Chapter 1005 - Making A Move
Four days pa.s.sed by since I exited Tower, and now tensions are br.i.m.m.i.n.g between the two races openly.
Just an hour ago, I was disturbed by the Mid-Practice and was asked to solve the conflict between one human and Grimm Monster.
The tension is very close to reaching the breaking point, as the days leaving have to come.
We will leave this Ruin tomorrow or the day after that; we will know it after our homing bands turn green, it will sign that we will be teleported out in twelve hours.
Currently, there is no change in our Homing bands, but it will occur in the day, which I am sure of.
"Jen, we are closing the store," I said to Jen who was handling the customer, she was a little startled hearing it but nodded as she continued to serve the customers that are the line.
Seeing the bubbling tension, more than half of the Shops have already been closed, only about 40% of shops are opened, and those are also closing by the minutes, by tomorrow morning, I don't think there will be any shops present in the morning.
Soon, Jen finished with the customers, and we started cooking in silence. Usually, we cook after I come from the meeting but today is early dinner.
We finished cooking within an hour and finished eating in forty-five minutes.
The dinner had gone into silence, with we speaking barely more than one sentence as we all lost in our own thinking.
"Here, take this; it will help you in surviving the battle," I said as I gave her a storage pouch. "I can't accept it, they too much," Jen said while stretching the storage pouch back to me.
I've hired her for one Adamantine Level Artifact given by the Tower but what I've given her full Adamantine Set and something more.
"Take it, there is going to be a huge battle in a day, if something happened to you, your sister would not forgive me," I said to her.
She looked like she wanted to reject again, but seeing my expression, she did not do that.
"Thank You." She said emotionally after seconds of a break. She clearly understood how dangerous battle is going to be and how much those things inside the storage are going to help her.
"You should go back to camp quickly and use those things to increase your strength before the battle begins," I said she nodded before she came to hug me before she left the abode for the camp.
I stayed in adobe till 7:30 PM before I deactivated and walked toward the camp. When I looked at the Market, I saw it is emptier than I thought, people be it Grimm Monsters or humans are closing their shops rapidly and moving at their respective camps.
I was wrong earlier about not having shops by the Morning, seeing how rapidly everyone closed their shops, there won't be any shops in Market by midnight.
A few minutes later, I reached camp into the abode of Keira, where the conference room had gotten even bigger.
By 8:00 PM, when the meeting started, there were fourteen people on the Central Table; fourteen humans had conquered the Tower, compared to twenty-one on the Grimm Monsters sides.
"Tomorrow at dawn, we will launch the attack, but be prepared there is a high chance the Grimm Monsters will attack us before we do to them." Said Keira as she finished the meeting.
Half an hour after everyone left, I left the building as we at central had discussed the technicality of the attack we do or defend by the morning, by the end of the meeting, I again got night duty.
After I got out of the meeting, I did not return to abode and walked out of the camp and disappeared into one of the decapitated buildings while Ashlyn secretly flew up to keep an eye on the Grimm Monsters.
In a dilapidated building, I found a clean spot and activated warning formation, which I found in one of the storage Grimm Monsters that ahlyn had made. From the design, it looked like the product of the Tower.
As I said, it is a warning system with a range hundred meters; if anyone entered that range, I would know it.
Though nothing is perfect, with it and my killing Rule, barely anyone would be able to come close to me and not to forget my greatest a.s.surance is flying above, Ashlyn will easily spot any danger that comes at me.
With everything done, I took out a palm-size bottle off my storage and drank a twin color drop from it before closing my eyes. I am not leaving a single chance to practice, especially the Secret Method.
In every waking moment, I had been practicing the Secret Method with the help of Soul Tempering Essence which drops, I drink every few hours.
The Secret Method is very elusive and needs the most practice; I am practicing it every waking moment so that I could reach 8th and then 9th level as soon as possible.
Though I am practicing the secret method, it is running in the background; my main focus is always the Art.
Eldritch Art is the thing that could make my strength sour, and aside from my Runic Armor, it is only thinking, which gives me the confidence to stand against Ellen.
I am giving my everything to comprehend the profundities, so I could fully comprehend the 1st of Eldritch Art by the time compet.i.tion starts.
Time pa.s.sed by midnight I opened my eyes and pondered before closing again, but this time, I did not spread my consciousness into the Art, but to the tower, I have a feeling that I could crash through the 6th floor of Tower Today.
I had been trying it for a few days, but I did not get any success. Today will be different, though; I have a feeling that I might succeed today.
Boom Boom Boom...Crack
So, I closed my eyes and started to build the momentum to break into the sixth-floor, I built the momentum and crashed into the 6th floor, there was no success but, I had expected that and continued trying, and still, there was no success, and I was about to give thinking today is not a day when I heard the faint crack.
Crack Crack Crack...BANG!
Hearing that crack, the hope in me reignited, and I started to build more and more powerful momentum.
I crashed the energies across the roof and with a crash, there would be cracks which got bigger and bigger till they blasted the roof apart with the powerful bang.
I became ecstatic, seeing breaking through the 6th floor and wasted no time starting to refine my mystic energies.
As I started to refine, I found that refining on the 6th floor is quite hard but faster than the 5th floor as I could refine more energy in less than.
That is why it took me an hour to Refine the energies of the Wolf Lords Armor and one and a half hour to refine the energies of the Featherlight Method.
I had finished about 70% of the energies of the Domain of Withering Sand when Ashlyn had alerted me about the Grimm Monsters.
'So they finally made a move.' I thought, and I pressed the device which I had gotten from Keira.
