Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 122
Chapter 122: Chapter 122
This time, Sui Xiong really went mad.
He was roaring, though even he had no idea what this roaring meant. Each time he roared, he hit the Goddess of Ocean with all the strength he had, or even more. Sui Xiong’s firm and strong body couldn’t withstand such power, and he soon got many tiny cracks.
The Goddess of Ocean never thought Sui Xiong could suddenly become so crazy. This madness was totally different from the mania Sui Xiong showed earlier. Now he showed a sort of neuroticism. Sui Xiong had lost every bit of reason he had. He was purely enraged and releasing his anger.
She could tell that the huge jellyfish God was on the brink of going mad, and that maybe soon, there would be one more crazy demogorgon who was just like all its predecessors. One who made destroying the whole world and killing every living creature their ultimate goal. They were disliked by both the kind Gods and the evil Gods. The Goddess of Ocean didn’t care about what Sui Xiong might turn into, but she would never be willing to become an enemy that was hated by a demogorgon.
The demogorgon didn’t need a reason to kill, but once it held a grudge against you, it would risk everything to track you down and make trouble. A demogorgon’s existence relied on destruction, but the being itself could never be destroyed. Even if a demogorgon was sealed tightly away, it would somehow manage to escape.
Through the ages, there was a rule that with every birth of a demogorgon, came the death of the one that ever infuriated it or even drove it to madness. The Goddess of Ocean felt that she would also fit into this rule. Therefore, she would not allow the huge jellyfish God to go crazy!
She did not want to admit that she was feeling frightened at this moment, but she was frightened by Sui Xiong’s resoluteness. Watching Sui Xiong yelling crazily and hitting his enemy with rage and in disorder, she was indeed afraid.
The Goddess of Ocean could even imagine what would happen next: the body of the huge jellyfish would suddenly collapse, and then the power that could lead the world to destruction would make a hole in the center of the jellyfish’s body. As soon as the hole was made, the energy of destruction would continually flow out, and turn the jellyfish into an existence that was impossible to imagine. This energy would contaminate the world around them.
Now, the jellyfish had not completely changed into a demogorgon yet. But it would certainly become more crazy due to the misery and anger in its heart. Still, it would keep a last shred of reason in its mind, and with the help of that last shred of reason, it would go to find its enemy. Because of the energy of the destruction, the millions of worlds were all transparent to it, and defenseless before it. Thus, it could go freely and directly into its enemies’ Holy Kingdoms, and then…
Then what?! There was no then!
When that time came, the Goddess of Ocean would die, and her holy Kingdom would be destroyed too, and it would be impossible for her to be reborn. So as for what would happen next, it had nothing to do with her!
“Sh*t! Who on earth has infuriated him?” she murmured while struggling to withstand Sui Xiong’s more and more intensified attacks.
At this moment, she got a message from her ally, the God of Storm, who planned to build a divine department of natural disaster.
“You have really come up with a fantastic idea!” she said in response.
“Yes, I think so too. Still, your followers have done a good job. Currently we only need to get rid of these barriers. Then we can go directly after those people,” the God of Storm said happily. “As for the damn God of Justice, as long as we don’t kill the people ourselves, he cannot possibly protect them from being killed. And it is he that has made such a rule.”
Meanwhile, Sui Xiong began to brandish all his tentacles and heavily attack the huge water element. On the physical side, this strike only hit off a part of the body of the water element. Since there was water everywhere, the water element could restore its body simply by absorbing water from around it. However on the mental side, this strike was instilled with divine power. It pained the Goddess of Ocean, especially when the connection between this incarnation and her real body was so close. Thus, her real body also felt the extreme pain. She almost passed out.
However, a God could never pass out.
After making such a heavy strike, Sui Xiong himself was also heavily injured; even the tentacle that first hit the enemy was broken. But Sui Xiong was in a fit and couldn’t feel pain or other feelings; or rather, he could actually feel the pain, but the pain would only make him more crazy. For him, the pain could even make him feel better.
Ray was dead. He died while performing Sui Xiong’s order. Actually, at that time, Sui Xiong only casually gave the order that Ray should help to stop the sea race from intruding the land, and make the refugees leave safely.
He really said it casually, without thinking. Ray took it seriously. He kept fighting with the sea race, and didn’t retreat even if there was only one of him left on the battlefield. And he didn’t get proud after killing a huge number of enemies; he fought hard until the last minute.
He even came to say goodbye to me, and felt guilty since he failed to perform my order.
Thinking this, Sui Xiong once again began to crazily attack the Goddess of Ocean, his tentacles breaking one by one. Due to the huge amount of energy each tentacle had inside, the broken tentacles fell into pieces and vanished instead of being washed away by the water.
Could he feel the pain? Of course he could. But Sui Xiong was manic, and the pain soothed him.
Even though Ray was severely injured, and there were many holes and spears in his body, he still worried about the safety of the refugees and the order I gave him until the last minute…
The huge jellyfish gave another crazy howl, and an extremely powerful energy began to spread into the immediate surrounding area. Tens of miles of seawater was froze, and before it froze completely it suddenly exploded due to the energy, and fell into pieces. It became falling snow. The seawater collided with itself and created a sound that was as loud as a landslide or tsunami.
With the sound echoing, not only was the incarnation of the Goddess of Ocean, the water element, heavily shattered, but the shivering Haimu Sarah and Tim Saar were severely injured. Sui Xiong didn’t care if he hurt his own peers, and every strike caused a huge explosion on a large scale. It was as if he meant to make a hole out of the Main Plate, a hole that led to the underworld, so he could try to get Ray’s soul back.
“Hello, I think something is going wrong over your side,” the God of Storm said. He didn’t get any reply from his ally, so he made some observation and was surprised to see Sui Xiong’s behaviour. He immediately sent a message to the Goddess of Ocean, saying, “What is going on? You said your enemy is an easy guy to deal with. Why are you being hit by him instead? Is what I am seeing an illusion?”
“F*ck an illusion!” the Goddess of Ocean finally managed to pull herself together and cursed. “That bastard has gone crazy! He is going to become a demogorgon!”
“What?!” the God of Storm was also someone who had seen a lot and done a lot, but as soon as he heard the word, he was so terrified that even his real body that was in his own Holy Kingdom shivered. “Demogorgon?! Who drove him so crazy?”
The God of Storm knew clearly how dangerous a demogorgon was, so he immediately asked a key question. Everyone knew that when a demogorgon was born, it would definitely kill at least one of its enemies. “Who drove it crazy?” was a key question.
“Who do think his enemy is?” the Goddess of Ocean said. “It’s either you or me.”
Hearing this, the God of Storm started shivering all over and asked: “You or me?! Which one of us then?!”
“If you really want to know, ask him! He is right here!”
The God of Storm was not stupid; he knew he would be killed on the spot if he went to ask Sui Xiong! Although he was not sure who his enemy really was, he thought that there was a bigger chance that the Goddess of Ocean was Sui Xiong’s enemy. But if he went to ask Sui Xiong, he might become Sui Xiong’s enemy!
Ally? Cooperation? Who would care about these sort of things now! Everyone knows that one should always put his own interest first, and a God must know this as well!
If they two were kind Gods, they might have helped each other; or if they were disciplined Gods, they would abide by the agreement they made together. Though the two were evil Gods, under this critical moment, they were being nice to each other; and though they didn’t try to hurt each other, it was impossible for them to help each other!
Meanwhile, Sui Xiong was getting crazier and crazier, and his attack was getting stronger and stronger, so the Goddess of Ocean found it more difficult to withstand Sui Xiong’s attack. Then she thought for a while, and directly cut off the connection between her real body and her incarnation, even she knew that doing so would cause damage to herself.
The result was like a man who had cut off one of his arms. The pain was so intense that the Goddess of Ocean was rolling on the ground. Still, as the saying goes: better a little loss than a long sorrow. It was better to cut off an arm than to be cut apart one piece of meat at a time by someone else. Besides, no matter which way she chose, she was bound to lose her incarnation.
The Goddess of Ocean cut off the connection and then fled back to her Holy Kingdom, leaving the water element behind to be hit by Sui Xiong. The incarnation had already become too feeble to withstand Sui Xiong’s attack, and without the energy that was continuously being transported from the real body, it immediately collapsed. Sui Xiong hit it one last time, and it immediately became water.
Sui Xiong was stunned, and had no idea why his opponent, who was very powerful a few minutes ago, suddenly became a piece of crap that had no combat effectiveness at all. Then he suddenly realized what had happened, and got into the water. He absorbed the shattered body of the water element into his stomach, gaining great strength. Then his huge body became even larger. He looked like an enormous water ball that with countless tentacles; it was almost comical. But the face of the water ball was extremely terrifying; no one dared joke about it.
Sui Xiong managed to defeat the incarnation of the female tyrant of the sea! He even make the Goddess of Ocean abandon her incarnation and run away!
“It actually tasted pretty good,” Sui Xiong laughed. Then he turned to the Haimu Sarah and Tim Saar, who were still fighting with each other. He waved one of his tentacles which was as wide a hill, and hit the divine core of Tim Saar. The core was shattered.
“Haimu Sarah, don’t waste your time. Eat him and you will recover soon!” he said coldly. “I have something else to do and don’t have time to take care of you. Be careful!”
“You… too,” Haimu Saar said. He was a bit clumsy, but could feel Sui Xiong’s extremely intense intention of killing.
Sui Xiong nodded and scanned around, finding the astonished God of Storm who was standing above the cloud.
“Good, there is still one that has not fled! Ray…don’t worry, I will kill them all!”
He brandished his tentacles.
