Chapter 1025: 1025
Chasing Demon pretended not to hear King Elbas and created a series of small puppets that shot toward him and detonated right before touching his chest .

A massive gray cloud formed, but flames burnt the smoke and revealed King Elbas, who stared at the Demon with an irritated expression .

"I thought we were over with the usual pretense," Chasing Demon said as he shrugged his shoulders . He had seen that conversation happening so many times that he had grown tired of it .

The Hive had joined the war only because of the Council . Chasing Demon would have never chosen to start a long battle now that the Hive's growth was peaking . Yet, the terms of the alliance forced him to deploy some forces, so he took it as a chance to seize more resources .

"Yes," King Elbas said as the flames condensed into a dozen giant fiery snakes that covered his body . "We are done talking . "

The three powerhouses entangled themselves in a series of exchanges, but they soon returned to their domains to leave some space to their underlings . They had no intention to go all-out for those petty battles . The other cultivators could defend the honor of their organizations on their own .

Chasing Demon returned to the Hive with a pensive expression . King Elbas had spoken the truth . Noah had disappeared, and the higher-ups only knew where he had gone .

The Hive didn't send any search team . The Elders trusted Noah and his resourcefulness, and they respected his desire to venture in that journey alone . Still, they couldn't help but feel worried about his well-being, especially now that the pride of the Hive was at stake .




While the new continent saw large-scale battles happening every month, Noah and the group of rebels were traveling through the sea of magma .

Snore carried the black metal and the Ape specimens as it kept Noah's protected, while Skully handled the thousands of human cultivators' defenses . The other heroic experts helped each other during the journey back to the surface, but it was evident that they reached their limits after months spent in that state .

Noah munched pieces of magical beasts all the time to suppress his pain . The injuries on his back had mostly healed, but his mind's situation had remained the same .

The magma's constant pressure pressed on his mental sphere and enlarged its cracks, while his mental energy washed them often to mend them .

Noah felt stuck in a cycle of pain and refreshing feelings that had continued since the beginning of their journey through the red sea . The only thing that he could do to alleviate his situation was to satisfy his hunger .

Even Noah's and Skully's physical strength weren't enough to pierce it . Their only option was to continue exploring until they found another opening toward the surface .

Noah had memorized God's Left Hand's map, but there were no other exits on it . He could only float blindly, hoping that something had formed since the last time that Shandal explored the seabed .

He didn't even need a complete passage . Just a hole deep enough to cross the initial rocky layer would be enough to make them reach the surface .

The group of rebels struggled to continue after more months through the magma piled on the previous ones .

The human cultivators were relatively fine since Skully's protection blocked everything . They were only hungry due to the complete lack of food for them . Instead, the heroic experts were about to exhaust their energy .

Skully was beginning to consider the idea of letting the human cultivators die and focus her mental energy on the stronger assets when a narrow crack appeared on their path and gave them hope .

Noah shot toward the crack and explored its insides . The fissure wasn't too deep, but it crossed the sturdiest part of the seabed, leaving only a small layer of hard rocks in his path .

Skully reached Noah and showed an ecstatic expression at that sight . That was the best path to the surface that they had found along their journey . They had to try to pierce it .

"Get back," Noah transmitted through his consciousness . Black smoke began to come out of his body and destroy the magma around him as Skully retreated .

Waves of pain spread from Noah's mind as he used mental energy, but he held on and summoned all his strength to launch his best attacks . The second form of his martial art landed on the fissure's ceiling, and Snore's elemental offensive followed it .

Skully returned to her underlings and deployed her mental waves to protect them . Pieces of the seabed fell as the red sea trembled, but Noah didn't come out of the fissure when everything settled .

Another tremor ran through the area . Noah had attacked again, but even that didn't seem enough to pierce the sturdy layer since more impacts made the whole region shake .

Noah was going all out to pierce the seabed, and the rocky stratum eventually crumbled under his relentless offensive .

"Open!" Noah shouted through his consciousness, and Skully quickly mobilized the rebels . The group entered the narrow crack and saw Noah punching his way through the softer rocks .

He had dispersed his Demonic Form, so the heroic cultivators and Skully swam forward to help him out .

The group had to dig the seabed for kilometers for the first drops of water to land on their faces . The event made them even more determined to reach the real sea, and the last rocks that separated them from it soon fell apart .

Noah closed his eyes when the cold water fell on his face . He had grown tired of the constant heat of the hidden world, and that refreshing sensation made him feel home .

He had finally returned to the surface . He was back among the old monsters!

The rebels saw the sea for the first time and remained speechless . They had only heard about it from Skully's stories, but they had started to wonder if something like that existed long ago .

A cold sea was unthinkable for them . The magma was everything the rebels had ever seen . Even the few rivers in the hidden world only had hot water that usually burnt their tongues .

Skully couldn't contain her emotions . Her expression showed disbelief, sorrow, and joy in sequence . She was the one who had suffered from in the hidden world more than anyone else, but she had finally returned now .

As for Noah, he thought only about returning to the Hive and isolate himself to fix his sea of consciousness . However, he suddenly felt a dangerous sensation coming toward him .

When he turned, he saw the giant lizard that had destroyed the tunnel again .
