Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! Chapter 10
Encounter with my magic master
“Finally, I could met human on the same wavelength. What is your name?”
The next day after I heard the talking corpse’ stories from father, I entered the forest as usual, a person around age of 30 with pale skin talked to me.
“My name is Alfred Rainford. A mage retainer in Brihedar margrave territory during his lifetime.”
This person who suddenly talk to me, apparently was the talking corpse in the topic.
And he was not caught at all in my detection magic, he suddenly talked to me when I facing down in the place for gathering so I was still shocked.
“I seems to have surprised you. I have finally meet the human with the same wavelength so I got impatient. Sorry.”
This figure, speech and behavior, name and also a gentleman, handsome nii-san had apologetically bowed to me who was surprised.
With such good personality and also handsome, a handsome man who I would be likely in love if I was a woman.
It would be perfect if his skin is not pale but it was said that the pale skin is the characteristic of the talking corpse.
“You are quite skilled in detection magic considering your age, Or you can say that a mage that can use detection magic like this is valuable. Ah, about me being not caught to your detection, that doesn’t mean all ghost type monster is not get caught to this. I am just an expert in deceiving detection magic.”
“That’s a frightful magic.”
“You’re right. It was magic that maybe only 10 people in this continent can use it. Of course I am going to have you learn it too.”
From the talking corpse sudden proposal, I unconsciously let out a strange voice.
“Did you heard the method for the talking corpse to die peacefully?”
“Yes, fulfill their wish in the story I heard.”
“My wish is to meet disciples to bestow magic that I obtained in my life for 30 years. You excels in magic and has been successful in obtaining nearly first cla.s.s ability from self-taught. The comprehension of magic is accomplished almost self-taught but you can learn the secret from me even for one week, your proficiency would accelerate.”
After such exchange, I becomes Alfred Rainford disciple who was mage retainer of the former Brihedar margrave.
In the morning, when I go towards the depths of the forest after finis.h.i.+ng a simple training of martial arts, my master who prepared the prey and gathering materials for me to carry in order to deceive my family had been waiting with a smile in there.
The time for hunting and gathering was put for magic training as much as possible.
“But still, that was amazing.”
“When you can use magic. You won’t be worried about provisions.”
As expected, Master also skilfully take down the guinea fowl quickly with magic.
And he also acquired my crossbow magic very quickly by imitating it.
“Well then, let’s begin.”
“What should we do first?”
“All right. It’s training method for capacity adjustment.”
I don’t know about this at all as I am a self-taught but there this training method that increase the magic capacity at once in a short period of time.
Creating a circle while grasping both hands to each other and gradually circulate a lot of magic in both bodies.
Then the magic capacity of the lesser magical power could have the same amount with the many magical power one.
“But there some problem. Since maximum magic capacity of that person has been determined from the beginning and if exceeded that, the magic capacity didn’t increases.”
In short, when a person with 10 and 100 magic capacity was matched, the person with 10 magic capacity theoretically becomes 100.
But it didn’t grow up if that person magic limit is 10, when it is 30, it rises only to 30.
Even if it didn’t go up nothing but 100 or 200, I can’t really skip out training even if it was like that.
“But still, I have ten times more magic capacity that you had. And it should help you who still have grown in magic.”
“Is it safe for the magic capacity to suddenly growth?”
“Hahaha, it won’t explode. When a large amount of magic thrown to a person with low limit magic capacity at once, it will became ill for two-three days because of magic sickness. There is no danger in life though.”
While listening to such description, master and I connect both our hands.
Master seems to be dead after all, his hand was a little cold.
After I close my eyes, while both sides let the magic power well up from the hand which connected us together, I visualize the image of flowing magic to the magic bag through partner’s magic path.
Then, I visualize the image of vast magic power flows gradually from master hands.
“Oh, this is more than my expectation.”
About ten minutes this state has had continued, the flow of magic power suddenly stop at once.
“Good, capacity adjustment’s done with this.”
When he said the adjustment ritual’s done, master talks to me with s.h.i.+ning eyes.
“It just like I expected. Your current magic capacity is the same level with me now, But it is not the limit yet either. You would become a great mage who goes down in history.”
“I guarantee. You can become a mage that exceeds me. If you continues to steadily training without being conceited.”
After one week, I keeps taking the training attentively from master.
It was expected that I can’t practice a wide range of a high rank combat magic but that’s not really a problem as I can go alone in a place with no people later, I mainly continued on training in other difficult special magic.
“What is that rod master?”
“Something I made, some part of Magic sword hilt.”
“So master can also create a magic tool.”
“Just the simple one though.”
It was written in the book that only those who have special talent among the mage that can produce the magic tool.
However, master said that the description of this book seems to be not that accurate.
“There are two type of magic tool.”
Master show me the book in his belongings while saying so.
The book t.i.tle is frankly was “How to make magic tool and it’s blueprint”.
“How to make it, that’s right. If you can grasped the basic, you can make it and use it without problem even if it was a little sloppy.”
That’s true, there is a lot of something like ordinary daily necessities in the magic tool written on the book.
The only difference is that the mana prism as big as rice grain was put in there?
“A really small mana prism.”
“Yeah. The mana prism for the trigger.”
So this can’t be loaded with many magic.
If anything, it seems to have a role such as to bypa.s.s magic drained inside the mage body to the tool.
“Eh? You mean?”
“This is a magic tool that can be used only by mage. In fact, you can invoke it without using your own magic so most mage own two or more, many mage who can make this.”
On the contrary, there rarely a mage who unable to make it, this magic tool with mana prism which used as battery to save a large amount of magic.
There many people who can’t use magic also use the versatile one.
“That’s doesn’t mean they can easily use mana prism with high-capacity. Because the tool would explode when used poorly. So that’s why a magic tool with versatile one is expensive.”
And magic in mana prism must be replenished when the magic’s run out.
Naturally, only mage can replenish the magic power.
This is why it can’t be spread easily.
“For mage use then you can also make it easily.”
“I see, so it was like that. By the way, about that sword…”
“Was it called as anti-monster use? It’s a magic tool that straightening the blade with magic attribute.”
Saying that, master put out a thin flame about one meter and a half just from the sword hilt.
“Blue flame temperature is high. Even sword of steel would melt completely when my attack is stopped.”
The blade hilt can generated subsequently from ice, wind and rock.
“There many monster that weak in some attribute. Fire blade to monster that weak to fire, water then it was ice, as for blade made of rock, the effect is enormous to monster that weak at it even if the earth attribute appearance is like that.”
After the explanation, I receive the lecture about these magic and also on how to make the mana prism installed in the magic tool only for mage, and succeeds in learning it.
Mana prism, a magic stone that come out from monster body was the raw material.
This forest absent with monster so the material was master possession.
“It surprisingly didn’t take that much time.”
“Just the basic training. You’d become just like me if you’re careless.”
In this one week, I’m convinced that master is an excellent mage.
But even for master with so much ability, would die easily when take action poorly in this world.
“In front of many force, there is the reality of personal strength also powerless.”
During magic training, I heard various stories from master.
He was an orphan but since he had talent in magic, he earn money to become an adventurer.
Brihedar margrave hired him in value of that ability, his first major work is to march to that magic forest.
“That’s the worst experiences to encounter.”
“You know a difficult word even though you still a kid. You could say that in extreme logic.”
He died soon after rising in fame, I wonder if master’s frustrated by it?
When I thought about that, master words continued like he saw through my heart.
“It would be a lie if I say that I’m not mortified. But I found a disciple to tell my own magic until I become a talking corpse.”
“Do you mean me?”
For excellent mage, they seems sensitive to the signs of other excellent mages.
Expect when you use magic, magic power that stay in mage body can’t be easily detected, it can be said as sixth senses, they can perceive it somehow.
“For your case, since there is no mage around here. But it would be okay. You have learned about my existence. Gradually after this, you could become sensitive to the sign of other mages.”
Master keeps protecting the Brihedar margrave in the magic forest from the hordes of monsters, maybe he killed several thousand monsters with magic.
But when he run out of magic, it meet with quick end in his life.
After his death, master who had regret was reborn into talking corpse.
Closely within the range where he can walk, until a mage he can tell his own magic appears.
“I never feel this happy when I felt your sign. But this happy time is almost over.”
Secret training with master had already reach two weeks beyond the one week schedule.
As to stay with master even one second longer, I prepare my lunch and went to the forest.
My family maybe thought that I am enjoying hunting and gathering.
“Finally, I’ll teach you the special magic Holy.”
“Holy” magic that had been written in the book is close to water characteristic.
It was used whenever the cleric eliminated an undead monster but a cleric who undergo a rigorous training can activate this magic even without the talent in magic.
While praying to G.o.d, you can create a holy water showing the effect like sulfuric acid for undead monster and their movement can be stopped by praying to the cross in the chest.
But it didn’t have efficacy if doesn’t train seriously, the existence of cleric itself who withstand the harsh training so much seems to be precious.
Those famous in the church, there also many Cardinal who only busied just to get ahead of compet.i.tion hardly can even make consecrated water, it has become an open secret in this world.
And there only a small number of cleric that can use magic.
They can release magic such as light rays with holy attributes to treat the person who get cursed, an injury is treated with pure recovery magic, they can defeat undead monster by temporarily attached weapon with holy attribute that belongs to the church.
The so-called holy magic like in the RPG in my previous life.
“You can definitely acquire it. And I want you to make me die peacefully as the training graduation test.”
Master unusually asked me with a serious expression.
