« Young man, Flore is in a bad shape, » said Enzeqor.
« I don’t really see what you’re talking about. At the very least, it doesn’t seem that way. » Asked Valion.
« We’ll talk about that at a later time. You seem to have other priorities at the moment. Your revenge I assume. »
« I seek no vengeance. I just want to be by her side! Though if killing them is what it takes, then it shall be done. »
The old man sighed; « Oh how I miss my youth… »
« You still have a life ahead of you. Should we escape this place, I’ll make sure you get the best date you could ever dream of! »
A bright smile appeared on Enzeqor’s face; « I’ll take you on your word then. I am counting on you. I am not that much of a flirt anymore. I lost my touch. I’ve been here for decades. »
« So, how are we going to escape this deep valley? » Valion shivers out of nowhere; « Ugh, I just remembered its name… The valley of death, huh? »
« That’s the name, young one. Fortunately, Only the weak die here. You managed to one hit a monster in your disastrous state earlier. Death shall not find its way to you. At the very least, as long as you don’t face the gatekeeper. »
« Oh, that guy… Is he that strong? » Asked Valion.
« I bet you thought Urick was strong. Well, I hate to break it to you, but the gatekeeper is at the very least 10 times stronger if not more » Stated Enzeqor.
Valion was shocked. He couldn’t even begin to fathom how strong the gatekeeper would be if he didn’t manage to deal Urick in the first place. The news devastated him.
« I probably shouldn’t have told you that. » Wondered Enzeqor.
« No, not really. It’s much better. Knowing this gives me a huge load of motivation to work on getting stronger. After all, it’s doomed for me if I don’t win against him. » Said Valion.
« Him? Actually, the gatekeeper is not a human. It’s a demon created by one of Vlad’s sorcerers. »
« A demon?! What? Is that even possible? »
« Yes, Vlad went a bit overkill when it comes to making sure no one escapes this valley. He doesn’t want to risk anyone returning to the capital » Stated Enzeqor.
« Risk? What is he aware of? » Asked Valion.
« If someone were to be banished by Vlad, it would probably be because of knowing things he wouldn’t want to be revealed. He has some dark schemes going on in the background. Even his closest underlings probably don’t know much of what he’s planning. » Responded the old man.
« I see… What do I need to do to get out of here? »
« I understand your rush. Still, we both know that if we were to face the gatekeeper, we wouldn’t make it out unscathed. You have to be patient. I know how to make you stronger. Although You have to bear with what’s to come, Young one. » Stated Enzeqor.
« Okay! What kind of training will I go through? » Asked Valion.
« First of all, you need to understand what magic is. You’re using it out of intuition. Am I wrong? »
« More or less. My late dad taught me some lightning magic. » Valion spaces out of for a moment; « I honestly don’t remember much about him. Though he’s the one who helped me learn magic with godly attributes. » He added.
« There are seven types of magic. At the very least, that’s what the old records stated. They are the following; fire, water, wind, earth, lightning, light and dark. Some types counter the others. For instance, fire magic would be quite weak against the water element. Also, should some magic elements meet, they would create powerful combinations. For example, wind magic enhances fire magic by enraging its flames even more. With time, other magic elements appeared; ice, iron, mold and many others. You happen to have faced a rare type which is curse magic. »
Valion’s attention starts to fade away as the old man speaks about magic elements and how they work. » [After 15 minutes of the old man talking to himself]
« Getting bored, aren’t we? Is this all the motivation you have?! I am disappointed. » The old man just grinned at Valion.
« I am sorry, I hate going through lectures. I’ve had enough of them from dad. » Said Valion.
« Young one, every information you know will one day be of use to you. That much, I can assure you. You have great potential. Please, don’t waste it because of ignorance. One day, you’ll figure out what I am talking about. » Insisted Enzeqor.
« I admit that I got bored. However, I remember everything you said. Fear not, Old man. »
« I think you might have access to more than one magic type. Have you ever tried casting spells other than lightning ones and of course, enchanting magic? » Asked Enzeqor.
« I never considered that. I haven’t known until now that it’s actually possible. » Stated Valion.
« Follow me, young one. We have some monsters to train against. » Said Enzeqor as he took Valion’s hand and started walking.
