Chapter 996 - Protection Amulet
There are two people on both sides of me; one is Human while the other is the Grimm Monster and both of them are armed to the teeth, ready to fight if at moments notice.
They are guards, behind them are others from both races, seeing them I knew the conflict had not started. Seeing that, I couldn't help but heave a sigh of relief.
I would have really hated it if I had missed the Big Battle, it is such a great chance to fight the worthy enemy and collect the resources, especially now millions of people came out bringing huge loot.
I looked around, and as I had expected, both races have made camps; the Grimm Monsters are on the right while the Humans are the left, and s.p.a.ce between them is being used as the market.
Seeing that, I walked forward without anyone stopping me. The camps are huge and both sides have millions of abodes, people could be seen everywhere, shopping from each other's stall. If I did not do any better, I would have thought the two races are acquaintances rather than mortal enemies.
It has been five days since the Tower hand opened, but people are still going inside the doves, which explains the huge population of both camps.
I was just walking through the market when I heard the familiar chirp and saw a blur coming at me before it landed on my shoulder. The silver is Ashlyn, and she is chirping and affectionately ma.s.saging her head to my cheek.
I am quite surprised seeing her do that, as being affectionate is not in the nature of Ashlyn, she is rarely this affectionate. "I missed you too," I said as I petted her. This was our longest separation since we bonded, she had never been away from me, more than a day.
'Chew Chew Chew…'
I was just about to ask her about when she returned and whether she had conquered the Tower, she had read my question without asking and started to tell me all about her.
She said she had returned two days ago after she Conquered the Tower. She said the tower was fun; not only she got to kill lots of Golems, but she had also killed lots of Grimm Monsters and took their stuff.
Though she said many things, she complained a little too, about me asking her to walk slowly in Tower, so that she could kill more Grimm Monsters and take their stuff, if not for that Ashlyn said she would not have needed even a day to Conquer the tower.
Hearing what she said, I became extremely ecstatic. It did not matter if she was not the first one to Conquer the Tower; her Conquering is more than enough. I wanted to ask her what she had received in reward, but I controlled myself and decided to ask after I set up abode.
With that thought, I walked out of the Market and walked toward a huge forcefield where humans have set up their abodes. The area of the Market is open, but the residential area is inside the forcefield.
Five days have pa.s.sed since the Towers opened, which means there are now five to six days before we leave the ruin, and before that, the big battle is bound to happen.
It is a battle, not only to destroy the enemy but also to take their loot, it will definitely happen within a few days.
Soon I entered the forcefield and found an empty s.p.a.ce to set up my abode, as I set up an abode I went inside. The first thing I did after entering the abode is a shower, my body is quite bloodied, and I want to get it off as soon as possible.
"What reward did you get after Conquering the Tower?" I asked, my voice was very excited as I had already controlled myself asking too long, so as soon as I walked off the shower and wore clothes. I asked Ashlyn about it.
Ashlyn chirped and exquisite while s.h.i.+eld, which is less than the size of the finger, had come out. Seeing it, I was a little disappointed, this s.h.i.+eld clearly an Artifact, I would have preferred it if it was Art or something else she had got.
Chew Chew Chew…
Ashlyn seemed to know what I am thinking and chirped, hearing that I became quite dumbstruck, "What! it is not Artifact?" I asked and quickly picked up the exquisite s.h.i.+eld and added my mana into it, but to my surprise, there was no reaction from it, I even tried adding my soul energy, but there was no reaction.
'It's really not an Artifact.' I thought as if it had been an artifact, it would have reacted by Mana or Soul energy, which I had inserted inside it, but there was no reaction from it.
"What is it if it is not an Artifact?" I asked, "Chew Chew, Chew…" She chirped for quite while explaining what it is and how it is used and hearing that I am quite shocked.
This exquisite, while Sheild in my hand, is one-time use Amulet to be precise Protection Amulet.
Once it is bound, it will hide inside the body of use, if the user receives an attack that can kill the user, it will activate automatically and protect the user for five minutes.
This Protection Amulet is very amazing, and its value is far far above Art in some sense.
As it can defend against the attack in the Limit of Small World, means unless it is a powerhouse that has broken through the limit of small world, they will not harm me as long as I am under the protection of it.
By the small World, meaning in my world, I won't even have fear of the strongest powerhouse for five minutes. Though there is a condition that when one bound it, one has to be at Knight Level, it will still work even after one broke through the Knight level.
Its value is immense; those people's central continent would be willing to pay a s.h.i.+t load of money, including Arts. It is like second life, even if only it will save for five minutes, it is still enough for them.
Especially to the children of the powerful, but I am not an idiot who will sell this. As I said, it is a second life; even if it is for five minutes, it is still worth it, and it would be total idiocy to sell it.
"Why do you not want to bind it, quickly bound it," I said as I gave her the s.h.i.+eld, this little bird had a habit of taking a huge risk, with this Amulate I will be less worried about her.
Chew Chew Chew….
"Ashlyn, it is you who earned it, you should bind it," I said when she asked me to bind the Amulet to myself, but how can I, it is a thing she earned herself, she should bind it herself.
Chew Chew Chew!
Ashlyn chirped, and this time her voice was forceful as she rejected, hearing it; I know she will not bound it, and if I kept insisting, she would feel hurt.
"Thank You," I said emotionally as before dripping my blood on it. one needs drip blood on it to bind it.
As the drop of blood fell on it, it levitated through before seeping inside my chest. I tried to find it inside me, but it had completely disappeared; it will only appear when I am a fatal danger.
