Dean was sure that he had never seen the receptionist before in his life but guessed that she thought he was like that other student.
Wanting to find Leonard he didn't explain with words but just gave the note to the receptionist.
She was ready to scold the student if he forgot anything important within the building but he suddenly handed her a note.
Taking it, her eyes widened when she read the number code while the room number at the bottom allowed her to understand the student's visit.
Giving a meaningful glance towards Dean, she walked away after giving back the note.
Dean was confused why the receptionist was coming off as mysterious but shrugged it off.
Going deeper into the building, there felt a sinister aura that was filled with depressing thoughts, reminding one negative thoughts.
After a little research, Dean would guess that the building was secretly holding a cultivation array for cultivators that need this type of energy.
Connecting the dots one by one, he realized that Leonard had never told him what cultivation technique he was cultivating.
The one thing Dean was sure of was that Leonard was capable of using water magic.
Since Leonard originated from a powerful family with a long history then one factor that could connect all of this together was the lost arts of Taoism.
A common representation of Taoism was the usage of the Yin and Yang sign.
Yang represented sun, positive, man, fire, etc while Yin represented moon, negative, woman, water, etc.
Another fact that Dean remembered was that Leonard himself had yet to use the new pills he had cultivated.
He mentioned that the pill would allow one to reach the True Essence realm.
Sighing, Dean felt that all his worry was pointless after finally concluding that Leonard was probably fine.
They crossed through a bunch of corridors as well as traveled up flights of stairs.
Dean was tempted to ask the receptionist how close they were to the location however she suddenly stopped in front of a metal door.
"Here is the room."
She took a key out of her pocket and opened the door to reveal a dimly lit room and multiple metallic tables in rows.
Dean;s eyes constricted when he saw what was on top of the tables but sensing how there was a subtle fluctuation of Mana, he tried to brush it off as a weird meditation technique.
On most of the tables were white blankets that cloaked the outline of a human body, resting atop the cold.
Going to the furthest table, the receptionist made sure to check a clipboard hanging off the table and nodded.
Lifting up the table she said to Dean.
"Is this who you were looking for?"
Underneath laid Leonard.
His hair was in a disorderly mess like a straw broom; hands dyed in black like a beautiful onyx.
White, pale skin; burnt skin and grim eyes.
Was this really Leonard?
Dean's hopes shattered into disappointment and felt like the whole thing was just a roller coaster.
The roller coaster would slowly rise up and up, waiting for the final climax with subtle clues that lead Dean to believe that Leonard was fine but this revelation was where the roller coaster suddenly stopped.
It was stuck at the very peak, just before the drop.
Staring carefully at the eyes of Leonard, it reflected all the emotions he had experienced.
Complete confusion and sheer terror was what Dean was able to gather when he added the stiff muscle around his face as another clue.
Dean remembered that Leonard would most of the time control an indifferent, emotionless face making him reject the notion that this was actually him.
Grabbing the clipboard off the table, he made sure to read the name.
The words accidentally escaped out of his mouth.
Dropping the clipboard onto the dirty floor, a metallic vibration rang out while Dean turned his hand into a grip, aiming for Leonard's chest.
The collar where he would grab Leonard for stupid decisions was gone and now his whole life was gone as well.
Seeing Dean turning slightly violent, the receptionist quickly grabbed hold of his arm and kicked one of his legs.
This caused him to go off balance allowing the teacher to pull his arm forward, flipping dean forward so that his butt would land on the floor instead of his face.
Placing the arm she grabbed into a lock, she threatened that she could instantly dislocate it.
"Student, I recommend you calm down at this instance!"
Dean's vision was spazzing out as it was going between the neutral colors of the shades between white and black while it tended to revert back to his normal sight.
It was the bottled emotions that suddenly came out causing all of this anger but after throwing enough of his angry fit, Dean finally calmed down.
The receptionist wasn't joking as Dean could definitely feel the pain that woke him up from the weird state and quickly admitted his mistake.
Standing up once more and looking down at Leonard's face he couldn't take it anymore.
Running away from the building at once and returning to his dorm, the receptionist stood there is wonder at the weird recommendation that teacher gave.
Dean brainstormed what he could do as he thought for a moment that once he obtained enough power there would be no one that could contest against him but he was merely ignorant.
Words started to pop into his head
It was impossible to create such a beast that went against nature's law.
No matter what he thought of there was nothing that he could do.
"It's been 3 days, what the hell has that kid been doing?"
"Hah, I knew it he wouldn't arrive, pay up."
"Ah shut it. It's not the end of the day yet."
"Hmmph, you can't accept your defeat. No kid would actually want to collude with you no matter what circumstance. I bet he was scared off by your face."
