As the graduation ceremony came to a close, Aron trudged back to his dormitory for the collection of his things, since he was expelled, he had to leave the school ground within one week.
Although he repealed their verdict. They denied his appeal and informed him that he wasn't going to be allowed to repeal again due to the conclusive evidence they had. So, he shouldn't waste their time and begin preparing himself and leave the campus grounds before he was forced out of it.
With his heart heavy with disappointment and frustration he left the university all alone since he lost almost all his friends after the accusation was announced. His two remaining friends couldn't see him of because they had to attend the mandatory meeting for graduates. The rest of his friends abandoned him the moment the information was leaked which was weird in itself.
When he arrived at his home, he found his parents waiting for him, waiting to hear about the full story from him with details since they only heard the short side of it. But as soon as they saw the expression on his face, they knew that it was going to take a very long time to listen to the whole story.
Tears streaming down his face, Aron told his parents about what had happened in excruciating detail about what happened. He explained how he had been denied graduation by the university and then expelled from the university for something he didn't even do. Although his parents have heard the short form of the story, but his parents still listened in focus and utter disbelief, unable to comprehend how their son could have been treated so unjustly.
After they completed listening to his explanation. Despite the sadness and anger they felt for their son's sake, they asked "So what do you plan to do now?"
Aron sighed and answered "I really don't know where to start really as I can't appeal it again in the university the only way for me to be able to do anything other than suing them, but I know that we can't really afford it"
His parents felt embarrassed when they heard that but couldn't refute him because it was mostly true, but they knew that he wasn't saying this to shame them or anything but to only inform them that his only path was also closed due to their financial situation.
"So, I have to start looking for a parttime job since I don't have a diploma and most of the job's I could have in my field need it." answered Aron looking like he has given up eve the idea of trying to return to university.
"Also, I most likely won't have the job. Because for some reason it has been leaked out that I have plagiarised my thesis, so I have a negative reputation in the industry" Answered Aron while trying to prevent himself to curse Infront of his parents and his little brother who was oblivious of what was happening.
Aron's parents were hard-working individuals who had sacrificed a lot to give their son the best education possible. However, despite their best efforts, they were struggling to make ends meet, and they simply didn't have the financial means to help their son with his legal battle.
Aron's mind was about to be overwhelmed from guilt after he saw his parents saddened for him but just as he was about to console them and ensure them that this isn't much of a problem, he heard a notification on his phone informing him that he received an email, so he opened to read it and oh god he almost had a heart attack because...

Scholarship Program Coordinator
His parents were scared when they saw his face pale" Aron, what wrong?" asked his mother.
Aron couldn't hear her as his brain was doing the calculation of the amount of money he was supported in the four years he received the scholarship.
The estimated cost of attendance for undergraduate students in academic year, which includes tuition, fees, room and board, books, and other expenses, was approximately $61,500 per year.
This means that he had to pay the minimum of total of $246,000 more or less for a four-year undergraduate degree.
He Almost fainted when he completed his calculations, it was only stopped when his father shook him to remove him from his almost fainted situation.
Aron was grateful to them for this, but he knew he was fucked up for the next few years to come until he repaid everything.
But when they asked him to show them, he didn't do that since they might die from heart attack. Their current financial situation couldn't add dept payment or they might just have to file for bankruptcy. So, he only told them that the email was about the confirmation of his expulsion that's why he become paler and that nothing else was wrong.
They knew he was lying or not telling the whole truth, but they didn't insist on it and left him since they knew that he was currently very stressed and there is no need to pile on top of it.
While Aron was sleeping soundly. If you could count sleeping by using sleeping pills as soundly.
Aron was sound asleep in his bed, exhausted from the emotional turmoil of the past few hours. Also, the humongous dept that was dropped on him while he was still stressed.
I mean you can't just recover immediately when you are suddenly a quarter a million in dept without a warning.
For the current Aron, life was really stressful he really wished he could rewind time and change whatever was causing this. That was if he knew what caused it, but he will find it and when he finds it, he will...
A strange object suddenly appeared in the space, it hovers a little bit before being pulled to earth by gravity and fell into the atmosphere.
To everyone's amazement (if anyone was capable of seeing it), it didn't cause any ripple when it was falling that distance but since it was small, and its terminal velocity was low that wasn't really surprising.
it passed right through buildings and trees as if they didn't exist, before finally landing directly on Aron's head and passed through it but it didn't appear on his chin or anywhere as currently it was assimilating with his brain and synchronizing with it.
The assimilation was going on without problem when Aron awoke with a start but fainted immediately.
The strange object that had fallen from the sky had somehow forced him to continue with his sleep as it continue merging with his brain and assimilating with it.
While the assimilation was going on some part of the object was mixing with the nervous system some parts were mixed with Bone marrow some parts were also mixed with almost all parts of his body.
But almost half of it remained on his brain covering almost all of it while mimicking the function of the location it was assimilating.
The voice was sent to his brain, but he couldn't hear it because he was forced into the comma for his sake, or he would have felt excruciating pain to want death to himself or the world.
When the number reached 100 the movement of all parts of the object in his body stopped making any movements as they continued acting the same as the location they were currently residing.
SYSTEM ASIMILATION COMPLETED....
This also was sent to him, but he didn't hear it too.

Aron remained deep in slumber, completely unaware of the profound changes taking place within him and the new door of fate opened for this universe.
Since the DLC of using magic, from discovering it to ways of using it for humans was planned to be released in about 3000 years in order to allow the living thing's on the planet to evolve.
So, one small step for Aron, a giant leap for life kind on earth.
