The guests returned to their own seats after checking the crown. Vapor and Spider returned to their seats as well.
Eye Devil slowly stepped onto the platform in the center and glanced around.
“So, have you checked the authenticity of the artifact?”
“Of course, it’s authentic. It’s an artifact from Eye Devil and we all trust you,” a minotaur that was surrounded by burning flames responded in a deep voice.
The minotaur’s words made the other guests chuckle.
“Is that so? Elder Ebola has some good taste.” Eye Devil nodded at the minotaur. “Alright, name your price now.”
“10,000!” A young red man stood up and shook his wine glass slightly, there was a smile on his face.
“12,000!” Another man shouted—he was talking to his friend not so long ago.
The two black robes nodded slightly and one of them joined the bidding. “20,000.”
Eye Devil’s sight fell upon him. “Thank you, masters from the ultimate hell.”
“Thanks, Eye Devil,” the black robes responded to Eye Devil politely. It seemed like they feared Eye Devil’s power.
“23,000.” Someone else joined the bidding.
The two black robes did not move an inch until Eye Devil stopped looking at them.
Ice Lance was a bit confused. “Elder Snow Devil, I don’t think we need to be so polite to Eye Devil.”
“It’s common sense, we pay our respect to the strong individuals,” Snow Devil answered in a light tone. “We’re not the sealed ones, we’re just here to represent them. You’re here because of your father and I’m here because of my master. Eye Devil is not being polite to us, she just knows who is behind us.”
“You’re right.” Ice Lance nodded.
The price was already raised to 30,000.
Eye Devil blinked her eyes and smiled.
Spider and Vapor were talking to each other but their voices were so low that Angele could not hear anything.
Angele and Bone sat on the side and watched the guests bid.
“37,000!” An old man with the thousand-eyed bloodline stood up as he used the void talk to increase his voice.
The hall became silent after hearing the number, it seemed like no one was willing to pay more than that.
The guests in the hall hesitated after hearing the number. The main guests glanced around and waited to see if someone else would bid again.
Angele’s sight fell upon Eye Devil and noticed that she raised her right fist slightly.
“40,000.” Angele buffed his voice using the energy particles so the guests in the hall could all hear him.
Suddenly, all the guests looked at the stranger with curiosity in their eyes.
The hall remained silent for several seconds.
“41,000!” Elder Luis held his wife’s right hand tight and joined the bidding.
“50,000.” One of the main guests raised the price again.
It was Spider, she was sipping fresh blood from a red wine glass. Spider’s cheeks were covered with tiny green crystals—they looked like opened green eyes and they were blinking. It almost looked like the eyes were part of her skin.
Angele shrugged. “I’ll stop here if Spider wants the crown.”
Spider looked at Angele and there was a friendly smile on her face.
50,000 was the final price.
Eye Devil clapped her hands after the auction ended. Two teams of red girls stepped into the hall—there were golden beetles on the plates that they were holding. The golden beetles had patterns that looked like human faces on their backs. They were screaming and struggling on the plates.
The plates were put down in front of the guests; they floated in the air and it almost looked like they were supported by invisible stands.
There was a plate in front of Angele as well. There were more than twenty golden beetles lying on the tiny silver plate. Those beetles were running around the plate like crazy, but they just could not leave the plate. It looked like they were struggling in pain.
“Nice, finally some good stuff!” Bone praised. He grabbed a beetle from the plate and threw it into his mouth. The man looked satisfied as he chewed the beetle.
“This is the beetle king from the oblivion realm, try it, you won’t be disappointed,” Bone explained.
“Beetle king?” Angele looked at the beetles curiously. Those beetles had golden shells and six legs. Some of them were trying hard to turn themselves over.
Angele’s brow furrowed, he grabbed one of the beetles and threw it into his mouth.
He could feel the six legs of the beetle moving in his mouth. Angele hesitated for a second and bit the beetle.
The beetle stopped moving and some sticky liquid leaked out of its body. The liquid was salty, it tasted like a thick shellfish soup.
Angele tried his best not to spit the beetle juice out. Although his body was strong enough to handle the weak poison inside the beetle’s body, the texture of the thing was just unpleasant.
“You can have mine if you want more. I don’t like it.” Angele spat out the beetle legs and pushed his plate to Bone.
Bone grabbed the plate and poured the beetles into his plate. “Thanks!” The man looked excited.
Angele was a bit speechless as he watched Bone chew the golden beetles.
“Alright, we should get to the point since the auction is finished.” Eye Devil stood on the platform and asked the waitresses to take the crown away.
The woman glanced around and the smile disappeared from her face.
“I think you’ve already heard about the information of the void fissure.”
“The images from the other realms appeared in the void fissure and that’s the reason why we gathered you here,” Vapor added in a light tone. “Eye Devil, just tell everyone about the situation.”
Eye Devil nodded. “Alright, which realm should we southerners choose this time? I think you’re familiar with our old plan.”
“Well, it depends, I want to know which fissure is easy to go through.” A single-eyed man chuckled. “Although we all want to go to the elf realm, it’s not us who makes the decision.”
“Morrow is right. The lords of the north will select the Soul Lake Realm. They were defeated the last time and I’m sure they are not happy with the result,” Luis explained.
Bone sat on his seat; he was still eating the golden beetles. “What’s the new plan? Eye Devil, did you find a good target for us this time?”
“We just broke the seals and we need some time to recover. Let’s postpone the discussion and wait for the lords to regain their power. The void fissures can wait.” Eye Devil clapped her hands and the walls of the hall started moving down.
The hall turned into an open platform after all the walls disappeared.
Angele heard some loud noise from outside.
The platform was surrounded by a sea of lava and there was a lava waterfall dropping from a high cliff on the other side. The lava drops splashed on the surface of the lava sea.
The platform was built in a large cave underground.
There were many dark tunnels leading to other areas of the cave, the lava entered those dark caves and disappeared. However, the lava from the waterfall refilled the lava sea and it was a balanced loop.
Angele sat on the seat and he could feel the temperature around him increasing at an unbelievable rate.
‘Warning! Warning! The temperature is reaching the limit that you can handle.’
Angele’s expression changed but his face was covered by the black mask and no one knew what he was thinking.
‘How’s the temperature around me?’ He wondered.
‘1231 to 1257 degrees Celsius.’
It felt like being trapped in a heated metal cube. Angele’s skin was burning, and his dark red hair looked like heated iron on his shoulders. A burnt smell permeated the air.
The good thing was that his hair was also buffed by the fire resistance from the Molten Core River; the only problem was that the venom on his hair could not handle such heat.
Most of the creatures in the hall could handle the temperature but some of them were reducing the temperature around their bodies using some special techniques.
Not all the creatures could handle the bizarre environment with their physical forms.
“Alright, the rules are the same as always. Let’s get the party started.” Eye Devil smiled and returned to her seat.
Suddenly, translucent fire spirits appeared in the area around the platform. Each fire spirit was about the size of a human’s palm and there were invisible wings on its back. They were naked and they were all playing some light music using the harps in their hands. The music was getting louder and louder—it almost covered noise made by the waterfall.
The music sounded like boys and girls breathing. It was beautiful and attractive.
Some of the single-eyed men and women hugged each other. They fell to the floor and rolled several times.
Also, the naked men and women with the thousand-eyed bloodline started having sex right away.
Most of the guests in the hall were affected by the music. Spider jumped into Vapor’s arms and she was seducing the man.
Eye Devil sat on the side and smiled. She was sipping from a glass of blood wine slowly.
“This again…? It’s so boring.” Bone stood up. “Well, I’ll be leaving.” He glared at Angele. “Phoenix, you’re not interested too, right? Why don’t you leave with me?”
“Yeah.” Angele stood up. “Let’s go. Wait, Eye Devil, where are the materials you promised me?” He looked at Eye Devil.
“Don’t worry, I’ve already prepared them for you.” Eye Devil smiled. “I asked my servants to get them ready.” She clapped.
A red girl appeared by the edge of the platform, she walked to Angele and Bone quickly.
“Masters, please come with me.”
Angele and Bone nodded, they followed the girl into the dark red portal.
