Chapter 1313 - s.p.a.ce Realm
"Lunch is ready," I said; after about two and a half hours, I had finally called back the vines. Cooking for this many people reward but it is also very tiring, it is not easy to manage a huge amount of energies in dishes.
It always felt good while cooking, and today, I had especially needed that. I had been excessively worrying about Mira, and it had started to affect my mental stage, but this session of cooking have removed all the extra stress I was feeling.
"These dishes smelled more amazing than the ones you have cooked previously." Mr. West praised, to that, I smiled. The dishes, Ive cooked before were below fifty, and the ones I had cooked now were above fifty.
I talked to Mr. West for a minute before I walked out of the kitchen and took the plate for my food. I could have gotten the food directly from the kitchen, but I did not want to break more cafeteria rules than I am breaking right now.
I, Lena, and a few of our friends filled our plates and the usual table. As we did that, the people that were in the cafeteria instantly lined up on the long lines, wanting to get food as soon as possible.
"Umm, it is more amazing than the dishes you have cooked in the past," Lena praised; others had praised too as she took the bite.
"Do you guys know the real reason for them closing the gate and sending only Kings out of investigations?" Daina said suddenly with a mysterious smile on her face, hearing her ears of everyone perked up, and we all looked at her expectation.
Diana is very chatty, but she good chatty. She is so good at a conversation that people end up spilling out their secrets to her unknowingly; even I had unintentionally ended up spilling some of my lighter secrets.
"Come out with it?" Lena snapped, seeing Diana unintentionally delaying of effect. "Ok, buzzkill." She snapped back Lena before that mysterious smile returned on her face.
"You guys must know that the density of the Miasma suddenly increases, right?" she asked, and everyone nodded, "But you guys know the reason for it?" she asked back, to which all of us shook our heads as we had no idea.
"My first patient in the morning was good at talking; she told me that when he was patrolling the area, she was a.s.signed. She noticed a density of mana and decided to check its source."
"On the way to the source, she found herself in a completely different place for a few minutes before appearing back, a few kilometers distance from the original place." She finished.
Hearing that, everyone got so surprised that we have been unable to talk for a few minutes.
"These are a clear indication of the s.p.a.ce Realm, but if this s.p.a.ce realm, then how is it leaking same pink miasma as outside?" I asked back Diana.
"These questions have come to my mind too, and I first throught she was lying; if not the reaction Adventure Paradice that was followed an hour later, I would not believe her either."
Realms are different from Ruins; Realms are pockets of s.p.a.ce that are created in the s.p.a.ce of the world, while Ruins are pieces of an alien world.
The ruins are quite common in the surrounding continent as s.p.a.ce is weak, and it is easier to form a bubble; on the other hand, they are extremely rare in the central continent due to its strong s.p.a.ce.
Whenever a ruin is found, it quickly occupied. It may not have a huge amount of treasure as the Realms, but they are very good places to create secrete bases and training grounds.
Supreme and other organizations kept huge numbers of armies there, which they trained secretly for emergencies.
Coming to the present, if this had been a regular rune. Then it would not have been spewing the huge amount of Miasma, as it would have been a close s.p.a.ce bubble with no connection to outside.
Its entrance or entrances would only show up when friction in s.p.a.ce appears. So, the question is, how in the h.e.l.l did the thick Miasma spew out of the realm.
"In my limited knowledge, there is only one answer to our question, that the source of Miasma always in ruin and earlier had only one entrance, and that is the center of the forest where we used to consider the source of Miasma was present," I said.
"This seemed to be the only valid answer we could think of," Diana repeated, and everyone nodded.
"We don't have to worry about it too much; they have sent Kings for the inspections, and I am sure Emperors and Tyrants must also be keeping eyes on it, seeing it might involve the source of Miasmic Forest," Lena said after seeing worrying expressions on everyone's faces.
Her a.s.surance did not elevate my worries; instead, they have gotten even more worried. If what we have discussed is help true, then Mira and all the other Kings who had gone to ruin are in immense danger.
We are talking about s.p.a.ce organism here; forget whether it is alive, dead, or in-between. The important question is that Miasma's source is powerful enough that since its origin, less than three people were able to close or reach its source.
So, one can imagine how powerful it is, and if it had any bad intentions, whether they are conscious or instinctive, then Mira and others will be in immense danger.
I hope it is not what I am thinking; I don't want anything to happen to her. I had just started dating, but I have already started to imagine years; I don't want to lose her.
I wallowed in my misery for a few minutes before I suppressed my thoughts and finished up the lunch. After lunch, I talked with my friends for a while before I went back to my ward.
