Angele eyed the women again without being noticed.
The one on the left had a long black hair trailing over her shoulders. The woman had a blank expression on the face. Her skin was clean and smooth. Strangely, the woman had no eyebrows, Angele saw a hint of coldness from her long slim eyes.
The woman on the right had a balanced body. Her red hair looked like burning flame, but she had no ears or nose. Angele noticed that there were many scars on her head and those scars made her face terrifying.
Nothing caught Angele’s attention and he decided to lower his head.
However, the woman with no eyebrows suddenly stared at Angele in his eyes.
Angele felt intense pain hit his skull. It felt like ice water went into his eyes, and his eyeballs numbed.
He lowered his head quickly and rubbed his eyes several times.
“Haha, don’t ever try to glare at master Flan again.” Vincent chuckled. “She acquired the Frost Winter three hundred years ago and served in the war between Northland Alliance and the underground races for 20 years.”
Angele collected some Plant energy particles to cure his eyes and creased his eyebrows.
Vincent shook his head and stopped talking. It was not the first time he had seen something like this.
The three kept walking forward.
Angele’s sight slowly recovered. Flan used a high-level technique to damage the nerves around his eyes, and his force shield was penetrated by her strong mentality wave.
The woman had no body temperature. Even her mentality wave was freezing.
“Who exactly is this master Flan?” Angele asked after feeling much better.
“Master Flan and master Quelina are two of the seven two-ring wizards in Six Ring High Tower. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the ancient ranking system, but the two already reached rank 2 a long time ago,” Alice responded before Vincent could open his mouth.
“Master Flan is Isabel’s family leader and master Quelina was sent here by the headquarters that’s located somewhere in the Gem Sea. This area you see here is just a division.”
Angele nodded but did not say anything. He was surprised by what he was just told. There were seven rank 2 wizards in Six Ring High Tower, yet this area was not their headquarters.
It was also the first time Angele met rank 2 wizards.
He could barely feel the mentality waves the two were releasing. It almost felt like he was looking at two average wizards. Angele was not sure if something happened to their mentality after reaching rank 2.
The people passing by all bowed to the two-ring wizards, but the two did not pay any attention to others and were just chatting using the energy particles.
Angele took a deep breath and decided not to glance at them anymore. He had not yet understood how his eye nerves were damaged. The chip did not warn him ahead and no spell was cast. The only possibility was that Flan’s mentality was way higher than his.
He stopped thinking and walked in the crowd with Vincent and Alice. They entered the gate of the white palace together.
The walls and floors in the palace had no engravings. Everything was made from white jade. A large sapphire was embedded on the top of the gate. Several female apprentices stood on both sides of the hallway greeting the guests on the way.
Inside it was a spacious hall. There was a three-level fountain built in the middle, and at the top, there was a white jade mermaid statue. The mermaid was half-naked, lying down with a leaning water jug in hands. The clean spring water was constantly coming down from the jug.
There was a long rectangular table on the side. It was covered with different dishes and wines. In the right corner, a group of musicians wearing black noble suits was playing instruments.
Angele did not find any lamps in the hall. The gentle white light from the glowing roof brightened up the whole place.
Vincent and Alice went to talk to their friends after leading Angele into the white palace.
Angele spent several minutes walking around the hall and found Isabel standing in a corner talking to two female wizards. He chuckled after seeing Isabel trying her best to smile.
Isabel saw Angele walking toward her. She finished her conversation quickly and turned around.
“Welcome to the party, Green.” Isabel remained calm. “I hope you have a great time here today.”
“Thank you for the invitation.” Angele smiled.
Isabel nodded slightly and walked straight to the gate.
Angele heard a voice being transferred into his ears from the communication rune.
“Go to the backyard. Someone will show you the formula. Don’t just copy it down on a paper. Use whatever special method you know to record it and leave the area within half an hour. The formula will disappear before that.” Isabel’s voice echoed in his ears.
“Understood,” Angele responded through the rune.
He had already acquired all the materials required in concocting the potion and the only thing missing he needed to do was craft it. With the help of the Tree Killer Potion, his mentality would increase to the same level as a Liquid stage wizard.
Angele walked out of the hall through the side door and headed to the backyard behind the white palace.
Several white robes stood in the garden having some random conversations.
The only one Angele knew here was Isabel. This place felt like a different world for him. It would be impossible for him to meet the two rank 2 wizards if Isabel did not send him the invitation.
A man with a silver circlet walked to Angele as he entered the garden.
“Master Green?” the man questioned in a low voice.
“Yeah.” Angele nodded.
The man quickly took out a tiny black box.
“This is a copy of the scroll. Time is limited. I assume you know how to record it.”
“For sure.” Angele grabbed the box but did not open it. He hid the box under the long sleeve and held it tight in his hand.
“The flying mount has already been prepared for you. Just go to the square when you’re done.” The man sent the words through energy particles.
Angele nodded again and turned around, heading to the small path on the side of the palace.
He saw many light wizards relaxing and chatting. Most of them were Liquid stage wizards and some of them were at Crystal stage based on their mentality waves.
From Angele’s view, most of the light wizards never experienced real battles. The only thing they did was doing researches all day. Fighting and killing were never part of their peaceful lives.
Angele felt like he was a wolf walking in a group of sheep. The light wizards around him had no self-defense awareness, as they only relied on their force shields from their Talent Spells. Strong Dark Wizards knew many ways to penetrate shields like that. The easiest way was to focus the burst damage on a single point. Most of the wizards here had higher mentality level than Angele, but they had almost no practical fighting experience in the battlefields. They were living a peaceful life, but Angele doubted if those wizards had the ability to retaliate in case the underground races’ invasion got worse.
Angele knew how hard it was to survive in this world. He constantly covered his body with a thin layer of metal. Most of the physical or magical damages could be reduced.
Without the metal layer, he would die from the ambush of the two light wizards back on the ship. The light wizard’s weak force shield would not stop the acid liquid from touching his body.
Angele heard Isabel’s voice coming from behind as he walked out of the hall.
“Thank you for joining my birthday party today, it’s my honor to…”
He did not stop and instead walked straight toward the square.
Most of the people were listening to Isabel’s speech in the hall. There was barely anyone on the road.
The walls on both sides of the road were glowing. They provided enough light for Angele to see the objects ahead.
He returned the square where the eagle landed quickly.
A female apprentice was waiting there with a white neck eagle on the side.
“Master, everything is ready,” she whispered.
Angele nodded, walked to the eagle, and jumped onto its back.
The white neck swung its wings several times and flew into the dark sky.
Angele could feel the connection between the box in his hand and the shield protecting the area. However, as the eagle increased its altitude, the connection was weakened.
He was basically stealing from Isabel’s family, but he wondered why no one detected him leaving the shield’s proximity.
An ancient formula like this one was priceless. Although Isabel was an inheritor of the family, the current leader should not give it away so easily.
Inside the room of one of the taller buildings in Isabel’s family territory.
Two light wizards stood in front of the window and watched a white neck eagle disappear in the night sky.
“So that’s Isabel’s lover we read from the report?”
“I heard he’s just Isabel’s friend. A Gas stage wizard. Should we go after him? Isabel just gave him one of our rare formulas.”
“It’s fine. Isabel is our hope. She’s the best among the possible inheritors. Margray has a bunch of mistresses and he spends way too much time playing with women. Christin wastes a ton of materials each year. We can’t keep wasting the resources like that. Isabel only wanted a potion formula, it’s not a big deal.”
“Alright then. One more thing, ask the members to bring Para back. The Astins are acting like they don’t care about us recently. We need to pressure them as soon as possible.”
“Sure, it’s been 20 years already? We need to keep our people’s positions in the organizations. The guards around the resource point are helping the assassination team recently. It’s our chance!”
