“This wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t attack me first. I just wanted to extract a small amount of blood from your body but you attacked me without saying a word. This is not my fault.” Angele pursed his lips.
“It’s my fault… Sorry…” The girl still feared Angele’s power; also, it seemed like the vampire girl had low intelligence. “Please… Don’t throw me to the minotaur tribe… I’m scared…”
Angele’s brow furrowed. ‘It feels like I’m talking to a child…’
He looked at the core as blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes. “Alright, answer my questions.”
Angele asked the biochip to create a simple intelligence test and tested the vampire girl’s soul that was inside the core.
About ten minutes later…
Angele stood there with a disappointed look on his face.
‘She has the intelligence that’s same as a two-year-old… What happened to the modern vampires.’
Angele thought for a while and pressed on the surface of the core using his right hand. A pair of translucent golden eyes appeared over his brow.
Countless images flashed in Angele’s brain.
Angele lowered his hands after a while; he was speechless.
‘It’s a father and two daughters. They were so hungry that they had to suck each other’s blood and their brains were damaged for that reason…’
In the girl’s memory, the three vampires woke and decided to hunt for blood. However, they failed to defeat the fire snake wolves since the wolf leader was alive at that time. The wolf leader’s energy wave was so strong that the vampires were severely injured and had to hide in the hall.
Hundreds of years later, the three vampires tried to escape from the cave again, however, the ancient war was going on. The remaining energy waves released by the ancient wizards severely damaged the three vampires again. They had the same power level as a rank 1 wizard and had not consumed fresh blood in a while.
They returned to the hall again and transformed their family treasure into three ice coffins. Also, they had to consume each other’s blood to recover from their injuries. Their attributes were lowered and their power was weakened.
The three vampires would wake up every thousand years and suck each other blood as they needed the energy.
The ice coffins lost their power due to the energy leak over time and turned into normal coffins.
The three vampires’ intelligence was also getting lower and lower.
‘Well, I guess they’re just unlucky…’ Angele checked the vampire’s memory and felt sad for what they went through. ‘Energy can’t be cycled forever, it will run out sooner or later…’
The biochip was still analyzing the gene structure of the core.
Angele started thinking after checking the vampire’s memory.
The three vampire cores were no longer trying to fight back after Angele threatened them. Sadly, their souls were extremely weak since they consumed each other’s blood.
Angele did some detailed tests after checking their memories and finally understood everything.
Angele had three vampire cores in hand and two dead bodies of the vampires.
He hesitated for a second and decided not to destroy the vampire’s dead bodies. Rather, he let the body of the vampire girl that turned into black ash transform into her flesh again.
Angele returned the three dead bodies to the coffins and sealed them. He carefully applied his own rune on the lids and coated the coffins with poisonous energy particles as a warning.
‘I think I can turn the vampire ashes into vampire bodies as long as I have the corresponding vampire cores. The problem is, I didn’t figure out how they increase their own power using other creatures’ blood…’ He assumed that vampires’ ability was related to their genes and he could not just simply copy the process.
However, the gene structure was aggressive and invasive. The features of the gene structure might aid Angele in the future; he stored it in the database.
Angele finished handling the coffins and he exited the hall through the well, returning to the dark cave.
The flaming lion was lying on its stomach by the well—it shouted as it saw Angele climbing up. There was a dead body of a snake in front of it along with some fresh blood and broken stone pieces.
It seemed like the lion killed the snake while waiting.
Angele walked to the lion and patted its head.
The lion shook its head slightly and enjoyed the moment.
Angele raised his right hand and a long blade appeared on his right arm along with the armor piece.
“Come back now.” He slashed forward slightly.
The lion stood up and jumped to Angele.
A ball of bright white light exploded in his sight.
Angele returned to the normal form as the light faded. The armor disappeared with the lion and the blade.
Turning his head around, Angele walked to the well and took out a tube that was filled up with sticky black liquid.
He removed the stopper and then poured the liquid out.
The black liquid dropped to the ground like oil; it expanded and merged into the black stones on the ground. Several seconds later, a tall stone golem was created.
The golem shook its shoulders and walked to the stone wall. It stepped forward and slowly merged into the wall.
“From now on, attack any creature that wants to enter the range, me excluded. Range, 200 square meters,” Angele ordered in a deep tone.
A terrifying face appeared on the stone wall and the golem responded in a deep voice.
Angele nodded and walked to the exit of the cave from the way he came.
The stone golem could last for more than ten years—he found it in the warehouse of the Watchers.
If Angele could survive the incoming chaos era, he would return to the well and continue his research. Also, if he failed, he would no longer need the golem’s service.
15 days later…
In the ruins under the volcano.
A ball of green flame exploded in Angele’s hands and illuminated his face.
Angele stood in the spell lab; there were many dead bodies of golden eagles lying around him. The dark-red blood was dripping down the gray lab table.
He grabbed a black towel and wiped his hands. Angele exhaled deeply and looked at his left hand. Someone just sent him a message.
“Leader, we’ve arrived at the location, the altar is still safe and it seems like the targets are not here yet.” A deep voice echoed in Angele’s ears.
Angele could not recall who it was at first, he thought for a while and realized that it was an elite that he sent to assist the Count.
“Stay in the area and observe the targets when they arrive. Check if there is a man with dark skin on their team. Let me know if there is,” Angele responded after he thought for a while.
The man with dark skin was Mincola, he escaped with Suman the last time Angele met them.
Mincola helped Angele before, so Angele did not want to attack him by accident.
The message was received a while ago and the elite did not respond to Angele immediately, which meant that the distance between them was big.
Angele hanged the black towel on the hanger and rubbed his hands. He walked out of the lab and returned to his bedroom.
He walked to the wall and there was a silver plate on top of a stone cabinet. A translucent crystal orb was floating over the plate and there was a white vortex in the center of the orb.
Angele glanced at the crystal orb and noticed the white vortex as well.
He walked to the orb and tapped its surface.
The vortex expanded and filled up the crystal orb.
The orb turned completely white.
“Leader.” Victoria’s voice came from the orb. “You were right, the shadow lord interfered.”
“Huh? What’s the result then?” Angele questioned in a calm tone.
“Well, the first elder of Elemental Hand joined the fight as well. I found the chance and took Eugene. However, the wizards from the underground world…” Victoria chuckled.
“Eugene is still alive?” Angele’s brow furrowed.
“She’s still alive, but she looks so different now… Ha! Do you want me to bring her to you?”
“Well, show me the image.” Angele was curious after hearing Victoria’s word.
“Sure, I thought you wouldn’t be interested.” Victoria’s voice slowly disappeared.
The image in the orb changed from white to a black hut.
Victoria was wearing a red robe and there was a pig covered with mud in his hands.
Strangely, Angele recognized that the pig was Eugene immediately as the pig had a face that looked identical to Eugene; the pig was crying.
“This is Eugene. Master, you can recognize her, right?”
Angele’s face twitched.
“You’re right.” Victoria chuckled again. “Prince Panko cast the spell using his stone wand, that was an expensive item. I don’t know how Panko acquired the item, but Permanent Polymorph is a high-level spell. The wand was infused with a rune circle that was probably created by a rank 5 wizard. I guess Panko really hates Eugene.”
“Whatever… Just treat yourself with a roast pig meal or you can just finish her off. I’m not interested anymore.” Angele was speechless.
He tapped on the crystal orb and the image disappeared before Victoria responded.
Angele stood in front of the crystal orb. He was not sure how he should react to that result. Eugene was a top-level rank 4 wizard, but she was transformed into a pig.
‘That might be her destiny,’ Angele thought.
