The heavy snow was blowing hard and the snowflakes looked like bloody shards.
The snowflakes had the size of nails and were flying over the hills, passing through the valleys. Several pieces of snowflakes landed on the palm of an old man who was standing on a cliff over the forest.
The snowflakes melted and turned into red liquid. The liquid was corroding his skin and there was white smoke rising into the air.
The old man clenched and lowered his fist.
The old man was wearing a long robe and there were wrinkles all over his face. The man’s long white beard was flying in the air.
He stood on the cliff and overlooked the dark fissure in the sky above Rayton Highland. The giant in the fissure was trying to widen the fissure and the were countless flying monsters that looked like flies coming out of the fissure.
There was a large cloud vortex spinning in the sky and the sunlight was coming through the gaps in the clouds, illuminating everything on the ground.
The voice was still singing in the sky; it sounded like a group of people that varied in gender.
The old man held a cane in his hand and looked at the scene quietly.
“The nightmare… is here…” He took out a translucent gray pendant from his sleeve; there was a fist-sized gray crystal orb in the center of the pendant. The orb was filled up with complicated gears.
There was no incantation or energy wave. The gear inside the gray crystal orb started spinning slowly in the sunlight. It felt like the sun activated a small machine.
“The change has started… Nothing is predictable right now…”
The old man lowered the pendant, turned around, and his body started melting along with his outfit. The old man turned into a wolf with a horn that was over three meters tall.
The wolf roared and charged into the heavy red snow.
In the dimension fissure between the wizard world and the fairy realm.
There was a spacious golden hall in the center of the humongous tree.
The chandelier on the ceiling was releasing gentle yellow light. The walls were illuminated by the light from the chandelier and the lamps.
Nobles wearing black outfits with golden edges were dancing to a slow and gentle music.
There were people playing harps, bagpipes, and balalaikas.
It almost looked like the nobles were coated with yellow glints.
On the other side of the hall, nobles were drinking wine while talking about the situation on the front line. Those nobles were wearing suits that looked like military outfits.
“Quiet, everyone, quiet. Please spare me some time.” A man in a white suit walked to the band and clapped his hands. There were rows of badges that varied in sizes on the right side of his chest. The man stood straight and looked like a soldier.
The music slowly faded and the man spoke. The nobles stopped dancing and looked at him with smiles on their faces.
“Bossier, you again? I’m having fun right now, can’t you find a better timing to do this?”
Someone from the crowd sounded unhappy. “How are you going to compensate me?”
“Alright, alright… After this is over, I’ll invite you to my private party. Well, it’ll be even better if the ladies can join us.” Bossier blinked his eyes.
“Fine…” The nobles chuckled and stopped complaining.
“Alright, let’s get to the point.”
With a flick of his finger, Bossier released some purple light waves.
The waves turned into a purple bud and it slowly blossomed. The color was clean and attractive.
“Mystery the Purple Duke has sent another message to us even though he was busy at the front line. It seems like our victory is near and he wants to have some fun with one of the ladies.” Bossier smiled and grabbed the purple bud. “Let’s see what he wants to tell us.”
The nobles chuckled again.
“Master Bossier, if you were the on the battlefield, you’d be even more impatient, right?” someone spoke in a loud voice.
“It must be some good news from the battlefield. Duke probably has already eliminated the main force of the alliance,” a young lady spoke in a cute voice.
Bossier waved his hands and looked at the crowd. “Let’s go to the balcony and read the letter together. I think I should share the happiness with everyone.”
“With pleasure.” The nobles raised their wine glasses. “For the empire!”
The nobles sipped from the wine glasses and shouted, “For the empire!”
The fragrance of wine permeated the hall and maids quickly refilled the glasses for the nobles.
Bossier walked to the balcony on the right side of the balcony. He was holding the purple bud in hand and the rest of the nobles followed him.
They talked and laughed as they gathered on the balcony made of white jade stones.
The balcony was built inside the tree and the white jade stone was surrounded by some dark green vines. The balcony was luxurious and vibrant.
Bossier walked to the railings and threw the purple bud into the air.
The purple bud flew into the air; it was quite eye-catching under the dark clouds. The bud was translucent and the purple color was quite attractive.
The purple bud broke as if it was made of glass and exploded in the air, turning into purple mist.
The purple mist slowly turned into a large purple mirror, images flashing within.
“Wait…?” The smile froze on Bossier’s face.
The red light from the mirror illuminated the nobles.
They could hear the strange song.
There were countless people singing, their voices distant.
The red light was from the blood sun in the mirror. The dark clouds were moving past the sun and turned into a large vortex.
A large dimension fissure was hiding behind the clouds and it looked like a crack on a sheet of paper.
A golden giant was trying to climb out of the fissure.
The nobles on the balcony were all surprised.
Someone’s wine glass dropped to the ground and broke into pieces.
Bossier finally realized what happened.
“The night… It’s a sealed form from Nightmare Realm! Prepare to seal the dimension tunnel! Now! We need to retreat from the dimension fissure as soon as possible and seal the tunnel!” Bossier shouted like crazy and he loosened his tie.
“Luke, send my order. Open the beast cage and release the…”
“Inform the departments use the crystal orbs, now!”
“Get ready, everyone! The danger level is five! Deliver my messages! Now!”
The commanders started giving orders right away.
The other nobles put down their wine glasses and rushed out of the hall. The commanders quickly returned to their offices.
Loud alarm echoed in the tree; the band had no idea what happened, but they started running away after hearing it.
The residents of the Fairy Realm knew how terrifying the Nightmare Realm was. They were taught about it when they were still students. The commanders had no time to waste and started preparing for the retreat right away.
Bossier turned his head around and looked at the scene on the mirror.
“The legendary sealed form of Nightmare Realm… Mystery… I hope you can survive that…” His body turned into countless white birds and disappeared into the sky.
Victoria’s fingers stopped right in front of Turin’s chest.
The two remained quiet as they could not move. The beasts also stopped moving.
The red snowflakes slowly landed on their bodies. Some of the snow had already melted and the liquid looked like blood.
Victoria tried to raise his head. He looked at the sky, fear in his eyes.
Turin caught the chance and finally found a way to deal with the fear. Turin hit Victoria in his chest and they were blown away by the impact—it almost looked like something exploded between them.
Their bodies left two long lines on the ground.
The snow was soaked in blood and there were some black stones on the ground. The place was a mess.
Victoria coughed several times and finally could move again. He slowly stood up.
“It seems like the situation has changed… You’re lucky, Turin. I’ll kill you the next time I see you.” He finished the sentence and disappeared into red light. It seemed like he did not care about the beasts.
Turin did not respond. He looked at the sky, his expression complicated.
There were countless monsters flying out of the dimension fissure.
Some of the monsters had wings, some had two heads, and there were also monsters that had no limbs under their black outfits.
They were all charging into the wizard world.
The golden giant was surrounded by strange creatures, widening the fissure slowly.
The soldiers of the Dark Wizard Tower were moving quickly toward the blue light rays. Some of the monsters devoured the soldiers who failed to dodge the attacks.
The monsters were so strong that they had the same power level as a rank 4 wizard each and were much stronger than the soldiers of the Dark Wizard Tower. The flying dragons were groaning and screaming as they fell to the ground.
Under the blood sun, the green frost was burnt dark slowly and the land was covered with red snowflakes. The vortexes formed by clouds were still spinning in the sky.
It felt like black and red were the only two colors left in the world.
