Chapter 21 : 《Twin Mind Method》
I drew two magic circles while reading a grimoire.
There was a magic skill called 《Twin Mind Method》 which was recommended by Lunaire, this grimoire contained the record about that skill.
It seemed this skill enabled its user to use two completely different magic at the same time by dividing the conscious part of the brain into two.
In addition to increasing my learning speed, that skill increased the deployment rate of the magic circle too.
That effect was unrivaled even when compared to using 《Ether》 which could sharpen one’s mind together with the《Inquiry of Magic King》.
Lunaire told me before that I shouldn’t waste too much of my time even if it was just for the sake of raising my level until I mastered the《Twin Mind Method》.
According to her, the《Twin Mind Method》 was a staple skill for every skilled magician.
The reason was simply that a battle between fellow magician was under the assumption that the other party has mastered the《Twin Mind Method》. If any magician without this skill fought another magician with this skill, the one who didn’t have this skill would slowly become cornered until they are unable to fight back and then be defeated.
『T-That’s why you absolutely cannot leave this place until you learn the《Twin Mind Method》!… Understand!? ABSOLUTELY NO LEAVING!』
I heaved a sigh as I recalled Lunaire’s words.
…. I’ve always relied on these OP pieces of equipment all this time, I couldn’t remember the moment when I was not using them in battle.
With that said, in my current situation, well… it has been three days since I’ve spent most of my time trying to learn the 《Twin Mind Method》 instead of raising my level within the 《Distorted World of the Curse Mirror》.
During the process of learning the《Twin Mind Method》, I was constantly assaulted by extreme headache, vexation, fatigue, and a strange feeling of emptiness.
Anyway, those unpleasant feelings might be one of the other side effects in the learning process of this skill. Considering that I not only need to concentrate, the process also abused my brain to rewrite my mental structures.
In addition, the learning process of this skill is really troublesome since I couldn’t see the results immediately.
When I heard that this was a must-learn skill, I realized that I, in fact, suck at learning magic.
Well, me being a person of another world might play a big part in this.
I checked my status to confirm my increased skills.
Special Skill ：
《Status Check[Lv:–]》《Swordcraft:[Lv:6/10]》《True Alchemy[Lv:11/20]》
《Super-Tier Fire Magic[Lv:13/20]》《Super-Tier Earth Magic[Lv:11/20]》《Water Magic[Lv:9/10]》
《Wind Magic[Lv:10/10]》《Lightning Magic[Lv:3/10]》《Ice Magic[Lv:4/10]》
《White Magic[Lv:2/10]》《Ghost Magic[Lv:10/10]》《Barrier Magic[Lv:7/10]》
《Space-Time Magic[Lv:10/10]》《Summon Magic[Lv:7/10]》《Spirit Magic[Lv:2/10]》
…. Before I realized it, I’ve already raised my level and magic proficiency so much in this short span of time.
《Fire Magic》 was my most developed skill since I needed the highest firepower in the shortest amount of time to at least leave a scratch on those Devils.
Thanks to my effort, I could use the 14th rank spell of fire magic, 《Inferno Ball》 albeit it took quite a while to finish my aria.
Since my attack could at least damage the Devils whose level was far above mine, I guess I’m at least safe even if I leave this place.
I was also learning 《Alchemy》 since I felt that it could be useful to incorporate it into my combat style.
With my current proficiency level, I can make most of the drugs as long as I have the ingredients, I can also transmute metal using my mana.
My understanding of alchemy was solid thanks to Lunaire’s spartan training.
I also learn 《Earth Magic》 since it seemed to be most practical magic to use in most kinds of combat.
And though it took quite a while for me to learn 《Space-Time Magic》 due to its complex structure, I was told by Lunaire that learning this magic was a long term investment since its top-tier magic that was extremely useful.
Learning 《Dimension Pocket》 felt so great to me.
With this magic, I could take out or keep in anything at any time I want.
「KaNAtA, FoOD, FooD, I’M ReAAly HuNGRY.」
Noble Mimic approached me.
… Such a gluttonous treasure box.
Well cooking was also part of my hobbies, thus I’m happy that it got such high praise but…
「… GeH, MaSteR is ThE One Who Ask Me.」
Noble Mimic pointed out to Lunaire with his tongue.
Lunaire who was standing up quietly suddenly pointed her finger at Noble Mimic.
「J-JOKe, I WaS JoKIng, MAsTER!」
Noble Mimic ran toward Lunaire and then bowed desperately in front of her as if trying to appease her anger.
「YOu’Re RaTheR TouChy LateLy, MasTer.」
「…. Please stop… rubbing salt on my wound.」
Lunaire’s cheeks flushed lightly as she looked at me.
As an outsider, I couldn’t get their jokes.
But, Noble Mimic might be really hungry.
I didn’t realize that I’ve been immersed in my study for that long.
I guess it’s time to start the cooking preparation.
A fraction of the content of the grimoire’ suddenly caught my interest.
《Twin Mind Method》 was a powerful skill whose effect could be applied in almost anything.
But, since one needed a unique sense, a tremendous amount of time, and extremely high talent to learn it, it was theoretically impossible for a normal human to learn this skill.
It was a skill that was developed by an Immortal being whose lifespan was close to eternity and it took around thousands of years to be systemized by the dragons.
A normal-pure human needed a hundred years to learn this skill and the number of pure humans who mastered 《Twin Mind Method》 in the history of humanity could be counted in one hand.
Eh, This is completely different from what Lunaire told me before but….
What is… this out of place feeling?
「WhaT’s The MaTTer, KaNaTA? GimMe FooD.」
I stood from my chair and went towards Noble Mimic.
Well that grimoire was a really old book, so that information might be obsolete by now.
The magic systemization might’ve really advanced by now.
Thus I went toward the kitchen while making such reasons in my mind.
