A sense of foreboding filled Merle.
He wondered if the Rule Soul Avatar was going to kill him.
He couldn't understand the Rule Soul Avatar's rationale for such an extreme step, though. Both his soul and the Rule Soul Avatar's were from the real body. So if the Rule Soul Avatar attacked him, then it would be tantamount to harming himself.
When the raging law force descended from the sky's depths, Merle's eyes widened in astonishment. The Rule Soul Avatar was indeed going to kill him.
Since Merle had a body at the Celestial God Realm, he wanted to brave the attack head-on.
But as the law descended, he discovered that his physical body was insufficient to resist that mysterious law force.
As he had no defense against it, the law force coursed through Merle's body and reached his soul.
"Xavier, do you intend to destroy me?" Merle hissed with disbelief.
The Rule Soul Avatar was silent, and his expression remained cold. He released more law force and commanded it to surround Merle.
Merle fell to his knees as agony tore through him. He felt as though his soul was being ripped.
His face twitched as the torment continued. When he couldn't bear the pain any longer, Merle grimaced and rushed toward the Rule Soul Avatar. Anguish and bitterness were evident in his expression as he readied himself to attack before he lost consciousness.
"I will kill you!"
he swore through gritted teeth just before using the last of his physical strength to attack the Rule Soul Avatar.
The incoming blow did not faze the Rule Soul Avatar. He stayed motionless as Merle's fist neared. To Merle's astonishment, his fist stopped in front of the Rule Soul Avatar's forehead as though blocked by an invisible barrier.
Merle roared as several cracks appeared in his soul.
After he struggled for a while, his soul was torn to pieces.
