Chapter 1701 - Run II
Bang Bang Bang
I ran and ran, but no matter how much faster I ran, it is catching up to me. If its not for the trees and the ever-increasing suppression, it would have caught me already.
My speed is very fast; even with trees around me, I am running at speed I had never run before; h.e.l.l, I ran faster than I had flown before, but even at this speed, I barely able to contend against the suppressed Grimm Monster who is chasing me.
Still, there is some tiny hope of survival; I just need to get closer and close to the sunlit dome.
At every step, the supression grew, which lessen the power of Tyrant, and I just have to reach close to the Sunlit dome.
When enough of Crockmans power is suppressed, it won't be able to catch me, and I have to do all that within seven, sorry five minutes, as two minutes have already pa.s.sed since the run had begun.
Bang Bang Bang
The Crockman followed me like a tiger chasing the hare and in this chase. It did not bother to go around the tree. It had covered itself with energy and crashed through whatever obstacle that it might find in its way.
Be it tree or boulder, it crashed through them. Even will null supression, I could not do something like that; trees here would stop me dead on their tracks. One needs to have Tyrant's strength if they want to do something like it.
"I had enough human, I had given you many chances, and if you are not accepting the mercy I am offering, then you deserve death," It said and finally took out the box ax from its back.
Seeing that, my expressions couldn't help but change. In the past two and half a minute, it had just chased me and never attacked. It wanted to capture me alive, but now, it had no such intentions.
The Crockman shouted and spun midair with its ax; as it finished its spin, hundreds of energy arcs appeared around before they came at me.
"F.u.c.k!" I couldn't help but curse out loud and jumped to dodge the arc. It barely took a moment for the first arc to reach me and over hundreds of them just behind it.
My soul sense is covering all the arcs, and as they came at me, I jumped around. My Everwings, which are invisible, are being very helpful in dodging these attacks, a single flap of them enough to dodge any attack at very high speed.
It is quite regretful that I could only take a flap jump at an only shot distance. If the distance they cover had been bigger, I would have been able to run at a much faster speed.
One by one, I dodged all the arcs that Crockman attacked me with; while I am fine, the trees around me are razed, hundreds of them have been cut cleanly by the arcs of Grimm Monsters.
"Die, you b.a.s.t.a.r.d!" The Crockman shouted right after I finished dodging its arcs, and it immediately covered the hundred-meter distance between us and swing its darkly glowing bone ax at me.
A horror couldn't help but dawn on my face and flapped the invisible wings with as much energy I have to dodge the attack.
I felt a sharp pain in my lower back, and the blood begins to stream out of the deep cut.
The thing is, I had dodged the ax, what gave me this serious injury was the energies that were covering the ax. If the slightest part of the ax had touched me, I would have split into two.
"Hehe, you survive; let's see if you survive this!" It said and launched another attack; a dark aura covered its ax as it came at me. But, unlike before this time, I am better prepared and dodge the ax without receiving any injury.
The Crockman did not stop after the failure; instead, it continued to launch attack after attack, most of them, I had dodged, but some of them had hit my legs and back hard.
I am very fortunate that I have my runes s.u.c.k.e.d the Tyrant energy as it came at me. Though it had still done the damage, the damage is not crippling; I would be able to heal it easily.
"Human b.a.s.t.a.r.d, you have really irked me," "It's shameful that I had to use this move on puny Emperor, but I will bear this shame to kill your," It said suddenly, I could feel hurry in its voice as it had activated this move.
Feeling the aura, my whole body had gone white as I know that the coming attack would be very powerful and I would not be able to dodge it.
"Die, You Wretched Human" Its roared and attacked and that same time Ashlyn chirped, informing me of extremly good news.
A supression wave is coming, and it is fast and powerful due to being very close to the source; according to Ashlyn's calculations, the wave will be on us before its ax able to touch me.
I had never been so grateful for the supression wave as I had been now. Still, I used all my strength to flap my wings to dodge the attack; the Grimm b.a.s.t.a.r.d might be holding some power back and use it at the right time.
The ax comes close and closer to me at extremly fast speed, and when it had covered more than half a distance, I saw a wave of golden sunlight.
The silver aura covering me kept the sunlight at bay. It repelled as touched the silver glow, which is quite regretful as I would love to bath into such dense sunlight; the benefits of such thick sunlight are great.
While I am not getting any sunlight, Grimm b.a.s.t.a.r.d getting all, and it does not like it at all, not even a bit.
Just as its sunlight touched its ax, it had slowed down, and the dark energy that burning on the ax frizzed that it was barely able to maintain its existence.
The supression waves are powerful, enough that even all-powerful Tyrants have to be careful around them.
