But Brendel gently held this crystal and felt its weight in his heart. Malourcha had guarded this holy magic for thousands of years but ended up giving it to a stranger like him.
“Yeah… this a raw energy stone. I’ve only read about them in story books from the old times. Legend has it that before the War of the Holy saints, the mages could craft these things.” Brendel answered.
“You said you’ve seen it in a story book. Are you talking about Sophie or Brendel.” Maynild asked from behind him. He could tell that the difference mattered to her.

The female knight caught the crystal and held it with both hands. She asked with some surprise, “Why give it to me?”
Brendel smiled. Truth was, he didn’t know either. Probably because this thing no longer had any effect on him. As an item that could increase experience, raw energy stones were pretty low in rank. It had the most effect on someone who was transitioning between platinum and golden level and could transfer experience almost without fail.
