Book 21, The Peak – Chapter 41, Can He Actually Be…?

“Whoosh…”

Within the multicolored reaches of chaotic space, illusory ‘meteors’ of light and energy flew everywhere, forming the flood of rainbow-colored chaotic energy that filled the region.

More than ten figures were standing there within chaotic space, astonishment on all of their faces.

“I didn’t imagine that Orloff actually taught his ‘Golden Samsara Body’ to Augusta! Hmph, the blood essences of the Four Divine Beasts…in the end, they ended up in Orloff’s hands.” The Chief Sovereign of Destruction, Wodred, had a sunken, sinister look on his face. “It seems that Linley traded the blood essences of the Four Divine Beasts to Augusta, and Augusta then gave it to Orloff!”

The look on Wodred’s face grew increasingly ugly. “Linley, he…ugh!” Wodred felt frustration burning in his chest . Right at this moment, however, a hazy, illusory phantom began to emerge from Augusta’s body.

“Eh?” Linley was startled. He grew cautious, instantly fusing his water-type Sovereign clone and wind-type Sovereign clone back into his main body. “Linley, if you want to stay alive, you’d best depart!” Augusta said coldly.

“If you have any techniques, put them on display. Otherwise, I’m going to strike again.” Linley seemed quite magnanimous, but in reality, he was extremely cautious right now. He no longer felt certain he knew everything there was to know about Augusta; if he continued to attack with abandon, he might be tricked. It was best to be careful and defend, and first investigate the situation.

“Hmph. Die, then.” Augusta let out a cold sneer. Linley grew all the more cautious.

Augusta’s eyes flashed like lightning as he stared coldly at Linley. The illusory images surrounding his body suddenly spread out, forming into an enormous illusion of a golden titan that was a hundred meters tall. The awe-inspiring aura of the titan caused even Linley to grow anxious. “An innate divine ability? What sort of divine beast is Augusta? But he can’t be; he has 182 children!”

Linley had never heard anyone say that Augusta was a divine beast.

“BANG!” A golden blur shot out from Augusta’s moth, shooting at high speed towards Linley. Linley focused his concentration and used his Life Overgod Sword to block. But when that golden, illusory light struck against Linley’s Life Overgod Sword…

“Bang.” It disappeared.

“What?!” Linley was shocked. “That weak?” Just now, judging from Augusta’s attitude, Linley had thought that Augusta was preparing some supreme technique against him. He never imagined that this was just a fake technique. The attack power of that golden illusion probably wouldn’t have been able to scratch Linley, even if it had hit him head on. Clearly, it was just meant to make him nervous.

“Haha, Linley, you really are easy to fool.” Augusta’s wild laughter resonated in Linley’s mind.

“I was tricked again!” Linley’s face changed. By now, Augusta had already moved ten thousand kilometers away.

“Swoosh!” Linley instantly increased his speed to the limit, once more chasing at high speed. But within a short period of time, Linley understood something. “The Golden Samsara Body only allows him to strengthen his body, and make his material attacks slightly stronger! This is much like how my Dragonform strengthens my own body. However, given that I am ten times stronger than him, that increase in physical power isn’t able to change the balance of power by much at all.”

“Bang!” The inky jade fused power within Linley’s body was wildly bursting forth. Linley, in Dragonform, was constantly, ceaselessly closing the gap between himself and Augusta, as he continued to chase at full speed.

“Linley actually managed to increase in power by this much! That bit of power gained from the ‘Golden Samsara Body’ technique is completely useless against him.” Although Augusta acted arrogant and brash, in his heart, he felt miserable. Glancing backwards, he saw Linley continue to chase after him, and he said to himself…“Orloff, come quickly! Otherwise…”

The Celestial Realm. The Orloff Gardens.

There were eight Sovereigns who lived within the Orloff Gardens. One of them was naturally the master of the Orloff Gardens, Orloff.

“Linley actually managed to increase in power by this much and drive Augusta to such a state?” The white-haired, white-robed Orloff stood straight, his gaze cold and calm. “If he’s forced to his wits end, given Augusta’s temperament, he will definitely do ‘it’…and Wodred and the others will definitely be able to guess…”

“I have no other choice!” The white-robed elder, Orloff, waved his hand. Instantly, the entire Orloff Gardens began to rapidly shrink in size, then transformed into a blurry light that flew into Orloff’s body.

“Lord Orloff!” The servants in the garden, along with the other seven Sovereigns, all stared at him, puzzled. Why had Orloff taken away the Orloff Gardens?

“Slash…” Orloff’s face was heavy but calm. With a wave of his hand, he tore a rift in space in front of him, then immediately stepped into chaotic space.

These seven Sovereigns were the seven Sovereigns who had chosen to serve Orloff. Manlu and Borte were amongst their number as well. “Lord Orloff seems to be in a bad mood.” Manlu said with a frown. “In the past, no matter what difficulties Lord Orloff encountered, he would face them with a smile. Nothing was able to affect his temperament. But just now…”

A blue-haired, three-eyed beauty said, also puzzled, “What’s more, Lord Orloff rarely takes the Orloff Gardens with him when he travels.”

“Let’s go. We’ll go take a look as well.” The Sovereign of Fire, Borte, waved his hand as well, also tearing a rift in space, then immediately took the lead in entering it. The other six puzzled Sovereigns didn’t hesitate; they immediately charged into chaotic space after him, all wanting to learn what had happened.

But when they spread out their divine sense…

“What!?” The faces of the seven Sovereigns changed. “Linley and Augusta, two Chief Sovereign-level experts…” By the time they entered chaotic space, there were already more than twenty Sovereigns watching this fight. “No wonder Lord Orloff went over there. So it is because Augusta is in trouble.” Those subordinate Sovereigns all knew about the relationship between Orloff and Augusta. “Let’s go. Let’s fly over there, but let’s stay some distance away. Otherwise, if we are hit by any ripples of power, we might die from them.”

The seven Sovereigns also drew closer. Actually, many of the spectating Sovereigns were drawing closer towards Linley and Augusta. Only, at the same time, they maintained a minimum distance of at least a few billion kilometers. At this distance, given a Sovereign’s reaction speed, they should be absolutely safe.

Energy ripples couldn’t possibly travel so far and still have enough power to injure a Sovereign. Linley and Augusta were only a few hundred kilometers apart. To close from ten thousand kilometers to a few hundred; from this, one could tell the difference in speed between the two.

A thousand years ago, Linley’s speed was already slightly faster than Augusta’s. Because his power had increased tenfold when he fused the four profound mysteries together, although that was primarily in terms of attack power, and his speed hadn’t increased by much, it had still increased by a bit. The Profound Mysteries of Explosion did, after all, contain some aspects that would help one move more quickly. Augusta’s body was transforming and his speed was increasing, but even so, he was still somewhat slower than Linley.

“Oh, Orloff came?” Linley’s divine sense easily located Orloff. Augusta discovered Orloff’s arrival as well. Overjoyed, he hurriedly sent to Linley, “Linley, the news that you are chasing after and trying to kill me has already made its way to Lord Orloff. You should know…that after this Planar War, Lord Orloff owes me yet another favor. If you dare attack me, Lord Orloff will definitely kill you.”

“Hmph. Augusta, save your strength. There’s no point to you threatening me.” Linley laughed coldly, and his speed increased once more as he pulled to within two hundred kilometers.

“Linley.” A warm, gentle voice rang out. “Lord Orloff.” Linley replied with great courtesy. Orloff was currently hurrying over from the Celestial Realm, while Linley and Augusta had just flown out from the Divine Light Plane not long ago. The distance between the two planes was simply too fast. Even if Orloff flew over at maximum speed, he would most likely still need several minutes to arrive. For Sovereigns…a single second was enough to exchange countless blows. Multiple minutes? That was enough for Linley and Augusta to finish their fight to the death.

“Linley, Augusta is my good friend. No matter what sort of hatred you and Augusta bear each other, I would like to urge you, Linley, to temporarily let it rest.” Orloff sent. “Impossible.” Linley refused. “Give me some face. What do you say?” Orloff was still very calm.

Although in the past, Linley felt good-will towards Orloff, the current Linley couldn’t help but feel a hint of anger towards him. In the past, when Augusta had deceived Linley and taken his Four Divine Beasts blood essences, the Chief Sovereign of Fate, Orloff, had been his accomplice. And now, Orloff was urging him to spare Augusta!

“My apologies. Today, he must definitely die!” Linley’s attitude became even more unyielding. Linley and Augusta were now less than a hundred kilometers apart.

“Linley, can it be that you insist on killing him right in front of me?” The Chief Sovereign of Fate, Orloff, finally grew angry. His words became somewhat fierce as well. “I wanted to be friends with you, but you…if you insist on doing this, then in the future, I will have no choice but to kill you! I imagine that if I want to kill you, there’s no one who can stop me!”

Linley’s heart sank. Orloff was going to act? But in the next instant, he made his decision and planned out his retreat.

“Linley, if you give up now, you and I will remain friends.” Orloff sent. “Are you suggesting that we previously were friends?” Linley sneered. “If we were friends, why would you help Augusta deceive me? He said he would return free will to my mother, but that was a pure lie. I refuse to believe that you, the exalted Chief Sovereign of Fate, wouldn’t know about the secrets of restoring free will to an Angel.”

Orloff let out a sigh. “Linley, so that’s what you are so angry about. Originally, I was asking a favor from Augusta, so I had no choice.”

“Linley!” Orloff’s voice suddenly grew sharp. This was because…Linley was now less than twenty meters away from Augusta. “Kill!” Linley showed no mercy at all; the Life Overgod Sword in his hands once more shot out. “Crackle…” The irresistibly sharp sword energy formed into a beam. In the face of that being, the fabric of reality in chaotic space was as weak as tissue paper. It was easily pierced through as the beam of sword energy landed on Augusta’s body.

The sword energy beam was simply too thick; the Lightsaber was unable to completely block it. The beam of energy passed through Augusta’s waist, actually bisecting Augusta in half as his waist was transformed into dust.

Augusta’s speed slowed, and Linley instantly arrived.

“Orloff, I have no other choice!” Augusta suddenly laughed loudly, and madness appeared in his eyes as he stared at Linley. “Linley, in countless years…no one has ever been able to force me to this state. I have no choice but to violate the pact between Orloff and myself. You…shall die now!” The deep, berserk voice echoed within Linley’s mind.

But Linley just laughed coldly in his heart. Augusta had tried this trick last time; to frighten him with a bluff. “What, you want to use the same tactic twice in a row?” Linley sent back. “I know exactly how strong you are now. Unless you truly have an innate divine ability or some other unique attacks, there is nothing you can do. Unfortunately, you do not.” As he spoke, Linley once again lifted up his Life Overgod Sword. The bisected Augusta was no longer able to dodge as easily as he had in the past.

Augusta’s face was just cold and emotionless…and then, he let out a savage howl as he raised his head. “Rumble…” Blurry, illusory images suddenly appeared.

The phantom of a Vermillion Bird appeared from Augusta’s head. His left side released the phantom of an Azure Dragon that was three meters long, while his right side released the phantom of the divine beast, White Tiger. Beneath his vanished waist lay the phantom of the divine beast, Black Tortoise.

Augusta stared coldly at Linley.

“Impossible!” Linley howled wildly in his heart. This technique, amazingly enough, was the supreme technique which the Chief Sovereign of Destruction, Wodred, had developed after researching the fused innate divine ability of the Four Divine Beasts – Spacetime Paradox!

“Wodred said that he only told the Chief Sovereign of Fate, Orloff, about his supreme technique, and that he had Orloff swear an Overgod oath that he would not teach it to anyone else! The Chief Sovereign of Destruction couldn’t possibly have taught it to Augusta. Then…” A light went off in Linley’s head.

Linley stared in astonishment at Augusta, who was currently executing ‘Spacetime Paradox’. “Can it be him?”

Right at this moment, the surrounding space in chaotic space was already beginning to twist, distort, and change, thanks to this ‘Spacetime Paradox’ technique…

  1. Thanks for the chapters…. No thanks for the cliffhanger.

    I’m dying to know what the descent of the laws Brings this time around… It’s gonna be EPIC!!!

    Quick need the next dose. XD

  2. Thanks Ren for extending the preview to the descent of natural laws! It’s awesome enough of a moment that it doesn’t even feel too cliffhanger-y 😀

  3. And that’s the difference between the Chief Sovereigns and someone who has lived for a mere? ten thousand years. Always ask for an Overgod’s oath before making your important deals.

  4. This why the 4db soul attack didn’t work on Augusta. He has two over god artifacts. So when linley kills them wont he have 3 artifacts, so will he give them to Beirut and Blue-fire? So many questions to be answered like how didn’t the Emissary not notice that they were Bula too? Since he said his people could. Could fusion overgod be actually possible, is he gaining insight to the laws of fate or destruction, or is existence making a special spark just for him.

    1. It was stated many times already you cant become a overgod so no no fusion overgod
      Overgods are not people or kreatures they are the edicts itself that take form 🙂

      1. I’m just saying shit just got real and no one but ren knows how everything going to go down now. Now that I think about it Linley has just been Vegeta-ing everyone.

        1. doesn’t matter if “shit got real” A doesn’t turn into B because C got knocked up by D.

          overgods are NOT people and they are embodiments of the edicts not natural laws, there is no stage higher than sovereign nor paragon. soul mutates still fall into these categories, they just can collate all their power together and thus a soul mutate sovereign who has completely merged multiple laws would be ranks above other sovereigns, hence why linley has chief sov level power despite only having lesser sovereign sparks.

          sure it would have been insane if he did that with chief sov sparks for the 4 elements, the edict chiefs wouldn’t stand a chance against him after the 2nd spark fused.

          as for the overgod artifacts, keep them obviously. even if his soul is insanely powerful that is a rank up from his sov soul protecting artifact and his clones need better weapons too. all he needs then is a overgod defense artifact and he is complete.

          the only way linley could be scarier is if he did something freakish like having become a 4-way soul mutate of all 4 edicts, got sovs spark of the same rank for each, and then had all 3 overgod pieces for each clone and was a paragon. atleast then all the artifacts could line up with his power and be even better.

          note: something that will never happen 😛

          1. Doesn’t change the fact that Vegeta would be proud of Linley’s Vegeta-ing ways. He would allow Linley to join the Renegade For Life Club.

  5. hmmm… so this is my prediction..
    Agusta and Orloff are one and the same. the Bula Race. So after Agusta unleashes the Spacetime Paradox on Linley, but since Linley gained the sudden insight, he will be protected from it because of the decending of the natural laws from fusing the four laws. orlof uses this time to reach agusta and gets ready to face linley.

    but linley is now 10 times more powerful than before so it isnt easy for orloff to kill him off anymore. but seeing that orloff still over powered him linley decides to make a dash for it. only he doesnt run away, he is actually running towards that fire sovereign under orloff. with his superior speed even if the fire sovereign tried to make a break for it, he was merely a lesser sovereign so Linley almost instantly catches up with him. now with a fire sovereign spark in his hand, and orloff on his a** Linley quickly fuses with it. Seeing this startled orloff and all the rest. they come to a standstill. Threats are exchanged and then Linley makes known to others that he is a never before heard of 4 way soul mutate and his powers had multiplied by the thousands or ten thousands.. probably even more. Then orloff and linley starts their death match and the rest of the sovereign could only watch slacked jawed. then linley kills both orloff and his clone agusta and becomes the true peak of the universe only second in power to the overgods themselves.

    Plus there might be some things like he absorbs the blood essence of the other 3 Devine beasts and then gains the power of the Spacetime Paradox too.. The battle only became hard because Orloff had an overgod weapon as well as a soul protecting overgod artifact.

      1. true.. but then he was on orloff’s side and orloff was trying to kill him and he’s the only fire lesser sovereign mentioned by the author. and after that happens who would dare to act against Linley. so yeah thats what i think will happen.. hehe

      2. actually, he already offended Linley during the search for that last emissary. it is a little bit of a stretch to use that as an out. I figure that this fire sovereign will do something else stupid to offend Linley while expecting Orloff to protect him.

    1. lol wat if beruit tells bluefire to absorb the earth sovereign spark that linley aquired b4 from cheif sovereign of lightning (since bluefire has an earth clone i think) and takes bluefire’s fire spark and throws it to linley?

    2. I agree, and was thinking the same, of most things, except that Orloff can’t possible be from the Bula Race. It’s more likely that he copied the technique somehow, otherwise Agusta couldn’t reproduce sexually.

      Unless the “evil” clone can reproduce and we weren’t told.

    1. i dont think thats the case. he just fused 4 laws of 4 different elements that was why the universe granted him more power. its probably like how it descended when an individual learned 1 law for demigod and so on and so forth till high god.. he will probably receive more updates when he fuses more laws of the 4 elements together. maybe become a supreme paragon of the 4 laws.. later on.. haha..

      But right now he’s still far from being an actual paragon in any of the laws

      1. We were told that fussing 4 laws together was like fusing 7 laws of an element with 6 laws. He is now a paragon level expert on the elemental laws, just that not in anyone in particular.

  6. Linley shines in the bleakest moments. Classic Linley gaining insight during battle.
    Will he come up with a ‘spacetime paradox’, become a greater entity or something else???

  7. Omg! I’m panting like those shocked people in wuxia/xianxia novels!
    Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤

  8. Huh. So Augusta is Orloff and Orloff is Augusta. So they must be those Buta or w/e since Augusta is a d*ck bag while Orloff is apparently nice and super into training.

  9. In the past, when Augusta had deceived Linley and taken his Four Divine Beasts blood essences, the Chief Sovereign of Fate, Orloff, had been his accomplish.
