Chapter 1595 - Four Days
"Partic.i.p.ant YU897 Will Rest For Ninety Seven Hours Before Escorted To The Second Challenge Along With Rest Of Partic.i.p.ants!"
"If Partic.i.p.ant Do Not Want To Partic.i.p.ate Into The Further Challenges, Say 'Leave' And Partic.i.p.ant Will Be Teleported Out," The Mechanical voice said as I was observing the small potion bottle in my hand.
As it said it, the color of the white hall dimmed, and it became creamy, less harsh to the eyes, but other than that, there was no change; the room is still blank as before.
I am not surprised to hear that I will have to spend four days here; some of the Treasure Palaces that had appeared before had similar rules like this.
I looked around the hall for a few minutes and even attacked the walls couple of times with all my strength, but nothing happened to the walls. My attacks were a touch of feather to the walls; not a single mark appeared on them.
Sighing, I took out my s.p.a.ce abode and went inside it, and directly went to the training room.
I wanted to shower first but seeing this potion had the small cleansing ability, showering before drinking the potion would not be wise as I will have to shower again.
As I reached the practice room, I took out most of my clothes and sat crossed-legged before open the cap of the small potion bottle.
I looked at the potion for a moment before I took it to my lips and gulped down the whole potion in a single swing, and I have to say this potion is nasty. It tasted like vomit; the maker should have worked on its taste a little, not made it taste like vomit.
I was reeling from the taste of the potion when a new sensation filled my mind. The new sensation is not pain; it is something worse.
I felt like there are thousands of ants crawling on my body and mind; these ants are not biting me; they are just crawling around with their light steps, and every second, the number of ants would increase, making this feeling even denser.
It is a very uncomfortable feeling that is making me want to tear my skin apart to give these ants a way out.
I controlled this impulse and stayed still; the feeling might be worst than pain, but I could do nothing about it except for bearing it silently as the potion is working.
I could feel that my strength is rising; my body and soul are getting strengthened rapidly with the speed that is surprising even to me. I had heard about these strengthening potions and how good they are but did not expect them to be this good.
This is the lower-level potion that the Treasure Palace offers. As I complete more challenges, the levels of rewards will also increase, the reward of the second challenge will be better than of the first challenge.
As time pa.s.sed, the feeling became more and more intense, and with it, strengthening also became faster. The strength of my body and soul is rising rapidly, especially my soul, which is strengthening at the double speed of my body.
Other than the strengthening, there is some cleansing also going around my body. The impurities are coming out of my body at a rapid pace, and with it, they are bringing out a thick stench.
There are very few impurities present in my body; I like to keep my body clean as possible, but; they are present in everything; they gather no matter what I do.
I feel like I am stuck in between a rock and a hard place; on one side, there is that intense uncomfortable sensation of the thousands of ants crawling around my body, and on the other side, there is this horrible stench of the impurities coming out.
I bore the horrible feeling and smell and stayed still, without moving even an inch. It is harder than it seemed, seeing there is are thousands of ants crawling on my body.
I made staying still a challenge to my control over myself, and when I consider something a challenge, I give my all to that challenge, no matter how painful and uncomfortable it is.
The feeling had lasted for little more than two minutes before it was over, and when it did, I found my strength grown further; seeing how strong my soul and body have become, a smile couldn't help but appeared on my face.
The strength of my body and soul had reached high enough that now my Inheritance Runes could consume another Bloodline. Consumption of another Bloodline means more strength, and when I level up to the Emperor Stage, that strength will multiply many times more.
After checking my body and soul thoroughly, I got up from my place and walked into the shower to clean up the impurities that had piled into my body.
I spent more than half an hour in the shower before I got out, wore new clothes and walked into the kitchen, and started to cook. An hour later, a simple dinner was in front of me, which I ate alone.
After finis.h.i.+ng dinner, I did not sleep even though I wanted to; instead, I went to my Inheritance s.p.a.ce and began working on my Inheritance. I am very close to finis.h.i.+ng the big upgrade; in few days, it will be ready, and I will be able to level up into the Emperor Stage whenever I want.
I worked on my Inheritance for few hours before I opened my eyes, rested for a half-hour, and went inside the Tome. There I again spent a few hours learning and honing my cooking skills before getting out.
A minute after getting out of the Tome, I was in a deep sleep.
Days pa.s.sed by, and before I know it, four days had pa.s.sed, and now less than ten minutes are remaining till the second challenge began.
