Starting With 3 S-Class Talents - Chapter 621
Ghost King Abraham had not expected the current situation. This weak level 50 creature in front of him had caused the flames in his eye sockets to explode.
Abraham lost all sight as the flames in his eyes continued to spread. He could feel the temperature of the flames wrapped around his head gradually rising. It seemed to have no end as the temperature continued to rise. Sooner or later it was going to reach a temperature that even he could not withstand!
“How dare you sneak attack a king? Today, I will kill you and leave you without a burial ground!”
Abraham raised his hand and held his own body. He roared angrily at Vincent. Although his strength was much higher than Vincent’s, under the circumstances where he could not see, it was inevitable for him to feel fearful.
Vincent looked at Abraham who could not fight back and slowly retreated. He said, “In the domain of fire, I am a god! Any fire will be under my control. I can only say that your body, which is different from the other ghosts, was born to be restrained by me!”
Abraham was no longer flustered at this stage. His body flashed and he rushed forward. He stretched out two sharp fingers that were like white jade and stabbed into Vincent’s chest.
After Abraham succeeded in his attack, he said very proudly, “Your ability is indeed not bad, but you are too naive. Just because you control the flames, do you think you can restrain me? You must know that there is a vast difference between us. Now, I just need to move my fingers, and I can immediately kill you!”
Vincent widened his eyes as he looked at Abraham in disbelief.
This was the first time he had faced Abraham head-on. It made him realize how invincible his opponent was.
He felt like he was unable to resist Abraham. He also felt like he was going to die at any moment. All these feelings made Vincent almost lose his footing. Fortunately, he had managed to calm himself down in time, he stood on the spot without moving.
At the critical moment, Vincent could see that Abraham’s target was his heart. However, he was least afraid of someone attacking his heart. Yet, if he dodged slightly, he would get injured.
Vincent, who had recovered from his shock, sneered, and said, “Then you can try and see if you can kill me!”
As soon as he finished speaking, his Return Journey of the Dead lit up. Endless blade auras pierced through Abraham’s body at a very close distance.
If it was an ordinary opponent, they would have been sliced into countless pieces under Vincent’s attack. However, even though Abraham’s body was pierced by tens of thousands of blades, there was not a single scratch on his body.
Abraham’s head was covered in flames. He mocked Vincent in a deep voice, “The reason why the Ghost Race is known as the Ghost Race is that our bodies can become ethereal at any time. A weak attack like yours can not hurt my foundation!”
When Vincent saw this, his heart was instantly filled with regret. He did not expect the ghost powerhouse to have such a terrifying talent. It had caused him to waste a perfect opportunity to attack.
However, at that moment, a blade with pitch-black magic flames brushed past Vincent’s shoulder and pierced straight into Abraham’s chest.
Although the blade did not cause any substantial damage to Abraham, it contained eternal magic flames. It gradually burned Abraham’s body until it became pitch-black.
Abraham, who could not see, instantly sensed danger. He quickly raised his finger, and jumped backward, distancing himself from Vincent and the magic sword that had suddenly appeared.
Alexia once again stood beside Vincent. She held her magic sword proudly as she whispered to Vincent, “The bodies of ghosts are not affected by ordinary attacks. Only spells or attacks with attributes can hurt their main bodies!”
Vincent nodded slightly. He frowned and asked, “Didn’t I tell you to run away? Why did you come back?”
Alexia’s eyes were cold as she said, “I don’t have the habit of running for my life! Since I have encountered an opponent who took the initiative to attack me, I must defeat the opponent head-on!”
Vincent listened to Alexia’s righteous words and could not help but laugh, “Since you are so bold, then I’ll leave this place to you. I’ll run first!”
Alexia was instantly furious. She turned to Vincent and said, “Can’t you be a little more loyal? Under such a dangerous situation just now, I didn’t leave you behind. Now, you want to run away alone. Is that appropriate?”
Vincent only smiled lightly. He naturally knew why Alexia had decided to turn back. However, as the great battle was about to begin, he also needed to relieve his nervous and depressed mood. That was why he joked with Alexia.
“Alright, since we are going to be loyal to each other, then let’s join forces and see if we can take down this powerful Ghost King!” said Vincent seriously.
He plated his Return Journey of the Dead with a layer of flame. He looked at Abraham with a determined expression.
Alexia rolled her eyes at Vincent.
She then proceeded to raise the magic sword in her hand. She was ready to attack at any time.
Abraham did not pay attention to the conversation between Vincent and Alexia. Instead, he touched his fingers using his other hand in surprise.
Even though he could not see, Abraham was quite confident in his strength. He was certain he had penetrated Vincent’s heart earlier. However, when he retreated, not only did he not hook Vincent’s heart out, he did not even get a single drop of blood on it. This made him feel a little incredulous. That was why he stood where he was and kept pondering.
After seeing Abraham stunned on the spot, Vincent immediately seized the opportunity and said to Alexia, “Do it!”
Alexia did not hesitate at all. She grabbed her sword and swung forward. The pitch-black magic sword and the flaming blade in Vincent’s hand intersected with each other. It was like watching a wonderful pas de deux. They were stabbing at different parts of Abraham’s body at the same time.
Even if the other party could see, it would be difficult for him to withstand such a dazzling attack. Plus this time, the other party was equivalent to a blind man!
However, Abraham’s keen senses had completely exceeded Vincent and Alexia’s expectations. Before they could reach him, Abraham stretched out his hands and grasped both the blades tightly in front of him.
Vincent and Alexia, who were sprinting at full speed, instantly stopped in their tracks. Both of them were surprised to find that they could not advance any further. At the same time, they were unable to retrieve the weapons from Abraham’s hands.
“Ants like you, no matter how many plots and tricks you have, you are still weak. Next, all of you will die!”
Abraham roared in anger. He then pulled the weapons in his hand.
Vincent and Alexia felt a huge force pulling their bodies forward. They could not help but stagger forward.
What was in front of them was Abraham’s bone claw!
Vincent was shocked when he saw this. He knew their differences in strength. Once they fell into Abraham’s control, they would die.
At that moment, Vincent knew that he was only one step away from his death!
As a warrior, Vincent could be said to be fearless of death, but he also had the instinct to protect his teammates. At that moment, Vincent was not worried about himself who was about to meet with misfortune. Instead, he was worried about the safety of Alexia beside him.
Vincent immediately reacted. He used all his strength to raise his leg sideways and directly kicked toward Alexia.
Although Alexia would be seriously injured, she would at least be sent flying. It was enough for her to escape Abraham’s demonic palm.
However, what Vincent did not expect was that Alexia did the same thing as him at the same time. She raised her leg to the side and kicked toward his stomach.
Two muffled sounds rang out almost at the same time. Vincent and Alexia were both sent flying to the sides.
Abraham who was ready to kill the two of them in one blow, could not help but be even more stunned when he realized that he had missed again. He could not understand how the two of them could escape from his attack range in such a short period.
Not far away, Vincent squatted on the ground. His left hand was holding onto the dragon egg whilst he slowly rubbed his stomach using his other hand. He frowned slightly as he looked at Alexia, who was opposite him. He sighed in his heart. This woman’s kick was simply too ruthless.
Before he kicked Alexia, he took into account her endurance first. He only used 50% of his strength to kick her. On the other hand, Vincent felt like Alexia had used 100% of her strength earlier. She almost kicked him down from the top of the mountain!
After seeing Vincent’s unkind gaze, Alexia only smiled slightly. She spread her hands and made a helpless gesture. She then pointed at Abraham, indicating that he had lost his sight. If they kept silent, they would be better at concealing themselves from him.
Vincent naturally knew what Alexia was trying to tell him, so he could only back down for the time being. He then stood up and thought about the next step.
Abraham’s strength was unique in Vincent’s eyes. Even when he had fought against Gajero previously, he had never felt so powerless.
Of course, the difference was probably because he had Justin by his side then.
However, Vincent only had the weak Alexia with him at that moment. When the two of them faced Abraham, not to mention taking the initiative to attack, even protecting themselves became a problem.
Abraham fumbled around on the spot for a while but he could not find any traces of Vincent and Alexia. He spoke with a face full of resentment, “You two juniors are indeed cunning but don’t assume for a second that just because you are silent, I won’t be able to find your positions! When the members of my Ghost Race reach the mountain, the two of you won’t be able to escape even if you have wings!”
Vincent instantly realized that countless ghosts were rushing over with all their might. He then took the initiative to speak, “Today, I will definitely take revenge for Justin. Even if I can’t kill you before the other ghosts rush over, I might still be able to break one of your arms or legs! Moreover, it won’t be so easy for those ghosts under you to charge up the mountain!”
With that, Vincent gently swung the blade in his hand. The flames burning on Abraham’s head instantly spread down the mountain. In the blink of an eye, they formed a line of fire halfway up the mountain. It blocked all the ghosts that wanted to rush up the mountain to help Abraham.
As the Ghost King, the flames that symbolized his eyes were naturally extraordinary. When all the ghosts saw the flames in front of them, they could not help but show shocked and fearful expressions. They could only circle around the mountain as no one dared to cross the line of fire.
That was because they could sense the pressure from their king within the flames. It contained an aura that they did not dare to go against!
For a moment, the top of the rock mountain became the place where Vincent and Alexia would fight to the death with Abraham!
The flames on Abraham’s head had spread halfway up the mountain. The silver-white skeleton had turned into charcoal. It was just that he could not see it himself. Otherwise, he would fall into a rage again.
Moreover, Abraham was not paying attention to his situation at the moment. That was because he had just heard Vincent’s voice and confirmed Vincent’s location. He could not wait to launch an attack.
When Abraham disappeared from his original position again, Vincent immediately shifted two steps to the side to make it look like he was just standing there a moment ago. Abraham’s ten fingers formed a hook, and he suddenly grabbed forward. However, it seemed that he had missed again.
Vincent could not help but continue to sneer, “Sir, you are blind, but you can still maintain such a high speed. I really admire you. But isn’t it too unrealistic for you to catch me?”
Abraham tilted his ears slightly and once again sensed Vincent’s position. He did not say anything more and immediately move forward. He proceeded to launch an attack that was sharper and faster than before.
After getting used to Abraham’s attack style, Vincent moved even more skillfully.
Abraham finally had enough of this hide-and-seek-like battle. At the same time, he was certain that Vincent was still standing on the top of this mountain. He raised his hands high and shouted, “Hundred Ghosts Night Walk!”
As Abraham shouted, dark clouds suddenly appeared in the sky. Many ferocious-looking ghosts climbed out of the clouds and floated on the top of the mountain along with gusts of chilly evil wind. They howled eerily.
More and more ghosts slowly appeared and landed on top of the rock mountain. The entire mountain soon became the wandering area of the ghosts. As long as they came into contact with Alexia and Vincent, they would immediately expose their positions.
However, if Alexia and Vincent chose to dodge, the sounds they made would attract Abraham’s attention. Therefore, it had become a competition of luck and wisdom.
Vincent and Alexia could only hope that they would be struck by the ghosts as late as possible. They had to think of a way to solve the current predicament within this period.
At that moment, the rock mountain was filled with countless ghosts. It was simply impossible for them to escape. They would only be noticed by Abraham if they opened the space door rashly.
Vincent knew that he had to heavily injure Abraham before he could open the space door.
Just as Vincent was deep in thought, he suddenly saw a ghost charging toward Alexia from behind. He was about to collide with her.
In a moment of desperation, Vincent did not have the time to think. He spread out his 12 flaming wings and charged toward Alexia. He carried her whilst avoiding the ghosts’ attacks. At the same time, he revealed his position to Abraham, who was always paying attention to the surrounding sounds.
“I’ve caught you!” shouted Abraham excitedly.
He proceeded to form a seal with his hands. The hundreds of ghosts hovering in the air instantly changed their course of action and surrounded Alexia and Vincent. They cut off all their escape routes.
Vincent and Alexia stood back to back in a desperate manner. Vincent said to Alexia in a determined tone, “Later, I’ll use all my strength to make a hole. You should escape as soon as possible! Even if I have to fight to the death with Abraham now, it’s my own business. You don’t have to die with me!”
Upon hearing that, Alexia said ungratefully, “Cut the crap! Since I am back, I have no intention of leaving alive. If you can’t think of a way to save both of us, then we will die here together!”
Vincent was moved. He did not expect Alexia to choose to die with him. At the same time, he also felt encouraged. For the safety of his companions, he had to be 120% focused and try to think of a way to break this situation.
Abraham had locked onto Vincent’s position. He did not immediately control the ghosts to attack. Instead, he walked toward Vincent step by step, ready to kill him with his own hands.
Vincent looked at Abraham’s heavy and slow steps. As Vincent was angry, he decided to use this last chance to make a final attempt. He used his Return Journey of the Dead and slashed at the ghost in front of him.
What surprised Vincent was that these ghosts were not able to ignore his attacks like Abraham did. Instead, there were obvious wounds on their bodies.
Vincent sighed, “These ghosts are not real ghosts!”
Abraham finally said with some complacency, “That’s right! How could this king control and enslave the children of his own race? These ghostly figures were nothing more than a formation formed by using the Ghost Race’s soul refining method. We have collected the souls of more than 300 strong creatures. At the same time, they are also the strongest weapon in my hands!”
Vincent became excited. He sneered and said, “So they are all souls! Then I’m afraid you have miscalculated again this time!”
Vincent then put the Return Journey of the Dead back into his scabbard. He raised his right hand and aimed it at the souls in front of him. He shouted in a deep voice, “Spirit capturing and commanding!”
Suddenly, it felt like the rock mountain had frozen. All the ghosts froze on the spot and did not move.
Abraham stopped at the same time because he suddenly realized that he had lost contact with all the ghosts. He could clearly sense that these ghosts had not been killed.. Instead, it was more like someone had taken them away from him!
