DEATH… AND ME - Chapter 1993
Chapter 1993 Escape!
Tapir didn’t quite like Rean’s words, but he would be lying if he said he didn’t expect something like that. ‘Try to keep it up for as long as you can.’
Following that, he took out a piece of dark crystal from his spatial ring.
Fagund was surprised to see that as he knew what it was. ‘Condensed Living Soul Crystal? Elder Tapir, this…’
‘I know!’ Tapir didn’t need to hear it from Fagund. ‘I obviously don’t like it. However, when I got this thing, it was already like that. It wasn’t me who created it. Besides, as a Light Devil, I can’t use it for cultivation. I just thought that I might have a use for it someday, so…’ Tapir passed it on to Rean. ‘You use it. That should fuel your soul and allow your skill to run for much longer. You’re a normal devil, after all.’
Rean’s mouth twitched for a moment. A normal devil? What normal devil? He wasn’t even a devil at all!
Rean then looked at Roan, who shook his head. ‘Don’t look at me. I don’t know what could happen if you tried to use that thing.’
Rean took the Condensed Living Soul Crystal from Tapir after that. ‘I’ve never seen this thing before, so I don’t know if I can use it.’
‘Just use your extraction ability, the same way you did back in the Realm of Gods against living beings. It’s just that you’ll get a lot more souls at once than just one,’ Tapir explained.
What same way? Rean didn’t know any possible way!
‘Change direction!’ Suddenly, Roan warned Tapir. ‘There’s a trap ahead!’
Tapir couldn’t feel anything with his Divine Sense in front. However, their lives were already being saved by these brothers, so he decided he might as well trust them once more. His four wings trembled again as fused Light Element and Spatial Power forced Tapir to go around the area pointed out by Roan.
As soon as Tapir did that, he saw a formation on the ground activate, forming a huge dome that tried to enclose him. Unfortunately, Tapir was still within its borders and moved in another direction. Before the dome was completed, Tapir passed through the gaps and escaped it. ‘That was close…’
Following that, two more High Devils appeared, enraged that Tapir had escaped their trap. They had used abilities to hide both their cultivations and the trap formation, so how did Tapir notice it?
Well, the one who noticed it wasn’t Roan but Sister Orb. As long as a formation existed within her perception range, she would notice it. [Good! The way is clear now. Keep going.]
Tapir began to rely on the twins even more after that. ‘Where now?’
‘Just keep running,’ Rean answered. ‘Your flight speed is higher than the guys behind us. We’ll leave them behind in no time.’
Tapir nodded in response. ‘I can see that. But can your skill last that long? You seem quite tired.’
He was right. Rean’s Light Element and Divine Soul Power were being used up at an alarming rate. He had that Condensed Living Soul Crystal, but he wasn’t a real devil. That thing was useless to him. ‘Shit, ensuring my Light Element isn’t seen makes it complicated. Too many things to pay attention to at the same time.’
Roan pondered over it for a bit and decided that it was way better to escape than to care about such a thing.
‘Light bending skill!’
Without hesitation, he used Rean’s Light bending skill, making their group disappear in thin air. Of course, the Divine Sense bending skill was also activated, but the enemies were too close and had much higher cultivations. They were able to pierce through it without a problem. Nevertheless, being unable to see them with the naked eye was enough. ‘Forget it. Just go all out!’
Soon, Roan brought out his White Scythe and poured his Divine Soul Power inside. Naturally, the scythe began to gather the surrounding’s Light Element, which Roan also used for the Enhancement skill. It wasn’t as good as Rean’s, but it was extra help. The important part was that the devils pursuing them couldn’t see it.
Rean quickly nodded before the Light Element in his body burst forth. At the same time, more Light Element began to gather in him, even with the lower concentration of it in the air. ‘Elder Tapir! Full speed ahead! There’s no need to save energy anymore!’
Tapir was still puzzled about Rean’s Light Element abilities. Now, Roan was also using the same thing, even helping him with similar skills. Nevertheless, Tapir put those thoughts at the back of his head for now and flapped his angel wings with great force. ‘No one can hold us down now!’
The fused Light Element and Spatial Powers concentrated in Tapir’s wings as he once again increased his speed. Since the twins said he didn’t need to save the energy, then he wouldn’t.
A brilliant ray of light cut through the dark skies, even though it wasn’t possible to see what was inside with one’s eyes. Not before long, Tapir finally left the area near the Path of Reincarnation, especially his enemies. That allowed him to open a fissure in space and dive into it with everyone else. Unless someone was already waiting for him inside the fissure in space, no one would stop Tapir anymore.
Sometime later, four High Devils appeared in the area where Tapir entered space with terrible looks on their faces.
“Fuck! How will we explain this to Clan Master Mephisto?!” Lacki was the first one to complain.
However, Yufibe just shook his head. “No one could expect the Light Devil Clan to have such a terrifying movement skill. Tapir probably paid a very high price to use it.”
Well… Tapir didn’t, but he wouldn’t come back to tell them that.
Lacki then looked at the other two High Devils. “It was your fault, Janos, Klomed. We led him straight into your trap, but you still screwed it up and let him notice it.”
“Fuck you!” Janos and Klomed were obviously their names. “We also don’t know how he did that. It was supposed to be impossible to notice it.”
“Enough!” Eventually, Yufibe intervened. “We need to tell clan master. Let’s go.”
“What about Losferu fighting Malado?”
“Forget him.” Yufibe didn’t care. “Since Tapir escaped, it’s pointless to kill him.”
With that, the four high Devils opened fissures in space and left the area as well.
