Chapter 1699 - Peak Emperor
The three sips of vine slid down my throat, and when they reached my stomach, they transformed into a mountainous amount of energy.
The energy was so much that it had spread around my body and started to burn it, my skin turned bright red like burning coal, and pus begins to boil up before drying up within seconds.
It is a good thing honeycomb had quickly controlled the energy a few seconds more, and I would have been incinerated by it, and that would have been the end of me, the end of my dreams and aspiration.
As this wonderful wine turned into energy, it brought intoxication, and this intoxication was so heavy that I lost sense of reality.
Strange patterns begin to float in front of me, holding the key to the principles of the world. I felt like I just need to decipher them, and I would become invincible; no one in the world will able to beat me.
At some point, I felt something pressing against my back, but that thought had disappeared as soon as it appeared like many other thoughts that are floating in my mind.
I don't know what is happening with Honeycomb and nor I want to find out. However, this intoxicated state feels wonderful; there is nothing to worry about and no aspirations to complete.
The bliss is everywhere, and whenever I looked, I found it. It is no wonder some people love wine and intoxicating drugs so much; the way it separates one from reality is amazing; it brings one to a completely different place.
I don't know how much time I had spent in the intoxicated state when I found my begin clearing up rapidly.
The first thing I noticed was that I am lying instead of sitting up; I did know when I laid down. I couldn't help but heave a sigh of relief when I noticed that the bottle of vines is still standing; even in my intoxicated stage, I had the sense to not let fall down and spill.
The energy it had created was an extremly powerful herbal being created through thousands of years of fermentation; it gave Honeycomb what it needs; not only that, it had also helped in stabilizing my body and soul.
If it not, I could have definitely turned into the puddle by the Honeycomb. Speaking of it, I quickly looked inside me, which I should have done the moment I had gained the sense of reality.
Inside me, I saw Honeycomb perfectly fit between my body and soul; millions of Hexagonal cells remained empty to be filled. The filling of each cell would increse my power to some degree, and there are five million cells.
With such huge s.p.a.ce, I could consume ten times or more bloodlines than I should have been capable of consuming; it will increse my strength by so much that I will strength to face those b.a.s.t.a.r.d head-ons.
I soon shook my head of those thoughts; I could think about those things later, there are many important for me to do now.
The Honeycomb had done extensive damage to my body and soul; though this damage is not serious with long repercussions, it is still extensive, and I have to heal it as soon as possible.
I had just thought that when my runes buzzed and released the flood of strengthening energy which they have been holding back on releasing since the Honeycomb merging with me.
As the flooding energy spread, it picked up a substantial amount of wine energy which is still in my body before it started to fill the Honeycomb rapidly.
Each second, hundreds of hexagonal cells of Honeycomb got filled with strengthening energy and merged with my body and soul. As it happens, I could feel my strength rising rapidly.
Not only this strengthening energy is filling Honeycombs, but it is also healing me while giving me intoxicating effects as wine energy merged with me, but as my strength gets higher and higher, I was able to fight this intoxicating feeling better.
Time pa.s.sed by as more and more strengthening energy filled the honeycombs before they merged with my body and soul.
Three minutes later, all the strengthening energy disappeared from my body, making me Peak Emperor formally.
The strengthening energy had filled about twenty-five thousand honeycombs; there are still about five million honeycombs to be filled.
I am already feeling very strong; I don't know how strong I would be when I filled the whole five million honeycombs.
Seeing how flawlessly Honeycomb is working, I know it worth the risk. So from now on, I would reap the benefits of it.
Suddenly, my happy mood evaporated, and the color drained from my face when I noticed something very deep inside me.
It is starkly different from yesterday; I regularly check the condition Curse and runic formation protecting me against it.
Yesterday, their condition was very good, though under strain, but they were fine; there were no cracks on the runes, and now it is on every rune.
The formations would have turned to dust under the attack of Curse if not for the mysterious s.h.i.+eld.
The s.h.i.+eld which used to be deep inside the Sea Of Curse is now above it, spreading its milky white energy into runes, protecting them from collapsing entirely.
The Curse had attacked me when I am at my weakest, and if not for a s.h.i.+eld that is protecting me, I would have been swallowed by it.
I could not keep this viper inside me; I will have to find ways to destroy it. Before, it was not an option because it burrowed too deep inside me, and doing anything to it would have harmed me, but now I have a chance.
I was inspecting the damage the Curse had done when suddenly Ashlyn had chirped, and her chirped was fast and sharp, filled with warning.
