Chapter 263.2 - Fierce and Brave
Carbon and water were the building blocks of humans and therefore the food that maintained the existence of life were also made of the same substances. If runic patterns possessed life, what do they use for sustenance?
The enemy continued to increase in number. Although Mu Zi's Ham Sausage was extremely powerful, there was still only one of it. Although it could continue fighting, it would have to resort to self preservation if it was encircled. A combat pet that was unable to protect its owner was useless regardless of how powerful it was.
Faced with an unprecedented amount of enemies, Wang Zhong felt absolute despair weigh heavily in his heart and this was no exaggeration. He could clearly see countless hands continue to burst from the walls without stopping. It was just like a dimensional door where strange monsters constantly streamed out.
Slam. Mu Zi and Wang Zhong continued to obliterate the freakish monsters that rushed out from the walls.
"Mu Zi, keep Ham Sausage back."
At this moment, Aioros' deep voice rang out. Wang Zhong turned his head and noticed that the golden Soul Power wasmore frightening than the one that had previously shrouded over Aioros' body in the Door of Life. Gleaming in golden brilliance, he appeared just like the divine child of the Sun!
It was hard for Wang Zhong to estimate the level of Soul Power as it could be considered as the highest in the eyes of the Federation. The power radiating from Aioros made him feel as though his body was frozen solid.
Cracks of thunder rang out.
Wang Zhong felt as though he would be shattered into pieces in the next second!
Aioros had already sped forward, appearing like a golden, fiery, lightning fast serpent. Before him, the half soul, half physical demons were easily sliced apart like weeds. Perhaps they had an even more miserable end awaiting them like being mowed by a lawn mower. Unknowingly, Aiolos had already made a beeline straight forwards, appearing like a golden fiery serpent like bolt of lightning. Before the fiery serpent, those half soul half physical beasts and those freakish beasts jumping of the walls were sliced apart like weeds. Perhaps, they had an even more miserable ending , just like the leftovers of the weeds wherever a lawn mower had been through.
No! This was exactly just that!
The dimensional life forms had already crowded the passageway although their advances would only mean certain death. Aioros was just like a golden tank, dauntlessly charging forward without a sign of slowing down.
Faced against Aioros' golden lightning, there was only the outcome of being turned into ash!
If… if the Tianjing squadron could have such a powerful soldier…
Immediately, Wang zhong dispelled this thought of his. Aioros was just like an incarnation of the brave and fierce.
"The law of the jungle where the strong prey on the weak!" said Mu Zi.
"This is the principle of Aioros' Soul Power which he named the Law of the Jungle. No matter how many times I've seen it, I still get shivers running up my spine," said Mu Zi, his face brimming with envy. Although he had a considerable number of hidden aces up his sleeve, all of them relied on his Soul Weapon. On the contrary, Aioros' pure might was all due to his personal strength.
"Let's go. We just need to fling away those monsters at the back and it'll do. Ham Sausage!" Turning his head, Mu Zi barked an order. Ham Sausage immediately turned and shot out blazing flames to the back, sending dozens of freakish beasts flying away. Carrying Mu Zi and Wang Zhong, it dashed forward towards Aioros.
At this moment, Wang Zhong assumed they would meet Aioros shortly.
This was a mistake, however, as along the way there was nothing other than jet black darkness. Even the monsters had all disappeared into nihility.
This was similar to the Soul Domination ability executed by high level soldiers of the Federation, said to be able to destroy the heavens and decimate earth with a single attack.
Wang Zhong had never seen the attacks of a peak Heroic or Heavenly Soul soldier, however, they would at best be similar to Aioros' blast.
The Soul Domination ability was a qualitative change that occurs to one's Soul Power when it reaches a certain level. After seeing its effect, Wang Zhong was hopeful for the future.
Even at full speed, the Twin Headed Hellhound ran a good five minutes before they saw Aioros who had come to a stop. The only reason why Aioros had done so was not because he had lost momentum or ran out of power, he had simply reached the end of the pathway and stopped by himself!
Before them lay yet another main hall which began to light up as the trio walked in. Unlike the previous room which created mummy soldiers, this hall appeared much more grandiose and spectacular. In the sourceless light, the black floor made of unknown materials was radiating with a flowing luster, while mysterious runic patterns exuded unknown energies.
Wang Zhong felt as though he had walked into a treasure vault, with unknown runic patterns displayed all around. If it was not for the extreme danger in here which meant he could not stay long, he truly wished to spend time to properly research and analyse the runes.
The entire giant hall appeared just like a temple from the old civilization era, yet it lacked the presence of any god.
Taking a deep breath, Aioros gathered the golden coloured Soul Power around his body. He transformed it into a halo which disappeared behind his head before he said, "Mu Zi."
At this, both Aioros and Wang Zhong heard Mu Zi reply, "Leave the next part to me."
As his voice rang out, Mu Zi's aura became incomparably dignified as a thin layer of black light enveloped his body. Shock filled Wang Zhong as he witnessed the spectacle before him. Mu Zi had not made a single movement and yet, his shadow had started to wave and shake about as though it had come alive.
In front of Mu Zi, a runic patterned started to form and Soul Power brimming with energy radiated out in all directions. Wang Zhong watched with great interest. Turns out runic patterns can be used like that!
It was said that Tutankhamun Empire was the weakest of the three great empires, however, it was also the most mysterious as they were able to accomplish many inconceivable acts with their Soul Power.
Bang. As Mu Zi shouted, the entire great hall suddenly became transparent, before shattering apart as though it was made of glass. Light akin to daylight illuminated their surroundings and transformed everything into nihility. A thick white fog started to envelop them with muffled sounds of thunder ringing out within the mist.
A wall without a visible end appeared before the trio, obstructing their path. They were unable to estimate how high nor how wide it reached.
A gigantic sculpture of a wolf headed man wearing a crown was on the surface of the wall. The Soul Weigher!
As they took in the situation, the trio looked at each other. What is this? This was an empty space without a sky nor earth when it should be a dimensional space with special principles and laws. It was undoubtedly the infinite wall obstructing their paths that was maintaining the existence of this space.
Aioros spoke with clenched fists. Being a combat zealot, he clearly did not like the current situation. He turned to face Mu Zi.
At this, Mu Zi frowned. From his perception, the wall seemed endless. Shaking his head, he replied, "I can't see anything. Wang Zhong, you have the keenest Soul Power senses. Do you feel anything in particular about this wall?"
