Chapter 771: Chapter 771 Spirit Magic Spells Part 1

Lith's cocoon opened and the wings shapeshifted into four huge arms . Each one of them grabbed one of Ormr's spheres, wrapping them like a shroud and making them useless .

Ormr turned the spheres into a combination of blades and projectiles made out of darkness element . Lith's shrouds twisted and deformed under the spells' pressure but they didn't break .

Ormr was flabbergasted, he had no idea that a darkness spell could physically interact with another, something that Lith had learned while fighting against Thrud Griffon . Ormr tested Lith's defenses with a series of quick jabs, only for his left arm to be trapped in the vise that Lith's grip was .

Ormr didn't even try to break free . Being his body shrouded in darkness magic, the longer Lith touched him, the weaker he would become . Ormr exploited the hold to throw a powerful right at Lith while pulling his own left back, to not give the enemy the opportunity to dodge .

Too bad that Solus's darkness infused glove protected Lith from the enemy armor, making it possible for him to crush Ormr's wrist simply by going all out as well . Lith twisted and pulled Ormr's arm, breaking his ulna and dislocating his shoulder at the same time .

The Awakened felt only a sting thanks to darkness fusion, but his body was dragged along nonetheless . Ormr's fist missed whereas Lith's found his target . It crushed the young Awakened's trachea, piercing through the neck until it pulverized the spine .

Ormr had made two huge mistakes . He had challenged Lith with confidence because he had mastered the God of Darkness spell, but Lith had long practiced the darkness element itself, not just a single spell .

As a healer, Lith used darkness as much as he used the light element . One of his favorite quotes from Professor Marth was: "He who knows how to heal also knows how to destroy . "

The second mistake had been assuming that since their build was similar, so it had to be their physical strength . Thanks to his last body refinement, Lith was now in-between veteran magical beasts' and Emperor Beasts' prowess, whereas his opponent would have struggled even against an adult magical beast .

Ormr was older than Lith, but the latter could still overpower him like an adult with a teenager . A snap of Lith's fingers conjured a small fireball that blasted Ormr's neck to pieces, making any attempt to heal him pointless .

The three remaining Awakened, of which only two were still able to fight since Horyu was still using Invigoration to recover from the friendly fire, decided that a dishonorable escape was better than an honorable death and Blinked away to safety .

Lith begged to differ, exploiting their temporary blindness to kill them one by one . He Blinked where the stunning redhead, the one with the weakest protections, would appear as his Checkmate Spears spell surrounded the other two exit points .

Lith appeared right behind the young woman's blind spot and Ruin made short work of her armor as well as of her heart, leaving a gaping hole where the pulsing organ had been until a second before .

The ice spears struck the two Awakened from every side, piercing their bodies . The onslaught made them lose their focus and all the spells they kept at the ready, leaving them helpless while the barrage of icicles ripped them to shreds .

After freeing Ruin from its meat scabbard, Lith performed a horizontal slash to decapitate the woman . Awakened were much sturdier than humans, needing but a breath to fully recover from a mortal wound .

Alas, Gaaron stopped Ruin with his Frostbound blade and conjured two emerald green barriers made of pure mana around the other two Awakened, saving their lives .

'Good gods! This guy has a bright blue core!' Solus warned Lith .

'Fuck me sideways! That's a spirit magic spell . The mana materialized around those two instead of spreading out of his body like usual . Solus, focus on the spell's matrix . I can't allow taking this guy alive to interrogate him later . ' Lith asked Solus .

Even though Gaaron couldn't read their minds, he was utterly offended by Lith's behavior . Gaaron was going all out right off the bat, spreading a bright blue aura much bigger than Lith's, yet the child was unfazed by his appearance .

Without a cloaking device, Lith was supposed to notice the arsenal the old mage had at his disposal, but he still acted as if it was all an annoyance . Gaaron tried to strike at Lith's neck, but the blades were glued together by Ruin's gravity field .

The increased weight also put enough strain on Gaaron's body to put him on his back foot .

"Don't Blink! Fly, you fools!" He yelled while using his other hand to regenerate the redhead enough to allow her to complete the job herself with Invigoration . He had moved the moment Ormr had died, yet it had almost not been fast enough .

Dimensional magic was too dangerous, not allowing him to distinguish friend from foe, whereas if his pupils flew, he could easily recognize them from their energy signature .

Being their swords locked and Gaaron's focus split, Lith pushed his advantage further . He emitted an inhuman roar that made the Trawn woods fell silent for kilometers while kicking with all of his strength at the enemy .

Gaaron's equipment was made of Orichalcum and was among the best pieces that money could buy in the Awakened community, yet he felt as if a horse had kicked him in the chest .

Lith hadn't struck him in the nuts because with darkness fusion pain wasn't a factor in their fight, while aiming for the head would have exposed him to a counter . The chest, instead, was the source of breathing and a major weak point in a battle between Awakened .

The air in Gaaron's lungs was squeezed out as a web of cracks appeared on his ribs .

'What the heck? A physical attack shouldn't be able to inflict this kind of damage upon me . ' Since darkness fusion negated the pain, most veteran Awakened kept a self-diagnostic spell always active in battle .

The lack of pain meant the inability of noticing potentially lethal wounds, like ruptured organs or punctured lungs . Lith's kick had caused no pain, but it had still caused his opponent to lose a good chunk of his stamina .

Pain is just a symptom of the damage a body sustains, just like fever is of infection .

Lith grinned noticing that his enemy had refused to give up on the sword, allowing his kick to hit deep . The other three Awakened took each a deep breath with Invigoration before flying away at break-neck speed, but he didn't mind .

All the pieces of the chessboard were already in place . He only needed to get rid of the king to end that nonsense .

Gaaron squinted his eyes and two rays of emerald green energy erupted from them aimed at Lith's pupils . Lith tilted his head to dodge them only to notice that they were able to follow their target .

He then used Ruin to block them, sustaining no damaged but freeing Gaaron from the gravity field and leaving both of his hands free .

'That was much more powerful than spirit magic as I use it . ' Lith thought . 'It's visible, but its speed and destructive power are greatly enhanced . Emerald green energy, huh?'

Lith had mixed feelings about his situation . On one hand, not only had the madman in front of him a stronger mana core, but he was also able to use an unknown kind of magic .
