Somewhere in the forest by the entrance of the highland.
“Hurry! Hurry! We need to move!”
On the green grass, there were teams of armored wizards crossing through the forest, holding short wands in their hands.
Their bodies were floating in the air and their faces were covered by big white hoods.
“Hurry up, everyone! We need to reach the main world altar in two hourglasses. Our forces need our help!” The leading wizard had a long white beard and he was shouting in a loud voice; the birds in the forest flew away as they thought it was a beast that was roaring.
The team lined up and increased their speed. They were traveling in the opposite direction of the highland.
There were more than one team in the forest and there were hundreds of wizards traveling to their destinations.
The teams were around ten meters away from each other and people were shouting all the time. The forest was quite noisy.
The last team had around six wizards in it.
Five of the wizards in the team had sigils that looked like a golden palm on their chests—the golden palm was the sign of the Elemental Hand.
“Captain Andorra, are we late or something? I thought we’d be leaving much earlier.” The First Elder of Elemental Hand was also in the team. The bald man looked tired and was slightly injured, it seemed like he’d just got through an intense battle.
The captain named Andorra shook his head. “I don’t know. Prince Evil Dragon gave the order. I assume he has a perfect plan and we just need to follow it.”
He was holding a black plate with a blinking green light dot on it. The plate was a magic device that would lead the team to the destination.
“We appreciate the help Prince Evil Dragon offered, but we don’t want to hide when the whole central continent is fighting the Dark Wizard Tower. It’s just not what we do.” The First Elder sounded disappointed.
“That’s right. The Elemental Hand never fears battles!” The Second Elder interrupted.
“Elder Vivian’s Watchers already joined the battle, right? It’s not like you’re not part of the war,” Andorra explained with a bitter smile on his face.
Vivian was in the middle of the team and was a bit speechless. She arrived at the highland and was about to join the battle, however, Prince Evil Dragon ordered her to help the other elders of the Elemental Hand. Those elders were far from the battlefield, so she had to travel back to them.
That was the reason why the Watchers were still fighting but Vivian was not on the battlefield.
“Calm down now. Prince Evil Dragon must have a valid reason for that,” Vivian said.
The wizards were advancing at full speed but none of them was out of breath while talking.
Andorra sighed with relief, the other organizations would be happy if they did not have to fight on the battlefield, but elders of the Elemental Hand thought Prince Evil Dragon was looking down on them.
The First Elder and the Second Elder were a bit short-tempered. Vivian was the only one here to lighten the mood.
“Alright! Let’s take a rest here.” Andorra suddenly lowered the plate and send words through energy particles.
“Resting again? We had some rest two days ago. Wizards are different from the mortals. We can at least advance for three days without resting!” The First Elder was getting angry again.
“Calm down, First Elder.” The Fourth Elder was wearing a black robe under the white armor. “Our armies already arrived at the battlefield and we’re definitely helping on the battlefield.”
The First Elder glanced at the Fourth Elder. “The commander of the White Eagle and all of our Soul Masters are fighting at the front line, but we’re left behind. We’re much older than those kids and we should be the ones fighting.”
“What about the White City Alliance? How are they doing?” The Fifth Elder tried to change the topic. Without the Legacy Magic Circles, the elder council no longer had the power to change the outcome of the battle and some of the small organizations that worked for the Elemental Hand already left.
“The White City Alliance is working with the Black Earth, they formed an army that is under Mirror Lord’s order. Cities that were not invaded like Mermaid’s Song and Titan’s Honor joined their side, including the wizards. Elder Council is only supported by the Academic Power and the Watchers. Most of the elite soldiers from the Wind Valley and the Golden River were eliminated during the battles,” the Fourth Elder explained. “Fifth Elder, I think your Wanderer’s Farm is still working for us.”
Fifth Elder hesitated for a second after hearing that. “Well, Wanderer’s Farm has joined the White City Alliance. Without the Legacy Magic Circle, there’s nothing I can do.”
The elders remained silent, they knew this day would come when they left their territory, but they still felt a bit sad.
“Without the Legacy Magic Circles, we still have the Zero Plant Ball. We’re stronger than average rank 4 wizards, we should be fine.” The First Elder forced a smile on his face.
No one responded. Andorra was sent here by Prince Evil Dragon and decided to stay away from the five elders. He was just an average rank 4 wizard and had no idea what the elders were talking about.
Although the elders had a special item called Zero Plant Ball, they were just top-level rank 4 wizards and there were stronger wizards in the alliance. They could not do anything without their Legacy Magic Circles.
“Let’s stop it here and have some rest.” The Fifth Elder sighed.
The team slowly stopped and the wizards started cooking.
The sun was setting and it was getting dark outside.
Vivian and the Fifth Elder were sitting beside each other in front of the campfire. The long blonde hair trailed over her shoulders and she looked worried.
Several young wizards from a different team walked to the campfire with a plate full of fruits.
“Elder Vivian, we found some wild fruits in the forest and they taste great. Do you want to try?”
A handsome male wizard walked to the campfire as well; he noticed what Colin was holding and said, “Colin, where did you find those fruits? You’ll get diarrhea if you’re not careful enough. I think there are many single-eyed beasts in the area.”
“I tried it myself and I made sure they’re edible. What are you talking about, Vincent? I thought we agreed that this should be a fair competition.” Colin sent his voice through energy particles.
“I’m not trying to make you look bad. I’m just worried about you, come on.” Vincent’s brow furrowed.
The other one glanced at the two, he walked straight to Vivian and sat down.
“Vivian, are you worried about Green?” This man was elegant and attractive, he sounded like a scholar.
“Yeah…” Vivian nodded. “Before Green came back to me, I’ve never had such feelings. I’m scared and I don’t what I will do if something happens to Green….”
“Don’t worry,” the man spoke in a gentle tone, “my father is the commander of the alliance’s air force. With him at the front line, Green will be fine.”
“Is this what Prince Evil Dragon said, Valla?” Vivian forced a smile on her face.
“Yes. My father… thinks that Green is someone he can trust.” Valla nodded, he wanted to hug Vivian after he saw a hint of weakness in her eyes.
“Don’t worry, with my father’s help, Green will be fine.” He slowly put his hand on the back of Vivian’s right hand.
“Tell your father that I appreciate his help.” Vivian moved her hand away with a blank expression on her face.
Valla stood up and spoke in a gentle tone, “Sure. Alright, I have something else to take care of right. Don’t think too much. You need to focus on the mission.” He watched two angry young wizards walk to him.
Valla glared at the two young wizards with a smile on the face, he turned around and walked to another team.
“You!” Colin was enraged, he almost threw the fruits away and charged at Valla, but he was stopped by Vincent.
“Calm down, did you forget what Ana told you?” Vincent sent these words through energy particles.
Colin’s body trembled after he heard that name.
He gritted his teeth and said, “One day, I will…”
They looked at Vivian, who was sitting by the campfire, and remained silent.
Colin walked to the campfire and put down the fruits carefully. Vincent took out a tube of fruit jam and put it down by the fruits.
They decided not to say anything since Vivian was just staring at the campfire. They left the campfire and returned to their own teams quietly.
The fire faded and the temperature decreased after a while. Vivian looked at the fruits and fruit jam. A smile finally appeared on her face.
The Fourth Elder sent some words to Vivian through energy particles.
“Vivian, you don’t have to talk to Valla. The Elemental Hand will be fine even if we leave Prince Evil Dragon. We can join the other two commanders.”
“It’s fine.” Vivian shook her head slightly.
“You’re still talking to Valla because of Green, right?” The Fourth Elder sighed.
Vivian hesitated for a second and smiled. “Green was working for the Dark Wizard Tower and now his information was released to the public. The alliance and the Dark Wizard Tower are all going after him. He’s in trouble and Prince Evil Dragon is the only one helping us.”
She was forcing the smile on her face.
“I’ll do whatever I can to help Angele.”
“You’re still bothered by the things you did years ago…” The Fourth Elder closed his eyes slowly.
Vivian remained silent. She recalled the days she had with Henn’s partner. The man was so attractive that she just could not give up.
She backstabbed Henn because of that man and almost gave up everything for that man. Angele thought Henn was lying to him when he heard the story.
However, she still failed and returned to the Elemental Hand.
The two elders stopped talking. The dancing fire was the only thing disturbing the silence.
