The Wizard World - Chapter 222
Chapter 222: Situation (1)
Translator: Leo Editor: Frappe
Angele and Shiva returned to their own residences using the carriages provided after leaving the slave market.
The slaves were camping by the lake temporarily, and he asked the dwarfs to build a stone house for them. The stone house would be built on an empty area beside the lake.
The two girls were already trained to do basic housework. They could clean and organize the house perfectly. The tea they made was also tasty.
Angele named them Amy and Alice. They were homophonic to number one and number two in Anmag.
Everything was going smoothly as he had planned.
Angele did not regret his failing to buy the centaurs. If he decided to go all in for the centaurs and extract the ancient blood later. His ability might be exposed to the public as the four in the front would wonder why this young man spent so much money for the centaurs. He decided to go for other rare creatures later when he had the chance.
The great harpy produced by the evolved signet was still slumbering, and Angele was waiting for the day when she would wake up. He wanted to visit the Nightmare Realm again.
Angele continued to study the enchantment system and since he had some spare time, he wanted to figure out how to get recruited by the Six Ring High Tower.
In the southwest of the Six Ring Area.
There was a large grassland in the seemingly infinite sea of trees. The grass was cut perfectly and the area was surrounded by well-organized white flowers.
In the center of the area, there was a large gray building that looked like a humongous arched bump on the ground. It looked like the building was sliced in half and the cut was the entrance.
There were four white stone pillars supporting the building by the entrance. They looked like four floating sticks that were barely providing any help. The whole place looked mysterious.
Angele saw people in white robes stepping in and out of the arched gate. Wizards vanished into a ball of smoke after leaving the gate, and he also saw people stepping out of a ball of smoke that appeared from nowhere.
There were also people landing in front of the gate with their flying mounts. They jumped off their mounts and simply walked into the gate.
Most of the wizards around the gate had serious expressions on their faces and were not hiding their mentality waves.
There were two naked female statues in front of the gates with raised right hands and on their palms, there were two golden glowing crystals. Both statues had wings on their backs; one was on the left and the other was on the right.
A young man wearing a white robe walked out of the forest and joined the crowd. His brown short hair was eye-catching but other than that, he just looked like an average light wizard.
He was tall and slim, and there was a silver glint on the surface of his skin. His eyes were surrounded by a golden glow.
“This is the southwest branch of the Six Ring High Tower,” He raised his head, staring at the stone statues, and muttered. He could sense the energy waves released by the statues, and the energy was radiating throughout all the people entering the gate.
Only formal wizards could handle that level of radiation. Wizard apprentices would take permanent organ damage if they tried to enter using force.
“Alright. Green, I have to go now. Take care,” a light wizard beside the young man whispered. “Contact if you need anything else. I need to deliver something to my master.” The light wizard had a messy blonde hair.
“Are you the only student working for Spencer? Don’t tell me he only has one apprentice.” Angele shook his head.
“Well, I live close to the master…That might be the reason…” The light wizard was named Averan, one of Wisp’s apprentices, who broke the limit not so long ago. Angele had recently learned that Wisp’s real name was Spencer.
“Thank you for leading me to the gate. You found yourself a great master by the way.” Angele smiled. He was still doing business with Wisp.
“That’s my pleasure, master Green.” Spencer bowed to Angele politely. “Now if you’ll excuse me…”
Averan took two steps back and disappeared into the forest.
Angele turned around and walked straight toward the gate.
He stepped on the stairs and saw the wizards around talking to each other using energy particles.
Angele entered the gate and saw an enormous hall that looked like the inside of a church.
He raised his head and looked at the ceiling that was more than ten meters above him. Countless black wooden chairs lined up on the floor and a narrow path in the middle divided them into two areas.
Some light wizards already sat down on those chairs.
A long black stone pillar stood in front of the chairs quietly and there was a female light wizard reading the information on it.
The hall was deadly silent. The wizards were entering and leaving all the time, but no one spat out a single word. Most of them only sat down for several minutes before leaving. Some of them were handed small bags by the person at the entrance though some were not.
Angele checked the surroundings and sat down in a random seat.
The chair was cold and hard and there was a hint of flowery fragrance coming from it. He noticed that the other wizards would close their eyes for several seconds before standing up and leaving.
He sat on the seat and put his right fist over the chest for about five seconds.
A wizard apprentice walked to him from the right side quickly.
“Master, follow me please.” It was a middle-aged man with a blank expression on his face.
Angele looked at the man. His right arm looked stronger than his left. The man was surrounded by curses from the dead wizards, and it seemed like the wizard apprentice made some contribution to the dark wizard hunt.
“Alright.” He stood up and followed after the apprentice.
The two entered a wooden door on the left, then passed through a patio and arrived at an arena.
There were several light wizards waiting inside. They were brought here by apprentices just like him.
The wizard apprentice led Angele to the left side, and he waited alongside the other wizards.
Several minutes later, two more wizards were brought in.
The number of light wizards in the arena reached six.
“Rivalia, you again…Just give up. You come here every year.”
A thin man sneered and started mocking a handsome blonde man beside him.
“Same to you. You have never passed the test,” the blonde man responded.
“Some new faces here. Young and fresh.” The thin man glanced around and shook his head.
“Gross.” A muscular bold wizard said in a cold tone, “The hunt team will test our skills and I’ll kick your ass if they paired us together.”
“Come at me now. Why wait?” The thin man shrugged.
“F*ck off! Both of you! Noisy as f*ck!” A pretty female wizard suddenly yelled.
“So most of the people here have done something inappropriate in their lives.” The blonde man named Rivalia chuckled. He glared at Angele and the other male wizard with a hood. They were the only two that had not spoken in the arena.
“Something inappropriate? What do you mean?” Angele wondered.
The others stared at him after hearing his question. They looked surprised.
“You don’t know that joining the hunting team will remove all your criminal record?” Rivalia explained.
“I don’t.” Angele shook his head. “I’m not here for that to be honest.”
“For real? Do you know how many people die in hunting team each year?” The thin man questioned and the man with the hood also stared at Angele curiously.
Angele shook his head.
“Huh? I thought this was the only way to join the Six Ring High Tower.” Angele shrugged and forced a bitter smile on his face.
He had no idea on how to join the organization. In fact, one of his purposes was to acquire more information from the other people in the arena.
This was not only a branch for the hunting team. It was also a location that the organization used to transport the wizard apprentices and wizards. The wizard apprentices from the Sea Hawk dock would be sent to the school through the portal here.
“I want to join the enchantment department.” The person beside Angele took his hood off, revealing a long, smooth blue hair. It was a young girl and there was something wrong with her right eye as Angele could not find the pupil, and her left pupil was blue.
“How many departments are there? Could you enlighten me?” Angele asked politely.
“The enchantment department, the hunting team, the herbalism department, and the potions department. That’s all I know,” the girl with blue hair responded.
Angele wanted to ask something else, but he was interrupted by a female voice.
“Come here if you want to join the hunting team, wizards. If you wish to join the other department, please stay at your position.”
The voice echoed in the arena, but Angele did not find where the voice was coming from.
Only the girl with blue hair and Angele stayed in the arena, while the others followed a wizard apprentice who led them to a different room.
Angele decided to stay here because he made a promise to Wisp’s organization that he would not reveal his potion concocting talent to any of the three major organizations. He needed to make others think that he was just an ordinary potion master.
Angele considered the benefits and decided to keep his promise. He only had basic knowledge about potion concoction. Potion masters would suspect how he concocted all the potions with minimum experience. Zero did most of the work for him, but that was not how potion masters in this world concocted their potions.
If he could successfully join the Six Ring High Tower, he would be able to acquire a lot of new knowledge.
A wizard apprentice walked to Angele and the girl with blue hair.
“Masters, please follow me.”
The two followed the wizard apprentice down the hallway and arrived at another hall.
“So which department are you trying to apply for?” the apprentice asked politely.
“Enchantment,” they answered one by one.
“Alright, Cynthia. Take her to the master that’s in charge of the enchantment department.” The apprentice gave the order to a female apprentice on the side.
The girl was led to the exit of the hall quickly.
“Master, this way,” the apprentice said politely.
Angele nodded slightly and followed him out of the hall. They entered a garden with colorful plants everywhere. There were two old light wizards chatting beside a tiny clear pond.
“Master Ander, master Vista.” The wizard apprentice stepped forward and bowed to the two old wizards.
Their hair was white and messy. Angele looked at the wrinkles on their faces and wondered how old they were.
Angele scanned the two using Zero. The mentality waves they were releasing indicated that they were at the Liquid stage.
He compressed his mentality so that other wizards could not determine which stage he was at. In order to disguise himself, Angele decided to release a mentality wave that was identical to the level of a Gas stage wizard.
Angele could not imagine what would happen if those old people found out that he reached Liquid stage before 30 years old…
