The white light released from Rayton’s mouth turned into a light arrow and flew at Angele’s head. The noise almost sounded like thunder.
The trees and grass around were all brightened up by the light.
However, the light arrow landed on a palm.
The white light dots splashed in the air.
Angele lowered his left hand and the black ball on his palm started expanding.
He raised the black ball and the air around him started twisting. There was black smoke coming out of his ears and mouth, merging into the black ball.
The black ball floated in the air as it kept moving up and down.
The black ball soared into the sky.
After the loud explosion, the black smoke expanded in all directions and covered the crescent moon. There were countless shadows under the clean moonlight.
The whole sky above the mountains was blocked by the black smoke and there was no light.
A strong and evil power was moving in the darkness. It felt like the whole area was soaked in black ink.
The horses under the knights started neighing and panicking. Although the knights tried to calm them down, the horses were still trying to escape.
“The moonlight faded away…” The female leader raised her head and looked at the black smoke.
In a mountain somewhere far from the area.
“A wizard… This is the true power of a wizard!”
The old wizards trembled and kneeled. Their vision blurred and they were all staring at the black smoke on the far side.
“The ancestors haven’t given up… they haven’t!” someone shouted.
The wizards cried in happiness and the shelter got noisy quickly.
In the snow covered mountains.
“What’s going on?”
“There are dark clouds in the sky. It might be the wizards again!”
In the forest, a knight rubbed the ring on his hand. White light flashed on the surface of the ring but faded away almost instantly.
“Wait, there’s something wrong with my ring. Did the people from Holy Armor give me the wrong thing?”
“My ring has a problem too!”
“Leader, mine too!”
The knights tried to activate their holy rings; however, the rings were not effective at all. The knights got nervous, they kept trying to activate the rings but nothing happened.
The female leader raised her head and looked at the dark clouds. She suddenly recalled the words an old wizard she slain said.
‘You don’t understand… A legendary wizard’s power is much stronger than your holy power! Only the power you can control is the true power… The true power can change rules of the world…’
“Someone prevented us from communicating with God!” The leader lowered her head. She could feel the pressure coming from the source of the dark clouds. “The power is so terrifying that it’s changing the rules of this world! Everyone! Follow my order! We need to move!” Raising her hand, she pointed at the source of the dark clouds.
Rayton was blown away. He rolled several times on the ground, leaving a trail behind. He tried to support himself with his hands and get up.
However, Angele’s feet already landed on his back.
The black smoke kept coming out of Angele’s body as he was standing on Rayton’s body.
“Without the protection of your god, you’re nothing…” He looked at Rayton and noticed that the man was still trying to activate the holy ring.
“Don’t waste your time.” Angele’s face was covered by the black smoke. “I can easily deactivate this thing, it’s not your true power.”
“You… Who are you?!” Rayton inhaled deeply and shouted, “You’re no wizard!”
His eyes were wide open, his armor and bones were making noises under Angele’s feet. It felt like there was a mountain on his back and he could barely breathe under the pressure.
Rayton tried his best to breathe, however, his sight blurred due to the lack of oxygen. Without the holy power, he had no way to fight back.
“You’ll be punished! You heretics!” he shouted like crazy.
Angele heard the word and chuckled.
“Well, what if I’m a god too…”
Angele’s boots pierced through Rayton’s back. The man’s flesh and bones broke into pieces. His blood leaked out of his armor and splashed on the ground.
The light faded away from Rayton’s eyes. His muscles loosened and he looked like a pile of mud. Rayton was eliminated.
“His soul is gone too… How pathetic…”
Angele looked to the left and jumped forward. He quickly disappeared into the forest.
Several minutes later
Two people stepped out of the bushes on the left. The one on the left had a strong body and the one on the right was slim. They were Van and Cynthia.
“I’ve never seen a sky like this. I wonder what happened. It’s weird,” Cynthia spoke in a low voice.
“I guess it’s about to rain,” Van responded. “It’s common in my hometown…” He suddenly stopped talking as they saw a dead body of a holy knight on the ground. The light from their torch illuminated the dead body.
“Wait… That’s Rayton…” Cynthia would never forget the knight that injured him numerous times.
“It can’t be. It’s probably a random knight that had a similar face…” Van was suspicious.
“Rayton is like a monster that never dies. He is fast and strong. There’s no way that he would die at a place like this.”
“You might be right…” Cynthia agreed.
They walked to the dead body and observed it carefully. They found two long tentacles on his chin.
“Maybe Rayton had a brother?”
They exchanged eye contact and their faces turned pale. If someone could kill Rayton, he would be able to kill them easily.
Suddenly, they heard noise coming from the bushes and a team of holy knights appeared. They were holding torches in their hands and their leader was a female knight.
The knights saw the dead body of Rayton immediately, however, they could not believe that Rayton was dead.
“Rayton?” The female leader confirmed the dead knight’s identity through the ring on his finger.
“How’s that even possible!” she shouted as fear filled up her mind.
She drew a scimitar and stared at the two people standing by the dead body.
The knights all drew their scimitars in fear. They were not here to find the one who killed Rayton, they just wanted a way to relieve their stress.
Angele was traveling in the dark forest, heading back to the cave. Most of the smoke had disappeared from his face and the smoke in the sky was also returning into his body.
He passed through the trees and quickly found the wooden door in front of him.
He walked to the wooden door and pushed it open.
The wooden door slowly opened and the dim yellow light illuminated Angele’s pale face. All the dark smoke returned into his body; he walked into the cave, stepped down the stairs, and headed to the medical room.
The room was by the end of the hallway. When he arrived there, Fra was having a nap in front of the door.
Angele did not wake Fra up; he carefully pushed the door open and entered the room.
Inside the room, the green cocoon was much smaller than before and Angele could see the shape of Heli’s body. The room was filled up with green smoke—the smoke was from Heli’s strange but weak bloodline power.
Angele checked the smoke and noticed the power of an ancestor in the weak bloodline. Also, the power was much stronger than the power he detected before Heli broke the limit.
He walked to the cocoon and sat down with his legs crossed.
Closing his eyes, Angele started absorbing the essence of the ancestor’s bloodline slowly.
In Angele’s mind, he could see the four mentality crystals in an area that was surrounded by black smoke. The fifth mentality crystal also started solidifying. The fifth mentality crystal was colorless and translucent.
Several hours later.
Angele opened his eyes slowly, but he looked a bit confused.
“It seems like I’ve found the source, but… The fifth mentality crystal started solidifying but this is not the result I wanted.” He felt that he was getting closer to Siva State but he did not know how to proceed. Angele already figured out what the ancestor’s bloodline essence was—it was a power that was stronger than his black smoke.
However, the essence had nothing to do with the ancestor’s eternal power.
Heli’s body suddenly moved. He used his hands to pull off the remaining green cocoon on his body and sat down on the bed. “What just happened…”
“Your bloodline has awakened.” Angele shrugged and stood up. “Your sister still needs some time to heal and your friends should be fine too. Alright, let’s talk about the payment. I need some of your blood again.”
“Again…” Heli put his right hand on his forehead, his face was still pale. “I didn’t use all your items. Can you take it back so you don’t extract too much blood from me?”
“No, it’s yours already,” Angele refused. “Have some rest now, your friends will return to the cave soon I think. Also, I have a good news.”
“What?” Heli was a bit speechless.
“Rayton is dead.”
“Good… Wait, what? Say that again!” Heli finally understood what Angele just said.
“Rayton is dead. The legendary holy knight of the church,” Angele repeated.
“Are you sure it’s Rayton? Not his brother or something?” Heli was shocked. Angele nodded and Heli felt like that he just lost his goal.
“Wait a minute, I need some time…” He stopped Angele from saying anything else, it seemed like he wanted to make sure that he was not daydreaming.
Angele smiled, walked to the door, and looked at Heli, who was still in shock.
