Chapter 709: Attack 1

There was some gray moss growing on the ground and walls, while the air
seemed to be heavy with moisture, forming a faint white fog.
Nasira looked around cautiously but did not find anything unusual.
“Be careful, if this is really Anil’s Garden, it will definitely be a
“Let me do it,” Manasi the magic knight walked forward and his full
body of armor started making sounds. He knelt down on one knee and rested
his arms on the ground.
“Fire of Clarity.”
A purple circular pattern lit up around his arms, and the purple
snake-like pattern drilled into the ground.
A cluster of yellow flame ignited spontaneously on the ground and turned
into a fiery snake, moving around as though it was a living thing.
“Keep up with it, it will bring us to the deepest core of this area,”
Manasi warned and got up.
The rest of them did not say much, but followed behind the snake tightly
and moved forward rapidly. Soon, they entered a crude tunnel, and as the
distance they traveled increased, the white fog around them got thicker
and the air became moister.
The bright fire snake that was leading the way started to gradually
become dim, as though it was being restricted.
Manasi had to take out a few weird looking things like a snake’s
gallbladder and throw it into the flame to barely sustain the flame of
the fire snake.
“What’s that sound?” Nasira suddenly stopped, “Did you both hear
At that time, the three of them were already deep into the crude looking
tunnel, and they were surrounded by cold, hard rock walls.
“Sound? What sound?” the thousand-legged serpent frowned and looked
Suddenly, a group of distortions passed by behind him, and two of them
exclaimed and instantly attacked.
Two groups of black fog hit the stone wall behind the thousand-legged
serpent, the impact causing quite a number of black stones to fall off
The thousand-legged serpent reacted to it by growing a large amount of
hair all over his skin, of which the texture was that of a living
creature. His hair started popping out in all directions frenziedly, like
needles popping out under high pressure, and most of the spiked hair hit
the stone wall and made a crisp clinking sounds.
“Watch out, above you!” Nasira shouted.
The thousand-legged serpent hurriedly looked up, just in time to see a
group of transparent distortions lunging towards his head.
Garen punched the walls of the stone wall tunnel. A large number of rocks
were smashed into powered form, scattering onto the ground and creating a
A several meters deep large pit appeared on the stone wall, and numerous
dense cracks spreading around it.
“Ah?” He unclenched his fist and looked at the stone wall.
‘This should be an independent underground passage, so there won’t be
any connected tunnels around, you should just give up.’ Black Sethe
“This is indeed a little troublesome,” Garen nodded. “If only I
could fly, just like in the previous world, I could just fly straight up,
and not even this place could trap me.”
‘If I’m not wrong, even if you could fly, if you don’t figure out
the tricks and methods to leaving, you will probably not be able to
leave.’ Black Sethe said in a low voice, ‘There seems to be some sort
of spatial distortion here. No matter where you go, space will eventually
be twisted and you will be directed into a downwards direction. Moreover,
if you go downwards, unless you break through this entire planet, you
will never be able to leave.’
“Can you find a way?” Garen continued to move forward. The
surroundings of the passage changed from a bright yellow tunnel into a
rough stone wall tunnel.
‘I need time, how can I think of something all of a sudden? Just keep
moving forward, so I can get to know more of the spatial rules here.’
Garen speeded up and continued walking deeper into the tunnel.
“Ah!!” the thousand-legged serpent shouted. Her whole body lit up in
a purplish-red glow and a purple flame started burning in her eyes. She
opened her tiny mouth wide and shot out a shivering, distorted purple
light, which looked like a transparent twisted tip of a knife.
However, a strange phenomenon appeared, the purple laser went straight
through the distortion and did not have any effect on it.
The thousand-legged serpent froze with a shocked expression before she
was directly covered by that group of distortions. She was being wrapped
in it and it looked as though she was being stuck in a huge lump of
She struggled for breath, but she could not get out of the distorted
Nasira and the Manasi tried various methods to cut open the group of
transparent distortions, but they were all futile. All they could do was
watch as the thousand-legged serpent got smaller and smaller inside the
Her body began to melt like a candle.
Her face began to decay and melted into lumps of dripping light yellow
fluid. Her eyes were the first one start melting, as well as her breasts,
nose, and other protruded parts. Before the melted fluid could slide down
any further, it would rapidly merge into the group of transparent
“Damn it!!” Nasira attempted to use her hands to rip open the
distorted slime, but it was to no avail. Her energy-absorbing physique
did not work, and all she could do was watch the thousand-legged serpent
struggle inside the distortion.
Sweat started dripping down her forehead.
“Damn it! What the hell is going on in this place?” Nasira felt pain
in her hands, so she immediately took her hands out, and when she glanced
at her palms, they were already a little corroded.
“Let’s go!!” Manasi grabbed her from behind and started running
backward, and after a few steps, they notice that they were just running
on the spot, then they turned around and continued running forward.
Both of them were still in shock, and the thousand-legged serpent’s
twisted and hopeless face gradually disappeared behind them, consumed by
the darkness. They continued moving forward by following the Fire of
Clarity, and soon they put everything behind.
“The thousand-legged serpent is an upper ranked person! Don’t worry,
she will not die that easily….” Manasi comforted. However, the both
of them were aware that the thousand-legged serpent was AG’s
subordinate instead of a member of the Witch’s Association, and as they
were not that close, it was unlikely for them to pay a huge price to save
Being an upper-level person did not only represent their strength, it
represented life and vitality. It also represented the same for
upper-class blood breeds.
The upper blood breeds could isolate part of their core and preserve it
while their main body could still maintain its peak state, just that
their endurance would be weaker. By doing so, when they need to execute
an extremely dangerous mission and they were sacrificed during the
process, they could extract the essence from the preserved core and
quickly create a new body. Of course, reviving would cause that person to
be weak for a long time, at least a year or two, but it would be better
than dying directly in a fight.
Similarly, the upper-level witches had similar tricks; they could make
use a large number of secret techniques to strengthen their own body, and
also the Broken Lizard Tail method, which sacrifices a part of their body
when they are in a life-threatening danger. The most common way was to
use their alliance.
The alliance was the witches’ supernatural companions that belonged
only to them. The alliance itself did not have high intelligence, but
they were an incomprehensible illusory being that only witches could
Suddenly, they heard a piercing scream coming from behind.
Is was the thousand-legged serpent!
She sounded like she was in extreme pain, the instant that they heard her
piercing screams, Nasira and Manasi felt chills all over their body and
they involuntarily speeded up.
Nasira was almost sprinting.
Before they got too far, she suddenly stopped, stood still in the tunnel
and dared not move forward. Manasi who was behind her almost knocked into
Nasira slightly took a step back and stared at the dark passage in front
of them alertly. She did not speak and all she did was point in that
Manasi looked towards where she was pointing and saw a bald man dressed
in black standing in front of the channel, blocking their way.
The most prominent feature of that man was his shiny bald head, but
strangely, there were various sized eyes covering the top of his bald
head. Those were all human eyes with a sharp contrast between black and
white, the eyes kept blinking, and it looked oddly creepy.
The man stood with his back facing them, though there were dozens of eyes
at the back of his head, and he was motionless. It seemed like he was not
a living person, but a sculpture.
Both Manasi and Nasira felt an inexplicable wariness of the man.
“Let’s do it!!”
Nasira suddenly rushed forward and made a sideway kick. Along with a
terrifying roar, she took out a few transparent air bombs and threw them
directly at the man.
The air bombs were comet-shaped, and they lined out in a straight line on
the back of the bald man.
The air bombs exploded but the bald man was undamaged.
Right at that moment, a huge force rushed out violently behind Nasira and
hit her from behind.
Nasira staggered forward, seemed to have tripped on something, lost her
balance and fell forwardly onto the floor. But she immediately felt
something entangling around her waist.
She caught a glimpse of a number of black tentacles behind her, each as
thick as a water bucket. The moment the tentacles entangled around her
waist, they became transparent and started secreting a large amount of
She immediately made a weird shrieking sound. Then, her left arm broke
off and her whole body became blurry. As though she’d teleported, she
disappeared on the spot and appeared in front of the tunnel, which was
more than ten meters away.
It seemed like Manasi used the Broken Lizard Tail method, and they ran
into a forked road which suddenly appeared in front of them.
“We’ll go separate ways!” Nasira shouted and ran straight ahead
without turning back. The tentacles were so powerful that they were much
stronger than an upper-level blood breed. Each tentacle was extremely
sticky, and it was impossible to break free from it.
At this moment, she felt the burning pain on her waist; even the Broken
Lizard Tail could not even get rid of the fluid, and while this thought
made her gasp in shock, she involuntarily increased her pace.
Along the way, she dropped a few dark red disks, which automatically set
off a cracking sound once they were thrown, and drilled into the ground
like a tiny octopus.
They were strengthened time bombs that she’d made specially. They were
attached to extremely powerful alliance forces, in other words, the power
