It is said that magicians are rare, but releasing mana was not difficult in itself.
There is no such thing as releasing mana within Five minutes, yet Raymond did so.
Not only the old man, but also Raymond didn’t expect it.
“Um……. Old man, is this mana?”
When he opened his hand, something danced as if they were shaking. The blue-colored stripe was faint, but the Mana was clear.
“What do you think? This is gonna change your perception of me being a fool, right?’
Raymond said so.
His reaction was not that much.
“Well, Your Highness……!”
“Gee, this mana…Did you materialize it?”
Raymond thought something was wrong as how the Old Man responded.
When Raymond waved his hand, the blue mana danced.
The old man trembled as if he were about to collapse within a minute.
But it was not a seizure. He can tell by the old man’s face.
He was smiling.
“Fifth prince, Your Majesty! Did you know how to handle Mana?”
“Oh, no…I’ve never learned anything like that…….”
He spoke frankly.
The Emperor once tried to hire a magic teacher and a swordsman, but the Fifth Prince refused. So he didn’t know how to.
Eventually, the old man had a seizure. He tore up the space with his trembling hands and took out his staff.
‘The Sea Heart. If one took out the symbol of Blue Tower, is like representing the blue tower itself ‘
“My name is Lisefield Dior, and as you can see from this, I am from Blue Tower.”
“I didn’t know you were from the blue tower…….”
This was an awkward part on Raymond’s side because he read the book before, but Lisefield Dior didn’t have enough time to notice it.
“I was only going to help you open your Mana channel and give few tips on how to handle it, but this old man has become greedy.”
“Be my disciple.”
“What’s the benefit of that?”
“Me and the blue tower will stand behind the Fifth Prince.”
The master of the Blue Tower was greedy.
It’s clear now. The Fifth Prince, Raymond, turned out to be a talented fool.
* * *
‘Me and the blue tower will stand behind the Fifth Prince.’
Returning to the Fifth Prince’s Palace, Raymond recalled what Lisefield said before.
In the novel “The fallen Empire,” Lisefield bowed his head only after the main character found the magic book and the Spear of sacrifice.
However, thanks to the magical talent that even Raymond himself did not anticipate, this process has been omitted considerably.
‘But…… do I really need to become his disciple?’
If the Southern Magic Tower Alliance finds the lost Spear of sacrifice, there will be support from the blue tower anyway.
‘The protagonist doesn’t have to do the annoying thing about being a disciple, right? Now that I know the existence of my talent, I have to use it.’
What if the Fifth Prince, who used to be a fool, showed better magical talent than the Third Prince. And what if the Magic Tower alliance are deprived of the Spear of Sacrifice’s power?
“The Magic Towers, which values orthodoxy, will remain in place, but the possibility of the Red Tower moving should be also considered.”
If he was supported by the blue and red towers, the third prince’s largest support base can be shaken and absorbed by him.
‘This is the best I can do now. I got to know my talent for magic. Then I should use it, rather than let it rot. I was going to learn how to handle mana anyway.’
It’s just getting a little faster. He now possesses a “power” to survive from the event where the extermination of the Royal Family happened.
“And I just need to learn magic to get it.”
He said to himself casually. Learning magic will make it easier to collect ancient artifacts.
A satisfied smile spread around Raymond’s mouth. He walked calmly in front of the mirror.
As he organized his thoughts, he looked up within Raymond’s memory to recall the settings he had read before.
‘Was he a genius?’
At first, he would hide it because he didn’t have someone to back him up, and after the death of the Third Empress, he would have intentionally turned into a fool.
Fate seemed to ask questions to the Fifth Prince, who have awakened his talents again.
“Are you asking me if I can keep it?”
A smile spread around my mouth.
“Of course I can.”
