A few moments later, the line moved on and soon it was the platinum-haired girl’s turn. She stepped forward, and pulled a platinum card out of her purse and handed it over.
“Mylissa Cador. This is for the fees.”
The staff behind the counter took the card and swiped it. The moment she saw the details she was stunned for a bit, before handing the card with an even more courteous attitude.
“Miss Mylissa, wishing you a wonderful campus life.”
“Thank you.” Mylissa took the admission papers and left the line.
Lin Sheng followed suit and handed his normal identity card over.
“Lin Sheng, here’s my card.”
As the staff took the card, the process went on without a hitch, and his admission papers were soon handed to him as well.
Just as he was about to turn away, he heard someone murmuring.
“It’s Mylissa, another Cador here?”
“Probably that younger sister then. Having both sisters entering the same school. Heh, they aren’t afraid of that conflagration?”
“This is Miga, not Olro. We value freedom here and don’t have all those nonsensical rules and etiquettes. Isn’t it normal to attract talents?”
“Hey, it’s rude to gossip!”
“The Cador’s had just beaten someone up there, and now there’s an even better way for revenge. Did they send the girl here to get slaughtered? What is that sh*t? A sacrifice?”
All sorts of voices entered Lin Sheng’s ears. His body at the moment could allow him to listen to every sound within ten-odd meters off him, and even more, but what he heard was some juicy tidbits.
Yet, he just frowned and shut the voices off.
He was here to study, not to gossip.
After settling the admission process, there was someone to arrange for accommodation, study materials, and class schedules.
The hostel was a simple single room, with a built-in washroom and a small balcony. A good enough setup. The teaching materials were no different than the normal university-level study materials, without anything to do with dark powers.
All of them were Migan history, the university’s history, philosophy, Migan language primer, basic biology, basic chemistry, and the likes.
After getting the study materials, it was almost dinner time.
Lin Sheng simply had a meal in the school canteen. The canteen was not much different than the outside ones, and the food was actually worse than the one in Shermanton.
But back there, Khadula had been taking his place in class. Over there, Lin Sheng still existed, and over here, it was a Lin Sheng who shared the same name and surname but was a totally different person.
For Xilinites, the name was not uncommon, and there were at least a few hundreds or thousands of Lin Shengs there.
Lin Sheng could not be bothered to take on a disguise, and he simply adjusted his personal profile. For someone like him who had Level 6 sacred power and Level 7 overall attributes, it was nothing.
Besides, his identity there was merely that of Lin Sheng’s distant relative from the Holy Sanctum.
After he got the bed ready and arranged his study materials, Lin Sheng stood before the balcony, looking at the scenery outside.
His room was on the first floor, and just below, that pompous lady, Mylissa was speaking to someone on the grounds before him.
And the person she was talking to seemed to be a student here, but possibly a senior.
The three of them exchanged words but the atmosphere was not pleasant and had gotten tense.
Very quickly, someone shouted at Mylissa as tempers frayed. The person seemingly stepped forward to hit her but was stopped by their companions.
Lin Sheng sniggered as he watched it. From his angle, it just looked like some brats no older than sixteen or seventeen were fighting while trying to act like adults at the same time. It was, honestly, quite hilarious.
*Knock, knock, knock.*
Suddenly, a knock was heard on his door and Lin Sheng went over to open it.
He saw a few new students standing outside, and one of the cheerful body with short brown hair immediately smiled at Lin Sheng.
“We are new students who are staying in the neighboring rooms. I’m Felle, do you want to hang out and get to know each other?”
“No, thank you.” Lin Sheng wore a warm smile. He had no time to waste with the group of brats.
“Oh…” Felle was a little stunned, but he still courteously nodded, apologized and closed the door. He had not expected someone would actually decline that, and when he left he was still in a daze.
As he closed the door, Lin Sheng went to bed.
The dream was the same as last time. It was a new place and he was still trying to get used to the place, so he did not do anything drastic.
Hence, Lin Sheng managed to rest properly.
He wanted to get in touch with the core secrets of the dark powers within the shortest time possible, and that would need him to display his innate talents. Especially in the field of dark powers.
Luckily for him, the core of dark powers was the soul, and his spirit was just his strongest possible point. With soul and spirit so closely intertwined, he should not have any problems here.
When he was at Xylond, he had taken the assessment and he had the potential to awaken his dark powers.
“Hopefully everything goes smoothly without a hitch.”
With that thought in mind, Lin Sheng covered himself and slowly sank into meditation.
Before he left, he had summoned the cleric out and got him to create a tome, and that allowed him to get a new Ashen Seal.
If not for the fact that a Holy Sanctum could only have one tome and each tome could only record a signal Ashen Seal, Lin Sheng would probably get the cleric to engrave every seal he knew.
“I’m glad that you had chosen Baine University as your starting grounds to awaken your dark powers.”
The third day after enrolment. Seven o’clock in the morning.
Lin Sheng attended his first lecture on dark powers.
The lecturer was a bald bespectacled old man. He was no taller than five feet as he held a meter long teaching cane in his hand, pointing at the whiteboard from time to time while scribbling notes on it.
Lin Sheng sat within the forty-plus students, and like the pompous lady, Mylissa, he was focused on listening to the lecture.
“Many people take the awakening of dark powers as being possessed by demonic powers, or someone going mental, some take it as a supernatural ability, the sign of rebirth.” The old bald man sniggered.
“Sadly, all of those are false, ignorant thoughts. The dark powers themselves are the power of the soul, the manifestation of wills. Alright, let’s cut to the chase.”
With a snap of his finger, a green light suddenly flashed out.
Soon, an intricate crystal prism appeared before Lin Sheng’s table.
“This is an assessment crystal. To assess the alacrity of your dark powers. Now, focus upon it, and imagine it turning black,” the bald lecturer said.
Lin Sheng looked around and noticed all of the students around had the same thing.
He saw Mylissa, sitting behind him to the left toyed around nonchalantly with the crystal with a disgruntled look, boredom was evident his her eyes.
It seemed like this lady here had already tested this at home before.
As he cast his sight back to the crystal, Lin Sheng too wanted to find out, what sort of dark powers aptitude he had.
He focused onto the crystal and started imagining it turning black.
A moment later, the bald lecturer spoke and broke everyone’s focus.
“Based on the coloration, and hue of blackness, we will categorize them into nine different grades. The closer it is to black, the better one’s aptitude is. Look up, and match the color of your crystal to the chart, and determine what your aptitude is.”
The old lecturer walked about among the students, and the moment he saw a crystal with a changed color, he collected and recorded them down.
Not long after, as he arrived before Lin Sheng’s desk, he was slightly flabbergasted. The moment he saw the crystal prism before Lin Sheng had turned pitch black, his expression mellowed and he even smiled genially at Lin Sheng.
Lin Sheng smiled back out of etiquette.
