Sword God in a World of Magic

Chapter 13 - Training

ok an entire 90 minutes until Alex had finished training his legs, and he already felt quite a bit of soreness. This was the point where he would normally stop training his legs when he had been on earth.

For safety ’s sake, Alex also stopped training his legs at this point.

He had to check the usage of the Mana first.

Next, Alex trained his arms and shoulders.

As Alex continued training, he felt some kind of primal feeling.

He hadn ’t been sure where that feeling had come from initially, but he quickly found out.

He was training in the wilderness, away from any kind of responsibility, family, public image, work, and so on.

Only the rain drenching his body and the rough wilderness surrounded him.

He had to do nothing but train.

Training was his only responsibility.

Nothing else mattered.

There was no job he had to go back to.

There was no money he had to worry about.

He didn ’t have to wake up and go to work.

pᴀɴdᴀ nᴏveʟ He just had to grow more powerful.

In Alex ’s mind, the training seemingly transformed from an exercise into some form of spiritual cultivation.

Alex felt like this was the most primal and most fundamental truth of the world.

Just power, nothing else.

After 90 minutes, Alex was done with his arms and shoulders.

Lastly, Alex focused on his abdomen, chest, and back.

This took 60 minutes.

Then, Alex was finally done.

He had trained for four full hours, and he felt as alive as never before. These new surroundings had given Alex an incredible boost in energy, and training under the rain had been a bit weird at the beginning, but Alex had grown to love training in the rain.

It kept him cool, and the sensations of the raindrops had been almost hypnotic.

Alex took one more deep breath as he slowly cooled down from his training.

A couple minutes later, Alex realized that his mind wasn ’t as focused anymore.

He hadn ’t eaten much since yesterday, and he was severely dehydrated.

Alex checked on the bag and saw that it was full of water.

Sadly, the water wasn ’t pure at all. It had a brownish tint to it.

’I can ’t be choosy now. ’

Alex drank the brownish water. It definitely wasn ’t tasting good, but the cool sensation of the water running down his dry throat was great, nonetheless.

Then, Alex went over to the fireplace.

The fire had long been extinguished, and the meat was dripping with water from the rain.

However, Alex still grabbed the meat and consumed it.

It was missing a lot of seasoning, and it wasn ’t cooked well, but eating it like this awakened a special, primal feeling in Alex.

Surprisingly, the meat tasted rather good!

It was quite tough, but it had a really strong taste, similar to game.

Alex could have finished all of it, but he stopped himself.

It was important to not overfeed himself, or his concentration would wane while meditating.

After Alex was finished eating and drinking some more, he sat down near his tree and put the sword beside him.

Then, he closed his eyes and concentrated on the surroundings.

Surprisingly, the sound of the rain wasn ’t distracting. In actuality, it was helping Alex in getting in tune with his surroundings.

After some minutes passed, Alex felt a kind of mysterious force in the air, and he was sure that he had never felt anything like this on earth.

This was new.

This had to be Mana!

Alex concentrated on the Mana and tried to pull at it with his mind.

It took some getting used to, but after around half an hour, Alex had become quite good at pulling the Mana into himself.

Alex imagined himself as a black hole that pulled everything in its surroundings into itself.

He had to absorb everything that touched him.

The earth, wood, air, and other forms of matter didn ’t move, obviously, but since Alex ’s mind was able to manipulate the Mana to some degree, the Mana flowed into Alex ’s body.

As soon as the force entered Alex ’s body, he felt his muscles become warm but not hot.

It felt nice and relaxing.

It was like Alex was taking a bath.

Like this, three more hours passed.

The sun went over the horizon, and by now, night had arrived.

Alex opened his eyes.

He had to be careful now.
