Versatile Mage - Chapter 3050
3050 Evil Lake
After the communication was disconnected, the Holy Shadow Clark heaved a long sigh of relief.
A Holy Shadow who failed to contribute to the organization would be at risk of being terminated. Even the members themselves had no idea how they would be terminated.
Anyhow, Clark could not let himself be put under the “name list of termination”. He had to get rid of the heretics wandering around as soon as possible.
Fortunately, he obtained a very important clue. With the help of this, he could strike off one of the crucial tasks in his to-do list.
He did not come to the building to enjoy tasty food. He was there to wait for an informant who could provide him with important information.
It was about dusk when a woman appeared before the dining table.
Clark sized the woman up. Her skin was pale, and she exuded a strange aura of coldness. She was wrapped in layers of clothing despite being inside a warm building.
“Are you Mu Tingying from the Mu family?” asked Clark.
“Yes, sir.” Mu Tingying stood there. She hesitated for some time. She dared not to sit down.
She was aware that the man before her came from the Holy City and worked for the angels. Mu Tingying seldom encountered people of his level, so she was nervous and uneasy.
“Then, what is the important information you have for me? Speaking of which, you seem to be cold. I’ve seen someone with similar symptoms, but he’s more serious than you,” said the Holy Shadow Clark as he fixed his gaze on Mu Tingying.
The cold was a type of erosive power that was similar to a cold poison. Even Healing Element Magic could not heal it. Once the people were infected by the cold, it was hard for them to maintain a normal body temperature. Regardless of how hot the place was, they always felt cold and painful.
The Holy Shadow mentioned another person had been infected by the same cold as Mu Tingying. That person was Mu Rong from the Forbidden Curse Association. In fact, Clark watched Mu Rong die in torment because of the cold.
Mu Ningxue had been the one to unleash the cold!
When the Holy Shadow Clark noticed the similar symptoms on Mu Tingying, he could not help but smile. It was just as well that he had found the right person.
“She’s still alive,” said Mu Tingying with great conviction.
“This is indeed puzzling. I supposed she had escaped the Extreme South Land long ago and hid somewhere where we couldn’t trace her. The Holy Shadow possesses special tracing ability. We have no idea about her whereabouts or if she’s still alive. How can you be sure?” asked the Holy Shadow Clark.
“We used to be a team.” It was only then that Mu Tingying sat down. It was clear to see that she was afraid of staying in the cold. She instinctively covered the hot glass of water with her hands.
“A team?” Clark felt puzzled.
“We’re from the National Institute team. Each of us has a badge. The badge is unique. It will inform us of other members through its glow. It can tell us whether they are still alive or dead, their position, and the distance from them,” whispered Mu Tingying.
Clark quirked one of his eyebrows. Her words piqued his interest.
Mu Tingying took out a badge from her pocket. She surveyed her surroundings once before passing it to Clark. She said, “She’s still alive. You can use the National Institute Commemorative Badge to find Mu Ningxue. If I’m not mistaken, she still has the badge with her.”
Clark took the badge. His eyes lit up upon feeling the magic aura hidden within the badge.
It was an associated magic vessel. The person in possession of the badge could sense the other party’s whereabouts. If Mu Ningxue had not destroyed her badge, Clark was confident that he could locate her using the associated magic vessel.
This was amazing! Locating Mu Ningxue was as simple as that!
Why had he never thought of finding clues from her former friends? This would have saved him a lot of effort!
Mu Ningxue had killed Mu Rong. If Clark were able to arrest her, he could make up for his past mistake.
‘Hahaha! This badge is truly the key to locating Mu Ningxue,’ thought Clark. Even she would not expect her former friend to betray her!
“How can I repay you, then?” asked The Holy Shadow Clark as he looked at Mu Tingying.
“Make her die a painful death. That will be the best repayment of all.” Mu Tingying’s pale face was tinged with malice.
Mu Ningxue had nailed Mu Tingying to the mountain wall with her arrow. Mu Tingying would never forget the humiliation she had suffered.
At that moment, everyone stared at Mu Tingying, but she could not break free of it. She looked like a wild dog to be slaughtered before the public. She still remembered the incident. It felt like it had happened only yesterday. As a result, she could not live in dignity in Mu Pang Mountain.
Furthermore, the pain was excruciating. As a result of this magic, she felt as cold as ice every midnight. She was cold no matter what the temperature was in the fireplace.
“This is a pretty good request.” The Holy Shadow Clark laughed.
Mu Tingying harbored a deep hatred for Mu Ningxue. Mu Tingying’s sickly but vicious appearance revealed that she had suffered greatly at the hands of Mu Ningxue.
Fortunately, Clark had met someone like her who did him a great favor.
“I’ve made some changes. You can sense her presence even if you’re far away from her,” said Mu Tingying.
“That’s very thoughtful of you,” said Clark.
At Tinoaia, Mu Ningxue set off as soon as it was dawn.
After she left Portugal, she entered the European continent. She crossed the lengthy mountain range. A large expanse of forest appeared before her.
The leaves in the forest were silver-gray. The silver clouds in the sky appeared to be hanging upside down. The scenery was unique and breathtaking.
When she flew to the border of the forest, she saw many towering silver-gray mountains. Mu Ningxue flew past them and saw a large silver-blue lake. Her mood lifted upon being greeted by such a beautiful sight.
There were several wooden cottages on the shore of the silver-blue lake. It looked like a small fairyland from afar. Several white boats were stationed on the lake. There were several anglers. They sat motionlessly on the white boat, waiting for the fishes to be hooked.
Mu Ningxue was particularly interested in the location of the silver-gray forest and the silver-blue lake. She promised herself that she would spend more time in such a unique and peaceful setting in the future.
The lake was enormous. Mu Ningxue flew over a number of mountains. The lake reached both sides of the forest, forming a silver-blue stream. The stream flowed in the opposite direction.
Mu Ningxue landed on the lake’s narrowest point. She planned to correct the direction of the flight and also take a rest.
Right after she landed, the lake shook violently.
The lake water seemed to have been granted with a life force. It left the lake and stood up.
Mu Ningxue sensed a powerful magic aura, so she quickly ran to the forest and kept herself hidden. The moment she left, the lake water in the middle of the forest transformed into a Lake Water Demonic Dragon and ruthlessly lunged at Mu Ningxue!
