It has been about three months since I've returned from the Minerva Realm and got to know about The Grimm Battlefield.
The three months pa.s.sed like a blur and tomorrow will be the day, I will leave for the Grimm Battlefield through Airs.h.i.+p.
Of these three months, I've spent it half in my hometown while another half in the westblood, the return from my hometown was quite tearful this time.
A month ago, I told my parents that I am going to leave for the half-year to a year for special training, my mother was quite against it at first but she relegated seeing adamant I am about leaving.
I have sold half of the stuff I got from the Minerva realm and the price I got in return is better than I expected.
My only regret that even after working hard nearly every day for the past two and a half months, I only able to perform 15 th pose of Body Cleansing Technique.
This Body Cleansing Technique is d.a.m.n hard, I thought these two and a half months would be more than enough for me to perform 17 th even 18 th pose but I was only able to advance to the 15 th pose only.
It is very difficult to perform Body Cleansing Technique, not only needs a lot of energy to perform, but it also increases strain over my body many times with every move.
Three weeks ago, right after I performed the 15 th pose of Body Cleansing Technique, I fell unconscious. When I woke up, an hour had already pa.s.sed.
That's how much pressure this technique puts the body under, though the pressure is great to be able to preserve under such condition, he will get taste benefits beyond his imagination.
With the regular practice of this technique for three months, I have tasted such benefits.
Just two days ago in Miasta forest, I killed a Master stage monster with just strength of my body.
While fighting it, I did not use any skills or Rule power or any Totem artifact just used pure strength of my body.
Through it took me more than three hours to kill that monster and by the time I am finished, I was injured quite a lot but still, it felt quite good to kill the monster with just physical strength.
It is quite a big accomplishment and many people would be shocked if they knew about it as bodies of monsters quite strong and defeat them we humans always relied on the Skill's, Artifacts and other things, we never much relied on just strength of our bodies to defeat them.
I couldn't help but sigh but when I look at the glittering view of Westblood city through my balcony.
This is my last night in the westblood city before leaving for Grimm Battlefield tomorrow morning.
I had already made preparation, now I just have to tomorrow and wand go toward the Airbase.
After staying an hour more on the balcony, I finally went to sleep. When I woke the next day, it's already early morning.
To my surprise, Ashlyn had already woken up before me and now looking outside the window.
After finis.h.i.+ng my morning activities and taking a shower, I started cooking a meal for us.
The finished making breakfast in less than an hour and we both started eating.
After breakfast, I look at my holowatch only to see I still have an hour before the hovercar came that I had booked yesterday.
To pa.s.s the time, I did nothing but sat on the chair thinking about nothing and everything.
An hour pa.s.sed by as I was busy with my thoughts, if not for feeling the vibration of my holowatch, I would have stayed on my spot for an hour more.
When I get out of my apartment building, I found that hovercar is waiting for me as I've expected.
As I boarded it, it swiftly increased its speed and flew toward the Airbase.
By the speed of this hovercar, it shouldn't take more than fifteen minutes to ch the Airbase, I thought.
I and Ashlyn watched the scenery pa.s.sed by us and before I know it, I saw a big Airbase in front of me.
Getting out of Hovercar, I walk into the Airs.h.i.+p Port. It is more crowded than I expected but this crowd is nothing compared to the train station.
Airs.h.i.+ps in the republic are only used to trap between countries if you have to travel within a republic then you will have to use the train.
There are some exceptions to this rule but to get an exception, one has to be pretty powerful.
There are many airs.h.i.+ps could be seen coming and going through the Airbase, some are small while others are big, some are very pretty while others are just average but no matter the size or look whenever one looks at the airs.h.i.+p, they will feel like they are looking at the powerful beast.
Flying in the sky is not easy this especially outside the safety of the cities, one can never know when one will get attacked by a powerful monster in the sky.
That is why to ensure the safety of its pa.s.sengers, every airs.h.i.+p is pretty strong in its offense and defense.
Every skin of airs.h.i.+p is used at least Major level monster's skin, not only that every airs.h.i.+p, smallest that it maybe is less with the cannon that could kill a Major level monster in a single shot.
When I reached the terminal 6 and saw the airs.h.i.+p I have to board, I couldn't help but gasp.
What I saw is a gigantic black airs.h.i.+p, it's size is big enough to house a small town. After taking one look at this s.h.i.+p, people will think only one word, A Beast.
This wars.h.i.+p is akin to a dangerous beast, once provoked it will only stop when it fully annihilated the enemy.
This is a giant Airs.h.i.+p which had a black th.o.r.n.y mesh of unknown material covering its body, just looking at it I could feel that even the smallest thorn had the power to pierce my body, even if I used the power of Rules in my defense.
Not only that, there are more than 100 s.h.i.+ny cannons placed all over the airs.h.i.+p, I can't imagine how powerful those cannons are but I am sure no monster in republic boundary is capable of taking a blow from it.
People could be seen entering that giant Airs.h.i.+p now and then, most of them look to be in their mid and late twenties, their bodies excluding the power that made me feel threatened but now and then I could see people around my age are also entering in the airs.h.i.+p.
They are mostly Master stage and Lieutenant stage but I saw some Corporal stage and Sergeant stage like Myself.
Taking a deep break, I also walked toward giant black airs.h.i.+p, knowing too well that after I boarded the s.h.i.+p, my life is going to change forever and this change wasn't going to be any less spectacular that Awakening ground.
I scanned my holowatch into it and the door opened automatically and I took a step inside.
A curse of astonishment came out of my mouth when I saw the interior inside, earlier when I saw the muscle outside of this beast of a s.h.i.+p, I regretted paying five million credit for a premium ticket but now I look at its interior, I think it will be worth it.
