Rubik's Cube of Heavens - Chapter 67
Perhaps it was because of his previous record, Dumbledore didn’t believe that the modest expression on Coven’s face was his true attitude. Therefore, Dumbledore wanted to use his legilimency spell to see the real thoughts in Coven’s mind.
However, Dumbledore miscalculated this time. Coven had already added Occlumency to himself before he came to the office. Now that Dumbledore entered Coven’s mind, Coven immediately discovered it.
As a conditioned reflex, Coven instantly made up fake memories, covering his real psychological activities, so that Dumbledore could only read that he really had a humble idea in his heart.
Next, Coven deliberately emptied his mind, making Dumbledore have an illusion that his spiritual sense had been discovered by Coven.
As Coven expected, Dumbledore immediately retracted his spiritual sense, but there was no embarrassment on his face. He continued to say to Coven, “Child, do you know? We have a purpose in Hogwarts.”
“Mr. Headmaster, what is the purpose?” Coven said, but his face showed a slightly vigilant mood. In this way, he found out that Dumbledore was trying to find out his thoughts, but he did not dare to say it out.
Dumbledore turned a blind eye to the vigilant look on Coven’s face and continued to say gently, “The goal of the school is that as long as there is a student asking for help, the school will help.”
Coven had no memory of this sentence, so he was indeed surprised, and his face showed a corresponding expression.
Dumbledore saw this and continued to say gently, “Before, I only arranged for the professors to care and help you with your studies… Now that you have mastered Memory Charm, the help the school gives you should also improve accordingly. So, I especially approved a classroom for you to practice the magic spell in peace and continue to improve yourself.”
“Thank you, Headmaster!” Although Coven had already found out that ‘Rom of Requirement’, he still stood up to express his gratitude.
“This is the purpose of our school, isn’t it? Sit down quickly. There is no need to be so formal.” Dumbledore repeated to deepen Coven’s understanding of Hogwarts’ noble purpose.
Hearing this, Coven nodded in agreement. He really liked this very tolerant school.
“Well, come and listen to my arrangements.” Dumbledore felt that the foreshadowing was enough, so he began to talk about business. “The classroom I arranged for you is on the third floor of Central Tower. It used to be a Potion classroom.”
“I will remember it. Thank you, headmaster.” Coven thanked him again.
Dumbledore smiled and shook his head slightly. “But we have to make an agreement.”
Coven was slightly stunned and asked in confusion, “An agreement?”
“That’s right.” He said gently, “You can only go there to practice magic spells after the afternoon classes from Monday to Friday. I will arrange for the free professors to look after you. First, it is to prevent you from practicing magic spells. Second, I can give you some pointers.”
“Thank you, Mr. Principal, but…” Coven did not expect such an agreement. He asked doubtfully, “What about the weekend?”
Dumbledore smiled when he heard this. “Child, the weekend is a break time. It’s not just your break time. You should also understand the hard work of the professors and give them a holiday.”
“Ah! I’m sorry, Mr. Principal. I didn’t think of this.” Coven suddenly realized and immediately apologized in embarrassment.
“Moreover, you have to have a good talk with your classmates and friends during the weekend vacation and play happily together. You can’t become lonely and lonely because you are good at learning and have extraordinary talent….”
“If you grow up and find that you have nothing but magic, Then how sad would a life like that be?”
When Coven heard this, he didn’t think much of it.
He believed that loneliness was because he didn’t want to play with others. But actually, loneliness was that others didn’t want to play with him.
Coven knew that he was now quite lonely because he wasn’t really a little kid. He didn’t want to play any childish games with other kids.
But after all, what Dumbledore said was good, so after Coven made an expression of ‘seriously thinking’, he thanked him sincerely again. “Thank you for your guidance, Headmaster! I will pay attention to this.”
“Very good child.” Dumbledore nodded with satisfaction and then changed the topic. “Well, let’s talk about other things after we finish our business.”
“Well… Let me think about it.” Dumbledore turned to look at the display cabinet. He pointed at Sorting Hat in the display cabinet and said with a smile, “I heard that you had an interesting exchange with it in the sorting ceremony?”
Coven turned to look at Sorting Hat. Thinking of the scene back then, he couldn’t help but smile with regret. “Yes, sir. I learned about four houses from Sorting Hat.”
“Then how about we play a small game?” Dumbledore said as he got up and walked to the display cabinet. Then he took Sorting Hat out.
Back at the desk, Dumbledore placed Sorting Hat on the table and smiled at Coven, “Sorting Hat has a small secret. The game is for you to find this small secret.”
“If you win, then I can allow you to go to the library’s forbidden book area to read books in the future. How about it?”
Hearing this, Coven was very moved. After looking at Sorting Hat, he nodded and agreed, “Yes, Headmaster.”
“Well, then you can start to search for its little secret.” Dumbledore smiled and spread his hands to Sorting Hat.
Coven stood up and took a step forward. He stretched out his hand and hesitantly asked, “Headmaster, can I pick it up?”
Dumbledore nodded. “Of course.”
Hearing this, Coven directly held Sorting Hat in his hand and carefully looked at it in a circle.
After a while, Coven did not find any clues on Sorting Hat’s appearance, so he turned Sorting Hat over and looked inside the hat.
The inside of the hat was also very normal, except that it was as shabby as the outside.
Coven was a little puzzled. ‘What secret could this hat have?’
Immediately, he opened the memory plug-in in his mind and searched for keywords about ‘Sorting Hat’.
Soon, Coven’s eyes lit up.
When he looked inside Sorting Hat again, he couldn’t help but reveal a pleasantly surprised expression.
Something suddenly appeared inside the originally empty hat…
Seeing this, Coven immediately reached into Sorting Hat’s body and pulled out a gorgeous one-handed metal sword from the inside of the hat…
