Game of Apocalypse - Chapter 43
Chapter 43 Being Monitored
However, something was wrong with this matter. According to the Black Death Society’s usual method, they wouldn’t remain in the shadows to observe him. Instead, they would straight away come for Odin.
After all, their target was Odin’s life for Crow God’s vessel. There wasn’t any reason for them to sneak around in the shadows and monitor without taking any action.
The current surveillance method was completely different from their initial intention.
Then, was another organization keeping an eye on him? Odin paused a moment before continuing walking as though nothing happened. Although he sensed someone was monitoring him, he couldn’t express it. Before making sure who was monitoring him, he shouldn’t make any rash moves. Playing dumb was the best way.
To unearth the other party’s identity, he needed to probe for it. It wasn’t Odin’s personality to be a sitting duck. But being able to monitor someone in broad daylight, it was evident their authority was substantial.
For some unknown reason, the Father’s face, where Odin first met at the Church of Death God, suddenly emerged in his mind.
Recalling that face, cold sweat began soaking Odin’s back. The fear he experienced at that time was carved into his bones. It was akin to one’s heart grasped by neverending darkness. Odin didn’t wish to experience it again.
The current order of business was to find out which party was monitoring him. Once knowing this, the following countermeasures could be planned.
Right now, Odin was hoping that the Black Death Society was the one causing trouble since their force was unrecognized in this world. If it was the Church of Death God instead, they were more troublesome than the Black Death Society. Moreover, it was difficult for him to get rid of the church’s control.
Regardless, those people were remaining in the shadows and weren’t aware Odin already discovered them. This provided opportunities for him to slowly figure out their intentions.
Feigning ignorance, Odin went to the classroom as per the usual route. As he expected, the moment he stepped into the classroom, all of the gazes on him disappeared.
When school ended at noon, Odin went to the cafeteria first. Then, he went to the library before heading to the vendor stall next to the library, buying a bottle of water.
Such a trip wasn’t his usual trip. Never once did he tell anyone he was going to the library at noon. During noon too, the library would be shut for an hour and there wouldn’t be anyone visiting it.
But throughout the entire time, the monitoring gaze didn’t even leave his body even once. No matter where he went, except for classrooms, he was able to sense someone was staring at him.
From this, it was absolutely certain that someone was monitoring him and it wasn’t a coincidence at all.
Besides, Odin also further deduced that this party was the Black Death Society. The reason being this party was monitoring him to observe his daily life, not aiming for his life.
This party was trying to figure out Odin’s daily movement and behavior.
“Are there any abnormalities?” Father, in the hall, was still holding the golden goblet.
“No. It’s similar to other students’ school life and he didn’t go to any unusual places. After the class ends, he is either gone to eat or returned to his dorm.” The person who was sent to monitor Odin reported truthfully.
“Continue to follow, make sure not to lose him.” Drinking a mouthful of wine from the goblet, Father revealed a satisfied expression. However, his gaze still remained cold.
“Yes.” After saying that, the man gradually left.
The next day, Odin deliberately searched for a classmate to accompany him. Along the journey, he was chatting happily, but in reality, his eyes were aiming at the direction of the gaze.
However, he wasn’t able to see anything. Despite being able to feel the gaze piercing the air with his strong mental strength, he wasn’t able to locate the other party. This
“Do you know the Church of Death God?” Odin purposely leaned his head, asking the boy next to him.
“Why the sudden question?” The boy stopped his previous conversation and looked at Odin confusedly. Is there anyone who doesn’t know the Church of Death God? It was one of the six great churches. He felt Odin was asking a stupid question.
“I encountered some slight trouble recently. I heard the Church of Death God can provide me with some help. Do you know where the church is located?” Odin’s voice was neither loud nor soft, but it was enough for nearby people to hear it. Additionally, he slowed down his speaking, making sure he uttered every word clearly.
This, of course, was done for the spy. He was attempting to use this method to confirm which side that party came from.
As imagined, the moment he spoke those words, two of the surrounding gazes on him was gone. Odin was able to keenly sense the pressure from the gazes lessened. They probably heard some useful messages and reported back immediately.
Odin lowered his head in contemplation. Whatever the friend next to him said, he replied perfunctorily as if he was listening.
From the reaction of those spies just now, during the time they were following Odin, whenever he mentioned the Church of Death God, some of the gazes vanished. Odin was certain those who monitored him came from the church.
The worse thing was that they came from the church, then wasn’t Father, who Odin met last time, ordered them to monitor him?
Thinking about this, beads of cold sweat began forming on his body.
If it was the Black Death Society, he still had ways to counterattack. But if it was the Church of Death God instead…
Odin furrowed his brows deep. In fact, he had been monitored before, but during that time, he was still a powerless bum. After being monitored for a while, the spies ignored him after seeing he was harmless.
Except, the current situation was different. His present strength had an enormous increment. Although the church was still unaware of it, the fact his strength grew would be found out eventually.
If it truly was the church monitoring him, then he was facing a huge problem. Odin stared ahead of him while his eyes were filled with worries. In the event that they were determined to spy on him, Odin was certain there was no way to escape.
The remaining method was to leave Blue Vine University as soon as possible.
