The Evolution of a Goblin to the Peak - Chapter 332 - Awakening
Chapter 332 – Awakening
Souta and Lynn were sitting on exquisite chairs. Yuko was sitting on the floor behind them.
In the opposite direction was a girl who looked like seventeen to nineteen years old. This girl had long pink color hair and it was tied in a bun behind her head.
She was none other than the ruler of the Cloud Tower, Sulin. She had a nickname called the Huntress of the Sky High which she earned before she became the ruler of the Cloud Tower.
Despite her looks, she was a powerful powerhouse in this city and was probably at the top 3.
“I see… The Moon Tower is getting uncontrollable these days…” Sulin rubbed her chin as she glanced in the direction of the Moon Tower. After a while, she turned back her attention to Souta and asked, “But… I want to know the reason why you want to take down the Moon Tower. From my view, I don’t have a reason to help you.”
“Yeah, you don’t have a reason to help us but I can only say that the Moon Tower is planning something big,” Souta said as her as he took a sip of coffee.
“Big, you say…” Sulin muttered.
“Yeah, the incident could involve the whole city. The Moon Tower is not an ordinary organization. The worst-case scenario is that a great country will be involved in this incident.” Souta said seriously as he recalled what the person that he interrogated in the Deep Woods said to him.
“A great country…?” Sulin was shocked by what she heard. A great country was different from a large country. In this continent, there were only three great countries among the hundreds of countries in this land.
The three great countries were no joke. They couldn’t afford to offend that humongous country.
“Yes, it seems that they have a plan to fight a great country.” Souta nodded his head.
“Are they an idiot? Even a single SS-rank is enough to wipe out this city so how could they…” Sulin gritted her teeth. She glanced at him and asked, “By the way, do you know which great country are they planning to fight?”
“The True God’s Holy Kingdom… Also, the child that they kidnapped is from that kingdom and it seems that she’s important to them.” Souta said to her.
He knew that Cl.u.s.ter was from the True God’s Holy Kingdom but he couldn’t confirm if she was important to them. He could only lie in front of Sulin.
“It’s hard to believe what you’ve said to me…” Sulin muttered.
“Fine, I’ll tell you who we are…”
Souta sighed and decided to reveal who he is to Sulin. He looked at Lynn and saw her nodding at him. He then turned his attention back to Sulin.
“We’re from a large country called Hebrei Kingdom. It’s in the southeast of the Sky High Mountain…”
“I know the Hebrei Kingdom… Tell me how it is connected to the problem concerning the Moon Tower.” Sulin said.
“Do you know that the Hebrei Kingdom is quite far from this place, right?” Souta narrowed his eyes.
“Yes, I know that so what are you trying to say,” Sulina asked impatiently.
“I’m saying that they’ve head come to the Hebrei Kingdom just to kidnapped a single girl from the True God’s Holy Kingdom. If she’s not important why would they go into our country just to kidnap a little girl?” Souta explained to her why he thought that Cl.u.s.ter was important to the Moon Tower’s plan.
He also told her what happened to Deep Woods where he first met Cl.u.s.ter and the people of the Moon Tower. The Deep Woods was farther than the Hebrei Kingdom and they traveled that far just to take her.
“Are you sure that really happened?” Sulin asked him.
“Yeah, I’m sure. Cl.u.s.ter was with me for a few months and I don’t even know what they wanted from her. What makes them feel that they can handle the True God’s Holy Kingdom with her.” Souta said as he leaned his back on his chair and looked at the ceiling.
“Even god wouldn’t have the guts to say that they could fight the True God’s Holy Kingdom.” Sulin agreed with him.
“Yeah, the Deadly Sins, God’s Will, and Zodiacs have powerful god-level powerhouses but even them couldn’t take down the strongest force in this continent,” Souta paused for a moment before he added, “So what are you going to do with the Moon Tower?”
“Hmm…? I need to think about it…” Sulin rubbed her chin as she went deeply into her thoughts.
“Now that the Moon Tower has Cl.u.s.ter. I’m sure that they are going to make a move. They’ve been planning this for a long time.” Souta didn’t say anymore after that. He knew that once Sulin realized the graveness of this situation she will help him with her forces.
The three towers weren’t in an alliance at all. They were watching each other’s back warily.
Souta closed his eyes as he finally recalled that there’s no Blue Lawless City in the game. This city was destroyed in the early version of the game.
In the game, this city will become a city owned by players. Its name will become the Yuan Dai City. Yuan Dai was one of the top guilds in the game and they were also the wealthiest guild so they bought everything and owned this city for players.
But in this world, there’s no player aside from him. So it was impossible for this city to become Yuan Dai city. There’s no Yuan Dai Guild that will buy this land from the Mechanic Country.
In the game, Mechanic Country was the owner of this city but the wealthiest guild in the world bought it at a high price in their hands. Normally, the Mechanic Country wouldn’t let this city go but this city was too far from their territory so they had no choice but to sell it. Also, if they owned it their enemies would naturally attack this place.
‘So it seems that the Moon Tower is related to the fall of the Blue Lawless City…’ Souta thought.
Not just the Moon Tower, the True God’s Holy Kingdom and the Mechanic Country too. Something big happened here in the game that he didn’t know.
Even if Souta came from the game, it was impossible for him to know everything that happened in every place in this huge world.
“Okay, if the Moon Tower tried to do anything against this city I will lend you my strength,” Sulin spoke after contemplating for a while.
Souta grinned inwardly and said, “That time will come. There’s no doubt about it. If I’m the leader of the Moon Tower I will immediately start my plan after I got what I want. You just have to change your perspective and you will understand some things that you couldn’t understand before.”
“I just hope that his plan wouldn’t disturb this city,” Sulin said.
“Well, that’s impossible. You should contact the Sea Tower in case something happened.” Souta suggested to her.
“I will do that…” Sulin nodded her head. She knew that it was important to talk to the other ruling force of this city if a disaster was to come.
Souta sighed in relief after he heard her words. The first time he came here, he was worried that they were not going to listen to him. Luckily, these people were already wary about the Moon Tower from the beginning.
The conversation was smooth and everything went well. The only problem was when the Moon Tower going to start their plan.
“Lynn, we’re going to the Moon Tower,” Souta said to Lynn.
“Right now…?” Lynn asked.
“Yes, we’ve already finished what we need to do here,” Souta replied to her.
Curdova, the leader of the Moon Tower, was standing on the top floor of the tower.
There was an altar in front of him and a body of an unconscious girl was lying in front of it. On the floor, there was a magic circle with different colors on it. It represents the lowest to the highest tier of spell.
There were four silver-colored shafts around the altar. The tip of the shaft has a dragon head sculpture embedded on it. It was giving off an ominous vibe.
Behind Curdova were the six executives of the Moon Tower. Originally there were seven executives but only six remained as the other one died in the Ladros City.
Curdova looked back at his executives and said, “Guard each floor. Tighten the security of the tower. I will start the ritual and everything will change in this city. We will gain a power to defeat a good and fight our enemy, the True God’s Holy Kingdom.”
The six executives said at the same time. They turned around and left to guard the tower. Their dream will come true.
After they left, Curdova turned his attention back to the altar.
He approached Cl.u.s.ter and bit his thumb. He then dropped his blood on the magic circle on the floor.
“Oh great cosmos, I hereby open the treasure lying in front of thyself. Take a blood and offer thy strength.”
“Awaken thy treasure.”
He opened his eyes as his mana burst out of his body. His mana gathered above before the magic circle on the floor absorbed it.
After a while, the magic circle emitted different colors of light.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The four shafts released white light and it quickly changed into red light. The dragon heads on top of it opened its mouth and released an enormous amount of mana.
Strangely, Cl.u.s.ter who was unconscious in the center of the magic circle opened her eyes. Her body floated in the mid-air as her eyes flashed brightly. White tattoos appeared all over her body.
“It’s here… The awakening of the Thousand Spell, the Grimoire of Spell!” Curdova muttered in amazement.
