The tower was built at the center of a plain. There didn’t seem to be anything different about this enormous wizard tower. It was tall and pierced through the clouds. However, fundamentally, it had gone through some serious changes. It was an element tower, and it was a wizard tower that only level-four element wizards were able to build and control. When wizard towers evolved, they could become an elemental power that was able to control the witchcraft boundary.
As for the tower, it was a level-six element tower. The master of this tower, Katherine, had reconstructed this tower at its base. She had maintained the outward appearance of this tower. However, it was no longer stone that formed the base of the tower, but some special materials that were akin to stones.
There were more than ten wizard towers surrounding the main tower, and the boundaries emanating from the point of the towers were connected, forming a gigantic unified boundary, like a phantom dome enveloping all the towers.
Inside the dome was a magical city. Lots of steam airships took off into the sky and traveled among the clouds. It was evening, and the lights in the city were still shining. There was always hustle and bustle, and the city stayed awake until the sunrise.
“Parasitic magical worms! Only thirty wizard coins!”
“Pure wind ravens! Fully-protected communications! Nobody will steal your messages! Safe and loyal! Only one hundred wizard coins!”
“Broken steam machine figure paper! Prices are negotiable!”
“Soul-purifying potions that amplify the effects of meditation. It can amplify effects by ten percent, and one bottle can last…”
This street still retained some of its ancient charms under the bright shining lights of the city. Wizards wearing capes and cloaks gathered here, as quite a few of the younger wizards had set up stores and shops on this street. A pair of twin female wizards were standing in front of their store, showing the functions of their alchemy potions, which attracted lots of interest and attention.
The wooden shop signs were inscribed with the names of the alchemy witchcraft shops, “Vivian’s Magically-Reinforced Pet Shop,””Derek’s Alchemy Design Shop,””Witchcraft Alchemy Playground,” and so on.
Lu Zhiyu walked through the wizard-packed street toward the tower at the center of the magical city. The enormous tower was the most eye-catching building in the entire region. If someone wanted to get into the tower, they needed to walk through the enormous white castle in front of the tower where there were the students lived and studied.
“Many buildings of the old have been preserved. Castles, shops, and several special wizard towers are still here,” Lu Zhiyu thought, looking at the familiar structures as he walked into the tower. The two wizards guarding the hall didn’t notice Lu Zhiyu, who walked right in and started up the stairs to the top of the tower.
At the same time, Katherine was up in the main control room at the very top of the tower, playing with her observation equipment. The telescope in the observation tower extended out through the window and pointed right at the starry sky and dimensional wall outside.
“This time, we can see the stars very clearly using this telescope, and we can even see the reflection of the astral world outside our world using the dimensional wall!”
“What do you think we will find this time, Pyros? Will we be able to see another world? Will we see Maria’s World?”
Katherine was carefully operating the astral telescope which looked like a six-meter barbette. She was closely monitoring the data and the turntable on the astral telescope. She had dedicated her whole life to understanding the mysteries of this world, and even so, she still couldn’t figure out how this world really worked or what it was really made of.
They weren’t even able to enter the dimensional wall to explore. The closest spot where the dimensional wall was closest to the ground was several hundred kilometers up, which was too high for ordinary wizards to fly. The higher a place was, the more frequently elemental storms and space vibrations occurred.
Even if they were able to enter the dimensional wall, there were no directions in the dimensional wall, and there were countless space wrinkles, which meant you would never be able to know where you would find yourself next. It was like an enormous maze, and no living being who entered this maze would be able to make it out.
Wizards started to use indirect methods to observe and study the composition of this world. The newest way was to observe the stars and the strange scenes in the dimensional wall using the special astral telescopes they had invented. As for what they observed, there were the special star-soul lives in the dimensional wall. Thus, the professions of astrologists and summoners were created to study them.
A sphinx from the newest generation of sphinxes was stationed at the door of the highest floor of the tower. Each new generation of the sphinx was called “Pyros.” As Katherine worked, Pyros yawned lazily. She relaxed and overlapped its claws, and wasn’t concerned with being too attentive to Katherine right now.
“Although this is only a second-generation astral telescope, it’s still impossible to observe the scenes or the reflections of the astral world. The most you can see are the stars and some special scenes hidden deeper in the dimensional wall. If we want to…” Before Pyros could finish talking, she suddenly raised her head and looked around as if she had sensed something special. At the same time, Katherine finally fixed her new astral telescope.
“Okay, perhaps we can find more star souls this time. Each star soul had different abilities and stands for different things. Every time when we find a special star soul, we can channel its power to study different things. This time…”
“Let me see it!” Pyros summoned the astral telescope Katherine had just finished fixing, and it swooped towards her. It looked toward the dimensional wall from the same angle Katherine had been observing from.
Lu Zhiyu could see a star giving out light in the deep area of the dimensional wall. The star souls were breathing together with this world, and they were getting more powerful as they ran the operations of this world and as the world grew stronger. It was as if there was actually a huge and special star hanging in the sky, carrying out its duties and abilities.
“How magnificent!” Lu Zhiyu couldn’t help but exclaim. The race of star souls had already matured enough to take on their responsibilities. Katherine, standing beside him, looked at Lu Zhiyu’s dark hair. She looked at his face, listened to his familiar voice, and she could even smell his special scent.
Seeing Lu Zhiyu let his hands go and turn around to look at her, Katherine smiled with him, “That’s right, the world is the most beautiful thing in the eyes of wizards.”
Lu Zhiyu looked down through the windows of the tower and saw the gigantic City of Wizards. He also observed the area that was covered by the entire Kingdom of Wizards and its civilization.
“Is this what the Kingdom of Wizards is in the eyes of you, Bohr, Akkad, and all the other first-generation wizards?” he asked.
“It’s fantastic. I love it, and I believe that they’ll love it too!”
Lu Zhiyu curved his lips, and there was a trace of a smile on his tranquil face. He looked Katherine in the eyes and said, “Thanks, Katherine!”
Katherine’s eyes gleamed bright, and the smile on her beautiful face looked like a colorful flower blossoming. The more she smiled, the less she could control herself. She held her face with both of her hands, and it seemed that she was truly happy. Being affirmed by Lu Zhiyu was just as good to her as being affirmed by other wizards of the first generation.
Lu Zhiyu and Katherine kept looking at each other. They were able to communicate with each other only through eye contact. They were both smiling with happiness.
Lu Zhiyu walked down the stairs of the observation tower and Katherine followed him. Looking at the gigantic telescope, Lu Zhiyu suddenly asked, “Since this world is so beautiful, are you interested in spending more time exploring and finding its secrets, Katherine?”
Katherine was dazed. She let go of her hands, looked at Lu Zhiyu, and smiled. She put her hands on her back like she did when she was being taught by Lu Zhiyu back in the tower in the Dark Forest.
“What should I do?”
Lu Zhiyu looked around and set a blackboard down on the ground. He then stood on the stairs and tidied up his long robe.
“Are you interested in taking one more lecture from me?” he asked.
Katherine watched Lu Zhiyu’s movements in silence. They were his usual movements, yet they triggered lots of memories. She remembered how Lu Zhiyu used to be, and how many people used to be. Katherine couldn’t even remember the names of some of them, yet she could still remember their faces, which were familiar and kind.
“Of course… Of course… I… Very…”
Katherine couldn’t help but smile and covered her mouth with her hands, and she couldn’t help tearing up, either. She couldn’t even keep her voice smooth anymore. It was supposed to be a pleasant and sweet moment, all of a sudden it was mixed with sorrow.
She set a chair in the center of the room, even though there were lots of other chairs around her. All of a sudden, several rows of empty chairs appeared beside her. Katherine was now sitting at the center of the front row where she always wanted to sit.
Lu Zhiyu tapped the blackboard, and he looked around at all the people sitting down there as if he were a teacher checking whether or not all of his students were present. Lu Zhiyu stood straight and said, “Now that everyone’s here, I’ll begin my lesson. Today, we’re going to talk about how to reach level seven and become a mythical wizard, and a couple of the crucial steps.”
