‘Seriously?’ Angele quickly stopped sending out mentality waves. The black vortex slowly disappeared and there was nothing left in his sight.
“Ugh…” He groaned and shook his head.
“I think I caught a cold. Fra, can you go buy me some herbs from the merchants?”
Fra was lying beside him but it seemed like she was thinking of something.
“Fra?” Angele repeated, he just wanted to use an excuse to get some private space.
“Oh, sure. I’ll go now.” Fra finally heard the word. She sat up and jumped off the carriages. The merchants were in the front so she had to run past several carriages.
Fra quickly disappeared from Angele’s sight. Angele slowly took out the silver tooth necklace from a pouch.
‘Only certain creatures can be summoned during the month of the tide. They must have high mentality or strange mentality wave frequency so I can find them.’
He returned the necklace to the pocket carefully and started meditating so that his mentality could recover.
Black smoke came out of his mouth and entered his nose. Several seconds later, the black smoke slowly faded away.
Fra returned to the carriage with a gray leather pouch in hand; she saw that Angele was sleeping so she tried to be as quiet as she could. She slowly put the pouch down on the wooden case beside Angele.
Time passed and the sky turned around orange to dark.
The caravan slowly stopped by a forest. The carriages in the front formed several circles and set up the campfires.
The merchants were eating freshly baked brown bread with barbequed meat and mushroom soup around the campfire. They were drinking and chatting. There were also people watching the guards of the caravan wrestle.
Angele applied some special herb mixture he created on Fra’s face after they left the town. No one would know that she was the wanted “boy”. She was watching two female guards wrestling with a female guard she became friend with recently.
The people around the wrestling guards were all cheering.
Angele leaned against the wall and watched the two strong female guards fighting against each other.
The one on the left had short brown hair, she roared and used her strong arms to throw her opponent to the ground.
“Next!” She spat some saliva on her hands and rubbed her palms against each other while glancing around.
“I’ll be the next!” A strong man stood up and took off his black vest, revealing his muscular body. He straightened his back and stepped forward.
The orange light from the campfire illuminated the two guards’ muscles as the match started.
Angele shook his head; he was not interested. Suddenly, blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes. He quickly turned his head around and looked at the other side of the lake. There were some people wearing silver that were hiding in the darkness. The one in the front had faster movements than others and was holding two swords that had different length in hands.
“They are here,” Angele muttered and glanced at the people around the campfire. Fra was still focusing on the wrestling.
Angele stood up and jumped off the carriage, he walked straight to the lake.
He walked through the small forest and reached the lake. The noise from the camp faded and the area was dark.
The sun was still setting so he could still see some color on the clouds.
Angele looked at the other side of the lake and the people wearing silver also noticed his presence.
“I can use my wizard power now…” Angele smiled and stepped on the surface of the water.
Waves appeared when he stepped on the water but he was not sinking at all.
The expressions on the silver swordsmen’s faces changed.
The leader signaled using his swords.
“It’s a strong one! Everyone, use the hunting formation!” he shouted as some gentle white light was released from his sapphire ring.
The swordsmen in silver armor formed a shell-shaped formation by the lake and waited as Angele charged to them.
The leader’s whole body was covered in the silver armor, only some of his brown hair could be seen below his helmet. The man lowered his body and stared at the approaching wizard.
“He can walk on water, which means he’s at least a rank 2 wizard. That’s a problem…” he muttered as the white glow from the ring turned into a white barrier which coated his body.
“Leader, should we retreat for now and wait for the others?” a team captain behind him questioned in a low voice.
“It’s not like he’ll let us leave if we decide to retreat…” the leader responded.
He noticed that the man in black disappeared after he finished the sentence; he could feel the chill climbing up his spine.
“Shields! Get your shields ready!”
“On your left!”
The swordsmen shouted and screamed.
The leader had no time to think, he quickly turned around and started slashing.
He heard a loud noise coming from behind.
“That’s incredible, I didn’t expect you to block that!” Angele revealed himself from the darkness. His red eyes were glowing and there was a long silver sword with an engraved blade in his hand. It seemed like Angele took it from one of the swordsmen.
“Damn it! He got Jason!”
“He’s moving way too fast!”
“Stay in your position and stay focus!”
There were six swordsmen left and their faces were all covered with cold sweat. The swordsmen were staring at Angele anxiously.
It took Angele only several seconds to eliminate eight swordsmen by cutting their throats open; there was still blood spurting out of their wounds, splashing everywhere.
The leader tightened his muscles as the white light around became intense; he was staring at Angele without moving an inch.
“How dare you…” His eyes turned red. The leader grabbed the handle of the sword so tight that his fingers turned white.
Angele swung his sword and removed some of the blood. The red glow appeared around his eyes again and he quickly released an invisible wave that was spreading in all angles.
“He’s going to disappear again!”
“We need to stay close to each other!”
The rest of the swordsmen stayed close to each other, checking the surroundings constantly.
Angele was moving around them but he was moving so fast that no one could see him. He walked to swordsmen and slashed forward.
Angele cut the throats of two swordsmen open. The blood spurted out of their wounds right away.
He moved to the left slightly and dodged three swords that were going after his head. He quickly slashed forward again, leaving a silver line in the air.
Angele cut some of the swordsmen’s bodies in half. The blood already turned into small pools on the ground.
Only the leader was still alive after the two attacks; the others died before they could make any noise or say anything.
The leader tried to fight back by slashing forward but missed. He could not even see Angele’s body while his team members were falling to the ground.
“Henry…” He hesitated as he saw one of the swordsman’s body was cut in half.
The leader was kicked in the back. He was blown away by the impact and rolled several times in the blood pools.
Angele deactivated his illusion ability, walked to the leader and slashed down.
The leader dodged the attack by rolling to the left and hit Angele’s blade using his swords.
“God is watching us!” the leader roared and stood up. He started attacking Angele with his swords like crazy. His swords were coated with white glow, his attacks were fast and powerful. The two swords were moving so fast that almost looked like two silver shadows around Angele’s body.
Golden sparks appeared between the two and the only noise here was made by the swords.
‘Such power…’ Angele was slightly surprised. ‘He’s just a team leader from the church but he’s almost as fast as me.’
Angele leaped away to dodge the swords that were going for his legs and landed in front of a tall tree.
“Let’s end this now!” Angele charged forward and hit the sword in the leader’s right hand. He then quickly turned around and used the remaining force to slash forward.
The white light around the leader’s left arm started fading away. Although they had similar speed, his sword skills were weaker than Angele’s and it was nearly impossible for him to fight back.
The white light around his body was weakened, the leader felt like that the wizard was dancing with the blade. The wizard kept hitting his swords and his arms were having trouble handling the force.
With a noise, the leader’s swords were blown away from his hands, but Angele was still spinning like crazy and kept hitting the same point on the leader’s neck.
*CHI CHI CHI CHI*
The white light finally faded away and bloody wounds appeared on the leader’s neck. The leader’s body trembled and he could no longer block Angele’s attacks.
Angele did a simple forward slash again and leaped away without looking. He landed on the grass that was soaked in fresh blood, his eyes still glowing in the dark.
The leader took several steps back and stopped after hitting the tree behind him.
He opened his mouth but could not even say a word.
A large hand tapped on the man’s shoulder from behind the tree.
“Have some rest, I’ll take care of the rest.” A deep voice came from the shadow.
A tall man stepped out of the shadow, staring at Angele with a calm expression on the face. It was a farmer wearing a brown linen outfit. He was about 40 years old and had a pair of emotionless eyes. The man did not look like a strong being at all, he just like a normal farmer.
The man’s short black hair was messy and his outfit was covered with patches. Also, the man had a pair of calloused hands.
Angele looked at the man that just stepped out of the shadow, he noticed that the white light around the man’s body was much stronger than the light around the leader’s body. He sensed danger from the man; the feeling was making his body trembling.
‘It has been a while since the last I had a feeling like this…’
The red glow around Angele’s eyes got intense. It was not fear what made him tremble, it was excitement.
He had not felt something like this ever since he had the refined true form.
The middle-aged farmer looked at Angele and glanced at the bodies on the ground.
“The name is Victor. I didn’t expect to meet a strong being like you, the report I read was wrong… I thought this was going to be an easy mission…”
