The two knew that it was the best choice they had but none of them were willing to attack first.
Red Beard was one of the strongest Crystal stage wizards and if he still had enough mentality to cast a level 2 spell, none of the three would be able to take it without dying.
Even Olive was not so confident with his force barrier.
Their original plan was to chase Red Beard down and force him to waste mentality on defensive spells.
“It’s a great suggestion. You had some personal matters with Red Beard, right? Why don’t you go beat him up?” The woman chuckled.
“Well, I’ll pass. I want him dead but it’s fine if you want to do the job for me.” Angele coughed and stepped back.
Olive and the woman shook their heads. They did not think Angele was treating the situation seriously.
The three remained silent as they surrounded Red Beard.
After several minutes, Angele heard footsteps coming from behind.
“Right there! Hurry up! I’ll take out that old bastard myself!” It sounded like an old man.
“More people are coming. Why are we still waiting? There’s no time for us to hesitate.” Angele was trying to stir things up.
Olive glared at Angele as his brow furrowed but he did not say anything.
Red Beard supported himself using the tree. His face was pale and his condition was getting worse.
Three old men wearing black robes jumped out of the bush. The old man in front walked straight toward Red Beard and threw a white ball toward him.
“You shall pay for what you have done!”
The two old men rushed toward Red Beard as well. A blue glow surrounded the man on the left and two dark fireballs appeared on the palms of the man on the right.
The three old men jumped onto Red Beard before Angele could do anything.
Olive and the woman stepped back right away.
The white ball turned into a huge web that surrounded Red Beard and the trees around him. A blue spider appeared from nowhere and it jumped onto Red Beard with two dark fireballs behind it.
Red Beard’s expression changed. He raised both of his arms and conjured a golden plate in front of him.
The plate was covered in complicated runes.
Angele, Olive, and the woman just watched the attack from the side.
The three old wizards kept releasing white spider webs which stopped Red Beard from escaping. The flames from the fireballs were burning everything under the web while the blue spider moving toward Red Beard.
However, the golden plate in front of Red Beard blocked most of the attack.
Angele smiled as he watched the three old men keep casting spells.
“Masters, you’re doing this wrong. The golden plate is absorbing the fire energy from the dark flames. It uses the energy to defend against the blue spiders. He has barely used any mentality. My suggestion is to break the golden plate first,” he yelled.
A black fireball flew toward him.
Angele’s expression changed and he took several steps backed and dodged the attack.
“It’s just a suggestion. Why are you mad?”
“Shut up!” One of them turned around and glared at Angele.
“Alright, alright…” Angele shrugged. “It’s just my honest opinion.”
The black flames extinguished after several seconds. The smell of dead body permeated the air. Angele inhaled some of the polluted air that made his head dizzy.
He stepped back again to avoid the polluted area. The remaining flames around were still sparking.
“You don’t want the magic device anymore?” Red Beard’s voice came from under the white webs.
Olive pursed his lips and stared at the three dark wizards without saying anything. Those wizards were preparing some magic circles. The muscular woman behind him was observing the situation on the battlefield.
There was a gentle smile on Angele’s face. He focused on the golden plate created by Red Beard.
Suddenly, rays of golden light were released from the center of the plate. All the white webs, blue spiders, and dark flames were cleansed by the light.
Angele’s sight was blinded for a second. He could feel the searing heat on his skin. He leaped to the left and stayed away from the golden light immediately.
“The Golden Amulet,” Olive shouted in surprise.
He raised his hand and pointed at Red Beard.
A distorted energy wave exploded.
Blood spurted out of the three dark wizards’ bodies. They were severely injured.
The distorted energy wave was preventing the golden light from spreading.
A high-pitched noise echoed in the area as the two spells conflicted.
The golden light suddenly faded.
“Ha…You want the magic device, right? Go for it!” Red Beard laughed.
He raised his arm and a white object was thrown into the forest at full speed.
“Hurry!” Olive bit his lips and rushed toward the white object. The three dark wizards struggled and stood up, then they started running toward the object as well.
It only took several seconds for them to reach the object.
“The Light of Thorns!” Red Beard sneered and shouted.
A golden light energy wave exploded around the white object.
The light brightened up the whole area. Countless rays of golden light penetrated the white mist and illuminated on the ground.
Angele held the sword in his hand and watched the energy wave explode. The three dark wizards were burnt into ashes within a second. It almost looked like they perished in an invisible flame.
The strong woman failed to dodge the attack as well. She created a light blue barrier in the front but the golden light went through the barrier and hit her body directly. Angele watched her fall to the ground and white smoke rose from her body.
Only Olive survived the attack. The distorted energy barrier around his body blocked all the golden light.
He walked out of the bush slowly with a white chest armor in hand and he looked disappointed.
Red Beard stood beside the tree and sneered.
“What do you think? You now have the Light of Thorns. Although I used up all the stored energy in the armor, it’s still a great magic device. Isn’t this what you’re looking for?”
A golden magic circle appeared below his feet and the runes on the circle started slowly spinning.
“Master Olive! He’s trying to escape!” Angele yelled from the side.
Olive dropped the ‘magic device’ to the ground. “Give me the real one, you bastard!” He was enraged. “And you!” He turned around and pointed at Angele. “One more word and I’ll kill you!”
With a flick of his finger, the magic circle under Red Beard’s feet was destroyed.
“Ha, calm down.” Angele shook his head and stopped talking.
After several minutes, the muscular woman slowly stood up and her damaged body parts started to recover at an unbelievable speed.
The three old dark wizards recreated their body from a dark fog.
However, all of them looked much weaker than before.
They surrounded Red Beard again.
Red Beard raised his right hand and there was a white rune ring on the middle finger.
“This is the real Light of Thorns. I no longer want it.” He smiled as he cut off his middle finger and threw it into the air.
The ring and the finger drew a silver arc in the air.
The wizards all stared at the dropping ring.
“This is the real one. The energy wave around it is incredible.” Olive eyed the strong woman and they went for the ring at the same time.
The three dark wizards also rushed to the ring.
Red Beard caught this chance to transform his body into a ray of golden light and vanish into the forest on the right. Angele followed after him right away.
Angele held the silver sword tight in hand. Red Beard’s body returned to its original shape but he was still surrounded by a golden glow.
The chilling wind was blowing over Angele’s face. The gap between the two was continuously shortening.
He suddenly slashed forward and the length of the blade increased.
The tip of the sword hit the back of Red Beard.
The old man grunted and some blood spurted out of his long robe. He quickly stopped and raised his right hand.
A golden shield appeared in front of him.
Red Beard then quickly took out a triangular wooden amulet and threw it to the ground.
Something exploded behind Angele. He turned his head around and saw a humongous Golem that was created using the dark mud here. The Golem was about two meters tall. It held its fists tight and there was a golden flame burning on its head.
The Golem wasted no time as it struck Angele with its right fist.
Red Beard’s face turned pale. He struggled for a while and took a deep breath. It seemed like creating the Golem cost him a lot of mentality and mana. He turned around and started running again.
Angele leaped to the right and dodged the Golem’s strike. The fist left a one-meter-deep hole in the ground.
He quickly turned around and stabbed the Golem in the arm. Angele went around the golden shield and started chasing after the old man again.
The Golem stopped moving after being hit by the sword. It was being petrified for some reason. It then turned into a gray stone statue after several seconds.
Finally, Angele caught the old man beside a small lake.
“Do you remember me? Red Beard?” Angele smiled and stared at Red Beard. The old man was lying on the ground.
“Who’re you? I have too many enemies.” Red Beard pursed his lips. “I have known that this day will come. I knew it from the beginning…Just kill me. That magic device was the last valuable thing I had.”
“However, why didn’t you go for the magic device? I’m impressed,” he added.
“The reason is simple. I need to kill you first.” Angele walked to the old man slowly.
“The magic device is right there. They’re already fighting for it. Someone else will take it before you can finish me off,” Red Beard, who had lost his calm, said quickly.
“Don’t worry. I have plenty of time. I can kill you first and go back for that.” Angele shook his head.
