Chapter 59: Fire Sweep, the Ultimate Skill
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Liszt had a sense of achievement after teaching Dudderson how to unleash magic.
I’m a guy who knows science after all.
Experiments were the foundation of science. With simple experiments, he had figured out the usage of the space ring. It could keep common items but not living things. Liszt believed that the soul was some sort of movement, too, and that it would perish when it came to stillness.
He also stored things and took things out to test the consumption of magic power.
For now, it was still too burdensome for him to use the space ring.
His life was pretty occupied.
However, after two days, he began to feel bored.
All the elvish insects had been properly settled down. Agriculture and fishing were flourishing. Roads were being built slowly but surely. The candidates for the knight squad were being tested by Marcus and did not require his attention.
Just like most nobles, he was so bored that he had to find something to do.
If he were in a city, he could hold a ball, throw a party, or go hunting and make friends. However, there were only four people in Flower Town qualified to dine with him. He couldn’t prepare banquets for them every day.
So, Liszt decided to find something to do for himself.
He intended to conquer Thorn Hill in advance.
Thorn Hill is the greatest obstacle for Flower Town. It has to be broken through, or I’ll remain blind and deaf here.
Liszt knew the importance of communication as a modern man.
He talked about human trafficking with Levis before, but he didn’t know if Levis took it seriously. If Levis forgot to tell the Tulips’ fleet about the arrangement, he would have to wait for another three months.
Since the fleet had to stop by a lot of islands, every trip would take at least three months.
If he missed on the chance, the development of Flower Town would be delayed for another three months. Liszt did not want to waste his time.
It’s difficult to deal with monsters because they can launch ambushes anytime in the forest. If I chop all the trees on Thorn Hill, can the monsters defeat Marcus in an open field? Besides, my Red Blood Sword is thirsty for blood, too!
A gemstone weapon was certainly a great help in dealing with low-level monsters.
The sword was perhaps not very sharp, but the ruby embedded on it could at least double Liszt’s combat ability.
He drew the Red Blood Sword and held it with both hands. It was a two-handed sword.
The silver sword shined coldly.
“Heart of Fiery Dragon!”
Liszt shouted and slashed forth. The ultimate skill of Dragon Drill was activated. Fire rose on the Red Blood Sword and surged forward with an explosive sound. The skill was supposed to be performed on the horse, but Liszt had managed to perform it on foot.
Also, he learned to focus the attack in one direction without hurting himself.
Withdrawing the sword, he stood straight.
The fire was gone, and peace was restored, but the heat in the air indicated the power of the attack. He exhaled casually. If there had been a Wind Blade Wolf before me, it would’ve died.
He had grasped Dragon Drill.
Now, he was no longer a new earth knight but one capable of fighting. All he needed was more experience. He intended to study Furious Fire more. Furious Fire was a collection of moves that required a horse.
Three of his four squires had been sent to Marcus to help with the training, and Gray Sickle was the only one with him.
“Gray, carry my lance. I’m going to practice.”
“Yes, my lord!”
They came to the horsefield.
Green clovers stretched out to the horizon, and they were most exuberant near the wormgrass. That part was occupied by Black Dragon, which would bite any other horse when they trespassed.
Black Dragon certainly wouldn’t care about the gender of the horse when it was not in rut.
“My lord, are you going to ride? Do you need me to bring your horse gear?” Tom, seeing that Liszt was not with his valet, hurried to ask.
“No, don’t mind me.”
“All right, my lord.”
Liszt whistled. The black horse immediately rushed over.
The horse was 1.9 meters tall, even taller than Liszt.
So, he had to jump on the horse.
There were no reins, saddles, or stirrups. Black Dragon wouldn’t have any of them. Liszt did not force it to, either. As an earth knight, he was getting better and better at riding.
With his skills, he could totally ride the horse without any gear.
“Black Dragon, cooperate with me.” Stroking the horse’s neck, Liszt accepted the lance that Gray handed over. It was three meters long and required tremendous arm strength to wield.
It was made of fine steel. His squires had been polishing it every day.
As if it were demonstrating its strength, Black Dragon stood up and neighed against the sun. Then, it carried Liszt to a run on the horsefield, rushing, halting, jumping, and turning under Liszt’s command. Liszt performed Furious Fire on horseback.
The lance was too long to be wielded like a one-handed sword, but it was empowered by Black Dragon’s movement.
With a roar, Liszt’s surging combat aura flooded into the lance, and his horse leaped crazily under his command.
His combat aura ignited the air. The whole lance seemed to be on fire.
He swept from horseback, and red and orange fire rained from the sky, burning the clovers into ashes.
The horse landed and stopped. Liszt stabbed the lance into the ground and calmed the seething combat aura in his body. Fire Sweep was the ultimate skill of Furious Fire. It had a great cost, but it could clear a whole area easily.
Since Black Dragon was fast and fierce, the effect of the skill could be mostly carried out.
It was something he could not achieve with Fire Dragon.
It’s a pity that you’re going to be a stud and I can’t ride you to a battlefield… But of course, I probably would never go to a battlefield in person.
He got off the horse and patted its thigh, asking it to graze. Then, he called Fire Dragon with a different whistle.
He rode Fire Dragon to the castle.
“Gray, go and summon Mr. Goltai.”
“Yes, my lord!”
A moment later, Goltai came to the castle. “Liszt, what’s up?”
“I’m planning to cut down the trees of Thorn Hill and narrow down the monster habitat, so that we can break the obstacle for Flower Town,” announced Liszt confidently.
Goltai frowned. “Monsters are inevitable when we cut the trees. Isn’t it too risky?”
“Under the protection of Mr. Marcus and me, it won’t be too dangerous as long as we don’t encounter a large batch of monsters. There aren’t so many monsters on Thorn Hill. Also, I’m not planning to cut down all of the trees, but only the trees on the sides of the road.”
Cut down part of the trees to reduce the monsters’ living space, and finish the battle once and for all when all preparations were done.
That was Liszt’s plan.
