Translator: Leo Editor: Kurisu
Angele rubbed his teeth with the right hand and it felt like touching the blade of a saw.
‘I don’t even know what my true form will look like. The true form is the basis of all the inheritor’s secret techniques. I have the scorpion woman’s bloodline, the single-eyed giant’s bloodline, the tree elf’s bloodline, and my soul that is from the earth… I wonder what will happen if I combine all of them together…
Angele waved his right hand and the mirror disappeared; he then quickly created a black mask on his face.
Turning around, he opened the door and left the reading room.
Angele noticed that it seemed like Orphie and Freia had an argument. They sat far away from each other and no one was talking.
He glanced at the two girls and walked to them.
“Orphie, tell me if there’s an area full of large creatures around here.” Angele was not sure how strong he was after his body was upgraded. He wanted to test his power on the creatures of the Nightmare Realm.
Orphie quickly stood up as she saw Angele walking to her, however, she hesitated after hearing the question.
“Master, I’m not familiar with the surroundings, but I know that there was a creature called the Water Devil in the rivers around the Dark Cloud City. It was a strong creature and you can go have a look.”
“Dark Cloud City, huh?” Angele’s brow furrowed, he did not want to travel that far. “Well, it’s fine, I’ll try to find some in the areas close to the mansion.”
Freia walked to Angele and jumped into his arms. “Green, why are you wearing a mask?” She questioned curiously. The girl was over 20 years old; however, she stayed in the mansion for so long that her mental age was still very young.
“There’s a problem with my face and I don’t want you to get scared,” Angele rubbed Freia’s hair softly and responded gently. “Alright, you two should stay in the mansion, I’ll be back before you know it.”
Angele calmed Freia down and assigned a room to Orphie, he then quickly left the mansion.
He stood outside the barrier and looked around.
On the left, there was the Ness River, and on the right, there was the forest that led to the Dark Cloud City.
He hesitated for a second and walked to the pass between the river and the forest.
The path led to an empty ground that looked endless. Angele’s sight was blocked by the thin gray mist.
Angele walked along the path and passed by several dark green willow trees. The trees’ long green branches were swaying in the wind.
He heard something vibrating in the air after walking for a while.
Angele slowly stopped and looked around. Everything was coated by the mist—the further away he was from the mansion, the thicker the mist would be.
He could barely see the green surface of the river and the only thing that was clear in his sight was the mud under his feet.
The noise was getting louder and louder, it sounded like there was a group of bees approaching.
Angele chanted an incantation in a low voice and countless flaming eyes appeared around his body. The eyes vanished into the air after about one second.
He raised his right hand and released a lava ball in the direction of the noise.
The dark red lava ball slowly blew the mist away with the heat wave it was releasing.
A blurry eye appeared in the center of the lava ball and was observing the surroundings.
A red light screen appeared in front of Angele’s body—it showed the scene the eye on the lava ball was seeing.
The left side and the right side were engulfed in the white mist and the mud on the ground was moving backward. Angele could hear the wind blowing from the light screen.
Suddenly, an enormous shadow appeared on the light screen.
Angele’s pupils constricted.
The creature that appeared in front of him was a humongous black dragonfly.
The dragonfly was more than ten meters long and the translucent wings behind it were vibrating. Also, the way the dragonfly was flying looked identical to a bee’s.
The dragonfly was slowly flying on above the surface of the river—it seemed like the dragonfly was looking for food.
The mouthpart of the dragonfly moved slightly, the lava ball was already inside its sight.
Suddenly, the dragonfly disappeared from the light screen as the lava ball exploded. The light screen turned into flames and slowly dropped to the ground.
The intense vibration noise was still approaching, it was getting closer and closer.
Angele’s expression changed, he created a long silver sword with bright burning flames on its tip.
A black shadow flashed in front of his eyes as he prepared the sword.
Something hit his chest hard, but it was blocked by the black shield created by the metal force field.
‘The strength of the creature is terrifying…’ Angele stood there and he did not move an inch. His Strength was 21 and with such strength, he could easily handle the impact.
Angele held the sword tight and slashed forward.
The black shadow was approaching; it looked like the shadow was going for the blade.
The black shadow was blown away by the impact and it seemed like the shadow stopped after hitting a tree.
The sword in Angele’s hand looked like the edge of a crescent moon.
Angele’s brow furrowed and the sword was absorbed by his skin. The alloy was not hard enough for his increased attributes.
He stepped forward, the mist slowly disappearing, and finally got a clear view of the scene.
Two of the large trees in the forest were destroyed and the large black dragonfly’s body sank into the trunk of the third tree in the middle. The dragonfly’s left eye was cut in half and its right eye was cracked. Its wings broke into pieces, but the dragonfly was still moving and struggling.
‘The dragonfly has a strong body…’ Angele praised the monster in mind. ‘I didn’t use all my power but the physical damage was over 300 degrees and it could easily crack the hardest sulfurous crystal. But this monster did not die after taking the direct hit…’
Angele walked to the dragonfly and raised his right index finger, aiming at the monster’s head.
A silver needle flashed in the air.
A blood hole appeared in the center of the dragonfly’s head.
‘Scan the gene structure for me and check if the dragonfly has any ancient bloodline.’ Angele ordered.
Blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
‘Task created, scanning…’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears.
The hologram of the dragonfly appeared in Angele’s sight. The hologram quickly shifted to the blood hole on the dragonfly’s head and the detailed picture of the creature’s white flesh was displayed in front of his eyes.
Seconds later, the scene changed again and it turned into a hexagonal cell.
The hologram disappeared from Angele’s sight.
‘Analysis completed. No ancient bloodline detected. No special ability detected. The dragonfly’s strength came from its special body structure.’
‘Body structure?’ For some reason, the word reminded Angele of the skeleton soldier. Also, he realized that there was a basic application of the runes mentioned in the inheritor’s secret technique.
‘Maybe I should give it a try later…’ Angele looked a bit excited.
He left the dragonfly’s dead body on the ground and walked along the river. This time, he wanted to see what he could do as a rank 2 wizard. He applied the wind energy buff to his body so he could move much faster than before.
Angele decided not to rely on the power of the bloodline when trying to fight against the monsters in the forest, so that he would know how much the bloodlines had been helping him.
Two more dragonflies appeared above the river from the left—Angele could hear the noise made by their wings.
The dragonfly on the left was black and the one on the right was red. They were smaller than the one Angele just killed.
Angele released two lava balls without locating the target, then quickly stepped back and moved to the side. He raised his right hand and started doing the gestures that would trigger the spells. He was also taking out tubes and bottles using the left hand. All the containers were quickly slammed on the ground.
*BAM BAM BAM*
An earth golem and two wind golems were created on the ground beside the river after the loud noises.
The dark brown earth golem was more than three meters tall. It hit its chest with the fists several times and opened its mouth.
Two translucent wind golems were rotating around the earth golem and releasing light green energy strings. They were trying to trap the two dragonflies using the energy strings; the strings were being destroyed by the dragonflies constantly, but they successfully slowed them down.
One of the flies failed to dodge the strike from the earth golem and it was thrown into the river. The other dragonfly grasped this chance and removed a large piece of rock from the golem’s body with its attack.
Angele’s expression changed, the earth golem was not created with simple mud—it was made with granite. The body of the golem was much stronger and harder than normal earth elementals; however, the granite golem could not recover its body like the golems that were made with mud.
Angele was certain that normal earth golems would easily be destroyed by the dragonfly’s strike.
He chanted an incantation with a low voice and created several flying fire beads over his palm. They looked like a ruby bracelet that was surrounded by flames.
“Pyroblast!” he shouted and released the ruby bracelet from his hand. The bracelet flew toward the black dragonfly that was thrown into the river.
A circle of intense flame exploded in the air.
The dragonfly was blown back into the water and started sinking.
Angele glanced at the granite golem and the two wind golems that were fighting with the red dragonfly, then quickly casted a level 2 wind category binding spell.
Countless green strings spurted out of his hands and flew toward the dragonfly; the strings looked identical to the ones released by the wind golems. The two types of strings combined together and finally slowed the red dragonfly down.
The granite golem hit the dragonfly with its right fist.
The red dragonfly leaned down and hit the ground with its tail, then charged toward the golem’s fist.
The noise was loud and deep.
The golem leaned backward after taking the hit, it seemed like the dragonfly was stronger.
The red dragonfly made some noise and rotated in the air. It started charging toward the golem again.
The granite golem lost its balance after taking the hit. The red dragonfly increased its speed and hit the golem again before it could regain the balance.
The wind golems and Angele could barely catch the dragonfly with their energy strings.
Although Angele could see the dragonfly’s movements easily, he wanted to fight with the creature using only rank 2 wizard’s power. He asked Zero to do the simulation, and it seemed it was impossible for a rank 2 wizard to catch the dragonfly using spells. Also, he would not be able to predict the dragonfly’s movements or track it down with the mentality wave as a rank 2 wizard.
