C18 Mental Communication
At present, there were 10 Insect Girls in the group. Correspondingly, the number of split tails yet to be born amounted up to 7.
From birth to growth, it only took Insect Girls 30 days. This kind of amazing reproductive speed was considered very fast among the Magical Creatures. But to Lo Ya, it was only the first step to the development of her species.
She was prepared to continue increasing the species’ ability through battles. Unfortunately, at this moment, a group of terrifying creatures appeared.
Gaeta Insect Swarm – Spiked Insect, at Level 1, of Magical Creature species.
This creature relied on its four legs to run. It had two sharp insect limbs that could easily pierce through the enemy’s defense. They were in large numbers. When Lo Ya first encountered these insects, they were fighting a group of grey wolves.
Towards the end of the battle, both parties suffered great loss.
At the last moment, Lo Ya secretly used the Dark Melting to make another slash and killed one of the spike insects. Then, she hid in a corner with the corpse and devoured it. By doing so, she obtained a special component called the Spiritual Communication Receptor.
[Spiritual Communication Receptor: By communicating through the spiritual power, it can transmit information to different species and translate the other party’s information.]
“So it can be used to communicate with different species?”
No one knew.
She felt that something was amiss recently. Logically speaking, Goblins should have come to take revenge. However, there was no trace of them after a long time, and there were many wild beasts running around flustered.
‘Is there any danger in the vicinity?’
The uneasiness in her heart was getting stronger. She felt that she might have to leave this place like other creatures. If there was a disaster coming, probably she would not be able to gain any benefits from staying here but incur terrible loss.
Of course, the most important thing was that she could evolve again now.
[Since you have met the level requirement, you may evolve directly.]
After this prompt, Lo Ya directly entered the Editor and took out all the components that she had obtained recently.
Actually, there were not many useful components. She had got rid of some of the components that were too ugly.
She couldn’t help it; after all, being good-looking was above anything for the aesthetic Insect Girl.
The first step to evolution was to install the [Spiritual Communication Receptors], which consumed 200 Evolution points.
This component was directly installed in her brain, so it would not change her outer appearance.
Next was the electric membrane.
[Electric Membrane: With one positive end and one negative end, it can consume energy to release electric shocks, producing paralysis and killing effects. Editor Consumption: 100 Evolution points.
The component would obviously be installed on her fingers. As long as the Insect Girl put her hands on the target, an lightening electric current would strike the opponent. The lethality of this thing could be imagined. If she was in the water, she could kill the opponent from a distance.
Although the evolution of the components made her happy, what made Lo Ya even more excited was the newly opened mysterious thing.
A very complex and advanced evolution tree popped out of it, and the first branch of it was [the heart of Insect Girl].
[The heart of Insect Girl: The main consciousness increases the means of controlling the individual branches. By relying on the spiritual power to communicate, it gives direct orders to different individuals and forces them to obey. Editor Consumption: 600 Evolution points.]
Alright, Lo Ya had always felt that Insect Girl’s intelligence was unsatisfying and they always did something inappropriate. If she had this ability, she would definitely be able to make them listen to her instructions effectively.
The thin line on the [the heart of Insect Girl] lit up against the dark night sky.
The subsequent path of evolution was as follows:
[Energy Empowerment-Elite: Individuals will receive extraordinary lifespan and combat power bonuses, and each individual can become an elite.]
This option required 1000 Evolution points.
Lo Ya glanced at the remaining 300 or so points she had and understood that she could not immediately make a choice.
“It seems nice.”
The Insect Girls really lacked fighting strength at the moment.
“Forget it. I will think about it later.”
After withdrawing from the Editor, the Insect Girl began to evolve.
In terms of height, she had grown by about five centimeters. Other than that, there were no other changes. But Lo Ya could clearly feel the extra ability she had: Spiritual Power Communication.
It was not just any ordinary communication. Unlike her companions, she could directly issue orders through the spiritual network and make all Insect Girl follow her orders.
“There is no need to worry so much for now. Let’s go and test my combat strength.”
Lo Ya was only at level 5 now. In the vicinity, she could be considered a powerhouse.
Though, it didn’t mean she was very safe. There were very few resources in this area, and powerful creatures were not willing to come here.
Lo Ya wriggled to the side of a grass patch, and saw a red ladybug that was hovering 10 centimeters above the ground while rapidly flapping its wings.
Red Ladybug, at level 3, Beast.
She activated the spiritual power and read the other party’s information.
“It’s forbidden to advance… the territory… otherwise… enemy…buzz…”
Obviously, the spiritual communication directly analyzed the other party’s thoughts.
“Is this the ladybug’s territory? If I continue to move forward, they will treat me as an enemy?” Lo Ya was very surprised.
‘Huh, now you are just making me want to barge in even more.’
When had this Insect Girl ever been afraid of anything?
Lo Ya did not say a word and sprayed out a mouthful of acid onto the opponent’s insect shell before wriggling towards the target.
“You are doomed.”
She summoned the large dagger in her inventory and stabbed at the Ladybug. Unexpectedly, the opponent suddenly shook and hovered into the air. Then, it staggered and circled to Lo Ya’s left side.
“It hurts. Danger. Enemy… Attack.”
Chaotic information flowed into the Insect Girl’s mind, and the Ladybug immediately counterattacked.
It opened its mouth wide and spat out a long thin thread from within, accompanied by a swift sound.
Lo Ya’s left hand was tied up.
“What great strength!”
Sure enough, it was not an ordinary ladybug.
Seeing that it was closing in the distance, Lo Ya simply pressed her two hands under the opponent’s body and activated the Electric Shock.
A electric arc flashed and the ladybug’s entire body convulsed and fell onto the ground.
From the ladybug’s reaction, it seemed that Lo Ya’s Components were much more powerful and almost crippled her enemy in an instant.
Raising the dagger, she slashed straight ahead.
The knife fell… However, unexpectedly, the ladybug dodged. It flew up again and leisurely retreated.
From afar, the spiritual power could still feel the weak message in the enemy’s mind: “Territory… intrusion… help…everyone…”
Perhaps its request for help did have an effect, because several ladybugs flew over from afar.
“Intruder… Go to hell…”
“Damn it!” Seeing this scene, Lo Ya immediately turned around and fled.
