Chapter 46



"Magic scrolls and various techniques are off-limit . As for resources, I believe we can work out a deal . "

Kevin's answer was immediate, he knew too well the difficulties of getting stronger without a noble status .

Noah had suspected such restrictions so he demanded what he needed more at the moment .

"I need potions or pills for the nourishment of the body, the level must be the same as the Inner-energy pill . "

Kevin furrowed his brows .

He was surprised that such a young man knew of the existence of the Inner-energy pill but he was principally impressed by the fact that Noah directly requested something of that value .

"I don't have the authority to promise such a good reward . "

Noah shrugged his shoulders at the answer .

"Then bring me to someone who has it . "

Another stalemate followed by, with a giant man and a kid staring at each other in silence inside the carriage .

At some point, Kevin nodded .

"Follow me, and please remember to be respectful . "

Kevin jumped off the carriage with Noah following close behind him and went for the second-last carriage of the caravan .

He knocked at the door and bowed speaking in a firm voice .

"Young Master, it's me . "


A young voice came from inside the carriage .

"Come in . "

The door opened and Kevin went through it indicating to Noah to follow .

A young man donned in green was sitting inside the carriage with a chalice in his right hand .

He had curly blond hair and some traces of beard, he was around 14-15 years old and had a pale complexion .

A bit of arrogance was exuded from his expression .

Noah looked attentively at the heir of the Lansay family and could not help but feel disappointed .

'He is so weak, what's the point of being a noble if you don't even make use of your status to increase your strength . No wonder his uncle is so close to deposing him . '

There was the faint presence of "Breath" around him which meant that he had at least trained in some body-nourishment technique but, apart from that, he had only his status to protect him .

Noah was still staring at the young man when he felt and angry gaze looking at him .

He turned in its direction and saw Kevin staring at him as he was waiting for something .

'Oh right, a weak noble is still a noble . '

Noah lightly bowed .

"Greetings, heir of the Lansay family . "

The nobleman seemed to notice Noah's presence only after he spoke and looked with an inquisitory gaze toward Kevin .


"He is Noah, the disciple of a good friend of mine . He will be a good asset in this mission . "

Kevin spoke and then he turned to Noah .

"He is Basil Lansay, son of Benedict Lansay, the true heir to the title of patriarch . "

Basil put the chalice down and asked with an annoyed tone .


"Why did you brought him here, what's the matter?"

Kevin bowed .

"He is asking for a reward that I don't have the authority to promise . "

Basil snorted .

"Hmph, once I get access to the treasury I can make sure that you won't have to work anymore in your life . There is no need to come here in person . "

Kevin continued .

"He is asking for body-nourishment pills, and of high level too . "

Basil's eyes opened wide .

"How can someone younger than me be worthy of such resources, just kick him out and teach him a lesson . "

Noah got immediately irritated and a cold pressure began to be exuded from him .

The pressure emitted from a mage was unsustainable by a weak person like Basil and he started to gasp for breath .

At that moment though, Kevin's killing intent surged again forcing Noah to retract the pressure .

Basil breathed roughly and got angry beyond reason .

"How dares a lowly one like you hurt me! Kevin, don't bother with what I said earlier, just kill him and show his corpse to those animals out there . Maybe they will understand the difference in status this way!"

However, Noah was already going out of the carriage .

'Nevermind, it's useless to take on such a risky mission just for reputation and merits . I'll go back to the mansion and make up an excuse . '

Before he jumped off though, Basil's voice sounded again .

"Wait!"

Noah turned to look at Basil .

"It seems that I misjudged you . I indeed need strong people for this mission since we will have to go against the guards of my uncle . We can work out a deal, but first, you have to apologize for your behavior from earlier . "

'So he does have some intelligence between all the noble crap . '

He looked in Kevin's direction and saw him smiling proudly while nodding at him, he presumably managed to persuade the young noble with his words .

"No . "

Noah's answer was firm .

Kevin's smile froze and even the young heir was at loss for words, he only managed to stammer a weak question .

"W-Why?"

"Because you are weak, noble or not you don't deserve my apologies . "

Basil got angry again and was about to yell when Kevin placed his hand on the nobleman's shoulder .

"Young master, I know that he is rude but we really need all the help that we can find . Only once you get your position as a patriarch you can act as overbearing as you want . "

Noah just shook his head hearing these words .

'Don't tell me that even the descendants of the Balvan family are like this . Maybe my theory on the idiocy of weak people is right . '

The discussion between Kevin and Basil went on for a while, with Noah's irritation increasing for every second that he was forced to hear more of it .

In the end, Basil agreed to Noah's request and Kevin hurriedly carried him away before he said something that could ruin again his young master's mood .

When they were back in the previous carriage Noah could not help but mock Kevin .

"A mighty cultivator like you being forced to be the nanny of a spoiled kid, you sure have it rough . "

A slight smirk was on his face as he looked at the big man massaging his temples to calm himself .

"It's not entirely the young master's fault . He grew up with the descendants of the Shosti family bulling him all the time and when his moment to do the bullying finally came he met with a man like you . Don't worry, when we reach the mansion I'll personally make sure that you get what he promised . "

Noah nodded, he believed in Kevin words .

Meanwhile, the trial for the escort mission outside the caravan was over .

They were ready to set off .
