Angele watched the strange man crawl back to the dimension fissure and lowered his head.
He turned around and looked at the fountain by the end of the street. There should’ve been three human-shaped statues there, but one of them was missing.
The two remaining statues looked like naked men with backpacks, hammers, and long cylinders on their backs.
Angele checked the base of the missing statue carefully and his brow furrowed.
“This man must be one of the three statues; he was turned into a living being by the realm power, but the strange ability he had…” Angele realized what happened.
“I should complete my mission here and leave as soon as possible so that I don’t need to worry about all the changes that are happening…”
He glanced around and stepped forward. His body floated in the air and he started flying to Vapor.
The large capital started shrinking in Angele’s sight, it slowly disappeared from the green plain; only several yellow roads that led to the far side could still be seen.
Angele’s body was surrounded in dark smoke. He was flying at full speed in the gray sky, leaving a long black trail behind. About ten minutes later, he heard something vibrating in the front.
The sky and the earth were shaking and there were some tiny green light dots that looked like fireflies flying around.
Angele raised his head and looked ground. The land in the front was covered with green light dots; the green light illuminated the sky.
He saw a rotating fan ahead after he entered the area with the green light dots on the ground. The fan stood in the air, facing Angele.
The fan was several thousand meters long and blocked the path ahead. The fan was drawing everything around to it—the whole thing almost looked like a white tornado.
Angele suddenly stopped moving in the air, he just looked at the fan.
He noticed that there was a tall man in armor slashing the fan like crazy with a thin sword in his hand. The man’s body was surrounded by green smoke, which prevented him from being drawn in by the tornado.
It was Vapor, who arrived at the area first. Vapor was moving extremely fast, he could slash many times in a second with the thin sword in his hand.
Strangely, it seemed like that his sword was not doing anything, it was not even making any noise.
After about ten seconds, his last strike landed on the fan and finally made some loud noise. Vapor quickly moved back after the hit.
Vapor quickly moved to Angele and stopped in front of him.
The humongous black fan suddenly broke into pieces; it felt like the fan was made of some weak materials—it looked like a collapsing hill of sand. It dropped to the ground and turned into piles of black metal sand.
There were around ten dark wizards standing behind the black fan. Their bodies were dried up and turned into the sand before they could say anything.
“Such a strong ability…” Angele praised. “All the power from your slashes gathered and exploded at the same time. You have some impressive sword skills, Vapor.”
Vapor looked happy after hearing those words but he still snorted. “Well, I’d rather have a strong body like you.”
“We all have our own advantages.” Angele smiled. “They still kept you here for a while. Are you having trouble tracking them down?”
Vapor’s expression turned serious after hearing the question. “Those rats and insects! The only thing they do is running around using the portals. I’m fast, but they are faster! Also, they still have the technique that can track down the beings from the Nightmare Realm. They leave as soon as I get closer to them!”
He stopped for a second and looked at Angele. “Those insects are heading to the capital of another country. I think they want to gather their power and defend against us. From what I know, you had some problems with the Dark Wizard Tower, right?”
“So what?” Angele questioned back. “We’ve killed many members of the Dark Wizard Tower since we entered this realm, I don’t feel hatred anymore. I’m just here to see how you’re doing and see if I can meet any familiar faces from the Dark Wizard Tower. How long will it take for us to get to the city with the strongest energy movement?”
“I don’t know, but it should be close. I can feel the power ahead. I think they are ready for us.” Vapor swang his sword several times and returned it to the sheath.
They stopped chatting and went over the sand hill that was formed by the remains of the fan. They advanced for around half an hour at full speed and finally saw a large city that was slowly sinking into the ground.
It looked like there was an invisible barrier around the city. Angele could see the people standing on the streets and empty ground among the buildings from the sky. They raised their heads and looked at Angele. Their eyes were filled up with fear, hatred, and anger.
The whole city was slowly sinking into the gray plain without making any noise. It felt like the city was sinking into a swamp.
There were three groups of people floating above the city; they looked like wizards in black, yellow, or red robes. They were all doing the same thing: chanting incantations and drawing runes in the air.
Yellow strings were released from their bodies—the strings were the power source of the barrier.
“Damn! Not this again!” Vapor’s expression changed after seeing the scene. He noticed that there were several farms around the city; there were mortals hiding in their own houses. It seemed like only the nobles were protected by the barrier.
Vapor sneered as green flames blinked in his eyes. The mortals on the ground were bright like torches in his eyes.
Raising his hands, he clapped. Countless green light dots were released from his palms and the light dots started falling right away.
“Petty insects… The nobles have given you up… If you want revenge, open your mind and pray to the great Vapor… I’ll give you great power…” His voice became attractive and mysterious.
Countless green light dots were falling to the ground, they looked like plant seeds. They quickly sank into the heads of the mortals.
Seconds later, the mortals’ bodies started changing. Their skin turned from white to red and their height increased to three meters. Some of them had their arms turned into sharp blades with long spikes rising from their backs. There were also mortals with their feet turned into sharp needles.
Hatred and anger filled up those mortals’ eyes; however, some of the mortals could not handle the power and their bodies exploded after taking in the green dots.
Several minutes later, countless mutated mortals appeared on the ground. They followed Vapor’s orders and charged toward the sinking city.
“What did you do?” Angele was surprised.
“Nothing. I just turned them into brave soldiers with strong sword skills.” Vapor chuckled and lowered his hands. His sight fell upon the barrier again.
“The barrier can probably stop a normal sealed form, but I’m Vapor…” He drew the sword and swang it several times in the air.
The sword started vibrating and made loud vibration noises.
Vapor’s body floated in the air; he released a strong energy wave that was drawing all the energy particles toward him. The energy wave was quickly turning into a strong force field.
Angele’s expression changed, he moved ten meters away from Vapor and watched his movements quietly.
‘It’s an energy charging technique… I don’t think I can handle his charged strike. The longer he charges, the stronger his strike will be.’ Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes and he stared at Vapor carefully.
‘120000, 130000, 170000, 200000…’ The numbers that were reported back by the biochip were getting higher and higher.
‘300000, 380000, 390000, finally, it stopped…’
Angele’s expression turned serious, it was the first time that he witnessed the full power of a lord.
Vapor’s strike could deal around 390000 degrees of damage. If the strike landed on an unprotected city, he could easily destroy it, and the land would be damaged permanently. Angele assumed that Vapor’s strike could destroy a city like New York.
When compared to an atomic bomb, Vapor’s attack was easier to control and it could pierce through almost anything.
It seemed like Vapor’s power did not come from the bloodline or the true form. What Angele saw was Vapor’s real form, but Vapor’s strike was more powerful than an atomic bomb.
Angele moved 30 more meters away from Vapor to keep a safe distance.
‘Zero, simulate a battle between Vapor and me with my refined true form activated,’ he ordered. Angele wanted to know how strong he was among the sealed forms.
‘Mission created, reading the data… simulation started…’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in Angele’s ears.
The blue light in front of Angele’s eyes was getting intense. The light dots drew blue lines in the air and looked like a meteor rain in the sky.
Several seconds later, Zero reported back.
‘Simulation completed, you won the battle after losing 11 life masks and 80% of your soul was damaged.’
Angele’s brow furrowed. ‘How is that possible… The more life masks I lose, the more my soul will be damaged. It’s just how this works. Show me the battle simulation.’
Angele’s eyes blurred after hearing the noise. An empty space appeared in his sight; a large black scorpion was fighting against Vapor in this space. Vapor barely countered Angele’s attacks, however, he could easily cut parts of the scorpion’s body off. Vapor was too fast for the scorpion and the only thing the latter could do was release the dark-red hair.
Although Vapor dealt a lot of damage to the scorpion, his body was being impacted by the high-temperature field constantly. He was slowed down as he got tired. Also, Vapor had trouble dealing with the illusions that were attacking his mind and soul. The scorpion would attack Vapor with its claws when Vapor was not paying attention. The claws of the scorpion cracked Vapor’s armor and the green smoke around his body was rising to the air.
Vapor’s body suddenly exploded, but he quickly recreated his body in the green smoke.
