“I guess that’s where the summoning spells come from.” Angele heard the wizards created the summoning potion after studying their Talent Skills.
He stood in the reading room and raised his right hand.
Red flame appeared in the center of his right palm. A tiny man with red wings that was surrounded by flames slowly appeared and landed on Angele’s hand.
It was a faceless man glowing in red. He bowed to Angele politely.
“Different people will create fire elementals at different levels. It probably depends on how much energy I can put out.” Angele stared at the tiny fire man on his palm.
He threw the man into the air. The fire man rotated around Angele and landed on his right shoulder, kicking his legs slightly. The man looked like a cute and energetic fairy.
“Okay, let me test the Element Travel…” Angele turned around.
His sight was filled up with orange flames and he could feel the heat around his body. Seconds later, the flames around him disappeared.
Angele teleported to the training arena in the mansion and the fire elemental had disappeared from his shoulder.
The morning sunlight brushed over his body, it was cold but gentle. The arena was empty, Angele was the only one here.
He stood in the center of the arena and looked at the reading room that was on the second floor of the main building.
The windows were closed tightly and none of the doors was open at the entrances.
“A teleportation skill that won’t be stopped by walls or solid objects? Interesting.” Angele remembered the days he was jealous of the wizards who could turn their bodies into pure energy. It was a convenient ability, but he did not know that he could do something similar to them without turning his physical body into the energy form.
Also, it was a special skill from the Molten Core River, and the other advanced meditation techniques might have something similar but relying on different energy particles.
He did some quick tests on the Element Travel and the Fire Elemental.
Both skills could be casted instantly and the maximum distance for the Element Travel was around 400 meters. He could only travel through the space that was not completely sealed, like a room with a tiny gap around the door; also, it would take him around two seconds to complete the teleportation.
The Fire Elemental was simple, it was just summoning one elemental. With full power support, he could summon a fire giant that had a height of three meters and the power level of a rank 1 wizard. The fire giant surrounded by a burning aura had an ability called Burning Hand.
Angele started practicing the later stage of the Molten Core River after checking the new abilities. However, the mentality training technique of the Molten Core River’s fifth stage would no longer increase his mentality.
Angele knew that he had reached his soul limitation due to his below-average talent level. A normal wizard would need at least 100 years to reach his position but he found several shortcuts during the progress.
Also, the only purpose of practicing the Molten Core River was to cover the fact that he was walking the ancient wizard’s path.
Angele decided to focus on Erin’s Funeral Oration in the future—it was a complete sacred book that would aid him greatly. Although most of the techniques were not suitable for him, the record about the true form was good enough. Also, the technique could help him increase other attributes.
He wanted to improve himself using the Erin’s Funeral Oration and it seemed like the funeral oration would push the Molten Core River to the next stage.
Angele spent a whole morning making his future plans.
Freia just woke up as Angele left the arena. The girl was blushing slightly, it seemed like the letter from her brother made her sleep well.
“Green, you didn’t open the door when I brought you dinner last night!” Freia’s started blaming Angele as they met.
“I probably didn’t hear, my bad. I was doing an important research.” Angele had an apologetic smile on face. “Ah, right, what did Frey write to you?”
“Nothing important.” A smile appeared on Freia’s face. “It’s still early, are you leaving, Green? When will you be back?”
Angele checked the time using the biochip.
“Yeah, I’ll be back in a few days, sorry.” He rubbed Freia’s hair. “I really don’t want to leave you here alone but I have to.”
“I’m not alone, I have Orphie with me.” It seemed like Freia was not disappointed.
‘Sadly…’ Angele sighed in his mind. Freia had no talent to become a formal wizard. It seemed like human beings in this realm were not able to extend their life expectancy, they would die in 100 years no matter who they were and what they did.
“Alright, you can leave now, Green.” Freia chuckled. “I’ll go and take care of my sunflowers in the garden.”
“Sunflowers…” Angele remained calm. Freia believed the lie he told and thought she would be able to explore this world alone one day.
However, Freia would pass away before those flowers blossomed.
Angele turned around and walked into the hallway after Freia left. His body slowly turned into red flames and disappeared into the air.
The main world. In the reading room.
It was noon but the dark clouds covered the sky. There were thunderclaps echoing and white lightning brightening up the room.
The thunder rumbled again after the lightning.
A man in black slowly appeared in the reading room. It was Angele; he took off the hood, revealing his average-looking face. The man just came back from the Nightmare Realm.
‘Maybe there are other realm travelers just like him but they don’t have the accurate coordinate like I do. I shall keep my coordinate as a secret.’ Angele arranged his long robe and opened the door.
A maid in a white dress was walking down the stairs with a candle stand in hand. She quickly turned her head around after hearing the noise made by the closing door.
“Master, finally! Master Lyn is looking for you. It’s something urgent.”
“Lyn?” Angele nodded. “Alright, I’ll talk to her.”
“Yes, master.” The maid walked down the stairs quickly and left.
Angele stood in the hallway of the second floor and raised his left hand. There was a glowing red rune flashing on his nail.
He tapped on the nail slightly and Lyn’s voice echoed in his ears.
‘Master, the negotiations ended and they reached an agreement which still requires the representatives’ signatures. Master Vivian will be back in ten years if everything goes as planned.’
A smile appeared on Angele’s face. ‘It’s good news to me. I just found the sacred book and I need time to practice. Maybe my true form will reach the power level of a rank 4 wizard by that time and I’ll be able to use my Legacy Magic Circle Set,’ Angele thought. He noticed that there were several other messages.
He stayed in the Nightmare Realm for too long and knew it would be like this.
Angele tapped on the other nails.
The messages echoed in his ears one by one. They were sent by the Count and wizards like Hikari and Reyline. One thing caught Angele’s attention—there were several messages from the Human Resource Department of the Mermaid’s Song.
The messages were from a rank 2 male wizard who worked for him earlier.
“Master, please respond if you receive the message. The department needs your help.”
“Master Green, we found an underground tomb in the city and it looks like an ancient ruin. A professor and his students decided to explore the ruin with several wizards that were sent by our department. However, something unfortunate happened.”
“Our wizards, the professor, and his students are missing. The negotiations just ended and the incident has already become a problem for the organization. Someone will be asking questions soon. Please help us.”
Angele checked the time of the last message. It was sent two days ago.
“If the person is sent by the headquarters, it’ll take him five days to arrive. I have enough time.” Angele did not want to disappoint the organization. Although Angele was the only son of Vivian, he did not want to bring too much trouble to her.
“Someone!” Angele clapped his hands.
Two maids walked upstairs quickly. “Yes, master.”
“Ask the workers to prepare the eagle for me. I need to go to the Mermaid’s Song.” Angele wiped the dust off his robe and walked down the stairs.
The two maids ran down the stairs and walked to the parking area with the flying mount resting there.
Minutes later, a red dot appeared in the sky above the Ness River.
A man in black was sitting on an enormous red eagle; they were traveling at full speed.
White lightning was flashing among the boiling dark clouds as thunder rumbled.
Angele lowered his body on the eagle’s back and stared forward. It felt like the dark clouds were only ten meters above his head and a lightning could strike him anytime.
It almost looked like that the dark sky could fall down and destroy everything on this land.
The heavy wind brushed over Angele’s face and his long wet hair was blown into the air.
A blue-whiteish lightning flashed in the sky and it was about to hit Angele’s head.
“Is-a-lan!” Angele was prepared, he shouted and brandished his clenched hand forward.
Flames exploded on the center of his palm, turning into a large fireball, blocking the strike.
The fireball had a diameter of ten meters and it was covered with a bright glow.
The fireball and the lightning exploded, turning into a large light plate that was expanding slowly.
The upper side of the plate was blue and the bottom side was red. The light plate stood out in the dark sky.
Angele tightened his legs and the eagle increased his speed again. They quickly passed by the plate.
He heard the thunder rumbling from the behind.
After dodging the lightning, Angele’s face turned pale, and he decided to lower the altitude.
After about two hours of flying, a large city with white light dots flashing around it appeared in the sea of dark forest.
The city looked like a machine among the trees from the far side, its gears created by the moving people and carriages.
Angele lowered the altitude again and moved toward the city with the eagle.
The strong wind was still brushing over his face. The city was getting closer and closer. It turned from a tiny dot to the size of a car wheel and the parking lot was getting clear in Angele’s sight.
