I started to circulate the supreme combat exercise and as I had expected, the pain and resistance hit me like a roadblock.
The pain is still fine, the burning pain I am feeling in every cell of my body is still greater than the one I am feeling due to supreme combat exercise, so it does not affect that much.
The thing that affected me most is resistance I am getting while circulating the supreme combat exercise.
Before eight seals It was like climbing the steep mountain, the journey was hard but I was complete it with hard work but now It is still climbing that steep mountain, the difference is this time doing with 1000kg weight on your back.
It is very very hard to make a single circulation much less making twenty-four to create the seal but now I have no choice, even if the wight on by back is ten thousand kilograms, I will have to climb that mountain because falling means death which is not an option for me.
I started to scream loudly as kept circulating the mana on its route and finally able to finish the first circulation.
As I am starting on the second circulation, I felt resistance had increased by a fraction but that did not affect me as I keep circulating with all my strength.
I could feel that the sword the Damocles is inching closer to me every moment and I have to create seals to keep it from decapitating one.
The melting of the monster core is not going to stop and the more it melts, the more berserk energy I will have in my body, so before it could reach its limit, I had to create the seal of the supreme combat exercise.
One circulation after another, I kept circulating the mana in my body and finally, related to the sixth cycle and started on seventh.
I have to circulate even faster, I can feel the body reaching the limit, in three to four minutes, I will reach my limits and It will pop like a balloon.
With the sword of Damocles on my neck, I started to circulate even faster and faster, with every circulation resistance kept increasing little by little but my speed of circulation increased despite that.
The reason for that is the thought of revenge.
Earlier I did not think I have any chance of surviving, So, I did not waste my time entertaining the thoughts of revenge but now there is small chance me surviving and the thoughts of revenge started to surface on the mind.
I swore in my mind, that I will kill three of them with the same cruel method that they had used on me, I will make them die in the same cruel way they are making me die.
My Refinement Engine and Supreme Combat exercise, is only giving me a chance of survival and If one can state in percentage then it will be equal to 1%.
Some even say that 1% percent is an overestimation as to use up all the all berserk energy of the core, I will have to create tens of seals and everybody knows that the higher the number of seals one has, the more difficulty he will face creating more seal.
Suddenly I got a metallic taste in my mouth which I am way too familiar with, so, this started finally, I thought.
The bleeding is started, the blood I had just tasted probably either came from my nose or my eyes, with slight concentration I can feel that my ears are also bleeding.
I have to hurry, this bleeding stage had started that means I am very very near my limit. Feeling the touch of death G.o.ds scythe, I started to circulate even more furiously.
9th Circulation, 13th Circulation, 15th Circulation, 18th Circulation, 21st Circulation, 24th Circulation.
I finally reached the 24th circulation of supreme combat exercise and now most difficult part in any seal creation, breaking the layer, once the layer is broken the ninth seal is created.
I did not directly barge toward the layer as I know it will be useless, with experience of creating eight seals, I know the best way to break into the layer.
I started to build the momentum, I started to circulate mana and faster and faster till even I am barely able to control it and let its crash against layer.
The momentum crashed against layer, it did not do much as it's only able to create the single crack but instead of being disappointed, I turned happy and controlled momentum again to crash against the layer.
I controlled the momentum and let it crashed against the layer again, every time it clashed it to widen a crack before finally breaking through the layer.
I felt the ion force in my body as it started to suck all the mana I have in the central storage, I was little hoping that it will use the berserk energy to create the seals but nothing that sort happened.
Seeing mana in the central storage not going to last long, I took the control of Refinement Engine and started to suck berserk energy at full power.
The berserk energy kept getting sucked in the refinement engine as runes on it turn brighter and brighter as berserk energy kept getting converted into the normal mana then stored into the central storage.
From there central storage, I used my own mental energy to deliver mana to my temple where seal being created.
If I let it happen at natural speed, then I would turn in pieces of meat before even first seal is created.
Normally it takes more than five minutes to create the seal but now, there had been barely thirty seconds before the seal is finished creating.
The 9th seal of supreme combat exercise started to float in my temple s.p.a.ce with other eight seals but I did not feel the cooling energy which seals released after it created, all I felt is slight relieve from pain.
Seeing the seal is created, I again started to circulate my mana for the tenth seal for which I am feeling ten times more resistance than when I started to circulate for the nine seals.
I have to continue creating the seals even if the resistance is ten times more especially for the tenth seal.
My father had said that after I created the tenth seal something amazing will happen, he did not tell me what will happen, he just said that I will need a huge amount of mana, mana greater than which I required for creating whole ten seals.
That's what I have been counting on, the more mana I will need the better as less the berserk energy I will have to worry about.
The pain in my body started to increase as Mana core melted 2% in my body and the mana it took for seal to create is less than 10% of that 2%, that is very less that is why I am furiously circulating supreme combat exercise, only the change after ten will suck enough mana to give body some relief from the tortures of berserk energy.
As the more time pa.s.sed, the more berserk energy core spread through my body, to save myself from dying, I will have to keep creating more seals to the point, there will be no danger to my body from the core.
Not only seals will use the energy of the monster core, but they will also make my body strong enough to bear the pressure of berserk energy, so, that will give more time to create more seals.
The target seems impossible but as long as I keep holding on, I am confident that I can get myself out of this peril.
I keep getting closer and closer to the 24th circulation but I felt like my speed is still slower than the monster core melting in my stomach.
I can't do much about the melting of monster core and for circulation, I am already giving my all and I will be soon able to reach the 24th circulation.
I finally reached the twenty-fourth circulation and I did not waste any second to break the layer as I started to build momentum, this time the moment is greater than last as I didn't want any problem to occur.
My momentum broke through the layer and again started handling Refinement Engine personally, So, the seal could be created quickly.
Like last time, the seal finished its creation within half a Minute and like last time, I did not feel cool refres.h.i.+ng energy that seals release after its created, just slight decrease in pain which comes back to its previous intensity in few seconds.
I finally finished creating ten seals, if it were any other time, I would have celebrated by shouting loudly but now I have more things to worry about that the shouting.
I did not look at my seals as I am very much focused on converting berserk energy and filling central storage as my father had said, that a few moments later after the seal is created the change will be happening in the seals and when that happens I will need a s.h.i.+tload of mana.
I kept converting berserk energy to normal mana while keeping slight sense toward the seals but no change occurs in them, I even started suspects something happens or not.
The change started when I filled central storage for nearly three quarters, I felt huge suction in the central storage of my refining engine from my temple s.p.a.ce.
When I concentrated at my temple, I saw that the ten seals which were in a starrightine in my temple s.p.a.ce are now are in a circular fas.h.i.+on and they are spinning, their speed seems to get higher and higher by the moment.
Seeing the suction is increasing, I took my mental energy back to Refinininent Engine and about to start converting energy at full speed to meet the needs of suction, A familiar feeling arose from the Ashlyn and my connection.
I only felt this feeling once before a few hours ago, just for a moment but I could still remember how it felt.
This time this feeling came, it did not go away in a moment like last time but kept rising, its rise is very very minute but I can still feel it, it is rising and It will not go away this time.
I will have to preserve until this feeling reaches its peak, once it reaches its peak, it will become the spark that will burn down the wall that had been stopping me from leveling up.
This is the feeling of Breaking the Limit, I knew it intuitively and now the only thing I have to do is preserve and the breakthrough I had been waiting for the past one year to happen.
