TALE OF THE COLD EMPEROR - Season 1 Episode 59
Athan then formed and threw it towards the Big white stone.
[ Attack Power: 200+ ]
[Congratulations You have passed the 31st floor, Reward 1 point.]
” Oh…1 point directly? ” Athan was surprised to get 1 point right after passing the 31st floor.
Soon after that, He reached the 32nd floor.
[ Please form your most powerful defensive spell and withstand the attacks that will be thrown at you in 10 seconds and you are only allowed to use one defensive spell. ]
‘ Should I use or ? ‘
‘ Nevermind I’ll just make a as Light element will be able to withstand attacks of other elements better but it will have trouble against Dark Element…’ Thinking for a few seconds, He decided, ‘ Fvck it, I’ll go with ‘
[ Attacks incoming, Withstand attacks for 1 minute ]
Athan had finished forming a thick around him when he heard about Attack incoming, He had poured more than half of his Light energy into this barrier.
A fireball hit the from behind him.
Right after that, A rain of Ice shards fell from the sky on his barrier.
Just like this, Many attacks of different elements hit the barrier.
There were some cracks on the barrier but it was still holding on.
Athan watched many attacks hit the barrier as it formed more and more cracks.
Athan muttered, “The last attack. ”
An X shaped energy blade with dark and green color came in front of him and hit the barrier.
The cracks increased a lot and his barrier was on verge of cracking apart.
[ Congratulations!! you have passed the 32nd floor. Reward 1 point. ]
” Phew, It’s good that I didn’t hold back on using Light energy. ” Athan spoke as he wiped his non-existent sweat.
After passing the stage, the floor elevated, and he arrived on the 33rd floor.
[ To pass this floor, You have to dodge all the incoming attacks using a single support spell for 1 minute. The attacks will start in 10 seconds. ]
[ Attacks Incoming ]
Athan had already formed his and was prepared to dodge the attacks.
The first attack came in front of him which he dodged easily, The second attack came from behind him, and just as he was going to dodge to the right side, He sensed another attacking coming from that direction.
” So that’s how it rolls huh. Well, Bring on it! ”
He then fully focused on dodging as the attacks were getting faster and the frequency of incoming attacks were also increasing.
[ Congratulations! You have passed the 33rd floor. Reward 1 point. ]
‘ Damn, That was tiring. ‘ Taking a breath, Athan thought, ‘ The last few seconds were tough as four attacks arriving from different directions and I had to find a perfect spot to dodge them, It seems that the challenges are getting harder. ‘
Passing the stage, The flood he was on elevated as he arrived on the 34th floor.
[ Please answer a question, If you can correctly Answer it then you will be able to pass this floor. ‘
Hearing the challenge of this floor, Athan frowned and muttered, ” A question-answer challenge? what the fuvck…”
[ You have successfully raided an Alien spaceship that contains an ” important thing ” that can benefit all humanities if you can bring that thing to any of the partners of Union, But your loved one or loved ones are held hostages by the Aliens on another spaceship and they demand that you return the ” important thing ” back to them, What would you do? Will you bring back the ” important thing ” to Cluster Union or return the ” important thing ” back to the Alien ship in exchange for your loved one or loved ones? ]
Athan’s frown eased after seeing the question and smirked, ‘ So it’s this type of question, here I thought that the question might be related to information that I do not know of. ‘
Clearing his throat, Athan answered, ” My Answer is….”
[ You have failed to pass the 34th floor but since your answer was also a possibility and bold, You will receive 10 points as rewards. ]
” What the fvck…If my answer is good enough to get me 10 points then you should just pass me. ”
Right after that, The scenery changed in front of him as he arrived back on the grassy plains.
[ Point Shop ]: 42.47 points.
Athan looked at the points and opened the [ Point Shop ].
The items on page 2 of the [ Point Shop ] were similar to the items on page 1, but each of the items on page 2 had stars beside their names.
[ Essense Conversing Pill ]- ★
[ Nikani Sword of Blue Lotus ]- ★★
[ Water Intent Slate ]- ★★
[ Condensation Gate Creation Pill ]- ★
The price of items on page 2 ranged from 20 points to 100 points and the maximum stars were also 2.
The costliest items were of course Intent Slates and artifacts.
He just looked at those items and was not planning to buy any so after looking at those items, He sat down in mediation and started to comprehend the intermediate Level of Wind intent.
After who knows how long, An announcement reverberated.
[ The 2nd Round is officially over and the last round will start after 2 hours. ]
Athan opened his eyes and thought, ‘ 2 hours…..That should be barely enough for me to comprehend the Intermediate Level of Air Intent as I’m very close to achieving it already ‘
He then noticed the presence of Tiana and smiled as he turned his head towards her, ‘ She must be here for some time but didn’t disturb me as I was in meditation. ‘
Tiana asked with anticipation seeing Athan looking at her, ” How many floors did you climb? ”
Athan shook his head and answered in a helpless tone, “I failed to pass the 34th floor but they gave me 10 points for my answer. I don’t get how they reach that conclusion, They failed me but gave me 10 points, How weird. ”
He then asked Tiana, ” what about you? ”
Tiana smiled wryly and said, ” I barely passed the 30th floor by utilizing almost all of the spells I inherited from the Blazolt Flower and I was running very low on energies after that, As for that [ Blazing Railgun ] I got from the stone, It was a good weapon but not suitable in Tower of Challange because of its consumption of energy. ”
” Fortunately, the challenge of the 31st floor was easy because of my Lightning Inferno Energy but I could not pass the 32nd floor because my defensive spell could not withstand all the attacks due to running low on Lightning Inferno Energy. ”
She then thought worriedly, ‘ I hope I can pass the 3rd round too because if I don’t then Athan might also choose to not enroll into The Myriad Stars Academy, and if he really decided to stay behind due to my failure, then….’
She looked at Athan who was also looking at her with a smile.
” What are you thinking? ” Athan asked seeing Tiana who was dazed as if she was thinking something.
Tiana shook her head and spoke, ” Nothing. ”
‘ Athan, You will definitely soar to the peak of this world and I will not let myself become a chain that will bind you from doing that, So If it comes to that…..Then I will free you. ‘
‘ But I have no plan of going down without a fight, I will do more than my best just so that I can accompany you. ‘
She then smiled and said to Athan, ” I was just thinking about what to buy from the shop, I want to strengthen myself for the 3rd round. ”
” Oh….” Athan started thinking about ways to strengthen Tiana’s current powers.
He first looked at her stats and after that, he said, ” You have enough spells of all types because of Blazolt Flower, and as for energies, Your Fire, Lightning, Water, and Lightning Inferno can become full after we recover here, So the only area you can improve on currently is your body. ”
After that, he suggested, ” I think you should buy those pills from Page 1 of Point shop and bring your Strength and Constitution to 10, Those pills are 5 points each so you can also afford it. ”
Tiana nodded her head in agreement as she spoke, ” I was also thinking of that, It’s best to use points to strengthen myself as much as I can so that I can increase the chances of passing the last round. ”
After that, Tiana bought two pills and ate them before sitting in meditation and Athan also started to comprehend the Intermediate Level of Air Intent as he let his consciousness sit inside the Black Whirlpool.
A few hours ago inside the captain’s office.
[ My answer is that since ” important thing ” is also very important for them, I will demand them to release my loved ones in exchange for allowing myself to be detained by them along with the ” important thing ” After they bring me into their ship I will destroy them and also bring the ” important thing ” back to cluster union. ]
The Captain had a smile on his face as he thought, ‘ That kid’s answer was surely interesting, Either he is ignorant or stupid, But his answer is possible with enough strength, Ability, and boldness. ‘
He then stretched his hands and spoke, ” It’s always fun to read the answers of these kids, tell me if there are any other unorthodox answers. ”
[ Aye aye Captain. ]
