“It doesn’t necessarily mean anything just because someone witnessed it.” An unenthusiastic expression remained on Garen’s face.
“Are you saying that you aren’t planning to admit it, Commander?” said the White Dragon Mountain Emissary angrily. He had already viewed this mere Level Twelve commander in a bad light long ago. His insignificant forces depended on the strong beings behind him while he used his powerful connections to intimidate others and lead powerhouses that possessed strength that was far greater than his own. This was simply an insult to the honor of strong individuals like himself.
He was a Level Fourteen White Dragon in White Dragon Mountain who knew exactly what was going on!
“What is he not admitting? You can’t just make false accusations like this, Lord Cavenly.” Andrew remained on the side and interrupted fearlessly.
“Andrew you brat, do you have the right to speak when I’m talking to the Commander?” Cavenly of White Dragon Mountain glared at Andrew fiercely.
“Alright, alright, stop fighting. These Void Creatures or whatever are fine on the Primary Plane, so when they’re in our Abyss, who would care about these things?” screeched the representative Elder of the Demon-Hag tribe slowly. “Even if there were Void Creatures, why would it matter? We’ve never concerned ourselves with the origins of any creatures. As long as they’re in the Abyss, they’re one of us.”
“Blasphemer!” Cavenly of White Dragon Mountain’s eyes widened before he glared fiercely at the Demon-Hag Elder.
“Tiamat may be your goddess but she is not ours. You should be more careful when you speak, Cavenly.” The Demon-Hag Elder did not seem afraid of him at all.
When Garen saw that the people below him were about to quarrel, he simply clapped his hands and made some noise.
“Don’t concern yourselves with the rumors that other people are spreading. Right now, I need you to launch a surprise attack,” instructed Garen.
“Surprise attack?” said the Abominable Snowman Sara. “I’d like that! What kind of opponent are we facing this time, Commander?” He hit both of his fists against each other firmly while itching for a fight.
“Our goal this time…” Garen smiled faintly before continuing, “Is Wanku Fortress…”
“Oh?” The Abominable Snowman was slightly shocked.
Although the relationship between fortresses was not amicable now, they were still in the same alliance nonetheless. If they were to ambush another fortress, this would probably cause the other fortresses to unite and attack him instead.
No one objected. Everyone was considering Garen’s real intentions of bringing up this goal to ambush them.
“Does anyone object?” Garen spoke before them instead.
This plan was not formulated by him. On the contrary, it was simply Deception Demon Master’s demand.
This woman was not very content with only controlling half of the fortress because the laws in the Abyss were not treated as rules anyway. Although they were part of the same clan and alliance in name, no one had ruled that he could not ambush other fortresses. On the other hand, the Abyss would become more joyful because of this. The only issue was that they would have to bear a slightly greater pressure.
Since it happened to be time for them to proceed with an expansion anyway, Garen might as well aim his first goal on Wanku Fortress.
“I object,” said Mander, the Captain of the White Feather Squadron in a low voice. “With our current forces, our probability of successfully ambushing Wanku Fortress would be too low. The success rate of the plan is not great.”
“It doesn’t matter.” Garen raised his hand. “Two of Wanku Fortresses’ Deputy Commanders will dispatch people to be in charge of solving that. Moreover, I believe that their Chief Commander and Fortress Master will have a favorable final destination.” He did not state it clearly even though it appeared that he had other arrangements already.
Fortress Masters needed to be at least Level Fifteen powerhouses while simultaneously having solid backgrounds. It was also possible that they were the incarnations of certain powerful beings. However, Garen actually dared to say these words lightly.
This caused the hearts of everyone on site to tremble slightly at once.
“Since it looks like the Commander has decided already, we should just leave it at that,” said the party leader of the Corpse Monster Party quietly. “We can’t do anything that is out of our abilities but we can still do everything that’s in our power.”
“The massacre will bring even more resources and souls. Moreover, I need all these things,” said Garen, smiling.
The main point was determined then. Another round of war had erupted due to Garen’s few sentences.
Numerous Demon armies and large crowds of mercenaries and slaves charged towards Wanku Fortress that was adjoining to them. While being led by various leaders, more than a million powerful armies rushed rapidly towards Wanku Fortress that was shaped like a human ribcage.
The news traveled throughout the surrounding domains and the other fortresses quickly and immediately provoked the resentment of the Demons. Meanwhile, the Devils did the opposite. They did not actually go and attack the Void’s Vengeance Fortress. On the contrary, they converged with Vengeance Fortress’ army and attacked Wanku from the side.
Hell Army’s fourteenth division commanded over a million Devils and brought thousands of Floating Hell Battleships and various battle fortresses that covered the sky and earth as they rushed towards Wanku and launched their general offensive.
Wanku’s Commander was left with no alternative but to personally put his hand to the task out of fury. Together with his two subordinate Deputy Commanders and three first-rate powerhouses, he brought the Divine Weapon Bow of Extermination officially out to war. He was going to face a powerful opponent who was about to arrive.
Hell Army’s Commander Black Jade Horn brought his Hell Divine Weapon as well to undertake the task and fight Wanku’s Commander directly.
The sky was split into red and blue halves respectively that dyed the Abyss’ dark red deathly still sky into two different colored domains.
Numerous flames were suspended in the red sky while an abundance of blue ice crystals were floating in the blue part of the sky.
Two silhouettes of which one was red while the other was blue were colliding against each other violently now on the boundary in the middle of the two parts of the sky. They were like comets that constantly shot towards each other before turning around. They dragged their long comet tails out behind them again and again while they clashed against each other and released thunderous quaking noises.
The red figure was a Demon in flaming armor who held a double sword in his hand. He was a standard Bartoyen Demon that had a cow’s head, a bear’s body, and the legs of an elephant. Great high-temperature flames would also burn throughout his entire body constantly. He held a flaming Greatsword in one hand and a pitch-black crystal Greatsword in the other. An Energy Field that was made of terrifying temperatures that reached more than ten thousand degrees twisted in his surroundings endlessly and scorched the air until it was completely blurry.
He was the Commander of Wanku Fortress, the Level Fifteen peak Bartoyen Demon– Ron.
The blue figure on the other side wore an armor that was made of ice and a silver crown on his head. He was a muscular Warrior whose lower body was vaporized while his upper body had the same appearance as a human male except that both of his eyes were profoundly dark blue while his hair was burning with fluttering blue flames.
He was the Hell Army’s Commander Behemoth Dark, a peak Level Fifteen existence. He held a gigantic ice hammer in his hand tightly. This was his specialized Divine Weapon, the Ice Warhammer.
The changes that were occurring in both parts of the sky were caused by the terrifying energy radiation that burst forth when the black crystal sword and blue warhammer clashed against each other constantly.
The mere repercussions that erupted from the radiation made the Abyss’ adverse circumstances even more frightening.
There were not many soldiers below who dared to approach this place.
On the other side, numerous Demons and Devils were engaged in a mad slaughter. The light from their energy and their Spells that blasted forth occurred endlessly in waves while arrows, rolling stones, kerosene, corroding poisonous gas bombs, Exploding Corpses, and other various war weapons crisscrossed continuously.
A few of them had rushed too deeply into battle while their eyes were red with bloodlust. They had just chopped off a Devil’s head before they were immediately crushed into minced meat by the other Devils.
The Thorn Archers and Skeleton Archers shot their arrows and caused them to come down in torrents as Magic Arrows that carried various symbols rained down like a storm and caused numerous deaths on the battlefield.
Various large-scale Battle Spells like Meteor Fire Shower and Cold Winter Hail covered the sky and earth while enveloping numerous battle areas.
The entire battlefield was filled with chaos, massacres, and wails.
The Demons attacked the side where Vengeance Fortress’ military base camp was located.
A smaller-sized White Dragon was sitting on a specially-made metal seat while numerous elite first-rate powerhouses were following it from behind and gazing from afar at the Energy Tide that was flaring up in the sky on the faraway battlefield.
The White Dragon was Garen who was currently leading an army forward from Vengeance Fortress.
“The moment has almost arrived now and it’s time to prepare for the great battle that is about to begin,” he said in a low voice. “Your Excellency, are you prepared?”
“Prepared? No no no…” The woman in the black robe behind Garen laughed quietly. She looked like a normal elite woman who was merely standing behind Garen but everyone on site knew that she was the one who had truly initiated the war. She was the supreme and unparalleled being that came from the Void– Deception Demon Master.
“There’s nothing to prepare,” smiled Demon Master while answering.
“My powers can be restored at a rapid pace. As long as I devour most of the souls during this war again, more than half of my powers can probably be restored. Meanwhile, you…”
She looked at Garen who was in front of her.
“The only thing that you need now is the guidance of some qualitative changes… Level Fifteen qualitative changes…”
“Qualitative changes?” Garen’s powers could naturally not be hidden from Deception Demon Master. The disguise on his body was also arranged by Deception Demon Master. As a Demon Master who was named after lies, this individual’s disguises and tricking abilities were second to none among the Demon Masters. The Gods could not even dream of seeing through Garen’s true powers even if they came here.
However, he still remained as a Level Twelve White Dragon in the eyes of the outsiders.
“Yes, qualitative changes… I’ll give you the Wanku Fortress Master’s core as a gift to repay you.” Deception Demon Master spread her hands out before the shrunken Void Shadows of the two Head Commanders who were engaged in battle in the faraway sky appeared on her palm slowly.
The shrunken versions of them seemed to be clashing on her palm endlessly as if they did not realize that anything was wrong.
“Qualitative changes…” Garen had a vague idea in his heart. The core that he had decided on was the Poisonous Eye. However, as its rate of progress increased recently, changes finally appeared throughout the Enneahedron that had not stirred all along. The Enneahedron was the most effective key core that used the accumulated power from slaughtering when Void Creatures entered this world.
Even though Garen had killed so many creatures, he had not seemed to realize the functions of this plaything towards himself.
However, he could suddenly sense on this battlefield now that the faint vibrations had finally appeared throughout the Enneahedron that had blackened already.
Subtle, brittle cracking noises echoed from the Enneahedron slowly. Garen focused on it mentally before quickly discovering that an unending stream of various faint split marks had appeared throughout the inside of the Enneahedron.
As the cracks increased, Garen gradually sensed that faint changes were slowly surging upwards from the lowest root level of life. It rushed towards his head steadily after flowing throughout his entire body.
Deception Demon Master glanced at him and smiled but remained silent.
“He’s started evolving. Since the Enneahedron apparently needed to accumulate for such a long time before it could erupt, it looks like his body’s evolution needs even more sources,” said another Void parasitic body powerhouse quietly.
“That’s normal. I’ve never seen the Snakeback White Dragon branch of the White Dragon Race before,” giggled another female Demon charmingly.
More changes occurred throughout Garen’s body as the Enneahedron collapsed.
He regained his initial gigantic physique suddenly and broke the chair instantly. He was about to soar into the sky but Deception Demon Master waved her hand gently before he returned to his previous state immediately.
From an outsider’s view, Garen was still sitting on the chair and speaking to his subordinates happily. However, Garen’s body was already flying in the sky in reality. Large, contoured pieces of muscle appeared throughout his entire body while layers of molted skin began to show up on his skin as well.
Garen raised his head and roared suddenly. There was a tearing noise before two pairs of fleshy wings that resembled cicada’s wings appeared on his back suddenly. His original dragon wings shrunk gradually and turned into slender fleshy wings that were exactly like the two other pairs. All three pairs of these body parts that totaled into six wings flapped on Garen’s back slowly. These wings did not have scales on the surface and were fully dripping in blood from top to bottom. They looked like wings after they were flayed as damp mucus flowed across their surface.
Suddenly, a seemingly infinite and countless amount of densely-packed light green eyes burst open on Garen’s six wings instantly. These little eyes resembled fully-formed blisters that blinked on his wings slowly and looked on with purely evil and greedy gazes.
Garen lifted his slender snakelike neck and released an ear-piercing, sharp whistle fiercely.
