Looking at the old mans persistence in the past three days, perhaps the worst-case scenario would come true.
For now, all I can do is wait for Ghost Face to come to me. Of course, I also had to put up a safety net.
Without thinking about the matter any further, I quickly exited my room. I hastily followed a maid to the front yard.
Its already the third day since I returned to the present.
Living comfortably in this mansion almost killed my fighting instincts.
”I have to leave this place immediately. ”
As I walked down the halls of the mansion, I saw Daniel standing in my way. He leaned against the wall, like a street thug.
”Hey, stop, damn it! ”
Of course, I ignored him and kept going. Who wants to stop when told to.
He looks really angry when I ignore him. Even though I was annoyed. So, when he grabbed my shoulder, I immediately frowned.
I grabbed the hand and slammed it hard on the floor. He looked surprised as he flew off my back. Then he just fell to the floor.
Without another word, he staggered to his feet before starting to attack me.
A punch or two flew toward my face. But the blow only hit thin air.
I dodged left and right, in sync with every hit he took. My footsteps also move in sync with my upper body.
”Bastard! Bastard! Can you keep dodging? Come on, fight me, damn it! ”
Ugh, those are too cliche words, huh.
He seemed to be getting annoyed. He continued to spur his punches. As time went on, the blows grew faster, until finally, it was only a hair away from my face.
So, I can just dodge it. I kicked the floor hard and slid towards Daniel.
Instantly I was right in front of him. It would be more correct to say that we are face to face.
Was he really that surprised? He immediately took a few steps back. His face clearly said, Hes fast! Or something like that.
Of course, I won let him widen our distance again. I grabbed his neck with my right hand.
Yes, I choked him.
It seemed like he wanted to say something, but he couldn .
I then dragged him to the window, before finally I pushed—banging his head against the window.
The sound of glass breaking echoed through the halls of the mansion. The shards of glass fell to the floor. The now-open window carried a breeze into the hall of the mansion.
Im still holding on to Daniels neck firmly. I saw his face was red, probably because she was out of breath.
Just as I was about to let go, he suddenly kicked me using a lot of mana. Is that the technique?
His kick flew beside my face. Without much difficulty, I managed to catch his kick with my left hand.
I saw the surprised look on Daniels face was quite funny. But I didn laugh, but frowned, because my left hand was numb.
Without delay, I immediately pushed Daniel further. When I let go of my grip on his neck, he grabs me.
But he didn make it.
”Fly away. ”
Those were the words I spoke to him.
He then fell from the second floor. Even so, he will not die. At most, it would only take a few weeks to recover.
As I thought, I softened a bit. If it was in my previous life, I would have killed him straight away.
I convinced myself that, if I ever saw Daniel again, and he was still hostile to me, I would kill him straight away.
The reason why I managed to defeat him early was because I was only focused on strengthening my wrists and legs with mana.
The act itself is very difficult to perform. It took a lot of time for me to be able to do that in my previous life.

What? Is this System insulting me? Wasn mana manipulation techniques to strengthen the body the most common thing for internal mana user specialists?
[…Your manipulation technique has been given a name – Skill Strengthening.]
