Angele knew that Freia was planning something, but he was not concerned. He melted the long sword and absorbed it into his skin. The metal layer on his body was made with normal precious metals after the fight with Eye Devil and the magic resistance was much lower than before.
Without the magic resistance material from the claw warriors, there was not much he could do. Also, the claw warriors almost disappeared from this world and Angele was lucky that he had met several ones on the west coast. However, the wizard culture was much more developed in the central continent, and such materials would only be used for the gear specially crafted for wars. It was nearly impossible for organizations to share them with the members. Angele thought that the ones he met were trained by the owner of the mansion.
He could probably get some claws by asking Vivian, but the Elemental Hand was at war and he did not want to bother her with unimportant matters.
Anything could happen in the Nightmare Realm; he would find the items he needed sooner or later.
Angele took Freia to the dining hall and they started having dinner.
The only noise in the hall was made by knives and forks. The three did not say anything, they just focused on finishing the food.
“Orphie, come to my room after dinner,” Angele suddenly spoke in a calm tone. “I mean, the reading room.”
“Sure, master.” Orphie sounded a bit surprised but her expression did not change. She knew the day would come—she found that the way Angele dealt with Freia was a bit strange and she thought that an “old monster” like Angele must have some weird hobby.
Freia acted like she did not hear the conversation and was just eating her food.
The white bread and meat corn soup were finished by her within seconds; she almost choked on the food, but she hated the black pepper steak and she did not even touch it.
“I’m full.” She put down the silverware, pushed the chair away, and left the dining hall.
Angele glanced at Freia, and again, he knew that the girl was planning something. After finishing the dinner with Orphie, Angele turned the silverware into a large ball, which was absorbed by his skin. The leftovers were collected in a bowl, then frozen by the energy particles.
The silverware was controlled by the metal force field, but the remains of the food would just fall down.
Angele moved the plates over to the rubbish bin before turning them back to the metal liquid; the remains would drop into the bin easily.
He took Orphie to the second floor and entered the reading room after cleaning the table.
The door was locked by Angele and the black snake rune appeared on its surface.
“Alright, take a seat.” A gentle smile appeared on Angele’s face. Orphie was still glancing around and he sat down first on a chair beside the window.
Orphie nodded. “Thanks.” She sat down on the opposite side. “What should I do?” Angele did not do anything to her in the last several days so she did not think that she was in danger.
“There’s something I need to tell you.” Angele cast an illusion spell on himself to cover his strange appearance after returning to the mansion as he did not want Freia to get scared.
He just looked like a normal human being at the moment.
“I think you know that the reason why I took you away from Eye Devil was not that I wanted to save you. You don’t have anywhere else to go, so I took you back to my mansion. To be honest, I have several human friends and I don’t want to eat you, but we’re just strangers to each other and I don’t want to give you the resources for free. That’s the problem.”
Orphie was wearing a white one piece and with a long blonde ponytail. She looked cute and pure.
She remained calm. “I can understand what you’re worried about, what should I do to earn your trust? Or how should I pay you in return? You know, if you kick me out of the mansion, I’ll die within minutes. There are no other choices for me to choose.”
“I’m glad that you can understand.” Angele smiled. “I just wanted you to help me with a small experiment.
“I’ll do whatever you want me to.” Orphie nodded.
Angele nodded; he looked satisfied. “Good, I like people that are willing to listen. You need to pay if you want anything, that’s the truth of this world.”
He stood up. “Let’s get started now.”
“As you wish.” Orphie stood up as well.
Angele pointed at Orphie.
An invisible force slowly lifted Orphie up and helped her lay down in the air.
Angele waved his right hand.
Orphie’s body was moved to the platform in the center of the room and lowered down.
Angele walked to the platform and gently removed all the clothes from Orphie’s body.
The girl was trembling slightly but she tried her best to calm down. She never wore any clothes in the blood cell and she already got used to it, but she felt a bit uncomfortable being stared at by a male.
Orphie watched Angele remove her clothing and take out a blue test tube from the shelf. He slowly sprinkled the powder on the girl’s stomach.
The powder landed on Orphie’s skin; it looked like tiny ice cubes and was extremely cold. She could feel that the bottom half of her body became numb due to the coldness of the powder.
“What’s this?” she could not help but ask. “It’s freezing.”
Angele responded as he sprinkled the powder carefully. “A powder that will keep you safe, you’ll get used to it later.”
Orphie bit her lips, her body was getting colder and colder. She could barely move her limbs and she started having trouble breathing.
Angele looked at the girl carefully.
He built a wheel-shaped magic circle on the girl’s stomach. Her skin was white and clean.
The blue powder was absorbed by the girl’s skin quietly as it landed on her body. It looked like the magic circle became part of her body after everything was done.
“Don’t worry, I won’t hurt you… the only thing you need to do is relax, don’t think about anything.” Angele’s gentle voice sounded warm and comfortable. It helped Orphie relax. There was a strange energy wave surrounding her body.
Angele was satisfied with the start of the experiment.
He flicked his finger.
The blue magic circle on Orphie’s stomach started burning; the dark red flame brightened up the room slightly.
The girl’s body was warmed up by the flame quickly.
Angele made several gestures in front of his chest and strings of red energy started gathering in the air. The energy strings thickened; they looked like countless red ribbons that were sinking into Orphie’s stomach.
“Helinmu, Yasuweila, the moon of reproduction,” Angele quickly chanted the incantation and created a long fire chain between his hands.
The flames on the chain slowly faded away, turning into countless red light dots that dropped on the magic circle.
Angele’s expression slowly turned serious.
He waved his right hand and blood appeared on his right index finger. He quickly pressed it on the magic circle.
It looked like the red blood was sucked into the magic circle by something as the blood contacted her skin.
Angele slowly lowered his index finger and looked at the wound—it already stopped bleeding. His high Stamina helped him recover within seconds.
“Alright, you can just do your daily routine like usual, but you need to let me know if anything happens to your body.” Angele looked at Orphie—the girl was still trying to figure out what happened.
“Understood.” Orphie’s brow furrowed and she slowly sat up. The girl was blushing and her skin was coated with a red glow.
She looked at the magic circle on her stomach—the circle only had two levels beside the complicated strings.
It was a circle and a triangle; the whole magic circle was simple, but there was a small red meat cell in the center of the circle, pumping. The thing looked a bit strange, but she could not feel any pain or itchiness.
“Alright, there’s one thing I need to let you know about the experiment,” Angele started explaining. “Your body was modified to fit the blood cell and you could no longer reproduce as a human being. You need to understand that if my experiment succeeded, you’ll be able to reproduce again, so please be prepared for the possible changes.”
Orphie was a bit surprised at first but she looked excited.
“Good, you can leave now.” Angele waved his right hand.
“Yes, Master.” Orphie grabbed her clothes and left the room without putting them on.
The door was slowly closed.
Angele stood in front of the platform, blue strings flashing in his eyes. No one knew what he was thinking. The glowing crystals on the wall were out of energy and the only source of light in the room were the burning torches.
The light from the flames shined on Angele’s face as his expression changed several times.
‘If I can succeed this time… With my blood, the reproduction ability of Orphie, and the inheritor’s secret technique, I can probably validate my final assumption.’
He planted his own blood into Orphie’s abdomen and raised the merged bloodline like a seed.
If he could succeed, he would be able to get his own inheritor—an inheritor with the merged ancient bloodline.
Although the inheritor would be weaker than him, the inheritor would still be able to develop its power in the Nightmare Realm.
The pure bloodlines extracted by the biochip were stronger than the lords in this realm—this was Angele’s biggest secret, and something that he could rely on.
If he could improve the inheritor with the blood planting method, he only needed to pay a little to acquire a strong assistant.
That was probably the reason why the sealed forms wanted to produce their own inheritors.
