Chapter 95: Next (2)

Translator: Leo Editor: DarkGem/Frappe

On the second floor of a manor opposite the statue, Angele was standing on a balcony with a cup of hot chocolate in hand. He was wearing black pajamas and taking sips from the cup.

He put his other hand on the railing and looked down. Only Tia and he lived in the manor. She cleaned the whole manor every day, did grocery shopping, and also cooked food for Angele. Tia took care of many things for him, and he sometimes thought he was getting lazy.

This manor, or actually the whole housing area, was haunted according to Tinos. The price of the manors here had dropped a lot, and most of the owners had moved to other places, so Angele purchased all the manors in the area.

There were about ten of them, and Angele purchased them all. He built up the mental fences around the manors and hired guards to patrol. He was paying for pretty much everything, including the workers’ salaries, street cleaning, and garden maintenance.

Rumors said those manors were haunted, but Angele had not encountered any strange events yet.

*HOO*

The wind was chilling. Angele sipped some more hot chocolate and walked inside the room. The hot chocolate he was drinking was made from a special plant he fell in love with it after having it in Master Adolf’s house.

He returned to his bedroom and sat down beside the desk. There was flame dancing in the glass oil lamp on top of it.

Beside the oil lamp, there was a leather scroll sealed with a tight red line. Angele picked it up and broke the seal.

There were two glass sticks on both edges of the scroll, so he could open it easily by rolling them to the side.

On the scroll, some data was written with black ink:

‘21st: East side of the city, four unknown targets disappeared.

22nd: Three carriages disappeared by the dock.

23rd: Hunters reported a man in a black robe disappearing by the logging site.

24th: Merchants heard beasts roaring by the west side of the forest.

27th: Three man in white cloaks left the city quickly after buying supplies.



15th November: Merchants found bodies of bandits outside the city.’

Angele kept reading all the logs, his brow furrowed. He spent a hefty amount of money on these logs from the mercenary guild, and almost every event that had happened inside or outside the city in the last two months was written down on it.

People in Lennon didn’t know that the Wizard organization that was famous for its Necromancy and cruelty, Ramsoda College, was very close to their city. Those strange events the mercenaries had encountered did not bother them since they had no idea what those people were doing.

However, Angele knew those strange events could mean the situation had changed in his school.

“It looks like the war is almost over.”

He carefully sealed the scroll with the red line again and put it into the drawer.

Based on that information, Angele concluded that some of the Wizards and apprentices that left the school were returning to it.

‘Before that, I need to go to the Moon Gin Manor first. It’s better if I can obtain the Dragon Scale Flowers before going back to the school,’ Angele he decided, establishing the plan.

‘I need something more valuable than what I have in hand to trade for the Water of Asu and the defensive spell model.’ He scrunched his eyebrows again. ‘Without resources, I won’t get anything from the school. I need to get enough items to obtain Water of Asu and the defensive spell model first. I’ll be able to try to break the limit after everything is prepared.’
