"This is truly how it all ends. I hope you enjoy the show." And that was the last word ever spoken by the once-great Arcanum. The final word to exist. "So Ansootlum was the monster spoken of?" And so the sad atmosphere was completely disrupted once again, and every single time it just had to be Eir. "Do you even know the meaning of the word 'silence', my dear boy?" Yet another item completely expected was unraveling. "Yes Mr. Choiy, and it's not like I've heard this lecture a million times." This was always how Eir spoke, a scathing sarcastic remark always at the ready because he always had to be right. "Absolutely no one needs your sarcasm, especially at a time like this. The old man's patience was running out, but if Eir took any notice he ignored it. "And I know what you're going to say next. There's times for silence and listening and there's times for talking and being heard. But it's always a time for silence! Why can't I ever be the one to speak?" Choiy took his time picking out the response that would satisfy Eir most and teach him a lesson. "While it is true that you must always be silent, it's only because of you." He made sure he put noticeable emphasis on because so it would sink in. "If you wouldn't constantly talk and take the time to actually see your surroundings, you would also be heard. As I find myself constantly needing to remind you, this is one of the most basic and quintessential items for becoming a sorcerer, something you haven't seemed to master even after 3 years of practice. Sorcerers like Hiekyl, Luthu, even Arcanum before he went so horribly wrong became so great because they didn't just look at their surroundings. They saw things for what they truly were. Just like on the very advent of your training, looking and seeing are completely different." Here Choiy paused because of the expression on Eir's face. Choiy's face softened and he continued. "Once you master this principle, you will become very much like the greats in terms of ability. Whole fields of learning will be open to you. But all great buildings start with a well-built foundation."
