Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
Two men with white bull-like horns covered their bodies in long white robes.
“What a scene!” The younger man looked at the shadow and sighed.
The other man raised his head. “This is totally different from the energy waves of the abyss… Neil, let’s play a trick on him.” He looked at the young one.
The young man smiled, stepped forward, and raised his right hand. He blew some air onto the palm.
Some white smoke was released from his mouth.
The white smoke expanded and turned into a large ball of white frost smoke, charging at the shadow behind Angele.
The souls in the sky were frozen into ice blocks and started falling. The ice blocks broke into pieces after landing on the ground.
It seemed like the giant scorpion noticed the threat and suddenly straightened its back.
The terrifying voice echoed in the sky, the frost climbed up the surface of the shadow, and was about to turn the shadow into a large ice block.
“I… em YefurKn (I’m the Lord of Terror)!” the strange scorpion shouted; it seemed like the scorpion was speaking an ancient language.
The scorpion’s body was surrounded by red flames and the flames melted all the frost.
Angele opened his arms—it felt like he was trying to hug the sky. Rays of white light went through the holes on his faces.
A circle formed by four beads was rotating slowly on top of his head and a ball of red flesh started forming in the center of the circle. The flesh ball was pumping like a heart.
The two white robes’ expressions changed after hearing the scorpion’s voice and they quickly exchanged eye contact.
“The Dread Aura… A Dread Lord that’s accepted by the realm power… But this is the southland…” The young man sighed, he sounded surprised, depressed, and excited at the same time.
The old man narrowed his eyes and stepped forward.
“Dread Lord, we apologize for our joke. Please accept our gift,” he spoke in a loud voice and threw a thing that looked like an eyeball in the air.
The white eyeball flew into the air and stopped in front of the scorpion’s forehead, releasing a large amount of white smoke.
“This is an energy eye we acquired through a trade with someone from the northland. I think it’ll help you recover your true form,” the old man spoke in a serious tone.
Angele’s mind and body all became part of the large scorpion; however, he could not control the scorpion.
It felt like he was dreaming and just following his instinct. Angele did not want to say anything, but the scorpion still opened its mouth. He was accepted by the realm power and just spat out those words.
A warm and gentle aura surrounded the area. It felt like he was embraced by his mother.
Angele recognized the aura immediately—he had used the power of this aura multiple times. It was the power of the nightmare, the realm power of the Nightmare Realm and the strongest plague.
Angele could feel that he was trapped in a closed area. The area was created by white rune circles that looked like mirrors. He could not move at all; it was a strange dimension.
The rune of the circle looked familiar to him. It was the perfect sign he acquired by mixing the bloodline of the scorpion woman, the Son of Sun, the Single-Eyed Giant, and the bones he found from the remaining of the strong beings.
It was the sign that represented his true form.
“Free yourself… Free yourself…!”
There was a strange voice in Angele’s mind that somehow triggered his general instinct. It was a feeling like hunger.
It felt like he should free himself from the struggle.
Countless blue souls merged into the large shadow of the scorpion; however, it was the same as adding water into an endless hole.
Minutes later, he felt that he lost all his strength.
The four beads vanished into the voice and disappeared. The large scorpion shadow bit the smoking eyeball and swallowed it before disappearing into the air.
The white smoke also disappeared from Angele’s face slowly; the color of his eyes returned, but his eyeballs looked like two pure rubies that were as deep as the universe.
The woman in black could barely move under the strong pressure; she could finally move again after the scorpion shadow disappeared. She looked at Angele but almost fainted after staring into his eyes.
“Ah, sorry. I’m still trying to get used to it.” Angele blinked his eyes and the strange power disappeared. He handed the red notebook to the woman.
“Thanks for your help, this is a gift.”
The woman in black slowly recovered and grabbed the notebook, but she decided not to look Angele in the eyes anymore.
Angele was not sure what happened.
He followed the instruction of the modified Book of Fear and tried to create his refined true form. Angele thought that he would fail since he needed one more bead, but the realm power of the Nightmare Realm helped him. The realm power gathered the strong souls of this realm and sent them into Angele’s true form.
Angele almost successfully created his refined true form with the sign created by all those bloodlines. The only thing he needed was the bead of terror and he would be able to recreate the refined true form.
The realm power was endless and Angele felt like he could utilize the power if he wanted. He noticed that his true form was different from Eye Devil’s true form. He was blessed by the realm and there was no limitation to his power.
Also, he overheard the conversation of the two white robes.
‘So that’s how it feels like to be a Dread Lord.’
Angele stepped forward and a translucent staircase was created under his feet. The stairs led him straight to Eye Devil’s waist.
“Congratulations, Phoenix, you finally recovered your refined true form,” Eye Devil spoke.
“I still need a bit more time to recreate my core, but I’m almost there.” Angele smiled. He was not sure how strong he had become, but he was certain that he had passed rank 6.
He looked at Eye Devil’s body and could feel that his refined true form had the similar power level as Eye Devil.
Eye Devil was just slightly stronger than him.
Angele knew that the biochip helped him a lot. He purified the ancient bloodline using the chip and his progression was much faster than others’. There was one disadvantage—Angele’s power level was increasing so fast that he had no time to learn to control his new power.
‘An unknown power is trying to modify the biochip. Do you want to absorb the power? The success rate is 12.54%.’ Zero’s voice suddenly echoed in his ears.
‘Modify the biochip? Why is the success rate so low?’ Angele was a bit surprised. ‘Yes, absorb the power.’
Angele looked at Eye Devil after giving the order.
Eye Devil started talking again.
“The core should not be a problem. You already recovered the refined true form, right?” She emphasized on “refined true form” for some reason.
“Yeah, will this change anything between us?” Angele was interested, he looked at Eye Devil. His power level was very close to Eye Devil and they were speaking at the same level. Angele felt like he had become one of the lords; however, he had the ability to utilize the realm power.
The eyeball at her waist turned to Angele and stared at him.
“You were always lying. I finally saw the truth when you tried to recover your refined true form.” She stopped for a second and continued, “However, no matter how strong you are and who you are, you’re already a member of the southland, right?”
“You’re right…” Angele recalled the warm and gentle feeling. He knew that the Nightmare Realm had accepted him. The strong bloodlines of the Nightmare Realm eliminated the weak bloodlines of the wizard world and that was the reason why he became a member of the realm.
“We should reintroduce ourselves.” Eye Devil chuckled. “I’m the leader of the eye race, Riva Prato.”
“I’m Phoenix, Angele Fenrir Rio.” Angele thought Eye Devil would try and kill him but it seemed like that would not happen.
The white robes were confused but they did not say anything.
“Lords, if you’ll excuse us, we have to leave now.” The old man bowed to Eye Devil and Angele.
“Let us know when the abyss is ready. You won’t disappoint me, right?” Eye Devil looked at the two white robes.
“We’ll try.” The white robes bowed again, stepped back, and turned into two ice statues.
The two ice statues broke into pieces after the noise. The ice pieces melted and evaporated quickly.
Angele lowered his eyes. “I have something else to take care of and I’ll leave the core here. I will absorb some of those souls if you don’t mind.”
“For sure. You brought me so many souls. Take as many as you want.” Eye Devil chuckled again. However, the crisp female voice was coming from a large eyeball and it was a bit weird.
Angele smiled and nodded. He pressed on the center of his chest and disappeared into a ball of flames.
