Angele’s sight blurred for a second. He could feel the heat from his eyes. When he looked toward the direction again, he could now see what was happening clearly.
“It’s an…altar. A stone altar.” He recognized the object right away.
A gray altar sat quietly in a remote area. There was no one around it.
Green veins and black roots twisted around the altar. It looked old and the gray stone base had already started cracking. Some dried yellow leaves were blown into the air by the wind.
A pink crystal rune was floating over the stone altar, which looked like a crystal accessory.
It was a triangular crystal rune made from the pink crystal. A crescent moon, a math symbol, and a money symbol were marked on its three corners.
There was an eye-shaped rune in the center.
The eye-shaped rune was supported by a tiny scale.
The crystal rune was the source of the pink light dots.
“What’s that?” Angele wondered.
“I don’t know,” Stigma saw Angele staring at him and answered. “Those altars are common in the remote areas. Legends state that they were built by human beings. No one knew how to use those floating crystal runes. The runes will regenerate automatically if they’re removed from the altars. It’s a mystery.”
“You’re from Omandis yet you don’t know about those crystal runes?” Hikari wondered.
Stigma shrugged. “Yeah, I’m from Omandis but it doesn’t mean I know everything.”
Morrisa applied her eyesight buff to all the wizards and they started checking the altar altogether.
“Stigma, did you see the altar on your way to Nola?” Reyline asked.
“Yeah, but it was a different one. There is more than one altar in the area. Mutated creatures stay away from the altars for some reason, which as I have said, is a mystery,” Stigma explained.
“Sadly, I can’t go down there and check the altar myself. I’m curious.” Angele said what everyone was thinking.
“If we can survive the trip, we can go check those altars together later. What do you say?” Hikari asked.
“No problem,” Stigma responded right away.
“Sure.” Morrisa nodded. She was the weakest one of the five wizards, so she would love to join the team created by the stronger wizards.
Angele narrowed his eyes and looked at Reyline.
“I don’t have a problem with it.”
“I’ll join you too then.” Reyline nodded slightly. He only cared about Angele’s opinion since he had been defeated by the man before.
If the five wizards could successfully survive all the dangerous areas, they would gain a lot of practical experiences that would help them succeed in Omandis.
Angele was not certain that the methods provided by Stigma would work every time when they encountered dangerous magical creatures.
“Alright, it’s dinner time. I have some pork on the boat. We can barbeque those. What do you think?” Hikari smiled.
“Sure, I have many spices. I can make a great dry rub.” Angele chuckled, “I love barbequed pork. It’s nice that you brought some meat to the boat. I didn’t even think too much about food when I boarded the boat.”
“A wizard like me can’t live without some decent food,” Hikari responded. “It’ll be even better if we have some fruit wine.”
“I have several bottles of Horito Beer with me,” Reyline said in a light tone.
“But before that, we have some problem to take care of.” Angele suddenly drew his cursed scimitar. The blade was coated with a green glow.
The other four wizards hesitated for a second and glanced around.
Under the dark clouds, there were more than ten Snake Lizards coming after the boat. There were iron spears and swords in their hands, and Angele could see the greed in their green eyes.
“We should’ve stayed in the rooms a bit longer.” Stigma’s expression changed. “These monsters can detect living beings more than a thousand meters away. I didn’t expect a second patrol team.” He pulled the black dagger out of the sheath.
“Morrisa, go hide in the cabin.” Hikari threw two potions to the floor. The potion bottles rolled several times on the ground, leaving a trail of black liquid behind.
Two liquid tall white men spawned from the potions. Their bodies solidified quickly, and sharp ice shards emerged out of their shoulders.
The two elementals looked like two tall human beings that were equipped with ice armors. They did not have eyes, ears, and noses. The only thing they had on their faces was a mouth. They were saying something, but Angele could not understand the language. It sounded like some random runes.
“Go!” Hikari pointed at the approaching patrol team of the Snake Lizards.
The two ice elementals floated in the air and started charging toward the Snake Lizards. Their hands turned into ice blades.
Once Morrisa heard her, she rushed to the stairs. The Snake Lizards did not notice her at all.
Reyline raised his longbow to the air and pulled two strains of hair off his head, turning them into arrows.
As Angele held his cursed scimitar tight, he lowered his body and charged toward the Snake Lizards.
*Ka-ta Ka-ta Ka-ta*
He was running at full speed on deck.
Angele rushed to the railings and jumped into the air while releasing the distorted illusion energy wave.
He did a backflip in the air and slashed forward. A Snake Lizard that was flying to him was forcefully struck by the cursed scimitar.
The Snake Lizard was wielding a black iron spear. It grunted after taking the hit, but it started charging toward Angele right away. The monster blinked its eyes and released two green laser beams.
Angele blocked the iron spear with the cursed scimitar. He quickly leaned to the left and dodged two green laser beams. He supported himself with some wind energy particles and slashed forward again.
The blade hit the Snake Lizard’s chest, ripping through a thin energy barrier.
A green glint flashed upon the scimitar as the Snake Lizard grunted again. The blade cut through its chest and left a deep wound on its body. Angele could see the monster’s strange green organs through the opening.
The two laser beams hit the deck and left two burnt holes on the floor. They somehow managed to damage the extremely hard wooden surface of the deck.
The wind energy particles suddenly disappeared. Angele was falling down with the severely wounded Snake Lizard.
He smashed onto the deck and rolled several times on the floor. Angele created a metal shield behind him to reduce the impact and quickly stabbed the scimitar into the center of the Snake Lizard’s chest.
He stood up quickly. Angele could feel the chilling energy being transferred into his body from the cursed scimitar. His attributes were increased slightly again.
He took out a glass tube from the pouch right away and swallowed all the green sticky liquid inside.
It was spicy and salty. The liquid had the texture of a spicy slime.
Angele felt uncomfortable drinking it and even almost vomited, but he still forced himself to swallow it.
Green light flashed in his eyes and something happened to the chilling energy flow right away. Angele turned around and stared at the dead Snake Lizard. He asked Zero to analyze the creature.
Blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes before it disappeared within seconds. Angele looked at the monsters’ corpses and turned around to check the situation.
Reyline had killed three Snake Lizards just by himself and he was fighting with another one using his own twin scimitars. Those monsters were much weaker than the Cloud Bees.
Stigma killed two Snake Lizards and he was still fighting with his black dagger.
Hikari and the two ice elementals attracted the attention of the other Snake Lizards. She created several energy barriers, but it looked she was having some trouble.
There was no time for him to think any longer. Angele held the scimitar in his left hand and gouged the dead Snake Lizard’s eyes out with his right hand quickly.
The two green eyeballs looked like two dirty emeralds. They were soaked in the creature’s blood.
Angele closed his eyes and threw the two eyeballs into his mouth, chewing them several times.
His mouth was filled with the sweet juice leaking out of the eyeballs. He drank them all.
The rest of the Snake Lizards noticed what Angele just did and started shouting. Angele was not sure if Rua was the dead monster’s name or if they were just angry. It seemed that the eyes of the Snake Lizards held a special meaning to them.
Green glows appeared around their eyes. All of the Snake Lizards were now enraged. They stopped fighting with their current opponents and rushed toward Angele together.
Angele’s expression changed. He raised his right hand and conjured countless silver needles. The silver needles gathered together and flew to the approaching Snake Lizards at full speed.
The silver needles fiercely struck the Snake Lizards. Rays of green light and silver light flashed in the sky.
Angele was blown away by the impact, causing him to smash onto the railings on the other side of the deck as he grunted in pain.
