Black Forest, Dark Water Port
“Hamilton, tell us in detail what happened at the tundra. Tell us all so we can be prepared.”
There was a castle beside the port. A group was in a meeting inside the castle’s main hall. That sentence was from High Elf Prince Mordena to the Inferno Warrior.
Hamilton wasn’t happy about Mordena’s commanding tone. However, he’d experienced the power of Firuman’s top figures and didn’t dare act too proudly now. He shrugged and started with meeting the Red Dragon Queen’s group. He continued with the extreme north, meeting the protector, and everything else.
At the end, he said, “I quit at the mountain. There were too many opponents, and they were all Magicians. I wasn’t their match alone. Afterwards, I stayed outside to observe. In the end, I only saw one person walk out unharmed. It was the Ferde lord.”
Hearing this, everyone fell silent.
Of the Magicians that Hamilton had mentioned, only the Ferde lord and the Red Dragon Queen were well-known. The others, like the dwarf and Light and Dark Magicians, were unheard of to most of the people present.
The only one who knew everyone was High Elf Prince Mordena. He was also the most shaken. Every time Hamilton described one of them, he would subconsciously tap the table, his brows furrowing.
“Your Highness, do you know them?” asked Lawndale, head of the Dark Elf Magicians.
After that battle at the Orida Fortress two years ago, the Dark Elves had lost their elites and suffered great losses. They’d become a second-class race now, almost becoming servants to the Agatha Nagas. Lawndale was a Level-9 Magician, but he didn’t have much confidence when he spoke. He was very quiet and even bowed slightly to Mordena to show respect.
Molina and the others also looked to Mordena, waiting for him to explain.
Mordena nodded. “I’ve indeed heard of them. Perhaps you think that the Red Dragon Queen and Ferde lord are figures from legends. But I think that the other three Magicians all have comparable strength, especially the Light and Dark Magicians. They are the most mysterious. They’re behind many of the large events throughout the centuries.”
Hearing this, everyone exchanged glances. Then they thought of something else. They were all absolute powerhouses, but only the Ferde lord was unharmed in the end. Where did they all go?
Here, Mordena got an idea and asked, “Hamilton, you said you saw the Ferde lord walk out alone in the end but don’t know what happened exactly. This doesn’t mean he really got the key to the Book of Creation.”
“Yes, but that’s most likely what happened.”
This also meant that it wasn’t certain. Mordena relaxed slightly. To be honest, if the Ferde lord really got the so-called Book of Creation fragment, he wouldn’t know what to do.
Since it wasn’t certain, he had to figure out what had really happened and then decide what the Isle of Dawn should do. Of course, he couldn’t say what he was thinking. He decided to delay them first.
“No matter what, the Ferde lord’s threat is obvious,” he said. “I think it’s time for us to ally against him. How about we discuss the specific conditions of our alliance?”
Molina and the others obviously agreed. After that, they started discussing the specifics of their cooperation. Both sides fought for their own interests and haggled over every detail. Prince Mordena was the most difficult.
After arguing from morning to night, the agreement only had a few conditions. Something so important obviously couldn’t be completed in a day. They weren’t in a hurry either. After agreeing to continue tomorrow, they all went to rest.
Mordena and the two Inferno Warriors happened to go the same way.
On the road, Mordena cast a Soundproof Barrier and asked caringly, “I heard that you two were hurt. How are your injuries now?”
The two Warriors weren’t stupid. Exchanging glances, Hamilton asked, “Your Highness, please speak straightforwardly. The saint had told us to do everything to help you.”
“I see.” Mordena chuckled awkwardly. “I want you to go to Ferde and get some information. I must know if he got the fragment or not. This pertains to my race’s strategy. I must know clearly.”
Noa was unhappy at this. “We heard what had happened with rescuing Katyusha. Ferde is very dangerous. Your Highness, are you sending us to die?”
Mordena shook his head quickly. “No, no, of course not. The mission is a bit dangerous, but we’ve prepared well for you.”
As he spoke, he took out a scroll. Unfurling it, he revealed a map.
“Look, this is our map of Ferde’s defenses. It cost our spies a lot to draw it, but it’s highly accurate. If you follow the map, you won’t set off Ferde’s alarms… That’s not all. These are two transmission runestones. If you must escape, you can use this. The Isle of Dawn will open a long-distance transmission spell to take you back and save you. What do you think?”
These preparations weren’t insincere. He was also the saint’s father and was quite noble. After considering for half a minute, Hamilton accepted the scroll. “I can go, but I can’t ensure success. I can only try my best.”
“No problem. Just do your best.” Mordena smiled, but he was worried inside. The Inferno Warriors were so difficult. Could the Isle of Dawn truly control them after the realms fused? He wasn’t sure at all.
But the Elder Council had passed this, and it was already started. There was no room for regret. Mordena had some worries, but he could only keep going and try to make it succeed.
Canceling the Soundproof Barrier, Hamilton and Noa took the scroll and runestones. Without wasting any time, they hurried southward.
Mordena returned to the place arranged by the Dark Elves to plan the next step.
On the other hand, Dark Elf Magician leader Lawndale also walked towards his room. Dark Water Port was created by the Dark Elves, but it didn’t belong to them anymore. The Army of Destruction and demons were the new guards. The Dark Elves were the lower class, mistreated wherever they went.
Lawndale had high status, but he still had to be careful. He also had to try to help the Dark Elves so they wouldn’t become the cannon fodder. Trying to find the balance had used up much of his spirits. He wasn’t 30 yet, but his hair had already turned white.
He walked cautiously, being careful that his movements wouldn’t catch the attention of the guards. A full half hour later, he returned to his home.
As soon as he opened the door, he felt that the living room was off. The furniture hadn’t changed, but there was an unfamiliar aura. He immediately grasped his wand and cast a defense spell. Then he followed the aura timidly into the room.
There was nothing there, but the aura remained. It smelled faintly like flowers. It led him to the balcony on the second floor. There, he saw the uninvited guest in his home. Her back was to him as she gazed at a Starlight Rose.
It was a Dark Elf woman. Her side profile was already very, very, very beautiful. She also had an indescribably strong aura. Even though Lawndale had seen countless beauties before, his breathing still hitched and his heart sped up. He didn’t know such a beauty existed in his race.
What he didn’t understand was why such an extraordinary woman was unknown. She could be known throughout the entire Black Forest with just her looks.
Because they were of the same race, she was beautiful and didn’t show any animosity, Lawndale got through the initial shock and relaxed a bit. “Excuse me, who are you?” he asked.
The woman wasn’t stronger than him, but her aura was too oppressive. He reflexively spoke with respect.
The Dark Elf turned around. Her dark gold hair shimmered like pieces of starlight. Her pure black eyes blinked, and Lawndale shuddered at the light. Her side profile was already perfect. Seeing her face now, she was as mesmerizing as a goddess. Lawndale was intoxicated.
“Ellie Danas.” Eugene had already thought of a name.
Lawndale froze. He repeated the name and then exclaimed, “The lost princess? How? You’ve been missing for 300 years!”
“Has it been 300 years already?” Confusion flashed past the Dark Elf’s eyes. Her brows furrowed slightly; Lawndale wished he could smooth them for her.
“Your Majesty, what happened?” Lawndale subconsciously accepted her identity. The reason was none other than the fact that her features and aura were clearly from Dark Elf royalty. It was enough to prove her identity.
“I mistakenly entered a spatial whirlpool and recently broke free from it. I didn’t know so much time had passed. I thought it had only been 100 years,” Eugene said.
“Oh, I see. It is fortunate that you are back. Oh, the girl blessed by the gods is back. Oh, this is amazing!” Lawndale could feel that the other was at the pinnacle of Level-8 and was only around 24 years old. What did this mean? It meant that she had great potential and could become a Legendary figure.
To have such a talented royal return to a weakening race was so exciting!
On the other hand, Eugene knew everything about Lawndale’s thoughts. Waiting for him to calm down, she smiled. “Lawndale, I saw the Silver Storm Sparrow. Have we recovered our relationship with the High Elves?”
“Oh, Your Highness, the world has changed greatly. Please sit down. I will tell you what happened during these 300 years. You will need to know.”
Eugene smiled again. His body was too amazing. Not only was it talented, but it was also beautiful. No wonder this Dark Elf would freak out and call it the “girl blessed by the gods.” He’d easily shaken up the usually calm Lawndale.
Back when Lawndale went south, he could act cruelly to human beauties. This was different though. The other was a princess of his race. She was a flawless rose sparkling faintly under the starlight. He was drunk.
Thus, he tried his best and racked his brain to say everything that he knew about the mainland. Eugene listened attentively.
When Lawndale finished, Eugene fell silent as if in deep thought. A few minutes later, he chuckled lightly. “It’s not hard to deal with the Ferde lord.”
