Angele raised his head and looked at the giant in the fissure; he was standing in a forest and there was a blank expression on his face. He was not scared or excited.
Becky was trembling behind him. They were so close to the dimension fissure that the pressure was extremely strong. It felt like the air turned into sticky liquid and they were swimming in it.
Becky tried her best to breathe, but was still having trouble. She was standing behind Angele. Becky was trying so hard that her face turned red and her heart was still racing.
Becky was confused—they were so close to the giant, but the place was silent. The giant and the monsters were not paying attention to them.
It felt like they were ignored; however, Angele and Becky were standing right below the dimension fissure. They could reach the fissure with Elemental Teleportation easily.
“Why are we still here? Are you trying to suicide?” Becky finally questioned.
Angele did not respond, he was still looking at the sky.
“I know you’re the one who summoned them, but I don’t think those monsters will let you go,” Becky sneered. “You’re naive. The monsters will devour you even though you helped them open the fissure. You don’t know how terrifying and cruel they are because you don’t know about the history.”
Angele was not concerned, he just stared at the dimension fissure in the sky.
“You helped them, but you’re too weak and they won’t respect you. They’ll rip you apart and devour your whole body. I heard that you won’t die even if they break your body into pieces, but you’ll feel the intense pain. You’ll watch them eat your feet, your arms, and your organs. They’ll treat you like a snack and chew your flesh like meat jerky.” Becky was trying to scare Angele. “Also, your head will be kept for later. They love eyeballs, and your tongue is great with wine. You won’t be able to fight back and you’ll be tortured until you die!”
None of the words went into Angele’s ears.
“Hey! Are you listening?” Becky tapped Angele’s shoulder. “It’s fine if you want to die, but I don’t. Just give my power back and you can do whatever you want.”
“You won’t die,” Angele finally responded in a low voice and stopped talking. Becky was still making noises, but he focused on the giant in the dimension fissure.
There were several people that looked like beans when compared to the giant flying toward the dimension fissure. The leader was a man with a sword made of smoke; he would slay a monster every time he slashed forward.
“I need to lay low and wait until all the channels open…” Angele narrowed his eyes and watched Mystery fight.
Mystery was flying at full speed in the sky; rays of white smoke were being released from his sword and easily pierced through the monsters. The monsters died and turned into white smoke; the white smoke was then absorbed by the sword.
The more monsters he slew, the larger the smoke sword would become.
“Stay close to me and follow my lead!” Mystery shouted at the two legion commanders behind him. The one on the left was Alice—she looked like a doll. The other one was a man with a dragon head, wearing a black robe. The man’s eyes were bright as silver stars.
“Don’t worry, Commander, I’m much stronger than the ants on the ground,” the dragon man responded in a cold tone. “Alice, I thought you already escaped. Something changed your mind?”
There was a white rabbit toy in Alice’s hand. The force field around the giant was strong, but it seemed like she was not concerned.
Alice blinked her eyes as she responded, “I won’t leave when there’s something I’m interested in. Wood Dragon, you’re the one who always escapes.” It seemed like she did not like what Wood Dragon just said.
“Well, if you try to escape, I’ll just finish you off. To be honest, I never liked you.” Wood Dragon stared at Alice with hatred in his eyes.
“Focus on the monsters!” Mystery shouted in a cold tone. “I’ve already informed Duke Bossier, he should bring the elites here. The channel to the Nightmare Realm is not fully opened yet. The giant used too much power to defeat the Dream Lord and the channel almost collapsed, so he’s being careful right now. Also, we have a chance to kick him out of this world since only a small part of his body entered through the fissure.”
“The only thing we need to do is to seal our dimension fissure, right? It’s great that we don’t have to fight this big guy.” Alice rolled her eyes; it looked like she was relieved.
“Yeah, we need to buy the team time!” Mystery shouted again and slashed forward, however, the smoke ray failed to eliminate a single-winged wolf that was charging at him.
A ray of black light blew the wolf away and Wood Dragon slowly lowered his short wand.
“Master, the monsters are getting stronger; the wolf already has the same power level as a rank 4 wizard, be careful!”
“Got it.” There was cold sweat all over Mystery’s forehead; if they got too close to the monsters, they would be attacked by countless monsters. The smoke sword was too slow since there were too many of them; they would die if they were not careful enough.
The auras around their bodies were removed by the blood sun and area attacks would do no damage to those strong monsters. They needed to focus on a single target.
Also, the red light from the sun hardened the monsters’ skin and increased their resistance. They had the power level of a rank 4 wizard, but they could easily handle the damage dealt by the wizards with similar power level.
“Don’t give up! Duke Bossier will help us! The channel is unstable at the moment and the giant will not attack us with his true power. Although the power of the Nightmare Realm is leaking into this world, his body is still in the dimension fissure and it’s nearly impossible for him to utilize his power. This is our only chance,” Mystery quickly explained. “I’ve sent our coordinates to Duke Bossier so that he can teleport to us. The dimension barrier is weak and we should be able to destroy the channel as a team.”
Wood Dragon and Alice exchanged eye contact, they both flew to Mystery and prepared to finish off the monsters that were damaged by the smoke.
The smoke rays were piercing through the monsters and Mystery’s face turned pale. It seemed like he did not have a lot of energy left.
Several minutes later.
The three were having trouble in the sea of monsters. Mystery’s white wig already fell off his head, revealing his short black hair. Strangely, his hair was drying out while turning yellow.
Also, the hair on his temples turned white and wrinkles appeared on his forehead.
“Mystery.” A naked woman formed by white smoke appeared beside him. “A third of your life energy is gone. I suggest that you retreat as soon as possible, or you’ll die here.”
“Don’t worry, something similar happened the last time. I can recover with the Sand of Time.” Mystery smiled as more wrinkles appeared on his face.
“There is not that much Sand of Time in this world. You were lucky the last time and you should know that—”
“Don’t worry, Maria. This is a fight that I have to fight. We almost died when we entered the Fairy Realm and I swore on my life that I’ll help our teacher revive. This is our best chance to return to the wizard world,” Mystery responded in a light tone. “I’m old, Maria. I found you when I was young, but everything had changed.” The woman was interrupted before she could finish.
The two remained silent and the smoke formed a barrier. The barrier handled the attack from the monsters easily.
“They’re here!” Wood Dragon shouted in a deep voice.
A strange vortex appeared in the air; the vortex turned black and rotated. The vortex quickly formed a tall egg-shaped mirror.
The noise sounded like flowing water. People in white outfits were flying out of the mirror; their leader was Bossier, who was still wearing the military suit.
“Sorry, Mystery, we’re late.”
“I’m counting on you.” Mystery smiled, his face covered with wrinkles. Light faded in his eyes and it felt like he could die at any time.
The mirror was a portal and the elites were coming out of it.
“I brought all the elites that were in the dimension fissure. I’ll take care of the rest.” Bossier looked at Mystery. “It seems like I teleported in time; you’d be dead if we failed. You owe me this time!”
“Yeah, let’s get rid of this big guy first.” Mystery swung his smoke sword and absorbed all the white smoke around.
“The monsters of the Nightmare Realm… Mystery and Bossier, long time no see. We decided to offer help since the situation is getting worse every second!”
A deep voice echoed in the sky.
Three dark shadows stepped out of the portal.
There was a middle-aged woman wearing white armor inside a black robe, an old man with messy white hair, and a shiny silver bat.
“Department heads? So, everyone is here… That’s it, we have to win!” Bossier looked excited. “I thought you wouldn’t make it.”
“We almost missed the portal. We need to move.” The middle-aged woman smiled; she was the head of Department of Change. “We can seal the channel here if we work together.”
“Yeah, and we should be able to eliminate all the monsters!” the old man with white hair spoke in a deep tone.
“They’re trying to seal the channel… How arrogant…” The giant looked at the wizards like looking at insects. “Maybe people don’t remember how strong the Nightmare Realm is… I didn’t participate in the ancient war, but I’d love to pay Fairy Realm a visit…”
