Reincarnator - Chapter 382
Reincarnator - Chapter 382: Nerpa (5)
Elis Valentine rolled on the floor after Kiriel kicked her .
'This damned b****...!'
While she was focusing on the crystal, she had been caught off guard by an attack that rose up from beneath her .
Elis tightly clenched her teeth as she looked at the long scars on her body .
' . . . I've used all the strength I've saved from my Trait as well . '
Her body wasn't healing anymore .
Of course, her Trait was changing some of her pain to aid in healing, but it was no longer to the point of keeping her immortal like before .
A desperate situation .
The ground, which had once been filled with a vicious aura as it undulated in waves, had long stopped moving .
Of course, this wasn't the best for her .
Since there was one less variable .
Variables disappearing meant that calculating the future would become easier .
And at this rate . . .
That girl would kill her .
At this rate, of course .
'But I... am not alone . '
Elis thought of the soul fragment inside her .
Borrowing strength from Taehee hurt her pride, so she hadn't used it up until now .
But this wasn't the time to maintain her pride .
'I must... survive . '
Elis smiled at Kiriel as she clenched her teeth .
She shook the soul fragment inside her .
A cross-dimensional signal .
'Good . '
Elis saw that the soul fragment was working properly, and she spoke to Kiriel, waiting for her response .
’’I... really did not want to use this . I will kill you as painfully as possible . ’’
Elis tightly clenched the spike in her hand that had been modified to inflict as much pain upon oneself as possible .
It was a spike made to use her Trait in the most efficient manner .
Various sharp objects like saw teeth and fish hooks were attached to it .
The spike had been a great help in her use of her Trait up until this point .
But unlike herself, who cannot feel pain, it would be a horrifying experience for Kiriel .
'Right, I have to blow it up as well . '
Kiriel looked at Elis who had stood up and was now on guard .
'Damn... I was wondering why she wasn't using it . '
Hansoo had told them...
To be careful of something that the siblings had called a soul fragment .
Kiriel had assumed Elis hadn't received one since she hadn't used it up until this point, but it seems that wasn't the case .
'My situation isn't that great, either . '
Kiriel looked at the various parts of her body currently flowing with blood and frowned .
The Dragon God Armor had countless holes and broken parts .
And that spike that pierced through her armor was made in such a way that it took away a huge part of her flesh everytime it stabbed her .
Although she had the more advantageous situation, if Elis used her soul fragment then Kiriel would get killed no matter what .
'Damn... Do I need to run away?'
Kiriel clenched her teeth .
She couldn't do that .
Elis wondered why the attacks from Nelkipa's skin had stopped, but Kiriel knew .
Enbi Arin .
She was suppressing the crystal .
The crystal that was radiating a terrifying amount of energy .
If that girl's brother was at a similar level as her, then Enbi Arin would be in a bad state as well .
No, she might even be in a worse state .
And she was suppressing the crystal in such a state .
By herself .
'Damn... Her body is going to overload . '
She could not let Enbi Arin take on that burden by herself .
Winning wasn't the main priority .
If she ran away and Elis started to blow up that crystal, then the burden on Enbi Arin will become twofold of what it is now .
She had to drag it out as long as possible .
Kiriel clenched her teeth and tightly gripped the fang in her hand .
And Elis laughed at this sight .
’’Hahaha! You want to fight?’’
The soul fragment inside her was growing inside .
Proof that Taehee had received her signal .
And the next steps would be simple .
Taehee would give her strength .
And she would crush that damned b**** .
Very simple .
There were some hurdles along the way, but this was it .
She just needed to go up afterward . .
'Taehee... Did she become even stronger? Well, it's good for me . '
She was envious of Taehee who had climbed up to a level she couldn't catch up to, especially when they had been at a similar level in the past . But she was happy about it at this moment .
Since she would soon attain that strength, allowing her to solve the situation .
But as Elis was smiling at the vibrating soul fragment inside her .
A change occurred .
’’Huh? . . . Uhhhh?’’
Elis exclaimed in surprise .
The tremors inside her were calming down .
This only meant one thing .
Taehee had denied giving her strength .
Her disappointment was as great as her anticipation .
Elis was at a loss .
'Damn... Did something happen?'
No matter how she and Taehee disliked each other, not lending her strength in a situation like this didn't make sense .
That meant there was only one answer .
Taehee was in a situation where she could not lend her strength .
There was no other reason for Taehee to deny giving her strength otherwise .
Elis realized that there was an even worse issue .
'F*** . '
’’Oh my . It seems that things aren't going according to your plan?’’
Elis looked at Kiriel who was walking towards her with a cold smile .
And she realized .
That this was her grave .
Her body was broken beyond the point of return, and she had lost her final ray of hope .
And her killer was raging with bloodthirst .
There was no way for her to survive .
'...Did you make me struggle this hard just to get killed off in a place like this? Clementine, this goes against our promise' .
<Follow me . We will leave this hell of a place and... find our own promised land . Atop the <Noah>>.
The boat of their dreams that would take them to their land of dreams that Clementine had promised her .
But after losing all hope for the future, the reality she faced was crueler beyond anything else .
'Shit... I hope you find a way up at least, Ares . '
Elis looked around at the vast empty plane around her, and then and then her eyes locked onto Kiriel .
Her expression was full of endless despair .
Hansoo charged at Melchizedek, which smashed him away and laughed .
’’Hahahaha! I told you, you won't be able to win!’’
The area of the blue armor that Melchizedek had attacked cracked apart and made a strange noise .
But Hansoo ignored the force of the impact as he swung his hammer at Melchizedek .
despite the hammer flying towards it like a meteor .
Melchizedek had no thoughts of resisting as it continued to smile and only focused on attacking Hansoo .
The Mjolnir smashed into Melchizedek's body and made a huge noise .
The bright blue armor blew apart, revealing the flesh inside .
It shredded the Nerpa's body as bones broke and muscles exploded .
A force strong enough to crush his organs and his heart .
Nobody would be able to laugh at a giant hole in their body, but Melchizedek did .
’’Hahahaha! How many times is it now? Are you even counting?’’
The hole on Melchizedek's body was regenerating at an insane rate .
It wasn't even absorbing the bits of flesh and blood around the body to heal .
It looked like the body was creating something out of nothing .
Flesh grew back, veins reconnected, and bones regenerated .
Like an immortal .
And Melchizedek looked at this scene with satisfaction .
'Why do you think I gave up my previous immortality for this body?'
Although this body was needed, if the body itself was extremely weak and would become a factor that tied Melchizedek down in the upcoming war, then it never would've come here .
But it did .
For one reason .
This body provided an even better form of immortality .
'Amazing . '
Melchizedek smiled as it looked at the Nelkipa's vast energy flowing towards itself .
Melchizedek's previous body was a mechanical lifeform, but if all the systems and structures on top of Nelkipa were to be swept away, it was as good as dead .
But this body was different .
It continuously received all energy and matter from Nelkipa and regenerated itself .
As long as it was on top of Nelkipa and the Nelkipa was still alive, it could not die .
The battle against Hansoo proved this all .
No matter how
No matter how similar their physical aspects are .
There was no way that Melchizedek, which had no battle experience before this, could beat Hansoo who had tempered himself through countless battles .
But not here .
Above the Nelkipa .
It was a god .
Nelkipa's skin started moving up and down again .
And the cannons in the distance started to light up again .
Melchizedek laughed at this scene .
’’Hahaha! It seems your friends at the crystals are finished! . . . What shall you do?’’
If, in this already advantageous situation, they took back Nelkipa's controls?
There was nothing else to talk about .
Melchizedek smiled .
’’You don't need to hate yourself so much . Even someone like you wouldn't have been able to predict a situation like this . This is probably the first time anyone has seen an existence like me . ’’
'Watch what I do... with this power . '
It would be a great scene once he put Hansoo inside a test tube and placed him on the highest point on Nelkipa .
An even better viewpoint for Hansoo .
Of course, it'll only be his eyes that could move .
But at that moment
Hansoo chuckled as he said:
’’How can it be a first?’’
Hansoo smirked and spat out .
’’I've seen countless beings regenerate like a cockroach . Just like you . ’’
In the Abyss, there were beings that were even more like cockroaches than Melchizedek .
Beings who truly deserved the name 'Immortal' .
But the one who had stood up tall in the end .
The one who smashed them apart one by one and descended the Abyss .
Was him .
And as he finished his words
the thing he had been saving up until this point .
The thing he'd saved up by twisting all the muscles and mana inside his body started to squirm violently inside him .
<Yes . That . Do it . Squeeze your body . For every drop . Until it blows up . >
The final seed inside Hansoo .
The consciousness stored within the Nine Dragons Strike shouted out in joy .
And with that shout
the thing he had been continuously spinning and charging around inside him quickly started to spread throughout his body .
