#When I returned, my family was ruined (12)
[Show your talent.]
A huge amount of fire energy flowed from the essence of fire on my wrist.
He appeared to be handling firearms freely. There was interest in the Fire Lord’s voice.
[For a human, you have quite a bit of talent. The body is truly unsightly…]
“Do you pass?”
If you were a blood relative of a family, you could receive a blessing from a spirit appropriate to your level depending on your talent.
Even if Ethan was a top-level spirit, his talent for fire was not at the right level to give a blessing.
As a monarch, he had to be at least worthy of the rank.
[okay. I passed.]
The huge fireball gradually took shape. It was the appearance of a girl whose whole body was on fire.
[I, Lorotia, the Lord of Fire, will personally hand over the blessing.]
Isn’t the name quite cute, considering the voice is full of tremendous power?
I almost burst out laughing. The fire girl approached Ethan.
[Are those humans also gathered to receive blessings?]
[Then, let’s give the authors a gift as well. That would be better than the blessings of the subjects.]
What Lorotia said was right.
A single breath from a spirit lord would be much better than a blessing from a high-level spirit with all its might.
It was great luck for Elena and Myers.
[Starting with you.]
Lorotia turned into tens of thousands of embers and burrowed into his entire body. From head to toe.
The embers were being drawn in as if they were being drawn by a magnet.
I felt an incredible amount of heat throughout my body. It felt as if the inside was being cooked raw.
Even the blessing of Ignis, the highest spirit, did not show this level of heat.
‘Maybe it’s because he’s a spirit lord, but he’s different.’
Every time the energy of fire circulated through the bloodstream, the accumulated waste was completely removed.
The efficacy did not end there.
This is because fire at its peak was purifying and strengthening the blood vessels.
It was an incredible opportunity.
Smoke rose from Ethan’s body. He practiced breathing techniques with his eyes closed. The breath of black flame began to control the fire inside.
The fire moving around inside my body was the spirit lord’s energy itself. Maybe that’s why it was quite difficult to control.
It was that moment.
[Human, are you trying to control me?]
“I think there is a more efficient way to move than this.”
The Spirit Lord was simply purifying his body by circling the large blood vessel.
Blessing of fire.
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
It was a waste to waste that opportunity like this.
‘If the Spirit Lord’s power and my control power come together…’
I would be able to improve my body much more efficiently than this.
As soon as Ethan finished speaking, loud laughter echoed throughout the temple.
[Hahaha! Give it a try. If you can control even a small spark, I will accept it. Of course, it would be impossible.]
“If you can do it, be completely under my control.”
Ethan smiled quietly.
After reaching that level, when I faced the dragonlord. At that time, Ethan had such strong control that he could even move these intense flames at will.
The body was in bad shape, but the experience itself was the same.
As the Black Flame’s breath continued, the spirit lord’s flame began to shake little by little. Lorotia felt her control shake and was startled.
‘How about a human subject!’
The bet just now was just for fun.
But it seemed like I could really lose the bet if I was not careful.
If you lose the bet with humans…
you will be ridiculed by other monarchs for the rest of your life.
Lorotia’s face hardened and she began to concentrate in earnest.
A power struggle between the two continued.
At some point, Lorotia felt that the embers were back under her control and whispered quietly.
[You look like you’re having a hard time, human.]
Ethan closed his eyes and didn’t even move a muscle.
[Have you given up? It’s boring.]
It was a triumphant voice.
He focused all his attention on a small spark.
Now that he was letting his guard down, it was the perfect time to take control away from him. In an instant, control of one of the embers was taken over.
Although it is only one of tens of thousands, it brought with it the flame that the Fire Lord ruled over.
It was a perplexing voice.
Lorothia could not hide her embarrassment. It was the first time in his life that he descended on humans and lost control of the fire he controlled.
“I think I did it.”
“I shouldn’t have let my guard down like that.”
“Keep your promise, Spirit Lord.”
[I will protect it!]
Soon, tens of thousands of embers began to move according to Ethan’s will.
In addition to the large blood vessels, there were also very small blood vessels in the human body.
Their number was such that even Ethan could not easily identify them.
‘It wasn’t until I became a transcendent that I realized it.’
It is important to train the visible blood vessels, but it is also very important to train the subtle blood vessels that are not visible to the eye.
The monarch’s flame would be able to completely purify even these subtle blood vessels. Ethan began to control the flames at will.
* * *
[Are you done?]
“Just a little more.”
[It’s already been two hours since you said that! There is not much time left for the descent!]
“Wait. “It’ll be over soon.”
Using Lorotia, he purified even the smallest blood vessels and was making the most of his money.
Then Ethan nodded.
‘This is enough.’
Among the blood vessels in the body, 90% of the abnormalities were purified.
In my past life, this was something I was only able to do after achieving transcendence.
The best body on the continent was born from the best equipment on the continent.
It was a tremendous achievement.
[Whoa. I can’t believe I’m under the control of humans. It feels really strange. By the way, I really got my money’s worth.]
It was just as Lorotia said.
Not only did he use his enormous power to infuse heat into the essence on his wrist, but he also implanted new essence of fire into his arm.
“There are still two more people left.”
[You really treat yourself well, human.]
The Fire Lord grumbled and approached Myers.
[Know with glory, kin of the Ardan family.]
Breath filled with anger began to envelop Myers’ body.
[Girl, you too, come here.]
Elena cautiously approached Lorotia. Soon, like Myers, she too was caught up in the breath of fire.
[It’s a simple breath, but it’s still better than Ignis’ blessing.]
The monarch said triumphantly.
That’s certainly how Ethan saw it.
‘There was a huge gap between the monarch and the highest level spirit.’
Even if dozens of Ignis gathered together, it seemed like they wouldn’t even be able to make a scratch on the Fire Lord. That is how powerful Lorotia was.
[It was fun. See you again, child of fire.]
Lorotia was sucked in between the passages.
The passage closed in an instant.
Myers and Elena were still engulfed in flames.
Not only are the muscles and bones changing little by little, but all the impurities in the body are being burned off.
‘I guess I’ll have to wait a bit.’
Ethan quietly sat cross-legged.
‘oh my god.’
Hans, who watched this scene from beginning to end, gaped.
A spirit lord!
It was a name that appeared only occasionally in very old literature.
In fact, it is a being that is known to have never descended into reality since hundreds of years ago.
That such a being would bestow blessings on the direct descendants of the dukedom?
Hans immediately realized how important a tradition the Fire Festival was. If the subordinates knew this information, they would have searched the temple with their eyes rolled back.
Of course, even if it were, it would have been a useless act since only the immediate descendants of the family could receive the blessing.
‘He’s already a monster-like archduke…’
From today on, it seemed like he couldn’t even be described with the word monster.
Unlike his other brothers, who could barely breathe once, the Archduke held the Fire Lord within him for nearly two hours.
‘The reason they brought me here was to show you a scene like this.’
A being that can summon the Fire Lord. There was no doubt that he was trying to get himself on his side by revealing it.
‘I’ll take this to my grave.’
From the Memory Crystal Ball to the Festival of Fire.
First of all, he decided to keep these two memories only in his head for the rest of his life.
Because if I let it out my mouth, my throat would be the first to fly off.
* * *
It was about an hour later that the two people’s awakening ended.
The two people looked at each other’s faces and showed surprised expressions.
This is because many aspects of its appearance have changed.
Perhaps because of the softer skin, not only did the impression itself become brighter, but all the remaining flab on the body disappeared, and the skeleton became much more attractive than before.
It was an amazing change.
Ethan also went through such changes.
Not only had his body, which had been skinny and ungainly skeletal due to long years in bed, changed dramatically, but his once sharp expression had also softened to the fullest thanks to blessings.
“wow. Brother, you’re much better than before, aren’t you? “My sister has also become very pretty.”
“The Fire Lord is truly amazing.”
It was true that he was a great being.
Even in my past life, there was not a single direct descendant of my family who summoned the Fire Lord.
Even the matriarchs who were considered to have the greatest talent in history were limited in their ability to summon Ignis, the highest spirit.
Even Ethan would not have been able to summon the Fire Lord if he had not returned to the past with the experience of being a transcendent.
It was an incredible opportunity.
A rumbling sound echoed from Myers’ stomach.
He looked at Ethan.
“Do you really feel this hungry when you receive a blessing?”
“It’s like the body has been reborn. “It’s normal.”
“Then let’s eat first. how is it?”
“Is there somewhere else to eat outside?”
Originally, after receiving the blessing of fire, one was bound to suffer from extreme hunger.
Since it is not possible to eat in a sacred temple, family members have created a space where they can eat meals for such occasions.
It was a place called a shelter.
A shelter deep in the mountains.
It is a place where meals are prepared and at the same time serves as a warehouse to store by-products obtained from monsters.
‘If I do well, I might be able to obtain by-products of monsters.’
The monsters and beasts that appeared here were of a fairly high level. As such, the value of by-products was also high.
If I did well, I might be able to obtain various items.
Myers was delighted when I explained the shelter.
“Hey. Was there such a space? Then the chamberlain can serve more delicious food. let’s go!”
He walked out of the temple triumphantly. Ethan, grinning, followed suit. It wasn’t long before we arrived at the shelter.
‘It’s just like I remembered.’
A small building made of logs. At first glance, it felt like a temporary shelter for hunters to stop by.
“Please wait a moment.”
Hans entered first, opened the window, and began to diligently ventilate the dust.
“Cough! “I think you can come in now!”
Three people entered the temporary shelter. Although it was a building that looked like it had been abandoned for a long time, it had everything it needed.
“I will prepare the meal soon.”
The animal meat I had obtained so far was pouring out of my suitcase.
After eating a lot of food.
Ethan looked back and forth between Hans and Myers. I made a quiet gesture and they quickly came running towards me.
“Did you call the Archduke?”
“Take your bag and follow me. Myers, you come too.”
Ethan came out and began looking around the outskirts of the shelter.
‘Are we here?’
The moment you step on the protruding part with your foot.
The floor door opened with the sound of something loosening.
I saw stairs leading down.
It was a by-product warehouse that existed in a temporary shelter.
My memory was vague, but I was glad it turned out right.
The three people started going down the stairs.
