Volume 6, Chapter 2: "Lavias, City in the Sky"

Short Summary Edit

In the City of Heaven, Dain is seen finally logging back into Royal Road now that she's fully recovered from her real life surgery. She goes about battling against any dullahan or skeleton she comes across within the Cave of Dead Warriors in order to get used to her Shaman avatar again. Dain also comes across the Nameless Sculptures of Lavias that were left behind by Weed, which causes her to break down into tears knowing that Weed left behind their memories when they partied together. She desires to see Weed again, but given that Dain rejected his friend request the day she last saw him, she has to wait for the day that they finally cross paths again. Until then, Dain decides to adventure with other players around Lavias in order to catch up to Weed's level.

Meanwhile in Rosenheim Kingdom, the Geomchis go about trying to impress the beautiful women in the Citadel of Serabourg. They decide to take up construction after gaining an understanding of the Architect skill when they helped build the Tomb of King Theodarren, and start off with a D-Rank Quest to build a new flower shop home for a girl named Selena. Said construction work results in them acquiring the Bricklaying and Landscaping sub-skills, and completing Selena's home results in the Geomchis being offered more construction quests around Serabourg.

The Geomchis all break into the level 200 range thanks to the quest experience from their construction quests, which results in a mysterious wanderer appearing before master Geomchi. The wanderer offers a special Class Advancement Quest for the Geomchis to go out and hone their skills by experiencing the world, and then return to face the wanderer in order to learn skills that are unique to their Martial Artist class. Master Geomchi decides that it's best for the Geomchis to all go their separate ways in order to hone their skills for six months, which they all agree to do. The Geomchis depart from Rosenheim Kingdom soon after with each going off on their own solo journey.

In real life, Lee Hye Yeon reveals to brother Lee Hyun that she sent an application form to the University of Korea, which catches his attention. She also informs him that Hyun has to go in to have an interview today at the university, which excites her brother enough to get himself ready for it under the belief that he's acting as the older guardian for his sister's application. Hyun's actions leave Hye Yeon confused as to why he's not angry over her sister applying him to a university behind his back, but she soon realizes the misunderstanding, and decides to go along with it.

Hyun and Hye Yeon arrive at the University of Korea for the application interview with the professors, but Hye Yeon goes to the bathroom pretending that she has a stomach ache minutes before the interview goes down, which forces Hyun to go to the interview alone before it gets cancelled. During the interview with the 5 professors, Hyun continues misunderstanding the situation, and goes through his life story supporting Hye Yeon. Despite seeing the huge misunderstanding, the professors notice Hyun's deep understanding of virtual reality in his story, and agree that Hyun would make for an incredible student in said field. Unbeknownst to Hyun, the professors give their stamp of approval on his application.

Along the way home with his sister, Hyun is left depressed that he messed up Hye Yeon's interview. Seeing that her brother still doesn't know what's up, Hye Yeon makes sure to change their home mailing address to the hospital where their grandmother is hospitalized at in order to see the results of the application before her brother.
