There were several bodies on the floor . They were from the Alpha Class parties of the Hebrion Academy . The Clothes Lines that boast such strong defense were torn and blood leaked from lacerations that covered their entire bodies .

But these weren’t fatal wounds . The wounds themselves were not that deep .

*Splash*

The reason they had died from such shallow wounds was from the poison that the Tyrant-Tula injected into their bodies .

The poison of the Tyrant-Tula, which was definitely classed as belonging to a monster of the highest level, was powerful enough to paralyze and melt the inside of the body on contact .

Due to the power of such a poison, they were immediately eliminated and marked to return to reality…

However, something had gone wrong .

*Splash*

The noise easily echoed throughout the desiccated passageway .

One of the bodies rolled over . Black legs sharp as blades ripped into it as the beast ravenously devoured it .

*Splash* *Splash* *Splash*

There was a loud sound of filthy water spilling onto the ground .

This process was repeated several times . Each body was meticulously  wrapped into a spider web . The figures of each quickly disappeared as they were sealed within the spider’s silk . Before long, the bodies that once littered the hallway were securely stowed within their new silk cocoons .

The silk that was once visible started to turn transparent and before long the grisly scene was no longer visible . The sharp, knife-like legs were also concealed in spider silk and became transparent .

The blood and bodies that were strewn everywhere had disappeared, as if they had never existed . There was only an empty passage leading into the distance .

Not too long after, the presence of people could be detected and the passage that was completely silent up until then was filled with the echoes of a voice .

“The reason why Tyrant-Tula is dangerous is due to the poison on the edge of its legs . There is also a special gimmick related to its spider silk . ”

The source of the noise was none other than Desir’s party .

Desir moved forward carefully . The filthy water on the ground splattered everywhere as the party traipsed through it .

“Tyrant-Tula’s web has the effect of making anything that it wraps transparent . ”

Most people knew this but Desir explained it for the sake of anyone who didn’t .

*Tap*

Desir stopped .

[Create Water]

Water droplets were suspended mysteriously in the air .

“Yes . It’s literally invisible . Tyrant-Tula has transparent webs everywhere like this and wraps itself in them . That’s why nothing is visible . To unknowing prey, there’s nothing in this passage . ”

Given how empty it was, believing such a monster existed in the passageway they were currently standing in was rather difficult .

“If we go fast and get caught in a spider web, we will get attacked by an invisible enemy . This is why people avoid Tyrant-Tula’s nest . ”

“What do we have to do then? Is there something special? ”

Freechel asked with curiosity after Desir’s explanation .

Desir nodded .

“The principle of the spider’s webs in this passage is simple: Tyrant-Tula uses the webs to sense and attack its prey . So, how should we overcome this?”

“Well… don’t touch the web at all?”

“That’s impossible . ”

Desir pointed at the passage extending straight ahead .

“You can’t see them, but from this point on, there are countless spider webs . As soon as you touch any of the webs, Tyrant-Tula will come running . It’s incredibly fast and invisible . You have no chance of coping . What can we do?”

After no one could offer a suggestion, Adjest opened her mouth .

“What about sabotaging the spider’s perception? Since we have to touch the web, we need to make it so we can break through without being detected . ”

Desir clapped .

“That is the correct answer . Tyrant-Tula’s perception is restricted to the spider’s web . In other words, if we irritate several spider webs at the same time, its perception will be confused . That’s the opportunity that we have to aim for . ”

Its limited perception was Tyrant-Tula’s only exploitable weakness .

“Hit the web with magic and shake Tyrant-Tula’s perception . Of course, we can’t just invoke random magic . ”

Desir opened his palms .

“To induce a stimulus strong enough that masks other human movement at the same time, we must hit at least five magic spells of at least the Second-Circle at the same time . This will give Tyrant-Tula no chance to recognize us . ”

“Let me take that role, Desir . ”

Adjest hurriedly suggested .

“It’s possible for me to arrange more than five spells at the same time at my level . ”

“You can arrange five spells but the problem is landing them at the right time . That kind of accurate magical arrangement is something only I can do . ”

No mistakes were allowed . At the same time, the magic had to hit a thin spider web .

“I’ll distract Tyrant-Tula from a little bit further away . You break though in that chance . Once you do, I’ll be right behind you . ”

“Is this a guaranteed method for success?”

“… Of course . ”

In the strange gap between the question and answer, Romantica frowned .

“Are you sure?”

“I’m serious . I’m sure of this . ”

Eventually, Romantica sighed and allowed the plan .

After getting everyone’s consent, Desir began preparation for his part in the plan .

“Even though Tyrant-Tula’s perception via its spider’s web can be avoided, be careful not to get stuck in its webs . They still have great adhesive force, so proceed with caution . ”

“I know that much . ”

“Good . ”

They got ready to run after exchanging a few more pieces of advice with each other .

“One… Two… ”

Five spells were formed in front of Desir .

“Three . ”

As soon as Desir invoked the spells, all party members except Desir began to run .

Pram swung his sword forward, cleaving open a webless path for the party to traverse .

Desir watched them escape quickly .

After that, the magic arrangements in front of him stopped and faded away .

‘Did it work?’

Desir checked that all of them had escaped and sighed in relief .

‘They would never allow me to do this if I told them the truth . ’

It was true that Tyrant-Tula’s weakness was disrupting its perception, but the way Tyrant-Tula perceived its prey was very different to what Desir had explained .

Desir had to deceive his party again since the actual method did guarantee the safe escape of the bait .

‘The real way it perceives people is… ’

Desir reached his hands forward and felt something on his fingertips . He caught the web .

Entangling it, he brought it to his heart .

‘Bio signal . And amongst them, it responds the most to heartbeats . ’

Tyrant-Tula’s favorite food was ‘live prey’ . Inevitably, it responded the greatest to bioreactions .

Desir stopped breathing and began to concentrate .

‘Recognizing changes in environment:’

‘Detect the slightest changes amongst this absolute silence . Nothing seems to have changed on the surface . ’

Silence .

*Tap*

After a moment or two, dust and debris began to fall off the walls .

Desir smiled .

“How many monsters do you think I’ve killed? Hundreds? Thousands?”

*Frack*

Tyrant-Tula appeared out of nowhere and ripped through the air, aiming to skewer Desir through the back with its leg .

Although there was the expectation that it could only make a small wound to the Clothes Line of a single ranker, it was still incredibly dangerous due to its terrible poison, able to kill its opponent with just the slightest cut from its leg .

So far, no student had ever been able to attack it, since it was able to appear out of nowhere .

At least so far .

However, Desir naturally reached towards his back as if expecting such an attack .

And with the spell that formed behind him –

***

When Desir opened the gate, his eyes and ears were immediately assaulted by Romantica’s loud displeasure .

“What took you so long, Desir?!”

Desir smiled and replied .

“Ah, I made a mistake and failed to disrupt its perception . Fortunately, I ran as well . ”

“You idiot!”

“Well, what’s our ranking anyway?”

“Yes, our ranking!”

Everyone in the party turned on their communication pads and checked the leaderboard .

The leaderboard on the communication pad was as follows:

1st: Unknown Party . Leader: Desir Arman

Progression Points 2350, Party Points 1900

2nd: Blue Moon Party . Leader: Argeria G Roglan Nimbias

Progress Points 2320, Party Points 1850

3rd: Red Dragon Party . Leader: Radoria von Dorice

Progression Points 2200, Party Points 1700

The party looked at each other in a mixture of surprise and joy .

“OH-YEAH!”

They had succeeded in taking first place .

They had surpassed the Blue Moon party .

“Let’s continue on with this momentum and clear it all at once . ”

“I agree!”

“I will do my best . ”

“Well, you should . ”

While everyone merrily continued down the passage, Desir noticed a scratch on his finger .

‘Hm… It may be from the debris . ’

‘It’s pretty painful for a simulated 30 percent pain limit… am I just imagining things?’

Desir kept his thoughts to himself .  He couldn’t give them anything else to worry about . Desir entered the fifth zone while rubbing his bloody finger on his lapel .
