Angele checked the footprints and noticed that there were more than one people here.
‘Many people entered and left the mansion.’ Angele confirmed his assumption.
Suddenly, the door of the main building was slowly opened—a group of human beings wearing tight white suits appeared. Their leaders were a man and a woman, they were both around 35 years old.
The man and the woman looked surprised after they noticed Angele’s presence.
“Green… Green?!” the middle-aged woman shouted in a shaky tone as she stared at Angele’s face.
Angele’s sight fell upon the woman’s face and he realized that the woman looked familiar, although there were scars on her face.
“Freia and Frey?” he wondered.
“Green! It’s really you!” Freia rushed into Angele’s arms.
Angele opened his arms and hugged them. They were much taller than he remembered. He recalled the day Sando left the two children to him; they had already grown up.
Freia’s was trembling in Angele’s arms. Angele rubbed her head as a smile appeared on his face.
“Alright, come on, you’re not a kid anymore, stop crying.”
“I thought we would never see you again…” Freia said in a shaky tone.
Frey had two swords on his belt and there was a crystal band on his head. The man had some mustache, he slowly walked to Angele and looked at Angele respectfully.
Angele patted Freia’s back. “Alright, let’s enter the building first.”
“It looks like you’re doing well. Are you a leader now?”
Frey nodded politely. “Yes, I’m a judge in Colin’s Church of Hunter now.”
Frey always knew what he wanted to do and he was talking like a leader. He did not waste any time on saying meaningless words.
The rest of them remained silent but they all looked like experienced warriors that were good at ambushes. People like them were perfect for random encounters.
Most of them were young and their gender varied, however, it seemed like they were wondering who Angele was.
Angele entered the building with others but he was speechless after he saw what happened.
The decorations in the living room were removed and there was a white platform in the center. On the platform, there was a tombstone.
‘Rest in peace, Green.’ The sentence was engraved onto the surface of the tombstone.
Angele looked at Frey and Freia after seeing the tombstone.
“Green, we tried our best to find you, but… So we thought that you already passed away…” Freia quickly explained.
“Green, we’ve visited your mansion many times over the years, however, we never found you,” Frey explained; his voice was a bit hoarse, and it seemed like there was a problem with his throat.
An armored woman on the side exchanged eye contact with other team members and left the building. The other members quickly left as well, they wanted to create the space for Angele, Frey, and Freia.
They stood in front of the tombstone. Angele asked them about their experiences.
Freia and Frey became famous in the territories of the human beings but almost died during the small-scale wars that were going on. Frey became a representative of the young generation in the church and later the judge of the church after some political wars. With the help of Frey, Freia successfully survived the wars and became the commander of the church’s elite team.
Angele told them a fake story, he said that he was just exploring the realm and described the scene of Eye Devil’s plain.
Angele was smiling while speaking. Freia could feel the warmth climbing up her heart just by looking at Angele’s face. She knew everything would be fine if Angele was with them. However, she wondered why Angele’s appearance never changed. 20 years had passed but he did not age at all.
Freia made sure that the other team members left and asked, “Green, it has been years but you still look the same. It almost feels like that time stopped for you…”
“A drug I took would keep me young and my life expectancy is longer than average because my body is slightly different,” Angele explained. “I think you should remove that since I’m still alive.”
Frey and Freia chuckled. Although Frey was a judge and Freia was a commander, they acted like children when they were around Angele. Angele was the one who took care of them when they were young, after all—he was like their father.
Frey quickly grabbed the tombstone and put it down.
“Have you created your own families?” Angele asked a random question, however, Frey lowered his head after hearing the word and Freia remained silent.
“Alright, I won’t force you to answer my question. You must have your reasons. I think you’re not here just to visit my grave.” Angele pointed at the tombstone and laughed.
Frey hesitated for a second but he still decided to tell the truth. “The biggest hidden base of the human beings was detected and we need to eliminate the monsters that are threats so the relocation operation will succeed. We passed by this area so we decided to visit the mansion.”
“Monsters?” Angele was a bit surprised. “There shouldn’t be any monster in this area. What exactly do you do in the church? Tell me.”
Frey nodded and explained his duty in the church, he also told Angele about the basic system of the church.
Time passed. Angele only asked several questions. Frey was doing the talking most of the time and he told Angele how hard it was for the human beings to survive.
“The church is in charge of our people’s safety. We need to find safe places to build farms or shelters. However, there were traitors who became servants of the lords; our work is to find and hunt them down.”
Before he finished these words, something made a loud noise outside and the whole building started shaking. The dust fell from the ceiling.
“It’s Viktor! Retreat! Everyone!” A young man’s voice came from outside.
“Damn, how did it catch up?!”
“Stay in your formation and prepare the hunter’s blade!”
Noises made by metal weapons and exploding bombs followed after the voice.
Frey and Freia’s expressions turned serious, they charged out of the door right away.
The hunters were attacking an enormous white caterpillar. The caterpillar was chubby but strong.
The hunters were holding dark scimitars in hands. A large piece of flesh would be cut off the caterpillar’s body every time it was hit by the scimitars.
“I didn’t expect Viktor to be so fast. Retreat, everyone, retreat now!” Frey drew his swords and charged forward. His body turned into two shadows and he quickly struck the caterpillar on both sides of its head.
Two large wounds appeared on the caterpillar’s body and white blood spurted out of them. The caterpillar was screaming in pain as it struggled.
The caterpillar exploded and the white blood splashed everywhere.
Ten more caterpillars appeared in the forest, moving toward the humans at full speed. There was a caterpillar that was more than ten meters tall behind the smaller caterpillars and it was also moving toward the human beings slowly.
There was an upper body of a man on top of the largest caterpillar’s head. The man’s body was connected to the caterpillar’s body.
The man was bald and naked. The color of his skin looked identical to the color of the caterpillar’s body.
“Insects… We finally found you…” the man spoke. His voice sounded like the noise made by the caterpillars.
Frey took two steps back; he looked anxious. He exchanged eye contact with Freia and she quickly sent a signal to the team using a hand gesture. The whole team started moving away from the caterpillars slowly.
“King of Viktor… I thought you would only send your servants…” Frey looked to the right before finishing the sentence.
A monster with the head of a snake and the body of a human being slowly stepped out of the forest.
“Snake Shadow Demon…” Frey’s expression changed. “You’re fast.”
“I’ve been following you for six days. I’m going to capture you all, ha. It’s hard to meet the judge of the church.” The snake man sneered.
“Step back, arrogant bastards!” someone behind Frey spoke in a deep tone.
Angele stepped forward and his eyes were covered with a red glow.
“Which lord are you working for?”
“How dare you talk to me like that…”
The snake man’s sight fell upon Angele.
“Green!” Frey stepped forward and stood in front of Angele. “I’ll take care of this, don’t worry!”
“It’s fine.” Angele smiled.
Raising his hand, Angele released some black smoke toward the snake man and the caterpillar man.
The black smoke turned into a snake and hit the invisible barrier in front of the snake man’s body before he realized what just happened.
The barrier broke into pieces.
A shadow of a monster appeared behind the snake man. The monster had the head of a snake and the body of a bird.
“I’m the Lord of Dire and my name is Unora, who are—”
The black smoke snake turned into a large hand and crushed the shadow, penetrating the snake man’s body.
The shadow turned into black smoke along with the snake man before it could finish the sentence.
“I’ve informed the lords that this is a restricted area… I have the right to kill the creatures that invade my property…” Angele lowered his hand and looked at the caterpillar man.
