Date- 3 April 2321
Location- Sky Blossom City, Guild Association Mall, Warehouse no.234, Card Lab
“Grandma Asong, Are you sure you have not morphed into a monster, it sure doesn’t look like it from the outside.” Aba did not seem to be convinced by Asong’s words. As soon as Aba finished speaking the shell monster jumped into the air and landed right above Aba and swallowed her into it before Aba could react.
Seeing this Agatha muttered, “Sorry, my hands are tied.” Aba’s realm was weak so did not notice the shell monster’s moment but the same was not true for Agatha. Normally she would have come to ba’s rescue but before she could act she received a message from Asong asking her not to interfere while she taught Aba the lesson. Therefore she could only watch as the shell monster’s 32 slimy tentacles wrapped around Aba and swallowed her whole.
“Ahhh! Where am? I am dead is this afterlife?” Aba finally reacted but soon she found herself in an unknown location and going through her memories she remembered being swallowed by Asong turned Shell monster and believed she might have been sent to the afterlife at a very young age.
“…” For those of us outside, Aba being swallowed did raise alarm but soon hearing her voice from within the monster we all gathered that she was safe. Especially, Agatha whose duty was to keep Aba out of harm’s way.
“Hello, is anyone there?” Aba’s sound could be heard from inside the shell monster. It appeared Aba could not peek at the surroundings of the shell monsters as Asong did earlier. That was to be expected as this Asong’s origin card.
“…” Seeing Asong’s actions up till now I could tell that she had inherited all the dream abilities of the Oceandream turtle monster or at least the dream space ability. But these abilities seem to have been enhanced during origin card creation and with the world’s blessing. I felt the Asong’a origin card’s dream space ability had been enhanced because the Ocean dream turtle monster’s soul inside the dream space could only peek at the surroundings of its main body but not communicate.
As for Asong swallowing Aba’s soul into the dream, space was not surprising as the ocean dream turtle could also do the same. It usually uses this ability on the parasite’s infesting under its shell after they are put to deep sleep using its shell’s deep transient hibernation ability. But Asong did not have to go through that hassle she seems to be able to swallow the target’s physical body to drag their soul into the dream space. This must be another enhancement of the world’s blessing.
The enhancement brought to the dream space ability of Asong’s origin card by the world’s blessing was astonishing but what troubled me more was whether the target dragged by Asong into the dream space could benefit from the dream body refining ability. If yes then things were going to get complicated soon. Because the dream body refining ability’s nourishment to the physical body was very advantageous in many ways than one could imagine if this information were to be leaked Asong will become a commodity for big families to train their younger generation. The benefits of the dream body refining were very tempting I am afraid some may not hesitate to kidnap Asong and lock her in a dark room to have her help them nurture their family’s younger generation. I hope Asong knows better than to reveal this advantage of her origin card. Or was this way she was not showing her origin card info to me.
“Ahhh!” Suddenly Aba’s panicked scream sounded from inside the shell monster followed by a bunch of nonsense, “What is happening, am I shrinking? I can’t feel my fingers. My hands have been replaced by paws, My body… has morphed into a monster. Why is this happening to me? Ahhh!”
“…” Hearing Aba’s miserable cries everyone in the room turned to look at me and Cole whipping the sweat on his forehead asked, “Master Wyatt, what kind of origin card did make for madam Asong.”
Clearly, Aba’s cries frightened these people not knowing what was happening to Aba inside, but I knew what was going on so I was not that worried about Aba but still answered, “There is nothing to worry about, Asong seems to have put Aba’s soul under an illusion.”
*Sigh* hearing Agatha sighed in relief and prayed that Asong doesn’t go overboard with punishing her princess. If Aba gets a trauma she doesn’t know how she is going to explain herself to her lord.
“Little Aba, how does it feel to be a jewel-eyed cat? This is what happens if you respect your elders.” Suddenly Asong’s voice interrupted Aba’s scream for help.
“Auntie, is that you? You look young, thank god you are here. W-wait don’t tell me you are dead too? Did my dad kill you for eating me? Before that, why were made young and I a monster?” Aba clearly needed to get her priority straight.
Aba awakened into a world of white, be it the ground or the sky everything was white, and to her dismay, she couldn’t find anybody in there so she panicked, waking up alone in an unknown space combined with her last memories of being swallowed by her aunt who had morphed into a shell monster, Aba mistook that she was dead and this places as the afterlife.
Before Aba could stress about her being dead she suddenly felt that her body shrink and she was standing on all her fours. Aba tried hard to stand on her legs but couldn’t on her legs for more than a few seconds. Soon she noticed she could not feel her fingers and toes. When she checked her hands and feet in a panic to her dismay they had turned into paws and she seemed to have a tail. That was When Aba realized that she had turned into a monster and couldn’t help but scream in panic.
