Ant king Vs Sung Jin-Woo continued..:
The ant king quickly sensed the ‘changes’ taking place on the body that it felt so proud of.
Its outer skin, most likely tougher and hardier than any known metal on this planet, began developing cracks all over the place. On the other hand, the enemy was easily withstanding the ant king’s attacks.
‘It can’t be.’
An impossible hypothesis quickly entered the ant king’s head.
‘I… I’m losing out on physical strength?!’
Not only that, to a human, less than half its size?
The ant king’s chin shot upwards.
‘How dare a human, who’s inferior to a bug…!!’
As you all can see and understand the whole picture, Jin-Woo utterly destroys the ant king just like stomping an insect. At the beginning of the fight, he taunts this creature but those were not mere empty threats. We actually see that he broke the ant king’s skin which was supposed to be one of the toughest materials. Remember how Goto got beaten even after trying hard. Read ahead if you want to know more!
Ant king’s Poison Sting:
The ant king’s head snapped back down, and at the same time, it fired a poison needle out of its mouth.
A tip coated in deadly poison attached to the tongue-like tentacle shot out like a bullet.
It was an unavoidable attack aimed at the enemy’s face in this point-blank range.
The human deftly tilted his head out of the way to dodge the needle, but a smile still crept up on the face of the ant king as the result of its attack became clear.
The needle still managed to scratch the human’s cheek and left a small wound there.
‘You’ve really given me so much trouble, you human b*stard.’
The ant king smiled widely and smacked the human’s face. However….
The human raised his left hand and blocked it.
The human’s right fist flew in from the other side and struck the ant king so hard that the monster was shoved down to the ground rather unceremoniously.
For the first time ever, a pained yelp shot out from the king’s mouth.
[Detoxification has been completed.]
The ant king was not only adept in realms of strength but it also had multiple weapons like this poison sting. In its journey, it had devoured some of the deadly creatures like a venomous sea snail and it is mentioned that it somewhat coincidentally, absorbed a skill called Paralysis Poison. But due to the effects of the system the poison nullifies. So what do you all think the system is capable of doing. And what else can this system give Jin Woo except for the ultra resistance buffs and the ultimate training routine?
Sung Jin-Woo can sense the monster’s emotions!!
‘I was wondering why it was celebrating all alone, but huh, is this why?’
Maybe that was the case because, for some reason, he could sense that the ant king showed much more panic when he moved without a problem just now.
He wasn’t talking about the all-powerful Buff getting rid of the poison, no, but the fact that he could actually sense the insect-like monster’s emotions.
Before he had realized it, he could sense what other monsters were feeling about.
‘Wait, was it from around the time I fought those High Orcs?’
Back then, he thought that he was able to decipher what those creatures were feeling by looking at their facial expressions and their gestures. However, that ant monster wasn’t even what you’d classify as a humanoid creature.
Indeed, that thing had no other facial expressions other than crumpling it in anger.
‘Is this because of my Perception?’
Now, this has gone interesting Sung Jin-Woo can sense the monster’s emotions. Remember High orcs arc? There too he was able to sense what the orcs were feeling and he was able to understand them why? Though. How is he able to understand the monsters? Why did he receive the player’s powers and the help of the system? We know Sung Jin-Woo can summon shadow soldiers and command them. He can turn his foes too into shadow soldiers. So, this also tells us that he can understand the monsters and make them his followers! Even Igris followed Sung because of his speech. Later on, we can expect more arcs in the continuation of these powers.
Ant King tries everything possible – Speed
The ant king had changed its strategy now.
‘If that human’s specialty is his strength, then there’s no need to face him head-on.’
The ant king’s true weapon was its speed.
Right now, the ant king had decided to throw away that selfish reasoning and focus all of its beings in this battle from now on.
The enlarged body reverted back to its original size, while the claws in its hands grew even longer and sharper, like well-honed blades.
Jin-Woo studied the changes taking place in the ant king and realized that the creature would change how it attacked from here onwards.
Two shortswords he summoned from the Inventory landed in Jin-Woo’s hands.
He easily deflected the ant king’s claw slashing down from above with his shortsword.
The follow-up attacks from the ant king landing on the ground, as well as from Jin-Woo spinning around, clashed violently.
Clang!! Claaaang!! Clang!!
As they exchanged offense and defense countless times, the ant king was now completely beset with unbridled shock.
‘How can this be?!’
The enemy was actually matching its speed. No, it wasn’t only that – as the seconds ticked by, his movement speed was actually picking up as if his muscles had finally loosened up sufficiently enough.
The mental shock this monster, this so-called ant king felt right now, it was being transmitted in full to Jin-Woo. Right now, that monster was greatly shaken up.
Did it not possess anything that was better than what that human possessed?
The ant king looks brutally bashed right now. Strength, speed, hidden weapons it has tried everything possible it can. One on one it is clear that Jin Woo is in utter advantage. So What will happen next? How will the fight end? Do you people think Sung can finish the ant king once and for all? It is clear who will win the fight but how will the fight end!
So stay tuned and enjoy the upcoming chapters.
