8 Awakening Ceremony & Debut Part 2
As Alex reached the end of the carpet he leaped upwards as the wind from the system was created below his feet, lifting him to the balcony where he landed gently in front of 4 individuals. His Mother in the middle, Marry who is the manager of the Auction House to her right, The General Of The Army for Dragon continent to her left and his youngest daughter beside him.
'My Guy! I couldn't have wished for a better little brother!'
Alex didn't stop there, he wouldn't stop or else all his efforts would go to waste. Soon after landing he approached his Mother with shock shown in her eyes. He didn't let anyone come back to their senses as he knelt down on one knee as he greeted her with everyone's eyes below and around him were glued on the scene.
*Kiss* Alex kissed Alexandra's right hand and said "This child greets his Lovely Mother"
While looking at her pink eyes "Mother looks as beautiful as the Moon Goddess this Evening". His mother was wearing a blue dress with her golden pink hair gathered at the top of her head and flowing down to her shoulders.
(The Moon Goddess is considered the most beautiful existence in both the Moral world as well as God's world.)
Alex stood back up to greet Rebecca dressed in red with black long curly hair and crimson eyes. He kisses her right-hand as compliments rolled off his tongue like a machine gun.
"I've heard sister Rebecca was very beautiful, but today your beauty transcends the heavens." making her cheeks blush. He moved onto greet the general who stood at 2 meters with a big muscular build dressed in his general uniform as he gave off a powerful aura to not be messed with.
With a deep bow full of admiration and honor. "General has my utmost gratitude and admiration, I hope General will take care of this youngster in the future and lead him in a path of righteousness as great as yours."
"Hahaha, such a great kid. You have a bright future ahead of you. I know it."
The General nodded as he smiled which signaled him to lift his head and greet the last individual.
Leila was the youngest daughter of the General while Rebecca was the eldest. Leila was only a couple of months younger than Alex, but Alex thought of her as a baby hiding behind her parents. Nevertheless, he treated her with the same respect as he did with Rebecca and the General to maintain his image.
He walks up to the shy Leila as he checks her out. Looking at her dark purple hair, shining purple eyes, Alex thought 'I am not after little kids so let's get this over with quickly'. Noticing that she was shorter than him, he once again got on one knee and kissed her right hand, and complimented her cuteness which made her blush a deep red leaving her speechless.
Once he finished with his greetings, Alex went to his Mother's side with a smile on his face. All the while, the audience was frozen silent as they were still taken aback from his exquisite actions just now.
"Mother, would mind if I introduce myself to our guests?" Alex whispered to his dazed mother.
"Ahh, Yes! I have been waiting for the announcement for a while now!" His mother whispers back as she pinched his cheeks. His mother was referring back to a promise between them a couple of months. She wanted to name him but he insisted that he would name himself and announce it during the Awakening Ceremony. Alex took so long to decide on his name because he didn't know whether to give himself a new name or keep his name from back on Earth.
"I guess it's decided!'
Alex stepped forward and scanned the audience looking at the hundreds of people that came. Looking at the back of the hall he sees Elisa and the other maids of the house standing and his smile became warmer as his nerves calmed down. He knew most of the people came to this event not because of him, but because of his mother and her lofty status as the Owner of the Heavenly Dragon Auction House which they couldn't afford to offend or disrespect by not attending this banquet.
"It is my greatest Honor as ALEX RAGER to see all of you ladies and gentlemen taking the time out of your day to attend this banquet to celebrate my third birthday and bare witness to my awakening Ceremony. I hope that you will take care of me in the future. Thank You."
'Alex Rager! It's just like mama's name, it's making my heart melt!' Alexandra thought as she looked at Alex's with teary eyes wanting to embrace him.
She then noticed the silence and stepped forward to support him.
"We will now begin the Aptitude Test Shortly. I hope that all of you can accept my son and treat him as if he is your own child!"
The audience came back to their sense after hearing the angelic voice of Alexandra and responded to her request.
"Of course, anything Miss Alexandra requests is our duty to follow to our utmost!"
"Alex is already like family to us!"

"Miss Alexandra has raised her son as exquisite and disciplined as herself! It would be our honor to accept Alex to our family of Nobles!"
The crowd spoke out in response to her request and at the same time, they tried to one-up each other to gain the favor of Alexandra. While workers from the auction house brought out a brand new high-tiered aptitude stone for the test.
'I just hope this goes well and all end in our favor' Rebecca thought to herself. She knew that Alex was adopted by Alexandra and knew that her family didn't approve of her actions but she went against them for this child.
'If he has great talent in cultivation he might be accepted by the Rager family and officially become Alexandra's child.' thought Rebecca.
However, Alex begs to differ, he did want to be accepted by her family not as her son, but as her future husband. They weren't related by blood, he is otherworldly handsome, a genius at business and negotiations, and would become the ruler of the three realms in the near future. 'Who wouldn't want me to marry their daughter?!... They would rather be on their knees begging.'
