Angele and Eye Devil walked together along the hallway on the first floor.
The hallway was open; on the left, it led to the living room of the main building, and on the right was the Ness River.
The sun was setting and there was some thin mist above the surface of the river, like floating silk towels.
Angele was leading the way, glaring at the dark surface of Ness River.
“The river is great but it’s the only attractive thing in my territory. I hope it doesn’t disappoint you.” He was checking Eye Devil’s behavior constantly as he walked as he had to make sure that she was not trying to attack him.
Eye Devil followed after Angele with a smile on her face.
“I’m not disappointed at all. I like your place more than my own. It’s nice and quiet.”
“Well, it’s nice you can say that.” Angele shook his head and he was a bit speechless.
They walked past the pool with clear water.
“It’s a pool that I built a while ago, I swim in it from time to time,” Angele introduced.
“Interesting, a swimming pool, huh?” Eye Devil glanced at the pool curiously.
They left the pool area and arrived at the garden quickly.
“Alright, this is my garden and I have some rare plants here,” Angele pointed at the garden.
Eye Devil did not seem interested.
Orphie and Freia were taking care of the sunflowers carefully, they were watering and pruning the flowers.
Eye Devil’s sight fell upon Orphie.
“I have a lot of food like that in my city. Just tell me if you need more. I’ll ship them to you.”
“Well, if it’s free.” Angele smiled.
“It won’t be free.” Eye Devil rolled her eyes. “Alright, let’s go.” Suddenly, she stopped before leaving the garden. Eye Devil quickly turned around and stared at Orphie again.
“Huh? The power…?” Eye Devil looked surprised. “An inheritor? Wait!”
Angele was surprised but his expression did not change. He waited for Eye Devil to finish her words.
“The power is interesting. I think I detected the power from a scorpion king from it…” Eye Devil turned around and looked at Angele. “Phoenix, can you gift that pet to me? I’ll send you twenty better ones later and you can do whatever you want to them. What do you think?”
“Sorry, this is a prototype and I still need it.” Angele shook his head and declined the request. “Alright, let me explain.” He planted the merged bloodline in Orphie’s body not so long ago and Eye Devil would find out the truth just by doing some simple tests on the girl.
Eye Devil stared at Angele for several minutes and smiled. She did not say anything else.
“Let’s go. I’ll show you the other areas.” Angele turned around and started walking again.
They passed through the garden and arrived at the arena.
“This is where I practice my skills, only physical skills, energy skills will probably destroy the platform. Also, I sometimes…” Angele was interrupted before he could finish the sentence.
“I’ll give you 100 slaves for that piece of meat, what do you say?” Eye Devil did not give up.
Angele shrugged. “Well, I can’t, sorry.”
There was an apologetical smile on Angele’s face.
“300! Plus a piece of high-quality noble meat!” Eye Devil’s expression turned cold. “Phoenix, think twice before you answer me.”
The smile disappeared from Angele’s face as well, he stared at Eye Devil.
“Eye Devil, it’s not about how many pieces of meat you can give me.”
Eye Devil stood in the center of the hallway, invisible energy vortexes appeared around her body and the wind started blowing in the whole area.
Angele and Eye Devil stared at each other calmly, but no one moved. The atmosphere was getting heavier and heavier.
“Phoenix, don’t be too greedy…” Eye Devil pursed her lips. “You better give me what I want…”
“I told you already, it’s not about the price,” Angele spoke in a deep voice. “Eye Devil, don’t make this hard for both of us.”
Eye Devil was still staring at Angele in the eyes.
Several minutes later.
She suddenly chuckled.
“Whatever, it’s just a piece of meat. We shall not be so hard on each other just for that. Not worth it.”
Angele loosened his expression as the atmosphere lightened. “You’re right. Alright, I have some other places that I want to you show you.”
He turned around and started walking; however, he noticed the intense energy wave coming from behind immediately.
Angele had no time to think, he turned around and released several flame beads.
The black light and red light exploded at the same time but the hallway was not damaged. It almost looked like nothing happened, and the energy waves disappeared several seconds later.
Angele jumped back slightly and looked at Eye Devil.
“Really? Eye Devil.”
Eye Devil stood there quietly and a sweet smile appeared on her face.
“It was just an accident.” She did not look concerned. “Also, I wanted to know if your power has already recovered. You said that your physical form was still weak several days ago. However, I can see that you’re recovering just by looking at your reactions.”
“Is that so?” Angele stared at her calmly.
“Come on, I’m not stupid. This is your territory…” Eye devil chuckled but Angele was still staring at her.
She finally gave up. “Alright, alright. I won’t try to take it from you. I didn’t know you would be so angry.”
“It’s great if you understand.” Angele narrowed his eyes. “Alright, thanks for visiting me, but I won’t walk you home, please be careful when you leave.”
He was asking Eye Devil to leave.
“Are you sure you don’t want to spend the night with me? I’ll do anything for you as a compensation.” Eye Devil rolled her purple eyes slightly and she was trying to seduce Angele. “Any position, any hole, also, you can do it with your true form.”
Angele was not interested at all. “Thanks, but I’ll pass. It’s getting late, and I want to rest. Please.”
Eye Devil sighed and she looked a bit sad. “Fine, I’ll visit you again later. Am I not attractive enough to you?” She turned around and her body quickly became a ball of purple flame.
The fist-sized flame flew through the defensive barriers with no problem and disappeared into the night sky.
Angele watched Eye Devil leave quietly.
Several minutes later.
He suddenly covered his mouth with both hands—blood was leaking through the gaps between his fingers.
“I was injured just by one strike?” Angele removed the blood from his hands. “Eye Devil is breaking the seal and even her doppelganger can damage me. I probably should’ve transformed…”
Angele remained silent after finishing the sentence. He looked at the direction that Eye Devil left and there were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
Half a month later…
In the Sherry Forest of the main world.
It was early in the morning. The sunlight landed on the ground through the gaps between the tree leaves and white mist permeated the air in the forest.
A man wearing a long black robe was moving quickly between the trees, his footsteps a bit loud in the quiet forest.
The tall trees and the vines on the ground could not stop him from advancing; it seemed like the man was familiar with the environment here.
He slowly stopped on a cliff several minutes later. There was an enormous tree in front of him.
The tree trunk had a diameter of more than ten meters, the shadow of the tree hundreds of meters long. There were light dots from the sunlight blinking on the surface of the ground as there were still gaps between the tree leaves.
There were some dark green vines with white buds on the tree’s trunk.
The black robe stepped forward and stood in front of the tree. He removed the hood but was still wearing a black helmet.
It was a normal metal helmet that had the texture of bronze. The helmet was just used to cover his face.
The man tapped on one of the white buds slightly.
The bud blossomed and it turned into an attractive white flower. An intense fragrance permeated the air as the flower blossomed. It was a mysterious smell that was a bit like the smell of an apple.
Strangely, there was a white human face in the center of the flower, about the size of a nail. The eyes on the face slowly opened and looked at the man in front of it.
“Green, you’re here,” the human face spoke in a deep tone.
The man in black was Angele. He returned to the main world to recover and noticed the message from the Dark Wizard Tower. It was about if he would become a core member of the organization.
Angele thought for a while and decided to answer the call; however, he had to sign the soul contract with the organization before he could become a core member. It was a new contract that was developed recently; the consequences would be terrifying if he broke the contract.
Dark Wizard Tower started recruiting core members right after finishing developing the contract and the organization was trying to turn its elite members into a strong force.
There were many elite members that were not sure if they should become core members of the organization due to the new soul contract. The elite members had high potential and most of them were already relatively strong when compared to normal members. If they could become core members of the organization after signing the contract, they would have to be loyal to the organization. It was a great way to create a strong force.
Angele knew that something big would happen to the Dark Wizard Tower right after reading the message.
