Chapter 1656 - Something Fishy I
One hour and twelve minutes, that's how long it took my runes to transfer all this energy; I had thought it would take time but never had it would take such long, but it is a good thing; it did.
Always there would be a flood of strengthening energy which would come strengthen and gone just as quickly, but this time, it came in a trickled speed, and that trickle had spread through my whole body.
This time, I get to see clearly how the strengthening energy merges with my body. The process is beautiful, and I had learned so much from it and not to mention the increase in strength I had received from the strengthening.
Even though 99% of my strength is suppressed, I could still feel that increment in the 1%, and it is great. The Bloodline was really powerful, so powerful that it had filled half of my limit alone.
No bloodline had ever done that, and seeing how much s.p.a.ce had built up inside me for consumption in Mid Emperor Stage, the Bloodline had to be really powerful to fill even a quarter of s.p.a.ce, but it had filled half of it alone.
One can imagine its power with it.
If I had fought with Foxman outside in the middle range or outer range of the forest, I would have had lot more difficulties defeating it.
As here, the soul sense is nearly blocked; one could hardly bring it out of its body. If the Grimm Monster had its soul sense, it would have noticed the strings lot sooner and might have even jumped out before the strings could reach any high in its body.
With the consumption of Earthsun Bloodline, my pseudo Bloodline has also gotten stronger. I could feel it becoming stronger, which is a great thing for me as it will help me resist the suppression further, and I might even be able to reach the Sunlight Dome.
The thought couldn't help but put a smile on my face; it would be really wonderful if I could do that.
With the great optimist in my heart, I marched forward. On the way, I had picked up an apple from a wild orchard and begin to eat them. These apples are really delicious, very juicy, filled with thick sunlight energy, which spread through my whole body, strengthening it and cleansing it.
Time pa.s.sed by, and another two hours pa.s.sed by, and in these two hours, the suppression had increased further as I venture deeper.
Another hour had pa.s.sed, and tenseness begins to appear on it, finally. Though it is very small, it is noticeable if one looks carefully.
With tenseness appearing on the diamond energy, my steps have now became counted. Though I would still be able to walk for hours till it reaches the limit, the meaning of tenseness is clear that it had begun to reach its limit.
It is quite disappointing; I had hoped it would be able to take me to the Sunlit dome, but it looked like it would not be a case.
There is nothing I could do about it; I had known that reaching Sunlit Dome would not be easy; if it had been an easy thing, then it would not be a great challenge that barely or not Emperor had able to reach this stage.
I am a powerful Emperor without doubt, and I said with a dare that even if there may be Emperors powerful than me, no Emperor possessed the power to kill me with own strength.
Only Tyrants have the strength to kill me, but of course, I will not go challenging them, at least not before I reached the Sunlit dome and see its mysteries.
A little more than an hour pa.s.sed when suddenly Ashlyn's voice chirped in my mind, and the view in front of me had changed.
Soon, a wide bird vision of Ashlyn's eyes appeared in front of me, and the first thing I saw was sunlight. The dense golden sunlight was bright but not harsh; it is so dense that one might feel that they could collect in a bottle and liquify it.
I saw the reason a second later, and my whole body shook; what I saw is something I had never expected to see in a place like this.
I saw three Grimm Monsters and one human with dark rope covering its whole body covering something, and in front of them, it is a huge device that looked like some sort of Engine and is densely covered in the Grimm Runes.
Due to winning the champions.h.i.+p, my access is greater; from the pyramid, I got to know many things and the teacher also told me many confidential things that only Tyrants should know, but of all the things I had learned, there is no mention of the Engine thing I am seeing.
I may not have any idea what that thing is, but I know it must be something very important for four Tyrants to come together—especially the human Tyrant who is hiding behind its huge cloak.
It is very clear that human Tyrant is a traitor; if it had been some behind curtain diplomacy or trade, there would not be such discrepancy; not only would their numbers be equal, but sides should have been hiding their ident.i.ty, and here Grimm Monsters openly showing their faces.
Though to us, they all looked the same, but like us humans, each Grimm Monster is different.
From what the teacher had told me, behind curtain diplomacy is done by very strict rules which have been developed in thousands of years. So, this is definitely something else, something that is detrimental to the human race.
