She Professed Herself The Pupil Of The Wiseman (LN) Volume 1 Chapter 12 / Chapters List

“Just what is the meaning of this!?”

While looking completely baffled, Mira stared at her own hands that were now literally passing through the black case.

“As you see, the game world may have turned into a real one, but we’re still bound by its original rules. Considering the Vanity Case is a non-transferable item, you can’t hand it to anyone else. In addition, items for which you have authority over, like your Master Key, can be given to others; however, no one is able to steal or take them by force.”

“Basically, unless I get one of those cases by myself, I am pretty much stuck with this appearance, right?”

The young girl drew her face closer to the phantom-like item and squinted.

“Exactly. Anyway, you already know the harsh truth, but I must remind you that you can’t access the cash shop anymore.”

“Oh hell…”

Upon this simple exchange of words, Mira dropped her entire body on the sofa and stayed there, lying face down. Her mind, that was now assaulted with the desire to simply give up, began searching desperately for something, anything to get her out of that situation.

“Are there any exceptions to the rules?”

Clinging to a tiny sliver of hope, the little girl had the strength to turn her head towards Solomon.

“Never heard of anything like that in the thirty years I’ve been here.”

“No way…”

It was an answer backed by three decades’ worth of experiences, enough to quickly shatter any hopes she had left. Trying to escape into the land of dreams, Mira closed her eyelids as she returned her face to the couch and started reminiscing of the magnificent figure she once had.

“You know, I really want to help you on that matter, in any way possible… but there isn’t anything I can do.”

“Yeah, right. I bet that deep down you must be just laughing at my current situation.”

Mira was now the perfect image of a kid throwing a tantrum, the incessant and negative thoughts in her mind permeating her words while she grumbled on the sofa.

“Oh no, of course not. Considering you’ve only spent a day in this world, you didn’t forget about the state of our country, right? You are one of the Elders who made this kingdom stand on par with the other countries, I would never laugh at… what happened to you.”

When Solomon threw a glance at the girl lying on the couch, he endured the urge to burst out in laughter and forced a poker face. However, Mira didn’t miss the slight trembling of his lips.

“It is just as I thought! You are really making fun of me.”

“Oops, my bad. But the fact that I want to help you still holds true.”

Upon correcting himself, the king stared at Mira while showing his usual and gentle smile. In return, however, he only received a displeased stare from the girl.

“Ahhh, by the way, did you hear about the other sages? Such important people are still missing…”

Solomon averted his gaze as he tried to change the subject. The matter was the greatest incident that happened in Arkite Kingdom, where Dunbalf disappeared and, less than a year later, all other Elders suffered the same fate.

“Yes, Graia told me. From
