The numbers on the clock represented different abilities . The fourth bullet, for example, can turn back time on her body, healing her no matter how much damage she takes as long as she’s still alive . It wouldn’t work if the time represented by the golden clock in her left eye is 0 .
If she fired it at herself, there is no stopping this restoration of her body .
Like the fourth bullet, the first bullet can be used on herself as well . It can speed her up so much that it’s hard to match her in speed .
This allowed her to get close to Wu Yan without him being able to react .
She placed her head on her shoulders . Gazing at Wu Yan’s face, she licked her lips . She also didn’t forget to caress his face while grinning .
“You smell so nice…”
She grinned from ear to ear . She stared into his golden eyes .
“Say, Onii-san, you mind telling me why your pretty red eyes turned golden?”
Her sweet scent wafted into his nasal cavity . Wu Yan would like nothing more than to stay like this if this scenario was normal . However, he didn’t have the time for that right now…
He breathed in deeply before grumbling . He tilted his head to give her a sideways glance .
“Is that really okay? To touch me like that…”
Tokisaki Kurumi backed away when he discharged his lightning at her . The electric shock was enough to paralyze the hand that was touching his face .
She shook her slightly charred hand and she commented on his ability .
“You’re not a spirit but you seem to have some sort of command over electricity . If I am not wrong the flame pillar from before was your work wasn’t it? With powers like this and that infinite time of yours, I wonder just what are you? You have really piqued my interest…”
Wu Yan connected the dots and he recalled that Tokisaki Kurumi is too hell-bent on acquiring him, that and her words finally clicked .
Tokisaki Kurumi wants his immortality, or rather, his infinite time .
“Well, I couldn’t care how this ends since you will be mine one way or the other . I am so hyped right now!”
Tokisaki Kurumi pointed the musket at Wu Yan’s forehead and she pulled the trigger without any hesitation . Drops of blood fell to the ground .
Tokisaki Kurumi examined her work .
“To dodge at such distance…”
She turned around and saw Wu Yan who is panting slightly .
“Damn . ”
He wiped away the blood on his head . Gnashing his teeth at her, he continued .
“What a troublesome power, to manipulate time, even a simple acceleration is enough to draw blood from me . I imagine if she used her other abilities, I would be in grave danger . I wonder just how Kotori beat this freak in the original work . ”
“That won’t do, Nii-san…”
Tokisaki Kurumi started approaching him while her eyes shined bright like those of a demon .
“I already told you, rejection is not an option…”
A dark circle started spreading from underneath Tokisaki Kurumi’s feet . Wu Yan felt something draining from him, looking down, he saw that he’s stepping on the dark shadowy area as well .
Wu Yan turned grim .
“The city of devouring time?”
“Oh dear oh my it would seem this is the end . I found a fleeting moment of fun and oh, how fleeting it is . What a shame, what a shame . ”
She lowered her head in disappointment . She raised her face and she revealed an expression of utmost joy .
“However, if that means becoming one with you, it’s all worth it!”
Wu Yan pursed his lips at her slightly twisted words . He sent a torrent of lightning into the ground and he targeted her with this move . Tokisaki Kurumi revealed a troubled look and she hurriedly shot herself with bullet one and she dodged it by speeding away from the attack .
Since she disappeared from where she stood, the time-consuming domain disappeared as well . Wu Yan relaxed a bit . Even if he had infinite time, it’s hard to say whether or not Tokisaki Kurumi will straight-up swallow him with the skill . He’s not even sure if his True Ancestor can last through the ordeal, or worse, stay in a hellish eternal life where he continuously gets his vitality drained from him .
A large clock appeared behind her and dark aura streamed forth from the eighth digit .
“Eighth bullet, Het!”
A shadowy figure jutted out from the dark domain beneath her, it’s not the city of devouring time .
Pale arms appeared with ghoulish red glow . It’s like the dead are rising from their graves . Clones of Tokisaki Kurumi crawled out from the dark domain and they all grinned at Wu Yan in their usual creepy manner .
The eighth bullet grants her the ability create clones of herself or her past selves and materialize them .
Wu Yan bitterly laughed .
“You’ve got to be shitting me, this is cheating…”
Tokisaki Kurumi actually looked like she felt guilty . However, she put her index finger at her chin while saying something Wu Yan can’t ignore .
“I am not letting you escape, you’re mine!”
“Seventh bullet, Zayin!”
The seventh digit on the clock lit up and dark aura poured into her guns .
He dodged the seventh bullet in a panicky manner . The seventh bullet had the ability to stop time on a target or subject which would render him immobile . If he got hit by that he wouldn’t be able to do anything but get devoured by Tokisaki Kurumi’s city of devouring time .
“First bullet, Aleph!”
Tokisaki Kurumi sped up and she appeared in front of Wu Yan almost like she had teleported . While he is still preoccupied, she pointed her gun at his forehead .
“Seventh bullet, Zayin!”
His golden eyes shrunk when he saw how close she is, he could make out the details of her creepy grin at this distance .
