Chapter 66 - The Wind of Change Blows - Part 2



When I woke up, it was the hall of my previous life. In the endless hallway, the doors leading to the space where the previous life was sleeping were closely intertwined.


Will there ever be a day when all these countless visits will be opened? I thought for a moment, but then shook my head.


'Now is the time to solve the problems in front of us.'


As always, unlike the other locked places, the door in front of me was not locked.


The engraved nickname was 'Maniac who touched the truth'. Judging by the fact that Deus even interfered with fate and summoned him here, it seemed that he had a way to solve this danger.


'Gazah!'


opened the door The inside was spacious, and it looked like a typical mage scholar's workshop.


But it was hard to get the feeling that it was never well organized.


Glass bottles of unidentified liquids were scattered on the wide desk under the dimly lit lighting.


There were several magic circles drawn in red liquid on the wall, but it seemed to be blood. Of course, I didn't know what blood it was.


"welcome."


Someone appeared in the dark. He was skinny, with silver hair that came down to his shoulders, and he was wearing round glasses.


The overall look was inconclusive. It's like staying up all night.


"My name is Gildre."


The man bowed slightly to greet him and said his name. Hyunjun closed the door and moved slowly.


"I was watching you."


Gildre raised the corners of his lips slightly and said. It was a line I heard a lot while visiting the 'Room of a Past Life' many times, but this time it was a little different.


It just felt terrifying. It was a different atmosphere from Withered Miller or Carthage.


It even felt more dangerous than the Goddess.


"Then you must be well aware of the situation I am in."


"of course. It is a state of mind contamination by the evil magic that flowed out when the 'Black Magic Stone' was damaged."


Seeing him recite the situation piece by piece in a calm voice, Hyun-Jun was sure of it.


This 'past life' in front of you knows about the 'Black Magic Stone'. That too a lot.


"You know about the Black Magic Stone."


At Hyeonjun's question, Gildre nodded with a meaningful smile on his lips.


"I know a lot about you. But that too is just the tip of the iceberg."


"What the hell is going on… … Do you know?"


I saw the transformation of a person into a monster with my own two eyes.


And when the monster was killed, a black magic stone came out. It was impossible to see that the series of circumstances were completely unrelated.


Even a fool would know that the Black Magic Stone and the monster are related.


Judging from what Gildre knew about the Black Magic Stone and what Carthage, the Withered Miller, and the messenger god had told him to prepare for something, it was not difficult to guess that this incident was related to a 'past life'.


"I am unable to explain the details at this time."


Gildre said with a look of regret.


"Neither the sergeant major nor the withered miller nor any other in previous lives have ever given me a detailed explanation. Who the hell are 'they' and what is 'the day'?"


Hyunjun protested in a harsh voice. In the past, someone in a previous life tried to explain and closed their mouth.


In order to respond to the unknown danger, information was needed, but as I kept my mouth shut, the feeling of frustration intensified.


"It's not that I can't, it's that I can't. We have a 'ban'. I hope you understand that I cannot explain the details. We, too, want to give you information about 'them' right away."


Gildre's voice was filled with emotions such as anger and frustration. He also didn't seem to like the current situation with the ban.


"What I can explain now is that everything related to the Black Magic Stone is just the beginning."


"Then I will change the question. Do you know my situation?"


"of course. I was just watching you."


"Then I would appreciate it if you could teach me how to get out of mental contamination."


There was annoyance in his voice because things were not going well, but Gildre opened his mouth without a sign of displeasure.


"After long research, I succeeded in crafting a magic formula that can free me from the mental contamination of the Black Magic Stone."


"Quickly, let me know."


"this… … I said that it was definitely the result of a long study, but seeing it so proudly without changing your expression, your conscience is very questionable."


Gildre sighed and shook his head. But he had a smile on his lips.


"But it is clear that you are our reincarnation, and that you are the 'qualified person'… … I am in a position to tell you."


He said, waving his arms in an exaggerated gesture like a theater actor. At first glance, he looked like a man drenched in madness.


'This is absolutely crazy.'


A sigh came out, but Gildre knew the trick to overcoming mental pollution, so he didn't dare to say it.


"Then let me know."


"Don't think too hastily. After all, time doesn't pass here, and even if you teach me how to do it right now, there's nothing you can do about it. Because it's too high a level for you, not a mage scholar, to handle."


"It doesn't mean you have to learn how to drink from scratch, right?"


When I asked the question carefully, Gildre smiled instead of answering.


Hyun-joon felt as if he had been hit hard in the head, so he stared blankly at him.


"Don't worry too much. I don't expect that much understanding. I'm just going to lock you in here until you have the bare minimum skills to handle the magic."


If you hear it wrong, it might sound like you're going to get revenge, but Hyun-jun knew that wasn't the case.


It used to be an ignorant method to repeat until you master the technique, but now you are used to it.


'The effect is certain.'


This is a training method that can only be done in the room of a previous life where time does not flow. I wanted to avoid it if possible, but if there was no other way, I had no choice but to follow.


I didn't want to die in vain or become a puppet.


"Let's start right away."


Hyunjun said. I have no intention of delaying. It's like an unavoidable fate.


"good. Come this way."


Gildre moved to the front of the bookcase in the corner of the workshop. As Hyun-jun followed, he took a book from the bookshelf and placed it on the desk next to him.


He didn't stop until he built a tower on his desk.


"The first thing I do is read."


"How many times can I read it?"


"Read it over and over until you understand."


After graduating from school, you will encounter the indoctrinated education that you thought you were separated from forever.


Hyunjun sighed, but soon accepted the current situation and sat down on a chair and opened the book. Then Gildre also pulled up a nearby chair and sat down.


"I'm not going to tell you to study on your own. If you are confused while reading, feel free to ask any questions."


It was nice to hear. Hyeon-jun, who had a lot of self-study experience because he couldn't afford to go to an academy, knew how difficult it was.


I thought that having a reliable tutor would be of great help. Of course, there is an atmosphere that is somehow dangerous, though.


"I will leave it up to you."


"It is me."


Hyun-jun bowed his head slightly, and Gildre answered with a meaningful smile.


And the dreadful study of water lilies began. It wasn't easy. Magical hunters often read magic books or study magic because their understanding of magic meant improving their combat power, but Hyunjun was a combat hunter. Magic and magic were strangers.


"difficult… … ."


He complained, but the only one who listened was Gildre, who was smiling with a sinister expression on his face.


Of course, he wasn't sure if he was a 'human'. There is no guarantee that there will be only 'humans' in a previous life, so I thought that maybe it was a demon.


"I have read them all."


I don't know how long it took. But it was certain that a long time that could not be easily counted had passed.


In the end, Hyun-jun completely understood the contents of the 21 books related to magic theory and magic.


"You read it sooner than I thought."


Gildre said. It was quicker than he expected, and the time it took was by no means small.


If time passed normally, at least several years would have passed.


"Can I tell you how long it took?"


"No, I think it would be better not to know."


Gildre asked if he had read his thoughts by looking at Hyun-jun's expression, but Hyun-jun firmly shook his head.


"What's next?"


I read only the magic book for a period of several years. Tiredness leaked from his voice.


His tone was not good because his mind was exhausted.


"Interpret this rite."


Gildre took out a small stone and handed it to him. At first glance, it looked like an ordinary stone, but in the eyes of Hyun-jun, who perfectly understood the 21 high-level magic books, he could see a complex entanglement of magic.


"You want me to interpret all of this?"


"Yes. It just takes a long time... … It will not be difficult."


I was at a loss for words at the sophistry.


"Are you going to keep looking at me?"


"No, we have to hurry."


Hyeonjun shook his head and picked up a pebble with a rite engraved on it. And the analysis began.


This time, I counted the passage of time up to one month, but after that I gave up.


The workshop, which was closed without even a window, felt close to a room of time and spirit.


'It's a horribly complicated recipe.'


It was a fact that I knew because I had read the magic book to death.


'How the hell did you engrave? … ?'


The more I analyzed, the more I questioned and admired. It seemed to have been passed through the hands of a very high-level mage. maybe it's gildre


Time does not pass in the "Room of a Past Life", but there is no need for sleep.


Even the consumption of mental power is recovered to some extent by the regenerative power of this special space. So Hyun-jun was able to focus on analysis without a break.


"Are there any clues?"


The voice was dry enough to crack. Even if it wasn't, it was a natural phenomenon as years had passed.


Even if there was a regeneration function that the previous life room had, it was gradually limited.


"There is no need to delve into the beginning of the procedure. Rather, it may be helpful to target the areas with the most resistance."


Hyunjun followed Gildre's words. Gildre explained briefly, but it was also difficult.


After a difficult process, he succeeded in a complete analysis of the procedure through the part with the strongest resistance. Gildre, who was watching the process from the side, was astonished.


"Even if I had provided a clue, I didn't expect it to be this big. That's great."


He didn't praise him for a long time, but he could tell that Gildre was excited.


'Maybe we can win this time.'


Gildre thought. He tried to hide his expression, but he couldn't stop the smile on his lips.


"Now teach me how to drink."


"It is not difficult."


It didn't take long to learn the drink. The process of increasing the skill, mana management, and understanding to use the spell was difficult, though.


"'Today' ends here."


"thanked."


"Someday I will see you again."


Gildre waved his hand. Receiving him off, Hyun-jun left the room of his previous life.


And when I opened my eyes again, it was in the middle of unpleasant magic, and a large number of armed personnel wearing masks were approaching.
