Chapter 1316: 1316
Noah saw his fiendish armor falling apart when the soundwave engulfed him . His skin also trembled according to that rhythm, and blood amassed in his mouth as internal injuries accumulated .

The echo of the howl shook Noah's insides and forced him to spit mouthfuls of blood . He didn't even charge at the cultivator, but the power of his individuality forced him to retreat .

That was the strength of a god . An individuality could affect the matter in the area and change its functions . Simple spells couldn't defend against that type of power . Noah felt naked in front of that ability .

'So that's how it is,' Noah thought as his black hole sent dark matter toward his injuries .

Noah had brought his dantian on a decent level after his seclusion . In theory, he didn't have any weakness . Yet, his inexperience in battles in the divine ranks didn't allow him to express his real power .

Instead, Gil knew what it meant to be a rank 7 cultivator . He knew how effective his individuality was, so he didn't hesitate to deploy it when Noah was about to kill him .

Zach and Bertha imitated Gil when they saw Noah's armor shake . Their auras surged, and their laws spread in the environment as they affected the matter .

Zach's individuality allowed him to transform anything into a weapon . Spears and blades grew from the air, the ground, and the trees and shot toward Noah .

His true meaning was hard to translate into words, but Noah could sense the smell of a battlefield when his aura reached him . That individuality tasted like blood, sweat, death .

Bertha's belly shrunk as her aura spread in the environment . Pieces in the matter around her absorbed her energy and transformed into multicolored spheres that flew toward Noah .

They were proper bombs that threatened to release the dense energy contained in their fabric . Noah felt tinges of admiration surging inside him when he sensed how her aura affected the environment . The might of her attacks was something that he had to respect as a fellow destroyer .

Weapons and shockwaves flew toward Noah while he dealt with Gil's individuality . Most blades and spears crumbled due to the corrosive properties of his fiendish armor . Still, some of them managed to land on his skin anyway . Also, his spell couldn't stop the surges of energy .

Screeching noises echoed in the area as the black weapons landed on his skin . The spears and blades had lost a lot of power when they crossed the corrosive smoke, so they could only slide on Noah's body when they reached it .

'It has been so long,' Noah thought as he bathed in the pain that filled his mind .

Noah had overcome many struggles in his life, but it had been a long time since cultivators on his level could even attempt to damage him . However, those opponents could succeed in that task without relying on their teamwork .

There was a limit to the risk that he could feel when he ventured through danger zones . Noah always accepted their threats when he decided to explore specific areas .

Yet, the danger felt against opponents on his same level stirred his instincts in ways that environments couldn't match . The threat caused by the leader of the forest couldn't equal the drive that filled his mind in front of powerful enemies .

'How can I even decide to hold back in front of this power?' Noah thought as internal injuries continued to open inside him . 'Why would I disrespect such valiant warriors?'

Zach, Gil, and Bertha began to cast their next attack after they revealed their individuality . Their auras fused with their mental waves to give birth to powerful spells, but they felt forced to stop when they sensed a fourth law invading the area .

Noah roared, and his cry carried pure happiness . That battle made him feel at home . He recalled his early days as a lone cultivator and rejoiced when he sensed emotions that he had long forgotten .

Enemies that could threaten his life tried to block his path, and he didn't have any back-up or safe area where he could retreat . Noah felt utterly cornered, and that made him ecstatic .

He could finally feel drives that he had forgotten in the lower plane . He could sense his survival instincts stirring him to bring out every bit of his power .

A defeat meant death . That simple but pure feeling filled his mind and made him reveal the power of his ambition .

Zach, Gil, and Bertha had altered the matter in the area with their individuality, but they suddenly lost control of Noah's surroundings when his aura surged .

The matter around Noah began to evolve when his ambition altered its laws and forced them to transform into their best version . Some of the trees that his corrosive smoke had consumed also regrew in seconds as his aura spread .

Part of the shattered ground condensed and took the form of a sturdy terrain that exuded metallic properties . Noah's ambition forced everything affected by his law to evolve .

Still, the changes in the environment were only a consequence of his individuality . His law mostly affected his cultivation level, which rose until it crossed the halfway mark of the gaseous stage . His body also improved as his true meaning filled his tissues .

Noah continued to roar as that empowerment pushed his centers of power toward a superior level . The world even went dark for an instant when black flames came out of his mouth .

Dark matter was filling Noah's black vessels, so his flames came out far stronger than his actual level . The advantage given by his fourth center of power began to show its effects when he used both his innate abilities simultaneously .

The flames fused with the corrosive smoke released by his fiendish armor and fended off the shockwaves released by Bertha's law . The same happened to Gil's rhythm . His howl didn't manage to affect Noah's surroundings anymore after he revealed his ambition .

Only Zach's weapons managed to continue their flight toward Noah, but they found themselves unable to pierce his skin . The empowerment given by his ambition made his innate defense unbeatable by a single ability .

The trio remained focused on Noah and fended off his flames while his ambition spread in the environment, but shadows never stopped moving through the clouds during those moments .

Pure terror engulfed Gil's mind when Snore pointed its open mouth toward him . The Blood Companion had used the corrosive smoke of the second cloud to get close to the cultivator and prepare its innate ability in secret .

Bertha felt a similar sensation while she defended against the black flames . Cuts opened on her large belly when a shadow flew past her . She didn't even understand what had attacked her, but she sensed that her life was in danger .

Zach could only remain speechless when he saw that his companions were in danger . Tinges of anger also formed inside him since Noah had preferred to attack them instead of him .
