The rain was heavy.
There were some small white houses on the empty ground among the vibrant green trees. The white houses looked like white flowers lying on a large green blanket and formed a line; they looked a bit blurry in the rain, but one could tell that they were all well organized.
There was a cave with its entrance blocked by some vines on a hill by the town. The vines were removed and a group of people wearing either black or white robes stepped out of the cave. The raindrops were hitting their robes hard—the noise was quite loud.
Angele overlooked the town below the hill through the gaps between the leaves.
“That’s the town you talked about, mother? It’s a good idea to stay in the town for now.”
The First Elder was walking in front of the team.
“This is the closest town we can find; we can study the scale when we have time. The only problem is the density of energy particles. Green, thank you for finding us a safe place to live.” He nodded.
“It’s my pleasure. My mother and I are both members of the Elemental Hand. I’m doing it for the organization,” Angele responded politely. He glanced at Vivian and noticed that she was smiling.
“Alright, let’s build some wooden houses here, we can check the situation of the town. We need to learn more about the environment.” The First Elder and the Second Elder started giving orders to other wizards in the team.
The wizards were asked to find the safest area around, purchase daily supplies, and learn about the local language. There were also wizards securing food and water sources. Also, numerous runes were set up as an alarm.
The wizards all had their own missions, including Fir.
Although the First Elder did not ask Angele to do anything, he still decided to help Mike, who was asked to find a safe place for the wooden houses.
He walked down the hill in the rain and started rethinking the whole thing.
He wanted to make sure that the Elemental Hand could leave the central continent safely and live a peaceful life with his mother. Angele’s life expectancy was long and he wanted to spend as much time as he could with his mother, however, he still needed to find a way to strengthen himself.
Angele stepped on the grass. He was not actually trying to find a safe location, he was just thinking about the future with his brow furrowed.
‘The Nightmare Realm will be separated from the wizard world sooner or later. I need to find a way to keep my ability to activate my refined true form. Without the power of the Nightmare Realm, I’ll be restricted by the realm power again…’
Angele glanced at Mike and the other wizard, they were all checking the surroundings in the forest.
‘This is my chance. I left the central continent with the organization and I’m far from the central continent. I can’t be dragged into countless wars by the sealed forms. The realm power of the wizard world will continue to pressure me and weaken me after the Nightmare Realm left.’
He knew the situation well.
‘If I want to solve the problem, I’ll need to find out the real reason why the realm power is pressuring me and how it works… Maybe I should collect some creatures from other realms and see what happens…’ he continued to think.
‘Zero, create a research subject and name it as Realm Power,’ he ordered.
‘Mission created… Collecting data… No information related to realm power is found… Do you want to increase the search range?’ Zero responded.
‘No. Pause the mission but update the progress when new data is collected,’ Angele responded. Everything returned to normal after some blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
Mike waved at Angele by a river and shouted, “Hey, I found a good place here! The river is nice and we can collect some food around it!”
Angele and the other wizard quickly walked to the river.
The twisted river was running down broken pieces of black stones like a white blanket. The grass and bushes by the river were vibrant and clean. Everything in the area was refreshing.
Angele jumped onto a rock and pointed at the river.
However, the flow of the river barely changed and Angele was surprised.
“Right, I forgot that the density of energy particles here is way too low…” Shaking his head, Angele smiled.
“I was thinking about this too…” There was a bitter smile on Mike’s face. His robe was soaked in water as he failed to block the splashes. “We relied too much on spells when dealing with basic things. What do you think, Air?”
The other wizard was a female white robe; there was a black scar on her neck. The scar looked like a centipede and it changed Angele’s first impression of the woman. “It’s understandable. The wizards of the central continent made the spells more practical by casting them to help with our daily lives. It’s a way to improve ourselves.” She stopped for a second and continued, “I’m a rank 2 wizard who focuses on water spells but I can barely gather the water on my palm without using the energy particles in my body.”
She pointed at the river, a string of water left the river and flew to the woman. The water string turned into a small ball of water quickly.
“In the central continent, if I release an energy-infused water string like this, I can easily destroy a small army. However, there’s barely anything I can do here….”
Mike tried to calm Air down, however, he looked a bit helpless. They started cutting down the trees by the river. They wanted to create an empty ground here for the wooden houses.
Angele helped them as well. Without casting any spells, they cut down the trees using their physical strength. Angele’s attributes were much higher than the other wizards’ so he decided to cut down the trees by himself and asked the other two wizards to build the wooden houses.
The rain slowly stopped after a while. The golden sunlight pierced through the dark clouds and landed in the forest. It was bright but still cold.
Angele quickly cut down numerous trees as he thought about the realm power. An empty ground was created without any problem.
He tried to cast spells, however, a rank 2 damage spell in the central continent only had the power of a rank 1 apprentice here. The spell could barely do anything, it felt like that the wizards were two ranks lower than they were here.
The good thing was that Angele’s power came from the bloodlines or he would be greatly impacted too. He felt like he was just a strong rank 1 wizard here and would have trouble recovering after using up all the energy particles in his body.
Most of the wizards decided to save the energy particles for critical situations and were using their hands to collect the things they needed.
The wizards were much stronger than mortals so they would not get tired easily. It only took them a couple hours to build more than 20 wooden houses by the river.
The wooden houses spread on the empty ground; they looked like large cubes. The wizards also built fences around the houses.
“That’s all we can do for now. We can build better houses later if we decide to stay here for a longer period.” Mike was satisfied with the small town they built and quickly sent the signal to the team.
Several minutes later, the other people brought the food they collected here. They also caught some wild boars and chickens. The wizards who went to the town returned with basic tools and condiments. They also learned the local language through some special spells.
The elemental spells were weakened but the spells that would affect people’s mind were still usable. The wizards acquired the knowledge of the language without any problem.
The three elders were still in the town, they wanted to learn more about the environment.
There were around 20 people in Elemental Hand’s team; they entered the wooden houses and retrieved their items from the magic devices. Also, they put their names on the houses that they selected.
Some of the wizards modified the houses to the way they liked.
Angele selected a house that was close to the forest and waited for the elders to come back.
The three elders finally came back following the signals left by the wizards when the sun started setting.
Vivian had a short conversation with others and walked to Angele’s house. Angele stepped out of his house to welcome his mother before she knocked on the door.
“Vivian, how’s the situation here? I only visited the dimension fissure the last time I traveled through the tornado and it’s my first time here,” Angele questioned.
They entered the wooden house together and sat down in the wooden chairs.
“We haven’t talked in a while. Too many things happened.” Vivian grabbed the cup from the table and sipped some water. “The water is not polluted by the energy radiation and tastes great.”
Angele peeked through the wooden window, the wizards all returned to their houses with their relatives. The Elemental Hand finally found a peaceful place to settle down. The members decided to live in this town they created with their families.
The First Elder and the Second Elder were talking with Fir but Angele was not sure what they were talking about. Outside the fences, the trees were marked with glowing red runes that would alert the wizards if anything happened.
“We’re safe now. What’s your next plan?” Angele questioned in a calm town.
“Plan? I’ve visited the town…” Vivian sighed. “All I could find were mortals. The mortals here are kind and it might be a good idea to settle down here. What about you, Green? You’re young and you probably don’t want to waste your time here.”
Angele chuckled. “No worries. I need a peaceful environment like this to solve my problem. An environment like this will help me think, also…” He stopped for a second and continued, “It’s nearly impossible for me to go back from a place like this. The density of energy particles here is way too low. I can build a portal or send my shadow back to the central continent. Magic circles are supported by the energy particles in the air, however, we have to rely on ourselves now and wizards can’t do anything without the energy particles.”
“Sadly, First Elder wanted to rebuild the organization in a remote area, but in an environment like this…” Vivian lowered her head and looked at the cup, she looked a bit depressed.
