Chapter 4 Getting Acquainted((gravityn0vels))

The morning sun shone and the crimson faded away.
As Abner sat up and looked at the golden yellow light that spilled into the room through the window, he thumped his stiff shoulders.
He was in a good mood.
Although the constant opening of his pure white eyes had made him feel a bit down, he had finally analyzed the complete formula for the “Reader” potion after a night of hard work (in a coma).

“Reader, Sequence 9.
Main materials: a pair of Galore fish pupils, 15g brain slices of Manhas monkey.
Auxiliary materials: 80ml of pure water, 10g of thread ball grass powder, 1 petal of pure white elf flower, 10 calamus juice.”

Galore fish should not be a rare species.
After all, even the original owner, who was an ordinary person, had heard of it.
However, Abner had never seen it.
The pupils of this fish should not be difficult to obtain in the extraordinary circle… As for Manhas monkeys, they were mentioned in the inherited memory as monsters in horror stories.
But since the pure white eye had analyzed it, that meant this monster really existed… Well, he would have to ask about it in the extraordinary circle.

As for where to find the extraordinary circle, Abner had already planned.
Ever since he remembered the detailed records of potion formulas in the novel, he had been thinking about how to sell a few copies in order to improve his quality of life and raise money for materials.
According to the information recorded in the novel “Lord of the Mysteries,” there were two extraordinary gatherings during this time period that were relatively safe.
One was an information and material exchange meeting held by Mr.
A of the Aurora Society, which Hugh and Fors often visited.
The other was an extraordinary trade fair organized by Mr.
“Eye of Wisdom,” which the protagonist Klein had come into contact with.

Of the two party circles, Abner was more inclined to attend the latter.
First, the organizer of the party, the real identity of old Mr.
“Eye of Wisdom,” was the well-known detective Isengard Stanton.
He was connected to the Church of the God of Knowledge and Wisdom and was considered a small official in the Loen Kingdom.
His character was also decent, making him more reliable than the Aurora God Envoy, who would go crazy if he didn’t move.
Secondly, the novel “Lord of the Mysteries” recorded the place and time of the gathering held by the “Eye of Wisdom” in detail, making it easier to find than the Aurora Society trade fair, which was only mentioned a few times.
Finally, the Aurora Society had an evil god willing to cause trouble in the background, and Abner, who had a golden finger, felt quite guilty.
He didn’t want to reveal his secrets to the true Creator prematurely.

“Well, it’s almost eight o’clock.
I’ll go out and buy a copy of the “Becklund Morning Post” first and see if there will be a recent party.
If not, I’m afraid I’ll have to get a job first to make money.
I only have 1 pound and 5 soule left in my pocket.
I’m afraid I won’t even be able to eat in a few days, let alone buy materials.” As he focused on his thoughts, Abner packed up his ceremony materials, washed up, and left.

He bought a copy of the “Becklund Morning Post” from a newspaper boy on the street and turned directly to the fifth page.
There, he saw an advertisement for Ernst & Co., which was the secret signal for the “Eye of Wisdom” in the novel to notify the party!

“This is really a coincidence.
Let me take a closer look… The quotations are 8 pence per liter for flour, 1 soli per pound for butter, 7 pence per pound for lard, 3 pence per pound for butter, and 8 soli per pound for Marquis Black tea leaves.
That means there will be a gathering of Extraordinary people at 8 o’clock tomorrow night.
The signal to open the door is 8 heavy knocks, followed by 1 light knock, with an interval of 7 long and 1 short knocks.
The numbers 3 and 8 have no meaning.”

Abner sorted out the content according to the interpretation method that the “Eye of Wisdom” had personally said in the novel, and he felt a little excited in his heart, feeling that his luck was really good.
At least he didn’t have to work part-time.

With a joyful mood, he came to the restaurant where he had eaten breakfast the day before.
As soon as he opened the door, he couldn’t help being taken aback.
A conflict was erupting in the restaurant at this time.

It would be inaccurate to say that it was a conflict.
What caught Abner’s eyes was a girl with messy hair who was only 1.5 meters tall and three burly men over 1.8 meters tall.
But what was surprising was that the three big men were already lying on the ground with bruised noses and swollen faces, while the girl calmly grabbed the collar of one of the big men and asked, “Who told you to come and arrest me?”

Although she was not tall, she had such a strong majesty that even the restaurant waiters who were not close couldn’t help but take a few steps back.
To his surprise, although the big man being questioned was sweating, he withstood the majesty and did not reveal anything.

Abner was very surprised when he saw this scene.
These people were obviously ordinary people, otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to beat Miss “Judgment,” who had just been promoted to Sequence Ninth.
Then, how did they resist extraordinary abilities?

Although he was a little curious, Abner obviously didn’t intend to delve into it.
He could only be considered a half Extraordinary right now, and he didn’t think he had the ability to get involved in such things.

“However, I have met Hugh here for two consecutive days, so it is considered fate.
Why don’t we chat and get to know each other later?” Abner thought.

Hugh also noticed Abner as he walked into the restaurant at this time.
Although she was a little vigilant, most of her energy was spent on interrogating the three gangsters.
Although the failure of her ability surprised her, her rich experience made her immediately change the method of inquiry to the “physical” method.

Following the screams of the three men, they finally couldn’t resist Hugh’s “majesty” and began to explain.
It turns out that these three people are Schick, a consultant hired by “Double-Faced Man” Rosen.

This consultant named Sigg is the “double-faced man” Rosen who took refuge with him about seven or eight months ago, and has won the trust of the other party.
He can mobilize most of Rosen’s thugs! He heard that someone was inquiring about the badge last night and immediately sent people to investigate.
Who would have thought that these three people would take it upon themselves to take Hugh back after seeing that she was just a little girl.


Their voices were not loud, but Abner, who had more insight than ordinary people, could hear clearly.
His brows furrowed instantly, and he instinctively analyzed and reasoned: “Badge? Could it be the extraordinary item that Hugh found? Used for contract fraud? If these three people are telling the truth, it seems that the key person in this incident is not that Rosen, but is more likely to be Schick! This person is likely to be an Extraordinary! Then the question arises, why should an Extraordinary serve as a consultant under a little gang leader? One possibility is that Rosen is a more powerful Extraordinary, making him surrender, but it doesn’t quite fit the facts.
The other possibility is that this Sigg is playing you! And if he is playing such a role, it’s likely that he is a Sequence 8 scammer.
Not only defrauding ordinary people, but also deceiving collaborators, and even misleading and deceiving potential investigators! Hey, thinking about it this way, it may not be true to say that people were sent here because of the badge… Well, I’d better remind her, just as an entry point for talking.”

Although these are just speculations by Abner without any obvious evidence, even if the reasoning is wrong, he can remind Hugh and let her be less in danger.
In the original book, she might just go to jail because of this case, but now she may not be really unscathed.
This girl is sometimes reckless.

On the other side, after interrogating the gang members, Hugh ordered the waiter to call the police from the street, and handed over the three to the authorities.
As the victim and a woman, she passed the test after being interrogated briefly for two or three sentences, and watched the three people be taken away by the police.

Just when she was about to leave the restaurant, she suddenly saw Abner coming straight over.
The other party smiled slightly and said, “Miss Arbiter, can I have the honor to buy you a cup of coffee?”

Hugh was clearly taken aback by being approached by someone for the first time, but on the surface she asked cautiously: “Who are you? What can I do for you?”
“I don’t really matter who I am, but I have my own opinions and inferences about what happened just now, which may be helpful to you.” Abner said straightforwardly, and there was no need to beat around the bush with someone like Miss Hugh.

Hugh was a little surprised when she heard this, but after a moment of hesitation, she nodded and sat down at a table again.
Abner took the opportunity to sit opposite her, and ordered two cups of coffee, two slices of bread, and a piece of butter under the reluctant gaze of the waiter.

While waiting for the meal, Hugh asked, “Are you an Extraordinary, too? An official? What do you want to say to me?”

Because of yesterday’s inexplicable induction, Hugh was actually very wary of Abner.

Abner shook his head, and said somewhat vaguely: “I’m not an official, but just a fan who knows something about extraordinary things… Just now I heard your conversation, and I heard some problems, and I want to remind you, miss.” He didn’t lie, so far he is not a real Extraordinary.

Hugh didn’t believe that the other party was just a lover, and concluded that he was an Extraordinary, and the sequence was still above her, but she didn’t point it out, and instead asked directly: “What do you want to tell me?”

“I understand that it’s just that ordinary gangsters got a special item and used it to do evil.”

Abner didn’t make a fool of himself either.
After sorting out and polishing his previous reasoning, he explained it to Hugh in detail.

Hugh was a little confused, and asked suspiciously: “Con artist? Impersonation? What does this mean?”

“So you don’t know how to impersonate…” Abner patted his forehead and thought: “Negligence.
It’s true that Hugh doesn’t know how to act.
It was taught to her by Fors after she joined the Tarot Society.
But forget it, anyway, she has been playing the ‘arbiter’ unconsciously, so it’s okay to tell her in advance.”

“What’s the acting method?” Hugh didn’t know why, but only felt that he was a fake Extraordinary.

Abner thought for a while, imitating the tone of the fool in the novel who confuses members of the Tarot Society, and said: “For potions, it’s not mastering, but digestion.
It’s not digging, but acting.
The name of the potion is not just a symbol, but an image.
It is the ‘key’ of digestion.”

After finishing speaking, Abner didn’t want to explain further, so he changed the subject and said: “If my inference is correct, this matter is obviously beyond your ability.
You’d better find an opportunity to report the clues to the official transcendents.
With their expertise, I’m afraid they can see more problems.
Reporting is the special skill of the future Lord of Mysteries, and I don’t mind using it in advance…”

Hugh wanted to ask a few more questions about the acting method, but it can be seen that Abner is unwilling to say more, so she can only purse her lips and ask again: “Sir, why do you help me and tell me this knowledge and deduction?”
