Chapter 1280: 1280
His instincts didn't stop sending warning signals to his mind even after the Snake lost its head . Noah began to consider an unthinkable possibility, and he sprinted toward the falling corpse to prevent that from happening .

Noah entered his dimension to reach the corpse, but a shockwave spread in the area and forced him to stop sprinting .

The environment had transformed in the short time that Noah had spent inside his dimension . Entire regions had exploded to create storms that surrounded the corpse and protected it from anyone trying to reach it .

More regions continued to explode . Noah felt eventually forced to retreat since a quarter of the world's frozen lands had begun to shoot their ice into the sky to create storms around the Snake's corpse .

'What is even happening?' Noah wondered as he inspected the event from a safe position in the sky .

The Snake didn't activate any ability during the fall since it was technically death . The ice had started surging on its own . It was as if the world had decided to help the creature .

'If only I were slightly stronger,' Noah cursed in his mind .

The storms carried the leader's power . They resembled proper attacks in the quasi-divine rank even if their might came only from the chunks of ice's hardness .

Noah would attempt to cross the storms if his body was on the same level as the leader . Yet, his physical strength was slightly weaker even with the empowerment of his ambition . He would be overwhelmed by the chunks of ice if he tried to reach the creature .

Returning inside the separate dimension appeared to be the best option since he couldn't predict what would happen once the storms quieted down . Still, Noah wanted to learn about the Snake's abilities .

Moreover, his ambition was still empowering his centers of power . Noah could fight while wielding the same prowess that had put the Snake in that condition . That situation didn't sign the end of his attempts to kill the creature .

Noah crossed his legs and sat in the air . He closed his eyes to expand his mind and call upon his power .

Snore slithered out of the fiendish armor and wrapped its body around Noah . Energy moved on its horns as it completed the preparations for its dark beam .

Night appeared and landed on Snore . The peculiar Pterodactyl was ready to fly toward the Snake as soon as it left the storms . The Blood Companion didn't even mind its behavior since it prioritized that hunt's success over its quarrels with the puppet .

The Demonic Sword began to tremble as it rested on Noah's lap . Dark matter began to leak from its shape after it stuffed its fabric with all the energy that it could contain .

Seconds lasted as if they were minutes . Noah waited for the storms to end as his whole being focused on a simple task . He had to kill the quasi-rank 7 Snake . Nothing else mattered .

Cracks opened in the air around him as his sharpness became more intense . Noah was condensing the entirety of his individuality to complete one task, and his aura reacted to his mindset .

His aura and mental waves became sharper . They destroyed the "Breath" in the area and filled the sky with primary energy .

A dark sphere appeared above Noah at some point . The Black Hole spell began to grow as it absorbed the primary energy accumulated in the environment . Noah also surrounded his figure with a sea of saber-shaped runes that imitated the other spell .

Copies of his fiendish armor slowly appeared next to him . Six of them formed and flew toward the Black Hole spell to wait to receive its energy .

Noah had called upon his entire arsenal for that battle . He didn't know how long it would take for the effects of his individuality to expire, but he would spend that remaining time without holding anything back .

Pieces of ice began to fall on the terrain as the storms lost some of their intensity . The world slowly stabilized, and Noah opened his eyes when he sensed a strong presence at some distance from him .

Noah could see the quasi-rank 7 Eternal Snake standing proudly on one of its frozen regions . All its injuries had healed during the storms . The ice had even rebuilt its entire head and all the missing pieces of flesh .

That wasn't everything . A thick layer of silver ice now covered the creature . Noah had already seen that ability, but the leader's armor appeared far more powerful than the poor-looking ones deployed by the pack in the past .

Noah had many questions . He had seen a magical beast coming back from the dead . His instincts had immediately told him that something was off, but that didn't change how miraculous that ability was .

The Snake didn't die even after it had lost its head . Noah didn't know if it could deploy that ability again or it had conditions attached to that unique feature . Yet, his mind stopped any thought that could divert his attention .

The truth was that Noah didn't care about the Eternal Snake in that situation . Part of him had accepted that he couldn't defeat the creature in that battle, so he only wanted to go all-out . He would be ok with any outcome .

The Snake sensed its peculiar mental state and roared to express that it viewed the battle in the same way . Noah was a worthy opponent in its mind, and it deserved to see everything it had .

Noah straightened himself before waving his hand . His fingers left a black mark on the sky that opened to become a portal . Then, he stabbed his sword inside it .

The Snake didn't understand what Noah was doing, but an unstoppable force suddenly flung him downward . A portal had appeared behind its neck, and the Demonic Sword had come out to launch its attack .

Noah didn't release the energy that it contained . He had revealed the Warp spell to get an idea of the armor's sturdiness, and what he discovered made his expression grow even colder .

The Snakes' leader was a quasi-divine creature . Its strongest techniques would strive toward the ranks beyond the heroic ones . The whole reason why it had reached that stage was that it had already taken a step into the seventh rank .

However, its body was average for a creature on that level . Noah could almost match the creature's physical strength, and that was unthinkable for a beast that was close to becoming a god .

The Snake's healing ability was incredible, but Noah had replicated it in no time . Still, that brim of divine power had to go somewhere, and Noah had placed his bet on the last skill used by the creature .

Those storms had revived the Snake and built an armor . The first part would already be enough to step into the divine realm, but it seemed that the second one carried similar properties .

The ice that made the armor surpassed the level of the leader . It was a proper divine material, which made its protection a divine item .
