35 The Learning Process

Ferron walked down the dark wooden staircase. Confusing him as he was on the upper floor. It only took a minute to reach the end where it opened up to a large dark room. Ferron walked a few steps in, turned in a circle admiring the giant room under the school.

Suddenly a blinding light filled his vision. As he blinked the spots out of his eyes, he saw what was sitting in the dark.

A laboratory, filled with different kinds of beakers, vials, and different kinds of lab equipment littered on the many tables. The vials were filled with many different kinds of liquids, with tubes interconnecting them.

"Over here." Ferron turned and saw Uriel standing beside a door, Ferron rushed over and stood patiently for Uriel to go in first. The room was much smaller but it was filled with desks and chairs, at one end of the room was a whiteboard and a projector that was standing in front of a table.

"Alright take a seat wherever you want and I'll begin telling you what this is about." Ferron sat down in the front and nodded his head to signal he was ready.

"This is the fourth trial, as you know. Here you will pick up the essence of being a Harbinger." Before Uriel could continue Ferron stepped in.

"Wait, hold up. Did you say harbinger?"

"You didn't know? Oh, right the others call it Reaper. There are many names for it such as Reaper, harbinger, guider of souls, fates hand. There's many more but those are just examples of what mortals have come up with."

In Ferrons head it made sense, throughout history, there were famous figures that gave prophecies, and guided famous heroes. Were they Reapers in disguise?

Uriel continued to explain from where he left off. "The usual rules for the trial will also apply here. Three parts. First will be teaching you about being a harbinger, second will be testing you, then lastly we will be doing live testing. Hopefully, you can pass these tests on your first or second try. Or else this trial will take you quite a long time to finish." Uriel put some stress on his last words.

For Ferron, this was his trial. As an ex-university student, he knew how to manage his time and create study plans.

"Alright, shall we start?" With a clap of his hands, a large notebook and a mechanical pencil dropped onto the desk. Ferron opened it up and prepared to write. Not surprising Ferron anymore as he had seen a giant winged lizard as tall as a building try and attack him. The lights in the front of the room darkened and the projector turned on.

"In the beginning, there was only nothingness." Uriel started talking as the projector played a series of pictures turning his words into pictures.

"The void as it was known, held nothing. until a spark of light was made by an unknown being. That spark of light was my father, but with light, there always must be an opposing force to create balance. So that being made darkness, a more concentrated version of chaos. My uncle was born from that darkness."

"Together they wandered the nothingness, trying to use their powers to make something. Again and again, they tried always failing until one day. They used their powers together making the first world.

A planet filled the projector, it was a desolate landscape, filled with sand and rocks. Not a sign of life to be found. Uriel continued while Ferron jotted down notes.

"They continued to experiment leading to the creation of space and time. Planets were made and destroyed, races were coming to life, all fashioned in gods eyes. Soon, my father and his brother decided on one thing. To make the perfect race. A race that would continue to evolve becoming more and more complex each time."

"After countless tries, failure after failure. Millions of years passed until a small organism came to life, on a delicate planet pushed deep to the far reaches of the created universe....."

The class lasted until the sun went down before Uriel stopped talking. Ferron wrote well over 200 pages but as much as he wrote his notebook seemed to have the same amount of pages no matter how much he flipped.

Before Ferron left Uriel called out to him. "Ferron, my brother told me that your egg was about to hatch. Bring it here so that you can keep a closer eye on it. I have an incubator set up."

"I understand, thank you." Ferron turned around and went back up the stairs exiting the hidden stairwell. He noticed Aura sitting on the couch, just like in the morning, she didn't even twitch when Ferron walked past.

Ferron rolled his eyes and felt a little jealous since she could laze around all day while he had to work his butt off. Ferron continued to walk out of the University and into his dorm. His floor was much louder than before but when he stepped out of the elevator the noise died down a bit. A few doors were open with a few people talking to each other, but when the elevator doors opened whispers started to break out.

Ferron calmly walked out, putting on an uncaring face as he walked to his room, unlocked the door and went in, closing the door behind him. A few seconds after closing the door whispers broke out as to who the newcomer was. Few brave souls walked up and knocked at the door adjacent to his, the girl who was looking through the peephole of her door jumped back and steadied her breathing before opening the door with an angry expression on her face.

"What do you want, I'm studying."

A small 5'4" boy laughed while rubbing the back of his head. "Sorry Heather, but could you give us some info on the new guy across from you?"

"The hell would I know about him, I've only seen him a couple times and never talked to him." Her heart started to beat rapidly as memories of earlier started coming back.

"Ah ok then, sorry for disturbing you." He giggled and left along with a few other boys.

Heather rolled her eyes and closed the door, her cheeks turning a deep shade of red, as she sat against the door. She used her hands to wave her face, she got up and went back to her desk and continued to study while talking to herself.

"I'm just curious, nothing else. I don't like him, I've barely even talked to him. I don't even know if he's a good guy. Why are they asking me!" Her pencil lead broke as she was writing causing a small mistake. Heather grew more frustrated as time went by, her roommates came a few minutes after the boys left and seeing her expression they immediately went to their separate rooms. They knew what would happen if they talked to her now.

Ferron was slightly panicky as this was his first time being looked at by so many people at once. He looked calm on the outside but his mind was in a state of chaos, he only calmed down after he jumped onto his bed. As he didn't need sleep daily he took out his notebook and flipped through it going over what he learned today, it fascinated Ferron to learn what had really made the universe. Modern physics was only a drop of water in an ocean.

Ferron finished going over his notes well into the night and decided to get some rest even if he didn't need it. He closed his eyes and fell into a light sleep.
