Numerous peculiar energies converged within Kai’s nascence space before dispersing wildly in all directions. Kai watched the energy intently, uncertain about its nature or purpose. “What sort of power is this? It seems impossible to refine or evade. It’s truly peculiar.”
Kai furrowed his brows as he observed the power that was getting stronger within his nascence space. Suddenly, Kai’s mind buzzed, and he was overcome by a dazed sensation.
The energy came straight for Kai and covered him whole. Kai shook his head, and suddenly, there was a bright light before his eyes.
“Kai, what are you doing? Hurry, it’s time to go to school,” Hannah said as she slapped his head.
“Mom? Why are you here?” Kai could barely hide his surprise. Hannah chided, “What nonsense are you talking about? Where else could I be? You’re going to be late for school!”
“Mom, I-I shouldn’t be…” Kai approached Hannah, intending to stop her and ask questions. Just as he reached out to touch Hannah, a streak of light flashed before his eyes, and the scene around him shifted once more.
Josephine glared at him and said, “Hey, don’t you know how to walk? Why didn’t you watch your way?” Kai stared at her in a daze. “Is it you, Josephine? Am I imagining things?”
He excitedly leaped toward her.
“Hey! Get away from me, you jerk!” Josephine screamed in fear. Soon, the scene before him changed yet again. Kai’s past unfolded before his eyes like a moving picture. He saw the faces of Tommy, Phoenix, Flaxseed, Cecilia, and many others.
They appeared not to recognize him as if he had been transported back to a time before they had ever met. “Don’t go! Don’t leave me!” Kai shouted. He didn’t understand why these people didn’t seem to know him.
He ran after them like a madman.
“Mr. Chance? Mr. Chance!”
Suddenly, Faiyar’s voice rang out. Kai’s body quivered, and the scene that had unfolded before his eyes vanished. He found himself back in his own nascence space, still surrounded by the energy.
“Was that a dream?” Kai muttered with his brows furrowed. “Mr. Chance, you weren’t dreaming. You were ensnared by an illusion spell and came dangerously close to being unable to break free!” Faiyar exclaimed, his voice laced with concern.
“An illusion spell?” Kai was taken aback. It didn’t take him long to grasp the situation. His eyes sparkled with understanding as he looked at the energy enveloping him.
“Oh, I see. I finally understand now.”
Kai’s lips curved as he relaxed, allowing the energy to envelop him yet again. This time, Kai still saw scenes from the past flashing across his eyes.
However, his vision remained clear, and he chanted the calming incantation to make sure he wouldn’t be affected by what he saw. After some time, the scene around Kai gradually returned to its normal state, and the turbulent energy subsided.
Another gray planet within Kai’s nascence space suddenly flickered, drawing in the surrounding energy like a powerful vortex.
After the energy was sucked in, the planet became bright. Kai looked up at the galaxy above him, where three planets now radiated with brilliant light.
“Illusion nascence…” Kai’s face lit up with a triumphant smile. “With this, I’ll be able to enhance the potency of my illusion spells.”
Illusion spells had always been about beguiling the mind and distorting judgment. However, when they were not sufficiently advanced, illusions were of no use against those with strong mental fortitude.
Now, Kai possessed the illusion nascence, which enabled him to ensnare even mightier foes when casting illusion spells.
