2511 The Flower of Disaster’s Nectar!
The only reason Demon Star could not answer was that she did not know.
As such, Lin Yuan could not help but question the truth of what Lhalu said.
Lhalu was smart but also sly.
Lin Yuan was certain that Lhalu would not lie to him with ease. However, he did have many schemes running through his mind that could lead Lin Yuan to make the wrong assessment.
When Demon Star could not answer the question, Hollow Earth, Rock Underworld, and Mountain Furrow knew that this was the best chance for them to leave a good impression on Lin Yuan.
Rock Underworld spoke first. “You… Lord, the Earth’s Sacred Fruit indeed exists. But how did you come to hear of it? The deaths of the Turning Wheel Realm are definitely related to the Earth’s Sacred Fruit!”
Rock Underworld’s words dispelled Lin Yuan’s suspicion.
Lin Yuan noticed that Rock Underworld, Mountain Furrow, and Hollow Earth looked surprised and suspicious. It was clear they were curious about how he had heard about the Earth’s Sacred Fruit.
But when the three of them saw Lhalu standing behind Lhalu and remembered that he once had access to key information, they instantly realized how the information had been leaked!
Lin Yuan’s question had been directed at Hollow Earth, Rock Underworld, and Mountain Furrow but was answered by Demon Star instead, causing the three of them to lose the opportunity to respond.
Lin Yuan did not have the time to care about how these Samsara Realm Dictators thought. His concern was for the entire subterranean world’s safety and whether he could gain two more Afterlife Realm Dictators for his imminent fight against Tower Canon.
“I want to know clear information about the Earth’s Sacred Fruit. If any of you dares to lie to me, I will turn them into a source totem and make them part of my collection!”
Lin Yuan was still controlling the black spikes to save the Turning Wheel Realm Dictators who had been trapped in the Earth Ancestral Palace.
Lin Yuan’s threat was very simple, but none of them dared to doubt the truth of what he said.
Rock Underworld had answered Lin Yuan’s previous question. Now, whoever answered Lin Yuan’s new question would gain the most favor from him.
Both Hollow Earth and Mountain Furrow knew the origins of the Earth’s Sacred Fruit and hastily said, “Lord, the subterranean world has more treasures besides the Earth’s Sacred Fruit. There is also the Ten Thousand River Rock Willow and Mine-Birthing Well.”
“The Earth Ancestral Palace is built right on top of the Ten Thousand River Rock Willow. You will discover a large hole once you raze the Earth Ancestral Palace. You will be able to see the Ten Thousand River Rock Willow through this hole.”
“The Mine-Birthing Well is below the Mine-Birthing Well, and the Earth’s Sacred Fruit is rooted in the Mine-Birthing Well. The Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s sprout is already beginning to climb out of the Mine-Birthing Well.”
“It even has two bright yellow crystallized flowers growing on it. The flowers consume all earth-elemental energy in front of them. That’s why we call it the flower of disaster!”
After listening to Hollow Earth and Mountain Furrow’s descriptions, Lin Yuan now knew the exact locations of the Ten Thousand River Rock Willow, Mine-Birthing Well, and Earth’s Sacred Fruit.
Given the positions of the three items, they had to have close links to each other. Otherwise, they would not be positioned in such close quarters!
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit had taken root in the Mine-Birthing Well.
The Mine-Birthing Well produced mineral veins intermittently. This ability would produce a certain amount of earth-elemental energy intermittently as well.
The Mine-Birthing Well was a natural incubator that aided the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s growth.
He now knew their exact positions and was certain that the Mine-Birthing Well was not stronger than him. Moreover, the Abyss Red Lotus’ roots were not done tearing apart the Earth Ancestral Palace’s structure. It still needed some time before it could save all of the Turning Wheel Realm Dictators.
As such, Lin Yuan decided to ask Hollow Earth, Rock Underworld, and Mountain Furrow about how they ended up under the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control.
A plant that was rooted in the Mine-Birthing Well could not even move its body.
Even if it was stronger than the three of them, it would not be able to catch them if they fled.
Lin Yuan asked Demon Star, who looked like she had more to say, “Why did you say that the three of them are under the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control? Did you uncover something?”
Demon Star nodded fearfully.
Demon Star did not know the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s exact name but had seen Hollow Earth, Mountain Furrow, and Rock Underworld enter the forbidden area that was the hole in the ground. She was curious about why they periodically entered the hole in the ground.
Each time they emerged from the hole, their minds would be in a mess for some time.
There was once when the door to the hole in the door was not closed tightly after the three of them entered. Thus, Demon Star stuck her head in to look.
That was when she saw the three lords she served kneeling in front of a flower as they locked the fluids that were oozing out of the flower’s stem. The flower was also communicating with the three of them in the subterranean world’s language.
Luckily, Demon Star’s source totem ability was to retract her aura. Otherwise, even if she managed to escape the detection of Mountain Furrow, Rock Underworld, and Hollow Earth, who were not in their right minds, the flower would definitely have noticed her!
Demon Star had already betrayed Hollow Earth. Clearly, this humanoid lifeform controlling the black spikes was her own hope of safety. As long as he protected her, she would be safe!
Hence, Demon Star ignored the other three and told Lin Yuan everything that she had seen.
From this, Lin Yuan could be sure that the three of them were indeed under the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control.
It was likely that the Earth’s Sacred Fruit controlled the three of them using its fluids.
It was likely that the three of them had treasured the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s fluids at first. But after drinking them, they found themselves under the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control.
This method of using drugs to control others was very simple yet effective.
Many factions in the main world used this method to control spirit qi professionals who had yet to comprehend Willpower Runes. This method had led to the ruin of numerous spirit qi professionals.
Who would have thought that the method used to control low-rank spirit qi professionals in the main world would have successfully taken control of three pinnacle Samsara Realm Dictators in the subterranean world?
Demon Star’s words caused Mountain Furrow, Rock Underworld, and Hollow Earth’s faces to go red as they were wholly humiliated.
The three of them had been lauded as kings of the subterranean world.
But now, these lifeforms were aware that these kings were nothing more than jokes.
Hollow Earth was the first to confess, “Lord, it’s true that the three of us are under the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control. When we first discovered the three treasures, we had intended to take one each. But we failed to reach an agreement. Eventually, we decided to share the three treasures and build the Earth Ancestral Palace on top of them.”
