All of them gulped every last bit of saliva in their mouth. The eyes jumped out of their sockets. The Green board officials saw their paranoid reaction and felt a sense of amusement and satisfaction."Alright, since our job is done," the man uttered, "We will leave now. Good luck everyone."All three Green board officials immediately yanked their mounts and headed for their way back to the shelter. The very next moment, a loud voice burst in their ears that made everyone come to their senses."Alright! Everyone… This is it. " Grisha was the first one to shout at the top of her lungs, "Don't get left behind.""Whoever is with the White clan… " A bald guy also rushed towards the floating castle, "You better keep up!""It's not always gonna stay still people… move… move… move!"Soon enough, the entire crowd burst with shots of adrenaline. They all climbed their mounts and rushed to follow their respective leaders. A few of the solo hunters also followed the crowd. Everyone now stormed to
Falco and Colt looked brutally flustered. Nakiya and Maira held their thumping chests. While Agenor scratched his forehead with dreadful mortification. However, their reactions were not over-exaggerated at all. Now that they had a closer look at the beast jogging next to them, the threat they felt was undeniably real. Last time he didn't have a mount on the hunt, but this time he does. Creed unintentionally caught them off guard and scared them with a sudden chase.Technically, Cursed Stallion should belong to 'Phantom' for killing the Malaka Chieftain, haunted along with everyone else. Fortunately, None of them knew Phantom's real identity, so it all worked out in Creed's favor.He had decided to reveal the Cursed Stallion as his mount on the hunt, whereas whenever he would mount the identity of a Phantom, he would just stick to his Inca Wings. Both of his personas now had their own separate and unique trademark modes of commute, which is exactly what he wanted others to see."Is th
"Jesus christ!" Colt could feel his legs going numb, "Are we really supposed to climb this freaking beanstalk?""Holy crap! That's tall…""Colt!!" Agenor interpreted as asking, "How many people do you see nearby?"Colt squinted through his pocket sized one-eyed binoculars and jerked his head back and wondered, "Eh!! What is this?""What's wrong?" Agenor whispered, "No. Nothing's wrong… I mean, that's the weird part. This spot should be swarming with climbers. We took the longer route, yet none of them are here! We are the first ones here… what the hell""For real?" Nakiya uttered as she looked around. "Fantastic!" Agenor smirked, "He did it. This is our distraction, people""What the hell did he do?""The plan! It's working…""No time for questions.." Agenor interrupted, "We are climbing with closed chakra so we'll have to carry Rain on our backs.. Let's take turns as we climb, except for Maira! Who wants to go first?""I can go first!" Nakiya bent her knees as she uttered, "Rain!
While the people on the ground were wrapped in the aura of panic and mayhem, 6 people were latching on to a giant vine dangling in the sky. The Rha members were only half way through and yet, their arms were trembling violently from exhaustion.Despite their dedication and zeal, all the members were panting like crazy. They were trying to climb as fast as they could. But they were at a height where it was impossible for anyone to see them from the naked eye.Even if someone on the ground would turn his head up, all they would see are unrecognizable worms wriggling over the vines. However, despite such a huge distance Agenor still didn't let anyone open their chakras. That's because anyone with open chakra or the ground would be able to echo-locate their presence even from miles away. He wasn't planning on blowing their covers yet.Colt was having the most hard time, while climbing. He was trying his best to not look down. His expression was so sharp and disturbing that it almost seemed
In the outside world, the hallway of the infamous Dominion Riot Center was bustling with a never ending crowd of hunters, and fighters. Buzzing with lengthy queues of lively and worn-out combatants waiting for their turns for the uncountable private and public battle simulator chambers.The hall of this place never lacks the crowd. One single place to test and train most of their skill set. Whether it's newbie or trained professional, this place has something to offer to all of them. All these people had come from various places. All kinds of fighters and hunters gathered up in different origins and backgrounds; yet most of them were getting along well with each other.Several hunters and fighters had grouped up as they casually chatted about various topic. Today, however, if one were to eavesdrop on their conversation, for some reason they all were having a chat around the common topic. "Dude! This is ridiculous… ""Have you seen the online forums… all of them are going crazy over
On the other edge of the Pandemonium, Creed sat on top of a rocky cliff with his rucksack next to him. His eyes lingered around his IOT compass attached to his belt. A gaze of solemnity hovered over his eyes. It was pretty obvious that something was going on inside his head."Hmm… looks like compasses don't work here! I can't sense anyone's rhythm on the ground… that's weird!"He chewed on his energy bar. "This Pandemonium... it's like a whole separate dimension…"Though it seemed as if Agenor and others had reached the Pandemonium first, what they didn't know was that Creed had been sitting on this random cliff for quite a while now. In fact, he had reached the Pandemonium long before other Rha members stepped foot on the surface. The only difference was Creed took a shortcut and climbed it by using his Inca Wings.However, since the Inca Wings were part of Phantom's identity he had to fly and reach the other edge of Pandemonium without being seen by anyone, not even his party member
"Kid… why do you have to shove your nose where it doesn't belong? Are you crazy!""You wake up and the first thing you do is scold me?" Creed retaliated,"Besides, How couldn't I have known if this boulder is some kind of freak of nature?"~sighAtlas replied, "You know, If I hadn't pulled your hand away at the last second, you would have been brain dead by now. Just stay away from that thing, you idiot. If you touch it one more time, even I wouldn't be able to save you.""What are you talking about? Are you saying this freaking boulder can kill me if I touch it again? Can you even hear yourself?""Kid, your arrogance is preposterous, isn't it? You think you are so tough that you can handle the residual killing intent of a god slayer?""Eh! Wait… what? hold on! " Creed jerked his head back, "What slayer?""Ah jeez… you seriously have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?""No! I really don't…""To dumb it down for you…the boulder is bundled with a surplus killing intent! This threat
"Crap!" The saliva in Creed's mouth dried up from a mere glance, "Ghouls! So many of them!"The entire valley was packed with thousands of wandering ghouls, with no sense of purpose or direction. If someone would take a closer look, they would seem most of them either sleeping, fighting, stomping, copulating, killing and even eating one another. "Yeah.. "Agenor uttered, "Over 10 thousand, I believe!""Damn!" Colt shivered at the heinous sight, "So this is what hell looks like…""So let's say we jump into the middle of the party… any chance of survival?""None...""How are we supposed to cross the valley?" Falco gritted his teeth. "Anyone got any bright ideas?""Should we push through from one corner?" Nakiya replied,"No! Terrible idea… those monsters are fast runners!" Maira shook her head, "If they catch any of us—which they will definitely do—there is no hope!""So let's make sure they don't… "Falco replied, "How about we create a distraction again? So that we slip through them fr
