Against the Gods Novel - Chapter 1
Chapter 1 – Yun Che, Xiao Che
The consciousness of Yun Che gradually awakened.
What happened… Is it still not dead? I obviously fell to the cliff, how could it still be alive! And there is no pain in the body… even no discomfort? How is this going?
Yun Che opened his eyes and quickly got up and sat up. He found out that he was hanging on a soft big bed and hanging a big red Manchester United above the bed, rendering a festive atmosphere.
“Ah! Little Che! You… You woke up!”
A pleasant girl’s voice came from his ear, and a girl’s sneak peeks appeared in his sight.
This is a girl who looks like only fifteen or six years old. It has a green and green dress. The tender and delicate snow is beautiful, the rosy lips are bright and colorful, the delicate Yao nose is tender, and the pair of beautiful surprises is like a Tan Jing Ying spring water, clear and transparent, beautiful and moving. The whole cheek is gentle and feminine, bright, and shining. At a young age, there is such grace. When you grow up, you can imagine what it is like.
Staring at the nearby girl, Yun Che took a closer look and unconsciously let two words escape his lips, “Little Aunt?”
The girl’s white wrist lifted up, Wen Yu-like hand-pressed on Yun’s forehead, her look was more relaxed, and she said with joy: “The body temperature has almost returned to normal, too good, just to be almost Scared to death. Xiao Che, is there any discomfort in your body now?”
In the face of the girl’s eyes that filled with deep concern, Yun Che woodenly shook his head. He stared openly into space with a vacant gaze.
Under the eagerness of the girl, she did not find the strangeness in Yun’s expression. She pressed him to the bed and asked him to lie back in bed.
The door was closed, and Yun Che was once again sitting up from the bed and hugged his head with both hands.
This was one of the cities in the far east located in one of the Seven Empires of the Profound Sky Continent—Floating Cloud City. And he was the only grandson of the fifth elder of the Xiao Clan—Xiao Che! He had just turned sixteen this year.
That was his current identity.
Suddenly, his memory overlapped with the Azure Cloud Continent’s twenty or so years of memory and he burst into confusion.
If I am Xiao Che… Then why do I have memories of the Azure Cloud Continent?
Is it because I traveled to this body after I died in the Azure Cloud Continent?
No! I am obviously Xiao Che! This entire room is familiar to me and I clearly remember all the events of my childhood. Everything from my memory was from personal experience and there is no way I would steal another’s memory!
Then was everything from the Azure Cloud Continent all just a dream? Was it only after I jumped off Cloud’s End Cliff that I truly woke up?
But the memories of living in Azure Cloud Continent were as clear as day. How could those twenty-four years of love and hatred be only just a dream!
What exactly is going on?
Yun Che… It should be Xiao Che now, he was awkward, his eyes finally calmed down, and his thoughts were slowly clear.
At this time, it was early in the morning, and the sky outside was not bright. Today, it was the day of his marriage with Xia. Two hours before, he was awakened by the little aunt, put on a red dress, and then drank a bowl of porridge that the little aunt had handcuffed. Then he Feeling weak all over the body…and then I don’t know anything.
I woke up until now.
At this time, a strange smell came from his lips, and Xiao Che squinted his lips, and his face changed slightly.
This is… Murdering Heart Powder!!
In those years that he lived on the Azure Cloud Continent, with the Sky Poison Pearl in his body, Yun Che learned about all the poisons present in the entire world and it could be said that there was no poison he was not familiar with. He could identify a poison’s name and effect with just a whiff. At the same time, because of the Sky Poison Pearl, he was impervious. He could not be hurt by any poison, no matter how toxic it was.
Murdering Heart Powder was made by combining a unique soul grass and the purple striae from a cherry-apple tree. If dissolved in water, the poison was colorless and tasteless. A person would lose his life ten seconds after the poison entered the body and no one would know the cause of death for it was also a traceless poison.
Xiao Che’s eyes clouded over and instantly understood what had happened.
In fact, he did not really faint. Instead, he drank the porridge containing the Murdering Heart Powder and was poisoned to death! He was born in the Azure Cloud Continent but after he leaped off Cloud’s End Cliff…. he was actually reincarnated in this world inside a dead body!
If one were to hear this, it would sound like it was a fantastical story, but that was the only reasoning Xiao Che could imagine!
Wait a minute…. if it really was like that, then this body should have no antitoxin ability. How come he was safe from the Murdering Heart Powder on his lips when the previous body’s owner died not too long ago?
A slight sense of strangeness came from the palm of his left hand. Xiao Che raised his left hand and found out that the palm of his hand was printed with a green circular mark.
The shape, color, and size of this mark are clearly the same as the poisonous beads!
In front of his majestic cliffs, he directly swallowed the poisonous beads in the abdomen. He did not know what the consequences would be. At this time, the imprint of this hand, it seems that Tianzhuzhu also followed him through!
As his voice fell, the green imprint of the palm suddenly released a green light. His eyes suddenly had no glimpse, and the brain was slightly dizzy, letting him subconsciously close his eyes and open his eyes. At the time, the world around him has turned into a sly green.
This world of green was wide and open. There were no boundaries to be seen and there was a faint aura of the Sky Poison Pearl throughout this space. After a long daze, Xiao Che understood, that he had entered the world inside the Sky Poison Pearl.
Who would have thought that inside the Sky Poison Pearl, there would be such a wide and open world! What was even more unimaginable was that after he’d eaten the Sky Poison Pearl without thinking of the consequences, the Sky Poison Pearl had actually traveled along with him, and even seemed to have become a part of his body.
Since you can come in, you must be able to go out.
Xiao Che closed his eyes and his mind was fretting. Suddenly, the green world around him quickly collapsed. When he opened his eyes again, his familiar room was in sight.
Looking at the light green mark of the palm, Xiao Che slowly smiled… Although I don’t know why such an incredible thing happened, I am not only dead but born again, and there are memories of the two worlds. Perhaps, it is God who is not guilty of the tragic fate of his two lives, and thus giving him a chance to be reborn again!
Yun Che was the victim of persecution from Azure Cloud Continent’s countless strongest individuals. Although he died in the end, he shook the world by himself; how awe-inspiring and astonishing was that! However, his body right now was only average… no, speaking without restraints, it could be considered the epitome of weakness.
In the Profound Sky Continent, profound strength was most important. Although Xiao Che was born in the Xiao Clan and was even the grandchild of the strongest Fifth Elder Xiao Lie, his profound strength was still at the first level of the Elementary Profound Realm even though he was already sixteen. He started training when he was seven and a half, entered the first level of the Elementary Profound at the age of eight, and then didn’t improve for an entire eight years. He was mocked by all of Xiao Clan. Afterward, Xiao Lie invited Floating Cloud City’s top-class doctor Doctor Situ to examine his body and shockingly found that Xiao Che was born with damaged profound veins. The damage was so severe that it was almost impossible to recover from. In this state, Xiao Che would stagnate at the first level of the Elementary Profound Realm, and could never improve further no matter how hard he worked.
“Women are really the root of troubles.” Xiao Che got off the bed, stood up, and soliloquized. But as he thought of the beauty and charm of Xia Qingyue that could tip over a whole city, he opened his mouth and laughed heartily, “Still, I get to marry such a bride, this really is a good beginning.”
