Book I – Legend, Chapter 27 – Show Us Your Strength

“Is that the extent of your ambition? You’ll need far more than that to tear apart the fabric of space and time, Trill loser. Is this a game to you? Well, whatever, I suppose it’s a start,” Sylvester Tricko once again failed to spare Jodye Trill any dignity at all, “With me here helping you achieving greatness is merely a matter of time.”

“Okay, you should head over to the other side now. Normally, your space and ours should be separate. However, since your fusion is on the legacy level, it gets to exist within your space.” said Xavier before running and jumping up, as he disappeared into the third page of the grimoire.

“To be more specific, your consciousness has already fused with the consciousness of that over-sized lizard,” mocked Sylvester.

“Legacy level?” asked Jodye Trill, who felt some incomprehensible anger from Sly calling Janair Mazi a lizard. This reminded him! When he asked Trippy about the “dual” and “perfect” statuses, Trippy ignored him and simply answered for the “legacy” status. Thinking up to here, he subconsciously looked at Sylvester.

“You’ll figure it out,” Sylvester Tricko laid on the ground and closed his eyes.

Hearing Sylvester, Jodye was further frustrated. However, he walked over to the other side obediently. He had an abnormally large sense of trust for the young sky wolf. Right before crossing the dividing line, he stopped abruptly. He then turned his body to look at the giant grimoire hanging wide open in the starry void. Jodye received the strangest sensation as he was about to cross to the other side. The [Cosmos Revolving Grimoire] seemed to be calling out to him.

As he neared the grimoire, it also floated lower to accommodate himself, until it met Jodye right in front of his face. This huge ancient tome was not as massive as it was on the Destiny Platform. However, it remained that it was half his current size at four feet tall. The grimoire did not speak to Jodye Trill. Instead, they seemed to have a telepathic connection. He could feel what the grimoire’s intent was as if the information was being written on his soul.

The grimoire needed a password so that he could summon it out. Jodye remembered that Pharaoh’s Law4Lawthe rules and principles that create, govern, and maintain the energies of the universe. When laws come into harmony they form different systems naturally, with as many functions as the laws in harmony. For laws to enter a state of harmony, they must be compatible and have a proper conduit such as a star, or anything with its own unique Origin source law. With a good enough conduit it is possible to make incompatible laws reach a state of harmony, but in such a scenario there is a high chance of the force turning cancerous. The condensation of law energy produces what is known as Force or Qi.. had registered the name Trippy of its own accord, likely for the same purpose. The difference being that he was using the urban jargon of his past life at the time, not speaking literally.

“Cosmo.” After speaking there was a message waiting in Jodye’s mind.

‘Cosmo, registered.’

Jodye Trill then tried to will the grimoire to answer his questions. The grimoire flipped to its first page, which then lit up in ancient looking hieroglyphics. This wasn’t the first time that Jodye noticed variations of this writing that he could vaguely identify with. Upon closer inspections, all the hieroglyph characters were made up out of many tiny runes that moved around as if they had a life.

To Jodye Trill’s surprise, he somehow understood every word that was written. This was apparently due to his telepathic link with the grimoire, he honestly didn’t need to read it. However, being studious as he was, Jodye still tried to understand the intricacies within. Since the grimoire explained to him what these words meant, he memorized this knowledge so he would be able to figure it out later.

“The perfect status refers to the level of synchronization, there are five, wow!” Jodye read, visibly surprised, “a perfect synchronization just means that the souls are fully cooperative and possess unlocked consciousness! The rarest of the rare statuses. Thus the benefits are greater! How awesome. The dual just means that I was baptized in chaotic force by both source artifacts.”

In the end, Jodye wasn’t so impressed with the new information, but the grimoire itself was worthy of exploration. He shook his head walked back to the other side. However, he suddenly stopped and glanced back at the artifact, “This tome has three core source abilities, and the first is the source ability Summoner. Each ability has a set number of seals, with Summoner possessing eight.”

Jodye’s eyes brightened, but he moved on none the less. There was no information on how to unlock neither source abilities nor the accompanying seals.

After crossing to the other side, Jodye Trill felt his mind surge with surprising strength. His thoughts were more evident than ever, and the flow of his thinking was even smoother. He felt as if the speed and depth of his ideas had increased by about 45%. What in the heavens and earth was going on?

“Welcome Host. First and second seals of Pharaoh’s Law have been released.
Activating Pharaoh’s Law will result in spiritual force augmentation.
Current limit: 1 level.
Meditating within Host Space will grant host 25% of the first seal’s augmentation, without summoning Pharaoh’s Law,” the robotic voice of Trippy echoed through space before Jodye had a chance to ponder.

Jodye Trill was dumbstruck. So this was only 25% of the augmentation? It was that strong?! Xavier thought the grimoire was a cheat code? No this, this was a cheat code. If he could improve his spirit by activating Pharaoh’s Law, then would he ever deactivate it?

“Responding to Host query: To activate source artifacts one must consume heavenly power.
As long as Host has enough energy to endure, the source artifact will stay active.”

Well, as they say: There is no such thing as a free lunch. Jodye knew it wouldn’t be so simple. He looked at the large nimbus cloud hiding the huge dragon egg within. He could feel it resonated with himself on a spiritual level, pulsating like a heartbeat. He still felt as if it was himself inside the hard shell, slowly accumulating momentum.

“It’s been quite a while, I think. I should return.” As this thought occurred to Jodye Trill, a majestic looking sparkly bone throne, perfect for his size, appeared in the sky a few meters away from Pharaoh’s Law. With a thought, Jodye was sitting in the seat. He instantly felt connected to his body once more. Suddenly, he remembered a particular issue.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

“I have a question, Sly,” Jodye Trill raised his voice to call out to the sky wolf pup. The latter opened his eyes to meet Jodye’s gaze from a distance. Jodye could feel his intent, and continued, “I read that one can only have a maximum of 36 doors of origin. I seem to have 40. Was the knowledge recorded here just wrong? It seems unlikely that they would be so mistaken.”

“Hmph,” Sylvester closed his eyes once more, no longer caring about Jodye, “The answer to your mystery is right beneath you. You now walk the path of the Draco Volos. Leave me.”

Jodye was baffled briefly, before glancing at the enormous magical egg. At that moment Jodye Trill seemed to come to a realization, as his mind finally relaxed and his consciousness retracted from the Host Space. Opening his eyes, he found himself in the same meditation posture as before. Only his surroundings had changed slightly. He was no longer eclipsed in a cloud of darkness, but back in the room he initially woke up in.

“Welcome back, my little heartbeat,” Who could this bell-like voice belong to, if not Jodye’s mother, Isis Trilleck. She wore a glamorous sky blue dress and was seated elegantly at a table, drinking tea.

Jodye Trill jumped up and ran to his mother, hugging her long leg that seemed to be made of the most beautiful jade. The latter put down her cup and picked her son up into her lap to hug him back.

“It’s good that you’re fine, it’s good that you’re fine.” Lady Isis released a radiant smile from the bottom of her heart, tears welling up in her eyes.

As Jodye looked up at this now fondly familiar face, he felt an intense blood connection for the first time in two lives. This woman was his mother. He could feel the pure love she had for him warming the deepest parts of his soul. Suddenly his eyes begin to water as well. For someone who grew up as an orphan, surrounded by evil and treacherous people, to suddenly gain his own authentic, loving family, that doted on him so heavily was a truly wonderful feeling.

At this moment, Jodye officially accepted his role as Joseph Trilleck. He was the third child of the lord of House Trilleck and son of the first wife. If there were no mistakes, then Jodye was the most eligible to be heir to the house. This was his home. This place is the start of his story. If he becomes a legend one day, it would be him the wolves bow down too!

Finally coming to terms with his fate, Jodye Trill separated his head from his mother’s bosom and asked, “Where’s pops at?”

The next thing Jodye heard was a round of boisterous laughter as two men, one young and majestic and the other old and noble, appeared from the shadow of lady Isis.

“So you’re finally able to remember your old man, ey? Excellent,” said House Lord Osiris Trilleck, as a magic wind wrapped around Jodye Trill like a pair of hands, and lifted him from his mother’s lap, gently placing him on the ground. “Now, come kid. Show us your strength.”
