The abyssal Holy Lord was the ruler of the entire abyssal plane, yet it was being completely dominated!
"Th, this is impossible! This is godly power! How could you possibly possess this power?"
The Holy Lord's voice was filled with shock and rage. Aside from godly power, what else could dominate his power as the ruler of an entire plane?
"Hmph!" the woman harrumphed coldly, and the rainbow dragon spear suddenly faltered momentarily in mid-air.
"Dragon God Transformation! Second transformation, Dragon God Possession!"
An unprecedented powerful aura abruptly erupted from her body, and this was an extremely primordial and ancient aura. In that instant, almost all of the powerful beings on the entire Douluo Star who were at or above the Titled Douluo level looked up into the sky in unison.
The powerful beings on all three continents had sensed what was unfolding here.
On a set of plains, an untamed figure was charging forward at a rapid speed when he suddenly seemed to have sensed something and abruptly came to a halt. An extremely stunned expression appeared on his rugged features, and he abruptly fell to one knee. His aura had been extremely violent and powerful just a moment ago, yet all of a sudden, he was acting like a timid little bunny.
In a faraway forest, several figures appeared high up in the air almost at the exact same time, and all of them wore incredulous looks on their faces.
A trail of golden hair suddenly rose up naturally on the head of a black-haired middle-aged man, and he had an extremely excited look in his eyes. "She's done it! Our Lord has succeeded! Has, has she really awakened? This is..."
At the Spirit Pagoda headquarters.
The chairman of the Spirit Pagoda rushed over to the window like lightning before casting his gaze into the distance. As a Limit Douluo, he could sense what was happening with an extremely high level of clarity.
How could this be? Power of this level shouldn't be able to appear in this world! Unless... Could it be that someone had ascended to become a god? But hadn't the divine realm disappeared a long time ago? Could it be that the divine realm had returned?
A pillar of rainbow light instantly rose up into the heavens from within the abyssal passageway, and the entire Blood God Array was radiating scorching radiance. The nine Blood Gods were all affected by this, and their bodies were sent flying backward in unison. However, as they were basked in the rainbow light, they could sense that their bodies were being cleansed by natural energies.
Even all of the Blood God Legion soldiers present were benefitting from the rich natural energies within the abyssal passageway, and everyone could clearly sense their powers being enhanced by this mass cleansing.
Such a vastly fortunate event was completely unheard of, yet it was unfolding right before their eyes!
This battle had truly been an emotional rollercoaster; whenever they were about to be plunged into despair, they were always somehow able to turn the tables.
"I'll be back! You won't be able to draw upon the power of your plane every time!" The fury had faded from the rumbling voice, and it was replaced by a very determined tone.
The seven fingers on the massive hand curled inward before abruptly unfurling to knock back the rainbow figure. In the next instant, the hand grabbed onto the Black Sovereign and the other abyssal emperors before retreating back into the depths of the abyssal passageway in a flash.
Rainbow light almost instantly swept forth, and the seal that had been broken before was instantly restored. All of the complex symbols reappeared, and everything returned to the way that it was before in virtually the blink of an eye!
Where am I?
Tang Wulin was inspecting his surroundings with a blank look on his face. This was a world that was filled with nine-colored light, and everything was so illusory and surreal.
In the instant prior to this, he had clearly sensed that his life had been about to draw to a conclusion and was on the verge of being snuffed out, as if his entire being were about to be destroyed.
However, in the next instant, he was suddenly greeted by the aura and the voice that he was most familiar with.
As soon as he made this recollection, an extremely peculiar look appeared on his face.
It was her! But...
Tang Wulin's heart was filled with countless complex emotions as he hovered aimlessly on the spot.
His dual championship crown, the feeling of becoming the ruler of heaven and earth, and the abyssal plane had all faded from his mind. In that instant, there was only the figure of a single woman in his heart.
"Who are you?" Tang Wulin murmured to himself.
"Why? Why are you doing this?" a furious female voice interrogated.
This was also a nine-colored space, but Tang Wulin wasn't situated within this space. Instead, there were two figures that were separated by about 10 meters, and one of them was appraising the other with a furious expression.
If Tang Wulin were present, he would definitely be stunned to see these two people.
"Why, Gu Yue? Tell me why! Why did you do that? You're going to die! How can you forcibly ignite your spiritual flame to activate your Dragon God godseat? There was no need for you to do that! You could’ve just taken a conservative approach to wear down that abyssal Holy Lord; the planar power of the Douluo plane was only going to constantly whittle away at its power."
Gu Yue looked on at the furious Na'er, but there was a smile of release and relief on her face. "Do you still not understand, you silly girl? I was the one who had lost from the very beginning. However, I didn't lose to you. Instead, I lost to him. On one side is our brethren, who are on the verge of extinction, while on the other side is the man that I love. Even I can't even tell whether I'm a human or the Silver Dragon King. You're a part of me, so you should be able to empathize with the torment I've been experiencing. I wanted to run away from reality, and I even stooped as low as to feign memory loss and call him father just so I could be with him for a while longer, just so I could see him become a little more powerful.
"However, I know that if things are to continue like this, we'll stand against one another as enemies someday. Our ideologies are completely different; my goal is to destroy the entire human race! But now, there's no way that I can bear to hurt him. Di Tian and the others have already caught on to this, and I've also sensed the shifts in their emotions when they mention him now. It won't be long before they try to kill him, yet we're still nowhere near our peak. I face an impossible choice; I can't betray my brethren as it is my duty to bring resurgence to the soul beasts, yet I also can't bring myself to kill the man I love. If I had it in me to do so, I would've killed him long ago.
"Hence, I can only be a coward and completely run away. I activated the power of the Dragon God's godseat to forcibly seal the abyssal passageway in its entirety, so it'll take at least several thousands of years for the abyssal Holy Lord to break into this plane again. My soul has already been ignited, and this is irreversible. I will be devoured by my godseat, but there is more than one soul in my body; you will live on in my stead, and without my presence, you'll be able to do what you've always wanted to do. You've never experienced the world of soul beasts, so you can be with him without any emotional burdens.
"With his current powers and our powers, we'll be able to protect ourselves from Di Tian and the others, so just allow me to be a deserter. I wish you two all the happiness in the world, and I hope you can love him in my stead."
Gu Yue's voice was becoming more and more relaxed, and her body was also becoming more and more transparent.
"Are you really willing to let him go?" Na'er suddenly asked in a cold voice.
Gu Yue's body shuddered slightly, and she suddenly became slightly more substantial again.
A wry smile appeared on her face. "So what if I'm unwilling? We're simply not meant to be."
Na'er took a deep breath, and said, "Thank you for your generosity, but it's not appreciated. He loves you, not me, so I'm not going to let you die."
The two figures instantly overlapped, and the nine-colored light faded while everything else suddenly fell silent.
After an indeterminate period of time, Tang Wulin finally awakened from his slumber.
His final memory before falling unconscious was of that surreal and abstract nine-colored world, and after that, everything fell into darkness.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
