818 The Images in His Head
In the God's Figurine which had a Divine Fire burning, a cloud of pure spiritual energy hovered above the flames and was covered by a layer of faint green glow. It was the protective layer created automatically by the God's Figurine in order for the spiritual energy to block any interference from the Divine Fire.
After some investigation, Lin Huang realized that the images flashing through his head came from the cloud of spiritual energy.
To be exact, the God's Figurine had absorbed the skinless monster's soul automatically after he killed it. With the help of the Divine Fire, it turned the monster's soul into pure spiritual energy.
Since it was filtered through the Divine Fire, most of the information in the cloud of spiritual energy, which was the storage of the monster's soul, vanished. Only a small amount of it remained and was not completely wiped off.
The few images that flashed through Lin Huang's mind was the only remaining information.
"Unfortunately, there's no more information left." Lin Huang did not manage to find out more after checking out the contents of the spiritual energy.
Lin Huang lost his mood for a bubble bath, so he put his clothes on again and returned to the bedroom.
He was initially exhausted physically and mentally from the intense fight. However, he did not feel sleepy at the moment.
His eyes were opened despite lying on the bed as he recalled the few images that had flashed through his head earlier.
The first image was the back of a man.
Although he could only see the man's back, he could discern that the man was young while his body was not exactly strong. He even seemed a little skinny and weak.
The second image was the interior of a hall. There were two rows of powerhouses sitting on both sides in the bright and magnificent hall.
There was a massive golden throne further in the hall with someone sitting on it. However, it was just a black silhouette of which no details could be detected and he could not even determine the person's gender.
The third image was a sky full of blood mist. Under the bloody sky was a variety of monsters gathering all over the land. There were at least millions of monsters within his field of vision.
Meanwhile, the fourth image was a black crack that looked like a spider web. It was a massive crack situated in the sky. The image was dark while the crack was sucking in air rampantly from all directions.
The last three images were all God's Figurines.
Not only did they include the two items that Lin Huang had just obtained, even what he had just refined in his hand was included too.
"These must be the more important memories which it put away deep in his soul without realizing to the point that the memories weren't erased in the preliminary filtering in the Divine Fire. Now, they're just static images with the audio removed.
"The bloody sky in the third image doesn't seem like it happened in our land.
"The crack in the fourth image looks like the Abyss Brink's crack, possibly the other side of it. If that's the case, it must have passed through the air crack and arrived at the human foothold via the Abyss Brink. That's a reasonable explanation. In this case, the bloody sky in the third image could possibly be the virtual zone connected to the Abyss Brink.
"The black silhouette sitting on the throne in the second image should be the God Master the skinless monster mentioned but I can't identify the man in the first image.
"The three God's Figurine images should be the reason why the skinless monster came to our land but I've no idea why would it have or if it looked for the God Figurines. It shouldn't have just created God's Figurine combat souls for all the effort that they're putting in. The nature of a God's Figurine combat soul isn't much more powerful than an ordinary combat soul's. It's just harder to kill…"
Lin Huang thought a lot about the images that he saw but the connection between the images were insufficient. He could not come up with a complete theory.
"If this monster really came from the Abyss Brink's crack, then there might be a change to the five-year catastrophe from the Abyss Brink. It seems like I'll have to visit Abyss Brink after the auction ends." Lin Huang's mind was fully occupied that night. He finally fell asleep when it was past four in the morning as a result of his physical and mental exhaustion.
Around three hours after that, Yi Zheng was going to ask Lin Huang along for breakfast after washing up.
The seal was removed automatically the night before. He was relieved now. It was rare that he could relax.
Just when he was ready to knock on Lin Huang's door, he heard the Voice Transmission coming from Bloody behind the door.
"Master's just fallen asleep a while ago. Let him rest during the day. I'll inform him before the auction starts in the evening."
Although Yi Zheng did not communicate much with Bloody, he knew about its existence, so its voice was not a stranger to him. He nodded immediately after hearing what it said. "Sure, then I won't disturb him. I'll be on my own during the day. I'll see him in the evening."
After sending Yi Zheng off, Bloody dashed back to the couch where it proceeded to work on the Heart Network.
Lin Huang slept all the way past four in the afternoon. He only woke up after sleeping for approximately twelve hours.
Although the major fight which took place in the middle of the night did not leave any after-effects on him, it exhausted him gravely. His exhaustion only went away by 60 to 70% after sleeping.
"It's 4.21p.m.? Have I slept for twelve hours?!" Lin Huang projected the clock from his Emperor's Heart Ring as soon as he opened his eyes and was shocked when he saw the time.
"You've overworked your body, so sleeping a lot from the exhaustion is normal. Generally speaking, you'd need three days at the most to recover completely." Bloody floated into the bedroom slowly. "The underground auction only opens at 7.30 p.m. You can sleep for a few more hours if you're still tired. I'll wake you up by then."
"There's no need. My exhaustion won't be completely taken away even if I sleep for the entire day." Lin Huang hopped off the bed directly.
"Then, eat something. I asked Yi Zheng to bring you some food at noon. It's in the cooler box," Bloody had arranged everything accordingly.
Lin Huang nodded and headed straight to the kitchen. He took the food out from the cooler box and brought it to the dining hall.
He asked while eating after sitting down, "Is there any news today?"
"What happened in the middle of the night is up on the local news. The media says an anonymous powerhouse killed the monster that invaded the foothold. From the news on the media, nobody knows who exactly killed the monster. Otherwise, they would've come to you for interviews."
"What else?" Lin Huang asked again after swallowing the fried egg in his mouth.
"Also, many people from the underworld are investigating this. Some of the forces are trying to find out who killed the monster that invaded. Most of them should be interesting in recruiting the killer."
"How about the God's Figurine? Did you find anything about it?" Ever since he elevated to immortal rank, Lin Huang planned to find as many God's Figurines as he could so that he could elevate to immortal-level rank-9 as quickly as possible.
"No clue. I can't find anything on the Web. I suspect the Union Government secretly did something. There's no news from the black market as well but it's only been a day, so it's normal that we haven't heard anything yet."
"It's been blocked by the Union Government? Seems like the Union Government knows what the God's Figurine is…" Lin Huang squinted lightly.
