The melodious but bothersome sounds of the birds chirping aloud, without a care in the world, began resonating all over as the majestic sun slowly dawned upon the world.
On a large bed, with a relatively luxurious wooden frame, a rather interesting sight could be seen were there to be any onlookers.
Two people, a handsome young man, and an equally beautiful, mature woman could be seen entwined in each other’s carnal embrace, completely naked from head to toe. Their breathing was even and calm. Clearly, they were in the midst of deep sleep, tired because of their previous wild night of delight that they spent in each other’s scandalous company.
The state of the room, and the smell permeating throughout, clearly indicated that what happened last night was not something a minor should be allowed to witness or even become privy to.
The young black-haired man was a sight to behold, regardless of the gender of the beholder. He had a particular variety of androgynous beauty that could attract both men and women alike. It was a deadly charm that gave him a distinct edge over all of his competitors in the field of picking up girls.
His calm sleeping form seemed to be disturbed somehow as he began shifting uncomfortably in the bed. The sheets covering his naked body started squirming, a tell tale sign of the struggle his body must’ve been undergoing underneath.
Finally, his eyes trembled briefly before he got up abruptly with a look of horror and panic marring his handsome features.
He swiftly placed his right hand on his chest and felt his wildly beating heart drumming against his chest. At the same time, he continued to take deep breaths in order to calm himself down, calming his trembling body alongside his trembling mind. It was obvious for anyone to see that he had seen a particularly unpleasant dream— a nightmare, to be exact.
This cumbersome state of his lasted for a few seconds before he finally released a deep sigh full of lethargy before plopping his back along the bed rest.
“I had that nightmare again…”
Adam murmured as he scanned the room briefly before remembering that he wasn’t inside his home right now. Then again it should have been pretty evident by now if one knew of his living circumstances. Compared to the small room he was renting for himself, barely big enough to fit himself in and sleep inside the cramped place, this one was basically a palace.
Sweeping his hair to the sides, soaked with sweat due to his previous state of fear and anxiety inflicted on him by his nightmares, he looked at the brown-haired woman sleeping peacefully next to him. Her devilish body was still stained in white liquids— his bodily fluids to be exact, the type of fluid needed no mentioning.
It seemed that they had been too tired after all those straining exercises they conducted over bed and just fell asleep without bothering to take a bath. This was not the first time it had happened though, so he was already quite used to this sticky and uncomfortable state he was feeling down to his very bones.
Reminiscing of last night’s event, he took out a cigarette, from the box placed on the table next to the bed, lit it up with a lighter then pulled a long puff before exhaling out the turbid smoke quietly.
He knew that smoking was far from being the healthiest of habits, but it always helped wake him up from his deeply lethargic state.
Furthermore, thanks to what happened to him recently, the last thing that would kill him was mere lung cancer. In fact, he was sure that his body was going to process the neurotoxins in some way and emit them out in one way or another. He didn’t need to know of the method, or the exit path, however. He felt that he wouldn’t particularly like that knowledge.
A few minutes later, after he had finally managed to calm his tense nerves, he could feel the sheets beginning to move again, clearly, the other party was stirring awake from her deep slumber as well.
His eyes shifted to the groaning woman slowly entering the realm of reality again from her deep state of sleep.
Extinguishing the cigarette on the ashtray that was specially placed there for him, he asked with a gleam in his eyes.
Shuri gave him the stink eye when he asked him that question. They both knew he was the reason she was feeling so tired and sore in the first place, but she was simply too proud to bother responding to him on that rhetorical question. She was sure that inquiry was made with the explicit desire to tease the hell out of her and she would die before giving him the satisfaction of pulling it off.
Stifling a yawn, she stretched out, causing the sheet covering her sinful body to fall down, showing off her magnificent breasts and luscious curves to the world before anyone even asked for her magnificence to be shown… She didn’t need it, after all.
“What time is it?”
Looking at the clock on the wall, Adam’s eyes twinkled with blatant amusement as he answered, mirth evident in his tone.
“Seven-thirty. Seems like you will be late today.”
All sense of drowsiness vanished from her face. Giving him the middle finger, she stood up and bolted out of the bed in order to rush towards the shower at lightning speed, her voice trailing behind her as she uttered her complaints to him from the shower.
“I swear that if I am late, I am going to deduct some of your points!”
The sound of water flowing down the shower immediately followed after the door was closed behind her.
Laughing at her half-hearted threats, Adam debated having another quick romp under the shower with her. His growing lust and his sense of responsibility warred each other to the death. To his utter chagrin, however, responsibility won in the end.
Thirty minutes later, Shuri was prepared for work.
Her attire consisted of a black suit over a white shirt and a short black-colored, gray-striped pencil skirt that just reached above her knees, as well as a pair of brown thigh-high stockings with a garter belt that was still well hidden by her relatively skimpy pencil skirt.
Her left annular finger was adorned with a golden ring. It was a wedding ring, to be exact. One of considerable worth too.
Her long brown hair tied into a bun and her rectangular black-rimmed glasses gave her a rather strict and mean look. Nothing like the wild one she had while moaning under him just the night before. It was always entertaining how people could change the overall impression they gave with just some adjustments in their clothes and the accessories they wore.
Straightening her suit after making sure everything was alright, she asked him with an arrogant look etched on her noble face, as if she was sure what the answer would be even before she asked…
“How do I look?”
Giving a thumbs-up, Adam said jokingly, “You definitely don’t look like you were fucked by your student if that was worrying you.”
“I will take it as you saying that I am beautiful and perfect.”
She ignored his teasing words and inspected herself once again before giving a nod of satisfaction.
“Indeed. Perfect. As always.”
Walking toward the door of the bedroom, she peeked one last time over her shoulder.
“Don’t forget to lock the door before leaving. Also, if you are late for my class in the afternoon, I will really deduct your points, okay? You know I hate being absent in my class more than anything else.”
“See you in class, Professor Shuri.”
Looking at her swaying round buttocks, which dared a man to cop a feel of it by its scintillating motions, as she went away, Adam pondered a little before walking toward the shower.
A single word escaped from his lips, and in the next moment, what looked to be an old antique book with the symbol of an apple drawn on the neat antique cover appeared out of nowhere.
Opening the first page of the nigh-ancient tome, Adam smiled as he saw his <<Status>> written on the first page. It was one of the basic functions of the book. It showed him the condition of his body and the general parameters of his overall competence simplified into basic rank.
Of course, that was not the most important of things. Even though it may seem significant to anyone else. It had become an everyday thing to Adam now.
With the command of his mind, the pages kept turning and turning until a particular page was reached, the one he sought. At the beginning of the book was a word drawn in cursive writing and presented in a bold format for it to be eye-catching. A golden border also shone around the edges of the word pronouncing it further to the user.
<<Quests>> was the word, and under it were descriptions related to it that helped him in acquiring further power.
[Have Shuri break off her shackle and decide to give up on her cheating husband]
[Knowledge level required in the study of psychology has been deemed to be satisfactory.]
[Knowledge level required in the field of psychoanalysis has met the minimum standards.]
[All conditions have been met. Commencing Skill evolution.]
[The skill Silver Tongue has evolved into Snake Tongue. Please read the intended page and acquire the required knowledge.]
Below the letters that absurdly floated into existence, indicating to him the evolution of one of his prominent skills, was now the description of the new skill and further instructions for him to acquire the evolution through a full understanding of the basics.
Description: Your words have a great persuasive effect. Twisting lies and truths is as easy as breathing for you. Your words may now bend some measures of cognition and expedite themselves to be more believable and logical. The following effects are now applied…
Effect 1: Your lies can hardly be detected without a skill tailored for the detection of lies.
Effect 2: Your words have a greater chance of convincing people into doing your bidding.
Effects 3: Previous effects and criteria of actions are all enhanced when the target is a woman.]
Eagerly reading the description, Adam commanded the book to open the page related to the evolution of his skill.
There, under the acquirement method of his previous skill, golden rays etching the details of his skill evolution and the acquirement method of his new skill was swiftly being etched by who knows what.
Once the letters became more visible, the boy greedily devoured the new knowledge that was presented to him. There were some terms, and some instructions that were hard for him to process but with his comprehension skills he was soon able to glean on their true meaning.
Plus, the book also helped him in understanding the key factors of his new skill. Soon, he was able to completely understand his new skills which led him to further understand psychology and its related paths to a deeper level.
He was given the opportunity to implement his knowledge in new ways with the help of this skill of his. And the explicit perk of the skill enhanced those senses to a perfect level. Soon, he was able to completely acquire the skill on his own. And the writings next to the skill indicated his success in the matter.
[Snake Tongue successfully acquired. Comprehension rate – 15%… Evolution progress – 0%]
Satisfied and delighted in being able to advance one of his skills, Adam closed the book with another command of his, causing it to vanish in the next second.
Under the constant streaming of the hot shower, Adam absentmindedly contemplated his life. Even now, everything still felt like a distant dream. Reality and Fantasy seemed to have blended to keep him in this fantastical delusion.
He knew it to be real. Yet, he couldn’t completely discard that it may have been the production of his deluded mind either.
His current work.
And even his relationship with Shuri.
How did it all come to this?
He again recalled back to that fateful day not long before…
A day like any other…
(AN: So here we have the start of a new story. For those who don’t know me, I am Hikaru Genji. I am writing another story called Son of the Hero King. Which is in a Medieval Fantasy setting.
