With a loud bang, everyone could see a golden light shooting out in all directions from the object. Then from the flashes of light, a magic mark shot out from the scroll.
“Humph, calling for help from his companions eh?” Clark frowned; he didn’t know where these two holy knights are from. Unlike Du Wei, Clark only thought these two were alone and didn’t come in such a big force. Seeing the opportunity presented at the time, Clark simply wanted to punish them a bit. But now, he realized the situation was bad when he saw the magic scroll because it was the Holy Knight’s way of calling for help.
These two Holy Knights only came into town first to organize things for the main force. Following closely behind, the main force wouldn’t be far away and should be arriving soon.
Thinking up to this point, Clark could not help but privately blame Du Wei for being a busy body. If that sword had killed the two Knights, the matter would have ended then and there. Once the deed was done, he could just push all the blame onto the garrison troops. But now that they are alive, he wouldn’t have any excuses if the other party were to seek revenge.
However, Clark suddenly recalled how Du Wei managed to cast magic. Narrowing his eyes, he aimed his sight at Du Wei.
This kid, I have already assessed him in the past. He is destined not to be a wizard! But the two fireballs he cast earlier was so quick! Could it be that Lord Magister Gandalf taught him?
Ignoring Clark, Du Wei had already stood up and was walking towards the mess. This time around, the two knights were completely bundled up and even their mouths were plugged up. Taking a look at the crumpled garrison officer, he couldn’t help but sigh. Du Wei feared that this guy will be facing some rough times after this. Technically speaking, these soldiers were sent to protect him, so he can’t just leave them be and let the temple punish them.
Thinking things through, Du Wei called over the officer and whispered: “You’ve got trouble on your hands.” The 109th “knocked out teeth swallowed in the belly” (part two)
Still unaware, the officer pleaded in a loud voice: “Master Du Wei, you don’t have to worry about these kinds of reckless behavior. Every month we would beat up a few of these mercenaries because they always go on a rampage, so it’s not a big deal.”
Du Wei sighed and then smiled: “I was sitting too far earlier and didn’t notice, but now that I took a closer look, they are indeed people from the Temple!”
When this was known, the officer immediately went stupid. With eyes of disbelief, the colors in his eyes revealed the panic he was in. In addition, all the soldiers by his side turned pale!
Beating up Holy Knights, what are we going to do?
Smiling a bit, Du Wei gently patted the officer’s shoulder: “Alright, technically speaking, you are the ones responsible for protecting us. For that, I can’t just watch you suffer. Now listen to my words, I can help you with this.”
After a pause, Du Wei spoke the next words with a smile: “These two are only subordinates used to scout ahead. Following soon behind, there must be a high leveled knight. Now that you have injured their men, the senior Holy Knight will come seeking revenge and you won’t be able to resist. I have an idea that will force them to back off quietly.”
With that said, Du Wei took a look at the soldiers and continued, “I want a person, that individual must have a bit of courage and intellect. I fear this matter may be dangerous and the person may even suffer some pain. But don’t worry, it won’t be something serious. So who dares to come forth?”
The garrison officer immediately puffed up his chest and cried out: “I’ll go!”
Taking one look at his eyes, Du Wei could tell this person is someone with courage. For that, he couldn’t help but feel a sense of admiration towards the officer: “Alright, it’s settled then.”
With a slight smile, Du Wei continued speaking: “This issue may seem resolved on the surface, but someone will inevitably come seeking trouble. So after you’re done, return to the barracks and tell your commanding officer that I want you. Once you are released from the military ranks, you can come to me, I’ll put you into the Rowling Calvary unit.”
After listening to his words, the officer immediately became overjoyed!
In these Northern lands, the commanding department only considers the Northern Storm Regiment to be their dearest fighting force. Therefore, the Northern Storm Regiment always gets priority on whatever goods that is available. So even if the garrison troops here want anything, they must first yield to the other party before they can get their share. In conclusion, this place doesn’t have any future. If he can somehow stay by Du Wei’s side, then of course it would be much better than being a small little officer at this place!
Seeing Du Wei give out such instructions, Clark squinted his eyes and looked at him from behind with a complex expression.
The child…… Is not simple.
Later, outside the town of Kolo, a company of 80 riders was slowly closing in on the city gates. Suddenly, two of the Temple elders in their company frowned at what they saw. Pointing their fingers, the two whispered to those nearby, “look!”
From within the city, a golden light shot towards the sky. This light was exactly the distress signal sent out by the two Holy Knights earlier.
Leading the company, the eighth level Holy Knight suddenly turned pale on his face: “This place actually has people daring enough to attack those from the Temple?! Pausing for a moment in thought, he suddenly shouted: “Did they meet Hussein?! Fast! We must go into town! If it is Hussein, we must not let him get away!”
With that said, the eighth level knight looked towards the two elders seeking confirmation. Contrary to what he was expecting, the two elders shook their heads instead: “Shouldn’t be. If it is Hussein, the two wouldn’t even survive a single sword strike. So where would they get an opportunity to call for help?”
These two individuals wearing priest robes of high rank looked proper and dignified due to the long white hair and staff in their hands. Not even the eighth level knight dared to go against them. In a respectful tone, he whispered: “No matter what, we should go and see.”
Picking up their pace, the company of riders rode into town. It was then; they saw someone heading towards them with three horses and it just so happens, the one riding in the front is the garrison officer. Behind him, the two Holy Knights rode on the remaining two horses, but unlike him these two were heavily tied up with ropes and even their mouths were gagged.
Watching so many Holy Knights coming his way, the garrison officer was in fact really scared: Geez, so many people. If they all came looking for trouble, I wouldn’t be able to swallow it all!
Jumping down from his horse, the officer stood in the middle of the road to block their way.
Seeing someone blocking their way, the company of riders had to quickly slow down their horses and the knight in the forefront yelled: “Why are you blocking the way!”
Following Du Wei’s instruction, the garrison officer stood tall and adopted an unyielding expression as he performed a standard knight salute.
Seeing the foe in front of him acting in such a manner, the Holy Knight did not neglect and returned a proper knight salute.
“I am a garrison officer belonging to the fourth battalion of the City of Colo.!” Following Du Wei’s instruction, the officer deliberately used the loudest voice he can to speak these words.
Seeing such a large force of Holy Knights in the middle of the road and an officer suddenly shouting, the people in the surroundings started to gather to watch the show.
Encouraged by the Knight’s reaction, the garrison officer felt relieved and continued to speak loudly: “Excuse me, are you Holy Knights?”
The eighth level knight leading the company had long seen his own subordinates restrained on the two horses behind the officer. With a darkened face, the Holy Knight rode forward and looked angrily at the lowly third level rider in front of him: “Yes.”
“Your honor.” The garrison officer bowed slightly in respect and continued to speak in a loud voice: “Garrison army orders! 600 steps ahead have been temporarily closed off as a military zone! Earlier, these two men posing as Knights of divine identity had trespassed onto the restricted area. Also, they injured 36 people from the garrison army and 15 of them are in serious condition! Under orders, I have arrested these two. Now that your honor is present, I will hand over the two culprits to you! My lord said the Holy Knights Platoon is the symbol of the glory of the temple. Thus, they are the continents subject of admiration!
These despicable criminals actually dare defy the imperial decree and intrude onto a military zone. In addition, they openly attacked the imperial officers and wounded the soldiers of the Empire! Such people are definitely not members of the Holy Knights Platoon. Now that I have brought them here, I’ll hand them over to you!
With that said, the garrison officer performed another Knight salute and then walked backwards to where the two captured knights were. Using his hands, he pushed them off their horses and caused the two to drop heavily onto the ground.
Seeing the suffering of their companions, all of the Holy Knights had the flames of anger in their eyes. If not for the eighth level knight making a grunting sound to signal them not to move, it was certain they would have rushed forward and chopped the garrison officer into pieces.
Unknown to everyone, the garrison officer was also in cold sweat. With one big movement, he got onto his horse and big his farewell with a nod. However, just when he was about to leave, the eighth level knight suddenly shouted “Wait!”
“Your honor, do you have other instructions?”
“Humph!” The eyes of the eighth level Knight were filled with hate. Jumping off his horse, he walked forward and picked up one of his tied up subordinate with one hand. Afterwards, he gave the officer a deep look as he clenched his teeth: “Give my regards to your master! Tell him I’ll remember this event!”
With that, the knight lets out a “humph” sound that was filled with his Dou QI. From just the sound, the officer felt like he was struck by lightning. Thus, his whole body was quivering and his chest felt especially painful. Not certain of the reason, his horse suddenly ran forward, causing him to lose his balance. With a loud scream, the officer from his horse..
In this one fall, the officer felt like all his bones were broken. Stumbling in his attempt to get back up, he didn’t dare show any form of emotion on his face. Secretly in his heart, he was actually thinking this isn’t bad at all. After beating up two of their people and then causing their entire company to lose face in front of all these people, this isn’t bad at all! It’s a good trade!
Now daring to say anything, the officer hurriedly snapped up onto his horse again and rushed away.
“My Lord, are we just going to leave it like this?!” A Holy Knight rode forward, his face full of anger.
The 80 Calvary riders behind the leader were waiting. With one order from him, all of them would rush forward to get their revenge!
“Just shut up!” The leaders face was cold. Using his gloomy eyes, his gaze swept across all his men. Then in a hushed tone: “Think we are not shamed enough yet?!”
The two Temple elders also let out a sigh and gave each other a look.
The other party got good methods! First, make their side to be in the right, and then deliberately announce this in public to force us to eat this humiliation. If we seek revenge now and the news spreads, the reputation of the Holy Knights will be damaged.
The leader got back onto his mount and shouted: “Hurry and pull both of these idiots onto the horse! Let’s go! We won’t stay here anymore tonight. Instead, we will journey through the night!”
Seeing the scowl on their leaders face, all the knights dare not disobey.
Unlike the rest, the two elders showed a look of appreciation towards the eighth level knight.
Seems like a person of high talent; able to endure and someone of high discretion.
Now that the three leaders of the Holy Knight Platoon are gone, the temple is currently seeking new talent to promote. This guy is promising. 110th chapter “Rights from playing dumb”
Within the closely guarded inn of the City of Colo, one of the rooms inside were closely guarded by several magicians that had come from the capital’s magician’s union. Moreover, the several magicians standing outside the doorway even put up a noise cancellation spell. This way, no trace of the conversation happening inside could be heard from the outside.
Inside the room, Du Wei sat on the opposite end of Clark because the gray bearded magician is currently staring at him with eyes full of suspicion.
Despite this, Du Wei’s face looked relaxed and even picked up a cup of black tea to sip. In the northern region, tea can be considered rare and hard to come by. So without a doubt, these tea leaves must have been transported here through trading caravans from the south. The only problem is that after air drying and long periods of travel time, the taste of the tea would inevitably degrade once it got here.
Du Wei was feeling good right now, but Clark on the other hand is feeling somewhat difficult after hearing the story from Du Wei’s mouth: “What you say is true?”
Du Wei immediately stiffened his face and spoke sternly: “Master Clark, you are a man of great capacity. Even though you are gifted with the title of a mage, but you cannot unjustly question the honest character of a gentleman! Every word I said is to be true, I’ll swear to the great Goddess of light!”
Clark is somewhat fidgety, but after seeing Du Wei’s stern expression…… He can’t simply be angry at a little child now can he? After all, he is a famous Grand Mage.
However, what Du Wei said may be too……
For the last great Magister and famed as the strongest magician on the continent, to be killed after being besieged by several magical beasts from the frozen forest?
Who would believe such a thing?
Is there even a magical beast on the continent capable of killing Master Gandalf? Unless it is a dragon or a heavenly beast, then that’s more like it!
“It is what it is.” Du Wei looked emotional: “He promised to take me traveling through the frozen forest, hoping I could grow a little more insight and hone myself a bit. But who would have thought the frozen forest is so menacing. In the end, we were ambushed by a pack of wolf kings! Cornered, teacher released his mighty powers and finally managed to kill them all. Unfortunately, we ended up encountering another evil faced spider queen in the north. With all of his energy depleted, teacher used the last option he had left, and that was using his life to take out his foe…….”
“You say ‘teacher’?” Clark noticed something wrong in the way Du Wei was speaking!
“Yes.” Du Wei continued to knit bad lies: “A month ago when he came to the Roland Plains, teacher and I hit it off right away. He said I’m talented and accepted me as his closed door disciple. This is absolutely not a fake!”
“Accepted…… Disciple?” Clark has begun to sweat.
Who is Gandalf? He is the continents last Magister!
A Magister is not a magician ranking within the ten magic rankings. Even if one were to reach the tenth level in magic, they can’t be called a Magister.
In a sense, the title of Magister is not a standard to measure someone’s magical strength. But rather, it is an honor or qualification.
According to the Roland Continent’s magic system, only those that have taught over two disciples at the eighth level can be considered qualified to be called a Magister. However, only those that have tutored their disciples up to the ninth level can they be called a Magister.
This is equivalent to a university professor.
Of course, if one can tutor a disciple up to the ninth level, then it goes without saying that the teacher’s true strength is above them all.
To be accepted as a disciple of Master Gandalf. What kind of concept is that?
In fact, based on Gandalf’s status and seniority, he did not accept many disciples in his 260 year life span. However, if you were to randomly pick one out the group, they would always eventually become famed and distinctly powerful individuals of the continent!
Even the former and current president of the Magician’s Union is Gandalf’s apprentice! This way, Du Wei and their seniority are the same…… Now what is that?
Thinking this through, wouldn’t Du Wei and the President be from the same generation?
And let’s not forget the monstrous old magicians within the magician’s union. All of those monsters are also students of Gandalf. With the sudden turn of events, Du Wei had suddenly become their little junior……
Swallowing his saliva, Clark unconsciously straightened his back as he spoke: “So….. You…… Hmm, Sir, has been accepted by Master Gandalf as his inner disciple?”
“That’s correct.” Du Wei’s calm tone is truly like eating Bok Choy when it came to lying.
From the information he managed to piece together after being questioned by Clark, Du Wei somehow figured out the relationship between the magician’s Union and Gandalf. If his conclusion came out to be negative, Du Wei would have pushed his relation clean with Gandalf. However, the information he got so far has been quite positive.
The numbers of Gandalf’s disciple still living in the magician’s union are about three. Each and every one of these old monsters is around 200 years old. Also, their true strength is no less than the ninth level in magic. Even the current president of the union must show some face in their present.
And the most recent news of Gandalf accepting a new disciple was a few years ago. That year, Gandalf brought with him a little stuttering girl (Vivian) to participate in the magic assessment. As a result, the bunch of old guys there nearly mopped the floor with their jaws because they were so shocked that a little girl of her age is already at the eighth level!
However, this matter was classified as a secret. If not for the relationship between the mission and Master Gandalf, Clark would never have been cleared for this information.
Clark is after all someone from the capital; he wouldn’t so easily believe everything Du Wei said. Continuing, Clark questioned Du Wei a bit more.
“Dear Du Wei.” Clark coughs once and his manner of speaking was much more polite. With his status as a magician, Clark would never have shown such courtesy towards a regular person, even if that person is someone from a prestigious family like Du Wei. However, it is another matter now that Du Wei has somehow connected himself with the famed Master Gandalf: “Just so you know this matter is very serious. I have to find out the details and then report it back to the Union. Once that is complete, we can then clarify your identity and a formal recognition will be granted by the union…… Ugh, first of all, when you first saw Master Gandalf, how did he accept you as his apprentice?”
Du Wei grabbed an apple on the table before him and ruthlessly took a bite before speaking in a normal expression:
“Ah, this is how. The first time teacher saw me; he shouted towards me and said ‘boy, I see your bone structure is excellent and can only be found once in a million individuals. You are perfect in practicing magic! As a present for our meeting, here are a few basic magic books for you. From now on, the burden of maintaining world peace and fighting off villains will be handed to you.”
Looking at the big mouthed chewing an Apple Du Wei; Clark suddenly had a feeling of wanting to laugh and cry because he is currently faced with a child not even at the age of 14 and listening to his outlandish and childish stories.
However, the big problem lies in whether Du Wei is truly Gandalf’s disciple.
Continuing, Clark carefully questioned Du Wei a few more times. Unfortunately for Clark, this time Du Wei only vaguely addressed the questions and started to act like a foolish child. The answers he got were either he did not know, or he can’t remember.
Anyways, Gandalf is after all a legendary figure. For such an amazing person to want such a young child to be his disciple, then they would of course have their own ways of thinking. So how could a small child understand the reasoning behind this? – This is a perfect excuse. Du Wei found that his age was a very good defense because a child is born with the right to play the fool; after all, who can anyone take a young child seriously?
After spending half a day like this, Clark may have been befuddled by what he learned so far, but the old guy still believed Du Wei’s story up to ninety to eighty percent.
Clark had long known about Du Wei and had personally tested his talent at an early age. Despite the fact that his innate magic is superior to others, but his poor sense of the elements in the surrounding hindered him from learning magic. Also, from the recorded feedbacks, Du Wei is only a young master capable of pulling off pranks before he was taken away by Master Gandalf.
But now, Clark could clearly see the power of magic in Du Wei! When dealing with the two Holy Knights, Du Wei promptly shot out two fireballs in one breath. That cannot be questioned! And the way he released those fireballs, his movements looked well-honed and not something he learned recently.
