My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 150
I Was Able to Use Beginner Magic
“And with that alone, you can make an opening to escape. And depending on how you escape, you may be able to survive.”
“Thank you. I hadn’t thought about that before.”
“Well, it’s because you started training with the sword. You only think about using the sword to defeat your enemy. Everyone is like that in the beginning. And so I think it was a good opportunity.”
Like Sebastian said, if you are wielding a sword but only thinking of running, you will not be able to hit anything.
And so you had to go at it with the intention of pushing and overwhelming the enemy.
No one would be scared of someone who was hesitant and trying to retreat.
“Now, since you understand how important running away can be, try and use some magic. It’s simple, so you’ll be able to do it quickly. First, chant like I do… Light Elemental Shine.”
“Very well. …Light Elemental Shine.”
This was a magic lesson, not a lesson about running away.
Now that I could finally use some magic, I felt very excited as I repeated the words.
“It doesn’t work…”
However, no light appeared from my hand.
And yet, a light that was different from the first one was now hovering over Sebastian’s hand…
“Of course, not. All you did was repeat the words, Mr. Takumi. You need them to carry the magic energy and convert it. And then activate.”
While we knew that I had magic energy, I had no idea how to tap into it.
After all, I had lived my whole life without even knowing that magic existed.
“Magic energy is something that humans have…but those who have never used magic do not know how to handle that energy.”
“First, it is important for you to learn how to use this magic energy. Light magic is easy and does not use much energy, so it’s perfect for practicing.”
As all you did was make a light, the spell that Sebastian was teaching me was supposed to be easy.
I guess it was like beginner magic.
“Indeed… First, try closing your eyes. Now, concentrate on your breathing…”
I did as Sebastian said and closed my eyes and breathed.
“And in that state, move your consciousness over to your body. And then, you should feel parts of you growing warmer. Near your head and heart…”
“Temperature…yes…here and there. I feel a faint warmth.”
“Those are parts of the magic energy within you. As the energy circulates through your body, being able to feel it is the first step.”
I did as Sebastian said and concentrated on my body…and then I could feel my head and heart grow warm. And then my hands, feet and shoulders as well.
I had never felt anything like this in my old world.
It was only a faint warmth, but it was calming as well.
Perhaps it was because it was my own magic energy?
“Do not forget the feeling of that magic energy. And then, as if squeezing it out, try and move that warmth to where the magic is activated. …Though, this works differently from person to person.”
Uhh, as I was going to do light magic, I should send it to the palm of my right hand.
I would then send the energy that I felt the most clearly… Ah, something was moving.
The faint warmth began to slowly move towards my right hand… It was like blood coursing through my veins.
Well, I didn’t actually feel blood moving, but it was easier to visualize it like that.
“I think that the magic energy…is gathered in my hand.”
“You are a fast learner… It means you have the right qualities. Now, try to think of unleashing that energy while chanting.”
“Yes… Light Elemental Shine.”
I followed Sebastian and chanted.
And then, from my hand that was warmed by the magic energy, just as I thought that it grew warmer, a sphere of light appeared.
“Ohh… I did it…!”
“Wonderful. That was faster than I expected. Now you can use magic, Mr. Takumi.”
The sphere of light on my hand was shining brightly. But I was so excited that I didn’t even care.
Perhaps it was because Sebastian was a good teacher.
Right now, the fact that I was using magic made me so happy that I wanted to take Sebastian’s hands and celebrate.
…Though, I would do no such thing.
“It’s simple magic, as we don’t have much time… But by learning a basic spell, it will be easier to learn various other kinds of magic.”
What other kinds of magic would I be able to use…?
Maybe fire magic, like what Leo did to light the bonfire?
Or water magic? It wasn’t suited for drinking, but you could use it to wash dishes.
What magic could I use? What magic did I want to use? There was no end to it once my mind started going.
“So I’ll be able to use different kinds of magic.”
“Of course. You have a lot of magic energy, after all. And while it may take some time, I’m sure you will be able to use many different spells.”
Indeed, when I was checked in Ractos, I was told something about having a lot of magic energy.
In that case, perhaps I could use magic that would serve me during combat…?
…Of course, I had to train to use magic without chanting, so it would take some time.
“With magic, there are some that you really have to understand the spells, and some that use a lot of energy. And so you must study them and be sure of how much energy to use, or it will not do.”
“Still, I’m very happy that I’m able to use magic now…”
With magic that required a lot of energy, I would have to gather that much energy in my hand in order to activate it. And that would take practice, I suppose.
As for studying in order to understand spells, that was obvious.
It was only thanks to Sebastian’s explanation and demonstration that I was able to learn the light magic so quickly.
I suppose it was also because it was beginner magic.
