People who helped in the plan would be buffed and protected by the power of nightmare. Angele would acquire more and more power of nightmare as the two realms got closer and his true power would recover gradually. He would be able to acquire the power of the refined true form after the two realms connected.
Angele was accepted by the Nightmare Realm and that was how he received the power of nightmare through the dimension channel.
The red light around Angele’s body was getting intense. The strong power of nightmare was the source of the red light and the light brightened up the area around him.
The ground turned red, the green grass withered, and insects were burnt black under the intense red light.
A sulfurous smell permeated the air and the temperature was raising.
The power was out of Angele’s control.
‘Power of nightmare is the like an endless pollution. The power will become stronger if the world is a chaos. However, I didn’t expect it to create a heat aura around my body.’
His brow furrowed, he hated that he could not control his own power.
The heat aura was out of control, it was the physical display of the power from the Nightmare Realm.
He stepped forward and the grass in the front turned in to ashes.
Viss and the other two finished the job, they brought back the fainted eyepatch brothers.
“Master?” Viss was a bit confused as he saw Angele.
The red aura was similar to the high temperature field. The aura was effective on normal creatures, however, it would not do anything to strong living beings.
“Throw them to me,” Angele muttered.
Viss’s body was a bit blurry in the black smoke. He grabbed the two fainted wizards and threw them to Angele.
The eyepatch brothers were illuminated by the red light.
“Ah…!” The two wizards were groaning in pain.
Blisters appeared on the surface of their bodies. Their skin that was exposed to the air was covered with blisters and sticky yellow liquid spurted out of their eyes. Their eyeballs were burnt and that was where the liquid came from.
White steam rose from the two wizards’ bodies as their skin started drying. They were struggling on the ground as water left their bodies.
Angele walked to the two dying wizards and stabbed their skulls using hair. The hair pulled two red souls out of their body and quickly absorbed them.
Viss could not see the souls, he watched the two wizards turn into two burnt bodies, but he remained silent during the process.
The eyepatch brothers were killed by the aura easily.
The two dead bodies were ignited and they were turned into two piles of ashes.
“The aura…” Viss was terrified.
“I’m just testing its power. The aura will only be effective when the target loses his ability to fight,” Angele explained with a smile on the face. “It seems like you’re injured.”
The three smoke balls did not respond.
“Were they strong?” Angele questioned in a calm tone.
“Master, their power exceeded our expectations. I suggest that we retreat immediately. Their main force set up an ambush in the area and it’s nearly impossible for us to stop them,” Freylin said in a deep tone. He was severely injured and the smoke surrounding his body turned gray.
“Don’t worry…” Angele remained calm. His power level was increasing gradually as the Nightmare Realm approached the wizard world. His power level was already higher than the power level of an average rank 4 wizard so there was no point for him to hide.
Also, the more people died, the faster he would be able to collect the souls, and Angele had to collect the souls by himself.
“Master, we’re here to assist you, but we’ll not sacrifice our lives for you,” Viss advised. “Prince Evil Dragon won’t blame us if we decide to leave you behind.”
“I understand.” Angele chuckled. “The enemy’s main force probably already detected us and they’ll come for us. They are not far from here, if you don’t want to be backstabbed on the way, you can just leave now.”
“We’re the shadow force and we know how to stay undetected,” Viss responded in a calm tone.
“Go ahead then.” Angele was not concerned.
The battle in the city almost ended, two red strings returned to Angele and turned into 12 lion men.
They were all injured, some of them lost their arms during the battle and were still recovering.
Two of the lion men already had the power level of a rank 3 wizard and the rest of them had the same power level as a rank 2 or rank 1 wizard. It seemed like they absorbed a decent amount of souls and negative emotions on the battlefield.
The lion men’s power level would increase as they fought. Every time they absorbed negative emotions or souls, they would be strengthened; however, they would never be stronger than Angele.
The highest power level the lion men could reach was the same as a rank 4 wizard. Their attack power and defense power would be around 1000 degrees which were the same as Angele. This power level was not calculated using Angele’s true form or refined true form.
If the lion men could reach rank 4, they would be good enough for the wizard world.
Each of the lion men was around two meters tall but they were over three meters tall after being strengthened. The two rank 3 lion men were over four meters tall.
Viss was surprised after seeing those lion men.
“Alright, Master, it seems like you already have your plan, so…” Viss recalled the words Prince Evil Dragon told him.
“…So, we decided to follow you and assist you”
Angele hesitated for a second and smiled. “Thanks, I’ll remember that.”
Suddenly, he looked at the far side of the valley as he detected a strong energy wave coming to him.
“Our friends are here.”
Angele stepped forward, raised his right hand, and grasped at the air.
A large piece of white stone mixed with mud and turned into a large stone bow that was over six meters long and one meter wide. Angele held the stone bow in hand carefully.
The bow looked like a large tower shield.
“First, let me send them a welcome gift…”
Angele pulled the bow using the left hand.
The bowstring was formed by his long red hair and was fully drawn.
A loud noise was coming from the ground.
Broken pieces of stones floated in the air, they mixed with mud and turned into an enormous gray arrow on the bow.
Countless red dots left Angele’s body and sank into the arrow. The whole arrow was coated by a red glow and it turned translucent.
Angele pursed his lips into a smile and blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
The arrow drew a red string in the air and disappeared. Countless dark red dots covered the sky after several seconds.
Somewhere in a valley in the Innova Mountains.
A team of soldiers in white armor was rushing to the deep valley. The leader was a woman in white armor and there was a shadow plate rotating behind her. The woman was surrounded by strong invisible energy waves.
“Hurry! Move!” the captains behind the woman shouted.
There were more than three hundred soldiers on the team and some of them were in charge of the cannons.
The woman had a blank expression on the face.
“How long until we can reach the Innova City?”
“One glass hour!” the middle-aged man behind her responded.
The woman glanced at her team. She was the only one that was not sweating, the other soldiers were all tired. Their hair was soaked in sweat.
“We need to have some rest here. The team is exhausted!” the man advised.
“We have no time to waste. Ask the soldiers to drink the potions,” the woman responded in a cold tone, “and keep moving!”
The man was a bit speechless, he asked the messenger to inform the soldiers.
The soldiers took out some pink potions and quickly drank them all.
“Keep moving!” the messenger shouted.
The team kept advancing in the valley.
The woman’s expression suddenly changed after they advanced for a while.
“Wait!” she shouted and flew into the air. “Prepare for a strike!”
Raising her head, the woman looked at the sky.
A red dot appeared in the gray sky. Seconds later, the second and the third red dots also appeared.
The sky was covered with countless dark-red dots in the blink of the eye.
The woman quickly grabbed a greatsword from the shadow plate.
The greatsword blocked an arrow.
*CHI CHI CHI*
The endless rain of red arrows started dropping one after another.
The soldiers were groaning after the arrows landed, the energy barriers they put up were easily destroyed like sheets of paper. Each arrow could deal a lot of damage, only the rank 2 wizards could block the arrows. However, none of them could cast strong defensive spells, including the woman.
“Damn! This energy wave…” The woman narrowed her eyes.
“How familiar! It’s that guy!”
