The Tale of Hero Alice's Social Death (Pantsu Hero Alice) Chapter 306 - It Has Already Taken on Andusia’s Shape

How surprising. The Royal Magic Tower has its own internal network.

After taking a seat in the Royal Magic Tower's centermost library, Alice tried to access the internet with her phone and found that the tower had a network that was exclusively for internal use.

Moreover, the tower's internal network seemed to have a special layer of security added to it. Any content downloaded from it would be automatically deleted from the user's device so long as it was brought out of the tower. Although Alice had no idea how this security feature worked, it would more or less prevent people from spreading the Royal Magic Tower's information to the outside world.

While this wouldn't stop people who were resolved to steal information from the Royal Magic Tower, it did, in a way, show how much importance the Rhine Kingdom had placed on the Royal Magic Tower. So, any would-be thieves would have to first consider whether they could evade the Rhine Kingdom's inspection and endure the Rhine Kingdom's harsh judgment, should they be caught.

Of course, the Rhine Kingdom wasn't foolish to the point where it would put absolute faith in such a loose security system or its ability to discover and apprehend people who have stolen information from the Royal Magic Tower. As evidence, after Alice browsed around the Royal Magic Tower's network for a while, she didn't come across anything that looked like it would be considered a state secret.

In reality, most state secrets wouldn't even be kept on the internet or servers many people could access. Instead, the main method the various kingdoms used to store highly confidential information was by engraving encrypted magic patterns onto durable magic stones. This was also the method used by the various kingdoms' historians to pass down important parts of history. Not only could this method ensure that information could be securely passed down for thousands of years, but it could also prevent others from stealing the stored information easily.

But as I expected, the taboos kept here completely differ from the March Academy's practical taboos. After downloading a library app from the internal network, Alice browsed the library's catalog and found that most of the taboos kept here were different from the March Academy's taboo collection. Overall, it was worth investing time in learning the Royal Magic Tower's taboos. "It seems we'll have to spend a few days here, Andusia."

As soon as Alice finished speaking, she suddenly realized that Andusia was no longer sitting on her shoulder. Because Lilith was worried that Andusia might fall off her shoulder and break apart, she promptly parted ways with Alice after getting her hands on Andusia, saying that she was going home to prepare a figurine cabinet specifically for Andusia.

Essentially, Lilith was trying to say that she was going to play with her newly-acquired figurine for today, so she couldn't continue keeping Alice company for today, and she would only meet up with Alice again during tomorrow's comic convention.

So that's why the side of my left ear suddenly feels so much more silent, Alice thought and sighed as she raised her right hand to massage her left shoulder.

Because of her frequent interactions with Andusia, Alice had already grown used to consulting Andusia whenever she encountered problems. Even if she didn't face any problems, she would still chat with Andusia from time to time. Now that Andusia was gone, Alice couldn't help but feel a little strange. After all, it had already been quite some time since she had truly moved around alone.

Since Alice was sneaking into the Royal Magic Tower this time, she naturally had to maintain a low profile. So, aside from Andusia, Alice didn't bring anyone else to the Rhine Kingdom with her.

Luna had also voiced her wish to follow Alice, but having more people involved in this infiltration would obviously increase the risk of being caught. Not to mention, Lilith had only promised Alice to prepare one counterfeit ID. Alice also wasn't certain whether Lilith could prepare more. So, she had no choice but to refuse Luna's request to come with her.

Although Alice felt a little unaccustomed to this situation, she knew she would return to her original world once she took care of the Demon King's Power. So, even if she was unaccustomed to this lonely feeling, she had to work hard to get used to it again. She shouldn't get used to Andusia's presence on her shoulder.

Speaking of which, it's already been close to two weeks since the Milu Rabbit fell unconscious… It hasn't even woken up to eat or poop. I wonder when it will regain consciousness?

When thinking about Andusia, Alice suddenly remembered that she still had an unconscious Milu Rabbit tied to her waist. To avoid exposing her identity, Alice specially wore a loose double-layer dress and hid the Milu Rabbit between the two layers. Although others could still see the Milu Rabbit's outline if they looked carefully, nobody would stare at her skirt under normal circumstances.

Anyway, ever since the Milu Rabbit had eaten the ashes of the burnt Soul Mark Scroll around half a month ago, it had fallen unconscious and remained unconscious until this day. Although Alice had taken the Milu Rabbit to a veterinarian for a check-up during this period, the analysis she got from the vet was: "Everything is normal physiologically. You can even say it is very healthy, judging by how much harder its skull is compared to the average Milu Rabbit. Maybe there is something wrong with its spirit." It was a rather pointless analysis.

While nobody was paying attention, Alice secretly lifted the outer layer of her two-layer dress and snuck a look at the Milu Rabbit.

Sure enough, the Milu Rabbit was still sleeping soundly. Although it hadn't eaten anything for half a month, it was still surprisingly healthy.

Alice couldn't tell what was keeping the Milu Rabbit alive and healthy. The only explanation she could think of was that the Soul Mark Scroll's ashes contained some energy, and this energy was being used to offset the energy the Milu Rabbit consumed while it was unconscious.

Regardless, after verifying that the Milu Rabbit was safe as always, Alice began scouring the Royal Magic Tower's internal network for the information she wanted.

Alice's main goal in visiting the Royal Magic Tower was to uncover the culprit impersonating Second Prince Etoria and trying to drag the demons into the Rhine Kingdom's royal affairs. In that case, she would first have to seek out the demon spy operating in the Royal Magic Tower. Although Alice didn't know what kind of identity the spy was going by in the tower, if her guess wasn't wrong, the spy should be operating under an identity similar to the one Frosette used in the March Academy.

Fortunately, Alice's guess was correct, and she found her target in no time.

Magic Tower Know-It-All… These people really have no creativity… Alice couldn't help but chuckle when she looked at the name she found on the "Mihla Forum," a dedicated forum in the Royal Magic Tower's internal network.

Alice was 99% certain that this "Magic Tower Know-It-All" was the demon spy, mainly because this nickname was essentially the same as the one Frosette had used in the March Academy. Moreover, considering the information gathering abilities of these demon spies, she felt that it was reasonable for them to act as information brokers.

Fortunately, this Magic Tower Know-It-All had left his contact method and his usual place of operation. So, after making a record of these things, Alice decided to go and meet with this person.

Novel Notes

Made a change to Chapter 262:

Original:
Several thousand years ago, the psychokinetic and spirit attributes had yet to be separated. So, the first comment should be referring to using psychokinetic-attributed mana to cast this taboo.

Edited:
Several thousand years ago, the mind and spirit attributes had yet to be separated. So, the first comment should be referring to using mind-attributed mana to cast this taboo.
