Chapter 1102: 1102
King Elbas wasn't the type of cultivator that would resort to schemes to deal with his opponents . He was driven and curious, but he wouldn't do anything to hurt his image .

Moreover, his cultivation level placed him away from political struggles . His only goal was to ascend now, so the organizations didn't think that the meeting would endanger them .

Reports reached the alliance's inscribed notebooks . Those in charge of overseeing the new continent's situation stated that the Princes and Princesses had left for the Papral nation .

The structures on the old continent then confirmed that the Royals had conveyed their invitation to the Empire before returning to their respective regions .

The matter became official at that point . The Royals had invited all the interested parties and restored their political silence, and only one doubt remained in the minds of the three leaders . They couldn't understand why King Elbas had decided to invite Noah too .

Noah wasn't exactly famous for his political skills, and King Elbas had suffered a loss when he dealt with him . Even his inscribed items didn't prevent the Demon Prince from tricking him into leaving the surface .

"You don't have to come," Chasing Demon said as he neared Noah . The Patriarch was worried that Noah could be in danger if he went to the meeting .

Noah couldn't claim to know King Elbas personally, but he understood him . They had a lot in common, but there were a few sharp differences that made them uniques .

King Elbas was a true creator . His interests enveloped everything in the world, and he was willing to put himself in danger and damage his reputation to appease his curiosity .

Noah put his cultivation level and battle prowess before everything . He had developed other interests throughout his life, but they always concerned his power .

King Elbas preferred grand actions and flashy gestures to prove his superiority . Instead, Noah would often resort to tricks and deceit when necessary .

Noah didn't care about his image, while King Elbas needed it to fuel the power of his bloodline . If the Royal had to resort to a trick to kill Noah, his family would lose most of its reputation .

"I'll go," Noah firmly answered, and the weaker experts paying attention to that interaction couldn't help but nod at his determination .

Noah had learnt to behave like a true leader with time . He often ignored those obligations due to his aloof character, but he always acted while keeping the Hive's best interests in mind .

It wouldn't be wrong to say that the Hive's status would be nowhere near its current one if it weren't for him .

The Seventh Kesier rune alone was enough to make him the most important existence in the entire Hive . He didn't manage any political matter, but the higher-ups knew that their organization's future was safe with him .

The Elders of the Council saw that too, and they felt glad that Noah was their ally . He usually created chaos whenever he moved, but they would never hope to have him as their enemy .

Even if his dantain was still in the fifth rank, no one dared to consider him an incomplete powerhouse . Actually, some believed that he was already stronger than his Patriarch .

Of course, Noah didn't care about his public image . His mind had registered only two pieces of information: The meeting with King Elbas and the time he had to prepare for that event .

'Training with Sword Saint is obvious,' Noah thought as the troops dispersed, 'But what should I do other than training?'

Three years were nothing for him now . He could spend them thinking about his next project if necessary . Yet, he still had plans to increase his power in the short-run .

Noah had solved the situation with his spells, and he had even improved the Demonic Form . His centers of power grew steadily, and his dantian only needed time or some sudden enlightenment .

He couldn't accelerate the training with Sword Saint . Only the endless repetition of his best slash could make it become his foundation .

The copying of the elements had met a bottleneck . Noah had no idea what to do with the light element, and no one could help him in that matter .

Noah could begin to create techniques capable of fusing with his new spells . Still, his sword arts were incomplete, so he found it pointless to invent forms that he would have to change soon .

'It seems that you are my only option,' Noah thought, and a surprised gasp resounded in his mind .

Night had remained inside its dark underground area during the recent events . King Elbas probably knew a lot about that species, so Noah didn't want to risk it while it was in that weak body .

Their connection had improved, so the two could talk even if they were in different regions . It was as if Noah had a permanent open channel with the Pterodactyl's mind .

"Is something happening?" Night asked through its connection, but Noah didn't answer . He would keep the creature curious for a while to avoid seeing its smug face again .

The world couldn't return to complete peace after King Elbas' return . The shadow of war loomed over the new continent, so every expert did their best to improve their prowess .

They didn't know how the meeting would unfold . It was better to prepare for the worst .

Chasing Demon even issued a series of specific orders meant for Thirty-seven . The automaton and his disciples had to create temporary cities in the separate dimension if King Elbas decided to go all-out against the alliance .

There wasn't enough time to resume creating living weapons, and Noah wasn't in the mood to use those years for that . The various experts could only use their resources to either purchase or build their inscribed items .

Noah returned to the tower next to the Divine Cut . He had a room on the last floor where the sunlight couldn't enter, and he quickly began his project there .

That wasn't his first time improving Night's body, and he had already studied the corpses of its species in the past . Replicating those creatures' innate ability was hard, but Noah didn't want to stop at that .

The Night-blade Pterodactyls were incredible in the right environment . Noah had even begun to believe that they could really be the best predators in darkness .

However, that wasn't enough . It was pointless to be the best among ants in a world filled with dragons .

Night had sensed that something was up, so it didn't hesitate to fly to the tower to spy on its Master . When it reached the last floor, it found June opening one of the windows to allow it inside .

The beast wanted to shoot directly in the isolated room, but June promptly stopped it .

"Noah is working with the corpses of your species," June said before returning to her mat to cultivate .

Her appearance didn't change in those years, but the aura that surrounded her had become unstable . It was as if she was ready to explode at the first sign of battle, which created a sharp contrast with her calm expression .

"Is he creating a new body?" Night asked as a deep chirp accompanied its human words . "It was about time! I suffered so much in this thing!"

June stared at the bird-like creature with interest, but she didn't say anything . Night eventually found that constant gaze annoying and questioned her about it .

"What is it?" Night asked with a tinge of impatience .

"Noah always tells me that you are more expressive than humans," June replied without moving her gaze . "I just can't understand where your expressions are . "
