Angele did not think that his first child would have the talent to become a formal wizard.
However, everything would still depend on the actual situation.
He grabbed the hoe again and started loosening the soil again.
Nancy was waiting on the side. She had a bucket of water beside her feet.
“Master, we have just received a letter from the division. Do you want to read it now?” Nancy asked. She was wearing a gray wool one-piece and black cotton tights. She looked elegant and sexy in the outfit.
Nancy had various types of tights and Angele found her charming wearing them. The tights in this world were usually worn in cold weather and they were loved by the noble girls and female wizards.
Angele’s forehead creased. “The division? Not the school? There are so many things going on recently.”
“Yes, most of the letters we received are from the division and the school. And the president of the Cross wants you to start recruiting wizard apprentices,” Nancy added.
Angele gave her the right to read the unsealed letters as most of them were not important.
“Fine…” Angele pointed toward the water bucket beside Nancy’s feet. The translucent water was pulled out of the bucket by energy particles and landed on the loose soil with a black seed already planted in it.
The water was absorbed by the black soil quickly.
After watering the seed, Angele put down the hoe and checked the time.
“Show me the letters,” he ordered as he headed back to the house.
Nancy answered politely.
The two returned to the house. Angele sat down on the sofa in the living room, and Amy served him with a glass of warm milk.
“Master, the dwarfs reported that the dorms for the slaves were completed. Do you want them to start building the botanical garden now?” Amy asked as she put down the milk.
There were too many things going on recently, Angele had almost forgotten that he asked the dwarfs to build the dorms and the botanical garden.
“Yeah, of course. Just follow the original plan. I have more than enough magic stones to pay for their work. Nancy oversees this, so ask her the next time you have questions,” he responded in a deep tone.
Amy went to talk to the dwarfs right away.
Nancy found the letters and handed them over to Angele. They were written on two pieces of wooden boards.
Angele read through the letter and confirmed that the seal was left by the president himself.
The president was asking him to start teaching a class and recruit wizard apprentices. Each professor needed to recruit at least two wizard apprentices according to the contract.
The other letter was from Shiva, who said he was still working on a defensive magic circle that could stop students from cheating during tests by monitoring their communication messages.
It also mentioned that he wanted to visit Angele with his grandchildren during vacation. Shiva had to take care of the kids as their parents left the area for a mission. He wanted to visit Angele and discuss his recent findings in his research.
Angele replied to Shiva right away immediately and said that he would wait for them to come.
He created a schedule and listed the things he needed to do.
Angele leaned his back against the sofa and took a deep breath.
‘So many things to do…’ He shook his head slightly.
“Nancy, how long have you been serving me?” He stared at the girl.
“Several years, master,” Nancy lowered her head and responded calmly.
Angele nodded. “Don’t worry, I’ll propose to you one day.” He stood up and walked to Nancy, slowly moving his hand into her dress.
Nancy’s skin was warm, soft, and elastic.
He rubbed her butt and legs for a while before moving to the crotch.
Her body could barely handle the excitement that she almost fell into Angele’s arms.
“Master Green…at least do it in the bedroom, please…”
Angele smiled, then he carefully lifted her up and headed to the second floor.
“Don’t worry. I promised you that I won’t touch you before we get married, but we can still have some fun, right?”
He slowly rubbed Nancy’s private area, which resulted in her being able to barely talk at the moment. Angele could see that her face was flushed red. Nancy’s body was sensitive. She rested her head on Angele’s shoulder, whose eyes then narrowed. It seemed like she was enjoying the moment.
Everything was progressing as Angele planned.
He went to the signal obelisk and filled out the application at the message desk. He paid a lot of magic stones and finally got his request approved. The only thing Angele needed to do was to wait for the people he hired to travel to the other side of the Gem Sea.
The dwarfs spent about half a month to build a large botanical garden in Angele’s territory. It had the size of a soccer field. It looked like a large white worm that was lying on the ground. He also used the trading tower to purchase plant seeds and he wanted to hire professional gardeners to look after the plants for him.
The crops and plants in the botanical garden could provide enough food for the slaves he purchased. Angele had already spent a lot of money on taking care of the slaves’ daily lives. Furthermore, the daily supplies could only be purchased from the Bennis family. He could save some money in the long term if the botanical garden could be maintained properly.
It would take about one year for the botanical garden to start producing food for the territory. Angele had also asked the dwarfs to build him the basic processing factories around the garden, such as the mill and the oil mill.
Angele recruited two wizard apprentices from the school as his students. Both apprentices were male and they were well-educated. The two were both from the other side of the Gem Sea. Although their talent level was average, he still took them in.
The two wizard apprentices needed to pay a certain number of magic stones to the school if they wanted to do their research with the professors. However, Angele gave them a big discount. It was just like in Ramsoda when master Liliana sold him the Black Lead Potion for a discounted price because Angele was her student.
They would study much harder if they paid for the knowledge and that was the reason why everything in the school had a price.
Angele finished most of the things listed on his schedule and he spent the rest of his time concocting potions and reading the books sent to him by the potions department of the organization.
He scanned all the books into the database using Zero and returned them right away. Ander did most of the work for Angele in the organization and he was not complaining.
Time flew by. Nothing exciting happened. Angele barely had any time to rest.
One year later…
The bright sunlight of early morning shined upon the land.
Beside the white house, there was a small wooden dock and a brown wooden boat was tied to the leg-sized stake.
Several green leaves were floating on the surface of the water beside the boat.
A young man wearing a black swordsman’s suit was fishing on the boat quietly.
The place was deadly silent. A pretty girl with blonde hair trailing over her shoulders was walking to the man quickly.
After several seconds, the girl arrived at the dock.
“Master Green, there’s a message from the signal obelisk.”
“Huh?” The young man was Angele, who then put down the fishing rod and stood up slowly.
His brown hair was much longer than before and the golden glow around his eyes was almost faded, revealing a pair of black pupils.
There was still a silver glint on his skin and his body was protected by a thin layer of metal barrier.
“When did the message arrive?” He jumped to the dock from the boat and walked to the lake shore.
“Just now. I brought it to you right away,” Nancy responded then she handed a small crystal orb over to him.
The crystal orb was about the size of a fist and there was a nail-sized red rune spinning inside it.
Angele grabbed the crystal orb and threw it into the air, releasing a distorted wave.
The crystal floated in the air and the red rune inside stopped spinning.
A white light screen was displayed in front of Angele.
A clear image visualized on the surface of the screen within seconds.
A blonde man wearing a silver heavy armor suit was standing in a tiny room. A black greatsword was held in his right hand and a helmet in his left.
“I’m sorry, master. We arrived at the land in the second year of the mission safely and we found the people you wanted right away. Sadly, the child had birth defects and passed away about three months ago. The lady named Caitlyn is still here,” the man pursed his lips and said.
“Passed away?” Angele was surprised. He sighed and felt depressed. It was his first child after all.
The image on the light screen changed and a dark room showed up.
The walls of the room were made of black stone and they were covered with relief sculptures.
A pretty lady with blonde hair was lying on a bed in the center of the room.
It seemed like she was in a coma.
The lady was around thirty years old, and Angele could see the crow’s feet around her eyes. The black collar around the lady’s neck caught his attention.
