The Wizard World - Chapter 389
Chapter 389: Fear (2)
Translator: Leo Editor: Kurisu
Angele had completed several missions from the Dark Wizard Tower over the last several years and already collected a lot of points, but he only spent them on necessary things like purchasing extremely rare materials.
Vivian could not acquire those materials for him, they were sold by the Dark Wizard Tower’s members that explored the dangerous ruins.
Angele told Orphie and Freia that Eye Devil was a dangerous monster before leaving the Nightmare Realm. Although Freia found it hard to believe, she still nodded her head and agreed to what Angele just said. The girl did not witness their argument.
After everything was done, Angele took the blood essence crystal that was gifted to him by Eye Devil to the main world and absorbed its power every day. The crystal contained pure bloodline power and it could help Angele modify his body.
Dark Wizard Tower messaged him before he absorbed all the power from the crystal.
Angele calmed down and stood in front of the flower, raising his left hand. There was a ring with an eye-shaped amethyst on his left middle finger. “How many of them are here?”
Blue light flashed on the surface of the ring.
The human face glared at the ring.
“You think I don’t trust you? You don’t have to show the ring to me… There are about twenty people here and they’re all elites in this area. Alright, get in now.”
Angele smiled. “I showed you the ring because it’s the rule.” He lowered his hand. “Alright, I’ll leave now, I’ll talk to you later.”
“Sure,” the human face responded.
Angele walked past the tree, stopped by the edge of the cliff, and jumped down.
Down the cliff was an endless abyss; the only thing he could see was some thick black fog.
It was not the first time he traveled to the headquarters of the organization, but Angele still found this method inconvenient.
His body was falling down at full speed; the strong wind was blowing into his pants, sleeves, and collar. He could feel that the heat on the surface of his skin was being taken away.
The noise made by the wind was the only thing he could hear and his skin was getting wet.
The dark fog got thicker and thicker after he fell for a while—it almost completely blocked Angele’s sight.
Angele could feel that the weightless feeling was getting weaker and weaker. Several minutes later, he stood on the dark cloud and it did not feel like he was still falling anymore. He could feel the texture of the cloud with his feet—it was soft but steady.
Raising his left hand, Angele released a ray of blue light from the amethyst ring on his left middle finger.
The blue ray stood in front of him like a blue stick, surrounded by blue light dots that looked like floating flower petals.
About half a minute later, the black fog around Angele slowly disappeared.
The environment around him had changed. There were white clouds floating in the bright blue sky. He was standing in a cylinder-shaped canyon with black cliffs on both sides.
Under his feet was a rectangular blue light screen, which looked like a floating tile that was preventing him from falling.
Angele could see a long spiral staircase created by blue light bricks in front of him; the staircase looked like a blue string leading to the entrance of a black city in the sky.
There were four white waterfalls around the city, their size varied. The water came from the tall towers in the sky, while the waterfalls were surrounded by mists. The noise they made was harsh on Angele’s ears.
Angele looked down, under the translucent blue tiles, it was a white underground river. The water from the waterfalls dropped into the river and went into some tiny caves on the side.
He raised his head; there were already several people that arrived early and were climbing up the stairs.
Angele started moving as well. He stepped on the second blue light brick and made sure that it could handle his weight.
He shook his head slightly and started walking up the stairs as well.
Angele heard some noise coming from behind and turned his head around. He noticed that a ball of black smoke appeared in the air and another person landed on the light bricks after the smoke disappeared.
It was a man wearing a long black coat, with thick brown fur around his collar. The man had a handsome face and his facial features were almost perfect. His skin was smoother than a woman’s and his short red hair was waving in the gentle wind.
Also, the reversed Ω sign between the man’s brow was quite eye-catching. The sign was red and there were red electric pulses around it.
The man had a pair of red eyes and he noticed Angele as well—they quickly exchanged eye contact.
“Greetings, I’m Bismarck from the Sky Lord Palace. It must be the fate, we both like red.” There was a gentle smile on the man’s handsome face. He raised his hand and looked at Angele. For some reason, the red hair that stuck on his forehead made him even more attractive.
Angele did not want to shake the man’s hand. He started walking upstairs again. His long red hair and the long black robe flying in the wind. Angele could smell the sick smell of blood from the man named Bismarck.
Bismarck hesitated for a second and lowered his hand, it seemed like he was not ruffled.
The smell of the man almost made Angele puke; he noticed that as the man greeted him.
It was the smell of the bloodline—after he merged with the ancient bloodline and started refining the true form, his sense of the bloodlines was much keener than before. The bloodline did not only contain a man’s gene, the soul sigil of the man could also be found in it.
‘Sky Lord Palace? It’s one of the three wizard lord palaces…’ Angele had no intention to make friends with people from the wizard lord palaces. He already enraged the Lord of Shadow, if the Lord of Sky somehow got mad at him as well…
The three wizard lords hated each other, but they could easily kill a low-rank wizard like Angele.
‘I didn’t expect to see someone from the Sky Lord Palace here. I wonder how strong the Dark Wizard Tower’s elite members are…’ Angele raised his head and stared at the black city above.
The wizards that could enter this area all signed the new contract so Bismarck just simply told Angele who he was and who he was working for.
This was the headquarters of the Dark Wizard Tower, and the wizards could not leave the area without the permission of the organization; also, they could not send any messages to the people outside the headquarters.
Angele calmed down and kept stepping up the stairs. Bismarck followed behind him; it seemed like he was enjoying himself.
Two more wizards appeared on the light staircase after Bismarck. The first one was a bald female wizard that was wearing a leather armor suit that looked like a white bikini. The second one was a gray robe with the head of an eagle and the body of a human.
The woman and the eagle man did not say anything, they were just going upstairs quietly.
Angele finally reached the top of the staircase after about half an hour; it was the entrance to the black city.
The city looked like an enormous altar with stone staircases in the front and the back. The staircases led to the top level of the altar. There were black buildings on both sides of the staircases.
There were people walking on the empty grounds among the black buildings. Most of the people were wearing black crystal shoulder armor on their left shoulders, otherwise their outfits varied. Some of them were talking to each other.
However, most of them covered their faces with masks and they were looking at others carefully.
The entrance of the city was a large empty ground. A team of guards wearing black crystal armor was standing in front of the gate. All the guards had muscular bodies and their heads were covered by completely closed helmets. Angele also noticed the complicated magic engravings on the surface of their armor.
“Go to the first floor if you’re wearing one piece of crystal armor. Go to the second floor if you’re wearing two pieces of crystal armor,” the leader of the guards spoke. He was talking about the crystal blade armor that was handed to all the elite members and should only be worn on shoulders.
There were about eight wizards at the entrance and Angele was one of them. Bismarck stood beside him—it seemed like he was interested in Angele.
There was a black leather scroll in the guard’s hand. There were some words written on the scroll, but what caught people’s attention was the large mouth in the center that was full of teeth.
A male wizard stepped forward and grabbed the black leather scroll. He read the contents carefully and chanted several simple incantations, pointing at the large mouth on the scroll. A white light dot was released from his finger tip and it sank into the large mouth quickly.
“Next.” The guard took out another black leather scroll and looked at the second wizard that just stepped forward. “Ah, Sophia, long time no see.” The guard’s voice was gentle.
“It’s you. Long time no see.” The female wizard stepped forward and repeated what the last wizard just did. Another white light dot sank into the scroll’s mouth. “I haven’t seen you in years, I’ll talk to you after this is done.”
“Sure.” The guard nodded. His voice was neutral. Angele was not sure if it was a woman or a man.
The wizards signed the contract one by one and Angele’s turn had come.
He grabbed the black leather scroll and checked the contents. There was no trap or secret pattern; the words explained the rules clearly. It seemed like the masters of the Dark Wizard Tower were not trying to trick them.
Angele did what the others did and released a white light dot.
He sealed the scroll and started walking to the empty ground on the left of the first floor. There should be someone else waiting for him there.
“So it’s Green. It’s the name on your contract. I saw it.” Bismarck’s voice came from behind.
Angele’s expression turned cold, he stopped and looked back.
Bismarck raised his right index finger, a glowing, red butterfly on his fingertip swinging its wings. “Well, it’s an accident.”
“Why did you peek at my contract?” Angele spoke in a cold tone.
Bismarck smiled and stared Angele in the eyes calmly. He suddenly winked at Angele.
‘Ugh…’ Angele could feel the goose bumps rising on his skin.
‘Is this guy trying to seduce me?’
He wanted to puke again.
Bismarck was still winking at him and it was making Angele uncomfortable.
‘Dumb*ss…’ The man’s behavior was giving him chills. Bismarck was more horrifying than the monsters on Eye Devil’s party at the moment.
Angele tightened his collar as he suddenly felt cold. Angele turned around and walked to the servant that was waiting for him in the front quickly.
