The crystal hexagram slowly rotated in the air, releasing rays of green lights.
Clouds covered the sky and so it was dark.
The blue light and green light illuminated the deck of the two airships.
Reyline’s arrow was created by electric pulses and he was aiming at Angele.
The crystal hexagram started cracking after several seconds and it turned into the green sand.
The sand was blown away by the chilling wind and several green strings were revolving around Angele’s body.
“It seems like you’re the winner of that airship.” Reyline’s voice came from the other side. His long blonde hair was flying about in the air.
“Ha, you saw the crystal rune in my hand, right?”
“It’s all about the amulet now,” Reyline released the bowstring as he spoke.
The electric arrow left a blue trail in the air and flew to Angele.
The arrow was blocked by a silver metal shield and it exploded in the air, turning into blue electric pulses.
Angele charged toward the electric pulses at full speed.
On the deck, a black shadow rushed toward Reyline.
The gap between the two airships was small. The black shadow failed to stop, and it ran into Reyline.
The two rolled several times on the surface of the deck but no one was releasing any energy waves.
“That’s repulsion effect! Your Talent Skill is actually the repulsive force field! How’s that even possible!?” Angele was surprised. He held the silver longsword tight and slashed forward.
Reyline blocked the strike using the longbow.
The spiral rune in his right eye was spinning faster and faster.
“Close combat, huh? Let’s see who’s better.” He bent the longbow in half and it turned into two scimitars that were connected by a chain. There electric pulses sparking along the surface of the silver blades.
Angele drew the cursed scimitar after Reyline blocked the attack.
The electric pulses climbed up Angele’s arm as Reyline fought back with his scimitars.
Angele wanted to slash forward again but his arms numbed for a second.
Reyline’s was going for Angele’s chest.
Angele stepped back quickly but his robe was cut open.
The repulsive force field was a passive Talent Skill and it could disable other wizards’ force fields temporarily.
That was the reason why Angele did not use his Metal Mastery.
He had no idea how long the impact would last but he was confident in his close combat skills.
However, without the metal force field, Angele had trouble defending against the electric pulses coming from Reyline’s dual scimitars. His body was still covered by the metal shield but without the force field, the metal’s real weight was just slowing him down. The only thing keeping Angele in the fight was the attribute buff from the cursed scimitar.
Reyline charged toward him again and slashed forward. Angele leaped away quickly and barely dodged the attack.
Reyline’s close combat skill was strong. He had the strength, agility, and techniques. However, the outcome of a battle was not only decided by those things.
Angele slashed forward with the cursed scimitar randomly as he stepped back. He sneakily activated the illusion signet on his left palm.
Reyline grunted. He thought he had hit Angele in the face, but it was just a blurred illusion. The left side of his waist was cut open and blood spurted out of the wound.
“What the hell!” He applied more electric pulses to both scimitars and slashed forward ferociously.
It was an illusion again. The blade had only hit the deck.
Reyline just realized that Angele was about half a meter away from him. He was not sure what had just happened.
Angele left another wound on his waist.
“Impressive!” Angele praised, “Your body is hard like a two-headed rhino.”
He held the scimitar in right hand and created another silver longsword in left hand.
“What do you say? Just give me the crystal rune. I could’ve killed you with my sword.” He stood by the railings and stared at Reyline.
“Illusions, huh?” There was a serious expression on his face. Majority of illusion spells were weak as wizards needed to channel it without moving but it seemed like the man in front of him could cast the spell anytime he wanted to.
Reyline knew that he was in trouble if he could not figure out a way to break the illusions.
He thought that Angele was a close-combat wizard that only practiced illusion spells. If he could find Angele’s weak point, he would win the battle within seconds.
“You have the close-combat skills of a Grand Knight, but I have these illusions to support me. You’ll lose once your repulsive force field is deactivated.” Angele pursed his lips to a sneer.
“You’re right. If you’re a better close-combat wizard than me, I’ll lose the fight for sure.” Reyline straightened his back. “Actually, I’ll just give you the crystal rune if you can handle my next skill.”
He raised his left hand and took down a golden headband.
Reyline’s long blonde hair looked like a blooming flower without the headband. The fragrance of flower permeated the air and it was not affected by the strong wind.
Angele’s brow furrowed. A black rune flashed in his eyes, and he charged toward Reyline. He tightly held both the silver sword and scimitar in his hands.
Reyline blocked the strike with his dual scimitars. Fire sparks were created as the weapons clashed with each other. They traded hits so fast that they looked like two blurred shadows.
However, Angele’s strength was much higher than Reyline and the only thing Reyline could do was to slowly move back.
Suddenly, Reyline’s feet numbed for a second. He felt dizzy and uncomfortable.
The energy wave from the signet finally worked. Angele seized this opportunity as he stepped forward and jumped onto Reyline.
He forcefully kicked the man in the waist.
Reyline was blown away by the impact. He lay on the floor and spat out some blood. He tried to support himself with the scimitars, but he did not have enough strength left.
It was just a competition and Angele had no intention to kill him. Reyline sighed and shook his head.
“You won.” He raised his hand and threw the crystal rune to Angele.
Angele nodded as he caught the crystal rune.
“How did you manage to get such a strong body? We can do a trade if you don’t mind.”
He stared at Reyline. The man’s feet were petrified for just one second. Only people with extremely high Stamina would be able to recover from the petrification so fast.
Angele wanted to buy Reyline’s secret technique, so he could easily fight against ranged spells.
Olive was a Crystal stage wizard, but half of his body was petrified, and he had to use energy particles to heal himself. Reyline recovered from the petrification just because he had high Stamina, which made Angele curious about how he trained himself or if he had used some special enchanted items.
“Sorry, it’s my family’s secret so I can’t just sell it to you.” Reyline recovered from the injury quickly. He stood up and the spiral rune disappeared from his eyes. Furthermore, the repulsive force field was no longer influencing Angele’s force field.
“It’s fine.” Angele shrugged. “Alright, I need to get the last crystal rune now.”
“You’ll be facing captain Hikari. She’s not a strong wizard but she knows many dirty tricks.” Reyline did not seem concerned about losing the fight. It seemed that the rumor about him was wrong.
“I heard you’re short-tempered, but you seem like a nice guy to me.” Angele smiled.
“Well, you’re stronger than me. I don’t want to get myself killed,” Reyline responded in a light tone. “I’ll go have some rest, good luck.” It seemed that the secret skill cost him a lot of mentality.
Angele watched him walk down the staircases. He noticed that there were no fainted wizards on this airship and there were only some bloodstains on the railings. There was a great fight here but Reyline definitely had the advantage due to his repulsive force field. The airship was small and most of the wizards would rely on their barriers created by the force shields. He probably won the battle without a sweat.
Angele heard something exploding and people roaring when the battle started but it only lasted for several minutes.
He wiped the dust off his robe and walked to the main mast.
The airships were traveling in a line and this was the second airship. There was one more airship ahead of them.
It seemed that the fight had not yet finished on the first airship. He could still see spells being cast and things exploding.
Angele checked his condition quickly. He had used about a third of his mana, but the wind buff spell he stored in the chip was used when the fight against Reyline started. The buff would last for about 20 minutes. He was confident that he could finish the battle within the time limit.
He checked the green strings surrounding his body. The light they were releasing had already started fading away.
Angele walked to the stern and checked the situation.
Nine wizards were attacking the captain named Hikari together.
They surrounded the lady using a random formation.
It seemed like the wizards on the airship were treating the battle way too serious. They were casting high-damage spells and activating enchanted items.
Angele’s expression turned serious.
He knew it was just a competition, so he had no intention to kill anyone. Reyline also stopped attacking after Angele defeated him. There were many dangerous creatures that needed to be dealt with on the trip. The wizards must work together for their future. There was no point on wasting too much mentality and mana in a competition.
However, the situation on the first airship was getting worse by the second.
Hikari defended against the attack from nine wizards and all the wizards were using their strongest spells. Angele even saw an acid energy ball that could deal more than 40 degrees of damage. There was also a snake-shaped flame ray and a white owl that was trying to catch Hikari off guard from behind.
