Before the door, I ran my eyes around to see anything that could draw in my attention for the moment, but gave up on it, after looking around.
It seemed like Bright was not contented with the silence from within the Acorn Master's office, so he made to knock on the door, for a second time. And just as he was about to do so, a young-looking man opened the door with a frown, as his head corked out.
This young man seemed to be around my age. But unlike any other boy from back home, this one had horns on his head like some kind of. . . ram.
“Young master, Jaiden. We seek an audience with the your father.”
Furrowing his eyebrows, Jaiden declared, after observing us both, “The Acorn Master is busy right now, and wishes no one disturbs him!”
Bright's eyes widened. From the look of things, he really revered this arrogant fellow.
So instead of draggin
“I am Kira, Guardian of the secrets of the Royal Euphenic Blood.” I heard the same feminine voice I'd heard before, when I began visualising this vision in my subconsciousness. Turning around, my gaze fell on a woman. She had a splendid dress on, and there were lots of red flowers tucked into her hair. She smiled at me, revealing a pair of dimples on both cheeks. She seemed to be in her late forties or early fifties. “Where am I?” I asked, looking about myself at the strange realm before my eyes. “What is this place and who are you?” Smiling, Kira said, “This is the Channel of Ancient Reality which only a few gifted ones are privileged to see.” “Channel of Ancient Reality?” I was taken aback. “What does that mean?” “The Channel of Ancient Reality is a realm which has the ability to link one to events of long ago. These knowledge can faci
“Soul Drenching Squirrels?” I frowned, taken aback. Back then when I'd encountered the Acorn Master, he had mentioned something about those beasts, but of course, not many details. Could those really be what he was speaking about? My attention was redirected to those five, giant squirrels descending from the mountains towards the men. That was not really what made me entirely surprised. What did, was the mighty bellow that came from the leading animal, causing the one-third remainder of the hundred men to be dispelled from the beguilement which Kira had made on them through the use of Animal and Spirit Brotherly Illusion. The remaining few of the hundred, on realising that they had been beguiled into killing one another, their eyes were filled with fury. One of the survivals was Derizante, he was entirely abashed by the situation, as he'd boasted indifference, previously, at Kira's threat. Apart
The force made from both parties running into each other made everywhere inconspicuous by the after-effects, as though a giant tsunami had just taken place. Teacher Kira's eyes lit up all of a sudden. As if she'd just realised something, she said in a hurried voice, “Quick, look beneath this and give me a full detail of what's actually happening there?” “Huhn?” I stared at my teacher as though I was looking at a fool. She knew clearly well that the both of us could not tell what went on due to the inconspicuousness made from both parties running into each other, and their overwhelming auras making an obscure sight, so how could I possibly see beyond the denseness? “There's no time to explain, you're a possessor of the Royal Spirit Bloodline, you should be able to separate illusions from reality... Just listen, stop the face you're making. Looking intently, try to awaken your bloodline. That force that driv
The air was tense. Previously, it was only because I'd actually activated my “Eye of Insight” (the name I shall now call my new ability, after the breakthrough) that I was able to see how Kira had pulled her spirit out of her body. Despite the ravenous, tiger-like grandeur that her spirit took, a spirit was only a spirit — it carried no definite shape. An analysis of how Kira's spirit looked like is a lantern genie. Back in the realistic earth, where I came from, there was this movie called “Aladdin”. He had this blue genie that took the form of a human from head to stomach, but below that was just a free, waggling, intangibility that could be compared to the drafting smoke. That was exactly the form Kira's spirit took, save for being colourless. Despite having Eye of Insight, I could still see through her, as though she were only just... transparent. ‘Boom!’
After the passing of four more hours, I'd successfully absorbed the knowledge of every single book about beast taming, in the Beast Hall's Book Collection Vault. The fours hours I'd spent in the library, plus the one-second (two hours) in the Channel of Ancient Reality should have left me extremely tired. However, that was not the case. Instead of being weighed down by fatigue, my mind and physical body had rather been further refreshened. ‘Accepting the Acorn Master's invitation to the Beast Hall was not such a bad idea, after all,’ I told myself, after recounting all the events I'd experience. In truth, with my standing right now, I can easily brag to be more knowledgeable in the field of anything concerning beasts, and beast taming. One must know that, those books in this Book Collection Vault spanned across a hundred thousand, by estimation. It was true that humans had the ability to take in lots of knowledge without ge
“Knowledge in The Way of Savage Beasts?” I asked, feeling the agitation rising inside of me. One must understand that after utilising my Fingers of Knowledge in acquiring the knowledge of every single book currently in the Book Collection Vault, I wouldn't pale much among top-notch geniuses in the Way of Savage Beasts, yet this princess just had to pick that challenge against me. “Un,” nodded she. “Since you've already agreed to the challenge, there's no need for you to think of redrawing, it's impossible... unless you intend to apologise to all three of us princesses, right here, right now—” “That won't be necessary, let's get on with it,” I said with a smirk on my face. She probably took my astonishment for frustration, but I couldn't be bothered to explain myself. “Humph,” she sneered at me, before looking at the crowd and saying, “As we all know, Knowledge in the Way of Savage Beasts is the criteria of passing the 1-star Beast Taming examinat
I looked at the door and realised that the beaming, red light from the door had moved from the first circle to the middle one. From what the person in the crowd had pointed at, it only comes to say that that signifies the second stage. I mouthed the number on the door, “Nineteen.” “It seems like Princess Lu Peng has begun the stage of beast identification!” someone else screamed in my ears. I turned to look at the person in disgust. It was Princess Feng Wu. She snorted, seeing my raised nose and corked brow. Just then, the door of the Beast Tamers Examination Hall was pushed open, recklessly. ‘Jiya!’ I turned around like everyone else. “Where's my girlfriend?” A young man's voice sounded behind me. Turning around, I saw a pair of searching eyes, and a pair of horns poking into the air over his head. “It's Young Master Jaiden!” someone whispered in suppressed agitation amongst t
Going through the same procedure as Lu Peng, I was able to reactivate the door of the examination room, and as I stepped in, I felt as though I'd been teleported to a different world entirely. About me was a garden with lots of peculiar flowers with a brushing smell of vitality from it. Looking around me, I realised that there were no houses or buildings whatsoever. The only thing that stood was a grand wall designed with all types of carvings. My eyes lit up, immediately. “So this is the Wall of Puzzlement!” It had a nourishing aura coming from it that made one engulfed in a feeling of warmth. I was able to quickly put aside all the previous activities that replayed in my mind. Stepping forward, I observed the wall, and read out the first line of words on it. “In a world of distrust, who is your closest kin?” I shook my head in disbelief. Just what kind o
