Chapter 1288: Underground City 2
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
In the lush green, white pine forest on the border of Deladia.
The scorching, crackling flames of a great fire were currently burning in
an explosive blaze. The red light soared into the sky while numerous red
Giant Hawks hovered around.
Several black-skinned elves with pointed ears rode on the backs of these
Giant Hawks. They held bows and arrows, and lances that were used for
throwing while glaring menacingly at the area where the large fires were
burning below. Dozens of red hawks circled and formed an enormous red
There was apparently a faint green semicircular shield that was currently
being supported in the center of the great fire. Five or six people were
standing scattered under the shield, they were dressed in Deladia
Empire’s military uniforms. Three of them were Wizards. There were
either three or four stars on their black wizard robes which indicated
their ranks as either Level Three or Level Four Wizards.
Kevin and his daughter Maria huddled together closely. The shield was
released by him.
“Never would I have expected that we would be captured by the Giant
Hawk Elf Forces after we had just encountered our third battle…”
There was a slightly pained look on Kevin’s face.
There were two Warriors and an Archer in this group. There was a total of
six people here including the father and daughter duo who were both Level
Four Wizards. They formed a standard match.
This was a battle group that was formed by the dragon race Contractor
Kevin to obtain the Core. When they came out to proceed with their border
hunt this time, they had never anticipated finishing their luck from the
two previous times. They had encountered a large contingent of Giant Hawk
Elf Forces this round. With the ability to fly at high altitudes and
throw burning or exploding-type weapons and arrows, these Black Elves
were the nightmares of all Wizards that were Level Five and below.
“Father, the captain of the group of Black Elves in the sky seems like
he has silver stripes. He’s definitely a high leveled existence. If we
kill him and take him back as proof, we’ll meet our quest quota for the
next two months.” Unlike Kevin’s currently pained state of mind, his
daughter Maria was brimming with confidence.
“My lord and lady, I have terrible news! Another two groups that are
being led by Contractors have arrived. They’ve surely noticed the
commotion here!” reported the only archer who was concurrently holding
another post as a scout loudly.
“We must get to work immediately, or they’ll definitely steal the
credit!” Maria urged her father.
“Don’t worry, we’re just slightly inexperienced.” Kevin exhaled
firmly. The arrival of friendly forces would be the best-case scenario.
Otherwise, it was uncertain whether he could get rid of the Giant Hawk
Forces in the sky if he could not accurately grasp the little White
Dragon that he had summoned.
Suddenly, a long and muscular Young Blue Dragon flew over from the
faraway sky. The cerulean Blue Dragon had smooth dragon scales while the
length of its body was five to six whole meters long.
“Haha, the captain of the Black Elves with Silver-Striped one as well.
My luck is actually pretty good today.”
“Houston, I discovered him first so don’t even dare of stealing my
Another Red Dragon with an even bigger physique flew over in the sky.
Shrouds of red halos were lingering around this Red Dragon’s whole
body. It was apparently a prodigious Red Dragon that naturally possessed
“Mark, do you really think that your Contractor can win a fight against
us?” It seemed that the Blue Dragon was unexpectedly not afraid of the
other party. “Although I can’t beat you, I can still stall you
temporarily. However, you Contractor is another story… haha.”
Both members of the dragon race surrounded the Black Elves in mid-air.
However, they were not rushing to put their hands to the task but were
arguing with each other instead.
Maria and the others below paced in circles frantically, unaware that
Kevin had mentally sighed in relief vigorously.
They saw that another Young White Dragon was about to appear in the sky
quickly before Kevin secretly cut off the connection of his contract
passage while the faint light of his Contract Matrix extinguished itself
on the ground naturally.
“Let’s go. There’s none of our business here anymore,” said Kevin
“Father, you’ve acted too slowly. Otherwise, this credit would have
been ours definitely,” grumbled Maria.
“It’s fine, we’ll find another place…”
Suddenly, a deep distinct voice echoed throughout the minds of all the
dragon race Contractors here.
“All Contractors, head towards the message transmission site
immediately and gather there. All Contractors, head towards the message
transmission site immediately and gather there. The location of the
unique Underground City has been discovered, and the Pearl of the Hall
may be hidden there. You must definitely fight to obtain it.”
The voice repeated itself in their heads three consecutive times.
“Pearl of the Hall…” Kevin’s mind stirred. The revolving core of
the Black Streak Empire’s Underground City — Pearl of the Hall had
numerous mystical effects.
Its most renown effect was its ability to improve aptitudes and forcibly
modify souls to increase the probability of breakthroughs for numerous
Professionals who were unable to break through their limits.
The Pearl of the Hall’s most valuable aspect was that it was a
first-rate treasure that could sufficiently increase the probability of
breaking through to Level Eight when it was used.
Furthermore, the Underground City was also the predecessor of the Black
Streak Empire and the remains of the Black Elf Empire, hence there would
definitely be an abundance of rare treasures inside it. Moreover, the
Black Elf Empire was an infamously greedy empire that possessed a myriad
of treasure and wealth.
“Must we go?” Kevin knew in his heart that he had no other choice.
This question was undoubtedly insignificant. Military orders could not be
defied and his misdemeanors would definitely be recorded if he did not
go. Since he was currently wearing his badge now, there was no leeway for
him to struggle at all. He was worried that the little White Dragon that
he had contracted was not even at Level Five… if he rushed in like
this, would it really be alright?
Unlike his fearful and dispirited self, Maria and the few other Warriors
were enthusiastic now after Kevin had relayed this information to them.
“Underground City, huh. Although we certainly won’t be able to obtain
the Pearl of the Temple, there is an abundance of treasures there. As
long as we can get a few random antiques or good items, we will
definitely earn a lot of money if we sell them!”
Maria was very knowledgeable and knew many rumors regarding the
Wizards belonged to a profession that included huge expenditures. They
only had the right to upgrade their own levels without having to consider
about wastages or depletion once they had a sufficient amount of money.
“Let’s go then…” Kevin glanced at the few members of the dragon
race in the sky one last time. The few dragons that arrived after that
had already started to slaughter the large contingents of Black Elves
that were escaping in the sky. Seeing the power and ferocity of these
dragons that belonged to other people, he lost even more confidence in
his own contracted dragon.
His dragon was already a member of the weakest White Dragon Clan.
Moreover, he was also a Dragon Whelp… The average Dragon Whelps were
mostly only at Level Four.
The surrounding flames weakened when Maria used her staff to release a
Hydropower Spell. This Level Three Spell induced a small amount of
rainwater that fully drenched the surrounding areas that were covered in
flames earlier before the high temperatures were lowered by the water
Kevin chanted a few sentences quietly and waved his hand to release a
Level One Squall Spell that blew the water vapor away.
The group then rushed speedily towards the direction that Kevin was
White Dragon Clan Elder’s Peak
A shroud of ripples had instantly appeared in mid-air in the cave where
Garen stayed. Garen charged out of the ripples in one go and appeared
disorderly from head to toe.
“Damn Kevin!!” he cursed loudly and furiously. His expression was
He was passing through space when the summoning of his contract was
abruptly severed on the other side. This caused him to frenziedly crash
head-first into the Spatial Barrier that had closed in front of him.
Next, he rolled around and was dragged back like a tractor while being
inflicted with vertigo along the way.
The inexperienced, useless Wizard over there was actually unaware that
one-sidedly ending a contract without prior information would cause the
Contractor on the other side to be seriously injured at any time because
they could not react promptly?!!
If he had neither possessed exceptionally agile reflexes or qualities
that were incomparable and far beyond that of the average Young Dragon,
he would probably be completely and heavily wounded because of this.
Regardless of one’s level, the slightest problem when passing through a
space portal would surely be a major issue.
When he landed in his own clean ice cave, Garen panted hoarsely in an
extremely indignant manner. He saw that his entire body was covered in
dark blue bruises. These injuries were formed when he crashed around in
the space passage. He was extremely furious.
“Don’t even think that I’ll put in any effort for you the next time
you summon me!” Garen was furious. He was initially already impatient
with that penniless good-for-nothing Summoner. He had never expected that
the other party would actually still dare to pull this move.
He already had thoughts of instantly severing contact with him if he did
not have to wait for the contract time to arrive as he could only be
relieved after the battle ended.
Several days later…
At the edge of an enormous underground abyss on the border of Deladia.
More than ten battle units had gathered in a temporary campsite at the
The campsite was arranged in a circle while transparent floating Sentinel
Eyes were installed in its surroundings. These were guarding devices that
were created by the Wizards which could be repeatedly used for ten times.
More than ten units had their own large tents in the campsite. Hints of
black patterns that were deeply engraved could be faintly seen on the
edges of the largest tent.
Every single person at the campsite was currently standing outside their
tents, while more than ten units of dragon race Contractors were all
looking at a man in blue armor who was standing at a high place.
The man’s features were as beautiful as a woman while his short blue
hair was raised up high like a blaze of fire. His body was slender and
tall, and he wore exquisite dark gold crescent-shaped studded earrings on
both of his ears.
The man crossed his arms at his chest and looked down from above at all
of the other dragon race Contractors below him. He gave off an agile and
brave but arrogant attitude.
“I’m Blue Void Reisman. I’ve temporarily gathered all of the nearby
Contractors here. In the name of the royal family, I shall be the highest
in command here. Honorable lords and ladies, are there any objections?”
He said in a low and deep voice.
“No objections. If Master Blue Void is leading the group, I think that
we won’t have to worry about any danger,” said a white and
grey-haired elderly Wizard softly as he stepped forward. Although he had
spoken quietly, his voice was amplified by his spells to the extent that
it resounded through their surroundings.
“I don’t think that there’ll be any issues if we’re led by Master
Blue Void of the White Knights who has been renowned for a long period of
time,” agreed another voice.
“Rumor has it that Master Blue Void is about to advance to Level Seven.
Being able to reach this stage at twenty-six years of age is worthy
of…” the voice trailed off.
A middle-aged female Wizard stood forward.
“I was wondering if Master had a deeper understanding of the
Underground City? Our sixteen Contractors here have gathered the strength
of sixteen members of the dragon race. It’s unlikely that it will be
dangerous in there. However, obtaining the greatest benefits and
snatching them from those Black Ghosts will depend on the leadership
Blue Void’s expression remained unchanged.
“I have a map relevant to the Underground City, and I’ve also
prepared some methods to counter and get rid of some sections of certain
organizations. I only need the assistance of your honorable selves in
certain places to help me conserve strength in those areas.”
Kevin and his daughter were standing in their own unit while looking at
Blue Void who was on the platform far away.
“Level Seven at twenty-six years old… Truly amazing.”
“It doesn’t matter because I won’t lose to him!” said Maria
However, Kevin knew the difficulty of wanting to break through Level
Four. For humans, breaking through Level Four meant crossing a threshold
of qualitative changes. Even though numerous people had advanced to Level
Four when they were only ten years of age or older, there are also those
who were delayed at Level Five for over an entire decade and were still
around. Moreover, they would need to exhaust even more resources, time,
and energy when they reached Level Six after that, and almost a few times
worth as well. Results such as achieving Level Seven at twenty-six years
of age was an impossible stage to accomplish for the average Professional
and even prodigy who did not possess the great forces, resources, and
priceless support that the royals received.
