Birth of the D.S. - Chapter 1674: Procedure
Noah took a lump of the Devils’ dark-red energy from King Elbas’ inscribed item. He had relied on those golden materials to contain the chaotic laws until now, but his many experiments had eventually made them lose power.
He had been away from his friends for too long. Noah wanted to rejoin them, but the situation didn’t allow him to do that just yet. He had a project to complete first.
‘I always end up doing risky stuff,’ Noah sighed while unraveling the golden inscribed item.
Noah didn’t feel completely reckless. Heaven and Earth were giving him no chance. He had to finish the project, or he would forever live in fear of their potential punishments.
His ambition had always failed to give a purpose to the chaotic laws, but Noah wanted to try a new approach now. He wouldn’t use his existence to modify that power. He wanted to create a connection with the other world’s will and see if he could work from there.
A dark-red glow soon shone on his face. Noah saw King Elbas’ inscribed item falling apart and transforming into various materials as the chaotic laws began to affect its structure. Even his training area experienced mutations, but the dark matter managed to shield him.
A lump of mental waves left Noah’s mind and enveloped the dark-red energy. His thoughts transformed as the chaotic laws generated mutations, but a faint presence also appeared in his consciousness.
Noah had already felt that presence before. It was there whenever the chaotic laws tried to mess with his existence. The other world’s will filled that power and forced every material to escape Heaven and Earth’s system.
The other world’s will was a mass of raging thoughts. They weren’t violent, but they carried its deep hatred toward the laws belonging to Heaven and Earth.
‘Show me something,’ Noah whispered in his mind as the black hole replaced the dark matter that had begun to fall prey to the mutations. ‘I hope you aren’t only anger and fury.’
Noah didn’t know how to interact with the other world’s will. He didn’t know if words would work, but he had nothing else to offer at the moment.
The will didn’t react to his thoughts. It continued to give the chaotic laws its purpose without minding Noah’s intentions. It didn’t even seem aware that Noah had kept it inside an inscribed item for a long time.
‘What can I say to make you talk?’ Noah asked. ‘I hope you aren’t only anger. Work with me. We have the same enemies.’
His words failed to reach the will’s ears again. The chaotic laws continued to generate mutations without considering Noah.
‘Don’t you want to fight Heaven and Earth?’ Noah asked through his mind. ‘I can help. Your power of change can turn me into one of their worst enemies.’
Something seemed to change after Noah mentioned Heaven and Earth. It wasn’t anything massive, but the will slowly started to move in the direction of Noah’s mind.
Mutations followed that event. The air between Noah and the lump of dark-red energy transformed while the other world’s will tried to reach his mind.
Noah gritted his teeth before allowing a small part of that power inside his mind. An immense pressure immediately landed on his mental walls, but he endured the pain to translate the will.
Trails of dark matter left his mind before they could completely mutate. The black hole was keeping Noah’s condition in check and would always provide new higher energy to replace what the chaotic laws managed to taint.
A few confused images appeared in Noah’s vision as his mind went over the small piece of will. He could sense an immense rage flowing through his thoughts and trying to take control of his mental waves, but some stunning scenes slowly became visible during the process.
Noah saw the vast void in all its blackness before an immense landmass became visible in that scene. The plane didn’t have a will yet back then, but the arrival of a white glow forced its consciousness to awaken.
The white glow didn’t care about the many living beings that inhabited that plane. It engulfed the landmass and began to drag it toward an immense array of planets and lower planes.
The scene stopped when Heaven and Earth’s white sky became visible. Noah directly saw large boulders seeping through that immense blinding layer and transforming into materials belonging to the Immortal Lands.
The other world’s anger appeared at that moment. Its will awakened and gave its matter a single purpose. It had to fight Heaven and Earth’s laws, even if the process led to its self-destruction.
‘I knew all of this already,’ Noah snorted while pushing what remained of the will out of his mind. ‘I want your power of change, but on my terms. I don’t want to become a mindless Devil.’
The chaotic laws suddenly stopped affecting the environment. The matter around the dark-red energy didn’t transform anymore. Something inside them had changed after Noah’s complaint.
‘Are you finally ready to listen to me?’ Noah asked cautiously.
It felt strange to interact with something as powerful as that will through thoughts. Noah even had to interpret its vague behavior and make sure that his existence didn’t fall prey to the chaotic laws at the same time.
It was a taxing process. It depleted Noah’s mental energy at an unfathomable speed, but he endured the pain and exhaustion to reach his goal.
“Join… fight,” A deep voice suddenly came out of the lump of chaotic laws.
Noah almost let go of that energy due to that sudden event. He didn’t expect the laws to speak, and his tension didn’t help in the matter.
“I’m already part of the fight,” Noah explained through his voice. “I only need the tools to oppose Heaven and Earth. Your energy can make me immune to their power, and I need that.”
Silence fell, but Noah waited patiently. He didn’t know how hard it was for the small share of will contained inside the dark-red energy to talk, but he could guess that the process was far from easy.
“Transformation…,” The deep voice said.
“That’s the issue,” Noah sighed. “I don’t want the random mutations. I want to fuse your power with my law and use it to improve my existence. Can you do something about that?”
Noah still felt tense, but his situation had improved. He had established a connection with the other world’s will. The procedure had finally taken a step forward.
“Necessary…,” The deep voice said before the chaotic laws burst outward.
The dark-red energy engulfed Noah and pierced the layer of dark matter. The black hole replaced the tainted higher energy, but Noah felt that his mental capabilities were slipping away under that influence.
The other world’s will soon pressed on his mind again and worsened his condition. His companions wanted to go out and help Noah, but he used part of his vanishing control to seal them inside the separate space.
The chaotic laws spread over his figure and eventually managed to overcome the dark matter. They could land on his skin and apply their effects, and Noah’s vision went dark as his existence began to transform.
Noah wanted to fight that process, but he felt that something was off. His instincts were screaming, but part of them could sense that the chaotic laws didn’t have any ill intention.
Instead, it seemed that the other world’s will had agreed with his terms. The chaotic laws fused with his ambition as they reached every corner of his body. Noah soon transformed into a Devil as the dark-red energy covered him.
