Training everyday has become alot more tolerable since waking up. Ever sinse the incident my stamina, agility, intelligence, even strength seems to have increased. I've been finishing my morning routine early. After my routine I've started real combat training with sir Grardor and let me tell you, he's the best swordsman on the continent for a reason. This man has no concept of holding back. Sir Grardors movements are beyond fast I can't see anything but a blur as he swings his wooden sword. Im not allowed to use the sword my father got me until he thinks im proficient enough to handle it.
At the end of our most recent session I was at least able to dodge a few of his strikes, but for some reason I feel as if there is a better way to fight. I know Sir Grardor is a master, but his teachings make me seem too stiff. Maybe its my size or this wooden sword. Either way im making slow progress on learning.
"Alright young lord that's enough." He says while pointing his sword at me while im on my butt.
"Thank god. I can't keep up with your movements sir."
"Don't worry young lord you'll improve over time. A tree doesn't grow in a day don't forget that."
Sir Grardor is actually becoming easier to talk to since we started sparring with each other. Maybe it's because he's able to get his frustrations out even just a little, who knows I guess.
Magic Training is actually going alot simpler than I ever could have imagined. I think having knowledge from my old world actually helps me out with most of the spells.
Magic training take place out in the meadow where the assassins ambushed us. The only difference now is miss Amelia puts up an illusionary barrier to keep us from attracting unwanted attention.
"Young lord I've erected the barrier I would like you to practice some attack spells now that you've got the basics of defense taken care of. You can only use two elements for now i'll let you decide which to use."
Hearing that I can finaly use attack magic gets me excited, but why only two elements? Miss Amelia knows that im a quadra elemental. Ole well I guess i'll just have to ask her later. I decide to go with earth and fire magic I've been meaning to try something on my mind anyway I don't know if it will work, but I guess this is what training is for. I summon my Magic Constellation Arrays for earth and fire and three of the constellations glow bright on each flower. I start with fire vortex. I then use earth magic to create a small gravity orb. I send the orb to the center of the flame and the vortex begins to shrink into a thin pillar.
"It's not small enough I need more gravity force it needs to be as small as it can possibly be."
Im starting to sweat idk how much magic I have or how much im even using, but this is starting to put a strain on me. Smaller, smaller, just a little more. Finally my flame vortex is the size of tall spear. Now I can start on the hard part. I need to make my flame much hotter and use the gravity field to create friction without releasing any energy from spear. I must contain it all and force it to change at an atomic level. I begin to move the flame inside the gravitational field back and forth while rotating it to create friction against the walls of the field. Since it's so tight on the inside of the field I should be able to manage something even miss Amelia never would have thought of. I force my fire to move faster and faster in short bursts back and forth and after a few minutes I saw it. I saw a spark at the tip of the flame spear. Just a little more im almost there please just a little faster.
After the loud crash of noise I open my eyes and I see the sky.
"Huh that's funny why don't I feel the grass beneath me. Wait why is the sky moving so fast."
I look down at miss Amelia getting farther and farther from me as I realize im flying through the air much faster than I should be. I see miss Amelia with a blue magic constellation summoned and I suddenly crash into a giant glob of water that cushions me and causes my clothes to be soaked.
"Young lord are you ok, what were you thinking are you stupid!" Miss Amelia screams at me.
"Uhh what do you mean, I was just doing attack magic like you said." I watch as miss Amelias fist hits me on the top of my head.
"You are an idiot!" She shouts.
"OW! Im sorry I didn't know what I was doing was wrong."
"You summoned lightning from the freaking sky how did you not know that was wrong it unnatural Kynor! There isn't a cloud in the sky. Not to mention I don't even know how you pulled that off not even high tier mages of the royal court do something like that."
"I summoned lightning?" "Dang it that wasn't what I wanted to do at all I wonder how I can refine it to be able to control it at will? Well I should at least start with creating my lightning spear that was supposed to be the goal for today, but all I managed was to create a stupid lightning rod for non existant clouds. Maybe I need to be at a higher Constellation level in order to be able to control lightning at will. Ugh.. this is harder than I thought it would be."
"Kynor... Kynoorr... Kynor!!" Miss Amelia shouted.
"Ahh! What what did I do?" "OW!" Another fist drills into my head.
"What do you mean you failed summoning lightning was a failure? What the hell was your end goal here today?"
"Oh. I was just trying to create a lightning spear that I would be able to throw or at least control to some extent."
Looking at miss Amelia her jaw drops as she decides to sit down with a confused and shocked face. "A Lightning spear he says. ha. ha. I mean yea sure seems perfectly logical. right? THE HELL IT DOES! Kynor you can't create or control lightning how could you even think this was plausible no one in their right mind would even attempt something like that!"
"Why not though? Isn't magic a source to explore and expand I thought what I was doing had already been done by someone else."
"How would you even create it in the first place you idiot."
"Well my first guess was to shrink my flame vortex to the right size using the gravity from the orb to create a small field in order to shrink it by force. Then I simply forced the hardened and compressed fire to rotate and bounce back and forth to create friction against the walls of the gravity field to create static. After that it was supposed to change into the form of a lightning because of the increased movement of the atoms in the fire, but I guess I had the wrong formula I only created a lighting strike. My goal is to control lightning at will, but I don't think im strong enough for it yet i'll have to train a little more and try again later."
I reach my hand out to help miss Amelia up from sitting down she grabs my hand reluctantly and still in shock as if I said something weird. I don't think I said anything wrong I mean im not sure what is necessarily normal in this world, but wouldn't experimentation with magic be common. Im sure there is some form of researcher in the world. Maybe it's just on the demonkin continent. Wait what if I go to the human continent? I wonder if there's is a way for me to achieve that? Ill ask miss Amelia. Turning around to see miss Amelia she still has a shocked expression like she can't believe what I was saying. Maybe... Ill ask her tomorrow. I guess i'll give her a break for today.
"Miss Amelia is it ok if we continue practice? I hope I didn't make it to where you don't want to train me anymore." "OW!"
As another hand hits me from the back of my head "Of course we're still gonna train you idiot. Just because you wanna try stupid things that put your life at risk doesn't mean your ready to take on the world." This kid is gonna be the death of me I swear.
After about a month of training by myself with sir Grardor and miss Amelia, princess Nyra finally gets to join in. Sir grardor is much nicer to her than he was to me when I first started. I guess girls really have it easy in this world.
"Ok kids it's time to see what your both made of you two will spar with each other today. don't worry you have wooden swords so go all out with whatever you tactics you can think of. Kynor no magic. Nyra just started mage training with miss Amelia so it would put her at an unfair advantage."
"Kynor how about we make a bet."
"Umm ok what do you have in mind."
"If I win I don't have to be so formal with you anymore and I get to give you nickname. If you win I'll agree right now to marry you in the future."
I feel my smile reach all across my face. "Deal. Ill make sure you we end up together."
"Wha.. I mean ok fine if you say so." She says with flushed cheeks.
I almost didn't see Nyra as she burst forward in a flash of speed. She stays low to the ground it almost seems like shes floating from her burst of speed. I bring my sword straight down in a way that i've practiced over a thousand times. She brings her sword up from her hip and it connects with mine and sends it straight to air back to where I initially began my swing. I watch as she puts her leg in front her causing her to stop almost immediatly as she plants it firmly in the dirt. She rotates her body to bring her sword swing to my right side. I immediatly bring my sword down to stop her strike, but I wasn't ready for the impact. When our swords meet my entire arm goes numb and I drop my sword on the ground. I see her smile as if she had already attained victory, but I drop my entire body to the ground landing on my back. I roll out of the way and pick my sword up with my left hand. Before I can get off the ground however Nyra kicks me in the gut which send me flying farther away. I land with a somersault and stand up to right myself grabbing my gut which I know is bruised. Nyra doesn't give me anytime catch my breath I look up see her swinging her sword down. I put my sword up, but it was too late. She wacks my sword out of the way and knocks me back. She mounts the top of me and points her sword in my face.
"I think it's my win don't you think." She says while grinning ear to ear.
"Yea yea I guess you're the winner. You've definetly been training for much longer than I have, but umm... Nyra? Can you.. maybe move...?"
She looks down realizes where she's at and her face begins to turn a crimson red.
"Nory how could point that out how dare you!!" She screams.
Well if there's anything I know from this situation I know what comes next. I look up to see her hand raised high above her head. Yup. This is gonna hurt worse than the kick in the gut. Wait. Nory? Did she already know she was going win and have this planned? Girls are so hard to deal with.
Being born in another world would be a dream to most. All the stories and heroic deeds that one could find themselves exploring is a most riveting experience. While the tales and exploits are vast they only capture one side of story. With his memories intact and being born in a vastly new and different world from once he came, Kynor Tetsia finds himself not only living a tale that differs from most of the stories he watched or read, but on the completely opposite end of those said stories as well. Born as the heir to the Demon Lords throne how will kynor cope with a perspective he knows nothing about.
