Its just had been a few minuits since we have entered the Sardine Hills and we came saw the silhouette of the Grimm monsters, seeing it all half of rookies behind me stopped on their tracks and let out shouts of surprised.
This must be their first time seeing the Grimm monsters, not all people were daring like me and twins who would go to the hunting ground even before joining the guild.
Seeing the Grimm monsters I did not stop and walked as if I did not see them, these Grimm monsters were not even a One Star Elite, a simple slap from me could send them to the underworld.
"Oh, look a treat!" said the Grimm monster as they spotted our team, hearing a Grimm monsters voice the rookies behind me started to take out their weapons, two people even summoned their totem artifacts.
I took a side look at them before three fingernail size fireb.a.l.l.s formed on my tips of fingernails, and with the slight motion of my hand, they flew toward the Grimm monsters.
The tiny fireb.a.l.l.s may seem slow, but they are extremly fast as they reached them before they were able to draw out their weapons.
Dhub Dhub Dhub!
Three fireb.a.l.l.s touched the three Grimm monster, and they stood still before red hue came over them, the red hue lasted for a second before it turned grey.
They became a statue of grey ash, and ash could be seen flying coming off them as the wind pa.s.ses.
Repeated gasps could be seen from the rookies as they saw three Grimm monsters turning alive to the statues of ash.
To create the fireball earlier, I have taken the inspiration from Ashlyn's tiny fireb.a.l.l.s, their fireb.a.l.l.s will seep inside the body and burn it from inside. The fire that I used is made only my fire ability, I did not use any Rule power in it as I won't have to.
These Grimm monsters were too weak for me to use my Rule power to kill them, my fire ability is more than enough to deal with them.
"They have really turned into as.h.!.+" said Soft voice, this voice woke up all the rookies out of their stupor only to see their fellow team member walked near the Grimm monster and now she is poking them with her sword.
No one expected the shy girl to be this daring; while they were in a stupor, she had already walked near the monster bodies and started poking them.
"It is really is."
Said others as they reached near the statues and started posting them with their weapons and hands, that in a few seconds, the whole bodies of Grimm monster collapsed into the ground, becoming a pile of ash.
"Let's not waste time; you all still have monsters to fight," I said and started to walk forward, and they hastily followed behind me.
We started walking, and next in no time, we have come across a lone Grimm monster which had turned into statue ash like its kin earlier. We moved forward and came across more and more Grimm monsters, of which were killed by me.
Half an hour later, after entering the Sardine hills, I noticed that there are lot more Grimm monsters than usual; if I were to guess, then I might say there is at three times more Grimm monsters than the normal.
'Something may be really fishy with the Grimm monsters as she had said.' I thought. Its a good thing that I had warned my friends, especially Sophia, who were going to take her charges hunting ground, which is a little deeper.
I said in my mind as I sensed a team of Grimm monsters, there are five Grimm monsters in that team, and all of them are at the captain stage, they are perfect for these five to fight.
"There is a team of five Grimm monsters just ahead, give your all fighting them," I said, and before they could ask any question, I disappeared from their view as if I am teleported.
I've pulled this trick lot smoother than my former team leader did when my former team leader training us he was Three Star Elite. In contrast, I have the power of Eight Star Elite, so it took me little effort to pull off blink technique in front of the rookies who are not even the One Star Elite.
"Ashlyn kill any Grimm monster that attracted by the sound," I asked Ashlyn, who was sitting on my shoulder.
Ashlyn chirped twice and flew off my shoulder in the sky, with Ashlynn's interference these five will able to fight without any disturbance from the other Grimm monsters.
Hidden on the tree, I watch five of the coming across five Snakemen, snakemen said something, and before long, the fight started between the two groups.
As the first clash, it was very evident that rookies are in a very disadvantageous position; it was was their first time fighting the Grimm monsters, and they are totally unfamiliar with, so it is normal for them to be at the disadvantageous position.
As they got familiar with the fighting style of the Grimm monster, they will gain their advantage back would able to beat these Grimm monsters they are fighting.
Time pa.s.sed and the rookies started to get their advantage back but they are nothing close to winning the fight, the battle power both teams posses are similar, so even I could not tell who would win the fight.
The fight longs on, and rookies started to get advantageous and started to reined down injuries on the snakemen. Seeing that snakemen began to give their all, they started to use poison attack, and the leader even had the Occult Method, which its activated.
Once again the battle tilted in the favor of the Grimm monsters and they started to make the Rookies bloodied but the rookies kept fighting without backing down.
"Interesting, that little packet has quite a will," I said as I saw something interesting in the fight.
Some more time pa.s.sed, and battle again tilted on the favor of humans and a few minuits after that, the first snakeman killed and soon after the second, third, and fourth had in succession.
Only the leader of the Grimm monsters remained who is also seemed to be in worse condition while fighting against Jen.
Sometime later, seeing all of its mates died and its condition also getting worse, it tried to run away only to be killed by Jen's power move.
"Well done!" I said as I suddenly appeared in front of them, of the five of them three seemed fine with little serious injuries which can be healed by the potions while two of them were quite worse.
One is. .h.i.t by the core poison of the snakemen, while others had Occult energy ravaging her body.
I walked toward the Jen crouch beside her, her condition is quite bad as the occult energy is ravaging every part of her body.
"Whenever you fight the Grimm monster that has an Occult method, create a barrier of rule power inside you so that you can keep the Occult energy at bay," I said to gen as I placed a hand on her shoulder.
A second after I take off my hands Jen's shoulder, she opened her eyes which were filled with complete disbelief. Removing occult energy that ravaging Jen wasn't much difficult, with my current control I just had to spread a small bit of Sunfire into her and withing a second all the Occult energy that had been ravaging had been vaporized.
"Th.. thank you, Instructor," Jen said, to that, I just smiled and went toward Tina, who is suffering her immense pain due to being directly a.s.saulted by the Core poison of the snakeman.
In the group, the one I am most impressed with is this Tina; her willpower is fantastic. Despite directly taking the Core poison of Snakeman, she continued fighting and first to kill the Grimm monster.
Even now despite being in the immense pain, she is only whimpering, not screaming in pain like any other average person.
Seeing her, I couldnt help but remeber the time I was. .h.i.t by the core poison and had to bear the pain through the sheer will power.
"Buy some strong anti-poison, normal anti-poison dont work on the Core Poisons of the Grimm monsters," I said as I vaporized poison off Tina.
After that, I gave them their High-Grade Runic Discs to harvest the mana crystals off the Grimm monsters.
After taking an hour rest, the hunt started again, and it continued till late afternoon before we came back to the Outpost. Hence, my first-day instructing rookies had pa.s.sed without any problem.
