Chapter 1274: 1274
The creature wasn't stupid . The underlings in the heroic ranks were almost intelligent beasts, so the leader was even smarter . It could vaguely understand what Noah was trying to do .

That understanding mostly came from its instincts . The leader knew that the world was in danger, and Noah's actions taught it about the solution to that issue .

Still, the quasi-rank 7 Snake was a magical beast . There was a limit to how much it could care about Noah's good intentions . The creature mostly felt anger at the sight of its dying pack .

Anger wasn't the only feeling that spread in its mind . The leader saw how Noah never spent more than a few instants in each region, and the destruction that he could unleash in that short time was worthy of respect .

Tens of rank 6 Snakes had already died by his hand, and the leader had yet to reach him . The quasi-rank 7 specimen had to accept that its opponent wasn't a simple invader .

That acknowledgment gave birth to another feeling inside the leader . A tinge of fear appeared among its anger . Noah had managed to make the quasi-rank 7 creature worried .

Of course, Noah wasn't aware of that . He could learn about it if he paid attention to the leader, but his mind could only think about the location of the next packs .

The continuous sprint through his dimension had yet to affect his centers of power, but Noah knew that drawbacks would arrive soon . His movement technique wasn't ideal for long distances, and he had to pay a hefty price to cross entire regions with it .

Noah didn't have any other option . The Warp spell was too slow and would ultimately let the leader reach him if he started to rely on it . Moreover, he wouldn't mind dealing with the consequences of his actions if he succeeded in his mission .

The fourth pack eventually appeared in his vision . Noah saw twelve Snakes after he came out of his dimension, and he didn't hesitate to place his blade on his forehead once his mental waves branded those creatures .

Twelve black lines formed and severed the heads of those creatures in half . Noah had managed to perform a perfect attack in that harsh situation . He had finally become used to his current level of power .

Noah stored a few corpses and sprinted again . Yet, a deafening roar reached his ears before he entered his dimension .

The cry was close . The leader had almost reached him, and that put even more pressure on Noah's mind .

'Thirty-eight underlings, three peak rank,' Noah updated the kill count in his mind as he flew through his dimension .

He didn't know if he could make it till the last pack before the leader caught up with him . Still, he wasn't willing to stop now that he had come so closer to completing his goal .

His math wasn't perfect, but he had a chance of ending his mission during that hunt . Noah didn't even think about escaping when he understood that he could fix the world in one last sprint .

The presence behind Noah became bigger . Noah heard the leader's roars from inside his dimension, and the pressure they generated threatened to interrupt his movement technique .

Yet, Noah endured that pressure as he pressed forward . His ambition also reappeared to raise his centers of power a bit more and give him the chance to reach the last pack before the leader .

The leader moved faster than him even after the last empowerment . Noah was almost about to give up on his hunt at some point, but a few lights suddenly appeared in his vision and made him throw those thoughts in the back of his mind .

Noah came out of his dimension and turned . A dozen rank 6 Eternal Snakes were in front of him, but he had to take care of the threat behind him before aiming for those creatures .

A massive reptilian head filled his vision when he turned . Noah saw the quasi-rank 7 Eternal Snake up close for the first time . The creature resembled a slithering dark-green river that filled the world with a silver radiance .

The leader leapt toward Noah as soon as it sensed his aura . It had waited for that moment since the beginning of that chase . Its anger was about to explode . It couldn't wait to rip the intruder to pieces .

The world in Noah's eyes slowed down as his concentration reached its peak . He could see the leader spreading its mouth as it flew toward him, and he raised his sword as he prepared his attack .

Laws replaced the matter in his vision . Noah had less than an instant to prepare his attack, but that time was more than enough to call upon all his power .

Black smoke and dark matter flowed out of his body to create layers of armors that empowered his physical might . His figure began to radiate a sharpness that opened cuts in the fabric of the sky .

The Demonic Sword began to radiate a similar sharpness . The blade trembled as dark matter started to leak out of its body .

The leader reached him as soon as Noah completed those preparations . He didn't have the time to perform a slash, but he didn't need to deploy a sword art in that situation .

The leader's upper mouth and the Demonic Sword clashed as Noah wielded it with both his hands . A massive pressure fell on his arms as he and the creature exchanged their first attacks .

The layers of armors on his arms and shoulders exploded into a storm of corrosive gas and raging dark matter . His bones also screeched as he tried to fend that creature off .

Noah eventually had to give in to the massive physical strength that had landed on his body . Still, a cold smile appeared on his face when he saw the leader in a similar situation .

The clash had flung Noah away, but it had also stopped the leader's charge . A deep cut had appeared on the creature's mouth too, and Noah's sharpness continued to inflict damages in that spot even after the main slash lost its power .

Noah had just confirmed that he could injure a quasi-rank 7 creature and that his physical might was almost on its level . Moreover, he had obtained those results without learning the depths of his new power .

There was a chance that he could defeat the quasi-rank 7 specimen already if he went all-out . However, the world had yet to return to a condition when it could withstand a battle between the two .

Noah crashed on the frozen region, and he disregarded his momentum to focus on the creatures around him . His mind could only sense eight rank 6 Snakes in that situation, and Noah quickly placed his blade on his forehead to kill them .

Black lines appeared in front of the Snakes and cut their heads in half . Those creatures died right after announcing their leader's arrival, and the quasi-rank 7 creature watched that happening in front of its eyes .
