Fortunis said in a trembling tone,
“I will never say half a word, absolutely won’t!”
Fang Linyan nodded, then he did something that greatly surprised Fortunis. He directly took out a stack of cash, which was exactly 10,000 euros gotten from Doss, then he divided 5,000 euros and stuffed them under the stone beside him.
“The one who sees it has a share.” Fang Linyan said faintly, “These 5,000 euros are yours, but I suspect that the police will search you, so I hide here. No one will know. You can come over and take them after this matter is over.”
Fortunis’ breathing suddenly quickened. He instantly felt that the guy in front of him seemed to be a good person.
In fact, this was also the case. Although Fortunis was repeatedly questioned after that, he insisted that he was knocked unconscious without seeing anyone.
In doing so, he was indeed a little afraid of Fang Linyan’s threat. Secondly, he was quite a bit of Stockholm Syndrome. He felt that Fang Linyan also took a risk to keep him alive, so there was a sense of gratitude in his heart…
After throwing Doss’ body off the Acropolis, Fang Linyan returned to the Parthenon and found that the scroll had completely absorbed the remaining faith power. Not only that, but the pattern on the scroll was also stable. It wasn’t shining as before.
It could be seen that the afterglow of the sunset on the scroll had become brighter. Under the lush dark green leaves on the olive tree, there was an olive tree fruit. The white owl would circle the olive tree from time to time. The was a slight red light on the altar.
Fang Linyan then continued to walk around the Acropolis while holding the scroll. After absorbing the rest of the scattered faith power, did he directly climb down the mountain he came here with.
He just dropped a rope directly from above, wrapped his hands with his clothes and slid down along the rope. This was so much easier than climbing up.
After going down the mountain, Fang Linyan opened the mission bar to see if this problematic mission had been completed, but the mission changed again,
“Ability Promotion Mission: Trace Back to Origin successfully completed.”
“You successfully came to the Parthenon and absorbed the power of the same source.”
“Additional Mission Objective: Please summon the Trigoneia Altar in the scroll and sacrifice the ancient black magic book (incomplete) you are carrying.”
“Mission Reward: Gain the ability of [Ancient God’s Blessing (Enhanced)].”
“You can also directly choose to get the quest reward and directly get the ordinary [Ancient God’s Blessing] ability.”
Fang Linyan was stunned for a while. He immediately weighed the pros and cons in his mind. The ancient black magic book (incomplete), that was obtained from the female giant, seemed to be a taboo. He fed the corpse of the dark wizard until 100%. The guy inside was arrogant and sounded unreliable.
If he wanted to get the corresponding reward, he might have to get into a big fight, and the reward was unknown.
As one of the gods of Olympus, Athena had protected Greece for thousands of years, so she was still reputable. Using the ancient black magic block for sacrifice seemed to be much more stable in gain, and it would definitely be useful to him.
Therefore, Fang Linyan also had a plan in his heart, so he held the scroll in his hand and asked with his mind,
“How to summon the Trigoneia Altar in the scroll? Will there be any abnormality after the summon?”
Soon there was a response from the scroll:
Visualize the altar in the scroll, then inject mana into it continuously. The abnormality is that there may be light that ordinary people see.
Faced with this request, Fang Linyan pondered for a while. He saw an electric bike next to him, and he walked over with a screwdriver in his hand. He couldn’t help shaking his head and smiling bitterly.
Soon, Fang Linyan came to Mount Ymittos in the east of the city. This was the place he chose at will. After leaving the city, he found that there were few pedestrians on the road. When he entered the fork, there was no one there on this early morning.
After finding a hidden place on the side of the road and throwing the electric bike in, Fang Linyan thought for a moment before summoning the [Mechanical Siege Soldier] with the new mutated ability.
The normal shape of the siege soldier looked more similar to the shape of Transformers rather than the human skeleton model version of the Terminator. The overall impression was that it was composed of multiple cuboids, and its surface was painted in blue and white.
However, after consuming 300 common points to disguise it, from the appearance it looked like a normal Greek man wearing a suit. It was taciturn. It was standing behind Fang Linyan with a very standard posture; standing straight at any time and its left and right hands crossed in front of his lower abdomen.
Fang Linyan activated the guard mode and let it follow beside him. This was to prevent anyone from disturbing him when he summoned the altar.
After everything was ready, Fang Linyan entered Mount Ymittos with the siege soldier. Although it was called a mountain, it was only 300 meters.
After finding a remote mountain col, Fang Linyan grabbed the Ancient God’s Gaze Scroll, poured his mana into it, and immediately saw that the altar on the scroll began to glow. The altar began to project onto the ground in front and gradually materialized.
The altar presented in the real world was quite exquisite. It had a U-shape. At the end of the U, there was a tall relief tablet carved out of marble. The relief was honoring the great achievements of Athena.
The strong and powerful posture of the character above, the complex movement, and the fluttering clothing patterns were quite realistic. Even the air had an indescribable fragrance.
Fang Linyan walked up to the altar while maintaining a respectful attitude. He placed the incomplete ancient black magic book on the altar. At this time, the guy who called himself “Mephisto” roared excitedly again,
“Aha, boy, I will fulfill your wish now. Whether you want immortality or great power, Lord Mephisto will definitely meet your requirements. Come forward and accept your reward!”
Listening to Mephisto’s excited roar, Fang Linyan sneered,
“Mephisto is 1 of the 3 demon gods, how could a small character like you pretend to be?”
The other party immediately roared furiously,
“Idiot! You ignorant little bug, I was summoned from hell. I swear to the flames of hell that my ancestors had a trace of Mephisto’s blood!”
Fang Linyan said lightly,
“Oh! So that’s the case, then according to the usual practice, is it that if I pray for immortality, then you will eat me and assimilate my body? If I pray for power, I have to offer my body to you so that I can get Lord Mephisto’s eternal power?”
The voice immediately roared excitedly:
“Yeah, little bug, why are you so smart? For such a smart believer, I will keep his head in my palace to talk to me when I’m bored. Kneel down and cry with excitement! Thank me for bestowing this glory upon you.”
Fang Linyan said firmly,
“Sorry, I have no interest in the glory you bestow!”
The voice immediately said furiously,
“You dare to rebel Lord Mephisto… Ah?!! What have you done to the Great Demon God Mephisto?”
It turned out that this guy didn’t notice when he was talking to Fang Linyan, countless white tiny light filaments had spread out from the altar and wrapped tightly on the book!
At this time, the preparation was probably completed, so these light filaments shone brightly. It looked like a dazzling light cocoon. The voice of the so-called “Mephisto” turned into a scream that gradually became weaker.
Suddenly, there was a loud crack, then the dazzling light cocoon was torn apart, turning into thousands of light spots and drifting out. A black figure of 3 people tall broke free from it.
This black figure looked like it was pieced out of thousands of skeletons. Some similar to abnormal bones with barbs everywhere. It had 4 terrifying bone claws and no legs. There was a white mist in between the bones, supporting it in the air.
“Ahahaha! Stupid human beings! I deliberately suppressed my strength so that you can break the seal of this damned holy book with all your strength. You really did what I wish. If not, I will still be imprisoned in this holy book for thousands of years!”
“Tremble! Cry! Then prepare to be my food!!”
However, just after the lifting the seal on Mephisto, from the “Ancient God’s Gaze Scroll”, a snow-white owl flew out. It turned into a light and pierced through its body like anarrow.
Mephisto screamed in pain and covered the pierced part, but it could be seen that the pierced finger-sized wound had a faint golden light that couldn’t be removed. No matter how Mephisto screamed and struggled, the wound was spreading rapidly.
In just a few seconds, the finger-sized wound became the size of a bucket, and it finally spread to Mephisto’s body!
It trembled violently and tried to escape, but its figure quickly faded and turned into light and smoke in mid-air. These smoke and light were all devoured by the hungry altar.
Fang Linyan has also read some information on this. The main source of the power of the gods was the faith power, but in fact, the god of justice like Athena was also very eager for the power of the demons. It wasn’t troublesome for her to convert the power.
An anonymous book of preaching even recorded that:
The most initial light is born in the darkness. Under the most extreme light, it will also leave the purest shadow.
Beneath the fertile ground, buried corpses.
The sweetest fruit needs to be fertilized with the filthiest manure,
For this god who was born in another world, the filthy dark blood of Mephisto must be an indispensable supplement.
The thousands of strands of white light on the altar gathered all the remnants left by Mephisto and swallowed them bit by bit.
This process took about half an hour to complete.
The altar was also gradually becoming transparent until it disappeared.
Suddenly, the snow-white owl flew out again, then it turned into a cloud of smoke.
A delicate and snow-white palm stretched out from the smoke, then a pure and flawless snow-white naked… foot!
Finally, the smoke slowly dissipated, and a beautiful priestess holding a golden snake-head staff appeared!
TL: Priestess? Athena in another form?
