Angele’s sight blurred after he recreated his shadow.
“Are you alright? This area is also blocked and you’ll need some time before you can get used to the shadow teleportation.” A male voice came from the front.
Angele shook his head and raised his head. Everything in his sight was ghosting.
A middle-aged man in a gray robe was standing in front of him. The man’s face was yellow and he was staring at Angele; however, in Angele’s sight, it looked like the man had two heads.
The voice also sounded like it was from the far side.
“I’m fine. I’ll get used to it soon. My body structure was slightly unstable,” Angele responded in a low voice.
The man with two heads nodded. “Alright… I’ll… You can… I…”
The man’s voice could barely be interpreted due to the communication block.
“Sure, go ahead,” Angele responded after guessing what the man said.
‘I hate the communication block. I’ll never send my shadow form to areas like this again…’ He shook his head again but his sight was still blurred.
The man bowed to Angele, turned around, and left the forest.
After about half an hour, Angele finally stabilized his shadow form with the help of the biochip. However, his shadow was weakened again, and his mentality level was the same as a rank 3 apprentice.
Angele stepped out of the forest and stopped by a wide river. There was a small island in the center of the river, covered with red buildings.
The buildings all had round ceilings that were covered with stripes. They looked like buildings with umbrellas on the top; there was yellow light coming out of the windows.
Most of the buildings were red, some were yellow, and the rest was gray. There were children running around on the narrow paths between the buildings.
Several old wizards were playing chess by the river, all wearing long white robes.
Angele walked to the river and glanced around. There was a small forest on the right side and there was a stone staircase on the left.
He walked to the stone staircase and the scene behind the river was revealed as he changed his position.
On the other side of the river, a large building that looked like a tent caught his eyes.
The tent was painted red, yellow, and gray. There was a window that looked like a fan on the surface of the tent which looked like a religious symbol. The engravings on the window were complicated and mysterious.
The window was connected to a large door and there were two yellow torches on both sides of the door.
The man that left the forest first appeared and explained, “That’s the Anfaria Wizard High Council. The wizard lords and the representatives from different areas used to have meetings there.”
“Please follow me, Master. Master Alice is in charge of your application, but she’s having a meeting right now.”
“Where’s the general supervisor? I thought the city controlled by the Shadow Lord had already become one of our bases.” Angele’s brow furrowed.
“The high council is still here and we won’t tell the public that we have already taken control of the city. Also, Master Alice is now the Shadow Lord.”
They talked to each other through energy particles.
Angele nodded and looked at the enormous building.
“I heard the wizard lords all have their own councils and they take turns to hold the meetings. I wonder if I’ll be able to see the other councils.”
“Soon you will.” The man smiled and stopped talking. He turned around and started walking.
Angele smiled as well and followed after the man.
He felt like he was treated differently after the war started.
Angele could only use the ring to contact Turin and Lela who were still working for him. He could no longer contact the important members of the organization, including Victoria, it seemed like he decided to serve someone else. Also, his clearance level for the intel center was lowered.
Turin was still talking to him politely and Lela’s attitude never changed, but Angele was not sure what they were planning.
He followed the man upstairs and arrived at a street by the river. The street was empty, only a team of guards in red armor was patrolling the area and their footsteps were extremely loud.
“This way please.” The man entered a small path and stopped by a tiny side door.
“Please enter the door. I’ll be waiting outside.” The man had a blank expression on the face, however, Angele noticed that the man was anxious.
Angele nodded but did not say anything else. He pushed the wooden door open.
The red wooden door opened slowly.
Inside, it was a dark room. There was a lighted candle on the table by the corner. The flame shook slightly as the door opened.
“This is Purple Eye. I’m sorry to interrupt you, Master Alice,” Angele spoke in a low voice.
The room was silent and no one responded.
Angele’s brow furrowed and he decided to repeat the sentence.
However, no one responded. He waited several minutes and decided to repeat the sentence again.
“This is Purple Eye, I’m sorry to—”
“You’re from Tarry River, right? Do you like my bear?” A girl’s voice came from the other corner of the room and stopped Angele from finishing his sentence.
Angele finally noticed that there was another table in a dark corner and a wooden puppet was standing by the table. It seemed like he was interrupted by a special force field so he failed to detect the puppet.
The wooden puppet was wearing a white dress and it was doing something on the table.
Strangely, the wooden puppet had no head and was about one meter tall.
Angele glanced at the table.
The headless wooden puppet was cutting its own head.
The puppet cut the skin open and removed the top of the skull. The head looked just like a head of a human and Angele could see the brain. The blood that dripped down the table stank.
The puppet hand was complicated and beautiful. The puppet was slowly ripping the white brain apart.
“Bear?” Angele wondered. “You mean Brandy?”
The wooden puppet stopped moving and grabbed the puppet head. The eyes of the head were facing Angele. The puppet head looked just like a girl’s head.
Clean skin, long blonde hair, and clear blue eyes. The eyes were still blinking. If the head wasn’t soaked in blood, the scene would be much better.
“So, you’ve already seen my bear. Why are you here then? As you can see, I’m busy. If you have any request, you’ll have to do me a favor first.”
“I just want to ask you a question. How will you handle the Elemental Hand? That’s the organization that I’m working for,” Angele questioned.
“Hmm…” The wooden puppet held its head in hand and started stirring the brain. “Let me think…”
The noise made by the brain that was being stirred was a bit disturbing.
“Huh… You don’t need to worry about it. You signed the contract and the organization will not break the promise,” Alice responded after she thought for a while. “Alright, now I’ve answered your question. You need to do me a favor.”
Angele narrowed his eyes and was about to say something else.
“Bill,” Alice suddenly shouted.
Angele’s head ached. His sight blurred and his body was pushed away by something. He lost his consciousness right away.
“Well, I thought the shadow form has a brain too… Boring…” Alice’s voice echoed in Angele’s ears before the shadow form was destroyed.
Angele sighed deeply as he opened his eyes. He looked at the purple ring and he had mixed emotions about the situation.
Based on Alice’s attitude, he realized that the organization was no longer treating him as an important member after they executed their plan. He knew this day would come, but he did not expect it to be so fast.
The Dark Wizard Tower was dodging his questions and the elites were only working for him because of the contracts they signed.
‘I need to check the situation constantly. If the situation gets worse, I’ll have to… My core is almost completed anyway.’ Angele slowly stood up and rubbed the surface of the ring.
‘Let me check what I have first, maybe there’s something I need.’ Angele stood in the stone chamber and closed his eyes. He started thinking and analyzing.
Angele checked his mentality using the biochip and the total number had reached over three hundred thousand. However, all the mentality was from the negative emotions and he could not utilize it yet. He was focusing on three cores; however, he would still be weaker than the lords in the Nightmare Realm even with the cores.
The mentality crystals were created by the mentality and three different talent spells were engraved on them. They were the most important cores to Angele.
The three dark-red cores were rotating slowly in the mentality created by the negative emotions. That was the reason why the main world applied so much pressure on Angele.
If he could absorb all the mentality, the realm power would not be able to weaken him too much, and he could reach rank 5 or 6. That would also be Eye Devil’s rank if she entered this world.
However, the resistance would be much stronger when he tried to enter the main world if he had a high power level.
The three diamond-shaped mentality crystals were releasing some red light. A tiny white lion was sleeping in the light, and a small golden phoenix was rotating around the lion like a satellite.
‘How can I apply the negative emotions to my talent ability or create a new mentality core?
‘Zero, check if I can create a rank 4 wizard’s mentality crystal.’
‘Task created… Analysis started…’
