#47 – Tablet Of The Nether
“Let me explain to you about this gift box. This black gift box was given to us a decade ago. The person who gave it to us was somewhat mysterious to the state that no one could see through him, I couldn’t even tell how he looked like, everything about him was a mystery and when he released his aura, I think he was powerful to the extent that he would be no match for anyone in this world.
He had a premonition that our clan will be wiped out by someone who he can’t stop and this will be the only way to get rid of him, and the person even said that he has no guarantee, but he told me to use it only when I see that ruthless character.
Whenever he talked about the person, the person was always cold as if he was gritting his teeth, it was as if he had a life long feud with that person.
He said he would come back after five years, but he didn’t return. However, we still kept it as he said not to give this to anyone and use it when the clan is met in crisis.
He said inside this black box, there is an artefact called the Tablet of Nether, and he told me that it came from a place where I will not want to visit, but it will be more than enough to deal with the person who will come to my clan to massacre everyone here.”
Fei Yi, who was listening to the elder about the history of the artefact, was surprised. He didn’t expect someone personally came and gave this to the De Clan.
“Did you ask where this artefact originated from?”
Fei Yi couldn’t help but ask as he was really curious.
“Yes… When I asked him, he took a very long pause and he looked as if he was shivering in fright before telling me that I wouldn’t want to know where it came from, as he said if one was to go to that place where the artefact came from that person will be murdered countless amount of times as if it was a recurring process.”
Fei Yi couldn’t help but be interested and a bit disappointed. He naturally wouldn’t believe a place like that exists and believed that the person would have been lying to him as he initially thought if De Xiang knew the place, then he could have made the way there to find more artefacts as he believed that he would have managed to survive easily.
“We were scared at first because the guy was very powerful and we had no choice but to believe him.
I can vividly remember a few words he repeated to me a couple of times before giving me the gift box. However, I am not going to worry about that anymore as it has been more than five years now and I don’t think I will be seeing that person anymore otherwise he would have returned for this.”
De Xiang continued after looking at Fei Yi’s disappointment.
Fei Yi who was listening to the story was getting excited as he knows if someone very powerful was to give the De Clan this object and it was placed in the top level of their treasury, then a lot of people will end up fighting for this black gift box.
“Very well, De Xiang! I owe you this time and will kill that little kid for you.” Fei Yi said before reaching out his hands to grab the black gift box.
“I originally wouldn’t have given you this, but he was my only son, so I shall pay this debt regardless of any price I have to pay!”
“hahaha. De Xiang don’t worry, I will bring that kid corpse to you!”
Fei Yi said confidently before taking a look into the black gift box and preparing to open it, however, the more he tried to open it, the more confused he got, as all the methods he tried didn’t work at all.
De Xiang who looked at the struggling Fei Yi couldn’t help but mention.
“The person did say he has sealed this box and it will only open when it detects the person whom it wants to kill is near to it.”
“I don’t believe this at all. I don’t believe I can’t open this box!” Fei Yi roared and unsheathed his sword from his back.
What was more surprising was that the red beam that emitted from the sword started glowing brighter and brighter it was if the gift box attracted the sword.
Fei Yi who saw this started laughing and brought the tip of the sword near the black gift box, the moment the sword touched the tip of the black gift box, Fei Yi was surprised as the always red emitting sword started to emit a pitch black colour.
Gradually the flower shaped chakra started to spin, and the zig-zag lines that were covering it started to fade slowly as the black gift box vanished and revealed a black tablet with a lot of scribbles as if it was an old antique that has been found after several years.
De Xiang who witnessed this scene was surprised, he believed that the sword that Fei Yi has found was strong enough to break open a seal that even the powerful mysterious person has put, he even thought that the origin of the sword might even be from a better place or even the same place that the mysterious person has mentioned.
While De Xiang was in his thoughts, he could hear the shouts of his elders.
“What is happening!?”
“Just what in the world are those?!”
De Xiang then witnessed hundreds of demon souls behind Fei Yi that seemed to be absorbing Dark Qi, but De Xiang knew this was nowhere near the Dark Qi that neither he or his deceased son can produce, it was pure black and dark and emitted a vibe of evil.
If De Fan were alive, he would quickly tell that the quality of the Dark Qi that was being produced by the tablet is the same as the one he experienced when he faced Yama’s illusion.
In the middle of all the mass amount of Dark Qi, Fei Yi seemed to be laughing happily. De Xiang also noticed that the sword in his hand started getting thicker and thicker and the blood red light that the sword once emitted now emits a shade of black.
“Great! Hahaha! Great. Who would be able to stop me, Fei Yi, now!”
De Xiang could hear the crazy shouts of Fei Yi as if something has possessed him. De Xiang couldn’t help but take a step back as he noticed the aura in Fei Yi increase bit by bit.
De Xiang knew that Fei Yi was going to make a breakthrough but De Xiang firmly believed that the tablet has helped him, he felt regretful for giving the black gift box to him, if he knew that it will bring him benefits, then he would have used it himself.
Just when all the Dark auras started to settle down, De Xiang noticed that they were changes in the Tablet of the Nether, the tablet which looked as it was hard to break started to crumble into dust, it can be seen that all the powers of the tablet have now been used up.
“De Xiang! You have given me a great object. I will remember this, and whenever your clan does face any crisis, I will personally deal with it.”
Fei Yi declared, he knows that without the Tablet of the Nether he will never be able to reach his current level and his sword has advanced bounds, he is excited to see the power of this sword and check if the ability of the demon beasts can give him a surprise.
“Great! I will be counting on you.”
De Xiang replied politely, he knows the current him will be no match for Fei Yi, he was initially regretful, but after hearing Fei Yi’s promise, he couldn’t help but feel happy about it, having someone powerful as him as a backup will be beneficial to the clan.
“I will leave now and get that kid Yama’s head for you!”
Fei Yi said as he started to leave the building with his current appearance still looking as the leader of the Heavenly Academy, but before he stepped out of the room, he couldn’t help look back at De Xiang and ask him.
“You said, the mysterious person would repeat a few words to you, just what were they.”
“He kept on repeating how he will come to my clan, the person stated that the person who will destroy my clan would come sitting on top of a black bull, he will look like a devil.”
“Devil, did you say? Haha! De Xiang if it does happen as the mysterious person stated, don’t worry I Fei Yi, The Devil Slayer will personally slay that devil.”
