oks good.”


Ann laughed like a child.
Well, she was a child.
But until now, Ann didn’t have the chance to be like a child.

There will be a lot of work ahead and she will not be able to smile like today.

So Ann’s smile was precious.

“You will be late.

“I’ll come back safe!”

Ann’s steps were lighter this time.

Jamie looked until she left.

“I should also get going now.”

The beginning of a very leisurely morning of a teacher.

“Wow! Barely made it…”

Ann managed to get to class ten minutes before the bell rang.

Since morning she used Haste to come here, and she was exhausted as she ran.

Gasp- she kept taking huge breaths and was about to sit, but looked at Lennon who was behind her seat with a smirk on his face.

She heard from Jamie that the thing about her snoring and Lennon being unable to sleep was an outright lie.

‘Son of a gun!’

Guess who wasn’t acting like a 9 year old.

… even as she thought about it, she remembered that her teacher, Jamie, who she was going to consider as her master, was just 8 years old.

And she was 10 years old.

Ann sat down, feeling the concept of age turning weird.

‘I don’t want to give him the necklace.’

On the way out.
Jamie gave her two of them saying it was a gift to the disciples.

And told her to give one to Lennon, but seeing him smile she didn’t want to give him.

‘Still, I am the older one here, so I need to be patient.’

It was right to show an adult-like appearance to someone younger.

Ann approached Lennon with a sullen face.

“Why? Don’t worry.
The thing about snori…”

“B-be quiet! And…”

Ann’s eyes widened as she looked at her friends warning Lennon to not speak.

“If you say that nonsense again, you will die.
I heard everything from the teacher okay? Don’t act mean to this sister.”

“Sister, my ass.”

I won’t give this to you if you don’t be polite to me.”

Ann showed the necklace to Lennon with a smile.

Lennon didn’t know what it was.

“What is that? Even if you give me that, I have no intention of acting nice.”

“What is this bastard spouting? Teacher gave this to me as proof of becoming his disciple.”


Lennon’s eyes lit up.

One way or another he was still a 9 year old.
It was the age at which his mind would want it.

“Anyway, if you go around talking nonsense, you will die.
I will hand this back.”

“What rudeness is that? Look at you.”

“I am sure the teacher will come after you if you don’t get this or act high.”

Lennon frowned.

It wasn’t known if what she was saying was true, but he knew that Jamie would definitely come after him.

He did hit his head right this morning.


“Anyway, treat me with respect.”

“Shut up.”

Lennon stuck his tongue out and Ann put the necklace down.

Lennon, who snatched it away, began to look at it with shining eyes.

Ann watched that and went back to her seat.

And as she sat down, Finn spoke.

“What? When did you become friends with him?”

But how is your body?”

Yesterday he looked bad and today he seemed better.

“The drug worked well.”


Apophis EX is a small version of the new…”

Finn recounted the trip to Trinity and the maker of Apophis X and even about Ivan in detail.

“The manager seemed gentle and Ivan was a VIP and I got the EX as a special gift and because this is a safer variety of the new EX which is under development.
But still, this works a lot better than X and now I am more refreshed than ever and my head is so clear.”

Finn spoke excitedly but Ann’s expression darkened as she said,

I think you should stop having it.”

“What are you talking about all of a sudden?”

“No matter how I look at it, yesterday was weird, your condition wasn’t normal body aches.
And isn’t Apophis X meant to be a nutritional supplement?”


“What nutritional supplement in the world can cure body aches? Nutrients are just plain nutrients.
It is something which makes you feel a little fine, and a bit refreshed, that is all.”

But look at the state of Finn.

This wasn’t some nutritional supplement.
It was looking like the effect of steroids which were forcibly raising the body level.

In particular, amplifying one's mana.
The drugs with such an effect in the world cannot be simple nutrients.

And what Finn looked like yesterday was clear side effects.
And now she was convinced.

“Stop having that.
I don’t know why such a thing is even popular, but it will harm your body…”

“Stop, Ann.”

Finn cut her off.

And said,

“I know that you are jealous and feeling inferior.”


“It is you, not me who needs to wake up.
Even though you can't applaud your friend for not doing well, you shouldn’t try to demean them by saying such things.”

“No, I-”

“You really suck.”

Finn got up and left the class.

Ann just looked at the door dumbfounded.

“What is with him?”

Lennon approached her and pointed to Finn who left, but Ann didn’t respond.

Something was horribly wrong.
