“I apologize if I’m wrong, but I don’t think you’re Miss Isabel’s student,” Golan suddenly said.
Angele stopped walking. He remained silent; he wanted to know what else Golan had to say.
“Although I don’t know the relationship between you and Miss Isabel…” Golan did not finish the sentence. She sighed slightly, turned around, and left.
Angele checked the woman’s body when he first saw her. The woman was weak, but she still lived for over 700 years. It seemed like there was a special bloodline in this old woman’s body—it was identical to the bloodline of merfolk. Merfolk’s bloodline was famous for their long life expectancy. Also, people with strong bloodlines usually lived much longer than normal wizards.
He stepped into the patio and smelled the light fragrance. It was probably from the flowers, but it just smelled like Isabel for some reason. Isabel already smelled like this when she was traveling with Angele.
He walked into the small gray house. There was a chair, a table, several bookshelves, and a king-sized bed in the house. There was also a painting that was created by a spell on the wall.
In the painting, a man and a woman were standing on the deck of a ship that was on the surface of the sea. The man was wearing a long black robe and the woman was the young Isabel. She was wearing a white robe and there was a smile on her face. It seemed like their hair was flying in the wind.
Angele realized that the man was him. This painting was created by a spell using a special method by someone. The painting was decorated with golden edges and was hanging on the wall quietly.
He noticed that there were some words at the bottom right corner. He rubbed them using his fingers carefully.
‘Raymond. March 4th, 1726.’
“That was two hundred years after I left the city… Raymond was the one who created this painting…”
Angele still remembered how Raymond took Isabel away from Isabel’s grandmother.
He walked around in the house and started checking everything carefully. The death of a physical form might not be the end of a wizard. It was possible that Isabel’s soul was still around.
Sadly, Angele checked the whole area but failed to find Isabel’s soul. He realized that Isabel was completely gone.
He was depressed as he returned to the painting. He looked at the painting for a while and exited the patio.
The woman in black was blown away by the impact. Her body drew a line in the air and landed on the ground. She coughed and spat out some blood. The woman struggled; she wanted to stand up, but her legs were broken. The only thing she could do was watch the enemy walk to her.
“You’re here for the item too? It’s too late. I’ve already delivered it to the family and the item will be traded for medicine. You don’t have a chance… Ugh!”
A man stepped on her chest.
He was tall a man with a translucent body. There was a gray corona floating behind the man. The needle on the corona was pointing to the right.
“You’ve seen my target… Am I too late?” The man’s brow furrowed.
“Tell me, what does he look like?” He lowered his head and looked at the woman.
“Ugh…” The woman’s eyes were wide open, but she would not spit out any word.
Her pupils were retracting and there was blood spurting out of her mouth.
The woman’s chest was penetrated like paper being pierced through.
The man stood on the dead body and looked to the right.
“He’s fast… Maybe he already knows that I’m going after him… I won’t let you escape this time…”
“Kill! Kill everyone we encounter!”
“No one can stop us! The Shadow Key shall be ours!”
The faces appeared on his face again and started making noises. The man tapped on his face and the screaming faces quickly disappeared.
He disappeared into a ball of blue light, leaving the woman’s dead body behind.
Angele found the correct direction and started heading to the ruins of the Ramsoda Empire. The whole Ramsoda Empire was destroyed over the years. The only things left were the ruins of the ancient cities.
He checked numerous ruins, but failed to find any traces left by human activities. Angele decided to head straight to the Ramsoda School, which was below ancient ruins.
Angele checked the map he created and quickly found the forest in front of the school. He decided to fly to his destination.
It took him a couple of days to find the exact location.
He traveled for several more days and found two gray robes who were looking for herbs in the forest.
“What? The school relocated after it was rebuilt? So, it’s no longer under the ruins?” Angele’s brow furrowed as he looked at the two gray robes in front of him.
“Yes, sir. The new school is located at the north of the original school. It’s close to the Wizard’s House,” one of the apprentices responded. “Also, we’re holding the promotion event for Wizard Charles, and the school is currently open to the public. You could visit the school if you’re interested.”
“Understood.” Angele nodded. “Are the old ruins still at the original location?”
Angele threw a low-level magic crystal to the apprentice.
“Thank you for the help.”
He finished the sentence and disappeared into the air. The two apprentices had no idea what’d just happened. They looked confused.
Several days later.
Angele stepped out of the forest and overlooked the sand city ahead. The stone bridge was still standing over the dried river quietly, covered with sand.
Under the intense sunlight, the whole ancient city looked golden.
Angele checked the map carefully, and a smile appeared on his face.
He floated in the air and traveled over the stone bridge, heading to the sand city. He went around the city, turned several times, and moved to the other side of the city.
Angele passed by a bird statue and found a spacious square ahead.
The smile disappeared from Angele’s face. He narrowed his eyes and stared at a translucent man who was standing in the center of the square. He noticed that the man was releasing a strange mentality wave and there was a floating corona behind him.
“Who are you?” Angele questioned in a deep voice. He already noticed that the man was standing in front of the entrance to the underground world. It seemed like he was not a random traveler or a guard.
“It’s not important.” The man had a blank expression on his face.
“Hand over the Shadow Key and I won’t devour you.”
“Shadow Key?” Angele was a bit surprised. He forgot about the item. He’d acquired the item from the ruin of Axis of Time. If this man did not question him about the key, he would not remember that he had the key. There were so many things in his mirror, and he would only take an item out when he needed it.
He heard music playing from the far side. It seemed like the promotion event already started; there were fireworks in the sky. The fireworks were brighter than the intense sunlight. It seemed like they were magic items.
Angele looked at the man quietly, and they both started releasing strong energy waves.
Suddenly, Angele smiled and took out something from the mirror. He quickly threw the item to the man.
“It’s just a key. You can have it.”
He threw the black key to the left and the man caught it right away. The man had to move away from the entrance to catch the key.
Angele shook his head and walked to the entrance.
“I didn’t say you could leave.” The man’s voice came from the side.
Angele hesitated and the smile disappeared from his face.
“What did you just say? Say it again. I didn’t hear it.”
The energy wave Angele released was terrifying. He did not expect that the man would confront him again. The energy wave released by the man seemed weak.
Angele stopped and stared at the stranger. Rings created by flames appeared in his pupils.
The man did not respond. He collected the key and his right arm turned into a humongous glowing blue tentacle. The tentacle landed on the ground and turned into countless small glowing tentacles.
“Time will prove everything…” the man was speaking some random words as he approached Angele. The tentacles he created started growing and almost covered the whole square.
The slimy tentacles moved around the square and surrounded the man in the center.
Angele sneered and released his energy waves. He released intense red light from his body—the things covered by the red light all started melting. Some of the tentacles were caught in the red light; they were vaporized right away, and there was something screaming in the air.
“You made a wrong choice.” Angele slowly took off his mask. There were countless blinking eyes on his face, all staring at the stranger.
The man was surprised. He watched the red light expand and his expression changed.
Some blood-red lightning splashed in the sky and there was thunder rumbling. Countless dark shadows appeared in the sky and blocked the sunlight.
The red light from the lightning illuminated Angele’s face, which looked a bit terrifying.
