Swallowed Star - Chapter 842 Death
Luo Feng gazed around. This entire room was made of G grade metals, along with the mysterious engravings, it was impossible to break out.
“Aboriginal, what are you planning!” Gold Cang waved his lightning pike, staring angrily at Qiu Chi Ka.
The other emperors looked on coldly at him.
Even though they were trapped within, the warriors weren’t too worried because they could teleport via their god country out. Only thing was they they didn’t trust each other and they still wanted to get the treasure. Hence they didn’t plan to leave immediately.
At this moment…
Outside the room.
Two beams of light swiftly flew over and stopped outside the room. They were the aboriginals Men Bu and La Di Mo.
They looked at the two locked in talismans on the door, with excitement and pain at the same time.
Pa! Pa!” They reached and easily retrieved them.
They hesitated for awhile as they looked at the room. They knew that their elder was within.
“Elder!” They howled in pain within.
“Hurry and go!” A voice pierced their ears. “Hurry and go, we cannot be careless at all with the inheritance.”
Men Bu and La Di Mo gritted their teeth and became beams of light leaving the room.
“Elder, you must survive, you must survive” Men Bu turned and howled as they left.
“Elder!” La Di Mo shouted too.
A voice resounded within the walkway. “If possible, I would. However the chances of that are very slim. As long as you can get to the inheritance room and get the treasure there, I will have no regrets.”
“Elder!” The two of them welled up in tears.
Within the control room, Pu Ai watched the scene with pain and excitement. This was Qiu Chi Ka’s inheritance plan, the entire plan was to get the talismans. The plan was simple, he would show himself and draw the invaders to the treasure room. After which, he would get the talismans and open the room, leaving the talismans on the door. Then he would rush in and pretend to get the treasure. Naturally the invaders would be drawn in along and then he would shut the door. The talismans could then be retrieved.
With the doors shut, the invaders wouldn’t be able to escape.
Men bu and La Di Mo could easily head towards the inheritance room and take its countless treasures away.
Two things about the plan required luck.
One was that Gold Cang and the others had to trust Qiu Chi Ka and follow him to the room.
Secondly, it was whether they would rush into the room along with him, and whether they’d notice the talismans stuck to the door outside. If they requested for it to be taken down…Qiu Chi Ka could secretly order the door to shut, saying that the doors required the talismans to be stuck on it or it would simply shut.
All in all, there were several risks.
He was the first to rush into the room, putting himself in danger. This was the most important part of the mission. If he didn’t enter or rushed out immediately, the others would naturally follow him and he wouldn’t be able to lock them in. That would affect the plan.
“Third brother.” Pu Ai shouted in pain, “You could have chosen not to enter the room.”
“If I don’t enter, they won’t enter either. And if they don’t enter…Men Bu and the others won’t be able to get the talismans easily, the plan would be for naught.” Qiu Chi Ka’s voice resounded within the control room. “Everything is for the race!”
“Hm, everything for the race.” Pu Ai nodded.
Of the three treasure rooms, the first one held the least treasures. The second room had more treasures within. As for the third one, it had countless techniques and inheritance treasures for the entire race, it was the true inheritance.
The inheritance room was the most important of the three Qiu Chi Ka couldn’t allow any failure, hence the one he entered…was naturally the second room.
Within the room.
“What am I doing?” Pinned against the wall, he smiled at Gold Cang. “Invaders, why don’t you guess what I’m doing?”
“Playing with me.” Gold Cang’s voice rumbled.
Luo Feng frowned at Qiu Chi Ka, he had felt something amiss all this while, almost like victory was in Qiu chi Ka’s hands.
“Speak, how do we open the chest.” Gold Cang pointed at the ancient chest bound by twelve locks.
“Hmph, haha.” Qiu Chi Ka laughed weirdly at him.
“Do you wish to die?” Gold Cang was very angry now as he roared.
“Smart!” Qiu Chi Ka simply looked at him and said softly, “I wish to die!”
The others beside him were all stunned. They looked on with disbelief at this aboriginal.
“I wish to die.”
“Do you understand?”
“I’ve lived for far too long, and I’ve been in pain for too long. When my race faced extinction back then, I’ve been struggling for so long, I’m too tired. Now it’s time to end it.” His eyes seemed relaxed. “I may even take a couple of other race emperors with me, haha, how exciting is this.”
“This aboriginal is mad.” Purple Clock and Piercing Tiger were stunned.
This aboriginal was a pinnacle emperor too. If he self destructed, Gold Cang may be fine, but the two of them would be in trouble.
“We’ve finally got the inheritance.” He closed his eyes and smiled. “I’ve done my part.”
“My love…when you fell back then, I wanted to accompany you, but I couldn’t. Now however, I can follow you into eternal sleep.” He closed his eyes and smiled widely, after which powerful ripples began to emanate from his body.
Pu Ai was watching the projection in the control room all this while. He howled painfully, “No!!!” third brother, don’t do this!”
Two beams of light flew into the control room. It was La Di Mo and Men Bu who had just acquired the inheritance, they watched the projection and were stunned.
Within the treasure room.
“No!” Piercing Tiger opened his eyes and fiercely banged hard at the wall, however the walls were too sturdy.
“Madman, madman, madman!!!” Purple Clock gritted his teeth and cursed madly.
“What a madman.” Gold Cang simply snorted and stood there.
Luo Feng wrapped himself in his wings and said, “I don’t know if I can withstand this.”
Qiu Chi Ka maintained his smile as terrifying energy started to exploded from within. He closed his eyes, rumble…every cell in his body instantly exploded with terrifying energy, trillions of years of undying energy began to erupt!
Rumble…an explosion akin to a million sector lords combining their attacks filled the entire room.
The room was only that big. So, there was nowhere to hide!
“I cannot die!” Piercing Tiger howled.
“Hmph.” Purple Clock snorted as a purple clock image appeared on his body.
Luo Feng wrapped himself.
Gold Cang simply stood and stared coldly.
The powerful force instantly engulfed the four warriors. At this time, Piercing Tiger and Purple Clock fought hard.
Rumble! The final force which passed through the Sha Wu wings and General armor still managed to make his cloud contact armor crumble. It’s sturdiness was akin to a low emperor human, and normal high emperors wouldn’t even be able to breakthrough it.
Completely crumbling meant the difference was huge.
“Rumble…” The remaining force shook his body hard, instantly destroying 80% of his body. However it swiftly recovered.
Without the Sha Wu wings and general armor, Gold Cang, Purple Clock and Piercing Tiger were completely different.
Gold Cang stood there coldly, his body instantly crumbling from the force. However, he reformed right after with the same cold expression, staring at the other three.
The tragedy was just as bad in the control room.
The three aboriginals were in absolute grief. Qiu Chi Ka had been leading their race since the sweep before. He was a spiritual leader and he helped support them for so long. He had settled all difficulties and dangers. But, now that they had finally acquired the inheritance, he was gone.
“This is a message left behind by the master, he wanted me to pass it to you after he died.” The AI of the tower said clearly.
The three warriors held their breaths.
Qiu Chi Ka’s voice resounded.
“Pu Ai, Men Bu, La Di Mo, when you hear this, I’ll already be gone. Please forgive me, I’ve chosen to escape! The trillions of years before, living only on faith, now that we’ve acquired the inheritance, I’m satisfied. I’ll leave everything to you all. The treasure room is already shut, and they cannot get out and they cannot open the chest either. I believe they will ultimately choose to teleport via their god country. The moment they leave, you can sneak in and get that treasure chest too!”
“This is the most perfect ending. If other invaders come, you can instantly enter the god country via the space pathway and destroy the pathway.”
“Clean up the ends.”
Pu Ai, my brother, La Di Mo, Men Bu, my children, the future of the race is up to you all. Forgive me for my escape.” Silence.
The three couldn’t help but cry.
The undying survivors had all supported each other through the years, and their relationships were incredibly close, even though Qiu Chi Ka had been their elder and leader.
“You didn’t escape third brother, you didn’t. You were simply too tired, you needed rest.” Pu Ai muttered, beside him the other two were silent.
For the race, their elder Qiu Chi Ka…had fallen…
