Chapter 898 - Building Momentum
It only took a moment for his 'Phantom Method' to activate, and when it activated, just one look of it had completely blown my mind.
It is the Armor Type Phantom Mystic Method; it had completely covered his body and looked like it was made of Ice Elemental Metal, the one thing of this Armor that most impressed me is its helmet, it is in world's Image which gave the whole Armor an otherworldly feel.
As I am observing the Armor, I am flas.h.i.+ng back repeatedly. At the same time cursing about having such bad luck.
If it had used any other conventional type method, it would have been fine, even the Speed type Method would have been fine, but this traitorous b.a.s.t.a.r.d has to have the Phantom Type method.
It makes things very difficult for me, the Phantom Type Methods really gives a lot of benefits to the user that are greater than all the basic methods, if it weren't for that then I wouldn't be scared s.h.i.+tless.
"I'll ask you again to join the Glorious Grimm Race, and your life will be spared; if you are still adamant on declining, then I could only kill you to cleanse your soul and let you be reborn into the Glorious Grimm Race." He sprouted bulls.h.i.+t again in the same priestly voice.
"Shut up Baldy," I said, I've had enough of this traitor's bulls.h.i.+t; if it had not been strong I would have decapitated him to stop blubbering nonsense.
Asking me to betray 'The Human Race' is mad or really lost its mind in the brainwas.h.i.+ng of the Grimm Monsters.
I will never betray The Human Race, no matter how much I am oppressed by them. I had rather worked hard to become strong to clean some spoilt root rather than betray the whole race.
"You have been corrupted by the sins of human Ancestors too deeply, very well I shall kill you to cleans all of the corruption you have suffered and let you be reborn into the Glorious Grimm Race," he sprouted bulls.h.i.+t again and disappeared from its spot.
Next moment, I felt an icy feeling only to see him appear in front of me and its icy blue sword coming at me, cleave me.
Zup Zup Zup
Seeing that even my mad self felt extremely scared and used feather-light energy to move away to my horror, it followed after me and its Icy sword still came after me.
Seeing that I grit my teeth and used the option that I had not wanted to use, I used more featherlight energy that my body could handle and flashed away from the traitor's blade, which is just palm distance from my neck.
But next moment, I found him appearing behind me and again swung its sword, and I again used more energy than I could handle to dodge its attack.
As the energy of Featherlight got refined, it got more powerful but my body remained the same despite it getting more refined.
So, I had to use a limited amount of featherlight energy; if I used more, then it would damage my body.
Now every use of the extra energy is damaging my body, and if I continue to use it to such a degree, then I will only be able to use it for half an hour, which is really really less for rescue to arrive.
Ashlyn had been sending me flashes of her fights, and I know lots of Platinum surround her; if she came to rescue me, then it will bring me more harm than good as with her, she will bring the force of the Platinum that had been fighting against her.
As for counting on the other, that's not possible as they are in the deeper s.h.i.+t that Ashlyn, they are in such condition they could not come even if they know there is juicy meat like a traitor.
So, I have to save myself, and I have been furiously thinking through the various options while running away from his hot pursuit when suddenly, some change occurred in my temple.
The phantom 92nd seal had appeared inside me; I had unconsciously created the 92nd seal that I had been trying for the past seven weeks. With the appearance of the 92nd seal, the ranging momentum inside my body and soul increased further.
It now becomes powerful enough that it needs only slight power; I will now only need to create two seals at most if I can create that, then I will momentum strong enough that it will crush the limit and make me Platinum in a second.
So, with great motivation like fear of death and lack of time, I started to circulate the body cleansing exercise with my all, I channeled my everything and did not care about injuries I am suffering due to the pressure I am feeling.
"Give up, your body's condition already deteriorating due to you over drafting the energy, accept the death, and be reborn into the Glorious Grimm Race," He spoke as he saw blood running out of my eyes, nose, and from veins on my temple.
The blood is not coming out due to me over drafting the energy, but due to my crazily circulating Supreme Combat Exercise inside me, I have to create the seals if I did not then not only I will die here but also Ashlyn which I don't want to see happen ever.
So, I am furiously circulating and breaking out of one circulation after another; if this continues then, it won't be long before I have 93th Phantom Seal in my temple.
"Brainwashed Idiot," I said to his offer, hearing that rage appeared in its wolf masted head and it came at me with fury, this time there was not the slightest mercy in its attack, each of its attacks was aimed at taking my life.
This increased pressure had helped me immensely, and I was able to create the 93rd seal sooner than I thought and started to 94th seal right after.
The greater the pressure and threat of life is, the faster I will be able to improve, and to be honest, I did not feel such pressure in the past seven months as my opponents were never Platinum Elites. I would never think of fighting them before as I never had power, I only got when my method energies got refined through the 4th floor.
It's not like I have never had life and death battles in the past seven months, I had many times, but those battles were thousand and thousand monsters attacking you, in those battles chances of losing life were really high but with my speed, I was perfectly capable of running away.
So there was never a really desperate fight where I had no other choice but to improve myself within the fight or there will be sure death.
This fight is a desperate fight, where I could neither fight back nor run; I could only dodge without making a single mistake, which gave me unprecedented pressure and motivation.
Finally, I crossed the 24th move, and the 94th seal was created, and just as it did, terrifying momentum started to seethe inside me in a fury, readying for breaking any limits that tried to block its path.
