Translator: Leo Editor: Kurisu
Angele was heading to the mansion with the blonde girl. He applied a thin layer of dark metal to help her defend against the strange creatures.
Several days later, the Dark Cloud City finally appeared in their sight again.
Angele stood in the dark forest as the sun started rising—he overlooked the yellow city that was sitting quietly on the plain. The yellow city was deadly silent in the wind mixed with the sand. There was not a single person walking around the city.
The blonde girl stood behind Angele and looked at the city as well.
“I think… I’ve been here…” She suddenly opened her mouth. “Everything looks so familiar to me.”
“Familiar?” Angele turned around and saw the confused look on the girl’s face; there was sadness in her eyes. He knew that the city reminded the girl of something but she was trying to hide it from Angele.
Angele narrowed his eyes, the red eye-shaped bloodline signet shined, the string around the signet released some red light.
“It’s fine if you can’t remember…” He raised his right hand patted the girl’s head softly. The gentle expression on his face calmed the girl down.
Angele rubbed the girl’s soft blonde hair and the red light disappeared from his chest.
A strange noise echoed in his ears.
Countless images were transferred into his mind like a movie.
The blonde girl held the edges her dress and walked down the carriage. She walked to the meeting hall that was full of guests with a gentle smile on her face and there was a man in a white suit by her side. The golden light illuminated on the two’s bodies, they were elegant and polite. They drew everyone’s attention with the golden light surrounding them.
“Dear Angelica, the party is starting, we should hurry,” the young man spoke in a gentle tone.
They joined the party. The two mixed with the noble guests and started dancing along the music.
Suddenly, the sky was torn apart and the earth started shaking. A group of men that was surrounded by flames rushed into the hall and they started executing everyone in their sight.
The girl started running with the young man and the guards she brought here; however, the burning men caught up quickly.
The girl asked the guards to draw the monsters’ attention and she wanted the young man to attack them from behind. However, the man gave the girl one final glance and started running away, leaving the girl to face the monsters alone.
The images disappeared after the final scene.
Only a split of a second passed when Angele was viewing the images.
He slowly lowered his hand. “Do you want to go check the city out? It’s your hometown, right?”
The girl stared at the Dark Cloud City and tears were running down her chin like a river.
The girl had already learned a lot about Angele in the last several days; the man treated her like a brother, he was always so kind and polite.
“It’s fine, master, let’s just head to your place,” the girl lowered her head and responded in a low voice. “This is no longer my hometown, all my friends were killed by the…”
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes as he nodded.
“Let’s make one thing clear, although you’re my test subject, I won’t hurt you for no reason. If you’re willing to cooperate, your body will be strengthened after some minor damage from the experiments.”
“I’m ready, master. I’m grateful that you didn’t eat me back in the hall.” The girl raised her head. Although there were still tears on her cheek, she had already calmed down.
“Alright, let’s go. I need to you to become friends with another girl at my place.” Angele turned around and started walking to the Ness River.
The girl gave the Dark Cloud city one final glance, it seemed like she wanted to memorize the look of the city. She ran toward Angele as the young man was already meters away.
The two slowly vanished into the vibrant bushes of the forest.
Ten days later, by the Ness River.
The golden sunlight of the afternoon illuminated on the surface of the river and the mansion.
The leaves from the trees on the left of the mansion were dancing in the gentle wind.
Two people stepped out of the forest slowly. One was tall and the other one was short, and they were both wearing long metal robes. Not a single inch of their skin was exposed to the air.
“Finally…” The man in the front removed the black mask from his face, revealing his pale skin—it was Angele.
He turned around and looked at the girl. “Do you remember your name? What should I call you?”
The girl opened her mouth but she hesitated. “I don’t. Master, please give me a new name.”
Angele nodded slightly. “Alright, I’ll just call you Orphie from today. It means ‘forget’ in the chaos language.”
“Forget… Orphie…” The painful memory struck the girl again but she tried her best to hide it. It seemed like the memories were coming back to her.
Angele looked at the mansion. “Let’s move. It has been a while since I left my territory.”
He stepped forward and a red string spurted out of the black cloak, stabbing into the mud on the ground.
The red string returned to his cloak within a second—it was formed by Angele’s long red hair.
Angele was not interested in the tiny spy he just killed and he just started walking again. Orphie glanced at the ground, she noticed that blood was leaking out of the mud and she was a bit scared. The girl stopped looking immediately and ran toward Angele.
The girl had no way to survive in such a bizarre environment alone. The girl had no crystal card device and she lost part of her memory so there would be nothing she could when facing dangerous creatures alone even if she knew how to activate the crystal card device.
Angele stepped into the sea of vines in front of the mansion. The vines on the ground already turned black; they moved aside to let him pass through.
Angele was advancing slowly; the blonde girl behind him was checking the surroundings constantly. She already noticed the remains of the dead creatures between the vines and some of the vines were soaked in colorful blood.
They finally arrived at the defensive barrier about one minute later.
Angele raised his right hand and pressed on the barrier, he lowered his hand after several seconds and grabbed Orphie’s hand. They then stepped into the barrier together.
It felt like walking through a large bubble.
They finally returned to the mansion.
Angele pressed on his chest and released a ball of fire. The fireball turned into a red bird that was surrounded by a golden glow. The bird swung its wings and flew toward the mansion slowly.
“Phoenix!” The door of the main building was pushed open—a girl jumped out of the door and grabbed Phoenix in her arms.
“Green! You’re back!” Freia was still wearing the gray sweater with a pair of thick cotton socks. Her long black hair trailed over her shoulders and the hair on her left shoulder was braided. The girl looked pure and cute.
“Yeah.” Angele nodded. “I brought a friend back for you. This is Orphie and she’s my new lab assistant.”
Freia looked at Orphie and blinked her eyes curiously. “Orphie… You’re the first human being I met besides Green, my brother, and my father.”
“You’ve been living in the mansion your whole life?” Orphie sounded surprised.
Angele watched the two girls greeting each other, he walked away as the two started chatting.
Freia had been practicing sword skills for years and Angele was certain that Orphie would not be able to hurt Freia. He checked Orphie’s memory multiple times on the way and made sure that Eye Devil did not plant anything inside the girl’s body.
Angele did not care about the soul stones, the map, or the inheritors of the single-eyed giant. The inheritor’s secret technique that Eye Devil gave him was the most important item he’d acquired this time.
Angele quickly walked to the second floor as he entered the main building. He entered the reading room and locked the door. A black snake rune flashed on the surface of the door.
He quickly walked to the lab platform that was covered with random items.
All the random items were blown away to the side.
Angele pressed on his chest using the right hand. The musical signet and the eye-shaped signet started shining at the same time; red glow was released from Angele’s body and the red light engulfed the whole room.
Every object in the room was illuminated by the red light.
Angele took a deep breath and calmed down after the preparation was completed. He relaxed and put down the filter mask on the corner of a table.
He slowly took out a stick that looked like a flute from the pouch.
It was a yellow stick, its surface covered in complicated flower and vine engravings. There was also a mermaid engraving in the center of the stick. It was the carrier of the secret technique that Eye Devil gifted him.
Angele held the stick in hand and observed it carefully.
“It’s a musical instrument that looks like a flute…” He noticed that there were many tiny holes on the stick. “The flute is infused with fire energy particles but mermaid should be the symbol of water… That’s strange.”
Angele played with the flute for a while but he did not know find the right way to activate it.
‘Create task. Scan the object in my hand.’ He had to rely on the biochip.
‘Task created, scanning…’
A hologram of the flute was displayed in Angele’s sight; the flute started spinning and it was scanned by several translucent blue strings.
Seconds later, rows of data slowly appeared under the flute.
