Divine Emperor of Death - Chapter 1610 – Corrupted?
Chapter 1610 – Corrupted?
"Still, I cannot believe that you have become stronger than Isabella or me at the moment. How does your cultivation work?" Davis became confused, "Do you have the same three cultivation systems as a human does?"
"Yes, but I don't know as it seems different..."
Evelynn pulled her upper robe from her waist, wearing it back.
"Like how?" Davis also began to wear his clothes.
"I can't really tell..." Evelynn thought for a moment before she answered, "My lower dantian and middle dantian seem normal, yet their pathways are interconnected now. I can use both my Peak-Level Ninth Stage essence energy and martial energy and also combine them to a powerful degree. As for my soul force, it has grown to the level of Peak-Level Eighth Stage along with the increase in the other two cultivations."
"I see." Davis nodded, "I saw your dantians and became confused, but it appears to have the uniqueness of a magical beast and the flexibility of a human. Nevertheless, guess I will have to ask Mival about your cultivation then, but l still have yet to check your soul."
They finished dressing up before Davis asked Evelynn. However, the latter froze.
"I think you need to check my soul as soon as possible."
Davis quickly moved as he touched her forehead. Her closed vertical third eye trembled as it felt his soul sense entering inside.
He felt a sinister aura from her third eye before he moved onto her soul sea. However, once he saw her soul sea swirling with darkness instead of the light, he blinked with a bit of worry before he finally found her soul essence. It was pitch black, unlike the colorless soul essences that people possessed.
Possessing a solemn face, he couldn't help but feel sorry as he mused.
"Your soul became corrupted with darkness after killing this many people? Is this the manifestation of negative karma?"
"No, no." Evelynn shook her head, "It became like this shortly after I saw you fall, although I figured it out only the next day."
Davis couldn't understand. He also thought it could be because of the innate nature of the Three-Eyed Chromatic Hex Arachnid, but it seems like it was because he almost died in front of her eyes?
What was that supposed to mean?
"Does it hurt?"
"No..." Evelynn shook her head, "I feel perfectly fine a and this little fellow also seems to crave it."
A dark light shot out from Evelynn's lower dantian before it turned into a small jet black spider. It ran up Evelynn before it stood on her shoulder, looking at Davis with a reddish light in its eyes.
"This is... the Entombed Darkfall Wisp?"
"So Nyoran kept her words and delivered it, or did you guys kill her and plunder it from her?" Davis couldn't help but feel a bit skeptical.
"Of course not." Evelynn shook her head, "Nyoran gifted the Darkness Elemental and left. This Entombed Darkfall Wisp then choose me after looking at Sophie and Mo Mingzhi, so you're not mad at me for taking it, right?"
"No... I thought that I could use it and have poison attribute at the same time so that you wouldn't feel lonely or ostracized, but it looks like it became more useful to you." Davis couldn't help but heave a sigh of relief as he smiled.
"As a result, it's served to make you powerful alright, which is more than enough for me. Funnily enough, the Darkness Elementals I collect haven't had any fate with me. I gave mine to Mo Mingzhi since she trains in Darknes- Wait..."
Davis couldn't help but blink.
"Did you just say that the Entombed Darkfall Wisp chose you after looking at Sophie and Mo Mingzhi?"
Evelynn nodded her head, "Why do you ask?"
"Mo Mingzhi, I can understand since she trains in Darkness Laws but Sophie? This Darkness Elemental wouldn't even look their way if it wasn't attracted to them in the first place."
Davis contemplated with solemness before he looked at Evelynn, "Why do you think the Entombed Darkfall Wisp choose you?"
"Because my attributes aligned with it?" Evelynn narrowed her sexy eyes.
"Indeed, but what could be the main reason? An Essence or an Elemental wouldn't just choose someone just because they have similar elements. They should have something special for it to want to be with you willingly."
"My soul, that's filled with darkness?"
"Yes, what if Sophie and Mo Mingzhi's souls also experienced a change?"
"I..." Evelynn's brows raised, "I hadn't considered that, but now that you mention it, it seems likely..."
"But you say that it's not harmful or anything, right?" Davis asked for confirmation.
"I mean, that's what my experience with this transformation tells me, but it might be different for them."
"Yes, I'm worried for them now. However, Isabella said they were safe and are practicing cultivation, so I think they are as unharmed as you. It's just... it is unknown if there it poses any harm to you all in the long run, but I'll try to research about it. Surely, the Soul Palace could hold some answers..."
Davis's eyes flashed in an ominous light, "... as well as some accountability."
"Soul Palace, Dragon Families, and many other powers." Evelynn uttered with hatred seething in her heart again, "All of them need to pay, but there are a few problems blocking that path."
"Of course, there would be." Davis smirked, "Otherwise, it would've been difficult to maintain the status quo, and I appreciate you all for being calm enough to wait for my return."
"No, you too, Evelynn." Davis shook his head, "You specifically targeted the Poison Lord Villa and didn't go beyond that. You were indeed calm and tried to take vengeance in your own way, in a way that wouldn't affect anyone else."
Evelynn's eyes couldn't help but tremble. She didn't expect someone to understand the actions she took. Her purplish-golden eyes became teary that she couldn't help but smile as she tilted her head.
"You keep analyzing our moves and are so understanding of us. Truly, I'm overwhelmed enough to thank you again and again, husband."
Davis couldn't help but chuckle at her words.
"Wifey, I have to know what you all did. After all, there's an empty gap of seven months in my head. Otherwise, I'll mess up like before but worse, although I think this world doesn't pose a significant threat anymore..."
Davis looked above at the Calamity Light before shaking his head, "Let's move."
Evelynn nodded at him. They left along with Nadia. When Davis and Nadia arrived here, they were absolutely concealed from the eyes of the world in order to conceal the fact that he, the Emperor of Death, remained alive. They flew in the skies and returned to the Alstreim Family Territory while traveling in a concealed state.
Soon, they appeared in the Purple Guest Palace, where Natalya, Isabella, and Shirley anxiously waited after Davis told them to stay here while he went with Nadia to recall Evelynn.
Once they saw Evelynn, their eyes went wide.
Natalya ran and embraced Evelynn while Isabella and Shirley were stunned as they looked at her current appearance, which may very well be a human's, except she appeared more refined and beautiful.
"You fool! Why did you do something like that?"
Natalya cried as she tightly held Evelynn while Evelynn could only make a wry face.
"Sorry, it was out of desperation, just like how you tried to commi-"
"Ah! That's not fair...!"
Natalya placed her fingers on Evelynn's lips, causing Davis and the others to laugh. However, Isabella remained unamused. She looked at Evelynn as though she required something, and noticing it, Evelynn separated from Natalya as she walked towards Isabella, lowering her head.
"I truly apologize for my stupid actions. I won't do it again."
"Stupid... stupid... stupid..." Isabella clenched her fists as she trembled, becoming teary-eyed, "Can you comprehend how much I was worried sick for you?"
Evelynn took a step forward and embraced Isabella as she wrapped her arms around her waist, trembling, "Truly, I'm sorry. You can slap me as many times as you want."
"I won't do that!"
Isabella cracked out a smile as she embraced Evelynn back, the tears that she held back spilling out of her eyes, "I'm glad that you were able to return and even obtain your former appearance. It's good that you came back the Evelynn I knew, idiot! Stupid! Don't ever act all distant again!"
Evelynn's tears flowed down her face as she received the insults that were full of worry.
