Angele smiled and walked to them quickly.
“I thought it would take you a while.”
“The location was fairly close,” Hikari wiped the dust off her long robe and smiled. “They couldn’t handle the damage dealt by my potions.”
“Alright, let’s wait for Reyline to come back and I’ll tell you the true reason why I gathered you here.” A mysterious smile appeared on Stigma’s face.
“The true reason? Again?” Angele exchanged eye contact with Hikari, they were both curious.
However, Stigma changed the topic right away. “Alright, let me introduce my sister to you. This is Della, Della Unochi.” He pushed the girl in red to the front.
Della was shy, her face blushed as Stigma pushed her forward.
“Umm… Thank you for helping me and my brother!” she hesitated for a second then bowed to Angele and Hikari; there was a serious expression on his face.
“Help? Well, you can say that.” Hikari looked at Della. “But your brother doesn’t really need our help…”
Angele chuckled. Stigma was a rank 3 wizard. Although his mentality was unstable due to the fast progression, he was still much stronger than the average wizards. Stigma had already achieved what most wizards could not achieve all their lives.
“Still, thanks for helping us. It was a tough situation.” Della raised her head and bowed again. She was elegant and polite.
“You brother is much stronger than us.” Angele looked at Della. “You’re a good girl, Della. Contact me if you need my help. You can treat me like a… big brother, maybe? Ha.” He wanted to treat Della well since it seemed like she was the most important person to Stigma.
“What? Big brother? Come on…” Stigma shook his head and laughed. “Oh, right, Reyline’s still fighting?”
“He’s almost done and he’ll be back soon.” Hikari activated the communication rune and exchanged messages with Reyline.
She closed her eyes for a while and sent several more messages.
“Yeah, he’ll be here soon. Let’s just be patient.”
The four just waited by the edge of the canyon quietly.
Della was curious about Angele and Hikari.
She still could not believe that Stigma in front of her was the same person she used to know. The man killed a group of assassins easily and his mentality wave was incredibly strong.
Della protected Stigma when he was young but the situation changed. She was still trying to figure out what was going on.
She walked to Angele and started asking questions.
Della already had a long conversation with Hikari but she did not learn much valuable information. She decided to ask the man that wanted to be her ‘big brother’.
“So, my brother became a formal wizard a long time ago?”
“Yeah, actually, I’m not sure if you have noticed or not.” Angele looked at Della. “Your brother is definitely a… siscon.”
“Siscon? What does that mean?” Della, Stigma, and Hikari all looked confused.
“A term that describes a brother that wants to have a romantic or… sexual relationship with his own sister,” Angele explained.
“What?” Della was still a bit confused. Several seconds later, her face blushed again after finally understanding what Angele just said.
She turned around and stared at Stigma.
“Seriously? Stigma!” she shouted and jumped to her brother. Della scratched Stigma’s face with her nails and bit him in the right shoulder.
Stigma grunted and fell to the ground. They rolled several times on the grass. Della rode on Stigma’s body and slapped his face several times.
Stigma did not fight back at all, he just let Della hit him. It almost looked like he was enjoying being beaten by his sister, everything was shown on his face.
Della did not notice the change, but Angele and Hikari shook their heads after seeing Stigma’s expression.
Reyline finally appeared when they were having some fun. There was a bloody human head in his right hand. The man had a blank expression and his left shoulder was soaked in blood.
“What happened?” Stigma stopped his sister immediately. He kissed Della’s cheeks and quickly stood up.
“Nothing. It’s about my… organization,” Reyline said in a light tone.
He dropped the human head to the ground. “And this is an elder of your family I believe. I tried to talk to him, but it didn’t work out.”
The human head rolled several times on the ground and left a trail of blood behind. It was an old man with a long white beard. Even in death, his eyes remained wide open.
Della was about to blame Stigma for kissing her cheeks but the human head caught her attention.
“Elder Rumble… He was an old fogey…” she looked at the Reyline with mixed emotions.
Short blonde hair, handsome face, and elegant behavior, the man was like a perfect knight from a teenage girl’s dream.
“You woke up?” Reyline forced a smile on his face after noticing Della’s sight. “Hello, I’m your brother’s friend and my name is Reyline. You can just call me Rey if you want to.”
“I’m Della. Thank you for helping me and my brother.” Della stood up and bowed to Reyline politely.
“Alright, I’ll start explaining why I gathered you here since everyone is back,” Stigma cleared his throat and said.
“Huh? I thought you only wanted us to deal with your family problem.” Reyline was confused.
“I think you all know the legends about the altars in the Abyss Canyon, right?” Stigma glanced around. “My family problem is nothing compared to what I’m about to tell you. We killed all the elders in my family and I’ll tell my father everything after I go back to my family. I shall be the one to rule the family council. Also, Hikari and Reyline, you’re having trouble creating the mentality crystal, right?”
Stigma glared at Reyline and Hikari.
They looked surprised after hearing him.
“How did you find out?” Hikari stared at Stigma.
“My eyes.” Stigma pointed at his eyes. “I can see through a lot of things with my eyes.”
“The Eye of the Truth.” Reyline’s expression changed as he spat out the words.
Stigma nodded but he did not say anything else.
Angele knew what the Eye of the Truth was and he gave Stigma a strange look.
“What is the Eye of the Truth?” Della had never heard of the name.
“It’s simple. He can see through the walls and your clothes,” Angele sighed and explained. “He’s using the Eye of the Truth every time you see a black glow around his eyes.”
Della thought for a while and her face quickly blushed. It seemed like the description reminded her of something.
“Stigma!” she screamed furiously. “So that’s why you wait outside my room every time I go take a shower? What are you thinking? Do you really look at your own sister that way? Seriously? Stigma?” she jumped on Stigma and bit him on the right shoulder again.
It sounded like a knife cutting through a piece of meat.
Angele took a step back after seeing the scene.
Stigma opened his mouth but he did not scream. It seemed like Della was not holding back this time. She was biting with a lot of force.
Suddenly, a strange noise came from the sky.
They looked at the sky at the same time.
It was an enormous black eagle, its wings spread wide open. The eagle rotated in the sky and it blocked the sunlight.
Della’s bite barely hurt Stigma’s shoulder, he was a wizard after all. Still, two lines of teeth marks were left on his skin.
“What’s that? It has been flying above my head for a while,” Della raised her head and asked.
Stigma’s expression turned serious after he saw the black eagle.
He glanced at Angele and saw Angele nodding at him. It seemed like they already knew what was going on.
“Reyline and Hikari, can you go back to the air transportation city and wait for us there? Angele and I have some things to take care of. We’ll go find you after we’re done,” Stigma said.
“I want to go with you,” Della followed.
“Go with Reyline and Hikari. Don’t worry. We’ll be fine. There are some insects following us and we need to shake them off.” Stigma looked relaxed.
“Are you sure?”
Angele raised his head, staring at the eagle. Suddenly, Henn’s voice echoed in his ears.
“The thunder eagle… Haven’t seen such a beautiful creature in years.”
“It’s not the time to praise an eagle. What you tried to do to me is unacceptable, but we should focus on Alicia now,” Angele responded in a cold tone.
“It seems like you’re hiding many secrets from me…” it seemed like Henn learned something when she tried to take control of Angele’s body.
“I’m a wizard and I have my special abilities. Why are you surprised?” Angele smiled. It was a gentle and mysterious smile. It almost looked like his body was surrounded by a strange aura.
“Whatever. I’m just curious.” Henn was not concerned. She knew that Angele could not get rid of her yet.
Stigma and Hikari already decided where they would meet after everything was done.
Hikari, Reyline, and Della started heading to the air transportation city right away.
Stigma raised his head and looked at the eagle again.
“It’s the mount of the wizards that ambushed me. Let’s find a better battlefield.”
“Sure.” Angele nodded slightly.
They exchanged eye contact quickly.
The two disappeared at the same time.
Two golden flashes of lightning were released by the eagle and struck the ground right after they left.
The lightning turned into two men in long silver robes.
The two men’s blonde hair looked like golden liquid, shining in the sunlight. Their skin was pale and their faces were handsome. They both had golden pupils. The man on the left had a triangular silver rune in the center of his forehead, and the man on the right had a rune that was similar in color but shaped like a crescent moon.
“Master Cena, they escaped,” one of the men said in a light tone.
“No, they’re trying to find a better place to fight,” the man with a crescent moon on his forehead told him. He crossed his arms and glanced around. “They’re trying to challenge the wizard lord’s palace. People already forgot how strong the shadow lord is… That’s why I hate peaceful eras…”
“We shall spread despair and fear again… It’s the number one rule in the palace.” The other man chuckled. “It took us so long to find them… but it’s fine… we can finish them off here.”
“You’re probably the reason why I’m lucky. Every mission with you will become much easier than I thought.” The man turned around and turned into a golden lighting, disappearing into the air.
The other man chuckled, turned around, and disappeared into the air as well.
