"Finally!" I muttered silently as I crossed Mariana Hill's. As I finally crossed that hill range, I found that my heartbeat, which was speeding wildly for all this time, had finally calmed down a little.
We have got out of Mariana Hill's, but we aren't out of the danger; yes, the outskirts are also fairly dangerous with many Nine Star Elite roaming in it; it would be plain idiotic if I hand them over to someone in this dangerous area.
It would like taking them out of Tigers' mouths and throwing them at the Crocodiles. I would not make such mistakes. After a few minutes of flying, I increased my speed suddenly; they all got confused by it but did not ask any question. They followed behind me unhesitatingly
An hour pa.s.sed and I led them out of the dangerous area, and unlike last time, this time I did not have to search for the team of humans, just as I got out of the dangerous area, I found them entering my range.
It was quite a strong team, led by Eight Star Silver Elite they seemed to be going to the outskirts of Mariana Hills.
I said as I appeared in front of them like a ghost, the leader wanted to say something, but soon he heard the sound and found people were appearing behind me one by one till their numbers had reached a hundred.
"Would you guys help me with the Minor Task?" I asked and explained what I want. I did not have to explain much before they agreed, the merit points for this simple work are immense, and they will just have to spend half a day on it.
Ten minutes later, I saw the people I rescued, leaving with the Eight Star Silver Elite and its team. Seeing them leaving, I felt an indescribable feeling rise inside me, which I can't explain adequately.
I have felt this feeling very few times, but every time it comes, I feel happy as it felt to me with life, and for some reason, I always a.s.sociate it with the Killing Rule despite knowing the killing Rule is the exact opposite of it and quite pale in front of it.
It is like killing Rule is just a small fire spark, and this feeling is a lake full of water; they are the exact opposite, but the difference of quality and level between them is also very great.
I closed my eyes for a second before opening them with a sigh of disappointment.
"It will reveal itself in time!" I said softly before and turned back and flew back toward the Mariana Hills at high speed.
Time pa.s.sed as minutes turned to hours before hour turned to days and such twelve days had pa.s.sed since I've left the city, now only two days had remained, not even two days, one and half days to be exact.
I can't wait to go back to the city and spend some time with Rachel as strangely, I am feeling like our days together are counted.
I couldn't help but shake my head at such thought; it is my little paranoid nature. Whenever something good happened to me, I felt it would go away.
Today is the thirteenth day of my mission; half-day has already pa.s.sed. In the morning, I had already destroyed one camp, and now I am entering back into the Marina hills to destroy another Camp.
For the past nine days, I've been destroying at least two camps daily, Ive destroyed three twice but I needed the whole day and night to do that. Sometimes the process is smooth, but sometimes, I have to fight a b.l.o.o.d.y battle where I nearly lost my mind.
It is a dangerous job but it's worth it, as here I get to do something worthwhile. In the past twelve days, I have saved more than two thousand people, and when I saved them, all of them were in a miserable condition, being kept worse than animals.
Not only have we saved thousands of people these days, but we have also killed seven times more Grimm Monsters. The Grimm Monsters in camps were a minority in those numbers, most of the Grimm Monsters we have killed were those who got attracted by the big group I am leading out of the forest.
Still, despite killing more than ten thousand Grimm Monsters, there seems to be no change in the Grimm Monsters numbers, they just keep popping up one after another.
They are like vermins, no matter how much you kill, there always be more, though their seamlessly infinite number angers me, there is not much I could do other than keep killing till I was finally able to make a dent into their number.
This is the philosophy used by humans for thousands of years, and I am using the same as it is the only viable one in dealing with the huge numbers of the Grimm Monsters.
The huge numbers of enemies are disheartening, there is only one good thing about it, and that is after they are dead you can keep their stuff.
In the nearly two weeks, I got more than ten thousand storages from the Grimm Monsters, and from those storages, I got many good things, like a couple of natural treasures and some herbs that I needed to create a strengthening solution among other things.
I have also improved a lot, my fighting prowess has become a lot greater than before, and it would have been even greater if I had gone through the 3rd Transformation.
I first had thought that I am very close to reaching the 3rd transformation of the Secrete Method, but even after twelve days, I have not reached it, which made me wonder if I am really close to reaching 3rd Transformation.
So since yesterday, I am continually practicing the Secret Method. Every moment I am awake except when I refine my mana, it is really difficult to use any other method while refining the mana.
With my new soul, I could practice the Secret Method all day without putting any strain on it, but I had not as I was hoping to leverage the momentum of 3rd transformation to barge into the Major Cleansing of Body Cleansing Exercise, but now I did not care much about it.
I will be fine as long as I will be able to make another Amethyst seal while practicing it as with the secret method, I am also circulating the Supreme Combat Exercise.
I think the reason I am having a hard problem is due to my improved const.i.tution. It is not that I am just having a problem in making progress in the Secret Method but also in the Body Cleansing Method.
I am also having quite a problem in Body Cleansing Method; first, I had thought due to higher moves of it being difficult to practice, but I noticed that despite twice a day practice, I am not making much progress.
If it had been before, I am sure I would have gone through another Major Cleansing. The improved Const.i.tution has increased my power and talent, but it has also brought its own set of problems with it, with a stronger body and soul.
I did not continue to think about those anymore as I reached the camp of Grimm Monster, which I am going to destroy.
