**********************************MAIN STORY*************************************
Currently, the story is still progressing at the magic hall.
The three adepts, who stood by the pestle, were looking suspiciously at the already imprisoned Green and Mary. Moreover, Alice whom everyone had lost contact to, was lying quietly at the corner of the hall and has lost her consciousness.
Among the three men, Green only knew one of the adepts, called Kogan, while the other two were the adepts of the Saloubo family. One of the adepts of the Saloubo family, was an old man wearing a black robe, although his body was not releasing an amazing spirit fluctuation nevertheless, whenever Green's eyes made contact with his, there was a feeling of freezing chill down his spine.
"Anderson is dead?" The Black robe old man coldly asked.
The other two adepts stayed dead silent, without any desire to speak. Although Green wanted to reply, but since he didn't understand his predicament with the Salucco family, he dared not to speak more than necessary, as speaking too much may cause more harm later therefore, he just nodded silently.
"Retards are of course retards! Cowards like him are same as soft-shell eggs and was even killed by his own apprentices, he is purely a retard!" The black robe old man leaned towards one of his subordinates and said: "You go and see how much of Anderson is left!"
The Kogan adepts subordinate bowed and turned away. If the space barrier was not broken, it won't be too difficult to find, but since a big hole in the space barrier, it was relatively easy to find.
After a moment, the Kogan's subordinate returns with his hands carrying Anderson's remains. But to their horror, his remains had been mingled and drilled out by countless black scorpions.
"He is truly dead!" The black robe old man coldly said" Looks like a good deal for us! Trading a retard for three adepts, we are not at a loss! "
Green looked slightly down and covered his eyes in horror. From the conversation of the second-order adepts, it was clear that the Saloubo family knew Anderson's every move, and even the blood sacrifices that he arranged secretly. It is conceivable that if the Anderson Adepts succeed and become a second-order adept, then the group of people should come to congratulate him and sign a new witchcraft contract with him.
From this icy reality, it reveals the fact that the life of the apprentice in the eyes of these official adepts are simply a resource that can be freely accessible and to be consumed if necessary. Perhaps the adepts at high-level are strictly prohibited this kind of behavior, but for each adept family, as long as they can enhance the power of their own family, such things are rather common!
Since the Saloubo family is also looking forward to the Anderson Adepts to be successful, then now how will they dispose of Green and Mary? Shit, that Evil Worms still did not die. Looking at the situation, Evil Worms used Anderson's magic force from his remains and promoted himself into an adept!
Green mind thoughts were chaotic, and he no longer bothered to think. He took a deep breath and wait for the second-order adept to decide. The Adepts are the most valuable property in any family, and cannot easily be discarded and wasted, so it will be impossible to kill them for Anderson's revenge. Most likely, they will face a far more stringent than the normal agreement witchcraft contract!
"Still hiding in there? Come out also let me see what are you made of! You were actually able to devour the Andersen down to the bones! "
Near the second-order adept, countless scorpions from the human eye socket eyes and ears and other holes in the crazy gush, and then again condensed out of the Nirvana into a terrible shaped human body. In the face of second-order adepts, even the gloomy introverted Evil Bugs also trembled and respectfully bowed to them and waiting for his fate. Kougan's cold eyes fell on Anderson's remains which had been left, then turned and glanced at three people, while saying "Master Fergen, how do you want to deal with them?"
"Well, what can be done? Sign a contract and throw them to the battlefield. Originally this errand was Anderson's share but since he is gone, let the three takes his place. If they live then they can naturally enjoy the treatment of family, if they die then they can just blame their fate is not good enough! "
Hearing those words, Green and the others were disappointed but were somewhat also relieved.
How does the battlefield look like? How come we have never heard of it? Is it very dangerous?
A series of questions flashed in Green's mind. Although though the chip can access to the knowledge of witchcraft and ancient legend, but very little about the plane war is known. Even if some books mentioned the surface war, but also a half-assed, not elaborate hence, it is difficult to predict what might happen. The reason for this situation was probably due to a high-level adept purposely blocking the information from leaking out. It seems that everything about the surface war is not a place where an ordinary adept apprentice can get involved!
After what Anderson did, all the adept apprentice died on the ground, and caused the magic swamp resource point to be completely paralyze. Three adepts from the Saloubo family, in addition to the pressure of the second-order adept Fergus and the Kougan adept, the other adept also came to replace Anderson and took over the swamp tower. If a formal adept sits here for around three or five years, this place will come back to life. But as for Green, Mary, and Evil Bugs, they can only return to the family manor with the Ferguson, to wait for the beginning of the war. In the blink of an eye, the magic swamp where he once lived for seven years has now become a past and reminiscent of Green's long-life journey.
Saloubo family manor, Fernando City.
Green passed through the bustling streets and silently walked into the street where the secret hut was located.
This Goblin shop is special for selling off innovative alchemy items and currently inside its owner Goblin Kobe was standing on a wooden stool while speaking loudly to two female and one male adept apprentice enthusiastically marketing his magical alchemy device, which was acquired from the goblin communication sphere.
Highlights of the items included:
Rocket boots that are able to instantly propel the user forward, but may cause fatal injuries if there is any rock or obstacle in front(sometimes ... just only sometimes it will explode, so ...)

Able to create a full cover type of energy shield magic core (remember, pick up the magic core on the ground and kowtow to see the energy shield. If you do not see ... please kowtow a few more times!)

Can take you to fly you to heaven (both literally and figuratively) series Goblin aircraft.

Can make you return safely to the ground with this parachute cloak (this seems to be a standard on the item, or how you come down after you go up. Well, free landing is also a good choice!)
Green frowned while looking at the shop's inside from auditorium to alchemy devices, although his heart was full of disdain, he did not spoke any words.
Such a thing for the current him has now been deemed useless nevertheless, due to the lack of life-saving means for the apprentice, these items are a good choice.
Although the Goblin shop's items have many problems of various scales, but each one can play an important role and even save lives in a moment of crisis!
At least there had been zero returns form apprentices after Kobe had opened the store for a month. Of course, that is, if they were still alive to return the item.
See Green's arrival, Goblin kobe immediately gave up on the three apprentices, jumped out of the stool and ran in front of him to say hello. The three apprentices had some look unhappy, but when turned to see Green's dark red adept gown they immediately bowed , and slowly walked out of the Goblin shop.
They have long since heard that there is a new adept backing this Goblin shop and it was there first time to personally see him. After having a 100 meters distance, they began to breathe again.
"That adept is so handsome! His body looked really good and robust, a head taller than Hans ... ..."
"Yes, ah yes ah, especially his dark red long hair, coupled with his handsome young face, simply handsome!"
Listening to his two female companions energetically complementing that person, the male apprentice could not help but complain loudly: "How dare you! That is an official adept! Did you not listen to those old apprentices repeatedly said, if you see the official adept do not look at him in the eye. Otherwise if you break this rule, they might even punish you! And adepts face can be faked to look young, he might be a hundred years old man! "
One of the female apprentices scorned him and said: "Hans, you cannot bitter adept Green, we have already inquired, and he is really less than 20 years old young adept, and comes from a backwater place "
"Yeah yeah, I've heard that!" Another female apprentice could not help but to add: "I also heard that with him there are two other adepts joining the family, especially that adept vampire Mary, to put it simply ... ...she is all of our female apprentice's idol. She looks not only very beautiful but also have strong combat power, I also heard that she defeated the century old adept Kiel! "
"What? she beat Kiel adept? How could this be... ... Kiel Adept was the family's most famous refining adept ... ... "
"Yes, you have you also seen that Evil Worm Adept? I heard that he looks terrible ... ... "
Three people all the way to discuss the gossip, and slowly drifting away.
