Angele played with the eyeball for a while and did some simple experiments on it; however, he did not detect anything strange. It felt like an eyeball from a random creature.
The only difference was that the eyeball could not be destroyed as it would recover any damage that Angele did to it.
Also, Angele tested the parts he removed from the eyeball, but he did not find anything noticeable.
There was no bloodline essence in the eyeball, which meant that Angele could not extract the bloodline from it, so he returned it to his pouch.
‘Maybe Eye Devil will be interested in this thing,’ he assumed. Collecting eyeballs was one of Eye Devil’s hobbies and she would pay a good price for a rare eyeball.
Angele glanced around and pressed his chest with the right hand, then disappeared into the air with a flash of red light.
In the Nightmare Realm.
The mansion by the Ness River.
A red shadow appeared in the reading room of the mansion.
Angele lowered his hands and glanced around.
“Huh? Nothing happened to the mansion in this realm? The mansion in the main world was destroyed but the damage was not reflected here. Maybe the connection between the Nightmare Realm and the main world is more complicated than I thought…” Angele muttered.
He walked to the window and pushed it open.
Chilling wind brushed over his face.
Angele’s pupils retracted slightly due to the cold.
It was snowing outside, the snowflakes were dropping like light feathers and the whole world turned white. He could barely open his eyes due to the reflected light.
The forest, the land, the river, and the hills were all covered with white snow.
Strangely, words were written in the center of those large snowflakes.
Angele quickly grabbed one of the snowflakes and observed it carefully.
The words were written in the ancient language: “The Gate of the World is about to open…”
“What does it mean?” Angele grabbed another snowflake and the words were same. He grabbed dozens of the snowflakes, but the sentence never changed.
“The snowflakes penetrated my defensive barrier.” Angele narrowed his eyes and looked at the translucent barrier.
The barrier was still there, but could not stop the snowflakes from entering the area and the ground already turned white.
*CHI CHI CHI*
Some static noise echoed in the reading room.
Angele turned his head around and looked at a leather scroll on the desk.
He walked to the desk and tapped on the scroll.
A ray of red light turned into a light screen in the air.
The static noise turned into a human voice.
“This is the Molten Palace, again, this is the Molten Palace. The gate to the Soul River Realm will open in three months. We eye devils have already confirmed the coordinates, please send your address to us if you need it.”
The voice finished the sentence and started repeating the same thing.
Angele tapped on the leather scroll again with a blank expression on the face and the voice disappeared.
“The Soul River Realm… They’re about to start the plan.”
He walked to the bookshelf and pulled out a black box from the bottom.
He opened the box and took out a gray eyeball statue. Angele returned to the desk, sat down, and rubbed the surface of the statue for five times.
The gray statue vibrated slightly.
“What’s the matter? Phoenix?” Eye Devil’s voice came from the stone statue. “I’m busy right now.”
“Have you recovered your power? Are you preparing to enter the Soul River Realm?” Angele wondered.
“Don’t worry about it. Why? Do you want to enter the Soul River Realm as well?” Eye Devil questioned back. “We found the coordinates, if you want it, we can do a fair trade.”
“Of course. It’s a great opportunity as I need the bloodlines of other creatures so I can recover faster. However, I’m still too weak for that realm. Actually, I found something you might be interested in recently.” Angele changed the topic. He wanted the bloodlines of the giants so that the power of his true form would increase greatly. The biochip could help him extract the bloodlines much faster than the sealed forms since they could not purify the bloodline essence.
He wanted to increase his power as fast as possible.
“What’s the item? I thought you only collected extremely rare items.” Eye Devil was interested.
“An eyeball that is related to… I mean from the Destruction Eye.”
“Destruction Eye?” Eye Devil remained silent for several seconds, it seemed like she was thinking, and she finally spoke again after several minutes. “Destruction Eye is a strong creature in the Oblivion Realm and it can send its body parts to any realms it wants. I want to know how strong the body part you found is. Let’s set up a meeting and discuss the price. I need to verify the item by myself so I’ll know how valuable it is.”
“Sure, let’s find an area around the mansion. Do you have time now?” Angele responded. “You know my location, right?”
“Sure, I’ll be there soon.”
The stone statue stopped vibrating as the voice disappeared.
Angele was gifted the item after he helped Eye Devil after the auction and he could use it to contact the sealed forms like Eye Devil.
Vapor, Eye Devil, and Bone were all sealed forms. Angele had no idea what they were, but they all had high power levels.
With the buff from the true form, Angele had the same power level as a rank 5 wizard; however, he was still not sure how strong those sealed forms were. He assumed that they all had refined true forms.
It was mentioned in the Erin’s Funeral Oration that the refined true form would make one’s body grow in size as his power level increased. A refined true form and a normal true form were at completely different levels.
However, the refining of the true form required countless bloodline essences and that took time. One had to survive the challenge to his soul and the mind with a strengthened body. If one’s soul was not strong enough to control his body, the refined true form will turn him into a soulless beast.
Angele returned the stone statue to the box after a while and walked out of the room.
He could see Orphie and Freia making a snowman over the arena, it seemed like they were enjoying the snow. Angele could hear them shouting and laughing.
Angele eliminated all the mutated creatures around the mansion the last time. He decided to allow Freia and Orphie to explore the area with certain restrictions.
Angele did not talk to the two girls, he turned around and disappeared into the flames.
The next moment, he already arrived at the barrier.
The flames reformed Angele’s body. He landed on the ground, and walked through the barrier.
White snow filled up his sight and covered the branches of the trees. The chilling wind was blowing and the frozen river was decorated with the large snowflakes.
Some black smoke came from the sky and landed in front of Angele like a black lightning, turning into a woman wearing a black robe. There was a purple silk mask on her face, but Angele could still see her clear eyes.
“Where’s the item?” the woman asked right away.
“What about the item I want?” Angele questioned back. “You know what I need.”
Eye Devil’s brow furrowed. “I need the essence stones from the blood pool as well, I can only give you four of them.”
Angele nodded and stopped talking, he took out the eyeball.
“Huh? That’s a huge eyeball! Where did you find it?” Eye Devil looked excited after she saw the eyeball.
“We’ve cooperated many times. I want the coordinates, essence stones, and what else can you offer?” Angele noticed that Eye Devil was interested in the eyeball and decided to ask for more.
“Sure, and yeah, we’ve worked together on many things, so I’ll be honest. This eyeball is important to me.” Eye Devil thought for a while and continued, “I’m going to send my army into the Soul River Realm and this eyeball will aid me. Let me know what you want.”
Angele hesitated for a second. “Do you know anything about the eye-gouging dragon?”
“Eye-gouging dragon? A member of the rare race?” Eye Devil was searching through her memory. “I’ve seen one in the wizard world many years ago. The dragon was evil, selfish, and he wouldn’t trust anyone. However, he was a strong dragon; the name was Mura Libra, the king of the eye-gouging dragons. Why’re you asking?”
“You own the biggest trading company in the southern area, do you have anything related to the dragon?” Angele wondered. “I want to study this creature.”
“Well, I did notice that you smell like that old dragon for some reason.” Her brow furrowed. “I did trade with that dragon and I still have those items; however, none of them is valuable. He was trying to trick me with low-quality sacrificial items and our meeting did not end peacefully. Are you sure you want those items?”
“Sure, maybe they’ll be useful to me. It’s hard to find dragon’s belongings these days.” Angele chuckled. “Can you still contact that dragon?”
“I can’t. The dragon was severely injured after taking a hit from my shadow. If I entered the wizard world with my true form, the coordinates of the universe will be messed up. I only wanted the flesh of 500 different creatures, but he couldn’t even prepare that. Good thing was I got the chance to confirm the coordinates of the wizard world.” Eye Devil sounded disappointed.
“Well, that dragon probably underestimated your power…” Angele was terrified in his mind. The eye-gouging dragon was severely injured by a shadow of Eye Devil. He wondered how strong those sealed forms’ true forms were.
