As time went by, I am finally five months old today.
Normally, it took at most a year for a baby to learn how to walk. But I can do more at my current age. Not only can I walk, but I can run and jump as well.
I see. Having your previous life memories intact is a perk in itself. I mean… I can learn in advance the things that are usually impossible at my current age.
Sometimes, my mother spoke the language I can understand but sometimes she also spoke the language I know. I am certain she can understand me if I talk to her, but I better not do that at my current age to avoid freaking her out.
I don know about the standard or the normal age when a baby can learn to speak in this world, but if I freak my mother out because of it, she may throw me away and leave me alone.
Im not confident I can survive alone in my current situation. So in the meantime, I will have to play the safest route to avoid unnecessary trouble.
Regardless, her name is Elena too. Not only do they look alike, but they also have the same voice and the same name. I wonder if she is my upperclassman Elena.
I can confirm it right now because what I know about this world is only superficial. But seeing that reincarnation is possible and magic exists in this world, theres a high possibility that transmigration in this world also exists.
In that sense, there is a high probability that they were one person only.
Oh, right. I remembered something. A few days before the graduation of senior students in high school, I remembered there had been a commotion in our school back then. It was about the disappearance of some students in our school. I heard people talk about abduction and kidnapping at that time.
Sadly, I didn discover what truly happened in that incident. I could not even say if what I heard was true or not because my interest at that time was not fully in it.
In regard to Senior Elena, there were only a few times when I had a short interaction with her. They were few that could only be counted with fingers in my one hand. Honestly, those were just one of the rarest interaction moments that happened between us. But the reasons for those interactions were just trivial ones.
Anyway, in school, you would be so lucky already if you could exchange a few words with Senior Elena. Not only was she the top belle in our school, but she was also a top student as well. So of course, her popularity in school was undeniable. How ironic it was to become a child of someone that look exactly the same as her.
In the next school year, I was unable to continue because of what happened to me in the summer of that year. So, I wasn able to learn more about the disappearance incident.
I also lost all my connections regarding school since then.
It is still not enough to confirm whether Mother Elena and Senior Elena are one person only.
I stopped thinking and looked around. Its very quiet. I got up and peeked outside through the window.
It is very bright outside. The melodious chirps of the birds are what entered my ears. They were the source of music to ease my boredom.
Outside, only trees I could see wherever I looked.
Sometimes, Mother Elena took me out to sunbathe in the early morning. But we only went to the yard and never wandered far away.
I came to know that we
e surrounded by trees. It looks like we live inside a forest. I could not spot any neighborhood either, so it was possible that we were alone in this place. Aside from the noise coming from birds and insects, no other noises I could hear.
Now that I remember…
Im just curious. Im yet to see the face of my responsible father. Perhaps, my mother is a single parent, or maybe the father is working somewhere far away. Well, I don have any high expectations with regard to parents anyway.
It doesn matter to me.
The only good thing about my current situation is that somehow Mother Elena is taking care of me unlike my mother before.
Still, it was very early to judge. After all the bad things that happened to me, I grew to have less concern with anything related to relationships.
In my years of solitude, I came to get used to being alone and independent. However, that is only fine if I were an adult. In my current self, I think I should depend on my mother for the time being.
Currently, Mother Elena is not in the house. She went to a place she called a Guild. I wondered what guild she meant. Perhaps adventurers guild like those in fantasy stories that I read.
Every time she came back home, she was carrying supplies for our daily needs.
I jumped back inside my crib.
Sitting in a lotus posture inside it, I closed my eyes and tried sensing prana in my surroundings.
That day when I fell sick, Mother Elena mentioned how unconsciously my body was absorbing prana. She also looked very surprised at that time while staring at me with her eyes full wide.
The expression on her face at that time told me that it didn normally happen. That alone tells me that I have an affinity with magic.
My desire to become the absolute villain in this life is coming closer.
If someone asked me what is an absolute villain?
For me, an absolute villain is a villain who has immense power that is unmatched and can never be defeated. A frighteningly strong entity that even an omnipotent god could not harm.
Someone on an outerversal level in cosmology and dimensionality power-scaling. Haha. I don know if such power really exists somewhere. Well, well, that might be over the top or very exaggerated. But my desire to become the absolute villain wasn only on a level of a mere dream. Mine is limitless, endless, or boundless.
I am serious.
”Power… please bestow me… ” I said with a dramatic expression.
Sadly, after almost an hour of sitting, I still could not sense it. I could not sense the prana that Mother Elena mentioned before. How can I not sense it if even my body can subconsciously absorb it? This is just so out of sense.
My sore shoulders dropped dejectedly.
From a lotus position, I raised one of my knees and rested my elbow on it.
If someone sees me in my current posture, they will definitely be shocked. This is not common for a five-month-old baby to do. While in that posture, I looked at the empty space that was in front of me and mumbled to myself.
”Maybe theres a trigger to it. ”
I pondered and tried to think what it was. What it was that I needed to do. Maybe I need to open my meridians first, or maybe I need to temper my foundation first.
As I was in a deep conversation with myself, I came to remember something.
”Right, Mother Elena brought a book yesterday. Lets check if I can find anything useful there. ”
I quickly jumped out of my crib. However, my hand that was pivoting on its railing suddenly slipped. I lost my balance in the process.
No! My head will hit the edge!, I screamed internally.
My eyes widened at that moment as my vision was zooming toward the crib railings sharp corner.
Honestly, if my head hits the edge of the crib, my head will crack and it will certainly cause the end of my life.
At my current age, my skull and bones were still very fragile to any impact.
I groaned. A second after realizing I am alive, I quickly touched my head. Weird. My head seems fine. I didn feel any pain on it either.
In fact, it was my back that landed first on a soft cushion.
Wait… soft cushion? I quickly looked around me and noticed something unbelievable.
”Where is the crib? ” I asked.
The crib… it disappeared…
