise is asking to meet with you.” Leng Yan had been given the task of hosting Lu Yin, and during his stay, she was treated as his subordinate.
“Who is it?” Lu Yin asked.
“The secretary of the company’s Innerverse president,” Leng Yan replied.
“Let him in.”
Yan soon appeared, following behind Leng Yan. When the man saw Lu Yin, he gave a respectful bow. “Yan greets Alliance Leader Lu.”
Lu Yin looked at the man. “What did you bring me?”
Yan glanced over at Leng Yan, she quickly left the two men alone.
After Leng Yan left, Yan took out a delicate bottle that gave off a cold feeling. Lu Yin had no idea what the bottle was made from, but he was able to see that the cold it gave off had the power of an Enlighter, and yet the bottle still did not freeze.
Lu Yin took the bottle, and his hand started to grow cold. While the coldness was enough to freeze most Enlighters, it was merely cold for Lu Yin.
After Lu Yin opened the bottle, he saw a round bead covered with spikes. He was truly surprised, “This is a stellular energy pill?”
“Yes. The stellular energy pill is not swallowed like a pill, but instead used like a power vessel that can let someone briefly enter the true universe.”
“Why is there only one?”
Yan pulled out two more of the cold bottles and handed them over to Lu Yin.
Lu Yin studied the stellular energy pill. Each pill possessed a staggering number of runes, and they surpassed those of a cultivator with a power level of 500,000. No wonder these things could allow a person to enter the true universe. Still, even though they were so powerful, they were still nothing more than mere items.
Lu Yin could not begin to imagine how such a thing had been made.
“Your Shamrock Enterprise is quite impressive for you to be able to make something like this,” Lu Yin calmly praised as his eyes narrowed.
Yan said nothing. He knew that he had made many mistakes in his dealings with Lu Yin.
Lu Yin felt disappointed by the lack of reaction. “Alright, you’ve delivered the pills, so you can leave.”
Yan respectfully dismissed himself. He did not care about the agreement Lu Yin had reached with Balsam; Yan had just made the trip to make a delivery.
“Wait,” Lu Yin suddenly spoke up to stop Yan from leaving.
“Is there something else that you need, Alliance Leader Lu?”
“How come Yu Mu had a stellular energy pill? Actually, he had more than one,” Lu Yin asked with curiosity. Given Yu Mu’s position and status, he should never have qualified to even know about the stellular energy pill. After all, the woman who had been sent after him had not known about it.
“Yu Mu was part of my Shamrock Enterprise for many years. All you need to know is that I never hid anything from him.”
“You guys trusted him so much, and yet still killed him?” Lu Yin mocked.
Yan fell silent.
Lu Yin waved a hand and Yan walked out.
Lu Yin’s mood improved slightly as he stared at the stellular energy pill he was holding. He grabbed one and carefully studied it, but was unable to understand how such a little thing could be so powerful. These pills could open the true universe up to a person. Was it possible that they contained pyrolyte?
