Author notes : Hi guys, gsdreddy here. I know I said there will be no chapter today but I decided to do it. My reason is simple, as a long time leecher who has been lurking around all translation groups ( most of them ) I know very well how depressed readers will be when there are no chapter releases.
I know the feeling when Great Overlord Ren missed some recently due to server problems so I did this chapter for my readers. My reader base is very small and I can’t even compare myself to a hundredth of Overlord Ren’s greatness so forgive me if somebody felt offended that I compared myself to Ren.
Note: No offence to any Translation groups or Original writers, I admire all of you for your work.
I decided to share a small happiness of mine, we reached a small mile stone of 5000 daily page views yesterday. I know it is a very small number but I feel great happiness for every single view and comment because it means one more reader has read my work and cares about it.
Enough of my rant ( for now ) so ENJOY.
The leader shouted angrily ‘ Who the fuck do you think you are woman? I am Baleda, the leader of Sirius tribe. Take one more step forward then I will feed you to my hounds ‘
Standing behind Vera, both me and my father were watching the man known as Baleda with an astonished expression. This man is definitely a fool, how can he still not understand his position even after seeing us drop from the sky or did he still not comprehend the situation because he refuses to believe that she is an immortal.
Vera standing before us listened to the man and was calmly observing the surroundings. By now all strong warriors and elders were gathered around us. Vera with a calm look on her face suddenly made a sweeping motion with her right hand. The entire house of the clan leader along with everyone gathered around him were directly turned to dust leaving behind Baleda who was now shaking with fear seeing the power gap between them.
Vera calmly said ‘ Baleda, I killed all those people just now because of your earlier words. I already said to you once that we are going to be your new rulers. Do you understand it yet ‘
Baleda gulped at those words and said hesitatingly ‘ My lady, this tribe has been ruled by my bloodline for countless generations so how can we give up the right to rule just like that. You are an almighty being who has reached the peak of training in the way of heavens so please spare us, a poor tribe and choose a tribe which can support your needs ‘
Vera was fuming at the words of this man and she said ‘ Very well Baleda you have shown me that you can’t understand my good will, so die ‘. Saying this she killed him with a sweep of her hand. Turning towards the now frozen leaders of the tribe she said in a loud voice.
‘ Heirs of Baleda and previous lords of the tribe assemble here and I promise I won’t kill you. Don’t even think of hiding else I will kill you all ‘
Soon some ten individuals assembled beside the leaders who were watching us from a distance. Seeing the assembled individuals she said in a menacing tone
‘ I am giving you a choice, leave this tribe or die in my hands. You are to leave this tribe along with every last infant of your bloodline and never return to the tribe. What you will do later is none of my business but any action you take against this tribe indirectly or directly will result in me killing you all. Do you understand ‘
The people were watching Vera with an ashen face and after hearing her their faces became pale and some women in the back even started sobbing. I was unfazed by this because just recently we lost everything that belonged to us, now some body is loosing everything to give us their everything. This is how the world works I have long since given up on the ideal image of peaceful coexistence between humans. Greed being a part of human nature we can never exist without any trouble so we have to be steel hearted otherwise sooner or later we will be crushed again.
That day the entire family of Baleda along with several of their loyal servants left the tribe. We let them take their valuables because we felt some pity for them. After they left Vera called for an assembly of all the clan leaders of different clans present in the tribe, soon a large ground was covered with people ranging to about a few hundreds.
Vera spoke in a loud voice ‘ The matter regarding the ruling clan is now concluded ‘ Pointing at my father Vera said ‘ This person is Thenadier Elsevier. He will be the lord ruling over you people from now on, he is a capable warrior of eighth rank and holds plenty of experience in maintaining a territory so you guys will prosper under his rule.
I will be training in seclusion in the mountain beside us, so you are prohibited from entering into the higher regions of the mountain. My sessions of training can range to a hundred years at a time so my disciple, the third son of Thenadier will hold the highest authority in my absence. His authority exceeds the authority of Thenadier and can directly overrule it.
The higher regions of the mountain will be my abode and anyone is prohibited from entering into it including you Thenadier. The only exception is my disciple who will be training along with me. Enough, I said everything I want to say, you can talk to them regarding mortal affairs Thenadier ‘
After saying this she took my hand and directly flew to the top of the mountain and landed near the top, the mountain was not too large but was at least 5000 metres high so this was considered a fairly large mountain. She then touched a rocky part of mountain and the mountain gave way for her by opening a large tunnel.
After a few minutes a large complex cave system with many rooms and an entrance on the top which directly opened near the peak of mountain was created. She then went on to draw complex magical formations inside the cave system which nearly took a day even for her. After completing her work she then took out a shiny stone out of no where, again carving some formations on it after which she directly inserted the stone into the centre of magical formation.
The entire formation brilliantly lit up and later started emanating a dim light, finishing her work she released a sigh of relief. Seeing me intently observing the formation she began explaining me about its purpose.
‘ Riddick, this formation is an advance magic formation with multiple purposes. It is definitely not possible for any person in this dimension including the higher planes to decode or construct it. This formation has two major purposes, first purpose of this formation is that it totally isolates this cave from this world thus no one can sense you unless you leave this cave.
The second purpose is that this formation has been integrated with a few properties of Void making it an ideal place where you can train to your content. This formation has supplementary support for your attribute, all its benefits will be explained by Void as you become strong enough to use it.
This formation also naturally accumulates natural energy making this cave a high energy concentration zone. So with this you have all tools needed for your training, the higher level spells will be explained to you by Void ‘
I became confused by Vera’s words she was speaking in a different way, I could understand that she was leaving again but somehow it felt different so I asked her ‘ Are you leaving again Vera ‘
She spoke in a sad voice ‘ Yes, I will be leaving and won’t return for a long time. This is the reason why I made such an extensive formation, I am sorry Riddick but you have to be on your own for a while ‘
I was instantly startled at this confession because I always thought that she would always be with me, protecting me and helping me with my training. Guess I was too naive, I always knew that this day was inevitable but I was too foolish and thought that she would always be with me.
I was honestly a little angry at her but I knew that none of this is her fault so I asked in a calm voice ‘ Why are you leaving so urgently Vera and where are you going? ‘
Vera replied thinking deeply ‘ Riddick I have some things I have to do as soon as possible so I have to leave immediately. I will be going to the divine planes so you can meet me as soon as you can advance past the peak divine disciple stage. ‘
I was stunned at this answer and asked ‘ Vera how long do you think this will take? I am not even a beginner divine disciple yet, It will take many decades before I reach that stage then how many hundreds or thousands of years should it take before I enter into divine planes. Why can’t you come here in between Vera? If you can come once can’t you come later ‘
Vera sadly said ‘ There are certain circumstances which prevent me from taking frequent trips. You need not concern yourself regarding this. I will give you some advice, follow it.
‘ Riddick train hard and always remember that only hard work pays you back. That whip I gave you is a very special weapon named Yama and it has power which can’t be compared to any weapon so meditate and train with it. Void has many uses which you can utilise only upon reaching certain level of strength so become strong quickly. Never despair that you will take eternity to reach the peak of power, you won’t because you have strong support in the form of Void, you can reach it quickly with diligent training. ‘
I was listening quietly to everything Vera spoke and said in a calm voice ‘ Thank you for your advise Vera, I will follow it diligently but I will ask you a question and you have to answer me honestly Vera ‘
‘ Alright, I will ‘
‘ Why did you kiss me Vera? ‘
She answered with a lovely expression on her face ‘ Because I love you Riddick ‘
‘ Why do you love me? I mean you have no reason to actually love me, we have known each other for only five years we have no……….. ‘
Before I could finish my sentence my lips were locked with her lips, tasting her sweet scent I kissed her in a daze. Removing her lips she answered me
‘ Don’t think seriously about this matter, everything will become apparent when time arrives ‘
‘ Good bye Riddick ‘ saying this she vanished in a second.
I began thinking excitedly ‘ So you are not going to answer Vera. Don’t worry I will find you soon enough to obtain my answer ‘
