Raymond put the book, which he was pretending to read, back into the bookshelf.
He felt an intense gaze behind his back.
Before he knew it, the old man with a brown robe was standing against the wall.
“Old man. Do you have a lot of time to spare?”
He said indifferently, yet he couldn’t help but pay attention to the skills that the old man may do behind him.
“Now that I’m old, all I have left is time.”
The old man replied with a grin.
After turning his head and peeking at the scene, Raymond shook his head with a short sigh.
Anyway, only the royal family can enter the secret room where the “Spear of Sacrifice” magic book was.
The “main character” used some kind of method to destroy the restriction access, but the old man, Lisefield Dior, who was now following him, doesn’t know about it.
“If you have so much time left, will you teach me how to deal with Mana, rather than doing nothing?”
“What did you just say?”
It was a stiff voice, but it was not unpleasant.
He was a little surprised by the unexpected words of the Fifth Prince.
‘The Fifth Prince wants me to teach him how to handle Mana? Was the rumor true?’
From the eyes of the elderly, shock, fear, and chaos are mixed.
Raymond shook his head again and gave a short sigh. He could have gotten used to the reactions of people around him, but it was not easy.
‘How an asshole have you been?….’
Suddenly, he felt like he was getting tired.
‘There’s still no answer. I just asked him to teach me how to handle mana.’
The Spear of sacrifice, unlike other magic skill, does not consume mana. So he doesn’t really have to learn how to handle Mana.
But recently, he spent a lot of time in this chamber but still couldn’t find the Spear of Sacrifice.
He can’t just go around the chamber for 24hours without doing nothing, so he just wanted to use his spare time to learn how to handle mana.
It doesn’t really matter if the old man refuses.
‘Well, there’s no way that those from the tower teaches fool people.’
There was still no answer. So he gave up cleanly and was about to start searching again.
“How did you know I was a wizard? Fifth Prince?”
His voice was quite serious.
“When I first met you, you used Invisibility magic.”
‘Why, is he asking something obvious?’
Raymond gave him a tired look as if the old man was an idiot.
“I am a talented person that deals with the art of Invisibility.”
‘Oh, I didn’t expect this.’
After maximizing his brain thoughts, Raymond came up with an excuse and opened his mouth.
“There was something here that smelled like mana.”
The old man had his eyes and his mouth wide open with Raymond’s answer. He looked very surprised.
“Excuse me, Your Highness the Fifth……. I know you don’t practice mana, but you smelled Mana in my Invisibility Magic?”
‘Of course it’s a lie, but let’s just go with the flow.’
“Fifth Prince, you said you didn’t know who I was, right?”
“Is there a need to know?”
“You said you weren’t interested.”
“Should I be interested? I’m sure you are a high-ranking wizard, because you used such magic…….”
The old man’s face became serious.
Raymond tried to relax with an awkward smile, but……
‘Did I say something wrong?’
An uneasy thought came into his mind as he slowly raised his head. He was wondering if his bluff was found out, but the answer he heard was different from what he expected.
“I will take responsibility and teach you how to handle mana.”
The voice of the old man spoke with a serious face, he could even feel his determination.
On the contrary, Raymond was embarrassed.
‘No, what’s wrong with this old man all of a sudden?’
He didn’t know why.
“Well, yeah, thank you.”
“Do you want to start right away?”
“I thought I’d take a break, so I think it’d be good if you taught me now.”
When he nodded and answered, a smile spread around the old man’s mouth.
“Don’t laugh with that strange look, old man. I’m only going to learn the basics.”
‘I don’t want to go into the deep-rooted process and walk the path of a wizardry yet.’
Finding the Spear of sacrifice is the priority, and when it comes to Mana, learning only the basics is enough.
“Let’s do that.”
The old man replied with a grin. And from that day on, the class where he learns how to handle Mana started.
