Into The Portal: Monster Invasion Chapter 112
It brought to my attention that the Chapter 101 and 102 were same. I do remember posting the chapters, but probably mixed up when I reposted the edited versions. So, please check if you read the same chapter twice. Thank you, and have fun.
Miles wasn't a fool to play with his enemy, but he was stalling on purpose. Xavic and Zall were fighting in their own battle, and he wanted to see how they would react. If they still insisted on not hurting people who were trying to kill them, he would try to convince them to quit this line of work. Zall was still acceptable after all, he was a tank, but Xavic needed to learn how to kill.
Miles watched while keeping Takeji in his vision. Xavic was fighting against the girl, and she was displaying similar powers to Takeji. She could dash in a certain direction with unbelievable speed, even faster than Miles and Takeji, but she wasn't as flexible.. When she used her power, she could only move in one direction.
She was harassing Xavic with a short sword in her hand. Although Xavic was uninjured as well and their fights were nowhere close to the end.
Zall, on the other hand, was seated on the ground and his hand raised to protect his head. Jack was spraying fire on his body from his hands, but it was almost like spring wind to Zall who wasn't even flinching. "Are you a demon?! Why don't you burn already!"
Miles looked at them with a sigh. Zall's defense was like nothing he had seen before. Even at the top of his strength, he couldn't leave a mark on his body. Let alone those puny flames.
After all, Zall was sturdy enough to wrestle with high-tier bears. His defenses couldn't be by passed by monsters at his tier. Jack was only a mid-tier hunter. His flames wouldn't even hurt Zall, let alone kill him.
"Looks like I have to play a little longer," Miles murmured as he dodged the attack aiming at his neck. After he dodged, he kicked Takeji on his stomach. The latter threw up whatever he was holding in his stomach.
"Can't you just sit and watch?" Miles asked lackadaisically.
"Fight me, bastard!"
"Looks like I cannot convince you to sit back," Miles said helplessly and took a step to his left. The dagger was aiming at the right side of the chest, so this movement caused him to dodge the attack perfectly. His sword, pointing at the ground, started to rise in the speed of light, and in no time at all, met with skin and bone.
Humans in G-Circle had weak bodies, so a sword swung with Miles's full strength made a clean cut at Takeji's arm. The arm holding the dagger flew in the air and, with a thud, fell to the ground. Takeji fell with the arm but a little further away. He held the stump of his arm as he looked at the member on the ground. His pupils were dilated, and disbelief was all over his face.
"You You cut off my arm!" He said hysterically. "You are a dead man! Dead! You are dead!"
"Shut up, fool." Miles approached the arm and removed the dagger and wristwatch from it.
"Oni, self detonate!" Takeji shouted with pain on his face. Both from getting his arm cut off and ordering his AI companion to self detonate itself.
"Yeah, right." Miles rolled his eyes and reached out a few buttons at the bottom of the watch. All wristwatches had emergency shut-off buttons. Humanity never trusted Mama Hill wholeheartedly, and even to their own wristwatches. Even Coin had one despite how much Miles trusted him. It wasn't optional.
When Miles touched the buttons, the screen went black, and he bagged the wristwatch. "Now, we watch."
Xavic was still struggling against the girl. He now had a few bleeding wounds and a grimace on his face. But Miles could see his eyes were getting more resolute. Instead of blindly firing his attacks, he was keeping them in his hand longer.
"Brother!" Morimo saw his brother lying on the ground, holding his hand, crying in panic. Xavic was able to catch her off guard and hit her with lightning. Morimo screamed in pain and fell to the ground, convulsing.
"Zall!" Xavic was about to run to help Zall, but Miles stopped him.
"He is fine. That buffoon can't hurt him even in thousands of years. Finish her."
"But" Xavic stuttered.
"Were her attacks to kill you or stop you?"
"To kill me." Xavic looked at the ground, hesitant.
"I will not force you, Xavic. You and Zall are good fellas, a rare few on Earth, but if you can't kill her, I will do my best to prevent you from coming to the Portal World ever again." Miles looked at him without any sympathy.
It wasn't that hard to prevent him from entering Portal World. Miles was, after all, a Cross. Although he would owe his family, he could still achieve it.
"I want to protect you and Zall. If I have to throw away my heart to do that, I solemnly swear that I shall do so!" Although his words were resolute, his face was wet from tears, and his hands were shaking. Zall looked at Xavic with a grimace and at Miles with resentment.
Miles ignored the giant and looked at Xavic and the girl. Xavic approached with heavy steps and the sword in his hand. It was a forged weapon but enough to kill the girl. The girl looked at the approaching Xavic with trepidation.
With each step, the marks Xavic left on the ground got deeper, and his eyes got more listless. He clutched the sword hard until his fingers turned white. His racing heart calmed, but his mood was so heavy. He didn't even breathe once.
Zall stopped covering his face and looked at his best friend with tears in his eyes. He was worried Xavic would never be the same, but he knew Xavic was doing it for him. He wouldn't hate him just because he killed another person. Zall cared for all creatures all the same. And he helped Xavic to kill monsters, a dead human wouldn't change a thing. He was just worried that in Xavic's heart, it would create a hole.
When Xavic was in front of the girl, his listless eyes looked at her face to carve it in his mind for the rest of his life. He raised his hand to stab the girl in the throat. But the girl moved all of a sudden. An orb appeared in her hand, and while she was swinging her arm, the orb turned into a sword. It was only a few centimeters away from Xavic's head, a sword pierced the girl's hand and fastened it up to the ground.
"You really think I fell for your acting?" Miles smiled like a devil and rotated the sword still stuck in her hand. She screamed in pain.
"Do it!" Miles looked at Xavic and said with a stern voice. Xavic looked at Miles with complicated feelings, then brought the sword to the crying girl's throat. It stabbed through the flesh and killed the girl in one move.
Miles looked at the girl and made sure she was dead before deactivating her wristwatch too. After that, he walked to the soulless Xavic and hugged him. "Sorry for forcing you to do this, but this is for your own good." He said silently before letting him go.
He walked to Jack and killed him too. After he made sure there were no other dangers, he walked to the Takeji to interrogate the bastard.
