Chapter 169 – Battle
The whole city was encased within a red wall, as if we’re inside the belly of a living creature .
[It’s already begun . Now how will you two stop us?]
I was able to share Greed’s memory and knowledge thanks to Crossing .
(s.h.i.+nn, he is… . He is trying to pry open the door to his land by using the people of Hauzen above ground as sacrifices . )
Sacrifices . And Hauzen was situated right on top of Grandeur .
He’s most likely going to extend his red liquid above ground and use that to kill people .
Then jam the large number of souls he will have murdered at the door to his land to force it open .
[You just have to busy yourself fighting Myne . In the meantime, I’ll use your loved ones as sacrifices to further my goal . ]
[Don’t mess with me!]
[Isn’t this what you do best, Gluttony? Killing people makes you stronger after all, am I correct? Right now, what I need for the last push to open the door is a good amount of human souls . ]
s.h.i.+nn, now nothing more than a huge red glob, said so as he floated towards the artificial sun .
Eris kept shooting at him in the meantime, but his red tentacles got in the way .
[Useless . I’ve been working hard toward this for such a long time . Do you think such attacks will be able to stop me? What can an indecent woman who’s only good at charming others do?]
When I tried to move to stop s.h.i.+nn, Myne was there to block me .
[Your opponent is her . Don’t forget, Gluttony . Mortal sin skill holders should try to get along with each other . ]
Eris shot faster, but all it did was impeding s.h.i.+nn slightly . Her firepower was lacking to truly stop him .
Even so, time was still ticking . I need to disable Myne as soon as possible .
Deflecting the black axe, I slashed with my black sword .
But my movement was easily read, as she dodged with ease .
Yet I noticed that she was faster than before . Sloth’s weight should’ve been starting to impede her by now .
Then I realized that something has changed in Myne .
The two horns on her forehead had somehow grown longer . And they emitted faint light .
(Wrath skill is entering its next phase . Just like Gluttony skill, Wrath skill causes the holder to become stronger the more angry they are . Along with that, heart and sensation will continue to be dulled down . At some point it’ll be impossible to snap Myne out of it . ]
[How long till Myne truly lost herself?]
(You should’ve known this already . Myne had no sense of taste . That was the effect of Wrath skill . She lost her sense of taste when she rampaged a long time ago… But perhaps she actually lost more than that already . )
Despite Sloth’s weight, Myne’s attack actually grew stronger .
The speed loss handicap from wielding Sloth was negated by the Wrath skill .
The two were basically complementing each other . Their effects synergized outstandingly .
Heavy attacks, but coupled with masterful wielding and topnotch speed .
It was almost the opposite of me, who lacked speed and relied more on simple but strong attacks .
Unable to keep up, I was forced to be defensive .
[This is bad!]
If this continued on, I’d stuck on a vicious circle .
Because Myne’s attack frequency had doubled as of now .
(I know you don’t want to hurt Myne, but we can’t stay like this either . I’ll revert back the black sword’s sharpness)
[Don’t . I’m here to stop Myne, not to kill each other . ]
(You’ll become her training sandbag at this rate . )
[Still . ]
Eris’ phantom bullet had produced 5 clones of myself as distractions .
But all five were smashed in a single strike .
(If you don’t do anything, you’ll end up like them . )
I’m sorry again .
Despite that, Eris shot another phantom bullet at me .
