"The most magnificent palace in the world is the library with the largest collection of books."
Joelson remembered a famous person in his previous life saying something like this.
The library of the Tulip Academy of Magic was indeed as magnificent as a palace.
The upper and lower floors were arranged neatly in brown oak bookshelves.
When he looked up, he saw a vast starry sky. The stars in the sky rotated slowly like a huge whirlpool.
It symbolized endless wisdom and power.
The formula for an intermediate magic potion.
Joelson was considering how to find it.
Joelson called out to a girl who walked past him. He was about to ask her.
But he was suddenly stunned.
He knew this girl.
She was the girl who had emerald-like clear eyes and ice-blue curly hair. She peeked at him in class.
The girl seemed to have recognized him as well.
Her eyes flashed with shyness and panic, and her fair and pretty face turned red to her ears.
"Yes, is... is there something wrong?"
Joelson came to his senses and asked, "I want to know, how do I find the book I Want?"
"Just... just find a tutor."
The girl stammered back.
Joelson nodded. "Thank you."
Just as he was about to turn around and leave, the girl suddenly called out to him.
Joelson looked back strangely.
The girl was so shy that she wanted to cover her face.
"I... I am a book tutor."
Joelson did not know what to say, so he could only smile.
After a simple conversation, Joelson learned that the girl's name was Juliana.
Every day, after the class was over, she would take on a part-time job as a tutor in the library.
Her main job was to guide the students to search for books and tidy up the bookshelves.
The purpose was to earn credits.
Joelson had heard the word "Credits" repeatedly, so he asked.
"What's the use of credits?"
Juliana tilted her head and thought for a moment, then explained, "Each student must earn thirty-four credits a year. Only when they have earned enough credits can they be qualified to enter the next grade
"For the activities of the Academy Association, you can act as a tutor's assistant and meet the academic standards. You can obtain credits by passing the monthly academic test.
"Of course, if you violate the Academy's Regulations, credits will also be deducted. If you have more than thirty-four credits, the extra credits can also be exchanged for magic potions, magic materials, and so on at the Truth Society."
Joelson understood that the credits were similar to those from the university in his previous life, but they had a broader use.
Joelson realized that Juliana had been peeping at him. When he turned his head, she immediately dodged like a frightened deer. It was really very interesting.
Joelson smiled and did not expose her.
"What book are you looking for?"
Juliana finally could not help but ask.
"The Encyclopedia of Intermediate Magic Potion Formulas."
Joelson replied, "Is there a similar collection?"
Juliana shouted in a low voice in surprise. Her eyes were wide open, and she looked extremely cute.
"Have you already advanced to intermediate potioneering?"
Juliana's face was filled with admiration.
Joelson felt that this girl was really innocent and cute.
"I just want to take a look."
Joelson joked, "The library won't have a standard for borrowing books, right?"
Juliana actually nodded seriously and said, "But only high-level and above precious books have a requirement. Only academy instructors or glory class students are qualified to borrow them."
Alright, Juliana said another noun that Joelson didn't understand.
"Students who have the academy's recognition of their strength and have made contributions to the academy can receive the personal award of Dean Harriet Terrence."
Juliana waved at Joelson and walked to a three-meter-tall bookshelf.
She chanted a spell and a book automatically jumped out of the bookshelf and flew into her hand like a bird with wings.
"Here you are!"
Joelson took the book and flipped through a few pages. It was indeed the book he was looking for.
"Thank you!" Joelson expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Juliana.
Juliana's face turned red again. She lowered her head and nervously tugged at the hem of her skirt.
"This is my job to begin with."
Joelson smiled and chatted with Juliana for a while more before saying goodbye and leaving.
Juliana looked at Joelson's back as he left. Her eyes were blank, and no one knew what she was thinking.
In the Lucca Chamber of Commerce, a tall woman was reading a book in her hand.
She had a cold and elegant face, which gave her a shrewd temperament.
If Joelson were here, he would be surprised that the woman had the same blue hair color and a face that was 70-80% similar to Juliana's.
"He's 16 years old and has excellent spiritual power and magic perception. He's the most talented freshman in the history of the Tulip Academy. Oh, right."
The woman raised her head and looked at Benson, who was standing quietly in front of her with his hands hanging down. She asked, "You said that he easily killed a knight who was above Tier 3, and he used the instant fireball spell?"
Benson replied respectfully.
The woman showed a look of approval on her face and emphasized.
"You can think of giving that elf to him as a maid. This step is very good."
Benson raised his head and said excitedly, "Do you think it's possible for us to get Joelson on our side? If we get his help, the Chamber of Commerce will definitely be able to tide over the difficult situation!"
The woman shook her head.
"You're thinking too simply, Benson."
"Joelson is only a powerful first-rank mage now. The difficult situation we're facing isn't something a first-rank mage can solve. Moreover, a super genius like him who hasn't appeared in the past hundred years isn't someone our small Lucca Chamber of Commerce can get on our side."
"However, being able to befriend him is already enough to surprise me."
"When Joelson grows up, perhaps the Lucca Chamber of Commerce will be able to get on his good side and repeat the glory of the past."
Benson said hesitantly, "Miss, should we pay him a visit and further express our goodwill towards him?"
"No Rush." The woman said, "I have my own plans. Juliana will be back in a few days."
Lucas cried out in surprise.
"Miss, are you planning to let the second miss and him..."
A rare gentleness appeared in the woman's eyes. She said lightly, "It will be much more natural to approach him as a classmate, and it won't cause him to be disgusted. It is said that the temperaments of geniuses are very strange. If Juliana's charm can..."
The woman coughed lightly and didn't continue.
"That's even better."
It was too unpleasant to say "Seduce." It might be more appropriate to say that they liked each other.
"Benson, you can leave first."
"Yes, Eldest Lady."
She waved her hand and asked Benson to leave.
The woman let out a long sigh of relief. Thinking of the predicament the Chamber of Commerce was facing, she helplessly looked at the photo on the table and asked, "Father, can I really do it?"
