Lightning Is the Only Way – Chapter 683: Power Bahasa Indonesia

The young man continued smirking, something he had been doing all the time since Gravis met him.

“How about I show you?” he asked. “Maybe you will be able to get to the correct conclusion on your own.”

Gravis only raised an eyebrow. How was he supposed to know a person just by them showing something? Gravis didn’t know anyone as powerful as this person. By now, Gravis was sure that this person had not lied when he said that he even traded with his father. Being able to see so much and being able to guide Gravis to understand a level four Law was not something easy.


The young man’s body transformed, and when he was done, Gravis’ eyes opened widely. He knew that body very well!

The young man was not a human but a beast.

He had raptor-like legs, a thin and flexible waist, four arms, a wide chest, and a reptile-like head. His black scales seemed to absorb all the light, leaving only a black hole in the shape of a body behind.

This body was nearly identical to Gravis’ body!

Yet, there were some minute differences. For example, the young man only had four arms instead of six. Additionally, his head was shaped less like an alligator’s head and more like a dragon’s head. Instead of having a wide mouth, his mouth was long and thin, with powerful teeth poking out. On top of his head was also an imposing horn that stretched to the front.

Gravis just couldn’t believe it! He was pretty sure that he was not related to the guy. Yet, the beast in front of him only looked marginally different from him. If one saw them together, they would believe that they were father and son.

Yet, how would that be possible? Not even nearly enough time had passed for any of his children or grandchildren to become so powerful. It was impossible that this beast was related to him.

Then, why did he look so similar!?

The young man chuckled a bit when he saw Gravis’ reaction. “This is one of your weaknesses, Gravis. You should work on that,” he said with a smirk.

Gravis narrowed his eyes. “What do you mean?” he asked.

“You see my body and immediately think that the look of my body has something to do with you,” he said as he clenched one of his fists. “Do you honestly believe that nobody else would be able to create a similarly powerful body to you? Do you think you are the first person or beast that ever came up with the idea to create this body?”

Gravis sighed. “You are right,” he said. “Instead of considering that other beings can also create this body, I immediately assumed that you had this shape because of me. Yet, you probably had this body far longer than me.”

“Correct,” he said, his dragon head still smirking. “So, can you guess who I am?”

Gravis looked at the young man with intensity. The conversation Gravis had with him also shot through his mind.

‘Wait!’ Gravis thought as he scratched his chin. ‘He said, I have something that once belonged to him. Additionally, he is a powerful beast and knows nearly everything of my life.’

Gravis looked at the sky. ‘This whole thing is starting to make sense. Mom couldn’t watch my life in the middle world, and she’s at the highest normally achievable Realm.’

‘Yet, that doesn’t mean that it is not impossible for someone on that level to watch me in a different world. My mother has been granted her own power, and she may not be able to use her powers perfectly. It’s very possible that beings on her level can look through the borders of the worlds.’

Gravis’ eyes shone as he looked at the black dragon-like being. “I think I know who you are,” he said.

“Then tell me, who am I?” the young man asked.

Gravis transformed one of his arms into its beast form and looked at it. Sure enough, they looked identical.

“You are the owner of the black scale that my father has gifted me,” Gravis said. “That should also have been that trade you mentioned earlier.”

The young man chuckled and transformed back into a person. “You’re correct,” he said. “A little more than twenty years ago, your father came to me, wanting to trade for one of my scales.”

“You should know that it is beneath your father to steal something from someone as weak as me, even if I am one of the most powerful beings in existence. He gave me quite some interesting trinkets, and I gave him my scale.”

“I didn’t know the reason why he wanted a scale of mine, so I continued watching. I wanted to know what he needed my scale for. Can you imagine what I have felt when I saw him handing over my scale to you?” he asked.

Gravis sighed. “Rage,” he said.

“Correct, rage,” the young man said with a bloodthirsty smirk. “My scale, the scale of one of the most powerful beings in existence, was handed over to some mere Unity Realm ant. Yet, my curiosity was already piqued, and I wanted to see your death. One scale can only protect you so much.”

“But when you slowly started becoming more and more similar to me, I realized that you had quite a smart head on your shoulders,” the young man said. “You created a very similar body to mine without even knowing how I look like. As someone so weak, you have managed to create a similar body to one of the most powerful beings in existence.”

“And when I saw you suddenly taking out the body of a lower Heaven, I knew that you were not simple at all,” the young man said. “I had no idea that you have killed a lower Heaven before. That is quite impressive, even for my standards.”

“I was a bit annoyed by your emotional tantrum when you heard that you needed kids, but I know humans. This is just how you humans are. Then, when I saw you destroying the entire world just for your own power, I started appreciating you.”

“This is how it has to be,” the young man said as he clenched one of his fists brutally. “The weak die and the strong become stronger. So, in short, I like you, kid,” he said with a smirk.

This explained how this person knew so much about Gravis. Gravis had not only been watched by the Heavens and his father but also by this beast. Yet, Gravis couldn’t fully agree with his assessment.

“I’m not as good as you make me out to be,” Gravis said with a sigh. “I have been granted the best starting position and have received a lot of help along the way. Even the highest Heaven spared my life in order to train me.”

“So?” the young man said with a smirk.

Gravis frowned. “What do you mean with so? I haven’t achieved everything on my own.”

“So?” the young man repeated with a smirk.

Gravis furrowed his brows, but the young man chuckled again. “You humans always overcomplicate things, Gravis,” the young man said.

“There is one singular truth in the world. It is only three words long. That is not because it only describes a little bit of the world but simply doesn’t need any more words. Any additional words would contaminate this singular truth with irrelevant nonsense.”


The young man closed his fist slowly, but when he closed it, an unimaginably loud boom went throughout the city.

Everything halted.


The entire city was dead silent.

No one was moving as the colors faded from the world.

Whether they were beggars or the leaders of the most powerful organization in the city, everyone was equally frozen in grey stillness.

The bustling hub of the highest world had been thrown into silence.

The young man only looked at Gravis with a bloodthirsty grin.

“Power. Is. Everything!” he said slowly.

Gravis felt his insides shake. For some reason, these words hit his very being.

“Outside power is power. Laws are power. Your body is power. Money is power. Equipment is power. Everything, no matter if you achieved it yourself or not, is power. Someone that has achieved everything themselves might feel superior, but when they get killed by an expensive Formation Array from some young prince, they are still dead.”

“In their eyes, the young prince is far weaker than them. Yet, they are the ones lying on the ground in multiple pieces. Heaven could have chosen anyone in all the worlds to get his tempering, but he chose you. Is that luck? Is this all because of luck?”

Gravis only remained silent.

“No, it isn’t. Heaven is not an idiot. If there were someone more suited, he would have chosen someone else, but he chose you. So what if a lot of your achievements come from more powerful people helping you? It is still your power!”

“Is it fair? Of course not! But fairness is only a concept that you humans created to feel satisfied with your weakness. I can kill everyone in this city for no reason. Is that fair? No! So? They will die anyway, and absolutely nothing will happen to me. This is power, Gravis. There is no fairness or unfairness in power. Power is just power.”

Gravis’ mind was going crazy as he started to think about his power. He had felt ashamed that he had been granted so much, but should he really be ashamed?

Yet, the young man continued as the city was still locked in stillness. “Today, I helped you in understanding another Law and more about yourself. This is also outside power, but who cares? It is power! Anyone that looks at you in disgust for accepting my help will lie in a pool of blood in front of you.”

“A pile of flesh has no opinion.”
