Javelin and Illina led Bloed's group towards a beautiful mansion near the pyramid.
In the way, Liu Ying could not help but speak up.
"… Javelin, why does it seem that your father is not very happy about seeing you or the prince?"
Javelin smiled wryly. "Well, my father is usually like that. Besides… The prince almost caused an international incident that could have created a war. As for me… I ran away from home a few years ago, so my father is not exactly happy with me."
"Oh? I'm sorry, I did not know…"
"It doesn't matter." Javelin shook his head nonchalantly. "Anyway, we are here." He then pointed to a beautiful mansion in front of them. "You are our kingdom's guest, so you will be treated like one. Your food and necessities will be supplied by the servants here, and in case you need something, don't hesitate to ask."
"Thank you." Bloed nodded. To be honest, this place was more than he was expecting.
"The servants here will help you with the rest. I now need to report to the king and go through several procedures so I probably will only be able to see you again tomorrow." Javelin smiled apologetically.
"Don't worry about that and do your job." Bloed smiled in understanding.
After Javelin and Illina made sure that everything was alright, they left for the palace (pyramid).
As for Bloed, Liu Ying, and Regina, they spent the rest of the morning organizing their belongings.
When it was noon, the servants of the place served them a very delicious dinner. Regina was a bit dissatisfied by the fact that someone stole her usual duty, but after she tasted the food, her dissatisfaction disappeared completely.
The food was delicious.
Of course, it could not be compared to the food Regina's prepared using more technologically advanced means and better spices, but it had an exotic flavor and foreign texture that surprised the group.
As Bloed expected, Regina stood up just after she finished eating.
"Master, I'll visit the kitchen. I wish to know the ingredients and preparation methods they used here."
Bloed smiled wryly. Well, cooking had become Regina's hobby, so he was not very surprised by her request.
"… Please, be careful of not offending anyone."
"Don't worry, master, I know what to do."
After Regina was gone, Liu Ying looked around hesitantly before looking at Bloed.
"… Hey Bloed, what are you going to do this afternoon? Do you want to spar with me again? I have recently been training a new technique, and I'm confident of my chances this time."
"The technique Regina is teaching you? [Silent Touch] is it…"
"How do you know about it!? No, I already know. Regina told you, right? Sigh... She can't even guard a secret, what kind of friend is her? I was even planning to surprise you with that technique during our spar..."
"… Please, don't use that technique on me. I heard [Silent Touch] is pretty deadly."
"Don't worry, don't worry, I will hold back~ Then, are we going to spar or not?"
Bloed did not know whether to laugh or to cry. Looking at Liu Ying's excited expression, he wanted to agree. But after thinking for a moment, he shook his head. "Let's not. Instead, I think I'll work on your equipment today. It's something related to your direct combat strength and I have been postponing it for a while after all."
"Yes. Liu Liu and the gloves. You just broke through to B-Rank, so I need to calibrate them so they can adjust to your current mana output."
Liu Ying tilted her head in confusion. "… I think they are aright like this."
"Just give them to me," Bloed twitched his lips. "You will realize after the change I finish."
"… I'll guess I'll have to train alone then." Liu Ying shrugged and passed her gloves to Bloed. Afterward, Bloed went to find Regina and asked her to let out his laboratory and the three pets. (Regina had been keeping Tito, Leto, and Liu Ying in her storage device during the trip in the airship).
Tito, Leto, and Liu Liu were pretty happy about seeing the sun after two days. Unfortunately for Liu Liu, its happiness did not last long. Before it could start to play in the grass, the metallic ferret was grabbed by Bloed and taken to the laboratory.
For the rest of the day, Bloed was completely focused on Liu Ying's equipment. He utilized the data he got after Liu Ying's breakthrough and modified Liu Liu and the gloves to better adjust them to Liu Ying's new strength.
In fact, Bloed did not need to do much. The current gloves and Liu Liu were almost perfect for Liu Ying's combat style. So, he instead focused on adjusting the input and output of mana to calibrate it to Liu Ying's new stats.
After almost four hours of work, both pieces of equipment were ready.
Bloed used his eyes to analyze the two pieces of equipment and when he found nothing wrong, he nodded in satisfaction.
Although the basic functions of they remained the same, they were much stronger than before.
The boost to the body Liu Liu offered increased by thirty percent, and its defensive abilities doubled. As for the pair of fingerless gloves, [Framover], Bloed increased their three features (increased impact, increased penetration, and boosted strength), by fifty percent.
Just by virtue of Liu Liu and the gloves, Liu Ying's strength was almost doubled.
"I guess I'm done with this." Bloed smiled and wiped off the sweat on his forehead. Afterward, he cleaned the laboratory and left it.
As soon as Liu Liu left the laboratory, the lively ferret did not hesitate to run towards the courtyard. Bloed smiled wryly, sure it was going to mess with his puppy, Tito.
But when he arrived at the courtyard, Bloed froze.
A gorgeous girl was crouching in the courtyard, playing with Tito and Liu Liu happily.
The girl was extremely beautiful, comparable even to Regina. Her long golden hair fell until her back, and her fluffy fox tail and two long ears twitched softly. Bloed estimated her age around eighteen or nineteen years old, but he was not sure.
When Bloed arrived, the girl instantly detected him. She greeted him elegantly and stood up with Tito on her arms.
"Are you the owner of these creatures? I'm curious, what are them?"
