A Silver Sage In His Saga Days
I Don\'t Want ...To Loose You Too
. . . . .
It was training day for Lisa and Pochie,normally Sean would train Lisa in both martial arts and swordsmanship,this was done in preparation of enrolling her into Ester Academy,it was an academy where young boys and girls who wishes to learn the way of the blade attends,I wasn that interested in it.
What caught my eye was what Pochie was doing,she seemed to be trying to increase the tier of her spells. Tiers of spells are like grades given to a particular spell one casts,its like a level – ranking with first tier being the lowest ranking and seventh….the highest ranking,if ones spell is at the second tier, two magic circles will be transcribed, if it is at the third tier, three magic circles would be transcribed.
And from the looks of it, it seemed her spells were mostly at the first or second tier.
After several swinging of wooden swords and casting of spells, the two finally called it a day and decided to rest.
I then decide to read one of the books I borrowed from the library, it was titled ”Manipulation Of Mana ”, it talked about how mana is not only meant to produce elemental attributes but also how mana when applied or implanted around or into substances enables such substance to be manipulated. It even gave an example of when mana is used to create water and when it is used to manipulate natural water. Most people or mage won find liking to this but I did, I wanted to try something out, I practiced till I ran out of MP(the mana within living things), I had finally created a form of spell.
The next day, Sean was called to the adventurer guild, it seemed there was high price quest with a low rank requirement, it was a quest to slay the goblins in the forest close to a village, it seemed like an easy quest so he accepted it.
I was asked to buy ingredients for todays dinner together with Lisa and Pochie but I couldn wait to try out my new mana technique.
I got home early and did all my chores, I waited patiently for Sean to return while I watched Pochie and Lisa train some more,I got tired of waiting and went in to have a good rest before I knew it, I had already slept off.
Later on, I woke up with a sudden shock,it was late in the evening and Sean still hadn come back, I wasn worried about that what I was worried about was the terrible dream I had, it was about Sean.
I couldn stop thinking about the nightmare,every adventurer who went on the mission to the forest were all killed, of course, goblins were weak compared to them but there was another threat,a powerful creature I recognised well, it was a … ”horned beast ”.
Normally,monsters that possesses animal structures and attributes may possess horns and tails but the horned beast had no animal traits what so ever, they were simply covered in black rough scales and had a human figure, they looked like shadows with human shape, it was simply a ”demon ”.
I couldn sleep throughout the night, what if the dream was real?,was it fake?, why did I have i such a dream?, was Sean dead?, all this thought flowed throughout my mind. I was scared, I didn want to loose any part of my family again, ” No, No ….. ”,I shouted when I felt warm hands crossed along my shoulders, a voice then whispered to me ”If you had a second chance, what will you do? ”, It was my mothers voice, I thought I was hallucinating or hearing things but I was sure of one thing, ”If I had a second chance,Ill protect my family,no matter what!! ”, June said to himself.
Pochie was eavesdropping from the other side of the door,she then said to Lisa who was wondering why she was placing her ears on Junes room door.
”I think brother June has gone mad, hes talking to himself ”.
Lisa couldn help but to worry, ” I hope hes alright ”, she murmured to herself.
