Chapter 1697 - Honeycomb I
A minute pa.s.sed by, and the formation is created; the runes of formation are glittering power.
Though they are glittering with power, they have not reacted; they will react when all the runes are formed before the strengthening energy released from the body, that is the optimal time.
The runes are forming rapidly as they consume the sunlight and herbal essence. With the increasing speed that runes are forming, it won't be long before the whole runic structure is formed.
Ten minutes pa.s.sed, and the runic structure is seconds away from completion. The essences and sunlight had slowed down to a trickle as there are barely a few hundreds of runes remained to form.
Runes formed rapidly even if a trickle of energy was supplied to them, and nine seconds later, the complete runic structure had formed.
The moment that happened, the change I had been waiting for had started. The special formation I had created separated from the runic structure and came out.
As it came out, it buzzed and lighted up, and the next second changed into something different. The runic formation has disappeared, and in its place, a humanoid has appeared, which seemed like it is made of honeycomb.
The name of the special formation is 'Honeycomb.' Not only it had a look, but it will function the same way as it.
As the humanoid honeycomb appeared, it started growing rapidly. Tens of thousands of hexagonal cells begin to appear every second till the honeycomb reached my dimension.
As it gained my side, the runes begin to materialize over it, densely on every hexagonal cube. The s.h.i.+ny runes looked mesmerizing, and I could only enjoy them for a moment before an inhuman pain shot through me.
A torturous shriek tore through my mouth as soul tearing pain shot through me. It is soul tearing pain as really tearing my soul is getting torn apart.
The million hexagonal cells of the honeycomb are attacking my soul and taking a small part of it and forming a sh.e.l.l of honeycomb. The same thing happening in my body.
Millions of honeycomb cells are doing it simultaneously, forming a connection with my body and soul; it is an extremly painful process.
If my body and soul bear it, I will have a chance to become one of the most powerful Emperor in the history of the world, could even become the most powerful Emperor to walk on this world.
I have to be successful as failure would turn me into a puddle; failure means death in this process.
Earlier, I had only used 15% of the special resources I had brough; the rest, 85%, were kept for this process.
These resources are very special; I had spent hundreds of Emperor Grade Essense roses on buying them, and now, they are coming inside me, helping me to consolidate the honeycomb inside me.
A similar type of process happened during the Tyrant level up, but instead of being extremly painful, there is barely any pain during the process.
As time pa.s.sed, the pain became even more intense, and my body and soul begin showing some effects.
My skin begins to discolor, a sickly grey shade begins to appear on my skin, and pus begins to leak out in many places; at the same time, I found my thought process slowing down.
Seeing the side effects, I did not panic; I had known this will happen, and they will get worse. This formation will take me to jaws of death, and I will have to come back from there.
I am not unique to try something like it; the seven examples of Inheritances that I found in a book have a similar method like this, but the bodies and souls of these people are extremely strong, much stronger than mine; they could incorporate such formation without feeling slightest danger.
While I, on the other hand, barely qualify for such formation. Compared to them, I am extremly weak, and if I had tried any of the formations in the book, I would have turned into a puddle within a second.
This formation is my creation, it works the same as those formations, but it is created through a completely different process. It is created by me, tailored for myself; no other human with similar or greater strength would occupy the formation.
My skin has become completely grey with horrible pus covering part of me. My s.h.i.+ny dark hair has also turned grey and now started to fall down. My body is degrading at a higher speed than I had antic.i.p.ated, and if this going on, then it will be very hard for me to survive.
The side effect on the soul is even worse; I could feel the fain tears forming on my soul. If any part of my soul broke even a little, then I will suffer irreversible damage that no treasure will heal.
I was busily examing my condition with the limited thought power I had when I felt a huge electric shock and immediately open my eyes.
I cursed loudly, seeing the scene in front of me. The shock was pre-programmed; it will notify me when a state of resources really critically low; when I designed it, I did not see think I would get shocked as I had more resources than I need and I was sure when I finished with the process, there would be huge leftovers.
Obviously, I had been very wrong; the process is consuming lot more resources than I had calculated, and now less than 10% of it remained, and they are depleting at rapidly.
