Chapter 947 - Knowledge Crystals I
The crunching sounds rang out as I entered the hall in the hall on the second floor. Time had destroyed everything worthwhile that had remained in this building except for the building itself, which would collapse in a hundred some years.
As I had entered, I looked around for a while, checking the size of the hall before I took out the abode and activated it.
I would have liked to scour the 2nd floor for some valuables now, but I decided not to create too much noise at night and leave the scouring for the evening when it was less dangerous.
I activated the abode and went inside; the first thing I did was a shower before I started to make the food. I did not waste too much time on the dinner and cooked the simple meal which I ate alone since Ashlyn was still in a deep sleep.
Finished with the dinner, I converted my bedroom to the training room and started practicing with the sword while also circulating Supreme Combat Exercise and Secret Method.
This place is not suitable for the practice of the Body Cleansing Technique, though I recovered quickly after practicing the method, to reach the I still have to wait for quite a while, so it is better that I practice the two methods which did not make me tired at all.
I am practicing with Rapier, which has quite a great weight, though earlier I had fought using it, my movements were not as great as I would like them to be. It was a good thing the enemies I was fighting were mindless Blood Thralls; if they were humans or Grimm Monsters, I would have had quite a difficult problem dealing with them.
I had practice for two hours until I started to feel tired. I continue for a few hours, but that would make me more tired which I do not want, in this Ruin, I wish to remain at my Peak all the time, so even if any danger came, I would be able to deal with it or run away from it effectively.
After showering again to wash away all the sweat, I converted the training room into the bedroom and laid on it reading. It is quite early for me to sleep, so I decided to read while I practiced the two methods.
I read for a few hours before I close the window of my holowatch and close my eyes to sleep.
When I woke up, it was dawn, the 1st day in Ruin had been over and the second day had to begin. I quickly woke up, freshened up, and showered before heating and eating the leftovers of yesterday. Few minutes after I finished my early lunch, I walked out of the Abode and deactivated it.
The runaways coming through the gaps lighting the whole hall apart, I did not have to use the light stone again to see in the hall.
'It is time to search for the treasure.' I said and took out the wooden stick from my storage and started to use it to move the stuff around to search for the valuables. In such places, it is imperative that I did not use my hand; some unstable Rune or trap might cut my hands off.
The hall is quite big, and it took me nearly an hour to scan through it and most valuable stuff.
I got some rare sc.r.a.p metal just like yesterday, seeing that I felt a little disappointed but not much as to find the treasure, one would need not only luck but also persistence.
Since there is no luck today, I will make do with persistence, I thought, and walked ahead toward different rooms, which looked like it was a kitchen or lab or some sort.
This building I am in is a normal size building, so it is obvious it will have more than just one room, and since I am here, I might just scour the whole floor, I might get lucky and find something good.
After I finished with the hall, I entered the room, which had been either kitchen or lab some kind, I concurred as I looked at types of withered equipment lying around the floor.
I checked that room and found nothing but sc.r.a.p metals before moving toward another room where I found nothing but sc.r.a.p metal too; as such, I had gone through a total five-rooms, and now one room had remained, and by the size, it is the smallest one.
Seeing the amount of stuff piled into the small room, it seemed to be a small storage room. There is a s.h.i.+t load of stuff there; it will take me quite a while to go through it.
"Let's hope the trouble here will give me something good," I said as I am going through the stuff that will take me at least two hours, I just hope that I will find something good here that will at least put a small smile on my face when I leave this room.
I changed into a different kind of wooden stick to go through the stuff one by one, looking at each stuff carefully before throwing it away and such an hour pa.s.sed, but I found nothing but trash in this room, there is not even any rare sc.r.a.p metal that worth taking.
Tung gul gul…
Seeing there is nothing, my mood started to worsen and I increased my speed, not wanting to spend too much time when suddenly through the withered metal box, a crystal ball fell down.
When I looked at the crystal ball, my eyes couldn't help but wide open, and a bright smile couldn't help but appear as I looked at the crystal ball which had stopped by my feet.
"Knowledge Crystal," I said, it had been quite a while since I last saw the knowledge crystal, the last I saw it when jill had sent it to me, though it was useless to me as I already had the knowledge that knowledge crystal has, my mother used it and gained the knowledge from it.
I looked at the Knowledge Crystal for a while before I picked it up with my gloved hands and stored it into the delicate box.
These things are very precious and fragile; it was my luck that knowledge crystals hadn't shattered by the fall, or otherwise, I would have never been able to forget myself.
Reminding myself to be careful from now on, I took a metallic box from which the knowledge Crystal had fallen and tore it open, and in there, I saw another two gleaming crystals b.a.l.l.s.
Seeing them, my body started to shake; this is an immense fortune I've come across, which could be even more valuable than the Blazing Rose, which Ashlyn got yesterday,y depending on the knowledge it contains.
I had thought about getting good things through my scourge of these rooms but never expected to get knowledge crystals that are not one but three at that.
I put the two knowledge crystals in the same box as the first one before I started to take a look at things inside the room with even more care, but unfortunately, there was nothing valuable in the room after the trash.
