“What are you talking about?”
Count Millennium asked, furrowing his forehead.
Alice, who has her head bowed in front of him, said again with an emotionless face.
“The young master knocked down the family’s apprenticeship wizards Daniel and Richard.”
Upon hearing that, Count Millennium sighed and raised his hand to support his forehead.
After closing his eyes for a while, he muttered quietly.
“This is crazy.”
Alice heard it and continued to explain.
“Daniel and Richard ignored the young master first and tried to use magic against him.”
“They ignored him for something.”
“…they asked if young master was going to class again this time.”
Alice, who was with him at the time, could clearly see that their words were words that clearly ignored Raymond’s status.
Count Millennium is also aware of their behavior to some extent.
“So? What did Raymond say that they tried to use magic?”
“Why does the family’s dogs bark at its owner?”
At Alice’s words, Count Millennium found this absurd.
This has never happened before.
Even when he had no talent for magic and his biological mother died years ago.
It’s his first time doing this.
‘He has been crooked since then… But he would always direct his anger towards the servants, it didn’t go all the way to the family’s wizards.’
This situation was confusing for the Count Millennium.
He could not understand why Raymond suddenly changed.
He frowned, and then looked at Alice.
“By the way, how did Raymond knock them down?”
“He punched them down.”
“With his fist?”
“Yes. He moved his fists and kicked them few times avoiding all the magic casted by the two apprenticeship wizards and soon, Daniel and Richard Paul were already lying on the floor.”
Alice spoke politely.
Upon hearing that, Count Millennium looked serious.
“What’s going on?”
Something he couldn’t understand was happening.
The situation was quickly organized.
The apprentice wizard who was right in front of Raymond left with the help of the female apprentice wizard due to Beatrice’s instructions, and soon the class began immediately.
“So you shouldn’t try to accept Mana into your body easily. Mana and the Wizard can never become one…”
Raymond looked at Beatrice, who conducting classes on the platform about complex magic introductory content.
She was very attractive.
Not just about appearance, but her magical knowledge made her stand out even more.
In addition, her explanation was so neat, so he was able to gain a basic understanding of magic immediately.
How magic is triggered, magical history and etc.
Raymond learned the knowledge that he could not get by reading the novel, The Master of Talent.
He just came here with the intention of seeing Beatrice and talking to her, but the contents of her class were quite interesting, so he wasn’t bored.
Someone sitting in the back raised their hand.
Beatrice looked at the apprenticeship wizard that looked a little clumsy.
“Yes, go ahead.”
“Just now, you said that Mana is making up the whole world.”
“Then, if you look at it, we are also made up of mana, so why are you saying that mana and wizard can never become one?”
At that question, Beatrice has between her eyebrows wrinkled.
It seems like she doesn’t like the question that much.
“Where are you from? Who are you?”
“I’m Nylon from Plain Magic Tower.”
“Good. Nylon from Plain Magic Tower. A long time ago, our Magic Tower conducted numerous studies. Among them, we also studied the correlation between water and people.”
Beatrice continued her words without being blocked.
Raymond was amazed by her smart appearance.
“Did anyone of you read ‘Water and People’ by Howard Royne?”
Nearly half of her apprenticeship wizards raised their hands.
Of course, Raymond didn’t know what the content of book of water and people was, so he just watched quietly.
“Howard Royne’s ‘Water and People’ explains the elements that make up a person’s body, and it describes that 70 percent of our body is water. Is that right?
“Other scholars also put forward the same figures, 65 percent, 68 percent, but it is undeniable that there is a large amount of water among the substances that make up our body. Is that right?”
At Beatrice’s words, everyone nodded.
Raymond also nodded at those same words because they were common sense.
70% of a person’s body is water, which is something that he has learned since childhood.
“Then Nylon from Plain Magic Tower.”
“Can you become one with water?”
“About 70 percent of your body is made up of water, so in that 70 percent you could be water itself.”
The apprenticeship wizard could not say anything.
Beatrice looked at him for a while before she spoke again.
“If you become one with water, you die. The same goes for Mana. If you try to be one with Mana, you die. Did you understand?”
“Yes, I understand.”
“Then, is it okay for me to start the class again?”
There have been no questions since then.
Beatrice proceeded with the class without interruption, and everyone listened carefully to her.
Questions poured out only after the class was already over.
“Ms. Beatrice! I wonder how you are about to have four circles even though you are 17 years old. Is there a special way?”
“The person who just asked that question. Who are you and where are you from?”
“I’m German from Pergio Magic Tower.”
“You are still at 1st circle, right?”
“How did you become a 1st circle wizard?”
“Study hard, train hard…”
“That’s what I did too.”
After Beatrice gave a simple answer, she opened her mouth, covering the book she was holding.
“Then, we’ll wrap up the class.”
That was the end.
Raymond could only learn one thing about her by taking the class.
“This is quite difficult.”’
That she has a stubborn personality.
He quickly got up from his seat and chased after Beatrice.
Raymond called her name while walking slowly.
Unlike other people’s respectful name calling for her, he didn’t put “-nim” on Beatrice.
TL: In Korea the suffix -nim is a form of respect to people above their status, senior or older people.
First of all, she and Raymond are in equal positions.
Beatrice, who was walking, glanced at him and immediately turned her head.
Why is that? Beatrice saw Raymond. ABut she just ignored him?
Her steps became slightly faster.
Raymond called her back in embarrassment.
Raymond called her name once again.
In front of Raymond, who was trying to follow, Barrier, a defensive magic spell, was created and blocked his way.
When Raymond was blocked by the barrier, he was a little speechless.
Aside thinking that it was ridiculous, he don’t understand why she’s doing this to him.
Raymond wondered if there was any other story he didn’t know.
“What on earth…”
Eventually, he couldn’t catch up to her again, and so he headed home.
“You’re back, Young master.”
As soon as he returned, Alice was there waiting.
She calmly greeted him, perhaps because she already knew he would come back at this time.
“Did you stay here all day?”
“No, I just got here. I knew your class would be over by now.”
She scratched her cheek and took a step.
“Let’s go to the room.”
“Young master. I have a bath water ready.”
“Since you moved your body so hard, I thought you’d want to wash your body.”
“No, I’ll just wash up.”
There was no need to refuse if she already prepared it.
After returning to the room, he immediately took off his clothes with Alice’s help and entered the bath.
He moved for a while, and his muscles clumped up. He didn’t forget to gently move his body to release it.
“This body doesn’t have enough muscle yet.”
When Raymond looked down, he could only sighed.
Thanks to his talent in swordsmanship, his body moved on its own, but now his muscles were screaming.
Since most of his muscles are under developed, it was natural to have muscle cramps after moving more than usual today
I think I’ll have a pretty hard time when I wake up tomorrow morning.
He hope that he will soon avoid having muscles cramps in the future.
“Hmm… I need to train my body first.”
Since Raymond is well aware that he is not talented in magic, it was better to use his time for magic training to train his body in the future.
The knock on the door rang in the big bathroom.
“Young master, this is Alice. Can I go in?”
“No, I’ll wash myself. Stay outside.”
He wasn’t used to having someone help him with washing himself.
Above all, it felt burdensome and weird, so he just feel comfortable being alone.
“It’s clear that Beatrice doesn’t like talking to me…Did she just hate me because I am not talented or is there any other special reason?”
He never imagined that he would be rejected so firmly.
Raymond thought for a long time, but he couldn’t reach up to a conclusion, he simply washed himself, put on a simple cloth, and went outside.
Alice, who was organizing the room, approached him and handed over the clothes.
Although he don’t know any story he has with Beatrice, Alice has been with him for a long time.
Wouldn’t Alice know why Beatrice is avoiding him?
“Yes, young master.”
“You know Beatrice, right?”
“Are you talking about Beatrice, the young lady of the Skylar family?”
Alice looks at Raymond and asks.
Raymond’s face was reflected in her clear eyes.
“That Beatrice Skylar.”
“Of course I know.”
“Did something happen between me and her? Today, I think Beatrice didn’t like me.”
Was the question strange?
Alice looked confused.
“Young master, if you’re not feeling well…”
“I’m fine. I just forgot somethings.”
Information about Raymond was all he got from novels and grasped over the past few days.
Of course, he couldn’t help but want to know the details.
Alice lowered her hand to Raymond’s waist and opened her mouth, while tying his belt.
“Four years ago, there was an accident.”
“A group of Orcs suddenly appeared at a hunting ground where wild pigs would usually come out, and the young master was in danger. At that time, Jerion saved the young master.”
Jerion? There was no such name when he recalled of the novel.
If so, it means that this is a person who did not appear in the novel.
Raymond just don’t know who Jerion is.
“He saved me?”
“Yes, and four years later, he was still unconscious due to the exhaustion of mana and trauma received while dealing with Orcs.”
“So he became a Vegetative man? Who is Jerion?”
At that question, Alice once again looks worried.
He shook his hand and urged her to answer, and she stared at him for a while and said.
“Jerion Skylar, he’s the elder brother of Beatrice.”
Her words made his mind blank.
I think I’m screwed.
