Angele followed the three into the hole.
The darkness inside the hole was endless. The four stood on a floating silver path that was surrounded by the darkness. There were some colorful meteors flying in the space. Some of them came from top; Angele could also see meteors below him. The meteors were traveling in random directions.
With a flick of Angele’s finger, he sent a ball of red flames to the right.
The fireball slowly traveled several kilometers, getting smaller and smaller as it moved. Around ten seconds later, Angele could no longer see the fireball, but he could still feel it through the energy connection.
Angele’s brow furrowed as he looked at the path under his feet. The path looked liked like a thin layer of silver glass. Its surface was covered with tiny cracks.
“This place is severely damaged…” Leonard was a bit disappointed.
Medusa tried to scan the area as well. She lowered her hand and spoke in a light tone, “There’s nothing I can do. This is the dimension universe. Everything related to us will be stopped. It’s lucky that the void tunnel is still working.”
“Let’s keep moving. The Star Lord Palace is far from here,” Atlanta spoke in a light tone.
They nodded and increased their speed on the silver path.
Angele had no idea how long had passed before several different routes appeared in the area ahead. The routes almost looked like a big spider web.
Angele followed after Atlanta as they advanced. A humongous silver-blue palace finally appeared ahead.
The palace was standing in the dark, releasing bright light. It felt like the palace was designed using an Ancient Roman style.
The white stone staircase in front of the palace was long. They quickly stepped on the stairs and entered the white gate.
Two groups of people were already sitting in the hall. The group on the left was a group of shadows without physical forms. They looked like human-shaped floating smoke.
The group on the right consisted of human beings in white robes and with wings on their back. They all had beautiful faces, however, Angele had no idea what their gender was based on their appearances.
One of the people with wings stepped forward after the four stepped into the hall. The man—apparently—had black hair and green eyes. A gentle smile appeared on his face as he walked to them.
“Master Atlanta, it has been years since we last met, your body is still very strong!” The man’s four wings on his back swung slightly. It seemed that was how he greeted people.
Atlanta smiled as well, then walked to the man and hugged him. They also kissed each other.
“Mane, you’re still so beautiful. You’re over 2000 years old, but you still look young! I’m glad that you’re still alive.”
“The world intestine would’ve turned me into nutrients if Master Dragon Seal hadn’t been with me…” Mane’s expression changed.
They greeted each other and had a short conversation. It seemed like they were not familiar with each other, making Angele wonder why they kissed.
Leonard knew what Angele was thinking and explained through energy particles.
“In the Four Wings Realm, people kiss each other when they meet. It doesn’t mean that they are close to each other. However, Atlanta usually overdoes it. These people enjoy kissing with Atlanta for some reason. I heard they were collecting the saliva of strong beings. I thought it was just a joke.”
Angele was a bit speechless.
“They collect saliva? That’s a weird tradition…”
“Let’s sit down and wait. We need to wait for other realm guardians.”
They found a corner and sat down with their legs crossed. They were just minding their own business.
Time flew. Around ten days later, more people appeared.
*BAM BAM BAM*
They heard loud noises from outside the palace. An invisible vortex slowly entered the hall. The vortex went around everyone’s body, and a floral fragrance permeated the air.
Angele opened his eyes slowly and glanced around. People’s expressions changed after hearing the noise. They looked a bit anxious, especially the shadows. One of the shadows stood up with the help of a cane. The two silver eyeballs on his face were staring at the entrance of the palace.
The men with wings were not concerned, but they still moved back slightly.
Atlanta’s expression turned serious; he quickly explained in a low voice, “Be careful, the strongest beings around have arrived. Don’t talk unless it’s necessary. I’ll take care of the rest.”
Angele, Leonard, and Medusa remained silent after hearing those words. They looked at the entrance of the hall—just like other newcomers, they all wanted to know what the strong beings looked like.
Several minutes later, the gate was pushed open. A chubby man walked into the hall slowly. His footsteps were so heavy that they made loud noises.
The man had red skin. He had no hair on his head; instead, there was an enormous pink bud. The bud was the source of the floral fragrance.
“Flower King Ying, the only guardian of the Illusion Realm. Be careful, he’s short-tempered and hates it when people look at his head,” Atlanta quickly sent the words to Angele. Leonard and Medusa already lowered their heads. It seemed like they knew about this.
Angele glanced at the Flower King and slowly lowered his head.
The Flower King glanced around the hall, and his sight fell upon one of the shadows.
“The Shadow Demon is also here. That’s rare. I thought you were going to hide in the Shadow Realm forever.” He chuckled.
“Shadow Realm?” Angele narrowed his eyes and looked at the shadows.
The shadow man did not respond. He coughed several times; it seemed like he was scared.
Flower King snorted and moved his sight away.
*BAM BAM BAM*
He walked to the other side of the hall and sat down with his legs crossed.
The outfit he was wearing looked like green leaves. With the bud on top of his head, he looked like a large plant. No one would know that he was a person if he did not move.
Several more days passed. Then, a translucent being flew into the hall. It was a man with a blank expression. The man found a corner and sat down without saying a word. The people in the hall glanced at him; it seemed like they were not concerned. The man only had the power level of a rank 7 wizard. He was probably a guardian of a weak realm. The Flower King and the Shadow Demon both had the power of a rank 8 wizard.
People who were weaker thank rank 8 were not allowed to talk here.
They waited two more days, and a man with long dark hair entered the hall. The man was handsome and there was a long sword hanging on his belt. The man looked a bit weak with his pale skin; he was wearing a formal white suit.
“Flower King, you’re here too?” The man found the Flower King right away. His left eye turned purple and the length of his eye increased slowly. The eye looked a bit strange after the change.
Flower King laughed in a strange tone.
“Hey! It’s Ken. The man who took the position of his own sister’s daughter! I assume you’ve completed your Oblivion Strike; otherwise, you wouldn’t be here.”
The man’s brow furrowed.
“Flower King, can’t you talk like a normal person?”
“A normal person? We’re all normal when compared to you! You betrayed your teacher and destroyed your family for power. Also, you took the position of your sister’s daughter and joined a different organization. Ha, Ken the King of Holy Seal, what a beautiful name! Your life can be turned into a touching novel.” Flower King was not worried.
“Your teacher’s organization was weakened because of you and he had to join my realm. Thousands of years of history is gone. With the Oblivion Striker, you now have great power, but you’re a scumbag!”
“It’s none of your business. Don’t worry about me,” Ken spoke in a light tone. He walked to an empty corner and sat down.
“The most talented being of all time… What a joke! I’ll tell all realm guardians about your glorious history!” Flower King stared at Ken and spat on the ground.
The gate of Star Lord Palace slowly closed after Ken entered the hall. Suddenly, a ray of white light soared through the closing gate and landed on the floor, turning into a middle-aged man with pale skin. He stabilized his body and glanced at all the people in the hall.
“Zoe! I didn’t know you were still alive!” Flower King was surprised.
“What do you mean?” Zoe spoke in a cold tone. He was not speaking in the universal language; instead, he was sending the message using his mentality wave.
“I knew you went to challenge the world intestine, but I didn’t expect you to be still alive after three tries…” Ken glared at the man. “You were severely injured when you escaped. I saw that.”
Zoe snorted and remained silent. He sat down with his legs crossed by the entrance.
It seemed like Flower King and Ken knew how strong Zoe was. Zoe did not answer their question, but they did not say anything else. They also released energy barriers in front of their bodies quietly.
The shadow beings, the four-winged men, and Atlanta all released energy barriers in front of them. They had serious expressions on their faces.
The real guardians from the weak realms all moved back to the edge of the hall, observing the situation carefully.
Angele’s brow furrowed and he was about to ask Atlanta about it. However, he saw that Zoe slowly released some white mist from his body. The mist started spreading quickly.
A herbal smell permeated the hall; the realm guardians from the weak realms were having trouble handling the white mist. Their faces all turned pale.
“Since everyone is here, I’ll close the gate. We can start discussing the main topic of this meeting.”
A loud voice echoed in the hall. It sounded like an old man’s.
No one said a word. Everyone was listening to the voice.
“We gathered everyone here for two reasons. The Sea Flower and the Oblivion Artifact of Nolan Island,” the old man was speaking in a serious tone. “We need to set up a rule for the distribution of the flower. Suggestions, anyone?”
“Suggestions? The rule should be simple. The strongest one here should take most of the benefits!” Flower King said.
“Share them equally.”
“You can set up a rule.”
The realm guardians started talking. When it was about the benefits, no one was backing off. They were all trying to suggest a plan that would benefit them the most.
Atlanta also provided a plan. However, Angele was just listening to them talk on the side.
