Strong wind was blowing.
Eugene was standing in the middle of the muddy area and there were four severely injured white robes behind her.
The white robes were helping each other get up; they were worried about the situation. They were surrounded by three different forces and had no chance to escape.
“Eugene, long time no see.” Rays of golden light slowly turned into gray robes in front of Eugene’s team—there were about ten of them.
The leader was a man with black hair and a white eyepatch on the left eye. He had a slim body and there was a cold expression on his face; also, his shiny golden brow was quite eye-catching.
The gray robes were all wearing dark gold badges on the right side of their chests. The badge looked like a circling golden river.
“Ys Reagan of Golden River…” Eugene’s pupils retracted. “It has been a while. You’re stronger than before.”
“I’ll thank you for that.” The one-eyed man Ys Reagan smiled. “I waited years for this moment. It’s time to make you pay for what you did to me. How can I defeat you if I’m not strong enough?”
A green vortex appeared behind Reagan and slowly turned into a woman in a green robe as he finished his words.
“Eugene, just give up.” The woman in green gave Eugene a cold glare. “You might have a chance if it’s just us, but I think you already know that this is a battle you can’t win.”
Two groups of people appeared behind Eugene—three black robes and a red shadow.
The red shadow caught everyone’s eyes. Red light flashed in the air as the shadow approached and the land around the people was illuminated by the light.
“Ha! I didn’t expect to see you here. I was just passing by.” A strange voice came from the center of the red light.
“Victoria? What a coincidence. We’re just passing by as well. When was the last time that we met?” The leader of the black robes had red hair and there was a gentle smile on the man’s face.
Eugene remained calm, but the white robes behind her were terrified.
“Prince Panko… and Victoria…” The female white robe covered her mouth. “No! Master Eugene shall not be killed here! Everyone! We must help master Eugene retreat even if we have to sacrifice our lives and souls!” She sent the word using energy particles.
The white robes nodded with determination in their eyes.
“Eugene, today is the day that the legendary Abyss Slayer becomes the history.” A satisfied smile appeared on Ys Reagan’s face.
Eugene held the black trident tight in hand and glanced at her enemies calmly.
“Cut the crap. We shall settle our old grudge today!”
Intense black light surrounded her body as she charged forward with the trident. The tips of the trident turned into black smoke, moving toward Ys Reagan and the woman in a green robe. However, the black smoke separated halfway in the air and surrounded Ys Reagan.
She was just going after Ys Reagan.
“She’s not stupid.” Victoria and Prince Panko agreed with Eugene’s action. They were all strong wizards and they knew what Eugene was trying to do.
Ys Reagan was the strongest Soul Evocator in Elemental Hand and he would not let others get in the way of his revenge after hearing what Eugene said. It was a battle between Ys Reagan and Eugene, so Victoria and Prince Panko had to wait until they were finished. They needed to show their respect for the decision made by other strong wizards.
Eugene started the battle first, so the others would have to wait—that was the only way that she could survive.
Eugene turned herself into black smoke and crashed into the golden rays that were formed by Reagan’s body.
The black smoke and the golden rays traded hits in the air. Black smoke and golden light dots would splash every time they came in contact. Several minutes later, Eugene turned into a black eagle and Reagan turned into a golden roc.
The two aggressive birds kept trading strikes in the air and their enormous bodies covered the sky. Visible shock waves would appear in the sky every time they attacked each other. The wizards on the ground could feel their ears ringing.
The wizards on the ground were all elites. A mortal would not last two seconds when hit by the shock waves—his body would explode like a tomato.
In the ruins under the volcano.
Angele watched the intense battle through the crystal orb.
“It’s a fight between pure energy. Victoria, do what you need to do now. Also, remember, keep her alive and break her mentality crystal if you can.”
“But the members of the Golden River might go after me if—” Victoria responded through the crystal orb quickly.
“Do it now! I want to know how strong the Soul Evocator of Golden River is anyways. If he doesn’t understand the situation, injure him and throw him to the side. You can do that with Prince Panko’s team, right?” Angele interrupted.
“Leader, are you trying to tell me that…” Victoria was not angry because he was interrupted before he could finish his words. He asked the question because he suddenly remembered something.
“Yeah, you’re right, so you’d better hurry!” Angele advised. He was not sure if Shadow Lord had already noticed the situation, so he wanted to end the battle as soon as possible.
“For sure, you won’t be disappointed.” Victoria chuckled and stopped talking.
Angele calmed down, lowered his head, and looked at the eye-shaped amethyst ring on his hand.
The two birds attacked each other again.
The earth and the mountains were shaking. Fissures appeared on the ground and the clouds in the sky were broken into pieces. A strong vortex surrounded the black shadow and the golden shadow. Everything around them was drawn into the vortex.
The three groups of wizards were not moving an inch in the strong wind, they raised their heads and watched the battle quietly.
The black eagle rotated and increased its altitude. The eagle then released a black lightning in the sky—it was flying to the roc like an arrow.
The roc opened its wings and released countless golden feathers that also looked like arrows.
The eagle and the roc were just energy forms created by Eugene and Reagan’s spells. They were chanting incantations and casting spells in the two birds’ bodies. Those spells controlled the movements of the eagle and the roc.
The lightning and the feathers exploded at the same time, turning into a black energy vortex.
The black eagle flew down after releasing the lightning and its eyes started glowing as black electric pulses surrounded its body.
The eagle looked like a humongous black arrow that was charging to the roc that was standing on the ground.
The golden roc opened its wings again and its body was surrounded by a golden glow.
The roc turned into a golden arrow and charged toward the black arrow.
The two arrows were getting closer and closer.
The two wizards reached their full momentum and it seemed like they used their strongest spells. However, the size of the roc had shrunk after they traded many strikes. The black eagle had twice the size of the roc at the moment. It seemed like Ys Reagan was weaker than Eugene.
A translucent wave appeared in the sky. The wave expanded and disappeared into the air several seconds later.
In the center of the explosion, Ys Reagan was happy with the result. He stabbed his hand into Eugene’s chest and they were standing extremely close to each other.
“I thought you were going to…” Reagan’s expression froze before he finished the word.
He lowered his head and looked at Eugene’s abdomen. Eugene’s black armor was penetrated and a bloody hole appeared. The edge of the wound was surrounded by a red glow.
A smile appeared on Eugene’s face.
“Help me… Protect them…” She tried to speak calmly but blood kept spurting out of her mouth.
“No!” Ys Reagan pulled his hand out of Eugene’s body and shouted. “How dare you?!” He looked at Prince Panko and Victoria as his eyes turned red.
A triangular golden rune appeared behind Ys Reagan and he was about to charge forward.
Eugene grabbed his right hand.
“Help… me…!” Eugene could barely move and Reagan was supporting her body. She stared at Reagan in the eyes, she could barely talk due to the blood in her mouth.
Ys Reagan stopped and lowered his head again.
“Our battle shall not end like this!” Suddenly, he picked Eugene up, turned into a golden shadow, and escaped.
“Damn it! Chase them down!” Victoria thought that no one noticed that he backstabbed Eugene and did not expect Ys Reagan to betray the organization just because of pride. Victoria hated people like Ys Reagan.
Prince Panko was thinking the same. He waved his hands and sunk into the ground with the two black robes behind him.
Members of the Golden River looked at each other for several seconds, they finally understood the situation and rushed forward.
The only one left in the area was the woman in a green robe. She sighed as she watched Ys Reagan disappear into the forest.
“He’s done… Damn.” She sighed again.
A green vortex slowly landed beside the woman, turning into a handsome man in a green robe.
“Yeah… Eugene’s core was in her stomach and he wasn’t the one who destroyed it. I think his hatred toward the woman has changed…”
The woman nodded. “He’s too proud and will do anything to protect his pride, including betraying the organization. Ys Reagan has been trying to kill Eugene for over 100 years. He’ll either solve the problem or drop into the abyss this time.”
“You’ll have a higher chance to become an elder if he leaves,” the man spoke in a light tone.
The woman hesitated.
“I prefer a fair battle against him during the election! I never wanted something like this to happen!” She turned around, turned into a green vortex, and started returning to the headquarters of the Elemental Hand.
