The lightning spear flew toward Angele, who then realized that it was the metal barrier around his body attracting the lightning, and he took a step back right away.
Hikari was the first one to act. She drew a silver arc in the air and the arc expanded to a large light screen. The screen dropped right in front of Angele.
Stigma moved Angele quickly and stood right beside him.
“Wizard’s Brew!” He shouted as he raised the left hand. Some black substance spurted out of the center of Stigma’s palm and formed a black wall.
They created the barrier just in time. The lightning spear hit the silver light screen right away.
The lightning spear penetrated the wall, but its size shrank in half. The remaining of the spear then hit the black wall and disappeared.
“Go! Take them out! The weak one behind the barriers first!” the female storm spirit leader shouted.
About ten storm spirits started gathering lightning pulses in their hands, conjuring various types of weapons. The ones in the back were using lightning longbows, while the ones in the front were charging forward.
Reyline raised his longbow, releasing three arrows created by strains of hair. However, they were blocked by the lightning bolt shot by the female storm spirit leader.
Hikari and Stigma were standing beside Angele. Morrisa was casting some weak defensive spells for the three wizards in front of her.
Suddenly, five lightning arrows left the bows in the storm spirits’ hands, flying toward Angele.
Blue lightning pulse danced around the deck and the light illuminated on the whole airship.
Angele was still focusing on controlling the airship. He had to hide behind Stigma and Hikari.
One of the arrows penetrated the barriers created by the two wizards in the front and was about to hit him.
“Damn!” Angele leaped backward quickly, hitting against the railings. He barely dodged the attack.
A blue lightning pulse left the arrow and struck Angele’s body fiercely.
His face paled as he ran to the right side. It took several seconds for the lightning pulse to leave his body.
It seemed that only the leader was intelligent. The other storm spirits looked confused, unsure if the arrows hit the target or not.
They stopped moving and looked at their bows.
Stigma jumped to one of the storm spirits, stabbing him in the neck.
The storm spirit fell to the floor as he pulled the dagger out. Stigma rushed toward Angele and started putting up a barrier again.
Hikari followed right after Stigma. There were still storm spirits charging toward them. Reyline wanted to help but he was busy fighting with the female leader.
Angele was running around, trying to dodge all the ranged attacks. The three airships were still moving in the right direction. The strikes from the storm spirits could deal about 30 degrees of damage. The lightning pulse only hit Angele because of his metal barrier.
The storm spirits were weak, but their power was buffed by the tornado. They were moving much faster due to that reason.
Stigma and Hikari were not fast enough to keep up with them.
A lightning arrow pierced the floor.
The arrow exploded and turned into countless lightning pulses.
Angele quickly rolled to the left to dodge the strike.
However, he saw two lightning swords coming from the front as he raised his head up.
“Watch out! Green!”
Hikari and Stigma shouted nervously.
The two blue swords hit the deck furiously.
Angele rolled several times again to dodge the attack, but he was hit by the lightning pulse again. Zero was warning him about his body condition constantly.
The two storm spirits roared and rushed to him.
“You’re dead! Invader!” The one on the left his sword again.
Angele bit his lips. He could not fight back since he was focusing on controlling the Wind energy particles. If the airships moved to the wrong direction, all the wizards on it would be killed by the terrifying tornado.
The airships finally went around the edge of the tornado and were about to enter the safe zone while the storm spirits charged toward Angele.
Angele sighed in relief. He was enraged by the storm spirits and really wanted to fight back. He only needed to wait a bit longer. The safe zone was just right ahead.
The two lightning swords hit the floor again. Angele managed to dodge the swords but was again hit by the lightning pulses.
‘Warning! Warning! Your organs are being damaged…Please find a cover and heal yourself…’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears.
There was no way for Angele to dodge all the lightning pulses. He could not just deactivate the metal forcefield. Although he put most of his metal weapons in a non-conductive box before they approached the storm, his metal barrier was still bringing him trouble.
“Almost…We’re almost there! After the airships left the storm, I’ll f*ck those elemental bastards up!” Angele gritted his teeth and started running around the deck. The two storm spirits were chasing after him.
“Hey, Ruby brothers! Hurry up! He’s the weakest one here and yet you can’t even finish him off?!” The female leader shouted at the two storm spirits. She was still fighting with Reyline.
“Weakest one?! I’ll show you what I’m capable of in a second! I’ll cut your heads off and make them into wine bottles!” Angele dodged another strike from the Ruby brothers and exchanged words with the female leader.
“Ha? You? Come at me! I’m waiting for you!” The female leader sneered and licked her lips.
Angele suddenly felt an intense pain coming from the back of his waist. He was almost paralyzed.
He turned around and realized that he was hit by one of the storm spirit archers. The arrow turned into lightning pulses after landing on Angele’s body.
“Hey, come cut our heads off and make them into wine bottles! Ha!” The Ruby brothers laughed and slashed forward. “The only thing you can do is to run around like a monkey!”
“F*cking hell!” The lightning pulses paralyzed Angele’s body for a second and he failed to dodge the slashes coming from the Ruby brothers.
“Crap.” Angele tried to move but his legs were still recovering from the injury. He could only watch the swords falling onto him.
Suddenly, a man in a black robe rushed toward Angele and blocked the attack for him. He was blown away by the impact and hit the railings on the side.
“Stigma! I’ll make you pay!” Angele was furious, as he had begun screaming maniacally.
Finally, Zero notified him that the airships were about to leave the tornado.
“You’re dead!” Angele narrowed his eyes. He could stop focusing on the Wind energy particles in half a minute. He wanted to slay all the storm spirits that attacked them.
“Retreat! Everyone! We’re leaving the tornados!” The female leader suddenly gave the order.
“You’re lucky!” The Ruby brothers stopped chasing after Angele and the swords in their hands disappeared into the air.
“Let’s move!” The storm spirits moved away from the wizards quickly. They jumped out of the railings and turned into gray vortices, heading back to the tornado.
At that moment, the airships successfully moved away from the tornado and entered the safe zone.
He quickly returned the amulet into his pouch.
“Who’s running now?!”
He rushed to the railings.
The gray vortices had just left the railings and were about to fly away.
Angele raised his right hand.
“Reyline, longbow, please.”
Reyline threw his longbow toward Angele without hesitation.
Angele caught the longbow steadily.
He pulled the bowstring to full.
*CHI CHI CHI*
Three lightning arrows left the bow right away. Angele then raised his left palm and released some distorted energy waves.
“Light of Thorns.”
Golden laser beams appeared in the air as soon as Angele finished his words.
The gray vortices were stopped by the lightning arrows for a second and the golden lasers pierced through them.
The vortices stopped and returned to the deck. A group of storm spirits appeared on the floor again. Most of them were damaged by the lasers from the Light of Thorns.
The female leader watched Angele drop the longbow to the ground. She stared at the man with hatred in her eyes.
“How’s that even possible…” she muttered.
She thought Angele was the weakest member as he was being protected by the others and did not think that the man could injure them in their elemental forms.
Black rune flashed in Angele’s eyes. He walked to the storm spirits and sneered. “Where are you going? I haven’t changed my mind yet. I’ll cut your heads off.”
Angele rushed toward the storm spirits and slashed forward with the cursed scimitar.
The storm spirit in the front tried to block with his sword but failed. His head dropped to the floor.
The other storm spirits realized what just happened and they started attacking Angele.
Angele leaped to the left, dodging two lightning arrows, and blocked one lightning bolt with his scimitar. He rolled on the ground and jumped onto the Ruby brothers.
The Ruby brothers raised their swords at the same time and charged toward Angele.
Suddenly, Angele’s body blurred in their sights and disappeared. He then appeared from the right, swinging the scimitar forward.
Angele did not look back. He jumped to the female leader right away.
The Ruby brothers grunted, and their bodies were separated in half.
“No!” the female leader shouted furiously. The silver blade of the incoming cursed scimitar reflected in her eyes. Countless lightning pulses surrounded her body. Their color was turning from blue to purple.
