979 Three Golden Eggs
Over an hour later, Bloody sent its Leech Pods to cover the entire second layer of the Abyss Brink.
"Looking at the whole second layer of the Abyss Brink at the moment, I could only find 35 people while most of them are in the southern region. I don't see anyone within thousands of kilometer radius around the northwestern side close to the third layer of the entrance. There are a few imperial-level monsters over there, but they're no threat to us. I think that's the best place for Charcoal and the rest to elevate."
"We can't do it in the northwestern side." However, Lin Huang rejected the suggestion right away. "It's too close to the third layer of the entrance and there might be human imperial-level powerhouses entering and exiting any time. They might come to check it out if they sense the commotion."
"Then, we're only left with the northeastern side, but there's a team of five hunting over there now. They're all high-level immortal-levels," Bloody explained the reason why it had not picked the northeastern region earlier.
"It's alright. We can get Grimace to cover up the commotion of the elevation with his illusion if they're only on immortal level." Lin Huang already thought of a plan. "Let's go for the northeastern region then."
"There's a valley that's not bad in the northeastern region." Bloody marked the coordinates down as it spoke.
Although he could not set the coordinates with his Emperor's Heart Ring at the Abyss Brink, the third layer of the Abyss Brink had been explored countless times and he could purchase a detailed map with money.
Studying the coordinates Bloody had marked, Lin Huang summoned Thunder right away and sat on its back with Bloody.
He patted Thunder's neck. "To the northeastern region."
Thunder flapped its wings and rose into the sky rapidly. It brought Lin Huang tens of thousands of meters above the sky in the blink of an eye. It then flapped its wings again in the sky and sped toward the northeastern region at high speed like an arrow.
Though Thunder was quick, it took half an hour for it to bring Lin Huang to the valley Bloody had marked.
Under Bloody's guidance, Thunder landed deep in the valley.
Hopping off Thunder, Lin Huang patted Thunder's beak affectionately. "Do whatever you want now, even hunting, but don't create trouble with the humans. Also, don't go too far. I need you later."
Thunder nodded right away. It was so sick of being in card form. Naturally, it was elated to have the opportunity to move freely. It flapped its wings, rose into the sky and disappeared in the next second as if it was afraid that Lin Huang would back out on his words.
Seeing Thunder disappear, Lin Huang shook his head and smiled before summoning three Monster Cards including Charcoal, Tyrant, and the Herculean King. The three imperial monsters showed themselves as soon as the cards were crushed.
Charcoal glanced around after being summoned and asked rather curiously, "Where are the enemies?"
Tyrant and the Herculean King were puzzled too.
"Are you giving us any snacks?" Charcoal leaned its big head toward Lin Huang.
Lin Huang caressed Charcoal's head and said casually while smiling, "I didn't let you guys out to fight or give snacks out this time, but I'm going to do something that you guys have been waiting for."
"Ice cream?!" Tyrant was the first to answer. He was practically drooling as soon as he said that.
"Grilled fish?!" Charcoal was stunned for a moment and asked while widening its eyes.
The Herculean King hesitated and asked with a little uncertainty, "Is it durian?"
"I've told you guys it's not snacks," Lin Huang said helplessly while covering his face.
The three monsters clearly had disappointment written on their faces when they heard Lin Huang emphasizing that he was not giving snacks out.
"You guys are elevating to quadruple mutation." Bloody that was standing aside finally could not help but blurt it out.
The three imperial monsters were astonished to hear that.
"Are we really elevating?" Charcoal became excited all of a sudden.
"I've only gathered enough materials for elevation for the three of you, so I'm elevating you first instead of gathering all materials."
"But, Master, you're still on immortal-level. Wouldn't you be unable to summon us after we've elevated?" Tyrant asked immediately. They knew Kylie had been sealed since her elevation.
"It's alright. I'm already on peak-stage immortal-level now, so it shouldn't take long for me to break through to imperial-level," Lin Huang explained, "Xiao Hei's authorization will be activated as soon as I elevate to imperial-level. I think I will take two to three months at the most."
"Don't worry about it. I'll be the last to elevate, so I'll take good care of Master," Bloody knew what Tyrant was worried about, so it comforted it.
"You guys elevating to quadruple mutation and mythical-level will be a great help for me. I personally hope that I can elevate all of you to mythical-level while I'm still on immortal-level. If that happens, all of you would have your combat strength boosted as soon as I elevate to imperial-level. I won't have to spend more time collecting materials. So, let's not drag it out further. Go ahead with the elevation when we have the materials instead of waiting for me to get to imperial-level. Understand?"
"Understand!" Tyrant and the rest chanted in unison. The three of them objected no further after hearing what Lin Huang said.
"Alright then, Tyrant, you will go first." Lin Huang waved at Tyrant. Tyrant saw his signal and walked over.
Following the condition at the back of the card, Lin Huang took the materials for elevating and five Advance Cards out.
"Hold the god relic ax. Put this star core into your heart and drink this bottle of Spirit Lava."
Although the order sounded suicidal, Tyrant followed Lin Huang's order to a T without hesitation.
After waiting for Tyrant put all the materials into his body more than half an hour later, Lin Huang crushed the five Advance Cards in his hand and pointed at Tyrant that was kneeling on the ground, shaking.
The five Advance Cards turned into five golden beams and entered Tyrant's body which calmed quickly while the god relic ax in his hand was absorbed into his body as well. He sat leaning against a huge mountain peacefully as his body began to grow rapidly.
In the blink of an eye, he regained his normal size whereby his height reached over 30,000 meters. Even though he was sitting down, he was more than 10,000 meters tall, two folds taller than the mountain behind him.
Later on, he seemed to have fallen into a deep sleep while he shut his eyes slowly. A golden cocoon layer soon consolidated on the surface of his body.
As the cocoon was completely consolidated, Tyrant turned into a colossal golden egg.
The entire process went on for over an hour. Lin Huang was relieved when the golden egg was formed.
"Seems like the condition for elevating that Xiao Hei gave is pretty reliable."
"Looking at Tyrant's reaction, this elevation process might be uncomfortable. Please bear with it as much as you can." Lin Huang turned around to look at Charcoal and the Herculean King.
Charcoal retracted his head as Lin Huang smiled upon seeing his fear and waved at the Herculean King. "Herculean King, you're up next."
The Herculean King nodded and walked up to him. Lin Huang took out the materials for the Herculean King.
"First, put the Titan Heart into your heart. Secondly, drink the entire bottle of demigod-level Dragon Whale's blood."
After spending over half an hour putting all the materials into the Herculean King's body, Lin Huang crushed another five Advance Cards. They turned into five golden beams and penetrated the Herculean King's body.
Soon, the Herculean King's body began to grow insanely. It regained its usual height of 3,000 meters and turned into a golden egg too.
Charcoal was a little worried watching Tyrant and the Herculean King going through the process of putting the materials into their body. However, figuring that he would elevate after a moment of torture, he went up anyway.
"The first step, integrate this Star Fire into your body. Secondly, eat these 36 fire-element crystals." Lin Huang took the materials out for Charcoal one after another. What surprised it was that he did not feel like the process was torturous, just that some of them made him want to throw up.
Before it could experience any other feeling, Lin Huang had crushed five Advance Cards and they went into his body.
Soon, Charcoal regained its usual size, growing to more than 30,000 meters long. It fell asleep leaning next to Tyrant on the mountain.
It was almost four hours later when Charcoal turned into a golden egg.
Night had fallen in the Abyss Brink.
Noticing that the sky had turned dark, instead of resting, Lin Huang summoned two God Figurines' Combat Souls, the Divine Sun Tree, and the Enchanted Fairy as well as Grimace.
"Grimace, shield the area around here with your illusion skill. Divine Sun Tree and Enchanted Fairy, both of you will guard the trio's elevation. I'll be away for one to two days to hunt for Bai's demigod's soul."
After coming up with the arrangement, Lin Huang summoned Thunder and hopped onto its back. "Go to the northwestern region, the third layer of the entrance to the Abyss Brink!"
