Angele and the girl arrived at the headquarters quickly.
At the parking lot by the entrance, the black eagles and white owls were landing. The elder council was crowded due to the situation.
Teams of Knights and apprentices were entering or leaving the gate. There were several messengers and supervisors writing something by the gate.
“You! Take your team to the Green Forest Tower.”
“Farak, have you delivered the items?”
“Hurry! Move! Move!”
The messengers and the supervisors were giving the orders in loud voices.
A middle-aged male supervisor felt relieved after he noticed Angele was present. He tapped the shoulder of the patrol team captain and asked the captain to leave.
“Green, it’s great you’re here. Your mother is looking for you and we can’t contact you through communication runes for some reason. The telescope and the crystal orb are also not working. Elder Vivian asked you to go to the elder’s room, she wants to make sure that you’re not wandering around outside.”
“I understand.” Angele nodded. “Are you guys trying to inform the cities? I know that the communication runes are not working.”
The communication rune was the basic method for the wizards to communicate with each other. Although it was slow and unstable, it was still a safe way to send important messages.
“Yeah. No one’s communication rune works. They blocked the runes completely.” Angele had met the supervisor once during the party and they knew each other. “You can give it a try if you want to.”
Angele’s brow furrowed. He lowered his head and checked his nails. None of the communication runes was flashing but the purple ring could still be used to contact members of the Dark Wizard Tower.
He glanced at the girl and noticed that she was worried about something.
“I’ll go see my mother now.”
The supervisor started working again after finishing speaking. He was sending the soldiers to different areas.
The place was crowded and noisy. The noise made by the flying mounts, the supervisors, and the intense footsteps were echoing in the air.
Angele joined the crowd and stepped into the gate. He walked up the hill and turned several times by the corners. He arrived at a relatively quiet hallway several seconds later.
An arched door by the end of the hall was half-open.
Angele glanced at the woman and opened his mouth. “Wait here.”
The girl bit her lips and stopped, but did not say anything.
Angele stepped forward and turned his head around. “You should go find your family members. Tell me your name.”
The girl heard the question and quickly responded, “Gilnokki.” She sounded a bit excited.
“Leave now.” Angele turned his head back and pushed the door open.
It was an average-sized room and most of the decorations were red. The room looked just like a room in the ruin. Vivian was resting on a sofa with her eyes closed. Her long blonde hair reflected under the light.
Files that were waiting for her signature piled up on the desk in front of the sofa.
“Green, are you alright?” Vivian stood up as she saw Angele; she was worried.
“I had no way to contact you and I was worried. I already sent a team to search for you. I didn’t know you were at the headquarters.”
“Don’t worry. Have some rest. I’ll be here.” Angele sat down by Vivian. There was a gentle expression on his face.
Vivian nodded and sat down. She was rubbing her temples.
“There are too many things waiting for me to deal with. I’ll take a nap now. Can you handle those files for me? Just stamp them…” She laid on the sofa, closed her eyes, and fell asleep again.
“No problem.” Angele smiled. “I haven’t worked for you in a while.”
He grabbed a file.
The gentle yellow light from the crystal lamps on the walls coated the leather paper with a gentle yellow glow.
Angele checked the content and stamped the file. It would take one second for him to understand the content.
He had the biochip helping him and he could basically think like the biochip but in a slower way. Angele could figure out if the file was important or not after a glance.
He could think much faster than other wizards or creatures, even the monster with eight eyes could not read as fast as him.
The files were being stamped one by one. The files were activated after being stamped and they would disappear into the air. It was a special method used by the organization and the messengers would be able to receive the files right after they were activated.
Although most of the communications were blocked, the files could still travel a short distance within the organization.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes and it almost looked like the files were flying from his left hand to the right hand, however, there were so many files that he only finished half of them in ten minutes.
Suddenly, he paused for a second as he felt the warmth coming from his left shoulder.
Angele smiled and looked at Vivian who was taking a nap at his shoulder. The woman was relaxed when her son was around. Vivian was an elder with strong power in the organization but Angele could see the saliva dripping down her chin.
He slightly moved his body so Vivian could slide into his arms and have an easier time sleeping. Angele rubbed her long hear and his sight fell upon the purple ring on his left hand.
He looked at the ring for a while and a strange look appeared on his face.
Angele stopped thinking and started handling the files again.
Vivian slowly woke up from the sweet dream after a while. She was lying the sofa with a black robe covering her body, but Angele was nowhere to be found.
She straightened her back and looked at the desk; she was still a bit dizzy, but she noticed that Angele stamped more than one thousand files while she was sleeping.
Rubbing her temples, Vivian muttered, “How long did I sleep for…?”
She grabbed a file and noticed that Angele had already stamped it.
The files were written using a special code and they were hard to understand. There were three different stamps, used for different contents. Stamping files sounded like an easy job but it would cost Angele a lot of time.
It would take the wizards in the intelligent department couple days to handle around one thousand files.
“Wait… the ink is still wet…”
She started checking the files and was surprised. Vivian’s eyes were wide open after she finished checking all the files.
“How is that even possible… He stamped all the files!”
Suddenly, she remembered something.
“Don’t tell me he used the same stamp for all the files! Damn!” She quickly went through the stamps.
Several minutes later, Vivian found something that was hard to believe.
“What a surprise! This kid…” She was a bit speechless. “Where did he learn all this?”
Vivian checked all the stamps and she still had no idea how Angele managed to complete all the files in such a short duration.
She put down the files in her hands. Vivian looked happy and surprised at the same time.
“Well, it seems like bringing me troubles is not the only thing he does…”
In a quiet room in the headquarters.
Angele sat in the center of the room with his legs crossed and there were white light dots rotating around his body.
“I need some private time. Seal the area for me.”
“Sure,” a female voice responded. “The area will be sealed for three days.”
“Sure, let me know if there’s an emergency.” Angele slowly closed his eyes.
“Yes, Master,” the same female voice replied.
In the forest outside the Elemental Hand.
A ball of red flames appeared behind a tall tree on the vibrant grass.
The red flames quickly turned into a human being. It was Angele who was surrounded by some red light.
Angele, who was wearing a long red robe, looked at the headquarters of the Elemental Hand.
‘The energy will support this shadow form for three days, but I’ll need more time if I want to go to the central area. I probably have to rely on the teleportation.’
He looked at his translucent body and noticed that the purple ring was glowing on his left hand.
‘I hope everything will go according to my plan.’
He disappeared into a ball of red flames again.
The central area.
The Anfaria Wizard High Council.
The clouds were illuminated by the light from the setting sun and blocked half of the sky.
The Central City looked like a large black pancake on the ground. The city was divided into two areas by a long clean river.
The city was on top of a mountain, surrounded by cliffs. It looked like a city built on a wide stone pillar.
The river in the center of the city was endless. It was running down the edges of the city, falling down the cliffs, and turning into water pools that varied in size.
There were several small forests in the city. A translucent red shadow appeared in one of the forests, turning into a human being.
The man had long dark-red hair and a muscular body. His average-looking face was a bit mysterious. It was Angele’s shadow who just teleported to the city from the Tarry River area.
Angele sealed the room because he needed to focus on controlling his shadow form and he would not be able to control his physical form at the same time.
The shadow form had the same power level as a rank 1 wizard and it could be easily killed.
It was created using pure energy, but it could still be teleported to areas with portals built by the Dark Wizard Tower.
