“Whatever… We are closely related anyway…” Becky emphasized the word “related”.
Angele smiled. “Don’t worry, after this ends, I won’t control you using my bloodline power anymore. That’s it.”
“Promise?” Becky was a bit excited.
“Alright, I’ll do that for you then.” Becky grabbed the pouch and held it in hands. “I think you’re not here just for this. I’ll give you some information you might need.”
She tapped on the table.
A thin red barrier appeared around the two but it only stayed there for a second.
“I visited a lot of the church’s buildings, including the one in this city and the capital, however, I’m certain that they are not protected by Light Ancestor. Their power came from the items from Light Ancestor; I think Light Ancestor is still sleeping somewhere in the Chaos Realm. That’s all I know. Also…” Becky stopped for a second and continued, “I don’t think it matters even if Light Ancestor knows about the church. Light Ancestor is in the Chaos Realm. That’s far from here, and Light Ancestor won’t be a big problem to you.”
“If you’re telling the truth…” Angele rubbed the cup and started thinking. He quickly checked Becky’s memory using his ability.
He quickly found Becky’s memory of visiting the church’s properties.
“Oh… That’s what you did…”
“You…!” Becky put her hands on the edge of the table and her body was trembling in anger.
“You’re checking my memory again!”
“Don’t you think this is an easy and effective way?” Angele shrugged. “I should probably go collect some more information by myself. They have a church here too, right?”
“Do whatever you want…”
“Sure, thanks for the information.”
Angele stood up and organized his armor. He turned around and walked to the door.
He opened the glass door and left the coffee shop with other customers. It almost looked like he had been here for the drink.
Angele stood on the street and watched the crowd move. He turned to the right and looked around.
There were some white towers by the end of the street. In front of the towers, there were vendors.
Staircases were built on the surface of the towers. Angele could see people in white robes walking on those staircases.
Angele tightened his outfit, went across the street, and headed to the towers.
He walked down the street and quickly found an arched white stone gate in the front. There was a sculpture of a white lion in front of the gate.
The sculpture was well-crafted, it almost looked like a live lion that was sleeping on the ground.
There was no one guarding the gate, there were white robes leaving the gate and entering the valley on the left.
Angele glanced around with his glowing red eyes and released some translucent energy waves.
He smiled and walked to the arched gate, then stood in front of the lion sculpture, but none of the white robes around noticed his presence. The white robes were just chatting or reading the documents in their hands. They were all heading to the valley on the left.
“Katie, Monk wants to have lunch with you. He’ll tell you about the next mission,” a female white robe was talking with her friend.
“Is that so? Sure, I’ll go meet him.”
They passed by Angele and Angele leaned to the left slightly so that they would not run into him.
Suddenly, Angele glanced at the girl named Katie and found a white V-shaped pattern on her forehead. The pattern was releasing some weak holy power. The holy power was modifying the girl’s soul and body constantly.
‘That’s how the holy power changes their thoughts, I guess…’ Angele observed the pattern for a while but he was not interested.
He started walking to the gate again.
Suddenly, the stone lion’s eyes opened and it felt like it just roared. Angele could hear the voice in his mind.
He stopped, glanced at the stone lion, and flicked his finger.
The stone lion’s body trembled but it stopped moving quickly and everything returned to normal.
Angele smiled and entered the arched gate. He stepped on a white path with grass on both sides. He was not interested in the random buildings around so he headed directly toward the white towers.
He entered the tallest white tower and then a spacious, bright hall. There were rays of white light coming from the window on the right, and every object in the hall was illuminated by the light.
The hall was filled up with white robes—they were sitting on the padded long chairs and most of them looked young. They were all praying with their eyes closed.
There was a black platform in front of the chairs with a golden cabinet on it. The cabinet was tightly closed and there were more than ten locks on it. There was also a thick metal chain around it. It seemed like the item inside was extremely important.
Angele floated in the air and flew to the cabinet. He stopped about half a meter away from it.
‘This must be the item Becky talked about—they can absorb the remaining power of Light Ancestor using the world stone with this item. I guess Light Ancestor has never known that some of his remaining power was used by the church…’
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes as he checked the cabinet and shook his head. He turned to the left and found a wall of leather paper.
It seemed like the wall was used for general announcements. The paper on the walls was waving slightly in the air due to the wind.
“Promoted Holy Knights”
“List of Stolen Treasures and Punishments”
“Member List of the Meeting in Sharon”
“New Member Contest and Events”
So many random things were on the wall.
Angele quickly checked the paper and found something interesting.
“Order: Suspend all actions regarding the wizard and bloodline inheritor hunting mission. All holy knights shall report back to the divisions they belong to. Further decisions will be announced later.”
Angele pursed his lips into a smile.
‘So, they decided to hide the truth; they don’t even want to tell the members that a legendary knight is killed… I should probably make things harder for all of you…’
With a flick of his finger, he released a ray of red light into the golden cabinet on the platform.
The red light turned into liquid and merged into the white holy power inside the cabinet. The red liquid expanded and slowly dissolved in the white holy power.
The bloodline power had a hidden message in it, and the message was delivered to other holy cabinets in different churches through a certain channel.
The Pope and the bishops would learn about the message when they opened the cabinets.
‘If Light Ancestor was sharing his power with the church, there would be nothing I could do. However, as the church was just collecting the remaining power that was released by Light Ancestor, things will be much easier for me.’
Angele looked at the painting on the ceiling. It was about people praying to a ray of holy light.
‘It’s about time to end my peaceful life and focus on studying the Lost Realm.’ He thought that he already had the right to enter the Lost Realm since he was very close to Siva State.
‘Although the church has the holy power, they won’t be able to hunt down the wizards like they’ve done before as long as I’m still around.’
Saving the wizards here was never his intention; the holy power was from the remaining power of Light Ancestor, it would expel the energy particles and make people who used the holy power hate the wizards.
In other words, the conflict between the wizards and the church would never end unless Angele destroyed the church completely, however, there was no point for him to do that. The remaining power of Light Ancestor was endless; if he eliminated the church, another organization to find the power would appear sooner or later, so the only thing he needed to do was make sure that the church knew about his presence.
‘The power came from a dimension fissure; it’s the remaining power of Light Ancestor, so it’s highly possible that the dimension fissure leads to the Chaos Realm…’
Mortals were like ants to Light Ancestor, so Light Ancestor would not do anything if mortals approached the dimension fissure. However, if it was a large insect or a bird, the situation would be different.
Angele was like a large insect to Light Ancestor; although he was still weaker than Light Ancestor, Light Ancestor might still wake up.
If he got too close to the dimension fissure, Light Ancestor might try to eliminate him.
He was not confident that he could survive a fight against Light Ancestor even when Light Ancestor was severely injured.
‘I should choose an easier path…’ He decided not to check the dimension fissure. ‘The Lost Realm connected multiple strong realms, including the Chaos Realm. I can travel to the Chaos Realm using this method. My analysis should be completed soon…
‘Where should I be when entering the Lost Realm…’ Angele glanced around.
The white robes were still praying and there was an old priest singing in the hall.
‘Well, this is actually a good spot.’
He noticed that the dimension was unstable here due to the energy waves released by the world stone. If he decided to enter the Lost Realm here, the pressure from the realm power would be easier to handle.
He was carrying the portal to the Lost Realm with him, so he could enter the portal from anywhere he wanted.
Angele took out a small box from the mirror. He opened the box, and some chilling air was released from it right away.
There were many ice blocks in the box that surrounded a white plate in the center. There was some black dust on the white plate.
‘Zooming in…’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears right away.
‘Adjusting the magnifier…
‘Lost Realm’s force field detected… Checking the analysis progression…
‘Force field completely analyzed. Opening the world portal…’
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes as he stared at the black dust on the plate.
