“Your wish is simple . I can help you with that!” said Ye Lang, still busy with his food .
“I’m going to punch you if you dare suggest putting me back to sleep!” threatened Xuan Yuanbing, showing her fists . The stance didn’t last long as the Lady resumed to stare blankly at the empty square .
If it was possible, she would love to create a garden here . She’d be its sole designer and supervisor…
To be honest, with her title as the Sacred Lady, no one would even bat an eye if she wanted to build a skyscraper here .
“No, I meant I’ll help build it . I never said anything about putting you back to sleep!” defended Ye Lang, words unclear as his cheeks were once again full with food . The boy stared ahead blankly- no, he was deep in thought .
“??” the Lady was positively puzzled as Ye Lang began to strike a few poses . What on earth was he trying to do?
Ye Lang joined his palms with a loud clap before placing them on the ground . Intense rays of light began to shine through his fingers and soon dispersed uniformly everywhere .
“Ye Lang, which formation are you using?” Zhen Xiaoyan stopped in her tracks, observing the alchemy formation beneath her . She couldn’t put her mind around it due to its complexity .
The formation consisted of three elements- fire, earth and water . These elements were a part of the natural series and were rarely used among magicians .
A formation part of the natural series like this allows its user to control plants via magic . Its user could control vegetation growth, size and appearance . According to legends, one could even create a new plant species!
Unfortunately, only a few had the ability or attribute to use the natural series . The ability was generally limited to only the elf tribe and its descendants . Users of other tribes were not unheard of .
Albeit so, this power could be used by anyone if they wished, the endowment had nothing to do with its mastery .
The reason behind its rare usage was due to the fact that there were strict requirements for this series . All spells were dependent on pre-existing conditions, just like how plants need soil and water to live . Without these, any attempt would be futile except for the usage of its related healing magic . Its healing magic was applicable to all living things, entirely independent of pre-existing conditions .
Therefore, under normal circumstances, natural series magic was used for its support and healing properties . Lacking powerful attacks, people gradually move away from it, which subsequently made the practice obscure .
All tribes, humans and others alike, valued power for their survival . Tame magic as such was never fancied .
Surprisingly, natural series magic was rather prevalent in alchemy, it had several relevant formations though comparatively few . Some alchemists had even claimed that they’ve never used it in their life!
Ye Lang’s great interest in the natural series came from it being a component of his self-made formations . Because of that, the boy had read up a lot about it .
“It’s an alchemy formation!” Ye Lang shouted back an answer to Zhen Xiaoyan- which proved to be utterly useless as everyone already knew that . That was not an answer but everyone started to witness the materialization of his intention .
Lights extended towards all corners of the site bit by bit, joining together to form an outline of an incomplete formation framework . The expansion halted once the desired size was achieved, Ye Lang started to focus his efforts to complete the formation .
Everyone was terrified at the size of this massive formation, its radius was around two kilometres! That was insanely impressive as this was all powered by one sole person .
Though the formation was massive, it had only taken up a humbling one-third of the vacated site, realization soon dawned the people- the site was outrageously large!
There was no way anyone could miss such a big formation . It didn't take long before everyone started to gather around albeit forced to watch it from a distance . The formation had created a dome-shaped barrier around Ye Lang .
Naturally, the Light Riders noticed it first, having dispatched some riders to surround the venue .
Aside from their task to protect Ye Lang and Xuan Yuanbing, they were also there to prevent any interruption towards the formation . Funnily, the riders were unsure of Ye Lang's intention .
As seconds went by, more people joined the spectating crowd, particularly alchemists .
The alchemists around the region and from the Sacred Teachings were highly interested in Ye Lang, the boy was famous for his skill . As soon as they caught wind of the news, alchemists from the Sacred Teachings, Ye Academy and the Royal Institute of Education came rushing in . There was no time to lose!
After deeming the formation complete, Ye Lang stood up from his crouching stance . With a swift wave of his arms, he summoned a floating glowing circle .
Everyone watched on with curiosity .
“Let’s place a small river here,” he stroked a line within the circle, the line swiftly settled in . Soon, the ground in a corner within the formation began to change, sinking to form a long indent to create a riverbed .
Then, water started to materialize in thin air, quickly filling up the newly-formed hollow .
What? How was this possible?!
Everyone had somewhat understood the function of the circle but how Ye Lang did that remained a mystery .
This was something new . No one had seen anything like this!
“Do you understand now?” Ye Lang directed a sudden question at Xuan Yuanbing .
What could he possibly mean? Ye Lanyu, Zhen Xiaoyan and the seventh princess had no idea . Weirdly, Xuan Yuanbing was nodding in response!
“Yeah, I do!”
Xuan Yuanbing approached the boy, holding out her arms to touch the outer rim of the glowing circle . The Lady took a deep breath and closed her eyes…
“Have fun!” said Ye Lang as he left towards Zhen Xiaoyan, eager for more snacks .
“Alright!” replied Xuan Yuanbing . The Lady started placing deliberate strokes on different corners in the circle in such a fast pace it looked like she was dancing, anything she visualized was materialized correspondingly .
