Chapter 1318: 1318
His instincts screamed in fear when he saw the massive Spider . Every cell in his body stirred him to escape as far as possible, but his eyes seemed glued to that majestic creature .

The Twelve-legged Queen's aura was one with the forest . At first, it would appear that the creature's existence had fused with the environment, but the Divine Deduction technique made Noah understand the truth behind that scene .

The beast's aura didn't copy the environment . The Spider had given the laws that it carried to the forest . That area was part of its being, and the creature could bend the matter around it as much as it wanted .

Noah was speechless . Magical beasts would elevate their existence as they grew through the ranks, but they didn't have individualities . The massive Spider could generate those effects with its sole passive influence .

The forest was the representation of the Twelve-legged Queen's aura . Even the resilient matter of the Immortal Lands couldn't escape from its influence .

Noah didn't doubt his instincts . He knew what had appeared in front of him . The Spider was a proper rank 8 magical beast . It was an existence that had grown past the simple state of a divine being!

'It's a world born from its existence,' Noah thought as countless pieces of information ran in his mind .

The Twelve-legged Queen was a living representation of the path past the seventh rank . It showed him what he had to strive for if he wanted to progress through the cultivation journey .

The effects of its aura were different from his dark world . Noah's technique relied on his higher energy to occupy an existing space and transform it according to his will . However, the beast didn't need any tool to generate superior results .

The alterations caused by the Spider's aura weren't a temporary phenomenon . The matter of the forest would continue to belong to its existence unless a stronger law conquered it .

The changes in the matter showed some flaws in their structure . Its laws still strived to enter Heaven and Earth's system, but Noah linked that to the Twelve-legged Queen's level and species .

Cultivator would generate even stronger effects with their individuality . The same would apply to creatures on a higher level, but even those fainter alterations were enough to give Noah an idea of the path in front of him .

'My existence needs to become a world of its own,' Noah concluded as he deactivated the Divine Deduction technique . 'A single law flying through an array of true meanings is not enough . My individuality must become as powerful as the higher plane . '

Noah's black hole rotated as fast as it could in that deadly situation . The rank 8 beast's aura tried to suppress him and make him helpless, but his many methods had granted him the ability to move .

The dark matter weakened the natural influence radiated by the Spider, and his black hole managed to salvage his body's freedom . The trio also distracted the Twelve-legged Queen, so most of its aura was converging on them .

Only the leftovers of the Spider's aura reached Noah, but he had to deploy all his methods to fend it off . His body felt sluggish anyway, but he was glad that he could still move .

"Why did you challenge me?" The Twelve-legged Queen said as low screeches accompanied its human words .

Its voice generated shockwaves that seeped through the fiendish armor and made Noah's insides churn . He felt as if hammers were striking his organs and didn't want to stop anytime soon .

Rivers of blood flew out of Noah's mouth as he forced himself to remain silent . The dark matter around him was hiding his presence, but he didn't dare to underestimate the awareness of a magical beast in the eighth rank .

The Twelve-legged Queen was in the lower tier, but that didn't give Noah the chance to take the matter lightly . Instead, he had one more reckless action to perform before he could run away .

Simply gaining an escape route wasn't enough for Noah . Gil would track him as soon as he left, and he couldn't deal with the trio when they worked together . Moreover, his knowledge was still too shallow when it came to the Immortal Lands, but he planned to solve all his problems with his next move .

"We didn't," Zach stammered an answer and closed his eyes as he struggled to finish his line, "Your Majesty . "

Even the members of an extremist faction had to show their respect toward such a powerful magical beast . Beliefs didn't matter anymore when their opponent could reduce them into a pulp with the sole intensity of its aura .

"I heard the challenge," The Twelve-legged Queen continued . "Magical beasts don't lie . Are you comparing me to humans?"

Those words seeped deep inside the trio's beliefs, but they could only play along in that situation . It didn't matter that Madame Canson had sealed an agreement with that creature . The Spider could still kill them if they made it angry .

"I wouldn't dare, your Majesty," Zach continued . "There is a fourth- . "

Zach didn't manage to complete his line because dark matter engulfed the area and suppressed his words . The sudden appearance of the dark world surprised even the Spider, but the aura innately radiated by its body destroyed the higher energy before it could reach it .

The Twelve-legged Queen didn't feel anything when it saw the dark matter filling the area . It didn't sense any danger coming from that almost liquid substance . Actually, that higher energy carried properties similar to its forest .

Noah had altered the aura of the dark world to make it resemble the forest . His imitation appeared poorly-executed, but it managed to make him gain a few instants .

The Spider understood that something was off when it saw ice spreading on the edges of the dark world . A rocky layer also formed on top of the expanding frost, and the black cloud shrunk to transform into a giant Snake .

Snore engulfed the area with its huge body, but the Spider didn't hesitate to throw one of its legs toward the beast . However, when its limb touched the rocky layer, the Blood Companion's figure opened and dispersed into a storm of dark matter .

The Twelve-legged Queen didn't think that a cultivator was behind that attack . It didn't even recognize the dark world as a technique since Noah had given it Snore's shape .

The Spider believed that a unique magical beast had chosen to attack its lair but had retreated once it sensed the forest leader's power . The Twelve-legged Queen then unfolded its aura to search for the invader, but it focused back on the cultivators after it didn't find anything .

Still, the creature noticed that something had happened during the previous events . The trio was a duo now . Bertha had disappeared .
