Legend Of The Mythological Genes Chapter 245
Gigantic-scale aberration queen?
How was this queen gigantic?
Feng Lin silently felt puzzled. It was understandable for him to feel shocked in his heart when he saw how much the queen resembled a human.
This scene truly surpassed his imagination and didn't seem to conform to common sense.
But since she was a transcendent creature, there were no such things as logical or non-logical.
To his astonishment, Feng Lin discovered that as the strongest creature on Asura Planet, the gigantic-scale queen had abandoned size and became roughly as large as a human. Her figure was much more nimble and graceful compared to the large-scale queens, and her speed was shockingly quick, producing many after-images as sonic booms rang out in the air.
It, no she, had a devilish mesmerizing figure. Her armor contained a wild sense of beauty like a lofty queen of the wilds exuding boundless charm.
Feng Lin noted this puzzledly. It seemed that no matter which lifeforms, the higher the stage of life they were at, the more they would resemble humans.
He didn't have time to think so much. The gigantic-scale queen was currently completely enraged due to people barging into her nest. She was like the most outstanding interstellar warrior; long and sharp bone blades suddenly grew out of her arms, gleaming with a cold light as she lunged over toward the humans.
Her speed was simply too quick, producing countless after-images that surrounded the Killer King, Donghuang Ling, and the other exam candidates.
Everyone was ganging up on her.
"Pitiful humans, you actually dare to enter here." Formless spirit waves shook the area as her killing intent gushed forth.
This humanoid queen actually could speak human speech and had an intelligence that wasn't inferior to humans. It was completely terrifying.
Her spirit force twisted the air and turned corporeal. Formless blades sliced over, and everywhere her spirit force gushed by, destruction could be seen.
BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!
Donghuang Ling's golden bell was in his hands, and he kept ringing it, causing the chimes to shake the air. The sound waves were formless and ethereal, sweeping out with an imposing momentum and capable of destroying everything in the area.
The Killer King's body was bent in strange angles, defying common logic as he assumed a weird posture. He was like a totem that was connected to the profoundness of the universe. A mysterious pressure bore down on everything around him.
His body actually contorted into a position that resembled the Sanskrit word 'Lock', while he chanted the word.
Yoga was developed from ancient sanskrit martial arts. Its purpose was to connect the human spirit with the world, and it contained boundless profound mysteries.
Formless shackles appeared in the air, locking down the queen. She wasn't able to shake herself free from them.
"Good opportunity!" Donghuang Ling shouted. The golden bell in his hand kept shaking as bell chimes echoed through the air. Golden flames manifested, raising the temperature to an unbearable level and causing the air in the surroundings to evaporate.
Tornado Wind Edge!
The other exam candidates also unleashed their killing techniques as the flood of energy made the interior of the mother nest become something resembling hell in the mortal world. The queen was completely surrounded and injured by the attacks. She was screaming in pain.
Suddenly, a spirit force as vast as the ocean erupted out as a material barrier took form, enveloping the queen and isolating the energy attacks.
The vertical pupils of the queen shone with a silver light, and her spirit force erupted forth. The energy attacks from the exam candidates rebounded and instantly knocked the people around her away. The casualties were extremely heavy; numerous human figures were flung through the air before slamming heavily onto the ground.
"What?" Donghuang Ling was shocked. His own Great Sun Golden Fire had always swept through his enemies with invincibility. Yet, the queen actually managed to shake herself free from it.
But even so, the queen had to face the combined attacks of everyone and she wasn't doing so well either. Cracks could be seen on her armor as acidic blood flowed from it, causing a vile smell to permeate the atmosphere.
"Detestable humans, you all actually manage to injure me!" The queen's expression turned malevolent. The bone blades on her hand manifested a tornado as she spun in circles. The blade arts were incredibly dense as though nothing could break them apart.
Feng Lin was silently astonished as he watched by the side. This was actually a saber-type martial art!
This queen had a humanoid body, so she could naturally use ancient martial arts.
In addition, her body structure was different from humans. She had many double-joints and could move in unpredictable ways, unleashing unfathomable stances.
Her entire person floated in the air. She was using her spirit force to support herself. Bone blades flew out from her body and danced unceasingly in the air, revolving protectively around her like birds flying in a circle.
The bone blades were incomparably sharp, capable of slicing apart all objects. The moment those exam candidates were slower by a beat, they would instantly be lacerated and transformed into strips of flesh and blood that was hurriedly devoured by the aberrations in the area.
Her spirit force could still be felt in the air, causing wariness to appear in the hearts of everyone. It was very tough to defend against something as formless and ethereal as spirit force.
Donghuang Ling grunted. The golden bell in his hands was a mythological treasure, and it grew larger rapidly, enveloping him like a barrier.
The bone blades slashed over, causing ringing sounds to reverberate throughout the area. Sparks flew everywhere, but the bone blades weren't able to break the golden bell's defense.
The Killer King once again bent his body in a strange pose. His movements were beyond logic as he called out.
A blood-colored qi suddenly flooded the area, engulfing him completely. He was like an asura in the mortal world as he lunged toward the queen in a crazed manner.
His moves were extremely bizarre, but his footwork was like the wind and rain. In the legends, the asura king danced during the destruction of the world, causing baleful qi to manifest.
Those death criminals were influenced by the baleful qi; all of them rushed forward like they had lost their minds. Their eyes turned crimson as they rushed at the queen.
If the Killer King was the asura king, then these people would be his asura soldiers. Their expressions changed. Their faces turned green and they sprouted fangs as they snarled furiously.
But this queen was a true transcendent monster; she was extremely ruthless. Regardless of how fierce the death criminals are, they were easily killed by her, and their flesh and blood littered the ground.
The Killer King also found it tough to fight her head-on. He could only depend on his bizarre yoga arts and barely manage to protect himself. But even so, he was battered by the attacks. He howled loudly, "Donghuang Ling, if you still don't come out and help me, don't blame me for forgetting our agreement!"
He made a sinister threat, seeking for help.
"Killer King, please calm your anger. The queen is too powerful, and the two of us won't be able to win against her. We need everyone to work together." Donghuang Ling leaped out from his golden bell.
"Friends, if we don't kill the queen today, none of us will be able to escape. Let's kill her first before we discuss how to distribute the points!" He stared at his surroundings and roared.
"Good, let's kill the queen!"
"I'm here to help you!"
"Remember your words!"
Numerous voices rang out.
Those exam candidates also knew that the most critical task now was to kill the queen or all of them would be in dire straits.
Another group of exam candidates rushed over, releasing their auras. All of them were at the elite cultivator realm. They didn't hesitate and launched their attacks instantly.
Cosmos Ice River!
All of them unleashed their consummate techniques.
A monk suddenly glowed with resplendent light as he transformed into a world-destroying lord and violently attacked the queen.
A silver-haired young man radiated icy energy that was cold enough to freeze all things in the world. An ice river formed, arcing through the air, its power slamming against the queen.
Another man clad in a set of metal armor lifted his arms. The metal particles in the planet's crust were drawn up, becoming sabers, swords, axes—all types of cold weapons as they shot out.
Waves after waves of the guard-types aberrations were instantly killed when they rushed over.
For a period of time, the surroundings were cleared of aberrations save for the queen alone.
"DIE!" Seeing her subordinates dying miserable deaths, the queen was incomparably enraged. Her spirit force gushed unbridledly into the gemstone embedded in her chest as it manifested countless tentacles-like rays that inundated the surroundings.
For some of the exam candidates who failed to evade in time, they were directly grabbed by the tentacles and screaming in agony. Their bodies instantly turned to blood.
(What an Asura heart!)
When the Killer King saw this, he wasn't worried but was extremely happy instead. He licked his lips as greed flashed in his eyes.
"The gemstone is actually an Asura Heart?" Yana was shocked when she saw this scene.
"What item is that?" Feng Lin's heart stirred as he asked.
"It is an item that will only form on a life planet after countless years of massacre. It was the crystallization of the death of countless lives. Bones are first piled up and they would become fossils, then the impurities in those fossils are gradually refined, and a translucent and sparkling gemstone would be formed. Asura Heart is purely formed from bloody aura, as well as the essence of the multitude of living beings. It is an extremely rare and wondrous treasure. Usually, a life planet needed thousands of years of massacre before an Asura Heart would have the slightest chance of forming.
"Once, that irresponsible father of mine has warned us about the Ultimate Killer King, saying that the Killer King was walking on the Asura King Mythology Path. However, he is currently only at the asura level, and there is a limit to the troubles he can cause. But if he managed to gain an Asura Heart, he would be able to use it to awaken the Asura King Gene and became a grand cultivator. At that time, everywhere he goes to shall become seas of blood as endless slaughter will follow him. For such a treasure, if an ordinary person obtained it, the Asura Heart would be able to assist that person, allowing the body of that person to transform into an asura body, increasing the chances of him breaking through to the grand cultivator realm," Yana heavily spoke as a look of worry clouded her face.
If the Killer King managed to get his hands on that, there would be a grand cultivator who killed people like pulling out weeds being born on Asura Planet. When that happened, these exam candidates would all be in danger.
No wonder the Ultimate Killer King planned it all out and ensured that he was deported to Asura Planet. So, it was due to the existence of the Asura Heart which he needed to break through to the grand cultivator realm. Once he broke through, those Cosmos University's examiners would truly not be able to do anything to him.
Asura King Mythology Path?
Feng Lin silently mused.
Asura was a famous evil god from sanskrit mythology. It was born in the blood sea and conducted massacres, taking heavenly deities as its enemy.
This heretic god of the blood sea seemed to be walking on this path. He naturally had to use slaughter to establish his path. No wonder he would have a title like the Ultimate Killer King.
These exam candidates were all geniuses of the solar system and had extraordinary origins and wide horizons. All of them recognized the embedded gemstone in the queen's chest and felt greed stirring their hearts.
This was an item that could aid one to break through a major realm. Naturally, everyone would desire it.
The queen used her spirit force to control the Asura Heart to unleash its divine might. Blood-colored tentacles whipped out in a frenzy. The moment they came in contact with someone, they would directly absorb the life force of the unfortunate person, transforming them into blood that would be stored inside the gemstone.
The gemstone suddenly emitted a sound like a whale drinking water as the blood radiance from it grew even more intense and bizarre.
Despite this terrifying scene, those exam candidates didn't retreat or cower. They actually attacked with more intensity.
Asura Hearts were extremely rare in the universe. If they could obtain it, they would have a hope of breaking through to the grand cultivator realm.
Avarice blinds the eye of judgment!
Numerous gazes stared straight at the Asura Heart; they were unable to shift their eyes away.
A cold voice rang out, shaking them awake.
The Killer King's sinister stare surveyed everyone. "The queen can be given to you all, but the Asura Heart is mine. Whoever dares to covet it would become the enemy of my dao!" His killing intent flooded the area.
Everyone was perspiring cold sweat. They didn't dare to look again at the ruby gemstone, but no one knew what the thoughts in their hearts were.
The blood tentacles continued grabbing out.
Donghuang Ling's bell chimes rang out unceasingly as the formless soundwaves actually turned corporeal and bounded the tentacles together. After that, numerous ripples manifested and tore the tentacles into pieces.
The other exam candidates also used their techniques.
The Asura Heart manifested countless tentacles that danced about wildly in the air.
The queen fought one against all, yet she was actually at an advantage.
The Killer King acted again. He folded gestures with his hands and punched out with the force of mountains, aiming for the queen's head.
The other exam candidates were providing support by the side while the Killer King personally moved in, fighting against the queen.
The two of them were like top-level martial artists unleashing profound moves against each other.
One was an aberration monster; the other seemed to be an asura. Their moves contained the force that was beyond what normal humans could achieve. Their techniques were unfathomable and contained immense might.
Feng Lin silently contemplated, experiencing the killing intent within while absorbing the essence of the techniques they used.
The bone blades danced wildly in the air, lacerating all objects that got near to the queen.
Her tentacles writhed and lashed out, causing fissures to appear on the ground.
Right now, the humanoid queen floated in the air, fighting against everyone else. The Asura Heart on her chest kept gathering energy, allowing her endurance to be off the charts. Despite fighting for a long time, she wasn't at a disadvantage at all.
The Killer King could no longer suppress his desire. His arms crossed in front of his chest as he floated in the air, continuously executing various yoga poses while chanting sanskrit words. Formless energy locked down the space he was on. Everything before him shattered into pieces as his surroundings entered a vacuum state.
The spirit force of the aberration queen, the bone blades, the blood tentacles… all of them crumbled away before the words of truth.
These exam candidates all had wealthy combat experience; how could they let such a chance go? All of them rushed over.
The golden bell continued ringing, and the energy blasts from the exam candidates continued flowing forth as well. The various exam candidates rushed over and surrounded the queen.
The queen kept screaming in pain; she suffered at least a thousand attacks by now. Many cracks appeared on her armor as her blood flowed from her wounds.
However, the gemstone in her chest flashed with a blinding radiance. The queen suddenly transformed into a beam of blood-colored light when everyone shut their eyes. She wielded bone blades and rushed into the crowd like an apparition, intending to kill everyone.
Wherever the blades slashed, blood would flow.
Screams rang out endlessly as those death criminals and exam candidates died one after another. They were transformed into blood before they got absorbed into the gemstone.
Donghuang Ling's arms trembled. He forcefully endured an attack as cracks appeared on his golden bell.
After all, this was just a copy; there was no way it could be the true fate treasure of Huaxia mythology.
When the queen moved toward the Killer King, he adopted a 'suppression' yoga posture to negate the queen's power. However, the queen's spirit force coalesced into a fist and punched him, sending him flying through the air. The Killer King smashed against a stone wall, causing a huge human-shaped hole to appear.
He gritted his teeth and climbed up while panting heavily. All his attacks earlier expended a great deal of his energy; his energy consumption was extremely great.
"Blood and meat, I need blood and meat!" His throat suddenly issued a beast-like growl. His eyes were bloodshot and all of a sudden, he lunged toward an exam candidate near him and dismembered that guy before starting to feast on the corpse.
Blood flowed from the corners of his mouth.
A mysterious tattoo manifested on his skin, extending all the way until it reached the floor and forming a great formation.
He dumped the corpse there as the blood was drawn out by an invisible force, congregating together before entering the Killer King's body. A black miasma emitted from him. Right now, he resembled a black-colored evil ghost from hell.
Feng Lin felt chills in his heart.
One aberration queen, one Killer King. Both of them could absorb the flesh and blood of humans to strengthen themselves. They were simply like the incarnations of Asura and Yaksha from hell descending to the mortal world.
"Not enough, this is far from enough." The Killer King's bloodshot eyes stared at his subordinates. The eyes of those death criminals near him suddenly turned vacant as they punched a hole in their chest and took out their hearts. Although they suicided, they still maintained an eerie smile on their faces.
"Still not enough!" The Killer King swept his gaze at the surroundings. The formation on the ground suddenly expanded like a bloody maw, opening up and wanting to devour the exam candidates as well.
The corpses around could be piled up into a small mountain, the bones could be used to build a pagoda, and the amount of blood flowing on the ground was so much that it could form a sea…
"Blood Sea Altar! Rise!" The Killer King roared in rage. The bones, bodies, and blood around him all gathered, radiating a bloody qi that soaked his entire body. The Killer King's body suddenly changed. Two horns could be seen atop his head. He had become a devil as he grew over five meters tall.
"Damn, he tricked me!" Donghuang Ling didn't expect that the Killer King would target his own allies when he got caught up in bloodlust. The fragile alliance between them instantly crumbled.
It was more important to protect oneself rather than to hunt the queen.
The golden bell that was filled with cracks enlarged once again, enveloping Donghuang Ling like a barrier.
When the Killer King felt the desire to kill, he had no way to retract it. He started to frenziedly slaughter everyone around him.
At this moment, the queen acted too.
Both of them were like incarnations of slaughter. The two parties that entered the mother nest had heavy casualties; almost everyone was wiped out.
For now, the Killer King intentionally avoided the queen. He turned his attention toward the death criminals and the exam candidates as he started a massacre.
The more corpses there were, the higher the Blood Sea Altar would be, further increasing the intensity of the Killer King's aura. His cultivation base rose at an incredible speed, radiating a formless pressure that continued to climb.
He transformed into an asura from hell, massacring the multitude of lives. After a period of time, he finally halted as there were no more people near him. All of a sudden, his gaze turned to the corner where Feng Lin's group was hiding.
"Sister!" Aris screamed. The Killer King was aiming for Yana, wanting to capture her.
A metal cudgel heavily swung out.
A powerful force gushed over as Feng Lin's figure rapidly retreated, pulling the two sisters with him.
"It's you!" After an attack of his was blocked, the Killer King instantly recognized the familiar silhouette of Feng Lin who had escaped him earlier.
(After managing to escape one time, does he think he can escape for a second time?)
The Killer King was extremely angered and wanted to continue to pursue Feng Lin. However, after a while, he stopped and glanced at the humanoid queen who was radiating waves of anger.
(No rush! The most important thing now is to obtain the Asura Heart. All other things are secondary.)
(After I become a grand cultivator, I can easily dominate the entire Asura Planet. By then, not even the examiners will be able to do anything to me. I will kill this brat at that time then.)
He turned and stepped toward the queen.
BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!
The Killer King absorbed the blood qi of all the bodies on the ground, making it so that his vitality stat climbed to a level where he could fight equally with the queen.
The two most terrifying creatures on Asura Planet were fighting each other. The aftershock of their battle gushed out, shaking the interior of the mother nest.
"The Killer King is fighting against the queen now. Things are too dangerous. You two should hurry up and leave, or I might not be able to protect you two any longer!" After blocking one strike from the Killer King, Feng Lin's blood and qi churned wildly as his face was flushed from the impact.
"What about you?" Yana hurriedly asked.
Feng Lin smiled but didn' reply. He turned and dashed back into the mother nest, not giving the sisters any chance to stop him.
On the Blood Sea Altar, the Killer King danced barefoot. The asura aura from his body cloaked him completely, transforming into a powerful pestle as he was doing the Dance of the Asura.
Sanskrit chants echoed through the air, filled with an intent of destruction and slaughter.
His hair fluttered wildly in the wind, resembling snakes as his aura kept rising. He had already broken through the limits of elite cultivator and had reached the level of grand cultivator, capable of dominating the aberration queen.
Although the aberration queen was strong, her cultivation base was stuck at the grand completion phase of the elite cultivator realm. The suppression of vitality stat made it tough for her to fight back.
The footsteps of the Killer King quickened. The demon subduing pestle formed from the asura aura struck out with the force of thunder, slamming into the cracked armor of the queen as more blood flowed out from her wounds.
"How could I be defeated by a pitiful human?" The queen couldn't believe it. Her face was filled with despair and at the next moment, the demon subduing pestle knocked her to the ground. Her armor shattered completely, and she was powerless to resist.
"Hehehe, I purposely planned things out so I would be deported to Asura Planet. The reason for this was all because of the Asura Heart. Finally, it is going to belong to me!" The Killer King stared fixedly at the ruby gemstone embedded in the queen's chest. It was like he could already see the scenes of him becoming a grand cultivator. He then began to laugh like a maniac.
"Give it to me!" He roared. His fingers formed claws as he grabbed out through the air.
At this moment, a gigantic cudgel expanded before his eyes and slammed into his claws with the force of ten thousand catties.
At the next moment, his body was like a cannon, being blasted into the ground.
Upon seeing the familiar silhouette, the countenance of the Killer King warped. "It's you, you actually dared to return here. Are you courting death? How dare you spoil my plans!"
Feng Lin took the chance and sped toward the queen, the look in his eyes was immeasurably deep.
(Not only have I returned, but the Asura Heart as well as the aberration queen…)
(I want them both!)
