Angele lined up the items on the counter and took out a complete set of rusty armor. The silver armor was covered with orange rust, it also came with a broken axe and a dirty crossguard sword.
He rubbed his chin after everything was put down on the counter.
“I think something is missing…”
He thought for a second and took out several poem books from the mirror. He quickly put them on the right end of the counter.
This pawnshop was Angele’s only source of income in the town. He purchased the valuable items that others no longer wanted and sold them for a higher price—the price difference would be his earning.
Angele had a long life expectancy and collected many things that he did not need. The pawnshop was a perfect disguise for him.
He lay down on the bed and covered his eyes with a random book after everything was done. He quickly entered the biochip’s database and started simulating the controlling of his bloodline power. Angele did not waste any time over the last 100 years, he had already improved the spells using the bloodline power. Only the sealed forms would know if he was using the bloodline power or just casting wizard spells.
One of his recent goals was to maximize the power and the controllability of his spells.
He organized all the damage spells he knew and abandoned the ones that he did not need. Angele ended up with three battle styles that fitted his three talent abilities: Golem, Lion Man, and Light Form.
He had to cast the spells separately before; after turning the spells into battle styles, he could easily switch to the best battle style during the fights.
The battle style system was extremely helpful for Light Form. He needed to control his energy accurately and efficiently when Light Form was activated. Although Angele was still one step away from Siva State, he still wanted to figure out a method that could help him maximize the efficiency.
He covered his eyes with a book because he did not want anyone else to see the blue light from the biochip.
More and more people appeared on the street. There were also carriages and teenagers who were heading to the training ground. Dogs, chicken, and ducks were also just left on the street by the farmers.
The dogs were barking from time to time and the chickens were also making noises.
“Hey, I’m here to do business!” A young boy with freckles on his face stepped into the shop. The boy’s eyes were big and his face was handsome, however, there was some dried mucus under his nose. There was also an egg-shaped birthmark on his forehead.
The boy was breathing heavily as he entered the door, it seemed like he ran to the shop from home.
“Hey, Andre! Are you here?” The boy raised his voice since Angele did not respond to him. He quickly tapped the surface of the counter several times.
Angele slowly moved the book away from his face and stood up.
“Tom, you again… What do you want? Marbles or snail shells?”
“I saved a lot of money this time! I want the crossguard sword!” Tom pointed at the sword.
“This is a legendary sword that has served Knight Uris for years. Knight Uris eliminated 18 empire knights on the battlefield during the war and the price for such a rare item is…”
“188 silver coins!” Tom interrupted before Angele finished the word.
“You know it already… Do you really want this sword?” Angele questioned.
Tom nodded several times.
“I, Tom Lori, will become a knight one day! This legendary weapon will be perfect for my journey! It’ll bring me the glory!”
Angele’s cheek twitched slightly.
“Fine…” He grabbed the crossguard sword and tried to clean the blade using a piece of cloth. He wiped the blade several times and the white cloth quickly turned dark.
Angele felt guilty that he was pretty much taking all the pocket money from the kid. Tom was the only son of Lord Lori, the one who controlled the town.
He grabbed the leather pouch from the kid and checked the number of silver coins. The leather pouch was quite heavy with all the coins in it. He then carefully handed the crossguard sword to Tom.
Tom held the crossguard sword like holding a treasure in hand.
“I’ll become a strong knight one day…” he muttered. It sounded like he was talking about his dream and cheering himself up.
Tom turned around and headed to the exit with the sword in hand. He suddenly looked back before leaving the shop.
“Andre, Vic said that there was a letter for you so you better go pick it up. Also, my father said that several knights from the church came to the town so you should hide your armor.”
Angele nodded and smiled. “Thank you, the letter is probably from Becky. I owe you one.”
“How about a gift?” Tom returned to the counter and smiled.
Angele watched Tom grow up. He wondered into Angele’s shop when he was around two years old and found many things that attracted him. Tom treated Angele’s shop as his treasure trove and found many “legendary” items here. He was almost 13 years old but he still liked those random items.
Angele’s smile turned gentle as he thought and he tried to pat Tom’s head.
“Don’t touch my hair! Akasha did my hair this morning!” Tom blocked Angele’s hand.
“Well, take this.” Angele thought for a while and grabbed a book with a red cover from the book, throwing it into Tom’s arms.
“You’re turning 13 soon, dress or battle skirt, you decide.”
Tom checked the book, it was a legendary journey of a nameless knight. It seemed like he liked the book a lot.
“Thank you! That’s a great gift!” He turned around and rushed out of the shop, it seemed like he was afraid that Angele would take the book back.
Angele chuckled as he watched Tom leave.
Tom was actually a girl and she loved knight stories a lot. Also, Tom was not afraid of Angele. Angele only had several regular customers, Tom was one of them. Young boys would be treated like girls and young girls would be treated like boys, this was a tradition in the town.
The red book Angele gave Tom read like a story but was actually written by Angele. He recorded the battle techniques on the book, his physical skills were stronger than Grand Knights’ and he had hundreds of years of experiences. The book would be a treasure to any knight that wanted to reach a higher level.
However, Tom needed to read the book page by page, Angele hid the techniques in the story.
Angele knew what it meant when the knights from the church visited the town.
The church hated the wizards the most and could eliminate all the wizards they encountered. They were not here to play games. They were probably here for Angele and Vivian.
The church treated rumors that were related to the wizards seriously.
Angele lay down again and rested for several hours.
He stood up and organized his coat. Angele wanted to have some lunch but Tom rushed into his shop again.
Tom changed his outfit, she was wearing a tight leather suit and it seemed like she was proud of her breasts even though there was barely anything there.
She was also wearing a pair of brown leather boots and a short gray skirt. Angele could see her slim waist and legs. She was quite attractive for her age.
She looked nothing like the boy Angele met in the morning.
“What do you think, Andre? Am I attractive to you?” Tom turned around, her head was around Angele’s chest. “Don’t fall in love with me.”
She looked excited. “Look at my legs, my skin, my breasts! I’m sexy, right? I’ve been treated like a boy my whole life and I can finally dress like a girl. Can you give me another gift? Look how cute I am.”
Angele was speechless. “Well, Tom, no, I think I should just call your girl name, Fra… I’m not interested in kids, you know.”
Fra was surprised, the smile quickly disappeared from her face.
“Ah!” Fra screamed, turned around, and rushed out of the shop, disappearing into the crowd.
Angele laughed and closed the door. He sealed the door using the wooden planks.
He suddenly looked to the center of the town before leaving.
An invisible energy wave was spreading in all angles—the energy wave was so invasive that it was pushing all the energy particles away but there was barely any energy particles in this area.
“The church…” Angele blinked his eyes and thought for a while. He just realized why the density of the energy particles was so low in this area.
In the forest outside the town.
There was a group of people traveling in the thin mist and they were heading to the town at full speed.
They were wearing luxurious silk cloaks and they were riding horses in the shadows.
The noise made by the hooves were deep and loud. Those people covered their faces with their hoods and lowered their bodies on the back of the horses. They were traveling so fast that their cloaks were flying in the air.
The knights in the front slowed down; there was a total of six people in the group. The hooves were still making noises.
“Loria is in front of us and I can feel the holy power of Alice,” one of the black cloaks spoke in a deep tone.
“According to the intel, there are two evil wizards hiding in the town, we need to eliminate them. With the help of the knights, it shouldn’t be a problem. Also, we should capture them alive so we can find more wizards!” The black cloak had a hoarse voice and he was speaking in a strange tone.
“Understood!” The rest of the team quickly responded. There were males and females in the team. They were all young and strong.
“Let’s go! The god is watching us, we shall not let any wizard escape!” The leading knight increased his speed and charged to the town.
The rest of the team followed the knight and quickly disappeared into the mist.
