Chapter 1350 - Returning II
"I will miss you so much, babe." Mira had said it a hundredth of the time, but this will be the last time the airs.h.i.+p had reached the Academy, and it is time for me to leave.
"I'll miss you too," I said as I gave her one last hug and kiss on the lips before flew out of the airs.h.i.+p. She looked at me through it for minutes before the door of the airs.h.i.+p closed, and it shot out like a rocket and disappeared in front of my eyes in a second.
I had asked her to come inside the Academy, but she had declined. I wanted to spend one more day with her, but unfortunately, we have reached the Academy.
I landed in front of Academy Gate and walked inside it, and was let in without any problem, though I still have to show the proof of my ident.i.ty.
"I am back."
I said as I entered through the gates and saw the life-like statues. I still remember the day when I saw them for the first time; I have got quite enthralled by them and still do; the artist who made them was amazing, she had breath the life in those statues.
I bowed slightly toward the statues before walking toward the teacher's office, flying would faster, but I like to walk and see the changes that had happened to the Academy.
There was no much change; the Academy looked just as before, having the wonderful combination of old and new architecture and people that are coming and going out of them.
Half an hour later, I reached the teacher's office and knocked on the door. "Come in." The teacher said from inside me, hearing that I opened the door and went in.
There I found a teacher sitting alone in the usual chair, in front of her four screens are floating, each having a different thing on them.
"Teacher," I said respectfully as I took a seat in front of her. She looked at me without saying anything; I know she is using her soul sense on me, but I could not detect it like always.
Her control is so fine that even some tyrants could not tell when she uses her soul sense. It is a thing Ive heard from a few guests that had come to the teacher's birthday party.
"There is something different about you, I could not tell what it is, but I am glad you have it; you will all the strength you have to survive the 'I' Ruin." She said as her gaze turned normal.
"Teacher, why is the 'I' Ruin is so dangerous when it is barren? It is because of the weird Cosmic Energy there?" I asked the teacher.
The 'I 'Ruin's information is strictly guarded since it is a resource site, but some tidbits still got, like it is barren and having strange cosmic energy there.
The teacher looked at me for a few seconds, and I thought she would not tell me about it when she opened her mouth. "Do you know why we named that ruin, 'I' Ruin?" The teacher asked, to that I shook my head; I have no about its name.
"The 'I' stands for 'Immortal.' That was whats its original name." Teacher said. Hearing that, I couldn't help but feel shocked as 'Immortal.' Is not a word that could be easily used; this word helps a great weight; one did not use it without having a proper reason behind it.
"We called it Immortal Ruin because anyone that dies in it became immortal; they will be there forever, like the Ghouls, never dying, no matter how many times you killed them." Teacher said.
Her words have shocked me again, and this time at even more intensity, as her words' implication is very deeper.
If anyone who dies in it became immortal, then how many of those Ghoullike beings would be there. This Ruin is in the hands of the Academy for nearly three and a half thousand years and opened twice a year.
So, how many people have died there, and how many have become a Ghoul? The whole Ruin will be filled with those.
"Hehe," teacher seemed to have understood what I am thinking and pearly laugher released from her
"The Ghoul like beings are very dangerous, but you don't have to worry about then that much."
"Their number and strength depend on the special type of Cosmic Energy present in the Ruin which increases decrease like a tide; we will be sending your there when that special cosmic energy in Ruin is at its lowest." Teacher explained.
Hearing that, I couldn't help but take a sigh of relief. Like every sane person, I fear ghosts or being similar to a ghost, and I don't want them ganging up on me when I reach their realm.
"I will send you the file about the realm; read it in the privacy of your room." The teacher said as she sent me the confidential file.
I talked with the teacher an hour more with her enquiring about my days in the Miasmic Paradice in detail like she usually does when I came back from the new place.
A few minutes later, I flew to the lakehouse; it is just as I left it to be; it feels good to be back.
With my current power and being a headmistress student, I could get a better place. h.e.l.l, I could get a whole lake to myself with the only lakehouse in it, there are several those places in the Academy, but I did not.
There is no need to change it, I like it here, and I have good neighbors with whom I could talk to if I ever felt bored.
After freshening up, I lay on the couch comfortably before opening the confidential file that the teacher had sent me. I like to finish with it as soon as possible; the more I get to a.n.a.lyze all the information, the better my chances of surviving will be.
