Chapter 5: Ceremony of the Devil, Part 3—Fallen—translated by lucathia (proofread by Taffygirl13, Minthe, & Trespasserby)
The angel’s lower half had already turned into a lump of mud, and its upper body was slowly sinking into the mud. The angel struggled to use both hands to grab onto the tragic Jian Zhi but was unable to touch anything, screams resounding endlessly.
Lu Yang had Slay hover horizontally before him, but he hesitated a bit about what to do. He felt that this guardian spirit was about to wink out of existence even without his interference. This wasn’t strange; there were plenty of cases where a guardian spirit would vanish along with the target that they guarded when the target passed away. It was just that this situation was particularly devastating.
Under the assault of the shrieking, Jiang Ziya asked with difficulty, “Lu Yang, c-can you stop the angel?”
“What do you mean by stop?” Lu Yang asked in confusion, “The angel isn’t attacking at all and will probably disappear once completely submerged.”
“Can you help the angel transcend?” Jiang Ziya really couldn’t bear to watch the angel get torn apart by Slay.
“You want me to help an angel transcend?” Lu Yang nearly choked. “Don’t you feel that these are two different religious notions? Besides, the angel is about to sink. I won’t make it in time no matter what I do!”
Jiang Ziya braced himself and said, “Would you make it in time to slay the angel? As long as you can make it so that the angel won’t continue to scream like this.”
