Chapter 125: Going To The Store To Get Milk
“I’ll handle the one on the right,” Sophie whispered to Cleo as she adjusted her stance to lower her center of gravity.
It was important to maintain your stability and posture during a fight to prevent any openings from appearing that your opponent could use to attack.
Sophie’s upper right appendage shot forward and intercepted the strike by the Mendolesa warrior while Cleo engaged with the sharp witted Servie boy on the side.
Members of the Arachnais tribe were born with six relatively short spider appendages jutting out of their backs but Sophie’s physiology was a bit different.
That did not mean that she was at a disadvantage compared to the other Arachnais as what she lacked in quantity….
Was made up for by other benefits.
Her spider appendages were sharper and of greater length which significantly increased the range of her strikes.
“What are those weird things?” the Mendolesa boy growled as his sword strikes were blocked with ease.
What came as a surprise to him was that his sword was beginning to show cracks whenever it crashed against the hybrid girl’s appendages.
It had to be known that Kain’s father had passed down this sword to him when he begun his training and this particular blade was made of a rare metal called adamantium.
The battle between the two fell into a deadlock but beads of sweat formed on Kain’s brow as he was forced to avoid the rapid attacks of the hybrid girl.
Perhaps it was time to unleash his hidden card.
Frozen impact shock!
Sophie stumbled for a moment as the ground beneath her feet shock and a thin layer of ice slowly crept up her body.
A sword cultivator would never miss this opportunity.
The Mendolesa boy lunged at Sophie and swung his broad sword directly at the hybrid girl’s neck.
Sophie’s eyes burned red with rage.
Strength flowed violently through her body and the familiar urge to hunt surged in her mind.
The ice shattered instantly as she casually raised one arm to deflect the attack.
Kain saw the small movements of the girl but paid them no mind.
He could already picture his sword slicing easily through the flesh and blood of the hybrid girl.
Could an arm withstand the full force of a broad sword?
Not by a cultivator who was only in the qi spirit stage.
Sophie smirked as she channeled her qi to flow in the familiar pattern of her most deadly martial art.
Before Kain’s disbelieving eyes, the hybrid girl suddenly split into three separate people with each being almost identical.
His broad sword shook slightly in his hand, but he pressed on and his blade connected to the neck of the figure in the middle.
It was the real one!
Kain felt the solid impact of his sword slicing through the hybrid girl and secretly felt a deep sense of relief.
This opponent had given him a great deal of pressure.
Fortunately, it was all over now.
“Is that all you got?” a demonic voice whispered softly into his ear.
The voice was oddly seductive and yet all Kain could feel was shivers running down his spine.
The three images of the hybrid girl faded away as Sophie gripped the Mendolesa boy tightly and sank her fangs deep into his flesh.
Hungry…. must feed…. prey….
“What the.…” Kain groaned in pain as he desperately tried to shake himself free.
He found himself unable to move as a strong feeling of drowsiness made his vision begin to darken.
Sophie was not worried about killing him as she had discovered during the training camp that her venom glands could enhance a poison in three different ways.
One was to boost the lethality of a poison by increasing its corrosive properties while another would add a sleeping agent to a poison to knock out her target.
The last enhancement could cause aphrodisiac- like symptoms in the victims but Sophie had yet to test it out on an actual person.
Kain closed his eyes and fell into a deep slumber.
He did not even notice that Sophie had pressed his barrier device to manually activate it.
Now it was time to help her princess.
Sophie turned around to help Cleo but was astonished to see the situation unfolding before her eyes.
(Aven Petalfall’s POV)
“Activate the barrier device on your uniform before I slit this girl’s throat,” he yelled at the hybrid girl.
Aven firmly pressed the cold metallic sickle to his hostage’s neck.
It seemed that it had been the right choice to target the weak and delicate girl who had acted as bait for the ambush.
She could not stand one strike from his mighty sword before collapsing to the ground and begging for mercy.
Aven had noticed how dangerous that hybrid girl was during her previous fight with Kain, but it appeared that she cared for this girl.
“Please don’t hurt her,” the hybrid girl screamed in desperation and fear as she kowtowed in awe at his handsomeness.
“I had eyes, but I failed to recognise Mount Tai!” she begged and pleaded.
“Don’t worry ladies… I will deal with you myself,” Aven yelled heroically as two beams of sword light struck both girls and activated their barrier device.
He turned around and struck a pose while the gentle sunlight streamed down on his face.
Is no one my match?
A few minutes passed and he was now shaking hands with the instructors and the assistants of the training camp.
“You are quite possibly the most talented cultivator we have ever had at Zrudread University,” Instructor Selvon praised as he spoke in a humble tone.
“It is my honour to offer you a spot in the super mega ultra elite class.”
“Wow he is so cute,” came the shrieks of his adoring fangirls who rushed to his side to ask for an autograph.
Aven was very patient and personally interacted with each of the beautiful ladies surrounding him when a familiar voice caught his attention.
“Son I have finally returned,” came an elderly voice.
Aven gasped in surprise as a middle aged Servie man with a grey beard and bent wings appeared in front of him.
“Daddy?” Aven teared up as he hugged the man.
“But everyone said that you left me and mom to run away with your secretary!”
“No, my son. There was a very important reason that I left for fifteen years,” his father replied.
“I went to the store to get some milk.”
Aven forgave his father and the two reconnected under the cheers and thunderous applause by his fangirls.
This was the happiest that Aven had ever experienced in his life.
But his day was not done yet as to his complete and utter bewilderment….
The sand beneath his feet had turned into money!
“Hahaha! I’m rich!” Aven dived into the pool of Enas credits and swam with a great big smile on his face.
“Err… Cleo… what did you do to him?” Sophie hesitantly asked as she watched the Servie boy roll around in the sand while laughing madly.
“I simply trapped him in a mind illusion that will slowly erode his sanity until he is driven mad,” Cleo explained in a nonchalant tone.
“Plus, it alters his mental and emotional state while being stuck in the illusion,” she added calmly.
Sophie thought that she was a monster but holy hell….
Her girlfriend was one stone cold bitch.
Fuck… but it was turning her on.
Cleo mistook Sophie’s conflicted expression as one of disapproval so she hurriedly explained that her mental spell would only last for a few more minutes.
Maybe when she broke into the higher realms of cultivation, she would be able to drive people to insanity.
But she was far from that level.
Cleo approached the joyful Aven still giggling happily and gently pressed the button on his device to activate the barrier.
“See no harm done,” Cleo smiled at Sophie as she tried to reassure the hybrid girl that she would never break someone’s mind during a college exam.
Wait a minute…
Why did her girlfriend look almost…. disappointed?
