Part 10: Arkana's Superior Power -

     With a quick swipe of the hand, Arkana forced the air around him to blast Sam across the training hall, "Good you stood back up. Now, your turn to use the power of wind." Sam closed his eyes and whispered to himself, "I have the mana within me, I just need to focus on the image and direction of where I want to move the air around me towards." Arkana replies, "Yes, but make sure you control the amount of mana being released. Mana interacts with the natural laws of physics. Mana is something that is inside every living cell, no matter the organism. Some beings have greater mana storage, but others lack enough to manifest it, they practically have near zero mana. Your home planet lacks enough mana; although, I granted you enough mana to defeat even my brothers. Hahahahahaha!" He smiles, "You just need to learn how to control it. Over time you will be able to use more and more power. Right now all you can muster is a little breeze in my direction. Hahahahahaha!" Sam swings his arm through the air, a gust of wind going thirty miles an hour blows at the six feet tall god. Arkana smiles, "A little better, but still just a harmless breeze. Come on! You want to protect your family, right! Well, if you get defeated or give up, I will kill your family in front of you, I won't let you die before them! The entire universe and the future of all creation is at stake! If a simple mortal can't even release enough mana to manipulate the air! Then I might as well find someone who has the talent to do so!" Sam gets pissed, "Fuck you! I made the deal! I am talented! Nobody will fucking touch my family! NOT EVEN THE MOTHER FUCking GODS THEMSELVES!!!" He thrusts his right arm forward with his palm facing in Arkana's direction. A massive gust of wind travelling at five sextillion miles a second blows towards Arkana, pushing him back, throwing him into the air. Arkana cancels out the gust of wind while landing on his hands and knees. Sam angrily moves towards Arkana, unable to control the rage building up, he grabs Arkana, only to be holding his robe with no one inside. The robe dissipates into nothingness, as Arkana stands behind him, places his hand on Sam's shoulder and says, "I am terribly sorry for my words. I just knew what will make you angry enough to motivate you. You used way too much mana and have depleted an eighth of your mana. Luckily you didn't use enough to scratch me. I did enjoy being launched into the air and forced to cancel out your mana. Good, remember the feeling and try to manifest just enough to slightly push me, a god, back a few feet. That would be enough to kill Brett and Wallace as they are now." Sam focused his mind, controlling his breathing, and with a loud grunt along with the forward palm thrust, he launches enough mana to force the wind into razor sharp ethereal blades, flying through the air towards Arkana, hitting him repeatedly all over his abdomen, slicing his robe into shreds, creating small cuts or none at all. Arkana laughs, "Hahahahah, finally you get it! It has been a little over a week by your standards, and you mastered it in over one week! Impressive. You truly love your family! Now, you know the basics of mana control. I will work with you on controlling the rest of your mana, but you might explode if you can't control it in greater numbers. The more mana you use, the more stress is placed on the individual cells, only within mortal lifeforms. Advance mana control will be for another time. Now that you mastered controlling the wind, well it seems Tilanna's stupid warrior is about to get herself killed by attacking Brett. I need you to stop her, and challenge Brett to a match. You need to gauge your current abilities to his. Tilanna chose a peasant to be her warrior. The peasant is a weakling who only has the ability of manipulating gravity. Brett will steal her powers. I need you to stop her and challenge Brett before he gets to kill her." 

         Sam returns to the woods, as if time stood still and as if the week of training never happened. Sam rides his horse back home, he is greeted by his wife, she kisses him, "That was a very short meeting with Arkana? It has only been a very short time since you walked out the door. How was your meeting with the god of wisdom?" Sam replies, "Hmm, he said we were training for a week, but you say I was gone for a very short time? I know I was in his realm for what must have been around a week or so, it has to be his powers to pause the mortal realm, or time flows differently for the gods than us mortals." As they sat down at the table they held a smile at each other. The family of five eat their dinner together. He watches his wife feed their infant, smiles, then leaves the dining room for his personal armory. Sam concentrates on manifesting his mana over a lit torch resting on a table. He thinks to himself, "Can I absorb elements of nature into my own body, if Brett would be capable of doing so, maybe I can too!" He takes a deep breath as the mana builds up in the palm of both of his hands. He has both of his palms face the fire. "Instead of forcing the mana to push, what if I used it to pull?" The mana swirls around the fire, capturing it in the shape of a sphere. The fire is pulled into Sam's abdomen, he feels the heat of the flames inside of his abdomen as someone touches his shoulder as if they were directly behind him. Arkana says, "Yep, you are so intelligent! Now, you understand how mana works. So, my champion, go fix my siblings' mess! I can't, or I will be erased from all existence; though you have no idea of how badly I personally want to slap them for their stupid games." Sam turned around, only to see that Arkana had already left the mortal realm.
