Today is a Friday, I arrived at school early because I awoke early today since I did not do any training yesterday. As I made my way to class I was thinking about master Julius,what did he have to do that was so important that he had to leave?,come to think of it the only thing I know about him is his name, even though I was curious,I never bothered to ask anything about him since he didn try to ask about my personal life either,I always had that gut feeling that hes someone important.
”Why the long face Brian,what are you thinking about ”?
”Whats up Mike, you
e early today, thats weird ”.
”My grandparents are back,you know I can stand my grandmas nagging… what about you,looks like you
e lost in thought again,what really goes on in that head of yours? ”
”Not much,just boring nerdy stuff ”
”You might be a nerd but you don act like a nerd, if I had to say you act more like a misanthrope ”
”Misanthrope?,whered that come from… ”
”Sorry Brian,gotta run, have morning extra class,Ill see you later ”.
Mike Reeds, hes known as the second best among the juniors after Andrew,he just walked up to me one day and said he wanted to be friends, hes my only friend and because of his sneaky nature I bet Im his only friend too.After we separated I headed to homeroom class,I still hadn finished reading the book on demons so Ill do that while I wait for class to start.
As mike headed to his morning class after departing from Brian, he was thinking about the person hed just met, his family possessed the True Eyes, it is the power that is passed down in his family from generation to generation, the eyes choose their owner and this time they chose him after his father who was last to posses it died. According to his grandmother, their family exchanged their loyalty to a god for these eyes millennia ago and hed have to swear loyalty to that god when he turns eighteen.
The True Eyes allow their owner to see into the heart and soul of the person they stare at,thats what had cought Mikes attention about Brian,unlike everyone else Brian had two souls, one was completely calm and the other had an ominous energy which made his eyes throb.
After thirty minutes the class was full and our homeroom teacher,Mr Ross walked in.
”First of all we
e having a pop quiz ”
”We know!! ”,the class replied in a chorus, he always does a pop quiz on Fridays so now it is not even surprising anymore.
”Well its good that you
e prepared for anything,but before the quiz I have an announcement to make ” he paused and scanned the room. ”As you all already know,the annual SKATA exam is coming off very soon, the school is required to produce our best student to partake in it,but unlike previous years the competition among the year thirteen students this year is high,so eight of the best candidates have been selected to take part in a tournament starting next Monday to select the best student in this school… ”,
Mr Ross had to go silent in the middle of his announcement because the class was getting noisy with chatter, people were making guesses as to who the eight could be but I already made a list of the possible eight in my head.
”Now,quiet down everyone,I was just about to mention their names! ”,Mr Ross raised his voice,the class grew silent either in anticipation or because of Mr Ross angry look.
”This is eating into my quiz time ”,he said with a sign and then proceeded. ”They are Ashraf Ghunney, Chloe Stevenson, Philip Nyusi, Mavis Tenor, Rex Roland, Francis Grovel, Lacey Elvan and lastly Brian strider. These students should prepare for the tournament on Monday,now lets get to the quiz ”.
Basically every name I had in mind was mentioned but the last one… ”excuse me sir ”
”Whats the matter Brian? ”
”How is my name among the eight best in my year,clearly there are tons of people better qualified than I am ”.
”Actually you are wrong. Up to a few months ago you were among the students who were below average when it came to battle classes,but suddenly you started to show the most growth over the past months, you may not realize it but youve proven to be the student with the best combat skill and physique plus you
e flexible in battle and switch to new tactics depending on the situation on ground due to your smarts, and this has qualified you to be among the eight. Whatever, you
e wasting my precious quiz time ”.
The rest of the day was filled with normal classes, and when I made it back home I spent my time reading till I passed out into Saturday. I woke up with a nagging hunger in my stomach and just as I was planning my next course of action,Vanelope walked in with some creamed coffee and snacks.
”Whats all this, ”I asked raising one brow.
”You didn eat anything yesterday, so I figured youd be hungry ”
As my personal maid she was sure good at her job, she knew the most about me, even things I didn tell her, it makes me feel like shes watching me and reporting to my father,the maids hired by my father are not ordinary in the first place.
At the sight of the food my stomach let out a loud growl and my mouth started to water.
”See I was right ”
”Guess I can hide stuff from you, then why don you join me then youve not had breakfast as well ”.
”If my master wishes I will gladly join him ”.
”Yh, put off the maid act while you
e at it ”.
