"Time to investigate this place." Frost said, stood up and walked towards where the door out of the room was but she suddenly paused when she noticed the clothes she was wearing. It was a white nightgown below the knee. She narrowed her eyes and walked to another direction and open a door which has a tag written on it that says, 'Closet'
A frustrated sigh was breathed out by Frost when she saw what was inside. There are various dresses for different occasions, for just a casual day, and for hunting. However, it was all a dress which Frost was not used to wearing.
"This will do." she said in an annoyed tone. She picked up a simple black colored dress, one fitted shorts, and a pair of black flat shoes.
She went outside of the room. She started walking aimlessly. Just casually observing her surroundings. Two words to describe this place, expensive and massive. Frost can see the paintings in the wall and she believes that it was of an astronomical amount, that also goes for the vases and carpets. The place was massive to the point that Frost couldn't find where the exit was.
It did not take her an hour to see a woman who looked like a servant based from what she is wearing. The servant was holding a clean towel and a bucket with water in it.
“Do you know where the library is?” Frost asked the servant in a plain tone.
The servant was first stunned to see the Princess, but she got shocked afterwards when she started talking to her. Then her face showed contempt.
“And why are you looking for the library, Princess?” The servant said in distaste. She was looking down to this Princess who acts like a fool and can't even activate her magic. So different from her siblings who are cultivation geniuses. The pride of Esperanza Kingdom.
When Frost saw the servants undisguised contempt for her, she narrowed her eyes.
‘Looks like the reputation of the original owner of this body is not that good. Actually, it seems rather bad.’ She inwardly said. Still, she didn't like the servants look on her face.
"Do you know who am I?" Frost asked while narrowing her eyes.
The servant became confused when she heard the Princess asking her. But she then answered her in a matter of fact tone, "You're Princess Hiraya."
Frost nodded her head. Then she asked again, "And you? What's your position?"
"A royal servant." said the servant proudly.
"A servant huh. Then do you know what would happen to servants who disrespected their employer?" Frost said in a very cold voice, face emotionless.
It was only then that the servant was stunned. There was a frightened look on her face while looking at the Princess. Consequently, she suddenly turned pale at the sight of her pair of cold eyes. They're cold as snow.
"Do you think a Princess like me would be punished if I kill a useless servant like you this instant? Who do you think you are to not respect the people whom you are serving? How bold of you.” Frost uttered in a cold voice. The servant’s face went pale even more. Her body shaking in fear. And her knees turned jelly because of how scared she was.
"Do you now know your position?"
The servant hurriedly nodded towards the Princess and even kneeled, while she begged and stuttered, “Please forgive me, Princess Hiraya.”
"Lead the way." said by Frost in a serious tone.
The servant immediately stood up not wanting to further anger the Princess who seemed to be a different person.
"This way Princess."
Frost followed the still scared servant. And while they are walking towards the library, Frost did not stop observing her surroundings. It was only normal to observed her surroundings. Especially, a strange one.
It only took them half an hour to finally reached the library. Frost first dismissed the servant before she strutted inside the library.
'This place is not the same as my world.' she said in a matter of fact tone. She knew that this place is magical, the evidence would be the 'healing pill' she took earlier. Because the medicine on her original world, is not that fast to take an effect and it wasn’t that effective.
The medicine on her world could not magically diminish the pain and clearly not heal small cuts in an instant. That's why Frost concluded that this place is magical.
And what place is the best place to learn some knowledge? Obviously the library.
Frost wandered around the library. Trying to find a useful book to read.
"World of Mages and Supernaturals. This one."
"Royal Family of Esperanza Kingdom."
Frost brought the two books she has found towards the brown couch. She sat down and started reading the first book she found.
"Thousand years ago, humans were living completely ordinary lives. But the peaceful world of humans was disrupted when demons started appearing. There were thousands of deaths. Humans were killed little by little. However, when the humans thought that they were all going to be eradicated. Countless Gods and Goddesses appeared. They gifted them their magic in which later on, humans who got the gift were called mages. Using the gifts, they received from the Gods and Goddesses, humans united and fought the demons. Countless lives were forfeited. The demon king died, and the demons retreated.
Mages used their power to form a seal onto the passages where demons came from.
The humans rejoiced.
Humans started to get greedy. Killed their own kind to show who's more superior and powerful. Robbed people's land. Killed carelessly.
Suddenly there were three young men who heroically stopped the chaos. They were then called leaders. And got their own land to lead.
This resulted in the emerging of three Kingdoms; Esperanza Kingdom, Augustus Kingdom, and Claude Kingdom.
The humans once again found peace."
"There are four common magics: Fire, Air, Water, and Earth.
Two special magics: Ice and Lightning.
And two rare magics: Light Attribute and Dark Attribute.
Humans can either inherit their magics from their parents or the magics will choose their owners.
Humans started activating their magic at the age of 12. Humans who did not receive a gift were called ordinary humans. And humans who have magic are called mages."
"Mages, huh. Interesting." Frost nodded in amazement while holding her chin.
She then proceeded to read the other book.
"Esperanza Kingdom is one of the three Kingdoms that leads humanity. Hernando Esperanza was the first King of Esperanza Kingdom. And one of the greatest air mages in history. Attaining a Martial Ranked Level 5 before he passed away.
Now, at the present time, the current King of Esperanza Kingdom is Alejandro Esperanza.

"Looks like this body has a big family." But it seemed like the original owner of this body has not a good disposition towards her family for whatever reasons, Frost didn’t know.
"Let's see. How does someone cultivate again? First, sit in a lotus position. Calm your mind. And feel it."
Frost immediately arranged herself into a lotus position. She then closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and eased her mind.
Frost patiently followed the instructions. She should be seeing any of the one color of the different magic attributes yet she instead saw a young lady who looks just like her, standing in the middle of the darkness.
The young lady was staring straight at Frost. The young lady's mouth opened and a soft calming voice was heard, "Hiraya."
"- -that I conclude that Princess Hiraya has an amnesia." reported Doctor Herrero in a respectful tone to the man in front of him. But the man seems like he was not listening. His face showed lack of interest to what he's reporting. The man kept his attention at the various reports from different departments, face emotionless. "Are you sure she's not faking it?" Was what the man said, doubt filled his tone. It was none other than, King Alejandro, the current King of Esperanza Kingdom and Princess Hiraya's father. Doctor Herrero can't help but grimace in his mind. He knows that the King did not favor the Princess but he did not think that the King would think that his daughter (who might really have an amnesia), was just acting. The man did not even ask the current condition of the Princess, and instead the King seemed to be accusing the Princess of lying. "Princess Hiraya is acting strange after she wakes up. I can tell that she's very different from before. It might be the effect o
"I was right. This body is poisoned." Frost said in a serious tone after she inspected her body.A while ago, after her encounter with her "older brother", Antonio, she went directly to her room. And started analyzing the memories that Princess Hiraya shared with her. The Princess did not activate any of the 9 magic attributes. Another reason why she was casted away by almost everyone. She was treated like an abomination by not only her family but also the people around her.But Frost doesn't believe that the Princess truly didn't have magic. Both of her parents are powerful mages. It's rare for two astounding mages to give birth to a child who doesn't have magic attributes. So there's definitely something wrong with her body.So when she inspected her body, she found out the cause. There's a poison blocking her spiritual root or vein. The spiritual vein is where the magic flows. Out of the body, a
'It's just a small meeting gift... cousin.'That's right. The average looking lady who humiliated the waiter, and was sent tumbling by Frost is none other than Alice dela Cruz, Child of Duke dela Cruz and Lady Victoria dela Cruz. Also, the one who pushed the Princess in the river that caused her death.Frost may have looked calm but deep inside she was seething in anger. She was really trying hard to restrain herself from killing her so called cousin the moment she saw her. She feels like it's too easy for her if she would kill her this way. She would drive her into insanity first before killing her. And that goes for her mother as well. The bitch who also made the Princess's life miserable.If anyone would dare to poison a member of the Royal Family, only that pair of mother and daughter would have the guts to do so. Yes, they're the main suspect of Frost. And she has multiple reasons to suspect them.&n
Frost waltzed her way inside the Palace. She again expertly avoided the cumbersome Royal guards. She was not afraid of trouble. But staying out of trouble benefits her more. When she arrived in her room, she did not waste her time and immediately took out all the ingredients she would need in making an antidote against the poison in her body from the cosmos bag.She picked up one kilo of Green leafy starch, Zynia grass, and Nylories vines.Next, she went inside the bathroom, but before she put the three ingredients in the bathtub, she first filled up the bathtub with water. And when the water is enough for her to use, it is only then she expertly poured all the three ingredients on the bathtub.While Frost unhesitatingly eats the two poisonous plants which are the Lamia flower and Sniopon plant. Next, she took all of her clothes off and submerged herself onto the bathtub filled with herbal plants. Frost can already feel the effect of the two
Butler Aricia was having a hard time maintaining his polite smile. Even though he can't see it, he can still feel the Princess's intense gaze on his back. He can even feel the suffocating aura wrapping his entire being that is coming from the Princess which is trying to subdue him. He was bewildered but he also wants to laugh at himself for feeling a tinge of fear to the Princess. It's just ridiculous. But he knows that there is definitely something wrong with the Princess. If it's because of her amnesia, he doesn't know anymore. It doesn't seem to be that simple. On the other hand, Frost was leisurely following the Head Butler. She was a bit happy to see him being uncomfortable around her. She was testing him. After 10 minutes of walking, they stopped in front of a gold colored dress that has a word carved in it that says, “King’s Office”.Butler Aricia knocked on the door and said in a loud voice, "Princess Hiraya is
Frost directly went to the dining area after the heated conversation with her “siblings”. She was so hungry that she felt like she could eat a whole cow. With the help of the memories' the Princess shared with her. She easily found the dining area. She then saw the first servant she saw back then. When the servant noticed the presence of the Princess, she immediately approached her. "What can I do for you, Princess Hiraya?" The servant said in a respectful tone. "Please give me some food to eat. Thank you." Said Frost. Although the servant at their first meeting was arrogant, she already learned her lesson and knows how to act in front of her. Frost likes this kind of person.Frost's attitude depends on how the people treat her. So if you treat her with respect, she'll do the same. It was that simple. But there are really some people who should not be respected at all because of her/his sins that he/she made.
"I'm okay." Frost said while staring at General Valencia. Her face was indifferent but her voice was softer than before."Aren't you supposed to be sleeping right now Young lady, hmm?" General Valencia uttered while also looking intently at Frost. Frost was about to answer his question when the Royal guards came rushing towards their way. "General Valencia, who is this beautiful young lady?” One of the Royal guards asked the General while staring at Frost in awe. He was also looking at Frost in amazement, and when he saw how beautiful the girl in front of him was, he felt his heart beating fast. And so, he could not help himself but to ask her this, "Miss, are you a beast tamer? And perhaps, single?" He was grinning playfully at Frost. General Valencia furrowed his eyebrows and smacked the Royal guard's head. “Ouch!” The Royal guard shrieked in pain, and rubbed his sligh
"What is her name again?""That child? Her name is Hiraya Frost Akira. She's the daughter of Giovanni and Hermosa Akira.""Wow, this kid is definitely the future of the Akira Clan.""I know. Look how she viciously killed her opponent. Smooth and decisive. Isn't she just a little devil?""What did you say? You dare to disobey my words. You ungrateful brat. I'm the one who birthed you so you better do what I say. Your life is mine." The shout of a woman bombarded the room. Her beautiful face contorted, her expression was twisted and scary. The woman was holding a bloody whip with barbs on it. While she carelessly moves it, causing it to land unto the figure of a child whose body is curling in the carpeted floor. The child was in no way in a good condition. There are several wounds on her body, both new and old. Her clothes were tattered. And her back was so b
