Chapter 2961 The Obsession

But when he took a closer look at the figure in the distance, he realized that the woman was not her mother. She was the god of creation from the past!
There was a clear sign of a divine aura around her, but it seemed as though her power was slowly draining, so she had to retain it forcefully.
Di Hao was a little lost, for he had just gone through Gu Xijiu’s past life as a series of images using his Tracing Spell. The sudden emergence of the god of creation struck him as an unpleasant surprise.
The surrounding heat was blazing to the point where there was blood on Di Hao’s lips. However, even under the scorching sun, the god of creation’s body was still covered in a layer of ice. Her hair appeared to be slowly turning silver. She looked up and stared at the blank sky and said, “It is co cold! Freezing cold! Where… Where has the sun been?” She murmured.
Di Hao took a look at the sky and realized that dark clouds were gathering, gradually obscuring the sun. Meanwhile, strong winds started to blow in the area.
Surprised, Di Hao did not know that the weather in the desert could be so extreme. When the sun was up, the whole place felt like the interior of an oven. But once the dark clouds took over, the temperature plummeted beyond the freezing point. Everything was soon frozen. Even the sand was frozen into solid chunks.
His limbs were started to become rigid with ice. Seeing his mother struggling in the cold naturally triggered him to run towards her, but the fatty very soon stopped his attempt. It took a bite on his robes and urged, “Here she comes! Run! We have to go now!”
Without further ado, it performed the Ground Drilling and brought Di Hao underground.
The pink candle dragon looked short and chubby, but its physical qualities were never a barrier to its amazing speed in Ground Drilling. It did not take long for them to reach deep beneath the ground.
In short, the pink candle dragon’s Ground Drilling was very impressive. It could go beyond hundreds of meters underground in an instant and intended to go even further down.
“Hey, this depth should do it.” Di Hao had enough of the drilling, so he pulled its tail to bring it to a halt.
“No, not here. We will still be frozen!” The pink candle dragon continued to drill its way through the ground, all the way until it finally saw the magma within the earth’s crust. It finally came to a stop and made itself comfortable. “We should be safe here,” it said while catching its breath.
Di Hao was dumbfounded.
It was clearly overreacting. How cold could it possibly be slightly higher up?
Then, he recalled the unusual drop in temperature of the surface and was convinced that the candle dragon might have a point. He remembered that his limbs almost became frozen in just an instant.
Nevertheless, the thought of the staggering woman made his heart ache.
She reminded him of the creator of the universe who just had ended her apprenticeship with Di Fuyi. Was she only an illusion? Or did she really exist?
“Do you see her very often?” Di Hao asked the pink candle dragon.
“Not too often. She reappears every eight to ten years.”
“How many times have you seen her here?”
The pink candle dragon started using its claws to make an estimate. “Thousands of times, at least. I have seen her far too many times that I cannot even remember.” It then added, “She did not show up so often in the beginning, perhaps once in a few centuries. However, her emergence has become more frequent lately.”
“Does the sky turn cold every time she shows up?”
The pink candle dragon quickly nodded. “Yes, she is solely responsible for the extreme temperatures here. Back in the days, the weather used to be less extreme. The desert was not as vast as the current days. But every time she shows up, a little bit about the place changes. She turns the place colder and colder each time she emerges. Nonetheless, the extreme cold had also brought about extreme heat. There used to be rocky hills to provide shelter, but those soon vanished due to the unbearable atmosphere. It is now a wide expanse of flat, sandy land. I have explored the entire desert, but there is not a single place that has shelter.”
A sudden realization struck.
