“I only have one choice, don’t I?” Angele shrugged. “I don’t want the Dark Wizard Tower to take over my homeland.”
“I’m glad that you can make the decision so fast.” Prince Evil Dragon smiled. “What about the contract you signed with the Dark Wizard Tower—will that be a problem?”
“It won’t be a problem. The contract stated that I need to work for the organization if I’m enjoying the benefits it provided. I’m not getting anything from the Dark Wizard Tower so I don’t have to work for it. Alright, I’ll be leaving now, it seems like someone else is visiting you.” Angele stood up and straightened his back.
“Close the door for me.”
“Sure, no worries.”
Angele stepped out of the cave and was about to close the door. He saw a man in a gray robe walking in the hallway.
The gray robe glanced at Angele and lowered his head.
Angele narrowed his eyes, he noticed that the man had pale skin, a pair of sharp eyes, and golden eyebrows.
They walked past each other. The gray robe entered the cave and closed the door. The stone cave was completely sealed after the door closed.
Angele stopped and thought for a while. He shook his head slightly and walked to the exit.
He walked down the long dark tunnel and a bright exit appeared in the front.
Outside the exit was a cliff of a mountain and the ground was covered with broken pieces of red stones.
Angele stood on the cliff and overlooked the area.
On the yellow plain under the dark sky, a large army wearing white outfits lined up on the ground and there were soldiers merging into the army. They looked like two long white lines.
There were white griffins and black eagles in the sky. They were rotating in a triangular formation and each of the flying mounts was at least seven meters long. The knights on their backs were wearing light armor and holding dragon lances that were more than ten meters long in hand.
Strangely, the flying mounts were all holding irregular crystals in their sharp claws.
“They’re already gathering the army…” Angele overlooked the soldiers.
There was a wizard with white hair standing in front of the formation, he was holding a white basket that was full of flowers in his hand. He grabbed some pink petals and threw them to the knight that was standing in front of him.
The knight kneeled and the two metal wings on his back opened. The metal wings were swinging like real wings, it almost looked the wings were part of his body.
The knight was wearing a sealed helmet and heavy armor. He looked like a war machine, he was almost five meters tall even when he kneeled.
A long and deep sound made by a bell echoed in the air.
The flying mounts that were rotating in the sky broke the crystals they were holding into pieces. The crystals turned into black petals and started falling.
The petals landed on the soldiers’ shoulders and hands. The looked like plain decorations on the white armor the soldiers were wearing.
The silver knight slowly stood up and drew his greatsword, raising it to the air.
“Victory to us!” A deep and loud noise came from his helmet and it echoed in the whole area.
The army got noisy as all the soldiers raised their long swords and shouted.
It sounded like someone blowing a large horn.
The knight raised his head and looked at the gray sky. A team of enormous red eagles that were surrounded by small eagles was flying in the sky. There were so many of them they looked like a red cloud.
Each of the large red eagles was over 300 meters long, they looked like heavy fortresses that were flying in the air.
Angele by the entrance of the cave and looked at the red eagles. He was a bit excited.
“The guardian beast of the Sky Lord and Prince Evil Dragon’s Giant Knight Legion. They’re ready for the final battle.”
Some of the black petals were blown to Angele by the wind.
He grabbed one of the petals and noticed that the petal was releasing some strange energy waves that were trying to enter his body.
Angele dropped the petal and looked to the right. There were several gray robes with arms that looked like eagle wings landing on an empty platform.
Their arms returned to normal after they landed safely on the surface of the platform.
A female gray robe noticed Angele’s presence and glared at him, but she did not do anything. She just led the team into the cave by the platform.
Angele was not concerned, he jumped down and turned into a ball of dark flames, flying down to the left.
The flames rotated around the mountain and landed on a pile of stones.
On the empty ground by the stones, the woman in white armor was checking the campfire that had already extinguished. It seemed like something was buried in the ashes of the campfire and she was trying to pick the thing up.
The dark flames landed behind the woman and turned into Angele.
“So, what do you say? Just give me your concept gear,” Angele spoke.
The woman did not turn her head around.
“You’re daydreaming.” She was removing the skin of the food in her hand. She took a big bite and started chewing it.
The woman’s white armor was dirty, it was covered with dirt and dust. Also, she tied her long black hair up and Angele could easily see the grease on her face.
The food the woman was eating looked like sweet potato and the fragrance permeated the air.
Angele stood behind the woman and remained silent.
“I’ll die sooner or later, right?” The woman finished the food and turned around.
She stared at Angele in the eyes and started mocking him again. “I can’t cast spells anymore and my body is weakened. I’m just a mortal now. You can rape me, torture me, or just do whatever you want. I’m prepared.”
“Well, sounds good.” Angele was a bit surprised. He thought for a while and took out a finger-long test tube from the black mirror that was hanging on his belt.
There was a white egg-shaped ball inside the test tube and that was it.
Angele unsealed the test tube carefully and took out the white ball.
He looked at the woman. “Eat it.”
The woman grabbed the ball and swallowed it without asking any questions.
“You’ll force me to eat it if I refuse so I’ll just do it myself.” Her brow furrowed after swallowing the ball. “It’s sweet but the aftertaste is strange.”
“You’ll know what it does later. I made it not so long ago.” Angele shrugged. “Let’s go. I need to join an operation. The war is still going on.”
They walked to the top of the mountain.
“The Giant Knight Legion and the guardian beasts are here. There must be different legions in different areas. Have you finished the rune circles I asked you to prepare?” Angele wondered as he climbed up the hill.
“It’s done. You can check my memory, right? Why don’t you just check it yourself,” the woman responded.
“Becky, that’s the name you used in the last 200 years. I’ll just call you that,” Angele said without turning his head around. “You’re right, we are just chess pieces in the war between the Dark Wizard Tower and the wizards of central continent. I never thought you’d hate me so much. Without that competition, things would be much easier for us.”
“I understand what you’re trying to imply.” Becky wiped her mouth but her pretty face was still dirty. “It doesn’t matter now.”
Angele smiled and continued, “You tried to suicide 13 times but you never succeeded. It’s the power of the bloodline, you won’t be able to do anything.”
The two kept advancing through the broken pieces of stones.
“You know everything, yeah.” Becky shrugged and mocked him.
“Your concept gear is valuable to me.” Angele smiled and stopped talking.
They remained silent as they advanced.
Minutes later, a flat platform appeared ahead—there were around ten people waiting on the platform. They were wearing black or white robes, but none of them had any badges on them.
An old man that was standing by the edge of the platform glanced at Angele and said, “Alright, two more.”
The flying beasts in the sky were still roaring, the beasts and the griffins were also making noises.
The other people on the platform were not concerned, they were chatting or meditating on the ground. There were also several people just checking the surroundings.
Angele walked to a less crowded area with Becky.
A man and a woman with red hair were chatting on the right. The man glanced at Angele and it looked like he was surprised.
“Are you from the Elemental Hand?” The man wondered.
Angel was a bit surprised. “Sorry, you’re?”
The man walked to Angele and smiled. “I’m from the St. King Mountains and I’m here to help the alliance. I thought it would take the members of the Elemental Hand a while to arrive.”
“St. King Mountains?” Angele had heard of this organization, it was one of the strongest organizations in the west. The members of the organization were good at energy modification and tracking spells. Their modified fire rune circles were famous and the organization communicated with Elemental Hand a lot. The Watchers used to visit St. King Mountains from time to time.
The man with red hair smiled and said, “My name is Justin and this is Monteria. She’s a Fire Raven.” He introduced himself and the woman to Angele.
The woman nodded and smiled, but did not say anything.
“As a Fire Raven, Monteria’s throat is different, so she won’t talk,” Justin explained.
Angele nodded. “I understand. The Fire Ravens have different throats than normal creatures. It’s fine.”
They had a short conversation and traded information about their organizations. Angele already knew what Justin was implying.
They were all rank 4 wizards and they should help each other in the operation. Angele was not concerned, he needed more information anyway. The two wizards were talking to each other like they were old friends. They even talked about spell modification.
Becky was resting on the side with her eyes closed. Monteria was just listening to their conversation with a smile on the face, she remained silent.
Half an hour later, three more people appeared on the platform. Two were male and the other was a female. One of the men was half-naked, he was wearing a bone helmet and a leather skirt. There were some complicated tattoos that looked like totems on his face.
The man glanced at the group and his sight fell upon a female black robe that was standing alone on the platform.
“Fiona, I didn’t expect to see you here. What did Prince Evil Dragon offer you?” he questioned in a deep tone.
The woman named Fiona was reading a brown leather book. She raised her head and looked at the man after hearing his words.
“Anchura? I thought you were hunting the black-striped rhinos on the ice plain.”
