lips hesitated for a while, sometimes it trembled, but ultimately squeezed out the words ”Drop out. ”.

”Sorry, thats not possible. ” I responded.

Its not like I had a choice. Not after what happened that day.

Manzaki let out an exasperated sigh.

”Ryuunosuke, was it? I get it, for someone as broke as you to say what you just said. ” Manzaki said, but it didn feel like he was mocking me; His tone was rather gentle and patient.

”Youve received that same letter, haven you? The letter promised that, for the duration of your enrollment, all of your living expenses would be covered free of charge by East Academy. As long as you regularly attended lessons, you would have the financial support of the school. That rang true, its not a scam. However… ” Manzaki paused, as if to collect his thoughts. He intended to continue his speech, but for some reason, he stopped speaking, as if his own words were caught in his throat midway through.

”…Healing magic, can you use it? ” Manzaki asked suddenly.

”No, I can . ”

He sneered, ”Yeah, same here. But the nurses and doctors here can. They
e pretty good at it, too. ” He gazed at his two pitiful lackeys as he said that.

Healing magic were pretty strong, if I recall. One high-tier healing spell could restore one to tip-top shape even in the most dire of states.

”So then, why are these two… ” Still in this shape?

Manzaki fell silent again, waiting for me to connect the dots on my own.

e the same as me and you. They both come from poor, impoverished circumstances. Kanji was born in the slums of Eterna, and Leo lost both his parents when he was little. ” Manzaki solemnly spoke, it was clear how close he was to these two.

But the question remained, why were we admitted here?

”Ryuunosuke. The first year assembly starts soon, can you walk? ”

”Yeah, barely. ”

”Then its best if you go now. And be careful, everyone here is your enemy. Oh, and sorry for earlier, we didn mean to scare ya, honest. ”
