51 Initial assessmen

A plant“s life

Her eyes slowly turned red, filled with strong killing intent; it was good that they were closed, or her team members would get the wrong idea.

Some distance from the bloodthirsty Dahlia, Betsy was sitting down with a frown on her face, she could not identify it but something in her body felt different. As if this round of advancement, had an unexpected benefit for her, yet not finding the newly attained advantage was frustrating her. Betsy was in desperate need of more power; she was deeply afraid; scared of her shadow. She had not mentioned this to any of her team members, but since some time ago, she could feel a gaze on her, it was like her shadow had developed consciousness and looked at her. The glare did not have any malicious intent just simply following her around, but Betsy had a feeling that if she did not possess enough strength to confront this stalker, her life would be at risk.

Of course, this had been due to the influence of John on the relationship between the two sisters. He had leveraged their bond to gain entry to their minds, thus hinting Beryl's existence to her older sibling. He kept this going, as the test result of such test was indeed rare to behold.

With closed eyes, Beryl could not see her sister, but she was close enough to fend off any dangers. She needed to become stronger, for the sake of her idol, she would protect her light with all might. No mountain was too high, no ocean was too deep, no lava was too hot for her to cross, in order to save her beloved. She would change the world for her, so with a determined heart, Beryl forced her life force to move in a specific cycle. Coupled with her breathing rhythm, the remainder of energy moved to certain parts of her body, breaking and rebuilding them slowly forming a new person, more vigorous than before. She kept at this until feeling extremely exhausted, showcasing her successful cultivation session; looking at the gains, she noticed a small sub-breakthrough. She murmured to herself:

"Soon it will be the time that I can stand beside my idol, embrace her and never let go. We shall be one from then till the end of time"

John valued Beryl's improvement over Alvin, even though they both had the same class of profession. The reason for that was, that her session, although crude in appearance, had a more natural tone and would not put a strain on certain organs. Just a general pressure on her body as a whole, which John noticed to be suffering from damaged longevity. It seemed, attaining power in this world came at a great cost, that was the order of the world, one had to give before receiving benefits. He had also used underhanded means to access her mind, making Beryl's personality more twisted with each passing moment. He predicted if left alone, considering both of their progress rates, Beryl would shorten the distance between them slowly and by the end, after a fight, she would either imprison or kill Betsy to take her place.


After the initial assessment, John performed a scan of their new stats, while also looking for any anomalies.
