C23 Branch Clan: Sickle Insect
The battlefield was just half a meter away, and there were countless Ants and another kinds of tiny yet comparatively massive Caterpillars engaged in a fight.
The scale of the battle was huge, and the entire battlefield was filled with tiny Ants.
When they got close to Lo Ya’s tail, most of the Ants showed abnormal excitement. They knelt on the ground, and the antennae on their heads kept trembling.
“God is right next to us. She is transcendent and watching everything from above.”
The Ants were different from the faithful humans. They didn’t communicate through voice, but through other strange means. Their fear and awe towards the insect tail was more than respect, and there were also many strange emotions mixed within.
Lo Ya saw that many Ants worshiped the tail by offering their foods besides it.
“God doesn’t care about these things.” She said speechlessly.
The difference in their level was destined to be unsurpassable. How could such a gigantic creature care about the thoughts of these Ants? The two of them didn’t belong to the same world after all.
Lo Ya acknowledged the otherworldly intelligence of the Ants, but then she suddenly decided to take control of the Ant’s bodies and shouted, “The God is about to decree punishment, get out of here!”
“What did you say? Damned idiot, don’t mislead us again. We have never disobeyed God.” An Ant walking beside her, and responded fiercely.
Lo Ya smiled in response, stretched out her hand towards a group of Ants not far away.
To these tiny and pitiful creatures, this appeared as if the apocalypse had befallen upon them, leaving corpses of hundreds of Ants littered over the slope.
Looking at the bloody scene, the Ants were shocked silly. However, to their utter despair, the blood bath wasn’t over yet. Lo Ya opened her mouth and spat out a mouthful of acid at the battlefield half a meter away, as the melody of corrosion eating away the Insects’ life was the only thing that could be heard in the vicinity. Whether it was the Ants’ enemies or themselves, none of them was spared, and died in an blink of an eye.
The Ant swarm fell into chaos, and fear overwhelmed their emotions.
“No, it’s impossible!” The Ant colony, which had previously been questioning God’s Punishment, was on the brink of collapse.
“As I said, God will bring punishment.” Lo Ya looked down at them and continued, “You must have done something wrong to provoke the Divine Spirit’s anger.”
They were stunned for a while and one of them suddenly asked, “Who are you? And how are you capable of predicting the actions of the God?”
However, Lo Ya didn’t even bother to reply.
These pitiful Ants might never know the truth.
The main body squatting beside the swarm was lost deep in thought. Suddenly, she raised her head and looked at the Crystal Dragon corpse not far away.
The corpse was on the brink of disappearing, and the liquid seemed like the melted sugar as it slowly made its way under the ground. Lo Ya wriggled towards the corpse and found that the solid crystal had already turned into a viscous liquid.
“It seems like it can be eaten now.”
She hesitated, and after a brief moments of thoughts, she finally plucked up her courage and started licking it.
[Evolution points + 4]
Although the taste was a little strange, she still decided to eat it and earn the Evolution points for herself.
After struggling alone till mid-night, the Crystal Dragon’s corpse was finally devoured, and Lo Ya’s Evolution points had also reached an astonishing 5000 points. She could now step into a new wave of evolution.
“Enter the Editor.”
Suddenly, the scenario around her completely changed, and millions of glittering stars encompassed the sky. While an ability tree that had evolved from the mysterious side popped out in front of her.
At the root of the tree, the icon that had long lit up was flashing non-stop.
[Energy Conversion – Elite]: An individual’s lifespan and combat power will receive an extraordinary bonus. Every individual can become an Elite. Editor Consumption: 1000 Evolution points]
The icon lit up, and the starlight shone with incomparable radiance. The roots of the tree extended once again, lighting up the next icon: Biological Division.
[Biological Division: Pay 1000 Evolution points to transform a single split tail into a special split tail. In this split state, the tail will mature within one day and grow into a giant white Insect larva. Feeding the larva with living creatures can promote its evolution. The evolved adult can automatically split into identical individuals, which will act as a branch clan under the control of the master consciousness. There is a very small chance that the offspring will undergo a second evolution and mutation to form a higher level offspring. All branch clans are affiliated to Insect Girl’s clan and are directly controlled by main consciousness. Editor Consumption: 3,000 Evolution points.]
The slightly complicated and lengthy introduction made Lo Ya’s expression become strange.
“Evolution, duplication… This kind of development pattern, why does it resemble the Insect Clan?”
With countless doubts in her heart, she withdrew from the Editor, and found that her size did not increase this time around. Instead, all of her attributes had increased by a small margin.
“Looks like the increase isn’t very obvious for the time being.” Lo Ya was not in a hurry at all. She returned to the room, woke Lo Xin up, and asked her to use her barely grown tail to perform a special split.
After using up the remaining 1000 Evolution points, a thing that grew faster than an ordinary tail appeared in the crowded trees.
After jumping around for the whole night, an enlarged version of the White Insect crawled out from the Insect tail.
“No matter how much time I see this scene, it is always disgusting.”
Lo Ya could not accept this fatty. After it was born, it immediately crawled out of the tree house, and approached near the miniature Ant nest that she found yesterday; stuck out its tongue, and started licking it.
A bunch of Ants couldn’t survive this second disaster and fell prey to this notorious newborn.
Soon, a strange mucus was secreted by White Insect’s body, and gradually took form of a outer shell, completely encompassing its body. Two sharp sickles and a pair of sturdy thin wings drilled out from its soft skin, bestowing it with a ferocious look.
After the short evolution this time, it had already become a large fat maggot with two sickles.
After observing its performance, it could be seen that the evolution of the White Insects mainly depended on the genes of their food. This type of gene had its own deleting function, and would only accept parts that were beneficial to itself while eliminating the useless ones.
“Lo Xin, Lo Lee, Lo Lo, go and catch some insects nearby and feed them to it.”
Lo Ya was also prepared to find some large creatures to direct its evolution.
Not long after, she found a large Black Insect with pincers
Hard-skinned Insect, LV2, Wild Beast.
Most creatures that lived alone were ferocious, but for Lo Ya who was level 10, it was not difficult to kill this level 2 target.
With one strike of the Wind Blade, the unlucky Hard-skinned Insect was sliced into two pieces.
She went forward and grasped its corpse, finding that its shell was very hard. No wonder it was called the Hard-skinned Insect. With this hard shell, it was a prey that was hard to tame.
Lo Ya brought the corpse back to White Insect’s side and found that the fatty’s appearance had changed a lot since then.
There was a row of sharp spikes adorning its back and a thick horn crowning its forehead. Other than a pair of sickles, there were also two insect limbs shaped like blades on the front of its body. Its appearance alone was scary and capable of creeping anyone out.
At this moment, the White Insect was completely covered with red and black shell, and it was also smaller in size. There were four agile insect legs growing out of its lower body. Under the orders of Insect Girl, it could easily jump more than half a meter high.
“Eat this thing too.”
Lo Ya threw the Hard-skinned Insect’s corpse in front of it.
After the hideous and terrifying mouth chewed the corpse, the mutated White Insect let out a dull roar. Then, a layer of pitch-black hard shell grew out of the red carapace again, followed by the sickle and the sharp blade merging into a weird insect blade with a sharp tip, and even more exaggerated length and hardness.
Its eyes also flashed with a faint scarlet color.
“Lo Ya, it looks so scary.”
Lo Xin stood by her side, looking at the mutated White Insect species that was gradually enlarging into the size of the Insect Girls, and her expression was somewhat uneasy.
“This isn’t a bad thing. It looks very powerful.”
Lo Ya didn’t look worried at all. As the main consciousness, her Spiritual Link could feel the warm feelings emitted from the mutated creature. However, compared to Insect Girls, this creature’s intelligence was much lower. It was more like an absolute loyal subordinate under her command.
“But… its appearance really looks like those Ants that I killed yesterday.”
Lo Ya thought of the massacre she committed last night The Ants treated her as a god and in the end, she burned thousands of them with a mouthful of acid. She did not expect that the next day, they would became pitiful gene supplements again, turning into nutrients for the White Insect’s evolution.
A few Insect Girls waited beside the big tree for two hours, and it finally finished evolving.
[Branch Clan member evolution completed, please name it.]
Lo Ya glanced at the sharp sickle on its forelimbs and directly entered the two words: Sickle Insect.
[Magical Creature: Sickle Insect (Insect Girl Clan Branch)]
[Level: 1 / 5]
[HP: 30 / 30]
[Strength: 1.6, Spirit: 1.0, Magic: 0, Agility: 2.5, Vitality：2.0]
The Mutated Insect’s basic attributes were higher than Insect Girls, but the Life Points were relatively low. Its highest level was 5, and if it wanted to increase its potential, it would have to undergo more evolution and mutation.
The Sickle Insect could also reproduce their own kind. Once they eat a large number of living things, the cavity in their bodies would rapidly produce an isolated embryo similar to Insect Girl’s split tail. Then, it would leave their body and grow into a new Sickle Insect. The whole process would require only a short day.
The newborn Sickle Insect only needed to eat a small amount of living creatures before it would enter in a rapid growth phase, and attain mature body within two days, obtaining powerful combat strength.
Theoretically, a Sickle Insect could reproduce once every hour, but in reality, due to the quality of food and other factors, there would be a large fluctuation in time.
“Looks like I don’t have to rush for today. Later, I’ll think of a way to make this guy give birth to a few more offspring.”
‘How should I put it? After all, it is a descendant that is nurtured with 1000 Evolution points. Its strength is so weak. If it will be killed by other creatures on the way, it would be a disaster.’
However, if a large group of offspring were hatched, then even if a battle really broke out, she wouldn’t have to worry about losing anything.
For Insect Girl, the Sickle Insect was a cheap cannon fodder, and the reason for its existence was to fight for them.
Lo Ya borrowed the spiritual communication ability of the main consciousness and successfully connected to its mind. After a command, the Sickle Insect obediently stayed in the tree house and waited for the next orders.
The adult Insect Girls gathered together and began to search in the forest for weak wild beasts that could be hunted down easily.
