Inhuman Warlock - Chapter 650 - 650: The Bond
A sword came crashing down, slicing the head.
“There he goes.”
A smirk formed on the lips of the person who had just taken a life.
“Ah, Did we really need to stop to kill him? Don’t we have more important things to consider?” Another voice came from behind.
“Worry about what? The storm stopped. We don’t have any reason to hide in the Headquarters anymore,” The first man said, wiping the blood from his sword on the cloth of the Warlock Council member he had just killed.
“Who knew we would still miss some of them despite checking everywhere. These rats are really sneaky,” he added, smiling.
The two of them were Uprising members that were going back when they noticed a Warlock Council member hiding behind a dumpster. They couldn’t help but take him out as well.
“Still, I do wonder why that lightning storm came. Maybe Lucifer was testing something? In any case, we’ll know later. It’s not like he’ll be going anywhere,” the man smiled as he started walking back towards the Warlock Council headquarters.
A chopper was flying towards the capital city of Zeston when the pilot noticed the bad weather above the city. The entire city was surrounded by dark clouds.
It was still fine, but when he noticed the black lightning fall around the city, even he grew stunned. It didn’t look safe to enter the city in such weather.
She decided to inform Andrim and his men about this strange phenomenon. Unfortunately, he was a bit too late.
Before he could do anything, Andrim already understood what was wrong as he saw four people appear in his chopper.
All four of them went in different directions to attack a different person.
“You dare?!” Andrim stood up, enraged. His body started bulking up.
“There is nothing we don’t dare,” A sweet and melodious voice fell in his ears as Milena teleported behind him. A sword came, slicing Andrim in half without giving him a chance.
Both halves of his body dropped to the ground.
In the meantime, Yaliza and the others had already killed the rest of them.
“Well, that was easier than I thought,” Salazar let out, observing the dead bodies.
He walked to the pilot and told him that the helicopter was under their control now and told him to take it straight to the Warlock Headquarters.
“Arthur, we can go back and inform the others that it’s over. I don’t want them to attack the helicopter. It is a good resource we might need.”
He turned to Yaliza. “You stay in the helicopter and come with it.”
Arthur disappeared, taking Salazar with him. They went straight to Cassius and others that he was over and that they were done.
Milena also disappeared, leaving Yaliza behind with the pilot to safely escort the bodies back for Lucifer.
Everyone was happy after hearing that the battle was safely won without any casualties.
“Good! Now take us back to the base! I want to see what happened to Lucifer right away!” Cassius said, still concerned.
Fortunately, the lightning phenomenon had stopped, but still, he wasn’t at ease. There was a constant feeling in his heart that something really wrong was happening. He didn’t want to be too late if Lucifer needed his help.
“Alright. I can only take two. The rest of you shall walk,” Arthur said, reaching out his hand.
His one hand was held by Cassius while the other was held by Salazar.
Milena, on the other hand, chose to bring two Nobles, Aslima and Giani, with her.
Even Arthur and Milena didn’t know about their timing and what was actually going on back at the Warlock Council Headquarters.
Yasmine was still in shock about what Aira was saying. Before she could come out of her daze, she noticed that Aira had already attacked Lucifer.
“Stop!” She yelled, but his scream fell on deaf ears as Aira didn’t seem like she wanted to stop.
Yasmine decided to stop Aira herself by using Energy Negation, but before he could, she noticed that more people had arrived.
Arthur had arrived with Salazar and Cassius. All three of them grew shocked at the sight that greeted them. Aira was attacking Lucifer.
All three of them got into action.
Cassius pulled out his sword to slice Aira in half. Arthur teleported to take Lucifer away, and Salazar slowed down time.
The fastest reaction belonged to Salazar as he slowed down time and ran to Aira.
The time was so slow that it looked like Salazar had teleported behind Aira instead. He raised his sword, swinging it.
Aira’s sword was only halfway when Salazar’s sword sliced his neck. His head slowly started tilting towards the left, slowly as she was still affected in the time domain.
In the meantime, her sword still continued its downward motion.
Salazar reached out his hand to hold the wrist of Aira to stop her sword, but he didn’t need to as he noticed that Arthur had already appeared. He held Lucifer and disappeared.
Salazar also stopped his idea of stopping the sword now that there was no need to. But he did jump sideways, noticing the attack of Cassius.
He dropped to the ground, avoiding the attack of Cassius, which further sliced Aira in half from her waist
Not even a single second had passed, and Aira was already sliced in half for even attempting to hurt Lucifer. That was the power of the bond that Lucifer had formed with his team members, even without realizing it.
Everything was done. Salazar stopped his time domain. The head of Aira rolled to the left, falling. At the same time, the top half of her body fell to the right.
Soon, her waist and her legs also followed suit. Aira didn’t even realize how fast it had happened. She didn’t even have the time to close her eyes, and she was already dead, all because she wanted to kill Lucifer.
Arthur appeared near the sofa, keeping Lucifer’s body there before holding his chest. His heartbeat was still beating fast.
“You betraying bastards! Step away from him if you don’t want to die!” Cassius roared at Arthur, still enraged at what he saw.
“Look, I know you are upset, but believe me. We don’t want to hurt him. Just give me a chance to investigate! If I wanted to hurt, why would I save him?!” Arthur replied, smiling wryly.
He could understand why they were impatient as well.
“Arthur, please step away from Lucifer!” Salazar also agreed with Cassius. “Don’t make us do something!”
“If we weren’t here on time, your people would have killed him! We don’t even know what they did to him already to bring him in that condition! Step away and don’t force us!” Cassius yelled. “This is the last warning!”
It was now that Milena also appeared to find the Warlocks with their swords raised towards Arthur.
