Jason had to face the cruel reality but it was hard to accept.
He felt as if his whole world shattered. He wasn ’t that ambitious to get a heaven-defying soulbond as his first bond but a one-star wild beast????!!? Even the worst Novice ranks were able to defeat them and such a beast would become his livelong partner?
Adept ranks were able to defeat the strongest five-star wild beast without much effort as their physique alone was much stronger than these beasts and now, Jason would only be able to form a soulbond with a newborn one-star wild beast at most?… He couldn ’t believe his ears but somehow he knew that this wasn′t a lie and the cruel reality.
The old man didn ’t try to sugarcoat Jason′s situation as he had to overcome this crisis alone.
He believed that this situation wasn′t the worst outcome at all as he had seen many youths with a soul that could only hold one soulbond in total with a soul energy only slightly stronger than Jason′s
Having the advantage to possess many beasts with the disadvantage of an extremely weak beast as a starter was better than the former unfortunate ones.
The old man was firmly convinced that the young man in front of him wasn ’t ordinary as Jason′s eyes seemed to be special traits in his opinion.
Otherwise, the old man couldn′t understand why there was so much mana assembled around his eye area.
Changing the subject, everyone inside the room listened to him while Jason could only hear him faintly.
”Let ’s go to the beast hatchery where both of you can choose your first soulbond.
While the old man said this Jason stood up and walked down the altar lifelessly.
Greg saw this and ran to him asking ”Hey dude, are you okay? ”
Obviously, Jason wasn ’t doing fine but he forced a smile and said ”Yeah of course. ”
Jason wasn′t sure why Greg was worried about him but he didn′t care about that at the moment.
The old man walked past the two youths who noticed him and followed quietly.
Greg had to support Jason slightly while Greg′s family followed both of them rather quietly.
His mother whispered ”How unfortunate… I′ve never seen such a beautiful and large soul….Honey, do you think he will be able to overcome the problem with his weak soul energy somehow? I can ’t think of any good solution except forming a contract with a good potential soulbond or training the Heaven′s Hell technique for many years until it shows results.
But finding a beast with potential one among one-star wild beasts is more unlikely than finding a needle in a haystack even for us and we can′t even help out during the whole beast selection process… Another one would be increasing his rank but this would also take a long time even with resources ”
The man answered after thinking for a short moment ”Other than forming a contract with a high potential beast, ranking up and practicing the Heaven′s Hell technique over a long time, he would have to find high graded magical treasures which could increase one ’s soul energy but other than being extremely rare they cost a fortune.
I don ’t think we would be able to afford one with our whole fortune even if our son had a soul like this youth has… It ’s a pity to lose a promising soul like that to such weak soul energy.
If he works hard maybe he can form a second soulbond in a few years but honestly, I wouldn′t be confident in doing something like that. ”
While Greg supported Jason, Jason′s mind was in his huge soul world the whole time.
Other than being disappointed, Jason had to acknowledge the fact that his soul looked really beautiful and magnificent, while the golden color was able to calm him down as he looked around…. This however made his heart hurt even more because his soul energy was too weak and he wasn ’t sure what to do with it…
But he didn ’t want to cry and rather than crying Jason wanted to find a solution to his problem.
Crying wouldn′t help him but solving the problem.
Releasing himself out of Greg′s support Jason straightened his back while thinking about solutions but there weren ’t many.
Purchasing a high-graded magical treasure was out of his options as they were way too expensive and forming a contract with a high potential one-star wild beast relied on his luck.
Approximately hundreds of stairs later, they entered another room that was even more gigantic than the soul-awakening hall.
But this place wasn ’t as quiet as before and Jason who could only see slightly through the bandage because of his blood was astonished to see thousands of colors radiating from eggs and small beasts inside small landscapes filled with faint mana.
His head began to ache again and Jason turned off his eyes effect which saw the radiating color of beasts.
In the second he had activated the effect of his eyes Jason noticed that some beasts radiated a stronger color than others even if they were from the same race.
`What does that mean?` was what Jason thought but he couldn ’t find a solution.
Thinking about the effect Jason looked around again without having his eyes activated.
He stopped for a moment and after a short moment, he noticed the mana fluctuations of a wolf mother with five cubs next to her.
That was at least what Jason could see from the mana flow and activating his eyes effect for a short moment he began to analyze the cubs thoroughly.
The wolf gave birth to all five cubs but Jason noticed that the radiating color was different from two of them.
While three cubs had the same color one was more distinct and denser but still the same color while another cub had a completely different color which was even denser compared to the previously mentioned wolf cub.
Many thoughts run through Jason ’s head as Greg and the old man notice his behavior.
The old man explained
”This is a blazing horned wolf mother with its five cubs. It ’s an evolved ranked beast.
Two cubs are slightly special while one has inherited a slightly superior bloodline the other cub underwent a mutation which made it stronger. ”
Greg listened carefully as this information could be useful for his choice.
” Can you show me which one sir thinks is the stronger one out of these two special cases? ”
Jason also listened but his question confused Greg while the old man smiled faintly
The old man knew that Jason had special eyes since the beginning as he had seen many humans with special traits and he thought Jason had simple mana eyes which could see that one beast had slightly stronger mana radiating from it.
A small stream of mana left his body and Jason saw a finger formed out of mana pointing at the cub with the superior bloodline.
But Jason saw something different.
His eyes or rather the radiating color told him that the mutated cub had a denser color and a ”Why? ” left his mouth without thinking.
The old man was still calm and explained.
”Having a superior bloodline indicates the high possibility to evolve into higher ranked beasts while having a mutation can backfire. Some mutations are powerful while other mutations are harmful to certain aspects.
Furthermore, mutations can evolve when the cub grows stronger and in our case, the cub ’s mutation is still in its initial phase while it′s not seen as a very good mutation it could further mutate in a bad way. ”
”Ahh ” Jason and Greg exclaimed at the same time.
