I woke up in Liliath's bed. Yup. I repeat, Liliath and I slept on the SAME bed.Bookmark here

Fuck. We aren't married yet right? Crap.. I really wasn't myself yesterday-- fucked around with the Charlie Charlie challenge last night and nearly lost my head. Remind myself never to do these kinds of things ever again?Bookmark here

I was sleeping with my back against her so I shifted my body to face her-- she was wide awake and was looking straight at me.Bookmark here

A different morning alarm resounded in the room-- different from the blaring alarm on my phone, it was a wooden chime kind of ringtone. Gentle but annoying nevertheless.Bookmark here

"H-how are you f-feeling?" she asked.Bookmark here

"I'm good!"Bookmark here

Okay, shit. Dangerous. First thing she says when she wakes up is that-- uh.. fuck. Did she do something to me yesterday? Nothing right?Bookmark here

I quickly got up and rushed to the bathroom. Checking my body condition, I exhaled in relief.. well. The hickeys from the previous day are still faintly there and should disappear in another day or two.Bookmark here

"What club do you think I should join? You said you wanted to try the archery club right Liliath?"Bookmark here

It was still early, the sun had just risen from the horizon. Class was almost an hour away. From my observations, there wasn't anything off about Noel, no visible side effects or trauma.Bookmark here

Yesterday evening, playing an unusual game that summoned an unknown entity. It came crashing into Noel in its last moments.Bookmark here

It was similar to a wraith. A creature that had the capabilities of possessing a person. In this regard, Noel became its target. In normal cases, the victim would experience various negative alimet after possession-- fortunately that wasn't the case for Noel.Bookmark here

I can't be too sure if it was due to the short time period of encroachment or degree of my purification spell. The important things would remain that Noel is out of harm and safe from danger.Bookmark here

I'm glad there wasn't anything too serious. Though, I can't help but find sleeping together immoral.. I had no choice! I-it was for safe measure. W-what if there was another such entity that encroached on Noel under my awareness?Bookmark here

"Earth to Liliath.. your face is red. Are you still thinking about that?" Noel turned to me with a troubled look.Bookmark here

I shook my head left and right.Bookmark here

"I'm sorry.." Noel said.Bookmark here

"No, you shouldn't be.."Bookmark here

"Liliath, are you still thinking of joining the archery club?" Noel asked.Bookmark here

Archery club. It was the conclusion we came to after discussion though I am having second thoughts.Bookmark here

"Archery? Why not the art club? If I'm not wrong, nobody from this class is joining the archery club, you know? I've also heard from some of the seniors say that the archery club has been shrinking during the past few years. They also said that it's best not to join unless you're prepared to be serious when it comes to archery, " Prune said.Bookmark here

"Hm.. " Noel pondered.Bookmark here

"Noel, perhaps we should join a club that we have someone acquitted with."Bookmark here

I've come to realize that there are indeed a number of other factors in play when deciding on a club. One being the people partaking in it, another being the general impression of the club. My intention was still inclined towards clubs that would not burden our schedules.Bookmark here

"Well. If you put it that way, I guess it's better to choose other clubs," Noel tapped his mechanical pencil on the club selection form.Bookmark here

"How about the baking club? We're always welcoming more members," Prune showed a forced smile.Bookmark here

"Liliath?" Noel turned to me for my opinion.Bookmark here

Had I been given authority to make a choice? In the first place, the main priority was joining a club together with Noel. Moreover, in comparison to me, he's more experienced with these items to begin with.Bookmark here

"I'm fine with anything so long as it's together with you.."Bookmark here

At those words. Prune flinched while Noel stared at me, unblinking.Bookmark here

I felt my face heat up. I-I said something embarrassing didn't I?Bookmark here

I covered my face with both my hands. I could hear their sighs amidst my turmoil.Bookmark here

"How about we ask Nine and see what club she's joining-- Probably the gaming club."Bookmark here

"Gaming club?"Bookmark here

"I think Lillith is fine with either option but well, if you compare baking and gaming, the gaming club probably will probably involve less outside-club preparatory work-- but I'm not too sure. Better ask Nine."Bookmark here

I felt a sense of guilt. Much of this stemmed from the way Prune interacted with Noel and I, not acting jealous despite the feelings she harboured for him.Bookmark here

"Feeling better? Let's go talk to Nine."Bookmark here

To Noel's decision, I nodded. Surprising was how Noel wasn't all that sensitive towards my embarrassing reaction, he was nonchalant. It made me frustrated, but it was a feeling I would keep to myself.Bookmark here

We came in front of Class C. Most students were unfamiliar to me however there were a few from our class conversing with students here. Most notably was Kai. It was suspicious. The amiable and open manner he was treating one of the female students.Bookmark here

"Excuse me, can you help me call Nine over here?" Noel called out to one of the students close to the entrance.Bookmark here

"Nine! You have a visitor!" the student shouted, acquiring the attention of most people in class-- that included Kai, who flashed me a warm smile. I felt the world spin around him but shook my head to remove the thought.Bookmark here

His TALENT was still unknown. My instinct had been warning me about him the moment we met.Bookmark here

I noticed the girl KaI was conversing with looked at Noel with a reproached indifference. I wonder how it came to this? They don't know each other right?Bookmark here

"Oh heya, what are you coming here for-- Oh you brought Liliath! Hey everyone come here, this is the Liliath I talked about before!"Bookmark here

Nine called over her friends, who swarmed over like those nobles I've seen in ballrooms whenever royalty entered the scene. Though I've never partaken in banquets or balls, I've snuck into a few of them to observe how such events were conducted.Bookmark here

"Oh my god! Hello! Nice to meet you, my name is Helia! I can't believe you have purple hair."Bookmark here

"Nice to meet you Liliath!"Bookmark here

"Liliath, what do you like to do in your free time?"Bookmark here

"Nice to meet you Lilith, do you have a boyfriend already?"Bookmark here

The small group of people ran me over with questions. The last question made me shrink away. This action made them laugh. Nevertheless, I spent time entertaining them whilst paying attention to the content of which Noel and Nine spoke.Bookmark here

"The gaming club huh? Shouldn't you join clubs that relate to your hobby? I would definitely want Liliath to join but you two don't play games all that often right?"Bookmark here

"Yeah."Bookmark here

"Unless you're a pro LOL player or Iceborn player or something like that then--you're going to be left out. Plus, the club leader is kinda strict with the selection of new members because there's a lot of people wanting to join the gaming club."Bookmark here

"I see.."Bookmark here

"I honestly think you should join a club that suits you. Like the art club or light novel club-- or an occult club for example."Bookmark here

"Light novel club?" I noticed Noel gave Nine a glare before he spoke.Bookmark here

"Yeah, didn't you read the brochure properly?"Bookmark here

"No.. Liliath, what do you think about the light novel club?"Bookmark here

"Sorry, excuse me." I took the chance to remove myself from the group of girls to attend Noel, "Light novel club? It's related to reading, correct? I wouldn't have any qualms about that."Bookmark here

"Then it's settled then.. but I didn't see such a club when I explored the club block though. Nine, do you know which floor it is?"Bookmark here

"Helia, you're in the light novel club right? Do you know where it is?"Bookmark here

"Ah, that. It's actually in the library. In fact, the club isn't limited to light novels. You are allowed to read anything related to books, be it manga or web novels. Nobody really minds so long as you're reading."Bookmark here
