A bitter smile appeared on the man’s face. “It seems like they have the same opinion…” He turned around, turned into a green vortex, and disappeared before finishing his words.
The four white robes that were severely injured were still lying on the ground. They wanted to sacrifice themselves for Eugene, but the situation had already gotten out of their control.
The wizards at the scene decided to ignore the injured white robes. It seemed like they all heard Eugene’s last request.
The female leader of the white robes had a pale face and was coughing blood; the black statue in her hand was covered with cracks. The statue was her final resort, however, it was damaged by Eugene’s energy particles accidentally, and she had no way to fight back due to the injury.
Angele slowly stood up in front of the crystal orb as he looked at the damaged land. He was speechless.
“Ys Reagan… why did you help the enemy escape? Is it really worth it to give up the chance of becoming an elder?” Angele felt a bit depressed.
Angele never expected something like this to happen. He thought that a wizard like Ys Reagan would not make such an unwise decision and they all left the effective range of the crystal orb.
Angele would have to wait for Victoria’s report if he wanted to know the result of the battle. However, he was certain that Victoria had already succeeded just by the look of Eugene.
It was nearly impossible for Eugene to survive.
The weak point of the wizards from the Shadow Palace was at their abdomen due to the advanced meditation technique they practiced. The weak point was the essence of their lives—it was known as core.
The core was where the shadow wizards stored their energy particles. In the energy cycling system, the core was like the heart of a human body, and the shadow wizards would replace their hearts with cores so they could send the energy particles into their blood veins—their bodies would become perfect carriers of the energy particles.
That was how the shadow wizards hid in the shadows. Other wizards had similar techniques; however, they needed a lot more effort to accomplish that when compared to the shadow wizards.
Normal wizards could not turn their bodies into elemental forms at earlier ranks unless they had special Talent Skills. Angele acquired the ability after he advanced to rank 3; however, the members of the Shadow Palace could acquire the ability at rank 1.
For that reason, the wizards of the Shadow Palace had a higher chance to survive intense battles than other wizards, so the Shadow Palace barely lost any of its main force after all those years.
However, if a shadow wizard’s core was destroyed, he would either die or lose the ability to fight. Destroying the core of a shadow wizard was the same as destroying the brain of a normal wizard.
Angele stood in the bedroom and organized the intel he collected.
He slowly calmed down and decided not to think too much about the situation.
‘Anyways, the situation is out of my control. I’ll have to rely on Prince Panko and Victoria.’ He raised his left hand and activated a purple communication rune. It was Turin—his rune was simple, it was just his name that was written in Metia.
“What’s the matter?” Angele responded to Turin’s call right away.
“Leader, it’s pretty much settled and people are already joining us. However, there’s an unexpected situation here…” Turin was speaking in a serious tone, which was quite rare.
“Yes, someone is doing the same thing as us, also, they’ve already succeeded,” Turin responded in a deep tone.
“Huh?” Angele was a bit surprised. “Who’re they?”
“They call themselves the Morning Stars, I assume it’s a name of an organization. They’ve already collected most of the wanted criminals of this land and some of the wanted criminals from the underground world. Also, the leader of their organization wants to talk to you face to face. What do you say?”
“A face-to-face conversation, huh? Did they tell you what they want? You know we don’t really need their assistance, right? Our organizations are at different levels. They’re not strong enough to engage in negotiations with us,” Angele replied.
“They have the Chaos Contract and they want you to sign it.” Turin emphasized on the word “you” when responding.
“Chaos Contract? Where did you find something like this…? It seems like I underestimated them…” Angele narrowed his eyes, he had already understood the Morning Stars’ intention.
First, the organization was familiar with Dark Wizard Tower’s structure and it seemed like they knew that Angele was not strong enough to control the wizards that were supposed to work for him. Dark Wizard Tower was a strong organization, however, Angele was still a weak wizard.
They knew that Angele would not feel happy if Angele had to approach them by himself; also, they had the Chaos Contract, a contract from the ancient era.
Whoever broke the rule of the Chaos Contract would be punished by a mysterious force and thrown into the horrifying Chaos Realm.
A normal creature would be destroyed by the chaotic time and space in the Chaos Realm instantly right after it was thrown into the realm. The creatures with strong power and eternal life might still encounter the living beings that were more powerful than them. They would be all consumed sooner or later.
Angele and the Morning Stars did not have the power to survive in the Chaos Realm, so the Chaos Contract was perfect for such occasion; it seemed like Morning Stars really wanted to cooperate with Angele. That was the reason why they asked Turin to contact him and Turin probably already noticed that Morning Stars was a strong organization.
“Did they tell you the location of the meeting?” Angele wondered.
“By the end of the White Stone Valley, I had an agreement with them,” Turin responded immediately; for some reason, it sounded like he was finally speaking to Angele in a respectful way.
“In a week.”
Angele tapped on the crystal orb. “I’ll be there on time.”
The image in the crystal orb disappeared.
Three days later.
In the morning…
In a narrow valley that was full of white stones, white mist permeated the air and lowered the visibility in the area.
In the valley, two black shadows were jumping over the white stones and advancing quietly like ghosts.
The valley was deadly silent, there was no bird or insect making any noise.
One black shadow was following the other and they stopped by the end of the valley, landing on an enormous white stone.
The black shadow in the front had long red hair that almost reached his waist; the man following him had short red hair with a face that was pretty like a woman.
“Turin, this is the location you talked about?” Angele questioned in a deep tone.
“Yes, leader, this is the location according to the message.”
Angele glanced around, the mist-covered valley was silent, and it felt like he was standing in a place that was from a fairy tale.
Suddenly, blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
“Why don’t you reveal yourselves if you’re already here? I thought you were the ones who wanted to negotiate.” He buffed his voice using energy particles.
Angele’s voice echoed in the valley for several minutes before it disappeared.
“Sorry, my bad.”
A gender-neutral voice came from below.
“I just finished building this place and you arrived when I was finishing the preparation. Please come in so we can talk.” The voice was gentle, but it did not sound like it was from a woman.
Angele’s brow furrowed, he jumped down and landed on the ground as he blinked his eyes.
Turin jumped down as well, they walked to the mountain by the end of the valley.
The mist started disappearing as they got closer to the mountain.
They finally had a clear view of the place. The front of the mountain was purple.
The mountain was supposed to be white, but countless purple flowers were climbing up the hard surface of the mountain.
The flowers had no green leaves nor vines. The only thing Angele could see were the purple petals. The pure purple made the place a bit mysterious.
The only things on the surface of the mountain were the flowers; the ground was also covered with the purple petals.
There was a stone staircase leading to a closed arched gate in the front.
Angele and Turin stepped forward.
The gate opened by itself, raveling a deep purple tunnel.
“Enter, please,” the gentle voice spoke again.
Angele scrunched his eyebrows as he entered the tunnel.
The walls of the tunnel looked just like the surface of the mountain and there was a tiny room by the end of the tunnel.
Angele walked in the tunnel, his nose filled by the fragrance of the flowers. The flowers on the walls almost contacted his long robe. Strangely, he did not see any bees around despite an intense floral fragrance in the tunnel.
He grabbed a petal—it was cold and wet.
He dropped it and walked to the room.
Entering the room, he noticed that the walls were still covered with the purple flowers, and there was a red wooden table at the center of the room. The wooden table fitted the room perfectly.
Also, there was a golden bird cage on the table, and inside the cage, there was a dark-gold bird that was staring at Angele quietly.
The bird cage was made with pure gold, it was shiny, luxurious, and decorated with floral patterns that looked like magic runes. It felt like the cage was from a royal family.
The bird in the cage was cute and tiny, it looked like a normal sparrow; the only difference lay in its dark-gold feathers.
“Nice to meet you, Leader Green.” The gentle voice was from the bird. “Let me introduce myself first, you can call me Prince Fairy Dragon.”
Angele narrowed his eyes and stared at the bird quietly.
