Magic System in a Parallel World – Chapter 40: S-Rank Artifacts

Chapter 40: S-Rank Artifacts

Chapter 40: S-Rank Artifacts

‘Looks like everything went well…’ Leo sighed in relief inwardly.

He had been nervous about telling Miss Camille the truth about his Magic System, mostly because he didn’t know how she would react to it.

Fortunately, he listened to Lilith’s advice and spoke to her.

“Now what, Miss Camille?” Leo asked her sometime later.

She pondered, ‘As much as I don’t want him involved with Nina or her resurrection magic, I don’t want him to be penalized by the system. If the system decides to stop helping him because of this, it would be a tragic loss for humanity, and I would not be able to forgive myself for this.’

Due to the importance of the Magic System and its potential, she did not want to risk losing it.

“I am going to help you with your Magic System. Since it’s telling you to help Nina, you’re going to help her. However, you won’t be able to use resurrection magic with your current mana. You’ll need at least 50,000 mana to even activate the magic circle.”

“50,000?! Nina told me that I only needed 9,000!” He exclaimed.

“Then she probably has an artifact that will give you more mana. For example, if I don’t have enough mana to use a magic spell, I can simply borrow mana from an artifact. It’s common practice.”

“I see… However, I still need a minimum of 9,000 mana, and I only have a little over 1,000 right now. I don’t know how much mana I will be able to get from my next purchase in the Magic Shop, but it should put me close to that amount, considering how much magic points I need to purchase it.”

“How far away are you from making the purchase?” Miss Camille asked.

“I only need to finish one more quest, but that requires me to kill 50 monsters. I am already almost halfway done.”

“Is that it? We can finish that this weekend,” she said.

“Yes, that’s all the quest I have for now, not including the special quest.”

“Okay. Keep me up to date if anything changes with the Magic System, or you need help.”

Since Leo willingly revealed such a huge secret to her, she felt obligated to assist him. After all, if she was the one with the Magic System, she would’ve most likely kept it to herself, as she doesn’t trust anyone enough to share such information.

Sometime later, Miss Camille brought Leo to a large room in the basement.

“This place looks like the training area at the Adventurers’ Guild. To think you had such a place right underneath your home…” Leo was awed.

“Hm? Does this mean we’re going to be training now?” He asked.

“You can leave right now if you don’t want to.”

“I want to! Please train me!”

“Wait here for me. I will be back.” Miss Camille said to him before leaving through the staircase.

Leo stood there in silence until she returned.

“Wear this.”

Miss Camille handed him two rings that looked like it came straight out of a fantasy movie— a black and a red ring, both with a weird insignia on it.

“Elder’s Ring of Regeneration and Elder’s Ring of Empowerment. They’re both S-Rank artifacts. One boosts your mana regeneration and the other increases the effects of your artifacts. With these two combined, you’ll be able to use magic spells much more frequently.”

“S-Rank artifacts? And two of them at once? I’m afraid of asking, but I really want to know… How much did they cost?” He asked her.

“I found one of them inside a labyrinth and I bought the other one for 50 billion dollars,” she calmly said.

“F-Fifty—?!” Leo was left speechless by the astronomical price.

He was scared to even put these rings on his fingers after learning about their value!

“Are you sure you want to let me use such precious artifacts?”

“They were my most used artifacts during my days as an Adventurer, but now that I have retired, I rarely need them anymore. And it’s not like I am giving them to you. I’m taking them back at the end of your training!”

“O-Of course! I would be in a constant state of paranoia if I had such valuable treasures with me!” He exclaimed.

Miss Camille retrieved a Mana Absorbing Dummy from her spatial storage and placed it in the center of the room.

“There’s only one way to efficiently increase your mana capacity— by using mana. The more mana you use, the more your body adapts to mana, which will naturally increase your mana capacity. Also, magic spells that require more mana to use will increase your mana capacity faster than using magic spells that require fewer mana, so you should always use the magic spell with the highest mana consumption.” She explained to him.

“Highest mana consumption, huh? That would be the Void Spear.”

Leo started tossing Void Spears at the dummy.

He looked at his mana capacity after throwing his first Void Spear.

[800/1021]

He continued looking at it to see how effective the artifacts were.

[825/1021]

[850/1021]

His mana regenerated by 25 every second, meaning that he only needed to wait 8 seconds to recover enough mana to use a Void Spear.

‘My god! These two artifacts are freaking amazing! They definitely deserve to be rated S-Rank artifacts!’ He cried with excitement after seeing the results.

Leo proceeded to throw Void Spears at the dummy for the next few hours.

By the end of the day, Leo’s Mastery Rank for Void Spear increased to ‘E’, and his mana capacity increased by 120.

“Here you go.” Leo handed the artifacts back to Miss Camille at the end of his training, feeling a little reluctant to let them go.

“Since you’re already here, why not stay for dinner?” Miss Camille suddenly said to him after taking back her artifacts.

“If you don’t mind.” He nodded.

After returning to the first floor of the mansion, Miss Camille called for Sophie.

“We’ll have a guest for dinner tonight.”

“I understand.” Sophie nodded, but she looked at Leo with a dissatisfied expression when she spoke.

Once she left, Miss Camille said to him, “Dinner won’t be ready for another half hour, you should go clean your body before then. Did you bring another pair of clothes?”

“Yes, I carry around all of my stuff now that I have the Spatial Ring.”

Miss Camille showed him the bathroom a moment later before leaving him alone.

“Go downstairs to the first floor after you’re done. The dining room is to the right.”

“Okay.” He nodded even though he already knew the location from the tour earlier today.

After cleaning himself in the large bathroom that looked more like a spa, Leo changed into clean clothes before making his way to the dining room, where Miss Camille was already sitting at the dining table.

“I’ve been wondering about this for a while now, but are the two of you the only ones living in this mansion?” He asked her.

“Yes.”

“What about your family?”

“They’re in another city,” she calmly said.

“I see…”

Leo had a feeling that she didn’t want to talk about her family so he stopped his questions there.

“Tell me about the ‘me’ in your world. Her personality and whatnot.” Miss Camille suddenly said.

“You want to know the difference between the two of you, right? No problem!” He smiled.

“First of all, the two of you have a pretty similar personality. You’re both strict and always serious, and even though you seem cold and uncaring on the outside, you’re actually the opposite on the inside.”

“The Miss Camille I knew wasn’t a drinker, and she didn’t live in such an exaggerated home. Although she has her own outbursts at times, it’s nothing compared to you. I guess you can say that you’re a little more emotional than her.”

Miss Camille frowned after hearing such words. When Leo saw this, he quickly changed topics, “A-Anyways, my Miss Camille also worked in the infirmary. She likes spicy food but hates bitter food. She has a hobby of collecting rare crystals and…”

Leo spoke about the Miss Camille of his world without pausing to ponder, almost as though he knew everything about her from heart.

“It sounds like you like her very much.” Miss Camille spoke sometime later.

“Well, she was the only person in the whole university who would listen to my complaints and cared about me getting hurt. At first, I would only go to the infirmary to get treated for my injuries after fighting with the bullies, but I eventually realized that Miss Camille was just as lonely as me, so I started going to the infirmary whenever I could just to spend time with her.”

“She was both my friend and my counselor. If it weren’t for her, who helped me get through most of my darkest times in the university, I wouldn’t have survived this long… probably.” Leo said with a somewhat lonely smile on his face.

‘I see… So that’s why he has so much trust in me… However, I am not the same Camille that he knows and trusts, so why does he put so much trust in me? Is it simply foolishness or is it something else?’ Miss Camille wondered inwardly.

‘Regardless, at least I know the reason behind his trust now… If it’s him, perhaps I won’t have to worry about being betrayed by someone for the first time in a long time…’

Sometime later, Sophie showed up at the dining room with dinner. When that happened, they stopped their conversations and focused on the food in front of them.
