The Wizard World - Chapter 412
Chapter 412: The Gate (1)
Translator: Leo Editor: Kurisu
“Is this an illusion?” Narrowing his eyes, Angele walked around the gate.
The black gate sat quietly on the shore of the river and there was nothing behind it.
Angele returned to the front of the gate and peeked inside again.
The smooth beach, the blue sea, and the clear sky, everything looked the same. However, the place was too empty and it looked like a large piece of sapphire.
He could hear the noise made by the waves and smell the fragrance of the sea.
Angele thought for a while, then raised his right hand and reached into the gate.
He did not feel anything; there was no defensive spell or barrier by the gate, and it seemed like the air inside the gate was also the same.
Angele hesitated but he still slowly stepped into the gate.
He looked back as he stood on the other side of the gate. Angele could see the thick white fog over the Ness River.
The black gate was still standing on the beach alone, and it was the only thing Angele could see in his sight. There was no stone or any living creature.
Angele stayed calm, he formed an eye-shaped circle with his hands in front of his chest.
The slow incantation echoed in the air.
A red eye appeared between his hands. The eye was formed by red flames and it was burning in the air, releasing eye-blinding red light.
Angele pointed upward.
The fist-sized eye quickly flew into the air, then looked down. The view of the eye was displayed in Angele’s sight.
On the edge of the endless sea, the smooth beach looked like a large piece of blue paper with a tall black gate standing on it, and a young man in a black robe was looking around by the gate.
Angele could see that the area ahead was covered with thin blue mist and it seemed like there was something spinning in it.
The fire eye burnt out and cracked.
Angele’s brow furrowed, he thought about the scene he just saw and went around the stone gate. He looked at the other side of the beach, but the only thing there was the thin blue mist he saw earlier.
He tapped the edge of the black stone gate, leaving a glowing black rune on the surface, and walked toward the blue mist.
About ten minutes later, a large farm appeared in his front.
The farm was built on the beach, but it did not look like it belonged to the blue beach.
The farmland was divided into four equal areas and there was a tall windmill standing in the center of the land.
Strangely, the fans of the windmill were replaced by four black butterfly wings.
There was no wind in the blue mist. The fans of the windmill looked like spinning black butterflies that were flying without the help of the wind.
It was a large farm. Angele could see the blue mist on the other side of the farm and he could hear the noise made by the windmill. It seemed like the windmill he saw was not the only one on the farm.
The noise made by the windmill was mixed with the noise made by the sea waves.
Angele stepped onto the farm while checking the surroundings carefully. There were no crops on the farm, it was just a clean gray land.
He could smell the fragrance of flowers after walking for several minutes. Angele approached one of the windmills and stopped in front of it. The butterfly wings were moving above his head.
Angele touched the wall of the mill carefully.
It was cold, soft, and smooth. He pressed down and created a small hole in the wall.
Angele went around the windmill and noticed that there was no entrance to it.
Suddenly, Angele heard a noise that sounded like hoe hitting the mud.
The same noise went into his ears again.
Angele looked around and noticed that there was someone hitting the mud with a hoe in the blue mist.
Angele’s lips moved, he chanted the incantation without saying a word. Red light flashed on the surface of his body quickly.
He took out a glass tube with blue liquid inside from the pouch and held it in hand as he walked to the man.
Angele could finally see the man as he got closer.
It was a middle-aged bald man that had the same height as him. He was wearing a black farmer suit, holding a black hoe in his hand; there was no expression on his face.
The man was hitting the mud with his hoe and it seemed like he did not notice Angele’s presence.
“Hey…” Angele stopped when he was two meters away from the man and asked loudly, “Do you know what this place is?” He was speaking the ancient language.
The bald man turned around and looked at Angele with his soulless eyes.
Angele noticed that there was a white windmill on top of the man’s bald head. The windmill was spinning slowly; it looked like a plant that rooted in the man’s head.
The man looked at Angele and it seemed like he did not hear Angele’s words.
“Can you understand my word?” Angele questioned.
There was no response.
Angele scrunched his brow and took two steps back.
The man quickly turned around and started hitting the ground with his hoe again.
Angele’s expression turned serious and he returned the potion to the pouch. He touched the second pair of eyes he had with the right hand.
“I shall reveal my true form.”
The second pair of eyes opened and the glowing golden eyes rolled.
Angele’s body started increasing in size and a long black horn appeared on top of his head. His horn quickly reached his waist and the teeth in his mouth looked sharp like a sawtooth.
‘I can check the memory of the creatures that are weaker than me. Let me see if this guy has any valuable information in his brain.’ Angele’s true form had the similar power as a rank 4 wizard, but his mentality was low. His body was strong, his defensive ability and recovery were incredible.
The petrification ability was eliminated by the bloodline of the ancient one-eyed giant. The bloodline of the scorpion woman had merged with the bloodline of the ancient giant and those two bloodlines created a balance in Angele’s body.
Angele’s high attributes came from the bloodline of the one-eyed giant, his memory check and the illusion abilities came from the bloodline of the scorpion woman.
He had used the memory check ability once on the human girl he saved from Eye Devil’s party. The memory check ability was different from the one used by the wizards, it would not damage the target’s body; however, it was weaker than the method used by the wizards. The only thing Angele could get was what the target was thinking and there were certain limitations.
Angele was more than four meters tall and he was wearing a black armor that was covered with bone spikes. His four eyes were blinking at the same time. With the long red hair and the long horn, the man looked like a terrifying monster from fairy tales.
He stood in front of the farmer, the shadow of his body covering the latter.
However, the bald farmer acted like Angele was not here; he was just working with his hoe.
“Alright, what’re you thinking…” Angele reached to the farmer’s hand with his enormous right hand.
The man’s forehead was covered by Angele’s hand and he stopped moving. The windmill on top of the man’s head slowly stopped spinning.
Blurry images flashed in Angele’s mind.
“Harvest in three days… Harvest in three days…”
A deep voice echoed in Angele’s brain.
In the images, Angele saw golden sunflowers slowly growing in the farmland. Each of the sunflowers had a diameter of two meters. Their pupils looked like the faces of sleeping human beings.
Some of them were males and some of them were females, but all of them were sleeping.
“The flower…” The sunflower reminded Angele of the strange plant he saw during an exploration when he was still an apprentice.
However, he was certain that the sunflower he’d encountered in the mansion was much smaller than those in the farmer’s memory.
“That’s where those sunflowers came from. The flowers in the mansion must be from here.” Angele heard loud footsteps coming from the blue mist before he could analyze the situation.
Two tall men in black rushed out of the blue mist.
“Juss!” The two men roared in a hoarse voice and rushed Angele. They were shouting in a shaky tone and the word sounded weird.
The two men’s upper bodies looked just like muscular male human beings, however, the bottom half of their bodies were formed by waist-sized hooves. The hooves looked like the hooves of donkeys, but oversized.
They were not walking; they were jumping, and the earth was shaking with mud splashing everywhere under their steps.
Angele took two steps back and looked at the two men with donkey hooves. He noticed that they were just slightly shorter than him. They were wearing black farmer suits and had a crazed look on their faces.
The two men struck forward with their fists when they were about ten meters away from Angele. Two head-sized shock waves flew toward Angele quickly.
Angele was pushed back by the impact as the two shock waves landed on his shoulders. He could feel the intense pain building up in his body.
