Chapter 1254 - Early Gift
"Welcome back, Micheal." Elena said as she hugged me, "When did you return?" I asked, from what we talked about a week ago, she wasn't supposed to return to Academy for a few more days.
At my question, a way too familiar smile appeared on her face, "Mom asked me to come early, and you know how she got when she did not get her way." She said, to that I couldn't help but give her an affirmative smile.
Teacher tends to get forceful sometimes, not only with me but with her daughter too; she and her sister are the same, so you should just put a smile on your face and do whatever she told you to; if not, she will get even more forceful.
"Let's go; mother had asked you in her cabin." She said; I stored the airs.h.i.+p back into my storage and flew with Elena towards the teacher office.
A few minutes later, we landed in front of the teacher's office and walked inside. The Academy is the same; nothing had changed much since I had left four months ago.
Soon we reached the teacher's office, and Elene opened the door without knocking. There I saw the familiar scene of the teacher sitting behind her desk while Professor in front of her with legs sprawled across the table.
I am very well aware that the teacher did not like it when Professor put her feet on the table, but for some reason, she did not say anything about it, or maybe she said it, just not in front of me.
"Micheal, you have made good progress." Teacher said as she inspects me with her sense, "Reaching Mid Duke this early with your Inheritance is very good." She said I could tell she is really happy about it.
Compare to others; my speed is slow; many of my friends have reached Peak Duke Stage and Prince Stage, but Inheritance I have is different; I am creating my Inheritance and not following others so that the progress would be slow, and I had already accepted that fact when I selected the Inheritance.
Otherwise, why would I not even think about World Champions.h.i.+p (Battle Kings) when everyone is so crazy about it.
"How are the effects of solutions we have sent you?" the teacher asked as I took the seat beside Professor, "They are good; just yesterday, I had gone through another strengthening, and I had been using the refining solutions regularly, their effects are great too," I replied.
The teacher had sent me a couple of solutions two weeks ago, both strengthening and refining, and their effects are quite good.
"Good, keep using them; the old guys will want to see the result of them before you leave." She said, and I nodded. I already prepared for them, even if they checked the result right now, I am sure they would be quite surprised.
Teacher asked me some more questions about my progress, and I had answered them one by one; she also gives me some tips, which she usually does when she finished with all questions.
Seeing her questions have ended, I took out Tome from my storage and slid toward her, seeing her questioning look appeared on all three of their faces and the teacher even arched her brow in question looking at Tome in front of her.
"What is it?" she asked as she looked at the Tome, "An early present for your birthday; I am loaning you this for a month," I said with a smile.
Normally, I would have kept this Tome to myself, but I am stuck, and due to my crazy practicing to find the solution to the test, that guy finally had some mercy on me and gave me a small tip.
He said I should practice more outside where I could connect with the world better. I have all the skills I need to create a modified recipe; I need to get inspiration on how and that I will not get that inspiration while practicing like crazy inside the Tome.
"What does it do." The teacher asked when she opened the Tome and found the pages blank, "You have to stare at the blank page and teacher, you don't have to worry about time; one minute outside is one hour inside." I said.
That seemed to confuse her further, and she again looked at me in question, but all she got was a smile for me. Seeing she will not get an answer from me, she huffed a breath before staring at Tome.
First few seconds, nothing had happened when suddenly a glazed look appeared in the teacher's eyes, seeing that smile couldn't help but appear on my face, she had entered the Tome.
"Mom?" Elena said, seeing the glazed look in her mother's eyes; she got no answer. She tried again, but no response. She turned to Professor, who also called the teacher's name but received no answer; I could see some worry appearing on Elena's face seeing that.
"There is a world inside the book, right?" Professor asked; there was no worry on her face, just curiosity, "Yes." I replied, affirming her question.
"What does this world have?" She asked, now curiosity is blazing in her eyes, and when she looked at me, I had the feeling of her opening my brain to get information out of me.
"You will have to ask that to the teacher when she comes out," I replied with a smile after calming my heartbeat.
"How long does one can stay in the world inside tome?" she asked again, "It depends; when I first time entered the Tome, I was only able to stay inside sixteen minutes before coming out very tiredly but seeing how powerful teacher is, staying few hours inside it would not be a problem for her," I said.
The answer little startled her before she nodded and looked at her sister in silence. There is nothing we can do other than waiting; teacher might come back in ten minutes or ten hours; it depends on her when she wants to come out.
