Chapter 98: A relaxed situation
Ye Tian Xie’s eyes swept across the surroundings and there were twelve skeletons in total. They waved their white skeleton arms that made people shiver in fear. They encircled Ye Tian Xie and came from all directions as they approached him.
“En……En……What kind of place is this…….En…….Such a terrible smell……Yi? These strange things……Ah!!!”
The sleepy eyed Guo guo saw the surrounding skeletons in that moment. She let out a squeal that almost made Ye Tian Xie drop the Moment of Destiny……
“Wu wa!! How terrifying……How terrifying……Master……Master, master, master, are you there…..They are really scary……Wu wu……”Guo Guo gripped onto Ye Tian Xie’s neck, making it hard for Ye Tian Xie to breathe. Her small little face was buried into the nape of his neck and she didn’t dare lift her hands, or even open her eyes.
As a little girl that loved beautiful and pure things, Guo Guo had a natural fear and an urge to avoid these kinds of ugly and disgusting creatures. Ye Tian Xie could feel her body trembling……Even the tears had sprung in her eyes due to her fear.
Finally…..Ye Tian Xie had found something that could scare Guo Guo.
“Un, Guo Guo, don’t be afraid. Watch master take care of them immediately.” This was the first time Guo Guo had depended on him. Ye Tian Xie who had always been “led around by the nose” finally felt like he was the master (how could it be described?). He lifted the Moment of Destiny and picked a direction. He decided to take on the skeletons in front of him.

These were the stats that Ye Tian Xie held at level fourteen. With the stat reward from clearing the Abyss Level Trial and adding in the HP Ring’s two hundred HP, his current max HP was at five hundred and sixty. But, this figure was only close to a Warrior of the same level, and was nowhere close to a Knight of the same level. Because Jobs……For example the Knight Job, once a person had changed jobs to become a knight, they would immediately gain an additional three hundred HP.
Even though Ye Tian Xie’s attack power was stronger than other attack Jobs of the same level because of Moment of Destiny, his stats, at the moment were only a little bit better; moreover, he was at an absolute disadvantage because he didn’t have any attack skills when compared with other players.
But, his innate attributes of 72 Reflex, 53 Perception, and 42 Focus would allow him to play in such a way that would make other players with similar stats react with a shock bordering on horror.
Strong ones, never had needed things like reason.
Under the dark blue light, Moment of Destiny streaked out to create its first streak of black glow. His sword swept across the three skeleton soldiers, but at the same time, the attacks of the three skeleton soldiers fell on his body.
-201, -204, -200.
-59, -62, -60!
The HP of the level seventeen skeleton soldiers couldn’t even compare to the level fifteen small raccoons Ye Tian Xie had killed before, but their defensive abilities were much stronger, after all, their bodies were made of bones. Just three of these skeleton soldiers combined attacks brought Ye Tian Xie’s HP down by a third and had him trapped. If the ten plus skeleton soldiers surrounding him had come at him at the same time, then he had only one choice in dealing with them.
Ye Tian Xie’s expression didn’t change nor did his his body move. He welcomed the simple and short ranged attacks of the three skeletons in front of him, using them to bring down his HP bar to lower than 50%.
-60, -62, -93!
The individual attacks of the three skeletons rained on Ye Tian Xie’s body simultaneously. The last one had triggered the 150% attack damage to bring Ye Tian Xie’s HP to below one hundred points. And at this time, the skeletons that had been dancing around him as they waved their skeletal arms approached Ye Tian Xie.
An icy smile appeared on Ye Tian Xie’s lips and he instantly vanished. He pushed off the ground with his foot with his body turning at a right angle. He dodged all the attacks of the skeletons with the smallest amount of space between them as a low roar came from his mouth.
“Berserk Fighting Will!”
A faint glow seemed to explode from Ye Tian Xie’s body and immediately, a wild desire to fight began to fill Ye Tian Xie’s chest…….«Destiny»’s reality degree was very shocking. There was a skill designed to such an unbelievable degree of perfection as such it could actually affect a person’s emotion. But this kind of feeling, Ye Tian Xie, however, did not reject this feeling, rather, he liked it and even clinged to it. The corners of his mouth raised into a cold smile. Taking this wild aura, he jumped forward and swept out horizontally in front of him, attacking everything in front of him.
-275, -270, -552, -271.
His movements became fierce, his attacks became sharp and his body became nimble. This was a kind of feeling that made him comfortable.
It is exactly when a person faces an enemy in this kind of situation, that he displays all his skills to a perfect level. Facing these level seventeen skeleton soldiers, the “Berserk Fighting Will” would be a akin to a courting death skill for normal players. No one would dare to fight monsters in such a condition, even, if they had increased attack power and speed. Ye Tian Xie was a terrifying exception. When he used this unique skill to fight, he didn’t become apprehensive or cautious, rather……he had become excited.
The attack scattered the bloodless skeleton soldiers just like pieces of wood and they became scattered bones on the ground……but there were no gold coins or items that burst out from them. Ye Tian Xie quickly folded in his body and calculated the distance. His arms swept out as he swung his sword in the largest arc possible and hit five skeleton soldiers in a single slash. The minute the Moment of Destiny hit the skeleton soldiers, a “ka ka ka” sound rang out and their bones were cut into pieces.
Suddenly, another five skeleton soldiers violently rushed at Ye Tian Xie. In front of Ye Tian Xie, because of his abnormal reflex and perception, they seemed to be barely moving. It was impossible for these skeletons that, shook every time they took a step, to touch Ye Tian Xie’s body. And against Ye Tian Xie with 30% increased move speed, these skeleton soldiers that had surrounded him had no way of even touching his clothes.
In this environment thick with yin qi, Ye Tian Xie was more like a demon compared to those shaking skeletons.
Ka! Ka! Ka!
Another three skeletons fell underneath three continuous attacks from Ye Tian Xie. Ye Tian Xie’s eyes slightly turned and looked at the final three skeletons. His eyes flashed and his shaking body turned into a indiscernible shadow. Under his guidance, the three skeleton soldiers stood together and came from an askew direction. Ye Tian Xie turned his body around and very easily took care of the three of them.
The world turned silent and there were bones all over the ground underneath Ye Tian Xie. From the twelve skeleton soldiers, not a single one dropped anything. There was not even a single copper coin……It was even stingier than the people of Gu Ping Town.
“Wu, wu……wu, wu…..How terrifying, too terrifying……Master, let’s leave this place ok? Guo Guo is very scared……”
Guo Guo’s body was curled up into a small ball as she hung onto Ye Tian Xie’s neck. Ye Tian Xie’s eyes looked around the surroundings and after making sure that no more new skeleton soldiers were coming, he released the effects of “Berserk Fighting Will”. His berserk feeling subsided while his heart began to fill with doubts……The first floor of the Skeleton Cavern is this big, but why were there only ten or so monsters that had come out?
“Alright Guo Guo, those terrifying monsters have all been taken care of by Master.” Ye Tian Xie poked Guo Guo’s little butt with a finger as he calmly spoke.
Guo Guo raised her small head and she quickly looked left and right. After making sure that there were no terrifying monsters left, she carefully adjusted herself to sit on Ye Tian Xie’s shoulder. The she said in a frightened voice, “Master, let’s leave this place ok? This place is really dark and very scary…….Also there are terrifying monsters that will appear like the one from before……”
The corners of Ye Tian Xie’s mouth drew back, but then immediately he revealed a very serious expression, “Relax, all those monsters from earlier have been taken care of, they won’t appear again……But……There isn’t just that one kind of terrifying monster here, there are also even more terrifying monsters!”
“Ah…….” Guo Guo’s hands crossed in front of her chest as her small teeth began to chatter.
Ye Tian Xie’s voice became sinister. When Guo Guo heard him speak, her body began to shake in fright, “The skeleton that had appeared just now was a complete skeleton. Before I came here, there were people telling me that there were also many broken skeletons. Their bodies were covered in blood and they were missing their heads. They can even stretch out their tongues to eat people. They also said that the thing they love to eat most are small lolis……”
Guo Guo’s entire body was trembling as her snow white face began to turn even paler. Then with a sudden “wa” sound, she instantly grabbed onto Ye Tian Xie’s neck, almost making Ye Tian Xie suffocate. Her mouth was wide open as she continued to release a terrified sound.
With this kind of reaction, Ye Tian Xie finally relaxed his expression and revealed a giant smile. He had almost begun to cry from laughing, “Ha, ha, ha, ha……Guo Guo is scared of such kinds of things. I was just saying these things to play around with Guo Guo, how could these kind of things actually exist? Ha, ha, ha, ha……”
Bu, bu, bu, bu……But……Mas……Mas, mas, mas, master……It…….It’s right behind you!!!!”
Ye Tian Xie, “！@#￥%……”
Ye Tian Xie turned his head and his face turned white.
