As soon as we moved closer to the camp, we found out that it was as bustling as a big market in the shopping season. Various warriors of different class and living were wandering around, and some executives were leading some group in just like the situation we were in.
Soon enough, we were led to two tents for rest before being notified by the escort that we would need to attend a meeting tomorrow at the main tent.
I took this chance to get some sleep since my schedule would be quite full if my plan was to actually work.
Waking up early in the morning after sleeping for more than 15 hours, I looked at Tie who was still sleeping and snoring before adjusting myself to a cross-legged position and repeat the same thing that I did for the last week.
Spreading my currently limited perception to sense lightning and thunder elements, using the elements that already resided in me to attract them to my body, the life-like elements then started to surge slowly into my body.
I then checked my progress for the last week…
[ Dual-element: 2.1 ( Lightning, Thunder ) ]
As I didn't know How much points further were needed to reach the next layer, I was unsure if my progress was that great, mostly due to the elemental conductor being the decider, as I had my whole body as a conductor, I didn't have high hopes of reaching the next layer fast enough.
Having more points as the limit in the second stage wasn't actually a bad thing, the higher the points, the more power the user would be able to control later on, and didn't I already have a huge advantage?
I was able to use two different elements to raise the progress for them simultaneously, making me get double the progress within the same time, so I would be considered greedy if I was still unsatisfied.
As I already hastened the process of the first stage, I decided to take it a bit slower in this stage, so as not to get a shaky elemental control later on, I did my best to familiarize the elements with my body so as it would become almost like an extension of my own body.
3 hours later, I stopped suddenly, as I felt that someone was approaching our tent. It turned out to be Tia who came to notify us that the meeting would be held within 30 minutes (yes, I found out that they used almost the same time system as we used in earth).
However, as I was about to reply, she realized that her brother was still deep asleep, she ended up giving him a big punch on the head, waking him up forcefully.
"Come on sis! You don't have to do this every time…"
"I wouldn't have done so, if you weren't always sleeping like a log!"
After settling their argument, which seemed to be some sort of daily routine. We walked up to a temporary water source to wash our faces and get ready for the meeting.
After finishing our preparation, we headed towards the main tent, I looked at Grace who seemed to be holding some apprehensions, before focusing head on without paying any heed. After all, to me, this wasn't something to worry about, this was just the first step of my plan…..
I unconsciously grew a cold smile on my face, before realizing and changing it back to my usual poker face momentarily.
Meanwhile, Grace who walked the closest to Ian suddenly shuddered for no reason(?)
- 4th and last chapter of the day! Hope you enjoyed our usual mass release.
- side question: what do you guys think about changing 'cross-legged' into lotus position like it's mentioned in most other novels? or do I just keep it like it is?
