Soul Of Negary - chapter 346
Without any supernatural phenomena, the seemingly abnormal book was easily taken by ‘Negary’.
〖 The Origin of Life 〗as ‘Negary’ glanced at the title of the book, the overlapping sensation from earlier returned. Apparently, those who had chosen their book would be immediately transported out of the Grand Library.
When ‘Negary’ once again reappeared inside the Mobis Institute’s library, the light of dawn was already peering in through the window, and the coal he lit earlier had been burnt thoroughly through.
As if some sort of connection had been opened inside the institute, a gust of wind drifted through the entire campus. A malicious gaze was peering closely at ‘Negary’ from unknown space, only disappearing after a long while.
When the gust of wind disappeared, ‘Negary’s’ rigid mentality slowly relaxed, allowing him to think of various matters again.
〖 The smaller percentage event occurred 〗
‘Negary’ scowled as he fell into thought. According to his initial estimations, despite how well he had tried to hide, there was a great possibility of him being exposed during this reconnaissance and for this clone of his to die in a trap.
For that reason, ‘Negary’ had prepared a ritual within the library. According to past examples, those who head into the Grand Library would usually disappear for exactly two hours, if ‘Negary’ still hadn’t returned after this period of time, a cursing ritual would automatically activate with Negary’s clone as the target.
This curse would borrow the power of a certain drifting Evil God within the Moon Tree world, one of the contingencies that the original Negary had prepared, meant to continuously probe for the truth, using this clone as a trigger.
If there was some other power that acted directly on the ritual within the library, then it would even be better as Negary would borrow both the Evil God and the one who acted to also probe for the truth. All in all, his preparations were all meant to lure the origin of the abnormality to act.
There were also measures that this Negary clone didn’t know about as well, with the activation condition being this Negary clone’s death.
Naturally, ‘Negary’ had also assumed the possibility of himself returning, so he prepared another ritual formation that overlapped with the cursing ritual that would cut off the cursing ritual as soon as any lifeform suddenly manifested inside it, then draw the Evil God’s attention.
〖 This Evil God didn’t attack and only left a brand on my body; it seems the original is somehow related to this Evil God 〗
Numerous thoughts crossed ‘Negary’s’ mind, considering his short contact with the Grand Library and the circumstances of things after he returned.
〖 Then, I’m currently another foundation for cooperation? 〗’Negary’ looked down at the book in his hand, [The Origin of Life], then meticulously cleaned up the ritual items within the library before sitting on a bench in the library and fell into deep thought.
Outwardly, Negary was someone on Eternal Heat’s side, but that was only outwardly. His allegiance would forever lie with no one other than himself, not to mention, the alliance between Negary and Eternal Heat wasn’t particularly strict either.
〖 Because of that, my secret appearance in the Academic City was firstly to act as a reconnaissance, and secondly to avoid Eternal Heat’s monitoring 〗in just a few moments, ‘Negary’ understood this fact: 〖 There is surely a hidden contingency on my body that I don’t know about, if I had triggered the trap of the one behind this abnormality, then my probing would have been actual probing, but if they had become allies thanks to the hidden contingency I carry, then I would become their mutual tacit agreement 〗
〖 From how things currently are, things had most likely trended towards the second possibility, my original had formed a secret agreement with Life Bearer 〗’Negary’ understood his value very well: 〖 As expected of Negary, treating even his own clone as a piece on the board without any hesitation 〗
〖 And so, my current mission is to remain in hiding and become the bridge to his cooperation with Life Bearer, up until either this agreement does what it is meant to, or until it fails and both sides once again become enemies 〗
‘Negary’ shook his head, he hated this feeling of being manipulated, but he wouldn’t go on strike or shout ‘my life belongs to me, not to god’ and try to rebel against Negary. Instead, he would grasp every opportunity he had to improve himself, if his ideals surpassed the original Negary, then he would become the new Negary.
Power was nothing but the byproduct of one’s ideals and principles.
〖 From the looks of it, the abnormalities in Mobis Institute happened because when the Dean of the Mobis Institute entered the Grand Library, he was accidentally affected by the radiation from Life Bearer Mequik’s Principles, thus undergoing mutation 〗
〖 However, what kind of state is the Great Magus currently in? Already under Mequik’s total control, or currently in cooperation like I am? If it is the second one, I will need to consider the possibility of the Great Magus leaking information 〗
‘Negary’ swiftly calculated the various possibilities of the future and how he should deal with them. After doing so, ‘Negary’ finally opened the book he obtained from the Grand Library [The Origin of Life].
The book described the existence of a Deity called Mequik, and the knowledge of the origin of Life in the book was written through the personal observation of this Deity.
The name Mequik seemed to contain magic, as if it was a unique word with a singular meaning, anyone who heard this word would automatically understand the meaning it portrayed.
The mother body, or after undergoing rough translation, Life Bearer.
〖 The structures formed through the combination of the Laws of Reality and matter is life 〗
Muttering this conclusion written in the book, ‘Negary’ slowly understood the general pathway of Life Bearer.
She was only the carrier for all forms of life, or rather, their incubator. All forms of life were carried by her one by one, from which she comprehended the mysteries of life.
‘Negary’ stood up. The library was now opened, so he carefully put his book away and disappeared into the crowd. The security guard from the night before had vanished without a trace, so most likely ‘Negary’s’ hypnosis was exceptionally successful, and he had already run off to find Roger.
〖 Before, I simply wanted to help Roger a bit since I could, but now that I look again, this can probably be taken advantage of 〗weaving among the crowd of people, ‘Negary’ left the library without drawing any attention.
There was a Biology class scheduled at 10 AM today within the Mobis Institute. Since the Dean of this institute had been infected by Life Bearer, he could become food for ‘Negary’, allowing him to grow one step further.
〖 The Abnormality Elimination Squad, the Mobis Institute’s Dean, the Mystic Demonesses organization, the Mana Banquet 〗
Information regarding each of these matters quickly appeared through ‘Negary’s’ mind one after another, all of them with plenty of places for him to take advantage of.
‘Negary’ pulled on the collar of his shirt. A sleepless night, for this current human body, was still quite a burden, especially since drinking that serum took quite a bit out of him as well.
“Mister Negary, you’ve returned” right as ‘Negary’ entered a corridor, he saw the other auditing students.
The Demoness Nox was also among them, holding a small bag in both of her hands. Her lush blonde hair carried a faint fragrance and a light blush could be seen on her face. After noticing ‘Negary’s’ gaze, she lightly nodded to him with a faintly awkward smile, which easily roused the human heart.
“We’re about to go sign up for our classes, would you like to join us?” Nox asked him with a gentle tone.
〖 Naturally 〗’Negary’s’ gaze passed through, noticing traces of the ritual on all of their bodies. Whatever the ritual was meant for, it had begun to do its job.
