The silver needles hit the Snake Lizards directly but none of them did any actual damage.
*CHI CHI CHI*
Several green laser beams were released from the monsters’ eyes.
Angele was one second late. A large piece of skin was ripped off his left hand, revealing the bloody flesh beneath it.
He grunted as he could feel the intense pain coming from the wound.
“Ah!” Angele heard someone yelling from the entrance of the cabin.
He struggled for a while and raised his head. The female wizard named Morrisa was being attacked by a sword-wielding Snake Lizard. The white energy shield around her was starting to crack.
“Help me! Please! Help me!” Morrisa was almost crying. She fainted in the fight against the Cloud Bees and had survived mainly due to her luck. She realized that those Snake Lizards were extremely strong.
At the same time, some of the Snake Lizards realized that there were weaker targets than Angele and started to attack the other wizards again. Stigma’s strength was weaker than the monster attacking him, and his dagger had been taken away.
Stigma tried his best to avoid being stabbed by his own weapon. Angele could see the cold sweat dripping down his chin.
Angele’s brows furrowed. He hesitated for second and quickly took something out of the pouch.
“Light of Thorns!”
A golden light ball exploded in the air. Countless golden lasers were released to every angle and the bright light illuminated on the surface of the deck.
The golden lasers disappeared within seconds.
*PA PA PA*
About four Snake Lizards that were still attacking Angele fell to the ground. The one in front of Morrisa fell to the deck as well. Morrisa was breathing heavily. It was a terrifying experience for her.
The Snake Lizards had high Stamina. Although their bodies were burnt black, they were still alive. However, all of them were paralyzed.
Angele lowered the scimitar and applied some healing gel to his wound. He walked to one of the dying Snake Lizards and gouged its eyes out with the right hand.
He threw the two eyeballs into his mouth with no hesitation.
“Ah!” The Snake Lizard was screaming in the intense pain.
Angele stabbed its forehead with a silver longsword and the screams stopped right away.
He chewed the eyeballs several times and swallowed them as though he was eating normal food.
Angele drank another neutralizer and walked to the second Snake Lizard.
The only thing making a noise on the deck was his footsteps.
The Snake Lizard that was fighting with Stigma was hit by the golden laser in its chest. It fell to the floor and died.
Stigma took a deep breath after the threat was eliminated.
There were two Snake Lizards that dodged the attack by luck. They turned around and tried to escape.
Two arrows made of strains of blonde hair hit the back of the two monsters’ heads and they fell down right away. Reyline slowly lowered his longbow.
Angele had already finished gouging all the eyes out of the Snake Lizards on the deck.
“I guessed that you were a dark wizard. It seems like you really are one.” Reyline walked to Angele with his brows furrowed.
“What? Many light wizards were once dark wizards, right?” Angele was not concerned. “Does anyone have drinkable water?”
The rest of the crew walked to Angele as well. They had watched Angele swallow all the Snake Lizards’ eyeballs and found the scene a bit disturbing.
“What’s the matter? Sure, he’s a dark wizard but he saved us.” Stigma took out a water pouch and handed it over to Angele.
“Thanks.” Angele opened the pouch and used the water to rinse his mouth.
“That’s true. Many strong light wizards were once black wizards.” Reyline nodded. “But watching you eat all those eyeballs is still making me sick.”
“Yeah.” Hikari shrugged. Her face had turned pale. “Sorry but it’s just a bit disturbing to watch. Ah, actually, my master did something similar once. I thought he was just joking when he told me about it.” She looked at Angele.
“It’s fine. I understand.” Angele smiled.
Morrisa leaned against the railings but did not say anything. It looked like she was trying to keep a distance from Angele.
“I have a question. Those golden lasers…are from a magic device, right?” Reyline asked in a low voice.
“You’re right. It is a magic device.” Angele knew he could no longer hide it.
“Light of Thorns, huh? It’s a famous magic device in the Labyrinth College but I won’t question how you acquired it.”
Reyline was the only one who recognized the spell, while the rest of the crew looked surprised.
Angele shrugged but did not say anything. He had to use it considering the situation. There were only five wizards left on the boat. He knew that he could not survive the trip just by himself. Morrisa would die if he had hesitated at that moment.
He also wanted to use the cursed scimitar to absorb all the souls of those magical creatures. Activating the magic device was the best choice. Otherwise, the battle would take much longer to finish.
Angele got what he wanted. He saved the crew and acquired all the souls he needed.
They started cleaning the deck together after this conversation.
The wizards did not seem to care too much about the magic device as they returned their rooms after the corpses of the Snake Lizards were taken care of.
Angele closed the door once he returned to his room.
He walked to the window and looked down. There were not many trees on the plain and some mutated deer were running around.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes and his attributes were displayed in his sight.
‘Strength, 12.5. Agility, 11.2. Stamina, 13.4. Mentality, 51. Mana, 50.’
He drew the cursed scimitar slowly. There was a silver glint on the surface of the wavy blade and the weapon was surrounded by a green glow.
The green glow quickly climbed up Angele’s wrist. It looked like parasites that were trying to get into his body.
Angele put down the scimitar on the table.
The green glow left Angele’s body right away and returned to the blade.
Angele’s attributes were plunging as the buff was no longer affecting him.
After about five seconds, Angele’s body shrank slightly in size. He stared at the numbers with a blank expression on the face.
‘Strength, 3.9. Agility, 5.5. Stamina, 8.2. Mentality, 45.1. Mana, 45.’
‘Yeah…This is my true attributes without the buff…’
Angele suddenly noticed that there was still some energy from the scimitar left around his chest.
The energy was being consumed slowly. He saw his Mentality increasing slowly.
From 45 to 46, then from 47 to 48. It stopped at 48.4.
‘It actually worked!’ Angele was satisfied with the result. ‘Extracting the life energy is effective. My mentality has increased by 3. That’s the essence of 7 Snake Lizards. Incredible…’
Angele could feel the energy around his chest disappear when his attributes increased.
‘Zero, create a task. How much mentality do I need to reach the Crystal stage?’ he ordered.
‘Task created, simulating…’
Angele awaited the results patiently.
After about 20 minutes, the chip gave him the answer.
‘Crystal stage requires you to have a Mentality over 71,’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears.
‘What are all the requirements then?’
‘Requirement 1: Mentality over 71.’
‘Requirement 2: A refined magic circle. Use it to remove the impurities from the mentality.’
‘Requirement 3: You need more than 52 years to get used to the dense mentality. You can speed up the progress using advanced meditation techniques.’
Angele finally understood why the advanced meditation technique was so important.
The basic meditation technique was used to help wizard apprentices and formal wizards to increase their mentality. The advanced meditation technique was mainly used to help wizards speed up the process of getting used to higher mentality level.
The advanced meditation technique and the basic meditation technique were two completely different systems. That was the reason why the wizards at the west coast failed to develop it.
Angele stayed in the room and kept checking his body condition.
It was getting dark outside and night arrived quickly.
The crescent moon hung over the sky quietly.
Angele stood beside the window, listening to the noise made by the wind and the envelope.
He was alone in the bedroom and he felt relieved for some reason. The moonlight illuminated on the shell of the dead Cloud Bee and the shell looked like pieces of dirty crystals.
Angele was on an airship traveling through an unfamiliar area. He knew that the only person he could rely on was himself.
He walked to the bed and lied down. The soft blanket was cold, and he enjoyed the peaceful moment in his private space. The room was small, but the locked door made him feel safe.
Angele could still smell the stench coming from the Cloud Bee’s corpse.
“Green, are you already asleep?” Stigma’s voice came from outside.
“Not yet.” Angele got off the bed and unlocked the door.
Stigma stood by the door with an emerald plate in his hands. There were some barbequed meat and salad on the plate. The fat on the meat was caramelized well.
The fragrance of the meat rushed into Angele’s nose.
