Game of Apocalypse - Chapter 37
Chapter 37 Clearing Black Death Society’s HQ
Since Odin had just learned the ice skill and hadn’t had any time to practice with the fourth and fifth skills, it would consume more spirit energy to use a stronger skill. And this is bad for Odin’s physical body. So, he intended just to use the first three skills to kill all of them.
However, unbeknownst to him, there was a cumbersome Plague Corpse. Judging from Adolf’s proficiency in using his skills, it was visible he wasn’t an ordinary Plague Corpse. It was certain that Adolf’s prowess was great and if Odin didn’t use his full strength, things might go awry.
According to the description of the Level 4 skill, Arrival of Winter, provided by the system, it seemed to be a crowd control skill that could restrict the physical body’s movement.
Predicting Adolf’s dashing trajectory, Odin unleashed Arrival of Winter on Adolf’s endpoint. When Adolf reached the skill’s area, it activated, freezing the entirety of Adolf.
In this way, Adolf temporarily lost his mobility.
This crowd control skill was strong but it had a strict requirement from the caster. Due to the skill’s delay and distance range, one must predict the enemy’s next location to make sure they would enter one’s attack range.
If mispredicted, it wouldn’t freeze the enemy. And due to the skill’s cooldown, by the time the next usage arrived, one might be beaten to death by the enemy.
However, this skill would only last for three seconds. If Odin wanted to kill Adolf, he must do it within these three seconds.
The icicles were too slow and weren’t enough to finish Adolf.
So, before the fourth skill was activated, Odin had used the fifth skill and an Ice Arrow materialized on his palm. The instant Adolf was frozen, Odin, akin to an arrow, rushed at Adolf and beelined the sharp arrow in his hand on Adolf’s neck, leaving a line of blue glow behind.
Odin stopped in front of Eddy in his rushing pose, half-kneeling on the ground but no traces of blood could be observed on the Ice Arrow.
Coincidentally, three seconds passed. Adolf was released from his frozen state. He sized up his entire body and found no wounds before releasing a wild laugh. “Hahahahaha! Is that all? There’s no… Ahhhh! Pfft! Impossible! Imp…” Before Adolf could finish, a thud sound echoed.
“Heh, you think you’re fine?” Odin headed towards Adolf.
A three centimeters gap could be observed on the side of Adolf’s neck, right at the artery. When Odin beelined over, the Ice Arrow had a low temperature. So, Adolf didn’t sense any pain when the Ice Arrow slashed his artery and no blood stuck on it as well.
But, under the gradual increase of the temperature, the wound abruptly ruptured as a large amount of blood gushed out from Adolf’s neck. The blood painted the walls of the hallway.
Dark-colored blood was dripping from the wall. Due to the viscosity of the blood, it moved slightly before halting. Patches of dark blood stains formed, making the sight gruesome.
While on Adolf’s body, the black mist was constantly spilling out as its color gradually paled, almost dissipating.
“This… Cough! Cough! How is this possible?!” A final breath still remained within Adolf. His bloodshot eyes widened and filled with hatred, unable to believe the sight before him.
“Heh.” Odin trudged over and kicked Adolf’s leg while sneering wordlessly. He squatted down, watching Adolf’s last breath escaping before eventually stopping breathing. Adolf, in the end, died with his eyes and mouth widened in the hallway.
“You! What are you?!” Eddy, who was still laying by the staircase, slowly crawled back while fearingly staring at Odin.
Unbeknownst to him, Odin was capable of killing Adolf. He believed Adolf was their final line of defense but he didn’t anticipate Odin’s strength had reached this stage.
There were around four people in the HQ. If Adolf failed to kill him, then everyone in the HQ was powerless against Odin.
“I’m the Odin you guys wanted to kill, what else can I be?” Odin mocked while slowly moving towards Eddy.
“Why? Why aren’t you killing me? Wasn’t killing me an easy feat? Don’t you want to kill me and present me to your higher-ups for the reward? I’m standing in front of you right now, why don’t you get up and kill me?!” Odin’s voice was increasingly getting louder as his expression turned even more vicious as if venting the stress he had accumulated during the period of being hunted by the Black Death Society.
This bunch of people took the liberty of using others’ lives as vessels. Robbing others’ lives without permission. With what right?! Odin glared at Eddy with his reddened eyes.
The expression on Odin’s face caused fear within Eddy. As Odin trudged over, Eddy kept backing up. Fear on Eddy’s face intensified as though the person before him was a Shura.
If it wasn’t for the heavy injuries from the previous fight which caused Eddy unable to stand up, he would immediately flee with his tail tucked between his legs, unwilling to spend even a single second with Odin.
Materializing dozens of icicles midair, Odin picked one of the icicles with the best-looking shape. He grabbed that icicle while the others slowly vanished.
Slowly, he walked in front of Eddy, stomping on one of Eddy’s legs to stop Eddy from retreating. With the icicle in his hand, he slashed it down heartlessly before Eddy stopped breathing.
Eddy died with his eyes wide open. Unlike Adolf’s reluctance, fears filled Eddy’s eyes as his pupils shrank.
Kicking Eddy away, Odin knew there was someone else who remained in the HQ, probably a Spirit Warlock too. During the fight with Adolf just now, he perceived an abnormal fluctuation of spirit energy but it concealed its presence instantly.
Perhaps, the owner saw Odin’s fight with Adolf and felt fear, not daring to appear. So, he chose to hide instead.
Since that person wasn’t coming out, Odin would search for him. Today, he would clear out the whole HQ, telling the Black Death Society that he wasn’t to be messed with!
All of a sudden, a ‘Clack’ echoed from a room at the end of the hallway, attracting Odin’s attention.
