Worlds’ Apocalypse Online Chapter 853
Gu Qing Shan stood within the Ocean Abyss and reached his hand out.
There was clearly nothing here, but he touched a door.
Indeed, this was the entrance into the Abyssal Jail.
But Gu Qing Shan no longer had the triangular key.
"[True Crimson Demon Spear]!"
Gu Qing Shan muttered the words.
A glimmering crimson spear appeared in his hand.
Gu Qing Shan wielded the spear and cleaved the void of space.
Rocks and rubble went everywhere.
The door was cut open.
Gu Qing Shan flew inside and followed the same path as before.
The path was the same.
But unlike last time, there was no wind coming from the other end of the hallway.
"Did the Demon Dragons aura disappear?" Gu Qing Shan muttered.
He traveled along the exceedingly long path until a certain point, then wielded the [True Crimson Demon Spear] and cut open the wall to head upward.
As a cultivator, he had an almost perfect grasp of any directional and locational memories.
Not too long later, he once again reached the area from before.
Preparing himself for a few breaths worth of time, Gu Qing Shan took a step forward.
Something around him seemed to have been activated as the sound of machinery rang out all over.
A cold and emotionless voice emerged from the darkness:
[Through signature life signs, determined to be: human civilian, teenager]
[In accordance with wartime protective protocols, allow adolescence entry into the Abyss Jail for temporary refuge]
[Please do not move about, currently relocating you to a safe location]
The voice disappeared.
A round disk appeared underneath Gu Qing Shans feet and lifted him up, and carried him forward into the darkness.
Gu Qing Shan was glad.
Finally, Ive grown from being a little boy to a teenager.
It wasnt easy.
As Gu Qing Shan traveled for a while on the disk, he noticed that unlike the previous time, the round disk didnt take him to see the sleeping Demon Dragons body.
Gu Qing Shan thought briefly and asked: "I heard that there was a Demon Dragon here"
The round disk answered him: [The Demon Dragon is dead]
Gu Qing Shan froze.
That cant be it.
That Demon Dragon was clever and full of schemes, how could it be killed in an unexpected occurrence?
Gu Qing Shan asked in a low voice: "Is the Demon Dragons body still here?"
[It is, please look beneath your feet]
Gu Qing Shan looked down to see the total darkness below removed by a sudden spotlight that revealed a gigantic dragon head.
Gu Qing Shan was currently flying above this dragon head like a tiny firefly moving through a boundless field.
As Gu Qing Shan carefully checked the Demon Dragons body, he found that the Demon Dragon seemed to be submerged in seawater.
But this seawater had an opaque green hue that blocked out Gu Qing Shans vision and made it so that he could only faintly make out the shape of the dragons head.
"Why is its body submerged in water?" Gu Qing Shan asked.
[That is not water, but rather the Abyssal Tide that washed up from the Eternal Abyss countless years ago. At the time, they were collected by humanitys cultivators in order to be studied] the round disk explained.
Gu Qing Shan was even more confused: "Then why is the Demon Dragons body submerged in that?"
[An emergency situation occurred several years ago, the Demon Dragon and the resurrected Fate Weaver engaged in battle, it was at that time that they broke the container of the Abyssal Tide. The Demon Dragon once again managed to kill the Fate Weaver but it also used up all of its strength and died within the Abyssal Tide] the round disk replied.
Gu Qing Shan was speechless.
He was recalling the conversation between himself in the Demon Dragon at the time.
I need you to give me my next directive
Gu Qing Shan said doubtfully: "Im just a normal child, I probably dont have the authority to do that"
No, after the Bygone Era was over, no human has ever come here until now, so the artificial intelligences authority standard has dropped to its lowest point, you can do it as long as you are human the Demon Dragon explained.
The Demon Dragon seemed to have wanted me to give a certain directive.
Gu Qing Shan asked: "Im a human, would I be able to issue some kind of directive here?"
The round disk immediately answered him: [Indeed, since no human had come here for over 100 million years, youve temporarily obtained the highest authority of the Abyssal Jail]
"What can I do?" Gu Qing Shan asked.
The round disk answered him again: [Too much time had passed, this Abyssal Jail has become incredibly ruined, thus is unable to perform most directives. You can only issue one of two directives: firstly, to release the Demon Dragon; and secondly, to open or close the Abyssal Fate Weaver corpse storage room]
Hearing that, Gu Qing Shan quickly understood.
The Demon Dragon was given the status of overseer of the entire Wraith realm, so it could evolve once every few hundred thousand years, but it was still displeased with this rate of evolution.
The Demon Dragon wanted freedom!
It desired the power of the Abyss!
Gu Qing Shan looked down below.
The Demon Dragons body was gigantic, almost fully submerged inside the Abyssal Tide as if obscured by a thick fog.
Was it really dead?
During the true history of the Age of Old, I never appeared here, nor did I ever see the Demon Dragon.
In other words, no human ever came here, and no one ever released the Demon Dragon.
What would the Demon Dragon do under such a situation?
Gu Qing Shan retracted his gaze.
"Can you bring me to look at the Abyssal Fate Weavers corpse?" Gu Qing Shan asked.
[You are the first human to appear in 100 million years, naturally, you may enter] the round disk replied.
"Would I run into any danger?" Gu Qing Shan asked again.
[You would not, the Abyssal Fate Wavers soul has not been able to come into contact with its body for a long time, so it would not know that you have arrived. Furthermore, a tiny human civilian who had only just reached puberty like you is weak and feeble like that of an ant, you would not trigger the Abyssal Fate Weavers automatic defense reflexes] the round disk answered.
Gu Qing Shan spoke begrudgingly: "How lucky of me"
The round disk said nothing else and simply sped up to carry Gu Qing Shan towards another direction.
A few dozen minutes later.
The round disk brought Gu Qing Shan in front of a metal door.
This door seemed relatively new.
"Was it changed out?" Gu Qing Shan observed the large door and asked.
[Indeed, during the Abyssal Fate Weavers previous resurrection, the door was damaged, so a substitute was put in]
[Please do not worry, each of these doors is sturdier than the last, and during the Abyssal Fate Weavers previous death, its soul was once again removed from its body]
"Are you sure?"
[I can be completely sure about this, all of my functions were created in order to contain it]
The round disk continued: [Please do not worry, I have delegated all energy for the sake of your protection]
Gu Qing Shan went silent briefly.
Although it claimed that, because of the issue with the Demon Dragon, Gu Qing Shan wasnt fully convinced.
But the truth is lying right in front of me.
If I cant see the truth for myself, no matter how well-coordinated and perfect I make my following arrangements, it would be nothing but a last-ditch struggle before death.
Gu Qing Shan sighed and spoke: "Open the door"
The large metal doors rumbled as it moved and opened to either side.
It was pitch black in front of him.
The round disk carried Gu Qing Shan inside.
This time, the disk was flying a lot slower.
It was being careful.
When Gu Qing Shan was about to ask, he soon noticed the reason.
Countless thick white threads filled the boundless darkness of the room, scattered all over the place in the shape of a spider web.
[Attention, please do not touch those white threads, they will make it so that you are completely unable to move. As you struggle, the threads will trigger the Abyssal Fate Weavers corpse through its hunting instincts]
"Even after its dead, it still has hunting instincts?" Gu Qing Shan couldnt help but ask.
"Didnt you say this place was really safe?"
[That is already very safe]
"Youre really calling this safe?"
The round disk continued to fly forward.
A few moments later.
The round disk slowed down.
It silently lowered itself and hovered in place.
Gu Qing Shan saw the Abyssal Fate Weaver full body for the first time.
Unlike what Gu Qing Shan had imagined, its body was only around 3-5 meters big, a complete dwarf compared to the Demon Dragon.
If one only looked at its lower body, they would find the Abyssal Fate Weaver to be a colorful spider.
But as one looked up, they would notice its upper body was similar to that of a human female.
The Abyssal Fate Weaver had a pair of black slender arms, but its skin was snow-white with a beautiful and bewitching appearance, its pair of cyan pupils staring straight at Gu Qing Shan.
All the white threads in the darkness came out from its body.
It was motionless.
Its soul wasnt here.
