Chapter 119: Outburst
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
A giant hammer crashed down.
The camera on the drone pointed at Dumby. People couldn’t help but exclaim when they saw what had happened. That skeleton was in danger!
The heart in Dumby’s chest was pumping quickly, the flames in its head ran wildly, and the blue flame in its eye sockets overflowed the eyelids.
In Gao Peng’s data frame, the level attribute of Dumby was intensely flashing red on the number 20. It changed slowly. The zero turned into a one.
“The monster’s level just went from 20 to 21!”
The blood in its chest was moving about wildly. All the extra veins in Dumby’s body gathered in the chest to turn the heart red.
However, this process suddenly reversed! The heart kept shrinking like a ball of red wool whose strings were being pulled away. The veins then went out and entangled Dumby’s body. From the outside, it looked like Dumby was growing red colored muscles.
A muffled booming sound was heard. Dumby clenched its fists tightly. It was able to catch the attack by the Lakeside Giant Scorpion but was pushed a few steps back.
The water splashed onto Dumby’s arm loudly. Usually when the water reached a certain speed, it could even cut steel plates; but the Lakeside Giant Scorpion still had a long way to go before it could manage that.
The water that was thrown by the scorpion’s claw only pushed its opponent. It created a vortex on Dumby’s center, increasing its attack damage. The body part Dumby used to block the scorpion’s claws contracted inward, the veins pushed back like rubber bands. Both its sides expanded outward. It was as if its bulging muscles were releasing explosive power outwards. Dumby let out a silent roar.
Unfortunately, the Lakeside Giant Scorpion wasn’t weak. The two of them were in a deadlock, as their strengths were matched. But even if a monster trainer had more than one familiar, only one could fight at a time. That familiar only had one chance to battle. Whether it won or lost, it couldn’t fight again.
Thus, Dumby could only depend on itself for this battle!
Dumby bent its legs, stabilized its body, and then suddenly ran forward. It rushed towards the Lakeside Giant Scorpion!
The Lakeside Giant Scorpion was stunned and couldn’t react in time. Usually, when its opponent was attacked they would either jump to the side or jump backward. This was the first time it saw an opponent rush forward.
Dumby gave the scorpion a ruthless kick that landed directly on the Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s face. Two lines of clear blood rushed down its nostrils. The Lakeside Giant Scorpion was dazed.
As the saying goes, it’s easier to raise the devil than to lay him down. After the Lakeside Giant Scorpion extended its claws, it was difficult to retract them.
Dumby, besides reinforcing critical joints with your veins, you should use the excess veins for your legs, Gao Peng called to Dumby using the Blood Contract.
The flames in Dumby’s eyes flashed, and it nodded.
It was as if the veins had their own souls. The veins in the upper part of the body reduced, and the veins on the legs expanded outward.
Strips of red blood expanded and they were moved around, letting out a sound like bowstrings being twisted.
Dumby kicked out its legs. Long stripes could be seen in the air.
A kick landed right on the Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s head. The sharp white paws kicked through the shell on its head. Blue-colored blood flowed out of the broken shell.
The Lakeside Giant Scorpion struggled and struggled. It angrily made frantic movements towards Dumby’s body, looking like a broken doll.
Water emerged around the Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s entire body. They then exploded outwards, flying towards Dumby.
Dumby was tossed to the air. It did a 720-degree turn and landed on the ground. Its back was arched, and its nails dug into the ground, leaving a row of white marks.
The sudden injuries caused the Lakeside Giant Scorpion to lash out. The Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s claws movements slowed down. It breathed heavily as it closed its eyes.
The blood ran down from its scalp. The slimy blood went into its eyes, making it look especially ferocious.
Dumby gently turned its neck and shoulders. It stared at the Lakeside Giant Scorpion, fury still boiling in its heart.
“Are the veins its commander tier ability?” someone said, surprised.
Once a monster was promoted to the commander tier, it would have all kinds of incredible power. It was the beginning of its awakening when its powers would grow exponentially.
Depending on the type of monster, the amount of growth after its awakening would vary.
For example, this Lakeside Giant Scorpion was able to control water within a close range after its awakening.
It wasn’t ordinary water. It was something extraordinary.
Just like the water that appeared on top of the Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s claws. The water still embodied all the attributes of normal water; but if one wanted to use water to take a bath, for example, they would either need to consume a lot of power or improve their level of control over the water.
Some researchers believed that this was a kind of spiritual power that had the ability to affect this world. If water or fire were believed to be present, they would appear.
But this kind of opinion did not gain much recognition. The ability was too strange. Not only could it control the elements, it had all sorts of strange powers. Such a theory was too simple.
Dumby’s ability after its awakening wasn’t Blood-Thread Heart. Gao Peng could clearly see an ability slowly flickering. It came into view.
[Monster Name]: Death Bone Ape
[Monster Skills]: Bone Harden Level One
Bone Harden. The ability was as the name suggested. One could tell the effects of this ability just by looking at the name.
Although it was not as cool as having thunder or flames, this ability was suitable for Dumby’s crude and simple close-ranged fighting style.
A sound tore through the air. Dumby rushed forward crazily.
It used its thighs and jumped high into the air, lifting both fists. They looked like a pair of hammers.
The Lakeside Giant Scorpion flung its giant tail out with a whistling sound. Dumby was hit by the tail.
The ribs in its chest recessed inwardly. It let out a heavy groan, but still managed to stabilize itself
Dumby opened its mouth and bit down fiercely.
Liquid flew out!
Dumby grabbed the tail. It had exhausted all of its stamina with the last jump.
It clung to the scorpion’s tail and rotated 180 degrees. All the bones in Dumby’s body let out a crack as the Lakeside Giant Scorpion was forcefully thrown into the air.
When it fell, Dumby rushed forward and violently attacked the Lakeside Giant Scorpion’s sides with punches.
The scorpion’s weak sides depressed inwardly and broke, revealing the white and tender muscles below. Blue-green blood splattered out from its wounds and as its moans grew weaker and weaker, it slowly stopped struggling.
Finally, the Lakeside Giant Scorpion laid on the ground, drawing its last few breaths.
