Chapter 868 Volume 9 – Chapter 120: Innocent Beauty (Part 1)
When the cherry blossoms dance in the sky, it should be beautiful scenery. However, the towering cherry blossom tree was now absorbing ‘Eight Million Deities,’ demons, reincarnated beings, and so on.
It was not difficult for people to discover that this massive cherry blossom tree used these extraordinary creatures in the Yan Wuyue world as nutrients. The scene was simply bizarre.
“A world-class nightmare?” Dazhe stared at the massive cherry blossom tree in the distance.
Vaguely, he seemed to see the kimono girl, Miki, in the middle of the trunk of the cherry blossom tree. At this time, Miki’s body was integrated into this cherry blossom tree. Her eyes were closed, and her expression was solemn.
Not minding Eric’s attitude at all, the maid said calmly, “Mr. Eric’s power comes from the dreams of all living things. It’s just that nice dreams are too few and too hard to get. On the contrary, nightmare seems to be an easier alternative.”
“You deserve to be known as the knowledgeable Ms. You Ye.” Eric did not mind her exposing it. If she could not even see through his means, Eric might doubt the club’s maid in front of him was a fake.
Dazhe looked at Eric, then at You Ye, frowned, “Then, the vessel mentioned earlier?”
“Just a vessel.” You Ye said calmly, “Not only to absorb the nightmare of all the creatures that are being swallowed under the cherry tree but also to collect the negative energy of every human being who has watched the movie in our main world. Let’s put it this way. Everyone who watches that movie will feel as if they have lost their souls. In fact, they are all drawn into the story of the movie world. This story is connected with the Yan Wuyue world. The movie scene overlapped indefinitely too.”
“The people watching the movie…”
You Ye said indifferently, “After the movie is over, you will naturally wake up, and you will not stay here forever. For those who have watched the movie, they may feel something. It’s a sense of being here before. Additionally, they will feel a little tired, but it won’t hurt much. If there are negative consequences, I’m afraid Mr. Eric wouldn’t dare to release this movie world out.”
“After all, not all powerful people are like your shop.” Eric said indifferently, “Even I don’t want to disturb the order of the present world. Although if I wanted it, I’m sure the club does offer this kind of service. It’s just that I have lost more than gain.”
“Mr. Eric, you’re too modest.” The maid smiled slightly. This dream-eating tapir (Eric)  could achieve that on its own. Of course, if Eric had the plan and wanted a deal, it was undoubtedly an extraordinary wealth for her master.
If it could help her master get more benefits in the deal, the maid would not mind chatting more with Eric.
“It’s almost done. You can start now. Yahiro-dono, I have been looking forward to it for a long time.” Eric smiled slightly with his hands closed. Once he opened his hand, he tore a crack. The passage to Yahiro-dono was opened just like that.
After all, it was the guy who had stolen almost one-third of the world’s power beforehand. It was as simple as drinking water to unlock the spatial structure of the Yan Wuyue World.
“I’ll go first. You two appear as a surprise ambush.” Eric smiled confidently and darted into the crack in an instant.
He would not be afraid that You Ye and Dazhe would sit idly by. The club held supreme importance in the contracts. There were customers, who were not scared of death, trying to breach the contract, but there was no situation where the club actively violated the contract.
“Vessel… World-class nightmare?” Dazhe shook his head. “I still can’t figure it out. If we’re heading to a fight, just go already. Why do you have to make it so complicated?”
You Ye explained, “Strictly speaking, Eric just stole Yan Wuyue’s power. It’s theft that is not considered possession. Unless he abandons his imprint in the main world and completely becomes a creature under Yan Wuyue’s rules, he can use these powers unconditionally. Otherwise, he will need a lot of power to maintain the backlash of these powers. Besides, he also needs to deal with the owner of Yan Wuyue itself, which naturally requires him more power. The so-called vessel is a source to provide him with continuous power. Do you understand now?”
“Simply put, it’s similar to immigration?” Dazhe thought for a moment. “Eric doesn’t want to have the nationality of Yan Wuyue world, so he has a lot of hindrance in doing the things he wants here. That will cost him a lot of money. This money is power, right?”
“It’s quite accurate to the modern people’s understanding.” Ms. You Ye smiled.
Basically, all Black Soul Messengers were respectful to her. Even Tai Yinzi would not skip the pleasantries. Dazhe was one of its kind, but this way of getting along was not bad. No wonder the master would transform Dazhe into a Black Soul.
“There are still a lot of things I don’t understand.” Dazhe shook his head, “But it doesn’t matter. The next thing is to fight, right? That is my strength anyway.”
Without the concerns for the family, Dazhe had returned to how he was when he was young after transforming into the Black Soul Messenger. He has also regained the liveliness in the past. Besides, working for someone and receiving such a big favor, he would feel bad not to put effort into his work.
Dazhe wielded Zhan Lu Sword directly, reverting it to its original appearance. He walked towards the crack without saying a word.
“Dazhe, wait a minute. You’re inadequate to go there now.” You Ye shook his head.
Dazhe was stunned, “But when I was in the Isle of Demon, I was able to activate the Zhan Lu Sword.”
“That’s not enough. We still need to awaken your potential a bit. Only when your power is stronger, Zhan Lu Sword’s power will become stronger.”
“Do I need to kill another wave of demons? It seems that we have none of them left…” Dazhe glanced at the cherry blossom tree.
“Nope, I have another way that can instantly awaken your potential.” The maid smiled slightly.
“Great! Let’s try it out!” Dazhe did not care less, “What kind of way?”
“Just feeling some slight irritation!”
Dazhe froze for a moment. Before he could react, he saw a cluster of black flames emerging from the maid’s palm. It got into contact with him immediately. Right at that moment, a towering black flame set ablaze on Dazhe’s body.
The so-called “slight irritation” was…
“Ah! It hurts!”
Seeing Dazhe rushing directly into the crack like a rabid dog, the maid just smiled. Although she did not hate Dazhe’s relaxed attitude, it would be terrible if Dazhe’s attitude rubbed off to other Black Soul Messengers.
She got to do what was needed to manage the Black Soul Messenger for the master.
Seeing the crack gradually closing, the maid glanced back at the bottom of the cherry blossom tree and whispered, “Mr. Eric, you are not the only one who covets Yan Wuyue…”
Pillar of Heaven, the origin of the Yan Wuyue World.
In Yahiro-dono, which represented the beginning and end of everything, a faint sigh sounded. At the same time, Eric, who came through space, stood in the center of the main hall of Yahiro-dono. He looked at the Izanagi and Izanami behind the curtain.
“Greeting, you two.” Eric was as handsome as ever, giving Izanagi and Izanami a good etiquette greeting.
Behind the curtain, a low male voice spoke, “Outsider, you have stolen one-third of this world. Are you still not satisfied?”
Eric smiled and said, “If this one-third is enough for me to do it, I am unwilling to go to war with you two. After all, I also need to take a lot of risks. But if you two can give your world fragments to me, it would have avoided a cruel battle.”
It was still the hoarse male voice, heavier at this time, “You stole what belonged to me, and now you want me to hand it over. Are you not asking too much?”
“No, no, please trust me, both of you.” Eric took a deep breath and said, “I can promise that I will return you a piece of the world fragment in the future, and I will never break my promise.”
There was silence behind the curtain.
Finally, the entire Yahiro-dono oscillated slightly with only the hoarse male voice said indifferently, “Let’s fight. I won’t hand Yan Wuyue over. Instead, you should spit out the part you stole. With that, I can allow you to leave safely.”
Eric sighed and said faintly, “Izanagi, Izanami, you both can rule a world together and be by each other’s side every day. Have you ever thought that there will be such a day… What happens when you are alone?”
“Do you think you can kill me?!” Izanagi’s voice was full of rage, “This is my world! Kusanagi no Tsurugi !”
Eric did not say anything further. He just stepped back and left the main hall of Yahiro-dono. At the same time, a massive golden ray shot out from the entrance of the main hall.
In an instant, a figure rushed out of the Yahiro-dono. It was a stalwart man holding a simple long sword (Kusanagi no Tsurugi) and with a round mirror (Yata no Kagami)  floating beside him.
 In Chapter 315 in the earlier part of the novel, we know that Eric was a dream-eating tapir in Chinese mythology.
