“This is far more than simple storms.”
As the group of eight stood inside a newly-conjured protective Sand Sphere made by Bin, the new addition to the party, Betelgeuse, frowned and crouched down.
“It’s no good! My arrows do nothing to it!”The archer leapt to the back, barely avoiding an attack from the strange and powerful beast. Bin tried to contain it but the Light Magic did close to no damage.Its hide was outrageously tough and the bones protruding from its back were negating almost everything that came its way.It banged its limbs on the ground, roared, then charged straight ahead,bashing its massive body against the relatively minuscule shield of the female knight.Surprisingly, the woman was able to stop its mad charge for a couple of seconds. She groaned in pain but otherwise held her ground and even managed to deliver a retaliating blow with her short sword.
“How’s your shoulder? Has it recovered?”As they were slowly descending in the seemingly bottomless trench, Bin, with a quiet voice, asked the silent female Knight.Before responding, she caressed her previously wounded shoulder.“Thanks to your timely ministrations, I’m feeling good. Let us focus on the task at hand.”“Aren’t we already doing that? It’s just that… this awkward silence is killing me.”“Hm?”The woman looked at him in confusion, clearly not sharing his thoughts. As a non-talkative person, Ak’na did not seem to mind the long si
Bin charged at the last commander pest, striking him with the blunt of his staff and blowing him to the back. Following that up, Jasbin rose from a pool of blood and diagonally slashed his sword, ending the abomination once and for all. Simultaneously, Jasmine stood in front of a medium-sized rift and used Gandar’s magic to break it into nothingness. It took them four hours to get rid of all the Rifts inside this realistic and foreign world. Fortunately, they were attacked only by the Pests and the big Rift they were looking for wasn’t here. Jasbin was still downcast and mourning his friend’s loss, but that did not stop him from aiding the rest and doing his job. At least Ak’na survived or else he wouldn’t have been able to move on and continue to fight.
It happened without their realization; they were pulled from within the paintings and appeared outside with Jasbin and the rest circled around.“...”Bin was the first to notice, but due to the shock, he sat there, dumbstruck. As for Jasmine, once she felt the chilling temperature vanish, she raised her head and saw Betelgeuse, Arbert, Lenna, Bridget, Ak’na, and Jasbin, giving her a strange look.Startled, she pushed Bin and jumped to her feet, her face flushed red and her body slightly fidgety.“Ahem!”Bin followed up and stood up, he fixed
“This is strange…”“You don’t say!”Betelgeuse was looking at the wasteland before his eyes while pondering about something.It has been two days since the group departed from the Ghost Theater and made their way to the Dragonland, but the path they took, albeit short, was surprisingly filled to the brim with Pests and Rifts.“Professor Tanna clearly told us this was a safe route. The fact that it’s infested with Rifts probably means there’s a big Rift…”Lenna frowned as he looked at the clustered crimson portals a fair distance away. With the bracelet broken, Bin no longer had the ability to deal
“What are you doing?! This is madness!” Elmina furiously shouted at her colleagues, who were urging their families inside the main tower of the city. The blinding blue light was getting more intense and it was getting difficult to even see five meters ahead. Although the first shot of elemental energy caused the Pests to fiercely retaliate, they were still supposed to proceed as planned. Yet, out of nowhere, the Hyper-Destructive Blaster, which laid beneath the main tower, dormant yet ready, was activated without permission. Once she went to check, Elmina saw many of the High Scholars order their subordinates to increase the capacity of the Blaster and ready themselves for the sudden evacuation. Apparently, the massive Pes
“Hurry up, Bin!” Although she was fending off the horde of Pests, Jasmine could not fight forever. She remained close to Bin and continuously swung her sword at any incoming enemies. At the same time, Bin was strengthening his connection with the white crystal. Slowly but surely, a gentle wave of white light flowed from within his body and started taking the shape of a human-sized portal. Unfortunately, Jasmine was reaching her limits and ended up getting blasted far away. Her body crashed on the ground and rolled a couple of times. Although she hastily got back on her feet and ran back, it wasn’t fast enough to stop the Pests from reaching Bin. With all his concentration focused on the connection, Bin could not defend him
When Bin finally regained his consciousness and opened his eyes, he found himself in an overly-extravagant and spacious hospital room. He took a couple of seconds to look around before slowly sitting up.He wasn’t particularly injured and the overwhelming exhaustion he was subjected to prior and after opening the portal was completely gone, fortunately.“Bin.”Somewhat softly called out to him, thus did his gaze jump to the source of the voice. He was facing Elise, Emilia, and, unexpectedly, the now grown-up Ryne. The three were sitting on a wide leather sofa and chatting quietly only to be startled by his sudden awakening.His mother ran to his side and supported him, fearing that he was experiencing pain.Latest Chapter
