“Yeah. Majority of wizards dislike noisy places since they require a quiet environment for their research and experimentations.” Vivian nodded while she sent another piece of meat into her mouth.
Suddenly, a red eye appeared beside her body floating in the air.
It was an eye formed out of flames.
Vivian turned to the eye and checked.
“Someone from the council is here. Come with me. I need to introduce you to the elders of the organization.”
“Sure,” Angele immediately answered.
Within minutes, they completely finished having their lunch.
Vivian then raised her hands. All plates and silverwares sank into the table and the leftovers gathered into the air and formed a yellow ball. The ball dropped onto the table after several seconds and soon disappeared.
Together they left the dining hall and passed through the tunnels, ultimately reaching a spacious meeting room.
A male and a female wizard, both wearing long black robes, were standing there silently.
Vivian led Angele to his seat and she similarly sat down right away.
“What brings you here?” she asked the two wizards in a light tone.
Both of the two wizards were wearing strange outfits underneath their robes.
The male wizard was wearing a mysterious white mask which had two red squinting eyes, but no mouth or nose painted on it.
“Master Fenrir.” The man stepped forward. His voice was deep and hoarse. “I am here to inform you that the registration of your son, Angele, has been completed.”
“Master Fenrir.” The other spoke as well. She was wearing an asymmetrical bob. “The council elders wanted me to pass some information to you.”
“Wait here.” Looking at the masked man, Vivian nodded. She then pointed at the female wizard. “Follow me. Angele, you can talk to him if you wish to.”
Angele nodded in affirmation and watched them leave the meeting room.
Right after he heard Vivian and the female wizard leave the hallway.
“Take a seat, please.” Angele pointed at the chair Vivian had just seated on.
“I’m good, thanks,” the masked man politely responded.
“Sure.” Angele was not concerned. “I have a question, which city around the headquarters is under the control of the organization?”
“The closest city to the headquarters is Andie City which is famous for its gemstones and crystals. You should pay it a visit if you are interested,” the masked man immediately answered.
“You should be from the council considering that you are allowed to enter this ruin, right?” Angele asked. He inspected the masked man through his mentality wave and the biochip but failed to determine the exact stage of the man, which meant that the masked man was stronger than him.
“You are correct.”
“Can you tell me more about Elemental Hand?”
The masked man thought for a while, then he started explaining.
“In Elemental Hand, the lord and the council possess the highest authority. They control most of the cities and facilities within the organization’s territory. Your mother, master Fenrir, is the 3rd elder in the council. Although, the situation in the organization is still complicated due to the fight between the lord and the council which lasted for years.”
“So you are here merely to…”
Angele stood up after the man declined his offer to sit down, then they continued chatting for a while.
Introducing himself to Angele, the masked man’s name was Seilin. He only donned a mask due to his face becoming permanently disfigured during an experiment. Exposure to light would make him suffer.
The female wizard was called Pina, who was the captain of master Vivian’s private army.
Blue light dots suddenly flashed on the back of Seilin’s right hand when they had finished their conversation.
“No worries. Go ahead.” Angele, smiling, waved his right hand.
Seilin did not seem to mind Angele’s presence as he did not even modify the frequency of his mentality wave in the slightest.
“You do not mind me eavesdropping?” Angele was slightly taken aback.
“It is fine, not a private matter.” Seilin shook his head. “It should be the talented newbie from my district.”
When he slightly raised his hand, Angele heard a deep voice coming from the communication rune.
“Master Seilin, miss Linda and Omega are both here. Do you wish to see them?” The voice sounded like a girl speaking in a low-pitched tone.
“Omega? They have offended Ray. There is nothing I can do to help them since Ray and I are not friends. They need to figure out a way themselves,” Seilin immediately answered.
“The situation is different now. Omega’s younger sister has been taken captive by Ray. Linda said that she would come here every day if you do not help them.”
“This little kid…he is my daughter’s lover but that does not mean I will wipe his ass for him every time.” Seilin was a bit speechless. “Alright. Send Ray a message and see what he has to say. I barely know him, so I am uncertain if it will work. Also…”
Seilin, shaking his head, gave the newbie several orders through the communication rune.
Angele quietly waited at the side. It seemed that Seilin was the most powerful man in a certain area. He sounded angry at first, yet he immediately calmed down and he even figured out his future actions quickly, and his plans were cost-effective.
Seilin deactivated the communication rune after everything was done.
“Sorry for the wait.”
“It is fine.” Angele shook his head. He already realized that Pina and Seilin were not average wizards. Both of them were part of Elemental Hand’s core members and both possessed a certain scope of authority within the territory.
They started chatting again.
At present, Seilin had long known that Angele was the most important person to Vivian. Although Angele was weak, he still needed to pay respects. Seilin was overall courteous and acted with elegance over the course of their conversation since he wanted to leave a good first impression to Angele.
Angele noticed that Seilin was not overbearing in terms of his behavior; he did not mind becoming a friend to a person who possessed authority and power. There were many things which he wanted to do in Elemental Hand and he did not want to rely on Vivian too much in the future.
Still, being a son of the 3rd elder was convenient, and he wanted to take advantage of this in order to meet more core members of the organization.
Vivian returned to the meeting room while Angele was still conversing with Seilin. The two wizards departed right away upon bidding farewell.
Angele found an excuse to return to his own room.
He locked the door and checked if the room was safe.
The crystal scorpion provided him an ability to block Henn’s invasive mentality wave. When inside his own room, it could additionally help him stay undetected. Vivian had provided him some privacy due to the fact that he had not attempted to enter the restricted areas in the past days.
For safety, Angele decided to meditate in his own room. His Mask of the Black Wing was still stuck at the first stage and he was having troubles progressing. The advanced meditation, albeit slow, was still far better than basic meditation techniques.
If Angele could progress to the next stage, his mentality level would similarly rise as well. His mentality would meet the requirement in the advancement in order to become a rank 2 wizard once he successfully progressed to the second stage of Mask of the Black Wing. This was the advantage of wizards who possessed advanced meditation techniques.
Angele would be alerted by any changes in the mentality wave if anything happened during meditation, but he still needed to ensure the safety of the environment.
He continuously meditated from noon to night. Vivian suddenly left the ruin and left a message to him through the communication rune. She would apparently come back in several days’ time and she asked Angele if he needed anything from the city. Vivian then asked Angele to continue to stay in the ruin but not enter any of the restricted areas.
This was the moment Angele had been waiting for.
He had already mastered the level 2 spell Pyroblast. However, this was not at the top of his priorities; he had a different plan in mind.
Angele was certain that the ruin was related to his ancient bloodline. Therefore, he decided to enter the Nightmare Realm at this place to see what would happen.
He needed to do it without being detected by Vivian and Henn. Vivian had left the ruin, and with the help of the crystal scorpion, he could pick any time of his choosing and enter the Nightmare Realm.
However, if he failed to restore the energy of the bloodline during the trip, this would probably be the last time he would enter the Nightmare Realm.
Angele’s main goal was to either restore the energy of the Great Harpy ancient bloodline or find a different ancient bloodline.
It was late at night.
Angele sat on his bed with his legs crossed and eyes closed.
Pink light was being released from the glowing crystals on the walls and the room was deadly silent.
“Alright. This is my last chance.” Angele inspected the condition of the crystal scorpion, his potions, and his equipment. He had also successfully stored the level 2 spell in the biochip, so he could instantly cast it if necessary.
A level 2 spell would consume half of his mentality. Although he had yet to test the spell, he believed it was stronger than the Light of Thorns of his other magic device. Angele went through the simulation results multiple times, so he was confident.
He took a deep breath in order to calm down.
Black distorted waves were being released from the illusion signet on his left hand.
The black waves slowly filled up the whole room and vanished into the air.
‘I can only explore the realm for half an hour…time is tight.’ Angele read the report from the biochip.
The remaining power of the bloodline could only help him stay in the Nightmare for a short duration.
‘Whatever, half an hour is good enough. Even if I can’t find the bloodline I need here, I can still extract it from harpies. The only problem lies in the evolution of the signet…’ Angele shook his head.
He raised his left hand and pointed forward.
Angele disappeared from his bed, leaving no trace behind.
