Suddenly, Angele heard that a book was dropped to the floor on the other side.
“Who’s there?!” Angele raised his head and saw a book with a white cover on the floor.
He checked the surroundings, walked to the book, and picked it up.
Another book dropped to the floor, Angele narrowed his eyes, and walked to the book.
Suddenly, a pair of black boots with golden edges appeared in front of his eyes.
Angele stopped moving immediately.
Raising his head, Angele saw a man with a pale face staring at him. The man was about one meter away from him, smiling.
The length of the man’s neck suddenly increased, his head moved to Angele and stopped right in front of Angele’s face.
“Who’re you?” Angele disappeared into a ball of flames and moved several meters away from the man.
“Me? Ha…” The man was wearing a black noble suit with golden badges on his shoulders. The man’s neck shrank and slowly returned to normal.
Angele’s sight blurred and everything in front of disappeared. The man disappeared with the book on the floor and the place was extremely quiet. Angele thought he was seeing illusions.
He glanced around and his sight fell upon the bookshelf on the right.
He carefully pulled one of the books out of the shelf.
A cave slowly appeared on the white wall and he could see stone stairs leading down. There was chilling wind coming out of the cave.
With a flick of his finger, a ball of red fire slowly flew into the cave, brightening up the walls.
Angele hesitated for a second and stepped into the cave.
He released more than ten fireballs, they floated around Angele’s body and brightened up the surroundings.
The cave connected to a black tunnel and he had no idea how long the latter would be.
Angele started walking down the tunnel.
After about ten minutes, Angele heard some light noise from behind, he turned his head around and saw a black shadow flashing in the darkness.
‘Is that the door?’ He remained calm and started advancing again.
After about ten more minutes, a black metal gate appeared in the front.
Complicated vine patterns were engraved on the surface of the two-meter-tall gate and the handles on the door were shaped like an angel, whose wings acted as handles.
Angele walked to the gate. The fireballs around him illuminated the angel, reflecting bright white light.
The ground was covered in thick dust and there were cobwebs in the corners, an unpleasant smell permeated the air.
Broken pieces of substances that looked like shells dropped to the ground from the gate.
The white angel slowly raised its head like it was alive, staring at Angele who was standing in front of him.
“Who’re you?” The angel’s deep voice echoed in the tunnel; bright white light was released from his eyes, landing on Angele’s chest.
“I’m just a mortal that wandered into this area…” Angele responded in the universal language of the Soul River Realm.
“Leave now…” The angel was no longer looking at him. “The secrets of the temple are kept here.”
Angele stared at the angel for a while. He suddenly raised his hand and grabbed the angel’s wings, pulling them open.
The metal gate suddenly vibrated.
The angel lowered his head and stopped talking.
The angel’s body separated into two even parts as the gate opened. Inside the gate, it was a short hallway with another black metal gate at the end. The gate looked identical to the one that Angele just opened.
The angel on the gate slowly raised his head again. “Give up now… You’re trying to pass through the Endless Tunnel…”
Angele’s brow furrowed. “I’m here for the secret! There’s no way that I’m going to give up when I’m only one step away.”
He stepped forward and opened the door again.
The second gate opened, there was a short hallway inside with a gate by the end of it.
“Give up now…” The angel’s voice was still echoing in the tunnel.
Angele turned his head around and noticed that the gates he had opened were still there. It felt like he was trying to enter a place that was sealed behind countless gates.
“So, this is the dimension hallway… Interesting…” Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes and a pair of golden eyes appeared above his brow.
Seconds later, he suddenly hit the wall on his left.
A black stone gate appeared on the wall and it was cracked open. White dust splashed in the air.
There was light coming out of the gate, it was a tiny stone chamber with numerous black metal chains on the ground.
Angele walked to the door and peeked inside.
The interior of the stone chamber was blurred under the dim light. Angele quickly released several balls of orange flames.
The fireballs perished in the air as they entered the stone chamber.
Suddenly, the ceiling of the stone chamber started shaking, dust and broken pieces of stone were falling to the floor.
Angele heard that someone was screaming—the voice sounded identical to the voice of Eye Devil, it seemed like she took some damage.
“Come in, friend.” A deep female voice came from the stone chamber. “This place is going to collapse soon.”
Angele stepped into the stone chamber slowly. The blue light released by the walls brightened up the room.
In the center of the stone chamber, there was a naked woman that was tied up by some metal chain.
The woman’s head and limbs were all tied up and she was hung in the air.
The chains were bound to the ground or the walls. They looked just like normal iron chains.
“Are you summoning me?” Angele stood in front of the woman and raised his head.
“You already knew.” The woman’s body was coated with a black substance that looked like silk and the substance completely sealed her inside. Angele thought she was naked.
The woman lowered her head and her face reflected on the black substance.
“I need you to do me a favor, I was….”
Angele glanced around and interrupted, “Are you sealed here by someone?”
The woman hesitated, it seemed like she did not expect Angele to go straight to the point.
“You want me to help you, right? Cut the crap, just tell me what you can offer if I let you out.” Angele checked the surroundings. “I don’t think there’s anything valuable in this chamber.”
“Offer… Well… I can smell something familiar from your body, this thing might be helpful to you…” A mouth appeared on the woman’s chest, it released a ball of black smoke, which slowly flew to Angele.
Angele reached to the center of the smoke ball.
A lot of information was transferred into his brain through mentality waves.
‘Unknown mentality wave detected, accept it now?’ The biochip suggested.
Suddenly, Angele felt dizzy, there was so much information that he could barely handle it.
“Scorpion woman is good at controlling people’s emotion. That information might help you control the emotion,” the woman opened her mouth again; however, her voice changed, and it sounded male now.
“I was sealed by the Goddess of Hunt thousands of years ago and I’m extremely weak right now. This is the best chance for me. You’d better hurry before the servants of the temple come.” She sounded anxious.
The black smoke slowly disappeared into the air and Angele stopped thinking.
“I don’t know who you are and what you are, but I’ll help you if you’re sealed here by the temple. An enemy’s enemy is my friend.” He grabbed a chain and gripped it.
The metal chain broke into pieces with a noise and some translucent blue smoke was released from the broken chain. Angele could also hear a woman screaming.
Angele narrowed his eyes and disappeared into the air. Several seconds later, he appeared in the chamber again.
All the metal chains inside the chamber broke into pieces.
The blue smoke from the chains were souls that kept screaming.
The woman started falling and slowly landed on the ground.
“Finally… I’m finally out…” The woman looked at her hands, looking confused. It seemed like she could not believe that things could be this easy. The woman slowly raised her head and looked at Angele.
“I don’t know what I should say about you… A fool or a crazy man… I didn’t think you would help me…” The woman sighed, she sounded surprised.
Eye Devil’s scream echoed in the air again.
Angele’s expression changed, he noticed that Eye Devil sounded anxious and angry. It seemed like her voice could penetrate any substance.
However, it seemed like the woman in front of Angele could not hear anything. She just stood there and it looked like she was thinking of something.
Angele was about to say something, but he noticed someone was calling him. He quickly took out a dark-red map from the mirror and opened it. The surface of the map was coated with blood.
A strange mentality wave was transferred to Angele’s brain.
“Phoenix, things have changed, I need your help!” Eye Devil’s nervous voice was sent from the map. “Sea God is trying to sacrifice himself and kill me. He found the ancient tree, he’s trying to seal the dimension vortex!”
