The Evolution of a Goblin to the Peak - Chapter 448 - Normal Day
Bryan was in his room thinking about the things that Lumilia said to him. They couldn’t trust that girl as they don’t have enough information but his instinct was telling him the opposite.
He could still remember how afraid the girl became when they told her that the authorities were coming. If this was an ordinary event, he would simply save the girl and be done with it but this time his senses were warning him. It means that something dangerous was happening in this country and they don’t have any idea about it.
He was an A-rank and he would only feel danger against something at his level or above him.
Bryan fell asleep while thinking about the girl. He woke up early in the morning before the sun rise.
His routine was to wash his face and brush his mouth before he eat his breakfast. After that, he wore his uniform and went towards the academy.
“Ahhh~ I’m tired…”
Bryan yawned while walking. He wanted to sleep more but he guess that he would continue it in his class.
A voice sounded behind him. He turned around and saw a girl with red twin tails running in his direction while waving her petite hand.
Bryan raised his eyebrows and he stopped walking so that the girl could catch up to him.
This girl was a first-year student at Liven Academy. Her name was Eunice Le Giniver. She came from one of the Ten Great Families, the Giniver Family. She was also the little sister of Amiel, Alea’s friend.
“I didn’t think that I would see you here,” Eunice said with an excited expression as she walked beside Bryan. Her height could only reach Bryan’s chin.
“Oh, so where are your guards?” Bryan asked while looking around.
“Hmph, I shooed them away,” Eunice said as she crossed her arms in front of her tiny chest. “Why are you always asking me about my guards?”
“Because last time they fought me and they are quite strong so I wanted to fight them once again,” Bryan replied to her while scratching his cheeks.
“Tsk! Why is it always about fighting?” Eunice clicked her tongue in annoyance.
“Because it’s exciting and fun,” Bryan replied to her with a big smile on his face.
“Oh,” Eunice was in daze when she heard Bryan’s expression. She then shook her head. “You will not be able to catch me like that.”
“Huh?” Bryan was confused. He couldn’t understand what she mean by that.
The two arrived at the academy and they separated. Bryan was a second year student while Eunice was first year student and also their departments were different.
“See you later, Brother Bryan,” Eunice said while waving her hand.
“See you too,” Bryan said before he turned around.
He got to know her after the small event in the academy. That was the first time that he met this little puny girl. Sometimes, that girl would even join his lunch with Lumilia and Lynn.
Just like what he usually does, Bryan slept in the class and wake up when he heard the ring indicating the time for lunch. Most of the people didn’t bother him as they knew that he was strong and has Princess Alea on his back.
“Oh, it’s lunch. Right on time. I’m getting hungry right now.”
Bryan said as he walked into the canteen and went to his usual table. Lumilia and Lynn were already at the table so he just sat beside them.
“Did you sleep in your class, Bryan?” Lumilia quickly asked when she saw Bryan’s face.
“Yeah, why?” Bryan nodded and asked.
Lumilia could only sigh. As expected of Bryan. He was always sleeping in class. This would never change no matter what they experienced.
“It’s okay, Mila.” Lynn smiled while placing her hand on her friend’s shoulder.
“Don’t worry. I never forgot training myself. I will be able to completely liquefied all the mana in my mana pool.” Bryan assured her while looking proud at his achievement.
“That fast!” Lumilia was a little bit surprised but she quickly calmed down. It was expected from this dumb one yet genius at improving his power level. “I hardly even liquefy one drop of mana yet you are close to liquefying all the mana in your mana pool. Sigh… Just how did you do it?”
“It’s simple. Just compressed your mana and imagine it becoming a water.” Bryan said plainly.
“I know that but doing it is harder.” Lumilia sighed once again. Her power level was at the peak of B-rank and she wanted to liquefy her mana as soon as possible.
She could remember the battle that they’ve fought in the Moon Tower. Their opponents at that time were mostly B-rank and A-rank experts. If not for Yuko’s timely evolution, then they would suffer defeat at the hands of the executives.
“Brother Bryan is truly amazing…”
Lumilia and Lynn turned their heads when they heard the voice. They saw Eunice coming at them with her lunch.
“Hello, Eunice…” Lynn smiled.
“You’re here for Bryan again?” Lumilia asked after greeting her.
Eunice smiled as she greeted them before nodding her head. “Yes, Brother Bryan is simply amazing. A second-year yet already reach the realm of liquefying mana.”
“It’s nothing. I’m sure that Souta is even stronger than me. He is the only one that I couldn’t defeat. But I’m quite excited to fight him once again.” Bryan smiled while imagining him fighting Souta with his current strength.
“Is your leader really a strong person? I’ve heard tons of news about him but is he really that amazing?” Eunice asked curiously while looking at the three.
“Yeah, he’s a super strong person,” Lynn answered without hesitation.
“I’ve fought him countless times yet I’ve never even won against him,” Bryan said.
“You’ve heard the news, right? Those news are real. It’s not exaggerated.” Lumilia said. “He is the pillar of the Dark Oculus Legion. He built it from nothing till it reaches its current level.”
“But it still a B-rate sub-organization of Adventurers Guild. You only had one registered A-rank adventurer.” Eunice said.
“Yeah, that’s why we’re planning to raise our rank later. Bryan will go there and have the guild promote his rank to A-rank. They will approve it since he is already in the realm of liquefying.” Lumilia explained to her.
“Argh, the realm of liquefying in short A-rank. I still need to work hard before I manage to catch up to Brother Bryan.” Eunice gritted her teeth.
“Haha, just work hard and maybe you could fight me.” Bryan laughed then an idea came into my mind. “How about you join our legion? I’m sure that you like it.”
Eunice turned sad and she shook her head. “Actually, I wanted to join your legion but my family prohibited me from joining any organization until I graduated.”
“It’s fine,” Lumilia said to Eunice.
“It’s okay.” Eunice shook her head and a smile formed on her face. “Right? Brother Bryan, you’re liquefying your mana so fast. What kind of technique are you using?”
“It’s the Three Element Condensation Technique that Teacher Bargan taught to us.” Bryan simply answered her.
“Oh, that technique is for people who had three elemental affinities but it will only help you till solidifying realm.” Eunice read a lot of techniques in the book in her family so she knew Bryan’s technique to liquefy his mana.
After a person reached A-rank or B-rank, they will need a specific technique to help them promote their rank just like the Three Element Condensation Technique. This technique wasn’t for attacking, defending, or supporting in battle. It was a utility skill that will only help a person easily condense their mana to liquid and solid. Without this technique, a person would have a hard time promoting their power level alone.
“You’re so lucky you had three elements but I read from the books that it’s hard to liquefy mana with three elemental affinities,” Eunice said.
“You can’t expect him to give you an answer in detail. I’m sure that he will say that he compressed his mana or some sort of that.” Lumilia said from the side.
“Right, it’s Brother Bryan after all.” Eunice laughed lightly.
Lynn smiled and then she asked, “What about you Eunice? I’m sure your family gives you secret technique.”
“Nah, my old wouldn’t even let me learn those secret techniques. He said that I should rank high in the academy. Ugh, within top 50 my ass!” Eunice stomped her foot in annoyance.
“I see… You’re having a hard time on your own.” Lynn smiled wryly.
“All of us have a problem. Also, you’re only at C-rank Eunice so you couldn’t use the technique for the liquefying realm.” Lumilia said to Eunice. “Our technique is only for liquefying realm and solidifying realm. We still have to find a technique for the realm above.”
“Oh, the shackled realm.. What they called SS-rank, SSS-rank, and Hero-rank.”
