Eye Devil and the turtle flew into the air after their short conversation.
The cloud was blown away by the intense wind, revealing a blood-red sky. The five huge creatures flew into the sky, turning into tiny light dots.
Angele raised his head and looked at the dots with a serious expression on the face.
‘It seems like they don’t want to hurt their own armies so they decided to find a better battlefield. I wonder where Bone is…’ He looked over the whole silver city—it was a mess, Angele could hear people screaming and smell the blood in the air.
However, he had no idea where Bone was.
Angele stood on the vibrant grass; behind him was a quiet forest. The scene was completely different from the terrifying situation in the city.
He thought for a while, took out a green skull of a human being from the pouch, and pressed on the eyes of the skull slightly.
“Phoenix? What’s the matter? Are you going to accept my offer?” Bone’s voice came from the skull.
“No, but I have a question. Eye Devil’s true form is still recovering, right? How’s her progress?” Angele questioned in a deep tone.
“Eye Devil?” Bone thought for a while and responded, “Her true form is different, it’s larger than usual; also, she has the female troll’s bloodline in his body. I guess what you saw was her refined true form. Don’t worry, you usually see her in her unrefined true form, and her large body comes from her refined true form.”
“Refined true form?” Angele felt relieved. “I thought it was her unrefined true form…”
“That’d be impossible!” Bone chuckled. “She’s slightly stronger than us, but that’s it. Also, I already arrived at the Crystal City. Why don’t you come and join me? There are many rare resources here… and I can share them with you…” Before Bone finished his words, Angele suddenly heard that something was vibrating.
“Lord Bone… Come… Meet your old friend…” A high-pitched male voice came from the skull.
“Urpara! Why do you even come here? You were seriously injured the last time and you’ll die if you don’t leave now!”
“Alright, a fool is trying to attack me for love and justice… I need to eliminate him now. Ah, one more thing, be careful, I’ve noticed what happened to you. Someone else might go after you.” The skull broke into pieces as Bone finished his words.
Angele’s expression turned serious; he looked at the sky, Eye Devil and the four old turtles had already disappeared. It seemed like they were fighting in the sky. He could see some black and waves exploding in the sky like fireworks.
The aura of the Star Giant signet would last for one more minute.
‘I can’t waste time like this, I need to move now…’ Angele glanced around and quickly disappeared into the forest.
The bushes were slashed down, Angele took out the black mirror as he ran. He reached into the mirror with his hand quickly.
His hand moved into the mirror without any problem, it felt like stirring the water in a vase.
An item appeared in Angele after he stirred for a while, it was a piece of black ore with silver dots on the surface.
Angele broke it easily, revealing a white and smooth pearl.
The pearl was releasing some gentle white light and its surface was covered with complicated patterns. The patterns looked like vines with spider webs on the surface.
“What’s this…?” Angele’s brow furrowed, he quickly scanned the item using the biochip.
‘An edible item with strong life energy inside,’ Zero quickly concluded.
Angele did not look at the item, he threw it into his mouth right away.
The pearl turned into a ball of sweet sticky liquid. The liquid ran down Angele’s throat, but nothing happened.
Angele reached into the mirror with his hand again. He took out a black helmet that was made of wood.
He then took out a silver sword, a piece of chest armor, a bottle of black seeds, and a football-sized gem.
Angele took out all the items that were stored in the mirror and tied it to his belt. He suddenly stopped and disappeared into flames after detecting some movement ahead.
“Huh?” someone spoke from the deep forest.
Two old men in green robes stepped out of the bushes after some noise, they were checking the area that Angele was standing at.
“A teleportation ability?” The old man on the left wondered.
“There’s a sulfurous smell in the air.” He sniffed.
“We have no time to waste. We need to get to the silver city as soon as possible. Let’s move!” the old man on the right spoke in a deep tone.
They started moving to the silver city again. Their bodies were coated with a green glow and their feet were not moving—tentacles spurted out of their legs and supported their bodies instead. They almost looked octopuses moving forward with their tentacles attached to the ground and the tree trunks.
The two old men disappeared into the forest within seconds.
After about ten minutes, a fireball appeared at the location Angele had been standing at. The fire turned into a human being quickly. It was Angele with his long red hair and white robe.
He stopped looking at the bushes that the two old men disappeared into and started advancing again.
“Eye Devil, Bone, and the other lords are much stronger than me… I should stay away from the battlefield just like I planned.” He sighed, increased his speed, and moved to an unfamiliar direction.
In the vibrant green forest, there was a large jade statue standing among the tall trees.
It was a half-naked young woman with a long bow in hand. It looked like she was about to move forward and the bottom half of her body was covered by a white skirt. The woman’s long hair and pretty face were quite attractive.
The statue was holding a long bow in a hand and there was a small city in the center of the woman’s other palm.
In the center of the city, there was a white building that looked like a temple. There were half-naked men and women walking around the temple.
In a large bush around the statue, Angele was staring at the statue through the gaps between the leaves.
“It’s beautiful…” He sighed as he looked at the statue. The statue was at least ten thousand meters tall; he was about ten kilometers away from the statue, but he could see every detail of it.
The bushes were several meters tall and the enormous trees were thousands of meters tall. The plants in the area were all humongous.
Angele noticed the plants around were getting taller and taller as he walked. It felt like entering the kingdom of giants.
He thought he was shrinking in size, however, it was the vegetation that was increasing in size.
Angele looked at the city on the statue’s palm and checked the information.
‘The Goddess of Hunt… This must be the place. I heard that there’s no strong army guarding the place but there is a large library here. I should go collect the information I need.’
He could see a waterfall running down the palm but he did not find any ladder. It seemed like no one was leaving the city and no one would try to enter it.
According to the information Angele acquired from Eye Devil, there was no rare item in the temple, and the books stored in the library were just general information, so the lords would not focus on this area.
However, it was the perfect target for Angele.
Angele checked the surroundings, took out a green potion, and drank it all.
After the noise that sounded like water being evaporated, Angele’s body slowly disappeared into the air.
He raised his right hand, but could not even see his own palm.
Angele stretched his body, jumped forward, and flew to the temple.
The place was extremely quiet, it felt like the people in the temple did not notice that there was a war going on. There were rabbits and deer running around the trees.
Angele tried not to touch the trees or tall bushes as he moved to the city on the palm.
A strange scene appeared around Angele as he got closer to the city.
He saw fish that were more than one meter long swimming on the grass. It felt like the air was water for them. There were also shellfish with water spurting out of their shells. Also, those shellfish were swimming in the air.
More and more fishes appeared as he approached the statue.
Angele dodged the fishes carefully as he was flying in the air.
About half an hour later, he finally reached the temple on the palm.
The temple was quiet, he saw several men and women in white outfits walking around, and there was a large shrine in the center of the white buildings.
A group of priests wearing white outfits was cutting a flying fish open while chanting some strange incantation.
Angele moved passed the men in white without making any noise. Those people had the same power level as a rank 1 wizard and it was impossible for them to detect Angele.
No one was guarding the shrine, the only people Angele found were the priests.
Angele moved to the left of the shrine and entered it through a small door. He started searching for the things he needed right away.
Minutes later, he entered a hallway with a black gate by the end. A white cat with two heads was sleeping in front of the gate.
Angele approached the gate, looked at the cat, and pressed on the surface of the black gate. The gate slowly opened without making any noise.
He entered the gate and closed it slowly, then started observing the room carefully.
