The window of the carriage was opened; it was quiet and cold outside.
The forest was deadly silent in the night, the only thing that brightened up the area was the gentle moonlight.
Angele left the carriage quietly. There were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
A dark-red string appeared in the forest. The string came from the carriage and quickly expanded deep into the forest.
Angele started following the direction pointed by the string.
He left the camp and the carriages quickly. About ten minutes later, he heard people talking ahead but the wind blurred their voices.
“If it wasn’t for you, things would never end up like this!” It sounded like a middle-aged man.
“I told you that I don’t know…” The other voice sounded speechless.
“We should’ve… You promised… Are you trying to…?” The man sounded a bit anxious but the important words were drowned out by the wind.
Angele activated his stealth technique and lightened his footsteps while moving forward. He could finally hear the voice clearly.
He looked at the two people who were talking through the gaps between the bushes but their faces were hard to see under the moonlight. One of them was a mercenary he saw earlier, the other one was a girl in a white outfit. Her skin was clean and her hair was smooth.
Angele was a bit surprised, he moved closer to the two people and observed the girl carefully. The girl had no breasts and had Adam’s apple on her neck. He checked the girl using the mentality wave and realized that it was a man that looked like a girl.
Under the moonlight, the man’s cheeks looked pink. He was staring at the middle-aged mercenary with anger in his eyes.
“Do you really think I’ll forgive you? No way! If you didn’t let that guy leave, we would’ve succeeded. I’ll get everything sorted out tonight.”
He took out a pair of black daggers with spikes on the blades. The spikes looked purple under the moonlight.
“Silence!” the man shouted and the two daggers released intense purple light.
All the sounds in the area suddenly disappeared, the effective area of that ability was quite large.
The middle-aged man was surprised, he wanted to say something else but nothing was coming out of his mouth. The man approached the mercenary with the daggers in hand; the mercenary was anxious, he tried to communicate with the man using hand gestures.
The man’s expression changed.
“Cut his throat!” The man’s voice echoed and an invisible blade appeared at the mercenary’s throat.
The middle-aged mercenary fell to the ground and a masked woman in black appeared in front of him. The woman had a sharp claw on her hand which blocked the invisible blade.
The mask covered the woman’s face, Angele assumed her gender because of her breasts; also, she did not have Adam’s apple.
With a flick of her finger, the invisible blade was pushed away, and the blade quickly disappeared into the forest.
“Who are you?” The man looked at the woman in black. “You’re strong since you handled my talent ability like it was nothing.”
He swang his black daggers and the purple light quickly disappeared.
“I’ll just eliminate you if you don’t want to talk! Darkness!” the man shouted.
Thick black fog appeared in the forest and covered all the objects in the area.
Angele was almost caught in the smoke, he quickly took more than 30 steps back but he could no longer figure out what was going on in the smoke.
His brow furrowed as red glow surrounded his eyes. He partially activated his true form so that he could see through the smoke.
There were countless tiny insects in the dark smoke; strange substances released by the insects reflected the light in the area—that was why the smoke looked so thick.
Angele’s partially activated true form did not help him see through the smoke.
‘Such power… It’s not a spell. It’s more like the power of a bloodline…’ Angele compared the energy movements and concluded thus.
Around two minutes later, the thick smoke finally disappeared into the air.
Angele watched the smoke disappear; suddenly, his sight blurred as a black shadow charged toward him.
He quickly raised his hand to block the attack.
The center of Angele’s palm was pierced; the wound looked like a large bloody hole. All the flesh was gone and it almost looked that something took a bite off his hand.
The woman in black appeared in front of Angele and started attacking him like crazy.
*BAM BAM BAM*
Angele blocked the attacks and hit her back using his hands and legs. Some translucent energy waves would appear in the air every time they exchanged attacks.
Angele was caught off guard, he hit a tree when he was stepping back and the tree was knocked down.
Stones and mud gathered on his right feet. He looked like a heavy robot that was trying to kick the woman.
It sounded like something exploded between the two. The white energy waves expanded in all angles.
The energy waves disappeared after traveling for about five meters in the air. The trees in the effective range were all cut down.
Angele’s arms were covered with the wounds and the flesh in the wounds was removed. However, his wounds were recovering at full speed and the flesh quickly grew back.
“Why are you going so hard on me?” He chuckled. “I was just curious. I won’t do any harm.”
The masked woman was kicked in the waist. She put her left hand on a tree and her right hand on her stomach. The woman was breathing heavily while staring at Angele with tears in her eyes.
“I won’t let you… touch… him…” She was trying her best to speak but her voice was hoarse and her dialect sounded a bit strange. It felt like that she did not like talking too much. Also, there was blood spurting out of her mouth.
Angele straightened his back and looked at the woman. “Are you here to protect that man? What’s your relationship with him? “There was still a smile on his face. “Also, don’t lie, I hate it when people lie. I’ll kill them all if you don’t tell me the truth.”
The woman coughed several times.
“He’s… my… young brother…” she slowly responded.
Angele did not respond to her words. A red glow appeared around his eyes and reached to the woman in black with his right hand.
He released an invisible energy wave.
However, the energy wave was blocked by an invisible barrier when it reached the woman.
“Huh?” Angele strengthened the energy wave and released more energy waves.
However, all the energy waves were blocked by the barrier.
‘It means that her bloodline is stronger than my scorpion woman’s bloodline…’ Angele checked the information related to the bloodline.
‘Don’t tell me the level of your bloodline is higher than my ancient bloodline.’
He could not believe the result. The son of the sun, the single-eyed giant, and the scorpion woman, they all had strong ancient bloodlines. The bloodline of scorpion woman could help him check his target’s memory and travel through the realms. It was one of the rarest bloodlines one could find.
If the level of a bloodline was higher than another, its bloodline power would also be stronger, and it would not be impacted by the bloodline powers of the bloodlines at lower levels.
“Woman, what kind of bloodline do you have? You’re weak but your bloodline is strong.” The red light around Angele’s eyes got intense.
The masked woman stared at him calmly.
“Your bloodline… is not… from the ancestor…” she responded slowly.
“Ancestor? You mean your bloodline is from one of the ancestors?” Angele’s expression turned serious. People with bloodline power feared the ones with bloodlines at higher levels.
Their talent ability would be useless when the opponent had the stronger ability.
Angele looked at the woman, he suddenly had the urge to kill her.
‘If I wasn’t close to Siva State, I could’ve gone for bloodlines at higher levels… Sadly, it’s too late for me to do that…’
The woman was weak and it would not help even if he extracted the bloodline from her body.
With the help of the Nightmare Realm’s realm power, the bloodline level problem was not critical for him. The woman had a strong bloodline but she needed a lot more time to improve and it should not be a problem. The only way for her to improve at a faster rate was to get the help from the realm power of her own realm but she needed to be extremely lucky to do that. Angele wanted to know if the ancestor of her bloodline was still alive, that was his only concern.
Angele thought for a while and decided not to kill the woman.
“My bloodline is one level below yours, however, you’re too weak. You need to reach my power level to defeat a legendary knight from the church,” Angele responded in a low voice. “To be honest, I’m interested in you and your brother’s bloodline. If you need help with a serious injury, you can talk to me, I’ll cure you for a price.” Angele’s smile looked kind and attractive.
He approached the woman and released some green light, the light quickly surrounded the woman’s waist.
Several seconds later, the woman stood up and checked her waist. She could not believe what just happened, she did not even feel a thing when the green light was absorbed by her body.
“This one is free, I only fixed your bones and muscles so you still need to rest. Also, take some herbal medicine, I’m sure you can find that.” Angele thought for a second and continued, “You have the bloodline power so it means that you’re an enemy of the church, right? Anyway, go back and have some rest. No one knows what happened here, I handled it using my illusions.”
Angele waved his right hand, turned around, and headed to the camp. The woman hesitated for a second and walked to the two people that fainted on the ground.
Angele turned his head around and glanced at them.
‘An ancestor’s bloodline… Maybe it’ll lead me to Siva State…’
