“I understand. Thank you, Hildegard, for your warning,” Jagoan said.
Although there were some regrets after this illusion mirror enlightenment, Jagoan’s strength greatly increased, and his compatibility with Bloodreaper also improved a lot. Even though he had not been able to break through to the half-step grandmaster level, he was fully confident in taking on those who were at that level.
If he were to collaborate with Bloodreaper, even slaying a grandmaster would be possible.
“Leanna, go and see how Birgitta is doing over there,” Hildegard said.
Leanna naturally understood that Hildegard had somethlng to discuss with Jagoan privately, so she tactfully left the room.
After Leanna’s figure disappeared, Hildegard spoke up, “Jagoan, I have two things to give you…”
Upon saying that, she brought out a long wooden box. “This is the thunder talisman. Just inject your spiritual power into it, and it can be activated. It can harm grandmasters and is particularly effective against evil spirits.”
She added, “As for this Thunder Sword, it is made from thunderwood. As a swordsman, you should know more about it than I do.”
Hildegard unsheathed the Thunder Sword as she spoke, causing Bloodreaper in Jagoan’s hand to suddenly shake.
Startled, he quickly suppressed it, and once Bloodreaper had calmed down, Jagoan turned his attention to the contents of the wooden box.
If they were to talk about the Thunder Talisman, he would only marvel at its incredible power. But if they were to talk about the Thunder Sword, it was considered a rare and precious treasure.
Only the branches of a thousand-year-old tree that had survived a lightning strike could be called thunderwood. Not to mention how rare a thousand-year old tree was, the mere fact that the branch survived after being struck by lightning was a one-in-a-million occurrence.
After being baptized by lightning, the thunderwood’s hardness surpassed that of ordinary steel several times over, and when it was forged into a sword, the pure energy it contained would be thoroughly unleashed. It was a mortal enemy of evil spirits.
Thinking of this, Jagoan quickly refused. “Hildegard, you have already given me a great opportunity just now. These two items are too precious. I dare not accept them…”
Although his attitude was firm, Hildegard did not retract her offer. “Don’t hurry to refuse me, just take a look at this Thunder Sword first.”
Unsure of what to expect, Jagoan reached out and took it. However, the moment his fingers touched the sword, Bloodreaper once again violently shook uncontrollably, and the nimbus on the Thunder Sword suddenly dissipated.
“Uh…” At this point, Hildegard spoke up again, “Do you feel it? Your divine weapon Bloodreaper also has a spirit, and as your compatibility with it increases, the sword spirit will become stronger. This is the best proof!”
When Jagoan saw that Hildegard recognized Bloodreaper, his expression changed drastically.
The three secrets that were his identity, lineage, and Bloodreaper would bring serious danger once revealed. Unexpectedly, the secret of Bloodreaper was exposed here in the Compassion Pavilion.
Seeing Jagoan’s reaction, Hildegard reassured him. “No need to be nervous. If I were covetous of this item, I wouldn’t need to tell you these things…”
After Hildegard finished speaking, Jagoan breathed a sigh of relief.
Thinking about it, he realized that it was true. If she coveted Bloodreaper, she could just make a move. With her strength, it would be as easy as pie for her to kill him.
“How did you discover it, Madam Peregrine?”
After all, before entering this place, Jagoan had suppressed the sword energy of Bloodreaper. As a matter of course, to outsiders, it was just an ordinary long sword.
Since Hildegard was able to detect it, it meant that there must be a risk of exposure that he didn’t know about Bloodreaper.
“Although you can suppress its sword energy, you cannot suppress the spirituality of a divine weapon. I noticed this abnormality the moment you entered here. Besides, as your cultivation and compatibility with the divine weapon increase, the sword spirit will awaken more and more.”
After the other party finished speaking, Jagoan nodded in agreement.
No wonder Bloodreaper had such a strong reaction when Thunder Sword was unsheathed. After understanding this, Jagoan couldn’t help but wipe the sweat from his forehead.
Fortunately, Hildegard had discovered this beforehand, otherwise, he wouldn’t even know what bad things would happen to him in the future.
