Chapter 433: Signs (2)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
Eye-Gouging Dragon was a legendary dragon; according to the data, a young eye-gouging dragon could easily fight a rank 4 wizard and a dragon lord could win a battle against a rank 5, 6, or 7 wizard. However, the dragon lord was severely injured by Eye Devil in just one hit, which meant that Eye Devil at least had the same power as a rank 7 wizard.
Angele noticed that the ranking system created by the modern wizards was not good enough for him.
The lords in the northern continent, including Eye Devil, were at the top of the food chain in the Nightmare Realm. They were probably stronger rank 7 wizards.
The dragon lord probably wanted to summon a creature from other realms as food. Eye-gouging dragon enjoyed consuming eyeballs. However, he did not expect that he communicated with one of the strongest beings in Nightmare Realm…
“What do you think? You can join us. It seems like you haven’t fully recovered yet, I can ask my servants to protect you.” Eye Devil smiled.
“Will the other lords come as well?” Angele questioned. He did not feel safe if he entered another realm alone with just Eye Devil.
“Yeah, Bone and Spider will go with us. They have their own servants. Vapor is on his own and there’ll be an old friend of mine,” Eye Devil responded.
“Sure, I’ve never entered the Soul River Realm before and I want to see if there is a good bloodline I can collect.” Angele nodded.
“No problem. Let’s just wait. My shadow is bringing us the items you asked for.”
They stopped talking and waited patiently in the snow.
Minutes later, a black shadow soared through the sky and landed in front of the two, turning into a woman in a black robe. The shadow looked identical to Eye Devil, she was wearing a black robe with a purple mask on face. The only difference was that the shadow was holding a red leather bag in hand.
“Those are the items.” She dropped the bag on the ground.
“Take a look,” Eye said in a light tone.
Angele nodded and walked to the bag. He pointed at the bag and unsealed it using energy particles, revealing the items inside.
There were four blood essence stones, a dead infant body with pale skin, and several pieces of broken black crystals.
“Oh, right, this infant body is a Ghost Infant that was trained using special techniques. Be careful with it so you won’t be damaged when using it. Also, a small amount of the dragon lord’s blood is inside this infant body, but it’s too weak. You probably can’t extract the blood from it as it requires extremely accurate operations,” Eye Devil explained.
“Got it.” Angele nodded and threw the eyeball to Eye Devil.
Eye Devil caught the eyeball and swallowed it right away.
“I’ll keep it in my stomach for now and use it later. Here are the coordinates and the teleportation tool.” Eye Devil handed a small black cage over to Angele. The cage had the size of a nail and it was made with some glowing green metal.
Angele grabbed the tool and packed up the items on the ground. “One more thing, what’s this snow about? Did you do something?”
“Of course not… It’s from the Dire Lords… It’s a message related to the world gate that was sent by the lords of the abyss. They probably found a stable dimension gate as well and finished setting up the coordinates. They wanted to take resources from other realms as well.”
“Alright then, didn’t know that. I look forward to working with you.”
“Same here.” Eye Devil chuckled as the shadow slowly merged into her body. She turned around, turned into a black shadow, and flew into the sky.
Angele checked the weight of the items; he could easily carry it, so he was satisfied. He turned around and disappeared into a ball of flames.
Angele stored the items from the eye-gouging dragon and started absorbing the blood essence stone.
With the help of the essence stones, the spreading frost damage slowed down, and his true form started improving again. His body was getting stronger and stronger every day.
About one month after the exchange, Angele was almost seven meters tall in his true form and was taller than the mansion itself. He noticed that his body was heavy and his movements were full of power. The improvement of the true form was slowed down again after he finished absorbing the four blood essence stones.
The strengthened true form helped him handle the frost damage when he was in the main world and his attributes stopped decreasing.
He studied the black crystal pieces and the Ghost Infant. He wanted to extract the bloodline of the dragon lord from the Ghost Infant, but he was interrupted by an unknown force field. He successfully acquired the detailed information of the black crystal. It was a crystal that was filled up with unknown energy particles. Angele had never seen such energy particles in the main world.
He absorbed some of the energy particles, but they were quickly eliminated by his immune system. Angele did some tests and noticed that those crystal pieces were perfect for the defensive matrixes. One piece of the crystal could support the matrix for over 50 years.
Angele returned to the main world after everything was finished. The date the plan would be activated was getting closer.
In a spacious white hall on a high level of a tall tower.
The sunlight of the early morning landed in the hall through the windows and illuminated the white marble floor. The whole hall was brightened up by the light.
Angele was wearing a black-and-red suit, standing in front of the window with a glass of blue wine in hand. He was looking at the street from the tower.
“I like the mornings here. It’s refreshing and enjoyable. Clean air, low radiation energy, and loyal citizens.” A middle-aged woman with a cold expression on the face was sitting behind Angele; there was also a glass of blue wine in her hand.
“It sounds like you love this place, Masha.” Angele looked at the people who were purchasing vegetables and fruits on the street.
“Yeah… This is my hometown. I left this place years ago and advanced to rank 4, but I came back right after that.” After the incident at the tomb, Masha and Angele communicated a lot due to the Half Moon Stone mine. They would have a glass of wine together from time to time.
“Green, do you know that there was a madman that came to the city not so long ago?” Masha suddenly switched the topic.
“A madman?” Angele turned around and waited for Masha to finish the story. She would not mention something like this for no reason.
“The man was spreading a rumor. He said that the Mermaid’s Song would be destroyed soon, but his words were not logical at all.” Masha smiled.
Before Angele could ask for the details, he heard someone shouting sadly from outside the window.
“The end is coming! Run! Run now! This city will be destroyed! The darkness is roaring! Everyone! You, me, and all those master wizards, everyone will die! No one can escape!” a man shouted like crazy and kept repeating his words as he walked around the street.
He was talking to everyone he met, tears and snot were all over his face. It sounded like he was laughing while crying and he was wearing a stinky suit that was making everyone trying to stay away from him.
“You again?! Get away from me!” A muscular man that looked like a mercenary with a large hammer on his back started cursing as he kicked the man away.
“Don’t touch me! Madman!”
“Move! Don’t stay here. This madman is sick, stay away from him!”
The women that were doing grocery shopping quickly moved away from the man as the man was beaten up by some random mercenaries. However, the madman was quickly taken away by the city guards.
Angele overlooked the scene from the tower.
“Why don’t the city guards imprison him? Why is he still on the street?”
Masha sipped from the glass and walked to Angele. “This madman is weird. He was imprisoned numerous times, but he could still escape from the prison and no one knew how he did it. He’ll start shouting at the market every morning and all he says are those strange words. Also, someone reported that he heard the man chanting some strange incantation.”
Angele’s brow furrowed. “What if he’s actually trying to warn us?”
“He’s just a madman. What’re you thinking? We asked the prophets and they assured us the city was safe. Why should we trust a madman?” Masha shook her head.
Angele held the glass in hand and did not respond to her words.
“The only thing I want to know is how this guy escapes from the prison.” Masha sipped from the glass again.
“What’s his name?”
“I don’t know. Why? Are you interested?” Masha chuckled. “Actually, these madmen are everywhere. The Troll City and the Siren City. The rumor is getting out of control. Also, the strange thing is that the organization hasn’t released any information regarding the situation. Now that you say it, something might actually happen.”
“Everywhere?” Angele recalled the day he saw the guardian. He had this thought that their plan would be interrupted by some unexpected incidents.
The rumors, madmen, the guardian, and the silent organization. There had to be something that could explain the situation.
He guessed that the Count might encounter an incident he could not deal with.
The coffins and the shadow were all sent back to the Sky City for repair. Turin was hiding in the Mermaid’s Song and could help Angele when the latter needed it.
“I just hope everything’s alright…” Angele’s attitude toward the Dark Wizard Tower was unclear. The only thing he wanted to do was making sure that Vivian was safe when the chaos came. If he had more time, he would try and protect his friends, but that was all he could do.
