‘They should know what I’m capable of by now, but I’ll just show them my true power.’
Angele slowly stood up from the lava and revealed the purple eyes on his arms. These eyes were still smoking due to the high temperature, causing smoke to permeate the whole room.
Angele walked around the edge of the pool with bare feet and the black robe from the hanger flew to him. The robe was made of a special liquid from the eyes of a magic beast and the material had high fire resistance.
He put on the robe and a belt. He then attached the mirror and a small dagger to his belt.
Angele walked to the tunnel slowly and disappeared into a ball of flames. He traveled more than 30 meters within seconds.
He checked the teleportation distance and his brow furrowed.
‘I can’t even teleport to an area that’s close to here…’ Angele could easily teleport to an area that was more than 300 meters away. He felt tired just teleporting around 30 meters this time.
Angele checked the energy consumption using the biochip—the teleportation cost him more than 30 thousand degrees of energy. He needed around half a day to recover that amount of energy; also, his muscles were slightly injured, and it seemed like his body could no longer handle the basic technique.
“It seems like I should only use the elemental ability when absolutely necessary…”
The mark on his back was the main problem. There was nothing he could do about it at the moment.
It took him several minutes to reach the exit of the tunnel. The two Grand Knights that were guarding the tunnel bowed and greeted him.
The eagle man Sella was waiting for him by the exit quietly. Angele noticed the man right away.
“Master, the representatives are waiting for you at the spiral room of the school, what do you think?”
“Let’s go and meet them. I don’t want to waste too much time.” Angele nodded.
A ball of red light appeared under their feet and helped them fly over a forest of white stone pillars. They also passed by some buildings before landing on a platform of a black obelisk.
A group of wizards varying in gender was waiting for them quietly on the platform. There were black robes, white robes, and some of them looked like men with the bodies of foxes.
The foxes were only around one meter tall and were walking like human beings. Their hind legs were on the ground and their front legs were their hands. They were wearing red robes with golden patterns on their chests. The golden patterns looked like a fox with six ears. Although the patterns looked a bit strange, they were not really eye-catching.
Two wizards had heavy shells and only their faces were exposed to the air. They had black horns and there were two yellow strips on their chests.
They were insect men from the underground world—they looked identical to rhino beetles. These insect men were born without eyes and had no problem handling spells that might blind them. They also had a natural resistance to low-level illusion abilities.
Angele and Sella arrived on the platform. They glanced at the wizards that were standing on the platform.
“I assume you’re Master Angele.” The merfolk wizard stepped forward first—an old man with white messy hair. He had a red coral cane in his hand and his ears looked like fish fins.
“Let me introduce myself. I’m Blue Moon. I’m representing the Saladin Empire.”
“Blue Moon the Hydra. I know your name.” Angele nodded slightly.
“Let’s enter the room and talk.” He passed through the crowd and entered the obelisk.
Inside the obelisk was a spacious hall with a tall stone chair in the front. A pair of eyes was engraved on the back of the chair.
Angele walked to the chair and sat down. He put his hands on the handles and looked at the wizards.
The wizards followed them into the hall and sat down in the chairs. The president and the vice-president of the school who shared the same body sat down in a seat close to Angele; Sella also found a seat.
Two teams of apprentices of different genders served fruits to the wizards. They made sure that they served the right food to the right races. Some wizards were served fresh rabbits and squirrels.
After all the wizards sat down and introduced themselves, Angele started speaking.
“Welcome to Ramsoda. I guess you’ve already heard about the rumors about me, right? I’ll let the representative of the Saladin Empire talk first. Go ahead, Blue Moon.”
Blue Moon was not surprised. He was one of the strongest wizards here and he knew he should be the one to speak first. He sipped some juice and made sure everything was under control.
Blue Moon looked at Angele and opened his mouth.
“Regarding the Saladin Empire, we hope to make an agreement with you. The Saladin Empire has already returned the territory of the Rudin Empire to you. However, I still have my concerns. I think I should have a conversation with you. There are many wizards from different races here and I think we merfolk should show our respect first. Please accept our small gift.”
He clapped and a female wizard behind him took out a small square box. She threw the box to the floor carefully.
The black box expanded and its height increased to over four meters. There was a humongous black cat trapped inside the box.
There were white clouds around the cat which was releasing white mist through its ears. It almost felt like the black cat was full of white mist. The cat noticed the wizards around it and started making noises. It was ready to attack at any time.
The wizards hesitated for a second after seeing the cat and started discussing in low voices. Some of their brows furrowed, it seemed like they were confused; but, the wizards who knew what the cat was all had serious expressions on their faces.
“The cloud beast… An aggressive beast from the Gem Sea. How did the merfolk capture it alive?”
“It’s a female cloud beast… The merfolk must have sent a strong wizard to capture it.”
A wizard sneered as he looked at Angele and the two important members of Ramsoda.
Andy and Sella were also surprised. They glanced at Angele and noticed that Angele was not concerned at all. There was a blank expression on Angele’s face.
It was the first time Angele met a beast from the Gem Sea. He could feel the strong energy waves released by the beast, but the energy waves only had the power level of a rank 3 wizard. He noticed that more and more white clouds appeared in the air after the black cat appeared.
“So, this thing is called the cloud beast?” He opened his mouth. “Looks nice. You said this was a gift. What are you trying to imply? I’m not familiar with the Gem Sea and it’s the first time I saw something like this. I assume you’ll explain everything to us.”
The wizards in the hall slowly stopped talking. Blue Moon was not surprised at all. He stood up and smiled.
“Cloud beasts live on certain islands in the Gem Sea. They can control the mist and move extremely fast. Mortals and weak wizards can’t even see their movements. You can only capture them when they are resting. They usually rest in underground caves, and that’s why they are hard to find.” He stopped for a second and continued, “Most importantly, if you can extract the blood out of a living cloud beast’s body, your life expectancy will be increased by ten years.”
Most of the wizards in the hall were surprised by the information. Not many wizards knew that fact, but ten years of extra life were attractive to the weak wizards. Their life expectancy was shorter than strong wizards’.
Some of the wizards’ expressions changed as they looked at the cloud beast. There were also wizards glaring at the merfolk wizards.
A white robe from the Northland Alliance stood up and asked, “I wonder, why did you decide to bring the cloud beast here?”
She was a female wizard named Lila, who was wearing a silver headband covered with runes.
The female wizard was a bit chubby and her skin was a bit rough. It seemed like she did not care about her appearance. Usually, female wizards would modify their appearance after they advanced to the formal wizards. A female wizard like her was a bit rare in the wizard society.
Blue Moon smiled again.
“The cloud beasts move so fast that only strong wizards can capture them. Usually, people can’t capture them and extract blood from them. However, to show our respect, the Grand Blue Wizard of the merfolk decided to gift you this cloud beast, Master Angele.” He looked at Angele.
“Also, we hope that you could understand the relationship between the merfolk and the Saladin Empire. One more thing, this box is an important magic item to the Grand Blue Wizard and we might have to retrieve it…”
It was a challenge. If Angele could not finish off the cloud beast after they open the box, the gift would turn into a disaster. A beast with the power of a rank 3 wizard was no joke. Also, the cloud beast was famous for its speed, and could easily take out a group of average wizards.
Also, the magic item that could keep the cloud beast inside was extremely rare. Blue Moon was certain that Ramsoda did not have a magic item like that.
