The great harpy’s bloodline evolved from the regular ancient harpy bloodline. Angele had only acquired it by luck, therefore it was nearly impossible for him to duplicate the process.
If he wanted to access the Nightmare Realm anytime he wanted, the World Stone would be his only hope. Legends said that the World Stone was a portal to other realms.
It was the main reason why Angele decided to visit the school.
After finishing the tour around the school, the wizard apprentice named Fir took the two kids to the events, and Merrat led Angele to the school’s main building.
Although Angele was still disguising his mentality waves, he was still a high-rank wizard here.
In the president’s meeting room.
A young-looking blonde man put down his pen and stood up, staring at Angele with a smile.
“Welcome to the Cross, master Shiva already introduced you to me. Wizard Green.” The man shook hands with Angele. “Nice to meet you. My name is Medivh, president of the school. Thank you for bringing wizard Green here, wizard Merrat.”
“It’s my pleasure.” Merrat smiled. “I’ll leave you two alone.”
Medivh nodded slightly.
The door was closed.
“Please, take a seat.” Medivh walked to the sofa on the left and sat down with Angele.
“Shiva has already told me why you decided to come here. For the World Stone, right?” He put his hands on the handles of the teacups on the table and heated the dark drink inside with fire energy particles.
“Of course. I don’t think I’m the only one here. People will fight for it, literally.” Angele remained calm.
“You’re correct.” Medivh was not concerned about what Angele just said. He just continued, “The Cross is dying. Without the World Stone, no one will come here. Since you’re a Gas stage wizard, I’ll honor you with the title of school professor. Your access to the World Stone research project is granted and you’re allowed to read the rare books in the underground library. There’s only one thing I need you to do. Recruit at least three wizard apprentices for the school and they’ll be taken in as your students. You will also need to teach at least two public lessons each year and the money you earned from those lessons will be shared with the school. You need to be the leader of the field trips once every ten years.”
Medivh looked at Angele after finishing telling him the rules. “Are the rules acceptable to you?”
“I’m fine with them.” Angele nodded. “How long do I need to stay in the organization?”
“Ten years. However, you need to be prepared. We have spent dozens of years doing researches on the stone, but we learned nothing,” Medivh warned.
“I understand. It’s an ancient artifact and we don’t have enough information on how to activate it.” Angele nodded. “Did you perform any experiments with it?”
“The structure of the World Stone is extremely complicated and it can’t be moved in any way. There are usually unstable energy waves surrounding the stone so we have to be cautious. Although the three major organizations are trying to figure out how to use it as well, they still haven’t made any progress,” Medivh explained. “If you’re fine with that, we can sign the contract. It’s a contract that’s protected by the three major organizations.”
“For sure.” Even if Angele could not activate the World Stone, he would still be able to gain a lot of knowledge from the library.
Medivh handed over a contract specially prepared for Angele. The contract was only valid when the World Stone was real.
The contract would be effective for ten years.
“There are three major research subjects in the school: The Theory of Everything, the Basic Calculation, and the Fundamentals of Spell Models. You can assign yourself as a teacher to those courses. And if you want to teach something else, just inform the registration office first.” Medivh smiled. “Also, thank you for joining us!”
Angele responded with a smile. He finished checking the contract and signed his name on it.
He then tapped the bottom of the page.
A twisted black snake mark appeared on the contract right away.
Someone knocked on the door as they finished signing the contract.
“Please come in.”
A female wizard apprentice pushed the door open.
“Master Medivh, master Reyline is here. The supply from the east also has arrived and we need someone to pick it up. One more thing, master Gloria wants me to ask you if the charts are finished. She needs it urgently.”
“Got it. I’ll finish them as soon as possible.” Medivh’s brows furrowed.
“I’ll go meet up with master Shiva then. I’ll inform the registration office about the course I’ll be teaching too.” Angele stood up.
“I have plenty of time, don’t worry. Have a drink first. We can go check the festival out together. I think professor Shiva has already finished organizing the security department.”
“You’re welcome. One of the alumni from our school will attend the event as well and the most talented young wizard in the Six Ring High Tower is here too, Wizard Reyline. I can introduce you to him.”
“Reyline?” Angele stopped for a second. “The Perfect Wizard of the younger generation, Reyline?”
The teaching area.
In one of the classrooms, a group of young students was chatting with each other.
“You know what? We met a generous wizard when visiting our grandpa. He gave each of us one egg of the Lulu Bird,” Morrow held a red bird egg in his hand and said.
“I want Cococia to see our Lulu eggs…He only has a dream bird’s egg and he showed it to everyone.”
“Lucky you…We went to the Tora Lake last time but we found nothing.” A boy sitting next to Morrow was jealous.
“Monkarito’s aunt’s house is right beside the Tora Lake. Someone killed his aunt’s purple bees one day and Monkarito was punished hard by his mother. I hope you it wasn’t you.” Morrow shook his head.
“Hey Tori, where did you go during the vacation?”
“The Mist Forest, my father took me there and we caught two tri-colored chicken. We also collected many different materials.” Tori was a young boy with freckles all over his face. He was waving his hands while speaking.
“Nice, I had grilled tri-colored chicken once and it was very tasty.” Sophie looked at Tori.
“You got any plan for your next location?” a girl asked.
“Grandpa said he’ll visit wizard Green’s house with us. His house is beside a small lake so we can swim there,” Sophie answered. “However, we need to pass the test first.”
“I’m so jealous…I failed the Theory of Everything test again. Master Van’s questions are way too hard. I think I’ll have to stay at home and study.”
“Go talk to Barbara. She has a feather pen that’ll write the answer for you,” Tori interrupted.
“Cheating is wrong.” The girl shook her head.
“Come on.” Tori pursed his lips.
“Well, let’s move. Master Reyline is here. Our event is also starting soon,” Morrow yelled.
All the students rushed out of the classroom and headed to where the award ceremony was being held.
Angele sat among a whole row of light wizards and the people beside him were chatting about music, painting, gardening, and sculptures. Some were talking about the things they had accomplished recently and the events that had happened in the organizations.
The things they were talking about were not important at all but it seemed like they were enjoying the topics. The two light wizards behind him were even arguing about what would make a perfect painting.
These white robes had lived in the peaceful Nola for too long, that they did need not worry about being ambushed every day. The biggest challenge to them was probably the political wars going on in their organizations. Some of them had developed these hobbies after realizing that they could not progress any further.
The white robes were enjoying their lives since they had no pressure and no restrictions. They just needed to follow the rules made by the three major organizations.
Angele forced a smile on his face. He was sitting in the first row, but it was boring as hell.
“The president must have begged master Reyline to come here. The school is under a lot of pressure right now so they need a way to attract students. The situation is getting worse every day since the organizations around the area are developing quickly recently,” a light wizard whispered to the wizard beside him.
“You mean the River Arrow? Yeah, that organization is expanding like crazy. I was told that they recruited a lot of formal wizards due to the benefits they could provide.”
About half an hour later, a young man with blonde hair walked to the stage. Medivh and two other light wizards followed after him.
The man was handsome and he was wearing a white robe with golden edges. It seemed like he was the Perfect Wizard everyone was talking about.
The host started introducing the man.
Based on the mentality wave Reyline was releasing, Angele could tell that the man was very close to the Crystal stage. He was weaker than Reyline at the moment.
Reyline suddenly looked at Angele when Angele was still observing the Perfect Wizard.
They stared at each other for a second and they were both surprised.
Reyline had some special techniques and he knew Angele was trying to hide his true power the instant he looked at him. However, Angele was not concerned. He did not detect any wizard curse on the young man’s body, which meant Reyline had never killed any wizard. He doubted if Reyline had any practical fighting experience.
The president started giving a speech after the host finished the introduction. Reyline was awarded a medal and gave a short speech to thank the school before he left the stage.
