“Between dream and reality… Eric seems to be desperate.”
Dazhe stopped resting under the tree but came to the side where Boss Luo and the maid were. Something abnormal happened, which gave him a tingling sensation to be alerted.
Between dream and reality… The maid mentioned those words before.
Under the Miki tree, two identical Miki appeared. One was fused with the cherry blossom tree, but the other seemed to be freed.
“Boss, what is going on down here?” Dazhe frowned.
“[Between dream and reality].” Luo Qiu pondered for a while and then quickly added. “That is Eric’s special ability. According to my intelligence, this dream-eating tapir’s special ability can pull out everything residing in the dream; they would descend into reality.”
“Everything in the dream.” Dazhe scratched his head, then shook his head, “Dream is our imagination. Imagination has no limit. If Eric can pull out everything in the dream, isn’t he invincible?”
“Not so easy.” Luo Qiu also shook his head, “[Between dream and reality]. Dream-eating tapirs can only use this ability three times in their life. It is a consumable ability. At Eric’s level, everything beyond intermediate divine power can’t be summoned out. Moreover, even if Eric can continuously strengthen his power, there is a threshold between dream and reality, which cannot be exceeded.”
Dazhe nodded in realization. If there was no limit to such a unique ability, then there was no need for Eric to purchase any services from the club. To get everything in the world of Yan Wuyue, he could do it directly in his dream. Then, he just needed to breach the gap between dream and reality and manifest the reality he wanted.
“Is this Eric’s counterattack?” Dazhe was silent.
Orochi had the higher ground. It appeared that both Izanami and Eric would become the stepping stone to Orochi’s success.
“But… Even if he pulls out the dream through his ability at this time, can he change anything?” Dazhe was puzzled. “He pulled Miki out from his dream. I don’t understand his intention.”
“He doesn’t just want Miki.” Luo Qiu shook his head.
“Who is that?”
“Chizuko Nagato.” Luo Qiu said calmly, “The complete Chizuko Nagato.”
Just as the conversation between the boss and the employee ensured, something new happened under the vast cherry blossom tree. Even Orochi couldn’t immediately understand what happened in a moment.
How come there are two vessels?
Orochi could keenly feel that these two vessels were both real. The power contained in them was equal.
And that Yin Greedy Wolf too.
It appeared frail, but it exuded the purest Greedy Wolf Star spiritual qi. At first glance, it seemed to have just awakened.
As for the other Chizuko Nagato and the demonized Mo Xiaofei, Orochi did not care too much for the time being. But it vaguely felt that these two fellows should not be underestimated. There came a warning from the depths of its soul.
Izanami was also looking at everything in surprise at this time.
Just when the two parties were in astonishment and fell into a short period of silence, Miki, who was giving Yin Greedy Wolf crazy power, suddenly screamed. She directly flew into Eric’s embrace, who fell on the ground.
Losing the enormous power provided by this vessel, Yin Greedy Wolf, who was in the middle of tearing off the third chain, suddenly became weak. No matter how crazy he was, he still couldn’t break the shackles of the chain!
Four chains with two broken and two intact! Yin Greedy Wolf had gained half of its freedom!
“No! Come back!”
Without Miki’s power, the black shadow that Yin Greedy Wolf transformed into was rapidly degenerating. In an instant, it went back to the state of being a black ball of light. The remaining two chains were dragging it back into Zixing’s body.
“No! Why! You can’t do this to me! I’m Alioth! The fifth star of the Big Dipper! Greedy wolf! You can’t keep me bound! No!!! If you restrain me again, I would rather-“
The black ball of light split apart swiftly at the moment it was about to be retracted. Only part of it was pulled into Zixing’s body. Another part of it plunged into the earth and disappeared.
This did not escape Orochi’s gaze. One of its snake heads showed a sly gaze. No one knew what it was thinking.
But no matter what Yin Greedy Wolf was, the most important thing for Orochi at this time was to acquire Yan Wuyue World completely. When this world fragment fell under its control, none could escape from it.
Without any hesitation, Orochi directly locked its gaze on Izanami. After swallowing the power in this abandoned woman, Orochi would become the most powerful ruler in the Yan Wuyue World.
At about the same time, Izanami felt Orochi’s thoughts. She gritted her teeth. At first, all she wanted was to eliminate these invaders, but she didn’t expect that it would turn into such a chaotic situation in the end.
Things wouldn’t always happen peacefully according to our thoughts.
In ordinary and unwavering daily life, we would suddenly face such a day with all bad things happening. All the things beyond our capability might put together in one day, leaving us at a loss.
Then, we look up and see the twinkling galaxy in the night sky, feeling our insignificance.
Izanami suddenly wanted to escape from this place, even if she had dominated this world for countless years.
But this was only a small world fragment after all. No matter how powerful you are, there will also be someone else stronger than you.
There was no hesitation. When the thought of fleeing appeared, Izanami hardly hesitated, even if she and Eric had an agreement. It was only a verbal temporary agreement. Both sides understood that when their goal failed, such an agreement had no binding force at all.
Orochi had swallowed the Three Deities, consumed [Eight Million Deities], demon, and reincarnated samurais and reincarnated demon beasts. Its power was unprecedentedly stronger. This is fine. I will just let this world stay fragmented. At least, I can still occupy the remaining half.
The other half belongs to me completely.
She could take this half of the world fragment and escape, staying away from everything. Then, it would be a fresh start. She could weave a new Yan Wuyue World that was entirely hers.
In the same Yahiro-dono with Izanagi’s company. In the lower realm, Three Deities would still fight with each other. She could observe them in her spare time with a smile on her face because Three Deities were just naughty children.
Perfect. Everything would become perfect again.
Izanami was like a woman dreaming of running away with her lover, looking forward to everything after that. She turned around and left without any hesitation.
Cut through the space and dashed away, Izanami was too fast for Orochi to react.
“This cowardly abandoned woman! She only knows how to live in her world, so it’s no wonder she will be abandoned!” Orochi was anxious. It had the upper hand, but it never thought that Izanami would flee without a word.
Orochi snorted. No matter how Izanami lost her will to fight, it would not let her go, “Abandoned wife! You think I will let you go! Naive!”
Eight huge snake heads hissed together. The Yan Wuyue World began to tremble frantically, but hundreds of hideous demon beasts appeared in the sky at this moment, stopping Orochi.
These demon beasts appeared out of thin air, one after another. They attacked Orochi immediately without saying a word!
But Orochi didn’t care at all. One of the snake’s heads was locked on the ground. The Miki who is holding Eric… Orochi could not tell the difference between the two Miki, but it could feel the difference between the two Miki. The Miki, who appeared later, was also a vessel. Many souls were stored in her body, just like the Miki fused in the cherry blossom tree!
