Noticing my status screen I found the skill that I just obtained from the skill book.
Hawk's eye huh, it's not that bad I guess. I think it will be worthwhile if I improve its Mastery, I thought to myself.
As I was pondering to myself about my new skill, I abruptly heard the exclaiming sound, and as I scrutinized my eyes towards it I was met with stares from all over the class including the vice president girl who always minds her own business...
"huhhhh, y-you h-how"
One of the students exclaimed with a bewildered look on his face and everyone else has an identical expression on their faces as well...
After seeing their expressions I directly knew that it isn't standard to get skills this easily...
I was speechless as well and didn't answer him immediately and just stared at them with a blank expression.
And like that only silence could be noticed in the room for a few moments, and after a few seconds one of the students broke the silence and spoke,
"I-It might be a coincidence right, he might have found an almost deciphered skill book, right?"
A student questioned, and listening to her other students too nodded their heads in agreement, except Roselia.
"Yup, that's right he is exceptionally fortunate to not only find a skill book but also almost deciphered at that."
Another student added and the rest just nodded their heads and gave me an envious look...
I just watched them explaining themselves and didn't interfere with their thoughts, then suddenly an unexpected voice was heard by everyone in the room,
"What type of skill did you get?" She questioned.
I scrutinized where the voice came from, and I saw the student council Vice President stare at me with her neutral face, and after listening to her other students too were glancing at me with curiosity,
"It's quite rude to ask someone about their skills, don't you think? " I replied to her with an exquisite smile on my face,
Hearing me everyone had a disappointed look on their faces, but I didn't care much about them as it was an unwritten rule to never ask an individual about their skills.
"I apologize, I was just curious and asked something extremely rude" She apologized while making a sad face.
Seeing her apologize earnestly I decided to forgive her.
"It's alright, but please abstain yourself from making the same mistake," I said with a soft forgiving smile.
"I understand" She replied with a soft smile.
Then everyone went back to whatever they were doing, but there was someone who was just staring at me throughout the interaction between us.
She was Roselia Florence...
Her gaze didn't leave me from the time I acquired the skill, I didn't meet her gaze and ignored her for now and got back to Flipping the books.
There were thousands of books in this room and finding a skill book is as hard as finding a needle in a haystack, I was quite lucky to find it so easily.
I continued flipping the books and I found most of them were just journals kept by some common ancient people and weren't valuable.
I also found some handwritten notes of some magicians and found them quite beneficial, It was about applying magic runes on their bodies and casting through them I was speechless reading its technique.
They used their magic by creating magic circles and they were ranked as a class magician, in the notes that I was reading he appears to be an 8th-class magician and seems to be quite strong,
"This will be useful," I thought to myself after flipping that book.
I can try applying the magic circle around my body as well but for now, I am not strong enough and if I had any backlash from it my body couldn't handle it, for now, I will have to research more about this.
I thought to myself and started flipping books again...
But merely after a few moments of flipping books, The book I just flipped started radiating bright light again, and soon disappeared from my hand and its information was ingrained in my mind.
It was a skill book again, is it so easy to get skills? I thought to myself while I closed my eyes till I wrapped up the whole information from the skill book then I slowly opened my eyes but didn't inspect my new skill, for now, because I knew that I Fucked up big time.
I never anticipated that I would be able to find skill books this easily and two at that in just a matter of time, In the huge classroom full of books I stumbled upon two skill books in just the significance of the moment.
Should I be happy? I thought to myself and raised my head to inspect other students' reactions, and sure enough, their expressions were what I expected.
I don't have any explanation for this juncture, yup I was like someone who was caught red-handed while doing something awry.
I just gave them a wry smile and silence befell in the classroom yet again...
"Whyyyy, why god why I have been in this course for at least 2 years, and I didn't even get a glimpse of any skill book, how can this newbie who is joining just today get 2 skill books and almost deciphered books at that" Some not-so-sharp student who seems to be a 3rd-year screamed and continued,
"This is unfair the world is unfair, the strong getting stronger and weak getting weaker, Ahhh"
He screamed in frustration and got other students' attention towards him,
"Idiot that's not the point here, the main point is why would anyone leave an almost deciphered skill book and not use it themselves?"
she hit the idiotic 3rd year at the back of his head and said it out loud.
Hearing her other students too nodded their heads in agreement,
"It must be because they aren't compatible with these skills, and they can't take these skill books outside of the classroom, so basically they can't sell them too. I think that's the reason why they just left it at that "
Roselia Florence thought out loud allowing everyone to hear her.
"There are skills like that too?" a student questioned,
"Of course, there are many skills like that. For example, think that your element is water so, of course, you couldn't learn skills related to fire."
"If that's the case then they could have submitted the skill book to the academy and gotten some reward, couldn't they?" a student questioned.
"Hmm, that's right so it means that the skill book mustn't have much value even for the academy to give them rewards so they must have just left it"
Roselia still tried to defend me by saying whatever nonsense...
Everyone in the classroom started giving me a suspicious look, So now I decided to go for the plan B that came up in my mind while they were discussing among themselves.
"Yes that's right, the skills I got aren't much use for a student" I spoke as I decided to proceed with my plan.
They don't seem to believe me and were still staring at me as if asking for an explanation, so I explained.
"The skill I got is 'The Sex Art For Men' and as for the other skill I don't think I should say it out loud because I think it's inappropriate" I answered.
Hearing me everyone in the classroom has a shocked expression while the girls in the classroom had blushes on their faces as boys kept their mouths wide open in amazement...
I had no other choice but to lie because it will be bad for me if anyone got to know that I can decipher runes language this easily,
"WOW! That's an awesome skill, why wouldn't anyone want that?" The idiotic 3rd-year student exclaimed loudly.
"The ones who were deciphering these skill books might be girls" I made an excuse.
"Hmm, that makes sense" He nodded his head in agreement.
The idiotic senior of mine seems to buy it and soon he started staring at the girls who were still blushing in embarrassment and spoke,
"If you girls by chance find anything like that in the future please leave it to me"
Hearing him made girls even more embarrassed and the student beside him hit his head again,
"Ow, what was that for"
They started bickering among themselves, and everyone seems to drop the topic of skill books,
Seeing that I sighed in relief and thought to myself while shaking my head, 'YOUTHS!'
It was easy to fool them but I can't fool everyone, they might still have some doubts but they decided to let it go because of their embarrassment,
And I can't fool Roselia Florence as well, I thought to myself and glanced at her, and sure enough, she was frowning at me.
"This will be troublesome" I muttered to myself under my breath...
