Nanomancer Reborn - I've Become A Snow Girl? - Chapter 1094: Imminent War
“Who are you?” Gaia questioned with a frown.
Hearing this the other party paused for a moment before turning towards her.
“I didn’t expect another god to be involved.” He muttered with a smile.
“I asked you a question. Care to answer?” Gaia narrowed her eyes as her divine energy flared out.
“Ahaha that is true. Hmm… who am I? Well I’m a god, an injured one. Sorry to cut our meeting short but I can’t stay around. My only allegiance is with Misu, if she lives then I’m fine. The young lass you have your eye on seems to be Misu’s friend so I won’t hurt her don’t worry.” He smiled before snapping his fingers.
Having their connection forcefully terminated for now, Gaia couldn’t help but stumble back for a moment and frowned.
“You ok?” Nyx asked with a raised eyebrow. Gaia had suddenly stumbled back without warning and her expression didn’t look too good so naturally she would be worried.
“Mn? Oh yeah I’m fine. Seems like Misu’s got a god backing her up.” Gaia shook her head.
“Is that so? Hmm…This new age is quite abnormal isn’t it? Gods are popping up left and right. Though to be fair we were the first ones to do this since we’re sending down quite a few avatars for Shiro.” Nyx shrugged.
“Do you think it is perhaps the system’s way of bringing balance? While our privilege may be higher than other gods we have been abusing it for a while now.” Tartarus asked as Nyx fell silent.
“Hmm… Well setting that aside now how are the preparations going?” Nyx asked.
“Hades has been gathering support and so far we’ve gathered quite the army. Even if Zeus and the others find help from other pantheons we have a good chance of overwhelming their strength. The only problem left is how the system will react. You’ve seen how it was not too happy last time about us fighting against the watchman.” Tartarus replied as Nyx and Gaia both sat down.
“That’s true. Plus, we also don’t know what’s the deal with that woman from last time. Her deepest fear was apparently Shiro and she is able to access a power much stronger than what we have.” Nyx sighed as he remembered the fight from last time.
“Until we find out what’s the deal with her, it’s risky to attack first.” Gaia said, resting her chin on her palm.
“True. The war will break out soon so it is inevitable. We will suffer if we attack too soon but we will also suffer if we wait. They’re trying to get rid of us just like back then.” Ouranos clicked his tongue.
“Yeah well if you were more responsible then that probably won’t happen. Considering how Zeus is, there was probably a chance of a coup regardless but you could have at least been remembered as a nice god.” Gaia shrugged.
Hearing this, Ouranos frowned before staying silent.
“Alright alright, settle down. What’s our main priority right now?” Tartarus calmed them down.
“Our main priority is to corner off Zeus’ forces so that we can wipe them out. Stop their influence from spreading and seeking help from other pantheons.” Ouranos grumbled as Tartarus smiled.
“Yup, so let’s start doing that then. I hope we can end this war before the second half begins. That way, Shiro will have our full support without anyone from our pantheon trying to hinder her.”
“Don’t forget about her mum. Hades is helping her out right now but we need to guarantee her safety in the background.” Gaia reminded as they all nodded.
After creating the crystal, Shiro sighed and sat on the floor.
“Ahhh…. The second time is just as hard as the first.” Shiro sighed as her body was now completely drained of divine energy.
“Thank you, is there anything I can do to repay you?” Misu asked as Shiro waved her hand.
“It’s fine ahaha, I promised that I would do this after all. Just help me out when I’m in trouble and it’ll be fine.” Shiro smiled as Misu felt touched.
Helping her to her feet, the two talked about their next steps.
“Right now, we have a while until we need to challenge that dungeon with Syradil. I’m going to be looking for a few dungeons to level up in. if we do fight, which we will, having a control mage like you would help a lot. Plus, you’re also a Queen so your fighting strength is higher than the average person.” Shiro said as Misu nodded.
“Well I do have a bunch of spare time to try to level up. Though I won’t be able to summon too many undead since they are dead souls brought back for the sake of combat. I don’t want to force them to fight if they don’t want to. My combat power might be weaker than you expect. Though if it is our enemies within the dungeon, I can summon them to battle.” Misu reminded as Shiro nodded her head.
“That’s fine, our battle in the future would be an invasion by a demi god and his army. If you can convert his army into our allies then that would be good too. All in all, we just need to reach a good level before the invasion begins. If we’re too low level, there won’t be much that we can do and a good majority of the world would be destroyed in front of us.” Shiro nodded.
“In that case then just call me if there is a good place to level up. I might have to finish dealing with a queen first since she’s been putting pressure on some of my cities. While the city may be connected to Asharia I still want to end this conflict if possible, have her turn her attention elsewhere.” Misu said as Shiro tapped her chin.
“Well if you want me to help you I can, it might also put more pressure off you since she’s pretty hot headed from what I know.” Shiro offered as Misu blinked her eyes.
“Ah you’ve already done a lot for me, I can’t trouble you more than this.” Misu waved her hand but Shiro shook her head
“It’s fine, there’s not much I’m doing anyways. I have my satellites looking for a good place to level up and some of my staff are checking the feeds to make sure it is accurate. The last place I checked gave me a decent material that can be used for research.” Shiro reassured as Misu accepted her help.
While Shiro and MIsu were talking to one another, a certain Queen received a rather interesting piece of news.
“It’s what now?” A woman asked in disbelief.
“The city was ripped from the Earth and lifted into the sky where a second city appeared. It was 10 times the size of how big the original city was and after connecting to one another, it disappeared.” The subordinate reported as the Lightning Queen furrowed her brows.
“So you’re telling me, that the Undead Queen Misu, somehow lifted her city up into the sky and disappeared?”
“The f*ck?! Are you sure you didn’t see wrong? How the hell can a city just disappear like that?” The Queen slammed her hand onto her arm rest.
“I’m being honest, your highness. I can take you to see for yourself. There is now a large chunk of land missing and the same goes for some of her other cities. They’ve all disappeared.”
Seeing the panic on his face, she understood that he was probably being truthful.
“Fine, let me go check for myself.”
Slamming her hand down, lightning wrapped around her body as she shot out of the room.
The sound of thunder rumbled in the sky as dark clouds gathered together.
Shooting into the centre of the clouds, the Lightning Queen disappeared.
Travelling through the sky, she soon discovered the large chunk of land that was missing.
Landing on the floor, she walked up and frowned.
“What the hell…” She muttered.
Even if she was to try to destroy a city like this, she wouldn’t be able to cause this much damage. There may be ruins but not to the point where not even a single brick was left behind.
Plus, the mana that was needed to lift something like that into the sky was nothing to laugh at.
Staying silent, she was about to leave when she felt a spike in mana. A tier 6 magic circle appeared in the sky as two figures appeared from the portal.
Recognising one of the figures to be Misu, the lightning Queen narrowed her eyes and glared at her before turning to the second figure.
After hearing about how the city was lifted into the air, she had a slight idea of who it was but after seeing her in person, she realised her worries were right. The winner of the most recent event, the one who had a floating city behind her on the crest, it was the white haired devil.
“To think you would actually make an alliance with another Queen. Count me impressed.” The Lightning Queen forced a smile while thinking of a way out.
However, without saying anything, Shiro raised her hand and clenched it into a fist.
Suddenly, the Lightning Queen felt all of the mana drain from the area and widened her eyes in shock.
