Angele stood on the beach for about half an hour and checked all the belongings he had. He made sure that all his potions were still effective and started moving to the left slowly.
The smooth and clean blue beach was expanding; the black stone gate looked like a small black dot far behind him.
Angele was advancing at a fast pace as the waves hit the beach constantly. He checked the surroundings nonstop with blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
About two hours later, there was still nothing in front and the blue sea was still endless; everything looked normal.
Angele stopped, taking out a black nutrition potion and pouring it into his mouth slowly. The nutrition potion could prevent him from getting hungry or thirsty for the next several days.
‘The waves are getting noisier,’ Angele thought. He noticed that something was changing.
After finishing the potion, Angele rested for a while and started advancing again.
Minutes later, a white island appeared on the surface of the sea. The island was floating on the sea alone and looked like a large leaf.
Angele stopped moving and overlooked the island.
On the beach of the white island, there were several blurry shadows that looked like short men. The rest of the island was covered in a thick blue fog.
Angele checked the distance between him and the island as his brow furrowed.
The Metal Mastery still needed some time to be fixed. Although he had other methods to travel across the sea, he would not be able to fight back if he encountered anything on the way to the island.
Angele hesitated, but he still started approaching the island.
‘A race with the ability to seal their voices in the waves. It must be a strong ancient bloodline with high mentality. Maybe I can find the bloodline or item I want from them.’ A thought climbed up Angele’s mind.
He stepped into the sea with his black leather boots.
“Agglomerate.” He pointed at the water under his feet.
A thick layer of green light dots appeared and they quickly formed a green staircase.
It was a rectangular staircase that was surrounded by a green glow; its size was perfect for Angele to walk on.
Seconds later, the staircase started expanding in front of Angele and turned into a long staircase that led directly to the lonely island.
Angele walked on the staircase and moved to the island.
It was a basic spell that could form wind and water energy particles into a staircase. Angele spent years studying and learning about the spell models, it was the perfect time to utilize his knowledge. He knew a lot of weak spells that might come in handy sometimes.
Although those spells might not work during a battle, they could assist him in complicated situations like this.
The waves were still moving on the surface of the sea.
Angele’s expression slowly turned serious as he got closer to the island.
There were broken brown wooden planks in the water around the island, they looked like pieces of wrecked boats. He could finally see the situation on the island.
Three children wearing white clothes were standing on the beach, waving and shouting at Angele.
“Please, help us!”
Angele watched the children shouting and waving at him. However, the movements of those children were slightly mechanical, they looked like robots repeating the same behaviors.
‘Rising tide, ship accident, or… they’re probably already dead…’
Angele guessed and narrowed his eyes.
The faces of those children were pale, it almost looked like they were soaked in water, and blood was spurting out of their eyes, leaving two trails of blood on their faces.
Angele looked at the island speechlessly.
“You can see us, right? You can see us!” A boy on the island shouted at Angele loudly. He had a pair of large eyes but he was staring at Angele soullessly. “Please! Help us! Help us! Help… Help… Help… us…!” The voice changed, it became long and deep. It was no longer a voice of a child, the voice sounded like it was from an old man with his mouth covered by a piece of paper. The scene was mysterious and terrifying.
The voices of those children became deeper and deeper as the time passed.
Angele was not sure if he should keep advancing and answer those kids.
The voices of the children turned louder as Angele was about to retreat. It felt like those children were just several meters away from him.
Angele’s head was dizzy and he could barely think of any solution.
“Trying to interrupt my thoughts again?” Raising his right hand, he pushed forward.
Red light flashed, a head-sized lava ball spun and flew toward the three children that were standing on the island.
The red cracks on the surface of the lava ball were filled up with golden lava. The temperature of the lava ball was extremely high and water started evaporating as the ball traveled by.
The lava ball started shrinking and it landed accurately in front of the three children.
Red light stroke into the air as the lava ball exploded; the beach of the island was covered with the golden lava drops.
The whole beach was hot and there was white steam rising in the air.
The voices of the children disappeared after the explosion.
Angele looked at the beach and the three children were nowhere to be found, it felt like that they were never there as they left no trace on the beach.
Some of the blue fog disappeared after the intense explosion.
Narrowing his eyes, Angele started walking again.
‘I should pay the island a visit since I’m already here.’
The island was getting closer and closer. Angele could feel the heat left by the explosion, and the melted stones already started solidifying on the ground.
Angele stepped on the beach and walked to the location where the three children used to be.
Only a two-meter-long hole was left there, created by the explosion of the lava ball.
Angele crouched and checked the hole, but he did not find anything there.
Standing up, he looked around.
It was a round island and he could see a large bridge deep in the blue fog that led straight to the sky from the ground.
The sky bridge was blurry, dark, quiet, and mysterious.
“Help us…” The voice appeared again and was echoing in Angele’s ears. It felt like someone was whispering in his ears.
Angele’s expression changed and he checked the surroundings.
“Pitiful…!” He snorted and took out a light blue potion from his pouch, inside it was some glowing blue liquid.
He threw the potion into the air.
The test tube cracked and it sounded like glass being broken.
A strong vortex appeared above the island.
The noise made by the vortex was getting louder and louder. It started gathering the blue fog and turning it into a blue vortex.
The bottom of the vortex was connected to the center of Angele’s palm.
The thick blue fog gathered together and turned into some blue liquid after spinning for a while, slowly dropping into an empty bottle in Angele’s hand.
The rest of the island was cleared as the fog disappeared.
The small island had a diameter of around ten meters and was surrounded by the sea.
Angele saw a long yellow stone tower, sitting on the other side of the island quietly.
The stone bridge was connected directly to the sky. The upper part of the bridge was old and broken, but it led to the endless sky. Angele had no idea what was above the bridge.
The voice had disappeared from Angele’s ears. He returned the bottle to the pouch and glanced around.
There were three children in white standing in front of the stone bridge facing backward; they were looking at the sky without saying a word.
The bodies of the children started melting slowly without making any noise, just like a candle, turning into pools of white liquid and sinking into the ground.
Angele walked to the stone bridge quickly and stood where the three children disappeared.
There was a sentence written on the surface of the bridge in the ancient language.
‘Nightmare Realm Year 544. We discovered the gate to another dimension. This is an interesting bridge. We three can’t do any damage to it. It’s a great exploration and I’m sure there is something exciting waiting for us.’
The words were small but clean.
Angele found a small piece of white cloth that was hidden under a small black stone.
He crouched and grabbed the stone.
“Give it back!” Someone screamed at him from behind—it was the voice from one of the children.
Angele turned around, but nobody was there.
He sneered and patted his pouch. A translucent energy barrier quickly surrounded his body.
The defensive barrier from the crystal scorpion could block the attack from the soul forms and that was the reason why Vivian gifted him this magic device. The barrier was weak to spells, but it was great against soul attacks.
Angele checked the black stone in his hand.
‘The stone is not from this island.’ Angele noticed that all the stones on the island were white and it seemed like the stone was from another area.
The white cloth quickly turned into ashes as he picked up the stone and disappeared into the wind.
