Angele kept turning the pages.
The communication runes from the wizards of Elemental Hand and some apprentices were also in the book. Most of the runes in the second half of the book were from the wizards of the west coast.
Suddenly, his finger slowly stopped at a while glowing rune—it was Nancy’s communication rune.
The rune looked like a white rose but its light was fading away, it seemed like the owner of the rune was dying.
Angele checked the glow of the rune carefully.
‘The glow… She still tried to become a formal wizard but she failed several more times.’ Her potential and life energy were probably wasted during the procedure.
Angele looked at the communication rune. He could see that the beautiful girl was slowly turning into an old woman with wrinkles all over her face.
‘It’s her own choice. I already did what I can.’ Angele shook his head and started checking the other communication runes.
Suddenly, he stopped at a dark blue rune that had the shape of a centaur—the rune was surrounded by a purple glow.
The message echoed in his ears as he touched the rune with the right index finger.
“I’m sorry, Green. I’m not sure how many years it’ll take for this message to be delivered to you. The situation here is getting worse and worse every day. Most of the signal obelisks were destroyed by the strong merfolk soldiers and I’m not sure if there’ll be enough energy for the messages to be delivered to the central continent. I had to rely on some special method to send you the message. I’ve been working with your teacher in recent years and things are going well for me. However, I have one thing that I have to tell you.” It was Isabel, her voice was so familiar.
“I’m sorry… Your father has already passed away. He became an adventurer several years ago as he said that he wanted to explore the world. Although we sent some people to protect him, his ship was destroyed by the storm when he was trying to travel across the Gem Sea. The whole ship broke into pieces; we tried to find them with the help of merfolk, but the sea had already become their grave…” Isabel sounded apologetic.
Angele knew that Isabel had already tried her best to show her emotion. She had never changed.
‘Father…’ Angele recalled the moment that he reincarnated to this world.
A familiar scene visualized in his sight. It felt like he was looking down through the window of his room in the castle. The Baron with long hair and mustache was sitting on a strong horse, taking off his gloves and smiling at Angele.
Angele stood up and sighed with mixed emotions.
He knew that this moment would come sooner or later. However, it still made him feel depressed when it came.
Angele was not the original Angele and he did not spend too much time with the Baron.
He stood beside the window and suddenly noticed that there were not many things or people connecting him with the west coast.
Cold beauty Isabel, mysterious Axis of Time, terrifying Ramsoda, endless Gem Sea, the Andes Alliance, the Anser Plain, and the perished Rudin Empire.
The faces of the people he knew and the things that happened in the past were going through his mind.
Angele just realized that he had visited so many places and met so many people.
He put his index finger on Isabel’s communication rune.
“I’ve received the message,” he spoke in a low voice.
The communication released some light blue glow, the message had been sent, but Angele was not sure if Isabel could receive it.
He took a deep breath and closed the book, putting it back into the box.
Angele’s father had passed away and he never found out where his mother was. The only one that would take care of him like taking care of a family member was Vivian. He was not sure if he should thank Henn for her evil plan or not.
“It’s probably what every wizard will go through in their lives…” He took a deep breath and stopped muttering, staring at the sky through the window.
In the Abyss Canyon.
On the yellow plain, the deep canyon looked like a long centipede lying quietly on the land, releasing chilling waves to all angles.
On the edge of the canyon, there was a white-robed person sitting quietly with his legs crossed.
The white-robed person was a young and beautiful woman; her right ear looked like the shape of a rabbit year, it was sharp and furry.
The golden sunlight landed on the woman and she looked like a white statue in the bright light.
A black bird and a white bird landed on the woman’s shoulders. They jumped and twittered; it seemed like they were not concerned about the presence of the woman.
Suddenly, the woman opened her eyes—there were two black vortexes spinning in her pupils.
“Finally,” she muttered. “The death wave didn’t remove all the traces you left on this land.”
She slowly stood up and the two birds’ bodies quickly turned white. Layers of blue ice climbed up their bodies within seconds.
The birds died and dropped to the ground.
The woman raised her right hand and released a ray of white light. The white ray stroke into the sky and turned into a standing light cylinder.
She just stood there and waited after sending the signal.
Some white smoke appeared in the sky and landed in front of the woman, turning into a man in a white robe.
“Master Erwin, you found some traces?” the man asked.
“What’s the matter?” Erwin was not interested in his question.
The man nodded. “Two more rank 4 wizards from the underground world are attacking us and we need your help. They don’t have the inheritor’s magic circle.”
“I don’t work for free.” Erwin’s expression turned cold. “Tell him that I need three more years before I can find the one who killed my sister. Just leave me alone!”
“Three years?” The man was surprised. “Don’t tell me you’re going to…”
“You guessed it. I need to go down the canyon to find my sister’s body.” Erwin shook her hands, she was losing her patience. “I’ll come back in three years.”
“But, Master, the canyon is too dangerous, and—”
“Alright, you can leave now.” Erwin waved her right hand and hit the man with a ray of white right. The man failed to finish his words and his body turned into white smoke, flying toward the sky.
Erwin walked to the edge of the canton and looked down. The vortexes in her eyes were spinning faster and faster.
The Nightmare Realm, in the arena of the mansion.
The orange light from the sun painted the whole arena in red.
The gentle wind blew over the land and it brought warmth to the area.
There were two people fighting against each other in the arena, it was two young girls with crossguard sword and a long dagger in their hands. They were trading attacks every second.
Angele stood beside the arena and watched the two girls fight.
Freia was wielding a crossguard sword and Orphie was using a long dagger.
Orphie was having a hard time defending against the incoming strikes and her tight white swordsman’s suit was already damaged.
Freia had no trouble winning the practice match.
“Orphie, you need to practice more. I only used a third of my true power,” Freia mocked Orphie as she performed the sword skill combo.
Orphie’s face turned red and she only blocked half of the incoming strikes.
Orphie’s belt was damaged by the sword again.
Angele clapped his hands slightly.
“Alright, that’s it. Freia, stop now.”
Freia jumped backward and pointed at Angele with her sword.
“Green, why don’t you come and help me improve my skills? If you lose the practice match against me, can you take a bath with me? Don’t run away from me this time!” Her long black ponytail was dancing in the wind and her elastic skin looked pink under the light of the setting sun. The girl was young and full of energy.
Angele was a bit speechless.
“You’re no a kid anymore and I won’t take a bath with you. Come on, take the bath and we’ll have the dinner.”
Orphie blushed as she heard the conversation. “I’ll go take the bath now.” She walked away quickly.
She already knew that Freia did not treat Angele like her father after living with her in the mansion. Freia looked at Angele like a wife would look at her husband. It was like a romantic relationship with nothing to hide.
However, Orphie was still not sure if Angele was a human being. She did not think too much about it as she was safe in the mansion.
Freia still stood on the arena after Orphie left.
Freia drew a flower in the air with the tip of her sword. “Green, hurry! Are you afraid of me?”
Angele stepped on the platform and raised his right hand, creating a silver crossguard sword.
Freia slashed forward before Angele could react. The blade drew a silver string in the air as the girl was going for his throat.
Angele hit Freia’s sword with his sword and leaned to the side. He suddenly charged forward and tried to grab Freia’s shoulder. This combo could usually win the fight for him and Freia would go have the dinner without saying anything else.
However, Freia just let Angele grab her shoulder; she blocked Angele’s sword and was still trying to hit him in the throat.
However, Angele’s sword would hit her face before she could hit him. Freia did not look at the incoming sword, it almost looked like she was trying to trade her life with Angele.
“Now you’re acting like a child.” Angele was speechless, he slightly lowered his sword and blocked Freia’s attack.
Angele’s hand was still on Freia’s right shoulder, however, Freia suddenly leaned back slightly and he could feel that he grabbed something soft.
He noticed that his hand landed on Freia’s breast after she moved back slightly.
“Well…” Angele quickly moved his hand away. It seemed like what Freia did was intentional.
The two stood in the arena and the situation was awkward.
“Green, what do you think? It’s larger than before, right?” Freia looked at Angele and asked. It seemed like she did not mind that Angele grabbed her breast.
She lived in the mansion for too long. Angele and his brother were the only two that could teach her about the things between man and woman. However, she never thought it was a big deal.
“Sometimes I grab them myself and it feels pretty good, but if I use too much strength, it’ll…” Freia started explaining.
Angele had no idea what he should say. “Come on, stop. Go have dinner now. I brought Orphie to you because I want you to have someone to play with. If you don’t listen to my words, I’ll take Orphie away and you’ll have no one to play with.”
“Fine…” Freia rolled her eyes, it seemed like she got another idea so she did not argue with Angele. She jumped off the platform and returned the sword to the weapon shelf.
