Born From a Forbidden Union, Humanity hates me. – Chapter 27: The long road to the birch forest

Chapter 27: The long road to the birch forest

The long month of improvement finally came to an end.

During training, the one who made the most progress toward developing magic was Amelia. She was now able to use most of her elements freely.

She didn't have the opportunity to master any of her remaining elements, but it was now at a satisfying degree, as she had become capable of using them in coordination with other elements.

Orion, on his side, did not progress much. The bottleneck in his mind did not lift, and he couldn't find the reason behind it.

He mostly improved the time he could stay in 'Overdrive', the newly called release of power Amelia was able to grant him.

Before coming to Ormrdivin, he lasted no more than five minutes. After a month of training only this ability, it now lasted twenty minutes.

The muscles in his legs were torn again and again to adapt to the burning. What he didn't know was, the process he went through was standard.

To be able to use this power freely, the body needed to be reconstructed each time through heavy and painful practice.

Each time, he became slightly faster than the previous training. The bout against Amelia became more and more one-sided with each training.

His speed became overwhelming. 

Before, Amelia could follow his speed with her wind magic, but currently, she was unable to follow anymore. He became three times faster than she was used to.

He could technically run at forty kilometers per hour in twenty minutes. Not only that, but he was as fast as a horse now, with a short time required before reaching top speed.

But something was troubling him during training. Why was his other leg, which wasn't part of the ability, able to follow he's other leg's speed?

He became sure something similar happened to his right leg, but the lock was still in place. His right leg was also reshaped to prepare for the next increase in power, while being sealed away.

After checking out all the changes going on, it was now time to leave the dragons, to seek for the hidden factions.

As Monolavir and Orion discussed which faction he should look for first, they mutually agreed the fairies were the better choice. The fact that they already knew the place they lived at helped a lot to decide.

The birch forest, or 'Dead White Forest' as it was called, was their next stop. It was nicknamed as such due to all the trees in this forest being dead, no leaves growing on their branches whatsoever.

It was also quite close to the Talviera Mountain Range. There was more or less a week of walking before reaching it.

Both Orion and Amelia said their goodbyes to the dragons, before they left while being carried in a bubble by Monolavir, similar to how they arrived.

He dropped them at the base of the mountains, giving them the easiest time anyone had going down those treacherous slopes.
