“Why? You don’t trust me?” The Count raised his head and released a ball of blue flame. The flame hit the wall on the left and exploded.
The burning flame expanded quickly and the black wall turned into egg-shaped blue mirror within seconds.
“This is what I saw when I encountered them,” the Count spoke in a deep tone. “Concept gear is the best gear you can find, but your soul and life are the fuel of the gear. We’re wizards who pursue the eternal life, but they’re different. That’s why the concept gear is so powerful.”
Angele did not respond to the Count’s words, he just looked at the mirror.
The image on the mirror flashed and a blue grassland slowly appeared. The endless grasses were waving in the gentle wind.
A young man in white armor that looked like a teenager was standing in the grassland.
The armor pieces were reflecting light like they were mirrors and the man’s hands were covered with burning white flames. The face mask completely covered his face and Angele guessed the man’s age by the look of his hands.
“That’s the concept gear. Its effects depend on the person who wears it. The gear will transform based on the owner’s thoughts,” the Count explained in a light voice.
“I heard that the concept gear’s power is related to the strength of its owner’s mind. The stronger one’s mind is, the stronger the gear will become, right?” Angele’s expression turned serious.
“That’s correct.” The Count nodded as he agreed.
The atmosphere in the hall was heavy.
Angele opened his mouth again after about ten minutes. “Which coordinates denote the position in the most critical situation at the moment?”
“The coordinates in the Black Chess City by the Molten River, this is their traveling route that was determined by my scouts. Their goal is clear, they wanted to destroy our altars city by city. I think they already know that the coordinates are the key to other realms and the wizard lords might be behind this,” the Count spoke in a deep tone. “Also, you can recognize them easily. People who wear concept gear all have strange runes on the back of their right hands and the runes look like they were part of their hands.”
“How long does it take to travel from here to the Black Chess City?” Angele’s brow furrowed.
“About half a month if you travel on land. About ten days with the best thunder eagles.”
Angele rubbed the purple eye-shaped ring on his left hand and thought for a while.
A ray of purple light was released from the ring and created a triangular light screen in front of him.
A dark face slowly appeared in the center of the light screen. There were two white eyes on the face but nothing else.
“Leader, I’m listening,” the black face responded in a deep tone, the voice sounded like it was from a man.
“It’s your time to shine. Go to the Black Chess City and kill all who have runes on the back of their right hands,” Angele ordered.
The black face hesitated. “All of them?”
“Yeah. We can’t afford any mistakes now,” Angele responded.
“As you wish.” The black face slowly disappeared and the light screen broke into purple light dots, dropping to the ground.
The black face was one of the wanted criminals that were recruited by Turin. Although Prince Evil Dragon recruited most of the wanted criminals, there were still some left on this land. More than criminals joined Angele’s team—some joined for a better future—but most of them joined because of their evil desire.
Angele needed to give them a chance to show their own power. He arranged the criminals into two groups; the first group was led by the black face, and the second group was led by a skeleton man.
He sent the black face as he wanted to know how strong the concept gear could be.
Angele glanced at the Count; he was not sure how strong the Count was, however, they were both area leaders, and the Count was probably a rank 4 wizard. Although the Count’s servants were weaker than Angele’s team, he still had a strong force in hand.
Suman destroyed the altars easily because the Count did not have enough people to guard all the altars at the same time; also, the concept gear had to greatly increase his power.
“Anyways, I’ll monitor the whole procedure since I’ve decided to offer you help. It’s getting late and I need to leave now. Where are my world stones?” Angele stood up and raised his right hand.
“I can only give you 32 world stones.” The Count’s face twitched. He hesitated for a second and took out a leather pouch, throwing it to Angele.
Angele caught the pouch and opened it right away. The pouch was full of shiny stones that varied in shapes and hues—red, blue, yellow, black, and three other colors.
He threw the pouch into his own pouch carefully after sealing it.
“Good. I’ll be leaving now.” Turning around, Angele walked to the door.
“It’s about time. I hope everything will go according to our plan.” The Count’s voice came from behind.
“I hope so too,” Angele responded in a light tone and left the hall.
Outside the hall was a vibrant garden with a twisted path in the middle, leading to the gate of the castle.
On the right of the garden, there were two girls chasing each other while laughing. The two girls were around 18 to 19 years old. The girl on the left was wearing a long dress with silver edges, she had an average-looking face that was covered with freckles, but it was obvious that she was from a rich family.
The girl on the right had a pretty face and a balanced body. She was also wearing a white dress with a white ribbon on the waist. She looked pure and attractive with her black ponytail and clean neck.
Angele closed the door and stopped for a second in front of the gate.
The noise made by the door was noticed by the two girls. They quickly stopped chasing each other and left the garden. They stood on the side and bowed to Angele.
“Master Green, did you finish the discussion with my father?” The girl grabbed her skirt and bowed to Angele again.
“Yes, we just finished the conversation, and I’ll be leaving. Miss Ana, are you playing with your friend?” Angele stopped and pursed his lips in a smile.
The noble girl was the only daughter of the Count, Ana. She was not talented, so she decided to learn from the Knights. She knew how to use a sword and she had many friends due to her personality. However, Angele did not understand why they said that Ana was an outgoing girl after meeting her several times.
Ana lowered her head, blushing.
“Yes, this is my friend, Beatrice, and I’m just showing her around the garden. Please don’t tell my father that you saw us chasing each other here…”
“No worries. You’re young and it’s great if you’re energetic. He won’t get mad at you.” Angele chuckled as his sight fell upon the girl hiding behind Ana.
“Beatrice, huh? We’ve met before, right? At the party?”
“Yes, master Green.” Beatrice bowed to Angele again and lowered her head.
“Sure, I’ll leave now so you can continue to enjoy yourselves.” Angele smiled and nodded. He walked past the two girls quickly.
He was moving at an extremely fast speed and it only took him seconds to disappear in the corner.
Ana exhaled deeply after Angele was no longer in her sight.
“Master Green comes to the castle to discuss important matters with my father. Although he has an average-looking face, I like his long red hair a lot. Also, I don’t know why, but I feel scared when talking to him.”
Beatrice exhaled deeply as well. “You’re right. Master Green looks young, but I’m also scared when talking to him. I don’t want him to think that I’m impolite. I met him during the party and for some reason, he kept a distance with me when we were on the balcony.”
“Anyways, he’s cool. Don’t you think he’s surrounded by a mysterious aura? Red eyes, long hair, and a muscular body. Also, my father says that he has a strong background.” Ana blushed again as she spoke, “Most importantly, he’s not married yet.”
“Come on…” Beatrice tapped on Ana’s forehead speechlessly, she noticed that the girl was shy after saying her part. “I think if you decide to spend your whole life with someone like him, it’ll be hard. You need to be careful with what you do all the time. It’ll be a problem.”
“Right, Ana, who exactly is this master Green, and what is he discussing with the Count?” Beatrice lowered her voice.
Ana thought for several seconds and responded, “Well, my father said that they were business partners or something…”
“Business partners?” Beatrice was a bit confused.
“Yeah. Also, it seems like my father respects master Green, they’re talking like they’re at the same level,” Ana explained.
“Huh?” Beatrice was still confused, she started thinking as she looked at the direction Angele went in.
Angele did not return to the ruins after leaving the castle. He got onto an eagle and flew in a random direction.
It was afternoon and the light from the setting sun illuminated the clouds. The gentle wind was brushing over Angele’s face.
Angele lowered his body on the back of the eagle and pulled the black feathers in different directions.
The black eagle changed its direction as Angele pulled its feathers.
Angele made sure that no one was tracking him and there were no paths in the forest. He then straightened his back and let the eagle fly freely.
Three white vultures appeared in the front, they made some strange noises and avoided contacting the eagle. There was also a group of red geese passing by on the left.
