However, the trip was extremely dangerous. Eye Devil gathered her army and she probably had many strong servants. Angele had to take the risk.
His expression turned serious as he thought.
The campfire was burning in front of him, releasing bright yellow light. The dancing flames were noisy in the quiet environment.
He took out a small metal cage from the pouch, it was a tool that was gifted to him by Eye Devil.
He put everything away and took out a black gem from the pouch. The gem had a black edge and a red center.
‘The dragon blood essence stone of the eye-gouging dragon from a ghost child… Without the knowledge of the old dragon, I’d never know how to extract this thing.’ It was the blood stone he acquired from the items that were delivered to him by Eye Devil after the trade.
He finally had the chance to use it.
‘According to the data, eye-gouging dragons had the strongest dragon roars. They could utilize their other sensory organs due to their missing eyes.
Angele took a deep breath and a translucent shadow of a giant slowly appeared behind him.
There was a long horn on the giant’s head and the giant was more than seven meters tall. His body was covered in black armor with thorns and there was a pair of golden eyes over his brow. It was Angele’s improved true form.
Angele threw the blood stone to the air.
It felt like the stone dropped into water as merged into the giant’s body.
The blood stone melted and turned into pure energy flow. The energy flow transformed into a tiny gray eye-gouging dragon with more than ten pairs of wings on its back roaring furiously. The dragon looked like a large black hedgehog that was trying to use the spikes to defend against the giant’s power.
The tiny eye-gouging dragon opened its mouth and shouted, “I wangen spnaien yoau!”
The words meant: “Death is only the beginning”.
The giant waved its hand and the dragon charged into his body.
Seconds later, the shadow disappeared and everything returned to normal.
Angele stood up and glanced around with a blank expression on the face.
‘Death is only the beginning? What does it mean? Is the dragon’s mind power…? What a stubborn dragon… I had to use the power of my true form to absorb it.’
Blue light flashed in front of his eyes and he shook his head, looking depressed. ‘Sadly, I can’t retrieve the knowledge from the dragon sigil, only dragons can inherit the sigils. The Terror Dragons have strict rules I guess.’
Angele sat down and added some wood to the campfire. He then started meditating again—he wanted to see the changes happening to his body.
He absorbed the blood essence of the eye-gouging dragon and it felt like there was some icy water running through his organs.
There were two possible results after Angele absorbed a new bloodline. The bloodline would either be controlled by the single-eyed bloodline and the scorpion woman’s bloodline or the three bloodlines would merge into each other and turn into a new bloodline; however, the eye-gouging dragon’s bloodline had to be at the same level as the two other bloodlines.
‘There are strong eye-gouging dragons and weak eye-gouging dragons. It all depends on the dragon’s level now…’
Angele decided not to control his bloodlines and just let them develop.
It felt like his organs were being slashed through by knives, the pain was getting more and more intense every second.
Angele’s brow furrowed and waited for the time to pass.
It was getting bright and the campfire was slowly extinguished; there was still smoke slowly rising from it.
Angele slowly opened his eyes and woke up from the meditation; his body was no longer aching. He quickly checked his condition.
The blood essence had completely disappeared; however, the merged scorpion woman bloodline and the single-eyed giant bloodline was strengthened.
‘Zero, check my condition now.’ Angele ordered in mind.
‘Angele Fenrir Rio. Strength 20.2 (65). Agility 18.5 (9.5). Stamina 30.0 (71). Mentality 200.7. Mana 157.2. Gene limit not reached. Impacted by the frost damage from the dragon breath.’
‘So, my strength decreased from 21 to 20, stamina decreased from 32 to 30, and my mentality increased to 200. The attributes of my true form also increased.’ Angele nodded with a satisfied look on face. ‘It seems like the frost damage from the dragon breath has weakened. I hope I can get rid of this thing in the Soul River Realm…’
Zero suddenly warned him before Angele was about to move.
‘Unknown gene change detected… Checking…’
‘Analysis completed. Talent ability of the true form has changed. A new talent ability acquired, the Giant Roar.’
‘Checking the talent ability… Comparing data… Roar: Your emotional roar will deal area damage when you’re in true form.’
‘Warning! Your stamina will be decreased temporarily when you use the roar.’
Angele was surprised by the warnings. He thought for a while and stood up. He waved his right hand and all the sentries returned to his hand.
He collected the sentries and checked the map. He started advancing to Eye Devil’s territory again.
Three days later.
A black shadow stepped out of the dark but vibrant forest.
The man was surrounded by a translucent black force field that blocked all the branches. His white silk robe and long red hair were quite eye-catching.
“Finally, I’m here…” Angele exhaled lightly, he stood on a hill and overlooked at the yellow plain.
On the right of the endless plain, there was a city surrounded by sand. It seemed like the city was abandoned a long time ago.
Angele took out the yellow map, opened it, and tapped on it slightly.
A black light ball was released by the map and it floated in front of him. The ball slowly transformed into a black eyeball.
“This is the mother base! This is the mother base! All the eyeballs, please return to the base, the invasion will start in two days!”
A cold female voice came from the eyeball—she kept repeating the sentence.
Angele was excited. “Finally, I can reach my destination in two days as two days here is longer than two days in the wizard world.”
He felt relaxed after hearing the announcement.
A day in the Nightmare Realm was 30% longer than a day in the wizard world. It would only take him half a day to reach Eye Devil’s base.
He grabbed a water pouch and drank some water. Angele walked down the hill and headed to Eye Devil’s base at full speed.
Wind was blowing on the yellow plain and the sand in the wind blurred his sight. Angele casted a defensive spell to block the sand after he walked down the hill.
He followed the direction marked on the map and walked for about half an hour. He noticed that there were white bones on the ground, some were human bones but the rest looked like they were from some beasts.
Angele stepped on a bone and it broke into pieces immediately.
He glanced around and noticed that there was a rusty blade on the right. The blade was red and a dried body of a wolfman lay beside it.
Angele walked to the blade and checked the wolfman’s body.
The body had dried in the strong wind. The wolfman died holding a black shield in hand and his fur looked like a black coat.
“There was a battle here?” Angele checked the wolfman’s body, he found a broken water pouch and some dried flesh. There was also a white wooden amulet with an old look—several words were engraved on its back. They were written in the ancient language and meant: “Remember to wash your feet”.
Angele chuckled, it felt like that the wolfman’s parents made him the amulet.
He checked the wolfman’s feet and could see that there were marks left by blisters on the surface of the wolfman’s feet.
Angele moved away from the body and started advancing again. He saw more and more wolfmen on the way. He also found several dead bodies of single-eyed men with dark skin.
He recognized the single-eyed men right away—he had seen some in Eye Devil’s party.
Minutes later, some dark-red light appeared in the sky. The boiling dark clouds turned into a humongous spinning vortex, releasing red light from the center.
It was getting dark. The night of the Nightmare Realm fell earlier than the main world’s. The red light from a vortex that was surrounded by black clouds in the sky was the only source of light here.
Angele slowed down as there were more and more dead bodies on the ground.
He noticed that there was a floating black vortex in the front.
The vortex looked like a spinning tornado and there were red electric pulses in its center.
It was huge and looked like an enormous black shell that had a diameter of three kilometers.
Under the vortex, there were countless egg-shaped buildings that had the height of more than ten meters. There were creatures that looked like ants moving out of the buildings all the time.
The black buildings looked like black mushrooms growing on a muddy land.
Angele overlooked the area and noticed that there were thousands of black mushrooms. There were also black dragons that were five to six meters long lying among the mushrooms.
Over the black mushrooms, there were hundreds of dark-red dots floating in the air. The largest light dot was a hexagonal platform.
The red dragons around the platform were roaring, their voices sounded identical to the voice of bulls.
The dragons rotated around the platform and it almost looked like they were fishes swimming in water.
A loud noise came from behind and a dark shadow covered and Angele’s body.
Raising his head, Angele looked at the sky.
A black dragon with a warrior in black armor on its back stopped behind Angele as the dragon was swinging its wings.
