The strong wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower stepped forward and tried to handle the attack. Raising their left arms, they blocked all the spells using the black plates they created. Some of them summoned black bats and eagles to defend against the ice wolves.
Fiona and several other wizards flew into the air, they were trying to stop the strong wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower. They were not casting spells with long incantations and would stop if the opponents’ spells were about to be completed. It seemed like they knew how to counter each other’s spells.
The fight between strong wizards looked more peaceful than the wizards on the ground.
Angele and Becky were still hiding by the edge of the platform. Angele released several weak lava balls and it looked like they were fighting two black eagles.
There was no point for Angele to reveal his true power at the moment. Their team was winning the battle with the buffed Dark Cloud Ancestor. The wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower had to cast multiple defensive spells to handle the attacks of the cloud giant.
Also, there were more wizards on Angele’s side and Angele assumed that they would win the battle without any problem.
“Just give up! You’ll lose sooner or later!” Simon shouted in the sky.
“Naive!” A high-pitched voice echoed in the sky. “Help us now! What’re you waiting for?”
An enormous white cross flashed in the sky; the tip of the cross stabbed into Simon’s back.
Anchura sneered and lowered his hand. “I’ve been waiting for this moment.”
The wizards from the alliance were surprised by what Anchura did. The wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower caught the chance and injured several of their opponents.
Simon’s head was pierced by a ray of red light and he fell to the ground.
Anchura was still attacking the wizards from the alliance. He created another white cross in his hand and aimed at Fiona, who was still fighting. The black robes around Anchura all charged at the wizards from the alliance, their fingernails covered in red glow.
Angele was also a bit surprised, he knew that members of the Dark Wizard Tower were waiting for something to happen, but he did not expect to see Anchura betray the alliance.
“Well, it’s not going well, I guess…” Becky laughed.
“You’ll probably die here,” she said and jumped forward, blocking an attack from the eagle.
Angele did not respond to her words, he took out some blue crystals and held them in his hand. He started moving on the edge of the platform.
He glanced at other wizards in his team and noticed that they were also trying to hide. The battlefield was in chaos and strong wizards were not paying attention to the weak wizards.
“Watch out!” Fiona suddenly shouted in the sky, she threw her book into the air and pages quickly fell off the book, surrounding her in the center. Fiona disappeared into the sky after the pages left her body.
Suddenly, all sounds disappeared from the platform. The wolves, the explosions, and the spells were no longer making any noise.
Angele noticed the change immediately on the edge of the platform; after the noise disappeared, he heard some gentle music that sounded like it was from a harp echoing in the sky.
The music was slow and gentle, it was making people sleepy.
Angele looked at Justin, Miray, and Monteria, they all looked sleepy. It seemed like Aria did not notice the change and already fell asleep.
The woman with a ponytail was trying to help Aria. She stood in front of her and blocked several wizards using a bronze shield, shooting golden daggers at the enemies.
“It’s Eternal Dream!” Justin shouted at Angele, but the only thing the latter could hear was the music. He had to observe Justin’s mouth carefully to figure out what he was saying.
‘Eternal Dream…’ Angele’s expression turned serious. The music would slow down the energy movement and make every living being in the effective range fell asleep.
Angele looked at the wizards in Fiona’s team, they were eliminating their enemies one by one. They were probably ready for the Eternal Dream since none of them looked sleepy.
The wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower were finished off quickly, only six of them were left after about ten seconds.
Some of the wizards from the alliance also died. Only three wizards were still alive in Fiona’s team.
Angele noticed that he could no longer hide. Members of his group were hiding most of the time and none of them was injured. He suddenly realized that he had to do something.
A red balloon appeared at where Fiona was at when Angele was still thinking. The balloon had the size of a fist when it appeared, but its size was increasing quickly. The balloon had the size of a human’s head several seconds later.
The balloon exploded and a white doll with blond hair appeared. The doll was moving its neck and arms slowly, it looked like a robot that needed oiling.
Angele noticed that the doll’s lips were moving, it seemed like the doll was trying to talk, but no one could hear it in the Eternal Dream.
The doll’s expression changed, it looked a bit impatient. The doll opened its mouth and started screaming.
The doll’s voice was getting louder and louder in the music. It sounded like a girl that was screaming in a high-pitched tone.
Finally, the sound returned to the platform after the doll’s voice got louder than the Eternal Dream.
“You can’t escape from Alice!” The doll stopped screaming and a mysterious smile appeared on its face.
Fiona reappeared in the sky and her face turned pale. She stared at the doll with a surprised look on the face. It seemed like she was wondering how the doll broke the Eternal Dream.
“Retreat!” she suddenly shouted and disappeared into a ball of white smoke.
Angele had no time to check on the others. He turned around and disappeared into flames as well.
A ball of flames appeared in the sky and Angele recreated his body. He floated in the air. White light flashed beside him and Becky appeared.
Angele saw some purple light flash in the sky—it was the woman with a ponytail; she helped Aria and Miray escape. The five wizards exchanged eye contact, but no one said a word. They all started flying in the opposite direction of the vine.
The white clouds below them looked like cotton, but none of the wizards was trying to fly into the clouds.
On top of the vine.
Alice landed on the platform slowly and the wizards of the Dark Wizard Tower quickly walked to her.
“Eliminate all the wizards that escaped the platform. They must die here! I’ll take care of the woman, she has the Eternal Dream and there’ll be nothing you can do.”
Balls of gray smoke landed on the platform, turning into three human beings.
“Master, sorry, we’re late.”
Alice shook her head. “I wouldn’t reveal myself if they didn’t have the Eternal Dream. Our members died because of me.”
She thought for a while and continued, “Fiona is a problem, but I think there’s another strong wizard that was trying to hide his power. Any volunteers?”
“I’ll go.” One of the men from the smoke stepped forward.
“Be careful, that one should have the same power level as Fiona, I think he’s also carrying secret items. The alliance didn’t put random people into their elite team, that man must be an important member to them,” Alice warned.
“Don’t worry, we’ll take care of him,” the smoke man responded.
Alice looked at Anchura as she said, “Good. Who’ll track the weak ones down? I think they teleported to the area above the clouds.”
“My pleasure.” Anchura smiled, he almost sounded like a different person in front of Alice. “It’s a pity that I can’t eliminate Fiona by myself.”
“You can have her leg if you’re fast.” One of the wizards chuckled.
“That’d be great.”
“Alright.” Alice clapped her hands. “Let’s move everyone. Just use the portal we built.”
The wizards of Dark Wizard Tower all disappeared from the platform.
Golden sunlight illuminated the sea of white clouds.
There were five small dots flying over the clouds. They looked like five flies that were flying over a peaceful sea.
Angele leaned forward, he was flying at full speed with red glow surrounding his body.
“How’s the situation?” A female voice echoed in his ears.
“Good, I’m not injured,” Angele responded using energy particles. “What about you? Is Aria alright?”
The woman with a ponytail scrunched her brow. “I fed her the pearl potion and she should be waking up soon, but…” Her sight fell upon Miray.
The upper half of Miray’s body was soaked in blood, it seemed like he was severely injured. The white armor on his body was glowing; it seemed like he was being healed by the armor.
Miray noticed that Angele was looking at him and smiled. “I was backstabbed by a wizard, but my core is not injured.”
“It’s great that you’re doing fine. The problem is how we return to the safe area,” Angele spoke in a calm tone. “We need Fiona to activate the portal, but—” He stopped for a second. “A strong being is tracking us down, we need to separate into two teams here.”
Miray and the woman with a ponytail also noticed the energy movement behind them.
“My name is Mira and I’m his sister. We’ll contact you if we can survive the attack,” the woman quickly introduced herself and sent her communication rune to Angele.
“Sure.” A rune that looked like a white flower appeared on his left hand. He also sent his communication rune to Mira. “Good luck.”
Mira checked the communication and said, “Good luck to you too.”
They exchanged eye contact and flew to the opposite side. There was no point to stay together in this situation.
Angele remained silent as he traveled thousands of meters. Becky was the only living being around him.
“What’re you planning?” Becky questioned in a cold tone. “You’re here to kill the elite members of the Dark Wizard Tower, right? You didn’t do anything during the battle and then you decided to leave the team.”
Angele did not respond to her words. There were blue light dots flashing in front of his eyes.
He finally stopped after flying for several minutes. He floated over the clouds and looked back. ‘He’s getting closer.’
Angele looked at Becky and said in a deep tone, “I’m counting on you.”
Becky thought for a second and shouted, “Damn it! Using me as your shield again?! Just kill me!”
“Come on, you’re my best partner.” Angele patted Becky’s shoulder.
“You…!” Becky gritted her teeth.
