Chapter 10: Furious (Part 1)

Translator: Leo Editor: DarkGem/Frappe

It did not take too long for Angele to reach the special library on the third floor. He took out the key and unlocked the door. The room had no light at all, and it was very dark. Angele closed the door carefully, and he locked it. He lit the candle on the table, then finally seeing the room clearly.

There were three bookshelves in the room, but they were not completely filled up with books. The books were made out of leather; they looked heavy, and were very thick. Angele walked to the back of the third bookshelf. According to his memory, there was a strange book at the back of the bookshelf that was full of bizarre information, and he sometimes read it to kill time.

He also took out someone’s biography, and he walked to a reading desk. He started to read carefully. After a while, the candle was nearly out. He finally found a page with an image of the black card he had obtained. He took out his card and compared them carefully, and they were completely similar.

“That’s it!” Angele said, and he started checking the words at the side of the image.

Dark Emblem, an assassin organization across several countries. Their targets would receive black cards before the assassins would actually kill them. There was only one sentence by its side, but it was enough for Angele to understand what was going on.

“That guy will be coming for me.” Angele said, and he started to worry again.

‘Fear won’t help me anyway. I need to find a way to deal with him.’ He calmed down quickly this time and thought clearly. He thought over his day when he was in the bathroom, and he could calm down much faster now.

‘I’ve died once. It’s fine if I die again.’ He laughed.

‘Zero, did you get the data of the man that attacked me?’ He asked Zero in his mind.

‘Data collected and marked as Dataset 1. Name Unknown: Strength 4, Agility 1.5, Stamina 5. Weapon category: chain hook, longsword, knife.’ Zero reported.

‘Holy, how did I survive that…’ Angele thought.

‘He was poisoned before engaging.’ Zero reported.

‘Poisoned?’ Angele was trying to remember what happened before the chase. He shot an arrow, and it probably hit the man. He started dipping his arrowheads with the venom sacs he had found from red single-eyed snakes, and he could easily track down the preys if they were hit. He would burn the wounds to remove the poison if he wanted to eat them.

Angele started to scan through the biography quickly and used the chip to store all the information. He could search the data easily after, and it was like he only needed one second to scan all the words on the pages.

Besides the information about the black card, Angele also had something else he wanted to know. There was a record of a certain small flower. The author stated that there was a flower could make people become very strong within a duration. However, the aftermath was brutal as the people who ate the flower to fight their enemies all died afterwards. It looked like they died due to sudden heart attacks.

Angele stored the picture of the flower into his chip, and the flower had a fire-like red color. He went through the two books again before putting them back. He heard the footsteps of someone before he tried putting out the candle.

The door opened with a ‘Ka Cha’ sound, and the baron walked in with a serious face. He did not expect someone to be in the library, and he looked at Angele.

“Angele, still reading?” The baron asked.

“Yes, father.” Angele saluted, and he spoke with a light voice. “I am heading back.” He said.

“Alright.” The baron was not in the mood to talk. His hair was all over his shoulders, and he looked very tired.

Angele did not know what to say, and he decided to just leave instead.

“Wait.” The baron asked before Angele could go down the stairs. “I will send you to the Noman city, your aunt’s place. I am pretty busy recently, and I probably won’t have time for you. You can have a good rest there. What do you think?” He asked.

Angele turned back; it was actually a charming offer. He might escape the assassin if that man came for him.

“What’s this smell? Some fragrance from women? Angele, you need to control yourself, don’t spend too much time on it.” Before Angele could answer, the baron stopped him and said that.

“I…” Angele was trying to explain.

“Well, never mind. Go have some rest.” The baron stopped him.

Angele did not say anything; he left the room after seeing the baron waving his hands. Angele could hear his own footsteps in the darkness.

Angele walked down the stairs; he could see light coming out of the special library. He was a bit confused.

‘Check my body condition.’ Angele said.

‘Angele Rio. Body condition: Strength 0.8, Agility 2.4, Stamina 1.6. Status: Healthy, but with a special fragrance.’ Zero reported.

‘Special fragrance?’ Angele was surprised. ‘When did I get it, and where did it come from?’ He asked.

‘You got it before leaving the forest, and the smell comes from your right feet.’ Zero reported, and it showed Angele the graph of his body. Angele could see some blue circles around his right feet.

Angele confirmed his guess; the man in black left it on him. It was probably used for tracking. He ran into the bathroom again and asked the maid to bring him a bucket of water. He put his right feet into the bucket and started to wash thoroughly.

‘Is it still on my feet?’ Angele asked after washing for a while.

‘The concentration was not lowered.’ Chip replied.

‘I knew it would not be gone that easy.’ He thought; the fragrance was probably made for tracking.

‘He really wants me dead…’ He thought.

“Let’s see who is going to survive next time…” Angele whispered, and his face became solemn.
