Divine Light and Doubts
Although the island wasnâ€™t destroyed by a nuclear explosion like so
many of them had expected, the cruise ship Louis XVI had left the harbor
When Yang Chen and the rest followed Fodessa to the harbor, along with
the few special forces soldiers and officials left on the island, they
realized that they were left in this situation.
â€œHmph, what a bunch of cowards. Nothing happened at all, so why did
they run away so fast?â€ Lilith was supporting her father as she pouted
her lips, fuming.
Sargeras giggled. â€œHis Majesty Pluto scared them off so that as few
people as possible know about the identities of Apollo and Artemis.â€
Yang Chen looked back and smiled. â€œIn this world of humans, itâ€™s
better off for both parties to have each others identities remain
secret.â€ He turned to Fodessa. â€œDeputy Director Fodessa, Iâ€™m still
able to cross the sea even if thereâ€™s no ship, but my friends here
cannot. You must have a reserved ship, donâ€™t you?â€
Fodessa nodded straightaway. â€œThatâ€™s right, we have a backup cargo
ship, Yangâ€”ermâ€¦ Your Majesty Pluto. Please wait a moment, Iâ€™ll
pilot it myself right now.â€
To Fodessa, Yang Chen was a great benefactor, for without him Fodessaâ€™s
family would have been done for, and the whole of France wouldâ€™ve
slipped into that traitor Depneyâ€™s hands!
Even if Yang Chen didnâ€™t do these things for him or his country, it
still didnâ€™t affect Fodessaâ€™s gratitude.
While Fodessa was off to get the ship, Sauron brought forward the black
box containing the Sword of Thanatos. â€œYour Majesty Pluto, what should
we do with this sword?â€
Yang Chen gave it a complicated glance. He had initially thought that he
could use this sword as bait for the mysterious person, but there
wasnâ€™t even a damn shadow. He waved his hand. â€œHold on to it, and
after you get back to Paris, let the Sea Eagles take it to the Forgotten
Realms and give it to Ron for safekeeping. But itâ€™s just an ordinary
divine weaponâ€”an ordinary person wouldnâ€™t have much use for it. I
donâ€™t have much use for it.â€
Sauron was stunned. â€œYour Majesty, you wonâ€™t go back yourself for a
Yang Chen laughed softly, and said regretfully, â€œI wonâ€™t be back this
time. After all Iâ€™m here with my wife for the fashion week, and after
that I have to head back to Chinaâ€”thereâ€™s no time for delays. Plusâ€¦
thereâ€™s a lot going on in China at the moment, so itâ€™s not a good
time to leave for too long.â€
The master of the Tang clan was sick, his own headache required
inspection and treatment, Cai Yan wanted him to bring her back to
Beijing, and the Dragon Group Recruit was nearing the end of their
And Guo Xuehua, Wang Ma and the rest of the family were waiting for their
return. Yang Chen didnâ€™t think that under these circumstances, visiting
old friends was a good option.
The smiles of Sauron and the rest faded away, but they respected Yang
After more than ten minutes, Fodessa had piloted a cargo ship himself to
pick up the people at the harbor, and they headed to where the warship
As they reached the area where the sea was still frozen over for hundreds
of meters, they felt chilled to the bone.
The pure white frost was like a giant Northern ice floe which had floated
The scene on the monitor was already shocking enough. Now, seeing it with
their own eyes, they didnâ€™t dare to think of how this field of deadly
ice was cast!
â€œAll of you may stay. Iâ€™ll finish up there and return quickly.â€
Yang Chen knew that most of them on the boat wouldnâ€™t be able to take
the temperature there, so he leaped from the deck alone and landed on the
surface of the sea.
They watched Yang Chen bobbing along with the sea as if it was flat
ground, and soon he was out of sight.
Yang Chen appeared on the warship which was more like an iceship now,
landing in front of Stern and Alice.
The incestuous siblings were cuddling each other. The surrounding cold
was naturally harmless to them, and Lin Ruoxi, Harry and his mother were
still lying under the shield.
As for Depney who was frozen still in iceâ€”he still maintained his
Yang Chen circled Depney a few times, as if observing closely something.
â€œHades, I donâ€™t get it. Whatâ€™s there to investigate about this old
man? You made us wait for so long.â€ Stern twitched his mouth.
Yang Chen gave him a sidewards glance. â€œArenâ€™t you curious? Even if
the bow he was using was a defective divine weapon, itâ€™s a divine
weapon nonetheless. Any human expert, even if theyâ€™re the worldâ€™s
best special agent, wonâ€™t be able to truly bring out the power of a
divine weapon. But Depney was able to regardless.
â€œWith that bow, he ended three military bases unexpectedly. Although
thereâ€™s a chance it was just his bravado, he undoubtedly has the
capability to handle this common divine weapon.â€
The Cromwell siblings frowned. Although they too found it strange, they
had never thought why.
Yang Chen stopped his pacing and stood before Depney. â€œLook carefully.
Even though heâ€™s frozen in ice dozens of degrees below zero, his blood
is still flowing. This itself is already beyond the limits of human
With that, Yang Chen placed a hand on the ice and interjected a stream of
After a series of clear echoes, the ice around Depney was shattered into
pieces on the floor!
Indeed, as Yang Chen had said, Depney didnâ€™t remain rigid after the ice
shattered, but fell back on his butt as he panted, his body covered in
â€œHmm, this could mean that this idiot might have a bodily constitution
beyond hthat of regular people.â€ Alice knew best how cold her ice
wasâ€”it couldnâ€™t possibly be endured by humans.
Yang Chen smiled nastily, and squatted while looking at Depney. â€œTell
us your true origins. You canâ€™t just be an idiot impersonating Apollo.
How your body became like this, how you knew of the gods, how you
obtained the two divine weaponsâ€”tell us, so that you will die with some
Yang Chenâ€™s meaning was clear: no matter what, he must die! The only
difference was whether it would be in comfort or pain.
Depneyâ€™s eyes were full of unresigned resentment. He picked up the
detonator and was about to press the button, before suddenly realizing
that it would be pointless to do so, for there was no one left of the
Depney hurled the detonator in uncontrollable rage, smashing it to bits!
Yang Chen was in no rush. Looking at Depney panting with his lowered
head, Yang Chen was assured.
After a long while, Depney said hoarsely, â€œItâ€™sâ€¦ the divine
Yang Chenâ€™s mind gave a sudden surge. He had never thought that this
would be the reason!
â€œDivine light? You were shone on by the divine light?â€ Yang Chen
couldnâ€™t help but be excited!
Depney sneered. â€œWhat, you donâ€™t believe me?â€
Yang Chen pondered for a moment. â€œKeep talking. Iâ€™ll decide.â€
â€œOver thirty years ago, I was captured along with other youths of the
same age to an underground research base in Madagascar to be used as test
subjects. Iâ€™m am sure you are well aware of the organization and their
experiments,â€ Depney said.
â€œZeroâ€¦â€ Of course Yang Chen knewâ€”he had been one of their test
It was Zero who used the Godâ€™s Stone to change his body, and because of
that he was capable of becoming a god. It was also the cause of the
tragedies of past years.
Back then, Yang Chen had personally destroyed Zero partly because of his
resentment towards all they had done to him.
And he had only reestablished the new Zero to stabilize the assassinsâ€™
systemization, and there were no more experiments on test subjects.
Depney continued, â€œActually, I was a failed experiment, and I thought
that I was deadâ€¦ Those mad scientists thought I was dead too. I donâ€™t
know if it was because of their slip-up, or some problem had arisen in
some part of the experiment. Perhaps when they made preparations for my
exposure to the divine light, there was some deviation in the marginsâ€¦
In the end, I climbed up from the pile of corpsesâ€¦â€
Depneyâ€™s story was actually very simple.
When he was young, he was exposed to the ray of divine light just like
Yang Chen, only some abnormality had occurred. Although he didnâ€™t have
the Endless Resolve Restoration Scripture as a secret survival tool like
Yang Chen, he lived.
Although the experiment was incomplete, the new Depney found out that his
body was much, much stronger than normal humans.
His heart was initially full of hostility, and he wanted to return to the
base to seek revenge. Yet when he had successfully risen to the rank of
Director of the French Security Bureau, he received news that Zero had
With complicated emotions, he returned again to the base of Zero, which
had been destroyed by Yang Chen, to ascertain the truth for himself.
But unexpectedly, he stumbled upon a hidden chamber exposed by its recent
In the chamber, he found various documents on the gods, as well as the
longbow and the Sword of Thanatos!
What happened next was just as Yang Chen had deduced. After getting the
weapons, Depneyâ€™s ambition grew, and he secretly established the Realm
of Gods and took the name of a god. He took a desperate risk with the
intention of controlling the European Union and other international
Depney was worried about being thwarted by the gods, but his own
interests had taken over him. Plus the divine weapons were with him, and
his confidence grew especially after the successful demolition of the
first military base. After that, he stopped worrying about other things.
After listening to Depney, Yang Chenâ€™s brows were tight. He didnâ€™t
doubt the veracity of Depneyâ€™s story.
The words of a dying man were always sincere.
It was just that, now that there was someone like Depney, would there be
others like him in the world who had lived through the divine light?
It was impossible that there would be many skills like the Endless
Resolve Restoration Scripture, but it couldnâ€™t be the only one in the
world either. If there were others who had ways of surviving, or lived
through the divine light by luck, wouldnâ€™t they also have strength
Depney was merely shone on by divine light and wasnâ€™t a complete
success, yet he could already use divine weapons. It was evident that the
power of the Godâ€™s Stone was that strong.
Yang Chen was even beginning to faintly suspect,Is the mysterious person
who seized the Godâ€™s Stone and the Holy Grail someone who was exposed
to the divine light like myself?! And may not be an actual god?!
As he pondered these matters, Yang Chen turned to look at Stern and Alice.
Stern understood Yang Chenâ€™s questioning look, and shrugged.
â€œThereâ€™s no point asking us. The function of the Godâ€™s Stone is
still a mystery to us. Otherwise the first Hades wouldnâ€™t have carried
out so many experiments.â€
Yang Chen turned and gave Depney a smile. â€œThank you. Iâ€™ll send you
on your way now.â€
â€œYouâ€¦ canâ€™t you just spare me?â€ Depney begged pitifully.
Yang Chen didnâ€™t waste his breath. He raised his hand, and a palm
filled with True Qi came smashing down!
Even if Depney had been shone upon by the divine light and had an
exceptional constitution, he was only a flesh-and-blood body in the end,
so how could he withstand the blow?
In a flash, Yang Chen was looking down at a headless corpse, and he shook
the stain off his hand. To be frank he didnâ€™t feel much, because his
doubts had only increased after the questioning.
But just as he was in this puzzled mood, Yang Chen turned around and
discovered something â€کominousâ€™â€”
Lin Ruoxi has awakened?!
