Demon King’s laughter echoed through the skies and shook the earth.
He continued to grow stronger as he consumed the souls of his predecessors one after another.
Greedy Wolf could feel Demon King growing stronger in his subconscious, and his own soul was slowly being driven out of his body.
Wait, this is my body!
“I’ll be taking over your body completely!” Demon King’s voice echoed in his head.
Greedy Wolf struggled as hard as he could, but he couldn’t even control his body anymore.
It was as if Demon King had seized the reins and was overriding his mind.
Greedy Wolf felt his eyelids getting heavier as his consciousness gradually faded away.
“No! I have to stay awake! I mustn’t fall asleep!” he reminded himself repeatedly.
Unfortunately, Demon King was simply far too powerful after consuming the souls of his predecessors, and Greedy Wolf slowly closed his eyes as he fell into a deep slumber.
The look in his eyes had changed completely when he opened them moments later.
It was a sign that Demon King had fully taken over his body.
He stretched his hands out as if to embrace the world around him for the souls that he consumed restored and strengthened him.
“This feels so good… I’ve recovered seventy percent of my power…”
However, he wasn’t satisfied with making such little progress after consuming all those souls.
Even destroying Greedy Wolf’s soul completely wouldn’t suffice for him to regain his full power, let alone surpass it.
I refuse to settle for seventy percent of my power! Even if I don’t surpass my former self, I must at least be just as powerful! With Heavenly Palace gone, there will be no one capable of standing in my way! I will be invincible once I regain my full power!
“Looks like there’s only one option left…”
According to Demon King’s estimations, it would take him many years to regain his full power if he chose to wait it out.
Naturally, he didn’t have the patience to wait that long.
The Source! If I can consume the final Source, I’ll definitely be able to restore my power! In fact, I could even become a lot stronger than I ever was!
With that in mind, Demon King broke into a sinister grin and vanished in an instant.
He arrived at the Underworld Palace seconds later, and the air was immediately filled with terrifying energy.
Vinny and the others went pale when they sensed it. Demon King had returned, and he seemed to be much scarier than before.
They wasted no time rushing over to the Underworld Palace and paid their respects to Demon King.
“Greetings, My King!” everyone chanted in unison as they knelt down before him.
None of them dared to even look up at him.
Although Demon King was using Greedy Wolf’s body, they knew better than to offend him in any way.
As such, submitting to him was the only choice available.
“Were you all looking forward to my return? You seem to have different ideas in mind.”
Demon King’s voice was deep and filled with a cold, murderous aura which sent shivers down their spines.
“I wouldn’t dare, My King!” Vinny and the others shouted in unison.
“Well, whatever. I don’t care what goes on in those little heads of yours. As long as I’m alive, your sole purpose is to serve me.”
