Chapter 599: Huan Ri (2)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
Angele found a random cave and lived in it. He hunted and collected fruits in the morning. The only thing he did during the night was practicing the Snake Palm.
Yun Song learned the basics of the Snake Palm from Yuying Song. Angele used the biochip to analyze the battle system of this world and slowly perfected the Snake Palm.
The cave he was living in was right by the Kalong Ruins. Strangely, he saw many soldiers passing by, but none of them entered the ruins. The people nearby also stayed away from the ruins.
Angele was not sure what the reason was.
The things in this world were changing in his eyes as time passed.
He recovered faster as his body was strengthened, and that was why he started to see the truth of this world. Everything looked similar to the things he saw through the orb.
Most of the creatures in the area were killed by Angele. However, he did not need too much food after his body was strengthened.
It felt like that this world was lying to his eyes and he was not sure if he was seeing illusions.
Two years passed in the blink of an eye.
Angele left the area once during that time and found an old helicopter. He used the helicopter to travel around the area and had many practice matches with other strong Kung Fu masters.
The famous Kung Fu masters in Ming Ta Xing all learned about his name; he recorded many combat skills during the practice matches.
The whole process took him another year to complete.
Finally, three years passed.
Angele stood quietly in front of the Ultimate Training Dojo.
The gate was broken and there were burnt marks everywhere. Angele could see the dried leaves on the ground through the gaps between the gate; the whole place was quite dark.
Angele was standing right in front of the dojo. There were many people passing by, but none of them noticed his presence.
The vendor on the right was playing with his communication device like he did not see Angele.
“So, they can’t even see me anymore.”
He glanced around. The people that passed by had translucent bodies and were all walking in groups. Some of them went through Angele’s body like they were just illusions. Angele could not feel anything when their bodies contacted.
“Finally, you found the truth…”
A voice came from behind.
He turned around and looked at the person calmly.
It was the girl named Huan Ri—she drove Angele to Xuyang years ago. She was standing in the center of the street; there were many people passing by, however, none of them could touch her body.
Huan stared at Angele calmly.
“This is where everything starts, and this is also where everything ends…”
“I was sent into this world. I was confused. This is truly a mysterious place.”
“My power is what keeps this world running… The sky, the sea, the land, everything. I’ve guarded this world for over ten hundred years and didn’t expect that this day would come…” Huan was naked. Her body was clean; it seemed like she did not mind being seen in her current state.
“I think my sister sent you here.”
They just stood there and talked to each other peacefully.
Angele nodded slowly.
“If you’re talking about the old monster from the dimension maze, then you are correct, she sent me into this world and left a mark on my back. The mark will heat up every time the Ball of the Four Seasons is mentioned. I assume she’s telling me that the Ball of the Four Seasons will help me find the truth.”
“I use the Ball of the Four Seasons to support this world. I made sure that everything is the same as before this world collapsed. Time is stopped here.” Huan suddenly smiled. “With my power, everyone is living their happy lives; this is just like a normal world. However, they just don’t know that the world has already collapsed.”
Angele looked at the people that were passing by.
“No, you created a sweet dream for them. They all died when the world collapsed. It was the end of this world. You can’t support this world forever…”
“So what? You’ve experienced this dream too. It’s so real that it doesn’t feel like a dream at all.” Huan pointed at a couple that just passed by.
“They were together before I became an ancestor. Sadly, they died when they tried to help me. I collected their souls and rewrote their memories so that they can live in this new world forever. Don’t you think that this is great? This world collapsed millions of years ago, but you’ve still learned something new. See, even you’re happy with this world.”
Angele looked at the couple and spoke in a light tone, “Are you sure they are happy? If they can live together forever, they will find out sooner or later.”
“Of course they can’t live forever. They will die just like mortals; however, I’ll help them to get together after they grow up and this will last forever. I wanted you to become part of this world, but you found out the truth too early.” Huan sounded a bit depressed.
“Everything felt like coincidences to me,” Angele explained. “I just took over Yun Song’s body and Xiulin suddenly got into trouble. I wanted to go to Xuyang and you suddenly decided to drive me there. You didn’t want me to enter the Kalong Ruins; also, you used Nian to approach me. I disarmed the bomb, but the plane still exploded, and it only took me several minutes to find them. You wanted to turn me into a wandering soul in this gum using my emotions, right?”
“I failed anyway…”
“There were so many things that were wrong in this world. I assume this is your memory and the people in the dojo were your old friends.” Angele took out the orb.
“This is one of the orbs that supported this world. If I break it, a part of this world will collapse, right?”
“Xiulin, Nian, and the other members were all my best friends. What are you going to do now? You’ve found the truth. Are you trying to wake everyone up?” She did not seem worried. She just asked Angele like she was asking a random question.
“What do I want to do?” A strange expression appeared on Angele’s face. “You sister send me into this world because she wanted me to end this madness… Also, your sister is dying.”
With a flick of his finger, he released a red string in the air which quickly turned into a diamond-shaped light screen. The old woman that Angele encountered was displayed on the screen.
She was still sitting in the chair with some white flowers on her knees. She looked so old that her body almost looked like a dried body.
Angele noticed that Huan was staring at the screen quietly. She just looked at her sister and Angele had no idea what she was thinking.
“Yeah… She’s dying…” she suddenly said.
“So, what’s your answer?”
Angele sighed with relief and raised the orb.
“Bring my sister to my world.” A strange smiled suddenly appeared on Huan’s face.
“Just live in my dream. You want to explore unknown worlds, right? There are countless attractive things in my world. You can get everything you want. This is the life you like, right?”
Angele narrowed his eyes and noticed that something changed. The birthmark on his back heated up; it felt like there was a flame burning in his body.
“You do want to keep me in your world…”
“Of course. Without the mark on your body, you wouldn’t notice anything and live in this world forever. Why do you want to know the truth? Sometimes, you’ll be disappointed if you know the truth… I’ve seen wandering souls like that…”
Huan raised her right hand and her right arm suddenly started burning. Her right armed turned dark and was burnt like a piece of wood.
Her right arm was covered in burning flames; it felt like the flames would never be extinguished.
Angele realized that Huan was not the Huan he knew. He also understood why the old monster pushed him into this world. She had been doing that to other adventurers, but none of them succeeded.
“So, the battle will happen no matter what… Sadly, flames like that can’t do anything to me.”
Raising his right hand, his arm started burning like crazy as well. It felt like there were invisible flames on his arm.
There was confusion, fear, and some excitement in Huan’s eyes for some reason.
‘Maybe she’s been waiting for someone that can defeat her. She was trapped in her own memory.’
Angele waved his right hand.
Stones and mud rose from the land. They quickly gathered around Angele’s body, surrounding him in the center and turning him into a large stone golem.
The stone golem was getting taller and taller. It only took seconds for it to reach ten meters, however, the golem was still growing. Also, a large stone sword appeared in its hand.
Angele was in the center of the stone golem, staring at Huan calmly.
The golem’s height increased from ten meters to 200 meters gradually.
Everything around him became blurry and the illusions all disappeared.
The golem stood in front of Huan and slowly reached to her using its hands.
