Facing such a formidable foe, Glenn did not dare, nor could he afford to be distracted.
His body slightly trembled as he tried to amalgamate two repulsive forces. He had managed to do that in the matrix of his mind, but it was another thing to manage it in reality.
If anything went wrong with the matrix, maybe just in the next second, Glenn would be obliterated by his own creation, his prided Fire Blast Sorcery!
With the gradual congregation of the two repulsive forces, a small-sized, bloody red ball containing stable energy emerged, which made Glenn become relieved.
No fatal mistakes were made!
Glenn would not be exterminated anyhow as long as the energy ball had been created, and even if there might be lapses afterwards, these problems would not stand in the way. That accounted for Glenn’s previous relief.
As Glenn tried to make his hands meet with all his strength, that scarlet energy ball before his chest started to grow, gradually to the size of a baby’s fist. A confident smile appeared on his face.
There had been no problems with the stability of the fire element although there were a couple of deviations for the water element, one of them caused by miscounting and another by the specific character of a volatile rare symbol. But generally speaking, the Fire Blast Sorcery was accomplished. A success! Glenn was in the air watching the Fire Blast Ball in front of his chest for a while, before he turned his attention to that pitiful man lying on the ground, who was tortured in that fire and was covered blood from head to toe.
With a faint sneer on Glenn’s face, he said in his mind: “You’re about to lose!”
But, the potion and Glenn’s Life Leaf was about to lose their efficacy, he had to hurry up.
Meanwhile, Hill had almost gone mad and was dancing hysterically. He had not perished only because he was mouthing a Life Leaf himself. But as he caught sight of the energy ball he became more frightened. His eyes turned bloodshot and the veins in his forehead throbbed.
Relying on his volition, Hill fired his last round of infrasonic waves.
The bell in Hill’s chest rang and the sonic waves came towards Glenn. Glenn spun away to avoid the waves. The waves posed no danger to him at all but to his amazement he found that the energy ball seemed to have been instablized and the fire and water elements that had been aggregated seemed are getting separated.
Glenn’s eyelid twitched, and the veins in his forehead throbbed. He let out a low roar like a beast while using his remaining mental strength to rein in the two dispersing element forces.
The sorcery, as expected, was beyond a student’s power to make use of!
After all of his striving actions, the shaking ball resumed its stability which put Glenn’s restless heart into rest. He had no more magical strength to start it all over again. Beyond that he would not be able to suppress his enemy by relying on his constitution nor via his element methods of attack
Glenn sneered and glanced at Hill who was struggling desperately like a cornered beast. He then tried to join his hands again; after just one more step, this powerful (attack grade reaching 320 degrees) sorcery which had cost him over-a-decade painstaking effort would “flex its muscles” for the first time. Hill stood no chance unless he broke his badge.
But one could not imagine how arrogant they could get——Hill Woods had discarded his life-saving badge a very long time ago.
“No…Stop it! No, please, make it stop. I beg you——”
Hill yelled as he found the congregating energy ball that was about to achieve its final form.
Glenn remained unmoved and continued with the last steps of the sorcery.
Since it was his first time with the Fire Blast Sorcery, there were specific details that he was not familiar, but he would get better at it soon.
Meanwhile, as if Hill had arrived at a decision of great importance, he looked resolute. He then pulled out a vial, poured the liquids inside into his mouth, and then he wrenched out the heart-sized bell in his chest.
Hill looked as if he was drunk, but he dared not delay a second. He hastily lifted his head up and produced the loudest possible sound waves towards one end of the bell!
The bell vibrated!
However, the waves did not travel until the bell grow into a very large one. And after the waves penetrated through the large version of the bell, the waves were strengthened as if by some sound lever and generated into magnificent, marvelous blares, a mighty all-conquering torrent of waves, cannonading towards Glenn who was just about to succeed in a few more seconds.
Glenn stopped the aggregation shortly and dodged them promptly!
Hit by the torrent of waves, the unfinished energy ball vibrated for a while before bursting into countless water and fire elements, which then disappeared completely in the air.
In the farther place, a high-rising stone behind Glenn which was hit crashed and shards of rubbles fell off.
As the space was twisted, Glenn reappeared on top of another stone pillar. His knees went weak and he had to squat, gasping for air.
Glenn looked terrible. Now he was too weak to engage Hill again.
Hill’s condition was no better. He supported himself by leaning against a protruding ice block, looking weak and pale.
After a bout of coughs, Hill wiped the blood on his lips with his shabby sleeve and exerted to raise his head towards Glenn. He gasped in a hoarse voice.
“Glenn, you’re good, good enough to force me to cast this sorcery again. I regretted using it the first time because all of my schoolmates were scared off and didn’t dare to try me again since then. I’ve been lonely for decades for that reason…”
Glenn gazed at him, feeling exhausted.
However, the bottom line was that Glenn was in a better condition. His giant——his element activity animal——was in a noticeable advantage against Hill’s and it was a matter of time before it won.
“You stand no chance, just leave this place!” Glenn panted out his warning.
Hill threw a half smile and shook his head. “No, I won’t quit, because I’ve just revived! Glenn, I don’t mean to rely on this one sorcery to defeat you, and I am starting to enjoy living! Again.”
As he was speaking, Hill raised his arm slowly and pulled a black key from his ragged robe and then held it in his blood-dripping palm!
“The loser——is you!” Hill exclaimed in his last bit of strength.
Almost immediately, there appeared some queer wave motions within the district, and an inky rift of over ten meters emerged over Hill’s head! When peeking into the space through the rift, it was pure darkness except for two golden-hair-covered, sturdy arms. The arms were stretching out and grabbed the rift’s two edges as if a titan was trying to get out from that black rift in the next second!
“Stigmata Friendship key!” Hill exclaimed.
Glenn stared at Hill in horror and astonishment.
In the far distance, the students who were looking at Glenn with mixed feelings suddenly became terrified again after they caught sight of the black key and what that key had released.
Mina and Mille deplored. “Glenn, you’ve been outmaneuvered in the end.” Sam closed his eyes and sighed. ” We’ve been as short-sighted as a bunch of crickets in a box…” Bionna, Roga and Yates remained silent but they were convinced that even if Glenn failed today, he had triumphed over them and his power would be acknowledged. Nina sobbed, eyes tearful. “Glenn, you can do it!” Kyrie was about to do something about the situation but when he noticed what Glenn was trying to do, he stopped shortly.
Standing at the edge of the stone pillar, Glenn slowly held his arm up.
“I have one too.”
As he was speaking, he showed a purple key in his raised hand.
Soon, a rift, only larger, appeared overhead. Two sturdy golden paws stretched out with a rush and teared the rift longer.
A massive bird with a red cockscomb emerged from the other side of the rift!
Still holding high the black key, Glenn became quite surprised after seeing the giant bird’s head. “No…it’s the bird.”
This creature was the animal who had been guarding the ginsengs, and who had prevented Glenn from stealing them. Glenn had stolen one though.
It was a powerful creature whose power was equivalent to that of a level-three sorcerer!
In this case, Glenn could completely relax.
“Owner of Black Tower, a level-six Stigmata sorcerer, deserves his name.”
