Angele inhaled deeply and carefully put the box into the black mirror.
The altitude of the airship had already increased and the lake on the land looked like a palm-sized tofu. There were strange creatures flying over the snow mountains.
A thin layer of pink barrier appeared around the airship, blocking the intense wind.
Angele stood by the railing for a while and decided to walk around.
“Green, do you have time?” A male voice came from the side.
Angele turned around and saw a man with a cold expression on his face.
“Head of the Intelligence Department. Do you want to ask me about Eugene?”
“Yeah.” The man nodded. “Don’t worry. It’s related to Elder Vivian and we’ll proceed with caution.”
Angele thought for a while and opened his mouth. “Everything started at the air transportation city. I assume you already know that I have a friend from the air transportation city.”
“Yes, we do.” The man nodded. “You and your friends had a fight with Eugene’s young sister and killed her. That’s why Eugene is going after you.”
“Yeah, that’s pretty much the situation.” Angele was not concerned, he knew that the Intelligence Department already had the information they needed. The man was just here to confirm the information since the incident was related to the son of an elder.
“Much appreciated,” the man replied politely, turned around, and left.
Masha walked to Angele after she saw that the man left.
“Green, the war is over. There’ll be a party for the wizards of the central continent at the Ice Lord Mountain of the Northern Ice Plain. Are you interested?”
Angele hesitated. “Who is the host?”
“The new Mirror Lord, a beauty that’s quite attractive. Also, she doesn’t have a partner yet.” Masha smiled. “What do you think? You might have a chance.”
“I’ll pass. Are there any other events for the elders?” Angele wondered.
“They need to rest. They lost a lot of resources and wizards on the battlefield, they need to refill the energy pool. I think they’ll spend years here.” Masha shrugged. “Finally, the peaceful life is back. I don’t even have time to do research during the war. Ah, the magic mount racing is coming soon. It’s held once every five years. Are you interested? You’ll be able to see well-trained or modified mounts during the competition. We can catch some special mounts and join the race.”
“Sorry, I have something that I need to take care of.” Angele declined the offer.
“Fine, I’ll find someone else to go with me.” Masha shrugged. “Also, I heard the elders brought back a group of slaves. There is a birdman from the Feather Race… The birdman is…”
Masha just would not stop and Angele was listening to her stories patiently.
Minutes later, the large palm-sized headquarter of Elemental Hand appeared on the ground, and the airship started landing.
The elders went to the meeting hall right after the ship landed. The rest of them returned to their position as well.
Vivian spent several minutes talking to Angele. He walked straight to the volcano ruin after finishing the conversation. He was still worried about the Dark Wizard Tower’s plan and his progression in the Nightmare Realm.
The war was coming and there were many things that he needed to pay attention to. He was getting more and more anxious every day.
He rubbed the purple ring and information was transferred into his brain.
The Count had successfully activated all the world stone altars and the dimension gate was ready to use.
Angele concluded the information he collected as he walked into the unpopulated forest. Suddenly, a strong and cold mentality wave was transferred to him through the purple ring.
He stopped and stood by a red tree.
“The war is coming. Me, Duke Mystery, will complete the preparation. Count Wheat and Green, please check all the altars again. We need to make sure that everything is done properly. The return of the empire is important. Resources are not the only thing we’re going after and I hope you can understand.” The deep and slow voice echoed in Angele’s ears.
“Third Legion, War Elephant Legion, and Wood Dragon Legion, please go through the dimension gate. Complete the process within three sun hours and start building the base and the energy pool immediately after you arrive at the destination. Don’t disappoint the Grand Lich.”
The mentality wave disappeared into the air, but his voice was still echoing.
‘That’s one of the five dukes from the Fairy Empire, Duke Mystery; he’s also an important member of the Dark Wizard Tower. His mentality wave is so strong!’ Angele’s expression turned serious. The man’s mentality wave was deep like a sea and extremely cold. For some reason, the Duke reminded him of Spider—Spider was probably stronger, but their power level had to be close.
Angele found an empty area and checked the surroundings. He made sure that he was not followed and disappeared into a ball of flames.
Angele teleported to the area around Eye Devil’s body.
In front of Eye Devil’s humongous body, a black building that looked like a pyramid was built on the land, releasing intense black smoke.
On top of the building was a large black ball with a diameter of more than ten meters. Countless blue souls were being absorbed by the black ball which felt like an endless abyss.
Angele appeared in the area in front of the black pyramid, which was guarded by the eyeball knights carefully.
The guards were wearing black armor with red spears in their hands and the eyeballs in their helmets were coated by a dark red glow. They were scanning everything in the area using their mentality waves.
Angele was wearing a black robe. He glanced at the pyramid.
The black pyramid had the similar height as Eye Devil, they were both more than 1000 meters tall. Eye Devil’s head was at the same level as the black ball and she was staring at it.
Angele walked to the pyramid and stepped on the black staircase. The eyeball knights on the side all bowed to him.
“You’re here.” Red light flashed in Eye Devil’s helmet and she looked at Angele. “You’re way too early. The next gathering is not here yet.”
“Well, I have something to ask.” Angele’s brow furrowed. He teleported in flames and arrived at the top of the pyramid seconds later. He stood by the black ball.
On the platform by the ball, a woman in black was holding a red leather notebook and sitting on the ground with her legs crossed. It seemed like she was thinking of something.
“You’re here?” The woman in black noticed Angele’s presence and woke up. She quickly stood up.
“I still have questions about the elemental creatures… Could you help me?” she questioned politely.
Angele asked the woman to help him purify the negative emotions and decided to pay her back by teaching her some basics of the wizards. Sadly, the woman could not even understand the things that were taught to the apprentices.
The subjects that all the rank 2 apprentices could understand took the woman couple years just to memorize the basics. If the woman was born in the wizard world, she would be a mortal her whole life.
Strangely, the woman had never mentioned that she wanted to return to her own realm. She just studied all the things that Angele taught her.
“How’s my Black Death Ritual?” Angele questioned in a low voice.
“It’s going well, but I need couple more months.” The woman shook her head.
Angele narrowed his eyes and stopped asking. He turned around and looked at Eye Devil.
Eye Devil was still sealed by four blue chains.
“Where are Bone and Spider now?”
“Spider is in the Void Realm and she’s killing everything she sees. Also, it seems like she found something interesting and she’ll probably stay there for a while. Bone and Vapor finished off Burning Realm. They decided to meet Sun God in the Abyss Realm,” Eye Devil responded.
“They conquered three realms in four years? That’s fast.” Angele smiled. “However, it’ll be great if they could proceed faster. I’m still recovering but there’s something that can speed up my progress.”
“Huh? What do you need?” Eye Devil was interested.
Angele took out a palm-sized metal box from the black mirror. Translucent energy runes were floating around the metal box. The glowing white runes were rotating around the box. It seemed like the runes were guarding the box.
“The ritual power of the Destruction Eye? What are you trying to protect with such a strong power?” Eye Devil recognized the runes and she was even more interested.
Angele smiled and did not say anything.
He moved his hand through the runes and opened the box. Inside was a smaller black box.
He opened the black box and there was a slim test tube in the sand that filled up the box.
Blue and red liquid was flowing in the test tube. Strangely, the two colorful solutions did not merge with each other. They twisted around like two snakes.
Angele carefully took the test tube out of the black box.
“This is the seed I created using the special creatures from different realms.
“That’s it? What will it do?” Eye Devil checked the test tube carefully but did not detect any strong energy or mentality waves. Besides the strong life energy inside the test tube, there was nothing noticeable.
