Lightning Is the Only Way – Chapter 572: Rare Opportunity Bahasa Indonesia

The Grand Elder was only using 10% of his power? Gravis already felt it difficult to resist. If the Grand Elder used 20%, there was a genuine possibility that Gravis would immediately turn into nothingness.

The future possibility had become a present possibility and then had transformed into a present certainty. Someone could simply turn him into nothingness with but a thought, which was absolutely terrifying to Gravis.

Thanks to his unique Spirit, Gravis could do these things to every lightning cultivator and lightning beast. Yet, now, some beasts and cultivators could also do the same to him. Knowing that some people or beasts could kill him with just a thought was horrifying to Gravis.

The Grand Elder had noticed Gravis’ change of emotions and furrowed his brows. “Is it worse than you’ve thought?” he asked.

Gravis took a deep breath while he continued resisting. “Yes. If I didn’t trust you fully, I would have already attacked out of fear.”

The Grand Elder nodded. “I can understand you. When I realized that you can kill me with only a thought, I felt the same way. I know this feeling very well.”

“Please continue, but keep the intensity as is,” Gravis said.

The Grand Elder nodded again.

Around two hours passed in which Gravis fought against the force trying to pull him apart. As time passed, Gravis got used to the sensation and managed to resist it without having to use all his power.

Gravis’ eyes shone. ‘It has become easier. This means there is a way to increase my resistance. Yet, this doesn’t make much sense.’

Beasts didn’t have Will-Auras. Yet, they still had certain resistances to Will-Auras. Every beast always had a will that corresponded to their Realm. They just couldn’t use it in an active manner. For example, in lower world terms, a level one Lord, which was an Initial Unity Beast, had a will that corresponded to an Initial Unity Realm cultivator with a level two Unity Will.

In comparison to beasts, the Will-Auras of humans were much more dynamic. At some Realms, their Will-Aura could even be weaker than their Realm. Yet, it could also be vastly superior to their Realm. Gravis was a good example.

Since a level one Emperor was around two levels higher than a level five King, the Grand Elder, as a level two Emperor, was four whole levels above Gravis, a level four King. Gravis’ Will-Aura was at the upper half of a level three Emperor, but that was only the theoretical power of his Will-Aura.

In front of the Grand Elder, Gravis’ Will-Aura was suppressed intensely. Without using the Law of Suppression, Gravis’ Will-Aura could completely suppress a level four King. Even a level five King would be suppressed by around 60%.

Yet, Gravis wouldn’t even be able to suppress a level one Emperor at all. Due to the level suppression, Gravis’ powerful Will-Aura would be fully canceled out by a level one Emperor. The Grand Elder was a level two Emperor, and the level suppression was so powerful that if he had a Will-Aura, it would be Gravis who would be incredibly suppressed.

‘The Law of Composition uses the will as a medium. This means that if it becomes easier for me to resist over time…’

Suddenly, a fire of motivation appeared in Gravis’ eyes.

‘My Will-Aura is becoming stronger!’ he thought.

The Grand Elder noticed the massive change in Gravis’ eyes and lifted an eyebrow. “You seem like you found something you like?” he asked.

Gravis nodded. “I have told you about how Will-Auras work.”

The Grand elder nodded.

“Resisting this Law allows me to increase my Will-Aura. You should know that the Will-Aura is the most important thing for a human’s Battle-Strength. If I can’t suppress a beast more powerful than me, I won’t even be able to react to their attacks. This is, by far, the biggest component in my Battle-Strength,” Gravis explained.

“Oh?” the Grand Elder said with interest. “So, I can increase your power just by doing this?” he asked.

Gravis nodded.

Then, the Grand Elder smiled. “You don’t need to ask, Gravis,” he said. “As a Judge, I also receive access to Law Comprehension Areas by finding traitors. That one Elder you found a couple of years ago and the most recent one have given me many rewards. I was already trying to think of a way to help you in return.”

Gravis relaxed as he heard the Grand Elder’s words. “You would do that?” he asked.

The Grand Elder laughed. “Sure! This isn’t much harder than breathing for me. Additionally, your explanations about how Laws work have also helped me in finally understanding Punishment Lightning. As far as I’m concerned, what you have done for me far outweighs what I’m doing for you right now.”

Gravis released a sigh but then remembered something. “What about the Ultimate’s Meet?” he asked as he turned to the Empress.

“You have about 23 years until we need to go,” the Empress answered in a bored manner. “The Grand Elder still needs to do his job, so it’s better that you remain here during your training.”

When Gravis heard that, he sighed again. This was plenty of time. Then, Gravis turned back to the Grand Elder. “Thank you,” he said sincerely.

By now, the Empress and the Grand Elder were used to Gravis’ weird way of talking, so they just let his thanks slip by without a comment. The Grand Elder and Gravis went to the Mountain of Pride’s side since other beasts would also visit occasionally. Staying in the middle would be awkward.

“Alright, let’s start,” Gravis said to the Grand Elder. “Please use 11% this time.”

The Grand Elder nodded.

“Master,” Morus suddenly said from beside Gravis.

Gravis furrowed his brows. He was just about to temper his Will-Aura, but his servant interrupted him. “What?” he asked with annoyance.

“A traitor just contacted me. A lot of them still don’t know that I’m now following Master. How shall I proceed?” he asked respectfully.

Gravis blinked a couple of times in surprise. Then, he looked at the Grand Elder with a questioning gaze.

The Grand Elder combed his beard in thought.

“It seems like your servant will go on a tour for the next couple of years,” he said with a smirk.

Gravis’ eyes shone when he heard that. “Yes, I think he will.” Then, he turned to Morus. “Morus, travel around the Icy Pride Empire and show yourself as much as possible without seeming suspicious. If any traitors contact you, give them some unimportant information to reduce suspicion. Remember the names and give us a list of traitors every year.”

“Yes, Master,” Morus said respectfully as he left the Mountain of Pride.

Meanwhile, the Grand Elder continued smirking. “This will be profitable. Seems like my Inquisitors will have a lot to do in a year.”

Gravis nodded. “Make them gather in a year when Morus returns. This should be the perfect opportunity to catch all of them.”

The Grand Elder chuckled. “That’s what I had in mind.” Then, the Grand Elder put his hand on Gravis’ shoulder. “You ready?” he asked.

Gravis nodded.

Then, the insane pain returned even stronger than before. Yet, instead of despairing at the pain, Gravis felt great. This pain symbolized his growth. The more pain he felt, the more powerful he would become.

“Make it 12%,” Gravis said through gritted teeth.

The Grand Elder felt a bit nervous when he heard that, but he complied.

Gravis started grunting in pain as blood flowed out of his mouth due to how hard he was gritting his teeth. The Grand Elder felt uncomfortable when he saw that.

“Should I-“

“Make it 13%!” Gravis nearly shouted.

The Grand Elder was a bit taken aback. “Are you sure?”

“Do it!” Gravis shouted.

On this day, the Grand Elder realized that Gravis was a masochistic maniac.
