Cap 6 - Past Traumas

see if there is still someone alive and clean the place, if you want to stop being useless come with me, Ill teach you how to master that power of yours. ”

”Whats your name? ”

”…Carlos ”

There was nothing else in that place for the boy and he wisely, reluctant Jean agreed to follow Carlos, the boy had no idea what to expect, but still continued following that man.

After a few years of going through the training imposed by Carlos, Jean had become one of the hunters best students, he surpassed the other students at an amazing speed, Calos then thought of an exclusive training for the boy, something to make the boy get an idea of what a real fight would be.

One day without much explanation, Carlos took Jean into the world of spirit, the environment that the hunter chose was like a medieval village.

”What exactly did we come here to do? ”

”Your training will be lasting a week here, I chose this place exactly because it has level threats about human, so you should have no problem dealing with them. ”

”… ”

”Apparently you understand, then do your best to survive. ”

Carlos then returned through the portal leaving the boy alone, only with his own luck and his spear, Jean was now 18 years old, but his experience in combat had never been put to the test, the boy had spent most of his time training alone, focusing only on controlling his ray magic.

Mastering that magic was difficult, many of her users gave up the idea of being hunters because of how difficult it was to develop and control that ability, Jean had gone through the same thing, it took him long years to manipulate and control it, but he never gave up, after a long time he had finally managed to control his magic.

Now he was being put in a real combat situation, although the place appeared to be quiet, Jean had in mind how dangerous that environment was.

”The spirit world… The same place that brought the end to my world… ”

His first two days in that environment were quiet, the boy first found a place to take shelter in one of the houses and tried to be silent, to form that did not draw attention, during those two days he witnessed the anomalies of the spiritual world, despite being quiet from morning to night he became a disturbing place, it was difficult to sleep and the thought of being attacked mantia the boy on alert all the time.

After the third day the boy began had the misfortune to be found by the pods, they were spirits that could be considered below the class over human, could not attack or be attacked, but they appeared randomly and when they came into contact with someone it was difficult to get rid of them, the vagantes are evil beings that absorb any and all kind of good thoughts of people, they usually leave when they realize that the victim they have chosen has a strong mind, but when they find a victim who is already mentally impaired, they absorb happy thoughts and begin to force the person to sink deeper and deeper into sadness, until the person can take it anymore.

The boy could not get rid of those creatures, the wanderings stunned the boy for hours, showing him his past and the day he discovered his powers, forcing the boy to remember all the evil that went against his will, Jean then began to see a version of himself only when he was younger.

”You
e still weak. ”

”… ”

”Youve never been able to save anyone… That night you were a coward, it didn change a bit from when snakes killed our parents, you continued a child hiding and crying. ”

”I know that, but I also know that I didn have the strength to change those situations, now thats changed… ”

The boy, though traumatized by his past, managed to stand firm even with the wanderings by his side, when he finally arrived on the fifth day, noticed a peculiar figure, it was like a white fox with red stripes by the body, that figure stared at the boy from afar inside a black forest, after some time she disappeared, Jean wise that that creature was not reliable, there were few beings who inhabited the world of spirits who could be considered good.

When he arrived on his sixth day Jean was exhausted, it had been a while since he had not ate and had not been able to rest either, yet he was still firm, but on that day that strange figure appeared again, this time she was closer, a few steps from the boy, it was as if she was always there lurking, more than only now had the interest to reveal his presence.

That figure blindly stared at the boy, little by little she began to approach while his face that once looked smooth opened showing a mouth full of teeth, even exhausted the wise boy that that creature had no good intentions, so he entered his combat position waited for the creature to approach.

After a long time staring at each other, the strange fox figure advanced toward the boy, using the few forces he had, Jean began to dodge the foxs attacks while looking for the right time to attack, Jean wise that in his current situation, if he did not kill the creature in a single blow she would kill him, then he waited, his enemy was not so strong, but it was fast, while the fox prepared to attack the boy again, Jean finally found the opening he needed, dodging the foxs swift attack, Jean electrified his spear and nailed it to the creatures neck, after which he used his remaining magic to carry his spear electrifying the creature and finally killing it.

After being defeated, the fox began to disappear giving way to a white mask with red details shaped like a fox face, Jean then took the mask and began wearing it on his face.

The next day Carlos finally arrived, after walking a little through the village, Carlos found Jean sitting with his back to a well while looking at the ground.

”What a ridiculous mask is that? ”

”… ”

”Apparently you really survived brat, my congratulations… ” said Carlos as he turned his back and went back to the portal. ”

Without waiting too long Jean got up and followed his master back to the human world, after passing through the portal, Charles stopped Jean before he left.

”The brat, now you are no longer a beginner, the elders have observed your experience in the spirit world, now you are an apprentice rank hunter. ”

”… ”

After learning of that news Jean did not show much interest and began to withdraw from the room, after getting ready he began to prepare to return home, on the way out he noticed a certain splendour, curiosity soon took his mind, approaching a room he can see the trial of a girl who was going through the apprentices test, he then watched the girls fight and his approval, but something else caught his attention, that girl as he left the room had a negative aura, an aura he had already witnessed when he was younger.

”Did you take an interested in that brat? ”Carlos said while he was going against the boy. ”

”Who is she? ”

”Her name is Haruka, she is a user of the soul. ”

”User of the soul? Ive never heard of that magic. ”

”Its a very old magic, she was discovered after a fight with an ancient demon, then she had another user who was also apprenticed to the same idiot who is training that brat. ”

”Have you ever met him? ”

After the boys question, Carlos was troubled, his anger was more than apparent.

”That asshole killed six hunters who used to be his friends, I tried to stop him but I couldn either. ”

”I understand… Im going home. ”

At that moment Jean had recalled his past, the presence of that girl made him remember the moments of despair that he had spent as a child, the girl had a negative and frightening aura, something that he had witnessed closely as a child, it bothered the hunter.

After a few days the boy finally received his first mission, it was an infestation of youkais that had taken over a small town.

”Are you excited for your brat mission? ”

”No, im not… Why do they take so long to send the hunters on these missions? ”

”Its pretty simple, youkais are threats that don usually leave the area where they appear, so the army closes the city and tries to calculate the number of threats on the spot and then send the hunters. ”

”And how many threats have they been able to calculate? ”

”They did not get much information, only that among those pests has a prime class. ”

”It didn help much then… ”

”The hunters life is so brat, if it were easy anyone would be a hunter, try not to kill himself like an idiot. ”

”Comforting your motivation… ”

After that brief conversation with Carlos, Jean took his things and prepared for his mission, after arriving at the organization he waited patiently for the other hunters, however, he noticed that there was a hunter who had not yet arrived, at first he did not care so much, until the missing hunter finally arrived.

”There bunch! I sprouted, is everyone ready already? ”

That voice echoed through the boys ears, he quickly turned his gaze to the girl, while she talked to her master, Jean realized that she was the same girl he had seen in the apprentice test, however, this time the girl no longer had that negative aura, now he was close enough to the girl who had reminded him of his troubled past.
