Two hours later.
A ball of red flames was released from the sandstorm that was in front of the caravan. Angele recreated his body next to a bull.
The door of the carriage was opened right after Angele returned to the caravan, revealing Fir’s face.
“Master Green, how’s the situation?”
Angele smiled and nodded. “I found the entrance. Inform everyone that we need to start moving. The tunnel won’t last for too long and doesn’t appear often, so we need to travel through it as soon as possible.”
“Sure, I’ll let the elders know. They are sitting in different carriages with their relatives so I only need to inform them about the situation.” Fir looked relieved.
Angele jumped into the carriage and closed the door. The door of the carriage was protected by a wind-blocking spell. It was quiet inside the carriage but he could still see the furious sandstorm through the window.
He sat down by the window and grabbed the fruit wine from the table. The wine was slightly spicy and warmed his body up quickly.
Fir lowered his left hand and nodded. It seemed like she already sent the message out.
“Let’s get moving then.” Angle tapped on the table using his finger.
The bull started pulling the carriage forward slowly.
The caravan traveled at full speed for several hours and charged into the tunnel that was opened by Angele.
The place suddenly became silent after the caravan rushed into the tunnel. The wind and the sand were no longer making any noise.
The carriages were connected by a green chain, advancing in the tunnel at full speed.
“That’s the secret path you talked about?” Fir looked out of the window, surprised.
“Yeah… I found this path by accident,” Angele responded calmly.
He peeked through the closed window and saw that the carriage was surrounded by gray clouds.
The deeper they advanced, the darker the clouds became. It felt like the caravan was traveling through a tunnel made of clouds.
The dark clouds were boiling around the caravan, but none entered the tunnel.
They advanced for around ten hours.
Angele suddenly grabbed a wooden cup from the table and threw it out of the window.
The wooden cup hit the dark clouds and sank into it, but nothing happened.
“Inform the other carriages, we’re already inside the tornado. Tell them not to touch the clouds or they’ll be devoured by the wind,” Angele spoke in a deep tone.
Fir nodded, she was a white robe that had already mastered the communication technique. The energy waves were interrupted by the strong tornado but she could still contact other wizards. She could even do a better job than Angele, which helped a lot as no one needed to leave the carriages to receive messages.
The woman tapped on the table using her fingers and released some white energy waves. It only took her several minutes to finish the job.
“Keep advancing and increase the speed!” Angele ordered.
The speed of the carriages started increasing slowly and the noises made by the wheels were getting louder.
Vivian was sitting by the window, staring at the dark clouds.
“I can sense the great power around me; if the energy waves explode, they can easily destroy the whole caravan.” There was a serious expression on Vivian’s face. “I wonder how Green found this secret path.”
“I don’t know, but I trust him.” The First Elder was holding a diamond-shaped badge in his hand.
“Without this tunnel, it’s nearly impossible for us to survive the sandstorm. The energy waves from the tornado have the same power level has a spell casted by a rank 2 wizard and they are coming from everywhere. I can probably survive one glass hour in this environment. The three wizard lords didn’t find a secret path like this so they failed to explore the tornado,” he spoke in a low voice.
“You’re right.” Vivian nodded. “I wonder how long this tunnel is. Make sure that no one leaves the carriages. The carriages are protected by defensive spells, they’ll last for a while even if something unfortunate happens. Also, pay attention to the chains, it’ll be a disaster if they break.”
A white robe beside her nodded; the wizard was sending messages to other carriages. The energy waves the wizard released looked identical to the ones released by Fir.
“The Second Elder said that the chain has been reinforced. Don’t worry.”
“Good, then.” Vivian nodded. “Keep an eye on the surroundings. Although Green said everything should be fine, we still need to be careful.
The white robe nodded.
The carriages were connected by a green string, advancing at full speed in the tunnel. The path ahead was dark and the green light around the carriages was the only source of light.
Time passed, no one knew how long they had been advancing for. The color of the clouds ahead finally turned from black to light gray.
The noise made by the wind was not as loud as before.
In the leading carriage.
Fir looked surprised. “Are we on the other side yet?”
“Not yet.” Angele shook his head. “We’re reaching the end of the tunnel. The area ahead is the sandstorm area of the tornado but we’ve moved past the dangerous part and the wind won’t be too bad.”
“That’d be great.” Fir quickly informed the carriages behind.
Angele heard people from other carriages cheering after the message was sent out.
“I hope everything goes as planned.” Fir sounded relieved.
“Everything will go as planned, don’t worry,” Angele interrupted. “This secret path helped me survive during the war. If not for it, I would already have been dead.”
“You’re lucky if that’s true,” Fir joked.
“I’m always lucky.”
The carriages’ speed increased as they left the tunnel, charging into the endless sand.
The strong sand started hitting the carriages hard again loudly.
Angele noticed there were evil energy waves behind them as they left the tunnel.
The energy waves had the power level of a rank 6 wizard and were hard to detect. The one who released the energy waves was hiding in the dark and it seemed like he was trying to find the best chance to ambush the caravan.
Angele’s expression turned cold as red light flashed around his eyes. He released some black smoke from his right ear and the smoke moved through the window, charging to the source of the evil energy waves.
The force field was so strong that the monster hiding in the sand was having trouble handling the pressure.
The monster looked like a dog with three eyes and was more than ten meters tall. A scorpion that was formed by some black smoke was roaring above the monster’s head.
“I’ll devour you if you get closer!” The scorpion released some terrifying energy waves and the monster could barely move under the pressure.
The monster trembled and slowly started stepping away. Its eyes were closed and there was blood running out of them. Finally, the monster left the effective range of Angele’s force field, turned around, and disappeared into the sandstorm.
The smoke scorpion collapsed and returned to Angele’s ear.
“The elders said that they heard something.” Fir suddenly opened her mouth.
Angele smiled and explained, “Don’t worry. It’s normal here. I also heard strange noises the last time I was here.”
“Alright, I’ll send a message to the elders.” Fir nodded.
Three days later.
A smile appeared on Angele’s face as he noticed that the sandstorm was getting weaker and weaker.
The noise made by the wheels and the wind mixed together but it was no longer loud.
Angele stood up and opened the window.
Some warm golden light appeared in front of the carriage.
“The sunlight!” Fir woke up from the meditation. She looked relieved after seeing the golden light.
“We’re finally out!”
“You’re right, finally, we’re free!” Angele nodded.
The bull shouted. It seemed like the creature noticed that the area in the front was warm and safe. The bull charged forward and its speed was increasing gradually.
It felt like that the carriage went through an energy barrier.
The noise that bothered them for weeks disappeared. There was no noise from the wheels nor the wind. Angele could hear birds twittering and the area looked peaceful.
The golden light in his sight was getting intense.
Angele narrowed his eyes slightly and it took him a while to get used to the light.
There was a land that was covered with green grass in front of the caravan and there were small hills on it. The land looked like a large soft blanket.
The land was endless and there were white flowers mixed in the grass. Several black eagles were soaring through the sky. Angele could smell the fragrance of flowers and grass in the air.
The caravan slowly stopped, he jumped off the carriage and rubbed the ground.
The texture of the mud was wet and warm. Several ants climbed up his finger and moved around his hand. He could also feel the tiny stones in the soft mud.
Angele grabbed some mud and his finger turned brown. He put his finger into his mouth; the mud was bitter and fishy for some reason.
‘Comparing the soil… Energy content lower than average… The energy content in the soil of the central continent is 24 times stronger.’ Rows of data were displayed in Angele’s sight.
‘The man didn’t lie. The soil here is bad…” Angele stood up and glanced around. He was surprised by what he just saw.
On the far right of the land, there was an enormous gray scale standing quietly on the ground.
The scale was more than 3000 meters tall and looked like a mountain with its top in the clouds; also, there were several white birds rotating around the scale.
More and more people got off the carriages. They also saw the gray scale on the far side and they were all surprised. The scene was so strange that no one knew what to say.
“Who would build a scale like that for no reason?” The First Elder wondered. The Second Elder and Vivian were standing beside him. They were speechless after seeing the scale.
