Angele thought for a while and looked down the balcony again.
He sighed slightly after the sunset and the crescent moons appeared in the sky.
He was holding a green jade stand, which almost looked like a tube that was full of green liquid, in his right hand.
Angele received this item several days ago. Like the invitation letter, the jade stand came from nowhere. He checked the stand carefully and found nothing special. This thing glowed but it did not do anything else.
However, the jade stand started releasing gentle energy waves after he met the monster.
He threw the green jade stand into the air and it floated in front of him.
Several minutes later, the jade stand started melting and quickly turned into a ball of green liquid. An invisible mentality wave was released by the liquid ball.
“Master Angele, nice to meet you, my name is Atlanta.” The voice stopped for a second and continued, “You might not be familiar with the name, but I assume you know my title. My title is the Realm Guardian.”
Angele narrowed his eyes.
“Realm Guardian? Are you sure about this?”
“There’s no point for me to lie, right?” Angele was not sure if Atlanta was male or female based on their voice.
“I’m going to hold a party, and you can join if you’re interested. I’ve stayed in the Gem Sea for so long, but you’re the first wizard who broke the limit by yourself.”
“A party, huh? How do I go to your party?” Angele decided to believe Atlanta’s words. Atlanta’s mentality wave was so strong that his power level was at least rank 7 or rank 8.
“This liquid ball will guide you to the party; it starts in five years. You’re a strong being but I suggest that you don’t break the balance too much. Strong beings at our level can easily destroy a realm, but the realm power won’t allow us to do that.”
Angele realized the man did not know that he was already fighting the realm power. He hesitated for a second and responded, “Five years from now should be fine. Also, I assume you are merfolk, but… why didn’t you do anything during the last war between the merfolk and the human beings?”
“I’ve placed my soul into more than ten different bodies; there’s no point to help all the people in the same race. Our life expectancy is nearly infinite; why do we need to care about these boring wars? I’m the guardian of the realm but I’m not going to make sure that no race is extinguished.”
Angele could understand what Atlanta just said.
“Why did you send me the letter, then? You wouldn’t have found me just because I broke the limit, right?”
“Do you really think I can’t detect the strong energy wave you released when you launched the attack? A magic creature that’s not very intelligent can figure that out.”
“Also, I’m not the only Realm Guardian here. There’s a guardian who is good at detecting unusual energy movements; he has been staying with me for the last several centuries.”
“Understood.” Angele finally figured out what was happening. “I accept the invitation, but I need to go to the underground world first.”
“Sure, no problem.”
The green liquid solidified and turned into the jade stand again.
Angele collected the jade stand and put it into the mirror. He stood on the balcony and started thinking about the guardians.
“Master, the dinner is ready, do you want to have it now, or…?” A maid was calling him.
Angele turned around and returned to the obelisk.
“Have you prepared the information I needed?” He sat down by the table and sipped some soup from the bowl.
“Everything is ready,” the maid, who was wearing a black dress, replied respectfully.
“Good, then. I’ll be leaving tonight. Inform the president.”
Angele started having dinner while making a new plan in mind.
Several minutes later, Andy appeared with some black leather scrolls.
“Master, the map you needed is here. Also, we collected the information from all the wizard organizations we know. We even traded with the white wizards.”
He handed the leather scrolls to Angele.
Angele cleaned his mouth with a piece of cloth and opened the scrolls.
With a light noise, the scrolls turned into a large map that had the length of around one meter. There were many routes marked in black and red on the map. The dangerous locations and tips were also marked on the map.
Angele glanced at the map and recorded everything using the biochip. He nodded as he was satisfied with the result. “How about the other things? Is everything ready?”
“Yes, you can leave whenever you want,” Andy responded politely.
“Mira and Jayce will be communicating with you when I’m not around. Also, two of my friends will help the school when necessary,” Angele said.
“Alright, you can leave now.”
Angele suddenly lost his appetite, so he asked the maid to clean the table and take away the dishes.
He sat in the chair and put his hands on the table. He was playing with a blue string. The blue string was translucent and glowing slightly.
“Power of time… Power of time…”
‘I assume this guardian named Atlanta will keep the realm in balance. I wonder why the guardians didn’t do anything when the Nightmare Realm invaded the wizard world… He talked to me because I might actually break the balance? I might be able to get information on the power of time from him. The guardians must know the secrets and he might be able to help me with the ancestor’s mark, but five years… I should go to the underground world and see if the tree can solve the problem for me.’
Angele checked all his belongings and walked down the obelisk. Andy and some other important members of the school were already waiting for him. There were also some dark wizards and apprentices.
They left the school together and headed to the original location of Ramsoda.
“The original location of the school was attacked many times in the history, so we relocated to a place that is far from the original location. The ruin is strange. It was still there after all those years and we’re proud of it. Also, this was the place where you studied as a student, and I think you are familiar with it. Sometimes, when we need to…” Andy explained as they walked.
Angele nodded as Andy explained the history.
The rest of the wizards were not saying a word, including Sella, the professors of the school, the wizards who served in the war against the Northland Alliance. They were not even looking at Angele’s face directly as they wanted to show their respect.
Only the wizards who served in the war knew how terrifying Angele’s power was. The attack Angele launched turned him into a star; the young wizards were talking about the strike all the time.
They arrived at the sand city without any problem. There were also apprentices and knights that were checking the surroundings for them.
The monster named Mogo was waiting for them by the bridge. There were two beautiful girls in revealing outfits standing behind Mogo.
They all bowed to Angele slightly after the team arrived.
Angele could see the breasts of the two girls when they were bowing to him.
Angele’s brow furrowed. “What’s the point of this?”
Andy was a bit surprised. He exchanged eye contact with the two girls, who quickly left the area.
Mogo chuckled after seeing the scene. “I already told you that Master won’t be interested. There are many beautiful night elves and—”
Angele glanced at Mogo. Mogo’s body trembled as he stopped talking.
“Let’s go straight to the entrance, Mogo. We’ll be the only two people entering the underground world.”
“Master, the night elves hate wizards like us…” Sella sounded worried. “You’re strong, but if they decided to attack you in groups…”
“Don’t worry about it.” Angele stopped Sella and walked to the stone bridge.
The team still followed after him.
They entered the ruin together and passed by the old buildings. They quickly reached a spacious square.
In the center of the square, there were several black robes waiting on a parking lot. They raised their arms and released black energy waves.
The energy waves turned into a dark hole, which was also releasing energy waves.
Angele realized that there was chilling air coming out of the hole as he approached it.
“Alright, you can leave now.” Angele waved his hand. “Who’s in charge of collecting the information about the night elves?”
“It’s me, Master. My name is Wayne.” An old wizard stepped forward.
The old man named Wayne was the professor of the prophecy.
“Tell me about the general situation.”
“Yes, Master.” Wayne thought for a while and opened his mouth. “The Night Elf Empire is in trouble right now. There are three strong forces trying to take control of the empire. The strongest force is led by the Spider Queen, the second force is led by the one of the Night Elf Princes with a nickname Poisoned Dagger, and the last force, which is supported by the Night Elf Trees, is led by Prince Nowak.”
“Do they all hate the people from the surface?”
“No, Prince Nowak hates them, but the other two forces will work with us when there’s benefit to be had. They don’t really care,” Wayne responded. “Master, this entrance will lead you to the territory of a prince. Some say he has the artifact of the Spider Queen—”
“I want to know more about other information,” Angele interrupted. “What about the Mother Tree? Whom is she supporting?”
“Mother Tree is the most respected being in the empire; she is neutral. I marked her location on the map as well. Also, I heard there are inheritors of some noble bloodlines from the ancient Nightmare Realm in the Night Elf Empire.”
“Noble bloodlines? Like what? The Hundred-Eyed Monsters?”
