Chapter 40: Comparing Evil
I saw the blade tremble slightly.
“In times like this, shouldn’t we be deciding the victor by playing chess, or make some form of gamble? Even a coin toss is fine as well! Why did you actually choose shooting!? Getting a blade to compete with you in shooting, what kind of mentality is this!?”
“No, no, no. Isn’t this a more normal course of action? Since you want to compete with me, then obviously, I will have to choose something that I specialize in. And if it’s something I specialize in, it’s obviously shooting games.”
I said proudly while I kept nodding my head in agreement.
Bloodmoon was silent for a while, and then, suddenly, a stoneman appeared from the floor. It then grabbed Bloodmoon and rushed towards me!
“Don’t you think you changed your mind too quickly!?”
The ice totem that protruded off the ground sent me to the skies. With a slight swing of his blade onto the ice totem, the ice totem was instantly sliced into half.
Looks like Magic is still usable, that’s good.
“Why can you actually still use your magic!?”
The stoneman jumped, and it actually reached the same height I was currently on!
“How would I know? Why don’t you google it?”
Using a Charge to the back, I dodged its slash. Spreading out my pair of wings, I instantly flew higher.
“This sure is a good place. In this place, I don’t really have to care about which magic spell or ability I use.”
“You… You’re really making me unhappy!”
On the stoneman’s back, it actually grew a pair of wings as well. And, with a single heavy flap, it actually gained the ability to fly as well!
Impressive, impressive. Such a heavy structure is able to fly even while using wings made of stone. Just how much power does it have… But, it doesn’t matter anymore.
“Arcane – Ice Man-Eating Flower”
Countless of ice vines sprouted out from the ground, instantly grabbing onto the stoneman which was about to fly!
Immediately after, a gigantic mouth appeared from the ground, and with the mouth opened wide, it bit onto the stoneman.
The stoneman fiercely slashed towards the man-eating flower, trying to shatter it.
“As I thought, you’re only borrowing a human body to completely bring about your berserk form, and with the energy from the berserk form, you use it to control the body to battle. Although it has the ability to move, it has lost a lot of its power, am I right?”
It thought of something to say, but, it suddenly saw an incoming red cross!
“Super Arcane – Punishment – Tearing Cross!”
The red cross did not penetrate the stoneman, rather, it pierced into Bloodmoon’s hilt!
“Don’t underestimate my accuracy… After all, other than that, I don’t have anything else that is worth being proud of.”
The pierced Bloodmoon stopped moving, and the stoneman slowly began to crumble, allowing the man-eating flower to swallow it into the ground.
While Bloodmoon instantly fell onto the ground.
“Otherworlders… Just what kind of existences are you people…? How are you able to cause this world to…”
“Because we have better resources than you guys, I guess.”
I replied with a smile.
“The hard work that you people put in, your concepts, world, theories, and sources, have all probably been digitized by us. Although I’m not really clear either, to us, your world is simply nothing but numbers.”
“To give an example, if someone from your world is not familiar with a certain magic spell, that person might not be capable of unleashing 100% of its power. But, if it’s us, we will definitely unleash that spell at 100% power every single time. Well, of course, we have our own problems as well. Even if we unleash a spell at 100% power, we might not be able to completely control it.”
Just like the ice dragon.
Even though I’m capable of successfully summoning it, I was not able to completely control it, causing the spell to collapse in the end.
“Is that so? Then why are you guys here in this world?”
“Even if you ask me, I have no idea either. I’m just an odd-job worker.”
“… If you’re not willing to say it, then forget it.”
“Hey, hey, hey. I already told you I don’t know. I want to know as well, you know? Suddenly being thrown into this world and whatever… Speaking of which, just what went on with you? Little Bai said he obtained you after killing a wolf. What was that? Your pet?”
“【Carrier】would be a better term. Just like your main body outside, it’s currently being controlled by me.”
“Oh, that’s right. Back then, I was controlled the moment I activated you.”
“Hmph, that’s because you guys usually activate me in moments of crisis. In that tired state, controlling you guys is simply easy as pie.”
“Haha, that’s indeed so. Then, return the control right to me.”
“What are you talking about? Aren’t you the one being controlled by me?”
“Ha, looks like you’re the one that doesn’t get it…”
I quickly flew beside Bloodmoon, and then, grabbed onto the red cross stabbing into Bloodmoon.
“If I were to entirely destroy your concept of existence here, what do you think will happen?”
“… You bastard, you can’t be thinking…”
I slightly turned the cross in my hands.
“Although a talking blade is really interesting, I have never believed a soul other than myself, do you know that?”
“Hey, you bastard…”
“Ah, am I different from your usual users?”
I pulled the red cross out, and then, fiercely stabbed it in again.
“This is something that I will only say to a soul that’s about to disappear. I hope that, in your next life, you will not provoke someone who wore a smile the entire time he was conversing with you.”
After saying that, I pushed the red cross in my hands, and with a roar, the Bloodmoon in this world instantly turned into countless shattered pieces!
“Arcane – Dark Swallow.”
A black hole appeared in my hand. I stretched it to the front, and Bloodmoon’s shattered fragments were instantly absorbed into the black hole.
Obtained [Blood Spirit – Altered] Ability.
Enables user to enter a berserk state. All physical stats increase by 50%, all magic resistances decrease by 50%.
Passive Ability: When using sword-related weapons, absorb 2% of the damage dealt to the targets as HP.
“It looks pretty good~ Don’t you think so, Bloodmoon?”
After saying that, the entire space instantly shattered, and the surrounding scenery began to spiral at high speed.
The heavy sense of dizziness instantly caused me to kneel on the ground. When I regained my senses, I actually saw someone wearing a complete set of red armor currently heading towards me!
Geez, the feeling of just getting off a roller coaster is extremely terrible. What’s with the ruckus at this moment…
I quickly leaped to the side to dodge her attack. Twisting the Bloodmoon in my hands, I struck the back of her neck heavily with the back of my blade.
Then, with a Restrictor of the Frozen Earth, I enveloped her in ice.
Like this, she should be able to calm down, right?
But, an attacking warning suddenly flashed on my right. When I turned to look, Bai Yueguang, who actually grew a pair of wings on his back, was currently flying towards us with a white katana in his hands!
What is he doing?
Twisting my body to the side, I dodged his attack, and asked.
“Hey, what are you doing?”
Bai Yueguang looked at me weirdly.
“Weren’t you being controlled?”
“Seems so… Probably because I was too handsome.”
Bai Yueguang suddenly fell onto the ground, and began vomiting, without any signs of stopping.
Geez, why don’t you have a sense of humor?
