Another World Lls Book 1 Chapter 124

Volume 1 Chapter 124 Why Do My Hands Itch?


(Arthur's pov.)

(Several weeks later.)

Ufff...

It has been a few weeks since I did my tests and right now I am training a couple of manuals that Leonor gave me.

Although they are not body cultivation manuals, she is still looking for the ideal manuals for me. But after seeing my test performance, she immediately gave me these two manuals.

The first of them and the one I'm trained now is... Cursed body.

[Cursed body.

The cultivator who cultivates this manual will be able to turn his body into a source of curses, which will spread through physical contact.

This technique has 10 levels.

Level 1: The user can store a curse of low rank in his body, which can spread by physical contact.

Level 2: The user can spread the curses stored through weapons and armor.

Level 3: The user is now able to store two additional curses.

Level 4: The user can store curses of medium rank.

Level 5: The user can store five additional courses, in addition to being able to issue an aura with a meter in diameter that propagates the low-ranking curses.

Level 6:…]

The rest of the levels are improvements to the previous ones...

According to Leonor's words… 'Fighting with me is as annoying as kicking stones with bare feet'...

That's why he gave me this technique, which will help me wear my enemies faster...

If I had this technique when I struggled with Sophi for the first time, it wouldn't have taken almost three hours to tire her until she passed out...

Oh... Speaking of Sophi, she is currently punished by Leonor...

After our conversation, she realized her mistake, but still, Sophi crossed the line.

One thing is that as long as we fought an accident happened, which is what Leonor meant when I told her about my pseudo immortality.

But Sophi tried to kill me directly, so Leonor punished her for three months of cultivation in seclusion...

Sophi hates me so much right now...

Ufff...

Let's return to the topic of manuals.

The other manual that Leonor gave me, is one of the most important manuals of the pride faction, is called... Immortal will.

This manual is much more abstract, so its description is not as detailed as the previous one.

[Immortal will.

Those who practice this technique will be able to stay alive through any difficulty or tribulation. As long as you maintain your willingness not to give up, even the heavens or the hells cannot kill you.]

"..."

A fairly short description...

After asking Leonor for a more detailed explanation, she told me more or less what this technique does...

"This technique means that as long as you have the will to live and keep fighting, you will be able to do it...

After studying the few who succeeded in cultivating this technique, it was shown that apart from a slight regeneration, which increased in speed, each time the mastery of this technique deepened...

It also strengthened the union of the soul and the body, so even if you receive lethal damage, such as destroying your heart, your soul would be able to continue controlling your body as if it were a puppet...

Once there was someone who fought three hours without ahead... In the end, he lost the battle, because although his soul could control his body, the brain is an important part when it comes to fighting... If he, the soul can only fight instinctively...

Unless you are a soul cultivator, of course.

But in the end, if they killed you in one fell swoop, you would die the same... So although this technique is impressive, it doesn't work miracles…

That's why we just let the 'resistant' cultivators practice this technique, as it would be a waste of effort in any other case. "Leonor said at the time...

She tries to turn me into some kind of immortal c.o.c.kroach since it will make it very difficult for me to be killed... And if by chance they succeed, I will resurrect... So I will be the despair of my enemies.

All this reminds me, in the end, I managed to solve the problem of my soul.

I tentatively asked the grimoire shop if I could merge some of the similar skills, and to my surprise, I received an affirmative answer.

So with the cost of an A ++ reward and a lot of points, I merged all my skills related to crafts and received an inherent skill called 'Universal Talent (Craft Professions)'.

And when I went to see this skill in my 'soul space' I was surprised that it looked almost the same as the other important skills…

To explain this in more detail, the more normal or less powerful skills, like most of the talents I possessed before... Their representation in my soul space looked like a set of super complicated runes, which were white or gray and they were not very large compared to other skills.

The most powerful skills, such as the skill [Commerce] or [Corresponding loyalty], are different... They are gigantic constructions of runes of a golden color... One-third of my soul space, these two skills occupy...

Other powerful skills, but not so much tend to be a smaller size and a silver color...

And what surprised me, was that this new skill that I received from the merger was silver in color with slight traces of golden color...

Leaving the skills aside, in the end, I only managed to free about a third of space in my soul, so I can not buy more skills if I want to start cultivating my soul...

When my soul grows, I will think about whether I buy some new skill...

Moreover, these weeks I have already begun my cultivation of the soul... Well, not really...

Cultivation of the soul is very complicated, and you have to be very careful since it is easy to receive an injury to the soul if the soul cultivation technique is not well executed.

So during these weeks, I have been getting acquainted with my soul and establishing my foundation in regards to my future soul cultivation...

Ufff...

I feel a bit lonely…

This is because most of my beasts have gone on missions...

It is not that I have been ordered to do so, but they have decided to leave on their own...

Bloody wanted to buy from the grimoire shop, the highest-ranking vampire blood... Although she is an 'ancestral vampire' or something like that... She is still a simple vampire at the end...

So she wants to buy blood from a higher-ranking vampire... Something like blood from a vampire count or viscount... But of course, it has to be an ancestral vampire, so the price is quite high...

So she, not to be a burden, decided to go to collect points and achievements.

Whitey also went out on his own...

Whitey is in... Puberty? I'm not sure... Since he absorbed my lineage and evolved, it seems he feels a little lost in life... When he's not training with Bloody or the others, he sits in his 'territory' in my grimoire world and stands to think…

I don't know what's wrong with him, but I hope this trip will help him find his way and get out of that state of apparent loneliness...

Hestia and Medea went on missions together too, as they wanted to practice and experience battles. Since the Ki they acquired merged with their energies, they have not experimented with the possible changes in their energies... And seeing that some of them were leaving, they decided to leave as well.

The rest stayed in the grimoire world, but almost everyone is very busy... Arachne practically manages my grimoire world and everything in it... Since over the years we build farms and ranches, so someone has to take care that everything works well... And who better than someone who can do multitasking at your level…

Elvara and Elanna are also busy with their things, whether taking care of spiritual or normal crops, in addition to taking care of my new infant beasts...

That is something else... In the end, I will have to give them a name... But I have no f.u.c.k.i.n.g idea what names to give them...

My little seraph, I don't know if I call her Angela or Angie... I know it's not original, but I'm not able to think about anything else... I'll wait to see if inspiration or something comes...

And to the kitten, who in the end turned out to be a 'she'... I swear it was not on purpose, it was a coincidence... I have long since given up the harem route... Since with my skill [Commerce] I don't need the little boost it provides love so that my beasts reach greater heights...

Also, I still find it strange to think that I could end up in a relationship... s.e.x.u.a.l with any of them... Until recently I treated them like pets... and although suddenly they become human women, it still seems weird...

Ufff...

Returning to the theme of the kitten... I have no idea how to call her... Maybe I call her as the god or goddess who is a black panther of marvel... What was her name...

ARRGGG

I don't remember, but if I remember, maybe I'll call her that.

Ufff...

It is better that I concentrate on training the technique of cursed body since I have not even reached the first level yet.

...

(One month and a few weeks later.)

"Arthur. How is your training going? Remember that in three days the ascension challenges will take place and although I am not worried that you will lose, I am worried that you will forget and lose by not presenting you with the battle... "Leonor said.

She came to see how I was doing in my training of the new manuals.

"Ok, don't worry, I will remember (Actually Arachne is the one who has my agenda.)... Since you're here... Have you already selected some cultivation manuals for me?" Ask, since I've been waiting for just over two months for her to hand me the manuals for my cultivation.

"Errr... Not yet, it is difficult to find a set of manuals that when combined do not produce 'weaknesses'... And I do not want to give you low-quality manuals... So with the help of some friends, we are still looking for a good set...

Ufff... When you asked me that your manuals not have weaknesses... I thought you were pretty bland, but now that I have realized that it is not a simple task... "She said, discovering that my request was not as silly as it seemed...

As she has been telling me during these two months, she and her friends were surprised to see the weaknesses of several of the sets of manuals that her disciples and themselves cultivated. So she and her fellow elders warned her disciples of their 'weaknesses' and asked them to be careful.

As they are small defects, they can be fixed with specific artifacts to compensate them, but even so, it is an exploitable defect so it is not pleasant...

That is why they have dedicated themselves to looking for a set of manuals that do not provide weaknesses since they hope to establish it as the base crop of the next generation of disciples.

After talking with Leonor for a while, I went back to my practice...

While I continue practicing, I will talk about what happened during this month...

First... Oh, Nimbus has already achieved his divine lightning element... In the end, after being hurt and losing enough mass, so send Nimbus to the grimoire world to rest and grow…

After a month and a half, Nimbus reached several kilometers in diameter, so it is estimated that Nimbus would be able to support the process of evolution of the seed of the divine element. Luckily, I was right.

Now Nimbus can attack with lightning... Although its lightning is normal, so it is those white lightning with a bit of light blue...

I asked Nimbus, but at the moment Nimbus did not want to add additional attributes... For wanting to, Nimbus did not even want the resources needed to raise his divine element to rank 2...

I think that Nimbus wants to nurture it for himself... Personally, I think that Nimbus is treating the divine lightning element as if he were his son... Since technically the divine element was born in Nimbus...

Would that make Nimbus a mother?

I think I'm going to continue treating him like a 'he' until proven otherwise...

Bloody and the others who went on a trip seem to be doing well since from time to time I see that my achievements and points increase. Nor have I received news that none were seriously injured or anything, so I think they are fine...

Now let's talk about our new additions...

They are growing well... The little kitten has already grown to the size of a small panther... her black fur is very bright and beautiful... Elanna has spoiled her a lot since the kitten has grown a little chubby...

Ufff... When the kitten grows a little more, I will take her to train.

As for our little angel... It has not grown much... So she is still a loli... If she has a growth rate equal to humans, it may take 5 to 10 years to grow... Or she may grow longer fast if it increases its range... Ufff... I don't know.

Oh... Speaking of those two, I already turned them into guardian beasts, but I still didn't buy them any improvement... Since right now I'm quite busy and I don't have time to train them, so I let them develop at their own pace for now.

And the dragon egg... Well, it's still in the hole... When Bloody left, the development speed of the egg has slowed down a lot, but it was normal... Besides that, I haven't been filling the pool with blood since, without Bloody, 70 % of the blood would be wasted... So I spend wasting so much blood and prefer to wait.

And last but not least... I managed to reach the first level of the cursed body...

To reach the second level I still have some time left, but once I reach the first level... Notice the difference...

As a first curse, Leonor advised me to store a simple curse of wear.

This curse is that when the 'cursed' energy comes into contact with anything… this cursed energy affects the energy with which it comes into contact, either: Corroding the energy, wasting the energy, burning it, etc. Whatever you want to call it.

This curse makes my opponents lose energy more quickly... Although I also lose some energy by sending this cursed energy to my opponent, since the efficiency is quite good, I win... Let's say that for a unit of energy cursed that I expense, my opponent loses five units of energy.

It is a pity that I have not managed to reach level two of this technique, which would allow me to apply this curse to my weapons...

Oh... Now that I think about it...

Shit!

I don't have decent weapons or armor...

I broke them all during my travels...

Okay…

I guess it's time to fight the Dragon Ball style... I mean, without weapons or armor...

(Three days later.)

"Arthur... Where are your weapons and armor?" Leonor said with a frown.

"Err... Broken, but don't worry, I don't need them..."

*Punch.*

"Auch..." I complained about the punch in the head Leonor gave me.

"What did I tell you about underestimating your opponents? Ufff... It doesn't matter, it's too late to go buy a new set of armor... Let's go... Seriously... How do you lose... You'll find out what the pain is. "Leonor said, with a menacing look in his eyes...

After some more threats, we went to where the fighting takes place.

Seriously... This woman takes her honor too seriously... Well, it wouldn't be the pride faction if it were different.

...

Shortly after we arrived at a gigantic square, with several fighting arenas in them, besides that almost all the disciples of the pride faction are here.

I guess the majority will be spectators... Because if everyone wants to participate, we will throw ourselves a week here.

"Arthur, as a new addition to the central disciples, you have an arena reserved for you to accept challenges. So all you have to do is go to the arena... number three and wait there to be challenged...

Oh, and they can only challenge you 10 times, with certain conditions... first, you have the right to recover in almost full form and the judges will provide the medications. Second, no one with a lower rank, whom you find defeated, can challenge you. Third…"

Leonor said, explaining the rules. Although apart from the first two, the others are obvious... Do not kill, do not listen if it is not necessary, etc.

Going to my assigned arena, I realize that my arena is more public than the others... It seems that Leonor was right, it seems that I will receive many challenges...

"Are you Elder Leonor's disciple? Arthur if I'm not mistaken... Right? "I ask the referee as soon as I enter the arena.

"Yes," I said simply while showing him proof of my identity... Although the simple fact that I came along with Leonor, it should be proof enough... But I understand that the man is doing his job.

Upon confirming my identity, the referee introduced me and proclaimed the challenges could begin.

And instantly, it seemed that all the disciples wanted to carry the ring to challenge me, but there was one that was the fastest...

"I Mob1 challenged you." A random disciple said... (I think of a name for someone who will appear only once.)

We'll see…

"..."

Seriously? A mere cultivator of level 8...

It has not even reached the innate level...

This is a joke... right?

A touch of anger goes through my mint for a moment, until I calm down...

It's true, in my current state, people don't know how to detect my crop...

They are only able to detect that there is some kind of energy in my body, but they are not able to measure my strength...

"I agree..."

God, it makes me want to break all his limbs, seeing his arrogant face... But, I better calm down...

As soon as the referee signaled the start of the fight, a lightning bolt arose from my body and scorched the bastard...

Luckily for him, I used Nimbus's lightning and not mine, since the bastard would end up ashes if he used my divine lightning of rank 2...

The bastard fell back while he smoked almost his entire body...

"The winner is Arthur." The referee announced, and in what looked like a kind of screen the number '839' appeared.

After asking the referee what that number was, he explained that it was the rank of external disciple that Mob1 possessed, therefore no one with a number greater than or equal to that number can challenge me.

Surprisingly, the surrounding disciples did not pounce on the sand as before, but many were changing their armor and shields...

A slight glance at one of the many shields, and I could glimpse some runes of lightning resistance...

Oh... So the first was fodder to get information from me.

Shortly after, one of the spectators was faster than the others, climbed onto the platform.

This guy was faster because he simply pulled out a shield with basic elemental resistance and rushed into the sand.

Hum... Rank 2 innate.

The thing is improving, but it is still too weak to be interesting...

"Me Mob2 challenged you." I shout with enthusiasm, my new challenger...

"I agree."

As soon as I started the fight, my opponent protected himself behind his shield and charged in my direction...

BAMM

BOOM

"..." Referee...

"..." Crowd...

This was another quick fight since I directly kicked the shield with which my opponent covered himself, ending up pushing the latter out of the arena...

The shield ended with the mark of my shoe carved in its center...

"The winner is Arthur." The referee announced and the number that represents the range limit allowed to challenge me changed to '513'.

This is going to take a long time…

...

Surprisingly, after my fifth victory, the challenges stopped for a few minutes…

Oh, and the ranks of my rivals were: '399', '153' and '41'.

All these opponents were to evaluate my level of strength and techniques... But the truth is that apart from the lightning that I launched in my first fight, I defeated the others with a few blows... They are quite weak, the strongest was only in rank 3 innate...

I am surprised that from range 513 to 41, there is only one level of cultivation of difference... But it was noted that the latter was stronger than the previous one, whether in cultivation, techniques or battle experience.

At first, I thought that the last five challenges available would be reserved for the ranks from 1 to 5, but I don't think that's the case...

Since I have seen that the disciples with the ranks from 1 to 8 have already won their respective matches in other arenas… I guess not everyone goes for the 'weak'…

I guess they will challenge me as the 'strongest' left.

After a while, the next challenger appeared and because of the whispers I am listening to, this disciple seems to be in the 15th position in the rankings...

This guy has a culture of rank 5 innate... Not bad.

"I am Mob3, and I have to say that your luck is over, by having me as your opponent... Blah, blah, blah..." Mob3 said, at the beginning of his arrogant presentation speech... which was basically to describe how strong he was, as I should give up and many other nonsense.

"..." Arthur.

Seeing that I had nothing to say, the referee started the fight.

With a shout, my opponent began to swell like a balloon... Oh, this guy can transform like me.

A few seconds later...

I retract my words...

This is disgusting…

This guy was transformed into some kind of mini giant of about five meters, but... It is as if one of the titans of 'Attack on the Titans' became one of those bodybuilders with disproportionate muscles... In general... It is not a sight nice…

"Hahaha… Silly, you shouldn't have let me activate my titan lineage, now you're more than dead. Hahaha… "I shout the deformed abomination, with apparent madness…

And with his apparent newly found madness, he charged towards me intending to hit me with one of his arms with disproportionate muscles...

BOOOM!

'It's too slow...' I thought while dodging his attack…

Every time I look at this muscular abomination, I can't stop thinking that there is something wrong with his lineage... It may be because the purity of his lineage is very low, which would explain that different parts of his body will transform into different levels... I don't know, but it's unpleasant to see...

While listening to the abomination complain about how I was a coward who only knew how to run away, I thought of several ways to defeat him, but it did not occur to me how to defeat him and look great... So I'll go easy.

Seeing that the abomination recharges against me, I stopped facing him, with the clear intention of facing him.

Thinking that I had fallen into his provocations, the abomination smiled madly and struck me with his arm over muscle...

And as if I were an expert aikido practitioner, I quickly grabbed his arm and threw him out of the arena using out of his strength.

Although I have not learned aikido in my previous life... Once your physical abilities reach a certain level, using this type of simple technique is easy.

With a loud 'BOOOM', the muscular guy landed on his back outside the arena...

What a face... Between the inherent madness that 'titan' seems to have in this way and the confusion, it seems to be experiencing... His face is twisted into something strange...

"The winner is Arthur." And with the referee's words, the low range limit to '15'.

(An hour and a half later...)

Ufff... The battles are finally over.

They have not been so much... Although those who challenged me in the end, did not reach the top ten in the rankings, but the truth is that I expected more from them...

I guess the really strong ones will be the central disciples, so it is normal for me to get bored a little fighting external disciples.

"Very well done Arthur. You have not embarrassed me, although you could have looked a little more... But hey... Being reserved with your strength is also fine. "Leonor said as I approached.

It's not that I didn't try to look good... But since my opponents were so weak, I was afraid of hitting them too hard... So I didn't launch powerful attacks, and I'm very embarrassed to act flashy with so many people watching...

...

After returning to Leonor's Mountain, I decided to take a break for the rest of the day, since it was a bit late to start with my training regimen.

After some thought, I decided to study some rune books of rank 2, since one of these days I have to replace my equipment...

What memories... I still remember when I had several storage rings full of weapons and armor... I still have them, but half of those rings are half empty and the other half has only very low-level things... If I or Hestia we would end up breaking after using them a couple of times...

I should ask Leonor if she can help me sell them. Since although they are weapons and armor of low rank, they are high-quality equipment, so for the external disciples it should be quite good things.

...

"What if I know of a place where you can practice very destructive skills?" Leonor asked my question if I knew where I could practice my "destructive" skills.

"Yes, I want to try some things... But I'm afraid I could end up destroying your mountain... Again." I said, speaking very weakly the last part of the sentence, to which she was getting angry remembering how I destroyed her mountain in our previous fight...

"Hmpf... I guess I could take you to the test room for elders... That place was designed so that we can test our skills without having to destroy our surroundings, but I have to ask permission to take you there, so wait a moment while I ask. "Leonor said after calming down…

She took out a communication talisman and started sending messages.

Shortly after a while, it seems she received an answer.

"You are lucky, they have permitted you... It seems that the fact that you destroyed my mountain has leaked, so they have decided that it would be a shame if you did it again." She said with a somewhat dark expression...

After this awkward conversation, Leonor took me to this testing room.

"Here is the testing room, I will come to pick you up at the end of the day, have fun until then." Leonor said before leaving me in front of what looks like a cave in a mountain...

After Leonor left, I entered the cave, shortly after entering I found a door, which seemed to be made of white stone.

When I open the white door and go through it, I see that it leads to a large white room, it is as large as several football fields. If I didn't know it wasn't, I would think that this room looks like it is made of white quartz.

After closing the door upon entering the room, I was able to see flashes of light from here to there... It seems that some kind of defensive arrangement has been activated.

Going to the center of this white room, I prepare for my experiment...

What I want to try is Ki compression.

Since if I simply gather Ki and release it, the power is quite low... Divine lightning would be more powerful.

That's why I want to learn to compress Ki since this is the secret of the powerful Dragon Ball attacks. Apart from attacks that have special characteristics, most attacks on Dragon Ball consist of compressed Ki attacks.

Previously in my Ozaru form, I created a 'bomb' of compressed Ki, but the compression is done by runes... And although the result was very satisfactory, but it is not very efficient... It consumes a lot of energy, so I do not think it is suitable for the battle…

Although I do not rule it out since I could use runes to re-compress, an already compressed Ki sphere... That may result in something good...

Let's try…

I begin to gather Ki in a sphere between my two hands and soon a red ball made of Ki is formed, this is the easy part since with my denser Ki it is easy to manipulate.

Now it's time to inject more Ki into the sphere without increasing its size...

...

Shit!

I can't keep the sphere from expanding...

What used to be a sphere about 15 centimeters in diameter, has now reached 20 centimeters in diameter.

I have to try harder...

...

With much effort, both physical and mental, I can reduce the size of the sphere to about 18 centimeters in diameter...

But I need to apply a lot of pressure to maintain this compression state, even when the compression is minimal... It seems that the higher density of my energy is bothering me now...

After a good time of hard work, I managed to compress the sphere to 15 centimeters in diameter again.

Ufff...

But…

Just when I lowered my guard a little, for having achieved my goal... Ki's sphere began to shake and exploded...

BOOOOOOM!

...

(An indeterminate time later...)

Ufff...

I open my eyes and see the white ceiling of the test room...

It seems that the explosion knocked me out...

In the process of getting up off the ground, I was going to use my arms to support myself and get up, but suddenly I felt a strong pain...

Looking at my arms...

I am only able to see two bloody stumps...

"AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGG!"

And that's how I lost both my hands...
