Chapter 819 Bloodette’s Bully
Date- 2 April 2321
Location- Sky Blossom City, Dungeon Highway, blood rock cave gate dungeon seal.
Upgrading a regular Item card to a bonded item card was not that hard for an array master. But due to my multiple talents, I faced a problem when it came to choosing between the multiple methods to bond a card. Soul energy signature bond, Blood rule-bond, password-protected, and my personal invention Code Bond.
Soul energy signature bond was the popular one because this method was easy to set up as any rookie array master could set it and was hard to cheat.
Blood-rule bond, this method was popularly used by big families to make sure that the secret cards of their family do not get leaked and stay within their bloodline.
Password protected, as the name suggested to activate these cards one had to satisfy the predetermined conditions set by the creator. This required a very high level of array mastery, I wasn’t there yet. But I invented my own way to achieve a similar effect and named it Code Bonded.
Code bond was the product of the new way of array formation I was coming up with, it was nothing special, it made use of numbers to identify various soul pathways in nature surrounding us, just like how the binary code was used to interact with the computers back on earth. This idea was still in its infant stage and needed a lot of work since I needed to be able to define everything surrounding me using a number system, which was easier said than done. Especially when I had yet to decide how many numbers I should use to create a computing language, as I did not think that binary and ternary computing language would be enough to define the boundless and ever-expanding nature.
Since the Code bond was still in the development phase, I ruled it out. Leaving me with two options, blood rule bonded and soul energy signature bonded. Since I was the only one going to access this card I went with the simple and popular method, the soul energy signature bond. Considering the trouble one had to go through to get past the soul energy signature verification I felt like this was the best option available fitting my needs.
So without any further ado, I upgraded the storage trunk card to a bonded storage trunk card.
[Card Name: Storage Trunk
Card Type: Item Card(Bonded)
Card Rank: E-rank, Common Grade
Card Rate: 1 star
Card Durability: (100/100)
Card Effect: The user can summon a standard military-grade storage trunk by activating the card.
Additional effect: Soul energy signature bonded
Note: This card is bonded to a specific card apprentice and cannot be accessed by others.]
Having successfully created a bonded storage truck card I used it to store the storage card containing the heathen stone box that housed the calamity trap trapping demigod Redfall’s soul. Then waited for Cortney.
Considering that Bloodette could return to the dungeon seal any moment she wanted to with Cortney hiding in her rune, I could not help but laminate that it was taking too long for Cortney to get to the blood rock cave gate dungeon, growing impatient I was about to call Cortney but didn’t have to as I watched the dungeon gate finally open. I walked into the gate and it closed behind me.
“Cortney, what took you so long?” I couldn’t help but ask because I had explicitly explained to Cortney that I needed her help and to meet me at the dungeon seal. Yet, Cortney arrived so tardily therefore I couldn’t help but vent.
“I am sorry Wyatt, Bloodette wouldn’t listen. And kids also weren’t willing to let go of Bloodette.” Cortney apologized. I choose to forgive her for the delay but turned to glance at Bloodette, who glared back and yelled, “You guys have problems every day but Bloodette doesn’t get to have fun every day.”
Bloodette looked like the kid whose mom forcefully dragged her out of the arcade. But considering that not every day Bloodette gets to meet someone who would not fear or feel disgusted by her appearance I decided to not blame her, it was okay for her to lose track of time playing with people who don’t judge her- kids in this instant. But I still advised, “You do you know that there are Blood rule meanings that allow one to assume the appearance of the target whose blood they had consumed.”
“I know but I don’t seem to find them and this is way better. The kids at the orphanage do not seem to be bothered by my appearance. I had so much fun, you have to meet Daisy she is super cute, and Brain too. he is a jerk but he is fun. We did all sorts of crazy stuff together. God, I miss them already.” Bloodette’s mood improved as she spoke of her new friends.
“You can leave Cortney’s innate rune, when outside of the dungeon seal?” I asked hearing that Bloodette had a fun time with the kids at the orphanage.
“No. Her main body was still in the innate rune she created a small incarnation of hers and possessed it to play with children.” Cortney answered.
“And the orphanage staff were okay with it?” I sure as hell wouldn’t be okay with a midget humanoid made of blood playing with a group of kids.
“I told them that she was my familiar so they were not opposed to the idea of her playing with the kids,” Cortney whispered but Bloodette’s senses were sharp.
“And thanks to that Brain kept teasing me that I was your pet,” Bloodette growled at Cortney. Bloodette wasn’t really angry that Brain teased her because for some weird reason it helped her mingle with kids faster.
“Bloodette, if I hadn’t said that they would not have agreed to let you play with the kids.” Cortney reasoned with Bloodette.
“It seems you two had a fun and eventful day. Well, you guys deserve it after being held in the military base for days against your wish.” I was happy and sad for Bloodette, as asides from innocent children and us, nobody else would ever accept and treat her as one of them. And it was kinda funny to hear that solemn blood supreme was bullied by a kid.
