Angele stood up, walked to the stone gate, and glared at the three wizards. They were sitting at the table with their eyes closed, waiting for the time to come.
The room was so quiet that he could hear the three breathing.
Angele opened the door and stepped outside.
The temperature in the underground tunnel was high and the sulfurous smell was intense. He cut the volcano lizard’s meat into pieces and mixed them with some mushroom to make a soup. He separated the soup into three portions and returned to the stone room.
“Have some food. It seems like you’ll have to wait for a while.”
Morrian and Milan were talking about something in low voices. Seth was taking a nap in his chair.
“Thank you, Angele. We don’t want to cause you too much trouble, but…” Morrian looked Angele and apologized.
“It’s fine. There’s nothing I can do for Nico, so I’ll just try my best to assist you on other matters.” Angele smiled.
Angele put down the soup on the table and returned to his own seat. He looked at the white circle carefully.
The scene in the circle was shaking slightly—it seemed like Nico was riding a horse, and the trees on the sides were moving backward.
“She’ll be traveling on the road for about three more days. Nico’s army was moving to a large canyon as her family was fighting against her enemies there. According to the message Nico sent a while ago, there were more than 10,000 people fighting in the war, and her army was the last reinforcements her brother had. If Nico’s army is eliminated, her family will be destroyed.”
Morrian stopped for a second and continued to explain, “We need to wait till Nico’s enemy tries to attack them before we cast our spells through the energy pool.”
Milan nodded and woke Seth up for the food.
Angele sat down and waited for the three to finish their meal. He then took the empty dishes back to the kitchen and washed them clean. Angele returned to the stone room again and started observing the energy pool. It was the first time he saw wizards provide ranged support using the pool and he wanted to collect as much information as possible.
Three days were like nothing to wizards, they would not mind the wait at all.
Time flew, and three days passed in the blink of an eye.
The atmosphere in the stone room was getting heavier and heavier.
Morrian was staring at the circle and Milan was meditating with her eyes closed. Seth sat on the side, he was playing with a red monkey. The monkey was jumping back and forth on his shoulders while yelling.
Angele lowered his head; there were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
“Alright, get ready! It’s about time!” Morrian suddenly shouted.
The three stopped what they were doing and looked at the white circle immediately.
It seemed like Nico had entered the battlefield and the scene was still shaky. The cavalry in blue armor was everywhere, riding on black horses. All the cavalrymen who entered Nico’s sight were blown into pieces as if they were hit by bombs, turning into blood mist.
“Master Nico! Someone is coming to us!” A nervous voice came from somewhere far behind.
Nico quickly turned her head around and looked at a small hill ahead. Two men in black were attacking a man in blue on top of the hill.
The blue robe was trying his best to protect a silver carriage under the war banner. Electric pulses, purple energy flows, and lasers were flying everywhere around the three.
“Damn!” Nico’s voice came from the white circle.
She started charging toward the small hill right away.
Three lava balls were released from her right hand and they soared through the air, flying toward the hill.
The surface of the lava balls was red and there was golden lava flowing through the tiny cracks on it. The soldiers around were terrified; they moved to the side quickly, their horses running around in fear.
The path in front of Nico was cleared and she could easily move through.
*BOOM BOOM BOOM*
The loud noise echoed in the air as the three lava balls exploded, turning into three golden shadows. The golden shadows flew toward the men in black like lightning bolts. For some reason, the lava drops did not splash around.
“All hail the Muses!” one of the men in black shouted. A distorted minotaur shadow appeared in front of him—it was enormous.
The minotaur opened its mouth and roared.
A ray of golden light penetrated the three golden shadows, turning them into countless golden light dots, disappearing into the air.
“The Roar of Minotaur! It’s my first time seeing the ability being activated successfully.” Milan was impressed. “There’s only a small chance that you can learn the ability when practicing an advanced meditation technique called the Minotaur’s Ritual. Also, you can’t control the ability very well even if you can activate it. However, the ability might be triggered when the caster is just trying to move the energy particles. Nico’s opponent was lucky.”
Inside the circle, the golden ray flew straight at Nico after destroying the lava balls.
Seth raised his left hand and red light dots appeared between his fingers.
“Wait!” Milan stopped him.
“But…!” Seth was getting nervous.
“Trust Nico. She’s weaker than Shozo and me, but she won’t be defeated so easily. Remember, she’s also one of Master Vivian’s students,” Morrian spoke in a light tone.
“Holy Light!” Nico’s voice came from the circle again.
A ball of red light appeared in front of Nico. The light ball was about the size of a fist, and it blinked twice.
A large web covered with fist-sized runes and strings was created in front of Nico by the energy particles within seconds. All the strings were connected to the light ball in the center.
The ray hit the large web hard.
The red web and the golden ray started fighting against each other.
The endless golden energy particles were slowly turning the red web’s color to gold. Strangely, it seemed like the web was absorbing the golden ray’s power and it was expanding.
Although the web was expanding, the golden ray’s strength was penetrating it at a much faster rate.
The golden ray finally went through the large web.
However, the web bought Nico enough time to dodge the attack. She moved to the left and kept charging forward. The man on the right was still fighting against the man in blue and the other man in black already released five elemental golems.
Two of them were earth golems and they were completely black. The golems had strong bodies and they rushed toward Nico as they opened their mouths.
There were also three wind golems that were about one meter tall each. They surrounded the earth golems, laughing. The wind golems looked like three green ribbons.
Some of the cavalrymen around were top-level Knights—Angele could see the white light surrounding their bodies. They tried to attack the earth golems, but their weapons were easily blocked. The cavalrymen were then grabbed by the earth golems and thrown to the ground. The Knights were severely injured and the blood they spat out turned into a small pool on the ground.
The land started shaking as the two earth golems rushed toward Nico.
Morrian, Seth, and Milan’s faces turned serious after seeing that scene.
“Nico’s enemies were well prepared…” Milan muttered.
At that moment, Nico’s voice came from the white circle again.
“Morrian and Millan, it’s about time. Destroy that hill for me.”
The three exchanged glances and nodded slightly.
“Earth Fire!” Morrian raised his right hand and reached to the circle. A terrifying red skull appeared behind him, with black flames burning in the skull’s eyes.
“Light of the Night!” Milan raised her hands as well and a pair of purple eyes appeared behind her.
Seth did the same thing, causing black flames to start burning on his right arm. “Decompose!”
They slowly moved their hands to the center.
The three hands merged into each other as they touched. The scene was quite strange.
Their hands looked like a large ball of play dough. The play dough turned into a humongous hand that was about half a meter wide, then sank into the table and reached to the small hill in Nico’s sight.
Angele’s eyes were wide open and he could feel that his body became numb.
The horrifying energy surrounded the wizards in the stone room. Angele opened his mouth and tried to inhale, but he couldn’t feel the air.
It felt like the air in the room was solidified and Angele thought he was an insect that was trapped in amber. His attributes were extremely high, but he could barely move.
Angele stared at the screen inside the light circle and his pupils constricted. He finally understood the true power of the inheritor magic circle.
On a large plain in front of a canyon.
The blue cavalry was fighting against the black cavalry, their roars and war drums as their background music.
A beautiful girl in a white battle dress was fighting on the battlefield—it was Nico. Her dress was soaked in blood.
She looked at the small hill in the front calmly, holding the necklace tightly in hand. Blue light leaked out of the gaps between her fingers—the light came from a diamond-shaped blue crystal.
“Morrian and Milan, it’s about time. Destroy that hill for me,” she spoke in a cold tone.
The diamond-shaped crystal shined and released a ray of blue light after she finished her words. The light struck into the air, leaving a blue trail behind—the trail slowly disappeared after several seconds.
Suddenly, the sunlight disappeared from the land, and the sky was covered by a sea of black clouds.
The clouds turned into a large vortex which started spinning on top of the hill slowly.
The battlefield was covered by the shadow. The soldiers stopped fighting at the same time; they raised their heads and stared at the sky.
People underneath the shadow could feel terrifying pressure coming from the sky. The soldiers could barely move under such heavy pressure; it almost looked like they were trapped in a swamp.
The people on the hill were the ones who were directly impacted by the pressure.
The two men in black and the man in blue were moving like turtles. The scene looked like a slow-motion movie. It would take them two seconds just to complete a simple movement.
It took one of the men about ten seconds to raise his right hand, fear was written all over his face.
The earth golems and the wind golems were also slowed down—they were having a hard time moving forward.
Nico looked at the hill, looking depressed. “Maxwell, the family will remember your sacrifice.” Her voice echoed in the sky.
The man in blue already accepted his death, he looked happy after hearing Nico’s voice.
Seconds later, an enormous hand appeared in the center of the giant vortex and hit the top of the hill. The hand looked like a white stone pillar that fell from the sky.
