“Lie down!” An armored knight jumped at Angele and hit him hard.
They passed by the leader of the black robes and started fighting in the sky. Silver flames sparked as their swords contacted.
“For the church!”
“God bless us!”
The black robes from the church shouted and drew their maces. They raised the maces and they were about to charge at Angele, however, they were stopped by the fissure on the ground.
Angele held the sword tight and slashed forward.
The blade blew the armored knight away; the knight rolled several times on the ground and hit the tree. It was the knight with an eye patch. Blood leaked out of his armor, and no one knew if he was still alive. He just lay by the tree without moving an inch.
Angele checked the surroundings and noticed that most of the knights were stopped by the fissure. They were trying to find a safe place to stand, however, the leader of the black robes was walking to him with a calm expression on the face.
He swung the sword and drew a cross in the air.
“You never learn…”
“God is watching us!” the leader roared and threw the mace at Angele; his body was coated by a thin white glow.
The mace landed where Angele was standing at and left a one-meter-wide hole on the ground.
Angele’s expression changed after he dodged the attack.
“Interesting…” He leaped to the side and dodged another attack. The leader picked the mace up; the spikes on the mace were illuminated by the white glow.
Angele kicked the leader hard when he missed the attack.
The leader almost fell to the ground, Angele’s Strength was over 30, however, it seemed like the leader was not severely injured. Although the white glow on his body was weakened, he roared and his muscles suddenly started growing. He looked much taller and stronger than before.
The leader charged to Angele like an angry bear.
The attack still missed and Angele kicked the leader in the waist again. The leader fell to the ground but he quickly stood up and it felt like he was not feeling any pain.
Angele’s expression turned serious as blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
Rows of data were being refreshed by the leader’s body, he could even see the electrocardiography and the electroencephalography in his sight. The man’s heart rate was over five times per second.
‘Target is recovering… He’ll fully recover in five seconds,’ Zero reported back quickly.
Angele looked at the leader who just stood up and scanned his body.
‘I already used all my force when kicking him, although I’m not in my true form, the attack can easily knock a mammoth out. The white glow is the problem—80 percent of the damage was blocked by the white glow and he recovered from the injury within seconds. He’s just a group leader in the church but he’s so strong…’ He finally knew why they could eliminate the wizards. The energy density in this area was low and the servants of the church buffed their bodies using a certain technique. It was nearly impossible for an average wizard to win a fight like this.
‘My Strength is 33 and an average mortal’s Strength is 1 but this guy is not even hurt… He can probably handle an average wizard easily…’ Angele stopped thinking and slashed backward.
A black robe behind Angele was hit by the tip of the blade, his forehead was pierced and he fell to the ground while the mace was still in his hand.
Angele quickly pulled the blade out of the black robe’s forehead and blocked the mace from the leader.
He stabbed the leader using the tip of the sword but it was stopped by the white glow around the man’s body.
It sounded like the blade was vibrating, Angele could feel the strong force coming from the handle of the sword and could barely hold it steadily.
“Die!” he shouted and moved the sword away from the leader. Angele’s body started spinning like a gyroscope.
The silver blade drew numerous silver lines in the air and the slashes all landed in the center of the leader’s chest.
*CHI CHI CHI*
Two more armored knights charged toward Angele while he was spinning but they were blown away right away. The two knights landed in the forest and fainted.
A black crack appeared in the center of the leader’s chest and Angele’s sword finally went through the man’s body. The bloody tip of the sword appeared on the other side of the leader’s body.
Angele held the sword using both hands and kicked the leader in the waist while pulling his sword out of the man’s body.
‘It’s over. I just need to focus all force at one point and repeat the process multiple times.’ Angele inhaled deeply. He did not use any wizard power or bloodline power this time. He felt tired because his opponent had a strange shield and a strong body.
The leader of the black robes fell to the grass floor and looked at the night sky with a pair of soulless eyes. The sapphire ring on his right hand was still releasing some white light.
Angele walked to him and removed the ring from his hand. The remaining white glow quickly disappeared from the man’s body.
“God will… punish you…” he spoke when the blood was still coming out of his mouth and stopped breathing a couple seconds later.
Angele looked at the ring in his hand, it was a silver ring with a sapphire on it. The sapphire was clean and attractive.
He glanced around and noticed that most of the black robes were caught in his blade dance. There were also black robes who died in the fissure, however, some of the knights escaped. He knew that he knocked some of the knights out during the battle, but he was not sure if they were still alive or not.
Angele’s wooden house was still burning, he stood in front of the dancing flames and wiped the blood off his blade.
“I should leave now… I’ve already collected the painting and the things that are important to me. I didn’t kill all the knights because I need them to send the message back. The church will go after us and Vivian will have more time to escape,” he muttered as he played with the sapphire ring. He walked to the forest and finished off the fainted knights.
“If I used any of the three battle styles, a fight like this’d be finished in seconds…” Angele lowered the crossguard sword as a bitter smile appeared on his face. He was fighting enemies with strange powers as a swordsman with a strong body. Also, the crossguard sword he was using had average quality.
Angele glanced at the fissure on the ground as he stopped thinking. He created the fissure using the sword skill he developed, he did not use any of the wizard power or bloodline power.
He decided not to waste any more time and started heading to the town.
He increased his speed and rushed to the town. Angele arrived at an arched bridge a couple minutes later, the bridge was the only exit of the town.
Teams of guards in white armor were patrolling around the bridge. Two leader-looking guards with helmets were having a conversation while looking at the burning fire on the hill.
On the other side of the bridge, people from the town were also looking at the fire by the bridge. Angele noticed that Vivian was also in the crowd.
He hid in the shadow and moved to the left side of the river. He jumped over the river and entered the town with no problem after he made sure that no one else was around.
Angele thought for a while and threw the crossguard sword into the river. He wiped the dust off his body and retrieved a damaged black coat from the mirror. He put on the coat and headed to his shop.
He could see the patrolling guards on the street; the guards were checking the surroundings constantly with torches in their hands.
Angele increased his speed and returned to his shop within half a minute.
He jumped over a wall and entered the quiet backyard; he could hear Fra breathing in the room.
“Fra? Wake up, there’s a problem, we need to leave,” Angele spoke in a low voice. He pushed the door open and entered the room.
There was a small storage room behind the shop. It was used just for storage but Angele put a wooden bed in it so Fra could use it as a bedroom.
Fra was sitting on the bed quietly, she leaned against the wall and remained silent.
“Get ready, Fra, we need to leave tonight. Something happened to the people from the church,” Angele walked to Fra and looked at her.
Fra raised her head and spoke in a hoarse voice, “I thought you were going to hand me in and claim the reward…”
“Why? Because you didn’t see me after you wake up?” Angele patted the girl’s head. “Well, I’m going to sell you to someone else for even more money after you grow up.” He pulled Fra’s cheeks. “Alright, go get ready now.”
Fra looked frightened and confused. She lost her entire family and Angele was her last hope. She was wanted by the church—although the reward might not be attractive to everyone, she still doubted if Angele was really trying to help her. Also, Fra knew that her relatives that did not live in this town would be executed sooner or later.
They quickly packed everything into two large cases and put all the silver coins they had into a large leather pouch.
Angele took out some black mud and applied it on Fra’s birthmark. The black birthmark quickly turned into the color of her skin.
“A little trick but it will return to normal after the mud is dry. We need to hurry.” Angele poured the rest of the mud on Fra’s hair and turned her hair white.
They dragged the two cases out of the shop carefully.
It was late in the night and most of the local people already returned to their houses.
It was quiet on the street but there were still guards patrolling the area.
Angele grabbed Fra’s hand and headed to the exit of the town.
