“Is that so?” Angele smiled and stopped talking.
The three swam to the gate on the other side. They were the only creatures that were left in the red dimension pool.
Bone and the man with a white cape were talking about the things they both knew and it seemed like they were having a friendly conversation; however, Angele noticed that Bone kept a distance from the man intentionally.
After about ten minutes, the three arrived at the gate and entered the black vortex.
Angele’s sight turned black for a second, but he could feel that he was landing on the ground.
The surroundings were slowly brightened up and Angele heard something vibrating from behind. A red land appeared in his sight.
Turning his head around, Angele noticed a large red vortex, however, there were no electric pulses sparking in the center.
“Where’s Eye Devil?” Bone was standing beside him.
“She’s there!” The man pointed at the dark red plain.
Angele looked where the man was pointing at; he noticed that there were countless blue chains coming down the sky, they were dragging a large eyeball. It seemed like the chains were trying to sink into the ground with the eyeball.
Eye Devil had a high power level and a strong force field. She was still struggling and all the chains were taut.
“The same situation will last for one hundred thousand years. We’re not in a hurry. We should wait until she has the strength to create a shadow before making any decisions. I’ll be going back to my bone ship now.” Bone left those words, then turned around and slowly flew to the empty sky.
The man looked at Eye Devil and nodded. “It’ll take two to three years for our army to return to the Nightmare Realm. I’ll be resting too, see you later. Also, this is a book written by him, I hope it’ll be helpful to you.” He handed a golden book to Angele.
Angele grabbed the book, nodded, and watched the man disappear into a ray of golden light.
He was the only one left in front of the portal. The chilling wind was soaring and it sounded like terrifying voices of ghosts.
Angele held the woman in one hand and the golden book in the other hand. He checked the surroundings quickly.
‘I shouldn’t go back to my shelter. I need to find a place that is safe and easy to access.’ He started advancing on the empty plain.
The ground was black, it felt like the land was burnt by some furious flames, and there were cracks everywhere.
Angele cast the elemental teleportation numerous times and arrived at a forest by the edge of the plain after traveling more than one hundred kilometers.
The red light illuminated the vibrant green forest.
Angele stopped moving; he could see Eye Devil’s body that was chained up. He cut down some trees and decided to build a wooden house here.
He dropped the woman on the ground as he was not worried that she would try to run away.
The woman looked confused after entering the Nightmare Realm, she watched Eye Devil struggle and saw that Angele broke down trees like breaking chopsticks using his true form.
*BAM BAM BAM BAM*
Angele sharpened the ends of the tree trunks and stabbed them into the ground. His long red hair pulled down the branches and tree leaves like tentacles, and quickly created a complicated green roof with the available materials without any problem.
He placed the roof on the tree trunks and took several steps away, drawing an e-shaped rune in the air.
Seconds later, the tree trunks started growing again, turning into four enormous trees. The new branches and tree leaves expanded, turning into green walls.
The tree branches followed a certain pattern and quickly formed the walls of the house, connecting to the roof made by the hair.
“Incredible…” The woman sighed as she watched the scene. “It’s the first time that I see someone that can easily utilize the power of nature.”
Angele smiled, what he did could be accomplished by any rank 1 wizard in the wizard world; however, people in the Nightmare Realm and the Soul River Realm never thought of doing something similar. They thought only the masters could do something like this.
The wizards refined the general techniques as their power was too weak. The strong beings in other realms leveled up so fast that they did not need any refined techniques.
“We’ll be living in this house,” Angele spoke in the universal language of the Soul River Realm.
It was a large tree house—the walls were more than one hundred meters long, and it could easily fit two people inside. The tree branches separated the house into two levels and created multiple triangular rooms.
The woman entered the house and did a quick check. She stepped out of the house with a surprised look on face.
“Your technique is incredible!” She walked to Angele and praised him. Angele was building the fence using some vines he found in the area.
Angele glanced at the woman and responded, “Don’t you hate me? I forced you to leave your home.”
“Why? I don’t hate you at all. I’m a wanted criminal in the Soul River Realm. I wouldn’t be able to leave the prison without you,” the woman responded in a calm tone. “This is the Nightmare Realm, huh? Well, the environment is as bad as I expected.”
Angele nodded and responded, “You can do some hunting in the area or collect some fruits for food. Wear black when you’re outside and make sure your skin is not exposed. Some strange creatures here feed on fresh blood.”
The woman nodded, it seemed like she already knew that information.
Angele held the golden book in hand and returned to his normal form.
“Do whatever you want, but don’t walk too far. Bone has an army here and you might be killed if they thought you’re a spy.” Angele stretched his back.
Angele disappeared into the flames with the book after finishing the word while the woman in black was thinking about something.
On the second floor of the tree house.
Angele slowly recreated his body in the green room with the book in hand. He looked at the empty room, raised his right hand and created some furniture using the green vines. A chair, a table, a bed, and a lab table were created within seconds.
He walked to the lab table and opened the golden book. He started reading the book slowly.
The man recorded what he experienced when he was traveling in the Nightmare Realm, the Sea Realm, the Soul River Realm, and the Voice Realm.
It took Angele about ten minutes to scan the whole book. He closed his eyes and started thinking after going through everything.
After the scorpion woman’s bloodline mutated, he opened a new path that was never discovered by anyone before.
Angele retrieved the new rune that he asked Zero to simulate; he decided to modify the Erin’s Funeral Oration based on the new rune.
Rune and the Erin’s Funeral Oration were associated with each other closely, but it still took Angele couple days to finish the procedure. He finally found a way to modify the technique.
After the technique was modified, the complete procedure was separated into three steps: Mutation, True Form, and Refined True Form. The new system was developed using the oration’s original system, however, he had a way to utilize the bloodline of the Son of Sun with the new system.
Angele named the new technique the Book of Fear—the name came from the features of the new technique.
He started practicing the new technique immediately after the modification.
Ten days passed in the blink of an eye.
Angele sat on the ground with his legs crossed, his body surrounded by black smoke and white ghost masks.
A ball of golden light was flashing in front of his chest and the black smoke was coated with a clean golden glow.
Angele slowly opened his eyes after a while and pressed on his chest.
“The bloodline of the Son of Sun… I’ll see if I can absorb it using the new technique…” He pulled a light ball out of his chest.
The light ball was struggling and screaming. It was almost like that the light ball was alive, and it was covered with golden tentacles.
Angele did not look at the light ball and his dark-red hair floated in the air.
*CHI CHI CHI*
The hair stabbed into the golden light ball and golden energy was being absorbed by the hair.
Also, Angele started chanting some strange incantation. The speed of the incantation changed constantly and he was releasing a noise that sounded like it was from a knell.
The translucent sound wave started expanding with Angele in the center.
‘Monitoring the procedure…’ Zero’s voice echoed in his ears.
‘Absorbing the bloodline of Son of Sun. Controlling the energy… Creating the rune for the true form…’
Angele’s red eyes slowly turned blue with countless blue light dots flashing in front of them.
It felt like the light ball in his hand was filled up with endless power and his hair was sucking the energy out of the ball; however, the size of the light ball never changed.
The shadow of the true form was created in the boiling black smoke behind Angele.
It was a shadow that was long and slim.
Angele’s true form changed after the single-eyed giant’s bloodline was weakened. His long horn was shortened by half and his true form was covered by black armor. His face was also covered by a black mask, only revealing his chin and lips.
His long sharp tail was also waving in the air.
Angele looked weaker than before, but his new appearance was mysterious.
Also, the large purple rune behind the true form’s shadow was eye-catching. The rune was complicated and it looked like a spider web that came from the voice.
Also, the tree house was surrounded by some heat waves, it felt like the air was burning, but there was nothing around.
Seconds later, the light ball in Angele’s hand exploded, turning into countless golden light dots. The light dots formed small balls of light, but they were not moving at all.
The shadow of the new true form disappeared with the boiling black smoke.
Angele rested on the ground for a while with his legs crossed and slowly stood up.
‘The strength and stamina of the true form are still the same. I also have the illusion ability and the ability to absorb fear. I recreated the unknown ability of the bloodline of the Son of Sun with the extracted bloodline essence. The only thing I lost is the ability to read people’s memory since my single-eyed giant bloodline was weakened. Also, I’ll not be able to acquire the strongest talent ability of the single-eyed giant, the Death Stare. I hope I made a good decision…’
