Chapter 1036: 1036
There were many dead creatures at the peak of the fifth rank on the ground and countless more in the lower ranks . Noah felt surprised to learn that June could unleash such power . After all, she technically was a liquid stage expert .

Cultivators on that level could deal with stronger magical beasts quickly, but there were hundreds of corpses on the ground . Even with her higher energy, June must have gone all out to defeat that army .

Noah could immediately understand that she was up to something reckless . He wouldn't mind it in normal times, but her actions appeared desperate . It was as if her life depended on them .

The dark star on his chest began to spin faster as soon as he had that impression . His consciousness expanded, and his thoughts became instincts that he could understand without turning them into words .

His mind processed traces and clues at an unbelievable speed . It skimmed through any input found by his body and consciousness with the only purpose of understanding where June had gone .

Noah felt as if he had activated the Divine Deduction technique, with the only difference that his body had started that process independently . It had reacted to Noah's intentions and had empowered the features that made his innate awareness .

It took him less than a minute to find the trail of smell that carried June's distinct scent and discover that it led to the sea . To his surprise, Noah didn't feel any anger when the Heaven's Spark's odor reached his nostril .

'Am I even a hybrid anymore?' Noah couldn't help but think as he led the way for the Demons . The three of them dived into the sea and waited for Noah to find more traces .

There were other magical beasts' corpses in the sea . Their maimed bodies floated in those murky waters, leaving a trail of death that the trio hoped led to Noah's lover .

The pack was far greater than the reports said, or it had been at least . June had killed hundreds of creatures in the fourth and fifth rank, without leaving even one specimen alive .

Noah and the Demons didn't even know if the rest of the pack existed . The only certain news concerned the existence of three leaders in the sixth rank that didn't reappear since they vanished in the sea .

'Is she going after them?' Noah wondered, but he couldn't believe that June had become so reckless . If she did, it was because her situation was utterly hopeless, and she was looking for a miracle .

That realization made him even more focused on finding her, which pushed his dark star to spin even faster . His senses reached a level of sharpness that made him see June's traces on the laws around him .

His new heart made him a peculiar being, but that wasn't his most fantastic feature . He felt as if his body was actively pushing him to become stronger without requiring any fuel .

That went far beyond the inherent advantage of the magical beasts . Those creatures had an easy path, but Noah's body explored that field further . Its constant purification was a sort of preparation for Noah's ascension!

The trio continued to follow June's traces until they sensed a wave of energy coming from the seabed .

Noah didn't even warn the Demons at that point . He directly shot toward the depths of the sea, creating a series of shockwaves that spread on the seabed and gave birth to an earthquake .

Even the simple act of sprinting made nature in awe of his strength . He had become a natural calamity that had to hold back to live among cultivators now .

That event forced the Demons to activate defensive spells, which deflected the might of the shockwave . Meanwhile, Noah reached the bottom of the sea in an instant only to find a cloud of black sparks moving forward .

Noah was about to dive toward it when his instincts warned him of the presence of multiple life forms at some distance from him .

His innate awareness gave him a complete view of the lair . He saw an even more numerous gathering of magical beasts, and he sensed the three powerful leaders resting right at their center .

'Hydras,' Noah thought when he saw those creatures . The leaders of the pack were three Seven-headed Hydras in the lower tier of the sixth rank!

Noah's thoughts processed all the pieces of information concerning that species as he resumed his descent toward the crackling cloud .

Hydras were peculiar . Their potential depended on the number of heads, which meant that those leaders could reach the seventh rank at best . Also, they shared many traits with dragon-like and snakes-like species, being right under them when it came to their bodies' strength .

They had different innate abilities too, one for each head, which made them quite troublesome to face . Yet, Heaven and Earth's fairness made them quite dumb, forcing them to remain isolated on the dark corners of the sea's depths .

Hydras were extinct in the other world, but no one missed them since they brought more troubles than value . The only issue was that they had become hybrids in those Mortal Lands, solving their only natural weakness .

Noah felt even more convinced that someone was behind their transformation . Those creatures would have never come near the coastlines, and it wasn't in their genes to form such diversified packs . He had even started to believe that someone had instructed them to act in that way .

Of course, that was purely hypothetical . Many experts capable of brainwash rank 6 hybrids, even if they had newborns' minds and were stupid by nature .

He would understand if one of the powerhouses had gone through the dimensional portal in those years, but the records said otherwise .

Noah dived through the array of dark sparks, destroying them with his bare body, and landing right behind the figure that had appeared walking inside the cloud .

June stopped when she sensed that familiar aura . Part of her felt warm thinking that she couldn't hide anything from her lover, but the rest of her didn't like that he had arrived right before her final act .

"You shouldn't be here," June spoke, and her works became sharp sparks that exploded in the water around her, echoing her voice .

Noah could sense from her tone how unwell she felt, but he didn't understand how her Perfect Circuit worked even when he analyzed it with his new mind .

He noticed June's cultivation level . She radiated the power of an expert that had almost reached the peak of the fifth rank, even if her centers of power only reflected her status as a liquid stage cultivator .
