Early on Friday morning, when the first ray of sunlight penetrated the terrible smog over Backlund, and then struggling to shine through the window into a house near the Brave Bar, Abner finally woke up from his coma. He took out his pocket watch expertly and glanced at it, and sighed, "Sure enough, it's still six hours."

   Although the price is not light, but his harvest is also quite rich. I opened the Pure White Eye twice last night, and for the first time successfully parsed out an auxiliary material for Sequence 8'Inference Student' from Extraordinary characteristics. Although the second time was short, I remembered hundreds of ancient Fusac words in the learning materials, and the efficiency was not high!

And more importantly, Abner found that reading learning books with the pure white eyes opened has a strong effect on the digestion of the'reader' potion. Only a few seconds last night, his potion power The appearance of involuntary spillover has completely converged.

"From the name of the reader's role, it is known to read books and broaden knowledge and knowledge. The meaning of its connotation should be to understand the laws of nature, humanities and even transcendence through reading, and achieve omnipotence because of omniscience! Of course, just a little Sequence 9 cannot reach the level of omniscience, but the nature of the role of this sequence should be like this. The subsequent reasoning students, knowers, and polymaths are actually the analysis, analysis, and imitation of all kinds of knowledge they have learned. …And my pure white eyes are obviously in line with this theme in the application process, and it is no wonder that it can promote the digestion of potions."

   "At this speed, as long as I insist on reading and learning all kinds of knowledge with pure white eyes every day, maybe half a month can digest the "reader"? Maybe I can reach Sequence 8 before the Fool comes?"

   Just as Abner was thinking about the future, there was a knock on the door.

   "It should be Kaspers here." Abner looked at the pocket watch again, and had a judgment in his heart.

   So he stood up, removed the spiritual wall, then walked out of the hallway, and opened the door carefully.

Surprisingly, there was no one outside the door. Abner was stunned at first, then blinked, the white in his eyes flashed away, and finally he looked forward to the distance, which was separated by two courtyards. I saw Kaspers on the road. He couldn't help being dumb, and laughed at himself: "As for such an exaggeration? Am I not good?"

However, Kaspers looked at Abner from the outside of the courtyard for a long time before staggering to the door of the house, and said blankly: "I have seen someone open the door unsuspectingly and get caught by the door. The monster that the Extraordinary inside has become out of control and swallowed it in one bite!

   Abner's expression froze. Before he could say anything to ease the atmosphere, the other party directly handed him a gun bag.

   "This is the revolver you want, 3 pounds!" Kaspers held the bag and said concisely and authentically.

   Abner's eyes lit up, and he hurriedly counted out the three-pound bill from his wallet and handed it over, then took the gun bag and took out the contents on the spot.

   In his eyes, he saw a silver-white revolver with a long barrel. Its handshake was made of walnut.

   In addition, there are fifty yellow bullets neatly placed in the box.

   Abner tried the empty gun, then loaded five rounds of ammunition, put the revolver back into the gun bag and hung it under the armpit inside the coat, as for the rest of the bullets he put in another pocket next to his body.

   Kaspass verified the authenticity of the banknote against the sun, and then said: "Our transaction is complete. If you have anything to do in the future, you can also go to the Brave Bar to find me."

   Abner nodded when he heard the words, and said: "Thank you so much this time. If you have any trouble in the future, you can also ask me for help. You know, I am an extraordinary now."

   Caspers sneered, and said, "Little guy, don't be too confident. Extraordinary people are like flesh and blood. Don't just rely on some abilities to be strong."

   Abner could hear that he was actually admonishing with good intentions, so he didn't worry, but secretly wrote down his promise in his heart.

   After the two talked for a while, Abner took the lead to say goodbye to each other. He had a lot of things today, and there was no time to delay.

   After Abner left, a figure appeared out of nowhere. It was a mature man with short brown hair, a white shirt and a brown vest. As soon as he appeared, he smiled at Caspers: "It seems that I didn't come in handy. Your kid is still very stable."

   Caspers shook his head and said, "I'm afraid that he will rely on his ability too much and cause more trouble..."

   The man corrected his expression when he heard the words, and said, "Kaspers, don't underestimate that kid. Although I don't know which way he is in Sequence 9, he should have discovered me just now!"

   "Really? Zariel, can you be sure?" Caspers was obviously surprised.

"Don't underestimate the observation and judgment of a detective, Caspers. Although I am not a detective through the reader's path, I can still detect his obvious nervousness and guard from the spiritual vision." Zerui At this point, Er looked at his watch, and then continued, "Okay, I have seen this little guy here, I'm going to prepare breakfast for the little guys in my family too."

   "Zerail, do you still keep those stray children?" Caspers asked sideways.

   "They are my good assistants as a detective, aren't they?" Zerel replied with a smile.

   Caspers frowned, didn't say much, watched Zaire's body slowly disappear.


   On the other side, Abner, who returned to the Eastern District, also quietly breathed a sigh of relief. He had previously opened the pure white eye subconsciously for a second when he opened the door, and then saw a figure hidden beside Caspers. He was really taken aback at the time, but fortunately, he soon realized that the hidden Beyonder should not be malicious, but came to help Caspers deal with possible out-of-control events. He was on guard secretly while completing the transaction with Caspers.

"My pure white eyes don't have spiritual vision so far, and I can't see the spiritual body for the time being, so the person should not be in a spiritual state...then it is... the blinding method of the magic master? The magician's illusion? Mental interference? Only these three companies are good at this hand at low sequence. Well, the principle of these abilities should be to influence people through the spirit. So, my pure white eyes also have resistance or spying through the spirit. The role of spells? Hey, there is too little intelligence to be sure for the time being."

   While thinking about his thoughts, Abner walked into the restaurant that he would patronize every day since the journey. He looked around, but didn't find Xio.

The lady’s investigation should be still going on... This idea came through in his mind, and Abner didn’t care. Although he knew that the so-called “double-faced man” Rosen had been a nuisance to the original father, he just inherited it. The memory of the original body is gone, but there is no feelings of the other party, and the feelings are not deep, so I am not in a hurry, just wait for the person to pay the price when facing the scene.

   After having breakfast, Abner put the study materials back home, and then he came to the nearby subway entrance.

  Becklund’s subway was born 25 years ago. It first connected the two banks of the Tasock River. Now it has expanded to several major urban areas. Of course, there are not many stations.

  Because the riverside street in St. George's area where Abner is going to be too remote, the carriage takes too long, so the subway is more convenient.

When    came to the underground, Abner looked at the price wooden sign near the ticket window:

"The peak period (from 7 to 9 in the morning, from 6 to 8 in the afternoon) runs every 10 minutes, and the remaining 15 minutes is 6 pence for the first-class seat, 4 pence for the second-class seat, and 3 pence for the third-class seat. For 6, 5 pence, the annual ticket is 8 pounds for the first-class seat, 5 pounds for the second-class seat and 10 soulers for the second-class seat.

   The price is okay, even if I take it to practice guns every day, I can afford it.

   At the same time that thought came to mind, Abner took out 4 copper pennies, handed them to the conductor, and bought a second-class ticket.

When he arrived at the platform leading to Station No. 4 in the St. George’s District, he heard the whistle reverberating like thunder and saw a huge steam locomotive pierce through the gas lamps on both sides with a sense of majestic strength. The shining, bang bang bang stopped locally.

   Its huge shape, winding body, black iron color and complicated machinery are mixed together, and it has a unique beauty.

"This really means something steampunk!" Abner couldn't help but whistle, and at the same time vomited in his heart the squid's behavior of selling dog meat in the introduction of "Lord of Mysteries", although he I also know that the steampunk in this novel is just a background embellishment, and I can't go into it, but now that he is involved in it, he finally feels the power of this steam and machinery!

   Not long after getting on the train, the steam subway began to run from slow to fast amidst the noise of clawing. Ten minutes later, it gradually decelerated again and slowly stopped next to the scheduled platform.

  Ebner hadn't reached the destination yet, so he sat in his seat and waited for it to start again. At this moment, with a strong sound of footsteps, a young girl with disheveled hair and petite figure entered the carriage. This is Hugh Dilcha, the future Miss Judgment of the Tarot Club.

   "Hugh?" Abner said in surprise, but thought in his heart: Will he be too predestined with this lady? It took him less than four days to cross over, but he met her in three days.

  Xiu obviously saw Abner at this time, so he went straight to sit down in the empty seat beside him, and said hello: "Good morning, Abner. What a coincidence, where are you going?"

   "Good morning, Miss Hugh. I am going to practice marksmanship at the shooting club on the river bank. UU reading" Abner answered honestly without thinking any more.

   "He'an it the shooting club at No. 33 He'an Street?" Hugh paused for a while, and then asked in a complicated tone.

"Yes! Miss Hugh, how do you know? Have you been there?" Abner’s question was just about to be spoken, but suddenly she found that Xio’s expression seemed a little wrong. Her expression changed again and again, mixed with nostalgia, Many different emotions, such as confusion and unwillingness, are deeply trapped in them.

   He couldn't help being shocked, and thought: Even though it may be his own words that touched Xio, as the ‘arbitrator’ of Sequence 9, how could she gobble up like this in front of someone who is not very familiar with me? This is wrong!

   At this point, Abner promptly opened the'Pure White Eyes', and then saw that there was a strange black line on Xio's forehead!

   "It turned out to be my father's property. I played there when I was a kid..." Xio didn't seem to notice his problems, and she was still mumbling about the past.

   After she turned her head unconsciously and looked at Abner's pure white pupils, she shuddered suddenly, and she was completely awake.

"Hugh, listen to me, you should sort out your emotions first and let your thoughts go! You should be cursed, and this curse may be using your extreme emotions!" Seeing her eyes calm down, Abner rubbed some Dazed, he continued, "Let's get out of the car now and find a safe place to talk again."

While    was speaking, he held Xio with one hand, reached into the gun bag and held the handle of the revolver with one hand, and then strode towards the platform while the train had not started.

  Xiu, as a wild Beyonder, although lacking in mysticism knowledge, but extremely rich in experience, did not hesitate at this time, trotting to keep up with Abner's pace.
