The Twilight Spear’s glow disappeared, and there was a long crack on the earthen-yellow spear.

“Big brother!”

Cai’Er stopped singing and cried out in worry as she hurriedly flew towards Ling Chen. A look of fury flashed in Xiao Hui’s eyes, and he stood in front of Ling Chen, using his little body to protect Ling Chen, who was unable to stand up. Xi Ling also furiously cried out as she shot a [Phoenix Arrow], which gave off scorching heatwaves, towards the War God.

Feeling the flames of the 9 suns burning on his body, the War God lifted his jet-black sword and unleashed an [Extreme Boundless Desolation]. The destructive radius of 30 metres was extended by the golden sword light to 60 metres, and the golden arc contained a destructive power that could cause the heavens and earth to dim. It sliced through Xi Ling and Cai’Er, and it covered Xiao Hui below. However, it barely passed by Ling Chen.

-958,000, -2,156,912, -2,126,980.

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has suffered fatal damage. The skill [Holy Spirit’s Shield] has been activated, and his HP has remained at 1 HP.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui’s skill [Holy Spirit’s Sacrifice] has been activated, and he has died in place of Xi Ling and Cai’Er.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has died.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui’s skill [Holy Spirit’s Shield] has been activated, and he has revived on the spot with full HP.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has used the maximum number of [Holy Spirit Sacrifice] in one day, and he will not be able to activate it for the remainder of the day.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has used the maximum number of [Holy Spirit’s Shield]’s revivals in one day, and he will not be able to activate it for the remainder of the day.”

The slew of system notifications caused the semi-dazed Ling Chen to feel greatly shocked. He suddenly raised his head as he yelled, “Xiao Hui, Cai’Er, Xi Ling… return immediately!”

As Ling Chen yelled, he quickly gave the command to bring all pets except Leng’Er and Snow Cherry back to the Pet Space. However, the instant he gave the command, all of his pets were enveloped by a terrifying and irresistible power, making it so that Xiao Hui and the others could not return. The War God raised his jet-black sword high in the air as a berserk wave of energy gathered around his body, turning into a jet-black tornado that swept towards his surroundings…

“Stop!!!”

Ling Chen could immediately tell that this was one of the War God’s most powerful skills: [Extreme Eight Direction Annihilation]!

However, how could his shout stop the extreme form of the [Eight Direction Annihilation]?

The indescribably terrifying tornado of energy swept throughout the entire Fire Purgatory. Xiao Hui, Leng’Er, Xi Ling, Cai’Er, Snow Cherry, and Ling Chen were all caught within it…

Xi Ling sorrowfully cried out, and Cai’Er cried out ‘big brother’ before they were swept into the tornado of destruction formed by the war God’s power…

-3,668,000,-8,456,912,-8,526,890,-8,463,000…

The tornado of energy veiled Ling Chen’s sight, and he felt as if there were tens of thousands of blades cutting his body. In his ears, a certain system notification made him feel as if his eyes were going to burst out of anger…

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has suffered fatal damage. The skill [Holy Spirit’s Shield] has been activated, and his HP has remained at 1 HP.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has been afflicted with a [Slash] status, and he will continuously lose HP.”

“Ding… your pet Xiao Hui has died, and he has fallen to LV59. Xiao Hui cannot be summoned within 3 hours.”

“Ding… your pet Xi Ling has died, and she has revived with the Nine Suns Rebirth but cannot be summoned within 1 hour.”

“Ding… your pet Cai’Er has died, and she has fallen to LV56. Cai’Er cannot be summoned within 3 hours.”

“Ding…”

Finally, the sound of a second [Ice Soul Heart-Protector Pearl] shattering sounded out.

If it wasn’t for the [Ice Soul Heart-Protector Pearls] that Xiao Hui had refined from the Ice Soul Undead Wolf, Ling Chen would have died twice already.

The War God’s berserk tornado of energy finally dissipated as Xiao Hui vanished within a glow of grey light, Xi Ling vanished within a glow of crimson light, and Cai’Er vanished within a glow of green light, returning to the Pet Space. After pets died, not only did their levels fall by 1, but they also needed to sleep for 3 hours, during which they could not be summoned. Only Snow Cherry, who was invincible while in mount form, and Leng’Er, who was immune to physical attacks, were remaining by his side.

“You’re still alive? How’s that possible?”

The War God remained where he stood as if nothing had happened. His peaceful body was like a tall mountain, the peak of which could not be seen. Although Ling Chen hadn’t died after repeatedly taking fatal blows, to the War God, Ling Chen was just using life-saving items to extend his pitiful struggling. It could temporarily extend his life, but it would not save him from his fate of dying at the War God’s hands.

“You… You!!!!!!”

Ling Chen slowly stood up. In his extreme rage, his mind buzzed, and he almost broke his teeth from gnashing them too hard. His knuckles whitened as bone-piercing ruthlessness and hatred appeared within his eyes… Xiao Hui had joined him first followed by Xi Ling, and now he had 5 pets in total. From when he entered the virtual world until now, they had gone through countless dangers and miraculous encounters together, but they had overcome the dangers every time. No matter if it was his pets or himself, none of them had truly died before. Today was the first time they had died…

After pets die their levels would fall, but they would only fall asleep instead of truly dying. After 3 hours, they would be able to be summoned again…

However, this was completely unacceptable to Ling Chen. Completely and utterly unacceptable!!

After Shui Ruo had left, he had promised himself that he would protect everyone important to him and not allow what happened that night to repeat itself. Today, because he was not strong enough, his pets had died one by one in front of him… if it was Tian Tian or Dia Wu… he simply couldn’t accept this sort of thing.

Pain, anger, hatred, and guilt towards himself for not being able to protect them, erupted within Ling Chen… these emotions clouded Ling Chen’s mind, and he gripped the Chilling Star and moderately-destroyed Twilight Spear as he roared, “I’ll kill you!!!”

Ling Chen did not activate Broken Shadow or Burning Shadow nor did he use Soul Sacrifice or War God’s Fury. Ling Chen rushed up without using any tricks, his gaze so furious that it threatened to rip the War God’s body apart. The War God calmly glanced at him as the jet-black sword lightly pierced out, completely ignoring Ling Chen’s attack. Just as the tip of the sword touched Ling Chen’s chest, the Evil God’s Mask roared as it once again reflected the damage at the War God. However, the powerful force still travelled into Ling Chen’s body. Despite this, Ling Chen’s body only slightly tilted back, his terrifying willpower preventing his body from stumbling backwards. He loudly roared and he threw his left arm forwards, stabbing the Twilight Spear into his arm as a colourless glow spread out from it.

Soul Demise!

-1,152,000,000!

The pain from having his HP reduced by one third as well as the gigantic damage figure above his head caused him to reveal the most emotion he had shown all day. However, those emotions only lasted for an instant before he mercilessly counterattacked at Ling Chen.

Clang!!

This attack did not hit Ling Chen. Instead, it was once again parried by the Twilight Spear and Chilling Star… if the first parry was lucky, then this one was simply miraculous. However, even though he had successfully parried the War God’s attack, that did not mean Ling Chen was fine. This time, as an ear-piercing collision sounded out, Ling Chen flew backwards like a broken kite, and the Twilight Spear and Chilling Star fell from his hands, landing in different places.

A hint of praise appeared within the War God’s eyes upon being repeatedly parried. Even so, he wouldn’t show any mercy. The jet-black sword once again lit up with the golden sword light. As the golden light shot towards Ling Chen, an ear-piercing sound from the air being torn apart sounded out. Wherever the sword light passed, the space around it would twist and turn.

This was the War God’s ultimate skill: [Heaven-Splitting Dragon-Slaying Art]!

Chi!!

Ling Chen, who was in mid-air, was pierced by the golden sword light as yet another shattering sound came from his chest. The final [Ice Soul Heart-Protector Pearl] had been destroyed.

Bang!!

-6,980.

Ling Chen’s body heavily smashed onto the boundary of the Fire Purgatory, and the might of the impact caused the entire Fire Purgatory to slightly tremble.

“Master…” Leng’Er softly called out to Ling Chen while floating over to him, tightly holding onto her doll in her embrace. Her dark eyes were filled with worry, and the pain in her heart exceeded what she would feel if she lost her doll. However, she couldn’t help Ling Chen. Compared to Xiao Hui, Xi Ling, Cai’Er, and Snow Cherry, no matter if they were her stats or abilities, they were far too weak. Their relationship had never been one of master and pet, and Ling Chen had never treated her like a pet like he treated Xiao Hui. Instead, he cared for her like he would a daughter: giving her gifts, telling her stories, doing all he could to make her happy…

This time, Ling Chen had half lost consciousness after hitting the boundary. After falling to the ground, he raised his head, using the wall behind him to support himself as he slowly stood. He stared at the War God with a piercing gaze as Snow Cherry quickly flew over, supporting his body.

Ding, Clang.

The Chilling Star and Twilight Spear fell to the ground at the same time. The Chilling Star fell next to his feet, while the Twilight Spear fell next to the War God’s feet. The instant it landed, it… broke into two halves. The Heaven’s End grade light flickered out and disappeared, and the spear returned to its dim earthen-yellow colour.

“Ding… your weapon [Twilight Spear] has been completely destroyed, and it cannot be repaired.”

Before he knew it, the War God was standing 10 steps away from him and staring at him like he was looking at a corpse. He didn’t look surprised that Ling Chen had yet again avoided death.

“You don’t have any chance of defeating me. No matter how you struggle, all there is for you is death,” the War God expressionlessly said. He treated this as the last sentence he would say to Ling Chen because everything was about to end.

“Hahahaha…” Ling Chen put his hand against Snow Cherry and did his best to straighten his body. There was no fear in his eyes, and he instead smirked and laughed in a terrifying and sinister manner. He stretched out his hand and pointed at the War God’s face as he said while coldly laughing, “War God, even though I knew from the start that I had to kill you to pass through here, I never truly wanted to kill you… because my battle power came from you, and I received a great favour from you. In fact, you could even say that you’re my master. If I kill you, you’ll die permanently, and you won’t even exist as an Undead anymore! I’m unable to do such an ungrateful act. As such, even though I had the power to kill you, I was reluctant to do so.”

“However…” the cold smile on Ling Chen’s face vanished as a demonic and eerie look replaced it. “You dared to kill Xiao Hui, Xi Ling, and Cai’Er… this is unforgivable!!”

“Even if you’re half a master to me, even if you were Xiao Feng Chen’s good friend back then, and even if you’re the War God… that was my bottom line… so you must pay the price for it… today I’ll definitely kill you!!!”
