Mika was standing atop a hill, gazing down the the burning village he once ruled. The once hustling and bustling village between the two kingdoms, where trade and exchange of cultures was prominent, bards on the streets singing and dancing in trance, mercenaries drinking, laughing and joking with each other, children playing and running around and lovers walking along the streets teasing each other, all of it lay to waste. There was no laughter, no singing, no jokes, no whispers of lovers, just screams of agony, clanging of metals, angry curses of soldiers and hymns of whisper to summon catastrophic magic. Just destruction.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkhhZyxVSu9

Mika had a solemn expression. Gods are unfair. He thought. He left the village a month ago to gather more materials for expansion of the village, but upon his return, all the plans have turned to dust. 877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5SWpGHNUFs

Mika was the cultivator of the light elemental path as the world saw it which bestowed upon him fast speed and healing powers. He revered the Gods for bestowing the living things in this world the ability to absorb the essence present between the earth and the heavens. He was the model for the practitioners cultivating in the Holy Church. But little did the world knew that Mika was not just able to sense the light element, but darkness as well. He was one of those rare cultivators, one in a million people who could comprehend the laws of elements that govern the heavens and fused the two elements together. By merging light and dark attributes, he broke through and transcended by shedding his mortal vessel into purified one. 877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVdJuh5QH0E

Mika was startled awake from his dazed state, and turned his gaze towards the two people who seemed to be in a stalemate. One was wearing a crimson red robe with a dragon embroidery on it. He had carried a heavy sword, and was excuding a thick aura, an aura that could block anything thrown at him. The other man, wore a fine blue robe with a tiger embroidery on it, he held two fine sharp swords, emitting a sharply condensed aura, which could pierce anything.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2DXFZQi1t6

"Jim. I was sure that this time you would have died under my heavy sword but who would have thought, we broke through the same time!" boomed the crimson fellow, seemingly disappointed with the outcome.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcLpkKY7O6Q
877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCVowIouUrt
"Haha, Gods sure play fair." snickered the fellow in blue robe, pretty dissappointed with the outcome as well.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb83A6CKgcn
877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYiWZfy6ZtX
"The ruin of every house will not be enough to compensate with your lives." Their short exchanged was interrutped by a voice will with grief and fury.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡddA1mP93dg
877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqKoCznc5G9
Mika was right in front of them in a flash, he was in despair. He looked like a wounded animal, heaving huge mouthful of breaths, who could not be healed even if he destroys everything in his path.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMdriorB9fw
877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVlwkJ4gOxE
Both cultivators and commanders of their armies erupted in laughter. 877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC4F5Ooczum
"What are you going to do? Hit and run? heal us?" Boomed the man in crimson robe.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3Xc3lJ6dZB
"All you have is speed and healing powers! What can you do to us? Annoy us to death?" snickered the man in blue robe.
Mika has already reached a new level in power, but he never displayed it because there had never been a situation where he could flaunt his powers in order to subdue any subjects. His small village had a natural benefit in geographical location on the border of both the kingdoms, where he did not need to exercise much power and only administer it to make sure peace and harmony existed. People in both kingdoms only knew that he was a devout follower of the Holy Church and practiced in the light element. Hence the majority of the villagers were believers as well, and would seldom fight for power and only survive, living the life to its fullest.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDEdUtxqLR4
He was awake now, he now knew and despaired in not able to protect the lives of his fellow villagers.
"Massacre is not something I indulge in but today is an exception." With that said Mika's aura erupted. This aura was the polar opposite of light element,. It was dark, gloomy, and housing enough power to rot and decay anything it comes in contact with.
First Step, the green shrubs around Mika started to decompose and wither one meter in radius around him.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI6yOVvH98V
Second Step, the aura was swept passed the 5 meters and engulfed both commanders.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWArkyaBRK5
The commanders were shocked but soon their hearts were filled with dread. Caution overcame them as sense of crisis filled their hearts with imminent threat. 877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvla0XyO54v
They both started to circulate the heavenly qi stored within them as their bodies gradually covered itself with a thin layer of water and wind elements. Trying their best to resist the suffocating aura of darkness.
They both glanced at each other, coming to an understanding. If we cannot kill each other might as well join hands to kill Mika. They both brandished their swords and erupted with their respective heavy and sharp auras.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjcBPgKZG1W
"Take this! Devastating Sword!" said Dave in a booming voice as his heavy sword drew a circular arc with rumbling sounds, with might enough to create a huge crater.
"Piercing Sword!" shrieked Jim, as his sword zapped through the air, shredding it, with power enough to slice the heavens.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkH9wO6vfT2
Mika just stood there, unaffected by the two incoming sword slashes. He raised his right hand and a barrier was materialized around him. Repelling both the attacks. A translucent sphere of 3 meters in diameter was around Mika, with him in the center.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5nFEsIBurT
"You, you....r.r.....reached the Purified Body Stage!!!!!" Both the commanders were dumbstruck and shocked to the core as they stared Mika with disbelief! They could not believe it! It was enough shock to cultivate in the dark elements but to break through to next stage which was so difficult that in both kingdoms only two people were able to cultivate to that level and they were the emperors of the kingdom, the deities who ruled their respective domains.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDjt22vXckF
But a mere ruler of small village to reach this stage. This was enough to make their scalps numb in fear as their bodies trembled with fear.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVUxeRHxn58
"So what? This achievement still could not prevent my people from perishing!" Spoke Mika in trembling voice but the fury in his eyes was imminent. The time was nigh, he raised his hand and pointed his index finger at the burly man. The pointed finger condensed the the dark elements and formed a small sphere in front of it. It then beamed through the air by the flick of his finger.
Dave knew it was too late to regret and was too shocked to react in time when the sphere zapped through his heart and the decay spread throughout his body. He could not even utter a word as his body decomposed and turned to ashes which scattered away with the winds.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPIRPi1w4fN
Jim was flabbergasted and startled from his stupor. "Mika, do not be rash, the Emperor would be furious if you lay a hand on me" said Jim, trying his best to appear collected but his heart was in turmoil.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGvFyYxqS8w
Mika looked at Jim straight in the eyes and said "This river of blood formed from the slaughter of innocent, sprinkled on the ice cold stones will be repaid with blood to whoever obstructs my path, be it your emperor or the Gods" While speaking he condensed a black sphere and flicked his finger.
In but an instant, Jim perished, not being able to refute or convince Mika otherwise.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2sbrLsCS1Q
His last thoughts were of regret and sorrow for not being able to see through Mika.
Mika looked up at the heavens. His heart filled with dread of the lost lives he should have protected. He sighed, cursing himself for the way he lived his life. He vowed to show his might and authority if there is a next time he needs to protect someone.877Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJP0u9QKoQX
He turned towards the soldiers who were sweating cold beads on their foreheads.
Mika unleashed his wrath.ns 220.127.116.11da2
