Chapter 1548 1548. Taunts

Noah didn't take that decision lightly. He had already considered that the Crystal City and its allies would do everything in their power to hunt him down.

Yet, that partially worked in his favor. Noah didn't want his return into the human domain to mark the beginning of a peaceful period. He needed struggles to continue growing.

Moreover, Noah had finally touched the eighth rank. It was time to step up his game and start messing with organizations. It was impossible to seize resources that mattered at his new level without affecting other large forces.

Noah also was in desperate need of energy. His unstable substance was almost about to run out, and the weakness that he felt affected the empowerment given by his ambition.

The insane might expressed by the Demonic Form even worsened his condition. The ambition had covered most of the expenses of his superior power, but his time was running out.

Madame Canson tried to free herself from Noah's grasp and the energies that suppressed her existence, but her efforts amounted to nothing. The black flames consumed her figure and brought her nutrients to Noah.

The black hole quickly absorbed those nutrients and began to purify them. Madame Canson was almost exhausted, but the power carried by her existence managed to bring Noah some comfort.

Still, that wasn't enough. Noah's cultivation level began to fall even after his black hole started to send the new energy toward his tissues. His fourth center of power didn't know how it could fix his condition.

'I can't return to the seventh rank,' Noah calculated before glancing at the sky.

The battle against Madame Canson had dispersed the darkness accumulated in the sky. Noah could see the remains of his pack fighting against the few cultivators left, but his eyes didn't stop at that scene.

His gaze went higher and landed on the sparks accumulated in the sky. Heaven and Earth were still ready to unleash their might, but they didn't do anything even after the battle ended.

'What are you waiting for?' Noah wondered as anxiety built in his mind.

The battlefield was a mess. Noah's pack had almost defeated the cultivators. Those underlings couldn't match Fergie and the other magical beasts after losing Madame Canson's empowerment.

The Eternal Snakes were even better off. Noah's battle had turned the palace into dust, so Monsieur Evan couldn't draw power from the many defenses anymore. He had to rely on his existence to fend off the enemy pack, but he was inevitably suffering from the difference in numbers and power.

Noah didn't dare to jump among the Eternal Snakes. Monsieur Evan was their prey and trying to steal it was akin to turning those magical beasts into enemies.

Noah couldn't even decide to fight the Eternal Snakes. He didn't feel powerless against them anymore, but his ambition was running out. He didn't know if his current power would last long enough to kill a few of them and escape.

His only real chance to gain a massive amount of energy was a sudden Tribulation, but Heaven and Earth had yet to attack. They even seemed about to retreat when they sensed that Noah's cultivation level was falling.

Noah knew that he couldn't let that happen. Falling back into the seventh rank would trigger drawbacks that he had no hope to endure. He had to find a way to force Heaven and Earth's hand.

"Heaven! Earth!" Noah shouted in a desperate attempt to attract the sparks' attention. "Did you forget about me? I thought you wanted to destroy me!"

The sparks continued to disperse. Noah's taunt had no effects on the Tribulation, but that only made him chose sharper words.

"Heaven! Earth!" Noah shouted again. "What do you think about my current power? I thought you wanted me to be a counselor!"
