“Insurance?” Angele hesitated for a second. “I’m here to pick up something, the number is 95452.”
The lion head and the snake head looked disappointed after hearing his words.
“Fine, picking things up. Damn. People don’t buy insurance anymore?” the lion head muttered. He turned around, then grabbed a black leather scroll. He opened it and started reading.
“954532… this one.” The lion handed over a blank paper. “Your communication rune, please.”
Angele pressed on the surface of the paper.
A black snake that was biting its own tail appeared on the paper.
One of the lockers behind the lion was unlocked. Th lion opened the locker and took out a wooden square box with a red lid.
“Your item, Sir.” The lion handed the box to Angele.
Angele grabbed the box carefully—it was quite heavy.
“Go ahead.” Angele stepped aside. Hikari stepped forward right away, but Reyline was not interested.
Angele made it look like he was checking the box; however, in fact, he was glaring at the white robes that were on the other counter.
There were three of them—the other people around them looked like guards. Two of the white robes were female and they had triangular silver runes on their foreheads.
The third one was male and he was talking to someone behind the counter. The man also had rune on his forehead, it was a crescent moon and it looked identical to the one Cena had, but the man’s was a bit brighter.
Angele noticed that the man tried to use the robe to hide the weapon on his back—it looked like a long sword or a long scimitar.
Hikari and Reyline retrieved their items as well.
Hikari was holding a black accessory box in hand; she looked surprised as she opened it. Hikari closed the box after checking the contents and carefully put it in her pouch.
Reyline was playing with a short red stick that looked like a flute, but it seemed like he had not figured out how to use it yet.
“Let’s go.” Angele looked at the two.
Reyline glared at Angele and send him a question using the energy particles.
“You know them, Green?”
“Yeah, they’re members of the shadow lord’s palace. Stay away from them,” Angele responded and started heading to the door.
“Shadow lord’s palace?” Reyline’s expression changed, it seemed like he knew the name. Hikari noticed that there was something going on as well.
The three left the trading company, walked past the garden, and stopped in the shade behind a lamp.
Hikari learned about the information from Reyline and her expression changed.
“I might be able to help. I knew someone from the shadow lord’s palace and I can probably get some intel. Well, I hope they’re not here for what Stigma did in the ruins.”
Angele and Reyline nodded. Members of the potion master’s guild knew a lot of people as most organizations needed to purchase potions from them.
Hikari did not waste any time. She started walking right away.
She drew a Z-shaped rune in the air, it was a red glowing rune that was floating in the air.
Hikari rolled her right sleeve up and touched the red rune with an egg-shaped pattern on the sleeve.
A red energy wave was released by the rune and it disappeared after several seconds.
Hikari closed her eyes and started communicating with her contact. She opened her eyes again after everything was done.
“I got the information.”
Angele and Reyline looked excited after hearing her words.
“They’re here to investigate a robbery done by the underground races, nothing about the ruins,” Hikari looked relieved as she explained.
“Good. I didn’t expect the lords to come just for the treasure from the ruins. I’ve heard about the robbery before, it happened a while ago.” Reyline nodded slightly. “I’ll be leaving now if everything is fine. I still have a mission to take care of.”
“Later, friends.” Hikari smiled.
“See you.” Angele looked relieved as well. “I hope you will already be a rank 3 wizard the next time I see you.”
“Finally something I like the sound of.” Reyline wiped the dust from his robe. “Your servant is here, see you later.”
“Yeah.” Angele noticed that Lyn just jumped off a black carriage outside the gate. The female wizard was wearing a black silk dress with a red umbrella in hand. She looked like a girl from a noble family with the long silky gloves on her hands.
“Alright, I’m leaving, there are many potion labs need my help. Stigma’s gift surprised me. The trip was definitely worth it. Lucky me.” There was a satisfied smile on Hikari’s face.
“Well, Stigma’s task was not easy at all. I hope everything will be nice and peaceful the next time we meet.” Angele sighed.
“Well, things happen, right?” Hikari waved her right hand, turned around, and headed to the main gate with Reyline.
Angele stood in the shade and watched the two disappear. Lyn walked toward him after saying goodbye to Reyline and Hikari.
“Master.” Lyn lowered her head slightly. “Sorry, I’m late.”
“It’s all good. Give me a minute.” Angele looked at the door of the main building, it seemed like he was waiting for something.
Lyn was a bit confused. She hesitated for a second and waited patiently in the shade.
About ten minutes later, several white robes with blonde hair stepped out of the door. They were the ones at the counter earlier.
A group of people approached them. The leader was a chubby middle-aged man, he was wearing a black robe with silver decorations on the edge. He looked like a balloon in the robe.
The chubby man bowed to the white robes and followed behind them. Two teams of guards in white armor surrounded them in the center and escorted them out.
Three luxurious carriages with pearls and gems for decorations were waiting for them outside. The appearance of the carriages was eye-catching and several pedestrians were staring at it.
“That’s the governor of the air transportation city. A fat *ss that should die in a pool of money,” Lyn explained using the energy particles. “His words have much weight in the city, even the master wizard in charge of the purifying towers can’t ignore him.”
“Huh? Why is that?” Angele scanned the governor already, he was just a mortal.
“Well, his wife is related to the shadow lord palace.” It seemed like Lyn knew a lot of information about the chubby man. “I know his daughter, but we don’t talk to each other often. I just came back from her dancing party. ”
“Dancing party? Well, don’t tell me you’re interested in the ‘noble’s game’.” Angele was mocking Lyn.
“Of course not, that’s why I left earlier.” Lyn knew what Angele was implying.
Obviously, noble’s game was designed by the nobles that enjoyed wasting time on meaningless activities; they would hold a naked party after the dancing party, and have a sex party in a spa.
The second half of the party Lyn attended was something similar.
To be clear, most of the parties held by the nobles would become a mess in the second half. They would just have intercourses with the people they found charming during the party.
“I don’t really mind if you’re into something like that,” Angele said in a light tone.
“I’ve never played any noble’s game,” Lyn answered with no hesitation. She was a bit different from the other wizards Angele knew. The girl knew that her virgin body might be a valuable asset and it might help her in the future.
Angele’s sight moved as the three white robes moved. He lowered his head after they jumped onto the carriages and left.
“Let’s go, we need to get back to the Ness River as soon as possible. Something is happening here.”
“How do you know, Master?” Lyn had no idea what was going on.
“I can smell the blood from their bodies. They just killed someone.” Angele stepped out of the shadow and walked to an empty carriage that was parked by the street.
They purchased a spacious carriage from a man and hired an experienced coachman. They left the air transportation city when it was still dark outside.
Two crescent moons were hanging over the night sky. The moonlight illuminated the white clouds. They looked like fluffy cotton floating in the air.
On a plain far away from the air transportation city.
A black carriage was slowly advancing on the narrow path. The window on the right was open and there was white light inside.
A bright glass oil lamp was hanging in front of the carriage and the orange light illuminated the road ahead. The old coachman had white messy hair, he was drinking and driving with his eyes narrowed.
Angele was enjoying the night view in the carriage with a blank expression on his face. Lyn was sitting opposite of Angele, she looked sleepy. She was still wearing the silver dress.
The carriage was spacious—there was a table, a wine shelf, three chairs, and a small bed. All the furniture was made from wood.
There were several leather dolls hanging on the walls; red characters were marked on them, forming the word “peace”. The dolls were swinging as the carriage was advancing.
Angele supported his chin with the right hand and peeked out the window. The visibility was low and he could barely see the surface of the road under the dim light.
The carriage was traveling at full speed, it already went past several slower carriages.
The black plain was moving backward on the other side in Angele’s sight. There were several people camping on the roadside and there were wizards riding humongous eagles passing by.
Angele turned his head around and took out a box from his pouch.
It was the square box he’d retrieved from the trading company.
He tapped on the surface of the lid and a strange bird pattern appeared on it, releasing a black glow.
The lid moved to the right by itself.
There was a fist-sized black ball lying on the black silk quietly. The ball was translucent, and it looked like there was someone moving inside. The tiny man was struggling, and it seemed like he was trapped in the ball.
Small bumps were appearing and disappearing on the surface of the ball. It was a strange scene.
‘That’s it. The Thousand Shadow Orb…’ Angele looked happy. ‘Well, this thing should help me block my connection with Henn, but I don’t know how long it would last.”
He closed the lid again and carefully put the box under the table.
It was not something he should carry in a pouch. Thousands of shadow fiends were sealed inside the orb, the orb would explode if the fiends somehow broke through the barrier. The damage the explosion could do would be much stronger than the heart bombs.
Angele spread out his hair with his finger carefully after putting down the box.
His brown hair was now dark red. It trailed over his shoulders. The hair was same in size and length.
The light red glow was released from the musical note on his chest and it covered his hair immediately. It almost looked the hair was painted in red.
His hair color was replaced by the color of fresh blood.
Angele took out a tube filled with red gel from his pouch and carefully applied the gel on his hair.
He improved and modified the technique he learned from Todd when he was in the Nightmare Realm.
Todd stopped the butterflies from moving using chains created with energy particles. He stored a lot of spider webs in his crystal card device and they were like the spell material for the energy chains. Angele realized it was unnecessary to carry a lot of spider webs so he decided to use his own hair as the material.
