Angele checked the situation of the main world and felt that a storm was coming.
He stepped out of the room and left the ruin. He stood by the edge of the volcano.
It was early in the morning and the sky was still gray. Tiny snowflakes were falling down, dancing in the chilling wind.
The snow would make some strange noise every time Angele took a step. He slowly walked to the edge of the snow mountain.
Standing on the cliff, Angele could see the white clouds down the hill—the clouds looked like cotton flowers.
A purple-black ray of light was standing among the tops of the snow mountains, striking into the sky. It looked like a long bar that was stabbed into a mountain.
Angele looked at the purple ray and noticed that it came from a white stone platform. A group of people in black robes surrounded the platform, chanting incantations.
“This place… The energy pool of the elder council…” Angele muttered and inhaled several times. He stopped looking at the platform, turned around, and walked to the ruin. He was just here for some fresh air.
Angele returned to the entrance of the ruin and recalled the moment he acquired the bloodline of the scorpion woman. He found the bloodline when he entered the Nightmare Realm in the ruin.
‘I wonder what will happen if I enter the Nightmare Realm here again. I should be able to handle most of the situations now,” Angele thought. He wanted to return to the Nightmare Realm in a safe location, but he was still interested in the secret treasure that he failed to retrieve a long time ago.
He pressed his right palm on the chest and released some red light. The light changed color several times.
‘Alright, the coordinates should be correct…’ Angele glanced around and made sure that he was the only one here. Red light flashed again and he disappeared into the air.
In the Nightmare Realm.
Black dust was flying in the dark sky like gray snow.
The platform on the ruin, the area around the ruin, and the surface of the snow mountain were all covered with the black dust.
A ball of red light flashed beside the entrance of the ruin and Angele appeared, wearing a white robe.
He looked at the sky, looking confused.
“Black snow?” Angele grabbed some dust and rubbed it. The dust was burning hot and there was fire sparking around it.
The area was deadly silent; there was no one around, and the whole world was quiet.
The world was dark and the only source of light was the golden light ray that penetrated the clouds.
Angele hesitated, he noticed that the rusty platform in the front was covered with dust. It seemed like the platform was not activated for years.
He stepped on the platform and stood steadily.
The platform started going down slowly.
It took a while for the platform to reach the bottom. The door opened, revealing a red tunnel that was utterly quiet.
The walls of the tunnel were covered with thick dust, it seemed like no one had walked in it for years.
Angele glanced around and his expression loosened. He slowly stepped down the platform.
He started advancing through the red tunnel. Angele stopped by a painting that was hanging on the wall after turning several times.
The painting was also covered by the dust.
Angele tried to clean the painting; however, he noticed that the dust had already become a part of the painting and he could barely make out the image under it.
He scrunched his eyebrows and started to advance using the route that led him to the ruin of the Nightmare Realm the last time.
Seconds later, a black grandfather clock appeared in the front. The clock was lying on the ground, broken in half. The wooden part of the clock was burnt black.
Angele was a bit confused, he increased his speed.
Several minutes later, he stopped in front of a spacious room, looking at the wall that was covered with vines quietly.
“Wall of Confusion?” He stood in front of the wall, looking at the vibrant vines. “Are you still alive?”
No one responded.
Raising his hand, Angele removed the vines, but the only thing he could see was a red wall.
‘What happened to this place?’ He scratched the wall using the tip of his finger.
He sniffed at the finger—there was a weird smell on it.
Angele left the room and followed the original route. He arrived at a small indoor garden minutes later.
The garden was filed with colorful flowers and green leaves. The swing was waving in the gentle light, but the terrifying woman he met the last was no longer there.
Angele stood by the entrance of the garden and inhaled deeply. There was a fishy smell in the air.
He glanced around the garden and walked to the bronze door on the other side. It was the entrance to the illusion pool.
Angele noticed that the door was half open as he approached it, but he could not see what was behind it.
He pushed the door open carefully.
The door slowly opened.
Inside, it was a short tunnel and there was a large door by the end with a large keyhole. The door was broken, it seemed like someone knocked on the door with a strong force, and there was a large irregular hole in the center.
Angele noticed that there were some broken white bones on the ground, he was not sure what the creature they belonged to was.
He slowly approached the door, lowered his body, and entered the door through the hole.
A spacious white hall appeared in the front and there was a dried pool in the center. The blue statues of the scorpion women around the pool were all broken.
The whole hall was coated with a light blue glow and it seemed like the blue glow was released by the pool.
Angele stepped forward, lowered his head, and looked at the pool.
Some blue cracks that looked like spider webs were at the bottom of the pool; also, the cracks could easily fit a person.
Angele narrowed his eyes and walked to a scorpion woman statue.
The body of the blue statue was broken into pieces, but the bottom half of the statue was still standing there. He could see drops of red blood around the statue.
He crouched and was about to check the blood. Angele suddenly detected something was approaching him from behind at full speed.
Angele had no time to think; a shadow of a giant appeared behind him and he struck forward right away.
His right arm ached and a large piece of flesh was pulled off his arm, revealing the white bone inside.
He could hear a beast roaring.
However, Angele did not see any creature around. The beast stopped roaring and the area became quiet again.
‘This thing pulled a piece of flesh off my arm easily, which means, the beast had the same power level as a rank 3 wizard.’
Suddenly, Angele raised his right hand and struck forward.
A ball of translucent shadow was blown away, hitting the wall and leaving a crack on the surface.
Angele’s body disappeared into the air and he hit the center of the crack like a bullet. A spinning red rune circle appeared on his back.
Angele attacked again—intense red light was released from the rune circle, covering the whole crack on the wall.
Under the red light, a large pair of red hands made of lava came out of the rune circle and pressed on the creature that was in the center of the crack.
The creature slowly revealed itself in the red light, held tight by the hands.
It was a dog with three large heads.
Angele took three steps back and let the hands hold the dog.
He took out a yellow bird egg from the pouch and cracked it. He then threw the cracked egg at the large dog.
The bird egg turned into a pile of sticky yellow liquid, covering the body of the dog. The dog could no longer stay invisible and Angele finally had a clear view of it.
The dog had three heads that could release translucent flames from their mouths and its fur was black. Also, the dog had red eyes and there were collars on its necks.
“A three-headed dog? What? Is that Cerberus?” Angele was surprised. He checked the wound on his right arm. It had already recovered and it almost looked like he was not injured at all.
He walked to the Cerberus and started observing it carefully. The dog’s behavior was restricted by the rune circle.
The dog was about one meter tall and it was staring at Angele while roaring.
Angele thought for a while and scanned the dog using the biochip. He recorded the creature’s mentality wave and energy wave. He also collected the creature’s fur and muscle tissue. Everything was stored in the mirror quickly.
The black mirror Angele found from the Soul River Realm had already become an important item. Angele stored most of his lab subjects in the mirror and the items that he used a lot in the pouch.
He tapped on the dog’s heads quickly.
The heads of the dog exploded, white brains and red blood splashed on the wall. The dead body of the dog fell to the ground and stopped moving.
Angele deactivated the rune circle and the large hands slowly disappeared. He had dozens of methods to deal with the creatures that were weaker than rank 4 wizards.
He returned to the edge of the pool and started flying to the cracks at the bottom of the pool.
Angele floated above the blue cracks and noticed that the radiation energy from the cracks seemed familiar.
‘This energy is similar to the energy I found from the world stone altars… However, it’s stronger and more chaotic…’ Angele’s brow furrowed. ‘Wait… Don’t tell me this is a new dimension fissure…’
Suddenly, he heard some strange noise.
Angele quickly took out a green skull from the pouch—he could hear Bone’s voice coming from it.
“Phoenix, Eye Devil wants to build the Eye Tower of the Doomsday and asks us to collect souls. We need to start collecting the souls right away if you have the time.”
“Eye Tower of the Doomsday?” Angele knew what the item was as it was mentioned in the information from Eye Devil. It was a device that could buff the power of her people. The souls would be able to help Eye Devil break the seal and the realm wall. The only thing they needed to do was to collect the souls.
