Angele walked to the crystal orb and picked it up.
The orb was clear and there was an invisible force slowly moving inside it.
Angele had read about the orb from the sacred book, it was used to record the knowledge as pure energy.
Raising his right hand, Angele tapped on the surface of the orb with his index finger.
White light flashed and the crystal orb turned into a ball of liquid, then disappeared into Angele’s finger.
At the same time, a lot of complicated knowledge was transferred into Angele’s brain.
“They’re yours now…” Angele groaned and put the bones on the ground. “I’ll be leaving now as the gate is getting unstable. This’ll probably be the one and only time that we meet.”
He took several steps back, turned around, and walked to the beach.
A green staircase appeared under Angele’s feet, creating a path to the shore on the other side.
Angele was checking the surroundings constantly when he was retreating as he was not sure if the souls would attack him.
However, nothing happened after he stepped on the staircase and walked for a while. Angele turned his head around as he returned to the beach with the gate.
The island had disappeared into the thick fog and it seemed like the souls had no intention to return through the gate.
Angele’s brow furrowed, he mentioned the gate since he wanted to see if the souls would follow him. It seemed like the souls had other plans.
He checked the unstable mentality wave of the rune he left on the gate and stopped thinking. He started rushing to the gate at full speed.
Minutes later, Angele returned to the black stone gate.
Blue electric pulses appeared inside the gate and the image of the Ness River’s shore was getting blurry.
Angele wasted no time and entered the gate.
His body numbed for several seconds after contacting the electric pulses; the next moment, he already returned to the Ness River.
‘Zero, record the energy movement and the frequency.’ Angele remembered something and gave the order.
‘Task created. Recording…’
The space inside the black gate twisted and it seemed like something with a moving magnifier.
Finally, a loud noise was made by the broken gate.
The stone gate fell to the ground and turned into a pile of broken stones before Angele could do anything.
The fog started disappearing and it felt like it was sucked in by something. He could finally see the riverside clearly again.
Angele picked up some broken stone pieces of the gate, observed, and scanned them using the biochip.
However, the result was a bit disappointing.
‘The gate was built with the world stone, however, there is no energy or force left. If I can build a gate like this with world stone, it’ll be possible for me to teleport to other realms,’ Angele guessed in mind. ‘But it can’t be that easy… The place I went to doesn’t feel like a complete realm… It felt like an abandoned ruin with nothing living inside.’
He stood up and put one of the black stone pieces into his pouch.
Angele glanced around.
Some mutated creatures were moving toward Angele slowly after the fog disappeared.
There were tall bald yetis with enormous wooden bats in their hands and a group of tiny black insects that looked like flies. They’d all noticed Angele.
Angele’s mission was accomplished and there was no point for him to fight.
The bald yetis were charging toward Angele. There were two of them and the wooden bats were shaking over their shoulders. Both of them were only wearing just a piece of linen cloth.
They were looking at Angele like at a piece of fresh meat—Angele could see the greed in their eyes.
Angele raised his hands calmly and created two lava balls that were floating in front of him.
“Strike.” He pointed at the two bald yetis.
Two red lava balls rolled and moved to the target accurately.
The explosion made the earth shake, and the yetis and flies were swallowed by a sea of fire. The intense flames splashed with the golden lava drops, those creatures were evaporated within seconds.
Angele remained calm and the orange light illuminated his body.
‘Alright, I shall return to my territory.’
Angele looked at the direction he came from, turned into a blurry shadow, and disappeared.
Five days later…
In the reading room in Nightmare Realm.
Angele wiped his hands and moved from the operating table to the window.
“How’s your body’s condition?” Angele questioned as he looked out of the window.
On the white operating table, Orphie stood up naked; her skin was pink and she was panting.
“I don’t feel anything strange, but my eyes are turning pink for some reason,” Orphie responded in a light tone.
“Pink? It’s normal. I’m helping you regain the ability to reproduce with my bloodline and that’s just a possible reaction.” Angele nodded.
“How’s Freia doing?”
“She’s doing fine, but she was depressed since you were gone for…” Orphie put on her clothes quickly.
Someone knocked on the door and interrupted their conversation.
“Hey! Green! It’s a letter from my brother!” Freia’s loud voice came from outside.
“Huh?” Angele was a bit surprised. “A letter from Frey?” He smiled and he felt relieved. “Alright, let’s go have a look. Didn’t expect to receive a letter in such a dangerous world.”
He put down the white towel and opened the door.
Freia was standing by the door of the reading room with a brown envelope, which was sealed with red wax, in hand. There was a red insect that looked like a large mosquito on Freia’s shoulder; it had four transparent wings and its body was covered with gold and green circles. The insect’s large yellow compound eyes were rolling, looking in different directions.
Freia handed the letter to Angele as she saw Orphie stepping out of the room.
“Green, this is a letter to you from my brother. Also, come down for lunch after reading the letter.” She turned around and walked down the stairs. It seemed like Frey also wrote a letter to Freia and she wanted to read it as soon as possible.
Angele grabbed the letter, removed the seal, and opened it.
It’s been years. I wanted to come back and visit you myself. I also wanted to take you to where I live right now. However, I gave up after considering the situation.
You and my sister live in a remote area, where there’s fewer issues and political wars. Moreover, someone found out about your shelter somehow. Please be careful.
Also, I’m doing well right now and I finally found a way to send letters. I sent dozens of letters to you and I’m sure one of them will end up in your hand.
Alright, I guess you already have a general idea of my current situation. I’ve seen a lot of things recently and apparently, human beings are much more evil than monsters.
Please don’t worry. I’ve gotten everything sorted out. I’ll write to you from time to time. You can reply to me through the following method.
It was a short letter but Frey explained everything well.
Angele tapped the letter and smiled—he already considered Frey and Freia his own children after all those years. He was worried as Frey never contacted him after leaving the mansion, but he felt relieved after reading the letter.
Based on the contents of the letter, Frey was doing well in the outside world, and it seemed like he had acquired a certain level of power.
“As long as he’s still alive…” Angele sighed. “I should stop worrying too much about him.”
He should focus on his research before the chaos came.
Angele spent most of his time analyzing the content of the sacred book he got from the island.
After about five days of comparing, he confirmed that the content in the sacred book was real. Also, it was impossible for the soul forms to modify the sacred book as they probably did not expect Angele to bring back their bones.
Angele decided to practice the sacred book after making sure everything was correct.
He put down the letter and looked at Orphie who was waiting for his orders. The girl had not left the reading room yet.
“Go have some rest and help me take care of Freia. Don’t let her stay in the garden for too long.”
“Yes, master.” Orphie bowed to Angele, lifted her white dress up slightly, and walked to the stairs.
Orphie disappeared from Angele’s sight after walking down the stairs and Angele returned to his reading room right away.
He locked the door.
Angele walked to the bookshelf and took out a notebook with a cracked red shell.
He opened the notebook—it was filled up with notes regarding the magic circles and runes. Angele wrote down a lot of basic formulas to analyze the details of some runes. Data, characters, detailed graphs, and strings, there was a lot of important information on that notebook.
Actually, the information on that book looked like a blueprint of a certain device.
Angele remained calm while turning the pages.
Everything he found recently was also recorded in the notebook; he used the two sacred books he had, and compared the difference between the runes.
He was trying to verify the sacred book that was given to him by Eye Devil.
However, Angele finally confirmed that the sacred book from Eye Devil was at a lower level with a lot of mistakes that were set up as traps intentionally.
The sacred book he acquired from the three souls had a weird name:
Erin’s Funeral Oration.
Bible is now changed to sacred book.
