Lightning Is the Only Way – Chapter 1046: Myriad Bahasa Indonesia

“Well,” Skye said from the side with a frown. “Originally, we intended to create a Sect with you, but it seems like that’s no longer possible.”

Skye pouted like a little girl, and Gravis had to sigh.

“I know, sorry,” Gravis said. “I also looked forward to meeting all of you again. I also wanted to go on adventures with you again and relive our past, but I don’t think that’s possible anymore.”

Gravis looked at his friends with a bitter smile as he remembered how he had ridden on Skye’s back in the lower world.

That had been a long time ago.

“Things have changed too much. I can go with you to some places, but it won’t be the same. The things that are dangerous for you guys are not dangerous to me, and the things that are dangerous to me will directly kill you.”

Gravis took a deep breath and sighed.

“Things are no longer the same.”


“Great!” Ferris shouted with an excited smile, drawing odd gazes from everyone. “So, we only need to become more powerful, right? As long as we are several levels above you, we can have fun together again, right?”

Some of the people shook their heads, but Gravis actually thought about Ferris’ words.

“Actually, that’s not false,” he commented, drawing surprised gazes from everyone. “I will probably reach the Star God Realm soon to help in the comprehension of my Laws. At that point, I will probably just comprehend Laws for a long time. When I’m done, all of you will probably be several levels above me again.”

“At that point, we should be about equal in strength, right?” Gravis asked with a smile.

Several of Gravis’ friends nodded with smiles.

Yeah, that was a possibility.

“When the time comes, we can search for some Secret Areas,” Gravis said with a smile as he looked at Manuel. “That would be like the Heaven’s Trial back then, right?”

Manuel nodded with a smile. “Yes, it would be. Actually, I hadn’t thought that we would be able to go through something similar again, but the words you’ve just said made a lot of sense to me. I’m sure that there are some special areas in this world that groups can go to together, right?”

Manuel looked at the Opposer.

The Opposer nodded.

Manuel’s smile widened. “Great,” he said.

“Sorry, but I have to decline,” Arc said from the side. “I’m too interested in my new freedom, and I want to see the world. I’ve been stuck in my world for way too long, and I want to feel my power rising again.”

Gravis nodded at Arc. “No problem. You do whatever you want.”

Then, the group talked about many random topics for a long time. After a while, Gravis’ friends even warmed up to the Opposer.

Of course, that was mostly thanks to Gravis’ mother, who kept breaking down the Opposer’s image in front of everyone.

After some time, Mortis left with his mother.

The two of them wanted to get to know each other more. After all, the situation was a bit awkward between them.

Arc didn’t have much to contribute, but he liked listening to everyone. He wasn’t impatient in any way since he had lived far longer than any of them.


Then, someone arrived.

“Where’s Mortis?” Joyce asked the group with narrowed eyes.

“He’s with my mom,” Gravis answered her.

Joyce threw Gravis a short glance, which no one was able to decipher.

Well, no one except for Gravis and Arc. After all, they knew the Law of Sentience.

They saw that Joyce had a lot of complex emotions inside of her, the most prominent of which was her pride.

She felt like she had lost against Gravis when she had accepted that she wouldn’t be with him. She didn’t want to be with him regardless, but that didn’t stop her from feeling like she had lost.

It was a nonsensical feeling.

Joyce obviously didn’t have a great opinion of Gravis, but that didn’t bother Gravis.

It wasn’t really important what Joyce thought of him since it had no power over him.

Was Joyce one of Gravis’ friends?

Honestly, Gravis wasn’t sure right now.

She had changed a lot.

For now, Gravis simply treated her with politeness, like a stranger.

Surprisingly, Joyce didn’t leave, but she also didn’t sit down.

Instead, she leaned on one of the walls and acted like she wasn’t listening.

Gravis found that image humorous. ‘Why do you have to act like you don’t care when you obviously do? I mean, I can see it in the configuration of your Laws, but why have that configuration in the first place?’

After a while, the group started talking about what they would do next.

First of all, the two groups decided to join forces. The group from the middle world and the group from the lower world would create a single Sect.


Because they all had something that connected them, and they were all rather outstanding in their own right. Additionally, they were all honest and direct people, which made it easier for them to talk to each other.

Gravis hated two-faced people, which was why there were no two-faced people in this group.

First of all, they had to find jobs for everyone, and the first job they all talked about was the position of Sect Master.

Two beings immediately came to mind.

Manuel and Styr.

The two of them talked with each other, trying to create the perfect plan. None of the two tried to push their ability to the forefront. They only wanted to find the optimal configuration.

In the end, it was decided that Manuel would be the Sect Master.


Because dealing with humans was harder than dealing with beasts.

Beasts generally didn’t have much emotional complexity since they were missing emotions like love, making them easier to manage, but humans were different. A lot of humans acted contradictory to their own personalities, which seemingly made no sense.

Manuel wouldn’t have issues with managing beasts, but Styr would have issues with managing humans.

That was why Manuel became the Sect Master.

Styr decided that the position of Oracle sounded fitting for him.

Gravis had come up with that position when he had built the River Tribe, and Styr felt like it suited him.

Styr would be the being that all the disciples in the Sect could ask, but he would probably mainly deal with beasts. After all, beasts felt more comfortable talking to other beasts than to humans.

Styr would not directly join the hierarchy of the Sect but would be outside of it.

No one could order him, and he also couldn’t order anyone.

After that, everyone talked about the two positions of Vice-Sect Master.

Well, they wanted to talk about it, but they actually didn’t say anything.

No one wanted that position.

Joyce was definitely not suited for that position.

Skye hated responsibility.

Dorian wanted to feel like a hotblooded youngster, traveling the world and making enemies everywhere.

Ferris was not suitable for the position.

Azure was the prime candidate, but she really didn’t want the position. However, she said that she could take the position if absolutely no one else could be found.

Sary had the ability and mindset for that position, but she also didn’t want to. She wanted more private time for herself.

Sadly, that was everyone already.


“What about Aris?” Ferris asked. “He smelled really friendly and dependable.”

Gravis hadn’t met his son since his return, making him unable to evaluate Aris.

However, Gravis’ other friends fell into thought.

“He seems like someone that could be an amazing Sect Master or Vice-Sect Master,” Styr said.

Gravis lifted one of his brows.

‘Did Aris change that much?’

“I agree,” Manuel said. “Gravis, could you send Aris to me later when you see him? I would like to ask him personally.”

“Sure,” Gravis said with a nod.


“Also, I think we now also know the second candidate,” Gravis said with a smile.

Manuel nodded. “Liam,” he said.

Gravis also nodded.

They hadn’t considered people from outside this room while talking about the Sect, but as soon as Ferris brought up Aris, they remembered that there were more people.

Liam was perfect for the Vice-Sect Master position.

Liam didn’t have the kind of charisma and power a Sect Master needed, but he could get along with basically anyone and was able to command a lot of authority.

On top of that, he was really powerful, coming in third in their tournament.

Liam had always seemed lackluster in comparison to Stella and Gravis, but he was actually amazingly powerful.

‘However,’ Gravis thought as he looked at Manuel. ‘If Manuel unleashes his true power, how powerful will he be? He knows a lot of Laws of Perceived Reality and a lot of Emotional Laws. He might even be slightly more powerful than Stella, but I can’t be sure.’

The discussion about the remaining spots was finished rather quickly.

Sary would deal with recruitment, and she would also create a group in the Sect that would deal with the mundane things, like resource management, disciple management, and so on.

Joyce and Azure would act as the generals. They would be responsible for organizing all the disciples for battle and tempering. They would also act as striking forces if another organization wanted to request help from their Sect.

Dorian and Skye would be responsible for gathering resources for the Sect. They would travel all around the world and send anything valuable they gathered to the Sect.

Ferris was responsible for security. He would simply sit around all day, comprehend Laws, and watch the Sect.

Gravis assumed that Stella would also join them, and he also knew what she would most likely want to do.

Assistance for everything.

If any part of the Sect needed assistance, she could jump in and support them. Stella was uniquely predisposed for this position since she was basically good at everything.

And like that, every position was basically set.

The only things left were to ask the beings who were not present if they agreed and name the Sect.

Gravis already thought of a fitting name.

“How does Myriad Sect sound?”
