“Vivian… There’s no point for you to sacrifice yourself for the organization!” The First Elder narrowed his eyes. Silver scales that looked like fish scales appeared on the surface of his body. “The elder council shall fight together until the last second.”
Vivian closed her book and stared at the campfire, but did not say anything.
“Come on, Vivian, we’re members of the Elemental Hand. We can still fight even without the Legacy Magic Circle,” the Fourth Elder spoke in a deep tone.
“The Fourth Elder is right, the elder council never feared death.” First Elder smiled. “In the worst case, we can move somewhere safe and rebuild our organization. Just like Henn, she…” The First Elder hesitated, he realized that he should not have mentioned Henn’s name.
“Don’t worry, I’ve already made myself forget about that incident.” Vivian smiled.
The First Elder stood up and patted her shoulder. “Get ready, I’ll gather the team. Fourth Elder, come with me. Let’s give Vivian some time.”
“Sure.” The Fourth Elder stood up and patted Vivian’s shoulder as well.
They turned around and moved to the tent on the left.
Vivian sat by the campfire alone and started thinking. She knew that it was nearly impossible for the Elemental Hand to survive in these chaotic times. The Dark Wizard Tower would eliminate as many organizations as they could and the Elemental Hand was one of their main targets.
Also, Vivian was worried about Green.
If they made one more mistake, the elder council of the Elemental Hand would be destroyed. The Elemental Hand had some problems with the wizard lords and they were in an awkward position. If Prince Evil Dragon did not offer help, the organization would already have been destroyed by the Dark Wizard Tower.
Although Vivian had no idea why Prince Evil Dragon decided to offer help, Prince Evil Dragon was their last hope.
The elder council was in danger and Green was nowhere to be found. It seemed like the situation could not get any worse.
Suddenly, she felt like there was a man with a phony smile on the face standing in front of her.
“Vissman, I wonder what you’d do in this situation…” She sighed and lowered her head.
“I’m tired… Really tired…” she muttered.
A tall burning tree fell onto the snowy land. Red flames landed in the blood rivers, barely visible. White steam was rising from the land due to the evaporation.
The burning noise was loud and the area looked like a red sand plate. The monsters on the ground looked like tiny sesame seeds. There were people groaning.
In the dark sky, Angele was floating under the blood sun, overlooking the area.
“I assume everything is ready.”
A golden shadow appeared beside him—it almost looked like the man’s body was made of gold. The golden man was also floating in the air, glancing at the ground.
“This area is pretty much cleared,” the man responded in a low voice. “What else do you need? I’ll deliver the message so that we can focus on our targets.”
Angele looked at the golden man and pointed forward.
He released some dark smoke and created a mirror.
The face of a woman with long blonde hair appeared in the mirror.
“Make sure she’s safe. The energy movement is too intense right now and I can’t locate her. Inform your soldiers, this woman shall not be hurt. Also, fulfill all her requests,” Angele responded.
“What’s the point?” The golden man sounded impatient. “You said this many times. If that’s all you need, I’ll go stabilize the channel. The battle damaged the channel slightly and I need to make sure that it’s stable.”
“You still need to widen the channel, right? Have you used all the souls I collected?” Angele’s brow furrowed. “How long do we need to guard the channel before the other lords arrive?”
“We’ll be able to summon the other lords with the souls you collected and the fresh souls from the battleground. Also, the channel will be fixed. I think it’ll take several blood hours until everything is done,” the golden man responded after thinking for a while.
“Sounds good. I’ll wait until the channel is fixed and the lords are summoned.” Angele stopped for a second and continued, “We’ll conquer two realms when the channel is completed.”
“Yeah, as long as the realm guardian doesn’t show up.” The golden man finished his sentence and disappeared into golden light.
It was night.
In the forest beside Rayton Highland.
There was white light in the tents that were built in the forest; armored wizards were patrolling the area.
Inside one of the tents, the orange light from the fire was warm and bright.
A gentle man with a handsome face was sitting on one side of the table and staring at Vivian.
“Elder Vivian, you’re not kidding, right?” The man was happy and excited.
“I’m not.” Vivian nodded. “Master Valla, I heard that you have the right to decide which organization can enter the garden.”
“You’re right.” Vivian nodded. “My father asked me to make the decision. You’ve accepted my offer and I’ll make sure that all members of the Elemental Hand can enter the garden.”
Vivian hesitated for a second and continued, “I’m not talking about that…”
Vivian lowered her head and her long blonde hair almost covered her face.
“I know this might sound ridiculous, but I want you to do me a favor.”
Valla was a bit surprised. “Just say it. Your trouble is my trouble and I’ll do everything I can to help you.”
Vivian remained silent.
Valla and Vivian were the only two people in the warm and spacious tent.
Valla was waiting patiently. He grabbed the wine glass from the table and sipped some fruit wine. He was glancing at Vivian’s face and upper body; although he tried his best to stay calm, it was obvious that there was desire in his eyes.
Vivian finally opened her mouth. “Can you help my son enter the garden? It’s just one extra person and that’s all I need.”
“Your son?” Valla’s brow furrowed. “Vivian, you need to reconsider the situation. I can only take a certain number of people into the garden and there are too many of them. My father gave me the right so I can help the Elemental Hand, however, it’s impossible for me to save a position for someone that is not even here. If the wizards find out what I’m doing, there’ll be serious consequences.
“The wizards will remain silent if there’s no position left. The situation is getting worse every second and there’s only so much I can do,” Valla explained.
“I know I’m being unreasonable…” Vivian lowered her head. “I’ll do as whatever you say if you can help my son.”
The two suddenly stopped talking.
Valla scrunched his brow again. It seemed like he was reconsidering the situation. He tapped on the table slightly after several minutes.
“I can’t do it, there’s no way that I can hide it from the public. I want to help you, but…” He sighed and continued, “You haven’t found your son yet and I can’t promise you anything.”
“Can you find another way?” Vivian bit he lips slightly.
“There’s only one way…” Valla finally loosened his expression. “We need to get married as soon as possible so that I can save the position for your son using my father’s name.”
“I’ve already accepted your offer and I’ll keep my promise!” Vivian responded in a deep tone.
“I understand what you’re thinking, and I know that you won’t lie to me. We’ll get married sooner or later, but the problem is the public. They’ll keep their mouths shut if we’re officially married.” Valla opened his arms and shrugged.
The atmosphere in the tent got heavy.
Vivian bit her lips and remained silent.
“One more thing, Vivian. I’ll be leaving tonight,” Valla suddenly added.
“You’re leaving tonight?”
“Yes, my father sent a fast airship to pick me up and I’ll be going back to the garden first. Why don’t you return to the garden with me tonight if you can make up your mind? I’ll save the position for your son right in front of you, what do you think? Also, my father has the same thoughts as me.”
“What did Prince Evil Dragon say?” Vivian was surprised.
“Well, my father just replied to my message regarding the relationship between us. He said that we should hold the wedding as soon as possible. It’ll be perfect if you can finish it tonight.”
Valla took out a black box form his pouch and opened it carefully.
A ray of white light was released from the box, then rotated above the table and formed a white light screen. A bird in a golden bird cage appeared on the screen several seconds later.
“Valla, I’ve received your message. This is a critical period and you need to hold your wedding as soon as possible. We don’t have much time for this. I’ve talked to Vivian and I think she’s the perfect woman for you. Complete the wedding and don’t invite too many people. The alliance just took a huge hit and you need to make the wedding as simple as possible,” the golden bird spoke in a high-pitched tone.
‘He’s not lying… It’s Prince Evil Dragon…” Vivian looked at the light screen and checked the energy wave. She found it a bit hard to believe.
“Alright, I’ll return to the garden with you tonight, however, please keep your promise.” There was dedication in Vivian’s eyes. She stood up, turned around, and slowly walked out of the tent.
