Fantasy Simulator - Chapter 165
“This is where the two of us stay.”
After walking to this region, Michael suddenly stopped and looked at Chen Heng as he spoke, “You two can stay beside here and come to find us if you have anything. We’ll normally be here.”
Michael pointed at two rooms by the side.
This was evidently good treatment.
To be able to stay close to Michael and Ordo, whether it was in terms of safety or convenience, it would be quite good for them.
At the same time, it was a way of getting close to them.
“Yes,” Chen Heng and Zana respectfully nodded.
Following this, Michael and Ordo left.
Now that the ship was about to leave, as the people in charge here, there were still many things that they had to take care of.
They essentially had no free time.
After the two of them left, it was just Chen Heng and Zana.
“Which room do you want?” Chen Heng asked softly as he looked at Zana.
“I’ll take this one.” Zana had a look and chose the one on the left.
Chen Heng nodded and went to the right room.
However, at that moment, Zana’s voice once again sounded out.
Behind him, Zana was standing in front of her room and she looked at Chen Heng as she spoke in a very small voice, “Would you like to come in and chat?”
Chen Heng immediately understood.
“Maybe next time.”
After thinking for a moment, he smiled, “I’ll come and find you after. There are some things that I want to ask you about anyways.”
“So it’s like that…” Hearing Chen Heng’s voice, Zana seemed a bit disappointed, but she nodded, “I’ll wait for you to come over then.”
Chen Heng closed his door with a clack.
“Are people from Sorcerer families usually all so precocious?” Chen Heng inwardly shook his head.
Zana was about the same age as him, around 15 or 16 years old.
However, she seemed quite precocious.
However, Chen Heng did not pay much mind to her.
Given the age of his mind, he was not that interested in flirting.
Before, Chen Heng had heard some information from Zana. The Roland family that she was from was much inferior to the Doyle family. Even though they also had a Third Rank Apprentice, he was far less powerful than Griffin.
In terms of background, she was much more lacking than Chen Heng.
“With the aptitude I’ve displayed, I will most likely be able to receive greatly nurturing and might even cause some true Sorcerers to become interested in me and take me as a student.”
Chen Heng thought to himself, “I wonder how things will turn out.”
After a while, he sat on his bed and began to go through Meditation.
Just like before, no matter his situation, Chen Heng would diligently cultivate.
This cultivation was not just for other people, but to set up a foundation for himself so he could obtain more opportunities in the future.
Otherwise, if his foundation was insufficient, even if an opportunity arose, he might not be able to grasp it.
Chen Heng had experienced this in the past.
Time gradually passed.
In the following days, Chen Heng did not go out much and stayed in his room to do Meditation. He maintained a simple lifestyle, not coming out apart from eating.
Soon, it had been one month.
After one month, they were finally close to their destination.
Standing at the front of the ship, Michael gave a slight smile, “This is our destination. Ahead is Helo City, which is a resting point. We will stay there for a while before heading to the Black Forest.”
Hearing his words, the surrounding students all smiled.
After a month or so of sailing, they all felt quite tired and wanted to get back on land.
Honestly speaking, traveling by sea was not very pleasant.
At first, some people thought that it was quite novel and interesting, but as time went on, staring at the boundless sea, everyone felt quite uncomfortable and wanted to leave.
As such, hearing Michael’s words, they could not help but feel excited.
“Now, all of you should go and prepare.”
Looking at everyone’s reactions, Ordo’s expression was cold as he said calmly, “Get your luggage ready. If you’re late, I’ll throw you down to feed the fishes.”
Hearing his words, many people shuddered.
Ordo was not the type to joke around.
During the trip, an unlucky fellow had angered Ordo and had been done in by him; the scene had been incredibly grisly.
That person had been skinned and hung from the ship using hooks while he was still alive. He had been made to suffer from the seawater afflicting his flesh as well as feeding the fish.
By now, he had become a skeleton.
Thinking about that person, everyone shivered and immediately went to pack their things.
Only Chen Heng and Zana continued to calmly stand behind Michael.
They had long since heard about this and already packed their things.
Of course, Chen Heng did not have many things to pack anyways.
He only had some clothes and the like, and those things were not worth much money.
As for magic stones, he carried them with him and did not have to pack them.
The ship traveled quickly, and after half an hour, land could be clearly seen in the distance.
Soon, the ship stopped and Michael and Ordo led the students off and into the city.
Helo City looked quite prosperous.
This kind of prosperity was different from the places Chen Heng had seen before.
Not only were there ordinary people in Helo City, but there were also Sorcerers and even some Outlanders.
On the streets, Chen Heng could see crude-looking people whose bodies were covered with black fur. These were Blackfur People, and Chen Heng had seen them back in the previous simulation.
There were actually many of them here.
In fact, there were many special Blackfur People.
They also had dense black fur, but they wore special Sorcerer robes and gave off powerful mental energy ripples.
“Those are Blackfur People Sorcerer Apprentices,” Michael explained, “The Blackfur People also have many Sorcerers, and these people are most likely here to buy some things.”
“Buy some things?” Chen Heng asked.
Michael nodded, “Helo City is the largest slave trading area in this area. There are many unique slaves, from ordinary people to Elves.”
“Even Elves?” Chen Heng could not help but feel a bit surprised.
Chen Heng had long since known about the existence of Elves in the Sorcerer World, but after obtaining the memories from this body, he had gained even more information.
According to this body’s memories, the Elves in this world were quite a special race.
They had great strength and had ruled this world in ancient times, until they were overthrown by Human Sorcerers.
Compared to Humans, they did not have high fecundity, but their lifespans were very long. Even ordinary Elves lived for around 300 years.
At the same time, they were called a perfect race.
The Elves not only had high Sorcerer talent, but they also all had good looks and were liked by other races.
Sorcerers quite liked Elves because having an Elf giving birth to their child meant that their descendants would have more likelihood of having Sorcerer talent.
Many years ago, the Elf race had already disappeared and hidden themselves away, making it difficult for outsiders to find them.
As such, it was quite a surprise that there would be Elf slaves here.
Chen Heng felt quite surprised but did not say anything.
This world was full of surprises.
No matter how well the Elves hid, there would be some who would be inevitably discovered.
As such, it was not that surprising that they would become slaves here.
“After you formally start learning, you will have to do some experiments,” Michael said, “Slaves are good experimental subjects. The slaves at Helo City are quite cheap, so if you need some in the future, you can come here to buy them.”
Behind him, Chen Heng nodded, looking quite interested.
Following this, they continued to walk on.
After a while, they reached the location of the Hunter’s House’s branch here and rested there.
The next day, they left this city and headed towards the Hunter’s House.
In the blink of an eye, a few more days passed.
On the seventh day, they finally reached the Hunter’s House.
Ahead was a massive forest of structures.
Most of the buildings were black and seemed quite gloomy.
After arriving here, Chen Heng could not help but look around.
With his sharp mental energy, he could clearly sense the mental impurities hidden here.
These mental impurities usually manifested as countless people howling and crying out, sounding quite terrifying.
Chen Heng felt as if he had returned to the Doyle family’s castle.
It was just as terrifying, eerie, and suffocating.
However, this made sense.
It was said that an environment greatly affected a person.
It made sense that since Griffin came from this academy, it would have affected him.
Michael continued walking onward.
This place was quite dangerous and filled with Sorcerer Formations and traps. If one did not know this place well, they would most likely fall into danger as soon as they came here
However, with Michael leading the way, they remained safe as they slowly walked onward.
Soon, they came before a large gate.
There were a few black crows with crimson-red eyes next to the gate, coldly looking at those who passed, as if they were dead people.
“Is this them?” a voice sounded out from ahead.
As the gate was opened, a black-robed elder was revealed. He looked at Michael and Ordo as he said, “There doesn’t look like many of them.”
His voice was very hoarse and low, and he did not look like he was in a good condition.
However, looking at this person, Michael and Ordo were very respectful.
“There’s nothing we can do about it.”
Michael lowered his head as he said, “It seems to be because of the academies, so we had fewer students this round.
“However, it’s fine.”
Speaking to there, he paused before smiling, “This time, we found two students with outstanding aptitude.”
The elder at the gate seemed a bit surprised and became more enlivened, “How outstanding are they?”
“One Level 3 and one Level 4 Sorcerer talent,” Ordo said.
“Level 4.” The elder stared for a moment before giving a slight smile, “Not bad, not bad. Even though there is less useless trash, to be able to gain a student like that, this is quite good.
“Who is it?” he suddenly asked as he looked at Ordo.
As such, Ordo looked at Chen Heng and motioned for him to come forward.
Chen Heng nodded and silently walked over.
Looking at Chen Heng, the elder gave a slight smile with his pale face, “No bad.
Remember, my name is Langor and am the Apprentice responsible for this gate.
“If you want to go out, just let me know.”
He looked quite friendly as he spoke.
Chen Heng nodded, “Thank you, Mister Langor.”
“It’s fine,” Langor nodded before turning and continuing to chat with Michael and Ordo.
They talked about various things, from trifling matters to the situation in the surroundings, then about the academy.
Only after a while did they go in.
From the start to the end, apart from Michael and Ordo, he only paid some attention to Chen Heng.
As for Zana and the other students, he did not even bother looking at them.
It was a clear difference in treatment.
Seeing this, Chen Heng understood.
As expected, no matter when or where, geniuses were given better treatment.
This was why Chen Heng had spent some Points.
Otherwise, he would not be valued much by others and would most likely be like Zana and the others, and he would be ignored by Langor.
Chen Heng was calm about this; he was already used to it.
After entering the academy, the first thing they did was be put into classes.
Including Chen Heng and Zana, about 20 or so students were put in the same class.
Each class had around 50 to 60 people, and apart from the students from where Chen Heng had come from, there were some other students.
This was just the start. After gaining some basic knowledge, they would be put into new classes based on their progress.
Time gradually passed.
The next morning, Chen Heng went to the classroom.
The classroom was quite sparse and it was quite bright inside.
It was still early, and not many people were here.
Apart from Chen Heng, there were only two or three others here.
Seeing Chen Heng walk in, they only coldly glanced over before continuing to do what they had been doing.
This made Chen Heng, who had been planning to get to know some people and gain some information, feel quite surprised.
It seemed that Sorcerers were much less social than the other places he had gone to.
People did not mingle much here, nor did they loudly chat.
Everyone seemed quite cold and silently sat in their seats.
Chen Heng felt quite frustrated but there was nothing he could do about it.
He chose a seat and began to read through a book.
After reaching here and officially joining the academy, he had been given many books. Apart from a Basic Meditation Technique, there was also a Meditation Technique for gathering elemental particles and enhancing one’s magic power.
Apart from this, there were also thick books on various subject areas.
Chen Heng had read for a long time last night but had only gone through a tiny bit.
All of this knowledge was very important, and if he wanted to engrave it into his mind, it would take him much time and effort.
Of course, if one had enough magic stones, they could ask someone to use magic techniques to directly send that information into their mind.
However, this required many magic stones and was quite risky.
Human minds were quite weak and could be damaged during the process.
Those who were unfortunate could become mentally disabled.
As such, diligently memorizing the content was preferable.
Chen Heng had an advantage in this respect.
With his powerful mental energy, his memory was incredibly good.
For some things that it would take ordinary people much effort to memorize, he could easily memorize it after taking a few looks.
This was one of the benefits of having powerful mental energy.
