Wuxiaworld > God of Slaughter > 583 Fate fusion

Shi Yan looked like a Bloody Ghost. His body was soaked with blood. His vessels were cracked, and his eyes bloodshot.

The crazy, violent energy from the Foreign Sky Disseminating Flame was wreaking havoc in his body. The violence of this energy was hard to imagine. It had devastated Shi Yan's body like a paste pulp, horrible to look at him.

The cold air that chilled to his bones was absorbed into flesh and bones in his entire body. It then expanded in Shi Yan’s Sea of Consciousness, which helped him restore his consciousness.

Crack Crack Crack!

The sound of ice congealing arose in his body. Thick layers of ice and mist appeared, enveloping him.

The cold aura of the Ice Cold Flame burst out abruptly!

From the Blood Vein Ring as the core, the cold power permeated his organs and limbs. It came to each fraction of his vessels to freeze it. Currently, his severely damaged body was frozen.

A cold stream flowed in his soul while a gloomy, cold light shone on Shi Yan’s bloodshot pupils.

War Devil, Ghost Hunter, Devouring Gold Silkworm, and the King of Demonic Insects were standing on guard. The Blood Vein Ring flashed with red light, as the Holy Spirit God and the Earth Flame disclosed themselves silently. They were watching over Shi Yan from different directions, keeping him in the middle of their protection circle.

It was Lei Ji.

He was smiling deceitfully, standing one hundred meters away from Shi Yan. He wasn’t hurried. Lightning was weaving in his eyes, shining dangerously that could haunt people.

To be exact, he was the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame, the second rank among the nine heaven flames with the brutal fame. This flame liked to slaughter. He hated every creature that had a body. He was born from lightning, and his existence seemed to exist to destroy this world.

He looked at Shi Yan oddly, he didn't move. Lightning strikes were constantly moving in his eyes. 

Rumble Rumble!

Nine Skies God Thunder boomed. No one knew how and where it came from. The subterranean Shady Firmament Old Mound was shaking unceasingly.

In the reverberating thunder, a bunch of thunder snakes slithered in the air with their long, scary tongues. They looked lively, hiding perceptibly in the gloomy horizon. Those snakes were carrying a wild, bloodthirsty energy that could burst out at any minute.

The group of strange creatures including Ghost Hunter, Devouring Gold Silkworm couldn’t hide their fear. Under such heaven power, they started to be agitated.

That kind of thunder and lightning could destroy all creatures’ souls. When strange creatures like Ghost Hunter and the Devouring Gold Silkworm got hit, all traces of their existences in this world would be eradicated.

Among the heaven flames, besides the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame, the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame was the second one which had the power that could destroy souls directly.

Let alone the demonic beasts like the Ghost Hunter or the Devouring Gold Silkworm, even the strange living beings like the Earth Flame or the Holy Spirit God couldn’t bear it.

In the legends, when the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame’s energy was the strongest, it could even burn the God Soul of a King God!

In the reverberating thunder, the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame suddenly stooped and shouted, "Get out!"

Shi Yan’s bloody body was frozen. From a distance, he looked like a giant blood crystal, which was strange and scary in this gloomy tomb underground.

Crack Crack Crack!

The cracking sound echoed unceasingly from his body. It was the sound of breaking bones and cracking vessels.

His consciousness was restored. He looked at the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame, which had occupied Lei Ji’s body. Bloodthirsty intent filled his bloodshot eyes as if he didn’t care about how strong his opponent was or how fatigued his body was.

"He’s coming for me."

"And me."

The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame and the Ice Cold Flame sent him their soul fluctuations. Two strange aurae flowed along his frozen vessels and got out of his body.

The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame was bright silver, and the Ice Cold Flame was crystal white. They were now the two small flames, standing on Shi Yan’s right and left shoulders.

An exhausted willpower stormed into the deep place in his soul. Then, the soul energy of his host soul was forcefully drawn half, contributing to the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame.

The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame jumped out. Under the dim-lit Shady Firmament Old Mound, it revealed a small, handsome appearance, which was somehow similar to Shi Yan.

Shi Yan was stunned, looking at the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame. He could feel clearly a mysterious thread that connected him and the bright silver flame. This thread was invisible and intangible. He could only use soul contact to sense it.

Under the connection of that soul thread, his original soul power was drawn and poured into the bright silver flame bit by bit, which surged the vitality of that flame.

The Ice Cold Flame couldn’t have that treat. Shi Yan and it hadn't fused into one, so it couldn't have the soul aid from Shi Yan. It was like a small snowflake, releasing the extremely cold thought to create an invisible ice wall to shield the thunder and lightning from the other.

"Living beings like us have received the favor of earth and firmament to be born into this world. You are supposed to rule every creature. But you, you two are wallowing in degeneration, living on a low human. You two are the big shame of our heaven flames! I come here to unchain you. And, I'll let you fuse with me. We will become one. We will see the origin. We will become the God of all creatures, big or small. We will build the regime that will rule tens of thousands of years!"

The World Extinguishing Thunder Flame spoke as if it were singing with a strange melody. It slowly spouted out the arrogant lines.

"The power of his and mine are damaged badly through time. But you, after a long time of constant consuming, you don't have even 1% left. You are no different from us. You want us to consider you the origin, fuse with you, and deem you our master. Do you think you can do that?"

The small, handsome face that the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame condensed was cold, ruthless, and disdainful.

The Ice Cold Flame was a thumb-sized crystal clear snowflake, which had a milky white flame inside it. It was surging with vehement soul energy. "We are all heaven flames. Why do you want to harm yourself and us? If you absorb us, of course, you can be stronger. But your current power can't do that. My advice to you is… leave. After several times of thunder calamities, when you can regain your power, you can consider this one more time."

"Haha. I’ll evolve to another level when I take you in. My recovery will be faster. Until I’m fully recovered, I’m not able to challenge it. You are the stone that I can use to challenge it. You should be honored. I’m trying for the "Last Mark of Fusion" in our fates. When we fuse, it follows the Sky Order. This is your fate. You can’t violate it… and you must not violate it."

The World Extinguishing Thunder Flame spoke with a neither slow nor fast tone. Its tune was like a Buddhist prayer, which was filled with an ancient aura, as if it were the Great God of the Antiquity who was praying for the fortune of all creatures, guiding them on the path of God.

"If you are determined, you can try. Although I can’t recover my power completely, you are the same as me. You can eradicate my soul, but I can also burn your seal. You can try me," said the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame solemnly.

Shi Yan’s soul shivered.

His soul power surged like a liquid being drawn out, and poured into the flame’s soul.

The aura of the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame was strengthened immediately. A silver flame burst out that could burn down all soul auras of creatures, seeming quite imposing.

Shi Yan could recognize that this flame looked as if it were facing its archenemy.

Facing the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame, the one that had a higher ranking with a better level of evolution, the flame that was always arrogant in his soul started to urge all its power to counter.

"If I fail, your soul will perish together with me," The flame sent Shi Yan its thought. "Although I'm depressed, my soul and your soul are fused. From now on, we will enjoy triumphs together and bear the damage together. Thus, you have to send your soul power to me unceasingly. That guy's so strong. Only borrowing your power can give me a way to survive." 

"Besides that, what else can help you?" Shi Yan was panicked.

"No creature can interfere the battle between heaven flames. Once we start, the power of nature will form a seal of origin to confine us. Inside that seal, no power could interfere. Since I’ve fused with your soul, I can borrow your soul power. However, your realm is too low. And, you haven’t formed the God Soul yet. I don’t know how far you could help me. Sigh, if I weren’t hurt badly in that formation, I wouldn’t have needed your soul to restore myself. Such a wrong decision…"

Shi Yan smiled miserably.

Until now, he finally knew that in that fusion between him and the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame in that abandoned area was the flame’s initiative.

Through its explanation, Shi Yan understood that the barrier in that abandoned place had hurt its soul badly. This flame had the power to kill souls, but it couldn’t use the soul to recover itself.

Although there’s a way to restore its soul, it didn’t have a choice at that time. Seemed like it couldn’t use the other method around to recover. It could only fuse its soul with some creature, using that creature’s soul to restore itself gradually.

It could see Shi Yan’s potential. That’s why it had chosen him.

Originally, Shi Yan couldn’t understand why he had fused with the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame inexplicably like that. But now he got it from the flame itself.

"You need only the soul power? Anything else that could help you?" Shi Yan cleared his mind, then inquired the flame immediately.

According to the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame, if its soul perished, his soul would die altogether. Under such circumstances, Shi Yan didn’t have a choice. He had to support it with all of his abilities to save its life and his own life.

 "You’re too weak…" sighed the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame, as if it had a huge regret.

Shi Yan gritted his teeth, his face indignant.

"Lucky that we have the Ice Cold Flame. And, after the Earth Flame evolves, it can join us, too," The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame continued, "If it’s possible, let us attack altogether, and maybe we can increase the chance to win. Ah, right, they have to be in this too. Otherwise, when I fail, they can’t escape the consequence of being absorbed." 

Shi Yan was scared.

"It’s true. If this fails, we can’t survive," said the Ice Cold Flame begrudgingly.

The Earth Flame sparkled dazzlingly. From its thought, this flame had the same idea as the Ice Cold Flame. It could also see the wrong things.

They understood well that they had no exit this time, and that they could only fight with all their lives to have the next evolution to a more complete form. Otherwise, when the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame absorbed them, the countless-year-journey of their lives would be erased directly.

They must join this fight.
