Chapter 1195 - Duke
A monster is coming! It is coming through the tunnel, destroying any obstacle placed in the hole.
The hole is small that even I barely able to move throught it without feeling obstruction.
I had intentionally made it narrow so that even if the monster were to discover it, it wouldn't be able to pa.s.s through it, but now the monster is coming.
It Initial Level Duke Stage Snake monster; if I were in my prime, I would have easily killed this b.a.s.t.a.r.d, but now I am weak as an ant that this b.a.s.t.a.r.d will only have to flick the tail to cut me into two.
It is coming at me, crus.h.i.+ng every obstacle that came in its path, but it is no cakewalk for it; Ive had packed quite nasty surprises on the way that made me every inch very difficult to cross.
The monster is now screaming in agony but still cross the hole in fury; it won't take long before it appeared in front of me and kill me mercilessly.
Not only it, but the other monsters which are attacking from outside also won't take long before they destroy all the rocks and come knocking in my abode.
The only thing that could save me is my Inheritance, but the a.s.similation is going on, and I don't know whether I could survive the complete a.s.similation seeing the amount of Cosmic Energy entering my body.
My life is hanging by a thread, and I am doing everything to save that thread, but it is getting difficult, very difficult as more and more Cosmic Energy kept a.s.saulting me.
The only consolation is that the a.s.similation is near completion; it could be over in a few seconds; I have to survive these few seconds; as long as I survive, then there will be no f.u.c.k.i.n.g monster in subterrane will have the power to kill me.
Bang Bang Bang…
Seconds pa.s.sed painfully when I heard the banging on the abode wall, the monster had reached the abode, and now it is banging on its wall, trying to break.
If the abode has been in the perfect condition, it would have easily defended for a while, but its defenses had already been damaged, not to forget it constant surrounding monsters have also been damaging to it and its direct attack, as Ive said it in in few seconds that my fate will be decided.
With a booming monster finally broke through the abode wall and came face to face with me. It scremed loudly as if expected big bad enemy when but when it saw me, it had stopped in its surprise.
My skin's upper level had disappeared entirely; on some parts; my bones could be seen; I looked like some freak from a horror show that seeing even a monster had got shocked for a second.
The monster is a Snake monster that is wholly covered in a blue rock layer, the only thing that is not covered in its deep yellow eyes.
It continues to look at me several seconds before it had leaped at me; its rocky mouth is open wide, intending to gobble my head.
'Dumb Monster.' I said with a b.l.o.o.d.y smile; if this monster had not wasted a couple of seconds, it would have able to kill me, but now it is too late.
The a.s.similation is completed, Ive formally became Duke, and now it is time to deal with these monsters.
Armor started to appear on my body when the monster had reached halfway. The Inheritance Armor is still Silver and has no design except for the multicolor wings, but if a familiar person looked at me right now, they say it is changed.
The armor had changed a little; the silver color deepened slightly, and lines on it became even more prominent; it now looked even more impressive than before.
By the time armor enveloped me completely, the monster had reached near, but there is no fear on my face. There was not an ounce of fear remaining in my heart; all I have is towering excitement.
The rock snake monster had reached me, and now there was just half meter distance between us. Seeing that, I was about to summon my sword but shook my hand at that throught and instead punch toward it.
I did not use any move of mine; it is just my strength and pa.s.sive strength provided by my Inheritance, but when the punch moves, it through through the air, and I started to feel head around.
I couldn't help but feel surprise seeing that because the power is way above what I had imagined would be, and it is not just me who is surprised; even Rock Snake Monster is also looking quite surprised by the power and tries to move away from the direction of my punch as sensing its power.
A bamming sound rang out as I hit the head of the rock snake monster; it had tried to dodge the punch, but it was utterly unsuccessful; it had landed squarely on its head.
I was preparing to launch another punch when I saw a snakes head hitting the floor, and it is completely dead. I couldn't help but feel stumped, seeing that.
If it had been a common monster, I would not have been surprised. h.e.l.l, I would not have been surprised if it had been the monster from above, but this is not a typical monster.
It is an underground monster, born in a very thick cosmic energy, and top of that, it was a defensive monster and was of the same level as me; killing it single attack is no easy feat.
As I looked down at the monster, I found it's a head full of crushed and brain fluid flowing out of multiple holes of its head; the monster had died a second after my fist hit its head.
The monster did not have any chance against my attack; even defensive skin; the punch was too much for it to handle.
