Angele felt a bit angry.
The Dark Wizard Tower was just using him and the promised reward was being delayed again and again.
“Alright, I don’t have much time. You can leave now since the procedure is completed.” Thomas did not wait for Angele to response, he just turned around and returned to the church.
Angele’s brow furrowed, he noticed that Thomas was acting like he did not care.
Angele did acquire some resources from the Dark Wizard Tower and he barely did anything for the organization so he was not concerned.
‘I should collect the resources and prepare for the summoning ritual…’ Angele turned around and walked to the city gate with the lion man.
The alliance of the wizard world was fighting against the army of the Dark Wizard Tower at the Molten Core River. There were millions of soldiers on the battlefield.
If he could set up the altar by the battlefield, he would be able to summon the lords without any problem.
Several days later, noon.
In front of a small town by the edge of the Molten River area.
Angele looked at the terrifying scene in the town with a serious expression on the face. His body was translucent, it seemed like he activated a stealth technique.
The puppet knight of the Dark Wizard Tower was slaughtering the mortals of the town. People were screaming and there was blood everywhere.
A dark knight picked up a baby that was about one month old; the baby was struggling and crying.
“I love the skin of babies, it has a soft and refreshing taste.” He said and grabbed the baby’s chest, pulling slightly.
A part of the baby’s chest was pulled and thrown into the dark knight’s mouth.
The dark knights had the bodies of zombies and their mouths were full of sharp teeth. They were riding tall horses, but their arms were so long that they could easily reach the ground using hands.
The dark knights looked liked like a race with long arms and they could easily grab the items from the ground.
The dark knight chewed the baby’s flesh, sharing the meat with the other dark knights.
The other dark knights were chasing the residents like chasing pigs. Some darks knights skewed the mortals and just let them bleed on the ground. The scene was terrifying.
Angele’s expression turned even more serious. Although he was a dark wizard, he had his own moral standards.
He deactivated the stealth technique after he saw the dark knights devouring a mortal’s baby.
It was a small town, there were only two streets that were covered with dead bodies. Six dark knights were patrolling the town and each of them held a dead body in hand. They were treating the dead bodies like snacks.
Angele covered his face with a mask and slowly approached the town.
“Lives and souls are precious. You shall not kill for no reason. Every time you take a life away, the world will be one step closer to the end.” Angele stepped into the town calmly.
“Maybe I made a wrong decision…”
A knight noticed Angele’s presence and watched him step into the town.
“A black robe?” The knight’s brow furrowed.
He turned his head around and shouted at another dark knight, “Karl!”
The dark knight chuckled and took out a dark metal crossbow, firing an arrow at Angele.
Angele grabbed the arrow using his hand easily.
“Puppet Knight Legion…” Angele’s hair started growing as he finished these words. The dark red hair charged to the dark knights like snakes.
The red hair quickly formed a large red web that looked like a spider web.
The hair was going after the dark knights.
A dark knight that looked like a captain quickly dodged the hair, but the rest of the dark knights were all pierced through their chests. Seconds later, their souls were removed and absorbed by the hair.
The captain drew his sword with a serious expression on the face. He started cutting the red hair, his movements so fast that no hair could touch his body.
He suddenly started laughing after he saw all other dark knights were killed.
“You’re dead… The deputy commander of my legion is in this area. You should’ve just walked away!” The captain sounded a bit crazy, he was trying his best to block the hair.
Angele looked at the last dark knight but did not say anything.
In Angele’s opinion, killing could be a way to reach his goal. He could release the insects in a random realm or eliminate his lab subjects without feeling anything; however, killing for fun was different. The dark knights were not treating the lives of the mortals seriously and he did not like that.
“Lives and souls. They’re the history and the future of this world. There must be a reason why I’m still alive and it’s the same for those mortals. They shall not be killed for fun,” Angele muttered as the dark knight was still trying to fight back.
“What the hell are you talking about?! You’re a dark wizard and I’m sure you’ve done something worse than what I just did,” the dark knight sneered. “All the creatures I know fear wizards like you more.”
“You don’t understand. It’s not about evil or justice, it’s about the meaning of life.” Angele smiled. “You don’t understand the meaning of life and I don’t like that so I’ll kill you.”
“Only living beings that respect lives can understand the meaning of life.” Angele suddenly thought about his father, his child, and the old dragon he met, they all passed away.
“You’ll respect the life if you know how precious it is…” he kept muttering.
Angele narrowed his eyes and the dark knight suddenly hesitated for a second. He stopped moving.
*CHI CHI CHI*
The red hair penetrated the dark knight’s body like countless needles.
“No!” the knight shouted, he grabbed the long hair and tried to pull it out of his body.
However, there was nothing he could do. The dark knight turned into a burnt corpse and a soul was pulled out of his body. The hair absorbed the soul quickly.
Angele checked the town. Most of the residents were slaughtered by the dark knights, and he only saved several children and women. However, their eyes looked soulless.
“Death Aura of the dark knights… They’ll die sooner or later…” Angele checked the survivors and shook his head. Those people were rotting from the inside.
There was nothing Angele could do. It was the same as turning a skeleton into a live human being.
Angele covered his face with the robe and disappeared into a ball of flame.
In the next several days, Angele encountered many similar events. The legions of the Dark Wizard Tower were just slaughtering and torturing the mortals.
Angele tried to control the situation, however, the scale was getting larger and larger. Also, the soldiers he met were also much stronger than the dark knights. He could not win the fights against the commanders without his true power. However, the Nightmare Realm was not connected to the wizard world yet.
He was walking the path of the ancient wizards and he had already given up the advanced meditation technique. Angele needed to prepare the altars and summon the lords so the Nightmare Realm would move to the wizard world faster.
Dark Wizard Tower transferred his ring to another wizard; also, Angele decided to help Vivian even if he had to become an enemy of the Dark Wizard Tower.
Angele was heading to the battlefield because he wanted to observe the situation before the war started.
If the Dark Wizard Tower could solve the problem from the Shadow Realm, they could easily kill Angele and eliminate the Elemental Hand.
Vivian was an elder of Elemental Hand and she would have to face the Dark Wizard Tower.
Angele would rather have the lords conquer the world since they had an agreement and this was the best option he had. He thought that the situation could not get any worse.
The Elemental Hand.
In the spacious meeting hall of the elder council.
“I still can’t find Green.” Vivian sat by the table with both hands on the wooden surface. She looked tired.
“Don’t worry, Vivian.” The Fifth Elder was trying to calm him down.
“Did you get in touch with the captains? How many soldiers are left?” the First Elder questioned in a deep tone.
“Well, three captains responded and 80 percent of the elite army was eliminated…” the Second Elder responded, his face pale.
The atmosphere in the hall was heavy and the place remained silent for a while.
“Gather all the soldiers we have. We need to join the final battle at the Molten River area,” First Elder ordered.
“What about the Legacy Magic Circle…”
The First Elder pointed at the table.
A white map appeared in the air and the areas on the map were marked in green or red.
“The red areas are controlled by the enemy and the green areas are still in our hands. Take a look.”
The other four elders looked at the map. Most of the areas were marked in red and there was barely any green area left.
“Without the magic circle, we…” A bitter smile appeared on Fourth Elder’s face.
The major organizations all set up their Legacy Magic Circles in their own territories and the elders would be weakened if they left their territory.
The First Elder sighed and replied, “The Fairy Realm is too strong for us and it’s a war we can’t win.”
Vivian inhaled deeply.
“Green left me a message, but…”
“Calm down… Green is a rank 3 wizard and…” The First Elder remained calm. “This is a critical period for us, you need to stay focused, Vivian!”
“Yes…” Vivian hesitated for a second and agreed.
