Chapter 125: Chains From the Void (Part 2/2)

Translator: Strivon

An Weng was never one to reject order, but he demanded for order to be under his control .

Right now, he had focused all of his energy on controlling the probing process . He was completely unable to attend to the internals of the Human-Faced Arachnid . . . And even if he could, it would be useless!

An Weng had once tried to filter through the chaos within the Human-Faced Arachnid to create a complete model . However, he had failed against his expectations . This was because chaos was the nature of the Human-Faced Arachnid; it could not be altered .

As such, he had to use the kite-line that was Zheng Xiao to endure the chaos within the Human-Faced Arachnid and maintain his basic intellect . Otherwise, he would be completely suppressed by the Human-Faced Arachnid's instincts .

But now, An Weng actually sensed the power of order within the Human-Faced Arachnid . He never once doubted the results of his own research, so the answer became clear to him .

An external power had made its way inside!

There was no doubt about it . This power came from Mr . Spoil of War! This power had already been crushed to pieces by the devouring force of the Human-Faced Arachnid, but it had somehow reassembled itself .

Chaos once shattered would only become more chaotic . There was only one explanation that this power was able to restore itself . Its chaos was just a disguise . It was just a clever emulation .

This made An Weng think of the Faith Product he had developed not too long ago . The Faith Product was merely a reflection of his train of thought . He originally wanted to carefully sort through and gather much more information . However, Fairchild's appearance destroyed his initial plans .

From that moment onward, the situation grew more and more outrageous . The situation now had long since been unrecognizable .

Though the simple recollection of memory was meaningless, the clear context of details was able to help one sort through their thought process . Tracing back from this train of thought, An Weng finally confirmed that a mistake had appeared in his previous judgment .

The Human-Faced Arachnid he consumed was not a spoil of war . It was an imitated product; perhaps it was one of the Faith Products he had made . As far as he knew, that little toy had changed owners today . It had made its way to the hands of a certain teenager . . .  

From the taste of what he had consumed, this little toy was more advanced than his original version . It was to the extent that it could pass off as the real deal . This did not surprise An Weng . However, this teenager possessed some kind of inconceivable power of order . Additionally, through some special ability, this teenager stagnated the changes with the unbalanced state of the Scales of Truth time and time again .

Ouyang Chen should be expressing his thanks to this teenager, otherwise, he might not have had the time to erect his Logic World .

However, An Weng also recalled that this teenager should have been isolated from the Logic World . . .

Of course, this mystical little fellow made people furious!

With his attention deviating in direction, An Weng's efforts of probing the mental plane was all wasted; he lost the sensing trail that could have led him to the Gate of Truth . Yet An Weng did not let fury and related emotions take over him . Instead, he cast the probing waves in the complete opposite direction .

An Weng did a self-examination toward his Human-Faced Arachnid, locking onto the element of order incompatible with the chaos and pushing it back . . . If he did not get rid of the interfering element, all the searching and probing would be useless .  

The vibrating sound of shaking chains increased in clarity and its corresponding information continued to join and assemble . In the end, dark chains were formed, twisting, bending, and extending . It pierced the chaos housed within Number 3 and shot out countlessly linked barbs in all directions . These barbs seeped everywhere within the Human-Faced Arachnid .  

The situation was now much more troublesome than An Weng had initially judged .

In this form, the power of order declared its invasion toward the Human-Faced Arachnid . The end of the chains was long; it extended deeply into the depths of the mental plane . It was without a doubt that the mystical boy was connected at the other end .

Wasn't his name Luo Nan?

An Weng's thoughts coiled and knotted, forming an incorporeal chant . He had seen Luo Nan's basic information before, so locking onto Luo Nan's aura through the Evolution Field was more than enough for a Secretbound First Oblatum .

A highly fatal secret curse was gradually forming . The next time An Weng locked onto Luo Nan, he would unleash his curse without the slightest hesitation . The barrier between the mental and the material would be forcefully destroyed and all his worries would be resolved .

This was not the smartest way to go about things but it was the most direct . Even though this would put him in a dangerously weak state as a soul parasitically attached within the Human-Faced Arachnid, he was going for it .

An Weng's mind followed along the chains . With the aid of the Human-Faced Arachnid, the sealed and chaotic structure of the Logic World's space did not hinder him at all . In the process, An Weng accidentally affected the plane of reality but now a new change was occurring to the situation .

He had an approximate recollection of Luo Nan's last location before the Logic World was erected . He locked onto that direction and scanned the plane of reality . An Weng was confident that he would lock onto his target in two seconds .

The probing waves were able to smoothly cut out of the Logic World . It was hard for Ouyang Chen to restrict the probing power of the Human-Faced Arachnid . However, in the next moment, the external information that came over was not the scenery of the metropolis . Instead, it was a starry sky that made one dazed and lost; it was just that strange .

An Went was dazed for just a moment before he soon woke up . The starry sky was the projection of someone's consciousness .

He had made contact with Luo Nan . This boy seemed to be short of live combat experience . There were practically no counter detection measures on the exchange of the mental plane .  

In an instant, the two sides were engaging in combat with short-reach weapons . . . short eh?

An Weng was just about to unleash his deadly curse but he had no choice but to stop . He never imagined that the scene of this person's consciousness would be this vast and grand . Indeed, though the power within was near non-existent, this sort of manifestation was an inconceivable accomplishment .  

This was merely the reconstruction of Luo Nan's perception . An Weng needed to trace back to the source and find the core of Luo Nan's consciousness .

Yet behind this scene of a starry sky were the auras of countless living beings . They appeared here as stars and together they established a hazy and vast structure .

Moreover, the scene that was formed from Luo Nan's observations and perception could not described as just vast . Luo Nan fully utilized the mental plane and this included the Logic World's reality . Though the starry sky was smooth and uniform, if one looked at the whole, it was actually filled with complicated and warped details . It was like a labyrinth .

As for Luo Nan's core consciousness, it was hidden behind layers and layers of curtains . It was difficult to discern its location .

If Luo Nan had created this starry sky structure by force, An Weng could collide against different sides to find his target via feedback . However, within this realm of pure perception, the more he looked, the easier it was for Luo Nan to lead him by the nose .

In addition, from the perspective of a Human-Faced Arachnid, this environment was like a pot of soup with a smell that pervaded everywhere . The Human-Faced Arachnid began to get restless from an instinctual great terror . This spread An Weng's power thin .

An Weng made a quick decision . He gave up probing on the plane of reality to stop wasting time . . . There were still the chains .

The power of the dark chains continued to increase, restraining the chaotic nature of the Human-Faced Arachnid . It made Number 3 feel uneasy, so An Weng simply strengthened this instinct of Number 3 and had it search by following the chains backward .

In any case, the master of these chains had to undoubtedly be Luo Nan . . . . Huh?

Number 3's probing suddenly halted . An enormous sense of oppression came at this very moment . It was like a storm of flames that came screaming from the end of the chains . The sudden increase in external pressure heated the chaotic essence of the Human-Faced Arachnid into a pot of boiling oil .

If the Human-Faced Arachnid possessed awareness, the boiling of its instinct would surely cause it to scream loudly .

It would scream danger, danger!

This common yet different terrifying force came crashing down . Number 3's combat instincts were pressed to its limits . A battle through space exploded out in an instant .

In the face of the Human-Faced Arachnid's boiling instinct, An Weng's control ability plummeted to the minimum . He became like a small boat that was rocking up and down within a sea of lava . He could capsize at any moment .

The situation was once again out of his control .

He suddenly understood . Luo Nan absolutely was not on the other end of the chains . Instead, it was another damned Human-Faced Arachnid . . . And an extremely powerful one at that!

How could this be?
