Chapter 1118 - Books
"It is beautiful," I said as I looked at the brown wooden house that is floating on the lake. The lake is medium size, and there are four of such houses, the Lord powerhouses house all of them.
The lake is artificial, but it had been more than a thousand years that it became natural.
The lake is deep, and the water on it is crystal clear without any impurity, and on the clear water, pearly white lotuses are floating.
These lotuses are the same as the peace breath Vines; they release a calming scent, and their effects are even better than vines. I looked at the whole lake, and one found a young man not much older than me sleeping on the boat as it drifts in the lake.
There is also a girl who looked to be the same age as me is fis.h.i.+ng from her porch; she seemed very focused on fis.h.i.+ng, not even moving a little as she held the fis.h.i.+ng rod she had constructed with her mana.
Earlier, I had read that there are very rare Emerald Fin fishes in the lake, which are incredibly delicious and helpful to practice but notoriously hard to catch even with the power of the Lord, one has to try very hard to see them.
I gently floated toward the lakehouse, not wanting to disturb any of my neighbors; I had not learned to fly on my own yet and use the artifact.
After I applied for the lakehouse, it got accepted within an hour; I left the beautiful apartment in Gla.s.s Tower for the beautiful lake house right after receiving the confirmation.
I gently land on the porch, not wanting to disturb my neighbor whose house is floating just a little more than a hundred meters away; she is still wholly concentrated on the fis.h.i.+ng.
As I landed on the porch, I took on the beautiful view of the lake before going inside. The interior is very comfy and lit with gla.s.s panels in the wooden walls, it all looks very beautiful.
This house has standard two Bedrooms, Hall, Kitchen, and Practice room. There is an arena underground. To reach, I have to take the elevator, which I will check later.
The first thing I have to do now is a shower; there is a thick layer of dead skin surrounding me. It results from a breakthrough into the Lord; it is giving me an itching feeling all over my body.
I tapped a few b.u.t.tons on my holowatch before entering the bathroom, which is big and equipped with all state of the art facilities. I've spent half an hour there before I came out feeling completely refreshed.
I wore comfortable clothes and walked to the porch where the big box was already present; I lifted it and carried it to the kitchen. There I opened it and took out the ingredients before I started cooking.
These ingredients are quite expensive, and if not for the special privileges I have due to being Headmistress Student, I would never have been able to afford it seeing my current financial condition.
The Academy hadn't paid me for the Golden t.u.r.ds yet, and Elina said it might take a while to evaluate the value of those things. They are far more valuable than I had thought, and only when Elina explained to me in detail, I finally understood their real value.
Those t.u.r.ds are not only useful for the Totem Artifact of Knights and Lords, but they are also very useful for the Totem Artifact of the Tyrants; they could increase the power of the Tyrants Totem Artifact, which is a big thing.
Elina said that higher-ups would perform tests on the t.u.r.ds to define their exact value and properties. She sounded very excited about it and got even more when I had given her one of the t.u.r.ds I had in my storage.
She had declined to accept it first, but with my insistence, she finally took it. Those I had given to Professor have become Academies property, and she will have to go through a lot of official processes to get one despite being the Headmistress daughter.
In the few days I've been here, I have learned many things, and one of them is that the Academy is very strict with its rules; even the Headmistress had to answer the council of her actions.
Though the council rarely interfered, the Headmistress still had to report all the important decisions she had made to the council. With me giving Elina the Mold directly, the teacher won't have to go through all the troubles.
An hour later, I finished cooking, and I have to say, the food was very delicious that Ashlyn and I ate till our stomachs felt bloated. I had thought something would be left for the evening, but nothing had left; everything was wiped clean by us.
"It is time," I said as I laid on the couch by a huge gla.s.s window, and the next moment a book appeared in front of me. The book is silver in color, and there is a Silver Fire emblem on it and it gives the same feeling as my fire ability.
If one looked at the book from a distance, they would see it as a real book, but if they look closely, they will see it as a thing made of energy, but unfortunately, others could not see it. T
The book will not materialize in front of others before I understand complete knowledge inside it.
I could read the book by summoning it or just closing my eyes, opening it in mind, could read it in my inheritance s.p.a.ce, the knowledge of it available for me anytime, anywhere.
I observed the book for a while before I flipped the cover and started to read it, and just reading a single page, I was completely blown away.
The information presented on a single page took me years to understand on my own, but it was written on the first page of the book, seeing how I can not be completely shocked.
