Worlds' Apocalypse Online - Chapter 1551
The blood-colored wind blew in their direction.
Large shadows rapidly charged towards them from afar.
They were monsters manifested from nothing but blood, each of which carried the unique characteristics of various races, which made them look like chimeras or mutated beasts.
——all of them were subordinates arbitrarily created by the giant eyeball.
They collected various lifeforms for the giant eyeball and scoured the Pantheon ruins in search of the frozen corpse.
“We need to hurry up and leave!” the blind nun urged them.
Fei Yue continuously tapped the void of space and loudly said: “Everyone should go first, there is so much scattered power of Fate right now that it’s a waste to not absorb some of it!”
Countless strands of black thread flew out of her hand and began to form a net above the dark riverbed.
Some sort of invisible force was gradually gathering within the net to give off a low vibrating noise.
“Such vast power! My strength will greatly improve now!” Fei Yue exclaimed in joy.
Gu Qing Shan glanced at the blood monsters, then back at Fei Yue.
——we’d definitely clash against those monsters if we don’t leave right now.
But the power of Fate that’s currently scattering in the void of space is the power that the Deity of Fate Lachesis had accumulated for countless years.
It’s a wonder how much stronger Fei Yue would be able to grow after absorbing all of this power.
Come to think of it——
If Lachesis was confident enough to show up at this exact moment in time, she had most likely believed that she would be able to defeat Reneedol by showing up now.
In that case, this power definitely cannot go to waste!
Gu Qing Shan drew his sword and asked: “Fei Yue, how long do you need?”
“Three minutes! Give me just three minutes!”
Fei Yue’s hands turned into blurred images as she continued to tap the void of space and make the strands of thread that made up the net constantly vibrate.
Gu Qing Shan sighed.
“Alright, let’s prepare for combat, leave the retreat to me” he told everyone.
Seeing how confident he was about this, everyone felt assured as well.
If there are no longer any concerns regarding retreat, we can go wild and buy time for Fei Yue!
The Ominous Demon Tower Master took off his coat to reveal a teddy bear tattoo on top of his chest and shouted: 「 I’ll go first 」
He waved his muscular arms from afar.
A resounding noise rang out in the distance.
A few hundred meters away, a claw exuding ferocious aura appeared out of nowhere and crushed the blood monsters to dust.
Xiao Die hurriedly said: “This place is too narrow, control your strength, otherwise you’ll draw that guy’s attention!”
The Ominous Demon Tower Master grunted, then shook his body a bit before pulling his presence back.
Gu Qing Shan was surprised: “Why can’t we act at full strength?”
「 ——-If we show ourselves to be too powerful, that would draw the giant eyeball’s attention to send even more monsters towards us 」the Ominous Demon Tower Master explained.
The blind nun followed up: “If someone or some people remain unbeatable despite being surrounded by monsters, the giant eyeball might truly be interested in them”
Gu Qing Shan nodded.
——-in that case, the giant eyeball would personally arrive.
Most likely, many of them had actually died like this.
Xiao Die sighed: “We’ve been relying on big sister blind nun’s premonitions in order to ensure that everyone isn’t wiped out”
Gu Qing Shan pondered: “In that case, I suggest that everyone doesn’t act at all, otherwise, it would be too dangerous”
A sword appeared from the void of space and pointed at the underground river following his gaze.
Gu Qing Shan focused his thoughts and unleashed a sword seal.
The Chao Yin sword flew a few meters forward and turned into a beautiful arc in mid-air.
A few hundred meters away——
Obstacles began to appear below the blood monsters’ feet.
All the obstacles were created from water, but they were as hard as a rock and were incredibly sturdy.
At the same time, these obstacles weren’t there to stop their advance but to trip them up.
The monsters lost their balance and began to fall one after another.
The Chao Yin sword continued to swing.
Pillars of water rose one after another from the riverbed to knock the fallen monsters into the air.
Gu Qing Shan reached out with both hands.
The Chao Yin sword flew back into his hand.
A large pillar of water abruptly manifested from the sidewall in front of the monsters, it looked almost like a large bat.
Gu Qing Shan lowered his body a bit and slowly pulled his sword back.
The large pillar of water swiftly followed the movement of his sword.
Gu Qing Shan shouted out loud and swung his sword forward while turning his body.
The large pillar of water swung forward as well to hit the blood monsters in the air.
The monsters were instantly sent flying in a straight line towards the far end of the underground river.
“That should do the trick…”
Gu Qing Shan lowered his sword and sighed in relief.
「 They didn’t seem to be hurt at all, only sent away 」the Ominous Demon Tower Master cupped his hand above his eyes and looked into the distance.
“Hm, we’re only trying to buy time, so I didn’t want to take any risks” Gu Qing Shan replied.
——–there was truly no need to fight at all; because every blood monster that was killed would cause everyone to feel anxious, wondering if the giant eyeball would happen to feel interested and come to check the situation.
For the sake of buying time, this could be considered the best solution.
“When did you learn baseball?” Xiao Die crossed her arms and asked.
“I’ve always liked all types of ball games—– after the Apocalypses are over, I’ll probably go play ball every once in a while” Gu Qing Shan shrugged.
While they talked, the black threads around them had returned and entered Fei Yue’s hand.
She opened her eyes and gave Gu Qing Shan a grateful look.
“A lot of it had scattered, but I’ve managed to retain quite a large portion of the power. Right now, I just need a place to sit down and slowly convert it into my own power” she told him.
“Then let’s go—– touch any part of my body with your hands, I’ll take you to a secret room” Gu Qing Shan told them.
「 Secret room? 」the Ominous Demon Tower Master felt interested and put his hand on Gu Qing Shan’s shoulder.
“Is it safe?” Xiao Die asked.
“At the moment, it’s the safest place without a doubt” Gu Qing Shan replied.
Xiao Die then approached and placed her hand on his back.
The blind nun then put her hand on Gu Qing Shan’s other shoulder.
Boss raised his dog tail and put it around Gu Qing Shan’s leg.
Fei Yue looked a bit and said: “There’s no place for me at all”
Gu Qing Shan replied: “There’s still a lot of places on my body, just touch any location at all, you only need to stay in physical contact with me”
“No, I’m personally afraid of teleportation” Fei Yue firmly told him.
“Then what now?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“I need to at least feel safe about it”
After saying so, Fei Yue put both hands on his chest and leaned in.
Everyone else: “…”
“Oi, so you’ve already decided?” Xiao Die silently sent her voice.
“Yup, I’ve realized that you’re right, a man like this is the cream of the crop, I can’t let this chance pass” Fei Yue replied.
Xiao Die’s lips curved into a smirk.
Fei Yue maintained a solemn expression and said: “Gu Qing Shan, let’s hurry up. That monster could arrive at any moment, it isn’t safe here!”
A mass of white fog manifested from the void of space to envelop Gu Qing Shan and slowly everyone around him as well.
Instantly, they all disappeared inside the white fog.
The secret room.
“Where is this?” Xiao Die asked.
“The secret room of the Protection Deity, it contains the strongest defenses, as well as a unique door——- there is no place inside the Pantheon ruins that’s safer than this one” Gu Qing Shan explained.
He moved the ring on his finger to release a large number of gems that covered everyone’s feet, which continued to rise until the gems reached their knees.
“The gems are here to maintain the defenses” Gu Qing Shan explained.
The blind nun walked around the secret room a bit, then delightfully said: “Hm… I can feel it, this place is truly very safe”
Fei Yue said nothing and immediately sat down in a corner, slowly closing her eyes to convert the power of Fate into her own.
“Everyone rest up a bit, the situation is very urgent right now, so I need to head to the Wraith realm for a bit” Gu Qing Shan said.
He took out a bunch of canned energy drinks and handed them to everyone.
“What are you thinking of doing?” Xiao Die took a sip and asked.
“Reneedol had already been pushed into a corner, I’m afraid that she might go berserk and destroy certain things—– so I need to hurry and retrieve something first” Gu Qing Shan replied.
“So you’re going to steal something?” Xiao Die asked.
“No, that thing didn’t belong to her in the first place, so I’m merely taking it back” Gu Qing Shan corrected her.
——-the Tomb of Myriad Beasts’ issue had only been postponed, the real solution to the problem is still the sword.
So I need to retrieve the Delimitation Divine Sword!
Now that Reneedol is busy trying to avoid destruction, there’s a possibility that she doesn’t pay much attention to this sword, so I might be able to take it away.
Not to mention, since the ultimate Apocalypse is coming, this would be the final chance for me to retrieve the Delimitation Divine Sword.
——Lin is also there, so I need to take this chance to save her.
“I’ll come with you” Boss said.
“Alright, I’ll feel a bit more assured with you helping me” Gu Qing Shan replied.
The black dog turned into a mass of black flames and entered Gu Qing Shan’s body.
“How about I come with you as well——– you take care of the stealing and leave the fighting to me” Xiao Die suggested.
“No” the blind nun stopped her.
“Only the two of them would have a chance of returning, there will be issues if you go as well——- I can already foresee a bit of trouble”
Xiao Die could only give up.
Gu Qing Shan nodded to everyone and entered the white fog, once again disappearing.
