Chapter 1298 - Date I
Time pa.s.sed by as I took more and more energy for each circulation, and no matter what I would take, it would disappear within moments.
When I first entered the pool and saw the amount of energy present, I had not throught I would be able to absorb it. I planned to store it for tomorrow, but now, seeing how hungrily my body is seeking this energy, I don't think I have to worry about that.
I hoped this diluted essence of the Miasmic Astral Rose would not be this difficult. If it would just act like other energies, I would have finished with it now, but now there is still so much for me to absorb.
Time pa.s.sed by, and finally, where there is only 10% of diluted essence remained in the tub, my body reached its limit, unable to merge with any more energy for today, but there are still my runes and Nero, so I kept sucking it.
Some more time pa.s.sed when finally all energy in the tub had sucked apart, not the single speck of it have remained. After I got out of the tub, the first thing I did was to vaporize the water with Sunfire, not leaving even dregs.
All this wasted water goes to drain directly, but who those there might be some crazy alchemist with a test tube in his hand, testing dregs of solution coming out every King's Quarter.
I don't want any trace of Miasmic Astral Lotus to remain, or I would be in serious trouble. The Miasmic Astral Rose is an extremely desired object, and if someone knows I had it, my life would be in danger.
After burning all the proof, I looked at myself and was shocked to see the change that happened.
This single drop of diluted Miasmic Astral Rose essence gave me benefits I would get after refining my bodied for a week three times a day, and the thing is, I only half of the diluted drop as the other half was taken by Nero and my runes.
This immense progress made me forget the loss I had of the Supreme Combat Exercise seals, which I was not able to create as the energy got absorbed before I complete twenty-four circulation.
After completely inspecting the change, I walked out of the room and stepped into showed before laying on the bed; the sky had brightened up completely under the morning light.
When I woke up, it was an afternoon. After walking up, I did not immediately get up but remained on the bed with a smile on my face as I thought about the date I have with Mira.
When I 'Unintentionally' asked her for a date yesterday, I was quite skeptical and dumbfounded, and now I am feeling quite happy about it; it had a while since I felt such happiness at the bottom of my heart.
It took me a while to come out of my daydreams and go to the bathroom to freshen up before walking to the kitchen to cook something to feed my rumbling stomach.
I made something light and quick, and at with Ashlyn before entering the small room again and forge my body and this time, I used solutions from my storage, not of the Miasmic Solution which could only be used once a day or one will have to suffer the side effect of the overuse.
But there is no such fear the using the essence of Miasmic Astral Rose; I can use it any time I want with the six-hour gap between each use. By the time I was finished with refining, two hours pa.s.sed by.
After refining, I took a quick shower before I went to the hospital. There were little more than usual patients for me with whole day absence and took me about two hour to heal them all.
I spent another hour in the hospital before I came back to my quarters, and that time, the sky had started darkening.
Mira will be coming in two hours, and before she comes, I have to cook something amazing that will impress the s.h.i.+t out of her and I already more than twenty recipes which could do that now question choosing which.
I can't cook all the recipes I know, I have to choose, and I spent half an hour doing that before making my decisions. With the decision made, I did not waste any time and started cooking.
I am cooking a standard five-course meal, and two of the recipes I have chosen were the ones through which I had pa.s.sed the two tests while the other three were part of the twenty-some recipes.
I got so busy with cooking that I completely lost track of times, and if not for the doorbell ringing, I would have known Mira had come.
When I looked at my holowatch, I saw Mira had arrived half an hour early and seeing, I consecutively cooking three dishes and could not leave the counter, I had to open the door remotely which is regrettable had wanted to greet her myself.
The door clicked open, and she walked in, "I like little mystery, but I hope you did not overdo it." Mira said as she walked in, and I opened my mouth to say something when I forgot what to say when I saw her.
She is wearing a black leather short skirt and white blows with black stilettos, which perfectly matched her neck length wavy hair.
She looked like a G.o.ddess; her short skirt seemed to show off her perfectly tones long legs, which seemed to stretch forever, and her semi-transparent sleeveless blouse, which clearly shows the black bra underneath.
The black stilettos she is wearing add a different charm to her whole to make her look memorable, but an important factor that made her striking was her forest green eyes, which seemed to have mischief hidden in them.
"Well, your reaction worth the two hours I spent getting ready," she said; her voice made me came back to myself, and embarra.s.sment appeared on my face seeing how openly I am staring at her.
