Step Step Step… Puh
As our swords clashed, it was nearly flung away if not for it stabilizing itself on time before taking steps back forcefully, which cast a backlash as it puked the blood.
I did not let this opportunity go wasted and attacked by activating a mini blast on my hands and feet. Normally those who use Greatsword prepare stability and defense rather than speed, but I did not; I knew that it is the speed that suits me the best, and it is better that I continue with my previous path.
And it's not like I have any problem going that route; even with Greatsword, I can maintain my speed which is slightly slower than me using the light sword.
With me having a mini blast, I won't have to worry about the speed, with a single mini blast, I could increase the power and speed of my attacks, and that is the reason why that mambaman did not dodge my attack earlier and choose to defend despite being an agility and speed type fighter.
My attack was too fast for it to perform any of dodging maneuvers if it tried it would have been split into two right now.
Clang! Bang bang bang...
It had just taken a few steps back when it saw my attack coming, its eyes went wide seeing it made it hastily put up a defense. This time the attack was more powerful than before, and with it hastily put defense, it was not able to control its body properly and shot back like an arrow while puking the blood and cras.h.i.+ng across the several trees.
Clang Clang Clang...
Puh Puh Puh…
Like a bloodhound on its tail, I again activated mini blast and followed after with only one intention in my mind, and that is to kill, but it seemed like I had underestimated this Silver Tongue Mambamn too much.
Though it is getting hit by me over and over, it still somehow would always defend against my attack. Every time I would launch an attack at it, it would somehow produce a defense and survive.
Time pa.s.sed by as I continued bas.h.i.+ng the Silver Tongue Mambaman, and like always, it would defend just like how it had defended against me second ago.
Many things happened during half an hour, first and foremost, Ashlyn had killed that Idiot of the Monster, just a few minutes after my fight with mambaman started. Since then she is patrolling the area of my fight, killing any monster that came inside, she even killed another Eight Star Elite who had dared to go inside and found one Black Grade Origin Origin Water, which she had no interest in.
Not only did she have no interest in the Black Grade Origin Water, but she also did not have any interest in the White Grade Origin Water. Two days ago, when I offered it to her, she flat out declined it, saying she is not interested.
I am aware that she had not come out of me when I was in Cavern, so there is no chance of her eating the origin water. The only thing she seemed to have eaten is the body of that abomination in that strange world.
When that abomination changed my const.i.tution, I've felt Ashlyn stealing neutralizing energy from the Abomination, but I don't if it's true or not at that time; I was in too much of the pain and having too many hallucinations and that maybe one of them. So, I am sure in which way she had received the improvements.
Though there are many things I am not sure about, I am sure about one thing, and that is the improvement that Ashlyn had made, she at the least made the same level of improvement as me.
"b.a.s.t.a.r.d you have forced me,"
I suddenly saw the big spike of killing intent from the Grimm Monster, and next moment the Grimm Monster disappeared from my view. It was as if it had vanished, I couldn't sense it's killing intent, nor could I hear any sound.
It is like this monster had disappeared completely. Seeing that, I did not desperately search for it as I know it will make me fall into its hands. The thing I should do is concentrate my senses on the limited area around me, so I could defend against its attack as I know it is lingering somewhere.
It had used a very good stealth-type secret skill, which let it not hide its figure and sound but also its killing intent, it is a perfect method for a.s.sa.s.sins.
I stayed rooted on my spot, waiting for its attack to come, but one minute pa.s.sed, two minutes pa.s.sed, three minutes pa.s.sed, but its attack never came, but I did not lose my vigilance.
Finally, when seven minutes pa.s.sed, I sensed a very faint killing intent targeted at me. That moment I knew it was attacking me and I had less than a second to respond.
So, I Immediately activated the mini blasts on both of my hands and swung my sword toward the direction of where I had sensed the faint killing.
I could hear the sound of air as my heavy sword pierced through it before it crashed into the invisible sword. I was able to feel slight resistance when my sword crashed the sound and sound of bone fracture again and about to activate mini blast again to launch another attack when the invisible sword had disappeared.
Seeing that I did not attack and stayed on my spot and waited for its attack, which came again after three minutes with higher killing intent than before, this time also I wanted to follow up the attack, but it disappeared again.
In the next ten minutes, I was attacked by and three times, and all three-time, I had sent it flying with a powerful attack.
I have to say it is quite resilient; no matter how many times it blasted back, it would come back to attack me, and each time it would attack me at my weakest spot.
If not for me having the killing rule, which helps me pick up the slightest bit of killing intent, I would have died by its blade the first time it attacked me.
I couldn't help but wonder how many people it would have killed. With the natural ability of Silver Tongue Mambamen and this amazing stealth type of Mystic Method, it would have killed quite a lot of people, including Nine Star Silver Elite, I am quite sure of it, and that made me want to kill it even more as the longer it live, more humans it will able to kill.
The next attack would be its last, when the attack came, I will use my Mystic Method to finish it off.
I had just thought that when I felt an extreme threat to my life and without thinking, I swung my sword instinctively while thinking about how it was able to conceal its killing intent.
I defended against its attack but not fully as its blades had been able to nick my skin a little.
"f.u.c.k!" I cursed loudly, feeling the nick on my skin as I am very well aware that the blade of its is coated with the highly dangerous poison.
