Without uttering a single word, Shozo glared at Angele while shaking his head and disappeared into the air as he stepped into a ball of black flame.
The rest of the guests looked at Angele as if they were watching a clown performing.
The scene was absolutely humiliating.
Lyn stood behind Angele and pulled his sleeves.
“Master Angele, I think we should just leave.”
Angele nodded and gave Doris one final glance. “Let’s go.”
He turned around and departed from the main hall, with Lyn swiftly following him from behind.
Outside the main hall, Mincola, Sella, and Suman had already been shoved into a black carriage. The door was closed instantly. “Go!” the coachman shouted. The carriage soon started moving.
Angele looked at the carriage sighing with mixed emotions. He then began heading to his own carriage.
Suddenly, he heard a loud noise coming from an explosion before he entered.
The black carriage was set into a ball of conflagration after blowing into pieces. Sparks of the orange flames fell and lit some of the grass. Angele heard the butlers near the gate shouting in fear.
The light of the flames illuminated the grassy area.
Red mist quickly left the exploded carriage then sank into the ground.
“The carriage exploded!”
Two shadows jumped off the hall and landed in front of the exploded carriage which reformed into two human beings.
The one on the left was Shozo, whom Angele thought he had already left the place. The one on the right was a man in a tight black suit with a mask holding two crimson tridents.
Doris, too, rushed out of the hall with a disappointed face. The guards and the guests swiftly ran outside through the side door.
Shozo pointed at the burning carriage.
At once, the carriage was quickly enveloped by his mentality wave.
The flame weakened and soon extinguished several seconds later. Only green smoke continued rising from the remains of the carriage.
“They are gone. Three guards have been killed,” a guard checked the remains and reported back.
“They broke the flame chain then cast a short-distance teleportation spell. We can still find and capture them,” the masked man spoke in a deep tone.
“Guards! Search the entire mansion!” Doris pointed at the guards and commanded.
Angele and Lyn stood beside the carriage watching the guards running around like chickens that had their heads cut off.
“They have already escaped anyway…Let’s go.” Angele opened the door and jumped into the carriage. Lyn nodded and jumped onto the driving seat.
“Let us return to Elemental Hand. Tell Hakeem to wait for us outside the city,” Angele commanded.
The carriage started moving toward the exit slowly.
No one paid too much attention to his carriage. Many guests had lost their initially higher opinion to Angele due to the way Doris had treated him inside the hall. In any case, Angele did not want to deal too much with those people. There was no longer any point for him to remain.
The carriage left the mansion.
Angele sat on his seat quietly while he listened to the noise of the rolling wheels.
Lyn was not sure what she should say, so she decided to focus on driving the carriage instead.
A deep voice came from outside.
Lyn suddenly stopped the carriage, and Angele pushed the door open.
He saw Doris and the rank 4 masked wizard standing in front of their carriage. Their carriage was also surrounded by a troop of guards in black armor.
“Huh? Master Doris? What are you doing?” Angele asked innocently.
“It was you, right? Where did you hide them?” Shozo revealed himself from the shadows and questioned in a grim tone. “You were the one who blew up the carriage.”
Angele was not sure why Shozo was treating him as if he was nothing. If the man truly was still trying to develop a romantic relationship with Vivian, then he should be helping him resolve the matter at hand. But instead, he chose to help Doris, a man that was not even a part of Elemental Hand.
The rumor telling that Shozo was a cold-blooded bastard seemed to be actually true. A wizard who only cared for things and people that would bring benefits to him.
“Me?” Angele chuckled. “Master Shozo, I am but a rank 1 wizard. Do you really think I can cast such a powerful spell without being noticed?”
“Shut it. You are the only one who tried to lend them a hand.” Doris walked to the carriage. “Get off the carriage. I know you are the third elder’s son. Hand them over to me, then I will let you go.”
“I told you already. It wasn’t me,” Angele coldly replied.
“Cut the crap. We have already searched every nook and cranny of the area. Your carriage is the only we have yet to check.” The masked man raised his tridents.
“You will not trust me no matter what I say, will you?” Angele shook his head and jumped off the carriage.
“Hand them over, then I will let you leave.” Doris’s cold gaze fell on Angele.
“What if I don’t want to?” Angele knew that there was no longer any point in arguing with him. Black patterns flashed in his eyes.
“Well, if you don’t…” Doris pursed his lips.
“You will regret your decision!”
A sharp spark manifested out of Doris’s shadow as soon as he finished speaking. Angele quickly conjured a silver shield to block the attack.
Flames sparked between the two.
With a flick of his finger, countless silver metal needles appeared in front of Angele.
Silver light flashed in the air and countless silver needles rained above Doris. There was a black needle mixed in with the silver needles, aiming at Doris’ chest.
Doris was not fast enough to react, but the black spikes from his forcefield blocked most of the silver needles for him.
Nevertheless, Doris had still gotten struck by the black needle. He lost consciousness while his chest was constantly being petrified.
“How dare you!”
The masked man raised his right hand and aimed at Angele.
The powerful mentality released by a rank 4 wizard restricted Angele from making any movement.
He could only watch as the masked man grasped his neck, while the trident’s tips were infused with dark red energy particles. Angele was uncertain of his metal barrier being able to handle the attack.
The man had gotten completely infuriated that he was now actually trying to kill Angele.
“Wait!” Shozo nervously shouted from one side.
“Arrogant bastard!” Suddenly, a deep, hoarse voice echoed in Angele’s ears.
A translucent blue hand appeared in front of Angele’s chest and seized the incoming trident.
A noise that sounded similar to metal being squeezed by an immense force reverberated.
The masked man grunted, and he almost looked as if he had been struck by lightning. He retreated several steps. Blood was leaking out of his eyes and ears.
His hand holding the trident melted like candle, falling to the ground and turning into a puddle of red sticky fluid.
Shozo’s black energy barrier finally arrived and somehow hindered the blue hand from striking the masked man once more.
Then, the blue hand lightly tapped on the energy barrier, causing it to break into pieces in but a moment. It was still going after the masked man.
The blue hand increased in length from one meter to ten meters. However, it had been blocked once again, now by a black vortex that had appeared out of thin air.
There was noise coming from the black vortex which sounded like a beast roaring in pain.
The vortex disappeared immediately.
The blue hand swung to the right and almost struck Shozo.
Shozo’s expression changed. His right hand reformed into black mist that contained flashes of lightning within.
Red light flashed in the air as the blue hand made contact with the black mist.
The shockwave from the violent explosion blew everyone away.
Angele noticed that his body was covered by a thin layer of energy barrier while he was flying away.
His sight blurred, and his head ached. Angele could not see what was happening in front.
“Henn, was that you?” he asked.
“I was the only one who could help you in that situation.” Henn sounded exhausted. “Escape with your friend now. Shozo and the masked man are severely injured. This is your chance. I wasted too much mentality during that fight. There will be nothing else I can do after two minutes.”
“Thanks.” Angele knew it was not the right time to talk and he could finally see things clearly again.
Most of the people had been blown away by the impact. The blue energy barrier around Angele absorbed most of the shockwave and protected Lyn from the explosion.
Blue mist permeated the air and the visibility was extremely low.
Lyn was still feeling dizzy. Angele grabbed her right hand quickly and ditched the carriage. He checked the direction using Zero and ran into the undergrowth.
‘Shozo should never be trusted.’ Angele confirmed his conjecture. He was not certain just what Shozo was up to but his ‘love’ towards Vivian was most likely fake.
Shozo hesitated when the masked man attempted to kill Angele. He had plenty of time to release that energy barrier earlier, yet he had not done so. It was almost as if he was trying to protect that man from being killed by Henn instead. Those two must be very well acquainted with each other.
Angele knew for sure that it was Mincola who destroyed the carriage and cast the teleportation spell. He was an elite of Dark Wizard Tower, so he definitely had the capability to break the chain.
Angele took one final look at the middle of the explosion radius. Shozo and the masked man were both lying on the ground coughing loudly as if they had caught a bad cold.
Blood also trickled out of their eyes, mouth, and ears every time they coughed. Such a scene was terrifying to behold.
“Move.” Angele turned around and dragged Lyn away from that place.
With but a few moments, they soon disappeared into the blue mist.
