Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 128
Sui Xiong became invisible, galloped in the sky, and flew towards Gars City.
Most of his injuries were healed, and he also carried a huge amount of wealth with him.
He did not know whether this would be a war remedy or a trophy, nor would he be bothered to ponder this boring question. At this moment, in his mind, he thought about issues such as Gods, beliefs, holy missions, and so on.
Watching the tragic death of Goddess of Ocean and personally guiding the birth of the daughter of the sea, Ariel, he was filled with emotion. There were countless thoughts coming one after another, but in chaos; as if he were faced with the legendary ball of yarn in the legend that made you the king of Asia Minor if you could disentangle it. But he couldn’t cut it by using a sword, like Alexander the Great.
Numerous thoughts lingered in his heart, confusing his thinking. But as he gradually moved closer to Gars City, and could see the port still filled with traces of fierce battles and blood on the corpses that had not yet dried up, these thoughts were quickly calmed down. The left only sadness in his mind.
A moment later, he landed next to Ray’s body.
“I have taken revenge for you.” He sat on the ground without dignity, speaking in a muffled voice. “I killed the God of Storm who proposed a bad idea, and I destroyed his Holy Kingdom and devoured his body. The Goddess of Ocean, who launched the invasion carried out by the maritime race, also died. Although she committed a suicide, I put forth a lot of effort to kill her. As for the ordinary people of the maritime race, I think you probably won’t care about them. And I’m too weak to chase and kill them one by one.”
He thought for a moment, and he turned his eyes to the square where the battle had gradually come to an end. “To be honest, the God of Marsh and the Goddess of Harvest are also your enemies. As well as the Shadow Devil, who previously made trouble. Also the God of Aristocracy and the God of Conspiracies. I will never let them go. In the future, there must be a chance to kill all of them!
“But it’s okay for now. I’m really tired. I need to take a rest for a while. Anyway, those guilty ones and I are all long-living. A little rest for ten or eight years, or even a little longer, presumably doesn’t matter. There won’t be such a big coincidence that they just die when I take a rest, right?”
He smiled and continued. “I just had a big fight. Now, when I think about it, it’s actually a little regrettable. Maybe I have gone too far? This war made two Gods fall, and I’m afraid it will affect a lot of innocent people!
“Well, if you were still alive, you would probably say, ‘Your Majesty, don’t think about that; you should think about your safety first. If there is anyone that is wrongly killed, it’s the fault of the one who started the war.’ Well, you would definitely say so. Although you are not very long-winded, you are very knowledgeable and you are a prince!
“When it comes to your origin, I hadn’t even had time to ask you. What is the origin of the name Leon Igor? What country are you from? I’m not familiar with the things in human society!
“Oh! I wanted to wait for you to tell me that when you were in a good mood. I have a long life, and it wouldn’t take long before you entered the legendary realm, because you are so strong. Then, you would also have an eternal life, and we would have enough time to talk. And perhaps one day, you would be confused and old, and be bragging about how brave you when you were young, all day long…
“Then, even your children and future generations would probably find you to be long-winded, wouldn’t they? But I would not, because I am a God! I did not feel bored when I repaired the submarine at the bottom of the sea for so long. How could I be bored when you told me stories?
“Oh my dear, among my believers, Gerrard can’t say anything, even if there is something in his. His eloquence was terrible. Palin is a nerd, and he certainly has a common language with Olian, but perhaps not with me. Satan was busy researching spells all day long. Oh, he was killed too… even his soul was snatched away. After I take a rest, I’ll snatch it back. Maybe I will also cure him slowly, so that he won’t suffer any residual injury. Rhode…I have always felt that guy is very timid, and I’m afraid that he will not dare to chat with me. Wall is an industrious person, and I don’t know if he has the habit of chatting with people. Olian may have no time to chat, because she is a city-owner. Steele…well, I’m afraid if I chat too much with her, she will think about having sex with me…
“Yes, I also know a few dragons, but unfortunately they do not believe in me. Also, I should exclude the strange boy and the girl who like to get up late. Snowflake is really a good girl with an artistic feeling. I think we must have a common language, and if I have the opportunity, I will introduce her to you.
“Didn’t you always dream of becoming a knight? I remember you once said that the most powerful knights rode dragons and carried powerful weapons. When they went out, they glittered. Whenever they went, people cheered. In fact, I have giant dragons here; as for powerful weapons, although I do not have them now, it would not be difficult to grab some. Getting a gold-glittering effect is a matter of minutes; and with your qualities, you could have attracted a lot of cheers. You lack nothing!
“Well, you lack one thing.”
Sui Xiong deeply sighed and was so frustrated that even his tentacles strained down. “You have passed away…
“Ray, I am very useless as a boss, right? Other priests cast a spell of resurrection, it as easily as they eat and drink. Not to mention doing that personally; even a medium-level priest can do that. But what about me? It took a lot of time and effort, but I still can’t resurrect you…
“What is the use of being able to fight and being cruel! What kind of God am I? I can only destroy? I can’t make things? I’m simply a devil!”
“Oh! It’s a real misfortune for you to have followed me! I lost the treasure that was most difficult to get. You were a solitary thief, but you finally guarded the camps, and babysat, and finally you were killed by a group of people. If you were alive, you would also sigh that you have had the misfortune of following the wrong person.
“It’s a mistake that you followed me, because I am a deplorable boss!
“I also know that I am deplorable. I’m not decisive, I’m not visionary, I like to talk nonsense all day long. I’m really bad compared to other, decisive people!
“Oh, when it comes to decisiveness, I remember things from the novels that I read in the past. According to them, people with a good background, profound hatred, and self-exertion would start to make a history after following a talented sage. But how come you died before you had time to make a history?
“Shoot! If we were written in a story, it would definitely be about deplorable people, who started to write stories, but failed to be popular even after decades, and were useless in their forties. And your death would certainly be a ridiculous scenario, because you would have much left to do!”
Sui Xiong couldn’t help but smile. After a while, he sighed, “Unfortunately, life is not a story after all.”
“It would have been good if we were in a story. In that case, I would go to the author of the story and, by bribing him, force him to change this to a scenario in which you are revived.”
Speaking of this, he finally had nothing more to say, but sighed deeply. He became more and more frustrated and finally could not help but cry again.
Suddenly he heard a hearty laugh.
Alerted, he immediately leapt up, kept Ray’s body behind him, and became defensive.
A light shimmered like a curtain, and a raggedly-dressed bulky man, like a beggar, appeared in front of him. The man was carrying an aggressive axe, making him seem by no means like a good man.
Although he smiled innocently at the moment, Sui Xiong was still distressed. He had carefully examined this area, but could not previously find this man. And it was scary that he didn’t notice the him, who was close, until he appeared on his own initiative. This person’s strength was simply incredible!
The man said with a chuckle, “You are a good man, because you cherish love and righteousness. You cry for your brother, so you are a hero!”
“Who are you?!” Sui Xiong couldn’t help but accuse. “Did we know each other before?”
“We know each other, of course!” said the bulky man, laughing. “Before, when your brother was fighting here, I looked aside. The tower collapsed and the rocks flew. If it were not for my protecting him, he would have been hit by the stones.”
“Then how could you not rescue him!” Sui Xiong was surprised, then he roared.
The man scratched his head, and said, “Who says I did not save him?”
He opened his wide left hand, where there was a ball of light in his palm. It faintly reflected the figure of a sleeping knight. Looking closely, countless tiny spots of light could be seen seeping into his body, making his image gradually clearer.
“Ray?!” Sui Xiong was dumbfounded.
“It goes against the rule for us Gods to directly intervene in mortal life,” said the bulky man. “But after death, there is no problem. He is a good brother, because he even struggled to bid a farewell to you even though his soul would collapse. He deserves the bloody battle that you did for him!”
At the moment, Sui Xiong was too impatient to listen to his nonsense. He rushed to the man and shouted, “Return him to me!”
“Don’t be so worried! He should rest for a while!” The big guy smiled. Even though he was doing nothing, Sui couldn’t get close to him. “You. I want to talk to you.”
“Give him back to me, and we can talk!”
“How can you be so anxious!” the man said, feeling frustrated. “His soul would collapse if you took him away now. Can you heal him?”
Sui Xiong shook his head hard.
“Then please wait obediently!”
Sui Xiong sat down to show that he would wait.
The man smiled and came to him, placing the Ray’s light-wrapped soul on top of the body, and letting it float quietly. Then he joined him on the floor.
“Ha; let me introduce myself first. My name is Joel Cartman, God of Justice and Courage. In this world, I am also considered to be one of the strongest Gods.”
Sui Xiong was stunned and looked at him carefully, but he couldn’t see the slightest sense of a God in him. He seemed to be just a mortal person. But he still remembered his manners, and introduced himself.
“Oscar… your name seems to be decieving to others…” The God of Justice complained a bit and smiled. “Oscar, I think although you’re not powerful enough, you are decent, honest, visionary, talented, and righteous. It is worthwhile to make friends with you.
“So, like they do in diplomacy, would you be willing to form an alliance with me?” he said. “But I should warn you; actually, I have no talent other than chopping people…”
As he was speaking, Ray’s soul had been repaired, and slowly sank into his body. The body that had been fully restored to health was nourished by the soul, and it immediately regained its vitality. Ray moaned and slowly opened his eyes.
With great joy, Sui Xiong hugged Joel Cartman and laughed. “Talk is cheap. Let’s do it!”
“About allying with you; I completely agree!” Sui Xiong laughed and hugged the God of Justice with a dozen of tentacles that could suffocate. “Brother! You’re really like my big brother!”
