With tears in his eyes, Hegel tried to retain Fang Linyan bitterly,
“Sir, even if you have an opinion towards our service, you can’t be angry and gamble with your own safety!”
Fang Linyan was stunned,
At this time, another goblin wearing a magic robe trotted over.
Seeing him, Hegel immediately breathed a sigh of relief and loudly said,
“This is Mr. Vincent Fran, Gringotts’ second grand sorcerer. He has deep attainment toward black magic protection spells.”
Fang Linyan glanced at the goblin,
“Mr. Grand Sorcere, I remember that you were among the guards just now. You stood on tiptoes and held your wand really high! The wand almost poked my nostrils.”
Mr. Vincent had a very cheeky face that was outstanding, even among goblins,
“Dear sir, I have a twin brother who looks exactly like me. Please don’t put the things he did on me — Won’t you consider getting yourself rid of the blood leech magic under your shoe? Even if this magic was attached to you, there would be big trouble if someone from the Ministry of Magic caught you. “
Fang Linyan, who was a little disapproving at first, was taken aback!
He originally thought that the incomplete black magic book he was carrying was the one causing trouble, but if this goblin hadn’t explained the reason to him, he wouldn’t have known that someone had attached tracking black magic under his shoe.
Therefore, Fang Linyan instantly became serious,
“Is there a quiet place?”
Vincent, who was good at capturing business opportunities smiled suddenly (for the sake of the hundred gold shining cuties),
“Of course, please come with me.”
Soon, Fang Linyan sat in the guest room beside the hall. He tactfully declined a cup of honey black tea (that had fine prints with 5 Galleons per cup written on the side) and asked Hegel to replace it with a free cup of lemonade, then he started chatting with Vincent.
However, Vincent, this old fox, refused to disclose any information without paying. He simply told Fang Linyan that he had to pay Gringotts 60 Galleons (which was unclear whether this was a coincidence as that was half of the total Galleons Fang Linyan had on him). Moreover, he convinced Fang Linyan to deposit the rest of it into Gringotts, then he would help Fang Linyan get rid of all his troubles!
However, Fang Linyan didn’t think that way…. He wasn’t thinking about how to get rid of the trouble under the soles of his shoes. Instead, his idea was much bolder!
It was to get rid of the troublemaker!!
So Fang Linyan shelled out 5 Galleons for “private consultation fees” and stated firmly that if Vincent didn’t agree, he would leave immediately. Upon this tactic, Mr. Vincent chose to compromise. He took out a handkerchief and carefully wiped the Galleons before accepting them.
Next, the Goblin Grand Sorcerer showed his professionalism and gave a detailed explanation to Fang Linyan.
After learning enough information, Fang Linyan tested something else out. He turned his back toward Vincent and put the shoe tainted by black magic into his private storage space. Once he confirmed that Vincent could no longer detect the black magic on it, he nodded with satisfaction, then he left Gringotts to Diagon Alley and went on a shopping spree…
An hour later,
On the streets of London, a man in a black robe and a hood walked through the bustling streets.
At this time, it was the peak time for transportation in London. There were various means of transportation on the road, vans, two-wheeled carriages, covered chaises, donkeys of various colors, horses, and ponies to provide power for them. The road was covered in a thick, suffocating band of dust.
It was suffocatingly hot with thick dust everywhere. There was a stench coming from the filthy residences. The hot and dry sun shining on low attic windows, making the rooms feel uncomfortable as if being in an oven. The small children were crawling on the ground covered in wood shavings, crumbs, potato peels and vegetable leaves while the older children were using the street corners as toilets.
Walking on such a street was undoubtedly a test of human endurance.
After the man had walked about a hundred meters, he couldn’t help walking into a secluded alley on the side.
This man’s build was similar to Fang Linyan. His name was Schelt. He had limited talent and was somewhat lazy. So he was considered the lower class who could only rely on short-term jobs to survive in the magical world.
In fact, the clumsy magic skills that he mastered, such as bending a pin with his mind, didn’t allow him to live a good life even in the muggle world — not to mention that this behavior was punishable by the Ministry of Magic if they were to find out about it!
So when Fang Linyan found Schelt and asked him to wear a black robe that concealed his identity and a pair of normal shoes to walk through the streets of London for 30 Galleons, Schelt agreed immediately.
Although Fang Linyan was only willing to pay 10 Galleons in advance,
And although Schelt knew that the other party must have a purpose for him to do so.
But Schelt knew very well that he had no other choice, because he really needed the reward for this task. More importantly, he knew that Fang Linyan could easily find another replacement on the streets of Diagon Alley. Not to mention 10 Galleons, many were willing to do this for half a galleon.
Suddenly, Schelt felt that something was amiss because he realized that his surroundings quieted down. The noise around him disappeared, and another person appeared in front of him.
The person was also wearing a black robe, but an indescribable evilness and violent was radiating from him.
Then the man raised his head, revealing an ugly scar on his face. A cruel smile appeared on his face,
“I’ve finally caught you, little mouse! It almost used up all of the blood leech’s magic, and the signals were intermittent… You escaped really quickly! Did you think I can’t do anything to you just because we’re in the muggle world? Hehe, a simple masking spell can shroud the muggles’ eyes. You still fell into the hands of Lord Fernand today!”
This person was none other than Fernand who had a conflict with Fang Linyan in Borgin and Burkes’ Magic Shop. After he practiced black magic, his personality began to become withdrawn and distorted. In addition, Fang Linyan had an aura that made him uncomfortable, so he used blood leech to track him down!
Immediately afterward, Fernand raised the wand in his hand, and the tip flashed,
This was a typical black magic spell. It was equivalent to one of the three kinds of unforgivable spells: the predecessor of the torture spell.
To put it simply, the spell would immediately take effect on the target, making a will judgment of the target, then the will judgment would determine the final effect of the spell.
However, under normal circumstances, unless this person had special training, such as the Aurors (Policemen) that the Ministry of Magic used to enforce their laws, this spell would work pretty well.
Sure enough, Schelt immediately fell to the ground and groaned in pain.
Seeing this scene, Fernand was not surprised at all. He strode forward with a sneer on the corner of his lips.
It was just as he stood in front of Schelt, he was stunned. This was because while Schelt was rolling in pain, the hood on his head came off and revealed an unfamiliar face…
Fernand became furious instantly. He squatted down, grabbed Schelt’s chest and growled,
“Speak! Who are you! Why do you have my blood leech spell on you!”
Schelt said intermittently in pain,
Seeing that he couldn’t even form complete words, Fernand could only cast a spell to relieve Schelt’s pain, then he began to question Schelt again.
Facing the terrifying black magic, Schelt couldn’t keep any secret. He finally stammered out everything that he had experienced.
After listening to it, Fernand immediately understood. Once he knew that the man in front of him was nothing more than a pawn, he cursed in a rage and stood up.
Looking at Schelt, who was under his feet, he smiled coldly and muttered something with his wand raised. He cast a “throat choke” on Schelt. Schelt immediately widened his eyes and gagged. He made noises with his throat, but couldn’t say a word as he rolled on the floor struggling.
The principle of this magic was to create a pair of invisible hands with force fields, which grab the target’s throat and suffocate it.
This magic was difficult as it took a long time to chant it, and he couldn’t lock onto the target after it was released. It was useless on an agile enemy — it was commonsense for anyone to dodge once he saw his your opponent raising their wand — but there was no such worry when it came to Schelt who was paralyzed with fear.
Soon, poor Schelt was strangled to death on the spot.
Fernand skillfully searched the corpse and took the 10 Galleons on it as his own, then he waved his wand and cast a basic acid magic on the corpse.
This magic could create a pool of strong acid and completely melt corpses, which was the best spell to destroy evidence.
Seeing Schelt’s body creaking and shrinking rapidly in the puddle formed by the strong acid, Fernand sneered and was about to turn around and leave.
However, Fernand didn’t know that right behind him, Fang Linyan had appeared and aimed at him with a standard half-kneeling gun shooting posture.
At the same time, Fang Linyan had already used the [Reconnaissance] skill. A series of information about Fernand had popped up on his retinas.
Fernand Ludos Mattes
Condition: Sub-health state, long-term black magic research and the ingestion of potions have put Fernand’s health in jeopardy, but he has a good habit of having a cup of black tea in the afternoon which suppresses these hidden symptoms temporarily.

Fernand Ludos Mattes was not an excellent magic apprentice when he was young, so he was ostracized by his peers. Eager to be first, he wanted to prove himself and carried out magical experiments day and night until an accident happened.
In this accident, Fernand Ludos Mattes was disfigured and another experimenter lost his right hand permanently.
Since then, Fernand Ludos Mattes’ mental state completely collapsed, and he had begun to blame others. In order to quickly gain strength to avenge those enemies in his minds, Fernand Ludos Mattes joined the Death Eaters. Soon, he became famous in the group due to their cruel methods, cruel personality, and bad temper.
TL: One turn kill? Or life and death battle with the dark wizard? By the way, wouldn’t his evaluation drop by indirectly causing death to the people in the world?
