Eugene had never choked even if he chewed meat fast every morning. He didn’t think he’d be able to just by drinking tea. Eugene coughed as he tapped his chest.
It was surprising.
There are five towers in Aroth, the kingdom of Mado.
Red, blue, green, white, black.
Three hundred years ago, there was no black tower. But hundreds of years have passed since the promise of the warrior and the devil.
There were more than a hundred black wizards that Eugene killed in his previous life. After the promise of the warrior and the demon king, the Black Magician was treated as another type of magician and gained enough power to build a tower in Aroth.
Anyway, the red tower has been there since 300 years ago.
“Are you all right?”
Robertian looked at Eugene with astonishment.
“Oh, yeah, it’s okay… Yes, I’m fine.”
He just spits it out in surprise while drinking tea, but he felt embarrassed because everyone was looking in his way. Eugene caught the towel while spitting out a cough.
But even before cleaning the table, Robertian flicked his finger. The wet tablecloth was cleaned up.
It was magic.
“You must be very surprised.”
Eugene smiled awkwardly as he laid down his stretched hand. It was good at times like this to be young.
‘If he’s the Red Tower Master… He must’ve been a student of Senya.’
Strictly speaking, Eugene was not a student himself.
As Eugene remembered, the teacher of the Roman Empire was Senya’s disciple.
Although the line is quite different, the red tower Master, Robertian, and the green tower Master serve the wise Senya as their master.
It was understandable. Three hundred years ago, Senya became the youngest person in Aroth’s history to hold the position of a Green Tower Master.
A companion of the great Vermouth.
A great wizard who can kill even the devil and the dragon.
Countless wizards visited the Green Tower to become Senya’s disciple.
In addition, Senya has done many other feats. She revamped Aroth’s public magic books and advised other Tower Masters on magic.
In her later years, the wizards who had been taught by Senya sat at the top of the tower. The teachings continued to the present day, and the two great masters who claimed to be wise Senya’s disciples became the red and green masters respectively.
“Teacher’s Master’s Master…”
No matter how hard Eugene thought about it, he didn’t think that Robertian would have met Senya in person. Still, he didn’t expect to meet someone related to an old colleague here.
‘If it’s a red tower… Summoning magic is their specialty.’
Summoning magic was also Senya’s Magic. The house where most of the trip was lodged was also a summons from Senya.
“…You said your name was Eugene, didn’t you?”
Guillard opened his mouth. He was pointed out, but this time he wasn’t surprised or drinking tea. Eugene nodded slightly and turned to Guillard.
‘I was wondering when I’d be called by you.’
When he saw him in front of the house, he felt Guillard’s secret gaze.
“I heard from Theonis.”
The loser, Cyan, chewed his lips tight. However, Guillard pressed Cyan’s shoulders with his slow hands.
“My son… He insulted you and your parents.”
“Yes, but now there are no hard feelings left.”
Eugene sat upright in her posture.
“I was fighting to get rid of my feelings about him.”
“Even if I lost, I wouldn’t have left any feelings behind. I’m weak and I couldn’t keep my honor, so I have to endure insults.”
“You’re better than my son.”
Guillard grinned. He continued by tapping Cyan’s shoulder one more time.
“I`m not ashamed of your defeat. But I’m ashamed of you being ashamed of your defeat and looking at your father.”
“I heard it was a duel that started with your insult. But you lost the duel and didn’t apologize to Eugene.”
“Cyan, your last name is Lionhart. The great Vermouth is your forefather. If you were his blood, you should know how to respect not only yours but also your opponent’s honor.”
“I don’t think he respected my honor.”
