“That’s them. These creatures follow their traditions strictly and will come to our world and hunt from time to time. They’ll cut the wizard apprentices’ heads off and make them into trophies. Well, we hunt them down and make them into materials, so I guess it’s fair.”
Angele nodded; he still remembered the day he’d encountered one of these monsters.
“Do you have a list of the nobles?”
“We only know some of them as the last war against the underground world was a long time ago.” Wayne hesitated.
“Don’t worry, just tell me what you know.” Angele was not concerned.
Wayne nodded. “Hundred-Eyed Monster is just one them. There are Cave Banshees and Medusas. We have detailed information about them. I don’t know a lot about the other ones.”
“Medusa? The monster that can turn you into stone and has hair that looks like snakes?” Angele was interested. He had heard about this monster before.
Angele thought for a while and asked Wayne about the resources in the underground world. Wayne answered the question without any problem.
About half an hour later, Angele nodded, satisfied with the information he’d collected.
“Good. I think we’ll enter the entrance now. You can leave.”
Angele stepped into the dark hole; it felt like he was going through a water barrier. The area behind the barrier was a bit wet.
He got used to the change in lighting and glanced around.
It was a tunnel leading to the endless darkness. Angele had no idea how long the tunnel was.
He looked behind and found a stone door with black patterns on its surface. Mogo, who was wearing a dark cloak, was standing by the door, trying to adapt to the change of lighting.
“I guess we’re already in the underground world. Let’s move,” Angele spoke in a low voice.
“Sure.” Mogo sounded excited; a greedy smile appeared on his face.
They started heading down the tunnel. The place was getting wetter and wetter as they proceeded.
Angele’s eyes looked like two pieces of glowing red crystals; the monster was hiding in the shadow behind him.
Several minutes later, they reached the end of the tunnel and found a stone gate with the same pattern as the first gate Angele saw.
The stone gate was damaged. There was a large crack in the center of the gate, covered in a white spider web.
Angele rubbed the edge of the crack. The edge was rough and there were some spikes on it.
“Something broke through it. I guess someone cracked the gate to go to the surface.”
“Master, do you want to see what happened to the gate? I know some prophecy techniques,” Mogo asked politely.
“It’s fine.” Angele put his finger on the spider web and pressed slightly.
The white spider web bounced back, and an egg-sized spider appeared from the right. The spider’s body was covered with black fur and its green eyes were glowing.
The spider climbed up Angele’s finger, treating his finger like prey as it bit Angele’s finger hard.
The spider’s teeth cracked. It turned around and wanted to escape, however, Angele captured it using his hand easily.
The spider’s body trembled and it stopped moving on the back of Angele’s hand.
“Can you speak? Talk to me.” Angele sent the message using his mentality waves.
The spider rolled up, trembling in fear. It seemed like the spider could not understand Angele’s message.
Angele’s brow furrowed. He picked the spider up and threw it into his mouth.
The spider exploded in Angele’s mouth and Angele started chewing. Several seconds later, Angele swallowed the salty sticky liquid that was mixed with carapace and fur.
Angele opened his mouth slightly and released a string of blue light. The string rotated in the air for a while and disappeared into his forehead.
“Tastes bad but full of nutrients. Want some?” Angele looked at Mogo.
Mogo swallowed. He was scared, but a smile still appeared on his face.
“King of Dark Wizards… It’s a pleasure of mine to…”
“It’s fine if you don’t want to.” Angele shrugged. He was just teasing the monster. Angele licked his lips and revealed his sharp teeth. The sharp teeth made Mogo’s body tremble again.
Mogo’s realm form was a mutated spider, so he felt slightly anxious seeing Angele devouring that egg-sized spider. He did not feel sad for the spider, but he was scared.
Angele closed his eyes and thought for a while.
“I found out the direction. It’s slightly different from the route marked on the map, but it shouldn’t be a problem.” He opened his eyes.
Angele pushed the door open and stepped into another dark hallway.
Mogo finally realized what Angele just did. He was searching the creature’s memory. It was one of the cruelest methods developed by the dark wizards—Soul Drain.
However, what Angele did was even worse. He consumed the soul and the body of the creature. He was treating the spider like nutrients. Mogo kept glancing at Angele’s mouth and started to regret his decision of following Angele to the underground world.
He wondered if the great King of Dark Wizards was just treating him like meat jerky. Mogo was scared that Angele would devour him when hungry.
Mogo watched Angele advance and slowly moved away from Angele to keep a distance.
They traveled after a while and entered another cave, then they walked in the cave for about half a day.
The reached the end of another tunnel again.
By the end of the tunnel, there was a black stone wall covered by the roots of trees. The roots had the size of a human arm.
Angele stood in front of the wall and glanced around. He stepped forward and pressed on the roots carefully.
“Mother Tree?” He sent in a message using mentality wave.
No one responded.
Angele lowered his hand and sneered.
He took a step back and ordered, “Mogo. Hit these things! Break the wall!”
“Leave it to me, Master.”
Mogo inhaled deeply and he suddenly spat something out of his mouth.
He released a ray of dark light, which landed on the stone wall in front of them.
The dark light was quickly absorbed by the stone and made some light noise. The stone wall melted and turned into dark liquid, revealing the green light barrier behind it.
The dark light reached the green light barrier, but nothing happened.
“Let me give it a try!” Angele stepped forward and his right arm quickly turned dark. His skin was hardened and the size of his arm increased.
He raised his right hand and hit the green light barrier hard.
The whole place started shaking.
The whole underground world heard the loud noise.
“King of Dark Wizards is here…”
Somewhere deep in the underground world, a dark shadow was talking to a green light barrier.
“He’s going after the Mother Tree, Kris. We should pause our battle. Mother Tree is our symbol and our guardian! We shall not let other creatures approach her!”
A female voice came from the light barrier.
“I think you’re right… The King of Dark Wizards is one of the strongest beings on the surface; if we ignore his presence, it’ll be a problem…”
“I’ll head to the Holy Mountain and talk to Elder Nass!” the dark shadow responded.
“I’ll go to the Thousand-Eyed Cliff and see if Prince White Stone will help us!” the light barrier responded.
“Yeah. We need to get everything ready as soon as possible.”
*BAM BAM BAM*
It felt like Angele was hitting the elves’ hearts.
Inside a dark hall, a man sitting in a chair was listening to the loud noise made by the impact, his eyebrows twitching.
“King of Dark Wizards… Are the Prince and the Queen doing anything about this?”
The elves in front of him all had slim bodies and sharp ears. The night elves in the underground world had silver hair and pale skin due to the lack of sunlight.
A female elf stepped forward. She had long hair and there was a long black sword hanging on her belt.
“We’re having trouble handling our own matters, yet this King of Dark Wizards appeared. Prince, we don’t have many elves in the red sect; we should ask them to handle the King of Dark Wizards. We won’t lose anything by asking them to do it for us.”
“It’s not about the sect, it’s about the Mother Tree,” Prince responded calmly.
“We need to send people to him, but we need time to figure out a plan. Lance is about to reach the next level and they are close to the tunnel. We shouldn’t be the first one to react.”
“I think we should guide the King of Dark Wizards to the Queen.” The female elf realized what the Prince was trying to imply. “We don’t know how strong the King of Dark Wizards is. I don’t think he is much stronger than the Princes. We can attack him after he wastes his energy on Lance and the Spider Queen.”
“You’re right.” The Prince smiled.
“They’ll have to try to stop the King of Dark Wizards even if they know what we’re planning because the King of Dark Wizards is going after the Mother Tree.”
“Maybe we can try to capture Princess Nina using this chance. Without Lance, they are nothing to us and it’s impossible for them to destroy the new Magic Eye Cave we just built.” A male elf joined the conversation.
“We’ll see. If they decide not to attack the King of Dark Wizards, we should gather our army and stop them from returning to their own territories.”
Prince listened to the loud noise and was happy with his new plan.
“We might need to thank this King of Dark Wizards for invading our world at this time.”
