Chapter 558: Scattered Entropy Ghost
“Are these people… all dead?”
Laura opened her eyes wide.
The more Gu Qing Shan looked at these dead bodies that maintained the same stance, the creepier he felt.
Noticing the trembling on his shoulder, he changed the subject: “They look a lot like I do, the only difference is the pale blue skin”
“Of course they do. Old G.o.ds created civilization in their own image, so the human form is highly welcomed in all the 900 million World Layers” Laura was easily caught by the new subject.
“Then what did you originally look like?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“Ah, like this—-”
Saying so, a small pair of dark green wings appeared on Laura’s back.
“The trend this year is dark green wings, since this color is mature and this year was my 12th birthday, I decided to dye it a bit—— but my wings were originally crystal green” she said.
Gu Qing Shan thought about it briefly and asked: “They’re both green, is there a difference?”
“…What a bore, I really can’t talk about this topic with you”
Laura flapped her wings a bit before retracting them.
She was already feeling a bit less fearful.
“I say—-” the black horse stopped and spoke up.
Both Gu Qing Shan and Laura s.h.i.+fted their attention to it.
“Are you two really not out for a stroll? In such a dangerous situation, I briefly felt an air of anxiety, but why did it disappear suddenly?” he asked confusedly.
“Truthfully, I have already thought that I would die several times already, but I am still alive”
Laura put her hand on Gu Qing Shan’s shoulder and continued.
“——so I am completely numb now. I do not know how I managed to live up to this point, so I might as well not think about it since he is here”
“Then what if he’s also stumped?” the black horse asked.
“Then I would not come up with anything good either, I will simply lay down and die” Laura replied.
Seeing how Laura wasn’t scared anymore, Gu Qing Shan took a closer look at these corpses.
Urging the horse to move forward, Gu Qing Shan tried putting his hand on the forehead of one of the standing corpses.
Using his spirit energy, he scanned through the corpse’s body.
The corpse’s organs were perfectly fine without a single internal or external wound.
The corpse itself still had a bit of warmth.
It seems they didn’t die too long ago.
If that was the case…
Could it be an attack that affects the soul vessel?
This might be related to the Daemons of h.e.l.l.
“How exactly is an Entropy Ghost created?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
“My father knows, but I tried asking him about it once and he couldn’t eat anything for that entire day” Laura said.
Gu Qing Shan looked at the Earth sword.
The Earth sword answered: 「 It’s an amalgamation of various ghosts and h.e.l.lsp.a.w.ns, you can imagine what that means by yourself, I don’t want to talk about that process 」
“Fine then, another question. After an Entropy Ghost dies, will it completely disappear? I know it’s a mix of several Daemons from Huang Quan” Gu Qing Shan asked again.
「 Not sure, there’s no precedent of an Entropy Ghost being killed 」the Earth sword said.
“That’s right, it’s likely that no one knows the answer to that” Laura agreed.
Gu Qing Shan recalled what happened when he killed the Entropy Ghost.
It was completely disintegrated by my sword phantoms, disappearing without a trace.
While everyone here died because of a soul vessel attack.
Ghosts and revenants are the best at attacking soul vessels.
Then, could a new type of Ghost have been created from the Entropy Ghost’s body?
Or is it because this world was originally being attacked by some other Ghosts?
—-no, the Old G.o.d’s barrier should be really tight, that level of power isn’t something [Origin] can arbitrarily think of various methods to deal with in such a short time.
Gu Qing Shan suddenly circulated his entire reservoir of spirit energy, erupting with ready to fight with his full power.
The mutated 5-Elemental Lightning spirit energy he possessed circulated all around his body, making his body glow in a blue-white electrical aura.
Since Lightning spirit energy has the Smiting property, it dealt with increased damage to ghosts.
“What are you doing?” Laura was surprised.
“Ghosts are naturally afraid of lightning, so I want to try and eliminate a possibility”
Then Gu Qing Shan shouted: “Scatter!”
The Chao Yin sword, Earth sword, and Six Paths Great Mountain sword all scattered in different directions, flying out of sight in the blink of an eye.
The three swords all flew at maximum speed.
Within a radius of several miles, they were using the Secret Art, [Drawn Shadow] over and over.
After a few moments, the immense sword qi erupted all over.
An endless storm of black sword images expanded like a lotus, silently blooming in the sky.
As the flying swords flew, the entire s.p.a.ce around him was filled with sword phantoms, forming an entire sea of swords.
Gu Qing Shan then silently formed a Lightning seal and infused it into his technique!
The black sword images now suddenly contained blue-white arcs of lightning!
Very quickly, the endless sea of swords turned into a sea of lightning.
The flickering lightning erupted in bright flashes, eliminating the darkness around them.
In a split second, the area in a radius of several miles was as bright as day.
Lightning striking in such a large area was a miraculous sight.
At a certain point, one of the corpses twitched.
Gu Qing Shan’s gaze became intense.
His mind moved and so did his sword.
With a ‘pop’, the Earth sword suddenly broke out countless Lightning sword phantoms on its flight.
The Chao Yin sword followed suit, also turning into arcs of electrical snakes.
The Six Paths Great Mountain sword circled around the corpse over and over, creating thin strings of lightning with each slash.
All three swords appeared, creating a Lightning cage out of sword phantoms, completely trapping the corpse inside.
The corpse inside the cage suddenly moved.
A large shadow flew out from the body, cras.h.i.+ng into the Lightning sword phantoms.
Hiss hiss hiss…!
The sword phantoms left clear white smoke as they slashed its body.
The shadow screeched in a terrifying cry of pain.
—–it’s a ghost!
Only a ghost could be so heavily wounded by just touching Lightning.
Gu Qing Shan was now more sure of his previous conjecture.
The shadow quickly retreated, das.h.i.+ng around the lightning cage, trying to find a gap and escape.
As he carefully looked at it, Gu Qing Shan noticed that this shadow seemed to be created from several dozen others, their varying bodies and figures overlapped, creating for a really uncanny sight.
Shannu appeared and told Gu Qing Shan: “Gongzi, this is a monster of Huang Quan under the seat of Divinity, created from 13 different soul-devouring revenants, made to eat the souls of living beings”
“Why does Huang Quan have such a cruel creature? And why didn’t I see it the last time I was there?” Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but ask.
“Last time you were there, the 7-colored spear already ma.s.sacred everything in Huang Quan once, so of course you didn’t see anything” Shannu answered.
“Can you talk to them?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
“I can’t, they’ve already lost their sentience, they only know how to kill now” Shannu shook her head.
“Could they be born from the Entropy Ghost’s body after it was destroyed?”
“It’s possible, but then if that’s the case…”
Shannu’s expression slowly became grim.
Gu Qing Shan also understood and quickly asked the Earth sword: “How many Huang Quan ghosts and revenants does it take to make an Entropy Ghost?”
The Earth sword replied: 「 There are a total of 808 h.e.l.lsp.a.w.ns, 1600 ghosts and revenants in h.e.l.l. I’m not sure how many of them are needed exactly, but at least half of them is needed, otherwise it couldn’t take form 」
Gu Qing Shan’s heart sank.
If his guest was correct, then a single Entropy Ghost could scatter into at least 1204 other ghosts.
“And I killed 11 Entropy Ghosts just now…”
If all the Entropy Ghosts all scattered into ghosts and revenants, that would mean…
Thinking of that possibility, even Laura who has been listening on the side started to tremble.
At this time, some strange noises came from the road ahead of them.
“We need to stop a bit and discuss this”
Saying so, Gu Qing Shan put Laura on the horse’s back and jumped down.
Waving his hand, the three swords performed powerful attacks that directly destroyed all 13 soul-devouring revenants.
They then returned and hovered behind his back.
“I’m going to take a look, you two wait here” he told Laura and the horse.
Laura looked around.
Besides Gu Qing Shan and herself, there wasn’t a single living person here, only a few corpses a bit further away.
These corpses maintained their postures while they were alive, standing absolutely still.
Their facial expressions showed indescribable pain, as if they were hit by extreme fear.
In the dark of night, this entire city seemed to be dead.
A cold breeze blew past, delivering a chill.
If the Entropy Ghost really did scatter into countless ghosts…
Thinking that, Laura started trembling without being able to stop.
“Gu Qing Shan, I’m scared” she called out.
“Don’t worry, I’ll just go take a look and return right away!” Gu Qing Shan said.
Laura sniffled, sobbing as she insisted: “But I’m really scared”
Gu Qing Shan could only return and put her back on his shoulder.
“Comfortable?” he asked.
Laura strongly nodded.
“I’ll go take a look with her a bit, you can wait here” Gu Qing Shan told the black horse.
He then went ahead together with Laura.
The black horse stared at their backs, then around himself.
On his right, about 30 meters away, a corpse had its mouth and eyes opened wide, apparently screaming in fear at his direction.
Staring for a few moments, the corner of the corpse’s mouth seemed to curl up just a bit.
Did that corpse just smile?
The black horse opened his eyes wide trying to take a closer look, noticing that the corpse’s expression was still that of fright without any hint of a smile.
The black horse went silent, then sighed: “Is a horse not allowed to be scared as well?”
He quickly chased after Gu Qing Shan and Laura.
