Chapter 43

In this month and a half of isolation, Noah's advancements were immense .

The first one was the conclusion of the fifth cycle .

With the help of 12 bottles of Beast's essence and 2 bottles of Inner-energy potion coupled with one month of natural absorption from the acupoints, the fifth cycle got completed in less than three months!

The second one had happened this same day a few minutes before .

He was training in the Kesier rune when its image in his sea of consciousness formed completely .

After that, a humming sound shot out from it and reverberated inside his whole mental sphere making it tremble and enlarge .

Noah only felt a splitting pain in his head and endured until the pain dispersed and the sphere stopped shaking .

The world he saw after the process was over was a different one .

Even though it was deep in the night he could see things almost as clearly as during the day and there seemed to be more details on those .

He took one of his black sabers and carefully inspected it .

The black blade looked perfectly smooth before he advanced but now Noah could see some small dents on it .

He put back the saber and focused on his hearing and perception .

He could sense all the people on the floor!

If he focused enough he could hear the steps of the servants still awake in the distance .

He could feel the air entering his lungs, the blood running in his veins, the "Breath" filling his body .

Even his thoughts seemed to run more smoothly and at a higher speed .

He tried to move the "Breath" according to his martial art with his fingers and he noticed a faint gaseous trace of the color of the rainbow left in the air .

'Is that the Breath of Heaven and Earth? Can I actually see it now?'

He was amazed for a moment before he shook his head .

'No, that was the concentrated "Breath" inside my body . I don't know if I would be able to feel the one of other people so easily too . '

He then lied in his bed to rest since his mind was still a bit confused from the advancement .

'The only problem is how Master will react tomorrow . '




"WHAT?! How is it possible that you completed the fifth cycle?"

William had his mouth wide open and was standing in front of Noah in their usual training room .

"How is it possible? Even with the Inner-energy potion, you should have at least still two months to go! Are you sure that your acupoints stopped working?"

Noah only nodded and then strongly exhaled to calm himself .

He took something from inside his clothes and raised it in front of his Master .

William was still shocked by the earlier news that he simply stared at Noah's hand without recognizing its contents .

Then he finally discerned that something was strange and picked up the sheet in front of him, he unfolded it and looked at the Kesier rune written on it .

He furrowed his brows and looked at Noah's eyes with a confused expression .

"Are you giving up on being a mage?"

Noah could only show a wry smile as he looked around him for a bit, then he got close to his Master and spoke with a soft voice .

"Actually, I would need the next rune because I became a mage last night . "

A yell that made the walls tremble sounded in the guards building, the soldiers in the courtyard felt that the noise was similar to the vice-captain's voice .

Inside the room, Noah was sitting on his knees with his hands tightly plugging his ears .

He was waiting for his Master to come out of his amazement afraid that he would release another monstrous yell .

William was breathing roughly with his eyes wide open, but after some seconds, he forced himself to calm down and focused on Noah's forehead, staring at it with a serious gaze .

Noah felt some pressure on his sea of consciousness and so operated his mental energy to defend his sphere .

The fight between internal and external pressure lasted for a minute before William stopped his probing and sat in front of Noah with an incredulous expression .

"You really did it . "

Noah just nodded, he really could not give any explanation about it .

"If I was called a rare genius what would you be called then?"

William was deep in thought before he understood the real problem about the whole situation .

"I'll find an excuse to get another copy of the second rune, the inner circle must not know that you became a mage, it's too dangerous . "

He still didn't realize that what he was doing was lying to his superiors .

"Then, after you pass the sixth treatment, it's better if you always be outside doing missions . The possibility of the family giving you a magic scroll is low but it's better to accumulate merits before you know your element . You never know, they might actually acknowledge you as a real descendant!"

William was planning the best course of action for his disciple, uncaring that his words were an act of treason themselves .

Noah, looking at the mumbling man in front of him, could not help but feel some warmth inside his chest .

'He is really a good Master, if only his position wasn't so tied to the Balvan family . . . I should at least make sure not to make trouble for him when I'll run away . '

William stopped his planning when he noticed his disciple staring at him with a simple and honest smile on his face .

"What are you looking for?"

Noah only gave a simple answer .

"Thanks . "

William was a bit stunned but then smiled shaking his head .

He placed his hand on Noah's head an ruffled his hair a little before speaking with a joyous tone .

"You worked hard, it's fair to have some rewards, and if Heaven and Earth won't give it to you, I will . "

The internal conflict that the vice-captain of the guards had before was solved .

'If humans are not fair, so be it . At least I'm doing my part to make things right . '

Noah could not know of his Master's doubts so he didn't really understand his words .

William rose from the floor humming a happy tune and then sat behind a table in the room to sort through some reports, yet, after some minutes, he looked at the kid still sitting on the ground .

"What is it?"

He was still smiling when he asked that .

"Uhm, Master, are we not gonna do the treatment today?"

William's newfound happiness vanished, replaced by a familiar feeling of irritation .
