The three defensive matrices successfully covered the area around the house.
Angele stayed at home and started preparing for advancing to the next stage.
Wisp finally knocked on his door the day after three days of waiting.
“Good, that’s the potion we talked about, right?”
Wisp threw the crystal bottle into the air and then caught it with both hands. It was a vulcanized crystal bottle with clean green liquid inside.
“Yeah. By the way, the quality of the crystal leaves is incredible.” Angele sat on the sofa and smiled.
“One more thing. I heard master Isabel is borrowing resources from others recently, what’s going on?” Wisp looked at Angele.
“Huh? Borrowing resources from others?” Angele furrowed his eyebrows. “Well, the number of resources delivered to me was reduced. I was told that she was in need of a certain material. That’s probably the reason.”
“Reduced?” Wisp shook his head. “From what I heard, the number of resources leaving Isabel was the same as usual.”
“Is that so?”
“It’s impossible for Isabel to do something like this. Where did you get the intel from?” Angele narrowed his eyes.
“I know. I heard it from a trusted source, it’s true.” Wisp stopped for a second and sipped from the teacup. “There’s no point for me to lie to you.”
“Well, thanks for the heads-up then.” Angele nodded.
Angele raised his hand after Wisp left. The nail on his index finger was surrounded by a blue glow, which felt like his nail was being frozen.
White smoke rose from the tip of his nail.
“Isabel, just a quick question, did you reduce the number of materials this time? Don’t worry about it. Save the necessary materials for yourself, I still have plenty left. I’ll still stabilize the rhino blood for you.” He sent the message through the communication rune. It would take a while until Isabel could read and reply to the message due to the distance.
Obviously, someone was trying to stop Isabel from sending too many materials to Angele. Rossi did not have the guts to do something like that, so it must be someone from the family.
Angele finished sending the message and deactivated the rune. He then started thinking about the situation while sitting on the sofa.
He had had a general idea of what was happening after Wisp told him about the intel. Isabel was short in materials, yet she was still sending him numerous resources.
Most of the materials Isabel sent to Angele were kept in the storage room. They were rare and valuable, but Angele had no way to use them all. He could easily acquire the needed resources by selling the potions he concocted. The quality of the materials from Wisp was on par with the ones from Jones Family.
“Nancy, come here for a second,” Angele shouted as the communication rune of Nancy flashed on his nail.
Within seconds, Nancy walked into the room with a variant of swordsman’s suit. She had been doing some physical training outside. The white tank top and short leather pants revealed her slim waist. There was a long ponytail behind her head, and she was walking in a pair of brown leather boots.
“I’m sending all the unopened boxes back to master Isabel. Ask Rossi to pick them up.”
“But master, you haven’t checked what’s inside yet.” Nancy was confused.
“Just send them back.” Angele waved his hand. “Also, I’ll be staying in the house for a while and I will not be letting anyone getting inside during that period, including you. I have something important to take care of. I’ll open the door myself when everything is completed.”
“Got it.” Although Nancy was not sure what Angele was planning, she nodded right away.
“Also.” Angele stood up and walked to Nancy, staring at the young girl that had been serving him for years.
He could smell the fragrance of the perfume as he got closer. It was faint but enchanting.
Angele raised his hands and carefully grabbed Nancy’s slim waist. Her skin was tight and elastic.
“Your clothes are too revealing…” Angele whispered in a light tone, “You can wear them for me, but not for the others.” His voice was deep and charming.
“Yes…Master…” Nancy blushed, knowing fully well what Angele was trying to imply. The man did not want the others to see too much of her skin.
Angele rubbed Nancy’s waist with his right hand. She was slightly sweating. Her skin was warm and smooth.
“If you don’t mind me asking, after this is done, can you be my lady?” Angele spent most of his time focusing on handling the materials and concocting potions, but he knew Nancy wanted to be more than his servant.
Nancy was beautiful and elegant, Angele liked her a lot. Although it was almost impossible for Nancy to break through and they could not stay together forever, Angele still wanted to enjoy the most enjoyable moments of his life together with her.
Nancy knew what Angele was talking about. She slightly leaned against his body.
“Sure. I’ll wear whatever you want me to wear…” She muttered with a face still blushing.
Nancy tipped her toes and kissed Angele on the cheek before running out of the room.
Angele could still feel the softness of Nancy’s lips. He peeked outside through the door, Nancy was talking to the female Knight and the female apprentice. They were laughing and running around.
The gusts of laughter from the young girls lightened up the mood around the house.
“It’s about the time.” Angele calmed down, then he locked the door and walked into the basement.
The reason why the next stage was called Liquid was that wizards needed to be able to liquefy their mentality.
Angele’s mentality had already reached 40.7 units and that was with the help of the Demos’ Water, but it was no longer effective.
He grabbed the needed potions from the Potions Room quickly.
The Tree Killer Potion and the seed of the crystal leaf.
Angele went into the spell room and sat down with his legs crossed.
It was a square room with walls covered in complicated white defensive runes that could absorb a certain amount of energy particles. Those energy particles would be released gradually back into the environment so that they would not explode during spell tests.
The twisted white runes climbed on the dark walls and almost looked like they were alive.
To advance to the next stage, it required the wizard to find the condensation point.
Each time wizards advanced to the next rank or stage, their body conditions would change and each time they changed, some potions would no longer be effective to them. Wizards needed to keep finding more powerful materials to make stronger potions. The potions were needed to be used before their body could develop a resistance to the new materials.
One of the most important steps in the process of advancing from Gas to Liquid was the compression of mentality.
Angele’s applied compression technique from Markolov would be helpful during the progress.
First, he needed to create the proper formula. The simpler the formula was, the lesser mentality would be consumed. Getting the impurities out of the mentality before the liquefaction was critical.
It sounded easy but controlling the mentality was extremely difficult for wizards since they needed to find the proper method and materials to bring the effects to the mentality.
Angele was trying figure out a complete mentality compression method using the formulas.
He closed his eyes. There were blue light dots flashing under his eyelids.
There was no light in the spell room. Angele sat in the darkness unmoving and was breathing heavily but slowly.
Two hours later.
Suddenly, Angele opened his eyes, with his hands glowing. Rows of glowing red runes surrounded his body, flashing as their shapes changed.
The red glow on Angele’s hands almost brightened up the room.
The activity of his mentality wave was getting intense.
‘Simulating the mentality model…Gathering mentality…’ Zero’s mechanical voice echoed in his ears.
A hologram of his body appeared in front of Angele’s eyes.
Countless red light dots were moving toward his head on the blue hologram. The dots looked like strange ants and their speed was fast.
The red dots came from different parts of Angele’s body.
The red dots from his feet slowly disappeared.
Angele could not feel his feet anymore, almost like his feet were cut off.
After that, his legs, hands, and other parts numbed as the red dots left those areas.
The red light from Angele’s hands was getting intensely bright. After several seconds, the light balls left his hands and gathered in front of his chest. The light blinded Angele’s eyes. He was not sure what was inside.
Angele could barely feel any of his limbs after most of the red dots left.
The hologram showed that the red dots from his stomach and chest were moving into his brain as well.
It felt like something stabbed in his heart, which caused it to stop pumping.
Blood in Angele’s brain was almost boiling. It almost felt like the veins were going to explode.
The pain from the heart and the brain were so intense that Angele’s face started twitching.
He suddenly opened his eyes and mouth.
A silver needle shot out of his mouth and penetrated the Tree Killer Potion in front of him.
