Chapter 229 Labyrinth’s Encroachment Part 4
At that moment, Ramiris muttered silently,
“Ah, the isolation has been completed . ”
Suddenly, as if it was a trifling matter .
Hearing that, the surrounding people started moving hurriedly .
At the same time, Benimaru too–[Did you hear, you fools? From this point on, the labyrinth’s support effects are absent there . You won’t be resurrected if you die so brace yourselves! Rimuru-sama won’t permit any of you dying so act accordingly!]
He sent a thought transmission to all the allies intercepting Dino and the others on the 75th floor .
Everything was going according to plan .
Everyone who received the transmission showed no signs of unrest, they accepted it as completely natural .
Hearing that transmission, there was one who began their action .
Quietly and precisely .
The plan had entered the final phase .
Zero was gradually progressing the labyrinth’s encroachment .
Absorption rate had crossed 90% .
There was no feeling of joy in him, what pushed him forward was just the fact that accomplishing the task given to him was of utmost importance .
If the enemy gains immortality inside the labyrinth, they should just get rid of it .
That was Velda’s plan and that is precisely why the Ultimate Skill: Evil Dragon Lord Azi Dahaka existed .
It was an ability originally created to counter the labyrinth, an ability which can exhibit supreme dominance in an area .
On top of that, it wasn’t something incomplete like the ones given to Vega or Footman, with all the battle data uptil now, it was the complete version .
In front Aji Dahaka, which had turned into an ability close to the ‘One Who Eats Planets’, even Ramiris’ labyrinth couldn’t resist and ended up being trampled over by Zero .
(Hmm, less resistance than I had expected, eh? I guess that is also natural . Nobody would even be able to imagine an attack to the labyrinth directly . By snatching away the enemy’s base itself, I will purge these fools who sit cross-legged in their territory of absolute dominance . That will lure out Demon King Rimuru and we can take down all their forces at once . As expected of Velda-sama . It is a perfect plan—)
Abiding by Velda’s plan, he steadily went on encroaching in the enemy’s base, the labyrinth .
If he just takes away the labyrinth from them, he will also be able to grasp all authority inside the labyrinth .
“Foolish . ”
He ended up saying out unintentionally .
He wasn’t expecting a reply or anything but–
“Don’t be so full of yourself . Know that the likes of you will not be able to drop this labyrinth . ”
In the empty space, a cold voice resounded .
No, there was something .
Zero’s consciousness caught onto something that would normally be impossible to detect .
It was one butterfly .
A butterfly with a beautiful light was fluttering in the sky .
And then, the butterfly’s silhouette became hazy and slowly took the form of a person .
Into a warrior’s shape protected by jet-black adamantite .
“–Who is it? Floors above 60 are under my rule . I did not feel anyone invading . ”
“Simple . I have been here from the start, that’s all there is to it . ”
“…I see . That was a blind spot . You might have lived if you kept yourself hidden till the end . But, in the end, it’s only a matter of sooner or later . Become my food and die . ”
Zero thought that the small boy had come revealing himself because he was scared of being trapped inside .
Zero didn’t realize that the boy’s words sounded like he had realized Zero’s plans…
The encroachment of the labyrinth was going steadily with the rate over 90% . Turning the energy of the labyrinth into his inexhaustible supply, he would be able to create as many evil dragon beasts as he liked .
The few dragons he created all went towards their prey at once and disappeared with a flash of light .
