Chapter 1376 - Silver Ghoul I
"Any time now," I said gently to Ashlyn as I looked at Ghoul a few hundred meters in front of me.
I have been following this Ghoul for the past hour to witness the change that will happen any minute.
It had been three months since I had entered this ruin, and today, all will be the day all the Ghouls will be transformed into the Silver Ghouls.
The diary had noted that it is quite a scene to watch and not to forget fighting it. There is quite a vivid description of the Silver Ghouls, and reading it, my fighting spirit couldn't help but get aroused.
I had made huge progress since the day I had entered this ruin; there was no single day in which I had not made substantial progress.
Currently, I am at the high level of Prince Stage and have an extremly strong body; not only that, I have made huge progress in Supreme Combat Exercise and created eight hundred and seventy-six seals of Supreme Combat Exercise, just twenty-four seals away from the ninth amethyst seal.
My Supreme Combat Exercise progress went better than I had thought; at each practice session, I would at least create five small seals.
I have come very closes to target; I now will need to create one and hundred and twenty-four seals more to have a Diamond Seal, but it will not be easy, especially after I created the ninth Amethyst Seal.
I was again daydreaming about the 'Dimond Seal' when I felt change begin the Cosmic Energy.
Its suppressive might begin to increse rapidly and with it, its density. I could feel the night growing darker and darker as the stars in the sky grew dimmer and dimmer.
As it was happening, the chest of the Ghoul which I was following begin to glow ghostly silver light, and that ghostly silver light begin to spread through its body, till its whole body begin to s.h.i.+ne in ghostly silver light.
It is not the only one; I could see silverly dots of all sizes begin to light up. These dots are Ghouls who are a distance away from me.
As the power and density of Cosmic Energy increased, the ghostly silver radiance on the Ghouls have also increased till only a big ball of silvery light remained of the Ghouls in front of me and nothing else.
"300%," I muttered in shock as I saw the big ball of ghostly sliver light dimming down. The power and density of Cosmic Energy have increased by three times, which f.u.c.k.i.n.g huge.
I have seen what happened when Comsic Energy double and how much change it brought in the strength of Ghouls, and this time, the change will be even more tremendous.
As this Ghouls will not only get a tremendous upgrade in strength, but their intelligence would also come with the par of that humans.
Till now, the intelligence of Ghouls was increasing every day, but now it had become par with humans, which will make Ghouls even more fearsome and if these silver Ghoul as strong as the diary describe them to be then fighting them, I will have had to use every bit of the strength I have.
Soon all the Ghostly radiance on the Ghoul have faded, and Ghoul appeared in front of me, and seeing it, I have barely stopped myself from gasping.
The Ghoul now looked human; there no spoilt skin or torn muscle; in one way, it looked human but seeing it, no one will consider it as human.
It looked like a corpsy version of some human that might have silver skin. The silver skin had a ghostly feel to it, and one could see faint ghostly silver smoke coming out of its hair.
Though there is one thing that makes it look like a human, the silver clothes it is wearing. It is a single set fighting suit of unfamiliar style which had covered itself to its neck.
If I had not read the diary, I would have confused about it getting the clothes, but there is a perfectly valid reason for it in a diary.
As the silver radiance disappeared, it turned toward me; it did not look surprised to see me at all, and I am too not surprised at all. As I said, the diary had a quite detailed description of these Silver Ghouls, including the mention of its range.
"It feels good not to be mindless again." It said at observed itself, including the black trident it is holding. It observed itself for a couple of seconds before it again looked at me, and this time, it swiped its grey tongue over dark silvery lips.
"I did not think I would be lucky enough to get delicacy right after Ive woken up." It said while showing its sharp teeth.
Yes, these b.a.s.t.a.r.ds eat humans.
"I am too quite looking forward to tasting your source, Ive heard its effects are quite amazing," I said, blazing anger couldn't help appear on its face.
"Good, I like the s.p.u.n.k you have. I hope it will remain but when I tear you limb by limb." It said in a slow drawl before it disappeared from its spot.
It shouted as it appearing in front of me and moved its trident toward my chest at unbelievable speed.
Its trident is extremely fast, and the closer it gets toward me, the faster it is getting. I couldn't help but get surprised by it as it is very hard to that this smoothly; even with my battle experience, I could not do what it is doing.
Its trident clashed against my sword, and huge force and necrotic energy came at me. The necrotic energy was not raw but extremely fine, which could be in a needle accurate.
Step Step Step!
All the energy absorbed by my Armor effortlessly, but I still took a step back as it smoothly forced me back with a simple shake of its trident.
I couldn't help but turn extremely alert by it and readied everything to be used at a moment's notice.
