Chapter 663: No Room For Regret
Deep in the Untraversable Sea, Seven Demon Mountains.
For thousands of years, endless amounts of starlight had carved the edges of Seven Demon Mountains. Despite the waves crashing repeatedly into the riffs, Seven Demon Mountains still remained erect.
Their existence was extremely mysterious. Over the annals of history, there were Empyreal Kings in the Tian Yuan world who wished to probe the deep depths of the Untraversable Sea to figure out its secrets. However, when they passed by, they failed to discover Seven Demon Mountains.
Even if they saw them, they would not be able to tell anything special about these black rocks.
However, Seven Demon Mountains were extremely unusual today.
The Untraversable Sea in a 5000 mile radius around Seven Demon Mountains, which should have been light red in color had now turned deep blue.
Looking into the distance, the Untraversable Sea was a boundless expanse of blue water.
However, floating above the deep blue water surface, there was a gigantic array. What seemed like the supposed redness in the sea water was coagulated in the array, causing every runic pattern of the array to look extremely red.
Right in the middle of the circular array was Seven Demon Mountains. To be accurate, the center was the middle mountain of Seven Demon Mountains, a Black-armored Demon God.
At this moment, the starlight swarmed down from the heavens, illuminating this Demon Mountain. This allowed people to vaguely make out the phantom image of a tall man sealed in the Demon Mountain.
This man was like a mountain peak himself. He wore ancient black armor and he held a black lance. A bundle of long hair was tied up in his helmet, and his eyes looked as bright as lighthouses in the sea.
As the array flickered, it absorbed the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi from its surroundings, sealing this mountain.
The black-armored man had a stern expression, but he remained motionless. Despite standing there, he caused people to shudder right to their very souls.
Not far from the red array stood the Reincarnators, and upper echelons of Blood Moon.
One of them was the person with executive control over Blood Moon, the current Martial Alliance Leader.
He was now wearing a black long robe, and his feet were stepping on the large array's blood runes. The star-shaped scar in the middle of his eyebrows was shimmering again and again.
He was controlling the array, trying to wear down the black-armored man's final consciousness.
For tens of thousands of years, he had been doing this.
Back then, when the Azure Yang Lord established the seven seals to seal the seven Demon Disciples, his goal was to use the endless passage of time to slowly wear the seven Demon Disciples' consciousnesses away.
However, the seven Demon Disciples were too powerful. It probably needed an additional period of time amounting to tens of millions of years for their consciousness to completely disappear. However, the Martial Alliance Alliance Leader could no longer wait any further.
This matter was of utmost importance, so he was fully focused. However, beside him, the other Reincarnators faced the Black-armored Demon God with flustered expressions and uncertainty.
They were afraid.
Even though the Demon Disciple was sealed, just facing him struck fear in their hearts.
"Why are you panicking!?"
The Alliance Leader coldly bellowed. "No matter how strong the Black-armored Demon God is, he has already been sealed for tens of millions of years. Furthermore, it is a seal created by Jian Qingyang. This seal can wear spiritual souls and consciousness down. Just sealing a Tian Yuan world warrior for a few years would be enough to reduce him into a walking zombie."
"The Black-armored Demon God's spiritual soul is ancient, allowing him to endure the effacing caused by the seal, but it is extremely contrived. Over the long periods of time, his spiritual soul's strength has been constantly weakening."
"Now, his aura may be powerful, but the amount of consciousness he possesses can nearly be neglected."
The Alliance Leader would meticulously check on the Black-armored Demon God's consciousness every incarnation he had.
His consciousness had clearly weakened a bit every ten thousand years.
And in the world-shaking battle tens of millions of years ago, the Black-armored Demon God had been stabbed in the heart directly by the Azure Yang Lord.
This sword had inflicted an extremely serious injury on the Black-armored Demon God.
Despite so much time having passed, that sword wound remained on the Black-armored Demon God's chest. There was even a sword gash on his chest armor.
After being reprimanded by the Alliance Leader, the Reincarnators forcefully calmed their nerves and carried on contributing their strength to maintain the array.
The bright red array was like a gigantic miller which was grinding away the Black-armored Demon God's consciousness bit by bit.
However, it was going too slow.
If a primordial desolate beast, which was in deep slumber, was stabbed in the heart, it might be instantly killed. But if a wound was inflicted on it, slowly letting it bleed itself away, it might still eventually wake up in a weakened state.
"Lord Sacred Ambassador, it has been a while since Zhulong's trip to the Soul Tomb happened. According to our plans, he should have awakened all the Yin specters in the Soul Tomb yesterday. He should have arrived in the Untraversable Sea today through a teleportation array, but up to now, there has been no news from him… "
These Reincarnators lacked the confidence, mainly due to the disappearance of Zhulong.
Upon hearing the inquiries from the Reincarnators, the Alliance Leader's expression turned sullen.
With both of them being first generation Blood Moon, the Alliance Leader and Zhulong had a mysterious mental connection, and now, that mental connection was becoming weaker and weaker.
There were only two possibilities for such a situation to occur.
The first reason would be Zhulong abandoning his present body and beginning his next reincarnation.
The second reason would be Zhulong had been killed!
With the situation at hand, the Alliance Leader refused to believe that Zhulong would choose to reincarnate at such a critical moment. Furthermore, it was not that simple to reincarnate. It required a lot of preparation, and Zhulong reaching a sufficiently high cultivation level.
Then the only possibility was the second one. Zhulong had been killed…
Just thinking of this possibility made the Alliance Leader feel a wrench in his heart.
As first generation Blood Moon, Zhulong was one of the backbone of Blood Moon's organization. The Alliance Leader also had a brotherly affection with Zhulong.
Now, Zhulong had been killed…
Who could kill Zhulong despite all the array protections in the Soul Tomb?
The Alliance Leader could not figure it out. He knew Zhulong's strength very well. Although the Desolate race's Jiang Xiaorou had a peerless bloodline, her strength was mainly on the control of desolate beasts, so she was definitely no match for Zhulong.
It had to be someone else who had killed Zhulong. Who could it be?
The Alliance Leader was vexed. All his machinations were now in a perilous state with Zhulong's death and the failure of the Yin specter army to appear.
The Black-armored Demon God temporarily sealed in the array would definitely be revive. It was impossible to prevent it.
The Alliance Leader's plan was to use the array set up by the Azure Yang Lord and tens of millions of years, along with the Yin specter army's soul devouring abilities to wipe out the Black-armored Demon God's consciousness. After that, the Alliance Leader would then carry out his final reincarnation under the guard of the other Reincarnators and Zhulong.
By abandoning his original body to undergo a reincarnation, he would take over the Black-armored Demon God's body.
To Reincarnators, the strongest thing was their souls. After numerous reincarnations, the potential of their souls had been expended. As for their bodies, they would obtain a new one every time. They were fated to abandon their old bodies after every reincarnation, so they did not put too much effort into tempering their bodies, so it was not a heart-wrenching event to abandon their bodies in every incarnation.
And the new body the Alliance Leader would obtain was the Black-armored Demon God's. With powerful life force, not only could it extend his overall life span that had been shortened from his repeated reincarnation, it would also result in a quantum leap in his strength.
That reincarnation would be more similar to possession. However, it was a special possession that combined the usage of the "Heavenly Dao Reincarnation Grand Technique".
Zhulong was dead!
Instantly, the Alliance Leader experienced immense pressure!
He had already made the first step, and there was already no room for regret. Once the Black-armored Demon God awoke with a tinge of consciousness, it would be able to sense what the Alliance Leader had been doing over the tens of millions of years.
And his outcome would be obvious. He would not be able to hide because just as he had a mental connection with Zhulong, the Black-armored Demon God, who created Blood Moon, also had a mental connection with the Alliance Leader.
With the mental connection, he would be able to find him, and the outcome would be death!
He could no longer turned back. However, without the Yin specters' aid, how was he to wipe away the final consciousness the Black-armored Demon God had with the array he had?
