Chapter 14: White Tiger Tower Lord Went Mad Because Of Illness!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
According to the system’s description, the blood of the violet siren was an extremely overbearing healing medicine!
Although it did not reach the level of growing flesh and bones of a dead person, it could immediately recover a serious injury.
If one were seriously injured during a battle, they could directly consume it and instantly recover.
Unfortunately, the blood of violet siren that the system had given him was too little. He only had three drops.
“Three drops then. Perhaps I’ll really be able to use it one day.”
Lin Lei was prepared to continue training, but a figure slowly walked towards the confinement room at this moment.
Lin Lei saw Hugh James from afar, and so he called out.
After James came closer, he smiled as he spoke to Lin Lei, “Lin Lei, long time no see. How have you been?”
Lin Lei nodded.
“Thank you, Tower Lord, for your concern. I’m fine.”
James scanned Lin Lei up and down, then patted Lin Lei on the shoulder.
“It seems as though I haven’t checked your cultivation level in a very long time. Try using a Li Fire spell and see if you’ve made any progress in the past half year.”
Lin Lei had expected that such a day would come long ago.
Although he had never truly learned any of the spells of Li Fire Sect, Lin Lei had the mageforce affinity of a God-blessing level. During the disciple competition, he was able to casually perform them after using the inspection of eyes to observe.
Not only that, Lin Lei was able to learn all sorts of obscure and difficult-to-understand mystic abilities with a single glance!
Lin Lei paused for a moment, then the right hand staff appeared in his hand.
A dazzling flame instantly rose into the air.
At the same time, Lin Lei used the concealment technique to transform his cultivation level into that of a enchanter apprentice of the fourth rank.
In Lin Lei’s opinion, he had trained in the solitary confinement room for nearly a year. It was natural for him to advance a level.
But Lin Lei hadn’t expected that after unleashing a Li Fire spell, Hugh James would be full of praise. He patted Lin Lei’s shoulder repeatedly.
“Not bad. Not bad at all!”
“Although your magic is ordinary, the flow of your mageforce is extremely smooth. In fact, it can even be said to be perfect!”
“Your mageforce is a bit weak, but your fundamentals can be said to be extremely solid! Even if the holy maiden were here, she probably wouldn’t be able to find any flaws in your hands. She would only use her cultivation to crush you.”
“Lin Lei, your power has already broken through to the world ? That’s fine, that’s fine. In less than a year, you’ve advanced to the fourth rank.”
“If this continues, you’ll definitely be able to train to the ninth rank before the age of thirty. After that, you might even break through to become a enchanter!”
Hugh James was extremely satisfied, his eyes narrowing with laughter.
Lin Lei’s lips couldn’t help but twitched slightly.
He had already pretended to be such a weakling, but James still had such a big reaction!?
Just how bad was his innate talent? He was so happy even though he had only improved by a tiny bit.
Lin Lei slowly withdrew the flames, then said to James.
“Tower Lord, I’ve finished my demonstration.”
“Very good. It seems as though you haven’t given up on training during your one year in the solitary confinement room. In fact, you’ve worked even harder, and your results have been quite remarkable. I will be able to rest at ease then,” Hugh James said.
“I’ve some training resources, potions, and magecores with me. If you need them, I’ll have Alice bring them over tomorrow.”
Lin Lei shook his head, “Tower Lord, I don’t need them. I’m just an apprentice. To put it bluntly, I’m just laying foundation. These things aren’t of any benefit to me at all. In fact, they would spoil my progress. If my foundation isn’t good enough, how can I continue to train in the future?”
In truth, Lin Lei didn’t feel this way. For him, potions that could support the training of enchanter apprentices were of little use. Even if Lin Lei really did use them, it would just be a waste.
But when James heard these words, he felt even more satisfied with Lin Lei.
“Lin Lei, you are actually so sensible. From what I see, you have truly grown a lot! If Alice was half as sensible as you, then I would be at ease!”
Lin Lei’s head hurt. Nothing he said was right. He might as well not say anything at all.
The two chatted for a bit more, and then Hugh James said seriously, “Enough. I won’t talk to you anymore, Lin Lei.”
“You know that I was once injured. The situation is getting worse and worse. I’m afraid I won’t be able to make it after some time.”
“In the coming days, I’ll visit you often. If you have any questions regarding magic, you can ask me. Otherwise, no one will be able to take care of you after I leave.”
Although in his heart, Lin Lei didn’t want James to keep coming over to disturb his training, James’s words were spoken from the bottom of his heart. Right now, he was on the verge of death, and yet he was still thinking about him. How could Lin Lei not be moved?
Lin Lei rose to his feet, then bowed deeply to Hugh James.
“In the future, I hope Tower Lord will take good care of me.”
“Hehehe, you’ve been with me for so many years. Why are you still so courteous?”
“Since that’s the case, I won’t disturb you from training. I still have some matters to attend to. I’m going to leave now.”
After speaking, Hugh James sat down in his wheelchair, slowly leaving the confinement room.
Lin Lei looked at the blood of the violet siren in his hands, then shook his head helplessly.
Although the blood of violet siren could cure James of his illness, it couldn’t extend his lifespan. When the time came for him to leave, James would die as well.
However, it might treat James’s body and allow him to live for some more days.
But that sort of insane pain in him wouldn’t disappear. It would continue to accompany James.
Lin Lei didn’t want to see the once awe-inspiring lord of the White Tiger Tower went crazy due to pain.
Lin Lei stared at the blood of violet siren in his hands. For a moment, he wasn’t able to make any decision at all.
Time flashed by, and snow began to fall from the skies.
Winter had arrived!
Linley disappeared from the confinement room. In the next moment, he appeared at the top of the White Tiger Tower. He allowed the heavy snow to fall on him. He was like a ronin.
Below the tower, a squad slowly departed from the main gate of Li Fire Sect.
These were the core disciples of Li Fire Sect who were heading to the Enchanters Convention. The patriarch of the Li Fire Sect, Roderick, was personally leading the squad.
