Underestimated, once again.
Edgar moved like lightning and released a terrifying burst of spiritual force concentrated as a blade straight towards Riddick. His face beamed with confidence and his eyes held a cruel glint in them as he attacked.
Spiritual energy is used to attack a soul and the only way to block the attack is to use one’s own spiritual energy as a defence barrier. Since Riddick was just a mortal so he obviously didn’t have the rich amount of spiritual energy required to block an immortal’s attack.
However, Edgar was petrified as he saw Riddick releasing the same white greyish glow which had previously devoured the heart of the Old guardian like a layer of protection around himself. The sword spiritual energy dispersed like mist as soon as it touched the white glow of Hell devour.
Edgar stood like a statue as he thought, “A technique capable of devouring life force as well as the spiritual energy of the user. Just who is he? Unless his position is really high, he won’t be rewarded with such a technique at his age and strength.”
Though his internal heart was in turmoil, that was only because he was afraid of consequences he has to face after killing Riddick. He was stunned repeatedly again and again by the power displayed by Riddick, however, never once in his heart did he doubt his victory.
What if the opponent was a scion of demon clan? What if he held techniques that he can only dream to possess? There was a gap of an entire realm between them and no matter how he weighted the odds, they were also always in his favour.
Riddick waved his hand a slender black string tied around his hand twisted like a snake and transformed into a long black staff. His eyes which held a mocking and carefree expression turned serious as his muscles tensed in anticipation of the fight.
Riddick knew that he had to be careful, even if he provoked the opponent and confused him. That was just manipulating the enemy. He himself knew that the opponent held a great power against which he had never contended head on.
Against a Beginner disciple he had full confidence but against a divine disciple, he was at a huge disadvantage. Though he held an advantage in terms of technique and mental fortitude, those were not enough to win in this situation.
The longer the fight continued, the worse his condition would be so he had already decided, he decided the path he would take to win even if the odds depended on the luck.
One strike, one second and one gamble – He would gamble it all in one strike, if it succeeds, he wins. If it fails, he losses. That was the way in which Riddick had the most chances to win against a divine disciple.
Riddick leg which were rooted to the ground trembled slightly and the surrounding air shook tremendously as an unbelievable amount of Qi violently shook the floor.
A loud sound rang like a thunder as the explosive dash of Riddick cracked the earth and blasted the walls of the entire mansion behind him.
Edgar was caught off guard. He had been alert but still how could he expect that Riddick would launch himself at that speed as soon as the fight began. He could see the black staff in Riddick’s hand and his mind had already calculated that Riddick had used most of his energy to close the gap at a speed surpassing his own.
If he can block that one attack then the victory will certainly be in his grasp. Considering that he was a Divine disciple receiving the attack of a mere mortal, none would care to dodge the attack but his instincts he had developed after years of constant slaughter and his inborn instincts as a God beast warned him at the most critical time.
“Dodge or die”
Thus, he too moved like lightning and took to the skies in hopes of dodging the attack. Everything happened like a blur and the next instant a faint wisp of white smoke left Riddick staff after a blast of terrifying fire energy shook the mansion and blasted off another part of it.
Edgar was stunned at the power exhibited by the staff, he knew that even at his level he was not a match to the power contained in that one attack but his astonishment soon turned into a mocking expression.
Riddick silently stood up and faced Edgar. His face was pale and his eyes held despair as he saw Edgar floating in mid air.
Suddenly Edgar understood everything and began to laugh madly. He clenched his stomach and laughed till he couldn’t contain himself and declared loudly.
“You Fool, you actually failed to land a strike after you used all of your energy on that one attack. I was worried for nothing. What if you are a genius? What if you have the aura? Now, you are nothing but an insect I can crush at my will.
You actually dared to be so haughty and even killed my servant. I will now show you the true meaning of despair. Forget about getting any kind of help kid, today you will die as I slowly squeeze the life out of your body and powder you to ash leaving no evidence behind.” Edgar sneered loudly and descended from the air.
“Haha……… Look! Your master is almost dead. Now it is your turn bitch”, Lyon roared as he launched a series of attacks on Sylvie who was also responding with similar attacks. She held a slender long sword in her hand and her glittered with power as she waved her sword to attack Lyon who was now beaming upon seeing Riddick’s condition.
Edgar walked further and grabbed Riddick’s by his neck and lifted him off the ground. His faced lacked any kind of kindness as he gazed at Riddick.
With a loud voice he declared, “I have decided your punishment you fucking bastard. I will rape that bitch and kill her in front of you and together we shall watch her die as I slice a part of her body from time to time.
Muddled with anger and pain, drowned in despair, you shall die a pitiful death. Don’t worry, you are one person who has treated me like shit in all my life and I will do all I can to repay my debt.”
Riddick eyes which were filled with despair and fear suddenly flickered with a deep red colour and his life less body suddenly sprang like a coiled python and attacked the unassuming Edgar like a demon.
His hand moved like a swift eagle and pierced Edgar like deadly spear right through his heart at the speed of lightning.
Edgar had seen Riddick move and he could some how feel that he would die the instant the coiling hand clad in yellow lightning touched his body. However, the instant he also understood that he had underestimated Riddick once again, he would have dodged if he could but he couldn’t as his body was forced to stay still by the pair of eyes which were exerting tons of pressure on his entire being.
“Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!”, Edgar screamed in pain and released his grip on Riddick.
Riddick dusted his shirt and lifted his gaze to look at Edgar who was now wildly trying to regenerate his heart. However, one could see that he was not too successful in his endeavour.
Riddick moved his body and grabbed Edgar by his head. His five fingers containing the entire head suddenly contracted and a terrifying sound of bone crackling spread in the room.
At some point Lyon and Sylvie had stopped their fight and were watching Riddick crush Edgar’s skull to death.
Suddenly Riddick laughed dryly and said, “Did you know Edgar? Truthfully I had no way to kill you in a fair fight so I thought of various methods to defeat you but who would have imagined that the very first strategy to fool you worked and you were even so foolish to careless let me get so close to you.
I advice you to stop your pointless struggle. No matter what you do, it is pointless at this point. I have already left my energy in your body and now it is interfering with your flow of divine energy.”
Edgar ground his teeth and shouted loudly, “Don’t get cocky brat. I will regenerate in a second and will then kill you like a pig.”
Riddick only smiled light as he released a faint white halo from his hand and said, “Ah! I would have liked to see you struggle more but unfortunately your time is up.”
A loud wail resounded in the the mansion as Edgar screamed at the top of his lungs. One could feel the pain he was enduring through his voice.
Lyon’s face turned pale as he saw Edgar wriggling like a slaughtered goat under Riddick’s hand and Riddick clutching Edgar with a thoughtful expression on his face.
“Pleaseeee, save me……. I will kill you bastard…… Please……..Bastard…… Dad……… No……..please….., any thing but this….. No ……wait……. No please ………… Ahhhhhhhhhh!”
Edgar cried, screamed and shouted as he struggled under Riddick’s hand but all to no avail. Not a hint of pity was seen on Riddick’s face expect for a thoughtful expression. It was as if he was observing a live specimen as it died under his experiment.
Finally after ten minutes, Edgar body twitched and the soul which resided in his body collapsed under the continuous assault of the Hell devour. Sighing lightly Riddick rose from the ground and thought aloud,
“Guess, I can’t kill divine disciples at my level of power. Luckily this guy was weak and stupid enough that even I could contain him. If it was any other divine disciple, then it would have been dangerous………”
Suddenly Riddick lifted his head and saw the pale faced Lyon, he turned his head and asked Sylvie, “Aren’t you done yet?”
Sylvie shook her head in a mocking way and said, “Its all because you asked me to keep him alive master. If I was allowed to kill him, then the fight would have ended the minute it started.
It seems I was too naive, all I know about are lethal and sure death techniques. I should try to learn something mediocre to deal with such situations.”
Lyon face was already pale but his body still shook as he heard Sylvie, She was playing around all this time because she was not allowed to use any powerful techniques. If what she used till now was not power, then what was her real power.
Riddick slowly walked towards Lyon and said in a neutral voice, “So Lyon was it? You know I actually don’t like to kill people so how about this? Let us both come to a compromise on this matter. If you accept a tiny request of mine then I will forget about this entire incident. How about it?”
Lyon face instantly lit up as he heard Riddick, his hands folded he fell to his knees and said sincerely, “My lord forgive me for my ignorance, if I had known earlier that you were such a great expert then I wouldn’t have even dared to speak against much less fight against you.
It was all Edgar’s fault. I was a Fool to listen to him but what can I do? I am but a weak purple badge bearer so please spare me my lord.”
Riddick laughed slightly and said, “Don’t worry, I am not going to kill you. You are going to be my eyes from now on so rest assured Lyon, you won’t die unless I wish otherwise.” A cruel light flickered in Riddick’s eyes as he said that sentence.
Lyon felt that something was wrong and wanted to see for himself what it was but a strange force suddenly erupted and sucked him into it.
Riddick gazed at the remaining corpses and said aloud, “Its about time, let’s go Sylvie.”
“Yes, master.” Sylvie responded.
The next second Riddick and Sylvie along with the mangled corpses and their badges as well as everything that proved that a fight happened disappeared into thin mist as the Yama realm enveloped the room.
The day was the day when a Gold bearer died but that was also a day when Riddick entered into the true ruling society of Deva palace.
