Chapter 588: Bones (1)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
Angele took the stomach out of the other monster’s body as well and sealed it with a gel-like substance. He coated the stomach with the bone ashes and threw it into his mirror.
He organized the items he was carrying and stood up. Angele decided to carry the two greatswords on his back.
He checked the mirror and noticed it was almost full.
‘The mirror is almost full… I didn’t think it was possible…’
He glanced at the white wall one final time and started advancing again. He decided to keep flying.
‘Where did these two monsters come from?’ He checked the surroundings carefully.
The tunnel was deadly silent. He checked the clock as he flew, but the time unit was still extremely small. It seemed like his body size was still the same, nothing changed after he shrank.
He kept flying until the biochip told him that it was food time. Angele landed on the ground and started resting. The only way to check time here was by checking the biochip’s clock.
Another month passed.
There was no day and night in the tunnel. Angele did not encounter other monsters after that day, but he found several more wooden frames on the ground.
It seemed like the wooden frames were also from the white doors in the wall.
Angele checked the wooden frames and the wall, he was still trying to find an entrance, but nothing worked and he decided not to waste time on it.
The bones and items on the ground were getting stronger as he proceeded….
One year later…
A dot of yellow light was flying in the dark tunnel at full speed, leaving a light trail behind.
Minutes later, the yellow light dot slowed down and landed on the ground. It was Angele, who was covered in white dust.
His leather armor, skin, and hair were all coated with white ashes. No one would know what the original color of his outfit was.
He landed on the ground without any problem and stepped on the white bones. Angele crouched and knocked on the bones he just found. The bones looked like they were from a spider.
It almost sounded like he was knocking on a piece of wood.
“That’s much harder than I expected… The bones here were probably from the creatures with the power of rank 3 wizards… After so many years, those bones are still strong…” He looked at the area ahead, all he could see were bones.
The air here still stank.
Angele noticed that there were countless scratches on the walls.
He rubbed the walls and noticed that the scratches were thin. It seemed like the scratches were left on the walls unintentionally.
Some of the scratches on the left formed a large character but Angele was not sure what it meant.
The character had the size of a human’s head and it looked like a “5” that was upside down.
Angele removed the dust from the surface of the character so that he could have a better view of it.
“I can feel that… there’s something going on here…”
Angele’s eyes were surrounded by a red glow; he closed his eyes and slowly put his fingers on the character.
A strange message was sent into Angele’s mind by some remaining mentality wave.
“Anco… Misubu… I conquered the land because it’s endless. I conquered the sky because it’s also endless. Everything in this world is my son… I advance because I’ll never look back…’
A deep voice echoed in Angele’s mind; it felt like the voice was whispering to his soul. A creature with a weak soul might just kneel after hearing the voice because the voice was magical.
Angele snorted and released some dark smoke. There were white masks rolling in the smoke, they started singing in the air.
“Are you trying to take over my mind using a random picture? Arrogant!”
Raising his hand, a large shadow of a monster scorpion behind him.
The masks were just repeating the same sentence.
“I’m Lord of Terror…”
Angele’s hand was surrounded by the shadow of a claw and slowly pressed on the wall.
The shadow of the scorpion claw was glowing, however, it seemed like the power inside the strange character was also strong.
Angele’s expression changed.
“It has been years but the power is still strong… This thing almost had the same power level as me!”
The symbol on the wall exploded. Countless cracks appeared on the wall, and the strange force field also disappeared.
The claw shadow slowly disappeared from Angele’s hand and he carefully pressed on the symbol.
Although he won, his expression was still serious.
‘This is the tunnel to a strong realm… Based on the analysis result from Zero, the symbol’s over 2000 years old! A weakened mentality wave that’s 2000 years old almost had the same power level as mine; the one who left the symbol must be extremely strong!’ Angele realized that there must be a lot of strong beings in the Lost Realm.
He checked the area ahead, it was still endless darkness. It felt like he would never reach the end of the tunnel.
“I found someone who was as strong as me here, which means…”
He inhaled deeply and tried his best to calm down.
“The bones on the ground are getting stronger and stronger. I assume that I’m getting close to the end of the tunnel. I wonder what the Lost Realm looks like…”
He glanced at the wall again and found several more items in the bones. He absorbed all the elemental power from the items and started flying again.
However, the path was still dark.
The two white walls of the tunnel were moving backward in his sight and there were white ashes splashing in the air.
Suddenly, Angele stopped moving and floated over some large bones.
He opened his mouth but failed to spit out a word. His throat was dry and he was having trouble breathing.
The dead body on the ground was over three meters tall, there were twisted spikes on his shoulders and head.
It was a giant who was sitting on the ground, leaning against the wall. It seemed like he was just resting before he died.
Angele’s expression changed several times. He looked at the giant’s bones and exhaled slowly.
‘This big guy is the one who left the symbol on the wall…’
He noticed that the remaining mentality wave of the giant was the same as the one he found from the symbol.
‘How did a strong being like him die? He wasn’t injured and there was no battle here… How did he die?!’
Angele realized that Bone Tunnel might be more dangerous than he’d thought. The giant had the same power level as his refined true form but he just died here like a nobody.
Angele was one of the strongest beings among the realms he had traveled but things had changed.
“I need to check his bones now so I can find out the truth…”
Blue light dots flashed in his eyes, he landed by the bones and released two rays of blue light from his eyes. He scanned the giant’s bones.
‘No damage detected on the bones. No remaining soul detected. Reason of death: Unknown. Chance of natural death: 72%.’
The result was a bit surprising.
‘For strong beings like us, we can live at least 100 thousand years… I don’t think he died because he was too old…’
Suddenly, Angele noticed that something happened behind him so he quickly turned around.
A white wooden door appeared on the wall behind him, but he had no idea when it happened.
The door was tightly closed and the bronze handle of the door was rusty.
When Angele was still looking at the bronze handle; the handle started moving. It felt like someone was trying to open the door from the other side.
*PA PA PA*
The handle moved but the door was not opened. It seemed like the one on the other side was getting nervous and the handle was moving faster than before.
The noise made by the handle was loud in the quiet tunnel.
Angele stood in front of the door quietly and watched the handle move.
About two minutes later.
The handle finally stopped moving, it seemed like the one from the other side gave up. The noise disappeared and the tunnel became quiet again.
Suddenly, Angele grabbed the handle and twisted it hard.
The door opened.
Gentle sunlight shined upon Angele’s body, face, and long hair.
Narrowing his eyes, Angele peeked through the door.
Behind the door was a golden sky and illuminated clouds looked like well-organized staircases.
Angele walked closer to the door and checked the area.
It seemed like the door was floating in the sky and there was nothing around t. The golden sky was endless.
The white door just stood over the clouds and it was the only thing here. A lonely wooden door.
Angele wanted to move his head into the door.
His head hit an invisible barrier.
Angele hesitated and raised his hand.
An invisible barrier blocked the door and he could not enter. The barrier was like glass in a window.
He tapped on the barrier slightly, it was hard, cold, and smooth.
Angele released some red light and coated his fingertips with it. He then knocked on the barrier again.
The barrier was not damaged at all.
“What does it mean? I can open the door but I can’t enter it.”
Angele hesitated for a second and returned to the dead giant. He crouched and found a black notebook by the giant’s waist.
It was an item he saw when he was scanning the bones.
Angele opened the notebook slowly. The paper was covered with characters like the one he found on the wall.
The white characters lined up on the black paper.
Angele rubbed the characters one by one using his fingers.
The messages stored in the characters were transferred into his mind slowly.
“Bone Tunnel, the tunnel to the Lost Realm. This is the Bone Realm, the Bone Realm is the Lost Realm. The Lost Realm is the tunnel. I’m deep in the dimension maze, the time and space here are a mess but nothing will stop me…”
