Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1869
I Was A God King Once
The Spirit Monarch’s body transformed into a ray of green radiance and he returned to his human appearance once again. Only this time, his entire body was covered in dark green scales and his aura was obviously much stronger than before.He looked at Gu Yuena with a longing gaze. He stuck out his tongue and licked his lips once. “Very well, very well. Although I can’t breach your plane, I can lock down this space for a short period of time by relying on my rank-3 Divine Origin spiritual power. On the other hand, all your abilities are dependent upon the elements found in this plane. There are no more elements for you now. It means your death is upon u too. No one is coming to save you because no one can possibly find you in this space, unless they have spiritual power beyond mine.”
“Thus, your efforts to resist are futile. Soon, I’m going to turn you into a part of my body. You have Divine Origin spiritual power too. Perhaps devouring you will stabilize my rank-3 Divine Origin so that I won’t need to burn my life force to support it. You will be my first big catch upon coming to this world. To commemorate you, I might take on your appearance after devouring you. Hmm, you are rather good looking. You’re really pretty. This is the beauty that only belongs to mankind. My fellow clansmen might not know how to appreciate it, but I do.”
The Spirit Monarch looked at Gu Yuena with the eyes of a cat trying to capture a mouse. It was as if he was looking at a scrumptious feast spread out before him. He was trying to find the best spot for him to start devouring it in order to make the most of the meal.
Gu Yuena looked at him with a rather ghastly gaze.
“What else? Go on.” She beckoned for him to continue.
The Spirit Monarch was stunned for a moment. He was trying to provoke Gu Yuena with his words to disrupt her desire to fight. Although Gu Yuena was unable to mobilize any elements there, she still had her Divine Origin spiritual cultivation base, and he did not want her to go all out. If she detonated her sea of spirit, she could unleash her Divine Origin spiritual power. Not only would he gain nothing from that, but perhaps he would also be injured in the process. As a result, he chose to first kill her spirit.
“You’ve seen it too. You’ve seen how good I am to my clansmen. When I amplify myself, I amplify them too. All the clansmen with me will be gaining the most benefit. Moreover, I’m different from the rest of the abyssal creatures. I treasure the lives of my clansmen, so I will never send them to their deaths. Thus, I gave you a choice to yield to me and be my servant. Then, I will not only allow you to live, but I’ll also grant you a position of power. Additionally, if you choose to follow me, perhaps you will be able to find the path to rank-3 Divine Origin. You will only need to offer your soul to me and I will help you to do everything else. I will even permit you to keep your mind as it is. This is your last chance.”
Gu Yuena chuckled upon hearing his offer. “Really? My last chance? My last chance? I don’t think so. You would benefit far more by devouring me than by letting me be your servant. You will teach a higher form after consuming my sea of spirit and life force. There’s something else that I must tell you. If you were really capable of devouring me, then this plane’s power wouldn’t hold you back any longer. You would become a real God and possess more God power than the Demon Empress. I think it would even be possible for you to create your own Divine Realm. Thus, how can you possibly let me go under such circumstances? You’re only worried that I will spare no effort in fighting against you and leave you empty-handed.”
The Spirit Monarch was stunned for a moment, and his eyes turned icy cold. “Being too smart is never a good thing. It seems I’ve been overthinking this. That’s true too. How can a person whose spiritual cultivation base reached Divine Origin-rank be a fool? If that’s the case, I shall fulfill your wish. Even if you choose to detonate yourself, your divine consciousness won’t be able to leave this confined space of mine. I will still devour you. Maybe just slightly less than what I might have done. However, you were saying that I can become a God just by devouring your body? I don’t believe that. What abilities do you possess that you could make such a claim? You don’t have God power. You’re just an ordinary person and devouring you will only elevate some of my life force.”
Gu Yuena heaved a sigh. “That is why I said that I must thank you. Since when did I say that I’m an ordinary person? Did you ever consider that maybe I have to control myself and suppress my power to stop others from noticing me? However, there’s no need for me to contain it anymore in your perfect locked world. Even if I have yet to recover one percent of my abilities in my peak form, how dare a tiny lizard like you dream of devouring me?”
Upon hearing her words, Spirit Monarch suddenly had an ominous feeling in his heart. He watched as Gu Yuena’s body began to glow.
It was a piercing silver color. The sheen of different elements appeared on her silver battle armor. A layer of circular scales began to cover the surface of her armor as if the armor was morphing into something else. Gu Yuena stretched her body for a moment. She did not appear to have grown in size, but she exuded a feeling of a giant dragon rising from its slumber.
A crystal emerged on Gu Yuena’s forehead. Nine colors circulated on its surface and it emitted a gentle glow. The Spirit Monarch felt as his locked space began to shudder from the moment the crystal appeared. It felt as if the space was about to collapse at any moment.
He could not keep the fear from his face. He was shocked as he watched this woman grow in power. Furthermore, she was undergoing incredible changes that would overturn this world.
“Who…who are you really?” asked the Spirit Monarch in awe.
Gu Yuena looked at him calmly. “You don’t deserve to know my true identity. However, to commemorate this day that I am finally able to display some of my abilities after so many years, I will tell you.”
“There were some mighty entities living in the Divine Realm once upon a time. I believe you’ve heard about it before, just like how you heard about rank-3 Divine Origin. A rank-3 Divine Origin is only slightly higher than a low-level God Officer in the Divine Realm. On the other hand, my spiritual rank when I was still in Divine Realm was God King!”
At this point, the spiritual fluctuation of Gu Yuena’s body suddenly burst forth like a volcano. The locked space around them changed from black to silver. At least, it looked silver from the inside.
At that moment, the Spirit Monarch was astonished to find that he had lost control of the confined space they were in. It had shifted to Gu Yuena’s hands.
Gu Yuena looked at him with a smile. “That’s right. My power can’t reach God rank, because I don’t want to break through the limitations of the plane for now. Nevertheless, if I wanted to do so, there would be nothing that could actually stop me. The lord of this plane is less than rank-2 Godhood. I may be just a fraction of what I was in the past, but I was the only God King that represented the divine beasts. At the very least, I’m still a rank-1 God!”
“But…but didn’t you say that you only possess one percent of your power at most?” Spirit Monarch’s voice had already begun to tremble because he could genuinely sense that the opponent’s spiritual power was exerting a terrifying stress over his.”
Gu Yuena made a pondering poise then she cracked into a joyous smile. “That’s right, only one percent. Then, how much is one percent of a rank-1 God’s spiritual power? Let me think. Hmmm, it’s about the level of a rank-2 Godhood, right? If not for him, perhaps I would have returned to Godhood-rank earlier. But if I were to do so, I wouldn’t be able to remain in this world anymore.”
