Angele memorized the man’s name in his mind. He was certain that Reyline was hiding something from the public.
He shook his head slightly and remained quiet in the first row.
The anniversary event in the Cross was short. After all the awards had been given out, some students played several songs and danced for a while. There were also stage shows from young students.
The event ended right when the sun started setting.
The president then led Angele to the registration office and finished all the necessary documents and the two then walked to the large mushroom building in the research area of the school.
The orange sunlight shined upon the enormous black mushroom building. The building was surrounded by metal walls and the walls were coated with electric pulses.
On the left side of the gate, there was a black sign saying: ‘Permission Required’.
“This is it.” Medivh entered through the gate first.
Angele glanced around. There were several guards patrolling the area constantly and the place was deadly silent. They were the only two wizards here.
He followed after the president and entered the mushroom building.
They walked down the dark spiral staircase.
A brown wooden door appeared by the end of the stairs.
Medivh raised his right hand and knocked on the door twice.
The wooden door vanished into the darkness and a spacious hall was revealed.
Angele saw blue water waves illuminating on the walls as he stepped forward.
In the center of the hall, there was a large blue pool and that was where the shadows of waves came from. The air in the place was wet and cold.
Medivh walked past the pool and stopped by a gray stone gate on the other side. He pressed his palms together and invoked the incantation.
The gate lifted itself up.
The two entered the gate together.
Inside it was a large room that was painted in light yellow. There was an area surrounded by metal railings in the center of the room and a humongous stone was kept in the middle. The stone was about one meter wide and two meters tall. It looked like a normal stone that could be found anywhere in the mountains.
The stone was protected by a crystal barrier. There were several light wizards walking around it, and some of them were really old. They were writing down data from time to time, though Angele was not sure what study they were doing. He also saw two wizards meditating beside a table.
The wizards heard the stone gate open but it seemed like they were not concerned. Only a female wizard raised her head, glancing at the president and Angele.
“Master Medivh, isn’t the anniversary celebration still going on?” the female wizard questioned in a light tone.
Medivh shook his head. “I have a new friend here who just joined the World Stone project.”
“Is that so?” The female wizard responded but then lowered her head and stopped talking.
Medivh was not mad since that was seemingly how they communicated. He turned around and smiled. “Don’t worry about them. They’re just trying to focus on the study so they don’t really care about the things happening around them.”
Angele nodded slightly. “Understandable. I’m here just for the stone too.”
“Help yourself.” The president pointed at the large stone in the center. “You can exit through the tunnel on the opposite side. Just one more thing, the forcefield around the stone is unstable, thus any minor change will make the energy waves around it explode. Please proceed with caution.”
“Alright, I’ll leave you to it.”
“Thank you, master Medivh, I’ll start working on it right away.” Angele smiled.
Medivh nodded, then he turned around and left the room through the stone gate.
Angele stood by the gate and glanced around.
There were five wizards in the room. Three of them were at the Gas stage and two normal wizards. He decided not to waste any time and walked to the crystal barrier in the center.
He pressed his palms onto the surface of the crystal. It was cold and smooth. Angele could see the rough surface of the World Stone through the translucent barrier and on the stone, he noticed something that looked like fingerprints.
Tear-shaped glowing crystals lined up on the walls and they brightened up the whole room.
Angele hesitated for a second and glanced at the other wizards around the barrier. Two female wizards were doing the calculations on their notebooks and a male wizard was thinking about something with furrowed eyebrows.
None of them was interested in communicating with Angele.
“I’m sorry…” Someone interrupted him before Angele could finish.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t waste any second talking to people,” The female wizard raised her head and said. She was the one who chatted with Medivh.
“The wizards here can only stay in the room for two hours. After that, you need to leave the building for a while, because the unstable forcefield will damage your body from the long-term exposure. You can stay longer if you want but don’t risk your life,” she advised in a light tone.
“For real?” Angele’s expression turned serious and asked Zero to check the energy waves in the room. Although the energy was unstable here, it would not do any actual damage to his body, that was the reason why Zero did not warn him.
“Much appreciated.” He smiled politely but the female wizard had already lowered her head.
Angele shook his head slightly and turned around. He started observing the World Stone closely.
‘Create the task and analyze the World Stone for me.’
‘Task created, scanning the World Stone.’
‘The target is surrounded by unstable force fields so it can’t be scanned. Task failed,” the chip reported quickly.
Angele knitted his eyebrows.
‘Create the task, scan the unstable energy around the stone and create a basic model.’
‘Task created. Scanning the energy radiation. Time needed to create the model: 13 days, 21 hours, and 45 minutes.’
Angele shook his head slightly. ‘The model of the energy flow takes more than 13 days to create…The World Stone is not a joke. I can’t even scan it directly using the chip.’
Legends said that the World Stones were the portals to other realms and different World Stone would bring one to a different realm. The modern wizards spent a long time trying to activate them but none had ever succeeded.
Angele was not in a hurry. He still needed some time to learn the basic knowledge and he decided to proceed slowly with caution.
Several months later…
Inside the underground research lab.
There were only three light wizards remaining in the lab.
The three were all standing around the World Stone. Two of them were male and one of them was female. There was a man with brown short hair wearing a long white robe and a tight leather suit inside. His eyes were surrounded by golden glows and there was a silver glint on his skin.
It was Angele, who had already stayed in the lab for a long time.
“Did you get anything? Green,” The female wizard suddenly asked.
“I have some trouble here. The results I get are different from Glue’s.” Angele creased his forehead.
The handsome man with blue pupils and hair beside Angele nodded slowly. “Yeah, the difference is huge, over 0.5.”
“So this model won’t work. We need to start over again…” The female wizard looked depressed. She put down the pen and paper as she took a deep breath.
“Alright, let’s stop for the day. Let’s head back together?”
“Sure.” Angele and the man called Glue nodded together.
Angele spent months trying to study the World Stone but he only made friends with two wizards.
The two joined the school because they wanted to study the World Stone. Angele pointed out a critical error for them when they were arguing and they started communicating after that. The three formed a small group and they would trade opinions regarding the World Stone research.
Angele followed Glue and left the room. The chip only helped him create the correct model of the energy flow around the stone but he had no idea how to make the basic model for the whole stone and he did not understand why the forcefield was unstable.
Angele was progressing much faster than the other wizards here. Glue and the female wizard had already spent years in the lab but their progression was the same as Angele’s.
They left the room and the stone gate closed itself. The three stood in front of the pool.
“Sherry, you go first,” Glue said in a light tone.
“Alright then.” The female wizard named Sherry untied her hair and jumped into the pool.
Her white robe was then soaked by the water, unraveling her attractive body.
Angele and Glue stood beside the pool, staring at the lady moving around in the pool and was almost naked.
Sherry did not seem concerned about the watching her and she would not mind having some fun with them to relax. Most female wizards knew the techniques to stop the shape of their bodies from changing because of age.
She rubbed her chest slowly, trying to seduce Angele and Glue.
Angele and Glue were not interested at all. They would rather spend the time studying the World Stone.
“Come on, finish your shower. We need to use the pool too.”
“Don’t you want to have some fun with me?” There was an attractive smile on her face.
