Wu Yu continued devouring eternal demon emperor corpses for another 70,000 years.
A total of 100,000 years. From fifth tier to eighth tier eternal demon emperor, he converted all of it to part of his own cultivation.
Finally, after countless incantations of the Tightening Cantrip, he finally built his Eternal Wheel properly!
He could feel the immortal energy within him swirling around a huge disc, whose rotation continued to make his apotheosis realm expand.
The legacy of so many eternal demon emperor ancestors - they all helped to expand Wu Yu's Devouring Apotheosis Realm. The merging of all these demon immortal bloodlines made his Devouring Apotheosis Realm grow to half the size of Demon Immortal Realm!
This was many, many times stronger than before he had created his Eternal Wheel.
The immortals in the heaven within could now cultivate to higher levels with a more stable immortal essence qi environment.
Most importantly, there were many demons which had appeared in his Devouring Apotheosis Realm, as though the demon immortals that he had devoured had been reborn within his Devouring Apotheosis Realm.
There was a Nine-Headed Flaming Lion, just like the Nine Inferno Emperor, an eternal demon emperor.
There was also a stone pillar turned demon, which reminded Wu Yu of Weathered Stone Emperor.
There was another picture that turned demon, who was a promising cultivator within Devouring Apotheosis Realm. He was the double of Scenic Grand Emperor who was a painting turned demon.
Although these demons were not the same esteemed eternal demon emperors of the past, but at least their bloodlines seemed to live on within him.
This was something that Wu Yu had not expected.
"The legacies of the Demon Immortal Realm are actually being given new life within you. So many precious bloodlines. It's incredible."
Even Guanyin Pusa marveled at this. She had never seen such a case before, of devoured powers manifesting themselves within the apotheosis realm.
"This means that all the Demon Immortal Realm ancestors can rest in peace now." Wu Yu said, gratified.
The Demon Immortal Realm was thoroughly destroyed.
Even if the time came when he could take revenge for them, it would not bring them back to life.
However, their bloodlines had been given new life within him, and it was comforting to Wu Yu that their legacies lived on in some form.
Still, Wu Yu was most concerned about his own strength.
By the time he had finished devouring all the tens of thousands of eternal demon emperors in the Eternal Emperor Tomb, he had finally properly completed his eighth tier Eternal Immortality Realm. He had a proper Eternal Wheel now.
From the flow of apotheosis immortal energy within Devouring Apotheosis Realm, Wu Yu knew that he had again grown greatly in strength.
He felt about as strong as Guanyin Pusa now. If they fought together, their combined strength was not to be underestimated.
Besides the Jade Emperor himself, they had nothing to fear.
Of course, all of the immortal emperors now were puppets, and were against him.
If Wu Yu appeared, they would definitely gang up on him.
More importantly, Wu Yu did not want to tangle with them. It was meaningless to fight puppets whose will and memories were not their own.
There was not a single bit of benefit to killing them. Perhaps one day there would be a way to lift the control off them, allowing them to return back to normal like Guanyin Pusa......
Of course, this was very difficult, and Guanyin Pusa had been lucky as well. They currently had no good way to save the Jade Emperor and the others.
As for Patriarch Bodhi, he had been inadvertently missed by the Unworldly Abomination on his gorging rampage.
"Samantabhadra the Universal Worthy and Manjusri the Gentle Glory probably also managed to escape that way. They fled to Sumeru World to hide, but......."
Wu Yu again felt guilty.
Unfettered by the Unworldly Abomination, the two were also part of the Four Great Bodhisattvas, and would definitely have been very strong.
Xuanzang had taken 30 years to kill them in Sumeru World, a testament to how strong they had been. If only they were alive, they would definitely be of great help to Wu Yu.
Wu Yu still felt bad. His misjudgment had opened Sumeru World to Xuanzang and gotten the two of them killed. More, their buddha worlds had then been used to open the Sumeru Passage which had inflicted great harm to the two immortal domains.
"Xuanzang's been pretty quiet in this time. I wonder what he's up to now."
Wu Yu said.
Now that Wu Yu was at the eighth tier, he still needed to reinforce some aspects of his cultivation. Besides, there were no more eternal demon emperor corpses for him to devour. He would not be able to hunt down the Unworldly Abomination if he continued cowering in Eternal Emperor Tomb.
Therefore, Wu Yu and Guanyin Pusa decided to go to Heavenly Buddha's Domain to take a look.
Of course, the first priority was to stay alive.
There was nothing to see at Heavenly Domain. 100,000 years after the great battle against the immortal buddhas, the Jade Emperor and the others must be recuperating.
But Wu Yu was worried about the situation over at Heavenly Buddha's Domain. After all, Xuanzang did not seem like the kind to give up so easily. Perhaps Heavenly Buddha's Domain had changed much in the last 100,000 years.
Luo Pin could not bear that Wu Yu was leaving again.
She had been by his side all this time, watching him writhe under the Tightening Cantrip, seeing him grow stronger day by day as he devoured corpses. All for the sake of that final battle against the Unworldly Abomination.
There were many times when Luo Pin wished that Wu Yu had not laid such a heavy burden on himself. She would have been happy for them to live out their lives in quiet peace.
But she knew that there was no quiet peace to be had if the Unworldly Abomination was not dealt with properly. Both immortal domains might well be destroyed.
Therefore, the Unworldly Abomination had to be ended.
And for that, the only hope was Wu Yu. After all, he had fused with the Heaven Devouring Titanic Beast, and Guanyin Pusa suspected that they had come from the same stock.
"Don't worry. I'll definitely be back."
Wu Yu clasped her hands tightly. He too was emotional. She had been by his side all these years.
She was still as enchanting as the first day he had met her in the Jambu Realm. Wu Yu almost could not bear to leave her.
But he had to, in order for their reunion to be more joyful and assured. He understood this.
After a tender hug, Wu Yu turned to leave Eternal Emperor Tomb with Guanyin Pusa, heading for Heavenly Buddha's Domain.
Her beautiful eyes rested on his back, drawing comfort for as long as she could until he disappeared into the golden vortex.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
