Chapter 759: Grand Meeting (3)
After several discussions and mutual agreement, Oceanid stood up to convey a conclusion and essential points from his explorations with his fellow G.o.ds. “In the last few weeks, we have addressed more than forty sealed areas. Be it those that have been discovered or hidden ones. We have examined the remaining eighty-six sealed areas and have come to a conclusion.”
“…” Everyone was silent, waiting for the continuation.
“We have ten weeks at most for that decisive battle, but we have six weeks of our time to prepare for a large-scale attack. No sealed area will collapse in the next six weeks. This is a quiet time for us to prepare everything thoroughly.” Oceanid finished his announcement.
“Six weeks? If so, that’s four weeks before the peak clash? What if all eighty-six sealed areas collapsed simultaneously at that time?
We don’t have that many forces to deal with everything at once, regardless of this peace agreement.” Alexander raised his hand to express his opinion.
“If it is calculated by ideal values, each race can only deal with six to eight sealed areas at a time if we deploy all of our elite troops evenly. However, it is still below seventy.” Luna presented the results of her calculations.
“Not to mention if the three Ruvoid G.o.ds entered into battle. We would be overwhelmed and be in a predicament in an instant.” Ashera was also worried because she thought of the worst-case scenario first.
The higher-ups mumbled to each other regarding that. Still, the Devil G.o.d, or now the Heretic G.o.d, suddenly hit the concrete, causing a loud b.u.mp.
“Are you idiots? We will gradually destroy the sealed area upon entry in the last four weeks. We must ensure that no accursed creatures remain. At that time, they can prepare sufficient anti-curse mechanisms for our final battle.” Xero pointed at the group of G.o.ddesses beside him.
“You have six weeks to prepare everything, be it advanced weapons or tools of ma.s.s destruction. Plus, you can make a G.o.d-slaying weapon if you can fight those Ruvoid G.o.ds!” Xero clenched his fists enthusiastically.
He wasn’t afraid that the mortals could kill a G.o.d-level being because he had a plan far into the future. This world was too small for him to develop to the next level. He had a hidden agenda for his future self.
“Ooh, that’s interesting. Let’s see what we can do. My dear fellow dwarves, let’s show our scientific superiority to the world. We’ll show one more time about our technology!” Nuraddir raised his fist high with a loud cry.
“Ooh, we’ll show those devil’s technology nothing in front of our dwarf science!”
“Those imitators have no shame and dare to claim that it is theirs.”
“Tsk, if it weren’t for the Heretic G.o.d’s a.s.sistance, they wouldn’t have progressed that far.”
“Glory for the dwarves! Wors.h.i.+p the G.o.ddess of Light!”
The dwarves of Nuraddir’s allies were exclaiming enthusiastically at what they would make in the near future. Making a G.o.d-slaying weapon made them so excited just imagining it.
“…” Dylan and the other Devil Emperors just kept their cool. They already had enough weapons for a great war, and six weeks was long enough to ensure their dominance on the battlefield later.
Among all the groups, the elves and fairies felt uneasy. They were arguably the most advanced in the realm of magic, but the monsters they would face had high magic resistance.
If the great wars and decisive battles broke out, they were the ones who would obviously get the most casualties due to their dependence on the power of magic. Even with the presence of Hea and Celes in their own territory, it still didn’t guarantee peace of mind.
Ashera and Yralissa inadvertently exchanged glances. The Elven Empress and the Fairy Empress usually didn’t get along so well, but they were currently on the same page. They needed to build a solid bridge to the G.o.ddesses as soon as possible, whatever the cost.
Elysia then shared several things based on her experience with accursed creatures and continued by Rhea to conclude everything.
A few moments later, the grand meeting ended, and everyone got ready to leave. However, not before they greeted the G.o.ddesses and the girls.
“Mama, she is a Devil Princess, but she is also a black dragon. Ultra rare dragon.” A young dragonkin with pinkish-white hair pointed at Sylvia as her group approached the divine group.
“Yes, my dear Nara. She is a black demonic dragon from the underworld. Similar to her mama.” Azumi took her daughter’s hand so the little one wouldn’t run to the Devil Princess.
“Oh, it’s you again, the adorable pinkish dragon. You are healthy and lively as ever. Would you like to see the real ultra-rare four-winged black dragon?” Sylvia waved her hand in greeting.
“Ultra-rare four-winged black dragon!?” Nara covered her mouth in shock. She looked left and right because she thought the dragon in question was there, but she couldn’t find it. “You’re not lying?”
“Of course not. Here, he is!” Sylvia raised Cherub high, but the little dragon immediately fled from her hands.
“That’s the ultra-rare four-winged black dragon? Heh, he’s just a small lizard.” Kazuma snorted arrogantly. He was reluctant to greet the others if it wasn’t for the divine beings.
“Well, he can turn into a big dragon if he wants to. You might feel intimidated by him if he transforms into his true form. He is a Saint-level dragon but can rival the power of an Emperor, or perhaps a G.o.d!” Sylvia snorted in annoyance. She was fond of the adorable little dragon and the polite mother dragon, but not this father dragon or those arrogant ones.
“Hou, is it like that?” Kazuma narrowed his eyes.
“I’m not talking to you anymore. See you later, Nara and Azumi. I need to say h.e.l.lo to my father~” Sylvia went to greet her father, who was approaching.
“Dear, why do you have to challenge her? Whether that four-winged little dragon is the real deal or not, it doesn’t concern us.” Azumi pinched her husband on the waist.
“Hiss!” Kazuma hissed. His wife really twisted his waist mercilessly.
“Hi, father~ Nice to meet you again. Do you know, I’ve become much stronger after defeating my heart demon and alter ego.” Sylvia approached her father and gave him a smack to the stomach with a bit of force.
“Well, is that the greeting you give to your father? Where are your manners?” Dylan just rubbed his stomach, but he was pretty happy because he could tell his daughter’s improvement in various aspects.
And the most important thing was that his daughter was much happier than he recalled.
“Heehee, don’t be so formal and cold. I know you’re smiling. Nee, father, you created that black nanomachine armor, not because of that event, right?” Sylvia spoke in a whisper-like voice.
“What do you mean?” Dylan frowned.
“That, Ely, hit you, and K.O.” Sylvia gave a hint.
“I don’t understand what you mean. Because they are so limited, nanomachine armors are only worn by Devil Emperors.” Dylan snorted and folded his arms. He looked the other way and didn’t want to admit anything, even though his daughter’s suspicions were part of his motivation for making this armor.
“Huhu, even though I want one too.” Sophia entered into the conversation in a feigned sad tone.
“Tch, you used to hang around in skimpy clothes. Armor like that wouldn’t suit you as you would have a tendency to take it off.” Sylvia clicked her tongue. This woman was wearing a s.e.xy dress, but she didn’t want to care.
“FUfu, you care about me to that extent? Thank you very much for your concern, my good daughter.” Sophia chuckled and covered her mouth.
Ella, Evelyn, and Lynn also went to see their respective families. They exchanged words after more than a week of not seeing each other.
Ashera and Yralissa seemed to have established an unwritten partners.h.i.+p and their groups followed them to approach the G.o.ddess of Light. However, their current primary target and focus were Elysia.
“…” Ashera and Yralissa gave an eye signal to the other elves and fairies. The elves and fairies seemed to understand and took positions around Elysia’s group so that the others would not disturb them.
“Hi~ Please have a seat.” Elysia pointed her palm to a nearby group seat. She didn’t know what these elves and fairies were about to do, but she remained as friendly as ever.
“It’s an honor for us.” Ashera sat there and glanced at the G.o.ddess of Nature. This G.o.ddess looked like an angelic young elf, no matter how she looked at it.
“Hea and Celes have told me a lot in the past eight days. The past week has been quite peaceful there, but it’s still been difficult for you in the last two weeks.” Lifa seemed to be able to guess what these elves and fairies wanted, but she didn’t make it so obvious.
“Yes, it’s quite difficult for us. And those dwarves only destroy the forest with their weapons.” Yralissa heaved a subtle sigh.
“Though you were protected by nature and had their full support, you simply ignored the ancient laws out of ignorance. You rely on magic too much in this era.” Rhea stated the absolute truth, which hit the elves and fairies hard because they couldn’t deny it.
“…” Elysia and Elena glanced at each other. They were included by Rhea’s words because they were also like that, even though their case was unique.
‘We should train our physique more and fortify it to peak level. That’s what we’ve been doing lately.’ Elysia justified her reason just to comfort herself.
‘I don’t have a real body, but I’ll help you, as usual, ~’ Elena hummed playfully.
‘…’ Elysia felt it was a bit unfair because strengthening the body was more complex and complicated than the spirit.
