“I know what you’re implying. We’re the only two parties that are not under the wizard lords’ control,” Angele interrupted, “I assume they don’t know where we are.”
“You’re wrong. We’re not under their control because they didn’t choose us at the beginning. You replaced the granddaughter of the Shadow Lord, Eugene, and I replaced the Wizard of Destiny, Arisma, because Shadow Lord assassinated Arisma for some reason.” It seemed like Prince Evil Dragon did collect a lot of information.
“Get to the point, I’m still not sure what’s your purpose.” Angele was getting anxious after so much random information. The only thing he confirmed was that Shadow Lord was the one who ambushed Henn and Arisma. Everything else Prince Devil Dragon said was useless.
“It’s simple, to be honest. I want you to work with me and take control of the situation as the chaos era comes. We can sign a private Chaos Contract. Although I don’t understand why the Guardians chose you, there must be reasons, and I decided to trust them. Also, most importantly, you’re the area leader, and your rights are important to us.” Prince Devil Dragon waved his wings and asked the black shadow to leave.
Angele hesitated. “I need to leave the area for a while to deal with the frost damage and you need to be aware of that before we sign the Chaos Contract. It’s an important point, I think.”
“I don’t care as long as you’re on my side. I trust the guidance of my destiny. I can’t get in touch with the other wizards and that’s why I’m betting on you,” Prince Evil Dragon responded calmly.
Angele nodded and agreed, “Alright then. I’ll work with you.”
“Good, then. We shall never betray each other in the incoming chaos era.”
Prince Evil Dragon waved his wings, the purple petals from the floor and the walls flew to the air. They rotated several times and turned into a red scroll.
Angele and Prince Evil Dragon closed their eyes at the same time. They released black and red energy particles. The energy particles were quickly absorbed by the red scroll.
After the noise, the energy particles contacted the scroll and exploded into a ball of colorful gas.
The gas turned from red to blue, blue to purple, purple to yellow, then released the light that looked like a rainbow.
Suddenly, the colorful gas ball shrank, and turned into a black dot, disappearing into the air.
There was nothing between Angele and Prince Devil Dragon, even the air was missing. Vortexes were created by the air that was drawn into the void and the wind made the edges of Angele’s robe fly.
“The contract is signed since we already discussed the rules. Alright, I’ll give you one more thing.” Prince Evil Dragon raised his right wing and released a golden ray into Angele’s right hand.
“That’s…” Angele closed his eyes and there were images being transferred into his mind.
He opened his eyes and nodded. “Good, that’s it then.”
“We shall meet again.”
Angele nodded, turned around, and headed to the exit with Turin.
Prince Evil Dragon’s background was much stronger than he expected, it seemed like he had the information the wizard lords did not acquire. The only strange part was that Prince Evil Dragon needed the information from Dark Wizard Tower’s intel center.
Also, it seemed like the gold cage was an item that was used to seal Prince Evil Dragon.
However, Angele was not concerned.
He was currently working on the fourth stage of Molten Core River and the next part of this advanced meditation technique was Earth.
Molten Core River was separated into three major parts: Fire, Earth, and Lava.
Each major part had four stages and Angele had reached the last stage of the first part. Although he’d just finished the third stage not too long ago, the buff from the true form increased the attributes of his real from greatly. Also, with the help of the Sound of the Knell and the Erin’s Funeral Oration, Angele had already stabilized at the fourth stage.
He was just one step away from becoming a wizard of dawn.
However, the gap between a rank 3 wizard and a rank 4 wizard was huge. The mentality was not the only problem.
Angele thought that he could advance to rank 4 if he had enough mentality, but the actual situation was different.
Angele and Turin headed straight to the headquarters of Elemental Hand after leaving the valley so he could return to the ruins as soon as possible.
He tried asking the biochip to list the requirement of becoming a rank 4 wizard.
Zero did the job well and gave him a detailed plan.
Sadly, the plan was created based on the information in the database, and the required materials all no longer existed.
Also, Angele had to get rid of the frost damage in his body, but there was no information related to it in the database.
Angele was practicing a Fire category meditation technique and the breath of the eye-gouging dragon was in the Ice category. It would be impossible for Angele to become a rank 4 wizard with the frost damage in his body.
So, the frost damage had become his biggest problem at the moment.
Two days later, in the Wheat City.
In the city lord’s castle, a middle-aged man was cursing.
In the main hall of the castle, the mustached Count had a serious expression on his face as he put his hands on the surface of the desk.
There was no servant in the hall, which was protected by an energy barrier that could prevent others from hearing the noise he made.
A man was sitting on the right side of the Count; there was a calm expression on his face, and he was not anxious like the Count at all.
The man had long red hair and he was wearing a black robe. It was Angele, who just came back from the valley.
Angele received the Count’s invitation later so he sneaked into the city. They needed to discuss the initiation of the plan; however, the situation had changed.
“Count, a third of your plan has already failed. If you don’t do anything, your efforts will all be wasted.” Angele smiled as he sipped from the glass; he was drinking some refreshing blue drink.
“I underestimated them…” the Count finally calmed down after hearing those words. “There are so many of them and I think the situation might get out of control, that’s why I’m asking for your help.”
The Count bit his lips. “I joined the action myself but they still escaped…”
The Count asked Angele not to interrupt his plan so that he would not need to share the honor with Angele; however, the situation was so bad that he had to ask for help.
Angele nodded. “I’ll help for the sake of the plan; however, you need to do me a favor.”
“What do you want? Don’t forget that we’re both area leaders.” The Count’s brow furrowed.
“But you’re the one who made the situation worse, right?” Angele chuckled. The Count had no idea how he should respond, so he remained silent.
Angele continued, “My request is simple, very simple. We need at least 28 coordinates for the plan to be initiated, if we need to connect to different dimensions, we need to build altars with the world stones at the coordinates. I’m interested in exploring other realms so I want to build my own world stone altar if you have any world stones to spare.”
“World stones, huh? You need different world stones to go to different realms. Are you seeking the path of the ancient wizards? I don’t care what you want to do, but you need to tell me how many stones you need,” the Count questioned in a deep tone. He barely had any resources left on hand and had to rely on Angele. Angele’s servants were critical to the plan at this point.
Although the Count wanted to save the world stones for himself, he had to give them to Angele for the big plan.
“Just give me some small world stones; it’s reasonable, right? You know I’m having trouble with the frost damage and I want to test my luck. There might be something from other realms that will help me.” Angele shrugged.
“Test your luck?” The Count decided not to dig too deep as he knew that it was not Angele’s true purpose.
Angele acquired the location of the last eye-gouging dragon from Prince Evil Dragon. Although the dragon was still in the main world, the location could only be accessed with a certain amount of world stones. That was why he rushed to the city right away after learning about the situation.
Angele spent way too much time on the politics and his progression was greatly slowed down. With the frost damage in his body, there was barely anything he could do, and his attributes would decrease again if he did not do anything. He was getting anxious about it.
The Count decided to go straight to the point as Angele did not want to tell him the truth.
“Alright, so the situation is getting worse every second. There are 28 coordinates, but the altars on nine coordinates were destroyed. It seems like they have a way of detecting those altars, so my servants have to stay at the altars they were assigned to. The low-level altars were not a problem, but the high-level altars took us more than ten years to build. We can’t lose altars like this anymore!”
“Why don’t you send your people to eliminate them?” Angele wondered.
“Well, I did.” The Count’s expression turned serious again. “The strongest servant I had decided to join their team when he was chasing after them.”
“Huh?” Angele was a bit surprised. “Who’re those people? Do you know them?”
“The son of the Thousand Waterfall City’s lord, Suman, a member of the Elemental Hand.”
“Wait, we saw him in the stone chamber, right?” Angele was confused. “He has no talent, right? How can he destroy the altars?”
The Count looked at Angele and lowered his voice before he answered, “He has a concept gear…”
Suddenly, those words caught Angele’s attention. He wanted to know what kind of concept could turn a weak mortal into a strong opponent and it seemed like the Count had no way to deal with Suman.
