“An anthropoid? How did you find this place? I thought you’d learn from the loss!” The knight on the dragon’s back warned in a deep voice and his voice echoed in the sky.
Angele’s brow furrowed. “Are you patrolling the area? Take me to see Eye Devil.” He showed the knight his black metal cage.
“Teleportation Device?” The knight was surprised. He tapped on the back of the dragon and red light flashed upon his face. Angele noticed that the knight’s head was actually a large white eyeball.
Several seconds later, the red light disappeared from the eyeball, it seemed like the knight was communicating with someone.
“I apologize, Master. I’ve informed the lords of your arrival. Two of the lords sent you invitations. Lord Bone invites you to his floating platform and Lord Eye Devil invites you to the headquarters.”
The dragon knight quickly landed on the ground and lowered his body to show respect.
“Huh? Bone is already here?” Angele glanced at the eyeball knight and scanned him using the biochip.
‘Analysis completed. File created. Eyeball Knight. Power level estimation: Mid-level rank 1 wizard. Unknown buffs detected.’
Angele narrowed his eyes.
He did not expect that a random soldier had the same power level as a rank 1 wizard. He wondered how strong the captains in the army would be. He was certain the captains would have the same power level as a rank 3 or a rank 4 wizard.
If Angele’s assumption was correct, it was impossible for the wizard world to stop an invasion from the Nightmare Realm. There were probably thousands of soldiers that had the same power level as formal wizards. He noticed that the mushroom buildings were endless on the plain.
Angele looked at the knight and questioned him in a careless tone, “How big is the lords’ army? How many soldiers will be sent to the Soul River Realm? Lead me to Bone, you can answer the questions on the way.”
“Yes, Master!” The eyeball knight tapped the dragon’s head and they flew to the floating platform.
“Lord Eye Devil will send 150,000 soldiers to the Soul River Realm, but Lord Bone’s army is much larger than ours.”
“Huh? How many soldiers will Bone bring?”
Angele watched the dragon knight fly to the right and noticed that there was a gray floating platform in the air. For some reason, he did not see the platform at the first glance.
He drew a red rune in the air and started flying to the platform as well, following the dragon knight.
“He will bring 25 million bone warriors with him. The bone warriors were separated into 25 teams and they’ll enter the Soul River Realm from different access points,” the knight responded respectfully. “Lord Eye Devil had an argument with Lord Bone. Lord Bone’s army is much larger than he stated in the agreement.”
Angele chuckled, but he did not respond. The eyeball knight was probably trying to see whom Angele was supporting. That was the reason why he only gave Angele two choices.
Obviously, Eye Devil and Bone were fighting since Bone broke the agreement. They would try to get as much support as they could.
Angele thought for a while and asked, “Are Vapor and Spider here?”
“They’re visiting the Deep Abyss, they’ll not participate in the invasion,” Eyeball knight answered in a low voice.
The red and black shadows covered the sky. They were rotating slowly and the land turned black. The dragon knights were everywhere in the sky.
Angele looked to the left while advancing. He saw that groups of dragon knights flew to the center of the enormous vortex and disappeared into it.
It looked like a pile of black sesame being dropped into water. No one would know that those black dots were dragons unless they looked closely.
“The teleportation gate is unstable so we can only send the groups one by one. It’ll take the gate two more days to stabilize,” the eyeball knight explained as he led Angele to the platform.
Several minutes later, a team of dragon knights flew to Angele and stopped on the left.
“Master Phoenix, Lord Bone and his friends are waiting for your arrival. Please follow us to the platform.” The leading knight was wearing a black-red armor and there was a huge lance in his hand.
The eyeball knight joined the dragon knights without saying anything. He was just a normal soldier after all.
Angele floated in the air and glanced at the dragon knights. He pursed his lips in a smile.
The dragon knight captain lowered his head. “Welcome to the party, Master Phoenix!”
“Welcome to the party, Master Phoenix!”
“Welcome to the party, Master Phoenix!”
Groups of dragon knights approached Angele and surrounded him in the center. They rotated around him slowly and shouted.
Their voices echoed in the sky for a while.
Angele glanced around, the eyeball knights surrounded him and were just flying around.
There was only one path on the left, the dragon knights were turning into a certain formation.
It was a strange and terrifying path.
The dragon knights went around each other and created a cylinder using the dragons’ bodies. The walls of the cylinder were bodies of the dragons.
Angele looked through the tunnel and noticed that Eye Devil was waiting for him by the edge of the floating platform. Eye Devil was wearing a black-purple one piece, she looked like a mysterious princess with a glass of blood wine in hand. She was no longer wearing the mask and Angele finally had the chance to see her attractive face. Angele thought Eye Devil would not be on the floating platform.
On the left of Eye Devil, there was a blonde man wearing a white outfit. Only half of his upper body was covered, he was also drinking a glass of wine and staring at Eye Devil with desire in his eyes.
“Welcome to the party, Master Phoenix!”
The eyeball knights started shouting again.
Suddenly, Angele could feel that his heart was pumping after hearing the noise.
It felt like someone was drumming.
“BAM DA BAM DA BAM DA*
The noise made by the drums was deep and loud. It felt like the whole area was impacted by the noise.
The dragon knights that created the path changed their formation again, revealing the black and red sky behind them.
Angele looked in the direction that the noise came from through the gaps between the dragon knights. He could see that someone was drumming on the floating platform. The man roared as he drummed like crazy.
The humongous drum had a diameter of five to six meters. The accessories on his body were all made of skulls.
‘Bone?’ Angele finally recognized the one that was hitting the drum. He glanced at the Eye Devil and noticed that her expression turned serious. She glared at Bone and left the platform with the wine glass.
The dragon knights were all driven away by the loud noise.
Angele jumped forward and flew to the floating platform.
*BAM BAM BAM*
The noise stopped. Bone threw away the sticks, turned around, and looked at Angele.
“Long time no see!” he shouted from the far side.
“Thanks for the ceremony!” Angele smiled and increased his speed.
A translucent flying creature that looked like a jellyfish passed by. The creature’s body was glowing and it looked like a ghost.
Seconds later, countless blue creatures slowly appeared around Angele’s body.
Angele looked at the blue jellyfish and noticed that those creatures were naked women with long hair, dancing in the wind. The strange blue glow and their long hair covered their faces, that was why Angele did not recognize them right away.
‘Banshees? Banshees! There are so many of them!’ Angele recognized the creatures. Banshees could only be defeated by wizards that were at least at rank 4 in the wizard world and he only read about them in the books he found in the Dark Wizard Tower.
The banshees rotated around Angele and the rest of them were flying around the platform slowly. They looked cold but beautiful.
Several minutes later, he arrived at the floating platform and landed on it with no problem.
The platform was gray and the floor was covered with white bones. It looked like the platform was built like this intentionally.
Bone walked to the center of the platform and sat down by the only table. There were two plates that were full of roasted legs on the table.
“That’s all I have. Take a seat and have some meat! Those legs are from the Spinal Dragons of the northern area!” Bone pulled a large piece of meat down a leg and threw it into his mouth.
“To be honest, you and Eye Devil have similar personalities, but I like you. Eye Devil lies too much and I feel tired just talking to her.” Bone chuckled. “She lied to me so many times and I only lied to her once, but she still got angry.”
Angele smiled but did not say anything. He sat down and looked at the roasted leg. The leg was more than one meter long and he decided to try it out.
Angele grabbed a piece of meat as well and threw it into his mouth; however, he was speechless soon after—the texture of the meat was identical to hard rubber. It was nothing like the rhino meat he had the last time they met.
He applied a lot of force and finally chewed the meat down. It tasted like roasted rubber with no salt and it was not a pleasant experience.
Angele’s cheeks ached after finishing the meat and he decided not to grab another piece.
Bone was staring at Angele and looked confused.
“I heard that you brought a huge army with you. Where are your soldiers?” Angele decided to change the topic.
Bone finished his meat and a cunning smile appeared on his face.
“You’ll know soon. Don’t worry about it.”
