Crownless: The Fallen World - Chapter 6
They arrived in front of a door where there were gold embedding of the viewing room 02. Hale proudly opened the door as he beamed towards the school council. They were seated on their respective seats as they glared towards the man who fashionably entered which clearly annoyed the members until they saw the towering figure of Aires behind Hale.
“Hehe. Please excuse my rudeness. I personally asked Mr. Aires to replace me for today’s meeting! You see, I have a very important event happening in my family’s manor. Please do understand my circumstances. I shall leave now. The president will arrive in 5 minutes.” Hale waved his hand, winked secretly at Aires before leaving the taller male standing on the open doorway.
The council silently observed the taller male as he scanned the whole room, seemingly judging the people around. Then his gaze landed on a swivel chair with a plaque ‘Vice-president’ on the table. He sighed in relief and sat on the soft chair, fortunately, it was near to an open window and at the right side of the president’s seat which was at the center of the long table.
The council members eyed Aires; they carefully scrutinized the hot man, sitting on a swivel chair while being sun kissed. There was a sudden flash that surprised the male, he turned to the source and found the women giggling to each other.
Then, the secretary, Axel Claiborne, approached Aires with a shy smile, fixing his thick-rimmed glasses, “Sir Aires, I have a favor to ask you… is that uhm… okay?”
Aires looked at the feeble figure of the guy, “Sure, ask away.”
“… what’s the favor all about?”
“Uhm… I want to have a strong body like yours… can you train me?” Axel’s words attracted wildfire, earning gasps as they scurried to save their precious secretary’s life, leaving their seats tumbled on the wooden floor.
Aires was dumbfounded, “Axel, was it? I can train you but are you really sure you want this?”
Axel fumbled down as he escaped from the clutches of his fellow councilmen, “Yes! I am determined to change my body for a reason!”
“Axel! You can’t disturb Sir Aires!” Their treasurer, Bianca Tycho, pulled the feeble man with worry in her eyes.
“I am determined, Bianca. I don’t want to do those things anymore. I suffered enough! I’ve been praying for an opportunity, a door, to pull me out of my damn life! Bianca, that door came exactly through that very door there!” Axel pointed at Aires and at the door of the room. “Don’t take it away from me, Bianca… please?”
Aires glanced at Axel and Bianca, “I’m not sorry to interrupt but you should let this young man decide for the future he diligently thought of. Axel, how about watching my training first then we can proceed to your training?”
Axel’s eyes sparkled as he smiled widely at Bianca. He hugged the female tightly in his arms, unaware of what he did to her, before deeply bowing to Aires.
“Bishes! Your beautiful president is finally on the runway! Oh my ghad! Mr. Sebastian Aires! I’m so fcking glad to see you here! Where’s the screwed up Hale?” A tall blonde woman sat on the president’s chair, crossed her arms below her jugs then sensually crossed her legs covered with black stockings that tightly latched on her voluptuous thighs.
“I’m glad to see you again too, Zadie McKenna. I replaced Hale’s position just now because he has ‘family matters’ to attend to which he cannot skip because he will be ‘killed’. How about you? It’s been so long since I saw you.”
“This freak! Aish! Whatever. This is just a one-time matter, tell him that I will let him slip but there will be no more for the second he skipped the meeting again.”
“And, yeah, it’s been so fcking long since we met. You grew more sturdy and strong~ I’ve been doing well as of lately. But there are serious problems that keeps on ripping my brain cells out of my head. Concerning this matter, I would love for all the council to sit down and open their Holowrist to see the graph I will be sending to you.”
The council members tapped their right wrist, along with Aires, and then hologram bracelets appeared and materialize to solid, embracing their wrist. They opened it and a small screen showed up in front of their faces. In a second, there was a black graph with a lot of colored lines rising and falling in an alarming manner.
“As you can see, the numbers of resources for our students are beginning to drop and the energy level around our school was cased as a red alert. There was a huge disturbance that will endanger this school and worst, kill all of the residences here; students, teachers, and the admins. Natural disasters have been appearing out of our protective dome in a radius of 50 km and expanding, it may or may not be the same case for the other school. But our main problem is the territories that we were assigned to. The report said that the people are beginning to lose control of their energy and ended up killing some of the residences.”
Zadie tapped her Holowrist again and pictures appeared in their screens in a slideshow. “What you all are seeing were the damages that resulted from their energy rampage. Building casualties, huge depressions, sinkholes, people bursting into blood, etcetera. The students are still not aware of this news, we will conduct a discussion first then decide what we should do and vote. Please think carefully, council.”
