The Boss Behind The Game - Chapter 310 - Ocean Hegemony Contract
Chapter 310: Ocean Hegemony Contract
Kuilong Ocean, Kankun Island.
The fight within the large formation was still continuing.
When they saw that the Sea King’s struggle was becoming weaker, the players became more anxious. Thus, they tried their best and desperately attacked the defensive walls of the formation.
However, this Demon Imprisoning Formation was jointly created by dozens of Ghost Kings and hundreds of Ghost Commanders. Hence, the strength of the players was not sufficient to break through within such a short time.
The Sea King looked grim, as he felt that the Power of Death coursing through his veins was being gradually impeded as the sealing power continued to flow into his body. He knew that he would die if this scenario continued much longer.
He glanced at Lang Ya below, who was wearing a mocking grin, and briefly looked at Tian Kun. Suddenly, the Sea King let out a piercing scream. The Power of Death in his body was boiling furiously.
At this moment, the Sea King severed his consciousness that was controlling the Power of Death, allowing it to spread and operate on its own accord.
Under such a condition, his eyes instantly turned scarlet red, as his perception of his surroundings became blurred and the desire to kill endlessly lingered in his mind.
In an instant, the Power of Death barely overcame the sealing power. Hence, the Sea King’s will to fight was immediately restored.
The Death’s Light Wheel, which had been still, shone brightly again. It began to swivel around in the large formation, reaping the lives of every being in it in the blink of an eye.
“He won’t be able to hold it for long… he’ll be struggling to death!” Lang Ya looked at the Sea King above and immediately let out a furious roar.
The leaders of the alliance also knew that all of their previous efforts would be wasted if they gave up halfway at this critical moment. Hence, they could only grit their teeth and persevere.
The Sea King seemed to have completely lost his ability to think, as his mind was completely poisoned by bloodthirst. Although he was trapped in the air by the sealing power, the Death’s Light Wheel continued massacring under his manipulation.
Looking from outside, all of the players were immensely surprised when they saw that the Sea King had regained his power to resist. Thus, they hurriedly hastened their attack toward the formation.
The life and death of the Sea King entirely depended on them at this moment. Hence, the players began to attack with increasing ferocity.
There were even many players who didn’t hesitate to purchase the Strengthening Potion from the shop to strengthen their attributes, so that they could help the Sea King escape from this formation as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, a large number of players were gathered at the south side of the Demon Imprisoning Formation to jointly attack the defensive wall.
Suddenly, they found that the surrounding water level drastically rose as a humongous dark shadow hovered under the surface.
“Be careful, everyone! Something is coming up!” a player realized that something was amiss and reminded his team immediately.
The shocking warning made them instantly look down.
When the figure was slowly approaching, the water temperature rose exponentially, too. Some players even had a red -1 above their heads, indicating health loss.
“Scatter! It’s coming!”
In the midst of the cacophony of screams, the figure in the sea suddenly burst out into the open with an explosive splash. Above the ebbing water, a huge body emerged from the ocean and stood in front of the players.
The creature had two horns on its head, like a Horned Dragon, with two green long beards on its mouth. The red scales on its body glimmered brightly under the sunlight, exuding a sense of overwhelming pressure.
Kuilong cast his eyes up to the sky and roared.
The surrounding players were impacted by the shockwaves, causing their health to drop rapidly. The weaker players were even instantly killed by the thunderous roar.
The players were thunderstruck, thus they hastily activated their analyzing ability for the creature. They wanted to see its origin because it had just appeared out of nowhere.
[Kuilong King (Ocean Spirit)]:
Creature Details: The offspring of the Divine Beast that comes from the Infinite Ocean. He defeated the old overlord with his crushing strength in the bloody battle 40 million years ago. Then, he swallowed the old overlord and was successfully promoted as the new overlord of the ocean, subsequently renaming the ocean as the Kuilong Ocean. His strength is in the mid-divine state.
Creature Characteristics: Brutal and proud.
Creature Features: Beginner’s mastery of Law of Water and Law of Fire.
Creature Status: Pre-Divine State. (Will attain the divine state soon, but the success rate is unknown.)
The players were dumbfounded when they saw the information about this creature. It turned out to be an Ocean Spirit-level creature.
The information of this overlord seemed to be more terrifying than Tao Wu, thus greatly terrifying the players.
Although the players often joked that they would catch an Ocean Spirit sooner or later to sell for a huge amount of money, they swiftly abandoned that thought. After all, the strength of the players was simply incomparable to this ancient creature. It would be impossible to overcome that vast difference in strength.
The Kuilong King glared at Little Kun near him with his crimson eyes, dangerously revealing the murderous gleam in his irises.
It had been 100,000 years since a new overlord had challenged him. Hence, the Kuilong King became curious. The descendants of which creatures had this reckless courage to actually challenge him?
When his eyes met the Kuilong King’s menacing gaze, Little Kun hastily hid behind Bai Ze like a frightened rabbit that was flicking its tail. Little Kun even dove most of his body into the water, only revealing his eyes to secretly peer at the Kuilong King.
The Kuilong King thought he was mistaken when he saw the frightened Little Kun. Once again, he searched for the source of the overpowering aura, before landing his vision on Little Kun again.
“Not of age yet?” the lethal glint in Kuilong King’s eyes suddenly faded, obviously a little stunned.
In the Underworld Sea, even if they were the descendants of the Divine Beast with unlimited potential, their parents would only allow them to enter a new ocean to fight for domination after they had become of age. Otherwise, they would certainly perish. However, Little Kun, who was in front of him, was not even underaged and was at most a juvenile. Hence, the Kuilong King couldn’t understand why such a young overlord would dare to challenge him.
“Who are your parents?” Kuilong’s original murderous intent gradually evaporated when he looked at Little Kun.
After all, a juvenile Divine Beast like Little Kun posed no threat to him. If he wanted to kill Little Kun, it would simply be a walk in the park for him.
Little Kun’s head slowly surfaced out of the water with a fearful expression, when he heard the Kuilong King asking him a question. He continued to hide behind Bai Ze but his huge physique couldn’t really be hidden at all.
When the Kuilong King saw this, he widened his eyes as he opened his mouth to suck the air around him. In a flash, Little Kun’s head was pulled by a strong force, as he propelled into the air and flew toward Kuilong.
After grabbing him in his hand, Kuilong lowered his eyes and scrutinized Little Kun, the little Divine Beast. Clearly, his heart was filled with curiosity.
Little Kun seemed like a little tadpole, as he began to twist and struggle.
However, his struggle was completely in vain against the Kuilong King’s forceful grip.
“The descendant of Tao Wu? And Hai Meng, too!”
The Kuilong King’s eyes showed a hint of surprise as he measured Little Kun’s aura.
He was familiar with those two sea overlords because their territories were near the Kuilong Ocean.
“Little guy, are you sure you want to challenge me?” Kuilong couldn’t help laughing when he looked at Little Kun.
Seeing that his struggles were futile, Little Kun immediately bore his two front teeth and bit the Kuilong King’s hand.
However, his teeth could not even penetrate the scales of the Kuilong King’s body, much less breaking its defense.
Bai Ze was extremely restless, as he was afraid that the Kuilong King would hurt Little Kun. He swiftly dashed toward the Kuilong King, wanting to save Little Kun. However, he was swept by a huge wave before he could even approach.
After wasting a lot of strength, Little Kun eventually realized that his attacks were simply meaningless. Thus, he curled up like a deflated ball in the Kuilong King’s hand.
“Little guy, let me ask you… are you sure you want to challenge me?” the Kuilong King asked as he seemingly had zero desire to fight when he stared at Little Kun’s timid appearance.
However, this was the ocean’s law of survival. Little Kun, a potential ocean overlord, had trespassed on Kuilong’s territory. Thus, he could be considered an enemy according to the law. The Kuilong King didn’t have to let him go free. He could simply swallow or kill him to quash another future opponent.
However, Little Kun was only a juvenile creature. The law may be applied to mature creatures, but this was the first time a juvenile had arrived in his territory. Therefore, the Kuilong King didn’t know how to deal with this situation.
If he was an adult, Kuilong would do it without hesitation, regardless of whether he was Tao Wu’s or anyone else’s descendant. After all, this was the law of ocean hegemony. However, it was a difficult decision to make if the other party was a juvenile. Firstly, the arrogance in his heart did not allow him to do it. Secondly, it was obviously unsuitable to use the law of hegemony on juveniles. If he killed Little Kun, Tao Wu and Hai Meng would come to seek revenge since he broke the law.
The Kuilong King felt that the situation was very tricky, as he stared at Little Kun in his hand.
“Let me go… I’m going to duel with you!” the timid Little Kun suddenly became angry when he saw Bai Ze was swept by a huge wave. Fueled by his wrath, his body began to swell again.
“Are you sure?” the Kuilong King was amazed when he heard Little Kun’s words, despite his petite figure.
Such threatening remarks must not be simply uttered. In the Kuilong King’s eyes, this was a declaration of war. Hence, it would be a contractual war that was witnessed by the Underworld Sea God.
“Argh! I’ll bite you to death!” Little Kun shook his head angrily and bit ferociously again.
Suddenly, an unknown shadowy fang appeared above the Kuilong King and Little Kun’s heads, looking sharp and menacing.
In the blink of an eye, the two fangs strongly collided with each other. Then, they dissipated and turned into streams of energy, before entering into both the Kuilong King and Little Kun’s bodies.
Bai Ze, peering his head from the surface of the turbulent water far away, also received a game notification.
[Game Notification: The NPC Little Kun bound to you has activated the Ocean Hegemony Contract]:
[Ocean Hegemony Contract]:
Contract Details: Under the witness of the Underworld Sea God, Little Kun has officially declared war on the Kuilong King, the overlord of the Kuilong Ocean. The winner will be blessed by the Underworld Sea God and become the overlord of the Kuilong Ocean!
Contract Reminder: Since the contract was established while challenger Little Kun was still underaged, it will not take effect right away. This challenge will proceed only after Little Kun becomes an adult.
Contract Reminder 2: This challenge was initiated by Little Kun, a descendant of the Divine Beast. If Little Kun doesn’t fulfill the challenge according to the contract after adulthood as specified, the Underworld Sea God could remove the natural ability Ocean Affinity and the bloodline of the Divine Beast from him.
Contract Reminder 3: The challenges would be witnessed by the Underworld Sea God. The natural ability of Ocean Affinity of the new overlord would be increased after achieving victory.
Contract Reminder 4: While Little Kun is still underaged, the party being challenged must not injure the challenger.
“Hahaha, little fellow. You really dared to challenge me. The contract has been established under the witness of the Underworld Sea God. Since it’s set in stone, we must not violate the Sea God’s power. I won’t hurt you when you are underaged. Quickly grow up into an adult, don’t let me down!” the Kuilong King laughed out loud when he looked at Little Kun, who was still in a daze from astonishment.
Truly, this challenge had never been just child’s play. As long as the new overlord admitted, the Underworld Sea God would naturally feel it and sign a hegemony contract for them.
Although Little Kun was still very young, he was undoubtedly an enemy of the Kuilong King. He was an enemy who was qualified to compete with him for the ocean’s territory.
Although he didn’t understand what was going on, the Kuilong King’s laughter scared Little Kun senseless, causing him to spit out a bubble unconsciously.
“Little guy, perhaps your challenge is my golden opportunity to advance to the Divine state. So, grow up fast!”
After that, the Kuilong King put Little Kun into the water with a hint of relief in his eyes.
After entering the water, Little Kun quickly swam toward Bai Ze. Then, he raised his head and continued to look at the Kuilong King with hostility as he began to wail loudly.
The Kuilong King faintly smiled, as he lowered his eyes to gaze at the players who were struggling to attack the Demon Imprisoning Formation, before glancing at Little Kun again. After that, he suddenly jumped into the water, setting off a huge wave.
As the Kuilong King was diving in, a crimson tail emerged from the water and slapped fiercely on the defensive wall of Demon Imprisoning Formation.
