My Bothersome Life Chapter 120The room was filled with boxes of packaged goods we ordered.
"We should start sorting our things out," Ellen suggested as she unpackaged the goods with joy.
When the room had no more space from the toppling boxes, Shelly and I decided to stop buying stuff.
Shelly and I moved the goods with our mana to the places we wanted them. When we finally finished decorating the apartment, the sun had set.
I jumped on the bed like it was a trampoline to test the springiness of the bed. I covered the bed with pink and purple hearts printed on the bed sheets.
There were no fun patterns in any of the mansions I visited in the first district. Everything was kept very simple and modern or either luxuriously decorated with fine minerals and designs with its rare materials.
The room that was usually used as a study room by other families turned into a video game room.
I finally had the chance to open the shopping bag full of chips from the store as I placed them carefully in the new drawer we bought without exploring its contents.
The new drawer was painted neon blue with white flowers as its pattern. I bought it on Shelly's tablet when it brought me nostalgia of the furniture in my room from my past life.
I was filled with anticipation as I imagined of filling this room with more goods from the other districts in the future.
The only room void of merchandise was the kitchen. At this rate, the kitchen was only there for decoration.
"Do we need anything for the kitchen?" I asked Shelly and Ellen when I noticed it was the only room left unfilled.
Shelly shook her head in response. "I don't know how to cook."
Ellen agreed with Shelly as she nodded at the empty kitchen.
"I know how to cook," I revealed.
"You do?" Both Shelly and Ellen yelled together from surprise.
"I cooked for Luke and myself in the third district," I unveiled my accomplishment.
'And I always cooked in my past life when I helped my mother cook dinner.' I said to myself.
Shelly took out her tablet again as we searched though some items to fill our kitchen.
I sighed as the cooking tools in the first district were significantly different from the third district. All the cooking tools needed mana to work and there were complicated instructions when using them in the manuals attached to the tool.
Maybe I would try experimenting with the tools in the kitchen in the cafeteria before using the kitchen in our new hideout.
"I've seen or used these tools before," I admitted as we gave up on buying more stuff.
"Maybe next time," Shelly encouraged me as she nudged me gently.
The room was lit from the small white mana crystal near the top of the ceiling. Thankfully, the mana crystals in each room came with the apartment.
I knew that mana crystals with high concentration of power was very expensive. One mana crystal that was graded 'SSS' cost 10,000,000 Aris.
However, I was constantly challenged to have a humble mindset when it came to money when those same mana crystals commonly decorated my clothes.
I struggled to find a piece of clothing in my closet that didn't have a highly powered mana crystal decorating it.
Even the exterior walls of Luke's mansion was comprised of the those highly powered mana crystals.
I only knew these mana crystals were pricey when I looked at the price tags of one of my dresses when I went shopping with Luke to buy some more clothes.
I didn't like shopping with Luke, but at the same time, I would be cooped up in Luke's mansion or school other than shopping together with him if I didn't sneak out like today.
"We should start heading back," Shelly pointed out when the moonlight poured through the walls.
Ellen passed me the gift box that was full of candles and spelled bottles.
"We'll celebrate at school," Ellen started to call back our hover car.
"How about we order cakes from our usual cafe before heading to my room?" I happily suggested to them inside the hover car.
"Or I could set the order to be delivered to your room," Shelly started to order what she said on her tablet.
Shelly ordered a round strawberry shortcake and six glasses of her favourite chocolate milkshake.
When I opened my dorm room with anticipation, the room was empty except for its usual furniture and the cake and milkshakes near the entryway.
I was surprised that both Luke and Alex didn't try to find us for the entire day today.
I didn't turn the tracking on my marble off as I didn't want to risk Luke rushing to find me like last time I did it.
I grabbed some frilly pillows on my bed to pass to Shelly and Ellen to sit on the ground.
Shelly placed the cake and milkshakes in the middle of the circle we made as I pulled out my giftbox.
I carefully unwrapped the gift and gently pulled on the silk ribbon that unravelled quite easily.
I pulled out the paper covering the candles as I put each candle on the cake one by one.
"Which one are you going to light first?" Shelly asked me with a warm smile.
"All of them!" I lit all the candles at once with my mana.
