237 The power of suppor
When looking up at the beast, blood could be seen dripping from its mouth. It was even quite a shocking site for both Fex and Quinn. They also consumed blood but this wasn't the same. One of the students intestines could be seen dangling from the side of the mouth of the beast and even for them, this was too much.
The vines continued to hover around the beats side as if they were alive like snakes. While the main body of the beast charged straight ahead into the students. Like a whip, the vines were used to knock the students closest away.
It caused quite a deep cut amongst the student's body that had been hit. They felt like they could have just as easily been hit with a sword. The attack was so fast and sharp it even felt like one.
Some of the students that saw their friends hurt started to rush towards them.
"No don't!" Del shouted. Del had propped his shield up and dug it into the ground while staying behind. His ability wasn't that great so all he could do was stay at the back, near the mountain wall.
"Healers, and support type abilities come and stay behind me, we don't want you to get hurt!" Del commanded. "Anyone who uses a beast weapon as their main attack, come closer to me now."
They did as their teacher told them to. Right now, the element abilities were busy distracting the beast, aiming for the attack against the legs while other students would try their best to block the vines.
The ones that had used beast weapons as their main attack had gone towards Del and could see him placing his hand on each item.
"I wonder what he's doing?" Quinn thought as he went over to take a closer look.
"My ability allows me to double the strength and durability of any beast weapon for a limited time. We need to defeat the beast before time runs out." Quinn overhead Del said.
Hearing this, Quinn too lined up waiting for the teacher. Those who had their equipment improved had gone to join in the fight with the other students.
There was a mixture of people, some were scared, some felt like they had no choice but to fight, and for a few of them. They enjoyed the thrill of a fight and couldn't help themselves but join in.
Quinn was the last to line up and eventually, it got to his turn.
"Boy, there's no point wasting this on you." Del said." Will you even get in a fight? Besides, I can only use my ability so many times in a day. It would be a waste on you."
These words had angered Quinn. If he wasn't going to use his vampire abilities, he thought he might be able to help out greatly just using his beast weapons. With all the students attacking the beast at once, it would be hard for them to tell where the bulk of the damage had come from.
"What about you?" Quinn said. "Why are you allowed to hide back here, while the others are attacking and defending. Is this shield just for show?"
"Yeah, you try to be a smartass," Del replied. "As you can see, I'm here protecting all the students behind me."
As Quinn looked at the students behind Del. He could see many of them with fear and shock in their faces. A few even had tears in their eyes as they saw their friends get hurt.
"I have to help him!" A woman cried as she went running forward, but her friend quickly pulled her back towards their group.
"Don't! I know you want to try to save him, but if you get hurt, we can't save anyone." Another female replied.
Out of all the students in Del's class. Her ability worked more like a buff increases the overall strength of a student, but still, it would be better than leaving them out there.
About eight of the students had been attacked by the vine-like whip. It seemed like the beast had stopped eating students while there were many around attacking it.
Still, the wounds on these students were quite bad and the two of them were unable to move.
After hearing what Del said, Quinn didn't really want to help out, but after seeing the sad look on the faces of the others he knew he had to do something.
"Pio come!" Quinn shouted as he dashed off towards the fallen students on the ground.
"IS he going to try to save them?" A student asked.
"No, he's only a level one, he must just be an idiot."
Peter wasn't the only one that was following Quinn, right now on his other side Fex was running closely behind him as well.
"I'll cover you while you do whatever you want to do, but you will owe me one after this," Fex said with a wink.
As the three boys got closer to the beast the vines started to head towards them slashing out at an incredible speed. The first one was towards Peter who attempted to grab the vine but it was just too fast.
It had slipped through and sliced the palm of his hands quite deep. As usual, there was no pain and his hand was already starting to heal.
Now on the other side, another vine was coming towards them and this time it was Fex's turn. Fex was a vampire and was unable to use his ability just like Quinn. However, there was a clear advantage of Fex's ability over others.
When using his string ability it was almost invisible to the human eye. As the vine came towards him, spread both his hands out and slashed it downward cutting the head of the vine right off.
However, just like with Peter, the vines seemed to have an incredible recovery speed and right now the head was starting to form out of the cut cells by Fex.
When by the bleeding student's side Quinn placed his finger into the students blood around the chest. It was too far away for the other students to see the finer details and everyone else was busy fighting the beast.
Quickly shifting his hand into his mouth, he quickly picked up the student and rushed back to the others.
[Ab blood type consumed]
Quinn then repeated this process with the other students who had been hit. In total, he managed to save five students and at the same time consumed their blood.
While the others had been flung away, or were too deep fighting in the carnage for Quinn to get the chance to consume their blood.
All in all, Quinn had gotten stronger.
Fex didn't let Quinn's strange habits go unnoticed. Even if he did enjoy the taste of blood greatly like some vampires did, to do so in the middle of a battle was a bit crazy.
While Quinn was busy looking at his stats and the two by his side were busy dealing with the vines, a third vine had already set its sight on Quinn.
When the two had looked at each other. The vine had set its target. IT reached out as far as it could to grab onto Quinn. But he wasn't as nimble when moving backwards and could see the vine would soon catch up.
Just as the vine was about to reach Quinn, it's movements suddenly slowed, and Quinn was able to create a distance between the two. He looked around seeing what possibly could have been the cause.
That's when he noticed the strange ghost-like spear, half of its body inside an elephant.
"The spirit spear?" Quinn said confused but when looking back, he could see Cia had decided to help out by using her spear.
