They moved alongside a road of stone once they exited Angstrom City. After 20 miles, they saw a high mountain in their way. However, the road did not end. There was a cave with a stone made bridge connecting the outside of the mountain to the inside.
Abel deeply realized the importance of the place. Just this road reflected its value.
Building a road in the Double Moon Forest was not as simple as laying down rocks, especially a 5 meters wide road that could fit a carriage on each side.
There were large amounts of lively plants in the Double moon Forest. During their growing process, they would most likely tip over the rocks or grow from the cracks.
In order to build a road that could last for generations, they needed to heat up the soil until no more plants could grow before laying down the rocks.
It was a big procedure and would take a lot of resources. It might be more expensive than the domain itself.
“Master Bennett, this is Orwell Valley, which is where the Orwell palace got its name from!” Steward Dereck proudly pointed forward.
“Is this a man-made road?” Abel gazed at the road in the cave, dividing this tall mountain into two.
‘It was a gift of the Double Moon goddess, granted to the Double Moon Forest!” Said Steward Derek passionately.
Abel watched as the Carriage passed on the stone bridge. Under the bridge, there was a clear stream with fishes swimming in and out.
At the same time, Abel also realized the importance of this stone bridge. It was the only entrance.
The stone bridge was 20 meters long. After the bridge was ended, they continued to move along the stone road in the cave. Each side was a steep cliff.
“There is a magic circle here!” Abel suddenly sensed an energy wave. Although it was very faint, it did not escape Abel’s senses.
“Master Bennett, your power of the will is powerful. There is a protection circle here, but it is not open right now!” Steward Derek said admiringly.
The carriage continued for a few hundred meters in the cave. Soon, the lights began to rise, and the carriage was out of the cave. A valley emerged in front of them. The place was filled with neatly lined up trees, and it seemed like men planted them.
Those trees were lined up perfectly, no matter if you looked at them horizontally or vertically. You could see how much effort was put into planting them alone.
Abel suddenly felt a change in temperature. It was supposed to be winter, but this place felt warm, like spring.
The carriage kept moving forward for another 20 miles, and Abel saw a white palace castle leaning against a mountain.
If Abel was not mistaken, this was fully built with white Hao jade. Hao jade was a special stone of the Double Moon forest. Its surface looked just like a normal jade. It was a top-quality material for construction.
Normally, nobles would only use them on their tiles or interior walls. It was the first time Abel saw a building made entirely out of it.
This white castle in front of them was called a “palace” castle because ithad the construction of a castle but the style of a palace.
It had the protection of a castle but the luxury of a palace.
“Master Bennett, this is Orwell Palace, one of the most beautiful palaces in Double Moon Forest!” Every time Steward Derek saw this palace, he felt as though he touched paradise.
“I love it here!” Abel said with a smile. He was biased towards the color.
He walked towards Orwell palace. There was a protection river separating the palace from the roads in the front.
It was well guarded–even its defense was like a military base.
Steward Derek took out an identity card and held it up. Under the reflection of the sunlight, that wooden identity card looked almost like a piece of metal.
Soon, a suspension bridge slowly began to lower from the palace, forming a passage.
The carriage continued on to the suspension bridge. The palace’s wooden gate swung open. 2 rows of elven warriors dressed in black armor stood on each side, and one elven warrior with a golden badge on his chest also in black armor was standing in the middle.
“Loka, the Grand Ducal Palace commands that from this day, you will be responsible for protecting Master Bennett. Orwell valley is now Master Bennett’s domain!” Steward Derek jumped off the carriage and lowered his voice as he walked towards an elven warrior named Loka.
Abel also jumped down from the carriage and looked at the warriors in black armor in front of him.
There was a familiar scent on this elven warrior. He was a warrior of death, a true warrior of death. The Orwell Palace was a base for the grand-ducal palace to cultivate warriors of death.
All the warriors at least had the rank of an intermediate knight. Most of them had the rank of an elite knight. The one named Loka had the rank of a commander.
“Master Bennett, I, Loka, and the 30 elven warriors will follow and die for you!” Loka kneeled down and yelled. The 2 rows of warriors in black armor by each side also knelt on one knee and yelled, “die for you!”
Loka was not like an elf but like a killing machine. His murderous aura was so thick that it was almost palpable, and those 30 elven warriors in black armor were no different.
“I accept your honor!” Abel lowered his voice and signified them to get up.
“Loka, bring the others back first. There is something I want to talk to Derek about. Come find me later!” Abel commanded.
He had dealt with countless warriors of death. He knew he just needed to command them, no explanation needed. But still, Abel didn’t want to treat Loka as a warrior of death.
“Yes, master!” Loka said loudly. He turned and held up a hand sign. Afterward, the warriors quickly vanished.
Seeing Loka disappeared, Abel turned back to Derek. “Steward Derek, is there anything the Grand Ducal palace wants me to know?”
“Master Bennett, Orwell Valley is a domain granted to you by the Grand Ducal Palace. It had always been an important palace for the Grand Ducal Palace to pass through winter. It is also an important fortress!” Steward,z Derek explained.
“The Orwell Valley is 20 miles deep, 60 miles wide. It is flat surrounded by tall mountains. There is only one entrance, which is the one we just came from. We have been planting thorns on the top of those mountains for many years. It is basically impossible to climb through. This is a fortress protected by nature.
There are countless hot springs below the ground. Due to the barrier created by the surrounding mountains, the temperature is very suitable for fruit trees to grow. That’s why the grand-ducal palace had turned Orwell Valley into a fortress. The fruits in every fruit tree here are essential to the elves. After countless years of operation, this place was fully planted.
There are mainly 3 types of fruit trees. One is the sweet fruit tree, the second is the monthly pear tree, and the third is the greed jujube tree. These 3 types of fruit are essential to an elve’s diet. We have enough of them to support 1000 elves!’ Steward Derek explained.
Abel realized why Grand Duke Edwina had granted him this domain. This place was beautiful, but the most valuable thing about this place was the fruit trees.
The temperature in this place was perfect for fruit trees, so maybe Grand Duke Edwina thought it might be the perfect place for him to test out his Harvesting potion, which was the true intention behind this domain granting.
“Master Bennett, all the elven warriors here are warriors of death. They will do anything on your command. There are also 20 elves responsible for taking care of these fruit trees living here. They are all your citizens. The servants in the palace will also serve you.” Steward Derek continued.
“I’m very happy with this place. I will thank Duke Albert on his birthday!” Abel was very satisfied. This place was great for a vacation.
Abel had received theinvitation letter from Duke Albert for his birthday. It was in 3 days. He would be on his way after everything was settled.
