Chapter 1301 - Mission II
"Beautiful!" I muttered as I walked out of the gate; no matter how my times I see it, the forest in pink mist still takes my breath away, its too beautiful.
I continued staring at it for a couple of minutes before entering the forest and flying away when I reached deeper.
In the six days, some of my experiments could be said to have gotten successful results; that now, with the aid of the Rule Bending Power, I could use my soul strength.
Though the range is only a hundred meters, it is fine by me since everyone's soul senses had been suppressed except for mine, and not to forget there is Ashlyn, whose senses through spreading far and wide, she is the best guide anyone could find in the Miasmic Forest.
I hope soon I will be able to use my soul power completly, but till that happen, I have to work with this limited range and take help from Ashlyn to finding the enemy.
My mission is to survey the twenty kilometers range of the Robson Creek, see if there is any change in notified points and kill any Grimm Monsters that I can kill.
Speaking of Grimm Monsters, Ashlyn had informed me she had found a group of peak Princes not far from where I am. I immediately moved toward them, and seeing they are not that special, I directly used my vines on them and killed them.
Ten seconds later, I was happily inspecting sorted loot in my storage. These Grimm Monsters were above average, but they have quite good stuff in with them.
Now that I am forging body with Miasmic Astral Rose, the need for resources has increased again. The stronger I am, the greater resources I will need during my breakthrough, and seeing the rate my body, soul, and energy strengthening under it, the resources I will need will be humongous.
Just thinking about them is making my head hurt. So, I am killing any Grimm Monsters I am coming across and also have permission to Ashlyn to kill as many Grimm Monsters she can, as long as she does it quietly without any humans noticing.
It is my good luck that I am in the Miasmic Forest where all the Grimm Monsters are above average and have storage filled with resources, especially the one Apex Inheritance host I had killed.
That was werewolf had its storages filled to the brim with resources, Ive even found few things which were just level below Miasmic Astral Rose. If I did not have an amazing resource as Miasmic Astral Rose, I would have been using them in my practice.
Three hours pa.s.sed by, and I reached Robson Creek. I would have reached it soon if not for me stopping to kill Grimm Monsters every few second, in this three hours, I had killed more than hundred Grimm Monsters, all of them were Princes and a huge load of resources in storages.
It is unfortunate that of all the Grimm Monsters Ive killed; not a single one was the Apex Host that I am longing to fight again; those b.a.s.t.a.r.ds are simply rare even in a place like this.
Not only me, even Ashlyn, did not find one. I had told her to keep Apex Hosts for me, but she too did not have any luck finding one.
I landed on the ground gently without making any sound and walked toward the creek, which's a gentle calming sound I could see from a distance.
I was walking toward the creek when suddenly I heard a warning from Ashlyn and stopped on my strange and gently hid behind the tree without making any noise.
She had sensed a King Stage powerhouse, and it is just four hundred meters from me. It is so very close that if it had been a normal environment, my head would have flying in the air by now.
Kings could cover kilometers through their soul sense, anything that could come within their one thousand meters sensed by them immediately. It is the second time in three hours, Ashlyn had warned me about King's presence.
There are far more Kings here than the Apex Hosts; even if the soul sense doesn't work here, one has to be careful about not making much noise, or they will end up attracting the Kings as I did in first with Apex Inheritance Host in my first.
The presence of the King Stage Grimm Monsters scared the h.e.l.l out of me that I had started counting the trump cards that will let me escape. Fortunately, it did not come to that; Mira had killed it before it could do anything to me.
I stayed hidden for half an hour till it went far away from me.
I walked toward the beautiful creek and enjoyed its pleasant scenery and soothing sounds for a while before starting my mission.
It would have been quite a boring mission if not for having so many Grimm Monsters to kill. These Grimm Monsters may not give me much challenge, but they have a satisfying wealth.
If I kept gathering resources, I might really not have to worry about the resources when I make a breakthrough to Peak Duke and Prince Stage, but nothing could be said about it as I will have to harvest the resources for months, and many things could happen in coming months.
Time pa.s.sed, and soon it is evening; by this time, I have killed a few more hundred Grimm Monsters and gathered more resources.
I was finis.h.i.+ng with my mission when I began to hear faint sounds of pain; it is definitely coming from humans, and if anything to go by their screams, they seemed to be in immense pain.
'Ashlyn, take a look.' I asked Ashlyn immediately, who was in the other direction, while slowly moved toward it. I wanted to move as fast as possible and save the humans, but I am also aware this also could be a trap that I don't want to fall into.
A minute later, Ashlyn reached there and sent the visual through our ling, which instantly horrified me but also made me extremely excited.
