Angele lowered his hand as the flower-shaped rune disappeared.
He sat on the sofa, then he brought the glass to his mouth and sipped some milk. The warm white liquid left a sweet and creamy taste on his tongue.
“Alice, grab me the pen and paper,” he yelled at the door.
“Got it,” Alice had no problem hearing Angele’s voice outside the house.
Several minutes later, Alice brought him a yellow leather scroll, a bottle of ink, and a feather pen.
Angele grabbed the feather pen, opened the ink bottle, and dipped the pen in it. He flattened the scroll and started writing a reply to master Liliana’s letter.
He accepted Liliana’s offer and showed that he was happy about her recovery. Angele also wrote that he wanted to talk to Liliana directly using the telescope.
He wrote down the address on the bottom of the scroll and encrypted it.
Half an hour later, he rolled the scroll up and tapped on it, then a black twisted snake pattern flashed on its surface for a second.
Alice had already brought him the wooden cylinder, so Angele threw the scroll into the cylinder and sealed it with wax.
“Take it to the postal office and tell them to just drop it at the proper location. Someone will pick it up.” Angele handed the cylinder to Alice.
“I’ll be leaving now.”
Angele stood up after Alice stepped out of the door.
He walked to the second floor and entered the study, then took out a black telescope from a black case under the desk.
He put the telescope on the bookshelf and used several silver strings to bind it in one of the slots.
The telescope pointed at the floor and released a ray of white light.
It stopped moving after releasing the light.
Angele waited for the response patiently.
About ten minutes later, a tall person walked into the light and their body took form.
That person was wearing a long yellow robe with long black hair trailing over her shoulders. It was Isabel.
“What’s the matter?” Isabel asked in a light tone. “We just talked to each other not so long ago.”
“Well, how’s your life? In the White Tooth Castle?” Angele stared at Isabel calmly.
“Raymond is treating me very well.” Isabel had a gentle smile on her face.
“Good then. I have just one question. Do you know that Six Ring High Tower’s headquarters will recruit wizards from the divisions?” Angele went straight to the question.
“To the headquarters?” The smile disappeared from Isabel’s face.
“Oh, are you being sent to the headquarters?” Suddenly, a feminine voice joined the conversation. A blonde lady wearing a white silky shirt entered the scene.
It was a lady with a clean face. She had a confident smile on her face and she was scratching her head.
“I’m Raymond. So, you’re the only friend Isabel has? You don’t look…special.”
She was mocking Angele.
Angele stayed calm and observed the woman called Raymond. He did not expect to talk to her during his conversation with Isabel.
“You’re Raymond?” His eyebrow furrowed. “Don’t you think that interrupting our conversation is rude?”
“Huh? Did you just say that I’m rude?” Raymond chuckled. “Ha, people don’t usually talk to me like that. I thought you were just using Isabel for her resources. It seems like you have guts.”
“I don’t care what you think about me.” Angele remained calm. Although Raymond was Isabel’s partner, he never liked her. The challenges that Raymond had put Isabel through were ridiculous.
Angele also thought that Raymond was just playing with Isabel. But never had she expected Isabel to treat the relationship seriously. However, Isabel passed through all the impossible challenges Raymond set up and Raymond decided to pay her back. That was the reason why Raymond fell in love with Isabel.
Angele remembered the days that Isabel supported him with all the resources she had. It moved him a lot.
“Well, I apologize for what I just said. I’m just curious about you.” Raymond bowed slightly. “I can tell you about the headquarters of the Six Ring High Tower.”
“Huh? Thanks, master Raymond.” Angele shook his head and smiled.
He knew that Raymond’s intention was just to see what Isabel’s only friend looked like. Also, it was very likely that Isabel had already told her about the rhino blood.
“The headquarters of the Six Ring High Tower sits in the center of the land, Omandis. The road to Omandis is blocked by mountains. You can only travel to that place with flying mounts. It’ll cost people a lot of money and time, so the headquarters only communicates with the divisions when necessary.”
“Only a few of the wizards that were sent to the headquarters returned to the divisions. They caught the opportunity and wanted to advance to the next rank or division. You can find much better resources in Omandis. There were wizards that declined the offer because they wanted to save money and enjoy their lives in Nola.”
Raymond stopped for a second, then she continued, “Most importantly, there are many dangerous creatures living in the mountains. You may get killed even if you’re on a flying mount. You need to prepare for that if you want to go there.”
“Is there anything else I need to be careful with?” Angele knew the trip would not be easy.
“You’ll be guarding the resources that are sent to the headquarters on your way there so you need to protect the resources. Ah, also…” Raymond pursed her lips. “You know the Perfect Wizard, right? The talented male wizard named Reyline is selected too. He’s a bi*ch. I fought with him multiple times.”
“Alright, I’ll keep that in mind.”
“That’s all I know. The headquarters of Six Ring High Tower is a mystery since they barely make any announcements to the public. You’re a member of their division but the wizards in the headquarters will just treat you like a stranger.” Raymond shrugged and cut off the communication.
The light disappeared from the floor.
Angele closed his eyes and rethought the words Raymond said. He took down the telescope and returned it to the case.
He then took out a bronze telescope from the drawer.
Angele tapped on the telescope after stabilizing it with silver strings.
The white light was released from the telescope right away and an old man in a white robe appeared in the light. He was standing in front of a large table and it seemed like he was drawing something.
The old man turned around after hearing the noise.
“Green, I’m doing an enchantment experiment right now. Say it quickly if you want something,” Shiva raised his head and said, his hands not stopping.
“Sure, I just want to ask you about the headquarters of Six Ring High Tower.” Angele got straight to the point.
“The headquarters? You want to go to Omandis?” Shiva was surprised. He stopped drawing runes and stared at Angele.
“I’m considering it. It seems like a great opportunity for me.”
“Well, he’s not your friend then. He wants you gone.” Shiva shook his head. “A trip to the headquarters may sound exciting but weak wizards will die on the way there. You’re not safe in the sky. Rumor says that only half of the wizards will make it to Omandis.”
“I heard that Reyline will be going there too. He’s the Perfect Wizard, right?”
“Reyline, huh? Well…it’s dangerous. Just think twice before you make the decision. If the team is strong enough, you’ll be able to survive the mountains. If the team is too weak, the magical creatures will target you.” Shiva’s expression turned serious. “I suggest you stay in Nola. It’s nice and peaceful. The bastards in the headquarters won’t treat you well.”
“I understand. Thanks.” Angele smiled but he did not argue with Shiva. It seemed that Shiva hated the headquarter for some reason and the trip was indeed dangerous.
“You won’t be traveling there using flying mounts. They use hot air balloons. There’ll be three balloons if there are enough members in the team. Don’t pick the same balloon as Reyline. He has a short temper and he won’t help you if you’re in danger. I know him when he was still at the school. He’s young but he’s already ruling his family’s hunting team. If you already made the decision, I have some advice for you. Be selfish and be careful. The ones you help may not pay you back when you’re attacked. Don’t die, Green. My grandchildren still want to play with you.”
“I’ll try to survive the trip. Don’t worry.” Angele chuckled. “Alright, thanks for the help.”
