Chapter 379: Eye Devil’s Party (6)

The two returned to the first building they entered after leaving the portal.
A large red magic circle was releasing rays of blinking red light on the ground and there was a stone platform floating in the center of the circle. A long silver sword was stabbed into the stone platform.
Bone stretched his body and the bone armor made some loud noises.
“Alright, I thought there would be something that I could help you with, but the crown she auctioned was a joke.” With a flick of Bone’s finger, a white light dot landed on Angele’s palm, turning into a white skull.
Angele checked the weight of the skull.
“You can contact me using this thing. To be honest, I haven’t met a man that I liked in years. Just talk to me if you need any help!” Bone hit his chest armor with his right fist, making some noise. “Alright, I’ll go back to my Bone Sea now. Also, don’t trust Eye Devil, that woman is hard to deal with. She can get mad at you anytime. Be careful.”
“Sure.” Angele nodded. He still had several questions to ask; however, green flames covered Bone’s body before he could say anything else.
The green light blinked and Angele’s sight blurred. Bone had already disappeared from the scene after he could see things clearly again.
A wide smooth tunnel appeared on top of the building and Angele could see the night sky through the hole.
A green star was flying away from the area in the sky. It was Bone, his body coated with the green flame.
The tunnel on the ceiling slowly disappeared; it looked like a recovering wound.
The female servant was not surprised by the scene. She started talking after Bone left.
“Please follow me, master.”
Angele and the female servant went straight to the 27th floor—they stopped in front of a dark red room.
The door was open.
There was a blonde girl standing in the room—it was the same girl that Angele saw on his plate. There was also a group of single-eyed men with sharp ears that were tied up by the wall. They looked tired.
What caught Angele’s attention was not the living creatures—it was a pool of blood in the center.
The blood in the pool was boiling and a sweet fragrance permeated the air.
The blood pool was surrounded by four black snake statues and there was dark red blood coming out of their mouths.
The female servant bowed to Angele politely.
“Those are the gifts my master prepared for you. The blood in the pool is the essence of the creatures collected by the thousand-eyed family. Also, those single-eyed men are the inheritors of the single-eyed giant. The female human you asked for during the party is also here.”
“Good.” Angele nodded slightly. He looked satisfied. “You can leave now.”
The female servant left the room quickly.
Angele glanced around. The blonde girl and the single-eyed men were looking at him in fear. He shook his head slightly and walked straight to the blood pool.
“Eye Devil, where’s the reward you promised me?” Angele turned around and talked to a wall. He noticed that someone was hiding behind the wall when he entered the room and he was certain that it was Eye Devil.
Angele detected the difference between it and other walls because he had two bloodline signets.
The wall was ripped open by a large bloody eyeball. The black pupil in the eyeball twitched for several times and calmed down.
“The reward is here too, but I need to make one thing clear, I can’t give you any soul crystals. You can choose something else.” Eye Devil’s voice came from the eyeball.
“I was never going after the soul crystals. Tell me more about the Nightmare Realm. I noticed that something isn’t right after breaking the seal this time,” Angele spoke in a calm tone but his heart rate slightly increased. He was trying to play as someone that just broke the “sealed form” after a long sleep.
“The realms overlapped, it’s not a big deal. How long have you been sleeping… Whatever, let’s not waste the time. What do you want?” Eye Devil responded in a calm tone.
“What do you have to offer?” Angele questioned and his expression did not change.
“You know what, I acquired an inheritor’s secret technique not so long ago—it was from a sealed one that had similar abilities as you. I can give that to you for free, I think it’ll aid you greatly. The secret technique is too good to be the reward of what you did for me, but I might need you to help me again in the future.”
“Inheritor’s secret technique? Are you sure that the technique doesn’t come with a secret trap?” Angele wondered.
“Well, there’ll be traps but there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Many living beings had access to the secret techniques but only a few of them succeeded.” Eye Devil was not concerned.
“You’re right.” Angele nodded slightly.
“Alright then. Secret technique it is. Do you want me to deliver those things to you?”
“No, it’s fine. I’ll walk back and check the changes that happened to the environment on my way.” Angele declined the offer politely.
“Sure, I’ll see you again.” Eye Devil’s voice stopped after finishing the sentence and the eye on the wall slowly closed. A black scroll was released from the closing eye and dropped to Angele’s feet.
Angele picked the scroll up and put it in his pouch. He glared at the blood pool and there were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
An hour later, Angele slowly walked out of the black building.
A naked girl with blonde hair was following after him. The girl was surrounded by some red light, protecting her from being killed by the high temperature.
The two went across the city and passed through the lava river. They slowly stopped after they were far away from the city.
Angele turned around and stood on top of a small hill, overlooking the black city.
The red eye-shaped bloodline signet was blinking on his chest; the light was much more intense than the musical note from the signet of the scorpion woman.
Angele was playing with a small red stone in his hand.
He extracted the blood essence from the blood pool and turned it into a blood crystal. The energy from the blood pool was all stored in the crystal. He did not expect that there was so much power in the pool that it could be turned into a blood crystal.
The bloodline signet from the single-eyed giant was successfully buffed by the single-eyed slaves. The reward for attending the party was quite good.
He glared at the blonde girl.
“What’s your name?” Angele sent the words using energy particles.
“I… I don’t know…” The girl hesitated, her tongue was fixed by Eye Devil’s servant. “I forgot everything… Part of my memory was taken away by the blood cell and I don’t know anything about myself.”
“Is that so? The blood cell is interesting.” Angele decided not to ask too many questions. He did not want to save the girl, but he did not want to kill her either. He had his own rules—the girl did not offend him or take anything important away from him. There was no point in killing a human being for no reason; it was something that he would not do.
The girl could not survive alone in such a bizarre environment and Angele did not want others to know that he was a human being as Eye Devil might try to kill him if she found out about the truth.
Also, Angele did not want to bring a random stranger back to the mansion as he had no idea if the girl was a trap. He did not want to put Freia in the risk.
He thought for a while and took out the black scroll that he acquired from Eye Devil.
Angele unsealed the scroll and countless dark red runes appeared on the surface of the leather scroll.
The scroll started vibrating and rays of red light were released by it; they formed a translucent light screen that looked like a hologram in the air.
It was an enormous dark red map.
The map was divided into three areas separated by a lava river. The two areas on the left were in red and some tiny areas were marked in black. The larger area on the right turned from red to blue, and then blue to white.
“Phoenix, this is an interactive map called the Eye of the Truth. The information displayed on the map is collected by the eyes from the thousand-eyed bloodline inheritors. It’s an important map and I hope you don’t share it with anyone else. Ah, actually, they won’t be able to view the map without my authorization. If you want to know what is happening with the world, the only thing you need to do is checking the map.” Eye Devil’s voice slowly disappeared after finishing the explanation.
Angele glanced at the map without saying a word, he raised his left hand and pressed on the area on the left.
The size of the red area was increased by multiple times and it filled up the whole light screen. Clear views of the mountains, rivers, ruins, and forests were displayed in front of his eyes.
A sentence that was written in the universal ancient language was displayed at the bottom of the map: “Two hourglasses until the next time the Oblivion Realm overlaps with the word.”
There were two red wooden hourglasses behind the sentence and the sand inside the hourglasses already started dropping.
“Overlap of the Oblivion Realm?” Angele was a bit surprised.
He looked at the scroll and opened the second half of it.
Red light flashed on the surface of the light screen and the scene changed.
A man’s deep voice came from the light screen.
“According to the intel collected by the thousand-eyed bloodline inheritors, the Oblivion Realm has been moving toward our Nightmare Realm in the last several years. The Oblivion Realm is the realm of death and corruption; it is a totally different realm than the Nightmare Realm, something like this should never happen. I think all the realms are merging with each other, but it’s just an assumption. We’re not the only example here.”
A female voice joined the conversation.
“You mean the realms will change if they contact each other and this is our best chance to explore the other realms. We should take over their realms and conquer them! We haven’t got the chance to communicate with the other realms since the wizards that could talk to us disappeared. This is our best opportunity! We shall take everything that enters our sight!”
“You’re way too aggressive, we should wait for the old bastards from the other realms to move first. It’s impossible for the Nightmare Realm to take over other realms if we use a plan like yours every time the realms overlap. Alright, it’s about time for us to end the broadcast. This is Collins and Blue Feather from the thousand eyes. Please tune in again tomorrow for the new broadcast…”
Angele was speechless after listening to the broadcast. He slowly closed the scroll.
He thought the conversation was a record of a meeting or something and he did not expect it to be a broadcast…
