Chapter 4There was a beep as the door opened. I blinked as I tried to focus on the scenery in front of me. It was like we were in a water park. There was a pathway in front of us and the curved walls were made out of glass with steel reinforcements. Dotted lights ran along the frame of the steel and also the ground - giving us enough luminance to see.
Chapter 5There was a beep as the white walls of my pod began to change into white wooden walls. I blinked and started scanning the holographic control panel. There was a 3D model of my room. I dragged a dirty white wallpaper on the walls of my 3d room, then added a soft wooden boards for the floors. Once I was satisfied, I used a finger to swipe the image upward. Immediately, my real room imitated the image from the control panel.At least now it doesn't feel as suffocating as before.I also learned that you can add furnitures or change them depending on your liking. I actually spend a lot of time decorating the room sinceI couldn't sleep a wink. I mean, I was sleeping until I dreamed about being in the plane again. Falling and falling. Then hitting the waters. Then there comes the bodies. Bloodied. Faces morphed. Gutts on the floors...I shivered at the memory.I woke up at around 3 am. I didn't bother to go back to sleep i
Chapter 6"Rachel?" I breathed as I felt relief washing over me as I gaze upon the blonde haired girl sitting on a white bed with blue line lights on the edges. She was talking to a women wearing a white and blue jumpsuit. When she heard my voice, she looked back and grinned."Hey you. Come on in."I looked puzzled at her cheery attitude. The last time I saw her, she was angry and crying after she lost her unborn child. But looking at her now...she seemed to have recovered from the incident. Or perhaps calmed down a bit.I moved and went inside when I felt the burning gaze of Skyr on me. I stood in front of Rachel and gave her an awkward wave of hand. "Hi." I said and bent down to hug her when I saw her making that gesture. "You look well." I said after we parted.She glanced to the side and smiled. "I can't be a sour puss forever. I mean, in a way I am at fault. I should have become more suspicious when I saw an ad fla
Chapter 7The next day, Rachel and I stood side by side as we faced Skyr. We were standing outside of the white dome at the center of the sector and looking up at it. Rachel was here when Skyr and I arrive escorted by one of the Atlanteans that we saw in the plane crash. It was the one who assissted her before. I believe his name is Duncan. I remebered his face but I wasn't able to fully look at the man when he came to help us. Duncan has a black hair with white bangs covering his green eyes. He was as muscular as Skyr but a bit shorter.Rachel and I were wearing red fitted jumpsuis. An attire that symbolizes our beginner status from the group. Skyr was wearing a gray and black attire with green shoulder pads. Duncan, stood just behind Skyr with one of his hands on the door. Skyr gave us one last look before looking back at Duncan and gave him a curt nod. Duncan returned the gesture and twisted his hand a little. Blue circular light with foreign langua
Chapter 8I got up from my sitting position and stood on the platform. Skyr jumped down first and looked up when I didn't follow. "Jump." He says. When he saw my hesitant look he added. "I'll catch you. Hurry." He ordered. The command in his tone gave me the last push I need as I jump. As soon as I did, Skyr moved to the side and I landed on my feet. I braced myself for the short tingle from the impact that was about to come. Nothing. My feet fully supported me.I looked back at Skyr and glared at him for lying. In response, he simply shrug. A small hint of a smile on his lips. "Best way to learn is through experience."I clicked my tongue. "Thanks, teach!" I said with fake enthusiasm. "You're the best!"Skyr didn't say anything as he lead me to where Duncan, Rachel, and the guy named Byron were. As soon as we were in front of him, Skyr bowed his head in greeting like how Duncan did earlier. "I humbly serve thee, lord of the sea."
Chapter 9"If this is real, please pinch me." I breathed out the words in amazement. I was lifting! I was lifting a whooping 130 lbs barbell - at least from what the holographic numbers are telling me. The barbell that I was raising over my head felt like a small sack of flour. I was still gasping in delight at the absurdity of it all, but it was real."You think you can handle more, miss Nathalia?" Skyr asked. He was standing in front of me with his arms crossed over his chest. There was a smile on his lips that I could only assume was a reflection of mine. That or he finds my reaction amusing."I think so?""General." A petite Atlantean girl called out to him running frantically. "Gerald and Klein are fighting again." She said to him. Skyr gave her a nod before turning towards Duncan. "Watch over them while I'm gone." He told him before moving to follow the girl out of the gym - I called it that because this portion of the room reminds
Chapter 10After Skyr, Duncan, and a few Atlantean vanished yesterday for some sort of emergency, the cafeteria seemed empty - half empty. Rachel and I sat together on one table because Jack, Emily, and Watson were nowhere to be found. We could only assume that they were part of the people that were called for the situation.I was already dressed in my red newbie uniform and was headed for the cafeteria. I kept on rubbing on my arms to massage it and try to ease up the muscles. They were still sore, but it felt better than they did yesterday.I guess I could thank my enhanced genes for that."Hey." I greeted Rachel the moment that I saw her. She was walking sluggishly, like all she wanted to do at that moment is to drop on the floor and sleep. She turned her head when she heard my voice. She nodded and gave me a weak wave of her hand. "Hey." She said and squinted her eyes as I approached her. "You monster. How can you look
Seeing the reincarnated demi god again - after knowing his identity that is - I couldn't seem to find my own voice. I was nervous and when I looked at Rachel, she was gaping like a fish. She must have been as flustered as I am. I tried to recall what Duncan and Skyr did when they faced him. I gulped and lowered my head as I remembered Duncan and Skyr. "I serve t-" "No no no. Please." Byron immediately said making me look up at him worriedly. Did I do something wrong? Did I say the wrong words? Byron must have read my expression. "Please. I really am uncomfortable when people treat me like a god. So, unless it's for some official purpose, please just greet me normally." He said. Rachel and I exchanged glances before looking back at him with a nod. Byron grinned in satisfaction. "So, mind telling me why you two are here? Are you guys skipping with your training?" He whispered. "O-of course not, sir!" Rachel quickly denied. "We have permission to be here.
