Chapter 1109 Night Projection
Author's Note: Not Fixed. (Check previous chapter)
Since it was morning already, they only had one day left to uncover anything that may sabotage their operation.
("Hmm? What's that?") The system called Gustav's attention to something.
'Huh?' Gustav was baffled as well upon sensing something.
'A projection?' He said Internally as he noticed a transparent blueish frame bleeping in and out of existence above the area Gustav had focused his night vision on.
'What's happening... I feel connected to it,' Gustav added.
("I understand now... it's the night projection. I didn't think you'd be able to use this power so soon,") The system said internally.
'Night projection? Elaborate,' Gustav demanded.
("Using the all seeing vision of the night ability, you can project an astral copy of yourself to any part of the locations the moon glow touches upon... but this is an ability I didn't expect you'd be able to manifest for a long time. I'm surprised you're partly activating it unconsciously,") The system explained.
'I think it is linked with my desire to infiltrate the underground hideout... Will this be able to help me infiltrate?' Gustav thought as he tried to put two and two together.
("It certainly is possible... projections are easier to tweak than a real body. Without the use of the technology, those two you and E.E tailed, getting into the hideout is practically impossible because none of you possess any ability that could help you change body frequency and directly transport you into the hideout,") The system replied.
("Still, you'd have to fully create a night projection which... from the looks of things, you haven't gotten the hang of yet,") The system added.
'I need to try,' Gustav responded while focusing on the blueish frame bleeping in and out of existence.
'Link consciousness...' Gustav said internally as he directed his Cosmic Superior energy towards the area.
suit stood in front of them while speaking in a condescending tone.
"Do you know what you did wrong this time?" She questioned.
"We weren't accurate with our descent after leaping from the line to dodge the flames?" Falco voiced with an inquisitive tone.
"We were supposed to land with our feet is that is?" Angy questioned as well.
"Wrong," The lady in the red armor like suit responded.
"You're a team... if a single one of you fall into the endless abysmal dark hold, you have all failed," She added.
Falco, E.E, Aildris, Endric, Asbestos and all the other main IYSOP partic.i.p.ants had looks of contemplation upon hearing this.
"But... wouldn't we have to keep fighting if anything happened to any of our teammates during IYSOP?" Rosalin questioned.
"There will be situations where you all will have to scale through together without losing a single member... losing teammates would result in disqualification. This is also to teach you twenty to watch each other's back as every teammate is a valuable a.s.set. If you keep this in mind, the probability of losing teammates is lower during a round where there might not be a chance to make use of the subst.i.tutes..." The lady in red armor explained lengthily.
"Understood..." Aildris and some others nodded.
"You say twenty but there is only nineteen of us here," Yonda mumbled with a discontented scowl.
"Yeah but there's gonna be twenty of us," Falco stated in response.
"And how can we watch out for each other without all training together," Yonda voiced out.
"Haven't we gone through this already?" Matilda said with a frown.
"Mistress Beatrice, you have always said teamwork is our greatest a.s.set not individual strength... how is that going to work if we all don't train together from the start?" Yonda questioned with a logical tone.
"Indeed I did... I understand that a member is currently absent due to responsibilities," The lady in red armor who was obviously Beatrice replied.
"Mistress, Is it wise for us to go into battle with a teammate we've never worked with? I agree with Yonda's thinking as well as your teachings," Fildhor who was one of Yonda's henchmen b.u.t.ted in.
"I suggest another teammate is put in his place and upon his arrival he has to prove he is reliable to the team in battle based on teamwork of course," Yonda kept spouting.
"Unfortunately I'm not sure that would be possible. If you become the captain of the team, I will consider your offer," Beatrice replied while shaking her head.
"Captain?" Everyone was a bit taken aback by the statement as they realised they didn't know who the captain of the team was.
"What do I have to do to become the captain?" Yonda questioned.
"You have to show exceptional leaders.h.i.+p skills surpa.s.sing that of the current captain," Beatrice replied.
"Uh? Who is the captain?" This was the current question on everyone's mind after hearing this.
"Looks like you are all unaware. Well, you will find out soon enough... until any of you show skill surpa.s.sing the current captain, there won't be any changes," Beatrice said while pulling down the helmet covering her face.
"What? Who..." Yonda was about to speak again when he was interrupted.
"Get ready to go again... we're reaching the end of the training session. You all have shown immense improvements and I expect them to increase," Beatrice stated.
"I just wanna fight someone boring," Sheila who had been keeping quiet on the sidelines all this time finally spoke.
"You can fight me after you all successfully cross the line past the endless abysmal dark hold," Beatrice responded.
"Yaay yay yay don't go easy on me teacher," Sheila seemed fired up after hearing that and everyone shook their head with weird looks.
Sheila was the strongest yet the most childish and all the teachers having high ranked bloodlines, she was a handful to them during combat trainings.
Seeing all her feats, E.E and the others couldn't tell who was stronger between her and Gustav.
A sky blue portal appeared in front of them and transported everyone back to the area they had left a while ago.
Days went by very quickly and in the real world, Gustav was joining the Genxodus eradication team to plot their next operation.
They had spent lots of time a.n.a.lysing all the data they acc.u.mulated for months. This was going to be a big operation.
They knew it would most likely be impossible to eradicate the entire Genxodus with this but they knew they could deal immense damage.
They had come up with proper strategies and Gustav had divulged some secret info to them as well that would be beneficial.
All the while this was ongoing, Genxodus were also plotting their next step against the Mixedblood populace....
Before they knew it, only a week more was left before the operation would take place.
Gustav sat crossed legged in his room as he checked out the system stats.
-Name: Gustav Crimson
-Cla.s.s: Metamorphic Sub Parallel Being
?Mental Fort.i.tude: 423
[Attributes points: 67]
'When I reached the 100th level, Cohilia reacted... I felt it,' Gustav said internally.
("It just means you're getting closer and closer to being able to use its power,") The system stated.
'I thought you said I wouldn't be able to make use of it till I became an Alpha ranked?' Gustav responded internally.
("Yes... you won't be able to make use of its power till you are as powerful as an Alpha ranked mixedblood,") The system clarified.
'Oh...' Gustav understood what the system meant now.
His growth had always been abnormal since the system came into fray and even when he achieved a particular mixedblood rank he would be way more powerful than that.
With the system clarification, Gustav realised he didn't have to wait till he was apha ranked before he could properly harness Cohilia's ability, he only had to be as powerful as an Alpha ranked.
"Well... that's encouraging," Gustav muttered.
? ("Now that you've completed the device, our plans after IYSOP can be moved forward,") The system voiced internally.
"Moved forward? I have a terrorist organisation to deal with in the coming week, a compet.i.tion to win for earth apparently and a situation to take care of for one of my friends before those after IYSOP plans can be put into motion," Gustav listed out.
("The device is to direct you towards areas of lingering warp demolator energies, right?") The system inquired.
"Yes?" Gustav answered.
("Does it work instantly? Can we say for sure that upon activation in s.p.a.ce like you planned, it would immediately lead you in the direction of these energies?") The system questioned.
"I can't say for sure till its activated... and you know there are only specific points in s.p.a.ce where it can be activated so I hope you're not suggesting I try it out immediately," Gustav muttered while his eyes turned into slits.
("Exactly dumba.s.s I am...") The system responded with a ridiculing tone.
