Angele was surrounded by red light after activating the elemental teleportation. He traveled more than 30 meters within a second, landing on the right side of the bush.
In the dark forest, Angele’s eyes were surrounded by a thin red glow. He narrowed his eyes after detecting the retreating fire snake wolves so they would not notice the light.
The fire snake wolves were retreating at full speed. They went through the bushes; Angele could hear the noise made by the grasses.
Angele hid in the shadows and activated the stealth technique. He could see the red shadows passing by and the light from the snake heads on the wolves’ tails.
All fire snake wolves retreated while howling.
Angele stood up slowly, charged forward, and followed after the last wolf.
He advanced for about half an hour in the forest, there were fewer and fewer trees ahead.
By the end of the red trees, there was a tall gray mountain.
On the left side, there was a dark cave that was about 20 meters tall and 10 meters wide. There was also a small river running out of the cave.
The fire snake wolves all rushed into the cave as the red light flashed and they disappeared inside within seconds.
Angele slowly walked out of the bush and drew a circle in the air. He chanted the incantation and created a light-red barrier around his body.
He then tapped on the pouch, creating another white barrier outside the red barrier.
‘Without the Metal Mastery, I have to rely on the magic devices. The barriers can handle about 100 degrees of damage, but they’re much harder to use…’ Shaking his head, Angele approached the cave.
There was a small cave on the left of the large cave and there was a fire snake wolf inside. The fire snake wolf noticed that someone was moving toward the cave, it lowered its body and raised its head.
The high-pitched voice echoed in the cave and the wolves in the large cave started howling as well, Angele could see their glowing green eyes.
Angele remained calm, his eyes were surrounded by a red glow, and a red bird flew out of his chest.
The bird rotated around his body and exploded, turning into a lot of red ribbons.
Angele raised his right hand and grabbed one of the ribbons.
A ball of red light covered his body.
The red light disappeared after about one second and a long red-golden blade appeared in Angele’s hand. The blade was connected to a full arm armor that had a mechanical look. The arm armor also looked large and heavy.
A white lion appeared behind Angele, its body surrounded by white flames.
The lion roared and a red phoenix mark flashed between its brow. The lion’s white fur was coated with flames and it almost felt like its fur was burning.
“Go now.” Angele patted the lion’s head.
The lion roared again and charged forward, turning into a white shadow.
The fire snake wolf in the small cave was pressed against the ground and its throat was bitten open by the lion. The wolf struggled for a while and stopped moving.
The red blood from the wolf ran down the gray ground and moved into the clear river.
The lion did not stop, it turned into a white shadow and charged into the large cave.
Angele slowly walked into the cave with a two-meter-long blade in hand. He could hear the wolves’ groans as they were eliminated.
The smell of blood was getting intense as Angele walked further and there were fewer wolves howling than before.
After about 10 minutes, Angele turned several times by the corners, but he still could not see the end of the cave.
The red glow of the red barrier and the light from his eyes brightened up his surroundings.
The dead wolves lined up on the ground inside the cave and their blood all ran into the river. The river had already turned red and stank.
Angele counted as he advanced and noticed that there were about 100 dead fire snake wolves.
About half an hour later, he reached a black hole that looked like an exit. The flame lion was waiting by the hole quietly, releasing gentle white light from his body.
Angele stopped in front of the hole and peeked inside.
The hole was an entrance to a small stone chamber and there was a deep hole in the ground there that looked like a well. Chilling wind was coming out of the well constantly.
Angele leaned forward and looked down the well. However, the well was so deep that he could not see anything within it.
He took out a small red ball that looked like it was made of rubber. He waved the ball several times and dropped it into the well.
The red ball released a gentle red glow as it started falling, the glow getting brighter and brighter as it fell.
Angele watched the small ball fall; however, the red light was getting weaker and weaker in his sight. After about half a minute, he could only see a red light dot down there.
“It’s not working?”
Angele’s brow furrowed, he took out another red ball out of the pouch and hit the wall with it after shaking it several times.
The ball exploded and released a ball of red flame. The flame ball was bright and it had a diameter of several meters.
The flame ball climbed up the wall and started burning. The whole stone chamber was brightened up by the light.
‘It’s still working, which means, the well is so deep and cold that the light ball is less effective…?’ Angele guessed. He waved his right hand and the fire on the wall extinguished.
Angele stood by the well, he hesitated for a second but still decided to do some investigation.
‘I must make sure what’s under the well is not dangerous if I want to build the altar here.’ Raising his right hand, he created a red flame vortex above his palm.
The vortex quickly shrank and turned into a head-sized black lava ball with golden lava dripping down its surface; the temperature of the lava ball was extremely high.
“Let me give it a try.” Angele carefully threw the lava ball down the well.
The head-sized lava ball accelerated and started falling. The bright red light brightened up the wall of the well and the temperature of the lava successfully handled the coldness down the well.
Several seconds later, a loud noise came from the bottom of the well.
The red light and white smoke spurted out of the well.
Angele looked down after the smoke disappeared. He could see that there was something burning down there and the chilling wind that was coming out of the well turned into warm air flows.
‘It’s about time.’ Angele checked his barriers and looked at the flame lion.
“Guard this place, kill all creatures that approach.” He sent the message to the lion using mentality wave.
The white lion opened its wings and crouched by the well. It felt like the lion understood Angele’s order without any problems.
Angele was satisfied, he nodded and jumped into the well quickly.
He felt like he escaped gravity for a second, all he could hear was the noise made by the wind and the fire. The red dots were getting brighter and larger as he fell.
The well could only fit one person at a time and its wall was extremely smooth. Angele touched the black moss on the wall by accident, the texture was wet and slippery.
Finally, Angele could see the red flames clearly after a while.
Angele’s body hit the ground and it sounded like something exploded.
The burnt bones on the ground were blown to the air and the flame drops splashed.
Everything returned to peace after about ten seconds.
Angele slowly stood up from a fire pit at the bottom of the well. He checked his black robe and used energy particles to clean all the dirt.
The burnt bones were probably dropped into the well by the fire snake wolves; the unpleasant smell from the bones permeated the air. Some of the bones were still burning around the fire pit Angele was standing in.
On the left, there was an underground hall average in size.
Most of the lava and the flames flowed into the hall and started burning on the floor.
There were black wooden boxes lining up on both sides of the hall, most of them were empty and rotten. Rusty black weapons were hanging on the wall, including, blades, spears, and greatswords.
The well was the only thing that could bring air into the hall and there was no other exit.
Strangely, there were three stone coffins sitting quietly at the center of the hall.
The coffins were tightly closed and covered in mysterious engravings—runes or characters that Angele had never seen.
Angele’s brow furrowed as he sniffed at the air. There was dust everywhere and he could smell blood.
‘That’s probably from those black boxes…’ he thought.
Angele stepped on the lava and walked straight to the coffins.
He went around the coffins and noticed that it seemed like there was no way to open them.
Suddenly, something in the coffins made some noise.
Angele quickly took two steps back and kept his distance from the coffins. He raised his black, he was prepared for a possible battle.
The three coffins slowly opened at the same time and white smoke was released from the coffins.
Three black shadows slowly stood up from the coffins as they groaned.
With the red light from the lava, Angele could finally see the appearances of the three shadows.
There were two girls and a middle-aged man. They were all wearing black noble suites and they all had perfect faces. The man was handsome and the girls were pretty. Also, they all had pale skin and eyes with the color of blood.
*CHI CHI CHI*
After three light noise, they jumped out of the coffins like lightning and landed on the floor steadily.
