Angele returned to the caravan quickly. The camp was quiet; he saw several mercenaries sleeping by the carriages with swords in their arms. Also, there was not much smoke rising from the extinguished campfires.
Angele softened his footsteps and walked to his carriage. He opened the door and lay down next to Fra. He listened to the movements around in the darkness carefully.
He could hear someone walking by but the footsteps faded quickly.
Angele moved to the wall and started thinking about the information he’d collected today.
‘I shall be careful if Light Ancestor is behind the church. Although Light Ancestor was defeated, weakened, and sealed, Light Ancestor still has the power to eliminate me easily. I should probably lie low.”
Angele recalled the day he met the old eye-gouging dragon. The dragon was probably in a similar situation like him, it was like Lord of Terror without Nightmare Realm’s realm power. The old dragon was probably much stronger than the King of eye-gouging dragons and that was the reason why it survived for so long.
In the ancient times, there were three races that had a lot of strong wizards. Chaos Dragons were just one of them. Eye-gouging dragons were part of Chaos Dragons but they already had strong beings like the old dragon. Human beings produced the strongest wizards of the time—they probably had wizards whose power level was higher than the old dragon’s.
Light Ancestor destroyed the ancient wizards but the ancient wizards successfully sealed him.
Angele narrowed his eyes.
‘Which means… Light Ancestor is at least at Siva State and probably has some terrifying talent abilities.’
Siva State was a power level that was defined by Angele. He considered the individuals that had higher power level than him as individuals who were at Siva State. Siva State could probably be used to describe the ancestors’ power level.
However, Angele had no idea what would happen after he reached that level. Individuals at Siva State still had different power levels.
Angele checked the surroundings in the darkness.
Owls were making noises outside.
The sky turned from black to gray and some other birds started twittering. The sun was about to rise and the forest got noisy.
Angele suddenly looked at Fra and closed his eyes. He made it look like that he was sleeping.
Fra slowly opened her eyes, she realized that her body was right next to Angele’s body and blushed. Fra slowly moved away from Angele and put on her outfit. She then quickly organized her blonde hair and moved to the door of the carriage.
When she was about to reach the door, she suddenly remembered something and returned to Angele. She picked up a damaged crossguard sword beside a wooden case carefully and stared at Angele. For some reason, she did not want Angele to figure out what she was doing.
The crossguard sword had a decent size and was a bit hard to move in the carriage. The wooden case and the sword were right beside Angele. Fra tried her best not to wake Angele up and slowly moved the sword away from Angele.
She moved as slowly as she could.
About ten seconds later, Fra finally held the crossguard sword in her hands. She was tired and her face was red. The crossguard sword weighed around one kilogram. Fra picked it up using one hand; there was cold sweat on her forehead.
Fra took out a red notebook from her own case after acquiring the sword. She put the red notebook into her pocket and started moving to the door again.
Suddenly, her butt was slapped.
Fra was surprised, she slowly turned her head around while her body was trembling. It was Angele who just slapped her butt. However, it seemed like Angele was sleeping and what he did was unintentional.
“Damn it, old man! I’ll make you pay back during lunchtime! I’ll mix some diced flies into your meat, it’ll taste good!” Fra cursed in a low voice. Angele’s hand was still on her waist and she was still in shock.
The hand slowly slid down her body as she moved forward. It landed on her legs and then fell to the floor.
Fra felt relieved, she quickly crawled out of the carriage and closed the door.
She sat on the driving seat and took out a pair of red leather boots from a wooden box and put them on quickly.
Fra jumped off the carriage with the crossguard sword in hand and walked to the forest.
“Damn it! I hate you, even insects are better than you! I’ll beat you up after I master those sword techniques! I should work harder!” Fra felt angry after she recalled what’d just happened in the carriage.
She slashed down the bushes as she walked into the forest. Broken pieces of wood and leaves were everywhere.
“My legendary crossguard sword… Andre is forcing me to work for him to pay back the daily expenses… He also took all my treasures away!” She was still cursing and she was trying to find the best word to describe Angele. Several minutes later, she failed to find the word she wanted.
“Andre, you pig!”
“You pig!” She nodded and repeated the word. That was the best curse she knew.
In the carriage, Angele could no longer hold it—he sat up and started laughing. He looked out of the window and saw Fra cursing while slashing down the bushes.
‘Interesting kid… She never did something like this in front of me…’
Shaking his head, Angele crossed his legs and started testing the painting’s portal.
He heard that the guards were walking around, it seemed like they finally woke up.
He kept doing simulations until Fra came back. They had breakfast together and the caravan started moving again. The carriage was almost jumping when the wheels ran over large pieces of stones.
Angele got bored; he leaned against the wall and started reading an old novel. Fra was swinging a small branch in her hand, it seemed like she was still practicing.
“Fra, did you wash the clothes?”
“Did you feed the oxen?”
“Yeah, I bought some long grass from Wade. It’s about one bronze coin per meal.”
Angele raised his head and glanced at Fra.
“You haven’t cleaned the carriage, right? Also, you need to wash my boots.”
Fra pursed her lips after hearing the word.
“I’m the one that’s paying for everything, you know that, right?” Angele’s expression turned serious.
“Go now, use wooden brushes and clean them carefully.”
Fra inhaled deeply and glanced at Angele. It seemed like she was cursing at Angele in her mind again.
‘I’ll definitely make your lunch taste better!’ she shouted in mind.
“Alright, just go, thanks.” Angele smiled and patted the girl’s shoulders. “Work hard. I need to leave the carriage for a minute.”
He jumped off the carriage and started walking. Angele turned his head around and made sure that Fra already started working.
‘If she only practices the sword techniques, she won’t have enough strength to maximize the power. She needs those work,’ Angele thought. He ran to one of the carriages in the front.
There were two mercenaries around the carriage, walking while chewing something. It seemed like they were still sleepy.
Angele approached them.
“Hey, do you know where Heli is?”
One of the mercenaries glanced at Angele.
“Heli? He’s sick. Why?”
Angele threw a silver coin to the man’s hand accurately.
A smile appeared on the man’s face right away.
“Well, I can take you to him, but he’s really sick. He’s resting in one of the carriages behind.”
The man started walking after finishing these words. Angele followed after him and went past his own carriage. They reached the end of the caravan—a bunch of oxcarts.
There were several sick men and women lying on the carts. Their faces were pale and they looked tired.
The man stopped after seeing the situation.
“You can find him here, I don’t want to be infected. You should stay away from them too.” He pursed his lips and left.
The people in the carts were groaning. Angele found the man he saw last night in one of the carts on the left.
The man’s face was pale but it seemed like his situation was a bit different from the others’. His body would only move when the cart was shaking.
Angele jumped into the cart and sat by the man.
“Young man, you’re dying… I have some drug that’ll cure you. What do you think?” He smiled and looked at the middle-aged man. “I think something that happened last night was the problem.”
The man named Heli was surprised after hearing these words.
“How do you know that?” He was hunted down by a woman with strange power. The woman accused him of breaking a promise, but he did not remember what he did. His head was still dizzy.
If the masked woman had not helped him, he would already have been dead.
Heli thought for a while and observed the man talking to him.
It was a young man with a pair of dark-red eyes. However, it seemed like the young man thought he was older than Heli. The young man had smooth skin and some mustache, he looked like a man from a noble family. Also, the smile on his face was making Heli feel uncomfortable for some reason.
The young man was wearing a linen outfit but still looked like he was from a rich family. His long red hair was nice and clean.
“Of course I know.” He lay down by Heli and lowered his voice as he spoke, “I also know that you were saved by a masked woman. If the masked woman hadn’t appeared, you would already have been dead, right?”
Heli was even more surprised after hearing these words; he tried to sit up.
“Who are you?! Wait, do you know who I am?” Heli lost part of his memory. He met several people that claimed they knew him. They either hated him or felt sorry for him. There were also people who tried to kill him.
Heli only knew that he woke up in a random valley but he was not sure why there were so many people going after him, including the feminine man he encountered last night. Those people all had special powers.
“I know you’ve lost your memory…” Angele smiled and looked at the sky.
The clean blue sky looked like a large piece of sapphire, while the clouds in the sky looked like smoke balls. The sun was warm and nice, its golden light illuminated the ground gently.
Angele could smell the refreshing fragrance of random flowers and grass in the wind.
“I also know that you’re different. You have something that others don’t have,” he continued before Heli could say anything. “However, I don’t know who you are. I’m just curious.”
Angele turned his head to the right and found a thin man in gray lying in the cart.
The man’s face was pale and he looked like he might die at any time. There was a short wooden bar in his right hand; he held the bar so tight that it felt like the wooden bar was a treasure to him.
The man noticed that Angele was looking at him, he turned to Angele and narrowed his eyes.
“Do you know me?” The man had a pair of green eyes and a hoarse voice, it sounded like he had not drunk water for days.
Angele and Heli looked at the man after hearing the voice.
Heli looked at the man and found the man familiar. However, he could not remember who the man was; he rubbed his temples and tried his best to think.
Angele looked at the man because he noticed something different. Also, the man’s sight was piercing through his body when he stared at Angele. It was something that did not happen to Angele often.
