Garen nodded, satisfied, and walked up to the White Dragon, Gedd. He
grabbed a Space Ring that belonged to that Silver Helmet from the ground
in front of Gedd, and used the ring to keep away the five Soul Gems.
These things were called gems, but in truth they looked just like sweet
potatoes, dusty grey on the outside, but a lot harder. If it was not for
the fact that Garen could clearly feel how different the forces were, he
would not have known that these were the so-called Soul Gems.
“Five Soul Gems? That’s a pretty impressive deal. Looks like these
Priests have already imprisoned five heretic souls, each of them at least
Level Three.” The only function Soul Gems had was to imprison souls, a
gem without a soul inside was not called a Soul Gem. In other words,
these five Soul Gems each had a soul trapped inside.
These souls had had their memories wiped clean, until all that remained
were their most basic combat understanding and knowledge. These were
maintained in order to become materials for the creation of more Holy
Angels in the future.
On the other side, Gedd was crawling up, a hint of resentment and fury in
his eyes as he looked at Garen. Then he hurriedly lowered his head and
did not dare say anything else.
Garen’s power had reached Level Seven a long time ago, and Gedd had
heard before that, as the strongest prodigy in the clan, the Third Elder
had many hopes of Garen. Apparently, he might even sign an Eternal
Contract with King Gus. A being like this was not something Gedd could
“Alright, let’s go. We’ve been out for a tad too long,” Garen
The two White Dragons hastily packed up the treasures.
Garen turned around and glanced at Gerbera. His appearance looked just
like a normal young teenage Warrior. He had wounds and blood on his face
as a result of battle, and so he looked somewhat worse for the wear.
“Um, Your Majesty, this area is under the governance of the Black Fish
King, so if you wish to obtain more information about our fellows here,
you can contact him.”
“Black Fish King?” Garen was slightly stunned. “There are different
territories under different managers?”
“Yeah, we’ve secretly infiltrated many places, and there are
different beings in charge of managing each different place so that they
can report large amounts of data back at any time. The one in charge here
is the Black Fish King, and if he knew that there was a Demon Lord Level
here, he would be extremely happy,” Gerbera replied hurriedly.
“Alright, I’ll go meet him.” Garen nodded. “You get going, it’s
not safe here.”
Garen left Gerbera alone, and brought the two White Dragons back toward
the direction of the captain, flapping their wings and flying there. Soon
enough, they caught up to Captain Gamu, who was pretending to rest.
Garen glanced at Gedd behind him and gave him a look.
Looking depressed, Gedd handed a part of the treasures he had obtained to
the captain, passing it over to him quietly.
Gamu received it inconspicuously. The other White Dragons pretended not
to see it.
“Alright, let’s continue on. We need to finish patrolling the entire
border within a month, and then we’ll return to the clan as soon as we
complete our quest.”
All the White Dragons replied in their low voices.
“First, let’s find a supply point.”
The row of White Dragons flew into the sky again slowly, shooting away
into the distance.
They soon completed their patrol quest, though that was putting aside the
many dragons who also began to rob any creatures they met on the way,
having seen how Gedd and the others struck it rich.
Garen waited for the dragons to go their separate ways, heading back in
the direction of the clan. Along the way, he had found a location that
was closest to the Central Empire, and used Dream Communication to meet
the Black Fish King that Gerbera had mentioned.
In the limitless black ocean, there was no end in sight, the seawater
rising and falling.
The sky was completely dark, but there was actually a white fog floating
between the sky and the sea.
Garen stood on the seawater and saw precisely such a scene.
He had already reached the third grade of Dreamland and met the person in
charge of this area, Black Fish King, directly. It was the owner of this
pair of dead-fish eyes.
If they were in the real world, each of these eyes would be as big as a
house and unnaturally terrifying.
“A new comrade?” The Black Fish King spoke in the Void language, his
words reaching Garen.
“Black Fish King?” Garen asked.
“Are you here to ask me about the Thousand-Armed Giant?” The Black
Fish King seemed to have been asked about this a lot already. “Agare,
the Thousand-Armed Giant Agare. That was the name I heard from afar. He
bit off the statue on top of the Church of Fehra, it was a statue of
Fehra, so the Lord of Light and Fire lost his temper.”
He laughed, contemptuously and proudly.
“He deserves it. He actually oppressed me for a thousand years, and
this time, even his incarnation was injured.”
Wordlessly, Garen listened to the Black Fish King roar in laughter.
“Alright, I also want to know, has the Mother Stream taken any new
By ‘Mother Stream’, he meant the Mother Stream Alliance, an immense
faction that put aside their previous differences in order to survive,
thus achieving unprecedented unity.
“Actions? What actions would we need to take??” The Black Fish King
continued to laugh. “The Mother Stream is beginning to retaliate
instinctively, hahaha! Countless Void creatures and Ancient Endor beings
have already been released into this universe. Into the deep Abyss, the
Inferno, the Mortal World, the Heavenly World, and countless other
dimensions. We are just pushing the waves along from behind the scenes.”
“You don’t seem to be worried at all?” Garen frowned.
“Worried? The Underworld River of this world is no match for the Mother
Stream either. Be it the Will of the Abyss, or the many gods in the
Heavenly World, this war cannot be decided by any one party. What’s the
point of worrying?” The Black Fish King was completely unconcerned.
“Tell me, how many other Demon Lord Level existences are there around
here?” Garen continued to ask.
“How many?” The Black Fish King looked at him strangely.
“Most of the Lord Levels have gone to the Abyss, those’re the best
soul hunting grounds. In Blood Wars, the demons in the tower don’t care
if you come from another world or not. They just want to win the wars.
Nothing else matters!”
“Blood Wars, huh?” Garen was thoughtful.
“If you want to go, you can go through the Soaring Wing King, he’s a
Level Twelve Great Arcanist hiding in that Snow City near your side. If
you can’t find him there, you can go look for the Snake Princess in the
Green Oak Forest. She’ll give you a Blood War Stone for free, and all
you have to do is transmit your power into the Abyss. The demons there
will help you pay the transmission price needed for battle,” suggested
the Black Fish King. “On the precondition that you don’t mind dying
for nothing, of course.”
“I got it, many thanks.” Garen nodded. He knew about the location of
the Abyss’ Blood Wars. The place was called the Ten Thousand Abyss
Plains, and had a poisonous dark red sun scorching down on many
fortresses of steel. Even the greatest river of this world, the
Underworld River, flowed from there.
The Ten Thousand Abyss Plains were the highest level of the Abyss, and
had many bottomless abysses there. These abysses could reach each of the
different levels of the Abyss at any time.
The conversation ended just like that.
Garen bid farewell to the Black Fish King and the two of them exchanged
Dream Communication methods. To the Demon Lords, as long as they had a
marker, it would not be difficult for them to directly project
communication. It was the same principle as Nadia’s long-distance
projected attack back then.
By now, Garen could freely use his Confinement Essence in the Dream
World. Although his middle-level Demon Lord Soul Rings were weaker than
the Black Fish King’s, his understanding of this Essence made up for
the difference in ability. Even if he could not defeat the Black Fish
King, he would not be confined and trapped in the latter’s Dream World.
That was why, in truth, he was not very afraid of upper-level Demon Lords
either. If it were not for the fact that the restrictions in this world
were too strong, and the pure power of his soul had been weakened too
much to the point that it could not leave his physical body and could
only affect it, he would have already returned to the peak of his powers
from the previous life by now.
He did not encounter any more accidents after the patrol quest. After
flying eventlessly in the sky for a few days, Garen returned safely to
the clan. Where he continued to train.
Every year, he went to Ann and underwent the experiment.
Just like Ann said, not only did her experiments not weaken him, they
even vaguely strengthened him.
Garen would also occasionally go out for a stroll. After understanding
that there were fellow Demon Lords scattered around managing different
territories, he visited the Snake Princess Demon Lord in Green Oak Forest
and the Soaring Wing King nearby, in another direction.
Snake Princess was a small silver snake as long as an arm, and she looked
very weak, but she belied extremely terrifying power. She was definitely
Level Ten or higher.
On the other hand, the Soaring Wing King was slightly weaker. He only had
a Level Nine physical body, but he actually held in his hand a
Semi-Divine Weapon that directly increased his power to an unfathomable
Garen created a communication channel with the Back Fish King and these
other two, allowing them to exchange intel.
Garen’s advantage in intel was in the Deladia Empire. King Gus was a
Level Fifteen peak existence, and there were plenty of powerhouses within
the Empire. There were eighteen whole beings who were Level Ten and
above, so they dominated this area, keeping all the other powers here
And the Black Fish King was a powerful noble inside the Central Empire,
so he had an advantage in gathering intel about the Church of Fehra.
The area around here was almost completely taken by Mother Nature’s and
Fehra’s churches, so naturally, any intelligence about these two Major
Gods was extremely valuable.
Meanwhile, the Soaring Wing King was a Great Arcanist, acting as a member
of the Snow City’s Arcane Organization Grey Shadow Parliament. It was
independent and stood against the Deladia Empire. However, he asked Garen
for information more often than the other way around. His intelligence
channels seemed to more obstructed than the others.
Snake Princess was a Great Druid who believed in Mother Nature, and she
also had the most variety of random resources and materials. She seemed
to have many connections, and could obtain all sorts of materials.
The Black Fish King and the Soaring Wing King also bought materials from
her quite often, and now there was Garen as well.
They called Garen the White Dragon King. Although this was the title of
the White Dragon Mountain’s Dragon King, no one cared.
As time passed, the situation grew more chaotic.
More and more Interdimensional Passages opened up mysteriously, and there
was clearly an instability in space. A space-time crevice even opened up
near the White Dragon Clan, swallowing up two Adult White Dragons that
had gone out hunting and scaring the Third Elder into hurriedly sending
his elites to draw out boundaries in case any other dragons wandered in.
A few more years passed in the blink of an eye.
Garen gathered two hundred more Potential Points. Add that to the two
hundred from before, and he had four hundred now. He had always resisted
from using them for fear of growing too overpowered and attracting the
attention of the gods.
And he finally received news from King Gus, who signed an Eternal
Contract with a princess from the Red Dragon Clan.
Only then did Garen heave a sigh of relief. He had it all planned out, if
he were to be chosen as a contractor, he would go straight to the Abyss
for the Blood Wars.
Right now, there were no outside eyes paying particular attention to him,
so he finally started to secretly use all the Potential Points on his own
But he did not add them evenly. Instead…
