“Prince Evil Dragon?” Angele was a bit surprised. “So, this is not your real form. Are you a neutral dragon or a terror dragon?
He thought carefully before asking the question. The neutral dragons were strong dragons that all lived for more than ten thousand years; however, none of them worked for a certain organization or lord, and Angele was not sure if there were neutral dragons in this world.
The terror dragons were a new group of dragons that were aggressive but relatively weak, and it was impossible for them to win a fight against the neutral dragons.
The bird in the gold cage jumped and changed its position.
“Why does it matter? A neutral dragon, a terror dragon, or even a fake dragon. This is not a problem to our future cooperation.”
“That’s your thought, huh?” Angele raised his hand and created two red chairs behind him.
The chairs were formed by pure flames and covered with translucent barriers that were stopping the heat from leaking.
Turin and Angele sat down on the chairs, facing the gold cage.
Angele rubbed the purple eye-shaped ring on his hand and spoke in a light tone, “Alright then, what’s the purpose of this meeting? What do you want from us?”
“Our purpose is simple. We Morning Stars are seeking the protection of the area leader so we can have a safe place in the incoming era. Based on the look of your situation, it’ll be beneficial to you if you choose to work with us,” Prince Evil Dragon spoke in a calm tone. “Also, I don’t think your ultimate goal is related to what you’re doing right now.”
Angele narrowed his eyes. Prince Evil Dragon was right, he needed to get rid of the frost damage, recover his power, and keep improving.
His position in the area and the servants he had were all from the Dark Wizard Tower. Angele was certain that his own power was the most important thing for his future.
Angele knew that point well and he knew that he needed to get rid of the frost damage as soon as possible. He learned that the leader of the Morning Stars was called Evil Dragon and he wanted to see if the dragon could give him some information of the Dark Mother Tree or a method to handle the frost damage.
“Do you know how to handle my situation?” Angele questioned in a deep voice; he was expecting a positive answer.
“I don’t,” Prince Evil Dragon responded without any hesitation. “However, I know that there’s still one eye-gouging dragon living in this world.”
Angele narrowed his eyes. His heart was racing, he could barely hide the excitement in his eyes.
“However, you must pay a price for that,” Prince Evil Dragon continued. “Our organization will work for you, however, you can’t order us to do anything. Just promise us that you won’t attack us in the future. That’s the main reason we approached you.” Prince Evil Dragon started negotiating.” Also, please make sure that you remove any intel that is related to us from your intel center. We don’t want to become a target of Dark Wizard Tower.”
“You know that I’m just an area leader, right? Wizards are not dumb.” Angele sneered. “It seems like you have a big plan in mind…”
“We’re different. There’s more than one living being in my body. Sometimes, I do admire people like you. I want to pursue my own goal if possible, however, I’ve already lost the chance.” Prince Evil Dragon sighed, he sounded a bit depressed.
He stopped for a second and raised his left wing.
“Samrak, reveal yourself now.”
Suddenly, a large black shadow appeared behind the gold cage. The black shadow was wearing a long robe with a hood on the head, releasing a strong and mysterious mentality wave.
“Leader Green, our background is much stronger than you think. However, the world is about to change, and weak beings will be replaced by strong beings. What I need to do is to increase our chance of winning. Also, we can offer you two something else when we sign the Chaos Contract.”
He lowered his wing, turned his head around, and talked to the black shadow.
“As you wish,” the black shadow responded in a low voice. The shadow suddenly pulled his robe down.
It almost looked like the shadow was pulling down a zipper and his naked body was revealed.
The man had a strangely smooth body with no hair at all.
The man drew a silver scimitar from his waist and slashed his own chest open. His actions surprised Angele and Turin.
A large gash appeared on the man’s body and white light was released from the terrifying wound.
“Bow to the destiny, the truth will now be displayed in front of your eyes…” The shadow chanted the incantation in a slow but deep tone.
Suddenly, a light screen was created by the light from the black shadow’s wound. Angele saw a humongous black floating city appearing over an endless sea of vibrant trees.
“The Shadow Palace…” Turin sent the message to Angele through energy particles.
Angele nodded slightly to show that he already knew the information as he stared at the scene.
The scene quickly zoomed in and located a tall castle in the center of the sky city.
A man with red hair in a white robe was standing by a window of the castle quietly, overlooking the far side. Angele was familiar with the male wizard’s face.
‘This man… He looks exactly like the man I met before during the Dark Wizard Tower’s competition…’ He saw the U-shaped rune between the man’s brow and recognized him right away.
“I’ve found all the people who were visited by the Guardians recently and he’s one of them.” Prince Evil Dragon sent his voice through energy particles. “His name is Bismarck, son of a random elder from the Shadow Palace, but he was still visited by the Guardians.”
“Huh? Why’re the Guardians interested in this guy? He’s a normal wizard at rank 3, right? He’s not even a wizard of dawn,” Angele wondered.
“There was an unstable dimension wave by the ruin of the Blue Nine-Tails Flower Castle at the north of the Shadow Palace about three days ago. Bismarck’s teacher joined the investigation team and visited the site.” Prince Evil Dragon did not answer Angele’s question directly, he stopped before finishing.
“Now, let’s see the next candidate.”
After the noise, the screen flashed and the scene changed.
Endless snow was blowing in the air; the land was frozen, and the snow mountains were quiet. No living being could be seen in the area.
The image was moving forward quickly, and an enormous castle that was built with ice slowly appeared in the center of the land.
There were countless ice mirrors in a hall of the castle, they looked like ice blocks standing on the floor. A blonde girl was standing in the center of the mirrors, playing with her platinum hair accessories carefully.
She was wearing a long silk dress with a pair of black goose down tights. The red-black skirt covered her legs, her face was clean and beautiful. She looked like a princess from fairy tales.
“The granddaughter of the Magic Mirror Wizard, Ireland. She was the second one visited by the Guardians. The girl treats everyone fairly and she doesn’t care about who you are. She has many friends due to her outgoing personality. She is familiar with the Knights, rangers, and thieves in the central continent.”
Angele did not say anything this time, he was just thinking with his brow furrowed.
Prince Evil Dragon glanced at Angele and said in a light tone, “Go on.”
The screen flashed again and a vibrant forest appeared.
A group of bandits was being slaughtered by a man in a red robe on a narrow path in the forest. There were people groaning as the blood splashed.
A man in a black robe was watching the scene quietly on the side. There was a cold expression on his face. Also, the survivors were waiting for the result in the center of a barrier that was formed by three carriages.
It felt like watching a video on a large screen. The video slowly stopped after the man in the red rob killed all the survivors and left the area with the black robe.
Angele looked at the gold cage. “This is me and Turin. What does that mean?”
Prince Evil Dragon chuckled, “This was a scene recorded by the Guardians, which means, you’re the third person that was visited by the Guardians.”
Angele snorted. “I’m sure there are more people that were visited by the Guardians.”
Prince Evil Dragon remained silent, he waved his wing and changed the image again.
The screen flashed again and an area that was covered with purple flower petals appeared.
The dried yellow leaves were dropping to the ground that was full of purple petals. A gold cage appeared on the ground and the golden bird in the cage was twittering in a crisp voice.
“This is me. I was visited by the Guardians as well,” Prince Evil Dragon spoke in a light tone.
“That’s it?” Angele was confused. “There are only four of us? Including you and me? What does it mean?”
“I don’t know. I only know that they come from nowhere. It feels like they’re walking in the void. The scenes I showed you are top-secret. The wizard lords, the Silent Valley, or the leaders of the major organizations have no way to retrieve that information. Don’t worry.”
He stopped for a second and continued, “The wizard lords live in the richest areas of the central continent. There are many people hating on the central council. Without the area leaders, your life in the central continent wouldn’t be so peaceful.”
Angele was a bit surprised. “Are you saying that wizard lords are trying to make the situation worse?”
“It’s just my assumption. The wizard lords want the chaos era to come as soon as possible so they can hold the power in their hands. However, they don’t want the changes to damage the wizard world permanently. Things will get out of control if that happens,” Prince Evil Dragon explained.
