“Just give me one more time!” Moxinke pointed to the center between his eyebrows and implored with smile on his face. His soft armor was already soaked in sweat, and his chest heaved up and down dramatically. It was normal because he had been practicing sword art for the whole morning. No matter how energetic he was, he would be exhausted.
Han Jin rolled his eyeballs to Moxinke without reply. He was still carving his army calling charm on the wooden blocks.
“Sir prophet, give me one more time please!” Moxinke pleaded like a child who wanted candy.
Han Jin let out a sigh. He couldn’t stand Moxinke’s action like this. It didn’t make Han Jin felt sympathy for the big guy at all, on the contrary, it just made him have goose bumps all over his body. Han Jin had no choice but drew another charm of spirit refreshment in the air and then waved his arm.
As soon as the charm was printed on the middle of Moxinke’s eyebrows, his body suddenly straightened. He burst out a laughter and threw out a sword flower after swinging his wrist and then strode into the woods.
Han Jin lowered his head to continue carving his wooden army calling charm, but only after a few knives, he suddenly felt something staring at him. He slowly raised his head and saw Cessacioun was standing at the place where Moxinke stood just now and smiling at him. The expression in his eyes was exactly the same as that of Moxinke’s, desire and pleading, it’s only that Cessacioun was thin-skinned and felt shamed to speak out what he wanted.
Han Jin was totally speechless. It had been a month since they had left the Eleventh Town, and during the previous month, his position had changed greatly. What’s also changed was the feature of the whole group of them. In the past, they were just friends who cooperated with each other. But now, Han Jin was gradually considered as the leader of them, and his leading position was not formed by voting, but by an irreversible trend. The reason for such change was the mere charm of spirit refreshment which was despised by Han Jin all the time.
His first display of the charm in front of them was the day when they were grilling the merchant George. Han Jin made a charm of spirit refreshment in order to keep George sober during the torturing process, which attracted the attention of Moxinke. When they settled down for the time being in the forest, Moxinke urged Han Jin to release that magic for him by referring to it as “give me a time.”
The potential of the charm was excavated hereafter, which made Moxinke and Cessacioun be entranced with joy. The basis for a soldier was the strength of fighting, while that of a magician was magic power. The release and control of fighting strength as well as the ways to gather and control elements were all supported by psychic force.
However, in this world, psychic force was difficult to be supplemented by foreign objects, even the strong bright magic of sacrifice could only improve one’s fighting and defending ability. Except the Forbidden Spell and Art of Sacrifice of the bright serial, none of the other magics could supplement one’s psychic force. It could only recover through time.
But the charm of spirit refreshment made by Han Jin broke this impossibility, which could not only significantly improve one’s psychic force, but also improve one’s strength and endurance. Moxinke claimed that with this charm, he could achieve progress that would cost him six or seven days in the past within just one day now .
What Han Jin displayed to them was not a charm, but also a future of infinite temptation. As a professional, there was nothing more attractive than rapid increase in strength.
However, Han Jin didn’t enjoy his more and more ‘respected’ position at all. On the contrary, he was quite distressed, for that the energy he spent on that charm each day was not a small number even his energy was now increasing steadily at a rate of three hundred or four hundred yuan daily.
“You also want to have a time?” Han Jin asked with his eyebrows raised.
“Ho ho … …” Cessacioun made an embarrassed laugh.
Han Jin made a charm of spirit refreshment reluctantly and asked: “Don’t only think about your meditation, when can I have my space ring?”
“I’ve never come into contact with space magic before, so…” Cessacioun was going to say more, but seeing the disappointed expression on Han Jin’s face, he quickly changed his words: “but you can rest assured, give me another fifteen days. I am sure to open the space of the ring!”
“As long as you have tried your best.” Han Jin shook his head slightly.
“I have achieved very fast progress this month and I believe it won’t take long before I become a real high grade warlock. And at that time I will be more assured.”
Han Jin paused for a while and said: “Cessacioun, not to be too tired. You are different from Moxinke. He is as strong as a wild ox, but you…”
“I know, don’t worry about me.” Cessacioun answered with smile.
Han Jin let out a light sigh. He didn’t say anything more. Now everybody’s high in morale, he didn’t want to hit anyone. But he had never used the charm of spirit refreshment to others like this. To put it bluntly, this charm was somewhat similar to stimulants, it could be very effective, but repeated use would also cause some unknown sequela.
After Cessacioun going away, Han Jin continued to carve his wooden army calling charm seriously. It took him a long time before he finally finished one. He heaved a sigh of relief and threw that dark green bead back to Sunier, who was sitting there three meters away from him and watching him silently all the time.
She reached out her hand and caught the bead: “Don’t you make any more today?”
“No, I am a little tired.” Han Jin replied. After a while he smiled: “Sunier, why do you stay here with me all the time these days? Don’t you feel bored?”
“No.” Sunier shook her head.
“Do you… also wanna have a time?” By saying this, the words “a time” were stressed.
“No need.” Sunier replied earnestly: “I know each time you release the magic, you need to absorb the elements from the magic crystals to supplement those you’ve spent. It’s a hard work, isn’t it? But they don’t know. That’s why they ask you for help repeatedly. But… it’s a secret between us, isn’t it?”
“Well … … yes.” Han Jin played with the knife in his hand while replying her. He felt surprised to some extent. Among them he was the only one who had never revealed his past. He didn’t do this, and he couldn’t do this. As for the others, they had, more or less, talked something about their past. Sunier had amazing experience, she should understand what he said just now was only a joke. Unless, she was completely in-experience in joking.
“Miss Keeley didn’t came to you because she felt embarrassed. And Steelberg has started learning magic from Cessacioun. I suppose a few days later they will come to you for help again.”
“When? He has not told me.”
“About half a month ago. Cessacioun said Steelberg has great talent, but unfortunately….. it’s too late for him.”
“This kid!” Han Jin felt headache after hearing this. Though they were all friends, Steelberg was always the most important person for him. Even the lad was the poorest one in terms of strength and even if all the others leave Steelberg alone, Han Jin would never abandon him. Now he had to spend energy on him too.
“Sir prophet, time for dinner.” Michelle came in with smile. His attitude towards Han Jin had changed enormously since Han Jin’s ability was affirmed. Now each time he called Han Jin, he would started with ‘Sir’.
“Nice. Let’s have dinner first and talk about other things later.” Han Jin laughed.
