Angele thought for a while and flew to the empty ground on the side. The empty ground was far from the battlefield, so he was not worried that he would be detected. He was certain that the patrolling soldiers would not be able to see that far.
The wind and snow were getting stronger. Angele could barely see any objects after he landed on the ground. The white snow was the only thing in his sight.
The chilling snow covered Angele and Becky’s bodies, they almost looked like two snowmen.
“Follow me!” Angele spoke in a deep tone. “The wind and snow here are strengthened by the wizards. I won’t be able to find you using mentality waves in this situation.”
There was a twisted path between two hills in the front. The path was covered in snow. A deep hole would be left on the ground every time Angele stepped forward.
Angele and Becky were advancing slowly.
“There should be some caves ahead; if they’re here, they’ll probably hide in those caves,” Angele said as he took out a yellow map.
The route on the map was changing constantly and the red marks on the routes were also changing. They turned into twisted red lines.
“How do you know that?” Becky questioned. She knew how she should communicate with Angele after all these days they spent together. She just needed to follow Angele’s orders when necessary and Angele would not get angry if she was disrespectful; however, Angele would play jokes on her sometimes.
“I have a friend that lives in this area.” Angele lowered the map.
“Although I don’t know why he responded so fast after I tried to contact him, it’s great that I can still find him,” Angele explained.
Becky stopped asking questions. They were advancing in the snow and increased their speed. Their footprints would be covered by the snow within minutes.
The snowflakes were brushing over their faces. Angele did not want to be detected so he did not cast any spells. It took them about half an hour to arrive at a cliff.
Angele stepped on the cliff and looked down.
Below the cliff was an area covered with small caves. There were a couple hundred caves down there; they looked endless.
Angele stopped. With a flick of his finger, he released a ray of blue light, leaving a blue trail in the snow. The blue trail was clear and eye-catching.
“Who’s there?!” A white robe appeared on the left of the two. The white robe was observing Angele and Becky carefully.
“I’m a friend of Mincola,” Angele responded in a calm tone.
“Dorman, calm down, he’s my friend!” A tall man stepped out of the snow. He was wearing white armor and his skin looked a bit dark in this outfit.
The man’s sight fell upon Angele.
“Long time no see, Green. You helped me the last time and I finally have the chance to pay you back.”
Angele remained silent, he was not sure how he should respond.
“Come in now. You’re almost an enemy to both the alliance and the Dark Wizard Tower,” Mincola spoke in a deep tone. “Follow me, I’ll take you to Suman.”
“Thank you for your help.” There was a bitter smile on Angele’s face.
The white robe named Dorman disappeared into the snow again.
Angele and Becky followed after Mincola. They walked down the hill and entered one of the caves.
The tunnel was dark.
“You already knew that I was once a member of the Dark Wizard Tower?” Angele asked as he walked.
“Of course. The Dark Wizard Tower released your information to the public and said that you were a traitor. I think the whole central continent knows about your situation since the rumor is spreading so fast. I think you brought some serious trouble to Elder Vivian,” Mincola responded. “What you did is much more eye-catching than what we did to the world altars.”
“Do you know how Vivian is doing now? Do you have any intel?” Angele was a bit anxious after he heard that.
“Price Evil Dragon is protecting Vivian, he’s one of the alliance’s leaders and things should be fine, but other members of the alliances are unhappy. They think that you’re the reason why the Fairy Realm is invading our world,” Mincola responded.
“That’s fine.” Angele sighed with relief.
The conversation ended as the atmosphere got heavy.
They advanced for around one hour in the cave and saw a bright campfire ahead. The flames of the campfire were dancing in the air.
There were several people sitting around the campfire. One of the men in white leather armor had long black hair and was cleaning a scimitar.
Angele also saw a woman wearing a short green skirt—she had to be Sella, Suman’s partner. They left Thousand Waterfall city together.
The other people were around 30 to 40 years old. There were a man and a woman sitting opposite each other. They had blank expressions and were wearing tight black outfits.
There were two long swords hanging on the woman’s waist and she was wearing silver bottom armor. She looked like a royal knight.
They all looked at Angele and Mincola after hearing the noise.
Suman stood up and asked, “Mincola, is he the man you talked about?” He looked at Angele and Becky with a pair of sharp eyes.
“You were just kids when I met you and Sella at the party.” Angele smiled and said, “You look like a great warrior now.”
“It’s you!” Suman’s expression loosened. “You helped us escape and won a fight against the rank 4 wizards. I’ve never forgotten what you did for me, Master Green.”
“Just call me Green. I assume that you already know why I’m here.” Angele glanced around.
The other people all stood up, but they looked confused.
“We need to plan this out, let me introduce my team members to you first.” Suman pointed at his friends.
“This is Bella, she’s a Blade Dancer.” He pointed at the woman with two long swords.
“This is Messiah, he’s an assassin.”
The man forced a smile on his face. “Nice to meet you.”
“You already know me and Sella. Also, I think you already met Dorman, he was in charge of the traps.” Suman pointed at the campfire. “Take a seat. We moved to this location not so long ago.”
Angele and Becky followed Mincola to the campfire. They sat down together and started cleaning the snow off their bodies.
“Green, greetings. I wonder what brings you here.” Sella’s voice did not change—it was still crisp and attractive.
Angele looked at the girl and checked the energy wave she was releasing. She had the same power level as a rank 1 wizard; also, her energy wave was a bit strange.
The Blade Dancer named Bella only had the power level of an apprentice, but she was releasing a mysterious energy wave. She was sitting with her eyes closed and it seemed like she was resting.
The assassin named Messiah had clean skin and, for some reason, reminded Angele of the people who were from the underground world. Most of the creatures in the underground had clean white skin due to the lack of sunlight. Messiah also had the power level of a rank 1 wizard, but it seemed like the golden dagger in his hand was a special item.
Mincola was a rank 2 wizard, but Suman was not releasing any energy wave. It felt like he was just a mortal.
Angele noticed the wrinkles around Suman’s eyes.
“Your body…” Angele did not respond to Sella, he just talked to Suman after checking his condition.
The atmosphere got heavy again.
A bright smile appeared on Suman’s face. “No worries. My life expectancy was greatly reduced because I used the concept gear too much. Maybe I’ll die earlier than other mortals, but it’s worth it. My life is more exciting than others’ and I have so many friends supporting me.”
The young man lightened everyone’s mood. Suman was different than before, he looked like a talented leader.
“So, why are you here?” someone asked.
Angele glanced around and his sight fell upon Mincola.
“Mincola, do you know why I’m here?” Angele questioned. He was the strongest wizard here.
No one knew that Angele was a rank 4 wizard, but Mincola probably noticed the difference.
“You’re here for the ruin of Dream Lord that is in the dimension fissure?” Mincola questioned.
Angele was a bit surprised, he had no idea what was going on, but he made it look like Mincola was correct.
“It has been a while since the last time I met you, but you’re correct.”
Mincola smiled; his white teeth were eye-catching.
“You’re a wanted man and I assume you did something that the Dark Wizard Tower didn’t like. Your mother is having a hard time in the alliance and you must be worried, so you want to help your mother by helping the alliance. The most recent event is the opening of the Dream Lord’s ruin. This is the best chance to redeem yourself.” He stopped for a second and continued, “I knew what you were trying to do when I received your message.”
“The shadow of the strongest ancient wizard, Dream Lord, is sealed in the dimension fissure. If the shadow is unsealed by the Dark Wizard Tower, the whole world will be in trouble.” Sella joined the conversation.
“According to the history, Dream Lord tried to conquer the world. If the shadow is unsealed, there’s a chance that Dream Lord will return to the wizard world. They sent soldiers into the ruins of other ancient wizard lords as distractions and their true purpose was to unseal the Dream Lord,” Suman explained in a deep tone.
“The true goal of the Dark Wizard Tower is to unseal Dream Lord?” Angele wondered. “The alliance is trying to stop the Dark Wizard Tower, so they chose to start the final battle here?”
“You’re right. The strong members of the alliance are heading to the battlefield.” Suman nodded.
“How do you stop the Dark Wizard Tower? Do you have a plan?” Angele continued to ask.
“We just need to destroy this world altar. They need the altar to open the dimension tunnel; if we can destroy the altar, the coordinates of the ruin will change. They won’t be able to find the next coordinates since they used all the resources they had. This is our plan,” Sella explained.
“Green, I learned that you were the leader of an elite assassin team, right? What exactly is this team?” Mincola suddenly asked. He was staring at Angele.
“Well, I…” Angele was a bit speechless.
“Wait! I remember him!” Messiah’s expression suddenly changed. He stood up and pointed at Angele with his dagger. “The elites who attacked us said that they were from the elite assassin team of the Dark Wizard Tower!”
The situation suddenly changed. Suman and his friends were looking at Angele like looking at an enemy.
Suman’s brow furrowed and Mincola was glaring at Angele with his eyes narrowed.
