p again. ” Abe No Seimei deduced.
”Meh, it ’s not like I used her power that much. ” Mizuki shrugged.
Despite using their powers, and blessings, the woman herself didn ’t think much about the Gods. She didn ’t place them in high value, or low value. For her, they were just tools for her magic to work properly.
”…As I said, foolish disciple, it ’s best not to rely too much on the blessings the Gods give. ”
”I know, you ’ve always said that. ”
”…But it ’s a very convenient thing. ”
”When things come too easily, they also go away too easily. ”
”…. ”ᴘ ᴀꪁⅆa ɴꪫꪚⅇʟ
”You had an example of this in your past. ”
”Don ’t talk about it. ”
”… ” Abe No Seimei sighed inwardly when he saw the woman ’s dark face.
Putting aside the past that Mizuki still didn ’t seem to get over, the old man continued:
”…The point is, now that you ’re back at your peak again, why not train in the enhancement techniques of my friend/enemy, Ashiya Dōman? ”
”The Onmyo? ” Mizuki felt quite reluctant.
”There are no good or bad Onmyoujutsu, there is no good or bad magic. ” Like an old teacher, Abe No Seimei began teaching his disciple.
”Magic is a tool, a tool that helps us understand mysticism… And as a tool, it is the owner who decides the course of his actions. ”
”The branch of faith you use is just one of many areas of Onmyoujutsu. ”
”…Ugh, I feel like I ’m going back to my teenage years again. ”
”It ’s your fault, foolish disciple, you haven ’t finished your training. ”
”A training that will take who knows how long! ” Mizuki rolled her eyes.
He visibly sighed again:
”Even if you are 3-… ”
”… ” Mizuki ’s eyes shone brightly in blood red. It even looked like she had become a Vampire, but all this was just her bloodlust.
”21 Years Old… You ’re still immature. ” As an old man, he quickly corrected himself, no matter the world, the age, women would never like to be talked about their age.
”I ’m not immature. ”
”Compared to me, you are. ”
”That ’s because you ’re a bald old man over 500 years old. ”
”Bald… ” Abe No Seimei touched his white hair, and sighed in relief. One of the good things about becoming a spirit was that he regained the hair that he ’d lost because of the stress of a certain red-haired woman!
He coughed a little when he saw Mizuki ’s amused smile, and said:
”If it had been before, I wouldn ’t have told you to try to learn my friend/rival ’s skills. ” He assumed a master ’s position, and looked at Mizuki.
Specifically, he was looking at her body, not with the face of an old pervert, but with the gaze of a doctor.
”After all, my friend ’s skills encompass a completely different area of Onmyoujutsu, it would take you dozens of years to master everything just like you have now with my techniques… But… My thoughts changed when you drank that man ’s blood. ”
”… ” Mizuki ’s face darkened as she remembered the incident, and soon her face was covered by her long black hair.
’That…that…that Vampire…always doing what he wants. ’ She was quite annoyed by that incident, but…
A small hint of embarrassment appeared on her cheeks as she remembered the incident.
”…That incident changed you. ” Abe No Seimei ignored Mizuki ’s state and continued with his lecture, he decided for himself that he would not interfere in this matter. His disciple may not have had much contact with the opposite sex in a romantic way, but she had been alive for enough time to understand about it.
And she had always lived in the poorest places in the world. She knew the nature of men, and because of that, he would not intrude.
… It definitely wasn ’t because he felt a slight existential crisis when Alucard casually touched him, and sent him flying.
”The phrase; you are back in your prime, is not false. ”
”Simply put, by drinking that man ’s blood, your body was healed, and you were rejuvenated. ”
”…But my appearance hasn ’t changed? ” Mizuki looked into the mirror.
”I ’m not talking about your physical appearance, I ’m talking about your body. ”
”Master, please stop speaking cryptically, summarize everything in two sentences! ”
A small invisible vein bulged on the old man ’s head:
”By drinking Alucard ’s blood, your body is now in a peak state, your cells have temporarily stopped aging, and became full of vitality. ”
Abe No Seimei approached Mizuki and pulled a hair from her head.
”Ouch! What are you doing? ”
”Look. ” The old man showed Mizuki the strand of hair he ’d plucked, and soon a small flame appeared in his hand, engulfing the entire strand… But… The fire didn ’t burn the hair.
It was only after a few seconds that hints of burn damage appeared on the strand.
The old man stopped using his powers, and Mizuki saw that the hair the old man plucked was only slightly burned, despite its prolonged exposure to fire.
”…This is…This is impossible. ” She was completely shocked, and quickly checked every corner of her body, but just like before there were no visible changes, her body was just healed and scar-free, and she felt stronger, but that was it…
”Really? I find this quite fascinating. That man ’s blood is literally something close to a fountain of youth for humans. ” Abe No Seimei ’s eyes sparkled in curiosity as he looked at the strand of hair.
’…Nevertheless, I highly doubt that people could get his blood that easily. ’ The old man thought without changing his expression. He knew very well who he was dealing with after this incident, after all, if a normal Noble Vampire gave their blood to a human, this kind of thing wouldn ’t happen.
… At the very least, the blood would kill the human for being too toxic.
’A Progenitor, the second of its race… ’
”…. ” He looked at his disciple who was admiring her beautiful curves in the mirror.
’You really have strange luck, Mizuki. ’
”Have you finished admiring yourself in the mirror? ”
”…I ’m not admiring myself… ” Her face darkened a little.
”Yeah yeah. Whatever. ” He rolled his eyes:
”Are you going to want to train or not? ”
Mizuki looked at her master, and thought that compared to Alucard, she was very weak, and that was a bad thing. She didn ’t want to feel helpless again in front of that man like she did a few days ago…
Although it wasn ’t a bad feeling because the man comforted her, she still remembered the feelings of despair she felt, she didn ’t want to feel that weakness again.
”…I will. ”
”Good. My friend ’s magic is quite violent, and you need opponents to improve yourself to train, that ’s one of the reasons it ’s so hard to train this magic… Fortunately, you have thousands of immortal creatures coming to this place all the time. ”
”I ’ll make sure you learn everything. ” The old man ’s smile grew a little. It truly was a blessing in disguise that she had come to this place.
”…Don ’t overdo it too much like before. ” Her face looked like someone who regretted her decision…
”Don ’t worry, now that you have a better physique, I will be stricter. ”
”Ugh… That ’s not what I was trying to say. ” She grumbled but didn ’t say anything more, despite being strict with her training, she felt it was for her own good.
’Fate is a bitch sometimes, but even she can be kind once in a while. ’ The old man thought.
