The smile slowly disappeared from Angele’s face as the man pointed at him with a dagger. “You’re right. I was the one that sent the assassins. However, I’m no longer the team leader. Don’t worry.”
He started explaining, “We were working for different organizations and I had to send those assassins.”
Angele knew that he needed a good excuse because he did not want to fight. Suman and his team survived multiple assassinations, they had to be stronger than they looked.
“Mincola is my friend. Do you really think that you can escape the assassinations by yourself? You know that you would be dead already if the team was not led by me, right? The reason why I betrayed the Dark Wizard Tower is not just my mother.” Angele looked at the campfire calmly as he explained.
“If you really can’t trust me, I won’t explain any further. I’ll leave and you can treat it like we’ve never met.”
Suman remained silent for a while and his expression finally loosened. He looked like his team members.
“I trust you, but several of our team members were killed by the assassins…”
“Do you know Count Wheat? I don’t like him at all and the main force was sent by him. There were some elites in my team that never followed my orders, like Victoria.” A bitter smile appeared on Angele’s face. He was talking nonsense. Angele made it look like that he hated the Dark Wizard Tower and his elite team never followed his orders. He sounded like he was a spy that was sent to the Dark Wizard Tower by the alliance.
“Come on, let’s all calm down. We would already be dead if Green was not the leader of the team. Green helped us and we should not go too hard on him.” Sella smiled and tried to help Angele.
Bella and Messiah looked at Suman.
Suman remained calm, he stared at Angele for a while and said, “You’re right, Sella. We thought that we escaped the assassination because we were lucky, but it seems like Green was the reason why we survived and we should thank him for that.”
“Our goal is the same. We need to figure out a way to stop the Dark Wizard Tower.”
“We should have some rest and head to the world altar in the afternoon.” Suman sat down and returned his scimitar into the sheath. “Let’s just rest for now.”
Messiah slowly lowered his dagger and sat down, but it seemed like he still did not like Angele.
Angele was still smiling, he sat down by the campfire and it looked like that he was thinking about something.
Becky had a blank expression on the face, but she knew that Angele was lying.
The thunder almost made the whole cave shake.
Suman suddenly stood up. “Sella, what happened? Contact Dorman now!”
Sella quickly took out a fist-sized crystal orb and rubbed it slightly. White light flashed on the orb, but it disappeared quickly and nothing happened.
“I can’t, the energy wave outside is too strong and I can’t get in touch with Dorman!” Sella spoke anxiously.
“Messiah, go check the situation. Get ready everyone!” Suman looked at Messiah.
“Sure.” Messiah nodded and he was about to head outside.
“Don’t.” Angele pointed at the crystal orb. “I can check the situation using the orb.”
He smiled and rubbed on the surface of the crystal orb. Shifting images were quickly displayed in the orb.
On the snow land, hundreds of knights in white armor were charging to an eagle with two heads on the other side.
One of the eagle’s wings was injured. It was trying to attack the knight using the other wing. The knights were blown away one by one. The knights would be injured or killed every time the eagle swung its wing.
The eagle’s body was surrounded by dark smoke and its red eyes looked like two spinning vortexes.
“An abomination eagle! One of the war beasts from the Dark Wizard Tower. The knights probably followed the eagle here. The war started!” Messiah said.
“What should we do, Suman?”
“We should move now! The Dark Wizard Tower’s defense is weak right now and this our chance!” Suman spoke in a deep tone. “Green, do you want to go with us?”
Angele was a bit surprised, he thought Suman was not going to let him join the team.
“Of course, we have the same goal.” Angele grabbed the crystal orb.
“I wouldn’t be here if I can find the route myself.”
“With Green, we’ll have a much easier time to win the fights and complete the mission.” Mincola was relieved.
“Good. Let’s start moving now!” Suman aimed at the campfire. The fire was frozen and extinguished quickly.
Angele narrowed his eyes, he had no idea what Suman did. There was no energy movement at all, it almost looked like Suman extinguished the fire using his hand, but he did not understand why the fire was frozen for a second.
The team started moving out of the cave quickly.
Angele stayed in the center of the team. It seemed like Suman and his teammates had not fully trusted him yet.
The Blade Dancer was right beside him. The woman was around 30 years old, she did not talk a lot and her hands were on the handles of her swords.
They left the cave and met Dorman safely. Sella sprinkled some powder in the air and Messiah span the ruby on his golden dagger several times.
The team quickly disappeared into the air like they were never here.
Mincola chanted the incantation and their bodies were lightened greatly. It was a simple but effective spell.
“Leave no trace behind,” Suman warned. “Mincola, explain our route to Green when we’re moving.”
“Sure, no problem.” Mincola moved to Angele and started explaining through energy particles.
The team was moving to the opposite direction of the battlefield. The only thing making noise was the wind and the heavy snow covered the thin footprints they left on the ground.
The team went around the abomination eagle and rushed to the right. The fighting noise slowly faded away, Suman stopped and entered a cave.
Angele learned about the route through the information Mincola sent him.
“You mean there’s a sewer built by the ancient wizards? That’s new… Are you saying there’s an ancient city under the ground?” he questioned.
“This is one of the legendary cities, the City of Dream.” Mincola moved as he explained, “Dream Lord had a battle with two other wizard lords and destroyed this city. The whole city sunk into the ground after the battle.”
Angele hesitated for a second and looked at the sky before they entered the cave.
Under the white clouds, there were black flying mounts fighting against white flying mounts. Feathers and bloody flash were falling. There were also countless energy explosions in the sky. The wizards kept summoning storm elementals and wind elementals.
In the center of the sky, a man in black and a man in white were hitting each other while releasing translucent energy waves. The intense energy movement drove the clouds away and it almost looked like there was a hole in the sky.
“What happened?” Mincola turned his head around and the others also stopped.
“Nothing, I just want to look at the sky… for one last time.” Angele glanced at the sky, turned around, and ran to the team.
They advanced for around ten minutes in the cave and passed through a large spider web. They entered a room with glowing blue walls.
Suman stepped into the room and checked the walls. “It’s just normal glowing substance.”
“Is this the first time you’re here?” Angele suddenly asked.
“Yes, why?” Suman looked at Angele, he was confused.
“Be careful, everyone. This wall is…” Angele noticed that there was an incense table behind a door on the left, covered with white spider webs.
He pointed at the incense table and released a ray of red flames.
The flame landed on the table.
The walls started burning, it looked like the flames ignites all the walls. The flames in the room were intense and they could barely see the blue glow.
Suman and his team quickly stepped out of the room.
Sella hesitated for a second and said, “This is the… tunnel guard?”
A stone pillar appeared on one of the burning walls and the stone pillar formed a blue flower bud.
The flower bud was surrounded by red flames and slowly blossomed. The flower petals of the blue flower were translucent. A human eye and a mouth appeared in the center of the flower.
“Password required.” The flower was speaking the universal ancient language.
“What does it mean?” Suman and his team had no idea what the flower was talking about.
Angele was a bit speechless, he was not sure why password was required here.
He stepped forward and explained, “Password is a code or some specific words. You’ll need it to pass this area or you’ll be attacked.”
“A code…?” Suman started thinking.
“Stone wall,” Bella suddenly said.
“Yeah, it must be stone wall!” Suman clapped his hands. He was excited and said some words in a strange tone that sound it was from a monkey.
The flower spoke again, “Password correct. You can pass now.”
The flames in the room extinguished as the blue glow faded away. The blue flower was also absorbed by the wall.
“Let’s move!” Suman said and walked to the exit on the other side of the room.
“Thanks for your help.” Sella walked to Angele and said, “We might still need your help later…”
“No worries. We’re pursuing the same goal now.” Angele smiled and stopped talking
