Angele spent most of his time studying the painting after that. He tried many different methods when experimenting and it would take him at least half a day every time he decided to do something different.
The mining rune circle was successfully developed and he kept refining the iron ores he collected, turning them into refined iron ingots. He just needed to collect the ingots once every couple of weeks.
60 000 tons of metal weapons were not a big problem for him, he could easily get loads of iron ore from the mine. Although he needed to refine the iron ore, it would only take him several years to finish everything, and the six-arm snake race could craft the weapons by themselves.
However, he was having trouble activating the dimension locator, it seemed like he had to wait for the next month of the tide to come so he could contact the six-arm snake race using the power of the tide.
Studying the painting, collecting the ingots, checking the dimension locator, and spending time with Vivian, those were the main things that Angele needed to do.
Vivian was living like a mortal in the town. She developed several hobbies, and gardening was one of them. She almost turned the empty ground around her house into a colorful garden.
She would visit the merchants that visited the town from time to time with Angele and go collect flower seeds in the hills. She also spent time with other local women. Vivian enjoyed the tea time and reading time.
There were barely any energy particles in the air so the wizards would have trouble collecting them after casting spells, so they only cast spells when necessary. Most of the wizards were living like mortals in the town—Angele could still cast spells due to his bloodline power, however, the story was different for other wizards of the Elemental Hand.
Fir ended up refusing to marry Angele and Vivian found him several other girls, however, nothing worked out. The mortals could barely breathe in front of Angele because of the weak mentality wave he was releasing. Xinrui was the only one that had no problem with his illusion spells and mentality wave.
Vivian gave up because of that, she thought that Angele had a long life expectancy and he could take his time.
Time flew, ten years passed in the blink of an eye.
Some of the wizards moved out of the town to stay away from the mortals, they thought that the mortals would find that the wizards were different sooner or later.
The First Elder and the Second Elder also moved to two different towns that were far from here.
Angele and Vivian were still living in the same town. They stayed in the shelters the wizards built for several years and changed their appearance slightly so the residents of the town thought they were children of Angele and Vivian.
The life was nice and peaceful. Angele was still studying the painting and the dimension locator while waiting for the next month of the tide to come.
However, nothing happened in the next 30 years.
100 years had passed when they returned to the town for the third time as the relatives of Fenrir Family.
Angele’s thoughts and mind changed slightly after living in a peaceful environment for so long. He learned a lot after all the studies he did and reassessed all the power he had.
He noticed that wizards and strong individuals with bloodline power shared one similarity. They would all reach a whole different level after they broke their power limitation.
Angele named the power limitation as Ancestor’s Limitation and the level above Ancestor’s Limitation as Siva State. In the Chaos language, “Siva” meant “Eternal”.
Siva State represented the extreme power—after reaching Siva State, it would be nearly impossible for him to be defeated and he would be able to affect the dimensional movement. Angele’s refined true form was very close to the power limitation, which meant that he was one step away from Siva State.
However, he needed the support of Nightmare Realm’s power to maximize the power of his refined true form. The other lords were all at the similar level, the only difference was how close they were to Siva State.
After reaching Siva State, it was no longer about utilizing the rules of the realm. He would become the source of pure power—just like Ancestor Sella, who provided water to numerous realms.
Siva State could not be accurately defined and understood since it was a mysterious power level that was never mentioned. Siva State itself was just a concept so Angele barely learned anything about it after analyzing the information he collected for over one hundred years.
Siva State was not just about power and energy.
However, Angele was getting closer to finding out the secret of the painting; also, the month of tide finally came again…
The orange light from the candle appeared in the reading room.
Angele put down the flint stone, walked to the wooden window, and pushed it open.
It was night and it was dark outside. The wind that blew through the window was cold.
He could hear the owls making noise in the forest and there were several glowing flowers on the ground.
There was a black mustache on Angele’s face and his body was slightly stronger than before. He was wearing a silk shirt with long leather pants and boots. He looked a bit like his father in this outfit.
Angele inhaled deeply, the air was wet but refreshing and it made him felt much better.
He pulled out the chair and sat down by the table. There were test tubes, metal beakers, and some other lab equipment on it. There was also a rectangular box with a silver scorpion engraved on it.
Angele pressed the lid of the box slightly.
With the noise, the lid opened by itself. The box was filled up with broken pieces of ice; there was white smoke rising into the air.
In the center of the broken ice, there was a red ball with the size of a finger nail.
Angele grabbed the ball and closed the lid. He took out a metal plate and put the red ball on it.
The red ball melted as it landed on the plate, revealing the dark dust inside.
Angele’s expression turned serious. He released some black smoke using his mouth which quickly surrounded the dark dust.
“100 years passed… I checked the dust that was from different parts of the painting but there’s one thing that I still don’t understand…” He sighed.
“The barrier from the six-arm race can only help me temporarily, I need to advance to the next level so I can solve the problem completely. I hope that the study is worth my efforts…”
The month of the tide was coming and he could finally solve the problem temporarily. Angele was excited since he had been battling the realm power for over 100 years.
Angele calmed down as blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes. His red pupils retracted slightly as he stared at the dust on the plate.
His sight blurred for a second.
‘Modifying the magnification…’ Zero’s voice echoed in his ears.
‘Magnifying… 246 310 000x magnification…’
Black, white, and blue dots flashed in front of his eyes. It felt like there the light dots were flying by Angele and he could barely see anything.
Finally, the magnification stopped after about ten seconds.
A platform with countless diamond-shaped substances appeared in his sight; there were so many of them that they looked like a sea of diamonds.
Angele quickly found the diamond he observed the last time and started checking the diamond behind it.
‘Magnify it and scan for unknown movement.’
Angele’s sight blurred as the diamond was being magnified. The surface of the diamond was also made of countless small diamonds.
‘No unknown movement detected…’
Angele was not depressed at all, he just switched to the next one.
Finally, Zero said something different when he checked the 3005th diamond.
‘Unknown movement detected…’
Angele was going to switch to the next diamond but his expression froze after hearing those words. It was the first time he heard a different response from the biochip after all those years.
He tested all other methods but it seemed like only the basic observing method worked.
‘Was it a false warning?’ He quickly stopped what he was about to do.
‘Unknown movement detected… Keep magnifying?’ Zero questioned again.
‘Yes, magnify it now!’ Angele gave the order before Zero finished its words.
The diamond was being magnified again.
One side of the diamond moved closer and closer. He could see that there were countless black diamonds on the surface just like other ones. One of the diamonds on the surface was magnified again.
The process repeated numerous times.
It felt like that process could be repeated forever, the only things he could see were seas of black diamonds.
Finally, Zero reported back again when Angele was about to get impatient.
‘Maximum limit reached…’
Angele had no time to listen to Zero’s word.
He could not believe what he just saw. He was so surprised that he had to hold his breath. Angele wondered if he was seeing illusions.
The magnification was completed.
The surface of the black diamond was no longer a sea of diamonds, it was nice and smooth.
It almost looked like the surface of a marble tile.
Also, there was a hole in the center of the surface.
The shape of the hole was irregular and it looked like an entrance to an unknown realm.
He could even feel the chill that was coming out of the hole.
Also, Angele found several pale fingers by the edge of the hole.
It seemed like the owner of the fingers noticed Angele’s sight and the fingers quickly disappeared into the endless abyss.
Angele recognized the fingers immediately, it was the from the arm that tried to drag him into an unknown realm.
‘Does it mean that this is the secret of the painting? It’s an entrance to an unknown realm?’
