Angele was standing on the left of the dead woman with a smile on his face.
“This is a random shovel I found at a farm nearby and killing her was not my intention. I was just playing with the shovel and she was somehow pinned to the tree by it.” Actually, Angele drugged the woman with the sleeping powder that drugged Lyn before.
“What have you done… Damn!” Carmen was so angry that he could barely talk. He roared and there was white smoke coming out of his horse’s nose. The horse was about to charge forward.
“You killed my only apprentice! I’ll kill you!” the specter knight roared.
The knight disappeared with his horse.
The specter knight was blown away with his horse after the noise. They rotated in the air and hit the ground.
*BAM BAM BAM*
The noise of trees falling was loud. They took down around five to six enormous trees in the air.
A ball of red flame appeared above the knight and his horse, turning into Angele’s body.
The red hair flew to the knight like countless red needles.
The specter knight’s sight blurred and turned into darkness.
Frost waves with a diameter of around 30 meters slowly expanded in the forest. Everything that contacted the wave was covered with blue frost.
The whole area turned in to an ice world.
A gray squirrel was surprised by the changes and fell from the tree. Its tail touched the blue frost slightly.
The squirrel was frozen and turned into an ice statue. The ice statue then cracked and turned into numerous bloody ice cubes, falling to the grasses.
Angele’s body was coated with the white frost. He stepped out of the area and slowly sat down by a tree.
He grabbed his right shoulder with the left hand and pulled it forward hard.
The joint made some light noise and he could finally move again.
Angele’s face was pale. ‘If the knight didn’t fight the Shadow Lich and was almost killed, my ambush wouldn’t be so successful… The guy was strong even without his talent ability…
‘He didn’t expect that I could move so fast and I was almost killed by his last resort,’ Angele thought. The specter knight’s last resort had low damage, but the frost aura was horrifying. It seemed like the frost could damage his body, mentality, and soul.
His body was not severely damaged, but his shoulder dislocated when he attacked the knight. Also, the last resort the knight had was quite strong even though Angele’s attributes were much higher than before.
Angele’s body was freezing and he could feel the frost climbing up his feet. It had to be a strong secret technique.
‘Zero, check my condition,’ Angele could not stop coughing.
‘Analyzing your condition…
‘Unknown force field detected. Ice damage. Currently, it’s impossible for you to handle the impact.
‘Your attributes: Strength 20.2 (was 49). Agility 9.2 (was 11.5). Stamina 21.0 (71). Mentality 214.7. Mana 210.1. Gene limit not reached. Status: Unknown.’ The frost aura lowered Angele’s attributes by a lot.
Also, Angele’s Stamina was over 32 when he was not in the true form but it was lowered to 21 at the moment.
A bitter smile appeared on Angele’s face. ‘An unknown frost aura? I should’ve been more careful… I had several protective energy shields around my body but they didn’t work. Top-level rank 3 wizards are no joke.’
Angele activated all his barriers but he was still injured. Without the shields, he would probably be killed by the frost aura.
He stopped thinking and took out a small white eyeball. ‘Anyway, the trip to the tomb was worth it. I hope this thing is as strong as they said…’
Angele understood that the higher his rank was, the slower his injury would recover. If he could find out the source of the frost aura, he could probably find a way to deal with it. However, it would take him years to recover if he failed to find the source.
It sounded like something exploded in the distance. It seemed like the tomb was collapsing and the earth was shaking.
Angele stood up and looked at the entrance of the tomb. White dust was blown into the air, and the tomb completely collapsed. He realized that Mura and Aria were still in the tomb. He wondered if they made it out.
However, Mura’s body was damaged by the things they gave him. Angele looked at the tomb and stood in the forest for a while.
‘He’s too weak to control his own destiny.’
Angele turned around and disappeared into the flames.
Five days later. At night.
By the edge of the central continent. The Abyss Canyon.
On the yellow plain, a ray of black light rose from the center of the Abyss Canyon. The ray shot into the sky and landed on a cliff by the canyon.
The light ray had a diameter of two meters and slowly disappeared after about one minute, revealing a tall man that was standing on the cliff.
“Finally… I finally found him…” It was a woman with a high-pitched voice, she was roaring.
The moonlight shined upon the woman’s body and her appearance was a bit terrifying.
The woman was wearing a humongous black armor, but her head looked like a young girl with a pair of soulless eyes.
It looked like a robot with a young girl’s head on top. The woman just looked weird in that suit.
The long gray hair trailed over the woman’s shoulders and there was no light in her soulless eyes. “Terry… I’ll avenge you…”
She created a large black trident that was surrounded by sparking black pulses in the air.
The heavy trident looked like a weapon in her hand. She waved the trident several times and dropped it to the ground. The trident was so heavy that it left a hole beside her feet.
The woman turned into a shadow and disappeared into the darkness quietly.
Blood filled up the small hole made by the trident.
In the mansion beside the Ness River.
Angele sat by the fireplace with a red blanket on his feet. His body was still cold and he tried to get some warmth from the fireplace. The man’s skin was pale and the light from the fireplace illuminated his eyes.
Two maids were waiting quietly in the living room—they were ready to add more firewood to the fireplace.
The temperature in the living room was high and the two maids’ bodies were coated with some unstable white light. The light was from some low-level enchanted items, but they were still sweating.
Also, the firewood Angele purchased was made with a tree called Bronze Fire. The tree was rare and the firewood was sold for over 1000 regular magic stones per piece in the market. However, it could only last around one hour in Angele’s fireplace. Magic stones were not a problem to Angele, Vivian would give him as many as he wanted. Also, Angele earned a lot of resources from the Dark Wizard Tower, and there was no point for him to save too many magic stones.
That was the reason why Angele decided to purchase the most expensive firewood.
The room was filled up with the wood fragrance of the firewood. There were also some strange energy waves in the room that were stopping Angele from freezing.
He compared the materials in the database—those items were perfect for his injury.
“Sadly… None of the material is super effective…” Angele exhaled deeply, his freezing breath was about one meter long, and it slowly merged into the heat waves.
‘The frost won’t melt in normal flames. The firewood made with the Bronze Heart can barely do it.’ Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes.
Angele’s Stamina was still decreasing and the ice damage was getting worse. He tried to fight the frost using the unknown energy from the eyeball. Although the energy from the eyeball was stronger than the frost energy, the eyeball could not heal his injury.
He tried to find materials that could help him fight against the frost damage, but the only thing that worked was the firewood made with the Bronze Heart. The Bronze Heart was a branch of the Dark Mother tree, and the ingredient that could heal him in the firewood was discovered by Angele, so he named it as Greenfin. It was part of his name.
The ingredient was rare in the trees; although they could deal with the frost, the progression was way too slow. It would take him hundreds of years to heal at this rate.
Angele tried to enter the Nightmare Realm and solve the problem using his true form. However, his high attributes with the true form could only stop him from feeling cold, the true form could not completely heal him.
Angele realized that the last resort the knight activated was something with a background after he tried to heal the frost damage using his true form.
Dark Mother was a tree that would only grow in the underground world. The tree was considered as a holy tree by the underground races. There was a total of 15 dark mother trees in the underground world. The tree had a life circle of 1000 years. From a seed to an enormous tree, their life cycle never ended, and their number would not increase or decrease.
The branches of the dark mother trees were considered legendary materials for the races that lived on the land. The underground races would use the branch right away if they someone get their hands on it and the modern wizards had never actually seen the branch.
The branch was extremely rare even for the underground races.
A strong item usually had something that could counter it in this world or the food chain would be damaged. It was a universal rule that every realm had.
The frost damage might be related to the dark mother trees or the underground races.
Angele sat by the fireplace and checked the data he collected.
“Maybe I should find the solution through Dark Wizard Tower. Those elites I selected are probably ready to work. If they can do whatever I say, my life will be much easier…” Angele sighed.
He was certain that the specter knight had explored the underground world, otherwise, the knight would not be able to know such a strong secret technique.
