Reincarnation Genius Sword Master - Episode 2
There are six lights and five darknesses on the continent.
The six powers that stood tall on the continent as brilliant suns were called the Six Emperors, and those who dwell in the shadows and spread evil and fear were called Oma.
One of the six emperors and the reigning ruler in the north was the Sieghardt family.
Raon made eye contact with Sieghart’s owner and opened his mouth round.
‘Did it go well…? ?’
Sieghart is a place that is not inferior in any way to the Robert family, who took full advantage of him in his previous life and then killed him.
If I increase my strength here, the time for revenge may come much sooner.
“Like my father and I, this child has blonde hair and red eyes.”
As he was thinking about how to move forward, Sylvia smiled softly and stroked his head.
“… … .”
Glenn lifted his body while maintaining a dizzying sense of intimidation.
Raon trembled. This is because the moment he was hugged by Glenn, a warm and soft energy came through his wrist.
I let out an involuntary moan as I felt an aura for the first time in a long time.
‘What kind of auror are you…? .’
Glenn’s Auror wasn’t just warm. She had tremendous purity, as if she had taken the mana from nature.
‘I’m warming you up.’
After my reincarnation, I felt very cold. At first, I thought it was because I had the body of a child, but there was a big problem with my constitution.
But when I received Glenn’s aura, my whole body felt warm, as if sunlight had entered my veins.
Glenn used his auror to examine every inch of Raon’s body and then handed it back to Sylvia.
Raon narrowed his eyes. There was no way that a warrior of Glenn’s size would not know that something was wrong with his body, but his expression did not change.
I couldn’t understand how my grandson could look like that even though I knew he wasn’t normal.
“This child’s name will be Raon.”
“Raon? Ah, father. The meaning of the name Raon is… .”
Sylvia’s eyebrows sank deeply.
“It’s exactly what it means. Quiet as a shadow. It means to live as if it exists or not.”
Unlike when he used the Auror gently, a chill bloomed in Glenn’s voice.
Is this fate?
It is the same name as in my previous life and its meaning is also the same. It was so absurd that I burst out laughing.
I knew Glenn was a cold-hearted person, but I didn’t know that he wouldn’t even care about his sick grandchild.
Glenn shook off his dark red coat and turned around, as if he didn’t want to be here anymore.
“Wait! father! At least another name… .”
Sylvia followed Raon while holding her, but Glenn did not turn around. She just left her mansion.
It wasn’t a father-daughter relationship, but it seemed like you could trust them even if they were strangers.
Raon’s lips trembled. He wanted to remain quiet, but the cool wind coming from outside made him moan involuntarily.
Sylvia hugged Raon and buried her face in his body. It looked like he was barely holding back his tears.
‘There is something. I’m so sleepy I can’t think.’
Raon slowly closed his eyes, feeling the cold wind passing through his body and Sylvia’s warmth at the same time.
‘The child’s body is really uncomfortable… .’
* * *
The time when the moon rises in the center of the sky.
Raon, who was lying in the baby bed, slowly opened his eyes.
I turned my head to the side. Sylvia was asleep in the bed right next to her.
Since he didn’t wake up when I knocked on the bed, he seemed to be sleeping properly.
I sighed softly.
The past 100 days have been a very frustrating time.
I fell asleep endlessly, and when I woke up, I couldn’t use my mana or practice because I was with Sylvia.
I couldn’t do anything because even a light touch during the practice could cause problems, but finally the opportunity came.
On the advice of the head maid, Helen, from today onwards we will sleep separately in a warm baby bed.
Even though she was right next to him, there was no way Sylvia would wake up at this time. It is the perfect time to start practicing.
‘shall we start.’
Raon exhaled slowly.
‘Creating the Ring of Fire.’
The continent’s practice method takes in natural mana through breathing and builds up aura in the Danjeon.
However, the ‘Ring of Fire’ practice that I gained through experience in my previous life was different.
Like a wizard making a circle, a round ring is created around the heart to grow physical strength and physical strength, and increase mental power and mana sensitivity.
In other words, the ring of fire was a practice that could not create an auror, but allowed the body and mind to grow and provide the most perfect conditions to become a warrior.
‘That’s not the only advantage.’
The Ring of Fire is a practice that follows the flow of nature. No matter how high a martial artist he is, he cannot know that he has created a ring of fire.
In fact, even Derus Robert, who was said to be the strongest swordsman on the continent, did not know that Raon had mastered the Ring of Fire.
If you use the ring of fire to grow your body and mind, and learn the Sieghart family’s swordsmanship, taking revenge on Derus Robert is not just a dream.
However, there was a very big problem with Raon’s body.
The mana circuit through which mana flowed, like a blood vessel, was blocked by extreme cold.
I first heard about this not long ago.
I pretended to sleep and used my mana for a moment, but I was so startled by the cold that was blocking the mana circuit that I almost screamed.
Raon took a deep breath until his lungs dried up and felt the mana spreading in the air.
‘They’re falling apart.’
Perhaps my basic mana sensitivity wasn’t that great, but unlike my previous life, I couldn’t feel the mana very well.
After spending a considerable amount of time, I managed to receive the mana and sink it into the mana circuit.
Raon tried to start creating a ring of fire with the mana he had absorbed, but stopped abruptly.
‘It didn’t feel wrong after all.’
About half of the mana circuit near the shoulder was blocked by the cool cold.
‘This makes me sleepy and I can’t help but feel cold.’
The reason I slept for over 20 hours and felt extremely cold was because of this cold.
I drained my mana and looked over my entire body. There were a total of nine mana circuits blocked by the cold.
‘It’s serious… .’
Unlike adults, a baby’s mana circuit is wide open. In that state, more than half of the cold has been filled, so as you get older, the entire mana circuit may become clogged with cold.
At that time, you will experience cold and pain that cannot be compared to now, or in extreme cases, you will die.
Until then, I had to somehow erase this coldness.
‘I need to use the ring of fire and break through the coldness of the mana circuit.’
The formation of the Ring of Fire will be delayed for a long time, but living is the priority for now.
Raon slowly took a breath and accepted the mana. He cut the absorbed mana thinly and sharply like an awl and pierced the cold air blocking the mana circuit.
As if poking a frozen waterfall with a fork, a small chill fell away.
‘for a moment. ‘Isn’t it possible to use this cold energy?’
It was possible to emit cold air like this, but the purity of the cold air was a waste.
Raon guided the fallen cold energy along with the flow of the ring of fire along with natural mana.
Natural mana and the cold air that was blocking the mana circuit came together and began to circulate throughout the entire body’s mana circuit.
Raon clenched his fists. Although it was much slower than in my previous life, I was able to use mana according to the flow of the ring of fire without any major problems.
I felt the cold that came with Mana descending on my body.
‘It’s thanks to the child’s body.’
If it weren’t for the child’s mana circuit being wide open, circulation itself wouldn’t have been possible due to the cold, but it was fortunate.
‘to the next… uh? already?’
After using a little bit of brainpower and strength, I started to feel sleepy. Against my will, my eyelids lowered like curtains.
Raon let out a groan of exasperation and closed his eyes.
As he fell asleep and the moon in the sky moved as fast as three fingers, a human figure appeared in front of the door.
The person who came in without even opening the door was Sieghardt’s matriarch Glenn.
“… … .”
Glenn looked at Raon who was sleeping and stretched out his hand. A light like a sunset bloomed from his grasp.
Raon’s forehead, which had been frowning due to the coldness of the mana circuit, smoothed out like velvet.
* * *
Raon sighed softly.
‘As expected, it’s not easy.’
Since my waking hours were short and most of the time I was with other people, I didn’t have time to create a ring of fire.
However, surprisingly, the results were not bad considering the practice time was only one or two hours and the progress was delayed due to the cold. As if someone was helping me.
“Raon. “Shall we move a little more today?”
Sylvia bent down and shook the rattle. Since she kept responding, I think she thought she liked the rattle.
‘It’s hard to play with.’
To be honest, playing with Silviana and the maids was more difficult than enduring the cold.
Since the mind of an adult has entered a child’s body, it cannot be helped.
This was when Raon nodded and tried to crawl towards Sylvia.
The door opened softly, and an unknown white-haired old man came in. He wore old clothes that looked like straw, but his eyes were as clear as a lake.
Sylvia smiled brightly as if she knew the old man and ran to the door.
“It’s been a while.”
“Oh, no. Saint… .”
Raon was startled and started babbling without realizing it. When I saw the title of saint and the clothes that a beggar would wear, I knew who the old man was.
‘Saint of rags!’
Saint Pedro of Rags is one of the most famous healers on the continent.
Although his divine power and medical skills were all up to heaven, he had wanderlust and was unable to see even if he wanted to.
“What is a saint? “Call me uncle like you used to.”
Pedric chuckled and approached the bed where Raon was lying.
“I heard that you gave birth to a child, so I stopped by in passing. “Is it this kid?”
“Ohh! Blonde hair and red eyes? “Isn’t this the first time since you?”
“that’s right. “It’s pretty, right?”
Sylvia smiled brightly as she stroked Raon’s head.
“It is exactly what it says. He’s not even a year old and he looks pretty. “He’s nothing like a fierce guy like Glenn.”
Pedric chuckled and waved his finger in front of Raon.
“What’s your name?”
“It’s Raon… .”
He frowned when he heard the name Raon.
“You sure don’t mean it’s a shadow?”
“That’s right … .”
“What on earth is Glenn thinking, naming his child Shadow?”
Pedric called Glenn, the head of Sieghardt’s family, his name in a friendly manner, like a friend.
‘The rumor that Glenn Sieghardt and the Saint in Rags were friends was true.’
Raon quenched his appetite while looking at Pedric’s broom-like head.
Because he lived as an assassin, he had a lot of information about the world situation.
It appears that the information that Glenn Sieghardt and the Saint of Rags had a close relationship was true.
“Raon. “This old man wants to see me for a moment.”
Pedric gently massaged his shoulders, forearms, legs, and chest.
He chewed his lips with a serious expression and finally revealed a white light. When I bathed in that light, a warm energy filled my whole body, as if I had entered a hot spring.
Pedric let out a low sigh and turned around.
“How about this? Compared to other children, he grows slower and gets cold a lot… .”
Silvia approached Pedric with her hands clasped together.
“It’s a curse of extreme cold.”
“Um, a curse? “What is that all of a sudden!”
“The Curse of Cold is not a real curse. “It’s a constitution where extreme cold blocks the mana circuit.”
“It’s a constitution that rarely appears in girls. “This is my first time seeing a boy born with the curse of extreme cold.”
He looked over Raon’s body with strange eyes.
“Right now, the mana circuit is open, so there won’t be any major problems, but after the age of four, when the mana circuit begins to close, you will feel severe cold and pain.”
“Well, that…” .”
Sylvia chewed her lips in anxiety.
‘I can fix it on my own, so don’t worry.’
Raon gently shook his head.
It may take a little longer, but you can remove the cold by using the ring of fire. There was no particular need for treatment.
“There are a total of nine lumps of cold air blocking this child’s mana circuit. This is a number I have never seen even in the girls I treated. Plus, the coldness in each one is strong, so there’s a chance you could become an idiot if you try to force it through.”
“Chi, how to treat it!”
Silvia tugged on Pedric’s sleeve with a look on her face that made her look like she was going to collapse at any moment.
“Dilute the fire elemental elixir and drink it like water once a day, and let it be exposed to sunlight for two hours starting at noon when the sun is at its highest.”
“Can I get better if I do that?”
“As I said, this isn’t a disease, it’s a constitution. If you do as I say, at least you won’t return to heaven at a young age. but… .”
When Pedric stopped talking and paused, everyone swallowed dryly.
“The cold is eating away at this child’s constitution and stamina, so it will be difficult for him to become a prosecutor even after treatment is complete.”
“That doesn’t matter.”
Sylvia shook her head vigorously, as if it would be fine as long as she didn’t die.
“If you think about it that way, it’s a good thing. Anyway, from now on, this child… .”
As Pedric was about to give additional advice, there was a knock and the door opened.
A middle-aged man wearing luxurious black robes entered the room and bowed his head.
“The head of the family is looking for his saint.”
“Tell them you’ll be leaving later.”
“He told me to come right now.”
“Tsk, anyway, he’s a guy who can’t get the timing right.”
Pedric clicked his tongue briefly and turned his head.
“Sylvia. “Don’t stop by again later.”
Pedric looked at Raon for a moment and then left the room with the middle-aged man.
‘It’s a curse of extreme cold… .’
Raon rubbed his fingers.
‘I finally figured it out.’
The identity of the cold that had been bothering him for so long was revealed. However, nothing particularly changes.
If you create a ring of fire and erase the cold at the same time as you have done so far, you can cure the curse of extreme cold before you become an adult and create a body and mana sensitivity that is better than anyone else’s.
As soon as the door closed, Sylvia hugged herself lying on the bed and rubbed her face. It was something she did when she was anxious.
“Mom will definitely save you. She somehow.”
Tears welled up in her eyes, which were always smiling.
When I heard Sylvia’s trembling, my heart felt tight as if I was pretending. She feels as if her heart is being scratched with a sharp wire.
I wasn’t sure what this feeling was, but I didn’t want to keep feeling this stinging sensation. so.
Raon wiped away the tears from Sylvia’s eyes with his small hand.
“Three, oh my… .”
Sylvia’s eyes widened, and the maids let out a short scream.
She lowered her head and stroked her wet hands for a while, then stood up.
“I have to go see my father.”
The hesitation disappeared from Sylvia’s expression.
* * *
Sylvia headed to Sieghart’s matriarchal exhibition for the first time since Raon was born.
Because the saint had passed by a little while ago, the road was wide open.
“Now the head of the family and the saint… .”
He forced his way through the servants and maids blocking his way and knocked on the throne room door.
thud! thud! thud!
After five knock-like punches, the huge door began to open.
“What’s going on?”
Glenn, who was sitting across from Pedric and drinking tea, frowned.
Sylvia clenched her teeth and knelt down.
“Please save Raon!”
Even though there were servants behind him, the slave put his head on the ground as if he were obeying his master.
“… … .”
Glenn watched Sylvia lower her head without blinking.
“You probably heard it too, right? “Even if the child’s constitution improves, it will be difficult for him to live as an unmanned person.”
Glenn knew about Raon’s condition as if he had already heard about it.
“You don’t have to raise it unattended!”
“A person who receives Sieghardt’s name does not become a warrior? “Why should I help such a worthless child?”
“Because he is my father’s grandson.”
“He is the grandson I brought with me after you left the family to sever ties.”
Sylvia lowered her trembling eyes to the floor.
“The only thing I can do for that child is to give him the name Sieghart. “It’s enough to make a fool of yourself once.”
Glenn’s face was as cold as if it were covered in ice.
“Sieghart is a land where only the strong can survive. It’s better to not have a weak grandson. Plus, you can probably get some elixirs too, right?”
“The elixirs in the family treasury are much more effective than those obtained from outside… .”
“It is an item to be given to those who have exalted the name of their family. Even if it’s your grandchild, there’s nothing to give to a child who hasn’t done anything. “Stop leaving.”
Sylvia balled her fist up until the blood flowed, then hit her head again.
‘You must not back down!’
If I was alone, I would return here. She would not have looked back out of pride.
But now he had a child to protect. He had to hang on until the end for Raon.
“Take it out.”
At Glenn’s firm instructions, soldiers dressed in black uniforms jumped out from behind the pillars. They grabbed Sylvia by both arms and dragged her to the door.
“Please, please Raon!”
Sylvia cried out Raon’s name until the end, but Glenn turned his head away as if he was not interested.
Pedric, who watched the whole thing, sighed.
“You called me to check on my youngest grandson, and you did a good job acting. “Is it that difficult to be honest?”
“Be loud and tell me the details.”
“As I said, nine mana circuits are blocked by cold. “It’s okay now, but it will become more dangerous as you get older.”
Pedric sipped his tea and continued.
“But thanks to your auror for pushing away the cold, there won’t be any major problems for a while.”
Even though Glenn and Pedric personally checked Raon’s body, they did not know that he was creating a ring of fire.
The Ring of Fire is a practice that dates back a thousand years and does not use dantian. Even if the two had absolute power, it was difficult to understand the ring of fire.
“Girls with the cold curse can become excellent wizards or swordsmen using pure cold energy, but boys with a lot of hot energy are different. As I said, it is close to impossible for your youngest grandson to become unmanned.”
“It doesn’t matter if I don’t become unmanned. “You just have to live.”
“You don’t mind scolding Sylvia? “Even the King of Northern Destruction’s youngest grandson looks pretty.”
“… … .”
Glenn ignored Pedric’s words and pointed his finger into the air.
The space splits into the letter 十 and a golden dimension opens. Three small wooden boxes protruded from a space filled with flames.
“You know what to do, right?”
He said that and handed the box over to Pedric.
“Ugh, this is why I don’t create a family crest or anything.”
Pedric sighed and took the wooden box.
Glenn’s cold voice rang strangely low.
“It’s all good, but why did you name that child Raon? It’s a good name and it’s strong, but it’s a shadow… .”
“The name Raon does not only mean shadow.”
He shook his head and looked at the golden sun high in the sky.
“A thousand years ago, it had the exact opposite meaning.
