I Fell into the Game with Instant Kill - Chapter 72.2
Chapter 72.2: Short Break (2)
I watched the scene blankly, unsure of what was happening.
The only thing I could feel was that the flow of magic flowing inside Rigon’s body had changed slightly.
After a while, Rigon opened his eyes with a much more refreshed face than before, and Asher blankly removed her hand from his back.
“How is it?”
I was curious about the reason for that reaction, so I asked quietly.
She murmured as she looked at Rigon, who was stretching with a fresh face, as if she was looking at a monster.
“···Unbelievable affinity. No matter how much magic enters his body, he could freely manipulate it as if it was his own…”
I looked at Rigon, who was looking this way with a puzzled face
Even if I didn’t quite understand what Asher was saying, it’s obvious that he possessed an incredible talent if he surprised her this much.
I guess he’s not a normal genius either.
If he developed properly, he might be of great help later, right?
There wasn’t much time left until the main story, so if he grew in an explosive manner, it would be great.
It was time to go to the gym and tell Asher to continue fully instructing the siblings.
The butler, who showed up, reported.
“The Second Lord has visited the castle.”
Second Lord? Suddenly?
I left the three of them alone and went downstairs.
After entering the castle’s hall, I saw the Thunder Lord, who had a rather haggard look. Like someone who hadn’t slept for a few days.
“What’s the matter?”
She stared at me quietly and then opened her mouth.
“Let’s talk in a quiet place.”
“Tell me what business you have by coming here.”
“I came here to talk about the last duel.”
I could feel the suppressed anger in her trembling voice.
I also thought it was because of that.
I walked to my room and sat down opposite the Thunder Lord.
She could hardly speak.
She was just staring at me with ferocious eyes and showing only one-sided hostility.
In the silence that had settled down for a long time, I was tired of waiting, so I spoke up first.
“It must have been related to your spirit.”
She bit her lower lip and then opened her mouth.
“What the hell have you done? Why have I completely lost my connection with my spirit? No, I can’t even feel its presence at all!”
I answered briefly.
“That’s because it’s gone.”
“The Thunder Spirit Laxia that you have has completely disappeared. Since it no longer exists in the world, you can’t feel its presence.”
I had nothing to hide, so I told the truth to her face.
She looked at me blankly, with a face in complete shock.
I thought while waiting for her to come to her senses.
Spirit art, a racial trait of elves.
Spirits were natural beings completely separate from elves.
However, only elves could contract with spirits and borrow their powers, so it was called the racial trait of elves.
Elves, who were born with a strong affinity for spirits, could make contracts with many strong spirits.
In a word, spirit art was a realm of talent that must be innate.
And Thunder Lord was one of the most powerfully blessed elves on this continent.
That’s why she could make a contract with a great spirit as strong as Laxia, and she could also become a Lord of Calderic.
But now that great spirit is gone.
She lost her strongest power in one day.
I looked at her level once more and felt a little somber.
With a pale, weary face, she soon stuttered;
“It- it no longer exists? Laxia…?”
“That’s because I destroyed it.”
A look of distrust and deep despair filled her face.
“Ooh, don’t be ridiculous. Don’t be funny. How can Laxia suddenly be extinct…?”
To her, who was muttering in denial of reality, I stopped her and said.
“There is no way to revive it. Throw away the regrets and give up neatly.”
What followed was anger.
The Thunder Lord looked at me as if to kill me with tears in her reddened eyes. I was a little baffled.
Is she going to cry?
She immediately got up from her seat.
“Seventh Lord, I will kill you. I will truly kill you someday.”
“I will definitely make you pay for this!”
Then she spun around and walked towards the door.
I looked at her back and thought.
Our relationship wasn’t a good relationship from the beginning, but somehow it seemed like I had extinguished any possibility of reconciliation.
…Then should I let it be?
I also wanted to maintain a somewhat okay relationship with the other Lords if possible.
However, if there was a monarch who was irretrievably estranged, wouldn’t it be better to have a clear advantage? So that it wouldn’t become an obstacle in the future.
And to be honest, I got annoyed because she started the fight first and was now acting like this, so I opened my mouth.
“The Overlord and other Lords don’t know this yet.”
The Thunder Lord stopped at my words.
“I think you lost a lot of power after losing Laxia. If the Overlord knew about it, would you still be able to maintain your position?”
She turned her head slowly, and her face was much paler than before.
There was no way she couldn’t understand that it was a threat.
Her face was filled with a mixture of shame, anger, and all kinds of emotions.
I said calmly.
“If you don’t mind losing all your other spirits, you can attack.”
Her whole body trembled. She slowly forced herself to calm down.
I pointed to the opposite of where I was sitting.
“Come back and sit down.”
