Meeting Nadia again!

Chapter 40

Awakening the [Cosmic Void Gaze] automatically gave him access to the Void element itself.

So, the [Wrap of Quantum Darkness] that would help its owner conceal their presence using the darkness element would have an enhanced effect.

It would be something like having your entire existence shrouded for a short period of time.

The void literally translated to 'nothing', so in a sense, upon using the artifact, he would be something akin to nothing.

He would be very difficult to spot, but since the artifact itself was Rare Rank, it had limited capabilities and worked for a certain period of time.

He must use that time to reach Nadia and make her drink the Honorable Stars Essence.

He wanted to know what sort of effect it would have on his awakening… if she awakened an element.

Oliver activated the artifact, and he turned invisible to the naked eye and went towards the gate of the central area.

"Hey, what is that?"

One of the guards patrolling the gates suddenly pointed in the distance and asked in a loud voice.

Others also followed the direction and looked to see a huge and thick screen of smoke spreading towards them.

"Divide into two groups; one of the groups will go and verify what is going on with that smoke. Just in case, prepare to battle and apprehend anyone nearby for interrogation."

The guards coordinated well and quickly split into two groups. They all knew that doing anything funny or strange near the residential area of main members of the clan was a serious offense.

If the perpetrator had no good intentions, then the punishment could be as severe as execution.

No matter who it was, they would be punished according to the clan rules.

These were trained professionals, not fools who would easily get distracted. In the novels, it's just that the plot armor of the main character simply reduces the IQ of other people to make things work, but it won't work like that here.

The first group of guards stayed there near the gates themselves, and the second group went over to the smoke to look for anomalies.

They could not see through the smoke at all; it was quite thick, and their noses felt funny for some reason.

On the other hand, the group that remained was also vigilant.

"Keep looking around; we wouldn't want any unexpected individuals to sneak through in our presence!"

The guard announced and kept a tight watch around his surroundings.

___________________

Oliver managed to easily sneak past the guards while they were splitting up into groups, and now he was back in the central area.

Some troublesome memories returned to him when he remembered the faces of his 3rd brother and sister.

He would not forget them so easily; they were going to suffer a fate worse than the 2nd brother since they were the ones who had beaten him.

For now, he silently moved towards Nadia's courtyard.

Upon arriving in the courtyard, he saw that it was empty; there were many metal puppets in her yard. Some of them were showing signs of wear and tear, while others were still in perfectly fine condition.

She trained relentlessly.

He looked around and could not see her.

His expression turned weird.

'Could it be that she's not here at the moment?'

He had not considered the possibility of her not being available at all; he just assumed that she was going to be there when he visited.

He frowned and thought about what to do… he cannot stay for too long either.

Nor could he trust that no one would visit her courtyard if he left behind the syringe in here with a note or something.

It would be even worse if his mother decided to come in while he was still there.

Not to mention someone else who might as well just take this for themselves. It was a really precious thing that exorcists would shed blood for if they knew.

"What are you doing here again?"

A chilling voice sounded behind him as he froze for a moment.

He almost believed that his nightmare had come true and Ophelia was behind him, but although the voice was similar, he could tell who it was thanks to his keen memory.

He turned around and saw Nadia standing behind him, her eyes expressionless and facial features stiff.

He could not help but exclaim internally.

She had grown quite strong in the short time; he could not sense her approaching him in the least. It's a pity that this was not considered a milestone by the system, or else he would have gotten the respective benefits too.

He was not using [Wrap of Quantum Darkness] at the moment, so it was not a shock that she came behind him without him knowing.

Bypassing his senses with esper was very easy, and Nadia had abundant esper for her age.

He envied having access to so much esper, but he was not worried much.

Sooner or later, she was going to make a breakthrough in her ranks.

When an exorcist steps up in ranks, their esper increases significantly, and when Nadia finally becomes a Rank-1 exorcist, he would naturally get access to esper and a lot of that. His esper talent would directly become tenfold of hers.

He was just waiting for her to make a breakthrough.

He suddenly felt a chill as he looked at her staring at him coldly as if waiting for an answer, her patience wearing thin.

"Oh… I was here to… err… give you something."

He said awkwardly; he did not know why he always felt the need to act formally when she looked at him like that.

Her presence was imposing, or maybe it was just that since she was a character from a novel who later turned out to be quite cruel that he felt such a way.

Nonetheless, he took out the Honorable Stars Essence in the syringe under her narrowed eyes.

"Here."

He wanted to give it to her quickly and leave, but something unexpected happened.

"I don't need this." She replied in a calm tone, her intent hard to know.

"What… why?"

He looked at her in surprise; did she think he was giving her something suspicious?

Well, the color of the liquid was indeed a bit weird, but it was definitely not poison.

"I don't need your favors. I can grow strong on my own. I have told you before to not come here again, but yet you do? Do you not take my words seriously?"

She asked as her expression darkened. She did not know why, but she was feeling angry at him for some reason.

Anger? Was that how her emotion could be defined?

She was told by her mother to be always calm in every situation no matter what, never show happiness, never show anger. Your enemies must never figure you out. Always remain rational.

For happiness, show satisfaction; for anger, show dissatisfaction. Nothing more.

Yet she felt angry now that Oliver was in front of her…

And her reason for anger?
