Starting With 3 S-Class Talents - chapter 420
Vincent looked at Sophia who was leaning on him and could not help but feel disgusted. However, he did not push Sophia away. Instead, he smiled and said, “Then we can set off now!”
After saying that, Vincent waved his hand in front of him casually, and a space door instantly opened.
It was the first time that Sophia had seen such a magical ability, so she was very curious. She looked at the tunnel inside the space door.
Vincent took the opportunity to turn his head to look at Dave behind him and gave him a very obscure look.
Just as Dave nodded slightly, Sophia suddenly looked away and turned to Vincent. She said, “Well, don’t keep me in suspense anymore. What I need to see is that you have the ability to collect the Origin Divine Earth!”
Vincent nodded and pulled Sophia into the space tunnel. He then took Sophia to the depths of the underground by performing space jump..
“Amazing! This is amazing! With this ability, we can excavate the Origin Divine Earth to the maximum!”
Sophia’s eyes were filled with a strange light. She looked at the rock layers outside the space tunnel and sighed with joy.
Vincent stood beside Sophia and said softly, “Now you should believe me. I have the ability to help you replace Jessica, right?”
Sophia nodded and smiled proudly. She turned to Vincent and said, “I know that Jessica is dead. It seems like you must have killed her yourself!”
Vincent widened his eyes to show that he was very surprised. He asked, “How do you know?”
Sophia smiled charmingly and winked at Vincent. She said, “Every man who has sex with me will have a connection with me, and they won’t even notice it! A few days ago, I realized that Jessica was dead, so I told Darren to lead the soldiers out of the city to find Origin Divine Earth so that he could take the opportunity to inherit Jessica’s position!”
“What a magical ability!”
Vincent sighed softly, his eyes flashing with deep disgust. Every word that this woman uttered made him feel extremely disgusted. However, he had to try his best to stall for time, because he had to fight for an opportunity for Dave and Melissa who were on the ground!
After hearing Vincent’s insincere praise, Sophia’s smile could not help but become even more charming. She said to Vincent, “I know that you have only shown me a part of your ability, but so far, it is still far from reaching the level of being able to obtain the Origin Divine Earth. I wonder if you can work harder and broaden my horizons?”
Vincent nodded and agreed happily, “As you wish!”
Vincent once again controlled the space tunnel and sank deep underground.
Dave and Melissa were free temporarily. Jessica had gone deep underground with Vincent and there were no guards around. Dave and Melissa looked up at the black ball of light in the sky.
Dave said with a serious face, “We have to find a way to stop this spell so that Vincent can control Sophia without any worry!”
Melissa shook her head and said with disdain, “Although Sophia is an extremely shameless woman, she is right about one thing. Right now, you have no power at all and are no different from trash. How can you destroy her spell?”
After hearing Melissa doubting him, Dave said with confidence, “Because I have an ability that is far better than the elves! Today, I will show you what it means to modify authority!”
Melissa looked at Dave in confusion, indicating that Dave could start showing off.
Dave raised his hand to point at the sky and said softly, “Modify and disperse!”
A breeze blew past, but nothing changed in the sky.
Melissa looked at the statue-like Dave. She spread out her hands and made a mocking gesture.
Dave gritted his teeth and cast the modification authority a few more times in a fit of pique. However, the ball of light in the sky was still there. There was no change at all.
Melissa finally could not stand it anymore. She frowned and said to Dave, “Have you performed enough? We don’t have the time!”
Dave stomped his feet angrily and said, “It must be because I don’t have enough psionic power in my body. Although I can use the modification authority, I can’t make large-scale changes. This is unless I can obtain enough psionic power in a short period of time or do some minor changes to destroy Sophia’s spell!”
After hearing that, Melissa finally stopped mocking Dave and went up to ask, “Then, can I transfer my power to you?”
Dave shook his head repeatedly and said, “No! You’re a Dark Elf, and you have the aura of the Demon World in your body. Gajero has just taken away my power. If the aura of the Demon World enters my body again, I’ll definitely die!”
After hearing that, Melissa suddenly had an inspiration and asked, “Then, can you teach me that so-called modification authority, and let me perform it?”
The corners of Dave’s mouth trembled slightly, and he shook his head again. He replied, “That’s impossible! Only Vincent has the method to teach the power of modification authority. I can only perform it freely, but I can’t teach others!”
“Then after all that, we still have no way to solve the problem?”
Melissa looked at Dave helplessly. She felt the wound on her shoulder hurt from anger.
Dave thought for a moment and said, “There’s still one last way, but I don’t know how long Vincent can stall her!”
Melissa replied in a hurry, “Let’s try it first. As long as Vincent has not brought Sophia back, we still have a chance!”
Dave nodded and said to Melissa, “There is a large amount of undigested energy in my body. Now, I have to devour as much energy as possible to have a chance to activate the power of modification!”
Melissa thought for a moment and realized that there was no other way. She could only nod and say, “Then go to the side hall and cultivate for the time being. I’ll guard the courtyard for you!”
Without saying anything else, Dave turned around and walked into the side hall. He sat cross-legged and enter a meditative state.
There was still a large amount of dark golden energy in Dave’s body at the moment. This energy was like a living metal that was completely unusable by him. However, there was a huge amount of power contained within it. It was the purest power left behind by the remains of the Elf King.
Previously, when Dave was using the aura of the Demon World to devour this power, it was always very difficult. He was like an unarmed worker developing a gold mine by himself. He could only smash it with his fists and gnaw it with his teeth. The effect was very little, and he could only get some scattered gold.
Therefore, Dave was uncertain about how much power he could absorb in a short period of time.
Just as he thought of digesting the energy, the dark golden energy in his body suddenly exploded like a fountain, disintegrating into the purest psionic power. The power merged with Dave’s body.
Dave was frowning as he endured the intense pain. He felt his body changing little by little, and his originally exhausted body was once again filled with energy. However, what filled his body was no longer the disturbing aura of the Demon World. Instead, it was an extreme coldness. It was the power that represented blackness!
When Dave opened his eyes again, he found out that the psionic power in his body was once again filled. Moreover, his strength had broken through, and he had advanced to a level 32 creature.
“This is really too magical! So, the reason why I had difficulty previously was that the demonic aura in my body was resisting the energy from the Elf King’s remains. After the demonic aura was taken away from me and because I am also an elf, I had managed to achieve perfect compatibility with the Elf King’s energy. This is really a blessing in disguise!”
After noticing the changes in his body, Dave immediately understood what was going on. He was very moved and happy. He stood up and walked out of the side hall quickly. He looked at Melissa who was guarding the courtyard with an anxious expression.
When Melissa heard the movement behind her, she turned to look at Dave. She could not help but show a surprised expression. She sighed repeatedly and said, “You, you, how did you become like this?”
Dave looked at Melissa in confusion and asked, “What did I become?”
Melissa looked at Dave up and down and frowned as she said, “You have black hair, black eyes, and the skin all over your body is a little dull. Did you become…”
“A Black Elf!”
Dave exclaimed in surprise after hearing the changes that had happened to him
He had never thought that after absorbing the Black Elf King’s energy, he would directly become a Black Elf!
However, based on Vincent’s previous speculation, the Black Elf King had already died at the hands of Gajero, and his divine spark was also extracted by him. As a result, there would no longer be any Black Elves in the Elf Race. Yet, Dave had advanced to become a unique Black Elf although the Black Elf King was already dead!
Dave muttered to himself in a daze, “This is… a gift from the Elf King?”
Melissa suddenly came back to her senses and quickly pulled Dave to the center of the temple. She pointed at the black ball of light in the sky and said, “You’ve already been in there for three hours. You need to disarm that ball of light now! Vincent will be back with Sophia soon!”
Dave said confidently, “Leave the rest to me!”
Melissa took two steps back and looked at Dave without any expectation silently. This was because from the moment she met Dave, he had not been able to do anything!
When fighting against the soldiers of Serene Spring City, he was almost surrounded and killed. If it was not for Vincent’s timely action, Dave would have been a prisoner!
After arriving at Serene Spring City, Dave fought against Sophia again. In the end, he was directly deprived of his power and almost became crippled!
Therefore, Melissa only thought of Dave as a last resort. She did not place any expectations on him at all.
Dave once again raised his hand and pointed at the black ball of light in the sky. In a deep voice, he shouted, “Modify and disappear!”
A breeze blew past, and the black ball of light in the sky swayed slightly.
Melissa was about to shake her head helplessly when the black ball of light in the sky started to fade. It disappeared into the air completely without leaving a trace behind.
Melissa widened her eyes and sighed in surprise, “It worked!”
Dave felt like he was finally able to hold his head up high. He said with an unfathomable expression, “Since the danger has been eliminated and the soldiers in the city will not act for the time being, then we should quickly get rid of the soldiers on the streets so that when Vincent comes back, we can directly control Sophia!”
Melissa nodded and said, “That makes sense, but I’m injured, so I can only rely on you for the rest!”
Dave picked up his knife with confidence and said, “Then watch carefully!”
Dave walked out of the temple and looked at the soldiers waiting for Sophia’s orders on both sides of the street. He strode over.
At the same time, Vincent had been dealing with Sophia underground for a long time. Not only did he satisfy Sophia’s various requests in the space tunnel, but he also took the initiative to show her the ability to quickly sink and jump through space. He showed her all the methods that he had developed.
Sophia, on the other hand, praised Vincent again and again with a face full of joy. Her words were also more explicit.
Sophia pressed her hands on Vincent’s chest and slowly slid them to his shoulders. She sighed softly, “I really didn’t expect you to be such a powerful and mysterious man. It really makes me want to sacrifice myself for you! If you don’t mind, I really want to give you a good reward here!”
Vincent was standing on the spot like a statue. He really wanted to go back to the ground and check if Dave had dealt with the spell in the air. He wanted to then throw the flirtatious Sophia into the sky!
At that moment, Sophia’s expression suddenly changed. She pushed Vincent away.
She glared at Vincent and shouted, “B*stard, how dare you lie to me?”
Vincent spread his hands in confusion. He smiled and said, “What? How did I lie to you?”
Sophia was about to accuse Vincent of going back on his words, but then she stopped because she suddenly realized that she had no bargaining chips to restrain Vincent!
As the space was created by Vincent, she could not resist Vincent’s attack at all. Once she told him that the black light had dissipated, only death would await her!
Therefore, she could only remain silent and try her best to keep calm with Vincent. If she could think of a way for Vincent to bring her back to the ground, perhaps everything would turn around!
Sophia immediately adjusted her expression and said with a seductive look, “It’s nothing. It’s just that I’ve been taking the initiative for so long, but you didn’t react at all. So, I wanted to change the atmosphere and see if I can arouse your excitement!”
Vincent could tell what was going on based on Sophia’s reaction. The anger in Sophia’s eyes was not faked. This meant that the spell on the ground had been completely eliminated. There was no longer a need for him to be controlled!
Vincent said to Sophia with a cold smile, “Don’t worry. No matter how many tricks you play, I won’t be interested in you! Unless you can take your own head off and give it to me!”
Sophia’s eyes focused, and her whole body trembled subconsciously. Her eyes were full of fear, but she still forced herself to calm down and smile. She said to Vincent, “Well, I’ve seen everything that needs to be seen. I’m very satisfied with your ability. Now let’s go back to the ground!”
Vincent shook his head and raised his hand to hold the hilt of his knife gently. He smiled and said, “Are we going back already? Isn’t that a little disappointing? Your suggestion just now was actually quite good. Maybe we can stay here for a little while longer and do something different!”
Sophia swallowed her saliva nervously. Of course, she knew that Vincent was not flirting with her. He wanted to kill her with the sword-like weapon on his waist!
Sophia took a few steps back, trying to increase the distance between her and Vincent.
However, after just a thought from Vincent, Sophia’s feet changed instantly. No matter how she retreated, she always stayed the same distance as Vincent, as if she was walking on the same spot.
“Stop running. You won’t be able to escape from me!”
Vincent sighed in a deep voice and slowly pulled out his Return Journey of the Dead from his waist.
After seeing this, Sophia finally lost her charming expression and quickly knelt at Vincent’s feet. With tears in her eyes, she begged, “Don’t kill me! Please don’t kill me. As long as you let me live, I’ll still be very useful to you. I can control the soldiers of Serene Spring City, and I can please you. I can even tell you Darren’s whereabouts! As long as you don’t kill me, I’ll do anything!”
After hearing what she said, Vincent slowly put down the blade in his hand and asked indifferently, “Now you finally want to tell me where Darren is?”
Sophia nodded repeatedly and said, “Darren is currently outside of Serene Spring City. He is Jessica’s most outstanding assistant. Therefore, he knows the location where Jessica collects the Origin Divine Earth. Right now, he is trying to obtain the Origin Divine Earth. As long as he succeeds, he can become the new apostle and inherit Jessica’s position completely!”
“Alright, take me to him now!”
Vincent was worried that Darren, who was outside the city, would find a way to collect the Origin Divine Earth in advance, so he immediately ordered Sophia to bring him to see Darren.
Sophia was delighted and quickly said, “Yes, of course! Take me back to the ground now, and I will lead the entire city to escort you to find Darren!”
Vincent shook his head and smiled. He replied, “No need. If you want to hurry, you can do it in the space tunnel. Don’t even think about going back and giving orders!”
Sophia knew that Vincent had seen through her purpose, so she stopped crying. She slowly stood up whilst holding the magic staff with both hands. She snorted and said, “If that’s the case, then kill me! If I can’t survive, you can forget about finding Darren. At least he still has the possibility to avenge me. Otherwise, the two of us can only die in your hands!”
Vincent smiled slightly and said with disdain, “If that’s the case, then have you thought of how you wanted to die?”
“Of course, to die in battle!”
Sophia answered without hesitation. She raised her magic staff and directly slapped it at Vincent, while chanting, “My incomparably beloved Lord, please bestow your grace and take me out of this space!”
When Vincent blocked the staff with his knife, he saw a black light emerge from Sophia’s body, wrapping her body to fly out of the space tunnel.
Vincent looked at Sophia who had left the space tunnel. He was not in a hurry to chase after her. Instead, he sighed confidently, “This is a deep rock layer 100,000 meters below the ground. I want to see how long you can run!”
It seems that Jessica may actually be male and not female based on this statement. However, we are uncertain of the true intention of the author but this is the best interpretation we have of this line at the moment. If there are any updates in the future, we will highlight them accordingly.
