230 Chapter 227 He Got Better…
"BUT WHERE IS YOUR SOUL? I WILL TORTURE YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY!"
Stella's chest glowed briefly as a small light flowed out of it, back into Joseph's body. He opened his eyes, and stood up.
TELEPORT - Outside the atmosphere dome.
PROTECTION-FORCE DOME - Replace the atmosphere dome.

Joseph glanced at Stella with a smile, then cast NECROMANCY-LICH, to restore the phylactery in her tattoo.
Fortunately, it hadn't been necessary. The tattoo he put on her during the time skip, might not have been strong enough for several of those spells. Joseph had been worried divine powers might affect it, but it looked like the strengthening after he became runic, prevented that.
Stella chuckled, stepping out of his shadow, outside of the force dome that now contained the god NURKONG.
The system jumped in, (WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS THAT?)
'Oh, please! We were preparing to kill a god of death. The tattoo on Stella, that allows her to jump to my shadow, binds our souls. She gets first dibs on my soul when it leaves my body. You didn't think we would attempt this without some insurance, do you?'
NURKONG quivered in rage, "HOW DID YOU…? I SENTENCED YOU TO DEATH MORTAL!"
The force dome contained and concentrated the detonation. NURKONG'S scream was especially loud, to be able to hear it over the explosion. The ground was shattered. Blood oozed out of his mouth and nose, as the explosion damaged him, and the near vacuum, after all of the air was turned into water vapor, caused his blood to attempt to boil out of him.
MIND CONTROL- MENTAL STUN.
MIND CONTROL- WEAKEN WILL.
MIND CONTROL- DRUNKENESS.
The vaccum became total as the water disappeared, and NURKONG coughed out more blood that vaporized before it could hit the ground. The stun was barely resisted, but Joseph could feel the weaken will slipped through. Unfortunately, drunkenness was still resisted.
NURKONG turned to Stella.
DIVINE AUTHORITY. DEATH STELLA AURUM.
Stella disappeared as soon as he began to start talking. Joseph was hoping the vacuum would prevent him from talking, but he was a god. His authority couldn't reach her in his shadow though. She literally entrusted her existence to him when she joined his shadow. Despite being a god, NURKONG couldn't target something that stopped existing.
Stella and the gang, all jumped through Joseph's shadow and into NURKONG's, to carve him up, before jumping back.
WATER-ACID STEAM STORM.
The vacuum was gone as the inside of the force dome filled with destruction. Small explosions happened like firecrackers going off, as the dust was ignited by the plasma, despite the steam. The force dome was destroyed finally by NURKONG, and he emerged partially melted and covered in tiny molten rock bits.
"YOU TRASH! HOW DARE YOU!"
"Joseph, I think he gets weaker whenever he invokes his divine powers here in this realm," observed Stella.
"Yeah, it looks like it," agreed Joseph.
"HOW? HOW CAN YOU RESIST MY POWERS? I AM A GOD! DIVINE AUTHORITY-DESTRUCTION, TRUE DEATH JOSEPH AURUM!"
NURKONG started to spit out blood as Joseph's body began to turn to dust. He saw Stella grab the dream catcher from her purse before he floated back towards her heart.
"NOT SO FAST! YOU WON'T GET AWAY AGAIN! YOU HAVE NO BODY TO RETURN TO. SHE CAN'T HIDE IN YOUR SHADOW ANY MORE!"
Stella broke the dream catcher. Joseph's body was reformed, and his soul once more flowed out of her chest.
"Dear god, that's annoying. My old body would have still taken a few seconds to reform, but after the practice of constructing my runic body, this process is ridiculously fast," Joseph said, turning back towards NURKONG.
NURKONG was stunned, as he stared at him in horror.
MIND CONTROL-WEAKEN WILL.
The system piped up, (WHAT WAS THAT? HOW DID YOU COME BACK FROM THAT?)
'What system? During the time out, I made several of those for resurrection, even if my body was destroyed. Stella's been keeping them in her purse. They are based on REBUILD and CREATE OBJECT if I lose my body.'
(I DON'T THINK ANYONE'S EVER DONE THAT. I SHOULD REALLY LOOK IN HER PURSE SOMETIME, BUT I THINK I'M A LITTLE SCARED TO NOW.)
'Stay out of my purse or I'll hurt you,' muttered Stella, listening in through the mind link.
NURKONG was screaming as he stared at them.
"HOW? I COMMANDED YOU DEAD!"
He coughed out more blood.
"I'M A GOD!"
Joseph took a step forward.
Apparently, the last set of spells stuck. This time he was screaming in panic.
DIVINE AUTHORITY. DEATH JOSEPH AURUM.
Stella and the gang took the chance, while he was focused on Joseph, to attack. She ham strung him so deeply, he collapsed and the rest cut the tendons in both ankles and shoulders.
"WHY DIDN'T YOU DIE THIS TIME? NO! STAY AWAY! DON'T COME HERE!"
AIR-LIQUID NITROGEN JET.
EARTH-MOLTEN SALT JET.
"Please, you don't think I would fall for that shavist ability twice? Just because you are a god, did you?"
The system asked, (NO SERIOUSLY, HOW DID YOU DO THAT?)
"My mana territory changed to absolute when mana control hit advanced. Now, it's at master level. I just didn't have any experience with divine abilities being used before, to know how to block it. Every time it is used, I get better. I can block death now, but I've studied destruction enough that I'm learning to block all divine powers. I'm about 75% confident I can."
NURKONG screamed as the molten salt, plasma, and liquid nitrogen all hit him. Even being protected from the heat and cold wouldn't stop the clash of temperatures from causing damage and extreme pain. Then the meteor hit him directly between the legs.
Why a god would leave a weakness like that was beyond Joseph as he watched him curl into a ball, trying to protect himself from more damage, as he had overused his divine abilities and was growing weaker. His wounds were still closing at a visible rate, but they bled profusely before they closed, instead of like before.
Stella handed vials and bags to the gang, and they started gathering the blood.
QUAD-DOUBLE RUNE-MIND CONTROL-SLEEP.
NURKONG whimpered as he fell unconscious. Once his wounds finished closing, Joseph sent a message to Joe.
Joe, in Chuck, plugged into TRUE SUN, and surrounded by a million Wizar, cast the final spell.
(THE SOUL OF A MANIFESTED TRUE GOD HAS BEEN DESTROYED. THIS FEAT WAS PERFORMED BY JOSEPH AURUM, WITH HELP FROM STELLA AURUM, AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MEMBERS OF HIS KINGDOM. MORTALS HAVE DESTROYED THE SOUL OF A TRUE GOD. THE BODY OF THE GOD REMAINS AS A STILL LIVING SHELL.)
