Chapter 71 – Area E
The arrow I released at the man in black was deflected by the black bullet he shot.
So is it useless….? Then I just need to not stop trying.
I’ll just continue to rain attacks to glean more information about that weapon’s capability.
[Chi, such a nuisance.]
The omega slime kept multiplying. It may hit over 100 in numbers by the evening.
Rather than the omega slimes, I had to stop that man in black who was the root of this problem….
Though I understood that I couldn’t ignore it either, especially if it multiplied to such an extent.
[Really a huge nuisance.]
The omega slimes had even obstructed my line of sight to that man in black. The translucent gigantic blobs had actually surrounded me. Meanwhile, that guy hadn’t even budged a single step from where he stood.
It’s a quite frightening situation.
I don’t think I can get out of this place while remaining unscathed.
But he’s sorely mistaken if he thought that this will stop me. I’m only just begun here.
How cute you are, aren’t you? Just as I expected, the omega slimes suddenly surged towards me all at once. There was no room to escape… or was there….?
The acidic liquid laced with corrosive magic that could melt me without leaving any trace, sprayed from all directions.
Greed shouted to me, seemingly a little restless.
『Fate! Where is your countermeasure, Fate！』
My sight turned blurry. But I marched on.
I continued walking toward the man in black through every omega slimes.
[Fuー, it’s a bit bothersome to not be able to breath.]
『You……have already used it』
[It’s thanks to Gluttony skill]
The ground I had stepped on was blackened, rotting due to decay. And any omega slime which struck me collapsed in the same way.
I used this magic I got earlier and overpowered the omega slime’s own corrosion magic and acidic body liquid by using more magic power than they could.
[These omega slimes are no longer a threat to me anymore.]
The inorganic voice began to resound in my head, telling me that I had killed something. Here was where the problem began.
《Gluttony Skill Activated》
《Durability+133600000, Strength+87600000, Magic+119830000, Spirit+112480000, Agility+53470000 will be applied to your stats》
I had my stats increased by over 100 million, and in addition to that, I had eaten 10 crown tier monsters at the same time.
I felt the repercussion ten times greater than when I ate only one omega slime.
Hahahahah……this is bad…… the time when I went berserk after I killed Assault Kobold back on Heart’s Territory crossed in my mind.
No, it’s even worse than back then.
The vision on my right eye had turned red.
The gluttony skill was running rampant. I clenched my jaw while staring at the blood falling on the ground.
[Not nearly enough, there is still more to eat]
『Cut it out, it’s impossible』
[Don’t say that. I have to at least hear his voice.]
Even so, the man in black still hadn’t budge. I thought his attitude would change after seeing how easily I took care of the omega slime, so is it still within his margin of expectation?
Greed warned me once again.
『That guy, I think he’s waiting for you to become unable to eat anymore. It’s the omega slime after all.』
[Before that happens, my stats will skyrocket.]
『No, that will depend on what will you do next』
I tried to listen to Greed, but was distracted by another attack from the omega slime.
Dammit. I kept eating even as I sensed that my compatibility with Greed had become less than what it used to be.
Everytime the inorganic voice sounded in my head, I sensed that the feeling grew stronger along with the pain caused by the delighted Gluttony skill that came like a crashing wave.
However, I finally realized something after a while. I only felt pain running through my body every time I ate an omega slime.
Why? I kept hearing the inorganic voice announcing that the stats have been added, but I couldn’t feel anything.
This shouldn’t be the case. I tried to draw the black bow to shot at the man in black once more. It was supposedly a magic arrow with power much greater than any I’ve ever shot before.
But the man in black didn’t even intercept it, he simply took the blow.
He didn’t even receive any damage, only his mask was displaced a little. Shrugging of the magic arrow as if it’s something insignificant, as if telling me I don’t even need to intercept it in the first place.
Greed urged me to check myself with Appraisal. Certainly I haven’t seen how much I’ve grown after eating that many.

It’s capped at nine hundred million. Does that mean there is a limit no matter how much I ate?
Answering my doubt, Greed said.
『That is the limit of a human. From here onward is the domain beyond that of a human. It is known as the Area E』
Myne had also mentioned this. That Tenryu belongs to Area E, and how it’ll take at least 10 years for me to reach it.
And then, what else did she tell me…..?
I’m missing something that will allow me to break my limit. Perhaps that’s also why I couldn’t do anything on Tenryu’s presence.
『Fate, here is the bottomline. There is a huge difference between those who has reached Area E compared to those who hasn’t.』
『Any attack you do toward a person of Area E will do no damage. Physical, magical, special states, any kind of attacks will not affect them.』
[Then, the reason why the magic arrow earlier didn’t do anything to him…..]
I switched to black sword form and continued to attack the omega slime while listening to Greed.
『There is no mistaking, he belongs to Area E』
The man in black seemingly grinned under his mask. The eyes behind that mask eye holes were dyed in red.
It’s the color I know well enough to be wary about.
Condescending…..brilliant blood-like crimson. It’s as if my heart has been clawed by an eagle just by looking at those eyes.
『Fate, let me tell you this. No matter how sharp the weapon is, it all still goes back to its wielder. That’s why I said earlier that it’ll be depending on what you do』
I grasped the black sword tighter. I couldn’t wait ten years like Myne said.
I will rush up to Area E right here, right now.
