Chapter 201 About the Forbidden Magic

 
 
 

My heart felt warm talking to my mother like this. Talking about things such as my love life to a mother is one of the things that I had only dreamed of, but now here we are face to face.

"Oh mama, I have a lot of things to tell you." I am so happy that tears are starting to fall from my eyes again.


 
"We have much time for that, now that we are together again." My mother wiped my tears away. "But first we need to talk about the most pressing matter." My mother’s tone became more serious and her smiling face changes to a neutral one.

I looked at my mother with confusion. What is the pressing matter she is talking about? Is it about the war my Aunt Patricia started? Does my mother know something?

"Since the time your aunt saved me, she was always trying to contact me through my mind. There is a reason for this." My mother said with a serious tone. "She is planning to revive the forbidden magic our father once used. That was same magic that destroyed our country."

"Mama, you know of the forbidden magic?" I asked in haste. If my mother can give us some information to prevent the forbidden magic from being used then it would be a win for us.

My mother shook her head. "I was just a small girl that time the research of the forbidden magic was ongoing. What I know that only the ’chosen one’ can wield and use such enormous power. And my father thought he was that ’chosen one’." My mother looked sad while recalling the past. "The only thing I could remember was that in activating the forbidden magic, there is a key to be used. This key was divided in three parts and they were hidden in different parts of the continent. It is said that after the three divided parts of the key was combined into one and used to unleash the forbidden magic, if the bearer was not the chosen one then these parts would be divided once again and will be magically transported back to their hidden places respectively."


 
"Are you saying that because grandfather was not the chosen one, these parts have returned to their original place after he used it?" I asked.

"I believe so." Mother replied.

"Then Aunt Patricia is searching for them right now?" I felt a shiver down my spine.

If my aunt gets her hands on those parts and the key was formed once more, then there is a possibility that they can use the forbidden magic again.

"We need to stop her from getting the parts of the key." I said with a trembling voice.

"Yes, that is why I am not willing to talk to my sister." Mother explained. "The map that leads to the hiding places of these parts was entrusted to the both of us. We have half of each map. Without the other, the map is useless. It is because the map is engraved in a magical object that was broken in two."

"The map was engraved in a magical object?" I asked in surprise.

"Yes, remember the necklace I have entrusted to you?" My mother asked and I nodded. "That necklace was an ancient artifact embedded with a huge amount of magic power that was said to be from the Almighty One himself."

"The Almighty One?" I asked mother confused.

"The Almighty One was the founder of this continent. He was a powerful being that gave life to this land. The Atlantians are his descendants and we of royal blood are his direct descendants. Thus we can use magic powers that control the elements of nature and also non-elemental abilities." Mother explained.

"So the necklace you gave me contains a big amount of magical power and also serves as a map to the hidden parts of the key." I concluded.


 
There was a wave of information being given to me right now. What I need is to digest all of this so that I can analyze and remember all of them.

"Yes, that necklace can serve as a power up to whoever wears it. It also re-charges with the wearer’s magic without them knowing." My mother said. "Well that necklace has many uses but its main use is being a map. But without the other half, then the map won’t show up."

Does that mean the necklace also contains my magic power because I have been wearing it for years now? Now that Regaleon has the necklace, it can be of use to him if he is in danger. I am happy to know that the necklace I have entrusted to him can help him if he was in danger.

"So the other half is with Aunt Patricia, correct?" I asked mother while I was deep in thought.

"Yes. And that is why I am resisting her until today." Mother sighed. "I really don’t want her to go through this revenge. It will only give grief to everyone. She is my sister and I don’t want her to go thru the same path as father."

I know that my mother has been resisting Aunt Patricia as hard as she could. That was why she built those walls to protect her inner consciousness where she resides. But even without my mother’s help, Aunt Patricia still has gone thru with the war.

"I am afraid that your efforts have gone to waste mama." I said to her. "Even without the map, she still started a war and now many people are suffering because of it. What we can only do for now is to prevent the map to fall into her hands. Good thing the necklace wasn’t with me when I was taken. I have given it to Regaleon before I was kidnapped."


 
My mother was happy when she heard that the necklace was presently not with me.

"What we need to do now is to escape from here." I said in earnest. "Will you come back to the real world, Mama?"

I looked at her still worried that she doesn’t want to go back. This world she created inside her inner consciousness was peaceful and tranquil, unlike the chaos and troubles of the real world.

"Of course I will go back with you." My mother smiled warmly. "This world is just a make belief that I made while I imprisoned myself to prevent your aunt to find the necklace. I will go back to where my real loved ones are."

I felt happy after hearing her say those words. I pulled her into a hug instantly. When I pulled back I saw the people that were in the tavern fading slowly, like they were being erased by the wind.

"We still need to be safe once we come back to the real world." My mother said. "I will still play lifeless even when we are back so that your aunt won’t be suspicious. But I am sure she won’t be tricked for too long."

My mother is right. I am sure I have made quite a fuss in the real world while trying to break the last wall a while ago. The queen will be curious about my achievement so far.

"Don’t worry, I will surely devise a plan for us to escape with my friends once we are back." I said. I looked at my mother while the world around us was fading into nothingness. Her face was starting to age to the present day but she was still beautiful. "Father would be so happy to know that you are alive. I will tell you all about what happened when we get back."

"Okay." My mother nodded. "I would also love to see Edward even if only for a glance."

I smiled looking at my mother. It was clearly seen on her face that she was still in love with my father. She left the palace because of my step mother the queen and to stop giving problems to father. But she has never stopped loving him. She doesn’t know that father has annulled his marriage with my step mother. And now because my mother is legally married to father, she can be given the position as queen of Alvannia.

I smiled with the thought. I want my mother to be happy now that she has come back to our side.

Chapter 202 The Atlantian Archeologist and Researcher

 
 
 

(Regaleon’s POV)

I have been cooped up inside my office for the past few days now. And so I thought to have a walk at the palace garden to get some fresh air.

These past few days have become hectic. The enemy’s battle plans that Willam have sent from Jennova has been very helpful. Using them as a guide, my army had made preparations and precautions before the surprise attack starts.


 
I have been restless since Alicia’s last letter. How many days have passed by and no new letters have come. I can’t help but worry about her.

I look at the beautiful palace garden where the signature blue roses were planted. These blue roses are one of a kind and are only found inside the palace. The insignia of the royal family of Grandcrest bear the blue rose in it.

I heaved a deep sigh. I have hoped to lift up my spirits by looking at the beautiful scenery of the palace garden but all I can think about was my love.

"How I wish you are here my love." I said to myself. "I wanted to show this garden to you after we got engaged. I am sure you would have loved it."

Remembering Alicia’s beautiful face in my memories made my heart ache. The distance between us now is unbearable.

"How I wish I can fly there over to you and snatch you back to my side." I looked at the clear blue sky above. I just wish for this war to end and for you to come back to my side where you should belong.

I see Tempest flying overhead, circling my position.

’You have a guest.’ I hear Tempest’s voice inside my head.

’Oh, who could that be?’ I asked telepathically.

’The researcher you have ordered to be searched for, I helped find him.’ Tempest replied nonchalantly while landing on my arm.

"Is that so?" I answered him out loud. "Then I have to give you a reward then." I smiled at him.

’Then prepare me a feast later.’ Tempest spread his wide wings and prepares to take flight.


 
"Then I will prepare you some fat game later." I replied.

Tempest flapped his wings and took off into the sky. What he asked for was a good game to hunt. He did not want food served for him, he wanted the challenge of hunting them. And because these past few days he was on a mission, he was unable to hunt good food that is why he was asking for a good game.

"I will tell Dimitri to prepare you a good catch later." I said.

Not long I see Dimitri walking towards me with a middle aged man behind him. He has crimson hair like Jack but more on a darker tone with some white hair peeking out. He was wearing a solemn smile on his face.

"Your majesty." Dimitri bowed before me. "I have brought Mr. Gilbert Wilson here as you have ordered."

"Thank you Dimitri." I replied and Dimitri took a step back to give way to Gilbert.

"Greetings your majesty, the sun of the Grandcrest empire." Gilbert bowed down. "It is an honor for me to be called to your presence."

"Rise Mr. Gilbert. You don’t need to be so courteous because I was the one to call for you." I said with a solemn expression.

"Please your majesty, just call me Gil." Gilbert smiled brightly. "Ahh, you look so much like your mother."

"You know my mother?" I was caught by surprise. I have never thought that Gilbert and my mother were acquaintances.

"Yes, we were what you call childhood friends." Gilbert was looking at me with warm emotions. "We fought the war on opposite sides unfortunately. Are you willing to hear my story?"


 
I looked at the middle aged man in front of me. It looks like he knows my mother well.

"Please do." I replied to his question.

"Haha." Gilbert chuckled. "Can you show meyour beautiful garden while I tell my story?"

"Yes, of course." I nodded and gestured my hand leading him around.

"Well where will I start?" Gilbert said. "Hmm, as I have said your mother and I were childhood friends. We grew up together. I was just the son between the head maid and butler that served your mother’s family in Atlantia. When we entered our teens, we respectively chose our different paths. She became an arch mage of the imperial palace while I became an archeologist and researcher, directly reporting to the late mad king back then."

I can feel his tone was firm but with tinge of sadness.

"I was gifted with intellect rather than strong magic abilities. The ancient society of Atlantia has amazed me since when I was a boy. And to think I have discovered many things while working as a researcher in the palace." Gilbert said.

"I was the one that discovered the ancient books that contained the old prophecy in a dark corner of the palace’s library. I took interest on them and I was also the one that was able to decipher the ancient texts and found where the key to the forbidden magic was hidden." Gilbert continued. "Well, in short I was the reason why the past Great War started."

I can hear Gilbert sighed in sadness. He was feeling guilty for what his researches have done.

"Then did you regret having found such information?" I asked bluntly.


 
It is true that if he didn’t discovered those things in the first place then the past mad king of Atlantia wouldn’t have gotten mad blinded by the thought of power contained in that forbidden magic.

"I also ask myself the same question, your majesty." Gilbert replied. "But if given a chance again, I will still do the research. My only regret was having my research known by the late mad king. I was young back then and thirsted for recognition and power. I wanted to gain higher rank, me being just of common Atlantian birth I wanted to climb up the ladder. Compared to your mother that was of noble birth, I was just a commoner. I was insecure back then and because I was given an opportunity to work at the palace as a researcher because of my intellect, I was blinded by the thirst for power. I gained recognition and was given high rank after my research. But it cost me your mother’s trust in me to be broken."

"You are talking was as if... you were in love with my mother?" I stopped in my tracks and looked back at him.

"Yes, I was in love with your mother." Gilbert gave a sad smile. "But that love just gave her such a burden."

(Regaleon’s POV)

"I was young back then and thirsted for recognition and power. I wanted to gain higher rank, me being just of common Atlantian birth I wanted to climb up the ladder. Compared to your mother that was of noble birth, I was just a commoner. I was insecure back then and because I was given an opportunity to work at the palace as a researcher because of my intellect, I was blinded by the thirst for power. I gained recognition and was given high rank after my research. But it cost me your mother’s trust in me to be broken."

"You are talking was as if... you were in love with my mother?" I stopped in my tracks and looked back at him.


 
"Yes, I was in love with your mother." Gilbert gave a sad smile. "But that love just gave her such a burden."

I was not really surprised with this information. I am sure with my mother’s looks and personality, men would fall for her. It was my father’s luck to be loved back by my mother and to be chosen by her.

"When I became the head researcher, your mother was the head mage of her order. She was very beautiful and talented in magic. Many noble men sought for her hand and I was one of them. Gaining a proper rank, I proposed to your mother back then. We were both still young and just entered adulthood." Gilbert said with a smile while reminiscing.

"I guess that didn’t go too well." I said.

"Haha, you are quite right there your majesty." Gilbert chuckled. "But it was because of a reason that I have regretted doing. After my research came to fruition, the mad king assembled his army and planned to conquer the continent. Your mother, she knew that my research was something that was frightening and can give power to someone and also can destroy many lives. I still remember her words."

*’I am sorry Gil. You have always been a good friend to me, like a big brother. It is not like my feelings for you won’t evolve. It’s just that what you have done may bring suffering to many people. I cannot live with you while remembering what you have done. That is why I cannot accept your proposal.’

"Your mother was a very righteous person. She cannot overlook the things I have done. I also regretted giving my research to the mad king in the past. The Great War started because of my research and your mother chose to side with the other side when she saw the mad king’s madness." Gilbert let out a sad sigh.


 
"But you survived the Great War and you are still alive." I said. "You can still redeem yourself from your wrong doings and do good." I patted Gilbert’s shoulder.

"You have your mother’s good nature I see." Gilbert smiled. "And I thought you were a tyrant king that killed his brother’s to get the throne. But I can see you are not what the rumors say, hahaha." He chuckled.

"Well, there may be some truth on those rumors." I smiled.

"At the last months of the Great War, I defected from the mad king’s faction and came to your mother. She accepted me in open arms but it was too late for me to win her heart." Gilbert said. "Your father has gotten her heart by that time."

"Well it’s your loss, being late and all. Haha." I chuckled.

"You are probably right there, hahaha." Gilbert chuckled with me.

We were quiet for a while, gazing at the blue roses in the garden.

"This garden really is one of a kind. I heard this blue rose has many medicinal properties such as skin care and beauty products?" Gilbert said. He bent down and touched one of the blue roses.

"Yes, the blue rose at first was just special flower that only grows here inside the palace. But years back they found medicinal properties that can help people, like what you have said. After this war I will give an order for these blue roses to be planted in plantations and mass produce its extracts." I said.

"Then can I have some your majesty? I want to do some research on this blue rose and maybe find other useful properties from them." Gilbert said. "Of course I will share my research to you your majesty."


 
I looked at him with one eyebrow raised. "It is true you are still thirsting for knowledge. Is that why you still wander around the continent and also came here answering my call. Haha." I lightly chuckled.

"Haha, well you are correct there your majesty." Gilbert chuckled as well. "I came with a side agenda about these blue roses that is only found inside the palace of Grandcrest. I also want to study them even further."

"Then I will give you some of these blue roses for your research before you leave." I said.

"Oh but it can wait. Let’s talk about why you had called me here your majesty." Gilbert looked at me with curiosity. "What would you like to know from this old man your majesty?"

"Then let’s go inside to talk." I said.

Gilbert and I walked back inside the palace with Dimitri following behind. I lead the way to my office and while there offered Gilbert to sit down.

"Gil, please take a seat." I said.

Gilbert took a seat and sat down.

"Dimitri, have the maids bring tea and snack for Sir Gilbert." I ordered.

"Yes, your majesty." Dimitri bowed and left.

"I heard that young man is also an Atlantian." Gilbert said. "It looks like he is a loyal aid to you. I am happy that you are living well now even when your mother is gone."

"I am fortunate to have loyal people by my side. I may have walked on a stiff and narrow path since birth, being a prince of Grandcrest. But at least I have my mother and Dimitri by my side." I replied.

"I am happy to hear that. At least your future seems to be on the right path." Gilbert said.

"But still this war is a big hurdle for me. And also my future wife has been captured by my enemies." I gave a sigh. "Problems are still coming one after another."

"That is what a king would have to go through but I am sure you will do well." Gilbert said. "My son is also working for you I have heard. That unruly kid has grown up to make the right choices haha. As I recall he was in Jennova to retrieve your fiancée."

"Yes, about that. What I called you for is about her." I said. "It is about the prophecy of the chosen one from the royal blood line of Atlantia."

(Regaleon’s POV)

"But still this war is a big hurdle for me. And also my future wife has been captured by my enemies." I gave a sigh. "Problems are still coming one after another."

"That is what a king would have to go through but I am sure you will do well." Gilbert said. "My son is also working for you I have heard. That unruly kid has grown up to make the right choices haha. As I recall he was in Jennova to retrieve your fiancée."


 
"Yes, about that. What I called you for is about her." I said. "It is about the prophecy of the chosen one from the royal blood line of Atlantia."

"I have heard that your fiancée is the daughter of King Edward of Alvannia. And her mother was just a maid from the palace." Gilbert said. "But judging by her features, she has the looks of the royal blood of Atlantia."

"What you said is correct." I replied. "Princess Alicia is the third princess of Alvannia between King Edward and his legal concubine Leticia." I looked at Gilbert with seriousness. With mentioning Alicia’s mother’s name, I am sure Gilbert will connect the dots.

"My word, Leticia you say. Then she is one of the twin daughters of the mad king." Gilbert said. "Hah, what are the odds to know that the royal blood of Atlantia still exists in this continent."

"Not only that, the queen of Jennovia is Leticia’s twin sister Patricia. It is said that her son the crown prince is of pure blood, born from their elder brother the crown prince of Atlantia and Princess Patricia herself."

Gilbert’s eyes widened in shock. He has been wandering the continent for research but of course such information has been hidden deep. If not for my great information network, I wouldn’t know these secrets as well.

"Then that means the royal blood still exists, it just means the incident before may happen again." I can see fear in Gilbert’s eyes.

Gilbert has seen the Great War with his own eyes. He has seen the bloodshed and the death tolls the war brought because of the forbidden magic. A whole country sank to the bottom of the see because of this.


 
"I hear that the queen of Jennovia plans to resurrect that forbidden magic you have researched for." I said.

"No, she must not do such a thing!" Gilbert was clearly agitated with this information. "That forbidden magic was frightening, it cannot be controlled. It can destroy even all this whole continent."

"I understand your worries Gil. I also think the same." I said. "But she is blinded with revenge and hatred. I am afraid she will not yield to you requests."

Gilbert started to walk around with agitation.

"No, this power must not be unearthed once more. It will only bring destruction." Gilbert said. "Even the mad king wasn’t able to control such destructive power. Even his son the crown prince tried to control it after seeing his father’s failed efforts, but he was not able to succeed. Only the chosen one can yield such destructive power."

I stood up and patted the agitated Gilbert’s shoulder to calm him down.

"You said ’only the chosen one can yield its power’. Then how can one know that he or she was the chosen one?" I asked.

Gilbert stopped in his tracks and held his chin in thought. It may be years ago but I hope he can remember his research when he was still young.

"It has been years ago and the materials I used in those research are gone. But what I can remember is that the chosen one will be born from the royal blood line of Atlantia." Gilbert explained.

"Is there a specific criterion to be the chosen one? And where does this chosen one story originated?" I asked the questions that was bugging me. "I have heard about the bed time story or was it a fairy tale when I was a child, about the chosen one and the almighty being. My mother had told me about it."


 
Gilbert looked at me and sighed. He took his seat again and so as I. He clasped his hands and looked at me seriously.

"The bed time story that Atlantains tell their children came from a myth." Gilbert started. "I guess you have heard about the powerful being giving abundant life to this continent and its inhabitants."

"Yes, that is what it is stated in the fairy tale." I replied.

"This almighty and powerful being was said to be the founder of the Atlantian country. The Atlantians was given magical powers saying that we were his descendants. But the truth is he was the very first king of Atlantia. It is true that his origins are unknown but his achievements are widely known."

I looked at Gilbert seriously. At least he can remember about the myth and the truth behind it. It seems that there is more to the story of this almighty being and the chosen one.

"It was said that this continent was first just a barren land and living here was rough and hard. The almighty being came from who knows where, having the power to manipulate all the different kinds of elements. He was able to bring life to this barren continent and the people living here looked up to him. The almighty being taught the people different kinds of knowledge and governing. As time passed the continent was divided into four countries and three is still maintained in present day. Atlantia on the other hand was founded by the almighty being. The people that followed him, he gifted with magic abilities."

"It was gifted? Is that why our magic abilities are nothing compared to the royal family of Atlantia?" I asked.

"Yes. The royal family of Atlantia is the direct descendants of the almighty being. They have the blood of the almighty running thru their veins." Gilbert explained.


 
I was deep in thought once more. The information Gilbert was talking about is the founding of this continents four countries. The history books of every nation don’t date that far long ago. They only started with the founding of the nations and the founding family monarchs.

And to think this almighty being was the one that founded Atlantia and bestowed his subjects with magic abilities and his descendants have much more powerful magic powers.

"Is that why the royal family of Atlantia practiced incest?" I concluded. "Do they believe purer blood means more powerful magic?"

"You are correct." Gilbert nodded. "The royal family of Atlantia, because of their direct linage with the almighty being, was afraid there magic powers will weaken if they copulated with others. Well not all of them practiced incest. Some got married with other Atlantians. They were regarded as the branch families. Your mother was of the branch family. Your blood may not be pure as the almighty being’s but I am sure you have a more ample amount of magical powers than other Atlantians have."

Your blood may not be pure as the almighty being’s but I am sure you have a more ample amount of magical powers than other Atlantians have."

My eyes went wide open with this information, I didn’t know of this.

"Your mother did not tell you?" Gilbert looked at me puzzled.

I shook my head as a reply. "No, she never told me of her linage. She was afraid that I will be shunned by other people because of my Atlantian blood. I never knew I also have some royal blood flowing thru my veins."

Gilbert nodded in understanding. "Your mother was trying to protect you from the harsh criticism. I am sure she loves you dearly."

"The chosen one, does the person have to be of pure blood?" I asked earnestly.

Gilbert held his chin and was in deep thought once again.

"When I read about the prophecy in the book I was translating and deciphering, I was still young and was just starting to learn the ancient texts. It read that before the almighty being died, he said that he will come back one day when the continent was in danger. He had foreseen the destruction of this continent and the’ chosen one’, his resurrection will be the one to either save of destroy it with his own hands." Gilbert explained. "The almighty being was the one that helped this continent to prosper. In his return, if he sees that the people living here don’t deserve the prosperity he has given them, then he will purge the continent."


 
To my understanding, the ’chosen one’ will be the judge and executioner. He will be judging the inhabitants actions.

"But did the almighty one say how he will return?" I asked once again.

Gilbert was deep in thought once more.

"The ancient text when I read it in the past was vague about the chosen one. It just says it will come from the royal blood line. Back then I just concluded that the chosen one must be of pureblood and a male because the almighty was male." Gilbert concluded.

"Then does that mean there is a possibility that the chosen one can be female and not of pure blood?" I asked in earnest. I was thinking of Alicia’s display of magical power. The strength of her magic was profound even if she was not of pure blood.

Gilbert looked at me in confusion. "What do you mean your majesty? Do you have someone that you think might be the chosen one? Your fiancée perhaps?"

I nodded to Gilbert’s question.

"Alicia, I have known her since she was fourteen years old. I was there when she first manifested her powers. I saw how powerful and destructive her magic powers are first hand." I said.

I told Gilbert the occurrence since the first time I met Alicia and when she first used her magic powers. I also told him about how fast Alicia improved in the two years have taught her. I also told him on what happened to Alicia before she was abducted by the crown prince of Jennovia.

Gilbert was deep in thought once more. He nodded with every sentence I have said.


 
"It is true that this show of power is not common with a half blood, let alone a female." Gilbert said. "And it was rather late when she manifested her magical powers. Commonly, an Atlantian manifests their magical abilities at a young age."

"Yes, that is why I am thinking that maybe Alicia has a connection with the chosen one." I said.

Alicia’s fast improvement with her magic abilities is rather worrying. If we look at it now, she may be more powerful than me in the magical aspect.

"There can be a possibility that the princess may be a candidate for the chosen one. The other is the son of Queen Patricia." Gilbert said.

"If the chosen one is that b*stard, then we are already finished." I scoffed just thinking about it.

"If Prince Gladiolus is the chosen one, then that forbidden magic will be a trouble for us. I have to find a way to destroy it before he gets his hands on it. No I have to destroy it even if Alicia is the chosen one. What if that power destroys her small body?" I said. Just thinking about it brings shivers to my whole body.

"I am afraid that the forbidden magic the almighty one left can’t be destroyed that easily." Gilbert said with a serious tone.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"At the last battle on the plains, when the mad king used the forbidden magic, no one was able to control it. The power has gone berserk and destroyed the plains and the whole country of Atlantia sunk to the bottom of the sea. That destructive power destroyed a whole country. Nothing remained but destroyed ruins at the bottom of the sea." Gilbert said.

I looked at Gilbert. His words were as if he went under water and had seen the sunken country himself.


 
"Did you go to the bottom of the sea?" I asked in curiosity.

Gilbert nodded. "It was just right after the Great War ended. The country hasn’t sunk that further down. So you might know, the sea floor that was once Atlantia is sinking further down as time passes by." Gilbert explained. "After the war, I was brave and took some diving equipment to go underwater where other people were afraid of. And I saw it there, the forbidden magic was still standing there unscathed. It was still whole, as if it wasn’t affected by its self destructing explosion when it went berserk. The forbidden magic is lying dormant on the sea floor."

I was digesting such information. The forbidden magic can’t be destroyed even with its own destructive power. What if the Jennovian’s get their hands on the forbidden magic first?

"We have to get the forbidden magic first and safeguard it." I stood up alarmed.

"I am afraid that retrieving the artifact will be difficult and dangerous." Gilbert said. "It has sunk further down the depths of the sea. The current is much stronger and not only that, the last time I went there to inspect the artifact there was a creature that I have never seen before. A creature that was massive and monstrous is guarding the forbidden magic artifact. Fortunately, I was lucky o get out of here alive."

"A creature?" I asked curiously.

"Yes it was also written in the ancient text that the almighty being will leave behind a creature to guard the forbidden magic. The last time when the mad king retrieved the forbidden magic artifact, many people risked their lives and died fighting with the one that was guarding it." Gilbert explained. "It is said only the chosen one can come near it. That is why the mad king was adamant that he was the chosen one, because the creature stopped advancing when he arrived. I also thought that the mad king was the chosen one but I realized it was just because the creature was weak after the battle with the mad king’s soldiers and with the king being of pure blood, the creature succumbed to the king’s presence and breathed its last breathe."

"If it died back then, this creature under the water you speak of is a new one?" I asked.

"Well we will never know the mysteries of the almighty being. Maybe the forbidden magic created another creature to guard itself." Gilbert said.

Knowing this, I was just more convinced to get to the forbidden magic first.

"Dimitri." I called. Dimitri who was standing just behind the door came in.

"Yes your majesty." Dimitri replied.

"I want you to send your men to investigate the Atantian Sea. We need to know where is the forbidden magic and if the Jennovians are making their move to get it." I ordered.

"I will give the order right away your majesty." Dimitri bowed and left.

"I wish I have my old research notebooks and the ancient books, I could have studied about the prophecy and the forbidden magic even further." Gilbert sighed.

"I think you wish might be granted." I smiled at him. "Alicia has sent me a letter telling me about books that she found in a hidden library in Jennovia. She said it was written in characters she does not understand."

Gilbert’s face lit up. Maybe hearing that his research materials were saved made him happy.

’Then I need to give an order to extract Alicia from Jennovia. It has been so long that she has been there. It I time to bring her back to my side.’ I thought.
