As soon as I was only a few meters away from her window, I folded my body si
After Sophia got home, she went ahead and placed the suitcase on the table. When she was about to close the door on her back, her legs suddenly gave out.-Thud!"I can't feel them..." Sophia murmured to herself. After touching her lap with her fingers, she noticed that it was shaking."St-stop shaking!" She shook her legs, but it didn't listen. After waiting for a few minutes, she finally git tired of it and decided to drag herself towards the door to close it.When she's done, Sophia slumped her back to the wall to try and calm herself down. But, all she could think about was what happened earlier.Seeing the darkness covered the whole body of the boy, she suddenly felt a new emotion steering out inside her.Although she had managed to hide this new profound emotions up until she got back to her room, it seems like her legs finally gave out after what she just experienced.Sophia didn't know what it was since it is the
A day had passed since after I met up with the Principal. I'm currently making my way downtown once again to meet up with Sophia.After reaching the expensive looking restaurant, I surveyed the whole place to look for her. "Now, where is she?" I wondered. Then, my gaze fell on the masked-lady that was inside the VIP area.I walked up to the door, but some guards stopped me after I was only a few meters on reaching it."This is the VIP area, kiddo," The guard spoke. "Anyone who doesn't have any reservations here can't enter inside this area."Hearing this, I took out an ticket inside my [Pocket Ring], then showed it to him. He then took it from my hand lightly before starting to examine it.After he's done, the guard turned around and nodded to his companions, who slowly opened the door for me.𝘖𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯: 𝘉𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘢'𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘪𝘴 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨...I shook my head and went inside the area without changing my indifference expression.

A couple of minutes had passed since after I saw the letter that was placed behind my Adventurer's ID. Without much thoughts, I continued on with my training silently. Using my left, I clutched the sword tight. While on my right, I tightened my grip and aimed my sword directly at the middle.I strengthened my left, then used my right hand to guide the direction of where my slashes will be."Haaaa!"With a fast and swift cut, the dummy in front of me got sliced cleanly in half, as it's upper-part slowly slide towards the corner to the right before falling to the ground.Letting out a long breath, I once again fixed my stance before aiming my sword to the once-fallen dummy in front of me. It was slowly starting to recover.I continued this training again for a couple of minutes until Cossette's class was over. Then, sat down to the bench to rest.𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘣𝘦 𝘢 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰 𝘪𝘵 𝘯𝘰𝘸... I thought. 𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬? 𝘐𝘧 𝘯?
After waking up from my room, I did my usual morning stretching before taking a quick shower. When that's done, I put on my newly sewed uniform and took a look at myself in the mirror."It looks the same like what mentioned in the novel." I said to myself while combing my hair upward.The normal uniform of the academy consists of a black shirt and black blazer and pants and for girls, the uniform is the same except for the black skirt. But the shades of black are different for each clothes like for shirt the shade of black is darkest and for the blazer, the shade of black is kind of light. Though, since mine was ordered by the principal herself, it was created special as my new uniform consisted in a black and prismarine coloured combination shirt, which has few stripes as design, and also a crest of White Fox in my right side. Seeing my reflection in this uniform, I couldn't help but smile wryly. 𝘐 𝘸𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘈𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘸𝘢?
"...What are you doing?" Staring at the girl who had a navy-blue hair in front of me, I sighed. "I'm serious here... What do you want from me?"Although I knew the girl who was in front of me was Athena, one of the protagonist's future girlfriend, I still asked just to not raise any suspicion."You..." With a frustrated expression, the girl in front of me pointed her fingers an inches away from my nose. "Who are you?" The girl asked.I went silent...𝘐𝘴𝘯'𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘮𝘺 𝘲𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯...? I internally thought. Bit by bit, I was starting to get annoyed with this girl. Sighing, I scratched the back of my neck and tilted my head in confusion while forcing a smile. "What do you mean by asking 'who are you'...?"The girl in front of me suddenly pulled my collar. "You... You're the same as me, am I right?"Both of our face was only a few inches from each other, so I decided to push h
DungeonsThe dungeon itself was like a living thing, a species that sometimes often born in places with a high concentration of mana. The humans and the other kind of Races were particularly well known for their dungeon-crushing antics. Some of their attacks were heavily driven by greed? Or to say the least, what some can assumed to be as greed for the hidden artifact that was resting inside. The dungeon’s core, the reddish orb that served as its heart, could serve a pretty good pretty good value since it was full of high concentrated mana. Meaning, It could also fetch a pretty money on the market. Unfortunately, humans and the other Races weren’t the only creatures that attacked dungeons. Monsters and the True Demons, do it as well. Dungeon cores were rich in mana, and thus, their instincts drove them to hunt them. In other words, dungeon's importance was similar to an artifact.Everyone and everything was hostile for a dungeon.And it was for that reason that dungeons pick some
Few days had passed since William and I entered the academy.After my offer got rejected by Arthur, I decided to team up with the trio since William and Persia wanted to work as a duo. The trio happily accepted my offer as I was somehow got invited in a party."This calls for a celebration!" Darnom happily said with a smile. Is this how hardcore fans treat their idols if they successfully invited them? Now I somehow feel bad for the people who had been trying their hardest just to invite me to the casino... Wait, do I really have to feel sympathy about them?"Hey, Athan! Come on, let's drink!" Xavier spoke, taking a wine bottle that was hiding below his bed. When I saw this, I sighed. Coughing, I replied, "Aren't you guys twelve?" Xavier, who was about to pour the wine from their cup, stopped and turned his head slightly in my direction. "It's not like they'll find out. These guys will not even tell a thing, right?" He said, nudging the shoulders of the two frozen idiots with a stif
