The 29 students were grouped together in one of the training grounds, all their attention focused on Julia.
“Before you ask, there will be no spars today, only practice. Today’s lesson is Mana Coating, which is something most of you would ignore or ridicule.”
First, she demonstrated what Mana Coating is then begun her explanation.
“Like Magic, which is essentially the conversion of Mana into a specific element, Mana Coating makes use of the Mana inside one’s body to strengthen the body. Even if you’re not interested in using Mana Coating in the future, learning it remains mandatory. First, a body that is efficiently coated with Mana is more resistant than one without. A fall from a great height or getting hit by a moving vehicle can
“Remember Do Eun-Kyung?”As she was driving the car, Julia glanced at the silent youth and, with a smirk on her face, asked.Bin met her gaze and thought for a moment before shaking his head once. Still, Julia refreshed his memory by saying,“He’s my fiancé, whom we lied to when we coincidentally met. Remember? The day you took me to an abandoned hotel only to almost be buried alive?”Her voice contained a mix of blame and mockery, but Bin didn’t seem affected. He could vaguely recall that rich man but as he only met him once, and it was a brief encounter, the previous mention of his name didn’t ring any bells.“He may not look the part, but Eun-Kyung graduated from the magic academy. He’s a strong magic-user… and the perfect opponent for you to fight.”“Fig
“Got anything to say?”Do Eun-Kyung’s haughtiness was nowhere to be seen, he stood there and glared at Bin, somewhat unwilling to admit defeat this soon, but, ultimately, his fear of pain made him surrender.Bin was nonchalantly removing the icicle that pierced a small part of his abdomen. Not even a bit of blood came out, which startled the spectating Bryan.It didn’t take long for Eun-Kyung to leave the training facility, he was embarrassed and angry so trying to refute what happened or come up with an excuse will only lower his image.Bin was left alone with Julia and her older brother, both giving him inexplicable gazes. After an indeterminate amount of time in a totally uncomfortable sil
“Your prosthetic arm is an extra protection measure but it makes your training much harder.”Although it’s early in the morning, the dark-haired teacher looked very energetic, much more than Bin. She shook her head and sighed, slightly disappointed that Bin is missing a whole arm.Hands are, more or less, the most important body parts in manipulating Mana. Most magic-users, if not all of them, emitt their Magic directly from their hands, whether it’s from the fingers, or palms, or the hand as a whole.Not only that, but the hands facilitate the circulation of Mana, therefore, having not just a hand but a whole arm missing can be very detrimental and potentially slows down Bin’s magic advancement. “Who do we have here?”A fairly muscular student with long black hair pushed to the back using gel stepped forth, approaching Tybalt while snickering, an evil grin on his face.“I thought the principal warned you to stop causing trouble.”The man laughed as he mockingly spoke, though he did not fail to notice Bin.“You seem to have brought company today. Is he perhaps the new and mysterious transfer student?”As he asked that, he turned his head to the two students belonging to Bin’s class. They were two girls that dressed and acted like delinquents, but the funny thing is that they are pretty docile in class,

“Hurry up! I don’t have all night.”James was leaning against his car and angrily shouting at his subordinates, who were transporting the goods. They were in a private warehouse south of Weij City, in a region housing all kinds of factories and warehouses. The air is polluted and the area is not properly managed by the government, making it the perfect place for shady and illegal deals, pretty much like the one happening tonight.Melissa’s older brother, James, was here to supervise and make sure that things are properly handled, but, from the looks of it, he wasn’t doing a good job.He was flirting with a lady next to him and could not wait to get out of here and enjoy the rest of his night. He was supposed to be resting today but his father su
“Attacked, you say? And by just one person?”Francois was sitting cross-legged as he questioned his kneeling son. Unexpectedly, the father wasn’t at all angry, he was actually smiling, but that may be due to the presence of an unfamiliar woman in the room.“Y-yes father. He was wearing a mask and used strange magic.”“Strange?”The woman furrowed her brow and looked at the blond young man, a smiling soon surfacing on her beautiful face.Although he didn’t know the woman, James didn’t dare to act disrespectfully. She was his father’s esteemed guest and he ought to show her proper respect.
The talk with Jasmine lasted for half an hour, more or less, but instead of directly leaving the manor, Bin went to the garden behind the manor, the spot where he and Hyue used to meet in the past.As he had expected, the maid girl was sitting there alone, gazing at the starry sky and enjoying the warm breeze of Spring.“Hello.”Bin walked to the lone bench and greeted the girl, who had grown into a beautiful woman in the span of just one year. Hyue was older than both Bin and Jasmine, and, for some one of her age, she always acted mature and responsible, never demanding or complaining.“Hi.”The maid slightly bowed her head and reci
Due to various reasons, mainly what he heard from Angelica, Bin was incapable of sleeping or resting. He spent the whole night laying on the bed and thinking about all kinds of possibilities, hoping that Emilia’s theory is true. The theory revolves around three things; The Magicis Ignaro, the Tower of Sins, and Mina. What Angelica previously is that his sister might be alive and it was not just a spontaneous statement to grab Bin’s attention. It was Emilia who came up with this plausible theory and relayed it to Angelica, who had better chances in talking to Bin. After all, the Head Scientist was being shunned by her son and trying to force it will only complicate things. Fortunately, Angelica did her job flawlessly and told him about it. In essence, the theory links M
