Chapter 1209 - 1209. Crystal
Noah's individuality focused on his ambition. His law made him overcome the limits of his cultivation level, but it also had other effects.
Noah had been unable to abandon anything during his journey. His ambition had made him keep his destruction, creation, and other aspects of his existence.
That path was far harsher than other journeys due to the width of the individuality, but Noah had managed to push it to his current level. Now, the ambition that had made him unable to leave anything behind allowed him to express everything simultaneously.
Noah's new slash wasn't exactly a new technique. It used the basics learnt during his training with Sword Saint, and it applied them to all his attacks. Noah only had to pour his ambition into his blows to manifest its effects.
The countless cuts were one of the techniques that best expressed his individuality. Noah only had to slash once to create a virtually endless number of injuries on his opponent.
His slash could generate other slashes. Destruction and creation worked together to give birth to an attack that would keep going as long as Noah's ambition continued to burn.
That was what Sword Saint had taught him. Noah could pour everything he had into his slashes to create an attack that knew no end. It destroyed to create more destruction in an endless cycle.
Second Prince blew himself up again when he saw that Noah had hit him with that troublesome technique. His body reformed high in the sky, but Noah promptly flew after him to continue his a.s.sault.
The Royal couldn't regain the upper hand in the battle. He had no way to predict when Noah would activate his individuality's troublesome properties, which forced him to deplete a large amount of energy to dodge all his attacks.
Noah didn't mind that type of battle. His endurance in those conditions was nearly endless, and he barely needed to perform real attacks anymore since Second Prince always performed evasive maneuvers.
The two powerhouses continued to fight in those conditions for entire weeks. Noah never let the Royal escape from his sight, and Second Prince could only rely on his immense reserves of energy to keep dodging.
Noah and Second Prince flew above both continents as their battle continued. The other powerhouses could see them for a few days before their fight led them above the sea again.
There seemed to be no end to that trend. Second Prince never had the time to react, and Noah's battle style was flawless. He never allowed him to do anything other than escaping.
'Where does he keep all this energy?' Noah wondered as he continued to suppress Second Prince.
He had forced the Royal to perform evasive maneuvers more than a thousand times, but Second Prince didn't show any sign of exhaustion. He didn't commit mistakes either, so Noah couldn't hit him with his technique anymore.
Noah couldn't explain how anything in the heroic ranks could last so long. The energy consumed by Second Prince during the battle was enough to replicate ten rank 6 beings through the Copying Formation, and he was still going!
The relentless chase saw no changes even after one month. Noah and Second Prince remained locked in that situation, and none of them managed to catch their opponent off-guard.
Noah didn't let that situation win over his determination. He knew that if he let Second Prince go, the Royal would develop countermeasures to his abilities.
That was his best chance to end him. He only had to remain patient and never give a chance to react to his opponent.
Second Prince began to feel the pressure of Noah's approach after the two of them spent two entire months in that situation.

Noah noticed that change in his mindset since the Royal began to test different strategies during his escape.
The halo radiated from the crystal didn't give birth to any dangerous sensation in Noah's mind, but it cut away his connection with the outside world for an instant.
Noah immediately deployed the dark world and activated the Demonic Form to defend himself, but no attack came in his direction.
After the halo vanished and he could sense the outside world again, Noah retracted his spell and dark matter to inspect the environment. Second Prince had used that chance to disappear, but he had left behind half of his crystal.
Noah felt slightly annoyed that Second Prince had managed to escape him again, especially after he had spent the last three months chasing him through the world.
'I need to invent something new before I face him again,' Noah thought as he picked that half crystal. 'I didn't even manage to understand what he is.'
Noah could only sigh at that outcome, but the crystal soon caught his attention. His mental waves went on the item, and images tried to barge inside his mind at that point.
Noah quickly cut the connection with the crystal. He wanted to be careful when it came to items that belonged to the Elbas family. They knew too much about the inscription fields for him to act recklessly.
Dark matter rose from Noah's chest and entered his mind to create a few defensive layers. Part of his higher energy also reinforced his st.u.r.dy mental walls as he prepared himself to connect his consciousness with the crystal again.
Once he prepared all his defenses, Noah spread his mental waves toward the crystal again, and the same flow of images began to enter his mind.
The images were a messy ma.s.s of colors at the beginning, but Noah slowly reconstructed them. When he had completed that process, he saw King Elbas pouring his blood on a red crystal.
