“Seal the dimension vortex?!” Angele’s expression changed. He knew that they would not be able to return to the Nightmare Realm if the vortex was sealed. It was impossible for him to return to the wizard world using the scorpion woman’s bloodline. The bloodline was too weak for long-distance teleportation. If the vortex was completely sealed, they would have to spend the rest of their lives in Soul River Realm.
Angele nodded slightly. “I have something I need to take care now. I’ll inform Bone for you.”
“Sure!” Eye Devil responded and cut the disconnection.
The woman in front of Angels stopped thinking, a translucent but strong force field surrounded her body. The broken pieces of stones and chains all floated in the air.
“One thousand years… It has been one thousand years! I’m Enya and I’m finally free!” Countless large mouths appeared on the woman’s body. The mouths were full of sharp teeth.
The woman lowered her body and started shaking. Bumps appeared on her back and head. It seemed some new body parts were growing.
“I’ll have my revenge this time! Goddess of Hunt! You sealed me for more than one thousand years and I’ll make you pay! Ugh…” She suddenly felt dizzy and her body was grabbed by a large pair of hands that came from nowhere. She was picked up by the hands, whose owner started running right away.
Angele deactivated the shadow of the giant and started running with the woman under his right arm. He was holding a green skull in the other hand and saying something with a serious expression on the face.
“Bone, Eye Devil is in trouble and she needs your help. We can’t let them seal the dimension vortex or we’ll be trapped in this realm forever!”
“What?! Nime is helping her and she can’t even deal with Sea God?” Bone responded right away.
“I’ll be there soon, where are you now?”
There was a bitter smile on Angele’s face. “I’m trapped in a dimension hallway and I have to follow a specific route to escape this place. I’m counting on you.”
Bone had no idea that Angele would not be able to help.
“Oh, right, you’re still recovering… I’ll go help her now. Damn it! Eye Devil promised me that everything would go as planned!” Bone cursed and his voice slowly disappeared.
Angele heard the scream from Eye Devil again.
“Inpulous! Are you crazy! No!” Eye Devil kept shouting, her voice was echoing in Angele’s ears.
“The Soul River Realm will be peaceful for the next one hundred thousand years if I can kill you! I’ll sacrifice my people and soul to accomplish my goal…” a deep and old voice spoke.
Angele quickly ran down the endless hallway; after about ten minutes, he suddenly stopped, and hit the wall on the left, opening a small door.
He entered the door without any hesitation and successfully returned to the first hallway.
He increased his speed and ran down the hallway. He wasted no time and returned to the library within two minutes. The entrance to the cave closed slowly.
Angele sniffed in the library and a confused look appeared on his face.
“The fear is thickening in the air…” Angele noticed that he could detect intense emotions from others. The fear smelled like tasty cream to him and it was making him angry.
Angele could smell fear before, but the smell had never been so intense.
The area around the library was deadly silent and there was nothing moving outside the door.
Angele walked to the door and pushed it open.
It was quiet. and the old two-headed cat had already disappeared.
“Huh… What happened?” The woman in Angele’s arm woke up. “Damn it! How dare you…”
Angele lowered his hand with no expression on the face. The woman fainted again, Angele checked the surroundings and disappeared into the shadow.
He appeared in the shadow of the temple within seconds.
He could hear monsters roaring and people screaming outside the hall. Children were crying, warriors were yelling, and weapons were making noises.
Fear was everywhere in the air, it felt like there were pieces of tasty cream cakes floating around.
‘What’s going on…? I felt so hungry, and this attractive fragrance…’ Angele was confused. It seemed like he was more sensitive to the emotions of others after receiving the information from the woman. It felt like one of his organs was changed because of the information.
‘This woman is weak but she was sealed. I assume she has some sort of special ability,’ Angele assumed. Blue light flashed in front of his eyes and scanned the woman.
Angele lowered his head and understood the reason.
‘The woman will be strengthened after she absorbs the negative emotions of mortals. She can purify an emotion and convert it into her power. That’s why she was kept in the deepest area of the dimension hallway…’
He entered the dimension hallway and took the woman out of the cave without any problems. However, everything would not have been so easy if he lacked knowledge.
For example, Angele was certain that Bone lacked knowledge. He had the ability to analyze the information he collected and more than ten ways of handling the dimension hallway.
Bone or Eye Devil would probably destroy the hallway with pure force, but it would take them much longer to do so.
Angele had amassed a lot of knowledge and information after he reincarnated into the wizard world. He was certain that most of the people he met only gathered whatever knowledge they needed. The old eye-gouging dragon had a whole library of rare books, but it lived much longer than Angele.
The biochip helped him store the information and he did not have to memorize everything he saw using his own brain.
Angele moved in the shadows of the hall with the woman in his arms.
Dead bodies of the temple guards lay on the floor, countless black bats and dragon knights were rotating around the hand of the statue.
Angele rushed to the edge of the hand and jumped forward, landing on the back of a large black bat.
“Supervisor?!” the bat said; it sounded surprised. “Why’re you here?”
Angele had no time to explain. “Take me to the dimension vortex, I need to get back as soon as possible.”
“Yes!” The bat was from Bone’s army and knew that Angele had the right to give orders to the soldiers. The bat turned around and started flying to the silver city without any hesitation.
The black bat released some sound waves—it seemed like the bat was communicating with other bats.
The black bats that were about to help returned to their positions after receiving the message.
Angele grabbed the bat’s fur tight and asked it to increase its speed.
He noticed that the fear in the air was getting intense as they flew.
Also, fear was not the only emotion he detected, there was also sadness, pain, and anger. All the negative emotions gathered around his body.
Actually, they were just moving to the woman in Angele’s arm.
Other creatures would not be able to see negative emotions; however, Angele could see that negative emotions turned into black smoke and moved into the woman’s body.
He sniffed at the black smoke and a ball of smoke was sucked into his nose.
‘How pleasant…’ Angele was enjoying the negative emotions. He started to absorb the black smoke that was created by the negative emotions unconsciously.
With the negative emotions in his body, Angele noticed that the scorpion woman’s bloodline was changing, and the bloodline of the single-eyed giant weakened.
After about ten minutes, Angele and the woman in black were surrounded by a large ball of black smoke as the black bat flew.
The black smoke balls rotated around Angele’s body, they turned into terrifying faces and disappeared into the air.
Angele was absorbing the black smoke at a fast rate, the black smoke gathered around the woman’s body was all absorbed by him.
The woman in black woke up again, she noticed that the black smoke was not absorbed by her body, and was surprised.
‘How is that even possible?! Scorpion woman doesn’t have the ability to absorb the negative emotions directly, this guy…’
White ghost masks appeared around Angele’s body. There were many types of masks: angry masks, crazy masks, smiling masks, and blank masks. They absorbed all the negative emotions except the fear. Fear was absorbed by Angele directly.
The Sound of the Knell created those ghost masks and it seemed like they were just taking what they needed.
The white masks rotated around Angele’s body, it felt like they were floating in the black smoke.
The black bat felt that his body was surrounded by some chilling air. It was terrified by what was happening on its back and was about to drop Angele to the ground.
Angele lowered his body on the back of the bat; his body was surrounded by the black smoke and he was absorbing it through his nose.
‘The bloodline of the scorpion woman was greatly strengthened…’ the biochip reported.
‘The effect of Erin’s Funeral Oration has changed. Unknown changes happened to the bloodline of the scorpion woman and the changed bloodline conflicts with the bloodline of the single-eyed giant…’
‘The conflict has become a problem. Do you want to give up the bloodline of the single-eyed giant?’ the biochip questioned.
Angele was woken up by the warning.
‘Give up?’ Angele started thinking after hearing the question.
The bloodline of the scorpion woman helped him to teleport into the Nightmare Realm and mysterious changes had happened to it; however, the bloodline of the single-eyed giant also offered a terrifying power. His attributes would decrease if he gave up the bloodline of the single-eyed giant.
If Angele did not give up one of the bloodlines, he would reach a bottleneck and stop improving sooner or later.
