“It’s understandable, you and Eye Devil didn’t focus on training your strength,” Bone said as he chewed on the large rhino bones—he’d already finished eating the rhino’s brain.
Angele was not sure how he should respond to Bone but someone else interrupted before he could say anything.
“Bone, not everyone is like you. Phoenix was sealed for too long and he’s probably still recovering.” A familiar face appeared on an empty seat beside.
The woman was wearing a black robe with a silk mask, only the top half of her face was exposed to the air. It was Eye Devil.
“Eye Devil! How dare you!” Bone dropped the rhino bone to the table and stared at Eye Devil. “Why didn’t you stop me?”
“Well, you left that hall before I could finish my words. You should blame yourself for that.” Eye Devil chuckled.
“Whatever, I won’t let it slide this time!” Bone turned around and started eating again after he stared at Eye Devil for a while.
Eye Devil’s sight fell upon Angele. “Phoenix, why don’t you have some food? You didn’t like the appetizer?”
Angele smiled. “I’m taking her back to do some experiments. I need to see if human beings have changed after all those years.” He decided to choose his words wisely.
“Is that so? Do whatever you want to.” Eye Devil did not say anything else.
Bone patted Angele on the shoulder. “I know you’re different! Come here, let’s have some real food!” He used his right hand to cut the rhino in half and sliced off a large piece of fresh rhino meat for Angele. Bone did everything so fast that Angele had no time to decline the offer.
Angele lowered his head and saw a large piece of rhino filet on his legs.
“Thanks, rhino meat is the perfect snack for me. I like it.” He nodded at Bone slightly.
The rhino meat reminded him of the beef jerky on the earth. He pulled a small piece of fillet down and threw it into his mouth.
“Snack?” Bone and Eye Devil’s expressions changed.
“Rhino is a relatively large creature and you consider it a snack…? How large is your true form…” Eye Devil and Bone looked at Angele in a different way. They misunderstood Angele’s words.
Eye Devil pursed her lips and closed her eyes.
Angele was chewing the rhino meat but he suddenly heard Eye Devil’s voice echo in his ears.
“Phoenix, I have an offer for you.”
Angele was a bit surprised, he was not sure if he could send the words to Eye Devil using the energy particles without being detected. He decided to exchange eye contact with Eye Devil.
It seemed like Eye Devil was not getting suspicious.
“It’s easy. Help me make the price higher and I’ll give you a share. Also, I’ll help you once for free, the detailed procedure is…”
In the front of the hall, there was a red platform between the main guests’ seats.
The five waited for about two hours and the rest of the main guests filled up the three remaining seats. They were all wearing black cloaks and their faces were covered by metal masks. They looked like three human beings but Angele had no idea what kind of monsters they were.
The people eating at the tables all stopped and stood up. The red girls cleaned the table and the floor. The place looked much better without the blood.
Eye Devil disappeared from the seat within seconds and she appeared on the red platform quickly.
*CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Eye Devil clapped her hands several times.
“I’m glad that you decided to attend my party. We have three masters from the ultimate hell, Bone, Vapor, Spider, and a hermit named Phoenix that just broke the seal. There are eight sealed masters here, something that hasn’t happened in several thousands of years. This is a grand party for the lava hell!”
The guests beside the tables started clapping together and they were staring at Eye Devil with excitement in their eyes.
A gentle smile appeared on Eye Devil’s face.
“As the host of this party, I appreciate that you decided to join us today.” She bowed to the guests slightly. “Also, I prepared a small activity before we start the party.”
She clapped her hands as she finished the sentence.
A bloody meat cocoon dropped down from the ceiling.
The meat cocoon was supported by some white spider web and it was floating on the right side of Eye Devil.
Eye Devil smiled and pressed on the meat cocoon slightly.
“We found this item on the edge of the void fissures. We’ll auction the item before the party starts. The rules are the same as always, tell me the price you want to pay using the void talk.”
The meat cocoon cracked open in the center and inside, it was a golden headguard that looked like a crown.
The was a fiery ruby in the center of the V-shaped headguard. The whole item looked simple but elegant.
“This is the Minstrel’s Crown, an artifact from an empire of the Soul Lake Realm. The crown was worn by two of the empire’s Emperors. That’s the reason why this accessory is infused with mysterious power.” Eye Devil smiled and looked at the guests. “You must be the nobles from different areas since you received my invitation. Come closer everyone, you can check the artifact with your own eyes.”
Eye Devil walked straight back to her seat, she sat down slowly and started resting.
The guests stepped forward and started observing the crown inside the meat cocoon carefully. They took the crown down and whispered as they observed the artifact.
Spider, Vapor, and Bone stood up as well—they walked to the crowd and looked at the crown.
The three black robes that came from the ultimate hell were not interested in the crown. Two of them stood up and started checking the ancient paintings on the walls.
The last one was communicating with someone else with the “void talk” ability.
The two black robes stood next to each other, they were releasing freezing energy waves.
A red man and a red woman walked to the two black robes and greeted them politely.
“Elder Ice Lance and Elder Snow Devil, right? Do you remember me? We’ve met in the ultimate hell once about 150 years ago.” The red man opened his mouth.
“Of course, Elder Luis, it’s been a while but you still look young.” One of the black robes chuckled.
“I’m nothing compared to you two. You’re still at the top level, but we’re getting old and we’re much weaker than before. The thousand-eyed bloodline is relying on Eye Devil now.” The eyes on the man’s skin blinked altogether.
“This is Lina, my new Liyus, and she’ll be with me for the rest of my life.” The man named Luis introduced the girl to the two elders.
The girl bowed to the elders. “Nice to meet you, Elders.”
“Nice to meet you too. Liyus, huh? Please take care of Luis for us as his wife.” The other black robe hugged the girl slightly.
“It’s my duty, don’t worry.” The girl nodded and smiled.
The four had a short conversation. Luis wanted to introduce his wife to his old friends and he reached his goal. The red man and the red girl left together.
The two black robes started observing the paintings again and no one else talked to them.
“Snow Devil, did you see the guy that covered himself with the black cloak?” Ice Lance looked at Angele, the young man was taking a nap. “I don’t like him. Did you notice the strange fragrance around his body?”
“I noticed that moments ago. Where did Eye Devil find this sealed form? He probably just broke the seal and he’s having trouble stabilizing his power. Don’t worry about him. Also, what do you think about this crown?” Snow Devil responded.
“It’s a decent artifact, but I don’t want to pay too much for it.” Ice Lance showed two of his fingers.
“20000 soul crystals?” Snow Devil gasped. “Well, that’s a lot of resources, but I guess it’s fine for you.”
Angele noticed the two black robes as well.
He opened his eyes and started chewing the rhino meat again. He was checking the creatures in the hall.
The terrifying part was that all the defensive barriers around the creatures in the hall could easily deal over 1000 degrees of damage.
It meant that he could be easily killed by any of the creatures attending the party.
He hid his true power with the bloodline signet; otherwise, those creatures would know how weak he was.
Angele used the mentality compression technique and let the bloodline signets do their thing.
He already knew that the crown everyone was looking at might be counterfeit—such artifact would only be treated as collectible after being purchased. No one would try to activate its effect. An artifact from the Soul Lake Realm… it was an honor for any nobles to own an artifact like that.
Eye Devil wanted Angele to raise the price for her and she would give him a share as a reward. She knew that Angele just broke the seal and he would do anything to get the resources.
It was a thought she had after the fight with Angele in the forest. The woman had a similar way of dealing with things to the wizards. She would do anything as long as the benefit justified the cost.
