It was midnight. The moon gloriously shining on the sky, shone on the gazebo at the courtyard of the Cross estate. A rhythmic tune of a guitar and the beautiful voice of a boy echoes in the middle of the night under the gazebo. Ralph walks in to the courtyard following the melody and bows to the singer. “Ah… You are back.” Adrian stops the strumming and pays attention to Ralph. “Yes, young master. I have successfully fulfilled the mission. Here are the insignias that you hand over to me. It was helpful. Thank you for your consideration.” Ralph hands over the insignias to Adrian. "That is good. Everything is settled here. The town and Cross Catch. All we need to do is wait. There is 2 days more for us to depart to the capital. You can get some rest.” Adrian shows a calm smile. “Young master, you met with Kathleen and went to the hospital during the day alone?” Ralph asks what Adrian does when he was gone. “It was just a short trip. Don’t worry.
After dismissing Ralph, the king looked at Arnold. “Arnold… swear to me and the gods that this meeting never happen.” Elijah said in a serious tone. “Hmm? Ah, yes, Your Majesty. I swear by the gods and by your name this meeting never happened. I was never here.” Arnold was confused at first but he does anything as the king ordered him to. “Good. You can leave now” Elijah nods and dismiss the Royal Knight Commander. “As you wish Your Majesty.” Arnold kneels in front of the king and queen then leave the throne room. “That is a very shocking information. Demonic beast from the underworld. Miasma and all. I think I have read about the underworld when I was studying in the Dawn Kingdom.” Charlotte said in a solemn tone. “I also have encountered some ancient records about this. My father keeps it in the basement of the library where the other ancient records are kept hidden. The question is how does that 10-year-old boy knows? Who is he real
Inside a wide indoor training room under a glorious palace, two children are circulating mana under the guide of their father. It was a rare occurrence as their father is a king. The king of the Twilight Kingdom. “Hmm… that is good. Charles, you are getting better at this.” Elijah praises his son. “Really? Ouch. Dad?” Charles opens his eyes then smiles brightly at his father but he got a knock on his head. “Focus, Charles. Keep at it, Chelsea. You almost reach 2 Star stage.” Elijah said to his daughter who did not say anything and keep circulating mana. Charles looked at his twin. He snorts and gets back to circulating mana. Elijah smiles seeing the twin’s interaction. A sibling competition is always welcome but seeing his children behave like this he thought it is adorable. “Charlotte is with Marie. There are no meetings today. Everything is handled but the new trouble brewing across the kingdom is worrying. The problem is we don’t kn
Some of the children had mana as they are the same age if Adrian. The weird thing that Adrian discovers is that their mana is totally absent. He knows they don’t have the same capabilities as Adrian’s mana mastery. Adrian had read about poisons and already made a book of ‘Herbology’ that Marylyn borrowed. Inside the book Adrian had a note about ‘Rigor Poison’. It’s a clump of elemental mana that is mixed with the creature’s blood. It is feed into the victim, to put them in to a deep sleep state while preserving the body condition. In short, it is a food preserving method for the monsters. It is hard to detect externally but they can be spotted or detected in the change of the victim’s blood. It can be cured by a standard antidote or Light spell: Cure to counteract the poison. “Is he new to this job?” Adrian stares at Jonah begun to trust the young priest less. “Ahem… Priest Jonah… Have you tried to use ‘Cure’ on the children?” Adrian questions the pri
“I’m done changing. Let’s head towards town and see the situation.” Adrian is now wearing a new set of noble clothes. Ralph picked out a slick black theme set. He did not shy to splurge on the clothes with 2 gold coins. As Adrian strides into town, the people stare at him with awe and admiration. They did not forget to compliment on the new clothes he wore with a nod. Adrian looks dashing as he always does. The first place he visits is the town’s hospital. The hospital is just a 1 storey building and it is not too big. Upon entering the hospital, priest and patients are roaming in the halls going from room to room. The rescuers and the children totalling 23 people involved must on their beds, either sleeping or groaning in pain. Suddenly, a man in priest garbs arrive in front of the two and showing a polite smile. “Hello young master, I’m Jonah, the local priest. I manage the hospital under the orders of the church. I heard you save the people
“Hum hum… hum hum… hummm hum hum.” Adrian is humming a song and circulating mana while holding Durandal for extra efficiency. “This in not the time for you to be humming a song. We are being chased by an army here!” Cassie screamed out inside Adrian’s head. She is the one who is propelling Adrian froward like a torpedo. Zig zagging to dodge projectiles shot by the swarm of lake imps. “Keek.. keik… kek..” The sound of hundreds of lake imps chasing after Adrian. The swarm is led by the Lake Imp King. Its size is as big as a hobgoblin, almost 2 meters tall. Its not difficult to differentiate them. There is only one of them had a massive difference in size then the rest of them after all. Also the blue crown is a huge give out. “Hehehe… I’m just trying to make a choice. Either I exterminate all of them….” Adrian is actually thinking while humming a song? “Of course, just kill of them! What’s more to think about?” Cassie yelled out making Adrian’s
‘Flash of Light’ is Adrian’s self-made spell. It is the only spell he created using ‘Deconstruct’ and ‘Construct’ that provide absolute mobility. When Adrian created this spell, he did not know that there are other elements beyond the 10 elements, Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Smoke, Ice, Lightning, Plant, Light and Dark. After reliving the live of the Primordial Adam and Eve, he discovered God Elements. Space, Time, Divine and Creation. The elements that only Gods can possess. Eve is the first one to broke the taboo, but was spared after ##### decision. The Space element that Eve created is kept a secret and the Gods had prepared portals throughout Etterra as a gift form the duels shown by the Primordials which had been lost in time by now. Adrian tried to copy what Eve had done to use Space element but the magic circle keeps breaking because he is still weak currently, compared to Eve. So, the only reliable method he had now is the Light spell, ‘Flash of Light’
Adrian opens the ‘Map’ and take a look at the cavern structure. Through the ‘Map’ he saw it all the lake imps and the humans included. “Eh? They are split?” Adrian is puzzle looking at the ‘Map’ that is indicating many blue dots for humans and red for the imps. The positions are split into three. All of them are surrounded by red dots. At least 200 of the each. The closest group is 1 km away from him. Adrian saw there are a few red dots deeper in the cavern. That must be the nest. “Aria, suggestions? Should I use Lighting or Light?” Adrian turns to Aria for a solution. [Responding. ARIA suggests Light. Lightning will spread into an uncontrollable level if the distance is too far.] “Then Light it is then.” Adrian nodded to the suggestion. Although his Lightning magic is powerful and he is great at controlling it but being underwater will make it difficult to control it. He just realizes that. [Selected: Excalibur] “Let’s go Cali
