“What if they decide to eliminate the Elemental Hand before setting up an ambush to surprise us?”
“Well, that’s possible too…” Viss hesitated.
The soldiers sent by Prince Evil Dragon were not really trying to help Angele. Viss analyzed the situation and tried to convince Angele to solve the problem using an indirect approach. The main force of the Dark Wizard Tower would focus on the army of the Elemental Hand so they did not have to fight the Dark Wizard Tower by themselves.
Angele was not a member of the alliance, after all.
Angele glanced at the three vortexes and sneered.
“Get ready, we’ll be leaving soon! We have no time to waste!”
“Yes.” The three realized that Angele already knew what they were planning and gave up. The dark vortexes shrank and disappeared.
Angele turned around and looked at the scene on the plain.
‘I need to prepare something else since they are not reliable.’
The three signs were prepared and would be activated if Angele had enough souls. Also, the souls did not have to be collected by the signs themselves.
Angele was Lord of Terror and he had the ability to absorb the souls as well. He could absorb the souls first and transfer them to the signs.
‘The problem is… I need to make sure the wizards don’t know that I’m collecting the souls…’ Angele was having a headache.
There were many wizards studying the soul forms in the wizard world and there were also wizards who turned themselves into soul forms. If he collected the souls too fast, he would be noticed, and there would be a big problem.
Also, Angele needed to make sure that the ritual was not interrupted. When the shadows of the lords teleported to the main world, they needed to help him expand the dimension tunnel. The shadows were relatively weak due to the realm power and they needed to travel through the dimension tunnel with their true forms.
It would take them some time to complete the procedure because the Nightmare Realm needed to move closer to the wizard world.
The signs had to be hidden or everything would go down the drain.
Angele reconsidered the plan and took a deep breath.
Two days later. The Innova Mountains.
The sky was dark and pale, there was no sunlight at all.
In a valley in the mountains, there was a white town in the center and people would have to travel through it to pass the area. The left side of the valley was higher than the right side and looked like a large cliff.
The Innova City was built on the cliff and some of the buildings were inside the mountain wall. The city looked like it was built on a dam.
There were two men with eyepatches standing on the left side of the city, they were wearing black robes and their hair was white.
One of them had an eyepatch on the left eye and the other had it on the right eye. They were staring at the people that were moving to the city.
“How many people are moved to the city?” the man with the eyepatch on his left eye asked.
“About 6000. This is just the first group. The world altar needs the energy to summon the War Eagle Legion. Brother, has the leader contacted us?” the man with the eyepatch on his right eye responded.
“No, we just need to make sure there’s no enemy in the area. Go release the butterflies that were sent here not so long ago.”
The man with the eyepatch on his right eye tapped on his finger and chanted some incantation.
Seconds later, some green mist appeared above the sky. The mist was formed by countless green butterflies that were spreading to all angles.
The two watched the butterflies moving to the side and hide in different areas.
“Alright, we just need to wait for the ambush, I hope everything is going well.”
“We’ll take care of the rest if they fail.” The younger one chuckled.
“We need to proceed with caution.”
On the far side of Innova City. There was a small forest created by pine trees on a hill.
There was a large white stone in the forest and a man stepped out of the shadow under the trees.
The sunlight penetrated the dark clouds in the sky and one of the rays landed on the one who just stepped out of the shadow.
Rays of sunlight were moving as the dark clouds moved.
The sunlight illuminated the man’s body and it almost looked like the man was glowing under the shadow.
Angele was wearing a tight hunter’s suit. He stepped on the stone and looked down. He noticed that there were visible energy waves behind him.
“This city was turned into a military base…” Angele muttered.
“Master, we probably should…” A voice came from the behind.
Angele remained calm and narrowed his eyes.
A butterfly with green wings flew to him. The butterfly kept swinging its wings, and its translucent wings looked like fragile petals.
Raising his hand, Angele released some energy particles. The butterfly landed on his finger and slowly stopped swinging its wings.
“They know we’re here…” Angele sneered and held the butterfly in hand. He gripped and turned the butterfly into a pile of green dust, disappearing into the wind.
“There’s no point to hide, then.”
He waved his hand and a team of soldiers that were wearing the same hunter’s suit appeared. The soldiers passed by Angele and rushed to the city.
Angele stepped forward, followed by three balls of black smoke. He overlooked the valley and saw the two black robes on the other side of the city.
Angele disappeared into a ball of flames along with the smoke balls.
Suddenly, the two black robes’ expressions changed.
“Go! Inform the leader!” The man with the eyepatch on the left eye waved his hand and released pieces of broken stones. The stone pieces turned into a small bird and flew into the air.
The bird turned into a pile of black smoke and disappeared after it flew for a while.
The eyepatch brothers had no time to think, they opened their pouches at the same time.
They released some green dust, which surrounded their bodies as they started chanting the incantation.
Angele and the three smoke balls appeared in front of the green dust.
One of the smoke balls chuckled and aimed at the eyepatch brothers using his hands.
A strong invisible force pressured the green dust and turned it into a vase-shaped object.
“Master, you were right. They decided to eliminate the Elemental Hand first so we headed to your location immediately.” Vass sneered. “Let’s finish them off first and then we can go deal with the other enemies.”
The green dust vase exploded and the eyepatch brothers were escaping in opposite side.
“Die!” Viss released two black strings that were flying to the eyepatch brothers.
The black strings contacted the brothers’ bodies and green light dots splashed in the air.
It sounded like eggs being cracked.
The brothers groaned and blocked the strings using energy barriers.
Viss was a bit surprised. “Go! They’re both rank 4 wizards!”
Three smoke balls charged to the brothers at the same time.
Angele was not interested in the fight, he was observing the situation of the city. It seemed like the city had turned into a battlefield.
Groups black shadows rushed into the city and they were fighting the soldiers in black armor that were defending the city. They were all wearing black and Angele almost failed to figure out who they were fighting for.
Angele pointed forward and dropped a lot of fireballs on the ground, the fireballs quickly turned into 20 lion men.
Five of the lion men were stronger than the others, they had the same power level as rank 1 wizards.
“Go!” Angele pointed at Innova City.
The 20 lion men were surrounded by dark flames after an explosion. They swung their wings and flew to the city. The negative emotions in the air turned into black smoke, which was absorbed by the lion men.
The 20 lion men lined up and joined the battlefield. They looked like two red lines that were swimming in a dark pool.
Angele watched the battlefield quietly; people were screaming and roaring. The noise mixed together and echoed in his ears. Red and green light balls were flashing in the town.
Suddenly, a vibrating noise came from Angele’s body slowly.
The sign of scorpion appeared between his brow and his whole body was coated with a red glow. It felt like the light was released by his body.
The vibration noise sounded like it was made by a snake.
Angele could sense the familiar power inside his body; it was trying to block the realm power of the wizard world for him.
“Power of the nightmare…” He recognized the power.
“Nightmare Realm is moving closer to the wizard world.”
Angele slowly closed his eyes, he could feel that the power restriction was weakened. His attributes were slowly increasing and his energy waves had the same power as the ones released by rank 4 wizards.
“My plan was perfect.” Angele smiled. “I gave them the coordinates before I left Nightmare Realm and it was about time that they started moving.”
With the coordinates, the lords would be able to build a special building after collecting the required resources and Nightmare Realm would be pulled to the coordinates at a faster rate.
