Chapter 460: Claw Emperor’s Demon Seal
“You recognize this mark?” Ye Tian Xie looked into Nameless’ eyes and asked this question. This was his first time seeing this kind of expression on Nameless’ face.
Nameless took back his hand and looking at Ye Tian Xie’s eyes, he revealed an indescribable complicated look. He half closed his eyes and thought out loud, “Now I finally understand why she chose this kind of method. So it was not just…..”
Nameless stopped talking and opened his eyes again, saying, “In the past, when you obtained the Sacred Mark’s power, that was already enough to shock me, but now….You actually also have a Demon Seal on you! He…..” He gave a laugh of self ridicule, “So there are many things and my thoughts were too simple.”
“It’s called a Demon Seal? Where did it come from?” Ye Tian Xie asked.
“The Demon Seal is the Evil Demon’s Seal, but this Demon Seal cannot be obtained by any demon. It belongs to the world’s evil demon…..the one that was born at the bottom of the nine hells, in the deepest abyss, the Claw Emperor!”
Ye Tian Xie: “!!”
“The Claw Emperor is the world’s most evil demon and its evil has reached the peak. It can be considered the purest demon in the world because it does not have a trace of kindness in it, only sin because it was born from the accumulation of the seven sins over countless years. Once the Claw Emperor appears, it would definitely become the enemy of every living being……” Nameless looked at Ye Tian Xie with a complicated gaze. The Demon Seal’s appearance meant the birth of another Claw Emperor. It also meant that the current Ye Tian Xie…..will become the Claw Emperor hated and feared by all living beings, forever sealed in the abyss until it disappears…..
Only he clearly didn’t have the Claw Emperor’s evil aura around his body.
“The Claw Emperor would only have one partner in his life which is the Demon Spirit…..” Nameless looked at the innocent Qiu Qiu, “Although the Claw Emperor is powerful, his enemies would be all living beings. Even normal demons would fear him. So, he is destined to receive the hostility of countless experts and one day be defeated by them……In history, the Claw Emperor appeared three times and there would only ever be a single Demon Spirit.”
“Your meaning is…..it is the Demon Spirit?” Ye Tian Xie’s eyes pointed at Qiu Qiu.
“Yes.” Nameless replied.
“Then you think that the current me…..” Ye Tian Xie raised right hand and revealed the faint mark, “is as wicked as the Claw Emperor?”
He had indeed suddenly changed into a Job that was called the “Abyssal Claw Emperor”. The Job’s description of the words “Claw Emperor” was no different from Nameless’ description, it emphasized his evilness and it was an evil that did not contain a trace of impurity. However, how could the current him be considered “absolute evil”. Feeling his body and mind, he did not feel any influenced by anything. This kind of him was the Claw Emperor that even Nameless described with fear?
Nameless was silent, this was also something he could not understand no matter what.
“Then is the Demon Spirit good or evil?” Ye Tian Xie pointed at Qiu Qiu and asked. Since it was the evil Claw Emperor’s only partner, then this “Demon Spirit” should be an evil spirit.
“The Demon Spirit does not decide if it is good or evil, it depends on the master who subdues it. If the master is good, it will be good. If the master is evil, it will be evil.”
Qiu Qiu bounced on the floor twice, it was unknown if it could understand Nameless’ words.
The only emotion Ye Tian Xie was feeling now was confusion.
What Claw Emperor, what Demon Spirit……What reason or opportunity did these come from to appear on his body?
“As for why the Demon Seal appeared on you without causing extreme evil, perhaps the root of this is the Sacred Mark on your left hand.” Nameless said.
Ye Tian Xie raised his left hand and took back the Holy Dragon’s Fang. On the back of his hand, there was a faint four pointed white mark vaguely glowing.
“Sacred Mark…..The so called saint, it doesn’t contain any sin at all, having the most pure sacred heart in the world. A person that has the Sacred Mark can be considered the kindest person in the world, one without any evil thoughts. Your Sacred Mark has always existed, but it appeared from the stimulation of the Illusory Beast Clan’s power. This is because the Illusory Beast Clan has an innate mission to protect. All the Illusory Beast Clan members will throw away all evil thoughts and their stronger sacred heart will become the source of their power, letting them become stronger. Finally, it was even possible for experts of the the four Illusory Gods level to appear. But the limit of the saint is the Sacred Mark and the Sacred Mark Beast is named because of this. Only one who has the Sacred Mark will be able to awaken the slumbering Sacred Mark Beast.” Nameless paused before saying, “With your personality, it’s already very strange for the Sacred Mark to appear on you. The Sacred Mark and the Demon Seal, they are extremes of evil and good. Even if they do appear, it is impossible for them to appear on the same body. It’s like fire and water that can’t mix, light and dark that can’t coexist…..”
The corners of Ye Tian Xie’s lips moved and raising one brow, he said, “Forget it! I have no reason to entangle myself in this, they are nothing more than Jobs in the game world. Perhaps they can affect the people of your world, but they can’t affect us otherworlders. It doesn’t matter what reason there is, the only thing I need to know is if they can make me stronger.”
Nameless took a deep look at Ye Tian Xie, not saying a single word. He took a step forward and reached out his right hand, placing it above Ye Tian Xie’s chest as a faint blue light flashed in his hand.
Ye Tian Xie’s body trembled and from the bottom of his heart, it was like something spilled out through his body. This feeling only lasted for a few seconds before disappearing, not bringing any other strange feelings it with this. When Nameless put away his hand, Ye Tian Xie felt his body fill with discomfort as if foul qi was discharged from him before it filled with a relaxed feeling. Even his eyes became clearer and his hearing became much sharper.
Ye Tian Xie looked over his body and closed his eyes to see how it felt…..Other than the comfortable feeling in his body, there was no other strange sensations that he could feel. There were no prompts that sounded in his ears at all. He looked up and asked, “It’s finished just like this?”
“Right.” Nameless replied with one word. His eyes looked over Ye Tian Xie from head to toe as his lips curved into a meaningful smile, “Although the effects have been offset by a large portion, the current you can be considered reborn. The current you can’t understand it, but you’ll know in a few days.”
Ye Tian Xie looked at his hands and called out his status window, looking over his stats……There were no changes at all.
“You’re certain it’s over like this? I remember you saying before that my strength would explode after going through the seven sins baptism. I didn’t remember wrong, right?” Ye Tian Xie called back his status window and revealed a doubtful and helpless expression.
He didn’t notice that his current tone, expression, and the current him was indeed a bit different from before.
“Your strength will increase, but this growth isn’t active. The seven sins baptism will not give you any kind of power, but it will awaken the personality that already belonged to you and incite your sealed potential. As for this incited potential, it still requires you…..But since it was your strength to begin with, it should be easy for you to display it.” After taking a final look at Ye Tian Xie, Nameless did not stay any longer. He turned around and softly said, “Work hard. We probably won’t meet again for a long time.”
“Where are you going?” Ye Tian Xie blurted out.
“Goodbye.” Nameless waved his hand, but when he was about to disappear, his body suddenly froze as the teleportation space distortion instantly stopped. The giant blue wolf also turned around and its eyes released an incomparably cold glow. They looked right behind Ye Tian Xie.
They were looking at the weak girl who was in a half comatose state with her purple hair and faintly glowing purple crystal clothes, who was actually forcing herself to stand up behind Ye Tian Xie. Her face was very white and she looked incredibly weak, as if even a single breeze could blow her over. She stood there looking at Ye Tian Xie. The panicked expression revealed a pale look of joy as she tried moving towards him.
Ye Tian Xie’s heart skipped a beat, not caring about why Nameless would suddenly stop. He quickly turned around and moved in front of the girl, holding her up. While she was being held up by him, the girl who already didn’t have any strength leaned against him and revealed a moving smile, as her hands hugged him in a very natural manner.
“You’re this weak, you need to rest. Wait a bit and I’ll take you out to play, alright?” Ye Tian Xie carefully supported her, he moved gently like he was handling a precious soap bubble. She only had one HP right now, she was so weak that she couldn’t take even the slightest bit of damage. The reason why she was like this was all because of him. What reason did he have to not use everything he had to protect her.
The girl hugged him and her mouth released this slow and unclear voice. She opened her eyes from her daze and she suddenly couldn’t see Ye Tian Xie nearby. A strange fear compelled her to force herself up and look for him using his aura…..When she finally saw him, the fear in her heart instantly vanished, being replaced with satisfaction.
The girl’s words stunned Ye Tian Xie. In his heart, he was filled with a warm feeling that would almost melt it. He looked down and said in a soft voice, “How could I not want you, I will always be here and will never leave. Be good and rest. When you have enough strength, we’ll go out to play together.
The air suddenly became ice cold and the girl in his embrace shivered, as her hands unconsciously tightened. Ye Tian Xie turned his head and looked at the source of the ice cold air. In front of him, Nameless’ face had revealed an unprecedented sunken expression.
“You’re still not dead!?” Nameless’ cold voice made the temperature fall. Not to mention a weak girl, even Ye Tian Xie shivered from this temperature drop. With how weak the girl was, this cold air even had the possibility of taking her life! The words Nameless had just said was clearly meant for the girl.
Not only Nameless, even the azure wolf behind him revealed an unprecedented cold glow in its eyes. These eyes clearly represented that it was looking at its most terrifying enemy.
Ye Tian Xie’s heart skipped a beat and he quickly protected the girl behind him. His brows knit as he looked at the man and wolf whose auras had undergone a large change.
Nameless’ eyes were terrifying. He looked at Ye Tian Xie, but his eyes went right past him and he was looking at the young girl behind him, “Move, let me kill her.”
When the words “kill her” came from Nameless’ mouth, although his heart had been prepared, it still skipped a beat. His face sunk and he asked in a deep voice, “Why do you want to kill her? She is a child who doesn’t have any strength to fight back.”
“A child that doesn’t have any strength to fight back?” Nameless gave a soft snort and his eyes became even more sinister, “Do you know who she is?”
“I don’t know…..and I don’t need to know.” Ye Tian Xie replied with a frown as his aura was not suppressed by Nameless’ pressure, “I only know that she is someone I want to protect. No one should think of harming her…..even you!!”
Nameless was silent for half a second before he said in a cold voice, “If I want to kill her, do you think you can stop it?”
The black mark shined on Ye Tian Xie’s hand as the Moment of Destiny appeared, which he pointed at Nameless, “You can try!!”
Nameless raised his right hand and the sky split apart as jet black lightning fell down, condensing into the black God Judgement Sword in Nameless’ hand. The sword was covered in black lightning that released a crackle that made people’s hearts tremble.
Wielding the Judgement Sword and pointing it at Ye Tian Xie, Nameless coldly said, “You really want to move against me for her?”
Looking at Nameless, looking into his deep eyes, Ye Tian Xie’s cold eyes slowly relaxed. He shook his head and said with a faint smile, “How could I…..How could I move against you…..Other than to keep the promise of defeating you one day…..Even if you become the most evil person in the world, even if the entire world wants me to hurt you, kill you…..I will never make a move against you…..I just want…..to protect her.”
The two of them locked gazes and Nameless’ eyes began to tremble. He held the God Judgement Sword for a long time without moving.
“In order to protect the people one must protect, there are some who would give up one’s life, one’s everything to shield them and there are some who are willing to withstand all the grief and pressure to leave him…..There are people who even if they die will struggle to come back and help him…..This kind of protection isn’t because he is kind, rather it’s because they truly care about that person. They don’t want him to suffer any kind of pain, allowing them to live a perfect life…..Even if he becomes a beggar, a killer, or is hated by the entire world, this feeling will never change…..Nameless, am I right?”
The God Judgement Sword in Nameless’ hand began to tremble slightly before his hand slowly came down. He looked up into the sky, as if he didn’t dare look into Ye Tian Xie’s eyes.
