Chapter 636: Thousand Head Bird (1)
Translator: _Leo_ Editor: Kurisu
These realm guardians turned the place into a market. No one was waiting for others to finish their words. Flower King, Shadow Demon, Ken, Zoe, and the other strong realm guardians were pretty much arguing with each other. They were all trying to find excuses to support their arguments.
The weaker ones remained silent. They just stood there and waited.
The strongest finally reached an agreement after a while.
“Alright, that’s it. The guardian of the Sea Flower is the Thousand Hand Bird. The realm guardian who killed the most of its heads will get the most Sea Flowers. The fewer heads you kill, the fewer flowers you’ll get. It’s fair, right?” the old man concluded.
They remained silent, but Flower King chuckled.
“Do you really think the bird is weak? Not everyone has the ability to eliminate its heads.”
“The stronger ones get most of the flowers. It’s fair,” Ken interrupted.
Atlanta sent the words to the people behind him through energy particles.
“The teams are decided based on which realm you’re from. That’s a problem. Maybe someone will eliminate some weak realm guardians before we attack the birds.”
Angele, Leonard, and Medusa nodded.
Angele remained calm; he was not sure how strong these realm guardians were. With the help of the ancestor’s mark, his Strength already reached a whole different level, and he was confident that he had the highest Strength among the rank 8 beings. He was slightly weaker than Atlanta, but with the new magic device he had, he was not worried.
At this moment, the old man started talking again. “Alright, I’ll save you some time on the road. I hope you can get it done as soon as possible.”
They felt their bodies vibrate after the old man finished those words.
The gate opened slowly, revealing a silver sky. The energy waves outside felt completely different than before.
Angele was a bit surprised. It only took one second for the palace to bring everyone to a completely different place. His ancestor mark did not stop the palace from doing that.
He looked at Atlanta with a confused look on his face, and Atlanta quickly explained, “The old man is the Star Lord Palace; he was an ancestor from a realm around us. However, he lost his ancestor’s ability for some reason. He still had strong power, so your ancestor’s mark was not a problem to him.”
Angele nodded after hearing the explanation.
Most of the realm guardians remained calm, however, the newcomers were a bit surprised. They slowly stood up and started walking out of the gate.
Atlanta followed after them and walked out of the door with the people from the wizard world.
Outside the Star Lord Palace was a silver void. There was no object around, and the silver tunnel was no longer there. Below the stone staircase was pure silver.
A sharp scream came from below as they stepped out of the palace.
It sounded like crying children. The voice was so sharp that they felt like their bodies were being stabbed by iron needles.
Some of the guardians groaned, and their bodies were shaking. It felt like they were about to fall. The rank 8 beings only had their brows furrowed; it seemed like they had no problems handling the pressure.
Atlanta’s body trembled slightly, but he calmed down quickly. Leonard and Medusa’s faces turned pale. They almost lost their balance. Angele helped them to calm down, and they nodded at him gratefully.
“The bird is provoking us! I’ll go first!” Zoe said and left the staircase. He quickly jumped into the air, disappearing into the void.
“Let’s go!” Shadow Demon jumped into the void with the shadow beings as well.
Flower King, Ken, and the other weak realm guardians also jumped into the void.
Atlanta glanced at Leonard, Medusa, and Angele. He was a bit surprised to see that Angele had no problem handling the pressure.
“Let’s get moving.”
They jumped off the staircase and started falling.
A large yellow plain appeared in Angele’s sight after they fell for a while. There were countless yellow bird heads on the plain. Each of the heads had the height of over 30 meters; the bird heads looked identical to the head of a parrot, but there were black spiral horns on them.
It felt like looking at a forest of yellow bird heads. There were thousands of bird heads, and the noise they made still sounded like crying babies.
The ones who’d jumped off the staircase earlier were already fighting the bird heads.
There were pink, black, and white lights flashing above the plain. The noise made by explosions and the bird’s screams was so loud that it made everyone’s body vibrate.
There were black dots falling from the silver sky. Angele and his teammates were on the left side of the sky.
They landed on the ground and some blue light flashed on their bodies, but they quickly disappeared.
More than 30 bird heads were charging at them like beasts with no brains. There was saliva dripping down their chins; they looked hungry.
The larger birds were releasing green mist from their mouths; it quickly expanded to the area where the blue light flashed.
“Move!” Atlanta shouted immediately.
They charged out of the blue light. Leonard was a bit slow, and groaned after he touched the green mist. His muscles and skin on the back started melting right away.
Leonard narrowed his eyes as he quickly touched his back using his right hand. The melting muscles were cut off.
The muscles dropped to the ground and turned into sticky green liquid, with dark smoke rising from it.
The green mist behind him was still going after him.
Leonard turned around and quickly opened his mouth.
Blue smoke and white smoke came out of his mouth, twisting around in the center of the green mist.
Blue light flashed in the green mist, which stopped advancing for a second; however, it was still moving to Leonard.
“Damn! This bird is over two million years old!” Leonard was surprised. He turned around and tried to run. Then, two rays of blue light flew to him and wrapped around his waist, dragging Leonard to the other three members in the front—he finally caught up.
Atlanta retrieved the two blue rays with a serious expression on his face. He sent the message to others through energy particles while running at full speed. “Watch out! We’re about to reach the best position. We need to set up the maze after we reach our destination, and can work together to eliminate the bird heads!”
“I don’t think it’s going to work! The bird is over two million years old, and its heads can merge into each other. If more than ten of its heads merge, we’ll be dead!” Medusa shouted.
“This is the only way!” Atlanta wanted to say something else, but more than ten bird heads appeared in front of them. They were charging at the team like ten yellow rays of light. There was no way for them to dodge the attack.
“Wait!” They realized how dangerous the situation was.
“We should regroup at our destination!” Atlanta was blown away by the bird heads the moment he finished his words, and flew to the other side.
Angele, Leonard, and Medusa were also blown away by the impact.
Angele wanted to fight back using the power of his true form when he was being knocked down, however, his body froze before he could do anything. He was stopped by an invisible force, and he watched the three bird heads charge toward him.
Angele’s head was dizzy; he had no idea where he was. It took him a while to stabilize his body. He glanced around, but his teammates were nowhere to be found. He noticed that he was standing on an endless yellow plain.
The three bird heads in front of him became translucent and turned into one head. The bird head was still crying, and started charging toward Angele again.
Angele had taken the hit because he had not been familiar with the bird’s attacks. The situation changed after he knew how to defend himself.
He quickly checked his body and noticed that he was not injured at all. Angele’s bloodline power gave him a much stronger body than other realm guardians’. Most of the bloodline inheritors were evil but strong. They needed the power to take resources from the guardians of other realms.
Angele raised his right arm, and it quickly turned into a black scorpion claw. He swung the claw like a hammer, trying to hit the bird’s head.
The bird head cracked into pieces and collapsed. Three yellow crystals flew into Angele’s hand.
‘This head had the power of a rank 7 wizard… That’s a problem…’ Angele caught the crystal pieces, and his brow furrowed.
Around seven more bird heads appeared in the front, charging toward Angele. One of the bird heads had white electric pulses around its horn. The dimension around the horn was twisting.
The bird head lowered slightly, and the electric pulses landed on the ground, turning into an earth strike.
Angele glanced at the earth strike and his expression changed immediately.
“White Thunder! I didn’t know the bird has this skill… This is the legendary thunder that can damage its target’s soul directly! How is this even possible!?”
The White Thunder had the same power level as a rank 8 wizard’s strongest damage spell. It could deal around 500 thousand degrees of damage, and Angele was not sure if he could handle it.
Angele had no time to think. He blinked his eyes and a red mask appeared around his body.
A strange smile appeared on the mask, which faced the earth strike directly. The mask was getting larger and larger. Around half a second later, the length of the mask increased to more than 30 meters.
The earth strike landed on the mask, but it did not do anything to it.
Angele felt relieved; he checked the mask’s condition and noticed that it was not damaged at all. He then checked the large bird head and waved his hand. He retrieved the mask and started heading to the destination.
Angele wanted to check the defensive ability of the mask, and was now satisfied with the result. His true form could handle an attack with 500 thousand degrees of damage, but it seemed like the mask had higher defense than him.
Angele did not waste any time on the way. He followed Atlanta’s energy waves and traveled at full speed. He encountered a lot of merged bird heads, but none of them could do anything to his mask.
He saw rays of silver light striking into the sky after a while. There were injured realm guardians in the silver light—they were being sent back to the palace.
The Star Lord Palace was trying to help the injured realm guardians. Although they were still alive, Angele was certain that there would be consequences. Also, Star Lord Palace could not take care of everyone at the same time.
Angele saw that one of the silver rays was crushed by a translucent bird head when he was still thinking. The bird head screamed and caught the falling realm guardian. The realm guardian was devoured right away.
“WAHHHH!” Suddenly, the loud scream echoed in the sky again.
Angele increased his speed and charged in the direction of the voice. A lot of dead bird heads appeared on the ground. It felt like the earth was shaking; the ground was covered with fissures. There were ice shards and lava spurting out of these fissures.
