The False Summoner - Chapter 41 - Fusion Practice I
Proofread by Peter Gong
In everyone’s expectation, Diana says: “I’ll give you two choices: First, you can get out of the Royal Knights College now and never come back again; Secondly after I burn you into a roast pig, I’ll throw you out of the Royal Knights Academy! ” After hearing Diana’s words, the students who are closer to Rowen all switch places, and they are tens of meters away from him. They don’t want to be hurt by his side.
“Nina, Carl, you back two steps,” Rowen whispers.
Although Nina and Carl are a bit reluctant, they also know that they couldn’t help and have to get up and leave.
Rowen looks up at Diana and says lightly, “You have a third option: get out of the cafeteria and let me finish this meal in peace.”
Everyone is shocked, and how dare this guy threaten Diana away? Doesn’t he want to live?
“What did you say?” Diana looks enraged, glaring at Rowen.
“If you don’t hear me clearly, I’ll say it again: please get out of the cafeteria and let me have a meal peacefully.” Rowen looks at Diana calmly.
Before Rowen’s voice falls, he has heard Diana cast a spell quickly.
As soon as he presses the bracelet, Rowen once again merges with the Iron Beast, and the lightsaber starts at the same time. Rowen takes a big step forward and appears in front of Diana. The lightsaber turns towards her without hesitation. The whole process is completed in one go. Before Diana even finishes her spell, she finds that a monster is appearing in front of her. Almost subconsciously, she quickly enters magic into the wand, and the magic shield is activated instantly, but her mouth does not stop chanting.
The lightsaber slashes the magic shield, which breaks instantly. Rowen’s left hand quickly goes towards Diana’s neck. The next moment, the cold metal fingers firmly seize Diana’s pink neck, suspending her in midair.
The unfinished spell stops abruptly, and Rowen’s cold voice sounds again: “You can continue to make your spell, but I can guarantee that after you finish, you can’t say any more words!”
There is a cold stillness around, and countless people couldn’t help rubbing their eyes over and over again. They couldn’t believe what they see. The magical princess is so stupefied like a chick at this moment. This is unbelievable.
“Rowen, let Diana go!” Quinn is the first who responds, yelling hurriedly.
“As members of the Cavaliers Guard, your responsibility should be to protect the students of the academy, not to use your identity as an advantage over others!” Rowen snorts, “Now get out of there!”
After saying this, Rowen shakes his hand, throwing Diana a few meters away, and then falls heavily to the ground.
Quinn hurries to pull up Diana, but hears an angry shout: “Get out of the way, I can get up!”
Diana stands up from the ground and walks towards Rowen again. Everyone seems to sense the anger of Diana and makes way for her. Even Quinn steps aside consciously, not wanting to offend Diana at this time.
“Why? Do you want me to throw you out of the cafeteria?” Rowen sneers. Although Diana is a sixth-level magician, he is sure he could handle her easily at such a close range. A magician is afraid of close combat, and taking advantage of the speed of the iron beast he can easily approach her. At the same time the lightsaber can tear her magic shield, moreover, the magician’s footsteps are not agile, which fails to match a martial artist in terms of capability. Therefore, it is not difficult for him to defeat her. That’s the reason why he can grab her so easily.
“Rowen, remember, I will make you a roast pig one day!” Diana says her words by gritting her teeth, then she turns around and shouts coldly, “Let’s go!”
Diana turns around and leaves quickly, and Quinn and others follow immediately, but the cafeteria is still silent, and everyone seems to have not fully reacted.
It is not until Rowen turns the Iron Armor into a bracelet and sits back at the table to dine again that the people in the canteen whisper again, and he also finds that countless eyes keep looking at him, and undoubtedly, at this moment, he becomes the focus.
“Wow, Rowen, you are so good!” Nina rushes over in excitement, holding Rowen’s neck with her arms, and kissing him heavily on his face.
“Hey, watch out, this is a public occasion!” Carl cries quickly.
“It’s none of your business!” Nina rolls her eyes at Carl and sits beside Ron happily, but her face is slightly red, and she seems a bit shy because of her bold behavior.
Rowen is kissed by Nina, and a strange feeling fills her heart. Strictly speaking, this is not the first time he has been kissed by a girl. Remember that Caroline kissed him once when he was six years old, but at that time they were just kids. Now that he is an adult, and Nina is an adult too, this feeling is completely different, of course.
After dinner, Rowen comes to the bamboo forest again. The air here is very fresh and it feels quite comfortable, but he does not see Agatha, who is supposed to sleep here.
Lying on the bamboo that he cut down, Rowen looks at the sky. He doesn’t practice as usual. He wants to think quietly about how he can keep the progress of the cultivation of the Sun and Moon Mental Skill and meanwhile maintain the normal progress of the summoner’s practice.
The cultivation of the Sun and Moon Mental Skill usually takes him all night, and he also spent e whole night meditating before. If he wants to practice both at the same time, he has to divide the time into two parts: the first half of the night for Practising the Sun and the Moon Mental Skill, and the small hours for practising magic.
But this is not what Rowen wants, because this will slow down the cultivation. On the Cangyun continent there are people who have both magic talent and warrior talent, but there are fewer people who boast of both magic power and martial arts. That’s the reason why the people who want to balance both will make both skills mediocre.
Under normal circumstances, Rowen should choose one of the two, but he knows that he cannot give up both. He must make himself a higher-level summoner, but he should be even stronger. Only in this way can he control the Iron Beast, so what he has to do now is not to consider which one to choose, but how to achieve the best of both skills.
Can one combine the cultivation of the Sun and the Moon Mental Skill with the cultivation of magic? Rowen suddenly comes up with a seemingly whimsical idea. However, this idea, though a bit surprising, seems to be the only way to solve his current problem.
This idea makes Rowen a little excited. He starts to ponder over the similarities shared by the two skills. His careful thinking leads to his surprising discovery that there is a lot in common between the two skills.
Magic cultivation is completed through meditating and feeling the magical elements in the air, then absorbing them into one’s body, and ultimately depositing them, turning them into magical power. By contrast, the Sun and Moon Mental Skill feels the energy of the sun and the moon, absorbing them and finally depositing them in one’s body, turning them into Qi of the sun and the moon.
If magical elements are regarded as a kind of energy, magical cultivation almost equals the cultivation of the Sun and the Moon Skill, which leads to Rowen’s coming up with an idea: Is it possible that he can cultivate the Sun and the Moon Skill at the same time by means of absorbing, rather than meditating, the magical elements in the air?
Suppose magical elements are a kind of energy, now what he should do is to absorb two kinds of energy. He can absorb the energy of the moon as well as the magical elements in the air.
This terrific idea excites Rowen a little. He takes a deep breath and sits up from the ground. Although he knows it is a bit risky, he knows that he has to try it. In order to make his strength much stronger, he must put his idea into action!
Sitting on the ground cross-legged, Rowen closes his eyes slightly, abandoning the disturbing thoughts in his heart, and completely throwing away the external distractions. Qi of the sun and the moon starts to circulate slowly in his meridians, and cool breaths from outside and Qi of the sun and the moon fuses into one, which is quite familiar to him.
But now, what he has to do is not these familiar things. On the one hand, he continues to maintain the normal operation of Qi of the Sun and the Moon; on the other hand, he begins to feel the magic elements in the air, imagining that these magic elements enter his body.
For a summoner who has been meditating and practicing magic since childhood, it is not difficult to feel the magic elements. Rowen soon feels the magic elements in the air, and these magic elements seem to hear his call, gathering from all directions and quickly entering his body.
This speed is much faster than the speed at which he absorbed the magical elements in his meditation. This discovery surprises Rowen at the same time, but he is a bit worried because it is beyond his understanding. Everyone on the Cangyun continent knows that absorbing magical elements depends on the talent. A talented magician or summoner can absorb magic elements faster, and his magic speed increases faster.
But now, this common sense seems to be broken. A person’s natural talent is innate and will not change, but Rowen now absorbs magic elements faster and seems to be several times faster, which is completely abnormal.
