I go into the bathroom. After taking off my clothes, I straight into the bathtub.
Hot steam rises from the water in the bathtub. The moment I entered the bathtub, a comfortable feeling penetrated the pores of my skin. My previously tense muscles immediately went limp.
”I never thought I could feel this kind of luxury. ”
Leaning back in the bathtub, I enjoyed the sensation I was currently feeling. If I calculate from my previous life, its been almost 11 years since I haven had a hot shower.
My stomach suddenly starts to hurt. I believe this must be the effect of the poison Baron Warwick gave.
”He took me out to eat with him. Was he trying to test if the poison he gave was working? ”
I want to laugh. To be honest, what Baron Warwick did seems like childs play to me now.
”Does he want an excuse to get me kicked out of this house? Like Ill just let him be. ”
After all, I still need the identity of a noble. First of all, I have to get rid of this poison in my body.
I took a cross-legged sitting position in the bathtub. I closed my eyes and calmed the rhythm of my breathing.
I focused my thoughts on the internal organs of my body. Its like diving into the deep sea. I continue to focus so that there are no deviations.
It took a lot of time and effort for me to feel the mana in my body. As you know, this body is like a trash body that has no potential to possess any mana at all.
Even so, I still believe I can do it.
The spiritual energy that doesn exist on Earth. The energy that previously existed only in the fictional world, is now all around me.
Among all the uses of mana known to the general public, there were still many secrets about mana energy. In short, the use of mana was to manifest magical events.
An example; manifesting fire according to a Magicians will, breaking rocks with a fist for a Warrior, and other uses.
They are called Mana Users. In this world, just 1:100 people can use Mana. Though thats just my rough guess.
Usually, magicians are born from among the nobility, while warriors are from among the common people.
However, there is one condition to be able to use Mana, which is to have a Mana Core. And this is where my problem lies because the body I have now doesn have a Mana Core.
To common knowledge in this world, one could only use mana if they had a Mana Core, that is, a place to store Mana, but they were all actually wrong.
The reason is simple. Actually, everyone in this world has Mana. Yes, indeed, everyone has mana, but not everyone can use it.
The conditions for using Mana are, that you must survive life and death situations several times, or if you are not lucky, you must try half to death hundreds of times.
In my previous life, I was busy surviving. In order to survive, I train hard to become strong. In the process, I had to fight in various places.
Because of that, I can use Mana.
Of course, the most important factor was that I had met Cornelia. She is the one who taught me everything. Whether its a matter of which control, which circulation, or other things.
What I learned in my previous life is still stuck in my brain. So, even though my body became weak again, I still remembered how to manipulate mana, how I felt when I moved mana, and so on.
Now, Im back to focusing on eliminating the effects of the poison on my body.
In short, the method I use requires you to attract and collect the mana that you can accumulate in your body.
Then use that mana energy to flush out the harmful substances in your body. Lets just say you ordered the white blood cells to fight the poison.
However, it was very difficult. It may feel like diving into the deep sea without using anything, while the target you have to aim for is a large shark.
Not only you can not use force, but you have to herd and make the shark obey your orders.
Drops of sweat began to come out of the pores of my skin. Not because of the hot steam in the bathtub, but because of the tension I kept feeling.
The breath that came out of my nose was calm at first, but now it slowly became heavy.
After some time, I slowly open my eyes.
Suddenly, the liquid that was in my stomach started to rise to my throat. I immediately threw up the liquid on the bathroom floor.
What I expelled was all the poison that had been dispersed in my body.
After all the liquid came out, I wiped my mouth. Only then did I see the message window.
[Detoxification was successful.]
[Please choose a name for your skill!]
I didn expect that I would be able to instantly cleanse the poison in my body. I thought it would take a few days.
Is this World System helps? Either that will be a good thing or a bad thing. As for names, since Im not good at naming, Ill name it, ”Poison Resistance. ”
[The skill has been named Poison Resistance.]
I immediately rushed, as soon as I finished showering, I got out of the bathroom.
Unfortunately, the clothes in my closet are the ones Ive worn for several years. Nothing new.
”Well, whatever. ”
I picked up a random black outfit that looked better than the rest. Although its a bit difficult, I can finally wear this complicated nobles clothes
Then I stood in front of the mirror.
Now the smell of alcohol is no longer in my body. The dark wrinkles are no longer under my eyes. Nor was there any sign on my face that I had drunk alcohol. My mind doesn spin anymore either.
It felt strange to see myself suddenly looking younger than usual.
Unknowingly time passed quickly. After knocking on the door, then a servant came in after I gave the order to enter.
”I will escort Young Master to the dining room. ”
He was the servant I had beaten before. His face was still swollen. I could only cover my mouth so as not to burst out laughing. The important thing is that he is more polite to me now.
”Yes. Lead the way. ”
He walked in front of me and I followed him like a duckling. That way, I don have to be afraid of getting lost because I kind of forgot the layout of the rooms in this mansion.
On the way, I can see several maids on duty cleaning the furniture or doing other work. When I was passing, they saw me and stopped their activity.
Dimly, I could hear the voices of people who seemed to be gossiping about something. They whispered in each others ears while looking at me.
[You activated the Skill The Five Sense – Sense of Hearing.]
Hmm? Why is it suddenly so easy to use skills?
When the system message appeared, I circulated the mana in my body. Somehow it feels so much easier. Is this another help from the system?
When I use The Five Sense skill to improve my hearing, I can hear their voices.
”Hey, isn that Young Master Mesties? ”
”It seems so. Will there be a storm today? I heard hes shutting himself down because he doesn have a mana core yet. ”
”Well, isn that a natural thing? People say, if a nobles son doesn have a mana core, then hes called family trash. But what does that have to do with storms? ”
”Stupid, thats just a figure of speech! ”
”But thats also weird. Why did he suddenly come out after so many years of depression? Why did he come out well dressed. ”
”That servant in front of Young Master Mesties is Gil? Why is his face so swollen? ”
”Well, I don care. The important thing is that I get a salary. ”
And so on… Some saw the amazement on their faces at my appearance, but some just insulted me—I mean, this body.
Well, since what they insulted was the behavior this body did before, rather than myself, I ignored them. But for some reason there was a little anger ignited in my heart.
After I glanced at the maids one by one, as if I shot a laser out of my eyes, the maids started to turn their faces away.
They started pretending to continue their activities; cleaning furniture, sweeping, or running away. Surprisingly, some of the maids kept staring at my face without blinking. Aren they afraid that their eyes will fall?
All the maids in this mansion were from knight families that were under the auspices of the Warwick Family. All that so that there are no spies from other nobles.
But… Mana core, huh. I thought about what they just said.
Indeed, those who have mana cores, are the ones who are easier to cultivate, store or manipulate mana.
It would be a lie if I answered that I don want to have one, but I am still very much aware that it is impossible.
Well, theres no point in me continuing to hope for the impossible like that. Im glad that the realistic nature I had on earth still exists today.
”Young master, we have arrived, ” Gil told me that.
Now, I know that his name is Gil, from the maids words. After I nodded slowly. Then he slowly opened the door.
As soon as this door in front of me opens, I will meet the entire Warwick family members.
