Chapter 280
Noah's element was exposed as soon as the meeting began .

The cultivators around him released surprised gasps but Logan kept his stern expression .
'I bet that it was him that discovered it . '
Noah sighed, he understood that he had been granted a meeting because of his peculiarity .
"I'm not an invader, I was just passing by . "
He uncaringly answered the girl, he had really done nothing wrong that time .
"Anyone that trespass our borders is an invader, we are at war . "
The girl firmly answered, she seemed used to her position .
'Why did they put such a weakling in charge?'
Noah could clearly discern her level .
She had a rank 2 body, a rank 1 dantian, and a rank 1 sea of consciousness, she was just a weakling in his eyes .
"War? I can only see cultivators in the human ranks, you are not in the position to be at war with the Empire . "
The Shandal Empire had a God as a commander, such a weak country couldn't call itself a worthy enemy .
Noah's words caused enraged gazes to be shot at him, the cultivators around him completely disapproved his stance .

"Our ancestor died to limit the invading forces to the human ranks, we are one of the few countries that still oppose the Empire . "
The girl proudly declared .
'Limit to the human ranks? Is that even possible?'
Noah was confused .
The sheer power of the Empire was enough to submit any other country that he had seen, he couldn't understand how such a weak nation could survive thanks to the sacrifice of a cultivator .
"I understand your confusion . Our ancestor was a mighty rank 6 cultivator that imbued the formation around the country with his own life . Not even the God of the Empire can break it . "
The girl's eyes were filled with pride as she told that story, the two cultivators on her sides lowered their heads as soon as the ancestor was named .
However, Noah saw things differently .
"So, he basically created a large prison for you all to live in, right?"
He could accept that a rank 6 cultivator could create wonders, Eccentric Thunder had built a seemingly endless world after all .
Yet, he didn't see anything worthy of praise, the actions of that mighty ancestor were only a temporary measure against the Empire .
Formations, runes, and inscriptions suffered from the passage of time, nothing was eternal .
The God of the Empire had just to wait for the defensive formation to lose some power before that country would be conquered .

"How dare you!"
The girl stood from her throne and pointed a hand at Noah .
"The ancestor sacrificed everything to keep his offspring alive . I have his blood in my veins, I won't allow anyone to taint his name! Men!"
The girl ordered and the cultivators around her neared Noah without hesitation .
However, Noah released his pressure again and his figure started to be surrounded by black smoke .
His eyes shone with a cold light as he answered the girl .
"I made myself clear already, try to imprison me and I'll use my life to kill as many of you as I can . "

Noah had dropped any kind of pretense already, he was using his own life as a threat .
There was no hate between them after all, he didn't believe that they would sacrifice themselves just to kill a simple nobody .
"I really don't care about your situation but all I see is a weak girl leading a bunch of prisoners . The sacrifice of your ancestor means nothing to me . "
Noah continued to speak, he made his stance clear to everyone in the hall .
The powerful cultivators next to her became incredibly enraged after Noah's mocking and shot toward him at an unimaginable speed .

"Stop . "
However, the girl softly ordered and the two men blocked their attacks just in time .
Noah casually watched at the two fists that were standing in front of his face and turned his attention toward the girl .
"So, what do you even want from me? I just want to go on my way, I really don't have any business with the Empire and your war . "
The cultivators retracted their fists and returned to their position next to the young girl .
She sighed and began to explain the situation of her country .
"Even if the formation blocks any cultivator that has a rank 4 dantian or above, the Empire still sends soldiers to fight us . We would appreciate your help in the war . "
'It was about my element after all . '
Any organization that Noah had met wanted to exploit his superior battle prowess .
He was a cultivator of the darkness element after all, anyone would want him as an asset .
"I'm just a rank 2 cultivator, I can't influence your war that much . Also, I don't have a reason to help you . "
If the war was limited to the human ranks, then cultivators in the third rank were the strongest assets .
Noah was strong for his level but he still paled in front of cultivators with a stronger dantian, he chose to follow Logan because he couldn't defeat his group after all .

"We need all the help that we can get and…"
The girl spoke, hesitating a bit toward the end of her sentence .
"We have a spell of the darkness element in our inventory . "
Noah's eyes lit up at those words .
Spells of his element were rare, it was Heaven and Earth's way to balance the power of the rare aptitudes .
'Even the academy didn't have that many spells of my element, most of them were just rank 0 or 1 . '
Noah was enticed by that opportunity, he would gladly enlarge the number of spells in his possession .
He asked, he wanted to be sure that the spell matched his standards .
"Up to the fourth rank . "
The girl promptly answered, she seemed well aware of the resources of her country .
'Fourth rank! It will be useful even in the heroic ranks and having its diagram as a reference will help me in my future creations!'
"Deal, give me the spell and I'll join your war for some time . "
