The fire in the cave is brighter and warm for the cold dark night. Sina is sitting on the comforter and began lying down while reading some book.

Sometimes she whistles in glee. She has fulfilled her vengeance, as she remembers the myriad ways she use to torture those two killers that killed her friends.

Blood for blood.

On her side is a newly brewed coffee made by Azief. The aroma is even more enticing than ever. Of all his life skill coffee making rises the fastest.

On the other hand Sofia are on another tunnel of the cave looking at their result of robbing the stronghold.

Loki on the other hand is closing his eyes and lying down on his comforter.

Azief wanted the resources of the stronghold and also wanted to teach a lesson to all the people inside the stronghold.

There is no one that could help you if you do not want to change. But mostly his reason is because he needed more power.

That’s it. And since the government robbed the people, he robbed the government. He would even accept being robbed by other people in this new world….if he was weaker.

He could not do nothing else. If he was weak he would have been forced to enter the stronghold.

But since he was strong the people of the stronghold treats him with respect. Power is not everything.

True….but it is something to have power.

It makes life easier……and livable. Living as a coward can work. Mostly it work in a world of before.

Because cowards….live. Cowards survive. But this new world plays by a different rules. If you are a coward…you’ll die.

You will not survive.

You will be trampled to death by people who are ruthless and stronger than you. Having power does not mean you are evil.

It depends on what you use the power for.

And Azief is intending to use the power for good. Good for him and Sofia. If that is not a noble intention Azief don’t know what would constitute a noble intention.

He is not some savior or a messiah figure, to save everyone that he meets. But those he has promised to protect, he would try his damndest to do it.

Why? Because a man could not fight the world alone, could not survive alone despite what movies or books try to tell you, being a lone wolf leads you dying alone.

It looks cool. It feels cool being the lone wolf, but it only decreases your chance of surviving. The caveman survives because they move in group.

He is not saying that people in that group didn’t die, but in the end some of them survive. Numbers matters.

The stronghold has a warehouse full of treasures taken from the people and the people were meek as a sheep, letting themselves fooled by the promise of security.

If by robbing them he could get profit and give them a wakeup call, then that’s killing two birds with one stone.

Come to think of it, I’m a pretty nice guy he thought inwardly. If Hatta and Hamad could hear his thought, they would surely slap their own faces.

He is a nice guy? Robbing a stronghold of all their riches and he is the good guy? When  did logic turns into nonsense?

Loki was busy cataloguing their loot before he went for a nap time and then Loki gives the record of the loot to Azief.

Azief and Sofia both check the result. Azief was grinning from ear to ear while Sofia was dumbfounded.

Gold. 60 thousand. Pillar forming pills 45. Skill Points Pill.127.EXP Pills. 315.

‘We struck gold!’ Sofia said. Azief could not stop smiling. He rarely smiles but seeing the numbers he could even revert back to his character.

Then he thinks again about how this was achieved. This Loki is probably the most useful person in the world.

He could turn invisible, undetected by anything, could transform his face and has a book that list earth shaking weapons.

Having him alone is equal to having an army. If he is my enemy I would shudder to think the measures I have to use to protect myself.

It’s like having a spy that would never fail and a manual to nuclear weapons

‘I will distribute these loots? Any objection?’ Azief declared then he looks around

‘No objection.’ Sofia also agrees.

‘The pillar forming pills will be distributed as follows. 15 to me 15 to Sofia 15 to Loki. Skill Points pill will be divided as follows. 41 for me, 41 for Sofia 45 for Loki.’

Loki was already getting up at this point when he was being woken up by Sina and Loki was about to say something but Azief gesture for him not to speak so he stays his tongue.

‘For the EXP pill it will be divided 50 each.’

‘Is everyone satisfied?’ Sofia and Loki nodded.

‘Then let us all improve our power for this moment. I will be in my tunnel if anyone needs anything’ Sofia nodded and disappear.

Loki was about to go when Azief said

‘Wait!’

‘Yes?’

‘You will clean up the bodies?’

‘Of course. Hehehe’ he chuckles a bit

Then before he could go Azief ask again.

‘Is that how you got Sina loyalty?  By getting her, her revenge? I’ve seen what is done towards them. It was not pretty. Sofia almost puked and that saying something.’

Loki then breaks into a smile.

‘A deal is a deal. I made a deal with her. And I always fulfill my deals. The deal was, if I get her those two people, she will join me in my endeavor.’

‘And you use my plans to not only catch the two people I sense in the woods but also to fulfill your deal? That is pretty cunning. Almost like a trickster.’ Hearing this Loki smiles and he repeated back the words of Azief , in a whisper.

‘Irony abounds when you know the future.’ That is what Azief once said to him a long time from now.

Azief did not hear it. But Loki then explains.

‘You said to me, to bring those two people to the cave. I ask you why? You reply, you want to know the true reason they kill the people in that field. I agreed with that course of action.’

‘But you didn’t-‘ Azief was about to protest but loki quickly cut off his words.

‘But I did. You said you wanted to know the true reason they kill people in that field right? You didn’t say anything about needing them alive.’

And Loki smiles with a smile that is full of mischief.

Azief smiles.

‘So, technicality?’

Loki just smiles.

‘You did just say, I’m a trickster.’ He said.

‘It’s not my fault you were not specific.’ Loki added

‘So, you brought them here, and serve them on a silver platter to Sina so that she would owe you. But for what reason?’

‘I tell you already didn’t I? That we nee-‘

‘I don’t believe that, Loki. There is some personal stakes at play here. This is not about some Invasion that is going to happen or about humanity no matter how much you want me to believe that.’

‘How do you know?’ He said and Loki said this with a mocking tone

‘I see it in your eyes.’

‘What do you see?’

And Azief come closer as he stares at those blue eyes of Loki and he said with a smirk

‘Sorrow. Like an eye of a man who has live for too long and experienced so much, that he is already tired.’

‘Hmph’ Loki scoffed.

‘Mind games. And Cryptic as ever’ and then he almost closes his own mouth.

‘As ever?’ Azief heard that and the choice of words puzzles him but he chalks it up to confusion.

‘Is there nothing else?’

Azief closes his eyes and then opening it back he said

‘No. We’re done. Meet you in the morning.’ Saying this Loki disappears to another tunnel, leaving Azief with his pills.

This is the current status of Azief. Looking at it he is satisfied especially his high tier level skill.

SHADOW MANIPULATION HIGH TIER LEVEL 20

ENABLE THE USER TO USE TO SHAPE THE SHADOWS, TO ASSIST THE USER BY GATHERING THINGS AND CAN USE THE SHADOWS TO INTERACT WITH THE SHADOWS SURROUNDING. COULD MANIPULATE THE SHADOWS TO GO OUTSIDE AS THE USERS EYE. COULD SEPARATE THE USER SHADOW AND CAN GIVE THEM AN ORDER. LAST FOR AN HOUR. THE SHADOW ACTS AS A SECOND LIFE.

This is one of the skills he really wanted to manipulate. To act a second life and could also act as his second eye.

In darkness, his shadow would pretty much be undetected. And since it didn’t emits any aura, his shadows could also be used as a reconnaissance tool.

But Azief is not done.

He wanted to break that barrier finally. The barrier of level 40. Loki had said to him that it is best to break to level 40 when he has ten pillars and have one of those pillars has supreme pillars.

He has supreme pillars of strength and that gives him the strength that could destroy the wooden stronghold like he is the waves that envelopes sand castles.

Loki warned that when reaching level 40 the status windows would change in a way that is not really familiar and the pillars will no longer exist.

Bringing some pills from his bag of holdings he stared at it. 50exp pills is enough for him to break through the next level since he is already feeling he is in a verge of leveling up.

But then he bring out a seven colored pills that was made by Sina. The ingredients includes the skill book.

Sina made a lot or him, Loki and Sofia.

Azief looks at the direction of Sina and shakes his head. Sina is an Op cheat character.

Though not for herself but for others. She could create pills that could turns even the weakest person to a strong person but yet she could not use it for herself.

She is the most OP support character Azief has ever hand the pleasure of encountering.

The seven coloured pills are called the Condensing Pillars Rainbow Pills. Loki said that when leveling to level 40, the pillars will condense and melded into a spherical orb and the quality of the orb depends on its color.

White, grey, red, brown, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet and golden violet.

Each color represents the quality and innate power that one would have. The strongest is the golden violet orb that would unconditionally oppress every single pillar and even orbs.

The orbs will also contain the power of all the pillars.

The reason why it needs a supreme pillar is to make sure the condensing is stabilized after the leveling.

There is also another pill that was given to him which is the Eleven Colors Pills that is able to give an essence of every colours to the orbs and Stabilizing Condensing Pills.

And another golden pills that belongs to Loki. Loki said this one he found in an ancient ruin in Norway and decided to give it to him to make sure that he would condense the pillars to one of the top tier orbs.

Azief look again at Sina and sighed.

And then he looked at Loki. Loki is really is his lucky person. First, he managed to rob the stronghold, now he brought this useful person to his side.

Having Sina it’s like he has the perfect teams. Long range Sofia. Espionage and surveillance,  Loki. He takes the role of the tanker. Sina is the ultimate support character.

Then sitting on the ground he then put all the 50 EXP pills inside his mouth and crunch it like he is eating cereal.

Then suddenly a notification sounded out in front of him

THE SHADOW LORD ITEM AS IT IS A UNIQUE CLASS ITEMS WILL NOW ENGAGE IN FUSION WITH THE OWNER WILL. ABILITIES NOW INCLUDE APPEARING AT WILL AND GROW TOGETHER WITH THE OWNER STRENGTH.

Then as this was explained Azief could see in his status windows that his items now disappear from the windows and he could feel that he gain full control of all the shadow lord items.

He could also feel that the power of the items complemented him while he strengthens the items.

Then another notification sounded out.

[THE PILLARS WILL BEGIN CONDESING NOW. WILL YOU REPRESS THE EVOLUTION?]

And Azief answered No in his mind and then he was there again, in his consciousness, looking at his 10 pillars each one with a different height.

He was looking at his Supreme Pillar of strength.

Then as he looked at it, the pillars first cracked. Then slowly it become more cracked and then the sound of rumbling could be heard

A six storied high pillar of strength then melted under the pressure of Azief leveling up. As it melted it become a puddle of liquid, a vast amount of liquid that floats in the air and then his consciousness morphs into a desert.

In this sandy desert with no water the liquid slowly descend from the sky and occupied an area and a lake was formed because of the amount of liquid after the pillars melted.

Looking up Azief could see pillars in the sky but then he feels rain. This rain is actually his pillars melted and turns into the same kind of liquid like his supreme pillar of strength.

Then his agility pillars, then stamina, then endurance then all of his pillars melted.

The rains become harder and the area around the dry desert becomes damp and there is a sign of life that is about to erupted out from the sands.

The rain lasted for hours and then when it stopped raining, the liquid moves by itself to the lake.

They all combined with the water in the lake until it became a huge lake, a lake with colors like rainbow, shining and glowing.

Then with the will of his mind, the lake began to evaporate and slowly it rises up in the air and began condensing itself to an orb in the air.

First the orb was white, pure like snow. Slowly it becomes grey as it rotated faster and wind whipping his face.

He is in his own consciousness watching all of this happens.

To him it has been hours since he saw his pillars melting, experiencing rain in his desert consciousness and then looking at the lake condensing in the air, but on the outside world, it has not even been one seconds since he closes his eyes.

The Supreme Pillars that Azief has is stabilizing the colours as the grey become more and more prominent until the orb rotates again this time with greater rotation power and the orb slowly turning red.

Malevolent pressure intimidates Azief whole being as he felt that his mind is being taxed.

Then he was assailed with the images of death and gore, he could see countless slaughtering of zombies and he could feel killing intent that roils and bubbles inside him like a boiling pot that is about to explode.

All of these images were his memories when he killed the zombies and monster and it was all condensed in the orbs, all these negative emotions.

He could feel fear. Suffering. Uncertainty. Darkness. Despair……but it was the pain that overwhelms him.

All that pain, and suffering he kept inside exploded out and was condensed in the orb. He screamed inside his mind while holding his head.

Gritting his teeth, his vein on his head almost exploded…but he didn’t want to stop here.

Is this his limit? Red orb?

‘No!!’ He yelled defiantly. He could go higher! He could push more of his limit. On the outside world his mouth was bleeding because the intense pressure he exerted gritting his teeth.

On the outside world, he was bleeding, sweating, trembling and he then swallowed the Stabilizing Condensing Pills and he could feel his mind at ease, as slowly the images began to dissipate and his breathing relaxed as the orb once again rotated and the colours of the orb turns into brown and Azief could feel that connection with the energy deep under the earth as the brown colured signify his connection with the earth elements.

The desert then sprouted some plants on the ground.

Then pushing himself again, the orb rotates again this time the orb is the size of football.

From brown it turned into orange and the pressure enveloping him becomes heavier as he could feel like his mind is being assailed by some invisible force.

He could feel his connection with the energy of the earth strengthened and then he quickly swallowed Condensing Pillars Rainbows Pill since he couldn’t endure it any longer.

Without warning the orb suddenly turned its colour yellow and it was like his body becomes strengthened.

On the outside world his body glowed with yellow aura as the cave was being illuminated with the light coming out of his body.

Loki looking at this phenomenon smiles.

The fact that Sina OP cheats skills is one thing that he always knows in the future. Looking at Sina, he was thankful that she is on their side this time instead of against them.

In the future, she was the ultimate weapon of the World Government.

If not for the reason that he was a Sovereign in the future, he would have to admit that having her as enemies is a surefire way to live a short life.

She might not be able to kill you but she could create an army of high leveler to chase you around the world.

Before he became a Sovereign, Loki has always stay out any business regarding the Genius Alchemist Sina.

Thinking about it, Azief once predicted that he would one day join hands with Sina. At the time he heard that he laughs.

Who would have thought? Then he focused his eyes back at Azief.

In Azief consciousness, the orbs started turning green as Azief slowly feels the connection with nature, feeling the calming energy, the soothing aura washes over him like the spring breeze.

The plants multiplied in the desert. The orb rotates again.

Slowly, it turns blue. This time the Orb started rotating slowly and slowly as it began to show indication that it will stop.

But…..Azief forces himself again and this time in the real world, his bone was broken from the inside like some invincible force is pressuring him and he coughed up blood but he did not stop.

This is the critical point!

He has already eaten the Condensing pillars Rainbow Pill which elevated his orb to one color grade and now he then put the Eleven Colors pills as all eleven colours liquid shot out to the orb and stabilizes itself and give him that needed boost to push one more time.

His orb suddenly turned cyan and then blue as he felt the element of water inside him, feeling like he could the majestic power of the ocean.

In the desert suddenly water sprung out deep from the desert and as it sprung out, every droplet of water created plants and the soil hardens as grass suddenly grow with accelerated speed.

The dry desert slowly turning into a plain of green grass as rivers was formed and lake pooling up.

Azief could feel his vitality increasing at a fast rate; he could feel the majesties of life. His body once again undergoes another transformation.

He did not notice it, and others in the cave didn’t notice it either but when he reached cyan color grade orb inside his consciousness, his body emitted the oppression of Laws of the Elements.

While other could not sense it, the beast nearby sense it.

Loki senses it.

And he smirked.

In the future, the Prince once told him that the first time he condensed his pillars he reached the brown color grade and even that makes him powerful enough to reign supreme in Malaysia.

But comparing him to Oreki who reaches blue grade or Katarina which reaches violet, he was nothing and gets oppressed in the World Government first meeting.

Loki however has another plan for Azief future.

He needs to be stronger and then as he thought of this he looks at Sofia and smiles bitter smiles.

Will the prophecy still stands even after I did this? Looking at Sofia and Azief, he felt like he is looking at a story he already knows.

Azief on the other hand, in his consciousness felt the pressure again, this time more powerful than before and the wild winds before that accompany the orb each time it rotates to change colurs now turns into a storm as the lake has completed dried up and the orb is now as huge, three times of that of basketball ball.

The green plains are now assailed by typhoon and storms, and the clouds in his consciousness began producing lightning and thunder, booming and attacking the green plains.

Slowly as it rotates it becomes as big as a cannon ball, with cyan color and then as Azief endures the whipping winds that are bombarding his consciousness, he pushes again his limits.

The orb turns violet and the moment it turns violet Azief could feel the elements of fire, as he feels braver, stronger and impulsiveness awakened inside him.

The plains suddenly spurted fire from the ground, fires that reaches the clouds, heat that melt irons and it was like the plains turns into a sea of fire with all the grass and plants and trees, were burn to ashes.

The beast nearby the caves all make themselves scarce as the  clouds in the sky of the real world booms thunder.

In the depth of the Mariana Trench, an orb shines a bit…..the orb was filled with runic markings and emits an aura of ancientness and of forbidden power

The World Orb senses the birth of the Violet grade orb. Loki smiles again. He could hear the thunder but he did not come to the past to make Azief one short of perfection.

The golden pill he gave Azief is actually the Golden Violet Forming Pill.

The reason why Katarina has violet grade orb is because her pillars of ice was maxed to the maximum making her advancement to level 40 become incredibly strong.

When Katarina reaches level 40 her Violet grade orb has suppressed very threat to her life and she was practically invincible in the unforgiving coldness of Russia.

Azief has the advantage of numbers of pillars and the fact that he almost upgraded all of his pillars

Combined that with a supreme pillar Loki was confident that Azief could pass the barrier to yellow or green and with the pills that Sina concocted he could stabilizes his energy and also pushes him to the Violet grade orb.

But the Golden Violet Forming pill has only 5.

One in Norway which he got because of the help of the Book. One in India guarded by six handed blue monster.

One in Grand Canyon at USA inside a cave filled with slithering giant rattlesnakes. One in England under River Thames.

One in China under the Li River. It can only be used after a person reaches violet grade orb rank.

It’s use? To propel directly one grade to the ultimate orb, golden violet where the five elements laws can be felt and energies of the universes and magic could be felt.

When Azief saw that the orb began halting its rotation, he quickly shoves the golden pill inside his mouth, not knowing what he started in motions.

Golden Violet orb was finally born on earth!

Endowed with the power of the world orb as Azief entire soul begins its resonance with the world orb.

All of the powers and abilities on earth right now originate from the world orb and Azief has managed to sense a bit of the Orb powers and that already is enough to give him earth shaking power.

Now as the orb is formed inside his consciousness, he resonates with the World Orb.

The clouds suddenly turns darker, as booming thunders filled the skies and lightning strikes the land near the caves, the sound startled Sofia and Sina.

In the stronghold the people who have returned to their home with despair in their hearts after being robbed was awakened again as the sound of thunders breaks any mood to sleep, some rushed out from their house and looks at the sky.

It was like the sky is angry at something.

What they could not see is that energy is pulsating at one points, endowing the energy of the world into one person in a cave far from the stronghold, the energy was volatile and chaotic and then absorb by the person, unconsciously.

With no rain or wind, the clouds keep producing thunders and the sound of the thunder keep booming, lightning fill the dark nights.

Children find their parents and hugged them tight; the orphans looks at the sky with fears, the Companies of the stronghold could not help but feeling fear creeping inside their hearts.

A sense of fear arose inside the hearts of these people. Uneasiness and uncertainty begin taking hold.

Hamad and Hatta who did not yet form Pillars could felt something in their hearts.

When Azief manages to form a Golden Violet core, it was like even in the people of the stronghold could sense it and Hatta and Hamad who was the strongest in the stronghold could feel like their soul trembles and that they are being suppressed by an invincible power.

Imagine the distance between the stronghold and the caves and yet Hamad and Hatta could still feel it.

This is the oppression of Universal Laws, undeterred by distance, and can be sensed by other who cultivated Universal Law.

For one who does not train in their Laws all they could feel is oppression and fear like Hatta and Hamad.

The one who takes the brunt of this pressure was the people in the caves. Sina was kneeling on the floor and is being supported by Loki who is trembling on his knees.

Sweats filled her back as she looks at the sitting Azief with eyes of fear.

She could feel like her energy in chaos and like she is now kneeling in front of a giant. Because that is how she sees Azief in her minds right now.

His figures in her mind right now shows her that Azief is a gigantic Titan, sitting, his head reaches the clouds and Sina believes that if only Azief release his breath she would then be blown away like dust.

This is the oppression of Advanced Human towards people who have not yet formed their pillars.

The reason why Sina is seeing this is because her energy inside her body, the energy she gathers from monster is now in chaos like turbulent waves being rocked by a great storm.

Sofia on the other hand was trembling as she slowly succumbs to the pressure and kneels in the hard ground, like a knight in front of a King.

She could not even get up even though she has already formed her pillars. Sweats filled her face and every moves was taxing to her body.

The caves itself slowly caving in because of the pressure.

This Golden Violet orb is the pinnacle grade of existence for Orb Condensing Stage. Even though he would level up later to reach level 50 the orb will stay until level 60.

That is because level 50 did not change anything other than unlocking some features and breakthrough to the Energy Disperse Stage.

With the Golden violet grade orb in Azief soul, he can exert crushing pressure on all the other type orb grade and deadly pressure to pillars forming stage.

If he meets an Energy Gathering Stage person, with one word he could intimidate and create unreasonable fear inside that person mind.

If he wills it, with one word he is able to kill if he directed his pressure onto a Energy Gathering Stage person.

When Energy Gathering Stage person becomes a Pillar Formation stage, their stats is condensed into the pillars with the runic marking of the World Orb, condensing their stats to perform to the maximum of their abilities.

This is the accumulation of the Body Refining Stage period where stats is collected and gathered.

Right now, Azief is no longer a Pillar Formation high level expert but an Orb Condensing Stage with Golden Violet core.

Usually as long as you tries to upgrade the color of grade before level 50 you could reach at least until the violet level if there is no complication.

That is because after this, you could not repress the evolution again unless by using some special means.

But Azief has already reached the pinnacle with the Golden Violet Forming pills that he got from Loki.

Of course, Loki did not tell Azief what that pill really is. It only has five and the other four is for him, Sofia, Wang Jian and Will.

Sina is excluded because she would take too much time to reach Orb Condensing Stage.

The thing about Sina is that her pill concocting level is a cheat but she herself could not eat her own pills.

Even if she ate it, it will have no effect on her.

So, this makes her the most perfect support character but also make her something that resembles a king in chess.

The others need to protect her.

Everything has its price even such ungodly skill of Sina. By allowing her to create miracles pills, her stats that relates to fighting, defending all in the lower tier.

Even now, she did not yet reach Pillar Forming stage. Even then, this does not mena they could eat the Golden Violet core. They first have to reach Violet core before eating the Golden Violet pill or you really would be eating the pill in vain.

This is why he needs Sina. Because she is the only one who could make miracle pills like, Rainbow Orb Pills, Stabilizing Orb Pills, Eleven Colors Essence pill and many more pills related to orb condensing.

Give her the ingredients and she could make it. But it is unfortunate that her leveling speed is slow.

Loki knows the standard of power. In the future, the World Government has already separated every ten level.

First the Energy Gathering stage. This is level one to ten. Level eleven to twenty nine is called the Body Refining stage.

This is the only exception of the ten level, one stage theory.

Thirty to thirty nine is called the pillar forming stage and forty to fifty is called the Orb Condensing Stage.

Loki, Sofia and Sina is enduring waiting for Azief to finish his transformation.

Azief is now experiencing a surge of energy entering him like he was being nourished by the elements.

For a moment Azief could feel the earth. Feel the life inside it, beneath it, on top of it, feeling all these lives and things living.

He could feel the ocean, feeling its regal power, it unceasing motions. He could feel the heat of fire in the deepest part of the earth core.

He could feel the metal underneath the ocean sea bed, feeling the magnetic force on the earth core, grasping at that energy, and Azief understand that this is the elements.

He could feel all of it.

In Chinese belief there is one such thoughts that is called Wu Xing. The five element. Wood, Water, Fire, metal, Earth.

They were wrong.

They are so many elements on earth, energy that is calm and serene, and energy that is chaotic and volatile.

Elements that words have no way explaining.

He could feel it all for that one moment as the golden violet orb establishes itself inside his consciousness and the burning plains turn to the charred black soil and then a wind blows as the plants grew again, grasses spread out onto the charred black soils and life blooms again.

And the Golden Violet orb flew into the sky and become the Sun that gives live.

In his consciousness, there is  a wide plains, green grass, tall and healthy, as far as the eyes could see, with flowers blooming on some part of the plains, and rivers flowed with clear water.

There, in his consciousness exist all the elements. In the distance there is a mountain. Azief could feel that the mountain is a volcanic mountains.

He could sense the heat inside it, waiting to erupt.

Farther away from that is a sea. Serene and calm, the waves lapped the shores.

On the middle of the sea was the breezy wind. All the elements were present.

The golden Violet orb contains all the elements, perfection of the Orb and then his consciousness finally achieved equilibrium with this newfound power that Azief has achieved.

It has been three minutes on the outside world, three minutes of thunders and lightning, three minutes of crushing pressure exerted on the people in the cave, three minutes of fear inside the hearts of the people in the stronghold and three minutes of times for some ancient creature in the farthest region of the world to take notice of these occurrence.

Without the golden Violet forming pills no one could achieve golden violet orb.

Even in Loki future the highest recorded orb grade was Katarina which reaches violet grade orb.

The golden violet forming pills was discovered when many of the important people already passed the Orb Condensing Stage and it was found by Odin in Norway which started the hunt for it during that time.

The hunt is for helping the younger generation of levelers since most of the people who survive the first wave already reach Energy Disperse Stage.

It takes another 1 year to properly asses its use. At the time, Loki was not yet a sovereign but Lord Shadow was already an Energy Disperse Stage expert.

Meanwhile, a dragon in the depths of an avalanche on Mount Everest opens one of its eyes.

Its body was white and its eyes were blue.

For a while its eyes was open then its closes its eyes again and with one breath the temperature becomes a hundred Celsius colder, reaching the highest recorded negative level zero.

This is what people calls Absolute zero the phenomenon where that motion of particles that constitutes heat would be minimal.

Some beast that was in hibernation opened their eyes for a while before closing them back, as they senses the power of the elements.

The World Orb on the deepest level of the sea glowed for a moment and the sea creature 500 kilometers suddenly mutated becoming stronger and powerful.

Thunder boomed in the distance as oppressive power fills the cave and everyone including Loki could feel their pillars shakes and almost cracked just bearing the pressure of the golden violet orb.

Loki never sees anyone with a golden violet orb before.

He never had a golden violet orb before because he took shortcut and manages to become one of the Sovereigns.

But this is not enough! he said in his mind. But….and he smiles as he thought It’s a start.

And then Azief opens his eyes and there in his eyes was power. Oppresive, majestic and overbearing.

His whole existence radiated power and sharp aura.

And then as he opens his eyes, he smile with satisfaction and said

‘This is good stuff’ and he smirked.
