The days then passed normally. The first period was the one with normal classes. So it was pretty annoying.
During lunch, people were looking even more in Kye's direction. He had completely become the hot topic of the academy. First by beating Bulk, then by having won against Lidi who was the queen of the first year, and last but not least, by being accompanied by someone from the military that no one knew where.
Some theorized that he was someone influential but in disguise, others that he was someone closely related to the military or even that he was an illegitimate son. But no one was even close to the truth.
"It's quite funny to hear people spouting bullsh*t about you, don't you think?" Ven asked while they were heading toward the weapon class. They had let Yugo just a second ago.
"Yeah, I guess so."
"Are you still uncomfortable by all these looks?"
"Yeah, and I don't think I will be able to get used to it. Especially when it's not related to something good. They are either envying me because I'm hanging out with high-level people such as you or want to beat me for whatever reason they had. And either way, it's not something nice."
"Even if they want to bully you, I'm sure you won't let yourself be beaten now, right?" Kye nodded. "And if they are unfortunate enough to touch, I or Yugo will surely beat them back to death, you don't have to be worried about that."
"I don't know if I should be worried about them or you're sadistic smile."
"What do you mean? My smile is totally normal," Ven chuckled as they entered the weapon classroom.
Since they were a few minutes early, they just sat and talked with each other. Some minutes later, someone else came into the classroom and sat by Kye's side.
Kye didn't speak with her since he wasn't a friend or even an acquaintance of her, so he just looked ahead and was waiting for the class to begin.
It was peaceful until Ven spoke.
"You're Lidi, right?" Ven asked as she nodded. "Why are you turning around my boy? Are you interested in him?" He put his forearm on Kye's shoulder while talking from his back to Lidi.
"What will you even do if I am, huh?" She smirked.
"It depends, what are you waiting for from him? Do you wanna bully him or be a friend?"
"Why would I want to bully someone as interesting as him?" Lidi asked as if the answer was obvious.
"I don't know, because you're a high level compared to him?"
"Aren't you a high level too?"
"Yeah, but I'm his friend."
"And so am I."
"What?" Ven made a weird expression and looked at Kyle in the face. "Since when?"
Lidi put her forearm on Kye's shoulder and crossed her leg before answering for Kye. "Since now, of course."
Hearing them, Kye was quite perplexed. He didn't know what to do. Lidi seems to be a good person, but he didn't know if he would be able to trust her, so he didn't want to go on with things for nothing.
Though, Ven just burst Kye out from his thought.
"HAHAHAHA," Ven laughed his a*s off. He even had some difficulties continuing. "You're so funny. You want to be his friend but don't even ask if he wants. What is the difference between a bully and you at this point?"
"What? Kye, are we friends?" Lidi asked as she stood up.
Kye once again didn't know what to do. He didn't want to answer on a whim, but she also looked like a good person.
And in the end, he just said, "I guess we could be from now on?"
"What?" This time, it was Ven who stood up. "Kye, are you crazy? Will you seriously be her friend? You don't even know her."
"Did he know you when he first met you though?" Lidi asked.
"I guess she had a point," Kye said with an apologetic smile.
And seeing that, Ven just sat back and said, "I will keep an eye on you. So you better be careful because if you treat him wrongly, you will pay it."
"As I said earlier, there's no need for me to bully him. He's too interesting; Not that I'm that type of person anyway," She sat back too, and as if they finished their discussion just in time, Madison came into the classroom.
"Alright, everyone. For today's class, we will continue doing spar. But unlike yesterday, you will fight against two people at the same time," She said. "If we do that it's just because you won't always fight just one enemy at a time, so like this, you will at least be prepared a little."
"Can we use our abilities?" A student asked without even waiting for her to ask him to speak.
"No, you need to fight without them too because sooner or later, during a fight, your energy will be depleted. And when this time will come, you will only have your weapon to use."
"This is bullsh*t," A girl said. "We will be dead if we don't have any energy left anyway, so let's just do it with them to improve our ability and with a weapon."
hearing her, a lot of people nodded at what she said. It was true. If they didn't have any energy left to use their abilities, they will die. There wasn't any use to defend without their ability. And even if they were managing to do it, their enemy would surely still have a little bit of energy, so they won't be able to defend themselves against an ability user.
"Young miss and to all the people who agreed with her," Madison said with a gentle voice. "If you want to learn more about your abilities, then go to the appropriate class. I don't have time to waste with kids like you."
