Nothing much has changed-- Liliath and I did manage to read a manga together-- just that it isn't porn related. Fortunately.Bookmark here

We also did other miscellaneous tasks on the way, and I realized that previous quests can repeat sometimes-- which is a good thing.Bookmark here

Putting that aside, I am wearing a white collared shirt with long yellow-ocher coloured pants as my formal attire. It's not the school uniform, sinceIi haven't received it, but the documents emphasised that students HAVE to wear smart. Typical stuff.Bookmark here

Liliath is wearing her signature black-laced dress with a yellow cardigan. Her hair tied with a blood red ribbon my mom bought a few days ago since it looked 'cool' on Liliath. Though i think 'cute' should be replaced with 'cool'.Bookmark here

A pin to keep her hair from falling to the front of her face and we have the cutest, most attractive Liliath.Bookmark here

Yeah..Bookmark here

Still can't get her cuteness out of my system huh? Welp, at least it's so cute, it crushes my little sister's level of cuteness, which in itself is already very very cute. But she's the devil so let's not dig too deep into her cuteness..Bookmark here

"You contacted Prune did you?" my mom asked.Bookmark here

"Yeah, I guess it's just the two of us from our previous school."Bookmark here

"Three, you don't intend to leave me out, do you now Noel," Liliath narrowed her eyes at me.Bookmark here

"Three.. not two. Sorry."Bookmark here

I wonder if the two are still hostile to each other? And I wonder if Liliath's past had anything to do with it.Bookmark here

The last time I texted Prune, Liliath kept trying to pry our topic of conversation. It's a fact that Liliath doesn't harbor any romantic feelings towards me whatsoever after learning about her special quests during the hospital incident. That said, her actions were the opposite of that though..Bookmark here

I do wonder why she's so cooperative with the quests. I wonder if she ever feels embarrassed to complete the tasks-- nevermind, my mind just retrieved for me a bunch of image files where Liliath was rolled up into a ball.Bookmark here

Another thing I learnt about why Prune was considered an individual with a troublesome TALENT. The fact that she's a demi-human is for one, a super rare occurrence. If anything, she's probably the only person in Gilgamesh at this point in time to possess this TALENT where her hair colour and ears are altered. Not to mention her tail.Bookmark here

Another reason would be her biology, her body became different from that of normal humans despite looking human on the outside. She told me that she would have a craving for raw meat from time to time.Bookmark here

In a sense, her TALENT made medical treatment a little more troublesome.Bookmark here

And that's kinda why her TALENT was categorized as troublesome. Or.. could it be that the government has any intention of her becoming a guard dog to sniff out drugs from the airport? Only time will tell.. I hope not though.Bookmark here

"I suppose we'll meet up with Prune one way or the other. Since there's a big welcome speech that's going to be held," I said, showing Liliath and mom the itinerary for today's event.Bookmark here

A cherry blossom path spread out in front of us, leaves drifting in the wind brought by the sultry wind of the summer causing me to sweat like crazy.Bookmark here

The pristine path leading to the huge building fan out in a wide grandiose manner in front was made from refined, light brown interlocking brick blocks. I almost tripped because I thought the path would be safe and flat, taking for granted the finger sized a rock in front of me as my attention was directed at a tuft of grass growing from between the cracks of the bricks.Bookmark here

The sky was a sea of blue, barely any clouds in the surrounding. Allowing the sun to beat down and roast us like turkey meat without anything to stop it in its path.Bookmark here

And here I am, holding a bag containing the files I need to pass to Keaton-- dragging my feet under the crazy 40 degree heat of summer.Bookmark here

The fuck is with this temperature...Bookmark here

Turning to look at my mom and father, they were sweating, though wearing a smile.Bookmark here

On the other side, Liliath and the little devil were barely breaking a sweat. Rather, the little devil looked hyper gallant with the way she was walking. Huh...Bookmark here

Huh?Bookmark here

Is it just me or do I smell magic in the air?Bookmark here

"My apologies," noticing my gaze, Liliath said, shrinking back.Bookmark here

After which I felt a cool breeze envelope myself. Something manifested above me that seemed to block the heat of the sun despite the strong eye-stinging light.Bookmark here

"I wish I had asked this earlier.. thank you Liliath" I heard my father lament with a bitter smile.Bookmark here

"Thank you Liliath," my mom said with an exhale.Bookmark here

"Yeah, you saved us Liliath," I also said my thanks.Bookmark here

Liliath smiled, "Your welcome."Bookmark here

Liliath has come a long way from her princess speech to casual speaking.Bookmark here

Oh right, if you're wondering why cherry blossoms are everywhere, and why almost every school has at least one cherry three, remember this: all trees in Gilgamesh were imported from other countries. That goes for the grass too-- or maybe sea-crossing birds just came and populated the place with grass seeds-- aka, bird poo. Now that's what you call doing a good service to Gigamesh's plant life.Bookmark here

And with Liliath's complicated barrier surrounding us, we proceeded towards the building, passing the pitiful students melting in the heat.Bookmark here

Lilaith was fortunately aware of her own conspicuousness, so she has most probably casted a concealment barrier around her since nobody was raising precarious gazes at her.Bookmark here

The building-- or rather the massive school building which I have no idea why they needed to build it so far away from the entrance.Bookmark here

It was bustling with students, students as in the freshies as they call it. It felt more like a university than a high school-- it think? I personally have not gone to a university before so I could only assume.Bookmark here

Anyhow.. we proceeded to a counter with a teacher wearing glasses, but before that, there was a short queue.Bookmark here

The guy in front of the queue turned around. He had gorgeous unkempt black hair, messy, but gave off a cool vibe.Bookmark here

"Oh, we're in the same class huh? Er..nice to meet you, I'm Kai," Kai had a surprised expression when he spoke.Bookmark here

The person he greeted wasn't me, but Liliath. He was sizing her up from head to toe.Bookmark here

I wonder what he's looking for?Bookmark here

To his greeting, Liliath only nodded with a princess-like smile.Bookmark here

"You're her brother, correct? Nice to meet you," Kai greeted me.Bookmark here

I wonder if Liliath looks like a 16-year old?Bookmark here

Nay, I should be more curious about why he's talking to me in the first place.Bookmark here

"Nice to meet you, I'm Noel and no, I'm not her brother. By the way, she's Liliath."Bookmark here

"I'm his brother!" the little devil retorted.Bookmark here

I also wonder why Liliath chose to remain silent. Something feels wrong.Bookmark here

In any case, as you know, since the kids, that is me and Kai started a conversation, our parents followed suit. Of course, regarding what they were talking about-- i had no idea.Bookmark here

"So, what TALENT got you here in the first place?"Kai asked me.Bookmark here

"How about you go first?"Bookmark here

"O-Okay, my TALENT has to do with the ability to access another person's mental strength.. that's a vague way to put it.. er.. I can also measure will power, cognitive ability and EQ. Yep."Bookmark here

Wow heck? How is that a troublesome TALENT?Bookmark here

I flashed him a funny look, he scratched his cheeks in response.Bookmark here

"How about your--"Bookmark here

"NEXT!"Bookmark here

The teacher at the booth called out. Oh, it's Kai's turn.Bookmark here

He flinched, quickly turned around to register his name, and our parents broke off their conversation.Bookmark here

"Be careful."Bookmark here

"Hm?" I tilted my head at LIlith's words.Bookmark here

"He's aiming for me."Bookmark here

"Huh? Seriously?" Though surprised, I voiced it in a quiet tone.Bookmark here

"He mentioned about being able to read and access our mental aptitude, thus, we can infer that he has some ability to gauge someone's psychology and use it to his advantage."Bookmark here

I thought that Liliath was being too vigilant-- and Kai being a whore because he tried to converse with Liliath first of all people-- since she hasn't met many people yet but.. thinking back to my conversation with Kai, when the teacher called out, he left me dangling, as if he was in a rush.Bookmark here

Also.. Kai was aiming for Liliath huh? I suppose he fell for her at first sight? Hm.. makes me wonder if Liliath has charm magic or something-- it might be possible. I should ask her about it.Bookmark here

"Additionally, did you not mention before you intend to hide information regarding your abilities?" Liliath raised her eyebrows.Bookmark here

Uh.. I have no words to retort here..Bookmark here

"Sorry, you're right. I'll be more careful from now on.."Bookmark here

It sucks to be reprimanded by someone, what's more, reprimanded by Liliath.Bookmark here

Kai's family left promptly and it was our turn.Bookmark here

"Noel right?"Bookmark here

"Yes, that's me," the teacher with glasses I realized had quite a stern look on her face. Her name is Glib, as shown on her name tag. What an odd name..Bookmark here

In fact, it was said that Gilgamesh is a country that has one of the 'best' naming sense for kids as rated by emerging nations. Fortunately my name isn't all thatBookmark here

"And Liliath, what an interesting TALENT. Good to meet you all, my name is Glib, and I will be the homeroom teacher for Noel's class this year. Alright, you two head into the auditorium first, I'll discuss the rest of the details with your parents."Bookmark here

Everyone of us flashed an odd expression.Bookmark here

Glib let out a sigh.Bookmark here

"The speech is about to start and it's my responsibility to make sure you two enter ASAP. So go," teacher Glib handed both of us a file each, containing the schedule for today's event and most probably more documents and information on our enrollment.Bookmark here

I turned to my parents and they both gave me a nod of consent. Novelle looked pretty lonely though.Bookmark here

Leaving it at that, Liliath and I proceed deeper into the building.Bookmark here
