Abe The Wizard Chapter 747 | ATW 747
“Master Bennett, long time no see!’ Master Mara walked towards Abel and bowed. She looked a lot younger.
“Master Mara, long time no see!” Abel bowed back.
“Do you have any new work lately?” Master Mara looked at Abel with optimism.
“I’ve been busy with some other things lately, so I didn’t make anything new. But I did break through the intermediate alchemy pattern. There are some questions I want to ask you!” Abel replied with a smile.
He skimmed through large amounts of documents. It said that transforming an intermediate alchemy pattern into an elite one was very difficult. Master Mara was very experienced, so she was the perfect candidate to answer.
“Congratulations, you can ask me anything!” Master Mara said with admiration.
She almost forgot Abel was just an intermediate alchemist since he was already recognized as a master alchemist by honor. The skills Abel had shown almost made her feel insecure.
Soon Abel would become an elite alchemist. By that point, his skills would increase once again.
Afterward, Abel and Master Mara began casually chatting. Although many noble elves wanted to talk to the 2 master alchemists as well, none of them did since they didn’t want to interrupt.
As time passed, more and more elves arrived at the hall. The sky was slowly getting dark, and each elf had sat down on their designated seat under the guidance of the servants.
Abel’s seat was organized on the left side, not far from the master seat. It was one of the most prestigious out of the bunch.
“The prestigious Grand Duke Edwina majesty and the prestigious Duke Albert Is here!” Steward Derek appeared in the hall and yelled.
Afterward, Grand Duke Edwina and Duke Albert stepped into the hall. Suddenly, everything went quiet.
There were 2 reasons for this. One was the respect and honor for Grand Duke Edwina and Duke Albert, and the other was for Duke Albert’s appearance.
Duke Albert’s face was so youthful and energized, everyone on the spot thought he was a youngster.
It was especially so for the elves the same age as Duke Albert. In their eyes, Duke Albert had returned to his glorious prime time back in the days.
Even though Grand Duke Edwina’s appearance had gotten even younger, it did not bring anywhere as much shock value to the elves as Duke Albert. Grand Duke Edwina was a female. She would normally put on makeup before attending a party. It made sense for her to look more youthful.
She had gotten even younger due to the Beauty Potion, but this had only shocked a few elves that were closed to her.
Duke Albert was different. He was a male elf, a worn-out middle-aged male elf. He had somehow returned to his prime time. What did that mean?
All elves were born with a strong desire for beauty. This was the case, no matter female or male.
Abel suddenly felt like he had done something stupid. At that moment, all the elves’ attention turned from Duke Albert on to him.
What does Duke Albert’s return to youth signify? Of course, it had to do with Abel.
Any elf with a brain could guess it. A Master Alchemist by honor known for creating miracles had just returned from his trip, and a thing like this had happened.
Even Master Mara began to doubt Abel. Abel just said he didn’t have any new work. How come Duke Albert had shown up like this in his party?
“Today, on Duke Albert’s birthday, Grand Duke Edwina and I welcome all of you for attending. I didn’t mean to celebrate this little birthday, but Master Bennett had returned just in time, so I want to use this chance to give him a warm welcome as well. Everyone, lift up your glass!” The star of the party, Duke Albert lifted up his crystal glass and said loudly.
Duke Albert was especially energetic at the party. He was shocked by his audiences’ eyes. He finally felt he had matched with his wife, Grand Duke Edwina. A young couple, just like back in the days.
“Welcome, Master Bennett. I love your present!” Duke Albert lifted up his crystal glass even higher with excitement.
Grand Duke Edwina noticed Abel’s face was not looking good all of a sudden. She couldn’t help but let out a gentle laugh. She didn’t interrupt Duke Albert, nor did she warn Duke Albert. Duke Albert was too happy today.
“Happy birthday to the prestigious Duke Albert, Welcome, Master Abel!’ All the elves in the hall lifted up their crystal glass and yelled.
Abel lifted his glass as well with a headache. It was best for him to never come back to Angstrom City after tonight. This news would soon spread throughout the city, and he didn’t want to imagine what those crazy elves could do.
He put the crystal glass against his lips and gently twisted. The wine poured out and soaked his suit.
“I’m so sorry. This is such an embarrassment. How could I make my clothes dirty? Steward Derek, take me to clean up!” Abel said dramatically, pointing at the wine on his suit as he waved at Steward Derek.
Steward Derek quickly walked in front of Abel and bowed, “Master Bennett, please follow me. I will prepare a new suit for you!’
“Everyone, please excuse me!” Abel bowed and said. He then followed Derek out of the hall.
When he finally left, he let out a big breath of relief. The yearning gaze of those elves was too scary. Duke Albert was also too disgraceful. He sold him out.
“Master Bennett, please come this way!” Steward Derek said, pointing at a change room.
“Steward Derek, where is the nearest teleportation circle?” Abel disrupted.
“Through this corridor!” Steward Derek was confused, but he still pointed the direction for Abel.
“Derek, I’ve drunk too much. I don’t feel very well. Please help me tell Grand Duke Edwina and Duke Albert I will go first!” Abel finished his words and quickly walked towards the teleportation.
Steward Derek was stunned. Did he drink too much? He just drank one glass of wine, and most of it was poured on his clothes.
However, he didn’t stop Abel. He knew how prestigious Abel was, and Abel’s accommodation in the Grand Ducal Palace was still preserved.
However, Abel did not stay. He directly teleported back to Orwell Palace from the Grand Ducal Palace.
Back in the dining hall, many elves no longer had the appetite to eat. They gaze at that empty seat from time to time, thinking about how they could buy some beauty potion off Abel.
Of course, only a small amount of prestigious elves had this idea. Most of them knew that a beauty potion could not be mass-produced.
Especially Master Mara. She knew the formula for beauty potions. With the beauty grass’s nature, this magical potion could only be successfully made when a beauty grass was freshly plucked.
That wasn’t mentioning the difficulty of making them. Making a highly complicated potion out in the wild was already a daunting task. Its chance of failure was far greater than making one in the lab.
It was at that moment, Steward Derek returned, and he whispered something to Duke Albert. Afterward, a strange look emerged on Duke Albert’s face as he whispered something to Grand Duke Edwina.
“Everyone, Master Bennett is not feeling well, so he left early. He wanted me to let you all know that he was very sorry!”Grand Duke Edwina lowered her voice.
She did not blame Abel. It made sense that Abel was worried. With a law-defying beauty potion like that, she should already be thankful that Duke Albert and herself could even get one from Abel.
