At the split second that the Demi was forced back.
The Asura King shouted: “Barrier of Retribution!”
The 13 skeletons jumped into the air, splattering the blood on their bodies all around.
The entire room was dyed in a deep red light.
The next moment, both the red-robed old man and the 13 skeletons all disappeared without a trace.
Where they disappeared, a red-glowing irregularly-shaped entrance appeared.
The Asura King kept up chanting the Oath to maintain the entrance.
s.p.a.ce started to distort.
The Great Ghost General appeared, wearing his jet black armor and holding a jet black blade.
“How long can you hold him?” the Great Ghost General asked.
“If you can keep him busy enough to not cast a spell, he'll be stuck there for a very long time” the Asura King stopped a bit to answer.
The Great Ghost General laughed in a frenzy: “Leave it to me, I'll make sure he's unable to pay attention to anything at all”
Then he jumped into the entrance.
“Just you alone might not be enough…”
Saying so, the Asura King also went in.
As soon as he did, the red light disappeared together with the entrance.
A black-robed man appeared.
He seems excited enough to cry.
“The Heavenly G.o.d has been trapped, this is the first and only chance for 10,000 years, I'll go save Soft Note in the Heaven realm now!” he told Gu Qing Shan.
One second later, he would disappear into the void of s.p.a.ce.
“Wait!” Gu Qing Shan shouted.
“What? What else is there? I've already given you your payment”
Haze stopped and asked in confusion.
“You're going to go save her just like that?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“The Heavenly G.o.d has already been trapped, what other problems would there be?”
“Seems like you didn't understand what Soft note wanted to say, “Gu Qing Shan quickly explained, “the Great Ghost General and Asura King are the key to trapping the Heavenly G.o.d, but the 3rd card showed the scene just before her death, it tested the ability to fight against [Time Stanch] ------you still need a method to overcome this Divine Skill!”
“No, the red-robed Demi is the only Demi capable of using [Time Stanch]!” Haze loudly refuted him.
Gu Qing Shan shook his head: “You still don't get it, what she meant is that you have to both trap the Heavenly G.o.d as well as figure out a way to resolve [Time Stanch], both conditions must be met in order to save her!”
Hearing that, Haze froze.
Gu Qing Shan spoke: “Shannu”
“I'm here” Shannu appeared.
“Go and help him, you can use my skills and experience as you wish”
Gu Qing Shan then told Haze: “This sword of mine can cut off all Laws, the key to solving [Time Stanch], in the card it was also her that managed to solve it, take her with you”
Haze stared at Shannu, then at Gu Qing Shan and inhaled deeply.
“Thank you, I will never forget this favor” Haze said.
Haze walked next to Shannu and took out a card.
The card turned into light, enveloping both Haze and the Six Paths Great Mountain sword, disappearing into the void of s.p.a.ce.
After they left.
The second hand of the clock finally ticked.
One second later.
Everything returned to normal.
The President was still contemplating.
Monarch Varona was still fixing her appearance.
Anna, Zhang Ying Hao and Ye Fei Li all continued their original actions.
No one in the room noticed what happened just now.
Only the black dog fell into thought.
“The Heavenly G.o.d is trapped in a powerful Oath Barrier, the man who appeared later on went to the Heaven realm, what about you? Do you plan on going as well?” the black dog suddenly spoke up and asked Gu Qing Shan.
“I can't go, and I don't want to” Gu Qing Shan shook his head.
The demons outside the mansion in the sky were roaring.
Gu Qing Shan stood there alone, listening to the noises outside.
“I can only hope that they succeed. I already did everything I could, there's nothing else I can do to help, the only thing left for me to do is to prepare for the end of the world” he sighed deeply.
“That's true, this world is about to meet its end” the black dog spoke in a low voice.
Gu Qing Shan then noticed two notifications on the War G.o.d UI.
[The human realm and Huang Quan have further fused]
[Also, the reinforcements from Huang Quan are here]
Gu Qing Shan shook his head and smiled bitterly, sighing again.
No matter if it's the weapons or the machines, there's no way for them to save this world from the unending horde of demons.
Dong! Dong! Dong!
The sound of knocking on the door.
However, everyone noticed it this time.
Because the sound came from the door, not the void of s.p.a.ce
Gu Qing Shan knew that the weapons of Huang Quan were here.
But he didn't even want to move anymore.
He was too exhausted to care.
He has done so much, only to get such a result.
He doesn't even want to think anymore, wanting to let himself go a little bit.
Taking the bottle on the table, he poured himself a gla.s.s.
“Hm?” Zhang Ying Hao looked over.
He froze a bit.
“Fine, at least this liquor is worth to be the last before the end of the world”
Zhang Ying Hao came over and poured everyone a gla.s.s.
The President raised his gla.s.s: “Thank you for the liquor, in the final moments, I can only hope that we die in battle, together”
Monarch Varona downed the entire gla.s.s in one gulp, saying: “I just hope my death won't be too painful”
Gu Qing Shan took another sip, not saying anything.
Anna came over and knocked gla.s.ses with him.
“It's fine, I'll be by your side until the end” she softly declared.
Ye Fei Li stood up and opened the door.
Very quickly, he returned with an expression of fright.
“What? They're the machines and weapons from h.e.l.l, don't worry” Gu Qing Shan noticed his expression and said.
“No! I think you should see this” Ye Fei Li said, “a woman brought a lot of people, saying that she has something to give you”
“A woman?” Anna stood up before anyone else.
“Something to give me?” Gu Qing Shan was surprised.
“Hm, she said she originally wanted to have a match against you, but it seems like there's no chance for that anymore”
Gu Qing Shan's expression changed, rus.h.i.+ng to the door
Anna followed behind him.
The black dog followed after her.
Zhang Ying Hao also noticed Gu Qing Shan's expression and went out with him.
The President, Monarch Varona and finally Ye Fei Li.
Everyone went out to see what was going on.
Gu Qing Shan pushed the door open.
It was a stunningly beautiful woman holding a Blade in her hand.
The gorgeous female Asura.
With her in the lead, 7 powerful dead were standing outside in the empty yard.
Gu Qing Shan froze.
“Why are there so many people?” the President asked in a low voice.
“They are dead people” Gu Qing Shan answered.
“Why are there so many…” Zhang Ying Hao couldn't believe his eyes.
Behind the 7 leaders of h.e.l.l immeasurable numbers of dead stood, on the mountain, the meadow below, the road and even city further away, nothing but dead people in their vision.
They silently stood there, unmoving.
It was like they had covered the entire world.
It was now that Impartial G.o.ddess' voice came: [Sir, the planet is still currently growing bigger, but billions of dead people are also appearing out of nowhere]
Gu Qing Shan still couldn't regain his composure just yet.
The 7 leaders exchanged glances.
“I heard a war was coming” the human old man smiled.
“So -----we -----give -------last --------thoughts” the two giants spoke with their thunderous voices.
“They're only demons, without being able to revive, there's no need to fear” the male Asura scoffed.
“We're here to show the demons just what the villains of this world are capable of” the Fiendkind spoke.
“Demon meat is quite good, one last meal before leaving isn't a bad idea at all” Wolf King said.
The female Asura laughed and said: “We were thinking that we can't leave just like that”
“There's still a few free hours left”
Saying so, she stepped forward and knelt on one knee before Gu Qing Shan.
She raised something with both hands, offering it to Gu Qing Shan.
A jet black shaft and a horned skull on top, covered in a faint black mist.
It was the Devil King Warden Rod.
The female Asura had brought the Devil King Warden Rod to Gu Qing Shan.
“Why?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
The female Asura looked at Gu Qing Shan with a rare soft expression.
“Devil King, you've helped us all, h.e.l.l no longer tortures us, and we didn't want to reincarnate right away”
“When the time comes for you to reincarnate, if you don't enter the Samsara, your Merits will be deducted” Gu Qing Shan reminded her.
“It isn't time yet, not to mention since the apocalypse is eating at the Samsara worlds, we can use this to get a bit more Merit can't we?”
“Not only will be get more Merit, we can only have the Devil King owe us a favor, who doesn't want that?” the female Asura smiled.
Hearing that, Gu Qing Shan's serious expression loosened.
“Command us, Devil King!” Wolf King said.
“…You're no match for even a single Demon Lord, even I am no match for them” Gu Qing Shan said.
The female Asura insisted: “We won against the 7-colored spear -----we can't die, no matter how powerful a Demon Lord is, it's still not equal to the 7-colored spear, it can die”
Gu Qing Shan went silent.
He extended his hand and took the Devil King Warden Rod.
The female Asura stood up and backed down.
Holding the Devil King Warden Rod in hand, he faced all the dead.
Inhaling deeply, he then connected telepathically to all the dead.
「 Thank you all of you for helping the human realm… 」
Before he spoke another world, the planet echoed a unified chant.
“Long live the Devil King!”
“Long live the Devil King!”
“Long live the Devil King!”
The chant became louder and louder, until it became a roar that rocked the mountains and seas.
All the dead were cheering, greeting him.
They, were the reinforcements from Huang Quan.
