Chapter 1351 - ‘I’ Ruin I
A week pa.s.sed by, and the day of the Ruin Gate opening have come. The past few days were quite happy; my days were spent studying, practicing, and in the company of Teacher and Elina.
The teacher taught me a few hours every day; these lessons were extremely precious, especially for my healing arts. The teacher has vast experience, and her knowledge is immense; she had the answers to all my questions.
"You have come finally; let's go; the Ruin Gate will open in half an hour," Elina said just as I landed in front of the Black Castle.
In the few months Ive been away, Elina had grown even more beautiful and emitting an otherworldly feeling that hosts of all bloodlines emit; she had also reached the High Level of Prince Stage, and I will have to try hard if I want to defeat her.
As I had landed, Elena had nearly pulled me as we walked into the black castle. The Black Castle, which is also its official name, is one of the most fortified locations in the whole Academy.
This castle was made from very rare materials and warded by her excellency Roosevelt herself. The castle contains only one thing: the realm gate on which the coordinates of 'I' Ruin are carved.
It is one of the two places that contain the coordinates of 'I' Ruins; the other place is in the head of Headmaster/Headmistress. The 'I' Ruin is one of the most precious resources in the Academy's hands; such security and confidentiality are warranted.
Soon we reach a huge hall in which the Ruin Gate present; in the hall, people stood in three groups. The group on the left is wearing Black Coat while the group on the right is wearing a Blue Coat; both groups have fifty people each.
As for the central group that is between them, it has three hundred and forty-two people who are wearing a white coat like I and Elina are wearing.
The left group wearing the Black is from the Hawthorn Sea, while the right is wearing the Blue is from Wisdom Tower, and the ones wearing the white coat are from Academy.
Usually, we did not share our resource site with anyone, including the Hawthorn Seal and Wisdom Tower, but we do once in a decade before the start of the World Champions.h.i.+p; it is part of the ancient agreement.
I don't like this agreement, nor does the teacher. We share our resource site with them, but these people don't; they have many resource sites in their control, but they did not share the single one.
The worst thing is the pittance they offer as compensation for the usage of our Resource Site; it is less than ten times what we deserve.
We attracted the attention as we have entered the great hall, everybody looked at us, from groups to the Tyrant who is responsible for the group.
We walked under the deep gazes and reached the front of a central group; as the Headmistress student, I will lead the groups inside the realm despite having one of the lowest levels here.
Here 80% that are present here are Kings, and the rest 20% are Princes and even among the Princes, most of them at the High Level or the Peak Level.
There are a few Tyrants and Emperors as well, but they can't enter the Ruin as the limit of Ruin is at the King Stage.
"Now that everyone has appeared let me give you some piece of advice that will save your lives in the ruin." Said Professor Josephine, who was standing in front of the realm gate.
"Don't let the Ghouls gather around you; the more they gather, the more they will attract and remember to maintain more than two hundred meter distance from the ghouls when your beacon begins to s.h.i.+ne."
"The beacon doesn't work properly when they are in the near vicinity of ghouls, so get away from the ghouls as soon as your beacon begins to s.h.i.+ne; otherwise, you will be stuck in the Ruin and became a ghoul," Professor said.
The last sentence she said has quite an ominous tone that quite a few people have shuddered visibly hearing that.
The silence descended again, and this time it had lasted for nearly an hour. The Ruin gate was supposed to open half an hour later, but Ruin hadn't come to its position at the right time, so we had to wait.
The runic buzzed, and runes begin to s.h.i.+ne on it until they have become blinding, and a minute later watery screen appeared on the Ruin Gate.
"All right, the Ruin gate has opened; Micheal, enter the gate." Professor Josephine said. I nodded at her and walked into the gate; it will be six days before I and others could return to the Academy.
When I entered the other side, the first I felt was chill; it is not the cold's chill, which this realm is, but something entirely different. Feeling this chill, I instantly come across the feeling I used to have after watching a horror movie.
Other than the chill, I night that only light from the faintly twinkling stars above, to be honest, such environment felt quite dreary, but I will have to get used to it, for six days I am in this Ruin.
This Ruin's environment is special; there is always a night; one would never see a day here.
After looking around for a few minutes, using my soul sense, which is slightly suppressed in the environment, I opened the seals of my armor so that my body would come in contact with the energy of this Ruin.
This special energy is the reason why I had come to this Ruin, and now I want to see how effective it is in raising the potential me.
I hope it is great, at least greater than what the aura field around my Inheritance Ruin provides me; otherwise, coming here would be completely wasteful.
