Chapter 318: Vol4 Ch43: The Six Disaster incarnations
The wooden main gate of the palace was blown open by numerous Smiths, who proceeded to rush inside. He first took off the sunglasses he was wearing before tilting his head to evaluate the man sitting atop the throne, Xu Fu.
Various data proceeded to flow within his eyes, confirming Xu Fu’s identity. As soon as that was accomplished, all the Smiths charged straight at the throne.
“What meaningless actions” Xu Fu lightly slapped his hand against the armrest of the throne, producing numerous fleshy spikes from all over the ground, transforming the palace into a forest of fleshy spikes.
The Smiths were like tiny worms whose bodies were skewered without resistance. However, immediately after that, their bodies abruptly began to burn and turned into light-blue 0s and 1s that flowed through the air, more Smiths continued to rush towards Xu Fu without any fear of death.
The forest of fleshy spikes continued to twist and change, any Smiths who entered that zone would proceed to be skewered to death without fail, but all the dead Smiths simply turned into data that flowed through the air.
As Xu Fu looked up to observe where that data was flowing to, a gust of wind suddenly blew towards him, a Smith then manifested out of nowhere and swung his fist towards Xu Fu’s face.
Some of the Smiths at the door had begun to change their strategy, some of them stood just outside the forest of fleshy spikes, throwing the Smiths who came after them over the fleshy spikes forest towards Xu Fu.
Xu Fu tightly gripped Smith’s fist with his bare hand. Thanks to the immense volume of blood aura he accumulated, his strength had been improved qualitatively. Even though Smith’s physical strength was already monstrous, he was still incomparable to Xu Fu.
“You seem to be rapidly evolving” Xu Fu was highly interested.
During the three seconds that he gripped Smith’s fist, Xu Fu noticed that Smith’s physical strength had grown by 3%, and this growth was exponential the longer he remained in that stalemate.
This was a monstrous rate of growth, and with how many Smiths there were, as long as Smith was given enough time and opportunity, he would grow to become the most physically powerful entity in this world without a doubt.
“There is nowhere you can run” staring straight at Xu Fu, Smith uttered his first statement in this world with a ferocious expression. More Smiths then proceeded to rush closer, each of them locking up one of Xu Fu’s limbs with proper martial arts techniques, every Smith’s growth was synchronized.
“But why would I run!?” the bloody aura on Xu Fu’s body exploded in a frenzy. Each strand of blood aura on his body was equivalent to the full-body mass of a single person. This was the total accumulated blood aura of the entire undead tribe in the past thousand years.
As Xu Fu saw it, the undead tribe was his creation, so they were naturally his belongings. Having gained immense strength, Xu Fu used his bloodline connection to summon all the undead in the world, then devoured them all at once.
Facing their Progenitor, Xu Fu, no matter how powerful an undead was, they were helpless. The core of their existence and their source of power originated from the flesh granted by Xu Fu, so when Xu Fu had decided to retrieve his flesh, none of them had any hope of resisting.
Only the undeads who had awakened their True Spirit had a slight chance of putting up a fight, but against Xu Fu who was essentially hacking, they all lost.
This blood aura felt like they contained thousands of tons of force, instantly blowing the Smiths into scraps of blood as soon as they were used. Xu Fu’s figure wasn’t particularly towering but when accompanied by this blood aura, he appeared like a giant who covered the sky itself.
The forest of fleshy spikes swiftly pulled back, each of them turned into a strand of blood aura. With a hysterical expression on his face, Xu Fu began to actively attack, by jumping into the middle of the Smiths as a streak of red light. By simply being grazed by this red light, Smith’s body that was comparable to steel in hardness crumbled and collapsed.
As the red light moved among them, the sea of numerous Smiths was turned into a stream of 0s and 1s data, which gathered in mid-air.
The final Smith who Xu Fu crashed into appeared like he was crushed by a mountain, his body shattering into scrap data.
However, more Smiths were continuously rushing towards the palace from every direction, Smith had been continuously making more copies of himself.
Over half of the royal capital’s population had been converted into Smiths, the rate of which was still rapidly increasing. According to Smith’s own calculations, in 3 minutes and 56 seconds, the entire population of the royal capital would have been converted into Smiths, excluding the very few who were lucky enough to be hiding in secluded corners.
“Then let us see whether your conversion is faster, or my eradication is faster!” Xu Fu’s immense blood aura lifted him into the sky, allowing him to see everything in the royal capital at once, nothing escaping his attention.
If he didn’t know that parallel worlds existed, Xu Fu might still pay some attention to normal humans, as they would be the future subjects of his undead empire, but once he had set his goal to break through the limit of this world, Xu Fu no longer cared for such things.
The palace exploded behind him with six figures jumping out from the wreckage. Their expressions were completely blank, almost like walking corpses, with the one at the very center wearing a royal robe and a fabric crown with twelve rows of jade beads, the Emperor.
Mi Yi landed into the shadow of the palace wall and watched the figures, then took a deep breath. If the Ultra Space-Time Squad hadn’t lied, he would have become one of them in the near future.
For the past half a month, Xu Fu had taken over a total of six people who managed to awaken their True Spirit through his split souls, whom Xu Fu called the Six Disasters.
The Emperor had united all the nations under his banner. For the sake of his Empire’s peace, he had confiscated all of the people’s weapons, using them to forge twelve iron men, the [Origin] ability he awoke was also related to this, thus called the War Disaster.
The woman with long red hair was a first-generation undead, as well as a member of the ancient Xu tribe. Her thousand-year life had allowed her to awaken her True Spirit, gaining the ability to manifest a great drought, thus called the Drought Disaster.
The half-naked man with a snake tattooed on his bald head was the Flood Disaster, who was also a first-generation undead. He was the most loyal to Xu Fu, having continuously been searching for traces of Xu Fu’s statues over the years. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop him from being turned into one of Xu Fu’s incarnations.
The white-haired old man carrying a gourd of wine was an Elder of the Mi Clan, who had reached the peak of Aura Summation. He was outside and noticed when Xu Fu summoned the undead, so he came to stop it, only to be killed by Xu Fu and turned into one of his incarnations. Due to this ability being related to fire, he became the Flame Disaster.
The two remaining undeads who had almost the same appearance as one another were two new talents who emerged from among the undeads during recent years. They were a pair of twins who had awakened the abilities to control air and bodily mutation respectively, thus they became the Wind Disaster and the Monster Disaster.
Xu Fu had also told Mi Yi before that if he were to fail, he would also become one of these incarnations, and the Six Disaster incarnations would become seven. Xu Fu had even prepared a name for them, the Seven Calamities of Death.
The first to act was the Wind Disaster, which caused the air around him to twist by raising his hand. The intense wind swirled around one another, quickly forming a tornado in just a few minutes; some of the Smiths didn’t have a proper foothold, so they were directly whisked upwards and crushed by the air friction.
However, most victims of this wind were normal people who were just trying to run, as anyone who got sucked into the tornado would die without fail.
“If everyone were dead, you’d have no one else to convert, wouldn’t you!?”
After Xu Fu refined them into his incarnations, their abilities were exerted to an even greater degree compared to their original owners. Part of this was because Xu Fu’s split soul was stronger than their original souls, but the other part was due to the Ultra Space-Time Squad. Xu Fu had managed to absorb plenty of knowledge from the Ultra Space-Time Squad, which he was using to manifest the strongest effects with the least effort.
