My Demon Queen
Teacher Glib muttered for the next family in line to proceed. That was when she saw a male and a female. The female felt a little blurry in her mind.
Glib flipped through the list, her eyes landing on Noel's name. Reading through the description, she realized that the girl is a person with special circumstances.
Also, there was a note that mentioned Noel as a student that she had to pay special attention to.
"Manifestation into reality.."
Noel's talent, she remembered reading about it.
"Yes, that's me," Noel replied.
Glib narrowed her here at him-- an incorporeal sphere that only she could see due to her TALENT had little scratches here and there-- he had light mental wounds.
He had a good life.
"And Liliath," Glib turned to look at Liliath whose muddled figure before had cleared up.
Her gorgeous velvet hair tied to the back, her alluring neckline, rosy cheeks and bewitching crimson eyes.
Her sphere had cracks all around, torn into shreds. Bits and pieces held together by an icky black substance, some fragments spinning around the mass.
This was the first time Glib had seen anyone with this degree of mental damage...
Liliath was-- broken.
That was the first thing that came to mind.
Faking a calm expression, Glib continued.
"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."
Glib thought she needed to talk to the parents.
"The speech is about to start and it's my responsibility to make sure you two enter ASAP. So go."
Liliath who had clear eyes, a face and reaction that didn't look like someone with mental issues bowed at Glib before following Noel into the auditorium.
"Can I ask a few things about your son and his summon, Liliath, first?"
Glib asked about Noel, about how it started, about his TALENT. Even they didn't understand why Noel's TALENT was deep and complex.
The main concern however, was Liliath. The black ink that held her sphere together, Glib had seen it in some individuals before albeit rare. Mental patients in asylums were among them. But normally, Glib would only see a few small blotches of the ink, a dot here and there. That was it.
Liliath was different, her entire sphere was almost covered by the ink.
"Liliath? She has been a good girl so far, there really isn't any behaviour problems besides her lack of common sense at times," Noel's mother said.
"Big sister Liliath had a bad past," was what Noel's little sister said.
"Potential wife for Noel," was his father's comment. Glib was taken aback a little.
"Please look out for any signs of a mental breakdown from Liliath, she might be unstable."
At Glib's words, the three nodded seriously as if they already knew about it. It seemed that they also understood the severity of the matter.
Whatever it is, Glib prayed that Noel would be alright… Though it was still unnerving to learn that a person like Liliath, with her degree of damage-- could still live like a normal person, it would be naive to assume past scars determined one's future conduct.
"No volunteers? Alright, Noel, pick a person."
The baton was passed around, the four individuals exited class and voting started.
Glib paid attention to Liliath, her presence was waning as always, Glib thought she had to have some sort of TALENT that allowed her to remove her presence.
Liliath didn't vote in the end, only gazing out the door where Noel went. Kai was the person with the most votes.
"Kai, pick someone as your helper."
"Okay, well, then Liliath."
"Denied," Liliath's crisp rejection echoed in the classroom.
"Is there anything wrong with my selection?" Kai pressed on with a smile.
The class gasped.
"Anyone else beside Liliath Kai?" Glib asked.
"There's nothing wrong with choosing someone with strong mental capabilities right? Liliath's the best in class."
"Anyone else beside Liliath Kai?" Glib asked.
Though Liliath's scars meant she had amassed an incredibly high level of mental fortitude, it didn't mean selecting her was a good idea. Glib knew that Kai would most probably judge Liliath as someone with high mental aptitude due to his TALENT, and she wasn't wrong.
"Liliath? Are you going to reconsider?" Glib frowned.
"My denial is absolute, I don't intend to accept," Liliath's glare made Glib feel an unruly sense of discomfort, much like being suffocated..
As Glib guessed, Liliath wasn't normal. She wasn't a human from this world to begin with.
"Calm down class, calm down, "Kai, choose someone else."
"Owh. Noel then." Kai answered Glib nonchalantly.
"Seriously?" Noel turned to look at Kai, Liliath closed her eyes as if she had given up from a strategic point of view.
It was a sign to say she was willing to at least tolerate this much.
"Noel, any objections?"
Glib entered Principal Navy's office. His bald head rendered her blind for a split second.
The Student Council President, Elyja, sitting on the sofa, sipping her tea.
Other teacher's had come to report on their observation, Class E, Glib's class was the last.
"Here are the reports."
"Thank you miss Glib," Navy replied.
"The person called Noel is a student of your class next year right, teacher Glib?" Elijah asked.
"MUuuu.. he didn't listen to my speech properly," Elijah fretted, "I guess he has high tolerance against the Rishell's serenade."
"Most people do," Glib repplied. Which was not really the case...
"What is your first impression of the four noteworthy students?"Navy asked.
Noteworthy-- as in, students that have the potential to become a danger to society due to their TALENT.
"Eunice was quiet, she didn't speak much, nor did she use her abilities. Her mental scars are moderate, normal."
Eunice-- her TALENT given the name: Furtive Charm.
"How about Kai?"
Kai-- his TALENT given the name: Cognitive Misdirection.
Elijah passed a cup of tea to Glib.
"Kai was a little troublesome, his ego is problematic."
Noel-- his TALENT given the name: Manifestation into Reality.
"Normal, unattentive, and disinterested in contributing, he lived a good life. But his familiar is what I'm concerned about."
Though, Noel's lack of understanding over his own TALENT is a risk factor.. Liliath looked to be a larger threat.
"Liliath," Navy mulled over.
"She's the person with purple-red hair right? How come I didn't see her during the assembly?" Eljya blinked, a little confused.
"She has some sort of TALENT to remove her presence. However, the most concerning issue is her mental health. The mental damage she suffered is the worst i've ever seen-- i don't understand how she can still act like any normal person. It makes me feel like there's something about her that's just not right."
"How bad?" Navy asked in a serious tone.
"Worse than even the mental patients in the ward I've come across in the past," Glib answered with a grim expression. Elijah gasped.
"If that's the case then I'll notify the watchers and other teachers to keep tabs on her," Navy said, both hands weaved together, supporting his chin. "I'll leave the counselling to you if needed."
Glib nodded. She was, after all, one of the few counselling teachers in school.
"I'll ask the student council member to keep a lookout to," Saying that, Elijah circled Liliath's name on the noteworthy student's list. "Noel, he's the person who summoned her right? Then isn't he in danger?"
"There's a risk he may be hurt by her if not careful, so I wouldn't say that the risk is not there."
"Hope he'll at least last till next year," Elyje made a silent prayer. Glib rolled her eyes.
"Alright, anything else to report?" Navy interrupted.
"Yes, one more thing, Noel asked me to punch Keaton." Glib leaned against the sofa, pushing up her glasses.
"Keaton? I will DEFINITELY take note of that," Navy chuckled.
