Lightning Is the Only Way – Chapter 1222: – Reparations Bahasa Indonesia

Gravis talked with Lina for quite a long time.

She was often interrupted by something she had to do since the Eternal Fire Sect was currently undergoing a severe paradigm shift.

However, she still talked with Gravis whenever she had time.

Lina had realized that Gravis had gone through a lot of experiences, and she could benefit from them.

She had realized that someone with Gravis’ Battle-Strength must have a very special mindset that allowed him to become that powerful in the first place.

By now, she had fully accepted Gravis as an equal, and she even looked at him like he was a bit superior to her.

There was so much she could learn from him.

Of course, Gravis kept all the sensitive things to himself. He hadn’t known Lina for very long, and he didn’t fully trust her yet.

Eventually, after a couple of years, Lina came to an important topic.

“What’s the best way of mending my relationship with Orpheus?” she asked.

Gravis furrowed his brows as he scratched his chin.

“It’s difficult and easy at the same time.”

“Orpheus is similar to me. If he wants to kill you, he will kill you. If he doesn’t want to kill you, he won’t kill you.”

“You’ve gone against him quite severely in the past, and I’m pretty sure that he is only waiting for a moment when staying at his current level isn’t the optimal choice anymore. At that point, he would probably use you as tempering while somehow dealing with your Ancestor.”

Lina took a deep breath.

She had expected something like this, but it was still difficult to hear that someone was out for her life, and she couldn’t do anything about it.

“Is there something I can do?” she asked.

“Make reparations and show your sincerity,” Gravis said. “Show that you want to make amends because you regret your actions, not because he is a danger to your life.”

“And the best way to show that is to become powerful enough to kill him and then pay him back. In order to show that you don’t fear him for his power, you have to become powerful enough to kill him.”

“Of course, all of this is based on the fact that this is the actual reason why you want to mend your relationship,” Gravis said. “If you simply fear him for his power, and you reach the power to kill him, you will probably kill him.”

“Of course, that would come with other complications.”

Lina thought about these things for a bit. “I honestly don’t want to mend our relationship because of his power. I mean, sure, his power is one factor since I don’t want to die, but another reason is that I realized how stupid I have been in the past. I have gone against him because of stupid reasons, and I realize that I have committed a severe mistake.”

Gravis nodded. “I believe you. Surprisingly, your lack of threat is one of the main reasons that allow you to even attempt to mend the relationship. I don’t think Orpheus has ever seen you as a true threat.”

Lina didn’t like that Gravis called her weak, but she knew that Gravis was only telling the truth.

“So, how should I go about doing it?” she asked.

“I would suggest for you to become a level eight Ancestral God. Then, you should fight a level nine Ancestral God. The True Law of Control should have pushed your Battle-Strength forward by quite a bit.”

“After that fight, your Will-Aura should be at around the first level of the Divine God Realm. Then, you should become a level nine Ancestral God.”

“At that time, you would be powerful enough to theoretically kill Orpheus, and when you make your reparations then, you will show that you don’t just do them because of his power.”

“You should offer him something that he truly wants. I would suggest for you to become the new Ancestor of the Sect. At that point, you can give Orpheus all the advantages a Sect Master has without the responsibility. You can either continue to directly lead the Sect or name a proxy.”

“Orpheus wants the same thing every other Cultivator wants. He wants money, Laws, and tempering. You already paid back a lot by giving him the first two things, but I’m not sure if it is enough. You should also promise him tempering by allowing him to choose any targets for the Eternal Fire Sect to attack.”

Lina took a deep breath.

“Don’t worry,” Gravis said before she could say something. “Orpheus is not a heartless guy. He won’t push the Eternal Fire Sect down into an abyss just for his own tempering. In actuality, letting him choose the opponent is not that bad. Orpheus also knows a lot about leadership due to his old job in the Research Company. It’s just that he doesn’t want to deal with too much responsibility.”

Lina remained silent as she thought about Gravis’ words.

The thing Gravis was asking for Orpheus was a lot.

The entire Eternal Fire Sect would basically be subservient to him.

However, wouldn’t Orpheus become the Sect Master anyway?

Then, wouldn’t the Eternal Fire Sect already be on his beck and call?

The only thing she would do was to act as a backer and make Orpheus’ life easier.

Eventually, Lina sighed.

“I think you’re right. It’s difficult to give up all these things, but genuine reparations have to hurt. I think I should do as you’ve said,” she said after a while.

Gravis nodded with a smile. “You know, I’m glad that you can stay alive, assuming you survive your tempering. I’ve grown to like you quite a bit after our talks.”

Lina was taken aback when Gravis said that.

Then, she grew a bit nervous.

“Do you mean that?” she asked.

When Gravis heard her nervous voice, he immediately realized what had happened, and he quickly shook his hands.

“I didn’t mean this in a romantic way!” Gravis said. “I already have someone. I only meant in a friendship way. I’m sorry! I phrased it incorrectly!”

Lina was taken aback a bit, but she only smiled. “It’s okay,” she said. “It’s only a misunderstanding.”

Gravis nodded. “Anyway, do you know where Orpheus is? He’s the reason why I’m basically here. I want to talk to him.”

Lina was a bit surprised. “Wait, you came to the Eternal Fire Sect just to ask where Orpheus is?” she asked.

Gravis nodded.

Lina’s mind went back to everything that had happened in the Eternal Fire Sect.

Gravis had killed over 40 Ancestral Gods, and the entire Eternal Fire Sect had been thrown on its head because of it.

Gravis had changed the entire Eternal Fire Sect.

Yet, he had only been here to ask for directions?

So, if he had simply gotten his directions, he wouldn’t have killed anyone, and all of this wouldn’t have happened?

He came to ask for directions, and that had resulted in a gigantic change for a gigantic Sect.

If Lina would describe it as such, everyone would immediately ask how.

How would a question for direction end in the philosophy of a huge Sect changing?

Lina gave Gravis directions to his brother absentmindedly, and Gravis left with a smile after saying goodbye.

And Gravis was gone.

He had gotten his directions.
