Chapter 464: Half-Demon Heaven Group
This chapter is updated by Unboxbee.com
The war between Heaven and the Demon World has begun, but this war shall be put aside for the time being. Let us turn our attention to earlier.
After Dante, Vergil, Nero, and Sareth went into the spatial channel, their first stop was Heaven. As they had set off earlier, Heaven had yet to fully deploy its ambush encirclement against the Demon World, so they did not encounter the angels immediately after entering the spatial channel, allowing the four half-demons to sneak in quietly.
The Heaven of the Bayonetta world was also in a Purgatory Space. But unlike the Demon World of the Devil May Cry world, Heaven here did not cover the entire Purgatory Space. The number of angels was ultimately inferior to that of demons, so their requirements for living space were relatively small. The Purgatory Space here was also humongous, but apart from Heaven occupying a portion, the rest of the Purgatory Space reflected the human world!
This was truly a wondrous sight. In the entire Purgatory Space, on the ground were streets and buildings all of the human world. These scenes were like reflections in a mirror, completely replicating the scenes of the human world. But the difference was that only the still objects in these scenes seemed to have a physical feeling, while the moving people and objects looked very illusory, like lights and shadows.
Dante and the others looked at this sight with their mouths agape, feeling a little lost.
“They don’t seem to be able to sense us…” Sareth said. He was currently standing on a wide street. When a human figure walked toward him, it actually passed through his body. The illusory figure flickered, but it did not notice anything and just continued walking forward.
Dante and Nero nodded. They also discovered this situation. These reflections of the human world were actually because the Purgatory Space they were in was on the same spatial coordinates as the human world but not in the same space.
In fact, it was not only like this in the Bayonetta world but also in the Devil May Cry world. The Purgatory Space and the main material world of humanity overlapped. If you randomly chose a place in the Purgatory Space to enter the main world, you might appear in that place in the human world. But in the Devil May Cry world, this reflection phenomenon caused by overlap was extremely rare. Due to the expansion of the Demon World, the demons were active in the Purgatory Space and had long destroyed this reflection phenomenon.
Vergil had not said a word since he came here and was deep in thought. At this moment, he suddenly pulled out Yamato and cut a vending machine on the side of the road in two.
What he cut open was a scene reflected in the Purgatory Space. But in the real human world, the vending machine at the same place actually had a neat cut and slowly collapsed, causing the people on the street to be shocked by this sudden scene. The human-shaped figures of lights and shadows looked panicked. Then, when they found that nothing seemed to be nothing wrong, their curiosity aroused, and they surrounded the split vending machine and discussed how this thing suddenly split.
“For still objects, the reflection phenomenon is perfect!” Vergil said as he suddenly slashed at a human figure. After finding that his blade passed through it and did not cause any harm, he continued, “But moving objects don’t seem to be too affected.”
Dante said to Vergil unhappily, “Hey, Vergil! What do you think you’re doing? Don’t forget that your Yamato can cut open space. What if you really killed that person just now? I can understand you wanting to study these reflections, but your actions are too dangerous!”
“Hmph!” Vergil snorted coldly and ignored Dante. He turned around and left.
Dante had a headache. They had already found the old man, so why did Vergil still have such a terrible personality?
“Forget it!” Nero tried to smooth things over. “Have you forgotten that Osiris has already extracted Sparda’s soul fragment from Yamato? Now, it should have lost the ability to cut open space. Vergil should have known this before acting. He doesn’t have any ill intentions…”
“Yeah, ever since you found out that he’s your father, you’ve been siding with him!” Dante poked Nero’s head and said in annoyance. “But why don’t you go up and talk to him?”
“I… I don’t know what to say…” Nero said dejectedly.
“Who cares if it’s awkward! Just go up and chat!” Sareth suggested. “Can’t you just talk about the weather or something? As long as you can start, you can continue talking.”
“Then… should I try?” Nero asked uncertainly.
Dante kicked him from behind, kicking the hesitant Nero forward. Seeing Nero anxiously walking behind Vergil and trying to talk to him, Dante could not help but sigh deeply.
Then he turned and stared at Sareth.
“Why are you looking at me?” Sareth finally could not help asking.
“I feel that things have changed too fast…” Dante said in a daze. “I remember that two weeks ago, we were still thinking about how to beat Urizen. But in the blink of an eye, your foster father came. Not only did he come, but he even found my old man… Now, it has suddenly turned into a war between Heaven and the Demon World. I feel like I can’t keep up with this series of events…”
“It’s normal because you’re getting old!” Sareth dug his nostril with his little finger and said casually, “Look at your beard. It’s normal that you can’t keep up.”
If it were in the past, Dante might have argued with Sareth, but now he sighed and said, “Yes, I’m also considering that maybe it’s really time to retire after finishing this.”
Sareth looked up at him and found that his expression was unprecedentedly serious, so he was at a loss for words.
The four of them walked silently on the street. Not only were Dante and Sareth silent, but even Vergil and Nero did not say anything. In fact, both Vergil and Nero had a lot to say to each other, but the problem was that neither of them knew how to start. They could not even begin the awkward conversation that Sareth suggested…
After this strange atmosphere lasted for a while, Sareth suddenly slapped his forehead. “I say, what’s the use of wandering around aimlessly like this? Foster Father asked us to find that guy named Rodin!”
“But we don’t know where that guy is…” Nero turned around and said, “Your foster father only gave us the name the ‘Gates of Hell’, but we don’t know where this bar is. How are we going to find him?”
“Yeah!” Dante nodded. “What if he’s not in this city?”
“I think we should enter the human world to ask around!” Vergil crossed his arms and finally found a topic to participate in. He said expressionlessly, “If we find that the bar isn’t in this city, we can take human transportation to it. The reflected scenes in the Purgatory Space can’t help us move.”
“Yes, that’s right!” Dante agreed. “And after entering the human world, we might be able to find some information brokers to obtain information. I’m more familiar with this business.”
“There’s no time to lose. Let’s go!” Sareth said. “Find a weak point in the space here, and we can pass through it.”
Although he said it so simply, everyone later realized that it was really difficult to find weak points in the space here.
The reason was simple. The Purgatory Space of this world was far firmer than the Devil May Cry world’s!
In the Purgatory Space of the Devil May Cry world, due to the existence of the Demon World, large numbers of demons were constantly looking for opportunities to go to the human world. The original intention of these demons was to hunt human souls. But because of their excessive behavior, they continuously broke through the Purgatory Space barrier and caused it to become riddled with holes. It had long become fragile, so it was easy to find weak points.
But the Bayonetta world was different. The Purgatory Space barrier here was undamaged…
The four of them transformed into their demon forms and spread their wings to search the city for a long time, but they could not find a weak point to break through. With this delay, almost a day passed.
After regrouping and reporting this situation, the four of them were a little discouraged.
“If only Yamato’s ability were still here. We could have just cut open space and gone through!” Dante said in annoyance. “Vergil, why don’t you split a part of your soul and put it into Yamato?”
“Idiot!” Vergil rolled his eyes. “Don’t you know that different soul fragments will have different effects on weapons? Father’s soul fragment could give Yamato the ability to cut open space, but my soul fragment might not have the same effect…”
“Then what should we do?” Dante spread his hands. “Should we split up and try our luck in other cities?”
No one said anything. They knew very well that there was not much time left for them. After Balder took away Mundus’s soul, although no one knew what they were going to do, the success rate of their plan increased with every delay.
Just as the four of them were considering whether they should gather everyone’s strength to forcefully break the Purgatory Space barrier here, a sharp sound suddenly came from behind.
It sounded like… high heels?!
Everyone could not help but feel puzzled. In fact, although scenes of the human world were reflected in this Purgatory Space, the sounds of the human world could not be transmitted here. Most of the time, besides the voices of the four, it was extremely quiet here. Now that the sound of high heels suddenly appeared, it naturally sounded very abrupt.
With the sound of these high heels, a black figure appeared from the corner of the street.
Seeing this figure, Dante could not help but straighten his body, smooth his white hair, and whistle. “Oh, look at what I found. It’s actually a beautiful girl?!”
