 Chapter 444: Threats

Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio

Anfey stood on an unfinished mage tower and looked at the city. Michael had begun construction of the tower, showing how ambitious Michael and Ellisen Empire had been.

However, Anfey was too busy to think about Ellisen Empire. He closed his eyes and began meditating. He knew that he was approaching a breakthrough, and he needed to be very careful. If he couldn't control his power, he could very easily lose control. If he did, it would be disastrous for him.

He needed to be careful and alert. A lot of people would lose control of their power because they thought it was natural for their power to increase. They didn't know whether it was right for their power to increase and they left it unchecked.

Anfey wanted power. He wanted power to protect what he had and to take what he wanted. He could not allow himself to lose control of his power, because that would destroy everything he had worked for.

In the meeting earlier, he suddenly realized how bored he was with everything. He became disinterested in the mercenaries, even Glory mercenary group. Christian, Blavi, and even Suzanna's presence became meaningless to him. He knew what this change meant and he was disgusted by it, which was why he needed a quiet place to collect himself and think things through.

"Anfey," Suzanna called as she jumped up the stairs. She landed next to him lightly. She was very good at finding people, which was why sometimes she could find Anfey even if he was trying to avoid her.

"What are you doing here?"

"I'm tired," Suzanna said with a grin. "I don't like these political things."

"What about Christian?"

"They have a lot to talk about, it seems," Suzanna said with a shrug. "Can I borrow your ring?"

"Which one?"

"The one you got from Honna."

"What do you need this for?" Anfey asked as he took the ring off and handed it to Suzanna.

"You'll see," Suzanna said, putting the ring on her finger. She seemed very happy because they had just won a battle and everyone was praising her and Anfey. She may have been a top level power, but she was still young. Praise could make her very happy.

"What are you going to do with it?" Anfey asked, curious.

Suzanna shrugged and aimed the ring at Anfey. The ring did not change. Suzanna frowned. She turned the ring and aimed it at herself, and the ring bursted into a blinding, golden light. Suzanna lifted a brow and aimed the ring at Anfey again. The ring dimmed and did not light up. "Is it broken?" she asked, confused.

"Don't worry," Anfey said. "It's not." He had the Heart of Nature and was very in sync with the world. The ring was not powerful enough to detect his power.

"Tell me," Suzanna said with a frown. "Why isn't it working?"

Anfey shrugged. "It's the other type of power I was practicing. I will tell you more later."

"Is it the Sacred Inheritance?" Suzanna asked tentatively.

Anfey nodded.

"Can...can I?"

"Why can't you?" Anfey asked with a smile. "We don't keep secrets."

Suzanna nodded and smiled. She took the ring off and handed it to Anfey.

"I don't need it," Anfey said, shaking his head. He was now powerful enough to be able to detect when something was wrong in his surroundings without the assistance of the ring. "Keep it."

Suzanna let Anfey put the ring on her and said, "Can I really?" Anfey's expression was very serious, and she knew this meant that he wasn't just going to tell her about the inheritance. He was going to teach her.

"It's going to help you a lot," Anfey promised her.

"Really? You're not kidding?" Suzanna asked, her eyes widening. She thought she had already reached the top, but now Anfey was telling her that she had room for even more improvement. This made her very excited and anxious.

Anfey nodded. He could tell Suzanna had another power inside her because of the angel she once absorbed. If she could utilize it to her advantage, she could become one of the best master swordsman and could very well break through the wall no other swordsmaster had broken through for hundreds of year.

"I see," Suzanna said, nodding. She was very excited, but she was trying to keep her excitement at a manageable level.

Anfey smiled and squeezed her hand. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Hui Wei and Entos chatting in the street.

"What are they doing together?" Anfey asked, curious.

"Who knows?" Suzanna said, shrugging. "They are always together nowadays."

"Interesting," Anfey said. "Let's go take a look."

Entos and Hui Wei noticed them and turned to greet them.

Anfey looked at the two and saw the dagger in Entos's hand. It was the dagger he told Hui Wei to give to Alice. "Entos," Anfey said, realizing what the two were talking about. "Don't you want a new weapon other than your wand?"

"I'm a mage," Entos said with a sigh.

"What about today?"

"He wouldn't have done that if I hadn't asked him to change weapons," Hui Wei said, shaking his head. "He's not that smart."

Entos opened his mouth a few times, wanting to object, but did not say anything. He closed his mouth and his shoulders slumped.

"Hui Wei's right," Anfey said. "You should try some other weapons."

"What kind of weapon do you think I should try?"

"Poison," Hui Wei and Anfey said in unison.

Entos blinking, then smiled.

"We still have some wyvern," Hui Wei said. "Hagan can make a dagger for you. I wish we had a Banran Snake. They're better for making weapons."

"A priest can easily cancel out the effects of Banran Snakes' poison," Entos said.

"No one has time to do that in battle," Hui Wei argued. "A dagger like this is a waste for you."

"Fine," Entos said, shaking his head. He tossed the dagger back to Hui Wei.

"I'll go talk to Hagan," Hui Wei said.

"I'll take care of myself," Entos said. He turned to Anfey and said, "You should be paying more attention to your own troubles."

"My troubles?" Anfey asked, frowning.

"You made a name for yourself," Entos said. "Troubles will come."

Anfey nodded. "I'll look out for them," he said.
