An enormous shadow descended from above and crashed into the ground, scattering the smashed gravel . Rhode raised his head and stared at the fallen enemy . Judging from its appearance, it resembled a centipede that was magnified a few hundred times . A magical radiance flickered from its green shell . The razor-sharp teeth writhed on both sides of its metallic mouth parts, letting out a series of disturbing cackling . If this was all, perhaps Rhode would have treated it as just an ordinary creature . However, as soon as he witnessed the three magic cannons on it, he instantly threw this thought to the back of his head . The magic armor on this centipede should have belonged to the construct BOSS here . But now, it seemed like they fused and came up with a new ability .
Is this considered the Holy Centipede Knight?
“Lize, Anne, put up your defenses . Beware of your surroundings!”
This was all that he could say because at this moment, Shira had charged forward with her large sword while bursting out in a crazy laughter . Orders weren’t necessary to her . As long as she could kill the enemy, it would be victory . She didn’t care who was the one who killed the enemy, as long as there were corpses and blood .
Shira brandished the sword and slashed the centipede’s metal claws . Sparks flew as she continued to circle the enemy from the side . At the same time, the two magic cannons on the enemy’s head shifted directions and their pitch-black openings aimed at the young lady . Then, dazzling radiance erupted .
Shira had no intention of dodging . She tilted her head and watched as the magic beam got closer . Then, she let out a disturbing laughter and laid her sword before her, deflecting the green magic beam . At the same time, the second wave of attacks began .
Two blinding silver blade rays slashed an ‘X’ in the centipede’s body . Gracier and Madaras emerged out of the shadows and punctured their daggers into the enemy . Dark green blood spurted from the wound and judging from the dense fog surrounding the enemy, it was apparent that this enemy wasn’t that easy to deal with .
Lize chanted under her breath and raised her arms—a radiance shone from above and dispersed the fog around the enemy . Then, a black whip with countless thorns shot out from the shadows on the ground and bound the enemy tightly . At the next second, silver bladed rays illuminated the dark space as Celia brandished her sword in midair .
If it were an ordinary creature, perhaps it would have been completely annihilated by now . But it was apparent that this enemy wasn’t easy to deal with at all . It let out a grueling howl and crumbled like fallen blocks instantly . Shortly after, the gigantic centipede split into hundreds of thousands of smaller centipedes that struck at the visitors .
The ground burned in flames .
The tower blasted a string of blazing fireballs across the sky, splashing a paint of scarlet in the dark clouds . Shortly after, dark lightning bolts blasted from the clouds and stopped the fireballs . At the same time, the enemies brought new reinforcements to the army of Chaos . The hundreds of thousands of strange, twisted-looking enemies fluttered their wings like hungry locusts rushing for food while letting out disturbing buzzes . They soared through the sky and crashed ruthlessly into the tower . On the other hand, the tower erupted blazing flames from the Order rituals and burned the enemies . But the enemies had no intention of stopping . The thick layers of cloud above split up and released countless bugs from within . Their buzzes overwhelmed the sound of explosion, thunder, and rumbling of the ground, leaving the entire battlefield in an unsettling state .
The magic beam that was powerful enough to blast a deep gorge on the ground was useless against tens of thousands of tiny bugs .
Another wave of attack .
A young lady who stood by the edge of the tower hurled a bottle of Molotov cocktail forward . Shortly after, the entire mass of Chaos burned in a dazzling blaze as though flaming flowers were blooming before her . The gleaming colors of gold and red burned the bugs as fuel and a revolting stench exuded, forcing the young lady back by one step . At this moment, a few dozen bugs that survived the flames flew and landed on her face .
The young lady let out a blood-curdling screech . She reached out at her face frantically, but her snowy complexion was corroded by Chaos—it was as if she had been splashed by sulfuric acid . Then, her flesh writhed as though it was self-conscious . The bugs with razor-sharp teeth devoured her flesh and the bloody scent instantly attracted the surrounding Chaos Creatures .
“Ahhhh! No! No!!!”
The desperate, frightened young lady squirmed in the pool of blood as the Chaos Creatures ripped and tore her flesh and organs . She reached out her hand helplessly for her companions, when suddenly a gigantic steel hammer crashed into her skull . Boom! Her skull was instantly smashed into a bloody mess . At this moment, two mercenaries rushed forth and hurled Molotov cocktails at their fallen comrade . The blazing flames formed a solid barrier that kept the Chaos Creatures away .
No one was that naive to think that it had ended . The green vines that crawled around the tower instantly merged to form a defensive web . They released wind blades at the enemies that tried to barge in and shredded them into powder .
Walls of fire and ice emerged around the tower, symbolizing that the battle had entered the next stage .
Christie placed her tiny finger on the page and quietly read despite the screams, explosions, and the sound of thunder . No, it should be said that all clamors were blocked out and almost inaudible from inside the library . She sat on the wooden bench and flipped through the pages one by one . Then, she let out a sigh and closed the book . At this moment, a slender, dewy hand took over the book from her .
There was no one beside her . But now, a young lady in a black dress suddenly appeared . She picked up the book and hugged it in her arms . She smiled and caressed the little girl, to which the latter narrowed her eyes, shook her head, and turned to Bell behind her . At this moment, Bell was staring at the book in her hand .
“Reading is really enjoyable . I’ve never felt tired of reading . ”
“Books are meant for reading, giving knowledge and happiness . It’s great that you like reading . ”
The young lady skillfully arranged the books on the shelf . Then, she shifted her gaze to the floor as though looking through it and observing the battle that was taking place .
“Do you think… we can win this time?”
“Victory is here . We just have to wait quietly . No matter if it’s me or my other half, we both believe in this . ”
‘Christie’s’ tone was steady and full of dignity, unlike in the past . At this moment, her purple pupils glinted as she gazed at the young lady .
“Master will definitely win, no matter if it is in the past, present, or future . As the recorder, aren’t you clearer than anyone about this, Darlaston?”
The young lady didn’t respond . She merely extended her arm and a black, empty hardcover book appeared in her hand .
“I’m just the recorder of history . It is my duty to record everything that happens and not make wild guesses . Since you’re full of anticipation, I shall see if the ending is the same as you expect . ”
