The female knight with red hair and the male apprentice also noticed that Angele and the other woman did not modify their body. It seemed like they did not like people who had natural bodies.
“It’ll take a while until we reach our destination. Since we’re in the same room, why don’t we introduce ourselves? I’ll start. My name is Gai, and I’m a rank 3 apprentice.” The male apprentice suddenly opened his mouth. “Alright, your turn.” He was talking to the female knight with a scar on her face.
The female knight opened her eyes and put her arms behind her head.
“Erin, I’m a knight,” she responded in a calm and light tone.
The female knight with red hair changed her position slightly and smiled.
“I’m Selina, and I’m a rank 3 apprentice.”
“My name is Green, and I’d rather keep my rank secret,” Angele introduced himself, but there was no point for him in telling others about his rank.
“Your eyes are beautiful and have some good fashion sense.” Selina was interested in Angele because the man gave her an unusual feeling. She was looking at Angele from below; Angele could easily see her breasts from that angle.
The woman climbed her way up using her body because of her low talent level. She did everything she could to become a rank 3 apprentice, and it was nearly impossible for her to rank up again. That was the reason why she decided to move to the west coast.
“Thanks…” Angele smiled; his eyes were red like rubies. “You have a nice body.”
They chatted for a while before the lunchtime.
They left the room, walked down the hallway, and entered a spacious dining hall.
There were rows of metal tables and chairs in the dining hall. People were already having food on their seats; they could purchase prepared dishes from the counters.
Angele waited in the line and got himself a lunch combo. He had an omelet, some vegetable salad, some barbequed pork, and a large serving of white bread.
He found a random seat and was about to start eating. The female knight named Selina suddenly sat down by Angele and put down her plate. The food in her plate looked better than the food in Angele’s plate.
The male apprentice named Gai sat down in front of them with a plate full of food. He waved at the girl named Erin, who was sitting by herself in a corner.
“Erin, come sit with us. We can have lunch together.”
Erin glanced at them.
“Don’t worry about me.”
She lowered her head and focused on the food in her plate.
“Well, we’ll be living in the same room for a while, we should at least have lunch together…” Gai muttered.
“Let me talk to her.” Selina stood up. She walked to Erin and dragged her to their table. They were both knights, but it seemed like Selina was stronger and her rank was higher. Although Erin tried to decline the offer, she was still dragged to their table.
They sat down. Angele noticed there was only some brown bread in Erin’s plate. She was drinking water and eating the cheapest bread.
Her plate was not appealing at all when compared to others’ plates.
It seemed like Selina was doing it intentionally. She straightened her back and grabbed Erin’s shoulders.
“Erin, why did you order the worst food? Are you trying to lose weight? Your body needs a lot of nutrients. Alright, have some egg rolls.” She put the egg rolls in her plate onto Erin’s plate. No one knew if Selina was being generous or just mocking the other party.
“Don’t worry about me…” Erin tried to push Selina’s plate away, but the egg rolls were already on her plate.
Angele and Gai watched the scene, but they did not say a word. They were just eating their food.
After lunch, they returned to the room together. Selina asked Angele a lot of questions. Gai was reading his book. As for Erin, she looked a bit depressed after the incident. She lay in her bed and no one knew what she was thinking.
Angele chatted with Selina while monitoring his body’s condition.
He was not releasing strong energy waves and mentality waves. With the pressure from the ancestor’s mark, others would think that he was just a mortal. Strangely, the only thing the ancestor’s mark did was to stop him from teleporting to other realms. The mark did not hurt his body and it was somehow improving his bloodline. He could feel that his true form was getting stronger as time passed. Angele’s power was increasing like there was no limitat.
Angele’s power level was increasing so fast that he was a bit scared. The barrier made by the six-arm snake race had a limitation, if Angele’s power level was too high, the barrier would break. The barrier was already damaged when he was exploring the intestine of the world. The barrier could break at any time if his power level continued to increase.
Ten days passed quickly.
Selina was treating Angele like he was her close friend, however, no matter what she did, Angele did not show any interest. He was paying more attention to the other female knight named Erin.
After they had the lunch together, Erin never joined them again; she would have her lunch at a different time. Also, she never used any paid services or bought any snacks in the airship. It seemed like she had some financial problems.
The female knight did not even have money for the hot water, and used cold water to wash her clothes and clean her body. The temperature in the sky was extremely low. The place was cold even for a knight. Angele talked to the workers in the airship and ended up paying for the hot water for her.
Angele felt like Erin was similar to the female swordsman named Velvet. Velvet was in the same ship as him when he was traveling to Ramsoda. The girl was not very talented, but she never gave up.
Also, Erin would lower her head and blush when she saw Angele after she found out that Angele was paying her bill. The hot water in the airship was relatively expensive when compared to other services. Erin would rather spend the money on food, however, she knew that she might get sick if she continued to use the cold water.
Several days later, Erin decided to talk to Angele. She asked Angele to find her on the deck.
There was no one else on the deck. The place was so cold that no one would go there. Only the workers would check the condition of the airship from time to time.
Angele and Erin stood by the entrance of the cabin.
“You don’t have to buy the hot water for me. I can’t pay you back.” She looked at Angele calmly.
She spent all her money on the ticket to the west coast; she had not expected the hot water to be so expensive. The wizard apprentices could warm up the water by themselves, but Erin was just a knight. She could only rely on the special cold water provided by the airship. The special water would not freeze even when the temperature was lower than negative 30 degrees. Erin almost passed out when she used cold water to clean her body in the bathroom.
“Don’t worry. I just want to do it.” Angele’s face was covered with a mask. He did not expect to meet a girl that could remind him of Velvet. That was the only reason why Angele decided to pay for her hot water.
Angele declined Velvet’s offer for various reasons. The incident happened a long time ago, but Erin just kept reminding him of the girl.
“I can’t pay you back. You can probably get anything you want, and I don’t think you’re interested in my body. Why are you doing this for me?” Erin sounded a bit anxious.
“You remind me of an old friend… That’s the only reason why I’m doing this for you. Alright, don’t think too much about it. We’re getting closer to the Storm Lord’s territory.” Angele smiled, turned around, and left.
Erin stood behind Angele and bit her lips. Angele had no idea what she was thinking.
Three days later.
They entered the territory of the storm giants. The airship was moving to the right.
Some of the passengers decided to get off the airship here and walk to the west coast. Angele was one of them. He said goodbye to his roommates and got off the airship. He built a small tent in the forest and rested for a while.
Angele was not going to walk to the west coast. He wanted to visit the storm giants; they almost killed him when he was traveling to the central continent.
He waited half a day in front of the storm and found airship that went rogue. The airship was trying to travel through the storm, but Angele stopped them and threw all the bandits off the airship. He then headed to the center of the storm alone.
The center of the storm was a humongous gray tornado. It was smaller than the abyss tornado, however, it completely blocked the shortest path to the west coast.
Angele controlled the blue airship by himself and slowly headed to the gray tornado. He spent two days in the air and finally approached the tornado.
The white clouds looked like cotton flowers on the ground. In their center, there was a gray tornado that was stirring the clouds around it.
On the left side of the tornado, a blue airship, whose surface reflected the golden sunlight, was moving toward it slowly.
A man in a long blue robe was standing on the deck with his hands on his back. He looked at the tornado quietly as the chilling wind blew his hair in the air.
The man’s face was covered by a mask. His red eyes were exposed; he looked calm.
There was blue lightning in the tornado, and tiny blue electric pulses were sparking around it. The blue electric pulses turned into blue electric orbs the size of a soccer ball each.
One of the electric orbs flew to the blue airship and charged at the man in a long robe.
With a flick of his finger, the electric orb exploded like a bubble and disappeared.
“An alert system?” The man took off the mask.
It was Angele. Strangely, his face was covered with tiny purple eyes. The eyes were all blinking—the scene was terrifying.
His body was covered with those pea-sized human eyes. They were like parasites attached to his skin. If he removed one of the eyes, two new eyes would appear and the circle would never end.
