Perhaps his answer arrived sooner than he anticipated as he heard the voice of a child coming from behind him. Out on the field next to the two old pillars was a young boy who so happened to slid down one of the old canals of the place. The expression of the boy as he saw him, that was an expression of someone who never viewed the world in a bad way and oh how young he was. So full of life, much like a seed with a new kind of hope, children as a matter of fact were looked up highly by adults for they are the new generation that can craft a better future. It was nice to see such adventurous youth wandering around all by themselves just for the thrill of it, he finds it adorable.
“Dear boy, I cannot answer that question for what you seek is a dragon and I believe I have not seen their like in years.” Why would someone look for a dragon? This drawn the magician’s curiosity as he looked into his eyes once more, when he did he saw something amazing about him.
This boy has an abnormally high capacity and a more concentrated amount of mana and at a young age too! Usually Maturity would accomplish such feat but this is quite rare.
“My name is Merlin, Heero, much like you I am a Magus.” Heero’s sensory seemed to be sharp too, there’s no mistaking that look in his eyes. He seek a dragon, was it a friend of his?
And finally the answer hits him right at the face, a dragon raising a child? For some reason he believed him, such a unique story he has unlike most youth who aspire to become mages themselves but has attained such title early. Well he can’t say for sure whether he’s a novice or not.
Dragons can never reach outer space, there is no air for them to use to carry the weight of their bodies and even if a Dragon managed to reach the level of space, they would float around endlessly and would have a hard time controlling and maneuvering through the stars, such actions for a dragon be suicide whether they needed breathable air or not, unless of course they are born in the cosmos. A hybrid dragon which space maneuvering capabilities…. That would be one heck of a dragon.
Perhaps his “Parent Dragon” told him that story from when he was young; it’s just that it’s not entirely true or false. It’s not proven but there’s a possibility of it. Having told the Magician his purpose, he made a forlorn expression. He must have triggered a horrible flashback.
The Magician knelt down to his height and drew a piece of cloth and wiped the drops of sweat off his face and thus putting it away. “But I do believe that finding one would be quite exciting, who knows what we might encounter here? What are the chances of it? I won’t leave you not until we search every inch of the place for any signs of your dragon alright?”
He started off taking a step further into the ruins with the boy until they were at the grand entrance that leads to its subterranean level. Before descending to the deep levels, he notices that there was a broken set up for a boundary field. He came to one of the pillars in order to examine a broken fragment of a gem, perhaps the first design of a Lacrima in earthland.
It was common knowledge that there are some stones that can be used as storage to prolong life and energy and it has a number of uses. These were made to put up a boundary field to detect magical presences and its only been recently that it was broken. There’s no mistaking that the material was centuries old, the device the stones were on were designed to drain and supply magic for the stones that shape the boundary field.
But this boundary field wasn’t designed to be a solid barrier and even if it did, the stones that form it would have lost durability. It was supposed to be some kind of detection system for any intruders who would venture down there.
Back to the point it was broken but not because the stones it was targeted… it’s because it’s been filled with another source of mana that had cancelled out its own power.
“Hmmm… so if this was powering up the field.. Heero let’s go this way first!” The Magician called him out, drawing him away from the pathway that leads down to deeper levels. Who knows what creature had taken residence in there.
