Angele’s eyes narrowed and scanned the man’s body using the biochip.
“Lord of Ethereal, huh? Your mentality is strong,” he responded to the man’s word using mentality wave; however, the man’s condition was a bit strange.
The man had strong energy movements inside his body but he was not impacted by the realm power, it felt like that the man could resist the realm power naturally.
Angele was interested in this strong being that was from another realm.
“Let’s do a trade, strong being from another realm. I’m interested in the way you use your mentality wave.”
Angele’s message was a bit hard to understand since he was not good at sending messages through mentality waves.
He repeated the sentence multiple times and the lord finally understood what he was trying to imply.
“That’s not a problem!” The man flicked his finger.
“This is the first time I travel to another realm like this and what you’re asking is just a common thing to me so I’ll just gift you it.”
Angele noticed that the knowledge from the lord was sent into his brain through mentality waves.
“Thank you.” He quickly improved his mentality wave messages and the message was much easier to understand than before.
“Sadly, my spell can only keep you in this world for a short duration.”
The lord looked at the rune walls around him as his brow furrowed.
“It’s understandable, you can’t break the truth of the dimensions. Your realm and my realm are way too far from each other, it’s a miracle that you successfully brought me here.”
“As a payback, you can have this.” Angele threw a purple healing potion to the lord.
The healing potion traveled through the rune walls without any problem and the lord caught it safely.
“That’s some strong life energy force!” A surprised smile appeared on his face. “Thank you for your potion, my wounds will heal faster now.”
“You helped me too.” Angele smiled. He was not concerned about the healing potion, it was one of the weakest healing potions he had, but it seemed like the lord did not have something like this in his realm.
“Of course.” The man chuckled and disappeared into the air.
The smile quickly disappeared from Angele’s face as he started thinking.
‘Actually, I don’t need to put a lot of resources into this summoning spell, I’m just using the power of my bloodline… However, the creatures I summon will be completely random. The first creature can be killed by a mortal and the second one named Lord of Ethereal came from a realm with creatures that all have strong mentality waves. The mentality wave message technique he gave me was practical but that’s it. I want to summon a strong creature that I need… I wish the outcome of my summoning spell was not random.’
Angele was using the energy created by negative emotions as the fuel for the complicated rune circles. The rune circles changed the dimension rules and summoned random creatures from random realms using the realm power of a random realm.
There were so many random factors during the procedure and they were out of his control.
“Last time…” Angele inhaled deeply and repeated the procedure again.
Dark light flashed.
The fissure that was surrounded by the rune walls was still there. A one-meter-long tentacle of an octopus reached out of it.
The tentacle slowly moved out of the fissure; it seemed like the creature was trying to leave it. A strong and chaotic energy wave filled up the basement.
Angele stepped back and there was excitement in his eyes.
“Rank 6… That’s good enough!”
One of the suckers on the tentacle exploded and translucent blood splashed on the rune walls.
A strong and terrifying force field appeared in the basement, it was the realm power which Angele was familiar with.
“Great!” Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes as he stared at the tentacle.
*PA PA PA*
The suckers on the tentacle exploded one by one and the realm power was weakening the octopus every second.
The octopus’s voice sounded strange, its tentacle returned into the fissure.
After dark light flashed, the fissure disappeared and everything returned to normal.
The blue light dots stayed in front of Angele’s eyes for several minutes.
A row of information appeared in his sight.
‘Sample collected, analyzing…’
Behind the sentence, there was a white progress bar that was being filled up slowly.
“It’s about the time.” Angele checked the biochip and noticed it took him half an hour to do everything.
He could summon three random creatures in this specific month of the year.
“It’s great that I activated the realm power during my last attempt, otherwise I’d have to do it again next year. I hope I’ll get some valid results…”
He glanced at the gray platform, turned around, and walked to the exit of the basement.
Angele pushed the trapdoor open and flew out of the basement. He checked the house, opened the door, and headed to the town.
Most of the wizards were living in the town but they were hiding their true identity from the local residents. The local residents thought that the wizards were just mortals.
The First Elder asked the wizards not to do anything suspicious before they could explore all the areas around.
Angele walked down the hill and entered the town.
The town was surrounded by farms and there were yellow windmills in the farms. There was also a river by the town and the residents built a watermill over the river.
There were chubby middle-aged women washing clothes by the river. They chatted as their hands moved. Their children were playing with the water and looked happy.
There were also armored soldiers on horses patrolling the area. The muscular soldiers were carrying white shields and had swords or iron bows on their backs.
The bridge over the river was the only way that Angele could walk to the town. He stepped on the bridge and headed to the town.
“Green! Are you on your way to Vivian’s place?” A boy that was fishing on the bridge recognized Angele. The boy was around ten years and had short blond hair. The freckles on his face looked like sesame on a piece of toast.
Angele recognized the boy as well, it was a boy that lived close to Vivian.
“Jack, fishing again?”
“Do you want me to show you the way? Vivian is having a barbeque party on the other side of the town, I think you may need a guide.” The boy named Jack quickly organized his fishing equipment.
“Also, the merchants have arrived. They built a large tent in the town and they brought a circus here.” The boy blinked his eyes.
“That’s for you.” Angele chuckled and threw a small piece of silver to the boy. He collected the silver piece from a mine; it could be traded for several empire silver coins.
Two silver coins would get the boy a ticket to the circus and he could purchase some snacks while watching.
Jack smiled and caught the silver piece.
“Thank you, Green!” He collected his fishing equipment and walked down the bridge with Angele. They headed to the left side of the town together.
It took them a couple minutes to arrive at a two-story house with white walls. There was a spacious garden in front of the house, tables, chairs, and barbeque tools lined up on an empty ground.
Several wizards of the Elemental Hand attended the party. Some of them were drinking and some of them were barbequing, there were also people that were having conversations in small groups.
Fir and Vivian were chatting with smiles on their faces. They both noticed Angele’s presence.
“Welcome.” Vivian walked to the fence and hugged Angele. “Why are you always late? We already started because you were the only one that did not show up.”
“I had something to take care of.” Angele looked at Jack.
“Jack, do you want to have a drink here?”
Jack looked at Vivian but he was too anxious to talk. Angele could see his lips trembling.
“I… I… I…”
Two armored soldiers that were patrolling the street passed by and they shouted, “Jack!”
“Your father is looking for you. He’s angry, you should head home now!” the soldier in the front shouted.
“Sure, Ham…” Jack was surprised by the loud voice and quickly ran to the soldier.
Angele smiled as he was dragged into the garden.
The soldier named Ham watched the two black robes walk into the garden and talked to Jack in a serious voice, “Stay away from the outsiders, they don’t look like good people to me. Your father will be mad if he finds out about this.”
“But Green has always been kind to me…” Jack objected.
“No one knows what the black robes are thinking!” The other soldier sounded a bit drunk.
“The children in this town all like them for some reason, especially you and Ruby.”
“Alright, go home now. Your father is worried. Did you catch any fish today?”
Angele was dragged to Fir by Vivian. He grabbed a glass of green fruit wine from the table and took a sip. The fruit wine was sweet, fragrant, and refreshing.
“The First Elder is back with his group…” Vivian spoke to Angele in a low voice. “They’re in the living room, waiting for you.”
Angele nodded. “Alright, let’s go.”
Fir finished the fruit wine and put down the glass on the table. She nodded and entered the house first. Angele and Vivian followed after them.
The First Elder and the Second Elder were sitting by the fireplace in the living room. They smiled after seeing the three wizards walking to them.
“Sorry for interrupting the party. I had to gather you here. Alright, let’s start.” The First Elder looked at Vivian and she quickly locked the door. They walked to the two elders and sat down by the table.
Mike was also here, eating a meat skewer slowly. “You spent years exploring the area, I assume you’ve got everything sorted out.”
“Yeah.” The First Elder nodded. “Second Elder, I’ll let you do the talking.”
“Alright.” The Second Elder glanced around. “First Elder and I explored the area over the last several years. We tried to do it as fast as possible so we used a lot of our resources and finally have a general idea of the layout of this land.”
He cleared his throat and continued, “There are only mortals in the countries on this land. Their main forces are strong soldiers on heavily armored horses. There are no knights here but there are rumors of wizards going around. The rumors said that people here hated wizards and the kings treated the wizards as their enemies. They would burn the wizards they captured alive and some mortals were killed due to false reports.”
The wizards were a bit surprised after hearing the word.
“Which means… If they find out who we are, it’ll be a big problem?” Vivian questioned in a low voice.
“We’re just rank 2 or rank 3 wizards now and we can only cast weakened spells using the energy particles stored in our bodies. There’ll be consequences if we use up all the energy particles…”
Fir, Mike, and Angele remained silent. They did not expect something like this; it was lucky that they were living in a remote area.
“It’ll be hard for us to rebuild our organization… That might be the reason why we didn’t encounter other wizards in the last nine years… If we don’t return to the central continent, we won’t be able to collect the energy particles we need.” Fir was worried.
“The mortals can kill us if they send a whole army here.”
“Don’t worry, no one knows who we are as long as we don’t expose ourselves to the public. Also, we can return to the dimension fissure in the worst case,” Angele said.
“Some people already told me that they wanted to return to the central continent…” The First Elder sighed. “I gathered you here because I want to ask you if you want to stay here or return to the central continent. We don’t have enough offerings to send all people back.”
“It has been nine years but we don’t know what’s happening in the central continent… I think I’ll just stay here,” Fir spoke first. “My family died during the war and I don’t want to go back.”
“I don’t really care. I’ll just stay with my mother.” Angele shrugged and looked at Vivian.
Vivian hesitated and smiled. “We’ve already announced that we were leaving the central continent and I don’t think there’s a place for us there anymore. I think White City Alliance has already created another organization like the Elemental Hand and there’ll be a problem if we go back unless we hide in a remote area, but it’ll be the same as what we’re doing right now. I’ll just stay here I think.”
