The Pinnacle of Life Chapter 1538
She then shot her mental power into the crystal. She seemed stunned.
After a long while, she retracted her mental power from the crystal and turned to Alex with an odd expression. “Look at it.”
“What’s in it?”
“This is… For you.”
“What?” Alex was shocked.
Dorothy replied, “It’s Dad’s.”
Suddenly, Alex felt his chest tighten. He felt as if he was suffocating. With trembling hands, he took the crystal and slowly inserted his mental power into it. At that moment, he felt his mental power linking with someone else.
Within the mental world of the crystal, he saw his father, William Rockefeller.
“Oh, my son, Alex. I don’t know if you’d ever find this crystal or hear this, but if you can, that means you’re all grown now!”
“Maybe you’ve figured out what’s happened here.”
“If you found the teleportation circle yourself, I’d be very proud of you. You didn’t disappoint me! You’re my good son after all!”
“Your mother’s sick, so take care of her for the time being. I’ll be back! We will reunite when that time comes, so don’t come looking for me! This is a responsibility I have to bear both as husband and father.”
William didn’t leave a long message. That was all he said.
William had probably left this message before going into the portal. He was most likely worried that something might happen to him on the other side of the portal. He didn’t have full confidence in finishing his task.
At that very moment, Alex had mixed feelings brewing up within him.
‘It really is dad. He’s been teleported to the other side.’
However, Alex had no idea what was on the other side, not even knowing where it would lead. Hence, he couldn’t help but worry about him. Moreover, William didn’t mention what business he had over there, but Alex figured it was related to his mother’s sickness.
“Darling…” Dorothy called out to him.
Alex pulled his mind out of the crystal. “I’m alright!”
Dorothy hugged him gently. “This is good news, isn’t it? This means dad is still alive! He went into this portal, and if he could come here alone, then that’s enough to prove he’s very powerful! I’m sure he’ll be fine.”
Alex nodded. “I’ll think of a way to fix this. I have to look for him as soon as I can.”
“Mhm! I’ll go with you!” chirped Dorothy.
The two hugged each other tightly and placed their lips on each other. A few minutes later, they parted lips and left the stone
room, tracing back their footsteps.
At the same time, the people outside were worried sick. If nobody had convinced her to stop, Waltz had initially thought of hopping into the pond to look for them as well.
When she noticed the two coming out of the pool, Waltz let out a sigh of relief. “Why were you in there for such a long time? I was so worried about you!”
Alex smiled. “I took a bit of time to look for those corpses. Look, I even found a fish egg.”
“What is that?”
“A Hell Fish egg! And it’s still alive!” Alex exclaimed, slipping the egg into his backpack.
“What do we do now?” Susan asked. “We’ve tried walking around the pond, but there aren’t any other passages. We’re trapped again.”
Alex waved his hand dismissively. “Don’t worry. I already found a way out. Follow me!”
