Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 123
Chapter 123: Chapter 123
The “wind” was something that would never leave any trace, either when it came or left. Maybe it was because the God of Storm had gotten so used to being arrogant, he didn’t even realize that he should immediately run away until Sui Xiong targeted him.
However, it was too late to run away now!
Sui Xiong brandished one of his extremely huge tentacles and flung it into the cloud, and made a sound that was as loud as thunder. The sea race either on the bay or in the sea all felt dizzy when hearing the sound, and the feeble ones instantly collapsed or sat on the ground. Some even sank into the water.
The God of Storm didn’t have the time to think of what to do. He immediately showed his incarnation that had been hiding inside the cloud all this time; it was an amazingly huge wind element. When the wind element was in a state of rest, it had no form. But once it began to move, it would become a tornado that rotated at high speeds. Besides, countless black clouds were swirling inside it, as did the roaring thunder and terrifying lightning. This all made the winter element look very frightening and magnificent.
Normally, Sui Xiong would not probe the enemy if he looked magnificent, but now he was so angry that he could not think at all. He flung his tentacles right at the winter element without thinking.
The unlucky God of Storm was hit.
He never thought there would be a God that would do things without following the rules! How could he hit me without finishing his curse? Why did he initiate the attack while he was still cursing?
The huge tentacle hit the God of Storm who hadn’t reacted in time. He almost passed out, and half of the thunder and lightning inside his body had gone. Even the rotating tornado became a bit slower.
“Seriously!” the God of Storm shouted and was hit again by Sui Xiong’s tentacles.
“You!” he was hit again.
“Being!” once again.
“Ridiculous!” he was hit heavily by Sui Xiong again.
Sui Xiong didn’t give any chance for the God of Storm to counterattack. The God of Storm was not able to make any defensive moves. He was only congregating his power enough to stand Sui Xiong’s harsh attack.
One time, two times… 10 times, 20 times… 100 times, 200 times… the sound of thunder never stopped, not even for a second.
At last, the God of Storm realized that he could no longer keep his incarnation; he also understood why the God of Sea, who was much stronger than him, would leave her incarnation behind to be shattered by Sui Xiong, and run away.
Who said the damn jellyfish God was going to become crazy? It was already crazy!
Luckily, the connection between his real body and his incarnation was not as strong as that of the Goddess of Ocean. If he abandoned his incarnation, it would not do any harm to his soul.
So his real body could still sit calmly on the throne that was made of storm, thunder, and lighting, and contemplate.
“Why the jellyfish is behaving like this? It just lost one follower. Does it really need to make such a fuss!” the God of Storm looked at his empty Holy Kingdom and shook his head. “I almost have no followers, and I still managed to make it on my own until today…”
As an evil God that could bring on natural disasters, the God of Storm had almost no followers. Only some people who were extremely crazy or were frenzied about the violence and destruction would believe and follow him. Thus, although he was a powerful God, there weren’t many followers in his Holy Kingdom, which made it look very desolate and bleak.
Those violent men could not possibly understand the depression their God was feeling after he was heavily hit by Sui Xiong, and began to fight against each other after seeing the God of Storm calmly sitting in his throne.
Compared with him, the Goddess of Ocean received a better treatment from her followers. This female tyrant was also the guardian of the marine creatures, so apart from the evil marine creatures, there were also many neutral, or even kind creatures. When seeing their severely injured Goddess come back, they immediately gathered around her and asked how she was. Although they couldn’t help relieve her pain, she was much more calm.
“I am so happy that I have these followers!” she exclaimed with a bit of satisfaction.
In the human world, Sui Xiong was feeling rather gloomy.
After killing the incarnation of the God of Storm, Sui Xiong ate his remains, and then his body made a sound of roaring thunder, and was surrounded by countless strokes of lightning. A short while later, both the sound and the lightning faded, and his huge body began to shrink. At last, his body was around five meters in diameter. Still he looked very huge; but before, he was as big as a black cloud. Compared with that, he looked much smaller.
Sui Xiong flew back to the ground and stopped beside Ray.
Ray was lying still in a pool of blood. The storm failed to wash away the blood on him and his wound became white, since he had been soaking in the rain for a long time. He was penetrated by at least ten long spears, and his whole body caved in due to the hit of the magic flying bomb. His tall and straight body no longer existed any more. One could even see his bones among his wounds; the bones were all broken.
Seeing this, Sui Xiong almost burst into tears. This poor thing had sacrificed himself to perform Sui Xiong’s order, and to protect the refugees.
Seeing Ray’s wounds, Sui Xiong could imagine what Ray had gone through. He was fighting with countless enemies all by himself and finally was killed!
Sui Xiong was trembling and trying very hard to restrain his urge to kill all the sea race. Then he spread his soul’s tentacles and began to search for Ray’s soul.
“It is still not too late, I may still find some trace of his soul, maybe he is still…”
He was talking to himself, trying to comfort himself in this way.
But he was disappointed by the reality.
He had been trying very hard to search for Ray’s soul, he managed to find some trace; but still he failed to find Ray’s soul.
“Could it be possible that he has gone to the underworld? Or to hell?” Sui Xiong was contemplating. He drew some very complicated trajectories in the air with his tentacles, trying to summon back Ray’s soul from the underworld by using Ray’s body as the medium.
“No matter if you have gone to the underworld or to hell, come back, please!”
Sui Xiong’s powerful energy was shining as brightly as a moon. The energy slowly spread out and even froze the seawater in the distance. Seeing this extremely powerful energy, the sea race were so terrified that they began to tremble and hurriedly ran away, hoping their fins could be a bit stronger, tails longer, claws more powerful, so they could get away faster.
Sui Xiong was not bothered by the terrified sea race at all. He was focusing on his magic spell, and searching for Ray’s soul in the underworld, hell, and every possible place a certain soul might go to with the help of his magnificent will and powerful magic. All the powerful existences in this world were surprised by Sui Xiong’s behaviour and had no idea what Sui Xiong—a God they had never seen before—really wanted.
But Sui Xiong was just searching for Ray’s soul.
After a long while, the light of his magic faded. At the gloomy bay, there was a huge jellyfish feeling rather frustrated.
He failed to find Ray’s soul, he didn’t find any clue at all!
He thought Ray had gone to the underworld, but he didn’t find him there; he thought Ray had gone to the hell, and didn’t find him there either; he then searched for Ray’s soul in the Shadow World; Ray was not there. He then searched again in the Star World Soul World; he even searched for Ray’s soul in the heaven where the kind were, and the Element World that was at the outside of the Main Plate where a soul would sometimes go by accident. Still he couldn’t find Ray’s soul.
At last, he was desperate!
Maybe… Ray’s soul had already disappeared. The transparent figure I saw just now might be Ray’s last trace in this world…
Thinking of this, his body began to tremble. Suddenly, he came up with an idea, and he was so excited that he even jumped up.
It doesn’t matter that his soul has disappeared, as long as I have got his body! It is not the soul, but the body that is the most important thing! I can definitely bring Ray back to life with his body, and the memory left in his brain! Even if his brain is dead, I can rebuild his character by using the thoughts left in his body!
He quickly got rid of all the long spears on Ray’s body, and shrouded Ray with his tentacles. Then he activated his magic and began to heal Ray’s heavily damaged body.
Treating a dead body would cost dozens of times of more magic energy than usual. Soon, Sui Xiong finally managed to heal Ray’s body.
Then he began to heal Ray’s brain.
Unsurprisingly, Ray’s brain was already dead, and it was impossible for Sui Xiong to bring it back to life. Even if Sui Xiong struggled to input some electric current that a healthy human brain had into Ray’s brain, nothing happened.
Sui Xiong didn’t give up and continued to do the magic spell, trying to gather all the thoughts left in Ray’s body and build a new character.
The new character was in fact a substitute for a soul, but it could not provide vitality. But he only needed to make some lollipops to provide the vitality to his body…
“I am really good at making lollipops, I even learned how to draw a lollipop from my teacher! When you wake up, I will make thirty different kinds of lollipops for you, so you can taste a new flavor everyday!”
Sui Xiong was murmuring. Then he activated his magic energy, trying to extract the thoughts left in Ray’s body.
Countless light spots appeared around him, and Sui Xiong was shocked by this scene.
“How… how come there are so many light spots?!”
He should have remembered that in this battlefield, countless lives had been consumed, and they all left their thoughts here. Due to Sui Xiong’s magic spell, all the thoughts had been activated, and then became a river of light spots.
Sui Xiong knew that it was impossible for him to spot the thoughts that belonged to Ray among all the messy light spots.
He was stunned.
What should I do?
