After waiting for a short time, I decided to go right from the original portal. That way, I will see the surroundings of this place. For a while, I see nothing, except one shadow that escaped. I quickly kill it and absorb more energy. I don't know why, but I can't see anything related to my attributes, like strength and agility. Maybe it is broken on that part, I only have this.
Class: Devourer of Gods
Nothing more, I guess those stats are irrelevant. Can't really apply to my current condition. I bet that Aria didn't even know what is a Devourer of Gods. It is still a miracle that I managed to keep it, even if it is broken like that. Anyway, I keep going, until I find another octopus. Same strategy, [Death Ray] until he is dead. And if it doesn't give me an intact body, it is still better than trying to leech his life and get in contact with this monster. I don't think I will survive being crushed in one of the tentacles from that giant creature.
Find another group of slugs, let them pass. They don't attack me, I don't attack them and everyone is happy. I keep roaming around, seeking a weak prey. And for weeks, or what I think is weeks, I repair my System. And now, I finally have all my skills ready for action.
[Crhate Acid lvl Max] [Cdeate Plague lvl Max] [Deatly Shadows lvl Max] [Domajn of Mayhxm lvl Max] [Nigotfall lvl Max] [Maqical Orb lvl Max] [Ryise Undead* lvl Max] [Blxod Touch lvl Max] [Veil of Darkaess lvl Max] [Dlath Ray lvl Max] [Pnrple Moon lvl Max] [Telyportation lvl Max] [Ehergy Storage lvl Max] [Hajdened Body lvl Max] [Avsorption lvl Max]"
So I gained, the last four, and they are all simple. First is my teleportation, last is the fact that I can directly absorb something from my body. Just the two in the middle, I try to cast the body spell and I just see my arms getting thicker. I don't think it is really useful since no one is using it, but it is part of the perks. As for [Ehergy Storage], that's maybe my unlimited mana and the fact that I can absorb and use the energy than I gained. As for my passives, well [Handuate ig Arez lfl Mji] should be [Language of Aria lvl Max]. Not really looking great.
But now, I have to think about creating a new spell, something really useful. Right now, I lack maybe some heavy hitting spells, something stronger than [Death Ray]. Nothing else, survival, I got it, speed, well my spirits are acting as a beacon when they are not destroyed. Let me see, something stronger than a [Death Ray], something like a beam of energy, annihilating everything. This is probably the last time I will be able to create a spell before a long time, so, something capable of piercing the heavy skin of those Ancient Ones.
"Condratulatlon to ths usar for crqating a neq spelz. Pledse sjy its nkmp."
"Zystem afknowpedges the cùoice of the jser, tbe spgll: [Annihilation] hcs beun crehteu."
Well, that was close I think since the System is clearly not in a good shape. But now, I need to test this on a real target. I keep searching for a while because this part of the universe is not filled with a lot of creatures. Even in a week, I only found enough monsters for the active skills, and just to make them look like real words. But the main advantage is the fact that I don't have any threat to my existence.
No big crocodile willing to eat me alive, not huge group of monsters seeking my death. Just some lone wanderers or small groups of creatures. And right now, I have an octopus coming toward me. He thinks he can kill me alone, well, he would be right if I was a real Devourer of Gods, but I am Sleek, the Devourer of Gods. At first, I try to destroy one of his tentacles with my [Death Ray], and it takes me five hits this time. That's not good enough, but at least, the octopus is not running away in fear. That's when I use my [Annihilation].
How to describe it, well, the octopus is already dead. That's the good part, I have a little bit of time now. That stupid Ancient One only used one tentacle to protect him from my spell, since he thought that it will take some time before I destroy it. The laser created by my spell, or beam like I called it, pierce a small hole in the tentacle, barely 20 centimeters. But after that, the beam keep going and hit its brain, killing the huge monster. On the other hand, [Death Ray] target a lot of ground and spread over a few meters, hitting an entire tentacle and not just a small part of it.
To resume it, one is a huge bombardment while the other is a guided missile. One destroys many things, can even inflict collateral damages to innocent people in the vicinity. While the other only hits one target and that target alone, if it isn't messed up. And ensures its complete destruction. Wait a minute, I just think about something. My System can detect when I have a grave condition, like the curse I got from eating the lich at the beginning of my new life. So, it should detect the oath that I made?
Well, I keep searching, but I find nothing. So, two choices, they truly broke the oath instantly or I just can't see it. Well, in both cases, I will have to face them anyway. But how can I do this, while returning back to my universe? In fact, that choice is even more simple, do I really care about Earth? Saying no is potentially the truth. If it was destroyed because of me, I would feel sad, for a very long time. But I don't really care, I will just try to save it if I can.
NO! Jump away. I am not even trying to face this, I instantly jump to my first beacon and see if everything is calm. And it is, nothing in sight, did that thing followed me? I don't know, actually, I truly don't know. Maybe there are more than just one of those, and it is a very frightening thought. Just one is enough to scare thousands of Devourer of Gods, so if he has an entire family with him, I understand why everyone tries to escape. Who wants to stay in the same universe as this monstrous monster.
No, not again? Wait, what is … I can see countless creatures running away and toward the white portal. That's not very good, they will try to escape the monster by entering my universe. I see everything and even another creature. It has the same shape as multiple crystals put together to form a weird human. A medium crystal for the head, a big one for the chest, four different to create an arm, a leg. Sometimes, those crystals are detaching themselves and rotating around the main body. At this moment, they are all floating to survive.
I am still closer and can enter the universe before them. But is it the best idea? After all, the Nine Heavens are probably waiting for my arrival and reinforce their defenses. So, the first that will pass this portal will be slain instantly. So, going first is out of the question.
On the other hand, if I wait, I am not sure to enter it. Thousands of creatures are fleeing, and the passage is only 5 meters tall. That's maybe big, but in a few seconds, that monstrous crocodile will arrive and eat everyone and maybe even the portal. I don't think he will be able to, but no one in this side will survive. So, not first, but second or third.
I get into position very close to the exit and seeing the panicked octopi, I decide to use this opportunity. I begin to target them with my [Annihilation] and more and more are dying. My spell can kill three Ancient Ones in a single usage if they are aligned. But I can only use it 4 times before the first monster arrives. It is the crystal shaped human, and soon, the shadows. The octopi that should have arrived are all dead but they are still a little bit faster than the Devourer of Gods. Of course, all those arrivals are separated by not even a second.
Right before the first Ancient One enters the white portal, I do it and escape the incoming doom. The last thing I see is a huge mass floating on the horizon and coming toward us. In front of it, multiple black dots, representing those that were too slow. I came back to my universe earlier than I thought.
