“Come on…I need to meet someone soon.” Angele was speechless. He checked the time using the chip. “It’s almost 7 o’clock. Your young sister is still waiting for you, right?”
Sherry slapped her forehead. “I almost forgot.” She quickly finished showering and black liquid spurted out of her body. It dissolved in the blue water within seconds.
She quickly left the pool, then she pressed her right hand on her chest and used the fire energy particles to dry her clothes.
Angele and Glue jumped into the pool. Black liquid spurted out of their bodies as well.
“The energy pollution from the World Stone is ridiculous. Without the purifying pool, it’ll take us much longer to deal with the pollution.” Sherry chuckled.
“I agree that building the pool was a brilliant idea.” Glue nodded slightly.
The three left the hall together after purifying their body. They walked up the spiral staircase and left the black mushroom building.
It was dark outside. Angele said goodbye to Glue and Sherry, then headed to the parking lot. He walked to the platform and there was a black eagle waiting for him quietly.
A wizard apprentice was feeding the eagle carefully with some fist-sized black beetles.
“Ah, you’re here.” It was the wizard apprentice named Fir. She was assigned to Angele as a personal assistant. Her family was not wealthy so she was doing many part-time jobs in the school, which included feeding the eagles.
“Thank you.” Angele smiled politely and jumped on the back of the eagle. –
The eagle raised its wings and rushed forward as it jumped off the platform. It slid for a while and drew an arc in the air before increasing the altitude.
The eagle flew straight to the east and after about twenty minutes, it started hovering above a public forest.
Angele looked down and noticed an empty ground hiding among the countless green trees. There was a black dot in the center of the empty area with nothing around it.
“That’s the place.” Angele pulled the reins and guided the eagle to the landing area.
The eagle started lowering the altitude and landed on the empty ground after several minutes.
A humongous vulture was parked on the empty ground and beside it, there was a female wizard wearing a white robe with a silver edge. The lady’s long black hair draped over her shoulder and she smiled after seeing Angele landing on the ground.
Angele jumped off the eagle right after it stopped moving.
“Long time no see. How’s everything going for you? Is your grandmother still asking you to get married?” Angele smiled.
“It’s not a problem although I don’t know what she is thinking…I asked you to come here because…” Isabel bit her lips and hesitated.
“Talk to me. What happened?” Angele noticed that something was different this time. Isabel was a good friend of his and they had communicated many times using the runes. However, it seemed like Isabel was struggling.
Isabel finally raised her head and looked at Angele.
“Well, actually, my grandmother is pressuring me a lot recently. I’m just imagining what it’ll be like if you’re…my partner.”
“Haha, that’s not going to happen I think. Alright, how’s your progress? Do you have enough rhino blood?” Angele shook his head slightly.
“I’m fully prepared thanks to you. I want to invite you to the ritual. It’ll be held on February 15 next year.” Isabel nodded.
“So you have all the necessary resources, right? Do you need my help?”
“No, it’s fine. My grandmother said that my success rate should be high. I prepared so many years for it and my family has collected countless rare resources to aid me. I think I’ll be fine,” Isabel responded in a serious tone.
“Sounds good.” Angele nodded. He assumed that Isabel had more than 50% of chance to successfully advance to the next stage. The Crystal stage was the highest stage in rank 1 and the required mentality level was much higher than the Liquid stage. Isabel had a strong family to back him up so he was not too worried about it.
Angele had the help from the chip so he could find the best way to increase his success rate. Ordinary wizards had to rely on rare materials and test their effects one by one.
“But…there’s still a chance that I’ll fail. If I fail to advance to the next stage, my life energy and potential will be drained. That’s the reason why my grandmother is trying to find me a partner…” Isabel did not continue to speak but Angele knew what she was trying to imply.
“If your potential is burnt out, you won’t be able to bear a child with high potential, right?” Angele shook his head again. “Master Flan is doing this for the future of your family.”
“Yes, I understand.” Isabel nodded.
The two stood on the empty ground and chatted with each other face to face.
Isabel jumped onto the back of her vulture as the sky got darker and darker. She vanished into the dark night with the vulture within seconds.
Angele stood on the ground alone and watched the black dot disappear from the sky. He then started walking back to his eagle. The eagle belonged to the school but he applied for the permit to use it for personal reasons.
He took several steps forward and realized someone was hiding in the dark.
“Reveal yourself!” he suddenly shouted.
A dark shadow walked out of the bush behind the eagle, yet Angele did not hear any footsteps.
“Great. It seems like I made a wise decision. You should be Isabel’s husband. You’re a much better choice.” The man removed his hood, revealing a pretty face without any eyebrows.
“Master Flan?!” Angele was surprised. He involuntarily stepped back immediately and kept a safe distance from her.
“Why are you here, master Flan? You want me to marry Isabel? Are you serious?” He took a deep breath and tried to calm down.
Flan stood beside the eagle. She looked like a white mask floating in the air as her body blended into the darkness perfectly.
She kept looking at Angele.
“I’m not joking. Isabel’s ritual is coming. You two should get married within two months. I’ll send Isabel to your home. Reproduce at least two children for me within a year. I don’t care what technique you use, but you must meet my requirement.” It sounded like Flan was giving orders.
“Within a year?” Angele was speechless. “I like Isabel but…it’s nearly impossible for us wizards to have two kids in such a short period of time…I think you know the reason too.”
“One year is a long time. How much time do you need then? Just tell me.” Flan creased her forehead.
Angele suddenly turned his head around and stared at the sky before he answered the question. He heard an infant crying.
His heart was beating intensely. It was a special feeling that brought by the connection between two people with same blood.
“It’s…my child…My child is born.” It would only happen when a wizard’s child was born. Angele visualized the scene that a tired woman just gave birth to an infant in a dark room on the other side of the Gem Sea. There was still some umbilical cord left on the baby.
“What happened?” Flan was not sure what was going on and she looked at the sky as well, but the only thing she could see was the night sky. “Whatever, I have already made the decision. You better follow my plan.” She shook her head, then turned around and walked into the shadows. The lady turned into white fog and disappeared into the air.
Angele lowered his head and deeply whispered under his breath, “It’s my son…My son is born…”
A blue communication flashed on his right hand.
He remained silent for several seconds and held his fist tight.
“Nancy, hire the best Knight and rank 3 wizard apprentice you can find. Send them to our homeland and find two people for me.”
“Sure. Who are you looking for, master?” Nancy responded to the message immediately.
“A woman named Caitlyn and a boy that was just born. If that boy has potential, bring both of them back to me. If not…give them money…make sure they can live a good life there.”
Angele raised his head and stared at the sky again. Several seconds later, he jumped onto the eagle and flew into the air.
In the night sky.
Isabel was on the back of her flying mount and was chatting with someone using the communication rune.
“I went to meet an old friend.” She smiled.
“Oh? How did it go? You don’t really have a real friend, do you?” A clear male voice responded to the message.
“It went well. He’s my only friend.”
“So, did you tell him that…”
“No, I didn’t. I don’t want to trouble him too much. It’s my problem.” Isabel lowered her voice.
“…Well, not a big problem. Although it’ll be hard, we still have hope.” The man stopped for a second and chuckled. “Actually, without him, you won’t be able to leave the family for so many times and we’ll never meet each other. I should thank him too.”
“I’m glad you understand, Raymond.”
“I’ll try to break my limit as soon as possible so your grandmother will agree on our marriage,” the man said in a serious tone.
“Best of luck.” Isabel nodded. “I love you, Raymond.”
“I love you too, Isabel.” The man cut the connection afterward.
