The woman showed a disappointed look upon seeing the dragon. After hesitating for a second, she turned around and jumped onto the dragon’s back.
A purple dragon, a terrifying banshee, and a patio filled with black roses—this combination were what made the entire place mysterious.
The petals of the black roses were blown into the air as the dragon, alongside the banshee, after she jumped onto its back. Their figure immediately turned into a black dot and soon disappeared into the gray sky.
“Good, looks like she had to leave,” Henn said with a relieved tone. “Only wizards over rank 4 have the ability to tame dragons. If this was a stable portal, you would have been killed by the dragon’s breath right after you entered the patio.”
“But you and that woman should have been separated by the realm barrier completely, making it impossible for her to detect your presence. It might be possible if you possess the ancient bloodline of a creature that possesses illusion-related abilities…Don’t tell me…” Henn was becoming suspicious of Angele.
“Anyway, is there anything valuable here? This is a portal to the fairy realm, right?” As he decided to change the topic immediately, Angele stood up and looked at the cracked wall behind him.
“Well, you can certainly find something valuable here, but I just noticed, you are training in Molten Core River now?” Henn sounded slightly surprised. “So the Mask of the Black Wing really does not suit your style…”
“My style? Don’t tell me you already knew that from the start, when you gave it to me.” Angele narrowed his eyes.
“The Mask of the Black Wing is extremely powerful, but its stages are hard to master. If you could master the first several stages, I would give you the next part then you may be able to become the second Shadow Lord in history. Sadly, you are just not talented enough.” Henn sighed. “In any case, let us first leave this place. You need the magic circle engravings to master the stages of Molten Core River and you must find the right way to finish those engravings. With the help of a rich and strong fire source, you will be able to progress at a much faster rate. The third stage should be easy but for the fourth and fifth stages, there is no shortcut. You do not need much talent training in Molten Cover River, but you will have to put a significant amount of effort and dedication into it.”
“Strong and rich fire resource, huh?” Angele watched as the dragon disappeared into the sky, then grasping Lyn’s hand, they soon returned to the patio filled with black roses.
“These are no ordinary black roses. You can only find them in portals. Try igniting them,” Henn explained.
Angele nodded. He quickly tapped on the black roses in front with his burning hot sword’s point.
Soon immediately, the black roses were ignited. The flames’ temperature was so high that Angele had to take a step away. Even though there was no wind, the strange red flames were still leaning toward him.
“Let me teach you a technique that will allow you to carry a large amount of those black roses back. You can infuse this technique with your Metal Mastery.” Right after Henn spoke, she started transmitting the information to Angele’s brain.
‘Unknown information wave detected, accept?’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears.
‘Yes,’ Angele confirmed.
The technique was then transmitted to his brain quickly.
After checking the information, he closed his eyes for several seconds. The sword in his hand melted and formed into a ball of metal fluid.
The ball exploded as soon as Angele raised his hand that caused it to shower on the entire patio.
All the black roses in the patio were covered with the silver raindrops after several seconds.
“Come to me.” Angele waved his right hand.
Gentle wind was released from his hand and all the black roses started flying toward the center of his palm.
The sea of the black roses’ petals was controlled by a distorted force field and they were compressed into a fist-sized metal ball that floated on Angele’s palm.
Several minutes later, all the petals had been completely absorbed resulting in the color transition of the metal ball from silver to black.
“All right, let us leave now. The twisted realm barrier will cause a permanent damage to you if you stay here for too long,” Henn warned.
“I know. I still need to attend that dinner party.” Angele observed the black metal ball for a while before he put it in his pouch.
“I am still disappointed, though. I was expecting the blessing of the elemental fairies.” He shook his head and sighed.
“Take the teenagers with you. They survived in the Spiral Garden, so you can study them,” Henn advised.
Angele had nearly forgotten about the heirs of the three families. He walked to the fountain and saw the three teenagers still asleep in the colorful water of the fountain.
The colorful water turned into a distorted energy wave as Angele approached.
The water quickly disappeared, and the fountain returned to its original form.
Angele pointed at the three teenagers.
Three metal strings emerged out of his fingers and tied up the teenagers, using his forcefield to lift them up after.
“Wait!” Henn suddenly stopped Angele as he was about to leave the patio.
“Check the top tier of the fountain, use your hands.”
“The top tier?”
Angele walked to the fountain and created a staircase with the metal strings.
He climbed up the stairs to reach the top tier, then he touched it with his hand.
The material was cold and hard, but he quickly discovered a square item that was warm and smooth.
Angele carefully grabbed the item and lifted it up.
It was a square box made of white jade stone.
He opened the box but there was nothing inside. The only thing he could see was a dark hole that led to nowhere.
Angele narrowed his eyes and released a thin silver string into the box with his index finger.
The silver string continued to increase in length.
The box was small, yet the string could not reach the ends of that black hollow. It seemed like it was an entrance to an individual space.
“Do not even try. This is the box of the abyss. The very concept of infinity itself is sealed within. You will not find the end no matter how long your silver string can be,” Henn explained in a calm tone.
“Do not worry about it for now. The knowledge of concepts originated from the chaos world. Keep it well, you will need it in the future. Come on, time to go.”
Angele nodded, and the silver string returned to his finger.
He closed the box, then he returned to the entrance and stepped into the mirror gate with the slumbering people.
White light flashed in the air.
Angele and the other four people appeared on top of the mountain again.
Several black robes were chatting beside a campfire.
Liv was checking the surroundings by the bushes.
Hakeem was conversing with the female head of the Philips’ and sneaked glances on her chest. Though it was obvious that the female leader had no interest whatsoever in him.
The members of the other two families were waiting quietly at their own camps.
“They are out!”
“Yeah, that was fast!” Someone shouted as soon as Angele stepped out of the gate.
Hakeem, Liv, and the Watchers ran to them immediately.
“Master, how was it?” Hakeem inquired.
“This is not the secret garden of the elemental fairies but the Spiral Garden. If you want to, just enter using the gate. I have no idea how those kids tricked us with this so-called Foreseer Form.” Angele looked disappointed.
“The Spiral Garden?” Liv’s expression became grave the instant she recognized the name. “I must inform master Vivian now.”
“Yes, go ahead. I still have to attend a dinner party at a city nearby.” Angele already knew what would happen the instant the portal stabilized. “Do not worry. It will take at least one or two hundred years for the portal to stabilize.”
“Alright, I’ll go take a look.” Liv nodded walked toward the gate.
“Sure, the hypnotic aura is no longer there.”
“We want to check the garden too.”
Several members of the three families entered the gate with Liv. It seemed like they did not even know what the Spiral Garden was.
Angele returned the three sleeping teenagers to their parents.
Lyn slowly woke up as well. She rubbed her temples, and it seemed like she was still struggling.
“I apologize for disappointing you…” She bit her lips and apologized in a light tone.
“It’s fine. The situation was complicated.” Angele nodded slightly. “Alright, let’s head straight to Rofo City.”
Henn’s voice suddenly echoed in his ears.
“Return to the mansion after the party. I will teach you how to combine the box of the abyss with the queen’s cube. They will help in building ignition magic matrix. You can activate it with energy particles. The matrix is extremely good for Molten Core River. Just throw in certain materials into the matrix and it will convert them into pure mentality for you. The petals of the black roses are one of the best fuels you can get. With the matrix, you will be able to master the third stage with no problem.”
Henn stopped for a second and continued, “As a matter of fact, anything that does not belong in this world can be used as fuel. The flames acquired by igniting special materials, especially ancient bloodlines, will greatly help in your progression. There will not be consequences or impurities. If you can, try to find ancient creatures and extract their bloodline.”
“Huh?” Angele hesitated for a second. “Igniting an ancient bloodline will help me complete the stages of Molten Core River?”
“Yeah, let me explain the advanced meditation technique in a different way. You’re training in the technique because you want to become the strongest living being in this world. Strong bloodlines will accelerate the process.”
Angele nodded slightly but did not say anything.
He slowly walked down the mountain and activated the crystal scorpion.
Angele quickly took out a glass tube with purple liquid inside. With a flick of his finger, the liquid inside the tube was ignited and the flames were absorbed into his body by the back of his hand.
The feeling was comfortable and refreshing.
Angele turned around and noticed that his team already caught up. He quickly extinguished the flames and returned the tube to his pouch.
‘Unknown life essence absorbed, mentality increasing…’ Zero reported.
‘It’s true…’ Angele was satisfied with the result.
There were countless black beetles in the Nightmare Realm, it would be incredible if he could use them as the fuel.
