After training, Victor and Scathach walked towards the bathroom for a shower.
”Ugh, every time I fight you, I feel like I ’m not strong enough, ” Victor complained as he straightened his body a little.
”…If you were strong enough to fight me in just six months, I would doubt my very existence… ” Scathach was completely honest now.
”Hahahaha, that would be an interesting sight. ” Victor chuckled and treated it as a joke.
”… ” Scathach just looked at Victor with a dry look. She wasn ’t kidding, you know? She would really doubt her existence if he got that strong in just a few months.
”Although we ’ve been training for a while, I was missing it, ” Victor said. Even though training was like torture, it was always fun to train with his mother-in-law.
”Oh? I thought you ’d say you don ’t like training with me like my daughters… ” Scathach ’s face darkened, it might not look like it, but she didn ’t like what her daughters showed at all.
’Perhaps I should do even more difficult training… ’ Scâthach ’s way of acting was quite simple.
If her daughters didn ’t like it, she should just hit it harder, and if they complain again, hit it even harder!
Push, Push, Push! No time to complain!
She was a Spartan!
”Never, I like training with you, ” Victor spoke with a big, gentle smile on his face.
”I see… ” Scathach flashed a small smile as she looked away.
”Honestly. I had forgotten how difficult it was to learn to wield a weapon I ’m not used to… ” Victor muttered.
”That ’s normal, you ’ve gotten too used to using the Greatsword. Now that you ’ve tried to switch to the spear, a weapon you ’re not used to, you ’re going to feel uncomfortable. ” Scathach explained.
”Yeah, I never thought learning how to use the spear would be so difficult. ” Victor made a strange expression since he felt that the spear was very incompatible with him.
’Maybe I should try another weapon? Perhaps a western sword? Or even modern weapons? ’ Victor felt he had plenty of room to improve yet, he wanted to be something like Scathach, a master of all weapons.
Although for him to achieve this feat would take thousands of years.
’Wrong, wrong. ’ Victor shook his head several times and realized he was rushing again. He knew that rushed training was never good.
’I must take Baby steps, one step at a time. First, I will master the martial arts I have now. ’ Victor thought he should master spearmanship, swordsmanship, and the martial arts he ’d learned from Scathach.
He was trying to do several things at the same time, and because of that, he was failing. He must do one thing at a time.
As one sage has said in the past: ’Haste is the enemy of perfection. ’
”…I honestly wanted Ruby to hear what you said now, I wonder what her reaction would be… ” Scathach flashed a wry smile.
”Huh? What do you mean? ” Victor didn ’t understand what Scathach was trying to tell him.
”Nothing. ” Scathach spoke.
Although Victor was complaining that it had been difficult to learn to fight with a new weapon, he had gone from someone completely new to someone experienced at using a spear in just a few fights with Scathach.
’The pace at which he evolves is too fast… Although I won ’t tell him that, I don ’t want to boost his ego further. ’ Scathach thought as she glanced at Victor out of the corner of her eye.
’Ahhh, what a waste… ’ Scathach thought as she looked at Victor.
She thought that if he had been born in a more chaotic time like she was born into, he would ’ve evolved much faster and more consistently than he would do today. As there was no conflict in the world these days, Victor hadn ’t progressed much after his training with Scathach six months ago.
Although Scathach ’s opinion of ’evolution ’ was completely different from people today, from her perspective as someone who knew of Victor ’s abilities and characteristics, Victor ’s current development was good…. But not good enough.
’How can someone with the blood of the king of the night evolve so slowly? ’ That was Scathach ’s thinking since, as someone who knew the stories of this special blood, she placed high expectations on Victor.
’He ’s still weak! But it ’s okay… He has me, as long as I have him around, I ’ll always force him to get stronger… ’ Scathach flashed a scary smile. Even she didn ’t know why she wanted him to get stronger, but one thing she is sure of is:
’It ’ll be fun when he ’s strong enough to handle fighting me without me holding back too long. ’
For others of the current era, the pace at which Victor evolved was completely unrealistic.
How does a 21-year-old vampire already have the power of a 500-year-old adult vampire? And how did this same vampire fight a 1900-year-old countess and live to tell the tale!?
Okay, the countess wasn ’t using all her power, but still! It was an impressive achievement.
Arriving in front of the bathroom, Victor opened the door and entered with Scathach.
Victor and Scathach stood back to back as they removed their clothes.
[Master, shall I leave…?] Kaguya asked, as, currently, she was in Victor ’s shadow.
After the previous incident, she rarely left Victor ’s shadow since she felt more comfortable in his shadow, and she didn ’t know why.
”Hmm, just do what you want. ” Victor didn ’t really have an opinion about it, and most of the time let his maid do as she pleased.
[Okay, I ’ll stay then.] Kaguya decided to stay in Victor ’s shadow.
”I ’m curious about something, ” Victor spoke as he took off the suit he was wearing.
”How does a noble vampire make new vampires? ” That was a question Victor always had, but he hadn ’t had a chance to ask it before.
”… ” Scathach was silent as she turned her face and looked towards Victor ’s back.
”Why do you want to know that? ” If a gaze could bore holes, Victor ’s body would be Swiss cheese right now.
”I ’m curious, ” Victor spoke honestly.
”… ” Scathach ’s eyes began to glow blood red, ”You ’re asking me this because of that conversation you talked about creating new vampires? ”
”Yeah, that ’s about it too, ” Victor spoke in a neutral tone.
Somehow, that ”Heh ” of Scathach sent shivers down Victor ’s spine.
’Maybe I should have taken it harder in his training… ’ Scathach ’s eyes weren ’t pretty now.
”Scathach? ” Victor turned and looked at the woman.
The moment Scathach saw Victor turning to her, she glanced toward the closet.
”…? ” Victor looked at Scathach ’s back, confused since he was sure the woman had been looking at him a few seconds ago.
”So? How does a noble vampire make a new vampire? ”
”… ” Realizing that avoiding this topic would not satisfy Victor ’s curiosity, the woman said:
”You need special ingredients to make a new vampire. ”
”Tell me more. ”
”Tsk…Fine. ” She turned to face Victor and held up her finger, ”First, you need the blood of the ’Clan ’ leader. Second, you need several special ingredients that prevent the human body from rejecting vampire venom and dying. Third, you need to know how to perform the witches ’ ritual. Fourth, the human must be a virgin. ”
”Hmm, this is complicated, huh. ” Victor put his hand on his chin. He had an annoyed look on his face and thought it would be easier, something like:
Oh, the human is a virgin. Then he would bite this human and Voila! This human turned into a vampire! Simple, right!?
”As you are the leader of your Clan, you can use your blood, so all you need are the ingredients and the knowledge of how to perform the ritual. ”
”Hmm… ” Victor kept making that sound for a few seconds.
’Tsk, why is this so complicated? Violet made it seem so easy in her memories… ’ Victor thought.
”… ” Scathach looked at Victor for a few seconds, while she seemed to be thinking of something: ”There is another method that is only available to those who have the blood of the Night King. ”
”Oh? ” Victor looked at Scathach again.
”Find a virgin human, bite them, and turn them into a vampire, as you have the blood of the Night King, the transformation has a 100% chance of succeeding. ”
”… ” An awkward silence fell around.
”You ’re kidding, right? ”
”I am not. ”
”And what was that explanation a few seconds ago? ” Victor ’s eyes twitched a lot.
”That was the normal method that the king of vampires along with the queen of witches developed to control the birth of other vampires, ” Scathach explained.
”…Why would he do something so complicated? ”
”A few millennia ago, if someone wanted to turn humans into vampires, the noble vampires just had to bite humans and put their venom in them. ”
”And…? ” Victor was a little impatient.
”Don ’t interrupt me. ” Scathach ’s eyes gleamed a little.
”Yes, Yes. ” Victor rolled his eyes.
”… ” Isn ’t this boy very rude? Should I take him to a torture session? Of course, by torture session, she was talking about training.
After some thought, she decided that no, after all, that would not be a punishment for Victor.
”The problem is: Noble vampires are different from you. ”
”Because of your blood, you can turn any virgin human into a vampire, but with noble vampires, it doesn ’t happen the same way… For a noble vampire to turn someone into a vampire, they need to play a gambling game where the chance of going wrong is 80%. ”
”Example: The moment the noble vampire bites a human, if the human resists the vampire ’s poison, they will become a vampire. If they couldn ’t resist… ”
”Well, they will die.. ”
”Thousands of humans have died in the past because of this. ”
”And that was one of the reasons that in the past there was a war between humans and vampires. ”
”To prevent another war from happening in the future, the king together with the queen of witches created this system of ’ritual ’, although it is a little more difficult, the success rate is 100%. ”
”You just need a few ingredients, know how to do the ritual, and the blood of the clan leader, and voila, you can make a vampire slave. ”
”Hmm. ” Victor understood a little, but he still had some doubts, ”So there are three rituals? ”
”I ’m talking about the marriage ritual, the one that transfers bloodlust from the male vampire to the female vampire, and the ritual of transformation from human to vampire. ”
”And the ritual to turn the vampire who was human before into a slave. ”
”Oh, you ’re talking about that. ” Scathach placed her hand to her chin and gathered her thoughts, then she said, ”Actually, this is all part of just one ritual. ”
”Example, if I want to turn a human into a slave vampire, I just change the letters of the magic circle and bite the Human and inflict them with my venom. ”
”Now, if I want to marry a male vampire, I just have to do the same thing, and the male vampire and I must bite each other. When our respective venoms enter into each other ’s blood, the ritual will be activated, thus allowing our bloodlust to be directed at each other. ”
”I see… ” Victor put his hand on his chin and thought about why Vlad decided to do this; a few seconds passed, and he said:
”The king created the ritual to prevent the vampires from ending up at war with ’their food ’. ”
”Yes. That ’s basically it, vampires are beings prone to easily lose control of their bloodlust, especially the younger ones. ”
”I remember in the past, younger vampires would go to the human world to feed on humans, but because they didn ’t know how to do things correctly when feeding on humans, they ended up applying their venom to the humans. And, in most cases, these humans died due to the high death rate of the venom. But those who didn ’t die turned into vampires and ended up causing chaos in the world. ”
”I see… ”
[That wasn ’t taught to me…] Kaguya spoke.
”What do you mean? ”
”Huh? ” Scathach looked at Victor ’s shadow, then said something, ”Ah, that maid, huh? ”
[I learned all the vampire stories while I was training to be a maid, but I don ’t remember that.]
”Kaguya said she didn ’t learn this while training to be a maid. ”
”Oh, of course, she doesn ’t know that. The king used his Charm to make all the vampires of the time forget about that method, he just didn ’t do it to his children and me. ” Scathach turned away, then began stripping all of her clothes off again.
”Did he even do this to the vampire counts? ”
’Monster!!! ’ Victor ’s smile grew, but he had one question:
”Why didn ’t he do that to his kids too? ”
”He was always a doting father. ”
”… ” Victor opened his mouth a little, then he flashed a wry smile and didn ’t judge Vlad too much. Why didn ’t he?
Because Victor knew he would do the same if he was in Vlad ’s position, just imagining altering the brain of one of his sons or daughters left him with a bad taste in his mouth.
Victor soon returned to undressing, and when the two were completely naked, they entered the bathroom.
