Chapter 50. Master Class (4)
Translator: Atlas Editor: Ambrtrn
Weekly Chapter (1/5)
Flynn was stronger than an Eternia scout.
A dwarf had forged his sword, which increased his power.
He questioned whether this evaluation was morally correct.
Although he had been a prodigy at swordsmanship since he was a child and excelled in the Combat Department, he had never experienced anything like this.
Flynn opened his mouth.
“Master, do I really have to do this?”
Gael’s response was coherent.
“We’re not here to play games. Be relentless.”
She stroked her chin quietly.
“My reputation is at stake if you don’t.”
Damien was in his room. He didn’t do anything because he thought he might lose strength.
He just laid in bed while he remembered his training.
A few hours passed. Footsteps sounding in the corridor reached his room. Soon after, his door opened abruptly.
He already knew who it was.
He swiftly left the bed.
“The evaluation is going to begin now.”
Sylverine motioned for him to follow her. He followed her without objection.
They exchanged no words as they left the mansion.
He was so nervous he felt his heart burning.
He wondered how Sylverine would feel.
He broke the silence first.
“What is it?”
“What if I don’t pass the evaluation for the master class?”
Sylverine said quietly,
“Nothing. It will only damage my reputation a little.”
His master’s reputation.
He attracted attention because he was Sylverine’s student. She even wrote a letter of recommendation for him. That’s why Eternia’s vice director came to see him.
She would suffer a huge blot on her reputation if he failed to pass.
Suddenly, she turned around.
“But there’s something to keep in mind.”
“I made this decision without your consent, so I take full responsibility. I won’t be disappointed if you don’t pass. Don’t think about my reputation.”
“Your reputation is also important to me.”
“If you don’t pass the evaluation for the master class, I assure you that your life at the Academy will be much easier. It will be the opposite if you pass the evaluation.”
He didn’t understand why she told him this, as if he shouldn’t approve.
“Is there any reason to pass this evaluation?”
Sylverine remained thoughtful for a while.
“…It is necessary to fulfill your mission.”
He was left confused.
“Surely you know this vaguely. That power didn’t come into this world for no reason. It is a mission. The master class will help carry it out.”
She narrowed her eyes. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“And… the path to the mission will be painful. It is better that you return to the workshop.”
“You decide whether to accomplish that mission. You are now at the starting point…”
Sylverine finished her explanation.
He didn’t have to think too much about it.
He didn’t know for what purpose he had received this power.
He also did some intense training that he would not have even imagined when he was in the workshop. That was quite exhausting.
However, to fulfill the unknown mission, he had to suffer even more. He might not even be able to grow old and end his life in a bed.
He felt fear.
But he had already decided on the answer from the moment he found the star fragment. He would follow this path no matter what.
His heartbeat gradually returned to a steady rhythm after he reaffirmed his will once again.
“What do I have to do to pass the evaluation?”
Sylverine slightly smiled.
Her hand gently caressed his face.
There was a hint of pride in her eyes.
“Try as hard as you have so far.”
A large oval arena had been made in the vacant lot where the evaluation would be held.
The planteras received a wooden sword the size of a man. His swords, resting on his chest, pointed skyward. Their presence cast a large shadow over the center of the arena.
From the mansion, Damien and Sylverine were approaching the arena.
