"You are not too bad yourself!" Rachel said with a half-smile before she took back her sword at a lightning-fast speed before attacking at me with ever faster speed than before.
I am completely shocked seeing this and caught quite an off guard. Honestly, till now, I have been too much depending on the Killing Rule, I have barely come across anyone which could ward off the senses given to me by killing Rule. I have sort of developed a complete dependence over it.
Even when two friendly people fight, there is killing intent or battle l.u.s.t which effuses with a tiny bit of killing intent, with me concentrating me, I could easily tell when my opponent is going to attack.
But with Rachel, it is completely different, forget the Killing intent, I was not even able to sense her battle power and power stage. I could say that I am fighting handicapped against her.
From now on, I will have to lessen my need for Killing Rule or I will surely pay a heavy price if I come across an enemy which could ward off senses of killing Rule.
Seeing her sword quickly approaching me, I activated the mini blast with the full power. I have no choice but to use the full power of my swirling Armor if I do not use it, then that sword is going to approach my neck.
Our weapons clashed again with more power than the last time, still, despite cash being powerful, both of us had no change, our bodies not even able to shake even slightly.
CLANG CLANG CLANG…
Loud changing sound continues to ring out across the Barren land as our weapons keep clas.h.i.+ng, with each of our moves being stronger than the other, but no matter how much power we have increased, it seems not to affect others.
Hundreds of moves would clash in a minute, with each attack having the motive to reach the weak point of others, but it seemed like our strength was so similar that we seemed to neutralize each other's attacks.
To be honest, I am quite enjoying it and her not so much, Rachels's face scrunched up in anger as any of her attacks are not getting past my defense. The Greatsword is not only good for the powerful attacks, but they are also great for defense; their heaviness and big size make them perfect to use them as defensive artifacts.
As time pa.s.sed, I could feel myself improving at the breakneck speed, the clumsiness and faulty moments with the greatswords are lessening. I am not the only one who is improving, Rachel also seemed to be improving at very speed, and her speed is no less than me.
It looks like her inheritance has also increased her learning and comprehension ability.
The intense clash went on for more than an hour, with both of us not wanting to back down. We had been clas.h.i.+ng at breakneck speed when suddenly, the speed of her sword increased three times as it came at me with indiscernible speed.
Unlike the last time when I was caught offhanded, this time I was completely focused as seeing the speed of her sword increased by three times, I did not waste time and added occult energy into my Swirling Armor.
Till now, I had not used the Occult energy in my Swirling Armor as it was giving me enough power to fight back, but seeing her sudden increase in power, I had to use the Occult Energy, which I hadn't used before.
Another loud clang rang out, and this was the loudest till now, and it had performed a miracle; it had made Rachel finally take a step back. Though she is not injured, making her take a step back is more than enough for now.
Seeing her taking a step back, I did not waste this precious opportunity and attacked again. This time I have used all the power I had, I wanted to make use of this chance to give her some bas.h.i.+ng to get a psychological advantage over her.
CLANG CLANG STEP CLANG STEP…
One after another heavy attack rained down on her, and all she could do was defend through the greeted teeth, an excitement that couldn't help but build in my heart seeing such a result.
As I continued attacking her, I found my moves becoming more and more smooth at a very fast rate; the Clock Swords Styles moves became so easy and instinctive that I did not have to think while attacking.
I am aware that my comprehension of Clock Sword Style using Greatsword is increasing at the visible pace, but it is not an epiphany but a Realization. It is different from the Epiphany but producing the same result.
The Realisation could be said to be similar to copy-paste, the compression of Clock Sword Style I have using my regular sword is now converting into the comprehension of Greatsword.
So with the realization, I am gaining similar comprehension of Clock Sword Style in Greatsword, which is increasing my strength at a faster speed.
I did not think I would be so lucky to come under the realization; to make progress I am making now in Clock Sword Style, I would have needed constant practice for one month before I could convert my comprehension, but now I am doing that in a minute. It, Rachel, could not match me as it was her first time using the Sword Style she is using.
Even if she had detailed instruction, one day is not enough to learn all that, she had to work on it for least a few weeks.
CLANG CLANG STEP STEP…
Attack after attack is raining down on Rachel, and all she could do is defend through the Gritted teeth as she continues to take steps back.
Fighting her, I did not show any mercy; I had used all the power I had; every single drop it. I wanted her to defeat her, but she likes some ferocious tigress (Kity) despite being cornered is unwilling to give and continues to defend with all her power.
"Rachel, admit defeat! You have already reached your limit!" I said as I continued my attacks on her, wanting her to admit the defeat, so I could make the request from her, which I wanted for so much time.
"Stop dreaming Micheal, you have just got the slight upper hand, injured me a little first then you can talk to me about admitting defeat!" she said with the snort.
She is right; in the fight, I have been only suppressing her; like me, she also seemed to have some method to crush the forces that came to her; otherwise, she would not have been uninjured for this while.
I am trying my best to injure her, but I am not able to and have no way to do this unless I use that, but the time of using that has not come yet.
Time pa.s.sed by another two hours pa.s.sed, and I am still suppressing Rachel in the fight, which has angered her quite much as she is fighting me like a frenzied kitty.
Suddenly Rachel took a long jump back and created a hundred-meter distance between us instantly, till now we have been fighting, she has never done that, she had fought against me head-on.
"Don't you think the time has come to decide final victor Micheal?" Rachel asked suddenly, which stopped me on my tracks.
"The playtime is over; it is now time to fight with dangerous hardcore attacks, the Methods." She said before I could reply.
