Volume 1 –
Chapter 735 – Demon Heart Seed
Time gradually lapsed in the Demonic Lightning Abyss that was filled with raging roars of thunder.
The raging roars of thunder didn’t seem to have stopped in the Demonic Lightning Abyss. There were a thousand figures sitting in the sky with black pythons of lightning shuttling back and forth.
Those silhouettes were like boulders that did not move in the slightest as they allowed the Demonic Earth Lightning to strike on their bodies.
They formed similar seals with their hands as the strands of black lightning quietly entered their bodies through their pores, refining their flesh and bones.
A few thousand meters away from them, Mu Chen was also sitting in the sky. However, his eyes were shut as he stretched his hand out. The broken stone tablet that was in a much smaller size was quietly standing in his palm.
His eyelashes occasionally moved as he slowly opened his shut eyes. He was a little dazed as he stared at the stone tablet in his hand. His eyes were filled with astonishment.
In this period of time, while he was helping the Nine Nether Troop refine their bodies, he devoted the remaining time to the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture that was recorded in the broken stone tablet.
After several days of comprehension, he already had some initial understanding for the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture. Just as Nine Nether had said, the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture recorded on the stone tablet wasn’t complete.
In addition, the Demon Heart State that Nine Nether had spoken of was indeed present. But the Demon Heart State was separated into three realms: the Lesser Demon Heart State, Greater Demon Heart State and the Perfection Demon Heart State.
According to what Nine Nether had said, that terrifying Palace Master of the Lightning God Palace had cultivated the Demon Heart State on the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture to the Perfection Realm. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to confront genuine Heavenly Sovereigns with his cultivation of Quasi-Heavenly Sovereign Realm.
But right now, the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture was damaged, so even if Mu Chen managed to cultivate it to the limit, he could only reach the realm of Greater Demon Heart State. If he wanted to achieve the realm of perfection on the Demon Heart State, he would require the complete version of the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture.
But with Mu Chen’s current strength, even if he was given the completed version of the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture, it wouldn’t be possible for him to successfully cultivate it. So he did not feel pity for it.
Because just these two realms would make him clench his teeth and bitterly cultivate.
“What a perverted Divine Ability…”
Mu Chen was reflecting on the primitive information in his mind. In the end, he couldn’t control letting out a long sigh as his facial expression became a little weird. Because according to what he had comprehended, he knew what an abnormal temper he would have to go through in order to cultivate the Demon Heart State.
If he wanted to cultivate the Demon Heart State, he would have to first form a Demon Heart Seed. This Demon Heart Seed would require him to strike his own heart with the Nether Demon Heart Lightning numerous times and allow the power of the Nether Demon Heart Lightning into his heart. In the end, forming it bit by bit until he had successfully formed the Demon Heart Seed.
In the eyes of many, this method of training was simply courting death. No matter how a person trained, the heart was the weakest part of a human body. The slightest injury would result in a grave injury, or even fatal. So who would dare to easily use such a powerful thing like the Nether Demon Heart Lightning to strike their own heart?
The slightest mistake, even the heart would burst with a single sound of the thunderous roar.
Even if others had gotten this Supreme Demon Heart Scripture, they would probably not dare to cultivate it so easily, given its training method.
Mu Chen held onto the stone tablet and couldn’t help smacking his lips. A smear of hesitation flashed in his eyes, but it only lasted for an instant before it was smashed apart with unwavering determination.
He had promised that girl that he would become a supreme expert, and there were too many geniuses in the world. So he knew that he would never achieve that step if he solely depended on the so-called “talent”.
A genuine expert would naturally be fearless.
So he shouldn’t be afraid of anything!
A brilliant smile rose in Mu Chen’s handsome face. His eyes abruptly grew sharp as he closed his eyes, bit by bit. As he willed it with his mind, the Spiritual Energy that was fused with the Nether Demon Heart Lightning started to revolve. Finally, it turned into a stream as it burst out and swiftly slammed against the location of his heart.
A sharp thunderous roar that was similar to a ghostly howl abruptly spread out in his heart. The thunderous roar resounded within Mu Chen’s body and directly caused his five viscera and six organs to shake, even the flow of his blood was obstructed.
A mouthful of blood spat out from Mu Chen’s mouth and his face was pale at this instant. Veins climbed on his face, making him look weird. He deeply panted for two breaths with his hand held onto his chest as he endured the heart-piercing pain.
The thunderous roar seemed like it wanted to tear his heart apart.
“Damnable thing.” The intense pain made Mu Chen uncontrollably curse out. No wonder there was a “demon” word in the Supreme Demon Heart Scripture, it was indeed filled with evil. This was the first time that he had encountered such a self-harming way of cultivating.
He gasped for breath for a long time, before his body gradually calmed down. He, once again, clenched his teeth and controlled the Nether Demon Heart Lightning to strike his heart again.
In the dark Demonic Lightning Abyss, the young man’s silhouette was constantly spitting out blood, but he seemed to be enjoying it. This bizarre scene made those Nine Nether Troop warriors that accidentally cast their glance over to be dumbfounded. However, they did not dare to speak a word and immediately shut their eyes and continued training.
Nearly half a months’ worth of time swiftly passed from the roaring of thunder and mouthfuls of fresh blood being spat out.
Without them knowing, a month had already passed since Mu Chen and the Nine Nether Troop had been training in the Demonic Lightning Abyss. In this months’ time, the Expedition War launched by the Great Havenlaw Domain had also gotten more intense.
The Great Havenlaw domain was, after all, a peak force in the Greatlaw Continent, so it was natural for them to be stronger than the Hundred Battles Domain. Therefore, when the war started, the Hundred Battles Domain had been defeated, bit by bit, as expected. Although they would occasionally launch counterattacks, it wasn’t enough to affect the general situation.
However, the Hundred Battles Domain wasn’t a weakling. As they constantly retreated from defeat, the power gathered together got stronger as well. Thus, gradually slowing down the advancing speed of the Great Havenlaw Domain. Thus, they could not crush the Hundred Battles Domain as they had at the beginning of the war.
Facing this situation, the Great Havenlaw Domain also started to gather their strength and no longer operated separately. Because the upper hierarchy of the Great Havenlaw Domain understood it well that the cores of the Hundred Battle Domain were the Myriad Swords Valley, Demonic Corpse Sect and the Great Compassion Sky.
Ever since the war began, the three forces that were the strongest in the Hundred Battles Domain had not taken any action. Only by defeating them, would the Hundred Battles Domain be truly defeated.
Therefore, the Great Havenlaw Domain also started to gather their forces in preparation to defeat those three powerful forces and end the war, spreading the fame of the Great Havenlaw Domain far and wide.
Facing the full-force invasion of the Great Havenlaw Domain, the Myriad Swords Valley, Demonic Corpse Sect and Great Compassion Sky were also gathering their strength in preparation for the decisive battle with the Great Havenlaw Domain.
There were also countless gazes directed over in the Northern Region. After all, both the Great Havenlaw Domain and Hundred Battles Domain were considered heavyweights in the Northern Region. So the result of this battle would have a considerable impact on the Northern Region.
Therefore, before the decisive battle began, it had already caused a commotion and attracted numerous gazes over.
The outside world was in an uproar from the decisive battle, but Mu Chen still sat quietly in the Demonic Lightning Abyss. Occasionally, his body would slightly tremble and there would be a distorted expression on his handsome face.
This was because of the Nether Demon Heart Lightning striking against his heart.
But right now, his situation was clearly much better than before, when he was spitting out mouthfuls of blood. It seemed like he had gradually gotten used to it.
The trembling on Mu Chen’s body lasted a long while before he slowly opened his tightly shut eyes. He lightly breathed out a mouthful of air as he wearily rubbed his forehead.
He could be considered to have suffered in this period of time.
This damnable Supreme Demon Heart Scripture truly wasn’t something that was meant for humans.
But, fortunately, there were some results from all the bitter sufferings. Although he had yet to form the Demon Heart Seed, he could sense that there was energy belonging to the Nether Demon Heart Lightning gathered in his heart. As long as he continued training in this way, he should be able to form the Demon Heart Seed.
Mu Chen gently patted his chest and raised his head, looking at the Nine Nether Troop that wasn’t far from him. He raised his brows instantly as he realised that there were lightning runes faintly visible on the chests of every single warrior of the Nine Nether Troop.
Some had more and some had less lightning runes. As for Qin Shan’s party, whom were the strongest among the Nine Nether Troop, there was signs of the fourth lightning rune forming. That speed was rather fast.
But Mu Chen was also clear that the speed of Qiu Shan’s party in training in the Lightning God’s Physique would start to drop, since there were still some other ways for them to reach the Ennea Rune Lightning Physique.
But it was sufficient right now.
Mu Chen stood up and waved his hand. The Demonic Earth Lightning that was striking the Nine Nether Troop instantly fled as they escaped into the stone walls.
The Nine Nether Troop had also opened their eyes one by one with black lightning flickering in their eyes.
“Congratulations.” Mu Chen lightly smiled, “You guys have already successfully cultivated the Lightning God’s Physique.”
Every single one of the Nine Nether Troop instantly stood up as they kneeled before Mu Chen on a single knee. An orderly voice that even halted the roaring of thunder for an instant in the Demonic Lightning Abyss.
“We thank the Commander!”
Mu Chen waved his hand and he could feel the changes in the vigor of the Nine Nether Troop as a whole. He was also pleased in his heart as his efforts weren’t in vain.
“It’s time for us to go out.” Mu Chen muttered with his head raised up.
Just when Mu Chen’s muttering dropped, Nine Nether’s voice abruptly resounded in their ears.
“Prepare to move out, the final battle between the Great Havenlaw Domain and Hundred Battles Domain will soon begin.”
