Chapter 3 Tremble

  • Chapter 3- Tremble
  • Elise lived at the orphanage for three weeks and is now used to
  • the everyday schedule. The orphanage manages their lessons by age, and Elise is
  • having a hard time attending her classes because she is learning
  • pre-school-like teachings. She is bored to death and almost sneaks out and just
  • ditches her lessons but holds herself because being a delinquent student will
  • only bring a bad future, and a bad future means instant death. She plans to
  • become a teacher’s pet so that she can manipulate them later on. Elise is using
  • patience as a virtue method, will follow rules, and be the best student so that
  • the people around her will listen to her when the tragedy comes to them. 
  • Elise went to the library. A place where she always spends every
  • day. She reads lots of books that are installed on the shelves of the library.
  • Some of the adults ignore Elise because there are more complicated books she
  • was reading. The teachers let Elise do it because they thought she didn't
  • understand the content and she was just interested in the unique cover of the
  • book.
  • Elise read the history of the Empire in the current year. It is
  • overwhelming and scary, she refuses to believe that this world existed when a
  • flying unicorn is only natural. She also read myths, angels, former saints, and
  • the power of the Imperial Family. 
  • The current Imperial family emperor is Necephorus Aus Viten, He
  • is the most powerful Emperor in the empire. He married a Saint Empress Aelia
  • Gazelle Placidar and had a son of a crown prince. Elise remembers the wise and
  • cruel emperor with the Saint's loving wife. The author in the book “The Lazy
  • Lucky Princess” describes them as powerful beings that help Alicia after being
  • kidnapped several times. Elise didn't need to write down the date because she
  • fully remembers it like she's the one who wrote the book. Now the most curious
  • Elise is about the book for magic and the Saints. 
  • The current empire does not have a saint but appointed the
  • higher Priest which the last Saint, the empress gave her blessings. It tells
  • that the empress transferred her remaining power to the priest and became a
  • temporary Saint, which gives Elise a confusing thought. Having the amount of
  • divine power is dangerous, a vessel that is not designed for the blessing of
  • God will die and the divine power will have vanished. It never made sense to
  • Elise who knows the flow of the story. The holy church got higher authority
  • because of it and was most respected by the people.
  • Magicians on the other hand have their post in the empire. Magic
  • is for gifted people who are awakened. They are the types of people who were
  • customized using magic power. They aren’t rare but also not in the majority.
  • Magicians will use mana from magic stones, magic stones can amplify magic power
  • and only gifted people can wield it. But ancient magic power is different, it
  • consists of casting spells, and using those spells is dangerous. It requires
  • great mana and only higher magicians can do. Some ancient spells are forbidden
  • because they can only be cast by sacrificing a life.
  • The empire built an academy that was divided into two
  • departments. For magicians and ordinary people but excel to become a scholar.
  • The academy is open to everyone and does not discriminate. They valued highly
  • individuals according to their talents not in their ranks in society. The
  • nobles who are proud of themselves followed the rules because not obeying the
  • academy will be expelled and only bring shame into their family. A commoner who
  • did not follow the rules will lose the benefits given to them. The students are
  • highly respected because of the academy’s prestige.
  • Elise, engrossed in reading, thinks of the orphans in the La
  • papillonne. The author never mentioned the gifted children aside from Alicia.
  • It’s unfortunate enough that they are going to die in vain without Alicia as
  • their salvation.
  • "Elise! You're here again!" Martha the librarian
  • scolds her.
  • Elise, who is focused, jumps up because of the angry lady facing
  • her.
  • "Hi, Ms. Martha. I just like the magical cover of this
  • book!" Elise responded to Martha before she could scold her even
  • more. 
  • "The book is in the thirteen volume! Even though I can't
  • understand it fully, why do you keep taking that book?!" Martha angrily
  • told her.
  • "I promise Ms. Forbe to just look at the cover and
  • carefully take care of the pages. I even cleaned it because I'm afraid the book
  • is full of dust." Elise said actively and fake her smile at the lady
  • scolding her.
  • "Then clean everything! The shelf after that book too. You
  • always take hours here just playing! you need to be responsible that you’re
  • staying in here now!"
  • Martha is annoyed with Elise, keeping her loud voice while
  • scolding her.
  • "I understand. but promise me that I can continue to go
  • there after my lessons." Elise pleads with Martha and continues to look
  • like a puppy. 
  • "Okay. Just do some work." Martha smiling satisfyingly
  • crossed her arms. 
  • "Thank you, Martha." Elise, who is faking to be a
  • naive little girl, manages to escape the angry Martha.
  • After the library scene, Elise is going to the director's
  • office. Just in the plan, Elise becomes close to Samantha and promises her to
  • have an afternoon tea with the director. She said that she wanted to apply her
  • knowledge in the tea ceremony for Samantha but the children in the orphanage
  • are opposed to the idea at first but Elise manages to convince them by inviting
  • them from time to time. She appears as a modest, kind-hearted child to the
  • other children so that no one will be suspicious of her actions. 
  • Elise knocked at the door thrice and opened it after. She bows
  • upon entering and sees that the director is busy talking to someone she didn't
  • recognize. Samantha’s office is bigger with lots of furniture. There’s a wide
  • sofa in the center for the guest and a desk that serves as a working table. The
  • man is talking seriously to Samantha and did not bother to lift his head when
  • another child came to the director’s office.
  • Elise can't hear the conversation between them and decides to
  • join the other kids who are quietly sitting at the corner. The table is full of
  • sweets- cakes, biscuits, and cookies. The drinks are replaced by juices. The
  • tea ceremony must be canceled because of visitors, she thought.
  • Elise sits beside Alicia who is busy reading a book. Alicia as a
  • noble young lady can read complicated books and is known as an intelligent
  • child in the orphanage. She greeted the children politely then went beside
  • Alicia.
  • The time passed by and Elise was bored eating cookies. She
  • wanted to hurriedly talk to Samantha and ask for permission to access more
  • books in the library. She said it’s only for references as part of her studying
  • but that is not an excuse anymore. Elise is serious about studying this world.
  • The man’s back is facing Elise, she peeks a little to examine
  • him and as her curiosity deepens, the more he becomes familiar to her. The man
  • is wearing a very expensive black suit with black gloves and shoes. His hair is
  • wavy and dark in color. The man is also tall as she observed him at the back. A
  • déjà vu process Elise mind. A clear scenario that keeps flashing into her head…
  • causes Elise's face to lose its blood.
  • Chills quickly occupy Elise's body. Her face turned pale and
  • she’s having trouble breathing. She froze in her seat after realizing the
  • identity of the man. The Duke and a powerful magician Zachary Molten. The evil
  • villain in the story “The Lazy Lucky Princess”. He is merciless and kills the
  • children after torturing them. He’s a crazy psychopath who didn’t feel any
  • empathy for the people he killed. Molten was the one who abused Alicia and
  • almost killed her in the story.
  • Elise is threatened to tremble in her seat.
