Previous Thread: >>3196368Your master, Vivi D'Roix, had just completed her third day at the academy, when searching for something to please your mistresses hidden pleasures, upon finding what she needed, you were found by Master Vuglni from the blacksmithing club, where he handed you a catalog with several classes that your mistress would have to be required to take during her time at the academy. You went on a garden tour, with Vivi and her new friends, there were many beautiful things in the garden. Something that caught your Mistresses’ attention was a “magical” creature known as a Murtlap, an aquatic creature closely resembling a rat with spines on their backs. You promised to catch her one later today, so that she may play with it. After the garden tour, the two of you got lost in the garden but stumbled upon a strange house in the middle of the garden, which you later learned was called “Portal of the Lost”. Mercedes did not have much information on the subject but suggested you visit the Occult Club and ask them when you have the time. You learned more about keys and learned how to enhance your hearing, but also to transform into different people, for various amounts of times depending on the person. After sending Vivi to sleep, you visited the roof to reflect on your past and your current situation. While you were reflecting the Headmaster of the Academy came up alongside you and gave you inspirational words on finding your own individuality: “To gain individuality is to learn oneself without being tied to what others think, is the greatest accomplishment one can hope to achieve.” He has also given you the opportunity to choose 1 course from the catalog that you would be interested in taking, probably one that your mistress is not taking as well but leaving the decision up to you. Before leaving he asked you, “if YOU are enjoying your time at the academy”.>Solomom’s: Skills(w/description), Learning, & RelationShip Statuses: https://pastebin.com/maSD9kc2> [Vivi D’Roix Schedule Wednesday][Breakfast @7: 00 AM][Academics @8:00AM-> 1:00 PM] (Classes will be picked during class)[Lunch Break 1:00PM-> 2:00 PM][Independent Study Time (No PE) 2:00-> 4:00 PM][Free Time Rest of day]> [Vivi D’Roix Schedule Thursday][Breakfast @7:00AM][Academics @8:00AM->1:00PM][Lunch Break 1:00PM->2:00PM][Extracurriculars Class 1 2:10->3:30][Break 3:30->3:45][Extra Curricular Class 2 3:50->4:20][Free Time Rest of Day]
Date/Time: Wednesday 6:00AM Rest came quickly after your talk with the Headmaster, but you were awoken from someone singing from the room next to you. Your enhanced hearing seeming to be still in effect, you suspect the more you use the enhancement the more used to your resistance to loud noises will be. Getting up from your bed you look outside of the window and notice the sun coming up from the horizon, with a quick glance at your pocket watch you see that the current time is 6:00 AM, and its best to get yourself in an organized fashion to prepare to serve your mistress, not knowing what will happen today.Opening your closet, you decide to wear the normal black suit/black plants that you normally wear when serving your mistress, also because it’s the only choice of clothing you seem to own in your closet other than a plain white-T that you sleep in.Looking at the current time you leave your quarters, and go towards Vivi’s dormitory, hoping that she woke up on time. Arriving at her room door you knock, not hearing anything you sigh and use your spare key to enter her room. She is laying in the bed nude, thankfully the sheets are covering her more private assets.“Mistress it’s time to wake up,” you say.“5 more minutes Saul,” Vivi still asleep in her bed.Having none of that you walk over to her bed, making sure the blanket stays covering herself, as you shake her awake.“…Saul, what time is it?” Vivi says as she groggily awakens from her bed, noticing the sunshine peeking from her window.“It’s half past six and it’s time for you to wake up,” you say. “I don’t want to,” Vivi quickly retorts back.“I won’t catch that Murtlap that we saw in the garden in yesterday, that you wanted to play with,” you say, bribing her to get up and get ready for classes.In an instant, Vivi is awake and getting ready for class as she rushes with her bedsheets in hand, for a quick bath. It seemed that the excitement of a new creature to stab increased her energy for the day you thought.You help her get dressed and are out the door by 6:50.“Do you want to go pick up Mercedes to introduce her to everyone else at the breakfast table Saul?” or just go straight to the eating area? Vivi asks.>Go ask Mercedes if she wishes to join Vivi and friends for Breakfast.>Go straight to the dining tables to eat.
>>3228382>Go ask Mercedes if she wishes to join Vivi and friends for Breakfast.
>>3228388>>3228566>>3229157>>3229284>Go ask Mercedes if she wishes to join Vivi and friends for Breakfast“I’ll go see if Mercedes would like to join you and your friends for breakfast,” you say.Leaving Vivi as she walks towards the dining area, you move to Mercedes dormitory, to see if she is still inside. As you walk in front of her door, you can hear her talking to herself from inside.“I think today I’ll eat pancakes and eggs. Then after that I’ll see if Vivi will want to hang out later without Saul, maybe show her some girl stuff hmmm…” you hear Mercedes say.You take a moment to pause, before knocking on the door.Mercedes looks through the peephole.“Hello Saul, what do I owe the pleasure of you visiting me so early?” she says.“Vivi would like to invite you to breakfast to eat with some of her friends, maybe a chance to invite her to do…girl stuff after class is over,” you say being sure to emphasize on the last bit to let her know you were listening in.”“Oh, looks that someone is putting their enhanced hearing to work. What is this about Vivi wanting me to eat with her friends?” Mercedes says smirking at your ears.“She wants to eat breakfast with you, and also wants to introduce you to her friends, you may get along. You will be meeting with a sickly-looking boy named Charles who is the prime minister’s son Vivi is very fond of him especially smothering him in her bosoms, and another girl named Caren who comes from a small baronetcy, her hobbies include alchemy” you say.“I’ll come along, give me a moment to finish something inside and I’ll join you for breakfast. Has Vivi picked her classes yet? We choose today during our academic lessons,” she says.“She has not, but I’ve asked her to take a nobility etiquette class, her father wants her to be more “ladylike” and has tasked me with that job during her stay here. He is my boss’s boss, so what he says carries heavy weight,” you say.“Nobility Etiquette, normally I would not suggest she take that class, but I’m just saying that because I’m never grew up with that type of lifestyle, but it might prove beneficial for her and your future…Look at you sweetie~ looking out for your mistress,” she says trying to tease you.“Well I do look forward to having a future…and a head for that matter,” you say back quickly.“I’ll see what I can do to help you,” she responds.>[1/2]
Mercedes laughs and steps back into her room to change clothes.After a few minutes, Mercedes opens the door, wearing nice clothes, and some earrings, clearly trying to dress properly and to impress Vivi’s friends and not wanting to embarrass Vivi with dressing more as a “commoner” would.As the two of you walking into the dining area, you notice Vivi sitting with Caren, eating pancakes. Charles seems to be missing from the table.“Hello Miss Caren, may I introduce you to Miss Mercedes, one of my Mistresses’ friends she’ll be joining us this morning,” you say.“Oh Hi, Mercedes, it’s a pleasure to meet you, Vivi was just telling me about you.”Caren offers Mercedes a handshake, which she accepts. The two of you sit down, sitting in between Mercedes and Vivi.“Where is Master Charles,” you ask?“I think Charles is being kept in his room, and his maid Rena is trying to talk him out of taking [Digging Holes] when I spoke with him last night, he seemed very adamant over choosing the course over Alchemy, seems like a dumb class to me,” Caren says.“Solomon tells me that you like alchemy Caren, what kind of things in alchemy are you interested in?” Mercedes asks.“I like to study the research over curing people’s ailments through alchemy, as well as magical properties found in animals or objects, that may prove useful in brewing. I hope to brew new types of potions that will be beneficial to many people,” she says.“Oh, wow brewing potions through, the use of magical properties! I’m a bit of a "magic-wiz" myself, tell me what you have done so far with some of the magical properties you found in animals, Mercedes asks.The conversation quickly dissolves into an intellectual discussion, about how the properties of certain magical animals can be used to solve or help certain health problems with the sick.Looking to your right you see Vivi trying to get a word in, but looks nervous to say something dumb, in the conversation, or something that may not seem interesting enough to deter them away from their talk.>Tell Vivi(secretly) to tell them about something from the past that is related to magic.

>>3229459>Excuse yourself saying something along the lines of "If you may excuse my leaving, an opportunity has presented itself". Finding Charles room should be possible seeing as every one has left for breakfast and you have advanced hearing. Then either loudly say Vivi will be taking alchemy and bolt, or bee bold and knock and request Charles attendance at the breakfast table, possibly denounce digging holes or praise alchemy and generally have balls of steel.Now this might be slightly out of character for Saul, but he is driven by making/keeping his mistress happy. And if everything goes golden (as in nat 100) we will gain favor in Renas eyes. The action will also somewhat reproduce the >Embarrass yourself action.
>>3229459>Mention that their pancakes are getting cold,>Tell vivi that she is free to ask questions. They won't belittle her and will answer in the same manner that she answers our questions when she kills woodland creatures.

She looks up and notices the conversation had ceased, and she is able to say something.“Caren,” Vivi says speaking up from her plate.“Do you have any other hobbies besides, alchemy?” (87)“Well a few more of my hobbies are a bit more girly, such as dressing up in different clothes, tea parties, and doing exercise,” Caren says.“Ohhhh Tea Parties? I was thinking of having a tea party soon, would you like to join if I do?” Vivi saysQuickly noticing where the conversation was going you put down your head as to not draw attention to yourself.“I would be absolutely delighted to have a tea party with you Vivi, we can invite Mercedes as well, it will be lovely!” Caren says.“I think it will be a grand time,” Mercedes says trying not to chuckle at Solomon trying to focus on eating his pancakes.“By the way, I was thinking of having some girl time later today, if you would be interested in spending time together after classes today,” Mercedes says offering an invitation to Caren and Vivi.“I would love to,” says Vivi and Caren.Caren gets up from the table.“Its about time that we head off to class, we’ll be picking our classes, today. Let’s go girls” she says. Vivi and Caren begin to walk away together to class. Mercedes looks over to you.“I’ll talk to her about taking nobility etiquette, but no promises,” Mercedes says.“Thank you,” you respond.[1/2]
Going to leave this vote open until I come back from work today.

>>3232396>>3232405>>3232518>111(Un-Natural Crit!)The students gather in class and the homeroom teacher begins to speak, “Today you will be choosing your extracurricular classes that you will be taking for the remainder of the semester, and if you choose so, the remainder of your stay here at Uramel Academy.” In front of you is a form with the classes, please only check 1 of the classes if you only wish to take one extracurricular course. As a professor who used to be a student here, I recommend choosing something that you think you will enjoy, but as well as something that you think will benefit you in the future.Mercedes whispers to Vivi, “I think you should take nobility class, I don’t know about your situation at home, but I think it would be important for you to take it, I’m only saying it as your friend.”“You sound like Saul, did he put you up to this?” Vivi says.“No, he didn’t, but what I do know is that Saul wanted you to take the class, you’ve known Saul for a longer period of time than me, so he probably wants you to take the class because it affects him as well at home,” Mercedes says.“…I’ll take Nobility Etiquette, but not for Saul. I’ll take it because I have to and my father would be happier if I learn to become more ladylike, maybe he will let me keep my knives when I return,” Vivi says. (111)“Knives?” Mercedes asks.“…Oh well you know being the royal executioner’s daughter, I see some of my fathers work, and when I was little, I grew an affinity towards weapons…” Vivi says shyly before looking the other way, knowing that Mercedes may take it the wrong way until Mercedes hugs her that is.“That’s ok, Vivi to like weapons and being interested in your father’s work. I knew that you and Saul were a little different from the other nobles and it makes me like you more now that you have told me that.” Mercedes says, after letting go of Vivi. “What is your second choice going to be?” (111)Recovering from Mercedes’s very kind gesture, “I think I want to take field studies as my secondary course, I want to take it because Charles said that he was going to take the course, and I absolutely adore him, but also because learning how to track wildlife and the possibility of hunting animals excites me,” Vivi says.“Good choices,” Mercedes responds back.>[1/2]
Waving goodbye to Vivi & her friends as they leave for their academic classes you are left alone in the dining hall as you watch faceless faces file out of the room, towards their respective classes. You ponder on what to do with your time alone.

>Go catch the Murtlap that Vivi wanted to play with Date/Time: Wednesday 8:10 AM You decide that is probably best to go see if you can catch that Murtlap that Vivi wanted to play with, maybe something she can do after her “girl time”, with Mercedes and Caren. You walk outside leaving the academy door and make your ways towards the garden. As you are walking to the garden you recall the size of the Murtlap being much larger than a normal sized rat, which means the teeth that they have could be dangerous as well, so you must take caution when trying to knock it out, to take your mistress’s dormitory.Entering the garden, you still take a moment to marvel at the bright vibrant colors that were within. The Goddess of the Earth statue still looking as beautiful as the last time you saw it…which was yesterday. There are some people working on the statue gathering some of the shrubs and vegetation for use later most likely. Following the blue-colored cobblestone path, you quickly find where the group found the Murtlaps. The lake has several mossy rocks, cattails, branches, and an abandoned fishing rod nearby.Taking a glance around the lake you see some Murtlaps that are huddled together in a group, lazing on some mossy rocks by the bank of the lake, you are unable to tell if they are sleeping or not, from your current position. There is also a Murtlap by itself, but it seems to be larger than the others, it is wading through the water. Your ears did pick up on someone whistling, in the distance, it's faint. How should you approach this, you only need one Murtlap.>Try fishing one out?

>Walk toward the whistlingYou decide that is best to try to find out where the whistling was coming from, better to not get caught in the act of catching a Murtlap or at least trying not to and having to explain why you were there in the first place. You step off the blue colored cobblestone pathway, over several hedges, and into what seemed to be a small cluster of trees. As you follow the sound of whistling, the closer you got the louder the whistling was until you hear a male voice singing. Fishin’ is what I do! Huntin’ is what I do! Trackin’ is what I do! Eatin’ is what I do-oo-oo! You approach a small clearing of trees and can smell smoke from a fire, and something that that smells good. As you walk up to the edge of the tree line you step on a stick breaking your stealth of whoever you were approaching.“Who goes there, speak now or I assume you are an animal, looking to be my lunch,” the cautious voice says.You step into the small clearing.“I didn’t mean to sneak up on you,” you quickly say with your hands up.“Oh, it’s just someone’s servant, I didn’t expect anyone to come out far out here during my early catch breakfast,” the man says correctly guessing your occupation based on how you are currently dressed.The man is about 6 feet, with a muscular upper body. He is wearing a green tunic, along with brown colored pants that only go up to his knees. On his hip, there is a beige colored fishing hat with several charms of fish sewn into the side of the hat. He is wearing big brown boots as well that appears to be drying off from something else earlier, but what truly draws your attention is that rather having ears on the side of his head, the man has large fuzzy bear ears upon the crown of his head instead. A Beastskin. The man pauses for a moment and stares at you almost as if he is was trying to understand something about you from your physique. You look behind him and see that he is currently cooking one of the Murtlaps from the lake on a stick over a fire.“How did you know that I was here?” he asks.“I heard you whistling, from over by the lake, and wanted to come to check where it was coming from,” you say.“You heard me from the lake…your ears must be pretty good then, for a human?” he asks.You smile and say, “I get that a lot.”“So, if I may ask kid, what are you doing out here in the woods?" Shouldn’t you be serving your master or whatever?” the man questions.>My mistress came to the garden yesterday and was craving to eat one of the Murtlaps.

>>3234856If caught being evasive, we can say that it was actually our mistress who was interested in them, but feared for image if she was seen catching and studying them in public, so here we are, catching one as a surprise for her so she can study one in private.

>>3234803>>3234856>>3235155>>3235165[Writing] ٩( ᐛ )و Cause I don't sleep sometimes!
>>3234803>>3234856>>3235155>>3235165 “My mistress is currently in class right now, we were walking through this garden yesterday on a tour with another person, and he introduced us to the Murtlaps by the lake. My Mistresses tastes are rather exotic…so to speak. She would want to attempt catch one herself but was afraid of how her peers would view her in public, so I was given the task to retrieve one instead,” you say trying to be honest with the bear man, for some reason lying to him did not seem like a good idea at the time.The man looks at you once more staring up and down and doesn’t say anything for a moment. “It doesn’t seem that you are lying to me, you looked somewhat suspicious at a first glance, but I can see that you are an honest kid. Tell me, how you would have captured one of those Murtlaps on your own?” he asks.You place your hand on your chin, and say, “I would have most likely attempted to stealthily grab one of the Murtlaps that were resting in a group, without waking it up, and try to keep the animal knocked out."The man looks at you with a deadpanned face expression, much like the ones you do with Vivi to joke around with her.“Are you serious? Are you looking to have a flamin’ arse?” he says.The man puts out his fire and grabs the now cooked Murtlap, carrying it over to where you were standing.“Listen, Kid, I don’t know how much you know about magical creatures, but some can send you to the infirmary for a week.”The man points at the Murtlap in his hands. “These nasty critters if they bite ya, will send ya to the king’s throne, for several hours with magic flames coming out of your arse’. I’m pretty sure you don’t want that? Huh?"You shake your head to the bear-man, clearly more knowledgeable over the Murtlaps than you are, having flames shoot out of your behind did not seem pleasant, not pleasant for anyone you thought.“Come with me kid, I’ll show you how to catch one of these,” he says as he moves back towards the direction of the lake.>[1/2]
You follow the man back towards the lake, noticing the way he walks back through the small clusters of trees and over the hedges, his movements are practiced and professional, not stepping on any branches or leaves that could crack or crunch at the large weight of his body.“Safest way is to fish a Murtlap out of the water, there are several other creatures in the lake, but we will be using bait that Murtlap will most likely latch on to,” the bear man says.The man stretches out his hand and reaches into a round swirling purple portal that appears out of thin air, the size of the portal is about 1 foot long across. The man pulls out a bucket with the words rat bait written on it, as well as a fishing rod similar to the one laying nearby.You stare bewildered as the man pulls out several more objects out of the swirling portal such as, two reclinable chairs, as well as a small umbrella that can be staked into the ground. The man looks at your bewildered expression as he finishes pulling out objects from the portal, for it to seemingly disappear as if it was never there.“What are you looking at kid? Make those arms and legs useful and help me set up by the lake. You look like you’ve never seen Ancient Magic before.You help the man set up the reclinable chairs as well as stake the umbrella into the ground.“Take off the shirt kid, you must be sweating under that thing,” the man gestures to your current attire.“There is nothing else underneath,” you tell him.The man looks at you then grunts, and hands you the fishing pole, “I don’t suppose you know the basics of fishing, do you?You shake your head…The man then starts lecturing you over the basics of fishing, such as the correct weight to be using, fish hook sizes, and how to cast your line and reel it back in when you have a bite. You suspect the man being the professor for Field Studies due to his knowledge of the over animals, as well as knowing how to fish.“Let’s begin, shall we? You can catch your Murtlap for your mistress, but if you can reel in one before me, I’ll give you a prize for beginners lucks, even though it doesn’t exist," the bear-man says confidently as the two of you begin to cast your rods.>Roll 1d100Also, ask the man 2 questions.>Who are you, what do you do here?>What was that swirly portal thing??>What other types of magical creatures are in this garden?>Write-in Something else?

>>3235284>>3235339>>3235405>>3235543>>3235724>>What was that swirly portal thing??>>Who are you, what do you do here?You cast your line and sit down next to the bear man in your own chair. For some reason, you feel at ease at the current events that have passed by so far, even though he is a total stranger. You can tell he has good intentions. Time passes by as the two of you sit in silence, you could hear birds nearby chirping, and the Murtlaps on the rocks making odd screeching sounds, it's peaceful. You turn to the man and ask him, “What is it that you do here, Sir-“ you pause realizing you’ve never asked for the man’s name.“Fredrick. Not SIR Fedrick, it’s Dr. Fedrick” he replies sternly. “I teach Field Studies here at Uramel Academy, but you probably already guessed that. I teach the kids who go here about huntin’, trackin, identifying certain plants. Also, I teach them how to survive out in the world in case something was to happen to them, that may mess with their way of living.You see kid, most of the students who come to Uramel Academy are nobles, who are growing up in an enclosed or luxurious house, and don’t know anything besides what is taught for nobles. I hope to broaden their sense of the world and have them see outside, their sheltered view of the world. Also, it’s helpful for them to learn how to live without their servants to attend their every need…and hunt for themselves,” directing the end of his speech towards you.You nod and take in what the Doctor says, knowing how life can be tough outside of sheltered space, and that you were just fortunate that you have a mistress like Vivi.>[1/2]
>94 The two of you sit in silence for a while still waiting for a bite, when your fishing rod starts to bend hard. “Ya, got a bite kid, let’s see if you can reel it in,” Fredrick says.You get up from your chair and take what would you consider a good stance to grab the fishing, in preparation to fight off the fish that was on your hook. Remembering the basics that Fredrick instructed you from earlier. The fish swam to the right, you pulled hard to the left, the fish tried to swim closer to you, and you gave the rod some slack, before pulling and reeling on the line as hard as you could. PLOP The fish came out of the water, you expected the fish to come out to be a Murtlap, but instead of a Murtlap, a big fish with a circular mouth & whiskers on its face came out instead. As the fish landed on the ground, it threw up a Murtlap that weakly walked out of its mouth, before falling unconscious on the ground beside the fish with whiskers that were flopping on the floor. (94)“Well I’ll be damned, you snagged a catfish with a Murtlap in its trap, can’t say I have seen that before,” the man says before slapping you on the back nearly knocking you on your knees.Fredrick outstretches his hand once more into the air and pulls out some rope and a small muzzle, from thin air.“I’ll tie up the Murtlap’s trap, so it won’t go biting you or someone else when you start cooking it later, they are better when they are fresh from the stove, I’m throwing the catfish back in the lake, they help reduce the population,” Fredrick says.As you recover from the man's hearty slap to your back, you ask, “What was that swirly portal thing? I’ve never seen magic like that.”“That would be one of my ancient magics kid, I call it [Item Box]. You asking me like that means that you don’t know what it could be,” Fredrick looks at you with one of his eyebrows raised.“Ancient magic is magic that doesn’t belong to the six main elements of magic and allows you to do certain things depending on what type of ancient magic it is. My [item box] allows me to retrieve items that I place within, at any given time, an important thing for people in my field of work. I ain’t going to give you a big lecture, on everything about it, that’s for the professor of [Magical Studies] to do. She would probably explain it much better than me.Fredrick once again outstretches his hand and pulls out a thick book out of the [item box], handing it to you. The book is titled Fishing Holes . “That book is about fishing holes, I read some of it, but not all of it bought it off some passing merchant.”>Fishing Hole Book Obtained!>Unconscious Murtlap Obtained!
I should get going kid, looking at the sun, I’d say it's about half-past 12, and the students are all about to leave from their academic-oriented courses,” Fredrick says placing all his things back in his [item box].Vivi is almost getting out of classes soon, and most likely will want to see you when she's out, but for some reason, the thick book in your hand looks mildly interesting.>Go back to Vivi’s dormitory.>Peek at your book, before rushing to drop the Murtlap off.>Write-inSorry about my lateness anons, I was trying to force myself to type this but was falling asleep to being exhausted from earlier things, and I don't want to put out something that I believe to be poor or incorrect filled with grammatical errors that are not intentional.

You make sure that the Murtlap is securely tied up in a box of where it won’t be able to escape from, in case it may wake up later. After placing away the creature and setting your book on Vivi’s bed, you walk over to where her classes are likely being held, as they are about to end, you wish to hear what classes she will be taking as her extracurricular classes, at the door you see Rena smoking a cigarette.“Are you alright?” you ask“Positively dandy, Master Charles is probably ignored my advice, and took [digging holes] as a course, not even sure why that dumb class is on the curriculum, if he took that course I’m dragging him to his room to write a letter to his father about how his poor choices,” she says with a scowl on her face.You hear the bell of Academy ring, signifying that classes are over, the students are filing out of the room and you see your mistress speaking with Caren & Mercedes, they seem to be getting along.“How were classes?” you ask the three girls.“Classes were fine, I picked Alchemy of course,” says Caren.“My classes were already pre-chosen since I’m a TA,” says Mercedes.You look over to Vivi who just seems to be smiling between you and Mercedes.“I considered your feeling Saul, and everything you do for me, so I picked [Nobility Etiquette]. I wouldn’t want father to get made over you for me not being able to act ladylike especially at the table. I also picked Field studies as my secondary course, I think it’ll be fun also I get to coddle Charles in class,” she says.“I’m glad that you picked nobility etiquette it gives me so much relief on my shoulders that you will be taught the etiquette that you’ll need around your father and other certain people. By the way where is Master Charles?”The group turns their heads to see Charles being dragged off by Rena, with his head down, knowing that his father will be upset over his choices.
“It must be tough being the prime minister’s son, but its lunch time, and its best that you all eat before, your girl-time,” you say.“Actually, we’re going to go have it right now, I’ll ask someone to come to find you when we’re done,” Vivi says.“I hope you have a good time then, I’ll have a surprise waiting for you when you return” you respond.Vivi grins happily, knowing as to what you are speaking off. The three girls leave to go do their things, leaving you alone in the empty hallway once more. What do you do?>Visit the Occult club, as they are probably out of classes now?

We mght get wind of some more rumors while doing so. Then we can learn something new the next keys session.Checking out the Occult club is something we need to do with at least Vivi and Mercedes. Vivi to give more detail as to what happened when she touched the door (and also to back Saul up that they did see it) and Merc to introduce her to any rebellious noble boys who have joined the club against their brother's wishes.

>>3240091>>3240102>>3240396>85While the girls have some time to themselves you decide to do something resourceful and go work on [Intermediate Hearing]. You walk to your room where your notes are held inside. So far being able to hear more than you previously could before, has made you really interested in learning the next level of what you will be able to use it for. You can faintly hear the girl from the room next to you singing a song, but it’s hard to make out, but you can tell she is singing if you try to listen hard enough.Putting your mind to work you start to earnestly look at your notes of the keys and strokes for [Intermediate Hearing], you reference with what you wrote, from the previous session and copy the stroke order of the key. After you finish copying the key over and over again on several sheets of paper you practice the key without copying, but doing it from memory. After practicing in that fashion for a bit, you decide to take a break and not look at your notes for intermediate hearing, before trying again to do it from memory to test yourself that you really know it. (85)You lay on your bed and start talking to yourself about Vivi.“She is doing really good for herself since coming here, she now as a small group of friends who I think she feels comfortable around with, I just hope that she doesn’t reveal herself too soon. I would like them to spend more time together before she tells them that she likes things such as knives, weapons, her dungeon…or stabbing.""If things keep going as is, her time at the academy will be more beneficial for her future, but I worry how she will act outside her comfort zone, I'll have to help guide her in those situations."Getting up from your thoughts you move back to your notes and are able to confirm that you are familiar with [Intermediate Hearing].>[Intermediate Hearing] Learned![1/2]
To test out what you have just learned, you grab one of the ink vials that Mercedes gave you and start applying the key below where the basic enhancement is, on application, the basic enhancement key fades away as you finish applying the intermediate key. Just like last time you go deaf for a moment before gaining clarity in your ears once more, but this time it was different and [blue] beautiful. [/blue]You can hear the girl from the next room much more clearly now. She is still singing.[blue] It's bound to come true, one nightShe's longing for loveShe’s longing for the oneShe’s waiting for her princeTo come [/blue]In addition to your new heightened sense of sound, you can hear some tidbits of conversation from outside as well. As well as some birds that are chirping outside. “I hope the Professor lets us eat during Digging Holes class, I feel like I will get hungry from learning how to dig holes.”Magic is amazing, with what it can do.

Saul's not going to get a glimpse.If Saul wants to sneakily figure out who it is then the best bet might be to keep an ear out for when the singing ends, and then hang around by the door to see if the singer exits after she's done.
>>3240616>>3240581The doors are solid wood, you would have to wait outside or knock on the door to see who the girl is. Can't peek, cause that's almost like breaking and entering into someone's room & it's probably locked. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

>Go walk the halls and find out what you can hear.>98You decide to walk outside of your room and walk down the hallways to see what you can hear others say, mostly to test out your better hearing, but also if you can pick up on any gossip going on around the academy. * “Did you hear? The Viscount’s son is a part of Occult Club! Figures, he also wears black. *”* I signed up for magical studies, I’m going to learn so much I’m so excited! ** Don’t tell anyone, but I heard from the scrawny dude from down the hall who heard from the Amazonian girl that Prince Roland was seen walking into the Occult Club Room today! * * Most of the club meetings are tomorrow ** Have you seen the D’Roix’s servant walking around by himself? I wonder what he does when his mistress isn’t around. Probably nothing sits in his room all day stares out the window. ** I’m ready to go the Blue Moon Inn, I must talk to the information broker about that dungeon that dungeon that was found on the east side of the town ** I heard that dinner today is going to be lamb with spaghetti again ** I picked the random class option on the sheet today, I hope I don’t get digging holes, but the probability of something being random excites me. ** Finally my spear came in the mail! ** My brother is stupid Czesara, even if he's the eldest his thoughts are childish, let's go take a walk around the courtyard. ** That D’Roix girl seems to have made friends with the commoner, but also another girl who I forgot the name of. Odd Group * >[1/2]
As you pace down the hallway you are in a trance over the many conversations that you hear. Some that could be useful for later, others not so much, you try to tune out the voices that don’t seem important. (98)As you walk into the dining hall you notice the staff eating together, and conversing during the break. It’s hard to pick up on what they are hearing as your ears are picking up on multiple conversations at once, and it’s a cause you to clasp your ear, as you walk back outside. You must remember that since your ears are now more sensitive to sound, some noises can muddle other noises that you are trying to hear. With continuous practice, you think you will be able to get used to your heightened senses, as well as being able to naturally mute out other sounds. (98)You walk back to your room and look at the current time stating 3:10 PM. It seems that the Prince and Viscount might be a part of the occult club, maybe taking a visit there would prove to be beneficial for Vivi’s future. You look towards the wall and don’t hear anything from the other room, the girl that lives there probably already left. As you sit down on your bed, the headmaster's card falls out of your pocket. You remember that you must meet him later to choose what class you would want to take if any at all, but not taking the chance to take a class at the academy would be a poor choice most likely. Vivi hasn’t called for you yet, so you wonder what you do in the meantime.>Visit the Occult Club>Read Fishing Holes>Find something to do around the school>Look for Vivi>Stare outside the window (Time Skip)>Lay down and nap (Time Skip)>Write-in

>>3242866>>3242833Changing vote to>Visit the occult club. Because on second thought books are boring, and we haven't met Viscount or Roland once during this quest. Obvs don't let on the Roland that we know his identity if he's in costume or whatever, he probably won't appreciate it.

>>3242833Voting for >Visit the occult clubSince the rumors Roland has been seen are out, all the ladies are gonna be swarming. Saul might as well introduce himself now (maybe pretend he's interested in black magic?) and set up a time for Vivi and Mercedes to visit later (so Vivi can tell them about what she experienced with the house). Maybe start off with the black magic opener, then ever so casually mention the strange house he and his mistress found in the garden? Otherwise Vivi and Mercedes are gonna be mistaken for fan girls and either shooed away or avoided.
>>3242833>Visit the occult club
>>3242833>>Visit the Occult clubWe don't know how much credence the Roland rumour will get, but just to be on the safe side Saul should meet with the club ASAP and set up a meeting between them and Vivi and friends.Supporting the conversations proposed by >>3242958 - Saul should be ever so coy when he brings up the house, insisting that his Mistress would be the best one to describe what happened, seeing as she touched the doorknob and was exposed to its ~mystic energies~If they everything out of him then there's no point of even meeting the girls.
Hey y'all update will be somewhere between 9-11PM EST. I have a Tea Ceremony class, and it's a long class, hoping it gets cut early today. Voting is still open but looks like it will be visiting the Occult Club. ( ᐛ )و

>Visit the Occult Club>Saul might as well introduce himself now (maybe pretend he's interested in black magic?) and set up a time for Vivi and Mercedes to visit later (so Vivi can tell them about what she experienced with the house). Maybe start off with the black magic opener, then ever so casually mention the strange house he and his mistress found in the garden?You pull out the sheet advertising the occult club and decide to give them a visit. Walking outside your room you quickly navigate the halls to where the location of the club room is as indicated by the advertisement. You knock on the door and a boy of average stature wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, with a dark skin tone, hazel eyes, and short black hair greets you at the door.“Hello, what can I do for you?” the boy asks seeming uninterested in your presence.“I’m looking for Marcie, on this flyer it says to ask for her,” you respond showing where the flier indicates to ask for Marcie when coming to the room.“Your D’Roix’s servant right? Come inside,” he responds.You nod your head as you enter the occult club room, wondering what it would look like inside. Upon entering you find it a fairly normal club room, some cabinets holding some vials, a table with some food and papers on top, also some long couches, to rest and sit on. A normal room.“Would you like some tea, while we wait? She’s gone with our other club member to fetch some papers, from the club registry,” he says offering.“Yes, tea would be fine,” you say.The two of you are now sitting down at the table drinking chamomile tea it has a warm sweet taste as you drink into it.“Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Hiren Haurchefant I’m the viscount’s son also a second year here at Uramel Academy, but I must ask that while you are in this room, to not use formalities as the President of the club doesn’t like them being used in the room, no matter their ranking in society,” he says sternly.“Now then, may you introduce yourself?” he asks.“It’s a pleasure to meet you, my name is Solomon, my mistress calls me Saul, I was given the advertisement by her and found myself somewhat interested in the club and of what you do here,” you say.“Did you come here on her request?” Hiren asks still seeming uninterested in the conversation.“No, I came here on my own she busy with her friends…and I was feeling somewhat bored with nothing to do, also I have an interest in magic so I thought I would pay a visit to your club room,” you say.[1/3]
The door opens up, two people come into the room, one you assume is Prince Roland who much like his brother has short blond hair, blue eyes, and is also of average stature. What piques your interest is the girl standing next to Roland.The girl is a Rara. She appears to be about 90cm tall with a potato-shaped body with pointy ears coming out the side of her head. She has dark blue hair that is tied with rose-pink bow tying them together into pigtails. She is wearing a small frilly black dress.“Ah, who is this Hiren?” she asks.“This is Solomon, but I’m going to call him Saul,” he’s the servant for that D’Roix girl I was telling you about.“Just Solomon?” Roland asks.“I was a slave when I was younger until my mistress took me in, so my last name eludes me,” you respond.Hirens uninterested facial features seem to shift as you finish your sentence. Roland and the girl place the papers that they were carrying onto the table and beckons the two of you to come over to sit on the couch.“Allow us to introduce ourselves, my name is Marcie Alabastar I’m a second year, but you can call me just Marcie,” she says happily smiling.“My name is Roland Cheruex, I’m sure you already know who I am, but you can just call me Roland,” Roland says.“So, what brings you to my club room today Saul? Do you plan on joining us? We accept anyone, as long as you follow the rules of the club,” Marcie asks.“I don’t think I would be allowed to join as I’m not a student here at the academy, but your advertisement flier piqued my interest, especially the part about the “portal of the lost”,” you say trying to put subtle familiarity in the term.Hiren stands up walking over to the cabinet bringing the group some small cookies on a platter. Marcie seems to quickly grab a couple clutching them into her hands. Roland and you only take one.“The Portal of the Lost is one of the 7 great mysteries of the academy. It says it appears before anyone who is truly lost and unable to find their way back to the place that they desire the most to go to, but the problem with the Portal, is that it will present you a trial of sorts that you will have to get passed to use, but the greater the distance the harder the trial will be. The trial can be anything,” Hiren says.“The reason why I’m interested in the portal, in particular, is because my mistress and I were in the garden together yesterday and got lost, and we believe we found something similar to of what you have just described,” you say. “OHHHHHHH, YOU FOUND SOMETHING LIKE THAT!” Roland yells out loud.Both you and Marcie cover your ears at Roland’s outburst.“Roland not so loud please, I have sensitive ears,” Marcie says before looking at you making the same gesture, “and apparent Saul does to…”>[2/3]
“Sorry, I got a little too excited, finding something amazing when lost and discovering something new makes me so happy,” Roland responds enthusiastically.“If you’d like bring your Mistress to the club room when you have a chance to, I’d like to speak more about her experience when she touched the doorknob of the portal, it seems really interesting, Hiren says.“What extracurricular classes will you three be taking? You ask.“We all will be taking, [Magical Studies], but Marcie and I will be in the second level of the class. They might be changing how the level system works though for this semester, we help each other with assignments and learning stuff outside of the classroom” Marcie says.The four of you begins to discuss your interests in magic, and what type of magic you’ve seen, you speak about the field studies professor and his [item box] ancient magic, as well as your fishing trip with him. Everyone seems to be interested in what you are speaking about, and you all feel comfortable being in the presence of each other, before you know it you see the sun going down and assume that Vivi must have sent someone to come and find you. Unlikely that they would find you here.“Well, I have to leave, for now, Vivi is probably wondering where I am,” you say.“Before you go, will you be joining the club? You seem like a really nice guy Saul I’d love to have you as a member and don’t worry you don’t have to wear black, we just happen to like wearing the color black, and Roland likes to wear red. We don’t have weekly meetings, but we often hang out in the club room during our free time or right after magical studies class, you can come by anytime.” Marcie says with stars in her eyes.>I’ll join, but I think I would have to ask my mistress for approval first.>No, I don’t think I can join.>Write-in

Hey anons, voting is still open. Just want to say that I have work today and will update sometime after I get out 10-12PM EST. See you all then ( ᐛ )و
>>3245996>>3246311>>3246433>>3248015>I’ll join, but I think I would have to ask my mistress for approval first.You look at the faces of the occult club, they are all smiling and would like to have you in their presence in the future, even Hiren’s uninterested posture seems to change when Marcie asks if you would like to join them, as both fellow club members and as friends.“I’ll join the Occult Club, but I will have to ask for my Mistresses’ approval first, I think she will agree,” you say.Roland walks up to you and stretches out his hand, “glad to have you with us, Saul, I hope we can quickly become great friends.”“Likewise,” you respond.Before leaving Marcie gives you a club registry sheet along with the rules of the club.“See you later Saul,” Marcie says as she waves you goodbye.When you walk outside a wet looking servant passing by notices your presence and states that your mistress was looking for your location and was last seen in Mercedes room. You thank the passing by servant, and head towards Mercedes room, before entering you can hear some conversation coming from inside.“Why is Czesara so mean and looking down on others, you’ve never did anything to her,” you hear Mercedes say.You knock on the door. Vivi answers the door.“Saul where have you been? I requested for your presence 30 minutes ago!” she says.“I was with the Occult club, I was paying them a visit, I wanted to ask about that strange house that we encountered the other night in the garden, now what is this about Czesara looking down at others?” you ask.Mercedes looks at you surprised that you were listening in on the conversation.“I should be careful what I say around you sweetie, I wouldn’t want anything slip,” she says.“Come in and sit down, Saul I’ll tell you what happened after our girl time after Caren left to go study,” Vivi says.You walk inside and sit down in a chair, listening to Vivi’s retelling of the events of what had transpired after her time with her friends. Basically, after the girls separated a servant was passing by and walked into each other spilling water all over, Czesara who was also nearby walking with the younger prince at the time blamed them both for their foolish actions and that people attending the academy should not be doing things such as making mistakes and spilling water on the floor and on themselves. She then demanded them to give a formal apology in person at her room later or they would face serious consequences, whatever they may be. (44 from earlier)“I don’t know what to do Saul, should I say sorry for something that I don’t think it was even my mistake, to begin with? I'm not good in these sort of situations,” Vivi says questioning you for advice.>You should apologize *Write-in*>I'll apologize for you *Write-in*>I'll apologize as you *Write-in*>Don't apologize *Write-in*>*Write-in* Something else?
>>3248879>I'll apologize for you *Write-in*Apologize on her behalf, but don't say that she asked/told us to apologize.Since we are apologizing on Vivi's behalf and not at her behest we can give a actual genuine-sounding apology without Vivi losing face. We should go late, just before the appointment with the headmaster, and give the excuse that Vivi has a prior appointment so she can't be there to apologize in person. Something like:"Good evening Ms Csesara. I am Solomon, Ms. D'Roix's servant. I have come to offer an apology on behalf of Ms. D'Roix, who regrettably has prior arrangements and cannot be here in person."Bonus points if Vivi is actually seen in public doing nothing particularly important (so Czesara could hear about it later, if she cared enough to find out if Vivi was actually preoccupied).
>>3248879Wait, so if I'm reading this correctly no water actually got on Czesara at all? She's just throwing a bitchfit because we...sullied the academy name? QM pleae confirm? Anyway gonna go with a write in >We'll go together to her room to sort things out>but we're not going to apologise to Czesara for a simple accident that didn't involve her at all. >But you should apologise to the servant you ran into if you see them again. It's only fairThen when at the room kill Czesara with kindness. Give her the bare minimum of ammunition against us. Use lines such as: Ah Miss Czesara, I want to thank you for that wonderful idea earlier of giving an apology to the servant I ran into! (Note Czesara said she wanted Vivi to make a formal apology by the evening - she didn't specify WHO the apology was meant for)Then carry one with saying that Vivi's tutors have taught her that it's important for a noble to be respectful to everyone - clearly Czesara understand that better than her etc etc. Either Czesara goes along with Vivi to save face, or says why the hell should I give commoners respect. If she does the latter, then that gives a perfect opeing for Vivi/Saul to lecture HER on not being a big bitch to the little people.
>>3249601>Wait, so if I'm reading this correctly no water actually got on Czesara at all? She's just throwing a bitchfit because we...sullied the academy name? QM pleae confirm?My apologies anon for making it unclear, you are correct, no water got on her at all. Next time I'll trip check my writing for anything that may seem confusing.
>>3248879>I'll apologize for youNo good with write ins so I'll support other anons
>>3248879>Don't apologise. >Find the servant Vivi soaked and apologise to him instead. Yeah Czesara can go fuck herself, she didn't even get wet. Also I have a feeling she wants Vivi to come alone to her room so that she can get pranked / hazed or something. What Vivi should do is find the poor servant she soaked and apologise to him - that's just polite. Maybe offer to get his uniform cleaned? Best if she apologises somewhere public so that there are witnesses, so they can vouch for her actions when Czesara kicks off. Tbh I do like >>3249601 idea of mentioning to Czesara she didn't say WHO to apologise to if/when she starts making a stink. Vivi DID apologise...to the party who was actually wronged here.
>I'll apologize for you *Write-in*>>3249214>>3249841Don't Apologize>>3250097Write-in>>3249601I'll leave voting open for now.
>>3248879>>3250097Supporting this. Don't apologise to Czesara, apologise to the servant.
>>3249601>Water didn't even affect CzesaraYeah ignore my entire write in >>3249601No way are we apologising solely for insulting her snobbish sensibilities. Also other anons are right in that going to her room alone is just asking for trouble.Gonna vote for >>3250097 instead.
>>3249214>>3249601>>3249841>>3250097>>3250929>Don't apologize *Write-in*Just got home from work anons, I'll begin writing soon.
>>3249841>>3250097>>3250929>>3251034>>3249214“You need to apologize, but not to Czesara. The way I see it Vivi is that Czesara is trying to step all over you and trying to make you look bad. She didn’t even get wet, but you know who did get wet? The Servant. He was still wet when I went to go find you after visiting the occult club. During dinner today, when that servant comes to serve food or is passing by, call him over and tell him that you are sorry for running into him and spilling water. I’ll offer to clean his uniform, if he hasn’t already, it’ll make you look good look in the eyes of other people, and Czesara will have to hold back on making you apologize to her instead,” you say.“…ok I think I can do that. It’s almost time for dinner anyway,” Vivi says.“Come on, let's go eat dinner, you will feel better after you eat something,” says Mercedes.Picking up your things, the three of you walk towards the dining hall area to sit down and see what is for dinner today, before you sit down you step to the side and ask for a servant matching the description of who you saw earlier to serve you dinner today. You also take note that there are several conversations going in the dining hall area that you can hear much more clearly now, but you take notice that not many of the students, eat in the dining hall rather than during breakfast. Perhaps they rather eat in their own quarters, as neither Caren or Charles seems to present currently.“So, Saul did anything interesting happen today?” Mercedes asks.“As I said earlier, I visited the Occult club, they told me about the Portal of the Lost and wants to meet with Vivi about her experience with it, maybe you’d like to come along to hear as well, also I have something to ask of you at a later time Vivi,” you say.“That’s nice to hear that you finally learned more about it, tell me more about it later, I might tag along,” Mercedes says.>[1/2]
The servant that you asked for comes up to the table with a platter of food leaving it at the table, today’s dinner is spaghetti with shrimp, swimming in a succulent gourmet blend of sauces, topped with basil leaves to add a hint of extra flavor. You wink to Vivi signaling her to get ready to apologize, she beckons the servant over.“Excuse me sir, I wanted to say that I am sorry for running into you, and getting water spilled all over, I wasn’t watching where I was going, if you haven’t cleaned your uniform yet, I can have my servant, Solomon, to wash it on your behalf,” Vivi says as she motions over to you.You nod your head in approval of her well-said apology, you can hear that some people are speaking about her apologizing to a mistake that she had made earlier to a servant. The servant pauses at her apology and thanks her for the apology, before turning his head down almost as if he was in shame, something seemed to be off…“Thank you for your apology mistress, but I’ve already cleaned up my uniform it was just water. Thank you very much though,” the servant says before moving back to the kitchen.Mercedes starts supporting Vivi on her well-said apology, after dinner the three of you start getting up and start heading towards the exit when you see the servant from earlier shift away from the kitchen staff, heading down another hallway, walking rather quickly.>Try to Follow the Servant(Meet back up with the girls later)>Just go to Mercedes Room>[2/2]

>>3253815>>3253827>>3253970>74 “Excuse me I’ll meet you back in the room later I need to check on something,” you say. “Ok, but be back soon,” Vivi says.You excuse yourself from the girls and start following the servant that Vivi apologized to earlier. You follow him from a distance watching his back and listening to his footsteps making sure not to be detected that you are nearby. He rounds the corner and enters a room. You listen carefully for anyone who may be inside. (74)“Mistress, I have news to report,” you hear the servant says.“What is it? I’m getting ready for that D’roix girl to come to visit me,” you hear Czesara’s voice from within.“It seems that your plan to embarrass someone was ineffective,” the servant says.“How so?” Czesara asks.“Today when serving dinner, the D’roix girl seemed to have mistaken your request and apologized to me, instead for spilling the water. She then proceeded to offer that her servant clean my uniform,” the servant says.“Hmmm, that is unfortunate, but no matter I’ll just treat it as a mistake and move on to someone else, I currently don’t hold anything versus the D’roix girl, for now, go ask one of the staff members for information regarding odd-looking people” you here Czesara say.“As you wish,” you hear the Servant says before his footsteps grow closer to the door.You quickly rush to hide behind something as the servant passes by without noticing your presence. Czesara seems to just like messing with others for her own amusement you deduct.>Follow the Servant again>Just go back to Mercedes’s room>Write-in
>>3254484>Follow the Servant again
>>3254484>Follow the Servant againLet's find out what the servant will dig up regarding odd looking people. We might be able to give them a heads up later about what Czesara is planning for them.If Vivi asks what took us so long, we were getting to the bottom of what Czesara is up to.

>>3254842>>3254877>>3255139>>3255291>85You decide to follow the unnamed servant once more after leaving Czesara’s room, while the information that you may gain no longer pertain to your master, you dislike Czesara’s intentions towards the other students. Once more the servant moves quickly as he makes his way throughout the hallways unaware that you are lurking and following him from afar. You see the servant step outside the academy into the front courtyard walking up to someone and lighting a cigarette.“Fucking bitch has me running wild,” you hear the servant say.“More trouble with the mistress?” you hear a familiar voice speak out. It’s Rena. “She wants me to go find people so that she can make fun of them for her own pleasurable enjoyment, crazy girl,” the servant says.“If you don’t do it, your goose is cooked right?” Rena says.“You bet, you got any intel? I don’t want to look for it myself” the servant asks.“Besides that, D’roix girl I told you about, not currently. If you pay me some gold, I might be able to find you something interesting, Rena says.“Here’s your damn money,” the servant says.You can hear the clatter of gold being exchanged, before the two starts to complain about their day and other rambling nonsense. Deciding not to waste any more time you head back to Mercedes room, where you find Mercedes teaching Vivi something.“Saul you are late, what were you doing!” says Vivi.“I saw the servant that you apologized to earlier, he was being rather suspicious, so I followed him,” you say.“You stalked him,” Mercedes says.“No, I didn’t stalk him, I just walked from a far distance from him and listened to his footsteps and just happened to be in the general area of his location,” you say trying to move around the word of stalking.“Anyways, I learned that the servant who we apologized was actually one of the servants working for Czesara, in a ploy to embarrass Vivi for her own pleasures, but it turns out that she actually has nothing wrong with Vivi, and just likes messing with others. Also, Rena, Charles maid was the one who got Vivi targeted in the first place,” you say.Vivi gasps at this information.“Should we tell Charles? I wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to my sweet smelling, I mean smiling Charles,” Vivi said correcting herself.“I don’t think you should tell him anything, I think it will be ok for now, just watch out for her in the future and both you and Charles should be fine,” says Mercedes.“Anyways Saul, we don’t have as much time today for a lesson, because you are late and I don’t want to repeat myself, but also because I have to rest for the extracurricular classes’ tomorrow, today we’ll be learning what Vivi chose today. [Enhanced Scent of Smell] , She says that Charles’s hair has a sweet honey scent and that she enjoys it, so we’ll be working on that for a little bit tonite before I head off to sleep.>Roll 1d100

>48You sit down alongside Vivi and start looking over the notes that Vivi has taken during your absence and try to make sense of them to no avail. Vivi tries to help you understand them so that Mercedes won’t have to backtrack and repeat herself. You find yourself somewhat distracted during the lesson thoughts going to the events of Czesara and finding out that Rena is some type of information broker, and sold out Vivi for money... Thankfully Vivi is also a good teacher and pulls your attention back into focus. (48) & (91)>Learning [Enhanced Scent of Smell](Basic)“How far along have you gotten with learning intermediate hearing, Saul?” Mercedes ask.“I’ve actually already learned it, I was studying when I had nothing better to do, and am quite fond of the enhancement. I’m currently using it right now,” you say.“Ohhhhhh” both Mercedes and Vivi say.“Now I really do have to watch what I saw when I’m around you sweetie~ If you want to keep that enhancement don’t write another one or it will disappear, they wash off after a couple of days,” Mercedes says.“I’m ready to apply the smelling one Mercedes,” says Vivi.“Please call it by its name Vivi, it sounds better when you do,” you say.Mercedes comes over to Vivi and asks for her to lift up her shirt, so that she may apply the basic enhancement on her. You watch as Mercedes expertly places the key on her, and for a moment Vivi looks like she is gasping for breath, worrying you, until she starts to breathe again normally.“Saul…Is that lavender?" Vivi asks as she brings her face close to your chest.“It’s lilac, but I’m glad to see that the key is working well, what else can you smell?” you ask.“For some reason, breathing has become much clearer, or maybe that’s just me talking. Also, your room smells really nice Mercedes,” Vivi says.“Thank you, Vivi, I never really used the enhanced smelling that much so tell me about your experiences with it later ok?” Mercedes says.“Oh, I can’t wait to see Charles tomorrow!” Vivi says smiling.“I’m glad to see you happy Vivi, you still have that present waiting for you in the room,” you say.“Oh yeah! Let’s go now, Saul!” Vivi says as she walks towards the door.“I’ll see you tomorrow,” says Mercedes.>Ask/Tell Mercedes Something before leaving *Write-in*>Just go to Vivi's room>Write-in
