Abe the Wizard - chapter 299
Abel no longer wanted to give Derek a hard time, so he changed the topic, “Derek, what’s my identity in the banquet?”
“Lord Bennet, you are attending the banquet as the Grand Ducal Palace’s alchemist. Grand Duke Edwina wants you to interact more with the young people at the banquet.” Derek replied.
Grand Duke Edwina wanted to use Abel’s Master Alchemist status to show off in front of the youngsters of Begro City, but what was Prince Adolf’s intention for inviting him in the first place?
Since Grand Duke Edwina had sent a steward to invite Abel, it seemed like he had no choice. It should be fun to see what this Prince was up to anyway. Afterward, Abel sent the slightly stunned Derek out of his courtyard with a smile.
When Abel went back to his master building, he could already see 2 giant wooden boxes. Inside were filled gems of all colors. It seemed like his own steward was still the best, gathering so many gems in such a short period of time. In a flick of a hand, Abel moved these 2 boxes in his Kong Kong spirit portal bag. He shouldn’t be worrying about gem shortage in a long time.
After meeting White Cloud today, Abel began to miss his family as well. He wondered if his father, the Knight of Bennett, and his mother, Nora, was doing fine? Did Zach blame him for not attending his wedding? How was his life with Emily after the marriage?
Also, how was Harry castle doing? Did the wizards still bother the Lord of Marshall? Was Master Bentham still teaching students in the blacksmith guild? Did steward Ken get back to Abel castle safely? Lastly, Wizard Morton. He had made enemies with high-level wizards to help Abel. Was he still doing ok?
Up to this point, Abel took out a communication circle from his Kong Kong spirit portal bag. Before he left the Duchy of Carmel Wizard Morton had given this to him to make communication easier. It had been quite a while since he had time. He wanted to see how his teacher was doing lately.
He placed the communication circle on the desk, took out an intermediate gem from his Kong Kong spirit portal bag, and secured it on to the socket. The patterns on the circle began to glow and slowly gathered towards the center.
This was the communication circle waiting for the other party to reply. Meanwhile, Wizard Morton was sitting on a cushion on the 11th floor of Morton magic tower surrounded by empty potion bottles. His face was pale. The battle with high-level wizards had sent his already decaying body down an even more catastrophic path. He felt his fire of life flickering away.
However, there was not a single bit of sorrow on his face. The most meaningful thing he had done in his life was having an official Wizard as his disciples, and an otherworldly genius, who was also Blacksmith master and an expertise knight as his disciple. Now all he needed to do was to hold up this worn-out body until his teacher could come out again, so Abel could return to the human world.
Up to this point, the magic tower’s control sign began to flash. His eyes began to sparkle as he held the sign in his hand. It was the communication circle he had given Abel. Abel was Ok!
The calm Wizard Morton was caught off guard all of a sudden, so he connected to the communication circle in his room a little frantically. Afterward, Abel’s voice emerged, “Teacher, Its Abel!”
Wizard Morton’s eyes began to swell when he heard this familiar voice. The battles these days had made him lose the grasp on his emotions. He used a faint shake voice to reply, “Abel, are you doing alright?”
When Abel heard his teacher’s emotionally drenched voice, his heart was filled up with warmth. It seemed like that was still someone who cared about him deeply even when he was outside of the human world.
“Teacher, everything is great!” Abel also replied in excitement.
“Abel, just hang on for a little bit longer. It shouldn’t be too long until you can come back!” Cough cough* Wizard Morton’s sudden excitement had worsened his injuries. A sudden continuous cough had disrupted their conversation.
Upon hearing the cough, Abel’s heart dropped. “Teacher, are you ok?” In his mind, his teacher was a powerful wizard who could smash his fire bolt from outside the window, carry him and move in a flash continuously, kill intermediate wizards, kill intermediate deity, even elite wizards were not a threat to him. However, now he was stopped by some cough and couldn’t even speak.
After Wizard Morton regained his breath, he said with a hoarse gentle voice, “I’m ok, just some old injuries. It should be fine if I rest for a few days!”
Abel’s face was turning red. He yelled, “Did Cliff hurt you? Teacher, give me a few days. I’ll bomb his magic tower!”
Wizard Morton didn’t want Abel to cross the line again and shut off his last bit of hope of retiring to the human world, so he quickly explained, “Abel you had crossed the line with what you did to the Duchy of Keyen last time. The orcs had been gearing up lately, so don’t try to mess with the top power of the human!”
Wizard Morton did not doubt Abel’s ability to bomb Cliff’s magic tower. As far as he knew Abel’s personality, Abel would only say something if he was very confident about it.
“Yes teacher, I understand. I’ll get someone to deliver some potions to you!” Abel didn’t want to give his teacher a hard time. With his current ability, it shouldn’t be too long until he could face the Elite Wizard Cliff head-on, even without a super exploding ball anyway.
As soon as their conversation ended, Abel jumped on Black Wind and directly speeded towards the elf Alchemy Union.
It was that female elf assistant behind the counter in the Alchemy Union again.
She looked at Abel in a somewhat confused manner. It was almost time for the Alchemy Union to close. Abel had just come here this morning, so there must be something urgent. “Master Bennett, is there a problem?”
Abel did not hesitate and just said what he wanted “I have a commission to make, help me to deliver some potions to the human world’s Morton Magic tower in Bakong City. Wizard Morton is the receiver, deliver it as soon as possible, and keep it secret!”
“Master Bennett, this won’t be a problem. But how many gold coins are you willing to pay for this commission?” Said the female elf lifting her head after writing down what Abel had just said.
“2 bottles of Lotions, and 2 Bottles of conditioner. If it’s not enough, I’ll add some more gold coins!” Said Abel as he took out 4 bottles of potion from his portal bag and placed it on the counter. He wanted to keep it low key. If paid too much, people might become suspicious.
The female elf stared at these potions with a pair of sparkling eyes “No need to add gold coins, Master Bennett. Don’t you know how popular your products are? These 2 sets of potions were enough for elf businessmen who are able to use a teleportation circle to go for you!” She said with a smile.
After a bit of hesitation, Abel placed another bottle of conditioner and another bottle of Lotion on the table. “How about this, if anyone could deliver by tomorrow, I’ll throw in these 2 bottles as rewards as well!”
“You’ll make them crazy if you do this!” The female elf assistant couldn’t help but laugh at Abel’s generosity.
This mission was uploaded according to the rules. Although the commissioner was anonymous, everyone within the Union knew who it was. With such a heavy reward, the mission didn’t even get the chance to appear in the mission list before some alchemist with some human heritage connected had taken it.
That night, when Abel was busy killing those seemingly endless Carvers in the Dark Forest, a tightly sealed box was delivered to the dwarf Moon Guardian City through an elf teleportation circle. From there, a powerful human adventure squad teleported the box to Morton Magic tower in Bakong City through another teleportation circle.
On the 11th floor of Morton Magic Tower, Wizard Morton was shocked to discover a message from his tower soul that an elite human adventure squad had a commissioned delivery for him.
