Necromancer: Divine-Level Summoning - Chapter 38
“The source of that aura should be around here!”
Keaton had long sensed the rich dark elemental power. Although he was not a bona fide Dark Elemental Magus, he was after all still a Necromancer.
To a large extent, Necromancy and Dark Magic were just two sides of the coin.
As a Necromancer, Keaton could naturally sense what a Dark Elemental Magus could.
“There might be something good there. I’ve discovered a pattern. The richer the dark elements around a region are, the greater the possibility of producing some advanced magic materials!”
Hurley’s eyes lit up when she heard the words. This trip had brought her too many benefits, and she was unwilling to leave such a treasure land so easily.
“Then let’s hurry over. If we delay any longer, there will be more changes!”
Although she was normally very timid, under the temptation of rare magic materials, she still gathered her courage and expressed that she was willing to follow and search those precious herbs with Keaton.
Keaton nodded. During this period of time, he had unknowingly become the leader of the trio.
Although there was no nominal acknowledgment, in reality, Keaton’s current opinions could already determine the direction of the entire group.
As such, the three of them headed towards the source of the dark element aura.
The aura that existed here was actually very different from what a pure dark element aura would be like.
This dark aura was also suffused with many other elemental powers that were within the region. This was also the reason why the denser the dark aura, the more spirit medicines would be born!
If one wanted to accurately describe this dark aura, it would be more appropriate to use the term chaotic aura to describe it.
Feeling this extremely concentrated chaotic aura, the three of them felt a chill all over their bodies. It was as if there was a huge piece of ancient ice placed in front of them!
However, this chill was different from the pure cold. This chill could penetrate a person’s body and directly affect one’s soul.
Before long, they arrived at a dark pool.
This pool of water was so dark that it was like the endless night sky, incomparably deep and lofty.
However, as the pool was located on the ground, looking at it gave people the opposite effect instead.
One would instead have an instinctive sense of fear as though they were looking down at the abyss!
“Have you heard of this saying? When you look into the abyss, the abyss is also staring at you!”
Keaton slowly turned his head and looked at the two girls beside him with a strange expression.
Being teased by Kedan, Samira immediately retreated a few steps backwards.
Even so, she covered her mouth with her hands, determined not to make a sound!
Hurley was also shocked by Keaton’s words, but after thinking for a while, she understood the meaning behind the words.
Keaton was giving them a warning. At this moment, they had already entered the center of the Fallen Sky Lake region and arrived at the treacherous Smokefall Plains!
Perhaps something terrible would happen after that. With Keaton’s scary words, they would be able to maintain a little clarity of mind in the face of what might happen next.
After a series of explanations, Hurley finally managed to persuade the poor frightened Samira to come back.
The three of them walked in a line towards the black pool staring into the deep lake water!
The water in the pool was dark, its depth unknown.
Small bubbles slowly floated up from the bottom of the pool, bringing with them a chaotic and foul aura.
With the continuous support of the chaotic energies provided by the Black Pool, the surrounding chaotic aura reached a peak.
It made Keaton and the other two feel a deep sense of fear.
On the other side of the Black Pool actually stood a black stone house, with its door tightly shut.
On the east side of the Black Pool, a cyan colored tree was growing diagonally. Among the branches of the tree, there were a few shiny black fruits that were hanging on it, emitting waves of the fragrance of a ripe fruit.
“F*ck! This is the legendary Elemental Spirit Fruit!”
Looking at these tempting fruits, Keaton and the other two opened their mouths wide in shock.
As everyone knew, the color black would be formed when all colors are mixed together.
[TL Note: I really had to search this to be sure, but it seems like if you mix the primary colors in a certain proportion you will get black.]
The same concept applied towards elemental power. When all the elements gathered together, the color that appeared was the black color that represented chaos!
“An Elemental Spirit Fruit can raise my Rank twice!”
Samira spoke out in shock. That’s right, the effects of Elemental Spirit Fruits were just so violent and direct.
There was only one effect, and that was to allow the living beings who consumed this spirit fruit to obtain a vast amount of mana!
With their current Rank, if Samira were to eat this spirit fruit, she would instantly rise from a Rank 4 magus to a Rank 6 magus!
Furthermore, this was not all the energy the Elemental Spirit Fruit contained.
The fact that she could become a Rank 6 magus did not mean that the power of the Elemental Spirit Fruit was limited to that. In fact, the power contained within the fruit was sufficient to allow her to reach Rank 7 actually.
The reason why she could only reach Rank 6 was because her body could only absorb so much energy. A large portion of the Elemental Spirit Fruit’s energy would be filtered away to protect her fragile body.
Thud thud thud!
Sarmila walked towards the Elemental Spiritual Fruit in a daze. However, at this moment, Keaton, who was standing behind her, rushed in front of her and pulled her back.
“Don’t go over there. Since this thing is so precious, we’re definitely not the first to discover it. Look at that stone house over there. It’s obviously man-made.”
The greed in her eyes disappeared upon hearing his words.
Keaton was right. How could there not be any defensive measures around such a heavenly treasure?
Since that house existed, it meant that someone must have found this spiritual object and built a house to guard it.
This also explained why Keaton and the others did not discover any demons once they had arrived at the Smokefall Plains!
This meant that the strength of the owner of this stone house was far beyond that of ordinary demons.
However, at this moment, Hurley, who had remained quiet the whole time, had already walked towards the cyan colored tree.
As Keaton was occupied with stopping Samira, before he could notice, Hurley had already reached in front of the fruit tree.
And just as Hurley reached for the Elemental Spirit Fruit….
A burst of aura that was powerful beyond imagination suddenly shot out from the stone house by the pool!
