Chapter 610: 610
The situation on the coastlines didn't take much to stabilize .

The heroic assets of the four countries fought bravely to exterminate the remains of the pack of winged beasts .

They aimed to remove any trace of that species from the Mortal Lands, the cultivators couldn't allow intelligent creatures to survive .

Groups of rank 4 cultivators took care of the rank 3 and 4 winged beasts while those in the fifth rank were left to the higher-ups to handle .

The powerhouses of the four nations surveilled the trend of the battles for a few weeks before intervening .

They couldn't do all the work, the assets under them had to gain experience in handling crises like that .

The aim of rank 6 cultivators was to leave the Mortal Lands and reach the plane of the deities, meaning that they would eventually leave their organizations behind .

So, they had to be sure that their organizations would have what they need to remain in power .

Their lifetime's efforts in the Mortal Lands couldn't go to waste because of their departure, and their inheritances alone wouldn't ensure the well-being of their underlings .

Only knowledgeable warriors could keep a country in power after the departure of their leaders, and, to do that, they needed experience in facing any kind of threat .

The crisis ended when the powerhouses intervened .

The five rank 6 cultivators of the four nations swept the piece of Immortal Lands and killed all the winged beasts that had survived the attack of their underlings .

The species that had made the new continent tremble for months met its extinction .

The war ended with the death of the last specimen of the pack of winged creatures, and the four countries could finally evaluate their gains and losses .

Countless human assets and structures had been lost in those months, but the spoils of war brought thousands of valuable materials back to the inventories of the four nations .

Their assets had been weakened, and their growth delayed, but time would eventually make up for those losses .

More promising cultivators would appear in the years after the crisis and would benefit from the resources obtained in the war .

Some of them would reach the heroic ranks and take the place of the dead heroic cultivators .

The surviving assets would become stronger due to the experience gained during the crisis, creating a generation of warriors forged through the flames of war .

Of course, it would take decades for those events to happen, the four nations had yet to stabilize their territories now .

The fauna had migrated toward coastlines, leaving only strong creatures in the central territories .

The center of the continent had seen the battle of beings at the peak of the heroic ranks though .

Its environment had changed forever, and it would take time for those lands to stabilize and to give birth to lifeforms again .

Mutations were bound to appear in those areas due to the influence of such powerful existences, but that was another event that would only happen in the future .

The focus of the heroic assets was to restore their sources of income and evaluate if the invasion had modified some environments in ways that they could exploit .

The Hive was happy to discover that the toxicity of the area next to the forest had diminished by a large margin due to the migration of many packs of magical beasts .

Many precious materials hidden among the poisonous creatures and rivers could finally be plundered, making that land another source of income for the Coral archipelago .

The Azure plain though suffered a lot during that period, and its terrain had been tainted with the blood of countless powerful creatures .

It would take time for its ground to absorb all those nutrients and gave birth to Azure Credits again .

However, the purity of those magical plants couldn't be assessed so soon, there was a high chance that all those contaminations would affect the purity of the Azure Credits .

Noah mostly ignored those events .

He was an expert in the magical beasts' field, and his insights in the matter were kept in high regard by the other elders .

Yet, the fauna was too chaotic in that period, he could only make a list of the scenarios that were most likely to happen .

His obligations toward the Hive ended there, and he simply focused on making the best out of his remaining time with June .

June obtained her sparring session with Noah, but their level was far too different .

June had just become a complete heroic cultivator, but Eccentric Thunder's inheritance and inscribed items gave her a sturdy foundation on which she could build a suitable combat style .

However, Noah had faced and overcome those issues when she was still in the human ranks, no amount of backing could make up for his achievements .

After all, Noah could defend against the attacks of solid stage cultivators, there was nothing that June could do to pierce his defenses .

The battle was completely one-sided, Noah simply walked through the lightning storm unleashed by June, nothing she did was able to dent his powerful defensive methods .

When Noah reached her, he lifted her large and metallic inscribed hat and caressed her face while kissing her forehead .

He couldn't attack her, his physical strength was too threatening for the frail body of the cultivators .

Yet, that gesture was enough to put an end to her offensive .

The difference between their power was evident at that point .

\"I will definitely reach you one day . \"

June said when the battle was over .

She was a bit annoyed by how easily Noah had defeated her, but she didn't want to waste the precious time that she had with him .

Noah had told her that the forces of the Papral nation had spotted him .

The news of his return would undoubtedly reach the Elbas family then, and both of them expected the Royals to knock at the Hive's doors soon .

\"You must, or I'll leave you behind . \"

Noah smiled when he answered .

June noticed the trace of helplessness contained in his tone, but she understood him .

Noah's ambition would drive him toward the higher ranks of the cultivation world, she had no doubts that he would leave for the Immortal Lands one day .

She couldn't affect that behavior, and she didn't want to do that either .

The man that had given her a future was the most determined and driven cultivator in the entirety of the Mortal Lands, she would never attempt to change the qualities that made him so exceptional .

June laid her head on Noah's chest and murmured words that resembled a vow of some sort .

\"I love you, Noah Balvan . No matter how far you'll go, you will always be able to find me chasing you . Yet, I promise you that I'll surpass you one day . \"

Noah felt June squeezing his robe when she said that, and he couldn't help but hug her to convey his feelings too .

\"I love you, June Ballor . My life won't be the same after your departure, but I know that this feeling won't fade . Be sure to reach me wherever I'll go . \"
