CURSED IMMORTALITY - Season 1 Episode 10
Only this energy can give him an accurate feeling of his inner body, but I could also move freely in the same section of his body that this energy crossed after Jacob’s weeks of practice.
It was like he was opening block paths or just forging alternative pathways inside his body for this energy that was born in his heart.
Right now, the energy was slowly moving toward Jacob’s hand from his left forearm. If he wanted to retract it, he could easily do it while taking the same path it came from.
However, he won’t do it because he wants to see what will happen when this strange energy enters his palm or fingers.
Will it come out, or was it something else, not just an energy?
Jacob had many questions like this, and one of his biggest fear was this energy was actually the Bloodstorming bug that once entered his heart. But he was uncertain about it because he didn’t know what had happened after passing out that day.
He didn’t see the Bloodstorming Bug coming out of his body that day, but he felt that it wasn’t coming out, but deep inside, he didn’t want that at all.
Because if it was the Bloodstorming Bug, he might not be able to control it after it came out of his body or even harm him. He wanted this thing to be energy like magic or something like that, just as he read in all those novels.
Nonetheless, he was willing to take this risk because this might be his only way out of there, or Decker might kill him after getting satisfactory results.
Day fifty-three days.

The energy finally entered Jacob’s palm this day, and when he moved it toward his thumb.
However, at this moment, he could finally measure its accurate length. It was only three inches long, while its width he had found out two days ago that it was as thin as a hair strand or probably thinner.
As for how he found out, he had seen it with his own eyes. Then, two days ago, he caught a glimpse of it in the reflection of his glass cell, but only for a moment. But it was enough for Jacob to see a very thin line moving toward his hand, just like one of his veins.
This also relieved Jacob that it wasn’t that bug, and he thought Decker didn’t leave it inside his body.
Which also raised the same question again. Just what was it? Could it really be energy like magic or mana?
Although Jacob was a little afraid, he was also excited. His old heart was filled with anticipation. He wanted it to be something like magical energy.
At this moment, the energy has ultimately reached the tip of his thumbnail. However, it didn’t go further. No matter how much Jacob focuses, it just won’t budge from that spot.
Which made Jacob’s heart sink, and all his hopes were shattered. However, at this moment, something happened that caught Jacob entirely off guard!
His thumb suddenly… twitched!
Jacob’s pupils dilated and shimmered with sudden realization.
He again tried to move his hand, but it was still stuck like always. Finally, when he focused on his thumb, he could quickly move it around free, but it wasn’t completely free, and only the part which was covered with that strand of energy was completely free!

But this much was enough to make Jacob almost mad with ecstasy because, from the moment he came into this world, he was never able to control his body except his eyelids and eyeballs.
Some mysterious power constantly restricted him, and his absolute control was in Decker’s hand.
However, now suddenly, he managed to move his thumb without restriction. This naturally left him with great delight.
Yet, his excitement didn’t last long as he returned to his calm self. He quickly retracted that energy in the center of his palm and sent it toward his index finger.
He wanted to ensure that this energy could free him from this mysterious restriction. But, unfortunately, after the energy left his thumb, it returned to the same restricted self, and Jacob was again helpless as before.
However, he only paid attention momentarily to this and again turned his focus toward his index finger.
After a while, the energy finally reached his index fingertip and was again blocked from coming out. But Jacob’s focus wasn’t on it. After he tried to move his index finger, he was elated when his index finger curved slightly under his control!
‘So, this sliver of energy can really render these restrictions useless, but it’s only a sliver, and I can’t seem to be able to increase it, and I can only move it around my body.’ Jacob was perplexed.
He felt just like someone who had just seen a ray of light but found out there was a bottomless abyss between him and that light.
Suddenly, a thought surfaced in Jacob’s old mind, ‘This restriction is not physical, then it had to be abstract, right? Since I can examine the inside of my body with this energy, can I find that mysterious restriction place of me with it and even fight it with this energy?!’
Jacob’s eyes brightened at this moment, and even his heartbeat increased significantly. He just couldn’t get this thought off his head after it came. Without hesitation, the sliver of energy returned to the heart at a lightning-fast speed.
This was one of the reasons Jacob felt this wasn’t some bug or anything: he could retract it with just a thought, and its speed was almost unimaginable inside his body. That’s why he thought of it as mysterious energy and magic.
Nonetheless, it wasn’t his main concern right now. So he tried to send this energy toward his head where the restriction was, and he was a hundred percent sure about it.
However, the moment the energy tried to go upward from his neck, it suddenly stuck there as if a mysterious barrier was stopping it.
Jacob had never had this kind of feeling before, and he knew something was not right!
