Paint me in white and the world black.
[attr="class","theoscroll"]It was hot, extremely hot. The temperature in the Volcano Grand Magic Zone is incomparable. Stay here for too long, one might die from dehydration. Take a wrong step, one may receive numerous degrees burns. Today, Theodore stepped into the vicinity of these dangerous grounds to further sharpen his ability as a mage. His friends such as Vulf Terrell has improved massively since they have met and it seems like Theodore has been slacking, and is falling behind. While it is true that everyone goes in their own pace, it was inevitable that he would be left behind due to his lack of training in recent times.
Sweating and panting, he would walk towards the far left side of the Volcano Grand Magic Zone where a premier hot springs was located. 'Hmm, maybe I can freshen myself up first and get my body ready for the harsh environment that I am in today before continuing my training...' He would think as he nodded to himself. The man was wearing a white cloak with white pants and shoes. Not fit for the occasion, of course, but Theodore wanted to look clean rather than haggard and messy. Wiping the sweat off his forehead, he would harden his mana skin to be protected by projectiles that may be caused by the environment as he would continue to make his way into the hot springs. Entering the establishment that is the hot springs, he would be met by a room made of bamboos and an old man sitting on a huge rock. The aged man was built well, and looked as if he was used to the harsh environments of the Volcano Grand Magic Zone. He would nod at Theodore and greet him. "Welcome to my hot springs. Do enjoy your time here. I appreciate you coming." Theodore would nod back and smile. It was not like his visit here today was planned but it seemed that the man was glad that he was there, in which Theodore felt the same.
The white haired mage would make his way into the hot springs that had a serene atmosphere in the midst of such a rough environment. He would place his things on the edge of the entrance within his vision as he would take his cloak, polo, shoes, and pants off making what remains of him a pair of boxers he was wearing. The boy took off the garments that were left wrapped around his skin as he would cover his waist with a white towel. Slowly, he would walk as he felt the heat from the ground on his feet little by little, step by step. As he arrived at the edge of the hot springs, he would dip his feet to check the temperature of the water. About 40 to 50 degrees Celsius. It is abnormally hot, but of course. Taking a deep breath, he would dip the lower half of his body in the water as his skin started to turn red from the temperature. Theodore leaned back on the rock using his elbows as leverage as he smiled in relief. Good vibes all throughout the day was being felt. The hot springs were empty and quiet, just the right amount of serene for his liking. Theodore would then take another towel, dip it in the hot water, and fold it in a nice rectangular shape before placing it on his forehead. This time, the only part of his body visible to the outside is his collar bones upwards. He would tilt his head backwards and close his eyes, unconsciously starting to fall asleep as the minutes passed by.
