‘How did you manage to keep all the advanced meditation techniques in the central continent?’
‘There were people selling the weaker advanced meditation techniques to others. They somehow managed to avoid having to sign the contract but the number can be ignored. Only the strongest and richest wizards in other areas might have access to those techniques. Also, not all the wizards could understand the techniques. Otherwise, there should have been more high-rank wizards on this land than it is now.’
‘Why is it so hard then? I succeeded on my first try.’ Angele wondered.
‘No one knows. Wizards have spent years studying the fundamentals of the advanced meditation techniques but there was hardly any valid result. The advanced meditation techniques were inherited from the ancient wizards who found these techniques in other realms,’ Henn explained.
‘Other realms? Do you know about the Nightmare Realm? Don’t tell me wizards in the central continent have already found the method of activating world stones…’ Angele was surprised.
‘The Nightmare Realm is just one of the realms. I don’t know if there are wizards in the central continent that can enter other realms, but they do know how to use world stones to communicate with the species that live in certain realms. The intelligent species in other realms are all strong and mysterious. The Nightmare Realm is relatively safe when compared to the other realms, but legends say the creatures there will consume your soul. Those creatures are the masters of strong curses. The curse will kill a wizard’s whole family if not lifted in time,’ Henn continued.
‘There are also the Void Realm and Chaos Realm. Don’t even test your luck in those realms. Only those dark wizards who have lost their life’s purpose would give them a try.’
Angele listened to Henn’s words quietly, inwardly relieved that he did not stay in the Nightmare Realm for too long.
‘Anyways, it’s too early to talk about this with you. I’ll tell you more about the other realms when the time is right.’ Henn decided to end the topic here.
‘Master Henn, I have just advanced to the Crystal stage. I’m wondering if you can give some Fire category level 2 spells?’ Angele went straight to the point.
‘Ha, kid, do you remember what the basics of the wizard world are? We need to trade if you want anything from me.’ Henn chuckled.
‘I understand…What do you want me to do this time?’ Angele shrugged. Henn’s words were well within his expectations. She would not help Angele for no reason.
‘Find me the female wizard called Vivian Fenrir. She should still be a member of the Elemental Hand if I’m not mistaken. Go find her and I’ll give you the spell models you want.’
‘Alright. I will look for her right after I reach the organization’s territory, but it will take some time…Can’t you just give me the level 2 spells first?’ Angele pursed his lips. ‘I just realized that I can ask for the models after I get there.’
‘You’re an elite member of Dark Wizard Tower and a talented potion master. I think they’ll give you access to the normal level 2 spell models. However, I have the modified ones and the damage they can deal is doubled. That’s your decision to make.’ Henn sneered.
‘You’re telling me that the Elemental Hand and Dark Wizard Tower don’t have the modified version of the spell models?’ Angele asked.
‘They do but the cost is different. You need to sign a contract and leave a small part of your soul to the organization,’ Henn explained slowly.
Angele narrowed his eyes and responded after thinking for several seconds.
‘Alright, you win.’
‘Wait till your mentality is stabilized again. You first need to learn more about this city,’ Henn suggested.
‘You’re correct.’ Angele nodded slightly.
Five days later.
It was a sunny day.
The thin clouds floated in the endless blue sky. The golden sunlight was eye-blinding as it illuminated on the surface of the ground.
On the left side of the black iron tower, there was a busy street that was filled with numerous restaurant establishments.
The street was crowded. The locals were wearing short leather skirts and sleeveless leather chest armors. Sweat was dripping down their chins as they haggled with the vendors.
Their colorful leather outfits were shining in the sunlight.
There were several cafés on the street. Most of them had white store signs, and their customers were young.
Inside one of the cafés, there was a man short black hair sitting beside a table. He was wearing a long white robe. On the contrary, the other three chairs were empty.
The man was sipping a flower infused coffee from a small cup. His face was pale and there was a cold expression on his face. The black dagger that was tied to his belt was eye-catching.
The man quietly sat there alone peeking outside through the window on the left.
Most of the young customers only stayed in the shop for less than five minutes and some were waiting for their friends to come.
Several customers had come and left but the black-haired man just waited beside the window patiently while looking at the people passing by.
The owner and waiters in the shop were guessing who this man was waiting for.
Several hours passed. The golden sunlight had already turned orange which illuminated on the man’s table.
The color of the coffee in the cup deepened.
The glass door of the shop was pushed open again.
“It’s my turn to pay today, just tell me what you want!” A girl with short yellow hair entered the shop. There were two other young girls following from behind.
The three entered the shop as they chatted and a tall man in a gray robe stepped into the door as well, his face covered by the hood.
The man went straight to the table beside the window.
He pulled the white chair out for himself and slowly sat down.
“You’re early.” The man put down his hood, revealing the confident smile on his face.
The man had long brown hair and his face was average-looking. His eyes were surrounded by a golden glow and there was a mysterious aura around him.
“Green, you’re late.” The man with black hair sipped some more coffee from the cup and calmly spoke.
“I arrived on time. So Stigma, how’s your family?’ Angele ordered a cup of fruit coffee and looked at Stigma.
“Not bad. No one knows that I already became a formal wizard. They think I’m still a rank 3 wizard apprentice.” Stigma shook his head slightly. “My young sister is already a formal wizard and she will advance to the Gas stage soon. For some reason, however, my family did not provide too many resources to her while I was away.”
“So everything is going as you planned?”
“It’s for my own safety.” Stigma had a blank expression on his face. “People fear the things that they’re unfamiliar with. My sister did everything for me after I returned to the family, and my best friend, she cried as we finally met each other again. This is the life I want…Sometimes I’m just wondering if I should never tell them about the truth.”
“Enjoy it while you can. The master won’t let you do that.” Angele looked at Stigma and scanned him using Zero.
“You’re very close to the Crystal stage right now. Congratulations.” He narrowed his eyes.
“There’s bound to be side effects.” Stigma bit his lips and finished the coffee.
The door was opened again.
A man and a woman stepped into the shop, both wearing white outfits.
The man had smooth blonde hair and his face was handsome. The woman was confident and elegant, she was wearing a long black ponytail.
They glanced around and found the two beside the window.
“Here they come.” Stigma stood up and smiled. “Everyone is here now.”
“I wanted to talk to you guys before I leave, then I suddenly received Stigma’s message, ha,” Hikari spoke first.
The handsome blonde man was Reyline.
The four wizards sat down by the table.
Hikari looked at Angele and smiled. “Green, you probably don’t know yet but Reyline has already joined the Wizards’ Society and has been promoted by the leader due to his talent.”
“The Wizards’ Society? I have heard that they would only recruit the strongest and the most talented wizards.” Angele was a bit surprised. The Wizards’ Society was at the same level as the Dark Wizard Tower.
“It’s not as good as the rumors say but it does have some unique features.” Reyline shook his head.
“The Wizards’ Society is definitely a good choice in the central continent. If they send you to their headquarters, you might become a leader of a division. You have a bright future ahead.” Stigma sounded surprised. “Hikari, which organization did you join?”
Hikari chuckled. “I joined the Institute of Potion Masters. The situation is complicated right now. I might get relocated to the Molten River area soon. I have just advanced to the Crystal stage several days ago and still need some time to stabilize my mentality. I’m now a lead developer for a special potion and my friends are still waiting for me on the street right now.”
“Glad to see you all doing well. The Institute of Potion Masters is weaker than the Wizards’ Society, but I have heard that only the elites would be sent to the Molten River area. I think you’re hiding something from us, Hikari.” Stigma smiled.
“Come on.” Hikari shook her head. “Well, I made a huge mistake back in the Six Ring High Tower because I spent too much time on my research. I won’t let that happen again.”
