Abe The Wizard Chapter 741 | ATW 741
Translator:Exodus TalesEditor:Exodus Tales
There were still the same 12 elven councilors in the same ceremony hall as last time. They were divided into two groups of 6.
Grand Duke Edwina and Duke Albert sat in the center. Grand Duke Edwina looked even younger. The lotion and conditioner only had the power to make her look like she was 30 years old, but with the improved recipe, now she looked like she was 21.
Maybe Abel was thinking too much, but he couldn’t help but sense an especially strong gaze from the 4 female elven councilors.
Could they stop being so passionate?
Normal elves rarely interacted with Grand Duke Edwina, but not the councilors.
Ever since Abel, Lady Carrie, and the other ladies went to find the beauty grass for the Beauty Potion, Lady Carrie had slightly changed, but Grand Duke Edwina’s appearance was night and day.
If even Grand Duke Edwina could look this young at her age, any female elf in the known would go crazy.
Even some male elven councilors wanted a Beauty Potion, let alone the female ones.
Still, they all knew how hard it was to make a beauty potion. Its essential ingredient, the beauty grass, needed to be used as soon as it was plucked. Because of this, many male elven councilors had given up their hope of getting one.
“Master Bennett, due to your supply of Elven Perfume for Angstrom City and your outstanding alchemy performance, Angstrom City council will grant you the title of a baron, and a domain will be given to you!” Grand Duke Edwina announced.
“Thank you, Grand Duke!” Abel stepped up and bowed.
He did not say anything about loyalty. In the past, he might have mentioned it, but now he was a king. Even if he had transformed, he would not submit to anyone.
He wasn’t even loyal to the Kingdom of St Ellis, let alone the elves’ Grand Ducal Palace.
Of course, Grand Duke Edwina knew where Abel was coming from. At the end of the day, granting Abel a title was for the elves’ benefit anyway. Also, even though her relationship with Abel had eased up a little, it had not fully recovered.
Grand Duke Edwina knew this, and Abel did too. As Abel’s status increased, Grand Duke Edwina could no longer suppress him. They were equals.
Duke Abel watched by the side. He couldn’t help but remember when he first saw Abel and his words back then.
Back then, Grand Duke Edwina had said, “with his speed of progress, we might have to talk to him as equals in 20 years!”
Not even 2 years had passed, and Abel had become their equals. Even though Abel was still a beginner wizard, he was a grandmaster Blacksmith and had slain 3 or 4 elite wizards. It reflected his superiority in both status and power.
The 12 elven councilors scratched their heads. This title granting ceremony was passed to the council to discuss, but Duke Albert suggested it.
It was for a Master Alchemist by honor, so no one would stop him.
Although these 12 councilors seemed like the most powerful group of elves in Angstrom City, they were just representatives from a big noble family. Those nobles wouldn’t let them offend a Master Alchemist by honor.
The status of Baron was not high for a Master Alchemist by honor. They didn’t even know where his new domain was located as the council did not give it out. It was given out by Angstrom City from Grand Duke Edwina.
Master Bennett did not pledge his loyalty last time he was granted a title, and he still didn’t when he was granted a domain. It made no sense.
Granting a domain to a baron signified the potential of becoming a noble with a coat of arms, important in the Holy Continent. How could one not pledge his loyalty when given such a big reward.
More strange, Grand Duke Edwina did not react to his lack of fealty in Abel’s pledge. Duke Albert still had a big smile on his face, not a hint of dissatisfaction.
The reason why Duke Albert was smiling was that Steward Derek had brought home the news that Abel would give him a Beauty Potion for his birthday.
He had wanted the Beauty Potion for a long time, not only because he cares about his looks a lot, but his wife, Grand Duke Edwina, had got through so many changes she looked like a youthful girl. Standing beside her made him look even older.
Although the other elves did not say much, he couldn’t help but sense their shadowy gaze in the past year.
Still, he couldn’t just ask Abel for a Beauty Potion. He didn’t want to embarrass himself in front of Abel since he knew how valuable it was.
Therefore, he especially set a date for this ceremony a few days before his birthday and told Steward Derek to use the name of Lady Carrie to get his desire across.
He was so proud of this plan of his, he didn’t even notice at that moment Grand Duke Edwina and the 12 elven councilors were all looking at him.
“Master Bennett, Steward Derek will take you to your domain. If you need anything, just ask him!” Grand Duke Edwina said with a smile and pointed at Derek.
“I thank you, Grand Duke!” Abel bowed again.
The title granting ceremony was not complicated. Although it would be a huge event for every elf involved, it was just another daily task for the grand ducal palace.
After the ceremony, Abel left the hall. The only one who followed him was steward Derek, as the other elves continued to discuss other businesses.
“Steward Derek, is my domain far?’ Abel asked as they walked.
“Not at all, Master Bennett, but the location is a little special!” Derek replied.
A silvery horse carriage waited for them by the gate of the grand-ducal palace. The half-elven coachman, Kurt, quickly jumped and opened the door for Abel.
Abel entered the carriage and waved at steward Derek to come in.
“Master Bennett, this is my place!” Steward Derek did a bow and pointed at the edge of the carriage.
He knew Abel’s status very well. He was not only a Master Alchemist by honor, but he was also a friend of Lady Lorraine.
Also, he realized how respectful Grand Duke Edwina and Duke Albert was to him.
He didn’t know what happened to Abel these past 2 years since he left, but he knew something major had definitely happened to Abel’s status.
He didn’t know what since Abel was still a master alchemist by honor. But as a veteran in the Grand Ducal Palace, he could clearly see how different his 2 masters had acted.
Therefore, he also acted more respectfully, just like he was Abel’s steward.
“Head towards Orwell palace!” Steward Derek’s voice was not soft. Both Abel and Coachman Kurt heard what he had said.
“Steward Derek, can you tell me about Orwell palace? Is my domain around that area?” Abel never heard this name before, but he was not familiar with most places in the Double Moon Forest anyway.
“Your domain is the valley where the Orwell palace is located. It’s a beautiful place: one of the most beautiful palaces in the Double moon Forest!” Steward Derek said pridefully.
Abel didn’t expect to get a palace in his domain. It seemed like this palace belonged to the Grand Ducal Palace.
The silvery-white carriage set off from the grand ducal palace. Along the way, all the other carriages gave away to it. Just like that, the carriage had made its way outside the city at immense speed.
