"You should feel honored that your sacrifice will pave the way for me to reach the level of Admentine."
I wanted to know what Admentine is so excited about, but unfortunately, I couldn't as I am completely immobilized that I couldn't even twitch my finger much less talk.
"Now experience the power of my Life, Extraction Art!" It said with a crazed expression before it closed its eyes in concentration.
Seeing it closing its eyes, I had also become serious and asked Ashlyn to be ready. With its eyes closed, this is the perfect moment for asking Ashlyn to attack as it would catch it off guard, and for some strange reason, I decided to wait for a little before asking for Ashlynn's help but kill this Crimson Eyes Hyenaman.
For a minute, nothing had happened, but suddenly, I saw Ghostly Green Threads glowing, and inside me, each of each thread an illusory mouth had appeared, which looked quite scary.
I cursed in my mind when suddenly an immense pain shot through my body and soul. It is like somebody is trying to suck my body and soul, and that is what happens to me. Whatever this Life Extraction Art is, it is sucking my everything.
I was about to ask Ashlyn for help when I stopped again, and this time it is not because I have some strange feeling but because the Chaos Crus.h.i.+ng Holy Tower inside me had started to react.
It had started to glow resplendently, and tiny green runes started to release from it, there are thousands and thousands of Green Runes started to release from it. These runes started to spread to my body and soul before attaching to the hundreds of Ghostly Green Threads.
As they started to attach themselves, the color of strings began to change from Ghostly Green to Vibrant Green, which makes them feel full of life, unlike the Ghostly Green Threads, which gives the feeling of death.
While all these changes are happening, the Ghostly Green Threads, Crimson Eyed Hyenaman, remained oblivious to it. It had its eyes closed and had an expression on its face, which tells it is enjoying the most delicious thing in the world.
While it seemed to be in heaven, I feel I am in h.e.l.l. I am feeling immense pain right now, and the essence of my soul and body is getting sucked by the Grimm Monster.
I wanted to stop this process so badly as the pain of getting my life sucked. The pain is too immense, but I did not as I very much want to see what the Tower is doing.
It is a very foolhardy choice as every second I did not take action, my strength is decreasing, not only my strength but life is too as it is sucking my life.
The Toward kept releasing more and more runes, and these runes kept attaching themselves to the Ghostly Green Strings. After a one and a half minute, all the Ghostly Green Strings had become vibrant green strings, and runes have covered all the strings completely.
At the same time, the Tower also stopped releasing the runes, but its glow did not diminish; instead, it started to glow brighter and brighter.
The first few seconds later, nothing had happened, but a few seconds later, I found multicolored energies started to gather into the base of the Tower, and the immense pain I was feeling had also stopped all of a sudden.
The energies contain all sorts of auras in them, but there is one thing common in them all of these energies contain chaotic emotions in them, which is why these energies are attacking each other, repelling each other when they come close.
Sensing such familiar aura from energies, I did not have to think about their source as it is clear that they have come from the Crimson Eyed Hyenaman in front of me.
I immediately looked in front of me and saw a drastic change in the Grimm Monsters in front of me. Its expression of Ecstasy had turned into that of horror, and the worst thing is, it's expression has been frozen as it had become a statue just like me.
The only part of it, which shows what it is feeling right now is its eyes; there is horror, confusion, and induction all emotions mixed in it.
This is entirely unexpected, it had dreamed that after consuming a human, its const.i.tution would upgrade enough that it will be able to reach Adamantine without much problem as for breaking the limits, it is not much problem for it, as with Life Extraction Art, there are no limits it can't overcome.
I was looking at it when I started to get a faint feeling of being bloated; I immediately looked inside my heart s.p.a.ce only to see it is filled with colorful energies.
These Energies everywhere in my Heart s.p.a.ce and they are most dense at the base of the toward, half of the Toward have nearly filled with these colorful energies.
As I was looking around in my heart s.p.a.ce, the feeling of being bloated had increased again, and I did not have to think for a bit on why I am feeling it. It is obviously due to these energies.
As for what I have to do with it, I have to refine it though the Tower.
So, without hesitation, I started the Refining Engine, only to see it is harder than usual to refine these energies. These energies not only are the Life energies of the Grimm Monsters, but they also repel each other, which makes refining them very hard.
But I have no choice but to refine them as I could feel that the Tower is sucking more and more energy into my body, and I will soon reach the limit of the number of energies I could store in my body and for what happened after that, I have only two guesses.
Either I will be stuffed completely with these energies and explore, or the Tower will stop sucking energies from the Grimm Monsters.
I don't like either of these two odds, these no way I want to pop up like a balloon and I also don't want to stop sucking as I am clearly aware of the value of these energies.
These energies may Grimm Monsters energies, but they are very powerful and nutritious; if I can refine them through the Tower, then there is no question my strength will increase immensely, and there is quite a high chance that I might able to become a Golden Elite.
I had thought I would need at least one month to become a Golden Elite. I am quite generous with time as the acc.u.mulation that needed to advance to the Golden Elite are immense and that I didn't had any confidence that I could become one but now I have a perfect chance, as long as I grasp it fully, there will be no one who will able to stop my ascension to the Golden Elite.
So with this thought, I found a new purpose and started to refine faster and faster. One after another the rune of the first floor of the Tower began to lit up, and soon it reached the final stage.
As I reached the final stage and I am about to move the energies to a certain way, I found the way is blocked. This had never happened before, so I forcefully tried to pa.s.s the energies through it thinking it might work, but not only was I not able to pa.s.s, I also received a small shock.
A small shock is not the only thing I got, with it came small information from the Tower saying, the first floor is incapable of refining these energies. I will have to take them to the second floor for refinement.
Understanding it, I couldn't help but curse loudly in my mind.
