It was quite clear that reminiscing about those past events was still a very painful experience for them.
Old Demon Desire sighed, "When we first arrived near the demonic islands, all of us were very shocked as the region of the sea here had transformed drastically. We were only able to descend onto the island with some technological support from the federation, and even at that time, the sea soul beasts here had become a lot more powerful and spiked drastically in numbers. The federation had introduced soul beast conservation laws as far back as 4,000 years ago, prohibiting people from engaging in senseless slaughter of soul beasts, so we refrained from killing any of the sea soul beasts here. After landing on the island, we began a series of investigations.

Thus, we tried to extricate the fragment of destruction, and that was when the tragedy took place."
The old man's face was filled with sorrow as he picked up a chicken drumstick from the table before taking a ferocious bite as if he were trying to vent his rage and sorrow.
A wry smile appeared on Old Demon Desire's face, and she took over the story from there. "We had almost no reaction time before all seven of us were obliterated by the destructive energy within the fragment. Our entire existences were wiped away in an instant."
