Lightning Is the Only Waychapter 605: bargain

The Light Immortal didn't want to go just like that, apparently. Gravis guessed that she was probably angry because she had to wait for more than 50 years for her Ascension. Now that she had the power of an Immortal, maybe she felt like she had a chance against Meadow.

Gravis was pretty sure that the Light Immortal actually didn't have a chance. Gravis had felt Meadow's Battle-Strength, and he knew that it was more than enough to triumph over an Immortal that had only comprehended a single level three Law.

The Light Immortal heard Meadow's words and narrowed her eyes. "It depends on your next words, Emperor," she said with righteousness.

"My words, eh?" Meadow commented. "How about these words: You're a cunt! That doing anything for ya?"

The body of the Light Immortal shook when she heard these words. A mere Emperor had just insulted her, and she couldn't accept something like that.

Yet, how old was the Light Immortal, and how much experience did she have? The Light Immortal wasn't some newborn beast that never went through any tempering. She was very good at judging the power of an enemy. She had to be. Otherwise, she would have already died.

When she thought about the power that Meadow had shown, she only felt a pit in her stomach. She knew that she had a chance of winning, but it was only that, a chance. Additionally, fighting an Emperor wouldn't even feel any good. Knowing that one was several times more powerful than their enemy and still not being able to win was frustrating and humiliating beyond belief.

So, even though the Light Immortal thought that she had a shot at victory, she decided against attacking Meadow. It wasn't worth the risk.

"How do you intend to distribute the lands and seas in this world?" the Light Immortal asked with power. "There is only one land Ultimate left, and there are two sea Ultimates."

"In comparison to most other beasts," the Light Immortal said, "I care for my side. Thus, I want to know how you intend to redistribute the lands with the new power dynamic."

Meadow looked around at the present Ultimates and thought for a bit. After some seconds, she groaned. "Oh, fuck this," she said with frustration. "I can't be bothered with some stupid shit like this. How about this? The Ultimates simply don't interfere in anything anymore, and only the other beasts get involved in the war. Does that sound good?"

Obviously, the Light Immortal wasn't happy when she heard that. "When you land beasts had the upper hand, you Ultimates constantly involved yourself in the scuffles. Now that you are weaker, you want that no Ultimates get involved?"

"Really? That's your problem?" Meadow groaned. "Fine, then I abandon my title as ruler and become an Ultimate of the land beasts. Then we have a two versus two situation. You fine with that?"

The two sea Ultimates took deep breaths while the Light Immortal gritted her teeth. This would be even worse! What could the sea Ultimates even do if Meadow got involved?

"You are obviously not on the level of an Ultimate," the Light Immortal said. "You can't involve yourself in these scuffles."

"Sure I can," Meadow simply shot back. "Imma just do it. Whatcha gonna do about it? You want to give me some high-quality light? Shit, son, I haven't had some good photosynthesis in a while now."

The Light Immortal grew frustrated beyond belief. To her, this whole situation felt unfair. Meadow had all the power, and she didn't want to follow proper etiquette. Of course, the Light Immortal forgot that she was currently two levels higher than Meadow. The irony of her thinking that this was unfair was, sadly, lost on her.

"Cool, less work for me," Meadow said. Then, she turned to the three remaining Ultimates. "Alright bitches! You heard us. No more meddling in the playground of the kids. If you wanna crack some heads, you better go visit another Ultimate."

The Ultimates weren't happy with this situation. The two sea Ultimates felt like they should have all the power now, but due to Meadow, they couldn't show their power. Meanwhile, the Lightning Ultimate felt like shit since there were two sea Ultimates left. If he wanted to temper himself, he would need to fight both of them at once. In his eyes, this would be suicide.

Sadly, precisely this mindset was the reason why the Lightning Ultimate was in the position he was currently in. Sary had been ready to fight three Ultimates at once to understand a level three Law, while the lightning Ultimate didn't even dare to fight two. Chances were high that the Lightning Ultimate would never become an Immortal with this mindset.

Gravis shook his head when he saw the Lightning Ultimate's expression. He was very good at judging other people and beasts, and he could take a good guess at what the Lightning Ultimate was currently thinking. Gravis found it sad that someone with the lightning element had such a mindset.

Lightning was aggressive and would attack anything. Lightning wouldn't fear any retaliation and destroy its opponent. Yet, the Lightning Ultimate had not only grown complacent, but he had also grown envious of others and feared danger.

Yet, this was something that could happen if one wasn't influenced by the elements.

Back in the lower world, due to the peculiar cultivation technique of the Cultivators, their mindsets had been severely influenced by their elements. When Gravis had returned to the highest world, he had heard that such a situation wasn't common.

Back then, he had been told that there was a cavalcade of elemental cultivation techniques that didn't influence the mindset of the Cultivator with the element's temperament. Thus, there were deceiving lighting Cultivators, pure-hearted darkness Cultivators, oppressive wind Cultivators, and a lot more seemingly contradictory people.

They became smarter as they grew in power, which allowed them to ignore instincts and value their logic above their emotions.

One could say that one had more freedom of choice this way, but more freedom also came with more risk. If one didn't properly use this freedom, their path to power could become crippled due to their unfitting mindset.

"Keep to your word, Emperor," the Light Immortal said to Meadow. "If I hear that you broke your word, I will find a way to return to this world and kill you."

"Yes, yes, shut up and leave," Meadow said nonchalantly as one of her petals waved in dismissal.

The Light Immortal grew even more furious since Meadow didn't take her seriously whatsoever. Yet, instead of attacking, she simply flew upwards into the sky and vanished. She had to leave before she would make a mistake she would regret.

The other three Ultimates were unhappy due to their own reasons, but there was nothing they could do. Meadow was, by far, the most powerful being in this world, and they couldn't contest against her. If they liked it or not, they had to follow her.

Some seconds later, Meadow looked at the three remaining Ultimates and sighed.

"Man, the ranks of the Ultimates has become a sausage-fest."

The three Ultimates weren't sure what she meant, but Gravis had to laugh loudly when he heard her.

It was true. All three remaining Ultimates were male, and all Ultimates that had managed to ascend had been female.

Now, there were only guys left.
