“Hey, Andre! Where are you going?” A guard stopped them when they were heading to the exit. “It’s late at night, go back and sleep!” He waved his hands, asking Angele and Fra to leave.
“Wed, you’re in the patrolling team too?” Angele smiled. “This is a relative of mine, she came here to visit and I want to send her back. You know that the masters and knights from the church are here. I can’t believe that there are wizards in my town… I decided to find a safer place to stay for now.”
“Yeah, you made a wise decision, I’d leave the town with my family too if I had a choice.” Wed nodded and rubbed his nose.
“You’ll be examined at the bridge, we want to make sure that the wizards are still in the town. Alright, you can leave now. Just be careful, it’s late.”
“Sure, thank you.” Red light flashed in front of Angele’s eyes, he activated his illusion ability for a second.
Fra remained silent. They started heading to the bridge again.
They reached the bridge and saw what the examination was. It was a silver cup with clean water inside.
A red glow appeared on the surface of the water, however, he already activated his illusion ability, and no one saw the changes, including Fra. The guards did not say anything when they passed.
Angele grabbed Fra’s hand after the walked over the bridge and sent a message to Vivian using the communication rune.
“Take care of yourself. You should’ve left 100 years ago.” Vivian’s voice echoed in Angele’s ears.
“Don’t,” Vivian interrupted before Angele was going to send anything else. “You have a bright future. I don’t have enough energy particles to keep my appearance young; I don’t want you to witness me getting old.”
Angele remained silent and sent one last message.
“I’ll come back for you.”
He collected a lot of daily supplies for Vivian over the years, including the special grass that could block one fatal attack. The grass was gifted to him by Vivian but Angele did not need it anymore.
Vivian’s life was ending—that was why she decided to stay in the town. The First Elder and the Second Elder were in a similar situation, they all wanted to pass away somewhere peaceful.
“Let’s go.” Angele and Fra turned around. They stepped on the only path that could lead them to other areas of this world.
He knew that Vivian would feel better if he was not around when she got old; also, Vivian did not want to become Angele’s burden.
Fra looked at the town for one final time and started walking while dragging the case forward.
In a small house with a garden in the front.
Vivian packed up her belongs and outfits, standing by the entrance of the garden. She put a lot of efforts into the garden.
“Green wasted too much time on me… I should go and fulfill my last wish now…” she muttered.
The man with a handsome face and long hair never left her heart.
“Teacher, I’ll find you…”
She picked up the brown travel case, opened the gate, and disappeared into the darkness.
Seven days later…
The red leaves on the trees formed a large red carpet on the ground.
Under the bright sunlight, there was a caravan traveling down a path in the forest slowly. The caravan looked like a long white caterpillar.
The wheels of the carriages were rolling on the grounds, horses were neighing. The coachmen were whipping the horses from time to time.
On the last carriage of the caravan, there were two outsiders lying in it. The outfits they were wearing differed from the uniforms of the merchants. It was Angele and Fra. They paid to join the caravan and brought two brown cases with them.
The caravan was advancing slowly. A large lake appeared on their right after they traveled for a while; the water looked golden due to the reflected sunlight.
The red trees around the lake looked like a circle of red flowers; there were swans moving on the surface of the water slowly. There were also small birds following after the swans, the place was quite noisy.
The wind was nice and warm. Angele inhaled deeply, he could smell the fragrance of baked goods in the air.
“Fra, how many silver coins do we have?” he asked.
“We have 32 silver coins and four bronze coins,” Fra, who was lying in the carriage, responded quickly. “We spent most of our money to get on the carriage. If we don’t have a source of income, we’ll starve for over three months; there’s still a long way to go.” It seemed like she was still recovering from the death of her family but she felt better. She was now acting like a servant of Angele.
“Don’t worry…” Angele smiled. The sapphire ring in his pouch was vibrating slightly.
He knew that the ring was sending signals to the church; that was what he needed—he wanted to drive the people from the church away. However, it seemed like the signals were unstable, the ring would only release some signals sometime during the afternoon every day.
“It’s about time.” Angele took out the ring and threw it out of the window without being noticed by Fra.
The sapphire ring drew a line in the sky and dropped into the lake.
“Did you throw something outside?” Fra looked at the lake with confusion on her face.
“Nothing.” Angele shook his head. “What are you planning recently? You always go to the forest after finishing the food. Aren’t afraid of the wolves?”
Fra’s expression changed after hearing the word. “Nothing… I just want some private time.” She recalled the day she found the secret of the red book. Fra noticed that there was a hidden slot in the cover of the book and there was some old paper in the slot.
Fra realized that she finally encountered a situation like the knights in the novel would after she read the things recorded in the old paper.
A special training technique that she had never seen before was written on the old paper. Also, the name of the secret technique was “The Avatar of Love and Justice”.
Angele suddenly spat out the water in his mouth when he heard the response. He realized that he gave the technique a strange name for fun when writing it.
He quickly lowered the water bottle.
“Sorry, I wanted to laugh when I saw the anxious look on your face,” he apologized.
“Why would you find it funny?” Fra glanced at Angele and stopped talking to him.
Angele stopped making fun of Fra as well. The month of the tide would start tomorrow, he needed to find a chance to activate the dimension locator. If he could open the portal to finish the trade, the iron ingots in the mirror would be exchanged for the barrier he needed. Also, he found out the secret of the painting but he was not sure how he could enter the portal.
These two things had been bothering him for a while.
The black robes from the church were much stronger than he’d expected. He had to give up his house so he could no longer summon the creatures from other realms using the rune circle and rune walls he built in the basement. The only thing he could do was try to contact the six-armed snake race using the dimension locator.
Angele sighed as he reached into the pocket. He pressed on the silver tooth necklace, which was the dimension locator.
‘Communication mission started…’
‘Calculating the coordinates…’
‘Range exceeded… Trying to establish a connection…’
Angele closed his eyes and a black vortex that was spinning at full speed appeared in his sight. The vortex was formed by water but it was muddy and Angele could not see what was inside it.
Suddenly, the black vortex changed after a while.
The water in the vortex started boiling and there was some water splashing around.
A large book with a gray cover appeared in the center of the vortex.
The book floated on the water and opened by itself slowly.
A swordsman in red armor appeared on the left side of the page, he was holding a wide blade and a shield in hands. There was a glowing red rune on the center of the shield.
A strange blue bird then appeared on the right side of the page; the bird was surrounded by blue ice waves and had a strange voice.
They stood on the page quietly but would move their bodies from time to time.
‘What’s this?’ Angele had no idea what the dimension locator brought him.
He tried to communicate with the two creatures using the mentality wave.
The mentality wave did not find any physical form, however, a strange message was sent to his brain.
This was the only thing he received.
Angele knew what he just summoned after hearing the name.
World Book had endless information recorded in it; it was from a realm of books and knowledge. He just needed to pay for information and knowledge he needed.
However, how much he needed to pay would be decided by World Book.
“What do you want to know? I’m a book that can summon the fire swordsman and ice bird.” The book sent a message to Angele using the mentality wave.
Angele hesitated, he did not expect to communicate with a book from a realm that was full of books.
“I want to know how to establish a permanent connection with the realm of books.”
“You’re strong but you can’t afford the cost. Also, I don’t have the right to do that,” the book declined. “Do you have anything else to ask?”
“Do you know that I’m weakened by the realm power?” Angele questioned in a deep tone.
“Yes, you’re one step away from a new level. Also, you’re carrying the entrance to a labyrinth.”
“How do I reach the next level?”
“I can’t answer you because I don’t have enough information. You can try and enter the Realm of Lost, the eternal well there might be able to answer your question. However, don’t go near it if you can’t dance.” The book closed, the swordsman and the bird disappeared as well.
The book slowly sank into the vortex and disappeared.
Angele felt that his head was dizzy.
‘Warning! Warning! 75.3 percent of your mentality is consumed! Reason: Unknown. Please check your condition,” Zero’s warning echoed in his ears.
