After dealing with the neighbors who had come to borrow the oven, Lumi went to the second floor and entered the room that served as the study.
– in cole du village, many poor people don’t have the oven, also does not have the big stove, when need to bake bread or bacon, can only go to someone else’s house to borrow, use on the spot.
On this matter, Orlore had always been open-minded and tolerant. Anyone could borrow it, but they had to pay the corresponding fuel costs, or bring their own coal, wood, etc.
At this point, she has changed the white silk nightgown, is curled up in an easy chair, with the bright lamp that use battery on the desk lamp, intently at the books in his hand.
Lumian didn’t disturb her. He took a thin book from the shelf and sat down in a chair in the corner.
The Veil of Secrets What magazine is this?Lumian glanced at the cover that was full of strange symbols and his heart was filled with doubt.
He quickly flipped through the pages, and the more he looked, the more shocked he became.
This magazine is about the existence of the human soul form, is about animism, talking about the way through the secret and different spirit communication, get different help
Even if he was not devout at all, even if he just followed the crowd into the Church of the Eternal Blazing Sun to pray, and occasionally attended Mass, Lumian could not help but think of two words:
Although it was normal for Orlore to have a similar book at home as a wizard who would definitely be burned to death by the Inquisition if he was exposed, Lumian clearly saw that the magazine had a government publication permit!
This kind of thing can be published fair?
Not to say that publishing censorship has been very strict?
Or perhaps it was a forged permit. Lumian looked up at Orlour and asked,”
“Is this a banned magazine?”
Orl looked away from the book and glanced at her brother. She said nonchalantly,”
“In the past, it was. It belonged to the underground literature, but after some unknown reason, it passed the censorship and was officially published. The Church of the Eternal Blazing Sun actually didn’t care about it and just acquiesced.”
“Literature?”Lumian didn’t quite understand her sister’s choice of words.
“Of course it’s literature. You can’t take it seriously, can you?””If it’s true, do you think it’ll be published?”If you follow the above method, other than weakening your spirit and becoming neurotic, you won’t get any extra gains. Well, occasionally there will be some real things, but without the corresponding ritual language, no matter how hard you try, it will be a waste of time.”
This was the evaluation of a professional wizard.
“Well, well, well
Orlore puffed her cheeks as if she was thinking seriously.
“I don’t know why, perhaps in recent years, all over the supernatural, er, phenomenon involving extraordinary factors more and more, can’t hide all, brought a certain trend of thought, the government wants to let everyone know a little, so relax the control of similar books.In Trier, the more popular magazines are Psychic, Lotus, and Mysteries. I have them all on my bookshelf. If you are interested, you can look for them and have a look. In the future, you can make up stories in taverns and make them more like that.”
“Well,” he said.Lumian was indeed interested.
At the same time, he sighed in his heart again.
Mr Lauer’s collection is really rich and diverse!
It was through these books and Orlore’s explanation from time to time that he, a young man who had dropped out of school, had enough understanding of the world, the continent, and the country he lived in.
There were two continents in this world, the north and the south, separated by the raging sea, where hurricanes raged and navigation was difficult. As for the legendary east and west continents, no one had arrived yet, so no one could confirm whether they existed or not.
The Intis Republic that Lumian and O’Laurel lived in was located in the middle of the Northern Continent. It was bordered by the Fog Sea in the west, the Feysac Empire in the north, and the Loen Kingdom across the Hornacis Mountains in the east. The countries that bordered on the south were the Feynapotter Kingdom, Lenburg, and Massey.
Between Feynapotter and Loen, there are other small countries such as Segal, which, along with Lenburg and Marcy, are called the countries of Central and South America, sharing the belief in the “God of Knowledge and Wisdom.”
The Southern Continent had become a colony of the Northern Continent. Be it the Balam Empire, the Kingdom of Pass, the Kingdom of Hagarty, or other countries, they had lost most of their autonomy. Of course, the wave of resistance to colonization had never stopped.
In addition to the Berserk Sea between the Southern and Northern Continents and the Fog Sea to the west of the Intis Republic, there was also the Sonia Sea to the east of the Loen Kingdom, the North Sea to the north of the Feysac Empire, and the Polar Sea to the south of the Southern Continent. They were also known as the “Five Seas.”
And among the countries of the Northern Continent, the Loen Kingdom was the strongest in terms of overall strength, followed by the Intis Republic. The Feysac Empire, which had lost in the previous war, fell to fourth place, while the Feynapotter Kingdom rose to third place. Among the countries of the Central South, Lenburg was the most powerful.
Compared to the villagers of Cordu who only knew about the Intis Republic, Feynapotter Kingdom, and Lenburg, Lumian was a geographer.
Of course, this was only because the shepherds of Coldu Village needed to move to the neighboring Feynapotter Kingdom and Lenburg, so they had a certain understanding of these two countries. If it were the people of the northern villages of the Dalege region, apart from the surrounding villages, towns, and cities, they would only be able to name the big cities of their own country, such as Trier and Sucht.
Sometimes, Lumian was really puzzled. How could Orlor have so much knowledge?
All the textbooks he studied were compiled by Orroll, and the practice papers were all written by Orroll. Whenever there were any questions in the books he read, Orroll would be able to answer them!
More importantly, she also holds the various schools of combatives.
This was not something a girl in her twenties could do. Some people could not accumulate so much knowledge even after living for 50 or 60 years.
Are these the basic conditions for being a real wizard?Lumian looked up at Orlore again.
Mr Laura while reading a book with your fingers gently patted his cheek, there is no scholar and wizard.
“What do you mean?”Mr. Laurel sensed his gaze.
“You said last time that I have the knowledge to take the unified entrance examination for colleges and universities?”Lumian changed the subject.
Mr Laura want to under way:
“In theory, you can get into any university, but I didn’t take the entrance exam, so I’m not sure about the exact scope of the questions.
“Roselle is really bad, ah, this is also a good thing.”
There was no doubt that the unified entrance examination for higher education institutions was created when Emperor Roselle was in power, and it continued until now.
O’Laura suddenly remembered something. She looked at Lumian and smiled.”
“Why didn’t you go to the pub to make up stories today?”
“I’m not sure.”Lumian shook up the magazine in his hand.”Reading at home is also a good way to entertain yourself.”
But also can let my mood calm, relaxed state of his in my heart silently complement 1.
O’Laura nodded and looked at Lumian’s corner.”
“How do you know?”You this is in the dress up as poor, weak, helpless?
“Come on, you need good light to read at night, or it will hurt your eyes.”
O’Laurel’s strange words were really strange. Although I could understand the meaning of the words “pitiful”,”weak”, and “helpless”, it was very strange when they were put together. It was not like the normal usage. Lumian had long been used to O’Laurel’s behavior. He lifted his chair and came to the desk.
In front of the bright lamp, he and Orlore were reading books quietly, chatting occasionally.
Breathing, the voice of the page flip, sometimes the night wind blowing outside the window, soothing and peaceful.
aft saying good night to O’Lauer, Lumian went back to his room.
He took off his coat, still hanging it on the back of his chair, and did not attempt to bring the “scepter” card to the bed.
This is afraid of cause the Laura’s suspicion, after all, my sister said that will always take care of him.
Lumian was about to walk toward the bed when he suddenly stopped.
He turned his eyes and adjusted the chair, which was usually placed at an angle, to face the window.
Then, he went to bed and put out the kerosene lamp on the cabinet next to it.
After falling asleep normally, Lumian woke up with a jerk.
Once again, he saw the bedroom filled with light fog.
Having been mentally prepared, Lumian looked around calmly and discovered something.
The chair that he had purposely placed before going to bed was still tilted in the dream, maintaining its previous appearance.
In other words, the bedroom in the dream is not exactly the same as reality. It may have come from the deepest impression in my subconscious mind. Although I don’t know what this means, Lumian thinks it’s a point to remember.
He came to the window, his hands on the table, looked out.
The mountain peak made up of brownish red rocks and reddish brown soil, as well as the collapsed buildings surrounding it, once again came into his sight.
It was deathly quiet here.
Time passed quickly. After a moment of hesitation, Lumian finally made up his mind.
Tonight to do preliminary, certain exploration!
His previous wandering life made him vicious.
He didn’t immediately go downstairs and enter the ruins. Instead, he opened the cabinet and started to add clothes.
It is not that he feels cold, but that he improves his “defense” a little in this way.
After putting on his cotton coat, trousers, and leather jacket, Lumian stretched his body. He felt that he could not add any more, as it would obviously affect his agility.
This is more important.
As he was adapting to his current state, a thought suddenly flashed through Lumian’s mind.
This is my dream, I want what not there will be?
Holding the psychological, try he began to murmuring:
“I want a breastplate, a pistol, a breastplate, a pistol.”
There was no change in the room that was filled with a faint gray fog.
It seemed that he couldn’t. This dream was indeed special. Lumian calmed down his disappointment, opened the bedroom door, and stepped into the corridor.
There is no light, giddy and dim.
Lumian opened the doors of Orlore’s bedroom and study one after another. The layout inside was slightly different from reality, but it was roughly the same. The biggest difference was that neither scene had Orlore. It was as if they were frozen in gray.
The same is true on the first floor.
Lumian began to search for weapons to defend himself. With his familiarity with home, he soon had two choices:
The first was that the front end was made of steel. It was a fork that was nearly two meters long. In Orlore’s words, as long as the target did not have a ranged weapon, this thing would definitely be useful and the effect would definitely be outstanding.
The second was a sharp iron-black hand axe.
The adult’s answer was that everything must be done. Lumian somehow remembered a phrase that Orrell used to say, but in the end, he didn’t do it.
Because he is doing a preliminary exploration today, need is hidden, careful, almost stealth.
And with such a long weapon, will certainly be a drag on his actions, let him easily exposed.
Lumian exhaled slowly, bent over, and picked up the axe.
He then straightened his body and walked towards the door in the faint gray fog.
Silently, he pulled open the door.
