Rise of the Demon God

Chapter 979 - 979: Lost Powers

"Do you even need to thank me for that? What kind of a man would I be if I can't even do something like that for my woman?" Long Chen asked, frowning. 

Mingyu felt her heartbeat skip a beat as she heard the words of Long Chen. 

"You know, I have something to tell you," Mingyu muttered as she lowered her gaze, only to realize that her gaze ended up on his waist. She once again raised her gaze with an embarrassed look on her face. 

"Say what? You can tell me everything," Long Chen alluded to her as he touched her cheeks that were already red because of what had happened recently.

Mingyu could only gaze in Long Chen's eyes as she couldn't look down.

She gazed into his deep eyes as she placed her hand over his hand, which was resting on her cheeks. 

With misty eyes, she started speaking, "I realized that I don't say it often, but I really love you. I love you so much; I don't think I can describe. Thank you for coming into my life."

Long Chen couldn't help but smile as he heard her words. He lowered his head to bring it closer to her cheeks before he gave her a short kiss.

" Shouldn't I be the one thanking you for coming into my life? You appeared out of thin air like an angel when I was traveling alone. You became my accomplice in this journey and even helped me in ways you can't even think," he let out gently as he freed her lips. 

" I honestly don't think I could have done as much as I did if you weren't here in my life. Thank you for coming into my life. Also, I love you more," Long Chen declared before he kissed Mingyu's red lips again. 


In a faraway place, a carriage was moving through the crowded City. The carriage was seemingly in a bad condition and didn't seem like it belonged to a rich family. 

It was a commoner's carriage that was used to carry people from one place to another at a cheap cost.

The carriage was already filled with tens of passengers. In fact, it seemed a little too crowded. 

A young boy was sitting in the crowd of passengers, getting pinched because of lack of space. 

The young boy was not actually a boy, though. He was a person who was hundreds of years old, but he still looked like a kid. 

He was the person who was carrying the Twentieth Token from Divine Heaven Sect that had been wiped from existence. He was also the man who had schemed against Long Chen to have Xu Liang and Long Chen fight. 

Unfortunately for him, things didn't go as planned. Just when Long Chen was about to be killed by the Xu Liang, it seemed like he was possessed by someone. 

Long Chen did some things which were so miraculous that he still couldn't understand. Long Chen not only killed Xu Liang, but he also did that when none of them could be seen. 

Not only that, things got worse when Long Chen used some miraculous ability to send Wu Lia to a deserted place. 

Wu Lia had the Law of Time, and he also had an ability that allowed him to travel from one place to another. That's why he was able to travel to various worlds and also appear near Long Chen. 

As he appeared in the desert after facing Long Chen, he had realized that his abilities were taken. He wasn't able to use the abilities of the time. Moreover, he wasn't able to Teleport.

He still had some of his strength but nothing like Teleportation and being able to pause time. 

He has been traveling for days to get to his destination because he wasn't able to Teleport. 

Throughout the long journey, there was one question in his mind that kept appearing again and again. 

'How did he do it?'

Taking away his ability, that shouldn't have been possible. How did he do it? Just what was his identity? He had an idea, but what Long Chen had done previously had gone above the realm of possibility. 

'I must do something. Even though I can't use most of my powers, I can still alert him. We must come together to come up with something. Just why did he have to be in Fengshu? Now that I can't Teleport, it makes it much more tough. Sigh, I'll have to make a mess of things and expose myself now,' he thought as he shook his head. 

He was traveling through a carriage to the Esteria Empire because he knew they had the portals to lead them to Fengshu. That was necessary for what he wanted to do. 

With the loss of his abilities, he was just like a Cultivator who had normal strength and nothing more. He didn't know how he was going to get the permission of the Emperor, who didn't know about him. 

'How should I handle it? Should I beat him up and force him? Or should I use more civilized methods? I should be able to overpower him despite my limited abilities, but that'll create a big mess. Sigh, that guy really just had to take away my powers. He made it so difficult, ' he thought as his frown deepened. 

The carriage kept traveling through the snow-covered roads as the boy continued thinking. 


Back in Fengshu, the Royal Palace of Esteria had welcomed its Prince Consort, who was with the Princess at the moment. 

In a different part of the same world, another discussion was taking place between the person who was hiding behind a half-face mask. A young man stood before the half-masked man. 

"You're here. Good. Have you done what I asked you to do?" The Masked Man asked the young man.

"I have," the young man nodded his head with an expressionless face.

"That's good. I thought we could stop him without killing him, but I can't sense that guy. It can't only mean Long Chen has killed him. If that's possible, then the threat is already too big. He must be killed," the half-masked man muttered grimly. 

"I can already feel his presence here. It should be time," he added.

He was thinking that Long Chen had killed Wu Lia but what he didn't know was that the only reason he couldn't feel Wu Lia was because of his abilities being taken. Because of that, his special aura was also taken. That's why this man wasn't able to feel him.
