Suddenly, something grabbed Angele’s hand, dragging him to the other side.
Angele was caught off guard and hit the handle hard.
It felt like there was a pair of hands that were dragging him to a completely different realm.
“Die!” Angele narrowed his eyes and released some dark smoke from his right arm which quickly turned into the claw of a scorpion.
It sounded like the claw cut something into pieces and he could finally move his right arm again.
Angele quickly took two steps back and looked at the handle quietly.
“Such power… It’s…” He recalled the day he met the woman for the first time. The woman traveled using the tree trunks like she was at another dimension.
“I need to take her out as soon as possible…”
Angele’s right arm was surrounded by dark smoke again and it quickly returned to normal.
He walked upstairs and entered the room that was opposite to the room with the painting in it.
Everything was calm and peaceful. He picked up a crystal orb from the bookshelf and rubbed it several times.
The white crystal orb started glowing.
“Green, I’m sorry about the wedding. Fir said that she wanted to delay the wedding because she needed some time to get prepared.” Vivian’s came from the crystal orb. “The wedding will be delayed for two years. I think I should give you two some more time.”
The voice repeated after the sentence was finished. “Green, I’m sorry about the wedding…”
Angele sighed. “I guess she didn’t say she wanted to cancel the wedding because she didn’t want to disappoint Vivian… She was scared.” He put down the crystal orb and the white glow faded away from the orb.
Angele stayed in the room with the painting most of the time for the next ten days. He also delivered food and water to the girl in the basement daily.
The woman finally understood that it was not a dream and felt depressed. She would still do what she had to do to survive but she did not say anything else.
Angele was not concerned, he spent most of his time studying the painting. He also visited the elders and Vivian from time to time.
He tried to see if there were any mineral resources around.
He found a large iron mine in a hill around the town; it took him two days to locate the mine.
The only thing he needed to do was mining. Angele spent some time and developed a perfect metal force field to help with the mining procedure. The iron ores would be refined by the force field as well.
The two realms finally started separating after a couple months.
It was summer. The chilling wind was blowing over the trees in the forest.
Angele was writing something down on a pile of yellow leather paper in his reading room.
The only noise here was made by the pen.
Angele’s shadow leaned on the floor under the bright light from the candle and his shadow was waving in the wind.
He suddenly stopped writing. Angele raised his head and looked out of the window, the night sky was dark.
A dark-red glow surrounded his eyes and a large shadow of a scorpion appeared behind him slowly.
A red wave suddenly appeared in the night sky and expanded to the endless sky. It felt like that the red wave was scanning the whole sky.
“Phoenix, we’ll be going back now. Are you coming?” Bone’s voice was sent to Angele through the energy waves released by the realm power of Nightmare Realm. “Fly back in your true form if you want to leave with us. The realms are separating and the realm power will be pressuring you again.”
Angele smiled and responded, “Don’t worry about me. I have something else to take care of.”
“Do whatever you want. You can come back when you want to anyways.” Bone was not concerned. “I wish you were with us. The lords of the northland were pushed back into the dimension tunnel and Vapor slashed the tunnel in half. We almost created a dimension vortex. Thanks to you, we finally defeated them once, ha.”
“Well, we were just lucky.” Angele chuckled but he did not say anything else.
Their conversation ended as Bone’s voice slowly faded away.
Angele put down the pen and stood up.
A strong pressure appeared and moved to Angele as he stood up. The pressure was coming from all angles.
He released some black smoke but it quickly disappeared under the pressure.
It felt like that there was a mountain over his back and he had to use all his force to support the mountain.
The feeling was familiar but he had not got used to it yet. Angele shook his head; although he still had the power of a rank 3 wizard, the power was from his bloodline, and it was impossible for him to fully activate his true form. However, it was still possible that he could release a strike with the power of a rank 6 wizard once.
“The dimension channel to the Nightmare Realm is disappearing…” he muttered and looked at the sky. It felt like that he could see the entrance to the dark channel closing slowly.
“The good thing is that I have a lead on how to handle the realm power.” He turned around, left the reading room, and walked downstairs.
He opened the lid and entered the basement.
The woman he summoned was still surrounded by the rune walls in the center of the basement. The woman looked excited after she saw Angele.
“Hey! When will you let me go? Why do you even keep me here?”
Angele glanced at the woman and waved his hand.
The runes walls slowly disappeared and the girl was finally released from the prison.
The girl ran to Angele and she looked a bit scared.
“Are you a mage? I’ve read about something like this.”
“Mage? What’s that?” Angele chuckled but he was not here to check on the woman.
He walked to the corner. There was a T-shaped rune circle on the wall; the white runes inside the circle were crawling slowly, looking like strange white insects.
Some silver liquid was dripping down the bottom of the rune circle.
The liquid was collected by a small hole below the circle. There was already a good amount of liquid in it.
Angele nodded slightly as he was satisfied with the result.
“Hey, can you teach me some magic skills?” The woman named Ruixin Li opened her mouth again. “Like… like the thing you just did. You waved your hand and the light walls disappeared. Can you teach me that?”
Angele glanced at the woman and scanned her using the biochip. The woman’s body was weak and she did not seem very intelligent.
“Aren’t you scared? I could kill you.”
“You won’t, right?” Xinrui chuckled and took two steps back. “You summoned me because you thought I could help you with your research, right?”
“You’re just the waste of a failed experiment.” Angele was just being honest.
“Well…” The smile disappeared form Xinrui’s face.
“If you were not a human being, you’d end up in there.” Angele pointed at the garbage disposal tunnel. The woman came from a place like the Earth and Angele kept her alive because the woman reminded him of the old days. Also, he would not waste his resources if the woman was not a human being.
Xinrui pursed her lips and took several more steps back. “What are you going to do to me then?”
“It depends.” Angele smiled. “You’re a student of a university, right? What were you studying?”
“Country Structure and Society…” Xinrui responded in a low voice.
“Huh?” Angele was a bit surprised. He suddenly reached to the woman’s head as his eyes glowed. His red eyes looked like two clean rubies.
“What are you doing?!” Xinrui leaped away and she stared at Angele anxiously.
“Huh? My illusion spell didn’t work?” Angele sounded surprised. He was going to trick the woman using illusions and read her memory, however, the spell failed. “That’s interesting.”
Angele was interested, he walked around the woman and observed her body.
“I think there’s a problem with your body. I was going to help you. Why are you scared? Do you really think I’m interested in your weak body?”
Xinrui was still anxious.
“Well, whatever. I’m the one who summoned you so I’ll give you some advice. The world is dangerous, if you dress up like this, you might be considered as a witch and you’ll be burnt. It’ll be better if you can stay in the town that’s not so far from here or you can just stay at my house. I’ll clean the storage room for you. Don’t use the living room,” Angele explained. He noticed that the woman was a bit different.
“Also, no one can understand your words. I can help you learn the language for a price and it’ll only take a second for the process to complete.”
“Seriously? You can teach me a language in a second?!” Xinrui got excited again, it almost felt like that she was mentally unstable.
“Of course, for a price.” Angele showed the woman one finger. “Ten years. Work in this house for ten years. Clean the rooms, wash the clothes, and cook the food. If you think it’s a good deal, come find me in the reading room on the second floor in three days. Also, I need to leave for a while, you can find the food in the kitchen.”
“Ten years?!” Xinrui was surprised after she heard the word because it sounded like ten years was nothing to Angele.
“One more thing, the reading room, kitchen, and the storage room are the only three places you have access to.” There was a gentle smile on Angele’s face and he looked a bit curious as he looked at the woman.
