The two druids then started the ceremony. As they ordered, Lilac held her hand above a pedestal, with her hand over her familiar's. Then, the druids began chanting some words she did not understand. She figured it must be some sort of ancient tongue, something that already existed, unchanged, since the first sacramentum was performed. And then, as they finished, she felt a tingling sensation on the back of her hand, as the seal of sacramentum formed on her skin.
She looked at it closely. She wasn't the kind of person who was fond of tattoos, but she had to admit that the seal was quite well-designed in the aesthetic department.
With this, she was now officially a mage.
"Well then," she looked at his familiar, still with that impassionate and cool gaze of hers, "I suppose we now go to our dormitory room now."
Like the others, two volunteers offered to carry their bags and luggages to their room, which Lilac was certainly thankful for. She could finally be free of that annoying physical task her body wasn't suited for.
As they walked, at first Lilac stayed silent. But then, she decided to use the opportunity to lay out some ground rules with her partner.
"As you well know, our two rooms will be side by side with a sliding wall separating them. We will share the bathroom. So, since I am a girl and you are a boy, I have to insist that you do not open the wall before knocking first. Same with the bathroom. Of course, I will do the same as well."
She said this with her stern voice, but she couldn't help to blush a little from the topic she was discussing. She was always shy about this matter. Back in the first year, she had to share the showers with other girls. And even though they were all of the same gender, she was still shy of showing her skin in front of them. It didn't help that they thought she was really cute and they loved to touch her soft and gentle skin while they were showering. For Lilac who never had any close contact with others, it was a nightmare of embarrassment.
So now with only one other person to share her room with, she hoped that she could finally get back to the leisure bathing time she was fond of when she was still living in her parents' house. @pkken
