God and Devil World - Chapter 921-930
Chapter 921: Bermuda Triangle!
Floxenia saw that Yue Zhong was not too worried, and she became flustered, “Brother Yue Zhong, you cannot be careless. In their hands, there’s a treasure that Revy had obtained, it’s called the Yang-Desiring Stone. It might not have killing potential, but it has aphrodisiac properties. When activated, it is truly potent. Even Leo, with his God-Devil Body, had been affected by it before. They’re intending to utilize it when it comes to obtaining the treasure, sacrificing Elisa and Eliza to seduce you, while Agardi will get the treasure. He is also someone who has the God-Devil Imprint. His ability is Camouflage, and he’s not American, but from the Netherlands.”
When Yue Zhong heard this, his face revealed a thoughtful expression, “So this is the case. No wonder Taff agreed so readily, to think he had such a trump card!”
On Earth, it was not just Edward, Yue Zhong and Leo who had the Imprints. It was just that among those who had them, they were the top 3 famous experts, and were part of, if not the leader of, the greatest factions in the world.
During the course of the Earth’s mutation, many forces had been annihilated. Even so, the strongest experts of those factions would not die, instead, they wandered and evolved constantly by fighting wild Mutant Beasts.
Agardi was one of the early experts of Netherlands, having led the elites of the country to attack the main city. He had gained the God-Devil Imprint and had entered the 2nd World.
However, he was not able to prevent the overrun of the Netherlands from the zombies, and thus, he had wandered about, before finally ending up in America.
Yue Zhong would not underestimate anyone who had the God-Devil Imprint. With Agardi’s camouflage ability, Yue Zhong had no way of discerning his true strength. If there was any miscalculation in assuming his strength, then at the critical moment, he might be bested by Agardi.
Yue Zhong asked, “As for the clues to the world and God, is it true?”
Floxenia replied, “From what I read of their minds, it seems true. At the same time, there’s a possibility of a huge secret that might change the fate of a faction. However, they don’t seem to know much about it.”
Yue Zhong ruffled her head affectionately, “Thank you, Nia. Having you around is a really great help.”
Floxenia could sense the sincerity and affection from him, and she revealed a bright smile, curling up like a little kitten in his embrace, celebrating silently in her heart.
With her ability, Yue Zhong had assigned her to the intelligence department, handling the different traitors and spies. She could sense the fear from her subordinates and the unbound hatred from those who were sentenced to death by her. Few would like such a superior who could read their minds, thus, she could only obtain warmth and trust from Yue Zhong, that was why she was even more reliant on him.
Yue Zhong continued to stroke her head, while he thought on how to handle the Americans and a cold glint flashed past his eyes.
After flying at full speed for an hour, the Protector Battleship quickly arrived over the Bermuda Triangle.
When they were in the airspace above the sea, the ship began to rock, and Yue Zhong felt a heat on his right wrist, as Bai Yi’s voice sounded, “Warning! Warning! There’s some unknown interference in this area, and in another 10 seconds, the Battleship would lose balance. Please switch to manual or prepare to leave the region immediately!”
The Protector Battleship was being controlled by Bai Yi. If she received any interference or disturbance, it would cause the Battleship to lose control. Hence, there would be the ability to toggle between autopilot and manual.
Yue Zhong ordered, “Open the doors and let us out, you control the ship back to the country!”
Her words had just landed when bright lights enveloped Yue Zhong’s team as well as Revy’s team.
Under the lights, they were beamed down and sent out of the Battleship.
The Protector Battleship then turned around and shot off into the distance.
“No!! Save us!!!”
Being suddenly ejected from the ship, Revy’s team found themselves free falling in mid-air. Elisa and Eliza both screamed out, their faces pale.
The Battleship had been flying at an altitude of 6,000m, falling from such a height, even if they were to land in the sea, the intense impact could kill them.
Other than the 2 of them, the other 3 did not panic at such an abrupt situation. Instead, their faces just fell, and they did not utilize any abilities.
“Hiding themselves deeply.” Yue Zhong muttered while stepping on thin air. He used the atmospheric energy to support Floxenia and the other 2, while he observed the reactions of Revy’s team. However, they did not do anything, as though having given up.
Other than a Type 7 powerhouse’s ability to manipulate atmospheric energy, only those with flight related abilities or treasures would be able to keep afloat before the Type 7 realm. Yue Zhong had even assumed that Agardi was at the Type 7 realm. However, they did not do anything, looking as ordinary as a Type 4 powerhouse. Even Yue Zhong could not help but praise his level of camouflage.
When they were about a hundred meters away from the surface of the sea, Yue Zhong waved his hand and caused a bout of atmospheric energy to wrap all 5 of them.
With that, the speed of their descent fell drastically, and they landed peacefully on top of the water.
Revy and the rest felt a chill in their hearts, as they thought of Yue Zhong’s strength, “Powerful…”
There was even a slight hint of envy in the eyes of Agardi.
Yue Zhong then brought the 3 women of his team with him, as he spoke, “Revy, the previous arrangement with Taff was that I would bring the 5 of you here. Everything else is on your own from here on out.”
After that, he directly left them as he shot into the sea. At that moment, it felt like the sea was cleaved apart as he summoned the atmospheric energy around him to wrap around his team while traveling through the waters at high speeds.
Lehman frowned, and asked, “What do we do?”
“Follow the plan! Tail them!” Revy pulled out a blue box covered with engravings, which radiated in a blinding light. It enveloped them and transformed into a number of strange armors that covered all 5 of them.
When they were encased in those suits, their team then dove into the water, swimming swiftly towards the seabed.
“Aquatic combat suits? Seems like they’re well prepared!”
Yue Zhong saw the group and their armor, and his heart raced slightly. He then pointed to Floxenia and Gao He, as 2 black beams shot out and landed on them, forming into 2 sets of black aquatic armor.
He had obtained numerous items from the Mech Empire City, and the water nano armors were just part of them.
Currently, the seas had already transformed into heaven for Mutant Beasts. There were ferocious beings everywhere, especially the Bermuda Triangle.
The moment Yue Zhong’s team had just entered the water, over 10,000 Mutant Piranhas swam over, their teeth sharp and capable of tearing through Type 3 Mutant Beasts.
These Mutant Piranhas were incredibly vicious, if they even came across a land-based Type 5 Mutant Beast that dropped into the water by accident, they would devour it completely, leaving only bones.
Even a few Type 5 and Type 6 powerhouses had landed in the sea and met these Mutant Piranhas, and were consumed. The seas were different from land. Many land-based life forms could not exhibit even 10% of their strength, they were naturally not able to withstand such hits.
Yue Zhong looked at the fishes pouncing towards them, and frowned, before pointing out and summoned energy that turned into sharp blades slicing towards them. In that instant, there was a mass of blood and scattered parts of the Mutant Piranhas.
Had he still been at the Type 6 realm, it would have been troublesome dealing with these fishes. However, since he was at the Type 8 realm, it was as simple as flipping his hands to deal with them.
All of a sudden, a mass of different Mutant Beasts shot out from the depths of the sea. There was a 10m-long Mutant Swordfish, an entire school of Mutant Piranhas, countless Mutant Sea Snakes that were over dozens of meters, and looked like wyrms, as well as a few huge, towering Mutant Beasts the size of houses.
Within this Bermuda Triangle area, there were numerous bloodthirsty Sea Mutant Beasts, the moment they caught the scent of blood, they would rush over.
Chapter 922: Deep Sea Mutant Beasts!
Yue Zhong looked at the pouring numbers of Mutant Beasts and felt his scalp go numb. He could deal with one easily, and he did not fear hundreds or thousands of them. However, such a size, where there seemed to be hundreds of thousands, it was not something he could handle without breaking a sweat.
The Mutant Beasts in the sea were numbering in the tens of millions, even if Yue Zhong was in the Type 8 realm, it was still a far-off thing to kill every single Mutant Beast in the sea. If he continued to take the never-ending swarm on, there was a possibility that he might fall.
Seeing them pour out as though they were bees that were agitated, even Revy and her people felt their scalp numb and felt a sense of terror.
Right at this time, Hai Mei spoke to Yue Zhong, “Master, don’t worry, I can command the Beasts to not attack us!”
Yue Zhong ordered, “Good! Do it!”
With his order, she did not hesitate further, and quickly opened her lips, to sing a beautiful song.
As her song sounded, a strange energy reverberation traveled through the region. The originally bloodthirsty beasts felt their frenzy dissipate. They twisted their bodies in confusion, before finally stopping and swimming towards the side.
All royalty of the Mermaid Clan had the ability to use their songs to control Mutant Beasts. Hai Mei was a mature Mermaid Queen, her strength formidable, and her position royal. When she burst forth with all her ability, she was able to get the Type 6 Mutant Beasts to befriend her, and become her subordinate, fighting for her.
Of course, in order to use the Mermaid Song to subjugate a huge number of Mutant Beasts, it was incredibly difficult, but to rid them of their animosity, it was simpler.
Seeing how Yue Zhong was able to absolve the situation, Revy and her team quickly arrived behind him.
The seas were different from prior to the apocalypse. The danger was rife, and the party was all land-based experts. Even on land, they could only flee when they came across Type 5 or Type 6 Mutant Beasts, not to mention in the sea. Death was the only outcome.
The entire group proceeded towards the sea bed silently.
Along the way, Yue Zhong noticed a terrifying scene. At the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle, there were even Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beasts that were more than just a few hundred meters long.
Many of these Mutant Beasts were just organisms that had barely existed prior to the apocalypse. As for those Mutant Sea Snakes, that were hundreds of meters long, as they gathered in groups, they moved around, with nothing capable of stopping them.
On land, a single Type 4 Mutant Beast of over a hundred meters in length would be enough to storm a few places. Yet, in the seas, they were everywhere, as though they were just rank-and-file soldiers of a huge army. Their numbers were in the hundreds of thousands, and common.
Even someone as strong as Yue Zhong could die if he was not careful and surrounded by an endless number of Mutant Beasts.
At such depths, his abilities were reduced by about 70%, only by activating the God-Devil Domain would he be at his peak. However, the domain consumed much of his strength, and he would have to end the battle quickly if he did use it, otherwise, he would fall when he was weakened.
They proceeded through the horde of beasts carefully, continuing down.
After some unknown length of time, they finally reached the seabed.
At the bottom of the sea, there was not a single ray of light, it was like darkness had shrouded the entire area. However, with Yue Zhong’s God-Devil Body, his eyes were able to peer through regardless if there was light or darkness. He could see the area clearly.
After glancing around, he felt a chill.
Beneath the Bermuda Triangle, there were numerous huge mountains of over a kilometer in length. When he took a careful look, he realized these were all Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts with unimaginable strength.
There were easily over dozens of thousands of them That was to say, there was over a dozen thousand Type 5 Mutant Beasts at the bottom of the sea. Such a force was invincible within the seas.
If they were to come on land, they would be able to crush anything in their way. Furthermore, in the sea, nothing could possibly annihilate them. Even Yue Zhong had to maintain his guard
Revy and the rest caught sight of the slumbering beasts and sucked in cold breaths, their countenances turning even uglier.
Although they did not possess eyes like Yue Zhong’s, their aqua armor had the infrared sensors. They could see for themselves the terrifying mountains. Just a single one of those beasts could wipe them out, not to mention tens of thousands.
Yue Zhong swept a glance, before speaking to Revy, “Miss Revy, you should be able to tell us the position now?”
Although he had Hai Mei, if they were able to ascertain the location, it would be even better.
Revy nodded slightly, and pulled out a jade box from her grasp, retrieving an ancient, black map.
The moment the map appeared, it struggled out of her hands, before flitting towards a direction with a speed that was neither fast nor slow.
Seeing its strange movement, everyone exchanged looks and followed behind quietly.
Their bodies were small, and to those Type 5 Mutant Beasts, they were just ant-like existences. They did not move, as though they were dead.
However, everyone present knew that it was just that they were immobile for now. If they were to act suddenly, no one could withstand.
They followed the map for a short distance before it led them to a bright patch of light within the dark waters. Inside the light, there was a shield, and in it, an altar laid with numerous mystical items. There were chests and weapons, and opened boxes, revealing countless Mutant Beasts nuclei, and it looked like a huge storage.
Seeing the shield, Lehman and the rest felt their gazes brightened. Their suits then fired out jets, propelling them towards the direction of the shield.
Yue Zhong was immediately suspicious of this sudden windfall, but the number of treasures no doubt attracted him. He even saw a few Type 9 Mutant Beast nuclei. He could not let up on such precious resources.
At this time, Floxenia suddenly urged out, “Brother Yue Zhong, don’t go! It’s a trap!! It’s dangerous there, I can sense an incredible killing intent with evil designs on us!”
Yue Zhong immediately stopped as his gaze narrowed. He asked Gao He, “Gao He, try using your power to sense if there are treasures there?”
In response, Gao He closed her eyes and frowned slightly, before replying with uncertainty, “There’s definitely a treasure there! But it’s only one! And it’s not in the light, but rather, behind!”
Yue Zhong immediately channeled his voice in a line towards the ears of the 5 Americans, “Come back!! It’s a trap!”
Hearing that, there were different reactions.
Revy, Elisa, and Agardi stopped immediately, while Eliza just slowed down, hesitating slightly, Lehman, on the other hand, increased his speed.
Lehman’s eyes shone with greed as he thought, “Hmph, I’ve used such tricks so many times myself. This treasury is mine! Once I gain control of it, I can go through a change and become a powerhouse surpassing even Leo and Yue Zhong!! I’ll become Earth’s true number one expert!”
Greed could blind. Many intelligent people had fallen prey to their own greed before.
Lehman was a gifted expert, and he hoped to surpass Leo and Yue Zhong. It was all he thought about every day. With such a treasury in front of him, to him, it was the only opportunity that he had to grab.
Just as he got close to the light, suddenly, from within the shield, a huge tongue unfolded and shot out, wrapping around Lehman and pierced his body. Before Lehman could even scream, the tongue retracted back into the radiant light and disappeared.
Seeing that, Eliza, who was next in front, let out a blood-curdling scream, and tried to retreat backward, “Save me!! Save me!!! Save me!!”
At that time, the light world retracted, revealing a huge mouth of over 1km, filled with countless sharp teeth, exerting a powerful suction force on Eliza as well as the rest.
Chapter 923: Killing the Mutant Beast!
Yue Zhong’s face turned, as he grabbed out at thin air, and a powerful atmospheric energy gathered, transforming into a huge hand that grabbed onto Eliza and pulled her towards him.
The jaws of the huge beast snapped shut at that moment, closing in on the entire area where Eliza was escaping from and managed to bite through her legs, as fresh blood flowed.
“Ah!!! Help!! It hurts!! Save me!!!”
Eliza screamed out in pain.
Elisa saw that and could not help but scream out as well, “Sister!!”
Yue Zhong’s gaze narrowed, and his God-Devil strength gathered in his eyes, and he activated his Eyes of Perception, taking a good look at the beast with gold light shimmering from his eyes.
It was a huge beast of about 3km long, its body covered in thick scales, and there was a strange meat ball that emitted light like a lantern which formed on its forehead, about 500m-wide. It turned out to be a Type 7 Mutant Black Seadevil Fish, and it was incredibly ugly.
After it was discovered, the eyes of the fish glinted dangerously, and the lantern on its head radiated brightly, sending a bright light shooting outwards.
Yue Zhong was shocked, and he quickly summoned an energy shield to cover him and his 3 girls, while he could not afford to bother with the elites from America.
At that critical moment, Revy and Agardi could no longer bother about hiding their strength and quickly pulled out their strongest defensive cards.
Revy revealed a blue box that quickly transformed into a mechanical ball that wrapped around her.
Agardi had a glint in his eyes, as a number of strange tattoos radiated on his body. A powerful psychic barrier emerged and formed around him.
Elisa and Eliza were both without any defensive treasures, and could only swim towards Yue Zhong with all their might.
Among these people, Yue Zhong was the strongest, and only he was able to protect them from the enormous Mutant Beast.
The bright light shone brightly, bypassing Yue Zhong’s energy shield, and pierced his body.
At that moment, Yue Zhong felt his consciousness shrouded in pain, as the scenery around him changed.
“Master, you’re awake!”
“Master, come and catch me!”
Currently, he was surrounded by many beautiful women of different ages, style, and charms, and he seemed to be in some paradise on Earth.
The countless women were either playing heavenly music, or singing in their melodious voices, or dancing in absolutely stunning dances.
As these amazing beauties surrounded him, they were dressed in light silk, their expressions coy, as they competed to get his attention.
They had exceptional skin and were all elegant even in their merry-making.
In such a heavenly setting, even Buddha might sink in forever.
“What a powerful illusion, if I had not undergone the baptism of the Type 9 powerhouse will, I might have truly been swept up in this forever.” Yue Zhong took in the mesmerizing scent of the ladies beside him, and his eyes flashed coldly. He then barked out violently, “Get lost!”
At that moment, it seemed as though a powerful ax capable of splitting the heavens and earth appeared and cleaved through the scene.
As it sliced through, the world was destroyed, and the women, fruits, and paradise shattered like glass.
At that moment, Yue Zhong stirred from the illusion, and his perception swept outwards, noticing that other than him, everyone had their eyes shut, their expressions of bliss.
Even Floxenia, who was on his back, had a scarlet flush, her breathing rushed, “Brother Yue Zhong, no! Nia is still not yet of age! However, if Brother Yue Zhong really wants it… then… Nia, Nia will not resist.”
As everyone was engrossed in their dreams, without any means to retaliate, the Type 7 Black Seadevil Fish opened its jaws once more and began to suck in deep, trying to suck everybody into its mouth.
Yue Zhong frowned, and with a thought, he cast his Summon Tamed Beast technique, as a void appeared in the sea, and the type 8 Wyrm-Crocodile King flew out, immediately pouncing towards the Type 7 Black Seadevil. It opened its own jaws and bit down viciously on the body of the Type 7 Mutant Black Seadevil Fish.
The Type 8 Wyrm-Crocodile King was a beast of sea, land, and air, and it could adept at fighting in all 3 terrains. However, its innate ability was wind, thus, in the waters, it was not particularly effective. That was why it spent most of its time outside of the water.
Even so, it continued to urge its innate ability, while its physique was at the Type 8 realm, posing a formidable challenge to the Type 7 Mutant Black Seadevil Fish.
When the Type 7 Mutant Black Seadevil Fish was bitten by the Type 8 Wyrm-Crocodile King, a huge chunk of flesh was torn off its body. It trembled in agony and opened its huge jaws, firing its powerful tongue at the Type 8 Mutant Beast.
As the tongue slammed into the body of the Type 8 Wyrm-Crocodile King, it trembled but was not able to penetrate the hide. Instead, it only served to infuriate the Type 8 beast more.
The Type 8 Wyrm-Crocodile was incredibly vicious, as it bit off the flesh harshly and burrowed towards the flesh.
After that, with a blast of powerful wind blades, it forcefully sliced the Black Seadevil Fish into two, as fresh blood dyed the water.
In the seas, while the might of the wind blades was not comparable to on land, however, in close vicinity, it was able to exert considerable destruction.
With the death of the Type 7 Black Seadevil, a huge pool of blood dissipated outwards, and at that moment, the numerous Mutant Beasts of the waters swarmed over.
A few of the mountain-like Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts that had been slumbering also lifted their heads, swimming over.
The blood and flesh of a Type 7 beast were extremely enticing to these Type 5 and Type 6 Mutant Beasts, as it could allow them to evolve further.
Yue Zhong asked Gao He who had just stirred awake, “Where’s the treasure, Gao He?”
She pointed towards the tail of the corpse of the Type 7 Black Seadevil, “Over there!”
With a thought, he charged forward like a knife slicing through the water with the atmospheric energy surrounding as he arrived at the tail.
Gao He pointed at one particular lump, and spoke resolutely, “It’s right there!”
With a point, a blade of atmospheric energy sliced through the area, tearing it apart, as a golden God-Devil Imprint covered with blood soared towards him.
Yue Zhong stared at it with excitement, and he grabbed it, “It’s a God-Devil Imprint, no wonder this damned beast could reach the Type 7 realm, so it had gotten an Imprint. I wonder which unfortunate bastard had been eaten by it.”
After he obtained it, he placed it within his Universe Storage Ring and continued further into the ocean.
The black ancient map had not left, instead, it waited for Revy and the rest to arrive before continued forward.
Revy carried Eliza, whose legs had been bitten off, and had been knocked unconscious by injecting anesthesia, and came to Yue Zhong, “Mr. Yue Zhong, Eliza’s legs had been bitten off. This time, it had truly been dangerous, please show grace and take good care of her.”
Yue Zhong swept her a look, as well as Elisa who was standing beside and laughed coldly, “Revy, they’re your people. You want me to take care of them? Since they’re no longer capable of protecting themselves, get Elisa to escort her out. If she cannot, then Agardi can fill that role.”
Revy frowned. Of the 5-man team that came, Lehman had been eaten alive, while Eliza had lost her legs. They only had 3 able-bodied staff left. If anyone else left, their plan would go up in smokes.
Her gaze flickered as she spoke coldly, “Yue Zhong, I know you have the ability to help her regain her legs. If you can take care of her now, when her legs are healed, she’s yours. If you’re not willing to accept her, then leave her here to die.”
When Elisa heard those cruel words, her expression turned ugly, as she grabbed her half-dead sister, and cursed out, “Revy! What the hell are you saying?! She’s my sister! A hero of the Superhuman Alliance! You actually treat her as a commodity to be given out? What kind of a joke is this? I’m not interested in this mission any longer. I will bring my sister back now, and leave you bunch of crazy, inhumane bastards.”
Chapter 924: Sea God City!
Revy took a cold look at the agitated and infuriated Elisa, and just replied coldly, “This time, you have to complete your mission. The aqua armor on you is equipped with an explosive. If you insist on abandoning on your mission, I will detonate it, and you can go to hell with your sister.”
When Elisa heard those cruel words, she felt like her entire body was plunged in ice, as her visage turned pale, while she starred at Revy venomously. Initially, when both she and her sister were selected for the mission, they had been excited and filled with hope for it. However, she was filled with hatred and fear towards it now.
Revy swept her a look, before offering a ‘carrot’, “Elisa, when you complete the mission, you will be recognized as a hero of America. You can regain your freedom and reside wherever you wish to. The American government will compensate you with 1 billion New US Dollars.”
America also had regained some form of society and rebuilt their structures. There was a new currency, the new US Dollar. The old US Dollar was useless, and only the new currency could purchase items.
A billion US Dollar was not a small amount, enough to purchase over 50 luxurious villas in the city, and one could live comfortably for the rest of his or her life. Of course, that was dependent on the stability of the American government and that inflation would not be too insane.
Elisa gritted her teeth and spoke, “Fine! I will do it.”
Under pressure, sometimes, one had to bend. Elisa was an intelligent girl. She knew that if she fought on, Revy would just kill them on the spot.
After being inducted into the Superhuman Alliance, Elisa and Eliza were no longer innocent girls. They had been through a lot and had seen the darkness beneath the facade of the government.
Elisa turned to Yue Zhong and sobbed while she pleaded, “Yue Zhong, please, save my sister. If you do it, I can go to bed with you.”
Revy had already set her mind, if Yue Zhong was still adamant about not helping, Eliza would die. Elisa only had this sister, and they had supported each other until today through the cruel apocalypse. For her sister, she was willing to do anything.
“Fine! I will save her!”
Yue Zhong saw how Elisa was crying and was touched by their strong relationship. He pointed and a black light enveloped Eliza’s body, turning into a rocket-like mechanism, that shot for the surface of the sea.
Yue Zhong then spoke indifferently, “Relax, your sister won’t die.”
The rocket was formed from a Type 6 Mech Beast, as long as it did not come across the assault of a Type 7 Mutant Beast, if it wanted to leave the sea wholeheartedly, nothing could stop it.
The black map continued to float through the sea, passing numerous mountains beneath the sea, nests of all kinds of Mutant Beasts, as it proceeded towards a seemingly endless dark tear.
Yue Zhong and the rest followed tightly.
After entering that tear, they descended another thousand of meters, before they were wrapped in a bright blue light. Suddenly, a city with numerous large statues emitting powerful auras appeared in front of them.
Within the huge city, there were countless Sea Clan members walking around on the streets. It was a bustle of activity.
At the same time, inside the city, the defense was tight, with a guard every few meters. The inner city was truly well-defended.
Hai Mei swept the Sea God City a look and introduced to Yue Zhong, “Master, this is the Holy Land of our Sea Clan, the Sea God City. The great Sea God Empress is beneath this city, comprehending the mysteries of the universe. This city was actually something left behind by an ancient civilization, with only 4 entrances. The rest of the area had been covered, and unless attacked by a Type 9 powerhouse, it is impossible to breach.”
Yue Zhong swept the city a look, his mouth twitching slightly. However, he did not say much. While this city might be impossible for others to breach, to him, who had the Radiant Battleship, it was not considered much.
Hai Mei had an apologetic look as she continued, “The 4 entrances are the East, West, South, North Gates of the cities. That gate nearest to us is the North Gate. I’ve some dealings with the protector of the North Gate before. As long as I appear, they will let me through. However, I have to trouble Master and the rest of you to pretend to be my servants.”
Yue Zhong suddenly asked, “You being my subordinate has not been revealed, right?”
She swiftly replied, “It should not be. It had happened secretively, and for the news to reach the great Seas, it would take at least 10 days, and to reach the Sea God City, it would take half a month. The great Sea God does not usually concern herself with this. Latest news would go to the palace first, before reaching the Sea God City.”
Yue Zhong heard this and was slightly clearer about the mystical entity, Sea God. She should be a powerful, cultivating freak, with her whole mind focused on training. She did not care about other matters and was more of a source of hope and faith for the masses.
Such a character was terrifying. Yue Zhong guessed that she was either a peak Type 7 or Type 8 existence, and in this sea, which was her domain, Yue Zhong might not be able to best her.
“Go! To the North Gate!”
Under his orders, they quickly masqueraded as Hai Mei’s servants and the group proceeded towards the gate.
The citizens of the Sea God City required food as well, and every day, a large number of Sea Clan members would exit and enter the city. It was rife with activity.
Exiting was easy, as many Sea Clan members would leave the moment they got out. However, there was a long line queuing to enter.
Yue Zhong did not want to queue up obediently. He looked at the long line, and grabbed out, pushing a particular Prawn-man in front of him to one side in an overbearing manner.
The Prawn-man swiveled around with a vicious expression and was about to lash out in fury when he suddenly saw the Mermaid Queen Hai Mei behind Yue Zhong. His eyes dimmed, and he stood one side obediently.
Chapter 925: Possia!
The Mermaids were the royalty among all of the Sea Clan, and the rest of the species had no way of standing up against them. Most of those in line were directly thrown aside by Yue Zhong and did not dare to say anything.
Just as they reached the North Gate, there were 4 Sea Warriors, with octopus heads, their hands like hooks, stopping Yue Zhong as they barked, “Halt, who are you guys?”
Yue Zhong eyed those 4 Octopus-warriors, his face turning cold as he barked, “Scram! Behind me stands the great Mermaid Queen Silemoya, you dare to obstruct her way?”
Hearing that furious shout, the 4 Sea Warriors turned to gaze behind, and their faces froze in shock, as they kneeled and spoke respectfully, “Greetings, Your Highness Silemoya! We had offended you without knowing better, please pardon our ignorance!”
Hai Mei glanced at them with disinterest as she ordered, “Enter!”
At that moment, they were about to relax and enter the city, there was a coquettish voice that sounded, “Sister Silemoya, didn’t you bring some forces to invade Shanghai of China? Why are you here? Did you abandon your troops and come back alone?”
The entire group turned behind and caught sight of a lavish sedan chair being hoisted by 4 burly Sea Warriors. It was constructed out of red crystals, and ladened with pearls. Following behind were 300 powerful Sea Warriors.
On top of that sedan, there was a young Mermaid who sat on it, her body also covered with precious pearls, smiling as she looked over.
This young Mermaid was obviously of high status, and Yue Zhong could sense that there were in fact 2 Type 6 Sea Clan warriors acting as her bodyguard.
The Sea Clan also valued the strong, to think an ordinary Mermaid could be protected by Type 6 Sea Clan warriors, her identity was definitely not simple.
Hai Mei swept a look at that Mermaid and spoke icily, “Possia, I have my reasons naturally, why should I tell you? Let’s go!”
Possia laughed, pointing at Yue Zhong, “Wait. Sister Silemoya, I’m very interested in that human slave beside you. Can you give him to me? I can gift you with a 100 Tiger-Shark guards.”
The Tiger-Shark Guards was one of the most elite of troops in the Sea Clan. Each of them was at least at the Type 4 realm, and a hundred of them was a sizeable force even for these Mermaid Queens.
Most trades were of such powerful guards. They were like currency and commodities.
There was a cold look in Hai Mei’s eyes, as she rejected it icily, “Not interested. Let’s move!”
Possia’s eyes flashed, as she laughed out cruelly, and gave a vicious order, “Hu Sen, go tear that human apart!”
There was a cruel light in the eyes of the Type 5 Tiger-Shark guard beside her. His entire being burst forth with a powerful aura, as he shot towards Yue Zhong, sending a claw over.
Yue Zhong looked at the incoming Tiger-Shark warrior, his eyes flashing coldly. He sent his right fist exploding out at the head of the Sea Warrior. With a loud smack, the Sea Warrior’s head was separated from his body, and a fresh cloud of blood dyed the area of water red.
“The Tiger-SharK General was killed just like that?!”
“That was too scary!! Who the hell is this slave?!”
Seeing Yue Zhong take out the Tiger-Shark warrior in a single hit, the rest of the Sea Warriors were filled with shock and respect. The Tiger-Shark General was at the Type 5 realm, with a powerful combat might. Yet, he had been slapped to death by Yue Zhong in a single hit. Since their race also valued the strong, such an expert was worthy of their respect.
Seeing her own subordinate killed in a hit, Possia’s brows furrowed, as she assessed Yue Zhong carefully.
Hai Mei did not bother about Possia as she ordered, “Move!”
As they entered the Sea God City, Hai Mei spoke to Yue Zhong through a transmitter, “Master, Possia is the 107th Princess of the Sea Clan. She might not be strong, but her intelligence is publicly acknowledged to be among the top 10. We had left such a huge mark, we might not be able to hoodwink her for long.
Although they had entered the city easily with Hai Mei’s status, with things and their development, as long as Possia searched a little more carefully, they would be exposed.
Yue Zhong eyed the black map in the skies, muttering indifferently, “No worries, we just have to act faster.”
After that, the entire group followed after the black map.
At the entrance of the city gate, Hai Mei’ frowned, as she ordered a swordfish mullet to her side, “Wei Sheng, go to the Imperial City and search on Silemoya’s tracks and battle record. If there are any strange points, immediately flag it out for Her Majesty the Sea Empress to send experts here.”
One swordfish guard beside her responded and quickly tore through the water and disappeared in a flash.
Possia continued, “Jing Kui, go to the Sea God Temple and report, say that Silemoya has already defected, and had brought human spies into the Sea God City, Request for aid in suppressing her.”
The whale-head expert beside her, who was 8m-tall, and exuded a might of a Type 6 expert, frowned, “Your Highness, has Silemoya really defected?”
She nodded, without a hint of anger, “I’m 80 – 90% certain.”
Jing Kui hesitated before asking, “Your Highness, without any evidence, if she turns out to be innocent, we would be captured by the Sea God Temple and branded as slaved. Furthermore, without any evidence, they would not act.”
Possia laughed lightly, her voice turning incomparably cold, “There will be evidence. Just report it as Silemoya had brought humans in order to deal with the Temple, and those old-fashioned farts would definitely send the most powerful elites out. This is an order. Are you trying to disobey?”
Jing Kui immediately got down in fright, “Your subordinate does not dare, I will go immediately.” before swiftly heading towards the North Gate.
As time passed, there were more experts produced in the Sea Clan. While the Type 6 powerhouses were not many, it was considerable. If a Type 6 expert like Jing Kui were to be executed for disobeying orders, there would be no tears for him.
To the Mermaid Clan who could control Mutant Beasts, a Type 5 Mutant Beast was much more powerful and useful than a Type 6 Sea Clan expert.
There was a strange power to the black map, and ordinary people could not see it. Only Yue Zhong, Revy and those which had seen it initially could see it float through the city.
As it continued to float, they saw the direction that it was traveling towards. There was a huge golden pyramid that seemed to be constructed out of the purest gold, exuding a powerful and mysterious aura in the distance.
There were sentries and guards everywhere, as powerful soldiers patrolled around the pyramid.
The elites patrolling the pyramid were at the very least a Type 4 powerhouse. There were many Type 5 and Type 6 powerhouses, and the experts were truly plenty.
This was just the force on the surface. Yue Zhong could clearly sense with his perception that the most terrifying factor was that below the pyramid, about a few dozen kilometers below, there was a terrifying Mutant Beast exuding a peak-Type 8 aura.
An ordinary person could not sense the terror of that Type 8 Mutant Beast, but Yue Zhong was sensitive to it.
It was already at the peak of the Type 8 realm, half a step into the Type 9 realm. If the Wyrm-Crocodile King were to challenge it alone, it would definitely be torn apart in a few rounds.
Even among Type 8 experts, they were split into different tiers. To the beast below the pyramid, it was just lacking that little spatial waves. Once it comprehended spatial laws, it would be able to step into the realm and break through, turning into a terrifying existence that could transcend space.
The black map shot out, entering the pyramid and disappeared.
Hai Mei quickly exclaimed to Yue Zhong, “Master, this is the Sea God Temple that the mighty Sea God is cultivating beneath!”
Chapter 926: Heroism!
Yue Zhong looked at the golden pyramid, his eyes flashing with a glint, “This is the Sea God Temple?”
The Temple was constructed beautifully, with a mysterious and holy feel. He just had to look at it and could sense the might and terror hidden within.
With his intuition, he could sense that if he were to barge in, it was likely that he would be suppressed within.
The Sea God Temple was not like the Mech Kingdom’s Empire City. Although danger was rife at that time, with countless experts at well, Yue Zhong had Bai Yi as a trump card, and there was also a Type 9 expert distracting the bulk of the defenses, that was how he had made off with the treasures.
As for this Sea God Temple, Yue Zhong could only rely on himself, as well as the Wyrm-Crocodile King that he tamed.
Yue Zhong eyed the huge pyramid, his face changing multiple times before he took a deep breath, and his powerful blasted outwards, “China’s Yue Zhong is here to challenge the Sea God!!”
“China’s Yue Zhong is here to challenge the Sea God!!”
His voice reverberated throughout the entire Sea God City.
Hearing his voice, many of the residents within the city were shocked, and immediately, all the Sea Warriors poured towards the location.
“That’s the top human expert on land!! Yue Zhong!! He actually came to our Sea God Temple to challenge our mighty Sea God!! Seeking death!!”
“Yue Zhong!! It’s China’s Yue Zhong!!”
“To think the top human expert came to challenge the Sea God!! I must go and kill that human!!”
Hearing his voice, many battle-crazed Sea Warriors were excited and incensed, charging towards their location in a frenzy.
Since the Sea Clan had begun evolving and developing intelligence, they had captured a few human slaves over the course of their short years of development and absorbed whatever knowledge they could. Thus, they were aware of the top expert Yue Zhong from China.
In the past, they had clashed with him once in Japan. However, at that time, he had not been able to fend them off, and could only board a helicarrier to flee the assault of the Sea Clan. Thus, many Sea Warriors despised him and thought that the human race was just merely so-so.
Hearing Yue Zhong challenging their revered Sea God, many of them were provoked and wanted to hunt him down.
Agardi, who had been masking his identity and kept silent throughout, rushed towards Yue Zhong in a somewhat stricken manner, “Are you crazy?! Damn it, aren’t we exposed like this?!”
Revy was also in disbelief as she stared at Yue Zhong, She had not expected for him to announce his arrival so loudly, right smack in the middle of the enemy’s territory.
With such a roar, Yue Zhong’s mind whirred, as the energy within him surged. There was not a sense of glory, instead, what replaced it was a bristling heroism, a desire to battle.
At the initial stages of the apocalypse, he had struggled constantly to evolve. Against powerful enemies, he had to hide and evade constantly, and had suffered numerous times.
At various stages, he had to plan his moves carefully and stealthily, simply because he had been too weak. Now that he was at the Type 8 stage, almost invincible, his mindset was naturally changing.
In order to become a true expert at the peak, one had to tear through the countless obstacles, and forge and baptize oneself through challenges, wiping out enemies. When Yue Zhong released that roar, he had instinctively comprehended that principle.
In this Sea God City, there were plenty of experts, as well as a formidable opponent with untold depths. If he was not careful, there was a chance that he could fall. Even so, he did not put it to heart, and just wanted to fight it out, showcasing his strongest potential.
Yue Zhong swept Agardi a look, “Agardi, I know that you’re the top expert of the Netherlands, and an owner of the God-Devil Imprint as well. If you’re fearful, you could leave here right now. With your strength, it should not be an issue”
Agardi’s face fell, as he roared at Yue Zhong, “You fucking maniac!! I shall watch how you die!” before dodging towards a small alley, disappearing into the darkness.
Anyone who had the God-Devil Imprint and returned from the 2nd World was not a simple person. Each of them would have the ability to evade their captors. Otherwise, they would have already been torn apart by the Saint Clan of the 2nd World.
Revy’s gaze turned complicated as she shot Yue Zhong a look, before choosing to follow after Agardi.
In the distance, Possia saw Yue Zhong standing, floating in the water, exuding an overbearing aura, and her eyes flashed with appreciation, “This Yue Zhong person is truly brave, and could be considered a hero. Too bad, he’s about to die!”
The Sea Clan revered the strong, and they admired those who dared to flaunt their strength. Although she was an enemy, she could not help but admire Yue Zhong’s strength and guts.
“Human, the Sea God Temple is not an existence you can offend, you can die for me!”
One Type 6 swordfish-person roared, and shot towards him with a Mach-5 speed, attacking Yue Zhong viciously.
The entire frame of this Swordfish warrior transformed into a sharp blade, and it was one of his trump killing cards. Even a Type 7 powerhouse would be pierced by him.
Yue Zhong pointed at the incoming Sea Warrior, and a sharp atmospheric energy condensed into a blade, slicing through the warrior, in a shower of blood and organs.
“General Jian Ci was killed!! This human truly has some capabilities!”
Seeing the death of the Type 6 Swordfish-warrior, the eyes of the surrounding Sea Clan warriors narrowed, not daring to underestimate Yue Zhong.
The Type 6 Swordfish Warrior was considered a peak expert within the Sea God City. Such an expert was killed in an instant by Yue Zhong, proving his might.
Possia watched on in interest, as her lithe body trembled in excitement, her eyes flashing with passion and pity at the same time, “He was able to slaughter General Jian Ci in a split second! He truly is strong! What a pity, he’s a human!!”
“This human is strong! Everybody, forwards, do not let him defile and shock the great Sea God!”
One Sea Clan warrior roared out, channeling his innate talent, and fired a bolt of lightning at Yue Zhong.
The roar of the Sea Clan warrior was like the fuse to explosives, as the entire horde of Sea Clan warriors exploded in an uproar, channeling their innate abilities and launching them at Yue Zhong.
“Since you’re all seeking death, you can go to hell!!”
His eyes flashed coldly, waving his hands, as 36 beams of blood radiances shot out and swirled through the water, enveloping the entire scene below him.
Anywhere the blood radiances touched, the patches of Sea Warriors would be instantly turned to emaciated corpses, and the blood radiances themselves would expand larger.
At that instant, he had already killed over tens of thousands of Sea Clan warriors, as the stench of blood got thicker and spread further.
Among the abilities of Yue Zhong, the Blood Manipulation ability was the most insidious, and most effective against low-level biological lifeforms. It had a large area of effect and consumed little of his strength. As long as it continued to slaughter, with Yue Zhong’s present strength, it would not even wear him out to maintain it.
Compared to the more powerful God-Devil Domain, it was much more practical.
Possia saw this all-consuming blood field, and her face froze in shock as she retreated in horror, “Not good!! This human actually knows such an evil art!! Damn it!! Retreat!!”
The countless Sea Clan warriors roared out, charging at Yue Zhong, trying to reaching him, to no avail as they were all sucked dry.
In just a few breaths, there were over another dozen of thousands of Sea Warriors that had died at Yue Zhong’s hands, as he continued to absorb the life force from all over.
At that moment, there was a powerful and stern voice from the pyramid, as it released a powerful and saintly energy towards the blood radiances.
As the light shone onto the blood radiances, there were traces of smoke, and patches of the blood radiance were vaporized.
It continued to shine and expand, wiping out more of the blood radiances. The terrifying Blood Manipulation ability of Yue Zhong that no one had been able to overcome was slowly being erased by that golden light.
With a thought, Yue Zhong quickly resummoned the remaining Blood Radiances back into his arms.
Chapter 927: Defeating the Sea God!
The golden pyramid then opened up, as a beautiful mermaid rose from within, wielding a blue staff that had a gold wood essence within. She wore a golden crown, her body covered in pearls, her long hair blue in color. Her eyes were bright and clear, her figure extremely alluring, and her looks were absolutely stunning.
Yue Zhong looked at her, his gaze turning serious, “Sea God?”
She exuded a powerful aura as she emerged, apparently at the Type 8 realm.
Regardless of where they were, a Type 8 powerhouse would be considered a tyrant. Before the Earth had changed, there was not even a single Type 1 Divine Warrior. In just 3 years, there was already a Type 8 powerhouse. This was the terrifying innate talent of the Sea God. What was more, she did not possess the God-Devil Imprint like Yue Zhong, who could evolve by killing other life forms.
The Sea God stared at Yue Zhong coldly and with a hint of disdain, “You’re the strongest human powerhouse, Yue Zhong? Very good, you’re strong. However, you should not have come. Stay here and be my slave, I can let you live. Otherwise, it’ll be your death day.”
Yue Zhong laughed out loud, but there was no joy in his eyes, just an incomparable cold, “Haha! Just based on you? I’m lacking a female slave, and you seem decent enough. You can just scram over here and beg for me to take you in. That way, I can let you live, as well as spare the rest of the Sea Clan in this city.”
The humans and Sea Clan were fighting for the hegemony of Earth, and there could only be one ruling race. This fight was bound to happen in the end, that was why Yue Zhong did not bother dispensing any pleasantries.
The Sea God spat out these two words with an icy tone, and in a flash of blue light, her staff began to glow, including the golden nucleus embedded in it. A bright gold light that was able to vaporize the Blood Radiances earlier shot towards Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong activated his Shadow Steps, as he stepped through the air and shot towards the Sea God with countless shadows.
With a thought from the Sea God, the gold light split apart, turning into numerous beams that pierced throughout the skies.
The countless gold beams pierced through Yue Zhong’s shadows, and one even shot towards his actual body.
Yue Zhong willed it, and a powerful energy shield congealed in front of him.
As the gold rays fell upon the shield, they pierced through it easily, shooting for Yue Zhong.
“Oh! Decent force!”
He let out a surprised sound, as he slapped out at the gold beam, causing a huge sound as the beam was destroyed.
After causing the gold light beam to dissipate, Yue Zhong quickly fired out his Level 6 Yin-Yang Palm at the Sea God. A powerful palm imprint that was filled with both Yang and Yin aura quickly covered the sky, as it shot towards the Sea God viciously.
Yue Zhong was not in the mood to be chivalrous, if he could, he would slap her to death.
“What a powerful human, he actually knows such an incredible technique!!”
Sensing the might of the Yin-Yang Palm, the countenance of the Sea God turned ugly, as she wielded her staff and thrust it towards the pyramid below.
At that moment, an archaic and saintly aura surged forth. It did not belong to the Sea God, instead, wrapping around the staff, as a gold dragon head appeared from the crystal. It gave off a tyrannical strength as it snarled at the Yin-Yang Palm imprint.
Following a loud sound, the gold dragon was disintegrated by Yue Zhong’s Yin-Yang Palm, while the attack was also crushed by the force behind the gold dragon.
Yue Zhong could achieve the Level 6 of the Yin-Yang Palm, allowing him to exhibit a strength 64 times that of his own. With a single palm imprint, it was as though 64 Type 8 powerhouses had attacked at the same time. It was enough to crush some Type 8 powerhouses in a single strike. With such a powerful move, coupled with his Third Order God-Devil Body, under most ordinary circumstances, he could only fire off 10 times of such an attack.
Once the dust settled, and both attacks had canceled each other out, the resulting backlash caused the Sea God to be pale, as she spat out a mouthful of blood, her face full of shock, “How is this possible?! As a Type 8 powerhouse, I had even borrowed the force of the ancient pyramid to fire out, and yet, he was able to meet my attack and it doesn’t seem like he’s the least bit injured.”
When the Yin-Yang Palm was destroyed, although Yue Zhong had been at the epicenter, he was not injured at all. After reaching the Third Order God-Devil Body, his physique had reached an unbelievable level. Almost nothing could hurt him anymore.
At his current stage, even if he was at the center of an explosion, with the defensive ability of his Third Order God-Devil Body, he would not be in danger. He might feel some pain, while some of the weaker aspects of his body could be injured.
Yue Zhong did not seem to mind that the Level 6 Yin-Yang Palm was extinguished by the attack of the Sea God. He stepped forward and appeared in front of her, his right fist punching out, wrapped in countless shadows. In a single move, he threw out over a hundred fists.
The Sea God wielded her staff, her eyes flashing dangerously as a gold shield appeared in front of her.
Yue Zhong blasted out multiple times at the gold shield, his powerful strength exploding forth, smashing into it like a crazed wild beast.
In a flash, he destroyed it completely and sent a fist at the Sea God.
With his Third Order God-Devil Body, Yue Zhong’s physique was tougher than the teeth and claws of some Type 8 Mutant Beasts, and he preferred using his body to fight.
The Sea God raised her staff to defend.
As his fist struck the staff, it broke through the bright staff, causing the crystal to shatter, while his fist continued through and slammed into the abdomen of the Sea God, sending her hurtling through the waters at an incredible speed.
“How could a human be that strong?!”
“Impossible!! The great Sea God would not lose!”
In the Sea God City, many experts watched on in horror as the Sea God was sent knocked back by Yue Zhong, their eyes filled with disbelief, even despair.
Right at that moment, 2 top beauties of the Mermaid Clan, both of them Type 7 existences, came out from hidden corners of the temple and raised their staff at Yue Zhong.
2 bright beams of blue light shot forth, coiling around Yue Zhong like ropes, and began to absorb him of his strength.
The staffs in the hands of those 2 Type 7 Mermaids were old ancient weapons and were called Devil-Suppressing Chains. They were extremely hard to deal with, once caught, the strength of the captive would be sapped quickly.
The strength of this particular treasure was unrivaled, and while it might not be effective against Type 9 existences, most Type 8 powerhouses were still susceptible to the ropes. This was one of the trump cards of the Sea God City.
The Sea Clan had occupied such a treasure trove, and within the seas, they had obtained countless treasures of the past. That was how they were able to develop so fast. Otherwise, even with their innate talent and potential, it was impossible to reach the Type 8 realm in such a short time.
“Break for me!”
The moment he was caught in those ropes, he frowned, and with a furious roar, he struggled and the innate strength of his Third Order God-Devil Body burst forth. The ropes were instantly ripped apart, breaking into pieces, while he sliced out with his hands, and 2 energy blades cleaved down on both Type 7 mermaids, killing them immediately.
As he was engaged with them, the Sea God pulled out a strange stone engraved with runes with a pale expression.
“Damn you, Yue Zhong, you forced me to!! Break the seal!!” The Sea God gritted her teeth and threw the stone towards the seabed.
The moment the stone landed on the ground, it was absorbed into the soil.
The next moment, a powerful aura surge out from the temple and caused the Sea God City to shudder.
The protection of the Sea God City broke apart, and the surrounding seawater surged into the city, threatening to engulf everything.
The ground of the Sea God City began to crumble and split apart, as a huge Wyrm-Dragon’s head of about a kilometer in length started to emerge, exuding a terrifying aura.
The moment that half-step Mutant Wyrm-Dragon appeared, the entire Sea God City started to crumble, and many of the Sea Clan members started to fight to flee. They could sense the terror and might of the half-step Type 9 Mutant Beast, and as long as it meant to, it could slaughter them as easily as breathing.
The Sea God swam up to the half-step Type 9 Mutant Wyrm-Dragon, and spoke, “Glorious Sir Agnis, it is I, Allexia, that released you from your seal. Please honor your vow, and fight for me, to wipe out my enemy!”
The Wyrm-Dragon looked at the Sea God with an indifferent gaze, “So it was you, puny thing, that released me from the seal?”
Chapter 928: Agnis!
Sea God Allexia laughed lightly, “That’s right, it was I who has released you from your ten-thousand-year seal.”
Agnis closed its eyes, feeling the atmospheric energy, before opening them again. It then turned to look at Yue Zhong, “This is the human you want me to kill?”
When Yue Zhong heard those words, his body turned taut, his fists clenching, as he prepared himself for the worst.
A half-step Type 9 Mutant Beast was truly terrifying. The energy and strength emitting from Agnis were much thicker and powerful than an ordinary Type 9 powerhouse. It was only lacking the comprehension of spatial laws. Otherwise, once it did, it would immediately ascend and be able to dominate other Type 9 powerhouses.
Allexia gritted her teeth and pointed at him, “That’s right, I’m ordering you to kill him immediately!”
Agnis turned its gaze to Allexia, back to Yue Zhong, before its huge Wyrm-Dragon head suddenly opened its jaws and snapped down on Allexia without warning.
The Sea God had not expected the terrifying beast she released to suddenly attack her, and without any preparation, she was instantly swallowed by Agnis.
“Not bad, it’s been over ten thousand years, to think I can get to enjoy the taste of a Type 8 powerhouse when I’m released! Not bad at all!!” Agnis licked its lips, before laughing insidiously, “Releasing me, and you think you can order me around like a dog? Little mermaid, you lack the qualifications to want to be my master.”
“The Sea God is dead!!”
“Heavens, the mighty Sea God is dead!”
Seeing Allexia consumed by the half-step Type 9 Mutant Wyrm-Dragon, the Sea Clan members were all fearful, their morale and faith crumbling. In that instant, they all tried to flee.
Yue Zhong himself also had a cold look, as he retreated slowly and quietly.
Although Agnis had launched a sneak attack, to be able to kill the Type 8 Allexia in a split second, it proved that he was indeed strong. Even if he were to show all his trump cards, it was unlikely that he could overcome this Mutant Beast.
Agnis turned its gaze towards Yue Zhong as it drawled, “Human, what’s your name? There’s no need to retreat, I bear you no ill intentions. Unless you offend me first, I will not treat you like an enemy.”
Yue Zhong responded respectfully, “I’m Yue Zhong, Senior Agnis.”
This Agnis was an old, undying freak, who had been sealed for ten thousand years. Its strength was horrifying, and it should be privy to the secrets of the world. It was what Yue Zhong came for anyway, being respectful would not harm anyone.
Agnis stared at Yue Zhong and asked, “Is the world undergoing a mutation again?”
Yue Zhong asked curiously, “Again? It’s true that the world is mutating. Senior, in the past, could this world have undergone a change before?”
There was a strange glint in Agnis’s eyes, as it reminisced about the past, “That’s right. Ten thousand years ago, this world had undergone a mutation once, as most of the bring and prosperous civilizations were annihilated, and all intelligent life forms died then. I had been sealed beneath the sea for 10,000 years as well.
Yue Zhong felt his heart tremble, “That’s right, there were strange ancient weapons turning up recently, it should be the legacies of those civilizations of the past. Even a half-step Type 9 powerhouse like Agnis was sealed, don’t tell me the strongest expert then was already at the Type 9 realm, or… even someone who had crossed the legendary Type 10 realm?! However, if there was such an expert, he or she would have dominated Earth. Why is there no sign of such a person?”
Yue Zhong asked, “Senior Agnis, may I ask you about the world and God?”
It was rumored that there was something here beneath the sea that could enlighten one on the secrets of the world. It was apparently this 10,000-year-old Mutant Beast.
When Agnis heard those words, there was a flash of fear in its eyes, as it hesitated before sighing, “I don’t know much, to be honest. I only know this, all life forms of the 800 worlds are all just pawns in the cage of God, regardless where you come from. Even a Type 9 powerhouse is just a stronger worm. Only those who cross that realm could gain control of his or her own life.”
“Even if ordinary powerhouses cultivated with all their minds and time, they would not be able to breach the Type 9 bottleneck in 10,000 years. Based on what I know, within these 800 worlds, over the last millions of years, there had only been 20 heaven-defying characters that had broken through the Type 9 realm, reaching the legendary Type 10 realm and left the confines of these worlds, heading for some unknown domain.”
Yue Zhong’s face fell when he heard this, “A million years, and only 20 who broke through?! Seems like it’s really tough.”
Every single world had been governed by some powerful civilization at some point in time, with plenty of experts. Talents were definitely not lacking. Under such circumstances, to think there were only 20 Type 10 powerhouses. It was an extremely minuscule number.
Agnis’s head shook, and revealed a door beneath it, “Beyond these 800 worlds in God’s cage, there’s a world known as The Great God World. In every world that has a Type 9 expert, or a world that is mutating, there would be a door that leads to the Great God World. There are no limitations on the powerhouses that want to head there. The number of experts there are plenty, and you get all sorts of characters, with numerous resources. There are easily over a thousand Type 9 powerhouses there. There are even some at the peak of the Type 9 realm. The door that leads there is right here. As long you go through it, who knows, you might gain more knowledge from the Great God World.”
Yue Zhong looked at the door beneath Agnis, his eyes flashing with a strange glint, but he did not move.
After a moment of consideration, he pointed at the door, and a black light congealed to form a beautiful woman, who entered the gate.
Not too long after that, the beautiful Mech, who was controlled by Bai Yi, came back through the gateway, nodding to Yue Zhong, “It truly is a new world, and the energy seems to be thicker and more powerful than the current mutating Earth.”
After getting Bai Yi’s confirmation, Yue Zhong smiled at Agnis, “Senior Agnis, can I trouble you to step back about 50 li for the time being?”
Since the gateway was beneath Agnis, if it decided to take a bite at Yue Zhong while he was soaring through it, he would be powerless.
Agnis squinted, and spoke in a voice that was hard to discern if it was amused or annoyed, “You don’t trust me?”
Yue Zhong chuckled, “Senior Agnis, it’s not that I don’t trust you. However, I’ve never liked to leave my life in the hands of others.
Agnis replied without batting an eyelid, “And if I refuse, what do you intend to do?”
Yue Zhong spoke in a steely manner, “Then I can only choose to retreat, and come back some other time.”
A half-step Type 9 powerhouse was simply too terrifying. If Yue Zhong really swam over, it would be foolish. Agnis had just displayed how quick it was to flip, consuming Sea God Allexia in an instant. It was definitely not kind. Furthermore, Agnis definitely knew that Yue Zhong had the God-Devil Imprint, he was practically like Tang Sanzang to it. If it could consume Yue Zhong, who knew, it might actually evolve into the Type 9 realm. No one could withstand such an allure.
Agnis sighed softly, as it twisted its huge head, and made for the distance, “Alright, since you don’t trust me, I can only move away!”
Its body was extremely large, with a single movement, the entire seabed seemed to tremble.
All of a sudden, the ground beneath Yue Zhong split apart, as a single-horned serpent burst out, its teeth sharp and its jaws putrid. It tried to bite down on Yue Zhong.
The speed of the single-horned giant serpent was extremely fast, with the principles and laws of water behind its movement. There seemed to be no water resistance at all, as it reached 20 times the speed of sound. Even a Type 9 powerhouse would find it hard to dodge that bite.
At that instant, Yue Zhong’s heart was alarmed and he immediately channeled the God-Devil Domain, forming a powerful region around himself.
He then disappeared with a single thought, reappearing in the God-side of the Domain.
Agnis, whose expression had been friendly earlier, was now savage, as he laughed out maliciously, “God-Devil Domain, as expected, you’re an Oracle. You’re too wary, kid. Be good and let me eat you, alright? Like this, we can both be in one body, as I break past the Type 9 realm and become a Type 10 legend!”
Chapter 929: Entering the Great God World!
“I think it would be better for you to die and become the stepping stone for my evolution.”
Yue Zhong’s gaze turned cold, as the Heaven-Piercing Bow appeared in his hands. With a thought, the holy manifestations of the God Domain quickly surged into his bow, and a powerful arrow congealed before he released it at the head of Agnis.
The moment it was fired out, it absorbed an intense amount of atmospheric energy around, forming a huge pillar as it slammed into Agnis’s head.
A bright light radiated out of its head, as a huge energy shield formed and blocked in front of it.
The arrow from the Heaven-Piercing Bow slammed into the energy shield and tore into it easily, and proceeded to slam into Agnis’s head. It actually pierced through its head, causing a huge, bloody and gaping wound, as fresh blood splattered everywhere.
After that hit, the God Domain crumbled, while Yue Zhong revealed an exhausted look in his eyes.
The usage of the Heaven-Piercer Bow was taxing on him, if he did not channel all his strength into the arrow, it would not be able to pierce through Agnis’s head.
“Not right, it’s still not dead!!”
After the arrow penetrated Agnis’s head, Yue Zhong did not sense the influx of the life force, and his face fell before he retreated in an explosive manner.
From the seabed, 8 heads that looked like poisonous serpents shot out, their jaws opened wide, attacking Yue Zhong.
Inside the waters, even with Yue Zhong manipulating the atmospheric energy to split the water, his speed could not compare to those serpents.
In an instant, one of them appeared in front of Yue Zhong, biting at his chest viciously.
With a thought, Yue Zhong conjured an energy shield to appear in front of him.
The snake bit down viciously, crushing the shield, and was barely stopped for a second before it continued towards Yue Zhong.
The energy shield was effective against lower-leveled enemies, but against opponents of the same realm, it was too weak.
The huge snake swallowed Yue Zhong, as well as the other 3 women with him.
“No! I didn’t get him, how did he escape?”
As the snake bit down, the rest of the snakes twisted another way, their eyes scanning the area warily.
At that moment, in front of the world gate, there was a tear in space, and Yue Zhong shot out from within, turning into a beam of light as he flew right through it.
Even at his half-step Type 9 realm, Agnis was caught off-guard, and could only stare wide-eyed as Yue Zhong charged right through the gate.
Something strange then happened, the head of Agnis that had been injured quickly regenerated.
“The power of space! He actually can control space to some degree. Unbelievable!” Agnis was a half-step Type 9 powerhouse and could sense the vibrations of spatial laws.
Agnis stared at the gate, its eyes flashing with a strange glint, “That was definitely not his own strength. That means to say, he has a spatial treasure. That’s great! In order to exit from the Great God World, he has to pass through this door, I just have to wait here, and eat him when he gets back. Like that, the spatial treasure on him would become mine. With that, plus the consumption of this Oracle, I will definitely be able to break through to the Type 9 realm.”
As it thought to this point, Agnis sat in front of the gate, and hundreds of serpents burst out from the ground, eyeing the gate with vigilance.
It was true that anyone could pass through this world gate, even a Type 10 powerhouse could make use of this gate to leave the Great God World. However, compared to the Gates of Hell, this gate only allowed life forms not more than 15m tall. Agnis was over hundreds of meters tall, it was impossible for it to pass.
It was due to this limitation, that many giant Type 9 Mutant Beasts could not make use of the gate to invade other worlds, stuck in their worlds.
“Damn it, that half-step Type 9 Mutant Beast was truly vicious, I was almost killed there.”
In a breath, Yue Zhong had charged out of the gate. Just as he exited, black qi poured out from his wounds, as he swayed and fell to the ground.
On his waist, there were a few bloody holes, as black qi came gushing out, while tainted blood flowed out as well.
Although he had used the spatial powers of the Radiant Battleship to escape death, he had truly been bitten by Agnis, and the blackened blood was flowing without stop.
The teeth of the Mutant Beast were sharp were incredibly poisonous that could kill even a Type 8 powerhouse. If it was not for Yue Zhong’s physique having been transformed by the God-Devil Body, and his blood changed into the golden blood which was full of vitality, he could have already been poisoned to death. Even so, the incredible poison was enough to make him dizzy.
After passing through the gate, he came to a huge mountain gorge. He sat down weakly, gasping for breath, as the golden blood continued to flow out. After a while, all the black poison within his body was completely forced out.
At the same time, he waved his hands and sent out numerous nano flies to scout the surroundings.
They were Bai Yi’s eyes and ears and could feedback all intelligence and information back to Yue Zhong through her.
The Third Order God-Devil Body was truly impervious to many poisons, to the extent that it was able to force out the poison of a half-step Type 9 powerhouse. Had it been any other Type 8 experts, they would be invaded by the poison and turned to a blackened corpse by now.
Once the poison was out, Yue Zhong pulled out a vial of Type 9 Mutant Beast blood to drink, feeling his insides boil. After a while, his energy began to recover swiftly.
The blood essence of a Type 9 Mutant Beast was filled with incomparable power and was a powerful tonic and source of nourishment.
A single drop of it would allow an ordinary human to go through a metamorphosis and improvement in physique. That was how precious it was.
After fully recovering, Yue Zhong quickly got to his feet, observing his surroundings, before heading out.
The path was long and narrow, going for about 80 km. They continued walking until they finally exited the path.
The exit was on top of a mountain range that was over 8,000m in height, and it seemed as though they were touching the clouds. Yue Zhong stood there and swept a glance below, using his eyes with the God-Devil Body to observe and he could see that about 10km below, there was a human city, with human-like figures entering and exiting the city.
He flickered and flew down towards the city.
He had just flown forwards about a dozen meters, when suddenly, out of a cave along the mountain wall, there was a huge horde of black Mutant Bugs the size of palms, with sharp stings and powerful jaw pincers, that rushed out at Yue Zhong,
Yue Zhong glanced at the horde of bugs and frowned. With a thought, a huge force pressured down on the bugs.
The moment they were enveloped by the pressure, they were squashed together. However, there were some of them who were struggling wildly, without any signs of being injured.
Yue Zhong looked at them in shock, “What?! Their resistance and defense are really high!”
After all, Yue Zhong might have just thrown out a casual grab, but his grab could easily flatten a Type 7 Mutant Beast. Such a strike was actually unable to wipe out the Mutant Bugs, their defense was truly terrifying.
Following that, even more Mutant Bugs were flying out from the cave towards him.
“Since I can’t crush you, I’ll suck your blood, it should do the trick.”
He swept them a glance, and the blood radiance shot out, enveloping them.
The blood radiance was evidently the bane of these Mutant Bugs, as the moment they came in contact, their blood was absorbed dry, and they started to fall out of the sky like raindrops.
In just a few breaths, the blood radiances had absorbed the bugs cleanly, turning them into dry husks.
After wiping out all the Mutant Bugs, there was suddenly a roar of rage, as a shadow flashed out and slammed towards Yue Zhong,
At that moment, there was a flash of a blade, as a cold light sliced towards his head.
Chapter 930: Type 8 Mutant Bug!
Yue Zhong used all of his strength, and arched his body back, as the terrifying blade sliced past his chest, causing a deep gash where one could see the bone and blood was flowing.
With a thought, he activated his God-Devil Domain once more, and a huge region of about 60 km was enshrouded by his domain.
At the next moment, he willed it and retreated about 5 km, standing within the God Domain. His gaze swept out at the entity that had launched a sneak attack on him.
That life form that almost sliced Yue Zhong in half was a huge Type 8 Mutant Bug that had a pair of wings, forelimbs like praying mantis, pincers like ants, with thick and power locust-like legs. As it stood straight, it towered at 2 meters.
The moment the bug was shrouded by the Devil Domain, it was immediately assaulted by the devilish energy, and its speed was instantly reduced.
The countless demonic manifestations and devils were rushing at the Type 8 Mutant Bug, lunging for it, and biting whatever area they could.
The Mutant Bug struggled frantically, killing any devils that it could, and the entities continued to disintegrate as it rampaged.
Unfortunately, the manifestations were limitless, as they continued to form and attacked the Mutant Bug.
As the Devil Domain continued to assail the Mutant Bug, within moments, it was already riddled with injuries. It used all its strength to struggle, but no matter how, it was still being attacked viciously.
As it struggled and fought back, slamming everywhere with all its might, it slaughtered many of the manifestations in a bid to escape the domain. It was to no avail, as the numbers continued to grow, while the edge of the Domain was not so easily broken.
After a dozen breaths, the Mutant bug was already overwhelmed by the demons and devils, falling helplessly.
Since Yue Zhong had reached the Type 8 realm, his Domain had become as powerful as well. It was able to kill Type 8 powerhouses now. The Type 8 Mutant Bug was only at the initial-Type 8 realm, with speed being its strongest point. The moment it entered the Devil Domain, it was suppressed. Had it been a strength-type Beast, it would have fared better. However, an agility-type would suffer under such circumstances.
At that instant, Yue Zhong appeared on top of its body, and slammed down on its head with his fist, instantly turning it into minced meat.
When the Mutant Bug’s head was destroyed, a huge source of life force surged into Yue Zhong, nourishing his body.
Kacha, kacha, kacha!
The moment the bug was killed, the entire mountain that had housed the horde of bugs began to crumble, as more Type 8 Mutant bugs began to fly out of the mountain, surging towards Yue Zhong.
In an instant, he was suddenly met with over a dozen Type 8 Mutant Bugs.
If each of these bugs was placed on Earth, they would be able to decimate an entire country, turning into an Overlord-class character. However, in this Great God World, just a mountain itself already contained 13 such beasts.
Due to the huge area that the God-Devil Domain covered, which was over 60 km, within the domain, the Mutant Beasts were charging at him in a frenzy.
At the same time, other Mutant beasts which had not attacked him were enshrouded within as well, and the beasts within the mountain range began to view him as an enemy.
Countless powerful beasts were charging towards Yue Zhong’s location in a frenzy.
Yue Zhong looked at them, a cruel expression flashing in his eyes. His body charged forwards as he appeared in on top of those Type 8 Mutant Bugs like a specter, his right hand punching out at the heads, exploding them one by one.
In the God-Devil Domain, Yue Zhong was basically invincible. In a few moments, he had already taken them out.
The life force continued to fill him up, and it reached the maximum point of the initial-realm, causing him to break through, and reach the mid-Type 8 realm.
Once he reached it, he quickly congealed his Yin-Yang Palm and sent it viciously out at the enraged horde of Mutant Beasts.
The entire mountain range trembled as the huge palm imprint pressed down from the skies, slamming into the horde of Mutant Beasts without mercy.
Under the impact, many of them instantly disintegrated, as numerous sources of life force continued to surge into him.
The others roared in rage, channeling their innate abilities to fight back against the palm, intending to break it.
However, no matter how they struggled, there was no way they could break it, and the entire palm came crashing fully into the ground, turning every single beast underneath it into meat paste.
When the beasts were all killed by Yue Zhong, he absorbed another huge bout of life force.
By the time that the thousands of Mutant Beasts were dealt with, there was only 6 Type 8 Mutant Beasts still struggling within the Devil Domain.
They fought back madly, utilizing 6 different forms of innate abilities, trying to slam their way out of the Domain.
Ice shards, flames, wind blades, lightning, water jets, even stone edges, were all cast and thrown at the Domain, in a bid to break it apart so that they could escape.
However, while the abilities were able to vanquish some of the devils and demonic entities, they could not break through or tear the Domain apart, and could only continue to struggle madly and in futile.
