Chapter 1 - The One So Called "An Ordinary Day" [Othman]
It was an ordinary September day, early in the morning. But not for Othman. The switches of the secret passage to the archives stopped working, and Severin is nowhere to be found, again. Walking along the corridor of classrooms, Othman heard Master Xivarius' loud voice, expelling a student who apparently was sleeping on the desk out of classroom. It was of course, no one other than Vangelis, nicknamed "The Adventurer" as he jumps at every possible event that might turn into a quest. He stormed right to his mentor's room down the corridor without noticing Othman at all. But where should Othman start looking for Severing? He may try visiting Icarius, but Othman doubted whether Icarius is able to perceive anything that is not a book. Or he could try visiting arena and see if Master Horatio, the combat teacher, has seen him or not. Other options are visiting the storeroom, mess hall or garden.

Bah!  Unacceptable.  Where is that wandering buffoon!  Shuffling through the corridors, Othman pondered just where to find his missing trouble maker when the explosion of angry words shattered his train of thought.  As the slumbering "Adventurer" barrelled past him, Othman confusedly tried to piece together what was transpiring and a thought struck him.  Making his way to where Vangelis had disappeared, he knocked on the door, hoping the lad was available and willing to do some legwork for the tired librarian.

As Othman raised his hand to knock the door, he heard Master Malvaren's lecturing tone from inside. "...now go get these seals, and don't disappoint me this time, Vangelis." Othman knocked the door, which in turn responded with a clear "Come in." answer of Malvaren. As he entered the wide room, Vangelis stepped back from his mentor's desk to sit down on one of the seats nearby, and Malvaren greeted Othman with a smile. "Greetings Master Othman, how may I help you?"

Othman offered the congenial Master a deferential bow and said in his quiet voice, "I was hoping I might be able to borrow your young lad here.  It seems my own assistant has decided to hide from me and I might need someone with faster legs than my own to try and track him down.  It shouldn't take long.  I would be most appreciative."  Offering his smile that, in all honesty, he hardly felt, Othman prayed that the Master would relinquish the boy.

"There couldn't be a better timing, Master Othman. Actually I was thinking that this lad definitely needed some practical action. And about seals, well, we will see about that. Go Vangelis, and see if you can be of any help to Master Othman. Maybe you can actually make him believe that you are worthy of his seal too."

With this sentence, Othman realised what he was talking about. It was those 'seals' of approval for final examination. But still after hearing it, Valentis are going to gather seals to grant his entrance to the final exam? Othman certainly doubted that this happy-go-lucky boy could even ward of a venom spider, let alone holding his ground against crystal caves' dangerous crystal crabs. Well, Othman usually measured common sense, thinking and decision taking capabilities of those who came for a seal, so it's not actually Othman's problem whether this child fights well enough.

Valentis: "How may I be of help to you, Master Othman?"
