Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 36, Secret

Linley’s heart shook as he remembered what Muba had originally told him…

“Linley, the Lord of Bluefire City is one of the five Kings, Lord Bluefire! Lord Bluefire is very secretive. Not only is he extremely powerful, he almost never shows himself. It’s uncertain as to whether or not he is even residing within Bluefire City. Within Bluefire City, the person whose fame and authority is only second to Lord Bluefire would be Lord Adkins.”

Linley looked towards the nearby Leylin.

“He…he is actually one of the five Kings of the Gebados Planar Prison, Bluefire?”

It was hard to say exactly how long the Gebados Planar Prison had existed for. Within it, the number of Deities was absolutely numberless. However, there were five people who stood at its peak and were acclaimed respectfully as its ‘Kings’. To be titled a ‘King’ in a planar prison…anyone with a hint of common sense would understand how powerful such a person must be.

“Adkins, rise. We have both left Gebados, and I am no longer the Lord of Bluefire City. There’s no need for you to refer to me as Lord of the City anymore.” Leylin said with a calm laugh.

Adkins rose respectfully, and said, “Yes, but the respect which Adkins feels for you, Lord Bluefire, will never change.” Meanwhile, Barnas just stood off to one side respectfully. The fame of ‘Bluefire’ was simply too astonishing and overawing.

The five Kings were invincible individuals!

“You…you are Bluefire?” Bebe looked at Leylin in astonishment.

“What, do I not look the part?” Leylin’s crimson eyebrows lifted up, and he laughed towards Bebe.

Bebe muttered, “That’s not it. Only, I heard the Boss say that Bluefire is one of the five Kings of the Gebados Planar Prison. Since he’s so powerful, I figured his subordinates should be Highgods. Also…I thought that Bluefire was his name.”

“Haha…”

Leylin began to laugh heartily. “Why would I, Bluefire, necessarily have to have Highgods for my subordinates? Is that the only way I would be able to demonstrate my status?”

Adkins, off to the side, laughed as well and said respectfully, “Why would Lord Bluefire need any subordinates? Even if a group of Highgods came, in front of Lord Bluefire, they wouldn’t be much.” This was no joking matter. All five of the Kings of the Gebados Planar Prison had won that title through proving their strength in slaughter.

Amongst the five Kings, Lord Bluefire had actually trained for the shortest period of time.

He was also the most dazzling, eye-catching figure!

Bluefire, also known as ‘Zacharias Leylin’, rose to sudden prominence within the Planar Prison, winning every battle he fought. Even powerful Highgods, before Bluefire, had to bow and submit themselves. To this day, there has been no one capable of withstanding Lord Bluefire’s attack.

“Bluefire is nothing more than a nickname.” Leylin laughed calmly.

But Adkins said, “The name ‘Bluefire’ is a name which, due to the countless slaughters his lordship engaged in, the countless experts of the entire Gebados Planar Prison acknowledge and submit to. Who in Gebados hasn’t heard of that battle by the Blue River?”

Leylin simply chuckled.

No matter how arrogant Adkins was, in the face of Leylin, he had to abase himself. This was nothing more than reality! Adkins, facing Leylin, didn’t have even the slightest thought of ‘struggling’ against him. Because Adkins knew that he couldn’t take so much as a single blow from Bluefire!

The battle at the Blue River was what gave rise to the name, ‘Bluefire’.

It also scared countless people silly. Many people even came to believe that Bluefire was the most powerful of the five Kings. But of course, this was never proven because Gebados was simply too vast, and the five Kings were all separated in their own regions. In addition, they intentionally avoided making enemies out of each other. After all, there were no treasures in Gebados worth them fighting each other over.

“This is a true, ultimate expert!” Linley’s heart was filled with even greater veneration for this ‘Leylin’, while at the same time, a surge of heat filled his heart.

Even Adkins was so apprehensive and respectful in front of Leylin, who had been able to reach the top tier of Gebados.

“Adkins, stop standing there. Come, sit down. You can sit right next to Linley.” Leylin pointed as he spoke.

Naturally, Adkins wouldn’t dare to disobey Leylin’s orders. He immediately bowed respectfully. “Thank you, Lord Bluefire.” And then, he sat down next to Linley, while even offering Linley a friendly smile.

Linley could only smile back as well.

“Hmph.” Bebe, next to Linley, let out a cold sneer.

Adkins’ eyebrows instantly rose up. He glanced at Bebe, and then immediately laughed. “This must be Bebe.” Bebe just grunted in reply, but Adkins wasn’t angry. Laughing, he said, “Bebe, I know you are a bit unhappy. What happened in the past was the fault of my people.”

Linley and Bebe glanced at Adkins, somewhat surprised.

“What happened, Adkins?” Leylin spoke out.

Adkins smiled and said, “Lord Bluefire, this is actually just a minor issue. My subordinate, a God named Ojwin, had a bit of a small grudge against my friend Linley over here. Afterwards, Ojwin invited several of the Gods under my command go to Linley’s residence to get revenge. However, in the end, it was my side that suffered losses.”

“Oh?” Hearing this, Leylin was mildly intrigued as well.

Linley and Bebe glanced at each other.

“Boss, it seems this Adkins wants to apologize?” Bebe said mentally to Linley.

“I’m not sure either.” Linley was also puzzled.

Adkins was a Highgod after all. Was he about to apologize?

“Barnas, come over here.” Adkins said. “Although you lost a divine body during that battle, it was, after all, you and your people who picked that fight. If we think about it, it was your group’s fault. Go ahead and offer Linley and Bebe an apology.”

Linley and Bebe started.

Barnas actually came over. Filled with an apologetic air, he said, “Mr. Linley, Mr. Bebe, I truly am sorry for what happened that year.”

“Mr. Barnas, no need to be like this. This matter was primarily instigated by that Ojwin.” Linley spoke out. “Mr. Barnas, I imagine that you were just deceived by him.” Since he had been given face, Linley would of course give face back as well.

Adkins nodded. “Linley, don’t worry. From today onwards, I guarantee to you that Ojwin will definitely not make any more trouble for you in the future.”

Linley couldn’t help but laugh in his heart.

It seemed as though Olivier wouldn’t have to hide within that pocket dimension any longer.

When Adkins had brought Barnas to pay a visit to Mount Copper Gong to meet with ‘Bluefire’ Leylin, Ojwin was still back in the distant O’Brien Empire. Him, Hanbritt, and Gatenby were all together drinking wine and chatting. Over the past twenty years, the relationship between the three of them had become quite good.

Barnas had a special status, after all, and he was thus rather distant from them.

“That astonishing energy wave from the west most likely was produced by a Highgod.” Gatenby rumbled.

“Right. But it doesn’t have anything to do with us.” Ojwin laughed. “Since it involves Highgods, let’s just peaceably drink our wine here.”

Hanbritt shook his head. “Highgods? They are very powerful. If one day, I were to obtain a divine Highgod spark, wouldn’t I also become a Highgod? Only, it is unfortunate that I don’t know how long it will be before the day I acquire a divine Highgod spark.”

“A divine Highgod spark is something I dream about.” Ojwin let out a sigh as well.

Hanbritt suddenly put down his wine cup. Slightly tipsy, he grinned at Ojwin. “Ojwin, I’m going to tell you a secret!”

“I know what you are going to say!” That Gatenby laughed loudly as well. “Secret my ass. Barnas and I both know it.”

Hanbritt rolled his eyes, then said, “You know, I know, but…Ojwin doesn’t know.” These words caused Ojwin’s heart to be filled with a hint of curiosity, and he hurriedly looked towards Hanbritt.

Hanbritt grinned merrily, “Ojwin, I’ll tell you something, Lord Adkins, in his interspatial ring, has a divine Highgod spark!”

“What?!” Ojwin’s heart shook.

A divine Highgod spark?!

Ojwin dreamed about one day acquiring a Highgod spark, but currently, Ojwin only had his divine light clone.

Who knew if that divine Highgod spark was light-style?

Gatenby nodded and said, “He does have a divine Highgod spark, only, we aren’t sure what element it belongs to. But I am certain that it is neither lightning-style nor earth-style.”

“Why are you so certain?” Ojwin hurriedly asked.

Gatenby laughed, “Lord Adkins himself doesn’t need it, of course. You know what the relationship between Lord Adkins and Barnas is like. If Barnas was able to use it, Lord Adkins definitely would give it to Barnas. Barnas originally had two bodies. At Dragonblood Castle, it was his divine earth clone which was destroyed. Right now, his body is a lightning clone. Since Barnas isn’t able to use it, then it definitely isn’t earth element, nor is it lightning element.”

“Right.” Ojwin nodded slightly.

“Can it be that the two of you, my friends, also aren’t able to use that divine Highgod spark?” Ojwin asked.

Hanbritt let out a sneer, “In the heart of his lordship, the three of us are far inferior to Barnas. We’re just his henchmen. How could his lordship be willing to waste a divine Highgod spark on us?”

“Whenever I think of it, I feel uncomfortable. Come, let’s drink.” Gatenby said hurriedly.

“Drink, drink.” Ojwin hurriedly raised his cup, only in his heart, Ojwin began to scheme…

The wild wind howled. A silver-haired elder flew respectfully behind a handsome youth as they flew through the air.

When he was at Mount Copper Gong, Adkins had been all smiles. In front of ‘Bluefire’ Leylin, Adkins had been exceedingly polite, and he had also been very warm and friendly to Linley and Bebe. But now that they had flown out of Mount Copper Gong, Adkins couldn’t help but frown, his heart filled with frustration.

“Lord Bluefire has hidden himself within the Yulan continent as well. Nine out of ten, he is doing it for the treasures of the Necropolis of the Gods as well.”

Adkins’ mind was in a state of chaos when he thought of this.

He truly wanted to acquire the treasures within the Necropolis of the Gods. “Me, compete against Lord Bluefire?”

As soon as he thought of this, Adkins felt a surge of helplessness. He knew very well that in front of Bluefire, he didn’t even have the ability to fight back.

The awesome fame of the King ‘Bluefire’ didn’t just come from public acclaim; it was won by Leylin through repeated slaughters and countless rivers of blood. There was no need to harbor any suspicions about the amount of power which ‘Bluefire’ Leylin possessed!

“Milord? Are you preparing to give up?” Barnas asked through his divine sense.

Adkins took a deep breath, then sent a response back with his own divine sense. “Give up? Impossible!”

Barnas was startled.

Adkins said to himself, “At worst, I die. But if I succeed, I’ll hopefully be able to suppress Bluefire in power. I can’t possibly fight Bluefire head on. For now, I have only a single path forward…” Adkins made up his mind, and his gaze sharpened and firmed.

“We reached the imperial capital.”

Barnas and Adkins immediately charged downwards, flying directly into the imperial palace.

Returning to the imperial palace, the first thing which Adkins did was to summon Ojwin into the palace. Ojwin, who was currently drinking and chatting with Hanbritt and Gatenby, immediately entered the palace upon receiving the order, ignoring everything else.

“Milord.” Ojwin knelt down respectfully on one knee.

Adkins turned and stared at him coldly. “Ojwin, there is something I must warn you about. I know that your son was killed. But remember this…starting forward, forget about getting revenge. No matter what, do not cause any trouble for a single person of Dragonblood Castle!”

Ojwin started.

Forget about revenge?

Although in the past twenty years, Ojwin had calmed down, that didn’t mean he had given up his desire for revenge. The goal of vengeance for the death of his son had been engraved into Ojwin’s heart.

“Hmph!” Adkins let out a cold snort. “What, didn’t you hear me?”

The nearby Barnas said seriously as well, “Ojwin, this has to do with an important affair of his lordship. If because of your small affairs, his lordship’s major affairs are ruined, then…even death wouldn’t expiate your crimes.”

Ojwin immediately prostrated himself and said hurriedly, “Lord Adkins, don’t worry. From today onwards, I, Ojwin, definitely won’t go make trouble for anyone in Dragonblood Castle. This affair of getting revenge, I, Ojwin, will definitely never consider again!” But in his heart, Ojwin was howling with fury, “Revenge? No, even if I die, I won’t give it up. All I will do is temporarily restrain myself. After…after I get that divine Highgod spark…”

Ojwin greatly desired to acquire that Highgod spark!

“You can leave now.” Adkins said calmly.

“Yes.” Ojwin bowed, then left.

  1. “In the heart of his lordship, the three of us are far inferior to Gatenby”. Should be “In the heart of his lordship, the three of us are far inferior to Barnas” ?

  2. Thanks for the chapter.
    This answer my question about Bluefire’s name.
    Though, i wonder how come Adkins didn’t recongize his brothers as being close to bluefire.

    I guess this proves that if you are deity training in 1 element, you can use a spark of a different element.
    Otherwise, why would they be sure the spark is not earth element since Barnas has only lighting element clone remaining? Wouldn’t be certain only for lighting element?

    Beirut vs Adkins incoming.
    1) Adkins knows he can’t compete against Bluefire in the NotG 1000 years from now. So he says he has 1 options left
    2) If he can’t compete, why not take an option that involves him not competing against bluefire
    3) Option is to go into NotG earlier then 1000 years, when it is officially opens (and Bluefire will be on said trip).
    4) The only way to get it to open early is to bug the guardian of NotG, Beirut.
    5) Adkins doesn’t know about Beirut strength, no does he realize Bluefire implies Beirut is above or around his level (his referring to the Bluefire)
    6) Since Adkins doesn’t have a suitable reason for Beirut to open, he’ll attack Beirut, unknown of part 5.

    Any bets on how the fight goes?
    I say Beirut tanks the attack that would have killed highgod to show he is not one, then ask for any last words before munching on his divine spark.

    Ugh, why won’t Ojwin die already. Even a high god spark won’t do anything against a normal pre existing high god (early stage high god > spark high god since they have to take time to fuse, and spend much more time using not original insight to make attacks)

    1. Adkins didn’t recongize his brothers as being close to bluefire
      He recognized them by using his divine sense, even before he flew to the place. But Leylin also has OP stealth cloak techniques, so Adkins thought maybe only the attendant Gods had escaped and not their master.

      why would they be sure the spark is not earth element
      Read more carefully, about which element was the now-dead clone (killed by rat king bros)

      Even a high god spark won’t do anything against a normal pre existing high god
      The strongest enemies Ojwin wants to fight are the Gods Dylin & Tarosse, and that too only to fend them off till he kills Olivier.
      In most cases, Spark-Highgod > Non-spark-God … and his light clone is also non-spark afaik, the fire clone was the one that used a fire demigod spark to form.

      1. 1) True, I was just overthinking it, as last chapter chapter gave me the impression they weren’t as important as Adkins in the city.

        2) Why did you point this out? The earth element clone was destroyed…. So hence my question about about the earth element (chapter 21 didn’t say which element was that spark anyways).

        3) Ojwin was told that Beirut is protecting the castle, so attacking anyone in the castle, means fighting Beirut. You are thinking of before the Rat Kings shows their divine clone.
        Should have mentioned I was referring to Beirut at this point since Beirut is at least High God level.

        1. The clone might have been destroyed but he already had the hi god spark before escaping Gebados so why would he not have given it to him before escaping if it was compatible?

          1. True, though I’m assuming it due to no need to use the spark at the time.
            For high levels that care about fusion and power, they prefer to rank up naturally without a spark. After all, under Adkins protection, why would Barnas have to worry about being god level?

            However situations has changed when he lost his clone, as he is somewhat cornered in a way. He is a lot weaker, and more likelier to die.

  3. (We’re allowed to discuss spoiler part of next chapter right?)

    Next chapter title is interesting, I wonder if Hodan is going to do anything now that Sadista is dead – maybe, contacting rest of his clan to get another Highgod into Yulan continent? Considering there is a ‘price to pay’ and he only got to let in a small group earlier, it probably won’t be easy , maybe something like another 100k years as gatekeeper lol.

    Haha, considering that he’s in a clan opposed to the Indigo Palace and told Linley that he drank with Baruch in the Infernal Realm … that ‘drink’ was probably during some treaty negotiations lol.

    1. Ren allows the next chapter discussion as otherwise, he’ll hide it.

      Though, the content part, not really (lots of rule breakers here occasionally).
      Ren says a lot of people don’t read the spoiler content yet.

      Though, your post itself doesn’t have to do with the spoiler content.
      I don’t think Hodan is that connected with Sadista’s side, rather I see him more as a neutral with an opinion type (which is my image of any planar overseer).
      Considering his a driver between planes, don’t think the price of letting people from higher plane come to lower has anything to do with him, rather it is more for the the person’s coming in to pay the price.

      1. didnt he basically say they were in the same clan? and yea i think the price is from the person comming through although i kept thinking the price would have been something that lowered the persons power (eg damaged soul) but Sadista seemed to be in perfect working order so i wonder what it could be

        1. Either you thought Beirut has a super regen power, not sure how you thought crossing to lower means your soul get damaged

          Being in the same clan, i’m not certain.
          What was said was “Lord Sadista [Sa’di’si’ta], it is my honor to be able to work on behalf of the clan!”
          it could mean the clan is famous, and is employing Hodan. Somewhat how Linley said it was an honor to work for the Wargod a few times and went to NotG under is count despite not being part of O’Brien group.
          Well, i’ll say that is my opinion for now and no need to discussion.

  4. ♥Thank you for the chapter my wonderful friends♥

  5. Wait… what? This… this is…! This is a new chapter! What kind of magic is this?! I would have missed this by about 8 hours if i hadn’t checked reddit!

    Thanks for the chapter!

  6. Ch. 36 laugh count: 11
    Ch. 36 sigh count: 1

    Again, the laughs have scored an overwhelming victory against the sighs. Perhaps this is because the presence of Lord Bluefire just brings joy to people like Santa at Christmas? We’ll see if the laughs can continue their lead into the next few chapters and books.

    P.S. -Ojwin… that scheming shmuck. Linley may not have to knock him down a peg or two after Adkins is done with him…

    1. Im pretty sure that the laughs and the sighs are close to 4000-5000 in the whole book separately. Maybe for both of those laughs and sighs are OVER 9000! …Dont you think? 😀

      PS: I haven’t read the whole book so this is a guess.

  7. Thanks Ren! Adkins is so fake. Pretending to be so respectful when he just wants enough power to kill Leylin. Him and Ojwin are a match made in heaven.

    1. I agree with you. While there is nothing wrong with having a goal and some ambition, many of these guys have characters I wouldn’t want to associate with. I can understand respecting other people’s skills because of the hard work, effort, and skill required to get there.

      There is a vast difference between wanting to improve to better yourself and to protect your family and loved ones, and wanting to grab power to inforce your will upon others.

      BTW, thanks for help making this chapter happen today. 🙂

  8. Thanks for the chapter Ren, I Eat Tomatoes, Firo’s Ahoge, TG of Australia, MG of the UK, NS of Sweden, slez, HHL of California, and JL of Texas!!

    Good stuff, good stuff!

  9. Thanks for the chapters, RWX and donors.

    Hm, so Ojwin wants the spark. How? Perhaps new arrivals from the Infernal Realm come. They end up meeting Adkins or his underlings, there is a fight, eventually Adkins is killed, Ojwin manages to snatch the spark. Good luck with that.

    1. I believe he is too blinded by revenge. As the one who put his son in harm’s way, it’s interesting how much he’s scheming blaming only Oliver, who was only defending himself.

    2. Instead of fighting infernal realm, I say fight Beirut, see in my above post on reasoning on why fight Beirut.

      Then Beirut may not care about Adkins’s ring that may not take it (he already has goods from NotG that is way better then anything Adkins has). The sparks he get from Adkins though, he’ll keep those and noms on those.

      Then friendship will be tested among the Adkins follower for the his interspacial ring for the high god spark. Ojwin want it. The other 2 also implies they want it but are smart enough to not schem to get it at the time. Barnas may want the ring for the other stuff inside it.

      If a fight does happen over the ring, Qin Yu stealing the Jade sword when 2 other guys fighting in stellar transformation happens comes to mind. Or when the Bear and Dragon fought and almost killed each other, and Linley get upgrade points.
      More or less because high level above MC are fighting (usually for loot), and MC gain either upgrades or loot (hasn’t happened much in CD since not many fights for loot till post NotG)
      So if the 4 Gods does fight for Adkins ring, Linley would swoop in and steal ring?

  10. “I’ll hopefully be able to suppress Bluefire in power.” should be “surpass Bluefire in power.”

    I am in awe of the translations. I expected a fatigued mind would easily accidentally transpose Linley and Leylin. Anyway, thanks to all the donors. Wanted to thank the previous ones too but blocked by login issues.

  11. It would be the funniest thing if Ojwin went through all kinds of trouble and with a bit of luck managed to claim the spark …. but it turns out to be a darkness type spark. I find it questionable that he has begun scheming to get his hands on it when it there is only a 20% chance that he could use it.

    1. With the discussion so far, the general idea is you can use sparks of other elements, though still prefer your current element
      So he’ll be disappointed, but still try to fuse right before he dies, hopefully by eaten by Bebe.

      Actually, food for thought: what happens if a deity in the process of fusing a spark dies?
      Say deity is God and fusing with a high god. Would the drop be a god or high god spark?
