Chapter 39: The Story of Sagas
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The Turtle Shell Formation was on the verge of shattering.
The eardrums of everyone in the array rang.
It took them a while to react.
All of them started to use various aura skills.
“Aura — Strength!”
“Aura — Defense!”
“Aura — Holy Light!”
Instantly, six to seven auras were used.
Sensing that his strength and defense had increased, Sainz felt that he should be able to fight Mantayu now.
Before leaving the magic circle, Sainz said to Victor, “I’ll leave the matters in the magic circle to you. I’ll go out and fight that monster!”
Victor looked at the determined Sainz and felt tears well up in his eyes, he was lost for words.
In the end, he nodded vigorously.
Without looking back, Sainz immediately walked out of the magic circle.
At this moment, a gray mist came towards him.
He immediately felt a strong wind engulf him.
Seeing him being swept into the mist, everyone started to worry.
In the fog, although Sainz was swept inside, he was not afraid with his strength at peak of rank five.
With a movement of his hand, a ball of light appeared.
He used magic to expel the mist in front of him, revealing a roughly visible distance.
The sound of water splashing against rocks rang in his ears.
He turned around and looked, only to discover that Victor and his team were not behind him.
At the same time, the surroundings changed completely.
A flowing river was not far away from him.
As the Dean of the Magic Academy, almost immediately, he realized that he had been teleported to another area by a powerful existence in the César Forest.
Next, a figure appeared in front of him, it was the possessed Mantayu.
At this moment, the aura on Mantayu’s body was hovering between rank six and seven.
His aura was extremely unstable.
“Eh?” Sainz’s brows twitched.
He guessed that Mantayu’s aura had become extremely unstable due to the teleportation.
But soon, he sneered in his heart.
Although the other party was a peak rank six, he also had the strength of a peak rank five and had experienced countless life and death battles.
These battle experiences gave him enough confidence to not fear Mantayu.
However, in that moment of distraction, Mantayu’s eyes suddenly widened, and he caught the moment when Sainz’s mind wandered.
He let out a stiff growl.
A ball of fire ignited in his hands.
Without another word, a flame dragon shot out!
Sainz’s pupils shrank. He did not expect Mantayu to suddenly attack at this moment.
Caught off guard, he was sent flying by the flame dragon.
Just as he flew backwards, the blue magic robe on his body suddenly lit up with a blue light, weakening the flames a little.
Sainz stood up awkwardly, clutching at the charred spot on his body.
Fortunately, the materials used to make his Advanced Mage robe were all good magic materials.
Otherwise, Mantayu’s attack would have severely injured him.
However, despite no injuries on his body, his hair was all burnt into a curly frizz.
His face was also badly burned. Even if he was cured, he would most likely be disfigured, unless there were superior herbs that could restore his appearance.
Sainz got up from the river and looked at Mantayu coldly.
He directly summoned his life-bound magic weapon from his ring.
A crystal-like staff appeared in his hand.
The staff touched the water surface lightly, and the entire river surface instantly froze into ice.
Even the trees nearby were covered in frost!
Perhaps he had recalled something from a vague memory, but when the crystal staff was revealed, Mantayu suddenly revealed a look of disgust.
Seeing this, Sainz used the spell [Icicle Spike] with his ice staff.
The spell was aimed at Mantayu.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Numerous icicles flew towards Mantayu who waved his dry hand casually.
All the icicles struck the nearby trees instead.
Bang! There was an intense explosion!
Then, he used the same move to counterattack!
Numerous icicle spikes were even larger than the ones Sainz had just launched!
Sainz was filled with despair, but he did not intend to wait for death.
“Secret Technique — Turtle Shell Formation!”
Then, he released the same formation that he had used in the forest just now, only much smaller.
Boom! The first icicle spike hit the Turtle Shell Formation.
It shook like the formation was about to break at any moment.
Following that was the second, third, fourth, and all the way until the fifth icicle before the Turtle Shell Formation broke.
Guh! He spat out a mouthful of blood.
He was knocked to the ground.
Before Sainz could move, a knife was pressed to his neck.
The knife cut through the flesh and landed in the stream nearby, instantly dyeing the water in the stream red.
At the same time, in the forest, Victor led a team of only fifty people.
He returned to the forest without any obstruction.
Jobs, who was at the top of the mountain, had seen everything.
His face was very calm, without any emotion. Then, he returned to the tree hole.
In the tree hole, Jobs looked at the bed made of wood.
Sagas was sitting by the bed, and the clothes beside her lay quietly on the ground with traces of blood.
Jobs looked down at her while she, too, looked up into Jobs’ eyes.
She stared at him for a long time before saying, “You’re shameless!”
Hearing this, Jobs grinned and asked, “What do you want to eat?”
After hearing what Jobs said, she asked, “Was that my father by the stream?”
Jobs was taken aback, clearly not expecting this question.
He asked, “Why are you still asking me if you saw it?”
“I… just… wanted to…” Before she could finish, she covered her face and started sobbing.
Jobs panicked because he had never coaxed a girl before.
Most of his time was spent searching for demonic beasts and taming them.
He was clearly flustered by the scene before him.
He had used all kinds of ideas, but there was no good effect.
He had no choice but to grit his teeth and hug Sagas.
The moment she hugged him, she cried even louder.
After a long while, she finally stopped crying and said, “Thank you.”
After saying that, she let go of Jobs and ran out of the tree hole.
As soon as Jobs stepped out of the tree hole, he saw Sagas standing at the edge of the cliff, and she was about to jump.
He hurriedly stopped her and shouted: “What will happen to your mother if you jump down?”
As he spoke, he moved closer to her.
Hearing the voice, Sagas trembled and replied, “I don’t have a mother.”
After saying that, she prepared to jump down.
Immediately, Jobs lunged for her arm and pulled her up.
