Chapter 540: Leaving (1)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
The man with a pair of white wings slowly disappeared into the air; it was probably a shadow that was created by the wizards.
Angele was chasing after Vapor and saw some more destroyed cities on the ground. The ruins were full of mutated human beings.
Those mutated mortals varied in body structure but all had sharp blades as part of their bodies. Also, they were just wondering around in the area. It seemed like Vapor was their creator.
Angele flew to the sky and glanced around. With a flick of his finger, he released some black smoke and turned it into a mirror with clear images displayed in it.
Vapor was floating over a city, laughing like crazy. The energy waves from his sword were rotating around him like a green tornado. The energy waves were flying to all the directions and attacking everything in their range furiously.
The energy waves landed on the city like energy bombs. The mortals and wizards in the city were trying their best to run. No one was trying to fight back, it seemed like they already lost the hope in front of Vapor’s incredible power.
“Vapor, I’ll be leaving now. I just want to let you know that it seems like the realm power of both realms is merging. Be careful,” Angele muttered.
“Merging? Ha, it doesn’t matter. That will make the situation even more exciting for me!” Vapor floated in the air. “You’re way too slow. I’ve almost eliminated all the people in this city, so I won’t be sharing the souls with you.”
“It’s fine.” Angele wasn’t concerned. He needed a huge amount of souls and negative emotions to speed up his progress. The number of souls in the city would not help him a lot—he needed much more than that.
Angele entered the Fairy Realm because he wanted to check the current situation of the Dark Wizard Tower. The Dark Wizard Tower barely had anything left and he successfully reached his goal.
However, Vapor was not showing any respect and it made Angele a bit angry.
“Anyway, the changes probably won’t be harmful to you. Have fun then, I’m leaving now.” He did not tell Vapor about the strange statue he saw earlier.
“Go ahead.” Vapor disappeared from the mirror.
Angele pursed his lips into a smile and hesitated for a second. He turned to the right and saw a woman’s face that came from nowhere on his right shoulder.
The woman’s face was around two centimeters away from Angele’s face.
“Huh?” Angele released some dark red light and the furious realm power of the Nightmare Realm drove all the random energy waves away from him.
Angele quickly moved away from the woman and started checking the situation.
The woman was wearing a white dress and her face was pale. Her eyes were dark and she was looking at Angele calmly.
“This is probably the same as what happened to the statue…” Angele’s brow furrowed; his right hand turned into a black claw and he tried to break the woman’s neck.
The woman was not injured, she was just standing there. The realm power and the claw did nothing to her, it almost felt like that the woman was just an illusion.
“My physical attack and energy attack did nothing.” Angele narrowed his eyes and looked at the woman. “It’s different from the illusions in Nightmare Realm, otherwise, the energy attack would’ve worked.”
The woman suddenly collapsed, her body turned into white light dots and disappeared into the air.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes. He turned his head around and looked at the forest that was on the right side of the destroyed city. The forest was right between the mountains and the plain.
Angele lowered his body and flew into the forest, landing on the ground without any problem.
The forest was deadly silent, there were no insects nor birds around. The vegetation was the only thing here; there was some thin white mist among the trees that were around two meters tall.
“I saw those white light dots dropping down here…” Angele’s brow furrowed, he started walking slowly in the forest as blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
He heard a noise and turned around, staring at the tall tree in front of him.
On the surface of the tree, there was an image of a woman. The woman was staring at Angele and looked identical to the woman he saw in the sky.
The image was so lively that it almost looked like a living human being.
However, only half of her body could be seen from the tree but the color of the image was so charming that it almost looked like a photo taken by a camera. Angele wondered if the tree was a mirror and the woman was standing right in front of it.
Strangely, the woman in the image started moving again after staring at Angele for a while. She started walking deep into the forest. Several seconds later, she appeared on another tree that was close to the first tree. Part of the woman’s body was not shown due to the gap between the two trees—the scene was terrifying.
Angele looked at the woman as she moved again. It almost looked like she was traveling through the forest using the trees; Angele was observing the whole procedure carefully.
The woman was walking slowly and it seemed like only the trees could display her image. When the distance between the trees was large, Angele would not be able to detect any movement; it felt like that the woman disappeared for a couple seconds at such times.
Angele collected some data and did the calculations. The amount of time the woman needed to travel among trees was always the same.
The woman’s image looked like a moving painting in a different dimension; the trees were transporting the image.
‘Scan failed… Scan failed…’ Zero kept reporting back. The biochip could not analyze the situation.
Angele followed after the woman’s image and entered deep into the forest. Several minutes later, the woman’s image disappeared completely and a damaged wooden building appeared in front of him instead.
The gray building had two levels, its windows and doors were all leaning to the side. It looked like they could fall at any time. The wind blew over the building and the building made some strange noises.
Angele noticed that something was different as he approached the building.
He stopped in front of the black fence and stood by the iron gate.
After the noise, the iron gate opened by itself in Angele’s sight; it almost felt like there was an invisible hand pushing it.
“Why did you lead me here? What do you want?” Angele opened his mouth and repeated the sentence in different languages. He used Chaos, Metia, and the universal ancient language.
No one responded, the place was quiet.
Angele stood outside the iron gate without moving an inch.
“I’ve read about a mysterious realm in an ancient book. The mysterious realm was filled up with strange creatures and unexplainable things. The realm was far from us but strong. It was connected to other strong realms like the Chaos Realm. The strange things happening in the Nightmare Realm are brought by that realm. However, this is just one of the theories that might be false…” he muttered with a blank expression on the face.
No one responded. The gray building was quiet and the wind was no longer blowing.
“The realm power of the Nightmare Realm is perfect for that realm to open a dimension fissure…” A smile appeared on Angele’s face.
“The best way to break the curse and leave is to…”
Angele closed his eyes slowly.
He then quickly opened his eyes again.
The building, the iron gate, the fence, and the trees around him all disappeared.
Angele found that he was standing in front of a beautiful painting.
In the painting, there was a gray building surrounded by trees. The iron gate in the fence was half open and Angele could still hear the noise made by the iron gate.
On the second floor of the building, he could see a woman in a white dress looking at Angele. Her eyes were completely black; it was the same woman he saw earlier.
Angele checked the surroundings, it seemed like the painting was kept in a religious building inside a destroyed city and there were long red candles around it. The melted candles solidified on the ground—it almost looked like the floor was soaked in blood.
“I’d probably be trapped in the painting forever if I walked into the gate, right?” Angele looked at the woman in the painting. “Maybe that was how you turned into part of that painting?” he muttered.
Angele opened his mouth and released some black smoke. The smoke turned into smoke chains and twisted around the painting. He wanted to take the painting with him and study it.
The painting was inserted into large stone with the diameter of over three meters. The smoke chains went around the painting several times.
“Come to me!” Angele raised his arms.
However, the stone did not move an inch.
“Energy doesn’t work?”
Angele’s expression turned serious; he released several balls of dark flames. The flame balls turned into lion men, who tried to lift the stone up.
The lion men roared and tried their best but they could not move the stone.
Angele thought for a while after seeing the situation.
With a flick of his finger, the mutated mortals in the city entered the building but they feared Angele’s power and lowered their bodies.
“You guys, come here. Carry this painting for me. Make sure you don’t damage it.” Angele pointed at three mutated mortals that were standing on the left.
Their right arms were red greatswords and there were spikes on their backs. Each of the mutated mortals was around two meters tall and they all had muscular bodies; one of them was a female.
They walked to Angele and kneeled after Angele pointed at them.
