Wooden House and Meeting

It was as if he had gone through a long fall. Leylin felt like he was in another world when he finally touched the ground.

‘What… is this place?’ Observing the dusky fog of the mountains and the black forest in the distance, he sank into deep thought.

*Caw! Caw! Caw!* A crow with three blood-red eyes spread its wings and took off from a tree branch beside him, leaving behind a few fallen feathers. Its piercing shrieks spread far and wide.

‘A.I. Chip!’ Leylin subconciously commanded.

[Beep! Beginning scan of surroundings. Scan completed! Begin…]

The A.I. Chip’s voice was normal at first, but near the end, it suddenly grew rough as if it was facing some strong interference.

”AAH! AAH! AAH!” After some time, the voice changed to become piercing feminine shrieks. They grew higher and higher in pitch until they threatened to blast Leylin’s eardrums apart, at which point he had no choice but to order it to halt operations.

“Wind probing…” Leylin stretched his arms out, and light green wind elemental particles gathered around him, the slight green wind elemental particles gathering extremely slowly, causing his brows to furrow. Soul force appeared, causing a light green gust of wind to spread in all directions.

‘This seems quite familiar, but I just can’t put my finger on it!’ Leylin frowned, feeling as if his memories were shrouded by some fog. Yet he managed to remember a lot of things, such as his magic. Still, he seemed to have forgotten something important, and it gave him a bad premonition.

Soon enough, the scattered wind gave him some results which let him know of his current location. He was outside a forest, and there was even a dark red river flowing nearby. There was a wooden house not far away, with what seemed to be a human figure inside.

‘This range…’ Leylin’s brows furrowed, ‘Not only is it difficult to use spells at all, even their effects have been suppressed to a large extent. Could this be some high-ranked World?’

The temperature of the forest lowered with the setting sun, and the fog around him grew denser. It even turned a dark red, which sent a chill down Leylin’s spine. He quickly got out of the area and arrived at the wooden house he had discovered.

Golden roses were in full bloom behind the fence, and traces of grey smoke rose from within that allowed Leylin to feel some warmth. The wooden door creaked open, and a kindly woman walked out. The woman seemed rather young, around twenty years of age at best, but the intelligent glint in her eyes made Leylin feel like she was someone with abundant experience.

“Little brother! You’re back!” The woman chuckled after seeing him, the brilliance of her smile leaving Leylin intoxicated. It was as if the flowers surrounding her bloomed with her laugh.

“Who are you?” Leylin couldn’t help but ask.

“Me? I’m your sister. This is your home!” The woman’s face was beautiful, and the brilliant golden strands of hair that blew in the wind felt familiar to Leylin.

“My… home?” Leylin mumbled.

“Yes, your home! Welcome back!” His gentle sister spread her arms wide open, as if wanting to give him a warm embrace.

“You’re my… sister?!” Leylin kept repeating it over, and the beautiful woman’s face gradually matched to one in his memories.

“Yes! Little brother, you’re finally back!” There were tears in the woman’s eyes. And yet, he suddenly felt immense terror as her arms approached him for an embrace. An unknown malicious intent caused him to quiver in dread. ‘WAIT!

‘I’m Leylin Farlier, a bloodline Warlock from the Magus World. Why am I here?’ a voice kept shouting out in his mind, but Leylin could no longer control his body. His limbs moved automatically, and he was only one step away from pouncing into a hug.

“Defiant Ring of Fire!” “Shadow of Quandary!” “Dark Serpent Tendrils!”

Spell models flashed one after another in front of Leylin’s eyes, but his spells that had already been suppressed to a large extent seemed to lose all their abilities. No energy was emitted at all.

“Come back!” “Come back!” “Come back!”

The faint voice caused Leylin’s eyes to show further perplexion, and the surroundings of the wooden house underwent a huge change. The dark red fog grew more dense, and the bright golden rose gradually wilted to reveal white skeletons below. A few small snakes slithered out of the occasional eye hole.

The wooden house had changed behind the roses, becoming a coiled up bundle of snakes. A few triangular serpent heads popped out from it, spitting out a dark red poison. In an instant, the peasant home had turned into a terrifying hell.

‘This feeling of suppression is familiar…’ Streams of dark red fog automatically invaded Leylin’s body, and it caused the familiarity to grow more intense.

Finally, light flickered in the depths of Leylin’s eyes.

“It’s dreamforce! This is Dreamscape! I’ve been dragged into a dream!”

[Beep! Host determined to be in Dreamscape!] As if the fog in his memories had been completely swept away, the A.I. Chip’s voice was no longer that of a shrieking woman; it grew clear once more.

Feeling his elemental control and his soul force being isolated, Leylin’s thoughts flashed to something, ‘Dreamscape is a profound world that rejects all powers that are not dreamforce.’

“Come back!” At this moment, the fingers of the woman nearby were about to touch Leylin’s face.

“In that case,” a spell model was abruptly transferred to him by the A.I. Chip, “rank 4 dream spell— Illusory Scepter!” Large amounts of dreamforce waves gathered in Leylin’s hand, forming a strange ancient scepter.

“Go away!” Leylin pointed the scepter at the woman, and dark red demonic flames sprayed out of it.

“AAAHH!” The woman screamed, covering her face and retreating.

“Who are you?” Leylin’s expression was very serious as he watched the woman who stood up once more.

A large portion of her face had disappeared, but strangely enough she had no reaction to it. There wasn’t even any blood at the site of the injury.

“I never thought you’d have already altered yourself for Dreamscape and grasped control of dreamforce…” The woman spoke dully, but the familiar voice made Leylin’s pupils shrink, “You’re… The Snake—”

*Rumble!* The scene broke apart, revealing an astral river that stretched through the void. A starlike bundle of snakes opened up in the river, revealing the Snake Dowager within.

“My child, return to my embrace!” The Snake Dowager’s voice held within it some bizarre attractive force, causing the blood in Leylin’s body to boil, out of his control.

A voice inside urged him to submit and fall at the knees of the Dowager. Large numbers of giant snakes were hissing and roaring at him, the sound waves causing his expression to change. “This is not Purgatory World, but a dream.

“My free will shall not be controlled by anything else! Snake Dowager, your biggest mistake today was dragging me into Dreamscape!” A decisive look immediately appeared in Leylin’s eyes, and an even more illusory, dazzling spell model formed in his hands.

“Rank 5 dream spell— Distrait Dream!” Strange undulations shrouded the region…

Feeling wetness across his cheek, Leylin opened his eyes to find a strange large beast looming over him with its mouth wide open. Its scarlet tongue licked at his face, and a terrible stench assaulted his nostrils.

“The central continent’s Bone Grey Badger? Then this is the real world, which means I’ve escaped?” Leylin’s eyes regained their radiance as he easily chased the monster away, glee apparent on his face.

He took a look around, and found skid marks on the ground, greenish yellow soil peeking through the tracks made in the grass.

“That’s right. I was on the way back to the Warlock Union, but the Snake Dowager pulled me into a dream, which is why I suddenly fell…” Leylin touched his chin, guessing what had happened.

“Darkness and dreams share a strong connection. It’s no surprise that she can use the power of dreams. The only thing she didn’t expect was that I’d already undergone Dreamscape alteration and be able to use dreamforce…” Cold sweat streamed down Leylin’s back. If not for his prior experience with Dreamscape, the consequences of being pulled into that dream would have been disastrous.

There was a huge gap between the Magus World and Purgatory. With the added limitations of protective spheres, the Snake Dowager would not be able to attack Leylin so easily.

Yet, Dreamscape was different. Space itself was muddled there, and everything was everywhere. An attack through dreams would be the most energy efficient.

Though there were some limitations, it should have been enough for the Snake Dowager to suppress Leylin. Perhaps the only thing she hadn’t considered was that Leylin had already made contact with dreamforce, and his body was used to it. This allowed him to snap out of it automatically, and even use a rank 5 dream spell.

While he could do little to her, the time he had gained was enough for him to escape.

“Snake Dowager…” Leylin muttered, his eyes flickering with light. Her attack had made it clear to him that she would not tolerate any descendant escaping her control.

The more outstanding he was and the faster he progressed, the more intense the conflict of interest would grow.

‘I never expected that a tiny existence like me would catch the attention of the Snake Dowager.’ Leylin’s lips quirked up in a bitter smile. He’d already felt like he was being watched when he’d evolved to become a Kemoyin Emperor Warlock. He just hadn’t expected this day to come so fast.

51 thoughts on “WMW Chapter 665” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

    1. I’m thinking that Leylins spell merely interrupted the Dowagers.
      Even if it was only effective for .001 of a second, the connection would be lost.
      And he can do that every time.
      In person would be still be stepped on.

      1. At first I thought this was going to be another long illusion arc like what happened in Twilight Zone and I was about to lose my shit

  1. I’m hoping the other Warlock Union members can help defend Leylin against the Snow Dowager. Since Leylin himself ought to be powerless against her, and I don’t know who else would…

    1. What would you get by offending a higher existence? You reached the latest chapter and yet you still think like this? Such naivety.

      1. I disagree, I think you are failing to see the big picture. They gain a lot if they help Leylin, a potential magus who may even reach rank 7+ who owes the union is massive incentive. Considering the fact that the snake dowager cannot send her full strength into the magus world, as long as they stay within heir world will, they are safe from her. They would just need to wait for Leylin to reach the requisite power to deal with the dowager himself. Then they have a rank 7 being leading the warlock union. It’s a gamble, but I think it is well worth the risk for them.

        1. Are you reading the same story as us lol? I don’t think it will play out like that unless the author switches it up because the only antagonists in the future are ‘gods’ and he’s going to change the writing style because of it.

          1. Not sure how that’s relevant to what we are arguing, but the snake dowager doesn’t have much power comparatively speaking if she goes to a different world with her physical form. All I was suggesting is that Leylin could theoretically get some protection from people who do not have to be subservient to the snake. No one is talking about gods yet, just how Leylin will survive long enough to get to that level. Are you even reading our comments completely? Don’t talk unless you are.

        2. The Warlocks expectations of Leylin are only up to rank 6, while rank 7 is basically a legendary figure in the current Magus World. The bloodline suppression alone could probably render them helpless(like Boris ‘tried’ to do with Leylin), not to mention that Leylin advancing is only a possibility as of now. They probably won’t take part unless Leylin forces them to.

          1. Eh, I mean with the speed in which he advanced and the fact that if he did break the shackles he would have unlimited potential, I would argue they expect quite a bit more then just rank 6. Remember, they saw him go from rank 3 to rank 5. They know how quickly Leylin grows. And the younger you are, the greater potential you have at higher ranks.

          2. I think they can’t think of it that way. Since warlocks are known to have bloodline shackles. They still assume Leylin to be one of the warlocks to have a chance of becoming rank 6. Rank 7 might still be far fetched to them. Remember, Leylin only has the possibility of reaching rank 6 for them. They’re not even sure yet.

          3. Rohitee I recommend you to stop reading beta male mc novels since they change their character on a whim and you thought that it is normal. They won’t even face the flame monarch do you still think that they would fight it out with someone more powerful?

          4. I think the question of bloodline supression will solve itself with the breaking of the bloodline shackles, because my bet is, that the wisdom tree might have given him a method to alter his bloodline. Snake Dowager might be the progenitor, but when leylin manages to mutate his bloodline into a snake that has only slight relations to the Snake Dowager, the bloodline Suppression would be minimized if not completed erased.
            Similar to how the Lamia was able to use bloodline suppression as a higher ranked bloodrelative, but still couldn´t make leylin submit immediately.
            To take a stupid example, Blade trinity. Dracula may have been the Progenitor, but he still lost to Blade, a mutated descendend.

            So if leylin manages to mutate his bloodline(with devour or dreamforce for example ) to something different or even better than the snake dowagers original, then she has no power over him.

          5. @Heavenly Warts Family
            Wtf are you talking about…. what you said literally has no baring on the discussion whatsoever. Go back to garbage MGA where you came from please. Thanks.

        3. I doubt the union would help Leylin based on his potential. If anything else, they’re more likely to be tempted by whatever resources an almighty rank 7(8?) being can offer. Or at the very least, they won’t be willing to offend the Snake Dowager and will adapt a wait and see attitude to see if Leylin could possibly win, just like how they just let Leylin be on his own against the blazing monarch.

          Also Leylin breaking the limits of the kemoyin serpent and turning into a kemoyin emperor, though unexpected, was not impossible. However now, everyone knows, Leylin included, that his bloodline cannot evolve any further. Remember, warlocks rely on the fact that their bloodline will naturally let them advance in ranks. So knowing Leylin’s bloodline is stuck at rank 5 with no possible evolutions will make them think unlikely for Leylin to advance.

      2. I initially dismissed the possibility, but then I realized there’s a decent chance, because it was foreshadowed that those other rank 5 Warlocks started to look at Leylin differently (one of them said to another “Maybe Bevis won’t be the one to reach rank 6”). I figure there’s a 30/40/30 split between them saving Leylin, Leylin somehow unleashing a trump card I can’t imagine to escape, or the Snake Dowager not actually intending to completely put Leylin under her control.

    2. The World’s Will of the Magus continent is very powerful. Even if she is a Rank 7, most likely her power will fall towards Rank 6. At that level, Leylin should be able to do one or two things against her. It will be hard, but not impossible. Leylin might try to manipulate the other Monarchs or the Warlock Union into helping. Though…
      Melinda and the bird man kinda hates him.
      The Warlock Union is next to useless due to bloodline control.

      Either way, Leylin might find a way to devour some of the Snake Dowager’s comprehension of laws, thus giving Leylin control over both Fire and Darkness Laws.

      1. Pretty sure she is around rank 8 with a small chance of rank 9 seeing as she could kill the Gaurdian of the Ice World while presumedly suppressed.

        So even if she went to the Magi world she would pretty much be unstoppable at this point.

        Wouldn’t Leylin’s kids all only have rank 4 blooline? After all, how would it even work with multiple Emporor snakes? So i guess they will only be rank 4 with a tiny tiny chance to evolve and break the shackles of there bloodline.

        Also Emporor snakes wouldn’t be so rare to the point they are consodeted legends if one breeding insured the birth of more.

        1. Well, if that’s the case, why hasn’t she come to the magus world? or any other rank 8 beings, like the trial’s eye or the filthbird or beelzebub.
          My guess is that there are still level 7/8 beings around in the magi world, maybe in one of the subterranean worlds, hiding.

    3. She’s rank 7+, Warlock Union is powerless against people with divinity, otherwise they wouldn’t have had so much trouble against a rank 6. So, sorry… your hope won’t come true.

      1. I agree with kylar. They are already ‘hesitant’ to go against a monarch. What more to an existence that can utilize law. Even with the advantage of the world’s will ‘potentially’ lowering her rank. I definitely think that the snake dowager is rank 8 for her to be able to defeat the rank 7 ice giant in her base. (iirc) Although, I
        think Leylin will come up with something himself.

    4. She never dare to come in main body . Even she is rank 8 World’s will’s power will reduce her power greatly to even temporary drop in rank and I don’t think ancient magus in ancient war(rank7-8) is all die (if magus world don’t have some trump card in hand god’s world must make its revenge for long time)

      I think it best thing she can do is use some deadly curse on him.

  3. Thanks for the chapter OMA, Theo, and Vare! Wonder if the AI Chip had managed to plan out any contingency plans were she to personally make a trip over.

  4. At first I was like: “Not this sh*t again.” Fortunately, it wasn’t the same as in Twilight Zone. I mean, it was nice and all, but twice? Just nope.

    Thanks for the chapter!
