Chapter 189: The Despair of Amonro IV
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Greedy Flame Giant let out a roar of fury. After it assembled the nature force, multiple layers of blazing halos burnt on its dark-armored figure.
With a seven-meter high gigantic figure, the giant was slashing its enemies with the elemental sword in its hand.
In the midst of explosion, one after another burnt carcasses of Amonros dropped on the ground. The Greedy Flame Giant left a trail of burning flames on each of its footsteps.
Other than thousands of low-level Amonros, the Greedy Flame Giant was being targeted by around ten flying Golden Amonros and Enigmatic Amonros. The Amonros were attacking the giant from all angles, determined to crush it.
Meanwhile in the sky, Grimm was releasing glaring light and heat. His Flame Energy was spreading furiously just like a burning sun. He was chasing and crushing a Neon Green Amonro with the flames, not planning to stop until he had killed that Amonro.
As for another Neon Green Amonro and another way stronger Enigmatic Amonro, Grimm either chose to dodge their attacks as much as possible or just use his highly defensive Sorcerer Barrier to withstand their attacks.
Under a series of Grimm’s deadly attacks, the Neon Green Amonro was crushed and it fell into a bizarre mushroom-shaped building made of flesh. Determined to end the Amonro’s life, Grimm continued to chase after it into the building. Numerous thorns popped up on one end of Grimm’s magic staff which made it look like a mace.
Two shadows flashed through the sky, the other Enigmatic Amonro and Neon Green Amonro followed Grimm into the ruins.
The internal part of the building was pitch black, yet Grimm could rely on other senses aside from his vision. With the support of his Canine Olfactory Sorcery and Ultrasonic Sorcery, he landed on the ground with a loud thud.
Grimm’s figure quickly flashed and disappeared. He let out a growl and blasted another attack at the severely wounded Neon Green Amonro.
Despair washed over the Neon Green Amonro as it released a last ray of faint Neon Green energy.
“Die!” yelled Grimm. Under the white-colored Mask of Truth, unflinching determination burned within his eyes. The howling of the other two powerful Amonros at the side which came for the rescue did not get in his way.
Burning with Eternal Flames, Grimm’s magic staff which had transformed into its battle mode broke through the Enigmatic Neon Green Energy and hit the body of the Neon Green Amonro. Although the elemental energy of the Eternal Flames was not too fatal for the Neon Green Amonro, with Grimm’s astonishing strength and the support of Repulsive Forces, the Neon Green Amonro was blasted out of the ruined building.
Grimm breathed a sigh of relief. He finally gave the highly elemental-resistant and extremely defensive Amonro a deadly blow.
The other two Amonros that came for the rescue launched their attacks against Grimm. A long tail broke through Grimm’s Sorcerer Barrier and sent him flying. The Amonro’s attack gashed open his stomach and left a deep ghastly wound.
The powerful Enigmatic Amonro with red eyes had completely gone berserk, its speed and strength increased tremendously. This was a naturally gifted ability of the Amonro species, yet only very few elites among them were able to develop and apply it. What Grimm saw validated the information that he obtained after he autopsied the Amonro specimen that he had earlier on.
‘Hmm? This is the Enigmatic Energy? It even has the ability to erode?’
Using the Dissimilation Sorcery, tiny tentacles protruded from each side of the wound on Grimm’s stomach and entangled with each other. Yet, a small group of gray energy persistently latched onto the edge of the wound and deterred the healing ability of the Dissimilation Sorcery.
Another blast of attack hit Grimm’s shield. He lost his balance and crashed backward once again. Grimm’s was able to restore his dimmed Sorcerer Barrier to its original state only after consuming a significant amount of his Magic Power.
That was an attack from the other Neon Green Amonro.
Grimm clenched his teeth and turned his head around while enduring the pain in his body. The Golden Eye appeared on his Mask of Truth and it was fixed on the Enigmatic Amonro that was trying to attack him once again.
The powerful Enigmatic Amonro avoided Grimm’s Golden Eye attack easily in a flash, while Grimm was ambushed by the other Neon Green Amonro that took advantage of the situation.
“Damn!” cursed Grimm. The ceaseless attacks of the two powerful Amonros were rather challenging for him. Grimm released Magic Power all over his body and decided to escape for the time being while he comes out with a strategy to defeat these two enemies. Using the Repulsive and Attractive Forces, he disappeared from the ground and flared into the sky.
The internal part of the mushroom-shaped building exploded and turned the area into a sea of fire. A shadow flashed and dashed out from the fire. After a few space distortions, Grimm appeared a few hundred meters away up in the sky.
Gasping slightly, Grimm sensed the remaining Magic Power storage of his Demon-Hunting outfit and concluded that it was still sufficient. He noticed that the other dark sorcerer army had almost killed half of the Neon Green Amonros by cursing them based on the biological information they had obtained.
‘So they are using the Curse Sorcery to fight with the Amonros huh?’
Inspired by the senior dark sorcerers, the Myna appeared on Grimm’s shoulder after a space distortion. With a body full of bright feathers, the Myna was holding a nut in its mouth. “Did we win the battle? Woah! Damn! Scared the heck out of me! Damn! How dare you ambush the mighty Lord Myna like this! Beast Grimm attack! Kill this bastard for me!”
A flame drowned the low-level Amonro that launched the sneak attack, but the Amonro turned tail and fled without any injuries, completely ignoring the fatal damage of the fire sorcery that Grimm cast using his Body of Flame.
Grimm was slightly stunned.
‘Well who would have expected that I would bump into a fire element Golden Amonro. It would be a good experimental specimen,’ Grimm thought to himself. However, Grimm was not in the mood for collecting specimens.
Glancing at the Myna on his shoulders, Grimm snorted under his Mask of Truth. “What did you just say?” he snarled.
It almost seemed like Grimm would slaughter and eat the foul-mouthed bird right that instance.
“Just now? Er… Caw caw, caw caw caw caw! What else could I have said? Of course I said that you, my Master Grimm, is standing strong and mighty in this foreign world battlefield. Countless small and weak creatures are trembling under your commanding presence. Caw caw caw! Each and every one of your words will become the law of this world where no creature would dare violate…”
‘My words are the law?’ Grimm thought to himself in disbelief.
After being slightly carried away by the Myna’s downright flattery, Grimm returned to his senses and flicked the little bird’s head with one hand. After a cough, he told the Myna in a serious tone, “Now, the two fellas down there are a bit tricky. I will try to get their biological information. Then with your Curse Sorcery and my Magic Power, we will work together to finish them.”
In most of the foreign worlds where the Demon Hunters went for expeditions, the native creatures’ resistance to Curse Sorcery was usually very weak, which was one of the reasons why Curse Sorcery was considered a compulsory skill to master for every Demon Hunter.
To understand the origin of Curse Sorcery in the Sorcerer World, one would have to trace back to the first Civilization War.
Since then, the Sorcerer World had founded the Curse Sorcery based on the “Arminio parasite”.
The Myna slowly turned its head. With a little trace of disbelief and evil in its eyes, the Myna asked excitedly, “Are…are you sure you want to do that?”
With a frown, Grimm gave a puzzled look and said, “From the Curse Sorcery knowledge that I have heard from you previously, I can tell that you already have very advanced understanding in this area, so handling the two creatures shouldn’t be a problem for you. As you have said, the Curse Sorcery that you mentioned was created for that great existence, and you need a sorcerer with sufficient Magic Power to perform it. Do I not meet the qualifications?”
“No no no! Of course not!”
The Myna flew to Grimm’s other shoulder excitedly. Its gaze was filled with excitement as if it was on some kind of stimulant. Its wings kept flapping in front of Grimm’s Mask of Truth. After deciding that Grimm had not gone insane, the Myna stuttered, “Y-yes, yes, yes! Yes, that’s what I have said before.”
“Hmm? Then why are you…”
“Caw caw caw caw caw…!” the Myna burst into laughter when Grimm was still in the middle of his sentence.
The Myna continued in excitement, “This is a powerful and unique sorcery that I created with my seven thousand years of sweat and wisdom. This is a mega Curse Sorcery that I designed exclusively for that old bastard, how would it have any problem? According to the knowledge and theory of the Curse Sorcery system, if the current me were to perform this Curse Sorcery together with you, no creature below level three can escape from the curse. Caw caw caw! However, that old bastard didn’t use it even once until the day he died. So Master Grimm, are you sure you want to use it?”
‘Didn’t use it for even once?’
Grimm was stunned. The Myna did not mention this to him before. And based on what the Myna mentioned, even creatures on par with level two sorcerers could be cursed to death under this sorcery. He could not help but ask the Myna cautiously, “Why? What difficulty will the sorcerer face if he or she cast this Curse Sorcery with you?”
The Myna let out an over-excited evil laugh and shouted, “There is no difficulty at all! Even a newbie sorcerer-apprentice who just gained Magic Power can perform this sorcery effortlessly as long as he or she has the biological information of the target. However, caw caw caw caw…”
Grimm could not bear the smug look on the Myna’s face any longer. He looked at the two powerful Amonros on the ground that were completely unthreatened by his fire attacks and said impatiently, “What do you need me to do? Tell me now!”
“Caw caw caw! Young master, you only need to fuel me with Magic Power while saying the incantation out loud, so that I can communicate with the mysterious force and cast this ‘Mega Reversed Curse Sorcery’. Ahem! Now listen carefully, this is the incantation that I created to communicate with the mysterious force—Oh great and mighty Lord Myna, your faithful servant is willing to contribute his own Magic Power and beg for your great power and your noble will to guide…Ah! Master Grimm no-”
Grimm lifted the Myna by its head and threw it into the Dimensional Gap in a rage.
It was hard to imagine how that great existence of ancient times could take this fellow as a soul slave and had endured it for so long.
Being slightly out of breath from anger, Grimm was completely speechless with the so-called incantation that was designed using seven thousand years of wisdom. It was no wonder that great existence never once used this sorcery.
