Chapter 1381 - Silver Pearl
Clang Khutch Khutch…
More and more injured begin to appear on its body, except for its head, neck, and heard; everything is getting injured, which does not affect it much; not to forget everything is healing at a crazy rate.
Suddenly my vines moved from its fatal spots and targeted its arms. Seeing that, 'O' couldn't help but formed on its lips and its cursed as it saw its impending doom.
At that exact moment, my third vines decapitated it as its Trident has become a little slow to defend.
Despite its huge experience, it had neglected to defend its hands, which were holding its weapon properly. I injured the hands with my two vines before targeting the neck, which I was not able to defend due to slight laxness in its hands.
As its neck decapitated, it turned into smoke like the rest of the Ghouls; the only difference is that the smoke it had turned into is Ghostly silver rather than the usual grey-black.
I caught its core and looked at it, which looked like the usual necrotic core except for a few faint silvery lines.
I was looking at it when I suddenly got a feeling from inside me; it is from Nero who wanted to eat it. It is the first time Nero reacted in months; ever since I had entered this ruin, Nero had been silent in his cac.o.o.n.
If it had been other times, I would have given it, but not now; I will use this necrotic core as soon as I reached home before coming back to fight more Silver Ghouls. The cores I will get from those Ghouls, I will feed them to Nero.
I had just thought that when suddenly Ashlyn chirped and came below. I landed on her gently, and we streaked across the ruin with the speed that any Silver Ghoul incapable of following.
Ashlyn and I had been daily practicing this move for the past month. After reading the diary, I know I needed a running move to incase I had come across the Ghoul, which I could not defeat.
Even the two excellencies had to run away from Ghouls when they were run, so there was nothing shameful about planning my running strategy.
This time was not practice run like before, six silver Ghouls were coming toward me, and I had to run like h.e.l.l from them as with less than 5% energy remaining in my Tower's storage, I am no condition to fight them.
So, I ran away as I practiced for a month, and honestly, instead of feeling shame, I am feeling quite proud of myself for running away from those Silver Ghouls successfully.
"I a.s.sume you don't have any cores from the Silver Ghouls you killed, do you?" I asked Ashlyn.
She said no, seeing that I couldn't help but sigh.
Ashlyn had fought the Ghouls as she usually does and consumed their cores right after. Unlike me, who could only eat the 'Green Source' that contain in the Necrotic Core, Ashlyn could eat the whole core without any problem.
When I saw her doing that for the first time, I had quite a scare as eating whole is like eating the table that had the full capability of turning you into Ghoul, and there is no surviving from it through any method.
Ashly had eaten the whole core and even burped after eating it. After eating hundreds, even thousands of core, there is no sign of her turning into the Ghoul. I would have really hated it if Ashlyn had turned it into some weird Ghoul bird.
Soon we reached one of the hidden spots that Ive had marked on the map and take out my abode and went inside.
After coming inside, I removed all my Artifacts and clothes except for my underwear and sat in the center of the living room, and took out the Necrotic Core of the Silver Ghoul.
I looked at Ghoul for a second before placing it into the device, which smoothly cut the core into two and revealed a faint silver peal. Yes, 'the Green Source' of the Silver Ghoul is solid.
I took out the silver pearl and put it into my mouth without waiting; as I did, I felt a slight cooling sensation on my tongue, and other than nothing happened for a second before the whole pearl suddenly melted.
The melted liquid turned into energy. This energy is entirely different from the energy that was converted from the 'Green Source' before; it is thick, thick like coffee, which is filled with tiny sharp nails that will try to burrow deeper and deeper into you.
The first time since I had suffered from the Ghoul, I wanted to open my mouth and scream as loudly as I can. The pain is blinding; I wanted to do nothing more than scream right now.
Still, I diverted my mind using all my willpower and focused on the energy that was flowing inside me. Ive already wasted a few precious seconds; I don't want to waste any more of that time.
I focused on the thick energy flowing inside me and began to divert a small part of it toward the veins of Supreme Combat Exercise.
I did not try for much; I only tried for 5%, which was even hard to control than I had imagined. I had thought of being thick and slower than it usually is, I would be easily able to control the energy and even planned to increase its amount, but I was so wrong.
It may be thick and slow, but it holds more power than a flood; I had to use every bit of my will power and them some more before I was able to move it toward my veins.
It is extremely hard and made me remember the first time I had tried diverting it to create the seals of Supreme Combat Exercise
