“Master, be careful. They are probably an elite team of the Watchers, the strongest army of the Elemental Hand.” The eagle recognized the team down there right away. “The weakest soldier in the team is a rank 3 apprentice!”
“Don’t worry.” The woman nodded and they communicated using energy particles as the arrows approached.
After the noise, a translucent black energy barrier appeared under the woman and the eagle.
Numerous arrows landed on the energy barrier and it sounded like something exploded. The special arrows could explode at any time in the air and deal over 30 degrees of damage per arrow. If all the arrows hit one target, the total damage would be terrifying.
However, the translucent energy barrier blocked the arrows easily.
“Die!” The woman pointed down with her trident and the energy barrier vibrated slightly.
A black lightning was released from the energy barrier; it was going for the leader of the team.
The lightning twisted and landed on its target.
The whole forest was shaking and a large hole with a diameter of more than ten meters appeared on the original location the Watchers were standing at. Black crystals filled up the hole.
The Watchers dodged the lightning. The whole team was teleported to the left of the hole using some special technique and they were staring at the sky.
The high-pitched alarm noise echoed in the air and birds flew out of the forest quickly. They swung their wings and tried to leave the area as fast as possible.
“Huh? They dodged my strike.” The woman in the air sounded surprised. “Whatever, the guy in the mansion is who I want. Let’s go, Kin, we should retreat right away after eliminating him.”
“Yes, master.” The eagle nodded and leaned to the side so the woman could sit on its back.
The woman and the eagle disappeared from the sky.
Intense footsteps of the soldiers appeared in different areas of the forest due to the alarm.
A red energy barrier slowly surrounded the mansion by the river—the whole mansion was under the protection.
“Protect the master!”
“Stay in your formation! Don’t attack our own people by accident!”
“Someone, go guard the exit!”
“Kill all the invaders!”
People were yelling around the mansion and teams of Watchers started setting up the defensive formation around the mansion.
The maids at the balcony and the garden were looking around anxiously.
Angele sat in a chair at an open balcony on the second floor quietly, looking confused.
“Seriously? Someone is trying to kill me during the negotiations? Are they trying to restart the war? Or maybe someone else is going after me?”
Suddenly, the eye-shaped ring on Angele’s left hand was surrounded by a blue glow. The amethyst turned from purple to sky blue quickly and a familiar voice echoed in Angele’s brain.
“A rank 4 wizard is approaching. Green, what do you want to do? Do you want to just retreat for now?”
Angele rubbed the metal scars on his face and he was about to respond.
A ray of black light slashed through the air and traveled toward his throat at full speed.
‘How’s that even possible?! The barrier around the mansion is not damaged at all! I didn’t detect any enemy outside! Also, Zero didn’t warn me about the incoming attack! Where is the enemy?’ Angele’s expression changed and he quickly stepped back to dodge the attack.
The wall on the right of Angele was cut open. A maid was almost hit by the attack—her face turned pale as she fell to the floor, and it seemed like she peed herself.
Angele successfully dodged the strike but he was blown away by the impact and his throat ached. He was sent flying at the wall like a bullet.
The wall cracked and fell to the floor. The dust that was blown to the air blurred everything in his sight.
The woman in black armor appeared on the balcony, glancing around the room with a blank expression on the face.
“You killed my sister, Terry, and I’ll cut your head off so I can use your head to comfort my sister’s soul…” the woman spoke in a light tone and she waved her hand again.
Her trident melted, turned into a ball of black liquid, and splashed at the dust.
Angele lowered his body in the dust with his hands on the floor and glared at the woman.
‘Terry? The one I killed at the Abyss Canyon…’ The high attributes from the buff of the true form had been greatly decreased by the frost damage and it almost felt like his physical body was not strengthened by the buff at all. Although Angele was a rank 3 wizard, he was slightly weaker than before.
He rubbed the injured throat and thought, ‘I should activate my Legacy Magic Circle set now…’ Angele pulled a large piece of silver metal from the floor, blocking the incoming black liquid.
Three metal scars appeared on Angele’s body, they kept expanding and turned into a mysterious flower pattern within seconds.
Angele kept stepping back, the silver metal piece was melted by the black liquid and a large hole was created in its center.
The floor was covered with cracks and silver metal strings filled up those cracks as Angele stepped back. The metal strings were twisting and they were coated with a strange glow.
“That’s all you can do?” The woman stood there and watched Angele’s preparations. “That’s the talent ability you used to kill Terry?”
“Who’re you?” Angele questioned in a deep tone. He noticed that it seemed like the woman was stronger than an average rank 4 wizard.
“Who am I?” The woman sneered. “This will be the hardest battle you’ve ever fought.”
A silver metal flow created by the strings hit the woman from the back.
Countless metal cylinders were approaching the woman, they all had a diameter of five to six meters, and they were attacking the woman one after one.
The whole mansion was destroyed.
Angele’s face was covered with the silver patterns and there were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
“20%… 20% of my magic circle set’s power!” he muttered. “Even if you’re a rank 4 wizard…”
*BAM BAM BAM*
A black metal cylinder that was several meters wide suddenly spurted out of the ground; it was followed by countless sharp metal cylinders that were striking into the sky.
Angele opened his arms and four lava balls slowly appeared in front his body. The four lava balls gathered together and turned into a humongous fireball that was about two meters tall; there was golden lava bubbling inside the ball.
“Die!” Angele pointed at the woman.
The fireball flew toward the woman that was being devoured by the metal cylinders and the ground was shaking.
Angele had no time to check the result, he turned around and disappeared into the flames.
With the Metal Mastery and the Legacy Magic Circle Set, Angele doubted if he could win a fight against the woman without the true form, so the best he could do was to retreat.
Suddenly, a loud noise came from the center of the metal cylinders.
All the metal cylinders were blown away and quickly disappeared into the air, revealing the woman inside. Her black armor was not damaged at all.
“Trying to run?” She raised her right hand, the air twisted and she grabbed a large ball of red flame as the black light flashed.
She destroyed the flames. The rest of the flames reformed Angele’s body and he rolled several times on the ground.
Angele stood up as his face turned pale. He released several red runes using his right hand without any hesitation and took out a small bottle from the pouch with his left hand. He broke the bottle quickly.
A large black stone elemental appeared on the ground, a storm elemental that was surrounded by electric pulses appeared in the wind, and a fire elemental that was created by lava drops and flames landed in front of Angele. Several golden runes appeared in the air and started rotating. It looked like they were about to form an unknown rune circle.
Angele’s situation was getting worse, countless metal flowers appeared under his feet and turned into a large silver rune circle.
Red, green, and blue energy barriers appeared in front of Angele, they were created by some one-time enchanted items. Although those items were expensive, they could be activated without the mentality.
Angele activated most of the one-time enchanted items he carried using the pouch.
The woman did not do anything, she just stood there and waited for Angele to finish his preparation.
Angele finally stopped. “Are you sure you want to kill me?” His voice was hoarse and he did everything he could. He used all his final resorts that could increase attack and defensive abilities, however, he was not sure if his body could handle it.
“You killed my sister. Did you ask yourself that question when you were about to do that?” the woman questioned.
Angele narrowed his eyes. He thought he left no traces behind but it seemed like this female wizard still tracked him down. It was deadly silent around the mansion. The guards all fell asleep on the ground for some reason.
It was probably the power of the liquefied black trident. That was the best chance she had.
“Farewell…” A black rune suddenly glowed between the woman’s eyebrows.
An incredible mentality wave landed on Angele’s body.
*BAM BAM BAM BAM*
The energy barriers that Angele set up started disappearing one by one.
The mentality wave reduced Angele’s mentality and made him anxious. The wave destroyed everything that he prepared.
Angele’s head ached, blood was spurting out of his eyes, nose, and ears.
“The pure power of a rank 4 wizard’s mentality wave… That’s way too strong…” Angele finally understood that a high-rank wizard could easily destroy a wizard that was one rank below.
The woman was treating Angele like a worthless rat. The only thing she needed to do was release her mentality wave.
“Sadly, my mentality wave is just pure power. Again, farewell…” The black glow between her brow shined again.
Angele felt like he was hit by a heavy hammer in the head.
The final barrier that was created by the crystal scorpion was destroyed and the twisting force field quickly approached Angele’s body.
The red scorpion pattern glowed between his eyebrows.
“Who’s trying to hurt my son?! How dare you!” A voice from an enraged mother echoed in the sky.
Countless black clouds boiled in the sky and turned into an enormous vortex.
A large red palm reached out of the vortex and moved toward the woman.
