Chapter 24

"That[Skyview Academy]... you're not referring to that structure on top of the mountain in front of us, right?"

Standing at the exit of the forest, we looked towards the faraway city, and the tall mountain centered in the city.

Of course, and that structure which was defying the law of physics by floating above the peak of the mountain.

As to the reason why we're at the exit of a forest, of course it's because we had rushed too quickly, and we ended up charging into the forest.

Of course, with our superb nimbleness and dodging abilities, we decided to simply cut across the forest, after gauging the direction we should be headed to. Only when we charged out of the forest, and saw our target city, did we finally stop.

"Un, that should be the place. The name of that city is Skybreak City."

Ms. Mari said as she looked at her notebook.

As a teacher, you only had that little amount of work to do in this excursion, so couldn't you have remembered the names of the city?

"Skybreak City? That sure is an easily understood name... But no matter how I see it, there's a problem with that mountain, right? What's the deal with that structure floating in mid-air? And what's going on with those rocks that are near the mountain? Aren't they completely ignoring the laws of Physics?"

"Fir, have you not played games related to deity cultivation? In those games, aren't there rocks illogically floating in mid-air?"

"Un... Speaking of which, that's indeed the case, I see... But those people actually built their academy on a floating rock. This is basically too illogical."

"... Just how long are you going to frustrate over logic?"

"As a scientist, how can we not care about the logic of things? Geez... Well, it doesn't really matter anyway."

Once again, I looked at the city, before I continued to ask.

"Then what are we going to do here? Are we simply going to look around?"

"Theoretically, that's about it. Look around, interact, and learn from each other."

"Hey, hey, hey, by 'interacting', you mean a fight, right?"

"That's right."

"I'm really looking forward to it!"

"You... But, you have to know that, according to the schedule, we should be arriving in another three days, hence..."

"Hence, there's no one to welcome us, is that it?"

"Well, that's about it."

"Oh my... Alright. Bai Yueguang, Tai Shixi, and Hei Luoli? You three should be more familiar with the Eastern Continent than us, right? Do you know anywhere we can hang around nearby?"

"I have never been here before."

"I don't know."

"Hang around?"

These three sure synchronized their answers well.

"Alright, in any case, it's not a sound idea to simply stand here. Let's hurry and enter the city for now."

Looking helplessly at our current situation, that was the only thing that I could think of.

"Un. And to save our excursion fees, let's enter the academy directly and discuss with their principal about this matter."

"I did not expect that Ms. Mari would actually behave like an actual teacher in times like this."

"Obviously. The remaining portion of the excursion fees are coming from my salary this month, you know."

"......"

Return me my moved feelings.

Just kidding. I won't ever feel moved by someone like her.

Of course, the moment we were near the city, we saw those familiar city walls.

And this feeling of familiarity is not because I have been here before, rather, I have already seen structures like these with Chinese traits countless of times in games.

And I have seen such walls in reality as well. After all, I'm Asian. But, because my memories seemed to be jumbled up with Japanese and Chinese traits, I'm not entirely sure of the concrete details.

But, truthfully, I can't figure out at first glance if this Skybreak City is actually Chinese or Japanese styled. Because, in the city, there were people selling sushis, yet, there were many merchants selling talismans and candied fruits as well.

Alright, it seemed like there's not really a big difference between Chinese and Japanese cultures in the Eastern Continent. I wonder if it's due to the frequent trade around the area?

After all, the Western and Eastern Continents are separated by mountains and seas, however, the Eastern Continent here is unlike the East in our former world where Japan and China is separated by the seas.

"This sure is nostalgic."

Bai Yueguang said as he looked around.

"How long haven't we been back here?"

"Little Bai is simply thinking of eating sushis again, right?"

Hei Luoli laughed.

"Tch. Are you telling me you don't want to eat them as well?"

"I only want to eat some meatballs."

"In the end, we're still eating aren't we!?"

Alright, I shall leave you two to frustrate about what to eat. I, on the other hand, wish to see if there's any new skill books I can find here. After all, there's nothing wrong with supplementing myself with a few Eastern skills.

But...

I turned to look at the remaining people - Aliyah, Purewhite, Oyado and Lois.

The rest?

Tai Shixi and Ms. Mari had already went off to the academy. Bai Yueguang and Hei Luoli are probably going on a date or something, damn it.

"Anyway, I will first be heading off to look for books, you girls should..."

"Hah? Are you thinking of running?"

Aliyah held onto her waist and said.

"How is it alright to not have a man to protect the girls when they're shopping!? You best don't think of running off now!"

"......"

I'm totally not following them because of the sword in her hand!
