Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! Chapter 7
Aspire to became a mage
“Alright, let’s start practising magic.”
I returned to the study room. Firstly, I pulled out a book called “Introduction to Beginner’s Cla.s.s Magic” and put it in front of me along with the magic crystal ball which was carelessly neglected, judging from the amount of dust on it.
It seems that no one in this family can use magic judging from the treatment of this crystal ball.
There must be no one in our territory that can use it either.
It is one person in several thousand after all.
“Let see…first, hold up both hands and cover the crystal ball.”
When I do it as written in the books, the crystal ball started to give off a dim rainbow coloured light.
“It’ll give off a rainbow light but don’t be surprised since everyone can do it. Next is to absorb the rainbow light to your palm and imagine an image of it circulating inside your body.”
And when I do it as written in the book, the rainbow light disappears from the crystal ball and it feels like my body gradually becomes hot.
“The fact that the rainbow light disappears from the crystal ball and the pract.i.tioner’s body starts to feel hot indicates that the person has magical talent. However, there are big differences in the scale of talent, so don’t expect too much. Next is training to circulate the magic in your body and it would be preferable if you execute it while slowly counting to 100, every day.”
According to what was written in the book, magic in the human body is circulated through one particular set of arteries known as the magic path and is stored in an organ called magic bag.
But it is a fact that these magical organs could not be found even if one were to dissect a human being.
According to a theory, it is hypothesised that the arteries and the magic bag exist in the same positions as other organs but in a different dimension. There is no proof of this but it was written as fact in the book.
“Circulate the magical power, magical power would increases as you expand your magical pathways. As you consciously feed magical power to the magic bag, the magic bag will expand and likewise increase your magical capacity.”
The magic bag feels like the internal organs that the monsters had in Ultraman, which I saw in my childhood. It seems one belly does not bulge out even if one practice expanding magic.
In this kind of story, the next step by default would be to use magic in large quant.i.ties to increase magical capacity.
After which, one is to train in the accuracy and the power output of their magic, which also helps in further increasing one’s magical capacity.
“However, there is a limit in every human. It is almost certain the growth limit of your magic capacity is decided if you do not feel your magic increasing within three consecutive days. After which, try harder in improving your magical power and accuracy, and increasing the types of magic you can use.”
I see, the research on this subject has advanced so far, the result was announced without any regret in the outcome.
The method of learning has been studied thoroughly but the humans that can use it are extremely few.
But this is really convenient; there is still of shortage of talent even though the demand has increased.
“In other words, the road to independence becomes faster if one can use magic.”
The next thing to do is to learn beginner’s cla.s.s magic.
Since it was just beginner’s cla.s.s, the thing involved was only making fire on your fingertips to the strength of a matchstick or light; filling a bucket worth of water; creating a small whirlwind on the palms of your hand; changing the soil outside into a sharp shard and hitting a board set up as a target.
It was written in the book to keep repeating magic at this level.
By now, I should be able to immediately conjure the image of beginner’s cla.s.s magic in my head.
According to the book, it does not seem necessary to chant or write magic formations for small magical arts.
Some people do mutter or shout out a word or cry that he/she thought about, or even add an action such as swinging the staff in a particular motion.
It seems if such a method helps that person increase his accuracy or power, it deemed appropriate for that person. Though there seems to be people like me who can invoke magic without chanting by just imagining the spell.
“In a nutsh.e.l.l, people with talent can do it at once, but it was impossible for those with no talent no matter how much effort he or she puts into it.”That is a pretty cruel description written in the book.
“Go for the intermediate edition of this book if you think that you did not have much difficulty learning this after a week.”
Since it was written so, I try to flip through the intermediate book as to prepare for the next lesson.
The contents in intermediate magic included such things as fire arrow, ice arrow, making a rock shard and skewering the enemy from far-away, killing the enemy a small wind blades and simple body enhancements.
“Since I was left alone in the house anyway, I will work hard practising magic every day.”
After one week, I have trained my magic as it was written in the book but I never heard anyone in the house ask me if I can use magic.
I think it is probably because having magical talent was the same as. .h.i.tting the lottery.
They may not have expected anything at all since I was considered to be just a useless kid.
