“What happened?” Angele asked Nancy to take the two kids to the house first.
Shiva started explaining after the kids left.
“I think the unstable forcefield was the reason but I haven’t gotten the report yet. If you have time, you can go check it out.”
Angele narrowed his eyes and thought for a second. “I know the force field is unstable but I don’t think it’ll explode on its own. I’ll go take a look later. Was any wizard there when it exploded?”
“Not sure. It has just happened.” Shiva shrugged.
“Alright. We can talk about this later.” Angele led Shiva into the house.
The two sat in the living room and talked about the research Shiva was doing recently. The two kids played with the dwarf knight around the house and they caught some fish from the lake.
When the sun started setting, Shiva and his grandchildren left the house after having dinner with Angele.
Angele changed into another robe after the three left and headed toward the school right away by means of the flying mount.
He landed on top of the mushroom building after traveling across the border of the Six Ring area.
There were several other eagles already parked on the platform, there must be other wizards who were contacted about the explosion of the World Stone.
Angele walked straight to the lab area after leaving the mushroom building.
He saw several wizards chatting beside the mushroom building above the World Stone lab.
They glanced at Angele for a second but they did not greet him and they just continued their conversation with their brows furrowed.
Angele only had two friends in the school, Sherry and Glue, while the other wizards formed their own research groups. Although he knew their names and backgrounds, he barely talked to them.
He pursed his lips and walked past them, entering the door of the mushroom building. He walked down the stairs and quickly arrived at the gate of the World Stone lab.
The gate was wide open, and Angele saw the blue pool.
He stepped into the gate and felt the warm wind blowing over his face.
‘Check if the air is normal,’ he ordered.
Several rows of data appeared on the left side of his sight.
‘You’re being affected by the polluting radiation. 18.15 degrees per second.’
The number started increasing rapidly as Angele advanced further.
It felt like walking toward a humongous stove. His skin started burning as he got closer.
He unleashed frigid wind to reduce the temperature of the metal barrier that covered his body.
‘Build the forcefield model for the World Stone.’
‘Task created…Analyzing the force field and radiation energy around you…’ Zero reported right away.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes, he stood beside the pool and stopped advancing. The radiation was too strong for him to handle.
About ten minutes later.
The blue light dots disappeared.
‘Analysis stopped, more mentality needed…’ Zero reported back.
‘How much mentality do I need?’
‘More than 75.’
Angele stood by the pool quietly staring at the exploded gate on the other side. There were stone pieces everywhere.
He could see that most of the object was destroyed through the broken gate and the World Stone was surrounded by some black fog.
Several minutes later, Angele heard footsteps coming from behind.
He turned his head around.
It was Glue, the Gas stage wizard with blue eyes and blue hair. He walked to Angele and put up a blue light barrier to help reduce the radiation.
“How’s the situation?” Glue asked.
“No idea. I got the information not so long ago.” Angele shook his head. “According to Shiva, the stone exploded about two days ago.”
“It too happened to the one in the Six Ring’s school area,” Glue muttered as he stared at the World Stone through the broken door.
Angele looked at Glue. “So what happened to that one?”
“The unstable forcefield and radiation pollution lasted for 12 years. The World Stone became extremely unstable after that and it was sealed in the lab by the wizards from the school.” Glue knitted his eyebrows.
Angele bit his lips. If it needed that much time to recover, his plan would have to be halted.
“Where’s Sherry?” he questioned.
“She’s the one who told me about this actually. Sherry was sent to the Monti Empire by her family. She will be back in three years.” Glue shook his head. “Well, the only thing we can do is to wait right now. No one has expected the explosion.”
Angele nodded. “Yeah. Master Shiva said that the explosion injured three wizards that were in the lab and they are now being treated by wizard Marina. We’ll have to stop our study.”
“Alright, I’ll be leaving now. Talk to you later.” Glue shook his head and left.
“I’m leaving too.” Angele sighed with mixed feelings and left with Glue.
The chip could not do the analysis him as his mentality was not high enough and it was impossible for him to determine the reason why the World Stone exploded at the moment.
Angele saw two men with black hair waiting for them as he stepped out of the door of the mushroom building.
“Greetings, master Glue.” The two bowed to Glue.
They saw Angele standing beside Glue and bowed to him as well.
“Professor, Fir just told us that you’re here.”
The two were Angele’s students, Glenn and Baren, and they were from the other side of the Gem Sea as well.
“Yeah, how are your missions?” Angele asked a random question as he walked alongside them.
“Pretty good. We’re here to talk to you,” Glenn lowered his head and responded politely. “I want to purchase the basic knowledge of the Fundamentals of Negative Energy Particles from you, master.”
“I want to purchase the basic knowledge for Electric Energy Particles,” Baren spoke after Glenn.
“So the reward for the missions was pretty good?” Angele slightly nodded and smiled.
“Just enough magic stones for the knowledge.”
“Alright, come with me.” Angele left the lab area with them.
There were not many students in the school. Most of the wizard apprentices were either out for missions or studying in the dorms, so the place was quiet and empty.
The wizards or wizard apprentices he met on the path were all walking quickly, not wanting to dally around.
Angele led the two wizard apprentices to his office in the mushroom building of the teaching area. Each of them paid 20 regular magic stones for the basic knowledge they wanted. The price was discounted as they were Angele’s students. He stored the required information in two crystal orbs and gave them to the students.
Using crystal orbs to store information was common among the wizards and wizard apprentices. Transferring the knowledge into the crystal only required a small amount of mentality and the information would disappear after about two years. If a wizard wanted to keep the information for a longer duration, he would have to purchase special potions, but those potions were expensive and could only be used once.
After saying goodbye to the two wizard apprentices, Angele went straight to the underground library.
The library was what brought the Cross fame in Nola.
Angele had already scanned a large number of books into the database using the chip. Although Zero filtered out the duplicated or falsified information, it would still take him a long time to completely study all of them.
If he could record all the books into the database, his future research might become much easier.
There were no spell books in the library but he had found the knowledge of enchantment, crafting, potion concoction, arts, music, and philosophy. The knowledge helped Angele understand the culture of the world better.
He finally finished scanning all the books after three days.
Angele left the school right away and returned to his territory.
He started doing experiments on ancient bloodlines again. He was also waiting for the news on the World Stone.
Sadly, nothing changed after about one month. The forcefield around the World Stone was still unstable. Angele visited the school twice during the time and taught one public class but he still could not get close to the World Stone.
Time flew by. Angele received a message that he did not expect while waiting for the World Stone to stabilize.
Warm water was splashing over Angele’s head.
He was taking a shower in the bathroom. He raised his head and tried to clean his brown hair.
The water dripped down his chin and hit the stone floor.
The bathroom was small and it was filled up with steam.
Someone suddenly knocked on the door.
“Master Green, here’s a letter for you.” Alice’s voice came from outside the door.
“Huh? Is it in a cylinder?” Angele questioned.
“Yes, and it’s from the east.” Angele could barely hear Alice’s voice.
He had built the shower room by himself using Metal Mastery. The water it let out came from a special showerhead on the ceiling. With a flick of his finger, the water stopped.
Angele grabbed a white towel that was hanging on the wall and wiped the remaining water off his body. He then quickly covered his private part with the towel and opened the door.
Alice was wearing a white one piece with her long black hair trailing over her shoulders. The twin’s bodies had already stopped growing after several years. Their bodies were well balanced, and they had long legs, slim waists, and average-sized breasts.
Angele stepped out of the bathroom and took the black wooden cylinder that Alice handed to him. He glanced at Alice and then patted her head.
“You look great, Alice. Thank you for bringing me the letter. You may leave now.”
“Yes, master.” Alice blushed. She then turned around and walked away quickly.
Angele opened the wooden cylinder carefully after Alice left.
Inside it was a translucent crystal orb and there was a black rune flowing in the center.
