Chapter 101: The Ball Of Souls
Flanders lowered his head and stared at the trembling ‘Helen’. With just a glance, Flanders knew her current state.
Helen herself was dead.
Flanders was very familiar with the judgment of death.
Helen’s body was completely dead. Unless he injected other people’s life force into this body like when he saved Warfarin, there was basically no hope for Helen to survive.
Naturally, Flanders had no interest in helping someone who had nothing to do with him.
However, what Flanders was interested in was that Helen’s body was maintaining a state of fresh dead.
And it was maintained for a long period as if the body was frozen in that instant.
It was very magical and interesting. Flanders did not know how the other party did it.
And the one controlling Helen’s body at this time was a tiny soul.
It was only half the strength of a normal person’s soul.
It gave Flanders a feeling of being incomplete.
Flanders initially suspected that the person behind it might have split a part of his soul and possessed Helen’s body.
On one hand, it ensured the freshness of the body, and on the other hand, it used Helen’s body to do what it wanted to do.
If it was not for the fact that he had just come into contact with ghost-type strange creatures, Flanders would not have been able to identify ghosts.
It seemed that there was a mastermind controlling everything from afar.
Flanders had a lot of patience and interest towards this kind of special existence.
He did not panic at all. On his ferocious face, that terrifying smile did not change at all.
[Fear points +500]
[Fear points +1000]
Flanders looked at the system notification.
“Even if it’s only a soul, it still has all the emotions that it should have!”
Flanders stared at Helen. He cast Fear and it landed on Helen.
[Fear points + 3000]
Flanders’s skill had successfully taken effect on a dead body.
To be precise, it had taken effect on the consciousness of the body.
‘Helen’, or rather, the ghost hidden in her body, let out an incomparably shrill scream.
Then, she quickly died amidst endless fear and pain!
Flanders did not show any mercy.
When the level 10 Fear was fully activated, and it landed on an ordinary person without holding back, that person would die on the spot.
Even if it was used on the Sword King, whose strength had not been weakened, Flanders was confident that he would be able to make the other party unable to break free and be scared to death.
Appreciating the twisted and pained expression on Helen’s face, Flanders nodded and turned his head to listen attentively to Helen’s screams.
It was as if he had appeared in an art exhibition hall. Flanders enjoyed the work that Helen had presented to him at this moment.
It would be naive to think that this was the end.
It was still far from the end!
The real terror had just begun!
At this moment, in a small black room more than ten kilometers away from Flanders, there were more than ten gloomy-looking people crowded together.
In the middle of them was a middle-aged man with his eyes tightly shut and his brows tightly furrowed.
The dozen or so people present were all mages.
The middle-aged man with his eyes closed was called Kridong. The strange creature that he had gained control over was a physical entity system strange creature called the soul ball.
Just by looking at the name, one could tell that this strange creature’s ability was related to the soul.
A strange creature of the physical entity system, but being able to use the abilities of ghost-type strange creatures, could be said to be a rather rare strange creature.
One of the abilities of the soul ball was to split the target’s soul into two.
This ability could be used as an attack or as a support.
The support would be like the current situation. It would split the host’s soul and let a part of it possess another person’s body to control the other party’s actions.
However, to use this ability, the best way to achieve the ideal situation was to possess a corpse without consciousness or soul.
Of course, if the target was a living person or animal, then it was very likely to encounter resistance.
In order to solve this problem, the possessor often needed to prepare in advance and possess half of his soul on the target.
Then, through some psychological hints and so on, bit by bit, it would imperceptibly influence their behavior.
Thus, the target’s body, or even the target’s mind, would accept the existence of the soul.
In this way, if the target wanted to control the target, the target’s resistance would be much lower.
Moreover, as the influence deepened, the soul that stayed in the target’s body could erase the target’s vital signs by itself, killing the target invisibly.
In this way, even if there was no corpse, it could still create a corpse.
It would be convenient to take over their bodies after they died.
Through this method, as long as the soul did not leave, the corpse would not decay.
Helen was killed by Kridong in this way.
Before she died, she had half of Kridong’s soul in her body.
So after Helen died, she ‘resurrected’ again.
In fact, Kridong was the one who controlled her body.
“Number 7, did you succeed?”
At this moment, a leader-like person asked Kridong.
“Something’s wrong! Something is wrong with this target!
The information is wrong, I have to retreat!”
Kridong shouted with a nervous expression as if he was in danger.
“Damn it! Can’t you even take down an ordinary human woman? Trash!”
The leader-like person was first shocked when he heard this, then he could not help but curse angrily.
He had thought that there would be no problem and was full of confidence, yet he was now told that the mission had failed.
The change in circumstances made the leader-like person feel extremely uncomfortable.
If the boss was uncomfortable, then the subordinate should not think that it would be easy.
However, Kridong also had his own reasons.
“She’s definitely not an ordinary person! The information was wrong!
I don’t care, I really have to retreat.
If the other half of my soul is damaged, I won’t be able to recover for another half a year.”
Kridong explained and was about to recall his soul.
But at the next moment, his expression changed drastically as he cried out in shock, “I’ve been stopped, something stopped me!
The scarecrow… It’s the scarecrow! Ah!!”
Kridong suddenly screamed in pain, and his entire body fell to the ground, twitching.
“What’s going on? Number 7, number 7? What the hell is going on?”
The leader-like person was confused by this sudden situation.
It was clearly a simple mission, how did it become like this?
At this moment, the situation developed on Kridong’s side.
“The… the other half of my soul has been destroyed!
In just an instant, it was destroyed!
No… What kind of power is this?
A power invaded through the soul!
Suddenly, Kridong raised his head and shouted, his expression was filled with despair and shock!
