Chapter 579: Rescue (2)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
After the day it rained, Fra never asked the question again; she behaved as nothing had happened. Angele decided to sleep in the tent and Fra would sleep in the cart.
If Fra needed to go to town and purchase daily supplies, she would go to the tent and sleep by Angele’s side.
Also, Angele finally made some progress on the analysis of the strange force field. Six percent of the analysis was completed.
Time flew. Several months passed in the blink of an eye.
Angele explored the tomb on the other side of the river—the evil souls and dead bodies were all removed by him. He used the dead bodies to feed the fish. Angele modified the tomb and it looked like just like a normal cave now. Fra also helped him clean the place.
They broke the cart into parts and covered them using the tent. They then cleaned the camp and moved into the cave.
Heli and Cynthia visited Angele several times during the time. They asked Angele for help again; their injuries were almost fatal.
Angele also saw a new face in their team, a muscular man named Van. They said that he was an inheritor of an ancient race.
They told Angele that it was a holy knight named Rayton who injured them. They were defeated by Rayton many times.
Angele could see hatred in their eyes as they talked about Rayton.
After Angele moved into the cave, they visited him several more times. Fatal injuries almost became a common thing for them.
In the bedroom of the cave, there was a black oil lamp on the wall. The flame in the lamp brightened up the whole bedroom but the light was a bit dim.
Angele lay in the middle of the bed; he spent four days studying the strange force field. He got so tired that he had to take a rest so he set up a simple rune circle and fell asleep.
Fra was right next to him—the girl was crying in dreams again. She was not restricted by the rune circle that Angele set up and it seemed like she was scared of living in a cave that was previously a tomb; she did not want to sleep alone so she decided to stay with Angele during the night.
Someone knocked on the wooden door quickly. The noise was loud and deep.
Some invisible smoke appeared in the cave when the door was knocked on. The smoke quickly formed a black circle and rotated around Angele’s body.
A chilling feel climbed up Angele’s spine.
He opened his eyes slowly.
*BAM BAM BAM*
The noise got louder.
Fra opened her eyes as well; she was still sleepy.
Angele shook his head speechlessly—he just realized that Fra was in his room again. He sat up and got off the bed, putting on a gray robe. He opened the door, walked upstairs, and unlocked the door.
The chilling air entered the cave right away. There was a heavy rain going on and he saw three people in black cloaks standing in front of the door.
“Sorry, we have to visit you again…” The black cloak in the front raised his head. It was Heli, his face was covered with blood.
Heli suddenly leaned forward and fell to the ground. He rolled down the stairs and stopped after hitting the floor. Heli’s eyes were barely open, his hands were trembling, and he could not even get up.
“Andre, you know my sister, right?”
The other two people almost fell to the ground as well. Angele supported them with his arms and checked the situation outside. The sun was still rising and there was no one else around. He helped them get inside and quickly locked the door.
He dragged Cynthia and Van to Heli. The three lined up on the floor.
Angele crouched and questioned, “What happened to your sister? I assume it’s Rayton again.”
“Yeah, they captured my sister… Can you help me?” Heli responded. He wanted to grab Angele’s hand but he could barely move.
“I’m not severely injured this time, I’m just tired.” It seemed like Heli finally learned the truth. “I didn’t know that my sister had always been protecting me until today…”
Angele smiled. “So, your sister asked you to come to me?”
“Yeah.” Heli stared at Angele, looking confused. “I don’t understand why he doesn’t want to meet you. I’m always the one that does the talking. However, he said that if you can help me this time, he would consider talking to you face to face.”
“He said he would consider?” Angele shook his head, he was not concerned. “There’s one thing that you didn’t get right. I helped you because of you and your sister, not him. Also, maybe it’s an honor for others to meet him in person but I don’t care. It won’t make me feel better if I can talk to him in person.”
Heli looked at Angele. He was not sure how he should respond.
“So, you already know who he is?”
“It’s not important,” Angele interrupted. “How should I help you?”
“I don’t really know.” There was a bitter smile on Heli’s face. “What can you do?”
Angele rubbed his chin and thought for a second.
“Have some rest and talk to me later.” He stood up and headed to a room on the other side.
Heli lay on the ground.
“People all have things they want, all of them! I’ll meet him if he’s honest.” A cold voice echoed in his ears.
“Andre helped us so much, don’t you think he already met the requirements?” Heli was speechless.
“No,” the voice responded, “I said I might meet him in person because of you… Unless…”
“What? Just tell me. I’ll fulfill your request if you can meet Andre face to face.” There was dedication in Heli’s eyes.
Half an hour later…
In a room with basic medical equipment.
The stone bricks and the floor in the room were all yellow. It was a small room with four white beds for the patients. There was a counter, a table, and some chairs beside the beds.
Heli was sitting by a bed. He glanced at Angele and looked at the brown surface of the table.
There were white scissors, a silver ball, a red triangular card, and a brown metal ring on the table.
“The situation is complicated this time, we need to rescue the hostage from the church. You’re a nice guy, Heli, so I’m going to give those items to you…” Angele pointed at the four items on the table.
He grabbed the white scissors. It almost looked like the scissors were made of plaster.
“This is a special tool that can fix one’s damaged muscles but it can only be used twice. When I locate the damaged muscles, I’ll stab the scissor into the muscle, and the scissors will fix everything for you quickly. Also, if you’re severely injured, I just need to stab the scissors into your heart slightly, and you’ll not take any damage for one glass hour. All the damage you take during the period will be reflected after the time passed so you must be careful when using it.”
Angele moved the scissors slightly and made some noise.
“It’s an incredible item…” Heli looked at the scissors, a hint of greed in his eyes.
Angele picked up the second item: an egg-sized silver ball.
“This is a special explosive I created, I only have one. Hit the ball on something hard and throw it at your enemy in three seconds. I modified this thing so it shouldn’t hurt the one who throws the ball, however, you still need to be careful as it’s very powerful…” Angele put down the ball carefully.
Heli was not impressed. He had seen many strong explosives but he knew that he could still use the ball when retreating.
Angele noticed the change of Heli’s expression and laughed inwardly. When Heli found out that the effective range of the explosion was over 100 meters and the explosion could deal over 1000 degrees of damage, he would be shocked.
Normal holy knights would be killed instantly if they were caught in the explosion. Angele had fought against a legendary knight; without the holy light, a legendary knight would still be hurt.
Also, Angele already learned that Victor was just an average legendary knight and was slightly weaker than Rayton but the ball would still work on normal holy knights.
“Alright, the third item… This and the ring.” Angele picked the two items up.
“They are two items, right?” Heli was a bit surprised.
“You can use them together.” Angele chuckled. “If you ignite the card, the smoke from the burning card will double your speed and strength. The effect will last a fifth of one glass hour. Also, if you have the ring with you when burning the card, the smoke will double the recovery speed and defense ability of the people around you. The effective time will also be extended to three glass hours.”
Heli’s sight locked onto the ring and the card after hearing Angele’s explanation.
Angele carefully handed the four items to Heli.
“They are yours now. Rest for a couple days and you can start the mission.”
Heli grabbed the items carefully and stood up.
He suddenly kneeled in front of Angele to show his gratitude. “Thank you for your help!”
Angele did not expect Heli to do that, he quickly helped Heli to get up.
“I have my purpose. If you succeed, please let me extract some more blood from your body. I won’t do that this time so you can save your strength for the mission.
He looked at Heli and scanned the man’s body using the biochip.
Heli’s bloodline was much stronger than before. Angele already created the fourth mentality crystal after he absorbed the bloodline essence the last time. However, he had not engraved any spell onto the crystal and the bloodline essence no longer worked after he created the crystal.
Angele guessed that maybe Heli’s bloodline was still too weak.
What improved his bloodline was combat—his bloodline would be strengthened every time he survived a battle. Also, Angele noticed that Heli’s bloodline was about to break the limit.
The “He” Heli talked about was the other persona inside his body, it was a combination of his memory and personality. The persona was called Misfortune Scale, however, Angele was not interested in it. The only thing he wanted was Heli’s strengthened bloodline after Heli broke the limit.
He took out all the items that Heli could use from the mirror so the rescue mission would succeed.
“I’m going to have some rest for now.”
Heli packed the items up, turned around, and left the room.
Angele sat in the chair. The blue light dots were still flashing in front of his eyes.
“It’s about time… If he can survive the mission, it’s highly likely that he’ll break past the limit…”
