Chapter 1158 - Essence Rose V
'First Move: Rose Death" Just as I killed the dumbf.u.c.k Grey Earth Crockman, a tri-colored rose released from my chest. This Rose is smaller than the Rose I used earlier; it had only twelve petals.
As the rose came out its petals separated, five petals went to five Prince Stage Grey Earth Crockmen fighting my teammates while the other seven went to the Grey Earth Crockman Cursemaster.
The petals felt like they were gently gliding in the wind, but they took barely a moment to appear before their target before seeping inside their head, pa.s.sing through the obstructions as if they did not exist.
BAM BAM BAM…
"As expected," I muttered when I saw a defensive layer coming up in front of the Grey Earth Crockman Curse Master as my petals struck it.
The transparent runic defensive layer had completely blocked the attack; not a single petal was able to pa.s.s through it.
In a fight, this b.a.s.t.a.r.d was carefree; even when it looked at the Kings fighting above, there was only slight fear in its eyes. As if it did not fear the attack of it much, which means it has something that could protect it even against the Kings.
I am very surprised that my guess turned right; it is very hard to get a defensive talisman even for the Grimm Monster. Though not much as ours as humans, our energy only became suitable to create talisman at Tyrant Stage Grimm Monsters could create from the King Stage.
There are some exceptions like some Supreme Inheritances, but rare is Supreme Inheritance, and even among those who have Supreme Inheritance, how many have erudite expertise in Runology to create the talisman. Creating Talisman is extremely difficult, even if one has knowledge of it.
Even if its Defensive Talisman is of King Stage, it is extremely hard to create even for the Grimm Monster. Still, I am very happy to use my most powerful defensive move against this b.a.s.t.a.r.d.
There are two types of defensive Talismans; one is Active and the others pa.s.sive. An active defensive Talisman is one that one has to activate for it to work while pa.s.sive activated on its own when it senses the life-threatening danger.
"You b.a.s.t.a.r.d, you made me use my defensive talisman!" "You know how f.u.c.k.i.n.g rare they are; I have to risk my life to it, but not it has wasted under your puny attack." It roared loudly, it seemed extremely happy as if it wanted to tear me apart, but it had nothing of that sort, just looked at me with burning eyes.
"So, what can you do about it? Do you have any powerful move you want to attack me with it or have any attacking talisman to attack me with?" I asked mockingly, "Oh, wait, you don't have it; if you had you have used it long ago." I said again in a mocking tone.
Though my voice is mocking, my heart is beating wildly. I am treading on dangerous waters here by inciting it, if this f.u.c.ker had the attacking talisman and attacked me with it, it will make me waste precious Tyrant Level Talisma but to kill it, I am willing to take this risk.
"So, you don't have it." I mocked again, seeing its tongue-tied with no response. "Wretched human, you may have won today, but next time we meet, I will inflict you with a curse powerful enough that you will beg for me to death." It said and started to leave as it saw one by one its duke level minions getting killed by my team.
"Not so fast!" I said to it, and the next moment, vines erupted from the ground and caged its running self. Though I could not harm it with it being covered in talisman protection, it will lose that soon, and that time, I will kill it.
"b.a.s.t.a.r.d, let me go. If you are a real warrior and let me out and fight me one on one." It screamed under the vine, but I am in no mood to listen.
The Rose Vine had completely covered it; as soon as the power of a defensive talisman is over, my wines will move and pierce through every part of its body.
The talisman will stay active for a few minutes before it will run out of power, and that time, I will kill it.
I could not wait to do that; this one was the most powerful course master I've faced in battle. The Origin Rose I will get from it will be better than other Roses.
It started ranging and ranting, but I did not care to listen even when it began to beg. I am not surprised over its begging; a person may not beg when they have only a second or two, but they will surely beg where they are minutes away from them, and they know death is coming for them.
I did not listen to its begging; instead, I looked around the battle that is going on around me, my teammates have finished up all the duke stage Grey Earth Crockmen, and now they are just killing whichever Grimm Monsters is idiot enough to enter our range.
A one and half a minute later, I spotted changed into the protective layer that was covering Grey Earth Crockman and became vigilant and readied my vines to suck its blood and energy.
I was right to be vigilant; just as I s.h.i.+eld out, I found it is on the verge of self destruction. If not for me driving the vine into its heart and stopping that self destruct that very second, this b.a.s.t.a.r.d would have self destructed.
This self destruction is also one of the things that make dealing with special profession Grimm Monsters very difficult. The Hunters are advised to finish off the battle without giving the enemy any chance to self-destruct.
Two minutes later, I was finished harvesting it completely, and the Essense Rose it gave was better than all the Essense roses I have harvested till now.
