The Wizard World - Chapter 589
Chapter 589: Bones (2)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
“Every 1000 years, I write down a message, and the time has come again. There’s no energy supply, no food supply, and the only thing I can do is to seal myself. I can’t find another way to survive. I’ve already forgotten the reason why I entered the Lost Realm.
“I don’t remember the time but I’m certain that my memory is correct. I’ve been here about 300 years ago which means I’m in the maze again… I conquered everything… Will this be my end?
“I finally found the truth, this is the intestine of the world, the dimension maze. No creature leaves the intestine before everything is turned into nutrients… The realm consumes strong creatures to survive… There’s no easy way out…
“I just opened another door, same monsters, same endings. They are just endless…”
Angele’s finger stopped at the last character.
He already turned several pages and read all the characters.
‘The abandoned intestine of the world? A dimension maze?’ Angele had never heard of something like that.
He checked the giant’s bones again but did not find any valuable items. It felt like the notebook was the only thing the giant had.
Angele found a line that was engraved into the ground on the right side of the giant.
He pressed on the line and received another message through the mentality wave.
“Keep moving forward!”
Angele could feel the dedication from the remaining mentality wave.
Angele sighed with mixed emotions and bowed to the giant’s bones.
“You’re a respectable being, at least you did whatever you could to pursue your goal.”
He checked the surroundings and noticed that there were far fewer bones here; he could see the ground under the bones clearly.
Angele tried to contact the Nightmare Realm, however, he could not find any trace of it. That meant that he could not teleport back to the Nightmare Realm.
All the dimension power was restricted in this area.
He turned around and looked at the golden sky behind the door.
He found some strange runes on the frame of the door. It felt like someone engraved the runes into it; the runes looked like the characters on the giant’s notebook.
Raising his hand, Angele rubbed the runes slightly.
“Three million years ago. Cloud Realm.”
A message came from the runes.
‘Three million years ago, what does it mean? The sky behind the door is a random realm from three million years ago?’ Angele’s brow furrowed. ‘This Bone Tunnel is just confusing…’
The wooden door slowly closed and Angele was pushed away by an invisible force, he could no longer move any closer to the door.
The door fully closed and the golden light disappeared. The wooden frame detached itself from the wall, fell to the ground, and broke into pieces.
Angele’s fireball became the only source of light in the tunnel again.
The dim light was nowhere close to the bright light from the sky.
Angele started searching the bones again. Only two other skeletons had the same power level as the giant but there was nothing around them. He assumed that their items decayed over the years.
‘Also, why does the realm turn everything into nutrients…?’ Angele stood up from the last skeleton he examined. ‘Anyway, I need to keep moving, I’ll find the answer sooner or later…’
He glanced at the giant’s skeleton for one final time and started flying again.
About half an hour later, he found another white door on the wall.
He slowly landed in front of the door and put his hand on the handle without any hesitation.
The door opened.
Behind the door was a room furnished full of paintings and with a blood-red carpet. The engravings on the golden walls looked like roses and the paintings were hanging in the air.
The paintings had different themes: he saw a castle in the forest, a small house on a snowy mountain, a grass plain, and some abandoned city.
Angele stood by the entrance and glanced at the paintings. There were around 20 paintings and all of them looked nice.
Strangely, he found a red skeleton of a centaur in the center of the room.
There was a black spear in the skeleton’s arm and a silver shell was hanging from its neck.
Angele walked into the room slowly.
The centaur skeleton slowly stood up and some white smoke came out of its empty eyes.
The centaur skeleton pulled the spear out of its arm and opened its mouth. It seemed like the skeleton was trying to roar.
A strong wind blew over Angele’s body and his long hair was flying in the air.
Angele’s expression changed, he took one step back and heard some light noise. He noticed that the door behind was closed.
“Is this the process of turning me into nutrients?” He turned around and looked at the skeleton.
The skeleton raised the spear; there were black electric pulses sparking around the weapon. The electric pulses gathered on the tip of the spear as a large pair of shadow wings appeared behind the skeleton.
The air in the room became sticky, it felt like the air was turning into jelly.
The centaur held the spear tight and threw it forward.
The black spear flew toward Angele with the black electric pulses around it, however, it suddenly stopped in the air. The power on the spear was getting stronger and stronger. It felt like the spear was gathering energy.
Finally, the black spear started moving again—it turned into a black string and flew at Angele like lightning.
Angele did not think the spear would be a problem to him, but the power level of the spear quickly passed the power level of a rank 5 wizard and it was still growing stronger.
Angele’s expression changed.
‘Earth!’ he shouted in the mind.
Pieces of black stones and mud appeared on his body. The stones and mud gathered on the surface of his skin. His height and body size were increasing at full speed.
Angele quickly created two dark greatswords in his hands and slashed forward. The greatswords soared through the air.
They hit the flying spear without any problem.
The two greatswords were destroyed. Angele’s body leaned back due to the impact, and the earth armor on his body was cracked.
However, he successfully blocked the spear, which slowly returned to the skeleton’s hand.
“Oblivion!” the skeleton shouted using the mentality wave.
The skeleton hit the floor using the tip of the spear and released some black energy waves. The energy waves were expanding in all directions.
The energy waves moved toward Angele and surrounded his feet. They almost formed a circle around him.
The skeleton raised the spear and pointed it at Angele.
*CHI CHI CHI CHI*
Countless black spears appeared in the air around Angele’s body and all stepped into his body, turning him into a hedgehog.
Angele was hit by the spears after he recovered from the impact, he had no time to think and activated the second battle style when the spears broke through his mud armor.
All the black spears were deflected and quickly disappeared into the air.
Angele turned into a strong lion man with dark-red skin within seconds; there was a pair of wings on his back, and his muscular body looked like a well-crafted stone statue. There was some thick dark fur around his neck.
‘My second battle style… It has been a while since the last time I activated it…’ Angele’s three battle styles were Earth, Lion, and Light. They all had their advantages; with the three battle styles, he could maximize his power output without transforming into the refined true form.
Earth gave him incredible defensive and recovery abilities. He could easily handle a damage spell from a rank 5 wizard and barely needed any energy to activate this style.
Lion would strengthen his skin and muscles. It would also increase his strength and speed. He would be able to handle the creatures with the same power level as rank 6 or rank 7 wizards. He could also create around ten lion men when the style was activated. The lion men shadows were improved based on the lion men Angele could summon.
The third battle style was called Light, it was the final form that he created based on his understanding of Siva State. He had never activated it yet. He thought that Light was a stronger form than his refined true form but he could not handle the cost of using it at the moment.
Angele turned into a lion man and created a greatsword that was covered with burning flames in hand. There were red and blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
Angele started creating shadows of lion men. He created two at first, and the two lion men quickly turned into eight.
The eight lion men formed a circle around the centaur skeleton.
Two of the lion men had green jade stone greatswords in their hands instead of flaming greatswords.
The eight lion men charged at the centaur skeleton and slashed forward from different angles.
The centaur skeleton raised its hooves and stomped.
The white energy waves the centaur skeleton released slowed the lion men down.
The centaur skeleton’s wings swang in the air several times as it quickly drew a circle around him using the black spear.
The space was slashed through by the spear and turned into a dark circle that blocked the attacks from different angles.
*BAM BAM BAM*
The lion men were blown away by the impact; five of them were slashed into pieces right away. They fell to the ground and turned into red lava. One of the three remaining lion men threw the green jade stone greatsword at the skeleton.
The green jade stone greatsword hit the tip of the black spear and was deflected right away.
The skeleton suddenly stopped moving, it just stood there with the spear in hand and it seemed like it was ready to block any incoming attack. A large black hole appeared in the center of its chest and continued to expand.
The last three lion men roared and charged at the skeleton again. One of them picked up the green jade stone greatsword on the way.
In the shadow of the room, a ball of red flames was hiding by the red lava on the ground. There was a pair of red eyes in the flames, watching the battle quietly. It was Angele, he turned himself into pure energy.
He created the eight lion men who had the same power level as rank 6 wizards and turned his body into pure fire energy.
‘The second battle style is not working… Using the bloodline to fight relies too much on my talent ability… If I don’t really have a choice, there are no good spells for this situation… The skeleton will win if this continues…’
The black scorpion mark slowly appeared between his brow.
The temperature in the room started increasing rapidly. It increased from 20 degrees Celsius to over 100 degrees Celsius within seconds, but that wasn’t the end. The place was getting hotter and hotter.
