Magic System in a Parallel World – Chapter 17: Missing Package

Chapter 17: Missing Package

Chapter 17: Missing Package

After training by himself for another half an hour, Jasmine dismissed the class three hours earlier than normal.

“See you tomorrow, Leo.”

“Of course.”

Leo rushed to the training area after class. Even though Miss Camille wasn’t there yet, he decided to start training early.

“You’re more motivated than usual. Did being challenged so many times today affect you?” Lilith asked him.

“No, that has nothing to do with it. After watching the other students spar, I realized truly how weak I am compared to them. And it’s not just a difference in our strength. I wouldn’t have lasted even three seconds if I fought with them. I still have a lot of work to do.” Leo sighed.

“That’s only true if you’re using a sword. If you’re allowed to use magic, you’re already stronger than most of the people at training today.” Lilith said.

“Even if that is true, I cannot use magic until I am strong enough.” He sighed.

By the time Miss Camille arrived at the Training Center, Leo had already exhausted his stamina, so he started training with magic.

At the end of the day, Leo asked, “I have been swinging the sword aimlessly for many days now. When am I going to learn some sword techniques?”

“Just focus on your foundation for now and forget about the others. We will get there when we get there.” Miss Camille said.

And she continued, “Most things in this world require a foundation. If the foundation is weak, so is everything else after it.”

“Also, I am not qualified to teach you real swordsmanship. I will have to find you another teacher for that, preferably someone that doesn’t know the old Leo.”

“I understand.” Leo nodded.

Time passed quickly as Leo focused on his studies in the morning and training in the afternoon, and before he was aware, an entire week had passed.

During this time, his Black Bullet’s Mastery Rank increased to ‘D’, and his Dark Barrier increased to ‘E’.

Since he can only use magic that Miss Camille taught him, Leo was unable to practice with Black Flames at all.

Furthermore, his mana capacity has increased to 300, and his magic power reached over a thousand with only Tier 1 magic spells.

As for his training with the sword, he has finally managed to acquire enough strength to wield a 30kg sword with ease.

Although his swordsmanship cannot compare to his magic, it was still progressing faster than Miss Camille’s expectations.

Such growth wouldn’t have been possible in Leo’s old world, but with the assistance of magic potions and artifacts, it became a reality.

“Now that you have sufficient strength, we can start working on your sword techniques so that you can finally start fighting for real. Since it’s the weekend tomorrow, meet me here at nine.”

“Okay.”

After returning to the dorm, Leo went to find Hank, the dorm manager.

“Hey, it’s been a while since you mentioned my personal items, but I still haven’t received them.” Leo said to him.

“Huh? Really? Let me call them right now.”

Hank picked up the phone and dialed a number.

A few moments later, Hank explained the situation to the person on the other side of the phone.

“Leo, right? Let me check the database…”

“Here we go… Leo… Hm?”

“What happened?” Hank asked.

“It says here that Leo’s items had been delivered three days ago.”

“What?” Hank raised his eyebrows.

He turned to look at Leo and said, “They said the items have been delivered to you three days ago.”

“What? That’s impossible. Did they leave it in front of my door and mark it ‘delivered’? What if someone stole it?”

“Leo said that he didn’t receive his items.”

“Let me contact the person who delivered it.”

A few minutes later, the person called back and said, “The person who delivered the package said that he’d personally handed it to Leo.”

“Umm… Leo, are you sure you didn’t receive anything? The deliverer said that he’d handed it to you… personally.”

“That’s nonsense! I am rarely in my room nowadays, and when I return, I go straight to sleep! I have never received anything!” Leo exclaimed.

“You heard Leo.”

“Then I will have to open up an investigation. This could take weeks if not months.”

“I understand. I will let him know.”

After hanging up, Hank explained the situation to Leo.

“Unbelievable… I only wanted some extra clothes and uniforms. And if you don’t believe me, you can check my room. It’s empty in there except for the clothes you gave me.”

“No need, I believe you.” Hank shook his head.

“However, since we don’t know what happened to your package, we can only wait for them to finish the investigation.”

“What was inside my items, anyway? Since someone went out of their way to steal it, there must’ve been something valuable inside.”

“As far as I am aware, artifacts and valuables are given to the academy once their owner is officially dead, so besides clothes and miscellaneous items, it is highly unlikely that your package had anything valuable.” Hank said.

“Why in the world would anybody steal my clothes? That’s utterly ridiculous!”

“Well… If you really want some new clothes, you can just ask the academy. The uniforms are free. And since you’re famous, the academy might even give you some money to buy more clothes.”

“Where do I go to get these free uniforms?”

Hank pointed at the large map on the wall and said, “That’s a map of the academy. Find the Administration Hall and order your uniforms there.”

Leo looked at the map intensively for a couple of moments, memorizing the map and all of its details.

“All right, I know where to go. Thank you for your help.” Leo left the dorm shortly after to order some uniforms at the Administration Hall.

Once there, Leo spoke to one of the workers there for help.

Fortunately, since Leo’s information was still in the academy’s database, they were able to give him four sets of uniforms on the spot.

“Anything else I can help you with?”

“Well… To tell you the truth, all of my clothes have been stolen recently, so besides these uniforms, I don’t have anything else to wear— not even pajamas. Fortunately, I was told that I could receive some financial help here.”

“I see… Actually, while we do give financial help to our students, you probably won’t be needing that.”

“Huh? Why not? I have no money right now.”

“You see, when you died, the academy had seized all of your wealth— which is a normal practice by the way. However, since you didn’t actually die, you can naturally take back what originally belonged to you, and this includes your artifacts and whatnot.”

“I’m pretty sure the academy is already in the process of doing so since you’re popular. Would you like me to check?”

“Please!” Leo answered, his voice filled with anticipation.

“All right, give me a moment…”

The worker proceeded to type some stuff in his computer.

A few moments later, he spoke, “So the academy has already returned all of your money. However, your artifacts will require a little longer due to some complications.”

“I see… So how do I access my money?”

“The academy has its own banking system that is used by most of its students. According to your information, your money is also in this bank. In order to access it, you just need to visit the bank. However, it’s already closed for the day, so you’ll have to go tomorrow when it opens at 7 in the morning.”

“I understand. Thank you for taking the time to help me.”

Leo returned to his room shortly after.

“Man, I cannot wait to visit the bank tomorrow! Since the old Leo was very strong, he should have plenty of money!” Leo entered the bed filled with excitement for tomorrow.

“I wouldn’t count too much on it…” Lilith suddenly said.

“Huh? What makes you say that?”

“While it’s true that the old Leo was very wealthy from hunting monsters and vampires, he would use most of his wealth to improve himself, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there isn’t much money left.”

“Truly wealthy people won’t be broke no matter how much money they spend!”

Lilith chuckled, “You’d be surprised at how easy it is to spend all of your money on artifacts. Even E-Rank artifacts can easily cost up to six digits.”

“I get it, so stop ruining my excitement. We’ll just have to see for ourselves tomorrow if I can afford new clothes with the old Leo’s money.”

Leo went to sleep shortly after.

The following morning, Leo left the dorm and headed to the bank fifteen minutes before they even opened.
