Chapter 1943: Should We Cremate Him?

“It’s not that bad if Mu Bai is chosen to be an envoy for the Dark Plane, right?” Zhao Manyan asked.
Xinxia immediately shook her head, “Once his soul is enslaved by the God of Darkness, the pain and suffering he endured prior to his death will be magnified significantly after he turns into a Darkness Creature. It’s how the God of Darkness enslaves the souls from our world for eternity. Even though we haven’t received any information about the Dark Plane, we can only imagine it’s worse than death. Death only happens briefly, but those who are enslaved by the God of Darkness will suffer eternal torture. Most undead do not have their own consciousness. They are merely walking corpses, yet Darkness Creatures have their own consciousness, spirit, and senses…”
“It’s similar to the Dark Beast Monsters, but Mu Bai’s rank in the Dark Plane will be slightly higher,” Mo Fan said.
Xinxia nodded. She had only read about the Dark Plane last night. She had basically opened a terrifying door leading to the unknown!
It was also the reason why she could not resurrect Mu Bai!
“Dark Beast Monsters… that’s one more reason we have to save Mu Bai!” Zhao Manyan declared.
“Mm, if we can’t save him, we should at least purify his soul to prevent it from falling into the God of Darkness’ hands,” Mo Fan agreed.
“Strange, why have I not heard about this before?” Zhao Manyan had to ask.
“We were still too weak in the past. There are things that we can only comprehend after we have reached the Super Level. The Dark Plane is very selective. The God of Darkness’ avatars will only choose powerful human Mages to replenish their lost numbers,” Xinxia said.
“What should we do now? Should we cremate him?” Zhao Manyan proposed.
Zhao Manyan studied Mu Bai. He suddenly felt sorry for Mu Bai when he realized how unfortunate the man was. Death was the final punishment for many people when they found themselves at a dead end, yet Mu Bai had been chosen by a God of Darkness’ avatar!
“If we can figure out a way to make the God of Darkness give up on Mu Bai, I can heal him without relying on the Spell of Resurrection,” Xinxia said.
“Let’s just cremate him instead!” Zhao Manyan rolled his eyes.
What kind of joke was that? If the God of Darkness was like Yama, the King of Hell, were living humans like them even worthy enough to negotiate with it? It would already be merciful by not enslaving them too!
Mo Fan was struggling to make a decision now.
They had no clue where to find the God of Darkness. How were they supposed to negotiate with it?
Even if they did find the God of Darkness, how could they possibly convince him to give up on something he had laid its eyes on?
The God of Darkness was most likely a far more formidable existence than Khufu!
The Dark Magic that had been used across mankind’s history was from the God of Darkness… It was a true god! Why would it care about a mere human’s request?
No wonder Xinxia told them the situation was much worse and complicated than she had thought yesterday.
They had thought that even if Xinxia was unable to use the Spell of Resurrection now, they could just wait until Xinxia defeated Izisha and was elected as the Goddess. Mu Bai only had to wait in the ice cocoon for a few years. It had been their last resort, yet it was no longer an option now.
“Xinxia, is there really no other option?” Mo Fan asked.
“The worst thing about Mu Bai’s condition is the fact that his soul is locked away by the God of Darkness’ avatar. If he doesn’t reclaim his soul, he won’t be able to recover, so his body is going to fail rapidly…” Xinxia said.
Mu Bai’s condition was worse than anyone could have imagined. Normally, death was the end for humans, yet death was only the beginning of the nightmare for him!
“Is it possible to negotiate with the God of Darkness?” Mo Fan asked.
“Brother Mo Fan, someone you know was chosen by the God of Darkness, too. He was dragged into the abyss by Greece’s God of Death, Hayla…” Xinxia said.
“Wen Tai?” Mo Fan blurted out in astonishment
The Holy Saint Wen Tai!?
“Mm, his followers were hoping to bring him back to life, but his soul has long been reserved for the God of Darkness. He would be the hardest person to resurrect in this world,” Xinxia said.
Xinxia had only learned the truth after reading the forbidden records.
After all, that man she had never met was her blood father. Now that she had learned the Spell of Resurrection, if she could bring Wen Tai back to life, him being the reason so many things had happened…
However, Xinxia was dumbfounded after learning the truth. The people who wanted Wen Tai dead had already taken the Spell of Resurrection into consideration, so they had consigned Wen Tai to eternal damnation, where the God of Darkness was personally watching over him!
“Xinxia, has anyone on the God of Darkness’ list managed to escape?” Mo Fan pressed further.
“Brother Mo Fan, the people who want Mu Bai dead already considered the possibility of him being resurrected. There’s no escape,” Xinxia let out a sigh. She initially thought she could be of some help, yet the situation was much complicated than she thought.
Even though Mu Bai was now a Super Mage, the enemy went further than just taking him out. Xinxia was confused. What exactly did Mu Bai do that the culprit had to go so far to remove him?
“But he’s not completely dead yet now, right?” Mo Fan looked at Mu Bai lying in the ice cocoon.
“Brother Mo Fan, I know someone who has reached an unknown agreement with the God of Darkness. She might know how to convince the God of Darkness to give up on Mu Bai if you talk to her… but I’m afraid she won’t tell you anything,” Xinxia said.
“It’s fine, just tell me who she is,” Mo Fan stated.
“Izisha,” Xinxia slowly uttered.
Xinxia had already figured out a way to save Mu Bai, but she felt like it was harder than using the Spell of Resurrection because of the person that was involved…
Her name sounded even more hopeless than the God of Darkness. Mo Fan might even get himself killed as a result. There were two people in this world who wanted Mo Fan dead the most: one was Salan, and the other was Izisha!
If he was going to ask Izisha to save Mu Bai… He would rather figure out a way to find the God of Darkness and negotiate with it in person!
“Mo Fan, should we just cremate Mu Bai instead?” Zhao Manyan asked the same thing for the third time.
Seriously? They had to talk to Izisha now?
Leaving aside their goal to save Mu Bai, Izisha was definitely going to hit them when they were down. She was more than willing to send both Mo Fan and Mu Bai to the God of Darkness!
Mo Fan took a deep breath.
He wondered if Asha’ruiya’s offer last night was still valid…
