Reincarnation Genius Sword Master - Episode 28
Martha’s training sword cuts through the cool air of early summer. Sharp yet smooth connection. It was a soft sword, one of Sieghardt’s basic sword techniques.
She struck down her sword with a fierce look in her eyes as if she were standing in the middle of a battlefield. Due to her strong momentum, even the sand that rose from her gym could not reach her.
A similar sound of sword wind was heard from Martha’s right. A boy with blond hair and red eyes. It was Raon Sieghardt.
His blunt training sword was unfolding the same type of training sword as Marta’s.
Raon, who had lagged behind for a long time, eventually caught up with Marta.
However, Martha’s face, as she watched it, did not show the same nervousness and tension as before.
Instead, he applauded Raon with a smile on his face.
Martha put down her training sword and swept up her disheveled hair.
“The speed at which he learns martial arts is such that even calling him a genius is not enough. however… .”
She trailed off slightly and twirled her fingers.
“If your mana sensitivity is like that, it’s no different from a pearl on a pig’s neck. “I don’t really envy that kind of half-talented talent.”
Martha’s voice was loud. All the practitioners heard that, but no one came forward.
“It would be better to have half the talent for Auror and half for martial arts. With your talent, what you can do is become a swordsmanship instructor?”
Neither the trainees who received help from Raon, Buren, nor Rimmer and the instructors who were watching from the side opened their mouths.
‘It has to be that way.’
Martha sneered even louder.
‘Because no one would have known that that idiot wouldn’t be able to learn Auror for 4 months.’
Although it had been more than four months since regular Auror training began, Raon had not mastered Auror skills, and his Danjeon was empty.
‘I was appalled at first.’
I was truly astonished to see Raon developing at an incredible rate.
I can’t even sleep because of the fear of being chased by an incredible talent. Even though I practiced every day from dawn to night, the fear did not go away.
But everything changed after listening to Carmel.
‘It was really half-assed.’
It was not a lie to say that Raon showed the worst mana sensitivity in the discrimination ceremony.
Even today, four months after he started practicing, he was unable to create an aura in his dantian.
No matter how well you learn or master swordsmanship or martial arts, what will you do with them? Those fists and swords don’t have the power they should contain.
Marta twitched her chin, laughing at Raon, who was swinging his sword while sweating coldly.
‘It wasn’t worth worrying about.’
I thought it was a threatening entity, but not anymore. Raon was not even at the level of the cowardly Dorian, let alone Buren or Runaan.
However, the fact that I was counterattacked by Raon was still stuck in my mind.
‘You can forget about it now. ‘I wouldn’t even be an opponent in a match where Aurors are used.’
Marta smiled leisurely and turned around.
Runan Slion stood with a sullen expression.
“Is that all you have to say?”
“I’ll go even if you don’t urge me. “It’s time for high-level training.”
I waved my hand gently and left the training ground.
Martha mocked him and left, but Raon did not react. White steam spewed from his mouth and he swung his sword continuously.
The only thing reflected in his red eyes was the sword.
* * *
After Raon finished his night training, he looked around the indoor training center.
‘Is everyone back?’
Since it was a two-day holiday starting tomorrow, everyone went home and no one remained at the training ground.
Raon let out an excited breath and put down his sword. He was so focused on his swordsmanship while using the ring of fire that he didn’t even realize it was night.
The same level of concentration as before assassination. It was an extreme degree of concentration that was difficult to exert during training.
‘My swordsmanship has improved considerably.’
Thanks to focusing only on the sword, the performance of soft swords has increased considerably. If you learn it a little more, you will be able to use it in real life without any problems.
-Have you finally come to your senses?
While I was satisfied with today’s training, Lars’ voice filled with anger rang out.
-You can’t believe you stay quiet even after being provoked like that. Pathetic guy!
-Didn’t that black-haired girl keep stammering?
‘Oh, did you?’
Raon laughed. She was so focused on her training that she didn’t even notice Marta talking.
-If you had said something like that to the King, I would have frozen your whole body and broken it into pieces!
‘I told you this before. There is no benefit in fighting now.’
If you fall for the provocation and fight now, there’s nothing you can do with Martha.
It would be much better to bet on the senior position and bet on her to get at least an elixir or a book of martial arts.
‘Because you can win no matter what you do.’
It’s easy to beat a kid like Marta even if you don’t know how to play Comic Ball. When she gets her decent treasure, it’s time to put up her fight.
‘I should go back first.’
When Raon finished cleaning up and was about to turn off the magic light in the training room, a small sound of footsteps was heard from the door.
Small, light footsteps. It was the sound of Runaan’s steps that I could not help but hear every day.
When I looked back, Runaan was standing there with sparkling purple eyes. My eyes weren’t as blind as usual.
She held out her hand, which she had been hiding behind her. It was a box slightly smaller than a brick.
“What is this?”
Runaan did not answer, but opened the lid of the box. Underneath the white cold air that rose up with the lid, there was a bead the size of a child’s fist.
Raon looked alternately at the beads in the box and Runaan’s purple eyes.
“You want me to take this?”
Runaan nodded and placed the beads in the box into her hands. A pleasant coolness came over his palm.
After saying that, she closed the lid of the box.
I don’t know what this is. However, seeing that it was stored in a box filled with cold air, it was clear that it was valuable.
According to what I learned from my life as an assassin, I shouldn’t eat, but the anticipation in Runaan’s eyes made my hand move.
This guy won’t give you anything weird.
I closed my eyes and put the bead in my mouth, and it melted right on the tip of my tongue. The cool sweetness of frozen chocolate enveloped my entire mouth.
It was so cool and sweet that I couldn’t help but laugh. My eyes brightened.
-Wow, it tastes like this! It’s a sweetness I’ve never felt even when the King was in the demon world! No, did the sweetness increase because of the coolness? Bring more, more! I want to try more!
Lars must have connected his senses and jumped up and down after eating the ice cream.
Raon pushed Lars, who was fluttering like a butterfly, with his elbow.
“how is it?”
“Wow, it’s delicious.”
“It’s bead ice cream.”
Runaan nodded his head loudly and stepped back. And then he left the training center.
He beckoned and called, but Runaan did not turn around.
-… It’s a different species. But I wish they had given me just one more thing.
‘Are you worried?’
Runaan seemed to be worried that Marta had openly ridiculed her today, so she gave her the beaded ice cream.
I’ve had ice cream at the annex from time to time, but this was my first time seeing it in this form and taste.
Looking at the size of the box, it would have contained at most four ice creams, but it looks like they handed over the last one.
‘You’re giving me the last thing left.’
As a child, Runan loves sweet food.
It’s understandable to be obsessed with the last remaining ice cream, but handing it over without hesitation probably wasn’t an ordinary decision.
In my mind, I pictured Runan hesitantly holding the snack she had saved.
“I am indeed.”
Raon laughed. I felt a little sorry that I made that child worry.
‘But I don’t mind.’
The path you must walk is higher and more difficult than anyone else’s. And Manhwagong is a guide that will make walking that path easier.
How could such an excellent guide easily lend his strength? You have to wait patiently.
‘I guess I’ll have to repay you later.’
Raon left the training ground with a soft smile. My tired steps became as light as a blade of grass.
* * *
“oh my god! “Master Raon!”
When Raon opened the door to the annex and entered, Helen, who was standing at the entrance, approached with wide eyes.
“What’s going on?”
Sylvia, who heard Helen’s voice, kicked down the door, ran over, and hugged Raon.
“It’s been so long! “He hasn’t come to visit for months!”
“I saw you last week.”
Raon pushed Sylvia away who was rubbing her cheek. After becoming a trainee, it was possible to visit on weekends, so Sylvia came to my dorm every week.
“That and this are different!”
Sylvia punched the air and shook her head.
“You haven’t eaten yet, right? I’ll get ready soon. Helen!”
“young master. Please wait a minute.”
Sylvia went into the kitchen with her maids. Listening to her ringing voice, it seemed like she was trying to make beef stew.
What should I say?
I can’t express it exactly, but I feel at ease when I come to the annex. Is this what a real house that wasn’t in my previous life would be like?
“Make it quickly! “Raon must be hungry!”
“all right! But the ingredients… .”
“First, hit everything you have!”
Raon headed to the bathroom while listening to the friendly sounds coming from the kitchen.
* * *
Early morning the next day.
Judeel was kneeling in Raon’s room with his head bowed.
Raon sat down on the bed and tapped the paper in his hand. It’s the same moonlight paper he found in the lake earlier.
“Raise your head.”
Judeel trembled at the solemn voice and lifted his head.
“What is the story that came down from the heavy combat mission?”
“Ta, nothing in particular. “In the past, we were ordered to investigate in more detail because you learned martial arts and swordsmanship quickly, but now that you have not mastered Auror skills, it seems that interest has faded away.”
“I guess that’s true too.”
Raon grinned. Aurors are the most important element for all warriors. It seemed like he lost interest in himself because his talent was inferior.
“What about your mother?”
“It seems like interest in Sylvia has decreased. If this continues, there is a possibility that I will withdraw.”
You might say that it wouldn’t be good to withdraw, but that’s not the case at all.
‘There are no corners to exploit.’
That wasn’t a good trend because the reason for making Judiel a double agent disappeared.
“Um, I wonder if you didn’t learn Auror on purpose until now… .”
Judiel opened his trembling lips.
Raon didn’t answer, but just smiled. With that alone, Judiel swallowed dry saliva.
The fear of that day still dominates her.
“Good work. “Let’s go out.”
Judiel stood up with his eyes trembling. Glad he didn’t have to go through the fear and pain, she quickly opened the door and walked out.
-If someone hears it, they will think that I didn’t cook it on purpose.
‘Using the atmosphere and situation well is also an ability.’
Raon tapped Lars, who was hanging on his wrist. Judiel will make mistakes and increase his presence and fear even more.
-It’s pathetic that you’re having such a hard time learning Aurors. When King Bon was in the demon world, he could practice magic and martial arts once he had learned them even with his eyes closed.
‘That’s so pathetic.’
Raon answered leisurely and left the room. Because my mind was relaxed, I was able to laugh off Lars’ teasing.
When I was about to go to the garden for early morning training, a man approached me from afar. An elf with red hair who carries a pleasant wind. It was Rimmer.
“did you sleep well?”
Rimmer waved his hand with a new house on his head.
“What are you doing since dawn?”
“I couldn’t keep what I promised before. “I’m sorry about that, so I’m trying to help you a little.”
“On the first day of martial arts training, you said you would teach me Jinseungquan and then ran away.”
“It’s already too late, so I’ll give you another education.”
He grinned and wagged his finger. Dark green wind soared from the tips of his slender fingers.
“Let me tell you what properties are.”
