“Let’s greet the Chief.”
As the man got closer, the wizard bowed his head and greeted him.
‘Is that person Cordell?’
Soo-hyuk heard the wizard’s greeting and was able to know the identity of the man.
The man was Cordell, who was called the Master of Fire and the iron-blooded wizard.
‘He looks friendly.’
Cordell’s appearance was smooth. But why is it called an iron-blooded wizard?
‘Well, one shouldn’t judge a person by their appearance.’
It was very foolish to judge people by their appearance.
“Who is that?”
Cordell received the wizard’s greeting and asked the wizard.
“He said that he had come to see the Leader.”
The wizard quickly answered Cordell’s question.
“So you just brought him?”
“Yes, he had the proof.”
Cordell looked at Soo-hyuk with a slightly unexpected expression.
Soo-hyuk did not avoid Cordell’s gaze and looked face to face.
While watching Soo-hyuk, Cordell bowed his head and said hello.
In response to Cordell’s greeting, Soo-hyuk also bowed his head slightly.
“I’m Cordell, a Chief of the Tower of Fire.”
After receiving such greetings, Cordell introduced himself.
Then he looked at Soo-hyuk. Soo-hyuk could see why Cordell introduced himself from Cordell’s gaze.
It was clear that he introduced himself to understand who Soo-hyuk was.
“I’m Soo-hyuk from the Tower of Poison.”
He came because Fabian told him to go anyway. It’s not a bad thing, and there’s no problem with introducing him in this manner.
The moment Soo-hyuk introduced himself, Cordell’s face changed.
It was just for a moment, but surprise and embarrassment appeared and then disappeared.
“So, you were Soo-hyuk.”
Cordell said with a nod.
“From now on, I will guide you.”
When he finished talking, Cordell looked at the wizard.
The wizard, received the look, greeted Soo-hyuk and Cordell, and then went back down the road he had come from.
So the wizard descended and Cordell took the lead and began to walk.
Soo-hyuk thought, walking behind Cordell.
Cordell didn’t say a word, just walking silently.
Ttog ….. Ttog….
Fortunately, the silence did not last long. Soon, Cordell stopped at a door, knocked and opened his mouth.
‘Are you there?’
They seemed to have arrived at the destination, Brinis’ room.
And Soo-hyuk’s prediction was exactly right.
“Brinis. A guest has come.”
It was Brinis’ room.
A voice from the inside answered Cordell’s call.
The owner of the voice was clearly Brinis.
Soon after, they heard a dampened voice and the footsteps got closer, and then the door opened and Brinis, the owner of the room, appeared.
As soon as he saw Brinis, Soo-hyuk tilted his head.
‘I think she looks familiar.’
He felt like he saw her somewhere.
‘Is it just a feeling?’
Did he mistake her for someone else?
It was then.
“… … Soo-hyuk!”
Brinis called Soo-hyuk.
‘She knows me?’
Soo-hyuk panicked when his name left Brinis’ mouth. It was not because he knew her name, but because he knew her. Cordell didn’t tell her, so how would Brinis know? Of course she know the name. But how did she know how he looked?
‘I think I know from where I know her…’
It was clear where he saw her. It was obvious that they have encountered each other.
A memory suddenly resurfaced and Soo-hyuk opened his mouth looking at Brinis.
“Long time no see.”
‘That’s the woman I saw when I was drinking poison back then.’
She was the woman he saw when he went to Fabian to drink poison because of the <’30 days’ journey> quest.
He couldn’t even imagine,…
‘To think she was the Lord of the Tower of Fire.’
“Oh! Do you remember me?”
Brinis beamed a wide smile at Soo-hyuk’s words.
“Yes, I remember.”
“Oh my God. I just saw you for a while. You have a very good memory!”
It was then.
“Then I will be excused……”
Said Cordell. And after greeting, he went back the way he came.
“Shall we go inside and talk?”, said Brinis after Cordell disappeared.
Soo-hyuk responded to Brinis and entered the room.
‘Is it because the tower of fire?’
The moment Soo-hyuk entered the room, he felt the heat. Was it because of the Tower of Fire?
Brinis offered Soo-hyuk a seat. Then Brinis sat on the other side and asked, holding the teacup on the desk.
“Would you like tea?”
“No, thank you. I’m fine.”
Soo-hyuk responded with a smile and opened the inventory.
“And here… …
And he took out Fabian’s letter and Brinis’ token from his inventory.
“The leader of Tower told me to deliver it.”
“You can keep the token!”
Brinis returned the token to Soo-hyuk and took up Fabian’s letter. Then she opened the letter and began to read it.
Brinis, who was reading the letter, made a strange snort.
Soo-hyuk was puzzled by Brinis’ snort.
‘What does it say?’
What on earth is it written in it so that she would react like that?
‘Is it a love letter?’
‘No, if it’s a love letter, he wouldn’t have sent it through me.’
It couldn’t be a love letter. If it was a love letter, it wasn’t necessary to convey it through Soo-hyuk. The letter must have been related to Soo-hyuk.
‘But why… …
So he got a little nervous. Why did Brinis make a weird snort?
Soon after, Brinis dropped showing that she finished reading it.
[You have completed the quest “Brinis, the Tower of Fire”.]
And at that moment, a message appeared. It was a quest completion message.
“Here you go! Would you like to read it?”
Brinis handed over the letter.
Soo-hyuk, who was looking at the message, asked Brinis. The letter was sent from Fabian to Brinis. But why do she ask me to read it?
“Yes, I think you should see it.”
At the words of Brinis that followed, Soo-hyuk accepted letter and began reading it with a confused expression.
I don’t know when Soo-hyuk will arrive with this letter.
But it shouldn’t have taken too long.
I don’t think your mind has changed.
If Soo-hyuk comes, please take care of him.
I don’t wish to drag this out too much.
Soo-hyuk is a real genius.
Any spell you show, he probably will understand them all.
Soo-hyuk was embarrassed after checking what was written in the letter.
‘To learn magic?’
In the letter, Fabian’s request was written. The request to teach Soo-hyuk magic was not explicitly mentioned in the letter, but it seemed that there was an agreement with Brinis.
Soo-hyuk put down the letter. And looked at Brinis. Brinis was looking at Soo-hyuk with a bright expression.
“It seems like you have to learn magic.”
“Yes, I agreed with Fabian to teach Soo-hyuk fire magic. But the most important thing is Soo-hyuk’s teacher. What would you do?”
As soon as Brinis finished speaking, a quest appeared in front of Soo-hyuk’s eyes.
After making an appointment with Fabian, Brinis thought to teach you the magic. But the most important thing is your teacher. Choose whether to learn fire magic from Brinis or not!
Quest Reward: ???
When you accept the quest, your intimacy with Brinis increases.
If the quest is rejected, the intimacy with Brinis increases.
It was a quest to choose whether to learn fire magic from Brinis.
However, after seeing the quest, Soo-hyuk was confused.
‘Why do both options increase intimacy?’
It was because of what would happen upon acceptance and rejection that existed under the quest reward.
‘It’s okay, of course I can do it.’
When he accepted the quest, his intimacy with Brinis increases.
This could be taken for granted.
‘Isn’t it supposed to be rejected?’
However, refusal also increases the affinity with Brinis. If he refused, logically his intimacy should decrease. But why is it increasing?
‘No, if rejection rises, acceptance declines.’
Of course, among quests, there were quests that increase intimacy when rejected and lose intimacy when accepted.
However, whether he accepted or rejected this quest, their intimacy increases. It was a quest that did not follow common sense.
‘But that’s a problem.’
Soo-hyuk was worried. It wasn’t because of intimacy. Honestly, the intimacy did not decline, and there was no need to worry about increasing.
‘How does she teach magic?’
The reason he was worried was because of the way. In what way is Brinis going to teach him magic?
‘Will she just give me a book?’
Like Fabian, should him give a book and learn it himself?
‘Can she give me the ingredients too?’
Then, would he get the ingredients?
‘Ah, it’s not my tower.’
However, it was unlikely that they would provide the ingredients. Soo-hyuk isn’t even a member of the Fire Tower, so why should they provide the materials?
‘No, there is a possibility to give me an item because she said that she teaches me the magic.’ Isn’t there a way to teach you magic, but without materials?
Soo-hyuk soon let go of his worries, reflected, and gave an answer to Brinis, who was waiting.
“I want to learn from you.”
[You have accepted the quest ‘Brinis’ Proposal’.]
[Intimacy with Brinis, the Lord of the Tower of Fire increases.]
[You have completed the quest ‘Brinis’ Proposal’.]
As he answered, messages appeared one after another.
“That’s fortunate! What if I refused?”
Brinis said with a smile at Soo-hyuk’s answer.
“Then, shall we learn magic right away?”
“Yes. But how should I learn…”
“I heard that you understand magic by reading about it.”
Soo-hyuk questioned Brinis’ words and thought.
‘What are you talking about?’
‘Is it because of that at the time?’
Soo-hyuk searched his memories and recalled what had happened with Fabian.
Fabian, who gave the magic book at the time. Soo-hyuk visited Fabian within a few hours and delivered a memo with necessary items.
Perhaps that is why Brinis seemed to be saying this.
“I have already heard it! You just read the book and cast most of the magic yourself!”
Soo-hyuk’s idea was correct.
“Here you go!”
Brinis smiled and gave something out.
Soo-hyuk lowered his head and saw what Brinis was holding.
It was a book that Brinis handed him. It was also an extremely thick book. And the symbol of the tower of fire was drawn on the cover.
The moment he would read the book. It was like a situation in the past and felt like déjà vu.
“If you have any problems or have any questions, please tell me. And I will prepare all the necessary ingredients, so please feel free to tell me.”
When she finished speaking, Brinis smiled.
And at the words of Brinis, Soo-hyuk was forced to laugh.
