“Even the healing potion from the church is no longer working…” Heli was anxious, he turned around and looked at the feminine man.
“Cynthia, is she still going after us?”
“No.” The pretty man named Cynthia shook his head gently. “We traveled much faster than them. Pay more attention to the guy on your back. He’ll die in a couple glass hours.”
Heli raised his head and looked at the cart that was parked by the river and recalled what the strange man said to him. He realized that the man could heal them for a fee.
He quickly checked his pouch but realized that he only had five silver coins left. The coins were dirty and one of them had a part missing.
The man with green eyes woke up and spoke in a hoarse voice, “Cough… It’s fine… Just leave without me…”
Heli acted like he did not hear those words. He repositioned the man on his back and slowly moved to the cart by the river.
In the cart, some green light rose from the man’s back; it smelt burnt.
Angele was holding a black stick in hand—he pressed the stick on the man’s back.
Heli and Fra were staring at them anxiously.
It felt like that the man with green could not even feel the pain when the burning stick landed on his skin, but there was sweat on his forehead.
“Alright, this is the last wound.” Angele dropped the smoking stick and put the other sticks on the table back into his pouch.
“This is a special healing technique I developed to treat his illness. It’s very effective, he only needs to rest for several more days.”
“Thank you so much!” Heli was almost treating Angele like a god. “Amber saved my life once and I must pay him back. If you need my help in the future, I’ll—”
Angele smiled and interrupted, “There’s a fee, you know.” He just looked at Heli.
Heli suddenly stopped talking and looked at Angele awkwardly. The atmosphere got heavy, even Fra knew that Heli had no money to pay for the treatment.
The man with green eyes remained silent, it seemed like he had no money too.
Angele remained calm.
“Don’t have enough money? No worries. I need help with a potion that I’m studying and the only thing I need is some of your blood.”
“Yeah, only a little bit of blood, it won’t hurt.” Angele took out a glass syringe from a wooden box. The syringe had the size of an arm.
Heli looked at the syringe and felt scared.
“Will my blood work?” the man with green eyes asked.
“You’re too weak. You’ll die if you lose blood.” Angele shrugged.
Half an hour later…
Heli jumped off the cart with a pale face several minutes later.
“I owe you one.” The man patted Heli’s shoulders.
“If you didn’t save me from that monster, I would be dead already. It’s nothing.” Heli waved his hands.
“Let’s go, we need to move or they’ll catch up. Let’s go around the forest and head to the East Empire. The church hasn’t fully terrorized that area yet, the border is close.”
The man named Amber nodded.
They walked to the right side of the river and disappeared into the forest. The man named Cynthia also rushed into the forest.
A dark shadow appeared in the bushes after Cynthia left—the shadow was having trouble catching up but it was still following after them.
Angele raised his head and looked at the shadow but did not say anything. He swang the glass syringe; it looked a bit purplish under the sunlight for some reason.
“Andre, what are we going to do next?” Fra questioned behind him.
“We’ll stay here. This place is great I think.” Angele looked at the entrance to the tunnel on the other side of the river.
“Are you looking at that wooden door? I think it’s an entrance to a tomb.” Fra noticed what Angele was looking at.
“I think only a weak noble family would build a tomb here but it looks old. I doubt if the noble family still exists. It seems like no one has visited the tomb for years.”
“I didn’t expect you to know that.” Angele was surprised. He noticed that Fra was reading a novel about a legendary knight and felt a bit speechless.
“A legendary knight named Barbosa built a tomb like that and the legendary gear, Shield of Honor, was buried with him!” Fra sounded excited.
Angele shook his head and said, “Alright, we need to set up the tent here. We’ll just stay by the river.”
They set up a gray tent by the river quickly.
Angele purchased the tent when he was still an apprentice and was surprised that the tent was still perfect after all those years.
The tent was perfect for two people. Fra was slim and was not worried that Angele would do anything to her so she usually slept next to Angele.
They took out dry rations and condiments from the wooden boxes. They also found some mushrooms from the forest and caught some fish from the river. Fra had no problem living here.
She would practice sword techniques after she woke up every day and thought Angele did not know what she was doing.
Angele usually used the time to study the blood he extracted from Heli.
There was a strong bloodline in Heli’s blood, much stronger than the bloodlines Angele had. However, he could not extract the bloodline from Heli’s blood—Heli was too weak. He only acquired some bloodline essence.
Strangely, the bloodline essence increased Angele’s wizard power greatly after it was completely absorbed. The problem was that Angele already gave up the normal wizard power and became a bloodline wizard.
The bloodline essence merged into Angele’s negative emotions and turned into some strange power that went through his whole body. The strange power helped him form the fourth mentality crystal.
Angele was shocked and quickly studied the bloodline essence using the biochip but did not find any valuable result. Only a third of the mentality crystal was formed; the power was not strong enough to complete the process.
He could only form three mentality crystals as a wizard due to his low talent level but this bloodline essence changed the situation. Angele’s mentality was much higher than the requirement to become a rank 4 wizard but he could not do so. Also, he was just one step away from Siva State.
Heli’s bloodline brought him hope. Angele immediately started thinking that maybe the bloodline would help him break the limit and enter Siva State.
Siva State had the same power level as a legendary rank 9 wizard.
Two months later.
Heli returned to Angele’s cart again with Cynthia in his arms. They were both covered in blood and Heli fell to the ground after he stopped walking.
“Help him…” Heli spat out the words and fainted.
Angele and Fra were having dinner by the cart when Heli arrived. Angele shook his head speechlessly after seeing Heli. He walked to them and checked their condition. Fra helped him to put them down on the ground.
Angele was checking Cynthia’s condition. The pretty man was seriously injured—although Cynthia was unconscious, his brow was still furrowed. The man’s long dark hair trailed on the grass and there was a terrifying wound on his body. From his left shoulder to the right leg, the wound was around one finger wide, and Angele could almost see the organs in his stomach.
There was also a bloody hole on the right side of the man’s neck. There was still blood spurting out of the hole.
Also, Angele saw some white light on the left side of the man’s chest.
Angele’s brow furrowed after seeing the situation.
“They are both dying but they still made it here… They are trying their best to survive…” He slowly cut the man’s clothes open, revealing the chest.
The man’s skin was almost translucent due to the light that was coming out of his body and his heart was still pumping.
Fra quickly handed a silver knife to Angele.
Angele grabbed the knife and slowly cut Cynthia’s chest open, revealing the red flesh and white bones inside.
Through his ribs, Angele could see the surface of his heart. There was a white rune on it. Mortals would not be able to notice the light coming from it.
“That’s a problem…” Angele’s expression turned serious.
Heli just woke up and his face turned even paler after hearing those words.
“I think you can still save him, right? I’ll do whatever you say!”
Angele looked at Heli and said, “This thing is like a bomb that was stuck to his heart. The bomb will be detonated when a certain requirement is met. The man will explode into pieces. Who did this to you? That’s some incredible technique.”
Heli was cold and his lips twitched.
“He was just trying to save my life…” He could barely finish the sentence.
“There’s only one method.” Angele stopped for a second and continued, “I need one fresh spinneret from a yellow jade spider. You must bring it back within five days or he’ll die.”
“I’ll go now!” Heli stood up but he hesitated before leaving.
“Where can I find the yellow jade spider?” He wondered.
“There are many yellow jade spiders and random bushes in the forests but not all of them have the spinneret. You can find them at places that are dark and wet,” Angele explained.
Angele was not lying to Heli, he did need the spinneret to solve the problem. However, he did not have that in his pouch or the storage and he had to stay here to keep Cynthia alive.
