It was Eugene’s own fault, she had too many enemies.
Angele stepped away from the crystal orb and wiped the dust off his long robe. A red triangular rune flashed on the robe and the robe became clean again.
He tested the mind-reading ability in the main world; however, it seemed like the ability was easier to control when he was in the Nightmare Realm.
In the Nightmare Realm, Angele could read an adult’s memory without any problem. However, in the wizard world, a lot of mentality was consumed when he was reading the memory of a vampire girl.
It was probably due to the realm difference. Although Angele’s true form was strengthened, he could not utilize his true power in the main world.
Although the single-eyed giant’s bloodline could increase his attributes, his body was still much weaker than his true form. It was the same for the scorpion woman’s bloodline, the ability was weakened in the main world.
As Angele sat on the bed with his legs crossed, a white envelope appeared above the red cabinet slowly, and it looked like a playback of a burning letter.
The envelope returned to its original shape in drops of flames.
Angele glanced at the white letter, raised his hand, and the letter landed on his palm.
“A new way to send a message?” Angele was a bit confused as he turned the letter around.
The surface of the letter was smooth and slightly wet.
A clean and beautiful sentence was written in gold on the front of the envelope.
Angele unsealed the letter and pulled a yellow leather paper out of it.
The paper was covered with Vivian’s words, she was asking about Angele’s current situation. Then, Vivian mentioned that she had taken care of Eugene and she wanted Angele to rest well. Also, Vivian would be back in a year due to the incident and she wanted to make sure that Angele could reach rank 3 by then. Vivian said she would punish Angele if he could not reach rank 3.
There were many repeated sentences in the letter, most of them were just the caring words from a mother to a son.
Also, it was mentioned that the new method of sending messages was developed by a wizard named Rock last year. Watchers learned the technique not so long ago—they modified the technique slightly, and Angele was one of the few people in the organization who received a message that was delivered using the new technique.
Angele read through the letter and carefully put it into a drawer of the red cabinet.
‘One year till Vivian returns. I should probably finish my things before that.’
He sat on the bed and thought for a while. Black and red runes appeared on the walls as he waved his hands.
There were more than 30 runes on the walls—they released a translucent force field that surrounded them.
Angele checked the red light on the walls of the bedroom and nodded with a satisfied look on face. He relaxed and slowly lay down.
There were a dark-red blanket, a quality pillow, and a soft cotton sheet on the large bed.
Angele lay on the bed, enjoying the warmth of the high-quality bed. It felt like lying on a pile of cotton flowers. He could see the red barriers on the wall with a quick glance and he felt safe in an environment like this.
“I haven’t relaxed like this for a while…” Angele calmed down and fell asleep slowly.
Angele suddenly coughed several times and woke up from the sweet dream right away.
He quickly got up, covered his mouth, and started coughing.
‘It’s probably morning… I hate this thing… It always interrupts my dreams in the morning,’ Angele thought as he glanced at the barriers in the room.
“Well… I’m just paranoid… The ruin is protected by countless traps and I don’t even know why I decided to set up barriers in my bedrooms…” There was a bitter smile on Angele’s face. He got off the bed, put on black boots, and buttoned everything.
He walked to the wardrobe and selected a white silky cloak with a long white belt with silver edges.
After changing the clothes, he put his hand on the chest, turned into a ray of red light, and disappeared into the air.
In the reading room of the mansion by the river.
A ray of red light slowly appeared in the room, turning into a human being.
Angele was wearing a long white robe and half of his face was covered by the tall collar.
He glanced around the room and noticed that the room was separated into two areas.
The area by the window looked like it had traveled through time. It was old and covered with yellow dust. It looked like no one cleaned that area for hundreds of years.
However, the other side was nice and clean. The lab table, the bookshelves, and the furniture looked like they were brand new.
“This is…?” Angele’s brow furrowed, he looked at the strange room and recalled the first time that he entered the Nightmare Realm.
He stepped forward and stood on the line that separated the two areas. He raised his right hand and reached into the decaying area.
Nothing changed, his hand was still the same.
Angele was a bit confused. He remembered something and grabbed a red chair from the normal area, putting it down in the decaying area.
After some light noise, the new chair started decaying at a fast rate. The color of the chair turned dark and the chair was covered with tiny cracks.
The new chair turned into an old chair within seconds.
‘I was right… This is the decaying area.’ Angele scrunched his brow again.
Angele already knew that the decaying area was one of the unsolved mysteries. He learned it from the information that was sent to him by Eye Devil, who had no idea what the decaying area was.
In the decaying area, time would travel much faster; however, only the physical form of the object or creature would change. The soul of the creature would remain the same.
In other words, one might turn into an old man while his soul was still young. The situation happened a lot; however, it could not be resolved or prevented.
There was only one way to handle the situation, which was leaving the area.
‘That’s why the strong beings in the Nightmare Realm are trying to invade the other worlds. They’ll return to this realm after being pressured by the power of the realms. However, they could escape from the strange situations in the Nightmare Realm temporarily during the invasion.’
Angele knew that the decaying area would expand for unknown reasons; however, it would expand faster when the realms were close to each other.
An event was mentioned in the Erin’s Funeral Oration.
The last inheritor of the oration was resting in a cave and set up multiple barriers by the entrance of the cave. It was nearly impossible for an invader or a creature to enter the cave without being noticed by the inheritor. However, several days later, when he woke up, he noticed that there was a girl in red standing beside him and staring at him, and he had no idea how long she had been standing there.
The inheritor knew that the girl was not a soul form as whoever practiced the oration would never fear a soul form. However, when the inheritor was certain that he was staying in a safe environment, the unexpected changes terrified him.
Angele was certain that something similar had happened to other strong beings in this realm and that was the reason why they pursued the ultimate true form.
One would not be injured even when he was sleeping if he reached the highest level, since the opponent would not be able to damage him use normal techniques.
Angele was certain that he would not fear anything if he could reach the highest power level.
‘I think Eye Devil and the other lords all have things they fear and that’s why they’re so excited about the invasion. They wanted to stay in a better realm even if they can’t stay there forever.’
Angele pulled the chair back to the normal area.
The chair broke into pieces and turned into a pile of broken wood.
Shaking his head, Angele turned around and opened the door. The mansion was empty and deadly silent.
“Freia? Orphie?” he shouted in a deep voice.
No one responded. It felt like there was no one in the mansion.
Angele walked down the stairs slowly; his footsteps echoed in the empty mansion.
He noticed that the control panel for the defensive system was impacted by the decaying area and its surface was cracked. There was no light from the panel.
Angele’s expression changed, he looked outside and noticed that the barriers almost disappeared.
By the edge of the barrier, there were countless footprints on the white snow. It felt like there were many people waiting for the barriers to disappear.
“Damn.” Angele snorted and pointed at the control panel, releasing a ball of red flame that surrounded the panel completely.
The defensive barriers around the mansion regained the energy and were activated again.
The burning flames around the panel were the source of their energy.
It was one of the tricks that Angele learned over the years. He turned the magic stones into pure power which could support a damaged rune circle temporarily.
However, the damaged rune circle would be destroyed completely in three days.
The control panel was already damaged and Angele had no way to repair it. He had to support it using the power from the magic stone.
“Freia! Orphie!” Angele shouted again, his voice was buffed by the energy waves, and it echoed in the mansion.
However, no one responded. It seemed like the two girls were not here.
Angele’s expression turned serious, he quickly glanced around and his sight landed on the floor in front of the gate. He could see the wet footprints that went into the building.
