Divine Emperor of Death

Chapter 18

Chapter 18

"Davis, since you have a powerful soul, it's also a must for you to become an Alchemist or else it will be just a waste of talent . " Claire urged her son .

"Eh?" Davis had a stupid and crying expression on his face .

'Oh, that process where people make pills from a cauldron? It looks really easy to read in a novel but is it really easy to do here?'

"What? Do you even know what alchemy is? Do you know how easy it is to cultivate with pills in your arsenal? Do you how much respect the alchemists command in our continent?"

"Alright, alright, Mom doesn't have to explain all this . Just let father teach me alright . " Davis replied as he already knew what kind of bullshit respect those alchemists have, those misers .

Claire immediately glared at Logan while he just looked around and started whistling as if he hadn't heard anything .

Claire then said to Davis with a not so smiling face . "Davis, your father was the fifth in line for the throne, and wasn't interested in anything other than woman and cultivation . He was pretty arrogant, so he didn't train in Alchemy at all and as a result, you see a failure of a father who can't teach you Alchemy . "

"Claire!!" Logan's face was red in embarrassment . This was a dark history that he didn't want anyone to know about . If his people knew that he, as an Emperor, didn't know shit about Alchemy, they would laugh till they die .

Davis gulped, he realised that his Mom's sharp words can kill people sometimes . 'Screw the Death Note, I should have the Mom Note!'

"He stopped flirting with other woman when he started loving me . At least, your dad is very upright in this regard . "

Logan regained his bearings as he gained some face with that statement .

"No worries, even though many Alchemists command respect, they can't compare to an Emperor of a Sky Grade Empire and your talent is very high which even makes me jealous . Alchemists would probably flock to have you as a Direct Disciple if they know how powerful your soul is!" Logan explained with a proud face .

"But the problem is, it is not a good thing to reveal your talent in front of the public . We have just recently survived a disaster and our overall power has dropped, even though we are a powerhouse, we must be careful enough to not fall into the plot of others, such as assassinations . "

Claire pondered and said . "Then we should just invite a high tiered trustable alchemist to teach Davis in the Royal Castle, we can secretly invite him using various proxies so that even if the invite failed, he will not be able to trace back to us . "

"That's doable . " Logan nodded .

"Does that mean that I am not allowed to roam the Royal Capital?" Davis didn't want to bring out the Death Note here, as his parents may know about it . As for why he didn't bring it out in the Redemption Tower, he thought that place was monitored as well .

"Obviously, you're not getting one step outside the Royal Castle without your Mom and Dad accompanying you . It is too dangerous . " Claire scoffed .

"Even though the Royal Capital is our home field?" Davis expressed his doubts .

"On the surface, the Royal Capital may look calm, but there are maybe many serious undercurrents lurking without us knowing . " Logan explained .

"Ever since the rebellion, we have severely weakened which made the other empires send their spies, assassins and what not . There's no telling that a random person with a powerful hidden cultivation, might approach you from somewhere, only to kill you and die himself . "

Davis audibly gulped . 'I've underestimated this world too much . ' Even though he already knew that he was constantly under protection, he just thought it was a royalty thing .

"And I will still know where you are as I have placed a soul mark on you . "

"Where?" Davis panicked and immediately checked his soul for any foreign entities .

A bright golden talisman shot out from Logan's soul to Davis's soul .

"Here . " Logan said smugly . Claire laughed .

Davis knew that he was played the fool right now . He glared at his dad and swore secretly that he will take revenge for this .

"Davis, let Mom also mark you, so that I can immediately react to any emergencies . " Claire sweetly said .

"Go ahead, Mom . "

"Hehe, silly . " Claire was very happy that Davis didn't put any restrictions in front of her . She also gave him a Sky Grade Protective Treasure, it was a locket .

"Dad, I now want to train in Body Tempering Cultivation . " Davis declared seriously .

"No, first, you should stabilize your Soul Cultivation first . "

"My Soul Cultivation is already stable . " Davis quickly answered .

"Then you have to wait for your body to get used to pain . "

"Father, I am used to pain . " Davis smiled .

Logan's eyes twitched . 'At this rate, won't he punch a hole through the heavens and ascend quickly?' He sighed .

"Alright, let me get you a tutor for Body Cultivation first, Claire will arrange you the resources that you need to achieve a breakthrough . "

"Won't you teach me dad?" Davis asked sincerely .

"I'm sorry, Davis, I don't have time for everything . " Logan had a difficult expression on his face .

"I understand" Davis knew that his father, as the Emperor, must have a shitload of work to do .

"Dad, what about the Esse…"

"I know, once you complete your Body Cultivation, Claire will see to your Essence Gathering Cultivation . " Logan clearly had enough of his bullshit .

"Or should I just assign you anoth…"

"No thanks . " Davis was more than happy to be with his mother together .

"Haha, alright, it's getting busy for me, you and Claire should rest for today . Don't make Claire teach you too much a day, let her rest for a more period of time . "

"I know dad, at that time, I will be either with Clara or in the Library, no need to worry . I will take care of mother!"

Logan and Claire both smiled satisfied by his reply .

Logan then left, princess carrying Claire to her room .

Davis smiled . He also left the room and headed to the Study .

'Phew, looks like I can't even sneak out of the castle . Then I will just have to get even stronger! For father and mother to acknowledge me!' Davis had fire emitting out from his eyes . He wanted to explore this world, atleast the neighbouring streets for now .
