to the area where the trigoons were that he had killed the night before. He walked to the stream and looked down at the clear water that flowed down from the mountain. For the first time, he also got a good look at his reflection. Blonde hair that was more white than anything else and blood red eyes that contrasted with his pale skin. For someone who was out all day, he did not seem to tan or burn at all under the strong rays of the run. Ricky was very tanned, so Vance wondered if this came from this bodys mother.
”At least I have good looks. ” Vance nodded at his reflection before looking up and raising his hand towards the opposite side of the stream and saying: ”Fireball! ”
Vance stood there in the same pose for a moment before wrinkling his brow and tilting his head slightly. Nothing happened, so he could only assume he needed to be a bit more precise than just calling out the spells name. Fireball, or any spell with ball at the end of it, was a basic of the basic attack spells for mages. If he wanted to be a sword mage, he had to start here.
Images of the spell began to appear in his mind. They were from the times when he first started off. He imagined the magic circle that formed at the palm of his hand when he was directing a spell. Each line slowly began to form within his mind. Slowly but surely, spreading out to form magic runes that were used to channel your magic and complete the spell. Vance slowly opened his eyes as a small flash of orange light streaked across them. ”Fireball! ”
Vances hair began to flutter as a whirl of air began to gather around him. In front of his outstretched palm, an orange magic circle slowly began to form. This was much different from what he was used to. It was all done slowly. He could also feel the mana flowing through his body to the tips of his fingers down to the palm of his hand. Slowly but surely, the magic circle came to completion. A ball of fire formed in front of him before shooting out at an incredible speed!
The fireball slammed into the shore on the other side of the stream. At the same time, a new notification popped up in front of Vance.
[Skill Acquired: Fireball(LVL 1)]
[Notice: Due to learning how to use magic outside the skill menu, you have acquired Natural Mage title.]
[All spells learned outside of the system will be amplified by 50%, and the mana cost is cut in half.]
”Oh? ” Vance was surprised at this new information. He wanted to look more into it, but before he could, a voice came from behind him. ”Vance!? ”
Vance turned to see Ricky standing there, staring at him in surprise. The mans mouth was open wide enough to stick an entire egg into it. ”You…. You just used magic!? ”
Vance was kind of confused as to why Ricky was so surprised but still nodded his head in answer. He felt maybe this would allow him a bit more freedom. Rickys expression quickly turned from shock to happiness when he saw his son nod. ”Good! Good! Haha! My son can become a mage! You keep practicing. I will not bother you. Hahaha! My son will become a mage! ”
Vance saw how happy Ricky was that he was basically in tears and smiled. Since he was now in this mans sons body, he should at least try to do something for this man who obviously wanted the best for his kid. ”Father, I will make you proud. ”
Ricky walked over and hugged Vance without a word. Before stepping back and patting his shoulder. ”No matter what you do in the future, I will always be proud of you as long as you are not sitting on your ass. From now on, you can practice your magic. I will not hold you back. This can allow you to leave this village and go to the capital and make a name for yourself. ”
Vance looked at Ricky and understood that for an NPC, going to the capital was a dream for all villagers who wished for a better life. It was the same in real life. But for Vance, this was like a ball and chain. But it was also a chance for escape. He would need to leave this village soon if he wished to be able to progress at all, and in order to do so, this came at a good time. ”Father, I plan to go to the mountains tomorrow. ”
