The biggest problem lay in the fact that Angele had yet to discover the extent of Henn’s strength in her soul form. He wanted to know what exactly she was capable of doing to his body.
Angele was certain that he needed to first rank up, even if he could find the correct technique.
He put his hand on the signet and left the Nightmare Realm. Once again he could hear the normal insects making noise by the river.
Angele calmed down before he left the wooden house and headed to the mansion.
He peeked inside Liv’s room through the window before entering the building.
The light was turned off but he could see Liv meditating on her bed.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes while he made sure that Liv was not aware of what he did.
The mansion was surrounded by defensive magic matrices and it seemed like they would react to Angele’s movement.
With the help of the mentality compression method and the stealth technique, the defensive matrix would have a hard time detecting him even if he was considered as an invader.
He returned to his bedroom and started drawing red lines on the floor.
The lines were covered by the carpet, so no one would be able to find them without knowing the secret.
Angele spent the next several days constructing the magic circle using the energy particles. Liv had no idea about the situation.
Angele jumped into the pool without making a big splash.
The bright sunlight shone through the water ripples and illuminated on his muscular body.
He was freestyle swimming, showing how he was a good swimmer.
Liv was sitting on a bench by the pool. Her long black hair spread over her shoulders, which looked like strands of silk with the highest quality.
Her clean skin looked soft and smooth. It seemed like that she did not wear anything under the long white one-piece.
She was reading a book with a brown leather cover carefully.
“Numinous…” Liv invoked the incantation and drew a V-shaped rune in the air with her right hand.
The red rune vanished into the air within seconds and the tip of her index finger was burnt black.
With a flicker of her finger, the wound was cured and it almost looked like nothing happened.
Angele climbed up the ladder and left the pool. He was wearing a black short and the water was dripping down his body.
He wiped the water from his brown hair with the left hand.
“You have spent so much time studying this rune, yet you are still having trouble drawing it?” Angele jokingly asked.
A maid handed over a dry blanket to him and he started cleaning his body.
“It’s none of your business.” Liv looked at Angele and noticed that he was staring at her breast. “What? I thought you were not interested in me.”
“Well.” Angele pursed his lips. “I like your style and your hair, but you’re a stronger wizard than me, and that scared me a bit. I’m willing to develop a relationship with you if I’m the stronger one, ha.” He finished cleaning his body and headed to the living room.
He heard carriages moving on the path outside the fences before opening the door.
“Are they delivering resources to us?” Angele looked at the direction of the sound but the view was blocked by the building.
Liv stood up from the bench.
“The resources have been delivered several days ago. It must be merchants. Let’s go check them out. We might find some decent items if we’re lucky.”
Angele put on a long white robe and a pair of black metal boots. He started heading to the main entrance right away.
Liv followed after him. They walked down the hallway and left the mansion together.
A group of yellow carriages was slowly advancing along the path in front of the mansion. There were about ten of them, and Angele could hair the horses neighing.
The carriages were moving slowly and the escorts were wearing gray cloaks. The cloaks covered their full bodies, including their faces. They all carried swords with gray handles on their belts. The handles of the swords were either cracked or broken.
The carriages stopped on an empty ground by the side of the path.
Several chubby women got off the carriages and started feeding the horses. The coachmen began to check if all the carriages were functioning properly.
The escorts were checking the surroundings in small groups. Some of them were sniffing the cigarettes that they carried. It seemed like the smell of the tobacco would make them feel refreshed.
A short old man in a white suit and red cap walked straight to the mansion with several escorts were following after him.
Angele and Liv waited by the entrance of the mansion quietly.
The old man had a polite smile on his face. He stopped by the entrance and bowed to the two wizards right away.
“Master wizards, we’re of the Starmoon Caravan. My name is Freywood. You might be interested in the special goods I have… Also, I’ll buy items you no longer need off your hands at a very reasonable price.”
“So, you have something that wizards need?” Angele was interested.
“I can’t promise you anything, but you can check out the items by yourself.” Freywood smiled.
Angele scanned the old man in front of him using Zero and found that Freywood was a rank 3 wizard apprentice. That was the reason why he knew what wizards were interested at.
“You know that you might be killed by an evil wizard and you’ll lose all your items, right?” he asked.
“I know, but I’ll take the risk that comes with great rewards.” Freywood chuckled and it seemed like he was not concerned about what Angele just said.
“To be honest, my caravan is being protected by a master wizard.”
“Interesting, I didn’t think wizards would do something like this.” Angele narrowed his eyes. “It means you do have something rare. Take me to your carriages, I want to see what you have.”
Freywood nodded and he led the two wizards to the carriages quickly.
They started checking the goods from the cart on the left.
Most of the goods were spell materials and random eggs from different creatures. There were also gems and luxurious-looking wands, which usually were used to make special crystal orbs.
Angele collected much information of the common materials when he was on the west coast but he failed to recognize some of the spell materials.
Half an hour later, they finished checking most of the goods. Angele did not find anything valuable but Liv purchased a pair of beautiful earrings. The earrings were decorated with rubies and there were silver glints on the surfaces of the gems.
“That’s all you have?” Angele frowned.
“I showed you so many items, yet none of them caught your attention?” Freywood was a bit speechless.
“Well, I won’t buy anything if that’s what you only have…” Angele shook his head and yawned.
“Alright, we do have something that I can’t even recognize in one of the carriages but you might be interested.”
Freywood led Angele and Liv to a carriage in the middle of the team quickly.
Freywood opened the door and entered the carriage first. He put down a long wooden plank as the stair.
Angele and Liv stepped on the plank and entered the carriage as well.
The carriage was spacious enough for about five people to stand inside.
There was a middle-aged man sitting in front of a black wooden desk, wearing a black cloak.
“Master Kodo, they are here to see the…special item,” Freywood lowered his head and said.
“No problem.” The man raised his head and looked at Angele.
Angele was a bit surprised as he did not see any pupil in the man’s eyes, but he could feel the man’s sight falling on him.
The man’s white eyes were eye-catching under the dim light.
The man took out a small silver accessory box from a large iron case on the side.
He put the box on the desk and opened it.
Some strange colorful dust leaked out of the box and dripped down to the desk, it almost looked like sticky liquid.
The colorful dust was actually formed by tiny cubes; the cubes were so small that they almost looked like strange beans.
Those colorful cubes left the box and moved around on the desk. They gathered together and turned into a small child.
The kid sat on the desk and it looked like that he was eating his fingers.
“Queen Christina’s Cube…” Liv suddenly opened her mouth.
Angele and the other people inside the carriage all stared at her after hearing what she said.
“You know this item?” Angele turned to Liv and looked at her.
“Yeah.” Liv nodded slightly. “I have seen it somewhere, but I don’t remember the exact location. It was a long time ago but I still remember the name.”
“What can it do?” Angele wondered. He watched the kid crawling on the desk, it seemed like the kid was curious about the people around him.
“I don’t know. Queen Christina’s Cube has always been a mystery. You need to find out how to use it yourself. I don’t think it’s a powerful item, though. Rumors tell that the cube was found in an unknown realm by the ancient wizards.” Liv shook her head.
Angele rubbed his chin. “How much is it?”
Freywood was happy that something finally suited the young man’s taste.
“How about 15 crystal cards?”
“I’ll give you five crystal cards. I want to buy it just because I like to collect mysterious items.” Angele shook his head.
“Well…how about eight crystal cards? This is the lowest price I can accept. We spent a lot of money purchasing this from a…Anyway, five is way too low.”
The conversation lasted for more than ten minutes before they finally agreed on the price. Angele paid six crystal cards for the cube.
