The Evolution Of A Goblin To The Peak - Chapter 295
Mai raised her mana to the limit. She placed back her sword to its sheath and hold the handle while looking at her opponents with sharp eyes. She was going to strike anyone that comes forward.
Yoasi, Cyndi, and the rest just looked at her warily. They couldn’t be careless when fighting someone as strong as the student council president. They silently poured their mana into their weapons.
Since no one wants to come, then Mai would be the one to chase them. She tightened her grip on the handle of her sword and slowly pulled it out.
[Drawing Sword Technique: Lion’s Slash]!
She slashed her sword horizontally and an image of a giant lion materialized behind her creating a powerful slash.
Yoasi cursed as he quickly jumped away to avoid the attack.
“High proficiency combat arts?!”
The other three too tried to dodge the slash.
An ear-piercing sound echoed in the surrounding area as the slash drew closer to Yoasi’s group.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Souta moved his body as fast as he could. He was slashing his sword at high speed but Wesler was trying to overpower him.
“Hehe, you’re quite strong yourself, first year.” Wesler laughed as he launched a barrage of punches at Souta.
The situation turned upside down. Souta was forced into a defensive position. He had no choice but to defend himself from his opponent’s fierce attack.
‘So this is the power of the top ranker…’ He thought while trying his best to block the punches of his foe.
Wesler’s strength was indeed powerful. It was much stronger than Jeanne and Wako who were quite powerful among B-ranks. These were the kind of people he was going to face in the Grand Tournament. If it’s like that then he felt that he was underestimating the tournament.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Souta couldn’t block all the punches so some slipped inside and landed on his body. Luckily, he had [Shadow Cloak] to absorb the damage made by his opponent.
The ground turned black and dozens of black tentacles rose. The tentacles quickly stretched out towards Wesler who was overpowering Souta.
“Not bad,” Wesler said with a smile before he raised both of his hands and smashed the ground.
Spider web cracks formed on the ground and after a few seconds, boulders of rocks burst out of it.
Souta jumped away as he used [Crimson Moon] and [Cross Moon] to destroy the boulder of rocks that were flying in his direction.
Wesler disabled his [Shadow Bind] using this. The boulders crashed the black tentacles one by one like a piece of paper.
“Increase…” Souta muttered as he controlled the [Gravitational Ball] behind him to increase the gravity around him.
This was to decrease the power behind the boulders that were shooting from the ground.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Yoasi, Cyndi, and Clandis were clashing with Mai. The speed of their attacks was so high that it generated gust of wind every time they slash or swing their weapons.
Duan Kun suddenly turned around and dashed towards Souta but Mai appeared in front of him. He was surprised but he still swung his dagger at her.
“Don’t think that you could get away from me,” Mai said coldly as she slashed her sword.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
Mai was fighting four top-ranked alone but this was enough for her compared to the last time. Wesler was the highest rank among them so with him gone, she could fight these four people on equal grounds.
Still, she didn’t think that these people were hiding their true strength.
She slashed down her sword at Cyndi but Yoasi appeared and blocked her sword.
The other two also appeared beside her and attack her with their weapons.
She twisted her body and kicked Duan Kun who was at her left side. Then, she crouched down and avoided Clandis’ spear.
She placed back her sword in its sheath and used her combat arts.
[Drawing Sword Technique: Gale Cutter]!
She spun around while slashing her sword at the same time producing sharp winds that could cut metal objects.
The four quickly moved away to avoid her attack but the sharp winds still managed to cause a few cuts on their bodies.
Mia glanced at Souta and saw that he became pa.s.sive at his battle. He could only defend himself against Wesler’s relentless attacks.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Souta felt his arms getting numb from blocking Wesler’s fierce attack. He suddenly lifted his feet and launched a powerful kick but it was easily blocked by Wesler.
“That pack some power but I’m different from those B-ranks that you fought before,” Wesler commented before he increased the speed of his punches.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Souta couldn’t block it at all. He received everything before he flew away and crashed into the building.
Dust and smoke shot up in the mid-air as some of the pillars fell down.
“d.a.m.n! This third year is strong…” Souta muttered. He didn’t stand up immediately as he observed his surroundings first.
‘You don’t stand a chance against him. His strength and speed are stronger than you.’ Saya’s voice sounded in his head. ‘You should borrow my power.’
“In terms of stats. He’s higher than me but I still haven’t use the full strength of my skills and spells.” Souta said as he stood up and patted his clothes. He then opened his palm and casted [Shadow Ball].
The black b.a.l.l.s slowly moved around and went to the other rooms.
“He’s a brawler so he will rush here on his own if I didn’t come at him. Plus, he’s preventing people from going in the third year area.”
He said and used [Mud Slide] to turn the floor into a pool of mud. This spell would at least prevent Wesler for 0.1 seconds. It was just a level 1 tier 1 spell so he didn’t have a great expectation for this spell.
If it was him this spell wouldn’t work at all as he had [Tier 1 Spell Immunity]. Well, even if he didn’t have that immunity, a tier 1 spell could hardly have an effect on his body just like the other B-rank powerhouse.
“This is to keep him busy for a few seconds…” He said as the ground turned into black and dozens of black tentacles rose up. He then drunk mana potion before casting another spell.
“For the final touch…”
The ten gravitational b.a.l.l.s above the building spun around and created a chaotic gravity field. The gravity was messed up because of this. Each area has different gravity levels and directions. Some were going up and down and some were going left and right.
“It’s time…” Souta muttered as he looked at his system. He found that he had 197 free attribute points. He divided the 150 points to Strength, Agility, and Dexterity Attributes. And the remaining 47 points to Intelligence Attribute.
This was enough to fight the Wesler but he doubted that this was sufficient to fight those high-rank officers of the Seven Deadly Sins. Well, he didn’t have to worry as he still had [Vajra Sword Saya] and [Soul Blood Earring] at his ace.
‘What are you doing?’ Saya asked him.
“I’m just preparing myself to destroy that man,” Souta replied to her. Even though she could possess him, she couldn’t see the interface in his mind.
He concluded that he was the only one who could see this interface even if other people possessed his body. Well, they could only possess his body, not his soul. That’s why he guessed that his system was bind to his soul and he could still see it even if he transferred his soul to another body.
There’s a lot of mystery behind his system. He will try to investigate it in the future if he had enough power to dominate strong people.
Outside the building…
Wesler was looking at the place where Souta crashed with a serious expression.
Suddenly, he saw black tentacles came out of the smoke and the area around him got heavier.
“What are you trying to do? Don’t tell me…” He quickly gathered his mana and charged forward.
He endured the chaotic gravity field as he moved forward while the black tentacles were trying to stop him.
If Souta wanted to move towards the third-year building, he had to stop him. That was his job given to him.
‘What can you do aside from using my powers and that universal grade equipment?’ Saya asked.
“Hm… Let’s see…” Souta smiled as he looked at his system. He had 76 skill points. It’s time to use these skill points that he and his teammates earned in the past few battles.
[Dark Cloud Hunting] Level 7
[Shadow Cloak] Level 4
He level up these two skills to level ten. His skill points decreased by 72 points just to level up these two skills, leaving him a total of 4 skill points in his system.
