Chapter 321: Can You Eat A Lily?
“Grr… grr…” Sophie muttered incoherently as she playfully tore into the flesh of an alien hovering on the brink of death.
The poor creature already had his vocal cords removed by a clean swipe from Sophie’s sharp fingernails.
The only sounds that echoed through the bloody room were the painful whimpers that escaped from his partially destroyed throat.
He was the last survivor.
Sophie had ripped apart every single officer present on the command deck using methods that were cruel and sadistic.
She enjoyed watching as her prey squirmed helplessly.
The sense of arousal flowing through Sophie’s body every time she plucked out another chunk of meat from the alien’s ribcage caused a fiery red blush to form on her face.
“Grr…hahaha!” wild laughter burst out of Sophie’s mouth as she finally granted the tortured alien the sweet release of death.
[Had enough fun yet?]
A sarcastic voice whispered in Sophie’s mind that briefly pierced through the fog of bloodlust that was clouding her judgement.
Sophie jumped up and down while shaking her head to get the annoying voice out of her head.
An animalistic roar reverberated through the room as Sophie desperately searched every nook and cranny for the mysterious voice.
[Seriously? You look like an absolutely deranged lunatic]
[Thank God you had some level of foresight to create me to protect Lily]
Sophie’s wild motions paused for a brief second as the voice in her mind seemed oddly familiar…
What was a Lily?
Could she eat it?
The mere thought of more flesh to consume caused Sophie’s mouth to leak saliva that fell to the ground.
Sophie’s scarlet eyes glowed darkly as her vision was suddenly enhanced until she could see every single layer of the starship.
There were small groups of food huddling together on each floor, but the grand prize was a room full of delicious morsels to consume.
The next mental message that entered Sophie’s mind had a tinge of panic.
[Hey… hey! Snap out of it!]
Sophie growled ominously and immediately activated her movement speed technique to teleport to the end of the corridor.
She scuttled down the stairs on all fours with motions similar to a crab. Every floor would be swept clean with the survivors dealt with in a matter of seconds.
There was no mercy.
Meanwhile the voice in her head only continued to get louder and louder.
Sophie furrowed her brows in irritation as message after message poured into her mind.
[Listen… I also received the last memories from my… um… our… sisters? This clone stuff is pretty confusing]
[Aren’t you the ‘original’? Don’t let your urges reduce you to a freaking animal!]
[Don’t think I won’t stop annoying you until you snap out of this!]
Sophie whimpered softly as the constant barrage was beginning to take a toll on her already fragile mental state.
Her reckless usage of qi energy was finally catching up as Sophie began to experience the first symptoms of qi depletion.
There was only a small pool of qi left in her dantian, so she was reluctantly forced to deactivate the ‘Cloud Treading Dragon’ technique.
[Look just take a few deep breaths… and calm yourself down]
[Breathe in… breathe out…]
[Breathe in… breathe out…]
Sophie’s head started to bleed as she recklessly launched punch after punch at her own skull.
Her animalistic mind wanted the noise to stop no matter the cost and hence this was the twisted solution it had come up with.
[ARE YOU CRAZY?! STOP HITTING YOUR HEAD!]
Sophie hissed and continued to bash in her own skull with ferocious force.
Seeing that a small dent was beginning to form, the mirror clone immediately stopped contacting her creator through the link.
It was clearly useless now to reason with a mad beast.
There was only one thing that she could do now…
Sophie hesitantly stopped punching herself and waited a few minutes to see if the annoying voice would reappear.
There was nothing but silence.
A joyful grin spread across Sophie’s face as she merrily continued on her journey to kill every single person on the starship.
Unbeknownst to Sophie, the clone was not capable of completely cutting off the mental connection between them and was watching her every move through the link.
(Unknown Starship- Seventh Floor)
(Sophie’s Clone POV)
“Big sister where are we going?” Lily asked curiously from inside the clone’s arms.
“How about we take a little walk outside. Your big sister is going to take you on an adventure!” ‘Sophie’ replied lovingly.
This kind and gentle tone was immediately changed as she addressed the ten mercenaries struggling to catch up.
“Move it! Or I will personally shoot a plasma round into your thick skulls!”
“Yes Ma’am,” came the exhausted replies.
These were all of the mercenaries who had claimed to be able to fly this starship model.
Of course, there was no time to verify this information, so the clone had just rounded all of them up.
‘Sophie’ had forcefully brought them out of the holding room and made them travel with her.
As for the rest…
It was a bit coldblooded to say…
But a large group of fresh meat needed to serve as a distraction for the bloodthirsty predator lurking aboard the starship.
‘Sophie’ continued to move through the endless labyrinth of connecting corridors and rooms while constantly checking the mental link.
There was no time to waste.
Self-awareness was an admirable quality which both Sophie and her clones shared.
Clones made from the ‘Rsychosis’ technique could only channel a fraction of their caster’s powers and ‘Sophie’ wasn’t sure that she could last longer than one minute if she had to fight the original.
The problem was that the mental link went both ways.
It was becoming increasingly difficult for the clone to keep her sanity with a constant flow of bloodlust entering her mind.
Already there were tiny specks of crimson that were beginning to form along the corners of her golden eyes.
“Um… won’t the crew hunt us down if we leave the starship?” one of the braver mercenaries asked hesitantly.
“No. Trust me when I say that the crew is the least of your concerns right now,” Sophie replied bluntly.
She didn’t bother to elaborate but instead picked up the pace towards the exit.
“Come on… we need to go a little bit faster…” ‘Sophie’ muttered as she could sense that her creator had finally made it to the location where the other mercenaries were being held.
Images poured into the clone’s mind showing her the brutal carnage that Sophie inflicted on the warriors trapped within the room.
Limbs were torn apart; blood splattered the once clean walls and stomachs were sliced open which caused intestines to spill out on the ground.
The emotions of endless bloodlust and terrible arousal were transmitted through the mental link which caused the clone to slow down her movements.
A full three minutes passed in agonising slowness as a terrible aura of death and destruction erupted from the copy’s body.
The mercenaries had already begun to back away with trembling steps but there was no escape for the small child trapped by the firm grip of the clone.
“Big sister…” Lily softly whispered.
“Why are your eyes red?”
