In the ancient city.
In the spacious stone chamber, there was an egg-shaped red vortex floating over the altar.
On the runes of the red altar, there were some smaller complicated runes. Those runes were also red, surrounded by intense red light.
Angele stood by the runes quietly; the skin he removed from his arm was still in his hand. There were five red glowing runes on the pattern and his body was surrounded by black smoke, however, he was the only one that could see it.
The red vortex above the altar solidified. The color of the light turned from red to blue.
It sounded like something exploded on the ground and the ceiling of the chamber was shaking.
Raising his head, Angele looked at the ceiling and glanced around. It seemed like he was waiting for something.
“Green! Are you crazy?!” Suman and his team members arrived at the chamber. They saw Angele standing by the altar with a blank expression on his face, however, it seemed like Angele had no intention to destroy the altar.
Suman, Bella, and Messiah eliminated the snake giant. They saw stopped the others from charging at Angele.
“Calm down. We need to stay away from Green before we can figure out what his plan is.”
Messiah stabbed his dagger into the wall on the right. “What is this guy trying to do?!”
The other members looked at Mincola as they knew that Mincola was a friend of Angele.
“Don’t look at me… I don’t even… Wait! Green! Don’t!” Mincola noticed that Angele was reaching to the red vortex before he finished speaking.
“Don’t touch the core! This guy is transferring energy to the world altar! Damn!” Suman realized what Angele was trying to do.
He had no time to think, he shouted and charged at the other snake giant who was trying to recover. They needed to eliminate the snake giant who was blocking their way as soon as possible.
“Don’t worry.” Angele looked at Suman. “I’m not summoning the Dream Lord. The energy I sent to the altar is impure and this branch will be destroyed when the summoning is about to complete.”
Energy waves were released by the vortex as Angele finished these words. It seemed like the vortex was getting unstable.
“Human beings…!” The snake men realized that Angele was not helping them so they charged to Angele at full speed, but they were stopped by several armored wizards.
“Green, I knew you wouldn’t betray us!” Mincola was happy.
Suman caught the chance and hit a snake man in the neck. A large wound appeared on the snake man’s neck. He did a backflip in the air and jumped at Angele.
“Hurry, green! The elites of the Dark Wizard will come for us when they receive the message!” He was several meters away from Angele, Suman decided to guard Angele using his scimitar.
“No worries. It’s almost over.” Angele remained calm, his palm surrounded by intense red light. He reached into the vortex and grabbed the core tightly.
The core was a blue diamond-shaped crystal the length of a palm.
The people in the chamber could feel that the altar was about to collapse. People were not sure what he was doing. However, most of them knew that the altar was about to be destroyed and the snake men were no longer treating him like an ally.
They realized that Angele might be working for the alliance.
“Done yet?” Suman stepped forward, but he noticed that something was off. The lion men prevented him from moving closer to Angele.
“Green?” He was confused.
Finally, the vortex exploded and turned into countless blue energy waves.
A diamond-shaped crystal appeared in Angele’s hand.
Becky was standing behind Angele, glaring at the crystal.
“This is just one branch, there are four more branches and a main altar. The summoning is probably completed. This is the only altar that the alliance destroyed.”
No one heard Becky’s words, but they all heard the noise that sounded like it was made by a pumping heart.
Again, the same noise and the noise was getting louder.
Several seconds later, they heard someone singing in the air, and it felt like the voice was coming from the far side. The loud voice was echoing in everyone’s ears.
Someone sighed with mixed emotions, but no one heard it since the singing voice was too loud.
A ray of blue light struck into the air from the altar; it penetrated the rocks and the mud, and connected the altar to the sky.
*CHI CHI CHI CHI*
The same noise repeated four times. The creatures on the highland all raised their hands, staring at the five blue rays that drove the dark clouds away.
The five blue rays formed a pentagram and surrounded the main altar.
The snowflakes were spinning in the white vortexes that were created by the blue rays.
The snow on the ground was soaked in blood. The soldiers at the frontline were still fighting, but the legions all stopped and looked at the sky.
The earth started shaking.
Five blue rays all came from the altars and five long fissures appeared on the ground. Five blue runes appeared in the fissures.
The blue petals on the main altar already turned red.
Duke Mystery had not won the fight yet, but he smiled.
“It’s over… Everything is over! The Dream Lord is summoned!”
The other two legion commanders were severely injured. One of them was lying on the ground and the other one was sealed in a blue ice pillar.
The claws of the golden bird were cut off and there was a golden wound on its stomach. There were countless small smoke snakes attacking the wound.
Prince Evil Dragon swung his wings several times; he looked a bit helpless.
“Prepare to retreat!” His high-pitched voice echoed over the whole battlefield.
Two golden shadows were released from his feathers.
“I thought they would fail. We activated the merging technique, but we were too slow,” one of the golden shadows said. It was the Mirror Lord and the Sky Lord. For some reason, they became one with Prince Evil Dragon, and their power level increased temporarily due to that.
“We have to use our final resort to handle the situation.” Prince Evil Dragon made the decision. “Retreat, everyone, follow our plan!” he ordered.
On the highland, the soldiers in white armor started retreating in groups. The soldiers of the Dark Wizard Tower did not go after them, they slowly moved back and regrouped.
The soldiers retreated quickly with the help of spells. Prince Evil Dragon and the other captains also returned to the highland. They quickly disappeared into the horizon with the soldiers.
A blurry red shadow slowly appeared in the center of the pentagram formed by the rays.
It was an enormous red dragon that was around 600 meters tall.
It almost looked like the dragon was about to fly into the sky. The dragon remained quiet; it looked like a ruby statue.
The dragon’s body was solidifying slowly, and gentle red light appeared in the dragon’s eyes.
The song in the air was getting louder and louder. The dragon moved; its mouth opened, but the dragon had no teeth and its tongue looked identical to the tongue of a snake.
The dragon’s invisible force field was so strong that the land around the dragon all cracked and a large hole appeared under the dragon’s body.
Duke Mystery sighed with relief, he looked at the red dragon with excitement written all over his face.
“The Dark Wizard Tower will end the war for the two realms… This is our destiny!”
He felt much better as he watched Prince Evil Dragon retreat with his crew. Mystery slowly took out a silver box from his mirror.
The box opened, revealing a spinning red energy vortex.
“How’s the situation?” Mystery asked in a low voice.
“Duke, everything is going well. The summoning ritual is still ongoing and we’re about to enter the second phase.” An old woman’s voice came from the box.
“Second phase, huh? That’s great…” Duke raised his head. “Watch out for the traps around the ancient city.”
“Don’t worry, Duke, we’re fully prepared,” the old woman responded in a deep voice.
Duke Mystery knew that he had succeeded. He watched the clouds disappear from the sky; the golden sunlight was blocked by red runes. The sunlight went through the red runes and it almost looked the whole sky was releasing red light.
“Is this part of the ritual?” For some reason, Mystery felt uncomfortable as the red light landed on his body.
“What do you mean?” The old woman sounded surprised.
“The sun is blocked by some red runes and it’s releasing red light.” Duke’s brow furrowed. “I don’t like the red light.”
“Red light? Are you sure? I’m certain that this is not a part of the ritual. We’re not blocking the sun with runes…” the old woman quickly responded.
“Are you sure about that?” Duke’s expression changed.
Mystery’s expression changed.
“What are those runes…” He wanted to ask something else, but he was interrupted by some loud noise.
It sounded like a piece of cloth being torn apart.
A fissure appeared in the sky.
“Run! Keep running!” Victoria was laughing like he was crazy.
Turin’s body was covered with wounds and his blood was being absorbed by Victoria.
The dark beasts separated into three teams and kept attacking Turin from different angles. Their attacks made by the claws were empowered by the dark energy.
Turin’s body was much stronger than an average rank 4 wizard’s, but he was still severely injured.
He could easily kill those dark beasts, but he was so tired that he had could not fight against the beasts and Victoria at the same time.
Turin leaned to the right and dodged a claw, however, his shoulders were attacked again. Part of his muscles was torn apart.
Turin groaned and quickly leaped away. Silver runes appeared on the bodies of the beasts around him.
Red electric pulses appeared on the beasts’ bodies. They trembled and fell to the ground within seconds.
Turin sighed with relief and his pupils retracted. His body suddenly numbed and he could no longer move.
Red blood spurted out of his wounds and floated in the air. Victoria recreated his body using Turin’s blood.
“Farewell, Turin…” Victoria tried to stab Turin’s heart using his fingers that were sharp like needles.
A loud noise echoed in the sky.
A strong force field appeared and everything within it stopped moving.
Victoria’s fingers stopped right in front of Turin’s chest, but he could no longer move. The force field was so strong that he was having trouble breathing.
