“I do have something that needs your help. You need to come to me,” the bird spoke in a serious tone. “I have two friends here that want to meet you. I’ll explain everything later.”
“Huh?” Angele thought for a while and responded, “Alright, I’ll find you later. I’m pretty much done here.”
“I’ll wait for you in the Cloud Realm.”
The light slowly faded away from the bronze badge.
Angele thought for a while and put the bronze badge back into the mirror. He glanced at the grave for one last time and sighed with mixed emotions.
He turned around and created a dimension tunnel in the front. There were colorful meteors flying in the void. Angele stepped into the tunnel without any hesitation.
In the endless dimension universe, some bright blue strings flashed in Angele’s eyes. He was flying to the top left corner at full speed, turning into a dark meteor.
Angele almost understood the secret of time and space after he became stronger. He could move in the dimension universe for a short period.
A large ball of white clouds appeared in the area above. The clouds were surrounded by white strings that looked like cotton twine.
Angele charged into the cloud ball; it felt like falling into ice-cold water. The high temperature field around his body was activated automatically, but everything returned to normal within seconds.
He flew in the clouds for several minutes.
A spacious gray plain appeared after he left the clouds.
There were countless holes left by meteorites on the plain. There was no animal, no air, and the clouds in the sky were far from the ground. The area below the clouds had no air at all.
Angele blinked his eyes and started flying down at full speed.
A yellow crystal pillar slowly appeared on the ground. The pillar looked like an elevator that was awaiting Angele’s arrival.
Angele flew into the crystal pillar, which started sinking.
He stood inside the pillar and pressed on the surface of the crystal. The yellow glow was the only source of light inside the pillar; it seemed like it was taking him underground.
Angele had no idea how long had passed before he was brought into a spacious area.
The walls and the ceiling of the space were made of silver metal. There was an altar in the center of the area. It was a gray altar with golden edges and a humongous golden fireball on top of it.
What made the place different was the creature above the fireball.
It was an enormous blue ice dragon. The dragon lowered its neck, and its mouth was right beside the fireball.
Angele checked the dragon carefully and realized that the dragon was an ice statue.
“That was fast.” A loud voice echoed in the space.
Angele checked the source of the voice and found a man in a yellow robe staring at him.
The man was around five meters tall, and there was a blank expression on his face. The man had no hair and there were countless circles that varied in size on the man’s robe.
“Vans?” Angele questioned.
“Yeah, this is my human form.” Vans was the name of the bird. “Welcome to the core of the Cloud Realm. The core is the center of the Cloud Realm, and is one of my territories.”
“I assume you’ve invited me here because there’s something that will benefit both of us.” Angele smiled and left the crystal pillar, landing several meters away from Vans.
“I’ll get something I need every time I meet you.” Vans smiled. “You’re strong. If a realm guardian can handle the mission, you’ll be able to do it even better.”
“That’s the reason why you asked me to come here.” Angele walked to the golden fireball. “Is this the heart of the realm? That’s some pure flame.”
The golden fireball was around ten meters tall. Angele reached into the fireball and could feel the warmth from it.
“You can have a look around. I’m still waiting for some old friends,” the bird spoke in a light tone.
Angele nodded and stopped talking to him. He started checking the structure of the golden fireball.
After he learned about an unknown ancestor’s power from the Ramsoda School, he spent most of his time analyzing the power. Angele wanted a strong ancestor’s power if he could successfully break the limit.
The wizards’ power would increase greatly when they made it to the next rank. It was not like simple scientific inventions. They would not go from one level to another by just consuming a large number of resources.
Angele started thinking, while Vans just stood there without moving an inch. It almost felt like they were two wax statues.
Seconds passed, minutes passed, hours passed, days passed, and months passed.
They just stayed in their original positions.
Finally, two more yellow crystal pillars appeared in the space. Two men slowly flew out of the crystal pillars.
One of them was wearing a white outfit, and there was a sword hanging on his belt. It was Ken. Angele met him for the first time at the Star Lord Palace.
The other one was a middle-aged man with an average-looking face. His body was surrounded by some white mist. The man had a human face, but he looked like an elemental creation.
They slowly landed by the golden fireball.
“Ken, Eye of Judgement, you’re a bit late.” The bird opened its eyes and looked at them.
“There was some trouble on my way here.” Ken saw Angele and nodded slightly. Angele also nodded. They met each other when they were going after the Sea Flowers.
Eye of Judgement was not interested. He looked at Angele, but he did not say anything.
“Is this the new god you talked about?”
“Yeah”—the bird nodded—”he blocked a strong strike when we were collecting the artifact.”
The man looked at Angele and nodded. “Let me introduce myself. My name is Serko Aster Rondo…” His name was so long that it took him several minutes to finish. “That’s my full name, but you can just call me Serko.”
“Serko is a merged form that crosses two realms. His realm form looks like an eyeball; he was born at the same time as the Destruction Eye,” the bird explained.
“Alright, let’s go straight to the point. I don’t think we’re here to just introduce ourselves,” Serko interrupted.
“Of course.” The bird glanced at the others and waved his right hand. Four silver stone chairs appeared on the ground. “Please sit down first.”
They sat down around the golden fireball.
The bird raised its head and looked at the ice dragon. “This was one of the strongest dragons that I slew. I build this statue and imprisoned its soul here. With the help of the realm heart, the soul of the dragon is preserved very well, and I controlled its mind using a special item. I found some useful information in the dragon’s memory a while ago.”
The others remained silent and waited for the bird to finish.
The bird chuckled. “I just took control of this old dragon’s soul, but I found a big secret. I thought carefully before inviting you here.” He stopped for a second and continued, “You’re some of the strongest beings in this universe. There’s barely any improvement we can make before breaking past the limit. However, we have a chance now with this secret I found.”
Their expressions turned serious, and they remained silent for a while.
“Are you talking about killing an ancestor?” Serko spoke in a light tone.
Angele and Ken held their fists tight. They had mixed feelings about this.
“An injured one?” Ken wondered.
“You’re right.” Vans nodded. “Not just injured—he’s about to collapse. His situation is worse than that of Light Ancestor and the ancestors who escaped the war.”
“Just the four of us? I doubt we can win the battle.” Serko shook his head. “What else do you have? An injured ancestor can still eliminate us like stepping on ants.”
“You’re correct. The difference is, this ancestor already started sleeping as he wanted to recover faster. The only thing we need to do is to break his defense system.” Vans smiled.
“If he’s actually sleeping, it’ll be great.” Angele’s expression loosened. “But, you got the information from the dragon’s memory, which means we might not be the only ones that know about it.”
“We are the only ones.” Vans was still smiling. “The other guardians and evil gods who knew about this all passed away. They were killed at the resting place of this ancestor. I took control of the entrance to that place and scouted the area. There was no other guardian in it. We are the only people that know about this now. I summoned you here because I knew that you won’t give up until you become ancestors.”
“I still think it’ll be hard for us to complete the task…” Ken opened his mouth.
“We’re the strongest beings in the area. I checked the other realm guardians, but they didn’t meet the requirements.” Vans shrugged.
“Maybe we can gather more realm guardians…” Angele was trying to say that the weak realm guardians could at least make the things easier.
“We can’t,” Vans declined. “After the battles, the entrance to the area is unstable. It’ll still fit a lot of weak beings, but we’re too strong. I would’ve gathered a whole army if I could.” Vans scrunched his eyebrows. “Also, the ancestor origin can only be shared between five living beings. According to the record, we won’t be able to break through the limit if we can’t get enough ancestor origin.”
“That’s a problem, then,” Serko spoke in a light tone.
“There’s another problem. The realm we’re heading to is inhabited by a local civilization, and we might be attacked. The ancestor origin is what supports the realm. Without the origin, everything will change and all the living beings might be wiped out from that realm, so we need to be prepared,” Vans added.
“Everyone here understands the time and dimension. I don’t think low-level living beings can do anything to us. I can just stand there and let them attack me.” Serko was not concerned.
“I can change the direction of their attacks by adjusting the time and dimension.”
“Just be careful. The entrance is still a bit unstable; it’ll take around 2000 years for the entrance to stabilize. I want to be fully ready, and we’ll be the only ones entering the realm. Make sure you don’t leak the information to others! This is the best chance for us to break through the limit and reach the next level!” Vans spoke in a serious tone.
Ken and Angele nodded slowly. Serko did not do anything, but it seemed like he knew how important this was.
Translator Note: To make it less painful, I’m releasing the last 5 chapters in one day on Dec 24. Can’t find the translator’s thought thing so I’ll leave it here and I’ll remove this note later. Thank you for reading!
