The energy particles sank into the amulet and created a translucent light cylinder, connecting the main mast and the railings.
“Reenslanvarea!” Hikari invoked the incantation. She made a strange hand gesture and countless green energy particles gather in front of her chest, creating a large green light ball.
She pushed the green light ball to the main mast.
A green light cylinder emerged out of the ball and connected to the amulet in Angele’s hand.
Two more light cylinders connected to the amulet, one was black and the other was blue.
Reyline and Stigma were standing by the entrance of the cabin. They noticed the situation as well.
Reyline was gathering the blue lightning pulses around his hands and Stigma was releasing a ray of light that was formed by some black energy particles.
The green, blue, and black light cylinders connected to the amulet in Angele’s hand. They looked like three glowing chains.
The red and green energy particles around the amulet started spinning, then it moved to the center of the amulet and created a tiny vortex.
The amulet turned all the energy particles into a white light cylinder and transferred the power to the matrices in the airships.
Between the thick gray clouds.
The three airships were advancing slowly. A thin layer of white barrier appeared around them as the Wind energy particles started accelerating their speed.
The storm spirits had revealed their true forms and they were riding on storm clouds. They were chasing after the airships with various types of weapons in hands.
A Four-wing Night Sparrow was flying through the thick clouds, heading toward the storm spirits behind the airships.
A muscular male storm spirit had a long blue spear in hand. The man had a black earring on his left ear and he flew by the night sparrow at full speed.
“Ha!” The storm spirit roared, and the distorted sound wave was visible around his mouth.
The night sparrow was hit by the sound wave and it almost lost its balance.
Countless storm spirits flew passed the night sparrow, drawing countless blue arcs in the sky. They were still going after the accelerating airships.
“WOO~WOO!” A storm spirit with a scar on his forehead shouted in a high-pitched voice.
The night sparrow flew around the clouds and glanced at the three airships.
The clouds under the storm spirits’ feet left trails of lightning pulses in the air and those lightning pulses were moving to the airships as well.
The night sparrow swung its wings, then it turned around and started returning to the airship.
A storm spirit beside the bird lowered his body and hit it with a trident.
The bald man sneered and raised his trident into the air. The dead night sparrow was skewered on top of the three-pronged spear and its blood was dripping down the handle of the weapon.
“WOO!” The storm spirit shouted. “For Azus!” His voice sounded like a lion roaring.
“For Azus! For Azus! For Azus!” All the storm spirits around him started to yell madly.
The dead night sparrow was burnt into ashes by the lightning pulses and it disappeared into the air.
Angele suddenly opened his eyes. The terrifying look of the bald storm spirit left a deep impression on his mind.
The airships finally passed through the thick clouds and left the storm area, entering a blue sky over a green plain.
Countless storm spirits stopped by the edge of the thick clouds, watching the airships leave.
The bald man with a trident in hand was standing in the front all the storm spirits. The man had a pair of sharp eyes above his aquiline nose. Angele could see the craziness in his eyes.
He glared at the leaving airships and raised his right hand.
Suddenly, the airships visualized in front of the man’s eyes and he slowly moved his hand toward the illusion of the airships.
An enormous blue hand appeared from the thick clouds and it was moving toward the three airships in the front.
The airships looked like three black tiny ants compared to the translucent hand.
The hand suddenly slapped down.
The two airships behind were crushed into pieces by the hand. The airship in the front had barely dodged the attack but part of the railings was still damaged. Black wooden pieces scattered in the air as the airship escaped.
On the last airship.
Angele slowly lowered the amulet. The surface of the item was covered with tiny cracks.
He turned his around and checked the situation.
Angele could still feel that the bald man’s cold sight falling upon him. He visualized the scene that the man was backed up by countless storm spirits.
“Ah…” Angele closed his eyes quickly and tears were dripping down his chin.
“Finally, we made it out!” Stigma walked to Angele with the help from Reyline. Morrisa and Hikari followed after them. Angele glanced around, and he knew that the crew was still trying to figure out what had just happened.
The bald storm spirit was at a different level. The rank 1 wizards on the airship just could not understand how the storm spirit reached out to the airships. Angele was certain that if the slap hit the airship they were on, they would all be dead.
“Stigma, why didn’t you tell us about this? That was a huge number of storm spirits. How did you survive the trip to the west coast?” Hikari took a deep breath and looked at Stigma.
“I don’t know…” Stigma shook his head. “I didn’t encounter that many storm spirits on that trip…This area is controlled by the elemental lord Al’akir. He’s a kind storm giant and he will never ask his army to attack the airships. The ones we fought on deck were rogues.” Stigma bit his lips as he recalled the terrifying scene.
“Angele, how are your eyes? Your bird enraged him, I think.” Hikari turned to Angele.
“I’m fine.” Angele opened his eyes and nodded. He opened his hand and showed the crew the broken amulet. “The amulet is finished.”
The amulet perished in the air and turned into white smoke. The white smoke rose from Angele’s palm and disappeared into the air.
“Well, we need to find a place to land then.” Stigma shook his head. “Good thing is that we survived the Eye of the Storm, but we need to travel across one more dangerous area without the airship until we reach the residential areas for the wizards…”
“Which area?” Angele wondered and looked at Stigma.
“The Abyss Canyon, but don’t worry, my family has a guard post here. Just a heads-up, the place is filled with scumbags from other races. Robbers, murderers, assassins, and thieves are everywhere. Prepare to fight and don’t let your guard down. My sister once told me, ‘Trust no one in the canyon.’”
“I thought you said the place isn’t populated?” Reyline asked in a light tone.
“Well, it’s not populated by human beings. The place is a mess and it’s extremely dangerous. I’ve never entered the canyon myself either.” Stigma nodded.
“We just survived all the challenges, so I have nothing to fear.” Hikari chuckled.
“Actually, the Abyss Canyon is great for us. Remember the thing Reyline said? There might be assassins waiting for us at the original destination.” Angele lowered his voice.
“You’re right. Let’s enter the canyon and disguise ourselves. It’s probably our best choice right now.” Stigma pursed his lips.
“Prepare to land then, let’s cool down the envelopes,” Angele ordered.
In the endless blue sky, there was a gray airship slowly landing on the green plain.
There were many dead trees on the plains and several gray creatures that looked like groundhogs were jumping around them. They were looking at the dropping black airship curiously.
The green grasses covered the yellow mud on the plain.
There was a humongous green tree that looked like an umbrella standing in the center of the plain quietly.
The black airship landed on an empty ground in front of the tree slowly.
Yellow dust and mud were blown into the air as the airship hit the ground
It was noon. The sunlight was flaming hot. The dust dropped onto the land after several minutes and the sky became clear again.
Many tiny yellow dots appeared on the horizon. Those strange-looking creatures heard the noise and wanted to check the situation.
Under the large tree, a group of tiny white things climbed up the branches.
They flew through the gaps between the leaves, exposing themselves to the eye-blinding sunlight.
It was a group of human-shaped origami with wings on their back. They also had long paper pigtails over their heads.
There was nothing on the origami girl’s face. The long white robes on their bodies were made from paper as well. They looked simple but elegant.
Most of the origami girls were hiding under the tree leaves and looking at the enormous airship in the front.
The origami girls were flying but they did not make any noise. They just stared at the black airship in the shadows under the tree. The scene was quite strange.
