As Jasmine and co were in a heated debate, Bin’s group had arrived near the underground and had to camp for a couple of days so that Betelgeuse could assess the situation and see if there were any dangers.
“It’s as we expected, the lifeforms living around the tomb have mutated and evolved. I’m sensing 10… maybe 15 of them lurking inside.”
“Ehm.. I’d say 3 or 4.”
Although on Earth, there weren’t any monsters like in Elmina’s world. Nevertheless, Betelgeuse was aware of the grading system they give to monsters.
In total, there are 8 grades, with 1 being the weakest a
The confrontation between Trewan and the rest did not last long and it ended with his and Raymond’s disappearance. Jasmine and co decided to wait for Bin’s return at the refugee camp, hoping that he’ll come back soon.It would be a lie to say that Trewan’s harsh words did not affect Emilia and Jasmine, however, they insisted on meeting Bin… one wanting to meet her son and the other needing to apologize and correct her past mistakes. Alas, Trewan’s words could not be more true as Bin really had no thoughts of reuniting with any of them.This new yet malformed life he had been granted was dedicated to eradicating the facilities. It’s far too late to lead a normal life, especially not after Mina’s life was sacrificed for him.
Descent of Magic book, chapter 45 ‘Mana Circuits’The human body requires oxygen to live, but that’s not the only thing. Blood, water, and other things are also mandatory and, without them, the body cannot function.With the arrival of this new type of energy, named Mana, the humans on Earth managed to cope with it and integrate it into their system. Mana has become a common thing, always stored in the human body, either in small or large quantities. It also depends on the individual and their capacity and limitations, meaning that not everyone can control the Mana and transform it into elements.Basically, the Mana in our bodies take the form of a circuit, very much like an electricity circuit, however, it covers the entire body. The
“You’re useless! Get out my sight!”The chase after Bin and his group was unsuccessful. Not even with the continuous spatial teleportations were the couple able to locate their targets. Like always, the head scientist snapped at her ex-husband and berated him for his uselessness.To think that an extinguished and powerful magic-user wasn’t able to bring his own son back home… Emilia had grown tired of yelling at Thomas or even relying on him. Furthermore, he did not seem that motivated to pursue this task, he even made it rather obvious.Unlike her, he did not hold that much attachment to his own children, or at least it seemed that way. And so, with no lead to follow, Emilia was left alone to figure out where her son might have gone. It won&rs
Unexpectedly, as Beatrice was hugging him, she started tearing up.“I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you.”She kept hugging him for close to a minute before reluctantly letting go and wiping her teary eyes. Bin did not openly show it but he was getting slightly emotional too, after all, Beatrice was like a mother to him.The things she had taught him could not be counted, furthermore, she fed him and clothed him, basically doing anything a mother would do.Beatrice caressed his cheek but ended up frowning as a chilling coldness penetrated her skin. Feeling embarrassed that she was still treating him like a kid, Bin wryly smiled and awkwardly backed away while motioning for her to sit.
The day of the auction has arrived but, as promised, Bin won’t be attending.This auction was illegal and hosted by people from the underworld, brokers from the black market, to be precise.It will be held in a grand villa at the outskirts of Frankfurt, nevertheless, many famous individuals will be present. Expensive cars of all types were parked in front of the villa, guards were monitoring and patrolling the area and magical barriers were erected to protect the place from any incidents.“Invitation, please.”A tall man wearing a black suit stood at the entrance of the villa and handled the guests. Currently, he was facing Trewan, Beatrice, and Raymond, both wearing respectable clothes, fitting for such an even
Bin focused all of his attention on the doctor, he failed to notice the person sitting opposite the man.A cry of surprise and disbelief interrupted the momentary silence, it originated from the woman from the aforementioned guest. Her dark red long hair was resting on her shoulders, she wore a black leather jacket and jeans with the same color.This woman was someone Bin was familiar with but did not want to meet, especially in here. Dr. Scarlett, Ann’s little sister and Galen’s student, an extinguished individual and an expert in the medical field.Upon seeing the pale-faced Bin appear out of nowhere, Scarlett was truly shocked, in every sense of the word. It’s as if she had seen a ghost, her body wobbled to the side and she almost lost consciousness.
“Sit down first.”Jürgen frowned at the standing Bin, who was staring so intently at him. The full check-up took a toll on his old body, his back was hurting and he had a headache due to focusing on one thing for such a long period of time.Nevertheless, he did not rest but turned his monitors toward his patient and began his explanation“To not complicate things, I will divide the results into three parts; The Heart, the Mana Circuit, and the bones.”He took a deep breath and stared back at the expressionless youth,“First and foremost, let me say that the results were within my expectations. Beatrice already told me that
Two plans were concocted, one by Trewan and Raymond and the other by Beatrice. The first heist, meticulously planned by the self-proclaimed gentleman, is all about stealth and trickery, focusing on stealing the necklace without getting caught.In a way, it was a challenge between Trewan and Beatrice, meant to declare who’s the better thief.Though simplistic in nature, Trewan’s plan would begin just as the auction starts. Unfortunately, he can’t fake his identity as his face is widely-known, especially amongst the guests attending the auction, most of which are highly-extinguished magic-users and corrupt government officials that yield a considerable amount of power and influence, both in and out of their respective countries.For that reason, Trewan
