Chapter 1566 - Probe
I woke up at dawn by the alarm I had set up last night before sleeping; I had slept through the night without much problem, there was a tiny disturbance, but it was an expected one.
I had sensed the Tyrants soul sense investigating me, and this soul sense had been quite probing.
The Tyrant did not find anything odd about me after more than ten minutes of probing; I had been quite prepared for it. My teacher trained me well against such probes, and I can fool them without using any artifacts.
For three months, I had been constantly probed by faint soul sense; it is so faint that one could sense, h.e.l.l, even powerful Emperors would not be able to sense it.
My teacher had the greatest energy control Ive seen on anyone, and the same goes for her soul control. When she first began to probe me, I could not find her soul sense; I have tried many things, including being awake for a long time.
It took me a while to understand that it is Tyrant Powerhouse I am dealing with, and there is the reason why they are called the Tyrants.
So, seeing there is no way I could sense her soul sense the conventional way, I decided to create a formation, and due to unique Inheritance Runes, enormous soul power, and Rule Bending power, the formation worked.
There was quite a shock on the teacher's face when I first caught her soul sense; I had never seen her such shocked before. When I asked, she told me that even some Tyrants would not be able to sense probing as I did, which I clearly think some exaggeration.
The formation I had created to sense her soul sense turned very useful. Though it still can't detect her soul sense when she gets serious, it is more than enough to detect the soul sense of other Tyrants, which is ostentatiously crude.
I did not stay on the bed for more than a minute before I got up and walked to the bathroom.
The small brownstone I am staying is quite good; even if it is a place where the prisoners gather, the prisoners are Emperor Level powerhouses, a true powerhouse, even the most mediocre residence is great by King's standard.
After freshening up and showered, I opened the meal box that was delivered earlier and ate it.
Compare to what I usually eat, it is bland, but I have no choice but to eat it. I can't take the risk of showing my excellent culinary skills or eating from prepackaged food I had prepared for myself, at least not in the city.
With everything prepared, I walked out of the brownstone and flew towards the city gates.
Yesterday, I had received the mission; it is not rare, every criminal who entered the Devil's Gate receive; it is more like a task than a mission.
Every weak, one has to submit head of one Emperor Grade Grimm Monster, which I have to say is quite a task. This task alone would have killed quite a lot of people.
It may seem an easy task, but it is not; it exceedingly hard mission. For normal Emperors, even those with above-average strength, it is a gargantuan task.
In the Emperor Stage, the Inheritances began to reveal true power. It means one has a lot of trump cards and fighting experience that, if the battle gets fatal, one could simply run away.
Even an above-average Emperor will have a problem catching up below-average Emperor. When it comes to death, one can burst with incredible strength.
Fighting in compet.i.tions is a lot different than fighting in reality. In the compet.i.tion, one would lose just a battle, but in a real battle, one would lose one's life.
Still, I will hunt an Emperor today; it had been a long while since I had fought real life and death battle, and I wanted to fight one, not to forget, I had collect Roses.
The Roses made of Grimm Monsters essence are turning out to be very helpful, the Totem Artifacts made by them are not only very powerful, but they are also giving a person certain immunity toward the Grimm energy.
The teacher and other professors involved in that project kept a close eye on the people who had used the roses crafting the Totem Artifacts; the Grimm Monster essence is behaving like any other material used in crafting of Totem Artifact.
Still, one could never be too careful when it involved the essence of the Grimm Monsters.
Despite the risk, the benefits of the essence roses are too great, not only in crafting the totem artifact on the other things but also in alchemy and research on Grimm Inheritance and Grimm Monsters themselves.
Teacher had told me to harvest as much as Roses I could, and I planned to do that. These Roses are one of the ways in which I could finance the resources I need.
My runes' appet.i.te has grown beyond what I had expected, and I make the further breakthrough, and my runes get stronger, their appet.i.te will also become bigger.
I do not want to strain the Academy too much with my demands even though I could, and Academy will heartily give them to me.
As a successor, I came to know many things, and even though, Academy has a humongous amount of resources, but its expenses are also are great, especially now when so many good seeds are entering the Academy.
I could not hog its resources, no matter how much I deserve it. I will collect as many resources as I could.
Soon, I reached the gate, where I had to spend few minutes doing some formalities, listening to some instructions about the danger of outside before I was allowed to go out.
As I walked out of the gate, I felt the change. The suppression had increased immediately; it is far greater than what I had felt in the airs.h.i.+p and the city.
