Jason′s steps stopped and he risked exposing himself without any logical reason.
But somehow he felt it was the right decision, even if he wasn′t sure why.
”Greg… Why don ’t you form a soul contract with this bull calf? ”
Without any explanation, Jason asked the question not thinking about anything special.
This sentence caused the old man to stop in his tracks as looked at the calf carefully.
”This is only a normal mid-evolved ranked beast cub called reinforced horned bull. Its chances to evolve into a higher unblemished being is lower compared to the other three potential bonds of Greg. Contracting this beast would be a waste. ”
Greg′s parents and his sister heard this and they nodded their heads, agreeing to the old man ’s explanation, while Greg′s sister threw a threatening glance at Jason.
Meanwhile, Greg looked at the reinforced horned bull calf, not knowing why Jason wanted him to pick this beast cub.
While Greg went closer to the bull calf, Jason who stood next to him said out loud.
”I think this bull calf is much better compared to the other three choices. ”
There was no explanation or anything like that coming from Jason.
In a quieter voice, he added to Greg.
”You can pick whichever beast you want to pick because it ’s your decision but don ’t regret your decision later. ”
Somehow what Jason said made Greg ponder.
He wanted to pick the newborn lesser orc which would be bound to his physical soul.
However, picking the non-elemental bull calf would make a difference of a whole rank as the lesser orc had the possibility to reach the unblemished rank with a certain amount of resources provided.
Greg turned to Jason and questioned him
”Why do you think this beast is better than the orc for example? ”
It was weird for Jason to say something like that, without giving a reason and Greg believed that Jason wouldn ’t want to harm him, even if Greg didn′t know why he trusted Jason so much.
Jason was in a tight spot because he still thought that he had to keep his eyes a secret as he remembered the old man′s words that his eyes could be revealed.
Turning to the old man he asked him again to be certain.
”Old man what you said earlier is still valid, right? ”
The old man was confused but he nodded his head
”Yeah, well..it is. ”
Turning back to Greg, Jason slowly loosened the bandage which was still full of blood and already dried up, causing an unpleasant feeling while taking the bandage off.
His eyes were closed because of the sudden light invading them.
After a short moment of adapting to the sudden stream of light, as Jason opened his bright golden shining eyes, looking straight into Greg′s eyes.
”W-Whats with your eyes? You ’re NOT blind anymore??? ” Greg was astonished and his jaw dropped to the ground.
He knew Jason many years long and his eyes looked like a dead fish every time he looked at him, making him feel uncomfortable, but now they were full of vigor and golden in color at that.
It was the first time for Jason to see Greg and he had a muscular build with short brown hair and eyes with a frown destroying his facial features.
Jason had to ponder how to put it as he said
”I had to gather mana for a long time to reactivate them. There was some sort of problem previously I had to fix, causing me to forsake absorbing mana into my mana core.
And my eyes are slightly special to add. ”
Thinking for a second, Jason told
”Back to the main topic. I recommended you this bull calf because my eyes tell me that it ’s the right choice for you to do.
In the end, it ’s your decision to do what you think is right and don ’t let anyone hinder you. ”
Greg′s family only saw Jason taking off his bandage, Greg ’s astonishment, and his loud voice.
They didn ’t know what was going on but they weren ’t fond of this situation as they understood that Jason wanted Greg to pick the bull calf, which the old man said was weaker than the other three beast cubs.
Greg smiled at Jason who returned the smile and confidently said out loud.
”I want the reinforced horned bull calf as my soulbond! ”
Hearing this Greg ’s parents were dumbfounded while his sister shouted with anger
”Brother, don ’t be stupid… what knowledge has this blind boy without any background we don ’t have? Don ’t be naive!! ”
She went closer to the two youths that still looked at each other, while Jason ’s back was only five meters apart from her.
Somehow she wanted to hit Jason really hard in his face as she grabbed his shoulder, pulling him back.
This caused Jason to stumble backward, while he was forced to turn around
Jason was completely attacked off guard, still looking towards Greg, as his shoulder was unexpectedly pulled back.
The face of a gorgeous teenage girl with beautiful facial features, fair skin, big brown eyes, and long eyelashes entered his view, distracting him slightly.
Meanwhile, the girl ’s face changed completely from anger to astonishment before it changed to shock as she looked into the youth ’s golden eyes with surprise shining within them.
The golden eyes felt as if they were as deep as the abyss but full of vigor.
Jason was a little bit angered as he didn′t like to get thrown around or touched by strangers.
Staring into Jason′s eyes, the girl felt uncomfortable because it was as if she couldn′t hide anything from him.
Looking into these eyes only a moment longer would be fatal and she would probably expose every secret she had without any hesitation and she backed off and loosened her grip, almost tripping.
Greg who held Jason was a little bit confused.
He understood his sister ’s rage slightly, however, he had never seen her backing off from clashes.
But right now looking into Jason ’s eyes caused her to back off which was interesting.
The old man was annoyed by Greg ’s sister ’s behavior and said
”If you finished choosing your soulbond you can leave while I will help out Jason choosing his bond.
Your parents can help you with the last steps as they aren ’t difficult. ”
Greg was disappointed that he wasn ’t allowed to look for Jason ’s soulbond but he had to accept the old man ’s order.
While Greg said goodbye to Jason, his sister looked suspiciously at him and Greg ’s father looked somehow angry at Jason.
The reinforced horned bull calf was brought to a different room by an attendant and Greg followed the staff with his family.
Now, Jason and the old man were alone while the old man looked at Jason curious, Jason was slightly apprehensive.
”Why are you so sure that the reinforced horned bull is better than the other cubs we have looked after? Is it really because of your eyes? ”
The old man was suspicious about him and also curious, while Jason got slightly nervous.
If he really told him the theory about his eyes seeing the potential of beasts, Jason wasn ’t sure what would happen so he made up a story.
”I ’m not sure what ’s so special about my eyes but after seeing the bull calf I got the feeling that it is stronger than the other beasts Greg wanted to choose from.
But to be honest, I could also be wrong and I told Greg that it ’s his decision which beast to pick but I hope I ’m not wrong. ”
