The four green robes took several steps back but they were still within the range of the explosion.
The leader of the green robes threw a green band into the air.
The green band floated on top of their heads and created a green light screen.
The green robe then took out a white bird statue from his pouch and tapped on it lightly.
The stone bird was brought to life and flew toward the lava drops, leaving a trail of freezing smoke behind its tail.
*PA PA PA*
The lava dots kept striking the green light screen and broke it into pieces.
The lava dots hit the white bird after destroying the energy barrier. White and red energy flows exploded in the air.
The four green robes were pushed back by the shockwave.
“Damn! Stop them!” the leader shouted and hid behind the other three assassins, carefully pulling out a necklace with white gems from his neck.
The man looked at the young man and the woman, it seemed like they were still preparing for the next attack.
The leader knew that he had no time to waste, so he quickly removed the necklace from his neck. It was an important magic device that he had been carrying for years and he could only activate it when necessary. The man decided to use it after seeing his strongest spell, Froze Hawk, perish in the rain of lava.
The necklace was his last hope.
The man held the necklace in hand and shook it slightly.
The necklace slowly disappeared into the air.
“Ah!” the leader screamed in pain, he sounded like a dying beast.
His head was moving down his neck slowly—several seconds later, the man’s head completely sank into his chest, and only a bloody hole was left on his neck.
The man took off his long robe, revealing his naked body, and a long red scar appeared on his chest.
The red scar turned into a one-meter-long mouth—it looked like a human mouth, but much longer and larger.
The mouth stuck its red tongue out and licked its lips.
“Move away!” the man shouted, his voice was deep and loud.
The three green robes were having a hard time blocking the lava drops, their faces turned pale and there were beads of cold sweat dripping down their chins. They quickly moved to the side after hearing the leader’s voice.
“Mouth of the Abyss!” the large mouth in front of the leader’s chest opened.
The mouth looked like an endless black hole that was about to suck every object into it.
The lava drops were dragged into the mouth by a mysterious force and they all sank into the darkness.
Mud, grass, and the broken band in the air mixed into the lava drops and they were all flying into the mouth.
Lyn’s expression changed. She rubbed a red ring on her left hand. There was a total of four red rings on her left hand and the one she touched was on her pinky.
“Let me see how much you can swallow!” she suddenly raised her left hand.
The fire sparked in her hand and an enormous illusion of lava ball appeared on top of Lyn’s head as she held her fist tight.
The lava ball’s illusion had a diameter of three meters and it could easily fit an adult inside it.
Several seconds later, the illusion slowly turned into reality and the heat waves started spreading in all directions.
The grass on the ground was ignited and a dark smoke cylinder rose into the sky as the heat waves spread.
The dark red lava ball was covered with countless tiny cracks, with golden lava peeking from within them.
“Die!” Lyn pointed at the leader of the assassins.
The terrifying lava ball flew toward the man.
Angele stood behind Lyn quietly. It was the first time he saw a real fight between two rank 2 wizards. They traded several spells within seconds.
However, it seemed like the leader of the assassins stood no chance against Lyn. Lyn just threw several lava balls at him without making any defensive moves. The rain of lava blocked most of the incoming projectiles for her.
Her fighting style was very aggressive.
The humongous lava ball completely blocked Angele’s sight.
The earth was shaking violently. The golden lava and the flames swallowed the four assassins. Rays of blinding golden light illuminated the land.
Large areas of grass were ignited and the furious fire was expanding quickly. The grass was burnt to ashes and left on the ground.
Black smoke rose from the land and the whole plain turned into a mess. Meanwhile, the red flames were still expanding.
Angele raised his right arm.
“Kel’Zula’s Hand,” he chanted a short incantation.
A red glow appeared on his armband.
A ball of flame came from the opposite side, it shrank and sank into Angele’s right arm.
*WOO WOO WOO*
More and more fireballs flew to Angele and were absorbed by his right arm. They looked like birds returning to their nest.
About ten seconds later, all the burning flames in the area were absorbed by the armband. The black smoke slowly disappeared into the air.
Angele lowered his right hand and looked at the four dead bodies on the ground.
“Let’s move. They are not the only ones.”
“Yes, master.” Lyn lowered her right hand and the red light slowly disappeared from her ring.
Suddenly, Angele detected a strange mentality movement from behind.
Angele’s expression changed as he turned his head around.
‘It’s Stigma… He already advanced to rank 3…’ Angele was a bit surprised.
It took Stigma only a decade to advance to rank 3 from rank 1. His progression was extremely fast even when compared to the wizards from the central continent.
‘Henn, what do you think?’
Angele tried to communicate with Henn through the mentality wave.
‘Why are you asking me? You’re not working hard enough. Well, Arisma won’t ask Stigma to attack you before we find out who ambushed us that day. Don’t worry.’
‘The Mask of the Black Wing was the only thing you gave me but it didn’t suit my style and you’re saying that I didn’t work hard enough… Seriously?’ Angel responded quickly.
‘I helped you become Vivian’s son. She helped you a lot, right?’ Henn sneered, ‘Also, do you really think I don’t know why you kept your long hair?’
‘Huh?’ Angele narrowed his eyes. ‘What else do you know?’
‘I know everything,’ Henn replied in a cold tone. ‘Alright, don’t waste our time. Find Stigma and Arisma. I want to know what intel she had. Those bastards… I want them dead…’
‘Well, I don’t want them dead. Like I said, I’m not your puppet.’
‘We’re in the same boat.’ Henn chuckled. ‘If they found out that Arisma and I are still alive in your body, they’ll track you down and kill you. It’s something you have to live with. Haha.’
‘I need to get my hands on the Thousand Shadow Orb as soon as possible.’ Angele pursed his lips.
‘I know you have the recipe, but you have to be extremely lucky if you want to craft that magic device by yourself. Also, you need to collect all those rare materials. How long do you think it’ll take for you to complete the device?’ Henn questioned.
‘Whatever, let’s go.’ Angele sighed and started heading to the source of the strong mentality wave.
Lyn followed after Angele and they disappeared into the horizon quickly.
The Abyss Canyon.
The chilling wind was coming out of the deep dark crack.
Stigma held Della in his arms; they were surrounded by two groups of people.
The assassins in green robes were led by a man named Northrend, and a group of young swordsmen wearing white leather armors was led by a man in a long white robe that was standing in the center of their formation.
“Northrend, that’s the inheritor of the Sherman Family?” Stigma looked at the man in a long white robe and questioned in a deep tone.
Northrend was breathing heavily, he was so scared that his body was still trembling. If Oscar did not help him when Stigma casted the spell, they would already be dead.
He had no idea how he should answer Stigma’s question.
Northrend was not sure how Stigma suddenly became so strong. Oscar was his partner, but the man was from a different family. Northrend suddenly thought of something—if Stigma could lead the family with his incredible power, he would no longer need the help of the Sherman Family. The current family leader was trying to save the family by sending Della to Oscar as a gift.
“Don’t give him too much pressure. The man is just following orders,” Oscar interrupted, “Della, hand over the half-body lizard, you have no choice. The situation is getting worse and I’m doing this for your family. I’m not saving this thing for my own use. Someone else wants it…”
Stigma and Della’s pupils constricted.
Stigma’s strike was blocked by the man named Oscar. Although Oscar’s barrier was buffed by the swordsmen he brought here, it still survived the attack. Stigma had no idea who was behind this whole thing.
“To be honest, I can’t win a fight against you. However, the wizard guild has my back. I will not try to defend against your next attack, but do you really want to kill me?” Oscar looked at Stigma and Della. “I’m an authorized member of the wizard’s guild and information about you will be transferred back to my organization if you kill me. I know you don’t care about your own life, but what about your sister, your cousin, your mother, and your family? They will be dragged into this unfortunate event. Do you… understand?”
Stigma’s expression turned serious, and he just stood there without saying a word.
“Oscar, wizard’s guild has you back, huh? Do you remember me?” suddenly, a voice came from behind. A handsome man with short blonde hair was walking to them quickly—it was Reyline. Hikari was following after him. As for Angele and Lyn, they joined the scene as well several minutes later.
“Reyline… You again!” A tall man behind Oscar stepped forward, staring at Reyline with hatred in his eyes. “You’re everywhere. Why do you have to get in my way again and again?”
“Those should be my words, Rumple. How dare you call yourselves authorized members of the wizard’s guild?!” Reyline shouted in a cold tone.
