The giant slowly raised his hand and tried to grip the wizards.
“We’re the members of the wizard tower, we should be able to seal that thing.” Bossier stepped forward. He was floating in the sky like he was standing on the ground.
“I’m counting on you, then.” Mystery had looked like a young man before the fight, but he looked like a dying old man now and the smoke sword had already disappeared. Wood Dragon helped him float in the sky using his force field.
The three members of the Dark Wizard Tower stepped back together.
Bossier looked at the golden hand that was moving toward them and his expression turned serious.
Raising his arm, he shouted, “Prepare the formation! Darkness of Ankarus!”
The armored soldiers started rotating around him and turned into white strings within seconds.
Red and blue flames appeared on Bossier’s hands. His left hand looked like it was formed by translucent blue liquid and his right hand was covered with lava.
The elites were chanting the incantation around him.
A pair of black wings appeared on Bossier’s back and grew quickly. Its size increased greatly within seconds.
The black wings blocked the red light from the blood song and were slowly moving toward the golden hand.
The wings did not make any noise and covered the giant arm; another pair of black wings appeared on Bossier’s back. The wings kept flying to the giant hand and covering its surface.
The black wings covered the golden hand; the feathers on the wings were getting heavier. The movement of the hand was greatly slowed down and it could no longer move when it was about ten meters away from Bossier.
The giant roared and countless golden runes that looked like blinking eyes appeared on his skin.
“A sealing spell!”
The giant suddenly gripped hard.
The black feathers exploded and started falling. However, the removed feathers were quickly replaced by the endless black wings.
The monsters in the sky charged at the wizards at full speed, but they were easily finished off by the department heads and turned into black ashes by the black feathers, disappearing in the wind.
The monsters kept perishing in the falling black feathers and it seemed like they were having trouble reaching the wizards.
“It has been years since the last time Bossier cast the Dark Sealing and it’s the first time I witness it with my own eyes.” The head of the department of change, Sando, praised, “I heard that he learned the spell from a strong being of a mysterious realm and sealed numerous creatures from other realms.”
“The good thing is that this golden giant is slow and all he can do is using the force field to drag his prey into his hand so Bossier has enough time to cast the spell,” the silver bat spoke in a deep tone. “Dark Sealing is a strong spell, but the required resources are hard to prepare, like 99 pairs of Dark Royal Birds’ wings, the blood and the flesh of Molten Giant and Frost Giant.”
A bitter smile appeared on Sando’s face. “This’ll probably be the last time he cast the spell. The last piece of Frost Giant’s flesh is here and the Frost Giant became extinct thousands of years ago; the empire has no way to find him another piece of flesh.”
The wizards looked at the feather-covered hand and felt a bit sad.
“I hate this spell…” The golden giant sounded angry and the eye-blinding golden runes on his skin were flashing at a fast rate.
A ray of golden light was released from his golden mask and hit his right hand right away.
The golden light connected his left eye to the right hand; it looked like a golden line. The giant started chanting incantation as he gripped again.
“Akuda… The heat mother from the chaotic world…” He was speaking a language that was never heard of, but everyone could understand him.
It almost felt like the incantation was not used for spells, it was a prayer before a certain ritual.
The place became silent after the giant finished the incantation. The wizards tried to continue their incantations, but they failed.
It seemed like the sound in this world was blocked by some invisible energy waves.
A ray of golden light was released by the hand and pierced through the wings easily.
More golden rays were released and kept piercing through the black wings.
Bossier’s expression changed as the flames faded from his hands. The black feathers around his body suddenly few to him after the flames were weakened.
Bossier’s expression turned serious.
Opening his mouth, Bossier spat out some purple blood on his hands and the flames were strengthened again. The black feathers also stopped flying to him.
One of the elites disappeared into the air with a scream. The wizard was turned into ashes after touching the black feathers.
More and more wizards were screaming. The black feathers stopped before they touched Bossier, but they still reached the elites. Only four elites were still alive after several seconds.
The screams of the wizards were not blocked by the barrier for some reason and were extremely loud.
The golden hand was no longer bothered by the black wings. The hand passed through the four elites and tried to grab Bossier.
The hand was blocked by a silver brick before it reached Bossier. It was spinning at full speed and the translucent force field it created formed a barrier in front of him.
Bossier used this chance and flew away. The four elites saw the situation and backed off as well. They moved away from the monsters and disappeared into the sky.
‘I hope they can get out alive.’ Bossier was a bit depressed. The flames disappeared from his hands and the remaining black feathers in the air barely blocked the monsters for him.
“Die!” The golden hand reached toward Bossier and tried to grip him again.
A loud noise came from the sky and the sound returned to this world.
The hand was blocked by a giant black greatsword that was about 10 meters wide and 30 meters long. The old man was holding it in his hand.
“Watch out, Bossier! This guy is strong even when his power is restricted by the dimension channel.” The old man was still blocking the attack with the greatsword.
“Thanks, Department Head Cannon.” Bossier took a deep breath and said, “I don’t think I can do it myself. Half of the elites I brought here were killed. The good thing is that the energy forms can be revived using the energy sea, otherwise, it’d be a big problem.”
“We should fight him together. Your Dark Sealing failed and we have no time to waste.” The old bat sent these words through energy particles. The other department heads also nodded.
The old bat flew to Cannon. The old man was still blocking the golden hand’s attacks.
“Alright, Cannon and I will try to stop the hand. We should cast our strongest spells. If we fail, you’ll have to fill in. We need to kick this sealed form back to the Nightmare Realm! Also…” He looked at Mystery and the legion commanders. “Wood Dragon and Alice, take care of Duke Mystery. You should leave this area if possible so that you won’t be caught in the energy waves.”
Mystery struggled when Wood Dragon tried to help him; there was a bitter smile on his face. “I can’t leave. I have my final resort ready and I want to see the channel destroyed. I’ll sacrifice my life for my teacher, and—”
“Mystery!” the old bat interrupted and looked at the Duke. “We have no time to waste. The energy waves we’re going to release will be strong. The conflicting energy waves will weaken our spells. At our level, more doesn’t mean better.”
“The bat is correct. We need enough space to utilize our power.” Sando nodded. “Dark Sealing will protect us for a while, you should leave using this chance.”
Mystery still decided to stay. “Stop it. We need to focus on the fight!”
The department heads saw the dedication in Mystery’s eyes and stopped talking. They looked at Cannon who was still fighting the hand.
Cannon was holding the greatsword in his hand and his body was surrounded by black smoke. There were blood veins on the handle of the sword that connected his hand to the handle. Also, the greatsword was sucking his blood through the veins.
Cannon’s face turned pale within minutes and he looked tired.
“Seal break! Go, my sword!” Cannon shouted.
Countless black and red eyes appeared on the blade of the sword. It almost looked like the blade was a large piece of flesh.
Cannon held the sword using both hands and slashed forward. The attack was slow, but the energy waves released by the eyes pulled the golden hand toward the blade.
The sword hit the hand, but neither of them was damaged. Cannon’s face turned pale and there was blood spurting out of his eyes, running down his cheeks.
Cannon’s expression changed after he realized that the attack dealt no damage.
This was one of the strongest abilities he had, but it was not effective at all. The sword was a strong magic device that he found in an ancient ruins. He thought that the greatsword was a concept gear but he could not activate it after doing some tests and the sword did not have the features of a concept gear.
