THE LUSTING WORLD - Season 1 Episode 61
Rick woke up early today. Freshening up he went down to find his parents still sleeping. Amelia was looking very beautiful in her sleep as Rick saw one of her boobs sprouting out from her upper chest covering. Rick was sporting a very heavy morning wood but since he has decided on it yesterday. He was going to let her rest a bit. If he kept using her for relieving his desires, Jeff would be taking a loss. Since technically she was still his wife. Rick will let Jeff have some fun too with his mother’s body so he didn’t wait any longer, moving to the garden he began his cultivation.
After having a normal breakfast with his family, Rick had a bath. He was alone this time as he had to leave early for his grandma’s house today. ‘Hey mom I am leaving for grandma’s house.’ ‘Take care Ryu.’ Amelia replied and Rick left his home just after his father. Walking down the street he found himself getting stares from all around him. It looked like people were on awe of his performance from the ceremony. Although Rick had no plans to become some great mage one day and all he wanted was to save his life in any kind of dangerous situations, he will not say that he didn’t like the respect in the eyes of people of Korua. He had to keep his feet on the ground and not become too cocky, ending up three feet under like an antagonist of tv dramas of earth.
Ignoring the chats going on about him, he found himself more embarrassed the longer he walked. He was wrong, no one was discussing his awesome performance from yesterday rather they were busy discussing his presentation with Nana. Realising that his dick was getting more attention then his hard earned cultivation level, Rick was not sure whom to take out his frustration on. He went on and did not stop till he reached Emily’s house. Her house was even smaller then himself. It looked like it can hold at most 2 rooms. But contrarily her garden was much bigger with lots of flowering plants all around. Rick found Emily watering the plants.
Inviting himself in he said ‘Hello grandma. I am here like you asked.’ He tried to give her a smile. He was always a little uneasy around Emily as her eyes were always looking at him like she can see through his facade at all times. Emily smiled back ‘Come Ryu take a seat in the garden itself. I will bring something to eat.’ Rick replied while setting his ass on the cool grass of the garden ‘Not required grandma. I already had my food prior to leaving home.’ ‘Okay then wait for me there, I will be done with this in a few minutes.’ she said. Rick nodded and began looking around Emily’s abode curiously.
‘So how are you feeling after your outstanding performance from yesterday kid’ Emily spoke while setting beside him. ‘It was nothing much haha’ he tried to play it cool. ‘Nothing much! Nana will be fuming with rage if she heard you haha’ Emily laughed lightly. Rick blushed a little ‘How did you..’. He wanted to ask how she knew about this but Emily cut him off with the answer ‘I was present there kid. No need to be so stiff with your granny child you can open up to me. I believe I will atleast better than your dad at understanding your problems if you are facing any.’ Rick was alerted by this why did she feel that he was facing anything?
He probed ‘why would you say that granny. I think you already know pretty much everything I am facing.’ Rick was able to fool a those people of Korua but he can’t deceive her. Last time when she was checking Rick’s mana meridians, she had felt the mana from him was very similar to dragons. First time it might have be just a coincidence but when he was releasing those mana bursts Emily was sure that she was not mistaken. But realising that Rick was not willing to share with her anything she decided to wait patiently for her grand child to open up to her. ‘Okay let’s leave that for latter. I actually pulled you up here to discuss a a different mater.’ after pausing she said ‘I would like to mentor you for your mana cultivation. What do you say?’
Rick was appalled by her sudden offer. Ryu had heard from his mother that she has been a great character once upon a time when she had fought against the beastmen alliance from the empires side. Although she managed to win a victory for her nation she had lost both her husband and her will to fight. She took an early retirement to care for her children. Once both Jeff and Ryder grew up, she became a vagabond mage. Moving from place to place in search of what only she herself knew. In that period many great mages approached her to guide their ward personally but she refused each time. Hence Rick was finding it dubious why she would ask to mentor him suddenly. Familial ties can’t be the reason for this as Kyro would have been offered the same but for now he has not got any confirmation from her about that.
But whatever might be her reasons truth was he can’t refuse her. Firstly he was very intimidated with her and he didn’t find it in himself to say no to her face. That might actually make her double down on her suspicions. Secondly Amelia might directly murder him if she found out about this. He had himself seen the anticipation in her eyes when she Emily decided to check his meridians. In her mind Amelia always wanted to get Emily to teach her kids. If she learnt that her own kid refused the offer Rick was doubtful that she might not be able to keep her sanctity in front of him. So he got no choice to speak of.
‘Yes grandma. Is that even a thing to ask. Mom has always told me about your feats in the wars and it will be a fortune to be taught by you.’ He hurriedly kowtowed to her. He has lived here enough to know the specific sets of customs followed here. ‘Haha Although I find your words a little superfluous but I will take that as a yes.’ she said after a pause ‘Now come closer to me and start circulating your mana.’ Emily replied while tugging her hair strands behind her ears. Rick saw his grandma might still give ladies of the town a run for they money. Her hair was all white but that was naturally so and not because of her age, Rick had heard Amelia say that. She loved to wear white he felt all her attire was white only.
After analysing the beauty of his grandmother Rick quickly did as she told. Truthfully speaking he can’t even dream to try to do things with her that he can pull off with Amelia. Her personality will simply not allow that. Emily out her hands on Rick and began focussing her mind on his circulating mana. Yes this time Emily was sure about her theory. This was definitely a dragons mana circulating within him. But why? She was very confused. She already knew Rick was not her real grandson. However much Amelia and Jeff deny that, there is simply nothing that can be hidden from a powerful mage like her. But that was not her main concern. What intrigued her was that he was still a human child after all then how come he can command dragon mana.
She decided to dig a little deeper and sent her mana to probe his reserves but she can feel a force trying to repel her from there. Being aware that it might hurt him if she try to force her way in, she figured to give it up. ‘Now I will teach you a circulation technique. I will guide your mana with mine for the first few times try to remember it.’ Without waiting for Rick’s approval she began sending her mana inside him and led it through his pathways. Rick was all too familiar with this feeling. He learnt it within the first time. But waited for Emily to repeat it as many times as she liked. He had realised that it might be that, his grandma might have not noticed that he already had a cultivation technique and decided to share hers with him.
Rick had a feeling that however much powerful Emily might be she must not be on par with the dragon. He can find that from the tone of the dragon itself. It looked to him that he won’t even put the whole human empire in his eyes say less of a single mage. Thus he was not ber optimistic towards her cultivation technique. But anyway he registered this in his heart as this too was a show of great kindness towards him. ‘Did you remember it?’ ‘Yes grandma.’ he replied hurriedly. ‘Good once… ‘ Before she can continue with her sentence Rick heard someone speak in a loud voice ‘Please allow us entry oh great water mage Emily.’
