Chapter 402 - Baiting the ghost

Chapter 401 – Haunted

Liam shook his head trying to regain some sort of clarity. Back at the graveyard, he had collected a decent number of souls.


He did not finish his ’Soul Devourer ’ quest yet but he had collected about 30 souls which was a significant progress.

Was Gorak ’s soul among one of those souls? Shouldn ’t it have dispersed by now? Was it still lurking around? Liam had a million questions.

But he was sure that this was that guy ’s voice and he sounded quite vengeful. So he was probably the vengeful ghost or soul clinging onto him.

However, just as he got a second to think about these things, once again the voice started blaring loudly in his head.

”DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! ”

”DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! ”

”DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! ”

Liam clutched his head, wincing in pain. It stung him from all sides but this time, he was not exhausted.


”Shut the hell up! ” Liam shouted, clenching his fists. He was able to clear the fog that covered his mind and the pain as well significantly reduced.

He still felt a mild throbbing at the back of his head like that of a prolonged migraine headache but it was nothing that he couldn ’t handle.

”So you did not die fully and you are now clinging to me huh? ” Liam took several breaths and tried to stabilize his mental condition.

”DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! ”

Another burst of stabbing pain assaulted him.

Liam gritted his teeth and shook his head. His head throbbed, but the pain wasn ’t too much.

”Damn it. How the hell am I supposed to get rid of this vengeful soul? ” He could see that it would literally be impossible for him to do anything in a state like this.

He activated [Soul Sensing] to see if that could help him get a better look at this strange affliction. He had never heard of anything like this before.


Liam frowned as he tried his best to focus and sense any presence of a soul around him.

At first, all he felt was a blinding headache but as he took several breaths and kept trying, he soon sensed the presence of a thin layer of aura all around him.

It was as if white dots were covering him all over, every inch of his skin.

Liam raised his brows in shock. He absolutely had no idea what to do with this or how to make this go away.

He was actually possessed by a ghost? An undead soul? Something like that could happen?

He might even be inclined not to take this seriously if not for the mind numbing pain or the very real threat of his own soul corrosion.

Liam thought about the two demonic nymphs, the black ravens and now it was this guy ’s ghost! His number of stalkers was steadily increasing and he had not managed to shake any of them!

At least the first two were manageable but this once seemed to be the worst.


”Hmmm… ” He calmed down and once again attempted to do something about this situation. Thankfully, sensing souls was not the only thing that he could do.

Liam quickly tried to get a feel for the scattered soul dots. Until now he hadn ’t tried to forge a human soul but now he somehow needed to make it work.

He slowly tried to bring the scattered dots together one by one. It was a slow process and his head was still throbbing but he was able to push them together bit by bit.

At first, it was extremely difficult and each dot weighed heavily.

However, as more and more coalesced, they began attracting each other with a sort of natural pull that made Liam ’s work a lot easier.

His idea was to collect all of them together and forge them or even fling them away to get rid of the weird status of being corrupted by the vengeful soul.

”Come on. Come on. ” He gritted his teeth and continued, slowly pulling everything together.

Soon a small bluish white node began pulsing. It was not as solid and composed as a typical soul bead. It was very dispersed.

However, the intensity of the soul bead was definitely several folds higher.

Liam grimaced, feeling the full weight of a human soul. Another pang of searing pain assaulted him and this time it was much much worse than the previous attacks.

His vision darkened and for a split second, he lost control of the coalesced soul.

It was only for a fraction of a second but when his vision cleared up the coalesced soul was missing.

”Damn it. ” Liam cursed. He could sense that the soul had once again wrapped itself around him.

”KE KE KE KE! I WIN! YOU LOSE! DIE DIE DIE DIE! ” Gorak ’s voice as well pounded loudly into his brain.

”Fuck! ” Liam clutched his head and tried to push this annoying voice to the back of his head.

He knew it already. He was not strong enough. There was no way he would be able to deal with this curse in his current condition.

However, despite this, he did not falter.

In reality, he had already expected something like this. Everything that was powerful had its own pitfalls as well.

That too ’Soulmancer ’ was a mysterious class that he had never heard about. The potential and strength that he could gain from the class were also endless.

Considering these things, facing such challenges in the path was already expected. This was not his first rodeo.

And he was definitely not going to go down because of a single soul possessing him.

He slaughtered the guy when he was alive and he was going to slaughter him again now that he was undead.

He was already this close to doing it. He now only needed a bit more soul strength and he knew exactly how he was going to achieve that!

Liam sucked in a big breath of air with determination. ”Level 50! ” He mumbled. Soon everything would be resolved!

Along with the ability to form mana core, his body and soul would also get a qualitative change as soon as he touched Level 50.

With this increased soul strength, he would be able to easily get rid of the weak soul fragments stuck to him.

”BA HA HA HA HA HA! DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE, you bastard! ” Liam ignored the boisterous laughter in his head and turned to look at Luna who was still staring at him worriedly.

”I am alright. ” He rubbed the fox ’s head with a warm smile.
