Wizard System: Dissecting a Mutated Monster From the Start - Chapter 40 - Edward's Silent Taunt!
When they separated, the three alchemists gave Edward a way to contact them.
It was obvious that these three were very friendly to Edward.
“I hope that with your outstanding talent and hard work, you can bring the brilliance of alchemy to its peak again!”
After hearing Feodor’s earnest words, Edward left the Ancient Ones’ camp.
Edward was walking along a small road in the residential area, thinking about where he should place his badge. After some consideration, he realized that he could not place it on his neck. There was already a Two-Winged Beauty Snake there, and if he were to print another one, there might be a fight.
Finally, he imprinted the badge on the back of his hand, similar to Feodor.
A dim light flashed, and the alchemist badge tattoo appeared on his skin.
[System prompt: There is a message left by Feodor in the badge. Do you want to check it?]
Edward looked at the badge that was glowing red in surprise and felt an indescribable sense of violation.
This thing could be used as a phone?
“Check the news!”
[Feodor: By the time you see this message, you have probably used the badge skillfully. Haha, here’s my contact information with the other two alchemists. If you have any questions, you can ask us. Of course, we would also love to learn some deeper and more profound alchemy knowledge!]
Edward sent a message to Feodor after reading this.
“Dear Mr. Feodor, if I want to obtain some high-level potion formulas, what kind of items do I need to pay?”
The moment the message was sent, the other party quickly replied, “Mr. Edward, with your current strength, it’s too difficult for you to make a high-grade equivalent exchange. I suggest you make a deal with those wizards first. They have good items on hand.”
After chatting for a while, Edward returned to the luxurious villa.
Since he was certified by The Ancient One, the way to enter Ouroboros was obtained as well.
While Edward was thinking about what to do next, he did not know that someone was plotting against him.
It was Baal!
Baal also obtained a residence permit, but he did not choose to rent a room. Instead, he spent the night outside.
He was not as wealthy as Edward.
Baal was lying in a park chair, looking grim.
He saw Edward heading towards the residential area!
Edward being able to live inside was something he did not expect, which was not in line with his plan.
How could this damned traveler be so rich?!
100 Elemental Crystals a day!
Where did he get his money from?!
“I’m only missing the scroll in his hand. It records the lifelong pursuit of a Rank 4 Necromancer. I must get it!” Baal thought of something and smirked.
One day, he would not be able to pay for his room. When that happened, he would find Edward on the street at night and end him!
As for tonight?
When he met Edward tonight, he only saw his back as he entered the residential area.
Also, the residential area was protected by puppets!
As long as he could kill Edward without anyone knowing and dump his corpse in the wilderness, the city’s rules would have no effect on him, and he would be able to collect all the scrolls!
Edward had really joined the massive Ouroboros organization!
Baal burst out laughing at his own thoughts.
Edward, a Rank 1 Wizard?
Even as a Rank 2, Baal could not enter Ouroboros, so how could that country bumpkin succeed?
He must really be dreaming!
“He’s been following me?” Edward was amused as he stood on the balcony and looked at Baal who was about to sleep.
Ever since Baal approached him, he had been marked by the system. No matter where he went, it would be shown.
The system sounded the alarm when Baal sent malicious intent towards Edward.
“However… This also means that the human skin scroll has a huge secret. It just so happens that the scroll is delivered right to my doorstep. It would be a waste not to take it!”
Edward’s smile turned into a sneer as he stared coldly at Baal.
He hated people plotting behind his back!
The system had not finished analyzing the scroll yet, but with the remaining scrolls on Baal, it would probably take a day to analyze it.
It would be strange if he did not want to take it.
Time passed slowly, and in the blink of an eye, it was already the second day!
Edward put on his white robe, tidied his hair, and headed to the second level’s teleportation formation.
Along the way, he could clearly feel the person following him.
The corners of his mouth curled up into a smile as he walked towards the exit of the second level expressionlessly.
‘Didn’t he want to kill me? Then let’s create an opportunity for him!’
Baal watched as Edward disappeared into the white light with a pained expression after paying the Elemental Crystal, his eyes filled with killing intent and greed.
After paying one Elemental Crystal, Baal chased after Edward expressionlessly with a strange smile on his face.
They left one after another, less than three minutes apart.
Baal looked around at the towering forest. There was no sign of anyone.
He activated his detection spell technique, and his expression remained unchanged as he began his hunt.
A moment later, he sensed something.
Magic power gathered in his hand, and a scorching fireball was extracted from the fire elements and fired at the figure who was moving slowly ahead.
Baal then took out a dagger from his waist and cast a Poison Blade Spell before charging towards the burning area!
His calculations this time were perfect. He moved when the white light from the explosion of the fireball was still bright. After he rushed in, the fire elements were blown away by the wind.
Even a lion had to use all its strength to hunt a rabbit!
Just as the dagger was about to enter the smoke, Edward jumped out. Under the protection of the wind element, his body was not hurt at all, and even his clothes and hair were not messed up!
“I really didn’t expect this, really!” Under Baal’s shocked gaze, Edward chuckled and shook his head.
“Your brain is just as trash as you. It doesn’t match your strength at all!”
“It was just a small scheme, but I managed to lure you out!”
As he spoke, Edward stretched out his hand with the Ancient Ones’ tattoo and pointed it at him.
A large amount of spiritual power was rapidly gathering fire elements in his palm!
At this moment, Baal saw the tattoo on the back of Edward’s hand and his pupils shrank. He suddenly realized that he had offended someone he could not mess with!
Under his ashen gaze, Edward took out a handful of Elemental Crystals and threw them into his palm. The fire elements suddenly strengthened.
At this moment, silence was even more scary than making a sound!
