Wu Yan trembled when he felt a surge of power within him . An invisible shockwave was emitted from Wu Yan’s body . It shook the air around him .
Crack crack crack
He could hear something cracking within him . It’s not a hallucination, the sound got louder and louder until it became loud thuds, he is also trembling and seizing up like he’s diseased .
“What’s going on?”
He is starting to panic, this isn’t a normal level up .
“I never heard about this, is this what happens when one turns into a tier 8 individual? Is this similar to how Mikoto got clad in lightning when she hit tier 8?”
He can feel his insides churning from an unknown force, he cannot consciously suppress this feeling .
He’s itching all over but he can’t do anything other than hugging himself . He squatted down while hovering in the air . His veins are starting to bulge at his temples, this is something he hadn’t felt before .
“Wh-what’s going on?…”
Gnashing his teeth, he endured the sensation as much as his mind allowed him to . He noticed that his skin is unusually flushed . However, the itching sensation overwhelmed his curiosity .
Unknown to him, his blood pressure is so elevated a normal human would have died from massive internal hemorrhage . His blood vessels swelled so abnormally large that it can be visually seen on his face . He looked like he’s going to turn into a werewolf minus the fur .
His blood pressure showed no signs of going down, the itching sensation increased proportionally with the increase in his blood pressure . He arched his back and he raised his head, flexing every muscle in his body if it means drawing away a bit of blood from his blood vessels .
Like a dying beast, Wu Yan wailed . His roar shook the air around him, his blood vessels throbbed and invisible forces rippled out from them which were absorbed by his muscles and organs .
His skin slowly returned to their usual flush, his blood vessels and capillaries also returned to normal . Soon, his blood pressure returned to their normal levels as if nothing happened .
The system notified its owner of changes to his body .
“User satisfied the requirement for True Ancestor Bloodline, awakened Ancestor Bloodline . ”
“User has unlocked the bloodline ability ‘Red Jewel’ . ”
Wu Yan who had just returned from the wildest trip of his life was surprised by this sudden news .
“Ancestor bloodline? A bloodline ability?”
Wu Yan’s golden iris returned to their usual blood-red color but he’s still pretty confused .
“Wh-what’s going on here?”
He’s very puzzled by what happened to him as he is still piecing together the puzzle .
“User failed to satisfy the level requirements to unlock the true powers of an Ancestor so the Ancestor Bloodline and its abilities remained dormant in the user . The user had been using only the passive characteristic of being immortal . ”
“The Ancestor Bloodline remained dormant until the user has reached a sufficiently high enough level it . ”
Wu Yan asked .
“You’re telling me that I needed to reach this level before I can start wielding the true powers of a True Ancestor?”
In other words, Wu Yan was too weak to utilize the abilities of a True Ancestor .
Wu Yan isn’t mad, quite the contrary .
Finally, he’s closer to being a True Ancestor, with his bloodline ability awakened, his arsenal increased . He felt like his physical capabilities had been multiplied and his regenerative powers reached newer heights .
It’s like he’s been reborn with greater powers, this excluded the increase in power after reaching tier 8 . Plus, he got a bloodline ability out of this .
Red Jewel (Unique ability of Ancestor bloodline, can’t be bought in the shop):
Turn an organism’s blood into a Red Jewel, these jewels can be stored in the user . When used, it allows the user to temporarily exhibit the strengths and abilities of the individual from whom the blood was used to form the Red Jewel . If the individual is stronger than the user, the Red Jewel will allow the user to temporarily exceed level limitations albeit with a shortened active duration . The larger the power difference the shorter the active duration of Red Jewel . If the user is stronger than the individual the active duration will become longer . The cooldown period is 24 hours . The maximum amount of Red Jewel that can remain in storage is 3, unwanted red jewels can be discarded .
Wu Yan’s mouth widened into an ‘O’ shape .
“So I can become as strong as the owner of the blood? If I used Flandre’s blood…”
Wu Yan gulped, his heart started racing . He read the explanation over and over to make sure he didn’t misread it .
“I am not dreaming am I?”
Wu Yan pinched himself, the pain signaled that this is all real .
“This is so broken…”
Wu Yan’s expression started twisting in joy, his slightly more handsome face turned ugly but he didn’t care . He started trembling in excitement .
How can he remain calm? This ability allowed him to become as strong as the owner of the blood for a brief amount of time .
This meant that if he returned to Silvaria and took some blood from Flandre, he can mimic Flandre’s power and abilities . Using this jewel, he can temporarily fight as a tier 9 individual, with the terrifying power of destruction in tow .
