Chapter 234
"Milo, thank you so much!"

Troy struggled to stand up and bowed to his companion as a sign of gratitude .
Milo smiled and shook his head while handing a pill to him .
"This will help to heal your wounds . Focus on recovering while I gather the bodies of these worms, we will move as soon as you are better . "
Troy took the pill and sat back on the ground .
Milo had a rank 4 body and was older than him, he wouldn't object to anything he said .
A few hours passed in which the two nobles quietly cultivated to refill their centers of power .
"Time to go, I'm worried about the others . "
Milo ordered and Troy followed without complaints .
"This place is strange, I never knew magical beasts could set so many traps in such a short amount of time . "
Troy said, describing the events that led him to that situation .
"It is indeed strange . I was only attacked once and then I didn't find any trace of the magical beasts . They must have been focusing you the whole time since they understood that you are one of the weakest of our group . Luckily, I noticed your spell with my investigative technique, otherwise I would still be wandering aimlessly in one of the tunnels . "
Troy lowered his head listening to those words, he couldn't help but feel useless .
Milo put a hand over his shoulder and smiled warmly to him .

"You did well . You are still young but your character is already this strong, I'm sure you'll become a powerful cultivator in the future . If Manuel was in your place, he wouldn't have lasted this much . "
Troy nodded at that praise and lifted his head .
"What do we do now?"
Milo smiled again and pointed toward the deeper part of the lair .
"Lord Daniel has surely gone for the core of the lair . I believe that if we follow the movements of the beasts, we will find him . "
"What about Phoebe and Manuel?"
"Phoebe is not a problem, she is strong, she can take care of any number of rank 3 beasts . As for Manuel…"
Milo's eyes became cold as he spoke .
"If he dies here, his uselessness will be finally shown to the world . "
Troy's expression became complex after hearing those words .
"What is it?"
Milo noticed that change in his companion and asked that .
"Milo, I know that you don't really like him due to the events in the academy-"

"Damn right! He bragged so much about matching Daniel's cultivation speed and then he lost to a brat with common origins . He disgraced the whole noble society with his actions . "

Milo snorted, interrupting Troy's phrase .
"I was there, Milo . I was in his class . That guy, Vance, he is a ruthless man . If the Professors didn't intervene during the fight, Manuel would have died there . "
"What are you trying to say?"
"I saw him fight every week, Milo . He is honestly the strongest fighter I've ever seen, it was as if he was born with a saber in his hands . "

Troy was in the Grayshade class with Noah and June and the real-battle course was one of the most attended ones .
The students there had seen Noah's ability with his weapons, that's why they had never suspected about him having cheated in the entrance test .
"Stronger than Daniel?"
Milo's eyebrows arched as he asked that question .
Yet, Troy immediately shook his head .
"No, no . He is even younger than me, he can't match Lord Daniel's centers of power . I'm just saying, you shouldn't be so hard on Manuel . In that battle, he did his best but Vance has been simply too strong . Also, I think he was even holding back . "

"Holding back?"
At that moment, Milo was really surprised .
He despised Manuel for his defeat against a commoner but he had never imagined that the difference in power would have been so large .
"Yes . You probably don't know but it seems that no one is aware of his aptitude . He simply uses his martial art and his puppet every time . I don't believe that, in three years in the academy, he didn't buy a single spell for his element . "
Milo fell deep in thought .
He knew some rumors about Noah but they were mostly linked to his battle with Manuel .
Also, Noah was from a younger generation, the heirs of the noble families wouldn't be so interested in someone that young .
"What kind of cultivator is he?"
Milo broke the silence to ask that question .
"Aloof, a true loner . He didn't speak much and he often isolated himself in his lodgings . He seemed to care only about his cultivation and he didn't seem to care about girls until he started to live together with his sparring partner . I have to say that they make a scary couple . "
Milo ignored the last part of Troy's explanation and focused on one particular aspect .
"Do you think that it would be worth investing in him?"
Troy was slightly surprised by that question but then he understood what his companion meant .

"Yes, I don't see him becoming weak all of sudden and he would need someone that finances him . I believe we should try to rope him, he will be a huge asset in the Cause . "
Milo nodded before turning his gaze toward on side of the tunnel .
"I will consult with Lord Daniel about this, now we should deal with the worms . "
As soon as he finished his phrase, many holes appeared in the rocky wall and fifty or so worms came out of them .
There were few rank 3 beasts at that time, with the majority of them being in the second rank .
"It seems that we are getting close!"
Milo shouted .
Meanwhile, in another part of the lair .
Daniel walked calmly in one of the tunnels .
A white orb was on his shoulder which illuminated the area .
Daniel didn't need that light to see but the orb was useful to attract the worms and detect their movements from behind the walls .
'What is this?'
He thought, stopping when he arrived in a large area full of dark-red puddles .
