Angele noticed that there fewer and fewer blue footprints on the ground as he advanced. It seemed like the stranger was checking the tomb and observing the corners quietly.
He slowed down and activated the stealth technique. He spent years improving the technique and it was more effective than before; it was the perfect technique to use at the moment.
Chilling wind was coming out of the area in the front and the smell of the mold permeated the air.
Angele slowed down his breathing and started advancing slowly. Seconds later, he arrived at the stone chamber they’d investigated earlier.
In the narrow stone chamber, a large magic circle appeared on the left wall, and there was an egg-sized amethyst in the center of the circle.
A dark shadow was standing by the magic circle quietly and it almost looked like he merged into the darkness.
If Angele did not find something familiar about the man, he would not be able to detect him.
The man became one with the tomb and the mentality wave he released was barely noticeable. Henn stayed in Angeles’ body for so long that Angele had the ability to detect soul forms under most circumstances.
Angele waited outside the stone chamber quietly and hid in the long back robe. He was also releasing minimum mentality wave.
Angele could control himself much better than before after he acquired the ability to transform into the true form.
With the help of the stealth technique, he also merged into the darkness.
It seemed like the black shadow was waiting for something, so Angele decided to be patient.
They were both trying to hide from each other.
Time passed. Two hours later.
Footsteps appeared by the entrance of the tomb again—although it was some light noise, Angele could still detect the mentality wave.
Angele and the black shadow both noticed the third person, they looked at the entrance at the same time.
In the dark tunnel of the tomb, a tall and slim shadow appeared from around the corner. The man’s eyes were surrounded by a white glow, he was checking the surrounding.
The man walked to the magic circle where Angele and the other black shadow were hiding but it seemed like he did not notice any of them.
The man raised his hand and drew a white magic circle that looked like a starfish.
The gentle light from the white glowing lines brightened up chamber.
The man pushed circle forward and applied it to the other circle.
After the noise, the circle on the wall rotated and the amethyst released a flow of purple light after the rotation.
The purple light quietly went into the lines of the circle like mercury.
The magic circle made some noise and disappeared into the air after the lines were all brightened up by the purple light.
A black hole appeared at the original location of the circle.
The man hesitated for a second and entered the hole.
Angele waited for the man disappear into the hole. Seconds later, the black shadow transformed into some black smoke and entered the hole as well.
Angele did not expect that something like this would happen when he decided to explore the tomb at night. Also, he marked the hole when he was with the investigation team but he did not know that it was an entrance of a secret path.
He hesitated, but still approached the hole and peeked inside
It was dark inside the hole and black nails were lined up on the walls. Black smoke was coming out of those nails, it seemed like the nails were used to detect intruders.
‘Well, do you really think those nails are good enough?’ Angele shook his head. With a flick of his finger, a thin layer of black light appeared around his body. He started walking and passed through the tunnel with no problem.
It seemed like the hole was an entrance to a cave. A thick white spider web blocked the area in the front—however, it was torn apart in the middle.
The man that entered the cave first probably broke the web.
Angele moved through the web and entered a spacious bronze hall.
It was a large hall with a tall altar on the opposite side of the entrance. Two yellow light torches were burning on both sides of the altar.
The area not illuminated by the torches was still easily visible for some reason.
Angele noticed something was wrong as he entered the hall. He activated the illusion ability, his body twisted, and it looked like he became part of the wall.
He took out a yellow potion from the pouch, removed the stopper, and covered the mouth of the tube with his finger, only leaving a small gap by the edge.
The yellow potion slowly evaporated and the yellow gas leaked out of the tube. The gas surrounded Angele’s body and helped him merge into the wall.
After everything was done, Angele looked at the two people that entered the hall before him.
The man with a pair of glowing white eyes stood beside the altar and it looked like he was searching for something.
On the altar, there was a long rectangular golden coffin with a dried black flower lying on it quietly. The man checked the area around the coffin, but did not find anything valuable. His sight fell upon the coffin and he tried to remove the lid of the coffin.
The black shadow was still hiding in the darkness without moving an inch; he looked like a stone statue, and his body had become the shadow itself.
Angele was wafting by the wall patiently.
Several minutes later, it seemed like the man failed to find the trick to opening the lid.
However, the coffin moved slightly on its own and made some loud noise.
The man was surprised, he took several steps back and stared at the coffin cautiously.
The coffin slowly opened; the noise made by the lid was hurting Angele’s teeth.
The lid slid down to the ground and white dust was blown into the air.
A dried black arm reached out from the coffin and tapped the edge of the coffin hard.
“Ha…” A mummy slowly sat up in the coffin and stared at the man. “Yrojus?”
The mummy opened his mouth and said a word in an unknown language with his hoarse voice. It sounded like he was warning the man.
The man hesitated for a second, but he still replied, “Kolintas!”
The mummy stared at the man as two balls of green light appeared in his rotten eyes. “Korus!” He suddenly started shouting and quickly jumped out of the coffin with a terrifying black axe in hand. A glowing dark-red crystal adorned the blade of the axe.
The mummy wasted no time and charged toward the man with a two-meter-long and one-meter-wide axe. The green light from the mummy’s eyes was getting intense.
It seemed like the man’s response was incorrect.
However, the man was prepared, he tossed a black potion onto the ground.
A two-meter-tall black golem appeared in the dark smoke.
The golem was made of black bricks. It had a muscular body and a fist that had the size of a human’s head. The golem roared and hit the mummy with its right fist.
The man took several steps back and chanted an incantation. Rays of white light were released from his hand, turning into vines, snakes, and black smoke—they all slowed the mummy down.
The golem’s fist landed on the mummy. The mummy was not prepared, and his forehead was damaged.
The mummy shook his head and roared. His axe landed on the stone golem’s fist.
The stone golem’s left arm was cut off; however, the broken bricks gathered at its wound and created a new arm.
The mummy started fighting against the golem, but he was slowed by the man’s spells; it seemed like the mummy was enraged.
Also, the stone golem barely did any damage to the mummy, but its recovery speed was slowed down every time it took a hit.
It seemed like the man specialized in summoning spells. He took out two more potions and dropped them to the ground.
A yellow earth golem and an ice elemental appeared in the hall.
The earth golem looked identical to the stone golem, they both looked like two-meter-tall muscular men; however, the ice elemental looked like a girl with a body made of ice.
The ice elemental was floating in the air just above the ground. Every time the ice elemental stepped forward, frost would be left on the ground.
The man looked tired after summoning all the golems and the elemental. He almost fell to the ground.
Controlling two golems and one elemental at the same time could only be accomplished by wizards that were at least rank 3; also, it seemed like the man’s summoning spells were modified.
The golems and the elemental kept attacking the mummy; however, it seemed like only the ice elemental’s strike worked, and the mummy’s movement was slowed down again.
The man stood there and consumed a potion, but he noticed that the mummy was not damaged at all. He hesitated and finally made up his mind. He took out a tiny red accessory that looked like it was crafted for a girl. The accessory was a crystal chained by a red metal string.
The man raised the accessory into the air and started chanting the incantation in a deep voice. Bright red light was released from the accessory several seconds later.
Angele hid by the wall and watched the fight. The stone golem was the strongest creature the man summoned. The strike made by the golem was enchanted with a special gravity field and it could deal around 300 degrees of damage; however, it did not work on the mummy. The earth golem and the ice elemental could only provide minimal support.
It seemed like the red accessory was one of the man’s final resorts. The energy wave released by the accessory could easily deal more than 100 degrees of damage. If it was fully activated, the damage could reach 500 to 600 degrees—it was a large number even for a rank 3 wizard.
Intense red light exploded in the hall about one minute later, turning the man into a ball of red light.
