Chapter 1612 - Pieces Of Puzzle I
I was watching everything in front of me when suddenly, I saw a lizardman is coming toward me; its speed is quite good, it would be a blur to even to the eyes of the powerful Emperor.
I did not even glance at the upcoming Lizardman; I just continued looking forward as if I had not noticed it; this seemed to put a bright smile on the Lizardman's face.
I let it come closer to me, and when it had entered the hundred meters range of me, a dark fiery dome spread from me, instantly shrowding hundred-meter area around me, including the Lizardman that is coming toward me.
Sup Sup Sup
The abrupt change appeared on the face of the Lizardman, and it stopped on its tracks as it landed on a small tile and about to prepare to jump back when it saw scary ribbons made of black fire coming toward it.
It acted immediately as it swung forward its staff and at the same covered itself in the defensive layer.
Puch Puch Puch
The nine ribbons I had sent toward it easily avoided its staff and tore through its defensive layer as it is paper before piercing through its body and beginning to envelop in the ribbons.
Ten seconds later, it was completely enveloped in fiery black ribbons like a mummy. As My ribbons completely enveloped it, I had immediately begun the harvesting process.
The Lizardman struggled and tried to scream, but not a single whisper could be heard outside of ribbons; the ribbons had bound it too tight that it could not even struggle freely; the only thing it could do is endure this mind-breaking pain as I harvest it.
Despite being powerful, this Lizardman did not have a Bloodline which is quite disappointing as my runes are quite hungry for it.
One and half a minute later, I called back my ribbons. Now, in the place of the Lizardman is beautiful Essense Rose, which Nero wants to devour so badly, but I did not give it to him.
Instead, I stored it delicate box and before putting it in my storage with the things of Lizardman.
After taking one last look, seeing there is nothing that would reveal my ident.i.ty, I called back the black fire dome and once again revealed myself to the public; as I did, I felt the eyes of a couple of people that include both humans and Grimm Monsters.
I had finished the Lizardman in less than two minutes, and I did that in a mysterious way.
The black fire dome I summoned blocked all the soul sense; there are many people who tried to breach it with their soul sense; some even tried to use the special soul methods to breach it, but all of them are are unsuccessful.
They saw Lizardman attacking me and my fiery dome swallowing it; for nearly two minutes, there was an utter silence before the black dome of fire disappears, and I appear in front of them without Lizardman that had been swallowed by the black dome.
After giving a smile to those who are watching my little performance, I jumped toward the tile that is a few hundred meters away from me.
As I jumped, I activated many of my ocular methods and looked at the tiles that I jumped over for the puzzle pieces, but unfortunately, I did not find one, which is not surprising as people have already gone over these tiles.
I landed on the small tile, the size of my hands, before jumping again toward a tile that is a few hundred meters away from the whole, looking at the tile below me with my ocular method.
Most of the restrictions previous challenge had disappeared, but some of them have remained, and one such restriction is 'Restricted Flying.' Flying is not allowed; one can jump or even glide but flying in a strict sense is forbidden.
If one tried, they would fall like a dead weight. If they are lucky, they will fall on the floating tile. If they are unlucky, they will fall directly, and I don't have the faintest idea what happened to them.
I jumped around the tile and moved toward the barren tiles, where very few people are, and soon, my eyes found a piece of the puzzle I was looking at, seeing it, I stopped my momentum and created energy wings as I glide toward that tile.
I landed beside the puzzle piece and picked it up in my hand. The piece is blue and feels like metal, and it is the size of my pinky finger.
Some design could be seen painted on it, but I don't know what it is, seeing it is incomplete.
The thing that made me curious about the small piece is its design; it is completely square in shape, there are indentured curves like puzzle pieces have, just plain edges, which is unlike a puzzle piece.
It is a little confusing, but I did not stress it; I am sure I will know the answer when I collect enough pieces.
I place the piece of the puzzle on my chest, and it stuck to it. The piece could not be stored in s.p.a.ce storage; h.e.l.l, it couldn't even be stored in normal pockets; it had to be stored where it is easily be seen.
With a piece of puzzle stored stuck to my chest, I took a jump again and began searching for another piece, and this time, my ocular range is far greater than before.
I am using the same ocular method I had designed in the first challenge when I had searched for the runes; it had made things quite easy for me and helped me get the first place.
Seven minutes later, I found another piece, the same as the previous but different incomplete design on it.
I held two pieces and tried to connect them like puzzle pieces; as I did, a surprising thing had happened. Both of the pieces have merged, became one piece of similar size as before, and this piece is also blue.
If not for completely different incomplete designs appearing on the merged piece, I would have thought one piece of the puzzle had simply disappeared as I tried to connect them.
