The color of the mud under Angele’s feet was getting darker and darker. The temperature of the ground was also increasing, and pink mist was rising from the cracks in the land.
*KA KA KA*
Angele was advancing slowly but steadily. White smoke would rose from his feet every time he took a step forward.
A strange noise came from his feet.
Angele knew that it was the sound made by his burning boots. He could feel that his feet were getting hotter and hotter.
He lowered his head and looked at the ground. There were only several hundreds of meters between him and the lava river.
‘My fire resistance is high but I can still feel the heat…’ Angele looked ahead.
The red smoke kept rising from the black area in the front and he could see some lava flowing in the cracks on the ground.
The smell of sulfur permeated the air.
Angele stopped for a second and took another step forward.
Fire sparked on the edge of his black cloak and quickly expanded to other parts of the cloak, igniting the whole thing.
Angele’s body was covered in red flames and the cloak started burning.
He raised his hands.
Black metal liquid spurted out of his skin and coated the surface of the burning cloak completely.
The fire extinguished seconds later and Angele had a new black cloak that was made of black metal.
His face turned pale and he quickly put his right hand on the face.
A black mask appeared on his palm and he covered his face with the mask. The nose and mouth area of the mask started transforming. They turned into a large filter.
Angele took out a glass tube from the pouch and poured the yellow particles into the filter. He dropped the tube to the ground after the process was completed.
He started walking to the dark city again.
The eye-catching red lava river was getting closer and closer.
Angele could hear the noise made by something burning in the air and the color of the sky around turned from black to red.
On the other side of the river, there were some small burning dots moving around.
Those humanoid light dots were surrounded by the poisonous fire; they were naked and their bodies were red. Angele could see the golden flames in their eyes. Those strange creatures were humpbacked, their hands and feet replaced by sharp claws. They were also breathing heavily.
With the help of the black metal cloak and the black metal mask, Angele’s body was not exposed to the air. He stood beside the lava river and white smoke started rising from his body.
Angele stood by the edge of the lava and raised his head, but he did not see any bridge.
‘Damn, this place is definitely not for human beings…’ Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes.
‘Average temperature of the area: 782-952 Celsius. Air composition: Unknown poisonous gas, 87.21%. Final conclusion: Not a place for mortals,’ Zero reported back quickly.
Angele took a deep breath; the air from the filter was minty and refreshing. The high-temperature gas was not a big problem to him. He had already completed the third stage of the Molten Core River and his fire resistance was probably higher than most of the creatures in the area.
He walked to the river and stepped into the lava with no hesitation.
Black metal liquid appeared under his feet and it quickly formed a rectangular blanket over the red lava river.
Angele walked on the metal bridge calmly.
The humanoid creatures were staring at the unwelcome guest.
“Ha…” Red poisonous gas was coming out of those creatures’ mouths. They were looking at Angele like looking at a delicious piece of meat. The creatures already prepared their claws, they were ready to strike.
Angele walked over the metal bridge and landed on the other side of the river within half a minute. More than 20 fire men were moving toward him from all angles.
He quickly glanced at those fire men.
Each fire man was about one meter tall; they were getting closer and closer, the road was almost blocked by them.
‘What’s this all about?’
Angele stepped forward with a blank expression on the face.
A sea of red hair spurted out of the black cloak and penetrated the heads of the fire men around.
All the hair returned into the cloak.
Angele only stopped for one second, then started walking again.
The fire men fell to the ground, turned into piles of red lava, and slowly sank into the cracked land.
The rest of the fire men witnessed the scene and decided to retreat. They watched Angele walk to the large city slowly.
Angele entered the dark city and the buildings around him were all burnt black. There were burn marks everywhere and he did not detect any living beings around.
The warm wind was blowing the black ash into the air.
Angele felt like he was walking on a thick blanket that was covered with ash. The ash almost covered the back of his boots.
It almost looked like the land was covered in burning firewood and there was fire sparking from time to time.
The street was dark and he did not detect any movement of any living beings.
Angele checked the surroundings and headed to the center of the city—it was a tall black building.
It only took him about ten minutes to reach it.
Angele observed the buildings on the street carefully; the whole city looked like a ruin that just survived some intense fire and there were dead bodies on the ground, but they were also burnt black.
He saw two people already standing in front of the tall building.
The first one was the star he saw from the sky, it was the berserker with bone armor and a bone helmet.
The grayish white bone armor was decorated with dark green crystals. There were two green axes on the man’s back and they were made of translucent dark green crystals.
The man’s head was hidden under the horned helmet. The two horns had different length and they looked wild.
The other one was a woman wearing dark red armor. There was a V-shaped open area on her chest, it almost looked like she was wearing a V-neck tight suit.
There were six black thorns on the back of the woman, they looked like a pair of bone wings; there was red glow on the tips of the wings.
The two quickly noticed Angele’s presence. Angele took several steps forward and stood several meters away from the two, so he would have enough time to react if anything happened.
The woman looked at Angele and smiled, countless green crystals appeared on her cheeks and they looked like a bunch of terrifying green eyes, blinking constantly with green lights.
“Finally, someone new.” She chuckled. “I didn’t expect Eye Devil to find us some new blood.”
The berserker did not say anything, he glared at Angele and lowered his head. The man was more than two meters tall and he had a muscular body. His arm had the size of a male adult’s leg, it looked quite strong.
“One more,” he spoke in a deep tone.
They heard the noise made by some metal armor as the berserker finished his words.
It sounded like an empty metal armor suit walking on the ground; the noise was getting closer and closer.
The three turned their heads around and looked at the black street.
A man with a full black armor was walking to the building step by step from the street.
The man was fully geared and there was a broken purple cloak on his back. The cloak was dancing in the heat waves.
Strangely, some green gas would be released from the gaps of the man’s armor every time he took a step forward.
There was a long silver sword in the man’s right hand and there was a pair of green eyes on the sword’s handle. The blade was about two meters long, but it was thin and Angele noticed that there was a long green string in the center of the blade.
“You’re early.” The voice from the black armor sounded like it was a robot that was speaking. He was speaking in the ancient language—it sounded a bit like a swarm of bees flying around and the voice was hard to distinguish.
The man looked around and his sight fell upon the stranger in a black cloak.
“Huh? A newbie? Who invited him here? Spider, did you invite him here? Bone, was it you?”
“What are you talking about?” It looked like the berserker hated his nickname. “Why does it have to be us? You didn’t even mention Eye Devil’s name.”
“We know each other for years and I know how Eye Devil deals with things. He’ll try to kill every newbie he meets. The only possibility is that he can’t kill this guy,” the black armor responded. “Do you really think Eye Devil can’t win a fight against him?”
“Well, anything is possible.” The woman that was named Spider started playing with her long purple nails.
The black armor glared at Angele again and walked past him. He leaned against the black building and stabbed his long sword into the ground.
Angele hid under the black cloak and he looked a bit speechless.
He was trying to scan the three using the biochip, but the force field around the three could easily deal more than 1000 degrees of damage and Zero could not analyze their power level at all.
Fortunately, Angele had high attributes and the interruption effect of the crystal scorpion. Otherwise, he would have trouble standing still under such pressure.
