Chapter 322 – Devil Sovereign Xingtian
“Big brother Luo Tian, save me!”
An Chunchun’s voice had woken up Luo Tian!
He had woken up from the dark abyss. He had seen the word “Hell” in the depths of the dark abyss.
He had seen a grim reaper smiling at him.
At that moment, Luo Tian thought he was really going to die.
But when he heard An Chunchun screaming his name, he immediately woke up and said to himself: “I still haven’t completed my quest. I still haven’t fulfilled my promise. I cannot die. I absolutely cannot die!”
At this moment…
Luo Tian’s heart started beating quickly…
The moment he opened his eyes, Luo Tian no longer hesitated as he chose to activate Becoming A Devil, the quest reward that required him to turn in one million souls of the deceased devil race.
He had no other choice.
If he did have other choices, even something remotely useful, he wouldn’t choose to become a devil.
When he completed the quest “Becoming A Devil” and was about to give the occupation a try, the system gave him a caution. “Becoming a devil will plant a devil seed in the user’s heart. A devil’s heart will make you lose your sanity and may possibly cause you to kill your loved ones around you!”
Luo Tian didn’t really know what it was.
But he knew what cultivation deviation was and how it felt like. When that Bloodfiend almost took control of his body, Luo Tian had felt how powerful the devil’s desire was. That desire for violence and killing was truly terrifying and beyond one’s imagination.
It was thousands of times more terrifying than the millions of corpses inside the World of Slaughter.
Luo Tian had been hesitating.
When he managed to complete the quest, he chose not to change his occupation to become a devil. When facing against the Skynet assassin who was at the Profound Venerate realm, he didn’t choose to become a devil either. But now he had no other choices left.
It was unknown if Feng Lei was dead or alive.
Xuan Yuanyi, his one man and one sword was standing there without moving so his status was unknown as well.
The devil wings on the back of Blindman Liu were getting larger and larger. If the process wasn’t stopped soon, most likely he would become an ancient huge devil again. Luo Tian understood how painful the process was because Blindman Liu’s injury last time from transforming into the ancient huge devil still hadn’t fully recovered yet. If the ancient huge devil was once again stimulated to the point of awakening, most likely Blindman Liu would die this time.
Luo Tian had run out of choices!
He could only mournfully scream into the air: “This daddy will become a devil!’
“Caution: Is player Luo Tian really choosing to become a devil?”
“Another Caution: Is player Luo Tian sure that you want to become a devil? Are you aware of the negative effects of becoming a devil?”
“Yes, yes, yes… this daddy is becoming a devil! Stop talking all this crap with this daddy!” Luo Tian started reprimanding with annoyance.
In about half a second…
“Player Luo Tian has chosen to become a devil.”
“System initiating… random selection of a devil occupation has started!”
Luo Tian closed his eyes as he waited for the results of the random selection. These kinds of random chances annoyed him because if he ended up becoming some little devil soldier, how was he going to fight it out with Long Tian?
His heart started feeling some anxiety.
His fists where subconsciously clenching on and off while there was an imaginary frown in his mind. Luo Tian’s heart slowly became quiet as he calmly waited for the results. This process felt like ten thousand years was passing by. It took so long that he almost fainted from his pain once again.
The moment Luo Tian chose to become a devil…
An Chunchun who was being held by Long Tian had gradually closed her eyes.
A holy looking bright light illuminated her body before shooting into the sky. It then fell back down and then sprinkled like rain onto Luo Tian’s body.
Luo Tian’s body was absorbing every drop of the light.
The demon fox clan woman inside the glass box had a dazed expression.
Long Tian stopped moving as shock registered in his eyes.
Ke Lei was stunned by this.
The elven woman was also stunned by this.
Qi Fu was stunned by this too but he quickly reacted afterward. He was ecstatic internally, “This is the ability that the Vice President wanted! It is indeed extraordinary, hahaha…”
Standing on the viewing platform of private room number one was a man. A man that looked very average. There was a brief flash in his eyes as he tightened his grip on the rails. There was an indescribable excitement in his heart as he muttered softly: “The legends were true. The demon fox clan really possesses this divine power, hahaha… This time I will definitely be able to make a breakthrough. I will definitely succeed! Hahaha…”
During this time…
Luo Tian’s eyes were closed so he didn’t notice anything.
He could feel that the system seem to undergo a strange change. Originally, the random selection was flickering on different positions of the devil race but it suddenly settled on a single one.
At this moment…
A system alert tone sounded off in his mind.
Luo Tian’s mind tightened as the determination of his fate had arrived.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for successfully becoming a devil!”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for becoming Devil Sovereign Xingtian!” ¹
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for comprehending Xingtian’s divine martial skill – Decapitation Strike!”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for comprehending Xingtian’s divine martial skill – Pangu’s Divine Slash!”
Luo Tian couldn’t believe what he was hearing!
He opened up the system interface and read the information one word at a time. When he saw the words Devil Xingtian, his blood started boiling with excitement!
Xingtian, one of the ten ancient devil gods.
Possessing unrivaled powers!
How could it be him?
Was this some ultimate explosion due to my awesome character? This was basically a heaven defying Devil Sovereign!
Xingtian’s strength wasn’t just terrifyingly strong, it was to the point that Luo Tian didn’t have any words to describe it! The current him was like someone who had been injected with a stimulant – every cell inside his body was incomparably excited!
“God of War Xingtian!”
“One of the ten ancient Devil Sovereigns whose strength was only second to Chiyou! ² This daddy’s character must be heaven defying to be able to randomly get Xingtian. System, me love you long long time!” Luo Tian was incomparably excited.
Except, he had no idea that the random selection had landed on Devil Sovereign Xingtian only because of An Chunchun!
The mysterious power from her had changed the system’s random low leveled choice!
This was the power that An Chunchun possessed!
An unrivaled divine power!
In an instant…
The system gave off another alert tone.
“Are you choosing to become a devil?”
Luo Tian grinned viciously and made a thought: “Yes!”
The sound of an explosion was heard from inside Luo Tian as he suddenly stood up. He was smiling in a gloomy manner while glaring at Qi Fu, “You shall die now.”
His gaze turned towards Long Tian as he said: “You will also die.”
Luo Tian’s gaze and words made him look like a grim reaper.
That feeling made Long Tian’s heart unconsciously shiver while Qi Fu directly fell to the ground in fear. When Qi Fu focused on Luo Tian’s figure, he realized there was something truly different about him but couldn’t be pinpoint why. Qi Fu then scolded: “You damn dog thing! Even if you die ten thousand times, this daddy will still be living happily!”
Long Tian scrunched up his brows and coldly smiled, “One that doesn’t know the immensity of heaven and earth. Do you really think you can kill me with your measly amount of powers? Why don’t you take a look at your own cultivation level? In front of me, you shall always be nothing but a little tiny ant.”
“You will forever be an ant that cannot turn things around!’
An Chunchun was very weak.
Extremely weak right now.
Seeing how Luo Tian was able to stand up, she lightly smiled one and said to Long Tian: “You are truly going to die.”
In a blink of an eye…
Luo Tian clenched his fists and his entire body exploded forth with a crazy change! The unrivaled powers of a Devil Sovereign had exploded out from his body!
Devil Sovereign Xingtian was coming!
¹ – Xingtian is the mythological headless giant that has appeared in the novel Desolate Era? I don’t completely remember but it was during a war when multiple people would make a formation and transform into it. Correct me if I’m wrong in the comments section and I will fix it.
² – Chiyou is another mythological character that is worshipped as a God of War who had lost to the Yellow Emperor in a fight. He had a bull’s head, human body, 4 eyes, and 6 arms.
