Before I started talking about the skill with Dan, I was hit by anxiety that the serpent might come attacking me again again because the serpent had come attacking my house for the second time already.
I started worrying about the possibility of dungeon overflow again. I was lucky that I was able to subjugate the serpent by chance but if that serpent were to spew his poisonous breath in town, it would certainly become a great disaster. I decided to add 30 gold coins as a reward for subjugating the serpent. I entrusted the subjugation reward allocation for each serpent to Dan.
Next, it was time to discuss the skill I could get. First and foremost, I could just continue accumulating the points until I had enough to get the higher level skill for wind magic. At this rate, it was possible for me to get it if I kept on training and subjugating monsters.
Second option, I could get either attack or defensive skill. The second skill would cost me 100 guild points while the third skill would cost me 500 guild points. With my current guild point, I could get the second skill if I wanted now.
Third option, I could learn other basic magic skills. It would cost me 150 guild points to learn another basic magic skill. In addition, a certain level of basic magic skill was required to learn the higher tier of same type magic. Besides, just like ‘wind’ was a countermove against the serpent, other basic magic could be effective in certain situations.
After a lot of pondering, I decided to take another basic magic skill. Light magic.
I conveyed my intention to Dan and held my guild card over the crystal ball. I could see my guild point had become 19 points.
Then I was taken to the dojo where Han-sensei had been waiting for me. I said ‘please take care of me’ in Lancaster language and offered a handshake to him. And so, it was time to start the training session with Han-sensei.
Han-sensei chanted a short incantation and then a ball of light appeared, flying in a straight line toward the wooden target. The ball hit the target and my whole field of vision was enveloped in light.
So this is the basic spell of light magic.
Han-sensei told me to give it a try. I memorized the short incantation in Lancaster language in my mind many times over and tried to imagine the same ball of light like I had seen before.
Then, I tried to become aware of the flow of magic power in me.
After practicing for 2 hours, finally a ball of light could appear from my hand. The ball of light flew unsteadily and before the ball could even reach the target, the ball of light disappeared. The ball of light burst and disappeared, just like a soap bubble.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Light level 1.』
Han-sensei clapped and said ‘congratulations’ in Lancaster language. I then said ‘thank you’ in return. I shook Han-sensei’s right hand and left the dojo.
T/N: Finally! We have another glorified light bulb! Now MC won’t need a lantern at night~
