Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 126
The trident of the Goddess of Ocean was named The Wrath of the Waves. It was a famous great weapon. It was the object created when God created the world, and had been deeply buried in the sea, condensing the strength of the holy mission of “Ocean”. It was said that when the Goddess of Ocean was still a demigod, she once held this great weapon and separated the sea, and repelled the other six demigods of the deep sea. That was how he won the supreme throne.
After her official apotheosizing, she spent a great deal of time condensing the armor on her with divine power. She had not completed it until today, so it had not yet been given a name.
But the power of this armor was unquestionable. She had tried in private to use the Wrath of the Waves to stab this armor; it left only a small wound. Although she did not use too much force at the time, if it was able to endure to the power of the Wrath of the Waves, its solidity could be sufficiently proved.
At this moment, the Goddess of Ocean was wearing her holy armor, so she had a little more confidence. In the face of the menacing and aggressive Sui Xiong, she didn’t withdraw or concede, but waved the Wrath of the Waves, and confronted him head on.
With a thud, the tough tentacles and sturdy shells of Sui Xiong did not work in defense, and they were immediately pierced by her powerful gun. The massive force immediately destroyed his body. Centering on the pierced wound, numerous cracks spread rapidly toward other body parts, and infinite beams of blue light overflowed from the crack and turned into torrents.
At first glance, he seemed to have become a pierced water ball, and it seemed that the next second he would be broken by the high water pressure, and torn apart.
The Goddess of Ocean could not help but smile. But the smile quickly froze on her face: Sui Xiong did not care about the injury. He didn’t retreat but went forward, and took advantage of this opportunity to pull her closer to him. Tentacles, still full of scars, fluttered and wrapped around her tightly.
“Oh, huh, huh… ah, ha-ha-ha!”
The face of the giant jellyfish, which was burnt and scorched and full of horrible cracks, showed a crazy grin. “I have grabbed you! I have grabbed you. I have grabbed you!”
The Goddess of Ocean only felt cold air rush from her feet to the top of her head, and could not help but tremble. Although she did not know, just a few days ago, Sui Xiong had said the same thing to the God of Storm. She could feel the murderous arrogance in his voice.
After all, she was a God with much fighting experience. Especially when she defeated the demigods; she had many bloody battles in that process. The God of Storm could not even compare to her, because he focused on bullying the weak. Seeing that the situation was wrong, she immediately shouted, and her huge body suddenly shrank. In the blink of an eye, she became as small as an ordinary human.
However, as if Sui Xiong guessed that she would do this, he shrank his tentacles without hesitation at the same speed as her, even though his body was still so big. As a result, although the Goddess of Ocean became smaller, she was still entangled with many tentacles, and the situation did not change.
No, there were still changes: those tentacles seized the opportunity, and wrapped her tighter.
“Ahahahahaha! Ahahahahaha!” Sui Xiong crazily laughed, with pleasure and madness. His voice seemed to suggest that a blazing fire was turning his enemies into ashes.
Although the holy armor on her body was very strong and reliable, the Goddess of Ocean became more and more uneasy. she shouted and turned into a giant again, fully mobilized the power of the Wrath of the Waves, and set off a turbulent torrent into the body of Sui Xiong. She wanted to rip him apart before this damn jellyfish cast spells!
But just when she had only mobilized a little power, she heard the words of Sui Xiong, transmitted by his mind.
“Noble Goddess of Ocean, do you know how the jellyfish hunts?”
The Goddess of Ocean suddenly felt terrified and struggled to break away from those tentacles.
However, it was too late.
“It’s a poisonous thorn! Ah hahaha!”
With the savage laughter, countless poisonous thorns darted from the tentacles that encircled the Goddess of Ocean. Although most of them were blocked by the armor, in the end, many of them still found a lot cracks in the armor, and stabbed in.
This was a weapon he had never used before. It was also the last resort of this jellyfish body.
Almost all jellyfish were poisonous, regardless of their size or type, except for some variations in special environments. Their tentacles contained stinging cells that secreted a variety of different poisons. Weak poison would make people feel a pain and numbness in the hands, which explained the Chinese name of jellyfish, meaning ‘a stinger in the sea.’ Strong ones secreted by jellyfish as big as a ship’s bow could kill dozens of people. This was their most powerful weapon, and it was also the true means of survival of this seemingly delicate creature.
The jellyfish that Sui Xiong was attached to was certainly poisonous, and as he continued to strengthen this body, the poison also continued to strengthen. Whenever he had realized and made breakthroughs, the poison would generate new changes and add new features and powers. Until today, even he himself did not know how great this poison would be.
Because of his good character, he never tried this cruel trick. However, at this moment, he had extreme anger and hatred. He didn’t care whether or not the trick was cruel! Besides, he really had no other option. In the battle with the God of Storm, he almost used up all his energy. Now the jellyfish was just an empty framework.
It was absolutely impossible for him to fight against the Goddess of Ocean for long, or to break into her kingdom and kill her. So on the way there, he already made up his mind.
Go up, entangle her, and use poisonous thorn.
If this doesn’t work, then use soul attack.
He knew that there must be many gods watching at this moment. He did not know what the consequences would be if he exposed his true body.
But he didn’t care!
The big events in the world were nothing more than a death. People paid each other back in death, so why couldn’t he do that?
Even Brother Bao, who was once a trivial worker in a brothel, also said that loyalty is important for brothers. He dared to risk his head to save his old friend Mao XVIII. I, brother Xiong, am also a senior intellectual who is educated, and work in the artistic industry. To put it in a way that sounds good, I am a painter and a talented man, so how can I not dare to die!
I will have no wounds other than a bowl-size scar, and after eighteen years, I will be a hero again!
With such determination, and faced with the powerful holy gun of the Goddess of Ocean, he did not panic, but became happy. He rushed directly against the trident and let his body be pierced, seizing the opportunity to approach the Goddess of Ocean.
Then he waved his tentacles and tied her up firmly.
The Goddess of Ocean’s reactions were so rapid that it almost scared him. However, once his tentacles tied his opponent, they would be shortened and become smaller and smaller even without him wanting to cast his own spell. It was all instinct; but the result was that the Goddess of Ocean became smaller and bigger in vain.
Sui Xiong seized this chance, maybe his last one, to strengthen all the poisonous thorns.
Then, he stabbed her with all of the thorns!
Although fewer than one percent of these thorns were lucky enough to cross the gap in the armor and pierce the body of the Goddess of Ocean, it would be enough for Sui Xiong if even one thorn hit the target.
Without hesitation, he injected all the poison he had accumulated for a long time into the body of the Goddess of Ocean, leaving nothing at all.
Then he was finally exhausted, and couldn’t keep hold of his opponent. He collapsed.
If he had not been stabbed by the powerful gun, the Wrath of Waves, and could barely hold back by relying on the pain, perhaps he would flow anywhere like a pool of mud. Or perhaps he would be drowsy and sleepy due to relaxation.
Instead he was lying in the water, stretched his few tentacles that remained, and allowed the body to be skewered by a golden trident, as if he was on a barbecue stall. He was too tired to move.
On the other side, the Goddess of Ocean was plunged into endless fear and suffering.
Sui Xiong’s poison was no joke!
Coincidentally, Sui Xiong only attacked enemies that were closer to him. He first attacked the God of Storm and then the Goddess of Ocean. His poison was really ineffective on the God of Storm, but miraculously effective on the Goddess of Ocean.
The real body of the God of Storm was just a gust of wind wrapped in thunder, and was not afraid of poison at all. The body of the Goddess of Ocean was an aquatic animal: a mermaid. In the face of Sui Xiong’s poison, she was defeated.
The body of a god that was supposedly invulnerable to all poisons couldn’t resist Sui Xiong’s miraculous poison. Various kind of poisons wildly raged in the body of the Goddess of Ocean, destroying everything that could be destroyed. Muscles, blood, bones, nerves, internal organs. Even her supernatural powers, divinity, her soul. all were eroded by this poison. There was no exception.
The resulting pain made the Goddess of Ocean almost crazy.
Unknown kinds of poison were showing effects together. In an instant, it was like she experienced all the tortures on earth. There was pain from the soul to the body. It was not only pain, but all sorts of unpleasant feelings like numbness, burning, itching, cold, heat, stickiness, stiffness…
For a while, it was impossible to describe it, and all the feelings were combined into one scream.
She screamed frantically, threw out her weapons, and fell into the stream of water, twitching, tumbling, and dying. She only hated the vitality that prevented her from dying in this circumstance.
Sui Xiong looked at the miserable appearance of the Goddess of Ocean and could not help but smile happily.
But the Gods watching the battle were all scared at the moment.
This big jellyfish was too powerful and vicious! It seemed that the Goddess of Ocean had better die!
Seeing two strongmen fighting, with neither intact, some Gods became greedy and wanted to take advantage of this chance to defeat them both. But the God of Justice coughed coldly, and dispelled these kinds of thoughts.
Obviously, the God of Justice is standing on the side of the big jellyfish this time. Let’s not enrage the madman who was able to attack the supreme place to hit the wheel of order, and challenge the great God!
After a while, Sui Xiong recovered first. Although the long golden trident was still in him, without the control of the Goddess of Ocean, the power of the Wrath of the Waves did not show effect. They only caused ordinary injuries.
He stroked the few remaining tentacles and allowed himself to float slowly. He clenched his teeth to pull out the Wrath of the Waves, and directed it towards the Goddess of Ocean. In order to make sure he’d kill her with only one blow, he also attached many tricks on it. The tip of the golden trident became dark green, which was a bad sign.
He was still laughing wildly with a strange tone, and felt like a bow that had been pulled too tight, that could break at any time.
“Cry! Yell! Then you will die!”
