Chapter 251: Leaving (2)
Translator: Leo Editor: Frappe
The woman created ice shields to block the incoming silver sword, but she did not notice the twisted black rune on the blade.
The ice shield got petrified and turned into stone. The sword penetrated the stone easily and it went for the woman’s neck.
The woman’s expression changed. A blue rune flashed between her brow and blue flames appeared around her eyes.
She opened her mouth and was about to invoke the incantation, but Angele threw a tiny fireball toward her.
The incantation almost made it out of her mouth.
However, it was just one second late.
The fireball exploded.
The woman was blown away by the impact and her body sank into a large tree behind her. She fainted as her body was being petrified, starting from the neck.
Angele lowered his hand as the red glow disappeared. The cursed scimitar and the silver sword floated around his body. Countless metal strings were fighting against Olive’s distorted forcefield.
Several seconds later, the metal strings were now coated with a green glow. They looked like tiny snakes flying around.
‘The wind buff is great. After modification, it can increase my speed by 40%, including the metals under my control.
It took a lot of mana and mentality to cast all the spells, but Angele did not mind doing so.
Suddenly, all the silver metal strings and needles were crushed.
He grasped the scimitar with his right and the sword with his left, leaping to the side afterward.
A distorted energy ball went past his body and exploded about ten meters behind. The translucent energy waves were released from the center of the explosion and several large trees fell to the ground.
He quickly looked to the other side. Olive’s body was surrounded by the translucent shield and there were silver flames burning in his eyes. The old man looked like a devil from the hell, who then raised his hands in the air, and it seemed like he was starting a ritual.
Olive suddenly lowered his head and stared at Angele.
Angele narrowed his eyes. It felt as though he was trapped inside a large glass ball. The invisible energy waves were about to tear him apart with the ball, but he quickly raised both of his weapons and tried to block the waves.
Countless metal strings were unleashed out of his body and created a huge silver shield in the front.
The noise sounded like glass being shattered with force.
Angele’s body trembled as he was hit by the energy waves from all angles. The metal shield in the front only lasted for a second. The scimitar and the sword were pushed away like nothing.
His face turned pale and a twisted black rune flashed in his eyes. Angele was pushed back by the remaining force and he finally stopped after hitting a tree. Two deep holes made by his feet were left on the ground.
Olive sneered, and his burning eyes ferociously glared at Angele again. A huge amount of distorted energy waves surrounded him, and they were getting closer to Angele.
Angele had no mentality left.
His body was empty, and he felt dizzy, but he remained calm. There was still one thing he could rely on.
The evolved illusion signet could trap people in a nightmare. He had never fully activated the signet after its evolution, but he was certain that the effects would be incredible.
Angele assumed that the signet was somewhat related to the Nightmare Realm, as it was capable of turning illusions into reality.
This was the reason why he remained calm although he could no longer cast any spells.
The temperature around Angele increased as the energy waves approached. He knew that Olive needed to channel the spell and if he could fully activate the signet, the energy waves would stop. In reality, he still had another method to save himself in case of emergencies.
However, he was still waiting for the right time.
Angele raised his left hand. A black shadow started swinging its wings on the center of his palm. Several blurry shadows appeared around the wings. They looked like translucent birds mixed with some flies.
The rotated around the signet slowly.
The energy wave stopped right before hitting Angele’s body.
A gentle smile appeared on his face as he looked at Olive.
“It’s over. Master Olive.” He lowered his left hand and deactivated the signet.
Angele turned around and saw the blonde man by a large tree with a black longbow in his hand waiting for him.
“I was going to help you.” He lowered the black bow.
“You helped once already. The magic device is just a bonus of the mission. I can handle it myself.” Angele smiled.
The two slowly vanished into the deep forest.
Olive stared at the back of the two. His upper body was still burning in silver flames, but his lower body had already been petrified and now had the texture of a stone statue.
The silver flames were slowly helping him recover but the speed was slow. He had used most of his energy to stop the petrification from spreading.
That was why Olive had stopped attacking. He would not have enough energy particles to stop the petrification if he did not stop controlling the translucent energy waves. The old man did not want to take the risk. Moreover, he was not sure what Angele did to him.
The old dark wizard had disappeared a while ago. He escaped the fight by turning his body into black smoke. The only thing left on the ground was a long black robe.
The golden sunlight penetrated the thick cloud in the air.
On a high platform of Six Ring area in Nola, a brown wooden house sat silently in the middle of the grasses.
The gentle wind was making the vivid greenery dance.
Three black gondolas were located beneath the three enormous envelopes. They floated in the air above the platform.
Three white airstairs made of wood were built on the platform and were used to help people get aboard.
It was crowded around the airstairs. Many strong centaur slaves and muscular men were carrying the baggage of the wizards to the boat. There were also many cargos that were filled with magic stones waiting to be transported.
The overseer kept yelling at the slaves in an attempt to make them move faster.
Some light wizards were climbing up the airstairs slowly.
Some wizards were still saying goodbye to their friends and family members on the ground.
The entire platform was covered with people.
Angele was wearing a white robe with a white belt. He was chatting with Shiva, Sherry, and Glue. Nancy was patiently waiting behind him.
“Please take care of Nancy for me if possible. She’ll be my representative in Nola.”
Angele grabbed Nancy’s hand. They finally had sex last night and Angele had told her about his future plans.
But they were not real lovers. Their relationship was only based on reciprocity. Angele provided her a shelter while she wanted a strong master. Nancy was not really downcast about Angele’s departure after hearing his explanation.
“Not a problem. I’ll take care of her.” Shiva nodded.
Glue looked at Angele. “We met each other not so long ago, but I believe you will survive the trip.”
“Thanks. I’ll try my best.” Angele smiled.
Sherry handed over a brown notebook to him. The notebook had a leather cover and the edges were painted with rose patterns.
“It’s a map I acquired from my family. I hope it will help you on the way there.” Sherry came back from the border just to say goodbye.
“Much appreciated.” Angele grabbed the notebook.
The three talked about the world stone for a while to lighten up the mood a bit.
Suddenly, the crowd got noisy.
“It’s the three team captains.” Shiva lowered his voice.
Angele turned his head around and glanced around.
Two white robes and a red robe walked toward the crowd. Everyone bowed to them as they walked passed.
At the front of the group was a handsome young wizard. His long white robe’s edge was decorated with gold. There was a blank expression on his face.
There were two wizards behind him. The one on the right was a middle-aged woman wearing a white robe. Her long black hair trailed over her shoulders. There was a strange swelling on her right arm, but it was covered by the sleeve.
The other one was a man wearing a red robe. There were two white scimitars embroidered on his chest. The man had a long face with two long sharp ears, making him somehow look like an elf. However, unlike the pretty elves, his skin was rough, and his face was average.
The three walked to three different wooden airstairs.
“Reyline!” Suddenly, a crispy female voice came from the crowd.
Reyline already had one hand on the handle. He turned around after hearing someone calling his name.
A blonde girl wearing a white one piece. There was a long silver hairpin on her hair. She stared at Reyline as she yelled.
“You’ll come back for me, right? You promised me!” the girl shouted.
Reyline looked at her with his brows furrowed.
“Sorry, but who are you?”
The smile disappeared from the girl’s face. She covered her face with her hands and started crying. The girl then turned around and ran down the platform quickly.
The wizards, slaves, and family members started laughing after watching the scene.
Reyline watched the girl leave, then he sighed and shook his head as he climbed up the ladder.
“He didn’t want the girl to wait for him since he could die on this trip. Maybe my thoughts about him are wrong…” Shiva looked at Reyline and sighed.
“It’s about time. I’ll be boarding the airship too.”
Angele shook his head slightly and walked to the third airship.
“Don’t forget about us!” Shiva yelled from behind.
“I won’t.” Angele waved his right hand.
The three just stood there quietly and watched Angele climb up the airstairs.
Angele stood by the railings after getting on the airship. He overlooked the crowd and put on the hood to cover his face.
He had already organized everything before leaving. Isabel would help him contact master Liliana. It seemed that the White Tooth Castle had no problem doing business with the underground world.
He waited for the wizards to board the boat. The chilling wind was blowing the lower hem of his robe into the air. It was early in the morning and the sunlight was not even warm.
Nola was a nice and peaceful place but for a better future, he chose to leave.
