Did you choose me just because I am the root of all the chaos? Since you think I am always surrounded by perils and could die at any moment, I dont understand why youd this.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic Gods eyes glimmering with a profound, piercing brilliance. The root of chaos will indeed bring about chaos. However, it is an immense blessing to you, as well as to the people around you!
You must have felt it deeply, I believe. You bring destruction to your enemies, but you also bring endless benefits to the people around you. Take the two deities with faint breaths on you, for instance.
They should have been dead by now, right? By following you, they get to receive nourishment and blessings; thus, they have recovered part of their godly spirits. The day on which they resume their divine positions is right around the corner.
From what I understand, the root of all chaos destroys everything but extracts advantage from the destruction to strengthen himself and the people around him. Given how experienced you are with this, I guess I should take your word for it!
Hence, if my heir stays by your side and under your care, hell be showered with boundless benefits. If he is left alone in the Jingyu Realm instead, Im afraid mishaps will befall him before he even thrives!
After all, the eight deities can barely tolerate another deity who could see right through their secrets to grow.
It turned out that he did that to preserve the legacy of his Divine Path and prevent the eight other deities from extirpating it.
Alright, if you perish before your heir gets to grow, I will take care of him on your behalf until he becomes a deity, Su Yu chose to accept after some contemplation.
But Ill be honest with you; dont expect me to give up everything for him. Hell only be a subordinate while staying by my side.
Fine, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God agreed upon it magnanimously, as if he was afraid Su Yu might go back on his promise.
This old fellow Su Yu thought to himself. Was he at a disadvantage?
Send your heir to me only when you cant hold on any longer, Su Yu said. Despite being feeble, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God still had a few more years left as long as there wasnt any major untoward happenstance.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God gladly agreed.
In that case, I will help you get rid of the foreign deity whom you are guarding against now. Consider it a little sincerity of mine, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God chuckled as he said.
Su Yus face grew a little solemn. Has he come into the city already?
Yes, hes pacing outside the mansion. As a deity, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God easily sensed the arrival of the Book Deity.
Su Yus eyes flickered. You can only chase him away?
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God rolled his eyes. What else did you expect? With my current strength, I cant keep him even if I risk my weathered life.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God wasnt a combative deity. His greatest strength was those eyes of his, which could see through everything in the world.
Su Yu wasnt pleased with merely chasing the Book Deity away.
With a brooding look filled his eyes, Su Yu asked, Can you manage to probe his weaknesses?
Ill try. The Purple-Eyed Demonic Gods closed his eyes as a surge of enigmatic waves swirled out from them.
Before long, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God opened his eyes to reveal the shock within them. How odd. This man is like a maelstrom with a profound bottom that cannot be seen. This is the first time I met such a deity.
Thinking his reputation was being threatened, he proclaimed, Let me try once again!
No need for that, this man is unfathomable. Su Yu wasnt disappointed. It was like he had expected it.
He had always found the Book Deity dreadful, so anything unusual about him wasnt peculiar to Su Yu.
We can only employ the dumbest method possible, Su Yus eyes shone as he spoke, And I hope Purple-Eyed Demonic God gives me a hand to draw him out.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God queried, What method?
He only dares to take action once you leave. Su Yus eyes glinted.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God understood it by heart. You mean that I could pretend to leave, and when he strikes, I could cooperate with you from the outside and give him a back thrust?
After some consideration, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God nodded in agreement. He stayed in Su Yus mansion for half a day then pretended to leave. He was hiding somewhere beyond the city, awaiting Su Yus command.
Inside the city, the Book Deity had taken no immediate action, keeping his eyes on the mansion instead. Indifferent, he muttered, Trying to lure me out, huh?
Having been defeated several times by Su Yu, the Book Deity was extremely cautious about Su Yus every move.
A day passed, and then two more after that
Even after a fortnight had passed, the Book Deity was still quietly waiting with great patience.
Time passed slowly until one month had finally passed.
At that moment, a wave of divine brilliance surged and emerged abruptly above the mansion. It was the Purple-Eyed Demonic God, who had returned.
The Book Deity looked as if he had expected his arrival. I wont be easily fooled again, Su Yu!
His eyes shimmered as the Book Deity disappeared from the Seawatch City, not a single trace to be found.
In the mansion
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God appeared before Su Yu and heaved a sigh. That Book Deity could keep his equanimity, it seems like he has speculated your plan.
Slightly furrowing his brows, Su Yu said, What a nuisance.
This man is so cunning, luring him out is exceptionally challenging, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God said. Suddenly, his face changed. Hold on, he left!
Left? Su Yu put on a contemplative look.
Has he given up? The Purple-Eyed Demonic God asked.
Su Yu shook his head with a slight frown. No way! From what I know about this man, he most likely went to think of other ways. Theres no doubt hell use some precarious tricks.
What on earth was he trying to do? He had left all of a sudden. Where could he have gone
Inadvertently, his gaze swept towards the Purple-Eyed Demonic God with a look of understanding in his eyes. Purple-Eyed Demonic God, I suppose he has gone to your territory.
What? The Purple-Eyed Demonic God was slightly stunned. If hes targeting you, why did he go to my mansion instead?
Its a diversion tactic, Su Yu replied calmly. Creating chaos in your territory will force you to leave my side. That is the secret intrigue of the Book Deity no, that is an open intrigue! Even if you knew his plan, youll still have to return to your territory.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic Gods brows were deeply furrowed. In his territory, there wasnt anything that he couldnt let go of aside from his heir, whom he had to be concerned with.
If the Book Deity found him, the consequences would be fatal.
The Purple-Eyed Demonic God was in a difficult position. If he headed back to provide aid, he would fall right into the trap. Without the Purple-Eyed Demonic Gods assistance however, Su Yu could hardly deal with the Book Deity on his own.
Right at that moment, Su Yu said, Purple-Eyed Demonic God, you should go back.
But you The Purple-Eyed Demonic God was startled. When he saw the shadow of a smile on Su Yus mouth, he seemed to understand it. You must be thinking of
Well go with the flow for now! Su Yus face was nonchalant. As long as the timing is controlled perfectly, we can surprise the Book Deity with a massive blow!
Go with the flow? Fully aware of what that meant, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God, a praising look on his face.
A moment later, the Purple-Eyed Demonic God left the mansion and hurried back to the Purple Eye City.
This time, he left for real.
Two days after he left, a surge of Divine Brilliance waves spread to the Seawatch City surreptitiously.
A divine silhouette befell the city masters mansion brazenly.
The Book Deity stood before a man-made mountain and stared indifferently at Su Yu, who was drinking by himself in the pavilion.
The two of them looked at each other from afar, murderous sparks flaring as their gazes collided in the air.
The Book Deity placed his hands behind his back. You have no one else to rely on anymore, have you? The nine deities of the Great Eastern Alliance are not present, and the Demonic God whom you befriended lately couldnt help you now. Tell me who else is going to come to your rescue!
Placid, Su Yu flashed a tender smile. You have always been so confident, even if you have suffered overwhelming defeats at my hands!
This time will be different! The Book Deitys icy eyes flickered, and the divine brilliance in his surroundings flashed as he suddenly teleported in front of Su Yu!
