Chapter 1239 - Return
Three days had pa.s.sed, and this is an evening of the fourth; just a few hours ago, we finished sacking up the whole store, and now we are sitting in a simple tent, eating dinner.
We did not want to use s.p.a.ce Abode or any other abode that might interfere with the homing device that will call us back home. I have been in this Ruin for a month and got many good things, but it is now time to go home.
"I will miss the food you cooked very dearly, Micheal," Mary said as she puts her fork down and laid back on her chair, "The other food is trash compared to what you cook; it will suck." She said in a complaining voice.
"You will be fine in a few days," I said; the regular food will taste bad for few days before she gets used to it.
"What are you going to do after you return, stay in Fort Ardon or return to the Academy?" She asked suddenly, I have not really throught about it but now she asked, it made me think.
"I will stay in Fort Ardon for a month before returning," I replied after a minute of silence before turning to her, "You?" I asked back, "I will return to the organization; I had been in Morristown for nearly four months." She replied before we fell into silence again.
I would have returned to Academy too if not to fight to collect some data in my upgraded move. Ive barely healed and Harvested the monster and used some other moves; I want to see their performance and collect data on them before I return.
Ruin's harvest is great; everything I got from it will keep me busy for at least a few months before I would need to come for another of such adventures.
We were sitting in comfortable silence when my homing device suddenly buzzed and waved at Mary before I found myself disappearing from her view and before finding myself in the s.p.a.ce tunnel.
My heart couldn't help but beat faster when I found myself in a s.p.a.ce tunnel; those memories have left a quite big scar that I don't think will fade.
I calm myself from my unstable emotions and look at the s.p.a.ce tunnel; I will only have to stay here for a couple of seconds before I returned to Fort Ardon, where I will be safe from any accidents.
Time pa.s.sed excruciatingly slow; each second felt like an hour before I found everything going dark in front of me. Next second, everything in front of me had brightened up, and I had found myself beneath with more and more people appearing around me.
Buzz Buzz Buzz…
I quickly moved away from the platform and silenced all the notifications that are coming to holowatch. I did not open any of them and directly went toward my quarters; now that I had returned, there is one thing I had to do.
A few minutes later, I opened my apartment door and closed it from behind before I opened my holowatch and sent the teacher a mail; it is the most encrypted mail I have and only to be sent in a very specific condition.
With that done, I heaved a sigh of relief and sat on the couch waiting; there will be a person coming in a few minutes.
There I was a knock on the door, and when I opened it, I found professor Josephine on the other side. I did not think it would be her; I thought it would be a teacher or one of the old guys from the Academy would come, seeing how she is always moving around.
And there is one surprising thing; she is wearing a dress and not her usual suit, a long black dress with a deep neck and slit around one leg, she looked ravis.h.i.+ng that I got lost for a second before I forcefully pulled myself back and welcomed her in.
She must be either at some party or on a date when the teacher had sent her to me.
Ting Ting Ting…
She came inside silently before throwing four silvery b.a.l.l.s around the room, which created near-invisible fields in the room.
"So, what extremely important you find to use that mail?" Professor asked as she sat across me; I did not answer the question; instead, I just took out a box that had heavy runes carved all over it, another teacher's gift, and placed it in front of her.
She arched a brow at me in question seeing the box, wanting me to tell her what it is, but I did not; I remained silent. After a few seconds of staring contest, the professor looked at me angrily before taking the box in her hands and before opening it gently on her lap.
As she opened the box, small delicate purple wings revealed themselves; as they did, a loud gasp couldn't help but come out of the professor's mouth, and her face is filled with shock.
She is so shocked that her body is shaking up and down and needed a few minutes to come to herself. There are very few things that could shock a Tyrant Stage powerhouse like her, and these wings are one of those.
"There is no seal on it." She muttered as she gently touched the wings before she turned to me, "How do you get it?" She asked, her voice is a little breathless when she asked this question.
I thought for a while before telling her; I did not hide much since she already knew everything about me. She, professor, and that cursing old man, which I think is someone important and not just a guard of Inheritance, knew about my Inheritance's truth.
"I have to say you are very lucky, Micheal, not only because you got the Inheritance, but you got an unsealed Inheritance," she said.
